    How about a new Club?

    I'm thinking about starting a new club since our local cable & internet prices are getting way out of hand. I've noticed in the last 6 months, there has been numerous topics on what everyone is doing for their TV channels & internet. This club will keep all of those topics in one place instead of all over the Message Place. The Cable Cutters Club will help everyone decide on what steps to take to bring those crazy prices down or possibly use streaming for their main TV channels. What's the best ???? .... Hulu? Sling? Youtube? Fubu? Philo? At&t TV? Playstation Vue? If you are interested in this new club, please reply or just give me a thumbs up or like. If you are a PRO at this topic and would like to help out .. let me know by message: http://www.godubois.com/index.php?/messenger/compose/&to=1

    As told by her mother Brandi... So many of you have been wondering how Faith is doing. Thank you all for your thoughts prayers and support through this journey. Faith had a rough start since being brought into this world and been through more than most adults. She was born full term via c section due to being breech. Her head was under my ribs and she wouldn’t turn. When she came out she did pretty well Tuesday then on Wednesday she started having episodes of apnea. Her brain wasn’t sending signals to her lungs to breathe. She was put on a cpap then by Thursday she was placed on a ventilator. Friday we were told that she has trisomy 18, Edwards Syndrome which is a rare chromosomal defect. There is no cure, no fix, it just is. These babies have short life spans. They are lucky if they live past the first 6-9days of life. By Saturday the ventilator was doing all the breathing for her and Deryk and I had to make a heart breaking decision. That’s not a life living on a vent for the rest of her days. But our little girl wasn’t done fighting yet, she was not done living! The vent was discontinued, she opened her eyes and breathed! She was placed on monitors to track her oxygen, heart rate and respiration’s. We waited another week to see how she would do. No more episodes of apnea! We went through a week of education and learning how to care for once she came home. Our hope was restored! She would come home! Our Faith is now 2 weeks old and defying the odds! Our Faith is a true testimony that there is power in prayer! ❤️ I also have to say that the staff at Penn Highlands DuBois NICU and maternity are amazing people! We couldn’t have gotten this far without them! They went above and beyond their call of duty and made whatever accommodations for Faith, us and our family. They have been a God send for us and we are forever grateful to them. 💝

    Wake up call

    The one thing I take away from this whole corona virus hype is how dependant we have become on other nations for our basic needs and this is what should scare hell out of everybody. We are the greatest nation on earth and we have China threatening to shut off our medical supply chain, which by the way they can easily do. We have allowed our politicians to sell us down the river for 30 years by being bought out by lobbyists and corporations. Wake up people. Forget the toilet paper panic. Start panicking for the very future of this country. Our eyes need to be wide open and reverse the sellout of this nation

    Everyone be careful!

    Just wanna tell you to be careful because people are going crazy from being in lock down! Actually I was just talking about this with the toaster and the microwave while having coffee and all of us agreed that things are getting really bad. I didn't mention anything to the washing machine as she puts a different spin on everything. Certainly not to the fridge - he’s acting all cold and distant. The iron straightened me out and she said everything will be fine, no situation is too pressing. The Hoover was very unsympathetic... told me to just suck it up. But the fan was more optimistic and hoped it would all blow over very soon! The toilet looked a bit flushed when I asked its opinion and didn’t say anything. The doorknob told me to get a grip!! The front door said I was unhinged. And the curtains told me to (yes, you guessed it) pull myself together!! Trying, really trying.😂

    Riots in Minneapolis

    I just want to know how all these people expect respect when they are clearly disrespecting their community. I understand a man died in police custody. I also get that justice has to be served where it’s deserved. But seriously. Acting like a bunch of idiots will not get u heard. Your making yourselves look just like a lot of people are saying. So if u want respect and to be heard stop the stupid childish crap and act like true citizens and let ur voice be heard in a positive way.

    Back to the subject. I deal with the owners of Billy’s and I can tell you this is not a decision they made in hast. Other restaurants in Clearfield got together and discuss it and decided to open while following CDC guild lines. They were already doing take outs which had people in the building. They set up the dining area for proper distancing. They are using disposable wares. Basically the only difference is people can sit 6 feet apart to eat instead of standing six feet apart to pick up food. As a business owner they made a decision to save their restaurant and employees. If you don’t want to support them then don’t it is your choice. I personally think I would feel safer there than Walmart or Hobbie Lobby. Yes they went against Wolfe’s orders but so did Dr Lavine when she removed her mother from a nursing home during the outbreak. I find it very difficult to follow orders from someone the seems to have a personal agenda.

    On the lighter side....

    Good grief!!! Only in Falls Creek , Pa.🙄. So, I pulled into the gas station just a few minutes ago and when I was walking in to pay, I noticed one of our finest officers parked on the side of the building. He was watching this woman who was smoking while pumping gas. I saw her too ...I was thinking this lady is CRAZY!! But anyway, I went inside and all of a sudden I heard a commotion ...I heard somebody screaming. I looked out the door and the woman's arm was on fire!!! She was swinging her arm & running around like crazy!! I saw the officer who had just put the lady on the ground and was putting the fire out with his coffee!! Then, he cuffed her and threw her in the back of his patrol car....Yes, that’s right! The lady who had just caught on fire was getting locked up!!... I was thinking "What kind of person smokes WHILE PUMPING GAS and thinks nothing's gonna happen?!" Just dumb! So being the inquisitive person that I am....I saw the officer standing by my car so I asked him, "What did she do?" He looked me dead in the face and said, “WAVING A FIREARM!” Now, which of my friends actually read this to the end? I'd love to know? Copy, paste, and see who you can get with this joke! Change it to your city though. - Have a Good Day FB 🥰

    Yesterday was Faith Marie’s 8th month birthday. She is 13# & 24 1/2” long. She loves most baby foods, loves to “talk”, & knows who is talking to her. She has been learning so much stuff this past month. Her appt in Pitts went well, so well in fact, the Drs said that Faith would live past her 1st birthday. With all the prayers this little girl has in our area, state, and country, God hears them, and He has healed most of the problems she was born with! Thank you Jesus!!

    Peanut gained another 2oz this week. She is up to 4# 7oz now. She also pulled her feeding tube out this morning, but she has been taking a bottle that is equal to what she was given through the feeding tube. As long as she continues to take a bottle, she won’t need the feeding tube. 🙏🏻

    This has all gone beyond bullshit. Not every cop is bad or racist. I am sure there are some. You will find them everywhere but we are back to people being offended over stupid poop. People are trying to erase history instead of learning from it. I don't even have words anymore for all of the idiocy I see every day.

    Ohio Reopens

    I don’t see the mockery in it. I see a serious question.. why are some things allowed open and others are not. U can go to Walmart and be elbow to elbow but u cant go to a restaurant or certain businesses. I don’t understand a lot of what is going on. I still have yet to meet or hear of someone knowing someone with covid. I think people need to be cautious but not overly cautious. I know what I say is wrong to you and is what u think of others also but just think about the logic of all this.. there is none besides government control and to scare the people. It’s where they want us...

    Thank you, to everyone who has followed along with Faith Marie’s journey to reach a year old!! The majority of us learned what Trisomy 18 is. We also learned that “Trisomy 18 is a Diagnosis, Not a Prognosis.” We have no idea what the future holds, we will go day by day. Everything is in God’s Hands, His plans & His time. 🙏🏻💜🙏🏻

    I was playing with Faith while her mommy did an errand. We were playing with a wiener dog, they go “bark bark”, because that’s what real wiener dogs sound like. The dog would bark, then kiss her cheek, this is the reaction I got, 😂 😍

    Context matters... Antebellum means occurring before war. No specific war, just before a war, which context would matter. Nowhere have I ever seen Lady Antebellum say their name is specific to the US Civil War. Technically, 1860 is antebellum to the Vietnam War, to the Korean War, to WWII, WWI, etc. Anyone getting bent out of shape over Lady Antebellum's name needs to go get bent.

    T`was The Night Before Quarantine

    T’was The Night Before Quarantine T’was the night before quarantine and all through the town, not a restaurant was open, not a school-bus was found. Hand sanitizers were placed by all doorposts with care, in hopes that Corona would never come there. The children were swinging from the crystal chandeliers, and the stir-crazy babies were almost in tears. With everyone in health masks and live updates on their screens, we hunkered down and waited for COVID-19. For into our lives with a sneeze and a cough came a global pandemic and a crash of the stocks. Away to the grocery we all flew like a flash, and bought all the toilet paper for our personal stash. As the moon slowly rose on our fates and our fears, what to my wandering mind should appear? In the absence of busyness a new life taking form: in the stillness of solitude, in the silence of the storm. In the magic of together and home-bound company, rediscovering connection in our family. So, with the pup in her kennel and the children in their beds, new visions of adventures now danced in my head! The checklists could wait and the bank accounts would be fine, for we had been given the most sacred gift of time. So, I gathered the markers and crayons and paints, I collected the nerf guns and assembled board games. With a wink and a smile, I moved on to schoolwork: math facts and science and vocabulary words. I laughed as I thought it, in spite of myself, “what if quarantine can heal our emotional health?” If the birds are still singing and if the flowers still bloom, surely the sunshine can overcome our gloom. If we set aside fear and choose kindness instead, maybe we’ll all begin to realize we have nothing to dread. I tucked back into bed and smiled up at the moon, for a peace had replaced the impending doom. So, take heart and take hope through this curious plight, and “happy quarantine to all” until we’re allowed to reunite.” —Author unknown

    For those of you wearing gloves and masks now. Are you wearing them properly? Are you disposing of your gloves each time you touch something new. There is a reason that boxes of gloves are (were?) on the walls in patient rooms at hospitals: you put on a new pair each time you touch a new patient. If you're wearing gloves and not changing them frequently, you are potentially still spreading this thing. I saw some moron wearing gloves and eating candy the other day. Completely useless to wear gloves if you're not wearing them properly. Plus, you may be taking them from someone else that actually needs them.

    Yes she has, isn’t it wonderful!! She is starting to eat baby food now, she loves applesauce!! The rice flakes helped put weight on her also. Brandi said every time a hole closed in her heart, she would go through a growth spurt. The last time it happened was when she grew 2” in 1 month, but they didn’t know the hole closed!! Faith Marie has one more hole, it usually requires surgery to close it. She is hungry a lot, wants held more, sleepy, etc. These are all the same things she did a couple months back when she had that big growth spurt. We are all praying that the last hole closed up!! We won’t know till the end of this month. 🙏🏻❤️🙏🏻

    On a Corona shopping note

    My opinion: I think some people are still under the impression that the lockdown was meant to eradicate the virus. It wasn't. It was meant to slow it down to reasonable infection rates that our health care system could handle. Businesses will and must reopen. Staying home forever will not eradicate the virus, not in a mobile society. The most vulnerable populations must still exercise great caution, and the rest of the population, reasonable caution. Yes, more people will contract the virus. Things are not going to be back to pre-virus normal, but just don't be stupid. And be kind. Not everybody is in the same situation. I need to do what is reasonable for me and you need to do what is reasonable for you.

    Support Local Businesses

    I'm a member of our local chamber of commerce, and they just sent out an email. A lot of this is common sense, but very timely, so I thought I would pass it along, help support your local small businesses during this insanity: Purchase essentials from locally owned stores: Local pharmacies, butchers, wine shops, prepared foods, etc... Patronize local restaurants: Order takeout, curbside pickup, and delivery as often as you would go out to eat (or more) Participate in innovative digital offerings: Support small businesses offering online classes and entertainment Shop remotely with local merchants: Need to buy a gift? Choose to shop online at a local store, or purchase from a store offering delivery Buy gift cards to spend later: Go above and beyond to benefit your favorite businesses Choose local vendors: It's not just hospitality and retailers who are losing out on business- select local vendors for your business needs Influence others to do the same: The more people who support local business, the stronger our economy will be I work for a huge company. The big boys will weather this, but mid size to small businesses are going to take a beating over the next few months. I'm the world's worst for ordering from Amazon, but I'm going to make a conscious effort to support my neighbors through this time

    State of the Union

    The world got to see the two faces of America. The ultimate salesman out front cheering on America and all its possibilities provided to it's citizens. Making people proud to be Americans and proud to be living in a free country full of endless possibilities. Then the world got to see the other America. A sour face pretending not to be interested, wincing in fake pain, portraying doom and gloom trying to make America think it can't achieve anything on it's own. Pretty sad

    You have no proof of that. People make their own choices regardless as how they were raised. These two "kids" are well beyond the age of reason. No matter what their parents taught them, they made their own choices to do what they did.
