My dog has Arachibutyrophobia then. She will only eat a thin layer of peanut butter on a cracker. She doesn't like a lot of it like most dogs do. If there is too much peanut butter on a cracker she wont eat it. Ha... Weird dog I guess.

Hi Joyce, Jamie and Pitmom. I hope you all have a good day too. Looks nice here today. I hope it stays nice.

Hugs to all!

Did You Know this trivia?

In 1894 the first big Coke sign was found on the side of a building located in Cartersville, Georgia, and still exists today

The name of the famous snack "Twinkies" was invented by seeing a billboard in St. Louis, that said "Twinkle Toe Shoes."

Buffalo wings, got their name because they originated in Buffalo, New York

I always wondered why they were called "buffalo wings".

I just looked up satin because I wondered what it was made from. I guess some silk, man made or natural other fibers. I use a satin pillowcase for my hair. It isn't suppose to break the hair or mess it up too much.

Gloomy here today. But not cold. Suppose to be sunny tomorrow.

Jamie, I like peanut butter and jam sandwiches too. Our jam is home made freezer strawberry jam that John makes. It is soooooo goooood.

I'm going to have my grandson help me put up the last tree outside today. We're supposed to hit 60 degrees out! I'm trying to remind myself that 'what goes up must come down' and while it may be mild out now, when it's time to take everything down it will probably be freezing out!

I have a bud on one of my amaryllis!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hope everyone has a peaceful day.

Hi Pitmom, Joyce, Jamie and Cassandra.

I hope you all are having a good day today. Suppose to be partly sunny here I think. Not sure though, it is a little colder.

I been thinking about making a holiday wreath out of stuff at hobby lobby. I might go and see what I can do. While shopping. I need an excuse to go. Ha...

Joyce, I would love to send you some jam. It is so good when he makes it, tastes fresh. Better than cooked jams.

Have a good day all!!!

Oh and the satin pillow cases do help. I sleep on the same side all the time. My hair breaks sometimes. For some reason one side is always longer than the other. I am getting it cut tonight.

Hugs, Karen...

Hi F27, Jamie and Joyce...

I think it is going to be partly sunny here today. Yay. And gradually getting warmer. 50 by Monday and rain.

I painted a pic of Ian Anderson from Jethro Tull in the 70's in college. Came out real nice. He was playing his flute.

I hope you all have a good day.

Hugs, Karen...

@HT - I remember feeling bad for Alice Cooper because he had to absorb the wrath of the audience. Nothing quite like an room full of metal-heads scorned!

My favourite Jethro Tull album is and always will be "Songs from the Wood". I could never figure out what Anderson's lyrics meant, but his take on contemporary folk was so unique.

I love Songs from the Wood. I recently sold all of my vinyl albums. I know I will wish I didn't.

I had that multi paged album with many photos in it. Did they do "thick as a brick"? That is coming to mind.

Bungle through the Jungle. Now they are starting to come back.

Karen, I still have my vinyl albums after all these years. I have a stereo system old style with turntable set up in a bedroom upstairs, lol. I would not part with it because I love my old records. I later bought one of those decorative things that plays cassette tapes, cd's, albums & a radio, lol. Yes, I still have cassette tapes. I have it downstairs & the sound stinks compared to the system upstairs. You are so right, albums are making a come back. I have a lot of the old rock albums & now my daughter says don't get rid of them. I told her I have no intention of getting rid of them.

I have my top-of-the-line 1980's turntable, lots of vinyl records (including 33's, 45's, and 78's) as well as all my 70's, 80's & 90's mix tapes & cassette tapes, and various CD's. Spent some money last year to get everything piped into a set of wireless speakers, so now I have whatever sounds I want throughout the house!

Oddly enough, usually I enjoy the sound of silence and the cat walking around.

I still have a cassette player in my car, though -- that's where I actually listen to music! Weird, huh?

I have all my vinyl albums stored in our utility room - as much as I want to, I can't bring myself to get rid of them. I also have hundreds of CD's filling up various closets that I really should just junk. Between Spotify and Apple Music there's very little music that I'm unable to stream.

Except for Richard Cheese's Silent Night Club - the BEST Christmas album ever.

I don't know if my turntable still turns. I'll have to get some kerosene and see if I can fire it up one of these days. ;-)

Ha Ha F27... I miss my old stereo. I had it since the 70's. But I threw it out when the only thing that worked was the radio. I had a cd player and cassette. Now I listen on the computer but I got some descent speakers.

I do regret selling them. But the person I sold them too doesn't live far so I can always go and listen. Though I end up usually finding songs on the computer. I think that they are cool though. I loved the covers the most. Well not the most but a lot.

I hope you all have a good night. Love talking about older things. Except when I think about how old I am.

Hugs to you all...

Karen...

Mom's memorial is next weekend. I have spent the past few days scanning in photos and labeling them. I do a PowerPoint for the memorial, set to music. 1927--Baby to 2017--89 years old. Wow. I have the first and last slide set in my mind.

Other than these--tired of getting up early. Tired of watching the Senate debates.

Hello to Friday and all of you
Moderate temperatures....and sun shine expected for several days

You folks are certainly musical pros. I've enjoyed learning about your supplies and memories.

Hi Jamie, Myself and Joyce...

I drink tons of coffee. I just can't help it. I grew up with it. But my memory still isn't that good. Maybe it would be worse if I didn't. Ha....

Myself, Sounds bitter sweet. I am sure it is going to be a remarkable day for you. Bless you...

Jamie, I hope you are sleeping now and getting good rest.

Have a good day/night all!!!

Hugs, Karen...

PS Sunny I think today, it is coming up and brightening up the day.
