LIGHTNING BUGS

Spring has Sprung and the little blinkers are everywhere. I must have seen millions last night. Enjoy them while you can. They are only back for a limited time. They seem to last about 2 weeks here in my hood. So this weekend, Before it gets dark, Take a minute to Google these little guys and gather the information. Wait until dark. Turn off the outside lights and grab your lawn chairs. Sit out there and take in the seasonal blinking world around you that God created. It’s Amazing!

GLOW WORM

Shine little glow worm, glimmer, glimmer. Shine little glow worm, glimmer, glimmer. Lead us lest too far we wander. Love’s sweet voice is calling yonder. Shine little glow worm, glimmer, glimmer. Hey, there don’t get dimmer, dimmer. Light the path below, above. And lead us on to love.

Glow little glow worm, fly of fire. Glow like an incandescent wire. Glow for the female of the species. Turn on the AC and the DC. This night could use a little brightnin’. Light up you little ol’ bug of lightnin’. When you gotta glow, you gotta glow. Glow little glow worm glow.

Glow little glow worm, glow and glimmer. Swim though the sea of night, little swimmer. Thou aeronautical boll weevil. Illuminate yon woods primeval. See how the shadows deep and darken. You and your chick should get to sparkin’. I got a gal that I love so. Glow little glow worm, glow.

Glow little glow worm, turn the key on. You are equipped with taillight neon. You got a cute vest-pocket Mazda. Which you can make go slow and faster. I don’t know who you took a shine to. Or who you’re out to make a sign to. I got a gal that I love so. Glow little glow worm, glow.

GOT MILK?

Good Monday Morning Readers. Everyone drinking their dairy? I love the show The Kitchen on the Food Network. It is fun, has great tips and tricks, and wonderful recipes. I love a big tall glass of chocolate milk every now and then. Between meals sometimes. They showed me a “add in” that I had never done before. Make your fav tall glass of chocolate milk and if you like the taste of ginger add in 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoon of powered ginger. Talk about YUMMY! I love it! Plus ginger is very good for you. So next time you make your tall,cold glass of chocolate milk give it a flavor boost and spike it with ginger. You will be glad you did.
