My mother's cousin Rhea was always scouting for a good buy. She and Joe, her husband, were as the ole saying goes, 'tight as bark on a tree.' One day Rhea was bragging to mom about some fantastic tuna they had found at the grocery...

We had our yard guy come today and mow and - mostly - clean up the leaves in the yard. Among other things that he did, was put all the bags of cans in one place. I knew I had a good number of cans, but it kept raining and I...

Toni LoCicero What's wonderful in my neighborhood is the neighbors save their recycling for me. The last trip netted me $25+. That was pretty good, and I'm getting close to another trip, especially with the warm weather and the neighbors saving their recycling for me. I...

I must have been distracted. I typed "your" when I meant "you're" in a comment on another's post on MyLot this morning. I posted it, read it, and recoiled in horror. Visions of @Maluse descending on me flooded my mind. I...

Toni LoCicero I try to catch the bad ones, but I also give myself some points for being human. I don't beat myself up too badly over the little mistakes. One can put one's self in the hospital by their striving for perfection. I never was much of a speller to start with,...

Hello friends, well I told you I had another part of the story so I decided to put it all in a blog for you to get the WHOLE detail of it all in one place to wrap your head around it all. So this way you can feel, hear & know...

Toni LoCicero I figured it out!! He's decided to collect aluminum cans from beside the road and cash them in...he can make $700 every three months,...wait, that won't work. Maybe he can sell his body? Nah. That won't work either! That salesman had NO business selling...

It seems that all the time different pet foods are being recalled because a "certain" problem is found in the foods; whether it's canned, crunchie or treats. It is usually Salmonella that is the problem, but the latest...

So today at work we had our Valentine's day party. It went okay--it was different than times past, as the new head teacher was in charge. It was a bit more "stifled" than in times past to me. Anyway, when I got home today,...

Andria Perry (@andriaperry) wrote a post asking whether women drivers do any of their own small car repairs like maybe checking the air pressures in the tyres, changing a windscreen wiper blade or even changing a tyre. You can...

Toni LoCicero I learned a long time ago to do so much of the repair work for myself, whether its automotive or household. When I moved in with my mom many years ago I took over doing all the repair work. Its pretty unusual for a lady to be able to do the kind of stuff I...

Our son and his wife have a puppy cat . They have a Main Coon cat whose name is Sal. Sal looks like the Maine Coon in the photo above, however Sal is much larger. There are certain breeds of cat that have...

Literally! I spent a couple of hours today sorting, cleaning, and cooking lentils. I hate sorting through them and it seems to take forever to make sure there aren't any rocks or other foreign substances in two cups of lentils....

Toni LoCicero First, sorry I haven't been in contact. This mess with the stress is worse than I realized. Will pm you in the am. When you said that your hubby spilled the beans I was sure he let some good tidbit of gossip out. Thankfully he wasn't hurt, just your hard...

A recent hobby I have started learning is how to spin yarn. I fell in love with how rhythmic it is to spin wool into yarn. I learned at first on a drop spindle, and then eventually was surprised when someone gave my husband a...

Back in 1984, when my parents bought this house for me to live in, I said then that I was never going to move again. At that time I was working for the State of Texas. I continued working for the State until 2005. Now, while I...

Toni LoCicero It is amazing how great neighbors can turn out to be in times of need. I'm a pretty much stay to myself person who has learned to keep people at arm's length. They know I'm there for them when they need help but I'm not much for having "sitting and having...

Back at the very end of 2007 a friend here told us about a visitor she had and how she was going to take him to the nearest Walmart and find him another home. I looked up where she lived, San Antonio, and sent her a private...

Lately I have heard a lot of people say this. They don't care a about hunger or abuse elsewhere. They are not interested in news unless they have gory details. Sometimes I think people care more about animals than about their own...

Toni LoCicero With the advances in broadcasting news around the world people are becoming desensitized to the plight of others. Especially their own species. I'm experiencing this first hand where I live. I have seen your posts to my blogs about my home being burned down...

I was just sitting here relaxing and enjoying a nice quiet Saturday when a squadron of Blackhawk helicopters came screaming over me at treetop level, startling me and practically giving me a heart attack! It's not as bad when...

Toni LoCicero They're probably practicing scaring the living daylights outta people...we have a military base not too far from us (as the crow flies) and all of the sudden we'll have the thunderous booms of weapons and ammunition going off destroying the wonderful serenity...

This phrase is chanted by some while protesting and spewing hate. It is used to deride a president but in so doing are they practicing what they are 'preaching'? True love doesn't harbor hate. It doesn't hate the person but...

Toni LoCicero I discovered long ago that to "hate" a person was futile and only hurt yourself. You can dislike the person's behavior and refuse to accept them into your inner sanctum of friends and acquaintances. But having hate towards a person gives them power in your...

I moved to this city because my family told me they wanted to know them and two of my aunts said they where going to take care of my babies. Long time ago when I was 15 I uesd to take care of my little cousins. They were 4. So...

Toni LoCicero It isn't that you can't trust anybody, its simply the fact that it is easy to promise something but they make the promise without thinking that they will be expected to follow through. The other point is that there is jealousy involved. You had managed to...

Another social experiment, where a guy pretends to be asleep and leaves his phone unguarded beside him. There are tons of thieves who take advantage and when they manage to get it, the owner electric shocks the phone so they get...

Celebrating any holiday has not been a priority for me since before Christmas. I keep my Christmas decorations up through the month of January. Usually, it is because I love Christmas and want to keep celebrating. This year, I...

Being originally from New York and having lots of Italian friends Sunday gravy was always on the stove. But me, being of Irish decent always call it sauce. Either way, it's on the stove and it's starting to smell so good. I come...
