Don't put your used clothing in the big Pink Boxes!

As reported by By George Brennan, of Cape Cod Online, your donations may not be going to the needy people you THINK they are. :(

It seems your donations are going to a group that is selling them for profit... shame!

Farting Around :)

Okay, I admit it, I was just typing in random words to see where they would take me.
That's when I came upon this hilarious guide.
You can read more if you like, HERE.

Enjoy. ;)

Survival Guide for Taking a Dump at Work.

Memorize these definitions and pooping at work will become a pure pleasure.

ESCAPEE: A fart that slips out while taking a leak at the urinal or forcing poop in a stall. This is usually accompanied by a sudden wave of panic/embarrassment. This is similar to the hot flash you receive when passing an unseen police car & speeding. If you release an escapee, do not acknowledge it. Pretend it did not happen. If you are standing next to the farter at the urinal, pretend that you did not hear it. No one likes an escapee, it is uncomfortable for all involved. Making a joke or laughing makes both parties feel uneasy.

JAILBREAK (Used in conjunction with escapee): When forcing a poop, several farts slip out at a machine gun's pace. This is usually a side effect of diarrhea or a hangover. If this should happen do not panic, remain in the stall until everyone has left the bathroom so to spare everyone the awkwardness of what just occurred.

COURTESY FLUSH: The act of flushing the toilet the instant the nose cone of the poop log hits the water and the poop is whisked away to an undisclosed location. This reduces the amount of air time the poop has to stink up the bathroom. This can help you avoid being caught doing the WALK OF SHAME.

WALK OF SHAME: Walking from the stall, to the sink, to the door after you have just stunk-up the shitter. This can be a very uncomfortable moment if someone walks in and busts you. As with all farts, it is best to pretend that the smell does not exist. Can be avoided with the use of a COURTESY FLUSH.

OUT OF THE CLOSET POOPER: A colleague who poops at work and is damn proud of it. You will often see an Out of the Closet Pooper enter the bathroom with a newspaper or magazine under their arm. Always look around the office for the Out OF THE CLOSET POOPER before entering the bathroom.

THE POOPING FRIENDS NETWORK (PFN): This is a group of coworkers who band together to ensure emergency pooping goes off without incident. This group can help you to monitor the whereabouts of OUT OF THE CLOSET POOPERS and identify SAFE HAVENS.

SAFE HAVEN: A seldom used bathroom somewhere in the building where you can least expect visitors. Try floors that are predominantly of the opposite sex. This will reduce the odds of a pooper of your sex entering the bathroom.

TURD BURGLAR: A pooper who does not realize that you're in the stall and tries to force the door open. This is one of the most shocking and vulnerable moments that occur when taking a dump at work. If this occurs, remain in the stall until the TURD BURGLAR leaves. This way you will avoid all uncomfortable eye contact. TURD BURGLARS have been know to cause premature pinchage, which inevitably causes you to pinch one off in the middle.

CAMO-COUGH: A phony cough which alerts all new entrants into the bathroom that you are in a stall. This can be used to cover-up a WATERMELON or to alert potential TURD BURGLARS. Very effective when used in conjunction with an ASTAIRE.

ASTAIRE: This is a subtle toe-tap that is used to alert all potential TURD BURGLARS that you are occupying a stall. This will remove all doubt that the stall is occupied. If you hear an ASTAIRE, leave the bathroom immediately so the pooper can poop in peace.

WATERMELON: A turd that creates a loud splash when hitting the toilet water. This is also an embarrassing incident. If you feel a WATERMELON coming on, create a diversion. See CAMO-COUGH.

HAVANA OMELET: A load of diarrhea that creates a series of loud splashes in the toilet water. Often accompanied by an escapee. Try using a CAMO-COUGH with an ASTAIRE.

UNCLE TED: A bathroom user who seems to linger around forever. Could spend extended lengths of time in front of the mirror or sitting on the pot. An UNCLE TED makes it difficult to relax while on the crapper, as you should always wait to drop your load when the bathroom is empty. This benefits you as well as the other bathroom attendees.

FLY BY: The act of scouting out a bathroom before pooping. Walk in, check for other poopers. If there are others in the bathroom, leave and come back again. Be careful not to become a FREQUENT FLYER. People may become suspicious if they catch you constantly going into the bathroom.

Touched by gangs

An Internet friend of mine, here on the Cape,  is asking for prayers for her two nephews, who were jumped by some gang members in Fairhaven(not a very appropriate name in this instance) this past Friday night. My friends son was supposed to go with them to see a HipHop concert, but circumstances prevented him... and thankfully, so. The nephews were stabbed numerous times... one died that night, and the other is in critical condition.

I just don't get the pull of gangs, especially here on the Cape. I know there are some wangsters here (wanna-be gangsters), my younger  foster son is one. He plasters his MySpace with pictures of himself, adorned with bandannas of a particular color, striking a pose, with fingers contorted to show his particular "affiliation". It is with great relief, that he has not found anyone else here to bang with, and our family, and his have been able to keep him occupied with wholesome activities, like Boy Scouts, fishing and the Civil Air Patrol. Since he's been with us, his "gang talk" has considerably diminished, and I am grateful.

Tasers have come to the Cape

It was only a matter of time before tasers made their way into the hands of our local police. What do you think?

Two-alarm house fire in Truro

My husband, Jeff, took this pic... he was there, volunteering with the Red Cross.

TRURO - A two-alarm fire has gutted a house in Truro Thursday afternoon. The fire broke out at 32 Town Hall Road sometime around 3:20 p.m. Reports say an elderly woman lived at house and was not injured. The house is believed to be a total loss. Firefighters from across the outer Cape responded to bring in water by tanker to help quell the flames while others covered empty stations. No word yet on a cause. The American Red Cross also provided rehab to firefighters on scene. Photo courtesy of Jeff Stranger.

Animals are people, too.

I just finished posting a comment to an article I read on Salon...
It made me catch my surprise, horror and shame.

To me, the worse part about the consumption of animals is, I feel horrible knowing how animals in this country are raised and slaughtered, and yet, I still eat meat and prepare it for my family. Meat is the centerpiece of my families diet. We eat a lot less of it than we used to, mostly for health reasons, but what will it take for me to, once and for all, remove it from the table?

I saw this on the news, so it's real... I'm in!

I signed up... instead of donating to the state lottery, I'll spend my $3 a week on this site, and get money back when I shop online, too. Take a look, and see what you think. :)

Someone will win a $1 Million Jackpot this Sunday!

Do you want to win $1 Million?

I just joined this club that is giving away $1 million this week and it offers "the best odds ever of winning $1 million." We also get incredible deals every day, huge cash-back rewards and lots of other cool stuff.

What the experts have to say about our incredible odds...
Richard McGowan, Ph.D., a noted professor of statistics at Boston College and a nationally recognized expert in gaming says, "These are extremely good odds in comparison to those given in other sweepstakes games and much better than any state lottery. In fact, to my knowledge, these are the best odds ever to win a $1 million jackpot."

There is a free One Week Trial , and if you join now using this invitation link, we both double our chances of winning the weekly $1 Million Jackpot.

The Parade between two storms...

It rained all night, and it's supposed to rain again this afternoon thru midnight... and it's drizzly and grey this morning, but it looks like the St. Patty's Day Parade in Yarmouth is still a go! Jeff left a few minutes ago to the Red Cross Chapter House to get the URV ready to serve up hot chocolate and coffee to the parade participants, which I'm sure will be very welcome in this raw weather. Hopefully, the heavy rain and winds will hold off until the parade is over. Maybe a splash of Irish whiskey in that coffee would be nice. :)
