Live Long and Prosper


I love Vulcans.  They say so much, though they say so little. Anywhoo, that is apropos of the recent Star Trek event my husband and I attended at the Ft.

More highs than lows, yay!  Let’s get right to it, My People. 1.  My Sis visited me this month (er, I mean last month, April).  That alone is awesome.  But guess what we did while she was here?  We went to the Bon Jovi concert!  We were in Heaven. At the time I didn’t have [...]
