Morning all. Hope everyone is having the break from the heat today like I am, loving it.

Edit: Poof, I asked at the restaurant yesterday and the woman told me that they give away five random free dinners plus a guest free by email. All others attending will be paying. The one at our location isn't until Sept. 27th and it's $35.00 unless I receive notification of a free dinner. It's also random who will and won't receive an invite at all.

She wasn't sure if all locations are done the same or if the corporation takes into account the income levels, unemployment and how that location is doing that may figure into it.

That's really interesting. I don't think I'd have taken them up on it for $35, mainly because we're just not wine drinkers and I'm sure that was a good part of the price. If I'm going to spend that, I'd rather have a Bloody Mary. P.S. They make terrific Bloody Marys.

Great. The top panel of the garage door just buckled where the opener connects to it!

Fortunately, I can still open and close it manually, but this is a poorly timed extra expense.

joy.

Can it be repaired or does it have to be replaced?

Well, actually I'm not doing anything.
Hubby got it into his head that if he waxed my car again, it would look good.
We didn't wax it last year and it showed this year.
So he and son waxed it a few weeks ago and then he got this idea about doing it again.

So, my lives on the street, 12 year old car, will be shinny!



I was going to dye my hair. Until I found out I have no hair dye.
It didn't seem worth driving to the drug store.

So, I'm just sitting here. Let Rusty out. Let Rusty in. Where you aren't is much better than where you are.

So, got anything exciting to do today?
Want to go for coffee and a bagel with us when hubby is done?

I have two six packs in the fridge.
It seems when son was home, somehow, even though he had his own fridge in the basement, my beer was always missing when I looked.

I had to learn where my fuse box was.
Because I needed to know.
Because he had to change a fuse for something I never use.
I didn't even know that fuses aren't little glass cylinders anymore

Husband's starting the grill. Sirloins, garlic bread & salad.

Read an article last night on how to grill steaks. Not a long article but the comments by men on the article took me a half hour to read. Not too much consensus except for charcoal over gas and chimneys over lighter fluid. Room temperature. Don't salt until you put them on.

There was disagreement over pepper, brushing the steaks with oil, lid up or down, searing, direct or indirect, type of charcoal, briquettes or lump, or wood chips or hardwood.

Where is J3 when you need him? Anyone know of a free easy to use video editor? Ver1 REALLY wants to do a DVD for her homework, but doing it one take does not sound like a great plan to me with a 5 year old.... Especially my 5 year old.

Husband's mad about something. He's been pouting for hours. Asked him what he was mad about. "Nothing." Yeah, right.

I was wondering that, too. Mine did 90% of their themselves. Some checking and correcting, but....

My son had a 3rd grade teacher that made the kids do all the reports in school. That way he knew the kids did them, not the parents.
He also let them go out for 5 to 10 minutes in the morning and afternoon, to the playground.

I bet he had less ADD in his class. The kids got a chance to burn off the energy.

I don't think my parents looked at my homework once. They sure as hell didn't do it.
Plus, back then with 50 kids in the class, if you didn't understand something, you were doomed.

I don't think mine did either. They just looked at the report cards and woe be the kid that didn't have mostly As and Bs. A C here and there was frowned upon, anything under that and the The Strangers (2008)hit the fan big time.
