Listening to "what the hell did Jesse Jackson Say" on The radio. You call in and have to guess what he says and win prizes.

I am pretty proud of her. First sold painting, she has given everything else away. She has a big heart.

I know you like sweats, if you have time stop into a South Philly bakery for something: Isgros or Termini's bakeries are two of my favorites (Isgros is #1). Not far from airport either.

That the guys are all griping about the weather on the Hate thread and the snow is almost gone and it's not even June yet! I love our northern summers.

My daughter, flowered hat, yellow belt around her neck and the beautiful smile. (Under the "E") Now she's headed to Spain to teach English as an internship. After her and my wife get done vacationing in Iceland. Yeah it's why I work.
