I wonder,,,, after the gore in the coliseum, did the Romans riot?

perhaps it should be played as "hockey-finals-to-the-death"?

It was a group of people who had planned this all out ahead of time and didn't care if the Canucks won or lost. That is the sad part - they ruined it for everyone who was genuine.

But your last statement there is sadly true.

With some of the injuries that hockey players are receiving these days it is too close to that for comfort already.

And yet, Babetoo, if someone came and took away all your sewing supplies & your machine, you would no doubt long to have them again, frustrations and all.

You're an inspiration with your many projects, and I hope you'll be able to post photos one of these days.

Elderly opinionated mother + horrid evil sister who despises same + self-centered/scattered SIL + clueless brother + clueless DH + adorable 3 yr old niece with boundless energy + extremely tolerant and well-behaved dog + 6 hour drive through big city traffic = Shriek!!! Scream!!! Ripping out of hair!!! Looking for nearest bridge to leap from for a merciful release. Family reunions ( at least mine) totally suck!!!

Finally arrived home following another 6 hour drive through big city traffic. Dog and I are no longer shaking. Horrible weekend. Never again!

Sounds like you, Dog and Niece should take a second car next time.

Yeah. My right eye is still twitching. We all descended to visit said niece who lives in the city along with bro and SIL. Had to import the rest of us.

Quoth the raven: Nevermore. Good grief, it was horrid.

I was laid off as a kitchen manager on Sunday. My boss has finally decided to throw in the towel. She is being hounded by her former partners over money, shares, etc.. She tried very hard to make things go this past year. I don't blame her one bit, and believe that she will be better off without the stress. I hope her nothing but the best.

I can pick up some drumming jobs that I used to pass up because of cooking. Musician and cook isn't a good combination. One job has me getting home at 2 a.m. while the other has me up at 5 a.m. Plus, I already have a message on my machine from a guy I know who owns a meat shop deli type place. He asked me to come and work for him before, but I was just getting going with this last restaurant.
Oh, well, I will enjoy sitting in my boxers drinking coffee until 10 a.m. as long as I can.

That stinks for both of you. Sounds like you have some options available that will keep the wolf from the door. I wish you luck in finding the right situation.
