    Ah, thanks for that vital piece of information.

    What kills me is their 'World Series'. I don't know if it's world series basketball, tiddlywinks or crown green bowls, but hardly anybody else is involved. Some 'world series'. :biggrin:

    I know that it's baseball really, but don't tell anyone.

    In fact of course we know what the Super Bowl is. I've already said that I'll be rooting for the Rams on Sunday but I only say that to wind CP up since he supports the New England Patriots Patriarchs. If the truth be known I couldn't give a rat's ass who wins. :biggrin:

    ETA: I couldn't give a rat's ass who wins the English football league championship either - whether it's Man City, Liverpool, Spurs or Bournemouth (highly unlikely). There are precious few English players or managers in the top flight of the game these days and these people earn obscene amounts of money while holding the real grass-roots fans of the game in contempt. Fuck 'em.

    Yes, I'm for the Rams simply because I don't like cheats . . . The Pats have been caught out doing nasties twice to my knowledge.

    Having a few special people in my life that I can trust and who accept me exactly as I am (most of the time anyway, lol).

    Sharing life with my beautiful dogs and looking after them each day.

    The countryside ... the air, flowers and plants, trees and the feeling of endless space.

    The ocean and the seashore on a wild, windy day ... invigorating!

    Swans, geese, owls, robins, crows, magpies, parrots ... all birds.

    A warm bath or shower on a cold day and a cold one on a hot day using lovely natural soaps and skin oil.

    Music, dancing and singing, I've used music all my life to lift my mood when needed.

    ESMB ...that goes without saying really.

    Waking up to pouring rain and being all tucked up while listening to it hitting the roof.

    Crisp, air dried linen on a newly made bed, I even enjoy the process of making it.

    Natural fragrances ... various essential oils, vanilla beans, spices and freshly ground coffee.

    Walking, hiking and gazing at animals wandering freely in the fields.

    Old buildings that are full of character and charm.

    Horses, donkeys, goats and pigs ...

    Collecting salads, herbs and fruits from the garden as I need them ... and cutting roses, lavender, blue agapanthus and other flowers for my vases early in the morning.

    Reading and the feeling of being totally immersed in a book (a proper book with pages made of paper!).

    Sewing by machine and by hand.

    Baking and cooking ... when the mood takes me and not because I have to.

    Finding vintage fabrics and treasures, bringing them back to life and using them.

    Being at an age where trivia no longer concerns me (if it ever did) ... knowing who I am and that I will never again feel mentally or spiritually trapped.

    Accepting the mistakes I've made and owning them.

    Finally (after decades of working) being able to call my time my own and loving every single moment of it.

    Edit: Lol ... I think I may have slightly morphed into Julie Andrews (thank-you Stratski for pointing that out) but I don't care (much) because I meant every word and have even more to add concerning chocolate and spoons full of honey!

    Raindrops on roses
    And whiskers on kittens
    Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
    Brown paper packages tied up with strings
    These are a few of my favorite things
    Cream-colored ponies and crisp apple strudels
    Doorbells and sleigh bells
    And schnitzel with noodles
    Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
    These are a few of my favorite things
    Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
    Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
    Silver-white winters that melt into springs
    These are a few of my favorite things
    When the dog bites
    When the bee stings
    When I'm feeling sad
    I simply remember my favorite things
    And then I don't feel so bad

    And if you believe that you'll believe anything. :biggrin:

    I had to give up motorcycles due to back/neck issues... BUT

    Mountain Biking
    Swimming/Snorkel... lake, river, ocean
    Volunteering for causes I believe in.. making a difference in the real word - not on a cloud.
    And torturing fire ants... I love torturing fire ants, it gives me much pleasure to inflict pain and terror on them.

    I know I will not change the world... BUT I can enjoy the world and make a small difference while I am in it....

    These are a few of my favorite things ~*~*~*~*

    CP, any toilet bowl that cleans itself is normally revered and won't get all that much attention.

    Oh. Sorry. Different kind of super bowl?
