There is a flood of blue bells in my garden. I have given them that name. They are ordinary flowers and not many fancy them but I do. I have several such flowers in my garden that enjoy a pride of place. I have noticed only...

It was 71 degrees Fahrenheit (22 C) when I got up this morning. Add a light breeze and you’ve got perfect walking weather. My walking partner headed out of town yesterday and will be gone for a week, so I walked alone. I turned...

fishtiger58 I used to walk and then people in the neighborhood started to disregard the dog rules. They are supposed to be leashed. I hate being chased by dogs I don't know. So I have taken to using my bike. I don't think it's a good an exercise as walking, I was up to 5...

Hey everyone. I hope your day is off to a good start. It is cold and cloudy here at the Jersey Shore. It is currently only 58 degrees F. Not a good day for beachgoers. I left the windows open last night so even the house is...

I have a friend whose granddaughter wants to be a boy. She's a pretty 7-year-old girl, but she likes doing boy things, insists on running around without a shirt on, and recently got her hair cut short, so she looks like a...

fishtiger58 I find it hard to believe or understand how a child that young knows they are really the opposite gender. I was a tomboy when I was a little girl as well. Doesn't mean I want to cut things off and such to become and live the rest of my life as the opposite...

fishtiger58 Oh I would be so grossed out if they fell on me or had them all over the house. There are years not all years in the past 20 or 30 years where the Japanese ladybugs are that bad, just coating everything. Nasty things bit too. These are the orange ladybugs not...
It's getting to be a bit late in the afternoon here...which leads to one of our favorite MyLot questions..What's for supper?

It is the users invariably that are responsible for the sites to fare badly. I need not elaborate on that. If you want to know what a site worth is, just go to sites that give you that information. Many of the bad reviews are...

fishtiger58 I'm glad I don't have to do this sort of thing to make a living because as you say they come and go. I like this better than facebook I canceled my facebook account about 2 years ago. Sick of that site. So on postloop I have to write a blog or have a forum. Or...

It sure is nice to grow veggies without pesticides and no fertilizer needed either since we don't grow our veggies in dirt. The 8 x 16 raised bed is filled with mushroom mulch which came directly from a mushroom farm in the next...

fishtiger58 We do have a veggie garden behind the barn. I think it's about 16 feet by 26 feet and takes forever to weed. But that's what hubby wanted. This year we are growing, carrots, onions, tomatoes, green peppers, two kinds of peas, beans, and for the first time...

The 4th time Queen has shown up (so far) and they may make 2-3 more appearances. Yes, I like Queen...I mean, what is there to NOT like about them? Yes, there's the flamboyant Freddie Mercury singing most of their songs, but each...
