Today's Update - 1 Sep 2014

Try as I might ... well, I sorta tried today anyway ... my brain went on vacation this weekend and between celebrating my birthday, Labor Day, etc. I just couldn't get my head in the game of writing.

I did manage to add to:

Thornless Garden

Zombies Aren't Real ... Are They?!

The others I will have to work on tomorrow.  If I can get pictures tomorrow I will show you the start of putting down a concrete pad that is strong enough to park on.  We're hoping to start on the next phase of one of our projects which is a steel carport.

Warning - I'm about to brag about making a great find.  Ignore if you aren't into incredible deals.  LOL!

Found a non-electric meat slicer at an estate sale on Saturday!  Excellent condition - as in looks like it was rarely if ever used - and the blade is still sharp as a cranky spinster's tongue.  Looks like the one pictured below only in even better condition plus a few more bells and whistles but minus the instruction booklet.  Fully stainless steel and a little heavier gauge as well.  And for only $15 it was something I simply could not pass up.  Right now it is sitting in pieces on a card table so that I can sanitize it since I don't know when the last time it was cleaned.  Hubby and I both love a deal that just reaches out and grabs you by the nose and holds on tight, but hubby is the truly gifted haggler in the family and I see more estate sales in our future since we had so much fun at this one.  The slicer wasn't the only deal with got.

Today's videos are for the junk food addict.  Just read an old post on another forum which led me to watching a certain movie that gave way to me looking for a way to replicate Twinkies.  If you don't get the reference don't worry about it, I'm not sure I could explain it anyway beyond the fact that zombies and Twinkies somehow intertwine.  ROFL.  Enjoy!
