That big blue H in the middle of the
country is pulling in very cold Canadian air,
driving the temps way down!
You can see the temperature
change on the map as the cold
Right now we're getting a lot of rain, but by tonight, 1-2 inches of the white stuff. I can't even say that four letter word!
I know it's all most December,
And we've all ready had some of that white stuff,
but I'm never ready for it to stay.
And I'll be happy to post pictures because I know
all you people who went south will really miss it!
Which reminds me......
I better check and make sure
my snow blower is working!

I've never actually worn any of the hairstyles he is displaying! Though the last one I might achieve if my hair keeps getting any thinner! I've also added a clock. I don't know why, except again it was free. Just trying to make my Blog a little different from the rest. I've had a lot of fun with it. Even though I still don't know where I'm going with it. I guess time will tell.

December 1st is Aids Day. I'm normally not an activist, but I got this e-mail from a friend, and it seems like such an easy way to help a good cause.
Bristol-Myers Squibb is donating $1 for each person who visits their website and "virtually lights a candle". Up to $100.000.00.
Please take a minute to "light a candle":

The Pillsbury dough boy!
But the weather was great! 60 and sunny.
The food was great!
And spent the day playing computer games!
I am a computer game addict! But only in the winter when I can't mo-ho or play in the yard!
Had to work Friday, and working today also.
Everyone have a great weekend!

Now the free version is very basic, but good enough for most people. You can pay to upgrade for more protection, but I don't think most people really need to. Here's the link!
For even more security you also need a firewall! It keeps the hackers from being able to access your computer from a remote location. Once you have these two products, you'll be a lot safer.
Antivirus software protects you from known viruses and can help clean up after a virus attack. But only a PC firewall can block unauthorized access to your Internet-connected computer and protect against both known and unknown malicious software and Internet threats.
The one I recommend is Zone Alarm Free Version by Zone Labs. I t gives you a very good basic firewall which is all most users should need. Now if you have windows xp, you already have a firewall built in. But here is the link,
Two other programs that can keep your computer clean are Ad-Aware SE,
With the ability to scan your RAM, Registry, hard drives, and external storage devices for known data-mining, advertising, and tracking components, Ad-Aware SE easily can clean your system, allowing you to maintain a higher degree of privacy while you surf the Web.
And Spybot - Search and Destroy!
Spybot - Search & Destroy detects and removes spy ware. Spyware silently tracks your surfing behaviour to create a marketing profile for you that is transmitted without your knowledge to the compilers and sold to advertising companies.
Make sure you run them regularly and update them often and you can surf the net safely!

Even though winter does'nt
technically start till Dec 22nd,
Things look pretty dead and dreary.
That's probably why it
seems winter is so long.
So now the l-o-n-g wait for spring.
Even the Mums are done blooming.
The bird baths have
The ornamental grasses
And of course,
But even with everything nearly
But then again, the long winter has

Recently, while going through an airport during one of his many trips,
President Bush encountered a man with long gray hair, wearing a white robe and sandals, and holding a staff.
President Bush went up to the man and said, "Has anyone told you that you look like Moses?" The man didn't answer. He just kept staring straight ahead.
The president said, "Moses!" in a loud voice.
The man just stared ahead, never acknowledging the President.
The president pulled a Secret Service agent aside and, pointing to the robed man, asked him,
"Am I crazy or does that man not look like Moses to you?"
The Secret Service agent looked at the man and agreed.
"Well," said the president, "every time I say his name, he ignores me and stares straight ahead, refusing to speak. Watch!" Again the president yelled, "Moses!" and again the man ignored him.
The Secret Service agent went up to the man in the white robe and whispered,
"You look just like Moses. Are you Moses?"
The man leaned over and whispered back,
"Yes, I am Moses.
However, the last time I talked to a bush,
I spent 40 years wandering in the desert and ended up leading my people to the only spot in the entire Middle East where there is no oil."
And now off to work!

The Differences Between Men And Women
BATHROOMS: A man has six items in his bathroom -- a toothbrush, shaving cream, razor, a bar of Dial soap, and a towel from the Holiday Inn. The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 437. A man would not be able to identify most of these items.
GROCERIES: A woman makes a list of things she needs and then goes out to the store and buys these things. A man waits till the only items left in his fridge are half a lime and a soda. Then he goes grocery shopping. He buys everything that looks good. By the time a man reaches the checkout counter, his cart is packed tighter than the Clampett's car on Beverly Hillbillies. Of course, this will not stop him from going to the 10-items-or-less lane.
SHOES: When preparing for work, a woman will put on a Mondi wool suit, then slip on Reebok sneakers. She will carry her dress shoes in a plastic bag from Saks. When a woman gets to work, she will put on her dress shoes. Five minutes later, she will kick them off because her feet are under the desk. A man will wear the same pair of shoes all day.
CATS: Women love cats. Men say they love cats, but when women aren't looking, men kick cats.
DRESSING UP: A woman will dress up to: Go shopping, water the plants, empty the garbage, answer the phone, read a book, get the mail. A man will dress up for: weddings, funerals.
LAUNDRY: Women do laundry every couple of days. A man will wear every article of clothing he owns, including his surgical pants that were hip about eight years ago, before he will do his laundry. When he is finally out of clothes, he will wear a dirty sweatshirt inside out, rent a U-Haul and take his mountain of clothes to the Laundromat. Men always expect to meet beautiful women at the Laundromat. This is a myth perpetuated by re-runs of old episodes of "Love, American Style."
OFFSPRING: Ah, children. A woman knows all about her children. She knows about dentist appointments and soccer games and romances and best friends and favorite foods and secret fears and hopes and dreams. A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.

One of the many issues during the election had to do with immigration. Some think we should ship all the illegal immigrants out of here, and some think we should give them some type of amnesty.
What ever they decide, I think there should be some sort of program to help them learn English. I think all Americans should at least know basic English. If people want to come to America for a better life, that's great! But at least learn the language! We shouldn't have to have everything in 2, 3, or more languages. I'm all for diversity but we need some common ground to tie us all together. And a common language does just that.
Just my thoughts for today.

For those of you who aren't familiar with You Tube, it's a web site where anyone can up load clips of them self or of anything else. And it's amazing all the effort people go thru to make up some of them!
But back to the election. Here in Michigan, a record amount of money was spent on the Governor's race. Over a total of $50,000,000.00!
And Devos spent 40 million of it and didn't even win the election!
It just goes to show, you can't just throw tons of money and expect to win. You actually have to say what you plan to do if elected. He just didn't do it!
I normally don't get all political on my blog, but we've had to put up with adds since April!
Anyway, glad it's all over!
And now I'm off to work!

I've gone on for a couple of weeks now about our Oregon trip. Even though we were there for only four days! But there was so many things to see and do in that short time and we wanted to take it all in! We loved Oregon and especially Portland! Would love to take the motor home out there for a summer. Maybe some day!
the rental car back.
