On a scale of one to ten, how would you rate your love/addiction for china/dinnerware?
Well, she only gave a scale from one to ten. She didn't give me a chance to tell her; mine's 10 to the 20th power!
Below show's only one window in my dining that looks out at our pool. Do you see the plates on the wall to the right? That used to be the other window. I made my husband enclose that so I could see my plates. Believe me...he didn't want to do that! Most of the pieces are Metlox. I love california pottery.

OK...even I can read these instructions! So far, so good!
I decided to trek to Walmart, buy some pillows. I thought~ this way I can wash everything!
Called the girls over~ told them to check it out!
(notice Margo...she's in the middle, she doesn't like being THAT close to Maggie)

This is a fantastic product. I know dog beds have been around forever, but this is just a new take on it. I also purchased the "Stuff Sack" and that's the new part of the bed for me.
Molly Mutts even gives you some great ideas for the stuffing. Hmmm...what should I stuff mine with? Gotta think about that. How GREEN is this idea though!!!
I can't wait to get mine. Here's a picture of my whippet, Margo, trying to decide which bed to get in. No matter what she chooses, Maggie, the weimaraner, is always crowding her out.
I decided to get the "huge" size 36"x45"x5". One bed...two dogs! I'll update you with a photo of Margo & Maggie on their new "Molly Mutt" bed when it comes.
I told them both, "your getting a new bed, and you'll be sharing!". They both stood looking at me with their tails wagging. They understood me, right? Or...because my voice was so excited, do you think they heard, "I'm giving you a biscuit!"

All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A. After the first test the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. But, as the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too; so they studied little. The second test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around the average was an F.
The scores never increased as bickering, blame, name calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else. All failed, to their great surprise, and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great; but when government takes all the reward away; no one will try or want to succeed.
Could not be any simpler than that....
