  1. Rats. I just missed an opportunity to ask the sister who just called what is ‘handsome cat’ in French. She called searching for French speakers because of our last name. I’m glad I asked her if she is a sister at least.
  2. Huh. I just googled chez. I thought it meant cat all these years. It doesn’t! 😂
  3. I think Beau Chez is a good name for a male cat. It’s fun to say 😊
  4. Yesterday I made my first hydrosol. It is an easy method of using what you have at home to distill herbs and flowers. The water from this process can be used in a variety of ways, and it’s a thrill to have a useful fragrant water in a couple of hours. There are lots of YouTube videos showing how to do it without a still. Anyway, this kept me engaged and entertained for awhile....
  5. Ghastly. It’s 111 currently in So. Ca. I’m seriously worried for my daughters’ chickens.
  6. One of our brothers back in the day had the first name of Judge however. He was given that name when he was born because his father said he looks as sober as a judge! I recall reading somewhere that he secured the release of several brothers being detained by briskly walking in and announcing himself as Judge (Along with his last name). He didn't lie! 😃
  7. This sounds unlikely to me and yet I have a memory at my very first Circuit Assembly in Norco, Ca of the brother announcing from now on, Assemblies were going to begin with a prayer. This was in 1972. Yes? No?
  8. I'm taking a break from discarding books and CD's. I really don't want to dump them in the recycling bin but I'm wondering if the thrift shops will ever reopen. I'm so done living with superfluous possessions. It's 5:42 pm in Calif. and still very hot.
  9. One year ago today there was a big earthquake in Southern Calif. It happened during the loud annual parade going past our house. This year no parade but there were some motorcycles and flag decorated cars doing their own thing taking the same route. Must be kinda anticlimactic for them once they did a loop around. Especially since there were so few people outside. Makes me wonder if last year was the last parade. Hope so.
  10. Oh no! Is there a sturdier rec room in your park?
  11. Thanks to Neil, I had my first ukelele lesson last night. The teacher starts from the very beginning unlike the youtube videos I've found online! If I recall correctly they are accepting 500,000 new students. Just so happened I had a spare uke in my closet!
  12. Can someone please explain how the corona virus is spreading so quickly? It's even in Iceland. Did all these countries have persons who traveled to or from China contracted it then brought it back to where they live?
  13. Jenny, I'm not sure but I think that was a quote from N. Tesla. Someone here will know for sure. Maybe searching for Tesla will turn up something?

How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    I learned the truth from someone who wasn't a Witness at the time. I was moving, so I loaded my last carload and drove over to a workmate's house to tell her goodbye. Eventually she began to tell me a story that went in one ear and out the other. Something caught my attention though and I made her tell me all over again. I left her house with a Truth book and shortly went to the same kingdom hall I'm still in to ask for a study. A friend from high school was there and she became my spiritual mama!. My workmate and I were baptized together.....(her mother was a sister.) Oh, and I was on vacation from work at the time I was moving. When I returned back to work my attitude had flipped so drastically that someone told me "you left for vacation one person and you came back another person!". Yes. Now I was HAPPY! Also, the boyfriend I had at the time told me the girlfriend he had before me also left him to become one of Jehovah's witnesses, haha. That still makes me smile!

My Hobbies & Interests

  • My Interests
    My little grandbabies. Now that I'm babysitting them I have neither the time nor the energy for extras other than meetings, study, and service.
  • My favorite books
    Currently, besides the Bible and our publications, I'm seeing the wisdom of Eccliastes 12:12. I have way too many books and I'm torn between donating them and trying to sell them. Either way they have got to go!
  • My favorite music
    Honestly I'm so out of touch. Muscrat Love came out along with some equally annoying songs, and with the demise of the only two fm stations that played late 60's and early 70's rock with no "bubble gum" I somehow got stuck in that era. Thankfully it doesn't work that way with our Kingdom songs!
  • My favorite quotes
    Don't believe everything you think.
    And:
    If you think you can or if you think you can't, you're right. ( As you can see, I think I can't. Every time I try to contribute to a discussion, I chicken out.)
