Leap Year 2012


Leaping Ambition

What will you do today ?
Don’t delay
Start something new?
Make Frogmore stew?
Take a chance on romance?
Learn a new dance?
Buy a new pair of pants
Stop with your rants
Take a positive stance
Sneak a glance
Learn a new chant
Forget the word “Can’t”
Buy a new plant
Paint a Rembrandt
and always enchant

Why do we need Leap Years?

Leap Years are needed to keep our calendar in alignment with the Earth’s revolutions around the sun. It takes the Earth approximately 65.242199 days (a tropical year) to circle once around the Sun. But.. the Gregorian calendar has only 365 days in a year, so if we didn’t add a day on February 29 nearly every 4 years, we would lose almost six hours off our calendar every year.

Caboodle Cat Ranch


On TLC a Cat’s Paradise

I had heard about the ranch a few years ago and thought how lovely,a little paradise for kitties to be safe and warm.I have read the news events of the past few days and am wondering what to believe.This man evidently has a huge heart.You can clearly see how much of himself he put into this place.I hope whatever goes down it is fair.Most of all I hope all the kitties are safe and the ones that are truly sick be put out of there misery.He mentioned he did not want to play God,but sometimes euthanasia is the kindest act of all.

The WWW is a wonderful thing,but hey folks nothing is FREE,you pay one way or the other.

If you delete all your web history and you have a bad memory you are only making it harder on yourself.

The government knows everything about everyone already.Why do you think acquiring a new drivers license is so hard these days?

I mean don’t even bother unless you have proof of who you are,who you married,who you divorced.Where you went to school,where you were born.What your dad did for a living.You get the picture…Right?

If you feel someone is watching you,and you are a paranoid person from the get-go stay off the WWW.You are being watched and there is nothing you can do about it.

That said ~ stay safe and don’t be stupid.

Be careful of email attachments.Make sure your passwords are not easily compromised and change them often.

Everyday I am Shuffling


We Just wanna see you Shake that…

I have never been one for exercise or fad diets, counting calories not for me either.
So, I just started using a smaller plate and ya know it works. Since last year at my highest weight of 220; I am down too 195. This is the same I weighed in 1998.
When I graduated from high school in 1966 I weighed 150. I think I would look like a crack addict if I weighed that now.

I was raised on Fried and Creamed. The more dough and grease the better.
I bake now, and not pies.
