Talking with my nephew's wife, she's going back to work after maternity leave April 6th, unfortunately she's the one that makes more $ and has the better health benefits. She was telling me about the daycare the are putting Michael in and she was saying they finger paint with them at 2 months old. WHAT??? do they use baby food? no finger paint...ummmmm babies are constantly sucking on their fingers, do I want my kid at 2 months old who has NO IDEA what is going on sucking paint off his fingers? I don't care that they washed his hands after painting. I think this has to be one of the most stupid things I've EVER heard
That makes sense - the only infant day care I"ve been exposed to doesn't sort the infants by age that closely. The very young babies are mixed with other older infants too ( still infants however - just beyond the sleeping all the time stage ) the rooms are pretty busy.
gotta love the govrnmnt...letter from irs, needing some more of my biz info and then enclosed with the letter "cut out and return the voucher at the bottom of this page if you are making a payment, even if you also have an inquiry"
Uh, you mean just return the voucher with the form?
My sis got a ..."sorry, can't send your refund, someone else already filed under your name...". No, it wasn't PAID, we knew it for what it was. ---but still was filed and so we can't send you refund for 6 months to a year..."
File a police report. Call your credit company. Fill out these forms. Notify at least major credit agency.
PS. --- if she actually OWED - then that payment would have to be sent immediately!
The SS number was only given once in February - the month the false filing was done ----at a hospital. Her hubby swallowed a toothpick left in a sandwich and it got 'stuck' -- this caused pains in the A## that came in more than one form!
Yes. A year ago there was another hospital leak in Fort Lauderdale. Hospitals still ask for SS # even tho the account number is changed along the way. A real pain and the victim has to do all the work. In ft laud the health system 'bought' identity theft ins for all the folks involved but just for a year. ...that was it.
there's a site I liked on fb called Hometalk, people are always posting plants for id, today it was a pic of a shrub, lady said it affected her husband arm when he brushed up against it...someone suggested it was purslane ??????????????????????WHAT? DUH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You do look very young, Debi...I don't feel so young today after babysitting for the 3 of them last night...we played outside til dusk...when the great horned owl started hooting, we went in...Grant was very resistant, but the coyotes come close there, so I coaxed him in, by doing all the owl calls I know! He thought it was a riot, then the girls started hooting...
hee hee...my hubby too, almost all t-shirts though...navy and black, a couple of white and grey, maybe 3 lighter blue and 3 red oh and 1 tan and 1 green...it's ridiculous...I keep trying to talk him into buying some more colorful shirts
I have everything organized in the closet by color so it's really noticeable
Postal service often in the news --money woes, cutting services and staff, etc., etc.
Today, the post office refused a box I was attemptng to mail. My neice's birthday box filled with soap and powder, a pretty jeweled note pad, a gardening hat and gloves. Why?...the BOX thst I recycled ( recycling is good correct? ) contained the word WINE printed on it. Refused? Find a new box or cover up the words. Sigh...
If we asked if the word BOMB would be allowed ---- I bet they would have alerted authorities.
So crazy. We could have signed a statement saying no wine/no alcohol. At the airport the clerks ask if anybody asked you to carry anything or if the articles you are checking in were given to you by anyone. Your word is ok then.
So if I wanted to buy my brother wine for his birthday ---could I not do that and mail it? Is it a USPS thing and ok via Fed Ex and UPS ---- or is it a no no anywhere because I have never been asked if alcohol were being shipped. I would like to know I am about to break the law if that is the case.
Today the box is about to be shipped with duct tape covering up all the offensive words ---- next time I take a Costco box to carry food home, I will be sure it is OK for mailing should I have a need to recycle.
Why build them up knowing most are just "getting out" of the production line in HS and will not be prepared for the real world.
I was an older student in college in the late 60's. Students in college were working hard to beat the system. The professors knew it.
One said "We dont care how you spend your time,we offer all the instruction and research facilities you pay for.Just give us your money and you decide how you want to waste it"
One of the 'things' that will be obsolete along with snail mail...and yellow pages...and home phones (land lines) and CD, DVD, BLUERAY (now that we have ' cloud' I guess) glovebox roadmaps, cursive (hunless you are getting a degree that requires you to read historical documents) and passwords, IS (drumroll here...)
TOILET PAPER !
Now I did see a toilet SEAT that after the flush...spun around on a track of some sort (hidden under the seat rim) and a 'squeegie/gripper arm with water sray washed and dried it ( "it" being the seat of the toilet not a human seat! )
I called Agway. He said that alot of people are having a hard time this year. Most with lack of lime. He said up here you cant over lime a garden.
He told me to get a soil test kit. Go to homedepot and get a Burpee or Ferry Morse soil kit. 3.25 whop te do.
I have 0% Nitrogen. From the freaking sawdust !!!!! I was told it was going to happen last year but it did not. Now I have to go and scratch in time release pellets around every stinking plant! If I dont they are going to be gone.
I thought that the issue with decomposing wood chips and nitrogen happened ONLY if they were mixed INTO the soil. No wonder I get sheep sorrel in the beds I built out of wood chips! Now I need a truck load of composted manure!
You guys/gals saw what I produced last year. I have never had a problem till NOW. My ding dong husband said that this sawdust would decompose. Yes it even started last year on the top where I was watering. The saw dust was turning black.
Now that I think of it - Jim rototilled the garden 2 times last fall. Then this spring and put in cow poop. He should of loaded the garden up with poop last year.
What to make good compost you need what? Green, Brown and Hot. Right?
I will win this battle as if I loose this garden I will NEVER plant again. oh oh - Jen will be holding onto this one :-)
Full moon must be affecting the driving skills of people today
saw a guy was stopped at a red traffic light then pull out and make a left on red
then in the town north of us(they'll give their mom a ticket on mother's day) tailgating me( I was doing the posted 30 mph which turns to 25mph by the bank, so I pulled over and let her fly by...right by a cop parked in front of the bank...well he must have been at the stinking atm cause he didn't go after her
I have found myself almost doing that, then realize that I can't make a left. I have also made a left instead of a jug handle turn. The intersection had changed since the last time I had been there and didn't realize it. Of course there was a patrolman who noticed my mistake and pulled me over. Thankfully he only gave me a warning. I'm sure he noticed the van was full with hubby and kids and knew I would never hear the end of it. Heehee
Jug handle turn. In order to make a left you stay in the right lane, go through the light and make a right hand turn in a circle back to the same light. My dad always called them a jug handle turn. Is there another name for it? Maybe it's a regional thing.
Wow - was shocked to hear my 13 yr old say a girl in his class, whose family we know well, is dating! WAY too young. Really shocked because they are not the type of parents I would expect it from. Yikes.
Mom: Dr. Dentist -- are you SURE you want to pull my 8 year old son's teeth in your office with just the needle numbing type anesthetic? Shouldn't he be sleeping or at least drowsy? My mom says he would do better at an oral surgeon and in a more controlled environment.
Dr. Dentist: No worries mom. I do this all the time. Routine procedure. Baby teeth. Got to make room for those teeth coming up behind. He will do fine. No need for the oral surgeon.
Mom: But he is eight. Those teeth aren't loose. If there is a problem, he will fear the dentist forevermore and he may struggle during the procedure. THERE WILL BE BLOOD AND HE WILL BE AWAKE! My mother has been calling me and is feeling strongly about the oral surgeon. She will pay if insurance denies.
Dr. Dentist: No worries. He will do fine. You tell your mother we have it all under control. Routine.
later that evening...
Mom: Mom, the dentist says he can do it. We trust him and you are worrying for nothing. We have made our decision. No, we won't reconsider. Mom, you raised your kids and now it is our turn. I will call you after the procedure is over. We promised dear grandson a new video game if he is brave. We will take him for it after the dentist. It is a routine procedure.
Fast Foward a few days...
Mom: MOM! Mommy, it's me. I am in the oral surgeon's waiting room with dear hubby and newborn baby! Mom! Dr. Dentist pulled one tooth but the other wouldn't come out mom! He had to stop and we rushed dear grandson over here. The oral surgeon has him back in surgery now! I will call you tonight mom to let you know how he is. Don't worry mom -- it is all under control.
My son got rear ended the other day while at a red light...and off duty policeman with wife and child...got out of his car very apologetically...son said "what the heck happened" cop said..."I was reaching for my phone"
Jen - this kid had PERFECT first set teeth. Picture book - top and bottom. But...the teeth were tight and no spaces between. Great for second teeth but dentist said not so great for first teeth which should have spaces. Sure enough --- as the second came in the first did not fall out. It was like he was growing a second row of teeth on the bottom. The two pulled -- not the four side by side in the bottom front ---but the the right and left that flank those four (Like where the vampire's bottom fangs go) BEHIND those teeth - literally in the floor of the mouth it seems are the 2nd set coming up. The dentist said that if those baby teeth didn't fall soon --the second set likely would not move forward. The first two never got loose and the second set were halfway up. So out they came -- sort of -- as you have read.
I guess i will give a call tonight - hard to from work. I saw the photos of the aftermath in the mouth - eeech!
8 is awfully young - just the needle is scary but the entire extraction with nothing to take the edge off mentally
Ice cream - done (but i think it is water based ice)
dentist --- well -----
and the flowers -- I'd gladly trade those for a little more 'paying attention to what mamma says ---she's been there' from the kids! I think they think I run around saying 'the sky is falling!! the sky is falling!'
Fields down the road from us, usually has soybeans but I guess it was cover crops(very short looked like mini wheat, I know nothing about field crops) that they were cutting down, there was a bunch of Hisitic Jews in full garb from NY and PA in there today walking thru the fields and watching the combine do it's work, we've been here almost 8 years and never saw that before
Luke, my 6 yr old grandy had some pecan pie the other day for the first time. He said he really liked it 'cept for the nuts, but he really liked the appley stuff. No more pecan pie for him if he's gonna pick off the nuts. I am sure his dad will eat his share.
jen - is it crust - less or is the bakery making a special rice crust?
we have a wonderful - wonderful restaurant called glasshalffull and majority of menu is gluten free - wow. Also a lady at farmers market with child who has celiac dz AND a rice allergy AND dairy allergy (WOW THAT IS HARD) makes GF foods and sells and has branched out to complete dinners with a preorder - you just pick up on the farmers market day.
if you have a Fresh Market supermarket - you will be pleased to see how many GF items are on the shelves ---downside... mixed in and no one section.
we had a restaurant owner get charged with something (endangerment or similar ) for advertising GF when not meeting the standards.
I saw a large gal pulling a wee toddler along the floor at walmart. She was screaming bloody murder (the toddler). Mom was ~ 4 1/2 feet tall and about as wide. She had on a halter top and a mini skirt that barely covered the hinterlands. No kidding! A tattoo snaked up the leg only to disappear also into the land of untold delights. The Kid threw herself on ground and mom bent completely from the waist and ...and ...and ...well let's say her butt had just about consumed that scrap of a thong. Hubby (I assume) was clearly bedazzled by his woman. There are fashions that for sure make me go hmmmmmm
I was at the convienience store sitting in the car. Along comes 2 guys. 1 in his 40's and a teen 16 or so. The teen was walking a puppy, I say around 8 weeks old. It was the hot humid spell. Next I see him pulling the puppy as the puppy went down on the ground and he just kept pulling his body on the sidewalk. Next I see him pull the puppy up by the neck on the leash.
I almost got out and said how would you like to be hung by a rope on your neck, like that. Bit my tounge.
I would have called 911 too. Did it a few years ago when I saw a guy hitting a kid in a car, reported the licence plate #...hope something came of it...made me sick to my stomach but there was not much else I could do, I was by myself and was afraid to approach him, probably would have hit me too or hit the child more.
Reading the paper today : GSK (glaxo, smith, kline) is fined 3 BILLION dollars. Hiding safety info, introducing drugs for purposes not approve, etc. . Also several years of penalties imposed involving how the company pays its agents and leadership...
I dont belive in god but I have my hands out BEGGING - Find mistakes let me know as it will go off tomorrow.

Well there is not many jobs where I live. I guess my next attempt is going to go to home care. I have a friend that goes to an older ladies house everyday and is going to put my name in the pool or whatever. Not many hours, taking care of older people that needs some help. You know the ones that forget or what ever.
At this point I need a job. Put a sign over my head, dress up and head to Boston? Oh did I say the sign will say Antique? I am Kidding!
Hilarious scene while we are enjoying our gelato in Grand Central today. This old guy with really long gray hair was dozing off and leaning WAY over sideways from his chair and would just catch himself and get vertical, only to start over again. Never fell!
1st - I invented a hairy mouse like thing that had pourpine quills. It would kill you and they multiplied - FAST
2nd - was smuggling a black cat in a luggage piece. I thouched the canvans and the cat ripped threw it. Clawed and bit me.
3rd - Mr G. was chasing a tractor trailer truck, trying to bite the front wheel. Next I know he was standing up, on the running board looking at the driver. The driver took a hammer and hit him on the head and killed him. I came unglued and woke up.
When you thought you saw it all, How would you like this light? I can see what kind of day this will be.
I got thinking about this. They cant be actual bone or at least in the head. I would say infection would errupt. Not all people will take to the metal they use for teeth implants or a rod they put in an arm or leg etc. What is that titanium???
could be stainless steel.
I think once the hole has healed it is no different than slipping an earring through the hole and so probably cn take any metal as long as not allergic. I bet nickel is avoided.
In this modification, small pieces of Teflon or silicone are inserted beneath the skin of the forehead, giving the appearance of small horns. These can be gradually replaced with larger and larger pieces as the skin stretches, creating larger horns.
The first set of horn implants were done by Steve Haworth on The Enigma. Steve Haworth invented this type of modification. He currently uses silicone for his horn implants.
Ah UNDER the skin.
I thought the 'metal' was coming through the skin and what was showing was shiny horns.
Silicone makes sense. Wonder if the prosthetic is numbered. Silicone breasts have helped solve a lot of identity issues for crime detectives.
Luv, you gave me a chuckle. First time I "saw" those huge holes in earlobe...I thought I was looking at a huge mirrored earring in the guys ear. It was at a supermarket and the stuff in front and the stuff behind him in the aisle...well looked the same. Stuff on supermarket shelves in same aisle looks generic. . So, I thought I was looking at a reflection of the grocery items on the shelves. My eyes aren't that good anyway. ;0( When I got close I saw it was this HUGE hole kept open by a ring...sort of like a grommet. I was actually looking THROUGH his ear at the shelf items behind him! That is when I knew I was a behind the times old fart!
I went to craigslist and it said Warehouse Position. Send work history. I did and then in an hour I got a phone call. The woman said in 1-1/2 hours I would get a call from her boss. I was hired in 2 hours after submitting my work history I was hired.
I start tomorrow. I dont know what the heck I am going to do! Dont matter, I have a job!
Am I going to stay and hack it out? Yes till I get a better JOB. I will have a job to go on as a good emp!
Nope - I am not a pansy butt, BUT, I am not going to unload a tractor trailer truck with 5 palates of cases of paper. The other 13 palates no problem. Not only to move them once but 4 times. I or 2 boxes weighed over 80 freaking pounds!!
I was the only woman and the men even said this is not for you. They said I was a good worker and thank you. It was all Staples products getting distributed. From furniture to pencil to chalk boards.
Looking for a job again.
Heres my arms after 6 hours. The right one took the beating worse.
