Taking a break while my pizza is in the oven. I am now on fixed income too and that is why you don't see me out as much as I once went when I was still working. But I am blessed to be alive and have the ability to help others. My retirement pays my bills, but there is none left for "high times", but if I earned more the IRS would just want it. But they can't drink my coffee and eat my sandwich. LOL (or have some of the cake and pie that I get when I mow some old lady's lawn)

I think that if one believes in the hereafter, the main question that will be asked is "How Did You Treat Others". I don't think it will matter all that much if you had an occasional beer or even lost your temper a few times as long as you can say "I generally did my best". I think most church "rules" are just man made anyways to maintain social conformity and have absolutely nothing to do with Worshipping the Creator and respecting HIS creations. time to check the pizza.

I'm having pizza tonight too. Bought one of those three cheese pizzas last week while I was at the grocery. Got quite a bit of bacon left over from breakfast and am going to put a little bit of pineapple on it too, with extra cheese of course!
:)
The rest of the pineapple is going into one of those Lime flavored Jello, cool whip, cottage cheese and pineapple thingies. I don't know what you call it, but you mix it all together then chill it, and you end up with this dreamy, creamy, lime flavored stuff.
(I've even used Strawberry/Banana Jello and thrown sliced fresh strawberries and bananas in it in stead of the lime/pineapple. That stuff is SO good)!

Obviously, the personal diet is on hold for tonight and tonight only. Gotta splurge once in a while!!

Might talk to you all later, don't know what's on the agenda yet. If not, have a great night and I"ll catch up later!

i don't know what you call those "thingies" either but my sister in Maysville brings me one on Friday's. There is a layer of crushed pretzels and pecans on the bottom then cream cheese, whipped cream and strawberries sliced thin, in the middle layer. The top is all whipped cream and it's in a 13 x 9" glass pan. I could eat the whole thing but I'd be sick as a dog. Mu sugar would probably go through the roof. 8 months and counting down for my retirement check. Hopefully the Regional VA rep will get my benefits check pushed through before that. She is the Best. I am on the "Express" list and can even call my case worker in Louisville. Pancreatic cancer was Number 1 on the list for my military specialty. I should be dead but the Good Lord saw fit to help beat it. That was 9 years ago.On that topic, Thank You Lord for your Son Jesus.

Don't forget to "Spring Forward" your clocks tomorrow night, can't believe it's that time already!

So much going on here. Have not been on here much. I wish there was two of me. The birds were out of seed when I got home. I bet they wish I was more prompt.

Have to confess, I'm a bird thread troll. Been reading this site for awhile. Most of the posts are interesting. Seems you folks have a kindred spirit.

Nope, wrong desert. Mine is just crushed pineapple, Low Fat cottage cheese, cool whip of which I use the "Lite" brand, and the lime Jello of which I also use the "sugar free".

I've heard of that "thingie" you're talking about too though, but I've never had the opportunity to try any. Everyone says it's absolutely delicious, lol.

I'd like to try that pretzel desert some day, but as you said: I think there would be so much of it that I'd OD on the sugar load..(I gotta watch my sugar, I'm diabetic and eat things in moderation. Timing is also key). With my recipe, I can also use half of everything and not be left with a ton of desert to eat up later, ROFLMBO!!
(That's how I had some pineapple for both the pizza AND the desert)
<<wink wink>>.

I was just checking in. I'm going to go back to reading my book now. Ya'll take care!

There are always two schools of thought on such events-- the ones based in fact or those based in fiction.

I bet there would be a scientific reason for this to happen-- and just because it isn't commonplace at this point in time, doesn't mean that isn't not so.

Doubt seriously it's a sign of the end of times-- people have been screaming that for as long as there have been people -- and as for burning coal, that would be nothing new either therefore it seems doubtful as the cause.

Eventually, researchers and scientists will be able to tell the rest of us-- and until then, that's fine with me--

Fewer rats with wings to pooh on my car... Yeahhhhh, that really tears me up on the inside!!(eyes roll)

Ahh, at least you sound like a happy troll;) That sandwich and soup make an excellent combo. Yum,yum. Healthy. And most birds I've seen can't get fed enough. Nice weekend to you:)

It is said that confession is good for the soul, but I think that some things are better left unsaid or to one's imagination. LOL Besides, none of us are perfect and the only ONE that ever was perfect got hung on a cross. We don't even hang the trolls but just invite them to come join the party. LOL So come on back anytime. Menu suggestions are always welcome. I am looking forward to the time that I can have a baked chicken sandwich with mayo, lettuce, and a slice of real homegrown tomato and not that pinkish-white stuff from the stores.

<quoted text> Wonderful. You know older people most often get taken for granted. Young folks forget that life was really rough 40-50 years ago. Even in the 60s and 70s wages were extremely low in some employment. I remember Grandpa and Dad working for a measly few dollars a week working as track men on the railroad.Fortunately, kind folks like AW, you really do help those who need it.
Elderly people are taken advantage of much to often. I think it's great that AW takes time to help people in need, if everyone did there would be alot less pain in the world.

Good morning bird threaders. I hope you all have been enjoying our beautiful Kentucky weather. I certainly have.

I have all my party snacks together and leaving in an hour to go to a BIG BLUE party. Game at noon, last home game, FLORIDA. If the Cats can't win this one and take the SEC we may not even get to the big dance. Last year we counted on being the CHAMPS, and we were, and this year we are hoping to make the tournament. It really sucks for UK fans. However, we don't ride the wagon just when they are winning, we BLEED BLUE.

I am finished with breakfast dishes, laundry, dusting, etc..fed the birds some banana nut bread, HB buns, stale bread and fresh bird seeds. I love the additional birds showing up everyday. Spring is here. Don't forget to SPRING your clocks forward. lol

I wish I would have caught you on last night. Too late when I got home to even open the laptop. Sorry I missed OJG. Happy to see her posts though.

Seen this video and cracked up, enjoy:

Listen up,'DWTS': These dogs probably dance better than Andy Dick

THE NOW video Dogs around the globe have been entertaining their owners and anyone else who'll stop long enough to watch them since well, since dogs have existed. How else do you think they earned their "man's best friend" reputation? We're not sure if some special canines have always had the ability to dance or if YouTube has magically helped create this growing phenomenon. Either way, we couldn't be more grateful for these hypnotizing videos of our favorite four-legged friends trotting around on just two. Merengue time!

Photos: Locusts plague Holy Land

Locusts that recently arrived from Egypt cling to a tree in Kmehin, Israel, on Wednesday, March 6. Tens of millions of locusts have overtaken Egyptian desert land in the past few days and are heading to Israel and Jordan, according the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization. The last time Israel experienced a major infestation was in 2004.

Springbreak anyone? lol

Florida beaches on high alert for shark migration
Thousands of sharks on their annual migration north have closed beaches along the southern Florida coast.

Beaches along the southern coast of Florida are on high alert after sharks were spotted near shore as part of their annual migration.
Many beaches had red flags flying on Thursday morning to alert people, but some beaches had reopened.

Sharks were spotted near three beaches in Palm Beach County on Wednesday, but they had reopened on Thursday morning, The Palm Beach Post reported. However, Steve Kaes, a lifeguard training officer, told the paper that he couldn't guarantee that the beaches would remain open throughout the day. If someone spotted a shark, swimmers would be asked to come out of the water, he said.

Sky News reported that many South Florida beaches were shut down after thousands of migrating sharks were spotted near shore.

"Tens of thousands of the predators" were coming to shore and toward swimmers during their annual migration north, according to ABC News.

Some students on spring break are opting to stay out of the water altogether, according to ABC News.
Pictures taken by Jeffrey Langlois of the Palm Beach Daily News show the sharks, mostly blacktip and spinner sharks, coming close to the shore.

"We saw something moving in the water and everybody was saying,'oh shark,'" one witness in Palm Beach told ABC News.

About 50 to 60 sharks were spotted near the shore in Palm Beach on Tuesday.

Lifeguards in Palm Beach told ABC News that the sharks for the most part don't disturb the beaches.
"We don't have a sandbar. A lot of times when we have a sandbar the sharks stay off of the shore a little further," Craig Pollack, a lifeguard supervisor in Palm Beach, told ABC News.
Researchers at Florida Atlantic University say they have counted around 15,000 sharks, most of them less than 200 yards from shore.

Shark expert George H. Burgess told The Post that overcast skies made it more difficult to spot them
