A few weeks ago I went to a concert with my friend Shelley. We saw The Ultimate Fleetwood Mac at the Performing Arts Centre.

The band not only perform the songs of Fleetwood Mac, they also take on the persona of each band member. The performer playing Christine McVie sang and chatted with the audience. It was almost like you were seeing the actual Fleetwood Mac. 

It is shocking to learn that Christine McVie passed away today. It feels like I just saw her not that long ago, when in fact it was her tribute artist I actually saw.

My condolences to the remaining members of Fleetwood Mac, as well as McVie's family, friends and countless fans worldwide.

And an extra note of condolence to the Ultimate Fleetwood Mac, in particular their "Christine McVie" whom I'm sure are as saddened as we are by this loss. 

Rest in Peace Christine McVie.

One Person's Trash, Is Another Person's Treasure...

he other day I noticed my neighbour was throwing out a shelf unit. I could see it very well from my window. I immediately thought of a place it would work well in my home. I had a very small shelf unit in my office area, that bigger unit in front of my neighbour's home would be ideal in place of what I had already.
Since it was late night, I told myself If that shelf is still there tomorrow, I would take it. The next day I looked out and sure enough the shelf unit was still there. I called my neighbour and asked what was wrong with it. She said it was very wobbly and she didn't have the time to try and fix it. She said I was welcome to take it. So I did.

The unit was indeed wobbly and would have to be fixed before putting anything on it. I measured it and took a pix of it. Then I headed over to Home Depot.

I had no idea exactly what I was looking for so after wandering up and down a few aisles I asked a staff member for help. I showed her the pix of the shelf. She said a piece of thin particle board would work. She said all I needed was finishing nails to hold the board to the back of the shelf unit.

She showed me the board which was $13. I said I would need it cut to fit. We went to the back of the store where large saws are located. The lady said she’d call for someone to come cut the board for me. I noticed there were some smaller scrap pieces of board in the area for only $2 a piece. Two of those would be all I need to cover the back of the unit. Another staff member came a few minutes later to cut the scrap wood.
My purchase came to $4 plus tax. No charge for cutting the boards!!! When I got home I used lots of finishing nails to stick the board onto the shelf unit. It was very sturdy now.
I then set things up in my office area. As I had envisioned, the shelf unit was a perfect fit and my stuff is no longer cluttered on a small shelf unit. I was so pleased and all for a mere $4. Below are a few pix of the unit before the board was added, with the board attached and looking great in my office with my supplies on it.
I truly love when this type of thing happens.

VIDEO | Burger King Robot Delivers... But Why?

Today in my mailbox there were coupons for Burger King. I don't usually eat there, as I don't care for their Whoppers, but I don't mind the occasional BK Original Chicken sandwich. I had a 2 for 2 coupon, so I decided to use it.

The drive thru was busy so I went inside the store to place my order. While waiting for my order I noticed something....a robot! Yep, there was a robot who took the food from the front of the restaurant over to customer tables. It even had eyes that blinked and one time it winked when a customer moved out of its way.

It was partially entertaining and part creepy.

Here's a clip I found on You Tube (it's not my video).

Oops I Did It Again!

LOL.... I crack myself up sometimes. 

Last year at this time, in addition to our regular posts, we had Battle of the Best & Scribbles Costume Contest both going on at the same time.

It was quite a lot for me to keep on top of and I remember thinking, "Okay next year you should do Battle of the Best before or after Scribbles Costume Contest."

And here we are....

Both fun features once in high gear at the same time. LMAO. I know I can handle it, I just find it ironic that I ended up with both happening simultaneously...AGAIN! I said....I crack myself up. LOL

VIDEO | Awkward Puppets at a Coffee Shop

They kinda look like Muppets, which makes this cute video even more amusing. If you've ever ordered a coffee from Starbucks, you will likely relate to this.
