Original Ideas

I tend to write a lot about nostalgic things. Often I write about my family and sometimes about my travels. Today I decided to blog about something original. Yes, today I’d challenge myself to scribe something that did not involve my parents, my husband, my kids, or anyplace I’ve been.

After thinking about it for awhile I decided in a moment of whimsy to write about peanut butter. Peanut butter, that all American staple that we all either love or hate, or love but hate, or love to hate.
Peanut butter,the friend of mothers everywhere because its so kid friendly.





So I Googled peanut butter to see what trivia I could come up with. What I came up with was that, as of 9 PM Central Standard Time, 1,888,000 blogs have referenced peanut butter.

Okay maybe not so original an idea after all. I looked
around for another idea. Ha! How about safety pins?
I typed in ‘blogs about safety pins”.

423,000.








Pickles 847,000













Coffee 28,360,000










Beards 2,530,000











Suspenders 852,000







Uh… I guess each of these ideas should have one more blog added to the tally. Maybe tomorrow I’ll come up with something original. There must be something no one has written about before......Or maybe I’ll write about something nostalgic, or my family, or someplace I’ve been.


I’m going to make a hot drink and go to bed.



Hot chocolate 1,230,000


See ya down the road,

Great peanut butter picture!
You could have used the picture I sent earlier from the Gypsy Journal get-together.
