SUNDAY SNIPPET

Dear blog: Okay blog, this first section is a bit out of the ordinary, and the actual newspaper 'snippet' will be last today. But, before I cleaned out my email account, I wanted to double check the spam email folder before deleting its contents. Mind you blog, this time I didn't find anything worth moving to my inbox folder, but boy howdy, was I aghast at the subject headings of some of the atrocious mailings!! And I ask you blog, why on earth would anyone, who has been online long enough, care to open such nonsense. Here is an example of some of the subjects found in my spam folder: Sender - InboxOffer Subject - The doggy steps solution for smaller breeds (say what? I've heard of taking baby steps, but teaching us to consider training our toy breed-type dogs to take doggy steps is a bit off color isn't it? Have you watched your smaller breed and how gigantic their steps are? Especially if you're out walking your dog to do his business ...in the rain ?!

They make me laugh --- What do you get if you cross a Cocker Spaniel with a Poodle and a rooster? A cockapoodledoo! <><><> Some of the Reasons Why People Don't Exercise .....but I continually exercise myself, anyway... 1. My grandmother started walking five miles a day when she was 60. She's 97 now and we don't know where she is! 2. I joined a health club last year, spent about $400. Haven't lost a pound. Apparently you have to show up. 3. I have to exercise in the morning before my brain figures out what I'm doing. 4. If we were meant to touch our toes, they would have grown in further up our body. 5. I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me. 6. Is the advantage of exercising every day that you die healthier? 7. If you are going to try cross-country skiing, start with a very small country. 8. I don't jog because it makes the ice jump right out of my soda. <><><> A high school st

I mean, some of my friends think they know me well....but they never know what I'm really thinking or yearning for in

Appetizer How do you usually celebrate on New Year's Eve? Nothing special....it's just another day for us two. We do have a traditional meal, around 11p.m. tho--by the time it's complete, it's a new year. It's always grilled steak, potato, salad, wine, and Eurpoean Crusty Bread. Soup Name one thing unexpected that happened to you in 2006. I'm thinking hard on this...but I can't come up with anything! Well, I got a good report from my doctor that was unexpected...so, that could be one! I was given good news as far as I'm concerned...that I was doing so well that I could now begin having just YEARLY visits with her! Instead of every 4 months! Ya, that was a good unexpected!! Salad Where was your favorite place that you visited in 2006? Actually, the best place we've been to this past year is a frequent return trip! I love the little quaint fishing village of Rockport, Texas. It's on the shore, quiet, and quite antiquated along with a friend

I'm a movie buff! My room is filled with GWTW photos, pictures, books, posters and knick-knacks. Lately, hubby spots something that has Scarlet O'Hara or Rhett Butler on or in it, and he takes out his plastic money and .... Here's my newest figurine I got from hubby for Christmas! I also like Mr. Depp's ability to act in so many different roles and carry it off so believably. So, he's my second choice. But I have POTC stuff in my office and around the house. Mainly the action figures and posters. I rec'd as a Christmas gift the new 'talking' Captain Sparrow...(if you've seen the POTC II movie, he's a cannibal chief in one part---) And here he is: as a cannibal! [photos deleted for faster loading and storage space] (psssst, funny thing here!---I have two posters in my office of J.D. and hanging above the computer's monitor. Well, guess what?
