226/365 Royal Bitch Wine


My sister gave me two bottles of wine for my birthday. This is one of them. I thought this was quite funny, because I was a Royal Bitch today. LOL!!!

We all went out last night to Bricco Restaurant in West Hartford, where I had the most fabulous meal. I had a Pinot Noir called HobNob, which was very good. I also had Calamari, some different cheeses, bread and olives. The main entree was a mushroom spinach lasagna with 4 cheeses, which was delicious. Everyone else had wonderful meals and I would definitely go back to this restaurant. Thanks to Diane, Dominic, Alex, Deb, and Pierre for a wonderful night.

This is my 365 project picture of the day...this, the day of my birth.

Paul Newman Dies























I'm saddened by the death of Paul Newman who died on Friday, apparently. He had a long bout with cancer. Loved this guy. He was into his family and his marriage. He was into helping people, and was a huge philanthropist. We just don't see too many people who are like that. I feel bad for his wife Joanne.

220/365 Margaret Bourke White Book


I don't recall where I bought the book "Portrait Of Myself" by Margaret Bourke White, but I think it was online through a used book seller. I was doing some research on women photographers and Margaret Bourke White was quite famous for photographing the most influential people in our society at that time. This is her story about her photographic career, and her fight with Parkinson's Disease. This book was written in 1968, and is quite fragile.

219/365 Which Gym?


I have been currently joined with Gold's Gym due to my small hometown gym closing. All of the members were ferreted over to Gold's Franchise. I like it there, but it's a longer drive. Planet Fitness is opening right down the street from my old gym. I joined it. It's cheaper, but may not have the same niceties. So, now I have to drop Gold's Gym. I think I'll wait, as I do enjoy their Cinema aerobic room.

I want to put both stickers on my car. Hehehehe!

218/365 Funny



Having fun at a friend's house. 

The goofy face picture is my 365 picture of the day. The smiling picture is in my 365 overflow set. I like both of them. Easier to choose the smiling face. The goofy face isn't so attractive, but I'd rather have that for my choice, as it's funnier.

Skunk Spray Odor Removal Recipe


Supposedly, this remedy works in removing the smell of skunk from your pet, (and better than tomato juice).

1 QT Hydrogen Peroxide
2 TBS Baking Soda
1 TBS Dawn Dishwashing Liquid

210/365 Three at the Big E


Diane, Barbara and I went to the Big E fairgrounds in West Springfield, Massachusetts. We had a blast eating all kinds of crap foods like kettle corn, (Barbara's favorite), maple sugar cotton candy, potatoes with toppings and pumpkin spice coffee. We just couldn't eat anymore than that! 

This is my 365 project picture of the day. I have more photos which will be added.

208/365 House


I grew up in this house. The top right window is the one to my room which I shared with my sister. The whole look of this house has changed. There used to be a pool in the backyard. Looking at this house, it isn't at all familiar, and I feel no sense of history anymore. I feel lost; like I never lived here. I guess it doesn't matter.

205/365 How to Photograph Dogs


This is a book I bought quite a long time ago. I just changed the cover a bit by adding my dog Tillie to it. The book is quite wonderful. I have a better book than this one, which I may use as a picture of the day in the future.

This is my 365 project picture of the day.

Taken with a Canon SD800, and added pictures of Tillie to the cover for the shot.

203/365 Women's Body Book


The book, "Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom", by Christiane Northrup, M.D., is the best book on a woman's body and all its quirks and functions. A recommended book. I have referred to it so many times. 

This is my 365 project picture of the day.
