Funky Foto Contest Week 286

OK, we’re back at it and maybe with some consistency too. I hope. This weeks question…where are these leg like things? Maybe what are they too? If you’re first to tell me that you’ll win a $30.00 gift card to Safeway. As usual, all the rules of the road are available to view on the left […]

A First

Just when I thought I’d seen it all…something new arrives! As you’ve all heard before and I’ve harped on continuously here on this blog, the market is totally crazy. That craziness seems to constantly be taken to new heights and this week it hit the stratosphere as far as I’m concerned. I have a listing […]
