The less funny a sit-com is, the louder the soundtrack will be.

Is it just me...

...or does anyone else suddenly want a tasty meringue cookie every time they hear the name of France's president?

Macarons are all the rage, it seems. There is actually a dedicated store at our local mall -- le Macaron.

As for the French president, it seems he and the Donald have a bit of a bromance going on. Could it be a shared love of KFC and well-done steaks? I'll have to keep an eye on the supermarket tabloids.

I read the book Jaws and it didn't bother me.

Then they brought out the movie...

I even look behind me in swimming pools.

Lesson - my brain will accept only what it can handle in the words. Someone else's visual translation imprints, scares the scales right off me.

I'm at least 6,000 miles away, so I wouldn't worry about it, even if I had plans to go into the water

When I spent the summer in NH my husband worked in the kitchen as one of the chefs. I worked downstairs using a mangle iron for all the tablecloths and napkins.

The machine I used was a bit larger than the typical home model. And I also had the option of a knee pedal or a foot pedal. I preferred the foot pedal. They also had a small one that I used mostly for the napkins. It did the work faster than the big one. This one is a home model. Notice that she has placed it on top of a wooden table.

So while both of us were inside working, the kids were outside swimming in the lake or Spike was taking free flying lessons. There was an airplane that used the lake as their runway for takeoff and landing. They took tourists on one hour flights to see NH from above. When the plane was idle, they took Spike up for some lessons. He still has his log book. When the weather was bad, and the plane owners weren't around, he would hang out with me and I taught him how to iron. I let him do all the napkins on the small one.
