Jon and Dot

They look a little cold if you ask me. :)

Hope Concert IV

Even with Live Earth cancelled, our Jon still finds a way to help out a good cause...

Jon Bon Jovi and Southside Johnny will be among the performers at the Hope Concert IV, the latest in a series of benefits at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank. Other performers will include Gary U.S. Bonds, Bobby Bandiera and his Jersey Shore Rock-N-Soul Revue, Nicole Atkins, Brian Fallon (of the Gaslight Anthem), and Tim McLoone and the Shirleys. The show takes place at 8 p.m. Dec. 22, and tickets, priced at $100-$500, go on sale Dec. 3 at 9:30 a.m. Proceeds will go to the Parker Family Health Center in Red Bank.

Tickets will be available only by phone, at (973) 842-9000, and through the theater's box office, at 99 Monmouth St. There will be no Internet sales.Previous Hope Concerts, with different beneficiaries, took place in 2003, 2006 and 2007. Bruce Springsteen appeared at the first two, and Bon Jovi, Southside Johnny, Bonds and Bandiera have performed at all three. Springsteen's participation is possible, even though he's not on the official list of performers (he often isn't at benefits like these, but shows up anyway).


Christmas Shopping...

I discovered last night that Monday night is a good time to shop. I was not one of the millions that fought her way into the stores at a ridiculous hour of the morning on Black Friday. Nor did I attempt any shopping over the weekend. I went out last night. It was fantastic. I didn't wait in any lines, I found good parking spots, I even found just about everything I was looking for. I'm going to have to remember this for next year.

Can I just tell you that I LOVE Target. I got about half my shopping done last night because they had everything. Between there and J.C. Penney, I made a huge dent in my list. Whoo hooo!

Now my other problem is hiding and wrapping. It's a good thing my 11 year old doesn't like the basement. Tho, keeping the big kid (the hub) from snooping, that's another story. My trunk has become the hiding place of choice for a while now. My car is parked in the garage here at work or in the driveway at home and when I'm home, he's home so he can't snoop. I swear my hub will never grow up.

Thank goodness. :)


December 1...

Monday, December 1, 2008

It has begun. My 11 year-old started his countdown to Christmas. We have the advent calendar at the ready and when he gets home from school today he will pop out the chocolate and that will be that. Our outside lights went up this past Friday and our tree will go up this week. It seems as if we just packed all that stuff away and here we are, dragging it all out again. Where does the time go?

I have a few gifts bought, but I was not one of the many thousands who were in line at o-dark-early on Friday morning after Thanksgiving try to get a I-just-have-to-have-that item. I didn't feel the need to drag my turkey-stuffed self anywhere on Friday. So, I'm going out tonight after work. Do you suppose there is anything left in the stores now?

There are Christmas Cards to write, cookies to bake, packages to wrap. It seems as though the to-do list gets so much longer this time of year. I wish there were more hours in the day, but I manage to get everything done. Usually. A missing tag on a package, a card that didn't get in the mail soon enough, a missing cookie recipe. Eh, no big deal. I'm not perfect. I try my best to get everything done and if something slips through the cracks, the world won't come crashing to an end. At least it hasn't yet.

So, I'm starting today. I have a blank sheet of paper and a fresh pen. I'm making my to-do list for the month. I think I may need a second sheet of paper.

I hope my pen doesn't run out of ink.

About Me

My photo
I am and always have been a Bon Jovi fan. This blog is just my obsession taken a step further, my imagination in high gear if you will. I love to read and decided to see what would happen when I took that love of the written word and ramped it up a bit.
