Jeff Dunham is the best. He has me crying with laughter till my sides hurt. Among my favorite puppets are Peanuts, Achmed, the dead terrorist,and Walter. I stopped smoking 9 months ago. I smoke electronic cigarettes. That helped me quit.
I'm proud of you too for putting down those cigarettes. I hope you can tell a big difference in how you feel.:)
Hmmm...I may just go rent a Jeff Dunham dvd.

I'll try to stay up. For what reason, I have no clue.
There will be no Dick Clark this year... He was a lifetime icon to me during New Years celebrations. I never missed watching him, if even for just a few minutes.
Did your all nighter for Y2K accomplish what you wanted? I sat in front of my PC monitor that night with some friends over at the house. We were counting down the seconds, drinking champagne, and almost begging it to zap out, hehe! Nothing happened, obviously....
They had a special clip on the Today show where one of the crystals in the ball had his name engraved. His wife was on the show too. I don't even like Carsen Daly. I so miss Dick Clark.

Yes, it worked perfectly but we had worked on it for most of 1999, we even began in 1997. That night was just a "cut-over" process to a newer version. The biggest problem stemmed from when older computers were limited on memory and many systems were built to drop the century and carry only the last 2 digits and it would have been a problem to differentiate between Jan 1,1900 and Jan 1, 2000.
So when calculatimg the terms of such things as long term investments, mortgages, or things like how long a life insurance policy had been in effect, the calculations would have gone negative. To subtrct say 1967 from 00, the result would have been a negative 67 instead of plus 33. I devised a plan for my company to convert those same 2 digits on all historical records from just numbers to a combination of numbers and letters, and it worked and still does today. LOL
So were YOU the reason that gall-derned thing sitting on my desk didn't go poof that night?????

That's neat.:) I have heard that if you see one hit on the road to check the pouch and their might be babies.
OH NO no no no!!!!! I did NOT just read that!!!!!!!!!
<<<Covering eyes, deleting info from memory>>>

I've never heard that before!! Now I'll be compelled to check them for babies! Lord, help me. Don't they have a breeding season or something? Please say yes. I really don't want to raise any possums and I am SUCH a stray animal magnet already..... Why the good Lord always seems to send poor strays my way is a mystery, but it's the honest truth.

What are everyone's plans for tonight? Seriously, I just realized that it's New Years Eve...
Anyone going out? Staying in? Having company over? Parties??
Do tell!!!!
Well I'm "planning" to go see my honey and if he's not still sick I'm gonna smooch him up good! LOL If he's still sick well, maybe I'll give him a peck on the BACK of his head...he better not even sniffle. lol We will rent some movies and eat too much. Or I don't know, maybe go visit some friends, who knows. But then again, plans have a way of falling through a lot of times. Hope not!

I will stay home for New Year's Eve. I was never one for partying or drinking (although I like a "fancy" frozen drink on occasion). We have our little guy to take care of, and I still don't feel comfortable leaving him with other folks, even though our neighbor friends have offered on many occasions. After evening chores are done, I will settle in with a good book to read. I may even scan Topix on occasion, to see if anybody else has such a quiet existence. How about everyone else?? I'll bet AB has got herself a date with her new Beau.
Nah, he will be out with friends and family I am not familiar with. We are quite at that Beau stage yet. Jury is still out on that one. He did offer to come by, but hey, I'm sick, I don't want to bothered with. hahaha Nice guy though. Gut tells me Mr. Right is lurking somewhere else though.

Already feeling the positive effects of quitting, and let me tell you, it's a SUCH nice feeling!! I even started sleeping better, which was a complete surprise! I'm sticking with it because these Ecigs have been even easier than taking Chantix was. And I tried Chantix twice. Those nightmares and other side effects were brutal... The Ecigs are a God send as far as I'm concerned..
I hear tell though that Uncle Sam is trying to shut them down. Saying that they are a "drug delivery" system. Two companies filed lawsuits in federal government not long ago and won, but I doubt it will be very long before they try to stop the use of Ecigs completely again.
Why would they want to stop these from being used, yet still allow tobacco products to be sold legally? Well, we all know the answer to that one already. Don't we....
Oh yeah, sounds like another government/tobacco company and PROBABLY drug company deal to me! They don't care about people. All any of them care about is the almighty dolllar! Tobacco companies want to make their money on tobacco, big drug companies make their fortures off of cancer and our dear government gets HUGE kickbacks from both of them. That so ticks me off!

No, I won't take credit for that. I (and numerous other IT people around the world) worked on large mainframe systems. Those gall-danged things on one's desks came along about 1985 and were largely used to just transmit data back and forth to larger machines. It is what the larger, older machines did with the data and that might be what kept your's from going POOF.

All joking aside, I really was secretly hoping to watch it go poof.

Not that I wanted the world's finances or anything else to be effected. But in-home PC's at that time? It wouldn't have bothered me one iota back then if it would have crashed, never to be resurrected..

Santa brought me a new 20 gauge shotgun for Christmas, among with an assortment of other 'needful' accessories to go along with it. I might make some noise of my own out there if I hear trespassers or the likes getting too close for comfort.. For not having any neighbors close by, we've had some very strange things going on around here. Odd noises and occasional gunfire off in the hills, etc.
Other than that, I'm with Lala. I've got a good book or two still left to finish, a brand new shotgun, and a new coffee pot. What more could a girl ask for, pray tell? Other than taking a hot bubble bath and putting on some new P.Jammies and warm fuzzy house slippers before midnight, that is.....

Fire 'em up Nope! lol I like to do some shooting around here pretty often to keep everybody thinking we're crazy so they will leave us alone. It seems to work! LOL

Around here the headliner for the evening news would state:
"Kentucky woman hit and killed trying to scavenge road kill for dinner. We'll have details at 11. And in other breaking news...."

Right? If you keep 'em guessing, they're going to stay a bit leery of you. People tend to be nervous of other people if they can't figure out. Specially when you don't have any type of schedule that you keep or you aren't 'predictable' as to when you might be leaving your house, etc...

Well, time to give the critters their afternoon snacks. Both inside and out. Then I might take a nice nap.

Take care everyone. I'll no doubt be back on later tonight.

Strays come my way, too. Dogs, cats, a horse that I finally got reunited with its owner 2 months later, and a pot-bellied pig, that I successfully chased to a neighbor, who gave her a home. I think that these animals have a secret, underground communication system, with messages that state,"Go there. She has food and shelter. She will get you medical care when you need it. She will let you adopt her if you wag your tail, nicker, snort, or purr. Tweet if you are a bird that has lost its parents." I call this the Lost or Abandoned Animal Conspiracy.

Did you know that corticosteroids can trigger a psychotic episode in sensitive individuals? It's called steroid psychosis. The first time I saw this was when a person who had severe pulmonary problems was given steroid injections in an attempt to save her life. She went from a perfectly normal person to a stark, raving mad lunatic. She began to physically attack medical staff, including the neurologist, who was hit over the head with her television remote device. Maybe chronic use of steroids contributed to Hitler's psych. problems.
Well being a hypochondriac in it's self is not a good thing. His fear of dentist caused a rotted out stinking mouth with painful tooth aches. He could see the rotted holes in his teeth but feared a dentist too much to go. He was one of his worst enemies in a way.

I smoked a cigarette once, back in 1966, did not see the point so did not smoke another one even my dad smoked until he was in his fifties.
