    As I was driving to work this morning, I heard a news story on the radio talking about local schools are letting out for the summer today. Seems early to me, but that's beside the point.

    What hit me is that the story mentioned local churches that are setting up free breakfast and lunch programs, citing that for many inner city Denver kids, the only full meals that they get are at school. That just struck me as unbelievably sad.

        Just got back from an early lunch. Turns out she is doing some new guy and wanted my advice.

        On a side note, several years ago I managed an all female staff, who gave me the nickname "Dr. Phil" since they said I listened to women's problems all day...:)

    Had a pretty nasty 30 minute storm yesterday afternoon. The neighborhood a mile away was thrashed pretty bad, obviously in the storm cell. Trees down everywhere, on cars and houses, in the streets. Looks pretty nasty even this morning.

      Thanks, lemon Lime please. Gotta go with the orginal.

      No lap dances last night as AleeD said I was in for a pre-weekend treat today. Something about playing Halloween in May, I just said yes.

A rousing HURRAH to them ALL. You will NEVER be forgotten. In a perfect world...Every Day should be Memorial Day and I Thank You for your service and your sacrifices.

    Good morning, everyone. Still overcast and rainy in the NE, heavy rain came in last night around 10:30 or so. I'm hoping to see some sunshine this weekend. I've got a contentious (sp?) conference call in a few, so just wanted to check in and wish everyone a safe Memorial Day weekend.

        Plan 1. Sleep with no alarm for 3 whole days. Any further plans depend on the weather plus the success of Plan 1.

        Thanks! I survived, not much bloodshed. It was dealing with a very strong personality in another country, who manages someone who tries very hard but comes up short in another country. One of those times I wish I could just go into their office and show them what to do while they are watching, but those days are over.

    Good morning chum-chum-chumarinos. Happy Friday-before-a-3-day-weekend.
    It rained here last nite! Yay. No more crunchy grass. Even the weeds were suffering. ;)
    Thank you for the scotch eggs, Caroline. I had my first one at the local Renaissance Festival. It was love at first bite.

      Dood Morning Sista'–don't forget the umbrella. Got an E-Mail from JBJ. They are about to dock in Estonia. I hope the towns folk are ready for the Wild Americans.

        Either I'm still half asleep or my fingers and what's left of my brain are not in synch–should be Good Morning Sista'.

      HA! It takes a while for the caffeine to hit the digits. Dood Morning to you, too, Bro. ;)
      Estonia. I'm so happy she's getting to go on this trip. She's going to have the best time! BTW, what is Estonian beer like? ;)

        I'm still waiting on the caffeine to hit my brain first-watching the Dragon on NASA TV. The capitol of Estonia is Tallinn ( which I guess means everyone is TALL over yonder ) and a mixture of Russians,Swedes,and others. I wonder if she can get a Coors Light,and import beer I am sure. :))

    Well,meemaw is babysitting today,so up early. Made scotch eggs for breakfast,and coffee is brewing. Kettle on boil for those wanting tea. Scotch eggs for those not sure,are hard boiled eggs wrapped in sausage,then breadcrumbs n fried. Good hot or cold for latecomers.

      Good Morning early bird...is the coffee done yet? I've never had a Scotch egg before,but they sound yummy. Kat did an article on them before and I'm willing to give it a shot. Anything fried around around here is welcome,Thanks. :)

      I knew there was a reason I loved the Scottish!

      When I first read Scotch Eggs, I was thinking Scotch soaked eggs...which also would have been ok with me :)
