Someone is definitely easting the food I leave out over night, but I know it’s not BBK, who never moves the bowl.  Now I find it closer to my door every morning.  I hope BBK is happy.

Since BBK seems to have found a new home, I’ve been pretty lonely.  Today I got a call from someone I’d left a message with, about a kitten.  I’m not sure if I’m getting the kitten yet, but if I do, you can be sure I’ll keep you updated, and inundated with pictures.  Probably more important, I made a new friend (I hope).  We spent over 2 hours onthe phone talking about everything, and I learned a ot from her.  Most pleasant afternoon I’ve had for a while.  I really do hope we keep in touch, Kitty or no.


I know I’ve mentined Shoes on a Shoestring before, but they are now having a 25% off sale.  I’m seriously contemplating a pair of gladiator sandals.  Unfortunately yellow tag items don’t get the discount.  






Once Upon a time there was a king.

The king had a beautiful daughter, 

But, there was a problem:

Everything the princess touched would melt.

No matter what; 




Anything she touched would melt.  

Because of this, men were afraid of her. Nobody would dare marry her. 

The king despaired. What could he do to help his daughter? 

He consulted his wizards and magicians. One wizard told the king, 

‘If your daughter touches one thing that does not melt in her hands, she will be cured.’ 

The king was overjoyed and came up with a plan.

The next day, he held a competition. Any man that could bring his daughter an object that would not melt would marry her and inherit the king’s wealth..  

The first brought a sword of the finest steel. But alas, when the princess touched it, it melted. The prince went away sadly .   

 The second prince brought diamonds.  He thought diamonds are the hardest substance in the world and would not melt. But alas, Once the princess touched them, they melted.   He too was sent away disappointed.  

The third prince approached. He told the princess, 
‘Put your hand in my pocket and feel what is in there.’ 
The princess did as she was told, though she turned red .   

 She felt something hard. She held it in her hand. 

And it did not melt!!! 

The king was overjoyed. Everybody in the kingdom was overjoyed.   

And the third prince married the princess and they both lived happily ever after. 

Question: What was in the prince’s pants?   
(Scroll  down for the answer)   







M&M’s of course. 

They melt in your mouth, not in your hand.  

What were you thinking??

3:15 am and still no BBK.  It’s over a week now.  I think I’ll go to the pound this weekend and save a life.  I’ll let you know.  BTW, by 4:30 someone came and ate, no sign of them though. 


One of the many things that drive me crazy is the price of soft drinks aat fast food places.  I only go to two, Taco Bell and Checkers.  Found this great Taco Bell coupon. 

Free Limeade Sparkler from Taco Bell: Print a coupon for a free Limeade Sparkler from Taco Bell. Valid through June 11, 2010 or while supplies last.



I am a fan of Covergirl in general, particularly their waterproof mascaras, and am now testing Covergirl & Olay Ageless Makeup as a BzzAgent .  I mistakenly ordered a color grouping way too dark for me, but, found the foundation is great for sculpting and blends in well with other makeup.  The eye concealer and corrector are terrific, and  I will keep buying them.  Definitely something to look for when you go shopping.



 Thanks Crystal Paine for this one.  I wish we had a Sonic, but alas……

Sonic locations around the country are offering Buy One, Get One Free Shake through June 27, 2010. When you order a shake, you’ll get a coupon for a free shake to use immediately or at a later date.


I can’t make this because one of us has to watch Hubby’s cholesterol.  It looks good and easy though.

Broccoli Cheddar Soup

1 cup onions, chopped

4 garlic cloves, minced

2 Tbsp butter

16 ounces broccoli, chopped (fresh is best, but frozen is good)

6 cups chicken or turkey stock

1 cup milk

4 Tbsp all purpose flour

3 cups shredded medium to sharp cheddar cheese

Salt and pepper to taste

Saute onions and garlic in butter in a deep pot until translucent. Add chopped broccoli. Add chicken or turkey stock. Cook for 20 minutes on medium heat. Mix milk and flour in a blender until smooth. Add milk and flour mixture to the pot. Puree the soup until it is smooth. Cook over medium heat until thickened, stirring regularly. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add cheese to the soup and stir until the cheese is blended. Let the soup cool for 5 to 10 minutes before serving. Serve the soup with crusty bread. Serves 6.

I haven’t seen BBK for  about a week now.  I keep going outside to see if he’s sleeping on the chair, and he’s not.  Someone has eaten his food a couple of times, but mosly not.  I think I need a real pet.  This makes me too sad.


I got a great little video from a  frend yesterday. Dog lovers, and I guess everyone, will love it.  YouTube – Dog dancing merengue

We had a family get togehter Saturday, and I brought this bread.  My sister doesn’t eat nuts, and Hubby and daugher don’t eat raisins, so I substituted diced dried apricots and applesauce, and it came out most and yummy.  Next time I’ll bake it a little shorter time, check after 50 minutes.

2 eggs (1/4 cup egg whites)

1 cup sugar (a drop less)

3 ripe bananas (frozen or fresh), diced

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup diced dried apricot, (raisins, or any dried fruit)

1/4  cup applesauce

1 tsp salt

2 cups flour

Peel and dice your bananas, and chop your dried fruit.

One by one, whisk together the ingredients, in the order that they’re listed.

BBK may have eaten here sometime between 2:30 and 4:30 am.  I don’t think it was him though. The towel on his chair isn’t moved.  He always sleeps there a while when he comes.  I havaen’t seen him since about  3 am Monday.  I’m wondering if someone took him in.  I guess hat would be a good thing.
