Good Morning King George! It was nice to see you here at the wee hours of the morning when I got up at 5 a.m. I would have thought you would have been serving up a big party until 3:00 a.m., or maybe you did and stayed up for a while. Hope you had a nice New Years' Eve and made lots a $!

Ha... I went to bed early, didn't do diddly, but could hear the fireworks off in the distance all night; guess these woods people from miles around didn't have anything to do either but blow off illegal firecrackers. Duh... Big whoopie. I'd rather be sleeping!

They'll keep this up for the next two days & nights now, like they think it's gonna make some difference in their lives. Yeah, right. The only difference it will make is in their pocketbook cause these illegal fireworks are very expensive, which they can't afford any more than they can afford their beer. County cops look the other way and I ignore it all.

Happy New Year KG, Vic, Sami, Curious, Ponderings, Zazz, Karma, JRW, Topaz, MonCheri, and TO ALL!

Happy New Year, Anne, KG, Vic, Karma, Ponerings, Topaz, JRW, Zazz, Curious, MonCheri & ALL!

I hope you all had a nice evening even if it was just relaxing. We just had a nice night at home to Anne. We played games, watched a movie & had a nice seafood dinner. I heard fireworks too, but I gotta tell you we like them. They're legal here now, but when they weren't my husband did go to Ohio every 4th of July.....heehee I hope this New Year brings you good health, Anne.

I wish ALL of US a Terrific "2014."

I've been so busy with the boys. We've been on a Leggo marathon. I'm about to go blind from looking at those tiny Leggo pieces.LOL

Happy New Year to all of you! Fireworks have always been legal here - but for some reason, we didn't hear any this year in our neighborhood, and everything was very quiet. Now, July 4th is a different story! LOL! Years ago, hubby and I decided not to ever go out to celebrate again on New Years.. The last time we did, we went out to eat with another married couple and I was seven months pregnant with our first. Going back home, our friend who was driving, was able to miss (narrowly) a car coming towards us who had crossed over the center line. This was in Pittsburgh and it was on a steep, hilly road. The driver was obviously drunk - so, we just don't venture out anymore.

I think the cops are good to patrol New Year's Eve much more than they used to; I have heard that now, it is probably the safest night to be out of the whole year, but we still have decided not to chance it.

Thank you Sami, I wish your hubby good health this next year too, and good health for all of us. Glad you all had a nice New Years Eve.

Ah, so your hubby snuck into Ohio for the 4th of July fireworks. Great for him; In Cincinnati they have a beautiful controlled fireworks display every 4th of July, October Fest and New Years Eve down on the waterfront. They may have even more of them now that the new casino has opened up close to downtown near the Trailways bus terminal on Gilbert Ave near Eden Park. Since I haven't been there for a long time I don't know what is going on up there, just what my friends tell me. I always loved going to Eden Park every Christmas season for their gorgeous Christmas displays, also to hear the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra rendition of Christmas Carols.

The most beautiful fireworks I've ever seen were on Christmas Eve and New Years Eve down here on the beach where the intra-coastal flows from Jupiter and beyond, through Palm Beach, Deerfield Beach, Ft. Lauderdale, Hollywood and on to Miami. The boat festival/show, each boat and yacht all lit up and decorated for Christmas begins twelve days before Christmas in Palm Beach and continuously runs for miles with more boats joining in and some dropping out, running all the way to Miami Beach, climaxing with their big event on New Years Eve. Fabulous! It was breathtaking sitting at an outdoor dinner restaurant during the holidays, having a marvelous dinner and watching the parade of boats, many playing Christmas music. Maybe you, hubby & family can make it down someday....! The boat show alone is worth the trip.

Mornin Vic! So good to see you. Honey, I know all about those (sometimes!) hateful little leggos. The worst thing about them is stepping on a piece or two in your bare feet during the middle of the night. Oh Lord, does it ever hurt! It can make you want to pitch them all in the trash, especially when it keeps happening to you and no one is listening when you tell them to keep them picked up off the floor in your bedroom, or in the hall or other places where people need a path to walk through. But they are fun and can keep the boys occupied and happy for hours at the time.

I hope that you, your grandsons, hubby and son had a wonderful Christmas Vic.(Glad to hear the DIL didn't kick up too much trouble. You said she gave the boys $20 bucks for C'mas; was that $20 bucks each or did they have ti split the $20 bks?). I would imagine you're starting to get a little frazzled around the edges by now, with all the extra cooking, and etc that you've had to do for the last couple of weeks now. I just hope you've had a lot of fun too with the joy of the holidays. Well, you take it easy hon and pace yourself. Yep. Life is grand! HAVE A BLESSED NEW YEAR!

Happy New year to you too, Ponderings. I'm with you on the possibilities of unhappy happenings on New Years Eve. It's improved by now (lets hope), as LE agencies tend to get more geared up for the drunks & brawls now than they used too. My hubby & I used to always do something special on New Years Eve until in later years of our marriage when we discovered none of our friends had any plans for New Years Day other than to lay around and watch the Rose Bowl, or what ever bowl it is; so we decided that would be the day we would have an open house party and invite everyone we owed holiday invitations or return dinner invitations too, so after that it evolved that we stayed home on New Years Eve and got our house ready for the next day. I had never had mixed parties of people together who didn't know each other or had never met before, including clients and neighbors, but it worked out beautifully!

The last time I went out for New Years Eve was several years ago when I had a dinner date with a guy down here who squirreled me out of $50 claiming he had left his ATM card at home and didn't have enough money on him, but by the end of the evening I had decided he was homo anyway, so good riddance to him and bye-bye $50.

"Every man should be born again on the first day of January. Start with a fresh page. Take up one hole more in the buckle if necessary, or let down one, according to circumstances; but on the first of January let every man gird himself once more, with his face to the front, and take no interest in the things that were and are past."

Thank you, another excellent one, Jazz! For me, maybe a little easier said than done in some situations (like possible health & financial matters), but in most, such as foolish waste-of-mind power spent disputing and bickering, which leads to confusion and strife and MORE evil works, and the loss of ones' peace; instead, relying on positive spiritual enlightenment that keeps our thoughts on things above while seeking wisdom; this actually IS possible.

I guess we each have to find our own happy medium. For myself, I try hard to keep the scripture in mind: "Take no thought of the morrow, sufficient unto the day will be the evil thereof" and many more such wise scriptures and encouraging words of wisdom, comfort and guidance in all things.

Have already read such awful things on the news this morning that did me no good to read. Guess I'd just better stop right there and turn my thoughts in a different direction to the many productive things I need to get done as soon as I can. Gods' blessings to you and to all in this New Year!

Good Morning to all those setting up there in the big deep freeze! I am SO sorry. I can't think of much more misery than being cold and can't get out because of the cold, snow and icy conditions, AND power outages including frozen faucets and downed phone lines!.

I've been through it myself and can't think of anytime I've ever been more miserable and feeling like I might freeze to death, FOR MONTHS AT THE TIME than when I went to college in Edinboro, Pa, outside of Erie and on Lake Erie. Sometimes even snow chains on tires didn't work. THEN, had many winters of extreme cold in Cincinnati too, with dark, cold and dreary days usually through March. I tell ya, I've truly experienced cabin fever where I paced the floor, concluding it is a real sickness.

For what its 'worth, it is also cold down here, nothing like you all are experiencing, still, I'm sitting here with three layers of clothing on trying to stay warm, VERY cold in here this morning.

PLEASE, I hope no one takes my posts as being preachy. They're not meant that way at all. I'm just trying to find my own way, forgiveness for my own many sins; trying to hold on to stability and peace, and like to talk about the simple ways sent to me by Jesus that work for me; hoping that something I say might be a guiding light to someone else in their time of trouble, which I know IS possible; but by no means meant to be preachy. Forgive if I am being misunderstood. xx000xx to all.

I wonder how that f'n con bunch of Cummings spent THEIR c'mas holidays over in Satsuma. I can just see 'em, all gathered around the fat cellulite whale paying token homage to her while they whip up a good cry over little Haleigh, whom they never gave a diddly-damn about before their slick Ronnie baby boy killed her, with THEIR help in dumping her, cleaning out that MH and hiding the porn,etc. evidence.

After the way stinky skank mama went out and bought a closet full of fancy new clothes that she hung in poor Haleighs' empty closet, where previously she had NONE, left the price tags on them, then after the camera show was over she took them all back?! OF course, they set up another show of pitiful "love" for sweet Haleigh, all too little, too late.

Has their conscience bothered them for one fraction of a second for blaming it all on Misty; lying to her, causing HER to lie; deceiving her into believing Ronnie loved her so dearly, was SO SORRY he ever beat her, would stand by her forever, and coercing her into playing their scape-goat game? NOT FOR ONE MINUTE do they have a tinge of guilt for destroying this young girls'(already beat-down) life. With all the schemes they pulled off and got away with???

Ain't no way they feel sorrow either for Haleigh; OR Mistys' life forever ruined. I can just see 'em gloating over how she took the fall for what THEY did; 25 yrs in the can being forced to keep her mouth shut. Ron's little piddly 15-yrs on a drug charge is only a spit in the pond for what he did and for what they ALL got away with. All but Misty.

I'd almost be willing to betcha they set up a little $ grubbing donation fiasco in Haleighs' memory, trying to scam more $ so they could buy their gas and dinners up to the pokey to visit Ronnie boy for c'mas and new years day. Ha ha.... I hope he never gets one day off for good behavior. The rest of those paying for what RON and his family did, even if they were ALL involved in the drug trade could be let off tomorrow as far as I'm concerned. NOT that they don't deserve to pay for their dope dealings, but because they were all set up anyhow and the bottom line was to aid in the cover up for Ronnie baby and his low-down guilty family who ALL belong in prison.

Well, I see on the news this morning they're all frozen in up in Putnam County. Sorry about that, they'll survive it if they own a coupla blankets and a coat or two; but the ones I'm really concerned about is all those north, north east, west and Midwest of us and the horror nightmare freeze they are suffering for days on end now, many without power, running out of food and unable to get out of their homes to find warmth or food, while it gets worse and worse!

AND an on-going dangerous flu epidemic covering many states where patients are being urgently advised NOT to go to any emergency room due to further contamination.. I am just sooo sorry for you all.

If there are any of our posters left with power and internet access, PLEASE CHECK IN. I am getting very concerned about all of you. Just say you're all okay if you are able too. xx00xx...

Hi, Anne.
We didn't get a lot of snow, but, it was REALLY cold. It's supposed to be in the 50's this weekend.

Good Morning KG! Have missed you!! I am SO relieved to hear from you; OH YEAH, I've been concerned about ALL of you! A weeks' lapse in posting is not normal for us most of the time. I was off posting once about 8 yrs ago due to the last big hurricane over in Boca Raton,(power outage for 12 days), and then an outage when I moved over here for a week prior to being able to get my phone, internet/direct tv cables connected in Dec six years ago; thank heavens it wasn't during the summer months and lost all contact with the outside world. I do admit it was peaceful and quiet around here tho. AND dark.

Shortly after that I had to shut myself off the internet for a good two weeks just to be able to get some unpacking done. Never did get it all done, now am at a crossroads trying to take care of some valuable financial info that's been procrastinated on and has become urgent. Now because of this I'm going to have to take some time off myself during the next few weeks, or longer. Will see how quickly I can move on these now urgent issues. Such is life!

Thank you for the nice words and maybe you are partly correct, but I also believe that we all add valuable input and appreciate each others diverse opinions; I know I do. I know that not everyone agrees with me on many issues and we don't all think alike, but I respect hearing the views and opinions of others; sometimes after careful consideration, it has even led to me changing my mind in certain instances where others views pointed out matters I hadn't even thought about previously.

Glad you are not snowbound and freezing to death up there!!! God bless, friend!

Hey Guys,

Well the boys got back into school yesterday. Thank goodness. Love them so but I'm glad to be home during the day. It was a long break.
Yes, we survived the cold temps. I came home Sunday night it was in the upper 50's, woke up Mon to temp -11 but thankful to have a warm home to come to. Well, maybe there won't be as many bugs this summer.LOL

Eye, how's your throat? Did you find out anything about the dilation procedure?

KG,
DId you read about the Insane Clown Posse suing the FBI? ICP's name was posted about in both Baby Lisa's case and Haley Dunn's. THeir followers are some really strange folks.JMO

Cute Vic! I like your style....! tee he he

That prayer.... Well meaning or not? Not for me to judge. I do know that Jesus told us to go into our closet and pray in secret and He would reward us openly. So he/she/they could try that, it might work; IFFF their heart is in the right place. IF it isn't, Jesus can certainly put it in a right place in a hurry if 'they' will only ask and let Him.

GIRL, I know you ARE glad those two little ones are back in school! AND boys at that! I CANNOT imagine how a mother who home schools everyday keeps from losing her ever lovin' mind. Actually, some of them do according to news accounts we read of these home schooled children being abused and some murdered as mama flips out. God help them. In many cases, it's just not healthy.

Some of these home schooling mothers don't realize that they need the break away from the kids as much if not more than the kids need to get away from HER; which so many poor little kids so desperately DO need to be in a more structured, quieter and non verbally/physically abusive environment where they are never allowed to just be themselves all because of their hateful, cursing and impatient mother. Sad.

Glad you are comfortably survivng the winter cold up there.... Believe me, well I remember those hard times.

I'm not sure if I read about the Clown Posse. Was this several weeks ago? What was it about? Lately I've been sort of involved in the little 13-yr old girl who is brain dead since Dec 12 due to her 3-phase surgery, whose parents have taken her out of the hospital who shut off her life support and had her declared dead. You know the one. SooooO GOOD TO SEE YOU VIC!! Missed ya!

You asked Vic; I'll answer. My voice was falling to a bare whisper and I was more chocked up daily & nightly since the prior visit 6 wks after the radiation ended in Oct. This last visit to the ENT surgeon 10 days ago did not go well. He looked into my throat and said that he could not do dilation, that the tumors had returned on the vocal cords and were fast growing. I'm up the creek real bad now Vic as my ship slowly sinks. But that's okay, I'm still here and all is good.

I'm trying hard to think what to do. The ENT recommended that I go back up to Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa for follow up treatment, but I think I already know what this means. Now that the tumors are fast growing and my throat is becoming further obstructed; I think I would be looking at removal of the voice box & chemo treatments, and insertion of the mechanical voice box. My God! This is NOT a happy ending nor am I considering it at the moment unless it should become an emergency situation, so I have not scheduled another visit to Moffitt just yet and may not anytime soon.

The ENT here had previously suggested that I try the CO2 Laser/Water Treatments, whatever that is; but when I went up to Moffitt that first time the Dr there said no, do the radiation first, which I did. Now the ENT here has suggested the possibility of the Laser/C02 again as a possible next step so I'm having him look into this as an alternative, doing all I can to avoid that last step. xx00xx..
