Mom Did What!

She Confessed... Each year at Christmastime, and actually throughout the year, Mother was one to be reminding us about various rules of household safety. She taught us about turning the handles of cooking pans to the side so that they wouldn't get knocked over and fry or boil us, literally. Uh, not... Sign in to see full entry.

File Under: You Never Know...

Pat's post today about her friend from Mexico reminded me of a time when I was a new mother in a small apartment, one which I had tried valiantly to decorate on a budget of so little. Husband worked during the day while I was home tending the baby. I'd met another young mom two apartments down from... Sign in to see full entry.

Great Balls of - Sheets?

I know my clothes dryer is getting old. It's from 2003, but it still dries the clothes okay. Usually. But I have no idea why it is that the thing seems to have it in for the bed sheets. I put the sheets in there, one at a time, usually with pillowcases. Everything is separated. When the cycle is... Sign in to see full entry.

A Foil Tree with Blue Bulbs

"Oh, no, Dad!" That's what we all said the day Dad came home with a foil tree in a box. Though a bit trendy at the time, Mother wanted no part of it. We complained because there was no fresh pine scent like real trees had. Dad had also purchased a lot of blue ornaments for the silver foil tree. And... Sign in to see full entry.

Now the latest study reveals that drinking a few ounces a day of OJ appears to cut one's Dementia risk by 50 percent. My... Sign in to see full entry.

Baby, It's Wet Outside (Politically Incorrect?)

I'm going to post while I can here. Yesterday was a rainy day and I had to be up and out early (I don't "do" early well) to get a flu shot at the doctor's Wednesday morning flu shot clinic. If you recall, or even if you don't recall, I was ill with a bronchial infection when one normally lines up... Sign in to see full entry.

Old Tools

A 2.4 million year-old stone tool? That's what they're saying. It was found in Algeria, and changes the earlier view that East Africa was the cradle of Humankind. That's a big deal. So who made this tool? Here's a really bright answer from the pros: scientists think is was probably a descendant of... Sign in to see full entry.

Don't You Dare Call Me Again...

How Can I Be Calling Myself? It started at 6:30 a.m. - a heartbeat-starter that could trigger "the big one" - the landline phone ringing. Caller ID said, uh, us? What! We can't call ourselves, can we? I've tried it. You get the busy signal. Some of you more sophisticated Blogiteers might already... Sign in to see full entry.

Olive Oil is Better than Viagra?

Scientists from the University of Athens seem so, saying a weekly dose [whatever that is] could be better than Viagra... They also say olive oil can dramatically increase testosterone levels. Great, what about us girls, then? Oh, heck, I'm not going there. It all definitely food for thought, as they... Sign in to see full entry.

About Bikinis

So the word is that the modern bikini was introduced in 1946, and worn in the Miss World contest of 1951, right? Scandalous. But the bikini's history goes back to as early as 5600 BCE. Below is a picture from the Villa Romana del Casale on the island of Sicily. It was the summer place of a man who... Sign in to see full entry.
