Wow big lottery jackpots bring out the stupid people who spend all their damn money on a shit load of tickets instead of on what’s necessary in life.

I guess GREED is well and strong in this world today, especially here in the great USA.

I don’t brag about buying a shit load of tickets and post pictures and shit like that on Facebook.  That’s just STUPID!

At least I know where my happiness lies, and it lies with the love of myself, my family and those of friends who ACTUALLY CARE, not those who PRETEND to CARE.  I also know my happiness is in knowing that God loves me no matter what.

MONEY doesn’t make anyone REALLY happy just GREEDY and STUPID.  I’m happy with what my man can get me and all but we also don’t splurge every last cent we have on buying a shit load of lottery tickets, that if not winning tickets become more litter for the garbage and the world.  You people are really stupid thinking that all those tickets might be lucky when before you know it you’ll get a kick in the ass cause guess what YOU DID NOT WIN!

You could have spent that money on something else that would be more important, like food or even something for your pets or you children, or even helping out a family member, but NOOOO you’d rather spend it on litter which is what non-winning tickets turn into.  Nothing but trash.

Man I hope all you silly people out there fall flat on your ass when you LOSE cause it’s going to be very hard for ANYONE to win, but keep spending your money frivolously, cause that’s all you are doing, you are no better then the government who spends our own money that we deserve and need on other frivolous shit.  Have fun and I hope the ground isn’t too hard on your ass when you fall to the ground and blow a fit for not winning a stupid lottery jackpot, but if it is hard when you hit, tough shit you deserve it.

That’s all I have to say to you stupid people out there.

Well with all the wind yesterday that we had here and the gusts were up in the 30s or so, a 4 acre burn area quickly turned into a 44 acre burn within an hour, and now it’s over 4000 acres of land on fire. Man it’s going to be a bad year, this year for Colorado in that area.  We are so dry from the very little snow and rain over the winter it’s not funny.  Hopefully we won’t have to worry about water restrictions going up this summer.  That would seriously suck.

Well thankfully today the wind is barely blowing and they were able to call in fire air support to start dumping water on the fire, so hopefully it will soon be under control.  Also hopefully they will be able to get the fire retardant out there to help get this fire under control as well.

One who has come from Arkansas definitely understands fire hazards and warnings out there, cause Arkansas was basically nothing but pine trees from one side to the other, hence one of the reasons that the state is also known as the Natural State cause of all those forests and more out there.  I was living in the Oauchita Mountain foot hills back in them days in a trailer park along Hwy 7 leading towards Hot Springs.  Talk about nothing but trees and hills around with few streams rambling through.  When a fire hit our home was always in danger of being taken over by flames, but thankfully during the times I lived there we never had one except up on West Mountain that went down the hill towards the backyards of the homes that were in Hot Springs, so I sympathize with those people that have lost their homes to wild fires and the likes.

I hope we do not lose lives with these fires and God be with the fire fighters and other authority figures out there dealing with the massive wild fire.  There is some good that comes from this fire, and that is the dead pine trees that the pine beetles have killed off and will be taken care of, but the loss of life and homes and memories isn’t.

You know what really sucks is when you get insomnia.

Insomnia is the worse sleeping disorder anyone can have, and I do have a mild case of it, but I’ve got family members that are much worse off with insomnia.

I will either do XBOX, be online via the computer or be up reading a book or two.

I hate having even a mild case of insomnia, but some times it just can’t be helped.  I also do not want to take anything to help me sleep, cause the one pill I do take with a sleep aid, makes me feel like hell the next day and lingers to long.  So I just read or something to wear my brain down to shut it off :).

Anyways, I am now going to head back to bed.  Sleep well to those who are still up, and have a great day for those who just woke up or are over the date and time line :).

Well I went and took a couple of pictures of my new fan, which I put together with very little help :). I love it when I can do that. I’ll just post one picture of the fan :).

My last fan I had bit the dust over a year ago.  It was a standing Oscillating Fan, where this one is a desk top fan :).  It’s also all metal, which is better then the all plastic ones out there :).

Metal Fan

This little fan is definitely doing it’s job, and I love it! This will also help me deal with the summer heat, cause I don’t want to always run the AC since I’ve moved to Colorado.

Now when I lived in Arkansas, there was no way in hell that we could survive the summer without the AC’s running.  The humidity down there was horrible along with the awful heat indexes! Ugh, talk about no sooner you step outside your clothes stick to your body cause of the instant sweat that gathers on your skin just from the humidity alone.  Also it don’t help much when your temps get into the 100s down there, and then add in the heat indexes over 100. EW! Anyways, I’m very happy to be living in Colorado because there is like NO humidity.  It’s dry and very comfortable, though you can see the dry air affect on your skin, that’s what moisturizing lotion is for :).  I’ll take this over humidity any day, but sadly I’ll have to deal with some humidity when I go visit family cause they live in Illinois and Arkansas.  I’ll suffer the humidity just to see my family and loved ones :).

Enjoy!

Well today is a very windy and gusty day in Denver, CO.  It is causing issues with fires and with the power around certain areas, so there are going to be brownouts and blackouts from time to time.

So far, my sister has been having brownouts, while the radio station I’m listening too has lost power twice in less then 5 minutes.  Yep Mother Nature is having a hay day with everyone here in Denver.  Thankfully it hasn’t happened to my area yet, but ours might be less do to our power lines and such being buried under ground.

The weather is very beautiful here today with it being 80 degrees outside.  It’s wonderful and relaxing, at least for me, but not for those who will most likely have to be out and about taking care of forest fires, wild fires and grass fires.  We do need some rain though cause it’s getting very parched out there moisture wise.  I just wish La Nina would just go away, but we already know we can’t stop these cycles from happening.

Wind Chime and Pine Tree

Windy

This is a picture of what the wind is doing outside the patio door.  It’s blowing pretty hard out there.  I’m think today here in Denver cold almost put the “Windy City” to shame over in Illinois :). People are enjoying this day though, I’m seeing lots of people on their bikes and walking instead of driving, but this usually does happen here in Colorado during the Spring, Summer and Fall seasons :).  I can’t wait to be able to take a break on an actual weekend and go driving up in the mountains just to look around and enjoy the beauty that is Colorado and the Rocky Mountains.

Enjoy and I’ll be putting up more posts with pictures in it :).

Well yesterday was payday.  He got all the bills paid and the likes.  He also seemed to have a bad day yesterday to the point he was known as grumpy britches to me for a little while lol.

I’m the one that was telling him to chill this time around LOL, so when he got home we got out for a little while.  We stopped at a Taco Bell and ordered some food and we went to sit in a park to eat it and enjoy the beautiful evening as the sun was setting.  I’d ordered one of those new Locos Taco Supreme with a regular taco and and burrito supreme.  OMG the Locos Taco was de-lish! It is the new Doritos nacho cheese shells :).  I will probably get more in the near future 🙂 if they are still around when we go to Taco Bell again :).

After we ate our supper we went on down to the Wal-mart in beautiful small town of Elizabeth, CO and got things there.  It got us both away from the house for a little while.  On the way there I saw a herd of deer in a field, they were walking along a small tree line.  Sadly I saw them a little to late and didn’t get a chance to take a picture of them, plus it was getting a dark and my flash wouldn’t have reached them from the road when they were about half an acre or so away from the road.

I would love to own about 5 or so acres of land, but the only way we could do that would be to win the Powerball, but that pretty much is useless around here when the Powerball is always won on the East Coast and not here in Colorado.  It also doesn’t help when my man wants to wait until it’s in the 100 millions to even buy a ticket.  Yeah I know he does that for a reason cause he says you wouldn’t live long on 40 million, which I think we could, but I wasn’t going to argue with him.  He also doesn’t want to waste a lot of money on it either that could be used for other things.  Oh well I can only dream of ever owning that much land I guess, but it’s a great dream.

Anyways, after the trip he was still in a slight grumpy mood but his mood eventually improved to the point that he started working on getting sissy’s computer system fixed.  He got all the files he needed to transfer, transferred and then he’ll eventually start with doing the rest like replace the mother board of the system with what he bought.  He also will have to do some work for his job from home this weekend as well.

I also started the roast we bought from Wal-Mart around 2 or 3 this morning so it should be ready by the evening so that he won’t have to go out for food for us and take time away from his work to feed us, but as for tomorrow, he will have to go get something for us to eat. 🙂

I had fun getting out of the house, I always have fun, cause it’s a pain in my ass when I don’t and I start getting cabin fever.  Soon enough we will be able to finally go back up into the mountains and look out of the beautiful world around us as it continues to blossom into spring :).

Well lets just say this, Tebow is being traded, first it was to the Jets until the Jets discovered a slight clause in his contract that they would have to pay him 5 million dollars, now they’ve decided NOT to take on Tebow and have stepped back.

Now Jacksonville is back in the running and they REALLY REALLY want him, and I hope that they do get him, cause that would be his home stomping grounds, and I think he will do Jacksonville proud! Go Tebow!  I’d love to see a Bronco and Jaguars game and see who does better.  Tebow has a lot of potential within him if people will just give him time and help him reach that potential. Who ever gets Tebow has so much more potential to reach the Super Bowl then some do.

Yeah Manning is good, but gee don’t get me wrong, the man is 36, was out of football for a whole YEAR and has gone through 4 neck surgeries, but that don’t mean he is up to his power house self that he was when he first started playing for the NFL, but best of luck anyways and it will be the Broncos loss and Elway’s failure if Manning gets hurt and can no longer play.

I will continue to be a fan of Tim Tebow, because he has talent, he is worth it and is a good man and a good role model. Whoever gets Tim Tebow will have a horde of fans to help them along the way, and I’ve got a gut instinct that Tebow will hit the Super Bowl and when he does the Broncos will see what they lost, and I’m not going to feel sorry for them.  They picked, they traded, they made their bed and they’ll have to sleep in it!

Good luck to you Tim Tebow, and know that you have a ton of fans out there that will support you and be there to watch you.  God Bless and I hope the Jaguars will get you :). You will be missed here in Denver by your many fans, but the haters out there are way to far happy that you are gone, cause they can’t see your potential like many of us can.

Well today a lot of things have been happening, one of those things has been happening for a while now.  It seems the Bronco’s have signed on Peyton Manning as their new QB, which means from what I’ve heard that they will be trading Tim Tebow.  This kind of sucks, but I guess is kind of understanding, but still it sucks.  Tebow is a great QB, and I hope if he is being traded that he’ll be going home to Florida.  Apparently he misses his home and the south and Florida.  I hope and pray that he makes it back to Florida where he can once again be happy and be around his roots and his family.  Best of luck and prayers to you Tim Tebow! You will most definitely be missed here in Denver if you do head back home to Florida to one of the teams there.  Hope the Jaguars get you since that seems to be closer to your heart and soul.  God be with you.

Now on to other things :).

Spring is definitely here but some of Colorado is still receiving some snow, but thankfully not us here in Denver.  The sky is bright blue and the sun is bright and warm, sadly though the temp only hit 49 degrees here, but still it’s the typical weather for a Colorado spring! It is so nice to live up here in Denver, CO and I enjoy all of it!  Soon enough we will be hopefully driving up into the mountains to enjoy the wonderful spring weather and watching as the world comes awake from the deep slumber of Old Man Winter! Our weather though will be back up in the 60s and 70s before to long again. 🙂

Another thing that comes with spring though is the pollen that is going rabid around here right now.  The tree pollen is very HIGH and Denver has been on High Pollen Alert for over a week now.  So far I’ve not had any hard effects of Allergies hit me, but I know they are just around the corner.  Thankfully I’ve got Allegra, Sudafed and Zyrtec, and NO I do not mix the allergy pills.  It depends on the state of my sinuses and how I’m feeling which one I will take.  I do know that once I start being hit hard by the pollen and allergies, that I will most likely stick to my 24 hour stuff and not the lower hour stuff.  I only take any of my pills when I absolutely need them and that hasn’t been often yet.

I love spring time but I do not like allergy season that comes with it, but I will suffer through it if I need to.  I thankfully don’t break out in a rash like some people do and the likes.  My allergies ain’t that serious, and I’m thankful I’m up here in Colorado instead of in Arkansas now.  Man my allergies were horrible down there in Arkansas cause there are thousands of pine trees around and not that many here in Colorado.  The pine tree is after all the state tree down there in Arkansas while the dog wood is the state blossom, the diamond the state jewel and the mockingbird the state bird.  The pine tree pollen was murderous on my sinuses and everything while I was living there, I couldn’t even open up the darned windows or door without pollen being blown in and we had to start using the air conditioners earlier then ever down there cause of not only the pollen but the sticky icky humidity.

Let me tell you how bad that pollen was or is, if you have a car and haven’t driven it or washed it yet, when the pine trees pollinated there could be inches of yellow green pollen on the surface, let along that is what we were breathing in down there during the season and when we coughed it up it was a very ugly color and we had to take showers every day just to get the pollen off us, let alone cool down from the humidity.  Which is why I’m not  sad about missing the south, especially Arkansas.  It’s a beautiful place to live, but you have a lot you have to deal with down there during any time of the year from severe weather to humidity and pollen and the likes to ice storms and heat waves.

I’m very happy to live in Colorado, there is hardly if NO humidity here, and the pollen isn’t that bad here, except maybe up in the mountains where all the Ash trees and other trees are at, but still it’s beautiful and breathtaking here in Colorado. I might eventually post some old photos that I made over the years to the posts here in the near future just to show the beauty of the place.  From spring to winter.  Sadly the only summer time pics I might be able to post would be something dealing with fireworks and the likes, but until I’m ready to start doing that, well ya’ll will just have to be satisfied with what I type here. LOL :). Now onto other news :).

Recently there was a major wild grass fire in Eastern Colorado around Yuma.  Apparently some very old homes lived in for generations were caught in the fire and burned down.  Years and memories of their lives gone in a puff of smoke.  We get some powerful winds here and when they start gusting like they do it can get very deadly here.  With the grass still brittle from winter and not yet lush enough for spring everything around here is tinder waiting for one little spark or cigarette to land on it, and when it happens combustion insews and the fire starts eating everything in sight.  Thankfully they were able to contain the fire and get it out, but there were a few firefighters that were injured in the process, and thank God they weren’t any worse then they were and not killed in the flames.  I send my prayers out to those who lost everything and hope that they can recover and make a go at it again. Next news from my end :).

My man and I watched the first show of season 14 Dancing With The Stars last night and man there are some good competition in it this year with some actual STARS involved.  All the ones we watched except for one, will definitely be in the running for that Cheesy Mirror Ball Trophy, so far I’ve got at least 4 couples I’m routing for, but that will change as the season goes on. Best of luck to all couples in Season 14 of Dancing With The Stars! Next on my list :).

Our “cousin” Rikki has adopted a beautiful grey and white kitty who is around 5 months old.  She’s beautiful and adorable.  According to Rikki, Cloud (that’s her cats name), finally came out from under the bed to explore some and eat some.  Rikki also says that Cloud is very talkative and that she and Cloud do converse with each other :).  I don’t know the breed, but she is very beautiful.  Oh don’t take me wrong, our own cat Penny is very special and beautiful to us as well.  We just love animals, especially the cats and dogs.

My man has had his share of exotic pets, as he posted once before on his blog about, but mostly my pets dealt with cats and dogs.  I had dogs my entire life until 1997, then I got me a cat, but we still had dogs as well.  The dogs were my dads of course and mine as well, but they were mostly dads.  We still help my dad out in that area if he needs food for them.  I’ll be meeting more of the extended woof woof family that my dad has gotten since living in Illinois.  I’ll be hopefully seeing him this summer with a number of other family members, including some of my fiancee’s family members.  I hope this summer will be good for us to be able to do this.  I miss my family and it’s been like 2 or 3 years now since I last saw them. Now onto the final news.

My “sister” Naja went to her cardiac doctor the other day, and has now got clearance to be able to get the hysterectomy she seriously needs right now.  I will keep my prayers with her and her family as she goes through each step to get that done and send my love their way.  Love you all!

Sorry about that everyone.  Um lol.  My man decided to read my post and discovered some words that needed to be fixed, so I had to delete the entire post and replace it with a more up to date with correct words in the post! Oh well lol! 🙂 It’s done and I guess from here on out I need to do the post on notepad or notebook to make sure I put the correct words in there before I post from here on out :). LOL.

Ok well for now I think I need to close out this very long winded post that I’ve just done. LOL! 🙂 Hope everyone enjoys the things I’ve posted, and I hope your seasons and weather where you live are treating you well.  God bless everyone!

Finally after my bought of frustration the other day, I’m a little more relaxed.  I actually didn’t run into any drama over XBOX. Thank goodness, but sadly yes we can’t avoid drama for it is a part of our lives.

Penny actually behaved herself yesterday, she didn’t get to Hurricane Penny status that day and was rather relaxed and was enjoying the attention and sunning herself from time to time.  Now as for today, I haven’t seen anything yet, but then Hurricane Penny could show up out of no where and cause chaos again. LOL.  Love that furry, four legged, black and white child (kitty)  of ours 🙂 even if she can be a handful at times :).  Maybe with that big speaker almost falling on her she kind of said whoa I need to chill or not get up there any more for now. hehe :).

Well this morning I went in and got my Pro-Time checked, and it was a 2.7, which is right in the area my doctor wants it to be.  My blood sugar and the likes has been in the 120s but would be better with more sleep :).  I’ve been doing fairly well of late and my blood pressure has been like 90 something over 60 or 70 something :).

Right now I’m relaxing before I check my blood pressure before I start to eat my big breakfast with hot cakes from McDonald’s with one milk and one OJ :).  These are one of the rare occasions that I get the chance to get breakfast.  Usually after the doctor office visit :). My man is on his way into work, and hopefully it is within the time frame he said he’d be out of the office.  He did get all the work or most of the work he was working on last night done, and that’s a good thing.  He even ordered himself some breakfast so we both have breakfast to eat.  He dropped me off at home and then headed out.  🙂

I played plenty on Wizards yesterday and after I got off there with my sister last night, I got my shot and pills taken.  Sadly I got on XBOX for a little while and played for about 2 1/2 or 3 hours, then remembered, damn I have to get my Pro-Time checked in the morning, then got off there and went to bed.  Now it’s time to relax and deal with a few games on Face Book and the likes before I eat.  Until next time (when ever that will be)! 🙂

Ok so now I’m frustrated to the point of crying right now.  Penny has been misbehaving today and she finally made me blow my gasket.  No I didn’t hurt her or anything, but she went and knocked off one of the big speakers in the master bedroom.

Now lets hope she learns not to do that again.  I just hope that my man will be in a good mood to deal with Hurricane Penny.  I’ve had to shut off the master bedroom to keep her out of it, now lets hope her destructive hyper active mood doesn’t wind up destroying our computer network.  I just don’t know what the hell has gotten into her this morning and I don’t even want to find out.  She’s been batting at things again and I haven’t even run my electric razor for almost a week.

I probably have everyone in the apartment building wondering what the hell that was with me yelling at her and the patio door wide open.

God give me strength to get over what ever the hell has frustrated me today.  I slept at least 8 hours yet how the hell can I be over tired again.

Maybe it was all the drama happening over xbox last night, so I’ll be avoiding it for a little while.  I SERIOUSLY HATE DRAMA.

Hell it’s also probably my horrible mood swings because I’ll be starting soon and the PMS is really going to be bad this month.  Maybe even my cycle.  Hell I don’t know any more.

I SERIOUSLY hate being like this.  I’m usually never like this PERIOD, but for some reason it’s like right there on the edge of blowing up. *sighs*

As for the drama on XBOX last night, lets just say I will not pick friends over other friends.  One friend says he doesn’t like this group cause of something they do, yet when that group I play with a few of them from that group doesn’t.  I don’t know what the hell they did to each other, but seriously folks please stop dragging me into the middle of the drama.  I like everyone I play with on there, but damn it I won’t choose over one or the other but if you don’t want to be my friend cause I’m friends with another person that you don’t like get over it ok and you can easily remove me from your list and it won’t be no skin off my nose.

I get on xbox to RELAX and have FUN not to be mean and the likes.  XBOX IS JUST A GAME CONSOLE WITH GAMES STOP TAKING THE SHIT SO DAMN SERIOUSLY! IT’S A GAME FOR FUCK SAKE GET OVER IT!!!!!!!

Anyways, I might have more to deal with later but honestly I don’t give a fuck about it and if people find my blog, especially this one bad cause of the cuss words I DO NOT CARE.  I have a right to type what I want and this is adult language in so many blogs out there it shouldn’t be no issue to ANYONE.  Free speech after all! God Bless America for that!
