    4. What a fabulous idea Betsy.

      Slight variation to that:
      I know it from the mnemonic as
      Richard Of York Gave Blood In Vain
      but Amy's is the correct one.
      But interested in your's too Betsy.
      Guess they all work OK.
      Pity we can't find Blue, Indigo and Violet veggies to complete it!! LOL
      I suppose Beetroot might be OK to as point
      and the rotten orange which needs throwing out and still residing in my bowl could be a suitable candidate for the bass section! lol

    5. haha...did you make up the one about the blood donator? haha.

      shame on you for letting the orange go bad! You should have eaten it. You need your energy, you know, for all
      those ladies you are having over for tea! haha.

    6. No I didn't make it up! lol
      Somehow that's what I remember indelibly edged into my cerebral hemosperes from about 1485! lol
      Glad something stuck there!
      BUT a good point about the blood donations.
      Yes I am ashamed that my orange went bad!!
      You are awful about my 'energy crisis' and I shall be getting quite a reputation soon shan't I?
      Better not tell you that I had a meal with another one tonight had I Ooops! That's let the cat out of the bag! LOL
      They do tend to look after me for some reason. Wonder whay?

    7. from 1485, it might have become edgy by now. haha.

      another? My stars! haha. Actually, I'm happy to see you getting out and enjoying yourself.
      And what's not to like? I'm sure they are finding the charm simply irresistible!
      Just please tell me you haven't taken any tips from that video! haha.

    8. I think it's the typo white correction fluid that does the trick! . . . . . It's a real killer!!
      Plus of course the safety pins! LOL . . . . . . . and of course the wig!!
      I think we should post that video, don't you think so anyone watching can understand what on earth we are rabbiting on about.
      Which of us do you think should do it?
      Thinking . . . .

    9. You should! It would be a riot! :)

    10. OK I'll say a girl from Ohio is plaguing the life out of me to contact a dating agency so I can find a new love of my life, but she insists that I have a serious Makeover first and has sent me a videowith a few pointers as to what I should do. Plus another lady insists I have a rinse with spiked up hair. And you can send all your readers over to see the transformation. I wonder who will arrive first. Let's see. Linda, then Amy (the quiet ones), Gloria and Suza (the inquisitive ones), Silver Fox (with or without his mask or perhaps travelling incognito as Vince), Gloria (a second visit because she just cannot keep away), next Gloria, then Suza again, then Brian to see if Eddie has adopted his Tomahawk hairdo), then Gloria again, then Betsy to keep things in order. How about that?

    11. Side splitting pain here from laughter! ha! That's all perfect except it really sounds more like friend from New Orleans would do! haha.

  7. Pepper sticks are the best! I eat them by the handful

    (Did you know there's such a thing as a purple pepper? That would have completed your rainbow...)

  8. What do they say about "great minds"...I just finished slicing red, green orange and yellow bell peppers for our chicken kabobs tonight!! PS I had to add some white onion slices too. That's also very colorful and healthy snacking!!!

    1. No kidding! Kabobs sure sound good...I'll have to put those on the menu some time soon!

      I say the white onion was a cloud to go with the rainbow!

  12. Beautiful, bright colours. We never learned a mnemonic for the colour wheel - just memorised it. I have a game on my cellphone called Blendoku which entails distinguishing and arranging colours. There are various levels and boy, it gets hard to do! I mastered simple but medium is tricky and I can't imagine the few levels that are above that. It's challenging.

  15. Funny, my dad was just talking about Roy G Biv on their last visit. He and mom discussed that indigo and violet are color words that are not used much anymore,
    Your peppers look delicious and make me want fajitas
