So, let's put September to bed and start planning for pleasant and lovely October.
How about you?
A girl and her LAPBAND on a road trip...... who I am, where I am going and all the adventures along the way.....
As I grow in age, I value women over 50 most of all.
Here are just a few reasons why:
A woman over 50 will never wake you in the middle of the night and ask, 'What are you thinking?' She doesn't care
what you think. Women over 50 won't walk around complaining of cramps, wah! If a
woman over 50 doesn't want to watch the game, she doesn't sit around whining about
it. She does something she wants to do, and it's usually more interesting.
Women over 50 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the
opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant or anywhere. Of course, if you
deserve it, they won't hesitate to shoot you if they think they can get a way with
it. Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what
it's like to be unappreciated. Women get psychic as they age. You never have to
confess your sins to a woman over 50. Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 50 is far sexier than
her younger counterpart. Older women are forthright and honest. They'll tell you
right off if you are a jerk, if you are acting like one. You don't ever have to
wonder where you stand with her. Yes, we praise women over 50 for a multitude of
reasons. Unfortunately, it's not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart,
well-coifed, hot woman over 50, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants
making a fool of himself with some 22-year old waitress.
Ladies, I apologize. For all those men who say, "Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for
Here's an update for you.
Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage.
Why? Because women realize it's not worth buying an entire pig just
to get a little sausage!

Your guest blogger for today....
Hi All, I answered Judi’s call to be a guest blogger. She gave me no other guidance except to think about the journey of life. One of my favorite topics is music and so today, I am thinking about music and the role that it plays on our journey.
For those of us who love music, there are the obvious ways that it connects us to particular moments in our lives. Judi’s guy Bruce always reminds me of growing up in eastern PA, just across the Delaware River from New Jersey, our local rock station played a lot of Bruce.
As much as I love that songs take us back, I also love how music can also be whatever we want in the moment. Now don’t get me wrong, I have wonderful friends and a loving partner. In addition though, I turn to music for a particular sort of companionship. When I want comfort and good company, I may listen to Stevie Nicks.
I also love Natalie Merchant for the same kind of calming energy. Then there is music that gives me a different kind of boost (a little help with confidence, etc.), R.E.M.’s “Walk Unafraid” for example:
And of course there is the music that revs me up, including old bands like Led Zeppelin, Rush, and Queen. In this way, I think music is a most reliable friend, or some might say, a healthy drug. I can turn it on and be with the feelings I want -- comfort, happiness, or even anger and frustration. Further, music can give me a boost, a little help with confidence or energy.
Thus far, I’ve shown my age with my favorites. But I love new music as well. In fact, as much as I love new music, I love the hunt for new music. It’s probably the same thrill that Judi gets from the quest for just the right new pair of red shoes. I read music magazines, surf online, etc... all looking for the next artist or band who will bring some magic into my life. So is there anything deeper to this quest for new music or is it just consumerism? I believe it reflects the ongoing search for connection and a curiosity about what is new. These are both life-sustaining forces.
The list of bands and artists that I love is very long. However I will share with you, a few newer artists that I’m into: my current fave is Antje Duvekot a wonderful songwriter with a knock-out voice. Also check out Fleet Foxes and the soundtrack from “Away We Go.”
But more important than my recommendations, is the question, what role does music play in your life? Oh, and if you have any new singers or bands who are keeping you good company, let me know.

Combine first 6 ingredients in a medium bowl, tossing gently. Let stand 15 minutes. Spread 1 1/2 teaspoons goat cheese on each bread slice. Using a slotted spoon, arrange 1 tablespoon tomato mixture over cheese. Serve immediately.
Start by crushing some garlic and heating it in some olive oil in a medium nonstick saute pan on the stove. While that is heating up, very thinly slice the zucchini. When the oil and garlic are heated, tear some basil into the pan and add all the sliced zucchini. Cook until the zucchini is tender, but not cooked through, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
Blend eggs in a blender or wisk vigorously with a little bit of milk and some salt and pepper.
Pour the egg mixture into saute pan and let it sit for 1 minute. When there isn't much loose egg left in the pan, grate some Parmesan on top and place pan in the broiler for 1 minute.
Take pan out of broiler, let it cool and set in pan for 5 minutes. When cool invert a plate on top of pan and turn over. Slice and serve. This is great served room temperature!
