f27, seen alice cooper in the 90's, he just came again
supporting motley crue finally effort, which i hear was sh#t
and alice smashed it, as he does. his 90's show, was the most epic show,
choppin' his head off, seen a doco where he says the blade misses him by an inch.
not the loudest, but clean.
sister took more boxes this morn, and we got a table in as well.
the room is becoming less.
be well.

Hello to Saturday...

Moderate temps today....just about 'average'. I do have some outdoor cleanup needed, so today should be the day,

Hope all is well for everyone.

One-third pound stalk of broccoli contains more vitamin C than 204 apples

It is true that eating extremely large quantities of carrots can cause skin tones to change to yellow orange.

Mel Blanc (the voice of Bugs Bunny) was allergic to carrots

So Bugs Bunny (voice) was allergic to carrots. Ironic...

I bought some broccoli and have learned an easy way to cook in microwave. We can't eat it all at once so you can do smaller amounts and it is so convenient. I put it in a glass bowl. Maybe a tablespoon of water and cover with saran wrap. Poke a few holes in the top. Microwave for four minutes. It comes out perfect every time. It is nice when you just want to do one head. Where I buy them, they put three heads in a package. That way I can have a little here and there.

Warmer here today too. Suppose to be 47. And 50 on Monday. I will take it. A little cloudier here today but that is okay.

Have a good day Joyce...

Hi Jamie, I hope you are getting good sleep. That is all I can see on this page is Jamie and Joyce, though I know others have posted so Good day to Everybody!!!

Hugs, Karen...

It requires 63 feet of wire to make a Slinky toy

Slinkys were invented by an airplane mechanic; he was playing with engine parts and realized the possible secondary use of one of the springs

Before 1928, yo-yos used to be called bandalores in the United States

Good morning all...

Suppose to be another nice day though it is foggy this morning. But back to winter on Wednesday. Storm moving in I think, or lake effect...

I hope you all have a good day today.

In Britain, one out of every four potatoes is eaten in the form of french fries

Every year, Burger King restaurants prepare over 950,000 pounds of bacon for their breakfast customers

When Burger King introduced the Whopper Sandwich in 1957, it cost only thirty-seven cents

The average earnings in 1957 for year-round, full time workers over the age of 14 was $4713 for men and $3008 for women. Wow.

So in 1957, an average man could buy 12,737 Whoppers.

Average earnings in 2017 are reported as $59,069, today's Whopper is $4.19 - so you could now buy 14,097 Whoppers if you had no other expenses.

In other words, today's Whoppers are cheaper!!! lol

WOW! Actually cheaper? Don't let them know, they will raise the prices. I think a whopper here is more than 4.19. But they have deals like 2 for 6.00. So I think it averages out.

Joyce, Jamie and Lynnwood. I hope you all have a good day. Rainy and cold here today, snow by Wednesday. Not looking forward to it.

Hugs to all...

Joyce, you and Lynnwood gave me my laugh for the day, actually 2 or 3 of them, which is pretty good for a Depression forum. You two should take that act on the road.

Lynwood's telling us how many Whoopers you could buy for $4,000 finished me off.

So, did you know:

That Burger King came out with the very popular song of "Have It Your Way" in 1974.

The jingle was Burger King’s response to McDonald’s Big Mac song.

The lyrics proclaimed that Burger King would serve you a customized product, unlike McDonald’s at the time, (you can have whatever toppings you wanted on a burger, or even plain) living up to its slogan Have It Your Way.

“Hold the pickles, hold the lettuce;
“Special orders don’t upset us.
“All we ask is that you let us know....
“(Chorus) Have it your way, have it your way! Have it your way at Burger King!”

HI pitmom,, Tim Tam, Joyce and Lynnwood...

Love to see you all post.

Pitmom, I feel the same way today. I don't know what it is so I will blame it on the weather. Woke up completely on the wrong side of the bed this morning. I feel like the safest thing I could do is go to bed. I am better than I was this morning, but it seems like feeling that way kind of sticks with a person. I hope you feel better soon...

Hugs, Karen...

Good morning this Tuesday

A warm day expected....temps in the mid 60's, but it's going to rain.
Oh well...nothing is perfect.

Hope y'all have a good one

The Snickers chocolate bar was invented in 1930

Kit Kat chocolate bar was introduced to the market in 1935

Due to sugar shortages to make candy during World War II, movie theatre owners turned to popcorn, which is now the best selling snack at movie theatres today

Joyce I love chocolate, many do. I use to like dark chocolate, now I like milk chocolate.

Interesting on the chocolate bars.

Have a good day...

Good morning Wednesday
Hope you're feeling better today, Karen...have some chocolate. I prefer milk, but dark is more beneficial
Hope you are also feeling better, Jamie. Except for your neck and shoulders you seem very healthy.

The start of a cold snap today...well, it's been nice...shouldn't complain
What's the weather like around you folks?

Snow, snow, snow... That is what is happening today. Saw therapist yesterday. Good session.

I shouldn't complain either. It has been nice up until now. So windy that the snow is going sideways. Ha...

I hope you all have a good day today. Joyce and Jamie... I hope you are both feeling well. Jamie, I use what is called a bed buddy. It can be put around your neck. I don't know if you are familiar with it, but they are around 20.00 or less here. I think it would help pain in shoulders and neck. You heat it in a microwave and wrap in a towel and put around your neck. Check it out....

I hope all is well for everybody.

Hugs, Karen...

Joyce:

You said, "Google receives more than 200 million search queries a day, more than half of which come from outside the United States."

Then you said, "Approximately 97.35618329% of all statistics are made up."

Well, if "97.35618329% of all statistics are made up" how do we know that statistic is not made up?

Joyce, you know I take things like this seriously.

You promised not to do this to me anymore, not to confuse me. And there you go again. You haven't changed.

Tell me you haven't done all of your Christmas shopping. Leave me some hope.

Hehehe TTT
Good response...
Take whatever I submit with a grain of salt...it's all a 'guess' these days
Don't remember promising you anything, Tom...but my brain is old

The only thing I'd like to promise is some entertainment to mask our pains.

Nope, no Christmas shopping done, and none will be done...as the holiday is for others
