Lady GaGa!

SHE seems to be the costume of this season... I "think" I just WISH I could pull it off... I LOVE Halloween. NO candy in the house yet...for obvious reasons... Maybe I'll do what my Irish Dad did when we ran out of candy... he gave out potatoes!
 Happy Halloween!!!

Meet Jill!!!

Yup....I'm "blogging" about a blog! 
Please follow a high school classmate, Jill and her journey.
It's been an amazing month following Jill, a physician living in Portland, Oregon and what has inspired her this month, in honor of her mother who recently passed away.

I've not seen Jill since 1975 when we graduated high school, but through facebook I've re-connected with Jill, and many others...
It's been truly wonderful...

My Happy Attic!

The world knows I work part time at Williams Sonoma... just over 2 years.... and I love it (and the discount)! It's NO secret it's NOT a profitable part time gig, I love and want just about everything in the store - and it's fun to purchase nice gifts for family and friends. But, one of my FAVORITE times is when our store wins a corporate contest and employees win STUFF... like this beautiful All-Clad 4-QT. Brushed Stainless Steel Deep Sauté Pan with Splatter Screen!!! Woo Hoo - and it retails for more than ANY of my bi-weekly pay checks too!!!
And where is it going? My attic...someday, someone may want/need it! P.S. ~ it has great company up there!

• Time for other states to catch on to NJ - AND pump our gas!
• My "DREAM" work week would be fit into 4 days.
• You should NOT have to hunt for your glasses to read expiration dates.
• Stop "knocking" face book when you know NOTHING about it!

Don't tell me ~ "I don't share my recipe"!!!!

A new pet peeve.  When people "won't share a recipe".  What's with that?  Are they seriously afraid you'll make it better then them? Afraid you'll market it and they won't get the credit? It always boggles my mind - why people are like that?  I have ALWAYS shared every recipe - if someone likes something - I'm proud of it and happy to share so they can make it, and if they've made a change to it or any improvement - please tell me about it - I want to know too!  Is it their ego?  It actually happens quite frequently... at first I think they are joking "I don't share this recipe".... seriously, how did you make it - then I realize - they ARE serious, they DON'T share the recipe!!!  And let's be honest... I doubt it's an original recipe, how many of your famous creations are totally original?  I don't think ANY of mine are... and I admit it!

Rugby - Senior Year!!!

Captain's Shake Hands before start of game! 
What will we do next year when our son is no longer playing on a team sport? He LIVES for his team, keeps him disciplined, in great shape and the camaraderie with his teammates and roommates in "The Rugby House" compares to nothing.  The pirates tied Vassar yesterday, one of the best teams in the league and in 4 years, they've never had a win against them...
Yes, a win would have been better, but we'll take a tie!
