Thanks you guys. He moved there 3 years ago to take a job as a barista and fell in love with Paris. Now he speaks French just like he was born there.

Does everyone know that if you go to youtube (i.e. the main page) there are a lot of cute and funny videos there of cats.

Yeah, but it's more fun to share them with friends who will appreciate them.

Thanks CG. I needed a smile just about now. It has been a trying day.

I got to play outside today! All I did was prune off a boatload of sucker shoots coming up from a clump of witch hazel trees in the back yard. We have a huge bird feeder on a post that broke at the ground. We ended up bungee cording the post to a couple of tree trunks so that we could still lift the top to fill, but the platform was level so the seeds won't spill when the birds perch. While Himself was unemployed, we fed the birds sporadically while he was on unemployment benefits, then stopped when the well went dry. Now that he is getting his social security benefit I'm wanting to be generous with our bird friends again. Had to clean up a bunch of shoots that made seeing the feeder a bit difficult, not to mention filling it. Now that it's easy to reach, I'll have to wipe the feeder up inside and out (plain water only, just getting dust and bug eggs cleaned out) and then fill it up when it's dry. Can't wait to see them flitting about. Once the ground is soft enough and dry enough, we'll plant a couple of our shepherds' hooks for the goldfinch and hummingbird feeders.

How great is this? A Florida woman is diagnosed with cancer and won't have long to live. She writes her own outstanding obit before she dies. Emily Phillips must have been a great person to have known. I'm sure anyone who had her as a friend was mightily blessed.

A link to the full obit is in the body of this news article: Florida woman's self-written obit popular on social media - newsnet5.com Cleveland

My mom called me to tell me how much she has been cooking in her new home with all of the stuff I bought her. I was really hoping that buying her that new stuff would spark her interest again. Since she lost dad, she hasn't baked much and barely cooked. I think ending one chapter of her life and starting another is just what she needed.
