Thank you so much Texasmom for responding...

Many of you have no idea how special and important you were to me in a very difficult time in my life. I was..and still am reserved and quiet. Coming here made me put my problems in perspective. I want you all to know I still think of you often and hope I can stop by more often.  "teddybear2::

It rained really hard here for a while early yesterday morning, in fact, I didn't go to work. Worked today instead of yesterday.  I have about a 30 minute freeway drive early in the morning and wasn't about to risk it in the rain.  Other than that, no problems here, just a lot of rain and wind for a while.  Big rain and wind didn't last long.  I'm sure IBE is fine, I don't think she's in any of the evacuation or mud slide areas.

Nice to get some rain!  It's beautiful today, cool and crisp with a few clouds lingering.  ::MonkeyCool:: ::DancingSantaMonkey1::

Hi folks.....this is a busy time here and I bet for everyone else.

Bella is in obedience classes, decorations are still going up, company arrives on Friday, big family
Christmas party at daughter's on Sunday.

It is different to have Christmas with the temps in the 70's.

How many of you have Hallmark movies on in the background?  Think I know them by heart.
This one is A Dog Named Christmas.....and then there will be Christmas with Tucker.

I made a casserole last night.....corn casserole.....to be sure it would be good for the family dinner.
Well....it really wasnt....I think because I put two of them together....so off I go to follow a recipe....lol.

Hugs to all...... ::HelloKitty::

Glad to hear you are enjoying the weather. I understand you have a couple more days of rain. I know it's needed.  It's been so dry. Lets hope that the mountains get lots of snow this year.  ::DancingSantaMonkey1::

Thanks, Klaas!

There are so many Monkeys missing.  They remain in my heart.  Each Monkey changed SM in some way.  Some Monkeys have not only left SM, but left the earth as well.  This brought tears to my eyes.  Thanks, Klaas for bringing them back so they are not forgotten.

Hi Monkeys.....

Not sure how cold it is in your neck of the woods, but the deep South was 18 degrees overnight.  I was feeling good about
my nice warm home until I found out that there are electrical outtages all around.  I do hope everyone who is out there is
warm, and your electricity is holding out.

No TV and no internet so I dug out the old MiFi....lol. 

This looks like it might be a good year.  Gas is under $2 a gallon.  Must be time for a road trip...!!!

Hugs all.... ::HelloKitty::

It is bad when it is so cold.  There are a lot of vulnerable people in this weather.  This summer, we needed to replace our heat pump, it was really hot in the house until it was replaced, but every time I get out of the car to go in the house, I thank God that it died in the summer, because we would never have survived without heat in this weather.  My prayers go out to all who are cold and have nowhere to go.  I hope someone takes them in.

Have a good time planning your trip.  Be careful of the weather and keep your gas tank full.  Keep some blankets, scarves, hats, and gloves in your car.  Don't forget to have a good time!  It is always good to see you Mere.  It is nice to see you are happy in your new place, it was a big move.  I am in awe of how fast you got things put away in time for guests.

I once made a caramel pie for a get together.  It tasted terrible.  I never thought to try it before I presented it to other people.  I was so upset.  The woman whose house it was asked me if I had tried it first.  When I said, no, I had not thought to do that, she kindly explained to me that it would be better to try things before bringing them anywhere.  I was very young and believe me, I never made that mistake again.  You could not even pretend to like that pie.

True-life horror story
Author examines three decades of murder along I-45 and the Texas killing fields

By Maggie GalehouseJanuary 22, 2015 Updated: January 24, 2015 2:00pm

 ::snipping3::

Four corpses

The League City "killing fields" sit behind the Magnolia Creek Baptist Church on Calder Drive. Four female corpses were found here between 1983 and 1991, back when people dumped trash and building materials in the abandoned oil field. Tim Miller planted the first cross here around Christmas 1986, more than two years after his daughter, Laura Lynn Miller, disappeared after using a pay phone at a nearby convenience store. She was 16. Her body was found in the clearing in February 1986.

"They kept Laura's remains for three years before we could bury her," says Miller, 68, "so there wasn't a cemetery plot or headstone. That was Laura's little spot."

"I never wanted to start Equusearch," Miller confides. "I really didn't. I'd go out to that place on Calder Drive and I'd stand in front of her cross and break down and say, 'Laura, I can't come here anymore. I've got to get on with my life.' I'd be walking away, and I'd hear a voice that said, 'Don't quit, daddy.'"

Last September, the 30th anniversary of Laura's disappearance, Miller and his Equusearch volunteers wrapped the trees surrounding the crosses with gold ribbons tagged with the names of missing persons. The ribbons and tags still are here, weary survivors of the elements. Miller and his crew also planted crosses for the other three bodies found in clearing.

Heide Villareal Fye, a 25-year-old waitress and bartender, left her parents house in Dickinson on Oct. 7, 1983, to hitch a ride to Houston to see her boyfriend. The following April, her corpse was found in the clearing.

The other two bodies found here have never been identified; their crosses read Jane Doe and Janet Doe. But Mark Roland Stallings, already sentenced to life behind bars for a series of crimes, remains a prime suspect in the Janet Doe murder and two other murders in Fort Bend County.

Stallings was one of three men Casey interviewed in prison for her book. He told her he killed the woman now identified as Janet Doe, a teenage prostitute he strangled and dumped in the clearing.

"He was terrifying," says Casey, 64, who is married and lives in northwest Houston. "He's kept in a small prison in Woodville. He just sat there and in a very matter-of-fact tone told me why he murdered these women. He said these women didn't count. They didn't matter. He felt entitled, and he was unremorseful."

I have always wondered if Tim Miller ever investigated this case:  http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/g/goad_kathy.html

Kathy Mae Brownfield Goad
Missing Since November 11, 1982


Kathy was married to my brother's best friend.  They moved from here to Texas.  Her body has never been found.  They had a suspect but back then bringing a murder charge without a body just didn't happen.

I really don't know if Kathy's parents are still alive but if one or both are I know it would be a great relief to know what happened to her.  Most articles I read about her disappearance was the police were not very concerned with solving this case.  A local sheriff made several trips down there with a dog from a Pennsylvania policeman to see if he could find what lake her body was disposed in.

I know her disappearance happened before Tim's daughter was murdered but I have always wondered if he had ever handled anything with this case.

Here is an article that appeared in our local newspaper back in July 1983:

"Search for Kathy Goad's body continues"

Park City Daily News
July 15, 1983


So many years have passed that I doubt this case will ever be solved.

One more thing.  Both Kathy's parents are dead.  The detective from here, Glen Wood, is dead also.  Kathy was an only child.  It really doesn't look good that this will ever be solved.

13 inches of snow in Kentucky----------------haven't had this much snow since 1968.

Mere, your old hometown is getting 21" of snow.

Wednesday night the low is supposed to be -8 degrees.  Won't be above freezing until Saturday.

Thank goodness for a fire in the stove.

Blue Moon.....I came looking for you....lol.  Friends are sending pictures.  It looks like everything is covered.  Hard to
tell where the streets are, and I am sure that only the major streets are plowed.  Wonder how the hospital staff
got in to work.

One of the pictures involved an ambulance, but I dont know where it was taken.

Tomorrow is Mardi Gras.  How my life has changed.....but I think of you often.

Will see what I can find in the local paper in the morning.

Keep warm..... ::HelloKitty::

I just learned this afternoon how I am not a spring-chicken anymore.  My and hubby got out and shoveled the driveway.  I cleared a path from the garage to the road.  We waited until the plow truck came through before we started. Well I was so proud to make it to the end of the driveway (big accomplishment for an old person) and what happens-----the plow comes through on my side of the road and he was going so fast it threw the snow up in the air right back into the path I had just cleared.  Time to start over!!

Wednesday night it is supposed to get down to -11 degrees.  Now that is just plain cold.

The roads are a mess.  The interstate and the parkway is not clear and they have a state of emergency out for Kentucky.  Tennessee got freezing rain and sleet and it is perilous down there.  Of course no one around here knows how to drive in this.

I have some pics I will post later on.

Enjoy Mardi Gras.     ::MonkeyShovel::   ::HelloKitty::

Well good afternoon....Mardi Gras started in the 30s but no rain....so that counts as all good.
Bourbon Street and the Quarter are packed.  I know this because I watch TV....lolol.  I have bad knees and could
not make it into the Quarter without a walker....and the crowds would think that is my costume...!!!

I would like to ask my monkey friends if anyone can tell me about experience with total knee surgery.  I am facing
that next month....and I would love to begin some notes on what to do to get ready.

Blue Moon....I cant believe you were shoveling so much snow.  Could you just kill the snowplow man when he comes back right after you are finished.  I believe the movie is Snow Day.  I had it on in the background recently.  Your experience reminds me of that movie.  Dont go get it though...I think it is a one star movie.

Going back to look for KY pictures....... ::HelloKitty::

Dear Father,  Please place your healing hand on our dear sweet friend, CBB.  Wrap your arms around her family during this time and help them get through, give them the strength to support her and love her through this.  Guide the hands of those caring for her, that she may be completely healed, and back home soon with those that love her.  In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.

God bless CBB and get well soon!

Have thought a lot about you and the knee surgery.  Have you started physical therapy yet?  The pain will subside over time.  You are well on your way.  Will keep you in my thoughts.  Hopefully you will be as good as new soon.

Yes, I just went back and read a lot of CBB's posts.  The last was about Waylan and the progress he has made since coming into their lives.  It is so strange to have never met her at all but to feel like you know them personally.  I guess that is how it is with all our monkey friends.  Breaks my heart to see anyone go through such difficult times.

Take care, keep us updated on your progress.  You will be amazed at the progress you made one month down the road.

::HelloKitty::Hi Blue Moon....I came in this morning to talk about the knee surgery and saw the notes about CBB.  I am praying for her.  She has been such a good friend over all these years.

I am on day 11 Knee Surgery and the pain is pretty awful.  Just pray that the prosthesis is in place.  Having difficulty walking,  I will be going to see doctor on Thursday and have x-rays done.

Hugs to all of you. 





A friend of mine had knee replacement in January and is doing well now.  Driving and living her life.  She was in a lot of pain initially and had difficulty walking just a few feet to her ensuite bathroom.
My cousin has had his second knee surgery and is doing well. 
Sorry you are in pain and hope it subsides soon and you have a full and complete recovery.
 ::MonkeyAngel::
Each day forward is another day closer to your recovery. 


Thank you so much for your post.   It has made my day!!!

Mere, I hope you get better day by day and the pain will subside soon.  Hope you have good news at the doctor Thursday.  This pain will get better over time and you will feel like a new person.  My sister has had both knees done and she travels the world now with her husband.  Her first one was bad---lots of pain.  Her 2nd one was a breeze because she was scheduled to go to Australia and she fought to get well and she had a quick recovery.  Good luck at the doctor, will be thinking of you.

Mere, praying that the pain will subside and you'll be good as new soon!  I have two friends that have gone through knee replacement surgery, one had quite a bit of pain at first but it didn't last too long and she's fine now.  She even went skydiving a few months ago, and made me a nervous wreck.  The other had both knees done at the same time, and was out on the golf course in record time.  But he's just crazy and tough, lol.

You'll get there, one day at a time!   ::MonkeyKiss::

Went into the city and had 30 staples removed, had the leg xrayed with good results.  The PA is very happy with the looks of the leg and so am I...!! 

Now for pain.....there is still swelling and pain on pressure.  I become exhausted so quickly.  One more week of inhouse
physical therapy.....and then on to out-patient.  Everyone says I will not remember this......like after childbirth....lolol.

Hi monkeys......what a very long day, but the results were good.

Went into the city and had 30 staples removed, had the leg xrayed with good results.  The PA is very happy with the looks of the leg and so am I...!! 

Now for pain.....there is still swelling and pain on pressure.  I become exhausted so quickly.  One more week of inhouse
physical therapy.....and then on to out-patient.  Everyone says I will not remember this......like after childbirth....lolol.

Thanks to all your support.

CBB....my prayers to you.  Much love and big hugs.   :smt054




Mere, glad to hear your good news.  You will see improvement daily.  Remember that old saying "No pain, no gain".

Continued prayers for CBB.  Hope to hear better news in the coming days.  Hang in there girl.

I have decided to leave Tuesday instead of late tonight.  As of last night things didn't seem to be going so well.  Immediate family only is allowed and her son graciously offered to get me in there tomorrow by saying I was family. 

Ready for some good news???  They expect her to make a full recovery, God willing.   ::MonkeyCheer4::  ::MonkeyHeart::

I figure if I wait to go on Tuesday hopefully she will be off the vent by t then.

Thank you for the update ... Great News ... CBB is continued to be in my prayers.

Mere hope you heal fast praying for you as well.

Isn't modern medicine great? Daughter has gestational diabetes and hbp and was going into pre eclampsia. Baby due date is May 5 so she was 5 weeks early. The steroid shot worked at maturing her lungs. Mommas bp should go down and hopefully her diabetes goes away too.

Hi Monkeys.....I am so happy that CBB has been discharged, and I hope that she is feeling better.

Today is the fourth week after surgery on my knee.  I would not say that I am doing so well, but I hope to improve each day.

I slipped in my room and slid down on the carpet.....had to have two people help me up.  You know the TV ad...."I've fallen and I can't get up".   I would have laughed if I hadn't been crying....lol.  Later the same day, I had another incident with bending the knee too much. 

A man at rehab told me that he was three months post op and that "it just takes time".  He did say that the first month to six weeks is the toughest.  It is too funny to see that all "knees" are able to spot each other and all want to talk about their experiences.

Am transitioning now to out patient physical therapy for two months.

I personally think that prayers work.....so I would love to ask for prayers until I get up to speed.

Hugs to all of you.....Mere

Oh Mere, Prayers headed your way for a timely recovery. I have learned that we all are different in our ability to do things. Some heal faster than others.  I am sorry to hear you fail. At least you can laugh or giggle about it now. I am sure at the time you didn't think it was funny. One day at a time and you will get there.  ::MonkeyAngel::

So sorry to hear about your slow recovery.  That man was correct, it does take time.  My mother sat and cried when they were doing her therapy and it was all I could do to stop myself from yelling at them to STOP IT NOW!  She never did get the full use of that knee because she had nerve damage before the surgery.  The 2nd knee replacement went rather smooth for her so even with the same person the results can be different.  You have to watch yourself and always have a cane or walker in front of you until you get the full use of that knee back.

Be careful and keep telling yourself every morning "One more day behind me".  I will keep you in my prayers for a speedy recovery.  Be safe!

I think prayers work too, and I'm praying for you! 

Falling and then over extending must have been scary as well as painful, bless your heart.  :smt056

Be patient, you'll get there!   ::HelloKitty:: ::MonkeyKiss::

Well....today was six weeks post op and I went into the city to have my leg checked.  Got an A+ from
the P.A. who could not believe how well I was walking and how much I could flex and extend my leg......it was back to normal...... and she told me that I could stop PT unless I wanted to continue for strength purposes. 

I am walking now and using a cane for longer distances.
I will continue with PT and learn some new tricks....like climbing stairs to post office and going into Olive Garden....lol.  I do expect another six weeks of muscle strengthening.  They took x-rays of both legs.  It certainly shows the difference.

So.....for all of you who have supported me, thank you so much..... ::HelloKitty::

Hi Mere,

So happy to see you are doing well.  I think it's a good idea to continue PT for another six weeks.  You will be amazed how much you could strengthen your leg.

Looking forward to your next update when you tell us you are jogging around the block  ::MonkeyWink::

Okay Blue Moon......thinking of you.....who do you want in the Derby?

Okay....off to week 7 of total knee replacement.....

  ::HelloKitty::    This is a tough surgery, but it is getting so much better.  I am walking without assistance...although I keep the cane in the car in the event I see a curb that might need some help.

I have a small ice chest with Zip-loc bags right next to my bed.  Ice is just super for pain management. 

On the plus side, I have lost 30 pounds.  This really helps as I needed to knock off some extra weight.

At the height of pain management.....I was taking 1/2 pain pill about every 4 - 6 hours.  At the last doctor's visit, the
P.A. told me to change meds and go to a stronger dose and see if I could take one whole pill every 10 or so hours.
She was so right.  I now take one pill every 12 hours....and it works.

Of course, pain medicine is not good for staying "regular"....so I can speak on that subject also....lolol.

I feel pretty old for all of this, but I think it will be worth it.

Big hugs to all of you......Mere

You know, I haven't even bothered following the derby this year.  All I know is the traffic between here and Louisville is absolutely horrible.  I have never gone to the Derby (my parents would never allow it---too many wild parties in the in-field.   ::monkeywine2:: ::monkeywine2::
I have only been to Mammoth Cave once (when I was a freshman in high school).  Lots of great sights in Kentucky but I guess living within driving distance takes the fun out of a "road trip".

Hope you are still doing good Mere.  (Carpe Diem came in 10th) If I had to pick one it would have been Danzig Moon!

SCARED MONKEYS WOULD LIKE TO WISH ALL MOMS A VERY SPECIAL HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY

(http://scaredmonkeys.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/mothers-day-baby-monkey-with-mom-300x200.jpg)

Quote
A special Mother’s Day wish to all those mom’s of missing children and one’s who have been victims of crime. God Bless you all. Also, a special Mother’s Day wish to the mom’s of our military soldiers … Thank you for the sons and daughters you raised and for your sacrifice. To all the moms, all we can say is THANK YOU!!!

My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her. – George Washington

All I am, or can be, I owe to my angel mother. – Abraham Lincoln

There never was a woman like her. She was gentle as a dove and brave as a lioness … The memory of my mother and her teachings were, after all, the only capital I had to start life with, and on that capital I have made my way. – Andrew Jackson

When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold, your son!” (27) Then he said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother!” And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home.  John 19:26-27

Happy Mothers Day Mom, I Miss You so much and Thank You for all that you did …

This will absolutely bring tears to your eyes on this Mother’s Day … belo , simplesmente belo.

Without doubt as stated at CNET, one of the most exciting and emotional events for parents about to have a child is getting to see their little tyke through an ultrasound. However, such an exciting moment was not possible for the blind. Not any more. This might be one of the most touching VIDEOS ever as Tatiana Guerra, a blind mother-to-be was provided a way to see her unborn baby for the first time thanks to 3D printing technology. The VIDEO will warm your heart. The video is entitled, ‘Meeting Murilo.’ But before Tatiana feels the actual 3D-printed sonogram of Murilo she reads a message in braille.“I am your son,” she says, laughing and crying all at all once. The 30 year old mom, who lost her sight when she was 17, was 20 weeks pregnant at the time of the exam. The video was uploaded on 4/30/15 and at last check it had 8,338,785 views.

It seems the Trinity river up here is flooding all over in Northern Texas. The whole state is getting hit. Hope all our Texas Monkeys are safe.

Oklahoma, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama are getting hit too.

When it was realized how much water was coming, the emergency group tried to do reverse 911 calls to get people to evacuate.  For some, they couldn't get out or it was too late.  There were a lot of rooftop rescues once the weather allowed the helicopters to get in the air.  I feel so badly for the two families that are missing and their relatives.  It's not looking good for them.  I'm in an area that is much higher elevation, so the water hasn't been a problem, but the winds and such caused trees in the neighborhood to snap, to fall over, and there's a good amount of roof damage.  Most important though is there were no injuries in my neighborhood.  One of my son's lives in San Marcos and so far his home is safe.  We have more rain coming today.   ::MonkeyNoNo::

If the weather channel is right. Today should be the last day of rain here in Texas & Oklahoma for awhile. If their math is right about the amount of rain here. There was enough rain that fail that the whole state of Texas could have 8 inches of water on the ground. That's the whole state. That's a lot of rain.  ::MonkeyShocked::

Tell us something we don't already know ... Study Says Chimps have mental skills to cook.

https://uk.news.yahoo.com/chimps-mental-skills-cook-study-230355185.html#6C3KTCg

Why else would Monkeys come up with a cookbook?

(http://www.vintagetobacco.com/goldcoast/new/pcg/g7349.jpg)

Quote
They're not likely to start barbecuing in the rainforest, but chimpanzees can understand the concept of cooking and are willing to postpone eating raw food, even carrying food some distance to cook it rather than eat immediately, scientists reported on Tuesday.

The findings, based on nine experiments conducted at the Tchimpounga Sanctuary in Republic of Congo and published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B, suggest that chimps have all the brainpower needed to cook, including planning, causal understanding, and ability to postpone gratification.

They do lack the ability to produce fire. But if they were given a source of heat, chimps "might be quite able to manipulate (it) to cook," said developmental psychologist Felix Warneken of Harvard University, who conducted the study with Alexandra Rosati.

Whilst the finding may seem esoteric, it lends support to the idea that cooking accelerated human evolution. Cooked food is easier to digest, spurring the growth of large brains in our australopithecine ancestors, Harvard's Richard Wrangham proposed about a decade ago.

If chimps have the cognitive skills to cook, australopithecines likely did, too, said Wrangham, who was not involved in the study: "It suggests that with a little extra brainpower, australopithecines could indeed have found a way to use fire to cook food."

Hello Monkeys....been missing everyone.....

Have family in Katy and San Antonio and have been spending much time reading weather reports the past few weeks.  I do hope that everyone is okay.

Daughter is in Texas now.  She and hubs are attending wedding (soon), and daughter is decorating the wedding cake.
She told me she was going to go to Austin and then San Marcos and then San Antonio.  Of course the plans were made well before the rains, and I was worried about them.  Apparently the traffic in that area is awful, but the water was not a problem on the Interstates.  They are enjoying themselves..!

Would like you all to know that I am almost three months post-op total knee replacement and have been
to see surgeon this week.  Got an A+ on everything.  Seems to be better each week.....no cane or walker for some time now.....and I saw him tell the residents to look how well I was walking....lol.  He does want
me to use the Mederma scar cream ($25 a tube) and also to use sunscreen whenever I am out.  Poor man does not realize that I will probably keloid and that the red scar will be here forever....lol.  Anyhow....I do not see him again for three months.  The only thing I can say is that I do not have the same stamina I had before.....but hoping to improve.

GE I am so happy for your grandchildren.  Please let us know how GD does in Haiti.....and GS visiting you.
We never could go see anyone when we were kids as everyone lived within a few blocks of us....!  Maybe that is why I love to get in the car and go....whenever I can.  In fact, thinking of where the next road trip may take me.   ::HelloKitty::

So glad to hear your good news.  Enjoy your summer and all those road trips you wouldn't be taking if you hadn't had the surgery.

We are planning our next road trip back out west.  Going to take highway 89 from Glacier National Park all the way down to Arizona.  It runs through 6 national parks from the border of Canada to the border of Mexico.  Can't wait. 

I was really worried about my cousins in Texas.  Emailed her and she finally responded a couple days later.  Said they were o.k. Both her and her father live at areas near lakes but she said because they had droughts the last couple of years they both are full now but not flooding.  Said that is the only thing that saved them.

Green Eyes, I know you have to be so proud of your GD.  In this day and age it is so refreshing to hear of young people doing so much good in this world.

I posted this on FB today, it really tore me up:  https://youtu.be/u0jy7KFP6X0

Hello Texas monkeys.......something working up in the Gulf.....on the Texas side....could also affect Louisiana....looks like lots of rain.....possible flooding.  DD and SIL are heading home in the morning.

Will go see if I can find some good information....... ::HelloKitty::

Well this is a good site and could be used to watch now and the future.....mouse over the X for additional information....  http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/

Bill has landed Mere. ::MonkeyHaHa::  Rain and more rain. More flooding and road closures here in North Texas. But pretty much from the gulf all the way up the state. We have had about 5 inches of rain since last night.

Wish we could send some to you out in California Klaas.  ::MonkeyKiss:: Not so much so fast, I would be afraid that all the burnt out hill sides would slide down.   

We (humans) need to find a good way to capture excess water and distribute in areas that need it, like California.    ::MonkeyCool:: ::MonkeyRain::

It has always puzzled me why desalinization plants were never set up and piped the water to areas like oil and gas are. Its a shame that water has got to the issue like it is in CA. There are many reasons.

https://en.wikipedia.org/?title=Desalination

The whole Global warming nonsense is a myth. That has nothing to do with Cali's issues. Farming has boomed in California since the early 1900's and more and more people are living in areas that were once barren.

Man needs to look at environmental policies before they need to just blame it on Global warming.

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2015/04/16/man-made-disaster-critics-say-california-drought-caused-by-misguided/

Quote
In an average year, California gets enough snow and rain to put 200 million acres under a foot of water, but environmental opposition to dams over the last several decades has allowed the majority of the freshwater to flow into the ocean, even as the state’s population exploded to nearly 40 million people. The current drought has left farms parched and residents under strict water consumption orders, but some say it didn't have to be that way.

Quote
But the vast majority of the state’s 1,400 dams and reservoirs, in the two massive systems and smaller ones that supply southern California, were built well before the 1980s. Environmentalists have since stopped the construction of water storage and delivery systems through legal and political actions. They have also fought to ensure that captured water is released into streams and the ocean -- rather than the water delivery system -- in order to boost fish populations and dilute the salinity of the delta.

“Droughts are nothing new in California, but right now, 70 percent of California's rainfall washes out to sea because liberals have prevented the construction of a single new reservoir or a single new water conveyance system over decades, during a period in which California’s population has doubled,” said Carly Fiorina, former CEO of Hewlett Packard and likely GOP presidential candidate. “This is the classic case of liberals being willing to sacrifice other people's lives and livelihoods at the altar of their ideology.”

Let's hope common sense one day beats environmental-wackos and their failed science and policies for all Californians sake.

Red - they are building some desalinization plants, just not enough or fast enough.  This one in Carlsbad is ahead of schedule:

http://carlsbaddesal.com/

They are talking about building one maybe where the San Onfre Nuclear Power Plant or further north.  It's quite costly from what I hear.

What a morning. Took granddaughter to work and on the way home stopped to fill the gas tank in my car. Then I couldn't find my bank card.  ::MonkeyEek:: Came home dumped my purse out going though everything no card. Starting to panic just thinking about the hassle of cancelling and changing all my accounts. Trying to remember when I used it last. Thinking I hadn't used it since the beginning of the week. When duh I used at the gas station by the house to get hubs his beer & cigs last night. So I hopped back in the car and went to the station. As soon as I walked in the young man smiled and said we were wondering when you were going to come get it. Thank you Lord. Living in a small community as it's perks.   ::MonkeyCheer3::

GOD BLESS THE USA ... Lee Greenwood




If tomorrow all the things were gone
I worked for all my life
And I'd had to start again
Just my children and my wife
I thank my lucky stars
To be living here today
'Cause the flag still stands for freedom
And they can't take that away
And I'm proud to be an American
Where at least I know I'm free
And I won't forget the ones who died
Who gave that right to me
And I gladly stand up next to you
And defend her still today
'Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land
God bless the U.S.A.

A desperate search has been under way in Kentucky for a mother of five who has been missing for more than a week.

Crystal Rogers, 35, was last seen July 3 by her boyfriend. He reported her missing from their Bardstown home two days earlier.

Police found her maroon Chevy Impala with a flat tire abandoned near the Bluegrass Parkway. Inside, police found her purse, keys and cellphone.

"Fox & Friends" reported Sunday that the boyfriend, Brooks Houck, has declared his innocence. He has taken a lie-detector test with inconclusive results.

Family and friends suspect foul play. Rogers' mother, Sherry Ballard, is among those who fears the worst................................................

Thanks Klaas, I am very suspicious of him.  His lie detector was inconclusive which is not good.  I wished I could have found another news writeup of this, the comments on this fox article is absolutely disgusting.  Kentucky is taking a beating in the comments.  It should be on finding this woman.  I will look for the local news and see what it is saying.

Yes!  We have had constant fairly light rain here all day along with thunder and lightening.  They have evacuated several of the beaches in Southern California due to lightening strikes!  The rain is so needed! 

That said, I'm sure glad we didn't decide to go to Vegas this weekend!  Between that horrible fire on the 15 in the Cajon Pass and now the flash flood warnings in the San Bernardino area and Las Vegas area, it would have really been a mess!

That fire was horrific!  I can't imagine what it was like for people who had to leave their cars and run up or down that freeway just to escape the flames!

It's comical how that story about the tow trucks has spread, when the original article even has a quote from the tow truck company saying they will be reimbursing everyone that they towed (9 cars). 

I think this story is being blown way out of proportion. 

http://abc7.com/news/driver-who-abandoned-car-in-north-fire-pays-$1000-to-towing-company/862325/

 ::snipping3::

Driver who abandoned car in North Fire pays more than $1000 to towing company

Gonzalez Tow says California Highway Patrol requested the company's services and they charged normal hourly rates. Some of their drivers were working up to eight hours to help clear the freeway.

A manager at Gonzalez Tow told Eyewitness News that the company plans to reimburse the fees for all nine people they towed.

"Our company does not operate on people's hopelessness and any illegal activity or over charging," the manager said in a statement. "The hours we worked as a whole will be donated to the County of San Bernardino as good faith in helping to clear the highway."

 ::snipping3::

So here's what happened.  The CHP called several tow truck companies in the area and asked for their help clearing the freeway.  It had to be done.  As you can imagine, normal regular employees may not have totally understood what to do and simply charged as they normally would.  It's being rectified.

Thanks Klaas.  That's good to hear.  I have facebook but I don't like it.  I come from a large family and there is always one in the family that ruins it for all the others.  She takes FB too serious and gets mad and blocks/deletes us (me in particular) when we don't comment on her postings and pictures (she has over 2000 pics of all her worldwide travels).    I hate FB because some (like my sister) use it as a bragging tool.  I only use FB to keep in touch with my family members and best friend who all live out of state.

I feel the same way you do about Facebook.  I really don't care for it and spend very little time on it.  I also believe it's very intrusive and un-secure.  People post way more than they should about their lives on facebook IMO.

Everything is good.  Forum is just really slow. Many have taken to FB book to post mostly  ::MonkeyCool::  Personally, I'm not crazy about facebook  ::MonkeyWink::

Me either, Klaas.  It's a good venue to get missing persons faces seen, but there are some evil people that prey on the mp cases and their families.  It's really sad.  jmo

Hope all are doing okay. Prayers for all in need. I can't believe how fast summer is passing. Grandson here in North Texas starts back to school in a week. Grand children in California have already started back to school. Seems way to early for school to start. 

Between driving granddaughter to and from work, driving hubs to his doctors appointments. Had to call 911 a couple weeks ago, to take him to the ER as he couldn't breathe. Thank God he is okay, but scared me. Have had youngest grandson here with us most of the summer. Just because  ::MonkeyHaHa::

GE - you are always so busy plus driving!  You could apply for an Uber driver - JK!

Glad your hubs is Ok- better to call though. I had one of those calls about a year ago.  My kids say I had a "fake heart attack". ( no disrespect intended at all)  Its scarey for everyone - they just make light of it now.

I have a couple of nights by myself at home - it's pleasant to say the least!

Prayers for our monkeys - what a caring and compassionate group - glad I found y'all.

Can't remember if I told yall the criminal got a hold of an armadillo recently. It was not a pleasant sight to witness.  Wish I could un see it.  The criminal has a bad eye now, too.  Haven't discerned if she can see out of it - she's happy ( well, for her) and active and doesn't miss a beat.  The vet prescribed eye drops and the first night, she bit the stew out of hubs in his hip.  No more eye drops administered by Us.  She's a challenge. We love her but she's a challenge.

The next hurdle is how to have the baby grandson over with her around  ::MonkeyNoNo::

Prayers go up - Cad

Cadillac,

LOL It's a good thing I like driving. It was scary with hubs, they thought he might have been having a heart attach. He wasn't thank God. It's hard getting old.

Poor criminal, I can sympathize with him being a hand full when giving her, her meds. Hope her eye gets better. I know even when our fur babies are a challenge we still love them.  ::MonkeyHeart::

Prayers she does good when your new grandson comes for a visit. ::MonkeyAngel::

Good Morning all......went into the city for my 6 months post-op check-up on knee (total knee replacement) and received gold stars....lol.  To be truthful, I found it really tough at the beginning and now I dont think about the knee at all....unless the dog jumps up to play.  I saw the doctor look at the other knee, and I told him to just "forget it"....the right knee has been a winner, and I am walking up and down steps and doing so well, there is no need to have another.

Since I have been in the city for the doctor visits and also for the high school ladies luncheons, I have seen much of the renewal of the city which has taken place after Katrina.  I should take pictures next time
as the houses are now being built higher in areas near the levees....but the homes are beautiful.  This is
in the suburban areas.  I have not been into the inner city, but friends tell me that some parts are doing well and others not so much.

How is everyone now that kids are back to school.  It is cooler here after having days of 100+.  I think
October is our nicest month and it is right around the corner.  Today is sunny and 80 degrees and the A/C is off...!!!

I am cooking again, and today is a shrimp and crawfish etouffee.  I also copied a recipe for "the best potato soup ever".  It is a large batch, and I dont think potato soup will freeze well, so I will be adjusting
it.

Does anyone have any recipes that are "the best"?

Hugs to all....Mere

So glad you're doing so well, Mere!   ::HelloKitty::  I knew you would though, you're one strong lady.   ::MonkeyWeight:: ::monkeywine2::

It's a little cooler here but not much, still have the a/c on full blast.   ::MonkeyHaHa:: 

We had one really nice breezy day when it wasn't hot at all, but that's it.  Back to hot and humid, and just enough rain to make it more humid.

One of our favorites for when it does cool off is taco soup.

I use about a pound and a half of ground chuck, brown it with a chopped onion and minced garlic.  Drain.  Add a can of (pureed) whole peeled tomatoes, and a can of rotel tomatoes and stir, add a taco seasoning packet and a packet of Hidden Valley Ranch Original Dressing Mix, and stir real good.  Then I add a can of (I drain and rinse these) black beans, red kidney beans, and shoepeg corn.  Let simmer until it comes to a good boil, and it's ready to eat.  We like it with cornbread or corn chips.

Hi Green Eyes.....speaking of Thanksgiving....lol....some family members have hinted about Thanksgiving, but I told them about the absolutely wonderful buffet at the local french restaurant.  It seems so worth it except that there are no left overs for turkey gumbo.  I went with DD and SIL last year.  Maybe roast a turkey sometime during the holidays and then bring batches of gumbo to family party.

There has been too much news for this old lady.  Oregon was/is awful.  I am praying for those children and their families.  I am not sure of the answer. 

And then there is politics round the clock for months on end.

I finally began looking for something else and ended up with "Doc Hollywood"....and now the "Parent Trap".....and then "Grumpier Old Men".  It begins to matter not that I know all the words to these movies....lol.

Hi Mere,

I had handed over the Holiday cooking to daughter a couple years ago. But with hubs health it's easier now for me to cook and for them to come here. The buffet sounds good. That way you can spend time visiting.

I am with you on all the news. It seems every day the world gets crazier and crazier. All those movies are wonderful.  ::MonkeyHaHa::

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/drinking-during-pregnancy-health-risks_5624e6d5e4b0bce347013a90

There is no amount of alcohol that is safe to drink during any trimester of pregnancy, advises a new report from the American Academy of Pediatrics.

And all forms of alcohol — including beer, wine and liquor — pose a similar risk to the developing fetus, according to the report from the nation's largest group of pediatricians..

(N.B. from Bearlyhere:  There are several clickable links explaining the information in this article.  The comments section after this article suggests other articles to read that refute this report.)


http://www.cbsnews.com/news/is-alcohol-safe-to-drink-during-pregnancy/

A recent study of first graders found 2.5 to 5% had evidence of fetal alcohol spectrum disorder.

I put the cart before the horse by putting the pregnancy article first. 

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/serena-mckenzie/the-little-pink-pill-is-n_b_8328332.html

Flibanserin, the first and only medication available for use in reproductive aged women with low libido, becomes commercially available this week after a rocky and controversial road that led to its FDA approval Aug. 18. The view on the medication whose brand name is Addyi (pronounced ADD-EE) ranges from a historical achievement in women's health care to an epic failure of commercialized medical propaganda. Despite the lengthy debate that has surrounded flibanserin, what most people want to know is whether it will help their sex life or not now that it is here.

I am not sure what the difference is either, except maybe they were different kind of trees.  I love the trees changing color also and the hope of a new school year.  I also love spring and the warmer weather coming out of the harsh winter.  I love to watch the flowers peeping out of their hiding places.

 ::MonkeyKiss2::

In celebration of the release of the 10 millionth page of Chronicling America, our free, online searchable database of historical U.S. newspapers, the reference librarians in our Serials & Government Publications Division have selected some interesting subjects and articles from the archives.

“Monkeys on Trial”
Locals in Benares, India, demand that a judge issue a warrant for the arrest of “three monkeys, names unknown, on the charge of theft and causing mischief.” The offending monkeys were said to be “the greatest thieves and robbers in the whole City of Palaces.” Columbus Journal, Nov. 20, 1895.  Read more...

Morning Monkeys ::HelloKitty::

Hope everyone's doing well. Looks like winter has come. Hope all are staying safe & warm.

Son came for his visit had a wonderful time. We had our Thanksgiving last Sat. We all ate way to much. It was so much fun having everyone together. Laughed so much at their silly banter. How I miss that. But then again after everyone left it was nice to have quiet. Guess we are getting old. ::MonkeyEek::

What's everyone going to be doing for Thanksgiving?

HI GE,

I now know what the saying "glad to see them come, glad to see them go" means?!?

Ha ha

Sounds like your Thanksgiving was a joyous one.  We will get together with hubs family on Turkey day - will be a big crowd. ( Will be my birthday, too - never liked having it on Thanksgiving).

It's not at my house but will cook several dishes to take. Dressing, cornbread of course. Zucchini casserole and a yellow squash one, too.

Hugs to all - Cad

Hi friends...going out today to get the last of the Thanksgiving items.  This is not my year to have it at the house.  This year is Texas...!!!  So I am bringing appetizers and snacks....and a couple of bottles of wine.
Will be driving over....maybe 6 hours....depending on whether it is possible that Houston could still have highways under construction....lol....!!!

I do love Thanksgiving, but I also love it at someone else's home.  Hope every monkey is going to have a wonderful day.  Hugs!  ::HelloKitty::

I don't know where to put this but this act of violence on an innocent little girl has torn this small town to pieces not to mention what it has done to her parents.  May he rot in he$$..................

http://www.wbko.com/content/news/Vigil-held-after-death-of-7-year-old-girl-in-Scottsville-350269161.html

 ::snipping3::

Vigil held after death of 7-year-old girl in Scottsville

SCOTTSVILLE, Ky. (WBKO) -- "Something like this could happen anytime, very quickly. It's safe to say that Allen County is probably changed from this point forward," that's how Trooper B.J. Eaton described the tragedy that happened in Scottsville.

The community is mourning the loss of 7 year old Gabriella Doolin. Community members say when a tragedy like this happens, especially in a small town, it's hard for residents to cope.

http://www.wbko.com/content/news/BREAKING-Body-found-in-Scottsville-349312871.html

  ::snipping3::
UPDATE: 10:13 P.M. Kentucky State Police Post 3 Public Information Officer Trooper BJ Eaton confirms it was a 7 year old female found in the creek.

Kentucky State Police confirm the body of a young girl approximately 7 years old was found near a creek close to the ball fields at Allen County Scottsville High School.

We were told the girl was reported missing, and later her body was found......................................

 ::snipping3::

UPDATED: 11/20/15 4:39pm

A police report obtained by WBKO has listed the cause of Gabbi Doolin's death as strangulation and drowning.

It explains that police made contact with Madden at his home the night of the crime. From there he agreed to be swabbed and turn over his clothes to police.

The report said those were the clothes he was wearing Saturday night at the football game.

The report also explains that Madden's bond has been set at $1,000,000.




I can't find the charges against him but he was charged with: Rape, Sodomy, Kidnapping and Murder.  He has 5 children of his own-a girl who was a cheerleader with little Gabbi, a son who plays soccer with Gabbi's brother, and he went to school with Gabbi's father.  They moved him from the Allen County jail to the Barren County jail-probably safer for him right now.  The comments on Facebook (WBKO) are like a lynch mob.

This is so sad.  Created a thread for Gabriella in the Crimes Against Children, Elderly and Disabled forum area:

Hi, Mere.  Hope you are doing good.  It really is better doing Thanksgiving at someone else home.  We will doing ours at my husband's sisters home this year.  I will do mine for some members in my family Friday-no black Friday shopping for me.

Enjoy and have a good time (be careful traveling).

Blue Moon it is always nice to hear from you.  I wondered if you had heard of the murder of this beautiful little girl.
Such a typical KY afternoon.....football and families.....and then this person kills a small child.  I know they have him.
I hear that DNA matches.  Will continue to follow.   ::HelloKitty::

Hi monkey friends...
Lots of snow in our area. I think we got around 12 inches..hubs and I look at each other over coffee this morning and say, why the hell do we live in Illinois lol..
Can't remember the last time I was here. Doing lots of things with grand daughters..traveling and spending way too much time on face book. Most of my friends are on there too and we end up doing too much chatting. Fb makes it easy cause we post and friends see it and comment. Saves texting and calling each other lol.

Life is good.
Hope everyone is doing good.

I honestly stay away because reading and hearing about all the mean things that happens to children was getting me down. Then after Casey got off from murdering her daughter I really lost faith in the court systems and jury's decisions.  I still follow some cases but not like I used to.
I miss talking with everyone here though! I need to check in here more often!
Talk soon!

I had a wonderful day with many family members.  Lots of cooking, lots of stories, much fun with the kids....

Part of the group is going shopping....and a few of us are "doing genealogy". 

What is everyone doing today?  Did you have a good day with more than enough food?

Hugs to all...... ::HelloKitty::

I am doing genealogy tonight.  Had to take a break from it.  How does an entire family disappear after the 1900 census?  I have looked everywhere and cannot find a single one of them.  Frustrating.

Sounds like you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! 

This weekend I'm working on my ornaments.  I have 18 painted and another 24 ready to paint.  Then I'll write each person/childs name on them then spray varnish.  Obviously, this years theme is Minions, LOL. I've been making ornaments for my family every year since the 80's (flour, salt,water).  This year I have to make approximately 40!:

Thanks!

My normal ornament is a Christmas bear.  But I have done Cabbage Patch, Christmas Moose, Elves, Alf, I'm sure I'm forgetting others.  Here is last years elf:

(http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a306/klaasend/klaasend040/elf_zpsvtbyy52x.jpg)

I have 24 Minions to paint today.  Then I have to personalize each then spray varnish, let dry then package for shipping.  I have an OLD Seal a Meal (from the 70's) I use to make envelope/pockets out of bubble wrap.  I put each ornament in it's own pocket, staple it closed and put one of those small bows and a name tag on it.  It's a long process.   ::ElfMonkey::

Post by: klaasend on November 29, 2015, 09:24:24 AM
Making these ornaments is great fun for the kids.  Here are the directions:

2 cups flour
1 cup iodized salt
1 cup water (or coffee to tint the dough)

Mix or sift together the flour and salt completely.  SLOWLY add the water a little at a time while stirring.  You might need a little less or a little more water depending upon the humidity.  Note:  you don't want the dough to be too sticky.  KNEED the dough just like you would for bread dough until smooth.  Put in a plastic bag.  You can store it in the refrigerator for a day or two but any longer and it gets too sticky to work with.  It's easiest to work with at room temperature.

Working on the cookie sheet you are going to bake them on, shape into desired shapes.  I roll balls then flatten, etc.  OR, you can use a rolling pin and cookie cutters but that's cheating, LOL  ::DancingSantaMonkey1:: ::snowmanlaugh::  You can use toothpicks or other things to make impressions in the dough.  For the Minions I used the end of a sharpie to make the round eyes for the glasses so I'd have a better chance at making them uniform and round.

Once you are finished with your shape, take cutters and cut a paper clip in half and place in the top of the ornament for a hanger.  Put in the oven at about 265 degrees or so until hard, about 2 hours, depending upon your oven.  Take out and let cool.

Remove from cookie sheet and paint with desired paints.  You don't have to varnish, they will be fine without varnish.  I use water base Craftsmart paint from Michaels but any water base paint will work fine (you should see how much paint and how many brushes I have, LOL).

If you are going varnish, hang on a metal hanger and take outside to varnish.  I use Minwax Helmsman Spar Urethane Clear Gloss but Krylon or any urethane will work.  Let dry completely before handling or packaging.

P.S.  It's actually harder than it looks BUT it is a blast.  I did it with my grand daughter a couple weeks ago and she had so much fun.  She made a Mickey Mouse face.  ::MonkeyReindeer::

Ryan Christopher came safely into the world last night.  He is beautiful.

Thank you for your prayers for Baby Eric.  I am not understanding how a healthy baby goes from healthy to very ill so quickly.  I saw it happen to my son after he was born.  He caught something in the hospital and ended up on a respirator and I still can't believe this happened.

 ::MonkeyConfused::



Oh no, I'm so sorry for the loss of little Eric.  Praying for peace and comfort for all.   ::MonkeyAngel:: ::MonkeyTears::

Praying for a safe delivery of grandbaby too, please give us an update when you can.  

Bless your heart, that is a roller coaster!  (((HUGS)))



Ryan Christopher came safely into the world last night.  He is beautiful.

Thank you for your prayers for Baby Eric.  I am not understanding how a healthy baby goes from healthy to very ill so quickly.  I saw it happen to my son after he was born.  He caught something in the hospital and ended up on a respirator and I still can't believe this happened.



Awww, I love his name, congratulations!   ::MonkeyHeart::

I'll never understand it either, it's terrifying!   ::MonkeyNoNo::

Hi Friends....first let me wish a Happy Birthday to all the January monkeys who are adding another year... ::HelloKitty::

Hope all those monkeys who have had weather problems are doing well now.  I am watching the lower Mississippi.
They will open the spillway on Sunday to relieve any additional pressure on the levees.  And then the fishermen are
trying to get there crabs and shrimp out of the water before the spillway opens.  I had not thought about anything but the levees......but now I read that the large ships may be affected also.....in moving and docking.

I know that some of us are interested in genealogy.  I will be having coffee with two second cousins next week.  The three of us are the great grandchildren of the same great grandparents.  We are bringing iPads and intend to share.
There is so much available on line now.  Will let you know how this goes.... :smt054

What's up with all of you?

Hugs, Mere

Well reporting back on the genealogy ladies coffee.

You know this felt something like meeting someone from Craigslist.  You are supposed to meet in a public place in the
daytime, etc.  While I could see that the two ladies, according to Ancestry, were cousins, I also am skeptical of
meeting strangers.....but......the day was beautiful.....and the three of us were driving about an hour to a central point to meet for coffee at La Madeleine's. 

The other two already knew each other.  I knew the color of one car, and the picture of both of them, and they knew I had on a red sweater.  It turned out to be a really nice time.  One husband came along as that couple was going to be going into the city.  We shared information on iPads or small laptops.

They are both so far ahead of me, but I really enjoyed seeing what was important to them.  There are wonderful
cemeteries that are above ground in our area, and I have been invited again to either coffee or to "do a cemetery run" where you identify relatives and take pictures of these beautiful old graves.

I wish I had started sooner....lol.... ::HelloKitty::

Will continue this story as it unfolds.....and do tell me what you do if you are interested in your family tree.

Mere, How exciting for you. Working on ones genealogy brings many happy experiences along with many let downs. While working on mine I have meant so many cousins, that have enriched my life any many ways. The sharing of information to me is one of my greatest joys.

This is my 26 year old Red Maple tree today.  The limbs are bowed over by 3/4" of ice before the 13" of snow.  I don't know if the tree will make it and it's the only one in the yard that did this.

Mere, I work on my Genealogy family a lot.  I never realized when I started this how time consuming it is.  I use Family Treemaker and they just announced they are eliminating the software by Jan 2017 so I have a year to move all my records over to a new software.  Not going to be easy as there are 17 years worth of records in there (backups are done regularly because of so much info and records).  I have met several "cousins"  in the past few years doing this.  We have become good friends with a couple from Michigan, a cousin from Oregon, and a family from Texas, Florida and Delaware.  I have really enjoyed meeting them and getting to know them.  As for visiting old graves, my husband will not go with me anymore to visit old cemeteries.  I have no shame when it comes to getting into old cemeteries---I climb over fences, I have to remove electric fence gates to get through, I have to watch out for copperhead snakes.  He said it is too dangerous going with me anymore. But I enjoy it.

I think everyone who works with, lives with, loves, or is related to a teen should know what is happening with our kids online. They may be inviting strangers into our homes in real time, and worse, recording themselves; these videos can be saved by strangers forever.  They are walking through houses showing potential thieves what you have and worst of all, they are opening up ways that predators can see your teen, where they live, what they do, where they go to school, etc.  The  filmers are not (usually) doing this to hurt you or themselves, they are only thinking about the demographic they are targeting or maybe the girl(s)/boy(s) they are looking to impress watching them.  I remember when Britney Spears was younger and wearing sexy outfits.  She said something along the lines of I want the 18 year old guys looking at me, but I don't want 40 year old men looking at me.  If you put something up for public display, it does not discriminate between those you want looking at it and those you don't.

http://wtvr.com/2016/01/28/chesterfield-bedroom-broadcast/

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. -- A Chesterfield mother said she wanted to warn other parents after she found her 12-year-old daughter live-streaming video of herself to hundreds of strangers from her bedroom.

Kelly Jarrett said her daughter Emily recently connected with strangers from all over the world on a website called YouNow.
[ https://www.younow.com/ ] There she broadcasted a live feed of herself giving advice to her friends without her mom’s knowledge.

“I was blindsided,” Jarrett said.

Emily received more than 400 comments from people, including random men who complimented her looks.

One of those men friend requested Jarrett on Facebook, and that is how she found out what her daughter was doing in the bedroom.

“It scared me on levels that I did not want to be frightened on,” Jarrett said.

YouNow is just one of many tools for live-streaming. Facebook recently introduced live-streaming to all of its users.

That's wonderful, Mere.  We are friends with 5th+ cousins on both my Mother and Father's side of the family.  Our family is very close and just never lost contact with each other.  My third cousin was my Maid of Honor at my wedding, I was also in her wedding and am Godmother to her first child and she is Godmother to my second child.  The children are now friends and it goes on...

Thank you for all your wishes for Eric, my Great Nephew who passed away from meningitis.  It threw us for a loop, not only because of his age of 11 months, but we also lost my Father 2 months before that.  We lost the oldest and youngest member of the family within 2 months.  As soon as Eric passed, my DIL went into labor.  Eric was my Brother and SIL's only Grandchild and my Niece and NIL's only child.  They are devastated.  Feelings are all over the place.  I feel guilty about being happy about Ryan with members of my family so very sad about their baby.

Eric has done more in his lifetime than many of us will.  He saved three lives with his organs.  He raised $30,000. in the first 2 days after he passed, and at the same time raised money for contagious diseases.  His fund is now joining with the county where he lives to build a playground in his name.  Our family is still devastated, but we have something positive to focus on.

Please, be an organ donor. 

I was talking to a man tonight who was originally from Africa and is now a US citizen after many years.  He said at first he did not feel right about donating his organs, but after some thought and some time passed, he felt it was the right thing to do.  Some people feel that they cannot donate organs because of their religious affiliations.  I urge you to go to a leader in your faith community who you trust and ask that person what the current teachings of your denomination are.  You may find their views have changed.  That is what happened to this man.  He is now very excited to be an American after many years.  He wanted this badly so his daughter could get a good education, and he is also proud to have 'organ donor' written on his driver's license.

Don't take your organs to heaven, heaven knows we need them here.

This little girl lived less than a block from where I lived at the time.  This case is so sad for this family.  I wish our local station had put up the video interview that was done with Morgan's mother and her 2 sisters--it was heartbreaking what this family has gone through knowing after 19 years that they will never know who or why their daughter/sister was murdered.  We had left for vacation the day she was abducted and all I could think to do was look at every van on the interstate to see if Morgan was in one.  This little girl was so innocent and so young to have had her life taken away from her family.  After 19 years it is safe to say her murderer will never be found.

The Morgan Violi Case: 19 years later
By Lyndsey Gough |
Updated: Wed 5:03 PM, Feb 17, 2016

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - "It's a haunting case because it's such a horrific tragedy. I think we all put ourselves in the place 'what if it were my child' and as a community, it just drilled down to the core that this could actually happen in Bowling Green, Kentucky."

That's how former Bowling Green Police Chief, Bill Waltrip described Morgan Violi's case. It all began just after noon on July 24, 1996.

"Morgan and another little girl were walking from a play area that they had just inside some woods back towards Morgan's apartment when the perpetrator grabbed Morgan, put her in a van, and drove off with her," said FBI Special Agent Dick Glenn, the agent assigned to Morgan's case.

"I heard the scream, I came around. He was just sitting in the van. He smiled and the other little girl was running through the apartment buildings and I didn't ... I thought they were playing," said Morgan's oldest sister, Heather Coleman, who saw the kidnapping occur.

7-year-old Morgan Violi had been taken from the yard in front of her Bowling Green apartment complex in broad daylight.

"I'm the oldest. I told her go put on her shoes. And that was the last time I ever saw her," Heather told WBKO.

It was the same area her two older sisters were playing in at the time.

"When it first happened I just went to bed on my own and thought it was a bad dream, but you wake up and there's cops everywhere, strangers," Heather said....................................

The street in my circle is flooded as are the ditches, but the lawns are okay so far.  My real worry is the flooding of rivers and streams.  I do have one behind me....a stream....and it was way down yesterday, but we have had a fair amount of rain.

 The dog is answering every thunder or lightning with a bark, so it can get loud....lol.  ::germanshep:: The local river is flooding and the campgrounds have been evacuated.

Anderson Cooper had a repeat of his CNN coverage of Katrina today.  Now that was a horror.....this is just "weather".

I don't know if any of you have ever had the need to check on electrical or cable outtages......but www.entergy.com and www.charter.net will show you
exact outtages.....when they occurred and when they are expected to come back on. 

As a child of the 1949 hurricane in NO, Dad had all of us in a small hallway that had four doors.  We each had a door to hold on to as the wind whipped
the house.  That is my first weather memory, but there were so many more.  While I am working on my family tree, I am writing these "stories".


Next subject......total knee replacement.....coming up to the one year anniversary and doing extremely well.  Walking up and down stairs, etc.
If you are faced with the same surgery, do your homework first.....on surgeon, hospital, therapy, etc. It has been worth it...... ::HelloKitty::

Be safe everyone...!!!

Mere stay safe. It's not over yet.  Glad to hear you are staying inside.  Please keep us up to date on how you are doing.

 ::snipping3::

Five people have been killed in Oklahoma, Texas and Louisiana since the deluge began earlier this week, and the heavy rain promises not to let up for at least another day.

More than 20 inches of rain has already fallen in some places, the Weather Channel reported. In all, some areas will receive two feet of rain by the time the storm winds down Friday, the National Weather Service said.

In addition to Louisiana, the hardest-hit state where three deaths occurred, parts of Arkansas, western Tennessee and southern Illinois will also be drenched by locally heavy rain into Friday, according to the weather service.

Good Morning.....I am fine so far, but there is flooding in many areas with lots of electrical outtages.  TV just said we had
10 - 16 inches of rain.  People are out in boats on residential streets assisting with evacuating families who are flooded.
There are 50 closed streets just in my town/area.

Remember that little stream behind me....lolol.....it has flooded some areas that are lower than I am.  Bet most of you don't know
that I am "high" at 9 feet above sea level....!!!  If you have a GPS, you can use it to determine whether your area is above or below sea level....and this can change from block to block.  It is a good thing to know about when you are looking for a home.

www.wwltv.com is covering the area.

I feel so fortunate as I have electricity and cable and very little water on my street.  This should be over soon.
Hugs.... ::HelloKitty::

Hi all.....much has happened in the area.....rain, thunderstorms, and flooding of the rivers and streams in four parishes in southern louisiana.   The weather channel says that the rain level is 20 inches over three days.  The rivers are flooding some of my favorite little towns and some nice rural areas.

I thought I could take a break today and drive to the grocery, but the rivers are still collecting rainwater and many will crest over the next 24 hours.  The small river behind the house has flooded the street leading to this subdivision.

The good news....no loss of electricity or cable.

Fingers crossed.....this should be over by Sunday evening.   ::HelloKitty::

Glad you're still hi and dry but sucks that you can't drive to the grocery store.  Hopefully by tomorrow the water will recede enough so you can get out.  They keep talking about El Nino in California but so far it looks like other states have gotten it much worse than us.  We had a huge downpour yesterday for about 10 minutes but that was it!  Today it's sunny and beautiful!  ::stpats::

Klaas you guys need the rain for sure. But in Southern Calif. most of it just runs off and into the ocean. They need it a little bit at a time so it can soak into the ground and not just run off. I know up North in the Sierras they have a large snow pack which should help some.  But I don't think the local mountains have much. At least my sons haven't said much about them.  Some times I really miss the weather out there.  ::stpats::

Hi Monkeys,

Long time, no see ... just thought I'd mention that I'm still alive!

So glad to see you...!!!  As the Bee said....alive is so good....!

Hello to all monkey friends.....
I recently heard from a classmate who heard that I had died and was looking for my daughter to tell her how sad she was.....lolol.  I guess there is someone with a similar name.  We classmates really do keep up with each other.  The group eats out together every three months, and some of us even more often. 

Have you ever had the experience of meeting up with people you have not seen in 50 years and can pick up right where you left off...???  Every now and then someone from California or New York or Washington will drop in to one of
these lunches.....and the conversation is remembered and resumed.  I love it.

(This if off topic, but I do need your help with treatment for a cold...cough....nausea, etc.
Just so you know....I am taking Mucinex liquid (maximum strength), Dimetapp, Delsym, Excedrin in a sort of rotating basis....and none of it more than allowed.  Right this very moment (3:02 am) I am awake and sitting in bed as I cannot sleep in a flat position.  The coughing gets so awful.  Last night was the recliner.  I figure I am about close to a doctor visit.  Does anyone have a miracle drug for colds and coughs?)

Before I go I would like seahorse to know how much I appreciate the political thread.  I have learned a lot...!!!

Hugs to all of you.....Mere

Shout out to Mere!!  I hope you're feeling better by the time you see this post.  Coughing isn't only annoying, it an also cause a rise in blood pressure, so be careful.  I don't have a miracle drug that's over the counter, but I do know sometimes doctor's will prescribe medication with hydrocodone in it to suppress coughing. One of my brothers was coughing a lot, and the doc prescribed cough meds with hydrocodone and it seemed to really work.   Believe it or not, my vet prescribed it for my elderly dog that suffered from congestive heart failure.  He would cough (actually it sound liked throat clearing) because his heart was enlarged and pressing up his esophagus.  I would give him a 10 mg tab as needed. 

Hydrocodone can be very effective, but with some of the new laws, it is hard to get because there have been folks that abused it, and it's ruined it for those that need it. 

I hope you get some relief soon, Mere.

I'm so sorry you're sick, Mere!  Hope you were able to get some rest today, and are better soon.  It sounds like you're doing some good things, but if you're not better maybe you should go in to the doctor.  I know you already know to drink a lot of fluids while taking the mucinex, and that chicken noodle soup has magical powers too, lol.

P. S.  I recently reconnected with some long lost cousins because someone told me their mother had passed away.  I was very relieved to find that it wasn't their mom; it was their mom's sister in law with the same name.

Hi.....will be calling in for a doctor visit tomorrow.... ::HelloKitty::

This is what I now know:
Dimetapp tastes best.
Delsym is strongest for cough.
Mucinex liquid tastes nasty.
Excedrin makes you feel better.

Smart water with flip top works best to prevent spills....lol.

It actually hurts to cough and feels like it is coming from my toes. 

My real wish is to go to sleep tonight and wake up all well...!

Hope you get some good rest and wake up feeling better in the morning!

Is your Mucinex DM, or just Mucinex?  I think the DM has more of a decongestant if it's in your chest too.  But I'm too sleepy to google it now.

Glad you're going to the doctor.  I should have mentioned Nyquil helps with the cough at night for me.  Also, in desperation I'll sip on a bit of whisky or any hard alcohol.  I actually keep some whisky around for that purpose just in case.  These days I don't drink alcohol at all except maybe a beer or two on 4th of July  ::MonkeyCool::  ::monkeymask::

A vineyard sounds nice.  I hope your son and DIL are doing well with their business.  If I do have a glass of wine it would be when I go out to a special dinner with the family or friends.  About two months ago I tried Baileys irish cream for the first time and I thought it was good.  I went to my neighbor's house and she asked me to have some Baileys with her.  I said I've never tried it.  She poured me a little and I thought it was good.  I gave her a bottle a few weeks ago and I went to visit a week later and I said did you have the Baileys I gave you and she goes I finished it  :shock:  I guess this is what happens when you turn 84 years old  :lol:

San.....did I tell you that son and dil have a vineyard in the finger lakes area?  They have wonderful wines, and I tried a bottle during the holidays.  This was my first try at wine.  I know most people dont wait as long as I have....lol.

I have good genes as far as longevity....until now....when I began feeling really puny with this illness.  The coughing has started a bit again this evening, and I have pulled out the Nyquil.

Oh....forgot to tell you.  All these years my parents told me that I was "totally French"....both sides and back as far as fourth or fifth grandparents who sailed over the waters from France.  When I had my DNA tested, I found out that I am

Europe West 38%
Iberian Peninsula 21%
Italy/Greece 18%
Ireland 16%
Trace Regions

I guess there is nothing like 100% when you look at where everyone came from to populate this world....I love this
background.....from all over.... ::HelloKitty::

No x-ray as chest was "clear" but the cough is now into the third week......so I think it is time to go back.  My family also thinks I should try something else as my multi-meds are not working.  I went out one day thinking I could go to
lunch and came home and slept for three hours....!!! 

OMG.....nipping on the Bailey's...lol.  I had it with coffee once.  Good.....

Thanks for thinking of me.....should be cured in a few days.....  ::HelloKitty::

Klaas....I should have paid attention to you.  Over the counter doesn't do it.....stubborn ole nurse....lol.

Okay......more than a month and, last Thursday, I was diagnosed with Acute Bronchitis, got a shot of something, started on prednisone and tessalon for cough, and some codeine cough medicine (which is awful) and five days later, I am on the mend. 

I wonder how everyone is doing.  I missed planting my tomatoes, green peppers, onions, etc.  When I lived in KY, the locals planted right after the Derby.  I could have planted a month ago here.  The funny thing is.....an old pepper plant from last year has two small green peppers.....never have had that before.

Is anyone going on vacation?

Glad you're finally on the mend Mere.  Yeah, this years flu or cold virus that is going around is a tough one to kick.  FWIW, I can't do Prednisone (makes me too angry and agitated).  I was having a dental implant done and the gal gave me that small cup and a pill.  I said, what is this pill, she said Prednisone.  I said "NO, not unless you want me to wreak havoc on this entire office!  ::MonkeyHaHa::

Good morning monkeys..... ::HelloKitty::

Each morning I check on the seahorse threads.....they are wonderful and have taught me so much.

I was out for the first time yesterday....and went past the local Target to see how "pee-gate" had affected the huge parking area there.  Still looks very popular...!  So glad that my children are grown.  I used to
go with them to any public bathroom.  

Having lived for many years in KY, I know that Hillary has lost votes in WV and KY.  Those are proud
people who have worked very hard for many years.  I guess there is a way to say things that will not
cut into the hearts of the people in the area.

I am sure that politics would not be a great subject for musings, but this has certainly been a rough
year.  I would like a strong leader for our country.....and someone in whom I can trust to make good
decisions for all of us.  Since I have been basically in bed ill for weeks, I have listened to hours of
political news....lol.

Ah well.....I will check out and tell you all that I miss you..... ::MonkeyBike::

Mere, Monkeys, and Guests  ::HelloKitty::

Miss you, too! I miss the good monkeys who helped me grow through laughter, tears, prayers, art, and good recipes, including the peeps fondue, LOL.

I miss, Brandi, sniff, sniff, does anyone know how she is doing?  T.Y.  I enjoy reading prayers that Sister posts.  

Mere, The general public does not comprehend HB2, Bathroom Bill, IMO.  Monkeys read, think, and discuss, and stay open minded on events.  Thank goodness for
scared monkeys :) I am so trusting I would be in the dark without you monkeys adding joy, hope, information and instructing me how to look-up court dockets.


Hugs to my monkey family.  

Thank-you.  ::MonkeyHeart::

I would appreciate it if Political discussions remained in the Political forum area.  I'll leave these posts here for now but any additional will prompt me to move them all. 

FWIW - everyone here is not a Republican and everyone does not hate Hillary.  IMO that will be proven yet again in November.

Hi Mere,  I was beginning to worry that you had pneumonia that's why I had asked you if you had an x-ray.  Hopefully by the end of this week you will feel much better.  Take it easy and rest.

I did not know you were under the weather.

I was half dead from a cold, yes, they can be deadly.

After I recovered I bought:
 
 Label:
- Natures Bounty
- Pure Vitamin, C-1000 mg,
- Supports immune system heath.

So far so good.  I thought the vitamin was time released, but I guess it isn't.

Just logged on - it's been awhile. Lots going on for me...

Hugs to JSM, lots of hugs.

I had been thinking about you too, 4 Donks, my AL friend. Hope you are doing well.

Chubby and the Criminal send hugs to all the monkeys.

Cad

Thanks!

Good to see you, cadillac!   ::HelloKitty::

She has been on my mind so much lately.

I know we don't really "know" each other but what a beautiful story the two shared here with us.

Hearts, hugs and warmth to all of you.

Yes, it really was.  They didn't have nearly enough time together.

Good morning monkeys.....it surely has been warm in this area.....high 90's until we had huge rain yesterday....then down to the mid 70's.
The plants are having a hard time with the sweltering heat.  I have lost some tomatoes......some of the Creoles, which are my favorites and the very ones which should do well in heat.  Guess it could be another reason, but I am going to replant with some larger plants at Lowes.
If you have the opportunity to try real Creoles at the market, maybe you should try one

http://www.nola.com/homegarden/index.ssf/2014/03/the_truth_about_creole_tomatoe.html.

The peppers are doing well....even a pepper plant that survived the winter and is producing green peppers....although they are smaller than last year's crop.  I am using these to chop for seasoning.  The regular size if for stuffing.

The family summer reunion is next weekend, and I am still trying to decide what to bring.....perhaps jambalaya or another side dish or perhaps stuffed peppers using jambalaya as the stuffing in some of them.  My sister, the nun, is coming in for the reunion so I will be cleaning the guest room and pretending like I keep it clean and neat all the time.

Can you all tell that I miss you?  How about sharing your summer events/plans.   ::HelloKitty::

Hi Mere!   ::HelloKitty::

I miss you too!   ::MonkeyKiss::  

No real events going on here, just work and we've turned into a pet shelter I think.  We've always had a lot of strays, but it's getting out of hand.  My neighbors joke that once a dog finds their way down my driveway they never leave, lol.  After rescuing five puppies in mid May we were up to 12!  But sadly one of the puppies was killed in the road a week ago.   ::MonkeyTears::  Our outside dogs screen who can come down the drive though...the neighbors first alerted me about them...and I firmly told them I can't take anymore dogs!  Then we saw the puppies playing in a pasture near here, they were living in a culvert.  All of them were precious!  My DH who'd very sternly told me if you bring those dogs home, they are YOUR responsibility....walked back to our home and down the drive leading them like mother goose, and has taken care of them and played with them every day since.  He feeds them before he leaves at 5 every morning!   ::MonkeyHaHa::  Sometimes you get blessings you didn't even know you needed.    ::MonkeyAngel::

I know whatever dish you decide to make for the reunion will be scrumptious!

Hi Mere!

No special plans this summer except I am going to visit my son for a few days, which will be nice.  Weather has been beautiful in Southern California, not too hot. in the mid to upper 70's.  Still working part time.  Started exercising more now I'm up to 12 miles per day on the stationary bike and it's really makes a difference!   We don't have room for much of a garden but do have some flowers and I did plant garlic.  We also planted Milkweed to attract butterflies and we have two hummingbird feeders. 

We are down to one dog now but may look to add a rescue some time soon.   Petey is still as cute as ever and is almost 7 now!  Time goes by way too quickly! 
(http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a306/klaasend/klaasend001/ee82e7de-1bd4-468b-aff8-1f285e95ba0b_zps1ikdks9h.jpg)

The forum is so slow but I still edit Dana's daily commentary Monday-Friday and also his shows. 

Jambalawa sounds wonderful! 

TM sounds like you have a wonderful husband and lots of property for dogs!  It's a good thing we don't have more of a yard or we would be like you!  ::MonkeyCool::

Awwwwww, Petey!  ::MonkeyHeart:: ::MonkeyDogWalk3::

He is so cute!  We still have two JR's, they're a little older than Petey and thank goodness have chilled out some as they've gotten older.   ::MonkeyHaHa::

We love every one we've taken in, just wish we could afford them all!  It's crazy how expensive it can be, thankful for a vet that has a payment plan.  We have several acres, so there's lots of room.  The road is always a worry though, especially with puppies.

Klaas and TM......Oh my...I do remember when I had my first Cairn.  The vet told me he would become a lap dog when he was 12...!!!
I wish I were young enough to have a few still...but the cost and the size of the yard would be an issue.

TM.....what kind of dogs do you have?  When I was young, all I wanted were puppies....although twice a breeder offered to give me one of her older females who were no longer having pups.  Now I understand that it would be a nice thing....
growing old together....lol.

Summer plans are just thoughts for the moment.....I sold my Escape to my son-in-law after someone bashed in his
car, and he always liked Ford products....and the Escape could handle his trailer (for riding lawnmower and trips to
Lowes).  So guess what, I miss it....lol.  I am looking for another used car in good condition.

Klaas....I am amazed about your ability on the exercise bike.....12 miles is huge.  Bet your knees are in good shape!!

On to the dish for the family reunion.....I stuffed peppers today and then used some of the stuffing in rice for what we call dirty rice.  I have never liked the name. but the dish can be very good.  There is always one thing about these dishes....you just have to have good ground chuck or ground beef....and I was not so excited about this package
from local store......so I think I will be driving about 25 miles to a grocery which has a meat market in the back....and
great ground beef.  Do you remember when ground beef was a dollar or so a pound??  The one I just got was 2.5 pounds for $10...!!

Okay I woke in the middle night and guess I should sign off.  Thanks to you both.  Mere   ::HelloKitty::

Mere, I'd say we have quite a variety!   ::MonkeyHaHa:: ::dogwag::

Sheltie, Prissy (she'll be 12 in September)
Jack Russell's, Dieter & Sabre
Border Collie mix, Lily
Lab mix, Jasmine & Clementine
Black Mouth Cur, Toby
The puppies seem to be a mix of long bodied dog, not sure what breed on that part, lol, they all have shorter legs too, some also have beards like a wired haired terrier, one looks definitely dachshund, and one is catahoula colored, lol.  We've named them, Lil Blue, Harvey, Bretagne, and Bevo (she's the one that looks like a dachshund, she's burnt orange with white on her chest and tips of feet).  Harvey has stand up ears that look a little large for his body, lol.  They're all so sweet and precious, they just want all the love they can get!

 ::MonkeyHeart::

Clementine, she was in sad shape when she showed up here.  She'd been dumped, starving and had mange really bad.  I finally saw her after I'd heard her crying out back two nights in a row.  I thought it must be a dog that had been hit or was really sick or something, it was so pitiful!  But she was just hungry and the other dogs were keeping her away from the food!  She was almost feral, very shy of us.  I started putting a food bowl far away from the others especially for her, and after a few days she started letting us get closer to her.  One of her eyes is a brilliant blue, so pretty.  After a week here, she came in heat, so we took her in and had her spayed.  She was treated for the mange too, and is doing great now, she's still somewhat shy but will come to be petted with the others.  She and Jasmine have mothered the puppies so sweetly, it's heartwarming.  They lay down and play with them, but also watch out for them when they're out exploring.

I miss them too Sister.  I think once JSM left others stopped visiting her thread.  That's why I ended up closing that particular thread, why have a JSM thread without JSM.  Now poor JSM has gone through a devastating loss, I just hope that all those who became friends with her through this site have remained friends with her outside of this site.

I feel the same, Sister.  But I haven't been logging on regularly either. Trying to juggle a job and keeping my grandson.
How are your dogs?
I so very often wonder about 4 Donks too since she is in AL like me.  I hope she is doing well.
I can't even stay awake at night to watch the Olympics and this is my favorite thing to watch!

Dear Klaas....huge amounts of water on the entire area.... http://www.wwltv.com/  There were four weather alerts last night on my phone...
something new...!!!

There is a small creek behind the house that is more like a small river now.  The creek overflowed in March, but the "low point" on the subdivision is about two blocks away from me. 

I have been checking the "Hurricane/Storm List" and have what I
need for an evacuation.  The only thing is I am no longer the owner of an SUV......so I would need to go out by boat....lol.

I see that there will be rain continuing for days.  I am really in good shape this time.....electricity is on, have a loaf of bread, house is dry, got three weeks of meds, and the dog is exhausted from barking at the thunder....lol.

Will write again soon....and thanks.....Mere

Hello Klaas....first, phone and TV are up.  Many friends are affected now.  Imagine this....there are people who live in what is called a "no flood" zone.....so they have no flood insurance.....and now have two feet of water in their home.
One couple had to evacuate with their terriers and few day old puppies.

I have had flood insurance since it first became available.  It is about $300 a year.  With hurricanes and storms, it is
a necessity.  If you are in a flood zone, your bank/mortgage company requires it.  I also am in a no flood zone, but as you can see, I am sitting here waiting for water...!!!  My New Orleans children were in no flood zones for Katrina and their home was flooded to the attic for 4+ weeks.  LOL....can you tell I believe it flood insurance?   ::HelloKitty::

Anyhow....thanks for checking on me.....Mere

Mere, I'm glad the floods haven't touched your home and you are prepared. A lot of insurance companies did not cover homes in my area after hurricane Sandy because they said it was a "Surge" so they avoided a lot of payouts. I really thought the fix was in when they made that call.

Stay safe and thanks for the updates.

Klaas.....good morning.... ::HelloKitty::

I am so fortunate.  Water around me but none of it came into the subdivision.  I could not get out until yesterday
afternoon.  The sun was out and hundreds of people were out.  The parking lot at WalMart was filled...as was the store.

Most of the shoppers were from Denham Springs......a town that was totally flooded....although there are many towns affected.  I felt like a re-do of Katrina. The lady behind me in line at the Pharmacy had been in the store for two hours...and the store was closing at 6 p.m.  as their staff was affected and the trucks that could get through were half empty....or less.  She had that shocked look in her eyes.  She had lost everything.  As I moved to leave the Pharmacy, she hugged me.  All I needed were two meds so I was in and out quickly.....however I stopped at Winn-Dixie for
some grocery items.  It was less crowded, but there were many locals filling shopping carts.

When you see FEMA, you know what these people are about to go through.  Many had no time to get out of their house, no extra money and the ATMs were not working, no extra gas or enough meds.  Their banks are flooded as are the gas stations.  The lines for everything are soooo long....and yet each feels fortunate to have gotten out.

I could go on and on but I dont want to sound so depressing.  The sun is shining today, and I am fortunate to be
high and dry....16 feet above sea level...!!!

Hugs, Mere

Hi Mere (Klaas & San as well)

So glad to hear you were not flooded out of your home and are keeping safe and dry. I have a college friend in Baton Rouge that has kept me updated. She wasn't flooded but some of her family were - plus my son's new bride's family has relatives in Denham Springs that lost nearly everything.

I am taking the first real vacation I've had in five years, my years of traveling the country every week are now over. New wonderful job near my home, start next week and grateful for this new blessing. I lost my mother earlier this summer, two weeks prior to my son's wedding, so it's been a summer of ups and downs.

Hope you all are well, happy, and thriving.  ::MonkeyHeart::

Hi None......first I am so sorry to hear about your Mom.  You certainly cared for her for many years.  And then I am happy for son and new dil.....
Denham Springs did lose so much.

I am watching the Gulf right now and going to fill car with gas, get money from ATM, and get bags of ice for the refrigerator in garage.  Yesterday was the anniversary of Katrina.....and we were all here on SM at that time.  Time does fly....  You do have to plan ahead.  I wish I had a small motorhome instead of a car.

It sounds so wonderful to think that you no longer have to travel.  Don't know how you did that for so long.  Please keep in touch here when you can.

Klaas,

I do love my DIL very much. They are so in love which is wonderful to know they have each other.

I was going to post a photo but it won't embed, only shows the link? Perhaps I've forgotten the trick to posting a photo here?

I think my mother must have been the angel to help me find this new job, it actually happened just after she passed. The weekend post her funeral I was sitting outside in FL feeling sad, had to stay over the weekend due to a grumpy client and a butterfly landed on my forehead. Since that day butterflies are in my path daily......perhaps she and Rick are flying together.

I am jealous you are going to retire this year but also very happy for you Klaas. You deserve it !!!

Nonesuche,  I'm very sorry to hear about the passing of your mom.  You deserve a nice long vacation with all the traveling you have done.  Congratulations to your son and his new bride.  Nice to hear you got a job close to home and you don't have to travel anymore.  Enjoy the new job.


Thanks San, I will have to travel about 20% with this new job but that's manageable. It's a big job but one I'm ready for  and hopefully with a recession-proof Fortune 500 company. I am lucky to have this opportunity at my age.

How have you been San?

Hi Mere (Klaas & San as well)

So glad to hear you were not flooded out of your home and are keeping safe and dry. I have a college friend in Baton Rouge that has kept me updated. She wasn't flooded but some of her family were - plus my son's new bride's family has relatives in Denham Springs that lost nearly everything.

I am taking the first real vacation I've had in five years, my years of traveling the country every week are now over. New wonderful job near my home, start next week and grateful for this new blessing. I lost my mother earlier this summer, two weeks prior to my son's wedding, so it's been a summer of ups and downs.

Hope you all are well, happy, and thriving.  ::MonkeyHeart::

Hi None......first I am so sorry to hear about your Mom.  You certainly cared for her for many years.  And then I am happy for son and new dil.....
Denham Springs did lose so much.

I am watching the Gulf right now and going to fill car with gas, get money from ATM, and get bags of ice for the refrigerator in garage.  Yesterday was the anniversary of Katrina.....and we were all here on SM at that time.  Time does fly....  You do have to plan ahead.  I wish I had a small motorhome instead of a car.

It sounds so wonderful to think that you no longer have to travel.  Don't know how you did that for so long.  Please keep in touch here when you can.
Mere   ::HelloKitty::



Looks like I answered you inside of your note..... ::HelloKitty::

Mere,

Just please be safe and know you are always welcome to come visit with me  ::MonkeyKiss:: It's tragic to see LA hit again so hard as if Katrina weren't enough?

I think the travel expectations for consultants has gotten out of hand in recent years but it's a living, so glad I could even find work after the recession hit. I will however enjoy sleeping in my bed every night now !!

None - so sorry to hear about your mom, must have been very hard for you especially right before your son's wedding.  Congratulations on your son's marriage!  Hopefully you absolutely love your new DIL and hopefully, grandkids soon to come!

Job close to home!!!!!!!  Finally!!  I'm coming close to retiring completely.  Been working part time for the last 5 years and i think December may be when I hang up my hat.  I don't know how you did it, all that travel!

Enjoy your vacation and say Hi to "little None".

 ::MonkeyKiss::

Klaas,

I do love my DIL very much. They are so in love which is wonderful to know they have each other.

I was going to post a photo but it won't embed, only shows the link? Perhaps I've forgotten the trick to posting a photo here?

I think my mother must have been the angel to help me find this new job, it actually happened just after she passed. The weekend post her funeral I was sitting outside in FL feeling sad, had to stay over the weekend due to a grumpy client and a butterfly landed on my forehead. Since that day butterflies are in my path daily......perhaps she and Rick are flying together.

I am jealous you are going to retire this year but also very happy for you Klaas. You deserve it !!!





To post photos now the photo needs to be in photobucket or one of the other online sites.  Must be a URL to post. 

So happy you love your DIL!  I love butterflies!  We plant milkweed in our small garden for them! 

None - I'm well beyond normal retirement age so it's time.  I'll likely continue to work for them from home updating the website, adding new items, etc but likely only a couple days a week.

Thanks Klaas, I did try posting the photo with a link to my flickr account but when I hit "preview" only the link showed even when I used the picture brackets? So...I just changed my profile photo to the photo I wanted to post. It's my fave from the wedding...

I will probably work until 70 if they let me just to qualify for a pension! I also think my "busy mind" won't take retirement so well......I think your situation is ideal to be able to work from home and also only part-time!

Hi Mere!  We're having a small group for dinner and I'm cooking but we do the turkey on the BBQ which makes it a lot easier.  I buy canned gravy and stove top dressing  So the only thing I really have to make is the vegetable dish, mashed potatoes, yams and I heat up some rolls.  I did bake a couple of pumpkin pies last night.  There will only be 5 us though so won't be too bad.

Hope you have a great time with your daughter and son in law!

  ::HelloKitty::  Amazing Thanksgiving dinner....!!!  Nothing like local southern cooks in the kitchen.  There was a choice of either a served platter or an all you can eat buffet.  I had a platter and took half of it home.  Some at my table took the buffet.  Everyone was happy about their choice.  The platter had slices of turkey, cranberries, yams, mashed potatoes, gravy, oyster dressing, corn and green beans.  Yum.

After it was all over, I realized that the conversation was about family and friends.....and no politics...!!!  The only down side of going out is that there are no left overs for turkey gumbo.  Hard to believe that Christmas is in a month. 
The tradition is to start pulling out Christmas decorations today...

Klaas...I have never had turkey on a BBQ.  I bet it is delicious.  Your dinner sounds wonderful.
texasmom.....my daughter has taken over Christmas. I bet your son and DIL were wonderful hosts/chefs.

Need to stop as my computer is acting up badly.  Hugs.... ::HelloKitty::

Please keep our family in your prayers through this very difficult time.  We lost our youngest daughter Wednesday, just after turning 28 on Monday.  She was shot and it's under investigation.  Thank You.😰😢😢

Looks like your photobucket is wanting you to sign up and pay for premium, you must have hit the limit.  You need a URL and there are other sites you can upload photos to and get a URL link to paste here.  Here's another free site you can upload to get the url one at a time:  http://imgur.com/upload

TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE SUN.................................

Full tank of gas......................Done
Grocery shopping...................Done (even though the shelves were about cleaned out)
Cell phone charged.................Done
Camera charged.....................Done
Got our solar glasses...............Done

Got my front porch cleaned off and the glider is ready to go in the morning.  The northern part of our city is not in the path for full totality.  We are about 8 miles south of there and we will see about 1minute 48seconds of total eclipse.  It is crazy everywhere this will occur.  Our hotel rooms in this area are going for $860 for 2 nights (2 night minimum).  Hotels appear to be full right now.  Local people are renting their homes out for $2000 a night and believe it or not they had no problem renting them.  It is just crazy.  The university planetarium will have a viewing and the kids just came back into town so about 10,000 of them will be viewing it.  Schools are out because of the traffic problems.  The aviation park (close to me) will be having a showing and all the roads leading to it (ours included) are expected to be locked down and not moving.  The interstate and parkway are expected to come to a complete halt before it even starts.

Anyone want to come visit me tomorrow?   ::monkeyflag3:: ::MonkeyDance:: ::MonkeyDance:: ::MonkeyDance:: ::MonkeyDance::

I would love to visit you.  We have not connected in a long time.  However ... all the drama is too much for this 70 year old.  Donning welding glasses ... hubby and I will be sitting in lawn chairs in our back yard at 10:30 AM PT observing the historical event.  If I drank ... I would be sipping a Spanish Coffee.  I got high on three Keg size a number of years back.  Spanish coffee tastes soooo good.  Hey ...

Thanks Janet.  No alcohol for us.  This occurs about 1:15 in the afternoon and that is too early for me to be celebrating.  Me and hubby will plant ourselves on our front porch with a open field in front of us and we have no plans to leave the roost.  Too many crazies out there during this time.

About 30 minutes away, looks like about 1/4 has occurred, looks like a hunk of cheese with the top part bitten out of it.  It is dim light now, real errie quiet, no birds singing, wind blowing, temps falling.  On my way outside to sit on the front porch to take it in.  We have only 1min 38sec for totality so no pics from me.  It is wild watching this.

Awesome is all I can say.  The sky got completely dark, could see it without glasses for about a minute, I have about 4 hummingbirds that went crazy flying in circles running into each other.  They were amazing to watch.  Everything else got very quiet and then neighborhood kids starting setting off fireworks and yelling.  We live on a busy road but cars stopped at side of road and got out to watch.  I loved it.  Too much excitement for this retired person.

Mere, next time you go visit your old home you need to stop by here.  Hope you are doing good Mere and loving your new home.  So good to know you are close to your family.

I am so sorry to hear about your daughter.  I rarely even come here anymore but saw your post and signed in to answer you.
When! a bullet enters the brain it can bounce around in the skull and cause the injuries you describe and others.  The lump you describe is probably where a piece of the skull was misplaced or even the bullet itself lodged.
If you don't want to talk about it, I understand, but I am curious to know how this happened.

Hello to monkeys.

Klaas.....that is their location.  I heard that TE went over and got their grandkids out of the flooded area.
It is hard to watch this for hours and hours, but I have family in Katy, TX and my sister is in San Antonio.
I wonder if they realize what they are facing.  I remember the houses filled with water for 6 weeks and absolutely
nothing could be salvaged.  The water became toxic with gas, oil, chemicals from vehicles.  The grass was gone.
There were no birds or insects.  There were no trees, plants, bushes....  Everything was dead.

My kids had to knock down their house.....and then found that the ground would be affected with the toxins for some time so they sold the property "äs is".....and moved north of Lake Pontchartrain.

I think of the hours my daughter spent in lines for everything.  The Post Office was dispensing mail at one location and everyone in the whole area stood in line....she waited four hours. 

The paperwork for FEMA never ends.  Same for insurance.  I guess same for everything. There is a box of Katrina papers that is still in the closet. SIL and daughter both lost jobs as the businesses were flooded.  Daughter became employed about 90 miles away....and still commutes.

It took them 8 months to find a new home.....having moved 8 times to various locations.  All of the realestate was priced sky high.  But....they love where they are....out in the country in a small town.  SIL is retired and renovating the house.  DIL loves job.

I am a mile from them.  Can you tell how this affects us all for so many years?  There should be a book to help people through it.  Hugs, Mere   ::HelloKitty::

Good morning, Mere!   ::HelloKitty::

Thankful to be safe and dry here so far.  I was thinking so many of the same things last night as I watched the coverage.  One family I know that got out of Houston before the flood were told to go on their vacation as planned because it would be at least three weeks before an insurance adjuster would even talk to them.  They filed early.  Their house was built 50 years ago, and had never flooded.  They're mourning possessions left behind, not making sure things were put up higher, etc.  They're young, they don't understand yet.  But they will when they go home with their little ones.  It's sad.  Yes, there should be a book to help them.  Hugs, backatcha!

Happy Thanksgiving to you too!  Was way too hot here yesterday to be running the oven all day.  It was 90 both 11/22 and 11/23, a bit cooler today but not much.  That's the 2nd time in the last 2 months I got stuck cooking a turkey in the oven when we wanted to BBQ it.  When it's really hot here it's usually very still and no wind makes it hard to charcoal BBQ.    Still, everything turned out great and we had a nice time.

Klaas, glad you had a good Thanksgiving.  Wow, 90's. Is that unusual for this time of the year?  We had a great day.  My husband's b'day fell on Thanksgiving this year so I fixed his dinner today instead of yesterday.  2 days of good food! 

Mere, hope you had a great day.  We are heading to Gatlinburg in the next week of so.  Going to take the trolley all over to see the Christmas lights.  It should be pretty this year.  Last year it was on fire.  Amazing how they have come back to life.

Klaas, thought of you this morning after seeing the horrible fires out your way.  Are you and yours O.K.?  Stay safe to everyone out there.  Hate to see the burning fires, reminds me of Gatlinburg last year.

 ::HelloKitty:: ::HelloKitty::

Popped in the check on Klaas too!  Hope she and all other California monkeys are out of harm's way! 

Just just some video of the fires, so devastating!   ::MonkeyTears::


Hi TM.  Each time I check in on TV it appears those fires are getting more and more out of control.  Like you I hope all is well.

Same here, Blue Moon.  It's terrifying to even think of being in the path of some of what I've seen.   ::MonkeyShocked:: ::MonkeyNoNo::

Klaas, sign in and let us know you're safe and sound asap, please!   ::MonkeyCool::

Nut44, have you heard from Klaas? 

I'll email her in the morning if she doesn't post by then.

 ::HelloKitty::  Sorry, Blue Moon, meant to check in earlier and got busy with other things!

I remembered last night to check her profile and see when she'd been in the forum last and she'd been here early yesterday morning, so I didn't worry about sending the email this morning.  Just checked again and it says she was in the forum early this morning too.  So that made me feel a little better!  I just emailed her anyway though and I'll let you know if I hear back from her.

I'm here and fine, no fires near me.  I've just been busy trying to get all my Christmas stuff done, seems like each year time flies by faster! 

I do have friends that had to evacuate in the Lilac fire down in San Diego county.  They live in Oceanside and were on the edge of the mandatory evacuation area last night.  They are back home now though so hopefully the worst is over.  The fires up in L.A. and Ventura counties are horrible. 

Here's some photos of the Lilac fire:  http://fox5sandiego.com/2017/12/08/photos-lilac-fire-devestaion/

That is so frightening.  I can not even imagine.  I saw the pictures of people driving through the fires in the mountains.  Just inferno's.  So glad you are out of harm's way.  The fires appear to be wide spread.  Are they scattered or are they in the same locations?

Hi, I need everyone’s help.  My daughter was murdered in June in Independence, Mo by who we believe to be Donald R Greer.  Any research on him would be appreciated.  He had felonies on his records and now they have disappeared.  Police said suicide, we hired our own Investigators that said it was a homicide.  Police are covering something up.  We were also told he died in December but nothing comes up he is deceased.   ::MonkeyNoNo:: ::MonkeyTears::

Hi KCJackie!   ::HelloKitty::

I just saw this tonight and started looking around.  How old is he or would he have been?  Any other additional information about him you can add would be helpful in the process of elimination. 

Praying you find answers and peace.  I'm so sorry.   ::MonkeyNoNo:: ::MonkeyTears::

He was born in April 1950

Found some older charges here in Baltimore Md.

I did note a race difference in one record, thinking it was an error?  Unless there was a white guy and black guy with the same name and birthdate living at the same address.

TY TexasMom!!  He is white, he is supposedly dead but I'm not finding that in extensive searches that list deaths. ::MonkeyNoNo::

Emily, the reporter said she was not going to touch on all points on Monday.  There will be follow up stories and maybe a 30 minute special in May.  It's like I've came full circle ::MonkeyTears:: maybe it's time to start a thread on her? Your thoughts?????

You're welcome!   ::MonkeyKiss::

I'll be glad to start a thread for her if you want me to.  My only reservation in doing so is that with the interviews etc. you wouldn't just be KCJackie here anymore.  I definitely don't want to do anything that will cause you any more grief.  Maybe check with Klaas and let her help make the decision?

I'm so glad your story is getting out, we're standing beside you every step of the way!   ::MonkeyCool::

Jackie, I can't find anything on Greer.  I have gone through Ancestry, FamilySearch, Newspapers.  If he is dead he should show up somewhere with an obit.  I am so sorry this has happened to you and your family.  Your daughters picture shows a very beautiful girl.  She was so young.  I send to you my prayers and pray you find the answers on what happened to her.  I will share that clip on FB as I do have some family in Missouri and maybe you can get it started on FB and Twitter.

Thank You TexasMom and BlueMoon  ::MonkeyHeart::

I've even used been verified.com and my daughter was listed as deceased before her funeral and he is not.

My daughter got in to drugs after being raped by 2 guys that ruffled her at the age of 20 she was a virgin.  Don was her drug supplier, I played the tough love for the last 6 months of her life - I wish I wouldn't have.  Her toxicology came back clean.  She was working and going to get back with her ex that we love to death and I just didn't know if I could believe her.

It makes me sick ::MonkeyTears:: ::MonkeyTears:: ::MonkeyTears::

I do not mind if a thread is started - all our stuff is already out there.

You were doing what you thought best to help her, that's all we can do sometimes, as much as it hurts.

I've searched and searched for an obit for him too, nothing.

I'll start a thread this morning, may take me a little while, still on my first cup of coffee.

Edit to add:

I started a thread here:  http://scaredmonkeys.net/index.php?topic=16211.msg1617575#new

My guess is he has changed his name-he is not deceased.  He should have showed up in current newspapers if he was dead.  I even did searches all over the US and nothing with that birth date or name.  He should show up in Ancestry with a birth-heck even I am in the birth records.  Do you know where is was born-was it Missouri?  Or was he born somewhere else and only came to Missouri later on? 
Don't beat yourself up.  No one is ever prepared for what lies ahead in a situation like this.  The "if only" will eat you up alive. If Don was her supplier have you asked or checked with the FBI-they are really coming down hard on drug dealers.  Maybe he is a target of the FBI.  That's why I suggest he has changed his name, maybe even fled the area.

Jackie Schroer  Thankfully he is Dead - December 9th - confirmed by funeral home. Someone got the chair out, all of her belongings down to even toiletries. I think she was suppose to be next but police arrived.
