About Me

I've been a female working a "man's job" (mechanical engineer), stay at home Mom (6 kids), working Mom (6 kids to put through college), unemployed, underemployed, temporarily employed and now working from home! We live on an old, small farm with 2 dogs and 2 cats in the house, variable number of chickens out in the yard.

Do cooks/bakers need 2 dishwashers?

When my son gets cooking, the dirty bowls and pans start piling up. I suppose the solution is for him to wash up as he goes, which he does do to some extent. But, when there is a big family meal, it seems there is a full load of dishes from the kitchen and another full load from the table.

Offical signs you are now an old fart:

Looking all over for the glasses on top of your head.

After watching a news report, I know that President Obama met with the President of Mexico

and Prime Minister of Canada.

I still don't know the names of the President of Mexico or the Prime Minister of Canada.

More to the point, I don't think the news reader knows their names, either.

I need advice (and vibes) on introducing a new dog (female)

to my older dog (male hound mix) and younger dog (male spitz). Both of my dogs are neutered. I'm dog sitting for a friend who has a bad back and can't take care of her dog for a while.

One of my hens now looks like a rooster -

either that, or someone snuck in and gave me a New Hampshire Red rooster!

It turns out that if the hen's right ovary is damaged, the left ovary takes over, but it is more dedicated to pumping out testosterone than eggs. So my hen looks like a rooster, but she's still acts like a hen.

The bird is still a good looking bird!

More commentary about vaccines:

Tanaquil Le Clercq isn’t a household name, but she still holds a stunning place in ballet history. In the 1950s, “Tanny,” a gorgeous Paris-born American, was muse to the great New York City Ballet choreographer George Balanchine, who’d become her husband, and also to choreographer Jerome Robbins, who remained her friend.

But in 1956, at the age of 27 in the middle of a NYCB European tour, Tanny’s muscles felt stiff. She was struck down by polio, never to walk or dance again. In eerie foreshadowing, Balanchine had cast her as a polio victim in one early ballet; he danced the role of polio.

Gack! OK, lesson learned: do not put frozen food into the crock pot

and turn on the heat. That's how you crack the ceramic liner. The crock pot is fairly new - is it worth it to hunt around for a new liner or should I bite the bullet and get a new crockpot?

Thank you for the hearts!



It's nice to know people are thinking of me!
