I’ve been using my good silver Fossil watch for when I walk or exercise. Over the last year or so I would sporadically get a rash on my left arm right about where my watch was. I finally had Don look at it and we decided that the finish on the [...]

I got tagged by Mandalyn for this wedding meme that is going around. This kind of meme is hard for me because it’s a lot of questions and some of them I really don’t have an answer for and some I may not remember! So [...]

Do you have a lot of light bulbs in your house? I went around and counted 44 fixtures or lamps in our house that use regular light bulbs…..I did NOT count fluorescent bulbs, outside lights, chandeliers that use smaller bulbs and ooh, I forgot to add the recessed [...]

Last night I finished reading Phantom of the Opera and I must say that I did really enjoy it. It was a bit different than some of the lighter stuff that I usually read. I’ve seen the stage play/musical several times and we own the movie so I was [...]
