Yesterday morning at work we had The Today Show on in the background for awhile and I heard the stupidest thing ever - PETA had sent a letter to Ben & Jerry's requesting that they use human breast milk rather than cow's milk in the making of their ice cream. HUH?!? Of course being the sick individuals we are at work we naturally started joking around about having stalls of women hooked up to milking machines! Thankfully the wiser people at Ben & Jerry's thought it best to leave human mother's milk for human babies and continue on with business as normal in Vermont. Where do people come up with these ideas??
One of the guys I work with who recently became a paramedic has also recently started a blog of his own. Rob has been a regular commenter on my blog for some time now "and decided that since I used to blog, there is no reason that I shouldn't blog again!" Of course, I only found this out as he is listed as one of my blog followers and I went to go check it out. I'd appreciate it if you'd click on over to Rob's Random Ramblings and welcome Rob to the Blogosphere! He leaves great comments so I'm sure he's going to write a great blog once he gets past that first post he has up!
It's going to rain here in Connecticut for the next two days and even if I didn't hear it on the weather forecast, I'd feel it in my back and left leg which has been aching like nobody's business since yesterday. I tell ya, being a walking barometer is really not all that fun!
My friend Mags got a phone call from her mother yesterday that her father was having some chest pain and difficulty breathing and then she got another call this morning that he is scheduled for bypass surgery tomorrow. She's on her way here to Connecticut to be with him. I know you guys are good at this so please send thoughts, prayers, and wishes her way for her Dad's successful surgery and recovery.
Claire is flying back to England today from Boston and I am really going to hate her being so many, many miles away. She may come across as a cheeky little Brit on her blog (and trust me - she is!) but she is also one of the funniest, warmest, nicest people I've met even if she hates having her picture taken even more than I do! She has told me she's planning her next visit again already and I sure hope so as I would love to see her back here! I'd also love to go visit her in England as she told me so much about it but unless I manage to win that elusive Powerball jackpot, it may be a very long time before I can afford to go.
Finally, if you're curious about all of the pictures in this post, they were taken from the upper deck of the ferry that was returning us from our visit to Block Island back to Point Judith on the Tuesday of our vacation. You guys know me and pictures of the sky and clouds and if you throw in the ocean - I just can't resist! I thought this was a good way to share some of them. More on Block Island in another post soon!
Everyone have a great Thursday no matter where you are or what you're doing!
