  1. AC is nice if you stay on the boardwalk and near the casinos.  It will be too cold to swim, but nice enough to walk and enjoy the sea breeze.  We are planning a family vacation for my parents' 50th wedding anniversary this August.  They didn't want us to spend money and go anywhere we had to fly, so after considering the Jersey shore, the Poconos...everyone's coming to our house.  We live 10 minutes from a water park and within a decent drive from so many beautiful places, plus we have a lake and beach right in our neighborhood.  It'll be so much fun..thank God we have 5 months to prepare.  It'll take me that long to get the house organized

  2. Last day at the supermarket. Not really sad to go, but a bit nervous about new job tomorrow.  A couple of people who used to work there have already given me some subtle warnings.  I'm just trying to tell myself that everyone's experience is different and if it's that terrible, I will give myself six months and look for something else.  In the meantime, just enjoy the learning experience and having some money in my pocket

  3. OK, here are my picks, totally at random since I have only seen one of the nominated movies

  4. Thanks, edna.  It isn't my husband who's like that, it's my mother-in-law.  She has early stage dementia now, but for years, she has been a negative person, or at least puts that energy out.  If it's sunny, it's "too bright", if it's raining, then "The day is ruined" etc.  We all feel like that at times, but if it's constant, it's not healthy.


    Anyway, I got the job :banana::grin::thumbsup:  I start on Feb 18.  I actually just wrote my resignation letter for my supermarket job.  I will be in a great mood my last two weeks there

  5. I became aware of Glenn Frey in the '80's, "The Heat is On", "You belong to The City", "Smuggler's Blues".  Songs of my teenage years.  In 1988, I went to Colombia to connect with my cousins over there and they took me to several parties and clubs.  "Hotel California" was played all the time and was revered.  Being unaware of the meaning of the lyrics, couples danced to it romantically and people who knew I was an American begged me to translate. 

    Good music will always find an audience, no matter the era or country it's played in.
