This is a scary article that makes me wonder at the state of our world.  It seems that our natural resources in the ocean, lakes, and streams are dying by the thousands.  How are we going to fix this problem?  Is there a fix?  I’d love to know your thoughts on this issue. Please share.

 

Weekly Photo Challenge:Merge

Photo taken by J. Ahern at the Brookfield Zoo exhibit Zoo Bugs.

       This is an example of how bugs merge and camouflage themselves to avoid becoming dinner for another bug or animal.  Brookfield Zoo’s interpretation of this is a bit extreme, however, the name of the exhibit is “Extreme Bugs”.   Some people believe that the “Lady Bug” is a lucky and magical bug.  It is said that if a Lady Bug lands on you, then good luck will follow.  I wonder if this extreme Lady Bug is even luckier than the average garden variety.

       There is a story from the Middle Ages where the crops were being eaten by insects, and people were starving.  They prayed to The Virgin Mary for relief.  The village was disappointed in their prayers when they discovered yet another insect in their fields.  Their disappointment was short-lived, however, when they realized that these bugs were killing the insects that had been dining on their food supply.  They called these wonder bugs, Lady Bugs. 

       Lady Bugs love to eat aphids. So if you have aphids on your roses or tomatoes, head on over to the garden center and purchase a carton of Lady Bugs.  They are sure  to solve your problem. 

     Check out the Weekly Photo Challenge: Merge at the Daily Post.  You still have time to submit a photo.

Elvis Lives On

Today, August 16, is the 35th Anniversary of the death of Elvis Presley. He died in 1977 of a heart arrhythmia at his Graceland home in Memphis, Tennessee. As one of the most popular and beloved entertainers of his time, his death came as a shock to his many devoted fans. In honor of Elvis, included here are some interesting facts about the “The King”.

Elvis Aron Presley was born on January 8, 1935 in Tupelo, Mississippi, USA.  In 1954, Elvis began his singing career at the legendary Sun Records. His recording contract was sold a year later to RCA records.  Elvis had an illustrious career as a singer and an actor.  He has been inducted into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, The Country Music Hall of Fame and the Gospel Music Hall of Fame.

“Elvis” Trivia

  •  Owned a pet chimpanzee called “Scatter”.
  •  Had 18 Billboard #1 songs, the first being “Heartbreak Hotel” in March of 1956. His 18th and final #1, “Suspicious Minds”, was released in September 1969.
  • The book he was reading at the time of his death was “The Scientific Search for the Face of Jesus” by Frank O. Adams, (Psychical Aid Foundation, USA, 1972).
  • From the time they met up until his death, Elvis always sent a roomful of flowers to Anne Margaret whenever she opened up a show in Las Vegas.
  • After seeing him in concert, Liberace suggested adding flashy costumes into his act. Elvis took the advice, and became famous for his gold lame jackets and jeweled white jumpsuits. He later reserved a seat for Liberace at a majority of his concerts, as his way of saying thanks.
  • Died with about $5 million in his bank account.
  • Elvis did not like confrontation. He wanted to fire his manager, Tom Parker, many times. He would tell his friends “Tell Parker, he’s fired.” His friends would go tell him, then Parker would say “Tell Elvis to tell me personally”. Elvis never did.
  • Once an opera singer attended one of his 1950s concerts and met him backstage. The singer told Elvis that he sang like a hillbilly and needed singing lessons. Elvis replied, “Thanks for the advice, but how many of the thousands of people out there tonight came to hear you sing?”.
  • In 1977 alone his personal physician, Dr. ‘George Constantine Nichopoulos’ (usually referred to as “Dr. Nick”), had prescribed at-least 10,000 hits of amphetamines, barbiturates, narcotics, tranquilizers, sleeping pills, laxatives, and hormones for Presley. His medical license was eventually revoked for prescribing such huge amounts of drugs.
  • His home Graceland in Memphis is the second most popular private tourist attraction in the United States after the White House, and is estimated to bring in $150 million to the city itself each year.

“Elvis” Quotes

“Some people tap their feet, some people snap their fingers, and some people sway back and forth. I just sorta do ‘em all together, I guess.” -Elvis in 1956, talking about his way of moving on stage.

“The first time that I appeared on stage, it scared me to death. I really didn’t know what all the yelling was about. I didn’t realize that my body was moving. It’s a natural thing to me. So to the manager backstage I said, ‘What’d I do? What’d I do?’ And he said “Whatever it is, go back and do it again.” -From a 1972 taped interview used in MGM’s documentary “Elvis on Tour”

“…the image is one thing and the human being is another…it’s very hard to live up to an image.” -From the press conference prior to his record-breaking Madison Square Garden shows in New York City, 1972

 

May Elvis forever rest in peace. His legacy will live on as long as we hold him in our hearts and memories.

The Sexy Sandal Scandal

       I never wear open-toed sandals. I think my toes are ugly and my feet are too big. So when I happened upon this pair of brown, leather sandals with bronzed buttons up the center in my bedroom, I ignored them.  I kicked them into my closet, thinking they were left there by my sister who had just been visiting from out-of-town.  She would wear that kind of sandal, because she had beautiful toes.  (She should, she gets them professionally done twice a month! ).  I figured I would give them back to her when she made a return visit later in the month.

       A few  weeks later, when I was getting dressed for a night out with my husband for dinner and a concert, I came across those sandals again.  I actually picked them up and looked at them.  They were larger than my sister’s feet. She wears a size 8, and I wear a size 11.  Bigger sister, bigger feet, go figure.  They  were appealing foot wear. Whomever the owner was that had left them in my bedroom. 

       I sat down on the bed, and just for the heck of it, I slid them on my feet.  Wah-La, they fit!  They fit so perfectly that it was like they were made for my feet.  Did I have a secret Fairy- Shoe Mother who dropped the perfect sandal into my bedroom?  This was so weird.  I looked at them on my feet in the mirror.  It was like magic, because my toes looked beautiful in these shoes.  They looked sexy and young. I made up my mind. I was wearing them.

       My husband took me to dinner at our favorite Chinese restaurant.  When we walked into the joint, I spied other women looking me up and down in that judgemental way that us women look at other women.  In the past, I would have checked my clothes to make sure that I didn’t have a button glaringly open or a stain on my blouse. However, that night, I didn’t believe they were looking at anything but my shoes.  I know they were admiring my feet and my magic sandals, just wishing that they, too, had a pair.

       After the Mongolian beef arrived, my husband commented on how beautiful I looked.  I was waiting for him, with bated breath, to comment on my shoes.  He didn’t disappoint me.  I knew there was a good reason why I had married him. 

       “Did you buy a new pair of sandals for tonight?” he asked.  “They are really sexy.”

       “No, “ I said and smiled at him. “I found them in our bedroom.”

       He looked confused.  “Excuse me? You found them in our bedroom?”

I explained the story of how I found the sandals. And ended with the statement, “Finders Keepers, Losers Weepers.”

       “Did you ask our daughter if they were hers?” he wanted to know.

       I had not thought about them possibly being my daughter’s.  She was the only other person I knew who wore size 11 shoes.  I scoured my mind and tried to remember her wearing the sandals. I could not recall.  However, the seed my husband placed in my head was starting to grow. 

       With dinner over and the check paid, my husband and I headed  to the concert.  Once more, people were looking at my delicious sandals and smiling.  I felt like Cinderella at the ball, and I vowed that I would never give up these sandals.  They were made for my feet.

       The following morning, my daughter and grandson came over for a visit.  As I was telling her all about dinner and the concert, I went to my closet and grabbed the sandals.  My face fell as hers lit up.

       “Oh, mom, you found my sandals!  I was looking for those everywhere.”

       She tried to take them from me, but I whipped them quickly behind my back.

       “No! You cannot have them.  They are magic and they make my feet look sexy.  Even Dad said so.”

       My daughter blew out a breath and exclaimed, “But they are mine!”

      My eyes began welling up with tears. This happens to women when they are old and they cannot have their way.  Consequently, my daughter, being the fine young lady that I raised her to be, proceeded to tell me that I could go and buy my own pair of “sexy” sandals at Target.  Defeated, I handed over the sandals and went to the bathroom to wash my face. 

       While I was in the bathroom, I heard her talking on her cell phone.  All I could hear was, “They’re mine.” and “Oh, all right, dad.”.   I collected myself and went out into the kitchen. My daughter, scowl on her face, told me to try on the sandals for her.  I put them on and another tear at the loss of these dear shoes slid down my face. 

         “Mom.” My daughter said quietly, “Those sandals look really sexy on your feet.”

         I looked up at her unbelievably.  “Really?”

         She smiled. “Really. You can have them.”  She hugged me.

         I kissed her.

        “They look too old-fashioned for me, anyway.” She kissed me back.

Stats Gone Wild

I am in shock! When I looked at my stats  this afternoon, it states that I have had 432 views for today.  This is amazing.  I have NEVER had that many views. The most views I have ever had were 167.  Upon further examination, I discovered that 372 views were on my HomePage/ Archives.

Hmmmm, I am wondering, who is looking at my pages?  I have heard that people who have been Freshly Pressed will suddenly have a massive amount of views.  So with hope in my heart, I went and snooped at the Freshly Pressed page to see if that was the reason for so many views.  NOPE!

So what is it? Is WordPress having stat issues?  I signed out of my account, turned off my computer, and went back and looked later.  I still have over 400 views!   My only conclusion is that someone is looking at Grandmother Wisdom.  All I can say is thank you so very much and please keep looking! You have made my day!!  If you want to make a comment or two, please feel free.

You are welcome here.

Thank you!

The Incredible Egg Carton

Egg Cartons hold those precious, delicious eggs that we eat for breakfast, add to cakes, and serve deviled at parties. When the eggs are used, do your egg cartons end up in the garbage or recycle bin?  Those nifty 12-holed cartons have more life than we think.  Check out the following ideas that will give your egg cartons uses that are more practical.

  • Wash foam cartons and use them for making ice-cubes.
  • Fill each space with a fresh basil leaf and add water. Freeze. When a recipe calls for the fresh herb, just drop in a cube.
  • Make homemade pesto with your garden ingredients. Fill the twelve spots with a tablespoon of pesto. Cut off the lid side of the carton; insert the bottom in a gallon size freezer bag, then freeze the pesto cubes. Now you can create your own sauces and dips with your homemade pesto.
  • Fit carton into high boots to help keep the boots upright and in shape.
  • With a foam carton, use the compartments for a kids painting project.
  • Store jewelry (earrings work great) in each compartment.
  • When building a project, keep your nails, screws, and other building do-dads in the compartments to avoid lost parts.
  • Cut off the lid and use the bottom compartments to sort stuff in your junk drawer.
  • Make your own campfire starter by filling each compartment of the carton with a bit of straw or newspaper, and cover with melted wax.  When the wax hardens, use one of the compartments to start the fire. If you light the straw or newspaper and add it to your kindling, the wax will melt and keep the kindling burning long enough to add large logs.
  • Use a foam or cardboard carton to start plants using seeds.
  • Store small Christmas ornaments in the carton to keep them safe.
  • The perfect snack size can be measured in 12 easy servings.  Place M&M’s, nuts, dried fruit or any small snack in each compartment. Once filled you have the perfect snack size.  Transfer to a plastic sandwich bag and now you can have a snack ready for when you are on the go.
  • Kids will love gelatin rounds. Fill a foam egg container with gelatin that has been mixed according to directions. Refrigerate until set. Pop out of the carton. Great dessert for the kids!

Do you have any egg carton uses or ideas that have not been listed?  Please share your ideas with us.

Perseid Meteor Shower

Every year in August, we are given a show from the Perseid Meteorites.  It is a special time for me because when my son was younger, he and I would sit in the back yard until the wee hours of the morning watching them streak across the eastern sky.

It is suppose to be the best meteor shower of the year, according to NASA.  From Friday, August 10th until Sunday, August 12th, NASA expects that the Perseids will peak at about 100 per hour.  This is predicted to be an amazing show, and there is another treat in store for sky watchers.  “The brightest planets in the solar system are lining up right in the middle of the [Perseid] display,” NASA says. Specifically, “Jupiter, Venus and the crescent moon are gathering together just as the Perseid meteor shower reaches its peak.”

The best time to view is between midnight and 4 A.M.  It is best to be in a dark sky, but even closer to city lights, viewers will be able to spot a few meteors.  Enjoy the show!
