Instead, the comedian and filmmaker decided to move into an Ikea store in suburban New Jersey, where on Monday he unloaded two suitcases into a spacious bedroom at the store.
At night when the store is closed, he says he'll play laser tag with security guards and even plans to host a housewarming party.
"The fact that Ikea is letting me do this is mind-boggling," said Malkoff, lounging on a bed in his new room. "There's no way I'm going back. I love this way too much.
Deputy store manager Julie Mott said Malkoff contacted the store about three weeks ago and presented a proposal to move in.
But despite the hospitality, Malkoff did find a few problems: The sinks don't work, and neither does the toilet, refrigerator, flat-screen television or the washer and dryer.
He must shower in the staff locker room and will have access to the staff cafeteria to cook his own meals, if he chooses, Mott said.
His wife of 2 1/2 years, Christine, isn't as thrilled with his new digs and has instead opted to stay with relatives in upstate New York. "For some reason," he said, "she doesn't want to live in a store."
Pittsburgh is a neat city with a rich past. I bet even people that have lived here all their lives won't know about all of these ~

It is the second anniversary of the Sago mine disaster.
This monument displays each of the miners that lost their lives that day.
Only one survived.
Sago,West Virginia is about a 20-minute drive from Hubby's hometown.

Santa was very good to me and brought me this:
He also brought this 135 page instruction manual!
The instructions state:
Before operating this unit, please read this handbook thoroughly together with the "instruction manual" and the "cyber-shot step-up guide" and retain them for future reference.
Thank you, but I would like to take at least one photo before I'm too old and feeble to push the button!
so, I'm learning by trial and error!

THE GUIDING LIGHT!
Now, I've not been one to follow the soaps in recent years, but I remember my grandmother having lunch at 12:00 sharp so that she could listen to "her stories". Each one was 15 minutes long, "The Guiding Light" and "Search for Tomorrow". They were referred to as soaps because the were sponsored by Joy dish washing liquid and Spic and Span.
Here's some info about the series:
Guiding Light (known as The Guiding Light prior to 1975, ) is an Emmy award winning American television program credited by the Guinness Book of World Records as being the longest-running soap opera in production and the longest running drama in television history.
The 15,000th televised episode of Guiding Light aired on September 7, 2006. Due to this series run, it is not only considered to be the longest soap opera, but the longest series of any show created.
The program was created by soap writer Irna Phillips, and began as an NBC radio serial on January 25, 1937 before moving to CBS on June 30, 1952, as a televised serial. This program has survived for over 70 years!

According to the quartermaster General of the Army, it is reported that Moses would have to have 1,500 tons of food each day.
Do you think Moses figured all this out before he left Egypt?...I think not!
A few days after Christmas, I have a favorite recipe that I always make.
It's a great way to use up any leftover ham...
Ham and cabbage
Put the ham bone into a large soup pot. Fill the pot about half full with water. Heat the water to a rolling boil so that any ham left on the bone will cook off. Add half of a medium onion, chopped.
Boil for 45 minutes to an hour.Remove the bone and pull off any remaining ham with a fork. Discard the bone and put remaining ham back into the pot.
Add about 6 quartered potatoes. I used red ones because that's what I had on hand. Cook until potatoes are tender, then add half a head of cabbage, chopped in large pieces, and a bag of frozen green beans.
Hubby likes a thicker broth so I sprinkle in some instant mashed potatoes. (great as a thickener for soups and stews).
Make sure you make enough for leftovers because it's always better the second day after the flavors mingle!...Enjoy!
Yesterday morning, you couldn't find the dining room table in all this mess...
But by early afternoon, everything was back to normal...and it always looks so bare.
I remember thinking when I started this blog...what in the world will I ever find to talk about.
