Wow Jan is there an epidemic of dishonest people that run this country. Our mayor went to Paris for some conference that no one heard about. Of course he took his 22 year younger finance with him who was said to have paid her own way. She has broken up with him now. The conference had to do with a non profit with Iran in the title. Of course it isn't listed in the book of legal what evers. Now he's been charging tabs on his city credit card and hasn't provided the city with the receipts to verify they are business. They are wondering who has paid his harrisment classes. Some building company wanted a variance and he told them if they gave $100,000.00 for two of his pet projects it would be granted. The city has paid that back. It just goes on and on and on. I can't wait to hear the 4 p.m. news today.

It's going to be another muggy day. I'm doing the Monday housecleaning in slow motion.
I changed up my usual breakfast (Kashi Heart to Heart & milk) to an egg, Dave's Killer bread toasted, a teaspoon of butter and small orange. My blood sugar liked that better (since I'm down to one dose of Metformin a day).
Today when I was cleaning the bedroom I could hear the little chihuahuas next door barking and then a growl. I went out back and the pups were up on the cement wall looking happily in our yard and DS's cat was about 6' away growling at them. She decided to come in the house and get over it. The dogs are Arthur and I can never remember the other ones name. They love DS.
Nina, Those are nice looking pillow covers you sewed.
Patty, Hope you continue to feel better. Too much sugar can sure do a whammy.
Iris, I sure hope you and Ann get a new mayor! My word.
Ann, Our mayor has had 3 DUIIs I think. How many he didn't get is another question. During the last, highly publicized one he went to an alcohol treatment place out of state that no one heard of and I'm not aware of any accountability. They said all the nonofficial city business used to take place in one bar in town. He's a friendly, jovial kind of person so I hope he straightened out. Our current fiasco is that the entire city council took a trip to Germany on our tax dollars. Why they couldn't just send one is beyond me. A lot of people very unhappy the water/sewer rates are again rising and they took the lah de dah trip.
Well, girls, I've got 3 ripe bananas so you know what's cooking at my house!
Good morning. It is very over cast. Wonder if the sun will break through. DH is at DS's shop but will be home about 12:30 as I have to go to the Dr. office to get a shot.
This morning has not been much fun so far. I did make the call to the UCLA office in L A that does clinical trials. Of course I got an answering machine. Last night I did write my speech out so I wouldn't forget numbers and details.. Since I haven't heard anything back yet I've also written an email with details but have not sent it. Probably should get in the shower and then the phone would ring. lol
Iris, our mayor was to have a two week session of treatment for sexual harrasment. Darn I missed the 11 a.m. news this morning to see if he showed up in his office today. He was only gone one week but said he had started early and did complete it. I was betting he wouldn't do two full weeks and I bet he walked out. Last week he took a personal week off. He hadn't been seen all week long. The city has to get just over 100,000 signatures to force a recall election at the cost of much $$$$$$$. I hope the children like school there. I'm guessing their mother lives close by. I hope she is diligent in getting their homework done. Our EXDIL sure could care less.
We do have the Hallmark channel now. I saw that Cedar Cove (I think that is the name) was on last night but I was following something else. I'll be glad when the new fall shows start.
DH just got home and he said guess what. DS, DD and GS are on vacation this week and went to Catalina. Gee they didn't tell us. I am glad that DD and DS get along together. She does so much for him with carting GS to sport practice and picking him up at school. Years ago they didn't get along that well. I think DD has just learned to keep quiet.
Good morning, Patty I hope today is a better day for you. I laughed when I read your comment on whether you moved.
Jan we don't get the Hallmark Channel. We are on AT&T UVerse . They don't have that channel unfortunately. I used to have ulcerative colitis a lot. Not so much anymore but there is a lot of things that upset my stomach, that I stay away from.
Ann I can't imagine why Filner would even want to stay in office after all the humiliation. Wasn't his treatment supposed to be five weeks? What happened to that!
Today husband gets off work early so I had better get busy with cleaning up this messy house, Have a great day!
