Great idea for picnics and camping!

If you enjoy spicy foods try adding some cayenne to the mixture.

That is a very good idea. Thanks.

Two a.m. and I am sitting here cursing. I have two pair of reading glasses. One stays at the computer, and the other in my purse. The one at the computer has been damaged by one of my sons. I don't know which one though. Either a cigarette landed on one of the nose pieces or it was a large spark. The nose piece has melted. It is a good thing I have a second pair.

When I recently got new lens for infinity, I also was supposed to get new reading glasses. They are a tad stronger than what I have now. I decided to wait on it. I am not crazy about the choices I have for frames. The ones that have been damaged are the ones they made an error in the lens. So they had to give me a new pair. Those are the ones in my purse. Those I can read the smallest print there is. The damaged ones I can't but are perfect for the computer. So it looks like I am going to go for a new pair. Then the ones in my purse will come over to the computer and the new glasses will go into my purse. Right now I am not in a friendly mood.

The little pieces that adjust to your nose can be replaced on most eye glasses.

I had to have mine done this summer, no charge.

Check with your eye guy or gal.

Thanks Aunt Bea. I will. I have to get a new pair of reading glasses any way, so I just may toss these and get the new ones. I have the 'script for them. That way I can use my other pair which are better than the burnt ones and use the new ones for my purse to read when I am not at home. I am fortunate in that I don't have to pay anything for any medical problem such as this.

One time we were at a wedding and the lighting was rather low. I like pepper on my food. I was shaking the pepper on and I said "There's no pepper coming out of this." My son replied "Yes there is!" I just couldn't see it! Finally I started sneezing like crazy, so I knew the pepper was there. Lucky for me, I like a lot of pepper.

Salt and Pepper was always in short supply in our work lunchroom. I bought a little salt and pepper shaker at Dicks in the camping section and carried it in my purse. Salt on one side, pepper on the other. You just screwed the cap off the side you wanted. I even took that to the hospital with me because they never give me salt. I know, they have a reason for not giving me salt! But they gave me eggbeaters and I just can't eat them without salt!

Clocks went back last night for the winter (do yours do that?). It's 4.20 in the afternoon and I've had to put the light on in the sitting room! Grr!

4:20!? Time to light up, not lights on.

We turn our clocks back November 2nd.

I have two small plastic containers. One has a mix of salt and pepper, and the other has sugar. Two items I never receive when I am in the hospital. I need the sugar for my coffee. They give me Equal or some other substitute and a phony salt. Both the sugar substitute and salt one leave a metallic taste in my mouth for hours after I eat. I use both at home so I see no reason I shouldn't use them elsewhere.

Thanks Andy. She had me scared there for a second. My computer is the same time as my wall clock, and I know my computer adjusts automatically. I wondered if I missed something somehow.
