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?

Perfectly Imperfect

Our bodies are very flawed as you know. One side of our body is not exactly like the other side. One nostril may be bigger than the other, one eye might be another color.  One eye may be bigger and or higher. One breast may be bigger than the other and usually is!

For instance I shower and put on deodorant everyday, yet if I did some sweaty heavy cleaning I notice the left armpit will stink and the other won’t. My left ear produces much more wax than the right which hardly produces any. My left breast is smaller than my right.  I have a small dimple in my right cheek but not in my left and my smile is not balanced out. One foot is 1/2 size larger than the other!

I’ve seen lots of flaws in other people. Some are more attractive than me, some less, and I consider myself rather plain to look at. I know I’m not the only imperfect human specimen out there in the world and it makes me feel better knowing we are all perfectly imperfect!

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.
