Marijuana drug test kit and UTI kit NY hasn't legalized Marijuana yet, so it's a good idea to keep this kit around. The UTI kit comes in handy when you are too stoned to remember to drink water, which can result in a UTI.

Yummy menu ideas for July the 4th

I was stressing out what to bring to my friend's 4th of July party. BINGO! I'm going to cook a pot of Campbell's Bean with Bacon, top it off with Pampa's asparagus cuts & tips and sprinkle it with fake bacon. Don't forget the Stars & Stripes soda pop.

My handy dandy "reacher" comes in handy when trying to 'reach' items I can't reach. This is a disabled person's most indispensable device.

Hate to admit, but Dollar Store shopping is FUN. While I won't be a convert, I understand the seduction of buying 3 bagfuls of household and party items for less than $20. But I also understand that this country can't continue down this course, where people feel they need to buy cheap because they are struggling to afford the basics in life. Maybe it won't be long before we all simplify our lives, where we buy things locally, consume less and stop staring into our phones.

Don't just wear a small pin on your lapel like the President for the 4th. Go full born!

I wish my Utopian world existed today, but it won't, so instead I will gear up for July the 4th, stop complaining for now, and be grateful for my amazing friends and the good ol' USA!

One last thing. Just in case you were wondering what my favorite purchases were at The Dollar Tree, I will clue you in. After Flossy and I left with 3 bags of goods, she took out my curlers and we hit a local bar for sangria and watch people scream at flat screen tv’s on account of the World Cup.
