The Joke Is On Me

The other day my husband was late so he had to drive himself to work that day. Anyway he called me later to tell that he had stopped at a station and there was an ambulance there but left right before him. He told that he noticed that a lunch box had fallen out of the ambulance. He stopped to pick it up and looked inside to notice a toe in it. He called 911 to tell them about it. He asked me if I knew he they called and I said no. He said they called the tow truck.

It wasn't until he said that I realized he was pulling a joke on me. I told you got me good. I should have realized that the ambulance would not be carrying a toe in a lunch box but I wasn't really thinking about it.

Well I thought that I would share that about the joke being on me.
So long and Happy Halloween

Parick Swayze Will Not Be Forgotten

I was on my way to work this morning and I heard on the radio about Patrick Swayze passing away yesterday.
I remember the first time I saw him was in the North and South series. I thought he was one good looking man. I was trying to decide if I had a favorite movie but I don't think I do. I just had to write something about him. I will miss seeing any new movies . I am going to go now I am tired. If anyone has a favorite movie it would be interesting to hear from you.

Making Pickles

When I was a young girl and my mother go and pick beans and snap beans or shell peas I decided that when I was grown I would not do that stuff again.
It is so amazing that the things that you said you were not going to do when you were young are the the things that you are doing when you are grown.
My husband planted a garden and I told him that it was his thing and I didn't want to have anything to do with it. Well guess what?
I am the one stuck with dealing with what comes from the garden.
He planted cucumbers and he wanted some dill pickles and so I made some ....

Bread & Butter Pickles Pictures, Images and Photos

My next project is some bread n butter pickles. If anyone has a recipe for them

I would appreciate it. I told my husband that I am not guaranteeing how they will taste but I tried. I will let you know after we try them.

Well talk to you later.

I'm Just The Proud Mother

I'm a little late on posting this but you know how time flies especially when you have snap beans from the garden to put up.
Anyway my daughter took choir in school this past year and at the end they had a competition. They were being judged from an outside party. There were 15 to start out with.
My daughter sang solo and made third place so she got her trophy and a medal. Here are some photos. I'm sorry the photo is sideways but I couldn't get it right side up.
You can still see her with her trophy.

Choosing a Garden that is Perfect for You

If you're thinking about starting a garden, the first thing you need to
consider is what type of garden you will have. There are many different
choices and often it can be hard to pick just one, but hopefully you can
narrow it down. But by narrowing it down, you'll make the gardening
experience easier on yourself and the plants. If all your plants are
similar, then it shouldn't be very hard to care for them all. So here are
some of the main garden ideas for you to choose from.

If you're just looking for something to look nice in your yard, you'll
want a flower garden. These are usually filled with perennial flower.
Perennial flowers are flowers which stay healthy year-round. They're
basically weeds because of their hardiness, only nice looking. Different
areas and climates have different flowers which are considered perennials.
If you do a quick internet search for your area, you can probably find a
list of flowers that will bring your flower garden to life. These usually
only require work in the planting stage - after that, the flower take care
of themselves. The only downside to this is that you don't have any
product to show for it.

Another choice for your garden is to have a vegetable garden. These
usually require a little more work and research than a flower garden, but
can be much more rewarding. No matter what time of the year it is, you can
usually find one vegetable that is still prospering. That way you can have
your garden be giving you produce almost every day of the year! When
starting a vegetable garden, you should build it with the thought in mind
that you will be adding more types of veggies in later. This will help
your expandability. Once all your current crops are out of season, you
won't be stuck with almost nowhere to put the new crops. A vegetable
garden is ideal for someone who wants some produce, but doesn't want to
devote every waking hour to perfecting their garden (see below.)

One of the more difficult types of gardens to manage is a fruit garden.
It's definitely the most high-maintenance. When growing fruits, many more
pests will be attracted due to the sweetness. You not only have to deal
with having just the right dirt and fertilizer, you have to deal with
choosing a pesticide that won't kill whoever eats the fruits. Your fruit
garden will probably not produce year-round. The soil needs to be just
right for the plants to grow, and putting in another crop during its
off-season could be disastrous to its growth process. If you're willing to
put lots of work into maintaining a garden, then a fruit garden could be a
good choice for you.

So now that I've outlined some of the main garden types that people
choose, I hope you can make a good decision. Basically, the garden type
comes down to what kind of product you want, and how much work you want to
put into it. If you're looking for no product with no work, go with a
flower garden. If you want lots of delicious product, but you are willing
to spend hours in your garden each day, then go for a fruit garden. Just be sure you don't get into something you can't handle!

Burning The Fat: Aerobics and Your Body

There are many great things about starting an aerobics program for your body. One of the greatest things about aerobics is that you can use it to burn fat in ways that are easier on your body than dieting. It is very simple to burn fat using aerobics as exercise, because there are many ways that you can train your body to do the work that it is supposed to in order to really get the most out of the aerobics that you are doing.

While you are building up a sweat and working on your heart rate, all of your muscles are also getting great things out of the aerobics work that you are doing. As you bring new blood and oxygen to all of your body systems, you are going to find that you are giving yourself the best chance to really get rid of all that unwanted fat as you go along. Working hard to burn fat is something that you can finally take control of when you are doing aerobics on a regular basis.

When you body is in constant motion, all of the body systems are working hard to maintain body functions at a normal rate. Because your muscles need to be moving more, your heart is going to have to work harder because the only way to get your muscles to move faster is to supply them with more blood and therefore more oxygen. Because your heart has to work harder your lungs need to work harder to provide your heart with the oxygen that it needs to keep pumping.

All of these things are going to work in tandem with each other to make a situation in which you are really getting the most out of your entire work out. When all of these systems are working together, you are going to find that you are much stronger than you think you would be. As your entire body fights to work harder, you are going to find that actually you are burning fat because your body needs energy to keep moving and to stay moving at a certain rate. It will find this energy in the stored pockets of fat that you have in your body. All of these things are going to happen quickly, and you will find that you are going to be much better off as you start to work out using aerobics more often.

Dan Ackroyd and Crystal Head

Yes this is me with Dan Ackroyd. He happened to be in my home area promoting his new Vodka called Crsytal Head. Up above you can see where he autographed a bottle for me. I also included the front of the bottle. It looks like a skull. I brought my daughter Shannon with me but she wouldn't let me get a picture of her with Dan Ackroyd. He is very nice in person. I enjoyed meeting him. I still haven't opened the bottle yet. I think I might just keep it like it is and not open it.
Well going to go for now.

Digital Scrapbooking Help

I have found that I have an interest in scrapbooking and so i have started to make some scrapbooks. But I want to learn how to make my own kits. I don't have photoshop for one reason it is expensive and to put it simply I can't afford it. I want to learn how to 3d graphics to add to my designs. If anyone out there knows about this I would appreciate any information you want to pass along. Well talk to you later.

Entrecard What A Shame

First I want to say that I had a great Easter although the weather could have cooperated better.

I have been gone for awhile and since I have gone there have been changes with Entrecard. I have read and watched what other people had to say about it and I have to say that I agree with some of them.

I have all these paid ads to be approved or rejected and the sad thing is that I have never seen them before. They don't drop on your site. I will not approve of paid ads on my sites unless they pay with credits like it is was when it first started out.

What I am tempted to do is make my own list of sites that I like to visit and drop Entrecard altogether but the thing about that is that I would never get to see the great new ones coming up. I would like to hear your opinion on this. I loved Entrecard when it first started because it was a great way to see all these great blogs that I would never known existed before.

Well I guess I am done with my ranting so I guess I am going for now.
I think it is a shame that what started out so great is turning out to be just like any other paid advertising site.

This is my first attempt at scrapbooking. Have a long way to go. That is my grandson in the center. It is fun doing this. I would like to be able to use my scrapbook as a template or background for my blog but I don't know anything about doing that yet.

My Mini Vacation

We went on a mini vacation to Talladega, Al to visit my stepdaughter and on the way back we stopped at the Bass Pro Shop and it was just fascinating inside. There was a fireplace with couches surrounding it so that you can sit down and rest. I have put some of the pictures from it in this post.

My favorite was the deer drinking the beer oh that might have been a magarita. I also took photos of the scenery as we drove up there. We drove up on Saturday and came back on Sunday. While we were there we went to an auction which is a first for me. We wound up buying a chair, dresser with mirrors, gun rack, a big picture and a waffle iron. We drove up in my car and so we had to call my stepson to come in his brand new truck to come and bring it home.

I just wanted to share so I guess I'll go for now.

My Grandsons Colin and Zachary

Zachary will be 3 in December Colin will be 1 in June
I think I have the cutest grandsons. I don't get to see Zachary like I want. His mother won't bring him around until she and my son are divorced and have papers. Hopefully that won't be to much longer. As you can see the dates in the pictures that is when I saw them last. Colin's mother finally let my son Pat get to keep him for that weekend. I had not seen him but once since he was born. He is supposed to get him for this weekend too. We will see. It is after 11 at night here so I am going to go for now.

Photo Of The Beach On The Gulf Coast

Shannon's Day At The Beach

This photo was taken last year and soon the beach will be full with people. I know these photos are old but the beach is eternal because it stays the same.
I lost the cord to hook my camera to my computer to download pictures. I wonder if you can put the card from the camera into the computer and upload that way. If you can I will let you know.
Well so long for now

All Things New Again

With spring just around the corner I see the rebirth of flowers starting to bud out. It is like a new beginning with spectacular visions to come. In the spirit of renewal I had my hair cut. It is shorter than I usually have it but I love it. I'm sure you ladies know how it makes you feel when you get a new do. I have actually got comments about how it makes me look younger. I will take anything I can get. Actually when I tell people how old I am they say that I don't look like it. I had a pretty good weekend this past one. I got to go to a concert and I got to see my grandson.
It is the second time I have seen him since he was born and he will 1 in June. You know when you have children and grandchildren it is a renewal.
When I get the pictures downloaded into my computer I will post a picture of my beautiful grandson.
Well I'm going to go for now, Talk to you later

The Big Five Oh

My brother on March 6 turned the big five oh, yep he is now 50 years old. I took him out for his bday. We went to see this group called the Australian BeeGee's at the Beau Rivage Casino in our neck of the woods. I had never heard of them before but they were good. They sounded just like the original Bee Gee's. My nephew that is in the picture with him above also went along with his girlfriend.
Needless to say my nephew fell asleep. It was dark in there and it was not the type of music he normally listens to.
But we all had a good time.
I will be posting regularly now. I had to get me another computer and get internet again. I was going through internet withdrawal and I did not like that. You just feel cut off from everything.
Going to go for now.
I have returned

Born In The Wrong Time

Do you ever feel that you were born in the wrong time. I do sometimes. I love the pre war South. Sure I would miss the modern conveniences like air condtioning and the washer and dryer. I think that the way women dressed back then made you feel feminine. You knew who was a man and who was a woman. There was no guessing. I have seen people that I honestly couldn't tell if it was male or female. I love the dresses of those times but you know what is funny? I do not even own a dress.

I know I haven't written much but I do not have internet right now and things are not going so good in my personal life right now. I will getting things straightened out pretty soon.

I am going to go for now. I'll try not to wait so long in writing again.

Tell me if you feel like you were born in the wrong time and what time and why?
