Monday Stuff On the Way to Other Stuff: Home Home Home

    ...and so glad to be here. I'm still not sure what time it is -- at least my body isn't -- but it's a pleasure to be able to sleep in my own bed, and drink the Brick's coffee. (He makes the best - stop by, and he'll brew you a cup.)
     On to work, but at least we're doing it here. And not elsewhere. 

By the way, did you watch Prince Harry's and HRH Meghan's wedding? If you're female, you probably did -- or at least checked up on various tidbits about it. (Particularly Meghan's beautiful gowns.) 
     I mentioned this to the Brick. He looked at me strangely: 'Why in the world would I want to know about that??'   Gentle Readers, here is one of the major differences between the sexes. 
     Although there are always exceptions.

Treasure!  Hundreds of blog entries on all sorts of discoveries -- some you've heard of, some not. I just bumbled onto this fantastic History Blog; it has a wide variety of posts on all sorts of subjects. Including:

Catherine de Medici's hairpin -- found in a communal toilet.

A very funny -- and sassy -- excuse note written by a mom for her tardy daughter.

Eating paleo on an extremely limited budget.  (From Penniless Parenting)

Finally, some good news about a Texas kid -- who held an umbrella over an elderly woman's head while she was waiting at the bus stop.

Some very funny (and silly) memes on Prince Harry and (Princess?) Meghan's wedding.

Princess Kate is frugal?!? She wore the same coat (oh shock) she's doffed on several occasions to Harry and Meghan's wedding. (Not to mention the same shoes.) Good for her!

'A day in the life of my (supposedly) frugal stomach.'   Don't miss the reader comments -- they're some of the best part of this post. Revelations from Mr. Money Mustache.

Strainers as flowers?  Ummm... I guess so.  (From Hometalk)

Young and debt-free -- good for them!  (From NerdWallet)

'What was your lowest point, financially?'  Lots of good stuff here, including in reader comments. (Mine too, quite frankly.)  From Retire by 40.

Whatever you put into life is what you get out.  (From Diary of a Stay-At-Home Mom)

An easy strawberry pie.  (From Hundred Dollars A Month)

Celebrity wedding cakes of all types and sizes. Some are surprisingly modest...

Canceled and renewed tv shows for 2018-19.  'Designated Survivor,' one of our favorites, got the ax. (Sob)

When frugality gets in the way of living your life the best.  (From Financial Samurai)

'The best election night coverage report of all time.'  Warning: plenty of rudeness. Plenty of irony to send it down, though.

37 crazy ways to pay off debt.  Hey, if they work...  (From Making Sense of Cents)

One of the the more creepy Halloween decorations I've ever seen --

Weird stuff that works.  A classic from yours truly.

Have a great week.

Thanks, Pinterest
