      I know your appointment is coming up on the 27th-if I am remembering correctly. I have you on my prayer list and will continually pray that “everything” works out .

      How are you doing?

      • March 22, 2014 at 9:16 pm

        Thanks Cindy. Yes it is the 27th. So many things to finish up. Did the taxes today. Will pack stuff tomorrow. Mon is a physical and blood draw, Tuesday hair, Wed we leave about six pm so I can get to surgical center by 6:30am. O_o. Hope I don’t forget anything. It was a relief to get my pre-certification in the mail today! Thank goodness for no limits or cutting off people with pre-existing conditions. TY Pres. Obama. πŸ™‚
        Thank you every-one for your well-wishes. Teaching Hubby how to post here is also on my list. Maybe is I can get organized early I can dictate into my Mac. Just my luck, get new Mac, have eye problems. But I’m not complaint. πŸ˜‰

          Thank you for the update. I try to go through the posts when I get in but I never get to cover all of them, so I was concerned if I had missed your news. Don’t worry……..prayers have a way of changing circumstances. Just know that there are “prayer warriors” praying for you. Yes, show hubby how to post so that he can give us the good news : ) when everything is over.

          Wishing you nothing less than BLESSINGS for healing.

          {{{{{{{{{CarolMaeWY}}}}}}}} Take this with you : )

          • March 22, 2014 at 9:31 pm

            That means so much to me, thank you Cindy. {{{{{{{Hugs}}}}}} to everyone at TOD who might need them. As the most says “Life Happens”. πŸ™‚

    Finally getting around to watching Hangover III and OMG…in the space of an hour, they’ve murdered a giraffe and a bunch of chickens and whoa….PETA must have had heart attacks.

    One doesn’t want to laugh….one tries very very hard not to laugh, but OMG……this movie will not let the laughter die.

    I’ve never laughed so hard as when I watched Hangover, Death at a Funeral, and Hangover II.

      To quote PBO: “Hangover III, that didn’t work out too well, did it?” I recall Zach very very reluctantly shook his head while slumping even further down into his seat!! Now, that was funny!!! πŸ™‚

      Good evening Mr. Bobfr,

      Happy Saturday evening to you!!!

      Just wanted to say; THANK YOU SO MUCH for the updates. I feel like I am back in college when I come here. I still have a lot to catch up on for today but I wanted to say thank you for your informative truths about Russia and everything that is taking place.

      The media needs you!!! : )

      Indeed, it SHOULD go both ways, but we all know it does not. This is the true meaning of ‘sinful’.

      Hf, these are sick men who are obsessed with their daughters’ sexuality. How about expending their efforts to making sure their daughters have the best education, the broadest opportunities to pursue their talents wherever they lead and the fullest encouragement to become thoughtful and caring human beings. If any poor young woman has an uber controlling father like this, she should find a way to leave home as soon as she can manage it.

    It is going to be fascinating to observe if #TzarVlad even shows his face at the World Forum 2014 Nuclear Security Summit. Certainly won’t be like 2010 …

    Utterly brilliant tweets, they get the message over so perfectly – thank you Ms 6-0 Nerdy!

    As each day passes, I become more and more impressed with Ukraine’s interim government. They are demonstrating exceptional skill, integrity and phenomenal restraint. For instance, they’ve just announced …

    “All Crimeans to remain Ukrainian citizens

    Government Minister Ostap Semerak notes that Ukrainian citizens who are being coerced into obtaining Russian passports will remain citizens of Ukraine.

    Ukraine passportAs announced by Minister of the Cabinet of Ministers, Ostap Semerak, Ukraine continues to recognize Crimeans that are to receive Russian passports as citizens of Ukraine. β€œUkrainian citizens who are being coerced into obtaining Russian passports remain citizens of Ukraine. This contradicts the law of Ukraine because Ukraine does not recognize dual citizenship, but in this instance, with a part of Ukrainian territory having been seized and residents forced into accepting passports of a neighboring country, it will be recognized.””

      This is just so smart, intelligent, and forward thinking. By allowing this those who do not yet see the dynamic for what it is, will have the opportunity to reverse choices later on, and will be spared the bitterness of regret. A new level of peace will unfold in these regions, which has not been known for a very long time. There have been generations of heartache and pain. I pray the worst is behind them.

    People who think that they get to decide for all of society that the point of life is to choose between either becoming super rich greed head or being a cog in an economy as a wage slave so that someone else can become super rich can kiss my ass. They should definitely get a permanent poison ivy rash in their crotch.

    Maybe some of us see chasing too many dollars as a fool’s errand. Why can’t some of us choose not to be materialist and instead choose a modest living so we can use the finite time we have in life hanging out with our kids, keeping the wife properly molested, seeing the Grand Canyon, trying out new recipes, telling horrible jokes and generally claiming our time for our selves?! Why is it that their vision of my freedom is freedom to waste my life in the pursuit of personal material gain? It infuriates me when I encounter some ass trying to foist this Randian sociopathy on me and my fellows!!! I don’t think the world owes me a damn thing. I have never collect a cent of public assistance apart from Pell Grants to go to school. I pay my own way, but chasing more than the middle 5 digit income that keeps my family comfortable is a dumb way to live in my opinion. Let them be a stranger to their kids. Let their neglected trophy wife lust after the damn pool boy who takes care of the pool that they’re never home to use. I am not interested. Fuck them for thinking I should be!

    I apologize for the profanity in my outburst, but I really can’t stand people like the one who just tried to lecture me as if I am some sort of lazy bum. I work 12 hour shifts alternating between 36 and 48 hour work weeks and I take damn good care as a provider for my family.

    I am gonna go listen to the sound of Jerry Garcia’s voice until it restores my serenity now.

      That was MAGNIFICENT. I applaud you.

    • March 22, 2014 at 9:52 pm

      I realized long ago that I didn’t have the genetic makeup to chase after the dollar. Sure, if I become a success as a writer that will be all well and good. But it will be as a result of doing something I love, and out of a need to get my best work out, not because I write for the money.

        March 22, 2014 at 10:48 pm

        Exactly! It’s not that I am opposed to having money. If, after my wife and I move to the coast and open a food truck, we meet with sudden success then so be it. We’ll keep enough to live very comfortably and leave the kids a good head start and then give the rest away.

    Love all the pictures of the Obama women. What a trip they are having. What wonderful memories for all of them. POTUS’s trip next week will also be historic. Can’t wait to follow it here.

    Bobfr, did you know Crimea gets it’s water and other utilities through the Ukraine? It isn’t connected to Russia by land. The Ukraine could pull the plug but they don’t sound like they will. They want all the blame to be heaped where it belongs, “Vavo” or Putin.

    And that piece of filth used “dog” references throughout his scum piece – claiming that First Grandmother “barked” to the hotel staff, and that Sasha and Malia are on their best behavior because she keeps them “on a short leash.”

    Two elderly gentlemen from a retirement center were sitting on a bench under a tree when one turns to the other and says: ‘Slim, I’m 83 years old now and I’m just full of aches and pains. I know you’re about my age. How do you feel?’

    Slim says, ‘I feel just like a newborn baby.’

    ‘Really!? Like a newborn baby!?’

    ‘Yep. No hair, no teeth, and I think I just wet my pants.’

      Ah, a pleasure Allison, when he sobers up and comes to tomorrow, we’ll go after him again. It says all we really need to know about the Daily Mail, hiring a racist piece of scum from the Daily Caller. And a drunken one too.

        The amount of bile and evil that comes from people when they can’t stand having a Black President, Black First Lady, and Black First Family is incredible.

        Thank you for the push back and for calling out that racist scumbag.

        • March 22, 2014 at 10:37 pm

          All thanks to 3Chics, Nerdy – they let me know about the article, when I looked up his background I just laughed – a racist, and a drunken one too. What a lovely combination.

    I can’t believe elephants are still being horribly abused by being forced to perform in circuses—-and live a life of whips and in chains. I thought this horror had been shamefully abolished years ago. And I can’t believe there are still clueless people supporting this cruel, abusive “entertainment”. I wish the elephants could have made a run for it.
