Our cleaning ladies showed up an hour late. I was ready to get really mad as I have so much to do today until I saw it was a different team - these ones are top notch and friendly. The lead one had only been here once but she knew about not touching my cookbook/trinket shelf (too much on it, I do it myself), that Dad's stuff comes first but they do a quick clean of our bathroom as well and that the only items on my counters not to be moved are my KA (named "Brutus" or "The Brute" for very obvious reasons) and my portioning scale (you move it, you recalibrate it!).

So, how can I get made about a minor inconvenience when I get a clean house and someone who knows and cares about how I like it!

Love it...they were very well wrapped, nothing borken and all of it there. I got everything into the space I had cleared, but will have to come up with a different system. The jars are 4 deep and 6 across.

It was funny, the UPS driver has a tendency to drop and run. The front doorbell rang and it was a package for Shrek through the post office, so I went to the back door to make sure the packages weren't sitting there. No sooner than I got sat down again the back doorbell rang and there were my Penzy's boxes. At least he rang the doorbell this time before dropping and running.

Shrek stood there wide-eyed as I was unwrapping them and he asked me how much I spent, I told him I'd tell him as soon as he told me how much he spent on the tenor banjo that showed up the other day. I didn't spend as much as he did...

we use the word "bork" to mean something is all messed up. So, the typo works.

Maybe it's just my typing is borked! Yes, we use it too, but that one was unintentional. I like it!

"Bork" sounds Scandinavian or German, so it should probably have been "geborken".

Have you checked out buying Rx glasses online? Some friends of mine recommended Zenni Optical - Eyeglasses, Prescription Glasses, Bifocal, Progressive Eyeglasses, Rimless Glasses. I was happy with my two pairs of bifocals with clip on sunglasses for less than $105 including shipping.
