  • Hi Everyone!!! Hope your day is going well!!!

    OMG, what was I thinking walking one mile in 85 degree weather?

    Between the fight on Mob Wives and NJ HW, I thought I was going bonkers, felt like I was there, wow, crazy stuff, gets your heart pumping!!!!

    Anna, I thought John would win, but they were both good. OMG, all these shows!!! Having a hard time keeping up.

    I haven't seen Jeanette, Karen, Donna, Festina or Suzie for a while, did I leave anyone out???

  • Hi-MaryAnnL-don't forget-A.I. is on tonight but DWTS is on an hour before (for the repeat than the results show) so A.I.will be the regular time show and tomorrow the finale so I think we can watch both shows tonight...I think Chesea & Mark may win (but I like Hinz) too. as long as Kirstie doesn't win..watched Housewives last night-what a fight! I watch Housewives NY on Thursday. what are we going to do in the summer when the shows are gone? LOL..anyway, everyone have a great day..talk to u soon..bye

  • Terry, You may find Jeanette on Facebook but not me. Never been on it and have no desire to do so. Been busy working on the videos of Carol's Mothers Memorial Service.I have mailed out 9 copies to family members and one of the Eastern Star Service to be given to the Chapter. I am still frustrated that I could not convert them so that they could play on a DVD player. Tried, got flustered and gave up. I am still bugging FLIP Camera for a reason.

    Sorry I can not comment on the TV shows mentioned but I have said once before, If they take Baseball, Football, NCIS & House off the air the only things left for me will be Pawn Stars & American Pickers on History Channel. :scratch:

  • Oh, the memories of Memorial Day in Brooklyn. The humongus parade which started at Buffalo Ave & Eastern Pkwy and went down through the Grand Army Plaza Arch & half the parade went down into the K od C bar for a quick beer before making room for the next group. I have mentioned this on the blog before but I think it is worth repeating. When I was a kid there was a contingent from the Spanish American war, World War I and believe it or not a few from the Civil war rode in a car. It was a great day to be a proud American! There were somber Memorials for those who lost their lives in Wars to keep us free, followed by parties at every American Legion Post, VFW Post & many private parties. We (my group of friends & relatives) would go to the Stenak Post on 13th Street where we were treated to Ice Cream & Soda and games in the back yard. Now that building is a private home!! The parade lasted for hours and hours but it was not tiring. Years later I got to march in one myself with my Uncle's American legion Post. It was a LONG march! Did you know that the day was originally called "Decoration Day". People would go to the cemeteries and decorate graves, especially graves of veterans. Here in Sun City Center we have a very moving ceremony where the names of all Veterans who died since last Memorial day are read and a person rises with a flag as each name is read. They always have a high ranking Military representative, (usually from McDill AFB nearby)give a rousing patriotic speech. The auditorium is packed with over 850 people with many standing in the lobby listening on loud speakers. Patriotism is very much alive in Sun City Center. There are flags all up and down the main drag on each light pole.

    GOD BLESS AMERICA :salut:

  • JUST A QUICK TYPE BY:

  • Good morning all.....

    I hope everyone is enjoying there weekend so far. Today looks beautiful. Heading to my sister's later for my nephew's birthday. Going to bbq tomorrow...I hope the weather is like today.

  • When I read of the casualties in the paper every day

    It reminds me how lucky I was to be in the service during peacetime. I do not regret the time I spent in the Army. I learned a great deal about people, some good, some bad. First there was Ft Dix NJ for what they called reception. Then it was off to Ft Benning GA for Basic Training. From there I went to Ft Knox KY for a School. I ended up staying in Ft Knox in a Tank Training outfit. If you think it does not get cold in Kentucky, spend a winter there inside of an unheated Tank. My final six or seven months I was stationed in the 6th Armored Calvary. We had a scare one day when we were all confined to company headquarters and different names were called out and they were told to report with all there gear in front of the barracks. We found out later that they were shipped to Ft Devens Mass where they were on 24 hour call for shipping out. It all had to do with some trouble in Lebanon. I got a letter from one of the guys who told me what it was like to live out of a duffle bag every night & day and never knowing when they might be put on a plane and sent to a possible battle ground. I am proud to be a veteran and I can not find the words to fully express my gratitude to those who stand in the line of fire to protect our liberty. I wonder sometimes what I would have done had I been called upon to go to a field of battle. It is my fervent hope that I would have done my country proud!!! :salut: :salut:

  • HI GUYS..YES, WARREN THANK YOU FOR THE ROLE YOU PLAYED IN

    THE ARMY & I TRULY BELIEVE YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN ONE HELL OF

    A SON OF A BITCH ON THE BATTLE FIELD.. I SAY

    THIS AS A BIG COMPLIMENT.. :salut:

    I HOPE EVERYONE SO FAR, IS ENJOYING THEIR WEEKEND..

    TALENT'.. :D-Y

    FOR YOU WHO ARE WATCHING THIS SHOW..ENJOY & FOR THOSE

    WHO ARE NOT... ENJOY..LOL

    PLEASANT DREAMS & C U ALL IN THE MORNING.. XX :)

  • Hi all..... :-)

    Boy the summer is creeping up on us and I'm not crazy about this heat!!!

    MaryAnn....my primary Dr. swore it was gallbladder but the sonogram and CT scan were negative. So he sent me to the GI dr and he's running different tests. Hopefully it's nothing major.

    Terry....did your son Michael tell you I saw him today in Rite-Aid? I saw him come and I knew it was him. He got on line behind me and I said are you Michael Sherman? Terry's son....lol He asked who I was and even remembered I lived two doors from the school!! :D-Y

    Patsy I know you're not happy about this heat either....it just makes me cranky and tired!!! I think you, Karen and I would prefer the cooler weather over this....lol

  • Had a fairly calm weekend. Yesterday went to the very moving Memorial Day Service they have here. Speaker was lousy but the rest of it was splendid as usual. Today not so good. Went to the Dentist and had an old Crown removed and a temporary put in. Supposed to get permanent Crown next Monday. It hurt like hell while he did it and it hurts quite a bit this evening. Definetly more then it hurt before I went to him. Had a little brandy with supper and that helped.

    I missed the party we used to have on Memorial Day Sunday in NJ. We used to have between 30 & 40 people in the back yard for an old fashioned barbecue and plenty to drink. Of course I was younger and could eat and drink more then I can now. It was mostly family, friends & neighbors and usually a few people I did not know. The more the merrier.

    The problem I was having with the DVD's still exists. Some will play on one DVD player but not one of the others. They all play on my computer but not some other peoples computers. One plays the picture on a DVD player but no sound!!! Plays just fine directly off the camera on to the 32"HD set. If anyone out there has had this problem with the FLIP Camera let me know how you solved it!!! ](*,)

  • Hi Janet,

    I've been taking a Genealogy class with my wife Debbie at our local Italian American Community Center. We’ve been making some progress but need to verify things. We’ve been checking on the DeBlasio side and the Sisto side (Ellis Island, Family Tree, …).

    When we lived in Brooklyn on 22nd street Grandpa DeBlasio lived in the same apartment building as us along with Grandpa Sisto. Grandpa DeBlasio was upstairs from us and Grandpa Sisto was on the ground floor. Still tracking things down but found out (still need verification) that Grandpa Sisto may have come from Sessa Aurunca Italy in Caserta. Grandpa DeBlasio was honorably discharged from the military in Benevento Italy. Still digging though.

  • GOOD MORNING, FRIENDS :)

    HI EUGENE (GINO) THAT IS MY HUSBAND'S NAME..

    WELCOME GINO, GENEALOGY IS A WONDERFUL THING!!!

    EVERYONE, HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!

  • Well it's been a hell of a day. Kati left today for FL and first her flight was delayed due to maintenance problems...then they made them get off for a 2-3 hr delay...then they cancelled her flight and transferred them from Laguardia to JFK for a 6pm flight. She was able to get on a standby flight at 4:40!!! I'm a freaking wreck...this is her first time flying and she lost a whole day of her vacation. Ugh...... As long as she gets there safe and enjoys her self.

    MaryAnn....I've been having pain in my stomach, upper right very bad...it's gotten better but I'm nauseous alot and feel sick all the time. Can't wait to get the test done. Thanx for asking :-)

    Welcome Gino

  • Thank God she landed safe and sound....now I can rest again!! lol

  • That was good news Debbie. I remember when my Daughter flew to Hawaii with her Girl Friend. She was around 19. I was very happy when she called to tell us they had arrived safely. Now she is the Mother of two children. One (her daughter) finishing up her 2nd year of college and her son will be attending Stevens Inst. in Hoboken in the fall. She knows what it means to worry about your kids!!!

    I finally cut DVD's that run on everything. Computer and three different DVD's. It was very frustrating but when things like that work it is very satisfying. Good night all. :-00

  • GOOD MORNING, FRIENDS :)

  • Okay Patsy, I assume you are finished Vacuuming now so here is a list of things you can fly down here and do. Clean the entry Chandelier Glass Plates (I did the ones over the dining room table yesterday). Sweep down and mop the Lanai floor. Then put all the Lanai furniture back in place. Bathrooms are cleaned, I did the guest room bath this AM & Carol did the Master Bath area so you do not worry about those rooms. The house is half ceramic tile and half carpet so you can vacuum the carpets and wash the ceramic tiles. Beds are made, no problem there. When you finish the above work you can help straighten up the disaster area otherwise known as the garage and then grab a flight home. Help yourself to anything in the refrig or pantry while you are here. Boy what a dreamer I am. I thought you enjoyed housework!!! :bounce:
