NEW CLEAN CAGE!!   ::MonkeyDance:: Thanks San!

Bluemoon........  the covered bridge has just undergone some needed maintenance. Here's a video report from my local news channel:

http://www2.tricities.com/news/2012/apr/19/covered-bridge-re-opens-time-festival-ar-1855260/


Two of the people I work with live in Elizabethton and I'm very familiar with the bridge. At Halloween, there's always a "haunted walk-through" and the annual festival there is named after the bridge. It is pretty. I like it best in winter I think. At night it has white lights strung across it and there's a wreath hung in the middle. I can't find a picture with the lights, but here's one with the wreath:

CBB, that is a beautiful picture in the snow.  I am glad to hear the bridge has undergone renovations and they are preserving their history.  That area is so beautiful.  We sat in the park that morning and just watched the water trickling over the dam and then walked all over the park and over the bridge.  That was a real challenge for me as I am afraid of water and heights!  We are going back around June and through that area on our way to Shenandoah valley.  I am currently unemployed (company moved out of the state) and am getting back into my genealogy research.  Trying to put together a Family genealogy report for our family reunion so everyone will have a copy but it has become such a job that I don't know whether I will get it done in time or not.

San, I used that same picture as my background at my old job.  It is a very beautiful picture.

I know............ I'm technologically challenged, and way behind the times, but........

I don't know how to Twitter.

I don't understand it. On TV, you see these long lists of posts or tweets or whatever you call them, and the TV host invites you to "join the conversation". I've tried 2 times to "tweet" but I really just want to see the list they are talking about. How do you do that??    ::MonkeyEek::

Blue Moon............ I'm glad you're already planning your newest search for family history!!   ::MonkeyDance::

You always seem to have such a great time and I love that you share your discoveries along the way with us!! I can't wait to see what you have in store for us next!!

If I want to read someone's tweets while I'm at my computer, I just put as where I want to go: https://twitter.com/ plus their twitter addy.

Example: 

https://twitter.com/#!/kctv5 (https://twitter.com/#!/kctv5)

https://twitter.com/#!/JudgeJeanine (https://twitter.com/#!/JudgeJeanine)

Notice the prefix for twitter addy is the same.  After the / you can put in the addy.  See?  And that's why I know how to finish out a twitter address when one of our monkeys posts a tweet and fails to put in the full address.   ::MonkeyWink::  I can see the tweeters name, and all I have to do is add the prefix, url tags and then it's a working, clickable link. 

If that's clear as mud, here is the link for twitter help center:  http://support.twitter.com/

1.  You really do need to get a twitter account.  Just like Myspace and Facebook you have to be a member of Twitter to read Twitter (I think  ::MonkeyCool:: )  

2.  Do what Muffy said, LOL.  


I don't know that much about Twitter either.  I know the basics and that's about it.   ::MonkeyCool::

I have have a twitter account and it is:  https://twitter.com/#!/klaasend (https://twitter.com/#!/klaasend)

It's not a personal one it's an SM one  ::MonkeyCool::

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, Muffy!!  ::MonkeyDance::

OK............ I'm going to have to break down your post. LOL! Seriously, I'm going to have to decipher it like I do exams or government regulations.  I'm so excited............ I feel like you've given me a prized decoding sheet and I can now break into the safe!    ::MonkeyHaHa::

It's late, so I'll give it a try in the morning when my head isn't so cluttered. Coffee and safe cracking in the A.M.!!   ::MonkeyDance::    ::MonkeyKiss::

Klaas.......... OK, if I get to your account, will it show me a list of things people have twitted you like I see on TV when the host says "Join the conversation?"

Will I become a Twit?    ::MonkeyTongue::

I'm sure it's simple once you know how, right? I remember, (to my great embarrassment) the first time I used a computer. I started typing. I typed a line. It appeared that it was near the end of the first line, so I started looking for the "return" key. I looked and looked and just couldn't find it. Did I get up and walk away? Noooooooooooo................. I called my neighbor to ask him where it was.  ::MonkeyNoNo::

I couldn't understand a word he was saying for almost 5 minutes. He was screaming with laughter! He ended up coming over.......... I honestly think he just wanted to see it for himself!   ::MonkeyHaHa:: He has a doctorate in finance and, at the time, had been teaching at the University for years. Computers had been part of his life forever and we're good friends, but he just couldn't pass that one up. He kept showing me stuff about the internet and I wasn't interested.   ::MonkeyHaHa::

Not long after I finally started playing around just a little with "the web" on my nifty dial up modem, I decided to see if I could find a leather skirt for winter. I wanted a mid calf length and couldn't find one locally. OMG..................... I will never forget it! One late night, after everyone was in bed, I clicked a link, and it was a porn site! Not only was it a porn site but it had audio! There was this woman moaning and groaning and breathing in my den!! I tried to "x" it away like my neighbor taught me, but she just kept moaning no matter what I did! He had told me to never shut down the computer manually so I was afraid to just shut it off with the power button and she just kept breathing!! I had NO idea about the volume controls and she was LOUD! I had made the picture go away, but that woman wouldn't shut up! I kept thinking............ nobody can last this long, who's she kidding?! I almost died when my 8 year old came staggering in................... she woke him up!!!

At that point, I pushed the power button! FINALLY, she shut up!   ::MonkeyHaHa::

Hopefully, my adventure into twitter won't be so eventful.  ::MonkeyWink::

Twitter for iPhone, Android updated with better search and discovery features
Jennifer Van
April 26, 2012

Hey Twitter fanatics, your favorite social network for short bursts of information has released updates to its iPhone and Android applications so that you can feed the beast and find out what’s happening even faster.

Twitter for iPhone and Twitter for Android now feature a few fun goodies including more discovery tools, better search, and additional notification options specifically aimed at the power users among us (the rest of you won’t notice the subtle upgrades).

In-app searchers, especially those looking for specific tweeps, will be delighted by the fact that search better distinguishes between people (accounts) and tweets (content) in both the Connect and Discover tabs. Search now also suggests related terms and different spellings. The improvements should make for a simpler, less frustrating search experience on mobile — because as any iTwitterer knows, search was definitely lacking on mobile.

After bullish expectations and an aggressive marketing campaign for an image considered the quintessential expression of modern horror, Sotheby'sNew York sold Edvard Munch's 1895 “The Scream” for $119.9 million on Wednesday night, setting a record for the most expensive artwork sold at auction.

The top spot was previously held by Picasso's 1932 “Nude, Green, Leave and Bust” -- a painting of his much-younger lover Marie-Therese Walter that sold at Christie’s in 2010 for $106.5 million.

The identity of the buyer, who was bidding by phone during the 12-minute auction, has not been confirmed. Bidding started at $40 million, with at least five bidders. Rumors before the sale, not confirmed, focused on interest from the royal family of Qatar.

Munch's "The Scream" achieved another milestone: It now ranks as the most expensive drawing publicly sold. For this version of “The Scream” -- one of four -- is best described as a crayon or pastel drawing, not a painting, on board. The Munch Museum in Oslo owns a pastel as well as a painted version, while the National Gallery of Norway holds the earliest painting, dated 1893.

And it easily beat out the previous auction record for Munch, also held by Sotheby's. In 2008, the auction house sold the 1894 Munch painting "Vampire," a melodramatic image of a red-haired, bare-armed woman kissing a man's neck, for about $38 million.

'Chimp cam' captures funny business at chimpanzee sanctuary
Posted May 4, 2012, Updated May 5, 2012

CLE ELUM, Wash. -- While Disney enjoys the benefits of years of work on a its newly released movie "Chimpanzee," a sanctuary near Cle Elum, Washington, has been quietly making its own movie.

Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest was established nine years ago to take in chimpanzees that were used in the biomedical and entertainment industries.  In 2008, seven chimpanzees that had been used in scientific laboratory tests in Pennsylvania arrived at the specially designed structure East of Cle Elum.

The group said the chimps were abused and are much too strong to ever be allowed to have human contact, so they are kept in a large comfortable home with access to a new two acre outdoor play area.

Recently the group placed two cameras in the compound to see how the chimps would respond. The results are fascinating and humorous.

Canadian-owned I'll Have Another wins Kentucky Derby
Posted: May 5, 2012 6:47 PM ET Last Updated: May 5, 2012 7:40 PM ET


I'll Have Another chased down Bodemeister down the stretch to take the 138th running of the Kentucky Derby on Saturday at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky.

The winning horse in the field of 20 has significant Canadian connections. Mexican jockey Mario Gutierrez raced at Hastings Park in Vancouver for six years, while the horse is owned by Windsor, Ont., native Jr. Paul Reddam.

"I was just kind of numb through the whole race and blink my eyes and it was over," said Reddam. "This team has just been terrific."

An elated Gutierrez, celebrating Cinco de Mayo with a successful first Derby run, gave special thanks to his friends and supporters from Vancouver in the post-race interview.

I think this might be the right place to ask. I finally got with the 21st century and got a smart phone. It's a LG Enlighten. I can do the web pretty well with it ,even can have as many as 8 pages open.
 My problem is when I try to go to Scared Monkeys I can navigate to the forum page but then the page shuts down. I remember from the CA trial days that some where on a phone. Is there a mobile app that I can't find?
 Thanks for reading,Gary.

I wish I could help...but, I have no idea.  Reading this post reminds me though that when I try to sign on via phone I get a screen that says "you are banned for lying to us for the last nine months."  My heart dropped the first time that I saw it...I thought I had been banned and went home and checked...I realized it was an error after I was able to sign in.  Ha!

There are different ban triggers you can use when banning someone from the forum.  You can ban on user name, email address ISP, IP or all of them.  When I want to make absolutely certain someone can't sneak back in (or as certain as I can) I ban them on all including any IP addresses they may have used or tried to use.  

IP's are often shared so this can cause occasional problems.  For instance, if two people live in the same vicinity they might occasionally share the same IP.  AOL users often share IP's.  

That said, there is only one banned member of SM with a comment like that and that person is DOLCE  ::MonkeyHaHa::  .  I know that Labubske isn't DOLCE so I assume at that one moment, when Labubske signed on from her phone, it was a same IP as Dolce once used.  I have now removed some of Dolce's IP triggers and Labubske shouldn't see that message again.   ::MonkeyHaHa::

Those that remember DOLCE will likely agree that the ban comment (for if she tried to log in) was probably too nice  ::MonkeyCool::

Dolce lived in Florida and she was very friendly.  She informed us that she was pregnant and then told us pregnant with twins.  For nine months she lied about being pregnant with twins including posting photos of her babies.  She was a fraud.  She lied to us for 9 months for no real reason.  We don't like being taken  ::MonkeyCool::

She joined right around the time of the Caylee Anthony case and claimed to live near where Adji Desir went missing in Florida.  She was full of lies and only wanted attention.

I always enjoyed reading at THM, and Val's perspective on things in general.

She is in my thoughts and prayers. 

I hope eventually she will be back, writing...somewhere!  I can certainly understand why she needed a break from it all.

                                    HAPPY MOTHERS DAY
To all the Monkeys those who have 4 legged fur babies included.  ::MonkeyAngel::

Beautiful, Happy Mother's Day to you too Green Eyes; and to all monkey momma's!

I agree about the momma's of fur babies too, I told my daughter in law Happy Mother's Day, they don't have children yet but they do have two fur babies that she loves and takes very good care of.  She laughed and thanked me.  I just wanted her to know how much I appreciate all she does for them.

Anyone know why Val shut down the Hinky Meter ? It just went "poof".

NO, I've asked Blink to see if she can find out from Val.  If I had to guess I'd say someone has shut it down, not a voluntary move.  I say that because of how it went down not from any inside knowledge.

Scroll thru the comments.  ValHal posts her reasons why:

Thanks Klaas. 
Yes, there is a post from Val which explains her position.  I feel her pain and pray she finds the right person to help her work through some of the issues.  What a courageous woman she is!

Indeed she is courageous Sister!  I applaud Val for her openness and wish her Godspeed in her journey towards healing.

Having experienced estrangement, hate, indifference and finally reconciliation and some level of acceptance with a parent was most beneficial to me.

Not sure where to put this.  The couple is the grandparents of a friend of mine (this comes from the FB support page for the Straits):  It sounds like they need to get the word out...things aren't happening fast enough in this case.  Sounds like some support for the killer and rapist too.  Anyhow, thought that more support could come from the Monkeys.  Such a sad sad tragedy.

"Not to much to update other than the usual, government officials ignoring questions and this case, any main stream media will ignore if not quickly delete any post in refrence to the Straits case. Nothing more has been done to further progress this case and nobody still wants to answer any questions. I wish I could tell you they have all been captured and will pay but I cant. I, WE need you all to not forget and spread the word of this crime. Its terrible how many people in this world just dont care but then theres you and I...PLEASE POST ABOUT THIS ALL OVER YOUR LOCAL AREA. BOB AND NANCY DESERVE NOTHING LESS! RAPE/BRUTAL ABUSE ON OUR ELDERLY IS NOT OK!!! WHERE THE HELL IS OUR JUSTICE SYSTEM AND MEDIA WILLING TO SPEAK UP FOR THEM!?!? There also is bickering amongst a rally held for the Straits locally which sincerely saddens me and breaks my heart. Any proceeds had already been discussed on where it should go. Sadly they changed their mind about monies under pressure. I do not agree with it but there is nothing I can do but pray the moral just thing is done and for senseless, needless bashing of the Strait family to stop. Their tragedy is not a form of enterainment or topic of social media for you to judge or talk nasty about. Until you have walked a day in that families shoes you have absolutely NO room to talk. Also there is a fb page "Tyrone Woodfork" supporting his actions and black hatred towards whites... when will this ever end??

As you know I have been actively doing genealogy research on my mother's and fathers sides of their family.  This is my greatest achievement so far:

(http://i1261.photobucket.com/albums/ii587/mldbritt/IMG_0020.jpg)  and  (http://i1261.photobucket.com/albums/ii587/mldbritt/IMG_0022.jpg)


This is my GGGG Grandfather and his wife is buried beside him.  Her headstone is chipped piece of rock that (probably him) scratched her name and death date on the stone.  I think she died at 1805 (was born in 1751).

I have searched for this cemetery for over 15 years.  I almost cried today when I saw it.  It is in a "hollow" in Macon Co., TN, way back in the boonies.  I happen to look closely out into the field and there it was off in the distance.  We stopped and asked the old man who lived there if we could drive back there.  He said, Do you live around here?  No, I don't but my parents are both from this area.  Turns out he is a 3rd cousin to me.  He was so nice. We talked and talked.  Me and hubby drove back into the field (had to open an electric fence to get in there) and I just took pictures all around the cemetery.  I found my mothers half-brother there also.  Had to spray me and hubby down with "off" because of the deer ticks being so bad this year.  Also, had to watch where I walked as the copperheads are so thick in this area. My aunt would not come with me because of copperheads!!!!

I am so proud of my GGGG grandfather.  I have his military papers from that time period.  He came back home from fighting in North Carolina and the Tory's had burn his house down and his wife and kids were with neighbors hiding from the Tory's.  What a story to tell us so many years later!!

How wonderful it is you've made your discovery after so much time and effort  ::MonkeyDance::  One thing I was wondering about.  Do you have the GPS coordinates for the cemetery recorded?  That may be very useful in the future. 

You and your hubby were very determined folks to deal with deer ticks and especially the threat of copperheads.  Durned copperheads don't give any warning and they are hard to see.  I'm glad you were able to find the graves of your relatives and get back out unscathed.

After more research...I believe that it is fake.  Looking at the only site that has it posted...it appears that people can type in fake news...who would do that?  Crazy!  I was concerned because I saw it on the news facebook, posted from a reader.  Now it's on Twitter and people everywhere are asking about it.  I really don't think that it is true.  Thanks for looking around though.

After more research...I believe that it is fake.  Looking at the only site that has it posted...it appears that people can type in fake news...who would do that?  Crazy!  I was concerned because I saw it on the news facebook, posted from a reader.  Now it's on Twitter and people everywhere are asking about it.  I really don't think that it is true.  Thanks for looking around though. 

http://robin.williams.mediafetcher.com/news/top_stories/actor_austria.php

Definitely FAKE!  Can't believe I fell for that...ugh...I won't do that again.

about this web site. FAKE...

::MonkeyCheer4:: ::MonkeyCheer4::  Blue Moon!!   ::MonkeyCheer4:: ::MonkeyCheer4::


How wonderful it is you've made your discovery after so much time and effort  ::MonkeyDance::  One thing I was wondering about.  Do you have the GPS coordinates for the cemetery recorded?  That may be very useful in the future. 

You and your hubby were very determined folks to deal with deer ticks and especially the threat of copperheads.  Durned copperheads don't give any warning and they are hard to see.  I'm glad you were able to find the graves of your relatives and get back out unscathed. 





Hi Muffy.  I do have the GPS coordinates for the cemetery and that is how I found exactly where it was.  I googled maps using the coordinates and then I zoomed in.  I could not see the cemetery because it was hidden by trees but it did show me it was out in the middle of cow pasture surrounded by an electric fence.  I knew it was sitting above a creek on a little hillside but had no idea it was back in a field.  We had to stop at the house of the owner to get permission to go back to the cemetery.  Believe me, in an isolated area back in the boonies this is sometimes not a very wise thing to do.  I felt confident enough though that my parents were probably kin to almost anyone in the area and sure enough they were.  My hubby wasn't so confident, he stood back close to his truck and only came up to the house once I yelled at him.  He opened the electric fence and I drove the truck in and it was a little ways up to the cemetery. 

With this info I may apply now for the DAR designation for our family (Daughters of the American Revolution).  I really don't know why it is a Tennessee chapter of Historical Society because he was living and died in Kentucky.  His land is right on the border of Tennessee and Kentucky and originally a chapter of the Kentucky Historical society recognized him and found the grave site.  Back in those days there were disputes on which state that area was in.  I guess even today there is still a dispute about that.

As you know I have been actively doing genealogy research on my mother's and fathers sides of their family.  This is my greatest achievement so far:

(http://i1261.photobucket.com/albums/ii587/mldbritt/IMG_0020.jpg)  and  (http://i1261.photobucket.com/albums/ii587/mldbritt/IMG_0022.jpg)


This is my GGGG Grandfather and his wife is buried beside him.  Her headstone is chipped piece of rock that (probably him) scratched her name and death date on the stone.  I think she died at 1805 (was born in 1751).

I have searched for this cemetery for over 15 years.  I almost cried today when I saw it.  It is in a "hollow" in Macon Co., TN, way back in the boonies.  I happen to look closely out into the field and there it was off in the distance.  We stopped and asked the old man who lived there if we could drive back there.  He said, Do you live around here?  No, I don't but my parents are both from this area.  Turns out he is a 3rd cousin to me.  He was so nice. We talked and talked.  Me and hubby drove back into the field (had to open an electric fence to get in there) and I just took pictures all around the cemetery.  I found my mothers half-brother there also.  Had to spray me and hubby down with "off" because of the deer ticks being so bad this year.  Also, had to watch where I walked as the copperheads are so thick in this area. My aunt would not come with me because of copperheads!!!!

I am so proud of my GGGG grandfather.  I have his military papers from that time period.  He came back home from fighting in North Carolina and the Tory's had burn his house down and his wife and kids were with neighbors hiding from the Tory's.  What a story to tell us so many years later!!




Great work!

Sneezing monkey highlights new species list

Thomas Geissmann / Fauna & Flora International
A previously unknown type of snub-nosed monkey, discovered in northern Myanmar and dubbed Rhinopithecus strykeri, has a nose so upturned that the animals sneeze when it rains. To avoid inhaling water, they sit with their heads tucked between their knees on drizzly days, local hunters say. The species is shown here in a Photoshop reconstruction based on a Yunnan snub-nosed monkey and a carcass of the newly discovered species.

No, he was born in Culpeper Co., VA and must have moved with his family to Chatham Co., NC at least by 1770.  I don't think he spent much time in Virginia.  I have GenealogyBank but haven't had much luck in finding a lot of the families in those newspaper.  It appears after his service in N.C. he moved his family to the land he is buried on and lived and died there.

I found my gggg grandfather's Revolutionary (pension) papers, on Heritage Quest, through my library, free on-line with a Library card.

I have not been able to log-on to HQ, recently, may be the computer cookie thing.

Glad I was able to help Seahorse.  Try it as you go to different websites and practice.  You can do that with most.  It's obvious when you can't do it because you won't see the VIEW IMAGE INFO choice. 

Sometimes the verbiage used is different in different browsers though so that could be confusing.  The instructions I gave work with Firefox and some other browsers.  In Internet Explorer you click on PROPERTIES instead of VIEW IMAGE INFO and you will find the URL that ends with the .JPG there.   ::MonkeyCool::

Hello fellow monkeys. Hubby and I have a problem that has kept growing and I'm wondering if anyone here can direct me to a good background check source and/or any advice as to what we could do that we haven't thought of yet. We've moved recently and in between some scary people. A strange couple behind us and a weird guy in front of us, I'll call Frito for the sake of keeping all this from getting confused. We don't know the couple's name. We feel pretty sure they're all drug dealers. If they're not it would be a surprise. And they're the angry type, well the couple is. Frito is the quiet type but did something one day that showed he has some kind of temper! I've been trying to find out more about these neighbors but I'm not finding a lot. If anyone knows a good source for this I'd really appreciate it. We know Frito's full name thanks to another neighbor, but have hit a wall trying to find out the names of the couple. I tried using the state's department of corrections site to find out more about Frito, but I don't think it works correctly. I know this because I typed in someone's name my husband and I know is incarcerated and will be for some time and it's not showing a thing about him. I tried our county's website for any info on Frito and I did find something. I found an incident report about a woman who used to live in this neighborhood. She called the police to report something stolen and that she was sure Frito was the culprit. It's still an ongoing case. No arrests nor has her items been found. This happened last year.

When I started digging into our local newspaper archives I found that Frito was arrested for prescription fraud a few years ago.

I'm willing to fork out some money for a background report but I would rather spend it knowing they'll find out more than I have but I have no idea which service that would be. There's so many to choose from and I'd rather not spend a lot. I would be willing if I knew they would find out all there is to know, you know? We're saving up for a hand gun and for the first time in our marriage I'm agreeing with my husband that a gun in our home may be a wise idea. I want a tazer for myself. I've signed up for a self defense class. Some of this hasn't been so costly. The self defense class is free. But wow, home security can be costly! We've already spent some serious money on bolt locks, sensor lights, etc... This has all progressed since we've moved in...they do something weird or scary or both, and we add to our security. So now we're at the camera and gun stage. For the past 5 weeks or so, it's something odd just about every single day with these people! It's been trouble with them since the 2nd day we've moved here. The 2nd night we were here the sound of loud mufflers kept waking us up. We got up around 3am to find a truck pulling up to their place, (the couple next door), never even turned off the engine, he came out of the house to the truck, gave the guy in the truck something, and the truck left. It was like that for another hour or so. But that action slowed down once hubby put up sensor lights over there and a dummy camera. Since then, light activity of the same drive thru stuff goes on during the day at Frito's house in front of us. These two neighbors visit each other off and on every single day through out the day and nights. Thick as thieves! Once in a blue moon Frito visits their house. He always drives over, never walks there. It's quite a distance. but the couple are constantly walking over to Frito's or once in a while they'll drive over...every single day.

We're afraid to leave the house empty. We have to work around things so that someone is always home. One time one of us hid in the car while we drove off so it appeared that one of us didn't leave the house. We forgot about it and when we got back and Frito saw all of us coming home (he watched us leave also, he watches everything!) and he had this look on his face...like he was angry! First he had this look of surprise and then just this fuming look on his face! I don't know if he thought we were doing it for the reason we were or what, but it was just weird. Why look angry at us? For all he knew maybe he just didn't see everyone or we were picking someone up. He has no idea we know a bit about his background at all. Oh the crap that has been happening since we got here! It's just been something with them every day. None of them work and are such homebodies...and every day is a saturday for them. They're in their forties/fifties but act like teenaged delinquents. They're never indoors. Hardly ever indoors. The couple practically live on their porch and Frito practically lives in his shed. Always on the look out and ready for people who pull up to them and these people never stay...always leave shortly after they arrive.

Hubby is looking into some cameras to install with FTTP services that aren't too costly for our budget. Can anyone suggest a really good one that isn't too pricey? We know nothing about this stuff. We don't need all the bells and whistles. Something that will record for us just in case we need evidence would be great. Indoor and outdoor.

I looked into what we could do with help from the police but unless we have some proof nothing can really be done. That's what a friend that's also a cop told us. However, they are patrolling our streets more and have been really great about that. It has been a bit better since that began just this past week. There's less sneaking around late at nights. No more drive thru services like there was. A few people have pulled up at Frito's but they leave awful fast. No more sneaking around in the woods next to us in the dark. No more rock throwing at our house from a distance! They've been doing some seriously stupid crap but it's been a bit better since the police patrols started. I'm hoping they'll do something stupid and maybe patrol will see some of what we see.

For a while the husband of the couple next door was parking his vehicle anywhere but at his house. He quit doing that when patrol started but I wonder how long it will last. It was weird and went on every day for weeks. He'd either park it at Frito's house or a nearby business and walk home leaving it there. Hubby asked him if he's leaving his truck there because Frito may be working on it for him. He said no. And he just kept parking it there and would walk home which is quite a distance. Even in the pouring rain. (Frito wasn't using it. He's got his own very nice expensive vehicle and how he got that vehicle since he doesn't work, no one knows! We asked.) There's nothing wrong with this guy's truck. It would just sit there for days at a time mostly. He'd walk over to visit Frito and back home, many times in one day...short little visits. Sometimes he'd walk to his truck parked at the business and drive to visit Frito, drive it back to the business lot, park it there and walk back home! Just to visit Frito for five minutes!! They go in Frito's shed to visit always, never in the house. He hardly goes anywhere in his truck, but once in a blue moon he'll go somewhere but bring it right back to anywhere but his place and park it, as if he's hiding it. At the business he parks it at sometimes, he doesn't work there (he has no job either). When he was leaving it there it was always at nights or when the business wasn't open during the day or on weekends. We're guessing because Frito maybe needed more parking space for company because whenever his company would leave, that guy would bring his truck right back, park it at Frito's, and walk back to his home. We've wondered if maybe he's hiding it or perhaps using it as a drop off or pick up point for drugs. When patrol started he took his truck home and parked it in his own driveway for one day. Since that day it's been gone...for two or three days now. It's as if no one is home but they could be just laying low. The timing is wild. I was hoping patrol would see him walking around like that and ask him what the heck he's doing? Especially at 2 and 3 in the morning... and this would go on all week, every single danged day. Foot traffic or cars all hours of the day and night. Back and forth. One day we were doing a lot of yard work and we saw the guy walk back and forth to Frito's and his own home 7 or 8 times just during the day. He came in his truck parked at the business down the road once, and put it right back. Later that night we were sitting on our porch and saw him come and go three times at night.

We've seen a lot of weird stuff between these two neighbors over the past 5 weeks or so. You'd think a drug dealer would chill out if they thought the people around them were on to them, but they instead get angry and do stuff that confirms suspicions that they're doing something illegal. They throw rocks at our house from a distance. Anytime we go out on that side of our yard near them they sick their dogs on us or start slamming things around cussing really loud. One day I thought the woman was going to break her broom sweeping her porch like mad while we were so close to them and she was fuming cuss words about nosy f'in neighbors... and all we were doing was mowing our yard. A car pulled up one time and decided to turn around in their drive way and oh my gosh I thought they were going to go nuts over it. After the car left it was "Who was that? What the f were they up to?!" And it was just some guy turning around in their driveway. These people are obviously doing something illegal and are crazy idiots.

Would appreciate any advice or if anyone can point me to some background services that actually find everything a concerned neighbor would like to know.

I think it would be a comfort just to talk to someone who has dealt with this. I'm glad it's quieter now due to the police patrols, but they're trying to find ways to work around it, as usual. Relentless idiots! Hubby is dealing with it pretty well but it's getting old to me. I hope to goodness the patrols make them want to move...but Frito won't go anywhere. He's got it made where he is and he's not leaving it.

Thanks for any help,
Nora

Nora, forget the dummy camera.  You need something that will collect real evidence.  Two options are available.

1.  Go to a Bass Pro Shop or order online a couple of wildlife cams.  Get the ones that record video.  They are motion activated and are quiet and use night vision technology.  Most are camouflage so maybe you could tie them up in some trees where they wouldn't be seen.  You want to put them where you know they can record whatever is going on.  A single quality camera will run up to $180.  You might find them cheaper online.

2.  A surveillance kit can be purchased that will allow you to watch every room of your home while you are away.  Hubby has installed these before with the average price being $1000 for a 3000 sq ft home.  Some home owners insurance will give you a percentage discount just like they do with a security system.  Great thing about this is that you can check from your smart phone as well as any online computer no matter where you are.  And backing it up to a hard drive provides evidence should you have a break-in or any other trouble.  I know it is expensive, but maybe if you search online you can find a used kit for sale.

Hope this helps a little.  Of course, you could give them a little something to worry about.  You and hubby could start doing your own 'crazy' stuff and have them wondering if you're about to go postal on the neighborhood.  Dress in monkey suits and sit by the street throwing bananas at passerbys.  lol

MIA Vietnam Soldier Laid To Rest 36 Years After Disappearance

 ::snipping2::

Every Memorial Day, I take out a scrapbook my grandmother made over 40 years ago. Each page is filled with headshots of young men with stiff Air Force hats clamped to their heads, their newly-buzzed hair just visible above formal collars. Some gaze at the camera confidently, their broad shoulders filling the frame, while others appear too young for the uniforms buttoned around their necks. Under every face is the exhortation: WHERE IS HE? My uncle's face is on page three.

Thanks for the advice KittyMom. Hubby thought the dressing like monkeys and throwing bananas was funny. We are making our presence known outdoors more than usual. We've been working on flower beds, sitting out on the porch, etc... They finally stopped cussing loudly after a few days of it.

I'm definitely saving up for the video cam you mentioned. It will take me a while to buy something like that but I think it would be worth it. I don't think a camera taking stil pics would quite capture the throwing of rocks and other things like video could. Thanks for the ideas. We asked the electric company to come out and put up a safety light for us for one particular dark corner in the front yard and maybe will light up the woods some too. They're putting that up next week and the electrician gave hubby some other great ideas for installing lights on the house we hadn't thought of that will cost us less. I think if we just had more light I could capture the rock throwing etc with my hand held digital camera, but I just need more light. That stuff always happens at night or from a distance that we can't see cause there's a hill in the way or something like that. It may stop altogether once the light goes up which would be wonderful. A friend in LE told us that if there's more than one of them throwing those rocks and other things at us, which often it is both of them (the couple), that they could be considered a gang and the laws would hit them harder... if they're ever caught of course.

A friend of the family is helping hubby set up an indoor surveillance so that we can view the place while we're away and record it on a server for us too. It will be a while but it's on its way and already offers some relief. It won't be anything fancy but I told them I don't care, as long as it works. We're looking into how to protect our windows while we're all away from the house, just in case someone tries to break in. I'd rather them not get in at all but in case they do, that indoor surveillance is a great idea.

It just blows my mind that this kind of thing goes on with a head start program right down the road from us. And there are kids all over the neighborhood that ride their bikes. I plan on mentioning that when we meet with our patrol officer. It seems to me someone should know this has been going on and continues to near a headstart program.

Thanks!

I've moved two of your three posts on Ayla Reynolds to her thread, but I'm leaving this one.  It's okay to post an update or announcement in Musings, but it's also important for updates to be posted  in their respective Missing Person's thread, since some might not read at Musings. If it's important, you could even post one here and one in her thread.  But for the most part, folks are going to check the Missing Person's Thread for updates.  I surely hope there will be some news of an arrest in Ayla's case soon. ::bee::

Everyday it seems to get worse as details come out.  RCMP have still not indicated they know who the victim is.  I want to know how he managed to ship body parts without the postal service noticing the blood dripping or smell of decomp.

I was a little surprised at the outcome of the John Edward's trial too, but more than anything, he's guilty of being a jerk. Through the public trial, we all learned just how much of a jerk he is, and in many ways he'll serve under that sentence for life. The stuff that has come to light will follow him for the rest of his life, IMO.

Did anybody watch the "Hatfield and McCoys" 3 night mini series on The History Channel? I had to record it and catch it when I could, but Kevin Costner did a great job in it and I learned a lot! I always thought the feud was more legendary and folklore than anything else and probably blown all out of proportion, but I was wrong! Some of the basis for the feud went to the US Supreme court! The full episodes are watchable on the History Channel's website, and I'd recommend it to anybody with any interest at all. It was a great cast too and very well documented.

I watched all 3 nights.  I have to admit it was a very good mini series.  Did you know it was filmed in Romania?  I have to say those mountains are NOT the Appalachian mountains.  I thought it was filmed out west but read up on it and it was filmed out of the U.S.

I have read up a lot on the Hatfields and McCoys and the show changed some stuff:  like, Roseanna, she lived at the hatfields for a while and then her mother sent her sisters to bring her home.  She contracted measles while living in her parents home and miscarried her baby, not giving birth at her aunt's house and the baby dieing a year later.  Johnsie and her was more a sexual thing, not Romero and Juliet.  She was more than 5 years older than Johnsie (he was 18, she was 23).  He was not smitten with her except in a sexual way and she supposedly had Gonorrhea from all her "encounters" with the local boys and may explain why she became so ill and died at an early age.  So they romanticized it a lot when it came to Roseanna and Johnsie.  The pictures of them leave a lot to be desired, not very pretty or handsome in my book. But, all-in-all, it was a good mini-series and most everyone I know here in Kentucky watched it and had good comments on it.  I think Kevin Costner was really good and Bill Paxton was good also.

I watched all 3 episodes. It was very well made and I learned a lot! It also prompted me to do a little more research on the feud and the geography of the Kentucky - West Virginia border. While I wouldn't say it was another documentary on a par with Ken Burn's "Baseball", it was a great "docudrama" and perfect for The History Channel.

Really was worth watching, have never liked Kevin Costner but have to say he did a good job on this one.   Watching it on the puter made for a long evening but it was commerical free.

I was just telling my ten year old on the way to school that today starts hurricane season.  I love storms!  I am also praying for safety for all in the "danger zone."

I was a little surprised at the outcome of the John Edward's trial too, but more than anything, he's guilty of being a jerk. Through the public trial, we all learned just how much of a jerk he is, and in many ways he'll serve under that sentence for life. The stuff that has come to light will follow him for the rest of his life, IMO.

Did anybody watch the "Hatfield and McCoys" 3 night mini series on The History Channel? I had to record it and catch it when I could, but Kevin Costner did a great job in it and I learned a lot! I always thought the feud was more legendary and folklore than anything else and probably blown all out of proportion, but I was wrong! Some of the basis for the feud went to the US Supreme court! The full episodes are watchable on the History Channel's website, and I'd recommend it to anybody with any interest at all. It was a great cast too and very well documented.
Thanks CBB, I'd noticed it being advertised and had planned on watching...Will be easier to watch on puter as hubby takes up occupancy in the evenings of the big screen TV and I always fall asleep if I try watching in the bedroom.
I watched all 3 episodes. It was very well made and I learned a lot! It also prompted me to do a little more research on the feud and the geography of the Kentucky - West Virginia border. While I wouldn't say it was another documentary on a par with Ken Burn's "Baseball", it was a great "docudrama" and perfect for The History Channel.

 ::CowboySmiley::

Ohhhhh.............. I LOVED Ken Burn's "Baseball"! You didn't have to be a sport's fan to appreciate it. It was almost a reflection of America itself. Did you ever watch his Civil War series? It was unbelievably great! If they taught history in school like that, the SAT scores would skyrocket and we'd have a lot of kids turned on by school instead of turned off. JMO.

Thanks for the additional information, Blue Moon! I had briefly looked up a few things as I watched and knew that Johnsie and Roseanne weren't exactly as portrayed, but didn't know the details you provided. I agree with you, BTW. Those aren't our mountains. I kept looking for the lush green scenery and it just wasn't there. I remember when I first saw "The Last of the Mohicans", I knew immediately upon the first scenes that it had been filmed close by. Sure enough, the location was Western North Carolina and the Appalachains. I'm biased, but I think the beauty of what we have is really unique. Lots of people are surprised to learn that our climate is officially "Humid Sub Tropical". It doesn't sound like that climate should include the oldest Mountain Range in the country and winter snow, but it makes the mountains so incredibly lush green and vibrant in summer.

Yes!!! -- anything by Ken Burns is fantastic!! I agree, schools would do well to re-think how history is taught. I really enjoy a good "docudrama" to be both entertaining yet educational at the same time!  ::rhino::

I watched all 3 nights.  I have to admit it was a very good mini series.  Did you know it was filmed in Romania?  I have to say those mountains are NOT the Appalachian mountains.  I thought it was filmed out west but read up on it and it was filmed out of the U.S.

I have read up a lot on the Hatfields and McCoys and the show changed some stuff:  like, Roseanna, she lived at the hatfields for a while and then her mother sent her sisters to bring her home.  She contracted measles while living in her parents home and miscarried her baby, not giving birth at her aunt's house and the baby dieing a year later.  Johnsie and her was more a sexual thing, not Romero and Juliet.  She was more than 5 years older than Johnsie (he was 18, she was 23).  He was not smitten with her except in a sexual way and she supposedly had Gonorrhea from all her "encounters" with the local boys and may explain why she became so ill and died at an early age.  So they romanticized it a lot when it came to Roseanna and Johnsie.  The pictures of them leave a lot to be desired, not very pretty or handsome in my book. But, all-in-all, it was a good mini-series and most everyone I know here in Kentucky watched it and had good comments on it.  I think Kevin Costner was really good and Bill Paxton was good also. 

CBB, I have GenealogyBank.com which has newspapers from all the U.S. that dates back to the 1700's.  I did a search on the Hatfields and the the McCoys and read some of the newspaper articles dating in the 1880-s up to 1920's when Anse Hatfield died.  These articles are all over the place.  Their accounts of what happened differ from newspapers in the North, newspapers in the South, whether the newspaper was West Virginia or whether it was Kentucky.  Devil Anse even did vadilvil act in the early 1900's before he died sometime around 1920.  The only thing they agree on in any of the accounts is how violent that period in history was for both families.  So I really don't know if anyone really knows what happened.

I agree, GE. The fundamental "rights and wrongs" are giving way to blaming others, entitlement, and "my way by any means." It's so very sad and the tragedies just keep coming and coming. Somehow children seem to be targets. Maybe it's because those with dark hearts can't handle the innocence of a child. It's heartbreaking.

I agree with you all.  We have a society that is based on relativism -- no right or wrong.  We also have lost the smallest component of a civilization, the family unit.  Children are being raised by the government, in which everything is relative, instead of 2 parents

1940 New York Census records are now searchable by name
June 6, 2012


NEW YORK (AP) – Americans are in for a cyber-surprise on Wednesday: They'll be able to plug family names into an online 1940 U.S. Census and come up with details about the lives of New Yorkers— from Joe DiMaggio and Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy to their own relatives.
Starting after midnight, it will no longer be essential to provide exact addresses from seven decades ago to look for a New York connection.

With names, free searches of the 1940 U.S. Census first made public in April will unlock personal information about residents of New York — then the largest U.S. state and an immigrant hub from which people moved all over the country.
ensus experts say the New York data is of national interest because tens of millions of Americans have roots in this gateway to the United States through Ellis Island, and many can now dig for more personal information.

"That's the exciting aspect about this — the ability to search the lifetime of our mothers and fathers," said Debra Braverman, a New York-based independent forensic genealogist with clients seeking information for trust funds and estates.

When the Census was first released, "if you didn't know exactly where someone lived in 1940, you couldn't find them," Braverman said.

Indexing by name is crucial to cracking the until-now closed book of that year's Census, which by law could not be released for 72 years and is therefore the most recently available one.

This U.S. Census leads to China.

Some of the work of transcribing handwritten Census records into a computerized index was done by workers in an office outside the southern city of Dongguan with "very strong character recognition abilities," said Todd Jensen, who heads the document preservation service at Ancestry.com, a Provo, Utah-based family history company that's releasing the online New York Census for 1940 using their new name index.

"Given the complexity of their own language, reading and recognizing characters from other languages comes easier," he said.

Also Wednesday, another historic treasure trove appears on the Internet for the first time: Census information compiled separately by New York state for 1915 and 1925, indexed by name. These records include details about famed personalities such as Lauren Bacall, Al Capone, Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Houdini, who according to the 1925 Census was born in the United States, even though most biographies say he was born in Hungary.

The interest in roots is so intense that 37 million hits temporarily crashed the National Archives provider site when the 1940 Census was released on April 2. Many who logged on hoping for results hit the wall, frustrated for lack of specific locations required for results.
 ::snipping2::
The New York world of the 1940 Census includes names that later became famous, including Katharine Hepburn, John D. Rockefeller Jr., J.D. Salinger, Kennedy and Ella Fitzgerald.

The 1940 Census by name index will be available for all states possibly as early as this fall.

While New York is the biggest state whose Census records are already name-indexed, a number of smaller states also have been made name-accessible by Ancestry.com and two other companies, FamilySearch.org and MyHeritage.com.

New York state censuses for 1915 and 1925 are available online for the first time via a link that says "find family history for free" to anyone providing a New York ZIP code and email address.

The state censuses show "every New Yorker from the famous to the infamous to everybody in between," said Kathleen Roe, director of archives and records management at the New York State Archives.

The censuses released this week offer "one of the greatest collections of historic voices you'll ever find," said Roe, adding that if read together, they trace whole families as they move around.

The Census data also include such information as occupation, whether immigrants were naturalized citizens, and whether they owned or rented their homes — in other words, sketches of communities, said David M. Kleiman, president of Heritage Muse Inc., a New York-based genealogy technology firm.

Donald Trump is wrong to sue former Miss Pennsylvania
Jenice Armstrong
Philadelphia Daily News


 ::snipping2::
Uh-oh. There's trouble in beauty-pageant land.


Not only has the former title-holder for Miss Pennsylvania USA, Sheena Monnin, turned in her rhinestone tiara, saying the just-completed Miss USA pageant was rigged, calling it "fraudulent" and "trashy," but her first runner-up won't take over for her.


Valerie Compeggie, 26, of Pittsburgh, has — gasp — declined to do what first runner-ups are traditionally expected to do: complete what's left of the winner's reign. Not out of solidarity with Monnin, of course, or because of some moral qualms. Nope, she took a pass because doing so would disqualify her from ever competing for the title of Miss USA.

Good morning Monkey's,

Cookie,

I will always be grateful to you for your idea, frozen water in the plastic bags; you saw it on the weather channel. I needed and used your suggestion twice, the first time the power did not go out and I passed the frozen water bags to another, whose power did go out at that time. The frozen bag technique came handy on another storm, I use it after when the electricity went off for a week because of another storm.  I was told it was a good idea, I mentioned you gave me it :) Thank-you, again.


Yes, I know the State I am waiting for is not searchable, at this time. Boo.

Heritage Quest Online is available on line through the local Libary, I don't know the status of the 1940 census, I would think they are still indexing it.

Seahorse  I am glad I caught the info on the Weather Channel and was able to pass it on. Really happy to hear it worked.  For the Census I have done the page by page thing.  ::MonkeyEek:: Which for small towns wasn't to bad. But then when I got into the more populated areas I tried but went crossed eyed. ::MonkeyHaHa:: So will wait for the states to be indexed.  ::MonkeyHaHa::

 ::MonkeyHaHa:: Good idea!

I was actually thinking, I should bag up water in recycled plastic bags, and put them in the freezer, (in case) of another Spring storm, like, last year's.
 
I (believe) I used Aldi's 7in x 73/4 inc bags, they worked out well with the double strip on top of the bag. I was asked the person that I gave the frozen bags to, if I wanted the water bags, back, to refreeze, I said, yes, but I was vetoed down, so I just accepted the empty bags, back.

Thank-you for watching the W.C. :)

Hi again, Monkey's,

Cookie,

I just read another idea; it is not new, but new to me, to freeze water bottles or empty drinking plastic bottles with water, in your freezer. 

I have the empty plastic bottles you an redeem for 5 cents at Wall mart. However, for the other bottles that cannot be redeemed, (or, redeemed, in another state), I may just keep those on the side too, just in case, to pop in the freezer or even freeze them now.

Your tip was good  to leave about a couple inches of space, from the top of the plastic water bags, before freezing; I would like the same stands for plastic water bottles, in the freezer.

I probably have people on the net, panicky for a storm :)

Seahorse  That sounds like a good idea. I would think the same would hold true for the bottles too. There has to be air flow in the freezer compartment.  Just heard we are in for some bad storms the next couple days. Hope you don't have any bad weather. ::MonkeyWink::

The storm got here about 9:30. Not sure which way it came from. Went to the store about 8 and when I was on the way home there was lightening  east, west, north and south.  It was really an odd feeling having it all around me driving down the highway.  ::MonkeyWink::

It was awesome Seahorse. I love storms. Most of the lightning was cloud to cloud with it dancing across the sky every which way. With a few to the ground. Wish I would have had one of my grand kids with me so they could have taken pictures while we were driving.

Hey, everyone. I hope everyone is doing great!

It's been a long time since I posted on this board. Been extra busy for a few months, and continue to be, just came to check this old hangout.

One thing that surprised me is that it's getting harder to find the website. I checked Google for Scared Monkeys, and went to the .com, which is more of a news outlet, now.  Not sure if it always was, but just noticed.

I then found the chat button, way down the page, which directed me to the .net site. Since I had erased all my bookmarks, I had to find the topic manually, and it was hard.

I noticed Scared Monkeys is now on Facebook. I hope this website is not replaced by Facebook, since this is more organized, and there is lots of archived information.

Anyway, just jotting my thoughts, no controversy intended.

I read your posts, when I can, even if I'm not posting.

Hi Itaryl - good to see you!

Scared Monkeys has always been the same with the .com and .net.  Actually, the .com came long before the .net.

NO, there is no plan to shut down the forum and take discussions to Facebook.  FB is way too limiting.  ::MonkeyCool::

I hope all Florida monkey's are safe and keeping an eye on the weather.  I just heard they have declared a state of emergency, I guess it was because of the large amounts of rain they are receiving.

We are having our August heat-wave in June.  This is what our weather forecast is for the next few days:
(http://i1261.photobucket.com/albums/ii587/mldbritt/Untitled.jpg)


We need rain very bad but a high pressure system is going to block any rain from the storm.  The only thing we are watering right now is the tomatoes and my mums and flower beds.  If this keeps up for very long they will stop us from watering anything.

Florida is excepted to get another 15 inches of rain by tomorrow on top of the 15 inches they have already gotten. The top of the state up around Panama City over to Tallahassee and the Central part of the state seem to be getting hit the hardest.  Prayers every one is safe.

We hit 103 here today in North Texas 106 tomorrow. I guess summer is here.

Is there a place here on SM that I can ask a legal question (Estate) and see if anyone has an answer?  I respect the opinions of my fellow monkeys and I know that I would receive excellent feedback. Thanks in advance.

Right here would probably be as good a place as any.  I have some experience with Estates myself.

Oh good...thanks!  I'm just going to copy and paste what I had previously typed out in my email (I am kind of upset tonight because I found out that he borrowed 88,000 against the house and still hasn't given me anything else).

My mother passed away in November of lung cancer. She became ill in May 2010. It traveled to her brain in April 2011. I am adopted and my brother is biological, I am older. I live out of state (since age 18). My brother has always lived with her (he is 30). My Mom bought a house with cash (2007-from her Mom's property-157,000). She has said that she was going to split money between my brother and I, but decided instead to invest it into a home. The intentions were either my brother would buy my portion of the house out once he improved his credit or they would help me to pay my bills over the years. My brother states that Mom didn't have to pay anything during the four years they lived in the house together, but her checkbook says different. I see in some months where Mom gave him 600-700 dollars. In April 2011, my brother talked Mom into signing the house over to him (Warranty Deed) and her truck. Now, this is the same week that the doctor found cancer in her brain. I am not sure if she was on any medication at this time. My brother did not tell me until the week before she died. So I could not ask her about it. He said they did that in case she had to go into a nursing home. When Mom was placed on hospice, I left my job out of state and took care of her the last five weeks, so that they could work and I could spend time with her. The life insurance was initially to be split between us, but my brother signed his over to me a few weeks before she passed. This equaled 38,000. He also gave me the truck 5,000. He also said that he would take a loan out for 10,000 to make it a little bit more fair (he did not give me this and has no intentions of this). Even though I knew that it wasn't fair, I agreed to it. That was until he didn't stick to his end of it. I disagreed with all of this, but just wanted to keep the peace and be there for Mom. There is no written agreement anywhere for the 10,000 (he also said that he would only get that amount because he would have to pay it back times three). When I confronted him about this, he said that there was a will that left me even less than I received. But nothing has been filed that I am aware of. She also had a retirement account that I never saw or asked about. Mom's intentions were for us to equally split everything, she has said this for years. They (my brother and his wife, as of July 2011) say that I am not entitled to as much because I wasn't around. I was around just not in state. She kept saying she just wanted everything to be fair (prior to passing). I feel that my brother took advantage of her. I want to see if I have a case. As a single mom I do not want to waste the money that I do have on attorney fees if I have little chance of "winning." Also, if there is a will wouldn't they need to file it? I don't think that is fair to hide it and use it to their advantage if I retain an attorney. I need to mention also that he is saying that debt collectors are coming after him for her debt (30,000) (I told him that I would gladly help pay anything, he says no-personally I don't believe he is paying). Thanks in advance.

#1  What state did your mom live in? 
#2  So he is saying that she signed over the entire home to him?  That sounds like alot of BS to me too. 
#3  It might be worth it to find a good family law attorney, bite the bullet and pay the $300 an hour or whatever he would charge for a consultation.  He could probably tell you if it's worth your while to pursue it.

What state you lived in has nothing to do with how much you deserve.  Your mothers wishes are everything but I know people when they are ill can sign things they don't fully understand.

I had a situation where a family member had my mother make some changes to her trust when she was in no position to.  Most of it we couldn't do a thing about.  This person made himself the executor of the remaining trusts.  As it turns out, he was paying himself as trustee way more than he was allowed.  One of my sisters and I went to a family law attorney and he sent a letter and this person agreed to step down as executor and pay back the trust $80k.  It was either that or we would take him to court which could result in criminal charges.

So it can be done but it's not pretty and not cheap.  It was worth it in our case but each case is different.  If you are talking about $10k, probably not worth it.  But if there is a possibility of 1/2 of the value of the home and life insurance, then maybe worth it. 

Different laws in different states.  Cost of attorneys vary as well. 

So bottom line is this, if you are wanting to get the 10k out of your brother I doubt you'll get it unless voluntarily from him.  If it's more then you probably should at least ask an attorney what he thinks.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

Thank you for taking the time to offer feedback.  It really does help to hear someone else's take on it.  Mom lived in Oklahoma.  I never wanted half...I know that he was up there with Mom (even though SHE took care of HIM).  He did the little things like change her oil...pick her up from somewhere...and so on...I just wanted him to follow through with what he said.  A part of me wants to go for half now...but, another part of me says KARMA will give him exactly what he gave plus some.  I only have two years to take him to court.  I think that I will fly in and at least speak with an attorney.  Thanks again, Klaas.

I got caught in the nightly shut down and Klaas posted first to you labubske! Klaas is faster than a speeding bullet, you know!  ::MonkeyWink::

Anyway, here's what I was typing. I agree, BTW, with everything Klaas posted.


I'm so sorry for your loss, labubske.

Sadly, I've had to handle the estates of both my Mom and Dad, and I'll try to offer you a few things that might help. First, purely from a legal perspective, it doesn't matter who spent time with her or even what she wanted. It does matter if your Mom had a Last Will and Testimony and if so, what it says. Whatever she gave your brother while she was alive was her choice, unless you could prove she was impaired mentally. If you had contact with her after the cancer metastasized  to her brain, you might be able to make a determination about that. Speaking with her Oncologist could also be helpful in that regard.

If there is a Will, as he said, you are certainly entitled to a copy of it. Someone should be named in it to be the administrator or executor of her estate (I forget which is which, but one is for the person charged with carrying out the wishes of the deceased as outlined in the Will, and the other is the one charged with discharging an estate where there is no Will according to State Law in such matters). Either way, someone is named to discharge the Estate and that comes with obligations. If your Mom didn't name him, then you are just as qualified as he is to be that person. If you and he can't agree about that, a court can settle that for you.

A Will has to be probated and that involves filing the Will in public records. Here, that's at the courthouse of the county seat. First, the executor must be able to show that all of her debts have been paid and that includes burial expenses. After that, her assets must be distributed according to the Will. Just keep in mind that unless she legally directed otherwise, you are entitled to everything he is, EQUALLY. Part of being an executor is being able to clearly show to all heirs exactly where her estate has been/is being distributed and that starts with an inventory of what the assets are. The life insurance is interesting. I'm not quite sure how he "signed over" that to you before her death. Most life insurance has a specific named beneficiary and collecting always requires a certified death certificate. Your brother is obligated to supply invoices and receipts of bills paid on her behalf, banking records of account balances at the time of her death, an inventory of her home (if she owned it) and household goods, etc. I'd check to see when the house deed was registered in his name. That might prove interesting.

If you don't want to contact a lawyer right now, it might be very enlightening to simply call the Office of Public Records at the County Seat of where your Mother died, and ask how you go about administering your Mother's Will. I would just tell them that your Mom is very ill and you don't know what to do when she passes. Whatever process they tell you is exactly the process your brother should be following. They might also instruct you how to go about checking that deed, too.

I'm sure that others can offer more help, labubske. I'm so sorry you're going through this, but if your hinky meter is up over your brother's handling of this, my instincts say listen to it! Best wishes this all works out as it should!

Thanks, Klaas, but you're far more to the point than I am. My Dad used to apologize for writing a long letter. He always said he didn't have time to write a short one, and he was serious!

I am SO EXCITED!!! I just ordered my coffee mug!!  ::MonkeyDance:: ::MonkeyDance:: Thank You, Thank You for doing them, Klaas!! Those mugs are my very favorite and one of my old ones is chipped! I love the cup size, the handles are good and roomy and the handle stays cool after reheating coffee in the microwave!

Thank you CBB.  I certainly appreciate you taking the time to respond.  I am going to call the courthouse this morning. I did explain the life insurance part wrong...sorry about that.  Mom had each of us getting half.  He had Mom make me the beneficiary of all of that (38,000).  Likewise, he had Mom sign a Warranty Deed giving him the house when she died.  I am not familiar with Warranty Deed's so I do not know how they work when someone dies.  He had her do that so in case she had to go into a nursing home (that is what he told me)...yet, later said it was to keep the house out of probate.  So all in all her intentions were not to give the house to my brother...but to keep it out of probate.  I am guessing that she assumed he would make everything fair.  For example, instead of taking out a loan against the house for 88,000 and buy two new cars...he could have made things fair between he and I.  I just don't want to spend money that I do have and waste it on something that I have no chance at making right.

I ended up with 43,000 (life insurance and truck)
He ended up with 159,000 (home that is paid for and a couple thousand in retirement)

It doesn't seem fair.  That's all.  I miss my Mom more than the money...and would give it all back just to see her again.

I know how much it hurts, labubske, and I understand how you feel about the money. You just want what's right. None of this means anything compared to you missing your Mom. Let us know how it's going. Thinking about you!

Klaas, I've always thought you knew everything about images! Anything I ever had a question about, I always came to you and you either knew the answer or went into your bionic mode and got it in a split second!  ::MonkeyWink:: My favorite mug right now is the Christmas tree you did. I kept checking in on that thread, seeing all the requests and chuckling. I knew you'd figure out how to get everybody in there, but I'm positive nobody else could have!  ::MonkeyHaHa:: There was such good feelings around it and you did an outstanding job! Honestly, you really added a lot of joy to that Christmas for me. I'm thinking the Justice Train is going to give that one a run for the money. I can't wait to get it!!

Geez.............. now I want a cup of coffee............ sun's almost up so it's time anyway! Me and my Mug are going to start the day!!

People, I don't know about any of you but where I live it is 106 degrees and it is bloody hot hot hot.  Everything is burned.  Our tomatoes just started coming in and we are keeping them watered.  They are loaded and I don't wont to lose them. 

They have put a burn ban on and that means NO fireworks at all except the city sponsored fireworks.  Now you know kids will still go ahead and shoot off fireworks even though they have been told not to.  Now we have to really keep a close eye on these fireworks landing on our house or in our burnt up yard and catching it on fire.  Everything is a tinderbox right now.  No rain in sight.  If we can hold out til next Wed. it is suppose to be 98 degrees.   Geesh, I never thought I would consider 98 as cool!

you really are rubbing it in.

But you know it is really a bit scary with temps this high and everything so burned up.  I live a 9/10 of a mile from the volunteer fire department and they are running in and out every day.  They just went out not more than 10 minutes ago.  When it gets this hot every thing can ignite so fast and you have to keep your eyes open for fires.  I read in our newspaper the other day that mulch caught on fire under a porch and they had to call the fire dept. out before their house caught on fire.  Scary.

Enjoy your weather Klaas.  Just keep us in your thoughts as you are enjoying the fireworks next week!

People, I don't know about any of you but where I live it is 106 degrees and it is bloody hot hot hot.  Everything is burned.  Our tomatoes just started coming in and we are keeping them watered.  They are loaded and I don't wont to lose them. 

They have put a burn ban on and that means NO fireworks at all except the city sponsored fireworks.  Now you know kids will still go ahead and shoot off fireworks even though they have been told not to.  Now we have to really keep a close eye on these fireworks landing on our house or in our burnt up yard and catching it on fire.  Everything is a tinderbox right now.  No rain in sight.  If we can hold out til next Wed. it is suppose to be 98 degrees.   Geesh, I never thought I would consider 98 as cool!

 ::HelloKitty:: 

Blue Moon  That's what we have had for a couple weeks now. Today it only got to 103. Then we drop to a cool 97/99. Yippee.  I don't go out unless I have to. I feel for you. That's how we were last year for the 4th. This year we have had enough rain so the kids can have their fireworks. But a couple more weeks of this heat and we will be on a burn ban once again. Try and stay cool. Hope you can keep your tomatoes going. Didn't have any luck this year.  ::MonkeyNoNo::

Thanks, green eyes.  We go to my brothers every 4th of July and their entire neighborhood does fireworks.  I haven't talked to him to see how he is taking it that they cannot do their fireworks.  Heck, they are saying the fines can reach $500.  But like I said, kids will still do it and I just know they will catch something on fire.  It is way too early for these high temps.  We usually have maybe 100 degrees in mid to late August, not January.

It's so hard when you enjoy the 4th and can't do the fireworks. When we lived in Calif. The whole family would get together and do the BBQ and swimming etc. Then sit for hours and do fireworks. As every body would go crazy and bring some. So much fun. And wonderful memories. Prayers no one starts a fire.  As hot as it's been here in Texas this year it's not as bad as last year. It started in May and didn't end until Sept. Tell your brother to just save everything for next year and have double the fun.

My Brother is as big a kid as the 15-18 year olds.  He is probably taking it really hard on the ban.

It is currently 110 degrees. I have never seen the radar show a pink haze all over our area.  Weird.

I turned everybody loose about an hour ago and told them to go home and MAKE SURE their dogs were inside!! Whew........it's HOT!

Klaas???  I see those temperatures you posted!    ::MonkeyTease::

The three year old LOVES the pool, but I've been trying to wait until around 5:30 to let him go. I'm scared he's going to get burnt. Just have to share a couple of pics with you guys. He's really into Toy Story, so he runs and jumps while yelling, "To Infinity and Beyond!"

How cute he is!!!!  You know if it is as hot there as it is here he will burn in no time. Better keep a good eye on the skin or put lotion on.

I am washing all my bed cloths and regular wash and instead of tying up the dryer with all the sheets, pillow case etc I am hanging them outside and it is only taking about 10 minutes or less to dry all those cloths that would take at least 45 minutes per load.

Yes they have. There are only a couple places that still allow them. At least there were last year.  I enjoy watching them and watching the kids enjoy them. I figured after preparing all the food etc. It was hubs turn and I would sit back with a cool drink and watch and relax. ::MonkeyWink::

Yikes Blue Moon that's hot. Stay cool. Your poor brother sounds like my oldest brother. That's sweet he enjoys it so much. Are they banning the city fireworks too? They even cancelled all the city fireworks here last year. We had crazy neighbors last year that thought it would be okay to set off bottle rockets. I was very glad when they moved.

No, the city fireworks continue---it will be at the Corvette Museum and the city fire department will be there to help in case of any problems.

The Barren River lake will have their fireworks but it is down by the water's edge and they will also have local fire dept's there to help out.

So I guess if we want to have fireworks this year we have to go to one or the other location.

We used to go across the Tennessee state line and buy "real" fireworks because they were illegal here.  Boy, we could get some really good fireworks.  We used to live a few houses down from my parents and we would gather after dark with those illegal fireworks and set them off until they were all gone.  Well my father could not sleep because we were setting off fireworks so here he comes walking to our house.  My brother said, Oh, here comes Daddy, watch this!  Well he shot a bottle rocket toward my father and it hit his new pair of shorts and my father was furious.  If it had been anyone other than "his baby" (because he was the youngest in the family) he would have killed us.  That is where my brother got his passion for fireworks is from me and my hubby!!!!! He just cannot outgrown those good ole days.  ::monkeywine2:: ::monkeywine2::

Blue Moon.... They've banned personal fireworks here as well, but the City is still planning their display. I love the story you shared!!  ::MonkeyDance::

It's 9:43AM and it's already 80*. (Why isn't there a "degree" symbol on a keyboard?) We're supposed to get to 103* today. Yesterday, at 5:00PM it was still 102*. I keep thinking about the millions of people without power in the DC, Northern Virginia area. That's going to be brutal in this heat.

Stay cool everybody! Remember your pets!!    ::dogwag::   ::piggy::   ::rhino::   ::HelloKitty::

See, this is what I was afraid of.  It was caused from fireworks being shot off.  It appears to be out of control.

(http://i1261.photobucket.com/albums/ii587/mldbritt/AwvpmtgCQAAy1KF.jpg)


They have called out our fire dept and others in the county.  From what I understand there is another big fire in the city limits, also from fireworks.

They have all 10 volunteer fire dept's and the city's fire department there. 

So far no one around here is setting off fireworks.  They are getting reports that people are setting off fireworks still and they call the police dept. and they say they can't do anything unless they catch them setting them off.  We have a ban and you can be fined upwards of $500
for setting them off and they won't do anything. 

They have a man on a tractor out in the field and they can't get his attention to get him out of there.  Surely he will see the smoke and flames.

Oh well, it is now 101* and we are under an excessive heat warning.  Heck, 101 is a whole lot better than 110*!

Sometimes plowing furrows is a way to make a fire break.  I wonder if that's what he's trying to do?  He should get out of there, no telling how fast fire can travel.  From what I understand, the only safe place to be would be where it's already burned black.

They did get it under control.  Turns out it was bales of hay that spontaneously caught fire.  We are "maybe" suppose to have 30% chance of rain for the next 3 days---hey, that's better than nothing!

Temps are suppose to be in the mid to upper 90's so that will help some.

We just have to keep our eyes out for fireworks now through Thursday.

I hope you don't have the stifling heat that we have had.  It is awful!

Hiya, Blue Moon!  ::HelloKitty::

It's hot, but today we're supposed to stay out of triple digits. The high today will be in the high 90's and it stormed for hours last night so this morning there was a little break in the heaviness in the air. Honestly, I had the little one at the park yesterday morning and it took me all day to get over it. I just couldn't seem to get a full breath for the rest of the day. The humidity remains high and that's really hard on anyone with respiratory problems.

I think you'll be fine. As the week goes on, we're supposed to be closer to normal. If you're going to be walking around much, dress for heat and slip a water bottle in your purse! Plan on time to get out of the sun during the afternoon hours.

I'm glad they were able to contain the fire in your neck of the woods, Blue Moon! We needed the rain we got last night and I'm hoping the risk of fire is less today because of it!

Yep, get a mug! I love them!   ::MonkeyWink::

We are in Northern Virginia---bad storm last night.  Hard to find a hotel as all are full with people trying to get power back on and fighting fires in the Massanuttan mountain.

Stay safe.  I will be coming back through there this weekend.  Came through yesterday on our way here and ran in a thunderstorm around Brushy mountain near Kingsport, we had to pull off into a church parking lot because you could not see where you were going.  Not good in the mountains.  It was really scary.   ::HelloKitty:: ::HelloKitty::

Just heard that Townsend was hit pretty bad and two dead.  I am trying to get hold of my brother, he has a trailer down there.

You are right CBB, it is a daily afternoon occurrence.  The head is so bad we cannot really do anything here.  Hard to site see when it is so hot you cannot breath and walk.  We did do a museum yesterday and it was very interesting.  We also saw the "Singing Tower of Bells".  It was a pretty site.  I will post some pics when I get back.

Stay safe.  Hope we hear from Mere soon.

Those Midwest storms came down South, and we got them this morning. Winds have died down, they were about 60 MPH in gusts. Wicked weather we been having all over.

Hoping it doesn't have to do with the 2012 Incan curse, or something.

About the computer virus... what if we stay off the computer on Monday? When we come back to it on Tuesday, would the computer still be working?

Hi there....I should have come back to let you know that I am not still
in the bathroom tub with the quilt and pillow....lol.

Those winds were serious.  They are still looking for a young man
missing on one of the area lakes.  And a death due to a fallen tree.
Will be riding around tomorrow to look at some of the farms.

It was a good way to test a new roof that was just put on.  It held and
there were no leaks.

Blue Moon you sound like you are having an adventure.  Hope your
brother was fine.

CBB.....I was not sure it was going to hold together until it got to you....but
I thought....just in case I would let you know.  It came up very quickly here.

Will check back soon.  Have a good weekend...!      ::MonkeyBike::

No one has ever accused me of being computer savvy, but according to what I read, it won't save you to just stay off the computer on Monday, Itaryl Moosee. Apparently the attack was blocked temporarily, but the temporary fix will expire on the 9th.

CBB, it's human nature.

The internet is such a valuable tool to create and do good, but unfortunately some people always find the way to use it for evil purposes... to satisfy primal needs, to victimize others, to steal, to create havoc.

If these hackers were to use their "tech savviness" to do good, it would be a better world.

I gotta mention how terrible the text-n-drive situation is getting.

Two times this past week, I almost got into an accident with someone who was texting at the wheel.

The most worrying part is that after nearly causing a terrible accident, these people get back in their cars, and keep texting/driving.

They are not going to stop texting, no matter what, it is an addiction. IMO

Thx, Seahorse.

It's an addiction. Their mind is sorta locked inside their tiny phones, and it's like the world around them doesn't exist.

Sort of like the computer addiction I had a few years ago. But, with the computer addiction one stays inside the home and harms nobody, other than gaining some weight and ruining the back.

Something has to be done, just not sure what. The local base gives tickets to people using their cellphone while driving, even if the phones are used for just talking. Not sure if the cities can do that without a congressional act.

Itaryl,

Defense driving is what I will focus on.

I think of people walking, and dogs, and a ninety-year old driver on the road.  A texter is who I will be put on my list of priorities. Thanks for being it to my attention.

If a kid is driving the parents car, and texts, I would think parents could be sued like any minor who gets into an accident.

But, if the minor is texting in his or her car, would the parents be held accountable for their
child texting?  TIA.

Hi all. I've been missing for a while but back catching up on news/cases/etc... Good to be back in the cage.

While catching up I thought I'd swing over here and ask for advice again about something I already shared about some here.

If you have neighbors harrassing you constantly, you have some evidence of it on video with audio, and after four calls to LE about it the officer says to take it to magistrate court. You call magistrate court and are told there's not really anything you can do but hire a lawyer to sue... you explain that the officer assured that magistrate court would have more ideas on options about what to do but are told, "honey, that's what they all say"... would that make sense to you? It doesn't to me or my husband.

And on the fourth visit out, LE arrested one of them. Turns out the reason they acted so violent every time we would simply cut the grass or open the curtains, getting anywhere near their place for any reason or looking out our back windows was because the woman was hiding out as there was a warrant for her in another county. This time, the fourth time we called for help, this officer had suspicions, asked for id, checked them out and found out about the warrant. He told us they both told him they wouldn't bother us anymore because they plan on moving but they're still there. They've stopped ranting threats and such, but this woman is a hot headed nut case. After finding out their names we did our own digging and found she's got a violent past, he's been in trouble with drugs and is a theif, and both
are repeat offenders for quite some years now. They're renting so not sure why the moving is taking so long. Did some digging on the place they're renting and found out that the past several tenants that have rented there were arrested for anything from meth to even impersonating a police officer!

We've got a security camera on every corner of the place outside and asked for police patrols... but after nearly three months of their behavior, we feel sure she's not finished with us yet and her stupid boyfriend/husband will go along with whatever she wants to do like he always does.

Anyone know what we can do to further protect ourselves from these nuts? I felt sure going to magistrate would have offered us something... like a peace warrant, if they're still called that? Anyone have ideas?

Nora

Nick and Nora,

I would suggest a Priest.  If I were in your shoes, I would approach a good priest and ask
him to bless both houses and both yards.  He may not be able to walk on to their property,
but he may be able to sprinkle holy water in their direction :)

I have the Infant of Prague  statue, hiding in a fir tree.  ::MonkeyHaHa::
The Infant of Prague is on guard duty to watch a neighbor, gives me peace of mind.

I found out you alway need a witness. The fruitcake neighbor called the police on me.
I told the policeman, I have a witness, he said, "you do"?  I said, "yes, I do"...
He left and did not return. The fruitcake, came over and apologized, I told her, I told the cop you lied,  she said, she knows, he told her.  You alway's need a witness.

MOSCOW'S WILD DOGS RIDE SUBWAYS TO CITY CENTER IN SEARCH OF FOOD:

(http://i25.photobucket.com/albums/c100/crazybabyborgs/Moscow-Train-Dog-1.jpg)

Each morning, like clockwork, they board the subway, off to begin their daily routine amidst the hustle and bustle of the city.

But these aren’t just any daily commuters. These are stray dogs who live in the outskirts of Moscow Russia and commute on the underground trains to and from the city centre in search of food scraps.

Then after a hard day scavenging and begging on the streets, they hop back on the train and return to the suburbs where they spend the night.    ::snipping2::

I have the Infant of Prague  statue, hiding in a fir tree.  ::MonkeyHaHa::
The Infant of Prague is on guard duty to watch a neighbor, gives me peace of mind.

I found out you alway need a witness. The fruitcake neighbor called the police on me.
I told the policeman, I have a witness, he said, "you do"?  I said, "yes, I do"...
He left and did not return. The fruitcake, came over and apologized, I told her, I told the cop you lied,  she said, she knows, he told her.  You alway's need a witness.

We have been discussing asking our priest to come out and bless our place the past few days... and Father often slings pretty far, he has quite an arm.  ::MonkeyHaHa:: It's just quite a distance for Father to have to drive. He'd do it and happily but with gas prices and all... I'm thinking we should offer to drive him out here and back.

I'm going to look for our own Infant of Prague... we have the perfect place for it back there.  ::MonkeyWink::  That's a good idea. Maybe a Saint Joseph too!

So glad you had a witness! If you lie to police here they'll lock you up, so she was lucky that didn't happen. The first officer that came out to help us said to never have any encounters with them at all and to not even tell them "I'm calling the police." So we've never said a word to them. We have cameras everywhere witnessing everything. Wish we had the funds to do that sooner than we did. The cameras we have not only see all but hear it all too... and it's all recorded around the clock. They complained to the officer about it when they found out we have videos of the stuff they've been doing and that the officer saw it. The officer told them "They have a right to protect their home." You can't hear what they say at their home, just muffled sounds, but when they scream threats and fight like they do... it picks up every word.

A friend gave me a number for legal aid. I'm going to call and see if they can offer any insight. Hopefully it's cheap or even better, free. It seems to me we have enough proof to get some kind of peace warrant or whatever they're called now.

Hi all. I've been missing for a while but back catching up on news/cases/etc... Good to be back in the cage.

While catching up I thought I'd swing over here and ask for advice again about something I already shared about some here.

If you have neighbors harrassing you constantly, you have some evidence of it on video with audio, and after four calls to LE about it the officer says to take it to magistrate court. You call magistrate court and are told there's not really anything you can do but hire a lawyer to sue... you explain that the officer assured that magistrate court would have more ideas on options about what to do but are told, "honey, that's what they all say"... would that make sense to you? It doesn't to me or my husband.

And on the fourth visit out, LE arrested one of them. Turns out the reason they acted so violent every time we would simply cut the grass or open the curtains, getting anywhere near their place for any reason or looking out our back windows was because the woman was hiding out as there was a warrant for her in another county. This time, the fourth time we called for help, this officer had suspicions, asked for id, checked them out and found out about the warrant. He told us they both told him they wouldn't bother us anymore because they plan on moving but they're still there. They've stopped ranting threats and such, but this woman is a hot headed nut case. After finding out their names we did our own digging and found she's got a violent past, he's been in trouble with drugs and is a theif, and both
are repeat offenders for quite some years now. They're renting so not sure why the moving is taking so long. Did some digging on the place they're renting and found out that the past several tenants that have rented there were arrested for anything from meth to even impersonating a police officer!

We've got a security camera on every corner of the place outside and asked for police patrols... but after nearly three months of their behavior, we feel sure she's not finished with us yet and her stupid boyfriend/husband will go along with whatever she wants to do like he always does.

Anyone know what we can do to further protect ourselves from these nuts? I felt sure going to magistrate would have offered us something... like a peace warrant, if they're still called that? Anyone have ideas?

Nora

I think I would find out who owns the house and start complaining to them.  Possibly it will get some action.

St. Joseph statue sounds good, too. 

The Nuns would have quite a throwing arm, as well  ::MonkeyHaHa::

We never had any criminals from our class.  Sometimes, I wonder if a little fear,
instilled in children is a good thing, no beating up, just a little fear.

You would think anyone would be arrested with messing around with a false report.

My neighbors history is in the records. Your neighbor's history is in the records, too.

A baby monitor may be useful.  I remember on the news, a woman heard a intruder from a baby monitor.  When I see one on a tag sale, I think I will spring for one, myself. 

I guess you could put a Baby monitor outside?  If you want to know what is going on.
You seem to be pretty set with your security system.

Do you have a blessed candle in your house?

I say a three minute prayer with  a quick candle lighting, and it  gives such peace of mind.
I will keep you and your neighbor in mind, when I light the candle :)

I have stopped getting angry about my neighbor because it was showing on my face.
She is Beastly , and I was begin looking Beastly  ::MonkeyHaHa:: So I went with the prayer and candle thing.

Edited to add:  The coolest thing happened when he first took off from the nest.  He landed on the ground and could only get up in the air for a couple seconds.  So he kept trying but was headed out towards the busy street out in front of our house.  WELL, all of a sudden about 8 adult sparrows dropped down to the ground and "herded" him away from the street into some planters and trees.  IT WAS SO COOL!

I think I know a few of those nuns you mentioned.  ::MonkeyHaHa::  I went to your regular run of the mill public school but in the 70's you were still afraid of getting paddled by your teacher or going to the principal's office. It's wild because by the time I was in highschool in the 80's, no fear of any teacher/principal/superintendent. What a change just in that time span. By the time my kids started kindergarten, it was shocking how kids behaved and now... you just wonder how much worse it's going to get. We homeschooled our kids... and it worked out good....where my kids would get sent to the daddy/principal's office. ::MonkeyWink:: They didn't turn out perfect but they respect others and keep their noses clean.

The last time an officer came out he said we should call the local drug unit and tell them what we've been seeing. We left a message at the number he gave us over a week ago and got a call to come in and talk with someone. So wednesday we talked with a detective. Nice guy too. He listened to everything we told him, wrote down names, and seemed really interested in one name in particular for some reason. He told us if they give us any further trouble to call police. We told him we've already called so many times and that we've been referred to magistrate court about the problem. He just shook his head and said, "Call the police on them again if they do anything else. That's what we're here for." He said if an officer complains to us about it, (like one of them did), he said to call their supervisor about it. I'm going to wait and see what legal aid says though, just to be on the safe side. It was a good meeting with the detective. He asked a lot of questions and listened to everything we shared with him. We asked just out of curiosity what will they do and he of course wouldn't go into it much but said it can be anything from stopping on the street to check for license/insurance to knocking on the door and asking if they're selling. He made a face while he said that so... we didn't pry any further. A face like "I can't really share that much with you, you know?"

The street patrols we had requested stopped a week ago but yesterday we saw a patrol car going by slowly. We didn't request they extend it. They're on the drug unit radar.

I know a gal that simply got her facts wrong about a situation and got arrested for lying to police in our area several years ago. Too bad they don't take it seriously like that with your forked tongue neighbor.

I am wondering if a baby monitor may be able to pick up more sound though. I think I'll check out the next yard sale or thrift store I'm near and see if I can pick one up. Maybe they can pick up sound better than our cams. Thanks for the idea.

I have one candle from my husband's confirmation last year... does that count as a blessed candle?

I have an Infant of Prague and Saint Joseph statues on the way to our mailbox.

Thank you for praying, Seahorse. I appreciate that very much. Our priest situation is still on hold. One is on vacation until the end of next week and the other has his schedule full until then also. We picked a busy time to finally decide on that one. We should have requested the blessing as soon as the trouble started. It's been quiet around here for the past few days though and that's a miracle!

What a good story! From a bird lover, thank you for sharing that with us! Those baby birds can make one worry! We have some baby cardinals we're watching outside our place every day lately. Poor daddy cardinal has his wings full with four babies that are learning to fly. I said something about how that poor cardinal has his hands full and my hubby said "Can you imagine having to take care of 4 toddlers that can fly???" I put out some special suet just for that bird.

St. Joseph statue sounds good, too. 

The Nuns would have quite a throwing arm, as well  ::MonkeyHaHa::

We never had any criminals from our class.  Sometimes, I wonder if a little fear,
instilled in children is a good thing, no beating up, just a little fear.

You would think anyone would be arrested with messing around with a false report.

My neighbors history is in the records. Your neighbor's history is in the records, too.


A baby monitor may be useful.  I remember on the news, a woman heard a intruder from a baby monitor.  When I see one on a tag sale, I think I will spring for one, myself. 

I guess you could put a Baby monitor outside?  If you want to know what is going on.
You seem to be pretty set with your security system.

Do you have a blessed candle in your house?

I say a three minute prayer with  a quick candle lighting, and it  gives such peace of mind.
I will keep you and your neighbor in mind, when I light the candle :)

I have stopped getting angry about my neighbor because it was showing on my face.
She is Beastly , and I was begin looking Beastly  ::MonkeyHaHa:: So I went with the prayer and candle thing.

I think I know a few of those nuns you mentioned.  ::MonkeyHaHa::  I went to your regular run of the mill public school but in the 70's you were still afraid of getting paddled by your teacher or going to the principal's office. It's wild because by the time I was in highschool in the 80's, no fear of any teacher/principal/superintendent. What a change just in that time span. By the time my kids started kindergarten, it was shocking how kids behaved and now... you just wonder how much worse it's going to get. We homeschooled our kids... and it worked out good....where my kids would get sent to the daddy/principal's office. ::MonkeyWink:: They didn't turn out perfect but they respect others and keep their noses clean.

The last time an officer came out he said we should call the local drug unit and tell them what we've been seeing. We left a message at the number he gave us over a week ago and got a call to come in and talk with someone. So wednesday we talked with a detective. Nice guy too. He listened to everything we told him, wrote down names, and seemed really interested in one name in particular for some reason. He told us if they give us any further trouble to call police. We told him we've already called so many times and that we've been referred to magistrate court about the problem. He just shook his head and said, "Call the police on them again if they do anything else. That's what we're here for." He said if an officer complains to us about it, (like one of them did), he said to call their supervisor about it. I'm going to wait and see what legal aid says though, just to be on the safe side. It was a good meeting with the detective. He asked a lot of questions and listened to everything we shared with him. We asked just out of curiosity what will they do and he of course wouldn't go into it much but said it can be anything from stopping on the street to check for license/insurance to knocking on the door and asking if they're selling. He made a face while he said that so... we didn't pry any further. A face like "I can't really share that much with you, you know?"

The street patrols we had requested stopped a week ago but yesterday we saw a patrol car going by slowly. We didn't request they extend it. They're on the drug unit radar.

I know a gal that simply got her facts wrong about a situation and got arrested for lying to police in our area several years ago. Too bad they don't take it seriously like that with your forked tongue neighbor.

I am wondering if a baby monitor may be able to pick up more sound though. I think I'll check out the next yard sale or thrift store I'm near and see if I can pick one up. Maybe they can pick up sound better than our cams. Thanks for the idea.

I have one candle from my husband's confirmation last year... does that count as a blessed candle?

I have an Infant of Prague and Saint Joseph statues on the way to our mailbox.

Thank you for praying, Seahorse. I appreciate that very much. Our priest situation is still on hold. One is on vacation until the end of next week and the other has his schedule full until then also. We picked a busy time to finally decide on that one. We should have requested the blessing as soon as the trouble started. It's been quiet around here for the past few days though and that's a miracle!

Sorry that you seem to have the neighbors from Hades.  I can't imagine how you must feel -- violated is the word that comes to mind.  I hope the new statues will help and will add you to my prayer list.   ::MonkeyAngel::

NickandNora,

Did you find St. Joe and the Infant of Prague, in a catalog? :) 

The blessed candle from your husband's Confirmation will work.

I am going to look into Holy Water and put in the house ::MonkeyHaHa::



Consumers Reports may be a good source for baby monitors ratings. 

Love Nick and Nora movies, what chemistry they had together and elegant fashions.

I will say a Three minute Prayer for you.  ::MonkeyDance::

Afternoon Monkeys ::HelloKitty::  Want to share a helpful hint that actually works. ::MonkeyWink:: Grand daughter went into a panic when she found a tick on her dog. I had received an email awhile back about how to remove them easily. Thought okay will give it a try. Soak a cotton ball with liquid dish soap and run the tick and area around the tick for about a minute. The tick will back out and will stick to the cotton ball. The tick backed out but didn't stick to the cotton ball. But I used tweezers to pull it out of the hair. I was amazed it really worked.  ::MonkeyHaHa::

Olympic athletes and their pets
When they're not in the gym, on the field or in the pool, these U.S. Olympians can be found snuggling with some of their biggest fans.

July 30, 2012



Olympic athletes rely on the encouragement of their friends, family and fans. But many U.S. Olympians also have furry, four-legged friends who have offered them constant support as they worked toward the 2012 Games. Here's a look at eight U.S. Olympic athletes and the canine companions and feline fans that love them.

Stay strong.  Keep your memories alive.

Thank-you, Green Eyes, for the Tip.

I have a Tip for when your lights go out: solar lights, inside the house :)

I just saw this tip on TV.  A woman brought her solar lights inside the house and used them all night long.  In the morning, she would put the solar lights, back outside to recharge.

She put a solar light in a vase and played cards, it was that well lit.

Her kids would walk around the house with a solar light, as you would with a flashlight.

This is just great...no need for extra batteries.

Hello Monkey's,

Greeneyes,

You are welcome.  The woman is a genius to think of the solar lights! :)

Well lets see:  I will have frozen, plastic bags filled with water or Kool-aid: ::MonkeyEek::
a headlamp and solar lights, to prepare for an emergency. 

Greeneyes, who would ever have thought of the solar lights?  IMO, solar lights, look sort of tacky outside, but, inside the house, maybe, in a vase, they would look more attractive.

WARNING:

http://www.technolog.msnbc.msn.com/technology/technolog/fbi-warns-online-scheme-purports-be-fbi-933215

FBI warns of online scheme that purports to be from FBI

The FBI issued a warning Thursday about a new malware scheme that is meant to deceive and frighten computer users into thinking it's from the law enforcement agency itself. Worse, the malware also tries to immediately extort users into paying a fine online and it can lock your computer. You may need an expert's help to get it unlocked, the agency said.

"We’re getting inundated with complaints," said Donna Gregory of the federal Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3), in a statement on the FBI's website.

Users can find themselves faced with "Reveton ransomware," as it's called, by clicking on a compromised website, the FBI said.

"Once infected, the victim’s computer immediately locks, and the monitor displays a screen stating there has been a violation of federal law," similar to the one shown here.

    The bogus message goes on to say that the user’s Internet address was identified by the FBI or the Department of Justice’s Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section as having been associated with child pornography sites or other illegal online activity. To unlock their machines, users are required to pay a fine using a prepaid money card service.

"Some people have actually paid the so-called fine," said Gregory.

Mother dog rescues her puppies from burning house, places them on fire truck
 
A mother dog in Chile rescued her five 10-day-old puppies from a house fire

The dog, called Amanda, rescued them one by one from the flames and moved up to the fire truck. One of the puppies suffered serious burns and is being tented to at a veterinary clinic.


There's little a mother wouldn't do to save her babies, and that includes rescuing them one-by-one from a house fire.

Photos of a dog in Chile apparently carrying all five of her 10-day-old puppies from a burning house then placing them in the back of a fire truck made the rounds on social media Saturday

I've started a thread in Health and Medical Issues "West Nile Virus".  There are a large number of cases in Dallas County in Texas, but it looks like there are cases all over the U.S.

I will share with you my adventure this weekend.  We went to Pigeon Forge, TN., I did some shopping.  Saturday morning we go over to Cades Cove to see what damage occurred back a few weeks ago from the storms.  We stopped at the visitor center and my hubby goes over and talks to the park ranger.  He asks him about the Parsons Branch road going out of Cades Cove.  The ranger told him he would recommend that you have a 4x4 vehicle (which we do not)  before traveling that road--or at least a high-clearance vehicle.  Hubby tells me he has always wanted to travel that road so he drives in that direction----all against my objections.  We turn onto the road and there is a sign that says "Enter at your own risk.  Primitive mountain road. No services available"  So we drive on that road for 7 miles and it takes over 1 hour to get to the end of that road.  I was scared to death.  It is nothing but a gravel road.  The road was created back in the 1800's for wagons.  It was only one of two roads leading out of the cove for the settlers to travel.  It went south out of the cove and ends at the N.C./Tennessee border.  The road was very hard to drive.  Loose gravel made it very difficult.  We climbed up one part of the mountain and didn't think we were going to make it up because of the loose gravel and at the top you had to lift yourself out of your seat to see where the road went which was straight down.  We crossed lots of creeks/branches with concrete bridges over them but water rushing over the roadway.  Scary thinking you might slide off that bridge from the rushing water.   About an hour later we reached the end of the road.  I was so relieved-----Until we turned onto highway 129 and realized we were now on the road known as the "Tail of the Dragon".   This road has 318 curves in the 10 miles of the road and motorcycles come from all over the country to travel this road.  Here we are in our SUV flying down the mountain with motorcycles right behind us.  I yell at my hubby to slow down and he pulls over at each pull-off so the the motorcycles can go around us. 

We had a very interesting day and when we got back to our room I collapsed!!!  My hubby said "Now we have done everything there is to do in Tennessee--next we are going to take on North Carolina".  I don't know if my nerves can stand it.  North Carolina mountains are worse than Tennessee mountains.

I saw them here at our university back in the late 80's when they opened the Corvette museum.  They were great.  We really rocked out that day.  They put on a fantastic show that day. We had corvettes driving outside the stadium and honking as they were singing.  It was a great show.  I had to get my Mom to keep my son that day.  She told me that me and my hubby were too old to be acting like teenagers!  Imagine that.  I would pay to see them again if they get anywhere near here. 

They are singing a lot of new songs tonight.  They are still great.   ::monkeywine2::  ::MonkeyWink::

Heart.  It's the shape of a heart on the side

<3 Meaning "sideways heart" (love, friendship)
or
<3 Meaning "broken heart"

<33 Meaning "heart or love" (more 3s is a bigger heart)

I think the worst is over for us. Very very very wet :-) And windy. We'll have squalls for the next 6 hours or so, but hopefully less frequently and shorter durations.

Now we all turn our eyes and prayers to NOLA :-(  Isaac is strengthening to hurricane force winds and headed that way. Definitely somewhere in the gulf.

Prayers that all in Isaac's path stay safe.

I'm in Pensacola, and for the past two days the hurricane was said to be coming our way, but now it seems that it's going more West towards Louisiana and Mississippi.

It has been ridiculous this past two days. I went to Sam's Club yesterday and there was NO water left. Went to Walmart yesterday and today, no water. The town has run out of fuel, no gasoline anywhere.

Thank God I had filled the tank Wednesday, and have a fresh case of water in my garage, that I regularly use for making bottled tea.

People today were buying cartfuls of spoilable groceries (milk, bread, meats). Stupid, because if the power goes out the food rots in the fridge/freezer.

The only thing that worries me here are the stray animals that live in the woods behind my home. Last month it rained hard, and it flooded really bad. I saw a few carcasses of cats and raccoons float down with the water. They have made the trees and borrows in the ground their homes when the ground is dry, then when it floods they get trapped. Sad.

To those in La, Ms, Al... keep safe!

Blue moon on Friday: How to watch online

Published August 30, 2012

Night sky observers around the world will have the chance to see a special full moon — one that has been dubbed a "blue moon" — this Friday, Aug. 31.

But, even those who are thwarted by less-than-ideal conditions outside will be able to tune in online to see spectacular lunar views.

The web-based Slooh Space Camera, which showcases live views from various telescopes around the world, is hosting a special broadcast of the blue moon on Friday, beginning at 6 p.m. EDT (2200 GMT).

Here is what happened in court yesterday. Now more waiting, and praying the Judge does the right thing.

Boyce pleads guilty in crash that killed family of four
 
By Alex Bridges -- abridges@nvdaily.com

WINCHESTER -- Steven A. Boyce faces prison time for accidentally causing the DUI-related crash that killed a family of four in Frederick County last June.

Boyce, 22, of 221 Hawk Trail, Shawneeland, appeared Wednesday in Frederick County Circuit Court to stand trial on four counts of aggravated involuntary manslaughter, a first offense of driving under the influence and underage possession of alcohol related to the June 26 collision. Boyce instead entered an agreement reached between the commonwealth and his attorneys under which he pleaded guilty as charged.

Authorities accused Boyce of driving drunk and then causing the accident that killed Amanda and Mark Roe and their children, Caleb and Tyler. Boyce's pickup rear-ended the Roe's Jeep Cherokee stopped at a traffic light at the intersection of Martinsburg Pike and Interstate 81. The impact ruptured the Jeep's rear-mounted fuel tank, which then caused the SUV to burst into flames.

Retired Judge Benjamin Kendrick accepted Boyce's pleas of guilt and scheduled sentencing for Sept. 25. The judge heard evidence the prosecution planned to present had the case gone to trial. Boyce's attorneys, William A. "Beau" Bassler and David Hensley, did not put on evidence for their client though Bassler said they intend to call witnesses at the sentencing hearing.

Boyce faces a maximum of 20 years in prison on each manslaughter charge and two, 12-month jail terms for the remaining misdemeanor counts. Boyce also faces serving an addition three years in prison for violating the terms of his supervised probation ordered with a suspended sentence on an earlier offense. Causing the crash and committing the related offenses violated the terms of the probation.

While Boyce's charges carry a maximum of 85 years behind bars, the deal leaves sentencing up to a judge but does not limit punishment to the range calculated under the state guidelines.

Blue moon on Friday: How to watch online

Published August 30, 2012

Night sky observers around the world will have the chance to see a special full moon — one that has been dubbed a "blue moon" — this Friday, Aug. 31.

But, even those who are thwarted by less-than-ideal conditions outside will be able to tune in online to see spectacular lunar views.

The web-based Slooh Space Camera, which showcases live views from various telescopes around the world, is hosting a special broadcast of the blue moon on Friday, beginning at 6 p.m. EDT (2200 GMT).

I saw that yesterday.  But the one I saw looked more like a green moon.  My name comes from the song "Blue Moon of Kentucky" sung by Bill Monroe, good ole bluegrass music.  It also comes from "Blue Moon" beer.   ::monkeywine2:: ::monkeywine2:: ::monkeywine2:: ::monkeywine2::

I'm definitely familiar with the music of Bill Monroe & I've seen "Blue Moon" beer, but when I see your nic "Blue Moon" on the forum, I think of Nanci Griffith and her "Once in a Very Blue Moon".

How could I go about requesting a section for sex offenders (wanted/absconded) with a Facebook page...I have found a few in my spare time.  It's sick and the one that I am looking at tonight is on Zoosk (and has made many female friends it appears from his Facebook page).  Do they not check him out?  I know I do.  Anyhow, it would be nice to have...this guy is in the Orlando area...several missing from here.  It would be nice if it were kept from public view...so they don't go off of the radar.  I sent a tip in...but, who knows if it will be followed up on.  This guy is charged with sexual battery with a weapon.  Scary...he is on MY streets...

labubske, if it's more than just a thread you're asking for, it would be Klaasend's decision.  I'm sure she'll see this and give you an answer (if she's not doing at as I compose this.  ::MonkeyWink:: ) As far as anything being kept from view, I can already answer that.  We don't have places here at Scared Monkeys that are out of view.  All posts are available for viewing for all to see.  

I wonder if some of the sex offenders with facebook pages are violating their terms of probation and etc. for having a fb page?  The more I read, the scarier it seems, especially as we find some are serial offenders. As LE's tools improve, I think we'll see more and more crimes linked and I think we only see the tip of the iceberg most of the time. JMHO  

Let's see what Klaas has to say.  ::bee::

Although your request is admirable and sounds like a good idea at first glance, in actuality, it's too easy to set up a fake Facebook, Zoosk, Myspace, etc and the liability of posting false information is great.  Also, you wouldn't want to give them the "heads up" that someone found them.  It is much safer sending the information to the authorities in private than posting it in the open.

Thanks Muffy and Klaas for responding.  I agree Muffy that the majority are serial offenders.  I just want them gone.  It is scary.  Klaas...I definitely see your point and respect it.  Thanks.  I will just keep finding them and sending a tip...even though it is likely nothing is done.  So sad.  This particular man is creepy and his status is awful.  I don't see  how he can be an absconder yet live openly on Facebook.

I know............ I'm technologically challenged, and way behind the times, but........

I don't know how to Twitter.

I don't understand it. On TV, you see these long lists of posts or tweets or whatever you call them, and the TV host invites you to "join the conversation". I've tried 2 times to "tweet" but I really just want to see the list they are talking about. How do you do that??    ::MonkeyEek::

If I want to read someone's tweets while I'm at my computer, I just put as where I want to go: https://twitter.com/ plus their twitter addy.

Example: 

https://twitter.com/#!/kctv5 (https://twitter.com/#!/kctv5)

https://twitter.com/#!/JudgeJeanine (https://twitter.com/#!/JudgeJeanine)

Notice the prefix for twitter addy is the same.  After the / you can put in the addy.  See?  And that's why I know how to finish out a twitter address when one of our monkeys posts a tweet and fails to put in the full address.   ::MonkeyWink::  I can see the tweeters name, and all I have to do is add the prefix, url tags and then it's a working, clickable link. 

If that's clear as mud, here is the link for twitter help center:  http://support.twitter.com/ 




THANK YOU, THANK YOU, Muffy!!  ::MonkeyDance::

OK............ I'm going to have to break down your post. LOL! Seriously, I'm going to have to decipher it like I do exams or government regulations.  I'm so excited............ I feel like you've given me a prized decoding sheet and I can now break into the safe!    ::MonkeyHaHa::

It's late, so I'll give it a try in the morning when my head isn't so cluttered. Coffee and safe cracking in the A.M.!!   ::MonkeyDance::    ::MonkeyKiss::

Klaas.......... OK, if I get to your account, will it show me a list of things people have twitted you like I see on TV when the host says "Join the conversation?"

Will I become a Twit?    ::MonkeyTongue::

I'm sure it's simple once you know how, right? I remember, (to my great embarrassment) the first time I used a computer. I started typing. I typed a line. It appeared that it was near the end of the first line, so I started looking for the "return" key. I looked and looked and just couldn't find it. Did I get up and walk away? Noooooooooooo................. I called my neighbor to ask him where it was.  ::MonkeyNoNo::

I couldn't understand a word he was saying for almost 5 minutes. He was screaming with laughter! He ended up coming over.......... I honestly think he just wanted to see it for himself!   ::MonkeyHaHa:: He has a doctorate in finance and, at the time, had been teaching at the University for years. Computers had been part of his life forever and we're good friends, but he just couldn't pass that one up. He kept showing me stuff about the internet and I wasn't interested.   ::MonkeyHaHa::

Not long after I finally started playing around just a little with "the web" on my nifty dial up modem, I decided to see if I could find a leather skirt for winter. I wanted a mid calf length and couldn't find one locally. OMG..................... I will never forget it! One late night, after everyone was in bed, I clicked a link, and it was a porn site! Not only was it a porn site but it had audio! There was this woman moaning and groaning and breathing in my den!! I tried to "x" it away like my neighbor taught me, but she just kept moaning no matter what I did! He had told me to never shut down the computer manually so I was afraid to just shut it off with the power button and she just kept breathing!! I had NO idea about the volume controls and she was LOUD! I had made the picture go away, but that woman wouldn't shut up! I kept thinking............ nobody can last this long, who's she kidding?! I almost died when my 8 year old came staggering in................... she woke him up!!!

At that point, I pushed the power button! FINALLY, she shut up!   ::MonkeyHaHa::

Hopefully, my adventure into twitter won't be so eventful.  ::MonkeyWink::

Oh, Green Eyes, you are speaking to the Queen of Genealogy.  I have traced my mothers family tree since she passed away 1998.  It has been a long journey.  I have visited every courthouse from here to Shenandoah County, VA.  I have found where her family live just 25 miles from where I live; I have visited all the courthouses around Dandridge,, TN; I have been 3 times to Shenandoah Co., VA and gone through all the records in their courthouse that dates back to 1797. I have met cousins in Delaware, Florida, Oregon, Michigan, Missouri, Illinois and I would not trade it for anything.  We are close to my 3 cousin in Michigan.  They come here all the time on their way to New Orleans to visit their son who is a chef down in the French Quarter.  He is crazy.  I took him and his wife to where our family lived and it has a road sign that says Combs Lane.  Well he HAD to have his picture made in front of it so I took it.  We went to the family graveyard and the people who own the land have 3 great danes running loose.  We drive up to the house and here comes those great danes and I say "Cousin, you get out and see if it is o.k. if we go to the cemetery".  The look on his face was priceless.  I would not trade my adventures for nothing.  I belong to a family website and transcribe all documents I get onto the website.  I had this cousin do a DNA test so we could see what particular group we belonged to because you have to have an all male lineage.  We now know what line we belong to and my next adventure is New Jersey and New York.  I have met great people along the way.  I love it.  You will too.  Good Luck.

Blue Moon,  That is so cool. I understand about meeting family. I have meant so many different members from different lines. Every time I find someone new I get so excited. I thought that doing the DNA was the next step. Since Ancestry started doing this new testing I figured why not. Have fun on your adventure to New York and New Jersey. Did that a few years back. All I can say is it was an education in many ways.  ::MonkeyWink::

Thanks Muffy and Klaas for responding.  I agree Muffy that the majority are serial offenders.  I just want them gone.  It is scary.  Klaas...I definitely see your point and respect it.  Thanks.  I will just keep finding them and sending a tip...even though it is likely nothing is done.  So sad.  This particular man is creepy and his status is awful.  I don't see  how he can be an absconder yet live openly on Facebook.

I have been told that you can report sex offenders to Facebook and that they are generally not suppose to have a FB account.  It has been awhile since I was told about this, so I am not sure of the information, just what I remember in my puny brain.   ::CowboySmiley::

Chilling 9/11 note finally reaches family
A note that Randy Scott, who perished in the collapse of the World Trade Center, made its way to his family


FoxNews.com, Standford Advocate

12:30 PM PDT, September 10, 2012


"84th Floor west office 12 people trapped."


The words were scrawled on a note by Connecticut resident Randy Scott on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, when the World Trade Center was attacked. Scott perished that fateful day, but the note withstood the collapse of the towers and was passed from hand to hand for nearly ten years before it finally reached his family, according tothe Stamford Advocate

Scott’s wife, Denise, learned about what her family refers to as “The Note” in August 2011. She had previously believed her husband died instantly after Flight 175 flew into the tower near the offices of Euro Brokers, where he worked. The scrap of paper has robbed the family of any illusion Randy Scott died a quick and merciful death.

"I spent 10 years hoping that Randy wasn't trapped in that building," Denise, 57, said to the newspaper from her Stamford home, with two of her three daughters, Rebecca, 29, and Alexandra, 22, at her side. "You don't want them to suffer. They're trapped in a burning building. It's just an unspeakable horror. And then you get this10 years later. It just changes everything.”

The Note not only has the final words written by Scott, it also has a trace amount of his blood, according to the Advocate. DNA testing confirmed a match and helped the New York City Medical Examiner’s office track down his family, the paper reported.

Randy had phoned Denise before writing the note at the school where she teaches first grade, but believing that the first crash was minor, he simply left a message with the main office letting her know that he was fine, Scott recounted to the Stamford newspaper. Denise Scott said she did not know about the attacks until later that morning, when daughter Rebecca called her from Ohio.

For the next few days, the Scotts frantically checked around at hospitals, hoping the family patriarch had dodged death. Hope slowly gave way, yet they were able to believe that because Scott's office was close to the point of impact, he had not suffered, according to the Advocate.

Just over a year ago, as the nation marked the 10th anniversary of the attacks, Denise Scott was contacted by Dr. Barbara Butcher, head of forensics investigations for the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner of New York, the Advocate reported. A tiny note had been determined to have been written by the hand of Randy Scott.

"She said, 'It's something written.' And that's when I just fell apart," Denise Scott recalled in the interview with the Advocate.

When Scott saw the note, she knew her husband had written it.

"The minute I saw it I didn't need to see the DNA test," she said to the paper. "I saw the handwriting. It's Randy's handwriting."

Such a poignant story.  The family being torn between the emotions of sadness and joy. 

I was teaching 11th graders that day.  I cried for those lost but I also cried for those students because I knew that their lives would never be the same; that this country would never be the same.  And, it hasn't.   ::MonkeyAngel::

Judge Orders Little Four Year Old Eris to Scotland
http://www.bringerishome.com/home (http://www.bringerishome.com/home)

Atlanta, GA October 17, 2011: Little Eris Chafin, just four years old, was ordered removed from her father's care in The United States where she had resided for the past eighteen months, since February, 2010. Federal District Court Judge, Inge Johnson, Clinton Appointee to the Northern District Court of Alabama, turned little Eris over to her Scottish mother, Lynne Hales Chafin. Without intervention from the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, Mr. Chafin will be forced to plea to Scottish courts for access to his daughter. Within hours of Judge Johnson's ruling, Ms. Chafin removed Eris from the United States.

Breaking News: Boyce, Drunk Driver Who Killed Roe Family of 4, Sentenced to 20 Years in Prison
STAR STAFF REPORT


WINCHESTER -- Steven Boyce, the drunk driver who plowed into a vehicle and killed all four members of the Roe family in 2011, has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.
 
Steven Boyce

 Frederick County Circuit Court Judge Benjamin Kendrick sentenced Boyce, 22, of the 200 block of Hawk Trail in Shawneeland, this morning during an emotional hearing. He pleaded guilty in August avoiding what was expected to be a three-day jury trial.
 ::snipping2::

Boyce received concurrent 15-year sentences (they'll be served at the same time) for each of the four aggravated manslaughter charges. He was then given a 12-month sentence for driving under the influence, 12 months for under-age alcohol possession and three years for a probation revocation. Those three charges will be served consecutively.
Boyce — whose blood was drawn about two hours and 20 minutes after the crash — had a blood-alcohol content of 0.33 percent.
The legal limit for a person under the age of 21 to operate a vehicle in Virginia — Boyce was 20 at the time of the accident — is 0.02. The legal limit to operate a vehicle for a person 21 or older is 0.08 percent. ::snipping2::




This was the sentence that I was expecting. Don't like it, but expected it.
Amanda's Dad and Mark's brother are very upset.

Oh Monkeys I am so excited!!  I have been working on my Family tree for a long time. Those of you that do it know how addicting it is.  ::MonkeyWink:: I received an offer from Ancestry.com to be part of their new DNA testing for genealogy. I got my kit and sent in the sample today. They said it would be 6 to 8 weeks before I heard anything back from them. But I am so jazzed. I had my daughter do it so I would hopefully get links for both sides of the family.  ::MonkeyDance::

Oh, Green Eyes, you are speaking to the Queen of Genealogy.  I have traced my mothers family tree since she passed away 1998.  It has been a long journey.  I have visited every courthouse from here to Shenandoah County, VA.  I have found where her family live just 25 miles from where I live; I have visited all the courthouses around Dandridge,, TN; I have been 3 times to Shenandoah Co., VA and gone through all the records in their courthouse that dates back to 1797. I have met cousins in Delaware, Florida, Oregon, Michigan, Missouri, Illinois and I would not trade it for anything.  We are close to my 3 cousin in Michigan.  They come here all the time on their way to New Orleans to visit their son who is a chef down in the French Quarter.  He is crazy.  I took him and his wife to where our family lived and it has a road sign that says Combs Lane.  Well he HAD to have his picture made in front of it so I took it.  We went to the family graveyard and the people who own the land have 3 great danes running loose.  We drive up to the house and here comes those great danes and I say "Cousin, you get out and see if it is o.k. if we go to the cemetery".  The look on his face was priceless.  I would not trade my adventures for nothing.  I belong to a family website and transcribe all documents I get onto the website.  I had this cousin do a DNA test so we could see what particular group we belonged to because you have to have an all male lineage.  We now know what line we belong to and my next adventure is New Jersey and New York.  I have met great people along the way.  I love it.  You will too.  Good Luck.

I have met cousins in Delaware, Florida, Oregon, Michigan, Missouri, Illinois and I would not trade it for anything.  We are close to my 3 cousin in Michigan.  They come here all the time on their way to New Orleans to visit their son who is a chef down in the French Quarter.  He is crazy.  I took him and his wife to where our family lived and it has a road sign that says Combs Lane.  Well he HAD to have his picture made in front of it so I took it.  We went to the family graveyard and the people who own the land have 3 great danes running loose.  We drive up to the house and here comes those great danes and I say "Cousin, you get out and see if it is o.k. if we go to the cemetery".  The look on his face was priceless.  I would not trade my adventures for nothing.  I belong to a family website and transcribe all documents I get onto the website.  I had this cousin do a DNA test so we could see what particular group we belonged to because you have to have an all male lineage.  We now know what line we belong to and my next adventure is New Jersey and New York.  I have met great people along the way.  I love it.  You will too.  Good Luck.

 ::piggy:: ::MonkeyDance:: ::HelloKitty::

Let me know when you get to NJ if you get a chance.

 ::MonkeyBike::



I will Bearly.  I do believe it will take some heavy prodding to get my hubby to New Jersey and New York.    ::HelloKitty::

False Creek!!  A five minute boat ride to Granville Market right across the waterway from world famous Stanley Park.

I hope Northern Rose is enjoying British Columbia's beautiful Indian summer.

The changing colors of the leaves are a little late this year but ... it is beginning to happen.  Just in time for Canadian Thanksgiving this coming Monday.  Somehow I doubt that Thankgiving would come without branches of Maple leaves throughout the house.

Magnitude 4.5 quake strikes Maine, felt in Boston



BOSTON | Tue Oct 16, 2012 7:47pm EDT

(Reuters) - A magnitude 4.5 earthquake struck the northeastern U.S. state of Maine on Tuesday at 7:12 p.m. ET, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The quake's epicenter was located 3.7 miles from Lake Arrowhead, which is about 30 miles west of Portland, Maine's most populous city, and about 100 miles north of Boston.

These mum's are over 11 years old.  They were grown in a field (garden) and they last better than mum's grown in a container.  They are spreading out and I need to dig them all up and reset them---will do that next year.  Bird bath came from a concrete place around Mammoth Cave State Park.  It has a dutch boy/girl that sets atop it but I didn't put in on this year.

Beautiful Blue Moon!  It's rare these days to see Mum's growing in the "wild".  I remember my MIL used to plant the mums she would get as gifts in the garden and they would grow like yours.  Love them!  Usually around here you just see them in pots in the stores to be given as gifts.  ::MonkeyCool::

For those that haven't tried them, HOLIDAY GRAPES are the best grapes in the world IMO.  They are only available in stores mid October thru mid November.  Right now they are at their best!  If you can get them locally please try them.  They are like candy:

http://www.facebook.com/pages/Holiday-Seedless-Grapes/31645104027 (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Holiday-Seedless-Grapes/31645104027)

(http://www.melissas.com/_resources/img/MediaCache/1b0b24e948424dacbb4189c861e187ff/129460730619738750_400_0_0_0_False_Color%20%5BEmpty%5D.jpg)

http://www.melissas.com/Products/Products/Holiday-Red-Seedless-Grapes.aspx (http://www.melissas.com/Products/Products/Holiday-Red-Seedless-Grapes.aspx)

Uses

An extra large variety from Central California specifically bred for their late maturing sweetness; Holiday Seedless Red Grapes are far superior to other common varieties at this time of the season. Available for just a very few weeks from mid October to early November, this delicacy looks as stunning as it tastes with its oversized, round, deep red fruit. In order to maintain consistently high quality, our growers go through a labor-intensive process of hand pruning, cleaning and harvesting this very special grape.
Selection, Storage and Handling

Look for bright colored grapes with no shrivel, decay or shatter. Stems should be fresh and green. Grapes should always be stored under refrigeration, preferably in the fruit crisper, set at low humidity.

We certainly are not in her direct path, but it's snowing at the clinic because of it, and it looks like it's that wet heavy stuff so we're keeping our fingers crossed that we don't loose power. They're calling for snow tonight in Kingsport. We never have snow in October and rarely in November, so my mind's just not ready for this. The kids are going to freeze on Halloween!

So far they are OK but people are starting to lose power around them and I suspect they will lose power soon as well.  My worry is flooding.  They did have some problems last year but this is worse.  They do have a generator and a pump and plenty of food/water, flashlights, batteries, etc.

Hoping San is o.k.  She is right in the midst of this storm.  My nephrew and his wife have been keeping us informed on how they they are doing--they are outside of Boston.  So far they still have electricity but don't know for how long.

Keep safe everyone!

Here's my DIL's son, Christian, and Waylon just before they headed out to trick or treat. Christian's into Ninjas and Waylon wanted to be Merlin from Sword and the Stone.

Animal control workers capture Tampa Bay's Mystery Monkey

By Laura C. Morel, Dan Sullivan and Peter Jamison, Times Staff Writers
In Print: Thursday, October 25, 2012

ST. PETERSBURG — Elizabeth Fowler watched as a tranquilizer dart punctured the monkey's torso.

He stumbled across a creek and crawled up a low branch, where he swayed as the chemicals coaxed him into slumber.

Wildlife rescuers carried the monkey out of the woods and stowed him in a cage.

The Mystery Monkey of Tampa Bay's nearly four-year run from wildlife officials was over Wednesday afternoon.

Three weeks earlier, Fowler had been bitten by the monkey, which prompted wildlife officials to intensify their search.

Fowler knew the monkey had to be caught. But like many neighbors, she had grown fond of him, and she was sad to see him go.

"I feel kind of guilty," Fowler, 60, said through tears.

The monkey's future is unclear. He was placed in quarantine Wednesday evening. If his health checks out, he could be sent to a sanctuary to be with other monkeys.

But the question remains: After thriving among humans for years, can he get along with his own kind?

The trappers arrived at Fowler's house near Lake Maggiore about 8:30 a.m. Wednesday.

They placed bananas in and around the cage that wildlife rescuer Vernon Yates had installed weeks ago to catch the monkey.

But the monkey never came. He watched them from a nearby roof.

About noon, Shannon Fowler, Elizabeth's daughter, arrived. She stood outside, waved a banana and made smooching sounds.

The monkey emerged from the woods and perched on a branch. He scampered toward the trap.

From inside the home through a sliding glass door, veterinarian Don Woodman pointed a dart rifle at the monkey and fired.

The dart hit the monkey. He crawled into the woods and pulled it out. Woodman and Yates gave chase and grabbed him with a catch pole. They shot him with a second dart.

Within a minute, the monkey was unconscious.

"It was nice to have done the job and done it well and done it smoothly," Woodman said.

Yates carried the 45-pound rhesus macaque out of the woods. Members of the Fowler family stroked the monkey's fur and said goodbye.

"It's not a joy," Shannon Fowler said. "It's bittersweet."

For more than a year, the monkey has watched the Fowlers through windows. He playfully swatted the family dog. He chased the kids across the lawn.

But the monkey's stay took a dark turn when he bit Elizabeth. Since then, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officials have been on the lookout for him.

After the capture, Woodman and Yates gave the Mystery Monkey a new name: Cornelius, after a character in Planet of the Apes.

 ::snipping2::

Woodman, owner and veterinarian at the animal hospital, said Cornelius is in good physical health and, notably, free of fleas despite his sojourn in the wild.

"Clearly, he's grooming himself well," Woodman said.

Cornelius had minor abrasions from the dart wounds, but otherwise was unharmed.

But the monkey is overweight, Woodman said, attributing the extra pounds to junk food he was fed by humans.

"He's been well-fed in the sense that he's been getting a lot of calories, but not well fed in that he hasn't been eating a balanced diet," Woodman said.

The monkey will be placed in quarantine for 30 days at Yates' wildlife compound while he is tested for diseases. Yates said he is pretty certain Cornelius is disease-free.

He will be kept in a 6-by-10- foot, chain-link cage in sight of other animals — Yates said he currently has five monkeys at his property — but will not be free to mingle with them.

"It's going to be different for him," Yates said. "He's going to have to adjust."

The probability that the monkey will have to be euthanized is "next to zero" now that he has been captured, Yates said.

So what's next for Cornelius?

Martin, the FWC spokesman, said the monkey will likely go to a sanctuary in Florida to be with other monkeys; several have already expressed interest.

Mystery Monkey tests positive for herpes B

By Laura C. Morel, Times Staff Writer
In Print: Saturday, November 3, 2012

Cornelius, formerly known as the Mystery Monkey of Tampa Bay, has tested positive for the herpes B virus.

Wildlife officials on Thursday received test results from blood that was drawn last week when the wild rhesus macaque was captured in a neighborhood near Lake Maggiore.

The results show Cornelius is healthy, but carries herpes B, a common virus in rhesus macaques, said veterinarian Don Woodman, who has been examining the animal since his capture.

The virus is not life-threatening for the monkey, but may cause "relatively mild lesions," Woodman said.

"It doesn't really change anything for Cornelius," Woodman said. "I don't see that this creates a need to euthanize him."

The virus is of greater concern to humans, who can contract it by getting bitten or scratched by a monkey. Symptoms can take up to two weeks to emerge and include fever, headache and blisters near the wound.

Humans who contract the virus can develop encephalitis, a mostly fatal illness that causes swelling of the brain. Of the 22 herpes B cases in recorded history, 15 people have died from encephalitis, according to the National Institutes of Health.

Before his capture last week, the monkey bit Elizabeth Fowler, 60, outside her home.

As a precaution, she was treated for rabies and herpes. A blood test found no evidence of disease.

After she learned of the monkey's diagnosis, she consulted with a doctor Friday and decided to get more tests just to be sure, said Fowler's daughter, Shannon.

"She's been fine," said Shannon Fowler. "She's been taking care of herself."

Dr. John Sinnott, director of infectious diseases at the University of South Florida and Tampa General Hospital, said contracting herpes B from a monkey is "a rare event."

"If he were in my back yard," he said, "I wouldn't be losing any sleep over it."

The virus, however, may make it more challenging for wildlife officials to find Cornelius a good home because he could infect others of his kind.

At least one facility, Dade City's Wild Things, is interested in adopting Cornelius after his 30-day quarantine. News that he has the virus doesn't change that, said Wild Things director Kathy Stearns.

The 22-acre facility is home to more than 200 animals, including jaguars, zebras and several monkeys.

"At this point, I fear that no one is going to want him now," Stearns said.

Stearns said the facility will find a female macaque for Cornelius if he comes to live there.

AUSTIN (KXAN) - Dudley's day begins like most of ours: he gets out of bed slowly in the morning, brushes his teeth and dresses for work. Unlike the average morning routine, however, Dudley's has been seen almost 1.5 million times.

Did we mention that Dudley is a dog?

Dudley's human, Charli Kilpatrick, said she never expected her video featuring the chocolate Labrador Retriever to go viral. She made the video as part of a group project for a communications class at the University of Texas.

These are so cool. Thanks Muffy for posting them. I am like Texasmom I wish I would have had these a few years back. With all the eat healthy stuff these days I know a lot of schools don't like sweet treats for the kids parties.  ::MonkeyNoNo:: One place I worked at didn't even like anything home made to be brought to class.  ::MonkeyShocked::



You're welcome greeneyes.  I just thought there were sweet!    ::MonkeyHaHa::  I know what you mean about healthy stuff these days. I've cut back a lot of sugar and sweets in my diet.   I went to the theater last night and before the performance I had a large chocolate chip cookie with a glass of red wine and between the glass of wine  and all the sugar in the cookie, I find myself floating on air to my seat for the performance.  ::monkeywine2::   ::piggy::  Wheeee!!   ::monkeywine2:: 

Muffy floating in your seat for the performance ::MonkeyHaHa::  Good you have been able to cut back on the sugar & sweets. I do good for a while then get that chocolate craving and wham I am hooked again.  ::MonkeyHaHa:: I am with you on the wine. It only takes one glass to have me feeling light headed.  ::MonkeyHaHa:: ::monkeywine2:: How was the performance?

Klaas that is so cute. I wanted to wish all the Monkeys a Happy Thanksgiving with card from my photo Bucket. But for what ever reason I can't get it to do anything in fact it freezes every time I try and get on it. So I am using Klaas' Turkey to Wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving. That your day is filled with lots of laughter and Joy. It seems so many monkeys have a hard a very difficult year.

GE - Photobucket recently updated to a new format/software and it could be it's causing you problems.  Not sure what the fix is but I'd bet that's why you couldn't get in.  Looks entirely different now.

I know they have re done them selves again. I think I figured out what's going on. I just have to figure how to fix it. I have no tech skills so maybe when daughter gets here today I will have her go in and re-set my cookie thingy. ::MonkeyHaHa:: I think that's what it is. It loads and then a pop up comes up to precede and that's it. It wont do any thing after that. So my security needs adjusting or something. If that makes any sense. Like I have said before I have no tech skills.

Happy Thanksgiving

This Canadian will be partaking in another Turkey dinner today.  Hubby and I have again been invited to share with youngest son's Dutch American inlaws who reside just across the line.  Son and DIL who both teach in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia will be picking us up shortly.  Classes ended a few minutes ago.

I'll share the one I made for Waylon. You enter name, age, nice, naughty and nice, or naughty, behavior being worked on, and all kinds of things. You can even enter photos.

You're welcome, labubske! Isn't that neat? Waylon LOVED it, and was talking to Santa the whole time! LOL! When he got to the gift, he got wide-eyed and said, "Is that mine"? You can choose what kind of toy they're looking for (I put "something you build"), and what best describes the child (I put "full of energy") so those things were personalized in the video too. Glad you liked it!   ::santawink::

Mine was doing the same.  I even tried going back to the old Photobucket and that did not work.  What finally worked was going to Internet Explorer, for some reason Firefox was not compatible with it.

Good luck!

About NSOPW
The Dru Sjodin National Sex Offender Public Website (NSOPW) is an unprecedented public safety resource that provides the public with access to sex offender data nationwide. NSOPW is a partnership between the U.S. Department of Justice and state, territorial, and tribal governments, working together for the safety of adults and children.

First established in 2005 as the National Sex Offender Public Registry (NSOPR), NSOPW was renamed by the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006 in honor of 22-year-old college student Dru Sjodin of Grand Forks, North Dakota, a young woman who was kidnapped and murdered by a sex offender who was registered in Minnesota.

NSOPW is the only U.S. government Website that links public state, territorial, and tribal sex offender registries from one national search site. Parents, employers, and other concerned residents can utilize the Website’s search tool to identify location information on sex offenders residing, working, and attending school not only in their own neighborhoods but in other nearby states and communities. In addition, the Website provides visitors with information about sexual abuse and how to protect themselves and loved ones from potential victimization.

NSOPW’s advanced search tool provides information about sex offenders through a number of search options:

Search by name nationally or with an individual Jurisdiction
Search by address (if provided by Jurisdiction)
Search by zip code
Search by county (if provided by Jurisdiction)
Search by city/town (if provided by Jurisdiction)

NSOPW presents the most up-to-date information as provided by each Jurisdiction.

Information is hosted by each Jurisdiction, not by NSOPW or the federal government. The search criteria available for searches are limited to what each individual Jurisdiction may provide. Search results should be verified by visiting the providing Jurisdiction’s Public Registry Website for further information and/or guidance.

Birthday parties are usually when kids rake in the loot. But Chase Branscum gave away all the gifts he received—all 500 of them. The generous-minded resident of Owasso, Okla., decided to turn his eighth-birthday celebration into a toy drive for Toys for Tots.

"I already have toys and other kids don't," Branscum told news station Fox23.

Of course it does.  The national chocolate federation must have done the study, but who cares?  It helps with PMS, AMS, DMS (Pre, After, and During) and all points in-between.  It even helps lessen the angst from in-laws during the holidays--so I am told.

Hiya, GE!!  ::DancingSantaMonkey1:: Glad you like it! I was excited about it too, and I've changed it up a bit for Waylon, because he wants to see it over and over every day! LOL!

I made it for my Grandson, he didn't say much about it, but his parents loved it.  Earned me enough points to see the baby several times a week.  Thanks, CBB, I owe ya!

I am keeping this avi on, it reminds me of my Grandparents home.  They had a light outside of their house similar to the lamppost you put on the avi before this one.  That and the red color here reminds me of them and I really need them this year. 

My Grandfather worked for Strawbridge's in town, in their art department as their designer, and did all their displays.  Come to think of it, maybe he was the whole department, I never saw anyone else there.  Each year, there was a group that was hired by Strawbridge's to go around and judge the houses of their employees, that were decorated for the holidays, and each year, he won a well-deserved first place.  He really went all out.  He and my uncle climbed all over the house and the roof tops decorating each surface with a different scene that was intricate and homemade.  Decorating doesn't seem the same without him. 

I remember going up to his floor at work when I met him for lunch, his department was the entire floor with a black elevator that had a gate that came across the front of the car.  It seemed like magic, people would suddenly appear through that gate during the day.  Bob Hope and Bing Crosby came to that store.  That was a different time, an age of glamor where you got dressed up then went in town and spent the day just buying a pair of gloves or stockings.  The salesperson gave you individual help and would carefully take out each item from it's box and show it to you one by one, taking their time, giving each customer his/her full attention. 

I remember my Grandfather bringing home a box of chocolates for my Grandmother.  Once a day, she would get out the chocolates and share them with me when I visited.  We never thought to eat more than one, we savored each bite.  There was other candy she kept on her coffee table for the kids, hard candy, M&Ms or Hershey's kisses.  My Grandfather would surprise her with perfume from town, too.  He was a wonderful gentleman and did everything so carefully, everything was so thoughtful, you always felt like his time with you was precious.  We savored every moment together as though life was a box of fine chocolates, meant to enjoy, each minute to be unwrapped carefully. 

Sorry to ramble, CBB, but I wanted you to know why, even though the other artwork you made for me is beautiful, this one still remains my avi.  It pulls on my heartstrings,  It's as though you looked into the special events in my life and put them into this picture.  Thank you for that, especially this year, when I lost my brother, we stayed together many times at my Grandparents' house and loved every minute.

Live camera of Santa's Reindeer carrel.  You can see Santa come feed his reindeer 3 times a day.  You can also send in your child's name to appear on Santa's Nice List that can be seen on a sign on the barn.  We've even watched Santa play with his dog.

Hiya, GE!!  ::DancingSantaMonkey1:: Glad you like it! I was excited about it too, and I've changed it up a bit for Waylon, because he wants to see it over and over every day! LOL!

I made it for my Grandson, he didn't say much about it, but his parents loved it.  Earned me enough points to see the baby several times a week.  Thanks, CBB, I owe ya!

I am keeping this avi on, it reminds me of my Grandparents home.  They had a light outside of their house similar to the lamppost you put on the avi before this one.  That and the red color here reminds me of them and I really need them this year. 

My Grandfather worked for Strawbridge's in town, in their art department as their designer, and did all their displays.  Come to think of it, maybe he was the whole department, I never saw anyone else there.  Each year, there was a group that was hired by Strawbridge's to go around and judge the houses of their employees, that were decorated for the holidays, and each year, he won a well-deserved first place.  He really went all out.  He and my uncle climbed all over the house and the roof tops decorating each surface with a different scene that was intricate and homemade.  Decorating doesn't seem the same without him. 

I remember going up to his floor at work when I met him for lunch, his department was the entire floor with a black elevator that had a gate that came across the front of the car.  It seemed like magic, people would suddenly appear through that gate during the day.  Bob Hope and Bing Crosby came to that store.  That was a different time, an age of glamor where you got dressed up then went in town and spent the day just buying a pair of gloves or stockings.  The salesperson gave you individual help and would carefully take out each item from it's box and show it to you one by one, taking their time, giving each customer his/her full attention. 

I remember my Grandfather bringing home a box of chocolates for my Grandmother.  Once a day, she would get out the chocolates and share them with me when I visited.  We never thought to eat more than one, we savored each bite.  There was other candy she kept on her coffee table for the kids, hard candy, M&Ms or Hershey's kisses.  My Grandfather would surprise her with perfume from town, too.  He was a wonderful gentleman and did everything so carefully, everything was so thoughtful, you always felt like his time with you was precious.  We savored every moment together as though life was a box of fine chocolates, meant to enjoy, each minute to be unwrapped carefully. 

Sorry to ramble, CBB, but I wanted you to know why, even though the other artwork you made for me is beautiful, this one still remains my avi.  It pulls on my heartstrings,  It's as though you looked into the special events in my life and put them into this picture.  Thank you for that, especially this year, when I lost my brother, we stayed together many times at my Grandparents' house and loved every minute.



Awww, Bearly? I can tell you have some very precious memories there, tucked safely in your heart. My heart and head are full of those "mind's eye videos" as well and I absolutely understand them being fresh this time of year. I'm glad that the avi adds to it, hon. Love Ya'!   ::MonkeyKiss::

What was really touching to me is when Robert Plant had tears in his eyes.  You could see how touched he was.

I don't know who that guitar player was but I thought he was really good.  :smt035

I haven't figured out who the guitarist is that performed the beautiful solo in "Stairway to Heaven" yet, but the drummer was Jason Bonham.

HEART - STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN in HD - The Kennedy Center Honors LED ZEPPELIN, 2012.
 ::snipping2::
On Dec. 26 the 2012 Kennedy Center Honors was aired on national television for the first time on CBS. During the event, which took place at the Kennedy Center Opera House, Ann Wilson and Nancy Wilson of Heart performed Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven" with Jason Bonham on drums.

 ::snipping2::

The performance of "Stairway to Heaven" began with Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart performing the song with a backing band, which included Jason Bonham on drums. He is the son of Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, who passed away in 1980. As the song progressed, back-up singers, a string section, and the Joyce Garrett Youth Choir came on stage to help perform "Stairway to Heaven".

The choir members and Jason Bonham were wearing bowler hats, which was a tribute to the band's late drummer John Bonham. Throughout the performance lead vocalist Robert Plant was noticeably moved, and towards the end of the song he had tears in his eyes.

Jason Bonham loved the fact that Led Zeppelin didn't know he'd be drumming on Stairway To Heaven at their Kennedy Center tribute night, hosted by US President Barack Obama. Bonham performed with Heart and an all-star band -- and the first Plant, Page and Jones knew of it was when they saw him walk on stage.
He said: "It was so incredible to see their faces, sat there next to the president. The guys knew who was playing -- but they didn't know I would be on drums. Their faces lit up, and the smiles and tears... It was fantastic. What a way to close the show!"

SAN JACINTO: Watch parade for Ramona Pageant entry
Posted on | December 28, 2012 | 0Comments

The Pasadena Tournament of Roses experience for some Ramona Pageant equestrians begins Saturday, Dec. 29, at the preview Equestfest at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center in Burbank.



Lori Brown Smith, on left, and her parents, Jerry Brown and Colleen Brown, representing the Ramona Pageant Spanish Riders, will lead the pageant’s entry in the Tournament of Roses parade in Pasadena on Tuesday, Jan. 1. CONTRIBUTED IMAGE

 ::snipping2::

One of the more fascinating tidbits I learned from Van Arsdale is that the equestrian unit has to spend the night on the shut-down Interstate 210 freeway
 ::snipping2::

it looks like the group will need headlamps to see what they’re doing in the middle of the night, friends willing to loan their motor homes for the trip and layers of warm clothes. It looks like it will be in the 40s overnight.

If you watch the Rose Parade on Tuesday keep an eye out for The Ramona entry.  Jerry, Coleen & Lori Brown are relatives of mine.  They always have beautiful costumes and their horses are exquisite.  They have been in the parade many times in the past and always are a treat to watch.

SAN JACINTO: Watch parade for Ramona Pageant entry
Posted on | December 28, 2012 | 0Comments

The Pasadena Tournament of Roses experience for some Ramona Pageant equestrians begins Saturday, Dec. 29, at the preview Equestfest at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center in Burbank.



Lori Brown Smith, on left, and her parents, Jerry Brown and Colleen Brown, representing the Ramona Pageant Spanish Riders, will lead the pageant’s entry in the Tournament of Roses parade in Pasadena on Tuesday, Jan. 1. CONTRIBUTED IMAGE

 ::snipping2::

One of the more fascinating tidbits I learned from Van Arsdale is that the equestrian unit has to spend the night on the shut-down Interstate 210 freeway
 ::snipping2::

it looks like the group will need headlamps to see what they’re doing in the middle of the night, friends willing to loan their motor homes for the trip and layers of warm clothes. It looks like it will be in the 40s overnight.



Wow, how cool!  I hope I can watch for them, but with DH home...he'll probably channel surf through the whole thing...drives me crazy, lol!

I finally sat down and watched War Horse tonight while DH played video games (thank goodness).  I'd been wanting to see it...great movie but so sad too!

Awwww.......... God love that little boy and Maggie. She's seventeen, but whenever it's her time, it will be in her warm home with owners who love her. I'm such a sucker for dogs; this story chokes me up.

Speaking of older dogs, today is KuBear's berfday!   ::MonkeyDance::

She's doing just fine, despite the stage 3 cancer, and is now 13 years old. Her hearing isn't quite what it used to be and she does climb stairs more slowly, but she remains fiesty and truly happy. She can still jump on my bed each night to take her place at my feet...... always facing the door. She still insists on jumping in the car with me whenever I allow it (and I do, whenever at all possible). She's a living miracle and I'm so very grateful. I've come to believe in feeding a dog fresh meat daily, and I do think the immunity booster pills have been a God send. I never thought, nor did the vets, that she would see this birthday, but she looks and acts younger than she did a couple of years ago. She has one gray whisker and that's it.   ::MonkeyHaHa:: Happy Birthday, KuBear!!

I agree CBB about the fresh meat......my Squeeky cat is over 23 yrs old and I have always fed him Cooked chicken.  He still has bursts of energy and tears around the house with the kittens.  I leave the electric blanket turned on so he is comfy taking his naps during the day.  We also feed Huggy & Jacko chicken supplemented with just one can of MightyDog between the two......Huggy's a tank but Jacko has kept his Jack Russell bod!

Reverse Multiple Sclerosis by eating the Paleo Diet, increasing vitamin D, and avoiding artificial food additives

Saturday, January 05, 2013 by: Katherine Leonard MS, NC

(NaturalNews) Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic, degenerative disease of the nerves in the brain and spine. The disease causes the body to attack an insulating substance around nerve cells called myelin. When the myelin is damaged, the function of the nerves deteriorate, resulting in muscle weakness, imbalance or loss of coordination, vision loss, and tremors. Research is now showing that the disease can be reversed by adopting a paleolithic diet (primarily meat, veggies, and nuts), optimizing vitamin D levels, and avoiding artificial ingredients, especially aspartame.

It is now understood that environmental factors, especially diet, play a large role in the development of this degenerative disease. The Paleo Diet, consisting of organic, whole foods from grass-fed meats, vegetables, fermented foods, and nuts, is packed with nutrients that protect the nervous and immune systems. The Paleo Diet is high in B vitamins, iodine, and omega-3 fatty acids (animal based EPA and DHA) that support mitochondrial function and myelin growth and repair.

 ::snipping2::

I encourage everyone to have their Vit D levels monitored especially if they have any type of auto immune disease, ask for Vit D hydroxy level testing, simple blood test.

Def in Vit D can also affect Thyroid.

There is a little known illness called Transverse Myelitis, an inflammation of the spinal cord. It can strike without any warning or it can be caused by 20 different things, including Flu shots, cat bites, MS. It has stricken all ages, children to adults, men women.

It happened to my dau March 26th 2011, she got up, made her bed was watching the news on TV, got a pain in her neck, the pain spread across her shoulder (she said it felt like a snake wrapped in the muscles) down her arms, then on down to her toes, within 1/2 hr she was paralyzed from neck down, the inflammation hit between C4 & C7.

She had the only treatments available, IV Steriods for 5 days, Iv IgG (iirc) for 3 days, then was transferred to Balto for Rehab. After 6 weeks she came home. Later this month they plan to put in a Baclofen pump.

For most, Drs never find out what caused it, as in Sherie's case, they tested her for everything and No known cause was the result. It just happened.

Many medical staff in Er's have never heard of it, as in Sherie's case, they had no idea what was wrong with her, thankfully we have a Neuro who saw her after 8 hrs, suspected TM, got on the internet, researched and  started the Steriod treatment. He remained in contact with John's Hopkins for her treatment until she was transferred

I am trying to spread awareness for this terrible condition, it is awful.

Al Unser's grandaughter Cody was stricken with it early in life. Cody has a foundation: http://www.cufsf.org/Codys_Story.aspx

FB has many photos of Victims of TM several albums.

https://www.facebook.com/TransverseMyelitis

https://www.facebook.com/TransverseMyelitis/photos_stream

For some, they regain use and for some they don't.

It happened to my dau March 26th 2011, she got up, made her bed was watching the news on TV, got a pain in her neck, the pain spread across her shoulder (she said it felt like a snake wrapped in the muscles) down her arms, then on down to her toes, within 1/2 hr she was paralyzed from neck down, the inflammation hit between C4 & C7.

She had the only treatments available, IV Steriods for 5 days, Iv IgG (iirc) for 3 days, then was transferred to Balto for Rehab. After 6 weeks she came home. Later this month they plan to put in a Baclofen pump.

For most, Drs never find out what caused it, as in Sherie's case, they tested her for everything and No known cause was the result. It just happened.

Many medical staff in Er's have never heard of it, as in Sherie's case, they had no idea what was wrong with her, thankfully we have a Neuro who saw her after 8 hrs, suspected TM, got on the internet, researched and  started the Steriod treatment. He remained in contact with John's Hopkins for her treatment until she was transferred

I am trying to spread awareness for this terrible condition, it is awful.

Al Unser's grandaughter Cody was stricken with it early in life. Cody has a foundation: http://www.cufsf.org/Codys_Story.aspx

FB has many photos of Victims of TM several albums.

OS Prayers for your daughter. Not surprising I have never heard of this. Thank God the Neuro Dr was on the ball and went looking for some answers. I hope she is recovering after her rehab and treatment. We take so many things for granted and forget what a miracle the body is. You and your daughter and family are in my prayers.

Please pray for my Mom.  She appears to be in heart failure due to sleep apnea.

 ::MonkeyAngel:: ::MonkeyAngel::

I have been telling her doctor for over a year and probably more than 2 she has sleep apnea.  This explains all the behavior issues she is having.  No one listened to me.

 ::MonkeyMad::



I'm sorry Bearly.  I'll add your Mom to my prayers.  

Thanks, Muffy!

 ::MonkeyAngel::



Thinking of you Bearly and praying for your mom. Hugs.

Thanks, they are moving her to telemetry.  Her blood pressure is going crazy.

http://www.naturalnews.com/038569_paleo_diet_multiple_sclerosis_healing.html

Reverse Multiple Sclerosis by eating the Paleo Diet, increasing vitamin D, and avoiding artificial food additives

Saturday, January 05, 2013 by: Katherine Leonard MS, NC

(NaturalNews) Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic, degenerative disease of the nerves in the brain and spine. The disease causes the body to attack an insulating substance around nerve cells called myelin. When the myelin is damaged, the function of the nerves deteriorate, resulting in muscle weakness, imbalance or loss of coordination, vision loss, and tremors. Research is now showing that the disease can be reversed by adopting a paleolithic diet (primarily meat, veggies, and nuts), optimizing vitamin D levels, and avoiding artificial ingredients, especially aspartame.

It is now understood that environmental factors, especially diet, play a large role in the development of this degenerative disease. The Paleo Diet, consisting of organic, whole foods from grass-fed meats, vegetables, fermented foods, and nuts, is packed with nutrients that protect the nervous and immune systems. The Paleo Diet is high in B vitamins, iodine, and omega-3 fatty acids (animal based EPA and DHA) that support mitochondrial function and myelin growth and repair.

 ::snipping2::

I encourage everyone to have their Vit D levels monitored especially if they have any type of auto immune disease, ask for Vit D hydroxy level testing, simple blood test.

Def in Vit D can also affect Thyroid.

Thanks for the prayers, Sherie was recovering some until last Oct, and I just read the IgG lasts 3 to 6 mths, maybe that is why her recovery stopped. She can use her thumb and forefinger on rt hand, nothing on left at all, she can take abt 10 steps on some days, she has so much spasticity

http://www.nationalmssociety.org/about-multiple-sclerosis/what-we-know-about-ms/symptoms/spasticity/index.aspxit

makes it difficult for her to move, but we are thankful for what she has regained.

she has a caregiver and loving family so we can keep her at home. Sherie was 45 when this happened, almost 2 yrs.

I found an article, will try to find it again, telling people to make copy and take to ER for Dr's explaining TM. The steroid treatment in early stage is most important.

Sherie says to make every minute count, walk, move, use hands and legs. Ya just never know.

Sherie has been on Baclofen and Lyricia since onset. Dr's are hoping with pump it will help with the spasticity, and they will be able to reduce dosage of both. She is at max dose. I have read about good results with the pump in GA. Her legs get like steel, they did a test run few months ago and it really made her legs moveable. She goes to surgeon tomorrow, should be within a week or so. Hopefully she will be able to get into PT and OT after it's in.

I forgot to mention, the day it happened, Dr Janjua (neuro) did spinal tap, and nothing showed up, however he went ahead with the Steroids, abt 7 days later, he did another tap and it showed up.

I have read abt patients going to ER with numbness in arms or legs and being sent home only to return a few days later paralyzed.

The key to treatment and recovery is Steroids.

They divide recovery in 1/3's, 1/3 never recover at all, 1/3 recover some, 1/3 recover almost completely. Sherie is in the middle of the 1/3 that recover some.

I am trying to find the article, can't seem to find it right now but I will keep looking.

Sherie has put the pump on hold for now, she is scared, we are trying to get as much information for her to help her with her decision, it is scary but she doesn't have any other choice right now. I will try to post from time to time.

I just hope everyone learns about this horrible disease, I read there are 1500 new cases each year in the US. With awareness will come funding for research. It is sad to see pictures of little children with TM and Dr's don't know what the heck caused it or the struggles some have trying to get a diagnosis because the Dr doesn't know, treatment is limited, it's just horrible.

I'm so sorry OS!  I will keep you all in my prayers.  It's been years ago so I don't know for sure, but I think this may be the same thing that someone I knew suffered from.  They moved shortly after she became ill to be near her family in Tennessee (so they could help take care of her) and over the years I've lost track of them.  But I do remember the onset being much like Sherie's.  She was in her early thirties iirc, and did regain some movement in her hands and arms before they moved but she was still in a wheelchair and needed a lot of assistance.  It was really sad...they were business owners and a very outgoing couple in the community with a young son.  I'm going to see if anyone I know is still in touch with them and see what I can find out.  If it is the same illness, I'm sure they've tried every available treatment.

Thanks Klaas.  I am trying to be a little more active lately.  I know I am putting on a few pounds so I am choosing to park further away from stores and walk further, walk up stairs instead of using elevators and I am using my tread mill also.  I am still amazed by how much better I feel.  I guess I never realized how much smoking had taken over my life.  Now, I still dream I smoke a cigarette.  I did last night.  When I left the courthouse today some guy was in his car with the windows down and was smoking like a freight train.  I had to linger just a little to smell the smoke---it had been so long since I smelled it.  But I know enough that if I touch one cigarette then it is over.

I have a medical question and didnt know where to turn. I thought I would try the Monkeys in hopes someone out there can calm me down. I didn't see a subject in the medical thread so I'm asking here. I hope that is ok. My neurologist ordered an MRI withOUT contrast. (Long story short I've been seeing things that aren't there, like a flock of grey birds in the sky). Well half way through the MRI they pulled me out and added the dye. Is there a reason to be concerned that the test was ordered without dye but the dye was used anyway? I greatly appreciate any help anyone can offer. I wasn't very worried for the test until that happened. Thanks!

RoxiBalboa Here is a link that is straightforward and to the point. About the differences of the two kinds of MRI's with and without contrast. I would say they wanted to make sure they got the best imagine. Hope this helps. That way you wouldn't have to go back and take another one.

hi Roxi ::HelloKitty::

I really can't answer your question but I had both tests run a couple of years ago.  But I knew ahead of time they would do both.

Seems to me a doctor would have had to order the dye test? I don't see the MRI people doing it without an order?

When will you get results from the tests and you can ask them at that time?  Take care - I'm sure there is a smart monkey out there who can help better than me - Cadillac

Our weather is just plain crazy for this time of year.  We have broken an all time high temps (70 degrees) two days in a roll.  We just broke a record for the most rainfall in a 24 hour period (4 inches rain and flooding).  Now we are under a Winter Storm Warning with ice and sleet up to 1/4 - 1/2".  I can take snow o.k. but ice and sleet is another story.  Oh well, I have my new energy efficient wood burning stove that heats the entire house and I can also cook on top of it.  No doubt it will come in handy if the power goes out.  Last ice storm we were without power for a full week.  I just hope it doesn't break my trees especially the bradford pear in the front yard because it will land on our new roof!  ::HelloKitty::   ::crymonkey2::

I am trying to spread awareness for this terrible condition, it is awful.

Al Unser's grandaughter Cody was stricken with it early in life. Cody has a foundation: http://www.cufsf.org/Codys_Story.aspx

FB has many photos of Victims of TM several albums.

For some, they regain use and for some they don't.

Thank you,

OS





I am so sorry OS.  My Mom was taken off Baclofen because a doctor told her it affected memory.  I will try to check to see if I can find this.



Sherie has been on Baclofen and Lyricia since onset. Dr's are hoping with pump it will help with the spasticity, and they will be able to reduce dosage of both. She is at max dose. I have read about good results with the pump in GA. Her legs get like steel, they did a test run few months ago and it really made her legs moveable. She goes to surgeon tomorrow, should be within a week or so. Hopefully she will be able to get into PT and OT after it's in.

OS

Please tell her I wish her well and am sending up prayers for her.

Eight weeks smoke free.   ::MonkeyCheer4:: ::piggy::

This is weird weather today----70 degrees, broke an all-time record today.  It was beautiful outside.  I had to go to the courthouse today.  I parked on the square and walked all the way to the courthouse. It was just so beautiful out I couldn't resist it.  Had to go to the 3rd floor of the courthouse so I walked up 3 flights of stairs.  I haven't been able to do that in some time without getting out of breath.   ::MonkeyDance:: ::MonkeyDance::

Our weather is just plain crazy for this time of year.  We have broken an all time high temps (70 degrees) two days in a roll.  We just broke a record for the most rainfall in a 24 hour period (4 inches rain and flooding).  Now we are under a Winter Storm Warning with ice and sleet up to 1/4 - 1/2".  I can take snow o.k. but ice and sleet is another story.  Oh well, I have my new energy efficient wood burning stove that heats the entire house and I can also cook on top of it.  No doubt it will come in handy if the power goes out.  Last ice storm we were without power for a full week.  I just hope it doesn't break my trees especially the bradford pear in the front yard because it will land on our new roof!  ::HelloKitty::   ::crymonkey2::

I hope the storm goes away and leaves without any damage.

I would imagine that Blue Moon is prepping for snow right now! I know I am! Michael's in Oak Ridge having shoulder surgery and his wife will be driving him back this afternoon, so I'm on pins and needles about that. Waylon's teacher just called to say daycare will be letting out early, so I'll need to pick him up early, and the sump pump under Mom's house has stopped working so I'm trying to find a plumber who is willing to get under there before the wood floors warp. John's in Duffield trying to see the entire day's patients this morning before the snow comes this afternoon and I just want all my chickens to come home to roost so I know everybody's safe and sound. ::MonkeyEek::

WHY did I get up this morning?   ::MonkeyTongue::

The flooding between Duffield and Kingsport is really bad. Clinch River is expected to crest 6 feet above flood stage. I worry about Clinchport every time it rains like this. You guys from the "Big Cities" would get a kick over the little towns around the clinic. In 2010, the population of Clinchport was 70, and in 1977 a flood literally swallowed it all. The clinic swells with people when there's weather like this. They need someplace to go, and we just put on more coffee and break out the checker boards!  ::MonkeyHaHa::

CBB, we were spared this time.  Our temps stayed at the border line of 32* and we had very little ice.  The flooding was just awful.  I drove over to the creek just a couple miles from us and it had filled the creek bottoms and was almost over the twin bridges.

I am just reading about the mud slide on the road (441?) going over the mountain into Cherakee, NC.  The pictures are awesome.

Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg are getting flooding really bad also.

I see where your area is getting it too.  I have been through Duffield and Clinchport several times.  The creeks/rivers hug those little roads.  I can see where it would flood really easy.

We have sunshine today.  ::piggy::

Keep your eyes out for flooding and hopefully the snow fall will not be too bad for your area.

Hi Blue Moon and GE!   ::MonkeyDance::

I don't think I have EVER seen it snow and ice any harder than it has in the last few hours. It has pretty much stopped now but in short order, we have 5 inches on the ground and the way it came made conditions just awful! There was a 50 car pile up on Kingsport's by-pass. The lady who works the lab at the clinic left early, around 1:00, and had a wreck. Her back is hurt, but I think she'll be OK. 2 other staff will probably spend the night at the clinic, because they both have to go over a mountain to get home and the road has been closed. I stopped by the grocery on the way to get Waylon and when I went in, it was raining. I was in there maybe 15 minutes, and couldn't believe it when I left! The parking lot was icy and the rain had changed to tiny ice pellets. That finally gave way to snow, but I think Waylon was the only one that had the right attitude......... he was loving it!   ::MonkeyHaHa::

Michael's home...... finally! The shoulder injury turned out to be really bad and a 2 hour drive turned into a 5 hour ordeal, but he's home safely and that's all that counts.

John's home safely too, even though he fell on the driveway getting out of the car. He's OK. Shew! All my chickies are home!  This Mama Hen is just going to get comfy and be grateful!  ::MonkeyWink::

Good!  I am so glad everyone is safely in their homes.   ::MonkeyCheer4:: ::MonkeyCheer4::

50 car pileup?  That sounds like us around our area.  Let it snow, sleet, even rain and the "crazies" all come out.  They act like they have never driven in it before!

I hate that the Newfound Gap road will be closed for quite a while because of the land slide.  They said a park ranger had just driven over the area when he looked back and the road disappeared behind him.  He was very lucky.  They had a rock slide on the Alcoa highway.  I wonder how I-75 over the Cumberland mountain (at Jellico) is?  It is always a problem spot.

Be safe, stay in, maybe tomorrow will be better.  I think it is suppose to warm up for the next few days then a bitter cold front is coming in the 1st of next week-no snow just bitter cold.

CBB, another thing, I bet Waylon really did love the snow and ice.  Little boys always like being out in bad weather.  They want to "slide around" in the parking lots.  My son used to tell his daddy to go fast in a parking lot and then put on the brakes really hard to see how far we would slide.  I hated it but he loved it!  ::MonkeyDance::

 ::MonkeyWeight::



Hiya, Bearly! Like he's done all his injuries....... playing sports.  ::MonkeyNoNo:: This time, he's done. He has to be. There was no repair possible to the shoulder labrum. It was so shredded that it had to just be removed  and they screwed his bicep muscle into the shoulder socket, which will never stabilize it like the labrum did. They hadn't expected to find such a mess. His rotator cuff had a huge tear in it as well, and there was also a large, hooked bone spur that was digging into the nerves, so they cut that off. The surgeon flat out told him that if he blew the repair, it can't be fixed and it would be easy to blow it. He's in a souped up, hard sling that he must wear for 3 weeks and can't lift anything heavier than a coke can for 10 weeks. After that, it's physical therapy for 6 months and despite all of that, the prognosis is probably joint replacement in the future, which will have limited success without the labrum. This is his right arm and he's right handed. Either he stops playing, and stops now, or I'm disowning him. I told him I would be relentless about anyone trying to do him bodily harm....... and that includes HIM!  ::MonkeyCool::

Thanks, all, for asking about him!   ::MonkeyKiss::

Very cool CBB!  Do you know some of them?

It's hard to live here and be raised here without knowing some of them, Klaas! I've taught a good 25% of them in Sunday School, and know a lot of their families. I went to school with some of their parents. The band has always been really good and are usually in Macy's parade. It's a big high school.  There were apprx. 700 students when I went there, 1,500 when Michael was there and today there are 1,900 enrolled students. The school has always ranked well academically on national scores, has a great band and a sports program that won't quit. Several football players have gone on to play in the NFL. There's a lot of community support for the high school. The stadium is pretty impressive for a high school and games are always sold out, everybody buys fruit from the band so they can travel.

Here's a pic of Dobyns Bennett. From the looks of the cars and the absence of grown trees, it's an old one, but it's the best I could find showing most of the structure. The stadium is out of the frame, as are the tennis courts. There's also property across the street running behind the school, where the band practices. Waylon goes to day care directly across from the front of the school.   ::MonkeyWink::

Hi Muffy, Mere, and Klaas!  ::piggy::

It's cold here too, Mere; brrrrrr...... stay warm!

I was shocked at the numbers for DB when Michael started there, but it's not a straight comparison with the population to when I attended. DB only had 10th through 12th grades in my day, and now they include 9th grade as well. It was the only high school in the city in my day, and now, even though it's the largest, is just one of four high schools in the city system.

3,000 is a LOT of kids at one school, Klaas, regardless of where it is!  ::MonkeyEek::

It's a sad testament to the times, but I have to admit that when discussion of school security comes up, I always think about the sprawling nature of DB. It's quite a hike from one end to the other of the building and much of it has three stories. It was built in the late 60's and the thought that security would ever be an issue, just wasn't in anyone's mind.

I told him I would be relentless about anyone trying to do him bodily harm....... and that includes HIM!  ::MonkeyCool::

Good Morning....and Hi to everyone.....want Blue Moon and CBB to know that we are under
and "ice storm warning" which I know you know unless you are still asleep.  :smt054   Do be careful as I hear sirens every so often....heading toward I-75. 

I certainly have learned to live in and enjoy all four seasons.....although I thought we might
miss this winter.  Will be moving south sometime this year....more like one and a half seasons, but will be close to family.

Hugs....

Hi Mere.  We have about a .25" of pure ice.  It is starting to pass us, you should see it real soon.  We are under an ice storm warning until about 1pm today.  Ice is hanging off the tree branches this morning.  They had to close I-65 just 30 miles north of us and also the Natcher Parkway just down the road from me, they said both lanes were covered with wrecked vehicles.  I know they put down salt brine yesterday on the interstate and also the main roads here but it didn't help the interstates.  Be careful today.  At least by next Tuesday we should be having thunderstorms and temps in the 60's.  You just never know what the weather will be from day to day.

Mere, I hate to hear you are leaving our great state but don't blame you if it puts you near your family.

Hi Mere.  We have about a .25" of pure ice.  It is starting to pass us, you should see it real soon.  We are under an ice storm warning until about 1pm today.  Ice is hanging off the tree branches this morning.  They had to close I-65 just 30 miles north of us and also the Natcher Parkway just down the road from me, they said both lanes were covered with wrecked vehicles.  I know they put down salt brine yesterday on the interstate and also the main roads here but it didn't help the interstates.  Be careful today.  At least by next Tuesday we should be having thunderstorms and temps in the 60's.  You just never know what the weather will be from day to day.

Mere, I hate to hear you are leaving our great state but don't blame you if it puts you near your family.

 ::HelloKitty:: ::HelloKitty::

Told you Mere, it's Tuesday, today the high was about 70*, and we are under a tornado watch until 4:00am.  Guess I will spend the next few hours waiting for this.  I really really hate storms when it is dark outside.  It is very hard to sleep knowing bad storms are lurking outside.

Today is my anniversary-36 years.  Wow, that's a long long time.

I am in my 11th week without a cigarette.  It is just amazing.  Quitting smoking has caused weight gain.  I am trying to walk it off every day but I can see it will be a long, slow process.  I hear the new health care law will penalize you for smoking and charge you at least $5000 more a year for your insurance.  They are also saying they will penalize you for being fat! Hell, I can't win for losing.  I quit smoking and I think I beat the system.  Now I am gaining weight from quitting smoking and I find out I will get penalized for that also.

I always used the excuse that I'd gain too much weight if I quit smoking UNTIL respiratory failure nearly killed me  ::MonkeyCool::  Yes, I did gain weight after quitting but I slowly but surely took it off.  Took about 3 years after quitting to get back to where I should be.  ::MonkeyKiss::

Yeah, I know you are right.  I quit because they found a spot on my lung.  Turns out it is what they call a "granuloma" and it is very common to people in the Ohio Valley area of the country.  It is caused by the soil and birds.  But I always said it would take a life-threatening scare for me to quit smoking.  3 years is a long time to get the weight under control.  I am walking at least a mile a day and trying to watch what I eat but eating is a hard thing to cut down on.  I guess the craving for a cigarette is being replaced with food.  Oh well, I still am very glad I quit.  It is something I never thought I would do.  I conquered that so I guess I will have to find a way to conquer the weight gain also.

Hope others in the path of this storm are o.k. today.  I was up this morning at 1:30am until 4:00am.  It was extremely rough.  Appears to have had tornadoes all around us or just straight-line winds with speeds up to 70mph.  The temperature during the storms this morning was 72*.  That is just unheard of unless it is in the middle of summer.

One of the reasons it hit me in the heart is that my youngest still has his horses here, and his dog...his pets that we take care of since he moved out during college; and now he may be moving even further away for law school.  He comes over and rolls the hay in for them sometimes, but just doesn't take time with them to ride much right now and I know how much they must miss him!

Mere you are getting more snow than us.  The weather has been crazy here too.  First it is warm and then last week it was in the teens.  When I say warm I mean 50's and that's very comfortable for us New Yorkers  ::MonkeyCool::  The other night we had high winds and a lot of rain.  If it was a bit  colder we would have been buried in snow.

You can get as attached to horses as you can a dog or cat.  We grew up with dogs but we always had horses.  My father always tried to keep a pony around for us younger kids to ride.  We did ride the ponies but the big horses were where it was at.  He trained the horses for the local horse shows here and the surrounding counties.  Once we had got hold of the big horses and rode them and had taken care of them (spoiled them) he would have to trade them and start over training a new horse because he said we ruined it.  We loved the horse shows.  The horses were so beautiful.

I absolutely love this commercial.....have watched it over and over....
Thanks for bringing it here.... :smt054

Blue Moon and CBB......22 and real snow flakes...!!!  This will be my last winter, so I am hoping for enough snow to take pictures.

Hey Mere, I do believe you and CBB will be getting the snow this time and not us.  IF we get any at all it is only suppose to be around 1/2". I have family in northeastern part of the state and they are suppose to get quite a bit (6" or better).

I hope you get to see snow again before you leave Kentucky.  I am glad you will be near your family but I do believe you will really miss Kentucky and the area you live in.  It is beautiful over there.

Post pictures if you get snow!!!!

2013 Budweiser Super Bowl Ad — The Clydesdales: "Brotherhood"

http://www.youtube.com/v/o2prAccclXs?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0

I just love this.  The clydesdales are such graceful animals.  I was raised with horses.  We always had our dogs but we also always had horses also.  They were our pets that we rode, fed and took care of until---------------My father traded it for another horse.  I could never understand why he always traded horses and what he got out of it.  All we knew was there goes another pet!  My father would tell us we were ruining a perfect horse and we made it hard on him to show the horse in horseshows.

I do believe this is the best Budweiser commercial I have seen yet!   ::piggy::

I agree BlueMoon, best one yet!   ::monkeywine2::

One of the reasons it hit me in the heart is that my youngest still has his horses here, and his dog...his pets that we take care of since he moved out during college; and now he may be moving even further away for law school.  He comes over and rolls the hay in for them sometimes, but just doesn't take time with them to ride much right now and I know how much they must miss him!

His JR still just goes crazy when she sees him, she can hear his truck before anyone and I can always tell by her reaction that HE'S here!

I know that's true.  DH has mentioned selling the horses a few times, especially when hay prices were ridiculous during the drought...I told him no way!  Even though I'm not the one that rides them I love them, and couldn't even imagine selling them.

Good Morning....and Hi to everyone.....want Blue Moon and CBB to know that we are under
and "ice storm warning" which I know you know unless you are still asleep.  :smt054   Do be careful as I hear sirens every so often....heading toward I-75. 

I certainly have learned to live in and enjoy all four seasons.....although I thought we might
miss this winter.  Will be moving south sometime this year....more like one and a half seasons, but will be close to family.

Hugs....

Hi Mere.  We have about a .25" of pure ice.  It is starting to pass us, you should see it real soon.  We are under an ice storm warning until about 1pm today.  Ice is hanging off the tree branches this morning.  They had to close I-65 just 30 miles north of us and also the Natcher Parkway just down the road from me, they said both lanes were covered with wrecked vehicles.  I know they put down salt brine yesterday on the interstate and also the main roads here but it didn't help the interstates.  Be careful today.  At least by next Tuesday we should be having thunderstorms and temps in the 60's.  You just never know what the weather will be from day to day.

Mere, I hate to hear you are leaving our great state but don't blame you if it puts you near your family.

 ::HelloKitty:: ::HelloKitty::

Told you Mere, it's Tuesday, today the high was about 70*, and we are under a tornado watch until 4:00am.  Guess I will spend the next few hours waiting for this.  I really really hate storms when it is dark outside.  It is very hard to sleep knowing bad storms are lurking outside.

Today is my anniversary-36 years.  Wow, that's a long long time.

I am in my 11th week without a cigarette.  It is just amazing.  Quitting smoking has caused weight gain.  I am trying to walk it off every day but I can see it will be a long, slow process.  I hear the new health care law will penalize you for smoking and charge you at least $5000 more a year for your insurance.  They are also saying they will penalize you for being fat! Hell, I can't win for losing.  I quit smoking and I think I beat the system.  Now I am gaining weight from quitting smoking and I find out I will get penalized for that also.

 ::MonkeyCool::

Amazing job on tossing the butts, Blue Moon.  I am not sure about the new law, but I would do what makes you feel better until the time comes when we do know about the new law and then do whatever makes you feel better (yes, I know I said the same thing).

About:
This is Landrey Paige, she is a true Angel among us. She has been recently diagnosed with a monster called Leukodystrophy. This is a page to celebrate her.

Description:
This is Landrey Paige, she is a true Angel among us. Leukodystrophy refers to progressive degeneration of the white matter of the brain due to imperfect growth or development of the myelin sheath, the fatty covering that acts as an insulator around nerve fiber. Myelin, which lends its color to the white matter of the brain, is a complex substance made up of at least ten different chemicals. The leukodystrophies are a group of disorders that are caused by genetic defects in how myelin produces or metabolizes these chemicals. Each of the leukodystrophies is the result of a defect in the gene that controls one (and only one) of the chemicals. The most common symptom of a leukodystrophy disease is a gradual decline in an infant or child who previously appeared well. Progressive loss may appear in body tone, movements, gait, speech, ability to eat, vision, hearing, and behavior. There is often a slowdown in mental and physical development. This is a personal blog and support page that can also bring awareness to this rare genetic disease.


Please visit this site (I think you have to have Facebook to log in).  This is my great-great niece. She is such a beautiful little girl and always smiling.  It is just so tragic that she is faced with this.  There does not appear to be any cure and her life expectancy is limited.

Thank you for the information, Blue. 

What a horrific thing to happen to a loved one, especially a child.  I cannot tell you how sorry I am to hear that your great-great-niece has this dystrophy (you don't look old enough to be a great-great-aunt).  She will be in our prayers.  Genetic makes things seem so hopeless, but with God and prayer, there is always hope.  Asking for a miracle.

How can you not celebrate this beautiful life?  Her lovely spirit shines through, even in a small black and white picture.  Looking at her should make it feel like Christmas every day.  Instead it must feel like being in a snowball fight where your opponent fills his snowballs with rocks and you take them right in the gut.

Thanks, Blue Moon! I clicked the link and hit "like". While I was there I read abut this beautiful little girl and looked at additional pictures. She's just beautiful. She and her family are in my prayers.

Yes, CBB, she is just a beautiful and happy child.  Now, what was I complaining about?  Puts things into perspective, if she can put a smile on her face, then so can the rest of us!

...no ifs ands or abuts!  Sorry, CBB, I just couldn't resist  =^..^=   /

About:
This is Landrey Paige, she is a true Angel among us. She has been recently diagnosed with a monster called Leukodystrophy. This is a page to celebrate her.

Description:
This is Landrey Paige, she is a true Angel among us. Leukodystrophy refers to progressive degeneration of the white matter of the brain due to imperfect growth or development of the myelin sheath, the fatty covering that acts as an insulator around nerve fiber. Myelin, which lends its color to the white matter of the brain, is a complex substance made up of at least ten different chemicals. The leukodystrophies are a group of disorders that are caused by genetic defects in how myelin produces or metabolizes these chemicals. Each of the leukodystrophies is the result of a defect in the gene that controls one (and only one) of the chemicals. The most common symptom of a leukodystrophy disease is a gradual decline in an infant or child who previously appeared well. Progressive loss may appear in body tone, movements, gait, speech, ability to eat, vision, hearing, and behavior. There is often a slowdown in mental and physical development. This is a personal blog and support page that can also bring awareness to this rare genetic disease.


Please visit this site (I think you have to log onto Facebook).  This is my great-great niece. She is such a beautiful little girl and always smiling.  It is just so tragic that she is faced with this.  There does not appear to be any cure and her life expectancy is limited.

Thanks Bearly. It is just horrible for her to have this disease.  It took 4 years of her life to find out what was wrong with her.  My sister noticed it very early on when she was just a baby.  She has been to doctors at Vanderbilt almost since she was born and they could not tell what was wrong with her.  They took her to an eye doctor a few months ago because her eyes were bouncing around and he is the one who diagnosed her with this disease.  Vanderbilt took it from there but there is not a thing they can do for her even if it was caught early on.  She will get progressively worse as time goes on and they only give her 1-3 years life expectancy at this point.  No cure at all.  I cry every time I look at her face.  She is so innocent and beautiful.  The doctors and nurses have told her family to do this website and honor her life as a way for them to cope with what is ahead of them.  They also want word to get out on this disease to help them in the future.

Thank you for the information, Blue.  

What a horrific thing to happen to a loved one, especially a child.  I cannot tell you how sorry I am to hear that your great-great-niece has this dystrophy (you don't look old enough to be a great-great-aunt).  She will be in our prayers.  Genetic makes things seem so hopeless, but with God and prayer, there is always hope.  Asking for a miracle.

For all the monkeys about to experience a blizzard in the Northeast, I'm hoping those beautiful Clydesdales can bring a little smile, as well as best wishes for comfort and safety, during the storm!!

Oh, those teen-agers!

When this one was finished, there were other choices to watch.  There was one that said Clydesdale 2011 and if you click on it, it shows a child being lifted up to ride in the carriage, who had the words Make-a-Wish on the back of his shirt.  It made me teary.

I've always loved these commercial's and this one is sooooooo sweet! 

 ::MonkeyHeart::

http://youtu.be/o2prAccclXs

2013 Budweiser Super Bowl Ad — The Clydesdales: "Brotherhood"

http://www.youtube.com/v/o2prAccclXs?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0

I just love this.  The clydesdales are such graceful animals.  I was raised with horses.  We always had our dogs but we also always had horses also.  They were our pets that we rode, fed and took care of until---------------My father traded it for another horse.  I could never understand why he always traded horses and what he got out of it.  All we knew was there goes another pet!  My father would tell us we were ruining a perfect horse and we made it hard on him to show the horse in horseshows.

I do believe this is the best Budweiser commercial I have seen yet!   ::piggy::

I agree BlueMoon, best one yet!   ::monkeywine2::

One of the reasons it hit me in the heart is that my youngest still has his horses here, and his dog...his pets that we take care of since he moved out during college; and now he may be moving even further away for law school.  He comes over and rolls the hay in for them sometimes, but just doesn't take time with them to ride much right now and I know how much they must miss him!

His JR still just goes crazy when she sees him, she can hear his truck before anyone and I can always tell by her reaction that HE'S here!
   ::dogwag::   

It's a shame he left such a hole where he once was, care to adopt, say...uh...your Sister!

I have passed it on.

I cannot imagine how you feel, I get a jolt in my gut just looking at her picture.  If there is anything to be thankful for, it is for finding the right diagnosis, I cannot imagine how terrible it is having the diagnosis, but to have found out any later than this would be more than cruel.  I hope she can experience happiness during this time.  Have her parents contacted Make-a-Wish Foundation so they can have some memories they may not be able to have any other way?

If there is anything I can do to help her family through this, please let me know.

There was some snow on the top of the mountain (we were, at the top of the mountain, at 5500 feet.  It was so high that the clouds covered everything with ice.  It was beautiful.

The road is down to one lane.  It makes you wonder when the rest of the roadway will slide down the mountain.

She is a "ham" and very photogenic.  Smart as a whip and very tall for her age but barely talks.  I've only heard her say one word.."up" that's it.  I imagine one of these days she'll surprise us and and wake up reciting Shakespeare  ::MonkeyHaHa::

 ::HelloKitty::

I thought of you when we got of the Interstate.  We always stop and fill up gas at the station right off the interstate that has a McDonald's attached to it.  I have to have my coke from there to get me home!  You would have loved the Cherahala Skyway.  It was not suppose to be as bad as the "Tale of the Dragon" but it was almost as bad.  I got car sick winding around those corners.  We had to drive around to North Carolina by I40 because the land slide at Newfound Gap closed the road.  It was at least 100 miles out of the way.  The winding mountainous roads got to me about half way there.  Once we were on the skyway it just got worse.  We were at 5500 ft. up the mountain when we came upon the slide area and that small portion really scared me.  It was down to one lane but you had to wonder if the rest of the road would give way.  Then we came upon a bridge built between two mountain peaks and I got really dizzy crossing that.  I have bad fears of heights and this skyway was not the best place for someone like me to be.  You need to see these things before you leave this part of the country.  You will miss those mountains!

We rain into snow at Jellico mountain coming home.  One side of the mountain had snow, the other side didn't.

Cool Pictures Blue Moon. That reminds me of when hubs & I were driving the back roads in Utah. ::MonkeyHaHa:: Almost all roads in Utah are back roads. We were going to help brother move and it was winter time snow all over. The road turned east and went up a hill and wham all the trees were cover in ice like our picture. It was really pretty. But I didn't think about taking a picture.  ::MonkeyNoNo::  I was more like are we there yet. I felt we had been driving for ever.  ::MonkeyHaHa::

Blue Moon.....I have been here for over an hour looking at the Cherahala Skyway.  Wow...not a great place for someone who gets carsick or is afraid of heights.  Then I started thinking of the first time I drove the Blue Ridge Parkway.  I was with friends who were also from the flatlands of Louisiana, and one person got sort of hysterical at the heights.  In the earlier days, parts of the parkway did not have
anything to stop you from flying off the edge...lol....and this girl sat on the floor of the back of the car and was shaking from fear.  No one knew what to do.  We drove up to Little Switzerland and, although the plan was to stay the night there, she would not get out of the car.

Since that time I have driven almost all of the States.  My kids lived in Colorado for some time, and I have grown to love the mountains.  It will be difficult to settle back on flat land again....but I am a gypsy and still love car trips.

This is the link I was looking at for the Parkway....

And I know the very gas station, by the way....I enjoy eating nearby.  Thanks for the info on your trip.
It looks breathtaking.... ::HelloKitty::

Thank You texasmom.   ::MonkeyAngel::

Green Eyes, I will say a prayer for relief from that Vacancy.  ::MonkeyAngel::

Thank You  so much seahorse ::MonkeyAngel:: They are doing better.

Greeneyes,

Glad to hear they are doing better.

I put some dry dog food, out for the birds...a cat, was eating it. ::MonkeyEek::

I also dampened, some of my dog treats, and put them out for the birds.

It will be snowy for the next couple days.

Seahorse, if you can give the birds water, that would help them so much.  I don't have a fancy deicer or heated bird baths, but I do go out even if it's icy or snows and put water out again.  The article below is from a pond supply company, but it has some basic information. 

http://www.ponddoc.com/WhatsUpDoc/WildBirds/WBirdWinterNecessity.htm
Wild Birds #1 Winter Necessity — Water
 ::snipping2::
A wild bird uses water for drinking and maintaining his feathers. During winter it’s even more important that he has water to bathe in. His feathers must be maintained in prime condition to keep him warm, otherwise his body will be poorly insulated and he will suffer from wasted energy.

It’s sad to watch a wild bird eating snow as a source for water during winter when one know the facts. A wild bird uses twelve times more of his energy to melt snow and ice than to bring it up to body temperature from the freezing point.

A shallow stream that stays running during freezes is a god-send to a wild bird and other wild creatures. Void of the luxury of an unfrozen stream one should keep a bird bath free of ice during winter at all times. A cement bird bath that cracks if it freezes needn’t be sacrificed. An overturned trash can lid will work and so will catch basins to large plastic planters. ::snipping2::

Hello everyone.  I am looking for a thread for Jennifer Ramsaran.  She would be in the missing found deceased category if she there is one.  Her husband is not a POI or suspect but he was the last one to see her and has had some suspicious statements, actions, etc.  There is some stuff heating up w a person from a missing persons organization siding with him and not being objective at this time.  Anyway, I wondered if there is a thread here, if there is I cannot find it. 

She went missing December 11, her van and phone were found, phone was found by her husband incidentally, but her body was not found until a week to ten days ago.  Naked and in a snowbank but they haven't released a cause of death or ruled it a homicide.

Thanks for any help you can give me.  I think it definitely needs to be sleuthed.

I set my clock, Muffy, but I don't like the new time!!  ::MonkeyNoNo::

I relate to your relief to see daylight after a night of storms! Today was really warm and the daffodils are coming out. I couldn't help but think of the Spring storms from a couple of years ago as I was taking in the sunshine. Maybe it's age, but I'm really afraid of them now! I used to think the mountains pretty much protected us from most bad weather related things, but there was way too much damage done to count on that anymore! Glad you made it through the night safe and sound, Miss Bee!

Hope everyone had a great week-end!!  ::MonkeyHeart::

I am with you CBB, I hate this changing the clocks back and forth.  I don't sleep as good as I should and this time of the year makes it worse.  Also agree about the storms.  They are different now then back in "the day" of growing up.  I guess I never thought we could have tornadoes around here but the past several years have changed my mind on that.

Mere, I know you will miss the mountains.  They are just magnificent!  I have always loved them.  Guess I take after my mother.  How odd it was when I started my genealogy research to find my family in the Shenandoah mountains of Virginia and to have found them again in the Great Smoky mountains.  My husband is a "beach" person, I am a "mountain" person.  We compromise by doing the ocean in the summer months and doing the mountains in the spring and fall months.

Muffy, hope you survived the storms.  Storms used to not bother me too much but I guess as I get older they really scare me more.  Springtime storms are the worst and we have that to look forward to until at least the end of May.

Hope all have a great week!  I am off to the mall to do some walking.  Weight problems still bad.  I know everyone says it will level off at some point, Just how long does it take to level off?  Oh well, 4 months smoke free!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I hope it was worth it!

Thank-you for refreshing my mind:)


I have a How to Attract Birds by Ortho Books.  A hanging ceramic water container with chains is pictured, I like that idea, too.

I was pleasantly, surprised, when I saw a bird drink out of my neighbors dogs water bowl.
The bowl was either metal or the usual stainless steel type.

I did put a tin dish out, and you know those crazy squirrels, :) They like to drink and tipped it over.  I had a pile of my dog's dry dog food, as a weight, but I guess the Squirrels prob ate the food and tipped it over. I did soak the dog food, before, I put it out. You would be suprised, who eats soaked dog biscuits and soaked dry food.  A Hawk, likes to munch, to my surprise on the biscuits.

Thank-you, again. I am going to take out a bottle of water and fill up the tin, until, I get something more sensible.

A Blue Jay dipped a piece of bread into the water.  I picked up a big bag of cornmeal suffering from Aldi's, manager special, and soaked the crude crumbs, in water, too, before I put it out.

I understand the birds do not like herb stuffing, I do! ::MonkeyHaHa::

There was some snow on the top of the mountain (we were, at the top of the mountain, at 5500 feet.  It was so high that the clouds covered everything with ice.  It was beautiful.

Thanks, Muffers, I am going to stop emptying all the water that collects everywhere during the winter.  I was always afraid a little animal was going to fall in the upside down trashcan lids and drown.

I am so glad you and Mere are around to take care of all the little birds for us.

I was listening to the radio and they were talking about penguins and it was fascinating.  We think of them as being animals that live mostly in the cold.  I believe they said 80% of them live in warmer climates.  They also said their feathers are packed so densely, that their bodies don't get wet.  It was about 700 per square inch.  You think you know something about an animal and really, you just touched the surface.  I think the people were from Florida and were talking about having the largest penguin exhibit.
