When you have to visit a public bathroom, you usually find a line of women, so you smile politely and take your place.
Once it's your turn, you check for feet under the stall doors. Every stall is occupied.

Finally, a door opens and you dash in, nearly knocking down the woman leaving the stall.
You get in to find the door won't latch. It doesn't matter, the wait has been so long you are about to wet your pants!
The dispenser for the modern "seat covers"(invented by someone's Mom, no doubt) is handy,but empty.
You would hang your purse on the door hook, if there was one, but there isn't - so you carefully, but quickly drape it around your neck, (Mom would turn over in her grave if you put it on the FLOOR!), yank down your pants, and assume " The Stance."
In this position your aging, toneless (God I should have gone to the gym!!!) thigh muscles begin to shake
You'd love to sit down, but you certainly hadn't taken time to wipe the seat or lay toilet paper on it, so you hold "The Stance".

To take your mind off your trembling thighs, you reach for what you discover to be the empty toilet paper dispenser. In your mind, you can hear your mother's voice saying, "Honey, if you had tried to clean the seat, you would have KNOWN there was no toilet paper!" Your thighs shake more.
You remember the tiny tissue that you blew your nose on yesterday - the one that's still in your purse. (Oh yeah, the purse around your neck, that now, you have to hold up trying not to strangle yourself at the same time). That will have to do. You crumple it in the puffiest way possible. It's still smaller than your thumbnail.
Someone pushes your door open because the latch doesn't work.
The door hits your purse,which is hanging around your neck in front of your chest, and you and your purse topple backward against the tank of the toilet.
"Occupied!" you scream, as you reach for the door, dropping your precious, tiny,crumpled tissue in a puddle on the floor, lose your footing altogether, and slide down directly onto the TOILET SEAT. It is wet of course..
You bolt up, knowing all too well that it's too late. Your bare bottom has made contact with every imaginable germ and life form on the uncovered seat because YOU never laid down toilet paper - not that there was any, even if you had taken time to try.
You know that your mother would be utterly appalled if she knew, because, you're certain her bare bottom never touched a public toilet seat because, frankly, dear, "You just don't KNOW what kind of diseases you could get".

By this time, the automatic sensor on the back of the toilet is so confused that it flushes, propelling a stream of water like a fire hose against the inside of the bowl that sprays a fine mist of water that covers your butt and runs down your legs and into your shoes.
The flush somehow sucks everything down with such force that you grab onto the empty toilet paper dispenser for fear of being dragged in too
At this point, you give up. You're soaked by the spewing water and the wet toilet seat.
You're e-x-h-a-u-s-t-e-d.
You try to wipe with a gum wrapper you found in your pocket and then slink out inconspicuously to the sinks.
You can't figure out how to operate the faucets with the automatic sensors, .....so you wipe your hands with spit and a dry paper towel and walk past the line of women still waiting.
You are no longer able to smile politely to them.
A kind soul at the very end of the line points out a piece of toilet paper trailing from your shoe.(Where was that when you NEEDED it??) You yank the paper from your shoe, plunk it in the woman's hand and tell her warmly, "Here, you just might need this".
As you exit, you spot your hubby, who has long since entered, used, and left the men's restroom. Annoyed, he asks, "What took you so long, and why is your purse hanging around your neck?" .................

This is dedicated to women everywhere who deal with a public restrooms (rest??? you've GOT to be kidding!!). It finally explains to the men what really does take us so long. It also answers their other commonly asked questions about why women go to the restroom in pairs. It's so the other gal can hold the door, hang onto your purse, and hand you Kleenex under the door!

someone should have been paying attention to this-i was too little back then-we can still learn tho:



amazing sun out there! catching up with some mail and putting some more apps on my iphone. god, i love that thing-ranks right up there with my kitchenaid mixer and my dishwasher!!!












Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it.
Do not believe in anything simply becau...se it is spoken and rumored by many.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books.
Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.
Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations.
But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.

a must read!
Please tell every dog or cat owner you know. Even if you don't have a pet, please pass this to those who do.
Over the weekend, the doting owner of two young lab mixes purchased Cocoa Mulch from Target to use in their garden. The dogs loved the way it smelled and it was advertised to keep cats away from their garden. Their dog (Calypso) decided the mulch smelled good enough to eat and devoured a large helping. She vomited a few times which was typical when she eats something new but wasn't acting

lethargic in any way. The next day, Mom woke up and took Calypso out for her morning walk . Half way through the walk, she had a seizure and died instantly.

Although the mulch had NO warnings printed on the label, upon further investigation on the company's website,

This product is HIGHLY toxic to dogs and cats.

Cocoa Mulch is manufactured by Hershey's, and they claim that "It is true that studies have shown that 50% of the dogs that eat Cocoa Mulch can suffer physical harm to a variety of degrees (depending on each individual dog). However, 98% of all dogs won't eat it."
*Snopes site gives the following information:http://www.snopes.com/critters/crusader/cocoamulch.asp *

Cocoa Mulch, which is sold by Home Depot, Foreman's Garden Supply and other Garden supply stores contains a lethal ingredient called 'Theobromine'. It is lethal to dogs and cats. It smells li ke chocolate and it really attracts dogs. They will ingest this stuff and die. Several deaths already occurred in the last 2-3 weeks.

Theobromine is in all chocolate, especially dark or baker's chocolate which is toxic to dogs. Cocoa bean shells contain potentially toxic quantities of theobromine, a xanthine compound similar in effects to caffeine and theophylline. A dog that ingested a lethal quantity of garden mulch made from cacao bean shells developed severe convulsions and died 17 hours later. Analysis of the stomach contents and the ingested cacao bean shells revealed the presence of lethal amounts of theobromine.

there is little difference between this group and the manson family back in the 60's. manson's aim was to start a race war and he could pick up the pieces afterward and lead and these people(and others of like mind)want to start a religious war and pick up the pieces and lead. however, this group was really, really, well armed.

i wish this had been around when i was a senior in high school.
went to the scholarship meeting. there are 2 separate scholarships. we received 13 essays. the committee will read and re-read and then pick the top ones. we do the same for the applicants for the other scholarship, but those aren't due in yet.
i really enjoy being on the committee. fundraising always makes me nervous, but reading the essays and finding good ones gives me hope for our young people just starting out.
we hear bad things about kids every day-these kids shine.

yep-i have it-do YOU?





Thank goodness there's a name for this disorder. Somehow I feel better even though I have it!! Recently, I was diagnosed with A.A.A.D.D.-- Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder. This is how it manifests: I decide to water my garden. As I turn on the hose in the driveway, I look over at my car and decide it needs washing. As I start towards the garage, I notice mail on the porch table that I brought up from the mailbox earlier. I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car. I lay my car keys on table, put the junk mail in the garbage can under the table and notice the garbage can is full. So I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the garbage first. But then I think, since I'm going to be near the mailbox when I take out the garbage anyway, I might as well pay the bills first. I take my check book off the table, and see there's only one check left. My extra checks are in my desk in the study, so I go in to my desk where I find the can of Pepsi that I had been drinking when I decided to water the garden. I'm going to look for my checks, but first I need to move the can of Pepsi out of the way so I don't accidentally knock it over. The Pepsi is getting warm, and I decide to put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold. As I head for the kitchen with the Pepsi, a vase of flowers catches my eye--they need water. I put the Pepsi on the counter and discover my reading glasses that I've been searching for all morning. I decide I better put them back on my desk, but first I'm going to water the flowers. I set the glasses back down on the counter, fill a container with water and suddenly spot the TV remote. Someone left it on the kitchen table. I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV, I'll be looking for the remote, but I won't remember that it's on the kitchen table, so I decide to put it back in the den where it belongs, but first I'll water the flowers. I pour some water in the flowers, but some spills onto the floor. Sou set the remote back on the table, get some towels to wipe up the spill. Then I head down the hall trying to remember what I was planning to do. At the end of the day: the car isn't washed-the bills aren't paid-there is a warm can of Pepsi sitting on the counter- the flowers don't have enough water, there is still only one check in my checkbook, I can't find my remote, or my glasses and I have no idea where my car keys went to. Then, when I try to figure out why nothing got done today, I'm really baffled because I know I was busy all day, and I'm really tired. I realize this is a serious problem, and I'll try to get some help for it, but first I need to water the garden.

That's Incredible


Yield: Makes 10 to 12 servings


1 cup DOMINO Granulated Sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup shortening, melted
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1 cup NESTLE TOLL HOUSE Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
1 cup miniature marshmallows
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup NESTLE TOLL HOUSE Semi-Sweet Chocolate Mini Morsels
Chocolate Pudding
2 cups whipping cream
2 (8-ounce) packages NESTLE TOLL HOUSE Semi-Sweet Chocolate Baking Bars, broken into pieces

Preheat oven to 350°. Line the bottom of a 10-inch springform pan with parchment paper. Lightly grease and flour paper and sides of pan.

Stir together first 9 ingredients until well blended; fold in 1 cup chocolate morsels. Pour batter into prepared pan, and spread evenly over bottom.

Bake on middle rack at 350° for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from oven, and sprinkle top evenly with marshmallows, pecans, and 1/2 cup chocolate mini morsels. Place on a wire rack, and let cool. Pour hot Chocolate Pudding over marshmallow mixture; cover and chill 8 hours or overnight.

Heat cream in a saucepan; bring to a simmer. Remove pan from heat, and add chocolate pieces, stirring until chocolate melts. Let ganache stand 1 hour, stirring occasionally, until spreading consistency. Remove sides from springform pan; pour and spread chocolate mixture evenly on top and sides of cake.

TIP: When putting the chocolate ganache on this dessert, you may need to pour on a layer, let it set; then pour on an additional layer, and chill. Don't worry if you have ganache left over--simply freeze it for another use.

Bart Stupak Received Threatening Messages for Health Care Vote (Listen) - Political Hotsheet - CBS News
i'll say right up front-i'm not a fan of this guy, but THIS is awful!!!!

listen to a few of the calls














from donna:




Words for every woman to live by:



1. Aspire to be Barbie - the bitch has everything.



2. If the shoe fits - buy them in every color.



3. Take life with a pinch of salt... A wedge of lime, and a shot of tequila.



4. In need of a support group? - Cocktail hour with the girls!



5. Go on the 30 day diet.. (I'm on it and so far I've lost 15 days).



6. When life gets you down - just put on your big girl panties and deal with it.



7. Let your greatest fear be that there is no PMS and this is just your personality.



8. I know I'm in my own little world, but it's ok. They know me here.



9. Lead me not into temptation, I can find it myself.



10. Don't get your knickers in a knot; it solves nothing and makes you walk funny.



11. When life gives you lemons in 2010 - turn it into lemonade then mix it with vodka.



12. Remember wherever there is a good looking, sweet, single, or married man there is some woman tired of his bullshit!



13. Keep your chin up, only the first 40 years of parenthood are the hardest.



14. If it has Tires or Testicles it's gonna give you trouble.



15. By the time a woman realizes her mother was right, she has a daughter who thinks she's wrong.



'Good friends are like stars.........You don't always see them, but you know they are always there'



'Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live for today'.



Now smile and send to any girl wasting time at work, suffering from a hangover, or just suffering from life, who might need a reason to smile!

The recipe said beat 12 eggs separately.



The neighbors were nice enough to loan me some extra bowls.






Tom wanted fruit salad for supper.



The recipe said serve without dressing. So I didn't dress.



What a surprise when Tom brought a friend home for supper




A good day for rice.



The recipe said wash thoroughly before steaming the rice.



It seemed kind of silly but I took a bath anyway.



I can't say it improved the rice any.








Today Tom asked for salad again I tried a new recipe.



It said prepare ingredients; lay on a bed of lettuce one hour before serving..



Tom asked me why I was rolling around in the garden.




I found an easy recipe for cookies.



It said put the ingredients in a bowl and beat it.



There must have been something wrong with this recipe.



When I got back, everything was the same as when I left.








Tom did the shopping today and brought home a chicken.



He asked me to dress it for Sunday.



I don't have any clothes that fit it, and for some reason



Tom keeps counting to ten.








Tom's folks came to dinner.



I wanted to serve roast, but all I had was hamburger.



Suddenly I had a flash of genius..



I put the hamburger in the oven and set the controls for "roast."



It still came out "hamburger," much to my disappointment.




GOOD NIGHT DEAR DIARY. This has been a very exciting week!



I am eager for tomorrow to come so I can try out a new recipe on Tom.



If I can talk Tom into buying a bigger oven, I would like to surprise him



With a chocolate moose.




















A blonde goes into a coffee shop and notices there's
A 'peel and win' sticker on her coffee cup.

So she peels it off and starts screaming,
'I've won a motorhome! I've won a motorhome!'


The waitress says, 'That's impossible.
The biggest prize is a free Lunch.?'


But the blonde keeps on screaming,
'I've won a motorhome!
I've won a motorhome!'


Finally, the manager comes over and says,
'Ma'am, I'm sorry, but you're mistaken.
You couldn't have po ssi bly won a motorhome
Because we didn't have that as a prize.


The blonde says, 'No, it's not a mistake.
I've won a motorhome!'


And she hands the ticket to the
Manager and HE reads...









(YOU'RE GOING TO LOVE THIS !!!!!! .. I PROMISE !)

The child was a typical four-year-old girl - cute, inquisitive, bright as a new penny.
When she expressed difficulty in grasping the concept of marriage,
her father decided to pull out his wedding photo album, thinking visual images would help. One page after another, he pointed out the bride arriving at the church,
the entrance, the wedding ceremony, the recessional, the
reception, etc.
"Now do you understand?" he asked.
"I think so," she said, "is that when mommy came to work for
us?"

What does the health care bill mean to me? (washingtonpost.com)
got this from donna- she really could do this, so...






This is a tale of 3 men:

The first man married a woman from New York. He told her that she was to do

the dishes and house cleaning. It took a couple of days, but on the third

day, he came home to see a clean house and dishes washed and put away.

The second man married a woman from Cincinnati. He gave his wife orders that

she was to do all the cleaning, dishes and the cooking. The first day he

didn't see any results, but the next day he saw it was better. By the third

day, he saw his house was clean, the dishes were done and there was a huge

dinner on the table.

The third man married a girl from Pittsburgh He ordered her to keep the

house clean, dishes washed, lawn mowed, laundry washed, and hot meals on the

table for every meal. He said the first day he didn't see anything, the

second day he didn't see anything but, by the third day, some of the swelling

had gone down and he could see a little out of his left eye, and his arm was

healed enough that he could fix himself a sandwich and load the dishwasher.

He still has some difficulty when he pees.

this is just a grand thing!
A married couple in their early 60 ' s were celebrating their 40th Wedding
Anniversary in a romantic little restaurant....
Suddenly, a tiny yet beautiful fairy appeared on their table. She said,
"For being such an exemplary married couple and for being loving to each other for all this time, I will grant you each a wish."

The wife answered, "Oh, I want to travel around the world with my darling
husband." The fairy waved her magic wand and - poof! - two tickets for the Queen Mary II
appeared in her hands.
The husband thought for a moment: "Well, this is all very romantic, but an
opportunity like this will never come again. I'm sorry my love, but my wish is to have a wife 30

years younger than I." The wife, and the fairy, were deeply disappointed, but a
wish is a wish. So the fairy waved her magic wand and poof!....the husband became 93 years old.



The moral of this story: Men who are ungrateful should remember,
Fairies are female.....
up-raining-stayed up til midnight to watch them pass the bill. i wish people would understand that is is insurance reform. is this bill perfect? no- but it can be worked on now that it is passed. the same thing happened with the passage of medicare.
if this bill had not passed it would be at least another 20 years til it could have another chance. by then, the insurance companies would have kicked everyone that even looked as if they MIGHT become ill of of their rolls. AND since genetic testing is a reality and soon we can test for more and more catastrophic genes the insurance companies could deny coverage to your newborn of child if they carry the gene for any form of cancer etc.
they can not do that with the passage of this bill!
