Fourth and final agressive Chemo treatment!

This week we had our fourth and final aggressive chemo treatment. Now we begin 12 weeks of weekly one hour less aggressive treatments followed by surgery, radiation treatments and finally reconstructive surgery. We both agree that 2012 is looking good to us!

Toilet Repair!

After 16 years and a million flushes both our toilets began to leak from the bowl bottom mounting bolts. I visited our local Home Depot for help and was please to find out that instead of buying two new toilets for $300.00 a simple bolt kit, flapper valve, flush kit and a ½ hour each would return them to like new condition! I was very pleased with my new plumbing skills, lol!

New Hampshire!

Last week I visited a CVS in Windham, NH and Klemm's Bakery a local Windham treat! Klemm's Bakery is a full-service bakery specializing in traditional and creative baked goods, cakes, mini-pastry platters and more for families and businesses throughout the Windham, Hudson and surrounding NH and MA areas. The next time you are craving sweets or treats, or need a custom order cake, come visit them before settling for prepackaged products from a grocery store.

Happy Birthday Mom!

My Mom turned 80 on June 18th. As you can see 80 is the new 40! I hope to look this good at 80!

Boeing 787 Dreamliner

While passing through the Houston Airport last week I happened on a display for the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

Responding to the overwhelming preference of airlines around the world, Boeing Commercial Airplanes' new airplane is the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, a super-efficient airplane. The 787-8 Dreamliner will carry 210 - 250 passengers on routes of 7,650 to 8,200 nautical miles (14,200 to 15,200 kilometers), while the 787-9 Dreamliner will carry 250 - 290 passengers on routes of 8,000 to 8,500 nautical miles (14,800 to 15,750 kilometers).
In addition to bringing big-jet ranges to mid-size airplanes, the 787 will provide airlines with unmatched fuel efficiency, resulting in exceptional environmental performance. The airplane will use 20 percent less fuel for comparable missions than today's similarly sized airplane. It will also travel at speeds similar to today's fastest wide bodies, Mach 0.85. Airlines will enjoy more cargo revenue capacity. Passengers will also see improvements with the new airplane, from an interior environment with higher humidity to increased comfort and convenience.

The Austin Polo Club

Located just behind our newest CVS store in Austin, TX is the Austin Polo Club. What a beautiful place! They are a full service equestrian center catering to polo, hunter/jumpers and dressage with a wide variety of options and amenities. Their polo field is also available for use for special events.

The Nutty Brown Cafe and Amphitheatre

A few weeks ago I visited a CVS project in Austin, TX. While there the Manager suggested I try the Nutty Brown Café for lunch.

"The Nutty Brown Cafe and Amphitheatre is the Hill Country headquarters for outstanding Live Music and great times. The enormous, live-oak shaded patio is the premier place in Central Texas to catch all of your favorite artists. Come on out and see for yourself the big fun to be had dining and dancing under the stars. Just look for our big neon cowboy out front welcoming you to your new favorite place for the best in Live Music."
