Good morning Claudie!

Will try to always bring the camera alone. Sometimes hurry and forget.

Left nice and early for Big Papa's Mkt in Littleton. There were snow flakes in the air for a few hours in the morning. The temp was 34° (1°C). Nothing stuck, except the thought that winter makes a show whenever it can.

Bought a the market were avocados for 94¢ ea, half of the bigger half of a mini watermelon for $1.50, dark choc 1.5 oz (42 gms) Kit Kats w/3 for $2, a five pack of garlic bulbs is down to $1, green leaf lettuce $1.50, while sweet red, orange, and yellow sweet peppers (extra sweet, not hot) from Mexico were just $1.50 a lb.

Visited Rite Aid, my pal was not there. Went to WM for a new night light, multi-grain bread and flat bread. Shaw's had a pkg of deli sliced corn beef on a mgr's discount for $3.99 a lb.

Returned home to find the mtn road was being graded by the town's equipment. Top foot is scraped up w/a blade, spread flat, then a giant road roller packs the gravel smooth and level. The potholes are gone. Hurray!

The temp is 32°F (0°C) with the high to be 59°F (15°C).

Have a delightful day!

Good evening/morning Claudie

I think the verse is there partly to show where the motto came from. They did paint over it at the school's gymnasium. Sad indeed.

Time for this week's edition of Dino's Jukebox and 1981 was a great year for this lady. This song was her most successful on the Billboard charts reaching #2 in 1981. We know her for several other songs as well such as "Angel Of The Morning", "It's A Heartache" that was also done by Bonnie Tyler in 1977, and "Born To Each Other (Friends And Lovers)" she did as a duet with Country superstar Eddie Rabbit in 1986. It wasn't easy finding something starting with the letter "Q", but you'll be happy to see I prevailed. Here's Judy Kay "Juice" Newton.

Hi Claudie,

Feeling better today. Found that Zyrtec while cleaning up my mom's place. (I am still not finished. But, I hope by this weekend!) So, I took one and it took a while to take affect, but I noticed the difference today.

It is that time of the year where you accept everything to be coated in that nice yellow powder. Supposed to have some storms tomorrow night, so maybe it will clean the air for a little bit.

Back from a successful trip out. :)

Hello, grmoore, senile, sandipaws, hmcsretired07, Farful, dickc49, and MusicTeacher!

grmoore, glad to hear that the baseball team won yesterday. That sure helps their record.

sandipaws, it was a good visit to the chiro. :)

Farful, still haven't heard from Mom's doctor about her numbers, so I guess I'll have to call them. I figure they must be good, though, since I haven't heard. I just want to know, though.

dick,good luck on getting that floor done today (and the other things).

MusicTeacher, glad to hear you DID trade in your car to make a better deal for your newer one. I misunderstood something you said at your studio, mentioning driving a different car(somewhere?); maybe you meant driving your parents' car.

senile and hmcsretired, thanks for stopping in!

Good Morning, Claudie ♬ Have a great day of visiting the Chiropractor, your Mom, and doing some errands on the way home!

Yes, we did trade in the BMW on Tuesday for the Honda-CRV, and that helped get us a much better deal in the end. My Tuesday night update was very long, and that is probably why you might have missed it.

Thanks for sharing why you like driving SUVs. I am so glad it works out well for you! In my case, having done many road trips and camping trips over the years with our previous BMW sedans, we have always had problems with lack of space in the trunk, and then overflowing baggage in the passenger areas, making our passengers uncomfortable during our road trips. Now with the Honda-CRV, we will have more than enough room for our baggage and passengers.

Thankfully our Mechanic and one of his workers found our new used Honda-CRV to be in excellent condition yesterday morning! PTL!

This morning, my Mom and I will do some errands together including going to the Dealership where we bought the 2005 Honda-CRV LX, to pay them in full with a Cashier's Check and fully close the deal. Thankfully doing the deal this way helped out with the good negotiations on Tuesday. This afternoon I have one Student to teach at 3:00 PM. After teaching, I will be going to the Farmer's Market.

Have a Beautiful Thursday!

Heading over to finish that floor shortly. We will get that done and see what else we can get done. The floor is a must. There are a few other things that should get finished too, but maybe not today!

Greetings Claudie/friends:

Happy Thursday! 54 degrees this morning.

Walk complete; breakfast in a few minutes.

My 2014 debut as a sub for baseball was successful and they won 12-6 after a slow start. Team is now 19-23 (the move to the Sun Belt Conference has been a tough road.).

Off to continue the day.

Have a great day all!

Good morning, Dino, MidnightSun, JM, attitash, scout, and TUrtLE!

Dino, that's too bad that the verse has to be taken off the school wall. Did it have "Philippians 4:13" there, too? Not that it bothers me, but maybe if that hadn't been on there, too....well, maybe you see what I mean.

MidnightSun, hope you have your camera with you today (when you go to the markets and stores); you never know when there will be a picture-taking opportunity.

JM, good luck on tonight's gam. BTW, the Falcons' schedule has come out, but I haven't really had a chance to look it over. I DID see that they open the season at home against the 'Aints. Wow! Whatta way to start off!

attitash, nice that you can get your errands done riding your bike instead of driving your car. How was yesterday's golf game?

scout, I see the series is tied at 2 to 2. Hopefully the Pens can pull out the next 2 games. BTW, who is CBJ?

TUrtLE, aaawww, such cute little goats! :)

I'm a-goin' to the chiro this morning. Then I'll be stopping off at Mom's on the way home. I have 2 other short stops to then make from there, and then I'll be on my way home. :)

Good Morning Claudie and Friends,

Have you ever seen quintuplet baby goats?

An Oregon dairy farm has welcomed a rarity with five new additions.

Mama goat Vanilla, at Fairview Farm Goat Dairy in Dallas, gave birth to quintuplets earlier this month. Five baby goats in one birth doesn't happen every day. In fact, the farm's owners said it only happens in about one of every 10,000 goat births.

They have had quadruplets born in the past at Fairview, but this was the first set of quintuplets.

All five baby goats already have names. They are: Janice, Charlene, Karle, Brian and Jim.

Here is another photo.

Happy Thursday!

Good morning, Claudie. Yes, and we lost the game. Her father blamed the coaching staff for the lost, but I have to look at the big picture. The girl I started is improving, day by day. I will continue to develop her. We have a game tonight and I will put my lineup back.

Good morning Claudie!

Even all the other Fed holidays have been moved to the observed 3rd Monday. Christmas, New Year's Veterans, and Independence Day are only ones left.

A flock of 100 mallards flew into the CT River just in front of me in the afternoon. No camera with me, so a stock photo is given. The males have the iridescent green necks and heads. They stopped to rest, then will proceed with their journey to Canada.

Looked up the BioShock followup on Xbox 360 for the BioShock 2 and BioShock Infinite games on Ebay and Amazon. Amazon gave me $10 off my order to open yet 1 more credit card. Ordered the both of them used for under $16 together inc/pstg and my one time discount.

Will always pay direct from from my checking account. Should receive these fascinating games in 1 to 2 weeks. Reviews are fantastic for both follow up games. Looking forward to their new challenges, the astounding graphics and surround sounds.

Spent a few hours playing BioShock. Want to get used to the Xbox game controller after a 4 year vacation. Still occasionally hit the wrong button.

Drove to the P.O. to find my box packed to the gill w/mail. Was not counting on receiving so much mail. On the return home using the cruise control, the mpg reached 39. Not too bad for the Dart, now with 1,086 miles.

Saw very light rain yesterday. More like drizzle. The temp is 38°F (3°C), the high will be (51°C). Wind gusts are 23 mph (37 kph). Off to the market later for some light shopping.

Have a fantastic day!

Good evening/morning Claudie


I've been following a local story from my high school, Parkersburg South, over a T Shirt that has stirred controversy. These are shirts worn by the Patriot Wrestling team and contains the following Bible verse on the back of them:

"I can do all things through him who strengthens me" - Philippians 4:13

Well, a group called "Freedom From Religion" based out of Wisconsin has considered the shirts offensive and has asked the team to not wear them. This same verse has been posted on the walls of the Gymnasium at the school. So, the Wood county Board of Education has caved to this group and decided to paint over the verse in the gymnasium at Parkersburg South. This has caused a lot of talk and outrage in the area.

I have the reports and updates from WTAP-TV linked here.

Okay, here's my thoughts on this. It is truly sad that one complaint from a group 600 miles away is causing someone to take this step. Has anyone of these guys from Madison, WI visited the area let alone care? I think in a time of shootings and stabbings going on in public schools, is this really the time to take God out of school? I feel we need him in schools now more than ever. This is truly a good exercise for these students in standing for what you believe in and time for a bunch of school board members to be shown the door.

Stepping off the soapbox for another night. Dino's jukebox is back to it's regular night tomorrow. Yes, TT it is "Queen of Hearts." I'll play it tomorrow night. See ya then.

Good evening, Mrs. Wrench, Farful, dickc49, and Robustus!

Mrs. Wrench, I know the Golden Corral that we go to only has breakfast on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. I didn't know that about Denny's discount. I agree, the military discount should be higher than for AARP members. We have a Denny's in our town; I wonder how much their senior discount is.

Farful, didn't hear from the doctor's office about Mom's numbers, so I just might have to call them myself. Hope you get some good rain to drop that pollen count. I think ours might be just about done (I hope!).

dick, I know about that kind of flooring you're putting down. In fact, hubby put it down in Daughter's house (in her dining room). He said it was a lot easier b/c the pieces just locked together. Hope you get the floor finished tomorrow.

Robustus, I know what you mean about the rain...I thought we were going to have more than we actually got, too....sprinkles (for about 5 minutes) a coupla times. Oh, well! Hope you feel better!

Time for me to sign out for the night.

Good night, everybuddy!

Good evening Claudie,

Trying to get things done around here. Slowly getting around to it, but hopefully I can get it done!

The rain didn't come as much as I expected yesterday. Basically it sprinkled a little and it got windy for part of the evening last night, but that was it. However, the wind sure stirred up the pollen! I haven't felt too well since.

I used to take some Zyrtec for my hay fever. However, I don't get around taking it as much as I used to. But, now it looks like I need to get back on it!

Good evening Claudie,

Getting here late tonight. After waking up and reading some of the paper, I went to my daughters house to help her fiancee start putting down the new hardwood floor. It is one of these newer engineered floors that does not get nailed down, but the pieces lock together. After a few directions were read we started. We now have a bit over 3/4 installed. Both of us were tired and our knees said, "Enough"! We will finish it tomorrow. We still need to put the wall trim on, but it goes on top of this type of flooring. Much different than the regular 2 1/4 inch strip oak I have done, but trimming around doors is still a pain! My new grandson hardly had a peep to say all day as we worked with a power saw and banged on things. What a good baby Nicholas is!
Had two good days of spring skiing. The weather was a bit warm, so the snow was a bit sloppy, but still it skied well. I will go again, but not until probably Sunday.

Good evening Claudie, sounds like a good shopping day for you today. None of our grocery stores give a discount. Sounds like you have a lot of work in store for your family get together, hope you have good weather.

This morning we were going to Golden Coral for breakfast only to find they were closed, I'm wondering if they only have it on the week ends.We ended up at Denny's, did you know that they give you a 15 % discount with AARP but only 10% for Military, I think it should be turned around. After that it was a trip to Sams for gas & a few other things.

I see where NJ has the highest pollen count around, guess that's why my eyes have been burning so bad.

Good Morning, Claudie ♪ That is good the rain in your area yesterday cleaned up the air some more and will allow you to comfortably open up the windows around your home for fresh air.

I am glad your day of errands went well, and you got some Senior Discounts and coupon discounts at the grocery stores too! Enjoy the rest of your day!

Thank you for the congrats on our new used 2005 Honda-CRV LX!

Thank you for your kind thoughts for my Dad. My Mom and I took him home on Monday. On our way to buy takeout food, we stopped by Draper's & Damon's. While my Dad waited for us, he walked behind the store and saw the Honda-CRV in the parking lot. That is how this sooner than expected deal all started. My Dad is in one of the car pictures from yesterday, posted below ↓.

I thank God that yesterday my Parents and I were able to make a successful deal with our new used 2005 Honda-CRV at the Dealership in Torrance, CA! Here is another picture of Me with my new used 2005 Honda-CRV LX. This morning I will be taking it to our Mechanic to have him √ it out for himself and if needed, recommend and do any needed maintenance and/or repair work on it.

Today at noontime my Mom and I will be attending our weekly Prayer Meeting and Lunch fellowship at Church. After Church, I look forward to doing some errands and then returning home to do some tasks.

Have a Great Wednesday!

A very good trip to the grocery store! I started to buy some of the food for our get-together on Saturday, May 3rd, mostly b/c I was able to get some good prices (they're running a special this week, if you buy any 4 of the listed products, you get $1 off each one). Had several paper coupons AND got almost $4.00 for the senior discount!

PLUS.....I had to get special kitty food at PetSmart, and I had a $10-off-coupon (if you buy $15 or more, which I did), so I REALLY saved there!

Oh, yeah, the weather's gorgeous, too...about 73° and sunshiny with a slight breeze. Open the doors and windows!!

A good day indeed!

Hello, grmoore, hmcsretired07,and Lighting10K!

grmoore, good luck to the GSU men's baseball team. How are they doing anyway?

hmcsretired, thanks stopping in!

Lighting, thankfully the pollen count is going down, down, down (it's about 500 today). Hopefully, as the rest of the week goes by, it'll get waaaaaay down!

Good morning, Dino, yankie, jqwright, MidnightSun, JM, senile, attitash, TUrtLE, and scout!

Dino, Glad to hear the fingers are just bruised. BTW, I think Earth Day should be every day, too.

MidnightSun, yes, it seems like it's no big deal to move the celebrated day from the actual day, just so people can have the day off. <shakes head>

JM, so the girl with the busy-body father sat out last night?

attitash, have a good golf day!

TUrtLE, thanks for today's 'tips.' :)

scout, sounds like you got a good workout at dance last night.

yankie, jqwright, and senile, thanks for stopping in!

Yay! Back to my Wednesday shopping day (for one week, at least)! I have a few other places to stop, too, but the grocery store will be the final stop before I head home.

Good Morning Claudie and Friends,

Food Spoilage Guide concludes.

UNMARKED ITEMS
You know it is well beyond prime when you're tempted to
discard the Tupperware along with the food. Generally
speaking, Tupperware containers should not burp when you
open them.

GENERAL RULE OF THUMB
Most food cannot be kept longer than the average life span
of a hamster. Keep a hamster in or nearby your refrigerator
to gauge this.

Good morning, Claudie. Alex enjoyed her birthday celebration, I left more details at my studio. We had a game last night and I knew that we would struggle with pitching, but I was not going to start the girl that father is an issue. I will go back to my regular lineup on Thursday to get a win.

Good morning Claudie!

April 19 was the shot heard around the world, the beginning of our Revolutionary War. Like other holidays, Mass decided to celebrate it on the 3rd Monday so the non working holiday and the no school day could be enjoyed by all.

Enjoyed exploring the undersea world of the City of Rapture in the XBox 360 game of Biosphere. Wanted to get into it for 30 minutes, ended up playing for 3 hours. History of Rature. Give the side bar a quick read.

Had thawed out a frozen ziplock bag of cooked chili from last year. Added two low calories cooked hots cut into ¼" slices some cayenne pepper and melted cheddar cheese on top. It was an excellent lunch.

Saw the Netflix movie 2013 "The Family" rated R 1hr 51m superbly directed by veteran Luc Besson. The wife (Michelle Pfeiffer), daughter (Dianna Agron), and son (John D'Leo), of the La Cosa Nostra family of Giovani Mazoni of Brooklyn (Robert Di Niro), NY are relocated to Normandy, France, by the witness protection program.

Head Federal Agent (Tommy Lee Jones) watches the family's safety. The family has that Brooklyn attitude of dropping the F bomb. The first day the son takes a brutal kicking on the floor in the boys room. The daughter goes on car ride w/4 guys who end up getting trounced w/her tennis racket. The wife goes to the town store for PB, gets chastised for being an American, then blows up the market.

It is a comedy, crime, and a thriller that has an excellent flow. The movie kept my attention from the start. The last 20 minutes sees one of the most intense gun battles ever.

As the Mazoni family drives off into the setting sun, Pfeiffer says, "Now we have to change our names again". DiNiro says, "All in all, it was good day." Lots of suspense, action, and laughter. 5/5 stars

The high was 72° and it rained ever so gently. Went outdoors for several hours and created a to do list for the spring. Will begin with a ¾" nylon netting for the strawberries and grapes to keep the small sparrows from flying in the sides.

The temp is 50°F (10°C) and is the high. There is an 40% chance of rain. It is raining lightly

Have a fabulous day!

Good evening/morning Claudie

The fingers are a little bruised, but not thankfully broken.


Tuesday night and Happy Earth Day to one and all. A lot of talk going around about going green. It's a great thought, but I think going green should be year round not just this week. Much like Breast Cancer Awareness and everyone breaks out the pink throughout October. It's great that awareness is raised and it's something serious that should be tackled just like all forms of cancer. It shouldn't have to stop on November 1st nor should the efforts of keeping our planet clean only be focused on the last full week of April. I think it's something that should be focused on year round. The planet is much like our bodies. We only have one of them, and properly maintaining them is important to keeping them around for a long long time.

Breezy and cool 50s here.

Good afternoon, attitash, MusicTeacher, and Robustus!

attitash, happy golfing (tomorrow)!!

MusicTeacher, hope your dad got home from the hospital and you got the deal on the car.

Robustus, okay then, tomorrow is the day you'll be working on your mom's old apartment. As for your dad, just don't let him bother you; that's all!

Hi Claudie!

Getting ready for work in the next few minutes.

Found out some-kind of good news. My mom got in touch with our landlord and he is willing to wait until Saturday to get things out. He wasn't too enthused, but at least he's willing to wait.

So, I'm off work tomorrow. I hope my dad doesn't bother me too much to get things done this time! However, I'm going to be hauling the stuff from my mom's place and storing it in his garage. Then, I'll sort things out that will go with me and store the rest of the stuff until I find something to do with it.

Well, time's ticking by. So, I gotta go! I hope you have a good evening. I hope everything went well with you and your mom this morning! (Sorry I didn't get a chance to read down.)

Good Morning, Claudie ♬ I am glad your morning went well with taking your Mom out to her errands at WM and the Doctor's Office for another routine blood test. Enjoy the rest of your day.

Thank you for your kind thoughts for my Dad, and also for the prospective used Honda-CRV deal. Yes, I usually post details about happenings and various updates at my Studio, so please do try to look for detailed updates on my Dad over there. I don't want to post too many details on my rounds, as it will attract too much attention from others that I rarely or never chat with, and I don't want to entertain too much attention away from my Studio at others' GB homes.

Today is my day off from teaching and I look forward to a full day of doing light tasks at home, catching up on rest after last Holy Week's busy schedule with my participation in "The Choice" Easter Musical Drama, and errands including a potential deal on a 2005 Honda-CRV that my Parents and I √ed out at a Dealership yesterday.

Happy Earth Day!

Back from taking Mom to WM for shopping and then going to the cardiologist's office for some lab work. :)

Hello, sandipaws, hmcsretired07, attitash, and Farful!

sandipaws, time for some relaxing. :)

hmcsretired, thanks for stopping in!

attitash, alright! You get to golf earlier than you thought! When did you think the course was going to start being open?

Farful, I will probably hear from the doctor's office tomorrow some time about Mom's potassium and sodium levels; hoping they're good. If they are, we don't have to do that again for 3 months. <crosses fingers>

Good morning Claudie over night & through the morning had me drive to work. Clearing in the afternoon with showers returning in the evening. High 13°C/55.4°F. Surprised to get an email yesterday indicating the golf course will open today. Tee off time for 10AM tomorrow! Have a great day!
