Fragments

We are currently enjoying our boat and this is where we will ring in the new year. We usually go each year as Little Bit doesn't like fireworks and it seems that many save them for the new year celebrations.

We had a wonderful Christmas and I'm hoping that all of you that celebrate Christmas did too. Ours was filled with family and great food. Hubby and I want to host Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner as long as we are able.

Cat Quotes

I have studied many philosophers and many cats. The wisdom of cats is infinitely superior.  Hippolyte Taine

Cats are rather delicate creatures and they are subject to a good many ailments, but I never heard of one who suffered from insomnia.  Joseph Wood Krutch

Teaching the Tribe

A missionary who had spent years showing a tribe of natives how to farm and build things to be self-sufficient gets the word that he is to return home. He realizes that the one thing he never taught the natives was how to speak English, so he takes the chief and starts walking in the forest.

Wednesdays Question

It's Wednesday so that means it's question time. It's time to ponder and then answer just one question. Okay, you can add all you want as a reason for your answer too. We'd all like that.

So here's this weeks question: Those of us that celebrate Christmas just finished eating our way through the day yesterday. How many leftovers do you have and how long will it take before you're done with them?

Merry Christmas

For those that celebrate Christmas may your day be filled with family, friends, warmth, and love.  Jesus is the reason for the season, that's why it's called CHRISTmas. I wish each of you health, happiness and prosperity. In that order too.

Today I will enjoy the company of family and friends, and especially the company of my great grand baby. It doesn't get any better than that.

Today is prep day for tomorrows feast. We'll make pies, the dressing, get the turkey and the spiral ham ready for the oven and then do all the cleanup after we're done. We listen to Christmas music and just enjoy each others company.

The Speech

An ingenious example of speech and politics occurred recently in the United Nations Assembly and made the world community smile.

A representative from Israel began: "Before beginning my talk I want to tell you something about Moses: When he struck the rock and it brought forth water, he thought, 'What a good opportunity to have a bath!'

Dear Santa

Dear Santa,

How are you? How is Mrs. Claus? I hope everyone, from the reindeer to the elves, is fine.  I have been a very good boy this year. I would like an X - Box 360 with Call of Duty IV and an iPhone 4 for Christmas.  I hope you remember that come Christmas Day.

Merry Christmas,

Timmy Jones

The Best Gifts

Deep down inside we know that the best gifts don't come from catalogs or shopping malls. They don't come in brightly-colored packages or fancy envelopes and they're not sitting under a tree somewhere. The best gifts come from the heart. They come when we look at each other, REALLY look at each other and say, 'You mean a lot to me' or 'I'm so glad you're a part of my life'. A gift like that will never go out of style or be forgotten or be returned for a different size. A gift like that can change the world. - Ron Atchison

Seafood Chowder

First off let me say that the image above is not something hubby made. It does look almost exactly what his seafood chowder looks like. It's indeed very yummy. He also tweaked on this recipe to suit himself.

The Affair

A man returns home a day early from a business trip. It's after midnight. While en route home, he asks the cabby if he would be a witness.

The man suspects his wife is having an affair, and he wants to catch her in the act. For $200, the cabby agrees.

The Audit

At the end of the tax year, the IRS sent an inspector to audit the books of a local hospital. While the agent was checking the books, he turned to the CFO of the hospital and said,?"I notice you buy a lot of bandages. What do you do with the end of the roll when there's too little left to be of any use?"?

A Bad Day?

In case you thought you had a bad day, here are 7 examples of a really bad day:

1. The average cost of rehabilitating a seal after the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska was $80,000. At a special ceremony, two of the most expensively saved animals were released back into the wild amid cheers and applause from onlookers. A minute later, in full view, they were both eaten by a killer whale.

I've owned my Mercedes for 10 years and it goes in for service every year. It costs between $400 to $700 each year. After 10 years it's costing around $3,500, and it's Christmas this month. Sigh. It's still cheaper than buying a new car. Did I tell you I have a little over 21,000 miles on her? Yep, she sits in the garage most of the time.

Reader Appreciation


Pam of Finding Pam gave me the Reader Appreciation Award. Thank you so much Pam. All I have to do is answer five questions and pass this fun meme along. Here's goes!

Ricochet!


The video is a bit over five minutes long, but what an inspirational video it is. Please take the time to view. We all need to focus on what is really important, not on what we expect things/people/animals to be.

Friendship

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.

Women!

Why it's better to be a Woman!

We got off the Titanic first.

We get to flirt with systems support men who always return our calls, and are nice to us when we blow up our computers.
