    Hello friends. Are you tired, run - down, listless? Do you poop out at parties?
    Are you unpopular? The answer to all your problems is not presently available,
    but sometimes a simple home remedy can provide temporary relief.

    For example, I just watched

    Carol Burnett - Bust Ups, Bloopers & Blunders

    on Youtube. Cheered me up considerable. Generally one must follow
    instructions when taking meds. But here it really doesn't matter if you
    watch part one or part two first. No need to shake first. You will most
    likely shake with laughter while watching.

    Perhaps you have some similar remedies at your home: a favorite tune;
    book; snack; game; pet?

    Your responses are cordially solicited.

    I just watched the Lucy Show the other day...don't remember this show...I am guessing it is after I love Lucy...Got to watch some more of those.

    The Carol Burnett Show was definitely watched in our home...those were simpler times, weren't they?!

    Hi Alyssa, Yes, The Lucy Show is from the 60s. I Love Lucy is from the 50s.
    Lucy looks the same to me in both shows. The final series was Here's Lucy
    which ran until the mid 70s.

    I'm glad I can now watch I Love Lucy on Youtube. Gordon and I used to
    watch an episode every morning plus the news before we went to work. Now
    we are retired and I Love Lucy is on a different channel at a different time.

    Youtube now has long videos. They used to have a time limit of ten minutes.
    Now they have complete movies and operas. But they've taken away the
    Mama's Family and the Fawlty Tower episodes. What will folks do for culture

    BTW, are you and hubby Scottish or just living in Scotland? I have ancestors
    from all four corners of the United Kingdom. My surname is Scottish, and
    there is a family kilt though I don't own one.

    Hoots, Mon!

    Hi Rock --

    I posted this on your thread on the CHIT CHAT board today. Don't know if you saw it? (I know that Alyssa saw it.) I thought I'd mention it here on Homebound board, too.


    Have y'all run across the "DEAR KITTEN" videos?? They are sponsored by Purina, and only found on the net. If you go to YouTube and search Dear Kitten, you'll find them.

    This is the latest video that was posted -- for the Super Bowl:

    I LOL when I watch these videos. :p

    I hope y'all enjoy!

    Diane :D

    Hi Diane

    No, I hadn't seen any Dear Kitten videos. This one is very clever. And
    isn't the grey kitty beautiful?! Tres elegant as zee French zay.

    Definitely an improvement over Hello Kitty. Have to look at some more
    on Youtube. Hope you and Kevin are feeling OK.

    Hi Rock, I am a Canuck - originally born in Montreal, grew up in a wee place called Pembroke in Ontario, moved to British Columbia (Victoria) and then met hubby online. 15 years ago! :) We originally lived in London, but I really wasn't a fan of it. Nothing like going to sleepwith gunshots serenading you in the background. So we moved up to Scotland - where we actually scored on a lovely home (the same price of an apartment you couldn't swing a cat in, in London). Because of where I have come from, things like space, storage, having a DINING AREA, garden, peace...the most important things. We also had over 400 properties we were dealing with in Scotland, so we moved here. Although the country has not separated, we have our own money notes that are Scottish - printed by 3 different banks (and you can never know what is what because the colour of a fiver from one bank could be similar to that of £20 from another bank!!! But there is also a different legal system here for buying homes, making it more attractive to investors (well, it did at the time!).

    This is one of my favourite shows I used to watch in the 90's -it's Canadian. The guy is brilliant. If you own duct tape, the sky is the limit!!! green show luxury car

    Hey Alyssa

    I watched the Red Green video. It made me LOL, literally. Hilarious. Funny, I
    once saw his show on TV several years back. Didn't really think much of it.
    Guess I ought to check out some more of the on Youtube.

    I grew up in Minnesota, but never went to Canada till a dozen years ago or so.
    Gordon and I were visiting my son in Oregon or Washington. Can't
    remember which. He has lived in both. Anyway we visited the most
    beautiful garden in Vancouver. Might have been the VanDusen Garden.
    Beautiful Gardens, ponds, and some wildlife too. Turtles, wading birds,
    squirrels, anacondas. Oh, no. Forget the last one. I must have been thinking
    of Columbia or some place in S. America.

    Gunshots in London? I'm shocked. Even in crime-ridden Los Angeles with
    thousands of criminals (the official statistic on gang members is 40,000)
    but that was decades ago. Anyway even in LA one seldom hears gun shots.

    Never heard about Scotland's confusing paper money before. How can one
    be frugal when the money is confusiatin'?
