I subscribed to Family Circle for years...I am SO over it! When you open a magazine, it should be fun and informative....no more. I think they all have decided to panhandle. Here's what I answered when asked why was I leaving. It won't do any good though...
"Cancelling subscription...I'm 63 and have been reading FC for all my married life (42yrs)...I'm done. Nothing but ads...ads for kissing, peeing, farting, erections, dating, eyesight, paint, bones, cancer, skin care, ice cream, vodka, chewing gum, insurance, deodorant, more dry eyes, dog food, cat food, insulin, flowers, leaky bladders, leaky bladder underwear, moisturizers, clothing, plastics, pretzels, trashbags, magic erasers, lunchables, adoptions, dog snacks, flea & tick killers, creams for cracked hands, ms medication, juice, more dog food, Alzheimer med, almonds, psoriasis, maxi pads, mini pads, sleeping pills, cat litter, bladder calmer, tea , cheese, weight loss, pork ad, fruit chillers, fake sugar, sour cream, bacon, hair color, lunch meat, chips, IKEA, and last but not least, sour cream.....And that's just in this July 2015 magazine! I saw NOTHING decent to READ! You USE to be a wonderful magazine...So many interesting articles...no more. You'll probably delete this comment...go ahead...I'm SO done wasting MY money."
And yes,42 years of it, off and on again...I liked the magazine and kept hoping they'd get the hint.
Now, YOU still wasting Your money?

I guess it was all that rain and having to stay close to home that threw me into a baking frenzy. This time, it was a Banana Cherry Pecan Pound Cake...my own invention. Turned out really moist but could have used a tiny bit more sugar. I'll remember that the next time around.
The kitties have settled in but I'm still looking for homes for them. Need to get the shots and get them fixed though. We have a dog door and once they figure it out, they might take off. I'd feel better knowing they were fixed. But in the meantime, this is Harry and he's a real sweetie...lap cat.
I have Sirus XM Radio in my car and can get it also, on any device I have. Lately, I've been listening to the Radio Classics, dial 82. Love it. Johnny Dollar, Sherlock Holmes...and tons of other oldies. The news lately has been SO depressing with no end to all the bad news and no one in the administration seems to care. Don't get me started....
Well, guess I'll get this posted and come visiting...Hope you all are having a super day.
