Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:-Knowing when to come in out of the rain; - Why the early bird gets the worm;- Life isn't always fair; - And maybe it was my fault. Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies, don't spend more than you can earn and adults, not children, are in charge. His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition. Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion. Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims. Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault. Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement. Common Sense was preceded in death, by his parents, Truth and Trust, by his wife Discretion, his daughter Responsibility, and his son, Reason. He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights,I Want It Now,Someone Else Is To Blame,I'm A Victim.Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone.

My Sad Spartan Friend

My Sparty friend know...the one I compete with every year for the Michigan/Michigan State battle(her car last year on top), is looking for her runaway Farty Sparty Gnome. It seems he has run away from home and heading for Ann Arbor MI.

Great Foundation Finds

As a woman closing in on the big 5-0, with large pores, dry skin, dark circles and those annoying fine wrinkles(OMG will the list EVER end?), I am constantly trying new foundations. The ones available to everyone at drugstores are the ones I mostly try. They are in most women's budgets.

I have two new ones that I really like! I use them together. The first is Revlon PhotoReady foundation(spf 20). It really reduces my pores. It doesn't feel heavy at all, yet gives great coverage, even for dark under eye circles:) It also has a very sanitary, easy to control pump.

Then I usually follow with a loose powder to set the foundation. However....I am now using ANOTHER foundation for this job. It is Revlon ColorStay Aqua(spf 13). A mineral foundation. It has a self contained brush in the lid, very sanitary. It also has sparklies for a luminescent look. And you really feel the "aqua" part when you apply it. You don't need much if you use it to finish your foundation.

This combination seems to last all day. However, summer is around the corner, and then we will have the sweat test. I have had good luck in the summer with ColorStay products, so I am confident this one will be just fine.

Aging sucks! But thanks to Revlon we can fool some people! LOL!! With everything on the market and all the technology, we can cover and shrink 10 years away!!! When that doesn't work...accessorize!!! Take the focus away from you with clothes and jewelry!!!LOL!!!!


I want to share another awesome discovery with everyone! Sprayaway Glass Cleaner!!! Wow is this stuff great!

I have been using Invisible Glass foam(in most automotive departments and stores). Don't get me wrong..that is good too. But Sprayaway is better!! I wanted something to keep in the car. I saw this by the Windex, it was the same price, so I tried it. AMAZING! Plus it is a little cheaper than Invisible Glass.
I then Googled it and found the reviews for it on Amazon. Everyone agrees with me!

Oh Sprayaway....where have you been my whole life?!
