I am not a big fan of beer. When I drink beer, I have to have a Slim Jim. When I have a Slim Jim, I have to have a beer. Can’t have one without the other. I don’t know why that is….. other than each one of these items is really nasty without the other! I’ve never tried green beer. I often wondered if green beer is simply regular beer that has blue food coloring added to it after it is made, or if the coloring is added during the brewing process.

This year I decided to research it (thanks Google!) and found this delightful article about the history (and making of) green beer on the smithsonian’s own website!

Change Your Clocks for Daylight Savings Time

Two times a year we have to change our clocks here due to daylight savings time. I don’t really mind it that much in the Fall when I get to sleep in for an extra hour. But when it means I have to get up an hour earlier tomorrow morning, I’m not really too excited about it.

Thanks to technology I don’t have to change the clocks on my computer or even on my cable box. However, I still have to go around and manually change all of the rest of the clocks in my home. I have more clocks that I realized. I have a clock in each of my bathrooms, alarm clocks in our bedrooms, the microwave, and a nice wall clock in the living room. I even have one hanging outside on the patio. The digital clocks took no time at all to reset, but the analog clocks required me to take them off the wall and rehang them.

Now that I’ve changed all of the clocks in my home, I have to remember to change the clock in the car before I go to church in the morning.  Clocks, clocks, everywhere sheesh!

Two different brands with the same model names can be confusing

One of the things that confuses me at times is when two different brands of a product decide to make similar products and give them the same model names. I would think that there would be patents and copyrights to prevent these types of things from happening! Case in point – I was watching some YouTube videos about the squier telecaster guitar and saw that the Fender company also has a telecaster guitar. Apparently the squier guitar is made in China, and the Fender is made in the USA.

The squier seems to be less expensive to buy than the Fender. I’ve seen some YouTube videos about the two different ones – one was doing a “Blindfold test” comparing the two. I don’t know which one I would buy if I were in the market for one. They both seem to produce some pretty good music!

Valentines plans for my Valentine

My daughter is the most important thing in the world to me so she’s my Valentine!!! I have a special surprise for her too. We’re going to Chuckie Cheeze for dinner. She absolutely loves that place. There is no sweeter music to a mothers ears than to hear their child laugh and say “Mommy, I sure do love you”. She made me a Valentines card in pre-school and had to give it to me this morning before I dropped her off. She couldn’t wait. I can’t wait to see her face when we pull into the parking lot and she realizes where we are.
