And The Winner Of The Mega Millions Lotto is...



I understand 3 tickets won the jackpot. I bet it will be some nut case that has money up the ass already or some old fart near death anyway. Worse case some Welfare Mommas with so many kids that she don't know who the fathers are for half of them. Plus she will blow it all on drugs, booze, clothes and new toys (cars etc) They will stand at the press conference and praise Jesus. (Nothing wrong with that, just saying) OK so I have too much time on my hands to think about it.

What would I have done if I would have won??  Set up 5 trust funds for my kids. Helped some family and close friends will bills, new cars, better living conditions, paid off mortgages, set them up for retirement.
For my wife and I,  2 new cars. Not talking really pricy cars. Min of 500 acres someplace up North.  A custom built  home that has Solar Power to go off grid,  A food pantry stocked floor to ceiling with food, water, medicine, etc.  Oh the house would be smack in the middle of the land. I would buy some guns, ammo to go all around. A true bunker. 


Like I said I have thought about it. That's why I would never win, I know what to do with the money in case I did.

Recycling Update


Back at the end of December I posted about recycling...recycling or what do you keep

Well I thought I would post an update. While we still toss out more then we should still, I am making an effort to keep what I feel will be of use around our place. My favorite around here as been our coffee cans. OK they are plastic now, but you get the idea. I took all my wife's Tea Bags and put her tea in one. I opened the cupboard one day and the box was upside down and they all dumped out into the sink. Glad the sink was dry. I also use one to store rice in. We had two open boxes of rice going.

I buy the big coffee creamer bottles. Since it has a snap to close top, I put sugar in one, about 5 lbs I think. A Peanut butter jar to put my zero calorie coffee sweeter in. I took a small glass jar and mixed some cinnamon/sugar in it for toast in the morning. Two large pickle jars are now being used for all of our over sized spoons and such we use for cooking, and our long bladed knifes. We bought a jug of OJ a few weeks ago and my wife pick up one that looks like a pitcher and we use that for cold water or mixing up kool-aid.

I am going to take 2 small glass jars that we had some sweet n soar sauce in, turn them into salt and pepper shakers. Some folks would think REDNECK on some of these, but hey what ever works. Sorry I don't have any photos. I can't download from our camera cause our cable we use to hook to computer broke, and I can never get my hands on my cell phone, that has been overrun by my wife and youngest daughter. More for internet then texting.

Stay Safe, and Stay Alert.

New York City-funded group teaching homeless how to invade apartments


I know many folks don't like cut n past news stories but I think this one is worth copying......


It’s breaking and entering for dummies.
Picture the Homeless, a Bronx nonprofit that has received at least $240,000 in taxpayer money in the last five years, is giving a crash course on squatting — and city-owned buildings are a prime target.
Two weeks ago, board member Andres Perez held a teach-in on how to wrest “control” of vacant apartments. He called it “homesteading.”
“The best time to enter a building is in the late hours,” he advised a group of about 20, who gathered in front of the half-empty East New York, Brooklyn, housing complex Arlington Village.
“You make sure you have your proper tools. You remove the chains and padlock, and then you go in.”
He then led them through the next steps — including filling out a change-of-address form at the post office and setting up utilities. After that, “nine out of 10 times the courts will allow you to be able to have control of the property,” he said.
But squatting school outraged legal residents of Arlington Village.
“I can’t let nobody squat where I live,” said Pete Rolon, 64, a 35-year resident who claimed pimps had grabbed two apartments in the complex. “There were hookers. They were smoking crack. There were condoms all over the floor. There were hundreds of them.”

Long Hot Summer

I have been making this comment on some fellow bloggers sites. We had a short winter in some areas of the country, and spring and warmer temps have been in abundance. We have already had some storms do major damage in some areas.

Now I think the term LONG HOT SUMMER, means something else. Our old friends the Occupy Idiots are already up to their old games, So that will be a problem all summer, into the fall, Election 2012 is in full swing, Our head Occupy Idiot's re elect me campaign, will start putting out more lies and spins faster then a washer on spin cycle.  Now we have this powder keg killing/self defense B.S. here in Fla. The "NEW" Black Panther Party has put out posters saying Zimmerman is wanted dead or alive. To top that off they are willing to pay out $10,000.00 to anyone bring him in.

On our local news tonight via ABC News a friend of Zimmerman has come forward and said that this kid and Zimmerman were in a fight to the death. Zimmerman did receive injuries. Now all the radical black leaders are making their point of view known. Mr. Sharpden has been here, and Mr. J. Jackson is now in town.  Our local lumber yards and garden centers are having a run on wood chips. Because each and every supporter of this cause is walking around with a chip on their shoulders looking for a fight.  This by the way is my own opinion.

While I don't have a problem with any one race, but IMHO the blacks are the first to play that race card. So fast you can all most hear the sonic boom that it makes. The Liberal Left is having a field day with all of this.

Now another problem we all are having is the prices we pay for everything is going up. I am on a fixed budget of $900.00 a month for food for 7 people. Luckily my boys chip in and buy food for us. I know we need to do more of this and that, but we live in an apartment so growing anything is out.

Anyway that is all I have to say, But remember this it will be a LONG HOT SUMMER, Stay Alert, and lets keep up the fight to survive. May God bring blessings to you and your family, and God bless this mess we call home.

Two Schools Of Thought

Two schools of thought on one of Father In Law's favorite paintings:

1. The name "The Helping Hand" captures the sentiment as this tiny gift from God is under the wing of the seasoned mariner, learning to do what she can to help with the capability she has been given at each stage of her life.

2. The name of this painting should be "Stubborn Little Dutch Girl" as anyone can see that she, in fact, does not even have her hands around the oar and couldn't be pulling! Therefore, she is pushing the oar against the efforts of the old dude and, in so doing, is making his life more meaningless and miserable with each stroke.
(Pick one if you wish)

New Photos Of Our Idiot In Chief

New photos of our leader have surfaced.....

State Of The Union.....



New Campaign Poster Aimed At The Occupy Movement, For His Re-Election..........
Sorry Cookie Monster



New Recruiting Poster

There Was A Time When.....

Remember back in the day when we spent all our free time after school, weekends, and our summer vacation outside. Now days if you see a group of kids outside some think its a gang looking to cause trouble. I used to have a ten speed bike, I was on that bike all the time. I would bike like 25 miles without thinking about some nut trying to grab me to abuse me or maybe even kill me.

When we were kids a group of us would ride around the block or even go down to the park and play for hours. Our Moms would have to drive down to tell us it was dinner time. Dinner?? That was the original fast food. Mom would spend time making us a great meal, but we would run in slam down our food so we could get back outside playing.

Ah the good old days. Take the time today to stop and reflect on days gone by and all the fun we had. No stress of work, money, and everything else. So my friends I ask you to enjoy life because it is going by so fast. Have a good day. Stay Alert, and please Stay Safe. Something we never had to think about.

Updates


I just wanted to post some updates for all. I still can not reply. Which saves everyone from me being a smartass sometimes. My MIL is doing better. She now has to use a walker or wheelchair to get around. My IL decided to sell their house in AZ. They listed the house this past Monday, and it was sold yesterday. 24 hrs. The buyer is paying cash. Closes in 30 days. Yesterday we found out that the assisted living center they are moving into is not in AZ, but back in MN. After 25 yrs of retirement in AZ they are returning home.

My uncle is now awake and has the breathing tube removed. He is to leave ICU today, but will be in the hospital awhile longer. So more stress have been lifted, but more remains. Still issue among my family here at home. My stress level stays high. I pray every day that these will get resolved. I posted a few weeks ago about starting my own business. I am not getting anyplace. A few places have even not returned my emails seeking more information. This has been going on for the last 3 years. I have had Professional Corporate Flight Attendants tell me how high priced everything is and how I should start my own business. But when I tell them to send some business my way. Its like talking to the wall.

When we had the All Star Basketball game here, I was told to contact a guy who needed help with catering. OK with me. But no one gave me his cell number. HOW CAN I HELP, when you don't help me. The person who told me about him lives in Ca. Hello I'm in Florida and she knew that. Work with me here. Toss me a bone.

Anyway that is the latest. If anyone wants a reply from me just email me at robsrangers11 at Yahoo.com.

I Just Have To Pass This On To Everyone


This is for all the Occupy Anything people because they believe in the Idiot in Chief.

I Can't Post Comments


I just wanted to let you all know that for some unknown reason I can't reply to any postings on any blogs, even my own. I know some folks have had this problem also. It must be with BLOGGER. I did make changes as far as cookie tracking but I changed the settings back. Anyway I can read your postings but my silence is not my choice for now.

Some People Don't Have A Clue

 I just saw our apartment complex Ops Manager, he just gave 4 apartments eviction notices, because they failed to pay rent since Dec. 2011. He said they all were shocked that they had to move. 4 months come on people get a clue. Thank the lord it wasn't us. The complex has been more then fair. These folks have know since December that if they don't pay up their out. The lawyer who is hailing the evictions had his secretary pass away, so the evictions went on hold. 
 

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day. Be Safe, Stay Alert, Watch Out For The Drivers Who Had A Little Too Much.

Happy Birthday

So I thought long and hard about this. Should I wish someone a Happy Birthday or not. They don't like a fuss being made. Its no big deal, its just another day, another year older, another day grayer, another day to lose more hair. 

Just another day on the roller coaster of life... 

So to that very special friend who turns another year older I just want to say this to you my dear old friend...

                    HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME



                               
 
And one more thing......................




So I blew my own horn, Someone has to do it, and today that's me the big 52.

Family Health Update


As you all remember a few posts ago that both my Mother in Law and Uncle are in the hospital. My MIL is now in a Rehab Facility in Phoenix and doing better. But the question remains will she ever go back home?? All my brother in laws are making the rounds and going to Phoenix to see her and check on my FIL. I have some wonderful Sister in laws and nieces who are  RN's  and have been going there too. Not only to check on both of them but so my FIL knows what's going on.  My wife is very stressed right know as she wants to be by her mothers side, but we can not find a way there.

My Uncle on the other hand is not doing well at all. He is still unconscious. He is on life support. My Dad emailed me today and said that at this time the Dr's back in Minnesota are talking about doing a brain scan to check for brain activity. While my wife wants to be in Phoenix, I feel a strong need to be in Minneapolis with my family. I pray every day and night that things will work out for my family.

On top of all of this my oldest son wants to move out on his own. I can't stop him, but he is adding to the stress level of the rest of the family. He is having issues with his girl friend. The ugly head of the financial monster is starting to awake from its slumber. I am at the point that I am so tired of waiting for my SSD to get approved. Right now I am owed around $ 16,000.00  So close but still out of reach. I am ready to go back to work, I don't care how much pain I am in when I walk, bend and everything else.

 I can just be sitting and not do anything my right foot will feel like it did the night I crushed it. I have talked to Dr's about it but they will not do anything for it. Here in Florida so many Dr's are under the microscope for mismanagement of pain meds we suffer, those who do need it.

To my friends who have prayed for us thank you and for the words of encouragement also.  I realize everyone has there own problems and right now I am using this forum to vent. Thank you for stopping by, blessings to you and your family.

What You Can Find On The Net


Yep, you can find out a lot on the internet. For example I ran my name, I went to MIT, and I am a Dr., Who knew I was so smart.  A friend from a former employer sent me an email earlier this week, asking me if I had heard the latest rumor about the companies former executives. They "Retired" when their company, BJ&J was sold to another company. That companies owner TPS is arrested for a Ponzi scam a few years later. 

I sent out some emails to some friends telling them about the rumor that my ex bosses had bought 51% of another company, XYZ Inc. A friend in TX replies, I know someone at XYZ.  Source at XYZ says the buy in did not happen. But they, my former bosses, are a client of XYZ. He can't say anymore then that due to his position at XYZ. But he gives me a clue to the truth.

I hope you are still with me. I don't want to release anyone's names. SO being a good snoop that I am I start surfing the net. With in a few hours I have the name of their new company, ABC LLC, and I also find documents filed with the Federal government. I could have sent one email to my former boss and ask point blank, but hey what's the fun in that. I believe that my old bosses tried to buy back their old company but could not come up with $ 40 million that another company paid out last year, to the estate of the Ponzi scam to pay his investors back. One of the other companies he (JPS) own was Polaroid Camera.

So for around a Million dollars give or take, my old bosses have started a another company. They did it twice before in 1982/83 they started it. Sold out a few years later.  Bought that company again in 2002 when it was in Chap 7 Bankruptcy, Due to the 9-11 attacks. Turned the company around, sold it again a few years later. The company again had to file Chap 11 2 years after it was sold to Ponzi Scam man to keep it from the Feds.

If you don't follow again send me a email and I will try to fill in the blanks better. The moral of the story is you can find out anything on line.

Stress Level Pegged Higher - Another Family Member Ill


Just found out that my Dad's brother was found unconscious outside in a dog park. He had a heart attack and has been placed in a coma for the next 48 hrs. He had blockage in several places. The Drs are not sure of brain damage as of yet. So at this point we need to go to Arizona and Minnesota at the same time.

We can't get to either place due to the cost of air fare or bus fare. So I am spending a lot of time praying. I feel like I have been kicked in the stomach. My Mother in law is doing better. Still in the hospital but doing much, much better. Father in law said that mom in law came close to death.

So I just want to thank everyone for their kind words and prayers for our family.

Mother In Law Health Update


I just wanted to thank each and everyone who have sent well wishes and prayers. My MIL is doing much better. My BIL & SIL have been in Phoenix since Thursday night. My SIL is a nurse so she has been talking with my FIL in plain English so he understand what's going on. You know the medical staff sometimes what they tell you goes over your head. Turns out she has pneumonia. She has not felt good for a few days, and my FIL keep telling her she needed to be seen. Well being stubborn as she is she refused. She finally gave in on Thursday.

We also found out that she has a leak in a heart valve. Due to her age they will not be able to operate. She will be in the hospital for a few more days. Then she will go home. So as so today we will not need to go to Phoenix, but my wife wants to go just as soon as we can come up with the money. Now we have to try and come up with money to pay for airfare or bus fare, money to eat, and maybe even a hotel room. I think we could stay at my In Laws, but I don't want to assume anything
My wife seems to feel like this will be the last chance we have to see her. 



So please continue to pray for us and please pray for the victims and family's of the tornado's that have hit our country. Strange thing when other country's suffer We The People of the United States always offer help. But when we suffer, they seem to turn their backs on U.S.

Please pray for the officials, on all levels that they will make the right choices over the next few days and months of recovery.

Time Away - Mother In Law In Bad Health


Fellow bloggers, I may have to take a break from blogging. We just found out that my Mother-in-law is in the hospital in Arizona. We under stand she is unconscious. So we are burning up the phone lines, and trying to figure out how my wife and I are going to get to Arizona. The kids will have to stay here. Not an issue since they are all older.

I will keep everyone updated when we find out more.

Deep In Thought


As many of you know I have been thinking about starting my own business as a consultant.  I have two possible leads.  I sent an email to a gentlemen in Denver about whether his company would need a department representative to keep an eye on things. He stated that he had just had a breakfast meeting with his boss yesterday. They had talked about the company expanding here in Orlando. He thought it would be a good idea to find someone to work with some vendors here.   
The second lead is also a company expanding here but is a new company starting up and will be serving the market here.

I do believe that this maybe the way to go, I believe that God is opening the doors for me. I have been praying heavily the past week.  If these don’t work out I will not give up and keep looking for opportunities.  I have been thinking about how I should approach these companies. So over the next few days I will be deep in thought spending a lot of time and energy working on a proposal for both of them.

On a different note, March 1st already, spring is around the corner. With the lack of snow around the country, I do think our storm season is going to be wild. I hope I am wrong on this on. Have a great day everyone. Thanks for stopping by today to visit me in my bunker.
