That Mars & Venus Thing AGAIN!

You might not have known this, but a lot of non-living objects are actually either male or female.

Here are some examples:

They are male, because they hold everything in, but you can see right through them.


These are female, because once turned off, it takes a while to warm them up again.

They are an effective reproductive device if the right buttons are pushed, but can also wreak havoc if you push the wrong buttons.


Tires are male, because they go bald easily and are often over inflated.


Also a male object, because to get them to go anywhere, you have to light a fire under their arse.

Dec. 2, 2006 - Flu Bug and me and Excellent Advice a Bit Too Late, But I'm Gonna Catch Up as Soon as I Can Get Out of Bed!

I've got the flu. (sigh, cough, cough, cough) I’m coughing, my head is filled with mucus and my tummy is roiling. Yep! That’s the flu alright. I got my Flu Shot faithfully the last week in October as I have done every year for ever. But this year I got the flu. A dear friend sent me the following advice but it came too late for me. So, I am passing it on to my Blog Buddies and hope you follow it to the letter. I know if I had I wouldn’t be this unhappy mass of germs that I am right now.
With my sincere best wishes for your continuing good health, Brenda Bee

How To Avoid The FLU

Eat right! Make sure you get your daily dose of fruits and veggies. Take your vitamins and bump up your vitamin C.

Get plenty of exercise because exercise helps build your immune system. Walk for at least an hour a day, go for a swim, take the stairs instead of the elevator, etc.

Looking for Santa's Helpers to Adopt a Needy Greensboro Child for Christmas

Christmas is almost here and Greensboro’s neediest children are hoping to be ‘adopted” by a generous Santa’s Helper. Are you one of these people?

I am doing one of my favorite things again this year: working as a Volunteer at the Salvation Army on their Christmas Angel Tree Program. We took applications of families needing help making their children’s holiday more bright in late October and early November. We are now in the process of finding Santa’s Helpers who wish to adopt a child or a family.

This is how the program works for you who are new to it. First we take applications of families who MUST prove their, how shall I say this, poverty. On this application we take all data concerning the family like address, phone, monthly income from all sources and monthly required out go. Then comes the good part; we list the children in the family along with their ages, sizes and what they would like best to receive for Christmas. We caution the parents who of course are applying to be reasonable in their request for toys and most are. We ask them to limit their request to under $50 per child. Most requests are far below that figure however.
