GLORIES/ SPACEWALK UPDATE

Standard

Here is the latest pic of my glories, at this rate it will be all of AUGUST before

they get big.Sad. I started wayyyy too late! They are no more than about

two inches tall at the least. I have to water every single day it is so dry. NOT

a good year to try to grow them from a seed for sure. I am using the publish

feature of Spaces to get the photo on here. It seems to have worked.

For those of you who went to the SIMPSON site..they are overwhelmed and it

will take time waiting for some, using dial up for sure!! 

PLEASE pick the save to my computer feature as

sending via e-mail will sometimes only get a link sent and no PICTURE. I went 

back and did mine over again.. and may place it later on. HOT here and everywhere

else too. STAY COOL out there!!!

************************************************************

The SPACEWALK SPACE has finally been updated. MSN has not made

this too easy. I know you will love visiting this space written by SHERRY!

***********************************************************

P>S>  ONE WEEK TO GO!.. I am on the edge of my seat waiting for the big

day!!

 

HAVE A GREAT DAY!!

DOH .. I BEEN SIMPSONIZED…

Standard
While visiting one of our spacewalk friends..namely the
TELEVISION AND STUFF guy.. he put up a link to the site that is quite
popular now. The number one box office movie in the country this
past weekend was the SIMPSON MOVIE. Why oh WHY has this
CARTOON been around for so long???? 18 YEARS I Believe!
Anyway.. I sought out this website and sure enough the "machine" is
there to make you into a real citizen of the SPRINGFIELD..cartoon
land.  Here is what I think I would look like…Of course I had to
host the image because the whole photo thing here is NOT WORKING
again!!! Baring teeth ( Yes.. I re-did everything and turned off the pop-up blockers
got ZIP for the effort. Oh well maybe it will "feel " like coming back later.)

I sure had a lot of fun making up family members and friends!
I am sure you will love it too. Here is the link….
 
Hope you have a great day.. we are in for a week of very hot and humid
weather here in Michigan.. SUMMER weather for sure!!

WHOOPI ON THE VIEW

Standard
ANYONE who knows me, personally, KNOWS I am a big, big
Whoopi Goldberg fan.
img238/7856/whoopieky9.jpg
 
I have seen just about all of her movies and
try to catch every appearance on TV she makes, that isnt on
cable that is. I was so thrilled to hear today that she will
be anouncing her new job on ABC’S THE VIEW next week.
I sure hope that happens! She had told reporters earlier
in the year that she did not want that "gig", she was happy with
her own radio show on Sirius Radio. Either money talks or
she is doing Barb Walters a favor and was convinced, who
knows. SHE was my first choice and was reccommended by
ROSIE.. Whoopi is not without controversy in her lifetime.
She can hold her own with the best of them. I am so happy
she decided to make this move. I sure hope she sticks around
for a long time.
Another person is tapped to be on the panel at THE VIEW..
and that is the sassy talking ..SHERRI SHEPHERD..
img238/3017/sherrivu1.jpg
 
She is 40 and has been on the show many many times. She is a comedian
very much like Whoopie and Joy Behar. She has appeared on
numerous sitcoms and movies and is pretty outspoken in her opinions
as is Whoopi. If both of these women are hired for The View
it just might be worth checking it out in the daytime. I think
they both are fine choices. I sure hope this pair are signed for
at least a year. If they are ..well I WILL be watching WHOOPI!!
 
HAVE A  GREAT SUNDAY !!
 

ATTEMPTING POST..

Standard
Attempting this a third time today.. I think I should just give it
up and then I try it another way. Eureka!! It worked.. well well
I have outdone myself and then I think.. but you haven’t hit the
publish button yet.. heh heh. MSN has always kept us guessing!
 
Hot and sultry you would think we were living in the deep
south here. NOt much rain but what we got just left us
dripping with humidity. YUCK!   Hope it is cooler where
you are… or at least comfortable.
 
Going to Sam’s Club to try to find the large bags of Hershey 
Kisses we saw there a month or so back. I sure hope they have
them and we dont have to buy so many smaller ones. The thought
of more money going out makes us shudder. Those little boxes
hold more than you think they do and now we are wondering
WHO’S BIG IDEA it was in the first place. NO ONE is taking
credit for it at all. HAH isn’t that the way it is?
 
Well go out and have a great day and I HOPE THIS WILL
Publish after all this trouble….

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHERYL!!

Standard
TODAY IS CHERYL’S BIRTHDAY…
       img238/9643/bdaybp2.gif
You know her at spaces as PHOTONUT
IF anyone at all in this world deserves to have a
great day she sure does. I am continued to be amazed
by her posts and her wonderful photos that embrace them
and make them come alive. Please stop by and wish her
a great day!!  You will sure enjoy the visit there.
*********************************************
 MSN  Grrrrrrr
 
Boy they sure don’t make it easy on us do they?? I mean many of
you have said that getting to the photo thing is now a hassle.
I sure found that to be true when I opened my space to even
allow a photo on this page.. it was just blank and it never did
load. I cleared all the pop-ups and refreshed the space and did
just about everything I could think of…nothing happened. Sooo
I guess it is back to placing them inside the post with an
image host for me. Sometimes change is NOT GOOD. Maybe
it will get better.. but I bet we have to go through a lot and it
will take quite a while before it is over. Sad

COOKING REQUEST

Standard
Recently I got a request from a friend to ask if anyone out there
in blogland had used the hot pack method of canning for Green Beans.
She does not use a pressure cooker and wondered if anyone
had done their beans this way and HOW LONG DO THEY
KEEP THEM??? Books say one thing and people’s experience
say another. Appreciate any comment about that sort of
thing here.
 
My mother always used a pressure cooker. It took all day
to do her canning. She canned peaches, tomatoes, greenbeans
and pickles mostly. She made jelly and jams and froze
strawberries and blueberries. Those days are long gone
now. Us kids use to snap beans way into the evening 
watching TV so that the next day she could can
them up. I remember the smell of the fresh peaches
as we washed and peeled them in hot water. Those
were the days.  I miss the taste of the fresh vegetables in jars.
Today it is so easy to buy the canned beans for 29 cents
or cheaper that we don’t bother any more. We got rid
of our large freezer and don’t have the space for
frozen berries much either. Prices what they are
1.50 a quart for strawberries.. we eat them up pretty
fast now when we get them. 
 
Hope your weekend will be great. Here we sit another week
has passed and we still do not have the rain that everyone
else is getting. It is the weirdest thing. East or west of here
they have had over 2 inches lately. Looking for typical
AUGUST weather next week with highs near 90.
 
HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT DAY!!
