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.
There are a few of us here to tend to post at odd hours. You do know if you ever start wandering the halls wondering what to do with your time there are a few who would share their wine/decaf/tea with you.

Wow. I am impressed. You could get a job as translator. You might want to learn. "Wicked good." Another Boston gem.

We did see "Wicked", and it was good! In Chicaaago!

I told our waiter yesterday (at the smoked BBQ place) that he was either Canadian or from Minnesota. He did admit to Minnesota. Northern part. Almost Canada.

Pac gets it too, though he might not qualify as a translator.

Webster adopted it: A Grammatical Institute of the English Language. In the book Noah implemented changes that helped to improve the teaching of pronunciation, spelling and reading. The "Speller" was used all over the country and therefore helped to standardize pronunciation in America. As a result, our country is most homogeneous in terms of spelling and pronunciation.

Guess it doesn't count around here since he was from Connecticut. Or Hahvahd.

It's a trip to a foreign land without need of a passport. Which, actually, could be said of many regions of our large and diverse country. Love them all as a visitor, but Dorothy said it best.

Thank you, Cooking Goddess, but my "skill" is borne from over 30 years of doing it, doing it, doing it.

My late husband, Buck, and I owned and operated an antiques restoration/interior design company for nearly 30 years. The interior design part of the business specialized in window fashions and, because we were a small entity, I was the chief, cook and bottlewasher in charge of designing and fabricating them. I have had many a client bring me a picture of a window treatment and ask me to duplicate it. By now, I can do it with my eyes closed, but the nice thing is that NOW I do it for myself and in my own time.

I had to really think about what I wanted to do with the front doors and I'm pleased with the end result.

Are you a good witch, or a bad witch?
