I have been watching a lot of movies lately. Included:
- Hemingway & Gellhorn
- The Human Stain
- The Impossible
- Alex Cross
- The Big Wedding
Recently, I found a pair of Ray Ban sunglasses at a great price that I added to my Amazon Store.
Sometime ago-- I noticed this site, Terra New York. I love their outer rain wear. Not available at Amazon, so check out the site.
Also checking out what's been going on with my personal list of reads. Problems with computer power cords and my own site issues have kept me busy doing other things.
Hope to get back to a normal schedule in a day or so.

Seasonally late snow [for us], however beautiful.
I was up early, fixing a problem with my Amazon Store. I am not sure how things are changing on that store, but I think it should stop at once.
Then I made breakfast.
I am in such a great mood because I was able to get the driveway cleared. It felt good getting that exercise. We got about 8". I think the task was made easier because the snow did not stick to the roadways until well after the storm hit. Then, it was the flaky stuff.
No, I did not have a heart attack shovelling the snow, nor eating that grease laden breakfast. With all of the snow this season, I have had to beg off from clearing the driveway [other than some minor cleanup] and allow local kids to help because I have felt a little winded. This morning, a breeze.

I am always searching for non-colas I can drink anytime of the day. The problem? I am allergic to citric acid and most colas have citric acid. The other problem of course-- most have caffeine and I do not like drinking beverages with caffeine all day long.
Things I drink without citric acid:
- Cranberry Juice
- Homemade Iced Tea
- Apple Juice
- Grape Juice
- Espresso with cream and sugar
I also drink diet colas but try to limit these to lunch time. Yesterday, I tried my first Starbucks Refresher [Raspberry Pomegranate], and decided I like them a lot. Keep in mind these do contain soda water.
I had the Orange Melon with brunch this morning. Yes, I like them- however they do contain citric acid and of course because they are energy drinks, will probably keep me awake at night.
I am still searching for non-cola drinks, but recommend if you do not have my problems, give the Starbucks Refreshers a try. They are pretty good.

The other day, I noticed a friend that I met in junior high [middle school for you youngsters] changed his Facebook profile photo. The updated photo, showed the friend I knew yet how he appears today-- and thought I should probably do the same.
Because of issues I have experienced, I am more than a little concerned with mistaken identity issues so I like posting recent photos. The photo I currently use on my Facebook profile is about 5 years old and since then I have gained some weight and aged more than I want to admit.
Here is the new profile photo I am thinking of using [taken Monday, March 10, 2014].
Do you think I look too mean?

This post will become irrelevant if I ever take my other personal blog Q's Wire, offline. See the post on Q's Wire with the same date as this post's for relevancy.
Washed my hair Saturday. This was an all afternoon process. My blow dryer overheated once or twice so I had to wait for it to cool off and then it just seemed to take forever to dry. Then I had to put a curl in it.
These photos taken this morning. On the left the loose ponytail I put my hair in when I combed it out this morning and on the right the tighter [appears to be longer] ponytail I put it in to demonstrate issues for someone claiming to be a DOJ Attorney.
These photos taken around 8:00 pm Saturday evening. Most of the curl had relaxed by the time I took the photos.
News from Washington? You were paid-- and don't forget about your hair.

Went to the bank this morning, came home and made lunch.
This was really good. You can get Yakisoba [6 to a carton] from Costco.

It has been a quiet day. Got up around 7:30 a.m., had breakfast around 9:30 a.m. and researched most of the day.
Around 2:00 p.m. or so, I decided I wanted this [made them yesterday evening and thought they were pretty good]:
Researching food ideas for a project I am interested in. Queueing blog posts on my Tumblr blog. Washington news? Things happening.

Another day of snow. This time about six inches. The other photo [on the left] was taken Saturday, March 1st around 6:09 pm. I love it when the sky does that.
Do you watch True Detective on HBO? I missed this week's episode so I have a reminder set for 9:00 pm tonight for the re-airing.
I have new stakes for my banana plant which has a new leaf coming in. I re-staked the plant last night using a stake I already had in the plant. I like the way it looks now.
When the new leaf comes in- it should look even better. This is the plant I saved last year from a case of spider mites.
I am also doing some research for one or two projects.
