Enjoy your day!

Todayís Question(s): Happy Sunday to you, Wormy and everyone!

Local food rocks! Do you get food from any of the following?
~ Nope.

Farmersí Markets

Farm stands
CSA (Community-Supported Agriculture) share
Friend who is a farmer
Your own garden
Other?

And do you get from those sources:

Vegetables?
Herbs?
Fruit?
Mushrooms?
Honey or maple syrup?

Eggs?
Fish?
Other?
~ None of the above. I wish we had some decent markets near here, but nope - we don't. We have nothing but lousy produce markets that are quite nasty. You go there and you feel like you're in a different country.
An unsanitary dump filled with flies.
We used to enjoy terrific produce markets, back before our area was taken from us.


Bonus Question:


Letís talk about shaving! Do you prefer:

Safety razor?
Electric shaver?
Straight razor?
Pulling it out by the roots with wax?
Going shaggy?
~ I only use the disposable Gillette "Good News" razors; the ones without the goofy lubricating strip. I don't go too shaggy much anymore - in fact, I recently shaved off the mustache I had for the last 40 years. I don't miss it at all.


Extra Credit Question:
Yayyy! I will buy some sardines and chicken burritos!

How many coins do you have in your pocket or change purse at this moment?

~ I don't know. Some.

How many of them are pennies?

~ I don't know and I'm not looking because I don't feel like getting up to wash my hands after checking. Money is filthy.


Just for Fun:


Whatís your favorite flavor of jelly bean?

~ I don't know. Probably red or orange...green. I don't eat the things.


*** HappySunday HappyWishes with a side order of miracles for all those that could use them! ***
Thank you Wormy!

First of all, I'd never heard of a ramp, which I read on a Google search is like a small, native American leek.

Today’s Question(s):
Local food rocks! Do you get food from any of the following?
I have bought local honey at the store and have been known to buy produce from the back of a truck.

And do you get from those sources:
Vegetables
Fruit
Honey

Bonus Question:
Let’s talk about shaving! Do you prefer:
Electric shaver - I prefer to leave some skin on my face, though occasionally I use a safety razor for a closer shave.
Going shaggy - occasionally, but am going grey around the muzzle

Extra Credit Question:
How many coins do you have in your pocket or change purse at this moment?
About two dozen on the bedside table
How many of them are pennies?
Less than 5

Just for Fun:
What’s your favorite flavor of jelly bean?
I misread this as jelly and said: Red plum
http://www.smuckers.com/products/ProductDetail.aspx?groupId=1&categoryId=5&flavorId =5

Now that I've read the question correctly: bubble gum flavor jelly beans.

Today is:
April Showers Day

Good morning. I'm glad you enjoyed your Farmer's Market MBW


Local food rocks! Do you get food from any of the following?

Farmers’ Markets A couple of times a year. The one here is very small and it is not so great.
Farm stands We have people set up on the side of the highway on the weekends
CSA (Community-Supported Agriculture) share Nah...I've looked into the but I thought it was very expensive.
Friend who is a farmer
Your own garden
Other? The local grocery store brings in local produce from a neighboring county.
The Farm Supply for honey, molasses, and fresh eggs


And do you get from those sources:
Vegetables?
Herbs?
Fruit?
Mushrooms?
Honey or maple syrup?
Nuts?
Meat? No....I found that the local organic beef here is tough I have a theory about that, lol. Our cows here are mountain cows. I don't think they have enough fat on their bodies to have nice fat and tender meat
Eggs?
Fish?
Other?



Let’s talk about shaving! Do you prefer:
Safety razor? although I think with the more blades they have added the worse they work
Electric shaver?
Straight razor?
Pulling it out by the roots with wax?
Going shaggy?



How many coins do you have in your pocket or change purse at this moment? None in my pockets. I don't know how many in my purse. My purse is in the bedroom and hubby is sleeping. Shhh!!!!


How many of them are pennies?



What’s your favorite flavor of jelly bean?
White ones if they are regular jelly beans. Coffee flavored or the brown ones if they are Jelly Belly's.



Today is:
Earth Day
Girl Scout Leader Appreciation Day

Depends how you define "local."

Indirectly. The supermarket where I shop has locally grown produce and dairy products. The drug store where I occasionally pick up milk sells local milk from a large dairy farm. My definition of "local" is within about 5 county area. If you mean from some non-existent farm in my town, no.


And do you get from those sources:
Vegetables?
Herbs?
Fruit?
Mushrooms?
Honey or maple syrup?
Nuts?
Meat?
Eggs?
Fish?
Other?


No dairy? milk, ice cream, nuts, fruit and infrequently honey.

Throw away plastic razors you buy by the pack.
