DH, my beautician, just whacked off 4 inches of my hair. It was down to my backside. Nice way to save $.

When I start thinking about scissors and cutting my hair, I know it's time to make an appointment...I've ruined more hair...

I have a couple feet of it. Seems to work out fine. And my neighbor is a beautician if DH really screws up (which he has not yet). See Pork Loin.

I just got a bunch of boxes from Amazon delivered...splitters, and selector switches and HDMI cable. Today I'll be fiddling around getting my kitchen TV hooked up correctly. Right now it just has coax ran to it, which means I don't get a true HD picture. It's good, but not as good as it could be. This also means that instead of just being able to watch what comes through the satellite receiver, I'll be able to watch DVDs and streaming movies in the kitchen, too. Whoo-Hoo.

Way to go! You can even set up a wireless keyboard and talk to us on DC while you cook!

I just watched a customized online video of Santa Claus talking directly to my grandson, calling him by name. The video had pictures of him and his most coveted gift from his wish list. Santa and his elves talked directly to Steven and checked him out on the naughty or nice machine. He was nice.

My daughter found this site and made up the video for him. She said he was super excited when he saw it.

I just made a tomato sauce to freeze and use throughout the week. Now I'm watching Apollo 13 before making dinner.

That's awesome, Andy! I can just imagine how thrilled he was. We got my neighbour's Granddaughter a talking storybook last year and I was able to record my voice telling the story. It is still one of her favourite things. But a video is truly special.

I just came back from taking my Dad to get his quarterly blood tests and he always takes me for A&W breakfast after because he has to fast, and then eat soon after because of his diabetes. The Dub that is closest to us is full of inconsistencies and today was no exception. The sausage was super spicy (Dad said so were his eggs), the hash browns took forever and when they came they were greasy and over fried. But it was food and we'll survive.

This afternoon I have to take him to Langley (3/4 hour from here and where DH grew up) for a follow-up appointment for a falls prevention clinic. It is kind of ridiculous because he doesn't fall....because he/we take precautions so he doesn't. But it is free and an outing for him!

In between I am doing some more baking - didn't get any done yesterday.
