Cameron Diaz Body Book




This quote alone from People’s website makes this book a must read for me.  Well said, Cameron!

"I don't want to look like I did when I was 25," the actress, 41, tells PEOPLE. "I like the way that I look now better than when I was 25. I can't help that other people may be uncomfortable with that, but that's not my responsibility to make them feel okay with the fact that I'm getting older. I'm okay with it. I like it." 

"There's no such thing as anti-aging," Diaz, 41, tells PEOPLE. "There's no such thing as turning back the hands of time, and it makes me crazy that we live in a society where that's sold to women – that we're supposed to believe that if we're getting older, we've failed somehow, that we have failed by not staying young."

The Vermont Country Store


I’m such a fan of The Vermont Country Store, it’s just so nostalgic, looking at their catalog is like a trip down memory lane.  I’ve talked about the store and linked to it before, but today I’ve got a video for all of you, this is a Martha Stewart one, and if you watch this and want to see more, just search YouTube for "Vermont Country Store," there are several to choose from, or just get caught up in the moment like me and watch them all...

It’s such so special, my daughter-in-law, Deanna is a fan as well. we both just drool over the vintage items.  Enjoy the video, and if you click here, you can request a catalog. Here’s a link to their website, they’re on Facebook, too.

This young man lost 130 lbs. and surprised parents, AWESOME video!



Projection Clocks, they're awesome!


For those of you who know my husband, you are familiar with all of his tag sale finds.  The man is a picker, he doesn’t drag in atrocious items like a lot of men do, he has this uncanny ability to find little gems, as my friends and family well know.   This past summer he brought home this clock radio, and I just didn’t get why he would buy it.  First of all it was ugly, it looked like a box with this bullet looking thing on the end of it, but he said to just trust him that this was a goodie.
So that evening he went into the bedroom, plugged this contraption into the wall, fiddled with the bullet thingie and I still wasn’t buying it.  But then the turned out the lights and voila, the current time projected on the wall in large letters.  Okay, I still wasn’t convinced but quickly changed my mind.  I wake up  gadzillion times during the night, always looking at the clock to see what time it is, and with the time projected on the wall, no more raising my head to look at the time, no more squinting my eyes at the clock, I can just barely open one eye, see what time it is and go back to sleep.   Sounds hokey doesn’t it?  Well, it’s not trust me.  Later in the summer when we were in Nashville, LC and John went to a tag sale and there was another one of those clocks, so LC insisted that John needed it.  He and Deanna were quickly hooked as well, they projected their time on the ceiling.  It was a great idea.  But… 
Our clock died, and apparently so did theirs.  Hubby couldn’t find a new battery for it locally, so he bought one on Amazon, it arrived yesterday and it didn’t fix the clock.  Yours truly is in a tizzy, partly because I’ve been in the house for days and days because of the weather, and disappointed that the battery didn’t fix the big bullet contraption, so he found this one on eBay yesterday.  It has mixed reviews, over 2,000 of them, mostly good, but some bad, so I’ll see how it works out for me.  One of the downsides that people complain about is that the display is too bright, but hey, I’m desperate.  And if it is too bright there is a filter you can buy that makes the color softer.
So it’s on the way to Heavensville this morning via Amazon Prime for only $29,  but I’m not a happy camper because as of the first of the year Amazon is now charging us tax.   Grrrrr, we had a good thing for years, I shouldn’t complain, it still beats trudging through the stores looking for nonexistent items.
And I’m hopefully optimistic that this new clock will be as good as my bullet contraption, at least it looks better, I had to hide my old one behind some books on the dresser, it was so ugly.
Are you intrigued?  Probably not, this is one of those things you have to see up close and personal to appreciate.  But of course I’ll give you the link just in case you would like to barely open one eye in the middle of the night to see the time.  It’s a great little nightlight, too.
I’ll update you later as to if this is a hit or a miss  ~ Jan

Frozen Football Fans



Ok, I’m not a football fan, the only thing more stupid, in my opinion,  than a bunch of men jumping on top of each other in an attempt to retrieve a ball, is the reaction at home of the armchair quarterbacks who just go bat shit crazy.  But what’s even crazier is this game tonight in Minnesota.

I saw pictures of fans filing into the stadium, 80,000 people, lots of old people, all bundled up, miserably trudging to their snow covered seats in sub-zero temps. They are gonna sit down and their butts will melt that snow, they are freeze their backsides.  Stoopid…...

Am I the strange one, the person who doesn’t get the total obsession with football?  Guys that can barely form a coherent sentence are paid millions and millions of dollars to get their bodies pummeled every week and end up even dumber than they were before they started playing.  Duh...

Just don’t get it, I know a lot of you do, but I . Just . Don’t . Get . it !

Today's the day...

It’s a new year, time to totally redo the Daily Dish from the ground up.  I’ve been limping along for months now, just quickly slapping up new headers, my margins aren’t aligned, I have issues, I can do better!  It’s time to totally revamp!  What better time than this, it’s miserable outside, frigid arctic air moving in, the fireplace is on, smooth jazz is playing in the background and  I’m in design mode.

Soon you will click on The Diah and it will look totally different.  Will you like it?  If you like whimsy you will, if you don’t, meh….

Back to the drawing board, catch ya later…. ~ jan
