    Good Health Natural products!! sounds like crunchy goodness!

    I recently came upon whole grain/multi-grain tortilla chips from a company called "food should taste good" and they are FREAKIN AWESOME!!! there are a couple of flavors but I just like the plain natural multi-grain...so nutty and one of my favorites is in these...sesame seeds!

    I sooo hope I am the winner...I am in a dark place again this week :(

  20. HI Diane,
    What a great blog you have- I discovered through the OWOH festival( at least I am pretty sure that is how I found you) I enjoyed reading your herstory- I am a couple of years older than you but I can relate to the times even if my life experiences were quite different than yours.
    I love the jewelery that you have created on your etsy shop. Your work is lovely and unique.
    I have become a follower but I also have your name on my blog list.

    I did go back to look at some of your earlier posts.
    Here is the answer to the questions posted so far:
    Mar 8 You have 16 rainbarrels or perhaps you have 20 now if you have added the four that you talked out in the post.
    March 9- You have three dogs two whose names are Jack and Ricky Pickles.
    March 10- You won a selection of Good health Natural products that included Hummus chips ( were they delicious - we love hummus in my house) and peanut butter filled pretzels. The list was much longer but looked quite yummy.

    As for your amazing giveaway prize - well it is amazing. My mother is a stamper and she would love some of your stamps- I am a fan of Shawn Colvin. I discovered her work through Mary Chapin Carpenter and have been a fan ever since.
    Your blog giveaway closes on my grandfather's 100 th birthday ( or what would have been his 100th birthday- perhaps it will be a lucky day for me. If not you will draw someone's name who will be a very lucky person.

    You can find my blog here:

    Warmest regards,
    Anna

  26. Question for March 8th answer
    There were 16 food grade drums. I have a well also and we have farm animals (just goats, chickens and geese that are our pets) and it is hard in the summer time because we have to pack water from our pond. The drums are a great idea I may have to look into. Gets hot in Ohio and hardly no rain in the summer.

  33. 3/11 question...Rickypickles plays fetch-into-tug-of-war!
    working on the bonus riddle....An Umbrella

    ReplyDelete
  34. 3/13...you have never talked on a cell phone...and I am guessing that you have never texted either...I am not a big texter myself, but I do use a cell phone VERY, very seldom...when away from the house for more than an hour.

    and I had to ask my son what STFU was and then laughed cause he had a T shirt that said that, and he used to write in on his middle finger in sharpie in HS, so once he reminded me then I was like oh yea!!

    OH and he doesn't know anyone named Donovan...so much for that...Greenville is pretty big.

    TTFN (do you know that one)

    LOL

    Susan

  42. Ricky pickles....that just makes me giggle!
    His favorite game is you throw, he retrieves, you go to throw but he does NOT let go and a great time is had engaging in tug-o-war until he lets you have it. Then it starts over. He's a great growler and sounds extremely ferocious. Kind of a cross between Wolfman Jack and the Tasmanian Devil.
    I love it!!!
