I'm a Winner thanks to My Repurposed Life!

I won a Wagner Power Painter (and Deck Mate) by entering a contest sponsored by the website "My Repurposed Life!"  

My Repurposed Life is one of the most creative websites I've visited. If you want to flex your imagination and create, or recreate, something totally wonderful, you must visit My Repurposed Life:

My first project for the Wagner sprayer will be to turn several old, salvaged shutters from faded red and black to beautiful Hunter Green. My husband has already pulled out the shutters and is pressure washing them for their big "Before" shots.  Guess what, guys? He isn't grumbling! Give a guy a power tool and anything can happen! Stay tuned here for updates and pictures of my project.

I'll post the "before" and "after" photos on Gail's website at:

I hope you'll visit Gail's website, but be forewarned. Many of her projects are positively addicting!   

Thanks again to Gail at My Repurposed Life,
and of course, to the great folks at Wagner!

You Know Health Care has Passed When...

You Know Health Care Reform Has Passed When…
1.  The doctor's receptionist now asks to see the political designation on your voter's registration card in lieu of insurance.

2.  Your organ donor card now has a check box called "an arm, leg, or anything else for the good of the people."

3.  Your designated Health Care Proxy or Legal Surrogate looks suspiciously like the Free World's Leader.

4.  The phrase "Over My Dead Body" is now a valid treatment option.

5.  The preferred treatment for end-of-life patients is now two interns holding a pillow.

And the number one way you know Health Care Reform Has Passed...

6.  The hospital's waiting room for everyone over 65 has been moved to the Morgue's freezer.

Smile if you're reading this, since you're still outrunning the mortician.
