Merry Christmas (NOT)


MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

FIRST CHRISTMAS CARD

Cleverly done!!!

Twas the month before Christmas

When all through our land,

Not a Christian was praying

Nor taking a stand.

Why the PC Police had taken away

The reason for Christmas – no one could say.

The children were told by their schools not to sing

About Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and things.

It might hurt people’s feelings, the teachers would say

December 25th is just a ‘ Holiday’.

Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit

Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it!

CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-Pod

Something was changing, something quite odd!

Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa

In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda.

As Targets were hanging their trees upside down

At Lowe’s the word Christmas – was no where to be found.

At K-Mart and Staples and Penny’s and Sears

You won’t hear the word Christmas; it won’t touch your ears.

Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-si-ty

Are words that were used to intimidate me.

Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen

On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton!

At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter

To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.

And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith

Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace

The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded

The reason for the season, stopped before it started.

So as you celebrate ‘Winter Break’ under your ‘Dream Tree’

Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.

Choose your words carefully, choose what you say

Shout MERRY CHRISTMAS,

not Happy Holiday!

Please, all Christians join together and

wish everyone you meet

MERRY CHRISTMAS

Christ is The Reason’ for the Christ-mas Season!

If you agree please forward, if not, simply delete.

It’s been a long time


Yes, it’s been a long time since I had a puppy nibbling on my feet. I ended up taking care of a friend’s puppy last night, well intentioned they are not sure whether they were going to keep the puppy or not. Cute little thing not sure if it’s eight weeks are not, looks younger, dark brown, motley brown female but definitely will be a smaller dog.

dog 008It’s as the saying goes, she is mommy’s little princess. Haven’t picked out a name yet, I wanted Ava. I wish the best of luck to my friend in her new puppy Ava and may God watch over them…

Oh and by the way this is being transposed from my speaking to print typing with Dragon natural speaking home edition speaker recognition software turn talk into type…

001So far so good with this Dragon speaking to type and my new La-Z-Boy recliner arrived today also, so I would hopefully will get a good nights sleep tonight and I be all fresh as a daisy, tomorrow. It takes a little getting used to unlikely putting my hands on the keyboard by the latest to it stop with the dragging of the fingers on the end the hand across the keyboard.

Left Over…..!!


Coffee

  1. Stain wood. Dab a washcloth in coffee and run it over a scratch in your wood furniture or hardwood floor. The coffee will stain the scratch and help blend it in.
  2. Kill the garlic and onion smell. After cooking with garlic or onions, rub used coffee grounds on your hands and wash with soap. No more smell.
  3. Keep bugs away. Used coffee grounds act as a natural barrier to insects. Line your garden or potted plants and keep pests out.
  4. Fertilize plants. A friend once told me to mix coffee grounds in the soil for tomato plants. I tried it and grew a crop of gorgeous tomatoes.
  5. Stop fridge odors. Coffee grounds act like baking soda in the fridge. Pour a cupful into a bowl, stick it on the top rack, and the grounds will absorb odors.

Tea

  1. Soak pots and pans. For grease and burnt-on food, fill the sink with warm water, drop in two used tea bags and soak the pan overnight. In the morning, the pan will scrub clean easily.
  2. Reduce under-eye circles. Pop leftover tea bags in the fridge. After they’ve completely cooled, place the bags over your eyes for 10 minutes. The cooled tea will reduce puffiness.
  3. Shine your shoes. Gently rub a used tea bag on your dark-colored shoes in a circular motion, then buff with a dry towel. The tea will clean your shoes and add a little shine. Warning: Liquid can damage suede. Use this trick only for leather or imitation-leather fabrics.
  4. Clean glass. Fill a spray bottle with half leftover tea and half water. Spray the mixture on windows and wipe off with old newspaper. You’ll get a streak-free shine without all the chemicals.
  5. Soothe skin. Tea can soothe irritation from poison ivy, sunburns, razor burns or bug bites. Just soak a cotton ball in cool tea and dab on.

Soda

  1. Clean stained pans. I recently let an artichoke steam too long; the pan ran out of water, and the bottom of the pan turned black. Scrubbing didn’t work but Coke did. I poured 1 cup of Coke in the pan and put it on low heat on the stovetop for 30 minutes. After, the stain washed right out.
  2. Remove rust. For small rusted items, place the item in a bowl of soda and let it sit overnight. In the morning, clean and polish the item and the rust will come off.
  3. Marinade meat. Soda makes a slightly sweet, slightly tangy marinade for chicken, steak or ham. Just soak the meat in soda for 30 minutes or more and cook as you normally would.
  4. Eliminate oil stains. To remove oil stains from your garage floor or driveway, soak the area with Coke, let it sit for one to two hours, and wash it off with a hose.
  5. Clean windshields. Shake up a can of soda and spray it over your windshield. Let the mixture sit for five minutes and wash with soap and water. Bugs and film will come right off.

Beer

  1. Polish gold jewelry. Pour beer into a shallow dish and soak your jewelry for one to five minutes. Take the pieces out and dry them off with a cloth, leaving jewelry clean and polished.
  2. Attract wasps. If you have a wasp problem on your porch, fill a container with beer and place it just off the porch. Attracted to the smell, the insects will dive into the container.
  3. Remove stains. Pour a small amount of beer on a stain on your clothes or carpet. Blot the stain with a dry towel and watch the stain disappear.
  4. Barbecue chicken. Beer makes for the easiest barbecue chicken recipe ever. Simply open a can of beer, place a whole chicken over the can and carefully set it on the grill.
  5. Make batter. Replace the water in a batter recipe with beer for a new flavor. Beer batter works great for chicken, vegetables and even breads.

Of course I never had any Beer Left Over….But I did find a Few Wasps in my Can…But that’s another Story…..

Land Crabs….


Must be that time of the Year…I had gone to the VAMC today for some PT and a Walk in App. with the Pulmonary Doc’s….This is one of those Apps. that you make because you Canceled last months meeting…which in turn was a make-up meeting for the one the month before. That one was to go over my CT Scan….I figure if they don’t come looking for me, then there is NO problem…

So I get home, and it’s all quite, and I’m doing some Paper work @ the Man Cave Desk/Workbench/Dinning Table. And I hear a noise like something is Moving things around by the Cable and power Connectors…
A little bit later I hear a sound in the Kitchen, I looked around just in time to see my walker move ever so slightly…

I see a NEW Room Mate….

And you wonder…


And you Wonder why I’m Crazy. I Just got through Reading about a Story, I Poster in FB, Yesterday. It seems there is a restaurant in San Francisco; Called Bacon, Bacon…It was closed down last week. ABC Local TV News Reported about it Yesterday…

Then Today I see CNBC Posting about It being Closed Today.

The Only Problem is that, ABC was reporting that Bacon, Bacon had Won in Court to Remain Open…

This is Why…I get a little Crazy…

Maybe it is my EGO


Maybe it is my EGO, but I have been getting P*ssed Off Lately. I know that there is Nothing I can do about it alone. Except maybe Rant and Rage or Howel in the Wilderness.

But it’s more or less about the younger Generation Lack of concern about other People and their Lives. It seems that they Care Nothing about their Fellow Man. Just what they can get for themselves with little on No Labor…the Quick chuckle at someone’s expense, And the Hell with the Consequence…

Case in Point the Trevor Martin Case, and these Fools Setting Up a Phone Call from an Expert giving Testimony in Court. Making a joke out of our Court System of Justice….

Wether you Believe him or Not, Things like this just sets up an Appeal for him if he louses…and Cost the Taxpayer more Money…and It seems as if the Media, just keeps this Sh*t Up in Peoples Faeces….I am Open Minded to Funny things or should I say, I am more Liberal Minded then a lot of my Friends…but that is Stupid.    End of Rant….

Well it’s Hurricane, Monsoon Season….down here in the Appendix of the USA. Or as you wish, Miami (a third world country)in Southern Florida. I know that into every ones life, a little Rain must Fall. But sometimes it makes you Crazy….This Morning it was Beautiful about 78°, Light Ocean Breeze and Extreme Sunshine….now at Noon we are under Extreme Thunder Storm Watch w/Lightning. Always with the Lightning….It’s 12:30pm and it’s so Dark the outside Light’s of the Building just came On.

As I Took a break for Lunch nothing fancy….Kung Foo Noodles…Add Water and Nuke..

As I was saying about the Weather, it’s 1:30pm now. Wile I was Eating, some fool is out side in the Rain on a Ride around Mower, cutting the Grass or what Passes for Grass here. Then he just came back with a Leaf Blower… It’s Still Raining,  thundering, and now and then I see a Distant Flash. Hopefully it will pass in a few Hours…

Glub, glub…


That’s Miamiease, for can it ‘get’ any Wetter…We are entering into our Monsoon Season. And it can get worse for Me…the Sky is Falling or better yet the Bathroom Ceiling I have Black Mold Showing.

When I First moved in I Noticed some black spots on the ceiling, I thought it looked like someone had cleaned their Paint brush and they would cover it at a later time…Jan 13 Cieling
Of course the direction of my Vision has been downward as of late, so I don’t Trip or Tangle up in my Air Hose…But I should have been paying Attention to the other signs. My lack of Sleep and lack of Energy, but springing right back when out side.

What gave it away was seeing a Drop of Water on the Toilet Bowl Seat Cover. it could not have come from the Sink, I had not used it for a day. So now we look up…a Utility Box Cover Plate with a Drop of Water getting ready to disconnect and Drop.

So I Cast my Eye upon the Spot that I thought was Paint, and low, and Behold I had a Bumper Crop of Black Mold. One of the Worst Types I could run into with my COPD.

I got in touch with the Mangement Office, and they sent out the Maintainance Guys. They were able to Chop out what was Visible and put Fans up in the Crawl space…To Dry it out, and they will be back in the Morning.
