  1. It's a shame on our society that we can't help the child molesters when they are children. It is self-perpetuating.

    Trust me, nothing that you felt even vaguely touched the agony of Shingles. I was in the hospital for almost 5 days, 3 of them in isolation, then home in bed for 6 weeks. I got sick around the 4th of July and wasn't really out and about till after the end of August. My husband would come home from work and wonder if he would find me dead in bed. I had the worst case Shingles from the inside of my right wrist, completely up my arm and over my shoulder and then down the right side of my back. I also had a terrible time with the Chickenpox when I was a child. After that I begged for someone to give me the vaccine, which wasn't readily available at that time, and ended up going to Fort Meade to get it. The nurse there decided to give me a Flu vaccine at the same time, which was not supposed to be done. I was heartily sick for one night and then felt tremendous. I had nerve pain for about 2 years and never went anywhere without a tube or two of Cortisone 10 with Aloe. That's the only relief I was ever able to find, and it even worked better than some kind of cream that the doctor gave me to slather on. It was worthless and made me feel like my skin was actually sizzling. Never underestimate Shingles. They may simply make you mildly sick, thoroughly miserable, or they can cause complications that can kill you. Get the vaccine and be sure. https://www.massgeneral.org/News/newsarticle.aspx?id=3541 My immune system was a complete loss at that time, which is why I work so hard on it now. I don't want anything to overtake me again.
  3. When someone I know lost his because of his drinking, he had to pay to get them back, and it wasn't cheap! If he didn't claim them within the time period, then he had to either keep on paying for storage or lose them. If maintenance had been involved, then I imagine the bill would have been much higher.

    Life-Size Noah's Ark In Kentucky

    Hopefully our family will be able to do a 4 day visit this summer because Kentucky is quite a distance! I am chiefly interested because of the religious aspect, not just in Hebrew history, but as world history.

    DuBois Mall is in a Receivership Sale

    No small community organization will be able to provide liability insurance. If you're a 501-c-3, then the group leaders are protected somewhat, but otherwise, every volunteer is a target. But then, that's why the Mall carries liability insurance. You are a liability when you walk in the door to shop, or even the Mall walkers.

    Is there a restaurant in the Ark, or near it?

    They wanted the BUDS to give them $300, proof of liability insurance, and something else I can't remember, in order to do our annual gift wrapping fundraiser at the Mall this past Christmas. Considering that we brought business to the Mall, and we do not exist to support the Mall, it was an automatic NO. When I asked after Christmas how they did, the woman said it was really great and they had a lot of groups there. I only know of one who was actually inside of a store, and no others. Friends who walk there looked every day and there was nothing. Not only did they deprive the area of funds for beautification, but they probably lost business too. Apparently, they are doing business in an altered universe. I have been working for one group or another at Christmas at the Mall to raise funds for over 33 years. People looked us up and brought cartload after cartload of gifts to be wrapped while they went shopping for more. It was nice to finally stay home and bake and wrap my way through our own Christmas but I really missed the people we saw, and the BUDS will not be able to do as much this year unless we do well at the Plant Bazaar. Being a negligent and possibly greedy Mall operator hurts everyone in a community, even the small local businesses because it pushes more people to the internet to buy. I'd rather pick it up locally, but there are things you just cannot find in our area.

    Hitching Post

    I think there was a Bloom Electric truck parked there yesterday.
  9. I Googled it on the internet because nothing above loaded.
  10. And to think, it all starts with one teeny step outside of the lines....so don't take the first step, no worries.
  11. I had to do it, I looked up Meth Mouth. I'll never get that image out of my mind. https://www.mouthhealthy.org/en/az-topics/m/meth-mouth
  12. I would like to know how many of the people who got sick may have had weakened immune systems?
  13. Then they need to be fined heavily and not sell their milk to the public. If they can't get it together, then they need to go out of business.
  14. Farms selling milk directly to their groups need to do VERY frequent testing of their cows. It would be interesting to know more about that cow and how her infection happened.
