WITHDRAWALS!!!

Guys and cals I can't stand this anymore! I MUST BLOG!!!! LOL> Have gone through last 2 Sundays papers and just don't see anything in the budget--(FREE) LOL) that will do us right now. I do ask for your prayers that God will help me find a way to work some overtime or something, as very very soon this will hold me up from enrollment in Winter classes. I must take these rinky dink BS classes to get them out of the way (my prerequisites) and only then can I get on the WAITING LIST!!!

I am sooo frustrated. Things are going so well in my marriage, at work, faith etc...and I hit this brick wall when it comes to classes. I feel sure this is the direction I'm supposed to go in but door after door gets slammed in my face!

Oh, well- lets stay positive. Everything will work out in it's own perfect time- I guess I just need to learn Patience and to trust in God even more. Like I said I'm willing to do my part- extra work etc- I didn't excpect one to just fall into my lap, but jeesh- you think you could catch a little positive stuff every once in a while!.

Sorry guys but I needed to get this out. It's been gnawing at me on the inside and I just don't quite understand (and probably never will) the reason(S) behind this delay or particular stop time! But I am getting frustrated! Will try to consolidate and put this in better words and perspective and put on Shhh...God's Talking. (I'll just post this one for now!)

Yours in Christ,

John

STUFF

Well lets see here. This is just a general post to fill the gap until I start my New Old schedule. I will be going back to three 12's- YES!!! It is so much easier than 4 9's or 4 10's! I just had to be cleared from the Cardiologist after the Stent to go back to 12's. And this will allow me to work more on Full-On as well as the Christian Blog- Shhh- God's Talking, of which I am truly proud and enjoying. Thanks jeanne from Just Me-My two Cents who said I could and should do both--it appears I can without a lot of compromise and still remain truthful to both camps!

I am feeling better than I have in probably 10 or 15 years and will probably die of an Aneurysm tomorrow at 12:15 pm while taking a dump at Urgent Care. I won't be missed for 20 or 30 minutes and I've always wanted to be found on the crapper reading a book on Jewish Sports Heros'.....the Long Version. (A 2 page Pamphlet). Of course I'm kidding and I will not die one minute before I'm supposed to unless you hear me yell=
Hey Ya'll Watch this!!!
...... Of which I promised my wife I would not do.

We are really busy at work and I have reason to believe this Flu season is gonna kick butt! Why you ask? Damn I wish you hadn't because I can't qualify that at all with one shred of scientific evidence.

How bout them Cock's???? Mind out of gutters and eyes off laps please. I mean the Gamecocks who are ranked 7th Nationally this week thank you very much. We are used to just being RANK! This is a long overdue process for us and I really think the Ol Ball Coach (Spurrier) has what it takes to truly turn young men around and live and play up to and even beyond their potential.

Well, that's about it for today. The pond is almost completely dry again after it refilled slightly and we are in about a minus 8-10 inch deficit if not more. Our State Fair came and started today and that foe us is the harbinger of cooler weather and true to form a front came through and it will be in the 70's and maybe in the 60's for Highs. A lot of times we get our first very early freeze when the Fair arrives!

We haven't been in several years since the food is sooo conducive to a Heart friendly Diet...I may just melt some Crisco and give myself about 60 cc's IV for the winter!---but we may go and get Elephant Ears, Cotton Candy and a Candied Apple for my wife, and the only time ever I get French Fries with Vinegar on them!! And also the Fried Mushrooms!!!!!

8 YEARS AFTER PRESIDENT CLINTON LEFT OFFICE


DOUBLE-CLICK TO ENLARGE AND LOOK CLOSELY!!!!


ON A VERY SRIOUS NOTE- PLEASE READ ABOUT THE SCAM THAT HAPPENED TO ME AT LOWES...I DID NOT THINK I COULD BE FOOLED BY SUCH A LAME-BRAINED SCAM BUT THEY GOT ME! VERY IMPORTANT TO PASS ON TO ALL MEN SHOPPING AT LOEW'S

Subject: Scam at Lowes

A "heads up" for those men who may be regular Lowes
customers.

Over the last month I became a victim of a clever scam
while out shopping. Simply going out to get supplies
has turned out to be quite traumatic. Don't be naive
enough to think it couldn't happen to you or your
friends.

Here's how the scam works:

Two seriously good-looking girls come over to your car
as you are packing your shopping into the trunk. They
both start wiping your windshield with a rag and
windex, with their breasts almost falling out of their
skimpy T-shirts. It is impossible not to look.

When you thank them and offer them a tip, they say
"No" and instead ask you for a ride to another store.
You agree and they get in the back seat.

On the way, they start undressing. Then one of them
climbs over into the front seat and starts crawling

all over you, while the other one steals your wallet.

I had my wallet stolen August 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on
the 15th, 17th, 20th, & 24th. Also September 1st, 4th,
twice on the 8th, 24th three times just yesterday and very
likely this afternoon.

So tell your friends to be careful

CLEAN UP THE POOP

I bought a bird feeder. I hung
it on my back porch and filled
it with seed. What a beauty of
a bird feeder it is, as I filled it
lovingly with seed. Within a
week we had hundreds of birds
taking advantage of the
continuous flow of free and
easily accessible food.

But then the birds started
building nests in the boards
of the patio, above the table,
and next to the barbecue.

Then came the poop. It was
everywhere: on the patio tile,
the chairs, the table ...
everywhere!

Then some of the birds
turned mean. They would
dive bomb me and try to
peck me even though I had
fed them out of my own
pocket.

And others birds were
boisterous and loud. They
sat on the feeder and
squawked and screamed at
all hours of the day and night
and demanded that I fill it
when it got low on food.

After a while, I couldn't even
sit on my own back porch
anymore. So I took down the
bird feeder and in three days
the birds were gone. I cleaned
up their mess and took down
the many nests they had built
all over the patio.

Soon, the back yard was like
it used to be ... quiet, serene
and no one demanding their
rights to a free meal.

Now let's see ....
Our government gives out
free food, subsidized housing,
free medical care, and free
education and allows anyone
born here to be an automatic
citizen.

Then the illegals came by the
tens of thousands. Suddenly
our taxes went up to pay for
free services; small apartments
are housing 5 families; you
have to wait 6 hours to be seen
by an emergency room doctor;
your child's 2nd grade class is
behind other schools because
over half the class doesn't speak
English.

Corn Flakes now come in a
bilingual box; I have to
"press one" to hear my bank
talk to me in English, and
people waving flags other
than "Old Glory" are
squawking and screaming
in the streets, demanding
more rights and free liberties.

Just my opinion, but maybe
it's time for the government
to take down the bird feeder.
If you agree, pass it on; if not,
continue cleaning up the poop!

NEW POST TO MAKE UP FOR SUCKY POST!

AMERICAN ROWING TEAM- 6 PEOPLE PRESENT- 3 MORE BACK AT HOTEL JUST NOW GETTING THE MEMOS THAT THE RACE HAD BEGUN!

A Japanese company and an American company decided to have a canoe race on the Missouri River . Both teams practiced long and hard to reach their peak performance before the race. On the big day, the Japanese won by a mile.

The Americans, very discouraged and depressed, decided to investigate the reason for the crushing defeat. A management team made up of senior management was formed to investigate and recommend appropriate action. Their conclusion was the Japanese had 8 people rowing and 1 person steering, while the American team had 8 people steering and 1 person rowing.

So American management hired a consulting company and paid them a large amount of money for a second opinion. They advised that too many people were steering the boat, while not enough people were rowing.


To prevent another loss to the Japanese, the rowing team's management structure was totally reorganized to 4 steering supervisors, 3 area steering superintendents and 1 assistant superintendent steering manager. They also implemented a new
performance system that would give the 1 person rowing the boat greater incentive to work harder. It was called the "Rowing Team Quality First Program", with meetings, dinners and free pens for the rower. There was discussion of getting new paddles, canoes and other equipment, extra vacation days for practices and bonuses.

The next year the Japanese won by two miles. Humiliated, the American management laid off the rower for poor performance, halted development of a new canoe, sold the paddles, and canceled all capital investments for new equipment.

The money saved was distributed to the Senior Executives as bonuses and the next year's racing team was outsourced to India .

URINE TEST


Like a lot of folks in this state, I have a job.

I work, they pay me.

The government takes 40% and distributes my taxes as they see fit.

In order to get that paycheck, I am required to pass a random urine test.

I have no problem with that.


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?!


Please 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 sitting on their ass, doing drugs, while I work.

Can you imagine how much money the state would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance check??!!

Something has to change in this country and soon!!!

THINGS TO KEEP YOU YOUNG!

HOW TO STAY YOUNG

1. Try everything twice. On Madams tombstone (of Wheelman's and Madam)
she said she wanted this epitaph: Tried everything twice...loved it
both times!

2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down. (keep this
in mind if you are one of those grouches;)

3. Keep learning: Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening,
whatever. Never let the brain get idle. "An idle mind is the devil's
workshop." And the devil's name is Alzheimer's!

4 Enjoy the simple things.

5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath. And if
you have a friend who makes you laugh, spend lots and lots of time with
HIM/HER.

6. The tears happen: Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person who
is with us our entire life, is ourselves. LIVE while you are alive.

7. Surround yourself with what you love: Whether it's family, pets,
keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.

8 Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable,
improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

9. Don't take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to the next
county, to a foreign country, but NOT to where the guilt is.

10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.

11. Forgive now those who made you cry. You might not get a second time.
