Rosie runs across America
“The idea for this journey is to run across America and to run into America and to celebrate the lives of people nobody knows. At my age, you can’t wait for the world to come to you. You have to come to the world.”
These inspirational words were uttered by a 68-year-old Welsh grandmother who is running across the USA from New York to San Francisco.
I have a mind to drop it all and join Rosie Swale Pope. I wish I’d known she was around here in Maryland the last few days doing her running; I would have loved to have seen her.

Things British people never say (except sarcastically)
There is an excellently fun list of things that British people would NEVER say doing the social media rounds.
These are my faves 🙂
19. I honestly can’t remember whose round it is.
23. I might be drunk, but I still don’t want a kebab.
28. I actually had a detox over the Bank Holiday weekend.
30. No, however you want to make my tea is fine.
43. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
I hear there was snow in London. And there was some kind of chaos.
Phooey to that, is all I can say. Get a grip, London! 😉
Real Desperate Housewife Problems
It’s shocking to read some of the issues that the real desperate housewives who live near me in suburbia-land, Howard County, have. Don’t read on if you are affected by seriously difficult and challenging situations – this one could really mess with your head…
‘My husband wanted me to put this out here. We bought one of those little watermelons from the Giant at River Hill. Cut into it the same night and it was rotten. I brought it back and exchanged it for another one. Cut into it soon after, and it was rotten. Haven’t taken it back, because I shouldn’t have to do that twice. I just won’t buy much produce from them anymore. Had an issue with them during the holidays also. So, just beware if you can’t see the inside of a fruit from Giant.’
If I hear any update on the tragic watermelon issue, I’ll be sure to let you know 😉
