-My heart & mind are heavy thinking of the east coast. I hope everyone is okay and surviving the storm. I see all the images on the news…. flooding, winds, etc. I cannot imagine how devastating it is… so much concrete, so many people, and huge buildings. I have family in the Rhode Island area & was relieved to hear they are well & safe.

-This morning was a busy one. We took Pistol to the vet to see what’s going on with him. Sunday morning we took him out to the tall grass and let him graze for a while. He ate a lot! That’s really good. He has been eating his food but not any hay. We think the tube worming will get him straightened out. The good doctor didn’t have any concerns other than our horse is a senior. He’s getting older. Another thing we did was have him vaccinated against West Nile. There have been a few horses around this area who have become. Scary stuff.

-I watched Eat, Pray, Love over the past few days. When this flick was in the theaters I knew I wanted to see it but never had the chance. Then all the reviews started hitting the paper and interwebs – most weren’t good. But I have found that those movies with less than favorable reviews generally are much better than you’d think. Reviewers seem to favor those movies packed with death, mutilation, torture and other dark things. I don’t go for those movies so much. I mean, every now & again I’ll see a dark movie that is very good but mostly I prefer to watch docudrama, drama, or more cerebral movies. Anyway, I really enjoyed the movie. It was serious yet funny, heavy & light all at the same time. The author has another book out – Committed. I’ll have to look into that one.

-I have learned something about people & culture. I was thinking about all of this today…. I have lived in many places, many cities – and many different type neighborhoods within those cities. What I have learned is that all people are pretty much the same. No matter what culture, race, ethnicity a person is living in, the deep inside stuff is the same. We all want to be loved. We all want to be a part of something bigger than ourselves. We all want family. We all want to be understood. The ways that different people in various neighborhoods and walks of life go about achieving these things might be a little different…but not really. Everyone wants to earn/get a buck. We all want to be able to feed our families. We all want to have ways to entertain ourselves & each other. It’s been interesting to think about & compare the cultures I’ve been a member of. Everything from white upper middle class, to the predominantly black neighborhoods, the gang run areas, and now the Hispanic culture. It’s pretty much all the same thing.

-There is one thing that the Valley has to offer that is far above & beyond anything anywhere…. Hungry Howie’s Pizza…. it’s a religious experience to eat this stuff. I’m not kidding, not even a little bit. If you have one of these pizza joints in your area, it is well worth the adventure to try them out. The crusts are flavored (I get the onion crust & Coach gets the herb & garlic crust). The price is reasonable. The service is great…. it makes my insides quiver with pizza lust!

Being an adult is like looking both ways before you cross the street and then getting hit by an airplane.

  1. I love good pizza, and I’m so picky about where it’s bought. I don’t eat it that much, but when I do — yummy! I also like to make my own — doesn’t look really pretty, but I know what’s in it. I might try the flavored crust next time!

  2. Well the rest of the East Coast is kinda crazy, but here, Western Mass was spared amazingly! I’m very grateful and didn’t even lose power.

    • Oh Heidi that is wonderful news! I haven’t seen anything about Mass on the news so I was hoping you guys were okay there. The amazing power of these storms is scary and beautiful and awesome and devastating all at the same time.

  3. Omgosh!! I love pizza!!! Big hugs,

    • I pretty much have a love/hate relationship with the pizza… I love to eat it so much! the lust, the desire.

      But I hate pizza for it’s impact on the vessel that is me. My rubenesque stature has a great deal to do with pizza… and pasta and other breadlike products… they are just so good!

  4. Damn woman!!!!!
