Well, hello there! Thanks for visiting me today! Hope you are enjoying your day so far! The weather has been really nice lately, so I apologize for spending more time outside than inside blogging. I just want to sit outside with some ice tea or lemonade and people watch. It's one of my favourite things to do in the summer, especially since there are always a few shirtless guys running around! ;)

Anyway, here's today's thingamajig haiku hint:

I don't understand
why this is so popular
with Americans.

What is this?

It was a xylophone.
Did you know the word xylophone came from the Greek words "xylon" for wood and "phone" for sound, thus xylophone means "wooden sound?"

It's a fun little instrument! See for yourself:

Hello, world! Thanks for dropping by! Have I told you lately how much I appreciate your time and your comments? Well, it's true. You are too good to me. I'm not a popular blogger by any means, but I do get a nice, warm fuzzy feeling when people leave me comments. It's nice to know that there are people out there who still like to read blogs from time to time because I think blogging in general has declined in popularity. I guess it's not as cool as it used to be. It's sad to see some of the blogs that I have been following disappear. But I want  you to know, I'm not going to disappear anytime soon.

Anyway, here's today's haiku hint:

even though there is
an "app" or two on your phone
it's just not the same!

What is it?

It was a heating coil/range/whatever you want to call it.
I don't know about you, but I use  my stove on a regular basis. I cook as much I can. I hardly ever eat out. Most often than not, I prefer home-cooked meals over fast food. What about you? Do you prefer eating in or dining out?
