If it weren’t for trouble, then I would have a pretty boring life right now. The poison ivy, or whatever it was is healing now, but realllly slow . I found the calamine lotion really worked the best. Hope to get rid of that plant that was a big bother very soon. Thanks to some research and comments I will try a gallon of VINEGAR on it and see if that will kill it. Round up didn’t seem to phase it much. The temps in the past day have been near 95 so maybe the heat and  the vinegar might do the job.

My wonderful laptop “Miracle” CRASHED last night around 9 PM..There is only one survivor.. ME. I will survive. It’s only a machine..yeah we all know how it feels though. REGRETS we have a few.. Like why the heck we didn’t back up our photos better or why we didn’t make paper copies of things or at least make a folder on our e mail for things so we could get to them? I backed up some but this last year or so not so much. Seems it is always something. What she was will never be again.

Has anyone any experience with “CLOUDS” or folders that are provided within
Google e mail or other e mails? I sure wish I had MORE placed in there than what I do. I use Google documents a lot and I am sure glad. Now I have NO access to  a whole lot right now. Appreciate your patience and comments on what you know..every little bit helps a person out. 

The above photo I saw on Pinterest..I GASPED at the idea of two pies inside two layers of cake iced with cream cheese frosting.. ahhhh can you say..heart attack waiting to happen??  It’s called a “PIECAKEN”…well I know I sure won’t be eating one anytime soon.

  1. I wouldn’t even taste that. It looks yucky. Two pies in a cake? Silly.

    I knew calamine would do best. It’s the old tried and true.

    I have poison ivy killer by Scott I think it is. I don’t use Round Up on poison ivy. You need to get specific for poison ivy with your choice.

    I back up in iCloud but it’s an Apple Macintosh thing.

    Sure jope that the poison ivy on you dries up. Don’t cover it. I noticed you seemed to have an adhesive bandage just peel-off look to that photograph.


  2. I have an Amazon Cloud that I saved all my music to—just in case. All the books I’ve bought on my Kindle are also all saved in the Cloud. It is a 1 GB free. If you want more space, you can buy it, but 1 GB is quite big, especially good for photos too. Go to and check it out. You can also put documents for free in, which is accessible from any computer that has your name and password. I have saved many of my manuscripts this way too. That way, I can retrieve them if ALL else fails. You can also make anything in Dropbox accessible to another computer (a friends’) if you want to, and only have it be that one file. It’s a good, safe way to transfer documents. I haven’t backed my computer up in ages either, but I do have all my writings on various sticks in various places. Hope you can get your computer repaired soon. Thanks goodness for the library, huh. Have a “cool” rest of the week. We have a nice cool down today and tomorrow before it starts to heat up again.

  3. So sorry about your laptop, and the poison ivy. Stay cool, and well, and know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
