A to Z Blogging Challenge:T is For Twitter Wednesday!

Welcome to another Twitter Wednesday, where I pull some of the funniest tweets from my Twitter feed and post them here for you to read. As always I have left off the names and @'s so no one gets mad. :)

Stop buying your kids playstations and xboxes and maybe they won't be fat asses. 

kids need two and clothes...everything else is extra. 

I tell my wife that she is the love of my life and I tell my girlfriend she is the best sex of my life.

I can't sleep and I need to!!!! Ack gonna write until the words make no sense 

That's right!! Retired hop-scotch champion;)

Sometimes I feel like spelling everything wrong.

I just dropped a frying pan, into the garbage can. It went right in, I didn't even have to grow a fin.

It's amazing how religion can take brilliant, kind people and direct them to do terrible things and lose empathy.

If a man is standing in the middle of the forest speaking, and there is no woman around to hear him, is he still wrong?

I will tell the truth on Thursday instead of Tuesday cuz I'm rebellious like that

I'll jingle you like the keys in my pocket. Yes?! That's my analogy

You can attack the premise. You can blow the premise into smithereens. And people will still be talking about the invalid conclusion.

As I leaned against the wall in the elevator, it occurred to me that an ass is just a pillow attached to your backside. And I smiled.

I think, therefore I’'m dangerous.

My tweets are la creme de la crap.

Complimentary drinks are like all other drinks, except they tell you that you look good before making you feel great

Hallo fast website! Excellent can keep hold of my sanity now whilst I edit the epicness that is my website :D

I thought I was the perfect parent--and then I had kids.

I mainly go to airports for the strip search

You're hostility makes me laugh. 

I take my irresponsibilities very seriously

I propose a toast to the booze for making life seem tolerable.

All aboard!! Choo..choo!! Shkka..shkka..shkka. Help me!! C'mon!!!!

Passing out a lot of insincere "good mornings" today.

A to Z Blogging Challenge: S is For Samples

Welcome to another edition of Freebie Friday, where I tell you what free samples and full sized products I received in the mail and how you can get them too. Someone asked me why I do a 'Freebie Friday" each week, so I'll tell you.

A while back I listed all the free samples and wins that I had received that previous year and so many people didn't believe that I could have gotten so many free things. So I decided to prove it by taking a picture every week and sharing the sites that I found the links to the freebies at. So now you too can get great free samples coming to your mailbox each week.

  You can find links to samples like these at Hey It's Free and Freebie Shark.

This week I received: 

A sample of Secret clinical Strength Deodorant. 

2 samples of Prilosec OTC. 

A coupon for a free 20 oz coke *I got from turning in my points on Coke Rewards*

So did you get any freebies this week?

A to Z Blogging Challenge: O is For Onions and Peppers

It's funny to me now but when Ken and I first met, I did not like sauteed peppers and onions. I don't know what it was about onions that I hated but I really did hate them. Now I make this with just about anything and Ken loves to eat the left overs with eggs in the morning. So Just start with a green bell pepper and a sweet yellow onion.

Add some butter *not margarine* to your sauté pan. 

Slice the peppers and onions into chunks and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently so it doesn't burn. 

In about 20 minutes they will be browned really nicely and the onions take on a really sweet flavor which is something I was not expecting at all. I love them now.

A to Z Blogging Challenge: N is For Naughty Neighbors

Some of you who frequent my blog probably have seen this video I took of my neighbors yelling at each other. Yes, you can't see really well what is going on but it doesn't matter because if you turn the sound up, you can sure hear what is going on. Yes, the fun never stops around my neighborhood. I've had more neighbors like these people than I ever thought possible. I have neighbors right now that love to come out of their apartments and cuss at each other, yell and scream and cry. I really should take more video. lol

A to Z Blogging Challenge: M is For Mental Health in Las Vegas

The whole Mental Health agenda seems to have been dumped and not given any real thought here in Las Vegas. The amount of people who need help because of mental illness here in Las Vegas is staggering and the facilities just aren't here, the doctors are not here and it seems the help is not here. 

We have 1 state hospital for the mentally ill and then a smaller psychiatric hospital that only has a small number of beds, not nearly enough to house all the people who need help. When someone here in Vegas gets arrested for trying to kill themselves or is acting strange and says they are suicidal they are first taken to the ER because in most cases you need a doctors note in order to get a bed at the psychiatric hospital. After going to the ER and being evaluated you are usually admitted into a room in the ER while the staff waits for a bed to open up in one of the psychiatric hospitals. Now if you have insurance you might be able to go to a facility other than the state run hospital if they have a bed open which most times they do not, so mentally ill patients wait in rooms in the medical hospitals for days, sometimes a week or more and if they are on suicide watch they could be drugged and strapped to the bed so they cannot leave. 

Now if that isn't bad enough, the state psychiatric hospital is being accused of 'patient dumping'. What they say happened is the facility bought greyhound bus tickets and bussed patients out of state with no medication and no family to meet them when they got to their destination and were told to call 911 once they arrived.

A to Z Blogging Challenge: L is For Love of Candy!

Hello, my name is Mary and I'm a candyholic. lol I don't think there's a 12 step program for what I have. I don't actually eat a whole lot of it, I leave that to others..I just like looking at the pretty candy colors in the glass jars. I mean, who wouldn't smile after seeing a huge canister of pretty candy colors?

Candy jars on my living room shelf...
The right one is just half full because I do like my gumballs. I really like the way gumballs smell. Yes, I need help, I'm sniffing my gumballs.

More candy on the Living room coffee table. One is hard candies and the other is Pastel Buttercream mints. Some people call these mints butter mints and others call them after dinner mints. I call them melt in your mouth mints. 

My grandson came over and he saw the bowl of mints on the coffee table and grabbed one...then grabbed another one before anyone could stop him. He's just a year old and it was pretty funny the way he just grabbed one at a time when I thought for sure he would be throwing handfuls of them all over the place if he got his hand in the bowl. 

And let's not forget my gumballs. They might be in a jelly bean dispenser but they are definitely gumballs. lol Oh the pretty colors..
