Someone once said -

"There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for the people who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living." Amen

Pretty - Funny - and Just Thinking

MIA with Some Funnies & Pretty Stuff

Hello all it has been awhile since 
I have posted...
with FB it seems that blogging got left 
behind a bit.  :( 
I do miss my blogging friends.  It seemed so much more personal and enjoyable. I like to use FB for posting my photos.  That way I can share with family and friends anywhere.



thank you Chatty Crone

FIND THE PROBLEM IN EACH PICTURE ~ HOW SHARP IS YOUR MIND? 
Colgate has created a very ingenious advertising campaign to promote their dental floss, but before I explain to you the main detail of these images, I will let you appreciate them quietly ~ 




All right, now that you had time to quietly observe the images ~

In the first one you will now notice that she has one finger too many in her hand.

In the second one a phantom arm is floating there.

In the third one the man has only one ear.
Thank you Ann - I missed all of them!

The Common Cold

We often wonder how is the Common Cold Spread? I always thought you had to be around an ill person. But, as you read further you will see it is not always the norm.. WASH your hands often and carry little hand disinfectants in your bags to use when you go shopping or anywhere else.
The common cold is spread in 2 ways; by direct contact with infected areas from a contaminated surface or by inhaling the airborne germs after someone sneezes or coughs. Person-to-person transmission often occurs when an someone who has a cold blows or touches their nose and then touches someone or something else. A healthy individual who then makes direct contact with these germs can become infected, often after their contaminated hands make contact with their own eyes or nose. A cold virus can live on objects such as pens, books, telephones, computer keyboards, and coffee cups for several hours and can thus be acquired from contact with these objects.

What are the symptoms and signs of the common cold in adults, children, and infants?

The symptoms of the common cold typically begin two to three days after acquiring the infection (incubation period). Symptoms and signs of the common cold vary depending on the virus responsible for the infection and may include the following
    • nasal stuffiness or drainage, • sore or scratchy throat, • sneezing, • hoarseness,• cough, • watery eyes, • low-grade fever, • headache, • body aches, and •fatigue.

    Does it have anything to do with exposure to cold weather?

    Though the common cold usually occurs in the fall and winter months, the cold weather itself does not cause the common cold. 

    What is the difference between the common cold and influenza (the flu)?

    Many people confuse the common cold with influenza (the flu). Influenza is caused by the influenza virus, while the common cold generally is not. 

    Are antibiotics a suitable treatment for the common cold?

    No. Antibiotics play no role in treating the common cold. Antibiotics are effective only against illnesses caused by bacteria, and colds are caused by viruses.

    When should a physician or other health-care practitioner be consulted?

    Generally, the common cold can be treated at home and managed with over-the-counter medications. However, if you develop more severe symptoms such as shaking chills, high fever (greater than 102 F), severe headache, neck stiffness, vomitingabdominal pain, difficulty breathing, chest painconfusion, or failure to improve after 10 days, you should consult your physician

MErry Christmas to All and Happy Crafting....



Hello my fellow bloggers. It has been awhile. I have been extremely busy with my groups and then in OCt I hurt my shoulder/arm and was unable to be on the computer too long. :(

 Alas my blogs suffered!  but I am back....so as to what the photo above it?????

They are called "Notes to Self" socks... have you heard of them??? Really cute....as some of you know I always get something funny, interesting, different for my adult children and this year for Christmas I got them all these socks....

The socks send messages to the wearer... with an explanation on the hanging card.....really clever...

PhotoFor one of my parties and with my family I wore these light up Reindeer glasses too cute!

Now to crafting I made 2 new decorations this year....one was these really fun Christmas tree combo 

aren't they so cool? Pretty Ditty has a tutorial for them. I loved them and got so many compliments even from the kids which is unusal... they think I craft wayyyy too much!! LOL but really I want to make more for gifts for next year. I added gifts under the trees.. I thought it was a nice touch!

Then I saw this fun Santa wreath and had to try it. This was the easiest wreath to make... REALLY... try one you will be surprised and it looks so terrific.. see She Knows for the tutorial...

Christmas was a fun day at my house with my family. Everyone came and everyone got along! WOW!!! Isn't it true how all family gatherings there is usually always something to talk about for days afterwards????

So how was your Christmas? Did you make anything special? I would love to hear about it!!!

                                     Till 2014 Happy New Year to All!!!!!

We"re off to See the Wizard the Wonderful Wizard of Oz!!!


Lions, tigers, bears

One of all time favorite movies was and still is The Wizard of Oz. It has become an annual ritual over the holidays to make sure I watch it at least once or maybe even twice. I was sadden when I asked my granddaughters if they liked it and they said they had never seen it???? What I said? But they were not really interested in seeing it.  I guess it has fond memories of my childhood linked to it. When I was little my mom and dad always went over my favorite Aunt & Uncle's house and played cards.  It was more than one time, but I specifically remember it during November when I would sit in front of their black & white [oops showing my age] and watch the notorious all time classic,  The Wizard of Oz, while they were laughing and arguing over their card game in the nearby kitchen.  I lived in the east and it was cold outside and you could hear the wind blowing and the windows creaking from the force. I loved it there and felt warm and cozy with my pillow in my pj's watching my movie all curled up in my big fuzzy blanket. 

I am sure we all have our favorite childhood memories, but this was the one that made the 1939 movie, The Wizard of Ozbecome my favorite holiday ritual.

The story of Dorothy and her friends on the Yellow Brick Road to the Emerald City has become an icon to many baby-boomers, but I wonder has it lost its appeal to the next generation or what about the next one??? 
It is, perhaps, the closest thing I have today to a perfect fairy tale. I love the part when the strong wind hits Kansas and you hear Dorothy yelling "Auntie Em! Auntie Em!" Or what about the theme music for Miss Gulch's demonic bicycle ride or the march of the Wicked Witch's palace guards?  And my favorite of course, "Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!" I am also partial to the phrase "I have a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore,". 
Wizard of Oz:  Dorothy is unconscious while the wicked witch flies by
[source]
The movie has been remade, made into a play and referenced in dozens of movies, television shows, and books. And who doesn't love Elton John's 1973 release Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, but none have come close to the imaginative power or lasting mind imprint of the original movie. 

Did you know that Buddy Epsen was originally suppose to play the scarecrow? He actually started to play the part when he became deathly ill and had to be hospitalize from the silver paint in the Tin man's make-up. 

Even Judy Garland who was made legendary after playing Dorothy was not the 1st choice. Originally MGM wanted Shirley Temple, but alas she was obligated to to Fox and Over the Rainbow [my favorite version was done by Israel Kamakawiwoʻole's] most was cut out of the movie. Think of how different that would be today??? The song has become and American culture known song. 

W.C. Fields was casted to play the Wizard, but as he was well known for his difficulty to work with, the studio changed their minds.

I do love the this movie and ALL its characters too. If you get a chance it will be playing this year on TMC [Turner Movie Classics
