Three years ago —

I smoked my last cigarette.  I can’t believe it’s me telling you this.  It’s been THREE YEARS!  But yes, three years and I really haven’t had a craving for a smoke all this time.  Oh sure — a sudden twinge that leaves just as quickly as it came.. but I really don’t want one, and I hope I don’t sink low enough to have another.  Chantix works!

Hurricane Ike.

On another note… Hurricane season starts today –  NOAA has their predictions for the coming hurricane season – they expect it to be an active season with more than normal storms:

An “active to extremely active” hurricane season is expected for the Atlantic Basin this year according to the seasonal outlook issued today by NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center – a division of the National Weather Service. As with every hurricane season, this outlook underscores the importance of having a hurricane preparedness plan in place

(have plenty of water, ice, beer, cocktail preparations – and be sure to dress well!)
