Well, I've decided to set a goal...

I want to put 5 new items on my site, each week, starting Monday. Of course, it will depend on my schedule, but that is my goal.

So wish me luck...and stay tuned.

For those who haven't heard, Pres. Carter has left his Church after 60 years because of what he called, their "repugnant" treatment of women. I, for one, am on his side, but it made me think about other things.

If there was ONE word you could change in the bible, what would it be, and why?

My word would be cursed...I would change it to blessed. How would the world look at women if women were blessed into giving childbirth, instead of cursed into giving it, (you remember...punishment for that apple thing). Makes one think, uh?

For those of you planning a visit Los Angeles, or if live here, let me tell you about Dan Tanas Restaurant. It is one of the Old Time Restaurants, where the waiters get to know you, and the food is Italian Great!!!! There are two small rooms, one with a bar, one with just tables. With red and white checkered tablecloths, wine bottles hanging from the ceiling, and the wonderful smells from the kitchen, you know as soon as you walk in, your mouth is going to be very happy!!!

We love to go to Dan Tanas to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries or for just about anything. Last night we were celebrating living another day...just happy to be alive, together, and still having fun.

If you get a chance...stop in, have a meal...enjoy.

I know it's crazy, but I just had to put this on my blog...

About 3 weeks ago, Jed ordered some shirts from Turnbull and Asser in Beverly Hills.

They called today to say they were in and I asked them to please messenger them over to us. Usually, if we get a delivery of any kind the concierge signs for the item and calls to let us know we have something. For some reason, when the concierge called he said I should come down. So, down to the lobby I went.

The messenger was there with the package, and I signed for it. Then he asked me if I was an actress...MAN OH MAN!!! I'm 59 years old...and someone thought I was a MOVIE STAR!!! All I can hope for is that he didn't think I was Cloris Leachman...hee hee!!! Just thought I would share.

Love and Kisses


Jed loves Dark Chocolate Covered Marshmellows from Little Johns at the Farmers Market. Tomorrow, I am going to fight the parking, bear the heat, and go to buy him some. I can see the look of suprise delight on his face, in my mind, as I type.

I love to surprise him with things that make him happy...WHAT A JOY IT IS TO BE IN HIS LIFE...

38 years this November, and we are still on our first date.

I woke up early, 5:30am this morning...I love to see the dawn. The beginning of a new day, the start of something new. But today is going to be different.

Los Angeles is bracing for the chaos the MJ Memorial is going to create. Lots of crying, lots of mess to clean up, and lots of noise.

I, for one, was not a true MJ fan. I'm sorry he left us so early in life and I wonder what music we missed out on. I wonder what his 50's would have brought us in the music world. As far as his other business, well, I'm just not in a position to know the truth. I prefer to think that if the LAPD couldn't prove he was a criminal, then I have to believe it wasn't true. They sure tried hard enough!!!!

He was weird, that is for sure. But weird is a name folks have called lots of interesting, creative people. It happens to be a name I have always loved to be called. To me, it means extraordinary, off the wall and thinking outside the box. All of which can easily be said of MJ.

The thing that struck me this morning is the morning sky. It was dark and overcast. Not a usual sight for Los Angeles. It almost looks like it might rain. Wouldn't that be something? A downpour in LA on MJ's last hurrah!!! Weird, uh?

Jed got an Amazon Kindle for Fathers Day and I just love it. I've read 3 books since then...(check out the "Books I've Recently Read")

I hate to admit it, but Oprah was right...this is going to revolutionize the book industry.

Every year the Wilshire Country Club puts on the most beautiful fireworks, and they are ACROSS THE STREET. It is like having your own private fireworks. We don't even have to go out, just open the curtains and the whole sky lights up.

I will try to get some good photos and post them tomorrow.

I hope everyone has a great day. It really is a special day.

God bless America!!!

I can't believe it has really been so long since I've written. I really have nothing to say, but just wanted to say, "I'm alive and well."

I am doing some Spring (or should I say Summer) cleaning and will be putting more things on my two websites. Plus, as some of you know, I have an Etsy site, so I am going to be adding things to that as well.

Tomorrow I am taking photos of some antique curtains. I washed and ironed what a job!!!! I will put some photos on here so you can see them before I put them on my site...just for fun.

Hope you all have a wonderful and SAFE 4th...

Love and Kisses
