Natural Weed killer

Got weeds in your crack?
Here's a natural, but effective way to kill them.

8 cups apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup salt
1/2 tsp dawn dish soap

I sprayed some dandelions and other grasses on Sunday.
Today they looked half dead.

1948 Whizzer

~~Whizzer bicycle engines are a line of bicycle engines that were produced in the United States from 1939 to 1965. They were commonly sold as kits to be assembled and attached to a consumer's bicycle thus creating a motorized bicycle. Whizzer U.S.A. re-appeared in 1997 to sell an improved version, pre-assembled on an old Schwinn-style bicycle frame.~~

Quinoa Coconut Cookies

  • 6 Tablespoons Egg Whites
  • 1/4 Cup Honey
  • 1 1/2 Cups Unsweetened Coconut, Shredded
  • 1 Cup Cooked Quinoa
  • Pinch of salt
  1. Combine the egg whites and honey in a heatproof bowl and place the bowl over a pot with boiling water inside. Whisk the eggs and honey together until creamy and warm.
  2. Remove from heat and mix in coconut, quinoa and salt. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 350F .
  4. Scoop mixture and form into 12-16 small “patties”. Place on baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes

My Redneck Injury

Yes, I took a whizz on the Redneck's homemade whizzer.
I was totally impressed with it.
And wanted to ride it.
But that muffler is hot, and riding in shorts and sandals is likely not the best idea.
Nothing time and polysporin won't heal.
My sis said : " why is it you have to experience everything? Isn't  it ever enough just to look at it ?"

Obviously not.
 I may be a redneck.

Vaginal dryness

Must be my age...  vaginal dryness is often discussed amongst friends and golfers.
Especially around #15.
I try to take their concerns seriously, as  I know my turn will soon come.
According to experts, vaginal dryness can be caused by many factors:
  • Not being aroused enough before sex, or not wanting to have sex
  • Being penetrated before you're ready
  • Feeling stressed
  • Taking medications that are drying, including accutane, decongestants and antihistamines
  • Using marijuana before and during sex — it can dehydrate. ( Guess you should not take up that habit after 50)
  • Birth control pills, Depo-Provera, pregnancy, and breastfeeding can contribute to vaginal dryness. ( I don't recall any dryness during pregnancies)
  • Having an infection
  • Getting older and menopause
Vaginal dryness is one reason why some women have sex during their period.  Natural lubrication.
Now most of those I have heard complain, actually have no period.
I did learn about a cream, not vaginal, that has hormones, and is absorbed through your skin, and replenishes nice things like lubrication.
Of course there is alway K-Y.
The best line I ever heard was this:
" Dry ? Well  I could wear my uindies for a week and they'd still smell the laundry detergent!"

Cabinets renewed

Last week I posted a recipe ( 3/4 canola oil and 1/4 apple cider vinegar, shake, shake , shake in a mason jar. Apply with one cloth, wipe with another ) to give your cabinets a facelift. While they weren't really in need of repair, on the east side of my kitchen island, the cabinets were faded. I often wondered about fixing them. ( Sanding, staining, and verathane). I put this mixture on the cabinet door. There was a difference, but many spots remained pale. So day 2 I reapplied, and day 3 and day 4 and day 5.  Voila !  I did that entire side of the island. It looks new and I am amazed. First picture is day 3 and the bottom picture is today, day 6.

Bacon Wrapped Pineapple Shrimp 

12 jumbo shrimp, deveined
1/4 fresh pineapple cut into bite sized chunks or 1 (14-ounce) can pineapple chunks in natural juice, drained
6 slices center-cut bacon, cut in 1/2 crosswise
12 wooden toothpicks

Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. 

Holding a shrimp, nest a chunk of pineapple in the natural curve of the shrimp then wrap bacon around the shrimp and pineapple and secure with a wooden toothpick. 

Wrap and secure all 12 shrimp then add to the hot pan and cook 3 minutes on each side or until bacon is crisp and shrimp are opaque and firm.

Recipe from Rachel Ray

Next summer you could make us some of these.
Bacon wrapped jumbo shrimp with a pineapple tidbit.
No one on earth makes better bacon wrapped scallops than Mr KLS, and I bet he can make these mouth watering as well.

La Voix de la Mer

... no doubt you have heard about it. 
Nothing but rave reviews.
And everywhere I go I hear about my neighbour, LL, who has a wonderful singing voice, and obviously a passion for acting ! Great Job !
There are 3 more nights, and tonight is sold out.
SO that leaves you Friday and Saturday. Likely be tickets at the door.
My best part...  was the opening of scene two. The dark sea girls are angry, fast and deadly, just like the wicked sea we all know. It's beautiful and captivating.
What surprized me? The ease at which Miss Adams sings.  Twice, while engrossed in the play, I didn't notice her singing. I heard it, but it came on so softly, I never noticed. I never imagined that anyone standing right before me was capable producing such an angelic voice.
Bravo Yvette and your team !
It will be featured tomorrow night on CTV News at 5.

This is the d’Entremont families that came back to Pubnico from Exile.

BINGO Report

We were six at the regular table. I won $60 and the walker won a nice game.
The hostess has brand new bi, or tri-focals, and looked to be blind as a bat at times.
Trying to keep her head somewhat straight. Not a wonder she never won.
My phone rang so I put it on silent. After the sixth call from home, I thought it might be urgent, so I stepped out to return the call.
Bring home bread was the message.
"Don't you realize I am playing BINGO???" I asked, annoyed.
Yes, he said. Surely you can answer and talk for a second !
He obviously doesn't know much about BINGO playing.
Have a good mind to whack him with the loaf. But it's too soft.
An old dry "Pain de Chu Nous" would do.

Bake Sale:

  There will be a bake sale on Saturday, April 27 at the Centre de Pombcoup (fire hall) from 9 to 11am.
  Profit from this event will go towards purchase of fireworks which will be part of an event at the Village historique acadien on Sunday, August 4, 2013.
Bring the food to the hall Friday from 6pm to 7pm or on Saturday morning.

30 day Crunch challenge

Is anyone doing this challenge yet?? Starting 2morrow :-)

1. Lie down with your back flat to the floor.
2. Elevate your feet so your knees are at a 90-degree angle to your body. It may be easier to rest your feet on a chair, or keep them on the floor and just bend your knees.
3. Cross your hands in front of your chest. For more advanced crunches, put your hands behind your head, but with the fingertips lightly touching the head, not clasping the head or neck.
4. Make sure there is a fist's worth of space between your chin and chest.
5. Draw your belly button in to the base of your spine.
6. Sit up until your elbows or chest reach your knees. Be careful to use abdominal rather than back, leg or neck muscles.
7. Exhale as you sit up. Inhale as you lie down.

So true

OMG , I remember that.'s photo.

Pubnico Point Trail Association

If you weren't at the information session tonight, you missed out.
Present was 60 people, and one big united sense of community pride.
What started as a conversation between Felton and Paul C about nice trails in a neighbouring province, has everyone excited.
In summary, dreams will become reality, and a trail will be constructed around the picturesque Pubnico Point.
A trail for walking and non-motorized vehicles, such as bicycles.
It's a three part project, and as you know, the funding and planning all takes time. But Part one will soon be begin, with the help of some funding, and community volunteers. And there was no shortage of potential volunteers there tonight. I heard people volunteering to build boardwalks, cut trees, haul branches, make a lunch, and even set up a first aid tent if need be.
The first section, called Pubnico Ledge Trail, will be 1700m in total. Part of it, 700m, will be on the present road. The trail's grade (how steep) is less than 8%, therefore deemed senior friendly indeed. There are 4 poorly drained areas on this site, resulting in 3 small (70ft, 100ft, and 60ft) ground level puncheons (boardwalks), and one 125ft raised puncheon. Carpentry skills will be needed.
4 look off/ rest areas have been identified for this trail.

Thanks for the opportunity to listen and ask questions, and most of all thanks for the effort and dream. I am certain I speak for all present, when I say you make us proud to call Pubnico home.

Lessons in Cunnilingus

I found and read an article, had something to do with lessons in cunnilingus. It was really weird, a play actually, and had no lessons at all.
But there was a cute line, where the woman asks her lover...
“Do you know what a vulva is?”

“Sure. My father used to drive one.”

Do you use Tide Pods?

Click here to get to the Tide website and order your Tide Pod resealable Stickers.

Tide says :
Tide Pods tub over-the-lid re-sealable sticker is intended to help to reduce accidental access to the product by reinforcing proper use and storage practices. One over-the-lid re-sealable sticker is designed to be applied during the use of one Tide Pods tub. For additional tubs, a new over-the-lid re-sealable sticker should be applied. The Tide Pods tub over-the-lid re-sealable sticker does not substitute for proper adult supervision and the product with the sticker should be stored out of the reach of children in a locked cabinet.

Cabinet SOS

Are you kitchen cabinets looking a little tired? 
I found a quick and easy formula on Pinterest to restore them.  Mix 3/4 cup canola oil and 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar, place in a jar and shake, shake, shake.  Take a rag (a cotton tee-shirt works best) and rub the oil onto the cabinets, wipe with another clean cloth and you will be amazed with the outcome! Here is a before and after photo of one of my kitchen cabinet doors (the one under the sink where I am constantly spilling water onto it!)

I am going to try this, and will post a before and after.


I tried to post this before, and it got removed my the blogger police.
SO let me rephrase.

You know that machine in the barn-looking building by the pharmacy in West Pubnico.
The one that gives out money?
If you need a crisp $50 bill, all you have to do is ask the machine for it.
Don't choose the amounts in 20 dollar dominations.
Choose other
Type in 50
and you get a 50 dollar bill.

He said" Oh yeah, I got to remember that AW likes his extra bald."

Hard question

Supper is over, and I'm watching the end of the movie "Hope Springs".
Loverboy is doing dishes.
I ask him " Can you recall the best sex you've had with me?"
He stops with the dishcloth, looks at me and says "what?" with that weird look on his face.
I repeat.
He says " Is this a trick question?"

I tell him that the couple in the movie are with a therapist, and that is the question he has asked them.
Not thinking he'd keep talking, he says " do you want the day or the year ? what do you want? I can't even remember what I ate yesterday!"

I tell him I want specifics...   the where, when, how.
He never says another word and finishes the dishes while I watch TV.
Later he comes back into the kitchen.

He names a couple ..." maybe when.."   and says he's still thinking.
Then he quickly adds " it wasn't in Quinan!"

I burst out laughing. And I know 3 ladies who will laugh at this as well.

He cracks me up!

First Aid and CPR

Spent the day updating first aid and CPR. What's new since my last course?
  • they no longer use the term Heimlich manoeuvre. It's called abdominal thrusts. And it's now okay to pound someone on the back when choking. Actually when they are choking, you bend them over at their waist, and give them 5 hard blows with the bottom of your palm, right between the shoulder blades. After that, if they have not dislodged the object/food in their throat, you give them abdominal thrusts.

  • I learned to use an AED automated external defibrillator. It's an awesome machine and easy to use. It checks the heart's rhythm and therefore will never shock a person who should not receive it.
The image shows a typical setup using an automated external defibrillator (AED). The AED has step-by-step instructions and voice prompts that enable an untrained bystander to correctly use the machine.
