    Wasn't Chelsea a beautiful bride?

    This is not political in any way - I was just stunned to see what a beautiful bride Chelsea Clinton made! She grew up before our eyes and when I saw the pictures of her with her adoring groom, it made me smile...

    Who has an e-reader?

    I'm lusting over a Kindle, but Sony and Barnes & Noble also have highly rated e-readers. So does anyone have one? Do you love it? What do you like best about it? What do you like the least?

    Dinner 7/23/2010

    Holy cow! I think this is the first dinner thread I have ever started. I'm probably going to get baked potatoes all the way from the local BBQ place. It's just Lori and I here and I don't want to mess up the kitchen. LOL So, what's everybody else doing for dinner?

    Any cat whisperers here?

    I will be bringing 2 of my mom's cats home with me. Boo, who is a solid black male, and Tux, who is a black and white female. I sure hope my other two cats aren't offended. I have my 2 dogs with me now and they seem to be getting along splendidly with the cats. Boo even plays chase with Junior...

    National Marfan Foundation Conference 2010

    The National Marfan Foundation held it's annual conference in Houston this year and we were fortunate enough to take my son, Myles. Some of you may know that he has been suspected of having Marfan syndrome, but never had a firm diagnosis. At the conference, he was seen by the top specialists...

    Anybody watch Dexter?

    I recently got hooked on Dexter! I don't have Showtime, but I found it on Netflix Watch Instantly. My girlfriend and I just spent 2 days straight watching all of Seasons 1 and 2. Season 3 wasn't on Instant Netflix, so I ended up buying it at Best Buy. LOL Any other Dexter fans?

    Sorry I've been away so much

    I miss y'all like crazy! I'm essentially living here at my mom's house, with Fisher and Lori, to take care of her. She's very debilitated right now and requires a lot of care. (Hopefully she will improve soon and things will settle down.) I've gotten so many PMs and emails and phone calls from...

    Anybody ever write an Amazon product review?

    I've been writing reviews of products I especially loved or that really sucked for several years now. My thoughts were that I've been saved from making a horrible purchase more than once by reading reviews so I wanted to return the favor. About a year ago, I got an invitation to join the Amazon...

    Good thoughts and prayers for my mom

    I haven't been around as much recently because I've been spending a lot of time in Houston taking care of my mom. (I really miss my time here, BTW.) Anyway, I took her to the doctor last Friday and the news was sad. He told us he thinks it's time to call Hospice Home Care. He said the criteria...

    New NCT Contest - Baby Pool!

    Most of you know that my first grandchild, Penelope Noel, is almost here. Her mother (my daughter-in-law) is Newnork. Indulge me by participating in a birthday pool - pick the day and time and whoever is closest to her actual birth will win! The prize, graciously donated by Doc, is an NCT...

    What's everyone up to today?

    I have been cutting down bamboo. I really, really hate bamboo. This stuff was here when I bought this house 24 years ago and it covers about half the property. You can't kill it!!! (Did I mention I really hate bamboo?) So we just whack it down with machetes every time the city has brush pick-up...

    Condolences to Newnork on her Grandmother's passing

    My lovely daughter-in-law, Newnork, just lost her grandmother. Because she is so pregnant, going up for the funeral is out of the question. I know how hard this is for her not to be able to be with her relatives during this difficult time. If you could keep her in your thoughts, it would be much...

    Brining questions

    Doc's question about chicken marinade reminded me that I have never brined poultry - because I don't know how you do it. I brined some meat for chicken fried steak, and used too much salt in the brine because the dish came out very salty. I made it again a few days later using way less salt and...
