Annoyances And Off The Wall Discussions

Hosted by Maggie ^O^
Group active since Fri, Apr 11, 2014

We all get annoyed from time to time. Is there something you need to get off your chest?

What is annoying you right now? What has annoyed you in the past that never got settled?

Do you have a helpful suggestion for other members who are annoyed by something?

Do you have something off the wall you want to talk about?

Come on in, grab a drink, pull up a chair and vent your annoyance, or add your off the wall topics ..we are here to just listen, participate or to help if you want it.

We aren't here to solve world problems but you never know, we just may stumble onto something !

Please be nice and respectful.

Do not come into this group with a hidden agenda because we will not tolerate bullies or posers.

Nothing political ... it never ends well.

There is a wonderful group already established where you are welcome to share any and all of your political cartoons or complaints and everyone is welcome to join God, Guns, and Constitution which is located at this link -

Thanks for understanding !

It's A New Week !

Good morning all.

It's Monday - again !

I hope you had a nice weekend.

We are enjoying a much cooler morning today and have hopes that our temperatures stay south of the 90's today.

I've decided that I prefer my hot days to be in the 70's - not the 90's and 100's :)

I Inherited Recipes

Lots and lots of recipes.

There is a collection of recipes my Mom had and my Aunt has had them, and a box of other things, since Mom died in 2001.

Recently I received the box of stuff including the whole collection of recipes.

Very interesting stuff !

There are hand written recipes .. some on paper, some on napkins, some on envelopes.

There are old recipe pamphlets. There is one from the 40's and a couple from the 50's and a few from the 60's.

There are recipes from the 50's through the 90's.

The funny thing is .. I don't remember eating most of those things.

So I've come to the conclusion that my problem of hoarding recipes is a genetic thing that I got from my Mother LOL

It's fun to go through these .. some are truly disgusting but others are clearly quite tasty.

A lot of them are cut out from Sunset magazine and the local papers.

There are even a few that had store sale ads on the back of the recipes .. those were some crazy good prices back then !

The majority of them seem to be appetizers and drinks. I am getting the impression my Mom was a closet party animal LOL

It's been fun to go through them and as time goes by I will get them cataloged, copied and share a few here.

Peek A Boo

Izzy loves to play peek a boo.

In the mornings she hides under her little blanket and peeks out to see if I am looking. I stand in the middle of the room and say "Where did Izzy go?" She slowly peeks over the top of her blanket then as soon as she sees me looking she ducks down .. then she slowly peeks .. then down again and finally she jumps up and runs to me. It's the cutest little game ever !

This morning she had her annual vet appt. She was nervous and decided to hide in her carrier. Then she wanted to play peek a boo ... I was able to get a couple of pictures .. she just cracks me up. Oh and she played peek with the Dr too .. what a character !

She got a clean bill of health .. 3 vaccines and a new RX for carsick pills and doesn't have to go back until next year.

Woo hooo !

It's finally here.

I hope you all have a great one ... and if you are in the big heat wave - try to stay cool !

Personally .. I don't care much for the 100's and high humidity ... I want my 72 degree days back LOL

It's Friday !!

We made it !

This week is drawing to a close and it's going to magically turn into the weekend !

It's going to be a very hot one here. We are in that heat wave that is moving across the country and it's going to be dangerously hot.

Right now it's not quite 8am and it's already 85 and we are headed for 105 with high humidity today :(

If you are going to be affected by this .. be sure to stay hydrated, try to stay cool and please check on your elderly friends, family and neighbors.

H & H!!!

HOT and HUMID here!!! We are in the midst of a massive heat spell! I was watching out the window yesterday and commented to Ron, this heat is similar to a blizzard in winter. No one was moving, our Main St. was dead, even the birds were too hot to eat! At least during a blizzard the feeder is busy.

We did inside things. We deep cleaned the bathroom and the utility room. Ron did an excellent job on detailing the washer! I don't think it's been that clean since it was delivered! I mixed up a new spray for the shower/tub. You warm a cup of vinegar add an equal amount of blue Dawn dish soap, in a good spray bottle. Spray down the shower/tub and let it sit for 1 hour. Then rinse it off! 2 notes: 1. IF you have breathing issues, let someone else do this. Run the exhaust fan if you have one! It is potent stuff!!! 2. After 1 hour rinse it off. Rinse it very well, this stuff is slippery! I did have to scrub a few spots besides; but for the most part it did rinse clean. I am ashamed to say, I've really let my house slip the past few years, between a sick hubby and 2 knee surgeries it's gotten a bit grungy here. NO MORE!!! Told Ron if we had company yesterday eve, we were entertaining in the bathroom! lol He was so relieved no one showed up!
