I normally do not go to bed early, having been a "night owl" most of my life. But last night, after a long tiring day at work, I decided I would try to get a good night's sleep and went to bed at 9:00 p.m. Worked great, went right to sleep... Read more

Friday, October 23, 2009      8 comments

The copier in our office went on the blink today, and since it is also our fax, we were at loose ends. What to do? How did we ever make an office operate without those machines? Well, there was typewriters and carbon paper! Now I know th... Read more

That is the noise my microwave made yesterday when it "died" as I was trying to reheat something. I was a holdout for years against microwaves, but my DH and DD some 25 years ago decided I needed one, so they surprised me with one. That wa... Read more
