~Happy Birthday to Walter Lantz~4/27/1900

His most successful creation came in 1940 with Woody Woodpecker – the zany bird whose memorable laugh became an instant success with the American theater-going public.

He passed away in 1994 but the cartoons he produced and directed still seem as fresh and funny today as they did when they were first released.

I loved woody woodpecker and always laughed like him when i was younger. Great cartoons that I love to still watch...Hey I'm still kid at heart:))~


~Support the Firefighters~

Help your neighborhood raise money for YOUR local fire service organization during Baskin-Robbins 31 Cent Scoop Night.

For the 4th annual event, Baskin-Robbins is partnering with National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. The Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation will donate $100,000 to the non-profit organization.

Locally, Baskin-Robbins is providing an opportunity for firefighters and store owners to come together for an event of fun, smiles and fundraising for local fire service organizations. On Wednesday, April 28th, 2010, Baskin-Robbins stores across the country will hold 31 Cent Scoop Night from 5-10 pm to honor America's firefighters.

Baskin-Robbins will reduce prices of small ice cream scoops to 31 cents* and create an opportunity for customers to donate to local fire charities. Read more about the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation at www.firehero.org

I have fallen but I was able to get up:)lol

Ok I can admit that I am clumpsy sometimes, but this time it wasn't my fault:)
My daughter had her friend comin over last night and our dog, demon~which is a pit~bull (the biggest baby ever) always barks and attacks the glass doors if he one...didn't hear car doors and you just walk up on the back porch and two if he don't know you! like any dog does, right?

Well I knew they were outside and he beat me to the door so i took him by the collar and was trying to put him in the other room until she came in and he knew she was here, well it was easier said than done! Let me tell ya!

I got ahold of his collar and my hand was in there pretty tight, and he tried to run from me in the hallway, well at that point he was takin me with him...yeah it was funny but when i fell into the washing machine and hit my forarm it wasn't funny anymore, I also hit my knee as i tried to catch myself, which i didn't do a very good job at.......(lol) My arm started to swell some, it didn't really hurt but it was burning alot.....so I thought i should go have it x~rayed!

Its alittle hard to see the bruise but its a big one:)) Ouch!
That was a whole new adventure in its self I tell ya!

To make a long story short my arm was not broke but i did hit it good and it's gonna be sore and of course bruised good for afew days....that I can live with!

What bothered me the most was while i was in the urgent care, waiting in between when the dr. and the aid was comin in to do what they needed to do, I kept hearing all the people working there talk about all the different patiences there and the reasons that they were there to be seen and then all the negative things they all had to say about each individual! I couldn't believe my ears, this is a professional place and these people are there for there help and i was very overwhelmed by that! So as soon as i get the survey in the mail i am for sure going to fill it out and tell them what i think of my visit to there urgent care and that i will not be returnig for nothing!




1. Where are my glasses I cant c?

2. If wishes were horses then my barn would be full:)

3. I'd like to see my entire family get together for a family reunion.

4. When I was a teen, I thought that i could conqure the world and here at the age of 36, i am a mother to three teens, a husband, a grandbaby and in college, I haven't conqured anything yet:))lol.

5. One of my mother's favorite sayings was "I'M TELLING YOUR DAD"

6. I'd have a hard time doing without DR.PEPPER!! I'M ADDICTED:)).

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to GOING TO RIDE IN THE SEMI WITH MY HUBBY, tomorrow my plans include GOING TO THE FLEA MARKET WITH THE FAMILY and Sunday, I want to GET MY HOMEWORK DONE AND READY FOR SCHOOL ON MONDAY!

Ok..I really need to educate myself on this day! I didn't even know it was earth day and I really don't know why we have earth day or anything to that affect..Sorry I know at my age I should know i guess.....right? Or are there others out there that are lost with me.....am I not alone?:))

From grassroots beginnings in 1970, Earth Day—which celebrates its 40th anniversary today—has blossomed into a global tradition.
The campaign aims to make Earth Day's 40th anniversary the moment when the green generation comes together to address pressing environmental concerns, such as the global freshwater crisis and global warming.

Why is April 22 Earth Day?

One persistent rumor holds that April 22 was chosen because it's the birthday of Vladimir Lenin, the founder of the Soviet Union.
Earth Day is now celebrated every year by more than a billion people in 180 countries around the world, Rogers said

Earth Day Network is pushing the Earth Day movement from single-day actions—such as park cleanups and tree-planting parties—to long-term commitments.

What to Do on Earth Day?
Hundreds of events are held each year across the world on and around April 22 to mark Earth Day
Among the highlights for the 40th anniversary include the first community garbage cleanup in Kolkata (Calcutta), India, which does not have garbage-collection service. Rogers said that event is a stepping-stone in the establishment of an environmental movement in India

What did you do today or what do you plan on doing for earth day?

I think i will go along side the road and clean up the trash that people throw out as they drive down the road by my house.....Littering! Off I go:)) This is part of earth day right? lol!

Alright.....Well i have learned alittle bit more than what i knew of EARTH DAY!
Sorry my post may be boring but hey! I learned something today:))

Happy Blogging to all!


Rachel Ray Skillet Review

Rachel Ray porcelain nonstick cookware is just what I needed in my kitchen. Not only for the beautiful colors but for the nice easy clean, durable nonstick interior, the grippy silicone handle~which is oven safe to 400'F and for the fast, even heating.

If you have been in my kitchen, then you would have said thank goodness for csn online stores for this opportuntiy to review such a wonderful product at a great price.

This twin pack of 8" & 10" skillets come with a limited lifetime warranty
Suitable for solid plate~ceramic~gas~radiant ring and halogen.

These skillets are a easy breeze to clean and are light weight. They live up my expectations 100% and plan on purchasing the whole set. I use them with my everyday cooking and my husband is just glad I finally found a pan that I can't burn.

Rachel Ray products are available for a good price on csn.com

Looking for a corner tv stand? Check out csn stores. There are lots to choose from and great prices.



And like always I'm late:))...(giggles)
