It sure feels like it, too! Temps in the lower 50's and rain, rain, rain. I hope the summer is not quite over weather-wise. A "golden October" would be nice, please. Thank you. Today I'm without my car. Louise is in for her mandatory 2-year... Read more

It seems I need to go back to go forward. It's difficult to blog about the little daily incidents of my health and weight-loss journey without sharing something of what I've been through the past six weeks since my mom died. Writing can be thera... Read more

I went to the new ENT today and I do NOT have nodes on my vocal chords. They are somewhat swollen and very tired which is why they don't close properly at phonation. But there are no cysts, polyps or nodes. Now that I've taken the antibiotics an... Read more

Now that I got your attention, thought I'd share a link to a song today. I want to learn it so that I can teach it to the kids at our next English Day Camp at the language school in May. I may have a weird sense of humor, but I think it's so c... Read more
