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

Hello Bloggers, Dows anyone Blog anymore? Crochet Pattern Sale


Hello Bloggers,
I know with all the social media out there I wonder how many still blog?
I know I am not here very often.  Time just does not allow it.  But I am trying to do better and increase my followers again. 
What's going on in my life this week?

I am working digenly on my SnC [Stitch n Chicks] Club Projet.  This year the group voted to do a "Temperature Scarf/Lapghan"  I chose the latter.  It's week 9 and I am on target.  We crochet 4 rows each week based on the average temps or if it rains the ladies cna use their "rain" color for that week.  I have chosen to do 10 colors and some of the ladies are doing 8 colors.  We all made our color chart hooking a strand of each color, the name of the color and brand next to the thermometer reading along with the temps to use with that color.  Our rain, muti colored yarn is the last.
As you can see we also keep a diary of each week and our feelings and why we chose certain stitches or colors.  My lapghan is coming along well I started with a white base which I will use around the lapghan when its done. :) Lots of rain over the last month. 

I have acquired some wonderful crochet and knitting magazines.  Many of these are out of print.  MY PBD Patterns blog will be selling them.  Be sure to go THERE and take a peek!

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

thank you Chatty

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

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

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...
