Just FYI, if you are in a foreign country and your English sucks, don't leave comments. If you comment in a foreign language I will delete it.

I don't print comments from people who want to make statements about their site or products....only if they are personal friends of mine. SO stop sending comments.

Here is an example of one I received:  
"If you use these loans sagely and use the money price, for instance the equipoise,
interest charge per unit as advantageously as requital dates.
Others could invest in a business concern that is on a decline with for hunt appropriate lenders." (a link with a "UK" address was included!)   UNLESS you are a friend of mine.........DON'T COMMENT!   Delete Delete Delete!

My friend Trish has written a letter to Wal-Mart headquarters and I think we all should do the same! Not a fan of Paula Deen, but this singling her out for a remark years ago is STUPID. Because she used the "N word" they are dropping her from the Food Network, taking her product out of Wal-Mart and making her feel like she's committed murder. So wrong.

Here is T's letter:
I am a huge fan of Wal-Mart!
I am originally from Arkansas and am so proud of Sam Walton for such a success story.
I am writing today because I learned that you have severed ties with Paula Deen.  I am so very disappointed in your brand for doing that!
Now here is the most important question:  Do you still carry those obscene RAPPER CD's where they use the N word non stop and denigrate women constantly? From what I see on your website you do!  Now where is the fairness of this?
Paula is NOT a racist but those rappers are!  Fair is fair and I don't believe I will be stopping in at your store until I read you are doing business with Paula again!
Thank you,
city, state
To leave a comment with Wal-Mart Corporate Office:

Wal-Mart also carries all the music of Lil Wayne, the creep who stood all over the Stars and Stripes while singing the National Anthem - his version!

Published on Jun 18, 2013:
Rapper Lil' Wayne was filmed stepping on an American flag while shooting a video for his song "God Bless Amerika."
So true......


Dinner last night was a salad.... chopped celery, carrots, green onions, sweet peppers, grape tomatoes, avocado, and hard boiled eggs..... oh, and lettuce!
Dressing was lemon juice (in Mad Housewife bottle), orange sauce with ginger, mayonnaise, garlic seasoning and garlic powder. Whisk all together until right consistency.

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Thursday. Haircut day! Ciao.

National Orange Blossom Day

Cultivated from orange trees, fragrant orange blossoms are widely used in cooking, flower arranging, and perfume making. Blossoms are commonly used to make honey, tea, marmalade, and to flavor bakery items. With so many useful applications, one may quickly assume that today’s holiday is a celebration of this multi-faceted flower. However, National Orange Blossom Day actually honors the Orange Blossom cocktail, a bittersweet drink consisting of gin, sugar, and orange juice.


2 oz Gin
1 tsp superfine Sugar
1 Orange slice

Mixing instructions:

In a shaker half-filled with ice cubes, combine the gin, orange juice, and sugar. Shake well.Strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with the orange slice.
