I have the pole again. Should I do a Pole Dance? Wait that doesn't sound right. How many out there want to see a 65 yr old, slightly overweight, uncoordinated man do a pole dance?
Today's Question(s):

Last time you cleaned your:
Monitor screen ?
TV screen ?
Inside your car windows ?
I did all three of these about 2 weeks ago

House windows ?
When I'm in the house I live like a hermit. All windows are covered. No need to clean them. Other than the front and rear doors as far as I know they have not been cleaned since i bought the house 10 yrs ago.
Baseboards around the house ?
I must need a maid.


Bonus Question:

Do you remember the "Gong Show" ?

Thanks for coming up with the QOTD Karla, under such difficult circumstances - hope your H can sort out your computer asap!

Today's Question(s):


Last time you cleaned your:
Monitor screen ?
About a week ago
TV screen ?
Did this at the same time as the monitor
Inside your car windows ?
Ummm - who knows, certainly more than a year
House windows ?
I pressure washed some of the outside windows a couple of weeks ago - inside windows get done one room at a time as and when I feel like it. Which isn't very often.
Baseboards around the house ?
Like the inside windows, these get done a room at a time as and when I notice they need doing.


Bonus Question:

Do you remember the "Gong Show" ?
We didn't have your Gong Show here, so I'm not sure what it's about.

Have a productive Tuesday, everyone!

Morning, Karla. Hope you are back to your full keyboard, soon. 8) LFM

Sending you and everyone wishes for a day of working tools, attentive friends, and loving family members.

I never clean my keyboard. I just tip it upside-down over my trash can, rattle it, and call it good.

Never heard of the Gong Show.

Gotta run. God's blessings...

Today's Question(s): Hello friends! What's your other computer's symptoms, Kwak?

Last time you cleaned your:
Monitor screen ? Months ago. It likes the dirt, I guess. It never said anything to me about it anyway.
TV screen ? Ages. It's a big screen LCD so the dirt doesn't show up when you watch it. Cleaning is highly over-rated.
Inside your car windows ? Even longer than anything. They need to be cleaned real bad, so I'll do it when I can't see through them anymore.
House windows ? I taped black plastic garbage bags over them. Now I don't need to clean them ever.
Baseboards around the house ? Put stuff in front of them and they stay beautiful, I guess. I can't see them.


Bonus Question:

Do you remember the "Gong Show" ? Yes!...and that host that looked tremendously like a chimpanzee!


lol Watching the following makes me think I am watching the "Gong Show" ?
1. The Gong Show.
2. The Gong Show reruns.
3. Now I'm stuck.


Today is:
National Strawberry Shortcake Day ! Yum! Love it! But it's gotta be real. There are too many imposters out there!
Flag Day !!! More like Red Flag Day down here.
Blood Type Awareness Day I'm aware that I don't know my blood type.
"Pop Goes the Weasel" Day Ain't nobody poppin' no weasel with me around! I love the weasels!
Pig Callers DayHeeere sooey sooey sooey sooey sooey!
US Army Birthday
Sandpiper Day They are SO much fun to watch, running away from the waves so fast and grabbing all they can find to eat!


Merry Tuesday to you all! Eat something yummy! KarlaKwaks ~ Good luck with the computer and thanks so much for getting the QOTD out to us fans! Great job, as usual!
Everybody stay safe, and please send some rain down to south Florida!
