9. Addressing all the officers as Cap'n Crunch

Hussein, may he reign for 1,000 years"
5. Distributing leaflets telling Iraqi citizens how to save money
by dialing 10-10-220
4. Senior officer asks to see you at 0400 hours; you show up 400
hours later
3. Your name is Geraldo Rivera
2. Your name is Saddam Hussein

I tend not to write very long posts because I've never been very eloquent with the written word (being formally trained as an accountant - I didn't do much writing in college). That said, I just feel the need to let some of my thoughts out. I've stopped watching the television and listening to the radio as of about noon yesterday. I simply couldn't take it anymore. I can't stop thinking about our men (and woman) who have been captured and tortured. I keep thinking that the ones who were killed are probably the lucky ones. I don't have the stomach for war to tell you the truth, but nor can I live comfortably with the idea that there are Saddams out there who systematically torture and kill their own citizens (it goes without saying that they have no qualms about torturing and killing POWs). So of course I am for the war and getting Saddam out of there. But I still don't have the stomach for it. I'm thinking about the woman who was captured. Many will think I'm old fashioned but I do not think that women belong in any type of situation where they can be captured or killed. I'm just heartbroken over this. How can the feminists be for putting women in combat roles? Why would a woman want to be there? It's bad enough that our men have to go to war, but I think they're better equipped for it - both physically and mentally. I pray every night for our troops and for the Iraqi people. I pray that we will meet our objectives quickly and that the Iraqi people and the world for that matter will soon be rid of this murderer called Saddam. I'm tired.

Please remember to pray for President Bush and all of our men and women who are currently in harm's way in Iraq.

Holy Cow! We now have close to 4 feet of snow and it's not stopping anytime soon! This is amazing! I have my office in the basement and usually during the day I don't have to turn on any lights because I have a window. Well, the window well is totally filled with snow and it's dark down here in the middle of the day. Weird!

Ok, I heard a really great joke tonight. I've never tried to write out a joke before but it had me laughing pretty good, so I'm gonna repeat it here.

The Pope, Billy Graham and Oral Roberts all died at the same time. Well, they all went to heaven and met Saint Peter up there. Unfortunately, Peter told them that their rooms weren't ready yet but he could make other arrangements for them for the night. So Peter picks up the phone and says, "Satan? Yea, I've got three new guys up here but their rooms aren't ready yet. Do you think you could put them up for the night? OK, thanks." Peter hangs up the phone and tells the three men they'll have to go down to Hell for the night and he'll have their rooms ready in the morning. So the Pope, Billy Graham and Oral Roberts shrug their shoulders and head on down. Well, about three hours later, Peter gets a call from Satan saying, "Peter I don't think this is gonna work out. The Pope is forgiving everyone, Billy Graham is saving everyone and Oral Roberts has raised enough money to air condition the joint!"

Hee Hee!

Happy Monday everyone! I hope Felicia and Ang had wonderful birthdays! I bought some new adoptions over the weekend so I've gotta get to work on getting those posted to my adoption shop. And my March Net Buddy, Antoinette sent me the most darling gift for my web pages. Thank you again Antoinette! I'll get it posted as soon as I can!

Well, so far Right You Are! is getting really great comments! Thanks to everyone who visited over the weekend. I'm very excited because I think (fingers crossed) that a buddy of mine is going to team up with me on Right You Are! She's got a wonderful dry wit and is very strong in her opinions and I hope, hope, hope that she says Yes she'll join me! (I'm not mentioning any names cuz I don't want to put her on the spot LOL!)

Hmmm, what else? Don't know! I'm not weighing in cuz I would just be sad, sad, sad!

Ok, I've finally got my OTHER blog to a point where I'm gonna start sharing the link. If you're of the liberal persuasion, then you just might want to skip this one, it might raise your blood pressure too much. Everyone else, if you'd like to stop by and take a look see, my new blog is Right You Are!

Are you as tired as I am of the Hollywood crowd and their bashing of our president and our great country? Then you've gotta read "Charlie Daniels' Open Letter to the Hollywood Bunch"

Thank you Kricket for sending me this link!

I know I've been really really bad about ignoring all of my blog pals! If this is you, please accept my apology. I've just been totally stressed over work lately and have found myself unable to follow up with my commitments online. Tomorrow I promise will be better!

I wanted to share this little exchange between Christopher (my almost 5-y/o) and myself. Chris came up to me yesterday and said "Mom, what do 'them apples' taste like?" Well, he totally had me stumped until I heard him later saying to his little sister Jennie (3 1/2 y/o), "How do you like them apples Jen?" LMAO! I'd love to know where he heard that one!

Hope everyone is having a FABULOUS Tuesday!

Now here's a quiz that should be easy to get right!

Wow! A classic example of why entertainers should just stick to the business of entertaining (although I must admit that what Sheryl Crow has to say about the war is Hugely entertaining LOL) --
'I think war is based in greed and there are huge karmic retributions that will follow. I think war is never the answer to solving any problems. The best way to solve problems is to not have enemies' - Sheryl Crow

Sorry I haven't been around much lately. I've been super busy with work plus I redid my main site (seeing as Valentine's day was long gone!) I'm also creating another blog (my political blog, so you all don't have to listen to me rant if you don't want to. LOL!). I promise I'll get back to blogging tomorrow.

Better late than never - my Participation Positives for Monday:

I'm thankful for:

the United States of America and her allies, especially Great Britian
my job
my three healthy (most of the time) children
my husband
my God
my faith
the beautiful Colorado mountains
a free press
our president
our armed forces
my children's teachers
my mother and my sister
our new (used) van

A million other things that I can't think of right now!

5. Golden oldies or the newest tunes? Oldies
6. Ice cream: in a cone or a dish? Sugar Cone
