These amazing, modern conveniences!

Who ever looks at the end of your aluminum foil box?  What a fantastic idea. Now, if someone would just make plastic wrap that didnt stick to itself. I've been using aluminum foil for more years than I care to remember. Great stuff, but sometimes it can be a pain. You know, like when you are in the middle of doing something and you try to pull some foil out and the roll comes out of the box. Then you have to put the roll back in the box and start over. The darn roll always comes out at the wrong time.

Well, I would like to share this with you. Yesterday I went to throw out an empty Reynolds foil box and for some reason I turned it and looked at the end of the box.  And written on the end it said, Press here to lock end.  Right there on the end of the box is a tab to lock the roll in place. How long has this little locking tab been there?  I then looked at a generic brand of aluminum foil and it had one, too.  I then looked at a box of Saran wrap and it had one too!  I can't count the number of times the Saran wrap roll has jumped out when I was trying to cover something up.

I'm sharing this with my friends that did not know this.  If you all ready know this, delete this message and don't e-mail me and make me feel dumber than I already feel..  If you didn't know this, e-mail me and let me know so I won't feel so dumb.

I hope I'm not the only person that didn't know about this.


Don't bother looking on snopes.  This one is true I just looked and there were tabs on both sides of my Reynolds Wrap.  Duh!!!!

I will offer mass for the voters to do the right thing for thier country and their religious liberty. I will ask the haitian peasants also. I was very dismayed when, recently, a family member of mine said to me with great resignation that Obama will take the presidency. These words came from someone who in the past has been a great prayer warrior. 'What is happening?' was my question. Why are we Christians settling and not issuing a battle cry and falling to our knees and taking our country back? We allowed ourselves to be stripped of the right to pray at school functions and in school, we have the 10 commandments removed from government places and are told we cannot pray in school, all the while providing public prayer places for Muslims. What in the world is going on and why are we being apathetic? Why aren't we praying?

Our God is a mighty God who is waiting patiently for us to raise our voices to heaven to stop the tide of the anti-Christ actions in our world today. Now we find we have a charismatic candidate for president who does not respect our flag and refuses to wear one on his lapel except when it becomes politically expedient and whose own wife and pastor that he loves profess to have strong anti-white feelings, and we sit back and say 'it is a given, we can do nothing.' There has never been a time in 2000 years that we can do nothing, never a time that we must sit back and allow the evil in men's and women's hearts to take over our world. We should be very afraid because our apathy is leading us to perdition.

It is time for all Christian Americans to raise the battle cry and take our nation back. Maybe McCain on his own cannot defeat Obama, but our God can and He will if we take to our knees in prayer and raise a mighty cry to the heavens to 'Save us O Lord.' We have the power to change the course of this election and to keep a man as suspect as Barak Obama from leading our country to who knows where with his message of 'change' - a change which I fear will be away from our Christian ideals and away from Christ and further away from one nation under God to one nation under Allah.

We are great at passing stories and pictures around the Internet, but where are our prayers and prayer warriors praying to stop this tide of Obama? God parted the red sea, Jesus rose from the dead, and we can bring our country back to its Christian roots and stop the move to the rise of Muslims in our country. We can stop our country from being 'under Allah,' but we must begin to pray, to pray as if our country and our lives depended on it, because they do. We can stop all these atrocities against God's commands that have taken root in our country through something as simple as sincere prayer, a call to God to deliver us, to forgive us our sins of apathy, and to protect us from the evil that is upon us.

Okay prayer warriors, here is your challenge - start those prayer chains. Get the spiritual power working on our behalf and stop Obama the proper way, by calling on our God to save us from the deception that charismatic preaching is using to lead us on the wrong path. Stop those who would take God out of our country and our government. Rise up good men to lead us and protect us. George Bush is being buffeted because he has fought a holy war against the evils that attack us and we should not be surprised because a prophet is not honored in his own country. But we should not rest on our laurels and allow ourselves to be taken further off the path of Christianity and to have God removed from our presence in our schools, courts, government, and businesses. Invite God into the fray. Ask that His power rest upon us and give us the victory. Ask him to rise up a might army to defend us and to protect our country as he did in days of old.  ; Let us be victorious beginning NOW. The battle is His but we must call on Him without ceasing and unite our voices and hearts in prayer.

Please pass this around to all people of prayer that you know and maybe, just maybe, a more eloquent person of prayer will write something better and more inspiring and even the rocks will shout that Jesus is Lord and our Mighty God is with us, bringing the victory for us and ultimately for Him.

'Be joyful always, pray continually, and give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.' I Thes. 5:16-18

Hi Catherine,
I'm a post-bac at MICA with your husband with Philip. I was considering doing a project with feathers and Philip mentioned you've done a lot with feathers. I was wondering if you might share some photos of what you've done, if you have some and share your experience. How far the feathers stretched for you and so on. I would so, so appreciate it.

Subject: FW: Yellow Shirt (don't delete)

The yellow shirt  had long sleeves, four extra-large pockets trimmed in black thread
and snaps up the front.  It was faded from years of wear, but still in decent shape.  I found it in 1963 when I was home from college on Christmas break, rummaging through bags of clothes Mom intended to give away.  'You're not taking that old thing, are you?' Mom said when she saw me packing the yellow shirt.  'I wore that when I was pregnant with your brother in 1954!'

 'It's just the thing to wear over my clothes during art class, Mom.  Thanks!'  I slipped it into my suitcase before she could object. The yellow shirt be came a part of my college wardrobe.  I loved it. After graduation, I wore the shirt the day I moved into my new apartment and on Saturday mornings when I cleaned.

The next year, I married.  When I became pregnant, I wore the yellow shirt during big-belly days.  I missed Mom and the rest of my family, since we were in Colorado and they were in Illinois   But that shirt helped.  I smiled, remembering that Mother had worn it when she was pregnant, 15 years earlier.

That Christmas, mindful of the warm feelings the shirt had given me, I patched one elbow, wrapped it in holiday paper and sent it to Mom.  When Mom wrote to thank me for her 'real' gifts, she said the yellow shirt was lovely.  She never mentioned it again.

The next year, my husband, daughter and I stopped at Mom and Dad's to pick up some furniture.  Days later, when we uncrated the kitchen table, I noticed something yellow taped to its bottom.  The shirt!

And so the pattern was set.

On our next visit home, I secretly placed the shirt under Mom and Dad's mattress.  I don't know how long it took for her to find it, but almost two years passed before I discovered it under the base of our living-room floor lamp.  The yellow shirt was just what I needed now while refinishing furniture.  The walnut stains added character.

In 1975 my husband and I divorced.  With my three children, I prepared to move back to Illinois .  As I packed, a deep depression overtook me. I wondered if I could make it on my own.   I wondered if I would find a job.  I paged through the Bible, looking for comfort.  In Ephesians, I read, 'So use every piece of God's armor to resist the enemy whenever he attacks, and when it is all over, you will be standing up.'

I tried to picture myself wearing God's armor, but all I saw was the stained yellow shirt.  Slowly, it dawned on me.  Wasn't my mother's love a piece of God's armor?  My courage was renewed.

Unpacking in our new home, I knew I had to get the shirt back to Mother.  The next time I visited her, I tucked it in her bottom dresser drawer.

Meanwhile, I found a good job at a radio station.  A year later I discovered the yellow shirt hidden in a rag bag in my cleaning closet.

Something new had been added.  Embroidered in bright green across the breast pocket were the words 'I BELONG TO PAT.'

Not to be outdone, I got out my own embroidery materials and added an apostrophe and seven more letters.  Now the shirt proudly proclaimed, 'I BELONG TO PAT'S MOTHER.'  But I didn't stop there.  I zig-zagged all the frayed seams, then had a friend mail the shirt in a fancy box to Mom from Arlington , VA.   We enclosed an official looking letter from 'The Institute for the Destitute,' announcing that she was the recipient of an award for good deeds.  I would have given anything to see Mom's face when she opened the box.  But, of course, she never mentioned it.

Two years later, in 1978, I remarried.  The day of our wedding, Harold and I put our car in a friend's garage to avoid practical jokers. After the wedding, while my husband drove us to our honeymoon suite, I reached for a pillow in the car to rest my head.  It felt lumpy.  I unzipped the case and found, wrapped in wedding paper, the yellow shirt.  Inside a pocket was a note:  'Read John 14:27-29.  I love you both, Mother.'

That night I paged through the Bible in a hotel room and found the verses:  'I am leaving you with a gift: peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give isn't fragile like the peace the world gives.  So don't be troubled or afraid.  Remember what I told you: I am going away, but I will come back to you again.  If you really love me, you will be very happy for me, for now I can go to the Father, who is greater than I am. I have told you these things before they happen so that when they do, you will believe in me.'

The shirt was Mother's final gift.  She had known for three months that she had terminal Lou Gehrig's disease.  Mother died the following year at age 57.

I was tempted to send the yellow shirt with her to her grave.  But I'm glad I didn't, because it is a vivid reminder of the love-filled game she and I played for 16 years.  Besides, my older daughter is in college now, majoring in art.  And every art student needs a baggy yellow shirt with big pockets.

2. You think other people who complain about the heat in their states are sissies.

3. Newspapers make the best table cloths when setting the table for a crawfish boil.

4. Your idea of a traffic jam is ten cars waiting to pass a tractor or a sugar cane truck on the highway.

5. You've had to switch from 'heat' to 'A/C' all on the same day.

6. You know that the true value of a parking space is not determined by the distance to the door, but by the availability of shade.

7. Stores don't have bags, they have sacks.

8. You've seen people e wear bib overalls or LSU shirts at funerals.

9. You think everyone from a bigger city has an accent.

10. You measure distance in minutes, not miles.

11. Little Smokies and anything on a Ritz cracker are something you serve only on special occasions.

12. You go to the lake because you think it is kind of like going to the ocean.

13. You listen to the weather forecast before picking out an outfit to wear each day.

14. You know cow pies are not made of beef.

15. People you know have used an LSU or Saint's football schedule to plan their wedding date.

19. Your 'place at the lake' has wheels under it or 8 foot pilings.

20. A Mercedes Benz isn't a status symbol. A Chevy or Ford Extended Bed Crew Cab is.

Ooh, yeah...gotta watch out for the burglar rapist. He's the worst.

Subject: FW: GREAT IDEAS!!!!
Date: Wed, 1 Oct 2008 17:43:05 -0500

I think this very good advice---worth passing along.


Tell your spouse, your children, your neighbors, your parents, your Dr., the check-out girl at the market, everyone you run across.

Put your car keys beside your bed at night. If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, just press the panic button for your car. The alarm will be set off, and the horn will continue to sound until either you turn it off or the car battery dies.

This tip came from a neighborhood watch coordinator Next time you come home for the night and you start to put your keys away, think of this:

It's a security alarm system that you probably already have and requires no installation. Test it. It will go off from most everywhere inside your house and will keep honking until your battery runs down or until you reset it with the button on the key fob chain. It works if you park in your driveway or garage If your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break in your house, odds are the burglar rapist won't stick around... after a few seconds all the neighbors will be looking out their windows to see who is out there and sure enough the criminal won't want that. And remember to carry your keys while walking to your car in a parking lot. The alarm can work the same way there .... This is something that should really be shared with everyone. Maybe it could save a life or a sexual abuse crime.

P.S. I am send ing this to everyone I know because I think it is fantastic. Would also be useful for any emergency, such as a heart attack, where you can't reach a phone. My Mom has suggested to my Dad that he carry his car keys with him in case he falls outside and she doesn't hear him. He can activate the car alarm and then she'll know there's a problem.

Confused, elderly, ethnic people say the darnedest things!

Thursday, September 25, 2008

I can't believe you live there, either!

Oh, wedding shower. Damn.

Lesbian slumber party or wedding shower?

So what's this all about, then?

In the past, when I relied solely on my custom domain and @yahoo addresses for email, I rarely received messages intended for others. Yes, the spam always found its way into my inbox. But honest-to-goodness emails from real humans intended to go to someone else? Rare.

But once I set up my @gmail account, using my first initial and my (apparently semi-common) last name, the crap started flowing. I now get messages for Cindy, or Candy, or Chuck. Whatever.

It wouldn't be a big deal and I wouldn't be posting it if much of this junk didn't routinely come from a handful of people that I have attempted to contact. My emails explaining that I am not, in fact, their relative but instead some guy they do not know seem to fall on deaf, or perhaps slightly mentally challenged, ears.

Also, these emails are so consistent in their ridiculousness. Forwarded stories that were debunked by years ago, or lame updates of old jokes with the latest liberal political figures as the punchline, or religion-for-retards folksy bullshit. No one ever mistakenly sends me top secret plans or photos of scantily-clad attractive people. Nope. Just kittens and bible verses.

Instead of just deleting them, I'm going to start posting these emails on this blog. I make no guarantees that they'll be interesting or funny. I do promise that, when taken as a whole, they will help remind you that we as Americans are surrounded by some truly unintelligent people.

HI Mitch…thought you would appreciate this too.

Subject: Memorials 
 I found this interesting enough to pass 
 along, please read. 
 This should make it 'around' until 
 everyone wakes up! 
 Today I went to visit the new World War II Memorial in Washington, DC I got an unexpected history les son Because I'm a baby boomer, I was one of the youngest in the crowd. Most were the age of my parents, Veterans of 'the greatest war,' with their families. It was a beautiful day, and people were smiling and happy to be there. Hundreds of us milled around the memorial, reading the inspiring words of Eisenhower and Truman that are engraved there. 

 On the Pacific side of the memorial, a group of us gathered to read the words President Roosevelt used to announce the attack on Pearl Harbor: 
 Yesterday, December 7, 1941-- a date which will live in infamy--the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked. 

 One elderly woman read the words aloud: 
 'With confidence in our armed forces, with the abounding determination of our people, we will gain the inevitable triumph.' 
 But as she read, she was suddenly turned angry. 'Wait a minute,' she said, 'they left out the end of the quote.. They left out the most important part. Roosevelt ended the message with 'so help us God.' 
 Her husband said , 'You are probably right. We're not supposed to say things like that now.' 
  'I know I'm right,' she insisted. 'I remember the speech.' The two looked d ismayed, shook their heads sadly and walked away 
 Listening to their conversation, I thought to myself, Well, it has been over 50 years she's probably forgotten.' 
 But she had not forgotten. She was right. 
 I went home and pulled out the book my book club is reading --- 'Flags of Our Fathers' by James Bradley. It's all about the battle at Iwo Jima.  I haven't gotten too far in the book. It's tough to read because it's a graphic description of the WWII battles in the Pacific. 

 But right there it was on page 58. Roosevelt's speech to the nation ends in 'so help us God.' 
 The people who edited out that part of the speech when they engraved it on the memorial could have fooled me. I was born after the war! But they couldn't fool the people who were there. Roosevelt's words are engraved on their hearts 
 Send this around to your friends People nee d to kno w before everyone forgets. 
 People today are trying to change the history of America by leaving God out of it, but the truth is, God has been a part of this nation, sinc e the beginning. He still wants to be...and He always will be! 
 If you agree, pass this on. If not, 'May God Bless YOU!' 
 'Wake up AMERICA, It's Time we take our Country Back'

Hah, yer fat.


Obama! He's so DUMB!
