Last week at the office I told a group of people that I recently had the wax sucked out of my ears. But that wasn't the oldest thing in the world. In that same conversation I mentioned that I could now hear so well I felt like the Bionic Woman--and less than half of my co-workers knew what I meant. We have the technology...

My extreme whiteness established, I do want to talk about a new miracle product that entered my life recently called Funk-Out . The good people at Funk-Out thought just maybe  that a farm wife like me might be dealing with some funk (disclosure of product gratis). Of course I have a lot of funk that I want out! I'm married to the freakin Octo-Farmer for heaven's sakes.So I tried it out.
