Well, this weekend in Pomona CA.
is the start of the NHRA Drag Racing series...
"The Winter Nationals" to which is my favorite motorsport.
My ex got me into it when we started going out as teenagers, and after we were married, I talked him into building an Alcohol Fueled Funnycar, in our early 20's.
So, I've been into this for years, and would love to get back into it again!
It will be on ESPN 2 this weekend, in the evening hours, if anyone would like to check it out!
My favorite classes is the Nitro class, so its best if you have a 50" screen, and better yet, hook it up to a sound system, and crank it up, as they tear down the track! "Our neighbors must of loved us for that!"
Or better yet, go check out the racing schedule and go to a race near you!
You feel the ground shake, as the rumble goes right through you!
Its like nothing you ever experienced before, believe me!
You just might become a fan,
or it just might get you into racing a car!
Whats your favorite motorsport?
Well, yesterday was my day for watering the lawn, oh thats right!
Many of you don't need to do that this time of year...
But this dream I had, actually rather a nightmare was, that I thought I had forgotten to shut
my sprinkler off, "in my dream that is"
So, I guess maybe I had awaking while was still dreaming to find my property all flooded, and it was bad!
Like I was then sitting in the middle of a lake.
So, then, when I woke up for sure, I immediately went to check to make sure that my dream wasn't really true, and I had shut the sprinkler off, and what a relief that was!
Has anyone ever had a dream such as this, and it seemed so real!
I've had dreams in the past of losing my purse while I was out on a night on the town, and then trying to retrace my steps to find it!
Now thats a nightmare!
I just read an article about a hunter in Sedalia, Missouri, where he thought he killed this 240 pound buck, as he shot it a couple times!
But behold, the buck jumped up at him and speared his chest open!
So, the guy, Mr. Randy Goodman, 49, shot it a few more times, then realized the blood all over him!
Now, screw the guy, I couldn't give a damn about him!
But the poor animal was only trying to defend itself!
Maybe its only me feeling this way, but there is so much against the survival of an animal, they don't need us killing them off as a sport!
Go join the army if you want something worth while to shoot at!
I just get angry when I hear about stupid stories such as this!
We should look for ways to help with their survival, as many get hit by cars, and cold weather is a factor against them as well!
Don't hunters know animals feel pain too!
I wish we could stop or at least cut down on hunting licenses, as much killing isn't even known about!
This is only my view, as I will never own a fur coat, thats just me!
Lately, I've found myself so wrapped up with the everyday B.S. that I've lost focus on the real important things in life, that really matter!
With my cat getting killed by a wild animal yesterday, it made me realize that its the things that really matter in your life thats important, because you just don't know what tomorrow brings!
Maybe this was to wake me up, and rethink of what I should be focusing on such as family and friends, and to keep in touch with everyone more often, as we tend to take things for granted that tomorrow will be just like the day before.
I'm saddened by what happened to my cat, but what about the ones who lost loved ones to war, or sickness or accidents!
The ones who are now sick or injured, or need our help in some way!
I need to start showing what really matters and of whats really important in life, so sometimes it takes an incident such as my cat to realize what you've been neglecting as in showing the ones you love and care about how much you really do love them!
Has anyone gone outside this evening and taken a look at the evening sky?
Well, down here in Florida its very beautiful*
With the sight of Venus and Jupiter in the sky along with the moon...
Well, I'm enjoying it!
Well, this all happened over a year ago, when my cellphone died, so I went to the Verizon phone center to purchase a new phone.
The representative there suggested for me to combine all my accounts together in one bill.
OK, for one month it was that way, but this really screwed everything up!
The months following, everything went back the way it use to be with my accounts, but then everything was duplicated on the bills following!
So, I went through with Verizon to get that all cleared up, but for some reason to this day, the Verizon landline doesn't show a bill being paid, to which it was actually paid through my cellphone, well, actually, thats the month when the account was all combined to one bill.
BUT, ever since this incident, the landline people have been harrassing me to pay this bill, when it was paid last April.
I have had three way communication between both services, and even faxed them a copy of my bank statement to show proof it was paid.
Three times, the wireless division has made attempts to transfer the funds to the landline division, but everytime for some reason, it was denied!
This all has gone on since April of 2007 mind you!
So, now...Yesterday...Verizon has shut my home phone off! Just like that! And, Yes, I'm ready for a drink!
I Have since been in touch with both divisions to get this all cleared up!
Do I have patience of a saint, or am I just crazy to put up with all of this?
I was thinking of calling a tv station, to see if they could give me their input on this, and perhaps help me to get this all resolved!
I don't think Verizon wants to have this advertized to ruin their reputation!
I was actually planning to sue them for a million bucks if they ever went this far!
Can anyone recommend a good lawyer?
Well, right now I'm on hold with Verizon.
I could sure think of better things to do with my time!
Has anyone ever had the challenge of finding their way in the dark?
It could be anything, from finding the switchlight and hoping not to bump into something, or trying to find a place you haven't been before, as things do look quite different in the dark!
I have recently started a new job, and I start in the early hours of the morning, when most everything else is still asleep!
Well, I most certainly checked where this place was on a map, but in reality, it appears much different, as there's contruction that seems to confuse you, as I found I got to this place a different way each time!
I will say this!
The dark can be a very scary place as your unaware of the unknown!
Losing a pet that you've had for so many years can sure be hurtful!
I chose to have my cat put down today, as she was 17 years old and her frail body was starting to shut down!
Its difficult to make such a decision, but knew it was best for her.
I'm feeling a bit sad, but need to look at all those good years I had with her, as I found her as a kitten along with the rest of the litter, as the Mother cat was a stray I was feeding, and when the kittens came to age of being adoptable, I chose to find good homes for them, rather then have them live to be homeless.
The name I chose for my cat was Geyser being I was then moving up to Montana, I thought the name had fit her well, as that was her personality.
Just wondering if anyone else went through a difficult time, when having to decide whats best for the pet you love!
Its been over 8 years since I've seen snow, and I was just thinking how much I really do miss it!
I'm not sure if I miss driving in it, or shoveling the snow, or the cold, but sure do miss the beauty of it, when its untouched, and looks like a Winter wonderland!
I've lived in Montana, and boy it snowed everyday, so had to be sure the driveway was plowed/shoveled so it wouldn't freeze up!
I do remember the breath taking views I use to have looking at the snow covered mountains.
I'm starting to realize how much I miss that, as I heard it snowed there just the other day to which is when Winter starts over there...
I do also miss being snuggled by a fire place too!
How romantic that is!
Just add to it, with good soothing music, glass of wine, or hot chocolate...
Yep, I miss it all.....
Well, I was watching the game last night, and "GO RAYS"!
As I was eating my sandwich, I started to realize how much all the players spit!
All over the field, and in the dugout, how gross!
Spit here, spit there....
I would like to know, is this a macho thing?
Well, after a few bites, I then lost my appetite, and maybe I'll wait until the game is over next time to eat!
Hello, and I haven't been on here much lately, due to much going on in my life!
I'm planning a trip next week up to Long Island, New York, to see my brother who is ill with cancer.
I also want to show my son some sites as well while we are up there, as he has never been to New York. The city does terrify me, as I haven't been to the city much when I was younger.
I was telling my girlfriend that I was going up to New York, and she just couldn't believe I didn't have any plans for going into the city. Well, I might go if I had someone to go with, perhaps a family member, but if anyone had a good suggestion for me, as I'm not sure the next time I will be back up to New York again!
Well, I thought I was in love, still might be, but not sure at the moment?
I'm feeling a little sad, and confused about this one gentlemen.
I've been in touch with him for many months now!
Maybe some of you knew him, his MM name was blondelover, no longer on this site, but we've been keeping in touch for over six months now.
I've met him first on the MM chat, and as time went on, we got closer, and kept in touch!
He did tell me at that time when we first met on the MM chat, that he was also in touch with many other women as well, and so was I chatting with guys, which told me he was only being truthful with me!
As time went on, he got off the MM site, and told me I was the only woman he wanted in his life!
We seemed to be so close and falling into a relationship, as we talked about everything!
Some months go by, everything appears to be great, and he's working out a schedule to plan and meet me...
He told me he bought me a car, which is sitting in storage, and also an engagement ring which he put a deposit on, and has even talked about marriage!
To this day, I have not yet met him, and he never sent me a picture of himself, which sounds very strange I know!
I don't have a clue why he hasn't sent me a picture yet, have asked him about it, but he's also been trying to plan a flight to come down to meet me in a few days, and yet that seems to keep getting moved up!
I do have a good description of what he looks like, and that is if he's telling me the truth, but all along he has been promising me so much, and has never asked me for money!
This guy could very well be someone who just loves to break someones heart, and gets a thrill in doing so!
I've asked him about that, along with everything else, because if thats the case, I need to move on! He told me he's been truthful with everything, and I never caught him in a lie.
It sure does sound like I need to move on, and I could sure use some comforting to cheer me up, because I don't see anything happening with this guy, and I've written him E-mails telling him all I've felt about our relationship, if thats what you want to call it!
I do feel angry and betrayed, being I put all my time and effort into a relationship that I have no idea of the outcome, or maybe now I do, but he has wasted many months of my time and in that time, I could of met a wonderful guy who would love and respect me!
If anyone else has been in touch with him in the past, or if you can cheer me up some, I would sure appreciate your input...
Drag Racing is my favorite motorsport, and as I was watching the qualifying sessions on ESPN 2 last night, the announcer came on to say there was a horrific crash at Englishtown Raceway in New Jersey, with Scott Kalitta's Funny Car, and he was taken to the hospital, to then pronounced dead a while later from multiple injuries. He was only 46 years old! One thing you can say, is he died doing what he loved to do!
I'm still in shock about this even happening as I love the sport, and know all the drivers. If your interested in learning more about this story, or just about Drag Racing, you can look up Kalitta Racing, or NHRA Drag Racing. Or better yet, go to an NHRA Drag Racing event, and see for yourself!
Wouldn't that be great, if we could actually go shopping and buy a man!
You can try them on for a nice fit, pick your favorite color, and size and try them out for a while, and you can always return them if you decide maybe he wasn't right for you after all...
The Summer months are fast approaching, and already its getting quite "HOT" here in Florida.
So, any suggestions on how to stay cool while outside, in the heat of the day?
Now, I want some thought put into this, and would like some interesting ideas...
Wish all of you a great Summer, and hope you get to do what you want! Jan*
Hello, and don't know if this is too silly to ask or not, but if we just happen to be hanging out with our favorite animal friend, and we just happen to do something stupid in front of them, do you think they're capable of understanding what happened, and react to it? Not that I have done anything lately, but was hanging out on my front porch with my dog, and this thought just happened to occur to me! So, thought I'd ask MM to see what answers I would get!
So, any inputs? I guess I'll find out! Jan*
