Election Day -- Don't Stay Home - 10/31/06 04:09 PM
I urge everyone who can to vote in the upcoming elections and to encourage neighbors, friends, and family to do the same. There's been a mild controversy in our state this year because of the recorded telephone messages. They are not against any Missouri law; they are usually short, but as has been pointed out, some cannot really be disconnected until the recording is over. Whoever figured this out was concerned about the possibility of an emergency and the phone is unavailable. The first one I got truly sounded like a person. I was answering questions, yes, no, yes, etc. Then, the caller (1 comments)
Halloween beyond the candy - 10/31/06 03:51 PM
Candy is cool. I don't have any problem with the candy. I buy some to send to my grandkids. I buy some for me. I buy some in case some little kids come by, although we live in the country and they don't find us. The wrappings are nice to assure parents about the germs that could come from friendly hands passing candy out. They are kind of a nuisance for me because they are usually bright colored and really show up in the waste basket to indicate how much I've eaten during the day. I'm appalled by the figures of BILLIONS (0 comments)
Showing Overload - 10/22/06 07:51 AM
Once upon a time, an agent tried to be very efficient when showing homes to a couple who didn’t have much time to look. They came asking about one particular home, but she added a few others. “If this one doesn’t work, we have some other options.” The couple looked; didn’t like anything, grew crabbier and crabbier. The agent wished they would go shop in another town so they could live next to other people. The second visit turned out about the same. The man was crabby to everybody and terrible to kids. The agent wanted to slap him. The third visit was for information only. (0 comments)
Technology Tools -- Plain & Simple - 10/15/06 11:48 PM
When considering portable technology tools, don’t forget the ever serviceable Wood Processor. I LOVE my laptop, desktop, pda, recorder, scanner, printer, microphones, headsets, calculators, cameras card readers, usb hubs, external drive -- any and all electonic toys. I keep an electronic typewriter handy for quick typing jobs and crave a label maker. But, sometimes when my hands have garden dirt on them, or horse dust, or bread/cookie dough, or the moment is just too short to boot something up, the notebook and pencil for documentation is essential. I just need that time, phone number, address, reminder, quick note about who said what (0 comments)
What's for Dinner? or Breakfast? RE people have to eat too. - 10/03/06 09:17 AM
Cowboy French Toast 1 1/2 cups of boxed pancake mix (the kind that has everything) 1 egg 2 tablespoons of cooking oil 1 cup of fluid (milk, water, apple juice) or enough to make the mixture soupy. sliced bread (stale works great) Mix the first three ingredients into a batter. Dip the slices of bread into the batter and 'fry' them on a greasy griddle. Serve with topping of your choice syrup: Mix 1 cup of water with 2 cups of brown sugar. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let it roll for about 2 min. applesauce, pie filling, jelly or jam. I put this together for my cowboys many (2 comments)
