I have been away for quite some time, sorry about that, my followers. I just wasn't into the "blog" thing much over the past 1.5 years. Hopefully I'll stick with it this year. There a few things that I've missed... Continue reading

Are you watching American Idol this season? In my eyes, this has been a good season so far. I think most of the contestants still in the running are meant to still be on the show. One of my favorites... Continue reading

How many of you have watched Survivor from the beginning? I started watching in the very first season, and believe I only missed one season out of the 30 seasons since 2000 when it aired. I definitely liked some seasons... Continue reading

Temperatures were below zero these last two mornings. They are the perfect days for staying indoors, with a fire going, curled up in a nice warm blanket. Of course I couldn't do that yesterday (food shopping and haircuts for the... Continue reading
