Well, I'm really not going to the races but I will be gone for a period of time.  While I am away, please visit my sidebar and look at my Roller Blogs (at bottom of roller blog list click to "show all").  Pick someone to visit that you do not know and make a comment here about something you discovered.  You might also comment on their blog and tell them Granny Annie sent you.  You, my dear friends are a wonderful mixed bag of tricks.  All kinds of politics and religions are represented and a fairly large array of ages.  Consider this assignment a fun exercise and you'll have a while to get it done.  T.T.F.N.   (Ta Ta For Now)

You might also leave a suggestion for a blogger I might enjoy adding to my bag:)

Question Of The Week  3-25-13

What was your biggest accomplishment before you turned 13?

Mine would be singing a duet at church with my best friend in front of the entire congregation. Or maybe it was when I got to bake a cake without any help.  Both accomplishments were followed by a personal sense of pride.

My daughter and granddaughter came here on Sunday.  They stopped to eat at McDonald's on the turnpike. When they ordered, the clerk asked what name.  My daughter said "Michelle".  I had to laugh at the name the employee wrote on the receipt and am sharing it here.  Maybe it's not funny and this is the way some spell Michelle.  Do you know any unusual name spellings?

Question Of The Week 3-18-13

What is your "signature dish"?

My signature dish: You can add or subtract from this meal but it is always called breakfast around here, even when it is for dinner.  Nothing makes our family smile more than to awaken to the smell of bacon cooking.  Grandchildren can special order how they want their eggs cooked and they can choose toast or pancakes and jelly or syrup.  The variations go on and on and so does the happiness in Granny Annie's kitchen. What special dish or meal are you always asked to prepare?

Question Of The Week 03-11-13

If you are sitting in front of your computer and you want to know what time it is, do you look up for a clock or look at your watch before you realize the correct time is on your computer as well at the date?

I did the the other day and laughed when I realized there as a clock on my computer.  Then our home health care worker did the same thing the same day with her computer sitting on her lap.  I realized we may not be alone.

Chicks hatching in incubator
A friend contacted me on Facebook this morning to see if I wanted some baby chicks that are due to hatch on Monday.  It seems that a friend of hers was home schooling her children and was hatching these eggs for a school project.  However part of that learning project did not include arrangements for the chicks after their birth. 

If they were being hatched under a mama hen, I could take the chicks and the hen.  There is no way I can care for chicks right now.  Without a mother hen these babies require a lot of care.  I offered several alternatives for finding homes but I cannot help  worrying about the fate of these newborns. 

We can eat eggs.  We can eat grown chickens.  But somehow it doesn't seem right to watch the wonder of nature as the chicks arrive into the world and then just neglect them. 

Who else thinks there is are some  major lessons to learn here and  believe the home-schooling teacher may have missed the mark?

Remember Elenore Hen with her chicks Chicklet, Mr. Gibson and Rebecca? Chicklet is our main rooster now and you all know about Mr, Gibson turning out to be a nurturing hen like mama Elenore.  Rebecca, sadly, was coyote food.
