Flannel Sheets


flannel sheets


Have you ever slept on flannel sheets?  I thought they would be miserable.  The only sheets I wanted were high thread count and pretty dang expensive.  And that was the problem,  or at least most of the problem. I needed an extra set of king sized sheets because our bed is a king and the guest room is a king, and it’s nice to have a spare.

Anyway, I went to Costco to buy a set because the last set I bought from them was very nice and affordable.  But what I got was not at all what I expected.  The fabric was completely different and the sheets were way too deep for our bed.  I should have taken them back, but I didn’t and I’ll only use them in a serious pinch. 

Then shortly before Christmas, while walking through a local store I noticed the flannel sheets on sale for $20 for a complete king set.  For $20 I had to at least try them.  Guess what?  I have  never slept better in my entire life! I climb into bed at night and it’s warm.  It’s like sleeping in a cocoon or something.  I love it!  In fact, when my Mom complained about being too cold at night I sent her a set.  She had exactly the same reaction I had.

So, if you’ve never tried flannel sheets you are missing out.

And now I’m going to bed!

Farmers vs. Monsanto


On January 10, family farmers will enter a courtroom in Washington DC to take part in the appeal of OSGATA vs Monsanto et al, a court case filed to protect farmers from genetic trespass by Monsanto’s GMO seed, which contaminates organic and non-GMO farmer’s crops and opens them up to abusive lawsuits. In the past two decades, Monsanto’s seed monopoly has grown so powerful that they control the genetics of nearly 90% of five major commodity crops including corn, soybeans, cotton, canola and sugar beets.

In many cases farmers are forced to stop growing certain organic and conventional crops to avoid genetic contamination and potential lawsuits. Between 1997 and 2010, Monsanto admits to filing 144 lawsuits against America’s family farmers, while settling another 700 out of court for undisclosed amounts. Due to these aggressive lawsuits, Monsanto has created an atmosphere of fear in rural America and driven dozens of farmers into bankruptcy.
Farmers need your voice today.  Just tell them you stand with them. 

And please spread the word..

Meet Mr. Lincoln – Made in the USA

Mr. Lincoln After watching the super helpful video link from my friend Daddy Hawk, and learning all about the construction of safes, we followed the advice of another friend Jacked Up Glock Mom and headed out to the Liberty Safe Outlet nearest to us. 
We coughed up doubled our budget and purchased the Lincoln model knowing if we didn’t, we would be wanting a bigger safe next year.  Most everyone says buy bigger than you need.  Of course they’re right.  (Guns and purses – you can never have too many, right?)
I would like to send out a big “Thank You” to everyone that commented on my gun safe post.  All of your comments were helpful, so thank you very much.
I can’t tell you how comforting it is to know that Mr. Lincoln has joined the family and will keep everything nice and secure. :)
