Treasure Hunting at Goodwill!

Posted 03-19-2017 at 11:06 AM by llrivero

I absolutely love going into thrift stores and consignment stores. You never know what you are going to find!

The old saying, One's mans trash is another mans' treasure, is so true! I love giving new life to old pieces and making it into something for me.

We went yesterday and there were so many possibilities!

However, hubby said until I finish what I have going I can't buy more projects. I also love the ability to spend $10.00 on a new outfit...

Why don't chicken breasts have nipples?

Posted 03-09-2017 at 09:39 AM by llrivero

I had to ask? My husband said to me... if chickens are a bird...... why don't they fly? I countered that question with well....... if chickens have breasts....... why don't they have nipples??
Seems like a legitimate question to me........ So, I had to find out!
I found out that some millenia ago.... chickens did INDEED have nipples...... 6 to be exact! YUP, and they produced milk to feed their young. Although helpful to the chicks.......
