Email Comments 4,515 WASHINGTON -- There may be something rotten at McDonald's -- and it's not a year-old Happy Meal.

The owner of a franchise in Canton, Ohio enclosed a handbill in employees' paychecks that threatened lower wages and benefits if Republicans don't win on Tuesday.

"As the election season is here we wanted you to know which candidates will help our business grow in the future," reads the letter. "As you know, the better our business does it enables us to invest in our people and our restaurants. If the right people are elected we will be able to continue with raises and benefits at or above our present levels. If others are elected, we will not. As always, who you vote for is completely your personal decision and many factors go into your decision."

The note ends with a list of candidates McDonald's believes "will help our business move forward." It names Republicans John Kasich for governor, Rob Portman for Senate, and Jim Renacci for Congress. With the letter was a biography of Renacci.

"The handbill endorses candidates who have in essence pledged to roll back the minimum wage and eviscerate the safety net that protects the most vulnerable members of our workforce," said Attorney Allen Schulman of Canton law firm Schulman Zimmerman & Associates, which received the documents from an employer who stepped forward. "But it's more than that. When a corporation like McDonald's intimidates its employees into voting a specific way, it violates both state and federal election law. It's no surprise to anyone that Ohio is a battleground state in this election, and for a multinational corporation like McDonald's to threaten employees like this is morally and legally wrong. This despicable corporate conduct is the logical extension of the Citizens United decision, which has unleashed corporate arrogance and abuse."

Schulman turned over the documents to local prosecutors, asking them to "investigate this matter for a criminal violation." Ohio election law specifically states that no corporation "shall print or authorize to be print...or post or exhibit in the establishment or anywhere in or about the establishment...handbills containing any threat, notice, or information that if any particular candidate is elected or defeated, work in the establishment will cease in whiole or in part, or other threats expressed or implied, intended to influence the political opinions or votes of...its employees."

On Friday, franchise owner Paul Siegfried apologized in a written statement, saying the communication was "an error of judgment on my part." "Please know it was never my intention to offend anyone," he added. "For those that I have offended, I sincerely apologize."

and on another note, let's avoid MCDS!!

"WASHINGTON -- Colorado Republican Senate candidate and Tea Party favorite Ken Buck last year said he "strongly" disagrees with one of the bedrock principles of American society: the separation of church and state.

"I disagree strongly with the concept of separation of church and state," said Buck at a forum for GOP Senate candidates last year. "It was not written into the Constitution. While we have a Constitution that is very strong in the sense that we are not gonna have a religion that's sanctioned by the government, it doesn't mean that we need to have a separation between government and religion. And so that, that concerns me a great deal."

In his statement, he also criticized President Obama for calling the White House Christmas tree a "holiday tree." "It's just flat wrong in my mind," he added. His remarks were captured by the site ThinkProgress, which also has video.

As former solicitor general Paul Clement points out, the phrase "separation of church and state" is not technically in the First Amendment. It's a phrase coined by Thomas Jefferson, who wrote in 1801 that "religion is a matter which lies solely between Man & his God" and argued the Constitution required "building a wall of separation between Church & State." But as ThinkProgress' George Zornick notes, the Constitution does prohibit the endorsement or establishment of a state religion.
This issue of "separation of chuThomas Jefferson has been misquoted, like I've been misquoted, out of context," said Angle. "Thomas Jefferson was actually addressing a church and telling them through his address that there had been a wall of separation put up between the church and the state precisely to protect the church from being taken over by a state religion. That's what they meant by that. They didn't mean we couldn't bring our values to the political forum."
More recently, in a Delaware Senate debate, O'Donnell asked, "Where in the Constitution is the separation of church and state?" When Coons responded that the First Amendment bars the government from making laws respecting the establishment of religion, O'Donnell replied, "You're telling me that's in the First Amendment?" The audience audibly gasped.
Additionally, as has documented, Buck's claim about the White House Christmas tree is "hooey." The Huffington Post contacted the Buck campaign for comment but did not receive a reply.
UPDATE, 12:17 p.m.: At a July 12 Tea Party meeting, Buck said that "the secularism that is developing in this country is a very scary concept." He has also advocated for the public posting of the 10 Commandments. As a Windsor 912 meeting on June 3, Buck explained in more detail his thoughts on separation of church and state:

Thursday : I thought that this excerpt from wickipedia about this man that is part of this whole think tank of the new republican party and how they have been courting the religious vote... and the backing of sarah Palin as as the new "dumb" spokesperson for the repub party!! They are after courting the very rich and powerful also ...most americans are not aware of how they are getting fucked!

William Kristol (born December 23, 1952) is an American conservative[1] political analyst and commentator. He is the founder and editor of the political magazine The Weekly Standard and a regular commentator on the Fox News Channel.
Kristol is associated with a number of prominent conservative think tanks. He was chairman of theNew Citizenship Project from 1997 to 2005. In 1997, he co-founded the Project for the New American Century (PNAC) with Robert Kagan. He is a member of the board of trustees for the free-market Manhattan Institute for Policy Research, a member of the Policy Advisory Board for theEthics and Public Policy Center, and a director of the Foreign Policy Initiative. He is also one of the three board members of Keep America Safe, a think tank co-founded by Liz Cheney and Debra Burlingame, and serves on the board of the Emergency Committee for Israel.

Kristol was key to the defeat of the Clinton health care plan in 1993. In the first of what would become legendary strategy memos circulated among Republican policymakers, Kristol said the party should "kill," not amend, President Clinton's health care plan. Kristol's memo immediately united Republicans behind total opposition to Clinton's reform plan. A later memo advocated the phrase, "There is no health care crisis," which Senate Minority Leader Bob Dole used in his response to Clinton's 1994 State of the Union address.

Kristol was a leading proponent of the Iraq War. In 1998, he and other prominent foreign policy experts sent a letter to President Clinton urging a stronger posture against Iraq. Kristol argued that Saddam Hussein posed a grave threat to the United States and its allies: "The only acceptable strategy is one that eliminates the possibility that Iraq will be able to use or threaten to use weapons of mass destruction. In the near term, this means a willingness to undertake military action as diplomacy is clearly failing. In the long term, it means removing Saddam Hussein and his regime from power. That now needs to become the aim of American foreign policy.".[6]
In the 2000 Presidential election, Kristol was a supporter of John McCain. In response to a question from a PBS reporter about the Republican primaries, he stated, "No. I had nothing against Governor Bush. I was inclined to prefer McCain. The reason I was inclined to prefer McCain was his leadership on foreign policy.".[7]
After the Bush administration developed its response to September 11th, 2001, Kristol said, "We've just been present at a very unusual moment, the creation of a new American foreign policy." [7] Kristol ardently supported the Bush administration's decision to go to war with Iraq. In 2003, he and Lawrence Kaplan wrote The War Over Iraq, in which he described the reasons for removing Saddam.
As the military situation in Iraq began to deteriorate in 2004, Kristol argued for an increase in the number of U.S. troops in Iraq. In 2004, he wrote an op-ed strongly criticizing Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, saying he "breezily dodged responsibility" for planning mistakes made in the Iraq War, including insufficient troop levels.[8] In September 2006, he wrote, with fellow commentator Rich Lowry, "There is no mystery as to what can make the crucial difference in the battle of Baghdad: American troops."[9]
This was one of the early calls for what became the Iraq War troop surge of 2007 four months later. In December 2008, Kristol wrote that the surge was "opposed at the time by the huge majority of foreign policy experts, pundits and pontificators," but that "most of them — and the man most of them are happy won the election, Barack Obama — now acknowledge the surge’s success."[10]
Kristol was one of many conservatives to publicly oppose Bush's second U.S. Supreme Court nominee, Harriet Miers. He said of Miers: "I'm disappointed, depressed, and demoralized. [...] It is very hard to avoid the conclusion that President Bush flinched from a fight on constitutional philosophy. Miers is undoubtedly a decent and competent person. But her selection will unavoidably be judged as reflecting a combination ofcronyism and capitulation on the part of the president."
He was a vocal supporter of the 2006 Lebanon War, stating that the war is "our war too," referring to the United States.
Kristol was an ardent promoter of Sarah Palin, advocating for her selection as the running mate of John McCain in the 2008 U.S. Presidential Election months before McCain chose her.[11][12]
In response to Iran's nuclear program, Kristol supports the strong sanctions. In June 2006, at the height of the Lebanon War, he suggested that, "We might consider countering this act of Iranian aggression with a military strike against Iranian nuclear facilities. Why wait?"[13]
In 2010, Kristol criticized the Obama administration and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Admiral Mike Mullen for an unserious approach to Iran. He wrote, "The real question is what form of instability would be more dangerous--that caused by this Iranian regime with nuclear weapons, or that caused by attacking this regime's nuclear weapons program. It's time to have a serious debate about the choice between these two kinds of destabilization, instead of just refusing to confront the choice."[14]

Doing the things that I fear you the most makes me strnger!

Singin alng to a logististics commercial…
That amazingly brings out the subliminal feelings of amore (Italian for love)
So having a couple of bowls to escape
  when my better half finally goes for a walk and colin’s taking a sleep…

Mess has become the most frequent persistent 4 letter word in our  roller coaster ride for the last 2 years of this relationship’
I feel I often cant work hard enough to stop my honey from worrying..
Some folks love to worry and they become consumed with it...
 what can be their drama today??

So Im listening to fox…why because I want to often hear what the enemies to our democratic ideals are saying…
Fox has never been a voice speak for the right is almost orwellian what this station is getting away with when it claims to be a "fair and balanced" station
we have a
when we peak outside our caves do we have a natural fear  of our world coming to an end??

So a couple of bowls to get into psychic thinking or just deciding what my antagonists are up to in life’s chess game…

It’s exciting to meet a challenge and not have the constant anxiety of not being able to even meet the challenges on a daily basis…

You know what my challenge is??
To figure out a plan for out future…
My child, his mom and me…how do we go to native son’s country where we can feel the ocean soothe our old and young bones??…. it so much better to see everything with far more pixels in our vision and attention to detail..
yesterday was my son's prebirthday party .. I will miss him so much...he is learning how to blow out his first bday candles!!

In an unruly, unpredictable and chaotic election year, no group has asserted its presence and demanded to be heard more forcefully than the tea party. The grass-roots movement that was spawned with a rant has gone on to upend the existing political order, reshaping the debate in Washington, defeating a number of prominent lawmakers and elevating a fresh cast of conservative stars.

has anybody realized that this whole movement is only flamed by fox news which loves the controversy and their squeaky wheels!!
why doesnt the media publicize the fabrication of the news and the millions of dollars pumped into the rallies of the Tea/koolaid drinkers of the lunatic nazi skinhead/redneck right wing!!

Sunday, October 24, 2010

Igfxpers’ we've conquered the "smart engine" in this puter! how do americans fight this right wing special interest "smart engine"??

A wonderful morning watching the Sunday news info and propagandas….

(we dont care what Juan says... we love listening to NPR on the radio!!
right wing faux news is scared  of the facts!)

Npr had a maj0r gaff to help folks understand


faux news loves conflict and the demise of the only news station that isnt controlled by the right wing media!!

we dont understand how we are getting fucked over by the general right wing store (metaphor for the smart engine of the right wing think tank that helps the very powerful at the top of this potential oligarchy(general power controlled by a few)...

i was wondering when we would start using metaphors about this runaway vehicle... that Bush/Rove/neoconservatives started..tbis incredible debt was initiated with this million $/a soldier/year war    ....our grandchildren will be paying for the wars that these greedy oil companies/bush family
wanted.. to profit the rich and rupert murdoch(fox news) controlled wall street...

privatize everything and

all the money goes for these repulicon thugs who want to control our retirement and medicare money!!
i could go on and on...

Mommy tooted!!!
The last wonderful hours with my son before im off to oz!!
Colin’s running back and forth in our living area of this o beautiful Ozark condo as the trees are soon to blossom in the peak of autumn!!

Saturday, October 23, 2010

the autumn colors are reaching their maximum
and I can finally reach the cyberuniverse from this temporary from a high point on the foothills of the ozarks!

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master,
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!

hey steve, buddy weve been through a lot...
i want to write more but I need to spend these precious waking hours with my son... this was before when my son was taking a nap..

October 22, 2010, 2:31 AM
I believe that we need some social interaction or at least dealing with family is important…
Keeping a record of our lives is important…and I am passing on everything to colin…
Sadness is knowing eventually you will go…
Everything is brief , but trying to enjoy every moment…
Its hard to deal with the passing of time…and my desire to trust angela and help her understand what is fair…
She’s like a little girl in so many ways that I have to take care of her…
Im getting internet and its like a drug that I need a little bit of perhaps my dwindling social connections as time flies by..
Angela and colin are all I have sometimes and buffy and friends and places that I can call home…

Wow, so the police came by and then I wondered if I should take my keys out of the door…or should I get out and go fr a walk….
And then im happy because I could have smelled like weed…
And then I was thinking that I was happy that I finished the guiness that was in my coffee cup…even though the cup has a lid, would it still be open container??
I think about my connections with dad and then connections with my son…
Its so nice to hold him
So close…
My last week before im off to oz… need to go print it out at the library..
Friday is the last day to really take care of business…
And so many things to do to take care of family…
And then I fear driving a vehicle after this bud and brew..(only 1 but with a little weed with me)
So maybe I should go out and walk…
Every moment with my son is precious…
And everyday is a learning experience…
The way he is learning to take off his shirt…
And I hold him early in the am…
When he wakes up perhaps after a nightmare or
Scared that he is alone…
And I will be apart from my family…
The new costs of flying them here!!
And putting my life altogether on a blog (perhaps word perfect is far better for me to do at least the rough draft while I wait for the internet connections..should I get a pair of my old emergency running shoes or go barefoot)
Now im semi content with our time together
Taking care of the diapers
Scared of the lights coming on in the middle of the night…

U know, Steve, we’ve had a roller coaster couple of mnths.. (forgive the errant o that colin took off and I Caucasian rigged it to be attached but diagonally)
Im listening to
These cool oldies but goldies , I suppose from the 60s and 70s, Nat King Cole and old love songs when we were in our innocent(??) youth…
Im sure weve been both frustrated with what life has given us lately , but that which doesn’t kill us makes us (sometimes) stronger…
Im putting this in the puter on the imperfect word perfect
And Ill transfer it to my blog when she behaves and let me write on her(??)..
I’m glad to see my better half and kinda understand the dynamics..
So Ill do another cut and paste of Rudyard Kipling’s famous poem
It often makes me cry when I read this to my partner and best friend…
Especially when I look into my son’s innocent happy eyes…

As I teach him words of our language..Rudyard Kipling's inspirational poem - 'If'
Rudyard Kipling's (1865-1936) inspirational poem 'If' first appeared in his collection 'Rewards and Fairies' in 1909. The poem 'If' is inspirational, motivational, and a set of rules for 'grown-up' living. Kipling's 'If' contains mottos and maxims for life, and the poem is also a blueprint for personal integrity, behaviour and self-development. 'If' is perhaps even more relevant today than when Kipling wrote it, as an ethos and a personal philosophy. Lines from Kipling's 'If' appear over the player's entrance to Wimbledon's Centre Court - a poignant reflection of the poem's timeless and inspiring quality.
The beauty and elegance of 'If' contrasts starkly with Rudyard Kipling's largely tragic and unhappy life. He was starved of love and attention and sent away by his parents; beaten and abused by his foster mother; and a failure at a public school which sought to develop qualities that were completely alien to Kipling. In later life the deaths of two of his children also affected Kipling deeply.
Rudyard Kipling achieved fame quickly, based initially on his first stories and poems written in India (he returned there after College), and his great popularity with the British public continued despite subsequent critical reaction to some of his more conservative work, and critical opinion in later years that his poetry was superficial and lacking in depth of meaning.

it's cool listening to karen carpenter on this beautiful indian summer..

I did a search for grandparents stealing grandchildren and this is what came up...I have to decide what to do,,, it is a serious situation when my son's grandmother decides she wants to be a full time mommy again having all of her grandchildren in her domain... where she can be the head matriarch,,,
the queen has her son act as a bouncer so Im not permitted to see my son...
my wife complains she feels sick and so she can use that as an excuse to find comfort in the queen's domain...
i guess in so many situations the father has little rights especially in the state of Arkansas!

here is what I found from a search:
"Do grandparents have the right to sue their children for visitation rights with their grandchildren?

Also, if the parents decide they want to move out of state but the grandparents take their child to court to prevent them from leaving and taking the children, what will the court say about this? Will the grandparents be awarded visitation rights? Will a judge hold a family in a state when they want to move just so the grandparents can have visitation rights?"

Answerer 1

It really depends on the state. Some states allow grandparents to sue for visitation if they feel that is in the best interest of the child(ren). However, that visitation is rarely granted. A court will likely dismiss such a claim if the family is simply moving out of the state

my better half decided to take my child to the domain of the ice queen
 she has taken away my son again hopefully only for the evening...
my wife takes my son away promising to bring him back for the evening
and then she decides to keep him in the realm of the granmommy dearest

and then about the other plotters on a world level:....

Charles Koch, whose wealth Forbes magazine calculates at about $21.5 billion, argues in his letter that “prosperity is under attack by the current administration and many of our elected officials.” He repeatedly warns about the “internal assault” and “unrelenting attacks” on freedom and prosperity. A brochure with the invitation underscores that to the Koch network, “freedom” means freedom from taxes and government regulation. Mr. Koch warns of policies that “threaten to erode our economic freedom and transfer vast sums of money to the state.”

The Kochs insist on strict confidentiality surrounding the California meetings, which are entitled “Understanding and Addressing Threats to American Free Enterprise and Prosperity.” The letter advises participants that it is closed to the public, including the news media, and admonishes them not to post updates or information about the meeting on the Web, blogs, social media or traditional media, and to “be mindful of the security and confidentiality of your meeting notes and materials.”

Invited participants are told they must wear nametags for all meeting functions. And, ensuring that no one tries to gain access by posing as a participant, the invitation says that reservations will be handled through Koch Industries’ office in Washington: “Please do not contact the Rancho Las Palmas directly to place a reservation.” ....

My son will be coming into a brave new world when he tries to survive as an adult in this devolving dog eat dog world!

I wonder who could be my best friends among my readers??...
could somebody who used to like me
now hate me enough
to curse me with dying of dementia
and then just call me an idiot as an afterthought??
what is the motivating cause??
love, hate, or jealousy/envy??
speak to me but as politely as ur short fuse might allow??
Maybe when and if I get dementia, I'll have a good view to herbalize over!!
gosh, what a great view!..I forgot how great it was!
"Cannabis 'could stop dementia in its tracks' — Cannabis may help keep Alzheimer's disease at bay. In experiments, a marijuana-based medicine triggered the formation of new brain cells and cut inflammation linked to dementia. The researchers say that using the information to create a pill suitable for people could help prevent or delay the onset of Alzheimer's"

"well this could be my answer to one of my many delightful readers??awesome song!! makes you remember exactly that feeling of not being able to live without someone,o with compelling and beautiful music and that stellar voice! "

Sunday, October 17, 2010

ok.. I suppose that i say to myself in so many ways that I am retarded or maybe even question whether I have the early stages of dementia or
that I have made bad choices in life...
one of my delightful readers threatened me with dying of dementia...
so in which case a little bit of  the stuff, that will be hopefully legal by then will help me deal with my own malady...
it's good that one of my best friends. steve, could see us
and wonder if any counselor could help us...
why is it so difficult for my wife to be happy??

Saturday, October 16, 2010

Im waiting for this video (im not even sure what it is since it's a new program to add videos)... I had a chance to play with my son this morning in the beautiful Fairfield Bay resort area... when Im rich, Id love to have this beautiful view of the bay (even though it's man made).. it will be cool this weekend when my good friend, Steve, is coming to visit!!
Im trying to figure out a plan for our family, where I can still go to Oz and have some assurances that my better half and son will come in December , before all the money runs out..
Ive never had more difficulty having happy days since Ive been married,
Im so happy bonding with my son, but it's a daily challenge of dramas with my honey..
I believe that I have unconditional love for her, so that no matter what she has put me through, I will still love her....
so for the next couple weeks, I have to take care of business so that things will be taken care of..
I am entrusting her again with her parents who hold the umbilical cords to my honey
and who dont want to suffer from empty nest syndrome
and want to have all their grandchildren running around...
I need to write more to you  when Im inspired even when I dont have acess to the internet...
type it on my word saver and then transfer when I get the chance like the little pics and movies of our life...
well, I dont think this will ever be published!! so I guess I'll fix lunch and clean up the condo while watching the corporate controlled media and see what lies Fox (faux news) will shove down the minds of the ignorant!

Friday, October 15, 2010

I can face any of my mutant enemies but how do I keep my wife happy??
I've been doing a frantic search again with to get the best deal on flights outta here...
I worry because, I will never be able to keep my wife happy or without worry...
I keep thinking "happy wife, Happy life" but it seems like a herculean task, especially when staying in the domain of the Ice Queen... two nights with her and she wakes up late (till 10 or more worrying about the future with her weird husband, who is always the weird bloke at the end of the bar!)
it's so good to walk with Charles and get it all off my chest!

Monday, October 11, 2010

I thought about what a wonderful day , we had on Sunday.. I dont want son to inherit this angry world!
I believe it's important that we call hate filled opinion stations for what they are ... as vehicles to inspire hate and violence among Americans...leading to the anarchy of and the lack  of effectiveness of a govt. 
these hate filled stations only dissent when their rich republithugs status arent in power! It has become a scary dangerous country! leading to crazy lunatics taking their anger out on society with senseless violence!!
"Byron Williams, a 45-year-old ex-felon, exploded onto the national stage in the early morning hours of July 18.

According to a police investigation, Williams opened fire on California Highway Patrol officers who had stopped him on an Oakland freeway for driving erratically. For 12 frantic minutes, Williams traded shots with the police, employing three firearms and a small arsenal of ammunition, including armor-piercing rounds fired from a .308-caliber rifle.

When the smoke cleared, Williams surrendered; the ballistic body armor he was wearing had saved his life. Miraculously, only two of the 10 CHP officers involved in the shootout were injured.

In an affidavit, an Oakland police investigator reported that during an interview at the hospital, Williams "stated that his intention was to start a revolution by traveling to San Francisco and killing people of importance at the Tides Foundation and the ACLU."
"Fifteen years after militia-movement-inspired bombers killed 168 people in the Oklahoma City federal building, right-wing domestic terror plots are a fact of life in America. Since 2008, violent extremists -- many of whom subscribe to the hate speech and conspiratorial fantasies of the conservative media -- have murdered churchgoers in Knoxville, police officers in Pittsburgh, and an abortion provider in Wichita.

Conspiracy theory-fueled extremism has long been a reaction to progressive government in the United States. Half a century ago, historian Richard Hofstadter wrote that right-wing thought had come to be dominated by the belief that Communist agents had infiltrated all levels of American government and society. The right, he explained, had identified a "sustained conspiracy, running over more than a generation, and reaching its climax in Roosevelt's New Deal, to undermine free capitalism, to bring the economy under the direction of the federal government, and to pave the way for socialism or communism."

SO I end up forgetting Colin's nappy , when I specifically go back inside the condo for that but then I have the idea of closing the door to the upstairs balcony... so guess what... I have the usual ADD moment...
fortunately, the nice waitress at this little spot has some extra size
its always happens..I think that Im writing some very profound feelings about my son and then its all lost while I try to download a confounded pic... and it' all gone..

I suppose diapers/nappys are one of the top ten biggest issues with my wife and I ...
so dont u think that Im putting the most effort into getting him potty trained so that when my wife comes back and gives me the third degree about why he got the rash, I wont become defensive and worry that she'll never leave him alone to poop again...
so 20/20 hindsight, I should have checked him more often instead of letting him go to sleep when  he was poopy... becaue guess what, he gets a bad rash.. I  put lots of desitin on him but its not enough and too late for the wife not to see it.. oh well... and we get into an arguement and I become defensive and it onlygets worse until I finally get away knowing at least that hell be home when I come back from writing about it on the blog!
Murphy's law...yepo thats me!
of course, i think Im usually unlucky and Murphy's law happens to me ...
 then sometimes I think Im unlucky or just absentminded..
before I finally pried myself away from the TV having a relaxing day bonding with my sone,
we decided to walk to the local internet cafe for a bite...
its so hard to remember everything so I forget the diaper...
and then I go back inside with the intention of getting one ... instead I close the door to the upstairs bedroom door and forget the diapers...
so as usual, as soon as I give the order for food, I realize Colin stinks, and Im without a diaper...
then I think how unlucky I am that 2 days in a row, he doesnt poop until we go for a walk!
but the waitress has extra diapers the exact size that she's been trying to get rid of for weeks!

hey dude!
ok... we are hopefully workin' it out... when he was briefly (2 weekends and a week) taken away from me, it just made me apreciate him more...
and help me realize the lengths I would go to fight (as a peaceful warrior) for our family ...
this little time for a couple of weeks helps me treasure every minute I spend with him while he grows up...
so Im at the cool local convenience store/restaurant cybercafe!
talking to everyone that is out's funny how Ive got more to say when Im in our homey condo that was furnished and almost blessed (or lucky?) with such a good deal!!
we have been blessed in the forces that be want us to be together...
my honey is going to take him to her home with the inlillys, so  I can at least go there to go pick him late this avo, so we can enjoy the beautiful indian summer evenings...
need my honey to go get some beers or I guess I could make my weekly beer run since Im still in dry Van Buren county... amazing how some places in the US are still dry just like before the prohibition...

ok... another day, and I'm realizing how fat and old I'm getting
(can u hold Colin while I swim the race?)
who u lookin' at?
hoping that when I finally get out of here and I'm in the rejuvenating waters of Mermaid Beach, I can lose 5kilos in the first 2 weeks!!... I see the surf club is already having the profiency  tests for our voluneer lifeguards... Maybe I can't look as good as the Jesus lifeguard, but long beautiful hair isnt everything.. especially when it gets in the way when I'm trying to see the buoy in the waves of the Sunday surf/swim race!!

well, things appear to be falling into place cept my builder still hasn't built the storage shed or guttering, and stays at my place working for rent.. I guess that I have to bite the bullet and call him... and see what's up... I think that often I get intimidated by making phone calls just to avoid confrontation or conflictsss... all I wanna do is swim and float in the surf....(could we make that into a song??)

Encouraging Future Hopes
Sagittarius Daily Horoscope

While dreaming of a better future today, you may also notice that you feel hopeful. This is a positive sign that you realize these are not mere flights of fancy but plans in the making. Once you can imagine even a few of the infinite possibilities, you may feel encouraged that they seem more within reach than you might have previously thought. Whether or not you have a vision of each and every step to get you to your goal, you can still feel buoyant as you do your best to steer your course while trusting yourself to the tides of the universe today.

Since we create our lives with our thoughts, our dreams are very important. We can’t tell the universe what support to send if we are unclear of our direction. By using our imagination, we can try different scenarios in our minds to help us discover what makes us light up and feel excited (u know what makes me excited) Our dreams can assist us in making even simple decisions in everyday life, helping us stay on course for fulfillment. For example, being dedicated to all natural foods, you might not stop for fast food. If you know you love animals, you might not take the apartment that doesn’t allow pets. When we know what makes us happy, we can move toward it while we also attract it to us. By dreaming boundless dreams today, you consciously step into the process of building yourself a wondrous future.

I have been having lots of dreams lately in out little condo in the Arky Zone...before we have to move out of our little temporary home sweet temporary home ....

there are so many things to write about, but I am so excited about having a new camera that can take such better pics, but it take so long for this blog machine to put it on!!... I'm always curious about my visitors and what they think of my blog/biograpy
quit taking my picture!..
when they happen across my site... im always a little worried/paranoid that somebody will use it for the wrong purpose, but I believe lately that most of the readers out there are friendly (cept the ones that use voodoo)..... and then i thought what about this world govt that crazy lunatics have thought about and been part of a secret society
perhaps the Stone Masons... i was wanting to watch the show, but my honey gets frustrated when Im interested in one of these shows and dont want to miss out on this infor.. I need to really work hard at keeping her happy , so she'll come to Oz lata...and I wont miss out too much on our wonderful son's evolution into boyhood and then manhood!
look at my cup from Mckinley county schools!
it is so cool to have my hands on the handlebars of this roller coaster ride!!
