Groundhog Day! Ugh!

Happy Groundhog Day! The University of Manchester Museum explores the origin of this annual winter tradition, which has its roots in European folklore

AS SOMEONE WHO LIVES IN PENNSYLVANIA.. I find that Groundhog Day is NOT very good for the old Groundhog! My cousin probably blew away over a dozen groundhogs on his property because they eat his garden vegetables. I think life sucks for the poor caged overweight varmint too!

The Pot Calling…

My dear daughter complains about me being online when I visit, and not playing with my grandchildren during their awake periods. Funny when she was a kid she often played alone when I was busy.  Well it’s funny when I see her sitting on the sectional with her iphone in hand, her eyes glued to the screen as her own kids watch TV beside her.  So it’s just the Pot calling the kettle black. Then her daughter, my granddaughter is always glued to some screen during the day if she can get away with it. Are we all obsessed with this bombardment of information and music and movies?

What Does the Future Hold?

I personally don’t look very far into the future, besides keeping up on our doctor and dentist appointments and saving cash for a wedding gift the end of October. I admit we are both scared about the Renal appointments and the money everything will cost in dealing with my husband’s CKD, stage 4 severe.

I have to cook low sodium, low, potassium and low phosphorus dishes. So I go to Fresnesius website where our Renal doc is located and use the recipes there plus on Davita website, just trying to keep him healthy and ward off the dialysis as long as possible.

Hairy Centipede

I found a Hairy Centipede in my daughter’s sink in southern PA. I was going to wash it down the drain but then I remembered that they are a helpful insect… (are they really an insect?). Hairy Centipede’s eat silverfish and other household pests so I picked it up in a piece of paper towel and threw him outside where he crawled away to safety.

Japanese Soap Operas?

I recently got hooked on a Japanese Soap opera filmed in Singapore and Australia called THE DREAM JOB English captioned and shown on Netflix.  I haven’t watched a soap opera in years mind you, but I find myself watching at least 2 episodes a day.  Sometimes you’ll see some bad acting.. but you must overlook that to see how they live in Japan, even after the Fukushima meltdown. The characters seem somewhat passionless in the bedroom scenes, due I suppose to their discreetness. The most I’ve seen was two people talking in bed with their bare shoulders and arms showing. No passionate kissing scenes either like we have here. Maybe, just maybe they have more restraint and class than we do? Maybe not, maybe they hide it well… LOL. Here’s the original uncaptioned peek view.

 

 

Unusual Posts.. by Me

I sometimes post about unusual subject matters that the close minded crowd won’t like. I’m a super curious, woman with a wild imagination.  I like to explore (read about) the unknown even if it scares me sometimes. Like about reincarnation, meditation, angels.. oddities I read about online and in here. Yes I read about aliens and conspiracy theories.  So does that make me weird?  Well that’s too bad, go read someone else’s posts! Then I walk away feeling funny about myself. “What will my readers think?”  Do I have many readers anyway? NO! So who cares? Why do I care anyway? Why am I so insecure? I just need to express my thoughts no matter how off your wall they may be! HA!
