‎90 Day Notice

I have thought long and hard about the upcoming election in 2012…

Over the last year, I have been watching many different formats and venues for who I would like to elect…I do not want my next president to be a politician…much like the last few, I feel it would be a waste of our time and money…look at who the democrats are offering…Obama again…really…he has not been able to do much except spend a helluva lot of money vacationing, while the rest of the country hit poverty levels unseen since the great depression…has anyone thought about the pathetic healthcare bill that has now been found unconstitutional and is costing us millions, mean while no one (even those with insurance) can afford healthcare…not to mention NO JOBS…do not misunderstand me, I am proud to be American and will kill or die for any president as it is my duty and I am a woman of honor…I am just greatly saddened by feeling helpless as we run like a freight train at becoming a third world country…what I have seen offered by the republicans is not much better…Romney fucked up Massachusetts…why, really would I want him for president…Bachman shows up just before the election and wants in…Hmmm…can we say tardy to the party…I love Sarah Palin, but she has been trashed too much in the public eye

I am an Independent voter…I got this way honestly because of my high school teachers…I was taught to choose the right man/woman for the job…parties only had their own concerns at heart, not so much the good of the people

First…I had to sit and think about what I really wanted and expected from a president…what do we the people need our elected official to do…


2) If I can not watch a ‘Winston Cup Race’ or the ‘Bush Grand Nationals’ because of the message to children…I want ALL prescription medication taken off my TV…kids do not need to be prescription drug addicts either…we are the ONLY country in the world that allows such adverts

3) Kids need education…music, art, PE are all parts of that and should be supported…we need to raise children not criminals

4) The words I want to hear and see preformed are work ethic, duty, honor…it has been a while since the White House has seen any of those

5) Legalize pot…I want to see real criminals in jail…alcohol is legal, which on so many levels is much worse for the body…in several countries they have proven wrong the propaganda that we were always fed on this issue and I am tired of paying to house some guy in jail on such a stupid issue, while another teacher gets laid off

6) Criminals and Cops do not need to be TV stars…NO more reality TV ride alongs with the cops…NO more TV cameras in the court rooms…baby killers, child molesters, rapists and murderers’ should not be where children can see or hear about them…not to mention how many people end up depressed over the issues...

7) The FCC again needs to step up its game…ethics seems to be a big problem anymore (remember George Carlin and ‘the 7 things you can’t say on TV’)…cable or not…why is Hollywood not paying fines…if you want to buy a ‘playboy/hustler package’…I have no problem…it should not be part of regular cable though…cussing to cuss is wrong…prescription drugs being pushed is wrong

8) Healthcare is in a sad and horrid state in this country…workers should be allowed to get national licenses…the federal government needs to do better than double talk so the insurance companies can be even more greedy, they need to give Medicare a fair and impartial price list…I will stop here as I could fill a page with my thoughts on this issue

9) Presidents are only allowed pension for 5 years after they leave office...only 2 vacations a year, no more than 7 days each...etc

I could go on, but would not want to bore you…after thinking on this and so much more…I had to think about who could really accomplish these goals…who would be like Roosevelt and place the country before himself or his needs…who could man/woman up to the plate and do what is RIGHT and not just what is easy…

The First thing that comes to mind is Donald Trump…Hold On…I do not want him for president…I would not want to bruise his ego, but I want him for Vice President…He is a very important man…he would still need to run the world of Trump and to ask him not to would be rude (he would lose way more money than we could afford to pay him as president)…I think it would be AMAZING to have someone such as him to help the president though…also if anything happened to the president he would be able to step in with NO problems…in my life, I have seen this man lose everything and come back stronger than ever…he would be a HUGE asset to getting this country back on its feet...great guy...even though he has exwifes...he has taken good care of them and his children...says a lot about who he is...

For president, I have 2 men in mind…funny, both are Alaska fisherman…both are moral and have done well by their respective families…both already have money so greed is not a big factor…both have proven to put the best interests of those around them first…both have been in the media quite a bit

My first choice you already know, but have not paid attention…his family became famous because of his wife’s Vice Presidential nomination in the last election…he is Todd Palin…he is a quiet man, but OMG is he the real deal…good business man…am I ever sure he could deal with other countries, he already does…as an Iron Man competitor (Alaska winner), he understands humility…he puts up with Sarah (a strong woman who has been put through the political wringer) and the media…which shows he has strength and patients…the media has already dished the dirt on the family…he also thinks deeply before he acts or speaks…and his wife is aware of what a slip is for and how to use it...They would make a great First Family

My second choice many of you watch on Discovery…Sig Hansen of the Northwestern…again a tight family man…over the last few years we have seen him learn some hard lessons and make tough choices…I have to admit, his stable path has impressed me…he is not afraid of work and not about to take crapp…I really feel he could put the moral back bone back into this country…I am sure Edgar could captain the boat while Sig sat in The White house…he has proven already that he will do what is right not just what is easy (on and off the boat)…here too we would have a great first family...

If you have better ideas, I am listening…if not I will write in my final choice of one of the above as I need to vote for who is right…not just who is popular…I want the country to belong to the people again and I do not think we can do it by putting anymore politicians in the job…the greed factor is just way too high and it seems the day they take the oath they forget who put them and why they are there...

Check out the men I am handing you…stop…think…and then tell me what you think and or who you are watching...

Blessed Be,

Sugarcoating Hell

Good Day To You,

Sorry for sounding so terse…I am in a great deal of pain...I have 1 broken and one cracked tooth…my jaw is swollen and I look like I have been in a prize fight…I am on antibiotics…the dentists here in Florida are outrageous in their prices…I want both pulled…I could see $250-300…the cheapest I could find was $800 (this did not cover any anesthesia…not even Novocain)…so I have been trying to get into the welfare dentist…nearest appt is 10/24/11…I have been calling sick call every morning

With only one massage client this week, it really makes it hard to pay the bills…I am trying to stay upbeat…reading and trying a lot of new ideas…boy howdy, has the face of business and landscape marketing changed over the last 3 years…sadly, I have watched many solo therapists go under as of late or move to another area to get work…

I just finished ‘Intro to Psychology’…I got an A…the class sucked…all they taught was straight conventional medicine, what a bummer…no talk of the Asclepius or of Sir Flinders Petrie or any of the ‘fun stuff from Freud’…our discussion questions seemed to be more for controversy than for psychological endowment and or knowledge…I guess some classes are just required…although since my major is alt meds, I wish they would have let that dept handle this as opposed to gen edu…as then it would be handled with an open mind…this does not mention how insulting the class is to the Pagan religion…not to mention almost ½ chapter of the text goes on about astrology (and not in a good way)…at the end I felt the whole thing was narrow minded tripe…why should I have to learn outdated methodology and thought process…again, some things are required…the teacher and classmates were cool

Yes, it is still over 100f almost every day…we have had very little rain…one of the few storms we did have, threw a bolt of lightening at my pool…split the side and blew the pump…since this is most of the exercise I get (I have foot problems)…I am heartsick…I made over 700 calls to every client I had a file on in hopes of earning enough to replace it…here in Florida so many have been laid off…in 7 days I have had 1 client…until things pick up, I will mourn my pool and pray I do not blow up like a balloon

Chris has been patient with me…though I put the tobacco down a while ago; my writing has been very dark…I think Poe would admire it…so we have focused on the sweet new baby and Chris’s painting, this way I have some positive to outweigh some of that ugly negative energy

My friend Rose took me to China this morning…okay, how odd does that sound…here is how we did it…she found this cool power point…she had e-mailed it to me…I called her to babble about something (probably about Mason) and she had me check the e-mail…we did each slide together…I felt like I was on the ancient temple complex with her off this giant twisty road…I told her it was best we went that way because you could never get me on that tram or the official first ‘government wasted money on this road’ award winner…I had such a good time with her…I am so glad we went

My parents started their second honeymoon last week for their 50th anniversary and so far it sounds like Murphy’s Law is in full effect…mom need surgery on her hernia…the car is having problems…add to that hotel and weather issues….I really do not think it is the trip they hoped for

Walter and I both went through the stomach flu last week…it is horrid…chicken broth, jello, toast with clear jellies, beef broth, crackers…until you can hold food down…then add bananas or oranges or grilled cheese…until you are strong enough for a meal

I have to admit it really bothers me that Brighthouse thinks it is proper to make a baby killer a star…OMG…first Osama…then Whitey…who do you think is next DB Cooper or Hoffa…they are sending troops home…I want the troops back, but where will they go to work…Barak Obama reminds me much of Charlie Christ, at the last minute…when they want to get re-elected, suddenly they remember how to work…I see NO one on the horizon that I would vote for either, which I really find scary…Can you believe people in Bradenton are so very bored they are actually worried about horse poop…seriously…I just can make this stuff up…if you are in Europe please wash your hands and food prior to cooking it and for god sake cook it proper…E Coli is running rampant and killing people over 50 at this point…there is also a new breed of scarlet fever that we have not antibiotic to fix yet…so all over the world please remember the above items

Maybe it’s the heat…maybe it’s the pain…I may be feeling….shall we say a bit female…I am mourning the pool and just depressed in general…I will get over it at some point…thank you for understanding

100 Degrees Fahrenheit (39.77c) and Ready to Rant

Good Morrow,

I have so many things that I want to speak about…thank you for letting me bend you ear…and no I do not mind if you pick this up and put it down a few times to digest some of its info contained…it is day 45 with no tobacco, could be a but know me Dale has it written somewhere

Massage has been well…I have been looking for ways to get new customers…if you have ideas (other than craigslist or the newspaper) please e-mail me…Florida is severely economically depressed…I have hopes it will change soon…our new governor, Rick Scott, is working very hard…I have to admit I watch this guy with a microscope (I do not trust him), I also have to admit he has been working to make the state better for everyone…though I do feel he should have done better for the teachers

It has been a proven fact that when money is spent on education in several cultures and societies around the world that crime rates drop and unemployment rates also drop…side note- the culture of the society grows too

In ‘Psychology’ class this week…I have been having a rough time…I do not expect to agree with everyone or have them agree with me all the time…really…what fun is there in life without a little spirited debate…as you know I have walked thru HELL…not proud of it, but it is what it is…many people get angry with me when they can not prove me wrong and get a little crazy…okay…lets understand each other…I am not omnipotent…I have done things wrong so many times and paid dearly…that I now know how to do it properly

As many of you know, I have bounced around and now have friends all over the world…my thoughts tend to run deep…I think of things…the wind that goes into Gahanna every year carries Malaria…Russian storms that effect the UK…how polluted the Ganges is by the time it dumps in the ocean…where in the world are they building new medical gadgets…many years ago I explained to my children that we would be at a global economy before my life is over…I often wonder where we, the United States, will end up in such a case…sadly I think not well unless we put more into education and ethics

In Boudica, we have just received our second installment of the Benuska book…really neat…Chris and I have been posting Mason...he is so cute…I am kind of jealous of Rose as she gets to play with him…being a pond away sux!!!!!

I bought the cheap blue hard plastic pools for the dogs…Chole loves it and like a child in the bath, I have to fight to get him out…just like people, please think of your animals in this extreme heat…I have several fans at floor level…keep the water bowl clean several times a day…keep floors swept and mopped as this will keep down bacteria and fleas…it will also be cooler for them…since I have a tile floor and a way to keep them in the kitchen, I also give them ice cubes…all except Blue love to eat watermelon…I might be the crazy dog lady but, if you are under rubble you pray they come get me

The Circle has been spinning…new births happening every few days…Maggie, Martha, Janet and Mason were all born this last week…we are fast coming to the Midsummer Celebration…what do you have planned? Alison's baby will be in shy town, maybe I will get to play with him...her ultrasound picture is so far they have come fom those fuzzy black and white poloroid pics they gave me back in the day

The garden looks tired…the heat is kicking it in the ass…if you have a big freezer you may want to buy a few bags of ice…1-2 bag(s) of ice=1/4 acre grass…I do not recommend it for plants as it can put them in shock, but has been working great on the lawn…also beats huge water bill…I usually water around 8 pm…I mulch heavy at the end of spring…all of this help the garden and your pocketbook too…do not forget to get out there an compost

Did you laugh today…okay…picture a naked rock;)

Walter and I had a great time Kayking in and around Crystal River...I can not wait to take Chole...we had a great was quite inexpensive...we rented from Crystal River Kayak...great people to deal was clean and safe...

Healthcare is a subject near and dear to me…I work very hard to give EVERY client I have my best…I also believe some of the best answers are the simplest and one should start at the bottom and work their way to the top…it is my feeling that as a society, it is something we must fight for…we should not want to be continually be doped up (even if we are in pain)…I want to yell ‘IT IS OKAY TO BE WELL!!!’…it bothers me to see how many people are on what I would call useless prescriptions and their minor illness can be handled with food or some other more natural substance…do not misunderstand me, If I need a script, I will take it, but I prefer to try the least invasive and best acting treatment first…it is usually cheaper and better for the body…you are not being insulting to talk to your doctor…it is what they are there for…he or she should know and understand the food/herb/prescription/treatment that is prescribed to you…if not, I suggest you find one who does

For Boaters or people who live in the hot climate it is time to buy ‘Emetrol’. It works great for sun sick or sea sick. Walter who normally works 3rd shift thought to help me mow the lawn (takes 4 hours in the sun)….the next day he prayed to the porcelain Gods until I got him some, he was sooo sun sick. It is also great when kids get that summer flu. I always wondered why they don’t use this stuff on that ‘Deadliest Catch’ show to help them greenhorn folks…just a thought… for chemo and aids patients too

So as you can see my mind goes on hundred directions at once…does it piss anyone else off that they have turned this lame child killer into a TV star…I understand she is Christian…can’t we just send her to meet St Peter early, because anyone who hurts children aint getting into heaven…at a time when teachers are being laid off, what up with this million dollar dog and pony show?

I guess I have been harping on education…my kids are grown and my grandchildren are well taken care of…so you wonder why…the kids in school today, 20 years from now will start running the place…it frightens me to think they will be dumber than a box of rocks…Dave has reminded me that schools must move forward…please help a teacher, a class, a school…money is cool, but time is better…nothing beats investing time in children...if all you can do is soup labels or those pencil point things please turn them into the front office at any school...Dale's neice gets mine for her class...I beg for every teacher in this country...they need help...1 good teacher at the start of life will keep several children out of trouble

May you all be blessed,
