I'm currently watching a show called Funniest Commercials of the Year. It's pretty funny. The SPCA commercial was good. Two guys were sitting on the couch. One guy was sleeping. So the other guy pulls him onto his lap and starts rubbing his belly like he was a pet. The tagline was "there are some things you can only do with a pet." Heeheehee...
“Young Blades” is set back in time over 400 years where the budding and chivalrous swordsmen learn the tricks of the trade from masters, including Captain Duval (Bruce Boxleitner), at the Musketeers military academy. D’Artagnan (Tobias Mehler), the son of the legendary Musketeer of the same name, is a ladies man as well as a fighter. He is challenged to become an even better warrior after he learns that his fellow student, Jacques (Karen Cliche), a phenomenal swordsman, has a deep secret: Jacques is really Jacqueline, a young woman who masquerades as a man in order to escape a price on her head and avenge the death of her father and imprisonment of her brother at the hands of the evil Mazarin (Michael Ironside). The other Young Blades are the rebellious Ramon (Zak Santiago), a poet who was disowned by his aristocratic Spanish family, but now calls the academy home, and Siroc (Mark Hildreth), a precocious inventor who dreams up “crazy” ideas such as submarines and flying machines and then builds them, 17th century style. The Musketeers’ loyalty lies with their homeland and protecting France’s young King Louis (Robert Michael Sheehan) from the evil genius, Cardinal Mazarin.

'Here's what Rumsfeld said Friday: "I think all of us have a sense if we imagine the kind of world we would face if the people who bombed the mess hall in Mosul, or the people who did the bombing in Spain, or the people who attacked the United States in New York, shot down the plane over Pennsylvania and attacked the Pentagon, the people who cut off peoples' heads on television to intimidate, to frighten – indeed the word 'terrorized' is just that. Its purpose is to terrorize, to alter behavior, to make people be something other than that which they want to be." '
I fixed the cd player in my car. There is a button on the side of the machine that has a hold, resume, and off option and apparently, to have the cd pick up from where it left off, the button has to be on resume. I don't know how the button could have shifted over to the off option, but it was. I didn't even know the button was there. I couldn't have accidentally pushed it since it's on the side of the machine.

I am contemplating parting ways with some of my house money to buy a dvd recorder. There's a website I go to that has reviews and comments about various dvd recorders and it looks as though Pioneer makes pretty good ones. According to the website there isn't one brand that is as reliable as your average vhs recorder, but Pioneer gets pretty good reviews. I think I need to get one before I lose any more A-Team episodes.

I got money from mom. Nothing from dad (as usual). My sister, brother-in-law and Jasmine got me the Ultimate Ric Flair dvd and the book Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda: Waystation. Right now I'm watching the Barry Windham portion of the Ric Flair dvd. Naturally, I went straight to that part of the dvd first. I got Mom a Freddy Fender cd, some sock like house shoes, some kitchen towels. I got Dad a classic tractors calendar and a Gaithers' Bluegrass Gospel cd. I got Mom and Dad both a fleece blanket and a portable cd player for the car. My sister, brother in law and Jassie got mom and dad something but they haven't delivered it yet. They are supposed to be down tomorrow. Christmas dinner was pretty good. Turkey, home made noodles, mashed potatoes, and more. Yum. Mom and Dad have cheesecake to eat later for dessert and I've got a chocolate cake.
*sigh* you just don't see wrestling like this anymore. Flair had some really good things to say about Barry Windham before this match began. That's good.

I think I got the two Christmas presents my sister got for me. I don't remember having anything ordered from Walmart.com so I'm guessing that package and the Amazon.com package I got in the mail today are for Christmas. I didn't open them, just in case they aren't wrapped. I did put them under the tree. We can't put the wrapped presents under the tree yet. My sister's psycho cat would get into them.
I finished the Ric Flair autobiography a little while ago. The end was really touching. I just wonder when the Blackjack Mulligan or Barry Windham autobiography will be written.

1) Adults should avoid using vulgar cuss words. If you expect to be accepted by others as someone with intelligence, develop a vocabulary that will project that image.
2) Stop telling me about how you use razor blades and sandpaper to make the wounds we see. I don't want to know how David Copperfield makes the Statue of Liberty disappear and I don't want to know that a chair shot to the head doesn't make you bleed.
3) So far there isn't a strong enough "Don't do as I do, do as I say" message coming through. Flair's partying ways are featured prominently in this book.
4) About half way through the book and Flair finally says something good about Barry Windham.
Today was my birthday and I got a cute little plastic jar from April (she said it would be perfect to hold my gobstoppers). I got avon products from Connie, a woman at work with whom I'm not really all that friendly. But I do help her work the copier so I guess she was showing her appreciation. Julie bought me a candy bar yesterday for my birthday and my sister got me a Linda Eder cd. She sings Broadway show tunes and such. I confess I opened that present yesterday, but I didn't play it until today. "Don't Rain on My Parade" and "Man of La Mancha" never sounded better.
Today was also the Christmas Party at work. We actually got by without having to listen to Grace before the meal. Considering we are all paid with government funds, I object to having to be forced to listen to Christian stuff at work as organized by management, but I normally don't make a fuss over it. We are in the bible belt. Julie gave me another candy bar today for helping her and John get the right answer on a case they were working on. I took it home and showed it to my dad and before I knew it he had it opened and was eating it! I never said he could have it.

I saw on some website that William Shatner was nominated for a Golden Globe. Yay!
Steffi's been sick. She threw up several times Friday night and Saturday morning. Didn't eat any solid food until this morning. We've been using a syringe to shoot melted ice cream and crushed up baby asprin down her throat. I think her problem now is maybe a sore throat or sore gums/teeth.
I got the Ric Flair autobiography in the mail today. I can't wait to start reading it.
I got my birthday present from my sister in the mail today along with my John Schneider greatest hits cd. Yes, he does have some great hits. I haven't opened my birthday present yet. The big day isn't until Wednesday.

I watched a few minutes of the Real Gilligan's Island reality show last night and was apalled by what I saw. One of the Skippers was apparently having a heart attack on the beach and I didn't see one medic come to his aid. That kind of irresponsibility should be punished by the FCC more than any 'wardrobe malfunction'. I guess the Republicans running the government care more about naked people than they do about saving someone's life.
Tonight on the Nightly News with Tom Brokaw they did a story about the son of the head guy at the UN making money from some company under investigation for some misdeeds regarding Iraq's Oil for Food program. Some Republican congressman said that Annan should resign from the UN because of his son having a job at this company. Well, I say when Dick Cheney severs all connections with Haliburton maybe someone can listen to this congressman who obviously has no clue about what he's saying. That's about as lame as Powell coming out and saying that the US wouldn't recognize the result of the Ukrainian election. Bush was all in a hurry to accept a flawed election result back in 2000 and now he thinks he can pass judgment on other countries election practices?
We had some strong winds over night last night. They blew over a tree in our pasture and it created two holes in the roof of an outbuilding we have. I'll have to see if we need to cover anything up in that building to protect it before we get more rain.

Last night I watched the last half hour or so of Galaxy Quest. I wanted to see the movie when it came out years ago, but never did. Now, I might want the dvd of it. It was pretty good.
I finally got some good, or at least decent, ideas for what to get my brother-in-law for Christmas. So, I placed the order and the all the packages should arrive by or around Dec. 9th.
Jasmine, my niece, had her Christmas with us last night. She was pretty excited and thrilled to get what we gave her. She got Jay Jay the Jet Plane character toys, My Little Ponies, cd's of kids' songs, some play dough, a little stuffed dog purse, some boohbah stuffed dolls and I don't know what else. I played with her for about an hour last night after mom and dad went to sleep. She would open her Jay Jay presents and every time she saw what the toy was she would say, "Oh my goodness." It was the cutest thing. She's not even 3 years old yet.

On some message board, I saw a series of messages about people's scariest movies. There are two movies that really scared me. I normally don't watch scary movies, so the list of possibilities is small. But these two I caught by accident. One, was a Brian Denehy movie where he played the serial killer John Wayne Gacy. I've been terrified of Denehy and clowns ever since. I think there were clowns in that movie. If not, it's getting the blame for it anyway. The other movie was a movie about a dead girl who couldn't be freed from here earthly spiritual bonds until some little china doll was rescued from a well or something. Still hate that movie.
Feel free to post a comment about which movies scare you.

Second House - Doublewide, good condition. Back yard was cluttered and felt claustrophobic. Big Negative - the road to get there was a single wide, blacktop road, steeper than the driveway we have now. I'd never get out in the winter. Kitchen and bathroom were great though.
Third House - This one was thrown in by the agent. I hadn't asked to see it but they thought I should because it was supposed to be in really great condition. And it was. It was a 4 year old doublewide on one acre with a three car garage. The yard was again cluttered with landscaping and kids' stuff (sand boxes, toys, etc.) The bad part - They wanted $100,000 for it. I'm not paying that much for one acre and a doublewide. Kitchen was good.
Fourth House - The one I wanted to see with the 45 acres. The road to get there was barely gravel and narrow and was over two miles long. I could buy it, but I could never make the payments because I'd lose my job due to excessive absenteeism caused by not getting out to work in the winter.
So, bottom line is that I am still on the house hunt. The agent was trying to talk me into a little cottage house on a half an acre. She thinks I won't want to do all the maintenance and upkeep on a larger property. Which may or may not happen. But, I've lived on a 20 acre farm for 25 years. I can't go from 20 down to one half just like that. And we couldn't get in to see the inside of the house - the key wouldn't work in any of the doors' locks. What is ironic is that the owner of this house works for the Dept. of Highways. You'd think he would get better roads out his way with his connections.

I have tentatively scheduled an appointment with the real estate woman to see some more properties this week. Hopefully, I'll get to see them and find something worthwhile. I would like to save somre more money though.
Here's one of the stories they had on the local news. See why I think this year's election will be hijacked, like last years'.
VOTER REGISTRATION DRIVE 'MISLEADING'
Publication: THE CHARLESTON GAZETTE
Headline: VOTER REGISTRATION DRIVE 'MISLEADING'
Byline: TOM SEARLS
For a mother of two teens trying to finish up college, $9 an hour as a
temporary customer service representative sounded good.
"I wanted to find something that would work around my schedule and be
flexible," said St. Albans resident Lisa Bragg.
After spending more than an hour with Charleston personnel agency
Kelly Services last week, Bragg was hired. "They wouldn't tell us at
first what this job was," the 37-year-old Bragg said Thursday.
Then she found out it was registering Republican voters at One Stop
convenience stores throughout the Charleston region.
But she won't be there today, the first day she was scheduled to be on
"I'm giving up a job that I need," she said. "It's the only decent job
While the job was to last six weeks, the $9 an hour was far above the
minimum wage of $5.15 Bragg was offered for most other temporary
Bragg feels her employers were misleading the public, even if it's not
illegal. Employees were to approach One Stop customers and ask if they
favor George Bush or John Kerry for president. If Bush was their
answer, they were then to inquire if the person was registered to vote
and offer them a voter registration card.
If the person supported Democrat Kerry, they were only to say thank
you and give them a registration card only if asked.
If asked questions, employees were instructed, "Only state you are
there to conduct a simple field poll to see what neighborhood support
is ... a nonpartisan registration drive."
They were told to quietly listen to any person who becomes angry and
to remember, "The goal is to register Republicans and to remain
"Is this the way it has to be? People have to be sneaky to make $9 an
hour?" Bragg said.
Employees were also given the number of a Kelly Services employee to
contact if there are problems. Contacted Wednesday, two different
employees said they would have someone from Sproul & Associates, the
firm paying for the survey, answer any questions.
Later, a Kelly Services employee who would identify himself only as
"Rob" initially said a message had been left with Ben Decker at
Sproul's office. He said he had no contact number for Decker, then
agreed to release a Michigan number.
A message left with Decker was not returned.
"[Kelly Services] said the less you know about the company, the better
off you are, especially if the media would come asking questions,"
said Bragg, an admitted Democrat. "That made me more curious than ever
as to who's behind this and what's going on."
Sproul & Associates appears to be operated by Nathan Sproul, former
head of the Arizona Republican Party and a wealthy GOP activist who
has been involved in petition drives. An Internet search shows Sproul
has received some financing from national Republican groups, though it
was not clear who is paying for the West Virginia work.
Bragg, and another person working for the group, said they were told
the owners of the One Stop stores had agreed to allow them to conduct
the work on the stores' lots. Patrick C. Graney III and Michael R.
Graney are listed as the principal owners of 42 One Stop stores,
according to the state Alcohol Beverage Control Administration.
Messages left at One Stop's headquarters in Belle were not returned.
For Bragg it's an economic loss, but one she carries with pride. She
asked about registering voters with another organization - a group
that treats those of all political persuasions the same - and found it
pays only $5.50 an hour.
"I just don't want to be in my hometown and mislead people," she said.

Mom and Dad are back in Cincinatti. I have the house to myself again. Yay!
Here's a story of a real Baseball Hero. Schilling should get MVP.
Wednesday, October 20, 2004
Well, Dad was a little wrong in his explanation of the pig project. Dad bought a pig from a guy and said that he would keep the pig at the former owner's house and then take it directly to the slaughterhouse on the day of his appointment to have the pig slaughtered. I came home tonight and followed Fritz around the house down into the front yard where Dad's truck is, and guess what is in the bed of the truck. Yep, cute old Wilbur is there snorting and wanting attention. I looked at him briefly and he had this look of glee in his eyes that someone had come to pay attention to him :( How am I supposed to look at those wrapped packages of frozen pork now???

April had her monthly evaluation today and we were both surprised to see that it was pretty good. We both know she is an excellent employee, but the boss always sides with the new "pampered one" over in that other county (lydia), so we really didn't believe that justice would prevail. And today at work, we had no heat for about half of the day. The thermostats did not have any readings for most of the morning - I guess they were completely turned off. It was really cold. I think when we left it had reached a balmy 64 degrees. I had covered up with my coat for most of the day. We are having a team meeting next month and it's supposed to last 5 hours. Most of that time, by the looks of the agenda, will be devoted to me talking about how to refer cases for audit correctly. Yay, more public speaking. Not.
I was going to go to Walmart today to pick up one of those shopping cards or gift cards so I could buy some stuff online without giving everyone my account information, but it was raining. I guess that's a good thing. The Hugh Jackman movie, Van Helsing, is being released tomorrow on DVD so I could possibly get that while I'm out tomorrow.

April asked Lydia to prepare a case for audit on Tuesday and Lydia actually made a face at her. Yep, we are all grown-ups at work. Especially those who've been there 30 years. And somehow, April's going to be the one lectured. I just know it.
Everyone at work has been sick. I think they gave it to me, but I'm not completely convinced. I've doubled up on the Vitamin C so maybe if I do get it, it won't be so bad. Polly got one of those coveted flu shots yesterday. She told me today that she was so sick that one of the bosses was sending her home. Hope she passed the flu along to all the mean people up there before she left.

I saw on the Today show that the folks at Jibjab.com have created another Democrat/Republican cartoon video, like "This Land is Your Land", only this one, titled, "It's Good to be in DC" is done to the song, "Dixieland" (I wish I was in Dixie, hooray, hooray, blah, blah, blah - yeah, that song) You can check it out at Jibjab.com or atomfilms.com. It was pretty funny.
I changed the name of "Tin Foil Hat" over in the blogs section to "The Trenchcoat Chronicles" because that's where the link took me when I clicked on it today. He's changing some things around so I'll probably be changing the name of the link in the near future.
Another new episode of Andromeda airs tonight on the Sci Fi channel at 7pm eastern. Check it out.
Thursday, October 07, 2004
Anyway, four whole days off and I can't wait. As I said, I might do some shopping tomorrow. I might give the dogs a bath. I hate to bath Fritz since he's lost so much hair already from the other baths, but he really needs one. Sunday, Polly, Scarlett and I are planning to meet for lunch at Pizza Hut and then check out an open house that the real estate agency is having for a doublewide that Dad and I drove by last weekend. It will be good to hang out with Polly and Scarlett. Next week sometime, my sister and brother-in-law will be by to eradicate the evil begin2search toolbar and other spyware from the computer. And then Mom and Dad will be going to Cincinnatti to spend a day or two with them later next week. Yay! The house will be all mine again for a that time! Hopefully Steffi won't cry as much as she did the last time when I went to bed and didn't let her in my room. She doesn't like to be separated from people.
I've been having trouble posting and publishing this blog. It's been taking forever and then the post doesn't even appear on the webpage for I don't know how long. I sent an email to blogger support for help because last night after trying to publish for 7 whole minutes, the thing timed out and I got some kind of error message. Hopefully, Blogger can tell me what's going on. My other blogs aren't having this trouble. I guess it could be the size of my blog, but I don't know if my blog is large, extremely large, average sized or what. Hmmm.............

I'm not sure how I like this Mozilla Firefox browser. Some of the pages look funny. But it beats that stupid begin2search thing. One bad thing is that the Animal Rescue Site webpage always has a popup for their shop and this browser blocks it. Oh well, I never buy anything from them, but some people do.

I heard today on the news that apparently Martha Stewart is going to spend her five month sentence here in WV. The news people interviewed residents of the town and they were all excited that Martha could do a lot to help the community. Inmates at this facility are allowed out to do community service - anything from trash detail to singing in choirs. The residents on the news hoped she would have some good ideas about the flower beds in the town. It's a shame that her mother may have a more difficult time visiting her here instead of the two other facilities that she would have liked to have been assigned to. But hopefully, the time will go fast and Martha will be home before she knows it. And to satisfy the cynics out there, the news reporter stated that a nickname for this facility was "camp cupcake". So, she won't be working on any chain gangs.
I'm still suffering the effects of the Begin2search toolbar bug. It has hijaced my Internet Explorer browser. I don't know where we picked this thing up, but we can't get rid of it yet. I found some directions about deleting lines out of some kind of registry. But when the directions start out by saying, "Make a back up of the registry.", that sounds just a little bit serious, like I'm not sure I'm the one who wants to be touching the registry. I'll have to do some more research to see if there' s another way to get rid of this. If you have XP, I think there's a patch you can download, but I have 98.
The new season of Andromeda has begun. Check out my "The earth hath skin" blog for my comments thus far.

All these people around you .. they're necessary, sure, but they need to be watched. They could rise through the ranks like a crushing army of office ninjas; highly skilled human resources, trained in the art of doing things well, ready to usurp you.
Be ready. Claim credit for their work. Squish them down at every possible opportunity. Screw them over. Don't give them enough money. Ensure your reign will last for a thousand years, but never, ever let them think they can compete.

Julie got back from her Florida vacation. She said she would have laid out on the beach, but there was no beach thanks to the last few hurricanes. It's good to have Julie back. April and I need another smarty-pants to joke around with.

Also today, we received gift bags for employee appreciation week. The gifts were post-it notes. But the tissue paper that was stuffed in the gift bag was the real prize. I got mine and Tony's and wallpapered a shelf in my cube. It has a swirl and stars pattern so it goes great with my magic wand. Then later, April and I got John's tissue paper and April taped it to the file cabinet in my cube as sort of a table cloth. My cube's so pretty now. LOL! Oh, and April and I had some left over ice cream from yesterday's ice cream sundae even to celebrate employee appreciation week. Tomorrow is "hot dog it's Friday" for employee appreciation week. I'm not a big hot dog fan, too many Jay Leno jokes about what they are made of, but they are free so I will have to participate.
And Scarlett, my dad says he knows a guy who had a big swollen spot sprout on his cheek bone and it turned out to be a sinus problem. So, the spider bite might not be the culprit.

I got a couple of magazines at walmart. One is a house decorating magazine. Too bad I don't have a house yet. That real estate woman never did call me back. The other magazine is a People magazine with Siegfried and Roy on the cover. And apparently, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are dating. They should both find people outside the business. Dating people in show business doesn't seem to be working for them. Hopefully, it will work out though. I bought the magazine for an update on Roy. I don't really have much interest in who's dating whom in Hollywood.

INWARD INSPIRATIONAL SEEKER
While your adventures take you to amazing heights, your mind always remains grounded. Our initial calculations reveal that you are an Inward Inspirational Seeker.
Your idea of adventure is not instant gratification or quick-fix thrills. You stay focused on your greater goals and never allow your thoughts to stray far from the purpose of self-improvement and fulfillment. Your adventures are genuine-you're not one for pretense or trying to impress others.
I would have gone on to the in-depth quiz, but with a dial up connection, it was taking forever for these questions to load. Notice, it doesn't say anything about patience up there in the IIS discription :)

I didn't get to see any properties today. The road on which one of the properties is located was flooded. Hopefully I will get to reschedule sometime next week.
I wonder how Polly's Wooten Manor is weathering the storm. She has had trouble with the rain in the past. If only she would POST on her blog once in a while, some people might know what's going on in her life.

I was supposed to view some properties tonight with a real estate agent, but she had to cancel. Her kid was sick. We're supposed to do it Friday, but with Hurricane Ivan bringing rain to our neck of the woods by the weekend, I don't know if we'll get to do it then.
I'm watching the Discovery Health Body Challenge: Hollywood. The contestants are actors and two of them were on the Brady Bunch - Peter and Cindy. It's interesting watching how they interact with each other as adults. Peter Brady is looking pretty good.

Today at work, Angie came into John's office and said, "I have great news." And I said, "You've just saved a bunch of money by switching to Geico." LOLOL!!! I love that commercial. John and Angie laughed. Her great news was that she won a $200.00 grill from Walmart. John's birthday is Wednesday. We might have to do a little something for him. He claims he might call in sick that day, but we will just celebrate without him.
I'm watching the Canadian Country Music Awards. Don't know half of these people. But I did see George Canyon, Nashville Star competitor, win the Rising Star Award. Good for him! Paul Brandt has apparently redone the song, "Convoy". It's a 1970's truck driving song that has been used recently in a car commercial.
Dad says my car insurance may skyrocket. He knows a man who has the same insurance and his went up $600.00 on two vehicles. That will teach my dad for changing our insurance. He needs to just accept that all insurance companies are crooked and are just out to steal money from hardworking people.

Tomcat, our cat, not the neighborcat, showed up at the house today with a swollen front paw that he wouldn't put any weight on. I guess he broke something. I hope it heals up. I also hope he can get back to the porch to get something to eat once in a while. That neighborcat won't let any cats around the food these days. Except for Shade, my sister's cat. I think Shade and Neighborcat are sweet on each other. Neighborcat might have to be fixed so he won't be so aggressive anymore.
We are having a farewell party for Scarlett at work at the end of the month. She is transferring to Polly's office. I have been thinking of ideas for the party and gifts and such. I think she will be pleased. Usually, I'm not the one throwing the parties. I try to get out of all that kind of work because it usually leads to kitchen work. Yuck. But, I think because I'm the oldest of me, April and Scarlett, that I was silently nominated for the leadership role. Or else, someone thought my Goddess Tiara meant that I was some kind of leader. Hmmm.... Monday, April and I will be going down to the State Office for some training. I don't need the training but I'm going anyway since April has done her best to make everyone she has training with hate me. LOL. They hate me because I already know about the new programming and April has an easier time with her work because of me. It will be fun to be in the same room with all the other people. Barb and Angie from P-Burg will be going with us. It should be fun. I think we are all looking past the training to the lunch after. There's a much better selection of restaurants around the state office than we have around our offices.
I just saw a commercial for the Tony Danza Show, a new talk show on TV. Tony Danza is looking very old. He needs some botox or airbrushing or something. Digital tv will not be kind to him.

"Johnny Knoxville will play Luke Duke opposite Seann William Scott's Bo
Duke in "The Dukes of Hazzard," a big-screen version of the 1980s television
series that Warner Bros. Pictures is mounting in association with Village
Taken from this website, the article also says that Jessica Simpson has screen tested for Daisy Duke. So, my question is, is this casting for Bo and Luke appropriate? Luke is supposed to be the smart one, but quite frankly, I haven't seen Johnny Knoxville in a smart role. And I don't know if I know Seann William Scott at all. If anyone out there has an opinion on the casting, please post.
