My boys use to do that and I'd be driving along and HOOOOOOOONNNNNNNKKKKKK... I'd about wreck trying to get out of the trucker's way to realize that they were playing with my boys...   Then I had a car pull up close to me and honk... I looked over and she was pointing at my back window.. my boys had opened a box of tampons and were shooting them at passing cars...  The way I look at it is.. I did not abuse my kids, they abused me.

For the longest time my brother called them harpoons and tried to treat them as such. I can't figure out the fascination. It's cotton and cardboard. I thought it was just his personal affliction...

Mental note: If I ever have sons....

Laurie, I just had a vision of your son sharing something personal with you on a lengthy car ride, and you providing all sorts of wisdom like a good mom...then...HOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNKKKKKKKKK!!!

I know that didn't happen, but it makes me laugh anyway.

How did we go from Valentines to tampons?

Pen, that just might be the link between the two!

Tampon started a war at my  home growing up... My mom claimed that you could only use them after you had a baby lol ... she had no clue that I could make her a bouquet of pretty flowers

Oh, we can take any thread and go off on another subject entirely...we just have that talent!

Pen, that was hilarious but I have to admit, I cringed when I read the line at the top that said if you used the scented products, they would produce a "spring-time fresh fragrance".  I've never understood that anyway.  If you need to put scented products up there...you might want to have that thing checked!  (Sorry Luise... ;D)

Oh absolutely, I was saying sorry for saying "that thing", not for going off subject.   ;D

I'll post my recipes once I dig them out.  If you want to make the soda bread, you can either start soaking raisins now in whiskey or wait till the day before and soak them in some warm apple juice.  It's just to plump them and make them sweet and flavorful. Colcannon is a potato cabbage mash that tastes wonderful.  Soda bread is a sweet dry bread that pairs great with butter or with the flavors of the corned beef.   I don't use caraway seeds in mine, but some prefer them if it's meant to be served with more savory items.  Corned beef, I imagine, is self explanatory, but if not, it's beef soaked in a flavored brine for a long time and then cooked with cabbage, onions, potatoes, and carrots (yes, I have two different types of potatoes on St Patty's Day).  For dessert I usually make a pistachio ice cream torte (layers of ice cream and angel food cake).  Can you tell I'm excited?

Oh, many thanks for correcting the capitalization.  I must've missed an interesting time.

Clover! We made soda bread, but this time I took your idea of soaking them in Irish Whiskey. Yummy! My dad is making a second loaf for our St.  Patrick's Day party down at a boat club. Thank you fro the idea!!  :) :) :)
