Saturday Sharing

Hello Class,

Another week has gone by and boy is the year going by fast!

I am glad you are all over 18 because the things I learned are a bit odd.

I watch different cooking shows and it was mentioned on one of them that Pineapple can make your semen taste better. Obviously, this was Not a professional show. Now, I cannot and will not have someone test this to see if it’s a fact. But, if you are a man, you may wish to test it with your woman. No, I really do not care to hear about the results.

The 2nd thing I learned refers to the Holocaust. The selections of how many people were allowed to live when the trains arrived was determined every day by how many workers were needed in the camp; despite the fact that a lot of work was useless.. like moving gigantic cement blocks from one end of the camp to the other.

Looking forward to reading about what you have learned this week. It could be about Anything!

Manager, Pillow & Cat

My Park Manager is so annoying!

After having to ask someone to move the mattress from the front next to the house, I had to ask a neighbor today to move it back to the front NOT against the tree (God forbid my one old mattress makes the park look crappier then it already does) because the Junk Guy comes around, tomorrow. I hope he takes the mattress even if it’s laying down!

*I wrote a letter to the Mobile Home Park Management Company telling them about the Manager, here! No, I did not sign it or put a return address except as “A Park Resident”. It may not help, but it can’t hurt.

My Pillow from Fingerhut is on the way. I swear, that thing has traveled more than I have, in the last few days. HA! Mississippi, Texas and now it’s in Arizona. I wish it would get here. It’s been a terrible month for Migraines and I am really praying it helps…along with my new Mattress.. which I seriously Love!

Ending on a note to make you smile!

Most cats catch mice. My Suzy cat sleeps in them

The Last Olympic Games

This is the last Olympic based Blogger Game about Paul at The Captain’s Speech. This time, the questions are True Or False about Him. Once again, I encourage you to check out his blog at ‘Captain’s Speech’ and once again, my answers are in Bold:

1. I used to have two pet fish named “Fish E.” and “Binoculars”.
A) True
B) False

2. I got lost in an Olive Garden (the restaurant).
A) True
B) False

3. I found $5 in a book at the public library.
A) True
B) False

4. I was vacuuming the house at Age 3.
A) True
B) False

5. I fell in a puddle at recess in elementary school.
A) True
B) False

6. I don’t drink coffee.

B) False

10. I normally eat dinner after 7PM.
A) True
B) False

And now, a few questions from Paul, but I might not answer them all…See what I did there?  They are:


Did you have any pets? Have you ever gotten lost? Have you ever found money? Are you a cleaner? When was the last time you fell? Do you drink coffee? Do have any superstitions? What do you like to write with? What cooked vegetables do you like? When do you eat dinner?

My blogs official name is CatsandCoffee and my blogs title is Midlife Cat Lady so, Yes, I have pets. 3 beautiful cats! I had 4 but lost Puma to Liver Failure last February. I had to throw that in because I still miss her! I have always been an animal person having had Dogs, Cats, Hamsters and Fish growing up! I answered the Coffee question also, this way. I can’t start my day without Coffee. I do go to Starbucks once in a while for my Vanilla Latte with two extra pumps Vanilla, but not to often.

Am I a Cleaner? I’ll take the 5th. Lol. Actually, I do clean but I could probably do better. My mother was like model home level clean and I prefer more the Lived-In Look.

I am very klutzy so I Fall a lot. I don’t remember the last time, though.

No, I am not Superstitious. I believe in God and really think Superstition comes from the other side.

I prefer Pens verses Pencils. Especially, Pens with Purple Ink!

When Do I Eat Dinner? – Well, the good thing about being an Adult and living alone is, I eat when I am hungry. Although, I try not to eat a full meal to late and to cut Caffeine off, early.. unless I am out somewhere super late since Caffeine keeps me awake.

Cooked Vegetables? – I love steamed Cauliflower, Frozen (defrosted and cooked obviously) Peas & Carrots, Corn On The Cob, steamed Artichokes…I could probably go on..but it just makes me hungry.

Anyway, I look forward to more Blogger Games in the future and am looking forward to seeing the final scores after this one.

Welcome to todays installment of What I Learned This Week.

Please join the discussion in the Comments

First, I learned if you switch phone plans and phones periodically, you can really save money!  Cricket had a great deal which included a Free Phone at $5.00 a month for the next 6 months with Autopay. This is actually a government program for those who qualify, and the phone is a Cricket Ovation 2 with 5 g. which is really good.

The 2nd thing I learned is about the Tarantula:

The male Tarantula is the one that goes looking for a mate. If he sees a nest and maybe a females leg hanging out of it, he knocks…. Pay close attention to the next part. It’s funny and creepy as hell….The female meets the male at the entrance and if she likes him, she approves. If she doesn’t like him. She eats him! Imagine? Knock..Knock… “Hello,. Oh Hell No, You are totally ugly and have an attitude. But, I am hungry and now you won’t waste anyone else’s time!”…

Oh, but it gets worse..

.So, the female has approved. Now the male…. probably to make sure the female doesn’t change her mind…stuffs his ladies mouth with some webbing..a gag, if you will….Bet, you never knew Tarantulas were kinky! But alas, their not. He has to use his hands/claws/legs? to get his juices/etc and put them inside the woman…How sadly unromantic is that?

I also learned a male Tarantula can live 12-14 years, if he doesn’t get eaten.

I actually learned more about Tarantulas but am starting to get itchy writing this, so I will end, here.

Looking forward to hearing/reading what you learned.

Don Henley – The Heart Of The Matter Lyrics – video Dailymotion

The Confusing Middle has given us the word, ‘Forgiveness’ as this week’s Prompt. Before I get into this:. Why don’t you go visit the site? It’s really cool and thought provoking….I’ll Wait…

Twiddling my thumbs…do do do do, do do do, do do do do,..do,.. do do do do do, thinking weird thoughts, hmmm..do I have time to o…Oh, You’re back? Great! Hope you are a new Follower for them, now.

Okay, So the first song I think of when thinking of Forgiveness is the one above.

But, Forgiveness does not have to be romantic. God say to forgive others 70 x 7, I believe…I could be mistaken. I know there are a lot of 7’s….

Anyway, Forgiveness does not mean forgetting or that the hurt is gone. Emotional and even physical healing takes time. It doesn’t mean you have to let those people back in your life, either. Forgiveness means you can keep going through life without the hardness in your heart or your need for revenge. It means learning about and setting up Boundaries that you decide and will accept.

So, there’s my post on Forgiveness, and if you didn’t like it, Forgive Me for wasting your time.

My turn to share…
Paul says: Tell me about you and food. What do you like to eat? What don’t you like to eat? What foods are overrated? What condiments do you stay away from? Any fun food stories from your past?

Let’s see, I am a Flexitarian which means I am a Vegetarian but I also eat Fish and Chicken, occasionally.  When, I did eat meat, I enjoyed Liver. I have always been a picky eater… partially because I have a rare, metabolic disorder and most food would cause me to hurl…. but as I grew older I have branched out to a lot of different cuisines. I love Italian, but not Tomato Sauce.. although, I do like Tomato Paste. I think the main cuisines I am not overly fond of are Hawaiian and Mexican. Although, there was the time we went to a Luau in Hawaii and I finished my and my parents Poi before they explained what it was. I really couldn’t figure out why they served Chocolate Pudding before dinner. HA!

Anyway, I believe I Bolded my answers.

Check out, The Captains Speech if you want to participate.

Saturday Sharing

Hey, it’s Saturday, and this is the part of my blog where I share what I have learned this week. I hope you will join me and share what you’ve learned, in the comments.

1. A Whale is related to the Hippopotamus. This actually came from a blog I Follow, but I can’t find the person to give credit to, so, if it’s you…Thank You!

Facts from ‘The Gentle Barn’ in California. ‘The Gentle Barn’ is an animal rescue organization that rescues abused farm animals. I totally want to visit! Can we say Bucket List item? They even encourage you to Hug A Cow! Okay, back to things learned:

2. The Turkey is the closest living animal to the Dinosaurs. Gives a whole new perspective to Thanksgiving Dinner now, doesn’t it?

3. The Pig actually has dog like tendencies and likes to have their bellies rubbed. *They are also quite smart and they are clean animals when not playing in the mud…but, I knew that.

4. If you are allergic to Wheat (Me) and you usually take GlutenEase Extra Strength, you need to take 2 pills of GlutenEase Regular verses one of Extra Strength, to get the same results. Yeah, that was a tough life lesson.

5. And finally, Critical Racial Theory is now being taught in schools. It’s pretty much Marxism or reverse Racism teaching about all the terrible things White People did, over time

And, the bell has rung so class is over. See you all next week. Same seats. Keep your eyes and ears open to learn something new.

Sneaky Doctor

So, I went to the Lab today for my Nephrologist and the Phlebotomist (that’s the one who takes blood, for those who don’t know) goes, “Does your insurance usually cover this?”. I’m like, “Yes, I never had a problem, before.”. Then she tells me the doctor added two tests (one a vitamin and one for Iron) that aren’t covered and cost $300 + dollars. I’m like, “Nope. Not paying for those.”. So, I had her delete them from the test. My appointment is on the 5th and if my Nephrologist (Kidney Specialist) says anything, I might just tell her if she wants to pay 300 or whatever dollars, I’ll go back and do it.

Speaking of money, …I was…. I gave a Homeless Bag to a guy who really needed it! Like this guy was totally shaking, and shuffling and in his own world. I don’t know if he was tripping on illegal drugs or what, Hey, maybe he was out of his medicine he can’t afford… it’s not my business. I did say an extra prayer for him, though. It made me feel good to help someone who Really needs it.

See you all tomorrow, and hopefully everyone will think of at least one thing they learned this week, to share with the class.HA! Haven’t decided yet if I will title it, ‘Saturday Share’ or ‘Sharing Saturday’. What sounds better?

15 Minutes

Just read an article about Florida and some people living in some condos…not the ones that came down…were given 15 minutes to get whatever belongings they can out of their homes.  Apparently, the condo has been inspected and deemed unsafe so the management is deciding what to do.

Let’s think about that for a minute!

What could you get out of your house in 15 minutes? You have already gotten yourself and your animals out. If it were me, I would probably be grabbing the first things I can which would hopefully be some of my packed boxes mainly books and collectibles and Puma! I would also try to grab my photo albums and Yearbooks, if I had time to focus. 15 minutes is not a long time!

I guess some people got food, medicine and clothes, one person got their fish tank…no idea if there was anything in it.

But, just like the game, if you had to leave and take only 3 things with you, what would they be…I ask, what would you try to get out if you only had 15 minutes?

Funny Story

I know I have told you a bit about Susy.

Okay, So I probably didn’t “tell” you, I probably wrote it and you read about her…. Anyway, she is my baby and my Trouble Maker.

Today, she “helped” me make the bed, so the sheets can stay wrinkled.

But, here’s the part, I hope makes you smile. Susy is my talker.

As we were ending Bible Study via Zoom….we are on Hebrews, by the way, if you were wondering….Susy approached me just Meowing away as one of the girls asked, “Who wants to do the closing prayer?” Suzy said “Meow” so she goes, “Does the cat want to do the closing prayer?”. Seriously, the timing was perfect! But, Susy was very good and kept quiet during the closing prayer.

I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday.
