DAY FOUR: STAINED GLASS AND STEAMY BOATS

On our fourth day in Paris, we awoke early and prepared for our trip to . We had lunch reservations at 12:30 at Les Bouquinistes, a Guy Savoy Michelin star restaurant. It sits on a street corner across from the booksellers who line the banks of the Seine. I really have to get over my … Continue reading DAY FOUR: STAINED GLASS AND STEAMY BOATS

HOLIDAY GIFT HELPER

While waiting at the AT&T store the other day, I came across a website that has been more entertaining to me than Pinterest. You see, Pinterest is all this perfectly beautiful food, craft projects, closet organization, and lists of delightful and entertaining projects to do with your children over the weekend that include more than … Continue reading HOLIDAY GIFT HELPER

DONE

Well, I'm fast approaching my fourth week out of radiation. Still have some itchy skin, and some bizarre throbbing pain every now and then that I assume is a sign of continued healing. They said the radiation would keep affecting me for 2 weeks after we actually stopped, and it did. However,  I was so anxious to … Continue reading DONE

A NEW DIAGNOSIS

"Hi, I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer." A slow growing, less than 2 cm infiltrating ductal carcinoma. It's grade 1, so basically as good as it can get for bad news. At this point it looks like the next steps are a lumpectomy and 6 weeks of radiation. So, we're really almost done with … Continue reading A NEW DIAGNOSIS

OH NO, NEXT DOOR!

Oh no, oh no! My neighbors on Next Door have been reprimanding each other for the vitriol being spewed. As a result, one of my favorite (most obnoxious) neighbors has chosen to leave the site completely! Goodbye, Marsha. You will be missed. We will now start keeping track of how many people are signing off … Continue reading OH NO, NEXT DOOR!

SUSPICIOUS VEHICLE  2d ago Kimberly Hey neighbors there is a gray 2008?? Ford Mustang on our street with a middle aged Hispanic man sitting in it, … Continue reading FUN WITH NEIGHBORS AGAIN

I WILL DANCE ON YOUR GRAVE

Maybe you should sit down for this. You see, I came across a story today that I just can't ignore. Some may find it unpleasant, even shocking. The headline: China Says, Please Stop Hiring Funeral Strippers. OMG. Wait, what??! Is that a thing? Yes. Yes it is. God, I love China. Squeeeeee! Without them where would … Continue reading I WILL DANCE ON YOUR GRAVE

FUN WITH NEIGHBORS, PART 3

The great peacock debate, courtesy of Next Door. Because sometimes people have too much time on their hands and aren't irritating enough to their neighbors. Beverly 5d ago I'm thinking about maybe getting a peacock with a couple of hens with the idea of establishing a free range neighbor flock. They would be noisy, especially during … Continue reading FUN WITH NEIGHBORS, PART 3

FUN WITH NEIGHBORS, PART 2

The Next Door app discussed in Fun with Neighbors, Part 1, continues to inform and entertain. I believe I mentioned something about Thanking and Flagging in my previous post. "Thank" and "Flag"" are beneath each comment posted.  Sort of like the "Like" "Comment" or "Share" options in Facebook. Well, I started seeing a lot of people complaining … Continue reading FUN WITH NEIGHBORS, PART 2

FUN WITH NEIGHBORS, PART 1

For those of you who haven't heard of it, Next Door is an app I became aware of after I moved to my new neighborhood in October. I was told it is a private group that includes people in your neighborhood who exchange helpful information on lost pets, trash days, suspicious people, pet sitters, good local … Continue reading FUN WITH NEIGHBORS, PART 1
