The topic: We have a ceiling fan in the kitchen


A nice, small white fan with lights. And a couple of months ago, the light switch in the fan started to die. I think it's done now, the death throes have finished. It's bitten the giant schnitzel. No matter how many times you pull the chain, the lights do not come on. It needs a new switch.

So, last night we're watching tv, Brian walks into the kitchen. Pulls the chain. Pulls the chain. Pulls the chain. Pulls the chain...keeps pulling the chain. I finally yelled out "INSANITY!" He started laughing and stopped pulling the chain. 

Because we all know what the definition of insanity is, right?

The topic: The cards went out yesterday


And I've got three packages going out in an exchange on a forum where I play. Two are ready, just have to have them taped well and labeled. I'm waiting on a delivery from the post office so I can get the third package out. It's not an actual Christmas exchange, but along the lines of foisting stuff you already have onto someone else. I have so much stuff I bought years ago to sell in my store and never did. I relish the opportunity to get rid of some of it. All of it's useful and if the recipients don't need it, they can regift it. I'm sure someone out there can use it.

And if you'd like, you can still donate to Judith's fund. One of the cats who was saved, didn't make it. The smoke inhalation was too bad. So, right now, only three of her cats are still alive. They're at her vet's for constant observation.

Remember, this woman lost EVERYTHING she owned, except what was in her car. She worked from home, all of her work product was on her computer, her clothes, her furniture, her home....it will take her time and money to rebuild. She's still in the hospital, the breathing tube was removed yesterday. She doesn't know the extent of the damage right now because the doctors want her to heal. She's going to need all of the help she can get. I know I don't have a big following here, but if you could find it in your heart to share this with your friends and acquaintances, and be thankful for what you have and help out someone who's lost everything, every dollar counts, I sure would appreciate it.
