Hey Y'all - Welcome to my world

Sometimes 140 characters just won't cut it so I started writing stuff down....here. Don't get me wrong, I love Twitter but there are times when the Random Thoughts of a Southern Liberal Mind just can't be contained within a Tweet.

SAVING $$$...

...has to be one of my favorite past-times and when you combine that with my other favorite past-time (shopping), man-oh-man just get outta my way! Every good southern girl loves to shop y'all and I'm a good southern girl but these days I don't have time to go to the stores or walk around the malls all day. For some odd reason, the hubby and the kids need to eat every day. What is up with that? But...I digress. The point of this post was to let y'all know about one of my most favorite websites - Ebates - the online rebate people. I don't normally do this type of promotion (you know...I'd rather talk about politics or my family) but this isn't really about Ebates...it's about saving money. Believe me, I was skeptical when I first heard about them but I've been accessing all my favorite online shops through Ebates now for about 5 years AND I really have received a check from them every three months like clockwork. It's so great, my husband has started doing it. They have links to stores like Old Navy, Gap, Banana Republic, Dell, Nordstrom, Macy's, ShoeMall, Apple, Travelocity, Orbitz, etc.... If you purchase from one of the online stores when you've accessed them through Ebates, they'll pay you a percentage of your purchase and deposit it right back into your Ebates account - 1% up to 25% depending on the store - then send you a "Big Fat Check". Now that's a deal!

Sign-up & get paid - it's 100% completely free - and they don't ask for anything but your name and address. The best part is, the only time you hear from them is when they are mailing your check (or you get one in the mail). So...give it a shot! Click on this link to check out Ebates and sign up today! You got nothing to lose!

Peace out ~~

I proudly support President Barack Obama!

Dear Mr. President: I'm sorry and embarrassed that small minds like Donald Trump and the Birther movement were trying to distract you from your task of eliminating Osama bin Laden - the real threat to America. Thank you for being patient, intelligent, contemplative, tough and resolute.

Good job Mr. President!

Proud to be an American and a supporter of President Barack Obama!

Carnival Barkers - A Feast for Your Weary Eyes!

"I know that there is going to be a segment of people for which no matter what we put out, this issue will not be put to rest, but I am speaking for the vast majority of the American people as well as for the press. We do not have time for this kind of silliness. We have better stuff to do. I have got better stuff to do. We have got big problems to solve."

"We are not going to be able to do it if we are distracted, we are not going to be able to do it if we spend time vilifying each other ... if we just make stuff up and pretend that facts are not facts, we are not going to be able to solve our problems if we get distracted by side shows and carnival barkers." - President Barack Obama, April 27, 2011

Now.... Donald Trump, Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann and all you conspiracy theorist TeaParty birthers, would you PLEASE just STFU once and for all??? - Amy Bolt, April 27, 2011

There's just a special feeling when you bring your artwork to a potential buyer's house and they fall in love! Wow! I sold three paintings in one day plus was commissioned for three more!

It doesn't get much better than that!

Peace out~~~

Natural Disasters

I haven't had a lot to say lately. Life has a way of getting in the way of "blogging". But, I need to extend my thoughts and prayers to the citizens of Japan. The pain and suffering they are enduring is incredible.....

Now...with that being said, I also need to turn my finger of shame squarely on any and all Americans who have questioned the need for us to send assistance to the Japanese people. To question whether or not to lend a hand to people/humans simply because you did not have another fulfill your "needs", is the question of a selfish, self involved people. People who believe in a power higher than themselves should never withhold help from another or ask why they should help another.....they should just help others in need. Shame on you if you've turned Japan's darkest days into a story about you.

SHAME SHAME SHAME...she says as she wags her finger in disgust.
