March Madness

Is it just me or is time flying by? I can't believe tomorrow is the the first day of March already. With that comes spring cleaning(oh joy)and in two weeks we have to run the clocks up(double joy). Can you hear the thrill? I wish they would leave the clock as it is. I have enjoyed waking up with the sun but the time change will put me back to getting up before dawn. Ok,I got that off my chest. I have spent most of today making plans for my spring cleaning,what to keep and what to donate(parting with things comes very hard for me). I never need something until I get rid of it or so it seems. But it's time for a change,like moving furniture to new spots and rearangeing all the dust collectors and putting them in different areas and updating the window treatments. I like doing this,it's just getting started and finding the time but at least I have my list made out and that calls for shopping(shopping I love). So hopefully I will get on a roll this week and begin this project that will most likely take me until lawnmowing time to complete. Mowing,wow,I better stop now because I'm about to start complaining again. How long is it till Fall?

Who's Your Pick?

I really didn't get into American Idol last year(had my mind on other things at the time,I guess)but I got around to watching this year. There was/is some amazing talent this time. I have saw many leave that I wanted to stay but in the end my 2 favorites are still standing. I know alot of this is all about who is more marketable,which to me is so unfair after all this is a singing competition not a beauty contest. I prefer the one's that move me. Are you watching Idol this year? If so who are your fav's this time? Are you going to miss Simon? I will.
Do ya love Ellen? I do. Here are my favorites,I wish them luck!

This girl sings from the heart,love her!

Poker Player

I don't often hear jokes that I think are cute but this one caught my attention and I just had to share...........Yeah,I know,I have a warpped sense of humor!

Two couples were playing poker one evening. Jim accidentally dropped some cards on the floor. When he bent down under the table to pick them up, he noticed Bob's wife, Sue wasn't wearing any underwear under her dress! Shocked by this, Jim upon trying to sit back up again, hit his head on the table and emerged red-faced.

Later, Jim went to the kitchen to get some refreshments. Bob's wife followed and asked, 'Did you see anything that you like under there?' Surprised by her boldness, Jim admitted that, well indeed he did. She said, 'Well, you can have it but it will cost you $500.'

After taking a minute or two to assess the financial and moral costs of this offer, Jim confirms that he is interested.

Sue told him that since her husband Bob worked Friday afternoons and Jim didn't, Jim should be at her house around 2 p.m. Friday afternoon.

When Friday rolled around, Jim showed up at Bob's house at 2 p.m. sharp and after paying Sue the agreed sum of $500 - they went to the bedroom and closed their transaction, as agreed.

Jim quickly dressed and left.

As usual, Bob came home from work at 6 p.m. And upon arriving, asked his wife: 'Did Jim come by the house this afternoon?'

With a lump in her throat Sue answered 'Why yes, he did stop by for a few minutes this afternoon.' Her heart nearly skipped a beat when her husband curtly asked, 'And did he give you $500?'

Sue, using her best poker face, replied, 'Well, yes, in fact he did give me $500.'

Bob, with a satisfied look on his face, surprised his wife by saying, 'He came by the office this morning and borrowed $500 from me. He promised he'd stop by our house this afternoon on his way home and pay me back.'

Now THAT, my friends, is a poker player !

This Breaks my Heart!

Yesterday I opened my MSN home page and and saw this in the headlines. "Debarking surgery for Dogs","would you do this to keep from getting evicted"? Needless to say,this made me so mad that I didn't bother to read the article. Am I the last person to know about this? Has anyone else heard about this? Anyway,my answer was HELL NO!!! I'm very protective of animals and this breaks my heart to know that THE WORLD HAS GONE NUTS!! One thing is for sure,I know several people that I would like to "Debark",starting with the ones that came up with this! What do you think about this cruel procedure?
