The perfect gift for romantic lovebirds!!!

I found this very adorable unimitten for all the lovebirds, and yes they are everywhere.
I envision an elderly couple, married about 60 years, taking a leisurely stroll on a beautiful fall afternoon.
Or maybe empty nesters that walk everyday to stay healthy. Even in the winter.
If you know that one couple that ALWAYS hold hands this would be the perfect gift. I can just imagine the smiles and warm feelings this adorable mitten would bring. Especially to people passing by.

I Love My Cats, REALLY I Do!

As I'm sitting here typing on this blog-my wonderful Lotto has decided it is time to mess with mama! He's sitting right next to me, right now. We're talking about a cat that can open drawers and doors. Not big drawers, those plastic organizer ones. He's taken an eyelash curler, from one in the bathroom, and played with it. He has also taken my BC pills out to bat around. I was glad we didn't have company!!
Right now he's going after pens, tools, bills(he can keep those!) He's trying to take my glasses off my face(he also does that at night when I'm reading in bed). Oh, now the headphones!! Little shit's purring the whole time!!!!
He gets in these moods once in awhile. Don't tell me he's doing it for attention, he gets lots of that!
Daddy's just laughing-I don't see what is so funny.
Damn it Lotto!
Oh, ok, kissy kissy. I love you too. Sorry mama yelled at ya.

For the last couple years I have been in love with fingerless gloves. I wear them all winter. They can be layered with gloves for extra warmth OR style.
Well I also love alpacas and their wool(see my earlier post). I found an Etsy shop that offers fingerless gloves in an alpaca wool blend. The prices are good also.

Another Household Tip

I received this in my email-pretty interesting....JW

Peroxide VS Bleach

This was written by Becky Ransey of Indiana (a doctor's wife), and I want to share it with you. She was over recently for coffee and smelled the bleach I was using to clean my toilet and counter tops. This is what she told me:

"I would like to tell you of the benefits of thatPlain little ole bottle of 3% peroxide you can get for under $1.00 at any drug store. What does bleach cost? My husband has been in the medical field for over 36 years, and most doctors don't tell you about peroxide."Have you ever smelled bleach in a doctor's office? NO!!! Why? Because it smells, and it is not healthy! Ask the nurses who work in the doctor's offices, and ask them if they use bleach at home. They are wiser and know better!"Did you also know bleach was invented in the late 40's? It's chlorine, folks! And it was used to kill our troops.

"Peroxide was invented during WWI. It was used to save and help cleanse the needs of our troops and hospitals. Please think about this:
1. Take one capful (the little white cap that comes with the bottle) and hold in your mouth for 10 minutes daily, then spit it out. (I do it when I bathe.) No more canker sores, and your teeth will be whiter without expensive pastes. Use it instead of mouthwash.
2. Let your toothbrushes soak in a cup of peroxide to keep them free of germs.
3. Clean your counters and table tops with peroxide to kill germs and leave a fresh smell. Simply put a little on your dishrag when you wipe, or spray it on the counters.
4. After rinsing off your wooden cutting board, pour peroxide on it to kill salmonella and other bacteria..
5. I had fungus on my feet for years until I sprayed a 50/50 mixture of peroxide and water on them (especially the toes) every night and let dry.
6. Soak any infections or cuts in 3% peroxide for five to ten minutes several times a day. My husband has seen gangrene that would not heal with any medicine but was healed by soaking in peroxide.
7. Fill a spray bottle with a 50/50 mixture of peroxide and water and keep it in every bathroom to disinfect without harming your septic system like bleach or most other disinfectants will.
8. Tilt your head back and spray into nostrils with your 50/50 mixture whenever you have a cold, plugged sinus. It will bubble and help to kill the bacteria. Hold for a few minutes, and then blow your nose into a tissue.
9. If you have a terrible toothache and cannot get to a dentist right away, put a capful of 3% peroxide into your mouth and hold it for ten minutes several times a day. The pain will lessen greatly.
10. Put half a bottle of peroxide in your bathTo help rid boils, fungus, or other skin infections.
11. You can also add a cup of peroxide instead of bleach to a load of whites in your laundry to whiten them. If there is blood on clothing, pour it directly on the soiled spot. Let it sit for a minute, then rub it and rinse with cold water. Repeat if necessary.
12. I use peroxide to clean my mirrors. There is no smearing, which is why I love it so much for this.
"I could go on and on. It is a little brown bottle no home should be without! "With prices of most necessities rising, I'm glad there's a way to save tons of money in such a simple, healthy manner!"This information really woke me up. I hope you gain something from it, too.Pass this on .. And on .... And on!

Seda's First Big Public Walk

We took Rebee and Seda for a real long walk on the Trailway in Flushing.
It's beautiful this time of year!!
It was Seda's first long public walk. Started out kinda bad but she ended up settling down. We came across about 30 other dogs, joggers, walkers and bikers. No problems!! I was very happy with her. Reb's been there alot. She's never a problem. I was more worried about her getting worn out because of her age but she proved mom wrong. She still had energy when we were done. I, on the other hand, found out I am out of shape!!!


I feel like I'm in the minority when it comes to Farmville. EVERY time I go to my personal facebook page, someone has done something in FARMVILLE!!! I think it's a cult. I really do. I REFUSE to get sucked in!!!!!

Scam Alert!!!

I got an official looking letter today. I am including copies so you know what to look for(above,click for larger view).
Researched the NAPW and found interesting things! I am also including a link to one of them
According to this website-once you return the card-someone calls you trying to sell you a membership. They get really pushy trying to get your cc number.

It has a postage paid card to fill out and return. Welllll-I'm gonna!!! I wrote scam on all the lines and I AM returning it! LOL!!!!

We need bigger uncluttered checkouts!

These big box stores need to get bigger checkout counters!! Just got home from Dollar xxxx and the MAIN THING I went there for was not in my bag!!!!! Four pair of reading glasses on the counter and the cashier totally missed them because of all the junk they have sitting there. These things are small enough-they don't need to put impulse purchase items there. Everyone that walks in there makes impulse purchases anyway! We as customers should not have to do their job. We are busy getting our money/debit cards out and figuring out which way to swipe it!
Just had to vent!!!
Man, those glasses were so cute too!
I still love Dollar xxxx though!!

Detroit Lions

One thing I really want to see in my lifetime is the Detroit Lions win the Super Bowl.
I'm thinking I may not live long enough!!!!!!

Good Times!! GO BLUE!

We had a little fun at work this week do to the Michigan-Michigan State game this weekend. I'm true blue and Karen is a Sparty. We tried to one up each other all week! I put GO BLUE!! as the screen saver on the computer she uses. I put a jersey shaped bottle cozy on her back window wiper blade(she drove all around with it on there!LOL). I sent someone to tape a sign on her back that said GO BLUE! Had her for a couple minutes until another Sparty told her it was there!! She put a donut in front of me with green frosting and a big white S! She called my extension CONSTANTLY blaring the State fight song!
We laughed so hard even when one of our evil attempts failed!
I'm looking forward to April Fools Day!! She didn't work there last year-and I hold the record with 22 people I got last year. And YES! I keep score!
Monday morning could be VERY interesting!
GO BLUE!!!!!
