HAPPY BIRTHDAY TODAY (5/31/14) to: PlaysInTheDirt! May you have a wonderful day with loved ones, and many happy and healthy years to come!

BELATED BIRTHDAY WISHES TO: dinkyd, who hopefully had a wonderful celebration yesterday (5/30/14), with many more to come! It is fun to celebrate all week, not just on one day!

Celebrity Birthday 5/31: Peter Yarrow, of the folk group Peter, Paul, and Mary. I have always loved their music. And whenever I listened to it as a child, it drove my brother crazy, which I considered a bonus.

Puff the Magic Dragon has always made me cry: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RC2tlNmz4ao

There is an absolutely wonderful book of Puff the Magic Dragon, which includes a CD:
NOT FREE Puff, the Magic Dragon NOT FREE

How many of you remember the recurring theme of "Things That Make You Go Hmmmmm" on the Arsenio Hall show? I recall from the show: Why is it that we DRIVE on PARKWAYS and PARK on DRIVEWAYS?

Things that make me go Hmmmm...
*There is no egg in eggplant and no ham in hamburger.
* Pineapples don't have any apples or pines.
*English muffins weren't invented in England, and French fries aren't French.
*Sweetmeats are candies while Sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat.
*Quicksand often works slowly.
*Boxing rings are square.
*Guinea pigs are not from Guinea, and they are not pigs.

What are some things that make you go Hmmmm?

BTW, I updated my profile picture to show the other oil painting my Mom made of the South Street Seaport in Manhattan.

Tippetarius, thank you for starting today. The painting your mother did is beautiful. So talented!

Happy Birthday to PlaysinDirt and Dinkyd!

Things That Make You Go Hmmmmm-- can't think of any right now, but there are many in this strange English language we speak!

Hmmm...Rocky mountain oysters do not have shells nor are they going to give you a pearl.

@ Snowlady Sandy

Wow you are taking on nearly a whole week's worth of starts - that is very good of you.

Hope that you have a good weekend ahead of you, does it include going to work ? If so then I do hope that people order lots and feel generous when you rush up with their piping hot food

Posted on May 31, 2014 12:01:44 AM PDT
red, only two starts.. That's not bad...
Plus I like doing them..
Yes I work Sat. and Sun.. but only four hours each day..
At lunch so I will have the evenings off and mom and I will be able to do something..

Why isn't phonetic spelled the way it sounds?
Why are there interstate highways in Hawaii?
Why are there flotation devices under plane seats instead of parachutes?
Why are cigarettes sold in gas stations when smoking is prohibited there?
Why do fat chance and slim chance mean the same thing?
Why is it so hard to remember how to spell 'mnemonic'?
Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?
Why is it called a "near miss" when you don't hit something?
Why does an alarm clock "go off" when it begins ringing?
Why does "cleave" mean both split apart and stick together?
Why is it, whether you sit up or sit down, the result is the same?
Why call it a building if it's already been built?
Why do kamikaze pilots wear helmets?
Why call it "take" a dump, when you leave something behind?
Why do we call it a hot water heater if the water is already hot?
Why is a pear called a pear when there is only one?
Why is it that when you're driving and looking for an address, you turn down the volume on the radio?
If ATM stands for Automatic Teller Machine, why do we call it an ATM machine? And if PIN stands for Personal Identification Number, why do we call it a PIN number?

Glad that you will have some evenings off and will be able to be social with your mum - hope you will be on a winning streak if you go to the casino ;-)

Well, We did say that we would go once a month and the last time we went was April 27th...
But we haven't talked about it yet..

@ Tip
Yet another wonderful picture - you must be so proud of your Mother's talent.
I see that you have also changed your name, a bit - wonder when that will show up here.

Have to say that I love the songs by Peter, Paul, and Mary, so now am humming Puff - thanks for sharing

I might have to have an explanation of what Rocky mountain oysters are - especially since I would not associate mountains with oysters .... ever ;-)

You might not really want to know...
Rocky Mountain oysters are bull calf testicles used for human consumption. Sometimes pig or sheep testicles are used. They are often deep-fried after being peeled, coated in flour, pepper and salt, and sometimes pounded flat. Wikipedia

A contestant on "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" had reached the final plateau. If she answered the next question correctly, she would win $1,000,000. If she answered incorrectly, she would pocket only the $32,000 milestone money. As she suspected it would be, the million- dollar question was no pushover. It was: Which of the following species of birds does not build its own nest, but instead lays its eggs in the nests of other birds? Is it

A) the condor;
B) the buzzard;
C) the cuckoo; or
D) the vulture?"

The woman was on the spot. She did not know the answer. And she was doubly on the spot because she had used up her 50/50 Lifeline and her Audience Poll Lifeline. All that remained was her Phone-a-Friend Lifeline, and the woman had hoped against hope that she would not have to use it because the only friend that she knew would be home happened to be a blonde. But the contestant had no alternative. She called her friend and gave her the question and the four choices.

The blonde responded unhesitatingly: "That's easy. The answer is C: The cuckoo."

The contestant had to make a decision and make it fast. She considered employing a reverse strategy and giving Regis any answer except the one that her friend had given her. And considering that her friend was a blonde, it would seem to be the logicalthing to do. On the other hand -- the blonde had responded with such confidence, such certitude, that the contestant could not help but be persuaded. "I need an answer," said Regis. Crossing her fingers, the contestant said, "C: The cuckoo."

"Is that your final answer?" asked Regis. "Yes, that is my final answer."

Two seconds later, Regis said, "I regret to inform you that the answer is-...... absolutely correct. You are now a millionaire!"

Three days later, the contestant hosted a party for her family and friends including the blonde who had helped her win the million dollars. "Jenny, I just do not know how to thank you," said the contestant. "Because of your knowing the answer to that final question, I am now a millionaire. And do you want to know something? It was your assuredness with which you answered the question that convinced me to go with your choice. By the way......how did you happen to know the right answer?"

"Oh, come on!" said the blonde. "Everybody knows that cuckoos don't build nests. They live in clocks."
