"Chocolate and Mood Disorders
By DIANA L. WALCUTT, PH.D
Isnít it great that we can have something that is not only good for us, but fun to use? Iím talking about chocolate! Yes sir, dark gold, pure happiness! Youíve probably heard the buzz about dark chocolate, and how itís good for your blood pressure, lowers cholesterol, prevents cancer and can fix nearly anything that is wrong with you, except that expanding waistline. (And for the record ó white chocolate is not really chocolate at all. Itís milk solids and fat. No cocoa. Nada.)" http://psychcentral.com/blog/archives/2009/04/27/chocolate-and-mood-disorders/
Well I sure don' want anything that is good for me...rofl.
I don't like dark chocolate but love milk chocolate...
DH can't eat it so I never buy it so I love it when it shows up here in a box...yeah...
Ok after reading how to win, holey moley, I have no imagination at all...oh well I will get a great box I am sure from my buddy bunny.
I love them also but can't since i have critters .
LK Are you going to join us for this one ?????? :)))
I'M Going to turn the rules on this one I'm not going to pair you all up with a partner I'm going to let my
surprise JUDGE pick who is going to send to whom this way i will not know who is sending to me .
Elfy, if I could create what I think and had the money for what my minds eye sees, I could really have a cool house, garden, and give some nice pressies, but like my minds eye, my hands, and pocket book just seem to have this on going feud..rofl. Glad to know I am not alone out here...there are some really creative gardeners on these swaps.
Here is my bunny with a few of her favorite things.
Yeah, that concrete bunny really can get with it...ROFL, about the chain, that is hanging from a hammock frame...rofl. Well besides worrying about burning the house down with a candle, DH has alergies...so that is another problem. I do use some scents upstairs cause he never goes up there.
I started on my bunny stuff, probably shouldn't have started without knowing who it is going to, but a big hint, any of us can use it...so I should be safe...
Those are memories to treasure, Susie. Wouldn't take anything for mine either and will never forget one Summer while push mowing I ran over a rotten boiled egg that had been lost at Easter...p-yew!
If any of you saw the full moon earlier this month, it was exactly liked you'd roped it with a lasso and really had pulled it in...totally amazing and was a gorgeous pinkish red here.
Years ago I babysat a friend's Lop Eared, my first and last experience with a live bunny rabbit. He was huge, had the softest gray fur, and liked to sleep at my feet. Pretty funny watching his fat self clamber up and down the stairs, one ear up and one ear down...living up to his name Flop.
Some of my Hostas have started putting out new shoots and noticed deer tracks among them yesterday. It's a little early for rabbits to start nibbling, but I feel for you. How about one that's harmless?
I understand you can use the box as the basket, or put in a basket. I'm sure your buddy would like it if you sent plants, etc. You can check their want list when you get their name to see what they are wanting. IMHO
WELL KATHY as you know it is very hard for many of us to send plants till mid to late april I Guess It is up to you as to what you have availble to send plants are great & I agree with Crit & Would not be refussed :)))
as for a basket yes the box can be the basket , you can also find like a basket that your partner can use to put a plant into it :) if you want to bake an easter friendship bread those are nice JUST SAYING YA KNOW sounds good :)
Guess I Might be hungry SMELLING The Apple pie & BananaNut bread that are in the OVEN :)
Guess i have not lost my appitight dang it.
hope you will come join us :))
Susie, I have LOST a lot of things, car keys, the car, shoes, purse, airplane tickets, time, and my mind, but I have NEVER lost my appetite...rofl. Now why would the word petite be in the word appetite...? Sorry I obviously have not found my mind yet...rofl.
Well that is me also when i see it i eat it if no one else beats me to it :) dad eat & Eats & Dose not gain a lb I Can look at it & gain . well going off to bingo with the girls back attcha in the morning .
Be Sure it is a BIG BONNET :)))) How I Wish I Could Paint :) MAMA NEVER Taught me that . I saw the cutest painted garden signs :) But couldn't Believe the cost of them .
well another long day going to go clean up the kitchen & go play cards with some friends back in the morning .
good nite all
Will have to pay attention & make sure I don't send candles or
lavender anything to those who don't like it.
Hadn't thought about making breads to include but saw some
cute cookie ideas the other day. I also purchased some new
candy molds and can't wait to try them out.
Already put a few things aside for the basket - just have to
figure out what I'm going to use for it.
Found the cutest Basket i like it , But if my partner dose not well i would not be hurt to have it back :) HEHE
I Might be just a little old fashion yet . I Can hardly wait till this one gets started :)
Well I Won a WHOLE $7.00 at cards last night :) didn't get home till after 1am so I may end up napping today :))
cris : my Mom always done a friendship cake in little loaf pans for all the church members .
well anyone want a bird this morning
My birds and cats want fed at 5 in the morning, but if I was that late getting home, I would have fed mine at that time so I didn't have to get up. Be quiet about that bread, my buddy doesn't know she is getting one from me and maybe the starter too. I've been slowly finding a few things here and there, nothing pops out at me yet, so for now I'm just doing the thinkin' part.
Hope I am the receiver on that, but I will pretend I didn't read that..rofl.
Excited to see who are buddies are.
It is so cold here, more snow predicted for tonight...funny south about 10 miles of me they got snow, but I didn't on Sunday, didn't even know it snowed south until the news came on.
Hey Gals, My basket is going to have a twist. I finished filling it today, just have to put the finishing touches on it and hope it turns out like the picture in my head. That's 's the hardest part for me. Mum's the word, and no I'm not including Mums..lol

It has been so cold and wet here, I need warmth and sunshine...went to costco today and bought a bag of hostas, 8 roots for 12.98 or something like that, ever heard of Bressingham Blue hosta? Need to look it up. Hope it isn't like those daylilies that have a mysterious name...
Excited to get our names, it will be fun...Even tho it has been cold things are really coming up...the strawberry plants I transplanted are going like gang busters.
GOOD Question FRUIT ????
Let see we have SECRET ITEM ? & NEATEST BASKET ? I DOn't think Guessing our SECRET Judge would be fair when it is the same one sending your names :) UNLESS You Can get your guesses in her
BEFORE NOON TODAY & Make your guesses here on the thread you will get 2 guess each.
Well I Have Not Heard From our SECRET JUDGE SO I DO NOT Know when We will get our Names I Hope to hear from her today . will let you know later today .
I would love to have a little Charley with a real Charley mane. Don't need the real thing ... have enough mouths to feed. Just got 2 more horses. UGH! I can see the feed bill piling up. lol We don't have much grass. I have bought seed to try and build up the pasture grass. We didn't do anything as far as seeding last summer.
LOL! I'm usually up by the crack of 9, much earlier though when the weather's nice and I can dig. We had hair appointments this morning and I had to run back to town to exchange the brakes for my ride. The guy gave me the wrong part # on Tuesday for the front, told him he owed me $10 gas money. He gave me jugs of windshield cleaner to go with the new wipers I bought. Small consolation prize but works for me.
I'm too late to guess and that's OK since mine would have been Betty.
OH So Sorry No Not Neener But GOOD TRY"S EVERYONE . Will I Hope your names will be sent out to you by this evening If you do not get your partners name dmail me or post here & I Will try to get it fixed by tomorrow .
sounds great Kris :

Sounds like a good idea (likes/dislikes list)Crit.
Susie mentioned the smell of banana bread and I'm sure
its delicious but ... for instance, I'm allergic to bananas and
anything else that has been "permeated" with its smell.
Char,, The kids get out of school on June 9th and we were wondering when after that would be a good time to visit. I do know it cannot be a Sunday or Monday. Let me know and I can set it up with thier mom.
Ps We can take some of the poo off you hands too...lol
No thanks LK. That is one I definately will not be doing. It was just not a swap I really enjoyed.
Though my baby from last year is showing stunning growth right now and has several buds!!
I found the strangest thing the other day for this swap and still have not decided if I should go back and get it. It is texturely challenged, wierd and wonderful at the same time and very deceptively simple. That said, now I have to go back and hope it is still there.
Ok No rush I Just wanted all our Baskets ON The new thread :))) HEHEHE Can hardly wait to see it susan sends great things :)))) I Have got to get mine going here My Order will be here i hope tomorrow or friday so i can get my basket out next week i hope .
