A Major Miracle!
These cats have never been this close together except when D.C. decides to play WWW with Misty!

Iwanted to use this as a contest piece but there was no way anyone would be able to get it.
There is a light shining through the drink door on our refrigerator and it is shining through a blue water bottle onto a piece of aluminium foil.

Whoever said vampires were smart.....

Attempted to have blood work done this morning, unfortunately they had an emergency - the toilet began overflowing. The whole office was in uproar!Everyone was running around, no one could find the mop, no one could find phone number to maintainence (though they found the number to call in case of bomb threat! LOL), the Manager came in at 9 am and got on the phone with someone and declared the toilet worked the night before because she used it before she left so it someone this morning must have dropped something in it and flushed it.... blah blah blah. After 35 minutes I left. I decided it would be safer to do this at another time when the office was sterile and the workers were calm! No sense in giving a vampire a chance to take out its frustrations on me!

Urine Test -- This guy has a point! This was written by a construction worker in Fort McMurray . Read on .

I work, they pay me. I pay my taxes, and the government distributes my taxes as it sees fit. In order to earn that pay check, I work on a rig site for a Fort McMurray construction project. At any time I am required to pass a random urine test, with which I have no problem. HOWEVER, what I do have a problem with is the distribution of my taxes to people who don't have to pass a urine test.

Shouldn't one have to pass a urine test to get a welfare check because I have to pass one to earn it for them? Understand - I have no problem with helping people get back on their feet. I do on the other hand have a problem with helping someone sit on their ***, drink beer, and smoke dope.

Could you imagine how much money this country would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance check? If you agree, please pass this along, or simply delete if you don't. Hope you will pass it along though, because something has to change in this country.

PS: Julia's thoughts: I think they should do this in the Senate and Congress, too!

A Crazy day!

Prescribed by the Great Physician

The next time you feel like GOD can't use you, just remember...
Noah was a drunk
Abraham was too old
Isaac was a daydreamer
Jacob was a liar
Leah was ugly
Joseph was abused
Moses had a stuttering problem
Gideon was afraid
Samson had long hair and was a womanizer
Rahab was a prostitute
Jeremiah and Timothy were too young
David had an affair and was a murderer
Elijah was suicidal
Isaiah preached naked
Jonah ran from God
Naomi was a widow
Job went bankrupt
Peter denied Christ
The Disciples fell asleep while praying
Martha worried about everything
The Samaritan woman was divorced, more than once
Zaccheus was too small
Paul was too religious
Timothy had an ulcer..AND
Lazarus was dead!

Now! No more excuses!
God can use you to your full potential.
Besides you aren't the message, you are just the
messenger.
And one more thing...Share this with a friend or
two...
In the Circle of God's love, God's waiting to use your
full potential.



1. God wants spiritual fruit, not religious nuts.

2. Dear God, I have a problem, it's Me.

3. Growing old is inevitable .. growing UP is
optional.

4. There is no key to happiness. The door is always
open.

5. Silence is often misinterpreted but never
misquoted.

6. Do the math .. count your blessings.

7. Faith is the ability to not panic.

8. Laugh every day, it's like inner jogging.

9. If you worry, you didn't pray . If you pray,
don't worry.

10. As a child of God, prayer is kind of like calling
home everyday.

11. Blessed are the flexible for they shall not be
bent out of shape.

12. The most important things in your house are the
people.

13 When we get tangled up in our problems, be still.
God wants us to be still so He can untangle the knot.

14. A grudge is a heavy thing to carry.

15 He who dies with the most toys is still dead.


Have a great day!!! The SON is shining and he
can certainly use you!

How true!

“Everything great that we know has come from neurotics. never will the world be aware of how much it owes to them, nor above all what they have suffered in order to bestow their gifts on it.” -Marcel Proust

To "THAT" person I know who says cats are not intelligent and have no purpose in life - you know who you are...

I have two cats that I would like to send you just for a few days so you can learn that they are not only intelligent but highly intelligent and know how to conspire together to achieve their goals! You are not allowed to hurt them or I will send PeTa and a band of cat protecting angels to your house to get you - got it?

This morning the cats didn't like it that we were sleeping in a "little" late - literally - so they devised a scheme to get ME up! They tag teamed jumping up on the bed and fussing in my face, until I pushed them off the bed and rolled over. Misty was the one who would get in my face and fuss, D.C. would jump up, meow then walk his 13 lb furry self across my chest and step on every fibromyalgia tender point I have there (which is considerable). They timed their attacks until I could no longer get back to my dream which was cool (Amazing what a little sleep can do!Not only did I get sleep, I was having dreams and remembering them!). At one point I asked the cats if they wanted to go on a trip to a place where cats were highly sought after but that didn't seem to slow them down. I held out for as long as I could then finally I gave up and got up. I made them wait, though, doing everything absolutely slow and dragged out - three can play this game! They are quiet now and happy.

So MISTER, would you like me to lend you my two precious cats so you can experience pure intelligence yourself?

As for the dream, I was in Star Trek the Next Generation! (Granted I was working at 7 Eleven but I was working with Deana but it was where the USS Enterprise came and went from here on on earth! It wasn't your normal 7 Eleven, it had halodecks, movie theaters for the employees, and classrooms for schooling other Star Fleet 7 Eleven workers. Deana and I were dealing with a group of rogue teenagers who held up hostage by phone and we had to keep in them in sandwiches and drinks while they were completing their mission which we found out through Deana's abilities and some sleuthing on my part that all they were were punks thinking they were cool for their prank so Deana and I were plotting an scheme against them but thanks to the tag team I never found out what the scheme was! Grrrrrrrr
