The Twist from a Twisted Sister!

Jack of all trades but Master of????

Jack of all trades but Master of????

Jack of all trades but Master of NONE! Got me thinking of the worlds greatest golfing event The Masters. Every sports journalist says: “The Masters is the best presented event in the history of sports.” Well that is something to live up to for sure.  You can read about how the greens keepers magically get the azaleas to bloom the first week of April or how the ponds are died a specific shade of blue HERE but I wanted to mention a small glitch that started 20 years ago and it all revolves around a missing Pimento Cheese Sandwich Recipe. It turns out that this Cheese...

I'm so disappointed!

I'm so disappointed!

Yes, I am disappointed in myself... Now that we can start to see and touch people outside of our homes I am hearing all the wonderful things people have done during the Covid Lock Down. I won't tell then all to you in case you're in the Slub category like me. One of my friends found weird ingredients and started making amazingly delicious meals. You already know my sad saga of going from Hubby calling me Princess Many Pots to Cardboard Carol. She mentioned that recently she had made a yummy rutabaga puree and that got me thing about all...

So I was left with teaching. The only subject I really excelled at was math so I went to college to be a high school math teacher. There was never a second thought by anyone - Not my folks or guidance counselors offered another idea. So...

Now this is really clever!

Killing two birds with one stone is probably inappropriate when you are talking about recycling but here goes? We are all aware that we make way too much trash. So I was really intrigued by Mariah Reading who canvasses national parks and turns junk into into works of art. You can read the full story HERE but here are a few pics to peak you interest. This last one is a cracked hubcap and is her favorite of all. Isn't this clever? No need to complain about the cost of canvases!This week I really left my comfort zone by taking a reverse decoupage class from the...

It's all about the illusion!

It's all about the illusion!

Do you ever watch Penn & Teller's Fool Us TV Show? It all about illusionist trying to fool these masters. We're hooked on it and if you like magic I bet you will be too. So today, I decided to write about illusions. Then my pal Joanie sent me this amazing video of Kika who is a shapeshifter. Take a look and tell me what you think! Click Pic. Next up: It is hard to believe this photo from 1914 still exist but here it is. It is a photo of 18,000 Soldiers preparing for war at Camp Dodge, Iowa. Isn't it amazing?...
