Adorable video of previously abused ducks that are rescued and get to enjoy water for the first time!
This is absolutely adorable. These ducks came from a hoarding case, and they had never been in the water before.
At first they do NOT like it and they jump out. Then one cute guy starts to enjoy it, and then a few more and soon all of the ducks are having a blast.
This is sure to make you smile.
I just banned this jerk from my Sara Casm page: (https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=701227454)
Apparently he seems to think that tipping is optional and that he has a right to not pay for good service when he goes out to eat. I have to wonder, how hard is it to treat others the same way that you would like to be treated? I don’t care if you vote straight ticket Republican, if you have this angry, bitter, selfish attitude, if you want to ride free off the back of others, then you are not showing any signs of being a true conservative, patriotic American.
I’ve done some awful jobs in my life, but I have never been a waitress. My best friend during my freshman year in college was a really smart, beautiful girl that happened to come from a poor family. She worked HARD for her money and was saving up to go to law school. She waited tables at Bennigan’s in Arlington in the evening while the rest of us freshman kids were out partying and spending our parent’s money. She wasn’t jealous, she was determined. I respected her so much.
She would tell me stories about entire tables that would get up without paying, without tipping and men that would sexually harass her. It was a hard job but she did it.
Ever since then, I always tip good for good service because I can empathize. If I get bad service (and I rarely do) then I tip accordingly, but because I tip well, I usually get great service, especially from places that I frequent. Your attitude towards your waiter/waitress also has a LOT to do with your service.
An X of mine once actually took $3 out of a tip that I left once. He gave it to me afterwards and said I tipped too much. (He was a unemployed and living off of me at the time). That made me furious. This man was taking advantage of my generosity and not paying for his own dinner, but he did not want me to be generous to others that actually worked and had a job.
I really can’t comprehend not tipping when someone has worked so hard to take care of you and bring you whatever you needed during a nice meal. Who does that?
This guy then got in his mind that I was a waitress, used vulgarities against me for being a waitress (even though I told him I am not), threatened violence against me and claimed that I was the one with an entitlement problem. Once again, I think the world has gone backwards.
Jerks like this will get what is coming to them. Too bad I won’t be around to see it. 🙂
Ok, so I finally moved my 4 koi over to the new tank, so that I can put cichlids in my big tank in my living room.
I don’t have this decorated like I want yet, I am only using the decorations that came with this tank when I got it on Craig’s list.
I got an acrylic 55 gallon, Marineland filter, gravel, magnetic cleaner, scrub brush, water tests, etc for only $100. And the girl that I bought it from was the most amazing person. She is a public school history teacher and was leaving her comfortable school district in Arlington to go teach on the bad side of Dallas in an inner city school because she wanted to make a difference to children that may have never been told they were smart before.
I got tears in my eyes listening to her, and we hugged after we had talked for about an hour.
You never know what type of people you will meet buying things on Craig’s List. She and I both wanted to meet in a public place, but we quickly knew we didn’t have to worry. We were kindred spirits.
Anyway, back to the tank, my koi are a bit unsure, so they are hanging out close together. I’ve had them since they were all able to fit in a 10 gallon comfortable. I guess they were about 1.5 inches when I got them. One of them is almost a foot long now. I don’t know what I am going to do when they get huge. I guess I’ll just go back to Craig’s list and find a 125 gallon tank!
Yep, I just got banned from Facebook for the eleventh-third time. Does it bother me? Actually, no! It gives me a fantastic opportunity to show the insane hypocrisy of Facebook and the people running the media – social media included.
VEE MAHST NICHT KRITICIZE ZEE FÜHRER!
Even though my family is German and my last name is German, I would have been a lousy nazi. Yeah, I would have been shot the first time I didn’t salute.
So, here is a big picture to show the hypocrisy of Facebook. The first picture was on my Congressman’s page. It was the first time I ever saw a woman threatened to sodomize and rape a man. As a female, I had never even considered that option. That blew my mind. Ha!
Yes, liberals all fell down and cried when conservatives even used the terms “target” or “aim” after Gabby Giffords was shot, but now they can physically threaten members of Congress, just as long as they are conservatives.
A bunch of my friends reported her comment for a variety of reasons, and FB sent them the same message saying it didn’t violate any rules. But, oh, my picture was worth removing from the public’s view.
Will I retreat and go to a conservative run social media sight? Heck no! I agree with Winston Churchill:
“We shall go on to the end, we shall fight on Facebook,
we shall fight on the seas and oceans,
we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our ideas, whatever the cost may be,
we shall fight on the beaches,
we shall fight on the landing grounds,
we shall fight in the fields and in the streets,
we shall fight in the hills;
we shall never surrender!”
Ok, I did change a few words, but you get the idea. ヅ
I have noticed more and more hatred online in the past week than ever before. I have also noticed more demonic looking profile pics and posts, which I am sure is partly due to it being October with Halloween coming up.
I still don’t know exactly how much the internet imitates real life. When I go out, I haven’t noticed anymore hatred in public than before. My guess is that these tough talking little twerps feel pretty cool posting pictures of demons and screaming vulgarities online, but when you actually see them in public, all they can say is, “Welcome to McDonalds, can I take your order?” as they are barely able to make eye contact. ヅ
I do seriously believe in spirits and I do know when my spirit clashes with someone else’s. I’ve sensed it, and I have often gotten bad feelings about certain people and certain things. I’ve looked people in the eye and sensed pure evil….even through a television screen.
Then again, I have thought someone was nice, and given them things and been nice to them while they were stealing me blind! So, I can be very naive too. But when I get a bad feeling, I don’t ignore it. We do struggle with things much deeper than what we see on the surface. These verses from Ephesians 6 just popped in my head, so I thought I would share them.
I’m not preaching at you, you probably have your own pastor for that. But, I’m just sharing my thoughts like I often do on here, and these verses came into my head.
Just remember, this Earth isn’t the only thing that exists. I kind of view earth like I view elementary school. When I was in 3rd grade, I was devastated when I found out that the boy I had a crush on thought I was goofy. Also, I did think my life was over when my skirt got caught on the swing and nearly ripped off during recess in front of everyone on the playground. Yes, things back then seemed like a big deal, but looking back it was not that important. I think the same thing goes with our earthly life. Heaven is going to be amazing, and the little problems on earth aren’t that big of a deal in the long run.
Oh, and if you think I am crazy for thinking there is a heaven and you want to ridicule me, that’s okay. I can handle it. It just as big of a deal as when my skirt got ripped in recess in 3rd grade. I’ll live through it. Actually, I’ll laugh through it, too. ~Lp
This is the conversation I had with the person that called himself Jesus and called me a “racist, c*nt” and a “POS twunt.”
His page is full of some really evil stuff, and he has other pages with demonic goats raping women and other hateful, misogynistic, demonic pictures.
There comes a point when I can see a person that is so hurt, so angry, and so possessed that I can’t even be sarcastic anymore. This person hiding behind all of these demonic pages has some serious issues and he needs God. Of course, presenting God to him could cause a violent reaction.
Demonically possessed people really lash out at anyone filled with the Holy Spirit. I do take it as a compliment to be hated so intensely. There was a time in my life when I was no threat to forces of evil because I was participating in it.
I’m not much for telling people “I’ll pray for you!” in a self-righteous tone. I used to have obnoxious religious types yell that at me. So I just simply presented him with a link to my church service that is broadcasting live right now. Will he click on it? Probably not. But at least I presented him with an alternative to the miserable hate that he is wallowing in.
It is a sad sight to see people that lost, that much in the darkness. Here is a link to the thread. It might get taken down, or he might take down his responses, so I included a screen shot.
