    Holy crap! I was born, raised and lived my whole life in San Diego County until 6yrs ago when I moved to Wa. so the Chargers were my home team. I keep forgetting how good Philip Rivers is. Sorry Bengals, but you just got outplayoffed!
    Now I'm looking forward to kicking a$$ on the Saints. Go Hawks!!!

    Gods, it's cold. Gods, there's a more-than decent amount of snow (my house got about 6.5", other areas nearby got over a foot).

    I have homemade chicken biriyani in my new lunch gadget. It's something new I picked up and my best friend swears by for lunch... a 20 oz portable Crock-Pot (http://www.crock-pot.com/specialty/for-lunch/SCCPLC200-G-NP.html for details).

    Ahh how quickly the spirit of the season fades away. I just went out to move my car for the plows, and noticed that across the parking lot, someone had moved their car into a space right beside the visitors spaces to allow for plowing. With the snow on the ground, you can't see the markings so they probably didn't realize.

    Well, the owner of the space went to the trouble, in the snow, to stick a pole into the ground in front of the space, with yellow construction paper and big bold letters saying "THIS IS NOT A VISITORS SPACE, PLEASE MOVE". I guess the time of peace on earth and goodwill to men is over for the year. Sigh.

      So far, so good. There's about 5-6 inches of snow on the ground now, but its still snowing, lightly. Temps are bad, its 3 degrees now, with the "feels like" temp of -17. The snow is very light, so hopefully clearing it will be easier. We'll see.

It's still illegal to carry it around, but that doesn't really matter 'cause... get a load of this: if you get stopped by the cops in Amsterdam, it's illegal for them to search you.

      New Jersey transplant who grew up in Buffalo, NY. I'm used to heavy snow storms, though it's been about 40 years since I lived there. Planning on making a huge pot of 5 Alarm Chili and cheesy/jalapeno cornbread tonight.

      Meatloaf and macaroni & cheese tomorrow. Pulled Pork and Cowboy taters on Saturday. Breakfast for breakfast, lunch, and dinner on Sunday. Comfort food all weekend!

      Staying home tomorrow and watching the snow fall.

      Yup, just got back from a trip out into the snowy world. Not too bad yet, but they really need to get better with the road maintenance. I crossed over from one town to another and you could see (and feel) the difference in the snow/ice removal.

    Good morning all and Happy New Year. Will be VERY glad to see 2013 in the rearview.

    My hopes for 2014...Civility will come back into style. That people will learn to treat each other with a little more kindness. That disagreements can be solved without one side calling the other a "hater", a "bigot" or a "bully". That we may see each other as allies rather than compet!tion. That we may strive to help each other up rather than tear down. That we may leave the next generation something other than debt and a more bleak future.

    Many thanks to all in the Klatch, and to our always faithful and ever present moderators. You all bring a little something to my day, whether it is a laugh, a suppressed tear or two or some good food for thought (no pun). We've opined, we've politicized (imagine that), we supported, and have sometimes even met in person. For that I am grateful to each of you.

    I have no idea what was intended when the CK took shape not too many years ago, but I think it safe to say that all expectations were surpassed. By a very wide margin.

    Best to each of you!

      I want to Thank My Brother Truth for putting into words something I've been trying to say for years. You nailed it My Brother.As we look forward to a New Year,I remember a quote from a children's book that I'm sure we All have read,and it is a quote that I sent to JBJingles today. I did this because she is an inspiration to us all…..
      As Christopher Robin said to Winnie the Pooh, " Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think."
      With that, I say…Happy New Year Family. Be Safe Everyone.

OK, that is making me cry now. btw, my aunt is doing very well now, she moved to AZ to live with mom in April, which is a huge relief for me to have someone in the house with her. Again, I thank you and RH, and everyone who posts here (well, the nice ones) for the laughs and company when I sometimes feel alone. I always know I can come here and friends are welcoming.

          Thanks for the positive thoughts all! TNT, MS hits different people in different ways, but depression is defintely a big one, the meds don't help with that either. Your friend should talk to her doctor, or maybe a family member could reach out to the doc...it could be the meds, but maybe more.

          I was going on this blog when first dx two years ago, but then I thought that reading some of the stories here was manifesting into symptoms for me...but it is a good support group.

  27. Truth™ With My Sure Fire 2014 Predictions

    Ok folks, here are my predictions for the coming year. I have a talent for these things...

    – A politician will get caught in a secks scandal. Twitter, FB or some other form of social media will exacerbate the situation.
    – A Kardashian will do and/or say something outrageous and the media will give it rapt attention and coverage.
    – A tragedy will occur in the US involving loss of life. Political hacks from BOTH sides of the aisle will use it to push their views on gun control.
    – A professional athlete will sign a contract for an otherworldly amount of money. Performance will be optional.
    – A celebrity will come out and the media will claim them to be inspirational to all. A Christian will proclaim their faith and be lambasted for it.
    – An alum of Saturday Night Live will make a horribly bad movie.
    – Healthcare in America will become more complicated.
    – Political attack ads will turn unusually ugly before the 2014 election.

    Well folks, there you have it! Happy New Year!

    Unfortunately a cucumber does not have quite the same effect on the libido as the nutrients in the carrot! But it obviously is as effective as a mental stimulator!

    With the Holidays upon us I would like to share a personal experience with my friends about drinking and driving.

    As you may know some of us have been known to have brushes with the authorities from time to time on the way home after a "social session" out with friends. Well, two days ago I was out for an evening with friends and had several cocktails followed by some rather nice red wine. Feeling jolly I still had the sense to know that I may be slightly over the limit.

    That's when I did something that I've never done before – I took a cab home. Sure enough on the way home there was a police road block, but since it was a cab they waved it past. I arrived home safely without incident.

    This was a real surprise as I had never driven a cab before, I don't know where I got it and now that it's in my garage I don't know what to do with it.

    Happy New Year!

          The Denver ComPost (what passes for our local newspaper) keeps running stories on the potential for marijuana tourism and the state economy. Not sure if it will all pan out, but my garage can be rented for reasonable rates...

          I think the mod was probably because the words all ran together against the periods and made it look like a spammity link.

          The only good about spammity is when you slice it real thin, fry it crispy as possible and plop an over-medium egg on top ... with a side of welldone hashbrowns. Yum!

          Good late morning to all!

    Thanks for the invite – I usually enjoy my coffee with a visit to my Reader and catch up with everyone else's blogs. After spending a couple of hours with my own it is refreshing to read others. Look forward to popping by regularly.
