Stealing ideas again!

I stole this idea from another blogger, but sorry, I don't know how to link to the site that I got the songs from. :)
The idea is to type in a date of importance to you and you get the no.1 song of that day. Some is interesting. Here is my "hit" list.

Date of my birth: The Old Lamp Lighter; by Sammy Kaye

Date of first marriage: hard Day's Night; by The Beatles

Date of Son's birth: Monday, Monday; by the Mama's and Papa's

Date of daughters birth: We Can Work IT Out: by the Beatles

Date started nursing school: Tie a Yellow Ribbon Around Ole Oak Tree: by Dawn

Date seperated from first husband: I'm Leaving it Up to You: by Dale and Grace

Date met 2nd husband: Rise: by Herb Alpert

Date Married second husband: Family Affair: by Sly and Family Stone

So there you are. I thought it was sort of fun. Geeze, I must have too much time on my hands.

Oh, also decided I want to add to each post a little Food for Thought at the end. (so get used to it, O.K.?)

Food for Thought: The more you complain, the longer God makes you wait.

Fairy Tale

This is the fairy tale that should have been read to us girls when we were little:Once upon a time ~~~~~~~~in a land far away,~~~~~~~~a beautiful, independent,self-assured princess~~~~~~~~happened upon a frog as she satcontemplating ecological issues on the shores of an unpolluted pondin a verdant meadow near her castle.~~~~~~~~The frog hopped into the princess' lapand said: " Elegant Lady,I was once a handsome prince,until an evil witch cast a spell upon me.~~~~~~~~One kiss from you, however,and I will turn backinto the dapper, young prince that I am~~~~~~~~and then, my sweet, we can marry~~~~~~~~and set up housekeeping in your castle~~~~~~~~with my mother,~~~~~~~~where you can prepare my meals,~~~~~~~~clean my clothes, bear my children,~~~~~~~~and forever feel grateful and happy doing so. "~~~~~~~~That night,~~~~~~~~as the princess dined sumptuously~~~~~~~~on lightly sauteed frog legs~~~~~~~~seasoned in a white wine ~~~~~~~and onion cream sauce,~~~~~~~~she chuckled and thought to herself:~~~~~~~~I don't think so.

I am looking for some help out there. I know you are there, I see you lerking around. :)
I am wanting to read the "Classics". I know I have missed out on alot of them over the years and since I didn't take regular college courses I didn't have to read them there. I am trying to compile a list of what would be consider "Must" reads. I have pulled some from my book shelves to start a list. Any input from folks who read me would be appreciated. Tell me what your most Favorite book is. I really don't want to read Shakespear but maybe Mark Twain, Pearl S Buck, and who else? Will look forward to some feedback.

Why do little boys whine?

They are practicing to be men!

Saw 3 pair of Canadian geese on a pond this morning getting ready to make woo-woo. Guess its that time of the year, so they can nest and hatch those early spring babies. So spring is a coming, just hold on. Last week went from a 73 one day for a high to a 40 for a high, so guess it is practicing.

Someone sent me a cute little joke about a little 1 1/2 year old girl who was playing with her tea set and kept bringing her Daddy a cup of "tea" to drink (water) and he would drink it and she would do it again and again, Finally the wife came in and Daddy said watch this, isn't this cute? And the toddler brought another cup of tea. Finally the wife said, "you know the only water in the house that the baby can reach is the toilet" :0)

Had the farm shown again this week, I did make a little wish on that leprechon that was going around on e-mails. You know if you forward it to 10 people your wish will come true in 2 weeks. Well a few days left. LOL

OK enough silliness for one day. I feel good except for the back tweak that I got pulling my boot on the other day. Its the little things that get you down isn't it?

How do you keep your husband from reading your e-mail?

Rename the mail folder "Instruction Manual."

Hey I have a terrific chili receipt to share, Have made it twice now and it is really GOOD!

It is Bush's Best Three Bean Chili: Makes a really big pot of chili, but I freeze the extra.

2 cans Kidney Beans
2 cans Pinto Beans
2 cans Black Beans
2 lbs. lean ground beef
1 small yellow onion, chopped. (I use a large one)
1 small green pepper, chopped
1 can (14 1/2 oz.) diced tomatoes
3 tsp. chili powder (I use 4 to 5)
1 1/2 tsp. salt (I omit this)
1 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp ground pepper
1/2 tsp. cumin ( I use 1 tsp, as I really like cumin)
1 can (6oz) tomato paste
I add 1 lg. can of tomato sauce, because it is so thick
Cook beef, onion and green pepper til meat is browned. Drain excess grease. Ad all the rest and let simmer for 20 min. ( I like to simmer for like an hour at least) Also I used our ground elk meat and it is great.

So there is my cold weather idea. Nothing like a nice bowl of chili, served with sour cream, or I like grated cheddar cheese, and hubby likes diced green onions on his.

Oh, and today is my birthday, just thought I would mention that :0)
