Have you noticed???

I changed the way my email reads on my site and I still get some of the weirdest emails around. I keep getting emails wanting me to get medication that will increase the size of certain male parts. There's one BIG problem with that. I don't have male parts. And all the emails are address to info. My name isn't info. I get so tired of getting these things and I'm sure I'm not the only one. I'm pretty sure you're reading this and saying to yourself, I know exactly how she feels. The US made such a big deal about this anti-spam law and how it would reduce the amount of emails we get. HA!!! I get more not than I ever did before. I even get those that tell some sob story about how this person is being persecuted and they have to get millions out of their country and need my help to do this. Of course they're going to pay me for my trouble. Like I really believe that. I'm really going to give them all this personal information about myself like my banking account number. Do these people think I'm completely off my rocker?! I don't trust anyone with that information. If it isn't these emails, I get the ones that tell about how some person wants to meet me and go out on a date. I happen to be happily married.

I delete more emails than I actually read. And the attachments! I get some lulus. At least I have decent security on my computer so I don't get that many viruses to come through. I get more change start page than anything else. At least so far. It sure is a hassle getting things back to the way it should be.

I know you didn't come here to read about my email troubles, but I just had to fuss about that, and I appologize if this has offended anyone. I just had to get this off my chest, so to speak. When I go to a site looking for emails to send something to, I at least try to find a name to use instead of just putting something down. I get tired of having email addressed to info. If you are going to send me an email that advertises a product, at least make sure my name is on the email! Is that too much to ask? I hope not.

I also want you to watch for the ones that say application approved. I don't fill applications over the net. It's too easy for someone to be spying on me and get that information. Word of warning, if you don't know who the email is from, just go ahead and delete it. You are a lot better off in the long run. Don't even worry about doing an unsubscribe because all that does is let them know that someone checks the email and it incourages them to send more.

Okay, I'll get off my soap box and wish you a good night. I pray the Lord blesses you and watches over you.

Just Rambling

I'm watching my ebay items that go off sale today and figured that I'd come here for a little while.

I realize I just put August's picture up and just mailed the one for September, but I always try to look ahead to what I want to send the children. I'm a terrible artist. If I try to draw a straight line, I can guarantee it will come out crooked. My 8 year old son can draw better than I can. I wish I were joking but I'm not. He's really good and seems to enjoy it. I'm glad though. I want to encourage him in stuff like this. I'll probably be asking him for pictures to send to the kids. I bet he'll get a kick out of that. He really likes the fact that I do this. He's all the time trying to come up with ways to help children that need it. One day he decided to have a yard sale so he could buy some toys to take to the hospital here in town. He never did though because I couldn't get him to go through his stuff to see what he wanted to get rid of. Oh well, he's only 8. I've got to teach him to follow through on his actions, and I will. He's really a good boy. Actually both of my boys are good boys. One is just a little active, make that a lot active. But that's okay, I wouldn't have him any other way.

It's amazing how different two boys can be. Devin, my oldest is usually quiet. Marcus, he's just the opposite. I know I fuss about them sometimes, most especially when I don't get any time away from them, but I wouldn't know what to do without them in my life.

Anyway, if you want to donate some drawings for this, please feel free to do so. I can't pay you for it, but I'll be glad to put your name on my site by the picture. Just email me and you can either do it as an attachment or mail them to me. I've got a scanner and can scan them onto my computer.

Thanks for coming here and reading my ramblings. I really like that.

God bless you always.
