One unforgettable memory was spending the day in the "Roosevelt Baths" in Saratoga Springs.

My older brother and his wife live in a small town just north of Tampa. Does Ocala still have a lot of horse Farms?
Ah, that would be the drive up to Prospect Mountain. Great views.

Yep, Ocala is still the horse capital of Florida.

If I follow up with your idea I could probably manage do switch places 3 times...one side, the other and middle!

Yes, tomorrow. I've packed away my boots and winter clothing and I knew I was doing it way too soon. I packed the ice scrapers in with the emergency equipment bag that I keep at hand, so I can dig those out. The shovel handle broke in early March and the snowblower is chugging out plumes of grey smoke (all from this one winter). I think I'm going to crash in on Umbria in coastal NC, as this may never end.

Snow shovel was packed away last week. If there are reports of this storm coming anywhere near this area, I'm packing up, dog and all and going to the Best Western that takes pets and has a jacuzzi and a warm pool. Senior discount, you know.

Just had an idea for a cartoon of a bunch of frozen seniors meeting up at a Best Western...need a punchline.

Something on this idea? "Thawed Out." That's my contribution. I'm obviously not a writer.

Looks like a great movie. From the description I see a lot of the film shooting was done in Jaipur, India ... one of my favorite places. It's in the state of Rajastan, arguably the colorful and interesting part of India. Jaipur is called "the pink city" because most of the houses are painted pink! Not too far away is Jodhpur, "the blue city" because most of the houses are painted some shade of sky blue! Then there is Udaipur - "the white city" (I had dinner in a maharaja's palace situated on an island in the middle of a large lake) and there's another city called "the gold city" where all the buildings are painted shade of amber and mustard (didn't get to visit that one). Rajastan is the only place I know of where the cities have color themes!!!

I would like to see it. I haven't been to a movie in years.

India has always sounded like a dream place to visit but I know I'll never get there. I used to read about it. A friend did get to go there and she had her daughter with her. Her daughter was afraid of one thing: seeing a snake charmer. But they reassured her so she went. What was the first thing she saw? You guessed it!

Clark, you have been everywhere. I'm jealous.

in_ne and negirl, maybe if you brought a covered dish you could ride out the storm in Philly with Officer Clark.......

Love the idea of going to a motel, be sure they have a standby generator, wind gusts on the Cape to exceed 65MPH
