Days to the Season: 258
Days to Christmas Day: 300

Yes! There it is! And it's opened!!
Indeed.
The 300 day Window is now gaping wide and all that can be seen is 200-level figures.
(With the 300's now behind us, can the.....dare I say it?.....100's really be that far off??
<< shudder >>
I'm just not ready to think about that, yet.

Nice and sunny yesterday after a wet morning start. The high was not bad (around 60 or so).
It will be a bit cooler today but still dry.
We are at 40 degrees here right now.

Allrightaringo, Folks!
Time to have a Totally and Thoroughly Thrilling Thursday!
And with the magic of the Christmas Season as your inspiration, you can't help but have one, right?
Yay!!!!

Happy Milestone Day!!!!

The weather is gray and blah today, and so am I, so far. Well, I haven't had my morning tea yet.
Thanks for the reminder, MerryCarey!

Can't wait to check it out!!

Hope your tea kicks in & that you have a wonderful day =]

Funny you mention Barista Prima Coffeehouse Italian Roast! We have a Keurig Coffee Machine and have been trying many varieties of coffee. I finally decided that brand and flavor is my absolute favorite out of everything I have tried! There are probably hundred of flavors out there on their site and I think I have only tried 25 of them. Yes, Barista Prima Italian is my favorite one so far! We have the Platinum Plus Keurig Machine (5 settings) and I make that one on the 3rd setting, Wayne makes his on the 4th setting. I guess I like my coffee strong but I usually only drink one cup per day.



My name was mentioned and it seems like a riddle to me too!!! Lol... I wrote to her but I think I need more coffee to figure it all out. Maybe that was just for Mark to figure out.
Thanks, CAH!!

And thanks xmastidings & CAH for the recommendation! Sounds delicious!!

Adrian has been drinking lots of coffee again (He goes in spurts) so we bought The Keurig filter cup, and some ground Gevalia coffee. It's really good!! I didn't know if I'd be impressed at first, but I like it!

We still buy the K-cups, but the ground coffee help save us money when we're drinking so much!

The last person to quit was for personal reasons, had nothing to do with the job. Otherwise, they seem to hire people that just don't want to work. Some just find better jobs with more pay.

I agree 51 isn't ancient, I guess I am looking at being someplace long enough to build up a retirement. I do have a Monster.com account, I do check there from time to time. The thing is, I do like my job overall, which is another reason I don't want to leave.
