The calender says "June" but if you go by the temperature it's been more like April. I'd love to start wearing some of my SUMMER clothes but "No Way." It has been rainy, foggy, windy, humid and sometimes dowright chilly. One day I even had to put on the heat. Rain, rain go away - come again some other day!!


A few weeks ago I happened to catch a news program that was showing the public what goes on at the White House. In one segment they showed President Obama running an errand for this staff. He went by limo with his body-guards to pick up burgers at Five Guys. Needless to say he caused a great deal of excitment at the place.

Well, Five Guys recently openned up in my neighborhood. If it's good enough for the president, it's good enough for me!

My friend and I decided to give it a try. All we knew about it was that the burgers were good and the price was right. The menu is small, it's pretty much burgers and hot dogs but there is a choice of "a regular burger" or a "little burger and a choice of "regular fries" or "large fries." We ordered the large burger and fortunatly decided to split one order of the regular fries! The regular burger was so large it was difficult to eat and we couldn't even put a dent in the fries!!

Next time we go we'll order a "little burger" and get all the toppings. I don't know how we'll handle the fries, maybe if there are four of use we'll be able to finish them!!


This month the book club that I belong to reviewed "700 Sundays" by Billy Crystal. Usually the club draws six to eight people.

His book was a big draw. A record breaking eighteen people came to learn about Crystal's life. Not only did we talk about his life, there was a lot of laughter and reminiscences about our own lives.

Next month we'll be reading "Saturdays Wife" by Naomi Ragen. Another light summer read.


Before I go to the movies I like to get input from friends and read the reviews on the Medacritic site. When I checked out "My Life in Ruins" it had an average rating of "34" and one reviewer rated it "zero!!" I have never seen that before and was turned off until a few friends said that they enjoyed the movie. Well, there was nothing to see so we took a chance and found that it was better than "zero." - What saved the movie for me was seeing Richard Dreyfuss act. I remember seeing him when he first started out, he was great then and he's still great.

Did you see this movie, what did you think of it? Are there any movies you would recommend?

I'm looking forward to a sunny and warm July. While there's life, there's hope. :-)

You need to come south again for the heat, Millie. It was 91* here today, no humidity and gorgeous!!

I haven't seen that movie, but I love Richard Dreyfuss almost as much as I love Billy Crystal. I would llike to read that book.
I don't see movies until I rent them on NetFlix so I can't comment on new ones. That movie doesn't sound good to me, though.

Sorry about your rain. It can get old in a hurry. We had a violent storm last night that blew things over on both patios, but there wasn't much rain in my part of town. If you want sunshine I can guarantee it in Arizona. Even on a rainy day the sun will shine sometime.

I have been "lurking" for awhile and want to tell you how much I love your blog! I was a bit surprised however to not find a mention of Michael Jackson's passing in your blog this week!

I would love to hear what you have to say on this subject!

All the best!

As for movies, I would recommend The Soloist. I was familiar with the real life story based on Steve Lopez' column/articles in the L.A. Times. The film appeared to be true to reality.

Sounds to me like I have to move South if I want warm weather. While I was in Florida this winter it was sunny almost every day and very little rain.

Still raining here today!


My post "Another Loss" was made on Sunday June 21. MJ died on Thursday June 25.

He was an outstanding talent. That's what we will always remember about him.


Thanks for stopping by. I did get to see "The Soloist." That was an eye opening learning experience about homeless people.

Anymore suggestions will be appreciated.
I just saw The Proposal and loved it. The Alaskan scenery is ourtsanding and Betty White once again proves her slill as a comedian.

Thanks for the recomendation, going to see the movie today.

That beautiful Alaska scenery you mentioned was taken in Gloucester, Ma.!!!!
Millie, we just went through an awful heat wave in Paris. I hate rain, but too hot is too hot! :(
I like Billy Crystal and you made me feel like having a go at his book
I don't think that movie is shown in Paris yet.

Saw the movie and enjoyed it very much! I was wrong: the movie took place in Rockport, Ma. I've been there a number of times and recognized some of the shops and the water views.

I thought it was a fun version of "The Devil Wears Prada."
Hi Millie~ Our whole month of June's weather was horrible too. July's weather has been making up for it. We've had some wonderful days. Hope your weather is improving as well.

I just asked that you be my friend on Facebook.
I forgot to add, Man and I have been to Five Guys as well. We liked it and will probably return. Have you heard of CheeBurger CheeBurger? It's on the same order as Five Guys but I liked it better than Five Guys.
Thats a nice movie .. i really like it ..
Great post, have you seen it's a site that specializes in independent living
