Hi Halo ... it turned and missed us completely.  Thanking God for that, but sad for those who were in the path.  It hit very hard.

We are gearing up for the holidays.  They already have Christmas music playing on a few of the seriusxm radio stations.  I'm waiting until the day after Thanksgiving to listen.  Take care all, and enjoy your day!!!

It's the same here, daisy. Christmas trees and baubles in shops and I heard carols in a shop this week. Hope everyone is well? :)

All is good here.  Thanksgiving is only 2 days away and I've been finding old recipes and adding a couple new ones.  I have acquired my mother's recipe book that she used throughout my entire life (copywrite was in 1952). The book is a bit older than I am.  Anyway, I always loved this cookbook, so I'll have to search for some new/old recipes to use between now and Christmas.   

If you're celebrating Thanksgiving, please be safe and enjoy, be thankful, reflect on what you have, not what you wish you had.  If you have God, family, a roof over your head, and food to eat, you have all you need.  Love you all. HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

It's a beautiful, sunny morning here in Melbourne.  Perfect for working with a bunch of 10 year olds. :sunny

Sunny south Florida was 50 degrees this morning.  In the last couple  of weeks we've been down into the low 40's.  Usually a few days at a time, but the temperature was sliding back up to the 80's around midday.   Today it's only supposed to reach 70.  A perfect day, weather wise.  We always hope for cool weather on Christmas Eve and Christmas day, but we'll be back to sweating again before then.  Have a wonderful day everybody.  Time online is scarce lately ... so, if I don't make it back in, have a Merry Christmas.... be safe, love you all.

Hi there... what's up ... anything new?  I'm beginning a new countdown (well, ok ... I've been counting down for a while now) ..... 1 month and 8 days from now is my last day of working ... I will be officially retired on April 1st!!!  Isn't that an awesome day to retire on ... April Fools day ... but, not an April Fools day prank!!!

I retired on December 20th last year, possibly the best decision I've made - EVER! :)

Come on March, 29th!   :dblu

Woohoo, that's awesome ... I'm happy for you!!! I was originally supposed to retire Dec 31st last year, but they talked me into staying 3 more months.  It was difficult when Dec 31st came and went.
