The Foibles of Facebook

I'm amazed how this jerk can keep compromising my Facebook account. My friend says he's coming in the back door of Facebook - not through my account. It seems to be the truth, because I have so much security on both my computers. But it really makes me mad that I have to give up so much time on my page to suit this geek. I don't understand why Facebook doesn't have more security for such occurrences for it's users.

I've re-opened my other account and am going to go to it permanently once I get the other one back. I'm going to snag all my pictures and other usables and put them on my alternative page and then delete my old page.

I have adjusted to wearing my upper plate now, I still hate it with a passion, but I will have to deal with it 'til I can find a way to get the money to get replace the darned thing with dental implants. Believe me when I say you do NOT want plates at all!

We are still in a quandry as to where to move when we retire. If anyone has any suggestions, please - tell me. Right now Southern Utah is in the primary running spot. We want a three bedroom home with two baths and everything needs to be updated, no more repair work for us! Also, a location with LOW property taxes, preferrably no state tax and just a little land, so we can keep a veggie garden in the Summer. If possible, near a VA Hospital and other medical services. Any ideas?

Tony and I are certainly worried about what the new U.S. Healthcare Plan will do to our medical concerns after we retire. Since the bill is slated to cut $80 billion dollars from Medicare we are VERY concerned. Those of you reading this really ought to be concerned too, since it will carry over to you and your children as well.

Do not think you will escape the Socialist/Marxist policies rendered by the Obama administration, it won't just go away.

The Real Deal

Don and Helen Peery left yesterday and we had such a wonderful visit! We spent all our time reminiscing about all our old friends, our children and grandchildren. Life has certainly taken us all in such different directions. Yet we are all still faithful in the church, happy in spite of our trials and tribulations.

Today ended quite badly. We began to have gale force winds this afternoon and when a particularly high wind blew across our neighborhood this afternoon at about 4:30 PM it blew pipes off the North side of our house. Then immediately after that we heard a very LOUD crack, and when it was done we saw that our old jasmine tree had been literally lifted out of the ground and came crashing down on the neighbor's back staircase to their second story. It crushed both the bottom landing and stairs of the staircase and the fence between our yards. But the worst of it was that the tree ripped all the electrical lines out of their house. It is 7:30 PM and the DWP has still not come to remove the live wires and re-connect the neighbor's electrical lines.

I'm very frustrated and angry and don't have any way to make this all go away. I hate being at the mercy of the utility company and I KNOW our neighbor and she will sue us over this. I could just scream!

Spent the day getting ready for the Peery' visit. I'm really excited to see my dear friends (and cousin, Helen) Don and Helen Peery. We have been friends for more than 35 years. We will be going to their daughter Samantha's grave while they are here. Samantha died of cancer about 3 years ago - very sad. We will also be attending the children's sacrament program at church on Sunday and then in the evening we will be going to the Betty Stevenson fireside. It will be a very busy, but happy weekend. I have already planned our menus so we can enjoy dining together on some really great dishes, including catfish and hushpuppies.

I am alarmed at how many of our friends and their children have been suffering from Swine Flu - it is really enveloping the USA.

Tomorrow we say goodbye to our long-time friend, Dee Todd. She passed away from the effects of myrsa, and suffered terribly for the past year. Dee was a sweet, unassuming soul, she leaves her children to survive her.

I remain significantly concerned about the passage of a healthcare bill in the U.S. Senate. We inch closer and closer to absolute socialism. It's intriguing to me how the majority of Americans are not at all concerned about this.

I'm terribly worried that soon we will no longer have the power of the U.S. Constitution to protect us at all.
