More Clouds ~ Joe Terror ~ Dave & Nancy Perry ~ President Rankings ~ Different Colored Eyes


Good 53º cloudy morning.


In the morning some clouds yesterday ..

Then they all went away. We topped out at 83º.
 
 
Yesterday a quick run into town to ship some LLBean slippers back to them. I normally buy these clogs..  
because they are so comfortable, has an outdoor sole, and lasts forever.   But decided to try these mocs....
Unfortunately they were too tight. So sent them back (UPS pre-paid) and asked them to send me the next size up. They were tight but comfortable with the same shearling soft comfy lining....
 
Then a stop at the ATM and home.
 
Breakfast was two eggs cooked in the microwave in a porcelain dish with a saucer on top. Puncture the yolk with a sharp knife, I sprinkled on bacon salt/pepper, cook on high for 1+ minutes. Mine were 1 min 30 seconds. Cut up an avocado and topped with pomegranate mayo.

OMGOOOD! No calories in that mayonnaise ( http://www.waldenfarms.com/products/flavoredmayo.html ) and avocado is really good for you~!
 
Then lunch was low fat cottage cheese, fresh mozzarella balls, mozzarella stick, and an apple.
 
Today is high school friend, Joe Terror's birthday. Joe the husband of friend since Kindergarten, Linda Watterlond.  Glad you're catching up Joe!!! Hope you have a great day!!!
 
Today is also pals Nancy and Dave Perry's anniversary. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY kids!!! xo

Excellent research by a fine institution.
 
 
From a total of 44 U.S. Presidents, Obama has been rated as the 5th best, according to a study completed at Texas A&M University. The Public Relations Office at A&M released this statement:
 
"After almost 8 years in office, American academics have rated President Obama the 5th Best President in American History".
 
These are the results according to Texas A&M:
 
1. Lincoln and Reagan and Truman tied for first place
 
2. Sixteen Presidents tied for second place
 
3. Twenty-three other Presidents tied for third place
 
4. Jimmy Carter came in fourth, and ...
 
5. Obama was fifth

It was warm, about 80º, but Dude had to go out and lay in the sun.

When it was about 83º he decided it was better in the cool house...
 
Later, since it was Mojito Day I made one. Didn't have any fresh lime, so used bottled lime juice and lime Rum. Mmmmmmmmm.....

 
 
Brian saw this and sent it to me on a text.... so true!!! LOL.

 
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Tuesday. Ciao.

Different Colored Eyes Day


 
Different Colored Eyes Day has two reasons to celebrate.  First of all, it celebrates diversity of eye color. Wouldn't the world be boring, if everyone had the same color of eyes?
 
Secondly, it recognizes an eye condition called Heterochromia. People who have this trait,  have two different colors of eyes. One eye may be brown, while the other is blue.  Famous people who have Heterochromia include David Bowie, Jane Seymour, and Christopher Walken.
 
Your eyes are an important part of your appearance. They are also important in communications. When you look into your lover's eyes, you need to like what you see. Making "eye contact" just wouldn't be the same without different colored eye. Isn't it great that we have a variety of eye colors to set us apart from one another?
 
Eye colors include:
Shades of brown
Shades of blue
Shades of green
Black
Gray
Hazel
 

Celebrate Different Colored Eyes Day by taking particular notice of the eye colors of everyone you see.
