  • How did I not know ?

    So, I wonder if anyone remembers me saying this awhile back;
    "I can't believe after all these years, and all the changes to everything else, they still haven't come up with
    a better way to package plastic wrap."

    Turns out it is only me that is dense.... maybe ?
    Was anyone else aware of the tabs on the ends of the box that you push in to keep the roll of plastic in place
    while you are pulling it out?
    I never knew.
    I stumbled upon this video the other day... and, um, felt kind of dumb...
    life hacks
    I really like the tie trick too.

  • Biden ? - Clinton ?

    Good Lord, help us... which could be worse ?

    There is more news today than I feel capable of catching up with.   erm smiley

     

    If congress thumbed their nose at the president... I say, it is the president that thumbed his nose at our
    government system first... and so, good for congress.

  • descending like a dove

    "Photographer Jón Hilmarsson had braved the Icelandic cold to witness the beauty
    of the Northern Lights many times before, but a recent photo shoot revealed
    some things he had never seen."
    descending like a dove

    I am incredibly moved by this photo.

    The next one is pretty incredible too... looks very regal, doesn't it?

    On Nov. 22, the 35-foot-tall St. Joseph Lighthouse was covered in ice, the earliest photographer Tom Gill
    can remember seeing this type of freeze. Gill loves being out in the cold, calling his ideal setting 30-degree
    temperatures and blue skies the day after a storm. (Tom Gill)

  • I really miss the days when you could just pick up a TV and take it to another room to watch
    without a zillion attachments and wires.

  • more questions without answers

    Can I be the only person that ponders over the fact that on the continent of Africa...
    a continent populated with black skinned people... there exists a place called Egypt,
    and a people far different from the black skinned people, and still also different from those of white skin color?

    and I wonder who was here first? I tend to believe the Egyptians are the most ancient of peoples on the planet...
    How did Africa come to be a continent of black skinned people?

  • High of 42 degrees tomorrow (Wed.) - yep, winter's definitely here.
