My son will be making another corned beef this week. we make just sandwiches with it.

They have a parade in South Boston every year. I never go to see it. It is just an excuse for every one to get drunk and obnoxious. It is a private parade. They have to pay for the cops and any other city expenses. There are more politicians in it than bands. The courts will be busy next Monday with all the idiots that can't control their behavior in public.

Lovely though that would be, there is PLENTY to keep me busy when I decide to move my arse out of my chair. The mess piles up when I work weird hours.

For me it is my stupid hip and spine that keeps me from tearing this place apart and clean it the way I want to. I find now that I am using that as an excuse to even get started doing the everyday things that need to be done.
