    Good afternoon! It's a lovely cold day with about 4 inches on the ground and it looks beautiful, so white & clean. It'll be a fairly quiet day, just making two pumpkin pies today. Tomorrow is FeastDay! Have a wonderful holiday everyone and for you souls brave enough to face those 4 a.m. Black Friday sales, I hope you get some real deals!!!

    I woke up this morning and was doing quite well, but when I walked out the door i realized it was raining. I live in Vegas and it only rain rains at a couple of times a year. I've done well to avoid driving in the rain here, but today I had to go to class and take my quiz. So I had my best friend on speakerphone (my family was still sleeping) as moral support and I made my way to school. I have NEVER driven in the rain before until this morning.

    Glad you made it safely Vegas. I've driven in blinding rain, black ice and blizzard conditions...never easy but you get used to it if you have to.

    Guess it doesn't rain much in Hawaii, either ... except for hurricanes.  Glad you made it safely.  I've had to drive in Tropical Storm conditions and it isn't fun, especially with my mature eyes.

    I have driven through everything and then some, but thankfully, this holiday, I only have to drive 6 miles to pick up my parents and bring them to dinner!

    I went and saw Australia today. I'd recommend it for good, fun old-fashioned movie entertainment. If you like big pictures (think Titanic) I would say go for it. I had a great time.

    Happy Thanksgiving day everyone.  I just had a nice big breakfast at the Huddle House while wearing my spiffy new Kindleboards tee shirt.  Now I am at work until 1430.  Then I'll be off to my sister's for the feast.

    It looks like it's going to be a very bright sunshiny day with temps in the high 60's, low 70's.  Perfect fall weather,  I love it.

    It's 46 here on the Treasure Coast of Florida, but going up in the high 70s.  I've been up since 5am, but not because I have to get an early start on cooking.  It just seemed like the thing to do at the time.

    I roasted the sweet potatoes last night.  They just have to be peeled and sliced and layered with apples, spices and apple cider.  Green bean casserole is a snap to throw together, and then the potatoes au gratin which is the time consumer.

    Looking forward to Thanksgiving with friends and family.  Hope everyone has a great day.  May your turkey be moist and your stuffing plentiful.

    For the first time in years, we've got nowhere to be and no one coming in on Thanksgiving.  Everyone, including my sister-in-law, whom we typically spend the day with, is heading out of town.  We may go for a walk.  (That I can be going for walks 3 weeks out from knee surgery is waht I'm thankful for!)

    Good morning,

    It is 24 degrees here and everything is covered in frost. I do see the sun so hopefully it will be a nice day.

    Okay, so now I need some advice. My daughter went to NYC for the holiday to see her friend and apparently, in her first 6 hours there, so got pickpocketed  >:( So...she lost her cash, debit card (call the bank), bus ticket home and passport. She had her passport because she doesn't drive and thus needs the passport for ID.

    So, does anyone know what the protocol is for a stolen passport? Who do I call?

    I'd wish you a quick recovery, but it seems like you're already having one.  Keep it up.

    See my previous posts for info, but now I just want to say she must be sooo upset.  This happened to the daughter of another friend, same way, happened immediately I think in the train station.  I'm sorry to hear it for you and her!!!  Keep us posted in between working on it.

    I don't know about other states, but Florida issues a photo ID card at the DMV offices.  Then she wouldn't have to carry around a passport, although it's always a good idea to have one.

    Thanks, Betsy. Yes, she is upset and I am too. Oh well, we'll figure it out. Thanks for the link to the passport info. We also talked to her friend's parents and they are going to contact the police and file a report with them.

    Yes, they have that here in Maine but we've never really looked into it because she is hoping to get her driver's license one of these days. She has been abroad several times so she has had a passport since she was a baby.

    I am trying to find the silver lining in this stolen passport fiasco and I think I have: she didn't take her Kindle with her on her trip. I suggested it several times (I mean, she was riding for hours on the train) but she didn't want to. So Catalyst is here, safe and sound, wearing her lovely Oberon coat.

    Phew!
