    friday night i had that bad rash from the meds. the dr told me to be careful and call or go to the er if i had trouble breathing. well, that scared me so i did not even try to sleep. i sat up and watched the shopping channels.(Inothing else on) and dummy me, i gave in and ordered a spiral veggie slicer so i can make curlie fries and such. i have a french fry cutter and haven’t used in ages but i really had to have this curlie maker. oh well, it was only $20.00 and i will use it but i needed it like a hole in the floor. at least it was not an expensive item. lol

    theswe type of gadgets turn up at our local thirft stores all the time.

    My DGD wanted one of those things for Christmas, so I gave her one from Amazon.  She has used hers quite a bit!  It has two thicknesses of curly thingys, and a slicer blade.   Now my DD said she wanted one for her birthday, so I bought another one!  DD wants to use hers for zucchini pasta!

    Those shopping channels prey on the people awake at night. I remember one time I fell asleep with the TV on and woke up at 4:00 am and there was an infomercial on toting some kind of quick cooking oven that sat on the counter top. You could cook a chicken, roast, turkey whatever in mere minutes. Say what? I popped up and started to pay attention. I’m telling you, they were making some good meals in that thing. Forget how much it was, probably 99.99 in 3 easy payments, plus a bunch of utensils thrown in for the same low price of 99.99. In my half-awake stupor, I started to search for the phone and my credit card. I just had to have that! Luckily, I found neither and went to bed.

    I don’t trust those jewelry shopping shows. I always wonder if the jewelry they’re selling really is what they say it is. The prices make me wonder if the stuff is plated instead of real gold or silver, or if the gems are lab grown instead of natural. Besides that, I never see anything I would like to wear on them. And, how well is it put together? I would be leery about ordering from some of those shows.

    Many, many years ago, I brought a ring from QVC, it is a emerald and I still wear it to this day.  I am thinking about 20 years ago.  It still is in good shape, but I should say, I don’t wear my rings every day.  I don’t wear them when working in the yard or etc.  But it has been wore a amount of time.

    I never watch those channels anytime.  But, then I don’t need anything they have anyway.  My cupboards are full of cookware, and kitchen stuff.  I got rid of a lot of stuff when we redid the kitchen.  I don’t do french fries anymore.  The only time we have those is when we order fish fry and they come with ff or curly fries.  Occasionally I bake the frozen Ore Ida ones in the oven.

    I only watch qvc as far as the shopping channels go!  For one thing, I feel I am supporting  good PA corp!  It makes many jobs for ppl not just in PA but other areas like NC.  I just got the new cookware I ordered from qvc.  I never had an entire set of matching cookware before!  I am working on getting it out of the big box it came in.  Akso gives jobs to UPS employees, postal workers, etc!  Now I f igure I will have to read what I need to do for first time using the stuff!  I dont like HSN or the jewelry show.  Dont care for most of Rachel Ray cookware so that is no prob there in being tempted!  Lol!

    Talking about on line shopping.  LOL  Guess what, todays special value is on QVC.   the Keurig Coffee Maker.  I have fought buying one, but David just sold me one.  My excuse is I am getting it for my husbands birthday on the 22nd.

    Like Lizzie, I love QVC, but I try not to watch it very often, but love everything I have ever ordered.

    Good for you, BB!  I think he will just love it!  What color?  I got my Keurig from qvc, too, for myself for my bday in Feb!  My stepmom sent me a nice ck last yr in Dec. I bought a new flat screen tv for myself for Xmas, and then the Keurig coffee maker for myself for my bday!  I usually buy myself 1 “big” type of thing like that for Xmas then for the bday!  Only thing, I wish I had gotten the smaller, personal size Keurig instead of the larger one.

    LOL–I know my husband will love it as he has been wanting one for a couple years.  My son and daughter have them and he just loves the coffee.  So he was so happy when we were sitting here and I said–I’m going to get one of them for you!!  He said, what.  He has been talking about it for an hour now.
