Visit My Blog Buddy: My Thoughts, Ideas, and Ramblings

Here's to one of my fellow PPP posties who just got her new domain! She just found out that the old version of her blog actually had a decent ranking so she decided to switch to her own I'm just kidding. She planned to do that long before the good news. Her new domain is at My Thoughts, Ideas, and Ramblings and is ready for you to come visit and say hi.

If you are a new blogger you may ask: Why Linky Love Is Important? Not only does it help you out in the world of the web, but when it actually does go according to plan, it makes you feel all warm and fuzzy when your hard work finally pays off. Congrats on your new blog and you new rank.

Orlando Vacation Rentals

When you go to Florida, why would you stay in a cramped hotel room? Take a look at these Orlando vacation rentals and tell me that you wouldn’t rather take a deal like this. This place has a new hot tub spa heated up to 104F; New DELL Computer and DSL High Speed Internet; Game room with a New 7FT Pool/Billiard Table, a Foosball table, and more. This place has four bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in this villa. has more to choose from and a decent layout on the site with plenty of detail to give you the information you need to find the perfect vacation rental. Just looking at the places they have available makes me want to pack right now and head down to Orlando.

So my friend is an idiot...

I have a friend that likes to partake in the joy of chewing tobacco. Doesn't bother me really as long as he takes care of teh mess when he is anywhere near my property. Last night we are driving around and he is having a nice chew and using a cup as a spitoon in my car. No big deal. Just throw it out when we get to where we are going. For some reason this moron decides he is going to set it on the passenger seat floor when he gets out (I was already out and not paying attention) and leave it there while we go in to eat. When we come back out he casually gets in and kicks it over. So...I have a nice brown stain on my floor and my car smells like a friggin' evergreen forest. Cleaned the hell out of it today, but the stain is still there. I think he is going to pay to get my entire car detailed for this stunt.

Beyond Blossoms is a unique company offering a simple mission: to provide the freshest flowers, with the best designs, at the lowest prices.

Beyond Blossoms’ arrangements feature European styles, meaning they showcase a complementary mix of flowers and greens in matching colors. This style creates a more sophisticated look than a typical “garden” style bouquet filled with a wild mix of mismatched flowers. The site itself is just as beautiful as the flowers so take a look.

Ted Murphy is a Woman

Yes you heard it here first. Ted Murphy of PayPerPost is a woman. He may look like a man, but not so long ago he was a Swedish bikini model. Now living the life of a .com head man it is a wonder why he changed teams. I guess women still aren't respected in this business so he/she decided to just go with the flow. Good Luck Ted!

Scientist develops caffeinated doughnuts

All i need is more caffine. Send these things my way. If I can get even more caffine out of my food I am all for it. I want my veins pumping for dear life. 2 cups of coffee in one donut. Oh yeah!

DURHAM. N.C. - That cup of coffee just not getting it done anymore? How about a Buzz Donut or a Buzzed Bagel? That's what Doctor Robert Bohannon, a Durham, North Carolina, molecular scientist, has come up with. Bohannon says he's developed a way to add caffeine to baked goods, without the bitter taste of caffeine. Each piece of pastry is the equivalent of about two cups of coffee.

While the product is not on the market yet, Bohannon has approached some heavyweight companies, including Krispy Kreme, Dunkin' Donuts and Starbucks about carrying it.


Sometimes you get lucky...

A young lady postie named Michelle was awarded a new HP Photosmart M527 digital camera through a previous PPP Opportunity. Now that she has the camera she has some pictures. Only problem is they are all jumbled up and all over the place. I have one piece, but I don't know where the rest are. Do YOU?

Before I get to the piece of the puzzle you found me for I am going to give you a link to a Digital Photography Review from HP. Since they are helping to sponsor this little contest they get some well deserved link love.

And now....What you have been waiting for...the piece of the puzzle...

Oh yeah...did you know that it is impossible to lick your elbow, a crocodile can't stick its tongue out, and a shrimp's heart is in its head? I bet you did, but I posted it anyways.

Puzzle Piece #45:

Good Luck!

Funeral Flowers

Sometimes you can’t always get to a funeral. Sometimes you just really don’t want to, but you know you have to send your condolences. Funeral flowers can be purchased online so and be hand-delivered by a local florist as soon as the same day in most cases at

So I restarted Final Fantasy XII...

OVer 100 hours in and I did it because I missed the Zodiac Spear. Yeah right...Actually I was 136 hour in and from what I gather no where near the end. I quit playing for like a month and didn't know where I was at so I had to start over. First time I ever played one of these with out a guide so I just wandered around like an idiot for hours on end and had my characters so leveled up that bosses were like fighting the French. They just gave up.

Jesus Puts His Foot in His Mouth

In the town square a nasty crowd had gathered, intending to stone to death a prostitute. From the crowd, Jesus strides forward, holds up his arms and yells "Let ye without sin cast the first stone!"

The crowd is contrite, for none amongst them can honestly say they are without sin. Then a little old, withered up woman comes hobbling up, picks up a good size rock and beans the prostitute right between the eyes.

Jesus just stands there with his hands on his hips and says, "Sometimes, Mother, you really piss me off!"

Get ME Out of the Snow. Get Me to Jamaica.

It’s time to get out of here. There is a mountain of snow at the edge of my driveway and every time I remove it some guy who never sleeps decides tat he is going to drive by and push more snow in front of it. He’s sitting around the corner waiting. I know this.

Enough of that. What to do? How about a vacation to a Jamaica all inclusive resort from With the launch of their new cutting edge website it has never been easier to book a trip out of this frozen tundra and onto a beach with no worries except how much sunscreen to bring. Right now they are talking about savings of up to 50% off so there isn’t a much better time to take the plunge and get some sun.

N.J. warns: Don't eat squirrel near dump

The crazies are out today. If you had to tell me that eating a squirrel I shot near a toxic waste dump was bad for me, odds are I was going to win a Darwin Award at some point so really why would you bother? Didn't realize the economy was getting this bad that we had to resort to eating mutated squirrel meat. What are we cavemen? Sorry Geico spokesmen.

TRENTON, N.J. - New Jersey has warned squirrel hunters near a toxic waste dump about consuming the critters because they could be contaminated with lead.

It is the first time the state has cautioned Ringwood residents - many who are members of the Ramapough Mountain Indian tribe who hunt and fish in the area - about their squirrel intake, said Tom Slater, a spokesman for the Department of Health and Senior Services.

A lead-contaminated squirrel was found in the area two months ago, prompting the agency, along with the state Department of Environmental Protection, to send out letters advising that adults eat squirrel no more than twice a week and even less for children and pregnant women.

Wash. lawmaker: Bars should allow dogs

What is it with dog lovers this week. First there was the guy that decided it was a good idea to make $2 beers for dogs that like to drink out of the toilet and now this moron is rambling on about how dogs should be allowed to get into bars. I've heard a dog is a man's best friend, but when he becomes your true drinking buddy you have some serious people problems.

OLYMPIA, Wash. - If dog-loving lawmakers prevail, Fido could soon be sidling up to bar stools around Washington state.

Soggy dogs waiting outside a downtown Olympia pub inspired state Sen. Ken Jacobsen to propose a way to get them in from the cold and rain.

"There's all sorts of places you can bring animals now," said Jacobsen, who doesn't own a dog. "You can take dogs into hotels. My God, some people are carrying dogs in their purses. Why can't we have them in the bars?"

Nuns at Heaven's Gates

Four nuns were standing in line at the gates of heaven. Peter asks the first if she has ever sinned. "Well, once I looked at a man's penis," she said. "Put some of this holy water on your eyes and you may enter heaven," Peter told her. Peter then asked the second nun if she had ever sinned. "Well, once I held a man's penis," she replied. "Put your hand in this holy water and you may enter heaven," he said. Just then the fourth nun pushed ahead of the third nun. Peter asked her, "Why did you push ahead in line?" She said, "Because I want to gargle before she sits in it!"


A blonde went to a hair dresser's one day, listening to a walkman. The hair dresser asked her what she wanted, and the blonde replied, "I need to get my hair trimmed, just make sure that you do not take these headphones off." The woman looked at the blonde, surprised, but did as she was told. While she was brushing the blonde's hair, she accidentally bumped the headphones, knocking them to the ground. As she bent down to pick them up, the blonde fell over, onto the floor. The hair dresser was very confused. She picked up the head phones and listened. This is what she heard...

"breath in...breath out...breath in...breath out..."!

Weapons-grade uranium seized

As if this is suprising. Too bad they didn't find any in Iraq, eh? Couldn't these guys just plant some by now? They've been over there long enough. I guess we should be grateful of the honesty over there at least.

Vienna - The UN nuclear agency warned on Thursday that the case of a Russian man who allegedly tried to sell a small amount of weapons-grade uranium could be a sign of wider availability of such dangerous material.

The New York Times reported on Wednesday that Georgia had sentenced a Russian man to eight and a half years in prison for trying to sell 100g of highly enriched uranium (HEU) in January 2005.

The International Atomic Energy Agency "is aware of the case and expects formal notification from Georgian authorities soon", IAEA spokesperson Melissa Fleming said.

The Chicken Book Delivery Service

A pair of chickens walk up to the circulation desk at a public library and say, 'Buk Buk BUK.' The librarian decides that the chickens desire three books, and gives it to them...and the chickens leave shortly thereafter.

Around midday, the two chickens return to the circulation desk quite vexed and say,' Buk Buk BuKKOOK!' The librarian decides that the chickens desire another three books and gives it to them. The chickens leave as before.

The two chickens return to the library in the early afternoon, approach the librarian, looking very annoyed and say, 'Buk Buk Buk Buk Bukkooook!' The librarian is now a little suspicious of these chickens. She gives them what they request, and decides to follow them.

She followed them out of the library, out of the town, and to a park. At this point, she hid behind a tree, not wanting to be seen. She saw the two chickens throwing the books at a frog in a pond, to which the frog was saying, "Rrredit Rrredit Rrredit..."

Baggy pants trip up robbery suspect

Lt. West probably has been waiting to say that in the press for years. Congrats Jack. Close enough to Webb I guess. The kid on the other hand tried to keep it real I guess and it ended up costing him his street cred I'm going to guess. How ironic.

COVINGTON, La. - Police said they caught a 16-year-old robbery suspect who had eluded authorities on several previous occasions when his baggy pants fell down, causing him to stumble as officers chased him.

"We literally caught him with his pants down," Lt. Jack West of Covington police said.

Suspected of robbing a man at gunpoint and stealing another man's car after beating him with a brick, the teenager had run away from police several times in recent weeks, West said.

School requires silence during lunch

This is old school Catholic right here. I went to a Catholic school and at our lunches we usually had food fights. Of course we didn't have choking incidents really either other than this guy at our table that used to eat too fast and had to cough the food out of his windpipe everyday.

WARWICK, R.I. - The chapel isn't the only place where silence is expected at one Rhode Island Catholic school. The Saint Rose of Lima School in Warwick has new lunch rules that require students to remain silent during lunch.

The move comes after three recent choking incidents in the school cafeteria.

Pet shop owner creates beer for dogs

Ummm...dude. People give dogs beer all the time and it doesn't cost $2 a bottle for it. This has to be one of the stupidest ideas I've ever seen.

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands - After a long day hunting, there's nothing like wrapping your paw around a cold bottle of beer. So Terrie Berenden, a pet shop owner in the southern Dutch town of Zelhem, created a beer for her Weimaraners made from beef extract and malt.

"Once a year we go to Austria to hunt with our dogs, and at the end of the day we sit on the verandah and drink a beer. So we thought, my dog also has earned it," she said.

Find a mortgage lender

When selecting a mortgage lender it seems to be a daunting task. Where do you start? Phone book? Search engine? Just go to your bank? I’ve been down this road before and it just came to the point where I settled for the first lender to give me the loan because I didn’t want to do the legwork of finding a better offer. Mortgage lenders shouldn’t be this hard to find. Lenders can be found online easily with a mortgage site. Just put in a few snippets of info and there will be a comparison chart for some lenders to choose from. In stead of calling around you can find what you need with out actually having to drive all over the place. Find a broker online and you will get a much better deal.

Bears and Colts to the Super Bowl

Not exactly the match up I was hoping for, but I guess it should be a good game. It all depends on which Payton Manning shows up and which Bears defense shows up. Both are capable of great things, but both have seemed to have those games where they didn't show up this year at crucial moments. I think the Bears could win if they have one of those crazy Bears defense days, but Indy is clearly better in my mind.

Colts 30
Bears 17
