Errands ~ Pre-season NFL Scores ~ Herb Day

Good 57ยบ cloudy morning.

Yesterday.... mailed the boxes to Afghanistan (Casey), went to the eye clinic and Dave repaired my chewed temple (thank you Dude). Said he sees lots of glasses chewed on by dogs! Didn't charge me. Nice. Then to the clock/watch repair shop for a new silver watch band on my Kermit watch.

 It had this green one, but it was too much green~  Then to Safeway for sale items and canned tuna, Bruiser's fav.  Stopped at the camera shop and dropped off slides that they will convert to photos and put on a CD. Also found out about them cleaning the inside of my camera. He said it's inside on some (technical) part that is causing spots not the lens. Will take it in when I can live without my camera for 2 days! Dropped a bunch of stuff at Salvation Army store that I cleaned out of kitchen cupboards the other day. Last stop Staples for printer ink (with a $10 coupon! from recycling ink). Picked up a chicken wrap at Safeway, that was dinner. Also in Safeway there is a Starbucks, so for $1 I got the "new" orange spice iced coffee. Normally $2.30. Ick. Didn't like it and certainly would not pay $2.30 for it. Plain iced coffee is best, but Starbucks is tooooooo expen$ive~! Make my own. Came home, feet up, watched Patriots and Giants....

My Patriots, with the help of Tim Tebow, beat the NY Giants (can't stand Eli!!!) 28-20 last night.  YIPPPPPEEEEE.  I know, it's pre-season, but hopefully this win will keep Tebow from being rejected from the Pats!

Yesterday's scores... Colts 10 - Bengals 27, Lions 35 - Bills 13, Eagles 20 - Jets 27, 49ers 41 - SD Chargers 6,  Seahawks 22 - Raiders 6 !

More Herbs - Less Salt Day
No no no... not this kind of Herb! LOL
More Herbs, Less Salt Day promotes use of healthy herbs over salts.

Late August is a very appropriate time to celebrate this special day. The harvest of garden herbs is at a peak. There's nothing better than fresh garden herbs in your favorite recipes., the creators of this day, offer little information about this day, other than the fact that herbs are better for your health than salt........... How true.
