This isn't exactly what happens in our house...

Poor LC spends his days looking for things I've misplaced. The man never loses anything.  I just don't understand why not...

The Queen of Versailles, Excess like you've never seen before...

 

This show literally had my mouth hanging open.  It's a documentary that was on Bravo earlier this year and I had taped it.  I was cleaning out my queue last night, found it and LC and I thought it would be interesting to watch.  Well, it certainly is, I've never seen so much excess and flamboyance in my entire life.   These people have no grip on reality, none!

You can find it on Netflix Instant or Hulu Plus, if you have some free time, you might want to give this a go, it's definitely not boring.

After it was over, I Googled to see what happened since it filmed, as the show ended,  their 90,000 square foot house, the largest in America, was going into foreclosure.  Looks like their back on top of the heap, the bills are paid and construction is ongoing.  Amazing, simply amazing...

Happy 4th!!!!

July 4th,  a day for picnics, family, friends, fireworks and sunny, hot weather.  

But not this year, it's currently 72°, with isolated thunderstorms predicted for Heavensville.  Hubby and I are "home alone" this year, so we're skipping the fireworks, just grilling a steak, tossing a salad and then going to the movie.

Wherever your travels take you this weekend, stay safe, enjoy and make it memorable.  ~ Jan

Talking Ben

 

Precious little Ben is almost eleven months old now and obviously has a lot to talk about.  Videos like this will be such a good memory for him some day, totally priceless...

Ladies Night, Mary Kay Andrews

This is the best read of the summer, at least so far.  I'm a huge fan of Mary Kay Andrews and have been for years.  I started with Savannah Blue and Savannah Breeze, enjoyed her hilarious stories so much that I went on to read all of her books.   I introduced them to my daughter-in-law, Deanna, and she has read them all, too.  Her latest, Ladies Night is such a trip, and of course since it's about a blogger, it's especially interesting to yours truly.

So if you're looking for easy, breezy this summer, take this for a spin, you won't be disappointed.

Rising media star and lifestyle blogger Grace Stanton’s own life gets torpedoed after she drives her cheating husband’s pricey sports car straight into the family swimming pool in a fit of anger. Soon she’s locked out of her own palatial home, checking account, and blog, forced to move in with her widowed mother who lives above, and owns, The Sandbar, a rundown beach bar. Attending court-mandated weekly “divorce recovery” therapy sessions with a group of three other women—marital misfits whose only common denominator is betrayal—Grace and the women soon ditch their therapist and move their Wednesday “Ladies’ Night” sessions to The Sandbar. They begin to help each other, walking a fine line between revenge and justice, as each one finds closure in ways previously unimagined. Can Grace figure out a new way home and how strong she needs to be to get there? Told with Mary Kay Andrews’s unique blend of humor, heart, and unpredictable plot twists,Ladies’ Night will have you raising a glass and cheering these characters on.

So how many pictures are on YOUR hard drive!!!!

Outta control doesn't begin  to cover it.  I take pictures, thousands of pictures, and they are only filed by date in folders on my hard drive.  At least  they are backed up to an external drive, but that's as good as it gets.   They are all jumbled together, they are so mixed up that trying to do any kind of organization is beyond me.  I keep "hoping" that someone will eventually come up with a program that will help filter them.  But i have no tags, nada nothing, so I'm pretty much SIL!

Things are so bad that I can't even try out the new Instagram video feature on my iPhone.  I was talking to my buddy V awhile ago, she was asking why I hadn't done any video, well it's because there is no room on my phone and now I have to make yet another folder and move all my iPhone pictures, all 1,750+ of them to my hard drive.  My organizational skills or lack thereof sometimes is mind boggling.

Just whining.  That is all….
