See this...

A few mornings ago I fried myself a egg for breakfast and washed the dishes and left them on the drainer to dry.

Later in the day I glanced over and noticed this...
See all those marks on the spatula? Apparently it has been laid on a hot frying pan or two and of course I keep things forever! Had to laugh and of course I promptly put it back in the drawer.

Christmas

Recently a friend shared that she would not be able to put up many Christmas decorations this year and I told her to be sure and pick the ones that make you smile.....

I decided to take my own advice:)

Did you know



Around the age of four or five the female polar bear can start having babies. They usually only have two cubs and they have these babies in a cave they've dug in a large snow drift.  They stay there over winter and come out in spring with the babies. 



The babies are much smaller than human babies when they're born.  They are the size of a rat and weigh little more than a pound.  They can grow to full man size in a year if they have lots of food.

Male polar bears may grow 10 feet tall and weigh over 1400 pounds.  Females reach seven feet and weigh 650 pounds.  In the wild polar bears live up to age 25


Despite what we think, a polar bear's fur is not white.  Each hair is a clear hollow tube.  Polar bears look white because each hollow hair reflects the light. On sunny days, it traps the sun's infrared heat and keeps the bear warm at 98 degrees F (when they're resting).
Polar bear fur is oily and water repellent. The hairs don't mat when wet, allowing the polar bears to easily shake free of water and any ice that may form after swimming.
Underneath the fur, a polar bear's skin is actually black -- the black skin soaks up the sun's heat and helps them stay warm.
Polar bears also have a 4 inch layer of fat underneath their skin.  This prevents them from losing any of their heat.
 
Polar bears have wide front paws with slightly webbed toes that help them swim.  They paddle with their front feet and steer with their hind feet.  Paw pads with rough surfaces help prevent polar bears from slipping up on the ice. Polar bears have been known to swim 100 miles at a stretch.

Polar bears primarily eat seals and humans are the polar bears only predator.
It is said that Polar bears are left-handed but I sure don't know how they came to that conclusion, don't think you would want to ask him.............

Check this out...



Located in Portsmouth, UK
In the middle of the Solent on one of the restored "Palmerston", (19th century) forts.
A short (30 minute) boat journey brings you to this location which has been totally restored to offer a hotel with 360 degree uninterrupted views, roof terrace with fire pit, sauna/hot-house, hot tubs and lighthouse tower. The rooms are HUGE (with all en-suite facilities) and there are numerous "gentlemens club" type lounges.

There are only nine luxurious suites and you will be treated like a king and queen
from the time to arrive until time to leave.
 
 
Fire pit
 
 
Spa with a killer view
 
Definitely not the norm..

Faith
















Faith is not necessary when you know how things are going to work out, - that's knowledge. It's in the time of unknowing that having faith is what sees you through to the other side. Faith is what gives you strength. Faith is that light in your heart that keeps on shining even when it's all darkness outside. Like the wind, you can't see it, but you know it's there

Happy Halloween






Temperatures will finally start to get out of the 90-degree range for Halloween, but expect one more day of possibly record-breaking heat first.
Saturday broke a 2007 record high of 95 degrees with a high of 96 degrees here in the Valley. Sunday looks to possibly continue that trend. The record high for Sunday is 94 degrees, and the predicted high for Sunday is 93 degrees, according to National Weather Service,

Hubby is having surgery today on the second eye hope it goes as well as the first time.
 UPDATE: THE SURGERY WENT GREAT!!!!!

Globe

Last Sat. hubby suggested we take a drive to Globe, Az. about 120 miles from our home. I love to do things like that and it is a beautiful drive once you start climbing up. Here are a few pictures...
 
Not only is it green but it soon has these amazing boulders...
(little blurry but then we were doing about 80mph)
 
 
 
Globe is a mining town and became ranked as one of the world's richest in copper in it's hay day.
 
There are several beautiful old buildings there but the one that I fell in love with was the Holy Angels Catholic Church built in 1918
 
 
On the opposite side of the street they were having a car show and of course I had to pick one of two to show you....

 
 

The weather was wonderful for walking so we followed the signs and walked.
 
Of course up close and personal just can't be beat. Take a look at the detail of this building...
Yep, that's my man...

 
We also drove through the housing areas and let me tell you, everything is either going up or going down. I think it puts San Francisco to shame. This is just one street
 
and this is the house right next to us on this road.
Up on a hill and needing repair.

 In small towns the High School kids gather rocks and put them up on the highest hill and arranges them in the beginning letter of their town. Globe has theirs in pink!

 
 
We decided we should have lunch and picked this hole in the wall Mexican food restaurant.
These chances can be either a good thing or a bad thing but this little place that held only 22 patrons was fantastic. All homemade...we hit the jackpot!!!
 
 
Globe's economy remains heavily dependent on the mining industry, and as of 2008 the city was home to one of the few operating copper smelters in the United States.
 
It was a good day....

Movie review

In the past hubby and I went to the movies EVERY Fri. but our schedule changed and now we go very rarely.
Sat. we went to see Sully and I must say it was so different than what I thought it would be and soooo good. If you get the chance to go you won't be sorry.
