I have a fear. It is of dying. And not by getting old.
It is by something hit by a bus or dying by botulism.

And I can't just think I might die. I have to play out the whole frigging scene in my head!!!

Last night I made spaghetti sauce. Home made with home canned tomatoes from our garden.

"Don't use those." said the husband. "They might have botulism and we could die!!!"

Of course I told him they do not have it. There are no mold spots, acid spots in the lid, or broken seals. We will be fine.

Mind you that I have NO real idea what botulism is. So I come to work this morning and get online. I find out that it is a SERIOUSLY nasty thing. It causes you to loose TOTAL muscle control. So basically you drool, pee yourself, have no reflexes and then YOU DIE.

I read this and the 1st symptom is to feel light headed. So of course I start to get light headed. Down right dizzy. I had to tell myself to KNOCK IT OFF before I collapsed on the floor drooling.

Why do I do that? It is like when I come home from work. I drive on the top of the bridge. I can see myself going over EVERY DAY. When will my brain shut down?????

Just wondering.

Oh and it takes 18 to 36 hours for the botulism to show up. So if I don't write again...I'm DEAD.

Have a nice day.

Just so you know....

This is SO strange.
I am talking to a customer arranging shipment of something they bought from me on eBay.
They feel the need to tell me they are transgender. I mean in like the second sentence of our conversation.
So they repeat it.
I began to laugh so hard I started crying. Then informed them I DON"T CARE!! Told them I didn't need to know that to complete the transaction.

Now I'm wondering if I need to do that. Hi my name is Colleen. I'm straight and married.

Just wondering!

Okay folks. I don't want it longer, to be happier, and I sure as hell don't want it to last all night. I'm an old woman who (Most nights) needs her sleep!

You know these ads are done by men. We women have no issue with size. We really don't!!! So why do you???? Yes I'm talking to you men.

From what my friend Molly tells me, all men do it!! I just don't understand what your problem is. Are there SO many in the locker room in HS that are HUGER (it is a word now) than yours? Don't you realize you aren't done growing in HS?????? Seriously. It will get bigger. SO GET OVER IT!!!

Okay...are there such a thing as electronic NOT made in China?
Just looked at my cell phone. Made in Korea.

Now the pres has decided that if a company receives bail out money, they have one stipulation...they MUST use USA products and or services. Boy is Canada Pissed!! I can understand that but we have to FINALLY look out for ourselves. I wonder how long we can go on support other countries and NOT ourselves?

We have a local food bank. They are STRUGGLING badly. But our community has raised 150K for United Way. If we were giving that money to the food bank, we could feed the people in OUR community. What does United Way really support? Have you ever received a dime from them? I've heard they support Campfire & Boy Scouts. But HOW? I was a campfire girl. And We earned our own money, paid our own way and still had to go to a United Way dinner to THANK people for supporting us. Did they? Where was the money?? We never saw any of it.

Wow that went of topic didn't it?

Done for now. Back to working hard at hardly working!

1st one

Well....the purpose of this blog is for me to watch my China purchases.

Nothing special really. But I no longer want to buy from them.

I find it bad enough that they are poisoning their own children, now they have begun poisoning ours!! So I will NO LONGER SUPPORT THEM!!!

Our first serious problem came in trying to remodel our bathroom. After removing six layers of wallpaper, three or four layers of paint, and lots of trash bags of ceiling tiles, oh and lest I forget....the florescent light fixture. Not anything nice mind you. We are talking like the kind you find in a grade school cafeteria. So now we need new light fixtures. And the faucet leaks so we need a new one of those too.

We start at Walmart. It is the closest to us. They only have things made in China. And the selection sucks!!!

Off to Home Depot. It is SO hard to believe that a store that large has NOTHING MADE ANYWHERE BUT CHINA!!! How do we do this? Well we are wimps!! We bought two lights on clearance and a faucet. We have decided to try and be better. We can't support them!!!

So now it is on to lights on eBay or things from the Reclamation Center. At least if we buy used, we aren't giving them any other money!!

I've actually begun to check the tags on my clothes and ANYTHING I buy now. Thank God we can get our food locally.

Okay....enough blah blah blah for today.

I know it isn't fancy but t is my 1st blog EVER!!!
