I want to make Canollis some day, too. My husband wants them because the old man always talks about them on Everybody Loves Raymond reruns.

I am looking for 10 cents worth of energy. Anybody got any? It is windy out and the temp is only 40F.

Tomorrow at supper time some people are coming to serve us a buffet and try to convince us, we should vote "Yes" for a casino just down the street from me. This is the third presentation. They better have more than just coffee and doughnuts for us. If it goes through, we are looking at the next five years of more construction. We have just recovered from the Big Dig. I doubt I will even be around by the time it is built and up and running. It was supposed to be run by the folks who run by Caeser's Palace in Las Vegas. But there seems to be some problem with a shady past with a couple of the owners. So now they have some plan to get a new company to run and finance it. My daughter is dead set against it. She is afraid of property values going down and the traffic. She is even closer to the site than I am. I am concerned with jobs for the locals as are most of the folks in the building. They don't have any property to be concerned with. I am going only for the food. We get to vote on it next Tuesday.

What? a casino owner with a shady past? How novel!! The casino will definately hurt the property owners in the area. I have no room to talk against them because I frequent the casinos quite often, but they seem to target the senior citizens who don't have much income to begin with. I guess it gives the seniors something to do for entertainment. The casino we go to is in an old town in a run-down neighborhood, which might not have been run-down before the casino came. But I agree with you....go for the food! LOL

Been dealing with stiff neck and shoulder pain for a while now. Last week started to get numbness in my thumb and forearm, so much for ignoring something and having it go away!

Upside, my boss came into work today (I was supposed to be working alone this morning), I call my Doctor's office and they had a cancellation and asked if I could be there in 20 minutes, and since my boss was there, I could. I got into the doctor's office and got to see the doctor promptly! He feels that it is a pinched nerve in my neck. He sent me up the street to the hospital for x-rays and I was in and out of there in 20 minutes. So inside of 2 hours I was able to see the doctor, get x-rays, and grab lunch before going back to work!

Now I have to do some physical therapy because of my limited range of motion with my neck.

I'm not used to having issues, the last time I had to see the doctor for anything other than a physical or blood tests was about 25 years ago, I had a small tumor removed from my toe, LOL.

Almost 40 and I'm starting to fall apart!

Did you start noticing this severe pain in the neck towards the end of August?

Just kidding, hope you feel better.

Actually around the time that my boss went on vacation and my mom told me that she was moving down here is when it started, sometime in september. I chalked it up to stress, guess that wasn't it!
