    Amy Winehouse....

    I liked her music, and thought her voice was a powerhouse. But boy did she ever seem screwed up, so I can't say it's all that shocking, but sad nevertheless.

    "I Love Me Some Rednecks"

    "I Love Me Some Rednecks"

    No, I'm in south AL. A friend of mine shared the link to this editorial on facebook, and I thought it was a pretty accurate portrait of what happens when disaster strikes. R u near there? *Edit - I can see now (couldn't on the blkbry) where u are.

    "I Love Me Some Rednecks"

    This is a wonderful editorial from the Moulton Advertiser about how our much-maligned rural boys are really the ones you want around when the world is falling apart - or blowing down as the case may be. http://www.alabamawx.com/?p=47772

    bought the wife a robot vacuum

    Have you seen the newer one made for hard-surface floors? Our house is solid floors throughout, so I'm thinking seriously about making that purchase. I gotta say, db is right on the money in this case. 1 - I prefer to pick out my own jewelry that's to my taste, and I don't like a lot of...

    thankfully it's all over

    HD, you're such a kind gal. Kerley's right, though. With new horror stories and climbing death tolls in our own backyard, it's kinda hard to see all that gushing and extravagance and not have it stick in your craw a bit.

    That's the fella.

    seen the bird that skewers grubs

    We have a type of shrike (colored much like a mocking bird, but shaped differently) in our area that does the same thing. I've been told sticking the bugs on barbed wire is their way of saving for later what they find when they aren't hungry. Traditionally they used saw briars or small sharp...

    Storms in Alabama and Georgia

    Ala, good to see you're on here posting. Maybe your property damage won't be too severe.

    Storms in Alabama and Georgia

    My mom and a co-worker of hers are going to N AL to shoot pics and video this morning. I know a couple of families who lost everything, and one of my former students was injured in Tuscaloosa but will be fine. Scary stories coming this morning.

    Ringtones

    My default is the intro from "Dancing in the Moonlight" by King Harvest. I love that song, nobody else I know uses it for a ringtone, and it always makes people smile.

    "Tainted Meat" Headline

    http://www.foxnews.com/health/2011/04/15/nearly-half-meat-tainted-drug-resistant-bacteria/#content I was just thinking yesterday about the great prices we've seen lately and I thought, "I'm sure it won't be too long before there's some scare about safety." Some of the comments kill me...

    Venting - not at all bovine-related

    Well KMac, maybe God will put you on the good side of the tracks in heaven so you won't have to descend into fellowship with those of us who have had real problems (and/or have compassion for those who do) and still choose to serve the Lord - The Lord who, by the way, did have compassion for...

    Venting - not at all bovine-related

    Your original post gave no indication that you understand that concept. I have peace and hope for the future, but very little affection for the mistaken idea that God has grandchildren or somehow prevents earthly hardship for those that profess to be His.

    Venting - not at all bovine-related

    Glad things are so peachy for you, but don't think for one minute that all that can't change or those "mistakes" to which you glossingly refer are any better or worse than the choice of drugs or alcohol or infidelity or anything else you have been fortunate enough to avoid. Plenty of people with...

    Venting - not at all bovine-related

    Many thanks to you all. I was kind of in a funk yesterday afternoon, but I feel a little better this morning. A long hot shower and good sleep make almost everything a little better in my world. From people who seemed to have every advantage to those who never seemed to have a chance, it is...

    Venting - not at all bovine-related

    A friend of my husband and myself died yesterday of an apparent drug overdose, and I am just sick about it. This makes 6 school friends of his that have died at their own hand, either intentionally or because of overdose. I have a relative by marriage that took her own life because of...

    Completely overwhelmed.

    Bless your heart, girl! I know you must be about ready to take a long walk off a short pier, but hang in there. You'll make it. Like others said - learn to let stuff go. My husband is the WORST at helping out around the house, but I learn to overlook how awful he is at folding clothes and such...

    Just rain here. Low only got to 34 and the wet stuff was gone before sunrise.
