Thank you for everyone who commented with their kind words. Niel is returning tomorrow evening. YAY! We will probably bbq at his mom's house and hang out with Ripley; since Mike is away for the weekend and his mom is on vacation. We don't want the doggy to be alone.
Before VCR's there was Armenian Radio.
Tori Spelling recently got married. To an Armenian. Here is their registryfound on
My friend Maria told me that Martha Stewart was sentenced today. She will get 5 months of prison time, 5 months of probation and have to pay $30,000. I thought it would be a lot worse. Her lawyers will appeal it. As I mentioned before I thought it was a sham of a case. A witch hunt. No pun intended. Those Enron bastards still have not gotten their day in court, (I hope soon) but Martha was sought after like prey.
It was good seeing Isabel last night and the restaurant was great. After a bit of confusion of locating one another was over we enjoyed ourselves immensely and talked about everything. It is good to be able to see friends. She understands the importance of cultivating a friendship like a flower. You have to water it.
I finished reading Marriage: A Duet in two days. It was a pretty good book. From the review I read I thought it would be smutty, but it is not at all. I never read a romance novel, so I thought I would try. I don't know why I thought it would be a romance novel. It is not at all. It is well written and interesting. The book is actually split into two short stories. The first is about an older couple. It is from the wife's point of view. The husband is on life support and the wife is remembering their marriage. The husband cheated on her and she forgave him and they moved on. The second is about a middle age couple, this time it is the husband's point of view. The wife cheated on the husband and it shows him having a breakdown.
Can anyone please recommend a car? Why do you like it? How is mileage and safety? We are in the market for one, not immediately but are in the research mode.
Can anyone also please recommend a good web host? Although Blogger is pretty good and I will keep it for a journal. I've come to realize more and more I need a web host. I have all the items to put together the food blog I want to create, as I mentioned some weeks back, but with Blogger and most other blogs you need to put a date with each entry. This would not work for a recipe site.
