You're in for a shock. The Vegas of today is NOTHING like the Vegas of 20 years ago!! It's grown, it's gotten so HUGE and so much better. It's great. GO!!! Have fun!

Baklava! And oh what are they called...ummmm I always call them Greek Twisty cookies since I can NEVER remember the name.... Koulourakia!! That's it. Those are my favorite. Just the plain ones, with out all the spices.

Paul tried to make them once for me and couldn't get them to twist right and the poor guy got so frustrated... I took over and just kind of made flat balls and filled them with homemade strawberry jam. Oh, they were to die for.

My kid is bringing her grades up. Currently getting an A in two classes she got Fs for on her last report card.

She has been grounded and lost MTV/VH1, cell phone, and computer time (except for homework). I think even she is surprised that life goes on without these "necessities" and that grades dramatically improve when you turn in your homework.

Sizzlin, Happy Birthday to your son! Mudbug - congrats! You must feel wonderful right now - My DH is always a different person when she is grounded - those outside influences, yuck!

The beautiful sunshine this morning after our terrible storms with rain, sleet and snow. The sunshine was so welcome I just had to smile.

I'll be glad to see the sun! We've had none all this week. So, I'm am happy that we've not had snow yet! Lots of rain, heavy rain, working it's way here from the mid west, and the temps are getting colder by the hour, but hey, no snow yet! I only like snow for about a month or two.

The sleet, freezing rain and ice aren't very good, and then ours was followed by snow. We also, had the heavy rain at first and our temp dropped more than 60 degrees in just a few hours. The first around 40 degree drop took just a matter of a very few minutes. YIKES!! That's awfully fast.

Stay safe everyone!

Getting an early morning call from Cade wanting to know how I was feeling and that he would see me sunday and I love you Ma...Then later this afternoon, hearing a noise,looking over the covers and seeing Etan, finger to lips at his mom and sister saying shhhh, ma is sleeping. As lousy as I felt, those two little guys and Olivia grinning at me, sure helped
