Tuesday Teaser

101

TIME FOR CLASS STUDENTS!

DON’T FORGET TO COMMENT!

After you’ve commented, please take your seat and prepare yourself for Teaser Class.   The Professors are coming down the hallway now so EYES FORWARD…………

Good Morning Students – shall we get the Teaser started?

Today we have a GUEST TEASER for you – we think we have a good one for you to agonize over so hopefully you boned up on geography, architecture, topography and every other kind of “graphy” you could think of to be on top of your game this morning.

Before we get started, I want to remind all of you students of the rules – if you don’t follow them, everyone is not on equal footing and it’s only fair that we all give each other a chance to win a badge on Tuesdays.   Ok?

It’s fine to search for images using certain details in the photo but please don’t load the photo up in some sort of image search to try and find it the EASY way.   Life isn’t EASY so why should TEASER be?

We want a classroom full of HAPPY!

Any questions???

I haz a question….what’s for lunch today????

Now Tommy you know that the Teaser part of class is way more important than filling your tummy up with food – trust me when I say Miss Dingleberry has prepared lunch for us today so just concentrate on Teaser and the food will follow in good time!

*Whispers* Tommy got in trouble….nanny nanny boo boo……tee hee!

Before we show you today’s tricky Teaser photo, perhaps we should rev up your engines with a rowsing cheer from the Ding Dong School Cheer Team!!

You want a cheer that’s “rousing”
When we were out last night carousing?
We can barely do a leap!
We hardly had any sleep!
Well we will do our best
Then crawl off to get some rest.
Good luck to this special class
We hope you all will pass
Tomorrow we’ll feel up to cheering
We’ll be cute and so endearing.
Sorry to be such a drag
But our energy is starting to SAG!

Well I’ve had to have a little talk with you all before about too much partying – and just think what a bad example you set for class too!    You all go home, rest up and be on your game tomorrow OK?    OK!!!!

HAHAHA the Cheer Team got in trouble!!!!!

Perhaps we should go ahead and have our Security Guard come and show everyone the photo now………………please study the photos and do your best…………..and tomorrow we will let you all know who our FIRST COMMENTER(S) might have been, and who was FIRST RIGHT GUESSER, who else guessed right and who gets a GREENIE!

Hello Professors and Class – here’s your challenge for today!

WHERE were these photos taken and if you know what this structure is – tell us that too!!

Now for the part of the class that you all wait for so very patiently (usually).   Time for Miss Dingleberry’s lunch-o-the-day!

Miss D – your Profs would like two “THE WORKS” to go please!

 

GOOD LUCK FROM YOUR PROFESSORS ANGEL SAMMY AND TEDDY TOO!

Shopping Around The World

36

TIME TO FOOD SHOP HOP!

Our friend Bacon the pig hosts this hop once a month and what’s so fun about it is we wind up sharing a lot of recipes with each other AND part of the fun of that is listing the prices we pay for all the ingredients.   Since Bacon has followers and Hoppers all over the world, we get to see if what WE pay for things is any worse than anywhere else……most of the time it isn’t…….food is expensive EVERYWHERE!    The best part my Mom says though is the recipes.   So here we go – this month’s “THEME” is:

SANDWICHES

My Mom is in love with avocados and always has been.  I know not everyone likes them but they are a healthy choice and this is extra nommy with the apricot preserves in there!    This recipe makes FOUR sandwiches which may or may not feed four people depending on how hungry everyone is…….might just feed ONE (haha).

 

Toasted Avocado/cheese

Ingredients:    (Prices from our local Harris Teeter grocery store)

 

Two ripe avocados, peeled and sliced (Price:  $1.79 for two)

1/3 cup Apricot preserves (Price:  $1.69 for 18. oz. jar)

French Bread (the best but really can be ANY bread)  (Price:  $2.59 for French bread)

Havarti cheese slices (Price:  package of 10 slices $2.99)

 

Directions:

Spread four slices of bread with preserves and layer with cheese and sliced avocado.   Sprinkle with salt.    Add piece of bread to the top and butter outside of both slices.  Pop on a griddle (or in a frying pan) for 2-3 minutes on each side until the cheese is all nice and melty!

Easy Peasy………………and if you’re a nut for avocados, a very tasty way to “GET YOUR AVOCADO ON” !!

Happy Eating and Thanks to Bacon for hosting the SHOPPING AROUND THE WORLD fun!   If you click his badge at the beginning of this post, you will be magically transported to his blog……….

Hugs, Teddy

p.s.  for those of you who are looking for the Tuesday Teaser – it’s in a separate blog today – keep your eyes open!

SPARK on Monday

38

Monday again?   Yes it sure is.   Time flies………….and so do SPARKS sometimes.    SPARKS was started by a friend and blogger who is no longer blogging – Annie of McGuffy’s Reader.  We hope Annie returns one day when she’s able and ready but until then, because so many of us enjoyed sharing some inspiration on Mondays, we are still posting our SPARKS.

This one is about many things – maybe you will interpret it in a way other than what it said to me – which is about choice, about relationships, choosing friends, choosing your battles in life – MANY things can be read into this one.   So I hope it brings SOMETHING to you!

See what I mean?    There are some great “messages” in this little rhyme.    Think about it!

Love, Pam

 

Pre-Tease Monday

25

WHAT?   It’s Monday again?   Where is the time going???!!   Seems like we just had our Tell All Class for a Teaser and here we are starting all over again.    Well, let’s get this party started!

Tomorrow is the day of the week we love – we see a photo and try and figure out WHERE it was taken.   Sounds easy right?   WRONG.    Not that easy.    The photos are either sent into us by YOU (anyone who wants to be the Guest Teaser can send a photo to my Mom) OR they are ones my Mom finds or has from HER trips.   So it truly can be a photo from ANYWHERE in the world.   That’s what makes it fun.    Your job is to examine it – using the class rules of course – and be the FIRST to guess correctly.

BUT before you do that – you must remember when you arrive tomorrow at school you should LEAVE A COMMENT…………that’s right – even if it’s HI………any comment does the trick.  If you are the FIRST (or one of the firsts) you get a badge!    In fact you get a badge if you are the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER, a RIGHT GUESSER NOT FIRST, or even if you’re a WRONG GUESSER!

What’s the big deal about getting a badge??   Well no big deal really except it gives you some BRAGGING right on your own blog or with your friends – after all, not EVERYONE is brave enough to attend DING DONG SCHOOL and be taught by Professors Angel Sammy and Teddy.

Here are the only rules we have and we do hope that you will follow them – if you do, it’s more likely that EVERYONE will have an equal chance to win the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER badge.

Cheaters make us MAD!   Tee Hee

So remember, our blog post tomorrow will be at a surprise time, your job is to COMMENT then find a seat in the class and wait for us to bring our Security Guard in to show you the photo of the week.   OK?

Meanwhile I do believe our fabulous cheer team is here this morning ready to give you a bit of a “pump up the volume” kind of cheer to warm you up for tomorrow…………….

Tomorrow is our favorite day
Teaser Tuesday no time to play
Just get to class and take a seat
Ding Dong School is air conditioned – isn’t that sweet?
Our photo tomorrow is from a guest
Maybe you’ll be lucky and smarter than the rest?
You might get a badge and we’ll cheer for you
Wouldn’t it be cool if you won TWO?
Get here first and be fast to guess right
The sky’s the limit – you’ll be outta sight!

Well it isn’t often someone is a FIRST COMMENTER and also a FIRST RIGHT GUESSER but it has happened.    It’s something you can aspire to students!

Study your geography, architecture, famous sites, globe, tonight!  

Now how about some eatables courtesy of Miss Dingleberry’s cafeteria staff?    You stayed awake for Pre-Teaser class so you deserve a snack right?   Well we think so.   In fact, Miss Dingleberry said since today was a quick class and it’s not really lunch time, she’d bring her SNACK CART into class and you can grab a snack and have lunch at home later.

Whats-it gonna be kiddies???????  Hmmmmm???????

Remember – surprise time for post – comment when you get here – take a seat – it’s a GUEST TEASER!

Your Professors, Angel Sammy and Teddy

 

Sunday Selfie – Flashback

52

It’s Selfie time!    One of the “funnest” hops around and it’s hosted by our friends the Kitties Blue at The Cat On My Head.   Why not hop aboard the selfie train with us?   Just click the badge above and fill out the linky tool and you’ll be part of the fun.

You know all these years have gone by and Mom said this morning that she doesn’t think she EVER used one of Sammy’s baby photos for a Sunday Selfie so we’re doing that today.   Sammy was a cutie when he was little……….bit old paws with extra toes and mesmerizing eyes (or as Mom says “mesmereyes”).    Anyway, here’s his baby photo all jazzed up by Mom.   This is a major flashback too because it was taken in 2000  – now that’s a while ago alright!    I think he’d approve of us “flashing back” for our selfie offering today……………

Another baby picture of Sam

That was obviously the original and here’s Mom’s Lunapic artsiness applied to the same photo…………………Mom used the “SUNSHINE” art effect on Lunapic because we like to think of Angel Sammy lying in the sun puddles at the Rainbow Bridge……………….

Rest easy in the sunshine Angel Sammy   

Love, Teddy
