  1. I also have a wealth of (mostly) totally useless knowledge floating in my head. I use it just often  enough to make myself look stupid.
    I wonder if Alzheimer’s is related to all of the technology used to make our lives better – teflon, hydrogenated oils, genetically modified foods, etc.
    Could you go to my space and then go to my new space (I have the new address there) and see if you can leave a comment?
    Happy Labor Day

  4. Hello Gail,
     
    Good shopper your boy is. Getting that much stuff for the amount of money is amazing especially for someone concerned with fitting in.
     
    Another trivial fact is that two cups of coffee per day will help prevent alzheimers. Chocolate is always good for everything – just don’t eat too much or you might look like the Goodyear Blimp;)
     
    The only affects from the move were two cat scratches and two bruises plus a little tired and sore. Otherwise everything is fine. Finished her move out with 30 minutes to spare.
     
    Peace & Blessings.

  5. ooooooohhhhhhhhhI can finally add a comment again after three whole days!!!!! Tried morning, didn’t work, was gonna give up, but thot of reading your blog, and guess what I can comment again!!!! yahooooooo!!!
    I like totally random facts too!! I’m always buying fact books for Nel to read. 🙂  Do you know that most people who live in together before marriage break up within 2 months?? the rest will most likely break up before 2 years. So now they are thinking not to call it co-habitation, but intense dating!! haha…..I just read it recently. Do you know that Pluto is no considered a planet? but a "dwarf planet" so essentially now there are 8 planets, and not nine. ok, enough.
    Have a blessed weekend Aunt Gail!
    with love and hugs!
