MORE STUFF YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW

Usually my spammy comments on the blog invite me to reach out to spiritual advisors, voodoo doctors to cure my barrenness, guaranteed riches, or to cast a spell on a nonexistent cheating spouse.  When I say usually, it means I'm bombarded with pretty darn lengthy instructions that I have to delete fairly regularly once I've stopped laughing.


Recently things took a slight turn in topic when Cristina Trevor from Italy included me in a plea for boys and girls to join the Porn Industry by sharing a few naked pics at beatenblood2@gmail.com.  If you click on Cristina's name, you'll see what looks to be a fake picture on Google with close to 1200 views, and I was tempted to send an email  with a picture of a cat to see what would actually happen. (lol) Meanwhile,  even if I looked like  Beyonce, Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) or Sofia Vergara, that would be a hard NO THANKS, Cristina.(lol)

HALLOWEEN DECORATING
It's Season 8 of Halloween Wars on The Food Network, and once again I'm shocked and impressed at the amazing ways these artists come up with frightening ways to scare us and the judges.  Can you imagine actually digging around inside of a humongous pumpkin like this one? (lol)
Six teams each consist of a sculptor, sugar artist and cake decorator as they work on winning the grand prize of $50,000.  No calories here, I promise.(lol)  Are you good at carving pumpkins?

SOUTH DAKOTA
Mount Rushmore started being sculpted in 1927, and was finished in 1941. That sure is a long time, right? The cost to build this famous piece was a little over $1 million dollars, and every year is visited by 3 million people.



Walt Disney World opened for the first time on October 1, 1971, and they were slammed with a little over 400,000 visitors!  It's unbelievable, but admission back then for adults was just $3.50, and kids were only charged $1.  These days, if you don't score discounts or package deals, prices can be as high as $105 per adult. YIKES!

LOVING THE LIBRARY
Are you like me, and can't get enough of books?  You can save yourself lots of time, space and money by downloading  https://meet.libbyapp.com/. This app lets you borrow thousands of ebooks or audiobooks without the need for any extra equipment.  It even keeps track of your books, and allows you to sample a book first.   All you need is your library card, a comfy couch and a yummy cheeseburger to set the mood.


FARMERS RULE
Do you have a Farmer's Market where you live?  If so, wait until it rains to head out for a visit and to really save.  A Farmer's market probably doesn't have refrigerators to keep all that produce fresh, and their time is limited to sell it all.  So instead of letting it go to waste while waiting for dry weather, they can still make some income by selling it to customers at a discount.


KUDOS
My friend Elizabeth has once again shown off her artistic talent and creativity by sending me  all this adorable black and white washi tape that I simply adore. Most everyone knows I love Washi Tape, but great designs done in black are hard to find. I'm already working on using a black, white and silver theme for the month of January in my 2019 Planner! Can you see me doing the Happy Dance and thanking Elizabeth?
Hey There Elizabeth and thanks again!

Santa Clara Police Department
KINDNESS IS KEY
Sixteen year old Rhami Zeini of Santa Barbara California was definitely raised properly and understands the importance of doing the right thing.  




On September 16 while driving home from school, he spotted a purse lying in the middle of the road.  He got out of his vehicle, checked the bag for identification, and received the surprise of his life.  There was $10,000 cash inside, which was the largest amount of money he'd ever seen at one time.  He took it home to show his parents, then they all delivered the purse to the local police.  The police did find the rightful owner, who rewarded the 11th grader with $100. 
Rhemi said that if the roles were reversed, he would hope someone would do the same thing.  The owner believed that she had left her purse on the hood before driving off, and was very grateful.

If you need a quick snack with low calories, hold out until Wednesday, October 10, and celebrate National Angel Food Cake Day, all day long.  Of course, if you don't care about calories, add all kinds of chocolate sauce and other treats too! (lol)
