return of pumplin spice

i thought i was done with this nonsense last year but they keep adding new things!

kellogs has a pumpkin spice mini shredded wheat cereal. it is not as strong as i recall the cheerios being.

and oreo has a pumpkin spice cookie, but it seems to have a bit of actual pumpkin in it. it's ok.

oreo also has an apple pie cookie, but neither target nor wal mart has it. pooh!

they also have a cookie butter one. it's not too bad. i always wanted to try cookie butter. arby's has a cookie butter shake that i want to try, but the local one doesn't have root beer any more (they're a pepsi place & we don't like pepsi) so it's unlikely that i will get to try it.

done with blog things

the post the other day about my mom's birthday is the last of the blogthings i will be doing here unless bloghthings changes back to the way they used to do results with the bbcode &.HTML.

maybe they changed it because it's a money issue? or every one is on FB & tumblr and don't do the usualy "blog" kind of things?

mom's birthday 2017

"You Are a Maverick"
You're a restless rebel with an unpredictable nature. Bright but unbridled, you tend to seek out wild experiences over new ideas. People are frustrated by your great potential, but you love your unconventional life. You're a heartbreaker. People get attached to you, and then you're gone.

Your strength: Your thirst for adventure

Your weakness: Not taking time for slow pleasures

Your power color: Hot pink

Your power symbol: Figure eight

Your power month: March

comparing T.P. brands

we've used charmin for years. fir the regular kind & then the soft when it developed the soft and strong kinds. well they went from 'double" rolls to "mega" that barely fit in the t.p. holder so it can't move when you rip off some and only get like 2 sheets. so we decided to try other brands.

the quilted northern wasn't very "quilted." my brother said maybe it was & imagine if it wasn't.

the angel soft wasn't very soft & seemed just one step above what is in your average public restroom.

the target brand, while vaguely softer than any of the above, was still on the cheap-feeling side.

so it looks like we're going back to charmin & just have to be careful when turning it the first dozen or so times.
