HERE'S SOME RANDOM STUFF

If you don't already know, I'm hopelessly addicted to television, movies and books, but not necessarily in that order.  Even though I've never read the series of 10 books written by Charlaine Harris that started with Real Murders in 1990, I'm hooked on the Aurora Teagarden Mystery Series on the Hallmark Movies and Mysteries Channel. If you're not a television watcher, but enjoy a good mystery, the books are available from eBay or Amazon.


There are 5 really good reasons that I watch these movies faithfully.


1)  Aurora's nickname is none other than RO (lol), and she's played by the fabulous Candace Cameron Bure of Full House from back in the day.


2)  Aurora has the best job of working in a library.
3)  Aurora is in charge of the Real Murder Club, and they somehow manage to get involved in all the murder cases in their community.
4)  There's a touch of romance 

5)  The person you think committed the murder definitely didn't do it(lol)


Way back in the day while I was a kid in the USAF, I had a close buddy who used to borrow my romance novels to use for pick up lines, and I was cool with that. But it was sure funny to see him actually use lines from books from Kathleen Woodiwiss, Julie Garwood, Judith McNaught, Danielle Steele and Virginia Henley.  There were times that I couldn't even contain my giggling because it just seemed so outrageous, but sometimes those lines really worked on lots of girls! 


He was also a great artist, and we used to love to see him draw scenery or people because they looked so realistic.  But one day I visited his dorm room, and you can probably imagine my shock when I saw all these charcoal drawings of ...gulp - vajayjays hanging on his wall. He started laughing when he saw the look on my face, and told me that he just liked drawing them because they seemed interesting.  I asked if he was taking pictures then drawing them, or if was using his imagination or something like that?  Nope, he was drawing them just because.  

I thought what he was doing was pretty strange back then, but apparently, lots of people are doing it these days.  If you don't believe me, check out Etsy.(lol)https://www.etsy.com/market/vagina_drawing
The Kansas City Library recently forgave late fees totalling $250,000, and effective July 1, all the people who lost their access were welcome back with no questions asked. 


By the way, Emily Canellos-Simms of Illinois holds the Guinness World Record for the heftiest library fine of $345.14 because she didn't return her book to the Kewanee Public Library in April 1955. She actually found Days and Deeds 47 years later, and paid the fine too.

YIKES, this is horrible! Did you know thieves are looking for certain kinds of cars making some more likely to be stolen?  According to a recent survey from the Highway Loss Data Institute, these new cars (Models 2016-2018) have the highest theft rate.
    1. Dodge Charger Hemi
    2. Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat 
    3. Infiniti Q50
    4. Infiniti QX80 
    5. GMC Sierra 1500  
    6. Dodge Challenger 
    7. Nissan Maxima
    8. Chevrolet Silverado 1500 
    9. Chrysler 300
    10. Mercedes-Benz S-Class 

Every spider I've ever seen looks pretty scary, but did you know that of the 40,000 species of spiders, there are only 12 that are dangerous to humans?  

Here's a tricky word for you - triskaidekaphobia, which means the actual fear of the number 13.  You may have noticed in your travels that when you got on the elevator of a really tall building, there was no 13th floor. Surprisingly 80% of these establishments that have been built made sure the 13th floor was missing.

Are you changing your underwear every day?  If not, you aren't alone, even if you're not willing to tell anyone.(lol) 

According to a recent survey of 1000 people willing to tell the truth by the underwear company Tommy John, about 45% of the respondents say they wear the same pair of underwear for 2 days or more, and 13% didn't mind admitting that they had worn the same pair for a week or more.  

Also, no shade, but statistically men are  2.5% more likely than women to wear their underwear for more than a week.  By the way, even squeaky clean underwear has over 10,000 living bacteria, so purchasing new underwear every 6 months to a year can minimize things like yeast, urinary tract or other bacterial infections that can make you sick.

According to the Journal of Social Psychology, those who performed random acts of kindness for 7 days increased their overall well being and feelings of happiness.  Make a friend or family member's day with a smiley face emoji, then keep it going with other kind acts with strangers throughout the day.

Most people assume that AARP and all those cool discounts are just for people who are 50+ years old, but you can actually get them at any age as long as you're willing to pay the $16 annual fee.  While most of the information listed on their website is geared towards older people, anyone can get access to deals on hotels, restaurants, car rentals and lots more.

CRUNCHY NO BAKE CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER BARS
INGREDIENTS(Mary Younkin)
1 1/2 Cups (263 g) SemiSweet Chocolate Chips
1 Cup (120 ml) Creamy Peanut Butter
1 Cup (120 ml) Honey
1/4 Cup (53 g) Unsalted Butter
3 Cups (120 g) Regular or Frosted Flakes or any crunchy cereal you enjoy

Place the chocolate Chips, peanut butter, honey and butter in a large glass mixing bowl, then microwave for 2 minutes on full power.  Remove from the microwave and stir until the chocolate is completely melted and it's all well combined.

Add in the cornflakes or cereal, then pour the entire mixture to an 8 inch (20 cm) square pan.  Smooth it all across the pan, then refrigerate until firm - about 2 to 4 hours.  Slice with a sharp knife,  store in an airtight  container and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.  Yummy!


Even though we may not agree on every topic, http://infidel753.blogspot.com/ is fabulously brilliant, opinionated, funny and kind.  Let me preface this by saying that if you're easily offended or have strong views about life in general that may cause you to become Internetically angry, his site may not be for you.  But I promise that something he says will get you talking, and you'll want to go back. Because of him, I met someone who wants to donate specifically to homeless female veterans and I was shocked and so happy!  Still if his personal rants turn you off,(lol) he graciously takes the time to point you to other blogs that are funny, artistic, thought provoking, or useless like mine.(lol)

  1. An underwear story:

    Back when I was in Jr High, we lived in a small subdivision in Columbus, OH. At one neighborhood gathering, a couple of our neighbor ladies were gently teasing a third neighbor lady about her husband, who was known to be kind of fussy. They conjectured that he has his underwear labeled, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, etc.

    My dad spoke up and said, "I think that's a great idea. In fact, I have my underwear labeled too... January, February, March..."

    The neighbor ladies didn't talk much to us after that.

    I was a avid tv and movie watcher for year and read often however as i grow older i have found a great shift. Now i read more and watch tv/movies a lot less. For the first 4 months of the year i did not turn on my television nor did i watch a movie though i read daily. I rarely watch tv in the summer as its just plain sucks and look forward to fall when the season begins and brings with it some of the more interesting shows. As for reading, well am currenty reading my 64th book for the year.

    have a great day.
    stay blessed.

    1. It's always interesting to see the changes we make while growing older. Pretty fascinating that you watched no tv for 4 months and you focused only on books! I bet you read some really great titles. True, it seems that during the summer months, there are lots more repeats, and like you I look forward to the new season. Yay to you for reading 64 books and the year isn't even over yet! Love that! Hugs, RO

  3. LOL. Your friend sounds like a hoot. We can hang. :) I've never heard of Charlaine Harris' murder mystery series. I only know her from her True Blood (Southern Vampire) series. That's interesting. Kinda like a modern day Agatha Christie.

One thing I can say is that I've been blessed to meet lots of interesting people, and I've laughed a lot, but they may be saying the same things about me Joyous Joy.(lol) Rick was quite a character, and there was never a dull moment for sure. Charlaine Harris is a talented author and loved by man. Hope you get the chance to read some of her older books. Hope you're having a great weekend! Hugs, RO

Even plastic ones will cause her to become hysterical and very frightened. She's been afraid of them for at least the last 30 years or so. Sure hope you're doing well and safe in Florida! Hugs, RO

  6. I'm sure I'm addicted to television, movies and books but they do make my day better.

    I've not read the Aurora books either but I also like the many movies, though I really didn't care much for the romance, I watch for the mysteries and the comedies. And Ro is a great name. I certainly enjoy them. I still remember watching Candace Cameron on Full House as DJ, she's great.

    Have a lovely day.

  8. Thanks for the link and the kind words! I appreciate it. I suppose I do rant a bit sometimes, but hey, the internet is the only venue where I can do that (without it being inappropriate, anyway). I do also post a lot of non-political stuff which I hope people will find interesting. I'd really rather write more about science, but that takes a lot more brain energy than the other stuff.

    Because of him, I met someone who wants to donate specifically to homeless female veterans

    Very glad to hear it! (If you know anyone who wants to donate to unemployed cantankerous atheist bloggers with a Greco-Roman fixation, feel free to put them in touch.....)

    Getting one's "pickup lines" from books written by women does at least show insight. It is interesting that it worked, though. My impression is that the male protagonists in romance novels are usually titled aristocrats or dashing brigands or vampires or something equally alluring, and that the same lines would probably be substantially less effective coming from men of more ordinary station. Unless of course your close buddy actually was a dashing aristocratic vampire.

    My own make of car is not on your list, but I've read that it's popular with thieves. I don't mind the fact that it's rather scruffy-looking on the outside, which hopefully will put them off. It's well-taken-care-of mechanically, which is what counts.

    I'm not surprised that there are 40,000 species of spiders. There are only four thousand species of mammals (and almost half of those are rodents), but six hundred thousand species of beetles. Looking at life on Earth, it's mostly creepy-crawlies when you get down to it. Just be glad they aren't any bigger than they are.

    Looking at that seafood festival sign, it always surprises me that some people are disgusted with spiders but would happily eat crabs. I mean, it's basically the same thing anatomically.

    If there are people in Reno who use ducks as sex toys, I suppose I can sort of see why other people have taken exception to it. I wouldn't want to be the cop who has to tell that bear he's lying down in the wrong place, though.

    1. You're quite welcome, and deserve a shout out. It's your blog so I say rant or discuss, or talk all you want.(lol) ll keep my eye out for donations to your blog too.(lol) I was as shocked as you are that it worked when I saw it happen for the first time. I mean he tried this at fast food restaurants, clubs, the commissary, and just about everywhere we went, and I was always entertained. back then I was reading a lot of historical romances, but there were plenty of contemporary Harlequin Romance millionaires too.(lol) My car is definitely not on the list either, and I'm cool with that too. OMG - 600,000 species of beetles sounds downright creepy, and I totally agree that I'm glad they're not bigger than us humans!!!!! LOL to the crab thoughts. I'm not a fan either. OMG - you are so funny! I wouldn't want to be that cop either, and I'm picturing that in my head. The duck correlation is just making me giggle like a kid. Hope your weekend is fantastic, and sending some hugs across the miles. RO

    2. Actually I realize that bear isn't on a sidewalk, so I guess he's OK. Looks like he might be blocking a railway track, though.

      It's a bug planet. Thank goodness for Raid.

  9. Yes, I know the INFIDEL.

    Even tried to have a quiet discussion, off blog, with him. Concerning how... He labels people and things. And to me, this negates, people taking many of his views, seriously.

    If you can not "talk", with out nasty labels, why should I listen to you?

    I find this happens, on both sides of the political debate, and it sickens me.

    Why can't people, have quiet discussions, without the easy-out of nasty labels????? Myself, I am sick of it. And made sad, by the impossibility, of having a quiet political discussion, with anybody...

  10. Hi RO :) I love twist endings in books and movies! Gives me a chill :) I guess the cliché "It's always the one you least suspect" works really well in fiction! :) The last time I looked at car theft stats it was the Honda Civic that was #1!

    Okay...I'm kind of grossed out about the people wearing their undies for a week lol...no joke, I change mine twice a day! I guess it's because I work out in the morning, then shower and change. Makes for a lot of laundry though, maybe I'm obsessive lol!

    1. I agree, those twisty ending in books and movies make things quite interesting for sure Rain. I hate that any type of car makes these lists, and it's very sad. The underwear info was quite something wasn't it?(lol) Sure hope your day is as amazing as you are! Hugs, RO

  11. Oh RO, what a fun, fun post. I'm a BIG Aurora fan, too. I just wish she could find a steady boyfriend who lasts more than four movies! Let's hope Nick is the guy. Believe it or not, I've guessed FOUR of the murderers correctly within the first hour of the show.

    Yay for KC forgiving the fines. I wish that was the case for all libraries. It would help people come back once they realized they didn't have to worry about their fines.

    I have a Friday the 13th post that mentions these people who fear it. It's a weird, yet viable situation. Be sure to watch my blog that day, please.

    This may be TMI, but I don't wear underwear. I need to feel free. I also know you need to wash your pants, jeans, etc. after you take them off. I never wear clothes a second day as a result. But I just can't stand the way undies bind to your body.

    It used to be that Hondas were the number one car on the list people were wanting to steal. Amazing how times have changed. Dean Winter does a good job of playing that thief and other mayhem he creates for that insurance company.

    So glad you like your planner. How many planners does one person need? Apparently a LOT if your name is RO! And I promise to NOT mention the sex toys or vaginas (grin).

I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed the boyfriend issue either(lol) Just when I got used to someone, he was gone, and I had to start all over again. Yay to you for figuring out 4 of the mysteries. That's pretty impressive! I think more and more libraries are leaning that way, mostly for the same reason you mention. More people will use the free resources available. Mine is going that route sometime in January. Can't wait to see that post on the 13th! OMG Elizabeth, that's too funny! I have one other friend who decided to go underwearless, and she used to joke about it quite a bit. Good for you for not being afraid to feel free. That's a fun piece of trivia for me too!(lol) If I wear a dress and take it off, it immediately goes into the dirty clothes for washing, so I'm probably doing laundry way too often.(lol) I hate that they even have lists like these for the theft of cars, and it's quite sad, but good for Dean Winter to remind us that there are people out there waiting to steal our things and to be vigilant. I can't explain it but Planners are not only fun, but they relax me so much, so I just can't get enough of them. Looking forward to decorating all of them for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas!!!!! The joy of my life is having so many fun, quirky and unusual friends, so bring on the vagina pics and underwearless news all day! (lol) Happy, happy Monday to you and lots of hugs too! RO

    Thanks for sharing this thought provoking list of Random Stuff. I love it!

    Wishing you all the best!

  30. Wow, pick up lines from Romance books! Sounds so crazy! and brave at the same time. I could see that as a Youtube clip. Hope you're still in touch with that individual.

  34. Those chocolate peanut butter bars look so good. Too bad my doc has me on a low carb diet, lol.

  36. RO--- The name of the catalogue, from which I got the comfy dresses, is Woman Within. (womanwithin.com)

    But it does cater to larger size women, so it might not be for you.

  37. Had to come and comment. Yes, Infidel is fantastic, Charlene got me with the Dead as...Sookie novels. And I’m like you, watching too many programs and trying to read too many books!

    XoXo

    P.S. thanks for stopping by!

  46. Good grief. I wonder if anyone replaces their underwear every six months. I knew you should replace lipstick because of bacteria, but I hadn't heard of underwear. You'd think the detergent and the heat in the dryer would kill the bacteria wouldn't you?
    Learn something new everyday at Ro's;)
