Spam Comments

You know it’s really hard to believe if some of the comments caught in the spam filter are spam or not.

Anyone know the difference? I sure don’t and wish I did know how to tell between the spam and the non-spam comments.

Right now the only ones I know that are not spam are from my sister and from my fiancee.

I don’t want to discourage comments or anything like that, I’d just like to know the difference between spam and not spam.

There could actually be people who are in the comments that were caught in the spam filter, so until I know for sure; I will try and decipher between spam and non-spam comments.

Well my sister got some good news yesterday.  It appears that the publishers that she sent the first 3 chapters to loves the story.

So she now has I think until the end of April to get all chapters turned in to get it out on the list by May.

Congrats sissy! Best of luck and know that I’m here for support if you need it :). *HUGS* Love you :).

Wow it’s hard to believe that the 11 year cycle is just starting but won’t be in full swing until next year!

The Solar storms seem to be kicking off to a good start apparently, so far I’ve read of two major solar flare ups this year alone.  I think the first one was back in January and then this most recent one today.

The Solar flare erupted yesterday, and will be hitting us full blown today at 4 million mph! Damn that’s fast.  It will most likely or possibly cause issues with a number of things today, from possible power grid outages to GPS not wanting to work properly and so forth and so on.

According to the people who keep tabs on this thing, we can expect to see the Northern Lights all the way down here into Colorado, but with the full moon out there tonight, there might be some interference from the glow of the moon and we won’t be able to see much of the Northern Lights.  I would LOVE to see some Auroras, but who knows, there will most likely be some good possibilities to see them next year for sure since it seems the sun is going to be in its 11 year active cycle.

Another thing that is happening out there as well.  The Worm Moon, which is what the Native American’s call the March full moon is wiggling it’s way into the sky tonight.

The Native American’s called the March full moon the Lenten moon. It was thought to be the final full moon of winter, and a herald of spring.

Native Americans named full moons to differentiate between seasons.

The Worm Moon got it’s name because in March the ground traditionally begins to thaw, allowing worms to start emerging.

You can learn more about the Full Moon Names and Their Meanings by reading in the farmers’ almanac.

I hope you all enjoy this post.  I enjoyed writing it.  I’m sorry if my posts are few and far between, but it’s kind of hard to come up with something to blog about when not much is happening in your life and the likes :).

You know there is that special four legged person that you come to love, that you have either found on the streets or rescued from the humane society, but still you gave them a home.

Well my first cat I ever finally got to have was back in the year 1997, not long after the March 1st tornado outbreak in Arkansas that the twister decided to go behind my house.  We moved soon after that, cause it took damn near 2 hours for my dad and brother to get home from work cause all the regular routes home were blocked by downed trees and debris.  It’s like a damn bomb went off not far behind our home.

Brother decided after that day that he would head to Oklahoma, while dad and I headed up to Jacksonville, AR to live.  This is where I got my very first cat.  I still had my dog Natasha, but sadly not long after the tornado outbreak, she died of natural causes.

A neighbor in the trailer park where we were living was fostering pets for the local human society, and I met Deamon, who had two personalities, the lovey dovey during heat and then the demon cat from hell.  Well she wasn’t really a demon, but she did have different personalities, Deamon and Deamonese. Deamon had just weaned her 1st litter of kittens and was probably just turning a year old.  She was a good mouser and she was also a Torte.  Those who know cat breads will know a Torte :).

Deamon had a way of letting you know in no uncertain terms that she had enough petting and loving, when she would wind up clawing and biting you.  Yep that’s her cat from hell side.  During her heat cycles though she was all over you wanting attention, and this was her Deamonese side :).

She lived from 1997 to 2007 so she lived a good life.  I had to have her put to sleep for advanced breast cancer, it was to far along to catch, and I couldn’t afford the vet care for her.  She’d been a good cat and had live very long and good life.  I still miss her from time to time but I know she is no longer suffering in pain and bleeding profusely like she was.  She is now in kitty heaven in the eternal catnip fields enjoying her new life up there and very happy.

My fiance had a cat who was very old, and Starry Star lived for a long, long time after he and his ex had picked her out.  According to him, Star, was already old when they’d gotten her.  She waited until he was no longer alone in life before she quietly passed away on the way to the vet.  I was there to support him and for him to lean on, so we know both cats are now in the eternal catnip fields playing with each other and the other kitties that have passed on in this world.  They are no longer in pain and are healthy up there.  They will be forever missed.

Then just last year or the year before we finally broke down and went over the the Dumb Friends League right down the street from us and picked out another kitty to love and cherish, and in arrive Penelope or Penny for short.  She’d just weaned her kittens two weeks pryer to going up for adoption.  We feel in love with her.  She is well loved and taken care of and returns that love unconditionally.  She’s usually a goody kitty, but then there are times that she is a Miss Toot Girl 🙂 as you have all previously read about the cat food blunder post I posted last month. LOL :). Penny has a mix of both Deamon and Star in her with the way she acts at times.  We sometimes accidentally calls her by one of our former kitty names.  I sometimes call her Deamon, but it’s gotten less and Erbo sometimes ended up calling her Star, but it’s not as prominent as it was at the beginning of us getting her.

You know having pets can enhance a person’s life and it feels so good to be able to say hey I saved that animal’s life.  Dogs and Cats are the best, but there are so many animals out there that have been abused from cats, dogs, horses and more.  Or they just couldn’t be taken care of cause of money situations.  It’s very hard to have to let your pet go if you can’t take care of them.  I’ve been in that situation many a time.  I’ve seen way to many shows that show animals just being abandoned and left to try and fiend for themselves instead of taking the time to take the animal to a shelter that hopefully has room.

People if you can’t take care of your pets, then try your best to try and get them to a shelter, or try your best to find someone who CAN afford to take care of an animal.  It is so much better then leaving them to defend for themselves, starving to death and the likes.  That is no way for an animal to be left to die.  It’s sad and irritating as hell and it makes me want to just go around and beat some sense into the people who abuse animals to for the fun of it or abandon them to starve to death.  You aren’t human beings if you are doing that, you are nothing but animals yourself.  Animals have feelings as well as we humans do, they just can’t speak up about it and report it, but they can show you that they do by attacking you back if you’ve abused them and the likes. Get a life people and those that abuse animals need to go to jail and stay there.

Anyways, I’ll get off my soap box for now, but be smart.  If you have a pet and can’t afford to take care of them find someone who can.  Pets are loving beings and need a home as much as we do.  If I could I’d try and take every single animal I could in, but that isn’t likely since that would also be known as hording and I don’t want to wind up in jail for that or forced to get rid of some of them.  If I had a nice big farm I’d definitely try if I could but still that won’t happen unless I win the Powerball, which isn’t likely to happen any time soon. 🙂

Enjoy your pets, and love them for they are a part of your family and they will return the love and attention.  They deserve so much more and better things, but if you can’t afford all those wonderful things we know pets could use, don’t worry, just make sure they are loved and well taken care of.  Make sure they are fixed and have a microchip in them as well as are up to date on all their shots.  Most importantly, love them and keep them feed if that’s all you can do.  They are as precious as a child and deserve to be loved and treated well.

I was introduced to these blogs just the other day and man if you love horses and the freedom and beautiful country sights, this is one of the blogs that will give you update information on the wild mustangs in some of the areas out there. I hope everyone will enjoy these blogs as much as I have :). Thanks to those who keep all updated and just LOVE the horses that they blog about so much :). I will :).

Wild in the Pryors

Today we are going to look at 7 more bands, from the mountain top, that may have foals this year.  I am going to wait until after my trip to the Pryor’s to post our guesses on the Dryhead horses.   The first band that we are going to look at is Morning Stars Band.

There is one, possibly two and a tiny maybe on a third and forth. This is one band that I did not get very good photos of this year.  They were always just a little bit to far away or resting in the trees.  So if anyone has better photos of them and want to share with us, please let me know.

The first mare is Galalic Princess.  She is the grulla mare with a star and lg snip, with a left hind sock.  The second mare that may have a foal (a maybe) is Harmony. …

This is one of those days again that you just want to say fuck it and roll back over and go back to sleep.

Yeah lets put it this way.  Only have a few hours of sleep the day before, then spending all morning and most of the night, at least until XBOX Live started acting up around 2 or 3 a.m. in the morning Colorado, USA, Mountain Time.

After the last kick off from the game I said fuck it and went to bed.  I did send word to all my friends that I was playing with at the time that I was heading out and going to bed.  I wasn’t going to be rude to them LOL.

I went to bed, got woke up by a call from my father between 6 and 6:30 a.m. this morning letting me know that hey they survived the tornado that just gusted through.  I was like huh what?! but at least they were ok :).

Then after the brief conversation with my dad, I rolled back over and went back to sleep until the 7:45 a.m. alarm went off on my phone, to make sure that I got my fiancee out of bed to get ready for work.  I thought it was the 8 a.m. one, but nope it was the first one and oops sorry dear for kicking you out of bed before the second alarm went off :).

Then while he was getting dressed, I felt like I had a hang over from hell and I don’t drink, honest.  I’m guessing it was from the lack of sleep I’d had the previous night or morning I should say. hehe 🙂

All I remember after the I love yous and the kiss was him heading out the bedroom with Penny and closing the door and I yelled out be safe, but nothing after that until I woke again around 12:30 that afternoon.

My mind has been fuzzy and off center all day and even tonight lol.  Anyways, I’m going to try and get some sleep tonight and maybe won’t feel so bad tomorrow :).  Until next time I post. Nini, good morning, good afternoon or good evening :).
