Friday Fragment Time!

Friday, Friday, how I do love thee!

Friday happy dance by Chan and Tucker

Share your weekly fragments in a post on fridays and link up with Mrs. 444 at Half-Past Kissin' Time!

I'm keeping them short and sweet this week because I really want to read something enlightening clean spend quality time with my family go catch up on some shows I DVR'd.

Frag #1
Ebola in the U.S. Did we ever think that would happen? The "experts" are telling us it's spread through direct contact with bodily fluids of an infected person...and through surfaces that have those fluids on them, like sheets, clothing, etc.

So my questions long does the virus live on these surfaces? The Texas deputy who they suspect is sick with it now, had gone into the apartment where the first infected guy had lived. And now he's showing symptoms. The test results are supposed to come back Friday night.

Scary stuff. I think we have a false sense of security here in the U.S., like the diseases that plague third world countries won't find us. But one certainly has now. Maybe more resources should have been put towards finding an antibody for Ebola.

And what if it mutates and goes airborne? It's the stuff movies are made of, isn't it?

I just hope it doesn't happen on a Friday cause that would totally harsh my weekend.

Frag #2
Shameless plug time. I get really happy when I post 3 or more times in one week because, well, it's hard when you work full time, am I right?

My daughter Sis, the one who is in Hawaii, had her 23rd birthday last week. I posted a quick Happy Birthday post for her which she won't see for another 2 weeks. She's hiked back into the remote beach on Kauai that has come to be her home now. There is no phone or internet service there. She's coming home to me October 29th, finally!

Last Thursday I shared what happens When Good Girls Go to 'N Sync Concerts. It involves cops.

Tuesday I participated in a new (to me anyway) blog meme from Airing My Dirty Laundry called It's Okay Tuesday where you say some goofy things you did and declare them okay.

And yesterday I shared some funny texts between me and the hubby for Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop.

Whew, blogging is tiring! Ok, I'm done shameless plugging.

Frag #3
Ever wonder what it would look like if Spike TV took over the Food Network Channel? Wonder no more:

Frag #4
Lastly, just had to share these fun Halloween treat ideas from Pinterest. Oreo Eyeball pops, which are oreos dipped in white chocolate with life savers as the eyes and Monster Caramel corn with candy googly eyes in them. They'd be cute to hand out at a Halloween party. Sharing them at the end of the post because of my HTML coding ineptness.

Happy Friday, All!

Still Plugging Away,

We travel a lot and always worry about getting ill. Hand washing is still the best defense.

Remember the SARS outbreak back in 2002-2003? It was airborne and quite a number people were scared. This ebola virus appears more deadly but at least it is not airborne. I'm hoping for the best.
A busy blogger - good to see you promote the cause.
Monster Caramel corn - looks great, I love popcorn.

I'm the one person who still thinks part of the whole Ebola thing is more propaganda than anything. Maybe they'll put that on my tombstone, eh? LOL Enjoyed your fragments!

I'm taking a wait and see approach with Ebola - all while furiously washing my hands :)! Yay for all your blogging!

My mom used to make caramel corn balls to hand out for Halloween. We all know what happened to that idea, but I still make caramel corn this time of year; it's soooo good!

I wash my hands religiously. Hopefully, that's enough, though it didn't keep me from getting Mr.4444's virus, and he flies on planes to locations all over the I'm more worried. Thanks!haha

Thanks for linking up! Have a great weekend.

Living in Texas, ebola is all over the news. In fact, We have really limited our TV viewing with the kids so they don't get too scared.
I love the Halloween treats -- cute and yummy!

AiringMyLaundry said...

Awesome treat ideas.

Thanks for the mention by the way!

And Ebola freaks me out a tad. Especially because we're by Dallas.
