I'm logging on late today, because I've been setting up my new MacBook Pro (with help); trying to figure out how it works.

I think I'm going to get a mouse for it.  I'm having problems with this whatever-you-call-it that you move with your fingers.

 ???

a touchpad?

Good night!

Druxy, congrats on the MacBook - I love, love, love mine.  Yes, a mouse is a good thing - get the Apple mouse - don't get some off-brand.

I stopped the second movie and addressed another thirty boxes or so, then stuck Kritzerland labels on 100 boxes, which will make things go faster tomorrow.

Hi, I haven't been able to catch up on Monday and Tuesday yet, but just wanted to say hi.  It's been just a little busy with the March 15th corporate tax deadline approaching.

House of Flowers is not for me.....but it seems that many HHW'ers would welcome the release.  I have a cassette of one version.

It's windy.  It's late.

I watched INSIDE DAISY CLOVER.  I thought we heard the other end of the conversation when Malora Swan called Wade in NYC....but on my DVD there was no voice on the telephone only Malora's side of the conversation.....or was that another phone call....or did I dream it?

Dear Kerry,  I always stop to notice the scents of nature.  Anything you buy in a flower shop or even most nursery's have no scent at all.  (Well here in the city anyway) Sometimes I wonder if the new generations of humans will get a chance to remember what nature used to be.  Everyone seems to want their world to be allergy free, germ free, gluten free, etc.etc.etc. Just my opinion.

The kindness of strangers:   during high school the school bus dropped us off at my current boyfriends house at 3:30, his father would be waiting for us, take both of us to his place business.   I worked in the showroom on La Cienega, it was wholesale to the  trade only imports from Italy, Spain, England.  I wrote all the orders from the showroom floor.  I got the chance to have conversations on a causal basis with wonderful people like, William Holden, Gene Roddenbury, (after all this time it's hard for me to remember the spelling of names without looking them up) sports figures , singers.   And not one of them ever treated me like I was just 17 and 18 years old, they always treated me with the same respect to anyone of their own generation.  Now I always remember that at work.

I also remember these words from my boyfriend's father " you can be just as sick at work as at home, now get in the car"  I very rarely miss a day of work.

word of the day:  Most of my waking hours are subintelligitur, I guess that's part of being alive and human.

OK... I actually got almost all of the stuff I wanted to get done that I wanted to get done.  HOO and RAY!  And since I don't have to leave for the airport until 12:30, I should be able to get the rest of the stuff I wanted to get done in the morning.  Of course, since it's already 2:00am here on the East Coast, it already is the morning, so...

Goodnight.

Watched CASTLE and enjoyed it very much. Nathan Fillion is just such a charming actor and I loved Susan Sullivan as his mom and also the girl who plays his daughter. I will tune in again.

I concur.  Fillion is very charming...and he makes Thomas Jane in "The Mentalist" seem overwritten and less-than-realistic to me.  I really liked this show.  It was smart, sassy, had a lot of zip, wasted NO time and left me wanting more.  It was one of the fastest "hours" I've spent in a long time.

Love the chemistry of the two stars.
