Size is very deceptive 

B: Do you want a cherry ūüćí pie?

Me: No

B: Too late I got one for you

Awww. ¬†He knows that cherry ūüćí pie is my favorite.


From this angle almost looks like a full size 8 slice pie. ¬†I promise it’s a mini. ¬†More of I can’t believe I ate the whole thing. ¬†When I go off the edge I really go.

Trying To Break My Record Part Deuce

Second, there is this musing … here is my first for this purpose … to break records.

I signed up for Nicequest because I am an American mommy between the ages of 46 and 55.

Why did sign up? FB told me too.

Really why? Because I like taking surveys. ¬†Who doesn’t? wink wink

No really why? Because I like free stuff and my nest is empty ūüė¶

I am earning something called shells (their point system) that I can turn in for prizes just for answering questions.  Before I was so impulsive as to sign up, I should have checked them out.  Mr. Google to the rescue.  Legit or scam?

Syndney Robertson says “Is Nicequest a scam? No. Are they legitimate? Yes, but we don’t recommend putting all your eggs in one basket, especially this one.”

Now I am going on the hunt for this thing we call swagbucks.  Maybe I need more than an icee intervention?

As always, more to come.

Tonight We Break Our No Candle Rule

We used to collect candles.  The original aroma therapy.  Vanilla was and remains my favorite scent.  However, years have passed since we have burned candles.

Some contributing factors are:

  1. One of B’s many accidents¬†was when he severed a tendon in his left hand while removing wax from a candleholder with a steak knife.
  2. I am in the insurance business.  Accidental fire by unattended candle as cause of loss is not as uncommon as one may think.  Personally I know of two families whose homes burned because of a candle.  In one a feline swinging its tail or swatting its paw bumped the candle.  In the other, a candle burning in the guest bathroom was left too close to a curtain.  No fatalities thank goodness.
  3. I read too much stuff, stupid stuff and I am a suspicious gullible person (oxymoron not be confused with moron). ¬†I read the wicks of today’s candles have some¬†sort of cancer causing filament. ¬†Immediately after reading the article, ¬†I started sneezing. ¬†Ah-choo, Ah-choo, Ah-choo and no more candles.

However 9/10/17 is National Suicide Prevention day and we will be showing our support. ¬†I dusted off our remaining candles and we will light them at 8 pm tonight. ¬†B has asked me twice now …¬†I thought you were lighting the candles.

And I will.  For no one is immune.  Seems everyone knows someone, who knows someone, who knows someone else.  And though your connection may be far removed or even at this time unknown, perhaps you will join us?

In need of an intervention 

After a year of abstinence, I went on the hunt for a Dr. Pepper icee to cure my craving.  Sacrebleu!!! My flavor was 86ed!!!

You know I must be hard up when I got a mango chili ūüĆ∂ instead.  I thought what the hell. I’ll give it a whirl.  Of course I made a BIG mess.  And almost burnt my forehead on the nacho cheese ūüßÄ when I bent down to take my first slip. 

Sacrebleu!!!!! That sucks.  

As always more to come

Light a Candle

This may be very sad to see, but I wanted to show you the tragedy of suicide. Suicide is not just a word. Suicide is real. Suicide is a precious life lost. Suicide is a death. Suicide is the loss of a loved one, a family member, a friend, a co-worker, a neighbor, a child, son, daughter, mother, father, cousin, grandmother, grandfather, a niece, a nephew and many more.

Here are some faces of beautiful people who lost their lives to suicide. Seeing actual faces, real people, pictures of people who lost their lives to suicide makes suicide more…
