We have all completely recovered from H1N1 / Swine Flu – well, those of us who caught it, anyway. Richard, Ali and Frank never caught it but the rest of us did.

It’s a relief to not need to be paranoid about it anymore. “Go aheads, kids, touch all the doorknobs you want!” Ha ha ha.

We’re now gearing up for the holiday next week! We have guests in town this week (our great friends, Raul Silva and best selling horror and fantasy author Doug Clegg, and Grampa and Step-Gramma will be arriving next Tuesday for the Thanksgiving holidays. Next week’s issue will be going out a day early because we have family plans all day next Wednesday.

This week’s Maxism:

“What are Russell Sprouts?”

(No, we don’t eat brussells sprouts. My mom made us eat them all the time when I was a kid and I am still trying to get over that! She also made us eat liver and onions every Thursday. Guess what else we never serve here? Heh…)

Hugs to all!
