It has a somewhat sweet "girly" taste ... but as I said it packs a punch!

It has all of that liquor in it? No, can't do that! I'm not a big drinker to begin with. The one time I had tequila I thought I was going to fall off the floor. I think vodka or Capt Morgan would be my two choices (not together!!).

Thanks for the idea Clark Park!

Some of you know I lost a cat in June and adopted a new one shortly afterward. I promised I would post a picture. I'm still in the learning stage of doing pictures (I just downloaded Windows 10, which I think is better than 8.1). If you want to see a picture of her go to my biography page and there is a nice picture of her on my bed.

And by the way, I originally named her Wendy. When I went to call her, I kept saying Wanda. So her new name is Tessie, I'm doing better with that.

And she has been a real challenge...... VERY active, especially at 4 a.m.

She's a pretty tabby, I love the M above her eyes and the black lips. I have a very shy tabby here named Prudence that got shortened to Prunes by the grandkids.

She may be frisky now with what we call the night willies, but she'll settle down before you know it.

Love the "new" name! Prunes.

Tessie is anything but shy. But thankfully, she is calming down, or I'm just getting used to getting up at 4 a.m.

A frequently seen t- shirt in Baja California has the caption:

One tequila
Two tequila
Three tequila
Floor!

Cute. Then there is the C&W song.... Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off. Can't remember who sings it.

"Generation Wars Will Not Be Permitted!" reads the title of a new sticky posted yesterday by the moderator of the Economics Forum. Over the years I have noticed a lot of generation bashing aimed in all directions in that forum, so I can well understand the sticky. It's quite something how a number of younger people resent us Boomers, thinking that we had it so good and so easy economically speaking and that we ruined the country for them. Some Boomers return the favor, saying that our progeny is spoiled, lazy, and entitled. (The natural response is, "Well, who raised them?") Anyway, that sort of thing grows heated very quickly, as you can imagine. Makes me glad that only sweetness and light prevail here in the Retirement Forum.

The week of intense heat has abated up here and the cool breezes of August have arrived. Anyone thinking about a trip to the Northeast...Sept and Oct are the prime times to come. We have tons of Bed & Breakfasts and Inns, town and country. The ag fairs are starting up now and then the foliage turns. I think it'll be an outstanding year for colors as we've had a lot of rain and humidity. Vermont should be gorgeous.

This is how I post a photo:

1. I have a photo (in this case a picture of some stained glass windows in my center hall) on my internet photo album.

2. I upload the photo on a photo sharing site. I use tinypic.com (please note: I'm not sure if tinypic is accepting any new posters ... but there are dozens of other photo sharing sites).

3. Tinypic.com gives me a code for message boards (such as City-Data.com). The code is http://i43.tinypic.com/jsdl5g and add jpg.

4. I arrow and click on the "insert image" icon right above this message - approx. below the paperclip icon.

5. I type in the code ... and ... voila!



BTW how do you like my 120 year old house???
