"Someone once told me that time was a predator that stalked us all our lives. I rather believe that time is a companion who goes with us on the journey and reminds us to cherish every moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we've lived."
-Jean Luc Picard

Food posts, weather, etc...

I just looked over my recent posts and realized that I have not done any food posts this week. I haven't really cooked all that much lately. I've kinda been in a funk. Maybe it's the heat. The local weatherdude is predicting that Friday's high will be 102F/39C. I am going to try and get my grocery shopping and errands done before noon tomorrow to escape the worst of it.

I did make a pork roast earlier in the week, but I think the recipe needs more work before I do a post about it. Mr. Hairball for the third week in a row, asked me to make him some brownies. I think he's in a rut or something! Anyway, I used some of that Hershey's special dark cocoa that Kelly of Evil Shenanigans recommends, and I was very pleased with the results. I also made some baked mac and cheese, but I've already blogged about that too. Perhaps next week will be better in terms of food posts!

Flashback Friday is already set up in the queue for a trip back to the 70's.

See you then!

Gagstastic emails part X- The Dirty Dozen

I am supposed to pick 12 women (who have touched my life) and whom I think would want to participate.

I don't really want to participate but thanks for asking!

I think that if this group of women were ever to be in a room together, there is nothing that would be impossible. I hope I chose the right twelve.

*Hairball ducks so the big ball of guilt thrown her way will not stick* Trust me, some things would still be impossible. You really shouldn't have included me in your twelve as I'm a lousy sisterchick disciple.

My hugs, love, gestures and communications hopefully remind you how special that you are. Please send this back to me.

If I am so very special, then you already know that and don't need a stupid email sent back to you as proof of my friendship.

Remember to make a wish before you read the prayer.

Huh? Generally people who strongly believe in the power of prayer are not so big on wishes.

That's all you have to do. There is nothing attached.

That's a relief!

Just send this to twelve people and let me know what happens on the fourth day.

It seems I spoke too soon!

Sorry you have to forward the message, but try not to break this, please.

Too late!

Prayer is one of the best free gifts we receive. Did you make a wish yet?

I'm confused. Are we praying or wishing for something to happen?

If you don't make a wish, it won't come true. This is your last chance to make a wish!

Okay, so we are wishing now?

May today there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us.'

That's very nice but, I'm still not spamming others with it.

Now, send this to 12 women within the next 5 minutes.

It took me longer than that to write this up. I'm living dangerously!

And remember to send this back. I count as 1...you'll see why.

You're going to email me soon about teaching you how to "forward things properly" when nothing happens, right? Look, the joke is that some people keep falling for this.

Suggestion: copy and paste rather than forwarding it.

But that's no fun! If you cut and paste this, future recipients won't be able to see all the email addresses of past recipients since you refuse to use Bcc when doing group emails! Oh, and the insightful comments! Reading inane things like " I sure hope this works" or "What do I have to lose?" is the best part of getting these emails!

Have a wonderful day!!!

I am. It's a real nice sisterchick-free kinda day in the neighborhood!
