Good afternoon! I got a lot done yesterday, it was a great day. I had a boiled egg for breakfast, cleaned the house, got the mail, went grocery shopping, showered, went through my LCFD e-mail, took the dogs out, made a chili cheese dog for lunch,  went through my outlook 2010 settings & still can't set up the mobile notifications, updated the apps on my iPad mini & then set up a recipe in IFTTT, went through my iCloud e-mail & made an appointment to get the oil changed in my truck, then sat down to work on the entrelac knit afghan that I'm making & it's beautiful. :) Good & bad news after that. The bad news, teenage drunkenness. How do you get a teen to listen? Drinking, smoking, theft ... breaking all the rules of the home & the state. I swear, I'm getting gray fast. The good news, I made a GREAT dinner last night ... BBQ baby back ribs w/ carrots & chocolate truffles for dessert. YUM! Yesterday's Sims game was Modern Mediterranean & my Sim (1 of 8 in the household + 2 pets ... it's CROWDED!) was Isabel Shuler (4th gen) who just had a daughter, Elizabeth Shuler (5th gen). Elizabeth is going to be very successful (as all my Sims are). Elizabeth loves the outdoors & is athletic. It's a little to soon to be sure, but she's probably going to be a sports agent. She's a Sagittarius who likes Indie music, fried peanut butter & banana sandwiches, & the color sea foam. Today I took the dogs out & loaded up the same game as yesterday ... Modern Mediterranean again. Halloween / housewarming party tonight! I can't wait. :)

As I look into the future I see long, drooling fangs, hairy hands, & dangerous toenails ... Yes, it means your in-laws are coming over for dinner.

I find renewal in daily prayerful meditation on the scriptures because they represent my value system. As I read & meditate, I feel renewed, strengthened, centered & recommitted to serve.

I'm a sentimentalist by nature & holidays & Halloween bring back wonderful memories of my boyhood youth on the plains of Nebraska, where I grew up. I still remember this day. I had to go to the Halloween dance w/ the ugliest girl in high school, Karla Malden. And I saved money because I didn't have to buy her a mask. She went as is. -Johnny Carson 1979

More than 50% of Americans say they shop for groceries 3 or 4 times per week. Instead, shop for groceries only once a week. Make a list, establish a budget, & stick to this routing to save.

Whistling backstage is considered bad luck because whistles were originally used to signal scene changes. An ill-timed whistle could bring an unplanned curtain drop on the performance!
