Memorial Day – Remembering The Fallen

It’s the end of the Memorial Day weekend, and many of you are sitting around, picking on what’s left from the BBQ. I just wanted to make a quick note about what this day is all about. Memorial Day is here to remember the fallen troops who have served in all branches of the Armed Forces. From the first World War right up to Iraq, we salute the fallen. To the politicians who start these wars, I say phooey.

Cheers.

Some Weird Shit Going On

Tonight was a weird one. I watched the Lacy Peterson movie on TV while channel hopping to America Idol. I normally do not watch these shows, but with the other half blasting it from the living room, and the kids watching, I figured I’d give it my attention.

The guy with the long hair had my vote, being that i love Lynard Skynard and saw them at JFK live. This guy had heart and soul. The blonde chick was a bore to me, she sang well but no body movement, sort of like a stepford wife. Then I had to go and get some milk and coffee from my favorite Wawa, on Oak Ave. Next door, at Thomas’s Cafe, was Karaoke. I just had to go in, like a big arm grabbed me by the shirt and drug me along..

As i walked into the Parking Lot I noticed a beautiful GMC 37′ to the bottom of the bucket truck with chrome wheels. Must of cost 70 grand. (I hope they have a lot of jobs with it). I went in the bar, and ordered myself a beer and a shot of black bucca. Mike Blessington was the Karaoke MC. Mike is a great guy, not a snob like some other Delco Karaoke people.

I told him one and done. My song was “The Letter” from the Box Tops. I have had a sore throat now for weeks, and yet I did ok. Karaoke is fun when your not judged. At Thomas’s there is no clique crap. Only people who enjoy to sing. Yay that!

I then left and went on home. I have several closed circuit cameras around, both out front and in the back. The one out front (It’s infred) caught a weird orb floating or flying in front of it. My DVR recorded it, and i showed it to my wife. She is freaked out about it, telling me that someone must have died nearby. I ‘ve read about these “ORBS”, and I’ll admit that they are mysterious, but I do not hold the same belief that she does.

I’ll try to copy the pictures of this to an .AVI file, and post it sometime.

P.S.

To Mr. Galloway: Way To Go!

Shaima Rezayee – Murdered For Being A Woman

What is wrong with these people anyway?

The former presenter for a popular MTV-style music video program was shot and killed in her home in Kabul last week. Shaima Rezayee, 24, hosted the daily music program “Hop” on the private television channel Tolo TV until March.

It seems that killing women in Afganistan and other Muslim countries is both overlooked and accepted.

I recommend them as opposed to Accu-Weather or Weather.com.
NOAA has no pop-up ads, or annoying flash crap. Most of all they just post data relavent to your area weather.

Remember Captain Noah? I always wondered when I would be invited on his “Magical Ark.” Yes, good old Capt.Noah and Mrs.Noah I believe were the founders of NOAA. Think about it. “NOAA” derived from “NOAH”. I knew Philly’s own Captain was an intellegent one, but until today never could connect the two! When he would ask us to “Send Your Pictures to dear old Captain Noah, Send today… Send right away..” It was his way of asking us to be weather spotters, I’m sure of it! So, move over Rick, It will take more than an out of state Senator to take away our NOAA!

Have a nice day.

Very Interesting

Now just why would the Treasury Department send me these e mails? I’ve had three of them today in my mailbox all pointing to German websites. Am I on some mailing list or something? If you do a Sammy Spade (whois) on the ip address it shows up as the Executive Office of Asset Forfeiture, or EOAF.

Is this a cruel joke? A Virus? Worm? Or something else? Anyone care to explain? My anti virus defs are up to date.

Beware Of Smooth Talkers

I just was informed by my wife that we owe Verizon $237.06 for our business line. I asked her why it was so high, being that it averages $40.00 a month. I found the answer under Non Basic Service Charges, on page 5. It seems that Integretel, a third party billing company, added a charge for $38.10 Federal Tax included for MySiteOnlineIs.COM. I called Integretel, and the woman put me on hold. Then a recording came on. I heard my wife giving out information and basically authorizing the billing.

I asked her why would you do this? Our business already has a web page And although I haven’t really updated it, it’s FREE. She went on to tell me that the man said it was a free trial and he would send her a package in the mail about their product. In my opinion she was duped into giving out information and never authorized anything.

Here is the URL to what they provided for 34.95 a month. You have got to be kidding me! What kind of crappy cookie cutter no information site is that? For thirty-four bucks a month? Anyway, I gave my wife their telephone number and asked my wife to call and cancel this, which she did. I then called MySiteOnlineIs myself and kind of let loose on the lady who answered. I was told that we were billed since January, that my wife did authorize it, and that she had just called to cancel. I told the woman that I thought her company had rotten Salespersons, that I thought my wife was conned, and that I wanted a copy of the WHOLE conversation between my wife and the Salesperson for my attorney to hear. She told me that they did not have the whole conversation, only the part about my wife giving authorization.

So, the Salesperson and the sales pitch weren’t recorded? What a perfect way of making money! Call up a business, throw them a salespitch, record someone (Anyone) who will give authorization whether they have it or not, then tack it on the businesses phone bill. Before the end of our conversation the woman offered me an apology and a promise of two months credit sent to Verizon. On a side note I also did a google search on MySiteOnlineIs and came across this interesting read:
What I learned from all of this is that one must pay attention to ANY solitation, and better yet, just hang up on them. I know my wife will think the same thing next time.
