Boy that just irks me! Watching old Westerns and when the bad guys come up to the cabin, the good guys inside almost always break the window before shooting. Is it so hard to open the window first, then shoot? Do you know how hard it must have been to get windows replaced in the … Continue reading Windows
I've had enough of your attitude young man! You are in need of a nap and a time out! To which satan replies, “No, I don't wanna take a nap! You're not the boss of me!” (What a little crybaby whiner-pants he is.) I tell him, “Yes, as a matter of fact, I am the … Continue reading You’re not the boss of me!
I love finding treasures. I never know what I'll find when I go to the thrift store. I bought some books, and when I got home and was putting them on my bookshelf, a piece of paper fell out of one of them. It is a story of finding the best treasure ever. The Story … Continue reading Treasures
It really works! When someone begins a political rant slamming people, I just begin to sing. Not just any song, but I have two specific songs that are easy to remember and can play over and over in the back of my mind while I'm doing other tasks. I remember a quote I heard once … Continue reading Puppy Love
There are advantages to being self-employed. I as the employee (me) never have to waste time coming up with reasons (excuses, lies, whoppers) to tell my boss (also me) why I can't make it in to work. (I'm a mean boss. I never let myself get away with anything!) I found some real whoppers on … Continue reading What a whopper!
We have a little sign that we got when we bought some overstuffed chairs years ago. It says, “I'm a recliner!” Since then we have made it a game to hide it where the other person will find it and get a laugh. The best one was when my husband put it on the under … Continue reading Pack animal
I was stopped yesterday by three people in my town with a population of approx. 7500 souls. These three people were running around like chickens with their heads cut off. Defined it is someone who runs around in a crazy, frenzied manner. Scientifically speaking, (this might get a bit graphic) after you decapitate the chicken, … Continue reading Probabilities
When I got home from work tonight, I began unloading the dishwasher. Sometimes mindless tasks calm me down. I've been agitated the last few days over the political unrest in America. I am taken aback by the hatred I see and hear. It can be overwhelming. So as I was taking out an agatized wood … Continue reading Agatized
I remember when I had to suffer through this. New Math. It was taught during the 1950's—1970's. It was supposed to be a dramatic change in the way math was taught, emphasizing “discovery learning.” Students worked in groups to invent theories about the problems posed in the textbooks. The goal was get past children only … Continue reading New Math
This idea is genius! I don't know why I didn't think of it sooner. Maybe you've heard of carbon offsets. A carbon offset, sometimes called a carbon credit, refers to paying someone else to reduce their carbon emissions or increase their carbon sequestration (as in by planting trees) in order to offset your own carbon … Continue reading I’m going to make Millions!
