Played the guitar a good bit today, even pulled out the 12 string…It’d been awhile..
Today I get to stay home with a sick kid, not the ideal off day but at least he is not crazy doctor sick, so on to the post.
I hopped on face book a bit the other day and received a random message “hello” I check for random friends, none. The profile is out of the country..Internet model picture as well.. I figure this would be fun. I get a whole family story and how she re located to Africa.. At this point I still haven’t gotten the send me money and this person is going on a normal conversation for a couple of days..
It gets to the point I’m getting mad because they won’t get to the money part.. I go online to pull up the scammers in that area and it turns out they work the victim a month or two and phone calls before they even get to the money. Well I didn’t have time to play that game. So I sent another picture from the net of the same ones she used and said it’s been fun!
It still wows me that guys all over the world fall for these scams, if its the prince Alia Labumda and his family money or the Sarah that is stuck in a country wanting out.. It’s all the same. I even know an older guy that fell for this.. I pointed it out word for word.. Even surprised him of things or stories I knew because they all work pretty much the same. The guy sent thousands and still refused to believe he was being scammed. I’ve heard a some even being tracked down and “dealt with”
It’s just all sorts of crazy when you think about it
Well today is the Superbowl and will I be watching it? probably not. I mean I can barley remember last years game and who won. I’m all down for going to a bowl party or get together with friends, but outside of that I really just don’t care about the game or the bowl ads that are “MUST SEE” that i’ll be seeing all year long on TV afterwards.
I’m sure i’ll hear all about it tomorrow, and how that half time show was just CRAZY…
What I’ve been up to
Well, since my last post I have gotten a year older and Christmas has past. Many of times I said I’ve needed to update but time would never allow it. I have started my spring cleaning a little early, the first part of December, I have forgotten how much of a pack rat I was, and as many times as I have moved I would have figured I would (keep it lite) I have thrown so much stuff away and still have a lot to go through it is crazy. Its made me feel better in my personal living space, where I write, compose, meditate, talk to the things around me and other workings.
feels good man!!
I guess I could call it a physical cleaning, getting things in order
I find it funny that people are outraged at the discovery channels eaten alive.. The viewers are mad that Paul Rosalie was not fully eaten alive but he had to tap out after the anaconda had gotten as far his safety helmet due to the snake crushing grip on his arm.
Did people actually think the guy was going to get eaten? These same people and more would have been outraged if discovery would haven shown the man being fully eaten alive. You know it and I know it!!
It’s been quiet here, just have not had time to update. Thanksgiving Holiday was ok, its always just ok.. Most of the the family was off doing their own thing and i had Thanksgiving with my kiddo. When you see or hear from family often the holidays are just as any normal day to me.. I think it would be different with a big extended family.. Just my opinion on it anyways.
In march my son got his first dog and named her Molly. Myself and my friend had taken one of the racecars out to a Jamboree where people could see it, kids could get in it and such, they also had a pet adoption there, which is where we saw Molly. She was going to be put down a few days later if not adopted which we found out later so I’m very thankful we got her.
My son went right to this dog as the dog to him and stayed in his arms most of that day and every time my son would pass the dog off to me the dog would cry and want him back. We bring the dog home and quickly go through the having the create at night, the whining till they get use to it, to shutting all doors and potty training and such. You know, all the fun times 🙂
Molly learned quick that in a jump into my lap she could go anywhere I was going and would do this often, she became my lap dog. She reminded me of my favorite dog when I was younger so i enjoyed her a lot.
This past Sunday she was sadly run over while playing out in the yard. My kid is taking it well and knows she’s gone, but myself? I miss her already. I know when i get home from work soon she won’t be there waiting for me on the other side of that door waiting to jump in my lap and dog kisses like crazy.
I don’t know maybe I’m just too much of a animal lover, or she’d just reminding me a lot of my favorite dog growing up as a kid, I’m not sure. I Just know she will be missed
I had a pretty good weekend. worked some and spent some time and had some drinks with a good friend. Over the couple of days though I’ve had crazy dreams that are all over the place.
Last night into this morning was one of those dreams, that towards the end I could tell I had someone in my bed moving as a I move which woke me.. I moved again and heard the sound but just thought i was just that damn sleepy and went back to sleep.
It was then I heard a voice in my ear say ” James? ” I woke up then heard ” who are you” At this point I wasn’t going back to bed and it wasn’t because i was scared. I was the opposite, Every excited!!
This isn’t the first time this has happened and sometimes can happen very often, yes sometimes “they” have something to say. Now I no way or have ever claim or have claimed to be a medium but I have always had a knack for communicating with other things around us.
i use a simple EVP setup where I can hear response in real time.. i can get very little chatter and other times get so much response back that i have a hard time making out who is saying what. I save the playback then to go through things for later.
I’ve seen some cool things over the years, photos, good evps and for the first time this year saw some objects being moved on command.
I’ll plan on some evp session tonight, but if I can actually get to it tonight i’m not sure, Mondays are crazy and by the end of the day i’m exhausted
I’m reading earlier today about Russell Brand being at a protest in the UK with the tag line ” new Anarchist leader?” with the repeated used of the word anarchy.
Last time I checked, a protest rally does not equal anarchy or an anarchist movement, unless I’m missing something people today are missing the point of anarchy completely. Today’s Anarchy is more of a fashion trend topped off with a guy fawkes mask.
I grew up with an anarchist/hacktivist out look on a lot of things and for the most part i can say I “quietly” still do. even back then the word anarchy was always taken by people the wrong way. Most of it was people being under educated and the fear of the word. Much like the reaction some people get with the words wiccan or pagan.
If you sat down with the young protesters and explained anarchy views would they care, I don’t think so. They will move on when the fad does. Then again it’s all part of growing up and developing ones own personality.
