Orchids and Onions is a section of the Lake Havasu Arizona newspaper. It is so fun to read---people use the section of the paper to vent or send praise to a particular business or individual. I have been to Lake Havasu three times---and I always pick up a paper to read the O&O section, even though I don't know all the businesses that are mentioned, it is entertaining. The basic premise is below....and below that....I will share a few of my own personal Orchids and Onions.
Orchids to my husband, Mr. M. for shoveling two tons of rocks yesterday into a new area of landscaping in our backyard. It was back breaking work, but he muscled through it.
Onions to the McDonald's on Main St. I had decided that Monday would be THE day. For my first ever Shamrock Shake. But your ice cream machine was down.....for the rest of the week!! No shake for me!!
Orchids to the Joplin-give-and-take sites for being incredibly entertaining. Seriously. People post the funniest stuff for sale. And they use bad grammar.
Onions to the stoplights at 26th and Joplin and Wall. Before the tornado, the light stayed red for SO long. After the tornado, a stop sign was great, because there was not a lot of traffic on 26th. The new lights stay red for so insanely long--and green for less than two cars to go through.
Orchids to Audible books. For allowing me to take my multitasking to a whole new level. I can now READ and play Two Dots on my iPad at the same time.
Orchids to the MyFitness Pal app for helping me track my food intake. The food diary really helps me keep my bad food habits in check.
Onions to the iPhone battery. I think it is designed to self destruct. I am due for a new phone in April and I'm considering the upgrade, just to improve the battery life and performance of my phone.
