Left-over thoughts from July.
#1 Do you remember JAM shorts? (They were bright, knee length, easy to sew shorts from the late 80's,-early 90's.) It was fun helping the kids pick out the fabric and sewing them.
#2 The biggest jar of SKIPPY peanut butter varies in price by $4.00 in the stores where I shop. (Wal-Mart is cheapest right now.)
#3 When we went to Australia, I packed several small bottles of starch for ironing. We had a washer and dryer in our hotel room, with laundry soap-but not dryer sheets. Our laundry came out with LOTS of static. The ironing mix that I make with starch worked great on the static.
#4 I have usually heard the spice TURMERIC pronounced TUR-mur ic. Lately on t.v. (Throwdown, Next Food Network Star...) I am hearing it pronounce tur-MER-ic.
#5 On Toddlers and Tieras (I got trapped at the train wreck one night.) the mom had her 4 year old get a chocolate facial. To brighten her skin. It was much weirder to watch than it sounds.
#6 I love aromatherapy in the shower, but am not a fan of bath gels/body washes. I like BATH & BODY WORKS variety's so, I squirt a bit in the back corner of the shower and aim the shower head. It works great and I can still use my favourite bar soap.
#7 While in California we went to dinner at PIRATE'S DINNER ADVENTURE (Buena Park). (Similar, and next door to MEDIEVAL TIMES .
The seating is bench style, facing the "ship". The menu has 2 choices, and the food is adequate at best. It is basic and uninspired.
BUT, the show was fun. It was quite a professional production with quality actors. The audience involvement was well done. My husband is quite quiet and without a dramatic bone in him, yet was comfortable with some participation. And it was so fun to see my 2 1/2 year old grandson waving his SPRITE mug as he sang, "Drink, drink, drink".
Our almost 9 year old Lincoln was taken and dressed up as part of the Royal Army that saves the day. It was fun.
Our tickets were $30.00 each and were 1/2 price tickets. (We went mid-week.) If you plan on attending, be sure you call for discount days or find coupons. (While it was worth $30.00, it was not worth $60.00.)
