Random Ramblings #2

Signs of Spring - 1) Hello mister ant! I haven't seen you, or your kind in months! Sorry but ~SQUOOSH~ I guess it's time to get some ant buttons. 2) I've had a case of the blues like I've recently been getting during the long, hard, Rochester winters. But my mood for the last few days has been a bit better. I even did a few very small positive things for myself. I haven't done that in a long time. It's been sunny, and warmer. Coincidence? I doubt it. 3) I heard a noise. I thought that maybe it was a snow plow. Then I remembered that we don't have snow now. The last few days have been above freezing. I looked out the window and the noise was coming form a lawn mower. I stood at the window glaring at it for several minutes in disbelief as if it was an alien from another planet. It was 47F (8.3C) degrees. Winter may still flair up in Rochester, but spring is around the corner...FINALLY!

No Perfect Blog Server - WordPress blogs disappeared yesterday. I'm sure they will reappear soon. Googles been playing tricks since they updated things. I've heard numerous complaints about MySpaces. None are perfect. I'm sticking with Google Blogger. I'm use to it, and the grass is not greener on the other side.

Neighbors Corned Beef - My neighbor dropped off some corned beef the other day for St. Patrick's day which was very nice of her, and appreciated. Yum! She knows that I'm virtually out of work. We help each other. Before I had car problems I use to driver her to the store occasionally. When my car is back on the road, I'll offer my services more often because I know first hand that it's almost impossible to get around Rochester without a car. (I will blog on Rochester's horrible bus system soon.)

The Luck of The Irish! - Look who won a FREE Olivia sweepstakes cruise for two. St. John Island anyone? Hey, don't cut that cake!

Food Storage Chart - This chart might come in handy.

Wonderful Friday 13th - Surprisingly things went very well for me that day. For example a supervisor at my phone company gave me a $50 credit to my account. (long story) That never happened before. I also had two other little nice surprises.
