I enjoy doing my blog, but sometimes it is a drag because I do not have pics to post or things to say. This started as a family and friends blog, but it is nice that others are enjoying my ramblings. lol I have around 50 readers everyday. I have had readers from 7 different counties.
I am a , as my daughter who is a teacher says, recovering teacher. lol I am a retired teacher and when possible I like to pass on information that I think is interesting or just plain fun. With that said I like to post the truth. So I got a message from my daughter that said the photo of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was not taken during Sandy, but during Irene.
What ever the circumstances or time it shows the dedication and honor of our brave young men and women in the service and the sacrifices they make each and every day. And let us not forget the families. I know my son's family has been without their husband and father for almost 2 years now and they really miss him. I talk with him through Skype and I know he would love to be home too.
It has been very windy, 25 to 30 mile an hour gusts, here today because of Sandy up North. That is one big storm! We did not break any records for cold here last night, but we were very close. I know that Daytona Beach broke theirs by one degree. We do not have any clouds today and the temperature got up to 68. We are hoping this wind will die down tomorrow so we can go out without having to worry about where I might blow to.
I am using my Crook Pot more these days. I am trying a beef stew today. I do not know if it tastes good, but the smell is driving me crazy. You let it slowly cook for hours and that whole time it is smelling sensational.
We did see our friends from last year the Sand Hill Cranes. They are a very graceful beautiful bird. We have not seen any babies, but we are a bit early for that I think.
They have very beautiful heads with the little patch of red.
How many horses do you see. Very interesting pic.
Will I Live to see 80 something?
Here's something to think about.
I recently picked a new primary care doctor. After two visits and exhaustive Lab tests, he said I was doing 'fairly well' for my age. (I just turned sixty-two).
A little concerned about that comment, I couldn't resist asking him, 'Do you think I'll live to be 80?'
He asked, 'Do you smoke tobacco, or drink beer, wine or hard liquor?
'Oh no,' I replied. 'I'm not doing drugs, either!'
Then he asked, 'Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued Ribs?
'I said, 'Not much... my former doctor said that all red meat is very unhealthy!'
'Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf, boating, sailing, hiking, or bicycling?'
'No, I don't,' I said.
He asked, 'Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have a lot of sex?'
'No,' I said...
He looked at me and said,.. 'Then, why do you even give a darn?
