Justa Antagonizing The Boy!

It's the weekend.We went out for our Saturday morning breakfast. Cindy, myself, Shawn and Pat and Courtney. We almost had a basketball team. If your looking for somewhere to have a great breakfast at reasonable prices try Larkin's in down town Phoenix (as in Ny) If you get the pancakes you better get the short stack as they are hugeaaaaaa. Did you see where my whiny son was trying to make excuses for neglecting his step dad? We're going to go to the gym later today. Watch out it's almost a habit. Momma and I went out last night. Yeah, we went to Great Northern mall to Dunkin Donuts and people watched. Tell me I don't know how to have fun. I even got momma to buy the coffee. How bout that Debt Stimulus package that our Uncle is giving us. What are you going to do with your money? I think mine will just go into savings for when they want it back. You know that when Billary gets elected that our taxes will go up so might as well just save up for it.

I'm Justa saying

This is why men and women are different after looking at this is it any wonder we don't understand women?

Justa Dead Horse Whupping !

Corporate filly

The Dakota Indians of North America passed on this piece of wisdom from generation by word of mouth - "If you are riding a dead horse the best thing to do is dismount". However in the corporate world because of the heavy investment factor other things to be tried, (but not limited to) are the following * buy a stronger whip * change riders * threaten the horse with termination * appoint a committee to study the horse * arrange to visit other sites to see how they ride dead horses * lower the standards so dead horses can be included * appoint an intervention team to reanimate the horse * create a training session to increase the riders load share * reclassify the horse as 'living impaired' * change the form so it reads "This horse is not dead" * hire outside contractors to ride the dead horse * harness several dead horses together for increased speed and efficiency * donate the dead horse to a recognized charity therefore deducting its full original cost * provide additional funding to increase horse's performance * do a time management study to see if lighter riders would improve productivity * purchase an after market product that makes dead horses run faster * declare the dead horse has lower overheads and is therefore more cost effective * form a quality focus group to find profitable uses for dead horses * rewrite the performance requirements for horses * and finally if all else fails.....promote the dead horse into a supervisory (management) position

Brought to you by the fine folks at Arcamax. To my family: All this time you thought I was just a Dead Horse beater, when all along I have been in training for a management position. Momma and I went to the gym last night again. 2 times in a row. 28 more times and they say it will be a habit. We also stopped on the way home and had dinner-breakfast at B'ville Diner. We sat up front in one of the small booths near the road. It was better than sitting in the back, It had more of a sock hop feel to it. We had our eyes out for the mayor and his wife, it must have been their bed time. Momma and I have been having an on going conversations on how to shave some dollars off of our spending: Me: " Get rid of home phone since we have cell phones and they work very well at the house, and most people in family have Verizon like us so it's free." Momma:" Get rid of cell phones, because they cost $110.00 per month on our plan with our usage etc, instead of the home phone, which cost $34.00 per month." What do you guys think? I for one will not get rid of my cell phone as I now consider it "My personal communication Device" from the old Dick Tracy cartoons. I think it's amazing that you can be any where and reach just about any one at any time to talk about anything for as long as you want unless of course someone is screening their calls and that's a whole nother story don't get me going on that one.

Justa Company I would want to work for, Don't You think?

Qualities of Leadership Can you imagine working at the following Company? It has a little over 500 employees with the following statistics:

29 have been accused of spousal abuse 7 have been arrested for fraud 19 have been accused of writing bad checks 117 have bankrupted at least two businesses 3 have been arrested for assault 71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit 14 have been arrested on drug-related charges 8 have been arrested for shoplifting 21 are current defendants in lawsuits 84 were stopped for drunk driving

Can you guess which organization this is?

It's the 535 members of the United States Congress. The same group that perpetually cranks out hundreds upon hundreds of new laws designed to keep the rest of us in line.

Amazing don't u think? Just another example of the decline of our moral fibre.

Justa Trying some new Things

OK back to my old happy go lucky self. Enough pouting. Enough of my female hormones flaring up. Enough saying enough. Gentlemen, and Tom. Valentines day is coming up. check this post out. Be sure to scroll down to the frugal tips for Valentines day post.The Simple Dollar is one of my favorite blogs. Trent almost always has some useful content. I'm typing this post out on a Google Document. As you can tell from some past comments, I really like google. The only thing they don't do for you is make the meals.(But they'll show you how) Hopefully I'll remember how to do the links so I can start getting some decent content links for things I'm reading. Went to Chiropractor again today yanked me around a little more and wants me to go to gym for some work on leg besides pool. So starting tomorrow I'll add some machine work in.

Justa Getting Some Things Off Of My Chest

Feeling a little unloved and rejected today! This too shall pass. I just asked each of my kids, Adrianne and Jeff, to get back to me on something. That was 2 days ago. Picture:(Holding hand on a..) Good thing it wasn't life threatening or anything. What is so pathetic, is that the request for return info is just a response to a joke that I sent them. (They don't know that though) It was a funny ha ha type moment that I was trying to share. See I can write about this here, because neither one of them are reading this thing anyway and it's a way for me to vent. But it is pathetic that you can't just check in once in a while. Anywayyyyyyy. I haven't done a damn thing today but sat on my butt reading other peoples blogs. And you know what. So what!! That is my job right now. Sitting on my butt and getting paid for it. I almost feel like a Democrat! lol. Po'd at wife at lunch about above topics and her reaction to my rant. Her: "Your over reacting, or misreading or something". Me: Words and actions or inactions mean things. I believe momma and I will be going to the gym this evening. The mood I'm in I don't really want to go but I have too to continue some progress that I have made weight wise not mentioned yet and physcially some improvement in my leg.

Justa Demolition Derby

Hellooooo. Hellllloooo out there. Is any body there? The tree fell did anybody hear it? This is planet Earth!! Just wanted to see if anybody was out It really is ok that your the only one reading this Tom. I haven't progressed on this thing like I've wanted. I'm getting bogged down with reading and research and just haven't pinned down a niche. I might not have a niche, Maybe it's an itch. Went to Chrio again today. He said the adjustment held, my legs are at least even. I Just need to build strength in the leg. How bout those Ny Giants. Cindy and I did our taxes last night. We used Turbo Tax. They make it extremely easy. We made out pretty good this year because of the tax credit for Cindy's car. This will be the first time we've gotten back a good little amount that doesn't have to go to a Truck registration or expense. I may have spoken to soon. Murphy will find something to do with the money, won't he? We had our share of Murphy moments this year, let him hang out at someone elses house next year, I'm kicking him out. Watch out for that baboon Melanie in parking lots, she'll ram your car and just take off. You've got to ask Mel about it. Lol. Momma is calling for dinner got to go Taco salad tonight, ummmmm.

Justa Splishing and a Splashing

That's right, you read it right. I, we, Cindy and I went to gym,pool. My list of excuses got eaten by Indy so..... I walked in the pool for about 20 minutes and sat in Jacuzzi for about 15 minutes. It was good to get back there. Some new muscles are hurting on my leg, that's a good thing, in that since the adjustment on Friday I've been able to have a little better gait when walking. "Fair are the prospects all ahead." Cindy has been making some awesome meals lately. Last night we had, Spinach with oranges and other sundries salad, Chicken something or other in the Crockpot. Ummmm. The other day she made homemade Potato soup. Watch out food channel here she comes. The super bowl is starting so I want to get in and watch the commercials. Out....
