It is a public holiday here, the Queens Birthday...which is so funny, as we here in Australia get the day off for this occasion but in England, they do not get a day off for it, very strange!

Steve loves living here now for many reasons, but also because he doesnt have to work on the Queens birthday

This morning we have a bit more gardening to do, the orange tree branches need cutting up etc

We have just been out for a nice walk, it is lovely out there this morning

That's as good a price as I've seen $0.39 - $0.50 cents a cup.

I think the world should have the day off. Considering the job she has done for 60 years, she is remarkable. I can't say the same for her children though.

I am watching the Tony Awards. Our theater here in Boston, The Huntington Theater, won an award. It is a quirky theater. They often will put on a play or musical of a first time writer. And they work closely with Emerson College. That's a college of the arts. All of their productions are free. They have free concerts and free plays written and produced by the students. A great place to take a date when you are broke.

you can always use that manual k-cup thing that comes with most models and fill them yourself with whatever coffee you like. but 45 or 50 cents per cup is pretty cheap, imo.

dawg, 60 cups would last my wife about 2 weeks.
I've created a monster. DH has burned through the Sleepy Time tea, x3, and is looking for more. He makes me taste each addition. He's really excited about the Keurig as a night light.

oh man, don't get me started.

rich folks who haven't earned their wealth and just play nice on the backs of people their families have abused to gain their wealth isn't exactly something to commend.

just my 2 pence.

I woke up fully rested at 9:00. Wide Awake. It was a little cloudy out. Almost like dusk appears on the horizon or as far as your back yard looks at 9:00 without your glasses on. Thought, must be another rainy day. Promptly felt asleep in my chair before the coffee was done perking. That's how "wide awake" I was. Two hours later a giant whiplash while sitting in my chair woke me again. Looked out the window, my it's really dark. It must be really going to storm today. Then I thought, hmm. I wonder what day it really is and which angle is my house facing and what if I Missed a whole day. Why yes, 11 Pm is just the right time to go to bed. Funny, I don't remember going to bed the first time, but it must have been shortly after dinner.

Now, it's 230 am my time. Wide awake again. So it goes.
