Daily Prompt: Artificial

Daily Prompt: Artificial

So what is artificial? Flowers, art, jewelry, body parts, intelligence, man-made items, love, people.

Over the years so many things that use to be grown by farmers and not worried about having GMO items near by, hand-made items knitting, crocheted, sewing quilting are now machined made, jewelry made by hand are now mass produced.

Thank goodness we still have relatives, friends, neighbors, that still create knitted, crocheted, jewelry,  sewn, quilted. Next time you are looking for a gift go to a craft show and see what is available. Look at the craftsmanship.

Do you see the same quality in the stores?

Daily Prompt: Ancient

Daily Prompt: Ancient

Hi everyone! Hope all is well.

Ancient – hmmm sounds like me, turned seventy (70) last week. I don’t feel old, ancient, being old in wisdom or experience. I still learn from people that are much younger than me, much younger. It’s nice to see some of us think alike. 

I love learning about new technology in computers and in other interests I like. It may take me awhile to get a handle on it BUT I feel great when the “light bulb” goes on above my head. 

Of course when some applications are updated, changed, improved (so they say). I shake my head and say they just make it harder not easier. daily prompt ancientWho in the world jpg_earth801ever asked for that. 

I have to say try to keep up with what is going on today. And let me tell you there is a lot. BUT I have to remember to take time and “smell the roses”, “take a breather”, “see the world thru the eyes of a child”. These are old sayings but they still work for this day and age.

It’s time I stopped boring you – have a great day! daily prompt ancient

Daily Prompt: Underground

Daily Prompt: Underground

Where are you? I know you are some where around here.

I know you have a secret hiding place, which means no one can find you.

Could you be hiding in the basement, cellar? Those are the only places that are underground in this house. Oh wait! We use to have old tunnels going from yard to yard. Did you find one that wasn’t filled in?

Could you be hiding in that strange looking costume from the 1950s? Really strange look, you might say it’s avant-garde.

Yes! I found you! I was so worried about you. Next time leave me a couple of clues, so I find you before dark.

Have a great day! Daily Prompt underground

Daily Prompt: Waiting

Daily Prompt: Waiting

Waiting, waiting, waiting and waiting!

Don’t you just love when someone tells you to be there at 5 PM and then they get there at 5:45 PM.

Do you say something to this person you have known for eons? Or do you ignore it again. Remind you they have never – ever been on time all the eons you have known them.

They will probably be late for their own funeral. (old saying)

Have a great day! Daily Prompt waiting

Daily Prompt: Urgent

Daily Prompt: Urgent

Hi everyone! Hope all is well with everyone.

We all have urgent matters,

Your urgent matter, is different from mine,

Someone is yelling for help, you naturally respond with calling 911 and move to that person, (not all people will do what you’re doing).

DO NOT PANIC!!!! Stay as calm as you can! Call 911 and explain to 911 what ever you know at that time. 911 will ask questions and you will ask the person you are assisting. (what happened, where does it hurt, were you hit, did you fall?) If they want to get up make sure they stay where they are at until the proper 911 personnel get there. If you see other people around, ask them to stand by in case you need help. Remember people do not want to get involved. Don’t feel bad, that’s just the way it is nowadays.

If this URGENT matter happens to you – what will you do?

Have a great day! Daily Prompt Urgent

Daily Prompt: Trust

Daily Prompt: Trust

WOW! Trust is a strong, very strong word these days!

How many people do you trust?

Do you trust each new person you meet right away?

If not, how long does it take you to trust someone?

If you no longer trust someone, are you still friends?

Will you ever regain your trust in that person?

When looking up trust in the dictionary the best noun version I liked was: Charge – Custody – Care!

Have a great day! Daily Prompt Trust

Information below is from Wikipedia.org.

Cabbage Night Halloween

Starting in rural Niagara Falls, Ontario, during the 1950s and 1960s, Cabbage Night (French: Nuit de Chou) referred to the custom of raiding local gardens for leftover rotting cabbages and hurling them about to create mischief in the neighborhood. Today, the night is not celebrated in Ontario but is still celebrated on the east coast commonly known as “Cabbage Night” in parts of Vermont; Connecticut; Bergen County, New Jersey; Upstate New York; Northern Kentucky; Newport, Rhode Island; Western Massachusetts; and Boston, Massachusetts.
