I am sitting here waiting until 9:30 comes. I need to go up to the church to find out something I don't want to know.

Last night Spike was walking Teddy on Saratoga Street. He passes by the house of the woman who started the Church Food Bank many years ago. She also does volunteer work every day of the week. She runs the knitting group at Winthrop two days a week.

As he approached her house, there was a fire engine. Not a good sign. One fire truck indicates 'medical' emergency. Just as he got near the door the fire fighters came out and the ambulance pulled up. Spike heard them say, "She coded." A young couple live on the first floor. Marilyn is in her late 80's. The paramedics didn't even bother to take the gurney out of the ambulance.

So I will go up to the church to find out if it was her. Something I don't want to know.

Could you please tell me what kind of hot wax treatment you use? Thanks

I believe that was Jackie Evancho. She is 13, from Pittsburgh and gained national popularity after coming in second on America's Got Talent. There are videos of her singing on Utube, but I don't know how to post a Utube video here. Isn't she amazing?

I've decided to look at this surgery as the best Christmas present I could give myself, Shrek and family this year. Makes me not dread it so much, even though I want it over with.

Thanks for all the support!

Happy healing vibes sent to you! Once the surgery is over you will feel so much better! I will keep you, Shrek and the rest of your family in my prayers.

I'm sure you will do fine with the surgery!

A month home alone with Shrek, ask for plenty of narcotics and keep a pillow handy!

I'll be thinking about you!

Sitting at the table drinking my first coffee of the day. Today is a day for baking and laundry, have my first load in the wash, and trying to decide which cookies to make first.

The absolute best *biccies for dunking in tea are hard ginger "nuts". They absorb just enough tea but you don't end up with soggy crumbs in the bottom of the cup' Other biscuits are good but you have to judge the length of immersion to a fine point.

Perhaps some student somewhere could write his or her PhD thesis on dunking biscuits/cookies.
