rave: the street fair festival is on and I'm still eating on the kettle corn I bought yesterday.
rave: driving to Minneapolis/St. Paul later today for fun.
rave: husband is playing golf this morning and that puts him in a very good mood.
rave: my local gas station is 5 cents/gallon less than any other place in town (and I've got a coupon for an additional 3 cents off).

I guess there's nothing to rant about today!

Rant: I've been back from Scotland for just over a week, and it already feels like it was ages ago. I look through the pictures every evening to try to keep it from slipping away.

Rave: My next trip is just five days away, to meet the new nephew (although I don't know whether Lake Jackson, TX, qualifies as a rant or rave).

Rave: the weather's been beautiful here in Chicago the last few days, and it is supposed to be great this weekend. We're contemplating an outing to Ravinia to hear the Chicago Symphony.

Rant: watching Mark Prior walk off the mound with an elbow injury last night -- okay, not travel related, but enough to send a chill through every Cubs fan's heart. It's gotta be the goat...

Happy Friday, everyone.

Rave: We're heading to the beach tomorrow, along with both children and families (all three grandchildren!). We do this every year, and we all look forward to it.

Rave: Going to New Orleans in three weeks with four other couples.

Hope we get some rain on the yard and garden while we're gone..

Hi everyone!

Rave - My sister and her husband are coming to visit me for the weekend!

Rant - My car stalled in the parking garage at work, and when I restarted it, it jumped, and scrapped a concrete wall. Ugh!

Have a great weekend!

Rave: Birdie - a regular poster on the forum - who was so very kind to me this week. I had posted a question regarding construction at a resort and she drove there to check it out for me. I really appreciated this. Thank you again Birdie.

Happy Friday Everyone!

Scarlett, too cool about your boy.

Iregeo, that's great for your son.

Mimi, I hope your fingers feel better soon.

Thanks to all the rest of you who wished me and my hubby a happy anniversary last Friday. Your wishes were much appreciated.

Rant: We didn't get to go to Saba on Monday, as planned, since we couldn't find a single flight with five available seats for all of us.

Rave: We had a fabulous weeklong visit from my MIL and her sister. We all had so much fun together that it should have been against the law to laugh so much every single day.

Rave: My husband's daughter went on her first scuba dive and loved it!

Rave: Tonight is the official start of Carinval on our island. Let the party begin!

Rave: Lots of needed rain here yesterday and now the sun shines again for a lovely weekend.

Have a great one, everybody!

Rave: Saw a pair of bald eagles on my morning walk.

Rant: A particular poster who litters the Europe board 24/7 with snotty put downs and pretentious yammering. Ugh. It's so tiresome.
