Ok, so H1N1 vaccines are in short supply. Now we find out too much hand sanitizer is not good for you? WTF?? Now what?
 I have 2 big trips planned between Jan and March of 2010. The first one is to the Las Vegas area. I hope to spend most of the time site-seeing since I have never been to that part of the country. The second trip is to Hawaii. My daughter and her family are stationed in Honolulu for 2 years. Even though I am a nervous flyer, I am really excited about these plans. I wish they would invent that Star-Trek transporter thing (whatever it was called) so we wouldn’t have to fly.

 I always feel bad for telemarketer, they are just trying to do a job. But for shit sake, when I say no thank you and you just keep trying to convince me, YOU’RE PISSING ME OFF.

I love Mexican food, but why does it have to be so damned bad for you? When I was a kid I don’t think we even had Mexican restaurants in the Baltimore-Metro area.

 Don’t you just hate when your back itches and you can’t reach the exact spot of the itch?

 I think the housing market is starting to improve. My step-son and his wife just moved into a brand new house. It is a new development and the homes are nice and well landscaped. The development has sold out and the builder didn’t even have to lower his asking prices.

I watch the biggest loser every season. I just love the show. Even though I don’t have a weight problem and can’t relate to the contestants on that level, I have a great deal of respect for their commitment and determination. And just like any other reality show, there is always one person you just can’t stand. This season it’s Tracey. She is a back-stabbing, manipulating, pain in the Ass.

This is my favorite thing in my house right now.

A visit to New England

Last week we were in New England.  Our first night in Maine, we went to the Cumberland County Fair.  Lots of food, games, rides and friendly people.  I have to say though, it was the first time I have ever been to a fair where, along with corn dogs, pizza, and fried dough, they were selling  hot chocolate, hats, scarves and gloves (it was chilly). 

Monday we went to Portland Headlight.  I had no idea it was a lighthouse, I thought it was a headlight factory.

The following day, we took a ride to Mount Washington New Hampshire.  Mount Washington is the site of the world's worst weather. Recorded wind speeeds have reached 231 mph.  You can check it out at http://www.mountwashington.org/  Yes, I admit it, I'm a weather geek.   

The road to the top of the mountain is steep, narrow, and has no guardrail. It was a beautiful ride up the mountain, but there was ice and snow at the top and we were only allowed to go to 4000 feet.  If you're afraid of heights, don't take the Auto-Road.

This was starting up the mountain.  It really was a pretty ride.

This was the view at 4000 feet

Thanks Stewart, Amanda, David and Barbara for a great visit.
