Pick the Next Topic

I was just wondering if maybe there is a topic or area of interest or concern that my audience would like me to address. If so, please comment below. I will start a 3 day reading plan tomorrow, and then I will try to address some of the topics you are interested in hearing more about. Thanks, and have a blessed day.

Hello. How have you been? I am well. I am content.

I don’t have time to write a lot at this moment, but I did want to check in to say hello.

Have a blessed day.

What a wake-up pain in the neck, lol

First, let me apologize for taking so long to post your trackbacks. Ya see, they were not showing up on my site, so I didn’t know they were there. I do not know what is happening with haloscan, but I seem to have temporarily fixed the problem. It seems that somehow the trackbacks were put into moderation, which I did not have as my setting. I did not know what to do, so I e-mailed them. Of course, but I have not heard back. (I haven’t exactly checked, though, so I may be incorrect on that. lol)

Anyway, since I never used the moderation, I didn’t know how to ‘okay’ the trackbacks. So I proceeded as usual. I fidgetted. I tried a little of this and a little of that, and I finally hit the correct way. If this EVER happens to you, all you have to do is:

1. Go to ‘Manage Trackbacks’.
2. If you notice there are trackbacks there that have not shown up on your trackback page, continue.
3. On the left side is the name of your post, in the middle is the trackback, these are the two I am discussing.
4. Click on YOUR post’s link.
5. This will take you to YOUR trackback page.
6. I tested it to make sure, and my trackbacks were gone.
7. I tested the same link I tested, and it reappeared. So don’t freak out if it disappears. 😉

That is our lesson for today about how to go around haloscan when the *itch doesn’t want to act right. Now I have to go so I can check my e-mail. lol. Have a great day everyone!

PS. I’ve just noticed that sometimes it shows and sometimes not. I found a way to fix that, too. Just hit ‘refresh’, and you should be good to go. If you try to leave a trackback and are still unsure whether or not I received it, please e-mail me. (It isn’t working for comments, either.)

Update: Haloscan has informed me about a ‘hard refresh’. To do this, simply use the Shift+Refresh at the same time. That’s pretty cool. I didn’t know that little trick. Thank you, Haloscan.

(Original post time is 4:12 am, but I want to move this up above the other articles. This way I can see if any trackbacks are being held back.)

These are posts I have trackbacked at Linkfest:

Blog @ MoreWhat.com: Blog @ MoreWhat.com.
A Newt One: Why we don’t post many liberal comments.
Right Truth: Suddenly the government thinks the Mexican border is a mess.
Big Dog’s Weblog: Obama Need To Go On the Offensive.

What an inspiring speech and a great communicator! Yes, I am a Conservative, but that does not mean I have to turn off my common sense because of politics. Not on this day. I happen to admire Dr. King. You must listen to Sen. Obama’s speech. Take off your political hat first, though.

Here is part of the text of his speech:

So let us say that on this day of all days, each of us carries with us the task of changing our hearts and minds. The division, the stereotypes, the scape-goating, the ease with which we blame our plight on others — all of this distracts us from the common challenges we face — war and poverty; injustice and inequality.

We can no longer afford to build ourselves up by tearing someone else down. We can no longer afford to traffic in lies or fear or hate. It is the poison that we must purge from our politics; the wall that we must tear down before the hour grows too late.

Because if Dr. King could love his jailor; if he could call on the faithful who once sat where you do to forgive those who set dogs and fire hoses upon them, then surely we can look past what divides us in our time, and bind up our wounds, and erase the empathy deficit that exists in our hearts. [The Corner, (not the NRO corner).]

You may read the entire text over there. I may not agree with everything he said and I don’t know about you, but if McCain is our nominee? I’m voting for Obama. Listen up, Republicans!

Update: Okay, let me clear this up right now why I would vote for Obama. If McCain gets the nod, we conservatives are out to pasture and the White House will be Lefter than any Democrat could ever possibly take it! Global warming? The Fairness Doctrine for the radio programs but not the TV or papers? More laws on freedom speech through campaign finance reform? You’ve got to kidding me, right?

The way Republicans performed under the Bush administration has been pathetic. If we are going to have a Democrat in the White House, it might as well be one from the DEMOCRAT party. This way, we should be able to light a fire up under those spineless Republicans…

My head hurts

I woke up late, because I went to sleep around 8 am this morning. I woke up at 2 pm. I hate politics. Hillary apparently won in new hamphshire, and mccain won with the help of independents. Okay? It’s over there. Keep on moving. Nothing here to see. My head really hurts, so I think I’m going to lay down for a while and dream about Duncan Hunter…

Wasted days and wasted nights

I have been trying to move all of my posts from 8 sites over to this one since June of this year, and here it, December 2007, and I am only on September 2004! (Start date: July 5, 2004.) Oh yes, I wake up early and go to sleep when my body gives way to the REM. I don’t really know if I can call it REM, since I may be too exhausted to dream in lala land. As it may be, I have wasted much time.

I listen to the radio to keep up with the news. When I do that, I sometimes read and reread because it is getting too hard to listen and read at the same time. I must be getting old! That is when I determine to play a game while they are talking and reading during the commercials.

Then I look up at the clock and declare, “Holy crap! It’s after 9pm and I haven’t written a thing!” Well, in order to keep my promise to myself about writing at least once a day (not including comments), here is my verbage. LOL. Now I really must get back to work…have a nice evening. 😉

    Saturday night loneliness

    Many people will be with their families and/or friends this Saturday night, and that is good. But what about those who are so far away they cannot make it home? What about those who are answering the call of our country?

    I pray, LORD, You will Comfort them, be with them, protect them, Love them, guard them from all evil and harm, and I pray they know You and have accepted You into their hearts as their LORD and Saviour. Share with them Your Peace that this world does not understand. Let us not be so brazen as to not remember them. Help us, LORD, to keep them in our hearts and prayers as well as their families.

    For every empty chair at the table this year of one of our own patriots, no matter the cause, please fill this hole in each tiny face and heart. By patriot I mean someone from our coalition of the willing. Not from al qaida. May they all burn in hell. Please. In Jesus Christ’s name I pray. Amen.

    No matter how much we enjoy giving and receiving gifts, eating large, and spending time with our loved ones; there would be NO reason for the government to completely shut down, for the mail to be overloaded, for that special glow in our hearts if Jesus had not been born into this world to sacrifice Himself so that we may be saved. Just think about that this Christmas Day, because, for most of us, it is not our birthday! 😉

    There is nothing I can think of that is more delightful than that of a newborn child. Don’t forget to take the time to smell the roses, notice the homeless and hungry, praise your brother/sister when they do something well, etc.

    I realize that not everyone is a Christian. So what and why are celebrating? Could it be the peace and goodwill toward men that is filling the air? That’s okay. I much prefer it myself. You don’t need a reason to celebrate, just don’t try to take away mine and we’ll get along divinely. Otherwise, we are going to bump heads.

    If my writing about my beliefs bothers you, tough. May I suggest you start your own blog? Families have members with which not everyone agrees all the time about everything. I have no expectation of my readers! It is called FREEDOM. Just be delightful about it and see if your life isn’t improved…

    This is an open trackback Thursday. That means that if you would like to share some of your writings, you may do so here. It does not have to do anything with the topic above. Just remember to include my article in your blog. (You can just add my name with a link back to this article.) If you would like to join the Linkfest Haven, please click on the blue badge (or whatever those are thingys are called) and follow the directions provided. Also, no porn. Have a great day everyone!

    PLEASE CLICK ON TRACKBACK. I am having difficulty with Haloscan, so I will need to wait until they fix their problem before I can complete my task of moving the posts from there to here. I thank you for your patience. 😉

    Did I happen to mention my computer crashed today? It was really weird. Too bad we don’t make computers in America anymore. If we did, I might look around…Anyway, I think I found a way to work this. Let us see, eh? 😉

    Wednesday’s Open Trackback

    Howdy. Things appear to move along swimmingly. I am already up to September 2004. I have a question, though. Should I carry over the number of hits from these other sites since I will be using only this site from now on? I have left instructions as to where to find the post, should anyone look for a particular post. I hate going to a post that is no longer there. I think that’s how the spammers find us!

    Have a wonderful Open Trackback Wednesday. I am enjoying Linkfest, and it is my hope you would join so I can read your great articles. However if you do not wish to join, you may trackback here as well. It is just a recommendation. Please follow the rules of respect, though. No porn, and treat others with a differing opinion with respect. That does not mean you can’t debate an issue. It does mean to remember that it is the issue you are debating, not the person. God bless each one of us. 😉

    Good News Open Trackback Tuesday

    When I first started taking on the large task of moving 8 blogs into 1, it was quite an overwhelming thought. I had all of my blogs moved from Blogger over to WordPress, because they can import them into one site. They are numbered in the order they were imported. I didn’t realize it was going to be necessary to remember the order I imported them, but it is. That is, if you want to assign credit to the original post and where it came from. Oh well.

    As I stated Monday, I had only completed 2 transfers the first day. Would you like to know why? Because I went through 7000+ posts by pressing ‘previous posts’ over and over and over again until I reached the beginning. YIKES!

    Well, yesterday I found that all I need to do is pick out the month, leave everything else at ‘all’ or ‘any’ and press ‘filter.’ I did not know what filter meant, but it was worth the risk. Quick study, eh? lol. So now it is quicker to get to the posts I need to move over to here. Yippee! That is my good news for today. 😉

    This is open trackback Tuesday. If you have a post that you would like to share with others, feel free to post it here. If you would like to share your posts with many more people, why not join Linkfest? It is quite easy to join (it’s free), and it is mostly Conservatives. My, and they think we don’t have differing opinions? LOL. Have a wonderful day.

    PS. I will get to your posts to transfer them to the front page as soon as possible. That probably means a while for some, tomorrow for others. It will, however, get done.

    Monday’s Open Trackback

    Starting today, I will be making every effort to finish moving all of my posts (written elsewhere) to this site. This is going to take considerable time. Almost all of my waking hours. I started very seriously yesterday and I got 2 finished, 7000+ to go. This is not encouraging! However, I am going to accomplish this task. (Please pray for me. lol)

    I shall post a linkfest everyday, and I will add your post to the front page as soon as possible. Remember, I will be quite busy. So please be patient. I pray for everyone to have a Merry ChristMass with Good Will Towards Men. (Ladies, that includes us, because the Bible is referring to Mankind. So don’t allow your panties to get in a bunch! lol) Have a nice day.

    Check out my archives

    I’m going to be moving many of my earlier posts over to this site tonight, so have some fun looking around. As I post them, I shall add them here. Does anyone remember Terri Shiavo? That is the first post that I can retrieve from Causes of Interest. It was written there on March 8, 2005, but it was originally posted at My Newz ‘n Ideas. You may notice that I give Causes of Interest the credit. That’s because I was just starting that site, and I want to give credit where credit is due. I almost always cross-posted back to my main site, My Newz ‘n Ideas. That is, before I opened this site. lol.

    Have a great Saturday night, and remember our Troops. Say some prayers, send some cards, send a ‘Thank You’, but do something. Please. Let politics go by the wayside when it comes to the men and women are doing all they can to make sure we remain free to do all that we can. God bless them and you.

    Whatever you would like to share with others, feel to do so (except porn). I just cannot get it together today to write anything. I have over 90 unanswered emails, over 4000 posts that I still have to transfer manually over to this post, and I haven’t read any of my favorite sites in so long-I wonder if they’ll still remember me. Have fun, and God bless each of you. (G-d bless my Jewish friends as well!)

    Chaotic Confidence

    As I sit here watching two football games on the boob-tube and listening to one on the radio, I am also reading and posting articles that should have been posted a while back. I am so glad all this information is stored in a computer instead of my room, because oh boy! what a mess that would be!

    I have read about Air Force sharpshooters, Iraqi Police recruitments, and Paratroopers from Five Nations gathered for the ‘Bright Star’ jump. All of these articles are exciting and give me hope for the future of America.

    I have just updated the articles available to you. They are Army Mechanics Go Distance to Keep Wheels Rolling, Air Force firefighters teach Iraqis blaze fighting basics, Obstacle clearing teams keep Anbar roadways safe and Flag-raising Marks Culmination of Airman’s Dream. They are well worth reading, and they are below this post on the same site. Enjoy!

    Now if only we could get our polititians to act like Americans…

    So where is the chaos? Where is the confidence? I am in chaos, and God and our military is my confidence. (Mostly God, but I wanted to include our military. These fellas are doing great deeds.)

    This is my Sunday Open Trackback post. Please, no porn. I’m pretty okay with any other discussion, but I will not tolerate the degradation of women. Or men, for that matter. Have a great weekend everyone.

    More to come…

    I managed to get my emails down to one page, and it’s just about 6:30 pm. I cannot believe this, but it looks like I’ve just about turned my hours around. I have to go to sleep pretty soon, because my body says so, but I will be back to finish with the news.

    I would, however, like to share my condolences with the Hyde family and say good-bye to Congressman Henry Hyde. He was a good man. May he rest in peace.

    (He was 83 years old, and he died a day or two ago. There are many articles out there, but my bed is calling. Actually, I’m afraid to fall asleep in my chair again. Good night.)

    Today I have reached 5001 hits! (I know it’s odd, but I missed the 5000th.) I am very grateful for this seeing as I’ve only opened this site on June 12, 2007, and I’ve been back and forth to a paid site and this one. I’ve decided to stay right here.

    The visitor came here from Blackfive’s site. The article he/she was reading is the one I wrote about Remembering Johnny ‘Mike’ Spann. He/she left this site via TALIBAN WEAPONS SMUGGLING OPERATIONS DISRUPTED. Whomever you are, thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed your stop here, and I also hope you will return. Thank you.

    Today is Wednesday’s Open Trackback Day. If you would like to share your post, please feel free to do so. The only request I have is that is not porn. I would also like you to join Linkfest, a Conservative Open Trackback community. If you do not belong to this group yet, you may still add your trackback. I’m not a creep. lol.

    How’s your weekend?

    I’ll tell ya, I forgot about my hand being out of use, and I baked some chicken. Don’t forget, my brother was also sick, so he couldn’t go to the store. Besides, I cannot for the life of me get him to celebrate anything. He is not a bad person, he just believes that people should do the kind of things we do on HolyDays all year long. I couldn’t agree more, although traditions are a favorite for this gal. lol.

    Well, I forgot I only had the use of one hand, and it was something else. You should have seen me going at it. It sure was a sight for sore eyes. Good thing I had a stroke before, because I learned how to do things with only one hand. The only problem I had was the hand that I couldn’t use is the hand that learned how to do everything. Oh well.

    I’ve been pretty sleepy a lot, so this will be short. Many of the times I feel obliged to put some of the e-mailed news here, and it doesn’t feel right. Not that it isn’t important, it is. It’s just that I did not write it. On Thursday, that was my writing. It felt good to finally be free to write something of my own. Sometimes I ramble, but who cares, right? LOL.

    Well, that’s all for now. Thank you for stopping by, and may God bless your families, other loved ones, and you.

    I may take the day off…

    I have so much work to do that I may take the day off from blogging. Actually, I will be moving some of my writings: My Newz ‘n Ideas, Causes of Interest, Knickerbocker News, DoD Daily News, DoD Daily News-2, Loving God Holy, Love America First and Love America First-2 from their old place to this blog. Now do you understand why it was so important to me to start over? lol. I needed ONE blog…period.

    I would sometimes cut/paste posts back and forth. Knicerbocker News is the more professional sites I had. I did allow others to write there, but it got too hard to do my posting and editing theirs. It wore me out. I wanted to get the fun back. I’m afraid I won’t be able to do this until I get all of my posts over here. Arghh.

    I pray for everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving. I will be writing a post about the truth of the first Thanksgiving and how we became a capitalist society. Coming attraction! 🙂

    God bless our troops, our country, our families, and the new media! And God bless you.

    Hello and good-night

    As some of you may have noticed, I have been posting close to midnight. I really don’t like doing that, because I have promised myself I would write at least once a day. When I write so close to the deadline, I end up taking all of the morning and into the afternoon to finish whatever dribble or masterpiece come out of my heart. lol.

    That is why I am writing this now. I am so sleepy that my body may take me to that wondrous place where the cherebim dance and the children play. Yes, I am talking about sleep, but I drifted off there for a minute and started remembering some of my childhood dreams. Boy, were they far out or what?! I could fly, how about you? 🙂

    Another day, another open trackback

    I see that it is 11:30 pm, and I haven’t written a post yet. Oops. I guess the easiest thing to do is to have an open trackback. I was planning on writing, don’t get me wrong, but I kept falling asleep while I was doing the research for another post. Oh well. The world isn’t going to stop turning on its axis, the rain won’t stop watering our beautiful countrysides, the air won’t stop exiting, so I am okay with this. I hope you are, too. lol. Have a nice day. Oh yes, and get your buns into Church! Make that Pastor talk about how the Bible DOES relate to today’s current events. Stop boring us to tears! Whoa. Where did that come from? Well, do it anyway! Just be nicer about it…why? Hmm…maybe not. Our Churches need to wake up and get back to basics if they expect us to continue attending. There is evil out there, and if they will not address it? Then they would be better off tying a mulberry bush around their necks and jumping into the sea!

    Almost news from my emails

    Family Research Council: Teen Wins Fight for Antiabortion Club at School. (Washington Post, by Theresa Vargas, 11/06/07).

    Round-up from the Daily Star (Lebanon):

    Libya stands by demand for translations of passports.

    TRIPOLI: Libya on Tuesday confirmed it will turn away Western visitors to the North African nation unless they provide Arabic translations of their passports. “Libya will not reverse its decision, nor will it take into consideration the international reaction” and uproar triggered by the new restrictions, a Libyan official told AFP.

    “The West demands that we translate our passports into English and therefore we must act in kind. It is only normal,” said the official. “Travelers arriving with foreign language passports are perturbing officials at border posts and airports because they don’t know foreign languages.”

    Hmm…where have I heard that before? lol.

    FORGET ABOUT IT! I have started this 4 freakin’ times, and now I couldn’t get back onto blogger for almost 12 hours. I don’t care anymore about what is happening out there. I want to know what is happening here! Sheesh. Sorry ya’ll. I’ll get back to it later. Have a good day.

    Today is Friday, and I haven’t a thing to say. Well, that’s not exactly true. I have too much to say, so I will be writting another potpourri of articles over the weekend (I hope). Until then, this is an open trackback. If you have an article you would like to share with others, please post it here. The only two things I request are no porn and you must leave a link for me.

    I have been trackbacking to many people who never bother to trackback to me. (I must find out what is happening.) Do you think that is fair? Go ahead and have a vote on it!

    Doctor’s visit

    I’m not going to be posting this for the Linkfest anymore. I’d rather keep it personal.

    The doctor thinks there may be something wrong with his liver. I do not. It isn’t because I know more than the doctor, I do not. But the hospital said he was anemic, the doctor said he is missing 5 pints of blood, and he claims it looks like someone who has been drinking. John hasn’t had a drink in over 22 years. There simply is no way that could be the cause.

    He did order many tests, so I feel good about that. We have to go back tomorrow, because he needs to have not eaten or drinking anything. Water is okay, though.

    He also ordered some prescriptions. I had them filled after sending him home. He was tuckered. Well, that’s about it. I’m bushed, so good night.

    Yesterday night (Sunday), I was afraid my brother was having a stroke. Since I had previously had a few, I knew what to do. I started giving him the neurological tests, and he failed terribly. My brother has not seen doctor in over 20 years, that I am aware of, and I was not going to wait until morning. I had waited 18 hours before I called operator, and I received brain damage due to that. So I called the ambulance.

    They made the mistake of asking him why he called them! They would not let me talk. This was very frustrating. Especially since he couldn’t get out of the bed nor call anyone. He was trying to talk, but his words were illegible.

    We got to the hospital, and I remembered to grab a shirt for him. (Forgot the shoes and socks, though. Oops.) We arrive a litte before 2 am. He saw a doctor that ordered so many tests. I was grateful for this. He even gave him a prostate exam (which I have been begging him to get done for several years now). I was relieved by this.

    Well, he wasn’t having a stroke, and I am super grateful for that! Instead, he is anemic, he has some pulminary spots (lungs), and some other things. After I heard spots on his lungs, I couldn’t hear anything else.

    We caught a cab home which the hospital paid for, I went to my doctor’s appointment and embarrassingly fell asleep, nothing was accomplished there but I did pick up my medication that was ordered one week ago (John has been sick since a day before he took me to this hospital), I bought some Chinese food (hey, I may hate their government, but I love their food, lol), and he ate a little bit for the first time since last week.

    I am afraid of those spots, so please pray for him that God will heal him totally.

    I am grateful that he is home, he doing well, and he is not going leave me anytime soon.

    I am angry that people are not more understanding or willing to hear the truth. I CALLED, dang it!

    I am relieved that I was wrong. That’s right. He was not having a stroke, and he finally had the exam he so badly needed. Who knows? Maybe my fear may have caught something worse from happenging? Let us pray so.

    Lesson learned: Do not doubt that inner voice when it says, “It’s time to call the ambulance.”

    PS. I have broken my promise to write at least once a day. In this instance, I forgive myself. I hope you can also. 😉

    I think my arm hurts, but I’m not sure

    For those who care but have not been able to follow this, I will try to put the beginning in a nutshell for you.

    1. I fell backward off the bathtub from where I was standing, and I hit my back and head.

    2. Two days later, my wrist and thumb were paralyzed.

    3. I waited several days to go to the hospital because I had a doctor’s appointment.

    4. Doctor wouldn’t look at it, wouldn’t refill prescription, because apparently I had no appointment.

    5. Went to the hospital the next day.

    6. Diagnosis: Left radial nerve palsy. This is a form of localized paralysis.

    Everyone caught up? lol. I have a cast on my left arm, apparently to keep me from moving my arm. Do not worry. I am only typing with one finger. Yes, it is a pain in my neck!

    Getting back to the pain. My wrist and thumb are numb, but they also tingle. The area around them is what is starting to really hurt. The muscle near my elbow and upper arm are in pain as well. The part that hurts is not my wrist or thumb, but other areas close and far away. I have learned, from a podiatrist, that just because the pain is located in one place does not mean that the source and/or the cure is not in a different place in the body.

    I have removed the cast twice now (three times, shortly) to scratch my arm because it’s itching. I’ve tried putting lotion on it so it would stop, but that only lasted a while.

    My brother was kind enough to take me both times to the doctor. Now his muscles are eating him alive. See, this is the first time we tried out my wheelchair, and she’s no lightweight! When you don’t exercise for a while, this can happen to you.

    My recommendations? Don’t stand on your bathtub without something to grab onto. I now need new shower curtains! lol. Do not put off going to the hospital, no matter how silly you think it is. You’re not the doctor. I did not know about this palsy stuff. It could be more serious than I first thought. If you can, take a cab! This way, you don’t injure those around you. EXERCISE!

    Please pray for John to heal quickly. I believe it’s a bad case of tendinitis. But then again, I’m not a doctor…

    PS. No kidding, you have to watch this. No2Liberals sent this to Nuke’s News & Views, but I just had to ‘borrow’ it. You will laugh your fanny off. Thank you for making me feel better. 😉

    Yes. We must gather whatever strength we have left and keep bloggin’ on, so here I am. I’m sitting here at my computer with over 38 emails that I still have to read and consider posting. Oh, the pain of it all! lol.

    Truth is, I haven’t got a darn thing to say. What? The Left wants us to lose the war and become marxists, the rupukians don’t have a candidate, the Middle East is on fire with many may or may not turn into fires, we shouldn’t leave so we can be there when that time comes, the crazies want us out because they’re tired of the war (could someone please tell me why? they haven’t done a damn thing to help the cause!), China, Zimbabwe, Burma, Sudan, Ethiopia, Somalia, Liberia, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Venezuela, Brazil, Columbia, Peru, Cuba, and many other countries have real prroblems, and all I get to hear on the Sunday shows is a crock of crap! Damn it, people are being murdered. Doesn’t anyone care?

    Well I know our Soldiers, Marines, Seamen, and the such care. They’re the only ones making sacrifices while we sit here grumbling. Their families as well. So frankly, I’d appreciate it if you could take at least one minute out of your oh so important day and pray for them and their success. Thank you.

    Just in case you were wondering…

    I am going to tell you about the struggles I am having with my left hand. A few days ago, it was working fine. I found myself sleeping at the computer again, and I had lost the feeling in my hand. Well, not actually the feeling because it was tingling, but I could not move my fingers.

    I have had 3 strokes before, so I know the symptoms. It was not stroke related. It is not even related to my fingers, oddly enough. The problem starts with my wrist. I can find pressure points all up and down my arm and even underneath my arm! Crazy how our bodies are connected.

    I’ve still not gone to a doctor, but my fingers seem to be regaining strength. I can actually pick something up now, as long as I don’t have to raise it over my head. I have a suspicious it may be only a slight bit of tendinitis. I’ve been trying to rest my hand by using just one finger. lol.

    The odd thing is I cannot use my thumb. This is also affecting my movements in my wrist as far as peripheral reach. (The area of stretchability or reach.)

    So there’s really no big story here. I’m fine. I’m sure my wrist will be back in action soon. Until then, I have some really cool military stories that I have permission to copy/paste. If you choose to ‘borrow’ any of them, please give the credit to the person(s) who actually wrote the article. You could also be kind enough to let people know where you found it. 😉

    Well, I guess that’s it. Not too much to it, eh? That’s the GOOD news! Have a great day.

    PS. I have reached 3000 hits on my blogger site, but I do not know who to give credit for it. Therefore, I shall give the post the credit, and all who came to visit my blogger site. It is one of my Military sites posts which I have permission to copy/paste their articles, so please give the person who actually wrote the article credit if you chose to ‘borrow’ any of them. Thank you.

    I’m having some trouble with my links since I bought this new site, but I realy have some very cool sites. Some you may like, some you may hate, but I’m sure there is at least ONE you will find that you will like. BTW, if any of techies could tell me what’s wrong, I’d be mighty obliged. 😉

    I’d really like to learn how to read the code on my wordpress template. My good friend has suggested a site where I could get some information, but he also said there wasn’t any ‘good’ ones over at the wordpress that they offered.

    I’d ask him, but he’s already done so much for me. I don’t want to take up all of his time. I like to fool around with my templates, and sometimes I get carried away. That is why I need to know what I’m doing. Thanks for understanding. Have a great day.

    Dost Thou look upon thee with adorning eyes? Searching my soul for my every care. Such blessings I humbly accept with the knowledge that I am less than rags upon Thou’s sight. How merciful and graceful Thou art to me. Thou hast come at my time of desperation.

    How dost Thou know? Why dost Thou care? You are surely Omniscient and Compassionate. He has entered in again where he has no place nor right. I pray Thee, protect me. Do not allow mine enemy to find me.

    I pray, LORD, please keep watch over Morgan and his team. Crush his enemies before him, do not allow them sight before him. I pray, LORD, help him in everyway and everyday. The other two that went with him, please protect them and their teams. Even more precious, protect their families with a hedge of protection around them. Morgan and his teams as well.

    You have been doing such a magnificent job. I thank You with all of my heart. What can I do that is worth of Your grace? I have accepted Your Son, Jesus Christ, as my LORD and Saviour. I have repented of my sins. I have asked for the Holy Spirit to abide in my heart. That is all? But that is so simple!

    You have already paid the cost for my sins, and I am so sorry that I put You in that position. I thank You so much for Your love for me. I know You offer it freely for all those who will seek Your face. I pray everyone does.

    Whenever I look around and lift mine eyes up to You, I can see some of Your creation and it is good. It is beautiful. I love those mountains with snowcaps, the valleys with the green, green grass. The streams that run silently with the purest of water. Such a delight!

    I still remember to thank You for my legs, that I may walk. My lungs, that I may breathe again without tubes everywhere! The little and the big things You have blessed me with are so grand, and I thank You.

    Lastly, but certainly not leastly, I thank You for the wonderful people You have surrounded about me. They are caring, intelligent, thoughtful, creative, and they all remind me of You and Your attributes. Yes, I am the most blessed person alive, and that also is due to You. Thank You. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

    How NOT to move

    Oh my, I almost missed my deadline! Well, it’s a deadline I gave to myself when I was just beginning blogging. I used to blog every once in a while. I didn’t take it as seriously as I thought I should, so I promised myself to write at least once a day.

    It has been rather difficult these days. During this move, I am finding things I’ve forgotten I needed to move. My friends are helping me move, yet I sometimes have the email turned off. I am doing a lot of behind the scenes work, like transferring links, and I’m forgetting to check for trackbacks.

    Well, that last one was not entirely my fault. I could not understand why no one was trackbacking to me, so I went to investigate. Then I noticed that one of friends had put the moderator on, to my surprise! I’ve never used this (except at sites that I don’t visit), so I was a little relieved to be honest. Then I spent hours trackbacking to the wrong post and unable to correct it.

    If I have trackbacked to you about the wrong topic, please let me know. lol. I will try to correct that. I don’t know how I’m going to move my pictures over to my new site. I also added www. Now, it doesn’t matter if you use the www. or not, because I have them both set to accept either.

    I have to get my feedburner going correctly, and so many things I should have thought of before I said it was okay. NEVER say it is okay until you have changed everything you want to take with you. I have a sitemeter which I thought about first. 🙂

    My goodness. Why didn’t anyone tell me that I was going to need to do all of these things? That is the reason I writing this post. So that anyone who is thinking about moving will know that you cannot do it in a hurry. Especially if you are going out there on your own. More importantly, especially when you can’t read the language! Argghhh!

    I am quite sure I have not covered everything, so if you feel the need to switch your IPS, please feel free to e-mail me. I’m sure I’ll more to say about this. Have a great day.

    This is my post for today’s open trackback. I believe it is my duty to warn you! (OMG! It’s 6:49am the next day, Wednesday, because I fell asleep at the computer again! I am still going to count it as written last night, because, well, I did. I just never got it posted. lol) I would appreciate it very much if you would at least give Linkfest a chance. This group of people are wonderful, and they have given people like me the opportunity to meet some very wonderful people through these open trackbacks. I also get to read all these articles that I did not have a chance to write. They really make me feel like I have everything covered because of them. You may still trackback from here, but please join us at Linkfest. I promise you won’t be disappointed. 🙂

    I finally did it. I bought a site!

    I would to thank everyone here who has been just as kind as anyone could hope for in any era. I remember when I asked which of the two sites you liked better. Some of you liked both, some, like me, could not make up their mind. Trust me, I know how hard it is! You wouldn’t believe how many sites I’ve looked at in the past days.

    That is one of the reasons I’ve been so busy. Do not worry if you do not see your name linked on the new site. I have a plan! I am going to add them gradually. That way, I can hopefully get more from TTLB. lol.

    The name of the new site is the same, so it won’t be that hard. The only difference is that it is now a .com and not a blogger. Yippee! Please take a look, and leave any comments you want either here or over there.

    I will still be writing here, but the links will go over there. Honestly, what was I going to write about in these past few weeks? Fonts, HTML or XHTML, CSS, presentations, editors, and all this stuff I’m learning all over again? I think NOT! LOL. My goodness, I have very little readership as it is!

    I know about the news that I’ve missed. Bin Ladin, Chavez, Ahmadinejad, and the rest. Can you tell me one they said that was new that did not sound like it came straight out the Democrats talking points? There are some things I want to write and say, and I shall be able to soon. Maybe then you can judge my work better. I just pray you will not forget about me just because I am a Christian and write about Christian things. I also write about everything else you never read about here. It’s almost as if they censored the news all their little egoist selves. Hmm…Thank you. 😉

    I am going to use this post to let everyone know of the good news (and so I don’t lose them!). If anyone would care to trackback to me with your bright, witty, funny, newsy, or ordinary post, please feel free do so. I really like Linkfest, and I recommend you go through there. It is okay if you do not, it is just my preference. They are very good and you can meet some very people. The one rule I have, and I must insist, no porn. I do not like cussing, but if it is about WWIV and you have an article which has been written by a milblogger (or you are a milblogger), then I have a special exception for you. Just let me know ahead of time, okay? lol. Thank you.

    I Need Your Opinion…

    I have been very busy today moving everything I’ve ever written over to Rosemary’s Thoughts (at WordPress). I would like everyone who would like their blog on my blogroll to leave me a comment so I can add it. Also, I need to know if you like the new site or should I stay where I am?

    It’s very easy for me to operate over at WordPress.com, and I’m very disgusted with blogger.com. I don’t know what to do! I need all of your help, and that is why I am putting this post on the open trackback today. PLEASE answer me! I cannot make this decision on my own. If you love me, you will help me. LOL. 🙂

    For a blogger this is supposed to be a time of relaxation, because the traffic (people reading our stuff that we deem important, funny, and all that jazz) has slowed down. This is the time we have found that we can fiddle around with those things we’ve been trying to get done but could not. WHAT’S SO GOOD ABOUT THAT?!? (lol)

    I’m just saying this because, as many of you know, I am in the process of moving over 4,000 posts from other sites over to this one, Rosemary’s Thoughts. I’m not going to erase the other sites, just in case someone happens to stop by. I’ll let them know I have moved and to where. This is how much fun I’ll be having. STOP LAUGHING!

    Sheesh. You’d think my friends would care. You’d think they would let me know a teeny-weeny bit of their knowledge as to how to do this in one step, but noooooooooooooo. They’d rather sit there and laugh at me! Well, I must confess, it is kind of funny if you know what I’m talking about and you don’t have to do it! LOL.

    That is why this is going to have to be my open trackback post for today. I know. It is neither funny, entertaining, informative, intelligent, or anything else, but it’s what I’ve got. Deal with it. (j/k)

    busy, Busy, BUSY!

    As some you may know, I have over eight blogs. I think I’ve solved the problem of having to manually transfer them over to here. I’m using WordPress to import my blogs, then I will export them to here. Cool, eh?! I don’t know why I didn’t think of this sooner. If you ever decide to change your blog to a site or somewhere else but don’t want to go through the hassle, use WordPress. The only problem is that it takes so freakin’ long!

    I’m going to use as my open trackback today, basically because this is only thing I’ve had time to write and it may help someone else. The last post was a funny one, but I don’t really like the way they portrayed the addicts. Not everyone uses needles, not that I would know, ya understand. 😉

    95%How Addicted to Blogging Are You?LOL. There is no way this test of 14 questions can be accurate. Just because I found something I like, and I can find more news online does not make me an addict! Just because I’ll blog about anything (such as this!) does not make me addict. Just because I have over 5 blogs, they did not allow me to explain that I’m trying to move each site over to this one so I could blog quicker and about everything right here. No, this is not nor is it an accurate test of my character. I refuse to be an addict, plain and simple! Come on, guys, I already gave up the booze. What more do you want?! 😉

    Update: On a more serious note, here is an article that everyone should read about President Bush’ visit to the al Anbar province: The Gettysburg of This War, by Frederick W. Kagan.

    Ah, sweet Saturday; OTB

    What have I accomplished today? Let’s see…I went through emails, I worked on my open trackbacks, I got a new mouse that had a cord that was too short (actually, my brother got it for me because I don’t leave the apartment, but that’s a whole different story), my computer froze up on me so I had to shut her down and turn her back on again, oh yeah, I left a comment somewhere–no, I’m not going to say where–that could literally ruin any chances of me ever having a political job. Yeah, I’ve been real busy today.

    Everything I have built my life up for I destroyed in one comment. Actually, it isn’t really the comment that I left, it’s more the facts that are in it. We all have lives outside of this computer, especially us older folks. Many of us have had a hard life, which makes us perfect to know and understand the ins and outs of what works and what doesn’t, what’s good and what isn’t, what’s right and what’s wrong.

    I shall worry about this anyway. God, I wish I could talk about it. I have held it in for so many years now. It is a burden that I will have to carry silently. Sorry. Have a good day.

    Special Election Open Trackback

    I will be manning the phones till late into the evening, so I won’t really have that much time to research and write. You can see the post I wrote about him here. I’ll post the scores from the game on the NFL post I already wrote. Therefore I will be throwing an open trackback party! Yeah! lol.

    Please do not post anything indecent or offensive. Oh? Did I just disqualify everyone? LOL. That is not what I meant! I mean no porn. Geesh.

    No kidding. I was just sitting here flipping through the cartoons when behold my eyes! The Veggie Tales were on the tube! They were so adorable. I think this will be a good thing for our children.

    I’ve searched the net, and I’ve found many articles denounsing NBC for stripping God out of the picture. Do these people have such little faith? No, not NBC, the writers of these articles! Once these children watch Veggie Tales in the morning, do you believe they will not want more?

    Mom and Dad will then order more Veggie Tales from the store. Then they will allow their children to watch the Christian version of all the wonderful messages that are the original Veggie Tales hallmark.

    See, there are many things in this world to get our panties in a wad about, but I just don’t see how this is one of them. Would I like to see them finish each show with a Bible verse? Of course! Is our God so weak that He cannot be found in the cartoon I saw this morning? NO! They did teach morals and courage. They did teach how to solve a problem. When is the last time you saw that in a cartoon?

    Now, where does “that” come from, you might ask? The one and only God. So relax. Live life. Love your neighbor as yourself. Forget the petty bickerings. Most importantly of all, love the LORD your God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength. This will give you a very good day. 🙂

    OTB: (For my NY friends, this does not mean Off Track Betting! lol) I have chosen to open this post to trackbacks today. If you have a post you would like to share with others, please feel free to post a trackback. NO PORN. You would think I would not have to say this, but some people have a lot of nerve. Especially around any and all things religious.

    While you are here, I also some posts from CENTCOM which are pretty encouraging. You will not read about such things in the dinosaur media, so just click on the ‘home’ button at the bottom of this post. Have a very blessed day.

    Today I reached that magical 1,000 visits, and I would like to thank everyone who has made an effort in helping me reach this goal. Woman Honor Thyself is the very nice lady who was the 1,000th visitor, and I would like to thank her specially. Thank you. 🙂

    If you have a topic that is important to you and/or others, why don’t you share it here at my opentrackback? Just go over to Linkfest.us and sign-up. It’s quite simple. Join the community, and enlarge your readership. Have a wonderful day.

    Update: About Linkfest. I find myself having to come back here several times a day, ever since I decided to give each blogger the courtesy of including the title with their link. I do not know how to do this, so I have to do it manually.

    If you have written an article and do not see a trackback from me, please leave me a comment. I will fix that little oversight the first opportunity I find. However since I would have already posted, I will add only the name of your site. If you would like to have your name and title showing, please use the backlink thingy.

    I’m relaxing today

    As you may or may not know, I am in the process of moving all of my blogs (except DoD Daily News-2) over to this blog. I am doing this because it is just too much work for me to pay as much attention to each one as I should. So that is that.

    I am now exhausted! I have to move each post I have ever written over to here manually. You think that is fun? I have over 2000 for this site alone! One at a time. I have to make sure that I keep the right time, the blog and the link. Then I have to go back to that post, erase the contents, and provide a link to here.

    I am leaving the title intact, however. I hate when I find something on Google and the link is no longer valid. I do not desire to do this to anyone. Well, that’s about all I have to say, besides have a very happy weekend and be safe. Maybe you could take a moment out your busy weekend to remember our men and women in uniform doing the rough stuff for us so that we may sleep well whenever we lay our heads down. 🙂

    Open Trackback Tuesday

    Hi everyone. I’ve seen these all over the place and have become interested in them. I’ve decided to open up a place for a free exchange of ideas. Even if you would just like to voice your opinion, share some pictures or cartoons, maybe you found nice music, basically anything (nice) that you have posted you may trackback. The only thing I ask in return is that you mention my site in the article you trackback from.

    It does not have to be much at all. You can say something, “Trackbacked at Rosemary’s Thoughts.” I am in the process of moving from about eight sites to just one site, and I need all the help I can get! Thank you, and have a great day.

    PS. After you trackback, I will add your site and description to this article. Is that the right way to do it? Or should I just add your name and the title of your trackback? Hmm. We’ll try it both ways! 🙂

    Need feedback on CentCom articles

    I am going to keep my DoD Daily News-2, and I am wondering if I should post the whole article here as well, or should I paraphrase them as I have been. What do you think? Would you rather not have to go to a different site? After all, that is why I created this site. Or would you like me to summarize these articles for your benefit? This way, you could just read the ones that interest you. Please let me know. Thank you, and have a great weekend!

    Delayed, but only a little

    I have had a few factors that have hindered my writing and bringing you the news that you deserve and need to know. My apologies. I will be getting to it as quickly as I am able. Please stop back in a while if you wish. I am planning to have some links to some of Blackfive’s videos and some Military news. Thanks. 🙂

    a. The number of physicians in the U.S. is 700,000.
    b. Accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year are 120,000. c. Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171.
    (Statistics courtesy of U.S. Dept. of Health & Human Services)

    Now think about this . . ..

    a. The number of gun owners in the U.S. is 80,000,000.
    b. The number of accidental gun deaths per year (all age groups) is 1,500.
    c. The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is 0.000188.
    Statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners. _________________
    Remember, “Guns don’t kill people; doctors do.” FACT: NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN, BUT ALMOST EVERYONE HAS AT LEAST ONE DOCTOR. _________________
    Please alert your friends to this alarming threat. We must ban doctors before this gets completely out of hand! _________________
    Note: Out of concern for the public at large, I have withheld the statistics on lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention.

    With gracious gratitude to my brother, who knows how I feel about that them doctors, I would like to tip my hat! Oh yes, and gun RIGHTS, too! Thank you, Mr. GrassRoots.

    My brother, while he may be joking, keeps telling me (EVERY TIME he sees me on the computer) to stop blogging. I’ve been called names that Webster has never even thought of before! No, I’m not going to repeat them. lol.

    I spend most of my days answering emails and researching information that I have received from those emails. See, I’m not like the NY Times. I actually care about my credibility! I don’t want to put something out there that is just a rumor or a straight out lie. No, I do not get sent lies on purpose. It’s just that most people, including myself, can be fooled. When that happens, I will let you know ASAP!

    I wish I had some news for you, but I’ve just been too busy, I noticed there were two car bomb attempts over in the UK, and I am floored by what the PM Brown did in response. No one is allowed to use the word, “Muslim”? WTH? That will cause them to stop…my butt! Do these people, do any people, realize that THEY have declared WAR on us? Anyone who does not agree with Sharia Law or Mohammad, you die. Even if you, apparently.

    They blew up the mosque again, what was left of it. All of these were inside jobs. They have found 8 people in England ARE police officers, because they cannot fire them for comporting with the enemy. This PC crap has got to go!

    Well, everyone already knew about this. That’s why I said I didn’t have any news. Everyone be good to your neighbor today and always. Everyone turn in the enemies of our country (whichever one is yours) for as long as it takes. We are in this together, whether you like it or not. There are only two outcomes. Victory or Defeat. Try living with that as our papers and congress are ready to throw in the towel…

    Did you ever…

    …think of a really cool song in your head, but forgot it before you could put it on paper?

    …think of a really good topic to discuss, but forgot to write it down before you feel asleep?

    …know the answer to a complicated question, but forgot it before the teacher got around to calling on you?

    Well, I am having one of those days, so don’t expect too much from me! LOL. BTW, there are so many ‘Have you ever’s’ for me to compile just one list. These were things that actually happened to me – today – so I guess they’re not actually made up. That’s why I stopped when I did. That’s depressing, and I just woke up. However I refuse to allow it to get ne into a funk about it. 🙂

    Okay, I admit. I do not know everything. I have been spending most of the day trying to Digg one of my posts to no avail. Of course, this does not include the time I spent on the phone with Poison Control, because my cat swallowed some Boracks (sp?) today! She was rushed to the hospital (I woke my brother up and had him take her). She is fine now, in case case anyone cares.

    I do not understand (totally) what the words “TITLE” and the such mean. Which goes where? Where can I find this information on Digg? They don’t seem to have any searches for things like this (to my knowledge). I must be doing it wrong, because it sure isn’t working. 😦

    Thank you so kindly. Have a wonderful day.

    Please check for viruses

    I have spent most of yesterday and all night getting Spybot Search and Destroy (just hit next when the Wizard tells you to go back because something is not complete–for the free version) and Ad Aware (also free), because Norton did not catch the viruses that infected my computer. I am so sorry to put you through this, but it is better that I tell you now than to have you infecting others. That is, if you are infected.

    I became suspicious when I went to sign in at one of the private sites where I write. I typed the first letter of my ID, and there was my whole address book! I got into a heated arguement with the administrator of that site for stealing my info, and he gently pointed me to the possibility that I may be infected. I was sure I was not, because I have Norton. YEAH, RIGHT.

    It will take about an hour each for them to scan your computer (if this is your first time), but it is worth it. I do recommend that you read the tutorial for Spybot. Again, I am so very sorry. I hope you find it in your heart to forgive me. Have a day. (I know I left out the ‘nice’ this time. I do not think this is nice.)

    Happy Sisterhood Week


    Girlfriend and Sister’s Week!

    I am only as strong as the coffee I drink, the hairspray I use and the friends I have. To the cool women that have touched my life. Here’s to you!


    National Girlfriends Day

    What would most of us do without our sisters, confidants and shopping, lunching, and traveling girls? Let’s celebrate each other for each other’s sake!

    If you get this twice you know you have more than one girlfriend. Be Happy! Please pass this on to all of your girlfriends and return it the friend who sent it to you!

    It is good to be a woman:
    1. We got off the Titanic first.
    2. We can scare male bosses with the mysterious gynecological disorder excuses.
    3 Taxis stop for us.
    4. We don’t look like a frog in a blender when dancing.
    5. No fashion faux pas we make, could ever rival the Speedo.
    6. We don’t have to pass gas to amuse ourselves.
    7. If we forget to shave, no one has to know.
    8. We can congratulate our teammate without ever touching her rear end.
    9. We never have to reach down every so often to make sure our privates are still there.
    10. We have the ability to dress ourselves.
    11. We can talk to the opposite sex without having to picture them naked.
    12. If we marry someone 20 years younger, we are aware that we will look like an idiot.
    13. We will never regret piercing our ears.
    14. There are times when chocolate really can solve all your problems.
    15. We can make comments about how silly men are in their presence because they aren’t listening anyway.

    Send this to all the bright women you know and make their day!

    On this beautiful day of life, I give thanks to God Almighty. Without His Providence, this beautiful land, our hope in the future of mankind, our love for one another, our gratitude, our mercy, all of these gifts would be devoid of meaning.

    O gracious Lord, thank you for all You have provided for Your children. I pray You will continue to watch over us, and heal our land. On this day, it is to You whom I give thanks first and foremost. As is the case for everyday that I arise from the slumber of the day before’s stresses, challenges, and rewards. Thank You, Lord.

    I also give thanks that I was born in the greatest union that has ever existed on earth, except for the Garden of Eden. I am grateful for the liberties that abound, the rights-given from above so no one shall abscound with them without a fight, the lives of so many who are continuing in this struggle to keep our land free by force and by politics, and I am grateful for my friends and family. I am truly blessed.

    I am very grateful to all of our heroes who will go out to do the dangerous work it takes to keep a country free. They sacrifice for pennies, they live in horrendous conditions sometimes, they follow orders that sometimes make no sense, and they do this for your family and mine. They do this willingly. They are the true heroes of this day.

    They have given us the right to gather amongst our loved ones (or not, lol), while they are far away. Let us take a moment to remember them, even if a moment is all you can spare.

    Today is a hectic day. Today is the day when Mom brings everyone together, cooks all the food, stops all the petty bickering, and has it all done just when you can’t stand the hunger anymore. Mom is a hero as well.

    Dad is the one that organizes who gets to sit near him while the ‘game’ is on TV. lol. Dad’s, we salute you also today. We are grateful for the lives that both Mom and you have provided for us (even though we did not understand half of it. lol).

    Dear, dear friends. What can I say? You are an exceptional group of people who make life worth getting up every morning. Thank you.

    Allow me to begin with the acknowledgement that I am biased toward children. I love them. Now that this is out in the open, I would like to share with you a story that is still in everyone’s prayers who knows of this.

    SPC Selena Lassien spent her time in OIF (Operation Iraqi Freedom) from October 2004 to September 2005. If you thought that was hectic, you haven’t heard anything yet.

    When Selena returned home to Vinton, La, on September 24, 2005, she found herself being chased out of her home by Hurricane Rita. For her 26 years of life, the worst was yet to come.

    After this, her family and she were settled in many different places, with Selena moving from one Fort to the next. Until one day, her boyfriend Darrell and she settled in at Lake Charles. After they had settled in, they received the news. Selena was pregnant.

    It just so happened that she flew to her cousins high school graduation party in Jamaica Plain, Mass. in June 2006. Two hours before she was ready to fly home, she noticed there was something wrong with her pregnancy. She called her doctor back home, he told her to relax and fly home, but Selena knew better. (Not too hard, if you ask me, to second guess a doctor!)

    It was a good thing, too. She went to the hospital emergency room. Being six months pregnant, she was already dialating. They admitted her that day. “After another four weeks in a special bed at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital, tiny Kameryn Bias was born. She was soon transferred to Children’s Hospital, where surgeons dealt with the intricate complexities of this fragile but determined life.” She weighed no more than 1.5 pounds.

    As of today, she weighs in at 2 pounds. At this very moment, Kameryn is having another surgery. I have just learned this from Patty Patton-Bader, President and Founder of Soldiers’ Angles. Soldiers’ Angles will be accepting donations into their general fund for 48 hours, starting last night, to help Selena find an apartment near the hospital.

    She is far away from home, and she really needs our help. She helped us by going to war on our behalf, this is a very simple way for us to show our gratitude.

    You may also find some information at Blackfive’s website. Also, Pundit Review held a three hour vigil of sorts on their radio program last night for Selena.

    Please, no matter if you only have $10, it all counts. Do not be embarrassed. Think about it this way. How would you feel after going to war, living through a hurrican, and then your child is born premature and needed surgery on her heart and intenstines? Would you like to be near your daughter? Would you do whatever it took to do so? Well, we’re just trying to make it a little easier on her. After all, doesn’t she have enough on her mind?

    Please use the paypal, or write to:

      Soldiers’ Angels
      Care of SPC Selena Lassien
      1150 N. Loop 1604 W., Suite 108-493
      San Antonio, TX 78248
      You may also call SA at (615) 676-0239.

    Thank you so much for all that you do. That includes the Veterans who have also stepped up to the plate. Unfortunately, they can only offer housing which is very far away from the hospital. I love you guys, but come on. I wouldn’t even leave the hospital, let alone go far away!

    Please remember to pray for Darrell, Selena and Kameryn. Thank you.

    Hello, I’ll just be a minute

    I am going to attempt to apply technorati to this site, so let’s give it a go.

    Technorati Profile.

    I am so proud of each and every one of our brave men and women who serve this country, but are we forgetting something? Are we only caring about them while they are at war? While they are deployed? What about when they come home? Do we keep in touch? How do they adjust? These are questions that must be answered.

    There is a very special lady who is reaching out to her hero after his return home in May. As an example, he is having a very hard time readjusting. Are we making it any easier with our petty bickering? Is it because of what his “team” went through over there? It may be both.

    The point is, it is out there. It is known as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). I do not believe anyone of us can truly understand, nor appreciate, what this is doing to our Military. To be even more specific, to one very special man.

    He has a special lady, a Soldiers’ Angel (please go here, and adopt a Soldier!), who has not forgotten him. How many of us do? She is still writing to him, and she is now trying to gather enough e-mails of gratitude to send him for his birthday on the 19th of this month. Is she incredible, or what?!

    In his depression, she refuses to forget about him. That would be easier, no? Not for her. That would be the hardest thing for her to do. If you would like to help in this birthday e-mail gathering campaign, please go here: Happy Birthday Hero. The deadline for all e-mails is August 11, 2006 at 6pm, because she will be going to the Post Office at 9am the next day. (The 11th is this Friday. Thank you.)

    Help us to help her try to bring a brightness on his birthday. After all he has seen, he was in one of the worst areas in Iraq, he deserves our gratitude and our best. They all do.

    We just to let him know that he is appreciated and not alone in this world. It may not seem like much after all he’s seen, but could it hurt?

    Calling all Vets! I need some advise here. What can we do once they come home? What is PTSD? What should we expect? How can we best help someone with this? What are the symptons?

    We need classes and information available to all Americans on this issue. Maybe we could petition the government for some PSA’s about it? I can really use your help, you in the know. Thank you for your service, thanks everyone else, and have a great day.

    A Blessing

    A couple of days ago, I was stunned by a piece of mail I received. It was by my Pastor from over 2 years ago!

    See, I had stopped going for a while, because I had fallen ill. Then, there was no follow-up. No one missed me. No one even knew I was gone!

    Well! You can only imagine how that made me feel. I am home-bound, and no one cared. This is before my blogs. I thought I would just wait around for God to declare, "Okay, you have suffered enough. Come home!"

    This obviously did not happen. Instead, what did happen, is the Pastor of my Church made an appeal to me to return to Church.

    In case you are wondering what my answer to him is, it is, "YES!" I have stopped feeling sorry for myself. Someone has remembered me, and they care that I do not go to hell. 😉

    USA Army SealToday, 231 years ago, the men (and women) of our country came together to form a more perfect Army to be honored with our blessed Flag. At that period in time, men and women understood what it meant to sacrifice for that which was worth the sacrifice. They honored each other and the United States (although she was not yet the United States). There was no shame in defending one's country, one's family, one's self.

    Happy 231st Birthday USA Army!Today, I still hold these truths to be as valuable. America is indeed beautiful, but she was purchased through the blood of many whose boots I am not worth to clean. I honor you, Military. I respect you, and I know you are the only ones standing between harm's way and me. I give you my deepest gratitude. Thank you.Warrior Ethos

    We have heard so many stories about our flag. Some even try to dismiss them, while others disrespect her by setting her aflame. As you do this to a symbol that is so dear to us, please remember this: Without those whom you protesting, you would not carry the freedom with you to do such a thing. In some countries, you would receive the death penalty.A Call to Duty

    So treat her with respect. Understand that we do not worship our flag, but we love her. It was the flag who inspired Francis Scott Key on that battle at Fort Henry of the shores of Baltimore Harbor in 1812 to write our national anthem. It was the sight of our flag that let them know, that inspired them to carry on with strength, that we still held the line.

    You see, if we had lost that one particular battle, we would have lost it all. So be thankful. Understand what you are doing before you do it, and thank those brave men and women whom give you the opportunity to act like an a**.


    Now for some remarkable remembrances: Blackfive, Theodore's World has one for Flag Day and one for the Army's 231st Birthday and Euphoric Reality also salutes our flag.

    PS. I cannot get blogger to allow me to publish a flag. 😦 Sorry.

    I Beg Your Pardon

    I am terribly upset with myself that I have not been keeping up here. I have been oh so busy! Please forgive me. I shall return soon. We will finish Genesis' last two chapters, and we will start the new testament. Does that sound like a good plan to you? It is almost Easter…I wonder…He works all things together for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose! I am in no one laying claim that 'God' made me do it! (Take the time off.) God bless everyone of you, and I shall be back soon. 😉

    Welcome to this new site. We will be providing news that is not usually covered or carried to competion. We find this missing in today’s media. It does not inspire anyone when we are told there is a problem, flood, fire, war, whatever, and then not being informed on the results of the situation or what we may do to help.

    Are you aware that Pakistan and India are having peace talks? Yes, it is a great success to get them to speak to each other, and the success belongs to them! We almost had a nuclear war, yet you did not hear of this. This is how I hope to enlighten the conversations and education. I do believe it is vitally important to keep a people willing to care, you must tell the whole truth…that means the good, bad, beautiful, and ugly. We will start reporting shortly. WE research our articles. (Couldn’t resist that dig!)

    If you find any bias, please bring it to the attention of Miss Davidian. She is the Editor-in-Chief and wishes success for us all. Success for you is success for us. You may reach her through the e-mail using RE: Miss Welch. Please leave a small description in the title. Thank you.

    Working on blogs, AARRRGGGG!

    As you may have noticed, I have been trying to make my site look more presentable. HA! It doesn’t help that I don’t know what I’m doing, but come on! I did it before, so what is different now? I was trying to put an Iraqi “Support the Pro-Demacracy Party!” button in my template, and that is what got the whole thing started! Oh well. I hope you can still read it. I will be writing an article on the holocaust-in Iraq, and the mass graves deserves an article, also. Well, everyone have a blessed day, and I’ll see ya in passing!

    Since I have not yet revealed my “self” to you, I thought today may be a fine day to start. Sundays are very special to me, since they are the day I set aside for the Lord. Actually, every day is the Lord’s day, but we Christians in particular set aside this day.

    I have been very happy, very angry, and very confused these past weeks. I am full of joy for the Iraqi football team. Look how wonderfully they play! I am very proud of them. I am very angry at Sadr and Allawi. Sadr-because he causes so much pain to the Iraqis, and Allawi for not realizing that if you let him get away with it, Iran will just arm him again. What kind of a man hides in a holy place? Does he desire the shrine to be destroyed? Do people worship the building, or do people worship what the building represents? If it is the first, then they have no god. If it is the second, then buildings can be repaired or rebuilt. Once someone fires a weapon of war at a soldier of war, they have just declared that building a target. Does he not realize he is not safe? If the new government prevents the coalition from finishing the job and someone wants to find fault with someone, find it with Sadr and Allawi. Sadr is the murderous punk. Allawi for appearing weak. I am confused, however, as to why we don’t take appropriate action. Why not? Does our government want to look weak? Who is tying my President’s hands? The State Department? They need to go, all of them (state dept!) Do not the Iraqi people deserve to live in peace? Yes, they do.

    I could pour out my heart for the peoples all over the world that are living in fear and under a corrupt government or communism, but I am afraid no one would care. How selfish have we become? Did we forget how we became great? It was not by our own strength, no! It was the loving hand of God that led the way. Now, some want to forget He even exsists! How dare they! I am outraged! Don’t tell me not to believe what I know to be true. I tolerate the ignorant, because it doesn’t make sense to argue. They won’t change their minds, and by all means they shouldn’t. At the same time, would they please, PLEASE, be at least half as gracious to me??? They preach tolerance, but what they mean is “do as I say. My way or no way.” That, my dear Marxist friends, is not tolerance. It is totalitarianism. This, I will not tolerate! Just as before, I will fight them with prayer, calling my Congresswoman, my Senators, the President, and continue in my efforts with organizations which I belong. We are so blessed that we can still fight without any bloodshed! Thank God.

    I still haven’t said much about myself, huh? Oh well! I find it diffifcult to speak about myself, because I don’t really know what to say. I love to write, I enjoy writing poetry, I love the Charlie Daniels Band (country music,) Toby Keith, my cats, all animals, people-most of the time(!), etc. Boring, huh? Ha ha! 🙂

    I was born in a small town outside of Philadelphia. I lived there until I was nine, then my family moved to upstate New York. I have lived a rather fancy free, yet challenging life. I am an ex-alcoholic since August 19, 1987. I can sometimes go on and on if given the opportunity. I have had 3 brain strokes, but I am fine. I have a port wine birthmark on my face. When I was born, it covered the whole left half of my face! I have learned a lot by looking like this.

    I have discovered that some people are shallow, while others are not. I can very easily get rid of the ones who are by not wearing make-up. I hate make-up. It makes me feel phony. I used to wear it all the time, though! Funny, isn’t it, the changes we go through as we grow.

    I love this journey called life. I have been to 47 states, and I even lived in 9 states, stayed in a few for more than a week! The one thing that impressed me the most was how much we have in common and how much stays the same, just change the names and places. Of course I wasn’t politically active at the time I was trampsing around the USA, so I can’t speak on that behalf, but I sure enjoyed myself. I would get this itch that said go here or there, and off I would go! I don’t do that anymore, and that makes me sad, but it is okay.

    Well, that is about as much as I am willing to share at this moment. I don’t even know if this is politically intelligent. Ah, who am I kidding? I don’t care what people find out about me. I am not ashamed for being alive. I thank God (not as often as I should) that I am alive. Thanks for reading all of this, if you’ve gotten this far.

    Let me know what you think, and I could sure use some helpful hints on creative writing, topics, what not to say, etc. God bless the USA, Afghanistan, Iraq, the UK, Poland, Italy, and all the coalition countries, all people that are being oppressed by their government-may they have freedom soon, the children, our families, friends, and neighbors. Have mercy on us, dear Lord, and show us the way. Keep our feet straight away on the path You have set for us, and grant us the strength to weather the storms of life. I pray for Your Peace, Your Love, Your Wisdom, Your Grace, Your Justice, Victory and Your Mercy. I love You, God. Thank You.

    That’s all folks! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! (Looney Tunes cartoons!)

    Links to Remember

    My Newz ‘n Ideas: This is a reminder of cool links.

    Rosemary’s Thoughts, however, is where I am now.

    RFA: Radio Free Asia covers much news that we will never hear from the closed areas of Asia where we should be listening and become more aware.

    Iraq The Model is a wonderful blog that tells us the truth about what is actually going on in Iraq.

    Real Clear Politics is a collection of articles written in newpapers that day.

    Opinion Jounal is a very good online source of news and opinions that puts the icing on the cake! It’s tops!

    Town Hall is a conservative site for more politically inclined readers. You will find much information here.

    White House is a link you can use to speak to the President of the United States. You write your comments, and he reads them (or he has someone read them and tell him what people are saying!)
