Random bits....

So after suffering a bit from writer's block I asked my hubby for some ideas.  He gave me the following random bits to blog about.... Mac and Cheese, Badgers, Movies and Sunny Days.  All great ideas but I was not in the mood to write a complete blog about each of them... so I decided to tell a bit about each. 
Mac and Cheese was introduced as a prepackaged meal in 1937 by  Kraft and to no surprise became a surprise hit during WWII when most of the women went into the workplace and needed a quick meal for their families. 

Badgers have 8 species and shelter underground in burrows called, "setts". Dachshunds were originally known as badger hounds. Some countries around the world serve badger meat, including Russia (they are suppose to have a deliciously cheap kebab). Yum!?

Movies: We watched 6 movies over the weekend. Changeling: really good but really long; How to Lose Friends and Alienate People: cute but predictable; Slumdog Millionaire: the best movie of the weekend, but super sad at the begining; Naruto: good movie for background noise (hubby's pick); Marley and Me: Cute movie but really sad at the end; and Bedtime Stories: a lot better than I thought it would be, definetly a cute one.

Sunny Days: I googled sunny days and came up with different blogs that talked about it including one about a lady that is part of a nudest colony (I didn't click on it, but it did help me decide to talk about another Sunny/Sonny) Sonny Bono was the husband part of the wildly sucessful group: Sonny and Cher.  Sonny's days were cut short on Jan. 1, 1998 when he died from injuries he sustained from a skiing accident. 

Ok so there you are... to help me get over writer's block, I have filled your minds with helpful hints about Sonny's day, Badgers, movies to see, and Mac and cheese. I hope you all have a wonderful night. :)

I really want to see Slumdog and Changeling. We rarely see any movie that one of our kids doesn't pick out. One of these days, we'll have a lot of catching up to do:)

LOL! You kill me! I love your sense of humor. THank you for enlightening me on all of these subject matters. Badgers especially. :)

haha great tidbits! I'm really wanting to see Marly & Me, especially since I have a yellow lab. I'm not looking forward to the sadness factor I've been hearing about, though.
