Galapagos!

I’ve been watching a ‘marathon’ on the National Geographic Channel this afternoon and and tonight about the Galapagos Islands.  VERY interesting!!  I love these kinds of shows and always seem to learn something.  This was a GREAT one!!  Alrthough if I see one more Iguana I’m going to scream…. right after I barf!  I loved the Giant Tortoises!  They looked just like Bert and when they were mating, they made that same sound that he did when he had his way with the planter!!  lol  So if you get Nat Geo, the next time this program comes on, you should check it out.  It certainly deserves an Emmy nomination…. or something!
 
Looks as if I got my Media Player straightened out by upgrading from WMP7 to 11.  Very different but works perfectly.  If you use it on your computer I suggest getting the upgrade, and it’s free!
 
I got a little yardwork done today but very little.  It was 85 DEGREES here today!!!!!!  Almost had to turn the A/C on!  But by Wednesday, back to the 60’s and more showers!  YAY!!!  The icemaker is working good!  In fact, too good!  Had to turn it off today!!  The new circuit breakers are also working well and I think next week we will get our new windows.  Also next week, I get the final version of my dentures!!!!
 
I received a letter today from a company called Life Line Screening (www.lifescreening.com) and they will be at our local hospital on march 6.  They screen for Stroke/Carotid Artey, Heart Rhythm, Abnormal Aortic Aneurysm and Peripheral Arterial Disease.  It cost $139, you only have to remove your shoes and socks and it takes under an hour.  So on Monday I’m making my appointant!  Also for $10 more the will scan for Osteoporosis.  I’m thinking it’s a good idea.
 
Well, that’s all I got folks, except to say that the next song I HOPE to put up is for my friend Beth Marie.  It’s an oldie!!  Take care and have a wonderful Sunday!

    Hmm I didnt know you could upgrade that? Interesting..anyway.. whew.. hard for you to believe we are in a
    type of blizzard situation out East ways here today. The snow is blowing sideways and the wind chill is 20 BELOW thank YOU.. I am not budging from my warm house! I pray the heat stays on!  FOR me. I am watching NASCAR!!
    WOW that was sure exciting last night at the shootout!  I wish they would just BAN mr. Kurt Busch PERMANENTLY!
    before he kills someone else!  Sheesh..  take care.. stay cool..ya want I should send you some SNOW!!?? LOL  : )

    I want to feel 85 degrees! The closest I get is sitting by my window and letting the sun hit me this way! I walk outside, and I’m freezing again!

    85??? 85???? @#$%^&*+))(&^^&%^$%#@#
    I think I’m gonna kick your ass, just for telling me that! lol BIG HUGS, Steph

  10. MizAngie says:

    Gee, it’s only 75-80 here! If you cool off, though, that means I will a few days later. The West Coast blowjobs determine our weather. I mean, your weather blows. Er, I mean our weather fronts usually blow in from the West/Northwest. Whew.

  11. Ann says:

    Wow – and I was happy because it was actually above freezing today!  Sheesh.  Your tortoise comment made me laugh, because when Kiki was about 4 or 5, we went to the zoo and these giant ones were mating… I’ve never heard such weird, slow bellows!!  Kiki kept asking "what are they doing, mommy?" and all I could do was giggle (yeah, I’m pretty mature.  lol.)
