Another Crappy Day?

As I look out the window at work, I see it raining pretty hard, I've heard thunder and seen lightning. All I can think of is...."IT'S ABOUT TIME IT'S RAINING AND NOT FREAKING SNOWING"

I am soooo sick of winter! So, no it is not a crappy day. Maybe if I owned a snowmobile I would have a different attitude....nah I'd still hate winter.

Happy Spring, that is if it's really here to stay.

Judgement day

Lately, I've been doing a lot of reflecting. I know, that means this blog is going to be boring. Still, I think it's something everyone should do once in a while. I've recently been reading the comments on some articles, blogs, guestbooks and such where people are real quick to put someone down. It doesn't seem that they even take the time to know who they're putting down. They just make quick judgements and send it out to the electronic world for all to see. Those reading it are most likely going to believe and in turn be predetermined to that way of thinking before they see for themselves. I know we've all done it. I have in the past. For example, I've gone to concerts and thought to myself, "How can that idiot be onstage and making all that money while I sit here broke and could be doing a better job. What does he have that I don't?" Well, the answer is quite simple. You don't know what he has. You don't know what road he's had to travel to get where he is. You don't know what trials and tribulations he's had to go through. You don't know what is going on in his life at that particular moment. Ya, he may be on the big stage performing for thousands of people, but he could also be going through some of the worst years of his life. He could be dealing with drug problems, family, or whatever. Maybe he's just having a bad night. You just don't know. While we all tend to aspire to be the best person we can be, we all probably judge others on a daily basis without knowing the full story. I think it's okay to judge someone, but, to place it on the internet for all to see is just, in my opinion, not very appropriate. I generally keep these thoughts to myself and don't express them publically, anonymously or not. The judgements of those where you don't know the complete picture can cause hurt and/or turmoil in their lives. If it's someone you know personally, talk to them, don't post it on the internet. I've learned to pay compliments even when I know they're having a rough time of it. A little confidence can, sometimes, go a long way. I know, people who do reviews and critics and such, well, they fall into a different category. The people they are judging are in the limelight and expectant of the criticisms and reviews. I'm talking more on a personal level. Just think about it...would you want someone to do that to you. I guess look at it this way...When you're standing there in purgatory awaiting the judgement of your eternal destiny, do you want them judging you for one or two bad days or the whole picture of who you are. I thought so, Rock on...

Still blocked

Hi folks, I still going thru a bout of writers block, (actually, just being lazy as hell) so I thought I'd share a couple jokes I got via e-mail today

A Short Love Story

A man and a woman who had never met before, but were both married to other people, found themselves assigned to the same sleeping room on a Trans-continental train.

Though initially embarrassed and uneasy over sharing a room, they were both very tired and fell asleep quickly.....

He in the upper bunk and she in the lower. At 1:00 AM, the man leaned down and gently woke the woman saying, "Ma'am, I'm sorry to bother you, but would you be willing to reach into the closet to get me a second blanket? I'm awfully cold."

"I have a better idea," she replied. "Just for tonight, let's pretend that we're married."

"Wow! That's a great idea!" he exclaimed.

"Good," she replied. "Get your own f*#kin blanket."

After a moment of silence, he farted.

The End

and next...

The Aisle Seat

Two Radical Arab Terrorists boarded a flight out of London . One took a window seat and the other sat next to him in the middle seat. . . Just before takeoff, a U.S. Marine sat down in the aisle seat. After takeoff, the Marine kicked his shoes off, wiggled his toes and was settling in when the Arab in the window seat said, "I need to get up and get a coke."

"Don't get up," said the Marine, "I'm in the aisle seat, "I'll get it for you."

As soon as he left, one of the Arabs picked up the Marines shoe and spat in it.

When the Marine returned with the coke, the other Arab said, "That looks good, I'd really like one, too."

Again, the Marine obligingly went to fetch it. While he was gone the other Arab picked up the Marines other shoe and spat in it.

When the Marine returned, they all sat back and enjoyed the flight.

As the plane was landing, the Marine slipped his feet into his shoes and knew immediately what had happened.

"Why does it have to be this way?" he asked. "How long must this go on? This fighting between our nations? This hatred? This animosity? This spitting in shoes and pissing in cokes? When will it all end?"


Have a nice day!!!

Never Forget

I think when I have writers block, I will instead, share some of the emails I get with you.

USS New York

It was built with 24 tons of scrap steel from
World Trade Center

It is the fifth in a new class of
warship - designed for missions that include special operations
against terrorists. It will carry a crew of 360 sailors and 700
combat-ready Marines to be delivered ashore by helicopters and
assault craft.

Steel from the World Trade Center was melted
down in a foundry in Amite , LA to cast the ship's bow section. When
it was poured into the molds on Sept 9, 2003, "those big rough
steelworkers treated it with total reverence," recalled Navy Capt.
Kevin Wensing, who was there. "It was a spiritual moment for
everybody there."

Junior Chavers, foundry operations
manager, said that when the trade center steel first arrived, he
touched it with his hand and the "hair on my neck stood up." "It had
a big meaning to it for all of us," he said. "They knocked us down.
They can't keep us down. We're going to be back."

The ship's
motto? "Never Forget"

Please share this so everyone can see what we are made of in this

Drs. and Guns

I recieved this email today. I don't know why they sent it to me, I don't own a doctor.

(A) The number of physicians in the U.S. is 700,000

(B) Accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year are 120,000

(C) Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171.

Statistics courtesy of U.S. Dept of Health Human Services.

Now think about this:

(A) The number of gun owners in the U.S. is 80,000,000. (Yes, that's 80 million..)

(B) The number of accidental gun deaths per year, all age groups, is 1,500.

(C) The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is 0.000188

Statistics courtesy of the FBI
So, statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.
So, remember, 'Guns don't kill people, Doctors do.'
Please alert your friends to this alarming threat. We must ban doctors before this gets completely out of hand!!!!!
Out of concern for the public at large, we have withheld the statistics
on lawyers...
for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical

What if the Doctor owns a gun? What are the statistics for that?

Things I learned this weekend

I learned that sometimes you hurt the ones you love the most, even tho they may still love you, it still doesn't make it okay. I learned that selfishness caused me to miss what could've been some of the best years of my life. I learned that it's okay to be ashamed or feel guilty of something from the past because that's not who I am now. I learned that I can speak openly and freely as long as when I speak openly and freely I am honest with whom I am speaking to and with myself. I learned that although you can't change the past, when someone is very special, you can move forward. I learned how much pain can be caused by just not being there. I learned that everyone makes mistakes and that I am not alone. I learned that you can't plant the seed and return to see the blossom and understand the journey it took to get there. I learned that it was a hard struggle for someone to be able to forgive and move forward. Yet, because they have, my heart is lighter. I learned someone had to be stronger at an early age than I'd ever been in my entire life. I learned that I am lucky to know such a person and to have them back in my life. Oh, and I also learned that someone in my life is really impressed with the chili cheese fries at Olivers...I love you
