Re: R.I.P. Phil Marti

I was shocked when I saw that email this morning. I had talked with Phil a few days ago and he was positive that, with the therapy, he'd be home soon.

I've only met a couple of Fools in person, and Phil was one of them. A truly great [more]

...and a real stinker

I went to see Noah this weekend. Don't waste your money on this one!

I actually said WTF several times during this movie.

I am not a church going sort at all, but do believe that the bible is full of amazing stories. So if you are [more]

Re: Really spring...

This morning I had a couple of crocuses blooming in my yard, and fresh snow on the mountains all around me. Mixed messages.

I have a friend who adores their sleeper sofa from American Leather. They say it is quite comfortable. (Also comes in none-leather upholstery choices.)

Jello and other 50's-60's cooking

I can't remember the last time I made something with jello, but it has to have been a few years, and even then I did it to show someone what a particular dish looked/tasted like.

That said, I got a big chuckle out of the shock/horror and [more]

Re: Snow, drought, etc.

We had clear skies at night a couple of days ago and the northern lights were moving around in a spectacular way. I was out in the street with my neighbors oohing and aahing for a bit. (It was too cold to stay long, as always seems to be the case [more]

Re: Snow, drought, etc.

We had the best January I can remember in Juneau. While it was not particularly warm, we had lots of blue sky and sunshine, and very little snow. That is extremely rare in Juneau. I think that "polar vortex" took all our snow and gave it to [more]

Ralph Waite

Ralph Waite has passed away at 85. He was most famous for his role as the father on The Waltons.

In the last few years I have enjoyed seeing him show up occasionally as Gibbs' dad on NCIS.

Re: Some NYC History...

I remember the Beatles on Ed Sullivan. I was 13, and they were the most exciting thing I had ever seen. I went out and bought Meet the Beatles right away.

Hobbled

I tripped over a dog toy, cracked three little bones in my foot, and now am walking around in one of those lovely black plastic, foam and velcro boots. Ta daaa.

Re: Retirement: out or reach or boring?

For many years I worked in an office full of boomers. I have thoroughly enjoyed my freedom since retirement, and have no problem filling my days. Some of my coworkers are still working, or working part time, and some have retired. Of those who [more]

Re: The Frozen Apple

Longs Peak! Rocky Mountain National Park! My DH and I honeymooned in Colorado. We spent a night in a funky old motel with little cabins on Big Thompson Canyon (washed away in a flood some years later, alas), a night or two in the Estes Park area, and [more]

Personal dialect map

This is an interesting test, trying to determine what part of the country you're from by the way you pronounce certain words.

I figured that since my family moved around so much it would be interesting to say where this test says I belong. [more]
