true computer confessions

Last night around 11 pm, Curtis turned out the light.  I rolled over, gave him a kiss on the cheek and said, "I love my computer". 

Why Am I A Fan of Daniel Hannan?

I like people who make sense and don't skirt this issues, which is extremely rare in our political world. Check him out telling his Prime Minister, Gordon Brown how it is or should be! By the way, this is currently one of hottest YouTubers! Enjoy and become enlightened. One last question--Daniel, can you move to America?

PS. I love how the British say figure!

Cone Update!

For those bloggers who read the below post about the cone zone, I have a little announcement to make.  I now am in possession of my very own cone.  Now this is not your ordinary plastic dirty orange old highway cone.  It is bright orange, but my dear sweet husband surprised me with a sturdy retractable cone.  It was in the driveway when I came home and he ran out to remove it as I came in the drive.  I feel so special (can I use the word special?)!

Catastrophic Cooking With Caryn

Yesterday I made burritos.  I started with 1/2 lb of ground beef.  I rarely cook with the stuff, and maybe this is why.  After browning, I added what I thought was taco seasoning (Costco size) and to my surprise and utter dismay cinnamon was applied (Costco size). I knew better than to try to wash the ground beef  and reuse, because this is not the first time I have made the mistake and it didn't clean out the taste.  Next I warmed up some green chilies in the microwave.  I would add half the chilies to the black beans and use the rest as garnish.  Taking them out of the microwave, I turned and it just flew out of my...chilies on the cupboards, floor and across my legs.  I almost (should've) gave up, but no.  I started in on the tortillas.  These are special delectable Costco tortillas.  Fortunately, I had a lot of them.  After cooking about 5 of these lovely rounds, I smelled something burning.  Funny??  Nothing seems to be burning.  Except, wait,  I have placed the plate with cooked tortillas on the adjacent, never turned off, burner.  Did you know that a plate, when it gets to a certain degree will explode?  I learned this yesterday cooking burritos.

Enjoying Life Again

Now that Mom is gone, Dad is renewing his love for exploration of nature and capturing it on his top of the line camera!  Friday we hiked around the Nimbus Dam area.  We climbed to the top of a small, but steep hill, listening to the wild turkeys.   This photo was the view we found there.  Do I really need to travel far and wide to live, learn and grow?  The few hour we spent were filled beauty and wonder.  Dad has a gift of finding what to some may otherwise seem insignificant, but on closer look that there bird's nest is amazing and worth a second visit.

Why I would not make a good Fascist Dictator

So I'm kinda new on facebook. But I got this email saying somebody tagged me in a photo. I go to the photo. It is so very horrible, and it is out there. I really don't like to get my picture taken. I prefer to view photos of others. This is what stops me from become a fascist dictator. Have you noticed how they love pictures of themselves? They especially love the statue form of themselves. Their countrymen are forced to display these in their homes, schools and all public areas. Then they destroy the churches, in case anybody thinks of looking at a picture/statue of any other revered being. They don't seem to care about anybody else's facebook photos. Of course, these are not candid shots. They are calculated poses. The figures always look very stern, ready for genocide. A photo like this may be useful for dictatorship purposes, but I don't want people to remember me mad, ugly, in uniform and hanging from the top of a building on a 20 foot pole.
