Happy Thanksgiving

I know many people are traveling right now for the Thanksgiving holiday; have a safe trip. Also, I hope we all take tomorrow to give thanks to God for all of our blessings and to enjoy family and friends.

Also, remember 3 NFL games tomorrow!

I know it's going to be a great day; Muffy is already making pies!!

Let's go to the mall

OK; so as I've said before I watch this tv show "how I met your mother" . It was on last night and they had a plot that one of the characters had an ugly secret from their past...It turns out that one of them was a teen idol in Canada in the early 90's. She had one hit and had to travel to every Canadian mall to sing the song...Funny video

Watch it and it will bring you right back to the 80's (not sure if that's good or bad; you decide)

Fox has cancelled the publication of the OJ "tell all" book and the TV interview to push the book... here is the link to the story.

Maybe the is hope for this country after all!!

Vineyard Vines Fleece

A few new pullovers and regular fleece at one of our favorite retailers Vineyard Vines .

I figured we can wait on the Northface winter jackets for a while and wear our fleece at least until mid December. Although the weather report up north is making me dream of snow...

I had to actually bring the hoses in for the

It's a Sunday and I blog

Wow. Somehow I got to the computer and started writing...I was entertaining a few visitors yesterday and last night then we headed out to dinner; my first thought "where is my warm weather?" It was mid 60's for the past few weeks then yesterday it felt like fall had taken over and the winter frost is coming soon. I love the winter; but I was getting spoiled by the nice weather (even getting away with shorts on occasion). Now as Thanksgiving approaches I need to start thinking about salt for the stairs and shovels...

Thanks to everyone who gave me feedback on switching to the newer version on blogger. I am still 50/50. I love technology and am usually never afraid to upgrade, try new things etc. So I do not know why I am so unable to move onto this new software...what's next afraid to use my blackberry?

Off to enjoy the crisp Sunday morning and hopefully cocktails by noon!!! Get outside and enjoy it too...

For every season, turn, turn....

OK, so I've been pretty busy and REALLY bad keeping up posts in the last few weeks. However, I thought to myself I'm not that bad. Then I looked back on my last few posts; only on a Thursday (some may think I'm in some sort of prison that only allows access to computers on Thursdays) what's up with that? I really have no idea; I don't think I'm really that much more busy than anyone else or myself at most points in my life. OH WELL...anywho I was signing on this am and this BLOGGER BETA pop ups came in front of me. I have no idea what the beta is. Does anyone? I know a few of my favorite blogs now have some sort of sign on to get to it; I have to admit I have no idea what sign on and password they are looking for! Sorry LillyandLemon I have not been able to read you in a while.

So I'm soliciting help: Can anyone out there tell me if and WHY I should "upgrade" to this beta? Being conservative I hate change!

Thanks for the help; and I will really try to post on a day other than a Thursday (if I can bribe the guards :) )

Crazy Life

Will someone please tell me when this crazy life is going to slow down? I feel like I do not even have 10 minutes a day to myself; and when I try to find some "downtime" with a book or stupid TV show the phone rings again! The best was the four days before the election; our house got hit with more "roto-dialer" calls than I thought possible (the best was a pol on a roto-dialer saying he wanted to outlaw roto-dialing!)

I have been remiss in upkeeping the blog (I shall try to be better) I'm sure I can talk for hours on the election, etc...however I'll save that rant for a day or two I think everyone else out there is coving it enough..

Well, my blackberry is buzzing I'll be back soon....

Happy Halloween

Wow, what a fun night with the two little ones. I made sure I was home to join the on their trick or treating. As most guys it is sometime impossible to get out of the office to come home in time to see the ghosts and goblins running around the town. Last night was actually my first time that I went out with the kids. Sometimes I would get home in time sometimes to give out the candy; however I never got out till yesterday. It is a great time to see your kids jumping up and down, seeing all their friends etc. We should all try to do these little things with our kids (I know I don't do enough) because these silly little things are the biggest things to the kids lives at this point.

Happy November 1st!
