Spider web closet. :) posted by Di

Haha, Kevin thinks he's sooooo funny (& actually is). Mysteriously, these closet hangers became "webbed" together, apparently due to my untidy habit of not always placing my hangers up on the rods. LOL. Good one dear:)

The K-dizzle wake up call latte

I've merged a couple of my passions/addictions into a wonderful drink treat.  For reasons that will be obvious below, I currently call it the "K-dizzle Wake Up Call Latte"

First...the stuff you need:  Nestle's fat free french vanilla coffee-mate cream; Sazerac Rye Whiskey; alcohol infused vanilla whipped cream; and one Wake-Up Call K-cup strong java (use Black Tiger or Jet Fuel if you want stronger java taste)

Place Wake Up K-Kup in the magical Keurig coffee machine (thank god for this machine).  Place 1/4+ inch of french vanilla creamer in bottom of vessel  that will receive the hot awesome strong java.

Push start button for large cup of special brew.

Stay strong----do not drink the hot french vanilla flavored strong java.  Put in frig to cool.

When ready, pour desired amount of kick (whiskey) over ice in glass.

Next pour in special chilled french vanilla Wake-Up call from frig....hmmmmmmmmmm.

Optional - if you want less coffee taste, top off with a slight pour of skim milk.  Can you see the enticing streaks in the glass...hmmmmmmmmm

Top of with infused vanilla cream.....stir if you want it to blend in....or simply let sit on the top and enjoy the special elixir filtered through the cream..........hmmm.

Kick back....enjoy.  Vary the key ingredients depending on desired kick (whiskey) and desired java nuance.

The K-diz for short!

Why I am more liberal than conservative

Good characterization of fundamental difference between conservative thinking and those that tend to lean to the left.

New bird video - Orioles (posted by Di)

The first video of my new hobby. This is either a female or juvenile Baltimore Oriole. They love grape jelly and oranges. Unfortunately so do the wasps and bees. Apparently the birds are not intimidated.

Chain saw time part two

Chain saw time

Serious wind damage (winds with effect of tornado) at my sons river lot yesterday. Gave me another chance to use my new chain saw again. Nothing like cutting trees for 2+ hours on a Saturday. Below are pics of some of the damage and the results of three men with chain saws. Rrrrrrrr

A Leprechaun Story . . .

I caught a  little Leprechaun one day and he said if I let him go he  would granted me one wish.
"I want to  live forever, " I said.
"Sorry"  said the Leprechaun, "I'm not allowed to grant wishes  like that!"
"Fine" I  said, "Then just allow me to live until the day after the  Minnesota Vikings win the Super Bowl!"
"Ahh tis a  crafty bastard you are," said the Leprechaun.
