Did You Know?

Hi Everyone!

Did you know Thursday 1/23/2020 is National Handwriting Day?
It sure is.

Did you know Microsoft released “comic sans” font in 1994?

Did you know there are 200,000+ not more than 260,000, this includes individual fonts not families.

Family fonts – hmm?
Times New Roman Bold and Times New Roman Italic are not the same font, but they are in the same family.
Now according to
You have family-name = times, courier, aerial, etc.
You have generic-family = serif, sans-serif, cursive, fantasy, monospace, etc.

All I can say is WOW!
Do I have a favorite font? It all depends on what I’m creating, blog, cards, letters, emails, etc.

Have a great day! Hope

Posted in Bonkers Away, unusual


Hi Everyone!

To me the flower above is unusual. To others who live in the area where it grows may find it beautiful and know it’s unusual qualities no one else knows.

Tom Jones 1965 song It’s Not Unusual.
“It’s not unusual to be loved by anyone
It’s not unusual to have fun with anyone
But when I see you hanging about with anyone
It’s not unusual to see me cry, I wanna die…”
Read more at, listen to song on or

My writing may be unusual to some. And I have to totally agree with them, of course I say “bonkers”. I’m sure some people would scratch their heads, have a look on their face wondering why would I write that way. Everyone has their own technique.
Hopefully my technique will put a smile on faces, give a laugh or two, or a tear.

Below are purple fruit and vegetables. This is very unusual to me. I hope they look the same in person as they do in the photos below. I like the color purple, but to eat purple it’s really, really unusual to me.

Have a great day! Hope

Blog Correction, Correction

Hello Everyone!

Correction for Weekly Prompts Word White blog.

Chinese New Year is actually February 25, 2020.
Correction date should be “January 25, 2020”.

I read this part from “Chinese Fortune Calendar“:
The first day of the White Rat year is not the Chinese New Year Day in Chinese Astrology. The first day of the Tiger month is the first day of the Chinese Astrology year. This day is called the Start of Spring, which is the date when the sun enters the 315th degree on the tropical zodiac. This day is around February 4, each year. 2020 Chinese White Rat starts on February 4, 2020, in China’s time zone. That means Chinese Lunar New Year is not the first day of the White Rat Year. If a baby is born before February 4, 2020, then the baby’s zodiac sign is the Pig, not Rat.

I have learned my lesson to read information more carefully.

The Street

Hi Everyone!

The street” I’m looking for is two blocks away. Found it!
Wait! That’s not the correct brick color for “the street” I’m looking for.
Making a left turn, there it is! Now that I’m closer “the street” here has the incorrect
shape I’m looking for.

Making a right turn this has to be the right, right – oh my gosh! I don’t believe it, “the street” I just turned on has the the most strange looking color!

I have taken a left, then took a right, which way should I go now? I think I’ll go up for a better view of “the street” I’m looking.
There it is finally “the street” I have been looking for!! First will take a picture so when I
land I will know the
exact spot.

Have a great day! Hope

Weekly Prompts Word White


Hi Everyone!

Do you know when Chinese New Year starts this year? It’s February 4.
This is the year of the rat. Called Chinese Male Rat or Chinese White Metal Rat aka Yang Metal Rate.
This means Chinese Lunar New Year is not the first day of the White Rat Year.
This means Chinese Lunar New Year is not the first day of the White Rat Year. 

The color white is the start of a new year.
The color white also represents pure, fresh, clean, simple and good.
The color white is also used for website backgrounds, charity and non-profit organizations.
The color white in some cultures associated with mourning and death. It means ends one life, beginning of another.

Have a great day! Hope

Posted in Bonkers Away, Something New

Something New

Hello Everyone!

There is always “something new” in the news each day as we all know.

I’m looking for “something new” or should I say “something new, new”?

Something new to me would be:
Something new, new conversions with your friends, relatives, neighbors,
Something new, found as you are going through items to give to charity and to your surprise, you discover something new you never wore.
Something new, writing a Something New blog for “Weekly”.
Something new, you spot a new flower bed starting to bloom.
Something new, is when you realize how beautiful the world is!

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
Definition – beauty cannot be judged objectively, for what one person finds beautiful or admirable may not appeal to another.

Try something new take one issue at a time, think positive, see how people respond to a disaster, see the hope on faces of people who are ready to rebuild what they lost. Watch how people take care of animals around the world.

Have a great day! Hope
