hiroshima then……..hiroshima now…

We all know that  Hiroshima and  Nagasaki were destroyed in August 1945 after the explosion of atomic bombs.
However, we know little about the progress made by the people of that land  during the past 68 years.

Here is Hiroshima in 1945…

Now let’s look at Hiroshima today……..can you spot the differences?

recipe for … ice?

Ok, normally I like to keep you all to myself…..however, today we’re going on a field trip.

There is a GREAT recipe on Food.com that I thought you might be interested in making, even if you haven’t mastered the joy of cooking. 

Yes, it’s for ice.  

Apparently, Chrissie G has some relatives of mine that do NOT know how to replace ice cube trays (these are also the family members that drop their dirty clothes next to the hamper, and the adorable ones that would rather place the toilet paper on TOP of the holder)

Thankfully, we have kept up with current times and have an ice maker now…. but oh, but I remember those days all too well.

So skip over with me to THIS SITE and click on RATINGS AND REVIEWS to read all the hilarious comments that go with this very important recipe!

Don’t worry, you don’t have to sign in to read all the reviews.  This is really funny, and I promise you will laugh!

Print out the recipe for those times when unexpected guests come over.  It will be a hit!!

Enjoy and don’t forget to come back and let me know what you think!!

fireworks in CA…

We just got back from a COOL  (in more ways than one) vacay in lovely San Diego!  Yep, we were there for the big 15 second fireworks show!  We thought it was a great beginning….only to find out that it was  also the end!  Oh well…..

The temperature was unbearable in Arizona, and with the fourth of July being a holiday….and the fifth of July being a birthday… we loaded up a few of our favorite things…

And drove to Coronado Island!!!  All of our grown kids, and two grandkids got to share the weekend with us!  And I must tell you….the youngest is 27 and the oldest is 33 years……..and they are absolutely hysterical.  We spent the weekend laughing and enjoying the weather with most of it being around the pool!!

Hello, girls!!!! 

Later the girls wanted mama to take them to the water….to play their guitars, of course..

   

These are true soul surfers…..(just ask them)

So while the fireworks show was a BUST……..the weekend with the family was absolutely PRICELESS!!!!
