I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

So last night after leaving The Great Race Place @ SanterAnita I ventured down the road to Pasadena to one of my olde favourites for dinner, Green Street. Something I had forgot about when ordering iced tea as my beverage choice, the waiter asked.....DECAF or Regular?

What a pleasant surprise! Why doesn't every restaurant in America offer DECAF ICED TEA :D

A bride-to-be was brought to tears when her fiancé arranged for her beloved horse to visit her in the hospital.

Christine Carbonneau was feeling depressed after recovering from a monthlong induced coma after being struck down with pneumonia following an operation to remove an abdominal blockage.

I don't know how my tiny ancient apartment and my tiny local electrical company did it, but I am insanely lucky to have power and an intact house right now.

And that is the truth. After being in the hospital for close to 2 months, I went to rehab where I sunk into deep depression. My husband with the help of a friend and the permission of the Rehab Center got Joey & Tuffy in to visit me. It was an amazing transformation. And it was all the better that they were as happy to see me again as I was them. Hospitals. etc. are allowing this more and more. Years ago we had a couple of our dogs go through Service Dog Testing and we took them for visits to a local old age home. Most residents were thrilled to see, pet, and give the dogs treats. One lady brought me to tears when she said, "You and your dogs are my only visitors."

When my 3 yr old was hospitalized over Christmas/New Year's, a therapy dog came and visited. English Setter named Goober. My kid was thrilled - until Goober took over his bed. :lol: :lol:

Almost a book, but worth the read.

Etiquette question....

If you're brave enough to try one of Australia's wines that comes in a beer can, do you pour it into a wine glass first or just drink it right out of the can?

As I understand wine, contact with the air helps the flavor 'bloom,' which is why those aerator/pour spouts for bottles are popular. So IMHO, pour the canned wine into a glass. :D
And then recycle the can. :P
