Crucial

 

Because of recent abductions

in daylight hours, refresh yourself

of these things to do

In an emergency situation...

 

This is for you,

and for you to share

with your wife,

your children,

Everyone you know.

 

After reading these 9 crucial tips ,

 

Forward them to someone you care about.

 

It never hurts to be careful

 

In this crazy world we live in.

 

1 Tip from Tae Kwon Do :

 

The elbow is the strongest point

On your body.

If you are close enough to use it,

Do!

2. Learned this from a tourist guide

in New Orleans

 

If a robber asks

 

for your wallet and/or purse,

 

DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM

 

Toss it away from you....

 

chances are

 

that he is more interested

 

in your wallet and/or purse

 

than you,

 

and he will go

 

For the wallet/purse.

 

RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!

3. If you are ever thrown

 

into the trunk of a car,

 

kick out the back tail lights

 

and stick your arm out the hole

 

And start waving like crazy.

 

The driver won't see you,

 

But everybody else will.

 

This has saved lives.


4. Women have a tendency

 

to get into their cars after shopping,

eating, working, etc.,

 

and just sit (doing their checkbook,

 

Or making a list, etc.

 

DON'T DO THIS!)

 

The predator

 

will be watching you,

 

and this is the perfect opportunity

 

for him to get in

 

on the passenger side,

 

put a gun to your head,

 

and tell you where to go.

 

AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR

 

 

LOCK THE DOORS AND LEAVE.

a. If someone

 

is in the car

 

with a gun

 

to your head

 

DO NOT DRIVE OFF,

 

Repeat:

 

DO NOT DRIVE OFF!

 

Instead gun the engine

 

and speed into anything,

 

Wrecking the car.

 

Your Air Bag will save you.

 

If the person is

 

in the back seat

 

they will get the worst of it .

 

As soon as the car crashes

 

Bail out and run.

 

It is better than having them

 

find your body

 

In a remote location.

5

A few notes about getting

 

into your car in a parking lot,

 

Or parking garage:

 

A.) Be aware:

 

look around you,

 

look into your car,

 

at the passenger side floor ,

 

and in the back seat

 

B..) If you are parked next to a big van,

 

enter your car from the passenger door .

 

Most serial killers attack their victims

 

by pulling them into their vans

 

while the women are attempting

 

to get into their cars.

 

C..) Look at the car

 

parked on the driver's side

 

of your vehicle,

 

and the passenger side.

 

If a male is sitting alone

 

in the seat nearest your car,

 

you may want to walk back

 

into the mall, or work,

 

and get a guard/policeman

 

To walk you back out.

 

IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)

6. ALWAYS

 

take the elevator

 

instead of the stairs.

 

(Stairwells are horrible places

 

to be alone

 

And the perfect crime spot.

 

This is especially true at NIGHT!)

7. If the predator has a gun

 

and you are not under his control,

 

ALWAYS RUN!

 

The predator will only hit you

 

(a running target)

 

4 in 100 times;

 

And even then,

 

it most likely

 

WILL NOT

 

be a vital organ.

 

RUN,

 

Preferably!

 

In a zing-sag pattern!




8. As women,

 

we are always trying

 

To be sympathetic:

 

STOP !

 

It may get you raped,

 

Or killed.

 

 

 

the serial killer,

 

was a good-looking,

 

well educated man,

 

who ALWAYS played

 

on the sympathies

 

of unsuspecting women.

 

He walked with a cane,

 

or a limp,

 

and often asked

 

'for help'

 

into his vehicle

 

or with his vehicle,

 

which is when he abducted
His next victim.

 

************* Here it is

*******

 

9. Another Safety Point:

 

Someone just told me

 

that her friend heard

 

a crying baby on her porch

 

the night before last,

 

and she called the police

 

because it was late

 

And she thought it was weird.

 

The police told her

 

'Whatever you do,

 

DO NOT

 

Open the door.'

 

The lady

 

then said that

 

it sounded like the baby

 

had crawled near a window,

 

and she was worried

 

that it would crawl

 

to the street

 

and get run over.

 

The policeman said,

 

'We already have a unit on the way,

 

whatever you do,

 

DO NOT open the door.'

 

He told her that they think

 

a serial killer

 

has a baby's cry recorded

 

and uses it to coax

 

women out of their homes

 

thinking that someone

 

dropped off a baby

 

He said they have not verified it,

 

but have had several calls

 

by women saying that

 

they hear baby's cries

 

outside their doors

 

when they're home alone

 

at night.

Please pass this on and

 

DO NOT

 

open the door

 

for a crying baby ----

 

This

 

e-mail should probably

 

be taken seriously because

 

the Crying Baby

theory

 

was mentioned on

 

America 's Most Wanted

 

this past Saturday

 

when they profiled

 

the serial killer in Louisiana


I'd like you

 

to forward this

 

To all the women you know.

 

It may save a life.

 

A candle is not dimmed

 

By lighting another candle.

 

I was going to send this to the ladies only,

 

but guys,

 

if you love your mothers,

 

wives,

 

sisters,

 

daughters, etc.,

 

you may want to

 

Pass it onto them, as well.

Send this

 

to any woman you know

 

that may need

 

to be reminded

 

that the world we live in

 

has a lot of crazies in it

 

and it's better to be safe

 

Than sorry.

 

Everyone should take 5 minutes to read this.  It may save your life or a loved one's life.

Great reminders TPoke, especially with the holidays here, there always seems to be a rise in attacks.

The "crying baby" ploy is just chilling. The very thought that someone could be standing outside my door, or window, with a taped recording of a crying baby trying to lure me out of the house is like something out of a horror movie. Isn't it just horrible that we have to be so paronoid these days.

Another thing I'd like to add........I ALWAYS take my keys out of my purse before I leave the store and hold them with the long part sticking out between my fingers. If some questionable character approaches me, with the intent to cause harm, (and my evil stare doesn't scare them away  >:( )  I will use my keys to gouge their nasty little eyes out........ ;D

Also make use of your intuition.   If a situation doesn't 'feel right' to you, get outta there.   Have someone walk with you to the car.

Subconscious senses are real and very keen.

This isn't my story and it's a bit long but worth the read... It was posted by a biker from Kansas on a mailing list I subscribe to. I also saw it on some other websites so who knows the real origin...

This is a perfect example of the adage, "You don't get any experience unless you're allowed to f-up."

************

HOW TO ROPE A DEER

I had this idea that I was going to rope a deer, put it in a stall, feed it up on corn for a couple of weeks, then kill it and eat it. The first step in this adventure was getting a deer. I figured that since they congregated at my cattle feeder and do not seem to have much fear of me when we are there (a bold one will sometimes come right up and sniff at the bags of feed while I am in the back of the truck not 4 feet away) that it should not be difficult to rope one, get up to it and toss a bag over its head (to calm it down) then hog tie it and transport it home.

I filled the cattle feeder then hid down at the end with my rope. The cattle, who had seen the roping thing before, stayed well back. They were not having any of it. After about 20 minutes my deer showed up - 3 of them.

I picked out a likely looking one, stepped out from the end of the feeder, and threw my rope. The deer just stood there and stared at me. I wrapped the rope around my waist and twisted the end so I would have a good hold. The deer still just stood and stared at me, but you could tell it was mildly concerned about the whole rope situation. I took a step towards it...it took a step away. I put a little tension on the rope and received an education.

The first thing that I learned is that while a deer may just stand there looking at you funny while you rope it, they are spurred to action when you start pulling on that rope. That deer EXPLODED.

The second thing I learned is that pound for pound, a deer is a LOT stronger than a cow or a colt. A cow or a colt in that weight range I could fight down with a rope with some dignity. A deer, no chance.

That thing ran and bucked and twisted and pulled. There was no controlling it and certainly no getting close to it. As it jerked me off my feet and started dragging me across the ground, it occurred to me that having a deer on a rope was not nearly as good an idea as I originally imagined. The only up side is that they do not have as much stamina as many animals. A brief 10 minutes later, it was tired and not nearly as quick to jerk me off my feet and drag me when I managed to get up. It took me a few minutes to realize this, since I was mostly blinded by the blood flowing out of the big gash in my head.

At that point I had lost my taste for corn fed venison. I just wanted to get that devil creature off the end of that rope. I figured if I just let it go with the rope hanging around its neck, it would likely die slow and painfully somewhere. At the time, there was no love at all between me and that deer. At that moment, I hated the thing and I would venture a guess that the feeling was mutual. Despite the gash in my head and the several large knots where I had cleverly arrested the deer's momentum by bracing my head against various large rocks as it dragged me across the ground, I could still think clearly enough to recognize that there was a small chance that I shared some tiny amount of responsibility for the situation we were in, so I didn't want the deer to have it suffer a slow death so I managed to get it lined back up in between my truck and the feeder - a little trap I had set before hand. Kind of like a squeeze chute.

I got it to back in there and started moving up so I could get my rope back.

Did you know that deer bite? They do! I never in a million years would have thought that a deer would bite somebody so I was very surprised when I reached up there to grab that rope and the deer grabbed hold of my wrist. Now, when a deer bites you, it is not like being bit by a horse where they just bite you and then let go. A deer bites you and shakes its head - almost like a pit bull.

They bite HARD and it hurts.

The proper thing to do when a deer bites you is probably to freeze and draw back slowly. I tried screaming and shaking instead. My method was ineffective. It seems like the deer was biting and shaking for several minutes, but it was likely only several seconds. I, being smarter than a deer (though you may be questioning that claim by now) tricked it.

While I kept it busy tearing the tar out of my right arm, I reached up with my left hand and pulled that rope loose.

That was when I got my final lesson in deer behavior for the day. Deer will strike at you with their front feet. They rear right up on their back feet and strike right about head and shoulder level, and their hooves are surprisingly sharp. I learned a long time ago that when an animal like a horse strikes at you with their hooves and you can't get away easily, the best thing to do is try to make a loud noise and make an aggressive move towards the animal. This will usually cause them to back down a bit so you can escape. This was not a horse. This was a deer, so obviously such trickery would not work. In the course of a millisecond I devised a different strategy. I screamed like woman and tried to turn and run.

The reason I had always been told NOT to try to turn and run from a horse that paws at you is that there is a good chance that it will hit you in the back of the head. Deer may not be so different from horses after all, besides being twice as strong and three times as evil, because the second I turned to run, it hit me right in the back of the head and knocked me down.

Now when a deer paws at you and knocks you down it does not immediately leave. I suspect it does not recognize that the danger has passed. What they do instead is paw your back and jump up and down on you while you are laying there crying like a little girl and covering your head.

I finally managed to crawl under the truck and the deer went away.

Now for the local legend. I was pretty beat up. My scalp was split open, I had several large goose eggs, my wrist was bleeding pretty good and felt broken (it turned out to be just badly bruised) and my back was bleeding in a few places, though my insulated canvas jacket had protected me from most of the worst of it. I drove to the nearest place, which was the co-op. I got out of the truck, covered in blood and dust and looking like hell. The guy who ran the place saw me through the window and came running out yelling "what happened?"

I have never seen any law in the state of Kansas that would prohibit an individual from roping a deer. I suspect that this is an area that they have overlooked entirely. Knowing, as I do, the lengths to which law enforcement personnel will go to exercise their power, I was concerned that they may find a way to twist the existing laws to paint my actions as criminal. I swear...not wanting to admit that I had done something monumentally stupid played no part in my response. I told him "I was attacked by a deer". I did not mention that at the time I had a rope on it.

The evidence was all over my body. Deer prints on the back of my jacket where it had stomped all over me and a large deer print on my face where it had struck me there. I asked him to call somebody to come get me. I didn't think I could make it home on my own. He did. Later that afternoon, a game warden showed up at my house and wanted to know about the deer attack. Surprisingly, deer attacks are a rare thing and wildlife and parks was interested in the event. I tried to describe the attack as completely and accurately as I could. I was filling the grain hopper and this deer came out of nowhere and just started kicking the hell out of me and BIT me. It was obviously rabid or insane or something.

EVERYBODY for miles around knows about the deer attack (the guy at the co-op has a big mouth). For several weeks people dragged their kids in the house when they saw deer around and the local ranchers carried rifles when they filled their feeders. I have told several people the story, but NEVER anybody around here. I have to see these people every day and as an outsider - a "city folk". I have enough trouble fitting in without them snickering behind my back and whispering "there is the idiot that tried to rope the deer."

Recently, I was diagnosed with A.A.A.D.D. -
Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder.
This is how it manifests:

I decide to water my garden.

As I turn on the hose in the driveway,
I look over at my car and decide it needs washing.

As I start toward the garage,
I notice mail on the porch table that
I brought up from the mail box earlier.

I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car.

I lay my car keys on the table,
put the junk mail in the garbage can under the table,
and notice that the can is full.

So, I decide to put the bills back
on the table and take out the garbage first.

But then I think,
since I'm going to be near the mailbox
when I take out the garbage anyway,
I may as well pay the bills first.

I take my check book off the table,
and see that there is only one check left.

My extra checks are in my desk in the study,
so I go inside the house to my desk where
I find the can of Coke I'd been drinking.

I'm going to look for my checks,
but first I need to push the Coke aside
so that I don't accidentally knock it over.

The Coke is getting warm,
and I decide to put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold.

As I head toward the kitchen with the Coke,
a vase of flowers on the counter
catches my eye--they need water.

I put the Coke on the counter and
discover my reading glasses that
I've been searching for all morning.

I decide I better put them back on my desk,
but first I'm going to water the flowers.

I set the glasses back down on the counter,
fill a container with water and suddenly spot the TV remote.
Someone left it on the kitchen table.

I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV,
I'll be looking for the remote,
but I won't remember that it's on the kitchen table,
so I decide to put it back in the den where it belongs,
but first I'll water the flowers.

I pour some water in the flowers,
but quite a bit of it spills on the floor.

So, I set the remote back on the table,
get some towels and wipe up the spill.

Then, I head down the hall trying to
remember what I was planning to do.

At the end of the day:

the car isn't washed

the bills aren't paid

there is a warm can of Coke sitting on the counter

the flowers don't have enough water,

there is still only 1 check in my check book,

I can't find the remote,

I can't find my glasses,

and I don't remember what I did with the car keys.

Then, when I try to figure out why nothing got done today,
I'm really baffled because I know I was busy all day,
and I'm really tired.

I realize this is a serious problem,
and I'll try to get some help for it,
but first I'll check my e-mail....

Do me a favor.
Forward this message to everyone you know,
because I don't remember who I've sent it to.

Don't laugh if this isn't you yet, your day is coming!!

How to Sing the Blues, Part 1

     1. Most blues begin "woke up this mornin'."

     2. "I got a good woman" is a bad way to begin the blues, unless you stick something nasty in the next line. I got a good woman--with the meanest dog in town.

     3. Blues are simple. After you have the first line right, repeat it. Then find something that rhymes. Sort of.

          Got a good woman with the meanest dog in town.
          He got teeth like Margaret Thatcher and he weighs ‘bout 500 pounds.

     4. The blues are not about limitless choice.

     5. Blues cars are Chevies and Cadillacs. Other acceptable blues transportation is a Greyhound bus or a southbound train. Walkin' plays a major part in the blues lifestyle. So does fixin' to die.

     6. Teenagers can't sing the blues. Adults sing the blues.
Blues adulthood means old enough to get the electric chair if you shoot a man in Memphis.

     7. You can have the blues in New York City, but not in Brooklyn or Queens. Hard times in Vermont or North Dakota are just a depression. Chicago, St. Louis and Kansas City are still the best places to have the blues.

     8. The following colors do not belong in the blues:
          a. violet
          b. beige
          c. mauve

Parking Rules for the Holidays, Part 1

Rule No. 1: When waiting for a parking spot, stop in the middle of the road, don't signal, and orient your car diagonally to prevent others from passing.

Rule No. 2: Always park on the lines, taking up as many spots as possible. Diagonal parking is preferred.

Rule No. 3: In a crowded parking lot, if you find a spot and have the opportunity to pull through to an adjacent one, drive up halfway and stop on the line, taking both.

Rule No. 4: As you pull into a spot, if you see that the space ahead of you is empty and you see another driver signaling to take it, pull though and take it from him.

Rule No. 5: Always park close enough to the adjacent car so that the other driver must grease up with Vaseline to squeeze into his or her car.

Rule No. 6: When getting out of your car, hit the adjacent vehicle with your door really hard.

Rule No. 7: When driving through the parking lot, ignore the painted lanes and drive diagonally from one end to another at a high rate of speed.

Rule No. 8: When stopped in front of a store and waiting for a friend/relative to make a purchase, make sure that you are stopped in the middle of the road. The same rule applies to picking up and discharging passengers.

Rule No. 9: When a vehicle from the opposite direction is signaling and waiting for a parking space, position your car so that you are in his way and let the car behind you take it.

Rule No. 10: If you have handicapped license plates, use up a regular parking spot.

Rule No. 11: If you hit the adjacent car with your door and leave a dent,  wait for a car, which is painted the same color as yours, to drive down the aisle looking for a place to park. Then back out, giving up your spot like "Mr. Good Guy," and park somewhere else.

Rule No. 12: If the vehicle in front of you stops to let a pedestrian cross or another vehicle turn, pull into the lane of opposite traffic and attempt to pass him.

"Sorry Frenchfry, you are banned from posting and sending personal messages on this forum.
This ban is not set to expire."

No emails, no warnings, no communication whatsoever...just that ban

May be what happened to the other libs as well.

I guess disabling the report to admin link only on the lib side was indicative of the slanted games they play.

Enjoy your spoon-fed Faux News type right-wing echo-chamber.

Edited to add:

This is the only way to answer some of the questions posed:

1) I did nothing to warrant the banishment, it's political.

2) It's the router that's blocked but considering all the nonsense right-wing games being played by those running the site...it's just not worth it to bypass the banishment block.

3) The moron stalkers from MT contemplating a visit will be considered a threat and can expect to have a bad day if they act upon those idiotic thoughts.

Fractured Carols

No one can fracture a Christmas carol better than a kid. 
Sing along with these new takes on old favorites:

     - Deck the Halls with Buddy Holly

     - We three kings of porridge and tar

     - On the first day of Christmas my tulip gave to me

     - Later on we'll perspire, as we dream by the fire.

     - He's makin a list, chicken and rice.

     - Noel. Noel, Barney's the king of Israel.

     - With the jelly toast proclaim

     - Olive, the other reindeer.

     - Frosty the Snowman is a ferret elf, I say

     - Sleep in heavenly peas

     - In the meadow we can build a snowman,
        Then pretend that he is sparse and brown

     - You'll go down in listerine

     - Oh, what fun it is to ride with one horse, soap and hay

     - O come, froggy faithful

     - You'll tell Carol, "Be a skunk, I require"

     - Good tidings we bring to you and your kid.

Christmas Is....

       1. A wobbly tree stand.

       2. A week of inspiration and morality on TV screens that are filled with crime and violence the other 51.

       3. Having to tear open that gift you wrapped so beautifully because you just remembered the price tag was still on it.

       4. Trying to explain to a bright four-year-old how it's possible to pass six Santa Clauses in one block.

       5. When you get a dozen calendars in the mail... and on January 1st, you can't find a single one.

       6. When you discover some idiot put a trunk on tree decorations you stored so carefully last year.

       7. Trying to wrap a bicycle so nobody can tell what it is.

       8. When you can't walk into the Living Room for all the toys, and your kids say, "Is that ALL?"

       9. Frantic last-minute shopping when a gift arrives from a relative you forgot.

     10. When, while you're looking for a salesman, somebody buys the great tree you picked out.

     11. When kids who don't believe in Santa Claus any more ask what he's going to bring them.

     12. When you're surprised with a bunch of cards from the very same people you finally decided to cut from your Christmas card list this year.

      13. The end of two weeks of courteous smiles from tip-hungry people who are sourpusses the rest of the year.

     14. Carefully matching the price of the gift you're giving this year to the gift you got last year.

     15. When you can't find the cards you bought for half-price at that "White Elephant Sale" last January.

     16. Giving your kids money so they can buy you a present.

     17. When your wife tells you to "surprise" her... and then complains when you buy her an outboard motor.

     18. Having to watch your third child in that same old school "Christmas Pageant".

     19. When you burn all the wrappings and then discover you can't find the 20-dollar bill you got as a present.

     20. When you go to your 18th Office Christmas Party, and the Big Boss asks you your name for the 18th time.

     21. When the Grandparents bring the very same toys you swore you'd never let your children have.

     22. When you buy your dog a neat toy out of your own money, and he won't play with it.

     23. When you suddenly discover that all the cards you had printed and all the envelopes you finally addressed are not the same size.
