i am furious.. this is despicable

a rant
i received a phone call the other day. someone looking to find a neighbour. they were anxious to find her.. a personal call they said. i thought it was odd but i said ok, i will take the message. after they gave me the phone number (an 800 number..first clue) i asked if they were a collection agency. she said yes. well..... i told her off. how dare they interrupt me at home to try to collect a debt for someone who lived a few doors away from me. how underhanded that was.

i have received a couple of phone calls from those agencies that hound people for their debts.. not my debts, i have none, but for those that have the same last name as mine. i usually ignore them until they have called more than oh say 7 times leaving messages on my machine. i have called them back letting them know i am not related to that person, usually with attitude, threatening lawyer action.

this latest tactic from collection agencies is despicable. i don't care what my neighbours owe and i don't want to know. the name of the agency is listed below and i will be sending them a snail mail telling them that their tactics are entirely unacceptable

i received this email. its just one of thousands i am sure

Pause a moment, reflect back.

These events are actual events from history..

They really happened!!!

Do you remember?

1. 1968 Bobby Kennedy was shot and killed by a Muslim male extremist.

2. In 1972 at the Munich Olympics, athletes were kidnapped and massacred by
Muslim male extremists.

3. In 1979, the US embassy in Iran was taken over by Muslim male

and it goes on to name many atrocities commited by muslim males .. all true

but what really pissed me off was this
According to The Book of Revelations:

The Anti-Christ will be a man, in his 40's, of MUSLIM descent, who will
deceive the nations with persuasive language, and have a MASSIVE Christ-like

in fact the book of revelation says no such thing - it is quite a dragon with multiple heads and all that

i say check out the book of revelation.. chapter 13 - the description is quite different. and don't send out stupid emails

i am unapproachable .. so my friends say

shes not there

personally i think they are wrong...

i love passionate songs

this is how a heart breaks

this is a great video how a heart breaks. you run and run and run and run and run and run and run....
until you crash

as the middle child i loved this song

leave me alone i said

more dancing - i am on holiday after all

oh how she twirled

i am in the mood for dancing

hanna in mid maryland

well, hanna passed through here with a lot of rain - a nice good soft soaking summer rain. i was really hoping for a good rousing wind as well. >sigh<

update: there are some lovely winds. not damaging but enough to bring out the romantic in me. and the sky is an absolutely beautiful combination of clouds and blue sky.

Palin Sexism Watch

i found this new blog (linked over to the right there) via instapundit. there are over 70 posts in just 5 days, linking to what are smears and sexist remarks all about sarah. amazing. and i am sure she hasn't captured them all. she has focused on u.s. reports, except for one aussie. go have a read, if you need a rise in blood pressure. ;)

they can go back to obscurity for all i care

lgf reported this

sarah palin could have revived their career LOL
ungrateful wenches

a liberal making sense

a liberal making sense

i found this link when stalking over at andrea's place (link to the right of me - haw! that sounds like a song) thanks, andrea

and yes, i am facinated with sarah. she is the most exciting person to come along in politics in years.

They simply hate her for who she is.

thanks to researcher extraordinaire minicapt for this link.

why they hate her

There are reasonable criticisms that can be made of Sarah Palin, both as governor and a vice presidential selection. Yet little of what we have seen in the last six days has been either reasonable or critical (in the traditional sense of the word). Instead, much of the left and many in the media simply lashed out at Palin, particularly at her family

So why? What is it about Sarah Palin that convinced so much of the left to objectify and assault her so quickly, and with such manifest maliciousness? There are many reasons, but four of them stick out in particular, each having to do not with Palin’s politics, but with her family.

in my mind, she is a role model for all of our daughters (and sons). she has integrity, poise and a wicked sense of humour. oh, and she takes no enemies.

the hypocrisy surrounding Sarah Palin

i just don't get it. Sarah Palin is everything wymyns lib has been working toward. she is a strong independent woman, she has been an advocate for her children, raising them while working. she has achieved remarkable success. the governor of a state, no matter what the population, is nothing to scoff. yet, the liberal moonbats have done nothing but demean her, including questioning her ability to be a good mother while performing her duties. and why? because her politics differ from theirs. what a bunch of hypocrites.

actually, i do get it. those loonies tried to steal my soul when they thought i was young and foolish. my parents raised me right.

they should have been protesting at the DNC as well. these people are absolutely senseless.. how many of their "heroes" voted for the war?

nicole kidman

was a better actress when she was an aussie and a redhead

just my humble opinon

soup's on!

the garden is trimmed and weeded, new flowers are planted, errands are done, so now 'tis time to make soup. first up is cream of asparagus with leeks, then leek and potato, then a hodge podge of green veggies in a beef broth. since the cook is making all these up as she goes, lots of black swan cab is called for! so put your feet up and i will call you when ready to serve

update: the soups are ready and i am still standing ;)

and managed to keep the kitchen somewhat clean in the process..

Hurricane Gustav

it is good news that gustav has weakened. let us hope that he doesn't pick up too much steam as he heads across the gulf. and i am glad that the good governor of louisiana (come on, do you really think nagin ordered the evacuations on his own?) took the proper precautions and ordered everyone out of new orleans.

there are also people in texas who are going to be hit and probably harder than new orleans. i pray and wish for their safety.

UPDATE: early days yet, but it looks like the storm of the century isn't! (9.02am east coast time)
