Re: My dear Joon...

We finally went out today. The storm that came through late Sunday night, left a beautiful blanket of snow over everything - beautiful as long as you're not out in it. But the property manager has gotten his act together, and our sidewalks and lot are well-plowed. My upstairs neighbor got stuck tryi...

Re: Sad and shocking news

:( Dolores O’Riordan, the singer of the 1990s Irish band The Cranberries, died Monday in London, according to media reports.

She was 46. :( No one's naming the cause yet. So young - damn :( .

Re: My dear Joon...

My Aunt Frances died this past Thursday. She was my mom's oldest sister, who was in her 90's with Alzheimer's, and the one that I got Bev and myself in trouble with. It was back, more than a year ago, when Bev told me that she'd been to my cousin's and saw my aunt being left alone in a locked house ...

Re: My dear Joon...

The pipes didn't break. I'm so glad I was wrong about that. Everything just melted and the washer is back online, thank God. We've had our January thaw. It was in the 50s on Thursday, and our kitchen and household stuffs are nicely stocked. I'm searching for another meal I can make quickly, and toda...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

Seriously? That was a beautiful belated Christmas Present! It was! I had a very nice belated present as well! Our boss granted all of us a one-off extra payment. And even though 50% goes off (taxes), the payment was large enough to keep my balance in credit. None of us expected this to happen (hehe...

Re: My dear Joon...

Duane's DNA profile came today. It breaks down as 48% - England - and we figured that 27% - Irish/Scottish/Welsh - :yay: I got my cushable! :yes: 17% Scandinavian - which we didn't know; we have nothing on Marlin's side of the family to tell us anything, so it may be where his ancestors are from.

Re: My dear Joon...

I saw something yesterday that got me to thinking about this year. Anne Patchett wrote an article about not shopping for a year. Specific no shopping, based on a friend's decision back in 2009. The friend looked around and thought she had enough, or too much, stuff. So, for one year, Elissa - the fr...

Re: My dear Joon...

It's day 10 of the Laundry Room Crisis... Good news. The little space heater is running. Bad. Somebody keeps leaving the door open! The heat belongs in the room! You cannot heat the room, and melt the pipes by leaving the door open! It must be somebody new because I told Frank that when the hallways...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

We just had the neatest thing happen.

The Honey and I have lunch on Friday's at the Steak 'n Shake, and today, somebody paid our bill. I was so stunned. I asked who was it? and the server couldn't tell me. God bless them! That was so sweet, and thoughtful. *happy tear*
