Hanging in here, post-Sandy
Hi all! Sorry I haven't popped in til now, but I know you will understand things have been rough here. My block and neighborhood actually HAVE power, but as I was chatting on webcam to a friend in Finland and showing him the storm live, a MASS... Read more
90% of Long Island has no power and I am one of those hit. 2 massive trees went down from my property and one took out my power and the neighbor's as well as landing on 2 of their SUVs. The other landed on their garage roof! I don't know how ... Read more

Nursery Stuff or Is There A Lawyer About?
So yeah... all 33 of the friggin 7' tall arborvitaes except possibly 2 died or are on their way out. The nursery told my spouse that it was a "bad batch" and WAS dug up at the wrong time, in the serious heat. Two other clients also complained ... Read more
Loved having my older son home for the long weekend, and wish my younger son had come home, too. Played well at darts last night but the other team must have been playing nightly for 30 or so years, they were so good! LOL! I saw one guy hit o... Read more
Great Night and Day
My competitive (as opposed to the "fun" team, as my captain, Krystina, calls them) had our season opener at home last night playing last year's champions. We lost the first several games, and then I won my 301 singles match (single in, double o... Read more
Ooh, a Streak LOL!
Yes, it's 2 days in a row now I've gotten off my ass and moved. I hit the treadmill and worked out on my gym yesterday afternoon, and then played darts for 4 hours last night. (I only counted 80 cos I did stand around a lot, not being in every... Read more
