Random Observations from the Suburbs........

That is first and foremost...............Damn I don't like these lazy crazy days of's just too damn hot to enjoy activity!

Moving on...........I have a sorta old new's called produce and it can be purchased here........

I pass this famous for many things farm stand every day - twice a day - now mind you there are bigger and better places in the area - what I love about this place is I get to see the vegie's and fruit growing daily - there are acres of stuff here and it just marvels me to watch the stuff grow.  I want to stop my car some days and run into the fields and pick till my hearts is content..............I don't know why this is - it just is. 

I have been watching nothing but the Food Network lately - there really is nothing on 500 channels of tv.......

Why do people insist on biking and running on days like today?  Do they feel the need to be Superman/woman?  It's too DAMN HOT out there people - relax and have yourself a cold something!

Ms.Bee was going to take herself and the family to a Cape Ann beach tomorrow but it's too hot!  Again......that HOT is messing with my life too much!

If you have never heard of Cape Ann, you probably have and don't know it - It's where the Perfect Storm was filmed - Gloucester MA.  However - Ms.Bee does not wish to be a fried clam tomorrow so she will seek cooler actitivites..........she would however love to eat a few fried clams somewhere - once a year I venture to the fried side for a little taste of these babies - nothing like 'em!  Except for the stuffed oysters at in Pensacola Beach - those are yummy too!  This however, would cause me to go where AGAIN it's TOO hot!

I will sign off with this old summertime song...............on a side note - doesn't the guy on the right look like our friend Ron over at ?  Just sayin............

This is a public service announcement from Ms.Bee

Today I joined the Katie Couric Club........

It's true and I'm not afraid to tell name is Bridget and I had a colonoscopy today.  I know I know, it might be too much infomation for some of you but my hope is, like Katie Couric (who had hers done on TV!) - that those of you that may be overdue for this fun little procedure - will get on the phone and dial up your Dr - Pronto!  Here are a few statistics that might make you ponder this fun test:

Excluding skin cancers, colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer diagnosed in both men and women in the United States. The American Cancer Society's most recent estimates for the number of colorectal cancer cases in the United States are for 2011:
•101,700 new cases of colon cancer

•39,510 new cases of rectal cancer

Colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States when men and women are considered separately, and the second leading cause when both sexes are combined. It is expected to cause about 49,380 deaths during 2011.
The test was a piece of cake - I had the Michael Jackson drug of choice - propofol.  Which means - I was out cold!  However, the nice thing about propofol is you wake up very easily from it - I walked out of the hospital 2 hours later!  
The preparation - well - it wasn't the most pleasant experience but I feel it could have been worse!  I spent a few hours running to the ladies room last night - but thankfully I followed Dr's orders - ate light on Tuesday and had nothing but jello and chicken broth yesterday. 
My Dr told me I made the right choice given my family history and what not - I did have 1 polyp which was removed and will be biopsied - so given the choice that that little polyp could have sat in me and grown into some kind of cancer - I'm really glad I have checked that box off - and you should too!

OK - I admit it - I'm bored with the whole blogging thing - Maybe I have ADD and don't feel like blogging?  Maybe I'm too tired?  Too Lazy?  But lately - I just don't feel like blogging..............I find it WORK!  I also don't feel like I can attract many people................while I love the friends that do comment - I sometimes feel that they are doing it out of sympathy...............I LOVE reading other blogs - but sometimes just feel like the blogging part is too much work?  I love putting thoughts down on the "paper" but sometimes feel the need to put up pictures and videos and all the jazz that goes along with it............and I know I can I the only one?

And I'm off

Ms.Bee and the whole damn fam are heading to Cape Cod today to visit Cape Cod Nana - with a special guest appearence from Meg!  Meg and Bee will drink beer and wine and talk about Cape Cod Nana's crazy neighbors and Auntie Meg's crazy neighbors!  Oh and let me not forget MY crazy neighbors!  Does anyone see a pattern here?

Hopefully we will get to the beach later for some Mr.Sunshine - if not we'll pull out the hard stuff and cloud watch from the deck!
