We are never ready. I wasn’t ready for my first 5k or the...

sparkleneely: Nothing new here,I was taking the A train to the beach in the 1960’s! We also had burger joints, ice cream shops and McNulteys-the place to be on the weekends, even in the winter.

A lot of What We Are Talking About Today reminds me of that 30 Rock episode. You know the one.
