Re: OK. I'm doing OK

Mentioned on another thread. I am breast-biopsy negative. Yay! I'm ok, but did't know for a while - 2 weeks. Won't be so nervous next time.

Life is a sweet thing, no matter what Art says. I like it.

Re: Binge TV watching - makes you fat

Then what do you do about the millions and millions of people who have office jobs, sitting in cubicles 8-10 hours a day? 5 days a week?

Re: Mitt Announcement within minutes?

If he does get in - he needs to be much less 'handled' than before. Just be yourself pal.

You have described it well, Brooklyn, and that has been the cause of many problems.

Re: Time to go home, Huck

I must admit I can cuss like a sailor but try to be mindful of who is around me when I let a cuss word out. I think a well timed cuss word can be restorative.

Re: Time to go home, Huck

Re: Time to go home, Huck

Re: What to do during blizzard?

Send some of that warm air our way! It's cold and nasty here. Like a Gothic horror novel outside, dreary, grey, dripping wet, dark, dead. Expect to see Dracula's hearse with 4 black horses galloping down our road.

Re: False Alarm

Now it looks like Connecticut, Rhode Island esp Boston will be much worse, up to 2-3 feet of snow.

Re: Anyone in the path of the storm?

Good luck, Brooklyn. Let us know you're OK. We fretted when low was knocked out of communications for a couple of weeks back in Hurricane Sandy.
