Five years out

August 4, 2016 Thursday

Wow… can’t believe it’s been five years since I finished treatment for breast cancer.  After 9 months of “going to the doctor too much” through diagnosis, two surgeries, chemo and radiation – I was finally done.  And now I’ve survived for five years, when the risk factors go way down!  Whoohoo!

HELP! Winter Vacation Suggestions

August 1, 2016 Monday

Good morning Dear Readers!

Hope your summer is going well. Or whatever season it is where you are. 🙂

I need your help. Please give me your expert vacation advice!

Let’s say a nice man asked me to meet him somewhere warm in January or February with great restaurants, fun attractions to see and a waterfront hotel with a balcony or a rental house with a water view. I’m thinking the Southern U.S. – Sanibel? Miami? The Florida Keys? New Orleans? Phoenix? I haven’t been on many winter vacations and may be missing a wonderful answer.

Where would you recommend?  Hotels?  Restaurants? Sites to see?  Chocolate shops??

Please comment below or email me (click on the same sassy girl link next to my cleavage on the upper right, and it takes you to my profile with my email link on the left!)

Thanks for any clues!

Keeping an eye on the 100th Indy 500… they’re showing it live on ESPN! Rare to be able to see a Iive event streaming for free. I’m not that into cars racing but the coverage is interesting with the sounds, the camera-on-every-car perspective, the statistics they tap into…

Spring flowers!

I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for the tiny white Lily of the Valley.  They grew all around the front porch of our house in the old home town.  So pretty!  and they smelled wonderful on a spring morning!

The first time I went back after we moved, someone had dug them all up!  So sad… they cut down all our huge trees too.  Will never understand that.  *sigh

Royals in India

April 17, 2016 Sunday

From Sally Bedell Smith’s Facebook page:
A much anticipated moment today in India, when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge posed together at the Taj Mahal–symbolizing the strength of their marriage only days before their fifth wedding anniversary. The famous landmark was built in 1631 by the Murghal emperor for his wife to signify his eternal love.

William’s father, Prince Charles, visited the Taj in November 1980, less than three months before he proposed to Lady Diana Spencer. He vowed to return one day with his wife. The tragic sequel occurred 12 years later during the couple’s visit to India. Diana went to the Taj on her own, and in a famous photo of her sitting forlornly on a marble bench for five minutes, she let the world know that her marriage to the Prince of Wales was on the rocks.

William and Kate’s photo today went a long way toward proving that history isn’t repeating itself.p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 14.0px ‘.SF NS Text’; color: #1d2129; -webkit-text-stroke: #1d2129} span.s1 {font-kerning: none}
