Apparently she was 66 when her husband became president (68) and she wasn't physically well enough to make the long and arduous trip from Ohio to DC, so she promised to come later. Unfortunately, her husband died a month after taking the oath to office and died leaving her the fir...

Usually they are much more "washed out" and look more like a diamond with a super-light blue tint to it. I like the more brilliant ones. I have a few of them, various degrees of blue to each. One is so washed out, it really looks like a diamond until you put it nex...

Wed, 30 Mar 2016 07:32:38 EST QOTD 03.29.16 Tuesday! <img src=""> Good morning! <BR> <BR> Yesterday was personal, I think. Ham seemed to emerge as the one we basically agreed over. That prompted today's picture. My mom used to grind up leftover meat for sandwiches that were pretty good. I'm going to take some Easter eggs and chop them for egg salad sandwiches. I don't usually eat egg salad, or bread, but I'm going to make some this year. <BR> <BR> Today: Wha...

Apparently the Irish ate bacon and cabbage until they moved to NYC in the late 1700s or early 1800s when they came to the US. Then the Jewish people put them onto Corned beef. Maybe they couldn't get bacon. Don't know and didn't know... Thu, 17 Mar 2016 11:22:48 EST QOTD 03.16.16 Wednesday! <img src=""> Good morning! <BR> <BR> Yesterday: St. Patrick used shamrocks to illustrate the trinity. Each shamrock "clover" has three heart-shaped "leaves" and this is what he used to illustrate the trinity. Father, Son, and Holy Ghost all separate, but part of the same. Some clergy of today use an egg to illustrate the same thing. Shell, yolk, white. All can be separated, but all are part of the same. Thre...

Thought this green fountain at the White House was pretty. <BR> <BR> If you guessed Hot Springs, Arkansas for yesterday's answer, you got it right. When you find it on Google Earth, it is not longer the tiny village you think it is for having the smallest parade for anything. I expected to find a town, not much bigger than an old west ghost town, about a block long. I think the suggestion ...

Sat, 5 Mar 2016 08:02:55 EST QOTD 03.04.16 Friday! <img src=""> Good morning! <BR> <BR> Your comment on the small wicker basket is a great idea, however, this man would fill it up in a second and keep filling it until it was overflowing and not care. He's not really that bad, but he does like to leave his stuff where he's done with it instead of putting it away. <BR> <BR> Yesterday: St. Patrick chased the snakes out of Ireland. There are no snakes in Irelan...

Was so tired when I got home, but forced myself to not just throw it down on the living room floor and forget it. Actually put on a double load of darks and unpacked and stored everything properly. Hubby helped, but it still felt like a massive chore since all we wanted to do was go to bed. That 2.5 hour ride sure does make us sleepy. <B...

Living in Florida does not have any possibility of having a snowy day and to be hones, if it did snow here, I'd immediately start packing and selling everything I could, including my house, because this place would be under water soon.

Wonder what we're doing at Dunkin' Donuts/Baskin Robin Ice Cream on the 19th? <BR> <BR> Have a great one. Fri, 10 Jul 2015 13:05:50 EST QOTD 07.09.15 Thursday! <img src=""> Hello! <BR> <BR> It's Thursday, my first day off after 6 days and I'm behind on everything. Went grocery shopping this AM because I needed so much stuff. <BR> <BR> Do you have any cats in your neighborhood that have been abandoned by their owners? <BR> <BR> Have a good one. Thu, 9 Jul 2015 14:40:22 EST QOTD 07.08.15 Wednesday! <img src=""> Good morning! <BR> <BR> I am surprised at the answers from yesterday, especially the ones that say the blender is too much work to clean up. Did you know that you can put the blender "jar" in the sink and fill it with water to rinse it out - you don't have to take the blade out, and then turn it upside down on the bottom rack of your dishwasher, put the lid on the top rack and it will wash just fine... Wed, 8 Jul 2015 05:39:16 EST QOTD 07.07.15 Tuesday! <img src=""> Good morning! <BR> <BR> Due to working at Dunkin' Donuts, I've been thinking of finding a faster breakfast than the very healthy one I've been stuck on lately, Almond Flour/Flax pancakes, because it takes a few minutes to make them and I'm hoping to find something as healthy but faster to prepare. I think I found a smoothie that is delicious and healthy. <BR> <BR> Today's question: Do you like smoo...

Mon, 6 Jul 2015 01:40:54 EST QOTD 07.05.15 Sunday! <img src=""> Good morning and I hope it wasn't too much war in your neighborhoods last night. FL apparently has a law that says fireworks can only be set off on July 4th. However, we've been hearing the celebration since June 30th. One guy came into the store yesterday with his grandchildren. Said they celebrated July 3rd the night before. I thought, I bet the neighbors appreciated that. He asked me if I ce... Sun, 5 Jul 2015 05:33:06 EST QOTD 07.04.15 Saturday! <img src=""> Good morning! <BR> <BR> Deb, you missed the date by over a year. It wasn't signed until August 8, 1776. Have no idea why it took them so long to sign the thing they fought and died for, but maybe it was because it took them that long to all get together again. Or maybe they were already learning how to point fingers at everyone else like today's do nothing congress. I believe if it were left up t...

However, he declared the colonists in rebellion on August 23, 1775. <BR> <BR> King George III was, acco... Fri, 3 Jul 2015 05:55:57 EST QOTD 07/02/15 Thursday! <img src=""> Good morning! <BR> <BR> 1.

Good morning! <BR> <BR> Do you have any problems drinking enough water (or liquid) everyday? <BR> <BR> Note: current studies show 10 cups of water a day, SP still uses the 8 cups a day as the standard, but if you read a lot of their articles, they are hinting at the new studies and giving soft encouragement to drink more water. <BR> <BR> Have a great one.

Good morning! <BR> <BR> Bunker Hill was the first Major battle of the Revolutionary War. <BR> <BR> When you drive to a particular place, do you always take the same route or do you mix it up each time or even occasionally.

It followed the opening battles of the war at Lexington and Concord. <BR> <BR> Yesterday was supposed to be my first day of three learning cashier.

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 02:28:13 EST QOTD 06.20.15 Saturday! <img src=""> Good morning! <BR> <BR> Yesterday's Answer: The Battle of Antietam was America's bloodiest battle with a total of 3,620 dead, 17,365 wounded and 2,597 missing or captured. That was for both sides - all of which were Americans. It's easy to forget that and think of the side you considered the home team as the Americans and the others were the enemy. Can you imagine, even today, what the newspapers... Sat, 20 Jun 2015 11:45:38 EST QOTD 06.19.15 Friday! I think I am busier than a one-armed paper hanger. I got this part time job at Duncan Donuts and now I have to do their "university" online so I am not put on the list as eligible to get cut. I have 30 days to complete the course. I am sure I can do it, but it just added to my pile of stuff to do. Oh baby, why was there nothing mentioned about this before? <BR> <BR> Which battle hosted America's bloodiest day? (Hint: Civil War) <BR> <BR> Have fun. Fri, 19 Jun 2015 14:50:08 EST QOTD 06.18.15 Thursday! <img src=""> Good morning! <BR> <BR> This is the first of 3 days off for me.

Wed, 3 Jun 2015 10:52:40 EST QOTD 06.02.15 Tuesday! <img src=""> This picture reminds me of a weekend getaway where we traveled up into the mountains, which we often did. One time we rounded a mountain-road curve and ran right into a thick fog bank. Fortunately the foot went on the break in time and we entered the fog bank at a crawl. It was a good thing because there was a semi in that fog bank crawling. You could barely see your hand in front of your face and...
