Meceka, I sure admire you for all the things you make from scratch. I make lots of things from scratch and cook mostly fresh foods. I would love to make ketchup! I have so many food sensitivities that even ketchup upsets my stomach. I guess there are too many preservatives in them? Not sure. I would probably do better making it myself. I never thought of doing that! Just like making my homemade peanut butter I can never go back to the jar stuff. I would probably do the same with the ketchup! I think I need a recipe from you! =)

I think he was more upset than usual because he has been bragging for years on how much better the Patriots are than the Bengals. He lost some of his argument with that game.
Oh yeah, I get what you mean! That's why I don't go around saying my team will do it all. The way the Boys have been playing for quite some time now I don't want to look stupid! I still love them and always hold out hope for them!

I also have to do some laundry. So I'm going to have to be a bad boy and walk on my foot some. At least it's not real far though. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
we are way done with AC here, getting to a point where we are considering turning on the heat.
Carefull with the walking, I wasn't and am paying for it now!

We're kinda in between. The A/Cs have been stowed away for the winter, but the heat hasn't really kicked in yet. I'm sure it'll be on every morning by the end of the month, though.

I just read an article about 21 of the original Muppets being donated to the Smithsonian. Kermit has been there 19 years already (when I saw him, they had him in a display with Charlie McCarthy and Irving Berlin's piano). Now Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, the Swedish Chef, and others are there too. It made me feel a little wistful. I grew up with the original Muppet Show, and to me the Muppets just haven't been the same since Jim Henson passed away and the Muppets became Disney properties. It's amazing how many of the "little" Muppet Show characters I can still identify, like Camilla the chicken and Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker. When I listen to "The Twelve Days of Christmas" on the John Denver and the Muppets Christmas album, I think I can still identify every voice.

I have already done 2 loads of laundry, unloaded the dishwasher, and next I will tackle the sink faucet, got to replace the whole thing.

Just watching some Christmas With The Kranks now.

I hope you all have a great Pines Eve!!!!


I will be popping in and out throughout the day, I can't stay away from the MMC for too long.
LOL I did not go into a store once for the same reason!
Sounds like you have a full day, enjoy!
