I'm slowly but surely getting things ready so I can get out of town next week. I'm one of those people who thinks she has to leave her house neat so the burglars can find everything. Blame my mother :)
* Today I took a couple hours for pampering and got a manicure, pedicure, and a facial aka 'The Remedy' and it really is good for one's soul. I don't do it often but with everything going up except my SS check, it's how it has to be. Even so, I go to the local beauty college and that saves a lot. 'The Remedy' cost me less than my neighbor Michelle paid for just a pedicure at a salon and she says that her next one will be at the beauty school. Think about it, gals if you need a treat and there's a beauty school nearby.
* Quote of the Week: "It's hard to insult the intelligence of the American people but she's (Sarah Palin) managed to do it!" -- Bill Maher.
* Jon Stewart's return was hysterical on Tuesday. Y'all can see the full episode here. I laughed so hard I cried.
* Lawrence O'Donnell weighed in with some good insights and excellent sense on he calls Sarah Palin's barely legal bus tour and The Young Turks covered it, too. What do y'all think? I think something needs to be done about her antics. Word from Alaska is that all the books coming out about her should destroy her but we'll see.
Okay, I'm all vented out for today. It was a lovely summer day (finally!) in Ohio today. Here's one of my all-time favorite singers (backed up by Louis Armstrong) with one of my all-time favorite songs by my favorite American composer!! Enjoy -- it doesn't get better than this!!!!!!
