we used to have a sub of the day, very popular and then it was discontinued...I tell people it was far to popular so we got rid of it! Get lots of chuckles out of that.
You have a great day too!

Being lazy and sleep more? Nope, I didn't break my New Year Resolution!

I have gluten allergies and Subway here in the Dallas area have gluten free bread. Not sure what other cities/states have it. Anyway, Wayne and I traveled to New York City last year and I saw a Subway. I told him, "No problem, we can eat there, they have gluten free bread". Nope! They had no idea what I was talking about. I thought that was strange! I can see a small town in the middle of nowhere but a very large city like that would definitely have that available. It was then I figured out it was not available nationwide. Not a big deal but I just thought they would have it.

Then.....
our first 200's level count.
Wow.

Coolish and damp here yesterday but today should be nicer, at least for one day.
The bottom drops out by early next week and by mid-week, the weather service says possible lows in the teens.
BRRRRR!
Right now, we rest at 45 degrees here in the capital city.

Well sir, Carl got wind of Binger's pending opera and he's making that the theme of today's open house.
Music from some of the great operas will be piped into the building, Carl will be wearing a horn cap and the door prize just might be a ticket to Bing's next performance.
What anticipation!
(Better be there.)

And have a Wonderful Wednesday, as well, Friends!
Looking forward to this evening!

Punctuation is everything here---do you mean:

yellow, snow-flavored tea
or
yellow-snow-flavored tea?

The first one would only be bland. The second one would be nasty!
I think I'll bring my own teabags unless I know where Carl is putting the punctuation!
I think the coffee contingent may be bribing Carl to slant his refreshments in their favor ...

Good morning, MMC!

This week is going by much faster than last week. I woke up this morning around 4 AM to get a drink of water, and when I looked out the window we had snow. The cars were completely covered. Then when I woke up a couple of hours later to start my day, most of the snow was gone. It looks like we got some rain on top of it and I heard it was pretty icy out this morning. It looks like they cleaned the roads up, though, so I should be fine to get to campus and back.

It has been very cold out. The past weekend we had temperatures in the 60's, but now it dropped back down to the 20's and low 30's. Next week we are supposed to have highs in the teens and lows in the single digits. I am not ready for that cold!

I am excited that tomorrow is a milestone day - yay!

It's snowing this morning! Very pretty, but it's hazardous on the roads. I made it in to the office okay, but I'm hearing other people coming in telling about spinouts and skids. It's supposed to stop during the afternoon, so I hope the ride home will be safer for everyone.

No news here, it's just Wednesday. Wait, that's Pinesday! Looking forward to seeing you there!
