    7 and a half hours, that's a long time. What do you do if you have to potty?

    Rose, thank you so much for your valuable suggestions!

    Whenever there's a power outage, I'm on the phone with the electric company trying to find out what's going on, and while I'm at it I let them know that I'm talking about a building with over 60 residents who are all elderly/disabled, many with special medical needs, and that we are susceptible to problems when it's too cold or too hot, in addition to being likely to fall because there's no light to see by.

    I don't know if it makes any difference. There are monthly meetings here, conducted by the managers, who are hired by a company. The actual owner(s) of the building are a deep dark secret, known only to the company.

    I'm guessing that this latest power outage will be a topic discussed at the next meeting in about a week. We've had these discussions before and are told that in case of a power outage, we're not to call the management (who are on duty here only on weekdays) because they can't do anything we can't do. We've been advised to go elsewhere or hunker down with a stockpile of flashlights and food that doesn't need cooking.

    But the discussion needs to be reopened, definitely.

    Thanks for starting September off right for us, Peg! A lot of apples should mean great pies for many for a long time.

    As the song says,

    Can she bake an apple pie, Billy boy, Billy boy?
    Can she bake an apple pie, charming Billy?
    Yes, she can bake an apple pie,
    Quick as a cat can wink its eye--
    She's a young thing and cannot leave her mother.


    (Well, it's cherry pie in the original but apple will do.)

    Howie, keep on eating pasta. Or maybe you should keep on buying scratch tickets?

    In the article on the lottery winner,

    he's going to use his winnings to help a family member pay medical bills...
    There are lots of really nice people out there, and he must be one of them. I'm so glad he won big.

    Good morning. ;-) I am home in my sunny skylit living room, on the couch having coffee while the cats take sunny cat baths.

    It was so good to sleep in my own bed. It felt soft and gentle to my hips. Slept great. Peter has gone off to work for a little desk clearing before the long weekend.

    I am hoping for a calm day with good weather for all of you.

    Agate, I remember that song. My dad's name was Bill and we'd laugh at the thought of him making a cherry pie! In Mama's kitchen!!

    Ann, my dad's name was Bill, and my sister is named Ann. Are we related?

    We have regular monthly fire drills here, and have to sign a sheet showing that we've turned up at the fire drill location.

    I understand that one reason for this is to make sure we can all get downstairs in case of fire. If people aren't reporting for the fire drills, they are supposedly told they'll need to move to the first floor or move out. However, I believe many on the upper floors really couldn't get down the stairs--and perhaps get away with riding the elevator down to the fire drills or just not turning up at them.
