Joe Did It…Huh?

 It’s the strangest thing I’ve seen on YouTube and that’s saying something! 

You can feed hens live from the internet, it’s kinda fun. 

Many years ago when I had my own small space, I had chickens and they’re never like u expect. 

Did u know that chickens prefer to roost in trees? Chickens in trees! 

U also realize that they have lots of natural predators, like every living creature would like to get hold of chickens and their eggs, and then u realize just how much dear chickens contribute to us, a lot! 

And they’re fun to raise and funny to observe, so I was thrilled to find this channel and thought to share it here. 

Not sure why it’s called Joe Did It, I guess because he invented the system where a SuperChat can feed the chickens right then and there, it’s really Live! And it’s the next best thing to being live with hens, roosters, their coop, pen, and nesting box.

Some Favorite Pics in no particular order…


Since I don’t know how to arrange these pics by category on my phone, (example, signs, flowers, bugs), 
and since they were all taken on different days and times, I’ll just do my best to explain them individually. 




This is some sort of sign for trucks. I saw it right around the time Kamala Harris became President Vise and it seemed like a private invitation. It took awhile to realize it’s a legit sign, I think, so I grabbed a pic of it. 





What was that bug that landed on my car windshield anyway? 
That's a McD's roof in the background, sky doesn't look real in pic but that sky was beautiful blue just like the pic, and the grasshopper was totally transparent.





This was a walk-thru gate that said 'Gate K, No TailGating'. Okay. 





 
This was a delivery of mine to a comfy Victorian porch in the most peaceful neighborhood I'd seen in a long time. I delivered flowers but the customer wasn't home so I texted a pic to show where they were placed. Any pic u took in that area was worthy of screen-saving but I didn't have time for that and moved on. I reassured myself that HOA fees there are prolly really annoying...

Back to Chocolate

Although it makes the least, my candy route means a lot to me 

and was the reason for this blog as a form of communication for customers. 

It was once a fairly large and reasonably unwieldy route. 

During the pandemic, the route downsized to almost nothing but I kept it and learned a valuable lesson. 

 I know each of my customers now, they know me, and communication is easy.  

So getting back to the very reason for this blog, I’m including 5 more interesting facts about chocolate: 

  1. Chocolate was once money that literally grew on trees 
  2. Chocolate wasn’t always solid, or sweet 
  3. It takes 400 cacao beans to make one pound of chocolate 
  4. Chocolate contains tryptophan, very relaxing! 
  5. The outer part of the cocoa bean has anti-bacterial properties.  
There u are, good stuff.

Happy Juneteenth!

 Happy Juneteenth Weekend! 

This holiday is celebrated in the state of Texas for many years, a formal holiday now. 

Considering that America is only 300 years old, and the United States even younger, slavery wasn’t that long ago, nothing was that long ago in America. Almost all other countries are 1000s of years old. 

In terms of formative years, America is still a teenager/young adult..! 

Take care of America, raise us right, stay positive, independent and true, pray to Gd continually, without expecting results, just blessings, can’t go wrong…

Just Saying…

 I love the old original apartment buildings. Big and friendly!

They have sequential numbers u can see from any angle, and best of all, they have the Name AND the complete full address on the front of the apartments, usually a sign or monument. 


So when GPS brings u to 2 driveways right next to each other, and there are apartment signs on each driveway with addresses, u know which one is which. 


There are a few that even share the same entrance, same driveway, similar apartment numbers. 

I can’t stand calling customers for directions, they are just hungry, sometimes even hangry, and aren’t interested in details at all. 


I’d rather stick bamboo shoots under my fingernails than call a customer for directions to their location.

 Only if they have done delivery ever in the past or present do they understand what it takes. 

The customer rarely puts the name of the apartments, and the apartments rarely put their addresses on the front of their entrances!


The worst are the newest apartment buildings that are giant blocks of concrete like prisons..! 

No name, no address, no signs. Totally locked down with gates on the doors that have magnetic keypads, no instructions, horrible! 

No visitor parking. Really hostile designers or planners in my opinion. 

It seems like delivery companies could work with apartment/condo builders to think of those things with residents in mind, just saying…

In Memoriam

In Memory of Those who Served 


Heavenly Father, on this Memorial Day, Thank you for those brave veterans who have given their all to protect this country. 

Bless them and their families. 


And give those serving the strength to cope with life after the military. 

May they know how grateful we are for their service. 

We ask you to hear our prayer, Father, Amen.

Apartments Designers’ Kudos & Budos

 KUDOS- to apartment builders and designers that still utilize the good old-fashioned sequential numbering system for apartment design. 

BUDOS- to designers who placed building numbers behind carports, roofs, or trees. 

KUDOS- to apt designers who not only place building numbers in sequence, but who also place permanent signage near entrances, and throughout huge complexes, directing drivers to correct building numbers. 

BUDOS- to apartment designers who think numbers are passé and no longer place addresses nor numbers on apartment entrance monuments.  

KUDOS- to apt designers who place visible lighting above each apt building number clearly at night (actually, I swear, I have yet to see this). 

BUDOS- to newer apt block building designers who have magnetic keypads at wire doors with no numbers, no keys nor speakers, no instructions, hint nor clue (I see this all the time).
