Mein neuer bester Freund

I want you to meet Mein neuer bester Freund (my new best friend) BFFF, given to me by my BFF Lola.

In a prior post you will find I spilled 87,000 Necta Sweet Pills  at 4 am.

Lola read the post and emailed me and said I have a gift for you that will solve your problem, it is in my purse and I will bring it to you on Monday.... What??? Wait a whole WEEK?

I waited and here it is..... All the way from Germany..

Hold this little box over my hand or over the cup, push the top down and ONE pill drops out.. Just one... want two? PUSH the top..Just one more...... I LOVE IT. and it came with 1200 tablets....
 Hee Hee Hee... my little red squiggles under the German words are warning me the words are misspelled.

I also want to share the two plastic containers WITH handles, that I bought to put sugar and creamer in...

The reason being  the GLASS containers I have used for Twenty Five Years, are in danger of being dropped due to OLD age. ( had a few near misses lately) .....My floor is Tile and I do not want to clean up glass... The handle makes it easier and safer to hold...

For those of you still with me..... I looked up the words that are on the bottle since they are in German.. if you care read on... if not see you tomorrow.

Sunflower 'leftovers'

Proof Positive Old Age CAN be Beautiful... 

My skin droops
My eyelids sag
My tummy hangs down
Everything is round.
Wrinkles abound.
 I AM BEAUTIFUL just like this his declining flower

“As long as I am breathing, in my eyes, I am just beginning.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

“It’s [old age] not a surprise, we knew it was coming – make the most of it. So you may not be as fast on your feet, and the image in your mirror may be a little disappointing, but if you are still functioning and not in pain, gratitude should be the name of the game.”
Betty White, If You Ask Me

I took this from my driver side window on the way to Dollar General Store a few days ago...the sun appeared to be pointing it out to me, that I needed to Stop and Snap!

In today's news paper, I found this information
 65 denominations operate more than 230 houses of worship in the county, according to the Manatee Chamber of Commerce.
Church property is valued at more than $297 million, upon which there are no taxes paid.
One church is worth 12 million, another 3 are each worth 6 million and another will soon past the 12 million mark.

1 in 5 of our children are hungry, and we have no low income housing. Yet we have marble floors and marble walls in the churches..

America the Beautiful Wasteful ?

40 % of all food grown in the USA is thrown in the trash dump. Not the left overs, but good edible food.
Dump trucks of it...

I watched a special on CNN on hunger... Our farmers can only sell the beautiful fruit/veggies.
No one will buy the yellow cauliflower, which is just as good, they pick the perfect and white caulilower and the rest is plowed under, The broccoli was taken to the dump by truck.
We as Americans want the beautiful and perfect, the round not crooked.
So they trash it.

Mother Nature presented her own fireworks for free last night.

The 30 minute display put on by our county cost 40,000 dollars. This was not the only display in the county, there were 6 of them. I did the math on the cost.


1 in 5 children in America and in  our county are hungry. We have over 1000 homeless people in our downtown area,
