Never have I been talked to so rudely. Because
I was taking pictures !!! Of things I was interested in along with tag that
shows $ & sometimes maker & size … was told they were uncomfortable
with me taking pics of PRICE!  Told him that I always did with any other shop /
consignment I went to. (my memory is bad ) especially when one is looking for
several pieces & to see pics when get home one can visualize if it will work
. RIGHT!  I TOLD him that I always did …he then said it was a first time for
everything. & it was HIS store & wanted me out … did mot want me to
continue looking …. wanted ~ pointing his finger ~ to get out!
I asked
please for a restroom … he said there was none (i knew there was) asked again
~again he said No!’ Get out.  (Before I forget .. see I told you my memory was
bad .. also told Jim I had taken many pics there before & showed him.a pic I
had_) ..so now back to the bathroom…. I asked PLEASE SIR …I’ve just S#^% in
my pants.  I have cancer, & sometimes this happens … especially over the
last few MONTHS that my cancer is back. So I left the store telling him &
showing him there were two pictures I wanted … said no ….so you BET his
loss.  I had to make the drive back home without making any other stops
necessary.  That was a Very Long 30 minute drive to get back home.
Go there
NO WAY!
Before I had & would have recommended ~ but after that MaN did
that to me NeVeR will again.

WHY?

WHY did WordPress  Change the Widget on my PAGE? The one That had the SIGN UP! to have someone follow my BLOG …. AND it says I have NO FOLOWERS ??? THAT is also WRONG!

I certainly did NOT change it … and now it is awful where it say to sign – me up for e-mail!  WHY does WordPress change things without giving US an opportunity to have a SAY!

 

***Update***

WordPress needs to check into this … all they have to do is READ THIS one & the comment.

OH and today – I got a notice that I’m following ME !!!  Imagine that !  So I’ve had to ‘unfollow’!  Now how stupid is this!

THE GERMAN ARTISTS ARE AT IT AGAIN…

 

THE GERMAN ARTISTS ARE AT IT AGAIN
Here are 7 pictures of European trucks whose trailers are decorated to look like the sides are missing and the products they are hauling are painted on the sides and back. The first one is of a bottle of beer and looks so real, like it is coming out the side of the trailer..

The second is of canvas tote bag.

The third is of Pepsi cases and they are all stacked on the ceiling, and the bottom of the trailer is empty.

The fourth is of another truck with the windshield facing the back and there has been a driver painted in the driver’s seat looking back over his shoulder to appear like he is driving backwards. (Now this one is just plain scary, even when the German reads ‘On the wrong way?’)

The fifth one is of an aquarium with fish swimming in it.


The sixth one is of a bookshelf with books lined up in it and a post-it-note with an advertisement on it, probably for the company that sells the books.


The last one is for Pringles-Hot & Spicy. The ‘inside’ of the trailer has the appearance of having been through a fire.

MY problem with TWITTER

Image representing Twitter as depicted in Crun...

IF by chance you have been following me on Twitter - I made a booboo! -

They – Twitter – should learn something from WordPress.  Because I by mistake deactivated my Twitter account!  After doing this I would have thought that as popular as they are & certainly I’ve had the ‘bug bite’ …they would verify that it was ME who had deleted the account – and NOT a spammer as does WordPress!  But NO!

All my followers – All those who I had come to follow – the little things I had re-tweeted and FAV’D – GONE!  Shame on Twitter for not making sure that YOU are the one who has ‘ordered’ this … and to be honest — Facebook should do the same! —- With so many hackers – spammers out there – this is one way to make sure that YOU are the owner of the site!  Now when I made the mistake – I can now NO LONGER use M Y  e-mail that I and all that know me use!!!  I have to use another that I do not use!  But YET - Twitter still has and shows that MY e-mail and MY name are already in use (taken) DUH!!!! YES – Now why does TWITTER not get this straight? 

Why has Twitter & Facebook Not taken and learned from WordPress that misstakes can and are made & it would be better to ask & be wrong than not to ask at all!

 

PS…Don’t you think that ‘like ‘WordPress’ Facebook & Twitter should have ONE Main Log-in Page!!!!!!!!! One that also shows & tells the Features that that service provides & WHAT to look for??

…. The photo above in this post – I’ve not seen before!

Pay Attention! Life is short….

 

Life is short….

I think there is a VERY PROFOUND message here!

How true is this one!!!!!  

 

 THE SITUATION

In Washington , DC , at a Metro Station, on a cold January morning in 2007, this man with a violin played six Bach pieces for about 45 minutes. During that time, approximately 2,000 people went through the station, most of them on their way to work. After about 3 minutes, a middle-aged man noticed that there was a musician playing. He slowed his pace and stopped for a few seconds, and then he hurried on to meet his schedule.

 

About 4 minutes later:


The violinist received his first dollar. A woman threw money in the hat and, without stopping, continued to walk.

At 6 minutes:

A young man leaned against the wall to listen to him, then looked at his watch and started to walk again.

At 10 minutes:

A 3-year old boy stopped, but his mother tugged him along hurriedly. The kid stopped to look at the violinist again, but the mother pushed hard and the child continued to walk, turning his head the whole time. This action was repeated by several other children, but every parent – without exception – forced their children to move on quickly.

At 45 minutes:


The musician played continuously. Only 6 people stopped and listened for a short while. About 20 gave money but continued to walk at their normal pace. The man collected a total of $32.

After 1 hour:

He finished playing and silence took over. No one noticed and no one applauded. There was no recognition at all.

No one knew this, but the violinist was Joshua Bell, one of the greatest musicians in the world. He played one of the most intricate pieces ever written, with a violin worth $3.5 million dollars. Two days before, Joshua Bell sold-out a theater in Boston where the seats averaged $100 each to sit and listen to him play the same music.

This is a true story. Joshua Bell, playing incognito in the D.C. Metro Station, was organized by the Washington Post as part of a social experiment about perception, taste and people’s priorities.

This experiment raised several questions:

*In a common-place environment, at an inappropriate hour, do we perceive beauty?

*If so, do we stop to appreciate it?

*Do we recognize talent in an unexpected context?

One possible conclusion reached from this experiment could be this:

If we do not have a moment to stop and listen to one of the best musicians in the world, playing some of the finest music ever written, with one of the most beautiful instruments ever made . . ..

How many other things are we missing as we rush through life?

Enjoy life NOW… it has an expiration date

Do YOU use the Sign up for E-mail Alerts?

I found that usimg E-Mail alerts are helpful an for the up-to-date when I cannot be on WordPess every day.
If you do not use the subscribe (enable) to the Email Subscription - I wish you would … I find it easy… and never miss anything that comes to my

e-mail Inbox.

I might miss something when so many are posted here on WordPRESS.

I HAVE IT AND HOPE THERE ARE SOME OF YOU WILL TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT!

Also when finding the pages I list to folllew…some of you do not have it enabled….Maybe you should!

This is just my opinion….but to me worthwhile as I check my e-mail more often than coming to WP.

With so many others things going on (with me) ((and maybe you too))
I do like to keep up with you … that is why you are on my blogroll list!
and I’ve been so lack in this  — keeping up with you….
With this new year…  <my postings are not as often as yours> … but maybe it will get me going more often….making them readable as I should be doing!.
Hope you will  consider doing this!

One I find interesting is Things we Make!

Just a condsideration and MY Opinion!

Artists transformed me…

I’m on a wonderful site – Deviantart -

How to Dance in the Rain

How to Dance in the Rain

 

  It was a busy morning, about 8:30, when an elderly gentleman in his 80′s arrived to have stitches removed from his thumb.  He said he was in a hurry as he had an appointment at 9:00 am.

  
 

I took his vital signs and had him take a seat, knowing it would be over an hour before someone would to able to see him.  I saw him looking at his watch and decided, since I was not busy with another patient, I would evaluate his wound.  On exam, it was well healed, so I talked to one of the doctors, got the needed supplies to remove his sutures and redress his wound. 
While taking care of his wound, I a sked him if he had another doctor’s appointment this morning, as he was in such a hurry. 

  
 

The gentleman told me no, that he needed to go to the nursing home to eat breakfast with his wife.  I inquired as to her health. 
He told me that she had been there for a while and that she was a victim of Alzheimer’s Disease.  

As we talked, I asked if she would be upset if he was a bit late.  
He replied that she no longer knew who he was, that she had not recognized him in five years now. 
 

 

I was surprised, and asked him, ‘And you still go every morning, even though she doesn’t know who you are?’ ‘That is the kind of love I want in my life.’ 

 but how to dance in the rain.’ 

He smiled as he patted my hand and said, 
‘She doesn’t know me, but I still know who she is.’
 
 
 

I had to hold back tears as he left, I had goose bumps on my arm, and thought, 

 

True love is neither physical, nor romantic.  
  True love is an acceptance of all that is, has been, will be, and will not be.
 
With all the jokes and fun that are in e-mails, sometimes there is one that comes along that has an important message.  This one I thought I could share with you.
The happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the best of everything they have.  I hope you share this with someone you care about.  I just did.
