I learned today that the building where I work, 20 Vesey Street is officially the old New York Evening Post building and it is landmarked.

(today i was trying to talk to the Geek Squad on my cell phone and it was cutting off and on and bad even when i was outside in the middle of the street with no trees above me!).

I learned last night just how intimidating I can be when I'm woke up from a sound sleep by a very loud machine at the bank next door. (some idiot decided midnight was the perfect time to rev up a generator the size of an SUV and steam clean the drivethru lanes--he's getting a piece of my mind this afternoon) The guy running the machine was almost twice my size but he backed up when I started yelling............"Do you know what the hell time of night it is? We're trying to sleep here!" He tried to say he didn't know it was a residential neighborhood, but how can he miss all these apartment buildings surrounding the bank? No way was he blinder than I am, and there's way too many bright security lights lighting up and highlighting all the buildings.

Guess my Indian blood was showing last night.......

you should take your Indian self to the museum here. LOL

yesterday I learned a new basket making technique as dome in the pacific Northwest. I'm halfway through making a miniature berry basket using, red cedar strips (from the inner bark) and waxed linen twine.

I missed the class 2 weeks ago with the twine baskets (another northwest Indian trechnique because I ha to work late, but i did take a class a few months ago using blash asj strips (that was midwest). In July I'll me taking a class in weaving horsehair baskets. (southwest) .

In all the classes we've had at the museum I've always wanted to learn basket weaving. but the weavers were traditionally against letting outsiders know their secretsa. This has certainly changed.!

It's like when I moved a huge refrigerator because my little 3 week old kitty was trapped behind it. The adreneline can make you do things you normally don't

You were like the women I sometimes hear about that lift cars off their kids. Adrenaline can do wonders! I'm glad you got the fridge moved to get your kitten out. Did that kit ever do that again?

That was Mousey, the world's cutest kitten. That was the last time he got behind the fridge, but he got into plenty other scrapes.

i learned that aloe vera really does help a lot of things! used to think it was just for burns and cuts but if you get the pure juice you can drink it. i heard its supposed to be good for your stomach if you have ulcers...will actually heal ulcers. but then i heard its good for mouths as well...well, i've been using it for a few days and its really helped. i still need to get to the dentist but it makes me feel a bit better....hoping that by the time i've saved enough money to go the infections will be gone!

Yes, I've heard that too. Between Aloe and Honey your mouth should be in good shape Jeane by the time you see the dentist.

I learned that old fashioned words like Egad and Zounds were used by people to get around Blasphemy or using swear words in the 1500's when you could be severely punished for using them
Egads was used for Ah God, Zounds was used for God's wounds .
sort of like us using shoot and freaking today. LOL.

When I was going to weight watchers we liked to go in the morning because we weighed less. don't forget you are eating during the day, and I know, that alot of people retain water dring the day.

I just learned that the mysterious slot in front of my computer is for inserting an item like a memory card and can transfer the data to the computer. This does solve my camera issue of how to get pictures onto my computer since it isn't compatible with the computer.
