    For Paris….get this book
    Memorable Walks in Paris by Frommers (i think). My husband worked in Paris for about 6 weeks back 1999. I had this book and would take one of these self guided tours while he worked. I saw so many interesting things in the city that I would have never known about on my own. How long each tour takes is up to you. It really depends on how much time you spend in a museum, a shop, a park, etc.

    Also…strangest museum….yet coolest museum….hard to explain…
    There is a bizarre Dali museum, its not real odd but just odd enough which gives you the perfect perspective for Salvador Dali. (his voice is piped in overhead).

  3. from the not really tall, not great teeth, and definately not light hair….or hair at all for that matter….i find this post very disturbing, or maybe this is why you feel you are impatient with me sometimes? if i get lifts, bleech, and get blond implants am i on the road?

    I also have to give you a pass on the cooking…..since i bought this house and it’s lovely kitchen (how has that not made it on the blog yet???). it truly inspires one to avoid cooking at all costs.

    Since i also actually can lay calim to some of your 3’s here (skydiving, brown belt, and can run without shin splints) i am further concerned.

    for the record as well for those reading – kathleenie was very patient when i was a few minutes late, again, tonight. i love you hon – please dont leave me for someone in the spirit world 😉

    Oh yes, the sedentary hobbies…..mine are too! I can’t skip along like I would like to…..at my age and weight, all it does is put my hip out of place!!And I used to swing on vines in the trees with my brother when I was younger….
    Everyone said my sister would end up being a burden on someone, and it was me who had to take care of her, and it wasn’t so bad!!It’ll all work out!
    Oooh, and that cleaning house bit….my husband is always sighing……

    sweetie…the autism awareness patterns link should be LIVE
    now (it’s different than the first one…technical difficulties, yada yada yada….)
    it may not be a CURE, but who knows?

  7. I love it when Hubsters comment!
