Writing 101, Day Eight: Cash and Carry Barn is a great find


writing-101-june-2014-class-badge-2

Go to a local café, park, or public place and report on what you see. Get detailed: leave no nuance behind.

To drive past The Cash and Carry Barn which is located at 951 Lafayette Rd, Clarksville, TN 37042 it looks like a monument store.  If you have kept driving you have missed out on a huge treat.  They are so much more. (931) 503-9921 is their number to call.

970538_522797321121457_491341756_n 971758_531594480241741_598941809_n 217464_149524175115442_4792373_n

Rather than skip the adverbs I had a better idea.  Show you.  Since they are open year round they have lots of pictures on their Facebook page.

Saturday Mornings there means fresh baked goods:

Then there is the homemade salsa, pickles, relishes, various apple butters, pie fillings and fresh baked pies.

Did I mention the fresh vegetables.  They are open year round.  They have a great green house.

Yes they work hard at the monuments.  Behind the scenes there is so much more… Go and see it for yourself when you are in the area.  Tell them that Tammye and Emmanuel sent you.

Daily Prompt: Innovative Thoughts, Tomorrows Products


Daily Prompt: The Next Big Thing

What will the next must-have technological innovation be? Jetpacks? Hoverboards? Wind-powered calculators?

Photographers, show us INNOVATIVE. 

 

clubs.ncsu.edu

 

Inventions a lot of times are created by someone who just did not like the way something worked and they had an idea of how it could be so much easier.

The average housewife finds ways to use products that are innovative in her daily routine without even realizing it.  She might take a product that was meant for one thing and use it for an entirely different purpose.  Men do the same thing in their workshops.  They might find a certain tool that if modified works much better on a project.

This is innovation this is the process of invention.

I have yet to see the slinky reinvented.   

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slinky

That was a simple invention that has been around for the decades.

Product Details

It does come in vibrant colors now and does glow in the dark.  What will be next for this product?

Product Details

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dtoys-and-games&field-keywords=slinky+toy

Will it be able to make perfect toast next?  Will the next step be a different movie theme?  This has proven to be a timeless toy.  

It is similar to the Shape O Ball from Tupperware 

Only the color has changed through the ages…it is also a timeless piece.

What would your innovative thoughts create?

Would love to hear from you.

Are You Kidding Me?


Some of the companies out there with the telemarketing techniques are just too much.

Congratulations!  You have won a free Walmart Gift card for $100.00 if you give us your credit card information we will send it to you for $3.75.
Do they really think people are that stupid to hand over their information over the phone for something like this?
Are they seriously hard of hearing when you tell them NO…I do not want it…I will not give you my information…Do NOT Call…

This guy this morning acted like he was amazed that I was saying NO.  He would not stop.  I ended up hanging up on him only because I was too kind and would not put my hubby on the phone for one of his regular routines.
I do realize that they get paid only with commission and have to be pushy.  That is not my problem.  Is this the same type of person who goes on a date and the word No does not mean No to them?

I am so glad that we are on a do not call list.  So much good for that stupid list.

I feel the urge to actually say at times Are you F@@@ing kidding Me?  If you love me so much and I have won it then you know where I live, just send it.

The problem with that is that then you are on the phone for another 15 minutes as they explain why they need to do the processing and handling charges.

Process this people…If I wanted the product, I would have bought it by now.  If it is free, it always comes with a catch.  If it is that good then just send it to me.

There, I feel better now.

Daily Prompt: First Light is a Cat in my face


Daily Prompt: First Light

by michelle w. on February 28, 2013

Remember when you wrote down the first thought you had this morning? Great. Now write a post about it.

Every day when I wake up, I have a cat staring me down or kissing my nose to wake me to feed him.  My first thought is “Time To Make The Donuts”

It is always the same routine every morning.  I let the dogs out and feed the cats.  Give fresh water in two bowls, then I am allowed to make my first cup of coffee.

coffee

 

We have had the same routine for almost 4 years here and TC and I have had that routine for a very long time.  He was not my cat originally but found his way to my side of the house each night to sleep on my pillow and would wake me to eat each morning.

My landlord never knew how he got over on my side, I did, but never told on him.

CIMG0006He is about 15 now so he gets his way all the time.  The routine will stay the same as long as he is around.  The past few days have been difficult as I have been down with a series of migraines.  Hopefully, they have ran the course and life is looking up…or into the face of a cat.

What was your first thought this morning?  Would love to hear…

Daily Prompt B+: What I did last Weekend?


Daily Prompt: B+

by michelle w. on February 23, 2013

Write about what you did last weekend as though you’re a music critic reviewing a new album.

Prelude:  Has a woman sitting at her desk asking herself what she really did last weekend.  It was only one week ago.

Track One:

Hubby goes to grocery store on post and has a panic attack before he finishes grocery list and hurries home with ribs (not on list) and half of the grocery list.  Not a great track here.  No happy dancing here.

Track Two:

Wife slowly puts away few groceries and finishes cleaning the house..Not an exciting track here at all.

Track Three:

Time to feed the animals again.  They eat three times a day in small portions. This track is a bit better.  At least a little better dancing.

Track Four:

Time to blog of course since Daily Prompt never takes a break.  This is definitely a better dance track while working.

Track Five:

This track is all about getting in a shipment from Tupperware and Scentsy that I had to inventory and stamp catalogs.  Not very exciting but very necessary since we were out of catalogs and only had Canadian Catalogs no USA ones. This track had a bonus track with it.

Track Six:

This is where Tammye Honey decided that she was hungry and made dinner.  A simple track but easy to follow.

Track Seven:

Short track of time to do the dishes.  Only wish I had a dishwasher.

Track Eight:

Time to relax and watch some tv while crocheting a light evening of quiet time snuggled in the bed with two dogs and a cat.

Hope this leaves you in a relaxed mode to be able to continue and read what other Daily Prompt Writers had to say on this subject:

Daily Prompt: What would I reinvent?


Daily Prompt: Undo

by michelle w. on February 21, 2013

If you could un-invent something, what would it be? Discuss why, potential repercussions, or a possible alternative.

Foods and medications with corn syrup additives , corn starch or modified food starch.  I would use the corn to produce gasoline.  The alternatives to corn in foods would be rice or potato starch or syrup.  There would be fewer allergies in the world and gasoline would be cheaper to make and purchase.

Can't wait to try

Can’t wait to try

Nice option to baking

Nice option to baking

Potential repercussions the nations who produce the petroleum that we are purchasing from would hate us more than they do already.

cars

By relying on our own corn for fuel, we might get out of debt.  What would our Government have to fight over.  Oh I forgot, there is still the medical issues and the gun control of the thieves who steal guns then commit crimes.  That alone should be enough to keep them busy after they finish fighting over the minimum wage hike.

pouring rain

 

Will the trickle down theory affect our prices of production of goods and the shipping of the goods to stores?  Will the increase in that minimum wage be eaten away by the increases seen in the cost of living?

ups truck

 

Perhaps if we went back to the barter system for a lot of things that we need in life things would become easier and more cost effective.

Food for thought.  What are your thoughts on this?  What would you reinvent?

DP Challenge: Weekly Writing Challenge: Mind the Gap (EBook or Hard Copy?)


Weekly Writing Challenge: Mind the Gap

by Erica on February 4, 2013

Our blogs are platforms from which we share our experiences, opinions, and views with the online world. ForMind the Gap challenges, we want to hear what you think about a divisive issue. Each challenge will include a poll where you can cast your vote along with your fellow Daily Post participants. After you vote, tell us more about how you feel by expanding on the topic in a blog post. Be sure to visit other participants’ posts to get some healthy discussion going.

To participate, tag your posts with DPchallenge and leave a link to your post in the comments. Please be sure your post has been specifically written in response to this challenge; obvious attempts to link-bait will be deleted. We’ll keep an eye on the tag and highlight some of our favorites on Freshly Pressed each Friday.

This week’s Mind the GapHow do you prefer to read, with an eReader like a Kindle or Nook, or with an old school paperback in hand? Take the poll (below) and then explain your opinion by blogging about it on your site. Tag your post “DPchallenge,” so that we can be sure to find your contribution to the challenge.

Since we are asking this question I toss it to my readers and ask which do you prefer.  I do own a Kindle but also have a library of books that I do enjoy just sitting down and reading.
Guess I am on the fence with this one as it depends what mood I am in…
on the fence
I received mine as a birthday present from my youngest daughter.  It has been used quite a lot by both my hubby and myself.
kindle
We use the Kindle when we go for a long day to doctor appointments.  That has all of my hubby’s classic books that I got from Amazon for free.  Great amusement for him for the day and not a ton of heavy books to carry around. Will I upgrade?  That is a good question.
Take The Poll and Let me know what you think..
Please Be sure to place your vote…thank you

Hey Mr UPS Man


You stop here at least once a week and this week I have not seen you… Now I know your truck by now and so does my dog…she barks and brings you a bone…

It does seem like a long day for you as some days we get packages as early as 6 AM and other days we get packages as late as 10 PM and I realize that you have started your day from Nashville, Tennessee which is quite a distance from me at least two hours away in traffic…and I do appreciate the travel to me…I really do…

I also realize that I do have different drivers due to vacation schedules and that perhaps my little package went to the wrong place…however to insist that you did give it to me and I signed for it…yesterday when I never saw you?

Please recheck your scanner and your truck as you are looking for a tiny package that is white…

It only holds a gathering foot for a sewing machine…does not sound like much unless you sew a lot of ruffles…or make a lot of pillows like I do…eleven at Christmas…thank goodness all of them were not for girls…saved on a few ruffles there….

This little bad boy from Amazon.com could save me hours of work…

So please, Mr. Please… Can you check just one more time and humor a lady who sits by her window watching for you…

Sincerely,

A sewing fanatic with a project to do…

Thank You…

Tammye Honey
