BIZAAAARE ENTRY!! WHO DONE IT???

Standard
look
I feel like I have been attacked for the first time since using MSN SPACES.
NO ONE has access to my space, no one uses my computer either. BUT..
Someone or something has hacked into my space! I have since changed
my passwords and hoping this will help the situation. I came to check in
today and found an entry made yesterday that was NOT MINE.. and several
comments on it. Talk about bizaare and crazy. If it can happen to me …it can
happen to you. Just passing along the warning to others to keep an eye on things.
Maybe someone else’s entry got here by mistake.. I don’t know.. it was easy to
delete it and it never showed up in my summary. If it happens again..
more drastic measures will have to be done. The entry was NOT TITLED..(another odd
thing)
It was about the tragic death of a person at a walmart on Friday over a
computer. I made my entry way before that even occurred and knew about
it but DID NOT give my opinion of it.
The person who commented first was only initials  DCP and no space to
check. The second person I am checking with myself.  
HOW BIZAARE this is.. I hope none of you have this happen to you.
It is a very scary feeling.

LET IT SNOW….

I saw this picture and just loved it. It is so typical of what it looks
like here in the winter. I kept staring at it and was just sure the trees
were getting heavier with the white stuff. Kind of plays on the eyes
doesn’t it! Wink
Little did I know when I chose my background
that in less than 48 hours later we would be right in the middle of an
winter storm watch with more than 1/2 a foot forecast before Monday
morning. I am sure the school kids will love that as it ususally keeps
some schools from opening on time or at all.  The freeway was loaded
with cars. all of which probably are wishing to avoid the heavy bad
roads and getting home away from here!

I was so glad I decided to travel out and get some things Saturday
instead of waiting.The stores were jammed, you would never know
people are cutting back by the amount of cars and people everywhere.
I noticed that gas was 1.68 to 1.70 out of town
and 1.75 here. I also noticed that Milk was 3.25 at Wa****rt too!
WOW.. I shopped around and found it for 1.99! Smile
There were NO grapes  in that store at all, pears were on sale
as well as some apples for 1.00 a lb. Seems gas is cheap but food is getting higher. Sad
Hope your Saturday was good.. and your Sunday will be better.
For me I will be home watching out the window and calling to
"old man winter" to

IT REALLY IS SATURDAY…

Standard
I keep telling myself what day it is again.. It happens almost every
holiday.  It really is Saturday today. Smile 
IT’s WINTER too!!  We don’t have much snow to show for it,
but it is cold none the less. Quiet here this past few days.. many
places in our town were closed Friday also. The streets were
pretty empty as everyone headed for other towns. Sad how the
small towns are dying out. Sad
########################################################
Anyone see the OPRAH show where each audience member
gets $1,000 dollars to GIVE TO SOMEONE ELSE. Now some of them
had just regular ideas. but others gave them some thought.
They took the 1,000 seed money and really made it blossom into
many many dollars more. One person even put an ad in the local
paper asking people to nominate a person to give it to. The one
that absolutely got me was the older gentlemen, who was in
his late 60’s I believe.  He never knew how to read and out of
her money and time came a miracle.Red heart He now reads and reads to
children also. It was heart-warming to see. Pay it Forward really
does work. If I had a $1,000. to give I think I would have to
give it some thought before just handing it out.  Thinking
 
WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH YOUR $1,000.???
WOULD YOU KNOW RIGHT AWAY WHO TO GIVE IT TO??
COULD YOU MAKE IT MULTPLY?
##############################################################
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!!
   25   SHOPPING DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS!!

BLACK FRIDAY WORTH IT??

Standard
Do you really think Black Friday is worth it? Standing ,sitting or
waiting in 18 degree weather for whatever article you wish to buy.
My memory of that day is etched in my mind. It happened about
15 years ago. I wanted that comforter set so badly. I waited in line
at 6 AM in the cold for the "big discount". Many others huddled with me.
Drinking hot cocoa and hot coffee. One woman brought her whole
McD’s breakfast with pancakes and sausage! The rest of us drooled
over the smell! This was before the stores began opening at 4 AM.
The sun was up when we stood there at least! Sun The mad dash
at the doors was something to behold.. I was so glad I had scoped out
the best place to stand when they opened the doors or I would have
gotten crushed. I got the set and it was a great buy.. but I vowed
then NEVER To do that again. I have kept that VOW.

OH those squirrels had a feast for Thanksgiving!!
 
I have heard on TV and by e-mail that those gift cards for certain stores
will not be any good after the holidays. Some stores will be closing and or
going bankrupt. Those cards are not guaranteed. I won’t be buying them.
It seems that many I speak to this year are opting for the old fashioned
Christmas of giving what one makes, or giving the check or cold hard
cash. This works for everyone.. no one turns down MONEY,not even
the smallest child who knows that the paper money is worth more
than the coins.  They might not know by how much, but they know it.
###################################################################
As you can see by the photo we still have little or no snow
here and that suits me just fine. Temps are still hitting near 40 during the
day and that is great. Colder air is coming in December they say, so I
am enjoying every day of sunny skies and wamer than average temps.

Well we have celebrated this Thanksgiving, giving thanks that we are still
together and relatively well. Hope you all had a great day too!
YES.. it’s FRIDAYYYY. not SUNDAY OR MONDAY.. and will be a long weekend!! Wink
