Hello again!!!

Hello again everyone! How is everyone's day going so far???

Mine is going pretty good. I am really liking the fact that I am out of work at least for a couple of weeks. No worries though as it is a self imposed vacation on my part. I got done with my data management job last week and now I am looking forward to lazing around the house for a couple of weeks and catching up with the kiddies and the hubby after such a long absence from them.

Now I will be blogging and posting more often and hopefully not have such long spaces in between posts. LOL

Have a great day!

Getting my new car today!

Yes! I am finally getting my new car today. to me anyways! lol

I am going into Williston with hubby today to return the rental car and to pick up our new vehicles today. My mom found a Dodge Intrepid for me and my hubby found a Oldsmobile or a Buick ( can't seem to remember which one he said) from a lady at work. So now we have the two vehicles that we need!

Now if we could just get the house that we need it would be all good! :)

How is everyone????

I have been neglecting this blog for a while now so I figured I had better get something done on here. :)

Summer has been shaping up to be a pretty hectic affair! We went and got my step-daughter in Wisconsin about 2 weeks ago now. That is a very long drive let me tell you! Anything over 4 hours for me is long, but when you start talking 12 hours I am in hell! lol

At least we hit the interstate for most of it so we were able to travel at 70mph instead of 65 or god forbid 55! Then you really start to feel like you are crawling! We spent about a week there while taking in the fireworks display and parade. It was fun but I really missed the kids.

We visited with family and friends and went to my brother in laws birthday party which was fun and hilarious because he had karaoke there, and most drunks just can't pass up a good karaoke session! :) When I get those pics back I will post them as they are hilarious!

Catcha Later!

Do fairies live at the bottom of your garden?

Do fairies live at the bottom of your garden?

Maybe not anymore but a recent discovery would suggest that they probably did. What appear to be the mummified remains of a fairy have been discovered in the Derbyshire countryside.

The 8inch remains complete with wings, skin, teeth and flowing red hair have been examined by anthropologists and forensice experts who can confirm that the body is genuine. X-rays of the 'fairy' reveal an anatomically identical skeleton to that of a child. The bones however, are hollow like those of a bird making them particularly light. The puzzling presence of a navel even suggests that the beings reproduce the same as humans despite the absence of reproductive organs.

Comments: BBC News has confirmed that the images and text above were created as an April Fools prank by Dan Baines, whose job is designing "strange and unique" illusions for stage magicians. The story of the mummified fairy's discovery was first posted in March 2007 on Baines' Website, Lebanon Circle Magic Company, where it attracted as many as 20,000 hits in a single day. After confessing to the hoax he sold the fake artifact on eBay for £280. Many people, he says, continue to insist it's real.

The prank calls to mind the infamous Cottingley Fairies hoax of 1917, wherein a pair of young British girls with too much time on their hands concocted fake photographs of tiny, humanoid fairies flitting through the air. The photos were vetted as authentic by none other than Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, author of the Sherlock Holmes series, and received an inordinate amount of publicity from a credulous press. It wasn't until 66 years later, in 1983, that one of the girls confessed that the fairy images had been hand-drawn and suspended in the air via hatpins to be photographed.

Gaff art

Baines' work is an outstanding example of what is called "gaff art," the use of taxidermy and prop-building techniques to create realistic-looking sideshow artifacts. One famous example was P.T. Barnum's half-ape, half-fish Feejee Mermaid, which astonished visitors to his American Museum in the mid-1800s. More recent examples, such as Juan Cabana's "Golden Mermaid" carcass, have won fame and infamy thanks to images circulated via the Internet.

Now wasn't that an interesting peace of history and hoaxs? I thought it was. ;)

Catcha later!
