Every website lives within a domain space such as .com .net .biz and others. Introduced to satisfy the need for short memorable web addresses. CO is a new domain extension that offers you a global option for branding your online presence. For some reason they cost more than a .com.
So, I should have guessed.
Well anyway, I found Tasty.co on line and let me just say there are a ton of recipes there that are quick and easy. If you want to try the rib recipe I tried you can see it here. I made mine in the oven and had great results.
So, I'm still spinning my wheels trying to think of what scene from a book I want to depict in the Endeavourer Challenge. I MAY be onto something...for the third time.
Terry had the cataract surgery yesterday. I can tell you that I am relieved to have had it done. For a moment I was scared when they took his BP and said it was high. The Systolic rate was good but the Diastolic rate was high. But it all went off without a hitch.
I can't seem to make any headway on stitching when my day is interrupted with doctor appointments. I need to set up a new embroidery project but I need to clear my head first.
Grateful: It's hard to mention just one thing. I'll choose Harley, Terry's Min Pin. They love each other so much and I'm glad that Corey gave this dog to Terry. By now he would have driven Corey crazy for all the things that Terry just overlooks. What a dog.
Let me know if you check out Tasty.

When Terry was switching through channels the day after "the vote" he stopped on the History Channel. They were playing the Mel Gibson movie The Patriot. Well I have seen it a few times. And yes I know it is fiction loosely based on incidents that might have happened during the Revolutionary War. But there was one scene that grabbed my heart and has stayed with me. It was the scene after Mel Gibson's character's son was killed in battle. As a father, he just wanted to quit and go home. But he found a tattered flag in his son's saddlebag. The next scene shows Mel riding back to the depressed troups flying that tattered Revolutionary Flag. Everyone's spirits rose and they marched on in pride for the good of the emerging country.
So what does this have to do with the Endeavourers Challenge. Well the next theme is to depict a scene from a book. I got my mind stuck on capturing this scene from the movie. I still can't get that scene out of my mind. I just keep thinking if every single person in this country would remember why our country was formed and fight to keep our country an actual Republic maybe the division would mend..
So..this challenge is going to be a REAL challenge. I have absolutely no idea about what the subject will be, but even so I have a design kicking around on how I will portray it.
Grateful: Today I am grateful for books. I have loved reading all my life. When I was a kid I loved to walk to the library. They would only let you check out 3 books at a time. I read them pretty quickly. My mother would ridicule me telling me she was tired of seeing me with my nose in a book.
Perhaps that is why I have encouraged my daughter and my grandsons to read. Mission accomplished with my grands, not so much my daughter.
There, I have this off my mind and I can move on. Maybe I should start a new book for inspiration.
