My Name IS.............A Poem

This was written by a young Indian girl who was in jail for drug charges and was addicted to meth. She wrote this while in jail. As you will soon read, she fully grasped the horrors of the drug, as she tells in this simple, yet profound poem. She was released from jail, but true to her story, the drug owned her. They found her dead not long after, with the needle still in her armPlease keep praying for our Children, Teens, Young adults Understand, this thing is worse than any of us realize...

My Name: "Is Meth"

I destroy homes, I tear families apart,
take your children, and that's just the start.
I'm more costly than diamonds, more precious than gold,
The sorrow I bring is a sight to behold.

If you need me, remember I'm easily found,
I live all around you - in schools and in town I live
with the rich; I live with the poor, I live down the street, and
maybe next door.

I'm made in a lab, but not like you think,
I can be made under the kitchen sink.
In your child's closet, and even in the woods,
If this scares you to death, well it certainly should.

I have many names, but there's one you know best,
I'm sure you've heard of me, my name is crystal meth.
My power is awesome; try me you'll see,
But if you do, you may never break free.

Just try me once and I might let you go,
But try me twice, and I'll own your soul.
When I possess you, you'll steal and you'll lie,
You do what you have to -- just to get high.

The crimes you'll commit for my narcotic charms
Will be worth the pleasure you'll feel in your arms, your lungs yournose.
You'll lie to your mother; you'll steal from your dad,
When you see their tears, you should feel sad.

But you'll forget your morals and how you were raised,
I'll be your conscience, I'll teach you my ways.
I take kids from parents, and parents from kids,
I turn people from God, and separate friends.

I'll take everything from you, your looks and your pride, I'll be
with you always -- right by your side.
You'll give up everything - your family, your home,
Your friends, your money, then you'll be alone.

I'll take and take, till you have nothing more to give,
When I'm finished with you, you'll be lucky to live.
If you try me be warned - this is no game,
If given the chance, I'll drive you insane.

I'll ravish your body, I'll control your mind,
I'll own you completely, your soul will be mine.
The nightmares I'll give you while lying in bed,
The voices you'll hear, from inside your head.

The sweats, the shakes, the visions you'll see,
I want you to know, these are all gifts from me.
But then it's too late, and you'll know in your heart,
That you are mine, and we shall not part.

You'll regret that you tried me, they always do,
But you came to me, not I to you.
You knew this would happen, many times you were told,
But you challenged my power, and chose to be bold.

You could have said no, and just walked away,
If you could live that day over, now what would you say?
I'll be your master, you will be my slave,
I'll even go with you, when you go to your grave.

Now that you have met me, what will you do?
Will you try me or not?
Itt's all up to you.
I can bring you more misery than words can tell,

Come take my hand,
let me lead you to hell.
If you care enough,
please forward this profound poem and share the deadly outcome of this drug that is killing our young people & even our old.

Rose Gray-Finnell

Meth affects nerve endings throughout a user's body.
Many people feel a sensation of small bugs, known as "Meth Mites", moving right under their skin. They scratch, pick and dig the spots, trying to relieve the itching.

Three Monkeys


Three monkeys sat in a coconut tree
Discussing things as they are said to be
Said one to the others, "Now listen, you two,
There’s a rumor around that can’t be true
That man descended from our noble race
The very idea is a great disgrace."

"No monkey has ever deserted his wife
Starved her babies and ruined her life
And you’ve never known a mother monk
To leave her babies with others to bunk
Or pass from one on to another
Till they scarcely knew who is their mother."

"Here’s another thing a monkey won’t do
Go out at night and get in a stew
Or use a gun or club or knife
To take some other monkey’s life
Yes, man descended, the ornery cuss
But, brother, he didn’t descend from us."

things to all men." Menno Simons

Veterans May Face Health Care Cuts in 2008

With all the Veterans coming back with medical conditions this is a worrisome article. Some of these medical conditions will not be a chronic problem until they get into retirement age. It is already difficult for many of the Veterans I know at this time from the the 700's era to recieve care so when these Veterans of Iraq, Bosnia and all the other places the United States has sent armed forces become older it may be near impossible to receive the care they need.

Spring House Cleaning Mixtures

Housework won't kill you, but then again, why take the chance!
--Phyllis Diller

It is that time of year that many of us like to give our home a very through house cleaning. This involves a lot of work for many of us since it means moving furniture to clean everywhere. The house I live in is heated primarily by a wood stove so the all the walls should be cleaned but walls get dusty anyways. My technique is to do one room at a time. This helps to keep it from not becoming so overwhelming. Today I will do my bedroom from top to bottom including the closet and walkway. Anyway, below are some links for tips and some less toxic mixtures to help.

To remove stains from clothing, try soaking fabrics in water mixed with borax, lemon juice, hydrogen peroxide, washing soda, or white vinegar.

Fabric can be softened by adding one-quarter cup of baking soda to the wash cycle; A quarter cup of white vinegar will also soften fabric, as well as eliminate cling.

Polish furniture with a mixture of one teaspoon olive oil and one-half cup white vinegar, or Mix equal parts olive oil and lemon juice for a natural furniture polish. Just apply with a soft cloth and buff to a shine. You can also use this on wood paneling.

Baking soda and vinegar can clean a lot of things. I put about 1/2 cup in my dishwasher to clean and help dissolve the calcium deposit and then run it empty

For a stronger cleaner.

Make your own spray cleaner. Fill a spray bottle with 3 tablespoons ammonia, 1 tablespoon vinegar & the remainder with water.

Spots on stainless steel also can be removed with vinegar.

A few drops vanilla extract on a piece of cotton placed in the refrigerator will eliminate odors.

Wood Floors
  • Floor cleaner is a solution of 1/2 cup of white vinegar in 1 gallon of warm water. Damp mop with a mop squeezed nearly dry. It is safer to mist the mop with the cleaner than to apply to floor. Do a section at a time and throw an old towel on the floor and scoot back and forth with foot to dry and prevent streaks. Standing liquid from mopping, spills, and pet accidents can damage floors.
  • The greatest damage done to wood floors is from grit. Mats at doors are necessary to collect grit and it's important to keep these clean. I require everyone . except guest, to take off shoes when they come in. It really help to keep grit down.
  • Put a piece of waxed paper under your dust mop. Dirt will stick to the mop and the wax will shine your floors.

I like to scent my home here are some ideas. Since I have a wood stove I have a cast Iron teapot with water on top and usually put one of these inside.

• Simmer your own air freshener on the stove. Just use low heat and check them often, so they don't boil dry.

• Cut two lemons into quarters then cover with cold water.

• For a crisp effect, drop six sprigs of fresh mint into four cups of cold water.

• For a delicious Christmas-y smell, combine five cloves, two cinnamon sticks, and four cups of cider. This one just might make you yearn for gingerbread!


Spring Cleaned Bedroom

I know it is a ugly as sin room. I would like to put new drywall on instead of the bulging paneling. One of the last owners solution to cracking, bulging 90 year old stucco walls was to put the paneling over it. However, paneling can not hold back cracking, bulging 90 year old stucco walls. You cannot see the screws in the paneling trying to hold up everything in this picture. It also has the original floors with huge spaces filled with horse hair or something. I just pray that nothing comes alive. It is cleaned anyway and smells spring clean. Two rooms down and 10 more to Spring clean. Ugh!

U.S. Embassy in New Delhi has granted a visa to a prominent Indian scientist

Washington Post has an article stating the State Department has changed their stance on this matter although it seems to had come too late. This has been an on going problem with other scientists with certain specialties. I am wondering if they are making the threat base too large. We know there is still a thread out there and the latest Saudi attack is a perfect example, however, we do not want to limit visits of individuals only because they did a study 40 years ago.

"Tiger Woods." Of The Clerks

While reading an ABC news report of clerks fighting back robberies. This make me laugh:

After a robber claimed to have a gun, a Kansas City clerk used a golf club to force the suspect out of the store, prompting people to nickname him, "Tiger Woods."

By really this was a very dangerous thing because the robber could of had a weapon or might come back with one later for a pay back. You do not want to put yourself and others in danger.

Swearing Ad

Australia has come up with a new Ad for touristmst. They swear at you. Great thinking down under.

Army has charged seven paratrooper with engaging in sex acts in video shown on a Web site

Acording to the latest news repot "America's Guard of Honor," had some of their soilders with part time jobs as Porn Stars on a gay porn website. These alligations would be in volation of the UCMJ becasue this is not the same as the "Dont't ask, don't tell" policy. Sexual orientation is one thing but being in a gay porn site making money is another. I cannot commet on the content of the site myself since I have never seen it nor want to.

Here is another case of an Adult not taking responsability for their actions. She said that he unrelentingly pursued her. Gee, whiz just say no lady. Yes, young girls were given away for marriage in the past but there are laws now and it still took parents consent which was not obtained in her case.

Woes of H & R Block

H&R Block reports tax miscue, lower net, cuts view It seems H & R Block is having it s own tax goofs and woes. The company said a new software distribution system they started using in January had glitches that would be fixed for a day, then pop up again. It said the problems left some offices unable to process taxes.

"Walk into an office with your taxes, and walk out with an Instant Money Refund Anticipation loan check. Up to $9,999 based on your refund amount. Money in your hands fast". Opps, not today!

Not good for H & R Block earnings.

Keeping children safe online


The internet can be a source of contact with school mates and other friends and a wonderful source of knowledge but it can also a window for adults to prey on them so you need to be alert and aware in what they are doing. So I can always monitor my children online I do not allow free access to the internet and they must first have me sign on with a password. This allows me to worry less in what and where they are on the internet even though it sometimes restricts them to researching for homework assigements until I can log them on. Below are some helpful tips.

Some tips for keeping children safe online:


Keep the computer in a family room so parents can monitor what happens online.
Be alert if children receive gifts or letters in the mail or unusual phone calls.
Keep kids out of chat rooms or monitor their chats. Know whom they talk to.
See what Web sites children create online. Review what information and pictures are being released. MySpace discourages posting any personally identifiable information.
Take a peek at the computer screen occasionally.
Review what files are on the computer. If computers are too confusing, ask a friend, relative or co-worker to help.


Let children know not to give out personal information such as phone numbers or addresses.
Explain that people may not be who they claim to be. Some adults pretend to be kids.
Encourage children to discuss their favorite Web sites and talk about what happens on the Internet, including people they meet.


Children should not spend too much time on the Internet, especially late at night.
Set time limits on surfing and restrict most computer use for specific purposes, such as school work.
Consider installing software that monitors Internet surfing.

If Laurie, Linda, Elizabeth and Barbara go out for lunch, they will call each other Laurie, Linda, Elizabeth and Barbara.
If Mark, Chris, Eric and Tom go out, they will affectionately refer to each other as Fat Boy, Godzilla, Peanut-Head and Scrappy.

When the bill arrives, Mark, Chris, Eric and Tom will each throw in $20, even though it's only for $32.50. None of them will have anything smaller and none will actually admit they want change back. When the girls get their bill, out come the pocket calculators.

A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs. A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need but it's on sale.

A man has five items in his bathroom: a toothbrush, shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel from the Marriott. The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 337. And a man would not be able to identify most of these items.

A woman has the last word in any argument. Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

Women love cats. Men say they love cats, but when women aren't looking, men kick cats.

A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.
A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.

A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend. A successful woman is one who can find such a man.

A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.
A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change and she does.

A woman will dress up to go shopping, water the plants, empty the garbage, answer the phone, read a book, and get the mail.
A man will dress up for weddings and funerals.

Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed.
Women somehow deteriorate during the night.

Ah, children... A woman knows all about her children. She knows about dentist appointments and romances, best friends, favorite foods, secret fears and hopes and dreams. A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.

Any married man should forget his mistakes.
There's no use in two people remembering the same thing.

It is bad enough driving by one of the smelly places everyday and when they clean it out after the pigglets have gone to market it is a double Eeeeeeeeewwwwwwww!!!!!. They take a huge hose with a tractor and spread it all over the fields around the barn and it smells for days, and days, and days so I just can not begin thinking about it spreading and flooding all over a town. Oh, Yuck.

If it was this farm maybe I would not mine so much.
