Time Event
2:40a
Driving home around 1:30AM today, I heard an interesting conversation on a news radio channel.

The host had had a conversation with some police officer friends. They said that if the sniper is done shooting, they will never find out who he is. They need more evidence. In a morbid sense, they NEED him to keep shooting. If this is true, what if he IS done? Imagine being the family or friends of the people the sniper has killed. Imagine never having justice for those heinous, senseless deaths. Never knowing who the killer is/was, never knowing if he's going to just someday start shooting again, etc. He could be your neighbor. The thought of this person getting away with all this is disgusting to me.

So...I'll ask you what the talkshow host was asking. It's not an easy choice.

If you HAD to choose one or the other:

I hate to say it, but we need him to keep shooting, so that hopefully he'll slip up & we can catch him & get justice for these senseless deaths.
5(25.0%)
I just want him to stop shooting; I don't care that justice isn't done....to have no more deaths is enough justice for me.
15(75.0%)

Why did you choose what you chose?

OK.

I have a microphone.

How do I make a mpeg, or whatever, & then post it on here, for those who want to hear me sing a little snip-it???

Any help is appreciated. And PLEASE....go through it as "Lessons for dummies," please. I am truly pc clueless (that is, until macdhomhnuill gets his hands on me...figuratively speaking, of course! *giggle*)

I just removed a bunch of people from my friends list. Ya, ya, big deal. They probably won't even notice. I removed 14 altogether. 7 either never added me back or removed me & I didn't realize it (a couple confuse me....meaning, I don't know why I was removed). 1 is someone's old journal (she has a new one). 6, I removed because they never responded to any of my posts. I don't mind lurking if you eventually & occasionally say SOMETHING. My posts tend to be diverse enough that, surely, you'd have SOMETHING to say at some point. If not, there's really no reason to have me on YOUR friends list, or read my journal at all. I have lots of people on my list, & truly make an effort to respond in all of them, from time to time, as time allows. Commenting on EVERY post is obviously not possible. Commenting OCCASIONALLY so that I know you are alive & still interested, IS a requirement.

That is all.

Recipe???
I love macaroni salad, but I hate onions, peppers, & relish, & everytime I get macaroni salad, I have to pick all that nasty stuff out. And since onions kinda blend in, color-wise, that's a pain.

Can anyone offer a recipe for macaroni salad that doesn't have onions, peppers, & relish, or one that it's pretty simple just to leave that icky stuff out?

While I am at it, anyone have a good ambrosia recipe??? I will take any suggestions for both or either, posted her or emailed.

THANKS!!!!!!

OK, this "Fear Factor" is disgusting.

First of all, one of the guys called this girl "heavy." Ummm...even with the camera adding 10 pounds, she was TINY! Totally skinny! I couldn't believe he said that! Sheesh! I must be a freakin' beached whale next to him.

Then, it galls me that they pick stunts that BLATANTLY lean towards men. It's a fact that men tend to have better upper body strength. Yes, there are some women who are totally buff, but even a buff woman can't usually compare to a buff man. They chose this stunt that leaned heavily in favor of men....depending almost solely on upper body strength. That reeks of unfairness to me. The people had to ride along in a speedboat, grab hold of a rope ladder coming out of a helicopter, & starting at the bottom rung, pull themselves up & inside the copter. ONE woman made it, & all 3 men just shot up the ladder like it was nothing.

The "gross" stunt....eating two shot glasses of worms, & then transfering worms from a bin onto a scale....with your mouth. The one girl who made it tried the stunt, but gave up. She said the taste of the worms wasn't SO bad, but them wiggling inside her mouth & the texture was disgusting. One guy reported the smell as being horrendous. The things they eat weekly in this segment....I usually can't even watch.

All for $50,000. Would you do it? I wouldn't. Heck, I won't even eat salad or onions or cucumber or celery...you think I'd eat worms or buffalo testicles? NOT!
