Good morning, covcas ... that is an EXCELLENT idea ... you should patent it ... goodness, those electric burners at Yankee Candle cost $19.99. I know because I bought one weekend before last ... then you buy the little floater things that you crush and put in them for the smell which cost IDK, I don't remember ... but your idea is much less expensive ... never thought about it ... the coffee cup warmer isn't going to break the candle glass because it doesn't break the coffee cup ... wow, brilliant idea ... I'll give you a bright yellow light bulb, too! Good day to you, covcas! FC <3 ...
And they're about $5 or less at WalMart. We used to like to have candles going, but when the little one got big enough to walk around, we didn't want the flames anymore

Top of the morning, FC!

Our Cov always has good ideas. I think there is a coffee mug warmer in my house ... somewhere.

Ricky, my first post went poof. Not sure why, since it was my usual style greeting.

I was just getting used to seasonal temps, when the uncooperative weather decided to frost my happy with cool 40F. On a bright note, warmer is anticipated for Thursday. Yay!

Morning everyone

Junket, a couple of weeks ago the Bed Bath and Beyond in my town had candle warmers on sale for $2.99.

Greetings Sublime and Dazzling!

Not sure what's up with that Sublime. Perhaps we were caught in the spam filter.

BB&B - I'll keep it mind. Really dislike the idea of tossing a perfectly fine candle. I'm assuming the candle warmers don't care about wicks? We don't often light - pets are unpredictable at best. While I like the scent, it's possible I might leave a fire hazard unattended. Learned my lesson the hard way in '02.(Burner on - Junket elsewhere in the house. Very scary close call.)

Has the humping and grinding begun?
Top of the morning, all.
Looks like it's going to be another quiet day.

Morning Gtar and Cov!

Positive thinking. That's the ticket.

Well, have this cup of coffee to help warm up this morning! I think the rain is supposed to me moving in later today for us. and I was so loving the sunshine and 70's temps of yesterday. Think I'll pout for a while and see if that does me any good.

Morning Perse! I'm still waking up. Terrible funk yesterday, but I intend to turn over a new leaf today.

Lady C! You could try pouting, but that hasn't worked for me in years. The last time I stuck my lower lip out, my husband told me I looked ridiculous. He said it lovingly, though.

Mornin' all.

I don't see nothing wrong, with a little hump and grind.:-)

Last day off, then back to the ranch I go! Weekend will be here soon, thoug, and it is looking to be nice. I think I will try to get most of my plants in the garden. Looks like frost should be over with.

Baking cookies with my son. I took them to the store yesterday to spend some of their Easter $, and my one son wanted cookies.

Yesterday, I also bought a sissy bar for my bike, so Bambi will have a back rest. It's a quick release one. So I can just pop it on when I have a passenger and leave it off when I don't.

Have a good one!

Greetings Russsh and Sublime!

I'm doing tickety-boo, today.(Not really, but I'm working on improving my mood.)

I didn't know those were called sissy bars. Huh.
There are some bike riders in my family. I try to keep quiet, but they scare me. The terrain where I live is far from level and many of the drivers on the road are nutso.

I had a friend who used to tool around on her bike until she was hit by a senior citizen. She didn't use the word "senior citizen" - TOS prevents me from quoting her verbatim. She wasn't interested in replacing the bike and ended up buying a Volvo. Claimed they were safer than most vehicles. She's been gone for a few years now - I miss her.

We all die, Lady J. Some of us never live, though.

You can do everything to avoid risk, hide in a shell, fear what will eventually come to all of us, and yet there still are no guarantees (as your friend's life illustrates), or you can live life on your terms and enjoy the ride while it lasts. I choose the latter.

Bambi was afraid at first too. After her first ride with me she told me she feels safe with me. I started riding motorcycles when I was 6 or 7. The vast majority of riders don't have that advantage. So it's natural to me. Despite this, there are no guarantees in riding or in life. There are ways to ride to mitigate the risks, however.

Greetings and Salutations Ms Junket.

Seems that there's a real drive (pun?) in LA to get people out of cars and onto bikes. We are even seeing the addition of bike lanes popping up. So much more preferable to those who choose to ride their bikes on the sidewalks. It seems I spend a fair amount of time dodging bikes, skate boarders and pit bulls during the simple act of walking down to the grocery store and back. One less sidewalk participant to contend with is good news for me.

Greetings Rose of T!

Bike trails/lanes are a wonderful idea. It's motorcycles that scare me. Sublime is correct. Cotton wool protection isn't the answer. Might as well live in a bubble.

Sublime, it's not your skill at the helm that would trouble me. It's the lack of civility on the road. My friend had her accident many years ago. There are more drivers now and quite a few are either in their golden years or on the brink. You could be squashed before you even had a chance to react. 4000 pounds versus ?

Okay. Glad I got that out of my system. I won't mention again.
