In a recent post of mine, Momentum, doughnuts were involved. I received comments about how everything goes better with doughnuts. One comment, from My Life in Our Father's World, (http://mylifeinourfathersworld.wordpress.com/) was as follows: I’m very picky about my .. but you are right, they added some whimsy to your post And I replied: “Oooo, I … Continue reading Whimsy Doughnuts
Of course I believe in science. Like how jelly grows inside doughnuts. (Thanks darkwebdeb!) Those who have read my posts before know I like math and science. We're going to talk physics again today, and how it applies to doughnuts. No, not really. But to energy and momentum. In physics, energy is considered the measurable … Continue reading Momentum
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!
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!
It is time for another story from the ranch! Before we had the house built and running water indoors, we dug a ditch for the spring water to get to the pasture the cows were in. The pig's houses were a distance away, about 250 feet. The guys working with my husband, would take care … Continue reading Camels
Now that's a super hero, Wolverine from the Marvel Comics X-Men. For those of you who don't know the story behind the hero, here it is. James Howlett was born in Alberta, Canada, in the late 1880s, as the son of wealthy farm owners John and Elizabeth Howlett, though he is actually the illegitimate son … Continue reading Wolverine
I'm sure you can agree. Some mornings you are slower to wake up than others. Well, as I was waiting for the coffee to brew, I started my water for oatmeal. My husband suggested putting in a pat of butter to make it savory. So I did. Then the physics lesson in thermodynamics began. (I … Continue reading I’m melted butter
We are just one week away from celebrating Thanksgiving here in America. I like the idea of a reminder to celebrate thankfulness, but also realize that it is something I need to do every day, not just once a year. So I have been striving to have an attitude of gratitude in 2020, well because … Continue reading Attitude of Gratitude
I hope you are in need of a good laugh today, because boy do I have a doosie! I was reminded of this story today as it was so squishy by the chicken pens. Brace yourselves! The recipe for this soup is as follows: Take 8 feet of piled up snow, let it melt naturally … Continue reading The Chicken Poop Soup Story
We've all been there and done that. You know, mistake the lyrics of songs. I remember a commercial in 2009 from T-Mobile that had a couple in a car and the guy was singing a song by Def Leppard. He incorrectly sang the lyrics as “pour some shook up ramen.” His wife/girlfriend was able to … Continue reading What?
