I'm glad you have your water back, and that it only took 1 day. The street below me had no water for almost a week. There are 12 houses on the street, and there was a water truck that came every day...

DH and I joke about his self-serving gifts all the time. The very first Christmas gift he ever gave me was a rechargeable drill. Seriously. :rolleyes: Turns out he had been wanting one for a while,...

Cinque Terre

I second cruxian's suggestion. Cinque Terre is absolutely beautiful and I'm sure you've seen photos of these colorful beach towns hugging the hills. The problem is that this area has been discovered...

Mine used to be Brooke Shields bushy and I plucked them just to keep them in shape, but in my 50s they thinned out. I occasionally take a tweezer to them for an unruly stray hair.

I just finished Longbourn by Jo Baker for my bookclub. It is Jane Austin's Pride and Prejudice seen from the servants' point of view. I'd give it a 2 1/2 out of 5.
Next up is Canada by Richard Ford.
