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

What to do with those Stray Socks?????

I absolutely love this idea!!!! Take a stray sock and make a the sock bun. It’s an easy way to create lots and lots of curls or wear it as a bun on top of your head! Wow...who would of though????. Yes, you will need a sock for this! If I can just make a recommendation, don’t use a white sport sock as if you have dark hair it may pop through and you will see it, unless you like the look??? A  darker sock, or better yet, one closer to your hair color works the best...
Here is the YouTube video it made me want to try it and it does work!

And some funny things to do with those socks:
  1. Make a :Stress Sock" just fill it with Mashed potatoes [the instant ones right from the box, not the potatoes made lol] then when you feel a little stressed just squeeze it! Be sure to tie the open end after you add your DRY instant mashed potatoes. :) 
  2.  Put a sock in your mouth before entering an elevator...takes practice, then tell everyone as loud as you can with the sock still in your mouth that you just got socked in the mouth!!! lol
  3. Want to have a party and invite lots of people? Give everyone you want to invite a sock, only one and then tell them they will get the other one when they come to your party. and when they get there make it a game....put all the socks in a pile and the first one to find their match wins a prize...or make up enough little $1 store prizes for everyone to choose from when they find their sock mate...lol...fun game I just thought of huh??? hmmm I think I am going to play this one at my next event...
Have the church address printed on them. Then, hand them out, one at a time, as you're visiting in the community. Tell people that they'll get the other sock if they come to the service this week!

Wow look close at this art work. What is it???? 
Just unbelievable

 Wood Chip Artwork by Sergey Bobkov
54-year-old Sergei Bobkov has patented a unique technique of creating amazing sculptures out of Siberian cedar wood-chips.
“It’s not very interesting to do what others can. To create something out of nothing in a completely new way is far more inspiring”.  This is how Sergei Bobkov explains the unique form of art that he created.  He says many people compare his artworks to taxidermy, because they both look so much like the animals they replicate, but Sergei believes they are as different as light and darkness. Whereas taxidermy is all about death, his wood-chip art symbolizes life.
This resident of Kozhany, Russia , has developed his very own technique, that prevents wood-chips from falling apart in time.  After creating about 100-150 chips, from 2-3 inch long cedar stick, he puts them in water for several days.  Then, making use of his surgical precision, he carves the chips into any shape he needs.
Sergey has been doing this for some time now, but he has only created 11 wood-chip sculptures. That’s because just one of these incredible artworks takes around six months to complete, at a work rate of 10 to 12 hours a day, with no days off.  Sergei Bobkov focuses on wildlife creatures, and he studies their anatomy for months, before starting work on a sculpture.
Even though he was offered $27,000 for his wood-chip eagle, Sergei’s Bobkov declined, saying his art is not for sale.

What's in a Barcode? Photos of Interest

Here's a way to find out if what you are buying is from 
the USA or another country?
Can you differentiate which one is made in Taiwan or  China ?

If the first 3 digits of the barcode are 
  • 690, 691 or 692, the product is Made in China
  • 471 it is Made in Taiwan . 
Some products do not show consumers the "MADE IN" wording, so you don't know from which country it is made. 

However, you may now refer to the barcode - remember if the first 3 digits are:

  • 690-692 ... then it is MADE IN  CHINA
  •  00 - 09 ...  USA  &  CANADA
  •  30 - 37   FRANCE
  •  40 - 44  GERMANY
  •  471 ...  Taiwan
  •  49 ... JAPAN
  •  50 ...  UK
