October 1, 2013

Good afternoon & happy October! Yesterday I had Carnation Instant Breakfast, got the mail, cleaned the house, paid the bills, went for a walk, & then went to work for as long as I could before I ran out of time. Yesterday's Sims game was the culinary career & my Sim is a child in school & has been doing his homework. This morning I changed all the calendars, took the dogs out, updated my schedule for the week, & processed an incoming Avon delivery. Today's Sims game is Tahoe Pines & my Sim Michael Shallow aged up from a teen into a young adult, gained the equestrian trait & chose 'swimming in cash' as his lifetime wish. Michael headed off to the university towards a technology degree & besides going to class, will be working on his handiness & logic skills. Tonight is National Night Out ... leave your front porch light on & go out & enjoy a block party, cookout, parade, visit from emergency personnel, rally, march, exhibit, youth event, safety demonstration, seminar, etc.

Sandwich, Massachusetts:
Being from the north east originally, this place is, to me, is beautiful. I would love to live here, but the problem is the cost of living in the north east. The cost is why we moved AWAY from there. I do miss it though. I miss the food, I miss the style, I miss the weather. Don't get me wrong, Texas is great! It's just not what I'm used to. I'm not used to the TexMex food, I'm not used to there not being any basements in houses & the house styles are very different, & it's HOT. I'm not used to fire ants either. We didn't have those in Jersey. One of the things I DO like about Texas is the politics. It's a mostly Republican state & I prefer the gun laws here. The north east seems to be mostly Democrats. Considering how far right-wing we all are, we fit in better
here in Texas. Back to beautiful Sandwich; The population was 20,675 at the 2010 census. The Town Hall is located right next to the Dexter Grist Mill, in the historic district of town.

Holway House, built in 1789, at 379 Route 6A, which property also now currently hosts one of the original Nye Homestead structures, built in 1698, believed to have originally served as either a tavern or a shop, and which is now used as a law office. There are several attractions in

Seems like everybody is defecting from Russia. I understand they went by Lenin's tomb today & it was empty. He turned up later in Grant's tomb, asking for asylum. -Johnny Carson 1979
