Nothing exciting in my life, but a great deal or two for you.  I grabbed the Ebay one, but doubt they’ll last.

Nothing real exciting to tell you today.   Still nothing about the condo.  I did find another one with all fairly new appliances, and freshly painted, in case “mine”  doesn’t work out.  Think I”ll call the lawyer again.  This is getting ridiculous, (not in the good sense), and I”m sure they cringe when they hear my voice.

I think this is a really nice idea.  Perhaps as an event gift?  Wedding?  Bar Mitzvah?  Cute baby doing anything?  The 8×10″ is free if you onsider $15 s&h free.  Still might be a good value.  I’m thinking about it.

Casio EX-Z550 14.1MP Digital Camera with 4x Wide Angle Zoom with CCD Shift Image Stabilization and 2.7 inch LCD (Blue) 

Amazon’s deal of the day looks pretty good.  Wish they’d had that before I bought my Fudji, but I’m pretty happy with that.  Just a long time fan of Canon.

Car Buzz & Bargains

Had pics taken of suv at insurance place, and then to Subaru dealer (if you want one, I”ll give you a referral for a great deal), to drop off my title.  They were having a weekend sale, and put out a nice spread, I had a shrimp wrap, tomatoes and mozzerella with sundried tomato, and a variety of pickles.  Yum!  Now I have to decide if I’m buying an expensive warranty plan.  Decisions, decisions……  Otherwise, just did food shopping and went to my tax person, whom I still need to send stuff.   Then I got home oand ordered the following.  I’m thinking hte pods half pay for it.


I hope the price doesn’t go back up or they charge s&h again before you see this.  I just ordered it.  If you want it, I can give you a coupon number.  I have a couple for % off.

Buzz & Bargains

Okay, it was the title that came yesterday.  I”ll drop it off at Subaru tomorrow.   Tomorrow will be a busy day, going in three directions.  First, to the insurance company, southwest of us,  for pics of our new baby/Forester.  Then to Subaru which is way northweset of us.  Then to my tax person, the other Jill, who is way southeasst of us.  Guess we’ll be able to check the gas mileage.  I”ve noticed that when Hubby leaves in the morning, instead of my usual “Be careful”, I now say “Take care of my truck.”  Gotta work on that.


If you aren’t foolish enough (like I am) to want a heavy cast iron one, this is a nice deal on a 5 qt Dutch oven, for $19.

 Okay, majorly PO’d here.  Just went to publish and everything disappeared. 

Apparently DMV is going haywire.  Tried to get title on my trade-in and the site says one was already ordered and they can’t send another.  WTF!  Notiified by email yesterday to expect a UPS package from DMV today.  I thing it’s the registration on the new car, but maybe the title on the old one.   Who knows???

Pre-approval (which is what the needed, not approval) went to lawyer.  We’ll see if I’m still buying condo.  Wish I knew where my life is heading.

    This is bizarre – after you find the guy – it’s so obvious. 
    Once you find him – it’s embarrassing, and you think, 
    Why didn’t I see him immediately? 


    Doctors have concluded that if you find the man in the coffee beans in 3 seconds, the right half of your brain is better developed than most people. If you find the man between 3 seconds and 1 minute, the right half of the brain is developed normally. If you find the man between 1 minute and 3 minutes, then the right half of your brain is functioning slowly and you need to eat more protein. If you have not found the man after 3 minutes, the advice is to look for more of this type of exercise to make that part of the brain stronger!!!  

    And, yes, the man is really there!!

    We picked it up last night.  Hard to believe how much stuff was in the trunk of our Kia.  Embarrassing.  Anyway, we stopped at Taco Bell for crunch wraps  (mine fresca style) to celebrate.  Made Hubby call me when he got to work this morning to lef me know the Forester got there safe & sound.  I get attached quickly.  This is a stock pic of my car, same color.  Looks functional, doesn’t it? 


    This is my favoite tgiFriday’s coupon.  They don’t  have it often anymore.


    I’m not really famiiar with Paula Deen products, but this looks like a darned good deal for tempered steel. forged knives.  May not be wonderful, but for this price, probably worth a chance if you need knives.  Know something?  With all my love of food and cooking, I don’t own a chef’s knife.  Do have an appropriately size Santouku though.
