We rented a TV to watch the elections and the landing of man on the moon, of course I watched bits and pieces of TV here and there at friends houses guess that was why I loved sleepovers at other people's houses so much, no TV made me a good reader which I can do and watch TV at the same time.

Early could be 6:30 PM UPDATE 2013 I watch Netflix now especially love Downtown Abbey and the show McLeaods Daughters

The actor Adam Sandler used to live here where I live now somewhere in this city. I know he went to school nearby where I live. I love his movies always have.
Anything that has to do with paper,cardstock, envelopes or old calendars that which I can make my own envelopes from is something I can use and I enjoy doing projects with them...
