GO CHARGERS!

Mr. Hotty

Mr. Hotty


Here is the lizard who it seems has made a home on our patio. We have seen him on three different occasions and doesn't seem to mind us when we are around. He is pretty big - probably around 8 or 9 inches. I thought he had a pretty cool looking design on him. We named him Mr. Hotty. My Aunt in Arizona once had three lizards in her yard hanging out - she named hers, Hotty, Hotter and Hottest.

HAPPY FRIDAY!

~Happy FRIDAY!~
Have a beautiful weekend!

Earth - Prince


I bought Prince's new album over the weekend and have been jammin' it all week long... LOVE HIM! Love him!

Click here for a sample of the beautiful music http://www.3121.com/

It is titled, Earth and is cased in a paper sleeve with very little plastic and has a very cool hologram on the front.

This album is a throw back to his old beats and styles, which makes me love it even more. I love Prince any way you slice him but this album is one of the better ones. I particularly love track #6, Mr. Goodnight. It is a very romantic, dream like song for me...he sings:
A LIMOUSINE IS ABOUT 2 PICK U UP
AND THEN TAKE U 2 A PRIVATE JET
AND THEN U’RE GONNA MEET A LITTLE SPANISH MAN
WHO WILL OFFER U WINE AND MOET
IN AN HOUR OR TWO U’LL B TAKEN 2 A SUITE
THAT WILL RIVAL UR WILDEST DREAMS
& ON THE BED THREE DRESSES 2 CHOOSE FROM, PICK ONE
AND THEN U’LL GET A CALL FROM ME
TELL ME WHICH DRESS U CHOSE SO COULD PUT ON,
PUT ON A MATCHING SUIT
ALL THE REAL DIMES HOLD UR HANDS UP...
U KNOW HOW MR. GOODNIGHT DO

CALL MR. GOODNIGHT... ANY TIME AT ALL
CALL MR. GOODNIGHT
MIKE PHILLY AND THE BAND GOT JAMS AT MIDNIGHT
B4 THE MAIN ATTRACTION, C?
SLOW IT DOWN, "SOMEWHERE HERE ON EARTH"
JUST 2 CHECK HOW UR REACTION B
AND IF UR HEARTBEAT GOES UP A NOTCH OR 2
THERE AIN’T NO TELLING WHAT MIGHT DO
BUT ’VE GOT A MIND FULL OF GOOD INTENTIONS
AND A MOUTH FULL OF RAISINETS
WE CAN WATCH CHOCOLAT ON THE BIG SCREEN
B4 WE CONVENE IN THE POOL
THE WATERFALL WILL WASH UR CARES AWAY
ALREADY LOVE U... DO
just a sample
I can't get enough of him - He is on tour in London next.... PRINCE, Come back and see us in San Diego! Miss you! Love you!
here is another sample:

PLANET EARTH
IMAGINE HOLDING PLANET EARTH
IN THE PALM OF UR HAND
WITH NO REGARD 4 UR PLACE OF BIRTH
OR CLAIM 2 ANY LAND
THE ONLY THING BETWEEN US NOW
IS THE TRUTH WE UNDERSTAND
IF PLANET EARTH WAS IN THE PALM OF UR HAND
50 YEARS FROM NOW
WHAT WILL THEY SAY ABOUT US HERE?
DID WE CARE 4 THE WATER
AND THE FRAGILE ATMOSPHERE?
RECORDED & MIXED AT
PAISLEY PARK, 3121 LAS VEGAS & CIRCLE HOUSE MIAMI
BY PRINCE
ULTIMATE POWER & GLORY
2 THE MOST HIGH - JEHOVAH

GREAT READ!


I found this book at Target last weekend and read it in about 5 days - it was great...


...it is a heart warming story told by an old man about his days in the circus... it is filled with laughs, love and animal antics. It keeps you on your toes...and made me laugh and cry. I think this is one I will keep and I will read again and again. LOVED IT!
Also, there were discussion questions at the end which made me think this book is probably used for college courses... it was so well written - it would be great for that.
PS this is a book for adults not children... there is some profane words used and a bit of adult scenes too.
ENJOY!

FRIDAY!

~HAPPY FRIDAY!~

91X came into the shop earlier this week and gave us 4 tickets to the Del Mar Races and 6 tickets to an advanced screening to see "Balls of Fury" on Monday Night.... so Back to the Track tomorrow - with no camera though - BOO HOO :(
it will still be a fun filled and beautiful day I am sure...I will let you know how we do...

Hope you all have a fabulous Friday!

A BBQ Fit 4 A Princess

Okay, these pics are from the archives... it was a perfect 70 degrees back then...104 today - ouch!

(Lobster Tails+ Rib Eyes + Twice Baked Potatoes)all off the grill = No work for me!
Sweet Deal! And delicious too!

Tumbleweed was waiting patiently for her bite


And My Handsome Hubby to enjoy it with - doesn't get better than that :)

EERRRRR

My camera is not working... it won't even turn on... I am not sure it if is the camera that is broke or the battery is not taking a charge but Boy! am I irritated. :( It stopped working Saturday morning and I have been doing without since...

I have called Best Buy and they said to call the manufacturer after Best Buy Online sends me a new reciept via Snail Mail.... I bought the camera less than 10 months ago so hopefully Casio will fix or replace it...

I want my camera back - sucks without it...

Swiss Steak

Here's another easy recipe for you all to try. This is one my grandmother used to make us often. My grandpa loved it. I think it was one of his favorites. Good stuff!


Swiss Steak
2 Lbs Round steak, tenderized
2 - 14.5oz cans of tomato sauce (plain)
2 T Real Butter
1 small bag of baby carrots
1 large Yellow onion
1/4 cup water
Salt and Pepper
Garlic Salt
Slice onion in 1/4 inch slices and separate rings, reserve about a third of the onion rings. Cut butter into small chucks. Put butter and onion rings at bottom of crockpot, lightly salt/pepper and garlic salt the meat, add meat to pot. Cover the meat with Tomato sauce and add carrots, sprinkle sauce and carrots with salt and pepper. Add water and the reserved onion rings. Cover and cook low 6-8 hours.
Serve with mashed potatoes. The meat's sauce makes a wonderful gravy for the potatoes.
Delicious with sweet corn!
~Enjoy!~

HOT HOT HOT!!!

It has been a scorcher lately! In the 90's everyday and loads of humidity (which we are not used to down here)

To the beach! ...that is where we need to be... 20 degrees cooler there.

We are going to go to La Jolla Cove snorkeling all day tomorrow. The water is in the 70s, a treat for us. There are lots of Jelly fish out since the waters are so warm - we will have to watch out for them. I am sure we will see lots of Tiger Shark, friends have told me there are some big ones outs there right now 4-5 footers. We'll BBQ and Bon Fire at sunset :)

Have a Beautiful weekend.

THIS BUD'S FOR YOU



Do you notice anything strange in this picture?





















Yep the label on the beer bottle is upside down...

A few months ago we made this discovery, then we saw all but one in the case was like that.... we had few laughs.

Later that evening RO decided to call 1-800-DIAL-BUD, the number which has been hammered in our heads by Sea World Brew Master employees. Budweiser retained all the information we gave them off the bottles and the box. Then a couple day later sent us a lovely thank you letter, a check for $12.99 reimbursement and a promise for a birthday gift. They assured us that the problem will be fixed immediately and thanked us for notifying them. Talk about number one in quality control and customer satisfaction! There is a reason why Anheuser Busch is so successful.




Pet pics

I won Tumbleweed a monkey at the fair - she likes to have him on her neck and uses him as a pillow...





Bruce came out and visited for a while, he doesn't choose to do that too often.

More Fair Pics

Jacob LOVED these little boats - he kept giving me thumbs up as he went by...

This was Hayley's First trip to the fair - she had a good time with her Momma.

Goats at the Fair


Here are some of the cute and talented goats we saw at the Del Mar (San Diego County) fair this year... the one on the bucket was cracking me up!

This one wanted me to take her home... she was a lover.
