HA HA Funny

This last week I've been getting hit with spam about "Quitting Smoking"! I think that is so funny in some weird way. It right up there with getting Viagra spam.

Isn't that Duck cute? If it doesn't stop raining here in Texas I might end up with web feet.

Enjoy your weekend!

Pipes

I came home from the pool the other night and decided to shower off. Turn the knob for the hot water, then turn on the cold water, and then turn the knob for the water to go up to the shower. Nothing! (*(&%!*$#@) Yes I started speak another language. The two weeks before the plumber said everything was fixed but he was here to fix a drip. I've lived here for 2 and a half years, this shower has always been a pain. When it has what ever new malfunction it always takes weeks to fix with multiple trips. I spend my time waiting for phone calls and making phone calls. It's getting old!

The bright side is that I'm still not smoking! I feel so much better and I've lost 5 pounds.

Sore Butt Tour

I love my mountain bike but I don't get to ride it as much as I'd like. DirtWorld.com's article about biking across Cuba looks like a cool ride. Then this morning I read about Trek Travel. Trek is setting up a cross country trip starting September 17. The trip takes off from Santa Barbara, California and ends in Charleston, South Carolina. This long trip is going to take 34 days and will cost you $10,000 big US dollars. I do think it should be nicknamed "The Sore Butt Tour". After day one my cutie bootie would hurt. Still I'd love to do it. 34 days of Mother Nature and your own thoughts. Sounds like heaven to me.

100 Calories

It's Friday!

I always like reading ways to burn calories. Run, jog, and walking are the boring ones. So here are some that sound like fun for this weekend.

Cruise the aisles at the supermarket for 40 minutes will burn 100 calories. I like this one because it's easy and rather silly.

Painting a room for 30 minutes will get you 100 calories. Walker I'm sure wiring a whole house burns a great deal of calories. Just don't eat chicken wings for lunch.

30 minutes of Ballroom dancing burns 100 calories. Make a night of it and be a calorie burning machine.

20 minutes of weeding the garden gets you burning 100 calories. See I told you pulling the weeds was good for you.

This one I do not understand but 25 minutes of horseback riding burns 100 calories.

Crank up the tunes and dance around the room for 20 minutes will burn 100 calories. Families should do dance night. Grab the grandparents too. Music is a great door opener to family history. I like my parents stories of the big dance hall dances. The one I always remember is that my father dropped my mother on the floor because he waved at some friends. LOL

Have fun this weekend and find fun new ways to burn some calories.

The Simmering 401(K)

Do you have a healthy 401k?
Do you know what your money is invested in?

Those are easy questions and if you have a 401k you should be able to answer them. Now for the hard question.

Will Global Warming have a huge impact on your stock investments?


Now there's a question folks that we all need to be thinking about. How is business going to change in a warming world? There are going to be economic changes. It is a fact that we must face so we can plan for the future.

It is predicted that in the year 2050 that electricity demands will be triple of what we have now. Think about that for a moment. Don't be a ass-hole and say "I won't be here what do I care." The Big Blue Marble she's a changing. She can roll for the better or she can roll to self destruction. I'm hoping for the better for Trinity and the rest of the little kids in the world.

This subject really made me think, so I felt I should share it with you.

Here to Save The Day...

What really saves our day. Is it someone that pays all our bills with their money not ours. Maybe it someone that cleans our house and cooks us fabulous meals. Well thats just down right materialistic now isn't it.

I'm sitting here waiting for a plumber to give me a call. He is not going to save my day. He should have done that last week when he was here. Today he is wasting my time. Well that is not fair. Maybe he is working hard waiting for someone to save his day.

There is a part of me that thinks waiting for someone to save your day is weak but I'm guilty of it. My biggest weakness is not saving myself. But I did quit smoking. That was a step in the right direction.

Today I have to take Sasha to the Vet. I feel like I'm taking the prisoner back to the prison. It's silly but this is going to be very hard on me.

Someone Find me a Press-On Tattoo

I need a Tattoo! Yes and a big nasty ass one too! I took Trinity to the pool and all I saw were Women with big tattoo's. Tattoo's that started on their backs that then snaked down their arms. Oh we will not get into legs.

So here I am Super Chick Mom with not one damn Tattoo. I must be a Puss. Well if I'm a puss so are the men that I saw at the pool. When I was young I thought my uncles anchor on his forearm was very scary. The Hula girl on the other arm was just stupid. At the pool I saw some shit I couldn't figure out and they were on women. I think I'm just going to stick with I'm a puss.

So if you find some cool Press-On Tattoo's please send them to me so I can stay in the club of Women. If I get kicked out I'll have to hang with the men also known as the club of Pussies.
