Memorial Day

They say that a lot more people are going to be on the road this year for the Memorial Day holiday weekend. It seems that people have cut back these past couple of years so much that they feel that they need and deserve this long weekend and are going for it like it’s now or never. Wish I had plans to do something fun and exciting, but it’s not in this year’s cards for this gal.

Never Forget

2016 Memorial Day

The Three C’s

Makes sense to me! Think about this:

1. Cows

2. The Constitution

3. The Ten Commandments

COWS

Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that during the mad cow epidemic our government could track a single cow, born in Canada almost three years ago, right to the stall where she slept in the state of Washington? And, they tracked her calves to their stalls.. But they are unable to locate 11 million illegal aliens wandering around our country. Maybe we should give each of them a cow..

THE CONSTITUTION

They keep talking about drafting a Constitution for Iraq … Why don’t we just give them ours? It was written by a lot of really smart guys, it has worked for over 200 years, and we’re not using it anymore.

THE 10 COMMANDMENTS

The real reason that we can’t have the Ten Commandments posted in a courthouse or Congress is this — you cannot post ‘Thou Shalt Not Steal’ ‘Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery’ and ‘Thou Shall Not Lie’ in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians …. it creates a hostile work environment.

Bottled Water

More and more people are drinking bottled water, which is a good thing. The bad thing is that more and more people are just tossing the empty bottles into the trash or worse yet, littering our Mother Earth with the empties. It doesn’t take much effort to put the empties into a recycling bin people!

way too many bottles

Please Recycle!

Slides For A Noiseless and Easy Opening Pantry

One day it would be nice to have the kitchen remodeled. My mother would never have dreamed of asking for a newer kitchen, but I have no problem what-so-ever. In my house things are run a whole lot different than the house that I grew up in.

My mother was a stay-at-home mom and did all the things that the woman was expected to do, while my father working 40 hours a week and during his spare time he was either in the garage, in front of the T.V. or taking a nap on the couch.

What I wouldn’t do for some of the nicer things that have come on the market for today’s kitchens. The first thing on my list would be to switch from an electric range to gas, a newer more energy efficient refrigerator and new slides for pantry and other drawers and cabinets, My BFF had all new cabinets installed in her kitchen a couple of years ago and my favorite feature of all were the slides that made them all open and close with such ease and with no noise! What a great concept.

Each year when I am doing my taxes I think to myself that I should really commit and hire a contractor to re do the kitchen, but then life seems to always get in the way in the month of May! And then there is the summer months that follow……..

quiet and easy

Today’s Trade Shows

Haven’t been to a trade show in many, many years. I used to try and attend several of them a year but I just haven’t had the opportunity as of late. A few days back a good lady friend of mine called and asked me to go to one with her next Saturday I have agreed to go and help her out and look forward to spending some time with her and hopefully finding this trade show of interest.

One good thing about trade shows is that they are normally held inside, so the weather is never much of an issue and the show goes on rain or shine, hot or cold. Trade shows are by far a great way to learn about different businesses and their services, products and opportunities. They have come a long way since the 90’s when they started coming around.
