[quote=Karla with a K;11544820]Good morning everyone
Happy Monday

It is a little bit warmer this morning here in NE FL, might have to turn the A/C on later

They say we have some big rains headed our way, so today will be "play in the garden" day. I want to move some plants from their pots to the garden and get some pots of herbs (Basil & Sage) started. Before I can do that I need to ask

[b]Today's Question(s):
Yesterday we asked "I really need to pull everything out of the __________ so it can be sorted and organized?" There were lots of great answers.

So of course today I have to ask

Did any of you get any of your answers done !!!! ? No. Yesterday I cleaned the bathroom and kitchen.

Bonus Question:

How often do you change your hair style ? My hair is naturally curly. I try not to cut it too often as it grows slowly.
or
Have you had the same style for a number of years ? Yes


Extra Credit Question:

When a new neighbor moves in, do you:

Go over and knock on their door to welcome them to the neighborhood ? No. I don't bother them and they don't bother me.

If you should see them out front say "Hi" and introduce yourself ? Yes.

Other ?

Just for Fun:

If there was a "neon Sign" flashing in front of your house, what would it say ? "Last single gal before tollbooth!" Just kidding.It would say, "Beware of dogs."

Happy Monday (no, really!) All!

Today's Question(s):
Yesterday we asked "I really need to pull everything out of every closet in the house so it can be sorted and organized?" There were lots of great answers.

So of course today I have to ask

Did any of you get any of your answers done !!!! ? Are you kidding? We were too busy eating free Veteran's Day food yesterday!

Bonus Question:

How often do you change your hair style ? Ummm Never! (Wife likes my short "G.I. cut" hair. I tried the "combed back" look a few years ago; made me look even more like John Goodman (of the "Roseanne" TV show)
or
Have you had the same style for a number of years ? Yep!


Extra Credit Question:

When a new neighbor moves in, do you:

Go over and knock on their door to welcome them to the neighborhood ?

If you should see them out front say "Hi" and introduce yourself ?

Other ? I provide the "gift of gab" and Mrs. CC usually bakes something!

Just for Fun:

If there was a "neon Sign" flashing in front of your house, what would it say ? Sorry, I draw a blank on this one today. (I'll probably think of something clever tonight at work...)


Today in History:
1821 - 1st U.S. pharmacy college, Philadelphia
1858 - 1st performance of New York Symphony Orchestra
1967 - The first issue of "Rolling Stone" was published. John Lennon was on the cover. Dr. Hook wouldn't appear until a number of years later...
1989 - The 27.9-mile-long Berlin Wall, the symbol of the Cold War that separated East and West Germany for 28 years, was opened. Both East and West German citizens celebrated their freedom as they once again were able to walk freely between the two states. We were at Bitburg Air Base, Germany when it fell. We didn't get to Berlin until several years later, unfortunately. I often wish we'd seen Berlin while the wall was still up. Berlin is an awesome city, wall or no wall. Relatives of our neighbors in Bitburg drove their Trabant car to see them after the wall fell. I was amazed at how small and cheaply-built the Trabant was...

My wife taught at a "Gymnasium" (sorta like a vocational school with more of an academic curriculum) in Chemnitz (formerly "Karl Marx City" when the wall was still up). It was quite an education to see the East Germans transition from Communism to Capitalism... While they had a job security, inexpensive housing and free medical care, it was QUITE a shock having to suddenly compete with more efficient businesses. Unemployment skyrocketed. East Germans were taught to report any suspicious behavior by their neighbors to authorities. We saw what 40 years of neglect can do to buildings and infrastructure. What an eye-opening experience...


Word of the Day:

fungible \FUHN-juh-buhl\ , adjective;
1.Interchangeable.
2.(Law) Freely exchangeable for or replaceable by another of like nature or kind in the satisfaction of an obligation.
noun:
1.
Something that is exchangeable or substitutable. Usually used in the plural.


Today is:
National Scrapple Day
For those that don't know scrapple Scrapple - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Never wanted to try scrapple as a kid. But I recently tried Goetta (a local Cincinnati delicacy made from barley and sausage parts). I really enjoyed it as an omelette!


Parade Day I love a parade!!!
Louie Louie Day
National Farm Week
Neon Sign Day I don't drink beer but really like the neon beer advertising signs in bar windows...

How often do I change hairstyle?:
Not often. Probably about once every 10 years. Usually, all my adult life I have worn it in some version of mid-length (just at or below shoulders with usually some degree of layering. In the eighties and earlie nineties, it was still that length but I wore it frizzy permed as that was the fashion then. Now it is straighter, no perm but still mid-length and layered.

New Neighbors?
I usually try to go over, introduce myself and give them a small welcome gift. This is neighbors in fairly close proximity to me like next door or across the street. If they live way down the block, I might not even know they had moved in.

Neon sign flashing in front of my house?


National Farm Day? I am doing Farmville now on Facebook! My mother grew up on a small cotton farm. We just recently helped her sell it. So we are out of the farm business now.

LOL... Now I'm more confused than ever..

Bonus Question:

or

Ehh.. Not often enough, I tried that green hair color last week, but I couldn't get the spray paint to stay on my head.. I think it was because I forgot to spray the primer first.. I'll go to Lowe's or Home Cheapo next week to get the regular paint.

Extra Credit Question:

When a new neighbor moves in, do you:
Go over and knock on their door to welcome them to the neighborhood ?
I heard that a Victoria's Secret model moved in across the street, so I went to introduce myself.. she turned out to be a retired VS model in her mid 70s... - I'm only kidding, and yes I do welcome them to the neighborhood, in fact a couple with a 2-year old son moved in across the street last month, after the house was on the market since April. I didn't knock on their door, but I talked to the guy when he was out at the community mailboxes with their son.

If you should see them out front, [do you] say "Hi" and introduce yourself ? (added missing words)
I only said hi to them when they were moving into the house last month... and I think that was when they regretted buying the house.. - I'm only kidding.

Just for Fun:

If there was a "neon Sign" flashing in front of your house, what would it say ?
Hmmmm.... It would probably be a neon version of this sign..
