Cloudy (again!) ~ Santa Barbara Earthquake ~ WD-40 ~ Mint Julep

Good 46º cloudy morning. A year ago today it was 47º and cloudy. May is predictable. Come on June!

Heard from Deeewayne Honeee Pberger that there was an earthquake 4.6 in Santa Barbara....


The FedEx guy was here yesterday. I had on my USMC sweatshirt and he asked if I had been a Marine. I said, "No, my husband and son and Italian son." He said his mom was a Marine, his brother, and his son is now. His son is in Afghanistan for 18 months. I told him to write down his address and my friends and I will send a care package for him to share with his buddies. He said, "Really?" I said we'd love to. He's going to put his son's address in my mailbox. I said we'd send his favorite things... he said, "Junk food"! LOL OK, then.


More WD-40 uses:
In the kitchen, use WD-40 to remove stubborn food stuck to your refrigerator shelves. A few sprays of WD 40 will also help separate glass casserole dishes.

Remove paint, mascara and scruff marks from your tile floor.
For kid-related emergencies, WD-40 can remove chewing gum from carpets and hair, as well as take crayon off walls.
