Today was fun and I want to remember it. Hubby and I were suppose to go to the beach, but I knew that was a lost cause when he promised his daughter he would take some medication to her this morning. Bright and early I got a call fro... Read more

A friend is in ICU in critical condition. Please pray for her and her family. This evening, I took my cat to the vets to be euthanized. That turned out to be very hard too. My job is at risk. The good news is that I will remain em... Read more

Yesterday, at the crack of dawn, I got up, managed to do my chores and get out of the house by 6:30 AM to drive to Seaside, Oregon for SRD. I had never really been interested in SRD in the past. In fact my plan had been to spend the day walking... Read more

Do You Use "Weather" As A Conversation Starter?
Thursday, January 21, 2010      5 comments

HBP was very good as far as I am concerned. It was just different enough from the book to offer some surprises without being so far from it as to be just annoying. I want to go back and see it again. The triple digit heat we have is not u... Read more
