The number one benefit of information technology is that it empowers people to do what they want to do. It lets people be creative. It lets people be productive. It lets people learn things they didn't think they could learn before, and so in a sense it is all about potential.

"Swinging on a Star"
- Bing Crosby

Would you like to swing on a star
Carry moonbeams home in a jar
And be better off than you are
Or would you rather be a mule?

A mule is an animal with long funny ears
He kicks up at anything he hears
His back is brawny but his brain is weak
He's just plain stupid with a stubborn streak
And by the way, if you hate to go to school
You may grow up to be a mule

Or would you like to swing on a star
Carry moonbeams home in a jar
And be better off than you are
Or would you rather be a pig?

A pig is an animal with dirt on his face
His shoes are a terrible disgrace
He's got no manners when he eats his food
He's fat and lazy and extremely rude
But if you don't care a feather or a fig
You may grow up to be a pig

Or would you like to swing on a star
Carry moonbeams home in a jar
And be better off than you are
Or would you rather be a fish?

A fish won't do anything, but swim in a brook
He can't write his name or read a book
To fool the people is his only thought
And though he's slippery, he still gets caught
But then if that sort of life is what you wish
You may grow up to be a fish

And all the monkeys aren't in the zoo
Everyday you'll meet quite a few
So you see it's all up to you
You can be better than you are
You could be swingin' on a star



Amy

Good morning everyone...

Need to take hubby back to the lumber yard. Neighbour came over yesterday and ordered two trugs.  He will be busy for a couple of days.

Have some deliveries to make then home to sew. I did manage to wash floors yesterday and get some sewing done.

Bubble, thank you for the new start and would you like to be a star is singing in my head :)

Jane, you do have your work cut out for you today! Bet that new flooring looks so nice.

Gloria, no I didn't get any shoes but I have an appointment in the city and may get a chance to get them then..I hope.

Better get a move on here....enjoy your day everyone.

Stay safe..

Good Morning Everyfriend!  BUBBLE,I enjoyed all or your postings but "Swingin' on a Star" is one of my all time favorite songs.  I know all the words to it and I sing it often.  But when I sing it, I don't hear it in my off tune, no music voice.  I hear Bing Crosby sing it as he did to the New York City kids at his church.  Also as he does on the CD I have of his music.  Now it will be going through my mind all day.

I'm going to start on the bedroom change today but I'm going to be ready just in case.  Cathy's on vacation this week and we might be heading for the Wednesday farmer's market later this morning.  I think the early corn might be available.  I also have to clean and freeze the rest of the black raspberries and deal with whatever comes from the market. 

Gonna be a busy day so I better get started.  AMY, good luck with your shoe hunt.  You need them to keep up with Kyle.

I off to feed Mickie and eat the rest of the cleaned raspberries for breakfast.  GLORIA, I'll fix a bowl for you just in case you got the broom working.

Enjoy your day, Everyfriend.  Make it your own in every way.

Good Morning everyone, well it is raining @7:00 AM with 7 mph wind. that is the making of a good day,we needed the rain. God is as usual taking good care of us.
hope you all are doing as good. may your day be just as you like it.

Lloyd

I am back, setting here looking out and watching the humming Birds,in the rain eating.Is amassing to watch them. the will flay up , sometimes set down and eat at the feeder and some times stay flying in space and eat,and just like your children sometimes stay calm and some times jump on each other. I spend a lot of time setting here watching them. have a good of day as I am watching the birds.

Lloyd

Gloria

Good morning everyone. Not much up to chatting this morning so this will me short.

SHIRLEY  just lucky when they sent Yvette here. We hit it off and that was almost 3 years ago. No complins about her except she talks too much. I keep telling her that. I had a couple of good ones before she started here. I was one of her first clients.

BUBBLE  thanks for the new page. Made me realize the month of July is half over. Only a couple more months of hot humid weather. Wonderful. You now have the sound of Bing Crosby in my head. I remember seeing him sing that in a movie, maybe the Bells of St. Mary? I know he played the part of a priest.

Have a good day everyone and stay safe.

CallieOK

Good morning. 

A much busier morning than my usual routine.
Son coming for dinner. 
Think I'll relax in between.

Shirley

My son is coming, too, Callie. BUT, I still have stuff in the middle of the floor from the RV, what to take to the basement & what to put back in the RV and what to give away. When you can't decide, just let it lay there.  ???

Been in for my Echo, can't get a hint out of the tech how it looks so must wait until next week appointment with the cardio to get his take. Have the routine down pat with masks, questions & temp taking, not crowded. Tom & Callie came in for an early supper but Tiger is playing hard to get. They know when they are hungry and certainly don't hesitate to let one know! Tiger just walked away.

Bubble, if I haven't said it before, love the graphics & still humming that tune. The words were all buried in my head.  I also enjoyed the Bells of St.Mary's, Amy. I guess everyone in that movie is dead, now, but what a memory to leave behind, right?

Better get moving. Hope everyone has a great day, where ever you are!

Lloyd Hammond

well one of my problems Is I do not rember well any more. so I looked back as far as I can and never seen what i thought I may have posted,do not see it so I tell you again or now how ever it is,Nancy made two loaves of home bread. she used 2 cups of whole wheat and 4 cups of regular white flour in it. we started in on as soon as it came out of the oven. we 4 children and 3 adults. we ate one loaf of it except about 3 slices 3/4 thick slices. do not drool all over your self real butter and honey on it.

Lloyd

Amy

Lloyd, that sounds delicious!! Nothing nicer than hot bread from the oven with real butter and honey....and yes, I am drooling! :))
Today was mixed. we went to pick up supplies from the lumber store , unloaded it and then I went back into town. Made a delivery then headed to a fabric sale...... oh my..did I have fun!!! Came away  with two heavy bags of fabric.......great for masks and some for quilts. Back to sewing..

I started working on the back rooms and was just sitting down to rest when I got a text from Cathy.  She was going to take a shower and then she'd be over to take me to the Farmer's Market.  I said that was fine and then she asked if I wanted to go to Kohl's too.  I did!  So I got in the shower and got ready and I had my very first real shopping outage since I broke my arm and the shutdowns began in March.  It felt wonderful!

I got a zucchini, 2 ears of corn and the best tomato I've eaten in a long time at the Farmers Market.  And when I got home, I cleaned and froze the rest of the black raspberries (there's almost enough for a batch of jam) and  have enough for two more breakfasts.  I'll have to see if I can pick up a couple boxes at the Sunday Farmer's Market to make up the rest for a batch of jam.

All in all, a very nice day.  Mickie and I will have one more walk....
Sorry, interruption!  I glanced up at the window and it was getting pretty dark so I took Mickie for her walk and then came back to finish my post. 

I hope you all had a great day!  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy, healthy tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

well I am heading off to bed also, shot and evening pill are next.
 we had 1" rain with a little thunder this morning. good night and sweet dreams and  God bless you all.

Lloyd

Shirley

Bedtime in Kansas as well. Lloyd, nothing I like better than hot bread with butter & honey.  On the other hand, fresh veggies from the Farmer's Market rates right up there! I do love to eat. Jane, have to pass on the raspberries, strange that just a whif of them after all these years (1955) and my stomach does a flip. Not fair.

We had wild blackberries, raspberries and dew berries in the field behind our house when growing up, as well as wild strawberries. the strawberries were tiny but such heavy taste & smell, yum. The blackberries were "tame" not wild, my mother said. They were as big as a grown person's thumb. Don't know why the dew berries didn't rate very high, they were huge. Always thought I'd like to plant some in the berm & just let them multiply.

When we first moved to Wichita we rented a house until we could build, and that house had a whole patch of blackberries that kept us in cobblers & jam, more than we could eat. At this house I need those trugs, our soil isn't soil but sand and we think probably contaminated as well. These lots were created by pulling sand up from the river to level them out, and very little top soil. Back in the old days people used to dump along the river & we still find shards of glass, etc. when having to dig out fence posts.

Still very hot out & chance of rain after midnight, tried to talk Tom & Tiger into staying in tonight, but the kept patting the door to go out. Callie went to her garage door, she seems to like the hot garage better than cool house. I didn't get 5 hours sleep last night so am heading to bed right now.

Sweet dreams, God Bless and as Lloyd says, "hope to see you tomorrow". I'm still kind of in shock with my high school friend's wife dying from that truck going through Wendy's and he is in the hospital with broken ribs & collapsed lungs. My heart goes out to him with conditions like they are, but someone said his sons had been able to visit with him, a special unit of the hospital. "Hope to see you tomorrow" is really true!  I'll turn out the lights, Lloyd.....Shirley

Denver

Posting late again.  Not much to say.  The weather has been much cooler the past two days so we have been able to get a few tasks done. 

We had our first locally grown corn on the Cobb tonight, and it was pretty tasty! 

AMY, yippee more lucky people getting a nice trug built by Kyle! 

SHIRLEY, I am holding good positive thoughts and saying prayers for a good report on the echo. 

JANE, nice to read you got to go to the Farmers Market and to Kohl's for some shopping.  Finishing up the room will get done soon enough.

I hope you all have a good night of rest. 

Jenny

Amy

Good morning everyone..

We are to have t storms and rain.......so they say...we shall see.

My neighbour and I are off to the city, I have a Dr appointment and then we will shop till we drop, which  doesn't take long anymore. :)
Shirley, where I came from we called the blackberries  thimbleberries. My favourite berry is the raspberry, and the wild ones are the best!

Jane, our corn is far from being ready here. Can't wait for a fresh tomato, have some on the plant but it will be  a while yet.

Jenny , he has 3 more to build come Spring! He enjoys the work and it is keeping him busy.

Gloria, hope today is a good day for you..

Phyliss ,Joy Callie and Sandy good morning to you..hope all is well.

Better go get my town clothes on..

Enjoy your day everyone..

Good Morning everyone, It is 66ยบ And going for the upper 80's or mid 90's today clear right now, Have a good day just as you like it. I had a hard time getting my head to stop rambling and go to sleep Last night even with the pills, but when it did i slept good more rested this morning. see you later

Lloyd

Gloria

Good morning everyone, the sun is shining and the sky is blue and it is a wonderful 63. Who could ask for better on a day in July? Well it would be better if this      $^%& virus was wiped out and we could get back to being social again with our  neighbors.

AMY  thank you for for the link, now I know what I will be watching later. I remember seeing that movie when it first came out and waiting in line to get into see it. Sad at the end though if I remember right.

SHIRLEY  the doctor I go to is still not seeing anyone in person but on line she talks to them if needed.

LLOYD  nothing beats a home made bread out of the oven and eaten with lots of real butter on it.

AMY  looks like you have a lot of new material to sew up. You must be happy now.

JANE  glad you got some fresh produce but my mouth started watering when you mentioned a tasty tomato. Son  #1 told me Tuesday when he was here that he had one tomato getting red, a cherry tomato. That would be a tease to eat that one bite tomato. I would love to get out and go shopping with my daughter. Trying on clothes is a job and she was honest about how things looked. My SIL has taken me but she wonders around-no help.

JENNY  today looks like it will be the coolest day here and low humidity since last month.

AMY  wather wise it will be a good day here. I have the window in the bedroom open as high as I can raise it. Nice getting some fresh air in.

Have a good day everyone and stay safe.

I'm still here but it has been, and is, so hot I just don't feel like doing anything....even typing on the computer.  My mother always said don't wish your life away but, oh, I do wish this summer was over.

I received some new ebooks from the library yesterday so I think I'll just spend most of the day reading.  David will pick up the groceries later on and we will have a Schwann's delivery today and that will be it for thinking about food for awhile.  I hard boiled 1/2 dz. eggs in the IP yesterday so I will make some egg salad and slice some tomatoes, sweet onions, and cucumbers, etc. for vegetable munching and that will be about the extent of our dinner tonight.  I will make a triple berry  (raspberry,blackberry & blueberry) and banana smoothie to go with it.  Just keeping it easy and cool.

Take care, All.

Just checking in...

This day took off this morning.  Mickie and I have already had a walk and I watered the garden before the sun got around to it. (I neglected it last night...too tired)  I've put the clean dishes away from the dishwasher, read the paper, did a bit of dusting, and went through two boxes. 

GLORIA, I thought of you as I ate my black raspberries for breakfast this morning.  It's only up to 72 so far this morning and only supposed to reach 80.  Not so bad!

Better get back to the busy-ness and get something accomplished this morning.  I want to do some cooking this afternoon.

Enjoy your day, whatever you do!

Good Morning everyone. Denver I was told a few min ago you Lost a family member. and I was scolded the other day about putting too much info. on here, but I would like to get the info some how. I have something for you. I need a snail mail address please. I think so_P_bubble can do that, I cant post my email address on here, but I think she can get it to you so you can or she can send it to me.

Had the 4th visit from an exterminator yesterday and he reset the critter trap.  Nothing there this morning.  Yesterday, I drove to the grocery pick-up but had to enter the drug store area to pick up two prescriptions.  We are enduring a time here - Don had to send in his hearing aids and it looks like a week plus before they will be returned.  It is OK in the house because he can understand me - no phone calls for him as I usually answer everything anyway.  This altitude is not good for him either.  ---enough, we do our best and that is all we can do these days. 

A friend wants to meet at an outdoor restaurant for a birthday gathering - spaced apart.  I have decided to not even try it and another gal is not going either.  We still have terrible numbers here - this is about the poorest run state with politicians I have ever seen  Graffiti has been on state capitol and city buildings for months & not a thing has been cleaned.  People sleeping in tents & living on the streets in front of these public buildings - yuk!  Being run by the same kind who rule over Seattle - my home for many years.  Seattle is a smelly dump.  I wish we could send a real commanding officer to take charge.   

Otherwise, we are seeing a lot more wildlife - animals I mean.  Deer is back in sight.  They just look at us from afar and keep on grazing. 

I baked sugar-free brownie mix yesterday and put sugar-free ice cream on it for Don = he really liked it. 

Hang in there - there has to be an antidote  for this virus one day.  We will all dance in the streets when that happens.   

Amy

Oh my what a fun day!! We struck out at 7 this morning.. after going to my appointment off we went to shop........and shop we did!! We met up with son and exchanged items then shopped some more. We both got a great buy on dirt..5 bags for $6.00 so since we both have new trugs to fill come Spring we loaded up 20 bags....sure gave us a smooth ride home..

Lots of giggles and laughs  today

Now to relax...more than ready to put my feet up......

I made a new meatball recipe for supper and I had it over noodles for supper.  Tomorrow I'm going to try it over broccoli.  I think it will be better with the veggies altho it was good with the noodles tonight.

Got the bed, dresser, night stand and blanket box moved into the new room with Cathy's help today.  Tomorrow the guys from my son's store will come by and move my freezer to the other room and a bookcase into the (now) bedroom and then I'll be able to work on the boxes of "stuff".  Hopefully, a lot of it will go to Goodwill.  On full box of material will be ready for Christy the next time she ventures this way from Maryland.  She said not to get rid of any material.  So she gets it all. 

Now I'm ready to hit the hay and I must say, all this "work" has given me some good nights of sleep.  I haven't been waking up for anything after I go to bed.  So I'm wishing you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy, healthy tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!
