I am just appalled!

I know that there are some awful stuff out there on the internet! But this has to really take the cake, after people have been prosecuted for having participated in these types activities!

On the website there was a link:

Please help stop this horrible site for Promoting Dog Fighting In Your Neighborhoods

So I clicked on the link: CLICK HERE!

What a shock I was in for!!!! I swear I thought this was illegal!!!!! People have been prosecuted for participating in these types of activities!

What gall these people have! How can they be such ASSHATS as to promote this type of activity!

I did a search on their phone number listed on their site: 404-551-5587
and it came back as:

Exchange: 404-551-5587
State: Georgia
County: Fulton
City: Atlanta
ZIP Code: 30312
Carrier: Broadwing Communications, Llc Ga

Does any of you reading my blog, have any idea how to put a stop to this??? If so please leave a comment!

Ever Feel Old?

Or that you just can't remember doing something? Well I use to think my mom was nuts sometimes. Well guess what? I do things now that my mom use to complain about! WOW! Dejavu??? LOL

Some days are worse than others of course, and for the most part, it is stupid little things.

A lady asked Dr. OZ on Oprah the other day a question. She had given birth a few months earlier, and she said that after the baby was born, she would be making conversation and a simple word would just escape her mind. She said it was very frustrating and that she wanted to know what to do about it. (I feel her pain!)

Well Dr. Oz (Love that man), replied that while you are PG, the baby uses up and takes most of your OMEGA fats and oils from your body. This is what helps your brain to function. Also while you are PG a woman's brains shrinks 8%! WOW! But it all comes back after the baby is born. Something to do with your body concentrating on the child within.

Before your heart skips a beat, I AM NOT PREGNANT!

So to help the problem you should take an OMEGA supplement while your are pregnant and even after. I think I will get me some Omega's!

You can see the segment of Oprah here:


It was very interesting and I could listen to him talk all day long.

Horse Sale this weekend

Hermiston had their horse sale this weekend. So I go check it out. It always breaks my heart to see them run through. I did see a couple of good ones, but Rick told me that if I brought anything home that had a beating heart, and breathed, he would MOVE OUT! How cruel is that!? HAHA....But I totally understand.

Here is Simon our goofy cat! He had just come in from outside, and had webs or something hanging from his whiskers. He is such a goof ball! I think he wakes up every day in a whole new world! There are a days when he looks at me as if he has never seen me before! LOL. But he is a sweety, and thoroughly bonded to Sydney, our Golden Retriever.

The moon picture appeared on the KNDU news this morning at 6:15AM. I love to see my pictures featured on the show. I have sent in several and they are really good about sharing them with viewers. This was taken of the full moon two nights ago. I took about 30 pictures to get a good one. Moons are so hard to get pictures of.

The other photo is of Taumee our dog, and Screech the cat. Screech was an orphaned kitten that seeked out human comfort due to survival! His mom, a feral cat, got hit by a car. He and his sisters came across our pasture because they were starving to death. Homes were found for all 5 kittens and I kept Screech! He is the neatest cat ever. He picks on the dogs. At times I do feel sorry for them, but they hold their own with him. When they are all outside, Screech goes for walks with them too.

Last horse lesson for the year.

Well today was my last lesson for the winter. Oh Sissy won't be having a break of course, as I still plan on riding, but with the weather it can get pretty unpredictable.

Sissy does very well. She tends to yawn a lot too! Today we did a lot of trotting at my class. The most trotting that I have done on horseback since I was a kid! WOW! Sissy did good though, when I got off balance she would stop.

As we trotted around the round pen, I feel like I am bobbing in the saddle like yo-yo, and my instructor says, "Now I want you to relax". I have this vision of me, bouncing up and down, and she wants me to RELAX!!!! I just busted up laughing, and in doing so, I lost all concentration, and Sissy immediately STOPPED! Wow! She is so good.

While riding her yesterday, she did spook twice on me, both times from my friends horse, but when I said WHOA! She stopped....that gave me a lot of confidence there, in that when Sissy spooks she is not a run-a-way horse.

That is it for today!

50 Years to late.

This blog is like 50 years to late. I read other blogs, and today I thought I would set one up just to see how it goes. I wanted to start one a few months back, and track my training with my horse, Sissy but time did not allow it. So I will start here, and move forward. So if anyone wants me to share on my blog, please feel free to email me, and I will see what I can do. I will also put up links to your blog, or website also. IF IT IS FAMILY FRIENDLY ONLY! This first blog is a test to see if I know how to navigate around. All this takes some figuring out, and it is a learning process. I don't think it will be to hard though, and I look forward to entertaining you.
