Awwww... I think it's great that you have the memories and wrap the box of chocolate covered cherries with those memories in place. GREAT story, Linda!

I really like chocolate covered cherries, too.... but I don't have a great memory with them. Funny thing you should mention them today... just this morning my DS asked if I'd ever tried chocolte covered blueberries (lie the cherries only blueberries instead). I said I hadn't; he hasn't either. But he said he would buy a box and bring them when he comes for Christmas and we'll try them together.... so we'll create that memory.

I like lilacs, too... they smell so wonderful!

Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us that sometimes DRASTIC measures are helpful!


A school teacher injured his back and had to wear a plaster cast around the upper part of his body. It fit under his shirt and was not noticeable at all.

On the first day of the term, still with the cast under his shirt, he found himself assigned to the toughest students in school. Walking confidently into the rowdy classroom, he opened the window as wide as possible and then busied himself with desk work.

When a strong breeze made his tie flap, he took the desk stapler and stapled the tie to his chest.

Discipline was not a problem from that day forth!

Linda, I don't like blueberries either... but I figure with all the chocolate and sugar and such, they won't be bad. LOL!

Linda, I ordered mine from a store on ebay - unmounted rubber stamps, personalized rubber stamps items in loongchai74 store on eBay!

They are reasonably priced. Not the best stamps, but they serve my purpose well and because they are economical, I could purchase 2-3 different ones, so that's what I did.

I'm not sure, but I thought Stampin' UP also had a stamp that you can customize. Is that true?

Duh... I just looked at my SU catalog. They do have two, but they say Stampin' UP on them as well as a place to put your name. They also have an option for a large text only stamp -1 or 2 lines, up to 16 characters. So you could put

Stamped by
Linda

or something similar.

It is $15.95 for a 2-line stamp

SU also has a monogram stamp

It has the monogram and then you add 1 line of text with up to 32 characters so you could put hand stamped by Linda or something similar. It is $16.95.

Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us that a little exercise is good for all of us!


Two gas company servicemen, a senior training supervisor and a young trainee, were out checking meters in a suburban neighborhood. They parked their truck the end of the alley and worked their way to the other end. At the last house, a woman looking out her kitchen window watched the two men as they checked her gas meter. Finishing the meter check, the senior supervisor challenged his younger co-worker to a foot race down the alley back to the truck to prove that an older guy could outrun a younger one.

As they came running up to the truck, they realized the lady from that last house was huffing and puffing right behind them. They stopped and asked her what was wrong.

Gasping for breath, she replied, "When I saw two men from the gas company running as hard as you two were, I figured I'd better run too!"

Hello and welcome! you've got 2 spots thanks for joining us. I started this when I thought I had lost my most loved little recipe book from a chocolate festival several years ago. I did find it but I hope this gives each of you the chance to create a little "Chocolate Recipe book" of your own! Valentines is certainly one day for chocolate but there are so many more!

G'Morning Friends!

(I'm sorry... I can't seem to bring myself to say "good" with all the sadness I feel for those families in CT.)
I've cried a bucket of tears - and then some. So very tragic and heart-wrenchingly sad. My heart is broken!


(((HUGE HUGS))) for everyone of you!

... ... ... ...

Today is Bill of Rights Day,
National Lemon Cupcake Day,
National Firefighters Day,
and Cat Herders Day.


Enjoy your holiday of choice today!

Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us to be good neighbors!


A couple of real do-it-your-selfers were sprucing up their basement. They picked out bright orange shag carpeting and then spread it over our lawn in order to measure and cut it. The neighbors watched curiously. After a while, the teenage daughter of one neighbor spoke up. "Our family has taken a vote," she said. "I've been elected to tell you that if we have any voice in this, we would prefer you leave your lawn its natural color."

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us NOT to get carried away at Christmas!


Christmas At Martha's

Dear Friend

This perfectly delightful note is being sent in paper I made myself to tell you what I have been up to. Since it snowed last night, I got up early and made a sled with old barn wood and a glue gun. I hand-painted it in gold leaf, got out my loom, and made a blanket in peach and mauve's. Then to make the sled complete, I made a white horse to pull it from DNA that I just had sitting around in my craft room.

By then, it was time to start making the place mats and napkins for my 20 breakfast guests. I'm serving the old standard Stewart twelve-course breakfast, but I'll let you in on a little secret: I didn't have time to make the table and chairs this morning, so I used the ones I had on hand.

Before I moved the table into the dining room, I decided to add just a touch of the holidays. So, I repainted the room in pinks and stenciled gold stars on the ceiling. Then, while the homemade bread was rising, I took antique candle molds and made the dishes (exactly the same shade of pink) to use for breakfast. These were made from Hungarian clay, which you can get in almost any neighborhood Hungarian craft store.

Well, I must run. I need to finish the buttonholes on the dress I'm wearing for breakfast. I'll get out the sled and drive this note to the post office as soon as the glue dries on the envelope I'll be making. Hope my breakfast guests don't stay too long. I have 40,000 cranberries to string with bay leaves before my speaking engagement at noon. It's a good thing.

Your Friend, Martha Stewart

P.S. When I made the ribbon for this typewriter, I used 1/8-inch gold gauze. I soaked the gauze in a mixture of white grapes and blackberries which I grew, picked and crushed last week just for fun.

I used to buy them, (chocolate covered cherries) for my Mother in Law. She ate them and drank beer. I miss her terribly.
BTW, I love chocolate and am an adventurous eater, will try anything. Mole is nasty unless you find someone who really knows how it is done. None of the really good places I have been to know how.

A state trooper stopped a 95 year old woman on Interstate 20, and noticed as he was checking her drivers license, that she had a concealed carry permit. He said... “Got any guns with you ma'am?”

She said, “Yes, I do – a 45 Smith & Wesson in the glove compartment, a 357 magnum in the console and a 38 special in my purse.”

The trooper asked, “LADY what are you afraid of” to which she replied.... “NOT A THING!”

Welcome Lake Mama..... chocolate covered cherries are one of my DD's favorites. I need to buy a box since she'll be home in a few days.

Today is Games Day,
Mudd Day,
International Human Solidarity Day,
National Re-Gifting Day,
and Dot Your I’s with a Smile Day.


Enjoy your holiday of choice today!



Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
with a WARNING to watch those Christmas calories!




Chocolate Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas and all round my hips
Were Fannie May candies that sneaked past my lips.
Fudge brownies were stored in the freezer with care,
In hopes that my thighs would forget they were there.

While Mama in her girdle and I in chin straps
Had just settled down to sugar-borne naps.
When out in the pantry there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter.

Away to the kitchen I flew like a flash,
Tore open the icebox then threw up the sash.
The marshmallow look of the new-fallen snow
Sent thoughts of a binge to my body below.

When what to my wandering eyes should appear:
A marzipan Santa with eight chocolate reindeer!
That huge chunk of candy so luscious and slick
I knew in a second that I'd wind up sick.

The sweet-coated Santa, those sugared reindeer,
I closed my eyes tightly but still I could hear;
On Pritzker, on Stillman, on weak one, on TOPS
A Weight Watcher dropout from sugar detox.

From the top of the scales to the top of the hall
Now dash away pounds; now dash away all.
Dressed up in Lane Bryant from my head to nightdress
My clothes were all bulging from too much excess.

My droll little mouth and my round little belly
They shook when I laughed like a bowl full of jelly.
I spoke not a word but went straight to my work
Ate all of the candy then turned with a jerk.

And laying a finger beside my heartburn
Gave a quick nod toward the bedroom I turned.
I eased into bed, to the heavens I cry
If temptation's removed I'll get thin by and by.

And I mumbled again as I turned for the night
"In the morning I'll starve...
'til I take that first bite!"

Haven't done a recipe swap in ages so I will start again by asking for two spots. If I get ambitious, I'll ask for more once I complete them.

Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
with a groan because Bill Paying Stinks!


A corporate executive received a monthly bill from the law firm that was handling a big case for his company. It included hourly billing for conferences, research, phone calls, fax, photocopying, and everything but lunch hours. Unhappy as he was, the executive knew that the company would have to pay for each of these services.

Then he noticed one item buried in the middle of the list: "For crossing the street to talk to you, then discovering it wasn't you at all - $125."





Hugs!

with some New Year's Eve Wisdom!


On New Year's Eve, Daniel was in no shape to drive, so he sensibly left his van in the car park and walked home. As he was wobbling along, he was stopped by a policeman. 'What are you doing out here at four o'clock in the morning?' asked the police officer.


'I'm on my way to a lecture,' answered Roger.


'And who on earth, in their right mind, is going to give a lecture at this time on New Year's Eve?' enquired the constable sarcastically.


'My wife,' slurred Daniel grimly.





Hugs!

If cats (and/or cat-lovers) wore t-shirts, here is what they might say:

"Purrfection cannot be improved"

"If you don't like my attitude, you should see my cat"

"Menopaws, This is the hottest I've been in years."

"Take my advice. I'm not using it."

"I'd like to help you out. Which way did you come in?"

"Cats know how we feel. They don't care, but they know."

"Dogs have owners. Cats have staff."

"Thousands of years ago, cats were worshiped as gods. They have never forgotten this."

I have solved the mystery to the myan calendar!! read on:

Back in 1000 B.C. the South Mexico Olmec tribe ate chocolate all the time. The Mayans drank liquid chocolate during all kinds of occasions, like engagements, weddings, baptisms, and even funerals. In fact, Cacao Beans were so valued in ancient Mexico that the Maya, and later Toltec and Aztec civilizations used them as a unit of calculation and currency to purchase small household items and pay for other services. A large tomato was worth one bean, a rabbit was ten beans, and a slave was a hundred beans. Taxes levied against conquered tribes were also paid in Cacao beans by sacks, each containing about 24000 beans. The Mayans and Aztecs believed that Cacao Beans came from paradise and would bring wisdom and power to anyone eating them. The Aztecs mixed chocolate with chilies, cornmeal, and hallucinogenic mushrooms that made into a bitter brew.

it was the chocolate covered hallucinogenic mushrooms!!

good morning all. We need to all do our share this comming year to keep stats correct ")

Switzerland is one of the top countries when it comes to chocolate consumption. The Swiss eat roughly 22 lbs of chocolate per person per year. The U.S. consumes about 11 lbs per person each year.

so did you eat your 11 lbs per person last year? if not good news you can add it to this years quota!!!

Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
with a WARNING to be Careful What You Say!



One night, Tim was walking home when, all of a sudden, a thief jumped on him. Tim and the thief were began to wrestle. They rolled about on the ground and Tim put up a tremendous fight. However, the thief managed to get the better of him and pinned him to the ground.

The thief then went through Tim's pockets and searched him. All the thief could find on Tim was 25 cents. The thief was so surprised at this that he asked Tim why he had bothered to fight so hard for 25 cents.

"Was that all you wanted?" Tim replied, "I thought you were after the five hundred dollars I've got in my shoe!"






Hugs!
