Happy Halloween

We are still on the boat and will return home tomorrow. We avoid being home during Halloween as there are hundreds upon hundreds of kids that are bussed into our neighborhood. We contributed for many years and now we just enjoy a quiet evening on our boat. Hubby and I are going out for dinner tonight and that's a mighty nice treat for me. So what are you doing for Halloween?

Grown-Up Words

A group of kindergartners were now in the first grade. Their teacher wanted them to be more grown up since they were no longer in kindergarten. She told them to use grown up words instead of baby words. She then asked them to tell her what they did during the summer.

The first little one said he went to see his Nana.

Mo and Babs

I received this email from a blogging buddy that many of you know and love. I feel so bad for her and we had a close friend that was burglarized last weekend that lost his computers and all his data. But Babs has lost her blog entirely.

 Back up your blogs folks. Back up all your important things. Anyway, here's the message from Babs.

Rock Bottom

Signs you may be drinking too much:

You lose arguments with inanimate objects.

Job interfering with your drinking.

Sincerely believe alcohol to be the elusive 5th food group.

Thursday Thoughts

The weather is changing and I'm not so happy about that. Yesterday I was in shorts and a t-shirt and today it's long pants and a jacket. I'm not a cold weather person. At. All.

Hubby makes me smile. All the time. He's my very best friend.

Have you noticed how positive people are wonderful to be around.

Wednesdays Question

It's Wednesday so that means it's question time. There isn't a right or wrong answer to this question as everyone has different opinions on any given issue.

So here's this weeks question: What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

Amen!

Who says you can't teach dogs to do the most amazing things.

 Dogs are just the best.

It must have been very difficult with all that food right under their noses.

Entrecard

Entrecard is a major headache right now. It's very frustrating trying to get your drops done and then purchasing ads when the system keeps going down. Most of the time I'm just hoping I can get all 300 drops done. You lose your rankings when you don't get all of your drops done.

Comment Game

It's time to play the comment game again. We are on our boat, but that's no surprise to anyone.

Here's how it goes: I'll start the game off at the bottom of this post by choosing two words or phrases, like coffee or tea, and which ever one you prefer you choose. You can also explain why. When you have done that you do two new words or phrases for the next commenter to choose from. Feel free to come back as often as you like. Just have fun. If someone derails the game will one of you put it back on track? Thanks.

Technology

This is incredible technology. You can't hide from it!!

It's almost unbelievable that such technology exists. It uses your IP address and finds the exact location of any internet user in seconds. It uses a sophisticated time based algorithm to do so.

Proper Wages

The Montana Department of Employment, Division of Labor Standards claimed a small rancher was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an agent out to investigate him.

GOV’T AGENT: “I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them.”

RANCHER: ”Well, there’s my hired hand who’s been with me for 3 years. I pay him $200 a week plus free room and board.

Punishing Your Human Being

Sometimes, despite your best training efforts, your human will stubbornly resist bending to your whim. In these extreme circumstances, you may have to punish your human. Obvious punishments, such as scratching furniture or eating household plants, are likely to backfire--the unsophisticated humans are likely to misinterpret the activities and then try to discipline YOU. Instead, we offer these subtle but nonetheless effective alternatives:

Wisconsin

I'm told you have to be from Wisconsin to get this joke. Well I'm not from Wisconsin and I got it. I thought it was pretty funny too.

The year is 2016 and the United States has just elected the first woman president, who happens to be from Wisconsin. A few days after the election the president-elect, whose name is Susan, calls her father and says, 'So, Dad, I assume you will be coming to my inauguration?'

San Francisco

We had three fabulous days in San Francisco at South Beach Yacht Harbor @ Pier 40. There was a walking tour, shopping and lunches out almost every single day. We had a potluck dinner on the dock the very first night and had spaghetti, salad, garlic bread and tiramisu. It was a fabulous meal combined with some good wine and great company. Do you get the feeling that we eat a lot? Okay lots of wine too. Yes we do, but in moderation.

Benicia and Beyond

We had a fabulous time in Benicia with an excellent dinner at the Union Hotel on Friday night and another great meal at Benicia Yacht Club on Saturday night. The weather was beautiful and the water was calm. Sunday morning we head toward Corinthian Yacht Club. The photograph above was our view for a very long time. There are always sailboats and that skyline is breathtakingly beautiful. I see it every year from the water and it still makes me smile.

Wordless Wednesday

Wordless Wednesday (WW) is a visual blogosphere phenomenon. Whereas blogs (web journals) are primarily about "words" bloggers love to dress their journal entries with imagery. WW is a simple blog post featuring a photo which conveys a message that speaks for itself without using words.

Bay Cruise - Part I

Om September 28th we left home and headed for our boat. We had a full afternoon of getting ready to leave for Pittsburg, Ca the next morning to begin our annual bay cruise. It was very warm and we got everything loaded on our boat and hubby fired up our little runabout (a 185 Sea Ray) and he headed to Ebony Boat Club while I drove to Ebony Boat Club to pick him up.

The Bay Cruise

We are finally home from our bay cruise. We had a fabulous time. We enjoyed our friends, some really great food and enjoyed all the sites.

Two of the best parts of the cruise was visiting the Corinthian Yacht Club and watching the Blue Angles practice in San Francisco. More to come. It's good to be home.

Qualities

"With the qualities of cleanliness, affection, patience, dignity, and courage that cats have, how many of us, I ask you, would be capable of becoming cats?"

About Cats

"One reason we admire cats is for their proficiency in one-upmanship.

They always seem to come out on top, no matter what they are doing, or pretend they do."

We're on our bay cruise and currently are in South Beach at Pier 40 in San Francisco. The view of the city at night makes me smile. From my boat that is.

I would hate to live in a big city. I've never really enjoyed the traffic and the rude people. Why does everyone have to be so angry in the big cities? No one smiles and for the most part everyone is rude. I don't care what a city has to offer that's a big turnoff for me.

Cats
