Just So You Know

Let me start this by saying if at any time you read a message that compels you to a response, by all means... feel free to continue the learning. You DO NOT have to leave your real name or any name for that matter. When you click "post a comment" or however it reads, you have 3 options. Once on the actual comments page, you'll see prior replies as well. Then there's the 'leave a comment' field. Under that are CAPTCHA and 'choose an identity' (name) options. CAPTCHA is designed to slam SPAM as well as let me know a human is posting vs. a computer generated response. Again, I do not consume beef nor pork so SPAM is not welcomed. Even a photograph of it bothers me. Ok, not really but you get my point and hence you will see the moderation message when you've finalized your post. The identity/name options are as follows:

1) Log-in using (drop down menu for those registered with those services)

2) Nickname and URL - allows you to choose any name and/or link your site to it

3) Anonymous (you can use it but I still have the right to decide if it gets published publicly or not - GOOD FOR ME - YAY!!)

So there ya go. Send me $49.99 if you use these instructions in your own BlogSpot. Cash, cashier's check, money order and Western Union accepted 24/7. :D

When life give you lemons, make lemonade... dangit

And be sure to add lots of sugar (patience). While traveled across town the muffler fell off the car. So I pulled over and said what every women says... "oh shyt!". While meditating, a nice gentleman got out of his car and tried to help. He used some old rubber found on the ground but it was not long enough to hold the heavy muffler in place. Of course I had no wire hangers in the car as I hate them from my childhood. Anyhow he left and I pulled under the over pass near some not so grassy area and meditated some more. Finally, I get out and looked around on the ground for something else to use since I'd searched the entire car already... even the armrest. :p

Suddenly I found a piece of hose (tubing) which was quite long. I put that on after I cleaned it off. Hey, I'm semi-germaphobic, ok? Anyhow, I looked down and saw a piece of very rusted wire 3 - 4 coat hangers thick and proceeded to clean it off too. Funny the Dr. today asked me about a tetanus shot. Hmmmmmmmmm... Onwards......... I took the hose back off and decided to thread the wire inside of the hose to make it sturdier since I had no strength to tie the wire to the pipes I needed. Since the hose was much longer I tied it into 3 knots and managed to make it over 30 more miles to my destination. It was a loud ride but safer under speeds of 50 mph. Not only was the traffic flow on my side but so was GOD.

I really believe there were several Angels watching over me. But even if it was just one... one was all I needed and am every blessed for him/her.

2 Bees From Oakland - 'Realimentary'

Not since Moms Mabley have I been impressed by the female comedians of my era and forward. I found some grand at what they are supposed to do but none have made me cry AND laugh like she did. I would choke as a child listening to her talk about her old husband and the great racial divide of that time period. Yes, I said "listening" because it was that long ago that as a Black female comedian she was not allowed on TV for many reasons. Color was just one of them. Her mouth was more raw than any man I can name today. If there were televised episodes of her, it was more likely the few movies she managed to get into during the speckled life she led.

So, today I was on You Tube and somehow landed on '2 Bees From Oakland'. I went to their channel there to see a total of 3 videos and literally fell off a queen sized bed laughing so hard. It's Miss Laura with her "homegirl" Luenell and their "one eyed therapist" view on everything. Like Katt says "evvvvvvverrrrrrrrythang" - seriously. I don't smoke weed, never have but that skit was too friggin' HAHlarious. So, without more chitter chatter, let's get to the subject matter.
