I’m back!

During the month of March I took an unannounced break from the blog.

If I’m correct, the last time that I blogged anything was somewhere around the middle of last month…..I just needed a break.

Well now I’m back!

Today we’ll be starting out with one of the block fav’s and that is Useless Friday Info.

It’s great to be back!

“Useless Friday Info”

Today we are stepping back and doing it a little “old school” as we look at some “Great Truths”.


1) No matter how hard you try, you can’t baptize cats!

2) When your Mom is mad at your Dad, don’t let her brush your hair!

3) If your sister hits you, don’t hit her back.  They always catch the second person.

4) Never ask your 3-year old brother to hold a tomato.

5) You can’t trust dogs to hold your food.

6) Don’t sneeze when someone is cutting your hair.

7) Never hold a Dust-Buster and a cat at the same time.

8) You can’t hide a piece of broccoli in a glass of milk.

9) Don’t wear polka-dot underwear under white shorts.



1) Raising teenagers is like nailing jelly to a tree.

2) Wrinkles don’t hurt.

3) Families are like fudge, mostly sweet with a few nuts.

4) Today’s mighy oak is just yesterday’s nut that held its ground.

5) Laughing is good exercise.  It’s like jogging on the inside.

6) Middle age is when you choose your cereal for the fiber, not the toy.



1) Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional

2) Forget the health food.  I need all the preservatives I can get.

3) When you fall down, you wonder what else you can do while you’re down here.

4) You’re getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster.

5) It’s frustrating when you know all the answers but nobody bothers to ask you the questions.

6) Time may be a great healer, but it’s a lousy beautician.

7) Wisdom comes with age, but sometimes age comes alone.

“Useless Friday Info”

It’s that time of the week again.

You know you love it!

Here is this week’s edition of “Useless Friday Info”!

“In 1896 Tootsie Rolls debuted.  Introduced by Leo Hirschfield of New Your he named them after his daughter’s nickname.”

“A chimpanzee can learn to recognize itself in a mirror but monkeys can’t”.

“The Blues Brothers once held the record for crashing the most police cars in a movie at 30.  The record was eventually broken by the Blues Brothers in another movie in 2000.”

“Pearls melt in vinegar.”

“A chef’s hat is shaped the way it is for a reason; its shape allows air to circulate around the scalp, keeping the head cool in a hot kitchen.”

“Heartburn; Bananas have a natural antacid effect in the body so if you suffer from heartburn, try eating a banana for soothing relief.”

Today we’re hitting the streets with this week’s dose of “Useless Friday Info”.

This week we are going to “mix it up” a bit and give you some information that is all common to coffee filters…..that’s right, coffee filters!

So here you go…..

“Cover bowls or dishes when cooking in the microwave.  Coffee filters make excellent covers.”

“Clean windows and mirrors.  Coffee filters are lint-free so they’ll leave windows sparkling.”

“Protect China.  Separate your good dishes by putting a coffee filter between each dish.”

“Filter broken cork from wine.  If you break the cork when opening a wine bottle, filter the wine through a coffee filter (But since you are a Christ follower you shouldn’t drink the wine….this advice is just in the event you “happen” to be at a place where this happens! ).

“Protect a cast-iron skillet.  Place a coffee filter in the skillet to absorb moisture and prevent rust.”

“Stop the soil from leaking out of plant pot.  Line a plant pot with a coffee filter to prevent the soil from going through the drainage holes.”

“Put a few in a plate an put your fried bacon, french fries, chicken fingers, etc on them.  Soaks out all of the grease.”
