STUFF YOU MIGHT NOT WANT TO KNOW


I think if you buy a computer, the store should just throw in an extra just in case the first one dies.  Don't you? (lol) Then all Bloggers can have backup computers so we can still - you know...blog(lol)  For those who didn't know, that's why I've been missing in action for a while.  But I'm back...sort of, because there are still lots of Christmas movies to watch.

Also last month I had to get a colonoscopy, and all went well, but the preparation is the pits!(lol)  But before they knocked me out with propofol (yep, the same medication that  Michael Jackson used), I asked the nurses and doctors in the room what in the world made them want to check people's butts?  After they all got done laughing, the anesthesiologists threw their hands up and said "hey we only pay attention to you from the neck up", which made me giggle.  But the handsome surgeon smiled and said the thing we should probably say is that we're committed to finding cancer early and saving lives. I was pretty cool with that. 

Image result for siblings wordWhy in the world is everyone starting to use the word 'sibling'?  According to the dictionary "two or more children or offspring having one or both parents in common. A brother or sister" is considered a sibling.   So when did we stop calling them brothers and sisters? Aren't these the same people we fought with, laughed with or ate dinner with as kids?  I hear this word way more than I should on tv programs, how-to shows,  talk shows on the radio, entertainment news, and lately in normal conversations. Is it just me?

Image result for james bond logoDid you know that Sean Connery played James Bond in 7 films between 1962 and 1983, and that he wore a hairpiece in every one?  Roger Moore also played in 7. There have been a total of 12 Bonds over the years going all the way back to 1954, but some turned down the famed role.  They would be Hugh Jackman, Cary Grant, Liam Neeson, Burt Reynolds and Clint Eastwood.  Someone who didn't turn down the role is the new 007, Lashana Lynch, who will be James Bond's successor in the new movie No Time to Die scheduled for release in April 2020.  Who was your favorite Bond?
Image result for lemon pie
Arizona is second to California in lemon production, so of course lemon pie is their most popular pie.  I love the flavor of lemo too.

Image result for cold virus gifYIKES!  Have you heard that there are 200+ viruses that can cause the cold?  Also, those that sleep less than 7 hours a night are more likely to get a cold, so sleep in when you can.

Image result for diet coke bubbles gifIf you're really, really thirsty when flying and trying to watch calories, you may want to pass on Diet Coke.  Those bubbles take so long to go down while pouring that flight attendants pull out their hair in frustration.  They can  actually fill a total of 3 drinks in the time it takes to pour 1 Diet Coke, wasting valuable time for you and them. A study done by the Illinois State University agrees that Diet Coke has high levels of carbon dioxide which makes it a whole lot more fizzy.

Image result for returning clothes clipart
According to a recent poll, 13% of people have done this at least once in their life.  If you guessed purchasing something, wearing it once, then returning it, you go to the head of the class.  How about you? 72% say they've never done it.

 Image result for who has lisa ling interviewedEvery Sunday on CNN, This is Life with Lisa Ling comes on, where she gets the scoop on various groups of people.  As an investigative journalist, she's talked to those addicted to opiods, female Marines, members of the gang MS-13, twins, divorced dads, phone addicts, militia members and lots more.  This past weekend she hooked up with a group of people I've heard about, but never actually met - Swingers.
Image result for lisa ling swingers



Image result for swinging from a tree gif
Nope, I'm not talking about these kind of swingers
If you check the Internet, the definition for a Swinger is this: 
  1. a lively and fashionable person who goes to a lot of social events.
    "one of the oldest swingers in town"

  2. a person who engages in group sex or the swapping of sexual partners.
    "a twilight world of swingers and wife-swapping"
 During the show Lisa Ling visited the couple above who have been swinging for years in Texas, and actually teach others.  Then she visited Naughty in N'awlins, which is the largest Swinger Convention in the world where more than 1000 couples hang out all over Bourbon Street, and pretty much takes over a very large hotel in the French Quarter.  These people don't believe in monogamy.

One of things I found interesting were the amount of older couples there who had been married for 30, 40 and 50 years, and most say that they are looking for something exciting to do.  But there's more than just sex going and include plenty of seminars from specialists and a huge parade.
Image result for naughty in nawlins parade

For those who think this is a massive free for all where anyone can show up, that's not the case. The convention is restricted to couples only, and street clothing is not allowed.  So Lisa Ling had the choice to go naked, or in pajamas only.(lol)  Cameras weren't allowed, but we did get to see pajama clad Ling hiding her mini camera so we could hear some of the naughty that was going on. 


Uh... I don't judge anyone who chooses to live this lifestyle because it is consensual, but it's not for Lisa Ling or me.  It's already hard enough to keep up with one partner, let alone 2, 3 or 4 (lol), nd I do believe in monogamy. But how about you?  Is this lifestyle for you?

If you missed this event, feel free to sign up for others.

  1. Glad all went well.... But oh yes, the "going" the day before!!!!

    Perhaps 'sibling' is more Politically Correct? -tongue in cheek- That old brother and sister, convey a particular gender. And isn't that kind of passaaaaaaa, in today's "Micro Aggression" world??????

    Purchase... Wear... Return? I think that is awful!!!

    Yeah, who hasn't done some sort of zombie eating, some time? -sigh- Realize you did, put the junk away, and don't do it again!!!! -grin-

    1. LOL! Te day before was something else for sure! True, it probably is more politically correct, which I can appreciate. (lol) I had a friend was who was super rich, and would return clothing all the time. Could never understand it. I've definitely done the zombie thing, probably a lot more than should(lol) Hugs, RO

  2. I feel SO bad. I had NO idea you had a colonoscopy and I didn't even make you a card. Not that I make cards. I was also going to send you a message on Veterans Day, but life got in the way. I've had more fires than CA and they are all still blazing (grin). I hope all is well now.

    My friend Scott made my computer for me. He put it together based on my specifications. It is going great and I expect it will through the next 10 years. I've only gotten ONE computer I didn't have made for me and it was a Dell. It lasted less than 2 years. The first one I had made for me lasted through grad school and beyond. I only upgraded because it didn't even have a hard drive and ran DOS, while I needed something with
    windows. A friend in the neighborhood made the second one for me and it lasted 10 years. The Windows versions got so old, I had to get a computer that could be updated. That's when I got the Dell. I replaced it with this one because it was so slow and got too hot. I hope you got a good warranty.

    I love lemon pie and remember picking huge lemons at my friend's house in CA. I've never returned clothes I've worn, but I know people who have.

    I also believe in monogamy. It just isn't right IMO. It would feel like cheating, something I'm very much opposed to.

    I'm thankful for YOU. That kitty reminds me of the young one I have, especially when he wants to be fed.

    So glad to see you back online. Stay safe and warm, please.

    1. The colonoscopy prep was the worst, but I'm glad it went well. I was more frustrated over the constant old I had for 6 months that turned out to be bronchitis, then turned into pneumonia!(lol) Much better these days though, and just playing catch up. Wow! You got some great deals with your computers. My battery got too hot too, and that's why I now have a new Dell too. Just a headache!(lol) That Swinger thing was something else, and definitely NOT for me. (lol) The flavor of lemon is almost as yummy as a cheeseburger Elizabeth! (lol) I'm thankful for you too and sending some hugs your way! RO

  3. I forgot to mention. When writing, especially journal articles, sibling is preferred to brothers or sisters or step-brothers, step-sisters, half brothers, half sisters. As for SAYING it on TV, that is something I've not heard (but I don't watch much TV).

  5. When I had my colonoscopy last year, the last thing I did before they had me "assume the position" was have them stow my phone. The anesthesiologist said, "Are you sure you don't want to take a selfie first?" I laughed out loud... I said, "You know that's going to happen. As soon as the selfie generation starts aging into colonoscopies, our FB feed will be filled up with people on gurneys with a row of doctors, cheesin' behind them."

    Regarding Brian's "wallet photos," when I was going through my checkout paperwork, I was reading the findings, then turned a page only to be confronted with a giant, 5X7 full color photo of my colon. I was like, "Jesus! Shouldn't there be a printed warning before they spring that on you?" You don't just unleash a colon on someone like that...

  6. sorry about above Ro - wish there was an edit button for spelling errors.
    One man is enough! I don't care what others do, I don't think it's right or wrong. It doesn't hurt me and as long as their children are not involved I am fine with it. Who am I to judge. But one is enough for me.
    I never say siblings so now I will have to pay attention to this.
    Yes, one should get a spare computer when you buy one. It should be just like if you get a laptop you get a case. I buy a PC I get a small laptop just in case. :-)
    Hey Ro, made more pepper jelly from my garden peppers. This time it is far hotter. Instead of following the recipe of only 8 peppers with full seeds etc. I used 12. it's got a bite now. I like this version far better. I had it over goat cheese and GF crackers. Yummo
    Oh and did you know that Sean Connery thinks it is okay to smack a woman around from time to time? Yes, he said this on a TV interview. He said, sometimes it is necessary. WTH? I no longer like the man or will watch any of his shit now.

    1. I agree, since that lifestyle is very much consensual, definitely not my business, but like you, I'm all the way monogamous. I know I don't have the proper temperament to be committed in that lifestyle. I sure wish I could find an ad person to agree with me when it comes to extra computers(lol) Yes, I've heard that Sean Connery was abusive, which saddened me, because I felt he was an amazing actor as James Bond. Not only was he abusive, he was also a serial cheater, and I felt badly for his wife. I wonder how he would have felt if a man wanted to knock him around 'just because'. Yay to more yummy pepper jelly. Really love that stuff, and it works well in quite a few recipes. You're quite the chef. Hugs and more hugs, and hope you're feeling well these days. RO

  10. Lots of stuff I didn't know and will probably will forget them by tomorrow.

    I did saw one Christmas movie but sadly it wasn't great but I would watch more just because they're there.

    It's definitely nice to have a second computer when you buy one because they really don't last long. I'm glad you have a working computer again.

  11. I hope the colonoscopy results came back normal. My brother had one last month as well.

    I wish I had a backup computer. I heard that Microsoft is stopping support for Windows 7 and that's what I have. I hope it doesn't cause any problems for me or I'll be without a computer too.

  12. 2-for-1 computer deals would be a good idea, but I suspect they'll eventually be cheap enough that people will just buy extras anyway. I have a spare computer, but it's a Windows 8 laptop and I never really got used to it, so I just use it when the main one is being fixed.

    I've never had a colonoscopy, butt thanks for getting to the bottom of what's behind this asstonishing procedure, since it had reared its head anyway.

    Bridesmaid for hire? How long will it be until we get Bride (or Groom) for hire? Appearances are everything in these situations.

    I thought Detroit was the leader in lemon production. I guess my info is out of date.

    Never mind the diet Coke, I don't understand why they serve alcohol on airplanes. Don't they already have enough trouble with people behaving like jerks?

    "Zombie eating" -- definitely not. I won't even eat animal corpses, so human ones would be..... Oh, I see what you mean. Never mind.

    But how about you? Is this lifestyle for you?

    Doubt it, but never tried it (not exactly). For those who are into swinging or whatever, chacun ร  son goรปt. The world is full of people who disapprove of things. If you live your life the way someone else thinks you should want to live it, you won't get another life to live the way you actually did want to live it.

    I'd definitely skip the cruises, though. Can't stand being on the water, and those cruises seem to be prone to virus outbreaks that have decidedly un-erotic effects.

    1. You always have such a way with words that always cracks me up!(lol) It will be great if the price drops to below $100 while I'm still around for sure when it comes to computers. I've seen the scenario of brides for hire on Hallmark Channel movies, and I agree, it's a really good idea if you need to impress the family for the holidays.(lol) I think their intent was maybe to help people feel more comfy while flying? Over the years, it's just turned into a nightmare though. Zombie eating?!(lol) Definitely don't have the temperament for swinging, but like you, I don't judge what other people choose to do in their lives as long as it's consensual and not abusive. I've heard of too many things happening on cruises these days, so it's a pass for me, and I can use that money on other stuff instead. Hope your day is as amazing as you are! Hugs, RO

  18. It must've been computer season :( I also had a computer die, leaving me in need of a replacement at short notice.

    Colonoscopy is unpleasant, and I look forward to the day when a less intrusive procedure will do. The prep work alone is hard. I most often hear "sibling" when someone doesn't know the sex of the person referred to and "siblings" when there are brothers and sisters. Sean Connery is always Bond for me, but I like the others, too. Some of the movies are better than others lol, but I'm open to new Bonds. I'll gladly join you for a piece of lemon pie :) I often watch TV or read while eating, but I remain mindful of my eating all the while. I've been reading while eating since the cereal box days of my childhood lol My only swinging will take place on a porch swing (or maybe a playground swing if kids aren't around).

  25. I think it's very important that we do some preventative measures to keep us from getting fatal diseases. What makes you decide to get a colonoscopy, Ro? Were you anxious? And I totally agree with you regarding buying computers. I do feel that since getting my MacBook in 2012, it's still working fine. I mean, besides it being slow, that is. So I guess my point is, Apple is always a good investment. :)

    1. You're so right about that Joyous Joy, but most of us either say we're too busy, don't have the money, or think it will go away on its own, and won't go to get checked out. Visiting the doctor sure is no fun for me, that's for sure.(lol) I have to get checked every 5 years, which is quite a treat.(lol) Mostly, I feel embarrassed because the doctors are always so gorgeous.(lol) Everyone keeps telling to go Apple, but I don't know about that yet.(lol) Sure hope you're doing well, and love it when you stop by! Hugs, RO

  26. Welcome back! I could really use a new laptop, so hopefully I can get that sooner than later - before my computer completely falls apart on me. Getting a cold is the worst - they just linger for so long, and I'm not surprised there are so many strains. Not terribly long ago I learned you can't get the same cold twice, so you can't pass the same cold back and forth.

    1. I definitely feel like I need an extra to keep around for sure. I hope you find the perfect one to fit your needs. My cold has been lingering for quite some time, then turned into other stuff, which has not been fun(lol) Hope you're doing well Lauren, and sending some hugs your way! RO

  27. Welcome back to blogging, and many thanks for all the interesting 'stuff'

    My favourite Bond is Sean Connery … although Daniel Craig has done a good job :)

    All the best Jan

  28. Welcome back RO, glad you have your computer sorted.
    My favourite bond was Roger Moore. I never return clothes I have worn and I agree with you, 1 husband is enough for me! Because we have 2 lemon trees in our garden I'm always making things with lemons and also give plenty of lemons away.
    Have a lovely week.

    1. Thanks a bunch Sami, and yay to having a computer to work on. Really had me out of sorts for a little while. Even though he was abusive and a cheater, as an actor, I really enjoyed Sean Connery in the James Bond role. My second favorite is definitely Daniel Craig, who's about to give the role up soon. My goodness, how blessed you are to have lemons right at your door!!! I would totally love that. Please feel free to send along a few this way.(lol) Hugs RO

  29. Hey rockin Ro! Glad to have you back! Hope the new computer is awesome. I didn't actually know that about Connery, although you can sorta tell I guess in the last couple he did. I kinda liked Roger Moore as Bond, mainly for his dry wit. You could tell her was sorta having fun w/ it? I have no idea who the new Bond is, I will have to look that person up!

    Colonoscopies- ugh. My doctor said I'm getting to the point where I should get one, since my mom had colon cancer so I'm higher risk I guess. Not looking forward to it! That graphic cracked me up tho.

    Swingers O.o. Yeah, not my thing lol...

    1. Hey There Gorgeous Greg, and hope all is well and warm where you are! A lot of people really seemed to like Moore as Bond, but he wasn't my fave. Even though Sean Connery was a serial cheater and abusive as a real person, he totally rocked the James Bond role for sure. My second fave is definitely Daniel Craig, who seems to have a cool kind of swagger about him. Asking questions like those is one of the reasons people call me 'quirky"(lol), but mostly I'm just curious about so much stuff. Go ahead and get one soon. It's better to just get it done and over, then you have one less thing to worry about. I agree with you on the Swinging thing too.(lol) Happy Wednesday and hugs. RO

    2. Sean Connery was a great Bond, for sure. The first three movies are big favorites of mine, they're kinda timeless? I liked Pierce brosnan too at first- each one who played the role brought something to it. I agree about Daniel Craig- he's good as well, more serious, tougher maybe? That's too bad to hear about Connery though, I didn't know that about him.

      I saw something just the other day about the things Bond did back in the 60's that would NOT fly today- the swatting women on the backside casually and all that misogynistic stuff- and I had to laugh. So true!

      Anyway ravishing Ro hope your week is going swimmingly!!! :)

    3. James Bond is the ultimate bad boy for sure, Gorgeous Geg, and back then no one thought anything at all about that kind of stuff going on back then. They're the perfect movie that describes how far we've cme and how things have changed. I agree they're classics for sure, and I've been known to binge watch Goldfinger, Dr.No and Diamonds are Forever, I definitely would want to hang out with Daniel Craig as James Bond for just a day to experience all that adventure.(lol) Happy Friyay, Gorgeous Greg!

  31. Sorry to hear you've been having computer troubles, but glad to see you back online now. It's hard to pick a favorite bond but I think I'm going to go with Sean Connery just because I've loved him in pretty much everything he's ever been in.

  32. I'm glad to see you're back online now! And I've watched Lisa Ling since she was a reporter on Channel One and I was in school! I love her but I didn't see this particular segment. I'm definitely not the swinger type but I'm not ready for a serious relationship either. I need my independence first lol.

    1. She's a reporter who's definitely not afraid to tackle difficult or unusual topics for sure Adria. By now, it's probably on Youtube along with everything else in life. (lol) I agree, independence is important, and no need to get serious f you're not ready. Like you, I definitely don't have the temperament to Swing in that world, but if others are into it, great for them. Hope you're doing well and Happy Friyay! RO

  33. I know the stress of a computer dying and being forced to A) choose a new one after not paying attention to computers since I bought mine and B) loading and getting adjusted to the new one. Yikes!

    I haven't had a colonoscopy yet, but I know it won't be long. Anything to stay cancer free. :( Hope your results are good.

    I'm old school on James Bond so it's Sean Connery for me though I'm always curious about each new one.

    Whew, that NYC view is something.

    That's funny about the diet coke on the plane. I avoid all fizzing drinks anyway because it wrecks havoc when combined with the altitude and sitting still too long for me.

    Monogamy all the way for me. I'm just not that generous when it comes to my marriage partner and I'm definitely not up to spreading my own charms about. :)

    Have a great week, Radiant Ro!

    1. Oh my goodness, the headache of not being able to get on the laptop to get work done was crazy for sure, and no way can I write or blog from a tiny little phone!(lol) I'm just glad that I was able to find what I was looking for without it taking too long. I'm a fan of Sean Connery as James Bond, but not as a person. He regularly cheated on his wife of many years and was abusive too. Very sad. My second fave is Daniel Craig, who seems like the ultimate bad boy. I can see him as the inspiration for lots and lots of romance stories. I drink sparkling water, but have stayed away from soda for the past 3 years or so. Ditto, I'm not spreading any part of me around, and don't want to be with anyone who's been spreading his around either(lol) However, as long as it's consensual, I'm cool if other friends or family choose to live that lifestyle as long as they don't try to include me in it. Hugs and Happy Friyay! RO

  34. You had me a colonoscopy.
    I may have to have one (now that we are at the TMI phase) and I was thinking I hope the doctor is cute. Yep, I’m vacuous.
    And Lisa Ling has done some cool reporting. Yay swingers!

    1. LOL - I agree - that may have been TMI, but we're among friends here, right?(lol) If you're at that age, or have a history in your family, please get one, and you never know -you may snag a cute doctor like I did. Ms. Ling definitely isn't afraid to go there, and I admire her courage. I also love that people respect what she does too. It's always fun when you visit. Hugs, RO

  35. Yes colonoscopies are a pain in the A... But everyone should get checked. I get them every 5 years because I have a close relative that died from colon cancer 20 some years ago. The prep is the hard part but it's worth it to know what's going on in there! I love all your tidbits of information, good to see you back and blogging!

  44. I am not a fan of who they are having be the next James Bonde so not sure I even want to see it to be honest. My favorite Bond has been Sean Connery and Pierce Brosnan though.

    Sorry to hear about computer problems. What I have now is both a desktop and a laptop and an ipad....so that if anything happens I ALWAYS have a backup hehe
