Rooting around in a batch of old matches, I found one celebrating the Silver Jubilee of King George V (Elizabeth’s grandfather) in 1935.

I got this toothpaste squeezer on a whim because I like gadgets. It costs $9.99 – Only now doing the math on that. Rounding up because Teresa does most of the shopping and does not even look at grocery prices as far as I know, say 30 cents an ounce. The catch is, even with […]

I recently acquired some Marilyn Monroe trading cards. They’re nice and all, she was a beautiful lady. Still… Can she build a chicken coop? Can she expand your bedroom? The Monroe Brothers certainly had their merits, ask anyone in Hootersville.
GoodReads.com is a handy way to keep track of books you read, so hopefully you won’t get to page 47 and realize that you already read that book. Life is too short! It has a convenient link to paste into a blog like so… Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King My rating: 4 of 5 stars […]
