Remember YOU wanted to come here, to OUR country…

Rec’d 2009  just throwing it out there again:

Rudd angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation’s mosques. Quote:

‘IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians. ‘

‘This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom’

‘We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society . Learn the language!’

‘Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this

is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.’

‘We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us..’

‘This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, ‘THE RIGHT TO LEAVE’.’

‘If you aren’t happy here then LEAVE. We didn’t force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.’

Maybe if we circulate this amongst ourselves, WE will find the courage to start speaking and voicing the same truths.

SwagBucks….much swag, no bucks

I signed up with Swapbucks thru Listia..I really like this site, no money exchanges, you sell things and buy things with credits, you can spend money to get credits but you don’t need to.  Great place to get rid of all the stuff hiding in closets and drawers, but I digress, so supposedly I could get 94,002 credits if I signed up, I signed up and I never got my points.  Been over a month know, on top of that, I bought some books thru their site, and I was supposed to credit swagbucks towards gift cards for my purchase.

Again, no swagbucks, I sent 2 emails two weeks apart and still no response, so I would say, skip the swagbucks, because at least for me, I haven’t seen anything they have promised so far.

I would say check out listia, it be rockin’!


A voice from the back of the pew

There was a preacher whose wife was expecting a baby so he went before
the congregation and asked for a raise. After much discussion, they
passed a rule that whenever the preacher’s family expanded, so would his

After 6 children, this started to get expensive and the congregation
decided to hold another meeting to discuss the preacher’s salary. There
was much yelling and bickering about how much the clergyman’s additional
children were costing the church.

Finally, the Preacher got up and spoke to the crowd, “Children are a
gift from God,” he said. Silence fell on the congregation.

In the back pew, a little old lady stood up and in her frail voice said,
“Rain is also a gift from God, but when we get too much of it, we wear

And the congregation said, “Amen.”

Now you know…..

Q: Why are many coin banks shaped like pigs? 
> A: Long ago, dishes and cookware in Europe were made of a dense orange clay called "pygg". When people saved coins in jars made of this clay, the jars became known as "pygg banks." When an English potter misunderstood the word, he made a bank that resembled a pig. And it caught on.
> Q: Did you ever wonder why dimes, quarters and half dollars have notches, while pennies and nickels do not? 
> A: The US Mint began putting notches on the edges of coins containing gold and silver to discourage holders from shaving off small quantities of the precious metals Dimes, quarters and half dollars are notched because they used to contain silver. Pennies and nickels aren't notched because the metals they contain are not valuable enough to shave.. 
> Q: Why do men's clothes have buttons on the right while women's clothes have buttons on the left? 
> A: When buttons were invented, they were very expensive and worn primarily by the rich. Because wealthy women were dressed by maids, dressmakers put the buttons on the maid's right. Since most people are right-handed, it is easier to push buttons on the right through holes on the left. And that's where women's buttons have remained since. 
> Q: Why do X's at the end of a letter signify kisses? 
> A: In the Middle Ages, when many people were unable to read or write, documents were often signed using an X. Kissing the X represented an oath to fulfill obligations specified in the document. The X and the kiss eventually became synonymous. 
> Q: Why is shifting responsibility to someone else called "passing the buck"? 
> A: In card games, it was once customary to pass an item, called a buck, from player to player to indicate whose turn it was to deal. If a player did not wish to assume the responsibility, he would "pass the buck" to the next player. 
> Q: Why do people clink their glasses before drinking a toast? 
> A: It used to be common for someone to try to kill an enemy by offering him a poisoned drink. To prove to a guest that a drink was safe, it became customary for a guest to pour a small amount of his drink into the glass of the host. Both men would drink it simultaneously. When a guest trusted his host, he would then just touch or clink the host's glass with his own. 
> Q: Why are people in the public eye said to be "in the limelight"? 
> A: Invented in 1825, limelight was used in lighthouses and stage lighting by burning a cylinder of lime which produced a brilliant light. In the theatre, performers on stage "in the limelight" were seen by the audience to be the center of attention. 
> Q: Why do ships and aircraft in trouble use "mayday"as their call for help? 
> A: This comes from the French word m'aidez -meaning "help me" -- and is pronounced "mayday, " 
> Q: Why is someone who is feeling great "on cloud nine"? 
> A: Types of clouds are numbered according to the altitudes they attain, with nine being the highest cloud If someone is said to be on cloud nine, that person is floating well above worldly cares..
> Q: Why are zero scores in tennis called "love"? 
> A: In France , where tennis first became popular, a big, round zero on scoreboard looked like an egg and was called "l'oeuf," which is French for "egg." When tennis was introduced in the US, Americans pronounced it "love." 
> Q: In golf, where did the term "Caddie" come from? 
> A. When Mary, later Queen of Scots, went to France as a young girl (for education & survival), Louis, King of France, learned that she loved the Scot game "golf." So he had the first golf course outside of Scotland built for her enjoyment. To make sure she was properly chaperoned (and guarded) while she played, Louis hired cadets from a military school to accompany her. Mary liked this a lot and when she returned to Scotland (not a very good idea in the long run), she took the practice with her. In French, the word cadet is pronounced 'ca-day' and the Scots changed it into "caddie."

Fantasy Freaking Football …..auugghhh

yes, I have no idea what I am doing, I have a kind of idea, and I asked my son what positions there are so I could figure out what guys I needed.

I just needed to figure out how to DO the draft, now WHO to draft.  I need help figuring out how to drop and add players, not who to drop or add.  And you wonder why I am cranky when I lose…REALLY!


I did some research, kind of, on those who might be sleepers, so no DEAR, I don’t want your help, why does this make you crazy?  Know what makes me crazy, having to take someone I don’t want because you are sure I don’t know what I am doing, and then having my guy on the bench getting more points then the other guy.

So I just refigured my team, on my own, while he was at work, and we will see what happens, but since I am 0-2 I am most likely screwed anyway. %$^&*&^

I should have taken Tebow like I wanted!

Kitchen Mash – Up Thai Soup

We went out to Thai and I got the Tom Soup, without coconut milk, big mistake, while tasty it was Spicy!

So I brought the soup home, strained out all the veggies I don’t eat, put it in the pot, and added coconut milk and tomato from my garden.

While that was heating up I steamed some tofu and mushrooms.  Then I put it all together and ended up with 4 more servings!

Damn tomato worms are trying to invade me, cut off 4 fairly large ones last week, went to check and ended up pulling off 4 more small ones, where are the little F$%#’ers coming from???

The birds, spiders and lizards are falling down on their pest duties big time lately!

My blog is like my open diary, I know what I write will be seen by others, but also

I can browse back thru to see what was us in the “ole days :)

I have had a few blogsites before settling here, so I am slowly moving over posts from other sites.  It is to hard to keep track of everything otherwise :)

I have plenty of time to do this since the new puppy wakes me up early almost every AM, how can something so small be such a menance
