Obamacare ~ Lynda & Rick ~ Chiminey Sweeps ~ RR Gang ~ Halloween Par-tay

Good 39ยบ morning. No rain yet, but was cool for the trick-or-treaters. 80% chance of rain tonight and 100% tomorrow.
HOLY COW it's NOVEMBER! UGH............... so soon.
I'm sad, because now iGoogle is gone. That was my fav... will have to uses other apps now. Darn.
Got this from Dale Yellin.... so true, made me laugh!
Remember when Nancy Pelosi said about Obamacare: "We have to pass it, to find out what's in it"
A physician called into a radio show and said, "That is the definition of a stool sample."
That pretty much sums it up!
Rick and Lynda Castro (ret LASD) are celebrating their 21st anniversary! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY KIDS!!!,LINDA&rICKMA29094568-0019.jpg
Yesterday I had Chim-Chiminey Sweepers here to clean out my stove and chiminey. Constantin Hartmann and Brian Stivers  (love the hat Brian!)
"Soot yourself or call Chim-Chiminey Sweepers"
"A cure for the flue"
These guys were awesome! They inspected and cleaned out the stove and chiminey and Brian fixed the seal on the door. (no extra charge!) Fast. Efficient. If you have a stove/fireplace you need it cleaned. Call them at 541-476-0941 or 541-734-9544
Constantin said I was a "good burner"... I'm taking that to mean I don't burn trash or garbage in the stove...only good hard wood (oak and madrone) that burns
and doesn't leave a lot of soot.
Historically this date....
1800 – US President John Adams becomes the first President of the United States to live in the Executive Mansion (later renamed the White House).

1941 – American photographer Ansel Adams takes a picture of a moonrise over the town of Hernandez, New Mexico that would become one of the most famous images in the history of photography.
I have some of his photos and this one never impressed me. I like many of his other photos... especially the Yosemite series...

1960 – While campaigning for President of the United States, John F. Kennedy announces his idea of the Peace Corps.

1982Honda becomes the first Asian automobile company to produce cars in the United States with the opening of their factory in Marysville, Ohio. The Honda Accord is the first car produced there.

And births this date include...
1941 – Robert Foxworth, American actor
1953Jan Davis, American astronaut

1957Lyle Lovett, American singer
Before I went to Brian and Jen's yesterday I went into town to pick up a package at the post office. Lo and behold, these strange people stopped me...
Debbie the Fairy, PJ the Skunk, Dave ("I'm too old to dress up"), some hay filled guy, and PatC the Cowgirl. They were in town to see what was going on.... most of the businesses gave out candy to the kids from 4pm .....  Kids and costumes were everywhere...
Yesterday I made deviled eggs to take to Brian and Jen's Halloween party. I cooked some Tyson chicken tenders and put them in the little crockpot to stay warm. Took salsa and guacamole for dipping. Everyone brought food. Jen had a mountain of food...rice, beans, roast beef, homemade guacamole... there were meatballs and chicken casserole, and plates of 'eyeballs' and fingers (carrots and almond slices for the nails)
veggies and dips, brownies, etc. LOTS to eat. I am going to make a Smilebox when I have an extra minute. Probably on blog tomorrow... Here's a few pictures...
Brian and Sami testing the fog machine... that's Sami's pumpkin...
Tucker and the pumpkin he carved himself...
Brian was one of the Three Musketeers ... Sami, as Periwinkle (Tinkerbell's sister) draws a moustache on her dad...
GREAT party Jen. You outdo yourself each time! xo
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TGIF! Ciao.
