    I hope that you two have spoken to each other recently if just to say I love you.

    We definitely have. We talked for a long time last night. I think we both needed it. Thanks.

    I keep getting this in my spam mail as well. It's also annoying, especially since half the people they send it out to probably aren't male. (And we're not Samantha from Sex and the City either so we'd ant to try it)

    Good to know, queenb - the salt is closer to my cooktop than baking soda. Thanks!

    They play those on the radio at all hours of the day. YUCK!

    My peeve on feminine hygeine products is that I was checking out of the grocery store and a hot fireman, in uniform walked past just as I was scanning my feminine products.

    My peeve on feminine hygeine products is that I was checking out of the grocery store and a hot fireman, in uniform walked past just as I was scanning my feminine products.
    After hurricane Katrina, I had gone to a fundraiser at the Salvation Army. One of the things mentioned was that people were donating baby supplies in droves, but was really needed was hygiene supplies for adults, especially women.
    Well Walgreens was having a two for one sale on their hygiene products. I filled 2 of the small Walgreen carts with them. Boy did I get a LOT of strange looks in the store. I am sure people were thinking, that woman has a BIG problem and probably should see a doctor. One woman did ask me in line and I told her what I was doing and 2 other people including her jumped out of line and went and did the same thing. The Salvation Army people acted like I had brought them bags of gold when I walked in with those products.

    But I have to tell you it was a strange feeling shopping and paying for what was probably a couple dozen packages.

    So now that has become one of the things I tend to donate when people ask for supplies. Women are usually forgotten. Babies get tons of diapers and formula and food is always needed and donated, but toothbrushes, deoderant and feminine hygiene products are usually not ever thought of when it becomes donation time.

    Speaking of donations, I have to share this cute story.
    My church has a program where once a year, the teenagers do an all night lock-down and put together "clean-up" packages for victims of floods. They put in bleach, rubber gloves, scrub brushes and the like. They write encouraging messages on the outside of the boxes. One year, one of the kids had written "Contents: one clean up package. Enjoy!"
    I thought that was such a sweet, innocent thing to write, considering the purpose of the package.

    I'm safe at home with my two kitties. Gosh darn did I miss my two little ones.

    Just found out that my neighbor, a senior who actually hasn't lived in the house for a year or two, has just sold his house. It never went up for sale. He got around a half million $$. It's a large semi-bungalow that needs work and I expect a family has purchased. All we can find out is it's a numbered company that purchased. And there will be renovations.

    So, noise, people, children and maybe barking animals in my future. I sure hope they are nice. No more extra yard for Gracie and Tootles to explore daily.
