theres nothing like clam chowder....

My backyard, at sunset.....

the clan ,Tank, Molly,Bella on her hind legs, and sassy


Thanks Val, I think I got It right this time.. and it is smelling soooooooooo GOOD.....



Ok let me start from the beginning When i was a child my grandma made the best clam chowder this side or anyside of california.....she used clams and celery stalk, the leaves from celery an onion ,potatoes and i thought condensed milk.. but thinking back on it she used evaporated milk...and told me to make sure it was not condensed..damn! to my shock and horror they only make sweetend condensed milk, which is what she did not use, you see when i used to make my clam chowder i would call my grandma a millions times asking her this or that..... wel as i am making my clam chowder my base is good.... really good , then i start pouring in the milk.. and let me tell you do not use sweet condensed milk it ruined my whole pot.. it was the worst, so i e-mailed val....and she sent me this recipe....which i now have cooking...thank god she did not send me her no. because i would of been calling her asking the paticular questions....but its all good and val you rock , my house smells good.....






So yesterday as we know was fri. the 13th.. ughhhhhhh, and it was a bad day.. first off i was walking threw the house and twisted my ankle ...damn it hurt then i go lay down getting off my foot and knock over a whole can of soda, which went int my puse, and to top all that off, when i was walking out the door, smash my finger..... grrrrrrrrrrrrr...we were suppose to have clam chowder but you all now what happened to that......so Dave took me out to a reatarant called gino's and it was the best.......






well today just sitting here doing nothing , hope everyone else is having a good weekend!

Dave is out of town and our




taxes are almost taken care of .. thank you crystal for all your help , and mom for your ear and shoulders.....


Dave did go to the bay area for a couple days but he had to clear the bay area union and they would not clear him so home he came, and that was Fri.. so he made it into town.. Fri night just in time to go pick up the girls, and I can stay in town to go get a decent blouse for his Christmas party on sat.....which i did then he meets me we get some dinner and off to the show to see Christmas Carrol , the new one with Jim Carey.. it was really good, mind you my husband is exhausted, he has been up since 5 driven 8 hours, and has not rested till we hit the movie theater.. so we are watching the movie in a packed theater, and i suddenly hear the sound of some one snoring LOUDLY........yep I look over and there is my husband head back, mouth open, just snoring at the top of his lungs....Dave..Dave...wake up....DAVE WAKE UP...today he asks me how the movie was.....




The Christmas party as always was fun...he works for a good company, and they treat there guys good....so ot was nice......


Tonight was also good, since dave is out of town and my son is staying the night at his friends house, I bought the movie up, and yes it is a cute kids movie..we had ourselfs a girls night, I just love these great moments and memories ......with my kids! There is nothing like a good family...and values....




One last thing..the girls got there report cards....lynzie got all A's and the girls got all S's that's what they give 3rd grade grading...still waiting on my sons..

Chores and kids...CHECK

And i'm gonna kick my sons butt CHECK. as soon as dave leaves town he seems to think that well he can do and say what he wants.. well that is not working well for me and now not for him...cell phone.. no more check...stereo.. no more...check...x-box 360.. put away deep in the pits of his new hell....check....he will now never ever say these words to me ever when i tell him he needs to or has not done anything...and i quote" I just want to be like Lynzie"... What in the heck is wrong with these friggin kids today and thinking they don't have to do chores and when they do thinking we have to re-finace our house to pay them...not in my world.. now or ever.....i remeber when i was a kid I got 25 cents.. and was happy...now a days kids think they need twenty bucks aweek...sorry kids , not happening.. even if there was no recession..... grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...Talking about being mad, i believe i never ever have been this mad at my son.......

Anyways yes dave did leave for the bay area..he is in oakland..and yes today is also his birthday which is really sad..i can say i do really miss him and he has only been gone one day..and I am used to him being out of town.. This time it is diffrent I don't no...diffrent...

Anyways I just wanna tell you bout my dog as this is the most exciting thing in my life as of lately....Well we have a dog and her name is Molly she is ichelles dog, we got her after her dog pork chop hung himsel...anyways the other night we all go to bed and I take a sleeping pill have for years.. and when i do go to sleep am that way dead to the world....well I guess after my coma sleep has set in, dave said the dachshunds.. (*my baby bella and alexs's dog sassy would not stop barking then he hears Molly just howling and really crying.. welll he runs out side..Dressed only in what god has givin him and molly has jumped the fence , but her leg has got caught in the fence ornament...he finnally gets her back paw undone and tells me a couple hours later, when i finally wake from my coma state that molly has a broken paw.......mind you this dog can jump and clear a eight foot fence..Damn another bill ..so when i go out to take the kids i check her paw and it looks just fine...and now dave and i are both confident that this little accident has cured her from jumping fences and bye the grace of god her paw is fine....WELL Her paw is fine but i'll be damned she has not learned her lesson and that dang dog is still jumpimg fences....ugh insert pictures...of fence...

Whoever said owning a house is

The best thing in the world, LIED, I have had more streess since i bought this house than i think i ever had wondering were the heck i was gonna get my rent from... if a damn water pipe broke the fix is just a phone call away to the beloved or not sometimes landlord( i mostly had good ones).. and NO taxes...so this is what my post is about !!!TAXES... and they suck.. i never relized it till I got my first tax bill... they more than double and i have only been in this damn house..ok i do love my house since july....the tax asseser people seem to think my house value has like doubled....I don't see how...we fix broken pipes..we have a boat load of tree's that are dead and when the dreaded wind blows they fall(hence tons of fire wood) for the fire place , wood burning stove as our heater does not work....so if this is how our house value has doubled than i'll be damned...lets cut those oout buildings down.. and let the weeds overide the horse arena i'll never us.....and then lets see if my taxes drop!! with my luck they ed raise the damn things again.....


o.k. anyways dave has been working , oh thank god, because since this little tax hike my mortage went up....oh yea the tax subject was closed...grrrrr..anyways he will be going up to the bay area,maybe wed. happy birthday honey..it sucks but work is what it is....on the upside.. he is gona try and get ahold of his cousin and aunt...and maybe get to see them..he has not been able to see them in a couple of years....

so how was everyones halloween? mine pretty good, my sister came over and picked up our whole family we went to itown and i had a really nice time, hardly any houses were giving out stuff, but the night was great no mishaps..and the kids had a ball!!!

well yesterday i wake up, and gave my twins there ninth birthday presents hugs and kisses and a couple of tears, my babies are growing up FAST!and they curl there hair with no help from mommie, because they can...sniffle....and then the phone rings , it says out of town...I do not answer out of town calls...but i hear this voice....oh oh its smocha..wheres the phone ....find the phone, and i finnally do...YEA....it was so perfect.......sometimes you just need that one call to lift up your sprits....and as i'm talkin to her i hear her babies, cavuto, o'reilly and of course stiffy (MONKEY)and as we are talking she is tellin me about the cat walks and how people just shun her.. I think there not shuning her, they are so shock to see a cat in a baby stroller,..... there not sure if they should laugh or look down......and of course they turn there heads... now if it was me i would stare and mumble how cute it is!!!of course walk up and start talking!!!!anyways as the conversation moves on , i hear the cat shriek from hell , we are talking loud cat shriek....and ask what the hell....she calmly tells me cavuto has walk in front of monkey...just strolled bye........and her bitchy self goes into over drive.....

so this is what has been going on in my world.....been working at the school sum...but not the boys and girls club.. i believe i should call my boss and ask her whats up is there nothin else anywhere else i will travellll....i just don't want to bug her!

Video virgin....

video

Ola Peeps,

It's me, Smocha.......guest posting up in here. Today we took the boat out for the first time since Poodles has been here. Go Us! We inadvertently picked the hottest day of the year. It was 100 freakin' degrees. About 5 seconds out of the water and you felt like you were being burned at the stake.
The boat was covered in spider webs, spider poo and spiders themselves,so before we could really enjoy ourselves we had to remedy that situation. We got on rafts and went around the entire boat with hand towels ,then she stayed on a raft and followed me while I wiped down the top side, toss the rag down....she rinsed it out ,then tossed it back up.The temperature of the seats was about to cause 3rd degree burns on my knees. To hell with all spiders!!!You bastards!
Then we ate our fabulous lunches we had packed and baked ourselves like lobsters.
I would have liked to stayed out even longer ,good thing we didn't because I had no idea how burned up I was.
On the drive home Vicki used her cameras video for the first time. Even though it appears to have been filmed by a raging drunk, I assure you that is not the case. We were stone sober. It was the waves and the power of our boat. :)) wink, wink.
After we got home we went and got some movies and some Starbucks with "extra shots" like we needed that! In case you noticed the time of this post , that is WHY.
We just watched Revolutionary Road .........in one word....DEPRESSING!
and Incendiary.......in one word......GOOD.(but only if you can understand the fast British accents) Tear jerker too.


We'll write the story of our camping adventure tomorrow.

Love Us

puppy dog tails and snails:

we thought this was only meant for boys,I forgot to tell you all.. so a couple of weeks ago these first graders come running up to me so and so is eating lady bugs.. GROSS, and yesa this was a little girl.....so last week, i'm on the field abunch of kids come running up to me,
so and so is eating worms, and she yes ashe was eating them yesterday toooooo!!!!!so i go over there and yes said child which was another little girl was eating worms.....and we think little boys are gross!!!oh and this kid is the daughter of a teacher...imagine.

so nothing much happening, trying to get insure for the house which is harder than getting the house, we will live ten miles from a fire station, which that in itself brings insurance rates sky high,we have to many out buildings another minus, it does not matter that there is a fire hydrant in my front yard, we were also told that we need a well to get insurance,HELLO people we have county water, which i would think is better, and the real kicker our house is to old to insure...
so after many hours of being on the phone we did find insurance for under a thousand dollars a year , with 1000 dollar deductable....which is what everyone has to offer a thousand dollar deductable..
makes me wander why renting is so bad.....if something breaks call the landlord....if the roof leaks , call the land lady, you get the picture, but on the up side owning your own home , we will have something to leave our kids....

anyways what is everyones plan today, i will be going to a party tonight, the kids are welcome and they will be swimming, can't wait its gonna be a blowout...
have a good weekend

Stages of life

My sister sent this to me, I just had to psaa it on to my friends....
LIFE SmileyCentral.com

Summary of Life

GREAT TRUTHS THAT LITTLE CHILDREN HAVE LEARNED:

1) No matter how hard you try, you can't baptize cats..
2) When your Mum is mad at your Dad, don't let her brush your hair.
3) If your sister hits you, don't hit her back. They always catch the second person.
4) Never ask your 3-year old brother to hold a tomato.
5) You can't trust dogs to watch your food.
6) Don't sneeze when someone is cutting your hair.
7) Never hold a Dust-Buster and a cat at the same time.
8) You can't hide a piece of broccoli in a glass of milk.
9) Don't wear polka-dot underwear under white shorts.
10) The best place to be when you're sad is Grandpa's lap.



GREAT TRUTHS THAT ADULTS HAVE LEARNED:

1) Raising teenagers is like nailing jelly to a tree.
2) Wrinkles don't hurt.
3) Families are like fudge...mostly sweet, with a few nuts
4) Today's mighty oak is just yesterday's nut that held its ground..
5) Laughing is good exercise. It's like jogging on the inside.
6) Middle age is when you choose your cereal for the fiber, not the toy.



GREAT TRUTHS ABOUT GROWING OLD

1) Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional..
2) Forget the health food. I need all the preservatives I can get.
3) When you fall down, you wonder what else you can do while you're down there.
4) You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster.
5) It's frustrating when you know all the answers but nobody bothers to ask you the questions.
6) Time may be a great healer, but it's a lousy beautician
7) Wisdom comes with age, but sometimes age comes alone.


THE FOUR STAGES OF LIFE:

1) You believe in Santa Claus.
2) You don't believe in Santa Claus.
3) You are Santa Claus.
4) You look like Santa Claus.


SUCCESS:

At age 4 success is . . . . not piddling in your pants.
At age 12 success is . . . having friends.
At age 17 success is . . having a driver's license.
At age 35 success is . . . .having money.
At age 50 success is . . . having money.
At age 70 success is . .. . having a drivers license.
At age 75 success is . . . having friends.
At age 80 success is . . . not piddling in your pants.

out of the mouths of second graders....

this was sent to me from my friend donna whom i've known since i was 12


WHY GOD MADE MOMS

Answers given by 2nd grade school children to the following questions:

Why did God make mothers?

1. She's the only one who knows where the scotch tape is.

2. Mostly to clean the house.

3. To help us out of there when we were getting born.

How did God make mothers?

1. He used dirt, just like for the rest of us.

2. Magic plus super powers and a lot of stirring.

3. God made my mom just the same like he made me. He just used bigger parts.

What ingredients are mothers made of?

1. God makes mothers out of clouds and angel hair and everything nice in the world and one dab of mean.

2. They had to get their start from men's bones. Then they mostly use string, I think.

Why did God give you your mother and not some other mom?

1. We're related.

2. God knew she likes me a lot more than other people's mom like me.

What kind of a little girl was your mom?

1. My mom has always been my mom and none of that other stuff.

2. I don't know because I wasn't there, but my guess would be pretty bossy.

3. They say she used to be nice.

What did mom need to know about dad before she married him?

1. His last name.

2. She had to know his background. Like is he a crook? Does he get drunk on beer?

3. Does he make at least $800 a year? Did he say NO to drugs and YES to chores?

Why did your mom marry your dad?

1. My dad makes the best spaghetti in the world. And my mom eats a lot.

2. She got too old to do anything else with him.

3. My grandma says that mom didn't have her thinking cap on.

Who's the boss at your house?

1. Mom doesn't want to be boss, but she has to because dad's such a goof ball.

2. Mom. You can tell by room inspection. She sees the stuff under the bed.

3. I guess mom is, but only because she has a lot more to do than dad.

What's the difference between moms and dads?

1. Moms work at work and work at home and dads just go to work at work.

2. Moms know how to talk to teachers without scaring them.

3. Dads are taller and stronger, but moms have all the real power 'cause that's who you got to ask if you want to sleep over at your friends.

4. Moms have magic, they make you feel better without medicine.

What does your mom do in her spare time?

1. Mothers don't do spare time.

2. To hear her tell it, she pays bills all day long.

What would it take to make your mom perfect?

1. On the inside she's already perfect. Outside, I think some kind of plastic surgery.

2. Diet. You know, her hair. I'd diet, maybe blue.

If you could change one thing about your mom, what would it be?

1. She has this weird thing about me keeping my room clean. I'd get rid of that.

2. I'd make my mom smarter. Then she would know it was my sister who did it not me.

3. I would like for her to get rid of those invisible eyes on the back of her head.

WHEN YOU STOP LAUGHING -- SEND IT ON TO OTHER MOTHERS, GRANDMOTHERS, AND AUNTS....and anyone else who has anything to do with kids or just needs a good laugh!!!

not much happening here... dave and i will be and buying a house .. don't want to say much , i'm afraid the curse will curse me if i do!

I just had too post thhis

The Pregnant Blonde


The other day my neighbor, who is blonde, came running up to me in the driveway
jumping for joy! I didn't know why she was jumping so excitedly but I
thought, 'what the heck', and I starting jumping up and down along with
her.

She said, 'I have some really great news!'

I said, 'Great. Tell me why you're so happy.'

She stopped jumping and breathing heavily from all the jumping up and down,
told me that she was pregnant. I knew she'd been trying for a while so I
told her, 'That's great I couldn't
be happier for you!'

Then she said, 'There's more.'

I asked, 'What do you mean there's more.'

She said, 'Well, we are not having just one baby. We are going to have
TWINS!'

Amazed at how she could know so soon after getting pregnant, I asked her how
she knew.. She said....

( You're going to love this!)

'Well, that was the easy part. I went to Sam's Club and they had a home
pregnancy kit in a TWIN-pack. Both tests came out positive!'

(not to offend anyone)

ear award....

The Van Gogh's Ear Award was created by.... Roger of Idaho Photo; The following is an excerpt from his blog. Please link your award back to his site.



A Top Award for You

Every year I like to make up a award and hand it out to people that make a difference in the blogsphere. I like to make it a award for all to enjoy and pass out if one so wants to, I just ask if your going to give it out to link back to me as the creator of the Van Gogh's Ear Award.


Inspiration of the Van Gogh's Ear Award

You may know the story of Vincent Van Gogh a well known artist in history. Although a brilliant painter in his later years went quite insane he received the nickname of fou roux ("the redheaded madman"). The most bazaar of Vincent's behavior is when he cut off the lower part of his own left ear lobe, which he wrapped in newspaper and gave to a prostitute named Rachel in the local brothel, asking her to "keep this object carefully. After this he suffered recurrent bouts of mental illness, which led to his suicide July 29, 1890 he was 37 years old. His works of art are priceless.


The point of this award

We are all artist in are own way be it art, photography, writing, philosophy, comedy, blogging and we all go a little crazy sometimes. But if you ever feel so crazy to cut off your ear and give it to a prostitute "Seek Help"!


Always remember you're unique.
Just like everyone else.

So, I would like to pass this along to the following bloggers because I truly do enjoy reading what they have to say mainly because of their own little unique way they have of saying it.


i hope i do this right.....

I pass this on to
