Carol Wright GIFTS???

Does anyone remember those magazines you used to get in the mail from "Carol Wright Gifts?" They always had such neat stuff in them. Even if it wasn't anything you were going to actually purchase, it was fun to look at. For some reason I got one in the mail today. ( I didn't even know they were still in business.) My how things have changed. Do not give this to your kids while your in the car driving to Grandmas house for dinner to keep them quiet. Good lord.
Your sailing along looking at magnetic knee braces, seer sucker draw string shorts, and the T-Fal One Egg Wonder Fry Pan, when boom, you turn the page and staring you in the face is "Totally Nude Aerobic, Yoga and Tai Chi dvd's." (featuring naked, well-toned female instructors, so you can see and follow each exercise) whaaaaat? How about "The Love Seat." (improves angles and depth of penetration for a more fulfilling experience)
Or maybe you need a Fast Acting Erection Formula. (melts in the mouth to give men a full fledged erection in mere minutes!)
I find it hard enough to watch tv anymore with all the erectile disfunction, feminine itch, and and hemorrhoid commercials that are on, now we have behind bedroom doors magazine advertisements stuck in between "Gopher Away Pellets," and the "Hair Cutting Umbrella?"

What is the world coming to? You knew I was going to say that, didn't you?

No Dye Gorgeous Easter Eggs

I know it might be a little late for you to try this out, but I just had to share it...maybe next year?
"Dying" Easter eggs, without all that messy dye! Aren't they pretty? (Yes, I snitched the photo, but since I'm directing you over to the original website, I thought it would be ok) I found this over at GoodyBlog, and while I haven't tried it, I'm sure there are alot of moms out there that would appreciate a little less mess and time in the kitchen.
(My kids are in their 20's, so unless you can dye a beer can, it ain't gunna happen.)
Instead of dye, you use silk ties! You can get those at any discount store like Goodwill, or St. Vincent De Paul for about a quarter. So cheap, and easy.
Here's what you will need:

-Silk ties
-Eggs (I have to assume uncooked eggs, since you will be boiling them for 25 minutes)
-White rags (like an old t-shirt or sheet)
-Rubber bands
-Household Vinegar

Head on over to GoodyBlog for the rest of the directions..I don't want them to think they aren't special. It looks really simple. I'd love to hear from you if you try this out!
Happy Easter :)
NOTE!!! I just found another site that used the GoodyBlog no dye eggs, and it says do not eat the eggs after they are finished!!!! Shouldn't they tell you that right off? Apparently the dye's in the ties could be toxic. Good thing to know.
