Off on a mission

Firstly,Happy Birthday WIXY.Have a wonderful,wonderful year.Heres a cake I would help you eat(sugarfree ,of course)

From now on every week and weekend is filled with something that has to be done.It seems like my calendar is filled up till the New Year.
Tomorrow is the putting-up-the-tree-day and next week I have Jury duty.
I will be at the local courthouse cooped in when all of you are able to see the butterflies flutter around,the roses bloom and watch the grass grow.
Whats the worst part about it?
Its election time.... and the county I live in is 99% Democrat and I cant cheer too loudly when McCain wins for fear of being ostracised!
Doubly worse is the fact that I get claustrophobic in big rooms with people and not much noise,I feel cooped in and get panic attacks,so please pray for me.This will officially be the hardest thing I have ever done in my life.I dont want to make a fool of myself !
I'll see you all in the second week of November and dont forget to change your clocks back.

Dr Deborah Honeycutt for Congress-Georgia 13th District

I did say I had political fatigue and would not blog about it anymore but I blogged about this lady on Red County(where I blog every Wednesday,Incognito blogs there too,shameless plug,Thankyou very much !) and had to say something here
Have you ever looked at a person and felt that they were honest people.Well,Dr Deborah Honeycutt made me think that.She just seemed very regal,clean and like she meant business.I am not a person who judges a person by the cover so I delved into her background.
It seems like the Democrats dont like her because well...she may be a threat to David Scott who is the present Congressman.She raised a lot of money for a newbie and seems to be getting the vote because she has not delved what her party affiliation was
Again,who cares about party affiliation?If I found a Democratic candidate I believed in ,I will cross over(hell may freeze over,but...)
Actually hubby and I voted as Democrats in the last primaries to kick out the corrupt incumbents
She is my choice for Congresswoman.She has been in health care so hoping to see some changes there.She is a small business owner and knows the pinch we feel.She is new and maybe able to wipe out the corruption from the oldies here.
Cynthia McKinney brought a negative face to congresswomen from Georgia and a Deborah Honeycutt may be able to change that

I hope everyone had a great weekend.Mine was mainly uneventful which in my book means great!
This week is gift wrapping week for me.I bought gifts for everyone throughout the year and now I am done.Well,except for my husband...I havent started on his as yet!He is a pain to buy for.
This weekend, the kids will be staying with us and it is the week we(stepdaughter and I) put up our Christmas tree.She puts a lot of thought into it.It may be a Harley Davidson tree again as dad had a rough year !We dont usually repeat themes but its for a good cause!
Hubby has predicted a big to-do in the political world.
Any predictions ?

Indians for McCain

Just recently a friend told me about this group-Indians for McCain.Since there are very few Indian Republicans in the US,I was wondering what brought us together.

They had a neat comparison chart on their website.Interestingly enough they have very strong, solid points.
Two main points I want to bring up here is :
Obama wants to raise taxes on any business you do with India.
McCain endorses the US-India Civil Nuclear Deal .Obama has remained silent on that issue

I also learnt something new. McCain and his wife have been to India many times.

The average Indian living here and who has registered to vote is a Democrat and no one knows why they are a Democrat.All they can come up with is that Republicans favor rich ,white people tax wise.

I wish I belonged to an Indian organisation just so that I could show them which presidential nominee stands for what and educate a fellow Indian.
But in the meantime I do spread the word back home as my family thinks that McCain is bad and Obama is good! The general concept there is that Americans are racist and would not let a Black man win!

This post would not be complete without mentioning Joe Bidens racist comment "You cannot go into a 7-11 or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent.""I am not joking."
And on the other hand Sarah Palin appointed an Indian,Anand Dubey as Director of Information Technology

My weekend-race,polls

I had a half marathon today(Sunday).Its a Nike+women's virtual half marathon.You run with your ipod with a Nike+ sensor and sync it on your computer,the results are uploaded to Nike+ and you can compare results with other runners like you.
My ipod froze at Mile 12.35. .75 miles to Finish.How much worse could it be ?When you restore your ipod,it wipes out the unsaved data which would be my 12.35 miles.So I don't have any data to prove that I ran.You know whats worse?Me sending my ipod to Apple to be checked thoroughly before the race and them not finding any faults.
The Nike+ people said they would consider sending me my finishers kit(a t-shirt and a Tiffany key chain) but that I had to call in a day or two to check back.They said it would be in "good faith".I am grateful to them for being kind as I was so close to crying.I have trained for this for so long,thro injuries etc .I hate my ipod

To cheer myself up,I bought another Anya Hindmarch for Target bag.What would I do without materialistic pleasures ?

On a positive note,I finally got a poll call.It sounded like it was from/for the local Democrat senator.

Hubby is at Daytona,FL for Biketoberfest so I had a free weekend.Was dogsitting a friends dog,Jake and in-laws dog Jezebel who guarded me !

And its Monday again

Joe the Plumber...or frasypoos husband the barber

Joe the plumber is my husband....not literally but they are symbolic of the same person.
They work hard for their money,they save when they can and invest when they can.They want to pay their mortgage on time and do not depend on credit cards to bail them out.All they want is something put aside for retirement and something to be able to give their children for the future.

Most small business owners do not have retirement benefits or health care.We did not till we thought that my husband may be diabetic,I still dont have health care.We really cant afford it.

There is a reason we dont like"share the wealth".We work hard for our money and we want to keep what little we have, not enable someone who is healthy and should be looking for a job.
Its not fair.

It literally breaks my heart to think of what will happen if Obama comes into office and implements this policy.I dont want a handout.I want to go to sleep knowing that the reason I am tired is because I worked hard that day(or rather my husband did)

Political Polls

Want to do a political poll ?
I found some .....Click here

Happy Birthday to my husband

My husband turns 41 today.
He is a great husband,a wonderful provider and a good Christian man

He keeps me humble.When I suggested that I needed to take a brief break from running,he said that I should'nt as I would blow up like a house.

He says he needs me all the time........when he gets breakfast in bed,sometimes spoon fed,foot massages!

He is my fashion critic,he gently points out the look like Barbara Bush,you have a muffin top,you are' nt going out with me wearing ballet flats like my grandma

Seriously though,I am so glad that we met and married.We were made for each other even though we are poles apart.I love this man and look forward to going grey together!

To my wonderful husband
Happy Birthday dearest.

State of Anarchy

Thats what I would call our local Home Owners Association(HOA).

We live in a nice neighbourhood,little windy roads overlooking a lake with beautiful houses.A long time ago,it was where people who retired from Delta and places like that came to live.We live on side that overlooks the houses that overlook the lake.My husbands grandfather owned this house and hubby ended up buying it from his father and uncles and thats how we can afford to live here.

There has always been a HOA which was somewhat active but it generally maintained the upkeep of the lake and signs and stuff like that.
My husband had a falling out with them and refused to pay his dues.
Anything to do with the HOA was voluntary.

Then a bunch of new people moved in and took over the Board,elected members of the board who are"their people" and are trying to put in a HOA by force.No one who lives here wants it but somehow these people are moving ahead.
They sent out a form on which you had to write your opinions on and here are some of their rules
they can come and check your yard and house at any time.
they can raise dues at any time
your dog cannot bark constantly or cats cannot wander around as they please
they can fine you for breaking rules thro a letter sent by their lawyer($75.00 for the fine +$25.00 to pay the lawyer for fining you)
If you fail to pay,they can put a lien on your house(a couple lost their house for not paying $200.00)

These are some of the rules worded in "lawyerease".They have hired a lawyer who specialises in raising dues,some of the neighbourhoods he works for have dues at $2200.

Who can afford stuff like this ?We are everyday,middle class people,who work hard for their living and make do with what we have.We dont live on the lake and dont use the lake like people living on the lake do,yet we are supposed to pay for lake specific things.In todays world,is it feasible to pay out sums of money like that?Not to mention we live in the worst county in GA.People have moved out from here in droves,leaving empty houses behind

The HOA has twisted the laws to suit them(flat out lied) and misused funds and now a core group against them has formed and I am hoping that they end up suing them.They meet and discuss laws and stuff and its like an underground movement!Sometimes there is a Board member hanging out to see who meets where!

I am going to be doing my first half marathon this Sunday.If I do well in it I planned on doing the thanksgiving day marathon in November.
But my plans are not my legs plans!
Let me start at the beginning.I was training wisely,regular runs with periods of rest and had gotten to the point where I was running 33-35 miles a week comfortably.
Then my husband was diagnosed with diabetes and he started exercising regularly and we walked 3 miles every day.With all this added on my leg said"ENOUGH".So 2 weeks before a half marathon I had to take a weeks rest.I went for a short walk today and felt great.
To do or not to do is now a problem !I know I can do 13.1 miles but will I end up hurting my leg?
Not to mention that if I have to give up running,I will shrivel up and die or I will bloat up and burst,to be precise!

Me and my shares

Two years ago,my husband opened up a trading account with $2000 in it and asked me to trade and buy.His theory was that people who did not know much about shares and stocks did well in the market as they studied it.And it was a comparatively small amount.... if lost.
Good first investment was Delta,good sound decision ?No!They claimed bankruptcy soon after.
Then I got a tip that Air Tran was going to go up....bad timing again.Gas prices went crazy and I lost on that too
Next,I played it safe and invested in energy shares.Those have remained steady but I am now at a point where I am scared to check my account!
Everybody has been urging us to invest right now as its so cheap and it should go up!
My theory:If I had bought a nice designer bag...I would still have something to show for it!

Brian Nichols-a warrior for the cause

Excuse me...for I am about to cuss
This *&%&# killed a judge, a court reporter and a sheriff’s deputy and escaped from his rape trial at the Courthouse three years ago.His trial is underway right now.Yes,3 years later.

His defense is that he is insane.....I would agree,you would have to be insane to think you could get away with murdering a few people and kidnapping some more or holding them hostage .

But his story is that
1)he is a soldier for his people and that the people he killed died a noble death.

2)was at war with the United States government and “all of the persons killed were employees of the United States government, there was no collateral damage”

3)He thought that the Judge (Judge Barnes) was the Master. The slave master

Imagine being a juror on that case.

They showed pieces of his interview in jail and he talked about being angry about prisoners not being paid for jobs they did. it parallels significantly the treatment of slaves.”He said: “I felt as though I was a slave with them. As a soldier, I don’t feel like I committed any war crimes.

Seriously ???? Maybe he wants to sit in a Rolls Royce while being transported to court and drink champagne on the way there.

The reporter also mentioned that the only job this %^*# has was making his own bed.

Why do we take so long to prosecute scums like this ?Dont we need a speedy trial and boom,bam off to hell or wherever else people like him belong ?

Undecided Voters

Who are these magical people ?Where do they live?Why havent I met any?
Have you seen any ?

Presidential candidates

My husband was at a local Blockbuster when he saw a little girl pick up a movie on McCain and disdainfully put it back by saying "He' s no hero"
Well,to me he is.And that's based on the fact that he fought for the country.And that also applies to every soldier fighting for the country.
The little girl probably heard that statement at home and thats where I take offence.
Parents dont teach children why they should choose/or not choose a candidate and thats based on their stance on policys etc not a persons race.
Personally I think that Obama has achieved a lot by being a black presidential candidate,it is an achievement to be where he is.I just dont agree with a lot of the democratic policies and thats why I wont be voting for him.
I guess what I am trying to say is judge a person for what he stands for and nothing else.Judge for yourself

My weekend

Firstly Happy Birthday Mr P.Since all of you know him,I wont bother introducing you guys to him.He was the first visitor to my first blog.He endured my blogposts about fashion,makeup,dog' s antics etc till I branched off!But heres to growing old with Mr P!!!

Enjoyed church immensely today.The Pastor spoke about trying to control our future instead of leaving it to God.
In our adult Sunday school we are studying prophesy and are talking about the end times-Russia plays a crucial part.

A month ago,we were invited to watch a special preview of the movie"FireProof" at the Fox theatre.It was fantastic.Dont know who invited us but so glad they did.On Saturday our Sunday School class watched it at the theatre again.Still a big Thumbs Up!

I realised that there are no Obama/Biden yard signs where I live but its almost chockfull of McCain/Palin signs.Hoping its a sign of the times to come!

I thought I was done with why am I here ?

Seriously I thought I was done with blogging but here I am....back with another new blog!
I blame it on the Democrats,they kept on and on and on and I had to come back to speak my mind or ruin my marriage !
Thoughts that stay in your head and that repeat themselves over and over again when expressed to your better/other half tend to ruin a marriage.
So my excuse in coming back like a bad disease is that its a sacrifice I make for the sake of my marriage.
