Kitchens without islands (I remember when all our kitchens had tables and chairs smack in the middle. I didn't even realize we don't do this anymore. It feels so right, somehow, and a working island feels so wrong. Don't think I'll ever feel the same way about islands again.) by deloris

THIS IS WORTH KEEPING AND READING FREQUENTLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Written by a 90 Year Old..... This is something we should all read at least once a week!!!!! Make sure you read to the end!!!!!! Written by Regina Brett, 90 years old, of the Plain Dealer, Cleveland , Ohio . "To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It is the most requested column I've ever written. My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more: 1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.. 2. When in doubt, just take the next small step. 3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. 4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch. 5. Pay off your credit cards every month. 6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree. 7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone. 8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it. 9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck. 10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile. 11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present. 12. It's OK to let your children see you cry. 13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about. 14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it. 15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks. 16. Take a deep breath It calms the mind. 17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful. 18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger. 19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else. 20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer. 21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special. 22. Over prepare, then go with the flow. 23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple. 24. The most important sex organ is the brain. 25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you. 26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words :'In five years, will this matter?' 27. Always choose life.. 28. Forgive everyone everything. 29. What other people think of you is none of your business. 30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time. 31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change. 32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does. 33. Believe in miracles. 34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do. 35. Don't audit life.. Show up and make the most of it now. 36. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young. 37. Your children get only one childhood. 38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved. 39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere. 40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back. 41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need. 42. The best is yet to come... 43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up. 44. Yield. 45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift." by eluthrea

Easier said, then done. I have had a hard time containing my emotions for several reasons. I think the biggest point in it all is I am holding onto things again. I just need to learn to manage to let go. It is so hard to do sometimes, because we always want to have it in our hands and control it ourselves. That is not possible with life. Things are not always going to go as we plan them, thats suppose to be the best part -- the surprises, both good an bad. by juliet

Behr Celtic Gray - Don't let the name fool you! I so love this color. Very pretty blue/green/gray paint color. It made me feel happy the moment I started painting it on our walls :D The color seems to change with the light. Sometimes more blue, sometimes more green but it still looks great. Most beautiful in the bright morning sunlight. I fell in love with this color and painted our entire down stairs with it and I love it! I think for the bedroom, I may cut it a bit by adding white to make it just a bit softer for that area by corrine

OK so, THIS IS A BIG FRIGGIN CAT!!! The Savannah cat is the largest breed of house cat in the world. Though i’m not really sure you can call it a house cat since its mammoth size is achieved by breeding a house cat with an African Serval. If your unfamiliar with the Serval it is a small but vicious cousin of the cheetah. But still I think this would effectively solve the pet tiger fantasy wealthy boxers tend to have. by pearlie
