There is nothing in the world that I hate more than maths.

I understand just how you feel Ovi! Math was terrible for me when I was in school. I think most people who feel they aren't good at math just haven't been taught in a way that matches their learning style. I finally taught myself algebra the summer before I started college. The program I was going to take had so many credits that they wanted us to test out of the math requirement. I failed the first time but I bought the course book and finally figured out how I learn math best. I didn't become a math person but I passed the test and was later able to teach my son math when we homeschooled. He was like me but now has a job where he uses math everyday. So hang in there!

I honestly do not get why there is such a fascination with where Jimmy Hoffa is buried. Am I missing something?

I hope your fantasy team does better than my reality team did last week. Good grief!

Well my college team (Florida State) lost, my pro team (Eagles) lost, and my fantasy team is getting smoked!  Good grief is right!   :'(

I'm really impressed the last couple of games with the NE Patriots "rookie" team. It looks like they want to win again!

This week has been cold and dreary followed by sunny and cold so... I started up the woodstove. I think I actually love that woodstove!

Arrrgh; Dcazz, stop! Fall foliage, woodstoves.....I am getting increasingly disenchanted with my current locale. I LOVE woodstoves.

Just joking, of course. I hope you and your wife are having a very pleasant autumn!  :)

Even more perplexing -- and annoying -- is this ongoing fascination with the "Did Jack have to die?" in Cameron's Titanic. He wasn't even a real person, for goodness' sake. If people are so concerned, maybe they should consider researching some of the fascinating stories behind the people who were actually ON the ship that night.

The whole thing just makes me crabby.  >:(

UGH don't even mention those!  ;)  The oilfields are the bane of everyone in this state; they are strongly hated by pretty much everyone I know. The overflow has ruined the western part of the state and is spilling east, quickly.

Ah, well, I'll soothe myself of mental images of bright fall foliage and woodstoves -- and maybe I'll be able to get back East soon!

I'm sorry to hear that! The media makes it sound so great! I'll post some pics soon. If it makes you feel any better the colors have been pretty dull this year. The wind and rain knocked a lot of them down before they completly turned. I haven't even bothered with a photo yet! Maybe the end will be better than the begining!

We're still early in the fall foliage change here in New Jersey.  Most trees are still green!  With a forecast Indian Summer coming up, I think we're going to have an extended fall color event.

So far yes! Last thursday we went on a Vermont winery and Cheese tour for a day. We had a great time with lots of laughs. Got to pet some very freindly goats at a place called Fat Toad Farm. They're goat cheese and goat cheese CARAMEL are featured at Williams and Sonoma and lots of other places. Did wine tasting at a couple of wineries and after a couple hours of that everything was funny!
I came downstairs on Saturday and noticed a horrible smell in the kitchen. I figured a mouse died under the fridge or something. Soo... I took apart the front of the fridge (as it's a built in and you can't move it) went under it with flashlights, wet vacs trying to suck his little carcass out through the front to no avail! : (  Later I was making lunch and opened a tupperware and WHOA!!! it was the goat cheese!! Almost knocked me over. I told her she needed to bring that stuff out to the back field and bury it deep! I have no such trouble with the wine.

Just curious, I read the post of oil fields, fall foilage....ect. I makes me wonder where everyone here is at/from. I am in Southwestern Ohio. We have had some beautiful foilage this year. But a bit warmer than it should be.
