1. The Most Evil Woman ... Elizabeth Bathory... her family tree
The Most Evil Woman ... Elizabeth Bathory... her family tree
Well, it seems that I have found another family tree to work on and this one belongs to one of the evil women in history. I'm hoping that I don't find her on my tree. Unfortunately, she has a long line of descendants, so anything is possible. I'm going to start you off with a few videos of her li...

Shadow People
You have probably seen them too... out of the corner of your eye. You notice something and then its gone! You take a second look and there is nothing there?? You might say right about now, that you have never seen anything like this, but just wait. Chances are that you have, but never took any n...

3. Florida Lanai Decorating
Florida Lanai Decorating
I didn't even know what a lanai was, until we began vacationing in Florida. In a nutshell, a lanai is like having another room attached to your house. It can be accessed through patio doors or in some cases, the patio doors slide back to so that the lanai becomes part of the house. And I mentione...

4. Christmas Thoughts and Quotes
Christmas Thoughts and Quotes
I don't think that I ever will. Christmas quotes simply wrap themselves around you taking you to the past and then into the future in a blink of an eye. I wonder just how many Christmas quotes have actually have been collected. Wouldn't it make for a great project? So, what is Christmas? It is t...

Could You Be Related to Bonnie Parker of Bonnie and Clyde??
Okay, here is another infamous woman I have decided to check into. I love to know what makes people tick . Lately, I have been exploring family trees, and in Bonnie's case, who was on her family tree that made her the kind of woman she was. Are there any hints? Was she related to a line dangerous...

Planning A Snowflake Wedding
Can you imagine anything more romantic? I only wish that I had thought of it when I was married... 30 something years ago. It would have worked quite nicely.

Cozy Winter Quotes
To me, winter means all things warm and cozy. To some, it means blizzards and frigid temps. To others, it means curling up with a glass of wine by a roaring fire.

Kate Bush was signed by EMI at the age of 16 after being recommended by none other than Pink Floyd's David Gilmour.

11. Funny Yellow Slippers
Funny Yellow Slippers
Thank goodness for slippers. For me, it's always the perfect solution when I have run out of ideas for what to buy someone. And if they are anything like me, they probably need a new pair anyways, because most of the year, they live in them. After walking around your house for an entire year, you...

Rook/Rooke Family History
*(updated December 28th 2013) I am determined to trace back my family tree. Recently a baby picture of myself turned up and my English roots have suddenly come into question. In the photo, my husband says that I look Middle Eastern. I have found that we do have at least one connection to Turkey,...

Christmas Flash Mobs Around the World
I spent part of the afternoon wrapping gifts and listening to Christmas music and then the idea for Flash Mobs at Christmas just jumped into my head.

15. Bananarama
I think that Bananarama started my interest in female preformers and come to think of it, on my Ipod, I think that it's about a 50/50 split. Music from the 70s has the habit of sounding like music from the 70s. The music of Bananarama simply refused to age. It's fun to listen to as well as takin...

Angels Exist
I saw an angel once. He/She, not really sure which, was sitting with her back to me a few minutes after my sister died in the Intensive Care Unit.

Remembering Olivia Hussey
I don't usually follow celebs... but Olivia Hussey has a warm place in my heart... and probably always will! As I remember it, "Juliet" fashion was huge in the late 60's early 70s and I even found a mini copy of her dress. I just had to have that dress! Now if it had of been full length, I would ...

18. Snap Dragon... the Christmas Game
Snap Dragon... the Christmas Game
This is a rather dangerous game by our standards. Raisins were placed into a bowl of burning brandy and one had to reach into the flames to retrieve the raisins which were then popped into the mouth. The player who retrieved a "special raisin" often a gold coin, was the winner. You have to wonder...

Bath and Beyond
I don't think that I care as much for any other room as I do for my bathroom. That is MY room and it has to be neat! Someone who I won't name, does think the same way that I do, so I offered him a choice... keep the bath tidy, or use the guest bathroom. You can guess which choice he went for. No...

How To Be Happy Today
I think that I made this lens pretty much to remind myself of the fact that if I want to be happy, I can't just sit around and wait for someone else to do it for me. No one can make ME happy but ME! And strangely enough I have had that power all along. I can decide to be miserable or I can de...

Laura at 70 years of age. I don't think that I would have heard of Laura Ingalls Wilder if it hadn't been for my mother. She loved the "Little House on the Prairies" series and owned every book. She went on to say that if it was at all possible, she had to have been born in that era. You know the...

285. Beatle Videos
I guess I was about 12 years old when "Twist and Shout" arrived in our local stores. I just HAD to have that LP... yes, I'm talking about vinyl records. Unfortunately, my weekly allowance was $2.00 a week and all of my social life had to come out of that $2.00. A record album came in at $3.99 and...

286. It's Time to Start on That Spring Garden!
It's springtime as I work on this lens today and everything in our garden is ready to burst into flower or leaf. It's been a mild winter this year, so I have big hopes for a gorgeous garden and to add even more interest, what could be better than a garden flag. The only problem is that there are ...

287. Fun in the Sun: Swimming
My son took to swimming really early without even one lesson. It looks as if his daughter is following in her father's footsteps. Already she loves playing in the water and she is only a year old. And the cutest part is watching her trying to catch the water droplets between her fingers.

290. Marilyn Monroe
Wouldn't it be amazing to be able to step back in time to meet some of the people that you have heard so much about?? I think that she would have been a fascinating woman to talk to! I wonder what she would say if she could see herself on a lunch box?? It's not something you ever think about! Ph...

291. Best of brownies on Twitter
I just knew that creating this Brownie theme was going to bite me... and not in a good way ;). My son is getting married in about 7 months and I have the most gorgeous dress picked out and if I want to fit into it, I'm going to have to cut my brownies into very tiny squares. Give them up... I don...
