That is gorgeous! Yes, Shrek has good taste.

I'm with the Cat and the Dawg. It's very lovely, Fiona. Shrek, indeed, made a very nice choice!

My other choice was a $600 espresso machine Shrek gave me a stack of catalogs and said, "Whatever you want, Babe!"

The amount of homework a child gets today really concerns me. Do adults bring home as much work as a child is given on a daily basis for homework? Secretaries don't bring their work home, nor do nurses bring home the patient's charts to finish up. Construction workers certainly don't bring their work home. Yet we expect children who have just entered the educational system to not only put in a full day at school, but two or more hours at home. When do they get a chance to continue being just a child.

I commend you Andy for being there for your grandson. A lot of children are left on their own to see that their assignments are completed. What would happen if a computer were not available to him. There are some homes that heat for the winter is more important than a computer. Unfortunately.

Rant over! Glad to see that someone is there for the little one. He has a great Grandpa!

That is gorgeous, your Ogreness. TB ordered my gifts and they come on Friday but I am not supposed to look.

I am more than a little upset with my doctor. I phoned at 10 am this morning and said that I needed more of my version of Tylenol 3 (Emtech has no caffeine which gives me migraines). I have been feeling like I have yet another kidney stone and I said while I didn't think I needed to come in to see her, could the doctor send in a new prescription as the pharmacy doesn't seem to have one on record (I only take it when I really need it which is only when the pain is beyond my management techniques). They never did it so the pharmacy found one that was 4 years old and faxed it to the doctor well before office closing time. I never did get it and am working with my Tylenol arthritis. I can manage the pain, but would really prefer some relief. There is no point in going to the hospital because it feels like a small one and they usually pass on their own.

So, I am sitting in my chair with my kitty on my lap and my mutt at my feet with the heating pad TB got for me. If this doesn't help me through, nothing will!

Oh no. I'm sorry you are hurting. Cats and mutts are very nice when you hurt. What is TB?

With love,

Oh! Thank you. One of my classmates has a stepmother she doesn't like and calls her TB. It means, "The Beast."

I was a bit worried.
