Installing a Husband

 This was sent to me and I thought it was a bit on the funny side.  One never knows one might need to make some hubby adjustments so here are the instructions you may want to have handy:

 

INSTALLING A HUSBAND

Dear Tech Support

,
Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed a distinct slow down in overall system performance, particularly in the flower and jewelry applications, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5..0

.
In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as
 Romance 9.5 and  Personal Attention 6.5, and then installed undesirable programs such as

NBA 5.0,
NFL 3.0
 and
Golf Clubs 4.1..

Conversation 8.0
 no longer runs, and Housecleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system.

Please note that I have tried running Nagging 5.3

 to fix these problems, but to no avail.

What can I do?
Signed,
Desperate..

      

 

DEAR DESPERATE,

 

 

 

 

 

 

    

 

   

 

  

 

 

 

 

First, keep in mind,
 Boyfriend 5.0 is an Entertainment Package, while  Husband 1.0 is an operating system.

Please enter command:
 ithoughtyoulovedme.html, try to download Tears 6.2, and do not forget to install the Guilt 3.0 update.
If those applications work as designed, Husband 1.0 should then automatically run the applications Jewelry 2.0 and Flowers 3.5.

However, remember, overuse of the above application can cause
 Husband 1.0 to default to
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

Grumpy Silence 2.5, Happy Hour 7.0, or Beer 6.1.
Please note that Beer 6.1 is a very bad program that will download the  Snoring Loudly Beta.

Whatever you do,
 DO NOT under any circumstances install Mother-In-Law 1.0 (it runs a virus in the background that will eventually seize control of all your system resources.)

In addition, please do not attempt to reinstall the
 Boyfriend 5.0-program. This is an unsupported application and will crash Husband 1.0.

In summary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited memory and cannot learn new applications quickly. You might consider buying additional software to improve memory and performance.. We recommend
Cooking 3.0 and
Hot Lingerie 7.7.

Good Luck!

Tech Support
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

 Hope you are having a great day …  Judi xoxo

Superbowl Sunday

I hope you’ve been having a good Sunday.  Many of you might be getting ready for a Superbowl Party…going to or hosting one.

Marc has been in Jacksonville, FL on business  allll last week and won’t be back until Friday.  So its been just Abby  2009-january-001and me  doing our thing AND today is Superbowl Sunday and neither of us is celebrating.  Just by ourselves.  We were on the phone earlier and we were laughing because he  has a self contained kitchenette in the hotel and will be cooking up hot dogs for dinner along with Diet Coke, potato chips and he found a package of popcorn in his microwave.  So he’ll pop that up for the festivities.

Me on the other hand am going “big” style.  I boiled a few potatoes during our conversation and I’ll make myself some potato salad, and I’m frying up some onions and peppers and I’m slapping that into my hotdog too!  *lol*.   So its not nice being apart again today.  It isn’t however the first time we’ve watched  something on TV together he in the States and me in Canada while we’ve been on the phone.   I have a fabulous long distance plan.  Its 25 cents PER call and we can talk as long as we want.  

The weather today is sooo beautiful.  February first and it feels like a spring day for a change (its only fooling us  though) its really not getting into spring yet.   From below freezing temps we’re up to 36F so THATS a celebration and the skies are blue.   Let’s see what the prediction will be tomorrow on “Ground Hog’s Day”.   We will see whether Wiarton Willie sees his shadow or not!

I’ve been out thrifting and I’ll share that with you tomorrow for Sally’s BLUE Monday.  I think there is a revelation going on blogland is certaining transforming me from the way I was before.    I always continue to say I’ve learned so much about so much and I’m seeing things differently…many things thanks to all my wonderful blogging friends.

*hugs* and enjoy this day…  Judi xoxo

Duck Facts

 I posted this week about the ducks swimming in the cold water surrounded by ice and snow around my place. I decided to look up some facts about ducks and…here they are. By the way apparently ducks have a system with their arteries so that warm blood flows from their heart and interweaves with the cold blood that is coming from their feet warming the blood. Therefore it keeps their feet and legs warm.

A girl duck makes a loud quack sound while the boy duck, or drake has a raspy, muffled call. 

Touching a duckling doesn’t prevent the mother duck from taking care of it. It is however best to leave ducklings alone so as not to scare the Mom duck away or accidentally injure them. 
     
Ducks sleep with half their brains awake. Ducks are more likely to sleep with one eye open when they are located on the edge of sleeping groups. They can detect predators in less than a second.

Duck eggshells have tiny holes (pores) that allow it to breathe. A hen’s eggs can have 7500 pores, most found at the blunt end of the egg. Respiratory gases as well as water vapor travel through these pores allowing the egg to breathe.

 Ducks can live 20 or more years with good care and feeding. Apparently the world’s record is held by a Mallard Drake that lives 37 years. Now thats a long time!

  Baby ducks are precocial, meaning they are born with their eyes wide open, with a warm layer of down, and are not fully dependant on their parents for food.   Ducklings are ready to leave the nest within hours of hatching.

 A clutch is the total number of eggs laid by one bird during one nesting session. Clutch size affected by hereditary and environmental factors.   When food is abundant, birds lay more eggs.

  A brood is the total number of hatchlings, or ducklings in a clutch.

 Ducks have very good vision, and they can even see in colour.

 Did you know that a duck’s quack doesn’t echo? Nobody knows why.

I hope you’ve found these facts interesting… and that you have a lovely day.   Judi xoxo

Cat Paint Jobs

 image014

These pictures were forwarded to me  through emails and I wanted to share them with you especially the cat lovers…and the artists. 

Apparently these paint jobs can cost $15,000 each and they grow out of the colour in 3 months and some people spend $60,000. a year.  Can you imagine even having that kind of money to paint your cat?  They must be show cats.

They are really something.  How could you get your cat to sit still this long?

This kitty is striking in its red, white and blues.  Would he feel silly or would he feel fabulous…surely he would get some reaction from the response around him.   

 

 

 image0101Love this one….

Thrift Dishes

Tonight my eldest son Geoff and his wife and my little Madeline are coming over for dinner!  We’re having crusted tenderloin, twice baked potatoes, green beans, peas and pearl onions in white sauce,  and a salad filled with veggies.  I’ve saved some of the Tipsy Chocolate Cake I made on Saturday for our dessert.  I think it’ll be yummy.

I am going to give them these Wedgewood Group Stoneware dishes I picked up while thrifting this fall with the intension of giving it to them.    I believe they were $14.00 .  Included were 8 like new dinner plates, cups and a large veggie serving bowl.  2009-january-0211

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is the underside.  They are oven to tableware made by Wedgewood Group in England.  Nice aren’t they? 

2009-january-017

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is a better look at the plate which suits their decor.   They have glasses that will look perfect with the plates as well.   The moment I saw them I had them on my mind and I had to get them.  I have had them in a box ready to give to them so its about time I do!   I  hope they like them too.2009-january-0161   Boy I love a good deal on something so worth it!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hope you have a lovely day…  Judi xoxo

Blue Monday

Blue Monday Instructions

Its BLUE Monday and it is.  Back to work and its BLUE Monday hosted by Sally from SmilingSally.  Be sure to click on Sally’s blog for more BLUE Monday participants.  Grab your coffee and enjoy…

Walking out my door and building this is the lovely view I get…pretty white snow the trees and BLUE skies.   2009-january-0091

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When its dark and I walk past that spot in the dead of winter I feel like I’m all alone.  Everything is so quiet and still  and then I hear it.  A “quack, quack, quack, quack” coming from somewhere near in that darkness.   It makes me smile.  I guess they know I’m there… and now I’ve captured them to show you.  2009-january-006

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Can you see them all down below the banks in the woods?  There are so many ducks down there in the BLUE water …lots of them and its winter!    They are a bit hard to see in the picture but you can tell their little necks and heads I’m sure.  I was standing up on a snow bank almost knee deep in snow to take this picture and some of them squak quacked and moved to the left of the picture where we can’t see them.  Even though its very freezing cold around here the water in that area doesn’t freeze over because it has movement and the ducks hang out there swimming.  They do the same in the summer too.  How come they don’t freeze their little footies I wonder?  

Thats my BLUE Monday post.   I hope whether you have the cold of the snow or the warmth of the sand that  you are having a lovely day…. Judi xoxo
