Glori - have not heard from you in a while. I happened to see your thread and wanted to stop by and see what you have been up to.
Done any good cooking lately? I miss your recipe postings.
sad news, we think that jj went to that great cornfield in the sky. She talked about having a top secret thing and that she was really tried. Anyway, her last post was Nov 2013.
Come stop by the cornfield when you get time. Don just had an operation and is home from the hospital and is doing ok.
Good to stay in touch with friends

Happy Valentines Day!!!! Pard, goldieolds, howard and all my great buddies!!!

I just saw this when I went to check a forum to post quickly, my life has been so up and down! On DEc. 27th, 2013 , my Housemate broke his ankle really severely., has had 3 operations and the 4th will be on Monday for skin grafting, that is the most recent events , last year had many more downs than ups and grabbed up all my time!
Hopefully this month will wrap up the downs and bring all ups with the arrival of hopefully spring as I have severe cabin fever!
Wishing you all a Tremendous evening and I will stop by as soon as possible again!

Way, way too cold for garden parties here. You can't even see the gardens under all the snow. And with temps below zero and windchill temps in the -20º range, even the thought makes me shiver.

Happy Hard Drive, gs!

Evening, bigginTX!

Tomorrow is, "High Five" day! Gimme a high five. As a matter of fact, give everyone you see a High Five!

The "High Five" is a celebratory slapping of hands atop raised arms. It's been a standard for celebration of sporting victories, special event, competitions and many other activities for decades.

It's fun, and easy to celebrate this special day. Give a High Five to everyone you see. This includes friends, family, passersby, and total strangers. The more high fives you give, the better.

BTW: It's okay to give a "Low Five" today. But, only after you've given the "High Five".

On this day in history in 1492, a contract was signed by Christopher Columbus and a representative of Spain's King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, giving Columbus a commission to seek a westward ocean passage to Asia.

Columbus is credited with discovering The Bahamas and other, popular, Caribbean vacation spots....even though there were already people living there!

Tomorrow, in 1746, the Jacobite uprising in England ends when Charles “Bonnie Prince Charlie” Stuart is defeated by the Duke of Cumberland.

Welcome to Tuesday Eve, gs!

Aftern00n, bigginTX!

Tomorrow is, Rubber Eraser Day! This day celebrates the invention of erasers. We all make mistakes. This day is designated to recognize and appreciate the value of that little plug (as manufacturers call them) that sits atop our pencils. When we make a mistake, they are the big "cover-up", make that eraser, of our booboo or faux pax. Just imagine how messy our documents would be without it!

Why not just call it "Eraser Day"? There's two reasons. The first erasers were made of rubber. Today, they are made of rubber, or vinyl. Secondly, in Great Brittain, they are formally called "rubbers".

In the world of erasers, two men are prominent. Joseph Priestley discovered the eraser in 1770, using pieces of rubber imported from Brazil. Then in 1858, Hyman Lipman of Philadelphia, Pa., patented the pencil with an eraser at the end.

Today's Quote: To err is human, an eraser is divine!

Good morning Gloria, Org, Senile, Three30.

On this day in history in 1865 Abraham Lincoln died from John Wilkes Booth's assassination bullet.

In 1912 with her band playing on the deck, the ocean liner Titanic sinks at 2:27 a.m. in the North Atlantic.

I think it was recently confirmed that a violin found was one used by a musician on board the Titanic.

And Leonhard Euler was born on this day in 1707. He was a pioneering Swiss mathematician and physicist and made important discoveries in fields as diverse as infinitesimal calculus and graph theory.

Mr. Euler was the cause of much consternation and agony for me in both junior and high school. I forgive him. :)

Tomorrow, on this day, in 1849, the safety pin was patented by Walter Hunt, in New York.

How's your Tuesday going, gs?

Tomorrow is, National Sibling Day! National Sibling Day is a day to appreciate and cherish your brothers and sisters. Siblings are truly a special blessing that we probably all too often take for granted. They are often our best friends and supporters through life. Another reason to celebrate is that not everyone is lucky enough to have siblings. Their lives are significantly different growing up, and throughout life.

Celebrate National Sibling Day in a variety of ways. It's a great time to be thankful for your sibling. But, most importantly get in touch with your siblings. Visit them if they live nearby. Call them, if they live far away. Send them a card, a letter, gifts, or flowers.

You're right, Org, tweed DOES itch when unlined! But it can be too hot when lined, too. Ah, there's not a lot real tweed worn in southern climes.

I'm no gambler. I went to Seminole Bingo and Casino yeeears ago before it became the Seminole Hard Rock in Tampa. Since two people were not allowed to play on the same Bingo cards (they're very serious about Bingo there), I went into the casino, which was very small compared to now. I had $10 and played a slot machine. I lost the $10 quickly and then slowly regained it and then walked away. Haven't played since - with real money. I play the slots on Great Day Games with fake money sometimes - and lose it every time! I'll just stick with the crossword puzzles. :)

Welcome to the weekend, gs!

bigginTX, Unlined, you make me itch!

Today is, Go For Broke Day! Are you a gambler? Then, today, is your day. Today is a day to put it all on the line, and take a chance. It might be money. Or, it can be a love relationship. Perhaps, it's time to initiate a risky project, or to take a new job.

Many of us go about our daily lives playing it safe, not taking big chances. If you are of a conservative ilk, you may have never gone out on a limb, or taken big risks. If this sounds like you, maybe today is a day to really let loose and "Go for Broke".

If you can muster up the courage to take a big risk, you can enjoy today by taking big risks and "Going for Broke". It's up to you to decide whether the risk is worth taking.

Hello Gloria, Org, Senile, Three30.

We have 'tweed' in the South, but it's much thinner and generally not lined, though it can be (for a prettier penny)....the thinner version is still pretty warm now that I think about it.

Today is, Tweed Day! Today we celebrate the warm, fashionable woolen clothing that originated in Scotland. Seemingly always in fashion, Tweed keeps you warm and looks good, too. It should come as no surprise to learn that tweed is more popular in the north, and not often worn in the south.

Hi Gloria,

Here at the Funny Farm, life is beautiful all the time.

Money-saving grocery tips...I don't know if you have a Kroger there in the Volunteer state, but Kroger is my favorite grocery store because they always have good deals and they double the value of your coupon up to $1.00. Also, I receive coupons exclusively from Kroger on items I buy a lot there, some even free like cereal or snack crackers.

FYI, there ar 13 1/2 Kroger right here in Garfield, IL.

No coffee or tea for me...whiskey and rye or a Gibson's.

bigginTX, Correct you are!

Today is, International Fun at Work Day

Fun at Work Day is a day to have fun at work for once. Ideally, work should be fun. But normally, work is not intended to have fun. It's intended to get work done. You're a very lucky person, if you if you can get work done and have fun doing it. The lucky souls in this situation, love their job.
Unfortunately, all of us are not lucky enough to have a job that's fun to do. If that's you, then today is a day just for you! Think of ways to make your job more fun and exciting. Look to do some fun things at work today, even if it takes away from production just a wee bit.

Please Note: If you do fun things today that is counter-productive, or takes you away from the job, make sure you get your boss' permission first. Better still, get him or her involved.
