Ladies and Gents ~

I admit to a VERY limited knowledge of modern day music... so could anyone please tell me if there are any current protest songs about the dump???
I'm thinking songs like we used to have ~ along the lines of Peter, Paul & Mary; Crosby, Stills & Nash; Marvin Gaye, etc.
Any & all info along these lines/links would be very much appreciated!!
Thanks in advance ~

You simply can NOT compare Melania dump to Jackie Kennedy.

Jackie wasn't a two-bit whore before she became first lady ~

And Jackie actually finished college, instead of dropping out.

Nope ~ no comparison!

75th D-Day anniversary

My sweet hubby {military brat and officer} and I {military brat and wife} give thought every year on 6/6 to all the soldiers who braved & persevered & gave their lives that day ~ we will never be able to do enough to repay them for what they did. They represent the BEST of America ~ and their work can never be diminished.

But hubby and I have another reason to gently celebrate the day ~ tomorrow will be the 40th anniversary of the day we first met. In comparison, it will never match the tough glory of the original D-Day, but to us, it has it's own significance.

Our marriage, like so many others, has had it's ups and downs ~ but here we are, 40 years later, still together...

To the men of 75 years ago ~ we will always remember ~

To Jimbo ~ No, your radio isn't too loud, and yes, I would like some orange juice.

Good news ~ Tomorrow will mark the beginning of Spring (the Vernal Equinox) at 3:58 PM MST!

Good news ~ Today was the first day I got to dig my fingers in some planting soil; I repotted my Bleeding Heart from an old cracked pot to a new one.


Bad news ~ like just about everyone I've talked to in this area, my allergies began to bug me on or about 16 March. :-(

Bad news ~ since working with the potting soil this afternoon, my allergies have REALLY flared. I've been a snot-nosed mess ever since!!


Spring, thou art a double edged sword! But I welcome you anyway!

Happy Daylight Savings Time!!

Now when is the USA going to come to it's senses and get rid of this archaic, anachronistic bullshit habit?!?! We haven't been the agrarian society that needed this for at least almost 70 years!!

For our January DIVAs project, DE presented us with these fun Wrap Books ~ they came completely plain. We added Texture paste through a stencil on the covers, and then I painted mine with the daubings of a sea sponge. The seahorse came plain; I hand painted it. There is a bit of tinted cheesecloth, a button coloured with TH's Mushroom Alcohol Ink, and a tag from Graphic 45's "Sun Kissed" line.
As always, click to biggify!

The mini composition books are held in place by simple hair bands. The books are 3.5W by 4.5H.

The composition books,; inside front & back covers.

The pocket on the inside back page holds a message for my sweet hubby

The first of the composition books... All the covers and backs are decorated.

This was rather difficult to photograph, because it wanted to keep closing! But thanks for looking ~ I will be using this as a gratitude journal as soon as I fill up the one I'm using now.
