Frozen (again) ~ Sun Yesterday ~ Live Worldwide Cams ~ Olivia Jon & BFF ~ Dress Up Your Pet Day


Good 28ยบ frozen foggy morning.


We DID get sun yesterday.
It was AWESOME!
Met this sign as I was leaving my driveway...

County crews were putting down gravel along the edge of the road.
I was in awe of the contrails against the cloudless blue sky!

Coming down into Medford and the view of Mr. McLaughlin was beautiful....
Went Costco (spent too much $) ..
. Cash and Carry (for peanut butter sugar free syrup for my coffee!) ...
and my doc's. Had to get a prescription from a "compounding" pharmacy and didn't get home until almost 6pm! Long day.
I received the following from my email pal Vivia. "Hey folks, I just found THE website for everyone. It's www.explore.org. It has live cams all over the world and something called the Zen Den which has very short videos of animals like dolphins, gorillas, pandas, ducks, eagles, etc. It also has dogs and cat cams.  Some of the underwater cams are just like having an aquarium in your computer. So, head on over to the site and find your bliss!"
This is a great site as it's filled with vistas and animals.
Here is another one... one of my favs... http://www.earthcam.com/
Hollywood Blvd:

NY Harbor:

Red Lodge Montana:

LOL... and San Francisco Bay:


And also, one of the BEST... worldwide panoramas:
Wait for them to load fully so they aren't fuzzy....
The Taj Mahal...
They go in a complete circle and you can make them full screen. So neat!
Today Jim Jacobs (LASD SR ret) wife Olivia is celebrating a birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY OLIVIA! Also Jon Armstrong (LASD ret) is celebrating. HAPPY BIRTHDAY JON! And Jeannie (Patterson...wife of infamous Homicide Det Bill) and I became friends in 2011. THANKS BFF, the friendship has been great! xo

   ... When I worked for UPS I delivered a package to him. He opened the door and we both had the same hairdo! I had a perm and was a curly top! He was soooooooooooo weird. Said I shouldn't have driven up his driveway. Wanted me to park down at the road (a good distance) and walk up. Ha!

Today I will again play catch up. Going to cook some scallops I got at Costco yesterday, with a lemony butter sauce. Mmmmmm...... let's see, green salad or mac and cheese to go with?
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Hump Day. Ciao.

Dress Up Your Pet Day

Dude gets that same look that Maggie used to, 
 "oh noooo not this again!"




Dress Up Your Pet Day gives you the opportunity to .... you guessed it......dress up your pet!
Some pets like to get dressed up. Others, want nothing to do with it. This day is an opportunity to really dress up your pet(s). Make something for them to wear.  Or, go to a pet store and buy an outfit. It's winter, so something warm is best.
Sorry, I don't have any ideas on how to dress up goldfish.
