 These are from a book called Disorder in the American Courts, and are things people actually said in court, word for word, taken down and now published by court reporters that had the torment of staying calm while these exchanges were actually taking place.

Potato Soup

I often make potato soup for us. Well yesterday was no different. I really have no set recipe per se. I start 4 quarts of water on the stove and then I go to chopping up my veggies. Which can include anything from carrots, radishes, celery, broccoli and when it is all done and ready to eat I will add spinach so it's not so wilted. I add about 6-8 potatoes, that I cut up into cubes along with the veggies I have already added to the water. Which I have already added all my spices while my veggies were cooking.
After about 1/2 an hour after the potatoes were put in I check to see that they are soft then in another pan I add 2 cups of milk and about 4-6 tablespoons of flour and mix well. This will help thicken the soup. After this starts to thicken I then add it to the soup mixture slowly. Stirring this all together.
I usually add cheese at this time to give it a cheesy flavor. But if you don't have any that is fine. And this is also when I add the spinach.
OH- I forgot to tell you that I just wash the potatoes and leave the peeling on them. We like it this way. But it's up to you.

Global Online Optical Store- Cheaper Eye Glasses w/discount code.

These are just a few of the new glasses that have come in at Firmoo for you to choose from. What ever you are looking for they have it. Not to mention these come *with your prescription* for no extra cost. How cool is that. I picked out a pair of rimless glasses for $17.50. I couldn't believe it. Now all I have to do is call my eye Dr. Monday and get my prescription and I am good to go.
But I have a deal for you--- I wouldn't forget my FAVORITE friends. I have a code for you to use when buying yours for you to get 10% off your total order.
Use code # 9323081516
This is also great for when you are getting new glasses and don't want to pay the price at the Dr.s office. Just get your script and then come here and order the glasses you want. Just fill in the boxes like they ask and you are good to go- it is that simple. 
Now I have not ordered mine yet - like I said I have to call my Dr. Monday, so I don't know how long it takes for these to get to you yet. But if anyone gets theirs ordered before I do please let me know will you..
Feel free to pass along the discount code to everyone you know. We all like to save as much as we can now days.

Harley-Davidson- not fully "Made in America"

A frequent debate among motorcycle enthusiasts has long been whether Harley-Davidson deserves the "made in the U.S.A." distinction, as various parts are imported from Japan, Germany, Italy and even Australia.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

They finally turned out.
I have made I don't know how many chocolate chip cookies because I have a weakness for these and they always come out looking so nice. But after they are out and cool they get hard. No mater how I adjust the ingredients or the cooking times or the temperature. The outcome  has always been the same until the other day. I tried one more time. I had all the ingredients, well I thought I did. Mr. L. wanted some cookies and so I told him I would have some for him when he came home from work that night. So I got everything ready to make chocolate chip cookies until I see I am without 1 needed ingredient. I am  about to abort the idea until I realize I had just bought a handy gadget at the store the week before. This was that gadget.
 If you look closely you can see Mr. L's. legs. I am setting on the couch and turned to take a good picture with good lighting and ended up with his legs in the shot. One of the dogs is sleeping between his legs. 
I have my laptop on the coffee table in the front room so we don't have to shout at each other from room to room. 
*Like I don't have to shout to get his attention like now when the football games are on.*
                                         Go LIONS... 
 Okay back to the cookies..
I quickly looked at the side that had the cooking equivalents for baking soda, as that was the ingredient I was out of. I was in luck- it had a conversion for me. 
So I went on and made my cookies. This is the recipe I went by. I have no idea where I got it. By the looks of it, I think on the side of a bag of flour.

 But I didn't use the conversion exactly as it said. I did mine differently. But as you can see the outcome was perfect. These came out not only soft from the oven but after they were cool they stayed soft. As you can see they stayed very fluffy. I have a tendency to over round my spoon sizes, as you can see by the size of the cookies. So the next time I make these I will make these smaller. I do think I will add more butter in this though as it was quite stiff. It needed to be more pliable. 
I also used *cheap* chocolate chips. I like using them as they tend to stay their shape and stay soft. 

Have to say that these really passed the mustard with Mr. L. after he got home from work. He ate about 6 before he even took his coat off.

Free Sample Of Quit Tea

Request A Free Sample Of Quit Tea! The Natural Stop Smoking Aid.

So excited - I got a ~~Blogger Award~~

Wow, I don't know what I did to deserve this but Thank you. I got this from Renee' over at GLOW Academy. It is a KREATIV BLOGGER award.
 It sure helped to brighten my day. I needed it, since all we are having today is rain and blowing wind. I hate getting out in weather like this. It is times like this I am getting to where I don't like living in the north any more. Blame it on getting older I don't care. But bring on the mid 70's all year round and I will be happy. 
Love ya all and hope you're having a great day where ever you are.

Happy Fall

one pumpkin to another!!!!!!!
A woman was asked by a 
coworker, 'What is it like to be a Christian?'
coworker replied, 'It is like being a pumpkin.'  God picks you from the 
patch, brings you in, and washes all the dirt off of you.  Then He cuts off 
the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff.
removes the seeds of doubt, hate, and greed.  Then He carves you a new 
smiling face and puts His light inside of you to shine for all the world to 
This was passed on to me by another 
pumpkin.  Now it's your turn to pass it to other pumpkins.

I liked this enough to send it to all the pumpkins in my
