Rant: I am at home with a nasty cold. On the bright side, I'm not at the office.

Rave: We just bought a car!! Now we can take weekend trips again w/o the hassle of renting. It's going to be super expensive...but I think we were in need of a change. I can't remember the last time I was upstate, hiking in the woods, or canoeing on the Delaware...

Congrats on the upcoming wedding Beachgirl!
Don't forget to eat breakfast on the great day. Who knows when you'll have time for another meal on that day.

Kal...why don't you go to other topics and start a thread about the pitfalls of gambling...so we will know how margot55 gotcha.
And, I don't want to show my ignorance, so I will ask....who is Norah Jones father?
