    Ooohhh, day off! Believe it or not, I even have the bowl games on! This is how one should spend a Monday!

    Happy New Year, everyone! I made JBJ's horsey shrimp for myself, just as a little splurge. What a way to start the new year!

    I never pictured Truth as a suspenders man but that picture proves me wrong.

      I've been known to wear suspenders from time to time. Cannot remember the last time I wore a full suit though. Probably my wedding. Denver is thankfully pretty casual.

        Buy some new boxer shorts and you wouldn't need to wear the suspenders. :))

    Howdy ho from beeeeyou teefull southern Cal this second day of 2012. We spent New Year's watching the Vegas fireworks from our 16th floor room. Fabulous!

    Tales to tell but the short one is that if you ever get a chance to go make a point of wandering through The Cosmopolitan.......the design theme is "crystal chandelier..." Mind blowing.......

      I'm going to bet that the Colts might be contributing to that list too.

    If anyone has a Fresh 'N Easy market near them, I would highly recommend their lobster ravioli...they make prepared dinners and I was surprised to see no preservatives or anything funky in them! Very, very tasty stuff.

    Good morning friends! I'm the only one in the office today. Woo Hoo! Maybe I can shovel out from under the pile of work on my desk. It's times like these that I wish I was doing more direct patient care.

        New Years was good, News Years eve noisy with fireworks and gunshots into the air. How was yours?

        Well, besides almost being assaulted on NYE in the middle of the day in a crowded casino, it was good.

        Were you eating something with bacon on it? What happened?

      • JBJingles_from the casa@RH

        LOL – No bacon involved...hubs went to potty, had $ in the machine next to me, some azz came up to scam and shoved a ticket in his machine, then hit cash out, I grabbed the ticket and he went ballistic on me, pushed me, screaming, etc.

        Sounds like you should try the quarter slot machines...it's a higher class of clientele. Did Hubs kick his Azz?

      • JBJingles_from the casa@RH

        Ha ha ha. Quarters? Too rich for my blood. Hubs missed him by 2 minutes, but I wish he had walked up when azzhat was in my face, he would have smashed a bottle over his head. Shook me up pretty bad though...

        Well off to get a new printer, new dvd player, and put Christmas away. Can anything else break around here??

        Wow....sorry you had such a bad moment there.....I guess when there is money involved, greed and utter selfishness take over all too often......Glad you came out safe.

    Happy New Year all! My resolution is pretty much the same as it has been for the last few years.......try to be better at managing our limited finances. I would like to be rid of my credit card debt by the end of this year!! The key-don't go shopping! (I have a hard time with that!)

    Did anyone order the D. Landreth Seed Company catalog? (Kat-insert link here :) I got mine right before Christmas, so I'm already thinking about what I want to plant in the spring. So glad I ordered one. Actually wish I had ordered a few more for gifts.

      I am so pleased and thankful that you did that! Buying seeds is a hopeful act, and we need more of that, generally speaking.

        I agree...Also a NEW GM,offensive line, Defensive line,Defensive Backfield,Someone who understands the NFL Draft and cute New secretaries in the front office. Yep,that should fix ALL the problems.
