I’m rich or maybe not?

I have been receiving emails the past couple of days, okay actually the last week too about how much money some nice person wants to give me….. I mean WOW…. A billion dollars is a lot of money and it could be mine if I just send them my bank account info and $7,000.00 …. I guess that is a small price to pay for sooooo much money, but why me??? I don’t know those folks and out of nowhere I am getting emails offering me that kind of cash….

Somehow I don’t see it being an honest offer, but then there are the other emails offering me ways to spend my money….. Do they know that I was offered a billion dollars??? And besides that I could get even richer if I watch a video about how a grandmother became a millionaire overnight….. Now that is something….. Go to sleep wake-up the next morning and “Bingo” rich!!! I bet the elderly women won the money playing bingo, but they don’t want to tell me…… Bingo parlor here I come!!!

To be really honest, I am not a bingo playing person, so I guess I will have to watch another video on how to make a fortune, and then spend it on some great offers that is sent to me……..

Then there was an email that I received yesterday in the subject line they called me a “ jerk”… now that person who wrote that really needs to think and learn how to write, because if I wrote to people and friends with the word “ Jerk” in the subject line….. I know for sure they would not be too happy and would say “Good-bye friendship”. I feel some folks are just plain cheeky and I think they are “jerks” too!

What confused me was the email saying that they were trying to phone me and that I didn’t answer my phone and all I had to do was give them my phone number and they would call me back….. But in the subject line was “we tried to call you and you didn’t answer”….. Somehow a bit contradictory …. I mean really if you know me you know my phone number and that is the point…. I don’t think they know me and are trying to trick me like all the others with the offers of money and so forth.

But reading can be fun…. My question from April this year can be answered now….. I don’t even remember asking a question in an email; but then again my brain isn’t that young anymore and maybe I did ask…. I didn’t recognize the senders name so I guess I never asked anything in April that was important and if it takes so long to answer my question then it wasn’t that important, so forget it!! Press delete…..

And what is so great is the names of the people who send those emails… it is beyond me though; sometimes I think they get their wires crossed themselves… I got 6 emails from the same person, but in different countries.

But my order has been fulfilled and all I have to do is send the money and sooner or more like never I will get my goods that I have never ordered……. Their imagination seems to be getting somewhat limited here.

Read on but don’t click on those wonderful and often to good to be true nonsense…

The Importance of a Woman’s Brain

Gal’s brains too are full of great things as I learned from this past weekend’s newspaper too… Now I can honestly say that I can finally understand myself after all these years… Ok, it’s taken awhile but I know now!!!

It is said that gal’s brains are divided into sections too, so that we have at least something in common with guy’s brains… what a small world it seems to be!!!

Diet section: I’ve been watching my weight for years, but I can always find something new to think about when it comes to dieting like: no candy bars for the next 2 days.. And now I already feel better with this thought because it is part of my diet.

Hair section: A nightmare when your hair doesn’t look good and I have a bad hair day…. No more thoughts today except my hair … OMG!!!!!

What to wear section: Oh, that takes up a major section of my brain and when I open my closet door and stand there I have make that all decisive decision “ what do I wear today?” – You can sort of compare this to a multi-million dollar decision as to how to run a company… But running a company could be easier!!!

Shoe section: Key section and equal to the “what to wear section”…. I love my shoes so much that my brain cells are shaped like shoes… to keep my thoughts focused.

Spending money section: Stores here I come!! But this section of the brain is connected to your wallet, so how much you spend depends on how much money is in your wallet… but a degree of happiness is always there.

Speaking section: Now, I would rate this as the utmost important section of a gal’s brain because many of us gal’s love to talk and I can only speak for myself… I could talk for hours and never run out of things to say!

So, gal’s when you put all those great sections of your brain together we have great thoughts, and talking about that… Have a happy time thinking about whatever it may be!

App to Happ

Now there’s finally something that will make my day a happy one – the “happy app” or if I need to lose weight the –”weighty app” ( the real names I don’t know) but to just stare at the screen of my cell phone and be hypnotized into thinking that I am happy or will lose weight seems a bit farfetched. But if you have more money than you know what to do with then by all means beeeee cooooool and buy the thing.

I have made-up some pill color examples :

I can see some positive advantages to getting one of those little pictures of a pill…… I show the green pill a symbol for money to my guy when I am a bit strapped for cash and after 30 seconds he says” Honey how much do you need?” – I feel better already just at that thought. No need to worry. Or it could be great at the office. Just imagine, normally you worry about how can approach your boss for a pay rise???? No problem!!! Just show your boss the screen of your cell phone with the “green pill” on it and after 30 seconds…. He/ she says; “of, course you can.” Now that’s something to smile about!!! So I am happy…..

Then there’s probably the”yellow pill” for the day when the sun isn’t shining. Again look at the little “yellow pill” and there you are sitting on the beach enjoying yourself soaking up a little sunshine. The wonders of the imagination… Mine still works, thank goodness!
But this app could be a real nerve saver at the office when everyone is in a bad mood… go around to your colleagues and show them the app and I am sure that would lighten their spirits up. But be careful the boss doesn’t catch you and get mad at you, because then you need the “yellow & black pill” – for how to make my boss in a better mood – use sparingly.

With the “black pill” one should take heed and not over do it, but if you want others to be in a bad mood , because maybe your spirits are down then this “black pill” is good….. Can’t be happy all the time! Just a quick glance at the” black pill” and it makes you feel that something isn’t going the way it should be… a gray cloud is looming overhead!!

Then there’s the “pink pill” for gals…. USE WITH EXTREME CAUTION!!! This is the shopping pill. Just a quick glimpse at this pill and you are in a trance and ready for a day out at the mall…. But beware; do you have enough small change in your handbag for this adventure?????

Guys there is something for you too – the “orange pill” this little pill once you look at it puts you in the right frame of mind for an evening out with the guys to watch the game. NOTE: this is not recommended for gals!

And not to forget the “invisible pill” this is for those on diets. Just one look at the “invisible pill” and your hunger is cured. Don’t know the exact scientific principle but, I guess its trial and error with this one and no guarantee.

I wonder if you need a prescription for these pills and are they sold at your local drug store alongside the aspirins and such???? Next time your there could you check for us? – Thanks

My Wallet has a Problem

It must be true because I read it that people tend to spend grubby cash notes [paper money] faster than crisp new notes from the bank. I never gave this much thought until today and so naturally I had a quick peek in my wallet only to find that none of the bank notes are brand new. A sad day for me but a good reason to go shopping!!!!!
Shopping mall here I come – my wallet is burning

I mean really who wants dirty bank notes in their wallets??? Not me and so from now on I am going to always ask for fresh clean notes when I go to the store, because I do not want to get my change back and it’s some grubby looking note that could ruin the look of my wallet…. What would my friends think of me?????
I can see it now I am out and about with my gal friends and I have to pay for something ….. I am starting to get nervous at the thought! Well, I open my wallet and staring at me are old grubby used bank notes. My gal friends would just stare at me in disbelief and ask me “what has happened to you?” The pitfalls of paying cash..

This seems to be a dilemma that I will have to live with and I do hope that all my gal friends don’t look down on me because I don’t have fresh bank notes in my wallet… Though I should take a peek in their wallets too see what the state is of their bank notes are and if they are grubby looking than I won’t fell soooooo bad. My day is saved!

But before I go shopping today I’ll make a quick stop at the bank to ask for a couple of new bank notes so when I open my wallet it doesn’t look like I only carry around grubby looking notes with me… the stress of money!

Who ever thought that it would come to this point in life that we only want new bank notes in our wallets? I am happy just to have some notes in my wallet whether they be old or new. I like cash in my wallet! And so I say too those folks with only new bank notes in their wallets that money is money and it all spends the same way whether new or used.

Enjoy your cash in your wallet and don’t spend it all in one place!

Plastic Plates and Palatable

This is a somewhat of a touchy subject because it is something that is everywhere in a lot of people’s lives.

I think it’s great when people try to do something for the environment or try to save money in their households but what I do not understand is when everyone wants to save money in various areas is why do people use disposable plastics plates to eat off of at home? Is this really something that people have to do?

Has anyone even thought about how much money they invest in such disposable plastic plates and are they really saving money?

I see it like this: an average household with 4 people living in it and they may consume 2 meals a day that require a plate; so that’s 56 plates a week at $15.68 x 52 weeks a year = $815.36.

I do not want to think about how many household there are like this and how much petroleum is used to produce those plates that are used once and then thrown in the garbage. I ask have you really saved anything? And I am sure there are many other items in people’s daily lives that they use only once and disposed of, and is all that plastic really necessary?

Wouldn’t it be better to buy a set of dishes made out of ceramic or similar material? And all you have to do is wash them after you have used them. And at the same time you are doing your bit for the environment.

I personally find it better to eat off of a proper plate instead of a disposable plastic plate and plus a proper plate offers stability and does not use so much of the earth’s natural resources like a disposable plastic plate does. With normal dishes the food tastes better too and is more appealing than those plastic things. There are hundreds of reasons for using a proper plate.

Then there is the possibility that when food or beverages comes in contact with plastic that it isn’t good for your health, but it is still used anyways and no one seems to even think about it. The main thing is convenience and you can throw it away easily. Have people gotten so lazy or have they just plain forgotten what it is like to eat off a real plate? Can anyone answer this question for me?

I am a staunch supporter of recycling and have seen how it is done in some European countries and find it amazing and how good it really works and that the population is really aware of the environment and wants to do their bit for it. Plus, no one would even dream of eating off a disposable plastic plate neither at home nor when their on/at a picnic either. That’s really classy and has some sort of style to it which I find really great!!

More people should try this and would be amazed at how nice it can be to sit at the table together and everyone has their own (real) plate and also no one needs to eat in front of the television either. I think that eating in front of the TV is the worst thing of all and you would be amazed that if people tried to sit together at the table that they may find something to talk about if they practice it a bit and know what is going on in the other person’s life and not always preoccupied with themselves but take an interest in the others around them in their household.

And this also gives you a chance to eat a great meal together, and you can cook-up something together from natural products and not fast-food or pre-made, i.e. TV dinners or the likes; which are a total waste of money.

Real homemade food tastes great on real plates and you can enjoy the results of what you cooked and try so many great recipes that don’t cost the world either.

So try it -> a real home cooked meal served on real plates that make for a great time and maybe a good conversation too.
