You can have our snow, too. We've had a warm and mild winter. Then, just when I'm ready to drive and go out on my own, winter arrived! I knew this would happen. We have about three or four inches on the ground and it's cold, about 17 degrees. So I'm keeping my chauffeur until the weather clears. I'm not afraid of driving, but of the icy parking lots. This way, I get dropped at the door. Actually, I may never give this up!!

hey Janet - I hate being driven by anyone else - just don't feel in control - and yet when I couldn't drive I was quite chilled about it!

I am not bored...reclining while computing.  You were right, the first (partial) week is a bitch! 

Pamper yourself a little!

yep Hels kitchen is a competition reality show - in fact one of them was in the US - about 10 people go to work in this top chefs kitchen , learn to cook and the person that wins - gets their own restaurant!

On Bravo tv they have a tv show called TOP Chef.     Catch phrase to the weeks looser ..  Please pack up your knifes and leave.   I think the winner gets 100 grand.
