Holiday Weekend AND Time to Set the clocks!

Greetings to All- Just a friendly reminder that this coming Monday is a holiday - which means you should get to the shops early on Saturday, as they will be a mob scene as people stock up to last until Tuesday when they open again!

And, we set the clocks back Saturday night, not on Novemeber 7th as in the US!

And should you be caught unprepared, you might have trick or treaters on Sunday, too!  I know my neighborhood has quite a few.  Our rule is... if the porch light is on - they're fair game!

Enjoy the long weekend!

Mr. Clean Magic Erasers!!!

I was at Handelshof yesterday and saw that they now have Magic Erasers!  (If you've never used one, you have to try them!  They are these fabulous sponges which you just wet, and can then use to scrub the walls or lots of other surfaces to get out marks which would normally require a new coat of paint!)  Of course they're called Mr. Proper or whatever Mr. Clean is called here - but they look to be the same product otherwise!!!  Just look for teh bald guy, and remember.. always test on a small, unnoticeable surface area first!  Or be like me, and just go for it with gusto...
