Morning Jolt In Chicago - Thank God No One Was Hurt

A taxicab and a car collided at the intersection of North Avenue and Wells Street in the Old Town neighborhood at about 5:30 a.m. this morning, sending the cab crashing through the window of a Starbucks coffee shop, a Fire Department spokeswoman said.

Each car had only a driver, and both were taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, she said. No pedestrians were hurt.

Thanks to Laura Basaloco-Lapo for a Great Time Last Night

Thank you so much to Laura Basaloco, San Francisco Family Law Attorney for hosting our Knitting Circle. In addition to great food and company, Laura even broke out some very nice Portuguese wine. :)

We had a great group of women and a special "shout out" to our newest group member, Katy Sullivan, soon-to-be graduate of the SFSU Paralegal Program.

Next meeting date is Tuesday, October 18 - details of location, etc. to follow.

Remember to bring a friend - and it's NOT just for knitters - crocheters, cross-stitchers and general crafts folk welcome :)

I Get By With A Little Help From My Friends

This was one of those days that I just was not quite sure about. . .doubting myself, doubting my worth - having a pity party - just plain feeling sorry for myself.

Just when I thought no one cared - Liebchen came to the rescue. Now all my friends know that a hot cup of STRONG coffee is one guilty pleasure I can never resist. Liebchen left this nice little Keurig cup on my desk (we have one of those fancy Keurig coffee machines at work).

And this blend must have been created especially for me, it's called "Dark Magic" Extra Bold Roast by Green Mountain Coffee. . .

5:00 clock here I come!
