ode to garbage cans everywhere

Oh garbage cans ~

you giants of garbage  ~  you titans of trash  ~  you royals of recycling

oh how you taunt us...

we both love and hate you ~

your odor is revolting,  your appearance is offensive

yet on garbage day we love you as your treasures are emptied into the depths of the truck, releasing you from your heavy smelly burden we lay upon you each week

you stand soundless, steadfast and ugly through all weather, waiting... You are always there for us, like a faithful friend

It is written you are to be hidden from view at all times, yet some do not follow, leaving you out in all your offensive grandeur, for all to see ~ some who do not follow tattle on others and find offense,

days go past and yet you are still visible, not hidden but glorified in your magnificence

yet why... if any cans can be seen and glorified then why can't they all be? Why must some be shamed and hidden while others openly displayed?

why oh why garbage cans ~  why

today's motto

So - today is a new day, thank the heavens!!  All rejoice and be glad!!     I put the looking glass in the drawer (last nights post reference)

My motto for the day is - many of you will agree and love it while a few may be offended - sorry in advance -but whatever ...

 MOTTO~ ~ ~

No annoying, stupid or mean people welcome today! No exceptions!  Closed to all but friendly smiling faces!!  Come back never!  I will reopen for your desire of unending drama then.  Have a nice day.

Yup - that's the motto for the day!!  Maybe I should make a door hanging that says that... imagine how many I could sell!!

Thank you to all who said a prayer yesterday or a shout out to the universe on my behalf or those who still do ... to those who are the cause of negativity and bringers of hate - karma baby - karma 

just adding - it worked !!  no stupid, mean or drama seekers bothered me all day!!  Had a pretty good day and evening!  Motto worked ...  good to know~!

this is Steve ...

so this is Steve ... my pool buddy in Hawaii - he was so cute. Every time I went to the pool there he was ...
My daughter said I did not name him well - Steve is not original - but it was Steve non the less...

I guess they eat bugs... YAY!! and spiders... even more YAY!!  I miss Steve he was cute ...

I learned, as I watched in horror with my mouth hanging open I am sure, a new game in Hawaii... you can play it anywhere I guess... it is not a good or nice game... so maybe don't read this out loud to any young ears... I bring this up as Steven and his kind are the main characters.

You take an empty water bottle... yep already not starting out well... place in one frightened gecko, place cap back on - with no air holes... and kick the living %&$# out of the bottle... poor things!! Oh and mom's you just stand there, glance at what is happening and look away as you ignore it all... (insert sad face here!!)

I am glad Steve is safe back at the hotel by the pool and away form water bottles!!!

What/who is Cyberstalking -

Welcome back to my world - first let me apologize about the font - it changes...???

Let’s take a moment to talk about an important current issue going on all over the world – one that may happen to any of us at any time – cyber stalking. This can be done by anyone - people we may know or may not know.

In a recent article I read  -   More than one million women and 370,000 men are stalked annually in the United States. -  How scary does this sound!! That is just here in the US. This does not include any place else in the world...

So what is cyber stalking? What do people mean when the say I am being cyber stalked?  

The definition below is the most complete I found, although I will admit I did not look that long. It is from Wikipedia – ok not the most wonderful source at times… or authoritative but still can be very informative…..

cyberstalking is the use of the Internet or other electronic means to stalk or harass an individual, a group of individuals, or an organization. It may include false accusations, monitoring, making threats, identity theft, damage to data or equipment, the solicitation of minors for sex, or gathering information in order to harass. Cyberstalking is different from spatial or offline stalking. However, it sometimes leads to it, or is accompanied by it.[2]

Further information: Stalking

Stalking is a continuous process, consisting of a series of actions, each of which may be entirely legal in itself. Technology ethics professor Lambèr Royakkers writes that:

"Stalking is a form of mental assault, in which the perpetrator repeatedly, unwantedly, and disruptively breaks into the life-world of the victim, with whom he has no relationship (or no longer has), with motives that are directly or indirectly traceable to the affective sphere. Moreover, the separated acts that make up the intrusion cannot by themselves cause the mental abuse, but do taken together (cumulative effect)."[3]

CyberAngels has written about how to identify cyberstalking:

When identifying cyberstalking "in the field," and particularly when considering whether to report it to any kind of legal authority, the following features or combination of features can be considered to characterize a true stalking situation: malice, premeditation, repetition, distress, obsession, vendetta, no legitimate purpose, personally directed, disregarded warnings to stop, harassment, and threats.[4]

So after reading this and thinking about it – I do hope none of you are being cyberstalked…  (it can be unsettling in the least) 

So before I close – I will just say to all who read this – 

PLEASE do not cyber stalk me. If you are currently, please cease this behavior immediately. You must have better and more constructive things to do with your time… 

It is not your right to know what I am doing or to be included in any intimate part of my life or know details I do not tell you myself. It is not your right to invade my life or privacy. It is not your right to be part of my life in any way. If I wanted you in my life I would included you and invite you into my inner circle myself and openly share with you so you would not have to find information out covertly, wasting hours of your time to find out - what...?? I saw an eagle...OOOOoooo... big time stuff there!

I urge those reading to sign up for Google alerts to be notified when you are searched as a starting place. It is a bit strange when notifications come through, but you know ... I have received a few just today... so am I being cyber stalked?? 

To those of you who are reading this who are not cyber stalking me but are simply regular readers - thanks for reading and be weary. I hope you come back again soon. You come from all over the world. I enjoy reading other blogs and I know most of those who stop by here are just reading my blog then moving onto the next, not cyber stalking ...
