Back Home

We got back home last night around 7PM. It took about 11 hours door to door. We had a few close calls! I had to swerve to avoid a 3 x 2 foot piece of sheet metal that was flying through the air at us and I had to slam on the brakes and swerve from the left lane to the far right when I saw a Semi out of control, dirt flying, bouncing all around and heading straight for the center guard rail at us. I thought is was coming over the rail into on coming traffic. Luckily it stopped and as we passed I caught a glimpse of the driver who looked so relieved. Nicole said her heart stopped both times. It sure got my adrenaline going.
I also saw something I have never seen before, pigs. There were 4 pigs grazing by the side of the freeway. I wondered if they were wild and Nicole thought they must have escaped their pens.
Anyway, we are home safe.

Belly Dancing 1 of 4

I was watching fit TV when I saw a commercial for this show called Shimmy. I watched and was so excited to know how they did it.I think this is an awesome way to get a good workout. I was always amazed at the Belly Dancers down in Greektown, and I use to wish I could do that. I still might try! What about you girls?

YouTube - All You Need Is Love - The Beatles

I was watching CBS Sunday Morning and they did a piece on The Grammy's 50th Anniversary tonight. It really made me feel old when they said that The Beatles album Yellow Submarine won 40 years ago. They were so right in choosing that as the winning album, even after 40 years my kids can even relate to the great songs on this album. Enjoy!

Love you all, and Happy Valentines Day!

P.S. Notice in the video how John Lennon is chewing gum and singing! And guys guess what my favorite movie this song is in.

Yes, the girl is fine

Just a quick post to let you know that I got a letter regarding my mammogram results and yes, everything is fine. Just have to go back in 6 months to make sure there are no changes.

The Girls get a Mammogram recall

I went yesterday for a recall on a Mammogram I had a couple of weeks ago. The technician showed me two little spots on the xray that they wanted to get a better picture of. One was the size of kosher salt and the other the size of table salt. So she took more pics and this time she really squeezed the right girl. She developed them and then told me to wait while she took them to the Dr. When she came back all she said was," I could go, the Dr. had all the info she needed". Well I got dressed wondering what all this meant. Before I left I asked the women what was next? She told me that I would get a letter in about 2 weeks or a call and a letter. So now I wait!! I did do some research on calcifcations and feel a little better about it now. I've attached the link if you are curious as to what they are.

P.S. This is not my boob.

Spicy Shrimp with Andouille Sausage on Grits

We had the most wonderful dinner last night at the De Rose's house. Chef Rick outdid himself with the wonderful dish. I would highly reccomend this recipe even if your not from the South. The grits were so rich and creamy and the shrimp and sausage had just the right amount of heat.
Bon appetit.
