Am I the only person on the planet who doesn’t like Betty White? Even if I was the only person, I still wouldn’t like her. Oh, I’m sure she can be a nice person and all, but I don’t think she is very funny and she seems very crude and vulgar at times. *** I […]

The reason I haven’t been around is because (a) I’ve been busy, and (b) I’ve been sick with a nasty cold. The husband works in public service (post office and in a grocery store) so he is exposed to all sorts of sick people. We haven’t been sick like this in years. My poor husband […]

My local area got hit very badly- dams burst and the creeks and rivers are overflowing. I’ve never seen the creeks flood into the local homes like this before. My house is OK. I am slightly uphill from the creek. We have water in our basement but it’s under control. It’s a miracle, really. I […]

Comments Off on Irene Is Good For Business…

I never thought I’d say that a hurricane was good, but I checked the stats for my travel blog yesterday, and the traffic has spiked dramatically. The reason? The hurricane.

We shall never forget…. *takes off hat, holds hat to heart* I was on my bed, typing at my laptop (I write upstairs in my room, it’s quieter). Suddenly, I feel the bed swaying. Just a little. But it’s constant, so it gets my attention. As if someone is rocking the bed just a little […]
