Aveeno to the Rescue

If your hair begins to fall out you might want to consider what kind of shampoo you use. It happened to me so I switched to Aveeno shampoo with nourish+moisturize. That was the name on the bottle. After about three weeks my hair stopped falling out and looks 100% better. I am so happy I want to tell everybody about it. I am not getting one dime for this endorsement. I am so impressed with this shampoo. I had almost accepted the loss of hair as another thing that goes with old age. It isn’t bad enough you have to lose your teeth and hearing and all those other things too numerous to mention now I am going to have to go around bald headed. My hair was damaged from the shampoo I had been using. Not all shampoos are made in heaven, but Alveeno is. You don’t have to go to heaven to buy it. Walmart and Target are a couple stores that carry it. I’m sure most stores carry it. I LOVE IT !!!

It's Expired

Honest to Pete !! Who, on this planet, would name their baby girl "Borrene" ? This came in the mail. Not only do they not know what my real name is, they know even less about my car. It is a 20 year old OTH Plymouth Voyager. OTH stands for Over The Hill. It probably should be under the hill, but it is still functioning very well.
I am getting a lot of mail addressed to this Borring person. I even get mail addressed to Le Master. That’s it, just Le Master. No first name because they think my first name is Le.
My name is Lorrene. NOT Borrene.

Call It What It Is

Back to the shower. This is a picture of a cake made out of rolled up cloth diapers and extra decorations. One of the decorations, as you can see, is a tube of Butt Paste. I think Nancy, one of the Grandma’s, made the cake. Anyway us Grannies that came out of the, prim and proper age, was just floored. You mean they really call it ‘Butt Paste".
Helen almost went into cardiac arrest. One of the gifts was somewhat complicated, but it came with a video to show how it works. Now, back in our day, we would have had to figure it out on our own.

Thanks to Nancy, Emily and Cora for the fun party.

Molly's Baby Shower

This is a picture of my Granddaughters, Molly and Emily.
It was a baby shower for Molly. The baby will make the fourth Great Grand child for me. We don't know if it's a boy or girl, but will find out in two or three weeks. The dolls she is holding are a couple of crocheted dolls I made of Molly and Paul. The Molly doll has red hair and a very pregnant tummy. We had a very good time with lots of laughs, conversation and some very yummy food. The four Grandmothers were at the party.

The Internet Whisperer

The old bundle deal. I am so tired of the game. You can get their internet hookup which is so smashing fast, it’s even faster than the speed of light and the free long distance phone and 900 TV stations all for one low price for a solid year. No fuss no muss, just sign up today because this offer will not last. Go ahead, sucker, and sign up. I don’t think you can get one without the other. If you do it will cost more than your arm and leg so you sign up. You get the bill and it varies each month. Sometimes they just nudge it up a few dollars with no exclamation what so ever. They have a telephone system that is connected to each part of the universe. The purpose for that is so their operators can transfer you to another country because they don’t know the answer to your simple question. I know I have been all over the continent and a few times I was even transferred to some galaxy in the milkyway. I finally decided to just accept it and life was moving along at the usual turtle pace. When one day I received this E-bill from these speed demons. My year was up so they jumped the price up 40 dollars. This calls for action and I don’t mean phone action. This calls for up close and personal action. So I loaded myself up in the car and paid a friendly visit to this place. She told me that they have another ‘Special’ going on and she can get me into that. She quoted a price that was ten dollars less per month than I am paying now. I said, "Good deal Lucille, sign me up!" I was standing there humming a happy tune while she was clicking away on her keyboard. She lookrd up at me and said, "You do realize this is before taxes, don’t you?"
Well, that took care of the happy tune because this is the most, taxed to the max, state in the union. We even pay tax on tax. If they need money for something they jump the tax up some more. "How much will that be?" I asked. She did some more clicking on her keyboard and came back with a figure that is ten dollars more than I am now paying. It’s a game, I tell you. A GAME. First they make you think they are raising your price 40 dollars and then after all the wheeling and dealing they make you think you are getting an even less price than you were paying before. Now that they have you in this calm submissive state they spring the truth on you. It’s just like Cesar Millan training a dog. I’m going to start calling them ‘The Internet Whisperer".

Water Don't Run Up Hill Prayer

Water Doesn’t Run Uphill Prayer
I am a born again/saved Christian. The term means we believe God became a human being and came to earth to live as we do and was crucified for our sins.
One day I was at the Walmart and when I got back in my car to leave I remembered that the car had been having a problem. Sometimes it would start and sometimes it wouldn’t. With that thought in mind I said a short prayer. It went like this, "God, please let the car start." Then I turned the key on and it was deader than a doornail. So I called the Rescue Squad, which is my son, the mechanic. I had a long wait for the Rescue Squad to get there so I said another prayer. "God, why didn’t you let my car start?" He seemed to say to me, "I don’t make water run up hill." I had a lot of time to ponder what I felt was his answer. Water only runs down hill and it’s one of those God given laws, and he isn’t going to change it for you or me. You can pray til the cows come home and water is not going to run up hill. You can put it in a pipe and force it up a hill, but it’s not going to do it naturally. This is what God was saying, "The car is broken and you need to get it fixed ".
How many times do we say those, water don’t run up hill prayers. Then we think it must not have been God’s will. Maybe it was a "Water doesn't run up hill prayer". For those of you who care, there was a broken wire in one of the cables that connect to the battery. There was no way the car was going to start until the wires in the cable were repaired.
God is not our mechanic.

Just My Opinion

What is the big deal? So the food manufactures don’t put an accurate calorie count on the frozen dinners. I would much rather they would put something edible in their boxes, and forget the calorie count. I just attempted to eat some Swedish meatballs with pasta and real sour cream. There were four small meatballs in the whole box. I hate eating out of a box so I transfer it to a dish before eating. It doesn’t improve the taste any, it’s just one of my quirky habits. I do find some TV dinners that are rather tasty, but you do get what you pay for.
That is my thought on that subject.
How do you like commercials? Some are funny or clever and you can watch them over and over without wanting to throw up. There are the exceptions, however. Those old people that decided they are going to retire is on the top of my list of irritating commercials. I haven’t seen it for awhile so maybe they have pulled it off the air.
I am getting a little sick of Wilford Brimley and his Liberty medical ads. I personally wish he would ride off into the sunset in his motor home and stay away, but that’s just me.

Scam Rats

I just have to let you know about my lucky break in 2010.
I received an email from New Zealand. In fact it is from Sir Allen Smith. (Doesn’t it sound impressive) Sir Allen Smith, no less. An American sounding name.
This grease ball is on some Committee of foreign contract on payment notification from United Nations and USA government (yes, that is about how clear it is)

It is addressed to Attn: Lucky Beneficiary, (that must mean me) I am jumping up and down and clapping my hands. According to Sir Allen Smith, the USA Government, World Bank, and United Nations has approved to pay my part payment valued at $350,000 for 2010 fund approval.

The letter goes on and on and ends with a request for:

How can anybody fall for this garbage? It must happen or they wouldn't keep fishing. You would think if they are going to send me all this money they would at least know my name. It shouldn't take a PHD in Rat Smelling to know it's a scam.

The pictures I've seen of the Detroit Bomber looks like he is in a trance and has never come out of it. I know this sounds very crazy, but is it possible to put somebody into a trance and make them do something?
Has anybody ever used that as their defense when they go to trial. I remember Flip Wilson used to say, "The devil made me do it." That is a funny line, but there is a lot of truth in it. If the truth was only known.

Just my two cents worth for today...............or maybe three cents worth.
