It Is Dandelion Season

As you can tell from looking around it is dandelion season, which starts when the grass starts getting green.  Personally I do not like dandelions on my lawn, so I use a weed and feed to get rid of them. You have to be careful on the type of spray or granules you use, but a quick trip to the hardware or lawn store and they can help you pick out a safe and effective product. If dandelions don’t bother you, there are benefits to them.

Too Many Fouls Being Called in the NBA Playoffs

I love watching basketball, especially this time of year when the playoffs are going on, even though my favorite team, the Boston Celtics was eliminated early by the New York Knicks. The problem I’m having this year is it seems the refs are taking over the game too much. I understand there have been times when they have to get the game under control and fouls, even technical fouls, are necessary but, I have seen the refs call fouls that aren’t even there.

Tanning Lotions…Which Do You Prefer?

I'm not a HUGE tanner but I DO like to get a base tan before the Summer comes and reeks havoc on my skin.The picture you see is of Chad and myself in Myrtle Beach on vacation last year. Because we got our base tans we were able to enjoy the hot sun and not burn. We enjoyed that vacation with Rick and Rita Turcotte immensely! Can't wait to go back there again!

Do YOU get a base tan before the hot sun hits?

Kind of makes me want to trade in my gas grill for the smell of charcoal.

And the Sign Says, Usually Something Funny

I

If you have ever seen the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, you’ve seen the segment where he shows; newspaper advertising that is, let’s say, unusual. Here are some I found that are of that ilk: On a Plumbers truck: ‘We repair what your husband tried to fix'. Another plumbing company advertises: ‘Don’t sleep with a drip. Call your plumber'.

Renee’s Take on ‘How Not to Care so Much’

I received a wonderful complement this morning, I was told by someone that she thinks it is cool how I do not really care that much what people think or say about me. As I have sat here thinking about that, what a really nice thing to say. I have worked to develop that and glad others can see it!

Sneezing is Good For You

If you ever walk out into the sun on a nice bright day a sneeze, that is called ‘photic’, you are a "light sneezer" and that you can blame on your parents because it is an inherited trait with one in three people doing so.

What Do You Know About GMOs?

GMO. It stands for genetically modified organisms. These are used to help genetically modify foods. DNA is added to the plants original DNA to add certain attributes. For example, it can make plants resistant to certain diseases or a longer shelf life. A hearing at the Maine state house had over 100 people come out to speak out for and against the bill to make it mandatory food retailers to label products containing genetically modified seeds or ingredients.

Oblivion Review

‘Oblivion’ Review

'Oblivion' is best described as opportunity, squandered. Its landscape – conceptual and physical – feels remarkably unique and bursting with possibilities, but the exploration of both lacks originality, and energy. Joe Kosinski’s follow-up to 'TRON: Legacy' is, like its predecessor, a gorgeously mounted, inventive world-building endeavor, but it’s also equally bloodless -- ponderous without being thoughtful, ambitious without being inspired, much less inspiring. The chronicle of a battle for the fate of humankind that possesses little humanity of its own, 'Oblivion' is an overstuffed compendium of familiar genre tropes rendered with ornamental beauty but not much emotional depth.
