Must we Endure???

OK, please raise you hand if you are as tired as I am when hearing about the present Bush Administration what they knew and when they knew it. These people are crazy!!
Someone drank the kool aid and passed the pitcher to the rest of the dopes. I think I know who it was, but gads!

Let me say this === George Tenet WE ALREADY KNEW what you have written about in your tell all book. You, my sleazy dope, are just gonna make money on that book Why don't you be a big person and donate that money you will make to all the children of service men and women who died in the horrific war. The money could be used
for school scholarships.

Theses people are
DOPE = a stupid or unresponsive person

My funny Buddy..........

So here's our crazy whacked out cat, Buddy attending to his favorite pastime, he is drinking out of the faucet in the tub....I know don't ask... the cat loves water and loves to play in water. You turn the water on, he jumps in the tub splashes in the water a bit then tries to catch the last drips outta the faucet. I have no idea what we are going to do in the RV cause there is only a shower. And we haven't told Buddy yet, so there could be a revolt on the part of the cat...stay tuna'd!

ps...thanks seester moon for publishing the youtube!

Earth Day

I really should have posted this yesterday however due to an invasion of sinus pain and such I could barely see, let alone use the computer.

Do yourself a favor and sign up for this service......GREEN DIMES it is NOT costly at all. And so very worthwhile. And you would be doing the future generations of this world a big, big favor.

Moon and lil bird don't sign up cause you already have!

While searching for fabric softener that was fragrance free I came upon this site that you might find useful.......a green guide

I interupt your regular viewing...

to bring you this message.

Steve Capus
is an ignorant fool and inspite of how much I like Brian Williams, he is in the same sinking boat with Capus.

Good God gentlem what were you thinking didn't you think for just one second, one second that it was WRONG to give this person a stage? Didn't you think to consult, for one minute, with Tom Brokaw!

Now I will say that I wasn't real happy bout your greedy, yes greedy decision to fire Don Imus. You caved to the advertisers in a big way. Mr Capus what are you going to tell the advertisers now? I am angry and won't be watching a lot of NBC news because of your errors. Splain that to the big boys Steve.

Oh and I would hope you would publicly apologize to the community of VTU.

A friend recently posted in her blog, a link that I would like to share - read this

Mr Capus, Mr Williams see ya at the races..................stay tuna'd!

Cutbacks ... Ouch!

Due to recent cutbacks at the Sarasota Herald Tribune, David Grimes, a columnist for the paper had this column in todays edition. But after reading the very funnypiece I thought of a few things.

1. I used to work for a newspaper and I'm sure they too are going thru some difficulties....must get in touch with my favorite editor.

2. Reading a column without vowels would be good exercise for the brain I think, refer back to my blog on Spa's for the Brain

3. And last but certainly not least David Grimes is a funny guy and quite persuasive to get this by his editors....way to go! Thanks for the laugh Mr. Grimes.

I now know that while we are traveling I will be sure to check in with Mr Grimes and see if he was able to add any vowels..........stay tuna'd

I love reading proverbs and their meanings.........I came across this African Proverb the other day and thought to fitting for the recent tragedy. Not all proverbs are serious some African Proverbs are quite funny and literal.

But this is up there with being an all time favorite ...

Say it isn't so PLEASE

I don't know about your area or even your Country, BUT, this Country survives on volunteers and their many, many efforts.

When I read that volunteerism is dwindling I was very sad. But after reading this article I realized that it isn't quite as bad as the headline states, which is usually the case. Headlines are created by adventerous, aggravating editors, but if it leads us to the story the Editor accomplished what he set out to do.

We come from a long line of volunteers. I honestly cannot remember when I didn't volunteer to do something or belong to a non profit group. My Uncle in Indiana, before he passed, he was a volunteer Grandpa, how cool is that. My Aunt is a literacy volunteer, my sweet sister just received her five year pin being a docent at the gorgeous Getty Center in Los Angeles. I know my talented and beautiful niece volunteers a lot, how she has the time given her busy schedule, but she does.

If you have never volunteered and have the time to do so, please think about doing something ::: I am telling you it is a very fulfilling thing to do. Gads I'm beginning to sound like Oprah, not meant to.

A couple of ideas.........if there a Habitat office in your area. They need volunteers of all sorts from swinging a hammer to being a cashier. I did a recent fun thing, I read to a group of kindergarten children at the Library. That was fun reading a short story to a bunch of wiggle worms.

So think about your time, could you manage it better? This is not to say neglect others around you or yourself. But I guaran...damn...tee you you will truly get something from your time.

A christening of sorts

Well outta no where, a name has come to me for the new truck.......Louie, short for Louisville where he was born. Ford has a truck assembly plant there and it is on Fern Valley Road. Didn't think Fern was a good name for a truck.

He will be an Aries and the RV will be a Pisces must go see if that is a good match. Yep the RV will definitely be called Grace. And not for the reasons that those of you who know me think! The RV is manufactured by Monaco, and I think of Princess Grace whenever I hear the name Monaco.

So there ya go....seriously, anything that is couple together for an eternity must be named, and I know y'all think I'm nuts but it's just my grand entrance to feebledom.

Get the walkers ready lil bird.........stay tuna'd........ah yes for the coming adventures of Grace, Louie, Buddy the cat and Doodles and Mr Doodles.

Oh wow look what I found..........

Aries & Pisces

When Aries and Pisces come together in a love match, they can be very good for one another. Aries is a strong Sign; they are almost completely prey to their impulses, which they follow without a second thought to the outcome or possible consequences. Dreamy Pisces is much quieter and more internally-focused; they're the Poets of the Zodiac. On the surface an Aries and a Pisces may seem an unlikely pair, but when there's love involved, they can truly fulfill one another's needs. Pisces is very intuitive, both as a person and as a lover; Aries must take care to return this favor so Pisces won't begin to see their Aries partner as stingy and selfish.

What's the best aspect of the Aries-Pisces relationship? They really have a lot to learn from each other. Pisces shows Aries how to empathize and care; Aries teaches Pisces how to make dreams happen rather than just thinking about it! Theirs is a truly reciprocal relationship.

I must voice my opinion...

In recent days there has been a lot on the internet as well as on the national news, even NPR, about Don Imus and his inappropriate comments regarding the Rutgers ladies basketball team.
Yes I whole heartedly agree it was uncalled for, rude, horribly degrading. I'm ashamed that anyone would say anything like that. It is one of the reasons I don't watch anything on BET TV or listen to RAP music. The lyrics are horribly degrading.
So back to Don Imus, I can honestly tell you in my heart the man is not a racist, he's an insensitive jerk, but I don't think he's a racists.
I think MSNBC and CBS has missed an opportunity to educate instead of denegrate. They shouldn't have fired Imus, he could educate. We all know that his firing has been brought down to toal greed. MSNBC would lose advertisers, now get this, many of the very same advertisers that sponsors the IMUS cattle Ranch for Kids with Cancer. Would you please explain the reasoning behind this. I must be really dense here folks.
Every year Imus has a two day radiothon that MSNBC did cover. The event was to raise money as they do every year for Radiothon to benefit the Tomorrows Children’s Fund, the CJ Foundation for SIDS and the Imus Ranch for Kids with Cancer. I hope this does not injure the ability to garner much needed $$$.
I will donate by going to the radiothon website.

For some of you that may not know about this or care to read about this is just one of the many articles on the internet regarding this mess.

Just ask and ye shall receive

Well hell I called Mr Ford about our truck and he said "relax babe it will be there on the 23rd of April or sooner". Needles to say being the impatient BITCH I am I chose the sooner part. We have things to do people to see along the way to the West coast and a cat to train to live in an RV. Oh this should be fun!

Speaking of cats, we must decided where to put Cousin Buddy's litter box. We think we came up with a great idea but we won't know till we can get back in the trailer and measure, you know Norm - measure six times cut once.

So here I am gathering all the info to do many change of addresses. Did you know that you must change your phone number as well because many companies relate to the phone you call in on for inquiries.

When said RV and TRUCK (the two will also be named at the ceremony) do come together it is a marriage of sorts and Doodles and Mr Doodles will celebrate that anniversary every year just like we do our anniversary.

I'll send out announcements but please NO GIFTS........stay tuna'd

I'm calling Mr Ford about our truck

I open the paper this a.m. and what do I see, above the fold, WORSENING DROUGHT HAS AREA ON EDGE, and EXPERTS SEE ACTIVE HURRICANE SEASON FOR THIS REGION.

Then below the fold is......... Pollen count hits an all time high in area........WTH!!!

Now granted hurricane season does not start till June 1st and is rarely active until August or September. And trust me we will be way long gone by then. But the pollen and the fires are just as scary, cause the pollen keeps me from doing my walking and the fires keep popping up and causing even more air pollution and danger to all in the path of losing there property.

I was in Ft Myers yesterday and saw two brush fires on the side of the freeway. One of them did errupt into something more serious enough to close the highway, after I was already past, thank you very much.

Truck is supposed to arrive on April 23rd...stay tuna'd!

Now my cats angry ~ really angry

So now we read and hear on the news that they are recalling cat treats. It was hard enough to get my cat to eat treats as a reward. Buddy as previously mentioned has always eaten dry food and in some ways I am very grateful for his finicky taste.

So now with this dog and cat food scare they have an alert out for soft treats made by Del Monte and others read here on SNOPES.

And Buddy the cat is now really pissed cause he has gotten used to his treats and we had to dispose of them. What's next ... my GOD the world is falling apart, Global Warming, now their no end to the madness.

As I type Buddy is writing a customer service letter to Del Monte, actually honey husband is helping Buddy compose said letter..........stay tuna'd

ps........if this becomes a problem and those DOPES in Washington think they might want to get on the bandwagon be afraid and start cooking for your pets.
