STUFF AND JUST MORE STUFF


My list is pretty long(lol), but the most recent embarrassing thing that happened was when I paid for gas, then immediately drove off with the nozzle still in the tank.  Then having to go back to put the nozzle where it was supposed to be was surely the walk(drive) of shame.(lol) That's what I get for rushing, right?
This happened 2 years ago, and my face is still bright red. Has this ever happened to you?

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory from 1971 and Charlie & the Chocolate Factory from 2005 have 2 really distinctive differences. 
             
a)  Willy Wonka used 150,000 gallons of water, cream and chocolate for the river, causing the set to really smell pretty gross by the end of filming.  Also, unless a scene called for eating it, the candy was all fake.
           
 b)  Charlie used 245,000 gallons of fake chocolate for the river, but the lollipops on the trees and the giant pink sugar canes were all very real.

Coconut oil seems to have a zillion uses, but did you know that it's considered antibacterial and may reduce the itchiness and irritation of a bug bite?  No need to waste money by purchasing it from a health food store.  It's reasonably priced in places like Aldi or Big Lots.


Raise your hand if you're a fan of eating late at night. Feel less guilty by ordering  Nightfood, the yummy low calorie ice cream without that high volume of sugar that could keep you up all night watching talk shows or reality tv.  Who wouldn't want to eat something as decadent as Midnight Chocolate or Full Moon Vanilla?  Here in NC it can be found at Lowe's Supermarket, but it can also be ordered online at www.nightfood.com.


Who's ready to admit they've been watching Family Feud since 1976 when Richard Dawson was the host?  There have been a total of 6 hosts since the show started with Steve Harvey currently filling the role now.


Mr. Dawson was known for kissing the women on the show, and sometimes it was controversial, but he believed it made them more comfortable, and after a survey proved him right, it was full steam ahead. In 1981 the 49 year old game show host met the love of his life and ended up kissing then 24 year old contestant Gretchen Johnson a whopping 4 times during the show. 
Richard clearly attracted to Gretchen
Fast forward 10 years later when he was 59 and they were married.  He considered himself a lucky man, and they were together happily until he sadly passed on in 2012 of esophageal cancer.


Speaking of kissing, International Kissing Day is on July 6, not to be confused with National Kissing Day which happened last month.

According to expert Danny Lipford, we can do our own preventive maintenance on washing machines and save money on service calls by rinsing 3 times every 3 months to get rid of the all the detergent that builds up over time. 
Make sure the machine is completely empty then rinse with hot water and 1/4 cup bleach, 2nd rinse is hot water and 1/4 cup white vinegar.  Then rinse with just hot water the 3rd time. 

Is your passport powerful? According to the Henley Passport Index, these are the passports that allow you to travel from country to country without special approval or Visas.  Can you guess the countries that tie for #1 on the list?  That would be Japan and Singapore who allow travel into 189 nations, with South Korea, Finland and Germany following at a close second allowing you easy access into 187 nations.   The US comes in at #6 with 183. If you're wondering who's at the bottom of the list, and considered one of the worst passports to have, that would be Afghanistan with the low number of just 25.


Speaking of passports, did you know it's possible to get a passport lightening fast?  If you don't mind paying the extra cash + additional government fees, visit www.rushmypassport.com.

Don't feel like waiting in that long line to get your checked luggage?  Ask to gate check your bag making it last to be loaded.  Luggage loaded last is normally the first to be placed on the conveyor belt, slowing down your wait time, and making you look like a star as you coast out of the airport.
If your kitty ever gets lost, www.lostmykitty.com and www.pawboost.com, are great resources.

In the state of Connecticut, a pickle is not officially a pickle unless it bounces.

In the city of Hartford, Connecticut:
1) It's illegal for a husband to kiss his wife on Sunday
2) You can't cross the street while walking on your hands.

3) You may not educate a dog.

  1. HeHe! Chapter One...
    Time upon a once...And! The lord said unto
    Moses.."Come forth..Come Forth" He came Fifth,
    and lost his beer money..! Amen! :)

    I've been called Willy Wonka on many occasions..
    Just rolls off the tongue l suppose..Always loved
    the 1971 version..NOT! The later one, can't be
    doing with Johnny Depp anyway..Useless! :(.

    Well.Over here we have things like Calgon for
    washing machines, it's a brand registered
    trademark of a water softener, and bath and
    beauty products. The original product consisted
    of powdered sodium hexametaphosphate...
    There are other products like Mr Muscle, Persil,
    Dettol, basically they are all descalers..!

    A few benefits of kissing...
    Kissing can boost your immune system..
    Kissing can improve your dental health..
    Kissing floods your brain with feel-good chemicals..
    Kissing can prolong men's lives and fatten their paychecks..
    Kissing can lower your blood pressure and cholesterol..
    Kissing uses a surprising number of muscles..
    Kissing can relieve stress..
    The fear of kissing is known as Philemaphobia..
    AND! If you believe ALL that..go out and kiss someone,
    or something..even a cat or a dog..! HeHe! Joke there
    somewhere...!!! :o).

    And..Tomorrow is the 4th of July...
    Silly little story then...
    The Fourth of July was approaching, and Miss Pelham, the nursery school teacher, took the opportunity to tell her class about patriotism. 'We live in a great country,' she announced. 'One of the things we should be happy is that, in this country, we are all free.' Trevor, who was a little boy in her class, came walking up to her from the back of the room. He stood with his hands on his hips and said loudly, 'I'm not free. I'm four.' :o).

    1. That's pretty cool that you've been called Willy Wonka. I loved both versions of the movie, and took me into a fantasy world for awhile. Back in the day, I probably would be kissing everyone, but now, I tend to hug when people let me(lol) Very funny nursery school joke too! Hugs, RO

  2. Hi RO :) Oh hee hee hee, you poor thing! No the gas thing has never happened to me and I really hope it never does!! I love coconut oil, I use it for so many things, but rarely for cooking funny enough! Oh Richard Dawson...I remember him from Hogan's Heroes too. I used to think he was a pervert when I watched Family Feud back in the day lol! Happy 4th of July to you!! :)

I hope it never happens to anyone I know either because surely it would end up on Facebook or Instagram.(lol) You're so funny. I think a lot of people may have thought he was strange, but he really did think he was making people get over their nervousness about being on stage. Hope your 4th was amazing! Hugs, RO

    1. They actually surveyed people to see how they felt about all that kissing, and it turned out that everyone wanted to see him keep doing it. Your eating at night hasn't affected you at all, because you're still slim, trim and beautiful! Hope your 4th was fun! Hugs, RO

    1. Replacing broken washing machines or having them repaired can be quite expensive, so I love that tip too. The nozzle was still in my gas tank,ending up on the ground. Luckily, I didn't pull the whole thing out of the gas machine itself, which would have been even more horrible! Thanks a bunch for your kind words, and hope your day was as special as you are! Hugs, RO

  8. Love your lead up to the 4th of July post, dear RO. I was with a friend when I was a teen who forgot to put the speaker back on the post at the drive-in. Does that count?

    I never saw either Willy Wonka movies, and it sounds like I don't think they would be worth seeing, either. Somehow reading about that smell takes the fun out of watching either film.

    Great info on the washing machine. I use Persil, which I think does the same thing. But to be on the safe side, I'll follow your advice once and see if it helps.

    I'm all for kissing, but I'll never turn down a hug!

    All I can say is, as stupid as Kansas is at times, I think I'd rather live here than in Connecticut.

    Have a joyous Independence Day and thanks for being you. Thanks for your previous service and your great vet status, too.

    1. I'll bet your and your friend were a blast to hang out with back in the day Elizabeth, and I would have laughed and laughed! I've seen both Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory so many times over the years. Something about candy and the fantasy of another world was intriguing. I agree, the smell must have been absolutely horrible back then!(lol) I'm not into the kissing like I used to be, but like you, I'll take a hug any day!Definitely some strange laws in Connecticut, but I like the idea of the cold weather. Hope your day was stupendous, and I'm sending hugs to all of you! RO

  9. Nightfood- I like that! I must admit I am a fan of snacking at night, at times. Sometimes healthy, sometimes not lol. And I did not know that about coconut oil, actually!

    Love the Willy Wonka trivia!

    I'm so glad there are resources like lostmykitty and whatnot. Is there any worse feeling?

    Some of those old laws are... kinda weird haha!

    1. Eating at night was something I did all the time because I kept strange hours, but I've stopped it entirely in my quest to get more healthy. Still, the thought of Nightfood sounds very tempting and yummy.(lol) I adored both movies so much, and still watch them over and over. Those laws are definitely weird, and always funny too! Hope your 4th was fun and relaxing! Hugs, RO

  10. You just reminded me of something I totally forgot. My dad rented a camper or trailer, I can't quite recall. He was trying to align it to get gas and tapped the pump. They had to call a tow truck because they were afraid if he moved it, the pump could leak or worse, blow.

  12. At least it sounds like you caught yourself driving off with the gas nozzle before you ripped the tube right out of the gas pump. People have been known to do that.

    I don't know how Willy Wonka's factory avoided getting shut down. Food being made under insanitary conditions, a staff of illegal alien Oompa Loompas, several serious accidents involving visiting kids, no regular Health Department inspections.....also, Johnny Depp's character looked like the kind of person you might not want hanging around kids.

    If Biden doesn't get the nomination, maybe he can host Family Feud.

    Gotta look into that wearable giant fish luggage. It would certainly be easy to recognize on the conveyor belt.

    I had to get one of those rush passports once. They really are very fast.

    So on Sundays in Hartford the husband can kiss anyone else, just not his wife? Or how does that work? What about when National Kissing Day falls on a Sunday?

    1. LOL! You have the best sense of humor, and I find myself giggling out loud picturing certain situations. The Giant Fish luggage sure does look fun doesn't it? Wow! I think Hartford may have a serious problem on their hands with National Kissing Day, don't you?(lol) Hugs, RO

  13. I haven't done that exactly but my brain has a habit of digging up embarrassing moments from anywhere in my life and shoving it to the front just as I'm trying to go to sleep. It's hard to relax when you're reliving your top ten mortifying moments from 8th grade. Love the story about the family feud host and his wife. I had no idea! And now I want chocolate but I'm very rarely too far away from wanting chocolate.

  14. I've never driven off with the nozzle still in the tank but that's a good one. I think my most embarrassing time was when I was singing in choir for the school and fainted.

I think if I were in your place, not that I drive at all, I wouldn't have gone back at all. I'll just throw away the nozzle and pretend it never happened.

  37. How fun to hear that the chocolate river from those movies was really there, that's a ton of water and chocolate they need for that.

    I know coconut oil has lots of uses, but never heard that it works against bug bites, will have to keep that in mind for next time when I get bitten.

    Once in a while I let my washing machine do a wash with no clothes and put it on the highest temperature setting. I hate the smell of bleach so never used that, but I've added some vinegar a few times.

But without the late snacks, I've seen a difference, and I've also stopped working super late at night. But I still get up at 4:30am in the morning.(lol) Like you, I'm getting in my ice cream early in the day. I'm sure looking forward to 20 degree weather one day soon.(lol) Hugs, RO
