Fog ~ Chicago PD ~ NY ~ Cathy ~ WD-40 ~ Cocktail Shaker ~ Football Sunday!

Good 32º foggy morning. My weather station on my desk says snow. The weather prediction is for cloudy. Pressure is dropping.
Gadzzzzzzzzz.......yesterday was foggy and SOOOOO cold.

I am so tired of this. Whine whine whine..... It stayed 38º until after 1:30 when the sun finally came out and then it was 50º. YEAH~ I was checking the blog from a year ago, and nothing has changed. Same old same old ... in the 20ºs in the morning. Frozen everything. Guess I forget how cold it gets. Brain farts. Old age. Ah well.....

Put wood on the porch and made a fire in the late afternoon in the wood stove. Was really warm and snuggy for a change. Hadn't had any wood on the porch for a week! Then watched the two hour premier show of Chicago PD. Interesting. Parts were intense.

Main character sort of pissed me off a bit, but will watch it again to see if he turns around.

PICTURE of the day.... from my trip to Nova Scotia, Boston, Bar Harbor, on a cruise out of NY... and a NY tour by my friend Joan Petit-Clair ... the Brooklyn Bridge..
I want to go back to NY and on my bucket list is dinner at Frank Sinatra's favorite place, Patsy's. It is Italian and on W 56th Street. (Joan, ready to go???) Joan and I did eat at Delmonico's.

OMGOOD!!!! What fun that was!!!!

Today is the birthday of my friend, Cathy. I worked with Cathy at ELA. I called her Princess Leia, as she was so small in her radio car..... It looked like she was steering the Enterprise! BUT, irregardless of her size, you didn't screw with her... or you'd be cuffed and in her backseat and on your way to jail~!!! (taken at ELA in July 1998) HAPPY BIRTHDAY CATHY!!!!!

The WD-40 tip of the week... getting ready to travel? Get out the suitcases and.....
  • Lubricate pullout handles on suitcases
  • Stop squeaks on suitcase wheels
  • Remove scuff marks on plastic suitcases
  • Lubricate suitcase locks and zippers

  • Here's another good idea...
    Crack eggs into a cocktail shaker, put on the strainer lid, then gently pour into bowl. Only the whites will seep through.
    It also works as a garlic peeler. Place unpeeled cloves into shaker, replace top, and do what Tom Cruise did best in "Cocktail"... shake shake shake! Or............. put powdered sugar in shaker, replace strainer top, and shake sugar onto baked goods or french toast when recipe calls for a "dusting".

    All I know. Nuff said. Happy Sunday. Ciao.
