I'm certainly still old...older, I fact, than when I adopted the name but I don't think "cold" applies anymore.
It didn't again today but even though the temperature is the same as yesterday there is a lovely breeze so I am able to do without the AC.
Depending on where you are now....old_warm, or old_insufferably hot

I thought oddstray nailed it.
But now have to reconsider. Went to a meeting last night and it had dropped down to 80 with a nice breeze. My bare
arms were chilly!! I do believe I have become 'Florida-ized"
old_still_cold??????

CCc girl, no noticeable earthquakes here recently (there are always mini-earthquakes here). But for some reason, the fault that runs through Sandy Eggo is in the news as being due or over-due for a significant one.

old_maybenolonger_cold, I hear ya! I knew I had lost my Chicago hardiness the year I moved from inland L.A. to San Diego. It was a 'bummer summer' (cloud cover the entire summer). I darn near froze!

But today is nice walking weather, and the earth is tranquil, and best of all is that I'll be officially retired November 7th.

We must celebrate here on the 7th! How exciting!

Glad you are enjoying your day . . . it is very pleasant here in NC, as well.

Have a great weekend (and no earthquakes - mini or otherwise!)

Today is the 25th anniversary of the Loma Prieta earthquake that struck northern CA during game three of the world series.

Of course I had experienced many smaller ones in the 16 years that I'd been living in the Bay Area but that was certainly a shake-up call for me about the importance of disaster preparedness. I know that the experts said that there was a good chance that one of the faults right in the Bay Area (the epicenter of the LP quake was 60 miles away) would have a major quake in the next 30 years so I guess they have 5 years left, at most. The Hayward fault in the East Bay is theoretically overdue since it averages 140 years and the last one was in1868, 146 years ago.

Is the baseball season getting longer - they haven't played game one yet. IIRC when I was a kid back in the 50s the series happened around my birthday which is Sept 20.

O_C, it only takes me three days to acclimate when I go back to FL. Grew up there.

I remember that quake! We were watching the game.

We've had three quakes up here in the last twenty years.

oddstray, congratulations! We will celebrate!

If anyone needs Augmentin for their stash I have a source, no script required.

So, what is Augmentin? I've never heard of it.
