I am hoping that the New England Patriots have another outstanding game, like they did last week! Today they are playing the St. Louis Rams and maybe Matt Cassel and the team will be able to pull off another win of 41-7?
I think they have a very good shot of doing it, but they all have to pull together and work as a team! St. Louis can be beat, and then we will be that much closer to the playoffs. They are playing at Gillette Stadium, and I wish I was there!
Now, in light of the Patriots game, I have to show you something that I found that I think is absolutely hysterical!!!! I visited this site: Really Bad Tattoos, and laughed my butt off at the one this poor person got!!!
Okay....to the right....what the patriots logo should look like.....
See, strong looking player in Patriots gear, holding a football and looking kind of mean, right????
Now for the hilarious.................
Some poor schmuck got this tattooed on his leg for all time!!!! I am still laughing so hard, even as I post this......
What the heck is this supposed to be?? First off, it looks like a monkey (no offense to monkeys mind you).....and second, what is with that pose???? It looks like his hip is dis-jointed, and his butt is sticking out in some weird angle. Also, what is with the bandages on this guys arms? Does the tattoo artist think that he needs them? The uniform is torn at the sleeves to reveal a supposedly buff arm, but only one, and the fingers look like a kid drew them!
OMG! I can't believe they think this is a Patriots tattoo???
I can tell you one thing, if this ever was put on my body anywhere......I would immediately have it removed, and never, ever...would there be a picture of it for the whole world to see!!
I can't believe it! I wouldn't have paid for it, and would have totally sued the tattoo parlor where it was done. I mean, come on, I think my grandson could draw the patriots logo better than this one!!!
Anyway, that is my humor before the game..........Go Patriots!!!!

Okay, I've just been tagged by Kay's K9s. If you don't know about Kay's K9s, I love her site! She hand crafts animals from felt in the likeness of a pet, or any photograph, and they come out simply amazing! Kay is wonderful in that she donates a portion of every sale to the Ontario SPCA and local animal shelters. Please stop by her website and see all the wonderful kritters that she has felted and the animals she sponsors.
Here is just one of the lovely creations that she made.......The real cat is on the left.......The felted creation replica is on the right...........I am absolutely amazed at the likeness she can obtain! I love how they look so real! She also has many dogs, and even bunnies on her website. And they all look soooo cute!! Kudos to you Kay!
Now this tag means that I am supposed to share 7 facts about myself that are probably not well known by too many people out there.
So here we go with my "7 Random Things About Me"
1. I have a secret addiction to reality shows, I am obsessed with some of them and lmao when something terrible happens (and it usually does!)
2. I have a huge collection of Panda Bears, all shapes and sizes. Luv 'em!
3. I make jewelry, and have a huge collection of treasures I have made that I just can't sell or give away, so I have more than I could ever wear!
4. I eat very unhealthy, in fact, I just ate cookies for dinner..... :)
5. I have a secret crush on Gordon Ramsey of Hell's Kitchen, and never miss any of his shows whether it is the USA shows, or on the BBC. (But, I would never work for him, he seems very tough~!)
6. I believe in the afterlife, and want to have personal experiences with spirits.
7. I am dating a man 10 years younger than me! (I know, shocks the hell out of me too!)
Now it is my turn to tag 7 other blogs, so here goes:
- http://www.gypsy-caravan.blogspot.com/ (a favorite of mine, and the best banner ever!)
- http://shinade.blogspot.com/ (amazing site, very inspiring~)
- http://cuteboo.com/ (just the cutest site...)
- http://happythoughtscandle.blogspot.com/ (wonderful candles!)
- http://www.cbspolyworks.blogspot.com/ (great clay site)
- http://www.primsydoodledesigns.blogspot.com/ (I love her designs!)
- http://mooseandbearcrafts.blogspot.com/ (cute little crocheted items)
Now, I would love it if you all played along, but I understand that sometimes people don't like these, and don't want to play......it's okay :) I had fun, and I hope that if you participate, that you will have fun too! I am wondering about changing some of my answers, but I think I'll just post this before I correct everything, and make it more "presentable" LOL

Well, they aren't actually "my" boys, but if you know me, you know that I am a die-hard Red Sox fan and always have been!!
The Sox did the impossible, yet again, to come back and beat the Rays last night in a history making way...
As we all sat and watched, thinking for sure that our beloved Red Sox were going to lose this game for sure, and therefore, be done for the season, being down 7-0 in the seventh inning, they rallied back and beat the Tampa Bay Rays 8-7 in the ninth inning!
The hero of this rally has to be J.D. Drew, who, with 2 outs in the ninth inning, singled and brought in "Youk" for the winning run! Kevin Youklis was on base because he singled, but when an error was made, he advanced to second base. The Rays intentionally walked Jason Bay to get to JD Drew.....big mistake!! Drew lined a single and Youk came in to score the winning run! Again, Wooooo Hooooo!
David Ortiz has to be commended for his bat also, he hit a 3-run homer in the seventh after Dustin Pedroia hit an RBI single. Then the eighth inning came, and Drew hit a 2 Run homer, and Coco Crisp hit a RBI single to tie the game... Then came the ninth inning and we were all blown away!

A big thank you to all of my Entrecard droppers out there, who continued to drop on me, even when I couldn't reciprocate.
My Entrecard has been acting up for almost a week, and I haven't been able to drop many cards at all! It was taking between 5-10 minutes for each page to load (if I was lucky), and sometimes the page wouldn't even load, I would just get an error message after waiting all that time.
So, it seems as though they have fixed the glitch, and the pages load a helluva lot faster than they were, but still not to my liking.
I have never been able to drop 300 cards at a time, but I am working towards that goal. I get too wrapped up in reading the blogs that I visit....LOL! I have my favorite blogs that I drop on and will continue to do that.
But again, a big thanks for dropping on me! :)

People all over the world today are getting together and participating in a great project known as : Blog Action Day.
Here is something you can do to help, that doesn't cost anything....you can go to this website, Free Rice , and take a quiz or two, or three, and for every answer that you get correct, they will donate 20 grains of rice to the UN World Food Program, and it will help to end hunger! What a great cause! And you can go every day! Not just today, but every day! All it will take will be a little bit of your time, and some correct answers, and you can help to end world hunger. You can learn some things here, and even change the subject to try to get the highest possible correct answers. Now, isn't that a good feeling? I just took the quiz really quick, and I donated 1,000 grains of rice! It may not seem like much, but that is a feast to some! I will be going back often to answer more questions, and do my part.
