Spring Cleaning

I'm in the mood for a little spring, that is. I am looking around for a new template. Something new, fresh, and inspiring. So far I haven't found what I am looking for. I have no idea exactly what I am looking for, I just assume I will know it when I see it. This may involve moving the blog to another site, a new address....or maybe not. Who knows. I am researching my options at the moment. I'll let you know when I get it all figured out. I am playing around with these new little fish for now, but they are not going to be permanent. I just needed to see something new.

In the meantime, I hope everyone has a good week-end. I am going to a Doggie Easter Egg hunt at Green Springs Park tomorrow with Hannia. She is doing some freelance photography for our local newspaper, and she will be taking pictures of the cute pups while they hunt down their eggs. After that will be lunch at the Tipsy Teapot. The weather is supposed to be nice, so I think it will be fun.

April Fool's Day

Nothing is going on around here that is new and exciting. That makes it particularly hard to come up with blog topics. We've been busy doing ordinary, mundane things.
Work is getting on my nerves. But I am hanging in there by making myself feel a certain amount of gratitude that at least I have a job. Everything is good, just not blog-worthy. Should I make stuff up? Haha. It IS April Fool's, after all.

Anyway, I may not have a good hoax idea up my sleeve, but here's one of my favorite April Fool's jokes of all time. Its a classic!

On April 1, 1957 the British news show Panorama broadcast a three-minute segment about a bumper spaghetti harvest in southern Switzerland. The success of the crop was attributed both to an unusually mild winter and to the “virtual disappearance of the spaghetti weevil.” The Swiss Spaghetti Harvest hoax generated an enormous response. Hundreds of people phoned the BBC wanting to know how they could grow their own spaghetti tree. To this query the BBC diplomatically replied, “Place a sprig of spaghetti in a tin of tomato sauce and hope for the best.”
