Two beef patties, two slices of cheese. That’s it. No lettuce. No onions. No bun. No nuthin’. Word on the street is that this item was created for people to feed to their dogs at one of the original In-N-Out’s with walk-up service. That sounds plausible to me. Coolest sounding item on the menu. Try tricking a friend into ordering one Animal Style.

KNORR SPINACH DIP
Printed from COOKS.COM

Read more about it at www.cooks.com/rec/view/0,181,144163-236204,00.html
Content Copyright © 2010 Cooks.com - All rights reserved.

1 (10 oz.) pkg. frozen chopped spinach, thawed (do not use fresh)
1 1/2 c. sour cream
1 c. mayonnaise (I use Hellmann's)
1 (4 oz.) pkg. Knorr vegetable soup mix
1 (8 oz.) can water chestnuts, finely chopped
3 green onions, finely chopped
Loaf of pumpernickel bread (I use sour dough round loaf)

Squeeze spinach until dry. In medium bowl, stir together spinach, sour cream and soup mix. Add finely chopped water chestnuts and green onions. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours or overnight. Cut slice from top of round loaf of pumpernickel bread, hollow out loaf to leave shell to contain dip. Use bread removed from shell and top slice to cut into bite size pieces. Butter inside of bread shell, fill loaf with dip and place on platter and surround with bread pieces and variety of raw vegetables. Then...GET OUT OF THE WAY!!! After the dip is eaten, enjoy the dip soaked bread shell as well.

KNORR SPINACH DIP
Printed from COOKS.COM

Read more about it at www.cooks.com/rec/view/0,181,144163-236204,00.html
Content Copyright © 2010 Cooks.com - All rights reserved.

1 (10 oz.) pkg. frozen chopped spinach, thawed (do not use fresh)
1 1/2 c. sour cream
1 c. mayonnaise (I use Hellmann's)
1 (4 oz.) pkg. Knorr vegetable soup mix
1 (8 oz.) can water chestnuts, finely chopped
3 green onions, finely chopped
Loaf of pumpernickel bread (I use sour dough round loaf)

Squeeze spinach until dry. In medium bowl, stir together spinach, sour cream and soup mix. Add finely chopped water chestnuts and green onions. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours or overnight. Cut slice from top of round loaf of pumpernickel bread, hollow out loaf to leave shell to contain dip. Use bread removed from shell and top slice to cut into bite size pieces. Butter inside of bread shell, fill loaf with dip and place on platter and surround with bread pieces and variety of raw vegetables. Then...GET OUT OF THE WAY!!! After the dip is eaten, enjoy the dip soaked bread shell as well.


This dip is made by someone in the family for every get-together! We have always used the round hawaiian bread with it & it's delicious! Of course I could eat that dip with just a big spoon!!!  ::MonkeyWink::

One Christmas Eve, a frenzied young man ran into a pet shop looking for an unusual Christmas gift for his wife. The shop owner suggested a parrot, named Chet, which could sing famous Christmas carols. This seemed like the perfect gift.

"How do I get him to sing?" The young man asked, excitedly.

"Simply hold a lighted match directly under his feet," was the shop owner's reply.

The shop owner held a lighted match under the parrot's left foot. Chet began to sing: "Jingle Bells! Jingle Bells! ..." The shop owner then held another match under the parrot's right foot. Then Chet's tune changed, and the air was filled with: " Silent Night, Holy Night..."

The young man was so impressed that he paid the shop-keeper and ran home as quickly as he could with Chet under his arm. When the wife saw her gift she was overwhelmed.

"How beautiful!" She exclaimed, "Can he talk?"

"No," the young man replied, "But he can sing. Let me show you."

So the young man whipped out his lighter and placed it under Chet's left foot, as the shop-keeper had shown him, and Chet crooned: "Jingle Bells! Jingle bells!..." The man then moved the lighter to Chet's right foot, and out came: "Silent Night, Holy night..."

The wife, her face filled with curiosity, then asked, "What if we hold the lighter between his legs?"

The man did not know. "Let's try it," he answered, eager to please his wife.

So they held the lighter between Chet's legs. Chet twisted his face, cleared his throat, and the little parrot sang out loudly like it was the performance of his life:

"Chet's nuts roasting on an open fire...."

 Night night, and take care of yourself - and your kitty!  I hope she feels better.   ::HelloKitty::

starwynn:  ::MonkeyKiss:: I don't know what's going to happen to him. He isn't doing well. Thank you for your concern.  ::MonkeyAngel::

Take care of lil kitty ::MonkeyAngel:: I found one that had been abandonded at birth, the vert said he was not even 24 hrs old when I found him at our office. I snapped him up (gently) put him on our scale at the office for postage and he only weighed .25 ounces, so called my daughter and had her go ASAP to buy KRM, heating blanket and bottles and tiny nipples and fed him every 2 hrs and turned his heating pad on, I even took him back to work with me on certain days when no one was home so he could be fed often. Wow, 2 weeks later I had him up to .4 ounces and he not is the best kitty we ever had, spoiled no doubt and loves to undecorate the Christmas tree ::MonkeyDevil:: I hope these pics give you hope and will say a prayer and have kitty say a prayer for him.......I can't help but think how much Kyron would love the kittens.

Edit -  Island, I've moved your post and pictures from Kyron's Missing Person Thread to Musings.  A little OT or brief convo is okay, but this was a lot, with the six  ot pics for an MP thread.  Cute kitten, though.   ::MonkeyWink::  MuffyBee

California, Utah awash in rain, snow and mud
By the CNN Wire Staff
STORY HIGHLIGHTS
NEW: California declare an emergency in 6 countiesNEW:Rockville, Utah, residents allowed to return Roads into two national parks are shut down, a park lodge manager saysA record number of distraught Southern California motorists call AAA for help
Los Angeles (CNN) -- Southern California faces another water-logged day Wednesday with renewed threats of flash flooding, especially in San Diego county.

The National Weather Service is forecasting rain rainfall rates of up to 2 inches per hour, which could prompt flooding in the San Bernardino, Santa Ana and Palomar Mountains, and along the Orange County coastal plains.

On Tuesday, storm-weary Californians slogged through another day of record-breaking snow, rain and flooding from a series of storms that prompted an emergency declaration from the state's governor.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's proclamation covers Kern, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Luis Obispo and Tulare counties in southern California. The declaration warns that the forecast calls for "extraordinary and continuing rainfall" that is likely to cause more flooding and landslides in the region and authorizes state assistance to local authorities.

The five-day rain total has topped 10 inches in many areas, with much heavier amounts in some locales. More than 21 inches has fallen on Twin Peaks in San Bernardino county, with Twin Creek receiving nearly 20 inches.

In Los Angeles County, meanwhile, authorities ordered the evacuation of more than 230 homes in two neighborhoods out of fear of debris flows.

But in southwestern Utah, a dam that authorities had feared was in imminent danger of giving way to floodwaters was found to be in stronger condition than previously believed, said Marc Mortensen, a spokesman for Washington County.

The roughly 800 residents of the towns of Virgin and Rockville were allowed to return to their homes Tuesday night, Mortensen said. Engineers will monitor the dam, located on the Virgin River, and conduct more tests on Wednesday, when high water flows are expected again, he said.

Utah Gov. Gary Herbert said he was prepared to declare a state of emergency in the south, where floodwaters also washed out at least one bridge. But as of Tuesday afternoon, Utah officials said the required benchmarks for an emergency declaration had not been reached, and Herbert hadn't received a request from local authorities to issue one.

"We are closely monitoring the activity in southern Utah, and praying for the safety of all of the area's residents," Herbert said in a statement from his office.

In Southern California, where the car is king, a record number of motorists called their local AAA to report dead batteries, a need for emergency tows and crashed vehicles, said spokesman Jeffrey Spring of the Automobile Club of Southern California.

More than 25,000 distraught motorists made calls for help on Monday, the largest number ever in a 24-hour period for the AAA's largest U.S. affiliate, Spring said.

"We're in Southern California, and we don't have a lot of experience driving in the rain, and some people drive through high puddles not realizing what kind of effect it can have on a car," Spring said. "If the engine gets splashed and gets wet, it can stop the car right there."

Spring said AAA was "able to serve the majority of members in 30 minutes," although he added, "I'm sure there were a number of people who had to wait longer than that."

Monday's call volume surpassed the prior record of about 22,000 on October 9, 2008, when a heat wave and the scorching Santa Ana winds disabled many automobiles, Spring said. Monday's weather -- torrential rains -- had opposite conditions, he said.

"Batteries are fickle things if they're not at full strength," Spring said. "Hot weather can affect them and weather like this."

In the southern Sierra Nevada, Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks were effectively shut down Monday and Tuesday because flooding, mudslides and rockslides closed the two roads into the parks, said Brandy Frederich, assistant general manager of Wuksachi Lodge in Sequoia National Park.

In fact, the 102-room lodge was vacant Tuesday after the last couple of guests departed Monday, Frederich said.

"Well, we're all up here," Frederich said of the hotel staff. "We would be open if the road is open. It's gorgeous right now. Up here, it finally turned to snow."

But the rain at lower elevations washed out the two roads, she said.

Meanwhile, residents were keeping a nervous eye on hillsides, wary of the potential for mudslides.

Donna McLaughlin of La Canada Flintridge lost her home last year when a 10-foot wall of mud came barreling down a hillside. She just moved back in October.

"Here we go again," she told CNN affiliate KABC.

But this time, the city has bolted down protective concrete barriers and attached them to each other in the area in an effort to guard against mudslides. McLaughlin said the barriers were not bolted down or attached last year. "Had they done that, our house would have at least been saved," she told KABC.

Deborah Craigo, 39, who lives in the Mojave Desert community of Hesperia, California, said monsoon conditions have inundated the arid landscape.

Fire stations are even offering sandbags to residents who want to shore up defenses to their homes, said Craigo, who is also a CNN iReporter.

"It's been raining from two days ago and it just has not stopped. They closed a lot of the roads down," said Craigo, a mother and college student. "It's pretty bad now. We have a riverbed in back of our house, and two days ago it was completely bone dry. And then within two days the riverbed is completely full."

In Orange County, California, four hikers whose truck was stranded by floodwater between two canyon roads were airlifted out Tuesday morning and were reported to be doing well, CNN affiliate KTLA reported. The four had been stranded overnight. Five other people were rescued in the same area Monday evening, the station said. A bulldozer was used to help get them to safety, it said.

Elsewhere, 40 horses were rescued from Riverside County as water rose to heights of about 4 feet, affiliate KCAL reported.

The storm is actually a series of storms originating in the Pacific, known as the "Pineapple Express" because of their origin near the Hawaiian Islands. They have brought heavy snow to the higher elevations, with torrential rainfall in lower spots, and high winds. Total rainfall has approached 10 inches in some areas.

Numerous roads were closed because of mudslides or flooding. On Monday, nearly 2,000 residents near McFarland, about 40 miles north of Lamont, were evacuated because of what fire department spokesman Sean Collins called "major flooding." The evacuation order was later lifted after debris was cleared from a backed-up creek.

Meanwhile, as much as 13 feet of snow fell in the Sierra Nevada, according to CNN Meteorologist Rob Marciano.

"We get a lot of snow here, but not usually this much in a 24-hour period," said CNN iReporter Sarah Butner, who is visiting family in Mammoth Lakes, California. The area has received about 9 feet of snow, she said Monday.

"The decks have a good 5 feet of snow on them," she said. One area of the neighborhood was also flooded, she said.

In Arvin, California, near Lamont, Caliente Creek washed away land near one home. Hugo Figueroa, who lives there, said he and his family were told to evacuate, CNN affiliate KBAK reported. Flooding washed out several roads near Lamont and Arvin, the station reported.

High winds also whipped much of the state, particularly at high elevations. Peak wind gusts reached 152 mph in Alpine Meadows summit in northern California, the weather service reported.

Mudslides forced officials to close a portion of State Route 1, also known as the Pacific Coast Highway, in Ventura County from just north of the Los Angeles County line to Oxnard, according to the California Department of Transportation. The Pacific Coast Highway was also closed north of Santa Barbara due to flooding.

A mudslide also closed a portion of State Route 41 in San Luis Obispo County. A stretch of State Route 34 in the Oxnard area was closed because of flooding.

The danger of mudslides will probably intensify, CNN meteorologist Ivan Cabrera said.

"A serious situation will develop now with the mudslide danger that will continue over the next several days," Cabrera said Monday.

Another danger: Falling trees. Erik Budzinski of Orange told CNN affiliate KABC he is heartsick after his vintage 1970 Ford F-150 truck was crushed by a large tree Monday night. "It was my baby," he said.

Budzinski said he was inside his home and heard the wood cracking and popping as the tree fell. "I just knew it," he said.

Still, many southern Californians were not deterred from holiday shopping by the rain, although the rain-slicked roads had led to thousands of accidents.

"It's a little scary to be driving with this much rain, but I'm going to deal with it," Adriena Young told KABC. "It's better than a drought."

CNN's Jeremy Ryan,Sara Pratley, Nick Valencia, Michael Martinez, Ed Payne and Daphne Sashin contributed to this report.

Merry Christmas!

The Detroit Zoo got an early Christmas present this year, in the form of a small monkey seized from a Southfield home.

Southfield Police said they received a call on Dec. 6 that a family living on Spring River had a marmoset named Pearl in their home. For the most part, exotic or wild animals are illegal within city limits, and while appearing sweet-natured, marmosets can be aggressive.

Pearl, who had been living with the family for three years, came to Michigan via Florida. The family willingly turned over the small monkey, due to a possible move.

Southfield Police said they received a call on Dec. 6 that a family living on Spring River had a marmoset named Pearl in their home. For the most part, exotic or wild animals are illegal within city limits, and while appearing sweet-natured, marmosets can be aggressive.

Pearl, who had been living with the family for three years, came to Michigan via Florida. The family willingly turned over the small monkey, due to a possible move.




What a cute little thing she is.  ::MonkeyAngel::

That is the cutest monkey I have ever seen. All that long hair or fur or whatever.

My Fibromyalgia stiffness and morning headaches have been helped. If I lived in an area that needed full time heat in the winter, I'd buy this for it cuts heating bills and gives you toasty toes, back et al. Dog likes it. Cat likes it when not sleeping on my new coat. Oh, here comes rain again! Ugh.

Good news is that the rain should stop today and we will be clear for a few days!

MERIDIAN — The scene at a home at 788 Murphy Road late this afternoon was too much to take for even hardened investigators with the Lauderdale County Sheriff's Department. LCSD Chief Dep. Ward Calhoun said two investigators, after veiwing the unthinkable acts that led to the death of two adults and two children in an apparent murder-suicide, had to be relieved from duty after they tried to help process the scene. "They are fathers of small children themselves and this was just too much for them," said Calhoun. "It is hard on all of us especially this time of year." Sheriff Billy Sollie said the names of all those killed are being withheld. He said the two adults were the father and mother of the two children but were not married. Sollie said the father of the deceased male found the carnage around 4:30 p.m. when he came home from work. Lauderdale County Coroner Clayton Cobler placed the time of death around 7:30 a.m. today. Sollie said he was not prepared to say who did the actual shooting and would wait until the investigation had moved further before he released that information. Sollie said the father and his son lived at the home and it appeared the mother and children had just recently been living at the residence. Sollie said the mother's body was found in the living room while one of the children was found in the hallway. The father and the other child were found in a bedroom. Sollie said multiple shots had been fired from a gun that was recovered at the scene. Although there was clear evidence some of the victims had been shot, Sollie said all of the bodies were going to be transported to Jackson for autopsies to determine the exact cause of death. "This is just a terrible thing to happen anytime of the year but for it to be now makes it that much more difficult for this family and others," Sollie said.

How many Monkeys out there are looking for a white Christmas? We've got a pretty good shot at it this year:   ::MonkeyDance::



ME, ME, ME.   ::piggy::  ::MonkeySkate::

First time since I think they said 1993.  Looking forward to it.

Got the news yesterday from my niece she is going to come here to go to college.  Looking forward to having
her here in her fathers home town. I told her I didn't want to get any calls on her partying up on the Hill and she said not to worry she was a good girl.  Ha! Ha! We will see.  ::MonkeyCheer4::

IBE..... I've been holding on to my SM Christmas Cup too. Klaas did such a wonderful job with it. I've thought about Peaches many times over Christmas. I miss her dearly and hope her family is doing well.

I hope you're feeling better in no time and that the rain moves out quickly! It's been snowing here since late Christmas Eve. It's beautiful and I was thrilled to have a White Christmas. It's not bitterly cold, so I may try to shovel the driveway, and that would make it easier for me to really enjoy it. I'm doing better but have been pretty sick, so I'm still debating it.  ::MonkeyWink::

Christmas was good to me this year, I bought my own presents.

Day after Christmas was awfully cold and wet... not so many bargains.

Though I managed to buy these delicious reduced-price cookies in Walmart... the Knott's Berry Farm raspberry shortbread dipped in chocolates. The crumbs are all over my keyboard, but... they are yummy!

Good thing I only bought a can of them, or my diet would've been gone to ell!

Though, I'm thinking on going back later on today to see if there are any left over.

We brought this home the Saturday before Christmas. What was I thinking?

I have a handicapped son and a divorced daughter living with me, and my son wanted another chihuahua. We had one that passed away in 2001. They both work, so I am here with the animals. My daughter has a 12 lb. Pompoo that I hoped would adopt the puppy which, by the way, weighs 2lb. 4 oz. I must have been dreaming, Missy wants nothing to do with the puppy and hides all day.
On the other hand, I have a 20 lb (the last time we weighed him) Maine Coon Cat that loves him. They chase each other all over the house and when that cat starts running and jumping, it sounds like the house is falling down.

                   UNDENIABLE   ADULT    TRUTHS



 
1.  I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.

2. Nothing  is worse more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap  when I was younger.

4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

5. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

6. Was learning cursive really necessary?

7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on # 5.  I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told  you how the person died.

9. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.

10. Bad decisions make good stories.

11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a  moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after  Blue Ray?  I don't want to have to restart my collection, again.

13. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page  technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.

14. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

15. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

16. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lite than Kay.

17. I wish Google Maps  had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.

18. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between  boredom and hunger.

19. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?"  Before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?

20. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!

21. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.

22. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.

23. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell  phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'd bet everyone can      find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about  1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time.

24.  The first testicular guard "The Cup" was used in Hockey in 1874 and the first helmet was used in 1974.  That means it only took 100 years for men to realize that their brain is also important!

Ladies...Quit Laughing

200,000 People Affected by Flooding in Australia


Published December 30, 2010 | Associated Press

advertisement

More than 200,000 people have been affected by relentless flooding in northeast Australia, with the flood zone now stretching over an area bigger than France and Germany combined, officials said Friday.

Thousands of homes and businesses across Queensland state have been inundated with water after days of pounding rain caused swollen rivers to overflow. The entire population of two towns was forced to evacuate as water swamped their communities, cutting off roads and devastating crops.

Heavy rains and flooding in northeast Australia is common during the southern hemisphere summer, but the scope of the damage from the recent downpours is extremely unusual, Queensland state Premier Anna Bligh said.

"This is without a doubt a tragedy on an unprecedented scale," Bligh told Australian Broadcasting Corp. "We now have 22 towns or cities that are either substantially flooded or isolated because the roads have been cut off to them. That represents some 200,000 people spanning an area that's bigger than the size of France and Germany combined."

Thousands of people have been evacuated from their homes this week. In the central Queensland town of Emerald, around 1,000 people were evacuated in the last 24 hours.

The town was facing the prospect of food shortages, power outages and sewage-contaminated floodwaters, county mayor Peter Maguire said. Three evacuation centers have been set up to help displaced residents.

Weather across most of the state was drier on Friday, but river levels were still rising in some areas as high waters worked their way toward the ocean. Bligh warned that drenched communities could be stuck under water for more than a week, and clean up efforts were expected to cost billions of dollars.

Queensland launched a disaster relief fund for flood victims with 1 million Australian dollars ($1 million) in state money. Prime Minister Julia Gillard pledged to match that amount with federal funds.

Gillard was touring flooded communities on Friday.

Christmas was good to me this year, I bought my own presents.

Day after Christmas was awfully cold and wet... not so many bargains.

Though I managed to buy these delicious reduced-price cookies in Walmart... the Knott's Berry Farm raspberry shortbread dipped in chocolates. The crumbs are all over my keyboard, but... they are yummy!

Good thing I only bought a can of them, or my diet would've been gone to ell!

Though, I'm thinking on going back later on today to see if there are any left over.

:D






MMMMMMmmmmm!  Cookies! :smt106

Always bring an extra cookie, or 6 for the bee!   ::bee::  She is sweet!

My dog watches TV and thinks what he is seeing is real.  He loves watching animals.  If you click on the picture it should go to the video.


Deleted video.  Will try again tomorrow to make it work.

Here is the link to the video.  At one point he went for the TV and put his paw and pushed the entire screen.

We brought this home the Saturday before Christmas. What was I thinking?

I have a handicapped son and a divorced daughter living with me, and my son wanted another chihuahua. We had one that passed away in 2001. They both work, so I am here with the animals. My daughter has a 12 lb. Pompoo that I hoped would adopt the puppy which, by the way, weighs 2lb. 4 oz. I must have been dreaming, Missy wants nothing to do with the puppy and hides all day.
On the other hand, I have a 20 lb (the last time we weighed him) Maine Coon Cat that loves him. They chase each other all over the house and when that cat starts running and jumping, it sounds like the house is falling down.

It sounds like a whole lot of fun to me, well, except for Missy.  I think if you give her time, she will get over being an only dog.  Sounds like your life is complete.

Does your son like his job?  What about your daughter?  What a great Christmas present, it is nice to add to your family.

I'll bet it was hard to work with. I've crotcheted, but never with the fine stuff that is anywhere near that soft. The blanket looks like baby clouds! It suits her so well, Klaas! She just seems all sweet and so feminine. She's a picture of an angel and I just melt at her smile!

"We now have 22 towns or cities that are either substantially flooded or isolated because the roads have been cut off to them. That represents some 200,000 people spanning an area that's bigger than the size of France and Germany combined."

Thousands of people have been evacuated from their homes this week. In the central Queensland town of Emerald, around 1,000 people were evacuated in the last 24 hours.

The town was facing the prospect of food shortages, power outages and sewage-contaminated floodwaters, county mayor Peter Maguire said. Three evacuation centers have been set up to help displaced residents.

Weather across most of the state was drier on Friday, but river levels were still rising in some areas as high waters worked their way toward the ocean. Bligh warned that drenched communities could be stuck under water for more than a week, and clean up efforts were expected to cost billions of dollars.

Queensland launched a disaster relief fund for flood victims with 1 million Australian dollars ($1 million) in state money. Prime Minister Julia Gillard pledged to match that amount with federal funds.

Gillard was touring flooded communities on Friday.

Hope TIBRO and our other Australian members are ok
  ::MonkeyCool::

Thank you for your concern.  All well here in our deep south.  I am not sure where other Aussie monkeys reside but I think they are all close to the coast and not affected as much as the folk who live in the west of Queensland.  Nightowl may be close to an affected area so I hope we hear from her/him very soon.

I will put some updates of the horrific floods in my Aussie thread.

I love the Grand Baby pictures and I don't know how you could let go of that little sweetheart Klaas.

San, your two pups have both grown into very handsome dogs and that boy is so clever.  They are a credit to you.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL MY MONKEY FRIENDS

200,000 People Affected by Flooding in Australia


Published December 30, 2010 | Associated Press

More than 200,000 people have been affected by relentless flooding in northeast Australia, with the flood zone now stretching over an area bigger than France and Germany combined, officials said Friday.

Thousands of homes and businesses across Queensland state have been inundated with water after days of pounding rain caused swollen rivers to overflow. The entire population of two towns was forced to evacuate as water swamped their communities, cutting off roads and devastating crops.

Heavy rains and flooding in northeast Australia is common during the southern hemisphere summer, but the scope of the damage from the recent downpours is extremely unusual, Queensland state Premier Anna Bligh said.

"This is without a doubt a tragedy on an unprecedented scale," Bligh told Australian Broadcasting Corp. "We now have 22 towns or cities that are either substantially flooded or isolated because the roads have been cut off to them.

HI MONKEYS!!   ::MonkeyDance::

Have I mentioned that I don't have Grandbabies??   ::MonkeyEek::   ::MonkeyHaHa::

Well, what I DON'T have in babies, I more than make up for in FURbabies!!   :smt040

Let me share my New Year's Night with you guys.........

John's sick, My son and future DIL are in Nashville, and that means I got to take care of Rudy, Hammer, (John's dogs), Bubba, (My son's BIG dog) and KuBear tonight!   ::MonkeyEek::

First, let me introduce you to Rudy and Hammer.......  cute little dogs........ high energy and smart. Pics all taken with my cell phone, so not the best quality.

THEN, there's BUBBA!!   ::MonkeyShocked:: He's a Bull Mastiff and HUGE! He thinks he's a lap dog. He doesn't want to be WITH you, he wants to be ON you! I ended up having to cross paths with all the dogs at one point tonight. Now, KuBear, my Shar Pei, is a real sweetie, BUT she's not exactly enthused with Rudy and Hammer. Therefore, I ended up putting her and Bubba in my bedroom for about 20 minutes and shutting the door. When I closed the door, my bed was made, my lampshades were straight, and I actually had blinds attached to the window frames.   :roll:

I can't imagine what crept in, because when I opened the door there were these two angels just sitting in this unexplained mess!   ::MonkeyShocked::

I guess I should be glad there was no blood anywhere and that Rudy and Hammer lived through the visit!  ::MonkeyDance::

HAPPY NEW YEAR MONKEYS!! LOVE YOU GUYS!!

( I wonder how much Ceaser charges to blend a family???   ::MonkeyTongue::)

I'm sure he has; Probably right after he drug my leopard print snuggie up there with him! It WAS folded on the computer chair!

I've spent the last 3 hours trying to get my blinds and window treatment back up straight.......... forget it....... it can't be done.......... by me, anyway! My guess is that Bubba wanted to see me when I went out to the car. The driveway is below that window.   ::MonkeyNoNo::

Michael left Thursday.............. and man, am I ready for him to come home!!! I've tried everything, but in the end, KuBear always sleeps with me, and Bubba won't sleep unless his big 'ole head is LAYING on me, so believe it or not, add me to that picture and you'll know why I'm still up at 6:00am!

When Bubba's not here, Ku just curls up at the foot of the bed. She gets more possesive when he's around and wants up at the head of the bed. Bubba just wants ON me! He plunked that big head down on my thigh last night, and I woke up thinking my leg had been amputated! I couldn't feel it, my foot, or my toes!  He's SUCH A BABY!! Not in a good way, either!   ::MonkeyNoNo::

Over the last few days, I have backed up and installed Windows7 on x1 PC and x1 laptop .  Now it's time to do my MAIN PC.  In the process of backing up everything now and am currently working off the laptop.  I've already backed up my emails and address book and found registration keys for all downloaded programs.  Trying not to forget anything. 

The old PC my husband will use mostly foe iTunes and his new iPod.  The sound card didn't work but I found an external usb soundcard for $10 that works great!  So my husband is all set!  ::dogwag::

Christmas morning with the blanket I made for her  ::MonkeyAngel::

(http://i118.photobucket.com/albums/o100/klaasen3/IMG00034.jpg)

SO cute, she's adorable. I can't believe she's already big enough for a teether, it seems like you were just barely on your way to take her toybox and see her for the first time.

You're full of hidden talents, I know two crochet stitches and neither make that neat of a baby blanket. Actually I need to learn how to make little blankets in general. My youngest picked out yarn a few years ago (yes I said years) and I started making her smallish blanket. I was talking to my oldest daughter on the phone and my size guesstimate while talking was off by a yard or 10, by the time I finish it, it will be able to double as a house tarp-it's HUGE!!! lol

I just got a new laptop and it has Windows7. I had Vista before and it was a royal pain..I had to replace my printer because they didn't have drivers for Vista and I was concerned about ANY Windows up date. But so far so good.

The old PC my husband will use mostly foe iTunes and his new iPod.  The sound card didn't work but I found an external usb soundcard for $10 that works great!  So my husband is all set!  ::dogwag::

Klaas? Is windows 7 the one that is supposed to be a lot like an improved Windows 98? I want that one! I managed to avoid Vista.......... I hated it whenever I had to use it!

Can I buy you a ticket to come do that for me? It would be cheaper than paying my tech guy!!  ::MonkeyKiss::

It is way better than Vista and pretty cool.  I'm still getting used to it and transferring programs.  Have alot to set up still.  Currently I have no photoshop but my son is going to send me a bunch of stuff  ::MonkeyCool::

I got Windows7 for 3 PC's as my Christmas gift from my husband.  I have uploaded on all 3 now.   ::MonkeyCool::

I thought Windows 7 was the one giving everyone such headaches on here with their screen jumping and such. Have they improved it?
That's Internet Explorer 8

It's infuriating to have to buy new equipment because you can't up date drivers. Or favorite programs won't work. ::MonkeyMad::

When you say backing up are you using an external hard drive, or moving the programs or info from one PC to the next, or is it part of the process in downloading Windows 7?  If and when we can buy a new computer, there is stuff on this old one we'd like to save.  I know that some programs will be lost because we don't have the software.  Web based mail or photo storage should be okay, I would think...like yahoo, hotmail, photobucket, etc.

The way I understand it Vista to Windows7 is pretty clear cut you run a simple upgrade with the disc and your old files and programs are saved.  Unfortunately, I had XP on all 3.  With XP you have to do a complete reinstallation so to speak and you need to backup everything you want to save.  Luckily for me I didn't have anything I needed to save on the old PC or the laptop.  On my main PC I backed up everything to my external drive.  First I had to take everything off my external drive (41g of stuff) and move to my PC.  Then I had to reformat my external to NTSF from FAT32. Then I had to move the 41g of files back.  Then I made a copy of my emails and my address book and put that on the external.  It was at that point I did the full backup and put it on the external.  Then I unplugged the external.

That's when I ran the Windows7 disc on thisi PC.  I still have a couple files to get back on this PC, Photoshop is the one I'm missing the most.  I have an old Photoshop disc but my son is going to send me new. ::MonkeyCool::

Thanks, Klaas.  Glad you mentioned the NTSF from FAT32.  Will hope to cross this bridge when we get to it.

A friend mentioned last week that his daughter bought a web cam for their computer at Radio Shack.  It was supposed to be XP compatible, but when they tried, it said they had to upgrade.  Not sure what the specifics were, but he was perfectly happy with returning it, since he really didn't want her to be using it anyway.  There is so much the average user doesn't know. 

Example:  A cousin and her husband needed a new computer and let their SIL order it from Dell.  They were telling us a month ago that they had to keep calling the help desk for this and that, and also couldn't open any attachments in their email.  They were complaining that the tech told them they had to buy software.  I guessed right away that the SIL didn't think of this when he ordered the PC.  They are truly computer ignorant.  I told her that someday when we visit I would take a look at what they had on it.  Not sure when that will happen.  They just read and forward email, play games and use the internet.  They had no idea that documents, powerpoint, pictures, etc. need a program to open them. 

Although I've been removed from the work experience for quite some time that built my computer skills , I am still grateful to have had the opportunity to learn and continue to learn things from others or just from reading.

I do love Windows 7 and my very favorite toy is their "stickies" - which allow you to
keep all sorts of important notes right there in front of you....or behind a screen.
This helps you with doctor's appointments, birthdays, anniversaries or your grocery list or any fleeting thought.

OMG the girl with the puppet saw a therapist and the therapist told her that she believes she was living her life through the puppet. So the girls mother said what else did the therapist say and the girl goes she said she thinks she should start living her life without the puppet and go out some times and leave the puppet home.  The mother goes I think that is a good idea don't you?  The girl was sitting there with the puppet and all of a sudden the puppet goes I think that's a bad idea  ::MonkeyHaHa:: ::MonkeyHaHa::

Good morning seahorse  :smt006  Thank you for posting the heart pillow link.  I just got a sewing machine and haven't sewn since way back in home ec, and the heart pillow looks like it would be fun to do for Valentine's Day as a gift.  I think I've made enough place mats and table runners  ::MonkeyWink::  ::MonkeyHaHa::

When my son was in high school, he was in a sewing class one quarter and made me a heart shape throw pillow.  I still have it to this day.  Moths have gotten to it some and it's been in storage and moved around more than you can imagine but I have it in a safe place on display  ::MonkeyCool:: ::MonkeyAngel::

Hi Muffybee  ::bee::

You are welcome.  It is so exciting to have a new machine. 

I have a Sears old time dinosaur machine and I love it.  I repracticed with fabric check book covers, scrunchies for ponytails, fabric "money bags" ::MonkeyHaHa::. I also altered a dress in my closet. The dress I took out the waist ties and hemmed it, now it looks up to date.

I am going to turn the Snuggie into a housecoat. There is power in sewing. You also inspired me Muffy. Thank-you.

https://www.craftstylish.com/item/40130/how-to-make-snuggly-slippers-from-old-sweaters

My feet are always cold, so I'm constantly looking for nice slippers to wear. Unfortunately, most of the affordable ones I find are made from 100% synthetic materials, which means they're not environmentally considerate AND they make your feet sweat. Yuck! So I came up with this alternative to buying slippers: Make them out of old wool sweaters. Care to join me in stitching up a pair?

---------------------

Hi Monkey's,

This is not my pattern or even my idea.  I just have many sweaters I have been pushing around, going to try making slippers.
Full written directions on the above link. The slippers do have homely feeling to them.  I will sleep in the homemade slippers, if
they come out tacky.  ::MonkeyHaHa::

I like the idea of repurposing the sweater and making it into slippers.  I don't care for sweaty slippers either.  The only concern I have for the slippers here is how to make them non-skid?  I have hardwood floors and tile and even walking around in just socks could cause a mishap....

Now there are conflicting reports as to whether she's alive or dead.
There's a 21 y/o male in custody.
Nothing released yet if this was domestic or foreign terrorism, or just a nut job.

GE........ I'm fine!  ::MonkeyDance:: I'll watch for updates from you!  ::MonkeyAngel::

Monkeys know all so I'm looking for advice......... on cleaning a marble floor. YUK!!

I'm moving to Mom's house next month. Well, it's actually mine now, but it will always be Mom and Dad's. There's a marble foyer that was always a big deal to clean when I was growing up. Mom always had it stripped once a year....... I think with something like Comet or Ajax........ maybe even rinsed with an ammonia dilution. It was a hard job, done on knees with a lot of elbow grease. After it was stripped and thoroughly rinsed cleaned, I know she had several coats of an acrylic sealer put on, called "Future". It was liquid and clear, and man, did the floor shine after it dried! It was just evenly applied with a soft cloth. The floor is Tennessee pink marble (if you've ever been to the Capitol building in Washington, they used it there too) and just beautiful when it's well maintained. She had a buffer that was easy to use (my job growing up), that kept it in great shape until it was time to strip again.

It's been years and years since the floor has been well tended and it's dull and scratched. I want to get it back to the way it looked. I'll be doing it myself, but haven't seen "Future" in years, and am not 100% sure of what was used to strip it. I threw out Mom's buffer when she died. It still ran, but you could no longer buy the replacement pads.

Anybody got any ideas?

I think I need to do this for "psychological" reasons.  ::MonkeyHaHa:: The house is in SUCH need of updating. The kitchen is PINK.... I mean we're talking pink formica countertops with a silver trim. OMG! I just googled pink formica and here it is!! Anybody remember this? Anyway, getting the foyer in good shape is a plus that I'm going to need since I'm going to have to tackle things slowly and as I can! Get a load of this:   ::MonkeyHaHa::

CBB,
http://www.ehow.com/way_5374383_marble-floor-refinishing.html

I just searched and found this site with suggestion about the stripping of the marble.  Gosh, iirc, Future was a wax/polish that was used on flooring before the 'no wax' tiles were sold.  I remember using it.  The site does still mention having to buff the marble more than once to smooth it out.  Maybe you can rent one....I know that could be an expense.

My MIL used to clean some local banks years ago and I helped her at the one closest to our home.  At the time, there was a stone or slate flooring at the counter area.  We vacuumed and mopped it regularly, but when the finish got dull, we'd apply some kind of sealer that was made specifically for that kind of surface.  I'm sure you might be able to find something at Home Depot or Lowes.  It smelled but looked beautiful when dry.

Maybe you could try a steam mop.  I have one and I do my floors all the time with it and the shine is unreal.  Steam really cleans up any mess on my floors and I would not go back to a regular mop or down on my  knees cleaning.

I don't have marble floors, but I have 17" tiles, and I use a bucket of water with about 1/2 cup of  white vinegar in it to clean with.  I had tried other cleaners, but it left a light haze and I had to rinse.  Not with the vinegar water.  It leaves a light shine and the vinegar smell goes away.  The white vinegar is good because it also works to discourage mold or bacteria growth, not to mention that it's cheap.

For the marble, I wouldn't use any kind of wax like Future.  There are different sealers that can be bought from Home Depot, Lowe's or even a tile company.  Maybe call a tile installation company and ask for product advice for diy.  Or, the good old web.  However, I've seen things on the web that aren't always so great... JMHO   I have granite countertops that came "sealed' and I use a cleaner/conditioner on them, but have read they need to be sealed every couple of years.

I hope that I don't have to have a lot of maintenance with it! was told that marble does scratch easily.so keep that in mind when you clean it with certain cleaners that could be abrasive... it is so pretty, but I hope that it won't require me to do special things to it!  cause I am rather lazy..

also, what kind of steam mop is the best? is it good for hard wood floors too? thanks a bunch

Cookie, I use the Shark steam mop.  Most important thing to do before you use the steam mop is make sure you vacuum up the floor really good.  They now make a Shark steam mop/vac so it vacuums up and then steam the floor all at the same time.   I personally would not pay the extra money for a vac and then mop but that's just me.  Yes the steam mop does all kinds of floors.  My kitchen and bathrooms floor are so clean and they shine when it drys which is almost immediately.  Like I said I would never go back to the regular mop or getting down on my knees to clean.

CBB,

Maybe go to the local bank and see who does their marble floors and give them a call. TN, marble, to me, is one of the prettiest in the world! Next is from Siena, Italy.


Of course, I am partial to "Indiana" limestone. CBB, Heard pink was the "in" color for this year, but sure do understand how "disturbing" a pink kitchen could be. I read somewhere that red is supposed to make you eat more. Wonder if pink means the color helps loose weight? Pink and black was very big in the 50's. Going down the color scale then that would mean while means starving and lots of people have white kitchens and don't starve  ::MonkeyKiss::

Klaas, what a beautiful child! So sparkling!

All Monkeys, stay warm, safe watch out for ice and black ice.

Sad weekend for America. God help all those in need and suffering. The little girl, according to her dad on CNN, was born on Sept. 11, a tragic day and died on a tragic day. How sad for everyone. God Bless them.

I knew it! You guys are really the absolute best in the world!! Thanks for all the tips, suggestions and resources!  ::MonkeyDance:: I've looked at them all, and surely I can figure it out with the help!

My suspicion is that there is still a residual of the "future" on the floor, so I guess that the first order of business is to figure out how to strip everything off of it. That stuff never did come off easily! Yeah, IBE, it really is pretty marble; a rich mixture of pink and gray and when treated as it should be, it almost has depth. There's lots and lots that's pretty discouraging about the house that I'm just going to have to adjust to until I can find the funds to change, so making that floor pretty again is a real spirit lifter for me! I'll post some pictures when I get moved........... it will be like a stroll down memory lane; kind of a cross between the Brady Bunch, Green Acres and Leave It To Beaver!  ::MonkeyHaHa::

Thanks All!!   ::MonkeyKiss::

One cup of ammonia in one gallon hot water will strip the Future ( wax ) from the floor. I purchased a buffer from Oreck and love it ! Be careful with the ammonia fumes and ventilate the area while you work if possible.

This post is in regards to SINUS FLUSHING (ahhh yes, glamorous!).  But it's that time of year, the time where either it's warm/cold/warm/cold, or we're stuck inside, or people are just having colds/sinus issues, and this really does come in handy.

I had been telling some sniffly-monkeys about a time when I had a sinus infection for at least a month.  I usually have had allergies, but this was really bad.  I couldn't seem to do anything to fix it - not antibiotics, not patience, and it was at the point where I was beginning to have a horrible smell in my sinuses.  It was a nightmare.

On the advice of my aunt, who is and has been a huge advocate for "nasal irrigation" for ages, I broke down and bought a "neti pot" to flush my sinuses.

Neti pots have been around for ages; certain cultures swear by nasal irrigation, for cleansing and health benefits, and now I know why!  Usually the water is tepid, and it is a mixture of water and a special salt that you mix to make a saline mixture that is close to the salinity of our own mucous membranes.  I believe it's slightly MORE saline, which helps to kill fungus and excessive bacteria in our sinuses that are the culprits of our problems.  I have found that it seems to help reduce stuffiness and inflammation of my nasal passages.

And how about that sinus infection?  Well it kicked it's tush!  The problem was finally gone within a week.  I have used it since (just in case that was a fluke) any time I have any bad nasal irritation, severe allergies, etc and it continues to work as it did the first time.  I really should use it more often, preventatively.  Maybe that can be a new-year's resolution for me!  :)

As for the "equipment", you can now easily find "neti pots" at most of your local Walgreens, etc, and even little batches of the packets for saline.  You may be able to find alternatives online for frugality.  I don't know why you couldn't use a baby's ear syringe, for example.

The first time you do it, I'll admit - it is just weird and a little horrible.  Basically, you are pouring water in one side of your nose and, with your head tilted at a very specific angle* the water goes through your sinuses, breaking up and moisturing stuff, into the other side of your nose and out into a sink.  Again, the salinity of the water has a bit of an antiseptic effect without damaging the GOOD bacteria in your nose that help us from getting skin infections and yeast infections in our skin/nose.  I feel that maybe the salinty of the water also helps draw out a little inflammation, but that is conjecture at this point - I'd have to research.

Some articles you might find interesting about the process, and to give you the CORRECT* WAY of doing this.

AGAIN<-------------> Do not just attempt to do this after reading this, because I've described it incompletely.

http://altmedicine.about.com/cs/allergiesasthma/a/SinusIrrigation.htm  (How to make the solution at home using a baby's ear syringe or a bulb)
http://www.healingdaily.com/exercise/neti-pot.htm  has a video - yucky, but erm - useful.
http://www.achooallergy.com/sinus-nasaflo.asp   A little paid blurb about the most commonly found Neti pot, and some reviews if you want to see what others think.

I hope that some of you are able to make use of this information to feel better!  Take care.  Nathalie

I got my husband the neti pot this evening...he said that it helped..I told him to use it every day for at least a week..he tends to stop using something once it works the first time...he never listens to me but perhaps he will this time since he is so miserable..with this neti pot, the mixture came with it...easy to mix and use..
thanks for the tip..hope that it makes him feel better soon...xxxxxx

Had a doctor's appt. last week and mentioned that the only problem I had was sinus congestion. He gave me a brochure of something similar to a neti pot I guess. Said it was the best thing he had ever found and he used it regularly.
It's called NeilMed Sinus Rinse. It comes with an 8 oz bottle, cap, Fifty regular premixed packets and an Educational Brochure. SRP is $11.49.
I think with a neti pot, you have to buy the packets separately. I know 50 sounds like a lot, so don't know which would be the best buy.

thank you for the info on it! ::MonkeyKiss::
the neti pot that I got for him had 50 packets with it...
I saw that rinse too and maybe I will get it as well...
hope that this cures his problems with his sinuses..he had sinus surgery a few months ago but is still getting the headaches...

Cookie, I think they both use the same rinse. If you already have the Neti Pot I wouldn't get the other one. I just remember seeing the Neti Pot in Wally World and didn't think it came with any saline packets. I admit, I wasn't really paying that much attention at the time.

My mom and son both use the Neilmed Sinus Rinse.  They buy a box of saline packet refills by Neilmed, with 100 packets.  These packets could be used for the Neti pot too  ::MonkeyWink::  Mom and son have both have had sinus surgery and struggled with allergies and such, and they have found using the Neilmed on a daily basis when their allergies are in high season is helpful.  It rinses out the allergens and etc.

I have bad allergies and get sinus infections and ear infections. I use Little Noses Sterile Saline Nasal Mist. It is for babies and little kids, and it is a mist that goes up each nostril. Since I can't stand anything that goes up my nose, this works the best for me. But the main thing, and the best thing I ever purchased, a humidifier. Since the humidifier I have not had any infections. It is dry in CA where I live, but even if you live in a climate with a brutal winter, by having your furnace on, it dries out the air in your house.

I have used the NeilMed Sinus Rinse for about 10 months.  Not one sinus headache, no sinus infections . . . I am now off my allergy pills for the first time in about 15 years.  I use it twice a day . . . morning and evening.  I highly recommend it.  The couple of times I went away and forgot to pack it and could feel the pressure building again.  I went right to a drug store and bought a new one.  I now buy the packets in the 100 box.  My nephew uses one and now my Mom does too.

You know, when I bought my last Neti pot, the pharmacy (Walmart) had a little jar of loose powder, instead of the packets.  But honestly - the packets have a huge shelf date, and you'll be glad to have them if you can get them.  I'm glad to see you all trying this, and to hear of someone else who had luck with it.  It really is a great way to do things, and helps me because I don't have to use as many antihistamines, and decongestants, and other things that just seem to muddle my already muddled brain!  LOL

Anyway, I'm really glad to hear that the neti pot and rinses are already helping.  I love them, after that first one.  :)

https://www.craftstylish.com/item/40130/how-to-make-snuggly-slippers-from-old-sweaters

My feet are always cold, so I'm constantly looking for nice slippers to wear. Unfortunately, most of the affordable ones I find are made from 100% synthetic materials, which means they're not environmentally considerate AND they make your feet sweat. Yuck! So I came up with this alternative to buying slippers: Make them out of old wool sweaters. Care to join me in stitching up a pair?

---------------------

Hi Monkey's,

This is not my pattern or even my idea.  I just have many sweaters I have been pushing around, going to try making slippers.
Full written directions on the above link. The slippers do have homely feeling to them.  I will sleep in the homemade slippers, if
they come out tacky.  ::MonkeyHaHa::

I like the idea of repurposing the sweater and making it into slippers.  I don't care for sweaty slippers either.  The only concern I have for the slippers here is how to make them non-skid?  I have hardwood floors and tile and even walking around in just socks could cause a mishap.... 

Slipper's from Mitten's

Hi Creative Monkey's,

My wonderful neighbor gave me a pair of homemade mittens.  I put the mitten's on my feet, they are so wonderfully comfortable.
I am not kidding.  LOL, I do not what to do with the loose thumbs on my feet, I will probably stitch them, so I don't look freaky:)
The slipper mittens are more like Booties, very comfortable.  I was really going through my sweater, and rediscovered the mitten's.
If you have extra homemade mitten's, like most of us have, try putting on your feet, nice and warm and surprisely comfortable.

This last storm didn't leave as much snow as the first here in our area (about 6 inches).  I think San may have been hit harder...not sure.  Today, I have to go out and clear snow from the oil tank so that the delivery guy can fill it tomorrow.  Not looking forward to it, but everyone else is working and it's got to be done.  It's pretty cold and windy.

Always good to see you, None...hope all is well.   ::HelloKitty::

I hope the bears did not get you today clearing off that oil tank !!

We'll have to email soon, I've missed our chats  ::MonkeyKiss::

Hi Nonesuche - no, I have no idea why that happened to you.  That's wierd.  Let me know if you continue to have problems.

Thanks Klaas, I was able to sign back in with my new password so - for now, no issues. I just assumed it was the result of a system update but I guess not?

Nonesuche - as far as I know you are the only one who had to change their password.  The update that was done the other night was maintenance by the server company and nothing we did to the forum software.  It should not have cause anything like making anyone change their password.  So, I have no idea what caused your problem.

Klaas when I try to input the new password twice (using IE this time and not firefox), it did ask me my secret question and allow me to set a new password just as it did yesterday. So I reset the password and was able to sign in finally.

It's possible for whatever reason it is one of those AOL problems that would come up every once in a while ages ago.  I don't know what to tell you.  I just hope everything is OK in the future.

SASSIFRASS most of the Smilies have been from QuietMonkey. She has quite a collection of them and has shared them. I have them downloaded on a Photobucket.

I don't know if this is allowed on the forum - however, I'm going to try...

Some young people who went to high school with my oldest son and daughter-in-law have started a new TV News channel in our area. They entered a contest to win a "set" for the channel and they are one of two finalists in this contest. They need votes to win - which is where you could help!! You don't have to sign up, register, or anything like that - all you have to do is go to the website and click a button - that's it. They would really appreciate if some of you would do this for them - thanks in advance!!



Edit:
I've removed the link pending an okay from Klaasend.  It's always a good idea to ask if you aren't sure about posting something.  MuffyBee

I've added the link back but in the future best to ask first.  TIA

To snag any of the smilies or any other picture for that matter, all you have to do is right click on the image and save as to a folder or even your desktop. You can open a photobucket account for free. Then you can download the images or .gifs to it. It is pretty easy to do. Just hit the download file on the photobucket login and you can browse your file or desktop and download them. From that, view your album, select the picture you want. Below you will see several boxes. You want to click on the bottom box that says IMG and it will say copied. Go to your post and click where you want it to be. Right click and paste and it will automatically post it with all the img brackets. Preview to see if it is what you want. I know it sounds complicated, but it isn't. There is a practice thread if you want to try it out first. I'll try to find the link for you or maybe someone will post it.  Here are a few you can practice with (http://i844.photobucket.com/albums/ab6/fannymae66/cancan-1.gif)

This is probably before a lot of you were born, but I thought it very interesting.


Comments made in the year 1955!

‘I’ll tell you one thing, if things
keep going the way they are,
it’s going to be impossible to
buy a week’s groceries for $10.00. ‘

‘Have you seen the new cars
coming out next year?  It won’t
be long before $1, 000.00 will
only buy a used one.’ 

‘If cigarettes keep going up in
price, I’m going to quit; 20 cents
a pack is ridiculous. ‘

‘Did you hear the post office is
thinking about charging 7 cents
just to mail a letter.’

‘If they raise the minimum wage
to $1.00, nobody will be able to
hire outside help at the store.’

‘When I first started driving, who
would have thought gas would
someday cost 25 cents a gallon.
Guess we’d be better off leaving
the car in the garage.’

‘I’m afraid to send my kids to the
movies any more.  Ever since they
let Clark Gable get by with saying
DAMN in ‘GONE WITH THE WIND’,
it seems every new movie has
either HELL or DAMN in it.’

‘I read the other day where some
scientist thinks it’s possible to put
a man on the moon by the end of
the century. They even have some
fellows they call astronauts
preparing for it down in Texas.’

‘Did you see where some baseball
player just signed a contract for
$50,000 a year just to play ball?
It wouldn’t surprise me if someday
they’ll be making more than the
President. ‘

‘I never thought I’d see the day
all our kitchen appliances would
be electric.  They are even making
electric typewriters now. ‘

‘It’s too bad things are so tough
nowadays.  I see where a few
married women are having to
work to make ends meet. ‘

‘It won’t be long before young
couples are going to have to hire
someone to watch their kids so
they can both work.’

‘I’m afraid the Volkswagen car
is going to open the door to a
whole lot of foreign business.’

‘Thank goodness I won’t live to
see the day when the Government
takes half our income in taxes.  I
sometimes wonder if we are
electing the best people to
government.’

‘The drive-in restaurant is
convenient in nice weather,
but I seriously doubt they
will ever catch on.’

‘There is no sense going on short
trips anymore for a weekend.  It
costs nearly $2.00 a night to stay
in a hotel.’

‘No one can afford to be sick
anymore.  At $15.00 a day in
the hospital, it’s too rich for
my blood.’

‘If they think I’ll pay 30 cents
for a hair cut, forget it.’


This was the year I graduated from high school and I'll bet my parents said most of those things.

Amazing reunion story
January 19, 2011

January 19, 2011 (WABC) -- A remarkable story unfolding tonight in the Bronx, where a 23-year-old woman, stolen from a hospital room in Harlem when she was just three weeks old, tonight is with her parents.

Her name is Carlina White, although she was raised as Nejdra Nance in Bridgeport, Connecticut. How she finally found her parents is an amazing story, an emotional journal that started when Carlina, doubting her connection to the people who raised her, searched the web and found a picture of a missing little girl that looked just like she did in the pictures her supposed parents had taken of her when she was a baby.

She then contacted a national missing children's group, and earlier this month the connection with the parents was made. They met for the first time this past weekend. And tonight, she's coming home. Finally, after 23 years. As for the people who took her, they're looking for them. And what of the people who raised her? And how did they get her? No formal charges have been filed. Yet. Jim Dolan is on this goose-bump kinda story, at 11. (snipped)

Sundance Review: 'Project Nim'
By Daniel Fienberg - James Marsh's fascinating doc tries to understand people trying to understand a chimp
Friday, Jan 21, 2011 5:13 AM


PARK CITY, UTAH - If you know me, or if you're a regular reader, you may be aware that I dig monkeys. I'm a sucker for greeting cards with monkeys, stuffed monkeys and, under the right circumstances, I enjoy a good monkey-driven piece of cinema.

At this moment, though, I'm feeling a bit guilty for my simian fascination and I'm definitely regretting any jokes I might have made about someday dreaming of having my own monkey-butler.
 
I can't guarantee that the guilt will last very long. At the Sundance Film Festival, you never lack for films to generate guilt and I may have turned my attentions to the environment, the Middle East or gender repression by the time you read the review.
 
But in this moment, I'm all too aware that it's hard out there for a chimp.
 
If that were the only message of James Marsh's new documentary "Project Nim," that would probably be enough. But Marsh's follow-up to the Oscar-winning "Man on Wire" is more than just a story about the way humans treat animals, the way we express our power over the weak and the way we impress human values upon creatures who have no use for or understanding of our particular version of domestication.
 
"Project Nim" is a gripping animal biopic that takes audiences on a journey that begins with laugher, amusement and bemusement and ends, at least in the case of several viewers around me, with tears. It's a gracefully crafted documentary and I suspect it will play well for audiences on a variety of levels.
 
More thoughts on "Project Nim" after the break...
 
"Project Nim" begins in 1973 with Columbia Professor Herbert Terrace's idea to bring up a chimpanzee in an exclusively human environment, to raise the chimp as a child, teach the chimp to use sign language and to generally push the extremes of the "nurture" side of the "nature vs. nurture" argument. To that end, Herb took Nim away from his mother as an infant and moved him into a ritzy Upper West Side apartment to be brought up by Stephanie LaFarge as part of her already unsteady blended family.
 
The study is scientifically flawed on a number of levels, but the major problem is that with media-obsessed absentee Herb and anything-goes, no-limits hippie Stephanie, Nim was cursed with the unsteadiest background imaginable for human development. As Nim gets passed from one surrogate parent to another, gets moved from one home to another, watches one teacher after another depart for reasons stemming from human inconstancy and frailty, he responds in a way similar to how any confused product of a broken home would respond. There's certainly a layer of "Project Nim" that's about the way humans parent their own children.
 
Except that Nim isn't a child. He's a chimp and much of "Project Nim" focuses on the bafflement expressed by a team of supposedly educated people when they realize that a young chimp might not develop in the same way as a young child.
 
The first third of "Project Nim" is quite funny. Nim was an adorable little chimp and no matter how puerile it may sound, if somebody shows you a chimpanzee in a leisure suit, you're going to laugh.
 
But more of the laughter comes from the sheer folly that all involved brought to this project. Marsh has all of the principles from the project available for on-camera interviews and their lack of self-awareness, more than 30 years after the project began, is astounding. They're an amazing assortment of characters, starting with Professor Terrace, who barely blinks in admitting his tendency to hire attractive assistants and eventually bed them, setting a backdrop of sexual promiscuity that would contribute to the instability of Nim's upbringing. We also chuckle, at least for a while, at LaFarge's embarrassingly laissez faire approach to parenting her new "child" and a level of anthropomorphizing that goes from inoffensively silly (the aforementioned monkey leisure suit) to eventually dangerous.
 
Watching "Project Nim," I repeatedly flashed back to Werner Herzog's "Grizzly Man," another film about the sad consequences of reading a whole catalogue of human behaviors onto a wild animal simply because of isolated familiar traits. There are obvious differences that contribute to making "Project Nim" even more tragic in places. To begin with, Tim Treadwell was a dilettante, while the folks associated with Project Nim were empirically brilliant, even if it didn't show in their execution. Also, you don't have to believe in evolution to recognize that chimpanzees are a lot more like people than bears are, so the anthropomorphizing is easier to understand, but its consequences are as well. And finally, speaking of consequences, if you slip up around a mammoth bear, the bear will just eat you. If you screw up a juvenile chimp, the chimp is the one likely to get hurt.
 
[Oddly, as often as I thought about "Grizzly Man," I thought even more frequently about "Gremlins." People like to start with something cute and we like to think that because we can read love in big watery eyes and a few reassuring speech-like communications and then when animals become animalistic, we get confused. We're not ready for mogwai and we're probably not ready for monkey either. If the first half of "Project Nim" is about treating a chimp as a child, the second half is about how you handle a chimp who has been raised as a child, but remains a chimp.]
 
Marsh combines his awkwardly honest talking heads with an amazing wealth of archival footage, both images and home movies, of Nim's upbringing. And where there were gaps in available resources, Marsh has inserted bridging reenactments that never feel jarring. Edited by Jinx Godfrey, "Project Nim" plays as a biopic, simultaneously anthropomorphizing Nim with an ever-so-human emotional arc, while never failing to acknowledge the impossibilities of truly understanding the feelings and motivations of its main character. Because of that "You think you know, but you really can't possibly know" undercurrent, Nim's life plays out in a series of unexpected twists, even as Marsh uses traditional elements like sex, drugs and abuse to form the structure.
 
The actual Project Nim was about trying to understand the things that go on in the mind of a chimp. But Marsh knows that his hero can't sit down for an interview of his own, so "Project Nim" the documentary is about trying to understand the things that go on in the mind of people. In that respect, it's actually similar to "Man on Wire," which looked at tightrope walker Philippe Petit and said "What on Earth would make a man want to do that?" With "Man on Wire," Marsh found an enchanting answer. With "Project Nim," Marsh found only a string of confounding questions.
 
It's an intriguing conceit and the execution pushes all manner of emotional buttons. "Project Nim" was a great way to kick off the Sundance Film Festival.

 :2ukli: I have to vent! I have seen where some Monkeys were talking about knitting, crochet and such. I am in the process of making a pair of red wool socks. The wool is very fine, expensive, non-scratchy and wonderful to work with. I have made socks many times using four double pointed needles. I made a pair last year. The only difference is these needles are much smaller and the yarn is finer gauge.

The pattern I have says "intermediate" and I think I am there and probably higher. I have knitted since I was a teenager. But I have had soooooooo much trouble with this pattern and have taken out as many stitches as I have knitted. I keep loosing count, dropping stitches, and it's really not the pattern but me. I am feeling so frustrated with it now I feel like throwing the whole thing in the fireplace. I am now going to have to take out two rows to correct a mistake. It is in a place I can't fudge. God only knows what is going to happen when I get to the part to turn the heel.

I have gone in my bedroom by myself, with not TV, radio, laptop or music just to concentrate. And still I am making mistakes, stupid mistakes. I have put the knitting down for a while when I get frustrated, and have even knitted when I am the freshest. I should have a sock made by now and started on the other one. I might have four inches done.

Usually I find knitting very soothing and relaxing. I like the repetitive nature of it, and it usually turns into mindless work. WTH is going on? I don't expect anyone to respond to this, I just needed to vent!

Back to the knitting. I wonder what wool smells like when it burns?  ::MonkeyRoll::

Klaas if you are still around, you might want to change Elizabeth Ennen from endangered runaway to missing, kidnapped. They have arrested the guy she was babysitting for.

I've moved Elizabeth Ennen's thread from "Missing Endangered Runaway" to the "Missing Persons" Forum.

Make Pasta??   ::MonkeyShocked::

Sure! I can tell you exactly how to make Pasta................ nothing to it! You buy a box of Pasta. You put on reading glasses so you can read the directions on the box. You boil a lot of salted water and pour in the Pasta from the box. Cooking time is on the box, but if it's been a bad day, just sling some pieces on the wall and when they stick, it's done! If the pieces bounce off the wall and sound like plastic when they hit, you've forgotten to boil them first, but the dogs will love you as the gobble them off the floor!!    :smt040

Me, too, but my hubby's grandmother & mine used to make homemade ravioli and I remember watching my Aunt and her mother making pasta in their kitchen.  That is something I have never thought to attempt.  They used to hang them on lines to dry, so to speak.  Eating them was more memorable.  Yum.

amaranthblossom -  If you've been here for a couple of years reading, did you notice that the emoticons that are at Scared Monkeys were created not so much to be works of art, but were sometimes created for situations and are/were greatly enjoyed and used often.  The people (friends here)  that created the emoticons, including Klaasend, CBB and Brandi are highly regarded for their time and efforts not only for creating emoticons, but for their kindness and helpful ways with others that include members here and for the missing and exploited.  It's one thing to offer help, but it's another thing to put down others while you're doing so.  I initially wrote a fairly scathing post to you, but I backed it off, thinking maybe you just posted without thinking.  I gave you a chance to rethink your post and it didn't seem to make a difference.  You said you wanted to "help out here", and I think maybe you're the one that needs some help.  You need to brush up on your forum etiquette. (That's manners, btw)   Thank you for your backhanded offer to upgrade our emoticons, but no thanks.  I think we should just keep them, along with the good monkeys that created them.  jmho  ::bee::

Hi Monkeys!!  ::HelloKitty::

Thanks Muffy and welcome to posting amarathblossom!!   ::MonkeyWink::

I just wanted to add that Klaas has made the vast majority of the emoticons and is the ORIGINAL artist on the forum. She actually lives here and just visits California to check in on hubby and Petey!   ::MonkeyDance::

Because she always has her fingers on the pulse of the forum, she's been able to whip out exactly what emoticons posters need and want and she's full of wonderful surprises with them too!

We all love to see what's she's been working on and added to the list, and the little monkey face, in particular, is almost the mascot here. You do a fantastic job with them Klaas! Thanks for your art and all you do here, Miss Rex!!   ::MonkeyKiss::

 I have been using a combination of both. I will stop if you say so. It is no reflection on the ones you've made. I've just got a big collection of smileys and I think they are cute and funny..

Morning all.  I will be missing court today, so hope you all post some good stuff.  I think you should wear DUCT TAPE TO COURT TODAY.  Wouldn't Casey love that?  I would love to see Bozo's face if all the people in the court room had some duct tape somewhere on them. Maybe instead of a ribbon, a ribbon made out of duct tape?  Sounds morbid, but really would show that this is about Caylee Marie.

Fanny, if I may ask, what are those things on your monkey's derrieres that look like baloons?  For some reason, I was intensely studying your AvI, and could not figure out what they were.

Zoo, here are some images I found. I saw one in a zoo one time and thought they were hysterical. Since I am not exactly slender in the derričre department, I though they would suit me just fine. I think they are actually baboons.

I just have to post this site here. I didn't know it existed until someone sent it to me.
The Virtual Wall- The Vietnam Veterans Memorial

Just scroll down to whatever state you want. Each city lists the names on the wall, click on the name and it brings up a profile of the person and some with pictures. I found my cousin's name and info. He was killed on my birthday, 1969.


Edit to add link per SuzieQ.

Actually I think they are supposed to be quite attractive to the opposite sex in the Baboon world.  Thankfully mine still fit in my pants too, but I have to admit sitting here at the computer since the Caylee case, it has widened a bit. If I was completely truthful more than a bit.  ::piggy::

there was another missing girl on NG tonight..she was 14 and was taken out of her bedroom..am not sure what her name was..they have already found her body at a cemetary.  a young boy has been arrested.
does this sound familiar and would we have a thread on this girl already? sounds like it was recent.
Oh, and the LE said that she was also a runaway or that there was no reason to be concerned...not the exact words but you get the gist...Beautiful girl!  ::MonkeyMad:: ::MonkeyMad:: ::MonkeyMad::

I could not believe what I was hearing when listening to NG! another girl missing, taken from her bed! a beautiful child and it just really shook me up...At first I thought that NG was talking about a current disappearance since there have been so many of them..What the hell is happening to our children??? people are getting too bold with their evil.

E! Entertainment Specal: When Women Kill, Jan. 26
January 25, 2011

E! brings an hour long special that shows what happens when women lose it. To the friends and family who knew them best, they were women who doted on their children and were dedicated to their relationships.

However, behind closed doors, their seemingly perfect lives turned shocking and deadly.

E! examines how four women went down the path to murder when the “E! Entertainment Special:  When Women Kill” premieres Wednesday, January 26 at 10pm ET/PT only on E!


The disappearance of 8-year-old Sandra Cantu from her Tracy, California home in 2009 gripped the nation.  This E! special takes a close look at former Sunday School teacher Melissa Huckaby - Sandra’s neighbor and mother of a 5-year-old herself – who eventually admitted to kidnapping and murdering Sandra.  Huckaby’s own mother and aunt, who continue to support Melissa, spoke with E!  They share the experience of having two families shaken to the core by Huckaby’s actions, and the fact that she was diagnosed with a mental illness only after she was in police custody.  Ultimately, Huckaby avoided the death penalty, though she will spend the rest of her life in prison for murdering Sandra Cantu.

The special features three other tragic stories of death and destruction from seemingly happy wives and mothers.


Susan Wright was a young stay-at-home mother of two from Texas who stabbed her husband Jeffery 193 times before burying his body in a shallow grave at their home.  Wright later admitted to the killing as an act of self defense after suffering years of domestic abuse.

She was convicted of murder and initially given 25 years in prison, although her sentence was reduced to 20 years, after an appeal.

E! presents viewers with testimony and footage from the trial, along with insight from all attorneys involved.

Andrea Petrosky is the subject of another tragic story.  She was a wife mother of two who grew up in rural Virginia plagued by depression and incapacitating migraines.

In a phone interview with E!, Petrosky talks about being an unhappy child despite being brought up in a loving home, and the unchecked mental illness that led her to have marital affairs, and attempt suicide twice—all before committing the horrifying act of violence that landed her in prison in 2006.

In addition, viewers will hear the chilling 911 call Petrosky made, in which she admitted to killing her only son.  Petrosky speaks with E! about her life in prison, and where her relationship stands with her, now adult, surviving daughter.  We also go behind bars to hear from Elizabeth Romero, a mother of eight children who was convicted of solicitation of capital murder and sentenced to 12 years in prison.

Don’t miss these terrible, true tales of heartbreak inflicted by seemingly unassuming wives and mothers when “E! Entertainment Special: When Women Kill” premiering Wednesday, January 26 at 10pm ET/PT only on E!

YW cookie.  Sandra Cantu's  abduction and murder was horrible and it was a woman that was responsible of course.    So often the first thought when a child is suspected of being abducted would be to look to a male as the suspect, particularly one with a previous offense.  Sandra Cantu's case changed that.  And of course, there are some cases where a female was used to lure another female, (whether adult or child) to a male to be assaulted.  Or what I've realized is just because the person near your child is a female doesn't necessarily mean safe.  I admit, I would tend to trust a female more than I would a male around my child, but who knows anymore?   ::MonkeyNoNo::  JMHO

Hi All-

It is depressing to see how the impact of these evil predators continues to widen.........

Note to Klaas (not a complaint but an observation):
When signing on today I was not able to sign in via firefox, so switched to IE and still wasn't able to sign on. I clicked through the "log in" icon on the toolbar, which opened the full sign-on screen. I was able to sign on then via IE. Just a bit quirky, don't you think?

It's gloomy rain here today but hopeful those of you up the eastern corridor can endure one more heavy snow !! Take care everyone!

If you recall MH was being treated for a mental disorder back when she was 12 years old if I recall correctly. Also the judge who sentenced her during the trial prior to her killing Sandra had asked for a court ordered evaluation. I can't help but feel this family was in deep denial about her and helped sheltered her and now I feel they are sheltering themselves.

BTW, Fanny that avi is so funny! I love it!

I knew it! You guys are really the absolute best in the world!! Thanks for all the tips, suggestions and resources!  ::MonkeyDance:: I've looked at them all, and surely I can figure it out with the help!

My suspicion is that there is still a residual of the "future" on the floor, so I guess that the first order of business is to figure out how to strip everything off of it. That stuff never did come off easily! Yeah, IBE, it really is pretty marble; a rich mixture of pink and gray and when treated as it should be, it almost has depth. There's lots and lots that's pretty discouraging about the house that I'm just going to have to adjust to until I can find the funds to change, so making that floor pretty again is a real spirit lifter for me! I'll post some pictures when I get moved........... it will be like a stroll down memory lane; kind of a cross between the Brady Bunch, Green Acres and Leave It To Beaver!  ::MonkeyHaHa::

Thanks All!!   ::MonkeyKiss::

CBB, don't mix anything with bleach in it (cleansers) with ammonia, it is very dangerous.

p.s.  And sorry it took me so long to reply - just catching up reading, backwards.  We had some cold weather drop down on us here, and so I had to go get more shavings for the horse stalls, extra blankets for them, tarp up the chicken room's wire wall in the barn hallway, etc etc.  It's a good few hour's work, but once everything is done it's SO snuggly and wonderful in the barn!  Phew!

Anyway, I'm really glad to hear that the neti pot and rinses are already helping.  I love them, after that first one.  :)



I want to come and live in your barn!

I was talking to a woman whose sister has chickens and because of the weather and the unusual temperature in her area, opened her house and let the chickens in.

bought  a shark ..just assembled it..will let you know how I like it..

Have you tried it yet, cookie?   Have been thinking of getting one since I saw a t. v. commercial deomonstration. Can't remember brand name though.

I need one that is light weight, stands upright, and steams the carpets.  Any ideas?

::MonkeyBike:: Hello Monkeys!

Anybody make their own pasta's?  Any do's and don'ts for making pasta?  I would love to experiment and would appreciate any advice you could give. ::MonkeyWink::

Make Pasta??   ::MonkeyShocked::

Sure! I can tell you exactly how to make Pasta................ nothing to it! You buy a box of Pasta. You put on reading glasses so you can read the directions on the box. You boil a lot of salted water and pour in the Pasta from the box. Cooking time is on the box, but if it's been a bad day, just sling some pieces on the wall and when they stick, it's done! If the pieces bounce off the wall and sound like plastic when they hit, you've forgotten to boil them first, but the dogs will love you as the gobble them off the floor!!    :smt040



CBB that is how I make mine ::MonkeyDevil:: ::MonkeyDevil::

Me, too, but my hubby's grandmother & mine used to make homemade ravioli and I remember watching my Aunt and her mother making pasta in their kitchen.  That is something I have never thought to attempt.  They used to hang them on lines to dry, so to speak.  Eating them was more memorable.  Yum. 

Good luck to KC Jackie and I hope she posts the 'results' if she does make the attempt.

My son made pasta with his Grandmother, it is well worth making it yourself, the results are heavenly.

Done. I only remove an email addy if requested.  I don't recommend anyone leave theirs posted on here, but it's their choice.  I used to edit them out when I saw them automatically, but some didn't like me doing that.  Also you can ask me ahead of time and I can edit out right after we're sure the other person has it.  That way, they aren't posted on SM but a brief time.

I am (hopefully) heading down for a trial that my hubs in testifying in in Early March - He will not be allowed to watch and I am not sure they will allow me.

Don't know if anyone wants to start a thread of this. I'll leave it up to a Mod. Interesting though.

International search is on for abducted Swiss twinsBy the CNN Wire Staff

Switzerland
(CNN) -- Police in three European countries were looking Sunday for 6-year-old twin girls abducted by their father, who was found dead last week.

Interpol issued an international Yellow Notice missing persons alert Saturday for Alessia and Livia Schepp. Such notices are distributed to police in Interpol's 188 member countries to help find missing people, especially children.

The Schepp sisters were reported missing January 30 after their father, Matthias, took them from their home in St. Sulpice, near Lausanne in western Switzerland, Interpol said. He took the girls following personal problems at home, according to the state police in Vaud, which covers the area of St. Sulpice.

I was trying to decide that myself.  Not sure if there's alot we can do or find on this case being that they are in Switzerland.  I doubt they'll end up in the USA.

However, it wouldn't hurt to start a thread in MP.  I'll check and if it hasn't been done I'll start a thread.

I started a thread.  Gosh they are beautiful little girls.  I pray their dad left them someplace safe:

I came to Scared Monkeys for Caylee. I can almost tell you the day. I could not believe there could be a mother that didn't report her 2 year old daughter for 31 days. I was hooked. And I sat here day after day as more awful facts came to the surface. Caylee's sweet face was the reason I was here. Almost three years to the day the gears were already turning toward the murder of Calyee. At the time I had no knowledge of Caylee Marie Anthony lived in Orlando with such vile people. And more and more awful details came to the surface. I could not tear myself away. And then came all the selfish people who latched onto the story, and it has turned into a nasty mess, as nasty as the place her remains were left. There is nothing beautiful about that spotl

I never had any thought there were people posting here who had other thoughts. I thought we were only like minded people who only had Caylee's best interest at heart, but some had other agendas. The the whole mess of hangers on took over the case and it turned into a bigger mess. I'll comfess I was a first time poster who was very naive. At first I was Strictly a Caylee Anthony thread poster;

I was eventually a missing persons' poster, but my heart always came back to Caylee. I was told I posted too much, so I tried to keep it down, I even found there were clicks that would gang up on you  So I was banned. I was gone a full year. I greived every day. And I fought to get back, because I thought I missed my friends and they missed me. I thought I had something to share. I was overwhelmed when so may people welcomed me back and told me how they had prayed and missed me. Peoplei thought didn't even know me, told me how the missed my post, my humor, my friendship and had been praying for me. I had already known that at least two people I WOULD HAVE CALLED MY BEST FRIENDS I had at one time would never even acknowledged me, and they haven't.

I don't think I will live to see the culmination of this story. There are appeal after appeal and I am not getting any younger and my health is failing. But Caylee will be in my heart till I draw my last breath.

I am sure this post will be move as Inappropriate or O/T. Maybe I will get a special locked thread like another favored poster.I've never seen it done that way, but maybe it's a new trend.  I'm used to having mine repremand spread all out on the thread for God and everyone to see.

But I put it in Caylee's thread, just where I started. Caylee I will never forget you and pray for you till the last breath of my body. :smt049 :smt049 :smt049

I would like to leave my personal good bye here to all the posters who have taken such any interest in a sweet little girl in Texas who through no fault of her own is now probably not among us.

I would love to have COOKIE'S DREAM THAT SHE DREAMED SHE WAS HOME.  If I could dream that dream tonight I would if I could go to sleep. The hard part would be when I woke it would not be true. And that would be even sadder.

I shouldn't have let myself get so emotionally involved in this case. It hurts to leave it, I feel like I have failed her.

But I do hoPe [bTitch[/b] will come back to post. You brought a lot of good information to the thread. I hope you all can see it to it's conclusion. Leaving it here now will remove my perceived offensive posts out of itl  Bye ya'll.  ::MonkeyAngel::

GET OVER IT. Nobody is banning you or anyone else for what happened yesterday but it can't continue.   That's all I'm going to say.

Fanny, I don't know if this will help you, but just want you to know that I have always liked your post in the threads that I read and post in.

I too came here for Natalee and when the Caylee thread opened I tried to read and post there, but it didn't take me long to realize that I couldn't even read there. There was too much craziness going on among some posters, and if I had stayed in there I would have been banned also.

There are a couple of other threads I have left also, one I even started. I am too old to get so upset. I keep up with those cases through the news media and read and post in the threads that there isn't so much craziness going on.

I really hope you stay, even if you only post in musings. If you really need to leave for your own health and sanity, I understand, but you will be missed.

Fannie: So this is the 2nd time I posted in Musing. I'm not sure what's going on, and I don't want to know.

What I DO know is that every case has a roller coaster of emotions going on in it. Some things are said, and many things are taken out of context; misunderstood. In the end, we are ALL here for the children and want justice for them.

When I first came here to SM, I was so emotionally sensitive to the Kyron and Zahra case. I've learned, through the help and guidance of some Monkeys, to separate myself from that. I'm not 100% there, but I'm getting there. What I learned was to concentrate and turn my anger and drive on the people who do this to these sweet babies. I don't care whether people like or dislike me because as Klaas so eloquently put in her signature, a quote from darla, "I come here for the children, not to stroke someone's ego" - Darla.

You're here for a reason Fannie. Just like all of us.  ::MonkeyAngel::

THANK YOU !

Your post touched my heart and hit home.
Many of us at times, I feel, forget WHY we are.
Life is tough, and we all need to take life's curve balls less seriously. These cases are a huge emotiona toll on our family of posters, here.

I hope that we see Fannie return.
We can never take anything posted offensively, or it will get 2 u ! I luv u all.  ::MonkeyBike::

GET OVER IT. Nobody is banning you or anyone else for what happened yesterday but it can't continue.   That's all I'm going to say.

I did not call Desi out. I didn't ever say anything at all, as you noticed.I did notice that anytime I have been given a big red reprimand it was put right there on the offensive page where it was poste and not into a cozy little thread of it's own where no one would ever notice it. No post #. no time stamp on it. Is that the new way we are handling things now?  Now you say her post might not be so unfair after.  Looks like I got a new splat of paint on myself again..  Fanny-  I'm leaving  this for Klaas to deal with.  You've made your bed and you can now lay in it.  You could have just moved on, but you didn't.  You could have emailed Klaas to discuss her words as admin to you, but you didn't.  You're making choices Fanny Mae, and no one but you at this point is responsible for the consequences except you.  Muffy 

One more thing, tell Sassycat she needs to take her dog to the vet. There seems to be something wrong with her dogs eyes. He's too cute of a dog to leave them that way.  Why the cheap shot on a poster and her pet, Fanny?  You are WAY out of line here.  You owe Sassy an apology.  Muffy

Is that the new way we are handling things now?  Now you say her post might not be so unfair after.  Looks like I got a new splat of paint on myself again..  Fanny-  I'm leaving  this for Klaas to deal with.  You've made your bed and you can now lay in it.  You could have just moved on, but you didn't.  You could have emailed Klaas to discuss her words as admin to you, but you didn't.  You're making choices Fanny Mae, and no one but you at this point is responsible for the consequences except you.  Muffy 

One more thing, tell Sassycat she needs to take her dog to the vet. There seems to be something wrong with her dogs eyes. He's too cute of a dog to leave them that way.  Why the cheap shot on a poster and her pet, Fanny?  You are WAY out of line here.  You owe Sassy an apology.  Muffy
e-mails go both ways.
I wouldn't have thought you felt any other way, MUFFYBEE.

Fanny - I seriously wish you and Desi would stop over reacting to each other and ME.  I didn't say anything to you yesterday did I?  Actually the opposite, I though you were attacked unfairly but now that I see your reaction maybe it wasn't so unfairly afterall.

GET OVER IT. Nobody is banning you or anyone else for what happened yesterday but it can't continue.   That's all I'm going to say.

I did not call Desi out.

The Mom of my Son's Speech Therapist is in the ICU right now and is unresponsive.  My son's therapist has been a miracle for my son.  Her Mom, DH, needs a miracle right now.  Urgent prayers are needed for her.  Thank you!

Cub's therapist has no Dad or other family.  She has dedicated her life to her "children," my son included.  She is single and never misses helping a child with a test, project, etc.

Few things are more exasperating that being pulled over by CHP or the police. One of those things is being completely in the dark as to how much your traffic fines will amount to. It is rather hard to make any decision regarding your ticket, defense strategy and your plan of attack without knowing the bail amount. So, we at Ticket Busters of California have put together the following pages to help you determine the fine amount.

53 right now in SoCal.  Yesterday I think we had a high of about 74.  Supposed to be a bit colder today and maybe even some rain next week.  ::MonkeyHaHa::

 ::MonkeyShocked::   ::MonkeyTongue::

We're under a storm watch. It's supposed to start snowing this afternoon and keep-a-going all night. I'm ready for SPRING!!!

LEP........ I've got the cheap houses and South covered for you! I can't deliver the lack of winter for you though; only the promise of 4 distinct seasons. In Dec., Jan., and Feb., you'll have some snow and some years are worse than others. Come On Down!!



CBB that's the one that came thru here last night. We didn't even get a 1/2 inch of the white stuff. So maybe you will luck out too.  Temps are cold but not much of anthing else.  ::MonkeyWink::

Green Eyes and other frozen posters ~

The weather in n.e. Ohio is incredible this year.

Thank GOD I do not work, because 4 wheel drive does not
look 2 promising out there either !
It is supposed to be only -05 tonight. ONLY ? Is that
weather man smoking crack, I asked myself ?

I get my daily workout in early, daily, while we have these frigid temps.
Have u ever dealt with a 75# Basset Hound, who refuses to go out and pee ?
Stubborn by nature, but gentle, if not cautious, I could end up out there too !
Pulling and dragging him by the collar out the french doors, those 10" ears flapping along,
and a wrinkled face, "pleading, no Mom, PLEASE !" I am hanging on for dear life, tugging,
and suddenly he spots a bird, or a squirell, and of course without warning,
there go I, also, out the door in the snow. He turns and looks at me, and means to say,
"sorry." ::HelloKitty::

It's been a very cold winter all over.   ::MonkeyNoNo::

I had to laugh at your description of you and your dog trying to get him out to go potty. Our daughter has two little dogs so to take them out isn't so bad. We can carry them out and put them down they do their business and then they high tail right back to the door.  But my son has a basset and something dog that when they came to visit us during the summer. When I would walk him he pulled me all over the yard. When I wasn't fast enough I would get the look like come on come on. Son would run with him. Me I am to old to be running. ::MonkeyHaHa::

To attach a file that's not over blown you really need to resize it.  Usually the resolution from our camera is too large.  So you can use paint or another program to change the resolution to 72.  OR you can upload photos to either photobucket or flickr or some other free website and you can resize there.   I saved your photo to my desktop then uploaded into Flickr which allowed me to choose a smaller size to post.

So, I thought I would give musings a chance and see what all goes on down here.

What you all think of the new lawbreaking event that Ms. Lohan committed?  And the lovely white dress she wore to court yesterday to answer to her felony theft charge? 


http://tv.rightcelebrity.com/?p=5830

Me, personally, want her to get some real jail time so badly.  I am so sick of reading about her and her drug tests, what laws she broke, etc.

Also, was about to give her the benefit of the doubt and thought well maybe she just walked out with it on and forgot.  That theory goes out the window though because at some point that night or next morning even, she had to take her jewelry off to go to bed or take a shower, and would have seen the necklace and realize, OMG, I stole this necklace, and would have returned it if she was so innocent, THE NEXT DAY, not a week later after the store calls the police.

What ya all think?

Zoo....  agreed with you..I am sick of her too..she does need some serious jail time..she is raising her snooty nose at all of us everytime she goes into court..the rules don't apply to her!

also, stop at the JSM ban thread..we have a riot over there...
I always check in on this thread too...a lot lighter than some of the missing children/persons threads..sometimes we need to have a break from all the heartache with a good laugh here or there on other threads...See you over there too...xxx

Thanks Cookie!!   I have not figured out what the JSM ban thread is all about yet.  It looks like it started for a member who had a bit of trouble staying on topic (like me) and you all just hang out and have fun there.  When I first read it, I felt like it was intruding a bit.  Then, I started reading about April Beth Pitzer missing and her mom Gloria posting about searches she did and clothes found and I cannot imagine the pain she is going through not knowing.  That has to be the hardest for any family, the not knowing what happened.  I swear April reminds me of a supermodel, who was on Celebrity Rehab, cannot remember her name. 

And yet Lindsey Lohan flits around without a care in the world, stealing jewelery (this was not the first time she walked out with stuff, nobody has charged her yet I bet cause she forks over a ton of money).  And, I thought that lady lawyer, is her name Sean or something like that, QUIT LAST YEAR.  Why is she back?

Yes Zoo, just jump in at JSM, its fun and informing at times.  JSM is the sweetest girl and yes the thread was started because she was always going off topic, she met another monkey on here CC, they married in Nov. and we all so enjoy following along with them & their long distance marriage. 

Its a thread to share friendship, laugh and cry together, tell our funny kid, family or pet stories.  So please join in, everyone is welcome!

zoo..come on over to the JSM thread...I just parachuted in there one day myself and I never left lol..it is a very welcoming and enjoyable thread...xxxx
Yes Zoo, just jump in at JSM, its fun and informing at times.  JSM is the sweetest girl and yes the thread was started because she was always going off topic, she met another monkey on here CC, they married in Nov. and we all so enjoy following along with them & their long distance marriage. 

Its a thread to share friendship, laugh and cry together, tell our funny kid, family or pet stories.  So please join in, everyone is welcome!       

Babs

Interesting, did JSM and CC actaully meet in person to marry?  LOL.
Yes they did marry in person,  :smt008 ::MonkeyHeart:: a beautiful wedding on the beach in Florida.  If you cruise thru the thread you will see several pictures posted of the wedding. 

Well, I did give it the old college try.  There is no way to find that in that thread.  There are 24 of them.  I gave up after about page 17 of the 1st thread.  Thanks for letting me know though!!

::MonkeyDance::

I got an A+ on the test I took last Monday! ::MonkeyDance::

rockin'!!!
 what was the test about???
cool beans!

Cholesterol   ::MonkeyDevil::  ::MonkeyDevil::

Actually, everything was excellent.  I have been trying very hard to watch what I eat  ::MonkeyCool::

Cholesterol = 170 total (was around 200 my body manufactures too much so I need meds.  Was on Lipitor but had to go off)
Triglycerides = 137 (always good)
Glucose = 83 (was closer to 99)

Anyway, I gave myself an A+  ::MonkeyDance::

(http://www.nonstopgifs.com/animated-gifs/3d/3d-animated-gif-007.gif)




Congrats Klaas.  My cholesterol (last time checked and has been chronically) WAY TOO HIGH.  I think my last lab test says I was at 5 times the risk for serious consequences.  I am so not into doctors though, so never go, and I cannot afford the cholesterol meds, so I have been taking a flush-free niacin a day for ever now it seems, but I do not know if it is helping until I go check it out.  I rarely eat to begin with and am not about to give up my coffee.  That would do more damage than my drinking it does.  I would go out of my mind.

Klaas, my doctor gave me an A on my last report and told me to post it on my fridge. Mine was down from above 200 to 177.
I couldn't take Lipitor, besides the cost of it, I had all the side effects they warn about.

Zoo or anyone that can't afford Liptor or other high priced cholesterol medicine, ask your doctor about Pravastatin Sodium. It is an old cholesterol medicine, and is on the $4 list at Wal-Mart.
It has worked for me.

Yes, I had the same problem with Lipitor (besides the cost) but not until after 2 years.  Now I take Lovastatin and it works great!  It's also old and very cheap.

I believe Red may have received a warning.  I don't know if it had anything to do with that particular complaint though.

in regards to the necklace that Lindsay L. took, I wouldn't have bothered stealing it, nor would I have bought it..I think that it is kindof ugly and not worth the money and jail time that she may be facing...jmo...

I know. When I saw a picture of it, I was like WFH.  It was not even pretty.  Boring old gold chain, I personally would not pay 2500 for.

I guess LiLO felt the same way!
Wasn't worth $2500, so she took it.
Makes perfect sense, lol!

But don't you know she didn't steal it. She took it to help them with publicity as the needed help getting their name out there.  ::MonkeyTongue::

To all my monkey friends who are asking about my sister Connie . . . briefly, she suffered a massive stroke in July of 2009 and we didn't know for several days, thus none of the immediate medicines would help.  She now walks with a leg brace and a cane, cannot use her right arm or hand, and cannot speak.  Her cognitive skills are about 80% and as with all the physical, continues to improve.  She works very hard in her therapy and is quite the determined woman.
This past week she started volunteering where she receives therapy.  They have her working in the laundry, washing, drying, and sorting clothes for the patients.  She is enjoying this independence.  Her speech therapist is working with her during her time of volunteering so she can learn some more words.
Yesterday a man she previously dated casually was coming to her house to take her to lunch.  Haven't talked with her, because speaking on the phone is almost impossible.  For example, she was telling me what time he was coming and had to verbally count from 1 to 12 and then verbally count from 1 to 30.  If she messes up, she has to start again.  Anyway, he was to arrive at 12:30.
I am so proud of her and her willingness to work hard and not stay in a pity party.  We had always said we are survivors and not victims.  Additionally, we have a loving and supportive family.  Most importantly, we have faith. 
Words will never be able to express how grateful I am for all the prayers my monkey friends have offered and continue to offer for Connie.  This journey has not been easy, but God has equipped us with what it takes to move forward.  I never thought I would be on this journey again as I continue to take care of my severely disabled ex-husband (it's been 21 years).  Still, God does provide and for His blessings I remain humbled and grateful.  Again, I thank everyone for their continued prayers . . . they matter . . . they really do.

What an inspirational story, sister! Your sister sounds like a hero and I'm sure there is plenty cause for mutual admiration between you! Years ago I briefly worked with Aphasia patients trying to recoup language skills. As you describe your sister, my mind goes to a particular gentleman who I had been seeing for months and was making some progress. There was something he wanted to say each week as we worked with flash cards and I recognized the frustration at not being able to communicate it. He finally blurted out "Chicken!" while looking at a picture of a plate of breakfast food. It was a journey that led me to get his wife and play 20 questions and charades, but we finally understood that he wanted 3 eggs for breakfast instead of 2! 

The incident left me with great appreciation for what stroke victims suffer. It's not just the difficulty with communicating, but the frustration with not being understood. I think your sister is very fortunate. My heart tells me that because of you and your family, she will never face that. I'll keep Connie in my prayers, sister! HUGS!

Your story made me laugh . . . we have had similar events.  There are times when our frustration level gets high, for Connie and for me.  But we have a little signal we use -- our grandmother and her sister, our great aunt who was blind, lived with each other in their later years and when our grandmother would get frustrated with her sister she would stick her tongue out at her.  Of course, dear Auntie couldn't see it, but she seemed to know what was happening.  It always caused laughter.  So when things get tight, we stick our tongues at each other . . . meaning I love you but you're getting on my last nerve.
At da mall . . . means it's fine or really good!  Took me a long time to learn that.
Thank you so much for your kind words . . . prayer is the best we can give . . . at da mall!

Sister I have been checking the prayer thread for your update on Connie's volunteer work and saw your remarks.  Thank you for sharing.  Connie is truly an inspiration as she continues her own work towards recovery and her willingness and spirit to give what she can to others!   Bless her heart, and a big heart she has!

O/T I started a special "get well" thread for 2NJ.  We still don't know what's wrong but we have tried calling and emailing and no answer.  I'm assuming that she's in the hospital.  I have her address so if people want to leave get well wishes for her I'll print them out and send to her home in a card.

Hi, Klass  ::HelloKitty:: 

Thank you for approving my registration.  ::MonkeyKiss:: 

I'm sorry to hear that 2NJ might be ill and that you have been unable to contact her.  Have you tried to contact our member, Sharon, from Florida.  It was a while ago, but didn't they meet at a wedding reception?  Maybe they have kept in touch or even exchanged telephone numbers?  A candle was lit today for Natalee by S in Florida.  Hope this help.

 ::MonkeyDance:: ::MonkeyDance::

Thank you everyone.  She is so cute.  We named her Ruby.

The other dogs don't like her.  She wants to play with them so bad and they ignore her and we feel bad.  It's like when there is a new kid in your class and no one talks to them.

This morning two dogs were outside playing and we had Ruby up here with my older dog.  They were near the food bowl and all of a sudden the older one bit her.  She started screaming and we didn't know what happened.  I got so nervous because I could find out what happened.  I told my sister to take her down to my other sisters area and while she was still screaming I heard my other two dogs outside and the boy dog was howling.  They were at the door because they knew something happened.  I let them in and the one dog ran over to Ruby to see what happened.

Make a long story short Ruby's tooth went into her skin and it was stuck there and that's why she was screaming.  My sister saw what happened and took it out and she was ok and playing all around.

I feel bad for Ruby because she wants to play with the other dogs so bad and she runs all around the house with them.  I am hoping they will warm up to her or we will just have to wait until Ruby gets a little older.

Considering NOBODY is answering ... I would like to think that the entire family has taken a vacation or visiting out-of-town family/friends.

However ... one of 2NJ's last posts is concerning.  Were her words an underlying  attempt to share something with us.

2NJ ... Monkeys are concerned.

Also wanted say thank you for all of your first hand accounts during your time in Orlando.  Can't wait to read your and Tupelo's accounts of court next week.   Just think, you'll get an up close and personal look at all the main characters..wonder if they look the same in person as on TV?

Fanny Mae

     I miss posting with you. I sure hope you come back. I looked up your name to see what threads you're posting on and noticed your last posts were here in Musings. I have no idea what happened but hope it is something silly and can be overcome. I know when dealing with missing children's cases, most if not all of us are mothers or fathers, and want sooo much to bring justice to these victims that we ourselves get too emotionally involved. It's hard to step away. It's hard not to keep checking back. Earlier today I had to logoff and go to the gym bc all I could think about was kicking Billie in her damn face. She's such a poor excuse of a mother. Needless to say, I was getting too emotional so I had to step away. I sure hope that's what's going on with you, that you just needed a break. I can tell by your posts that you have much time invested in these cases, you have a good heart, alot of great advice, the list goes on. There are alot of great awesome people here. These children falling victim to heinous people infuriates me. The threads become emotionally charged. Everybody fights their opinions to their deaths. I know that's overboard but sometimes it seems that way. It's hard to step away from that, especially when we latch onto certain cases, for whatever reason - maybe we can relate to the child victim in some way, maybe we think gosh we could have given them a better life, maybe we seriously think we could have just made a difference...the list goes on. It becomes part of us, so we fight to protect what has become so real to us, we get into protection mode. The difference is that this is an online amateur detective site. We are not officials working on these cases. We hope in real life that we can uncover something or put 2 & 2 together to send as a tip to law enforcement - all bc we want justice for these victims. We want to make a difference, a positive one, at least that's why I come here all the time. Most of us are not professionals, although some would fight that thought, lol. I hope whatever happened blows over. Please. I was almost tempted to look back on posts but I feel it would be disrespectful to you as well as whomever else was involved...so I'm not. It's none of my business. But I do care about your opinion, and I sure as hell miss your posts. Sometimes in real life we just get so emotional that we say things we don't mean. I hope you didn't mean it when you said that was your last post. I'm worried about you and I know others are worried as well!

I miss you. Seriously.

There's a lady at work that really does a good job, and I'm glad I have her. However, she has a persistent flaw that is a particular "challenge" to everyone. She's loud, and regularly gets on a roll when she's frustrated. When that happens, she tends to rant and get bossy and worst of all, she gets a little too much in your personal space to do it.

It irritates me and everyone comes complaining on those occasions. I've finally found a training film for staff to know how to deal with it!   ::MonkeyDance:: We just need to be this ibex!!   ::MonkeyDevil::

My husband was 9 yrs older than me and when he turned 50 he joined and got me a card as his wife....I was 41 and didn't get his sense of humour at that time. Looking back it was funny.

The book "The Only Living Witness"  should be for manatory reading for Thirteen years old's.  I have never been the same since
I read the book, it really opened my mind.  I also feel self-defense should be manatory in eight grade. Parent spend money on
children but not in self-defense. I know there are links on Youtube to self-defense, there is no excuse not to teach everyone
how to protect theirselves.

thanks for the well wishes on my visit in Florida..driving back as we speak..has been wonderful...great weather...
did you read mine and Tupelo's comments in the Caylee thread about the court case yesterday..? it was an experience...Tupelo is there again today...I would have gone if I was able to...
No, everyone does not look the same as on tv...I would say that people look better in person than they do on tv...jmo...at least with the cameras that are used in the court room...I am sure that there are some cameras that are used that make flaws not shown, but not these lol...and the cameras do add weight to a person...can't emphasize that enough as both Tupelo and I were both surprised at how tiny Casey is and Cindy is not at all over weight..She is an attractive woman..and her hair is not as mushroomy looking in person...she has very thick hair...

Hello Monkeys!

I just wanted to say that I've been MIA (except for peeking in when I can) due to my father's illness.  He has been in and out of the hospital and had many trips to doctors.  I'm so thankful for his good days and thankful that he's had a few of those lately.  His latest trip to the hospital was just last week, and he was there an entire week.

I was able to read here occasionally, but never have time to enter a discussion.  I'm so thankful for the updates, and my heart still aches for all these children.  I thought I'd explain my sudden drop off the monkey bus here because I just know that ya'll missed seeing me shake the junk in my trunk.

Klaas,


CBB & Muffy

Thanks  ::MonkeyAngel::


Last week was the 1 year anniversary of my aunt's death.  She was one of my best friends!  She was mom's younger sister and she was only 14 years older than me.  Six months before that my mom lost her oldest sister.  Now, my dad has a terminal illness. All of them are too young to die!  It's really scary that both my aunts should have lived at least another 20-25 years.  My dad is young too.

When I learned my aunt had cancer I vowed to never turn down an invitation from her if I could help it.  I always made time for each and every phone call, even when I was extremely busy, and sometimes they would last for hours.  She lived for a little over a year after her diagnosis, and I didn't have any regrets. 

At the same time, I also made that same vow about my dad.  He wasn't sick then, it's just that he can be really chatty and he tells the same stories over and over, ::MonkeyHaHa:: but I vowed to listen each time as if I'd never heard them.  Now, he gets really testy because of his meds, but I've never lost my temper with him (okay, at least not until I hung up the phone)  ::MonkeyDevil::bHe can be really really grouchy.

But, I know that when my dad goes to Heaven, I will not wish I'd spent more time with him, or wish I would have let him tell me those stories instead of telling him he'd already told me fiftysixmilliongazzillion times.  My dad knows I love him, and he's very scared and I can't think of anything that would mean more to him than giving him what I value the most (besides people)... my time.  ::MonkeyAngel::

So, no regrets! Life is short.  Love hard, and love much.

I've recently started playing "words with friends" (it's just like Scrabble) on my phone during the long waits I have in dr's offices and such.  I have thought of you, and thought I'd love to play you if only you had a cell phone, since playing in person is out of the question.  ::MonkeyDevil::

Thanks  ::MonkeyAngel::


Last week was the 1 year anniversary of my aunt's death.  She was one of my best friends!  She was mom's younger sister and she was only 14 years older than me.  Six months before that my mom lost her oldest sister.  Now, my dad has a terminal illness. All of them are too young to die!  It's really scary that both my aunts should have lived at least another 20-25 years.  My dad is young too.

When I learned my aunt had cancer I vowed to never turn down an invitation from her if I could help it.  I always made time for each and every phone call, even when I was extremely busy, and sometimes they would last for hours.  She lived for a little over a year after her diagnosis, and I didn't have any regrets. 

At the same time, I also made that same vow about my dad.  He wasn't sick then, it's just that he can be really chatty and he tells the same stories over and over, ::MonkeyHaHa:: but I vowed to listen each time as if I'd never heard them.  Now, he gets really testy because of his meds, but I've never lost my temper with him (okay, at least not until I hung up the phone)  ::MonkeyDevil::bHe can be really really grouchy.

But, I know that when my dad goes to Heaven, I will not wish I'd spent more time with him, or wish I would have let him tell me those stories instead of telling him he'd already told me fiftysixmilliongazzillion times.  My dad knows I love him, and he's very scared and I can't think of anything that would mean more to him than giving him what I value the most (besides people)... my time.  ::MonkeyAngel::

So, no regrets! Life is short.  Love hard, and love much.

OK, I should have mentioned that it's not allowed to make Betty Boop cry. O4Bull, you have your priorities absolutely straight and you have the wisdom to realize what's important and what isn't. The things you are doing are eternal and stretch across the confines we live in. The time and love you share go on and live even when our loved ones cross over. I'm well connected with my family by love across the divide, and you will never live with regret. Heartfelt Hugs coming your way.    ::MonkeyKiss::

I just wanted to post this here because Greeneyes is always in Musings... she couldn't post so I told her I would

::MonkeyTears:: PLEASE pray for Greeneyes. She just found out her sister has a staph infection and will more than likely not leave the hospital. Breaks my heart, thought her sister was doing so much better today. Thanks for any prayers, my heart is breaking for her. TIA JSM



OMG! Thank you for posting, JSM! Prayers for Green Eyes!

Evening Monkeys

I want to thank JSm for posting about my sister.
And Thank Lake Eris Princess, 04Bull, CBB, Muffy Bee and Cookie for the prayers and kind words for my sister, myself and family.

It's been a hard time the last couple days.  My sister had her surgery a couple months ago. She was doing well. Went home and seemed to be doing okay. Then she started feeling bad again and they put her back in the hospital. At first they said she had pneumonia. We all thought okay she should be okay. She seemed to be getting better and then things started going down hill. First one thing and another. After many test the doctors told her kids she has a staph infection though out her body. And what they thought was pneumonia was her lungs and lung wall cavity are filled with Staph and it has spread to her other organs.  To say we were all in a state of shock is putting it mildly.

They are making her comfortable and waiting for her to pass away. Or as CBB has started the cross over. I know our parents will be there for her and she will be a better place with no more illness and pain.

Thank you all it really has helped to read all your kinds words. God Bless you all. ::MonkeyAngel::
Thank you Klaas for putting JSM's post in the prayer thread.

CBB I am hanging in there.  It's hard to lose a loved one at any time.  I am so glad we went up to see her and got to spend time with her when she had her surgery.  All of us kids were together and spent lots of time remembering our growing up years.  There was lots of laughter. That's how I will remember her with a smile and laughter.

Thanks CBB

All of them are too young to die!  It's really scary that both my aunts should have lived at least another 20-25 years.  My dad is young too.

When I learned my aunt had cancer I vowed to never turn down an invitation from her if I could help it.  I always made time for each and every phone call, even when I was extremely busy, and sometimes they would last for hours.  She lived for a little over a year after her diagnosis, and I didn't have any regrets. 

At the same time, I also made that same vow about my dad.  He wasn't sick then, it's just that he can be really chatty and he tells the same stories over and over, ::MonkeyHaHa:: but I vowed to listen each time as if I'd never heard them.  Now, he gets really testy because of his meds, but I've never lost my temper with him (okay, at least not until I hung up the phone)  ::MonkeyDevil::bHe can be really really grouchy.

But, I know that when my dad goes to Heaven, I will not wish I'd spent more time with him, or wish I would have let him tell me those stories instead of telling him he'd already told me fiftysixmilliongazzillion times.  My dad knows I love him, and he's very scared and I can't think of anything that would mean more to him than giving him what I value the most (besides people)... my time.  ::MonkeyAngel::

So, no regrets! Life is short.  Love hard, and love much.

Thank you for sharing O4Bull, I admire you!

Your sharing made me think of a friend of mine who recently lost her dad.  In the last several months when she would visit him, he would tell her I don't know who you are...but I know that I love you.  It was very hard for her.  Her dad only recognized one of his children in those months, she was the oldest by several years.  My friend shared about spending the night with him in the nursing home and going along with his believing they were on a camping trip.  They looked at the stars, did some night fishing...and just listened to the crickets chirping for a while.  She said wherever he was in his mind when she would visit, she just went there with him too.  I know it was hard for her as well, but now that he's passed...I also know she has no regrets.

God bless you!   ::MonkeyAngel::

Thanks, Klaas. This whole thing makes me so mad! Wouldn't you think there could be common purpose of decency when it comes to missing and murdered children so that information shared wouldn't be an issue?

Hang in there, Red, and I too want to thank you for giving us this special place. By just being on the right side of this issue, you've already won in every way that really matters, but I'm looking forward to a forum party when you come out on top! Thanks for giving us an opportunity to assist in the financial demands; it just makes us more of a family!   ::MonkeyWink::

Hi monkey friends. I have been n and out the past 2 days and have not been here much.
I akways know when I get the primate withdrawl symptoms from not being on the forum.

Prayers are needed desperately for my 74 year old sister, who is in the end stages of congestive heart failure. She was taken back into the hospital very early this am. That is a delicate disease I think. One never knows  if the patient wil respond to treatment or not. EACH time this happens her weakens more, and u know the rest. So very difficult for me to lose her, as she was always like a 2nd Mother to me. She was 17 when our Mom had me ! I was her dearest rag doll all of my life. Letting go is the hard part, but I am praying that God's will be done, NOT what I "think" I need by being selfish and demanding she remain alive, miserable or not.

It will be 5 years in 8/2011 that I buried my Mom. That is the hardest that we are expected to do, so I thought...... ::MonkeyNoNo::

Klaas, I'm going to donate for Red. I love this site & I'm very proud to call it my cyber home. I have to wait til this weekend when our bills clear our a/c. I have PayPal but I strictly use it for eBay. I personally think the donate button should stay there forever. If Red decides to take money through the mail, please post an address, po box, or something. Sometimes that could generate more collection bc it can be anonymous. Just thought I'd throw that out there.

Have a nice night everyone!

I have my binoculars.  Waiting to see if I can see anything.  We are way to high here for damage to us but people living right on the water might have problems.  They really don't expect too much problems here.

I rarely stray off the main threads. I am so saddened in the passing of 2NJ, I left a message there.

I am concerned about my daughters little dog. Her blood work from 3 months ago checked out fine. She gets her teeth cleaned every 3 months and they do blood work prior to that. Motorbike was acting like she did not feel well and tests showed elevated liver enzymes (extremely high...900)... Long story short (yes, I can do that lol) the problem might be contaminated food. Is there a place where possibly contaminated food can be sent and tested?

Contaminated dog food?  Have you checked to see if the food has been recalled already?  Maybe you could check with the FDA?  What kind of food was it?

Loving Natalee
A Mother’s Testament of Hope and Faith
By Beth Holloway

I NEVER ASK HIM WHY


Pages 100: He entrusted me with her care for eighteen years.  Now I must trust Him to care for her.  So I never ask Him why.  Why Natalee?  Why me?  I don't ask.  To do that undermines faith.  Instead, I form an "acceptance trust" with Him there on the windy hillside.
 
NOT THE WORK THAT HAS TO BE DONE.  JUST THE BURDEN

Page 103: I think about what just happened, pondering the human spirit.  Apparently it can withstand a lot more than I every dreamed possible.  Mom is right; God is good.  All my life I've heard people of many faiths talk about "taking it to the cross and turning it over to the Lord" or just simply "turning it over.  Not the work that has to be done.  Just the burden.  I cast it upon Him so that I may be sustained.  And I am renewed, resilient.  Thankful for however long this resurgence in energy will carry me.  I will pick up one foot and put it down.  Then the other one will follow.  I will breathe.  There is much to be done.
 
I'M TAKING LEAVE OF THE ISLAND BUT ...

Page 189:    It's the proverbial, Biblical conflict between good and evil.  It's very, very hard to fight evil because it constantly changes form and you never know who your enemies are.  And evil is always two steps ahead. From the outset we never had a chance.  But we didn't know it.  I'm taking leave of the island, but not from the work yet to be done.
 
MY PLEDGE

Page 200:  My child.  My beautiful daughter.  I can't save her.  It's too late.  Natalee is gone. And second to the great tragedy of losing her is if we fail to learn from what has happened.  I could be any parent in the world.  And no parent should ever go through this experience.  Natalee could be anyone's daughter.  And in these thoughts a new path is made clear.  There is something I can do.  Many people reached out to us, and I can now reach back to them.  It might be too late to save Natalee, but it's not too late to save others.  And it's time now to make good on my pledge to stand before high-school and college students, law enforcement professinals, victims' rights groups, travelers of all ages, and anyone interested in personal safety to share Natalee's story and our hard lessons, so that others might learn from them.

A CONSCIOUS DECISION EVERY MORNING

Page 219: I have to make difficult choices every day.  I have to make a conscious decision every morning when I wake up not to be bitter, not to live in resentment and let anger control me.  It's not easy.  I ask God to help me.
 
FAITH WILL SEE ME THROUGH

Pages 230/231:  I can't say for sure if we'll ever know that answer to whether my daughter is alive or not.  I know it doesn't look good.  But just as that old metal spiral staircase rose from the ashes when our lake house burned down, so too faith stands strong in the remains of this devastating loss.  And just as my Dad built another house around that staircase, I will build another life around hope and faith.  It won't ever be the same.  But I pray that it will, at the very least, be useful.  The hope that filled Natalee's heart fills mine, and I will press on.  Faith got me up this morning, and faith will see me through tomorrow.  And the next day.  And the next.
 
EVERY CHANCE WE GET

Page 232:  Without hope we are hungry. And on a very deep level, desperate. But no one has to be. What's so amazing is that we can feed each other. We can help each other. We have the power to give resilience to others who are fading. We can nourish each other's spirits and save one another from defeat and despair. Every one of us possesses this power to "love thy neighbor," and we need to use it every chance we get.

Psalm 118:24
This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

WE HAVE THIS MOMENT


Tender words, gentle touch and a good cup of coffee
And someone who loves me and wants me to stay
Hold them dear while they’re near don’t wait for tomorrow
To look back and wish for today.

We have this moment to hold in our hands
And to touch as it slips through our fingers like sand
Yesterday's gone and tomorrow may never come
But we have this moment, today.
 
Bill and Gloria Gaither

This HAS NOT been a good day!  Had a fire in my chimney and had to call the volunteer fire dept.  They sent out two different dept's.  My husband got out and turned the hose on the cap of the chimney and put it out before the fire dept. got here  (the fire dept is 9/10 mile from my home).  I am still shaking.  It pays to have the chimney cleaned every year and we did not have it done this year.  Bad Bad Bad.  Oh, one of the fireman fell through our attic into the garage.  I though he killed himself.  Needless to say we have a big hole in the ceiling in our garage.  They felt really bad about it.  Now I am afraid to go to sleep tonight.

Blue Moon - I'm so sorry!  You know we don't often have fires in our fireplace, maybe once or twice a year but in the 16 years we have lived here we have NEVER had our chimney cleaned.  I think about it every year. 

I'm glad your husband put the fire out before it caused any more damage and so sorry the fireman fell thru the attic into the garage.  At least he didn't fall into your livin room or bedroom.

I've been thinking the same thing as we use the fireplace during the coldest days here and we really need to have it cleaned....My sister-in-law lives in Fallbrook and they are so concerned about fires etc., where they live.

Well they had the fireplace lite for Thanksgiving gathering a couple of years ago.  Her husband made sure fire was out before going to bed, middle of the night their dog woke them their bedroom was in flames (upstairs), they got out but took a while for fire dept. to get up the top of the mountain, did save a good portion of the house but she lost so many antiques, her brand new grand piano, such a mess......Turned out a squirrel had been using the screening at the top as a nest which clogged the flue etc., anyways guess we should all be more vigilant.

Heartbreaking...   ::MonkeyTears::

That is heartbreaking.  There was an update.

UPDATE: CNN and the UK Telegraph have both reported that the dogs have been rescued since the footage aired, and are both receiving veterinary care; the more seriously wounded dog is at a clinic in the city of Mito, while the protective spaniel-type dog is receiving care at a shelter in the same town.

But I do hope they'll bring them back together soon, I know they must be worried about each other.

The amount of radiation that has reached the West Coast are billions of time below the level that would be health threatening.  There is no risk.

Righthaven loses second fair use ruling over copyright lawsuits
Las Vegas Sun ^ | Friday, March 18, 2011 | 4:56 p.m. | By Steve Green

Posted on Friday, March 18, 2011 7:55:02 PM by redreno

An Oregon nonprofit did not infringe on copyrights when it posted without authorization an entire Las Vegas Review-Journal story on its website, a judge ruled Friday.

U.S. District Judge James Mahan said during a hearing he planned to dismiss, on fair use grounds, a copyright infringement lawsuit filed against the Center for Intercultural Organizing (CIO), in Portland, Ore.

Please let us know what he says Cookie  ::MonkeyKiss::
I haven't watched NG in a long time either but i was flipping through the cable news channels(like i do constantly) & happened to see that she was now covering the Japanese crisis instead of the missing! Her ratings are prob being crushed by the competition. She is bordering on fear mongering & says she doesn't believe anything the govt in Japan (me either) or the U.S. is saying! All you have to do is watch what our military is doing over there, the evacuation zones & where they're stationed.   There are 600 americans stranded who want out & we're sending help to get them, but over here, Good Lord, you could drive yourself crazy worrying about things that will never happen! Chernobyl's plume floated over the U.S. too & it was a hell of a lot worse than Japan(at least up to now)! You have to just stay informed, keep a level head & pray!   ::MonkeyAngel::

Rescue Operations in Japan Target the Country's Furry Friends

It’s a united inueffort.

Animal rescue groups have joined forces to help the untold number of dogs -- inu - in Japanese, cats and other furry friends have been lost and injured in the tsunami and earthquake that devastated Japan one week ago.

Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue and Support, or JEARS is made up of three Japanese animal welfare groups, Animal Friends Niigata, Japan Cat Network, and HEART-Tokushima to coordinate relief efforts for animals.

“We want to take those pets and hopefully reunite them with their families once the families can figure out what they want to do,” said David Wybenga of Japan Cat Network.

Nope, today?

Found out they were two small ones, but I was close and the mobile home jolted. Sort of like the cat jumping on the bed but from underneath the bed. Had more damage from rain. So overwhelmed and down. The city where I live has grants for homeowners. I have to save $ for my part but will get a new roof hopefully by May 1. I am so tired of emptying pots and pans. Repaired Kitchen in Feb. Patched roof, again. Leaked and all ruined.

Fibromyalgia stiffness increased. Will get required medicine tomorrow. Can't wait for new roof... I am 70 and actually got on the roof in Feb. Nice view. Can see the mountains. It was so peaceful up there! I am afraid of heights so had trouble coming up the ladder and down, but a nice new neighbor helped me.

Get allot of peace checking in here with the Monkey Family.

When new roof goes on I can decorate! Already have the stuff stored in boxes. Am like a little kid at Christmas. Dog, 14, blind is doing fine. Rain leaks and the heaviness of the rain upset the cat. We had 6 inches over the weekend and big wind gusts. Guess you did too! Vote for rain vs. earthquakes.

Lost the flowers on my Aronia bushes so guess I won't have berries in the fall.

Well, that's it! Love and prayers to all Monkey Family!

Thanks Klaas for the info and also about the legal fees for Red. Just donated. Not much.will try more as time goes on. I donate, as all of you did, to the latest disasters our churches, Red Cross and Salvation Army. I have been in 3 disasters and the Salvation Army has always been the first ones there. In the tornado in Indianapolis in 2002 they let me volunteer with them! I as so honored that they trusted me.

The main truck came down from Chicago. One of the volunteers on it gave me her 911 pin! If I were younger I'd go through their training.

Reminds me.. need to charge my ham radio.

Everyone keep safe, prayers to all.

Klaas, I've seen more earthquakes along the Newport-Inglewood et al fault and just out in the ocean; more than I can remember before.

Would recommend everyone take their local CERT class. You only have to do what you can and you don't have to buy all the stuff at once. I couldn't do the lifting and that a PTSD attack before going into the burned out fire dept. building, but I loved the lifting of the cement. Must been the genes from the log cabin days.

I get my N95 masks from beprepared.com and follow their sales, adding a little at a time for the emergency food and water boxes. Our local PD said to have those little boxes of water, so you can give them when a neighbor asks for water and have your big supply to yourself (my words here)

CERT says help yourself first, then your family and then others if you wish.

PS, IMO you can survive eating oatmeal out of the round box if you have too. I try to get cans of food like soup, tuna that have self opening cans incase the can opener fails or I can't get to them.

But not organized like I should be. I can't believe that some of my neighbors don't even have a flashlight!

Straub case and found that, then noticed Mrs. Red's name while browsing Missing/Deceased and saw Chandra Levy was started by her.  Alway wondering about folks.  I come to care about people like the people I read everyday and I'm a little weird cause I start to consider them friends and care for them.  My wondering and asking about them isn't really because I'm nosey but because I care.  I'm so loyal to SM and BoC that I only follow the links provided and never go searching other forums on my own.  I look at True Crime cause it's a link from Blink.  Now she doesn't usually like to give info about other posters (I've only asked have you seen/heard from them or are they okay, nothing personal, ever)but that is as far as I've gone.  I do like blogs/forums from regular posters like DoubleD, etc., but only on a specific case here and there. That is why i was wonder about Mrs. Red and Mock.  Only the avi's are similar, nothing else.  I travel in small circles, lol!

OMG NO, I am not married to RED nor am I related to him in any way. I'm really just like you and everyone else here at SM.  I stumbled upon SM during the Natalee Holloway case and stayed. 

Now for Mrs. Red.  I'm not at liberty to nor do I really know what happened to Mrs. Red but I seriously doubt she is posting on that "Mock" forum.

I used to watch the Bold and the Beautiful soap but stopped years ago when it kept getting weirder and weirder..marriage after marriage with family members etc..anyways, I happened to scroll through channels and happened upon the show..Brooke and Taylor have ruined their once beautiful faces with too much filler and botox to their faces..it was shocking after not seeing them for years..don't know if anyone else watches the show...

I used to watch All My Children too when my sons were little..that Erica...what a character she is...

Personally I am a Young and Restless groupie. LOL I have watched the soap since it debuted with 5 main characters about 37 years ago ?

When my husband worked afternoon shift we BOTH watched it. It is of NO benefit, except that it entertains me,

and makes me very greatful to be married to the same person for more than a year or so. ha ha

The Abbots, and others on there have sooo much money and alays are miserable.

Hi NoRose,

Yes Nikki is drinking again.  The show has very good writers, it is just they lean on yesterday's story lines.

I skip the Y&R and just read the "spoilers".  This episode is where Nikki brings Victor a birthday gift.

Victor, unfortunately, is remarried, I do not agree with that story line.  I guess I need to write my own soap opera :)
I don't care for the story lines.

Hi Lake Erie Princess, NoRose and Monkey's,


Who are the other original cast members, please?  Jill was replaced, Jack was replaced...about twenty years, ago.

I watched the show more frequently when William Bell was the head writer    ::MonkeyAngel::     

He had self-discipline and the patience to see an story line through.  I think the writer's today are wasting the talent of Melody

Thomas, she is drinking liquor from a flask,  I could do that!  ::MonkeyHaHa::  IMO

Throughout the years, the Y & R writers do, IMO attempt to get a message across to the viewers.
Nickki drinking out of a flask is a classic, & wonderful message for our
days and times. She is the picture of relapsed into the realm of alcoholic drinking again. No remorse, and can't stop. I think that there r probably a lot of females out there,
actively "practicing," and able to relate.

I believe the original cast members were: Liz Foster, and daughter Jill. Also Victor Newman, Katherine and Phillip Chancellor. As weeks went by they added Jill's brothers, Nikki, Nina and young baby Chancelor.

Since Mr. Bell died, the new writer seems to love bringing people back, wh were supposed to be dead, and then they also  like to use ghosts, (like: John Abbot).

Thank-you for the original list of characters.  So...there was a Philip Chancellor? 

The writers strike, fudged up the Y&R (my opinion).  The latest head writers, are trying to straighten things out and bring back
the Abbott family (as you mentioned) the ghost of Mr. Abbot. 

I did watch it today, Y &R has so many iron's in the fire. I will continue to read the "spoilers" for another week or two. 

Geez, I don't know of anyone with a drinking problem.  They do reach out to viewers... if NN drank mouthwash, it would be more interesting, I don't  mean to be mean, but...it is just so run into the ground with her lack of will power.

I need a hero in these soaps, not a weak woman... ::CowboySmiley::

OT the Y&R bought back Cricket!  Holy Moly...I could not believe Cricket was back.  Y&R bought back Phillip from Twenty years
ago.  I remember writing the Y&R (twenty years, ago) suggesting a few story lines  ::MonkeyHaHa:: they wrote back an idjet letter...saying, they would take note of my suggestions.  I suggested at that time to bring back Philip (as a twin)...they did not
follow through on my suggestion  ::MonkeyHaHa:: they did bring back Philip (recently) but not a Twin.  Philip never had a Twin
it was just a creative suggestive of mine, they ignored.   :o

Va. parents use drywall to trap children in room, one escapes, say cops

(CBS/WUSA/AP) BRISTOW, Va. - A Virginia mother and father were charged with felony child abuse and neglect after their 4-year-old daughter ran to the home of a neighbor who found the girl's siblings naked and trapped in a room filled with feces and urine, according to police.


John M. Robey, 33, and Christina D. Moore, 26, of Bristow, west of Washington, were being held Monday without bond in the Prince William County jail.


The three children - the 4-year-old, a 2-year-old and 4-month-old - were placed in protective custody, police said.


According to CBS affiliate WUSA, police say the couple on Saturday had placed the kids naked in a bedroom and nailed a five-foot-high piece of drywall in the doorway.


The 4-year-old managed to escape to a neighbor's house. The neighbor got the other kids out of the house and called police.


Police found the room where the kids were kept covered in human waste and the couple at home in another part of the house.


Prince William County police spokesman Jonathan Perok said Monday that it does not appear the kids were kept in the room for extended periods of time, but said the investigation continues and the couple has not cooperated.


The Woodbridge News & Messenger reported that in June 2005, Moore was charged with felony child neglect after her twin 22-month-old boys were found walking alone.

LEP...that article about the children is so sad and it makes me so angry! Thank God that little 4 yr old was savvy enough to escape and to get help..can you imagine if this little child would have been caught trying to escape what these morons would have done to this child? probably beat him/her within an inch of his/her life! 
I wish I could take them...
I hope that they are placed in a wonderful home.
and kudos to the neighbor who went in and rescued the children!

Y & R was the first soap I really got into so many years ago...my mom watched/watches it.  I don't see it very often but I can get right into the swing of things when I do.  I'd also check in on the Bold and the Beautiful occasionally too...just because.

Hi Green Eyes,

Some of you may remember my Blondie, our blonde lab that I accidentally backed over last summer.  I'm thankful today that she fully recovered from that accident and that we were blessed with many more months of her sweet presence.  She started having seizures a few weeks ago and when they became frequent we had to put her on medicine to control them.  In a few days the seizures subsided but other problems became more apparent, and were getting worse.  She was suffering, struggling to breathe at times...she couldn't get up on her own anymore...and eventually became incontinent.  Although it broke our hearts to do it, we took her in and with all of her humans that loved her around her...she was put to sleep this past week.  It was one of the hardest things my DH and I have ever had to decide to do, but we couldn't bear to see her suffer any longer.  She was absolutely the sweetest girl ever, she was a mother figure to the rest of our fur babies...she loved them all unconditionally...as she did all of us. 

We are all so sad...we loved her and miss her so much; but will always be thankful to have been blessed with her in our lives.

So true LEP, we've lost some too over the years and it is always so hard.  Blondie was an outside dog for the most part.  But as she got older and we could tell that she couldn't see and hear as well, we started bringing her inside at night...or if the weather was bad.  DH would let her out in the mornings, or if it was too cold or wet...I would let her out at lunch.  We'd been doing that so long that I don't even remember how long ago we started that, but she liked that arrangement.  She loved sleeping in the sun, and wondering around all over the place out here; and when she was inside you would have thought she was an inside dog!

I know that no matter how they go, it's hard.  This was the first time that we had to make the decision so that there would be no more suffering, and right now it seems harder than when we've lost others.  I don't know if it will always feel that way... 

Your babies are getting older, and their day will come.  You've been blessed with many good years of companionship with them, and all you can do is show them how much you love them every day.  I know that Blondie knew we loved her, without a doubt...but missing her is still so hard right now.

A neighbor passed on (few months ago) and her husband donated a box of Swan's cake flour to a food bank. I remarked that the Mrs. will live on when someone bakes a cake.  I hope he understood that.

We had the bad storms this morning, I hate them too!  At about 8am, it was as dark as night.  We had two waves of storms, with horrible wind...hail...and lots of lightning.  My furbabies were still upset by it all when I came home to check on them at lunch.  I'd worried about them all morning.  I saw a few trees down along the way coming home but we were fortunate and had no damage from what I can tell. 

I'm very thankful for the rain that finally washed the pollen off of everything.   ::MonkeyCool::

Hi GE! The storms have subsided for now, but there is still occasional thunder. It drives KuBear absolutely nuts and she shakes and stands on my face (literally!) if I'm laying down. She's paced and panted for hours and I don't know who's more worn out between us!

it is always hard to loose one of our furbabies...I think that it does help to have others though..and they do grieve for the loss of their 'sibling'..our surviving dog goes up to every white dog that he sees and sniffs with his tail wagging hoping that it is our Abby who went to Heaven almost 2 years ago..Benji doesn't see that well anymore, but he still can tell when it is a white dog with small stature like Abby..it is so sweet and so sad at the same time..he still misses her..and we do too..

Post by: crazybabyborg on April 06, 2011, 03:26:27 AM
I posted this a few years ago, but I feel like it's the right time to post it again. When my son was little and we had just lost the family dog, he asked me if "Puddin" was in Heaven. Because I had recently seen an interview with a family who believed the answer to that was an absolute "Yes", I was able to agree with them and assure my son that Puddin' was indeed in Heaven.

Here's the interviewed family's story: Jean and Todd were the parents of 7 year old, Cody. Cody had been moping around for weeks after his lifelong pet Sheltie escaped the back yard and was hit by a car. They had always been inseparable. They slept together, played and ran together, and "Buddy" was always there to lick away tears or share a sandwich with Cody.

There was a large Hickory tree in the back yard that Buddy used to lay under on warm days to enjoy the shade. Cody decided to climb that tree. It was something he had never done before, and something his Mother would never have guessed as she was fixing dinner inside. She heard nothing, but when dinner was almost ready she went to the back door to tell Cody to wash up. She spotted Cody, unconscious, laying lifelessly at the base of the Hickory tree. The back of his head was bleeding and his leg was sprawled at an awkward angle.

At the hospital, Jean and Todd were told that Cody's brain was swelling and it was interfering with involuntary functions. He required emergency surgery and his condition was dire. The hope was that by removing the top of the skull, pressure that could be causing the depression of breathing and heart function, could be relieved.

When the section of skull was removed, the surgeon saw what he hoped he would not. There was bleeding in Cody's brain to the extent that an effort had to be made to stop it. Cody's heart stopped an hour into the surgery. There was a vallient effort to save him. The surgeon called out for ice to immerse Cody's body in as the efforts to restart his heart continued. 9 minutes later, a faint heartbeat registered on the monitor. Cody was alive.

It was days before Cody was able to open his eyes and talk, but when he began, his parents were amazed at what he wanted to tell them. In the presense of the surgeon, he relayed to them the scene in the operating room. He said he watched from the ceiling as everybody was putting ice around him and he told his Mom what she was wearing in the waiting room. Cody said he kept going up and he became excited as he told them about the most beautiful place he'd ever been in! He said he was in a field of the greenest grass he'd ever seen and that everything seemed to have sunshine coming out of it! He said he was just standing in the field taking everything in; the colors were awesome and everything he saw was so full of life! There was a rainbow in the sky and a road winding up one of the rolling hills. That's when Cody heard it; that's when Cody heard that familiar excited bark....... and saw Buddy top the hill at a full run, tongue out and tail wagging, making a bee line for Cody! Cody matched Buddy's run toward him and they fell and rolled together in the living grass amid licks and laughter.

Cody insisted that the time there was more than 9 minutes, but couldn't determine how long he and Buddy played. What he did know was that he became aware it was time to go back, and that Buddy seemed to know it too. What Cody also knew was that he would be able to return someday and that Buddy would be there to meet him, just as he had done this time.


That was the story that brought to my mind what Jesus answered the disciples when they asked where He was going. He said, "I go to prepare a place for you; if it were not so, I would have told you."

Do dogs have a soul? I don't know. What I do know is that no one knows me, my son, or Cody better than He who created me. He knows my heart and communicates with us on that level. I know that He bears the scars of the sacrifice His love for me brought. If I believe what He said, and I do, then I absolutely believe that the place He prepares for me will restore all that has brought me joy and more! I believe Cody, not because of the remarkable things he knew somehow, but because the nature of God is so evident in his experience! There was no Charlton Heston voice or blinding light......... there was Buddy. Nothing could have been more custom tailored or better prepared. I believe Cody is well understood and well loved. I believe Buddy is happy and waiting on him.

The surgeon called out for ice to immerse Cody's body in as the efforts to restart his heart continued. 9 minutes later, a faint heartbeat registered on the monitor. Cody was alive.

It was days before Cody was able to open his eyes and talk, but when he began, his parents were amazed at what he wanted to tell them. In the presense of the surgeon, he relayed to them the scene in the operating room. He said he watched from the ceiling as everybody was putting ice around him and he told his Mom what she was wearing in the waiting room. Cody said he kept going up and he became excited as he told them about the most beautiful place he'd ever been in! He said he was in a field of the greenest grass he'd ever seen and that everything seemed to have sunshine coming out of it! He said he was just standing in the field taking everything in; the colors were awesome and everything he saw was so full of life! There was a rainbow in the sky and a road winding up one of the rolling hills. That's when Cody heard it; that's when Cody heard that familiar excited bark....... and saw Buddy top the hill at a full run, tongue out and tail wagging, making a bee line for Cody! Cody matched Buddy's run toward him and they fell and rolled together in the living grass amid licks and laughter.

Cody insisted that the time there was more than 9 minutes, but couldn't determine how long he and Buddy played. What he did know was that he became aware it was time to go back, and that Buddy seemed to know it too. What Cody also knew was that he would be able to return someday and that Buddy would be there to meet him, just as he had done this time.


That was the story that brought to my mind what Jesus answered the disciples when they asked where He was going. He said, "I go to prepare a place for you; if it were not so, I would have told you."

Do dogs have a soul? I don't know. What I do know is that no one knows me, my son, or Cody better than He who created me. He knows my heart and communicates with us on that level. I know that He bears the scars of the sacrifice His love for me brought. If I believe what He said, and I do, then I absolutely believe that the place He prepares for me will restore all that has brought me joy and more! I believe Cody, not because of the remarkable things he knew somehow, but because the nature of God is so evident in his experience! There was no Charlton Heston voice or blinding light......... there was Buddy. Nothing could have been more custom tailored or better prepared. I believe Cody is well understood and well loved. I believe Buddy is happy and waiting on him.

A very emotional and happy story ::MonkeyAngel:: ::MonkeyAngel::
Thank You for sharing.

I posted this a few years ago, but I feel like it's the right time to post it again. When my son was little and we had just lost the family dog, he asked me if "Puddin" was in Heaven. Because I had recently seen an interview with a family who believed the answer to that was an absolute "Yes", I was able to agree with them and assure my son that Puddin' was indeed in Heaven.

Here's the interviewed family's story: Jean and Todd were the parents of 7 year old, Cody. Cody had been moping around for weeks after his lifelong pet Sheltie escaped the back yard and was hit by a car. They had always been inseparable. They slept together, played and ran together, and "Buddy" was always there to lick away tears or share a sandwich with Cody.

There was a large Hickory tree in the back yard that Buddy used to lay under on warm days to enjoy the shade. Cody decided to climb that tree. It was something he had never done before, and something his Mother would never have guessed as she was fixing dinner inside. She heard nothing, but when dinner was almost ready she went to the back door to tell Cody to wash up. She spotted Cody, unconscious, laying lifelessly at the base of the Hickory tree. The back of his head was bleeding and his leg was sprawled at an awkward angle.

At the hospital, Jean and Todd were told that Cody's brain was swelling and it was interfering with involuntary functions. He required emergency surgery and his condition was dire. The hope was that by removing the top of the skull, pressure that could be causing the depression of breathing and heart function, could be relieved.

When the section of skull was removed, the surgeon saw what he hoped he would not. There was bleeding in Cody's brain to the extent that an effort had to be made to stop it. Cody's heart stopped an hour into the surgery. There was a vallient effort to save him. The surgeon called out for ice to immerse Cody's body in as the efforts to restart his heart continued. 9 minutes later, a faint heartbeat registered on the monitor. Cody was alive.

It was days before Cody was able to open his eyes and talk, but when he began, his parents were amazed at what he wanted to tell them. In the presense of the surgeon, he relayed to them the scene in the operating room.

I have just now read about Blonde.  I am so sorry.  The journey and sadness, toward the end, is indescribable.  We had to make that difficult decision two years ago.  Our chocolate lab was 15 yrs. old with many of the problems your Blonde experienced. I still feel the loss.  :cry: :cry:

Thank you Buckeye.   ::MonkeyAngel::

I'm so sorry for your loss also, and that you had to travel the same path we did.  Your description of the journey and sadness is so true...it's indescribable.  I know we will feel the loss for many years to come as well.

Sorry about Blondie.  We learn so much from dogs, they are good teachers.  I know I have kept my late dog's collar, and things
and I just will never part with them.

Hi Monkey's,

I hope this is OK to post this information.  I am following's Red's suggestion to only paste one paragraph of an article.
My neighbor and cousin have had their e-mail addresses stolen, I have bogus or phantom e-mails sent from them.
Most of you know about this and it is good to refresh our memories because good honest people are sometimes prone to be
innocent victims of scams.  I did not post this on "news of the day" because this happened last week.

Here is some basic information that can help people avoid being tricked by phishing attacks.

What is phishing?

Phishing is an attempt, usually via e-mail, to trick people into revealing sensitive information like usernames, passwords, and credit card data by pretending to be a bank or some other legitimate entity. The e-mails typically include a link to a Web site that appears to be legitimate and which prompts users to provide information. Sometimes, the phishing e-mail will include a form in an attachment to fill out. One common tactic phishers use is to pretend to be from the fraud department of a financial institution or online retailer like PayPal and ask for information to be provided to prevent identity fraud. In one case, a phishing e-mail purporting to be from a state lottery commission asked recipients for their banking information so their "winnings" could be deposited into their accounts.

Cookie,

I alway's admire you in your outfits and the fact you ask question's.  Sometimes good questions are better than good answers, keeps us thinking.  Once the Idjets have the names, so much info can be gleaned, that is if someone has their application on line -like my cousin does, she has her cell phone on her app on-line.  I think the culprits are looking for quick money and bank accounts. 

A woman on the news recieve a call on her cell phone, apparently cell phones are public information. The woman
on the news, said it came from Rikers Island (where the prison is located) she didn't have anything conclusive.  The call was looking for her bank account information. 

I am actually thinking of going back to writing in the post mail.   ::MonkeyHaHa::

Some of you may remember my Blondie, our blonde lab that I accidentally backed over last summer.  I'm thankful today that she fully recovered from that accident and that we were blessed with many more months of her sweet presence.  She started having seizures a few weeks ago and when they became frequent we had to put her on medicine to control them.  In a few days the seizures subsided but other problems became more apparent, and were getting worse.  She was suffering, struggling to breathe at times...she couldn't get up on her own anymore...and eventually became incontinent.  Although it broke our hearts to do it, we took her in and with all of her humans that loved her around her...she was put to sleep this past week.  It was one of the hardest things my DH and I have ever had to decide to do, but we couldn't bear to see her suffer any longer.  She was absolutely the sweetest girl ever, she was a mother figure to the rest of our fur babies...she loved them all unconditionally...as she did all of us. 

We are all so sad...we loved her and miss her so much; but will always be thankful to have been blessed with her in our lives.

Thank you Sis.   ::MonkeyAngel::

My oldest was in with his puppy this weekend, and we all noticed that she kept looking for Blondie...she always slept with her when she came to visit. 

They came in and he had helped us take Blondie and helped bury her here after, his puppy slept with him while they were here that time.  She had gone and laid on Blondie's pallet that was still in the living room and whined and looked so sad the evening before they left.  I guess we thought she knew then that she was gone...

He kept her in his room last night, and she whined at the door until after 2 this morning.  I'd gotten up and took her outside thinking maybe that's why she was whining...she went to all of Blondie's usual laying spots outside and sniffed around and then came back to the door.  She just didn't want to go to sleep without her. 

We all still miss her so...   :cry:

CBB, I just love my new avi.  It is so colorful and I love each color you put there.  I always love having my angel with me and right now she is looking over my shoulder.  Sometimes I need her there, sometimes next to me, and sometimes to guide me.  You always seem to know.  I always feel like you have gotten to know my spirit and each avi is different and reflects where I am at the time and gives me great cheer.  As we get older, people forget that we have needs too, we are not just Mom, Sister, Daughter, caretaker, etc.  I love the way you recognize the heart of people and have just the right words to say.  You are so gifted with your words, your instincts, and your art.

The gift you have given me as a friend, sister mod, and cheerleader is more than some people receive once they leave that 'nest,' yet it is when we need it so badly.  I appreciate you every day.  Thanks for the avi, I love it and it has touched my soul.  I love you, friend!

Seahorse, Lent didn't start this year until March 9th. Whatever the reason she is not posting, I hope she, and her family are all right. I miss her posts.

SuzieQ and Seahorse  Northern Rose's okay. Things are very busy at home and needed to take a break for awhile.  I am hoping along with you that she comes back and joins us again soon. She is missed very much.

Thank you Green Eyes, hope she comes back soon also.

CBB, I just love my new avi.  It is so colorful and I love each color you put there.  I always love having my angel with me and right now she is looking over my shoulder.  Sometimes I need her there, sometimes next to me, and sometimes to guide me.  You always seem to know.  I always feel like you have gotten to know my spirit and each avi is different and reflects where I am at the time and gives me great cheer.  As we get older, people forget that we have needs too, we are not just Mom, Sister, Daughter, caretaker, etc.  I love the way you recognize the heart of people and have just the right words to say.  You are so gifted with your words, your instincts, and your art.

The gift you have given me as a friend, sister mod, and cheerleader is more than some people receive once they leave that 'nest,' yet it is when we need it so badly.  I appreciate you every day.  Thanks for the avi, I love it and it has touched my soul.  I love you, friend!

 ::MonkeyKiss:: ::MonkeyKiss::  ::MonkeyKiss::



So true...   ::MonkeyHeart::

It is a very beautiful avi...I'd been admiring the colors and sweetness; it's just perfect!   ::MonkeyAngel::

I am ok, lucky !
My niece recommended I start using my "old people's"
cane again. Geez I hate physical signs of maturity !

I fractured a bone on the left side of my nose. Using "Veramyst" fro Dr. so I can breathe, as
it is SO swollen inside.

ALL I did was walk out of a restaurant with husband and G'daughter, &
my knee totally gave out without notice !
I fell full force forward, hitting my face, and left side, primarily.
U should c my knee, and.....I just had surgery on it in 8/2010.
I previously had a tennis ball size, Baker cyst on the back of my knee,
and now it has company as my knee cap is huge with bruising and fluid.
Our ins. does NOT cover ER care, unless it is life or death, so I saw the Dr.
1st thing Mon. am, and will c the orthopedic surgeon in the am.
The primary care Dr. said that the TIBIA appears to be out of place, or fractured.

Than God I have a high tolerance for pain, because Alleve is all I will do.

Vicodan, oxycodons, etc., amaze me when peple take them just because.
I cannot fathom voluntarily making myself feel like a "wet noodle." What a total waste of life !
This is my  fur "nurse." He is very perceptive & will not leave my side when I am injured or ill.


I have a great husband who helps with the house, and so I rest.
I sit in front of my pc, and read here, there and everywhere.

I am grateful that my children are all grown and gone, because I only need to look after ME !
I will know in the am if I need surgery, rest, or shot for dog food, like they do OLD horses ! LOL

Thank u all for your concern, and prayers. I absolutely love this forum. Klaas is a great mod, and
there are so many caring and loving people here !xoxo

GOOD FRIDAY

The Ultimate Sacrific

The Old Testament

Isaiah 53 - Prophecy

The New Testament
Luke 23: Prophecy Fulfilled

+++++++++

IT IS FINISHED

There's a line that is drawn through the ages
On that line stands an old rugged cross
On that cross, a battle is raging
To gain a man's soul or it's loss
On one side, march the forces of evil
All the demons, all the devils of hell
On the other, the angels of glory
And they meet on Golgotha's hill
The earth shakes with the force of the conflict
And the sun refuses to shine
For there hangs God's Son, in the balance
And then through the darkness He cries

It is finished, the battle is over
It is finished, there'll be no more war
It is finished, the end of the conflict
It is finished and Jesus is Lord

Yet in my heart, the battle was still raging
Not all prisoners of war had come home
These were battlefields of my own making
I didn't know that the war had been won
Oh, but then I heard the King of the ages
Had fought all the battles for me
And that victory was mine for the claiming
And now praise His name, I am free.

THE GRAVE COULD NOT HOLD HIM - HE IS RISEN, HE IS RISEN INDEED!!

The Easter Miracle

Luke 24: 1-8


At the crack of dawn on Sunday, the women came to the tomb carrying the burial spices they had prepared. They found the entrance stone rolled back from the tomb, so they walked in. But once inside, they couldn't find the body of the Master Jesus.  They were puzzled, wondering what to make of this. Then, out of nowhere it seemed, two men, light cascading over them, stood there. The women were awestruck and bowed down in worship. The men said, "Why are you looking for the Living One in a cemetery? He is not here, but raised up. Remember how he told you when you were still back in Galilee that he had to be handed over to sinners, be killed on a cross, and in three days rise up?" Then they remembered Jesus' words.

+++++++++


Then Came the Morning

They all walked away, with nothing to say,
They'd just lost their dearest friend.
All that He said, now He was dead,
So this was the way it would end.
The dreams they had dreamed were not what they'd seemed,
Now that He was dead and gone.
The garden, the jail, the hammer, the nail,
How could a night be so long.

Then came the morning, night turned into day;
The stone was rolled away, hope rose with the dawn.
Then came the morning, shadows vanished before the sun,
Death had lost and life had won, for morning had come
.

The angel, the star, the kings from afar,
The wedding, the water, the wine.
Now it was done, they'd taken her son,
Wasted before his time.
She knew it was true, she'd watched him die too,
She'd heard them call Him just a man,
But deep in her heart, she knew from the start,
Somehow her Son would live again.

Then came the morning, night turned into day;
The stone was rolled away, hope rose with the dawn.
Then came the morning, shadows vanished before the sun,
Death had lost and life had won, for morning had come
.

Then came the morning, shadows vanished before the sun,
Death had lost and life had won, for morning had come.

Morning had come.

LEP  Just checking to see how you are doing. ::HelloKitty::
Thank u for asking ~ !
I am getting there slowly but surely !
I have rested and iced my bod so much
that I am probably getting bed sores. LL

I am not one to sit unless I am on the pc,
and that never lasts too long.

My face is getting better with the bruising.

I will be 59 in June of this year.
I never realized what a trauma it is to one's body when
they fall hard. I have been driving since I was 16, and never
have been in an auto accident. Some have told me that you
hurt like this if u r in an accident. Thank God 4 small favors !

Holy week is approaching quickly, & being a practicing Catholic,
there r many services to attend this week. I hope I am recovered enough !
I take my G'daughter to help her choose the perfect dress 4 Easter,
and today I told her maybe we would attempt it on Thurs.
At 14 u have to look your best u know. I am blessed with her companship.
Usually during the teen years it is no longer kewl to hang with your G'ma.,
but SHE EVEN introduces me to her friends, & runs, while calling my name
whenever she happens to be where I am in public.

I think having her in my life is why the case with Hailey Dunn
has hit me so hard. They r close in age, and I cannot even imagine
ANY perp ever hurting my "baby." Sad how the difference in morals and
values has caused harm to Hailey which will never be reversed in this life.

GreenEyes,

What I did in the past was seach the city directories http://www.evendon.net/PGHLookups/DirM.htm
and then I narrowed now what school a relative attended.

I also used Google Archivies Newspaper search: http://news.google.com/archivesearch/advanced_search

I keyed in

Exact phase:  Monkey High School (example)

Language: English

Place:  I typed the city, etc.

I click "No Price"

I found an aunt who guaduated in 1932 and could not find her in the yearbook, I am stumped.  ::MonkeyEek::

You are so funny, white lipstick.

seahorse that is cool I will have to give it a try for some of the family. As for your Aunt maybe see didn't get a picture taken to put in the yearbook. I know some of the kids in mine didn't have pictures for what ever reason but they had a list at the end of each class.  Or maybe a misspelling of the name or under someone else's name.
