October 11, 2013

Good morning! Yesterday was an odd one. I had a bagel on the veranda & noticed that I was way ahead of schedule & would get all of my work in & even finally get some crafting done ... it's been a LONG time & I really miss it. Just as I started to eat & was smiling about my good fortune for the day to come, the phone rang. I had enough time to clean the house & then I was out for most of the rest of the day until 11:p. I didn't get to work, but at some point I was able to swing by the house, let the dogs out, shower & then head back out. Someone needed stuff from the store so I drove them. When they were finished shopping I came back, thought I may still be able to get some crafting in, so I settled down on the sofa, got my ripple afghan project set up next to me, put a movie on & sat back & smiled. Finally ... relaxation & crafting! :) Then the phone rang & I was back out until 11:p. It wasn't a bad day, but I just really really really miss crafting & it seems there just isn't any time to do that anymore. I did get to play a little bit of Sims yesterday during the moments I was home & that game was Diamond. My Sim Elizabeth is a child & has been working on her athletic skill, going to school, & doing her homework. This morning started off busy, too. I love that I'm working so much ... believe me, I'm grateful for the work! The FD got toned out just as I got up to let the dogs out & then race out the door to go to work. When I got back I updated my schedule for rides I'll be giving, then loaded up LizC864 6. My Sim Tasha is in the university on a distinguished fine arts award. She'll be going to classes. Columbus Day, Meet the Candidates, & Milligan Water meeting are all on Monday.

Buy a car this weekend, but only if the salesman is wearing a pineapple shirt & a white belt.

Corned beef has nothing to do w/ the corm plant. The "corn" refers to grains of rock sale used to cure the beef.

FOX TV announced that they're going to start accepting condom commercials on television now. I was thinking, is it wise to advertise something that could eliminate your next generation of viewers? -Johnny Carson 1991

Irvine, California:
Irvine (/ˈɜrvn/ UR-vyn) is a suburban incorporated city in Orange County, California, United States. It is a planned city, mainly developed by the Irvine Company since the 1960s. Formally incorporated on December 28, 1971, the 66 square miles (170 km2) city has a population of 212,375 as of the 2010 
census; the California Department of Finance estimates its 2013 population to be 223,729. It has annexed in the past an undeveloped area to the north, and has also annexed the former El Toro Marine Corps Air Station, most of which is planned to be converted into the Orange County 
Great Park. The city's mission statement is "to create and maintain a community where people can live, work, and play in an environment that is safe, vibrant, and aesthetically pleasing."
Because of its good schools, jobs, and housing, the city was chosen in 2008 by as the fourth best place to live in the United States. In 2012, it was ranked in sixth place. In September 2011, Businessweek listed Irvine as the 5th best
city in the US.

areas of the city near the UC Irvine campus, while the California State University Police Department has similar jurisdiction in areas of the city near the CSU Fullerton Irvine campus.

several hills, plateaus and canyons.
