Cut apple in half inch slices and dip into pancake batter, then deep fry till they have a nice color. Add powdered sugar as desired. Yum. My condolences on the dog.

At home there is interuptions every 5 minutes also. Change diapers, baby cries, hold him! Feed him, toddler comes in and start dissecting the plants and drawing on papers, screaming if you stop him. Wife says she's out of cigarettes. Go & buy! Now! Don't forget the dishes & cook lunch. Also constnt links to Facebook being forwarded thru skype that needs commenting asap. etc

zwarte piet Re:I sleep better in the cold (234 comments)

I usually had 19 or 20 in the daytime, 17 at night when I was single. Now that I'm married it's 24 degrees 24/7. Took a long time to get used to that.
