I like things around 68 Joyce, unless it is damp as Lynn said, then I like it higher. about 70. I keep the truck at 68 too. Sometimes lower if I have my coat on.

No snow yet Joyce, none that stuck anyway. Yay!!! So far so good. Though it is damp and dreary here today, suppose to be partly sunny tomorrow but a high of only 41.

I hope you all have a good day today. Jamie, I hope you feel better and become a bit less complex. I hope you can reach the shrink.

Take care everybody. Have a nice weekend.

Hugs, Karen...

Hi all.

I'm comfortable around 70 degrees. I turn my furnace back at night though. In my jammies and under the blankets, usually with one cat and a dog or two, anything warmer than say, 62, is too hot! As you know, I live in a mobile home...toaster oven in summer, ice box in winter. The furnace is toward the back of the house, in between the bedrooms, so they get really hot. The living room and kitchen are usually colder. If it's really bad out, I have a plug in oil filled radiator for the kitchen so the pipes don't freeze!

It is gorgeous out today! Warm in the sun, cooler in the shade, but just a 'hoodie' kind of day. My daughter reminded me that I had spring flowering bulbs to plant, so I took an hour outside and did just that. Finally found 'snow drops'! More chiondoxia and pushkinia. Some small iris, some white daffodils and some peach double daffodils, too! Last, but not least, a variety of hyacinths.

There is new growth on some of my amaryllis. I've set aside some orange tulips and yellow daffodils to try forcing again inside.

Hope everyone has a peaceful day.

We're all in a similar temp zone....nice to know. I might try 62 at night instead of 64...AND go to a higher temp when it's 'damp'.

Wish I could use the o symbol next to the numbers. My Firefox browser doesn't accept that entry....maybe I should return to Chrome

I didn't know that rain contains vitamin B12. Isn't that the feel good vitamin? That is interesting!!!

I will make sure to get out next time it rains. It is sprinkling today, the rain is cold...

Hi Pitmom, your flowers sound beautiful. I got some daffodils that are kind of white and they are fragrant. They came from North Carolina.

Hugs to all.

Firefox will let you use the ° - the secret is to bring up a weather website in the other tab and do a cut/paste on the symbol! I use Firefox and that's what I do!

(I'm sure there is also a secret code to be able to use if from the keyboard, but I've always found the cut/paste just as simple.)

Nice day this Saturday...gonna hit 70 ° this afternoon...wow.

Lynwood thanks for advice about the degree symbol °. I tried the Alt technique...but copy/paste is easier.

Good morning to everyone... including Jamie, Karen, Pitmom, Lyn

Did early grocery shopping for tooth extraction supplies needed this week.
Enjoyed seeing the cart that gave me beeping problems was still out of commission.

Project for today is clearing leaves off my deck. I've converted my leaf sucker to a leaf blower...that should be less labor than sweeping with a broom

Expecting heavy rain tomorrow then windy on Monday....More leaves expected too!

Boy your temperatures are a lot better than ours. Only in the 40's here, but not raining. Maybe the sun will peek out later on today. I hope...

My favorite ice cream is French Vanilla. I use to be a chocolate fan but learned to like the French Vanilla much more... Interesting fact Joyce...
Hubby picked up leaf blower at a yard sale. He loves it. We have a lot of big maples and the leaves are everywhere.

I hope you have a lovely Saturday Joyce. And everyone. Take care all...

Hugs, Karen...

could have sworn you had snow Karen, guess you are to far south.

Yesterday was slammed with severe pain, with weather popping up to 70's today, kicking again, tomorrow dropping back down.....

Global warning is doing me in..... thank you know who for deluded

Rainy Sunday....but pleasantly warm, at least for now.

No plans to 'do' anything today.
Tomorrow is a day I'm kinda glad to have arrive. Discomfort is turning to 'pain'.

Hope the rest of you are comfortable......

Crayola Crayons were invented by cousins Binney & Smith in 1902 and first offered for sale in 1903.
There were originally only eight crayons in a box and they sold for five cents

Mrs. Binney used the French words for chalk (craie) and oily (oleaginous) and combined them to create the word Crayola.

Today, there are over one hundred different types of crayons being made by Crayola including those that sparkle with glitter, glow in the dark, smell like flowers, change colors, and wash off walls and other surfaces.

Very interesting Joyce, I always did like to color.

Thanks for sharing. I enjoyed reading...

Hey Jamie, Hope you are getting a good sleep.

Joyce, here's one:

The 35mm camera was invented in 1925 by a man who had health problems, but liked to hike, and wanted a light weight camera he could put around his shoulder, one which had a small negative but a big picture.

He also worked with helping to make movie cameras. Movies use 35mm film, and project it to 20 x 30 foot screens. Why not project 35mm still frames to 5x7, 8x10 inch pictures?

The camera was called the Leica, and was the introduction to modern photography.

New Jersey weather report...rain, rain and more rain! Over 2 inches expected. Now...wait for it...wind coming. Strong wind. So, the rain softens up the ground, then strong winds and we'll most likely have trees down and power lines down. Not quite as bad as Sandy was, but 5 years later on the exact same weekend!! My agitation and anxiety are through the roof!

Anyway...on to better topics...neighbor's costume turned out well. I'm waiting for her to send me pictures. She was the only 'sea witch' amongst the other witches! No prize, but, everyone was surprised she was so dressed up!

Still working on grandson's costume. The 'hair' is going to be the most complicated part I think!

Bought the boxed mix for Red Lobster's cheddar bay biscuits. Can't wait to try it out!

Cleaning up the garden on a rainy warm Sunday. Everything is ripped out but a small summer squash under a greenhouse cover. I took soil samples, and have tomorrow to make any adjustments. The lock goes on the gate Wednesday until next March.

It was sad to rip out my chard--it was the first thing I harvested in April and the last here in October. But, there is always next year!

In 1873, Colgate made a toothpaste that was available in a jar

Leaving the water running while brushing your teeth can waste four gallons of water in a minute

Colgate faced a big obstacle marketing toothpaste in Spanish speaking countries.
Colgate translates into the command "go hang yourself."

OMG Joyce, I didn't know Colgate meant that... Ha Ha...

Thanks again for sharing. And no snow yet, none that has stuck anyway. Was a little warmer last night, no frost.

Jamie, Myself, Pitmom and TimTAm, I hope you all have a wonderful day today... Myself, my garden was taken up a few weeks ago. But we are colder here.

Take care all...

Hi all.
Joyce, love the 'did you know's?'!

Spent the day trying to figure out how to do the character's hair for my grandson's costume. Finally decided to go with my original plan and cut up a cheap faux fur rug that I bought at the $5 and below store. I've attached it to a knit hat. Then it was time to make the 'hoop'. I cut it out of a piece of foam core board and then wrapped it with blue duct tape. Then, it was time to chalk out the outline of the 'coat' onto the vinyl that I had bought and cut it. Next up was applying the different color electrical tape to outline the edges and make the designs. There's only a little more outlining to be done and then go to bed and wait for tomorrow! If anyone is interested, the character is "Whis" from Dragon Ball Z.

I'm always a little sad to put the garden to bed at the end of the season. Good garden hygiene is important though, as so many pests and diseases can overwinter. Herbs can be grown on a sunny windowsill and I still have my 'indoor' garden. Cat grass is fun to grow in a pot. You can cut it with scissors and get that great scent! Seed catalogues and old issues of garden magazines help fill in the dreary days for me as well.

Good morning this Halloween Tuesday

A bit tough for me today. Had the three teeth pulled yesterday, so munching breakfast is a no-no.
Almost didn't get it done. My blood pressure was off the charts. SO hight it was almost double the norm. Not sure what's going on....but concerned.

Anyway...hope the rest of you have a 'reasonable' day

Happy Halloween to all!!!

We got about three inches of snow so far this morning. Everything is white and it is coming down heavy.

Joyce I do enjoy the "did you know" posts. I didn't get a pumpkin this year.

I hope everybody has a good day/night for Jamie.

Still got snow on the ground Joyce. And it is snowing again. We'll see, I was hoping it would melt as it was the first official snow.

I hope everybody has a wonderful day today...
