So I surf blogs now too. I have a few saved in "my favorites." I really like this one where he goes out and takes pictures of the old estates on Long Island. I've never been there but his pictures are incredible - they make you want to see Long Island in person!
Then there is this other one where these two couples went on a motorcycle journey to the corners of the US. Amazing pictures, too!
There is a lady in Queen Creek that has her first article in a magazine this September. Congrads to her!
I've found blogs where they have given way too much important information ( birth dates, names, addresses, phone numbers, etc.). I saw one blog where she had her complete name and address and all the pictures of each room in her house. I bet the burglars like her!
It always makes me laugh when I see young girls from Singapore blogs. They list themselves as 13 and still single.... chuckling as I type. They try to blog in English and everything is misspelled.
There are a million Dylan and Cole Sprouse blogs :(
I like the blogs where people go on trips, take pictures and give a brief summary of that area. You get to see areas of the world you'll never get to see in person. Or the blogs with pictures of their flower gardens - pets, or how to do projects.
***Sometimes I see pictures on blogs and wonder if they realize that pictures can be copied***

Anyway, this morning before my husband left for work - ARE YOU SITTING DOWN? - he said: "While you're out running errands today, why don't you get a new outfit for the party?"
"Well, sure dear, if you really want me to." :)
I love fun shopping.

Please keep it cool in mid-July.
Bless the walls where termites dine,
While ants and roaches march in time.
Bless our yard where spiders pass
Fire ant castles in the grass.
Bless the garage, a home to please
Rattlesnakes, scorpions, ticks and fleas.
Bless the palo verde bugs, two by two,
the gnats and mosquitoes that feed on you.
Millions of creatures that fly or crawl,
Lord, you've put them all!
But this is home, and here we'll stay,
So thank you Lord, for insect spray.
As I get the house ready for 100 guests this weekend - the sewer system backs up again. The plumber was here just a week and a half ago. I am doing the two step here. One step forward, two steps back. Oh my!

Cats are like potato chips - you can't have just one.

then I remembered those people that voted against having Labor Day as one of their holidays. Tyson in Shelbyville, Tennessee will be celebrating eid al-fitr instead of Labor Day. ummmm I will be buying chicken but NOT the Tyson brand!
.... salad, baked beans, deviled eggs, "snack" food, dessert and whatever everyone else brings. We have a 15 by 25 foot game room filled with pinball machine, air hockey, Golden Tee, slot machines, 2 arcade games, Pac-man, Touch machine, and a TV hooked up to a Wii. Outside we have an electronic dart game, covered patio with mister, "the BBQ" and a bar with a real Pepsi soda pop machine. We have a large gazebo and a pool with a slide and diving board.

I flew out to celebrate her 4th birthday. I stayed at the bed & breakfast in their town. The owners of the bed & breakfast fixed a wonderful breakfast birthday party out on the front yard (the picture above). We then went to Cameron Park Zoo and the Mayborn Museum Complex. We ended the day going to their neighbor's house for a birthday cake party in GiGi's honor.
Isn't she a doll!
Her dad was in Iraq for this birthday but able to be home for this birthday. God Bless this family - Happy Birthday GiGi

This is just an idea but..... there are certain parts of the US that flood every year - Missouri, for example along the Mississippi. There is hurricane season every year in the Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida.
My idea is: Arizona is a desert - we could always use some water. While those other states are experiencing heavy rain, flooding, etc. we are dry, hot and have to purchase our water from Colorado. Why not built a pipeline like they did in Alaska. It could bring much NEEDED water to drought areas from areas that get way too much. Like an Arizona Water Pipeline... What do you think?
It would create jobs. If it leaked like sometimes the Alaska pipeline does, it would not harm the environment. All you see on TV is recycle, reuse, eco-friendly and so on. Why not recycle, reuse water? This pipeline could have "faucets" along the way to Arizona - that way everyone could share the water. I'm sure that New Mexico and West Texas wouldn't mind a little bit of water.

With a straight face he asked me: "Is that where you hid your first husband?" :)

1. A weatherperson in Phoenix! How hard can it be to come to work and say on TV it's going to be ANOTHER hot day in Phoenix.
2. The photographer taking the pictures of Michael Phelps getting ANOTHER GOLD medal. Way to go USA!
3. Taste-tester at a chocolate factory. I can see it now... May I try ANOTHER one please? I don't think this batch is perfect yet :)

I have very little left from the years we spent in Germany. It all pretty much fits in a shoebox. They all said when you go to Germany - you'll come back with a child, a cuckoo clock and a divorce. Jackpot! 36 years was so long ago...
Today starts the Olympics in China.
