News Alert

The spousal unit is not the father of Anna Nicole Smith's baby. The oldest son says he might be a possibility but we have our doubts. Can that story get any sadder or weirder?

Here's an updated picture of By the Bay's 13th Colony Bay. What goes with 13th Colony Bay like wine and cheese? Could it be The Complete First Season of Beverly Hills 90210? Why yes it can. Sometimes surprises are the best and 90210 on Valentine's Day is about as good as it gets.

What goes with a Mason Dixon Ballband Dishcloth like a Mardi Gras Parade and Moonpies? Why Season 1 of Dawson's Creek is the perfect Ballband companion. More proof that I do indeed have the mentality of a 15 yr old girl. The oldest son has asked, "What's next, Seventh Heaven?" NO. Not Seventh Heaven, maybe The Simpsons or Married With Children. Is that adult enough for him?
Sometimes when there's a lot of things running around one's brain, some escapism is the best way to let it go, chill out, and relax.
Dinner's in the crockpot, pot roast. I found a recipe on Allrecipes.com. I was concerned, I mean it's one thing to load up a chicken pot pie with all the "cream ofs" soups but a roast? Didn't sound too appealing but I read all the recipe reviews so I cut up some potatoes and threw them in the pot along with some baby carrots, then put my roast in and topped it with fresh sliced mushrooms then mixed up a can of cream of mushroom soup, golden mushroom soup, beef broth and a packet of Lipton Onion soup mix and dumped that over everything in the crockpot and hoped for the best. It smells pretty scrumptious. Since it's winter I'm not worrying too much about the "cream of" overload, when the weather gets down in the 20s like it's supposed to tonight some comfort food is a good thing and technically I'm the only one around here that needs to lose any weight, everyone else can easily handle the extra calories offered up by the "cream ofs". Brett Butler used to say that "cream of mushroom soup is the glue that holds the Southern diet together" boy is that true around my house these days.

13th Colony Bay looks great. You have more done than I do. I've been stitching it over 1. I've completed alot of other projects but this will be my favorite when I complete it.

13th Colony is gorgeous! Great work!

As for Anna Nicole..weird weird weird. I think the most weird thing I've heard is that she had her nanny underfeed Dannilynn so she would grow up "slim and sexy!" She's like 6 months old...shut up!

Everything's looking good!
Try this recipe with a good ol' cheap chuck roast or seven bone...the roast Of course, in a rectangular baking dish, cream of mushroom spread on top...straight out of the can, then sprinkle dries onoin soup mix on top of that. Pour about 1/2 cup of red wine in the pan around the roast, cove rwith time foil and pop in the oven at 350, for as long as you would cook whatever size roast you have there. Enjoy with rice, mmm mmm good!
