  1. Egad. I really AM getting old. I mixed the names up. Kili is definitely the pretty one, and there was a time when I knew that very well....... 😛
  2. I've had this conversation a couple of times. When I was younger I would have said yes. Now, though ... yeah, dentistry.....
  3. Since I'm here.... why? Just ... why?
  4. Remember when there used to be all different color cars on the road? Now there's like 5. Black, white, gray, red, dark blue. The occasional yellow beetle (which, frankly, I could do without. ) I miss my beautiful teal Mustang, and the family's metallic sea green Buick....
  5. My tortie's a girl. Just sayin'. Burrowing owls.
  6. Yeah, I figured that might be the case, since it's a subscription service. And they seem to have removed it anyway now. 😞
  7. I was a MASSIVE Monkees fan for a long time, but I don't remember any song of theirs that sounded like that..... any hints to the lyrics?
  8. Awww. Dogs can be so caring. Cats, on the other hand.....
  9. As to reasons, I'm guessing it's so the puzzles are hard to solve? The one I enjoyed the most so far started pretty easy; fewer colors further apart on the spectrum. But as it went along the colors become harder to distinguish. There was an all-blue one I simply had to give up on. But I can't say I wasn't challenged! That game was called "I Love Hue Two" (or "Too", I forget). I'm playing the original "I Love Hue" now but it's not as much fun because it's all rectangles. The sequel had several different shapes. Fewer levels though. I really liked it. Have you tried turning up the brightness on your display? That often helps.
  10. Oh yes, chiggers are horrible. I don't have a lawn at this new place, tho, so I don't seem to be troubled by them (yet). But I know what you mean. I was walking past some jewelweed a couple days ago and tried it out on an itchy spot; not particularly sticky after all, but not particularly effective either. Eeek!😞
  11. If any of you are Sirius XM subscribers, I just noticed that Martin hosted an episode of "My Fab Four" on the Beatles channel. I've only listened to the first song so far but I assume there's four of them..... ETA: Holee crud, I just discovered Benedict's on there too, and there's also videos with both of them. I didn't even know Sirius had videos. I have no idea if this will work, since Sirius is a for-fee service but here's a link to one: https://player.siriusxm.com/now-playing If it works and anyone wants it, I will post others.
  12. One flower? They're supposed to be medicinal, not magical. Lol. No, the juice of the flower, enough to coat the itchy spot. They grew prolifically where we lived, we probably just grabbed a handful and crushed them. I know my Mom tried it too but wasn't too impressed, I guess, since it didn't become a go-to solution. The consistency may have been off-putting too; as I recall it was a bit sticky? Interestingly enough (well, interesting to ME ) I'm not very attractive to mosquitos either. People around me will be slapping like crazy and I don't have a single one around me. I found one on my arm yesterday, but it wasn't biting, just sitting there. (I smushed it anyway, for the betterment of mankind.) On the other hand, I get swarmed by noseeums (gnats); they bite me like mad, and their bites are much worse than mosquito bites. Yet a lot of other people don't seem bothered by them. Weird, huh?
  13. Ran across this scary bit of info today............ Plastics can take anywhere from 20 to 500 years to decompose, depending on the material and structure. Additionally, how fast a plastic breaks down depends on sunlight exposure. And.... Plastic can take anywhere from 20 to 500 years to decompose or break down in any environment, including landfill. When plastic decomposes, it breaks down into small pieces that may not be visible to the naked eye, however, these small pieces of plastic will never fully decompose... Thank goodness for repurposing/reusing/recycling, but I do wonder how effective that is.....
