    Mmmm chicken soup. One year when older daughter was at college ( she went to a university just 14 miles from home.) She caught a bug and called and begged for chicken soup to be delivered! So on a cold and snowy night we pulled up in front of her dorm and called her. She came tottering out with...

    Happy Monday all! What a set of symptoms, @Mayhip8 ! First let me say I hope you're feeling better. The fact that you were able to do so much is a good sign I think. When I was running a temp everyday a couple of weeks ago I could barely drag myself around. Both my legs did hurt ,muscular pain...

    @Mayhip8 there is a definite difference in chocolates here. Family run chocolate companies have very different chocolate than the ones @Layla mentioned. We have a few in my city that make handmade chocolates. They are pricey but oh so good. As hard as my daughter has tried, Ari has gotten hold...

My best friend bought me an early Christmas gift of a lovely old Coach purse from a...

We'll have a quiet one tomorrow, church first for Thanksgiving service, then my mom and brother over for the traditional meal and some football on TV. All kids working in hospitals so...

    Oh @Mayhip8 ! Those photos look like a magical land --- which I'm sure your beloved Wales is and so glad you got to enjoy without gaining your weight back. The bug I had really knocked me for a loop and I feel better but still weak. Getting there, though. I feel like I'm getting quite an...

    Hey thanks so much! Trying to pace myself as we have birthdays and other things that occur at this time of year besides the usual holiday frivolity.

    You know, @Calgal, on a long flight or an international flight the rules may be stricter. We'll see how our flight to Italy goes in the spring. These were not great big airports. My poor SIL gets profiled a lot because he is Indian but being who he is he just shrugs it off and goes with the...

    Oh btw, my security check at the airport couldnt have been easier. I just stepped into the round machine and put my feet on the yellow footprints and raised my hands over my head. Voila! Did tell them I had hip replacements as I was going thru. This was in Pittburgh Pa and Richmond, VA.
