If you're looking for a reason to snack on trail mix, August 31 is your day.
If you've ever seen any of the past 15 seasons of Project Runway, you may have noticed that the models were always tiny. This year, they've mixed it up with models ranging from size 0 to size 22. For some of the designers that change was rough to deal with, but they've been making it work.
I LOVE LUCY
Did you ever watch I Love Lucy? If so, you may have noticed how good a job Ethel & Fred did of making us laugh. In real life, however, William Frawley & Vivian Vance did not like one another at all, and it started right from the very first show. Vivian complained to someone that she thought William was too old to be her husband, and it really went downhill from there.
You know all those rocks that your kids keep picking up at the beach or in the local park? Why not turn them into decorative artwork by painting them yourself, or letting the kids get involved? It's also a great way to relax.
BOOKS ON LOAN
Do you still go to the library? I do all the time, and in fact they all know me by name making me feel like a mini-celebrity. I get to go behind the counter to look at all the new releases they haven't put out yet, and I never have to use my library card.
But the library I grew up with isn't really the same anymore. Kids gather around one computer to chat with others on social media, they play games, and quiet study is very rare.
I do see some kids taking out books with their own library card, but most of the young people spend more time on the computers.
What's really wonderful is that effective September, our local library will be open 7 days a week. Yay!
The downside of using any library of course, is that those books need to be returned...eventually.
What in the world would possess a store as large as Best Buy to sell cases of water for $42.00 in Texas to all those people in need? Even worse, they told the news people that they don't even sell cases of water normally! Other stores were doing the same thing.
How could someone sleep at night hiking up the cost of food, bedding or gas when people are dying, trying to find their families or standing in water up to their knees with nothing but the clothing on their backs?
I don't get it.
