3:00pm est today, dr. phil (i know, i know) will be interviewing survivors from the shipwrecked italian cruise ship, concordia. i think a couple from virginia will be on. it will be interesting to hear what they have to say about the ship's captain, who is being widely vilified in the news for "abandoning ship".....

What am I doing? I have been playing with my brand spanking new Shark Series S3101 Steam Cleaner. I am a happy camper. I didn't need the vacuum since my kitchen is so small. And with just three pushes of my push broom, it gets up all the crumbs. And I have one of those dustpans with a long handle so I don't have to bend over. Without that, The pile of dirt would just have to keep building up until I could get someone to pick it up for me.

Good for you, Addie! Let me know how it works for you! I'm thinking seriously of buying one also!

The first thing I tested it on was an ugly black rubber scuff mark. Had to go over it a couple of times, but it worked just fine. This will become my go-to for a quick pick-up or for spilt food.

I know what Son #3 went through everytime he was applying. And to apply for Yale Medical? OMG! They wanted everything including the blood of my first born along with the wing of a bat, the eye of a newt, his CORY, my CORY and three bows to the east. So I will have you in my thoughts every day until we hear you were accepted to the school of your choice. Good Luck!

My youngest son had a close call early (5:45 am) yesterday. On his way to work, right ahead of him there was a three car accident. Thank goodness he was not following to close. He said that it looked like it was in slow motion. He got out of his car and made sure that everyone was alright. They were all shook up but no injury's. All of their air bags went off. He then called 911 and thank goodness their were there in a matter of minutes. He then got a call from his wife and she was sitting in traffic for over an hour and a half because of another crash on the bypass. I am so grateful that they were alright, but my heart goes out to the other victims. I sure wish that everyone would slow down and not follow so close.
