I was wondering what to blog about so I shouted out to my facebook friends. My cousin suggested cheese.

I started wondering what could I  blog about cheese?

I love cheese.. all kinds of cheese.

but was it blogworthy?


Legend has it that a desert nomad was transporting milk in a pouch made
from a sheep’s stomach. Eventually, the rennet in the lining of the pouch, combined with the heat of the sun, caused the milk to separate into curd and whey. Curious, and no doubt hungry, the nomad drank the whey and tasted the curd. We can safely guess that he enjoyed the experience!


If this is truth all I can say is thank you .


Here are some random cheese facts




Vieux Boulogne, it comes from France


Pule, a cheese made from donkeys sold for $650.00 a pound at a farm in Serbia .




These are among my favourites.

Processed cheese has a longer life than average natural cheese.

The most common processed cheese products are cheese slices and cheese spread.




It is my understanding that as long as a cheese is not made with rennet it is kosher. Please feel free to correct me .


I love cheese. All kinds of cheese, if you are a cheese lover like myself, check out this website.

I was talking to a friend today , and I realized this world is filled with prejudice.
Close your eyes and imagine a world without hate
Without the fear of the unknown
Without the fear of the new
Sounds wonderful doesn't it?
Maybe one day this world will find a way to become filled with love.
Today pledge to yourself that you will go out of your way to make someone feel good and accepted.
One smile
That's all.
You could be the one to change the world.

Every ones sense of humour is different. Mine is very clear.

I will laugh at just about anything !

I have been accused of being insensitive, cruel and downright rude!

Do I care?? depends on who is saying it.

If I truly value your opinion and care what you think , then damn right I care . I will watch what say and do, so as not to insult you .

But if I don't really care about your opinion , watch out because you may be bombarded with off colour jokes and lots of F-shots.

I have never laughed at someone falling down and getting hurt, I have never laughed at the special needs person. Although , one time my Dad did dump my mom out of her wheelchair at Walt Disney World , once assured she was fine, I laughed my ass off. DON'T JUDGE> you weren't there :) .

My family fondly talks of that moment often. Yep , we are weird. But we love each other and that's all that matters.

I am going to include some of my favourite humour below.

If you don't think you will like it, skip it.

Don't send me nasty comments and expect me to care.

Cause I don't.


Q: Which sexual position produces the ugliest children?
A: Ask your mother.


Q: How can you tell which is the head nurse?
A: The one with the dirty knees.


Q: What's strong enough for a man but made for a woman?
A: The back of my hand


Excuse me
A man is in a hotel lobby. As he runs to the front desk, he accidentally bumps into a woman and as he does, his elbow hits her breast.
They are both quite startled. The man turns to her and says, "Ma'am, if your heart is as soft as your breast, I know you'll forgive me."
She replies, "If your penis is as hard as your elbow, I'm in room 243."

This one came from my friend ,Hevel , over @ Kosher kola

Ariel Sharon came to Washington for meetings with George W. and for a state dinner, Laura Bush decided to bring in a special Kosher chef and offer a truly Jewish meal.

At the dinner that night, the first course served is matzo ball soup. George W. looks at this and after learning what it is called, he tells an aide that he can't eat such a gross and strange-looking brew. The aide says that Mr. Sharon will be insulted if he doesn't at least taste it. Not wanting to cause any trouble (after all, he ate sheep! 's eye in Honor of Arab guests), George W. gingerly lowers his spoon into the bowl and retrieves a piece of matzo ball and some broth.

He hesitates, then swallows. A big grin appears on his face. He finds that he really likes it, so he digs right in and finishes the whole bowl.

"That was delicious," Bush says to Sharon. "Do you Jews eat any other part of the Matzo, or just the balls?"

I am on a mission.

A mission to organize my home.

OK, not so much a mission as an obsession.

It all started a couple of years ago when I found cute storage bins at a thrift shop.

"I gotta have these to store toys in". Into the cart they went.

So the obsession began. I pursued every organization blog out there .

Re-arranged rooms to the point that my husband was ready to scream.

I am never 100% satisfied with how I have organized. I am always making changes and adjustments.

I am hoping one day to find the perfect combination or organization and functionality for my home.

Stainless steel buckets, wicker baskets, plastic file folders, glass jars.

Forget roses, these are the things that get my heart racing!

Upcycling an old milk crate into a cute little storage ottoman?? Yes please!

Old mint tins to hold elastic bands? yup

Hello my name is Michelle and I am addicted to organizing.

and I am not sure I want help!

The Evil of Lego's

Have you ever gotten up in the middle of the night to get a drink of water and felt excruciating pain in the bottom of your foot?

If you have looked down and seen a lovely piece of molded plastic , then you joined the ranks of many families who have legomaniacs in their home.

Myself ,I, have a not only a son who is a legomaniac but a husband as well.

Many a day I have been tempted to throw all of those building blocks away.

Countless pieces sucked up into the vacuum, swept into the dustpan and cats playing with them

I have created many different storage systems for my legofans. But for them to work you need to actually put them away .

Not only are they dangerous to my feet's health,, they are expensive.

Just what i spent at Christmas I could have bought myself some Christian Loubiton shoes.

I am not kidding those little plastic suckers are expensive!
I will continue to vent about the cost and pain of lego, but because  I love my boys i will continue to buy it.
