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

Soldiers Dancing the Cha Cha

A friend of mine showed me this video at least 4 years ago. We got the biggest kick out of it and watched it over and over dozens of times. It took me a while to find it again and it still makes me laugh and I wanted to share it here. These guys are too darn cute……

This particular video has to be in the top 5 of my “all time favorite” YouTube video’s!

John & Marsha

My brother-in-law was telling me of the new neighbors that had moved next door. He went over and introduced himself to them and chatted for a few minutes to welcome them to the neighborhood. He tells me that their names are John and Marsha. When he told me their names, I got a big old smile on my face from a memory that hadn’t found it’s way to my brain cells in a very long time.

Years ago, as a kid, my father used to listen to an album that had a hilarious comedy bit called John & Marsha. It was one of the funniest things that we listened to back in the day, so I went online today to see if I could find anything on it. I hit the Jackpot and found exactly what I was looking for. Stan Freberg was the comedian.

I immediately went to Amazon and ordered the album.

Rock N Roll Has A Slinky

Rock n Roll’s Slinky

I have enjoyed spending my Friday off of work, getting some things around the house done and quite honestly a good amount of time just chilling and spending time on my laptop, while eating up all the left-overs from the past couple of meals. I hate throwing food away, I can be a real stinker about wasting food. I’m kind of OCD in that way. But then we all have our own little unique oddities, needs and wants in this life time.

So while doing some idle YouTube surfing, I ran across a video concerning these Ernie Ball 2251 pure nickel Slinky Electric Guitar Strings that I sorta remember hearing about years ago through some friends of mine that had one of those basement or garage bands before they all got caught up in relationships, careers, health and kids. We still keep in touch, though usually via Facebook rather than jam sessions that we all had such a blast doing for those days gone by.

Anyway I thought I’d post the video here and share what I learned. Figured I’d put it on Facebook as well and share it with some of the gang. I’ll use it as my “topic of the day”.

Baby Gift Baskets For Baby Showers

It usually happens at least a couple of times a year that I get an invitation to attend a baby shower. So I try and and stock up on gifts through out the year, so that I am ready to go without having to worry about coming up with a gift at the last minute. I’m pretty good at finding good deals online, so I do most of my buying utilizing the Internet. I look for free shipping, coupon codes, and sites that accept Pay Pal for payments.

One of my favorite sites that I order Baby Gift Baskets from is at babybasketbeyond dot com. They always have great prices, rewards, promotions, along with free shipping, great customer service and they always let me use my Pay Pal account to pay for my purchases. Baby Gift Baskets are a great gift for baby showers. They are filled with all kinds of useful and cute goodies that a new mother and new baby will need and then the basket can be used in the future for other usages.

I just ordered two more of their Baby Gift Baskets for the baby showers that are being planned in late November and early December. I just noticed that they have eco- friendly products for folks that are into the organic scene!
