Hogwarts Castle

Just returned from a vacation at Universal Studios Orlando. Although they keep saying we are supposed to have severe weather today yet nothing on radar. Five days ago we had some weather.

The morning of our flight we were woke up with heavy thunder and lightning. This was not predicted. We made it to the airport but the flight was delayed due to wind shear. It would be an understatement to say that the first twenty minutes of our flight was "exciting". ...

Dogs Take Over Local Pool

By: GardenGrrl, 8:27 PM GMT on September 10, 2014




The last day of the swim season Lewisville opens up the kiddie pool to all the dogs. It is a joyful fest of dogs, water and people that love dogs. Sadly, not all dogs like the pool. When set near the water Miss Roxie acted like we were taking here on the Baton Death March.

In fact, she quickly sought out new owners.

Yesterday was a great day. Not only did I discover an amazing good place to get Korean food, it also rained overnight which is helping during our drought.



You may have guessed already that I love specialty grocery stores and this find is indeed special. Located in North Plano, Texas off of K Avenue is the H Mart. This is a all inclusive Korean mega store.

This complex boasts a full service grocery with Korean bakery and deli, an ex...

AARP Is Good. #8

So it is the end of August and weather here is hot. The big news was 6 count 'em, 6 inches of rain the other day. Truly amazing. My yard is pretty again.

It's my short weekend and I have a lot of errands to run so not much going into the blog this time around. Was thinking about rainbow pictures but can't find mine in the vast storage of Flickr.
