Electrolux Washer and Steam Dryer – GASP!!!!!!!


I’ve been watching Kelly Ripa using  these beauties on commercials for several weeks now, so on a whim I Googled them to see how much they cost.

They showed up on eBay, of all places, for the bargain basement price of four thousand dollars.  FOUR THOUSAND DOLLARS….


And I remember when we thought Maytag was pricey!!!

Nora Roberts fans, Northern Lights is on Lifetime tonight…

Jean sent me a heads-up about this.  8pm tonight on Lifetime.  Click on the image to find out all about it…

Eye candy, a Firefox theme, Skitch and Jing…

This girly Firefox theme is perfect for spring, it’s called avante.gare.10011. 3. 1 -   here’s the link to download and install it to your Firefox browser.

And if you like the arrows and text, it’s a MAC program called Skitch.  But if you are a PC user, you can download Jing.  Hooterville uses it, and it’s similar to Skitch.  Word on the street that Skitch is now available for Windows, but so far I’ve not been able to find  download.  Here’s the link for the Jing download, though…

What is it about Twitter?

Let’s talk about Twitter this morning.  Apparently, I’m the only chirper in my group of friends.  I’ve yet to find anybody else that posts their random thoughts.  Wonder why that is? 

I was a Twitterer long before it became tres chic.  It seems like it’s the buzzword this spring.  Turn on your favorite talk show, or news show, local as well as national, and that’s all you hear.  What is it about this silly little application that only lets you post 140 characters that has such broad appeal?  It’s fun, it really is.  It’s like a tiny little peek into someone’s day.  Since my days are mostly uneventful, you would think I would have a difficult time tweeting.  But oh no, motor mouth here always has something stupid to say.

So I’ll go on typing out senseless 140 word entries, like the rest of the world.  But I’m a bit smug about it, I must admit, because for once in my life I was ahead of the pack.  By a long shot, too I might add.  I’ve had Twitter on The Dish several times over the past couple of years.  I would put it in the sidebar, then revamp the site, take it off for awhile, come back to it.  I’m sure I’ll grow tired of it again, you are all most assuredly tired of it already, but for now it’s working.  I’m a part of the Twitter herd, but I am starting to get really weary of people talking about it.  It will be old news soon, the “in” crowd will go onto something else, and who knows what 'I’ll come up with next, no doubt there will be something that will ring my chimes…

Is it possible to get spring fever at 59?

I do believe it is, and I think I have it!  Gawjus weather in Heavensville, I plopped some pansies in the ground, contemplated planting onions, but didn’t get around to it.  Lindsay leaves tomorrow, back to routine, back to more coherent blogging, well maybe….

Cya round a donut….  tomorrow…

It’s that time of year…. peas by St. Paddy’s Day, that’s what Mother always told me.  Well, we didn’t plant peas yesterday but we did rake and sweep and take multiple trash bags full of debris from the patio. 

I, do however, have some onions to plant.  Not the same, but when spring is in the air I just want to dig in the dirt.

Old habits die hard…

I’m running a little late with my blog tonight…

Dilly is here for a couple of days.  We had a great day, hubby cleaned the patio, her friend Shawna visited this afternoon, they sat on the patio and girl talked, nothing cuter than two young women having quality time….

We had an awesome veggie, artichoke pizza at Deerhead.  Hubby took us to dinner, tomorrow we’re having a late lunch with Shawna, her little girl Bailey and Angie at Panera.  It’s a girl’s week all around….

So sweet…

Here I sit, feeding the M&M’s bites of green beans, which they love, by the way.  I feed Mollie a bite, then Maggie, always  giving each one their turn.  And they never try to eat each other’s food, even though their little heads are touching as they stand side by side, waiting for me to give them a morsel.  So many dogs would try and bully their way to getting more than their share, but not the girls.  People could learn a lot from them…

If I only had a brain, what would I do, what would I do???

I really thought today was St. Paddy’s Day.  I got my little Irish Yorkie on The Dish first thing this morning.  It wasn’t until early afternoon that I realized that the 17th is tomorrow.

Well you’ll just have to scroll down and look at the dog, I’m not going to be reposting him tomorrow!

  Geez Louise…

Purina Diet…it really works…

Yesterday I was buying 2  large bags of Purina Dog Chow at Wal Mart, for my dogs.  I was about to check out when a woman behind me asked if I had a dog. What did she think, that I had an elephant?  Since I had little else to do, on impulse, I told her that no, I didn’t have a dog, and that I was starting Purina Diet again, although I probably shouldn’t because I ended up in the hospital last time.  On the bright side though, I’d lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of every hole in my body and IVs in both arms. 

I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way that it works is to load your pockets with Purina nuggets and simple eat one or two every time you feel hungry and that the food is nutritionally complete so I was going to try it again. ( I have to mention here that practically everyone in the line was enthralled with my story by now.)

Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care because the dog food had poisoned me. I told her no; I had stopped in the middle of the parking lot to lick my butt and a car hit me.

I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack, he was laughing so hard!

WAL-MART won’t let me shop there anymore.

Personality vs. Functionality…

There is nothing I like more than a whimsical kitchen that just brims with personality.  I’m a huge fan of red appliances, french pigs, honey pots, all the fun things that make you smile when you walk into my kitchen.

But I’ve been transitioning toward functionality lately.  I’m tired of hauling out essential tools from underneath the counter to use that could easily be on top of my counter instead of all the things sitting there, just loaded with “personality,” that do nothing but bring me pleasure.

I walked to the garage earlier this week, and hubby had put a great cutting board on Milly, to haul to the trash.  I never used it, and it was just taking up space, so he was going to get rid of it.

It’s a really big cutting board, made of hardwood, that sets on stainless casters, it’s practically new and it’s wonderful, but it’s big so I wasn’t using it because I didn’t have the counter space.  So instead of letting him get rid of it, I went into the kitchen, cleaned off a whole area of personality and plopped down the functionality friendly cutting board, and ya know what.  I’m enjoying is so much more than I ever did that collection of vinegar bottles that I never used, and the hammered copper bowl, they were just taking up space and not used for anything.  They were there because they looked good, well to me at least they did.

I’m getting pretty smart in my old(er) age, a few years ago I wouldn’t have dreamt of giving up counter space for something so practical, when it could have been so “cute.”  Wisdom comes with age, huh…

I’m sure my family is proud of me, the boys complain every time they are home that there is no room to work!  Well, they have a nice space carved out right by the sink now, where they can prepare me meals, while I perch on a bar stool and supervise.  That’s another thing I’ve learned in my old(er) age, sit back and let them do it.  Works for me…

This bear pole dancing is so funny!
