My 2-Minutes on Remembrance Day 11/11/11

During my 2-minutes of silence earlier today, I was thinking about the ages of the majority of those men and women who died in WW1 and 2, and that they had never even hit adulthood. “Boys sent to do the job that men could no longer do”.

I used to picture war…Hollywood Style. Grown men fighting along side of men…but they were not grown men; boys who had to grow up oh too fast, fighting along side those of the same…

No backing out… There was no, “I wish to quit the military”. They were in it until one of 3 things took them out: serious wound, end of war, or death. Not great odds.

Yet knowing all the risks they believed in something greater than themselves, and they went valiantly into war.

(I pray not) but if there was a ‘necessity’ to enlist an army today and mothers & fathers were asked to allow their 17-18 year old to pick up a gun and go kill the enemy, there would be riots in the streets of public outcry!

But that’s what they fought for, to give other young men and women the freedom to grow up. To live full lives, and to develop their potential.

Love and respect all our veterans. They were young once, and loved life to the fullest, but they put everything on the line so that we can now have the freedom to choose our fate. They sacrificed their youth, so you could enjoy yours.

Respect them.


Hey Nigeria, You Owe Me $3.4 Million!? PAY UP!

Never been here...

Never been here…

Hi b’ys!

I gets emails all the time from people trying to sell me crap but, this email I got screamed “post me!”. And made me wonder how many morons in this world falls for it!!

Dear: Beloved
I am Mrs. Carolyn Xxxxx; I am a US citizen, 48 years Old. I reside here on Orlando Ave., Lubbock, TX 79423-1942 United States.

I am one of those that executed a contract in Nigeria years ago and was unable to receive my money; I paid over $40,000 trying to get my payment from different offices in Nigeria but all to no avail.
So I decided to travel down to Nigeria myself with all my contract documents and I was directed to meet Rev. Mark Xxxxxxxxx, who happens to be the chairman of Debt Reconciliation Committee.

When I met him he sat me down and explained everything to me. He said that those people that are contacting us through emails are fake, he then took me to the Intercontinental Bank Plc which happen to be the paying bank as approved by the government. Honestly this  singular visit of mine to the bank was the beginning of my much deserved fulfillment in life, as I am  now the happiest woman on this Earth, because I have finally received my full contract funds of US$3.4Million.

It was when I went to Rev. Marks office to personally appreciate what he did for me, that he showed me all the information of those that have not yet received their payment; which is presently pending with their committee, it was on this process that I saw your name as one of the outstanding beneficiaries. That is why I decided to email you directly to strongly advise you to STOP dealing with those people who claimed that your funds are with them because they are not with your funds, they are only making money out of you and feeding from the sweat of innocent 
Name Rev. Mark Xxxxxxxxx’s Email:
Office Address: 13, Bank Road Ikeja- Lagos Nigeria. 

It is important you stop dealing with those impostors who are claiming that your funds are with them when it is all lies, they are only taking advantage of you and ready to dry you up until you have nothing to eat. Please note that the only money I paid throughout this process was just $520 for IRS permit, which I believe you already know about therefore you have to take note of this. Once again you should please stop dealing with those liars who are bent on sending you to bankruptcy by asking for different kind of outrageous fees to complete your transfer. Remember “a stitch on time saves nine”
Thank You and Be Blessed.
Mrs. Carolyn Xxxxx

Like honestly, WTF?
First off, you just jumped on a plane to go check things out in Nigeria? Second, what the hell would some chairman of Debt Reconciliation Committee be doin showin you ANYthing? But it was nice of you to think of me…

Til Next Time Remember: if you fall for this type of email, you deserve everything you get…or in this case, get taken away. $520 in your pocket is better than in a con mans…


Me Bucket List – Apocalypse Edition

I have to admit, I’m not much of a religious man but with all this talk about raptures and apocalypses I thought I’d give me life a look, and see if there are some things I want to strike off me bucket list before the ‘new’ date for the rapture, October 21, 2011. So, here is an abridged version of me original bucket list of 1007 things:

1 ) Watch the entire Star Trek: Next Generation series. Mmmm..Deanna Troi…
2 ) Re-watch the M.A.S.H. finale. *tear*
3 ) Learn how to breakdance.
4 ) Ride a horse (save a cowboy?)
5 ) Watch some yoga. (Ohhh those yoga pants…)
6 ) Burn a couple dozen pair of Crocs (sorry in advance Mother Nature.).
7 ) Dance like there’s nobody watchin.
8 ) “Twins Basil…Twins…”
9 ) Skydive (WITH a parachute).
10 ) Meet Platinum Blonde!
11 ) Square dance with a hillbilly.
12 ) Get a Brazilian (no idea what they are but I hear the girls find um sexy).
13 ) Have a nice feed of fresh baked bread (mudder, countin on you fer this one).
14 ) Dance, dance, dance the night away.
15 ) Start the apocalypse.

But everyone, this time if the old kook is wrong, and we wake to a new day dawns on October 22, can we not keep him in the news? He obviously doesn’t have all his faculties….

Til Next Time Remember: it’s great when youngsters listen to their grandparents, but should the grandparent start talkin apocalypse, maybe it’s time to call someone ‘professional’…cause someone’s gone a little nuts…
