    recycling bins, I noticed I had four empty bottles of wine  This is the last week.  This is not good.  Normally, I do 2 a week unless I have company.  Drinking is insidious – it sneaks up on you.

    I was a party girl when I was young – plus I can’t handle what I used to.

    My question:  When they take samples of my blood for my welfare check (in lieu of SS), will they deny said welfare checks because they find alcohol in my system.  Plus, do I  have to sign a statement that I believe in God.  (which I happen to but won’t admit to the authorities).

    I’m askew. There are many changes coming up.

    And no – I’m not drinking now.

    she used to live a little bit up the road from where I did.

    Sept. 7 [2006] (Bloomberg) — Canadian folk singer Joni Mitchell, whose first hit 36 years ago was about the perils of paving paradise, is trying to prevent a London miner from muscling in on her piece of it.

    Pan Pacific Aggregates Plc plans to build a $100 million industrial-rock mine on British Columbia’s Sunshine Coast, where mild temperatures and a rugged shoreline attract vacationers and retirees from around the world.

    The quarry would take an “incredibly beautiful area of wildlife and turn it into an industrial moonscape,” Mitchell said in a telephone interview from Los Angeles. The singer gained fame in 1970 for “Big Yellow Taxi”, whose lyrics railed against developers who “paved paradise and put up a parking lot.'”

    Mitchell, 62, is one of more than 4,000 people who signed petitions circulated by two groups opposing the mine. One of them, Save Our Sunshine Coast, led an armada of 70 yachts and sailboats along the coast in July to protest Pan Pacific’s plan.

    Last year I was fortunate to spend time at a very special spot on the Sunshine Coast: Rockwater Secret Cove Resort & Spa. Book your tentalow now! Nearby neighbors include none other than legendary Canadian singer/songwriter Joni Mitchell.

    through the years. When I was younger her very high notes hurt my ears, in the actually hurt sense.

    Great writer, and I’ve come to love many of her songs now.
