All man, that's brutal.... I think you should all get a badge for just showing up, let alone being there....

Well, it's time to go to bed. It's been a uniquely good three day weekend. I wish everyday was a three day weekend! But I'm fortunate that I love my job and the people I work with.

I'm off! See yall in the morning!

My grandfather would tell me to not go around there, he was afraid I would fall in or somrthing, I guess. But, you know how it is with boys, were naturally curious and every once in awhile I would sneak off and go exploring around those old buildings... Like tom Sawyer and Huck Finn...

I finished reading your post and a song popped in my head by (i think it was) a guy named Jim Stafford; "spiders and snakes"... Can you imagine being in there and some old black snake is in there keeping you company as well??? Ummmm not good~

Your right, just reading the temperatures in all the posts, makes you feel cold. And speaking of cold, today, I took my grandfather to the doc's and when I got him home, I complained out loud about the cold temps coming, he turns around and says to me, (now don't forget, he's 94 years old) "I don't know about later, but right now, it's colder than a well diggers behind"! That about did me in! He amazes me at times with the things he comes up with....

I told CAH that if the Ravens didn't win I would have no interest in the Super Bowl because I wouldn't care who won. I probably would have went against the Patriots, mainly because of Belichick, he is such a jerk.

To be honest, if the 49ers win, I will be disappointed, but I won't mind too much. When I lived in Maryland during the post Colts and pre Ravens days I was actually a Rams fan, so I hated the 49ers, but that has changed.

Sorry the Ravens gave you bad memories. I remember the Super Bowls when the 49ers and Bengals played. They were both great games, both very close.

Good Morning, Friends of all Beverage and Holiday Persuasions.
(With Christmas being the Holiday of choice around these parts!)

What else is choice?
Well......
how about this:
Days to the Season: 295
Days to Christmas Day: 337
Three weeks from today, Folks -- the one-quarter Milestone to Christmas Season 2013.

Wow. Just think. Three weeks from today we will be entering the 2nd of 4 quarters!
(The Season doesn't really seem so far away now, does it?)


Brrrrr!
Winter weather has returned and we record 32 degrees currently on our thermometer.
Eighteen degrees is predicted to be our overnight low for tonight.
BRRRRR!


And with that chilly though, you try to keep warm -- and have a Terrific Tuesday while you're at it.

Good afternoon!
It's another cold cold day in Norway.
Almost -20c today (-4f)
Its ICE inside our window in the hall and in our bedroom....
(we live in a old cold house, and are hoping to buy another one this spring/summer)

My FIL is still with us. Barely..
He is in hospital, and today they are moving him to palliative care..
Where he will spend the rest of his life...
Thomas is there when ever he can, and they take him home almost every day.
And bring him back to the hospital in the evening..
But they have to watch over him every minute, and my MIL is so tired, sad and helpless...
My FIL is only 65 years old. He was so full of LIFE, always with a smile on his face..
It's so hard to belive this is hapening!
There is not much left of my FIL. He needs a miracle and he needs it NOW!
So please keep him in your prayers... ♥ Thank you
