Morning Mates, I really had to think about it this morning, what day it is, my brain is still in Cuba!
I got busy with the review last night, and glad to see everyone is enjoying it so far. I will try to get Day 2 up before I go to work today. It will be continued in the same thread to avoid having different parts all over the place.....
Yesterday I handed out prizes to my school kids for an Activitiy Challenge they did for the past month. They were required to record the number of minutes/hours of physical activity they did every day for 3 weeks.
That included things like hockey practice, skating lessons, swimming lessons, ballet, dog walking, snow shoveling, etc. in addition to the gym activities, sledding, and the Pilates and Yoga we do with them after school.
My winner logged a total of 70 hours ! At least some of today's kids are fit and active!
Time for some breakfast. where's that buffet when I need it?.....
Good morning Donna and to others who will join us later.
Great review about Cuba!
With all those beautiful places in the Caribbean and here I am in Ct. waiting for another snowstorm.
have a nice day folks.

Good morning R/D, Manuel, Trip and all who follow.
It dawned a glorious Spring morning here in upper East Tennessee but alas, it's not going to last. Thunderstorms and rain are forecast for later one through the next day or two with today's projected high of 72F dropping with lows in the upper thirties and lower forties and highs forecast in the mid to upper fifties.
Glad I got the lawn mowed yesterday.
Physically I'm fine (except for the D - mned Atrial Fib) which so far today seems to be somewhat in check.
Will admit I had a pretty rough day yesterday with rather severe depression but that is to be expected. I seem to be coming along alright thanks to that drug Celexa. Don't have any idea what set it off but I think I'm better today. I take each day as it comes.
Church on the agenda today. It's the same "Healing Service" that Fran and I attended virtually every week.
Hope you'uns in the northeast don't get that much snow although they're calling for a foot around my old stomping grounds in Albany.
Can't wait to get into your review Donna as soon as I sign off from this post.
It's nice and warm outside although partly cloudy. Went out and played with the puppies after feeding/watering them. They are growing like weeds. We are having a battle on which ones to keep and which ones to give away. I'm about at the point that I want to say to give them all away. The teen wants to keep one, I want to keep another, and OH wants to keep yet another. OH and I are all right with having three but the teen only wants to keep the one she wants. I told her she was being selfish. Plus, there is the possibility that they would all have to go live in the country at some point. The one OH wants to keep will deffo go to the country in a few months. I don't want to get any more attached to the one I love and have to send him out there later. ( I moved when I took my dad, and I'll move again when he passes, and I may not have a place for a large dog when I move.) Then there is the issue of the teen being a junior in high school. She'll be going to college, and I don't want to be stuck with an overgrown house dog (which is what she wants to make her dog.)
It is a gorgeous day here temps already up to 61. The sun is shining in spite of the fact according to the forecast it should be raining. In a bit I am going to put my tennis shoes on and throw open the windows and start some more spring cleaning. I love, love, love spring! Hasta la bye bye winter!
I mentioned a potential opportunity presenting itself yesterday and I think I made it through the first phase, now waiting for the other shoe to drop. I hope to know more later this week, maybe early next week. Hope it works out so I can share it with all of you. I am terrible at keeping secrets.
Not much else happening here. Todd glad to hear the meds are working and the bad days are getting fewer and far between.
Good morning from the "Heavy Slush" Capitol (spelled it right today) of the U.S.
It is a mess. We had about 6" of some sort of frozen liquid. It isn't snow. It isn't ice but it is nasty. It is basically the consistency of a Slurpee or some sort of fu fu drink. It is almost impossible to blow and if the temp drops much lower it will turn into one giant chunk of ice. Yuck!!!! It is still "snowshing" but it is supposed to end by this afternoon.
I don't know what I'll do today so I'll let the day (or Betty) dictate what happens.
One last thing. Yesterday we went to Costco and I of course I saw a chocolate candy in the junk food area. It was dark chocolate covered mango caramel with sea salt. This was one of the best chocolates I've ever had. The entire box is now gone because Betty and I (mostly I) couldn't stop eating them. If the weather wasn't so nasty I would command (good luck with that) Betty to drive me to Costco to buy more. They were only $3.97 a box.
Donna: It's interesting to see you Cuba AI pictures and read about your time there. It looks like you had fun. The place looks very similar to the RIU we stayed at.
I hope everyone has a great day and can do something fun!

Good morning, and yes, it's Wednesday. The sun is shining but more rain is expected.
I had a cortesone shot on Monday for my tendonitis and will start physical therapy on Tuesday. I'm hoping that the pain will finally for away.
Keith had a stroke of luck at the dentist. They didn't charge him for the new crown because they had put in the one that broke. Maybe that will help make up for the last time I went there, and it cost $500.
