Jackson Browne - These Days

He wrote this when he was sixteen....Talk about poetry....

Well I've been out walking

I don't do that much talking these days

These days--

These days I seem to think a lot

About the things that I forgot to do

For you

And all the times I had the chance to

And I had a lover

It's so hard to risk another these days

These days--

Now if I seem to be afraid

To live the life that I have made in song

Well it's just that I've been losing for so long

I'll keep on moving...moving on

Things are bound to be improving these days

These days--These days I sit on corner stones

And count the time in quarter tones to ten, my friend

Don't confront me with my failures

I had not forgotten them

How can you argue with this? Jackson, Jackson, Jackson! YAY!

Do You Know This Woman?
Have YOU Ever Seen This Photo?
My friend Medusa, is so smart...Keep reading!
~This is from her blog~
One of the many fake "after" pictures that Heidi Diaz/Kimmer posted on her Kimkins.con website last year to depict her fraudulent weight loss continues to intrigue me.

The picture has never been found and/or the woman identified.
Many posters on the Fascination with Kimmer (FWK) thread on Low Carb Friends searched for the picture but never found it.
So I have decided to have a contest in an attempt to
quench my insatiable curiosity.
The person who is able to find the original picture of the mystery woman and provide me with a link or
tear-sheet of it in its original form,
will win
a $25.00 gift certificate from
.So all you super sleuths, start digging :^)
DO ANY OF YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHO THIS WOMAN IS? If so, please report to Medusa!
Here is her original post, with all the contest details!

Beautiful Jackson~

Yes he is, and here he is....for your viewing pleasure~

Still takes my breath away.....

~I thought I was a child
Until you turned and smiled
By now I should have long been gone
But, here I am, still looking on
As if I didn't know, which way to run~
thank you, Jackson!

Farts Are Funny!

In a discussion which got heated, on a message board I frequent, a few of us decided to lighten the mood by discussing, of all things, farts.....

Why are farts so funny?
The great comedian George Carlin actually has a routine based on the humorous nature of farts.
Great material.

Here's my contribution to all the folks out there who agree with me,
that FARTS are indeed FUNNY!

(yes, at times I have the sense of humor of a twelve year old boy)

In my powder room~
(guest bathroom, decorated with hand painted tole trays,
paintings of roses and a very Victorian theme)
I have this book, prominently displayed

Yes, I do.
This is a classic and I encourage you to Google it
and obtain it from your favorite bookstore as well as the sequel~

In an effort to lighten your (ahem) load at the end of this busy week~
I leave you with a fart joke
~to read~to share~to laugh about

Don't be afraid to laugh!
It's good for your spirit and good for the soul!

Doctor, "What seems to be the problem?"

Patient, "Doc, I've got the farts. I mean I fart all the time,"

The Doctor nods, "Hmm."

Patient, "My farts do not stink and you can't hear them.
It's just that I fart all the time.

Look, we've been talking here for about 10 minutes and I've farted five times.

You didn't hear them and you don't smell them, do you?

""Hmm," says the Doctor,He picks up his pad and writes out a prescription.

The patient is thrilled

"Great doc. This prescription, will it really clear up my farts?"

"No," sighs the Doctor,

"The prescription is to clear your sinuses.
Next week I want you back here for a hearing test."

The Case of the Missing Tampons

I saw these two pictures today, and thought they were so funny. Apparently, the person who took them was standing in line at Wal Mart to return something, and noticed this cute little kid.

Upon further observation, she noticed the kid was sucking on a TAMPON!

Later today, I read the funniest story, written by a friend who posts on one of the message boards I frequent. She is the mother of sons, the only girl in the house, and kept discovering a dwindling tampon supply month after month. Was she going crazy, simply forgetful, or was there more to this mystery?

My friend, "Tooter" had to solve

the case of the missing tampons!

Her Story Follows

Where Are The Tampax?
Ok, I'm the only female in a house full of guys: 4 sons and a hubby.
Toilet seat never down, etc.-you get the picture.
Therefore, I'm the only one who would be using Female products, correct?

A strange thing was happening at my house: tampons were disappearing.

*insert Twilight Zone theme*

It started a few months ago, when I went to my cupboard to get out a tampon and there was only one left. I could have sworn I had just bought a box the month before.
So, I go back to the store, buy a new box and forget about it.

The next month (that time of month), I go back to the cupboard and viola! there is only one tampon left, again!
What is going on here? Gremlins? Total memory failure?

I go to the store, buy another box and try to chalk it up to forgetfulness,
but am really wondering, now.

Later in the month, I decide to clean out my two youngest sons' closet and,
Low and Behold!
at the bottom of their closet are the wrappers, applicators, and the tampon themselves!

Now I am starting to freak... Dear God, what are they doing with them?!!

I get hold of myself, tell myself that "I am an Adult" and can handle this-despite the bizarre thoughts running through my mind.
Wondering, "Do I have enough money saved up in the bank for

I go to the stairs and yell to my two youngest sons to "Come Here, RIGHT NOW!!!"

With their usual lack of speed, they finally appear in their room to find me staring
into the bottom of their closet.

I firmly, but with control, ask,
"What are you doing with THOSE? Those are MINE!"

My 12 year old looks like a deer caught in the headlights and is silent.
My 10 year old looks at me, all innocent, and says,
"Well, Mom, we were playing with our G.I. Joes and THOSE make really good SCUD missiles.
What do YOU use them for?"

Aggie American Idol! ~Calling All Jason Castro Fans~

My nephew (darling sister Debbie's son) is a graduate student at Texas A & M University, and my sister recently sent me this forwarded letter which is a "call to action" to help get American Idol contestant Jason Castro in the top three finalists.

I was going to get my friend Austin Girl or her side kick Buddy "Fat Bastard" to do a shout out about this to all her Texas readers, but I thought better of it, figuring those two are University of Texas fans (for those of you who don't know, there is a bitter rivalry between Texas A & M and University of Texas....Bitter, bad, bad. bad, bitter, bitter.)
(read more about Buddy, here)
(read more about Austin Girl, too)

Fat Bastard has probably already wrecked havoc upon an Aggie dog or two
(or fifty),
I'm guessing.

If you are a Jason Castro fan, or a Texas A & M Fan~Here's some info~

If any of you are inclined to help out an Aggie,
here is the plea to all Aggies,
which was sent to me!
Please, no messages about the merits of each contestant. I love all of them, but the three boys left really are my favorites!
The voting for tonight continues for two hours after your
American Idol episode airs.

Texas A&M student Jason Castro '09, a landscape architecture major from Rockwall, has made it to the final four on the Fox television talent show American Idol.

If he receives enough votes tonight to advance to the final three, Jason will come home to Texas A&M to film a segment for the American Idol show, bringing a glimpse of Aggieland to tens of millions of American Idol viewers
around the world.

But for that to happen, the Aggie Network must join together to vote Jason through to the next round. Something special happens when the Aggie family unites in support of a fellow Ag—bonds are strengthened, memories are made, and the Aggie story gains another layer.

This is where you come in as a former student. Tonight at 7 p.m. Central time, take a moment to watch Jason perform live on American Idol on your local Fox station, then follow the instructions for voting Jason through to the next round. Voting is straightforward: a simple phone call or text message to the number on the screen.

For more information:

Gig em, Aggies! Yes, that would be Beautiful Daughter, oh so many years ago~

Editing after the show~ My LORD!

David Archuleta blew everyone away, in my humble opinion!

This boy is in a league all his own.

I don't know how to define his voice and presence.

The words that come to mind are ~heavenly, angelic, pure, innocent, beautiful, stunning, perfect, harmonious~

This is the person to beat, IMO and the fabulous music savant that lives with me! Well, he's really not a savant~ just really smart about anything involving music!

My assessment is this~ Jason has such charm, but he was off for his two songs.

I liked him, but music experts who reside in my house pointed out his sacrilege;

for example, pitch problems, cadence, phrasing, etc.

I bow to the expertise I am blessed to live with, but I liked what he did!

I Shot the Sheriff and Mr. Tambourine Man, two completely classic, wonderful, quirky songs, were great choices, IMO

~ I loved him, but the consensus (in my humble abode and that of Randy, Paula and Simon) was that he was "off"~

The kid is so relaxed and adorable, you can't help but love him! Nothing Simon says phases him. For sure, he is the underdog for the top three, but my family is certainly rooting for him! GO JASON!!!

I think David Cook will make it thru....I'm on the fence with regard to Sayesha.

Tell me what you all think! Leave a comment!

It's getting down to the wire!

For My Girlfriends of a ~Certain Age~

For All My Girlies!
Where has the time gone?

Remember when we were little girls, playing jump rope,

telling secrets, sharing dreams?

Then, we were "babes", ahhh what a life!

Hopefully, we look more like "babes" than this! YIKES

My advice? Stay YOUNG~Stay LOOSE~


Laugh Everyday!

Here's something to laugh about today!

1. Aspire to be Barbie - the bitch has everything.

2. If the shoe fits - buy one in every color.

3. Take life with a pinch of salt... A wedge of lime, and a shot of tequila.

4. In need of a support group? - Cocktail hour with the girls! Cosmos anyone?

5. Go on the 30 day diet. (I'm on it and so far I've lost 15 days).

6. When life gets you down - just put on your big girl panties and deal with it.

7. Let your greatest fear be that there is no PMS and this is just your personality.

8. I know I'm in my own little world, but it's ok. They know me here.

9. Lead me not into temptation, I can find it myself.

10. Don't get your knickers in a knot, it solves nothing; and makes you walk funny.

11. When life gives you lemons in 2008 - turn it into lemonade then mix it with vodka. Lemondrop anyone?

12. Remember every good-looking, sweet, single male is someone else's ex-boyfriend or ex-husband!

Here's a toast from me to you! CHEERS Ladies!

Talking Kitties~Your Daily Dose of Adorable!~

How much do we love darling kitty cats?

Today, I read a story about someone leaving a mother cat and her two week old babies out on a curb in a cardboard box, with NO food, blanket or anything.

A precious cat lover is now fostering the little family, bless her heart!

How can anyone do anything like that to these little fur babies?

All kitties melt my heart!

They should all be loved and adored like the two in this sweet, funny clip!

Enjoy this heart warming and endearing video.Share it with your family~

Your kids will love it!

I increased this to full screen and my OWN two cats couldn't take their eyes off the computer!

About the Kitties

Stina and Mossy (the two cats seen in this video) usually fight instead of talk,

so this was an odd moment.

They kept "talking" for about 1 hour, constantly, according to their "mom" who posted this video.

Find more about these adorable female felines here TheCatsPyjaaaamas~

The biography below appears on her website.
