Oh and here's another contest.  I'm hoping to do a few this month and increase my participation on Active Rain.  I will see if I can come up w/ a creative idea for this one.

Do we have to "Spring forward" or "Fall back" and why??!   Every year, I dread turning the clock forward and losing that hour of sleep.  Like you perhaps, I miss that hour ALL year.  But, then we "fall back" in November these days and that means winter is coming. So it's dread all around.       T...

SNOW STORM ON THE WAY SUNDAY, YES MORE, IN SCARSDALE NY 10583   Raise your hand everyone, if you're "DONE" with winter.  I've posted this before, but did not share my roots, as a native Californian.  This stuff is something that you go to Lake Tahoe or Mammoth and ski in, then you go LIVE in 40 -...

Our office dog and newest hire, Atlas, is on the "executive power couch" at our office.  Atlas says he's glad this week is over...yaaawwwnn!  Guess we need to deal with our own pet dander, odor etc. on the work couch now!  Oh, and Atlas is glad that it's getting warmer, too.

As usual, Debbie gives a very educational look at the either/or options for sanding floors in homes in our Tri-state region near New York City.  As Shakespeare might say, words and names have power, so "light sanding" is a misnomer.  Read and learn, everyone!
