    I’ve been keeping track of Oklahoma teacher’s arrests to prove a point to someone who claimed it’s only a few a year.
    Less than three weeks into May and already there has been one arrested for 1st degree rape, another for sexual battery(this one was against another teacher, both females and the one came up behind the other and grabbed her crotch and rectum), one for meth(she was in possession of it at school and was also high), another for heroin.
    This is just for the month of May.

    I ran across this as I was listening to music. I don’t know anything about this woman, maybe she is famous now? Don’t really care about that part—but I was blown away by not just her voice but her personally. The video is long, but I am talking about the first performer only. LOL She was so good I never got past that. I hope some enjoy.

    This Brit series is similar to some of the reality real estate shows in the U.S. “Escape To The Country” has fun history lessons included, though…

    “Escape To The Country”
    Suffolk County and Norfolk County are the property locations for this episode. 40 minutes.

    Need to blow off steam – about the useless local Postal Service.

    I have “Informed Delivery” from the USPS. You can see what mail and packages are being delivered to you. NOTE: They know my name and address, and what mail and packages are for me.

    I was expecting a package from Land’s End. It was supposed to be delivered before 8:00 pm, according to Informed Delivery. Wasn’t delivered (what a shock). Instead, there is an update on Informed Delivery that my package could not be delivered at 7:10 pm last night because “The address may be incorrect, incomplete, or illegible.” No explanation, no indication what I should do. I called Lands End, and they are attempting to resolve the problem.

      Update: Lands End called back. First the post office told her that the package had been sent back, then they said that the new driver yesterday didn’t know where I lived, but the regular driver has it now and it will be delivered today. Let’s hope.

      For fun, I checked the Yelp ratings on my post office. Most of them are one star, and some people said they would give them zero stars if it was possible.

        I sent a check to a place I send a check to every month. The place called, hmmmm, did you mean to not send a check? No I sent a check. $35.00 bank charge to cancel a check. That is my $35.00 dollars and I really see mo reason to give my money to the bank when I did nothing wrong.

        three weeks later I get the envelope back in the mail. “Return to sender Not deliverable as addressed unable to forward.” I call the place and ask if they moved or their address changed. Nope.

        So I resend the the check to the same address and it gets there in 2 days.

        Post Office doesn’t know what could have happened since my envelope is clearly legible.

      During the Christmas season I had a package long overdue. Went to the post office. They brought out some piece of paper that according to them said the shipper put it in the system and it never actually went out. BTW, the post office was the end shipper. It went out FedEx I believe, and their system said it was in my zip code, out for delivery, which had been the status for days. I call the company, they reship, two days later I get the original package. Which by the way the vendor assured me had indeed shipped.

      Also, our driver won’t bring packages up my driveway and I have to go stand in line to get them, which infuriates me, as the driver will leave a card saying they attempted delivery and I wasn’t home.

      I have gone into the post office and tried to talk to the postmaster who actually refused to come out and speak to me.

      When I was in management to refuse to talk to a customer would have gotten me fired immediately. Sure can tell government employees.

      I hate that Fedex turns over packages to the local post office.

        When I lived in GA, they were having a problem with SS checks not being delivered and cash money disappearing in the mail. It turned out to be the postal carrier and her car was full of opened empty envelopes, etc. She didn’t even have the brains to throw it all away.

          A woman I knew in Los Angeles was a longtime postal worker. One of her coworkers, a 20-year veteran of USPS, always seemed to have plenty of money, designer clothes, great jewelry, nice car. Her teenage daughter also had expensive items.

          Somewhere along the line, her coworkers recognized that something was amiss and an investigation ensued. Came the day that the feds showed up at the post office, put her in cuffs and perp walked her straight out to the paddy wagon.

          Turned out for the entire time she worked for USPS, she was also receiving full welfare payments. She was arrested, tried, convicted and sent to prison for fraud. Her daughter had to go live with relatives. All their possessions were forfeited.

          My friend was smiling as she told this story. LOL!

    The company name is Lupine Pet, they are located in New Hampshire, and their products are made in the USA. They guarantee their products, even if your pet chews them!

    Tucker recently chewed through one of the straps on his step-in harness (while he was wearing it). All I had to do was fill out a form on their website, attach a digital photo of the item, and they sent me a replacement within a few days. No receipt required.

    Their stuff isn’t cheap. The harness I have costs $16.99, but it is very well made. Tucker wears the matching collar, and we have a matching leash, which has a padded handle. His pattern is called Crazy Daisy.

      I spray “Bitter Apple” on new leash, harness, and some bed mattresses when they first arrive and the Terrorist Chewing Caniine gets a dose of bitter from the get go re that article. Seems to work as a training aid. Chewing is a behavior that has to be eventualy trained away, I am told, as it gets worse with boredom and mischief making in general…like excessive barking.

        If I had taken the harness off when we came in the house, he wouldn’t have chewed it. Doesn’t change my product recommendation, though. Lupine Pet manufactures well-made products in the USA and has an excellent guarantee!

    Playboy Playmate took young son on fatal leap from NYC building

    A former Playboy Playmate jumped with her 7-year-old son to their deaths from a Midtown hotel Friday β€” amid a nasty custody battle with her chiropractic ex, sources told The Post.

    Stephanie Adams, 47, leaped with young Vincent from the top floor of the Gotham Hotel around 8:15 a.m., sources said.

    The pair checked into the hotel around 6 p.m. Thursday and were staying in a 25th-floor penthouse suite, NYPD Chief of Manhattan Detectives William Aubrey said at a press conference.

    Their bodies were found on a second-floor landing in the hotel’s rear courtyard.

    Beautiful Scripture readings and homily today…

    Daily Catholic Mass – 2018-05-18 – Fr. Mark Mary


    Luke 12:22-31…
    And he said to his disciples, “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you shall eat, nor about your body, what you shall put on. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds! And which of you by being anxious can add a cubit to his span of life? If then you are not able to do as small a thing as that, why are you anxious about the rest? Consider the lilies, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin; yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass which is alive in the field today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will he clothe you, O men of little faith! And do not seek what you are to eat and what you are to drink, nor be of anxious mind. For all the nations of the world seek these things; and your Father knows that you need them. Instead, seek his kingdom, and these things shall be yours as well.

    Colossians 3:12-17
    Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassion, kindness, lowliness, meekness, and patience, forbearing one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teach and admonish one another in all wisdom, and sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
