Oh, they will still go to waist...

Good one PF. Right now I am trying to get my hearing back. The smoke alarm went off in the building. Dang, that thing is loud. False alarm again. Any time dust gets into the smoke detectors, it sets off the alarms. It costs the Building Management Company $300 every time this happens. You would think they would put cleaning them on the list of monthly chores.

Maintenance just knocked on my door. It seems that there is a major leak under my apartment and they wanted to check to see if I had any overflow here. Under my apartment is the electrical room. The leak must have hit some wires and that is why the alarm went off. Not a false alarm this time.

How dumb these folks are. They send three MEN to take a look at my apartment. The reason is so that one employee can't harm me if there is someone else with him. So what is to stop the other two? Fortunately I know these men and there were other tenants out in the hall and saw them come into my apartment.

Give me strength Lord, give me strength. It is very tiring dealing with idiots every day.

Well, we made the lemon cookies and they turned out delicious. They were a hit with all except my grandson, Steven. He loves to cook but won't eat half of what he makes. He didn't even want a cookie when they were done.

Thanks, BT. I'm excited that he loves to cook with me! If I could just get him to like the basics.

He makes cookies and cakes but won't eat them. I have bagel and lox for breakfast and he eats that. Go figure!

that's a good sign. my son started off with a very savory palate, also liking to cook. at 7, my boy has made many cold desserts, but also garlic bread and cheese crisps of his own recipes. lol.

he was the only 4 year old that i know that liked fried salmon skin (very fishy), or bitter greens, or even hot peppers. your grandson is lucky to have his grandpa lovingly expose him to what we all here love, and all of the familial things attached to it.

Watching a beautiful day unfold and remembering just why I love DC so much.

Yesterday, I laughed so much! It seemed everyone had something funny and witty to say.

Especially you, AndyM. Obviously your vacation was really good. You had me laughing hard all day. Thanks!

I guess the 'cooking gene' skips a generation. My daughters were not interested at all growing up. Now the younger one is beginning to get into it.
