This week, I don't necessarily have a specific story in mind, so I thought I would simply share some random thoughts... just some things that have crossed my mind in the last few days
So, how much is too much???
While sitting in front of my lap-top this week, online of course, exploring this and that, it occurred to me... how crazy is it that most of us
|Well, I saw this & could not resist showing it...|
And at some point, Donna will say, "let's see what's on the DVR." Now, she has a spot on the couch and I have my chair that I use and each has a small end table... and on those end tables are our his & hers Kindle Fire's so we can obviously "stay in touch" while we are away from the computer. Seriously???
And then... we sit right there and turn on our Smart TV, yeah, the one we use to listen to Pandora, and that comes with a remote that has a "keyboard" on the backside of it. And after we sit down, one or both of us will say/think, "Oh man, I left my phone over there. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr." Remember the old Ma-Bell phone that used to "hang" on the wall way over there and your TV that came without a remote? I'm just sayin'...
Donna & I went out for a late night dinner a few days ago. We walked into this particular restaurant and sat down at our table and immediately started looking at the pie menu prior to our dinner menu... what does that say? The waitress came over and took our drinks order and we asked to start off with an appetizer. Now, half way through the appetizer that included chips, we asked our waitress for a "to go" box for our appetizer because we still had to order our meal
I cannot remember the last time I rode a bicycle. It has probably been at least 30 to 35 years, maybe more. Lately, I have had the itch to get a bicycle and start riding again. And then... I started looking online at bikes. Holy smokes, I don't even know where to start. If you have been out of the "bike business" for any length of time, it's a whole new world out there. It's probably worse than buying a new car. Your options are seemingly unlimited. Online, it's confusing. Go to the bike store and confusing compounds!!!
|It's all so much just a blur...|
Remember when you just walked into a store and picked out a cool looking bike for around $69 and you were done? Now... your list to choose from includes: Mountain, BMX, Comfort, Cruiser, or Hybrid. 26 inch or 29 inch. Fat tires or skinny tires. Various seats... and then, there are the Accessories for crying out loud. It's enough to make you want to take a "Spanish Pause" and go have a libation and sort it all out.
How about this... Is this you
Check this out... For a couple of months, there has been a new Shell Gas Station under construction very close to where we live. The Grand Opening will be any day now. In the last few days, workers hung the name of the really nice Convenience Store just above the front door.
|Yo Dude... Want some Gas???|
Donna & I had to laugh just a bit at the new name, certainly a first that I am aware of: "Gas Dude." Seriously??? I actually use the word "dude" quite a bit, but I have never seen it used as the name of a thriving business. Pretty funny.

Recipe's: I've got a dish for you this week that I have tried a couple of times and it is truly amazing. From Recipe Girl, a meal to fire up your grill and enjoy Chili Rubbed Pork Chops with Grilled Pineapple Salsa. Serve with your favorite side dish.
Libations Anyone???: This week, I am highlighting my "Go To" beverage of choice that has been my favorite for many years
Music: This week, my Pandora has been set on the Red Hot Chili Peppers station and I have so thoroughly enjoyed their music as well as the "like" music that Pandora matches with them. If you like a little cutting edge Alternative Rock, RHCP is worth a listen.
Market Watch: This week, Facebook is pretty much exactly where it stood one week ago at this time, closing Thursday at 31.47, still almost 7 points down.
The End: As always, I would like to say Thank You for checking in on Slu's World and seeing "what's going on." I'm really excited about next week's blog post. It's going to be about an "Amazing" turnaround. I hope you'll check it out.
Be safe, be smart, and always smile... It's "Happy Friday"
