Recent news reports have featured an article about very serious mechanical failures of a ski lift at Sugarloaf Mountain in Maine. Allegedly the gear box malfunctioned that impacted the electrical motor causing the lift to suddenly stop and start going backwards.

Each time my sons come to visit, sometime before they depart, they ask me this question......they are 30 and 28.....I love it! They're not too old to have 'ole Mom rub their backs. It may seem "gross" to some, but it's special to me and as my one son says, "see Mom, we're spending some quality time together".

Albeit self-proclaimed. There is however, a friend of mine in Modesto (the Mayor of Modesto) where my husband and I lived for over twenty years that every time he sees me, calls me by that name. Those of you who know me are surprised that I ride. By the way, I'm not the passenger, I have my own.....not a Harley, but one that costs a whole lot less but is just as functional-a Yamaha V Star, 650-she's a beaut! Black and red. Studded saddle bags, a large studded "tractor" seat, and loud pipes! (that's for safety you know, so folks can hear you coming).

Well, it felt like it anyway. Have you ever driven out on Auberry Road up to Millerton Store? In a car, I never noticed the gradual and persistent uphill grade for approximatley 12 miles until my husband encouraged me to ride my new carbon-fiber bicycle (that is so light I can pick it up with one finger) with him yesterday. He has been encouraging me to stay fit, ride with him more, and has been gently challenging me to take some new paths.

.....irritability, temperament changes, biting questions, subjective assumptions, mood swings, bloating....well, it's not what you're thinking. The time of the month I'm referring to is the dreaded "month end close"!

Something so horrific, so widespread, it is rampant and unbridled and if it goes unchecked can be an outright plague-the common "cold"....oooooh, how I abhor it. I've sat on the couch the last three days watching re-runs of the Andy Griffith show, with piles of kleenex, Zycam, throat lozenges and fluids trying to barrigade myself from further pestilence, all the while trying to comfort my whining husband who claimed to have it worse than me (well, he actually did!).
