No Power

I lost power last night.  I was going to post to this blog until I realized that with no power, I can’t connect to the Internet. So I went to bed instead.

It was a bizarre storm.  Just rain on the coast of Maine and VERY strong winds.  50 to 60 mph!  Took out trees […]


I officially have bronchitis.  Went to the doctor today and she prescribed medicine and told me to call her immediately if I get worse.  HOPEFULLY this will not develop into pneumonia.

I’m pretty sure I know who gave me this cold that has developed into bronchitis and is making me pretty miserable.  I know when […]

Movies Re-Made

I stayed home sick today. Spent the day watching TV, taking naps and nothing much else.  Just feel pretty lousy and haven’t any energy to do anything.

One thing I did do was watch the movie “My Favorite Wife” starring Cary Grant and Irene Dunn made in 1940.  It was re-made in 1963 as “Move […]

Today’s Thoughts (2/21/10)

A few thoughts at the end of the weekend:

– Went to see the movie “Dear John” today.  I had read the book so I thought I knew how it ended.  About five minutes into the movie I realized that they weren’t following the book and about fifteen minutes in, I put it out of […]

Birthday Fun

Last night my brother, Ted, and I went to dinner for my birthday. It was great! Really fun! Ted and I have the same sense of humor so it is pretty easy to make each other laugh. One thing that really cracked us both up was when dinner was pretty much over. […]

Here it comes…or not!

Last night I started feeling sick.  Not much.  A little congested, coughing somewhat, maybe slightly feverish.  Just felt like I was on the cusp of getting a bad cold.  This would be really bad timing because I am celebrating my birthday this weekend.  I am going to dinner tonight with my brother and then going […]

Ash Wednesday

Today is Ash Wednesday.  For those of us who participate in an organized religion such as being Catholic or Lutheran, today is the start of the Lenten season. We go to church for a somber service that reminds us of our complete sinfulness and the necessity of Christ’s suffering and death to insure our salvation.  […]


Ok…I can’t resist.  Muppet videos starring Beaker!!

That is enough of that.  Although, I must say, gotta love Beaker!!


My brother sent me this great link the other day (Yes…it will get stuck in your head):


Today is my birthday.  Yes, it is also Valentine’s Day.  But I really don’t care about Valentine’s Day.  Pretty much irrelevant as far as I am concerned.  Because February 14th is my birthday.

It seems like the older I get, the more I enjoy by birthday.  People smile and wish me happy birthday. I get […]
