Three Little Pigs


The Three Little Pigs

Three Little Pigs went out to dinner one night.
The waiter came and took their drink order.

'I would like a Sprite,' said the first little piggy..

'I would like a Coke,' said t he second little piggy.

'I want water, lots and lots of water,' said the third little piggy.

The drinks were brought out and the waiter took their orders for dinner.

'I want a nice big steak,' said the first piggy.

'I would like the salad plate,' said the second piggy.

'I want water, lots and lots of water,' said the third little piggy.

The meals were brought out and a while later the waiter approached the table and asked if the piggies would like any dessert.

'I want a banana split,' said the first piggy.

'I want a cheesecake,' said the second piggy.

'I want water, lots and lots of water,' exclaimed the third little piggy.

'Pardon me for asking,' said the waiter to the third little piggy,'

But why have you only ordered water all evening?'

You're gonna LOVE this....

The third piggy says -


'Well, somebody has to go
'Wee, wee, wee, all the way

Same as me. Having leftovers and bummed around.IN the meantime,I end up doing it over ON the other hand, I was going to go over there this morning with eldest niece. it turns out that I went last night. Donna had her closet cleaned out for summer and some of the clothes were small. I did lose weight since lasr April up to 30 lbs. YAY! for me. I gets to wear a size smaller pair of jeans and other pants that she had.Oh loungers as well. Now,I can save a little money and a trip to the store. I am going to have to buy shorts though. That is okay b/c I like to shop and try some clothes on that fit a size smaller..LOL. Donna is doing good, got the stitches/staples out and just still on the itchy side..ugh and still in pain. Depend on her days. SHe looks good and just hanging in there for now.
However, I am off. SO, have a good Sunday and the week as well.

OH YEAH, It is that time again. Thursday is Donna's Birthday. We invited her over for dinner tomorrow along with my other big sis.. I don't know who else will show up as her son and his g/f. Maybe they'll come over later. Donna always loved Chinese foods that my father make.As long as I can remember she have this for her birthday. She likes Chinese and I like Mexicans. I love Mexicans foods as long since the early-mid 80's at the Old Town San Diego, Ca. The a restaurant opens years later called"CHI- CHI's". Now they're closed and TGIF took over. I can't even get the same foods like Chi-Chi's got. Even Chili's and they closed too where from I live. I got to go to the other side of town to get there. Of course Applebees another on of my favs restaurant.

Donna is doing good and she got her staple/stitches off and she doesn't feel as much pain as she did. I'm sure it'll pass by. Taking day by day. I am glad she's getting around and she said, "That next week she'll be able to drive again" and that's a good sign too. I can't wait and she'll be out of work 'til May 5th. I told her that I got two weeks off from school over Easter and maybe we'll do a little shopping or just walk around a little bit. So, there you go for my big sister Donna and I'm off to do my homework. Take care and GO over to Donna's site and leaves her some love or just put it here.
The birthday tag I made is from here look for sherbet and she got other stuff too..Some of her stuffs may not be availables so check it out and have a good night.

A Visitor at my door.

Okay it really isn't a visitor its just more than that. She is Donna. Yep, Donna and my other sister came for breakfast and hang out for a few hours. I also had my brother and his wife over too. It was a splendid afternoon. My sister had to help my mom pick up a TV stand that we had bought. So, my brother came over and suppose to help the other brother move furnitures and it didn't happened that way. In the meantime it was nice that they all came over and not just for furniture's arrangements but to see Donna too. SO, I made a little something to share with all of you. Yes, Donna is doing good and still in a lot of pain. The Doctors will be taking the stitched off of Donna Tues. That all I know for now. Have a good day or week.

Whose Job Is It?

This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody's job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but realized that Everybody wouldn't do it. It ended up that Everybody blame Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.

A little poetry and Donna.

My mother recieved this book from the mail yesterday and I found its interesting. I do love poetry but I just can't write one. I guess most of us can't. Anyway, I just want to share it with you all and if you can't read it, click on images and it'll come up big. I haven't heard any words from Donna except she's out of ICU and into a room. I'll get to see her eventually. So, have a little patience and hang in there. Just like Donna herself. Have a good weekend until next time.

Some Snags


The other day when I went for lunch with my b/f we stopped at a local store and we saw these shirts. I thought Hmm. I can do that, and I did. Here are two and one is my second header.I had to make one for the Italians too. SO, enjoy.



Haven't seen Donna yet and hoping soon. She is out of ICU and into the outpatient/impatient area. This sounds like good news. She was asking about me when she talk to my mom this morning. She sound tired and still in pain. So, a long story short I haven't got any clue what really is going on.



PS I got the pages and elements from CJS CREATIONS.THE Italian one I made, the elements is from my pc. Creating Keepsakes Designs

Today is Donna's son birthday..

Oh boy did I ever mentioned that today is Donna's son birthday? Well indeed it is. Happy Birthday Nephew.. I don't know if Donna ever reveal his name so, I'm going to keep it for safe keeping. I know Donna haven't blog in awhile doesn't mean I have to do the work. I did it anyway.

I love to create things as long as I can ever remember. When I was little, I always be making things out of construction papers and making cards and keeping my nieces and nephews busy when I babysat them. Its really all started from my Dad's side apparently, because he's the artist in the family and that where our genes pool comes from.. Anyway I'll be posting some more. GOOD NIGHT and sleep

May you have warm words

on a cold evening,

A full moon on a dark night,

And the road downhill

All the way to your door.
- Mary Engelbreit

I haven't see Donna yet. Tomorrow will be a good day. I don't have to go to class on Friday. So, my nephew is off and he'll be taking me and my Dad to the hospital in the afternoon.

Some better days. Donna

Photobucket My nephew was over this afternoon and Donna is still in alot of pains. They might move her out of ICU tomorrow or in a few days. She is very hungry. I guess the feeding tube she is on is not helping her with her. I didn't get to the hospital because of driving arrangement. I do not drive, MOM still have the cold and got some antibiotic for its. My DAD went with my nephew this afternoon with my brother. They pick me up from class and my nephew was driving my Dad's car. IT was a nice surprise. My MOM gave him some of our dinner tonight. I don't know what his story maybe its for his lunch tomorrow. He told me that he'll take me to see DOnna and I got to go to school at 3:30 and he gets home from work about that time. SO, I told him maybe after class, I stop by. I wish I can get better offer. I know I can walk up there but its has been windy and cold in the 30's. I don't like walking all by myself in the rural suburb. Its had been a long time since I took the bus. I don't need it here. I do lives near the hospital. Maybe tomorrow my brother and I will walk up. We'll have to play by ear. Depending on the weather commute. I will do my best to get to see Donna anytime. We'll go from here and I do my best for posting for DOnna. I Really appreciate all of your comments and dedications. Take care and have a great night.


Everybody is praying for you DONNA.. WE LOVE YOU.. >>j<<

Still waiting....


Okay, I am not very good with words and I had to find some photos to express it.. Donna did had her surgery done this morning and is in a lot of pains. All I know that she is hanging in there. Her son stopped by my folks house and he also dropped me off to school on the way back to the hospital. I live minutes from the hospital so he didn't have far to drive. Its kind of like a circle from my house to the hospital. I will get better informations tomorrow and I will probably see her along with my Dad. My mom still have the cold and she doesn't want Donna to get it. So, I'm going from here an I"ll keep posting.

Thank you all for commentings and being such a good friend to Donna. This bloggerville communities is like one big family. Thanks for your support too..

Have a good night and yes, I will keep you posted.

Sunday funny!


It was Sunday morning when Bill, an avid hunter, woke up ready to go nail the first deer of the season.
He walks down to the kitchen to get a cup of coffee, and to his surprise he finds his wife, Judy, sitting there, fully decked out in camouflage overalls.
Bill asks her, “Ummm, What are you up to?”
Judy smiles, “I’m going hunting with you!”
Bill, though he had many reservations about this, reluctantly decides to take her along.
Two hours later they arrive at a game preserve just outside of Dallas, Texas.
Bill sets his overly anxious wife up safely in the deer stand and tells her, “If you see a deer, take careful aim on it and I’ll come running back as soon as I hear the shot.”
Jake walks away with a smile on his face knowing that Alice couldn’t bag an elephant…. much less a deer.
Not 15 minutes pass when he is startled as he hears a breakout of gunshots.
Quickly, Bill starts running back. As Bill gets closer to her stand, he hears Judy screaming, “Get away from my damn deer!”
Confused and frightened Bill races faster towards his screaming wife. And again he hears her scream, “Get away from my f*n deer now!” followed by another volley of gunfire!
Now, within sight of where he had left his wife, Bill is surprised to see a Texas cowboy, with his hands high in the air.
The cowboy, obviously distraught, says, “Okay, lady! You can have your f*n deer! Just let me get my saddle off it!”

Enjoy your day.

Starting in 2007, daylight time begins in the United States on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November. On the second Sunday in March, clocks are set ahead one hour at 2:00 a.m. local standard time, which becomes 3:00 a.m. local daylight time. On the first Sunday in November, clocks are set back one hour at 2:00 a.m. local daylight time, which becomes 1:00 a.m. local standard time. These dates were established by Congress in the Energy Policy Act of 2005, Pub. L. no. 109-58, 119 Stat 594 (2005).

Not all places in the U.S. observe daylight time. In particular, Hawaii and most of Arizona do not use it. Indiana adopted its use beginning in 2006.

In 2006, daylight time begins on April 2 and ends on October 29.
In 2007, daylight time begins on March 11 and ends on November 4. [New law goes into effect.]
In 2008, daylight time begins on March 9 and ends on November 2.

In 2009, daylight time begins on March 8 and ends on November 1.

Many other countries observe some form of "summer time", but they do not necessarily change their clocks on the same dates as the U.S.

Daylight time and time zones in the U.S. are defined in the U.S. Code, Title 15, Chapter 6, Subchapter IX - Standard Time.

History of Daylight Time in the U.S.
Although standard time in time zones was instituted in the U.S. and Canada by the railroads in 1883, it was not established in U.S. law until the Act of March 19, 1918, sometimes called the Standard Time Act. The act also established daylight saving time, a contentious idea then. Daylight saving time was repealed in 1919, but standard time in time zones remained in law. Daylight time became a local matter. It was re-established nationally early in World War II, and was continuously observed from 9 February 1942 to 30 September 1945. After the war its use varied among states and localities. The Uniform Time Act of 1966 provided standardization in the dates of beginning and end of daylight time in the U.S. but allowed for local exemptions from its observance. The act provided that daylight time begin on the last Sunday in April and end on the last Sunday in October, with the changeover to occur at 2 a.m. local time.

During the "energy crisis" years, Congress enacted earlier starting dates for daylight time. In 1974, daylight time began on 6 January and in 1975 it began on 23 February. After those two years the starting date reverted back to the last Sunday in April. In 1986, a law was passed that shifted the starting date of daylight time to the first Sunday in April, beginning in 1987. The ending date of daylight time was not subject to such changes, and remained the last Sunday in October. The Energy Policy Act of 2005 changed both the starting and ending dates. Beginning in 2007, daylight time starts on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November.

For a very readable account of the history of standard and daylight time in the U.S., see

Ian R. Bartky and Elizabeth Harrison: "Standard and Daylight-saving Time", Scientific American, May 1979 (Vol. 240, No. 5), pp. 46-53.

I can't believe it'll be tonight. So, don't forget to Spring Forward. Have a good weekend. Nancy

Cleaning Cleaning and more cleaning.


Today I went to my BIL house and clean. I promise him for weeks and last Thursday I came down with the cold then I was going to go Monday and I didn't feel any better. Now I am better. Uhh! I had been cleaning my sister and BIL house for years. I didn't mind because I do love to clean as long it not mud, slime and grease..lOl. So, when my sister passed few years ago, I told my BIL that he need any cleaning, I am here. I know he have two daughters and one is married and the other still lives at home. They were always busy bodies and I don't mind as long as no one else ask me to continue to clean their house.
Its all started when my formal neighbor had her second child and the Dr. told her to stay off her feet. I did made good money from her and her husband. So, my sister offer me as much one a few dollars off and that also included the drive fair. I don't mind and it was fair, because she would drive me back and forth to work. In the meantime, my bottoms are killing me because was cleaning his kitchen's cupboards and floor. No, I didn't get on my knee and scrub a dub. I also did his bathroom too. He had one of those jacuzzi bathtub that you can die for. I got to get in there and relax myself in One of these days I will.
My Mother isn't feeling so great herself. She had the cold before me and still have it. Also, her hips are bothering her. I feel so bad and I got home just in time for dinner so I can continue cooking while she sat in front living room and watch tv. My Dad isn't so great himself, his knees are bothering him as much as his hips. So, Mom kept a simple meal cream of tune over toasts with peas..YUMMY.. I love peas.. My BIL love its too. I wish I could have them over too.

In the meantime I'm heading off and everybody have a nice weekend..

Legends of St. Patrick's Day.

A History of Saint Patrick

Saint Patrick was born to Catholic parents about 385 in Britain. His father was a nobleman and a deacon. But Saint Patrick's privileged life came to an end at age 16 when he was captured by slave raiders from Ireland. With a large group of prisoners, Saint Patrick was transported to the then pagan island.
Sold as a slave to a king in the northeast, Saint Patrick had the lonely task of tending the pigs and sheep. In the midst of these harsh living conditions, Patrick's faith flourished as he turned to God in prayer.
After being held captive for six years, Saint Patrick heard a voice in his sleep say, "Soon you will go back to your homeland." A short time later, he heard the same voice say, "Your ship is ready."
Trusting in God, Saint Patrick set out on a 200-mile journey through unknown territory. When he arrived at the ship, the captain at first refused to take him. But Patrick prayed to God for help, and the captain changed his mind. Then began a lifetime of dedicating his life to becoming a priest. He envisioned returning to Ireland to teach the Irish about Christianity.
During his 30 years in Ireland, Saint Patrick founded more than 300 churches and baptized more than 120,000 people. Yet he still encountered much opposition, "Daily I expect either murder, robbery, or enslavement," he wrote in his Confessions. He escaped from 12 attempts on his life. Saint Patrick died a natural death on March 17, 461.
By the end of the 7th century, many legends had developed about Saint Patrick. One, of course, says he charmed all the snakes in Ireland and led them to the sea to drown. Another, probably the most popular, is that Saint Patrick used the three-leafed shamrock to explain the concept of the Holy Trinity to unbelievers. This is probably why shamrocks, now Ireland's national flower, are worn by the Irish on St Patrick's Day.

ST. PATRICK'S INFORMATIONS this is where I got the informations from feel free to check other stuffs and Irish China and The country itself.
