Hmmmm. Built Like a Brick ...... erm...yeah.

Some very....interesting pictures.  ...Not sure whether to say NC17, PG13, NSFW, or safe to look at the middle of a kiddie playground....but the person who made this did some exceptional work!


Great Calamity Kittens!

The best words I think uttered!

The Ultimate Protection!

Extreme Building...or world's smallest island?

I would say that most people complain about having postage stamp size yards, but I think a few people would trade for a view.  But it's not like you can just grab your key fob, click the button to start the car, and go...and running down to the local 7-11 would be a little difficult, especially for 3am munchies.

Etsy made another booboo...and this one isn't too light!

For those of you who have had, or have, an account on Etsy, and care about privacy...you might wish to read this article.  Etsy changed their settings, to allow names to be searchable.  Apparantly, they have changed it back, but do *you* want to be the one who's potential boss, looking through Google at your resume, finds out what kind of glass dildo you bought several years ago?


Guest Jewelry Showcase: Larimar Earrings

I went to traipse Twitter for a couple of minutes, and i just happened to see these.  Aren't these delish?

Freebie! -- Great American Cookie

Now this is a nice treat to wake up to.  Looking here:  Great American Cookie is giving away cookies today.  They are featuring both new Turtle or Red Velvet Brownies, which would be so difficult to figure out which one you would want.

Since I probably won't be one of the lucky ones to stop by one today, I hope one of ya'll can enjoy one on me!


Spotlight Item for Sale

One thing I have tried to do on another blog was show off other people's works.  You are so impressed by their artistry, or at least one item, that you want to show them off.  Other times, you want to give that person a lift, to get going on their store.  There are many reasons to show off an item or two...and in this case, I want to show off an item created by a very good friend of mine.

Becca of Crazy Chain started out making chainmaille type jewelry at the same time I picked up my beading habit again, as something for us to have fun doing, while playing bingo (how DARE those bingo halls make it easier for us to spend our money, and put it in a machine, so we could do other things, also!).  I saw her go through various stages of learning and creation, frustration and AHA! moments....until today, where she makes quality items.  Her items and mine are of different styles, to affect different markets, but she has gotten a great following out here in Las Vegas.

The one item that I wished to show you, is simple, and can be done in so many colors and styles...yet this one is a beautiful copper, that will flash as you walk!

So, stop by, and check out her other wonderful beauties for yourself, and email her with questions concerning size, metals, and  colors.  She will be happy to help you out!

First Torture!

Lost on a rainy night, a nun stumbles across a monastery and requests shelter there. Fortunately, she's just in time for dinner and was treated to the best fish and chips she's ever had.

After dinner, she goes into the kitchen to thank the chefs.

She is met by two brothers, "Hello, I'm Brother Michael, and this is Brother Charles."
‎"I'm very pleased to meet you. I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful dinner. The fish and chips were the best I've ever tasted. Out of curiosity, who cooked what?"

Brother Charles replied, "Well, I'm the fish friar."

She turns to the other brother and says, "Then you must be...?"

"Yes, I'm the chip monk."

First Post, and Random Jabbering

Okay, I have had some blogs, related to specific items.  My jewelry making, assorted crafts, my feelings, and other things.

However, I have just decided to start another one.  This one will cover a range of topics, emotions, etc...at least until I get going on one topic enough to open a blog just for that.

So...what topics am I thinking of?  There will be a variety, to include:
--  Health (illness, meds, mental state...gods, just about everything would fit in THAT topic)
--  Jewelry and Crafts (I make beaded jewelry currently.  I have done cross stitch, latch hook, dreamcatchers, and other things.

--  Magic the Gathering (I just got into it again, after not playing for more than 18 years.  Am currently trying to build decks, and tearing my hair out).
--  Online Money Making (a LOT of it out there is a scam...but there are a few that are true, and work.  Hopefully, I can help you, and you can help me, discover them, work them, and have fun!  I also include surveys in this, too.)
--  Freebies (they are out there...and I have gotten some great ones!  Just gotta find out when/where.
--  Contests (well, there's blogs that are dedicated to giving out items, or reporting them...if I find something I like, I will pass it along)
--  Jokes, LOLs, Funny Pics, etc (I like them...and sometimes find some great ones.  You never know when they come up...but they are fun, sometimes!)
--  Erm....should I shush up now?  I am just writing and writing...and I don't want to lose an audience on the first day.  *laughs*

Mary .... who is just slightly crazy.  *grins*
