I always imagined what it would feel like...
And I wondered if it was ever going to happen.

Not so long ago I met some one that makes me smile and laugh. He also temps me with pictures of homemade pies and sexy pictures of him in his canoe named Beaver.

My favorite blogger from Massachusetts gave me something that no other has given me.
He is Tantalizing, Handsome, One made for Arousing Stimulation

Yep, that is right...Tom over at Toms' Hideaway has given me a Schmooze Award...Thanks Tom, you are a wonderful schmoozer and I love schmoozin’ with you!

Now I am supposed to link 5 others and bestow on them the Power of Schmooze award...and I will, but do not feel obligated to do this on your blogs, it's not required, but please feel free to put the power of schmooze badge on your blog if you want too...

I hereby award The Blogging Community Involvement Award to;

Lyndon over at Lifeslackers. Lyndon was one of the first persons to comment on my site and reach out to me in friendship. His posts are filled with trivia, the Daily Challenge and funny videos. Go on over to his site and join the fun!

Rav’N over at Rav’Ns Realm. This woman is one smart cookie; she is a molecular biologist that lives in Australia. She is a poet, loves comics, watching drifting cars and computer games. I also love her rants. =0)

As for the next three I will be contacting them privately because they do not want to be linked in the public eye for saftey reasons.


It is my belief that men want honest communication and it is a top priority within any relationship. Men want a woman who answers questions honestly instead of with silence. They also want a woman who confidently asks for her wants and needs to be met. Men want a woman who can see the truth, and tell it like it is while communicating with kindness. Finally, men want a woman who can communicate without being too critical, who cares about preserving his and her dignity. I’m just sayin...


A history lesson...

Play-Doh modeling compound started out as wallpaper cleaner. Joe McVicker learned from a teacher that kids usually found modeling clay too hard to manipulate. Discovering that the squishy cleaning product he manufactured could substitute, McVicker shipped some to the school. After teachers and kids raved, he offered to supply the product to all Cincinnati schools. More rave reviews followed. McVicker showcased the modeling clay at a national education convention in 1955, and word spread to Macy's and Marshall Field's.

By 1956, the wallpaper cleaner had become Play-Doh. A year later, the manufacturer offered a softer Play-Doh in primary colors. Kids mixed these to make other colors, ending inevitably in brown. Captain Kangaroo endorsed Play-Doh, and so did Miss Frances from Ding Dong School. Play-Doh Pete appeared on product cans in 1960. The Fun Factory let kids extrude the material into interesting shapes, making mock hair, colorful spaghetti, and pretend ice cream that wouldn't melt. In the 1980s, Play-Doh expanded its palette to eight colors. Later versions sparkled with glitter, glowed in the dark, or smelled like shaving cream. Recent estimates say that kids have played with 700 million pounds of Play-Doh.

For those inquiring minds...

On Wednesday I had a date with C. and I asked for suggestions on what to bring for dessert. I loved your answers in the comment section as well as those sent by email. Some of you have very naughty minds; it was only our second official date! ;0) After much consideration I decided on Creme Brulee. It is the ultimate in taste, texture and decadence. Yummy!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Boz Scaggs - Lido Shuffle

I have another date with C. tonight. He is making me dinner at his place, then we are off to see Boz Scaggs in concert. Wahoo! The last time I saw him in concert was back in 1977.

Hmm, now the question is what shall I provide for dessert? ;0)
