A friend of mine sent me this website...I went and checked it out and it seems like a great idea to me. It only took me a is free and they do not ask for any personal information.

Here is what my friend wrote:

It takes longer to chose which card to send than it does to actually send it.

This is worth doing!

If you go to this web site, you can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will print it and it will be sent to a soldier that is currently serving in Iraq You can't pick out who gets it, but it will go to some member of the armed services.

I've been singing along non-stop since Wednesday....I can't wait for Act Three on Saturday.

Destroying the status quo because the status is...not...quo...

I had my first turtle rescue of the year today!

(Pleased that I can still possibly move faster than a turtle. Of course I don't know that for sure as he ducked into his shell as I approached.)

This is one of the chipmunks that has been frolicking in my front yard. I was afraid the little fellows had abandoned the area because Zoe had killed one. (I assume it was Zoe...she has been getting out lately.)

I was quite pleased to see this little guy stuffing his face yesterday. I couldn't get too close and he would never "pose" so I could get his stripes but since I promised [profile] mysterylady36 a picture I thought this would do. Doesn't he remind you of Marlon Brando?

Puppy update: My uncle may have found the big guy a home. Fingers crossed!

Fuzzy time!

I don't know if you read the comic strip 'Get Fuzzy' but if you don't you should check it out this week. The strip is about a sweet but clueless dog, a cat with attitude and their long suffering owner. On Tuesday the strip began a run featuring Satchel's friend Shakespug and it has been cracking me up. Each strip is funny by itself but start on Tuesday to get the full effect. Tuesday's strip )

The last panel of Wednesday's strip would make an excellent icon and Friday's strip is worth printing out for the fridge....

I saw this on a car as I was driving through town today and it made me laugh. All is not lost.

Study: Chocolate may boost brain power

Stimulating effects might increase mental performance

NEW YORK (Reuters) -- Chocolate lovers rejoice. A new study hints that eating milk chocolate may boost brain function.

"Chocolate contains many substances that act as stimulants, such as theobromine, phenethylamine, and caffeine," Dr. Bryan Raudenbush from Wheeling Jesuit University in West Virginia noted in comments to Reuters Health.

"These substances by themselves have previously been found to increase alertness and attention and what we have found is that by consuming chocolate you can get the stimulating effects, which then lead to increased mental performance."

I love Target. It may be one of the few generic type of stores that can consistently make me giggle out loud. At the front door they have an area they call the "One Spot." It's full of stuff for sale for $1. Today as I went by I noticed they had napkin rings with a plastic Statue of Liberty on them. (Your choice of white or black plastic.) That was enough to make me laugh but then I notice the bunch of "matching" accessories. Little party sticks for 'hors d'oeuvres' that had the S.o.L. on it as well as the Eiffel Tower. Really! There was also a S.o.L. & E.T. salt & pepper shaker.

As I went through the store I cut down the candle aisle where, I swear, they had a tea light chicken. Honest! It was a ceramic chicken with holes in it the size of your finger, not just a couple but several. Where the chicken's tale should be was a large opening where you would put the candle in. Looking at that chicken made me laugh--lucky for me I was alone in the aisle.

When I headed out of Target I got in the car where I performed car karaoke to a Prince song, complete with dance moves. (Don't worry, I always keep one hand on the wheel when I car dance.)

Yeah, I do feel silly this afternoon. Why do ya ask?

I had a pretty decent weekend. We went into town Saturday for lunch and then stopped in at Barnes and Nobles where a friend of mine was doing a book signing. She did a nice little book with photographs and stories about her family and their journey from Italy to Springfield Missouri.

The mister and I also played a marathon game of 'Risk' Saturday night/Sunday morning. We started about nine pm Saturday and finished up at about two am on Sunday. (We had no idea it was getting so late!) I'm happy to report that after MrAlrescate's 'Yellow Peril' had almost taken over the world my 'Red Meanies' stuck to their Master Plan and swept through the world. I'm sure I'll be a fairly benevolent dictator. *grin* After sleeping in as late as the dogs would allow we got up and had a nice breakfast and I was able to settle in with a good book.

It's a shame Monday had to come so soon but the good news is I only have a couple more days before I get to go blow glass!

Wow. What a sight. I was coming into town to join my husband and some friends at a bar to watch the football game. As I pulled up to one of the main intersections in town I notice a police car with its lights flashing at one side of the intersection and one at the other side. As I watched both police cars blocked the intersection. One of the policemen came over to tell me that the intersection would be closed for at least ten minutes for a parade.

I called my husband to tell him I was going to be awhile and he told me it was probably the 'Toys for Tots' parade. As he said this I heard the rumble of motorcycles. I don't think you have lived until you have seen a motorcycle driven by Santa with a Marine in full dress uniform riding behind him. I don't know how many motorcycles there were but there had to be hundreds. They all had toys strapped to the motorcycles...lots of stuffed animals riding on the sissy bar (one had Snoopy with his ears flapping in the wind). Many of the bikers had santa hats on their helmets, some had reindeer antlers and others had Christmas lights. One of the funniest things was a guy on a Harley with a death face mask and a huge stuffed dogs riding behind him.

What an impressive sight. I'm glad I got caught in traffic.

I had a few minutes at lunch time to release a book at a local store called the 'Cosmic Fish.' I've gotten a couple journal entries from this location which is a sort of tame head shop. (Well the part I saw was tame.) In my last release note I commented that I hadn't been in the store and the finder (who worked there) said that I should come in some time. Since I had the time I wandered around part of the store...I didn't have time to check out the 'Over 18 Only' section. As I entered one of the first things I saw was lip balm from a company called 'The Merry Hempsters.' This is lip balm made with hemp oil. I'm pretty fond of hemp products and I had never seen 'flavored' hemp lip balm before. I picked up the 'tangerine' flavor.

As I went further in the store I smelled something wonderful. It was their incense section. All the scents smelled delicious so I wasn't sure if any certain one was tickling my fancy but I bought a couple of the jasmine cones. They are sealed in a plastic ziploc and I can still smell them. It is quite a lovely smell.

The tangerine hemp balm is also wonderful.

I'm a happy little hempster now!
