Meet MaDonna You Tube Video


In the summer of 2017 Firefox sent a crew up to video me and let people get to know me. I don't think I have posted about this video or the link in a long time so thought I would do so now.  There is a face behind the themes!




Still working on updates and making new themes. Having fun doing what I do.

Have a great week. I plan to!

Raising kids in the 50's

Owl on a Stump

I was just thinking about raising kids now and the difference in raising kids in the 1950's and early 1960's.

I didn't worry about  anyone abducting one of my children when they were playing in the front yard or driveway. Halloween was a great holiday where you baked goodies and made candy for trick or treaters. You didn't have to go through their goodies to look for razor blades or worry about drugs.  When the kids came home from school, they changed their clothes and went outside to play. They didn't have tons of homework. I  didn't have to run them to dance class, music lessons, baseball, basketball, etc. They played with each other in the woods or yard. On Sundays we usually went to one of the Grandma's house for dinner. We didn't have birthday parties at restaurants or play houses. We had a small party at our house with only the best friends, not the entire class. I took the kids with me when I went shopping. The kids could wear dresses and shirts I had made to school and not be made fun of. You didn't have to wear the most popular, expensive brand out there.

I wouldn't want to raise kids now. Too much to worry about. What are they doing online? Who are they interacting with? Who are they texting on their phones? Are they popular? Since the cost of living is so high I would probably be working instead of being home when they got home from school. 

It is really too bad. Parents are run ragged and the budget usually can't keep up with "wants" rather than the "needs". 

If you  could talk to any of our 3 children now they would tell you they had a great childhood and wouldn't trade it for anything. They grew up to be "good" people, caring for others, hard workers and responsible. I am proud to say they are "our kids".

Just some thoughts while I got tired of updating themes. 

Have a good Saturday and think about it.

This is what I have come up with as of today.

Tomorrow may be something different.

Good News

Valentine Underwear

First off..I have wonderful news. My husband's surgery was a success. They didn't remove the entire kidney, just the part that had the tumor in. He came through with surprising results. No one could believe how well he did after all he has been through since last June. Three different Doctors told it it was cancer before the surgery...BUT I have read the pathology report on line and it does NOT say it was carcinoma. But we haven't heard from the Dr. yet...so I am not completely relieved. I brought him home the day after the surgery and he is actually out in his shop this morning...10 days after a 5 hour surgery! He is 84 going on 50.

The night of his surgery we had a terrible rain wind storm. I have to admit I was a bit uncomfortable being home alone. The wind caused the rain to hit the side of the house so hard I could hardly sleep. People lost power and many roads were closed, even a big slide on the freeway. Sumas is still flooded. We are kind of on a top of a "small" hill so were fine. But when I went to the hospital early the next morning the main road had water across it and cars were going through it without slowing down...I slowed way down because I didn't want to flood out my car. They call it the Super Bowl Flood!

I am still working on updating themes and making some new ones. I doubt if I will ever finish the updating. About the time I get them updated, Mozilla will change something and change them all again! Plus I have been getting some reviews that I don't understand. Several have mentioned to me that after a few hours the theme turns transparent. I have no idea what the person is talking about so if anyone else has had that happen, please email me or post on the forum. I am going to see if I can find out exactly what they are talking about. It doesn't happen for me so I am stumped. 

Going to sign off for now and get back to work. Have a wonderful Valentines Day.
