I know there are members who had abusive parents. While I know that not all are Jewish AND that the abuse the writer suffered pales in comparison to some, it is an interesting article.
Happy Friday, STalkers! The weekend begins in a few short hours. Woo hoo!!!
My neck of the woods is in for cool, rainy weather. But (IMO) there's nothing like rain to make the Fall colors look positively vibrant! I'm so happy that the heat of Summer is behind us. Let's have a litte Fall Fun!
What do you like about Summer changing to Fall?
What is your favorite hot/cold Fall drink?
Is there anything special you cook or bake?
Outdoor activities you and your other half do?
What is something you've always wanted to do?
This has been a loooooong week. I've spent most of the day running here, there, and everywhere and am FINALLY sitting down. Unfortunately, I'm on a mucho boring conference call. HAVE to be on it, but cannot contribute to it. So.....
Throwback Thursday! Do you have any favorite Fall memories?
When I was a kid, there was one big thing we did in Fall: Fall Cleanup. That involved housecleaning AND cleaning up the yard.
Happy Friday, STalkers! We made it!!! Okay, almost.
'Forn' is 'food' and 'p0rn' combined.
Did you notice that it's Fall? Leaves are going from green to yellow, orange, red, umber, butterscotch, marmalade, currant, gingerbread, gold, bronze, scarlet, and cinnamon.... Have I painted a picture?
Happy Thursday, STalkers! We're one day closer to the weekend. I was hoping to sleep in on Saturday, but the neighbors are having a yard sale. Sigh. Maybe Sunday...
I didn't want to hijack another thread, but the comments made me curious...
What do you do with a gift you never use or do not want/like?
Do you use/wear it once or twice?
Do you keep it handy for the time the gifter comes over, then blow off the dust and place it in a spot of prominence or wear it?
Do you donate or regift it?
Do you stick it in a closet or cupboard or the back of a shelf and let it gather dust until, years later, you find it while cleaning/remodeling? (And do you then throw it away?)
Do you throw it away?
Soooooooo glad it's Friday! It's been yet another week of Mondays. Blech.
Eff off to:
Friday at LAST! This has been a week of every day mimicking an endless, sucky Monday. Plaaaaaaaaaaah!!!
Today's work schedule translates into Day From Hell, so let's get right to it...

In rememberance of the tragedy of 9/11, please take a moment to reflect.
There was shock and horror and heartwrenching pain.
There was no race, no religion, no politics.
A nation came together. We were all brothers and sisters rushing to the aid of our extended family - America and its people. Supplying shelter, food, water, money, time. Holding a stranger's hand or hugging them to give the only thing we could - compassion and comfort.
I KNOW there are a gazillion recipes on the internet, but am wondering if anyone has a tried-and-true recipe for eggless cookies. A family member has egg allergies (banana, too).
