Looking for a married couple...

This computer-generated view depicts part of Mars at the boundary between darkness and daylight, with an area including Gale Crater beginning to catch morning light. (Photo Credit- NASA/JPL-Caltech)CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida, - A nonprofit foundation wants to recruit a man and a woman - possibly a married couple - for a bare-bones, 501-day journey to Mars and back that would start in less than five years, project organizers said on Wednesday.
The mission, expected to cost upwards of $1 billion, would be privately financed by donations and sponsorships.
The spacecraft will be bare-bones, with about 600 cubic feet (17 cubic meters) of living space available for a two-person crew. Mission planners would like to fly a man and a woman, preferably a married couple who would be compatible during a long period of isolation.
The capsule would be outfitted with a life-support system similar to the one NASA uses on the space station, which recycles air, water, urine and perspiration.

If launch occurs on January 5, 2018, the capsule would reach Mars 228 days later, loop around its far side and slingshot back toward Earth.
The return trip takes 273 days and ends with an unprecedented 31,764-mph (51,119-kph) slam into Earth's atmosphere.
Once the spaceship is on its way, there is no turning back.
"If something goes wrong, they're not coming back," MacCallum said.
The crew would spend much of their time maintaining their habitat, conducting science experiments and keeping in touch with people on Earth.

Tim Hortons Muffins

So, what's the best muffin choice you can make at Tim Hortons?

Well according to their nutritional guide the muffins with the highest total fat are the whole grain blueberry, triple chocolate, and banana nu( all have 16 grams of total fat).They have 400, 450, and 390 calories, respectively.

The other 2 whole grain muffins listed; Carrot Orange: 13 gr fat and 370 calories
and Blueberry: 15 grams total fat and 380 calories.
Wow.

 The low fat double berry muffin is the best choice with 2.5 total fat and 290 calories. Their oatmeal has close to the same nutritional values.
And their bagels have about the same values as the low fat double fruit muffin, but then again, only if you eat them dry. No butter or cream cheese.


IT'S BACK !

Yes, the AVON Soft Pink bubble bath will be in the next catalogue !  Yabadaboooo!  My sis and I were so dissappointed when it was disconitnued. But I guess we weren't the only ones discouraged.

It's back !

Cuts and scrapes

Do we cover them, or let them dry.
Studies indicate that we should cover them, and allow cells to grow and repair, rather than have them out in the open to dry and form a scab.
Scarring will likely be less.
And change the bandage daily, after washing the scrape or cut with mild soap and water.
Don't use peroxide as your parents did. It can harm the tissue.

Oh Craig

6 years have gone.
I miss you, and our chats, and your honest advice. Heck, I even miss being entertained by your grumbling at times, although I get a quick glimpse of it through your lovely daughter once in awhile.
Wish you were here to see how your children have succeeded, and how their careers have taken off.
They both have such nice partners, you would love them, as we all do.
Wish you could come to family gatherings, just one more time. We all miss your hugs and kisses, (although your son is filling your shoes just fine.) Why, he even has your place at mom's table.
And Mom, she talks to your picture every day. She even says she hears your voice. Scary eh?
And Dad? Well the loss of a son seems to have aged him so. He can barely speak your name.
They still play crib after supper, like they always did. Some things never change.
Your nephews have grown, and are taller than you were. And I see a bit of you in Jesse.
And your niece, is now a beautiful woman, learning to drive.
Little Tristan, now 7, is a delight. You'd enjoy his love of nature, and everything tough. You'd probably want to kick his butt as he is split image of your brother. Ha Ha.
I can now write about you and talk about you without crying. Well, at least I can most of the time.
That's what time has done.
It turned you into a beautiful memory.
One I cherish with all my heart.
So glad to be your sis forever.

Allergies and kissing

Experts claim you should wait 4 hours before kissing someone who has eaten a food you are allergic to. And that person should even eat something else, before considering the kiss.

Enlarge the penis naturally

The penis is the topic.
Is there a way to enlarge your penis naturally?
Well, some might think so.

I read that you can lenghten your penis using the the following method:
1. Massage your penis until you achieve semi-erection.
2. Make an okay sign with the thumb and index finger of your left hand. With this, clasp the head of your penis. Make sure that you grip it well but without causing discomfort.
3. Gently stretch the penis with this hand.
4. Now make another okay sign with the thumb and index finger of the right hand.
5. Wrap this at the base of the penis shaft. From there pull it up until you reach the head.
6. Return the grip at the base and pull your fingers up again.
7. Do these steps for about five minutes.

You can also lenghten it by losing weight.
Dr Oz once said that if you are male, and lose 35 pounds, you will gain an inch of penis lenght.

I personally find it hard to believe ( other than weight loss) that there is a way to increase penis size.
If there was a sure way, don't worry, all the men around here would be walking around with a 10 inch penis.

Chowder survey

Seafood won hands down. 62% prefer a seafood chowder.
It was a toss up, but I voted for corn, as did 25%.
Fish chowder , my definite worst, only earned 9%. It's not so bad, but I really don't like it that much. (Fish chowders are tastier when you use chicken broth in it.)
Clam was dead last with 3%.
I like a good clam chowder with baby clams.

Orgasm survey

Women reported:
41% learned to orgasm between the ages of 20 to 30
36% between 15 to 20 years old
20% were under 15 years old
and a sad 3% are still waiting.
It certainly can be self taught, and studies show the most powerful ones are brought on by ourselves. Read how here.
There is no need to shy away from our own clitoris. We are the only beings with a body part designed for no other purpose, other than to bring pleasure. I think that makes us pretty important.
Last weekend in a conversation about orgasms, the following was overheard:
" We women really only need the one orgasm during sex to be satisfied, but like dessert, I had three desserts and appreciated  them all".

Cayman Islands

Hello to the cayman Islands.
I see they have been on my blog.
Wonder if it's someone I know, as many are vacationing in wamer countries.

BINGO report

Well, not much to report from my side of the table. Mrs Boing won 3 times and the walker won once. The newphie nurse is having a bad luck week she reported.
Conversation was getting shitty; talking about colonoscopy preps, especially the "oral fleet" that was once a popular prep.
" it was just like putting a coin in the car wash machine, and pulling the high pressure trigger."

I assume that means it worked fast, and strong.

Coins and Canada

For those who have sat down and looked at their older coins with the help of the Canada and Coins website I had written about earlier this month; well I have posted a link to that website on the left.
It's a great website. Covers the value of older coins, bills, and tokens of all kinds.

Flintstone facts

The show's famous theme tune, "Meet The Flintstones", was not used until the third series. The musical theme for the first two seasons was called “Rise and Shine”.  Listen to it here.
I figured I would never recognize it, but I sure did !  

Fred and Wilma Flintstone were the first couple to be shown in bed together on prime-time television when the show first aired on ABC between 1960 and 1966. 

Monday's Post : continued

So now you have given it much thought, and determined which one sexual encounter you rate as the best, I will continue.
Last weekend I got together with a bunch of girls at White Point. Days before, one of the women emailed us a list of conversation questions. Number one was the question about the best sex .
At White Point, we shared our answers ( partners anonymous of course),and the following revelation came to be.

Our best sex was so because
  • the location was risky
  • the partner was "off limits"
  • it was very lustful, the desire was tremendous 
  • it was taboo

The BEST sex had nothing to do with how many orgasms we attained, what he looked like, the size of his penis, or the lenght of the lovemaking. We could not even recall most of these details !
In conclusion, too much emphasis is put on the actual performance. We should worry less about keeping an erection, lasting long, remaining moist, reaching an orgasm, etc.

We should likely be more adventurous and flirtatious with our partners. Desire them. Shock them.

I bet, for women, that your reasons for rating it the best, were the same as ours.
I'd love to hear your comments. Anonymous of course, if you prefer.
And I would love to hear comments from men.  What reasons do men have for rating that sex as the best?

Stuck in Lodi Again

I like that song. Listened to it a couple times yesterday on my way back from White Point.
He arrived on a Greyhound, and will be walking out if he goes, so obviously he didn't make any money in Lodi ( California ).
Think that being "stuck in Lodi"is a term that can apply to anyone who is feeling blue, bored in their town, and not getting ahead in life.
Listen to it here.

Walking after midnight survey

Such brave voters. Only 5% would not feel safe walking at 3am in their neighbourhood.
Most 59% wouldn't like it, but aren"t worried about any harm happening to them.
And 36% would surely feel safe.

The Pope's testicles








This is the chair in which the pope is checked to ensure that indeed he is a male, and he's got the balls to prove it.
~~The Pope to be would sit on the seat and the cardinals would pass by, checking the papal procession and proclaiming: ‘testiculos habet et bene pendentes’. A loose translation being: ‘testicles he has and well-hung ones’~~





I guess some woman named Joan, fooled them back in 853.
They weren't going to be fooled again, therefore introduced the  sedia stercoraria ( dung chair).
I read that she served as Pope for 2 years, 4 months and 8 days.
How did she get "discovered"?
Well she gave birth during a papal procession.
Yup, had a baby right there in the street.
She and her baby were stoned to death right then and there.

Poor Joan.

Another Leak alert ?

At the supper table, we were once more alerted with the leak alarm.
What is this ?
We've had them for almost a year, and once again it's blaring.
This one was the hot water heater that decided to start dripping.
Had just a little stream going about 15 inches by 4 wide.
Good grief !
The alarms work well.
Works better than the aging appliances.

Hotel shampoo survey (edited)

Yes, most of us 40%, do take the shampoo and conditioners from hotels.
30% said nope.
19% if they really like the product, and 1% take the shampoo only.
One lady told me of her friend who takes it, and add home uses it as a foaming hand wash refill. One bottle of shampoo and fill the bottle with water.
Another told me that she saves them and donates them in her food bank stuff.

Yogurt Spread

I can't say I have tried it, but I read an article about it.
Spreadable yogurt, a healthy alternative to cream cheese. Use it on your bagels, in your sauces, dips, and cheesecake !
2 Tablespoons of this has about half the calories, and half the fat of the regular stuff.

Love

Happy Valentine's Day!

You are so beautiful to me ... Joe Cocker



There isn't a more beautiful love song.
Such power in so few lyrics.
Such emotion in 2 and half minutes.



You are so beautiful to me
You are so beautiful to me
Can't you see
Your everything I hoped for
Your everything I need
You are so beautiful to me

Such joy and happiness you bring
Such joy and happiness you bring
Like a dream
A guiding light that shines in the night
Heavens gift to me
You are so beautiful to me


Listen to it here.
Happy valentine's Day

Valentine Survey

I got a kick out of the valentine survey.
The top 5 things we'd like to get from our partner for Valentine's Day is :
  1. Sex
  2. flowers and a kiss were tied for second place
  3. a dinner outing
  4. a card
  5. a thoughtful gift
So if you are looking to save money, you're good with the sex.
And a kiss doesn't cost a thing (unless it's at the altar).
I chose flowers.  And not preferably roses. I love the bouquets at Sobeys or Superstore. Not that I have ever gotten any, but a girl can always dream.
I usually get a good kiss, and a wish. I have gotten a card before.
My first husband always got me either flowers or a thoughtful gift. The last Valentine's Day before he passed away, I received candlesticks.
I once complained, and Loverboy said " des anglais ! Ils sont plus romantic ".

Loverboy is off the hook today, as he is fishing .

Holy Mackeral

~~Iceland’s government has substantially reduced the country’s mackerel quota for 2013. Officials  said that the annual limit would be lowered by 15 percent (to 123,182 tonnes) from the quota seen in 2012.
Steingrímur J Sigfússon said in a statement, “Iceland is taking fewer mackerel from the sea in 2013. The 15 percent reduction in the weight of our catch aligns with the recommendations from international scientific experts. Our 2013 mackerel quota continues our efforts to help preserve the mackerel stock, which is our top priority."~~
