Reds have revolving home of left fielders
Free forum : Our Secret Place - Portal I_icon_minitimeWed Jun 22, 2011 5:45 pm by lilymarry
CINCINNATI -- experienced Tuesday's gaming in opposition to the Yankees not been rained out, the Reds experienced Jonny Gomes slated to begin in left field. It's a placement which has remained instead fluid evening to evening in manager Dusty Baker's lineups.

Gomes,Cheap Usa Soccer Jerseyswho lost his commencing area there in May, is batting .346 (9-for-26) for the four 1 week period of June and .389 (14-for-36) much more than his last 15 games. Overall, his standard is nonetheless minimal at .216, with eight residence runs, 27 RBIs collectively with a .335 on-base percentage.

Since dropping his normal place while in the lineup, Gomes has invested additional time operating on hitting with Baker and hitting mentor Brook Jacoby.
"I was in a placement to acquire all the demons out, clean up the slate. I'm receiving back again on base," Gomes said. "You'll see in the accomplish using the year, a man who was hitting .310 or .295 and finishes the time period at .265-.270. people nowadays drop. You don't want it to occur in the beginning, as a end result of the actuality you have that ugly amount up there.

"Last year,inter milan jerseyI obtained away to some warm start. Coming in to the season, I concentrated on finishing strong. last year, I didn't accomplish as powerful as I preferred to. ... maybe I didn't place adequate concentrate into my start. i experienced been concentrated on possessing that beneficial finish."

Baker been given lots of backlash from fans for continuing to take advantage of Gomes much more than Chris Heisey and Fred Lewis. But Heisey has struggled while in the fixtures he starts,germany soccer jersey batting .195 (15-for-77), using a .284 on-base percentage. Coming away the bench, Heisey is batting .378 (17-for-45) and he's at .381 (8-for-21) getting a pinch-hitter.

Asked if that confirmed an earlier viewpoint he experienced this time period that Heisey may be much better suited getting a part participant for the time being, Baker deferred.

"I know I have my judgment on things, and lots of people nowadays have their opinions on things. I can't be worried about everyone else's opinion," Baker said. "I obtained a job to undertake one of the most effective I can with what I think my personnel can do. there is a time when everyone preferred [Laynce] Nix to play. there is a time people nowadays experienced been mad Jonny Gomes wasn't playing, right? Now there are possibly people nowadays mad as a end result of the actuality Freddy isn't playing. I can't be worried about confirming or something about what I think. That's why I'm receiving compensated to undertake this job. I'm decrease right here with these guys. I'm not while in the stands.lionel messi jersey I'm not calling in to communicate shows. I'm not worried about what anybody says about anything."
Unexpected breather may do Reds good

The countrywide League leaders in runs scored along using the third-best hitting team have strike a wall the previous 4 fixtures of Interleague hold out in opposition to the Blue Jays and Yankees.

In 4 fixtures on this homestand, the Reds are hitting .220. They are 2-for-22 with runners in scoring placement and have scored only 7 runs.

"The gaming goes in cycles. occasionally there is no explanation. occasionally you can rating at will, other instances you can't purchase a run," Baker said. "Sometimes you run in to a streak of pitchers which occur to be dealing. everyone says hitting should certainly be the toughest element to do. everyone says beneficial pitching stops beneficial hitting.cristiano ronaldo jersey after which when you don't hit, everyone desires to locate out what's wrong. It's contradictory using the complete theory."
Getting on bottom may be as a good offer of the circumstance as producing runners in. As recently as Thursday, the Reds experienced been the league leaders in walks. Also while in the last 4 games, they've drawn only two walks -- in comparison to 28 strikeouts.

"They haven't walked us,wayne rooney jersey either," Baker stated of opposing pitchers. "When a team isn't scoring, the pitcher has additional assurance to throw strikes. when you are scoring and they're getting extremely cautious with you, it experienced prospects to walks."

During the homestand, Joey Votto is 3-for-15, with all using the hits coming Sunday. Drew Stubbs is 2-for-16, and Jay Bruce and Brandon Phillips are equally 4-for-16.

Baker has invested the previous few of times wanting to acquire his game fanatics to discharge any tension.

"It's like a cold.kaka jersey Yeah, it's contagious," Baker said. "All it requires is one or two guys to relieve the tension. It's like a doctor's while in the home that heals everybody. That's a extremely complicated word. It seems simple, but it's not effortless to acquire rid of."

Tuesday's postponement is only the fifth while in the nine seasons at brilliant American Ball Park. The last rainout the club experienced was on may possibly two of the time period in opposition to the Astros.

Not even one number. We'll try again Saturday.

I thought I would be making that cake today but I'm putting it off for a few days.

I think that Slimfast I've been drinking gave me a touch of something.

For 2 days I've had a stomach ache that is out of this world. It's a hurt/sore feeling in my lower intestines. I have a bit of bleeding too. Should I worry ???

It's only the chocolate. I'll quit drinking it for a few days to see if it clears up.

Anyway, it has made me tired. I got to whining about it and no one wants to be around me.

GO then, GO away. Very Happy

I will now just go and lay my big ass on the sofa and watch groovy movies. ALONE.

No cooking, no more cleaning. That's that !!

We were awakened about 4:30 with thunderstorms. Dan turned the TV on in the bedroom to look at the radar and I was half awake.

He got up and I went back to sleep. He came in and woke me up a couple of hours later and I was laying on my stomach. Apparently I fell asleep on top of the remote control because I had a perfect imprint of that remote on my stomach. Dan could not stop laughing and went to get the camera. Ummm, no.

It's almost gone.

I finally got a reply--sounds like she is planning to call me. I will let you know if she does.





Hi Rhonda

I want to thank you for writing. I wanted to write so many times as I have been thinking of you and I lost your address, so I am so thankful you wrote to me. I promise this time to keep it in a safe place.
Ron just had surgery. The Dr closed his sternum - finally. It was 5 inches wide and 2 inches deep - full of infection.
I will tell you more when we talk on the phone.
Ron is known in ICU as a Miracle...and I believe it. His Drs/Surgeons/cardiac nurse tell me this constantly.
He has been through so much.
In 2 to 3 mos I hope to bring him home.

I hope you are ok, Rosie, Rhonda. Thank you for being a friend.

Love always, Rachelle (and Ron)

Man Shot By Wife Recently Pulled From House Fire

WINTER SPRINGS, Fla. -- A Seminole County woman appeared in court Monday afternoon after being accused of trying to kill her husband and then trying to cover up the crime. At Monday's first appearance the judge ruled no bond for 44-year-old Kimberly Boone and she is not allowed to have contact with her husband or children.

WFTV has found a possible motive that investigators are considering for Kimberly Boone to shoot her husband. Reporter Elizabeth Artz discovered State Farm cut the couple a $300,000 check for a house fire Robert Boone barely survived.

WFTV has learned that Boone's home caught fire December 18 and at the time no one was home except Robert Boone. The family dog was not home either, which one neighbor said was odd because the family dog was always in the house. In fact, the same neighbor pulled Robert from the burning home and 3 months later Robert Boone is recovering from gunshot wounds.

Channel nine sources said the fire was so suspicious to State Farm, its own investigative unit started digging. According to the source, the insurer didn't have enough evidence to fight it and within the last six weeks paid the family nearly $300,000.

"We have heard that too, we have not confirmed it yet, if that is the case it's concerning and something we will take a very hard look at," said Clark.

Investigators are also looking at the Boone's financial records and if there was another person involved.

"Lucky he's alive he's got more than 9 lives," said another neighbor.

The State Fire Marshal's Office closed the case nearly two and a half weeks ago. Robert Boone told his neighbors his laptop battery caused the fire.

At approximately 5:45am Sunday, deputies responded to 714 Boysenberry Ct, in Winter Springs, regarding a call of a possible residential burglary with shots fired. Upon arrival deputies found 41-year-old Robert Boone in the bedroom with a gunshot wound to the chest.

Deputies said they were suspicious about the apparent home invasion from the moment they showed up at the home, because there were no signs of forced entry. Officers were able to hear a 911 call that Kimberly Boone made, claiming someone shot her husband inside their garage.

"Somebody just broke in my house and my husband was shot," Kimberly Boone said.

She claimed it was a home invasion even tried to stop the bleeding and comfort him.

"No, no we're not going to let you die Rob," she said.

"You could hear in the background him asking her if it was her that shot him," said Lt. James Clark of the Seminole County Sheriff's Office.

"No, I did not shoot you sweetheart," said Kimberly Boone to her husband.

The official incident report says that Boone lured her husband into their garage in the middle of the night and shot him. The couple's two children were also in the home at the time of the incident. They are currently in the care of relatives. Police have since charged Kimberly Boone with attempted murder in the first-degree.

However, when deputies arrived and starting asking questions, Rob was able to tell them a different story.

"I thought it was her, I thought she shot me," said Robert Boone.

"This looks a little too calculated, this is not an accident," said Lieutenant Clark.

At the time, Kimberley Boone denied it.

"Rob, I did not shoot you sweetheart I was in with the boys," she said.

Dispatchers could then hear the voice of Kimberly Boone say, "Of course I didn't shoot you."

Their two small children were home at the time, neighbors say the boys are five and seven years old. At one point one of the kids came in the room where their dad lay bleeding.

"Go back in with your brother, go in with your brother ok, it's ok, ok climb up in the bed. He won't leave," said Boone to her children.

Investigators said she finally admitted to them during an interrogation she shot at her husband three times. At one point during the interrogation, Boone claimed that she had amnesia and could not recall what happened.

Mr. Boone was transported to Orlando Regional Medical Center by ambulance with non-life threatening injuries.

"What we're trying to do now is to seek to find whether or not this was premeditated, and right now it doesn't look good," Lt. Clark said.

Former neighbors of the couple told WFTV reporter Elizabeth Artz that Robert and Kimberly both had permits to carry guns and an impressive gun collection.

Investigators believe Boone intended to shoot to kill and did not expect her husband to survive the bullet wounds from the high-powered .357 revolver. Deputies located the discarded gun just outside the Boone's garage.

Only one of the three bullets fired struck her husband. The bullet hit him in the chest and exited straight out of his back without touching any organs.

Kimberly Boone has no prior arrest history in Seminole County and there were no notable calls for service to the couple's residence. Even neighbors could not believe there was a random home invasion on their quiet street.

"I was really shocked. It was kind of surprising. That kind of stuff doesn't go on around here," said neighbor, Randy Pasley.


That poor man, those poor kids. Crazy woman going to jail. At least they are safe now. I hope.

Anyone have a recipe for

an old fashioned coconut cake ??

This cake has like a hard egg white frosting with coconut in it.
I call it crunchy.

Yes I could look it up but I'm wanting one that maybe is an easy family recipe.

Glenn's mother made this cake. I can't call her and ask, she's too weak to talk and I hate talking to his father.

He's been craving this cake for weeks and I don't know how to make it. I thought I'd give it a try before he goes ahead and does it because he will either ruin a saucepan or ruin my stovetop trying.

What's sad about the whole thing is it will go to waste. I don't care for the crusty icing part and I doubt Jonathan even tries it. We both don't like coconut.

Tough luck.

You know, I’m not entirely certain I begrudge the AIG people the bonuses they’ve been paid. Frankly, I don’t know, and I suspect no one else who has commented on the bonuses does either, what the basis of the bonuses was. So they may have been entirely proper given the circumstances of the contracts involved. Or they could be the closest thing to handing a political donor a bag of money that you will see on this side of the eternal divide, in which case I really would want them strung up on the wrack if only that hadn’t been outlawed. But either way, I don’t have the information to determine whether or not the bonus were legal and appropriate.

And I don’t want the government putting salary caps on big businesses that haven’t been bailed out. But quite honestly, the part of the country to which you refer is the part of the country that keeps putting these twits in office and thinking there won’t be any comeuppance. Well, in the words made famous by Jack Nicholson as the Joker “It’s your uncle Bingo. Time to pay the check!”

Nothing against you personally Francis. You’ve given good advice and people ought to heed it, even in this case. If they do, we’ll all be better off. But I don’t expect them to, because they haven’t in the past. And that really will be a tough luck break for all of us. But there is no way in all the 9 levels of hades I’m going to be sympathetic to the people who brought this upon us all.

Shlomi, 44, was arrested last month on a felony battery charge following a violent confrontation with a prostitute in his South Beach hotel room. According to an arrest affidavit, Shlomi met Sasha Harris, 26, at a Miami Beach nightclub on February 7 and subsequently retired with her to his $750 room at the lavish Setai hotel. Shlomi told cops he paid Harris about $1000 in cash after she "propositioned him for straight sex." Shlomi said that when he kissed Harris, she suddenly "bit his tongue and would not let go." Shlomi then punched Harris several times until she released his tongue.

(1) approximately 4,000,000 Africans and their descendants were enslaved in the United States and colonies that became the United States from 1619 to 1865;

(2) the institution of slavery was constitutionally and statutorily sanctioned by the Government of the United States from 1789 through 1865;

(3) the slavery that flourished in the United States constituted an immoral and inhumane deprivation of Africans' life, liberty, African citizenship rights, and cultural heritage, and denied them the fruits of their own labor; and

(D) the treatment of African slaves in the colonies and the United States, including the deprivation of their freedom, exploitation of their labor, and destruction of their culture, language, religion, and families.

(2) Examine the extent to which the Federal and State governments of the United States supported the institution of slavery in constitutional and statutory provisions, including the extent to which such governments prevented, opposed, or restricted efforts of freed African slaves to repatriate to their homeland.

(3) Examine Federal and State laws that discriminated against freed African slaves and their descendants during the period between the end of the Civil War and the present.

(4) Examine other forms of discrimination in the public and private sectors against freed African slaves and their descendants during the period between the end of the Civil War and the present.

(5) Examine the lingering negative effects of the institution of slavery and the matters described in paragraphs (1), (2), (3), and (4) on living African-Americans and on society in the United States.

(6) Recommend appropriate ways to educate the American public of the Commission's findings.

(7) Recommend appropriate remedies in consideration of the Commission's findings on the matters described in paragraphs (1), (2), (3), and (4). In making such recommendations, the Commission shall address among other issues, the following questions:

Maybe it's because I'm grounded and stuck in this chair but I've been having fun over the SH.

In particular, KK is back to cause trouble so I've had a few back and forths with her and maybe a couple of Midway.

The funniest part is that her beloved college BB team lost last night to Michigan State in the NCAA tourney. Had to give her shit about that.

Al Gore Didn't Celebrate Earth Hour
Free forum : Our Secret Place - Portal I_icon_minitimeMon Mar 30, 2009 6:15 am by Emily
Maybe no one told him about it.


Al Gore Leaves The Light On For Ya
By Kleinheider Posted on March 29, 2009 at 12:00 pm

Even during Earth Hour. President of the Tennessee Center For Policy Research Drew Johnson takes a Saturday drive by Al Gore’s during the time most environmentalists went dark:

I pulled up to Al’s house, located in the posh Belle Meade section of Nashville, at 8:48pm – right in the middle of Earth Hour. I found that the main spotlights that usually illuminate his 9,000 square foot mansion were dark, but several of the lights inside the house were on.

In fact, most of the windows were lit by the familiar blue-ish hue indicating that floor lamps and ceiling fixtures were off, but TV screens and computer monitors were hard at work. (In other words, his house looked the way most houses look about 1:45am when their inhabitants are distractedly watching “Cheaters” or “Chelsea Lately” reruns.)

The kicker, though, were the dozen or so floodlights grandly highlighting several trees and illuminating the driveway entrance of Gore’s mansion.

I [kid] you not, my friends, the savior of the environment couldn’t be bothered to turn off the gaudy lights that show off his goofy trees.

Too old to take an ass whoopin'.
Free forum : Our Secret Place - Portal I_icon_minitimeSun Mar 29, 2009 12:13 am by Maboe Shortt

My old grandpa once said to me, "Son, there comes a time in every man's life when
he stops bustin' knuckles and starts bustin' caps and usually it's when he
becomes too old to take an ass whoopin'.

I don't carry a gun to kill
people. I carry a gun to keep from being killed..

I don't carry a gun to
scare people. I carry a gun because sometimes this world can be a scary
place.

I don't carry a gun because I'm paranoid. I carry a gun because
there are real threats in the world.

I don't carry a gun because I'm
evil. I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the
world.

I don't carry a gun because I hate the government. I carry a gun
because I understand the limitations of government.

I don't carry a gun
because I'm angry. I carry a gun so that I don't have to spend the rest of my
life hating myself for failing to be prepared.

I don't carry a gun
because I want to shoot someone. I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe
old age in my bed, and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon.

I
don't carry a gun because I'm a cowboy. I carry a gun because, when I die and go
to Heaven, I want to be a cowboy.

I don't carry a gun to make me feel
like a man. I carry a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and
the ones they love.

I don't carry a gun because I feel inadequate. I
carry a gun because, unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am
inadequate.

I don't carry a gun because I love it. I carry a gun because
I love life and the people who make it meaningful to me.

"Police
Protection" is an oxymoron. Free citizens must protect themselves. Police do not
protect you from crime; they just investigate the crime after it happens and
then call someone in to clean up the mess.

Personally, I carry a gun
because I'm too young to die and too old to take an ass
whoopin'."

brilliant)

I already heard about this in the am. NOW it is on CNN. Dallas cops are such total POS! No, really. They really really really are. I wish they hadn't thrown the racist thing in at the end. It was such a much more powerful story without it. I think it diminshes the negative impact the story had originally. And, I do not doubt that is how it went down. Haven't had time to watch the vid, as I can't at work.

24 things about to become extinct in America
Free forum : Our Secret Place - Portal I_icon_minitimeWed Mar 25, 2009 11:03 am by Rosie
24 THINGS ABOUT TO BECOME EXTINCT IN AMERICA


24. Yellow Pages
This year will be pivotal for the global Yellow Pages industry.
Much like newspapers, print Yellow Pages will continue to bleed
dollars to their various digital counterparts, from Internet
Yellow Pages (IYPs), to local search engines and combination
search/listing services like Reach Local and Yodel Factors like an
acceleration of the print 'fade rate' and the looming recession
will contribute to the onslaught. One research firm predicts the
falloff in usage of newspapers and print Yellow Pages could even
reach 10% this year -- much higher than the 2%-3% fade rate seen
in past years.

23. Classified Ads
The Internet has made so many things obsolete that newspaper
classified ads might sound like just another trivial item on a
long list. But this is one of those harbingers of the future that
could signal the end of civilization as we know it. The argument
is that if newspaper classifieds are replaced by free online
listings at sites like Craigslist.org <http://craigslist.org/> ?and Google Base, then
newspapers are not far be hind them.

22. Movie Rental Stores
While Netflix is looking up at the moment, Blockbuster keeps
closing store locations by the hundreds. It still has about 6,000
left across the world, but those keep dwindling and the stock is
down considerably in 2008, especially since the company gave up a
quest of Circuit City. Movie Gallery, which owned the Hollywood
Video brand, closed up shop earlier this year. Countless small
video chains and mom-and-pop stores have given up the ghost
already.

21. Dial-up Internet Access
Dial-up connections have fallen from 40% in 2001 to 10% in 2008.
The combination of an infrastructure to accommodate affordable
high speed Internet connections and the disappearing home phone
have all but pounded the final nail in the coffin of dial-up
Internet access.

20. Phone Landlines
According to a survey from the National Center for Health
Statistics, at the end of 2007, nearly one in six homes was
cell-only and, of those homes that had landlines, one in eight
only received calls on their cells.

19. Chesapeake Bay Blue Crabs
Maryland's icon, the blue crab, has been fading away in Chesapeake
Bay. Last year Maryland saw the lowest harvest (22 million pounds)
since 1945. Just four decades ago the bay produced 96 million
pounds. The population is down 70% since 1990, when they first did
a formal count. There are only about 120 million crabs in the bay
and they think they need 200 million for a sustainable population.
Over-fishing, pollution, invasive species and global warming get
the blame.

18. VCRs
For the better part of three decades, the VCR was a best-seller
and staple in every American household until being completely
decimated by the DVD, and now the Digital Video Recorder (DVR). In
fact, the only remnants of the VHS age at your local Wal-Mart or
Radio Shack are blank VHS tapes these days. Pre-recorded VHS tapes
are largely gone and VHS decks are practically nowhere to be
found. They served us so well.

17. Ash Trees
In the late 1990s, a pretty, iridescent green species of beetle,
now known as the emerald ash borer, hitched a ride to North
America with ash wood products imported from eastern Asia. In less
than a decade, its larvae have killed millions of trees in the
Midwest, and continue to spread. They've killed more than 30
million ash trees in southeastern Michigan alone, with tens of
millions more lost in Ohio and Indiana. More than 7.5 billion ash
trees are currently at risk.

16. Ham Radio
Amateur radio operators enjoy personal (and often worldwide)
wireless communications with each other and are able to support
their communities with emergency and disaster communications if
necessary, while increasing their personal knowledge of
electronics and radio theory. However, proliferation of the
Internet and its popularity among youth has caused the decline of
amateur radio. In the past five years alone, the number of people
holding active ham radio licenses has dropped by 50,000, even
though Morse Code is no longer a requirement.

15. The Swimming Hole
Thanks to our litigious society, swimming holes are becoming a
thing of the past. '20/20' reports that swimming hole owners, like
Robert Every in High Falls, NY, are shutting them down out of
worry that if someone gets hurt they'll sue. And that's exactly
what happened in Seattle. The city of Bellingham was sued by Katie
Hofstetter who was paralyzed in a fall at a popular swimming hole
in Whatcom Falls Park. As injuries occur and lawsuits follow,
expect more swimming holes to post 'Keep out!' signs.

14. Answering Machines
The increasing disappearance of answering machines is directly
tied to No 20 our list -- the decline of landlines. According to
USA Today, the number of homes that only use cell phones jumped
159% between 2004 and 2007. It has been particularly bad in New
York; since 2000, landline usage has dropped 55%. It's logical
that as cell phones rise, many of them replacing traditional
landlines, that there will be fewer answering machines.

13. Cameras That Use Film
It doesn't require a statistician to prove the rapid disappearance
of the film camera in America. Just look to companies like Nikon,
the professional's choice for quality camera equipment. In 2006,
it announced that it would stop making film cameras, pointing to
the shrinking market -- only 3% of its sales in 2005, compared to
75% of sales from digital cameras and equipment.

12. Incandescent Bulbs
Before a few years ago, the standard 60-watt (or, yikes, 100-watt)
bulb was the mainstay of every U.S. home. With the green movement
and all-things-sustainable-energy crowd, the Compact Fluorescent
Lightbulb (CFL) is largely replacing the older, Edison-era
incandescent bulb. The EPA reports that 2007 sales for Energy Star
CFLs nearly doubled from 2006, and these sales accounted for
approximately 20 percent of the U.S. light bulb market. And
according to USA Today, a new energy bill plans to phase out
incandescent bulbs in the next four to 12 years.

11. Stand-Alone Bowling Alleys
Bowling Balls. US claims there are still 60 million Americans who
bowl at least once a year, but many are not bowling in stand-alone
bowling alleys. Today most new bowling alleys are part of
facilities for all types or recreation including laser tag,
go-karts, bumper cars, video game arcades, climbing walls and glow
miniature golf. Bowling lanes also have been added to many
non-traditional venues such as adult communities, hotels and
resorts, and gambling casinos.

10. The Milkman
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, in 1950, over
half of the milk delivered was to the home in quart bottles, by
1963, it was about a third and by 2001, it represented only 0.4%
percent. Nowadays most milk is sold through supermarkets in gallon
jugs. The steady decline in home-delivered milk is blamed, of
course, on the rise of the supermarket, better home refrigeration
and longer-lasting milk. Although some milkmen still make the
rounds in pockets of the U.S., they are certainly a dying breed.

9. Hand-Written Letters
In 2006, the Radicati Group estimated that, worldwide, 183 billion
e-mails were sent each day. Two million each second. By November
of 2007, an estimated 3.3 billion Earthlings owned cell phones,
and 80% of the world's population had access to cell phone
coverage. In 2004, half-a-trillion text messages were sent, and
the number has no doubt increased exponentially since then. So
where amongst this gorge of gabble is there room for the elegant,
polite hand-written letter?

8. Wild Horses
It is estimated that 100 years ago, as many as two million horses
were roaming free within the United States. In 2001, National
Geographic News estimated that the wild horse population had ?decreased to

about 50,000 head. Currently, the National Wild Horse
and Burro Advisory board states that there are 32,000 free roaming
horses in ten Western states, with half of them residing in
Nevada. The Bureau of Land Management is seeking to reduce the
total number of free range horses to 27,000, possibly by selective
euthanasia.

7. Personal Checks
According to an American Bankers Assoc report, a net 23% of
consumers plan to decrease their use of checks over the next two
years, while a net 14% plan to increase their use of PIN debit.
Bill payment remains the last stronghold of paper-based
payments -- for the time being. Checks continue to be the most
commonly used bill payment method, with 71% of consumers paying at
least one recurring bill per month by writing a check. However, on
a bill-by-bill basis, checks account for only 49% of consumers'
recurring bill payments (down from 72% in 2001 and 60% in 2003).

6. Drive-in Theaters
During the peak in 1958, there were more than 4,000 drive-in
theaters in this country, but in 2007 only 405 drive-ins were
still operating. Exactly zero new drive-ins have been built since
2005. Only one reopened in 2005 and five reopened in 2006, so
there isn't much of a movement toward reviving the closed ones.

5. Mumps & Measles
Despite what's been in the news lately, the measles and mumps
actually, truly are disappearing from the United States. In 1964,
212,000 cases of mumps were reported in the U.S. By 1983, this
figure had dropped to 3,000, thanks to a vigorous vaccination
program. Prior to the introduction of the measles vaccine,
approximately half a million cases of measles were reported in the
U.S annually, resulting in 450 deaths. In 2005, only 66 cases
were recorded.

4. Honey Bees
Perhaps nothing on our list of disappearing America is so dire;
plummeting so …

When The postal authorities received the letter

to a little boy.

The little boy was delighted with the

Dr. Erin Jacobson of St. Helena, his wife Amy and their three children, Taylor, 4; Ava, 3; Jude, 1 all died Sunday afternoon in a plane crash in Butte Mont.

The victims of a Montana plane crash were three California families -- including a family of five from Napa County -- traveling to the Yellowstone Club for a skiing vacation.

“We were going on a vacation with all the grandkids,” said Bud Feldkamp, who lost two daughters and their families in the crash. “They were all excited about skiing.”

Feldkamp leased the airplane that crashed Sunday in Butte. He said he, his wife and another daughter had driven to Montana for the vacation.

Stimulus Payment Information
Free forum : Our Secret Place - Portal I_icon_minitimeWed Mar 25, 2009 11:04 am by Rosie
Stimulus Payment Information


This year, taxpayers may receive an Economic Stimulus payment. This is a very exciting program that I will explain using the Q & A format:


Q. What is an Economic Stimulus payment?

A. It is money that the federal government will send to taxpayers.



Q. Where will the government get this money?

A. From taxpayers..



Q. So the government is giving me back my own money?

A. Yes, but only a smidgen.



Q. What is the purpose of this payment?

A. The plan is that you will use the money to purchase a high-definition TV, thus stimulating the economy.



Q. But isn*t that stimulating the economy of China ?

A. Shut up.



Below is some helpful advice on how to best help the U.S. economy by spending your stimulus check wisely:

If you spend that money at Wal-Mart, all the money will go to China .

If you spend it on gasoline it will go to the Arabs.

If you purchase a computer it will go to India .

If you purchase fruits and vegetables it will go to Mexico , Honduras , Guatemala or Chile (unless you buy organic).

If you buy a car it will go to Japan .

If you purchase useless crap it will go to Taiwan .

And none of it will help the American economy.

We need to keep that money here in America !

You can keep the stimulus money here in America by spending it at yard sales, going to a baseball game, or spend it on beer and wine (domestic ONLY), buy pizza, cigarettes or get tattoos since those are the only businesses left in the U.S.

Gun History.
Free forum : Our Secret Place - Portal I_icon_minitimeWed Mar 25, 2009 2:07 am by Debu

After reading the following historcial facts, read the part about Switzerland twice.

A LITTLE GUN HISTORY
In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
------------------------------

In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
------------------------------

Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
------------------------------

China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated
------------------------------

Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
---- ------------- -------------

Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
------------------------------

Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
-----------------------------

Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 million.
------------------------------

It has now been 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by new law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by their own Government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars. The first year results are now in:

List of 7 items:

Australia-wide, homicides are up 3.2 percent.

Australia-wide, assaults are up 8.6 percent.

Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!

In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent. Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not, and criminals still possess their guns!

While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.

There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the ELDERLY. Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort, and expense was expended in successfully ridding Australian society of guns. The Australian experience and the other historical facts above prove it.

You won't see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.

Take note my fellow Americans, before it's too late!

The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson.

With guns, we are 'citizens'. Without them, we are 'subjects'.

During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!

If you value your freedom, please spread this anti-gun control message to all of your friends.


The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense. The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental.

SWITZERLAND ISSUES EVERY HOUSEHOLD A GUN! SWITZERLAND 'S GOVERNMENT TRAINS EVERY ADULT THEY ISSUE A RIFLE. SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!
IT'S A NO BRAINER! DON'T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL LAW ABIDING CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET.

I'm a firm believer of the 2nd Amendment! If you are too, please forward.











I have sent this to eveyone in my address book. Don't let it stop here.........


Just think how powerful our government is getting. They think these other countries just didn't do it right.

SHOCKING STATEMENT !!!!
Free forum : Our Secret Place - Portal I_icon_minitimeTue Mar 24, 2009 4:52 am by Shelia
Obama volunteers hunt budget support in Birmingham, Alabama grassroots campaign

Sunday, March 22, 2009 ANNA VELASCONews staff writer
Volunteers fanned out across the Birmingham area and Alabama Saturday to pump up enthusiasm for President Barack Obama's budget proposal in much the same way they did to win over voters during the presidential campaign.

About 30 volunteers in Birmingham canvassed shopping areas and other high-traffic locations to talk about the need for health care reform, an education overhaul and environmentally friendly energy development.

"If we don't change these three things in the next 10 to 15 years, America is over as we know it," Chris DeHaven, told the group of volunteers before they went their separate ways.

Obama's plan faces criticism from Republicans and others who say it's too expensive. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office released a report Friday saying Obama's agenda would cause huge budget deficits, forcing the country to borrow $9.3 trillion in the next decade.

Those who gathered at Kelly Ingram Park in downtown Birmingham were urged to enlist others who share Obama's vision and to stay away from trying to convert naysayers.



Question "We're looking for supporters," said DeHaven of Hoover, one of the event's organizers. "We're not looking for a fight. That will come later, when we have an army." Question



The volunteers are part of Organizing for America, the same grassroots, national network credited in large part with Obama's quick rise from obscurity to president. Birmingham and 11 other sites statewide were part of a national push this weekend by Organizing for America to trumpet Obama's spending proposal.

Across the metro area, volunteers gave their opinions about why Obama's plan is good for the country's future. Then they asked those willing to sign a pledge of support for the budget. Supporters' e-mail addresses and other contact information were collected, to keep people engaged and to recruit more volunteers.

Leanne Townsend of Hoover also helped organize Saturday's event. She has been a member of the Obama grassroots network since March 2007.

"Our group in Birmingham has been very involved," Townsend said. "We're still very energetic. We all worked so hard during the campaign. We can't just stop."

I saw something today that stumped me.

A woman about 60ish wearing a white kerchief pinned down behind her ears, in a white ankle length dress with an aqua blue flower print puffy sleeves, frilly apron front matching the dress, 3/4 black boots and socks.

I know it sounds weird, she was not a nun but I'm curious to find out exactly what she was. Quaker ???? She was in Walmart.

It reminded me of the Amish women but not as severe. She had short gray hair under her starched white kerchief.

An unusual sight, I'm curious. Do any of you know ????

She's not the first I've seen in this area.

Off the hook !!!

We grilled kabobs today that were so good I'm ready to make another batch. I'm not kidding, they were FINE DINING at it's best. Very Happy

We used chicken chunks, beef chunks, pork chunks, shrimp, red, yellow, orange, green bell pepper, a red onion, tomatoes and yellow squash.

We put them together last night and marinated them with Italian salad dressing and
a chipolte lime marinate.

The smell was out of this world !! The taste .... O M G.

Someone came by and asked Glenn why our yard was green while everyone else's was brown. He said he noticed our grass all winter.

We laughed. It's rye grass. He planted it before it got cold and it started to grow and green up in the middle of winter. Since then it's been a deep dark green.

STDs on the rise
Free forum : Our Secret Place - Portal I_icon_minitimeTue Mar 24, 2009 2:01 am by Shelia
A government report reveals a strong need for more attention to abstinence education.

Janice Crouse of Concerned Women for America has seen the report on sexually transmitted diseases which comes from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

"It's just very appalling because the sexually transmitted diseases syphilis and Chlamydia now are continuing to rise," she notes. "And Chlamydia is at an all-time high, an historical high, with over a million new cases a year, which is an increase over last year of some seven percent."

Since many of the new reports involve young people, Crouse says the figures suggest comprehensive sex education -- which she believes encourages young people to be intimate -- is not working.

"We have said to a whole generation, almost two generations now, of young people, 'Just be careful and use a condom,' and that's the only advice we are giving them," she adds, "and I think that's so unfair and it's so misleading for our young people because we're downplaying the consequences of casual sex."

The only way to prevent STDs and pregnancy, says Crouse, is abstinence.


What's the point of teaching sex ed if you don't teach morals ??

Look at the stuff on tv. Good lawd it's filthy. Sure, what you don't let them see they will find out from others but you have to lay the foundation of respecting your body.

It amazes me how many people sleep around.

It amazes me how many teen and adult programs on tv feature that behavior for entertainment purposes.

gross news of the day
Free forum : Our Secret Place - Portal I_icon_minitimeTue Mar 24, 2009 1:52 am by Shelia
Used set was purchased from Rent-A-Center.

When Joseph and Jyll Anderson purchased a used 62-inch flat-screen digital light projection television March 13, they knew it had been sold as-is.

They understood that whether it worked for a week or for 10 years, the seller, Rent-A-Center, 1411 Franklin St., had no responsibility for it once sold.

Never in their wildest imagination, however, did the Andersons expect the chassis of their new television to be filled with the carcasses of dead cockroaches.

That's what they found upon opening it to see why it smelled bad when turned on.

Rent-A-Center's sales manager Edwin Rivera said his company is not legally responsible for returning the $700 the Andersons paid for the TV, when The News-Dispatch called Friday. Nonetheless, he said, "They will get their $700 back."

But the couple also wanted Rent-A-Center to pay for having their house on Country Road 400 West inspected and treated by a reputable pest control company.

Rivera said he could not authorize that expense but he was talking with his regional manager. By 1 p.m. Friday, a Rent-A-Center representative called Anderson to say the company also will pay for the house to be treated.

"The woman who called was very nice," Jyll Anderson said. The refund on the TV and treating her house make her happy, she said. "That's all I really wanted."

Rivera got the TV from a store in Rensselaer, Ind., he said. Since most of the items he rents have been used by other families, he sanitizes them with a spray. "But we can't do that with laptops or televisions," he said.

Still, a TV full of bugs?

"I want this thing out of here," Jyll said Friday morning after calling the newspapers. The Andersons have three children, Emily, 3 years, Joseph, 1 1/2 years and Elizabeth, age 7 1/2 months. "Elizabeth naturally crawls," her mom said. "She's curious about everything she sees."

The living room carpeting in the Anderson home is spotless, but Jyll worries because roaches are notoriously efficient breeders. In addition to the dead bugs, the TV is infested with what appear to be egg sacs. "I'm afraid they're going to break and then we'll have roaches everywhere," Jyll said.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, roaches not only carry disease (including food poisoning), but they and their droppings can trigger asthma attacks.

She said she appreciates Rivera's efforts to get the matter settled.

I was just wondering about that...I decided last week to try my Slimquick again and after two days of taking it just like before when I took it I started having leg cramps at night early mornings.

I use the dexatrim ...once a day and the rest of the time the hypnosis tapes work really well. Putting the head phone on when I go to bed at night is the key for me.

**WARNING** POLITICAL RANT
Free forum : Our Secret Place - Portal I_icon_minitimeFri Mar 20, 2009 12:03 am by Emily
These politicians - especially democrats - piss me off.

These AIG bonuses are not good but it is f****** illegal for congress to vote to single out a group of people and force an extra tax on them.

These bonuses were allowed by the democrats and put in the bill by the democrats. This was part of that stinker of a stimulus bill after Obama was inaugurated that was 1100 pages long and the congress had 90 minutes to read and were expected to sign.

Of note, Chris Dodd and Barack Obama were recipients of large amounts of campaign donations by AIG. Chris Dodd's hands are dirty, dirty, dirty and so are Obama's. Don't forget Tim Geithner - he's part of this too. BTW - if you didn't know it, Tim Geithner was part of the group that put together the TARP bill in September.

They are all standing on the floor (I'm watching C-SPAN) blaming George Bush and calling the republicans the party of no. Everyone is pissed off about these bonuses but I can bet that the anger will be directed at the republicans because many of them will vote to not impose this extra tax on the recipients of these bonuses and the democrats will walk away from this calamity scot-free, even though they are 100% responsible for this and for the enrichment of their own careers.

I'm disgusted. Planning for the tea party on April 15th.

BTW - I love Jeff Flake from Arizona. He's standing on the floor talking about the situation they have found themselves in and he says that Obama is in California not dealing with this issue and going to be on the Jay Leno show tonight. He said the way the administration has handled this has been a comedy and BO is going to continue that comedy tonight.

Letter from the boss...
Free forum : Our Secret Place - Portal I_icon_minitimeFri Mar 20, 2009 4:43 am by Maboe Shortt
As the CEO of this organization, I have resigned myself to the fact
that
Barack Obama is our President, and that our taxes, and government fees
will
increase in a BIG way.

To compensate for these increases,
our prices would have to increase by
about 10%. Since we cannot increase our
prices right now due to the dismal
state of the economy, we will have to lay
off six of our employees instead.

This has really been bothering me,
since I believe we are family here
and I didn't know how to choose who would
have to go. So, this is what I
did. I walked through our parking lot and
found six Obama bumper stickers on
our employees' cars and have decided these
folks will be the ones to let go.

I can't think of a more fair way to
approach this problem. They voted
for change; I gave it to them.


I will see the rest of you at the annual company picnic.

ABC News' Brian Hartman Reports: President Obama's latest shovel-ready project is close to home -- in fact, right in his own yard. In an effort to promote healthy eating, the first family will be planting a vegetable garden right on the White House grounds.

ABC News' Ann Compton and Sunlen Miller report that the new White House vegetable garden will be dug up and planted on the South grounds of the White House -- near the fountain but out of view of the main house.

Though the 16-acre complex is maintained by the National Park Service, one worker who preferred to remain anonymous assured ABC News that National Park Service staff won't do the sowing and planting. The White House residence staff will handle that.

Are you a Democrat, a
Republican, or a Redneck?


Here is a little test that will help you
decide.

The answer can be found by posing the following
question:





#You're
walking down a
deserted street with your wife
and two small
children.


Suddenly, an Islamic
Terrorist with a huge
knife
comes around the corner,


locks
eyes with you,
screams obscenities, praises
Allah, raises the knife, and
charges at you.


You are carrying a
Colt Model 1911 45 cal. automatic
pistol, and you are an expert shot.


You have a mere seconds before he reaches you and your
family.


What
do
you
do?


..............................................................




THINK
CAREFULLY AND
THEN SCROLL DOWN:









Democrat's
Answer
:


Well,
that's not enough information to answer the question!
Does the man look poor
or oppressed?
Have I ever done anything to him


that
would inspire
him to attack?
Could we run away?
What does my wife
think?
What about the kids?
Could I possibly swing the gun, like a
club
and knock the knife out of his hand?
What does the law, say
about
this situation?
Does the pistol, have appropriate safety built
into it?
Why am I carrying a loaded gun anyway, and what kind
of message
does this send to society and to my children?
Is it possible he'd
be
happy with just killing me?
Does he definitely want to kill me, or
would
he be content just to wound me?
If I were to grab his knees and
hold
on, could my family get away while he was stabbing me?
Should I
call
9-1-1?
Why is this street so deserted?
We need to raise taxes,
have paint and weed da y


and
make this happier, healthier street that
would discourage such
behavior.
This is all so confusing!


I need
to debate this with some friends


for few
days and try to come to a consensus.

Oil and Food
Free forum : Our Secret Place - Portal I_icon_minitimeTue Mar 17, 2009 2:13 am by Shelia
Saudi Arabia’s oil minister said today that petroleum-producing countries need a price of at least $60 a barrel to bring more energy resources on the market.

“If we want all hydrocarbon resources developed worldwide, 40 dollars is not enough,” Ali al-Naimi told reporters in Geneva, where he was attending an energy conference.

Crude oil returns are key, he said, because they can allow companies and countries to invest in new and potentially valuable fuel source such as ethanol, tar sands and heavy oils.

To develop these industries, the oil price will have to rise to a range between $60 and $75 a barrel...


Sad

more bad news

Commodity prices are down, but the bad news for consumers is that U.S. farmers are responding by cutting back their planting and production, reducing the chances of lower prices reaching the supermarket.

Clay T. Mitchell of Buckingham, Iowa, said he will reduce his corn acreage 26% when the planting season starts in mid-April. The 930 acres of corn that the 35-year-old farmer plans to grow would be his smallest effort ever, even though corn has long been his most profitable crop. He is planting more soybeans, which don't need expensive nitrogen fertilizer.

"Farming is very strange right now," said Mr. Mitchell, who had some of the best years of his farming career in 2007 and 2008 only to see the recession deflate commodity prices.

Across the nation, farmers are making plans to cut their production of corn, wheat, rice, peanuts, beef, pork, poultry and milk. In addition to growing more soybeans, farmer are also planning to grow crops more cheaply, such as by using less fertilizer and pesticides. Also, some farmers plan to grow just one crop on land that normally produces two each year, and to let some land lie fallow throughout the year.

Farmers are expected to plant the fewest acres of cotton since 1983, the Agriculture Department estimates. The USDA expects the production of meat from every major category of farm animal to drop for the first time since 1973.


What is going on ??? Are the powers that be TRYING to kill us off or what ???

I recently read an article that says this "crisis" in the housing market only affects 10% right now. This, oil and food rise affects everyone. $4 - $5 dollar gas prices again plus the high cost of not only food but everything else we need to live will cut deep.

I don't know what's going on. How did things get so far out of hand ???

tourists are flocking to the lake in hopes of seeing the rare mammal.

Rare sight ... "Pinky" is believed to be the only pink dolphin in the world,
and has "reddish" eyes. It is usually spotted with its dark grey mother.

One of a kind ... there are only 14 other known albino dolphins in the world,
all of them white.

Healthy glow ... "The dolphin appears to be healthy and normal other than its colouration, which is quite beautiful and stunningly pink," said
Mr Rue, who estimates he has spotted Pinky more than 40 times.

Free forum : Our Secret Place - Portal I_icon_minitimeSun Mar 15, 2009 4:45 am by Shelia
Last night I was up very late. I was in bed with the cats watching some show about a death row guy and I thought I heard a car door slam. I got up, put the light on, looked outside saw nothing. Then I thought I heard racing. I got up, put the light on, looked outside saw nothing. Around 2:30 I heard a noise on the back patio, I got up and just poked my head around the door and saw what I thought was someone looking through the door window.

My heart was racing, I looked 5 times and still thought I saw someone.

Goofy child. It was MY reflection !!!!

BWAHAHAHA !!!!

Can you imagine if I had called the police ??? OMG.

I tell this to Glenn and he's laughing hysterically. He says I gotta get that shade !!!

Parents Urged To Give $500 Per Child To Save Teaching Positions
School Leaders Retract Letter With Phone Call


ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. -- An Orange County principal on Thursday sent a letter to parents, asking them to contribute $500 per student to help his school save teachers' jobs amid massive budget cuts.

Trevor Honohan, the principal at Audubon Park Elementary School, sent the two-page letter, which also offered parents the ability to purchase naming rights to classrooms, office spaces or general areas inside the school for a minimum of $10,000.

In the letter, Honohan said, "my solution is simple but at the same time it will not be easy to achieve. I am asking for a financial contribution from those families who are in the position to do so."

Honohan said he's written a check for $1,000 to cover his two children.

Honohan said the goal is to raise $500,000, which he claims would save at least eight teaching positions.

Parents were given "Honohan's Hero" pledge cards and asked to return them within five days.

After learning that Honohan sent the letter, school leaders decided late Thursday to have the principal send telephone messages to the parents of Audubon Park's 875 students, telling them to disregard the letter.

The phone message stated:

"Hello, this is Trevor Honohan, Principal at Audubon Park Elementary School. The purpose of this phone call is to inform you that I included some premature information in my letter home to you on March 12th. In the letter I informed you that the proposed budget for the 2009-2010 school year would be at least $500,000 less than it was in 2008-2009. I have not received my formal budget yet. Therefore I cannot make this assumption. I also indicated a possibility of re-naming the school.

"This may not be a possibility at this time.

"The goal of the letter was to inform you of the budget crisis and gauge your interest level in assisting the school if need be. I appreciate the positive responses I have received and want to clear up any misconceptions derived from the letter. Thank you all for your continued support.

"Have a great night."

Prior to news of the letter being sent out, Local 6 News on Thursday afternoon talked with Orange County Superintendent Ron Blocker, who urged lawmakers to consider dropping sales tax exemptions, which could help raise at least $224 million for schools.

"These are times when you have to stop thinking about the vote and start thinking about the impact you're going to have on the state, the next generation, the next 10 years," Blocker said.

Positive responses. LOL, that's not what I read.

Every state INCLUDING Florida that has a lottery promised it's people lower taxes for schools IF they would pass the lottery proposal. It passed. What happened to that money ??? Well instead of putting it into an EDUCATION FUND, the city leaders put it in a GENERAL FUND where they bled it dry on anything and everything they wanted.

The nerve.

Ron Updates
Free forum : Our Secret Place - Portal I_icon_minitimeTue Mar 10, 2009 2:18 am by Debu
Heads up, there are many. I am gonna cut and paste em now. They were posted yesterday.

Ron has been in ICU since January.
Ron is now long term ICU
Ron has now been moved to another hospital for long term ICU care.
Ron is very ill still and has neurological damage - it is too early to know the extent of this. He has no idea about past events or what is going on presently. When I visit him (almost every day), if I need to leave his room for a moment he thinks each time I re-enter his room that I have just arrived.

I am sorry for not writing sooner. I have had a lot of things to do for Ron and I. And also, I read the last posts last month and they were not very nice.
I was not going to write, however, you all seem genuine and concerned for him.

I tell Ron about all of you every time I visit him - I tell him that "Shorty" says hi, and Deb etc.

Our Little Ghetto Backyard
Free forum : Our Secret Place - Portal I_icon_minitimeFri Mar 13, 2009 7:52 am by Emily
I've always wanted a birdfeeder so I bought one last week. I love watching the birds and the kitties get all excited so Dan put it on the deck. Well yesterday, the birds came. They were all those icky black grackles when I was really expecting cardinals.

Within an hour, there must have been 100 grackles out there. I saw a couple of cardinals but the grackles were scaring them away. There was one grackle who was directing traffic and he was the big bully one.

I was trying to explain the scene to Dan last night when he got home:

I told him there were a lot of black grackles out on the deck and they ate all the bird seed and how they were laying around in the yard and fighting and making a lot of noise and more and more kept coming. He went outside and said the deck was a mess with bird poop and seeds.

He said they were doing fly by pooping on the deck and said we had our own little bird ghetto in the backyard.

PETA People are insane
Free forum : Our Secret Place - Portal I_icon_minitimeFri Mar 13, 2009 2:19 am by Shelia
BATON ROUGE -- Chickens have feelings, too. And unappreciated brains.


That's the message delivered Wednesday to Gov. Bobby Jindal by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals as the group suggested that Louisiana use state funds to turn a closing Pilgrim's Pride poultry processing plant in Farmerville into a "Chicken Empathy Museum."


"The museum could feature exhibits such as video footage from research . . . showing how smart chickens are," the group wrote in a letter to Jindal. "The Chicken Empathy Museum will have educational displays that highlight interesting facts about chickens, including that chickens are intelligent animals with mental abilities comparable to cats, dogs and even primates."


PETA, known for its publicity stunts to attract attention to its vegetarian and anti-fur agenda, keyed into Jindal's offer to spend $20 million in state money to assist another company attempting to buy the north Louisiana plant from Pilgrim's Pride, which is in bankruptcy and reducing operations. The closing will put 1,300 people out of work.


Jindal said no to PETA's offer to use its funds along with state money to turn the plant into a "monument to compassion" honoring the barnyard fowl for its intellectual and social qualities rather than as a food.


"This issue is about the future of our people. Not chickens," Jindal said. "I'm from Louisiana. We think of the chicken first and foremost as an eating animal. I think this is a lot of squawking about nothing."


PETA suggested a restaurant at the museum serving "heart-friendly and delicious faux-chicken nuggets and a gift shop that could provide free plush chickens for kids, with tags reading, 'I am not a nugget!'


"Outside the museum, children could clamber through a preserved chicken-transport truck to experience how cramped and uncomfortable the trucks are," PETA


That plant in Farmerville decided to close at a moments notice. I felt so bad the night the local news showed the town hall meeting where the plant told it's workers and all involved they were closing. The look on their faces was total shock. Some were crying, some were very angry. That parish survived because of that plant. It's a poor parish and now most of the people there will suffer economic hardships like you would not believe. What's in Farmerville ?? Chicken plant and chicken farms. That is it.

The company is claiming bankruptcy but word is they are pulling up stakes to go to Mexico. Glenn has been working near a chicken farm over there and the guy that owns it says he's in the hole for $30,000 because of the move. That's just his gas bill for last month. Shocked His contract for chickens will not be honored, Pilgrim's Pride is using the bankruptcy to get out of paying their contract debts. It's a financial nightmare for everyone in that town.

Now PETA comes along and suggests this loon crap. What about the 1300 people losing their jobs ?? PETA wants THEM to voluntarily staff the museum. OMG, how stupid and insulting.

Help me Lawd.

"The PETA letter, signed by the group's executive vice president Tracy Reiman, ended with a request to Jindal to "please contact me so that we can begin the planning process."

If it were up to PETA we'd all be sucking dirt off of a rock for food.

If I had money I'd open a restaurant in Farmerville, cook only MEAT and give it away for free. Very Happy

I just read in the topic "Cars," about Mable reading a Dorothy Garlock book. I'd love to hear what y'all are reading.
I love to read! Mable introduced me to some good authors. One especially good was Fern Michaels.
I love mysteries best, but like adventure and other types, too. I just finished a very good one, Two Rivers, by T. Greenwood. It's a bit of a mystery and a love story. I also finished Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah -- about two girlfriends, opposite personalities, who go through life together. It was also good.
What are your favorites?
One of mine was Murder in Coweata County by Margaret Ann Barnes. It took place in GA and Mable's dad even talked to the murderer before he was caught.

In less than 24 hours yesterday Dallas had 3.52 inches of rain. This was recorded at 10:20 pm last night, and it is still raining.

A quote from the comments section at WFAA.com:

"We only have Chuck Norris and President Bush to thank for the rain. Chuck Norris moved the world with his pushups and Bush redirected the weather like he did for Katrina.

Those two are awesome..."

I am so soggy.
