    I heard this on the radio today and I just figured it out... Holy cow! After December 12, 2012 (12/12/12), there won't be any "repetitive" calendar dates for quite a long while!
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!

    Years ago I was asked to volunteer to do face painting for a Christmas party.

    I can't face paint - my art talent is limited to watching the guy with the 'fro on PBS.

    I sat down, daunted, struggling thru the first handful of kids.

    Who knew kids didn't care about a Christmas tree or reindeer, they wanted the cartoon character of the day drawn on their faces!

    By the time I got good at Christmas trees, wreaths and reindeer, the party was over.

    -----------------------

    In the end it wasn't about toys, trees or the fad of the day.

    It was the look of a kid's face when you put up the mirror so they could see what you did for them.

    -----------------------

    I picked up some face paints for a dollar at the store the other day.

    You never know when you may need them?

    Just placed part of my annual CHristmas order with a website.

    THey sell various and sundry coffees from around the world, and are the only ones I can find who sell one coffee I really like for less than 3 arms and 2 legs.

    I also peruse their site and try different coffees here and there. One caught my eye, for the sole reason of the product name.

    It was xxxxxx "excellent Aroma Coffee".


    Do they sell multiple grades?

    Do they sell a lousy aroma coffee and a not too bad aroma coffee?

    Absolutely!!! I have smelled freshly brewed that smells like coffee that has burned on the bottom of the pot that was almost empty, after someone neglected to turn the machine off. YUK!

    Have you tried the Kahlua flavored coffee? Delish - and the aroma fills the whole house.

    Do women wear aprons anymore - other than the Amish - and do the stores even sell them?

    I do now and again - depending on what I make.

    I was baking this a.m. and actually wished I had one. I did remember that I had one somewhere, and found one of those "half" aprons in a kitchen drawer - the kind that's just from the waist down - but I want a full one and not just a kitchen towel thrown over my shoulder like I normally do. I remember when I was a kid, that my mother wore one every day - that was just part of her normal attire around the house. Along with the housedress, slip, girdle, stockings, and what I used to call "orthopedic" shoes. She never wore a pair of slacks until she was in her 70's and I convinced her that she would be much warmer wearing them in the cold months.

    Times sure have changed!

    My mom remembers that my great-grandmother always wore a half apron. All day, every day. When I look at pictures of her, she does have an apron on in most of them

    My mom and my sister both wear a bib apron when they cook. I have one from Williams-Sonoma with red and white stripes. I got it for a skit for an office Christmas party.

    I was watching Anne Burrell's show on the Food Network one day and she kept wiping her hands on her shirt! Yuck! Put an apron on, Anne!

    And if it's the blood of a virgin?

    If I remember correctly, Stephen King wrote a story about a laundry machine that killed people because a virgin cut herself and bled on it. She put a hex on the darned thing.

    When I work with people on any mechanical job, I ask for credentials.

    LOL, there's an old joke about making breakfast, especially frying bacon, in the nude.

    I always laugh and picture someone buck naked, wearing an apron with a fork in hand, diligently frying pork products.

    There was a lot more involved in the "laundry machine" story than someone bleeding on it, including belladonna and other steps, before the machine turned lethal.
