Barack needs to be held accountable for the Drone War.
Let's do a Twinkee update, Dawn McCarty (Bloomberg News) reports:
Hostess Brands Inc., the bankrupt maker of Twinkies snack cakes which last month won a judge’s approval to cease operations, said its wind-down is proceeding as planned.
Lawyers for the baker today also told U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Robert Drain in White Plains, New York, that its cake brands will have separate so-called stalking horses making initial offers in an asset auction. Heather Lennox, a lawyer for Irving, Texas-based Hostess, said potential buyers are interested in brands and equipment.
Okay, for weeks now, my husband's been working on his 'office.' Half the garage was closed in to create a place for his work bench and other things some time ago.
And that's fine.
And it's even fine that for about four weeks now he's been working on it non-stop. I did think, "I thought we were going to do carpet in the living room as our next project."
And I did wonder when he brought in some really nice carpet. And I almost went to look a few times because you just step through the kitchen. But he hates it when people watch him work (he will tell you, "If you're going to be here, find something to do.") and I figured he didn't want me looking at his work in progress.
So tonight he says he wants to show me something.
He's given up his office. He's turned it into a playroom for our granddaughter that lives with us. He's been working on that for weeks for her. That's why he had the nice carpet. He's got the baseboards painted and pretty wall paper up elsewhere. And he's built several different dollhouses for her. She's going to love it when she sees it tomorrow.
I love it right now.
I am from a big family and, Barbie wise, the good thing there was I had a ton of sisters (and cousins) to play Barbies with. And we could swap clothes for our Barbies. The bad was that there were so many of us forget about a big Barbie house or things like that.
So I'm kind of glad that I have two granddaughters and they're both only children. They miss out on the sisterhood bonds, yes, but they do get a lot more attention and a lot more presents.
Okay, I've got to wind down because I do have to go to Midnight Mass tonight. I hope everyone has a wonderful day tomorrow -- whether it's a day you celebrate or just Tuesday for you.
