I love the Salvation Army. Had I known more about them as a child, I probably could have talked my Dad into helping me get involved with them. I was interested in other volunteering that I was aware of, but I could not be around tobacco smoke!... Read more

Well, the dog I got from my neighbors--they were going to send her to the animal shelter--had my main breeder-rooster, a Barred Rock, down and was plucking his back feathers off. In her defense, she does have a baby that is old enough to eat fr... Read more

I put in a fresh battery in my computer, and it is working better than it has for a few days. However, my Hotmail and Gmail accounts give me warnings that someone else is on them--YUCKKY! So, I haven't opened them on this computer for a few da... Read more

Yeahh! And, I am thankful for more warm-ish days. And, I'm getting a repaired vehicle back about Monday. My oldest sister is helping, along with my daughter,---so I can rely upon the vehicle. The home-owner got a new propane heater ins... Read more

Well, I did day 10 of the Happiness blog yesterday, and mentioned problems, too! Today, "Savor every bite." I opened an aging can of french beans, added some frozen peas, and topped it with some year-old cranberry sauce. The textures are nic... Read more

That, of course, includes foods that might be great for another blood-body type but that don't help me. And my half-room full of Women's Day, Self, Fitness, Yoga, etc. magazines; I like some of the handyman ones enough to keep them, and the Fi... Read more

Today, time for myself. I actually listened to Boortz on talk radio. He has calmed down an bit from when I first listened to him, so I do listen occasionally. He's found enough, to make Herman Cain's sex-offender victims invalid, to sat... Read more
