What I’ve learned from Facebook lately..

ShareTweet   Friendship is a sheltering tree. ~Samuel Taylor Coleridge I’ve always said I have a love/hate relationship with FaceBook.  I love gathering with friends, old and new, and tons of extended family.  Its nice to lend a hug when someone is in need and its always nice to receive a hug when my day is not going all that grand.  I love being back in touch with all my cousins, too.  I, also love all my new local friends that i’ve made since I moved to South Carolina.  Its nice to keep in touch with friends we have had to leave behind when we’ve moved. I hate that FaceBook knows things about my family or friends before I do.  I hate that FaceBook wants to know everything.  I hate misunderstandings caused by lack … Read entire article »

Soapbox in the name of Obamacare and Free Enterprise

ShareTweet It takes something extraordinary, these days, to get me to hurt myself, physically, to open this lappie.. but here she blogs… Okay.  At first, I didn’t know what to say (great opening for a debate, eh?)  No, this is not a debate.  These are some facts, that are personal, and not up for debate. I consider Home Delivered Pizza a privilege and convenience food.  I could care less if the pie went up a dollar each. BUT.. This is just the beginning of getting our heads out of the sand.  I have kept my politics out of blog all year, which means I’ve been stewing to spew forth.. Obamacare is the beginning of something so ugly that I’ve not been wanting to talk about it. I’m depressed.  You should be, too. Before Obamacare, I had to stop … Read entire article »

What if the World Currency Changed or Collapsed? Tomorrow.

ShareTweet Image via Wikipedia The American Dollar is in more than poor shape. IT IS currently considered the world currency.  There are populations of people who do not believe that the American Dollar can ever collapse.  At the same time, the United State’s current answer to debt is to print more money.  Worthless money. I don’t endorse the products that spawn this video, but I encourage you to take the time to watch and learn some things you may not have known.  Don’t keep your head in the sand.  This is a serious problem. You may have your food storage.  You may have emergency supplies. I need more trash bags, medical supplies, candles, and lamp oil.  What do you need?  What if you woke up, tomorrow, and your dollar was as good as Iraqi … Read entire article »

The new form of DeadBeat Parents..

ShareTweet I’ve been wanting to blog about this subject for over a year but it was hard for me to consider that I really might tick some people off by what I’m going to say. Wednesday, I pulled into CVS, next to a car that was running, with rather loud music playing. The ONLY real problem I had about this is there was a child in the back seat, by himself. I want to say he was five or six.. but what is wrong with people? You can’t just leave them to run in and get something at a pharmacy. I’ve, recently encountered a worse situation, outside of Blockbuster and BB’s attitude about the “problem not being their problem” pissed me off even more. Both of these times I didn’t have … Read entire article »

Just Say Nothing at ALL!

ShareTweet Know your 5th Amendment Rights. Exercise your right to remain silent! Even if you are innocent, you should say nothing to police, at all. Ever. Nothing good can come from your words. “No Matter What!” A Police Officer’s comments to defend you is Hearsay. A Police Officer’s comments against you is admissible in court. Admit nothing even if you are guilty. Just say nothing at all. … Read entire article »

Know Your Stuff – Protect Your Identity

ShareTweet What would you do if you lost your purse or wallet today? THE VERY FIRST THING YOU MUST DO IS CONTACT YOUR LOCAL POLICE DEPARTMENT AND FILE A THEFT REPORT. The best protection that you can give yourself is to walk into a copy store and place the entire contents of your wallet down flat on a copier. After you make the copy, turn the cards over and copy the backs. Now you know exactly what is missing, if anything is ever lost or stolen. Now you have your account numbers and the customer service telephone numbers in the same place for your debit and credit cards. Note that most cards have a separate number, from customer service, to report lost or stolen cards. The faster you call to report them lost or stolen, … Read entire article »
