Pull up a chair, snap your fingers, "double latte" and lets hear whats on your mind. Gripes, comments, compliments, complaints, ideas? Lets get them out in the open and see if we can relate, have some fun, come to conclusions maybe, who knows.

Good Morning Folks !

"Humbug Day" ... Allows everyone preparing for Christmas to vent their frustrations.
Use Bah Humbug Day to release the stress of the holiday season.
But, whatever you do, avoid becoming a real, bonafide Christmas Scrooge.

First day of winter ... what have we had the last couple months?

Wife and daughter will be baking all day.
I'll try to stay out of the way.

Coffee please, Bunny.

Good Morning everyone.

Temps dropped last night into the 50's. Cloudy and gloomy, feels like Christmas.

Spurs drop another Triple OT game. Glad I am not working for them. Running that Scoreboard is extra work.

Have a good Saturday

GasGuy, wished I had know about bake cookies day. Wife plans to bake some this weekend to take to people.

Another custom in South Texas is ladies getting together, make tamales and give them to friends and family. We are still waiting. Everyone have a good day and a good weekend

Good Morning Folks !

"Bake Cookies Day" ... People, young and old, celebrate this day by baking their favorite cookies. Make a party of it, and bake cookies in groups with family, friends, kids and grandkids. Don't stop at baking just one kind of cookies. Plan to bake a number of cookies. Try a new recipe, or two, or three, or....
My daughter will be visiting on Sunday for a marathon session of making cookies with my wife as has been their tradition for years.

Coffee please, Bunny.

Good Morning,

CG, for awhile, we had to do the possesion the old fashion way, pointing.

Tough loss for the Spurs last night. Almost landed tickets for that game but not sure I could stand a three OT loss.

Handi, you have a great day also.

Coffee to go.

Good morning Handi and everybuddy else coming in today. 16°F for the morning commute. Took the bike to the car wash for a cleaning. It was pretty dirty with salt and crud.

sout, that must be a nice mixture. Glad you were able to get the board fixed!!

Splinter, the sun was fabulous to see!

Sid, how did you call go?

Have a GREAT day everybuddy!

Good Morning everybody

Handi, I know a mixture of Tequila and Vodka that will relieve any pain. However, there are serious side effects. :)

Christmas shopping completed, until we get a present from someone we did not get a present.

Worked two HS basketball games last night, but had to deal with scoreboard malfunction. Quick repair as the possession light switch kept getting stuck. Thank you WD40.

Eggs and sausage this morning with the coffee.

Good afternoon everybuddy. I had yesterday off, but it rained most of the day, and I don't enjoy biking in the rain. I could have used that day, to help ensure that I reach my goal of 4,000 miles this year on a bicycle. Temps finally returned to normal, and we had snow overnight!

AT Hell's Kitchen today I had the Peanut Butter/Bacon burger. It was good.

Splinter, good use of Military time!

Have a GREAT day everybuddy!

Good Morning,

Handi, just hang in there. In the end, the pain and suffering will be worth it.

Weather is continuing to be nice here, but is expected to change. More rain later in the week, which means I will have to get the grass cut this week. Lawn mower just returned from its winter tune up. Just syaing this to make some of you who are shoveling snow jealous.

Gas Guy, thanks for info on the Bill of Rights. As a retired Government teacher, I always feel it is important to understand what they mean (and do not mean)

Coffee & biscuits please.

"National Bouillabaisse Day" ... a day to celebrate a tasty Mediterranean fish stew or soup.
I think that you will agree with me that this is a somewhat fishy day.

Now that all the musical programs are out of the way at church, this sound tech person can relax and enjoy the Christmas season.

Warm temps yesterday and more expected today. Hopefully we get some relief tomorrow so it will feel like the holiday season.

Beautiful clear morning. Mountains clear as a bell. Getting ready for the next round of wet Monday. To get out this drought, we will need plenty more of this stuff.
btw, we had a twister in the L.A. area as well yesterday that did some damage. That doesn't happen very often.

Jayrad. We could use some of that rain in Texas. So much for the old song, "It Never Rains in Southern California."

12-13-14. Guess it is a good day to pay bills as I can remember that date on checks.
