Well, here it is coming at us like a freight train....CHRISTMAS!! I'm still basking in the glow of my favorite holiday...HALLOWEEN! Christmas is delightful because I never get enough twinkle lights, but I resent a full blown presentation before Thanksgiving! We don't have time to slow down and savor each celebration and their meanings. By New Year's Day, I'm shell-shocked and glad I survived another "holiday season"....wondering if I had fun and barely remembering the details! Maybe better preparation and less bah-humbugging would be in order for a grump like me! HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ONE AND ALL! Try a meatless holiday and let the turkeys have some fun too! art by Janette

Considering all the diseases and disorders crawling around our world these days, I have the perfect Christmas gift! A Full Body Condom! Protects against flu (all types), sexually transmitted diseases (try having sex in this outfit), and actually cures wrinkles (who can see you)!

Comes in only one color, but very effective! Just a suggestion..... happy shopping for the holiday season! HO HO HO!

Another Passing......

I think this is my year to fully realize my "mortality". When we are young, we are going to feel great, have fun, and live forever! After attending seven or eight funerals this year (I've literally lost track), I am understanding the cycles of life and death as never before. Everyone comes to this point...maybe I'm a late bloomer on this score, but it has finally hit home! Today is Wednesday and I will be attending another relative's funeral at 2:00 PM. I can see, at my age, it is part of life and a way for us to prepare for our eventual passing. I've seen so much suffering and death this year...I finally understand the process and truly do not fear the inevitable.
I took these photos on a recent trip to Lake Worth... which is always comforting and peaceful. This post may seem morbid, but I felt the need to express this as I attend one more passing.

Friday the 13th

Happy Friday the 13th.....I see in my crystal ball that many large white birds will soon be sacrificed in ritual feasting. People will gather in clans and gorge themselves with voracious eating until they fall into a stupor lasting many hours. Violent games will appear as visions before their eyes and they will cry out strange words and gesture rudely. After this day has passed, the remains of the feasting will be reluctantly consumed over a period of days and all will return to "normal" until the next gathering and ritual of offerings. A brightly clothed old man will streak across the sky granting wishes and crying out "HO HO HO". And many think Halloween is weird! Very strange indeed!

Here's a curiousity you don't see often. We packed my mother-in-law's things from her assisted living facility into a POD unit for storage. The POD sat in a warehouse for the summer and was recently unpacked. In one of the boxes, we found a mummified apple. How it got there is anyone's guess! It was perfectly perserved....tag and all. I love life's little mysteries! Click on the images to see the lucious crinkles in the fruit!

Almost Born!

I found this enormous wasp nest and on closer inspection, noticed a little leg sticking out of one of the chambers. A wasp tried to break through and didn't make it. Kind of sad.....
These structures always amaze and fascinate me. What engineers these little creatures are!

One of the few good fashion items arriving in the 1980's was Edgar Berebi's distinctive earrings! His bold enamel and gold designs are recognizable and collectible. Berebi is now known more for his museum quality jeweled boxes and home decor with only an occasional jewelry collection. I am reluctantly posting some of my collection (to make room for more!). Check out these recent postings on Just click on the shop site to the right and check out the new items....
