First you have your fish monger scale and gut the fish but lead the head on.
Now open the fish and lay the two sides flat, season with salt, pepper, Old Bay, and lemon juice. Take some thinly sliced tomatoes, onions, lemon slices and layer them with herbs of your choice. Cilantro is nice but whatever you enjoy. I would imagine that dill would be another good choice. Now close your fish and grill until done.
How is that for simple? The amount of all ingredients depends on your taste. Honestly does it get any easier and tastier than this?
I cannot wait to enter this dish in the Great American Seafood Cook Off. I am sure it will win a prize. Have you ever participated in this event? I have not, but I am looking forward to my very first entry.
I am going to have to take a trip down to Boston to the farmers market. You can get the most delicious seafood there. It is local and fresh, two words that are a must when choosing fish.
Does anyone have a recipe that they think can beat this one? If so, give it your best shot and enter the contest yourself. Remember to send me a copy of the recipe though, and if you win.....
The first husband William Edward Dossett (i find it strange that she kept that name when she married her next victim) was initially thought to be stampeded by his cattle. Now that is one way to cover up a murder. Take him out in the middle of the field and let his cattle walk all over him. What a horrible death. For his sake I hope she did that to cover up the actual murder. I hope they charge her with abusing a corpse if that is the case. I don't know what the "legal" term for that would be and frankly I don't care to look it up.
The second husband she was much more humane to. She just shot him and then claimed he killed himself. Isn't that what all domestic-situation killers do, they claim suicide.
Of course, Raynella Dossett Leath is innocent until proven guilty. But, if it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and waddles like a duck....... it's a duck.
I also have a suggestion for both men and women. Don't marry a widow (er)! You never know how they became that way. (now I don't want angry comments from all you widows(er) out there, it is said tongue and cheek.)
I think for many of us this election is not about who you will vote for, but it is about who you will vote against. Obama talks change. Great I have about $.83 in my pocket. Will he just take that and go away. I don't think we can afford the type of "change" Obama is offering. Frankly he doesn't even know what type of change. He has just come across a nice buzz word for the young'ins.

Jason is obsessed with fast cars. The Porsche, BMW, or Audi. He doesn't care just as long as it is fast. He has corrupted my son.
Don't get me wrong, I would love to supercharge our Jeep. That thing has very little pick up. I would love to turbo charge the Wrangler. It has power but zero to sixty takes about ten minutes. It is the one thing that disappoints me about the Wrangler. I like to drive fast but only on the highway where I have plenty of visibility and long flat roads. Jason loves to drive on country back roads, with lots of twists and turns.
Jason, I am sure, would love to supercharge his BMW. I can see him now on his computer at www.turbochargerpros.com buying everything that would fit on his credit card, and drooling all over the keyboard. Several years ago he had one of the first remodeled VW Bugs. That car was cute but there was no way that car had enough power and speed for Jason. Had he know about this web site I can assume that he would have had that vw turboed within seconds of buying it.
If you are like Jason, or CAL for that matter, and "need" to supercharge, turbo, or trick out your ride? This is the website that has everything you need.
Oddly enough they didn't have anything to help me and my Jeep Wrangler.
CAL and his friends decided that it would be funny to trash a r/c car that CAL has had for a couple years. Now that may sound old for a r/c car but it was expensive when we bought it - and it was awesome. It played music and the wheels had those spinning hubcaps. When the boom box played the entire vehicle would just shake. All the kids loved playing with it. We have a "strict" rule that you are not allowed to crash the two cars (the other being a Jeep Wrangler). CAL seems to forget rules so easily.
Then last night he sprayed his best friend in the face with sunscreen. He thought he was it was "funny" FUNNY how in the heck is that funny. He could have blinded her!
I think I am going to stop blogging about this because I am making myself upset again.
Maybe in a few days I will be able to pick up where I left off.

I don't know about you but I need the AC when I am stuck in bumper to bumper traffic with no end in sight. We have not had many heat-waves this summer but I cannot imagine living in Florida or California without air conditioning in the car.
My neighbor recently had some trouble with the AC in her Mercedes. Her husband is a big real estate tycoon here in NH. They took it to the dealer and he was able to troubleshoot that the problem was with the Mercedes AC Compressor. Boy I am glad that I didn't have to pay for that repair. If they could have made the repair themselves they could have saved a ton of money at Discountacparts.com. They have air conditioning compressors, and other auto ac parts for most makes and models. They offer:
- Free shipping on ALL orders
- Full Warranty on EVERY part they sell
- High Quality Parts (including OEM new)
- Large Selection of A/C compressors and other AC Parts
- Toll Free for Order and Support.
My opinion is pretty obvious.
The 2002 Bali bombing militants want an "execution without pain." Well, isn't that nice. How about the people they killed? Did they receive the came courtesy? The answer is NO! Personally I think they should die the death they were sentenced with, death by firing squad. The only revision I would like to make is that they start shooting at the toes and work their way up.

One of the things is replacing lights on the outside of the house. The light that is above our front door has never worked. I think that I am afraid because I don't know if it is the light or a major electrical job.
The other light is much easier but every time I say that, it ends up being a disaster. It is a light that currently works but is just UGLY. That light is above our kitchen door. A door that is on the side of the house and is rarely even opened.
I have a maxim lighting light picked out for the kitchen door but I hadn't found anything that I like for above the front door. That is until now. Now I don't have an excuse as to why I shouldn't tackle the job. Oh wait..... I guess I could still use the excuse that I don't know what I am getting into.....
Well he didn't really eat that much for dinner. When he said he was done I reminded him that he would not be allowed "snacks" any time soon.
About twenty minutes later I asked CAL to do something for me and he response, as it often is, was to complain. He finally did what I asked but was throwing a mini-fit while doing it. During that fit he broke the basket off the freezer door. Everything was falling all over the floor. The bag of popcorn opened up and what a mess. I was reminding him, while trying to fix the door and cleaning up the mess, that it was because of his fit that all this was happening. Oh he was also cleaning up the mess but there honestly was not a whole lot he could do.
After fixing the door I returned to the living room - we were planning on watching Water Horse. I hear CAL in the bathroom. The toilet flushes, it sounds funny. Then I hear the closet door open. I look at hubby and say "this doesn't sound good". Then CAL said "I need some assistance". I go running in, expecting the toilet to be running all over the floor. This would not be the first time for that little diddy. He is standing there with the plunger. I said "what".
He said "I flushed a banana peel, and it plugged the toilet." I said "Oh CAL, Sometimes **shaking head with disgust**. Apparently the little sneak wanted a banana (he was hungry after his fit throwing regarding the errand and breaking the freezer) so he took one from the kitchen, ATE IT IN THE BATHROOM - WHILE GOING PEE. Then didn't want me to notice the peel so he flushed it.
After a long conversation I gather that he eats in the bathroom when he doesn't want me to know he is eating. That will be the last time he does that. GROSS. I felt really bad that my son had to feel like he had to sneak a BANANA, but I don't think he was hungry I think he was bored.
I made him help me unplug the toilet, clean up the mess and promise to NEVER flush anything other than..... well you know.
We also had a long talk about being sneaky and what happens (usually bad things - accidents and trouble) when we are sneaky.

One of the big projects that I have to get working on is moving some rocks in the back yard. We have used a hand truck in past, but frankly I would feel much more comfortable if I had some steel toe shoes. Those rocks hurt!
I also have to pull some weeds, my never ending job. Thankfully I don't need the steel toed shoes for that.
One job that I don't have to do is mow the lawn. CAL got himself into some trouble and his punishment was to mow the entire lawn with the push mower. It is quite a job. It would take me about 2 1/2 to 3 hours when I did it. It took CAL much longer because he kept stopping to whine. He did a great job after he determined that he really had to complete the job.

Dale Leo Bishop was executed and his final words were words of support for Obama. WOW what a wonderful list of supports. Democrats should be very proud that their candidate has such a following.
Bishop was convicted of killing someone with a claw hammer. His defense was that he didn't deliver the fatal blow himself.
I agree that the US needs to UNITE and make sure that this "person" does NOT become the next POTUS.
Obama calls for the world to stand as one. Wasn't that Nicholas Carpathia's motto.
So far this summer we have only had two or three days that have been in the 90's. We've only been to beach twice, last year at this time we had been five times already. This past Friday was the most recent trip to the ocean. The water was soooo cold I could only go up to my waist. Again the effects of global warming are staggering. I know that last year we were able to be totally in the water at this point. The Northern Atlantic is COLD.
The Registrar General of Births, Deaths, and Marriages can actually reject names, and has "Fish and Chips, Yeah Detroit, Stallion, Twisty Poi -- a staple food in Polynesian cuisine -- and Sex Fruit.
Other names that have not been rejected are twin named Benson and Hedges -- after a brand of cigarettes; Violence; and Number 16 Bus Shelter. Oh the parents on the last one are real creative. Can you tell where that child was conceived. Clever.
I also think that these names that parents "create" that no one has any idea how to pronounce are not very nice either.

The little girl was taking practice swings before a t-ball practice and the little boy ran up to his sister (probably to give her a hug) and he was hit in the chest. CPR was attempted but.....
What a heartbreaking story. My prayers are with this poor family.
Honestly I am not going to link to the story, this little girl will have to live with this for the rest of her life and I certainly don't want to make matters worse. I don't like the fact that they used the boys name in the story.
A couple nights ago, two of our neighbors were robbed in the middle of the night. The lady directly across the street from us had her car broken into, and a house down the street had her garage and cars ransacked. Needless to say we have all been on edge. The garage is part of the house and so they were targeting houses/cars that were unlocked. That means they were trying doors. They probably came to all the doors on our house.
Now on to my story. We ship a lot via the postal service. On average I have five to nine packages going out during a normal day. Today I had five and one was a large one that didn't fit in the box. On the front of our mailbox I have a hook and I hang the packages in a plastic bag from that hook. We also had "regular" mail going out. The most important thing (other than the packages) was our health insurance premium, which is scheduled to be canceled at the end of the month.
When we have packages on the mailbox we usually leave both garage doors open. More for fresh air (and the feeling of enjoying the outside) than anything. I was coming back into the office from the garage when I heard the mailbox being shut. I looked out and saw a car in front of the mail box. This is not normal. Why is this person on my mailbox? I walked back into the garage and then out into the driveway and the car took off. That is when I noticed the packages missing. There was probably a value of $500 give or take. I ran to the box and looked inside to find all the regular mail gone.
I came running into the house and started yelling for my husband. He was "busy" and so I grabbed my car keys and jumped into the Jeep to chase after the person. As I was pulling out of my driveway I noticed a car on the back street. I thought I would head them off. When I got to the back street, I noticed our mailman was delivering to those houses. I asked if he had been to our house yet. He said no. I said well someone in a car just drove up grabbed the packages and my mail and took off. He was stumped and wanted me to describe the car. That is impossible for me. I knew it was silver that was it. I could not even tell you if it was a two door, four door, new, old, or whatever. I am not a detail person. I would be a horrible witness. This is a fact. It is me always has been, and probably always will be.
By this time the hubby was finished with his business and wondering what the heck was going on. I yelled to him that we had been robbed and explained what had happened. We talked for a few minutes about what was in the packages and how much money we were going to lose. I told him to go call the police because stealing our mail was a federal offense.
As we are standing there, the car comes down the road. CAL actually noticed more details about the car and started yelling "Mom that is the car". I ran toward the end of my driveway and started yelling at the car "what the heck are you doing in my mailbox". He flashed a badge, and then identified himself as a postal employee. He was out delivering a bag of mail that showed up late, noticed our packages, and was trying to help our mailman. He said that when he noticed our guy on the back street he went to give him the packages and that is when our mailman told him we thought we were robbed. He was coming back to let us know what had happened.
I was basically still yelling at the guy. I told him that the neighbors had been broken into and we were all on edge and he should not have done that. I don't understand what he was thinking. Our mailman still had to deliver our first class mail. What did he think we were going to think when he drove off with our packages.
My heart was racing. Hubby was upset that I went chasing after what I thought were robbers.
Let me tell you, I cannot afford to have $500 worth of packages stolen right now.
Broward Circuit Judge Marc Gold sentenced AAron Mohanlal to 43 years in jail for forcing a 13 -year-old student, of his, into having repeated sex. Call me stupid but this sounds like a little more serious than the title "molester". This sounds like RAPE. He is a child rapist NOT a molester.
The teacher (Mohanlal) would call in sick and pick the boy up from school, take him to his house, have sex with him all day long, and then return the boy to school. When they came to arrest the sicko he was in the process of destroying letters written to the victim threating him if he told.
43 years sounds like an appropriate sentence. Then the genesis Broward Circuit Judge Marc Gold granted the teacher a rare bond that allows him to remain free while his case is tried on appeal, a process that could take years.
CNN has discovered that Mohanlal lives only 15 miles from his victim.
You really have to read the article to believe this story. They also said that the teacher handed out fliers, (after his arrest) with the boy's picture to classmates, claiming the child had sex with animals.
UPATE: Mohanlal has been ordered back to jail on 8/1/2008. The family of his victim must be ecstatic that this monster will be going to jail after all. I am also sure that they have been put through hell and will believe it when they see it. Now for my question. Has the judge also been arrested? Will he be his cell mate. If the judge, Marc Gold, doesn't think he is a danger to children then he should have Mohanlal move into his home with his family.

You should be nice to your wife when she is stressed not grind her into the ground.
You should encourage your wife not squish her.
She was a wonderful woman and now she is just a bug because of you!
She was a proud woman when I left here two weeks ago, now she is very unhappy.
Of course not all of these things are true but it is interesting to see life through an eleven-year-old.

After a few minutes of Obama talking I said: "You know he only has 143 days of on the job training, that is like taking a gym teacher and in March of his second or third year of teaching promoting him to district superintendent." He loved it. He said it is EXACTLY like that.
Democrats can talk about change. They can talk that Obama is "fresh, young, and exciting". Frankly those are reasons NOT to elect him President. We need someone steady, qualified, and knowledgeable. None of those words can describe Obama.

Republicans have been saying this for months, while Democrats have been crying foul every time more skeletons come out of the Obama closet.
I have pointed out this exact thing numerous times on my blog regarding the CNN political ticker. To date they have run the following articles:
- Barack Obama (1997)
- Hillary Clinton (1780)
- John McCain (1107)
- Iowa (542)
- New Hampshire (483)
- Mitt Romney (479)
- South Carolina (422)
- Race to '08 (383)
- Mike Huckabee (339)
- John Edwards (329)
- Rudy Giuliani (327)
- President Bush (282)
If you don't have time to read the article here is a little snippet.
Obama’s trip is becoming a media extravaganza. All three network anchors will join him – broadcasting their nightly newscasts from stops along his route. Also along to record Obama’s every move, top political reporters from major newspapers and magazines. 200 journalists have asked to join Obama on the trip, although the campaign will only be able to accommodate about 20% of them.
Meanwhile, Republican John McCain has taken 3 foreign trips in the last 4 months, and not a single network anchor has gone on any of them. It’s causing some concern among Republicans that the news media aren’t giving balanced coverage.
Democrats are dancing in the street because they feel that have found McCain's Achilles heel. First of all I would like to state that this issue does not seem Presidential material. I would think we would want our President worrying about much more important issues. Even if McCain would agree, what power does the President have to make the change.
Second if Democrats were comparing apples to apples that might help their case. Viagra is a medicine prescribed to men and women for a medical condition. Birth control is just that, and it is not a MEDICAL condition. Now if men's condoms were covered and women's birth control not covered they might have an argument. I find it amazing that Viagra is covered, but that doesn't mean insurance companies are unfair to women. They are not prescribed for the same reason, or even remotely the same reason.
I find it humorous that Democrats are having to dig very deep and very wild to find an issue they think they can nail McCain on.

Mr. Meehan put up three billboards around Orlando that read "Please don't vote for a Democrat." and it has a picture of the WTC burning. His reason: former President Bill Clinton should have put a stop to Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda before 9/11. I could not agree with him more. A Democrat is responsible for allowing 9/11 to happen. Can you image what it is going to be like with a terrorist sympathizer in office.
Of course the Democrats are all up in arms because they don't want you to start thinking that 9/11 might be their fault.
I remember shortly after Clinton took office that he slashed our military defense. There was an air force base in Plattsburgh that was closed. Our military was totally frazzled when 9/11 hit. How could they not be frazzled. Clinton lead us to believe that we had no threat of terrorism on US soil. Terrorism happened overseas "not in our backyard".
If Mr. Meehen would make this into a bumper stick I would put it on my car in a heartbeat. I don't do dumper stickers but I would do this one.

We need to cut back, conserve, recycle, and start drilling for oil on our own property.
Democrats would love for us to believe that we don't have enough oil to support our needs. BULL.... we have no idea how much oil we have because the tree huggers will not let us find out.
Don't you think it is ironic that the same tree huggers that are against "crimes of nature" support "crimes against humanity", abortion or the right to choose. I guess we really know we are in trouble when the life of a tree becomes more important then human life.
God gave us the oil, minerals, and renewable resources for a reason. What the heck are we "saving" them for........ I know the Democrats answer "our children", really? I would think that if Democrats are truly worried about our children they would be against killing them.
A doctor at Children's said it is one of the worst cases of abuse they have ever seen. Children's is a HUGE hospital and it is hard to believe that this would be the worst case.
They believe this wonderful, caring mother to be in the Orlando area.
Police "alleged" that LeBlanc repeatedly kicked (or threw) the child down a flight of stairs, while other children were in the house, but none of them were harmed (thank goodness).
This is not the first time LeBlanc has been accused of domestic "issues".
UPDATE: They arrested Cara LeBlanc, 29, of Webster, New Hampshire in Cape Coral Florida.
LeBlanc reportedly dragged the 8 year-old to the top of a flight of stairs and pushed her down while her hands and feet were tied. She also beat the girl with a belt until it broke (for over 9 hours.)
I say and eye for an eye. Who wants to sign up to be the first to push her down a flight of stairs while her hands and feet are tied? I must insist that the stairs be made of a durable quality material like marble or steel.

143 Days, people. Exactly how does that qualify him to be president?
A similar law was recently passed in Boston Harbor. This just makes my skin crawl to think that all these boats and ships have been dumping in the harbor, or in Cape Cod's case the bay.
I understand that it is a big ocean but crap floats. I also understand that the waste should be "treated" but still. That is disgusting and makes me want to reconsider ever swimming in an ocean or lake again.
Is dumping your toilet on a big lake allowed?

Yet Congress still passed a bill that gave farmers millions of dollars NOT to grow food.
The next solution that Congress will come up with is to supply us all with diet pills to help with the food shortage.
I don't have the solution to all our problems but, honestly it just takes a little common sense to deal with some of them.
I didn't really sleep that well while they were gone and I stayed up late each night.
We both needed it and I don't think we will have any problem sleeping tonight.
Thankfully, she was able to purchase another one almost immediately. WB without a camera is like Obama without a racist preacher. Both she and Sherlock have a love for photography, and they are very talented.
I don't understand why people have to be such trash. I am glad that they didn't do any damage to her car. She also learned a very valuable lesson. LOCK YOUR CAR. Had the car been locked and they broke in her insurance would/should have covered the loss.
In my mind, that is like being a gym teacher for half a year and then being promoted to District Superintendent.
143 days. Think about it. How in the world could he have the knowledge and experience to lead this country. HE CANNOT!
The media has Obama winning the election. It is strange to me, however, because I have not met a person (in real life) who likes him. I see all these people on the news, in the paper, and online that LOVE Obama but I am beginning to wonder if they really exist.
I hope and pray that they do not. This country will cease to exist as we know it if Obama is elected. We will get "Change" alright but I don't think we can afford the type of "Change" that Obama will bring.
We looked at the movies that were playing and frankly nothing caught our eye. Finally we decided on lunch. CAL loves Friendly's. Not my favorite. The food is not that great but I love the ice cream. I tried to talk CAL out of it, and going somewhere else but then he said to me, "Mom, you do know that you can get Phentermine without a prescription"?
Ok wise guy we will go to Friendly's.
My son has become quite the smarty pants recently.
Needless to say if either of us had our way the trip probably would not happen. Something that was brought to my attention was the fact that my mother's husband is 70. I never thought about that before. His days of getting cheap life insurance have long since passed. This past winter my mom sat in our living room and told stories of how he falls asleep while driving. He would never even dare to consider letting someone else drive. I brought this subject up with my mom (after all, CAL would be in the car with them for 8 hours coming and going) and she became very upset with me. I suggested that CAL not spend the summer this year (I had several good excuses) and he started crying. My mom NEVER cries. What could I do. CAL loves his grandmother and was very upset that he was not going to spend the week.
In the end I caved, and on Saturday we drove almost to NY to met halfway (or somewhat half) and now CAL is walking around the "forests" where I grew up.

This story brings tears to my eyes every time I hear about it. I hope that the people responsible are already dead and serving a sentence of eternity in HELL!
This little boy has more courage in his pinkie than I have in my entire body. If I were burned that badly I would give up. Burns have to be the worst pain that a body can experience.
His family is unsure as to whether they will remain in the US permanently. Let me tell you he will NEVER receive this type of care and help in any other country.

I was about phone call number three when the following happened.
I make the call
ME: "Hey buddy, can I talk to your Dad?"
CAL: With is best computer voice "I am sorry but Mr. Lukie is out of the office right now. If you would like, you can leave your name and number after the tone: BEEP"
ME: Ok I can play this little game! "Hi my name is Lukie L*U*K*I*E (last name) and my phone number is 999-999-9999 I would ..
CAL: Again with a computer voice "I am sorry but your message is too long and too slow, please call back later, GOODBYE"
I hesitated because I thought for sure that he hung up on me. This is a HUGE issue in our family. CAL had his phone taken away during the school year for hanging up on me. I HATE to be hung up on, especially by an eleven-year-old.
I then started to laugh, it was much funnier than it appears here in this blog. He was really good. Jason tried the same thing when I called later, NOT nearly as funny.
The next "event" for CAL is the week long trip to his grandmothers. We didn't think he was going to be able to go this year because of the ridiculous cost of gas. This trip will cost us about $200+ in gas, before it is over. My Mom was real upset when I tried to cancel the trip so I had to rethink my stance. CAL really loves to see his cousins and this is the only time he spends with them.
Business has been OK the past 24 hours. If it would stay steady like this I might actually have some hope.

A family with four unruly children was booted off a Southwest flight. The mother, Wendy Slaughter, admits the kids were "a little bit out of control".
Let me tell you if she is going to admit that you know those kids were hellions.
I think the airline did the right thing in booting them. They have to think about the comfort and safety of ALL the passengers.
Then Southwest did something wrong. They refunded their money. That is WRONG. Why should the airline lose because the mother is incapable of disciplining her kids. All you had to do was take one look at this "family" and see that they have no class or respect for others. What a bunch of white trash. Oh but wait, one child his this, and one child has that.
If you are traveling with children that you cannot control (whether because of an issue or NOT) you run the risk of being booted. I would expect to be booted from a plane, the movies, a restaurant if my child is disruptive. That is the risk with children.
OK now they have received their 15 minutes of fame now they can go stand in the welfare line.

He cracks me up because he thinks the "kids" music today is garbage. He will become very upset when I point out the "garbage" he listens to. When it comes to music my husband is a HUGE hypocrite.
Anyway I have been listening to the currents hits music. I love it. Over the weekend they played this top 50 countdown, over and over, and over. I listened to everyone.
I am embarrassed to say that some of my favorite songs are:
Katy Perry "I kissed a girl" I HATE the lyrics but it has a beat and I can dance to it. Really I don't like the message that it gives our kids but I cannot stop singing to it.
Kid Rock "All Summer Long" Yes KID ROCK -
Flo Rida - In the Ayer
Rehab - "Sittin' at a Bar" - This song is actually quite funny. Again not something I want CAL listening to but I cannot stop singing to it. I appreciate that they try to cover the curse words.
Ting Tings - "Shut up and let me go" This song is so unique. It is stupid but.........
Believe it or not there is actually a remake/remix of "BEAT IT". Fall out Boy sings it and it sounds the same as Michael Jackson's. It is embarrassing when it comes on. Someone might actually think I am listening to MJ. I don't like it! This is NOT one of my favorites.
Natasha Bedingfield - "Pocket full of Sunshine".
Taylor Swift - "Picture to Burn"
What are some of your favorites (old or new)?
I have noticed a lot of remakes. It is kinda neat.
In the parade there was a float that poked fun of the town/city of Gloucester. I will let you read about it yourself.
If you don't want to get picked on for being pregnant, don't get pregnant.
It is a high ankle thing. I have been sitting and walking around normal, I didn't twist it or anything but about an hour ago I started feeling a slight discomfort.
Now it is more than discomfort.
What the heck did I do? I know that I am getting old. I just turned a year older in June. The good news is that I have decided to stop all future birthdays. I have had more than enough. I would like to donate the rest to someone who is 18 or 19 and cannot wait to turn 21.

Last year I bought the store brand from our local grocery store. I loved them while I was eating them, but they would tend to give me a yucky belly feeling after. I have tried all the brand names and they have never been perfect. They usually are not creamy enough or too creamy. There was never that happy medium.
Then this year I tried Hershey's Fudge-O's. They are perfect and I just cannot seem to get enough. Some women love shoes, clothes, CD's, DVD's, jewelry, or other material things. Me I just love my fudgesicles.
What is your vice? Considering all the other possibilities, I would say that I am a very boring person. To be perfectly honest, if it were not for my temper I would be "pert'near perfect".
A Wisconsin man fakes heart attacks to get out of paying restaurant and cab fares.
He will go to a restaurant and then fake a heart attack during his meal. I feel so sorry for the poor cabbies and businesses that he steals from. Restaurants are NOT getting rich and then when you have these clowns skipping out on the bill, the rest of us pay.
You also have to wonder who is paying the hospital bills when he visits. Not only is skipping on the bill he is running medical costs sky high for the rest of us.
A girl that my mother works with will go out to eat with her husband. They will call the manager and complain about something (anything) during the meal in order to get something for free. Most of the time they will either get a meal free or a dessert. They don't care just as long as they get something.
My hubby has suffered for years. At one point he was even taking injections to relieve the pain. He also remembers his dad taking aspirin by the handful.
I am pretty sure that WB suffers. She always seems to have a headache. Now CAL appears to be a victim. They have improved since school let out but he would get them so bad at school that his teacher would send him to the nurse. Fortunately Tylenol seems to take care of his. I don't think WB is so fortunate.
Now there maybe help for all three of them. British doctors have discovered that a nerve they remove during plastic surgery to improve wrinkles may also be linked to migraines.
Not everyone is convinced but I guess if you are going under the knife anyway, why not try it.
He was very excited, he was given a picture of Larry Bird and it was one of only 500 in "the whole world". Thank you Jason. I asked CAL if he wanted me to see how much we could get for it on eBay. He didn't think I was very funny. The person that gave CAL the picture showed him a Mickey Mantel card that was worth $35K.
I had to talk to them several times this morning regarding business. We really need to plan these trips better. Hubby's computer is so different than mine I cannot find anything on it. I searched for five minutes to find the back button. I hate his Toshiba computer.
I need to get the carpets cleaned. I would vacuum CAL's room with Sebo vacuums, if I had one.
I have a ton of work to do on ebay regarding the business. It has been very slow on ebay recently and I have to try to shake things up. I am hoping for a cheap listing day and have thirty or forty auctions ready to go.
I should get out and work in the back yard. I have a ton of weeds to pull. Unfortunately I know there is poison ivy/poison oak in them there weeds. I am not ready to get my second dose yet. I know that eventually I will have to but I am not sure this is the time.
I need to get the stock room cleaned up, it is quite a mess. I also have several boxes to get ready to be shipped on Monday.
I think I better get going instead of wasting time on this blog.
It is my personal opinion that people like this do not deserve to be "rescued". They are out risking their lives and the lives of the people trying to "save" them, for a thrill.
The trip was organized and dubbed "The Final Descent". After their canoes broke apart going through the dam gates the idiots were sucked into the underwater tunnel leading to the generator turbines. No one was wearing life vests. I mean why would they, they are going to take a canoe over a dam.
There are still five people missing. There should be a "no rescue" clause when the activity is a stupid "thrill" activity.

Protesters yell "war criminal" at President Bush. OH my, they "yelled" at him. Give me a break. I am sure that his wife yelled more insulting things to him at dinner last night.
Cindy Brady is hung over on the air. Apparently "miss brady" had too much wine the night before a talk radio show and had to excuse herself to go "throw-up". This made the headline news at CNN.
MO slaps BO. Yes Michelle Obama slaps her husband during their daughters soccer game. Why in the world is the media following this joker around like he is a saviour. The media has already determined him to be the next president. I don't know how you feel, but I want to cast my vote.
Honestly folks is this garbage really news? I expect better from CNN.
As it turns out the hubby said that CAL could not take his MP3 players on the trip. For what reason only hubby really knows. (he said something about him losing it? Sometimes I think hubby has lost it) He honestly has no idea how to pick his battles. He will get on CAL's back for the most silly things and then wonder why everything is an argument.
I love my husband but sometimes **shaking head with disgust**
They have arrived in WDC and should be heading toward TN as I type this. During their short layover in WDC I had to inform both hubby and CAL how to use a cell phone. It amazes me. The hubby will yell "hello, hello, hello" in rapid session. Every time I try to answer him he is already yelling "hello" again. CAL he just won't stop interrupting you when you are trying to talk. Now they are both acquiring me of being grumpy. If I heard "are you going to miss me" one more time? I starting answering "if you give me time, maybe"
I am glad we didn't hear about this earlier Obama might have tried to put a stop to this "American Flag" business.
Baseball is trying to raise funds and awareness for the Welcome Back Veterans program. They are trying to raise $100 million and provide 100,000 jobs for veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.
There will also be other items (besides the hats) available.
The hats will also be worn on September 11th.
I have to get CAL one of these hats.

Stay tuned for more details.

First we have sad: A 49 year-old woman falls out of her chair onto the floor, where she lies facedown and thrashes. She then goes still. No one came to her aid for over an hour. How horrible. Now for the shocking part, she was in an emergency room at a Brooklyn Hospital. This is a very cold world that we live in that she could lay there an hour and NO ONE even came to check on her.
Second we have strange: A 14 year-old boy has been arrested after he pushed an elderly (71 year-old) man (who was fishing with his grandson) off a dock in Falmouth. The little punk showed no remorse when police arrested him. The gentleman is lucky to be alive, because he is unable to swim. The little angels identity is being protected because he is a juvy. Wow his parents must be proud.
Third we have disturbing: A man has been arrested in Ohio for collecting and drinking boys urine. This is not his first offense for this crime. He apparently suffers from a "disorder". It makes him closer to his victims.
