Much Colder Weather, and Some Grammar

Our desert weather has turned decidedly wintery, seasonal; and I just won't have it. Today our high was only 65, and I know that makes me sound like a weenie, but for us that's really cool.

Extended Forecast 7-day Forecast
Friday 54°F | 34°F
Saturday 54°F | 32°F
Sunday 58°F | 36°F
Monday 62°F | 39°F
Tuesday 65°F | 41°F
Wednesday 67°F | 43°F

I don't really care how cold it gets as long as it doesn't snow at the Grapevine on I-5 Sunday on our way up to San Francisco.

May I point out a mistake that I'm seeing almost every day on many, many blogs? I do this as an ex-court reporter, and it's a major pet peeve. Okay. Here goes. Don't hate me, please.

The misuse of the words "to" and "too" is rampant, so I want to put out a few definitions from to perhaps clarify.

"To" is a preposition, and definitions and examples of its use are at this site.

"Too" is an adverb, and definitions and examples of its use are at this site.

Okay, I'll shut up about it now and will try never to mention it again.

Any suggestions for cheap eats while in San Francisco? Only get up there once a year and haven't really kept up with the restaurant scene.

An Interesting Take on the Food Network

Take a look at what Rosie at Bitchin' in the Kitchen with Rosie has to say about the Food Network. Very interesting, and I think many of us are coming around to the very same conclusions.

Fantastic Podcast Find!

The Daily Purge is a new podcast I came across this morning, and it's just too good not to pass along to everyone else. No iPod necessary; it can be streamed live on your computer. Check it out. Some great storytelling and music. And I love the hilarious lyrics to the intro music. I think most of the music is original by J. Michael and Rob.

Also, things are changing for the better when I see an IKEA commercial like this one. Check it out.

We're off to San Francisco next week for four nights. Hope the weather doesn't suck, as it can often be in January.
