Ashkon: Don’t Stop Believing ~ SF Giants 2010 Anthem Video

I heard Jim Rome talking about the different fan videos…but today was the first I saw ours (SF Giants).

Too Much AWESOME in this video! 🙂

On a side note: GO TEXAS! Would love to see a Giants & Rangers World Series.

FOR TODAY … 04 October 2010

Outside My Window… Still pretty dark out there. BUT IT’S RAINING! It’s been raining for TWO WHOLE DAYS! WOW! Mom Nature saved up all of the rain we didn’t get all summer long and is dumping it on us in TWO DAYS!

I am thinking… YEA SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS!!!!! WOOO HOOOO!!!! But goodness! Did you all HAVE TO take it the very last game of the season to wrap up the West Division?! HOLY COW! I have to wait until Thursday to watch you play again! ACK! I pray that Fox Sports will NOT have the games…absolutely HATE their commentators. KRUK & KUIP ALL THEY WAY BABY!

GREAT HIGHLIGHTS of yesterday’s game! ~ Absolutely love watching Buster bounce up behind Brian on the mound! LOL!

We went to the Eagles concert on Friday…3 hours of GREAT MUSIC…but then no encore! No goodbyes! The strobe fire alarms were going off. Sheesh. Not how I wanted it to end, but I must say…AWESOME! Don Henley is still DA BOMB! Glen & Timothy still sound good. And Joe? Joe is still crazy! ROFL!

I am thankful for… for my friends. That I have friends and co-workers that think of me enough that they would loan me money for a down payment on a car. That still blows me away. Makes me cry all over again.

From the kitchen… It’s MNF night…have no clue who is playing, but it will be someone else that will be making my dinner. Round Table pizza or Giant Burger falafels. 🙂

I am wearing… Jeans, tennies, SF Giants pullover hoodie, hair in a ponytail.

I am creating… I’ll be finishing up a quilt that I missed the deadline for a craft challenge. This one I will look into donating to the 4th Street charity where they give items to the kids living in those run-down motels in Reno. So many kids are so close to being homeless here in our town.

I am going… start putting some stuff onto ebay again. Went through the boxes in the basement. Have a pile to donate, sell, and keep. Now I need to go through the keep pile and start the process all over again.

I am reading… The book that I picked up at Sundance Bookstore
Coop: A Family, a Farm, and the Pursuit of One Good Egg by Michael Perry. I love this book!

I am hoping… Still hoping for a mend to April’s ribs. Hopefully she makes it into work today.

I am hearing… Air unit just kicking on, ice machine, me typing, Nickelback in the computer’s cd player.

Around the house… dishes in the sink, a floor that needs to be swept and mopped.

One of my favorite things… Falling off to sleep listening to rain, then being woken with a great big bolt of lightning and a KABOOM of thunder!

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… Finish a quilt. Find a place to take my damaged Saturn.

Here is a picture thought I’d share with you…

Friday Rambles…24 September 2010

I’ve had a few (okay…MANY) Sierra Nevada’s…the boys won one in Denver…I got to see ANDRES TORRES and BRIAN WILSON! Neighbors having a nice bbq…the week is ending nicely. Yes, indeed! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!! Andres IS BACK!!!!! I missed you SO MUCH!

It’s Friday…usually I’d say YAY! at this moment…but I’m still in a funk, I have a headache, it’s going to be 94F this weekend, there are loud and annoying motorcycles in town…the list goes on.

I’d normally say…let’s go down to Genoa and walk around the 90th Annual Candy Dance Craft Fair…but like I said above, it’s going to be HOT! Even up against the Sierra…it’s HOT!


Can’t walk downtown because of loud, annoying HD motorcycles…and people roaming around in clothes that, quite frankly, they have no business wearing! Makes me queasy. Some people really shouldn’t wear leather.


Can’t go up to Virginia City…well…because Harley’s go up there too, where the noise echos very loudly.


If it’s hot down here…it will definitely be hotter over in Placerville, so Apple Hill is out of the question.


The Giants are in Denver, so can’t go to a baseball game.


Speaking of the Giants…COME ON GUYS! 13-0?! A few of us would like you to distribute the runs a bit more evenly over all your games. Feast or Famine! OY! The heartburn! And when you have blowout games like that I don’t get to see Brian close a game! The humanity of it all! I really need a Wilson fix once in a while!

ps: hurry up and heal, Andres! Miss you out in center field!


Maybe Pyramid Lake! San Francisco is a little too far away (especially with no ball game to go to)…and I do need a body of water that’s bigger than the Truckee River and the bath tub.


I do need to finish a few quilts…but have been uninspired.


I have cat “mentoring’ at the Nevada Humane Society next Tuesday…learn the ins and outs of what to do and not to do while volunteering with the cats. Maybe I’ll go volunteer this weekend and walk some dogs…I need the exercise and I’m sure they’d like to stretch their legs too.


I finished reading The Colorado Kid earlier this week…not that great of a book. I think I expected more. I have absolutely no clue how they got SyFy’s Haven tied into Stephen King’s The Colorado Kid. Stephen King even wrote that you’ll either love or hate the book…well, I fall into the dislike range. Glad I read it, but won’t stay on my shelf.


This is Jack…he likes Jose, Bushmills Black, Jameson, and Tullamore Dew. 🙂 He’s from California…made by Justin Moeller of JM Ceramics. He makes me smile…even without the Bushmills.


Here’s to me snapping out of my funk! Talk to you next week.

For Today ~ 03 August 2010 ~ Simple Woman’s Daybook

FOR TODAY … 03 August 2010

Outside My Window… It’s 8:00 pm…sun is setting…bit of smoke from a fire near town (north side of Peavine Mountain), roses that need watering (I’m the only one who waters plants in this rental unit), pink hollyhocks across the street.

I am thinking… Wish I could still be in San Francisco…I had a blast there. And at Cliff Lede Winery. Sure wish I could afford their Poetry…goodness, that was a beautiful wine. Oh yes…and at Mario Andretti’s Winery! I just love Mario…and Michael…and Marco…and cousin John….ahhh hell…I love any ANDRETTI! 🙂

I am thankful for… Good memories. A great Giants and Dodgers game!

From the kitchen… Good LORD I made a KICKARSE dinner tonight! 🙂 Basil Tomato marinated BBQ’d chicken breasts; Heirloom tomatoes drizzled with a vinaigrette I made with fresh garden basil, garlic & oregano, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, sea salt, fresh ground pepper; pugliese bread with Port-Salut cheese; Raleys Mediterranean spiced blend olives (kalamata and green olives with peppers and fresh herbs); Toasted Head Untamed Red wine…the whole bottle. 🙂

I am wearing… shorts, pink t-shirt, barefoot and my hair up in a ponytail.

I am creating… Nothing.

I am going… to post pictures of the SF trip tomorrow.

I am reading… A Year in Provence…off and on.

I am hoping… that I can save up some money to take a trip to the Cliff Lede Winery for a tour/dinner and to take the Wine Train lunch trip.

I am hearing… the Giants – Rockies game on tv…GO GIANTS!

Around the house… clean… 🙂 I did the laundry, made dinner, did the dishes and am relaxing here posting and listening to the game.

One of my favorite things… Foggy mornings by the ocean with blue sunny sky in the afternoon. 🙂 Big sigh.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… go back to work…bleh.

Here is a picture thought I’d share with you… Not a picture but a FUNNY sound bite from Jim Rome…Brett Favre Dilla Hunting ~ Wait For It! Wait For IT! HEY YA’LL WATCH THIS! WAAAAHOOOOO!–Dilla-Hunt
