Chenille baby blue chick just hatched in time for Easter!

If Dems loose this battle in Supreme court wouldn't that just make one less point that republicans

can ague about during the election? I mean Mittens can't say he is fighting to be president to get rid of Obamacare because Obamacare will have been gotten rid of so what will be his platform?

Right now they have so many people fighting for them just to fight against Obamacare. Take that out of the package and you take the wind out of a lot of people's sails.

I say don't worry about this all that much. Whatever happens happens.

New doll.

I just had to post this again because no one clicked on the link in my last one. And then after I posted the picture no one looked at my doll.

So here he is:

My new obsession that I am selling now on Etsy. Amigurumi

http://www.etsy.com/listing/95313221/orange-alien-amigurumi-baby-with

It is Japanese for "in the round" or for crocheting "in the round" and I have been nuts about it for about 3 months now. I have just placed a few things up on Etsy because I am becoming surrounded by stuffed animals in my house and I'm afraid they will one night come alive while I am asleep. So here is one of them. I call her Ellie.


New study links low I.Q. with racism and conservatism

http://www.examiner.com/political-buzz-in-providence/new-study-links-low-intelligence-with-racism-and-conservatism

The study, which was published in Psychological Science, demonstrated that people who score low on I.Q. tests in childhood are more likely to become conservative in their adult life and develop racial prejudices.

Also known as intelligence quotient testing, I.Q. scores are gathered through standardized testing. Experts indicate that I.Q. testing often underestimates actual intelligence and psychologists disagree as to whether they reveal true intelligence at all.

Despite the debate, Dr. Gordon Hodson, a professor of psychology at Brock University and lead researcher on the study, contends that the data is legitimate.

Hodson argues that he is not stating that liberals are smarter than conservatives or vice versa, but rather that there is a connection between racism, strong conservatism and intelligence levels.

I just paid over $300 in overage fees to Verison wireless and I was never told that I could go

"over" on the damn internet when I signed up with them in the first place! I still find it hard to believe you can go "over" on the internet! Is this some new damn scam?

I swear to you I wasn't told anything about usage when I bought the router and signed my life away with Verison. And yes I got a couple emails talking about overages but my Mom is nice enough to have me on her Verison cell phone plan so I thought that was a mistake and forwarded the emails to her because once we both went over on the cell phones. I even checked my cell phone usage and made sure I was OK with that. I never thought it was about the internet!

But now I am totally screwed! This is a lot of money and I don't think I should pay it but I don't know how to not pay it. They are supposed to give me $60 back, at least she said she would, but I haven't seen it on my Verison page site yet.

And get this. While I was talking to her earlier I was at 1.5 GB used and I turned the computer off because I was so upset and now that I have turned it back on I am at 1.7 GB. WTF! Is it that easy to go from 1.5 to 1.7 GB?
It could be that the day had changed since it went past 12am and now we are into March 3rd instead of the 2nd when I technically talked to her.

But even when I just have my computer on the internet light comes on and my router starts blinking. The damn waves are running through my freaking head even when I am not "on" the internet.

If I need to put this in the computer section please tell me or tell me where I should put it. I thought it might be something that others are experiencing and a new scam that is just coming out and might be good right here though.
