Games For When We Are Older

July 23, 2008

A relative of mine sent me an e-mail the other day with games that we can play when we get older. I really don’t know what to think of this so I thought I would ask you.

  • Sag, you’re It.
  • Hide and go pee.
  • 20 questions shouted into your good ear.
  • Kick the bucket
  • Red Rover, Red Rover, the nurse says Bend Over.
  • Musical recliners.
  • Simon says something incoherent.
  • Pin the Toupee on the bald guy

I wonder if he was trying to tell me something?? Should I be upset??

Shhhhhhhh! Keep it under your hat and…Don’t Tell a Soul!

Great Advice!

July 10, 2008

I was given a bit of great advice recently and I think it’s so good that I thought I would pass it on to you!

IF A DOG WAS THE TEACHER YOU WOULD LEARN STUFF LIKE:

When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.
When it’s in your best interest, practice obedience.
Let others know when they’ve invaded your territory.
Take naps.
Stretch before rising.
Run, romp, and play daily.
Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
On warm days, stop to lie on your back in the grass.
On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
When you’re happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
No matter how often you’re scolded, don’t buy into the guilt thing and pout … Run right back and make friends.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
Eat with gusto and enthusiasm. Stop when you have had enough.
Be loyal. Never pretend to be something you’re not.
If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently.
And never trust anyone until you have sniffed their butt!!

Ahhhhh! Wouldn’t it be great if everyone would learn the lessons of our 4 legged best friend…just think how much better and easier life would be!

Shhhhhhhh! Keep it under your hat and…Don’t Tell a Soul!

Recycle Today for a Better Tomorrow!

February 10, 2008

We hear all of the time that we should recycle to help protect the environment but how much do we really know about recycling?

For instance did you know that approximately 40% of the waste in the United States comes from paper but Americans only recycle about 25%-30% of paper products? This adds up to destroying close to 30 million trees a year just on newspapers!

And those Styrofoam cups that you use to drink your coffee out of every morning? You could circle the Earth more than 400 times with the amount of those cups that are used every year!

Those glass bottles that you throw away? They’ll still be there 1000 years from now!

Did you know that if you recycled just one aluminum can a day that you could save enough to run your television for 3 hours?

In the United States one in every six trucks is a garbage truck! With the amount of waste that is thrown away is it any wonder that landfills are closing up at the rate of approximately 2 per day in the United States alone?

Did you ever stop to think what is going to happen to us at that rate? Where will we be living 100 years from now when all of the Earths surface is just one big landfill?

Do you want to see your future generations with no place to go except on a big pile of trash? True, we probably won’t be here by that time, but they will be our future families none the less and if you don’t want your family to live on a landfill now, then why would you want your family of the future living on a big landfill?

If everyone would recycle just a little bit then we can begin to protect our Earth for the generations to come, it’s better for the environment and helps to prevent global warming also.

By starting to recycle now, you can teach the children good habits that they can pass on to their children and their children’s children so that your family and our Mother Earth can indeed have a future!

Shhhhhhhh! Keep it under your hat and this time…Do Tell a Soul!

Politicians Sing For Change

January 29, 2008

Seems like we love to hate them, love to make fun of them and love make them the butt of all of our jokes, especially at election time, and why?

Because they are always going on about how they would do things differently, this time they are all singing for change.

Change!

Shhhhhhhh! Keep it under your hat and…Don’t Tell a Soul!

Watch a Bit of a Movie This Week-End?

January 11, 2008

If you are like me then you like movies. But to tell you the truth I can’t remember the last time I sat down in a movie theater and watched a movie…it must be at least 20 years! I used to go to the drive-ins a lot but haven’t done that in at least 15 years!

After the VCR came out that ended my movie going experience. I love sitting in the comfort of my own home, hitting the pause button when I want to get up and get some popcorn or go to the…? coming back, hitting the un-pause? button and going on with the movie as though time had stopped for those few minutes or even hours!

But not only do I have the pleasure of watching movies on my VCR and DVD but now I watch a lot of movies on my computer. Since I spend the biggest part of the day behind my lovely computer it’s easy!

When I get a bit bored or even just need a break for a little while I can open up a bit torrent and watch a movie, or half a movie, or a quarter of a movie and go back to it when I wish.

The greatest thing about these bit torrents is that the ones I get are free! I find myself watching the latest movies from my computer at no cost to me, only the download time, (and I do that while I am sleeping)!!

I simply go to peer to peer Websites, find the movie that I want and download it. Of course when I have a movie to share then I add it to the peer to peer group so that others can enjoy the movie that I have watched just as much as I did.

It’s an absolutely great way of sharing your favorite movies and of course getting back also. This week alone I was able to watch 4 great movies that I downloaded from the various peer to peer groups. Two of the movies relatively new, but ones that I had been wanting to see for a little while and two of them, new to Holland. In fact the 2 new ones just came out in the cinema around the New Year!

I have quite a few peer to peer Websites that I go to, a couple of them my favorites for various reasons. But recently I came across a new one that is in it’s Beta stage that seems to have great potential!

Why don’t you check it out and see if I’m not right and since the week-end is approaching why not download a movie and enjoy it in the comfort of your own computer chair…or better yet, hook your computer up to your TV and watch it on a larger screen??

You Torrent (BETA)

(Just a little hint…it does take quite a long time to download one of these movies and if you’re done with the movie I would suggest deleting it from your computer because they do take up quite a bit of space)!

Have a great week-end and, sit back, watch a movie, enjoy and…

Shhhhhhhh! Keep it under your hat and…Don’t Tell a Soul!
