Hello How are you?

Hello Friend,

How are you? I am doing fine, I got some bad news today. A friend of mine told me she has cancer. I don't know what to say to her. I told her of course, that everything would be okay. I want to believe that and I have to believe that. But I am scared. I am taking a stance against this disease, it has killed people I love. It has changed people I love. IT has touched way too many of us. I am not sure how we can fight this demon..................Oh yes I know............PRAY, prayer is the only thing that can cure cancer.

So my dear friend, I would like to ask everyone who reads this Blog to cut and paste and tell the world about this prayer, Let's stop cancer.

Lord I pray to you
I give you the authority
For my Life and My Heart
CANCER, I know you can abolish it, you can kill it
You can stomp it from our lives.
Thank you for the doctors who are experts
Thank you for the medicine that keeps it away
We thank you for giving us the weapons needed to fight
we need your help
We need your intervention, only the way you can do it
We need you to save us
Thank Lord for this gift

Little Dog v. Big Dog

Is there a difference between a little dog and a big dog? Well the obvious answer would be heck yeah. But really is there? Beside the obvious.

Little chihuahua v. a South African Boer Boel (by the way is a 150 lb dog full grown). Both need to learn to go potty outside, both need to learn where to eat, what is okay to eat, sit, stay, wait etc. So both are dogs. They both need to learn the same lessons in life, so far the only difference is size.

Now you are walking down the street and you come across a sweet little 3 and a half pound chihuahua and OMG how cute is that. You stop, can I pet your dog, is he or she nice, because you never know what you are going to get with a chihuahua. They are most likely going to be protective of there owners, we have all seen it, those nasty, nasty Chihuahuas. Okay same situation with the 150 pound Boer Boel, Holy S**T, OMG, what kind of dog is that???? Most people are very interested in this dog because quite frankly how often do you see one. But most will be afraid. Would you? I would not be but I am very into dogs and happen to be very close to a chihuahua and a South African Boer Boel. But that's me, the average person is not exposed to these extremes.

But I am off the point, are they different? Just because one is small and one is big. Are they different because they were bred for different things decades ago? Most dogs don't do their original jobs they were bred for. Are they different? I don't think so. There is one big difference and only one, (in this humble blogger opinion) Size!!!!!! I can still pick up my 3 and 1/2 pound chihuahua TJ (Theodore James) and cannot pick my 150 pound Boer Boel Tank (aka Tanky Boy). But to me they are the same. I expect them both to have manners in public, I expect them both to sit on command and I understand they both need their Leader to love them.

So the moral of this story children is, teach your dogs manners, they will love you for it.

Franky's is back

For all you Venturians and all you who come to Ventura to eat. I am here to tell you that Franky's is back, with a new name. The Dume Room, I know you are all saying what the heck are you talking about???? Well for all you locals, you remember Chris she used to own Franky's when it was the place to go to for breakfast, then she sold it to some idiots who ruined it. They went down, talk about a sinking ship. For some of you, you will remember the spectacle that went down at Franky's late at night, watching the plates fly between lovers. Oh my. Talk of the town.

Well no more, it is now owned by this cute couple, with a 4 year old little girl. If you go in there you will see her, she loves to talk to the patrons. Adorable. But the best part is that Chris is back. Her beautiful menu of curry chicken salad and turkey bacon available again for the heart healthy. Soups she used to make from scratch. Yes finally something new in Ventura that is old. After all the businesses that have gone away, it is refreshing to have an old one back.

Everybody run don't walk back to (Franky's) Dume Room, same place, same food, different name.

Two thumbs up.

I just don't get it

I have not ranted in forever, so I am due. Okay people what do we think of the new health bill? Quite frankly I don't really understand it. I understand two things, One, it is law to have health insurance now, two we cannot be excluded for previous illnesses.

All right, So the thing I do understand is that now the government says I have to have medical insurance. But I don't work for a company who has insurance and neither does my husband. Okay it seems like we are in the same place we were before. Can't afford insurance, but now it is the damn law to get it. Oh don't get me wrong I would love to have medical insurance and they say there will be programs for those who can't afford insurance, but I guarantee we will not qualify for THAT program. Gees, a girl just can't get ahead.

Okay, as though this is not bad enough. Have you heard about the 20 cent tax on plastic bags at the grocery store? I am one of those people that carries reusable bags. But when I go big shopping I don't have enough of those. I guess I am going to start carrying a suitcase around, a really big one. Ridiculous..........The government screws up and is looking to nickel and dime us to death. I mean how many things can they tax, how much money do you really think is taken from us by taxes? Think about it, phone tax, hotel tax, service tax, cable tax, tax tax tax. Seriously, add it up I bet it would be in the hundreds per month and thousands per year. Gees no wonder a girl can't get ahead.

Come people don't you have an opinion? I am looking forward to hearing from you.

The thoughts, The thoughts

Oh My, The thoughts going through my mind. Okay first, I HATE people who throw puppies away. I don't get it, what are you accomplishing????????? I think people who can do that are pure evil. Just evil.

Second, I believe that restaurant food should taste good. Unfortunately, it does not. By the way never go to the Mexican place at the Harbor in Ventura............Never. When food is bad you should not pay for it. EVER

Third, Family is important, don't ever Dis your family. If you are lucky enough to have family then no matter what is going on, forgive each other and go on. Realize there is a greater good. Family means forgetting past crap.

Fourth, spend the money on a moment. Go away with your loved one, enjoy something new. Even take a night. Live with the people you love.

Okay these were thoughts, talk to guys soon
