Check out this crazy mailbox holder we saw on a geocaching run in the Adirondacks
We need a new mattress and so I've been kind of keeping an ear out on what's good. I'm intrigued by the Sleep Number bed, but it seems people either love it or hate it. A traditional mattress is always probably a safe bet. Memory foam mattresses seem popular - and there's the side benefit of being able to put your wine glass down on it and dance around without it spilling, lol. I did read a funny tidbit about memory foam mattresses - apparently they're not the best for, ahem, "recreational activities" due to, ahem, "traction issues". Maybe just stick with a memory foam topper instead - comfort AND traction, lol!
I'm lovin the new Dallas show! I can't believe it, but it's just like the old Dallas - just as exciting, just as surprising, and it keeps you guessing. I was thrilled to see TNT ordered a second season.
My allergies have been so bad this spring & summer - in fact, I can't ever remember my allergies being this bad in my life! Something about this weather pattern must have caused something to proliferate that I am highly allergic to. Anybody else suffering worse than normal? I'm making the people at Benadryl very wealthy, lol....
Our go-to snack lately is microwave nachos. All you do it spread some tortilla chips on a microwavable plate, sprinkle shredded cheese on it and microwave for about 40 seconds. Voila!
Although I have been a Today Show watcher since I was a kid, I am so mad at NBC for how crappy they treated Ann Curry that I'm never watching the Today Show ever again! Plus I actually *liked* her as an anchor - it's Matt Lauer I can't stand!! I have no interest in the Matt Lauer/Savannah Guthrie mutual appreciation show. I now watch Good Morning America, which is really pretty good! No wonder they are nipping at the Today Show's heels.
A couple of weeks ago I posted a picture of the barely-detectable-with-the-human-eye pepperoncini that Panera Bread put on the Husband's sandwich. I sent that picture to Panera, and they apologized and sent me a gift card. I am in no way trying to get another gift card, but I had to tell them what happened on our next visit to that same Panera - the Husband ordered another Italian Combo and we decided to check it before we left, to see if they put normal size pepperoncini on it, and would you believe they left off the pepperoncini altogether?? AND they forgot to give him a pickle too! Someone is alseep at the wheel at that Panera.
We've got powdery mildew in our garden AGAIN. We've tried to keep our garden chemical free but this year we are resorting to whatever toxic spray I can find to get rid of that menace. We tried homemade "recipes" in the past for powdery mildew and none were very effective and we lost many plants. But not this year. Oh no, I don't care if I grow an extra toe, I'm hitting that powdery mildew with nuclear waste if that's what it takes to eradicate it!!!!!!!!!!
Bananagrams is one of my favorite games! Kind of like Scrabble, but no waiting for the other person to take their turn! Have you ever played it? What's your favorite game?
