I just finished painting the last two white rooms in my house. I have finished the carpet and have moved the furniture into my basement. All thatâs left is building the bar area then the house of my dreams is complete! Kaerek Homes started this for me a year agoâ¦.I canât believe itâs already been a year! Anyway I canât stop with the projects. See, I am so in love with this house I just canât stop myself when it comes to projects and accessories around the place. I have already talked to a landscaper and heâs coming by so we can figure out what to do with the yard in springâ¦see I just canât let it sit! I want this gorgeous Kaerek home to be the bell of the ball in my neighborhood! I personally think itâs well on the way to that! Well I am off now to work on my huge three car garage and hang some TVâs in it!...I am a man after all!!! www.kaerekhomes.com 11600 W. Lincoln Avenue, West Allis (414) 321-5300
Next Thursday is National Sandwich Day. So the Land O'Frost lunchmeat company is celebrating with a survey on America's love of sandwiches.
--More than half of all Americans say they eat sandwiches for lunch . . . EVERY DAY. One in three eat their sandwiches at their desk at work most days. Only one in 16 say they regularly eat lunch sandwiches at restaurants.
--And America's favorite sandwich is . . . TURKEY. One in three adults say that's their favorite lunchmeat for sandwiches. Roast beef finished second, followed by ham.
--There's a big gender divide when it comes to roast beef, which kept it from taking the top spot in the poll. One in three men say roast beef sandwiches are their favorite, but only one in five ladies agreed.
--Half of all Americans pick potato chips as their favorite side dish for a lunch sandwich. Only one in ten opted for fruits or vegetables. (--Can you really call potato chips a side dish?)
--And one in four people prefer sweet versions of their lunch meat, like honey-flavored ham.
Do you ever wanna just go buy new clothes instead of washing what you have because wellâ¦..youâre lazy? Thatâs me latelyâ¦.but I have one major problem, I have a TON of clothes from Hollywood Threadz! I mean I probably have 7-8 loads to do! I should just run to HT and get more and do the laundry later but I am just enabling myself by doing that and making the problem a whole lot worse! I also run into the problem of having his and her closets in my new houseâ¦.but I tie them both upâ¦no room for âher.â So there is the stress in my life: 1) Laundry. 2) No room for âHer.â 3) My weight goes up and down so I have skinny and fat clothes. Oh. My. Godâ¦â¦I am a woman!!!!!!!!!! I just now realized that I am my mom, sister, ex-wife, every other female on this planet! â¦.Thatâs itâ¦Iâm outta workâ¦.gettin some Ice cream and doing some retail therapy at Hollywood Threadz today! :)

We're getting close to holiday party season, and that can only mean one thing . . . coworkers getting recklessly hammered together and doing things they'll regret.
--We've got the results here from a new survey on company Christmas parties. And this is either going to make you really nervous about your party . . . or really optimistic that it's gonna be AMAZING. Check it out . . .
--52% of people have seen someone get so drunk at a company-sponsored party that their behavior crossed over from, quote, "embarrassing to inappropriate to downright dangerous."
--26% say a coworker or supervisor shared INAPPROPRIATE DETAILS about themselves or another coworker.
--19% have actually seen someone drunkenly ARGUE or get aggressive with the boss.
--30% have seen someone flirt with a coworker or supervisor . . . and 9% have actually witnessed two coworkers engaging in drunk, SEXUAL ACTIVITY at the Christmas party.
Here are the Six Most Germ-Covered Surfaces We Touch Every Day:
I'd go ahead and buy stock in Purell right now . . . because when you hear this you're gonna want to run out and buy a year's supply of hand sanitizer.
--In a new study, researchers found the six most germ-covered surfaces we touch almost every day. And the scary part is . . . most of the time we touch them without even thinking about it, so we probably don't wash our hands afterwards.
--The researchers swabbed surfaces in Philadelphia, Atlanta, Miami, Chicago, Dallas, and L.A., looking for high concentrations of bacteria, mold, and dirt . . . which could spread the flu, or worse. Here are the most germ-infested spots . . .
--71% of gas pump handles had high concentrations of germs.
I'm an avid reader of OnMilwaukee.com. And there are all these spots poppin up on my radar now thanks to them that I have a hankering to try. Barnacle Bud's... best hidden gem of 2011 (so they say). Have you been? I'm always game for seafood, so that's on the radar. Not sure if they've announced this year's best brunch (or breakfast?) but last year Blue Egg was on the list... ever been?
Let me speak for a second about what I do know. Best pizza went to Zaffiro's. YUP! Them and Lisa's are my two favorites. If you love pizza and you're not on the east side, you are in the wrong spot my friend. Best comfort food went to Maxies. I've been there two or three times and I LOVE IT. A few runner-ups: Comet, Honeypie, and Palomino. Gotta get my butt to all of those. Most importantly, best coffee - ALTERRA!!!!! Coffee is by far the most important thing in the world. It just is. And they have the tastiest sandwiches and yeah, the greatest coffee (especially the best espresso) I've ever tasted. What qualifies me? I went to college in the coffee capital of the world: Seattle. They've got good stuff out there but Peets, Tully's, and all the other Northwest chains... Alterra is the best in the nation.
Ok, enough. If you have any spots that come to mind that you say I haven't lived until I've tried 'em... please click comment, thank you!!!
Is it weird that I have become an addict of buttonsâ¦and lil silver studsâ¦and wild patterns? This what I mean: When you girls wear those jeans that have those AMAZING pockets on your back side I canât help but stareâ¦and when they donât Iâm judging you and thinking you had such potential what a waste! But no really, get those jeans! Hollywood Threadz has Silver, Miss Me, True Religion, William Rast and that is just mentioning a FEW! Here is the problem though with the above proclamation: They also have Rock Revival, Affliction, Buffalo, etc for men at Hollywood Threadzâ¦.that not being the problem but the fact that those jeans have the same type of pockets!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh well I guess if we all have good lookin bumpers the world will be a happier placeâ¦â¦at least mine anyway. Never stanky, never crusty new and name brand used clothes at Hollywood Threadz. Renew you style!

Cut 1 vanilla bean (6 in.) in half lengthwise. With a vegetable peeler, shave 12 thin ribbons (4 to 6 in. long and about 1 in. wide) off a rinsed piece of pumpkin or banana squash. In a 1- to 1 1/2-quart jar, combine vanilla, pumpkin, 1/2 of a whole nutmeg, and 1 bottle (750 ml. or 1 qt.) vodka. Seal jar and let stand at least 4 days or up to 3 months. The flavor intensifies the longer it stands; remove flavorings once vodka tastes as strong as you like.
