I've been ill for ....

the past few days. The Dr said it could be a stomach virus or I ate something bad. I just recently finished coming off of some meds and the Doc said that sometimes the body takes a few weeks to adjust to not having any of the meds in the body... oh joy! Well, I've been losing weight since a few weeks ago when the dosage got low so maybe I'll lose some more! I need to lose some, but I don't like losing it when I feel bad!


this is a corner of my kitchen which I haven't been seeing much of lately:

Vote For Adopt A US Soldier ( Adopt a US soldier )


Each year, MindComet, the interactive agency behind the CommuniCause campaign, gives back to our community by providing non-profit organizations free-of-charge agency services and donations. In the past, we’ve worked with the Orlando History Center, Habitat for Humanity, the American Cancer Society, Race for A Cure and Toys for Tots. We’re really proud of the work we’ve done.

This year, we just couldn’t pick a favorite, so we launched CommuniCause, allowing Americans to help us select the organization to receive our pro bono social media services. We are asking America to nominate and vote for their favorite charity that they’d like to see win the grand prize of a Social Media Makeover, valued at $25,000.

A winner will be randomly selected from the top ten charities that receive the most votes. Upon awarding the winner, MindComet will provide the winner with expert consulting services to help improve their social media presence and fundraising outreach. See Legal & Terms for official rules.

All you need to do is go to www.communicause.com and in the top right corner type in Adopt A US Soldier! Since we were just nominated we have to hit the voting hard and fast as voting is over the end of this month and to be in the running you have to be in the top 10 as they are picking one of the top 10 causes for the Makeover! You can only vote once per email address so we let's vote and spread the word! We are like # 872...put this on your facebook, twitter, myspace, blog, emails, work bulletins, whatever else to spread the word! A few of the other top 10 are military support based organizations...

Please make sure you confirm your vote or else it doesn't count!

Michael Jackson's ghost pushed me off of my bike!
July 18, 3:58 PM


One week ago today I broke my nose biking home from seeing a band here on the Island. It was a really good night until the faceplant. I don't remember much about it except that I was on the bike and then I wasn't. It's a mystery to me. Some folks are saying I could have been hit by a car or a deer, And while both happen regularly on the island I don't remember seeing either.

My recovery time has given me an opportunity to study the finer points of humility, a Christian virtue I had begun to research just prior to my accident. Trust me it is humbling when your nurse in the ER can't look at you without first saying. "Whoa!". And everyone assumes the worst when I tell them where I was. To set the record straight, I had a couple of drinks with the band, but that no more makes me drunk than an extra slice of cake makes me a glutton. I may be a glutton for punishment but that is it. You gotta beat the rumors down with a stick around here.

Right after the accident I looked like one of the "Thriller" zombies. It occurred to me that a co-worker and I had had a joke-a-thon about Michael Jackson on the day that he died. I know it's awful but he was such an easy target! Recently there have been some internet buzz around video claiming to show MJ's ghost at Neverland and during the Memorial show. I've seen them and I think the John Mayer video where the "ghost" appears is a trick of the eye during a scene fade. The other is more convincing showing a shadowy figure crossing a doorway at the ranch. However without a spin and a crotch grab it's hard to say whose ghost it might be.

I had already been joking that MJ's ghost pushed me off my bike in retaliation. In lieu of of other convincing causes I'm going with that one. Maybe I will learn some humility from this, seeing how now I can barely go out in public without a mask for a while. There may be something to the old saying "always speak well of the dead." Even if it is Wacko Jacko!

Blessings and pray for my face (a prayer chain I guess I should have started long ago...).

Peace.
Feeling tired this morning because the jets were flying late and there was a show of fireworks at 10pm! I understand the pilots need to practice but do they need to start at 12:30 am? zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Social Security

SOCIAL SECURITY CHANGES
It does not matter if you personally like or dislike Obama. You need to sign this petition and flood his e-mail box with e-mails that tell him that, even if the House passes this bill, he needs to veto it. It is already impossible to live on Social Security alone. If the government gives benefits to 'illegal' aliens who have never contributed, where does that leave those of us who have paid into Social Security all our working lives?

As stated below, the Senate voted this week to allow 'illegal' aliens access to Social Security benefits. Attached is an opportunity to sign a petition that requires citizenship for eligibility to that social service.


If you don't forward the petition and just stop it, we will lose all these names. If you do not want to sign it, please just forward it to everyone you know.

Thank you!
To add your name, click on 'forward'. Address it to all of your email correspondents, add your name to the list and send it on.

When the petition hits 1,000, send it to comment@whitehouse.gov

PETITION for President Obama:

Dear Mr. President:
We, the undersigned, protest the bill that the Senate voted on recently which would allow illegal aliens to access our Social Security. We demand that you and all Congressional representatives require citizenship as a pre-requisite for social services in the United States .

We further demand that there not be any amnesty given to illegal aliens, NO free services, no funding, no payments to and for illegal immigrants:

Pet Sitting again

I am back at Jellyfish Bay! I went to the edge of the river when I first got here and looked to see what I could see. I saw a bloom of baby jellyfish and they looked so sweet. I will prolly go back down there around dusk to see if the big mamjama's come around but believe me not one toe is going in that water!!!!!

An injustice has been done to someone's pet cat!

There are several sides to this issue: cats being indoor and cats being outdoor, I am for indoor especially for what I just had to do. I was out jogging in my neighborhood when I came upon a dead cat lying on the in front of someone's house in the grassy area near the street. It was obvious that it had been there for quite sometime. There was someone home. What irritates me is that if someone saw the dead cat, why didn't they have the common curteousy if not to the cat but to the people and children in the neighborhood to pick up the cat and take care of it's remains! People just don't think or they have a lack of caring in their cold hearts!

What really bothers me about this cat is that upon taking care of the remains the cat didn't look like it had been run over so maybe someone poisoned it? I've known of incidents in which people have poisoned their neighbors indoor cats when it has snuck out! People can be so cruel and heartless!

A Walmart Story

I was in Wally's the other day picking out new living room lamps, I don't remember ever getting brand new non-thrift store lamps. As I was standing there getting very frustrated trying to figure out how to put the harp (that thing that holds the lamp shade in place) on the lamp some kid comes up says "With all the experience you've had with lamps you can't figure out what to do?" Upon turning I found my son standing there laughing! "Evey lamp I've ever had came with this stupid thing with it!" Riley shook his head and proceeded to show me ... dag it, I actually did know what to do! Brain Fart! Last night I got a text message from him asking me if I wanted him to come over and show me how to plug it in! Smart so and so! LOL

You know you are getting old when you forget how to put a lamp together! Watch out, Riley, diaper changing time maybe coming sooner than you think! Bwwwwwwwwwwaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!

(Private joke which he prolly will have forgotten!)

Such beauty!

Don't you just want to go swim in that gorgeous river?

I have since renamed that river "Jellyfish Bay!"

And here is the results of swimming there!

Sometimes I just don't think!

I am at my pet sitting job which is located on a river which runs ntothe ocean. All day long I have watched people driving boats, water skiing etc, wishing I could do it too. Yes I have a nice pool to swim in but sometimes I just want to do something different. So, after dark I went to the waters edge and stepped in... ahhhh, the water was warm (warning flag should have gone off) so I dove in and started swimming. Very shortly thereafter I began to feel things rub up against me, and a second later they began to sting. All of a sudden I was surrounded by jelly fish!Duh! I hauled butt for the shore, flew out of there and dove into the pool! Yikes, major sting! I started digging around in my suit because I couldn't tell if I had any tag alongs.

Today I have calamine lotion every where.

Learn this lesson: if the water is warm don't swim in it... jelly fish love warm water, too!
