Positive Post Tuesday: Safety Razor

Safety Razor

Safety Razor

It's quite simple, Schick, Bic, or Gillette will not get one more dime on my shaved face. The cost of the multi-bladed razors are incredibly inflated. I saw this at Walmart the Van Der Hagen Traditional Safety Razor itself (with 5 blades) was $17.58 and I got 8 replacement blades for...$2.88 (the box said it contained 5, but it came with 8) I thought 5 for $2.88 was a good deal. Winner, winner, chicken dinner. That's $.36 a blade, wow. I notice no difference when shaving, between the multi bladed razors(I was using the Bic 3 razor system) and this single bladed razor. Now I just need to convince the ladies of the household to adopt this wonderful classic razor. Not mine of course, their own...

We will see.
Thanks for checking out this PPT and have a blessed week.

Thoughts 4 Thursday: Why???

This picture started out as a Wordless Wednesday post, but with the busy Wednesday I had yesterday, it simply did not make it. This morning I decided what I would do with it. Your thoughts on this Thursday about this photo. Why were Bethany and I sporting our wonderful hoods, tied up and everything for this shot??? Go down to the bottom of this post, and click on the "comment here" button or "x comments" (x being the number of comments already left)  and answer this question. If you don't see a comment option, click here or click on the post title and look for "Start the Discussion" or "Join the Discussion".  I not opposed to answering questions for hints.

If you answer it correctly, you will get  a great big shout out here on this blog and a signed photo of the discussed shot (Bethany is a rock star so that might be worth some big bucks someday, but probably not with my mug shot and autograph included...) Good luck!

Random: Goosebumps

I have been listening to this song and watching this video in preparations for this Saturday's Set for Church. Wow!! Give it a listen. It absolutely gives me goosebumps and has brought me to tears almost every time I listen to the spoken word towards the end. What an awesome song/video.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Monday!!

Here is the link to the video on youtube http://youtu.be/huFra1mnIVE  for those who can't see it.

If you are in the Pittsburgh or other Western Pennsylvania region and you are looking for a good weather app, the WTAE Weather App is worth checking out. Here are some screen shots:

Thoughts 4 Thursday - Pizza

I made pizza this weekend and decided to capture the steps with my phone...not sure why but, watch what happened.

Homemade dough  rolled out/tossed, docked, and formed to pan.


Pre-baking done. (btw, this part is just the start of it smellin' incredible in the house)


Crust cooled and coated. (garlic, parmesan cheese, and evoo)


Sauce, cheese, toppings (mushrooms and peppers) are on and they're in the oven...

And, it smelled so good and I was so hungry, I forgot to capture the finished product.

What happened here is so me, I have great intentions, and often adequate planning, but then forget to execute one the most important steps. Oh well, it was amazing and in my belly before I realized what I had forgot to do.

Has this ever happened to you???

Brenda would say, if you had a list this would not have happened...I dislike lists, but often need them.

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful end of week and a blessed weekend.

Random: This Happened Last-night... (#selfie #autoawesome)

We picked up the girls friends to drive them over to Youth Group, and while we waited in the church parking lot, I snapped this with my phone.

The Girls and Friends

But while attempting to snap the above shot there were several taken, and Google+ went ahead compiled them into an #autoawesome gif.
