What have I been doing?

Oh goodness! Has it been that long since I haven't blog. Not that I really do..LOL. I had been so busy and crazy with my parents and brother. My brothe had surgery a few weeks ago. It was juat one day. He is doing okay, I will post about it another time .IN the meantime, Mom is doing better as well as my Dad himself. I'd been busy with school and now I got to write a book report.
I haven't done a book report in 24 yrs. UGH! Its on the day of history. Nov. 13. There were a several topics and I have to choose one of them. I think I will pick the Holland Tunnel. That is on the Hudson River going into New Jersey. About a fire. I ended looking some informations and I have to read it and do the homework. I will probably do that tomorrow. I don't know I will write it on the same day.So, in the meantime wish my luck..LOL.
I also decided to go back on my power walking from my video and get in another small size. I bought a gorgeous dress for my second cousin's wedding. I love it and its feels so good to be in a dress that i would like. It is black low cut v-neck and a kinda twisted gathering at hip with a stone button. I am so thrilled with and the best part it was on sale for about $45 from a $200 dress. I was amazed. I thought it wiil be about $60 and the final marked down was lower. Lucky me..LOL Got to love those sales.. Now, I got to look for jewelry and a purse to match. Ran out steam that day. Did I tell you that my mom, sisters and I went shopping two weeks ago? It was a blast and went out to TGIFriday's for an appetizer. We were going to have dinner soon we got home but ended up being so full. That why I decided to go on th diet or at least watch what I eat. I really don't diet for that matter.
It was so crazy that I didn't even post something of my sister. Who passed two years ago on the seventh. I didn't mean to do that but since my mom fell everything just went from one things to another. We all do misses her very much and I didn't toallu forgot her because we were thinking about her all the times. LOVE you big sister.

Okay, I think I am going to get off and get some sleep. SO, until next time.

Sunday Funnies:


Irish Viagra:

An Irish woman of advanced age visited her physician to ask his advice on reviving her husband's libido.
'What about trying Viagra?' asked the doctor.
'Not a chance', she said. 'He won't even take an aspirin.'
'Not a problem,' replied the doctor. 'Give him an 'Irish Viagra'. It's when you drop the Viagra tablet into his coffee. He won't even taste it.. Give it a try and call me in a week to let me know how things went.'
It wasn't a week later when she called the doctor, who directly inquired as to her progress.

The poor dear exclaimed, 'Oh, faith, bejaysus and begorrah! T'was horrid! Just terrible, doctor!'
'Really? What happened?' asked the doctor.
'Well, I did as you advised and slipped it in his coffee and the effect was almost immediate. He jumped straight up, with a twinkle in his eye and with his pants a-bulging fiercely! With one swoop of his arm, he sent me cups and tablecloth flying, ripped me clothes to tatters and took me then and there passionately on the tabletop! It was a nightmare, I tell you, an absolute nightmare!'
'Why so terrible?' asked the doctor, 'Do you mean the sex your husband provided wasn't good?'
'Freakin' jaysus, 'twas the best sex I've had in 25 years! But sure as I'm sittin' here, I'll never be able to show my face in Starbucks again!

Enjoy your Sunday and week..

I am back and so far behind....

I am back and doing okay. I got a lot to tell. I went to a Halloween party with a friend and her family Friday night. I went as Elvis and she went as Ranassiance Mistress. It was more of a family and friend gathering kind of party. I tell you, there were alot of kids. I wish I got pictures of them but I don't. They were cute too.. One kid went as "Robin" from Batman and Robin. There were two Cheerleaders. Two pricesses, One Transformer, and Tinkerebell. WHoo, what a line up.
I didn't have no internet connecting since Wed or Thurs. Ugh! I hate when that happened and this was the second time that we had to get someone to come and check it out. I got on alright and I asked him what did he do? He showed me what was the problem and next time I will know what to do. Thanks God that we can use the internet again.
Another thing went wrong this week in a half. My mom fell down on the sidewalk pavement last Sunday. It was not a good picture. She was really hurt and a gentleman came out and check on us and see wnat the problem is. He took my mom and brother to the hospital. She had her x-rays and catscan done. They both came back negatives. As some of you follow me on FB, you had been supported. Thank you. Mom is doing good and she is getting around. Last week she couldn't go anywhere without any help. My eldest sister and SIL did some shopping for us.
So, here are some scrapbook layouts and I will post an up close photo of me by the end of the week. Take care for now.

Lunch,shopping,and hanging out:


Today my mom was on the phone with my big sister(The eldest of us five girls). We went out for lunch and Dad came alone too. As we were sitting my oldest niece and nephew in-law showed up at the nick of time as were be seated. So, we end up getting a bigger table. There were six of us. They all had open chicken souvlaki, my NIL and I had something different, I ended having turkey with apple and brie sandwich and he had some kind of sub. I can't remember seeing that on the menu. OH well. We all had a good time and just came home.
Dad needed to sit in a comfortable chair. As we were driving home Mom had to stop at a local dept. store to find a rain coat. I can't believe that we can't find rain coat as much as we did in the past. UGH! I was looking for a regular winter coat that not so bulky. I hate the new styles they're carrying. Ugly and for girls only kind of style. Get real designers. Us older woman don't want to dress like our teenage daughers. Sorry ladies, I know some of you have some. Everything from tight to babydoll and almost semi-nude clothing today. Mom and I agreed on one thing. Got to get away and buy clothes. We usually find some out of town. That what I miss most.
In the meantime everybody is doing good and including Donna herself. I haven't seen her since last Sunday at my siste's place. So, have a good weekend. Off for now.

Sunday funny: Part ll


Before I lay me down to sleep,
I pray for a man who's not a creep.
One who's handsome, smart and strong,
one who loves to listen long.
One who thinks before he speaks,
one who'll call, not wait for weeks.
I pray he's gainfully employed,
when I spend his cash, won't be annoyed.
Pulls out my chair and opens my door,
massages my back and begs to do more.
Oh! Send me a man who'll make love to my mind,
knows what to answer to how big is my behind?

I pray that this man will love me to no end,
And always be my very best friend.


I pray for a deaf-mute nymphomaniac with huge boobs who owns a bar on a golf course.

And loves to send me out fishing and hunting.

This doesn't rhyme and I don't give a shit

Sunday funny part one..Halloween photo

Happy Halloween

Driving me crazy...

The last few days we haven't got any internet connections. I wondered why? I told my Dad that the computer is having problems. HE went on yesterday and couldn't get on either. I told him I think the moderm isn't workin. SO, My folks call the phone company and the guy came in this morning. FInally! We are back online. YAY! I got admit it that I was going through a withdrawal. I could not imagine living without our PC world.LOL.. ANyway my mom and I went grocery shopping with big sis. It was nice to get out of the house. Soon we got out of the store it was raining in the misty kind of way. It was so gloomy looking too. I am glad it was misty than downpoured rain like Cats and Dogs. Now tonight it is raining. At least I got somewhere to go. I am going to keep it simple so everyone have a good weekend.

Figure it out:

In my last entry, I couldn't change my header photos. When I went back today, I finally click on the edit and I got what I wanted. I just decided not to use a photo there since I got a new background.
Today we're just hanging out as our typical Sunday. Having roast pork for dinner and Lemon pie. YUMMY! I am so glad we're eating winter type of foods. Hot dogs and hamburgers seems to get a little boring as well as other grill foods.LOL. I guess I will get of the PC and work on some of my homework. Have a great Sunday everybody.
Until next time.

Been a while..

Its been a while since I had been blogging. I just playing on Facebook for a while to just to get around on other internet website and playing their games. We got our pool closed Saturday. My nephews came and help my brother. Cheaper than hiring someone. Now the temps really cooling down. Supposed to be in the mid-50's all week. A little too cool. Can't wait to get winter clothes out. I have to go through some of my clothes and see if they fits. Since I had loss the weight, I have to make sure the turtleneck and long sleeves shirts fits. Otherwise I have to get rid of them. I am going to go back on my exercise and see if I can lose another size. Keeping fingers cross.
I got together with my friend Friday for lunch and hangout at her place and stayed for dinner. I told her we need to get together for a quite more often before the weather gets colder and snowed.LOL..
My folks are doing okay.Dad still hanging there. Mom is good herself. I got my grade back from the summer and my math went up..YAY! I still needs to get the reading up.. Still steady though. I am just hanging in there as long as I can. Maybe by Feb of next year it'll get there. I got this far and I am not giving up..Donna is doing good herself, she is going back to work this week. You can visit her blog and see if she upgraded herself. We'll this is it for now and everyone take care.

Welfare Check: Funny!

A guy walked into the local Welfare Office to pick up his check. He marched straight up to the counter and said, "Hi. You know, > I just HATE drawing welfare. I'd really rather have a job." The social worker behind the counter said, "Your timing is excellent. We just got a job opening from a very wealthy old man who wants a chauffeur and bodyguard for his beautiful daughter. You'll have to drive around in his 2009 Mercedes-Benz CL, and he will supply all of your clothes. Because of the long hours, meals will be provided. You'll also be expected to escort the daughter on her overseas holiday trips. This is rather awkward to say but you will also have, as part of your job > assignment, to satisfy her sexual urges as the daughter is in her mid-20's > and has a rather strong sex drive. A two-bedroom loft type apartment with plasma TV, stereo, bar, etc. > located above the garage, will be designated for your sole use and > the salary is $200,000 a year."

The guy, just plain wide-eyed, said, "You're bullshittin' me!"

The social worker said, "Yeah, well . You started it."

Tomorrow is my big sister's birthday. Some of you know as Martha K. I also want to let you know if you don't follow me on FB. Donna has fallen down the other day at a benefit party for the local firemen. I don't want to say how exactly she fall. She hurt her shoulder and fallen on her face. It was not exactly a big year for her. So, she goes back to work and now this. I felt so terrible for her.I did seen her tonight with mom and dad. I am sure she'll explain on her blog if she goes on. I don't want to give out to much details.

I can't complain it is a free class and it's only three days a week. I just want to bring my grade up so I can take the course I want. If not, I will find something else or go back to work. I am not working at the moments and I want to focus on one thing at a time. I do not drive and have seizures. I haven't had any in a while. SO, knock on wood...WHHOOOOO hoooo...I am not going to get to excited about that.

I wrote your name:

I wrote your name on a piece of paper, but by accident I threw it away.
I wrote your name on my hand, but it washed away.
I wrote your name in the sand, but the waves whispered it away.
I wrote your name in my heart, and forever it will stay.

Send this to everyone you love including the person that sent it to you.

If you send this to 10 people in the next 43 minutes, then tomorrow will be the best day ever!

I believe in angels,
The kind that heaven sends.
I'm surrounded by angels, but I call them my friends.

I Wrote Your Name.

Keeping it simple:

I know i haven't blog in a while. I have been on Facebook and just learn to get around MySpace. I keep forgetting that I got an account with them. I have a friend who helped me on as well as I did to her on bLogger.
The weather been not so great for a week and a half. Our motor from the filter died and my brother replaced a part and a few days later the pump wouldn't work. So, in the meantime we ended up buying the whole new piece. Instead of gettiing two parts we ended up with the full one. The pool company said, "That they don't make them like that anymore." Anyhow the pool has been green for a week. Then the service guy came last Saturday and hook it up. Now the pool is clean as a whistle. I am so glad that my brother was here. At least he knew what to do. I don't know what if I do without him.(LOL) He does a lot of stuffs around our hose for Mom and Dad. Now, that the pool is set back and normal the weather starting to get warmer. Just in time for Labor Day Weekend. I was hoping the price was good too. Although I forgot, we got two parts in one deal. In the meantime,I have no idea what we are going to do this weekend. I guess it just play by ears and go with the flow.

Kids are back in school at my old neighborhood. It is odd. Very seldoms that the kids goes back to school before Labor Day. They usually starts the week of or the following. Good point though. I don't start back until the 9th.I think I'll go the following week instead. The class i am going to is a free Adult Education course for GED. I know I have my High School diploma, but my grades were low and since then I was in Special Ed because of my hearing. I am doing good at Math, but the reading that I am low at. Keep fingers crossed because I am not staying after this year. I got go back to work myself eventually. Keep fingers cross for that too..LOL.By the way I am on MySpace you can go here.So everybody have a good Friday or the weekend..Until next time..

Who Said "History Was Boring?"

A Bit of History

The next time you are washing your hands and complain because the water temperature isn't just how you like it, think about how things used to be.
Here are some facts about the 1500s:

Most people got married in June because they took their yearly bath in May and still smelled pretty good by June. However, they were starting to smell, so brides carried a bouquet of flowers to hide the body odor.
Hence the custom today of carrying a bouquet when getting married.

Don't Throw the Baby Out With the Bathwater
Baths consisted of a big tub filled with hot water. The man of the house had the privilege of the nice clean water, then all the other sons and men, then the women and finally the children - last of all the babies. By then the water was so dirty you could actually lose someone in it.
Hence the saying, "Don't throw the baby out with the bath water."

It's Raining Cats and Dogs
Houses had thatched roofs - thick straw - piled high, with no wood underneath. It was the only place for animals to get warm, so all the dogs, cats and other small animals (mice, bugs) lived in the roof. When it rained it became slippery and sometimes the animals would slip and fall off the roof.
Hence the saying "It's raining cats and dogs."

Canopy Beds
There was nothing to stop things from falling into the house. That posed a real problem in the bedroom where bugs and other droppings could really mess up your nice clean bed. Hence, a bed with big posts and a sheet hung over the top afforded some protection. That's how canopy beds came into existence.

Dirt Poor and Thresh Hold
The floor was dirt. Only the wealthy had something other than dirt. Hence the saying "dirt poor." The wealthy had slate floors that would get slippery in the winter when wet, so they spread thresh (straw) on the floor to help keep their footing. As the winter wore on, they kept adding more thresh until when you opened the door it would all start slipping outside. A piece of wood was placed in the entranceway.
Hence the saying a "thresh hold."

Peas Porridge Hot, Peas Porridge Cold....
In those old days, they cooked in the kitchen with a big kettle that always hung over the fire. Every day they lit the fire and added things to the pot. They ate mostly vegetables and did not get much meat. They would eat the stew for dinner, leaving leftovers in the pot to get cold overnight and then start over the next day. Sometimes the stew had food in it that had been there for quite a while.
Hence the rhyme, "Peas porridge hot, peas porridge cold, peas porridge in the pot nine days old."

Bring Home the Bacon and Chew the Fat

Sometimes they could obtain pork, which made them feel quite special. When visitors came over, they would hang up their bacon to show off. It was a sign of wealth that a man "could bring home the bacon." They would cut off a little to share with guests and would all sit around and "chew the fat."

Burning the Candle at Both Ends
They would often use a reed full of bacon fat and burn this this for light at night, but when guests came over they would light both ends for more light, thus "burning the candle at both ends." Those with money had plates made of pewter.


Food with high acid content caused some of the lead to leach onto the food, causing lead poisoning and death. This happened most often with tomatoes, so for the next 400 years or so, tomatoes were considered poisonous.

The Upper Crust
Bread was divided according to status. Workers got the burnt bottom of the loaf, the family got the middle, and guests got the top, or "upper crust."

A Wake
Lead cups were used to drink ale or whisky. The combination would sometimes knock them out for a couple of days. Someone walking along the road would take them for dead and prepare them for burial. They were laid out on the kitchen table for a couple of days and the family would gather around and eat and drink and wait and see if they would wake up.
Hence the custom of holding a "wake."

Bone House & Saved by the Bell
England is old and small and the local folks started running out of places to bury people. So they would dig up coffins and would take the bones to a "bone-house" and reuse the grave. When reopening these coffins, 1 out of 25 coffins were found to have scratch marks on the inside and they realized they had been burying people alive. So they thought they would tie a string on the wrist of the corpse, lead it through the coffin and up through the ground and tie it to a bell. Someone would have to sit out in the graveyard all night (the "graveyard shift") to listen for the bell; thus, someone could be "saved by the bell" or was considered a "dead ringer."

And that's the truth! Now, whoever said that history was boring?

Funny joke: Hospitals

I got this joke from a friend in my e-mail.


A man is lying in bed in the hospital with an oxygen mask over his mouth. A young nurse appears to sponge his hands and feet.

"Nurse," he mumbles from behind the mask, "Are my testicles black?"

Embarrassed, the young nurse replies, "I don't know, I'm only here to wash your hands and feet."

He struggles again to ask, "Nurse, are my testicles black?"

Finally she pulls back the covers, raises his gown, holds his penis in one hand and his testicles in her other hand and takes a close look, and says, "There's nothing wrong with them!"

Finally, the man pulls off his oxygen mask and replies,

"That was very nice but, are... my... test...results...back?"

Another hot day and photos..

We were supposed to have rain in our forecast and I believe we will tonight. It has been a hot and humid all weekend until now. Today I see 90 degree.. Whooo it's hot! I do got some photos from the poolside. In the meantime just about nobody has shown up to use the pool. I was in it this afternoon and it was peaceful. Everybody has been good.So, here are some of my photos and I will be back soon. Take care and enjoy your rest of the summer.

Sunday funnies: Boys and Girls-cute

Don't eat chicken sandwiches, no matter what.....

A little boy and a little girl attended the same school and became friends.

Every day they would sit together to eat their lunch. They discovered that
they both brought chicken sandwiches every day!

This went on all through the fourth and fifth grades, until one day he
noticed that her sandwich wasn't a chicken sandwich.

He said, "Hey, how come you're not eating chicken, don't you like it anymore?"
She said "I love it but I have to stop eating it."

"Why?" he asked.

She pointed to her lap and said
"Cause I'm starting to grow little feathers down there!"

"Let me see" he said.

"Okay" and she pulled up her skirt.
He looked and said, "That's right. You are!
Better not eat any more chicken."
He kept eating his chicken sandwiches until one day he brought peanut butter.

He said to the little girl, "I have to stop eating chicken sandwiches,
I'm starting to get feathers down there too!"

She asked if she could look, so he pulled down his pants for her.

She said "Oh, my God, it's too late for you!
You've already got the neck and the gizzards."

Finally! That we got some hot weather..

Hello and I'm back. The weather here in New York has been heating up the storm. We'd been in our pool just about every days. Can you blame me.LOL. Last month we'd got a lot of cool temps and rain just about everyday. It's been not a great summer until now. Now that the summer is almost over and it just beginning to come around. In some area were I live, the next counties had more rain and under water. I know that some of you went through this in the south. Apparently we had it. Thanks goodness it stop for a while. It's supposed to be in the upper 80's this weekend and I am definetly ready.
Here are some photos of the flowers that growing in my backyard. The flower were my brothers. He planted these. The yellow one is a flower that grew in our wildflower.Never recall seeing that one before. I will post soon and have a good night.

Beautiful SIsters: By Maya Angelou


By Maya Angelou

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say.... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living;'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say.... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
my flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou;
I'm just a simple sinner who received God's good grace, somehow!

Pretty is as pretty does... But beautiful is just plain beautiful!


I'm supposed to send this to BEAUTIFUL WOMEN, and you are one of them!!!
If you share this with other women, you will boost another woman's self esteem, and she will know that you care about her.

Swimming, Kids and Great Time!

Hello everybody,

I promise that I will put these photos on my blog. I didn't feel like putting my initials on them. These photos were taken a couple of weeks agoof my great niece and nephew and their cousin. They were having the time of their lives. I forgot how much fun it was to be a kid again.LOL. Perhaps I will put more on soon.
Tuesday was another hot day here in New York. I didn't take any pictures. My sister D did. She have her long time best friend up and she took a day off to come over and swim and her friend did too. It was a great day that just about all the family members were here. We had several different sausages, barbecued hamburgers, German potatoes salad, regular potato salad and two kind of macaroni salads. Yummy! We were also going to a local park and watch a concert and D stopped by and it was too crowded and nowhere to park. In the meantime went to big sister's house and hang around. We end up play RLC game that like poker but we use quarters instead of chips. We had a blast and I haven't been out in aged to my eldest sister's place. There were no guys there except my brother. My youngest niece came too. Anyway, here are the photos and I will post more soom and have a good night. Nancy
