My Underwear

Twice in less than a week, I have discovered that my underwear is inside out.
Once you discover it, there's really no point in turning them right side out, is there?
Surely it's an unwritten rule. You may as well finish the day inside out.
So, what is going here? I have a few thoughts...
  • I likely am folding and putting away my clean underwear inside out
  • I am dressing before sunrise
  • I am totally inattentive
  • I am having sexual relations with an alien during afternoon abductions, and he knows nothing about cotton crotches.

Dear Tide

I am writing to say what an excellent product you have.
I've used it all of my married life, as my Mom always told me it was the best.
Now that I am in my fifties I find it even better!
In fact, about a month ago, I spilled some red wine on my new white blouse.
My inconsiderate and uncaring husband started to belittle me about how clumsy I was, and generally started becoming a pain in the neck. One thing led to another and somehow I ended up with his blood on my new white blouse! I grabbed my bottle of Tide with bleach
alternative, to my surprise and satisfaction, all of the stains came out!
In fact, the stains came out so well the detectives who came by yesterday told me that the DNA testson my blouse were negative. Then my attorney called and said that I was no longer considered a suspect in the disappearance of my husband.
What a relief!
Going through menopause is bad enough without being a murder suspect!
I thank you, once again, for having a great product.
Well, gotta go. I have to write to the Hefty bag people.

Peeping Tom "Z"

Well, finding something with Z is about as hard as getting a zebra out of a zadradicus.
In our community we have a Z name: Zander White, a Kim and Ian.
But...we will play a little game today. All you need is your brain, and maybe a pencil. No car.
I will give you hints to five letters. Unscramble them to make a five letter word.
  • The son of a bear, married. He'll never have a son in law. The first letter of his name, is not found in any of his brothers first names. That's your first letter. Pretty easy, eh?
  • A male with a two part nickname. The entire nickname contains three of the second letter in the alphabet, and also three of the 15th letter in the alphabet. The second letter in his real first name, is your second letter.
  • A captain has several daughter in laws. One of them is the daughter of a woman whose name started with Z. Next door, they had two sons, who each have two sons; one which has the same first name as one of "Mercedes & Wilbert"'s sons. The first letter of the sons with the same first name is your third letter.
  • Growing up , she lived on a road with a 4 letter name. She had many siblings. She married an E, not a B, with many siblings, and she never had to change the monogram on her luggage. They have only daughters. Thinking about the numerical placement in the alphabet: the daughter's first letter, plus 8, equals the corresponding number to the fourth letter in this game.
  • And lastly, there's a male in the community, within eyesight of the "X " marks the spot. The last letter in his last name, is also the first letter in his wife's first name. Your fifth and final letter is the first letter in his middle name.

And if you have all 5 letters correctly, you should have no problem solving this word scramble.

If you have doubts.... the second window, on the second story, of the home of the third child, born to the couple on 89 Rock Road, has the answer .

Chicken Bones by Ganong

Peeping Tom

Last weeks "Y" windows were: Yvon a Bernice & Real, Yvette a Ricky, Yvon a Brian & Elaine, and Yvonne a Mitchell.
Tomorrow is the final letter. When I started this I thought 26 letters, and 26 weeks, would seem like an eternity.
But the time just flew !
Thanks for participating !

Tidy Tuesday

Jewelry has always been hard for me to keep organized. Too many earrings ... yes, I admit it. You know it's true.
And I have a jewelry box. I got it for Christmas one year, with a note that said "Now you have no reason to leave your jewelry everywhere. " But guess what... I still tend to leave them here and there.
Right now I have broken chains, single earrings, earrings I hate, etc... I also have many empty gift boxes that I keep, for no reason.
I read that the best place to start is to empty the contents, and start from scratch.
Some organize their jewelry according the colour, or gold or silver.
Sectioned trays are almost a must. If your jewelry box isn't sectioned, get an organizer, or an ice cube tray. And hooks for necklaces are a must.
One thing I did see was a tea cup, for earrings to hang around the edges, and chains to nestle inside the cup. I just might trade my pretty little dish at bedside for an elegant tea cup.
Toss out unrepairable, sell odd gold pieces, and give away what you no longer wear.

Dollarama Greeting Cards

I tried to take a pic...

Monday's Sexual Post

The texture of semen is the topic. When asked if semen was lumpy, my first thought was no. I figured that it can perhaps look lumpy, since it's being expelled with such a force, with spurts and contractions. You know, it doesn't discharge nice and even like the mayo at Subway.
So, I thought I best research the topic.
Thickened lumpy semen does indeed occur. Usually occurs if the male ejaculates infrequently, but the colour, consistency, and volume of semen changes all the time.
Called Tapioca Pudding Syndrome, a thicker yellowish semen, with jelly-like beads, is perfectly normal.
~~Younger men tend to have more watery and clear semen. The whitish substance tends to increase as you get older, and it also seems to take longer for the body to manufacture. The more frequent you ejaculate, the clearer and less lumpy the semen will be.~~
I don't know why I hesitated putting this picture of thick gel-like semen. It's certainly not as graphic as the other picture I had posted a couple weeks ago. This looks more like something that came from a stuffy nose rather than from an aching penis.
And I won't be held responsible for any decrease in Tapioca sales.

World's Shortest Man

According to Reuters news
~~a Guinness World Records team measured Chandra Bahadur Dangi at 54.60 centimeters (21.5 inches), declaring the 72-year-old even shorter the previous title holder, Junrey Balawing, from the Philippines, who stood at 23.5 inches at the age of 18 last year.
He comes from Nepal, home to Mount Everest, the world's highest peak.
From a poor and uneducated family in a remote part of Nepal, Dangi said he had never heard of Mount Everest.
Dangi, whose parents died when he was still in his teens, lives with his brother with, he said, no desire to marry. His family has no idea when he stopped growing as many Nepali villages still lack basic health care. Dangi has never seen a doctor in his life. Five of his brothers and two sisters are of normal size.Dangi mostly stays at home, needing assistance to move around, preparing head straps used by villagers to carry loads.~~

Week #40 Chicken Biscuit

1 can cream of chicken soup
1 cup water or chicken broth
1/2 tsp minced onion
1/8 tsp poultry seasoning
1 cup chicken, cooked and cubed
1/2 cup potatoes, cooked and cubed
1/2 cup frozen vegetables
Biscuits ( pillsbury, homemade, or doughboy recipe)
Preheat your oven to 350F.
Mix the first 7 indgredients.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Top it with the uncooked biscuit dough.
Bake for another 15-20 minutes, uncovered.
Comments: It was good, as it always is. Son #1 doesn't really like biscuits but says they are good in this casserole. Loverboy says he can really taste the poultry seasoning, and says there's not enough chicken in it. I hardly believe him. I did add more chicken and potatoes than asked for. And after putting the biscuits, I cooked it for 20 minutes at 400F, just as I do for my tea biscuits. It's very good.

Star fruit


Star fruit, or carambola, is attractive enough. Great to decorate any dessert. Is it flavourful? I would say, not really. A tad bit of a citrus taste.
They are small. One small one sliced will yield about 2/3 cup.
It's ripe when the edges have a tiny bit of brown on them.
They don't need to be peeled or seeded. Just wash and eat. Or slice and eat, since it's so pretty.

Homemade Valentines

Okay, so I am a bit late with this. It's cute and I need to share it just the same. I found this on a website Homemade Serenity.
They took a picture of their child, as if he was holding a flower bouquet. Printed out 25 photos with a little caption added. Used a knife to make two slits, one above and one under his hand, and slipped in a sucker!

Speaking of Maine...

Last year Maine lawmakers approved legalizing switchblade knives, but only for people with one arm.
The blade cannot exceed 3 inches in lenght.

Rocky

~~The biggest lobster ever caught in Maine, a 27-pounder (12.25 kg) nicknamed "Rocky" ,was released back into the ocean yesterday after being trapped in a shrimp net last week. The 40-inch (one-meter) male crustacean was freed in the waters of the Atlantic Ocean."The lobster was caught near the seaside village of Cushing and brought to the Maine State Aquarium in West Boothbay. Because he became acclimated to the water near the aquarium, the lobster was released in West Boothbay rather than where he was caught." Scientists are unable to accurately estimate the age of lobsters of this size. The marine lab has no record of a larger lobster being caught in the state. The world's largest recorded lobster was a 44-pounder (20-kg) caught off Nova Scotia in 1977, according to the Guinness Book of World Records.~~ Reuters

Peeping Tom "Y"







X marked the spot at the ballfield. On the building that once housed equipment. To be honest, I didn't realize how badly the building needed paint. The X was barely visible. We should have a special "X" reunion this spring, and paint it. You and I and the rest of the blog readers. What'cha think? ( I had two X watchers who thought the building was still "Partridge family" colors, with a smiley face.)
And the "Y" windows are here. It's the last windows I will peek at. Next week, I have something else planned for Z.

On Falling

There becomes an age when falling down is scary, and not recommended. I have reached it. I was multi tasking at suppertime, cooking, setting the table, and talking too much to Loverboy. I had my hand on the fridge door while talking, and then realized what I wanted wasn't in the fridge, so I kept talking and took two steps backwards towards the pantry unit, and our dog was laying there. Oh God, I thought, and for what seemed like an eternity, I finally fell, backwards on my back. It's amazing at how much you can think about during the tumble.
Will I hit my head? Will I break my leg? Or Kill the dog?!
Son #1 came downstairs.
He showed no sympathy. "I heard a big bang" he said, and "heard the dog running for his life."
A sore shoulder, bruised pride. Not worse than when I finally hit into a building at Mont Temblant, yelling "I can't stop" to my instructor, amongst many spectators.

Tidy Tuesday

There's a lot being said about clutter these days, and how clutter affects our well being. What the heck is clutter? When something is no longer serving you and the person you are today, it can be considered clutter.
There's many types of clutter... here are just three examples:
1. Physical Clutter: things you have
2. Time Clutter: things you do
3. Relationship Clutter: people you spend time with
Is it Physical clutter?
Here's a clutter test I found online:
Does it lift your energy or bring you joy? If not, it's clutter.
If you haven't used it in a year, it's clutter.
If you won't likely use it in the coming year either, it's clutter.
If you feel yourself hesitating when you look at it, it's clutter.
If you struggle with the decision, it's clutter.
If you're only keeping it because it was a gift, it's clutter.
If you feel yourself coming up with reasons to keep it, it's clutter.
If it's broken, or needs cleaning, and you don't want to fix it this week, then it's clutter.
If you don't even know what it is, it's clutter.
Toss, recycle, sell or donate that clutter. Remember the 27 items in a bag idea? I also read about tackling big projects by committing to handling/deciding on 5 objects at a time. Is your garage overwhelming? Basement? Closet? Don't fret. Go in and commit to 5 items at a time. It may awhile, but you'll feel good about the progress.
"If you have debt I'm willing to bet that general clutter is a problem for you too" ~~.Suze Orman

Monday's Sexual Post

Making a baby boy is the topic.
I should know how it works :) We made two.
Experts suggest suggests the “doggy style” position is best.
It's deeper and will give the "boy" sperm a head start.
And very near your ovulation is needed. And mutual orgasm is good if possible.
Make your partner wear boxers. Tight fitting underwear can lower the sperm count.
And have your partner drink a caffeinated beverage right before sex, as it will rev up those Y-sperm.
(But do refrain from having sex in Tim Horton's parking lot.)

Levon Lyrics & Alvin Tostig

Levon wears his war wound like a crown
He calls his child Jesus'
Cause he likes the name
And he sends him to the finest school in town
Levon, Levon likes his money
He makes a lot they say
Spends his days counting
In a garage by the motorway
He was born a pauper to a pawn on a Christmas day
When the New York Times said, "God is dead
And the war's begun,
Alvin' Tostig has a son today"
And he shall be Levon
And he shall be a good man
And he shall be Levon
In tradition with the family plan
And he shall be Levon
And he shall be a good man
He shall be Levon
Levon sells cartoon balloons in town
His family business thrives
Jesus blows up balloons all day
Sits on the porch swing watching them fly
And Jesus, he wants to go to Venus
Leaving Levon far behind
Take a balloon and go sailing
While Levon, Levon slowly dies.......
********
What the heck does all that mean? Well many have read lots in it. I think it's just about boredom, a father, and a son. Actually Alvin Tostig is a fictional name, Bernie Taupin says. As far as Elton's son; Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John: one could say he was born a pauper to a pawn on a Christmas Day. He was born on Christmas Day. And the NY times never did say God is Dead on December 25th. But they did in March '68.
Anyway .... Very nice song.

Week #39 Breakfast Casserole


Preheat the oven at 350F (not convection bake)
Spray or grease a 9x13 baking dish
Cube 6 to 8 bread slices and place in the dish
Add pieces of cooked bacon, ham, or sausage on top.
(It called for a pound, and I used just a bit less than 1 package of bacon. I cooked it the night before)
On top of the bacon (or meat) sprinkle 3/4 cups cheddar cheese
Beat 5 eggs with 1 3/4 cups milk and salt and pepper to taste.
Pour over it all.
Let sit 5 minutes.
Bake for 35 minutes.
Comments: Before I was done serving I heard one of the kids say yum. Loverboy has a cold, and said he couldn't taste it much. Both boys said it was good. I liked it, but found the bread part undermeath a bit bland, but then again I didn't add salt or pepper, thinking the bacon would be salty enough. We cut it into 6 large pieces, and we ate 5 and gave the dog the last piece.

Plumcot



As the picture indicates, plumcot is half plum, half apricot. I must admit, I hate plums. Just don't like that texture. But the plumcot is wayyyy better, and sweeter. It's texture is firmer. Like the plum, the softer it feels when squeezed, the sweeter it is. I liked it.

Girlfriends

I watched Mamma Mia tonight for the 8th time.
It always warms my heart.
What is better for the woman's soul than spending time with girlfriends, laughing till you cry, and being silly.
Dancing on beds, and singing into hairbrushes and soup ladles.
Modeling shocking swimsuits, and telling tales out of school.
