A Story


I was at the corner grocery store buying some early potatoes. I noticed a small boy, delicate of bone and feature, ragged but clean, hungrily apprising a basket of freshly picked green peas. 

I paid for my potatoes but was also drawn to the display of fresh green peas. I am a pushover for creamed peas and new potatoes.  Pondering the peas, I couldn't help overhearing the conversation between Mr.Miller (the store owner) and the ragged boy next to me. 

'Hello Barry, how are you today?' 

'H'lo, Mr. Miller. Fine, thank ya. Jus' admirin' them peas. They sure look good.' 

'They are good, Barry. How's your Ma?' 

'Fine. Gittin' stronger alla' time.'

'Good. Anything I can help you with?'

'No, Sir. Jus' admirin' them peas.'
'Would you like to take some home?' asked Mr. Miller. 

'No, Sir. Got nuthin' to pay for 'em with.' 

'Well, what have you to trade me for some of those peas?'

'All I got's my prize marble here.'

'Is that right? Let me see it' said Miller. 

'Here 'tis. She's a dandy.' 

'I can see that. Hmmmmm, only thing is this one is blue and I sort of go for red. Do you have a red one like this at home?' the store owner asked.

'Not zackley but almost..'

'Tell you what. Take this sack of peas home with you and next trip this way let me look at that red marble'. Mr. Miller told the boy. 

'Sure will. Thanks Mr Miller.'  

Mrs. Miller, who had been standing nearby, came over to help me. With a smile she said, 'There are two other boys like him in our community, all three are in very poor circumstances. Jim just loves to bargain with them for peas, apples, tomatoes, or whatever. When they come back with their red marbles, and they always do, he decides he doesn't like red after all and he sends them home with a bag of produce for a green marble or an orange one, when they come on their next trip to the store.'  

I left the store smiling to myself, impressed with this man. A short time later I moved to Colorado, but I never forgot the story of this man, the boys, and their bartering for marbles.

Several years went by, each more rapid than the previous one. Just recently I had occasion to visit some old friends in that Idaho community and while I was there learned that Mr. Miller had died. 

They were having his visitation that evening and knowing my friends wanted to go, I agreed to accompany them. Upon arrival at the mortuary we fell into line to meet the relatives of the deceased and to offer whatever words of comfort we could. 

Ahead of us in line were three young men. One was in an army uniform and the other two wore nice haircuts, dark suits and white shirts...all very professional looking. They approached Mrs. Miller, standing composed and smiling by her husband's casket. Each of the young men hugged her, kissed her on the cheek, spoke briefly with her and moved on to the casket. 
Her misty light blue eyes followed them as, one by one, each young man stopped briefly and placed his own warm hand over the cold pale hand in the casket. Each left the mortuary awkwardly, wiping his eyes.

Our turn came to meet Mrs. Miller. I told her who I was and reminded her of the story from those many years ago and what she had told me about her husband's bartering for marbles. With her eyes glistening, she took my hand and led me to the casket.  

'Those three young men who just left were the boys I told you about. They just told me how they appreciated the things Jim 'traded' them. Now, at last, when Jim could not change his mind about color or size....they came to pay their debt.'

'We've never had a great deal of the wealth of this world,' she confided, 'but right now, Jim would consider himself the richest man in Idaho ' 

With loving gentleness she lifted the lifeless fingers of her 
deceased husband. Resting underneath were three exquisitely shined red marbles.

The Moral : We will not be remembered by our words, but by our kind deeds. Life is not measured  by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath.. 

Today I wish you a day of ordinary miracles ~ A fresh pot of coffee you didn't make yourself...An unexpected phone call from an old friend...Green stoplights on your way to work...The fastest line at the grocery store...A good sing-along song on the radio...Your keys found right where you left them.

Last year we bought Double Minutes for life... This year you sent a card saying if we signed up for another year we would get 1000 minutes.... We signed up but only got 600 minutes.... We called in and they explained that we would have had to sign up before November 17, 2008... After a long time complaining about the deceptive treatment the lady we talked to said she would fix the problem, but it may take a few days... Well here is is several days later and we still do not have the 1000 minutes you promised......

If you are not able to live up to your promise you are going to loose two customers........

Be careful if you use TracFone and try for the Double Minutes for Life..........

They do not use the expiration date that appears on your phone, they use the date you signed up for it in the first place......

This means you loose that Double Minutes for Life the day after one year from the date you signed up for it in the first place.....

They are playing games to get more money out of you.......

Smart Computing,

I am having trouble moving a Domain ( from to another Hosting Service......

I have been trying for almost a year now and I keep getting the run around..........

A long story short:
1) I started in November 2007.........
The customer that I'm working for had their credit card stolen and so we could not provide Host Once with the last four digits of the credit card that was used to open the account...

2) The account finally ran out and Host Once started advertising X-Rated Web Sites on

3) After almost a month the owner convinced Host Once that she was indeed the owner and let her pay for the Web Site........

4) I tried to move the Web Site again in February 2008 and Host Once stated it could not be moved until late July 2008........

5) I have tried twice now in August 2008 and Host Once will not answer my requests......... I need the Domain Name unlocked and an authorizing code to move the service..........

Where should I turn to get this unethical practice stopped so that I am able move to a better Hosting Company????????????

In the mean time I had to buy another Domain Name ( and Hosting and I used

Thank you for a Great Magazine.........

Eisenhower Farewell Address

Eisenhower was a 5 star general, a product of the defense
industry, and also a republican president. His final words
of advice in his farewell address were these: 

"To all the peoples of the world, I once more give expression to America's prayerful and continuing aspiration: We pray that peoples of all faiths, all races, all nations, may have their great human needs satisfied; that those now denied opportunity shall come to enjoy it to the full; that all who yearn for freedom may experience its few spiritual blessings. Those who have freedom will understand, also, its heavy responsibility; that all who are insensitive to the needs of others will learn charity; and that the sources -- scourges of poverty, disease, and ignorance will be made [to] disappear from the earth; and that in the goodness of time, all peoples will come to live together in a peace guaranteed by the binding force of mutual respect and love."

Fast forward to today. "People will come together in a peace guaranteed by the binding force of mutual respect and LOVE." I would bet if he said that today he would be castrated as a republican and labeled a bleeding heart liberal loony.

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1                        Cyber Security Tip ST05-008                         How Anonymous Are You?     You may think that you are anonymous as you browse web sites, but    pieces of information about you are always left behind. You can reduce    the amount of information revealed about you by visiting legitimate    sites, checking privacy policies, and minimizing the amount of    personal information you provide.  What information is collected?     When  you  visit  a  web  site,  a  certain  amount  of information is    automatically  sent  to  the  site.  This  information may include the    following:      * IP address - Each computer on the internet is assigned a specific,        unique  IP  (internet  protocol) address. Your computer may have a        static IP address or a dynamic IP address. If you have a static IP        address,  it  never  changes.  However,  some  ISPs own a block of        addresses  and  assign  an  open  one each time you connect to the        internet--this  is  a  dynamic  IP address. You can determine your        computer's   IP   address   at   any   given   time   by  visiting      * domain  name  -  The  internet  is divided into domains, and every        user's  account  is  associated with one of those domains. You can        identify  the  domain  by  looking at the end of URL; for example,        .edu  indicates  an  educational  institution, .gov indicates a US        government  agency,  .org  refers to organization, and .com is for        commercial  use.  Many  countries also have specific domain names.        The  list  of  active  domain names is available from the Internet        Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA).      * software  details  -  It  may  be  possible for an organization to        determine  which  browser, including the version, that you used to        access  its  site.  The organization may also be able to determine        what operating system your computer is running.      * page  visits - Information about which pages you visited, how long        you  stayed on a given page, and whether you came to the site from        a  search  engine is often available to the organization operating        the web site.     If  a  web  site uses cookies, the organization may be able to collect    even  more  information, such as your browsing patterns, which include    other  sites  you've  visited. If the site you're vising is malicious,    files  on  your computer, as well as passwords stored in the temporary    memory, may be at risk.  How is this information used?     Generally,   organizations   use  the  information  that  is  gathered    automatically  for  legitimate purposes, such as generating statistics    about  their sites. By analyzing the statistics, the organizations can    better  understand  the  popularity  of  the  site  and which areas of    content  are  being  accessed  the  most. They may be able to use this    information  to  modify the site to better support the behavior of the    people visiting it.     Another way to apply information gathered about users is marketing. If    the  site  uses  cookies  to  determine  other sites or pages you have    visited,  it  may  use this information to advertise certain products.    The  products  may  be  on  the same site or may be offered by partner    sites.     However,  some  sites  may  collect  your  information  for  malicious    purposes.  If  attackers  are  able  to  access  files,  passwords, or    personal  information  on  your computer, they may be able to use this    data  to  their  advantage.  The  attackers  may be able to steal your    identity,  using  and  abusing your personal information for financial    gain.  A  common  practice  is  for  attackers  to  use  this  type of    information  once or twice, then sell or trade it to other people. The    attackers  profit from the sale or trade, and increasing the number of    transactions  makes  it  more  difficult to trace any activity back to    them.  The  attackers  may  also  alter  the security settings on your    computer  so  that  they  can  access  and use your computer for other    malicious activity.  Are you exposing any other personal information?     While  using  cookies may be one method for gathering information, the    easiest  way for attackers to get access to personal information is to    ask  for  it.  By  representing  a malicious site as a legitimate one,    attackers  may  be  able  to  convince  you to give them your address,    credit  card  information,  social  security number, or other personal    data  (see  Avoiding  Social Engineering and Phishing Attacks for more    information).  How can you limit the amount of information collected about you?       * Be  careful  supplying  personal  information - Unless you trust a        site,   don't   give   your  address,  password,  or  credit  card        information.  Look  for  indications  that  the  site  uses SSL to        encrypt  your  information  (see  Protecting Your Privacy for more        information).  Although  some  sites  require  you  to supply your        social  security  number  (e.g.,  sites  associated with financial        transactions such as loans or credit cards), be especially wary of        providing this information online.      * Limit cookies - If an attacker can access your computer, he or she        may  be  able to find personal data stored in cookies. You may not        realize  the  extent  of  the  information stored on your computer        until  it  is  too late. However, you can limit the use of cookies        (see Browsing Safely: Understanding Active Content and Cookies for        more information).      * Browse  safely - Be careful which web sites you visit; if it seems        suspicious,  leave the site. Also make sure to take precautions by        increasing   your  security  settings  (see  Evaluating  Your  Web        Browser's  Security  Settings  for more information), keeping your        virus   definitions  up  to  date  (see  Understanding  Anti-Virus        Software  for  more  information),  and scanning your computer for        spyware   (see   Recognizing   and   Avoiding   Spyware  for  more        information).

Yes, I'm a Bad American by George Carlin

by: George Carlin 

I Am Your Worst Nightmare. I am a BAD American. I am George Carlin. 

I believe the money I make belongs to me and my family, not some mid level governmental functionary be it Democratic or Republican! 

I'm in touch with my feelings and I like it that way! 

I think owning a gun doesn't make you a killer, it makes you a smart American. 

I think being a minority does not make you noble or victimized, and does not entitle you to anything. 

I believe that if you are selling me a Big Mac, do it in English. 

I believe everyone has a right to pray to his or her God when and where they want to. 

My heroes are John Wayne, Babe Ruth, Roy Rogers, and whoever canceled Jerry Springer. 

I don't hate the rich. I don't pity the poor. 

I know wrestling is fake and I don't waste my time watching or arguing about it. 

I've never owned a slave, or was a slave, I haven't burned any witches or been persecuted by the Turks and neither have you! So, shut up already. 

I believe if you don't like the way things are here, go back to where you came from and change your own country! This is AMERICA. 

I want to know which church is it exactly where the Reverend Jesse Jackson preaches, where he gets his money, and why he is always part of the problem and not the solution. Can I get an AMEN on that one? 

I think the cops have every right to shoot your sorry rear if you're running from them.. 

I also think they have the right to pull you over if you're breaking the law, regardless of what color you are. 

And, no, I don't mind having my face shown on my drivers license. I think it's good..... and I'm proud that 'God' is written on my money. 

I think if you are too stupid to know how a ballot works, I don't want you deciding who should be running the most powerful nation in the world for the next four years. 

I dislike those people standing in the intersections trying to sell me stuff or trying to guilt me into making 'donations' to their cause. 

I believe that it doesn't take a village to raise a child, it takes two parents. 

And what is going on with gas prices... again? 

I believe 'illegal' is illegal no matter what the lawyers think. 

I believe the American flag should be the only one allowed in AMERICA! 

If this makes me a BAD American, then yes, I'm a BAD American. 

If you are a BAD American too, please forward this to everyone you know. 

We want our country back!

Obama and the Bigots

The New York Times
Printer Friendly Format Sponsored By

Obama and the Bigots

The ugliest prejudices in this campaign season are not directly about race. Barack Obama’s skin color may cost him some working-class white voters, but it’s also winning some votes among blacks and among whites eager to signal their open-mindedness.

Sexism seems more of a factor. Americans have typically said in polls that they are less willing to vote for a woman than a black, and Shirley Chisholm (a black woman who ran for president in 1972) always said that she encountered more prejudice because of her sex than her race.

Yet the most monstrous bigotry in this election isn’t about either race or sex. It’s about religion.

The whispering campaigns allege that Mr. Obama is a secret Muslim planning to impose Islamic law on the country. Incredibly, he is even accused — in earnest! — of being the Antichrist.

Proponents of this theory offer detailed theological explanations for why he is the Antichrist, and the proof is that he claims to be Christian — after all, the Antichrist would say that, wouldn’t he? The rumors circulate enough that Glenn Beck of CNN asked the Rev. John Hagee, a conservative evangelical, what the odds are that Mr. Obama is the Antichrist.

These charges are fanatical, America’s own equivalent of the vicious accusations about Jews that circulate in some Muslim countries. They are less a swipe at one candidate than a calumny against an entire religion. They underscore that for many bigoted Americans in the 21st century, calling someone a Muslim is still a slur.

There is a parallel with presidential campaigns in the 19th and early 20th centuries, when one of the most common ways to attack a candidate was to suggest that he was partly black, or at least favored racial intermarriage. For example, the Federalists charged that Thomas Jefferson was “the son of a half-breed Indian squaw, sired by a Virginia mulatto father.” And the word “miscegenation” was coined in 1863 and 1864 in charges that Abraham Lincoln secretly plotted for blacks to marry whites, especially Irish-Americans.

As late as the 1920 presidential campaign, a quarter-million letters were sent to voters accusing Warren Harding of being descended from a “West Indian Negro. ... May God save America from international shame and domestic ruin.”

In looking back at that history, you wish that a candidate had responded not only with, “No, I don’t have any black ancestor,” but also with, “So what if I did?”

Likewise, with countless people today spreading scurrilous rumors that Mr. Obama is a Muslim, the most appropriate response is a denial followed by: And so what if he were?

Granted, that’s not politically realistic as a comeback. A 2007 Gallup poll found that 94 percent of Americans said they would vote for a black candidate for president and 88 percent for a woman. In contrast, a Los Angeles Times poll in 2006 found that only 34 percent of respondents said they could vote for a Muslim for president.

Even if a prejudice is directed to a matter of choice, like religion or long hair, it’s still prejudice. It’s possible to believe that Catholics have every right to be president while opposing a particular Catholic candidate who would ban contraception; likewise, it’s possible to believe that Muslims have every right to hold office without necessarily embracing the candidacy of particular Muslims who advocate enveloping all women in burkas.

To his credit, Mr. Obama has spoken respectfully of Islam (he told me last year, on the record, that the Muslim call to prayer is “one of the prettiest sounds on earth at sunset”). If he were to go further — “and so what if I were Muslim?” — many Americans would see that as confirmation that he is a Sunni terrorist agent of Al Qaeda who is part of a 9/11 backup plan: If you can’t reach the White House with a hijacked plane, then storm the Oval Office through the ballot box.

This is a case where Hillary Rodham Clinton and John McCain should take the initiative and denounce the fear-mongering about Mr. Obama as hate speech. The wink-wink references to “Barack Hussein Obama” and lies about his going to a madrassa are the religious equivalent of racial slurs, and Mr. McCain and Mrs. Clinton should denounce them in the strongest terms. This is their chance to show leadership.

When Mrs. Clinton was asked in a television interview a week ago whether Mr. Obama is a Muslim, she denied it firmly — but then added, most unfortunately, “as far as I know.” To his credit, Mr. McCain scolded a radio host who repeatedly referred to “Barack Hussein Obama” and later called him a Manchurian candidate.

Martin Luther wasn’t a model of tolerance but even he took the position that, “I’d rather be ruled by a wise Turk than a foolish Christian.” In this presidential campaign, we should at least aspire to be as open-minded as 16th-century Germans.

The Land That Made Me Me

Seasons come and seasons go,
In nature and the rest,
One must move on, but must confess 
I liked the old days best.
The Land that made Me Me...


Long ago  and far away, in a land that time forgot,
Before the days  of Dylan, or the dawn of Camelot.
There lived a race of  innocents, and they were you and me,

For Ike was  in the White House in that land where we were born,
Where navels were for oranges, and Peyton Place  was porn.

We learned to gut a muffler, we washed our hair at dawn,
We spread our crinolines to dry in circles on the lawn.

We longed for love and  romance, and waited for our Prince,
And Eddie Fisher married Liz, and no one's seen him since.
We  danced to 'Little Darlin,' and sang to 'Stagger Lee'
And  cried for Buddy Holly in the Land That Made Me  Me.

Only girls wore earrings then, and 3 was one too many,
And only boys wore flat-top cuts, except for Jean  McKinney.

And only in our wildest dreams did we  expect to see
A boy named George with Lipstick, in the Land That Made Me Me.

We fell for Frankie Avalon, Annette was oh, so nice,
And when they made a movie, they never made it twice.

We didn't have a Star Trek Five, or Psycho Two and Three,
Or Rocky-Rambo Twenty in the Land That Made Me Me.

Miss Kitty had a heart of  gold, and Chester had a limp,
And Reagan was a Democrat whose co-star was a  chimp.

We had a Mr. Wizard, but not a Mr. T  ,
And Oprah couldn't talk, yet, in the Land That Made Me Me.

We had our share of heroes, we never thought they'd go,
At least not Bobby Darin, or Marilyn  Monroe.

For youth was still eternal, and life was yet to be,
And Elvis was forever in the Land That Made Me Me.

We'd never seen the rock band that was Grateful to be Dead,
And Airplanes weren't named Jefferson, and Zeppelins were not Led.

And Beatles lived in  gardens then, and Monkees lived in trees,
Madonna was a virgin in the Land That Made Me Me.

We'd never heard of microwaves, or telephones in cars,
And babies might be bottle-fed, but they weren't grown in jars.

And pumping iron got wrinkles out, and  'gay' meant fancy-free,
And dorms were never coed in the  Land That Made Me Me.

We hadn't seen enough of jets to  talk about the lag,
And microchips were what was left at  the bottom of the bag.

And Hardware was a box of nails, and bytes came from a flea,
And rocket ships were  fiction in the Land That Made Me Me.

Buicks came with portholes, and side shows came with freaks,
And  bathing suits came big enough to cover both your cheeks.

And Coke came just in bottles, and skirts  below the knee,
And Castro came to power near the Land That  Made Me Me.

We had no Crest with Fluoride, we had  no Hill Street Blues,
We had no patterned pantyhose or Lipton herbal tea
Or prime-time ads  for condoms in the Land That Made Me Me.

There  were no golden arches, no Perrier to chill,
And fish were not called Wanda, and cats were not called Bill.

And middle-aged was 35 and old was  forty-three,
And ancient were our parents in the Land That  Made Me Me.

But all things have a season, or so  we've heard them say,
And now instead of Maybelline we swear by Retin-A.

They send us invitations to  join AARP,
We've come a long way, baby, from the Land That  Made Me Me.

So now we face a brave new world in  slightly larger jeans,
And wonder why they're using smaller  print in magazines.

And we tell our children's  children of the way it used to be,
Long ago and far away in  the Land That Made Me Me.

Jay Leno

        Jay Leno wrote this; it's the Jay Leno we don't often see....   
"The other day I was reading Newsweek magazine and came across some poll data I found rather hard to believe. It must be true, given the source, right?
The Newsweek poll alleges that 67 percent of Americans are unhappy with the direction the country is headed, and 69 percent of the country is unhappy with the performance of the President.  In essence, 2/3's of the citizenry just ain't happy and want a change.

So being the knuckle dragger I am, I started thinking, ''What are we so  unhappy about?''
Is it that we have electricity and running water 24 hours a day, 7 days a week?

Is our unhappiness the result of having air conditioning in the summer and heating in the winter?

Could it be that 95.4 percent of these unhappy folks have a job?

Maybe it is the ability to walk into a grocery store at any time, and see more food in moments than Darfur has seen in the last year?

Maybe it is the ability to drive from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean without having to present identification papers as we move through each state?

Or possibly the hundreds of clean and safe motels we would find along the way that can provide temporary shelter?

I guess having thousands of restaurants with varying cuisine from around the world is just not good enough.

Or could it be that when we wreck our car, emergency workers show up and provides services to help all, and even send a helicopter to take you to the hospital.

Perhaps you are one of the 70 percent of Americans who own a home. You may be upset with knowing that in the unfortunate case of a fire, a group of trained firefighters will appear in moments and use top notch equipment to extinguish the flames thus saving you, your famil y and your belongings.

Or if, while at home watching o NE of your many flat screen TVs, a burglar or prowler intrudes, an officer equipped with a gun and a bullet-proof vest will come to defend you and your family against attack or loss.

This all in the backdrop of a neighborhood free of bombs or militias raping and pillaging the residents.  Neighborhoods where 90 percent of teenagers own cell phones and computers.

How about the complete religious, social and political freedoms we enjoy that are the envy of everyone in the world?

Maybe that is what has 67 percent of you folks unhappy.

Fact is, we are the largest group of ungrateful, spoiled brats the world has ever seen. No wonder the world loves the U.S. , yet has a great disdain for its citizens . They see us for what we are. The most blessed people in the world who do nothing but complain about wh at we d on't have , and what we hate about the country instead of thanking the good Lord we live here.

I know, I know. What about the President who took us into war and has no  plan to get us out? The President who has a measly 31 percent approval  rating? Is this the same President who guided the nation in the dark days after 9/11? The President that cut taxes to bring an economy out of recession? Could this be the same guy who has been called every name in the book for succeeding in keeping all the spoiled ungrateful brats safe from terrorist attacks?

The Commander-In Chief of an all-volunteer army that is out there defending you and me? Did you hear how bad the President is on the news or talk show? Did this news affect you so much, make you so unhappy you couldn't take a look around for yourself and see all the good things and be glad?

Think about it...are you upset at the President because he actually caused you personal pain OR is it because the "Media" told you he was failing to kiss your sorry ungrateful behind every day.

Make no mistake about it. The troops in Iraq and Afghanistan have volunteered to serve, and in many cases may have died for your freedom. There is currently no draft in this country. They didn't have to go.

They are able to refuse to go and end up with either a ''general'' discharge, an ''other than honorable'' discharge or, worst case scenario, a ''dishonorable'' discharge after a few days in the brig.

So why then the flat-out discontentment in the minds of 69 percent of  Americans? 
Say what you want, but I blame it on the media. If it bleeds, it leads; and they specialize in bad news. Everybody will watch a car crash with blood and guts. How many will watch kids selling lemonade at the corner? The media knows this and media outlets are for-profit corporations. They offer what sells, and when criticized, try to defend their actions by "justifying" them in one way or another. Just ask why they tried to allow a murderer like O.J. Simpson to write a book about "how he didn't kill his wife, but if he did he would have done it this way"...Insane!

Stop buying the negativism you are fed everyday by the media. Shut off the TV, burn Newsweek, and use the New York Times for the bottom of your bird cage.  Then start being grateful  for all we have as a country. There is exponentially more good than bad.

We are a mong the most blessed people on Earth, and should thank God several times a day, or at least be thankful and appreciative.

"With hurricanes, tornados, fires out of control, mud slides, flooding, severe thunderstorms tearing up the country from one end to another, and with the threat of bird flu and terrorist attacks, "Are we sure this is a good time to take God out of the Pledge of Allegiance?"

Jay Leno 2007
Please keep this in circulation. There are so many people that need to read this and grasp the truth of it all.
