Friday, March 20, 2009, Senior Peeps out there, check this out...

Aesthetics48 at just let us know about this site called I went there and clicked on the join button - the dern thing knew who I was and even had my picture, I mean instantaneously. (He must have a heck of a large file cabinetPhotobucket) Then I added a comment....Being a senior citizen that tries to exercise her brain daily, I am intrigued with this alpainventions.

Really curious how this dude can read my computer.....the screen with the different blogs changes so fast I don't get a chance to read it ...wha? do I need to get a speed reading course? or do I just sit here and watch the world fly by? WOW, it's amazing........

I read the article at and, well, all I can say is I'm going to have to muse on this a bit....the idea is WAY over my curly gray head with the mushy gray matter. OK, I admit it is a lot more exciting than watching the new blades of grass grow or the dust accumulate on my furniture.

So does this keep chugging along after I shut my computer down? Am I supposed to put his link on my blog ? Where do I put it? Put it in every post? Would it be appropriate to put his link on our selling websites or is it ONLY for blogs? How can you get your website urls out there? to be a part of this whirlwind............

Visit & enjoy my blog:

Does commenting alot do something positive for me? Do I need to revisit every morning to get it to go go go again?

One of the keys is to get people to leave a comment - you've got to be interesting....I try, but HOW do you get folks to leave a freaking comment? It's not hard...they might find it is actually a fun thing to do.

Thanks, ACE, for the heads up, and I'll just keep checking and watch the blog posts fly buy like I'm in a tornado....

What ingredients are mothers made of?
1. God makes mothers out of clouds and angel hair and everything nice in the world and one dab of mean.

What did mom need to know about dad before she married him?
1. His last name.

1. Moms work at work and work at home and dads just go to work at work.

2. Diet. You know, her hair. I'd diet, maybe blue.

If you could change one thing about your mom, what would it be?
1. She has this weird thing about me keeping my room clean. I'd get rid of that.
2. I'd make my mom smarter. Then she would know it was my sister who did it not me.
3. I would like for her to get rid of those invisible eyes on the back of her head.

5 Riddles.....Brain Exercise.....Bargains for Shoppers

5 Riddles

This is a great brain exercise for anyone...Seniors, take a few minutes and really think on these.
These are the BEST FIVE RIDDLES I have seen.....THE ANSWERS ARE AT THE BOTTOM....Don't rush through these - Photobucket think about them. I was so irritated that I could only figure out one....ENJOY...

1. A murderer is condemned to death. He has to choose between three rooms. The first is full of raging fires. The second is full of assassins with loaded guns. The third is full of lions that haven't eaten in 3 years. Which room is safest for him?

2. A woman shoots her husband. Then she holds him under water for over 5 minutes. Finally, she hangs him. But 5 minutes later they both go out together and enjoy a wonderful dinner together. How can this be?

3. What is black when you buy it, red when you use it, and gray when you throw it away?

4. Can you name three consecutive days without using the words Wednesday, Friday, or Sunday?

5. This is an unusual paragraph. I'm curious as to just how quickly you can find out what is so unusual about it. It looks so ordinary and plain that you would think nothing was wrong with it. In fact, nothing is wrong with it! It is highly unusual though. Study it and think about it, but you still may not find anything odd. But if you work at it a bit, you might find out. Try to do so without any coaching!

Now for the 5 ANSWERS to the Riddles....drum smiley Pictures, Images and Photos

1. The third room. Lions that haven't eaten in three years are dead. That one was easy, right?

2. The woman was a photographer. She shot a picture of her husband, developed it, and hung it up to dry (shot; held under water; and hung).

3. Charcoal, as it is used in barbecuing.

4. Sure you can name three consecutive days, yesterday, today, and tomorrow!

5. The letter e, which is the most common letter used in the English language, does not appear even once in the paragraph.

How did you do? They sure are easy when you know the answers.

Now that you've had your brain exercise for the day - it's time for a wee NAP!! Don't sleep too long - tomorrow is SPRING

A buyer from has become a very dear friend to me through OLA. I'm sure many know what an asset she is to OLA....VHSQUEEN.....just sent me this really funny but true story of a fellow senior. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did. She added some needed brevity to my day and I thank her!!!

George Phillips , an elderly man, from Meridian, Mississippi, was going up to bed, when his wife told him that he'd left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window. George opened the back door to go turn off the light, but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things.

He phoned the police, who asked "Is someone in your house?"

He said "No," but some people are breaking into my garden shed and stealing from me.

Then the police dispatcher said "All patrols are busy. You should lock your doors Photobucket and an officer will be along when one is available."

George said, "Okay."

He hung up the phone and counted to 30.

Then he phoned the police again.

"Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people stealing things from my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them now because I just shot them." and he hung up.

Within five minutes, six Police Cars,Photobucket a SWAT Team, a Helicopter Photobucket, two Fire Trucks, a Paramedic, and an Ambulance Photobucket showed up at the Phillips' residence, and caught the burglars red-handed.

One of the Policemen said to George, "I thought you said that you'd shot them!"

George said, "I thought you said there was nobody available!"
