Shopping Around the World – REMINDER

Shopping Around the World is so much fun to see the various prices around the world!

Me and my pal Fozzie started Shopping Around the World in April.  This has become a huge hit and we all want to know if we are paying more or less than everyone else – snorts.  We are going to do it again this month on Wednesday, December 31st.


Do a posting on your blog linked back to mine.  That way we can keep track of all of the different prices.  It should be interesting to see the differences between.  Mark your calendar so you can do a posting with us.

Items to price this month:

  • Soup – It is that time of the year here in the States for soup – shivers.  What is your favorite can/container to buy and how much is it?
  • Christmas Trees – Since it’s Christmas time, how much are real trees going for in your area?
  • Cold Medicine – Tis the season to get sick 🙂 Mom has had to buy some for daddy lately and she couldn’t believe the price of it – OMP!  List what kind you normally keep on hand/price.
  • Hot Drink – During the cold season, what do you keep on hand for something hot – whether it’s coffee, tea, hot chocolate, hot toddy, etc.  Name what you have/price
  • Random Item of your choice.

Come join the fun of Shopping Around the World – mark your calendars

Wednesday, December 31st.

Thank you very much for your ideas for the monthly listing. If you have any more suggestions to be added to my on-going list, please email them to me.

2014 in Review

NOTE my friends – *THIS* couldn’t happen without YOU!  Thank you so much for a great year.  Here’s a toast for a fabulous 2015 to come!!

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 47,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 17 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Bacon’s Show and Tell

This month for Bacon’s Show and Tell  we are highlighting that one toy that you got as a child that you absolutely HATED – snorts. Remember to link your blogs to this one so we can all share.

Today, I’m letting mommy discuss the one toy that she got that she absolutely hated, despised, couldn’t stand and didn’t want – snorts.  Did you get all of that?

Well, without further ado – take away sweet mommy of mine.  Your story is safe here with all of my friends.


Thanks sweet Bacon of mine.  When I was little I was what they referred to as a ‘tomboy’.  No Bacon, I’m not talking about a boy named Tom.  I’m talking a girl who likes to do boy stuff, like ride bikes, climb trees, play Cowboy and Indians and such.  Well, I did not like dolls at that stage in my life – I wanted to run with the boys.

Cabbage Patch dolls came out in the 1980′s and were a HUGE hit.  I was turning 11 that year and my mother – of all things possible in the world – got me a red haired Cabbage Patch doll – eeww puke – LOL.   It looked very similar to this picture of a Cabbage Patch Doll.  When I say I hated that doll, it would be an understatement.  I threw gently placed it in my bedroom far back in a corner under a lot of stuff so I didn’t have to see the freak.

Weeks passed and my mom was kind of upset that I was not playing with said expensive Cabbage Patch doll.  I mean after all, it was a toy.  My mother nagged and nagged and nagged – asked me repeatedly when I was going to play with the beautiful doll.  Until one day, I thought sure let’s play with the Cabbage Patch doll with a wicked look on my face.  Uh – oh, this can’t turn out good, right?

So I took the evil little Cabbage Patch doll out in the back yard to play.  I was out in the yard for a while before I came back inside of the house.  My mom was cooking dinner and looked out the back window and saw smoke.  My mom didn’t know what it was and asked me about it.  I told her it wasn’t important.  Hey, there’s smoke out there – it has to be important, right?  So my mother took me back outside to investigate the smoke.

That’s when me and my mom found it.  I say it because you see I never named that Cabbage Patch doll.  And, don’t think that I was a pyromaniac or anything – I wasn’t.  You see the story was that I was playing Cowboys and Indians.  I was a Cowboy and you guessed it – that Cabbage Patch doll was an Indian.   The “Indian”… AKA Cabbage Patch doll… got tied up to a tree because it wouldn’t say uncle.  Since it wouldn’t give in, I set it on fire.  End of Cabbage Patch doll – evil laughter.
