Cheryl, I sure hope your frayed nerves have a chance for complete recovery while you're relaxing in the Cabin. And a very happy birthday to Tyler, too.

Short answer: Family

Long answer (you didn't expect me to stop at the short one, did you? ): I never wanted to leave OH. Moving to MA was a corporate move. Himself's job got relocated, so we figured MA was better than unemployment. Jury's still out on that one. Anyway, the first couple of years were fun. We acted like tourists, seeing what we wanted to see, vacationing to places further away (Stowe, VT, Acadia National Park, Conway, NH, The Cape), and learning new things. That was fine...for the first couple of years. Fast forward to 2006, and Himself's sis and BIL move up here. Fun FUN for a couple more years, but then *blah*. The older I get, the less I want to be away from my kids. And their friends. And MY friends - because I never really made the same kind of close friendships like I had back home. Some of it is culture, some is resistance on my part. But my plan was always to get back. Get back. Get back to where I once belonged. I've finally resigned myself to the fact that my highly intellectual husband isn't much for manual labor. Before we married, my Mom warned me of the same. She said "he'll be a good husband and take care of you, and support you and the family you might have comfortably, but he's not much of a worker. A hard day of labor and a cold glass of water will kill him." Bob Vila he's not.

Besides, drivers are nicer in greater Cleveland. Houses and insurance and, depending where you live, taxes are cheaper in greater Cleveland. And there's no such place as the West Side Market around here. I wanna go home. And that ain't Pittsburgh to me.

Bob Vila? He never did any work. He just talked about people doing work.

The current TOH host, Kevin O'Conner, actually does work.

I recently opened a South Indian restaurant in Edinburgh, United Kingdom. Feel the culture and taste of Indian food. My restaurant name is Nilgiri Spices hope everything is going good.

I suppose it's OK, Ross, as long as that air fryer doesn't go *BAM!* when it's cooking.


I'm listening to the craziest baseball game I've heard in a...well, probably forever. Three calls overturned in the first three innings. Batter hit-by-pitch pushing in a run, all sorts of really crazy stuff I can't even recall! All I know is, unless the Indians completely choke away the top half of the ninth inning, there will be a lot of happy Tribe fans watching the post-game fireworks show tonight. They pretty much got a double-header of fireworks!

What am I doing?

Well … This wild fire started on July 14th by lightening and it's
18% contained, but still... it's about 10 miles or less from us,
as the crow flies.



Just a bit nervous, but we haven't gotten any Code Red Alerts YET!!!

Kgirl - I don't have a lot of experience with fires but my first thought would be to choose several routes in all directions. I hear they have a habit of circling around.

My next thought would be what essentials to throw in the car. and maybe my last thought would be - do I have gas in the car?

Be safe!

and why is it called a Cellar Fire

oops OK just went to Arizona website and guess that is what the area is called. It shows the burn area - is that headed towards you? or sideways?

I have way too much experience with fire here Kgirl. Nothing scares me more than a wild fire. Keep a good eye on it and hope for the best. I really dread the fire season approaching here in the west.

I am in NJ for the weekend, helping my uncle and aunt celebrate there 50th anniversary. My dad as 14 years older than his brother, so they are a bit behind my parents. Their oldest kid is ten years younger than me, and I haven't seen him in at least 15 years. I spent the day at his house with his family and his three sisters and their families. Wow! What a great day. Mike is a diehard Steelers fan, like me. We are going to check off a mutual bucket list item and go to a Steelers home game as soon as we can get tickets (not easy).

It was also great to see my other cousins, although I see them every few years when I go to Denver, or when they come to Dallas. Mike's wife has never been to Texas, so we are working on that, too.

Basically, an awesome weekend and today was incredible.

What a great weekend for you Casey! There's nothing like touching down with extended family celebrating a happy occasion and finding some common ground to continue some future good times together. I'm really happy for you.
