Good Morning Gang!

Having 2nd cup of coffee .. today is first day "back to work" so I'll stick with the coffee until tonight then Happy Long Island Ice tea

Saints won last night ... an exciting game! Both teams had numerous offsetting penalties, and both teams had turnovers that led to points scored by opposing team but the Saints pulled it out and won by 3! They are the only team to beat the Falcons in the Georgia dome since the last time they played there in Dec 2009

Have a great day! Off to work I go!

Good Morning Gang,

This is our last day with a full house. We'll be up early tomorrow to take our son to the airport - unless he pulls off some sort of bargain with the airline to provide them an empty seat for someone who got bumped during the big storm.

Hello all, I have been busy with the holiday cooking and all. I made Pasteis de Nata (Custard tarts) for christmas. I found an easy recipe on the web. I just wish I had doubled the recipe because it didn't make 12 full size muffin tarts it made 12 mini muffin sized tarts. Here is the recipe. Portuguese Custard Tarts - Pasteis de Nata Recipe - Allrecipes.com I came back to work today and there was a pile of folders waiting for me. :eek:Plus I have training this week. So I better get moving. Have a great Tequila Tuesday. TM and Henry stay safe in the blizzards you guys are getting.

We are on the road, We staying in a Super 8 motel for the night. Traffic was heavy, so we did not get too far, We only made it to the Virginia border. We have plenty of time and hope to do better tomorrow

Good Morning Everyone!

TM - be safe! It's not how far you travel but that you get to the destination safely!!

Henry - hope it starts clearing out for you soon! If you do venture out, be safe!!

TC - glad to hear that you're back in the work force!! now we'll hear from you more often:-)

10 more days til my cruise! started packing last night, but it's going to be one of those trips where I pack and then unpack right up to the last minute.

Well, it's wine down Wed - can't believe the week is going by so fast!! but that's ok, one more day this week to work and then time off to concentrate on the cruise/packing etc.

Have a great day everyone!

Good Morning Gang,

Just got back from the airport - son is on his way the LGA. He thought he might volunteer for a bump but I guess they didn't need any.

A long day before I get to wine down.

Good evening gang

We still on the road to Florida.

The traffic was much easier today, but we are not pushing it. We are spending the night in a BW in Santee, SC.
Tomorrow we will finish our way to Palm Coast.

Since today is wine down wednesday, I did have a little with dinner. I only drink when the driving is over for the day.

TM

Good morning gang!

Just a quick stop by to say hello!

Going back to work after being off almost 5 months is harder than I thought it would be, I was asleep before 8:30 last night. Thank goodness I only agreed to part time!

Manny have a great vacation, drive carefully, and I am certain you are glad to be going whereit is warm! ;-)

Have a great day everyone!

Good Morning Gang,

TGIT - it is a virtual Friday, I like having B2B 4 day weeks. It started to rain last night and that is washing away most of our snow.

TM - driving only after driving is the best policy. Stay safe and say hello to Garfield for us. Does Palm Coast still have the big Garfield billboards on 95?

They were super easy with that recipe. Because you don't have to make the dough instead you use the puff pastry sheets. The Vanilla bean makes the custard super yummy. My hubby loves these. The only thing left to figure out is what to do with the 6 egg whites, because the recipe only uses the yolks.

Hello everyone,

Just wanted to say an early Happy New Years to all.
Been lots of illness here since Thanksgiving so I havnt been posting.
Pete had it once, Greg 3 times and I am on my 3rd time. Just cant seem to shake it off completely. Hopefully after this time nobody will get it again.

Hope everyone had a great Christmas and will have a good New Years weekend.
No snow here although it snowed yesterday, just tons of rain most days and still cold. 20's at night so the roads are all icy today.

Luckily I dont have to go anywhere.

Got a new flat screen TV 2 days ago, now I am trying to figure out the remote. I has as many buttons as a planes cockpit. Luckily I dont need to use most of them.

Time to go and relax so I can get better, Just wanted to say hello.

HAPPY NEW YEARS EVERYONE !!

Kathy

Good afternoon gang.

We finally arrived in Palm Coast!

We are staying in a nice condo. It is very spacious and it has everything we need. this place is right on the ocean and would make a nice vacation even if we did no thave a cruise to go on.

Good question.

I will have to pace myself because the club where I am going tonight has ope bar all night long.

It sure is a good thing that Mrs. TM does not drink, and I will have a desgnated driver.
