Song of the day: "I remember you." Skid Row
I finally got Doc to get a new computer. Of course it is a good one, it has 1 TB of hard drive. Ya baby. I have to move a few files from the old one and do some house cleaning. I figure tonight after the kids go to bed I will set it up for him (he knows about it, lol, but we just ran out of time yesterday). It is a gateway (like my laptop) we are not up to fooling with Mac's. Heck, PC is all we both know. I fooled with a Mac yesterday and thought my brain was on fry down. LOL. Dave... Scarlet V.... God Bless you Macies u. LOL. I lack the patience for it.
Doc has gone back home for the ball game and to see about his mother's health. He packed the car this morning and left. BooHooHOo. I miss him already! The girls made cards for his mom. When he was ready to go I went back to get them and they were gone, awwww he remembered! (I asked where they were and he said packed!) HEE HEE. I just love him some days! Well all days just some more then others.
Today is Thursday. LOL. I just set the TV on Sci-Fi and couldn't figure out why Eureka won't be on at 9pm. GRRRR. Will I ever get it right? LOL.
Bird is sitting on another clutch of eggs. We plan on taking them away on Sunday. Will this ever end?
I have a lot to say but I have more to do. LOL. Not fair. We get High Speed Internet and I am behind the eightball on things to do!

I reckon it's true and it came from a good ol boy
North and the South
The difference between the North and the South - at last, clearly explained....
The North has Bloomingdale's , the South has Dollar General . The North has coffee houses, the South has Waffle Houses . The North has dating services, the South has family reunions. The North has switchblade knives; the South has Lee Press-on Nails. The North has double last names; the South has double first names. The North has Indy car races; The South has stock car races . North has Cream of Wheat , the South has grits. The North has green salads, the South has collard greens . The North has lobsters, the South has crawfish . The North has the rust belt; the South has the Bible Belt . FOR NORTHERNERS MOVING SOUTH . .. .... In the South : --If you run your car into a ditch, don't panic. Four men in a four-wheel drive pickup truck with a tow chain will be along shortly. Don't try to help them, just stay out of their way. This is what they live for. Don't be surprised to find movie rentals and bait in the same store..... Do not buy food at this store. Remember, 'Y'all' is singular, 'all y'all' is plural, and 'all y'all's' is plural possessive. Get used to hearing 'You ain't from round here, are ya?' Save all manner of bacon grease. You will be instructed later on how to use it. Don't be worried at not understanding what people are saying. They can't understand you either. The first Southern statement to creep into a transplanted Northerner's vocabulary is the adjective 'big'ol,' truck or 'big'ol' boy. Most Northerners begin their Southern-influenced dialect this way. All of them are in denial about it. The proper pronunciation you learned in school is no longer proper ... Be advised that 'He needed killin..' is a valid defense here. If you hear a Southerner exclaim, 'Hey, y'all watch this,' you should stay out of the way. These are likely to be the last words he'll ever say. If there is the prediction of the slightest chance of even the smallest accumulation of snow, your presence is required at the local grocery store. It doesn't matter whether you need anything or not. You just have to go there. Do not be surprised to find that 10-year olds own their own shotguns, they are proficient marksmen, and their mammas taught them how to aim. In the South, we have found that the best way to grow a lush green lawn is to pour gravel on it and call it a driveway. AND REMEMBER: If you do settle in the South and bear children, don't think we will accept them as Southerners . After all, if the cat had kittens in the oven, we ain't gonna call 'em biscuits.

Today did not start out as a good day. Song of the day and quote of the day at the end of the blog. Even though it started out as a bad day with me yelling (a lot) at the kids, it did turn out quite well. The kids did very good (after Doc left for work) and we had a peaceful after we went to the store. I guess they just had a case of cabin fever! LOL. I think I will try to find the local park tomorrow and take them out while Doc is sleeping.
On July 4th, Casey Kasem announced that it was his last countdown. This sparked a certain memory for me. When I was in 9th grade, we lived in Coeymans, NY. It was an OK area. Across the street was a girl I wanted to be friends with but she thought she out classed me. Well, ok, maybe not but we were never great friends. We were OK friends.
This was the year when the "Pet Shop Boys" were in the top ten (OUCH). I was listening to the countdown (like a good teenager) on a Saturday A.M., anyway, he announced the winner was Ronelle. The girl across the street. I went across the street and congradulated her. I asked her if I could see the album when it came (he was suppose to sign a copy of that weeks recording and send her a CD - wow- a CD... imagine that) and she told me no. I was dumbfounded. Really? A lot of kids at our school didn't know what CD's were and less had ever seen one. Here she was getting a free one and wouldn't even let me see it.
CD's were not new to me at that point. I had a "boom box" with a CD player in it and had a Bruce Springsteen CD. My CD cherry popper. LOL. Wow. Can you remember your first CD?
Also in the news this week is about CD's. CD production is on it's way out and Big Box music stores are shutting down. They are being replaced by digital downloads. Wow. Really? I plan to keep purchasing CD's. How about you?
As far as purchasing goes; I bought a notebook today at the Dollar store! I am going to start working on my writing on the side. Seeing we don't have a great connection at the house right now. I heard back from Comcast yesterday and they said that we should have our house wired by August 6th. WOOOOHOOOO. Please bear with us! I promise when I can move faster than a megabite an hour, I will get to your blogs and hopefully catch up on reading and posting. LOL. As far as pictures go... you will have to wait. I can upload pic's from the internet but loading a pic to the net takes forever!
And that is about all I got for tonight.

Going to be a good day
Quote of the day: "In every power, of which taste is the foundation, excellence is pretty fairly divided between the sexes." Jane Austen (1775-1817)
Today is going to be a great day. I have felt like crap for most of the week. And I have been a grumpy old bitch because of it. LOL. Lucy has also been sick for most of the week. I started to feel better last night and then relapsed. I fell asleep on the couch for an hour or so and woke up with just a slight headache but feeling great. I wandered off to take my shower before bed and felt even better. I even joked around with Doc VIA text messy for awhile. I am sure he appriciated me feeling better!
Doc brought me home 4 tomatoe plants! WOoohooOooo. Can you smell that fresh sauce just a cooking away? You know it baby!
After we go to the store and get stuff for dinner tonight (and get it ready to cook) (and after I make the zuccani bread), then I am going to put the second coat of paint in the girls room. That will be a challange with the kids and animals running around.
I am thinking spag and meatballs tonight for dinner. LOL. We had Chix parm last night and I have sauce and noodles left over. A lot of noodles. LOL. I had to cook the entire box of noodles because I accidently DROPPED the dang box into the boiling water! Silly me. So, I figured if I cooked up some meatballs and sliced up the sausage, then hey, we will make great use of leftovers, eth? Or am I just being lazy. I could just freeze the sauce and make soemthing else, lol, but ... but... what? Shep Pie? That sounds good!
All the ambition in the world (in my mind) and I am not getting anything done.

Product review time
Song of the day: "Cornflake Girl" Tori Amos
Quote of the day: "People will buy anything that is one to a customer." Sinclair Lewis, US novelist (1885-1951)
The first product review comes to us from, "They gave us a republic". Please endure reading in full this authors letter to a general manager about a product.
"Dear Mr. Thatcher,
I have been a loyal user of your 'Always' maxi pads for over 20 years and I appreciate many of their features. Why, without the LeakGuard Core or Dri-Weave absorbency, I'd probably never go horseback riding or salsa dancing, and I'd certainly steer clear of running up and down the beach in tight, white shorts.. But my favorite feature has to be your revolutionary Flexi-Wings. Kudos on being the only company smart enough to realize how crucial it is that maxi pads be aerodynamic. I can't tell you how safe and secure I feel each month knowing there's a little F-16 in my pants.
Have you ever had a menstrual period, Mr. Thatcher? I'm guessing you haven't. Well, my time of the month is starting right now. As I type, I can already feel hormonal forces violently surging through my body. Just a few minutes from now, my body will adjust and I'll be transformed into what my husband likes to call 'an inbred hillbilly with knife kills.'
Isn't the human body amazing?
As Brand Manager in the Feminine-Hygiene Division, you've no doubt seen quite a bit of research on what exactly happens during your customer's monthly visits from 'Aunt Flo'. Therefore, you must know about the bloating, puffiness, and cramping we endure, and about our intense mood swings, crying jags, and out-of-control behavior. You surely realize it's a tough time for most women.
The point is, sir, you of all people must realize that America is just crawling with homicidal maniacs in Capri pants... Which brings me to the reason for my letter. Last month, while in the throes of cramping so painful I wanted to reach inside my body and yank out my uterus, I opened an Always maxi-pad, and there, printed on the adhesive
backing, were these words: 'Have a Happy Period.'
Are you f------ kidding me? What I mean is, does any part of your tiny middle-manager brain really think happiness - actual smiling, laughing happiness, is possible during a menstrual period? Did anything mentioned above sound the least bit pleasurable? Well, did it, James? FYI,unless you're some kind of sick S&M freak, there will never be anything 'happy' about a day in which you have to jack yourself up on Motrin and Kahlua and lock yourself in your house just so you don't march down to the local Walgreen's armed with a hunting rifle and a sketchy plan to end your life in a blaze of glory.
For the love of God, pull your head out, man! If you have to slap a moronic message on a maxi pad, wouldn't it make more sense to say something that's actually pertinent, like 'Put down the Hammer' or 'Vehicular Manslaughter is Wrong'.
Sir, please inform your Accounting Department that, effective immediately, there will be an $8 drop in monthly profits, for I have chosen to take my maxi-pad business elsewhere. And though I will certainly miss your Flex-Wings, I will not for one minute miss your brand of condescending bullsh!t. And that's a promise I will keep.
Always. . .
Austin , TX"
Next on the list is awsome Cheeseburgers from the home grill or frying pan. The name of the spice is "Gourmet Burger" and it is by Weber. ( the link goes to the product description at Sam's club, sorry the best I could do, I bought it at Walmart). Now, we tried this spice over the holiday and it was great. The burgers tasted a lot like the ones from Red Robin. Kept them juicy and gave them a little bite and a lot of flavor. I really liked it. Doc liked it. The kids liked it.
There was something else but I can't remember what it was. Sorry.
Edit - other product review. Pit killer.
I have been using the Dove , clinical strength, the one with the green label. Recently I picked up the one with the orange/yellow label by accident. I love the way it smells! Even when you get up in the morning... LOL... it still smells great!

I had some really witty things to say tonight. I have been reading that book again. So bugged out are my thoughts on it that I came up with a perfect story for a book. Ok I drempt an idea last night but I pondered and played with the idea in my head all day. I wish I had a college ruled notebook to scratch down some thoughts on. Yea, yea, I got the voice recorder and the computer, but I need pen to paper to map things. Ya know? I am an old fashioned writer like that.
But I am off to bed. Kids are sleeping. Lulu finally stopped puking and I have tooth picks holding my eyes open! I promise, tomorrow, I will get the cat blogging picture up. It is cute. They are cleaning each other in it.

Joke of the day submitted by Molly's daddy:
WOMEN'S ASS SIZE STUDY.
There is a new study about women and how they feel about their asses, the results were pretty interesting:
30% of women think their ass is too fat............
10% of women think their ass is too skinny.......
The remaining 60% say they don't care, they love him, he's a good man, and they wouldn't trade him for the world.
Hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th!

Joke of the day - From Reel Wm Fish. Fish On! -
Finally, after 40 years, someone has opened the vault and revealed the answer to a question that has clawed at our brains since the 1969 Woodstock album was released: What the hell were the lyrics to Joe Cocker's version of "A Little Help From My Friends?"He was so wigged-out and loopy on a multitude of drugs, no one has been able to understand his jarbled, mush-mouth version...until now!Click link below for the lyrics .. FINALLY IT'S CRYSTAL CLEAR! http://www.elwp.com/Joe%20Cocker.html
I did the "What type of Butt do you have" over at facebook. It was horrible. Worse then the boiled fish thing from Doc's blog! It basically told me to put surrender the cheeseburger and workout. Only it used graphic pictures and had a two paragraph story that went with it.
I am slightly addicted to face book. Funny because I never really liked it all that much BEFORE I got into playing Mafia Wars. LOL. GRRR.
I should take a picture of the kittens now, they are sleeping. Lulu is not sleeping and that is why I am up. I can't hardly keep my eyes OPEN. Urrgh.

Song of the day: "Surfin USA" Beach Boys
I have been duped. I have waited in angst for the perfect moment to snatch a book off of Doc's book shelf. It is called, "Republican like me" by Harmon Leon. Ummm hmm. It was going to be my WMD. Yes indeedy. For the life of me I couldn't figure out why a die hard democrat had a book by a republican. Was he trying to infiltrate the republican line? Was he (Doc that is) thinking about crossing over? I was so intriqued. SO, I did it. Yep. And I read the prelouge ... something I don't do on a regular basis... well OK, I never read the crap before chapter one.
THE BOOK IS ABOUT A DEMOCRAT PRETENDING TO BE A REPUBLICAN. Can you believe that someone would stoop that low?
OK, well, on the other hand, it is very comical and I really like it.
