CINDY VS QUASI LOL




Isn't it a different world , blogging I mean , I have been at it for a short period of time but really

like it making friends and I love seeing comments from different people from all over the place , they are diverse as the

places they call home . I am not naive at all or so I like to think , and I know what you see is not

always what you get , point being , you really don't know who you are talking to or commenting

with , sure there are little pics up for Bio shots if one dares to place their own mugs on the line ,

but how do we know that Aunt Sally Sue isn't a harry construction worker named Bob , that is

the reality of this system but we all like to think that who we are talking to fits into what

our perception is , I had a recent experience with reading a persons blog , whom I thought was a female and

friendly and turned out to be neither to my surprise .I did not comment on this persons blog

just read ., it was in the past entries I found out my mistake . We go on our gut , we have no

worries

as they cannot see us if we do not want them too, and we have some shield as to what we let

them in on . I also made the mistake of visualizing what another blogger looked like and when

the pics came up , it was totally off , strange how our minds can picture a person being a certain

image from words they print on a page . I have not placed my pic on my bio as I live in a small

city with numerous friends who are not into computers much and I really do not want to be

their reason for starting LOL . I am what my name appears, a green eyed girl from planet earth LOL ,

the rest I will let you


fill in yourselves , make me beautiful , ugly , striking ,toothless, short,tall,buxom , flat , thin , thick ,dark, light ,

bald ,curls , Cinderella or Quasimodo ,whatever you please , beauty does not come in a human package it is incased in ones

soul :)

Good night all , may you all be blessed with a good soul LOL

I have been tinkering around a little with the computer and trying to get things the way I want them , some is completed, some well,,,,,,lets just say will take some time . I, for now, have stopped trying to fancy up the ol' blog with gadgets , although I am envious of those who are so into it all with ease uhhhhmmmmm ie:(MEOW the queen ). I know the problem , the time I have online is limited ,as I don't get much but do require sleep (it is currently 3:30 am) My days are busy , and with changing comp's all alone and learning programs(NEW) and etc etc, Hope it doesn't sound like I am whining , I am not at all, just trying to convince myself that there has to be more like me out there , I have posted about some of this before ,I thank those who offer their help , I will be asking LOL.
My scanner now since changing over is saying the TWAIN is my web cam and will not let me change it , I click on :where to get pic ,,,block says "scanner" ,,, comes up web cam ,,,,,,, WTF and will not let me change it and has direct feed to web cam , it(scanner worked fine on other comp) and I have checked webcam is not hooked up to scanner and all is right in connections ,,,,,,, I am no fool , I know something is amiss and checked connections and redone the disc on file and nope ! any takers on this one out there ????? I have tried ,and will continue to do so . but for now I am going to cuddle up with the cat and watch Sex in the city till I fall asleep , every hear of it? Sex in the city I mean.

Hi, my name is Greeneyes,and I am a Chocoholic.......







It has been about a week or more that I have given up sweets,*Big sigh* It has been a hard unsweet journey and at times rather frustrating, not just chocolate but cookies ,pies ,etc, well I fell of the wagon ( hangs head , not in shame but looking for more chocolate in stash drawer:) I don't think I will try to give it up COLDTURKEY (ha ha) again ,I never gave up . My theory is this , I am what I am ! a sweet freak! I guess that would make me sweet LOL . It seemed the whole time I try to resist, it was more tempting , while if I just had it when I wanted, it didn't sneak up on me and make me have cravings from HELL . I use to smoke many moons ago and for some time and I found it easier to quit than this , go figure! Well I conquered it for awhile and know I can live without it and by the way Claudia if you are reading this there is not a turtle left standing (ha ha) ,they were the first casualties of my attack :) but not my last , I am headed for Meows cadbury dairymilk/caramello's yummmmmmmmmmmmeeeeeeee . Enjoy life , it goes by so quick.have a great day/night

some THINGS around here .......

Pothead /pilot whale


Humpback






This is a picture of HUMBER river which runs alongside of one of our main highways , it is beautiful all times of the year , this was this fall past. the colours speak for themselves and are very diverse as the trees are varied along the shore and quite full. This river view is around 4/5 min drive from my front door , alot of our area in fall looks like this , maybe that is why it is my favorite time of the year . This river is about I am guessing (50 miles) or so and runs directly into the Atlantic Ocean a few minutes from me as well. I can drive two minutes and stand by the Atlantic Ocean , It is beautiful , a little ways out you can see whales jumping and at times see caplin(Small 6 - 10 inch tiny silvery fish) rolling (which means coming right into the shore and jumping and twitching , this is called spawning) you can actually pick them up in nets or whatever and is done here regularly once a year. I do not participate , I do not eat them so I dont catch them, but it is great fun for kids and those who eat them. My cats loves them, but of course you say,,,, duh! The whales are around more when these caplin are spawning they follow them as a food source not to the shore but really close, it is a great site to see at our cabins door ,20 minutes from here , no binoculors needed to see the whales jump and frolick and different times of the year you can see if watching alot , smaller Pot head whales in schools and they can be in the hundreds. It is glorious no matter how many times you see it .

Just some extra info on whales we have around here :interesting if you like to read it :)

There are many misconceptions about cetaceans (whales, dolphins and porpoises), the most common of which is the idea that cetaceans are fish. They're not - they are mammals, like you and me. Millions of years ago, they lived on land; their bodies were covered in hair, they had external ears, they walked on four legs, they bore live young.
the whales we see here ,mostly are two types

Humpback Whale
Length: 11 to 13 m, up to 16 m
Weight: 25 to 30 t, up to 35 t
Longevity: 30 to 50 years
Dive time: 8 to 15 min, up to 30 min
Sociability: Solitary, often in pairs of groups
Worldwide population: Possibly 20 000 worldwide
A singer and an acrobat, its tail emerges from the water when it dives. This is the best known of the cetaceans. Over 7500 humpback whales swim thousands of kilometres every year between their mating grounds in the Caribbean and their feeding grounds in the North Atlantic. The humpback whale is now the best known of all the large whales. Over the last few years our knowledge of this still precarious species has progressed rapidly. This is partly because individuals are so easy to identify. As well, the spectacular nature of this species has attracted the attention of numerous scientists and fans alike.

/
Long-Finned Pilot Whale
Length: 4 to 5 m, up to 8 m
Weight: 2 to 3.5 t
Longevity: 25 to 50 years
Dive time: 4 to 10 min
Sociability: Highly gregarious
Worldwide population: Unknown, but abundant
The long-finned pilot is jet black or dark grey with a grey or white diagonal stripe behind each eye and a big round forehead (melon). They are sometimes known as the pothead whale because the shape of their head reminded early whalers of black cooking pots! They are very social, family animals and may travel in groups of up to 100 with one animal acting as leader. Long-finned pilot whales often strand themselves on beaches - because they have strong family bonds, when one animal strands the rest of the pod tend to follow. They are very active and can often be seen lobtailing and spyhopping. The younger ones also breach but this is rare in adults. Pilot whales generally takes several breaths before diving for a few minutes. Feeding dives, when they are looking for squid or fish, may last for 10 minutes or more. They are capable of diving to depths of 600m but most dives are 30 - 60m.

CARROTS,EGGS,COFFEE..............


This is an email from a friend of mine and I thought I would post it here to share this "insight" with you all ,I havent done that before but really like this , hope you do as well ,if you dont thats ok too , maybe your a Egg! LOL , I dont know where she got it so credit cannot be given , if someone knows feel free to inform .

CARROTS, EGGS, COFFEE......This is just too great not to pass on....You will never look at a cup of coffee the same way again...A young woman went to her mother and told her about her life and how things were so hard for her. She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give up. She was tired of fighting and struggling. It seemed as one problem was solved, a new one arose.Her mother took her to the kitchen. She filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Soon the pots came to boil. In the first she placed carrots, in the second she placed eggs, and in the last she placed ground coffee beans. She let them sit and boil, without saying a word.
In about twenty minutes she turned off the burners. She fished the carrots out and placed them in a bowl. She pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl. Then she ladled the coffee out and placed it in a bowl. Turning to her daughter, she asked, "Tell me what you see.""Carrots, eggs, and coffee," she replied.
Her mother brought her closer and asked her to feel the carrots. She did and noted that they were soft. The mother then asked the daughter to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard boiled egg. Finally, the mother asked the daughter to sip the coffee.
The daughter smiled as she tasted its rich aroma.The daughter then asked, "What does it mean, mother?
"Her mother explained that each of these objects had faced the same adversity - boiling water. Each reacted differently. The carrot went in strong, hard, and unrelenting. However, after being subjected to the boiling water, it softened and became weak. The egg had been fragile. Its thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior, but after sitting through the boiling water, its inside became hardened. The ground coffee beans were unique, however. After they were in the boiling water, they had changed the water.
"Which are you?" she asked her daughter. "When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?"Think of this: Which am I? Am I the carrot that seems strong, but with pain and adversity do I wilt and become soft and lose my strength?

Am I the egg that starts with a malleable heart, but changes with the heat? Did I have a fluid spirit, but after a death, a breakup, a financial hardship or some other trial, have I become hardened and stiff? Does my shell look the same, but on the inside am I bitter and tough with a stiff spirit and hardened heart? Or am I like the coffee bean? The bean actually changes the hot water, the very circumstance that brings the pain. When the water gets hot, it releases the fragrance and flavor. If you are like the bean, when things are at their worst, you get better and change the situation around you.When the hour is the darkest and trials are their greatest, do you elevate yourself to another level? How do you handle adversity? Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?


May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human and enough hope to make you happy.The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.

The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past; you can't go forward in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches.
May we all be COFFEE. . .
I HOPE I AM STRONG STRONG COFFEE,,,,,,,WHAT ARE YOU?????????

Customer Services


I was very busy getting ready for a house visit from a Doctor ,yes they still do that sometimes , It is for a sick child who is unable to go to clinic. Well anyway my vacuum cleaner used daily sometimes twice a day (we have pets) ,died on me and only a large hand held dust buster left , that would not do. I asked my hubby to go and purchase a vacuum cleaner somewhat like the one we own, off he went(did I say he was a good Man, well he is ) he comes back all in a huff and tells me what happened .

Here goes: he is in the store and sees the vacuum we want and gets it and notices it is on sale, big yellow flappy paper saying so !He gets at cash ,no sale on , he goes back where all the stickers were posted and the person in that dept just tore them off and denied they were ever there!. He buys vacuum and tells clerk he will be questioning it with Manager . Comes home and calls Manager, Manager says will call back , doesn't , he calls her and she says very snappy , that model had not been on sale for 2 years! He says your calling me a liar? She says ,,no, but it is what it is , it hasn't been on sale for 2 years so no flyer price could be posted blah blah . and was very abrupt with him, He said well I know what I saw and now it is the principal of the matter to prove her wrong , not the money the difference was only $ 36.00 Can. So he tells the manager well I will go farther with this and she is like ,,,SO, Oh well!

Now usually he would not call in the first place, and then follow up with something like this is unlike him, but he calls the customer service dept of main office , asked first ,When this product was last on sale and would like to make a complaint.They check , the last sale ended Sunday past BINGO!!!!!!! he proceeds to tell them (On phone ) what had happened and that the floor clerk must have removed it just after he picked up the vacuum and denied doing so.(The reason denied , it is there job to make sure all sales tickets as such are removed because posted price is by law the price) The real trouble with this is that the mananger had a nasty attitude , you know the kind , like ,why are you bothering me , be gone with you!

Well the people on phone(cutstomer service-head office) put hubby on hold and came back and said please Sir ,Sorry , our mistake, etc. how can we help etc . They said they certainly hope it was an human error as the manager said she looked it up ,,,,,,, ya right ,this is a Country wide"Canadian" chain of stores that have almost everything in there store on sale every few months, we shop there all the time we know .
Anyway after settling this with customer service he calles back the manager ,he wanted her to know he was not lying and it was her MISTAKE which wouldn't be a problem for anyone if she handled it better , She is now extremely friendly and says "Oh it was A mistake someone punched in wrong the item in or actually the sales clerk did, this is untrue, she said she did it while hubby was on phone 3 times and said NO vacuums have been on sale for some time and this model not since 2004 and it was impossible for the sale ticket to still be there !
We know she got a call from head office , they did so when hubby was on hold. She was NASTY an Wrong , great service huh? I bet she wasnt going to call and inform us either.I know people in the service industry deal with all kinds of Shi* but so does the consumer , especially when it comes to this barcode pricing and sales staff not wanting to do their job, I know it is hard and not what you probably want to be doing but hey it is a JOB ,most in this type of work are OK but the asshol** out there AHHHHHHHHHHHHH! if your treated fairly treat the person fairly. I hate being ripped off and then told it is all in your head, many times I had to bring something back , the price was wrong at check out , it is frustrating but this one is ,,,,,,,,,,, one up for the Customers YAHHHHH!!!!!

I wanted to cut her out of my life and wanted to tell people what she really was and that included her children , I wanted to hurt her ties with her family sooooooooo bad BUT I didnt, I dealt with it and eventually her true colors came SHINNING through and all was revealed , I took a little comfort in that but I try hard not to .

Just kidding!!!!
Sometimes you have to have a sense of humor, I love to laugh and try to have fun in everything , I try to make even the smallest part of life enjoyable , I mean come on now you know it is not 100% of the time, but the majority. Little things some take for granted I try to appreciate etc , I have seen alot of people in troubled times as many out there have and have seen my share or hardhips as well. Life , well it can be hard but you have to find something in it to make you happy and as long as it doesn't "HURT "anyone else , go for it . We sit and stew about this and that, that happened 5/10/20/ years ago or whenever and our life goes stale . what are we waiting for, if you cannot change your life in a large way, then find small pleaures in life , it does not have to bring happiness to anyone else , it could be a great movie, a new pair of shoes, a night off ,a bubble bath , a movie/evening with friends , or the sunshine on your face or the sound of a childs laughter , enjoy every last drop of happiness you can squeeze out of the day, you never know when it can get worse or be over. I have been waiting all my adult life to look like "Cindy Crawford , or some tall thin , long legged beauty , IT AINT GONNA HAPPEN!!!!!!!!! I am not unattractive(so I have been told) but as most woman I have my issues, and I am now as of this moment going to accept what I got and make the best of it . thick/thin, short/tall ,light/dark(my three eyes and 12 toes , warned ya giggle giggle*) and put the humor and fun into what is in the rest of my life into my self perception and hopefully will be merrily, merrily, merrily enjoying life. Anyone out there who feels unhappy, grumpy or negative about themselves , what are you waiting for , life will pass by ,have fun and enjoy every minute :)

Lindsays view










As I sit here quietly I can hear the beating of my heart, feel the moving of my hands and the warmth of my breath as it leaves my body, without a word my thoughts come ,wild and unchained waiting to be spoken but never will. waiting is something that I do in my life, it builds patience as I cannot control those of whom I wait upon,I wait and wait some more. Feelings flashing in my memories,bringing life to my soul,making me feel alive and feel light from dark. Happiness can be fleeting and so soon departs but will be my companion again and for this I wait and wait some more.


For My Sweet Sweet Lindsay
Forever and always and always and forever

My world

I always said " " A good friend would lie to you about your body,,,A best friend
would help you move A body!!!!!!!!"
no I have no personal experience at this so don't call 911 or cyber patrol LOL :)



This is what it is like on my part of the planet a few hours ago, the flare at the bottom right is because I took it indoors and if you look really close up, there is an ice drip frozen on the glass, looks like a blur but believe me it is ice,,,,,,,,I am frozen, we had a nice day but our weather changes fast and I try to be positive and think********** well at least it is no a tornado or earthquake etc. Which I am very grateful for,but I feel like I am in the ice age and its not the cartoon movie! Good thing is we have lots of fresh fresh fresh air, and if your into winter sports there lots to do :) I am not, I like it hot , hey that sounds good uhhmmmm back to the weather HE HE...Naughty naughty;)

The accident that I posted about the other day, well in a nutshell , the dealer is being an assh... , the owner of the hit car is being surprising nice , which is a bonus , we figured she would eat us and spit out our boots, but I guess everyone has some good in them , plus she is getting her car fixed by the driver on Monday , he is paying cash for that OUCH! but it is the right thing to do , but the dealership , that's going to be tricky ,

they never asked for insurance to changed over , there was nothing signed, and no question of it was even brought up so ,,,,,,,I don't know, they are giving an blown up amount for a deductible but the driver feels that they are scamming him and feel they can soak up the costs as a business. He feels the right thing is pay for the innocent person in all this , take care of that ,as he did hit her car and wait and see with the rest... I guess that is some size nutshell , I wouldn't want to be a squirrel if they were all that big...LOL *weak laughter* , sorry , lame joke but hey ,,,,,,,,,,,,,laugh in life , you don't know how long you will be able too!

take care, have a great day/ night , hope your Friday night was more interesting than mine ;) I wonder what movie is on ????? May you never desire more than you can achieve, be loved as much as you love and happiness be your life time friend :-)- sweetdreams all

Test drive anyone?


A friend and I took a new vehicle out for a run and were debating back and fourth if we liked it , if it was comfy ,all the drill of getting a new ride. We had it about 2 hours and really couldn't decide whether or not to make a purchase and decided to drop me off and return the van.
Now here is where the day turned , as we were pulling onto the side of my place a car was parked in front of my house and a truck further down , so parallel parking was the only thing to do and oncoming traffic and winter makes it a touchy situation ,as well as the feel of a new ride, you have to get use to it , anyway,,,,,,,,,,,crunchhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, right into the side of this little car . I was in shock or rather disbelief , no injury or anything (THANK YOU GOD) we were barely moving but the car and van merged like it was there honeymoon and there was no stopping it . Well , I have heard colorful language but not of this caliber for many years , now I am a very laid back person ,especially since I wasn't driving! So I did my best to calm my friend down , then we had to proceed. OH GOODY!
So heres were it gets alitle tricky , there is considerable damage on the "little car" and a major slice to the side of this new van, we know who is at fault physically but how does this get settled when it is not your own vehicle(Car dealers) and no transfer of insurance was issued and to initially leave the dealers nothing was signed to the effect of insurance .???????????The driver does not have insurance on any vehicle right now,was purchasing new one and was going to get all that after.
Now the dealer says take it up with your insurance (which is nil) and says that the deductible is $2500.00 just to fix the van. The person who owns the car want us to pay from insurance not aware yet it will be cash,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,now the driver was not negligent in not having insurance as he was without a vehicle for a few months and did not require it and it was never asked about at the dealer. Oh Dear , this is probably so boring to read , but it helps , so I 'll continue LOL.
The situation now is ,who is suppose to cover the damage? the dealers insurance, or the driver with their own cash? I always thought that dealerships etc. had insurance for this and also would ask for valid insurance etc but did not , whether that was a mistake on their part , we don't know .and as far as the deductible etc and all that , we called 4 insurance agency and gave them the details and they each said "we have never encountered this before" like come on" this person is a long time driver with no accidents for almost 30 years, it could happen to anyone and must have at some point .
The driver is willing to pay for mistakes but if insurance is there to protect you and help with some of the expensive cost of repairs , it should be used. If personal insurance is not transferred when someone has a test drive , how are you covered or are you?. It doesn't help that the car owner is a ,,,,,,,,,,,( I'm thinking ....Be kind be kind be kind) a non agreeable sort! Hopefully that doesn't become another late night blog .

not quite romeo and juliet

I guess I should post how I met the love of my life, seeing that I did get some lovely replies on my last post.
Well, we were both at a local spot some years ago and I had sworn of men totally as some of them can be , uhhhhhmmmmm , I'll be nice , some are real ungentlemenly like :) . I had enough and wasnt looking for a mate and from across the room I feel someone staring at me, and then he walks a B line to me and asks to dance, we do ,he walks me home and were together for a number of years and split.
Then he follows me a little bit around the country, sort of being where I am, when I am, and gets a job on the same shift at the same place without me knowing , to be near me,,,,all together now ahhhhhhhhhhhhh, we were really really young , it was not stalking at all , tee hee :))))))) kind of sounds like it but it wasnt because I wanted him also, but didnt want him to know that , why??? still never figured it out , but it all worked out and we have been together for years. Hopefully will be for many more...........
Thank you to all who gave up their stories , it is nice to read them, especially Dicks , he and his wife were together for many many years and tried 3 times before hooking up ,,,it was meant to be,,,ahhhhhhhhhhhh LOVE . when it is there it is total BLISS , you still have to work at it but it is worth it.
Girlfriends are great too!

Love



I have been extremely busy but had watched a movie last night "Pride and prejudice " I am a sucker for a good romantic movie ,sobs and all! I am a real romantic at heart and one little interest of mine is how people got together in the first place, how they met and was it love/lust at first sight . I just find these life stories so endearing and everyone has a story of how they met their love or a past love and when they knew this was "the one" .
Well I shall be busy for a little bit , day or so and if anyone would like to leave me their "How I met" someone they love/loved I would love to read it . You all have a great day/night and I must go shovelling, yiphee for me . have fun in life , it is to short to be a grump :)
