Hi Everyone!

We had prolonged power failure starting the night of the hurricane, which lasted for 5 days. The storm itself was terrifying. I thought the windows would crash in, but the house held up well. Trees down all over the area, including on rooftops... The one road we use all the time finally opened today!

I tried to get a hotel, but they were totally booked. Many thanks to our daughter for inviting us to stay there. It was so cold at that time.

Like I said above, it was hellish. Well, I didn't really sleep much on Tuesday night, just tossed and turned and had nightmares. Wednesday was actually the body blow.

I'll never believe there was not have a coordinated, nationwide computer hack of voting machines and electronic results tabulation. Why? Because they can, and they are determined to hold on to their power to finish destroying our country.

Other than that, how did you enjoy the play, Mrs. Lincoln?

Vision, how was your week?

Thank the Lord you’re okay, Doc! I noticed your absence last week. Those storms can be quite scary, as I know.

I’m glad you’re back with us.

Thank you! All the democrats around here are happy. I took my 3 yr old grandson to a swim class at the community center yesterday and was chatting with a woman there.

She said their house at the Jersey shore was severely damaged. Then she said that her sister is ONE OF THOSE REPUBLICANS AND IS COMPLAINING ABOUT FEMA.

That's horrible, and what I was expecting when the track was over Baltimore. We still have leaves on the trees.

So...how's the kindle?

Tuesday night was rough. I knew something was up by 8pm and by 10pm it was time to leave it be. But I had to be sedated...took a sleeping pill and while that usual works in 30 min, I was still awake 2 hours later imagining America is gone. The Takers now outnumber the Makers. Also, Maryland voted for homosexual marriage, instate tuition for illegal aliens, casinos in Baltimore, and more! That said...

I purchased a second wifi radio and if either of you have a little money and wifi you should think about getting it. It's on my nightstand...I now listen to otr every night and wake up to music from the 40s. Just LOVE this thing. From now on I won't be listening to the BB on the radio in bed, I'll be steaming.

I like the Kindle very much. Can’t really understand what all those people on Amazon were complaining about...

I’ve been downloading previews, which is a great feature. I pre-ordered Michael Connelly’s new book, The Black Box, which will be out Nov. 26. The only annoying thing is that I was high up for it on the library list, and now I’ll have to pay $14.99.

The good thing, though, is that I can read it on the Kindle when we take a vacation Dec 3, and I wouldn’t have had it from the library at that point.

I also pre-ordered the new Nero Wolfe book, which will be out Nov. 13.

At the moment I’m previewing ‘The Generals: American Military Command from World War 2 to Today.’

I’m not reading anything to do with current politics.

Yes, our country has fully turned the bend down to Hell. It’s a sickening, heartbreaking thing to watch, like a nightmare that doesn’t end.

That’s a snazzy radio, though! :-)

It’s truly an amazing thing how I continually encounter ordinary people who turn out to like obama. we’re avoiding news for now, if possible. How bizarre is the Petraeus story...

*That really is a nice radio!

Today we went to Applebees for lunch. Every year on Veteran’s Day they give a free meal to vets. It was actually overwhelming. They made such a big fuss over my husband, thanking him for his service and giving him a thank you card and flag pin. Several employees shook his hand and thanked him. They also had him sign the wall. The place was full of vets, young and old.

Yes, Bama lost, and the Saints won, beating the undefeated Dirty Birds of Atlanta.

Nothing’s on the grill. I’m going to cook some bell peppers, onion and garlic, add some eggs and make some hashbrowns and bacon. We have biscuits or tortillas, too.

What did you cook?

Sounds like breakfast for dinner.

Had another meat bender this weekend. Starting off with burgers Friday night, then Sat had 3 racks of ribs and pulled pork on the smoker, with chicken wings on the grill. I have a problem.

We went to see the Clint Eastwood baseball movie last night. I don’t think the critics liked it, but the audience applauded at the end...

Indeed I did enjoy watching it. Since Clint's appearance at the RNC here in Tampa I've purchased several sets of DVDs of his work, which I'm leisurely going through. Finished the spaghetti westerns directed by Sergio Leone and scored by Ennio Moricone (who later teamed on one of my all time top ten favs, "Once Upon a Time in the West")

Greetings everyone.

Really bad week, eh? I thought Mitt had it. Obama playing to empty seats while Romney was drawing packed houses. I see reports of voter fraud and I'm inclined to believe it put Obama over the top.

I'm prepared to take down my shingle the moment the government starts to tell me how I am to comply with Obamacare. I love what I do, the people I work with, and the people who honor me with their trust of my care, skill, and judgement. I had planned to practice as long as I was physically able, but I will not be further controlled by the state.

I am just sick for my country.

We’re sick, too, Steel. It’s an indescribably painful thing to watch your country needlessly fall, although we know God is not mocked; whatever a man (or a nation) sows, that shall he reap.

We’re reaping a harvest of national sin, and it’s liable to be the worst in the history of the world before it’s over.

I hear rumblings of physicians "going Galt". We'll see.

I do not recognize Obama as legit. I consider him a fraud, and I will not comply with his mandates.

I’m afraid you’re right, WXRGina. The government has our economy on the brink and they are relentlessly driving it to catastrophe. My opinion is that they are criminal, dishonest, and pure evil.
