TUESDAY'S QUESTION OF THE DAY

OK, politics suck, you name it they've done it. Apparently some collector has paid 1.5 million for the FBI's tape of Marylyn Monroe having sex. The US is near the top of the charts for executions. Good people are still dying in Iraq and there's still no end in sight. Global Warming fear is gripping the world; it looks as if you'll be drinking your scotch and soda neat without ice shortly. China's human rights violations compile one on top of another. Our country is being infiltrated with illegal aliens who want nothing better than to destroy our culture that we are so proud of. We as a country are giving 200 million in food aid to foreign countries because of the skyrocketing price of foods while people here in our borders go hungry. Yes, turn on the news, read the blogs and its more bad news on top of more bad news and I'm close to saying do you remember the good ole days and that leads to the QOD:

What positive things do you see, that are better now than when you were a kid?

AHHH........dang..i'm so out of the loop.....you got two choices here I man....you can follow admins rules of the road....place them on ignore.....and forget they exist....oh everyonce inawhile you'll see someone mention their name...and just call it your idiot ex. sighting of the day and go about your biz....

if it then gets unnavoidable....go to admin..let them earn their 25 cents and say..look...i've followed your 2 bit rules and it's still annoying and have them remedy the problem...


anything else you do.....you stand to fall under the wrath of admin...you've got to make that choice yourself...sometimes it's a price your willing to pay..other times it's not...i can't speak for you

now....yeah..if i was odog..i would have popped you a few times already...the blog is not his life...answering your challenges is not his first second thrid or anywhere near an important matter.....again...not my deal to tell you how you deal with others..only how we deal with each other :-)

but....even when i popped you...i didn't mass email to see who else...to each their own....personally...i love tequilla.....hate rum...love a drink..hate to be around drunksnk...but if that doesn't bother you..godspeed and that's why i have my own corner of the world and they have theirs

Thanks for your support Ric.....and I know who started this campaign against me....Thanks Emmy! :)

Its Odog here is where Emmy admits it:

262. EmmyRose 11:35 PM GMT on April 15, 2008

He claims I am starting a banning campaign against him - nothing can be farther from the truth. It was ODOG himself who said he would if he kept it up - not ME


So emmy admitts Odog is trying to get me banned????? Why would he do that....beacsue I debate the issues abouut civil rights better than a "civil rights" attorney???

I think its kind of shallow that a person who claims to defend "civil rights" is trying to silance a person standing up for his own "civil rights"

Double standerd

I just want to thank everyone for all the emails I have gotten in such a short period about my "obsessive stalker".

I have decided to take the high ground and not call this person out (even though many of you guessed the right person).

This person seems to be a real trouble maker, I am very suprised that this person who comes across at first very nice and sweet is such an angry bitter person who has had problems with many of you on these blogs.

I all of a sudden dont feel so special.....knowing that im just my "stalkers" flavor of the week :/

and do not tell me to do it myself...I just do not have the time to spend doing this...I have way too many other cleaning or yard work or pool cleaning or grandkids, babysitting or work, or whatever.... House cleaning is just way very far low on my priority lists of things to do...

I did a great job cleaning my fridge yesterday! lol

ROFLMAO!!!!

YOU ALL ARE SO FUNNY!

RIC, i use to have those same cleaning people but their names were Greg, Betsey and Ellen..and they were terrible... I kept thinking the Health Dept would close us down for sure! LOL Finally they all moved into their own houses and guess what...they keep their own houses very much neater and cleaner than they kept their rooms growing up!!!


Oh well, "The Maids" got here around 5:30. The three of them (who do not speak English only one of the 3 can do a little English) I explained that it is really difficult to pay $165 for 1 1/2 hrs of cleaning and the cleaning was not realy very good. I showed them all the dirt and dust left from last time, etc. they agreed (this was a new group..you never know who you will get with The Maids or "Merry Maids"..and forget about those tv commericals! ROFL!!!...

anyway, this time they 3 cleaned for 1 1/4 hour...I gave them $165 counting their $15 tip...and I hope this other source works out soon.. or I will have to do this again in mid May...



Do any of the rest of you have a hard time getting a decent reasonable priced cleaning service????

Now who would want to get rid of IE???:))



LMAO Bob.....:) I understand why I would be a target......but to cry to others trying to rally up support to bann someone because you cant muster up an intellegent retort to the things one disagrees with is childish.

I guess it just proves that when some people dont like you......you must be doing something right :)

Bob I know we disagree on a lot of things but I like you, your entitled to you opinions as I am to mine. I f we disagree we debate the facts at the end of the day nothing really changes....its all good fun:)

But when some wacko wants to go on some stalking obsessive " i want IE banned and gone its my lifes work".....its a little freaky.

Im not used to getting all this attention......to be the focus of a persons life....I really need to sit back and put this into focus.

I guess I have truly been accepted into WU......I have a stalker!!!!! WHOO HOO!!! :)

Hey Ric.....quick question bud.

What is an email campaign and why would someone who has a so-so past with starting problems on these blogs want to start a campaign to get me banned?

The person in question is not a regualr QoDer, but has been surrounded by controversy from what I have gathered.

Is this person just a trouble maker, that somehow seeks attention this way?

With all the peace talk going on its obvious that some just want to make waves.

I understand that I have strong views and opinions.....but isnt that what blogs are all about?

If they disagree with my views and opinions.....debate me.

But to go around with emails and PM trying to start a revolution against little old me is kind of.....childish in my opinion.

Anyhoo Ric, Gams, G00, melt, Gs, MP or any QoDer I could really use some help on what course of action I should take.

I really have sympathy for people like this and want to take the high road as this person must have some serious mental hang ups........


Any advise is welcomed....Thanks IE :)

I tell you, I am looking for a new and better cleaning service. I have one contact I am checking into.. I hate having a service that I have to be home for them to be here; would rather have someone that is like "family" and you can give the key to your house. I had a couple like that for about 6 years and loved it...they came while I was at work and everything Thursday my house was clean when I got hom from work...the next 6 people we've gone thru...not so good...


GAMMA...MY CLEANING SERVICE SUCKS TOO....CASSIE...KYLE..TIM..THOSE KIDS MAKE MORE OF A MESS THAN THEY CLEAN
