Recognition Marketing - Reaching Your Clients For You

Photo Sharing - Upload Video - Video Sharing


I would like to take a moment to give my sister’s new company a plug. Recognition Marketing is located in Granbury, TX (just outside Fort Worth, TX), and specializes in reaching your customers and vendors for you in various aspects of marketing. Melody Miller, owner, will handle all that time consuming mass mailing and periodic contacting you need to do with your vendors and customers to keep the personal touch going in your own business.

I live in Nevada, and I have had her do some work for me all the way from Texas with good results for my companies. Each year, it’s really hard to find the extra time to personally send over 500 Christmas Cards, all the birthday and anniversary mailings necessary, and keep customers and vendors up to date on business promotions or events. Recognition Marketing will do all your mailings for you, and maintain your company’s database and free up a lot of that time you need to run your business efficiently. Melody is also a graphic artist, and is able to personally design news flyers, or ad brochures to fit your specific needs.

The holidays are fast approaching; please take the time to check out available holiday and Christmas mailings available at the RECOGNITION MARKETING holiday site
. Order your cards today. Let Recognition Marketing help you stay in touch ! There will be a permanent link to the Recognition Marketing Holiday site in my Links / Blogroll section if you need to find it later :)

Whitney Rodriguez - Singing For A Chance

Photo Sharing - Upload Video - Video Sharing

This is Whitney Rodriguez. Her mother Glenda is trying hard to promote her daughter's spawning singing career. Whitney is 12 years old and exploring a singing career. She has competed in her first big competition, and her Mom would appreciate a vote, and the top prize is $50,000 which would go a long way towards her college.

My son is a senior football player this year, and we are all over video and play stats, and college combines, etc. I totally understand the love and effort we put into our children's achievements. I will never be able to measure any success in my life to the joy and success of the priviledge of having and loving my two sons. As we rednecks say..."Every old crow believes her's is the blackest!" After all, in this life, it IS ALL ABOUT THE KIDS.

Glenda read my blog, and reached out to ask for a bit of promotion for her daughter. Hey, I'm a mother, why not? I'll give any deserving kid a spot at Blah Blah Blog - The Soap Box. Glenda simply asked, "If you feel the performance is deserving, please click THIS LINK and give her daughter a listen. Whitney is #59 at THIS LINK, and if you click on the "VOTE HERE - Voting Ballot Popup" link above the photos, you may post a vote for #59 Whitney Rodriguez. Any 12 year old with the balls to get up and perform to her best gets a vote of mine. I clicked, and I voted. Hey, we ARE in election times... I guarantee you it gave me more pleasure to vote for Whitney than it did to have to choose over some in our latest REAL primary!!

Polygamist Warren Steed Jeffs Arrested In Las Vegas

Photo Sharing - Upload Video - Video Sharing

Well, the weirdoes are dropping like flies lately. Warren Steed Jeffs, 50 who was on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted List, was arrested in Las Vegas, NV driving a 2007 Red Cadillac Escalade (a “very unobvious” vehicle of choice).

Jeffs is the leader of the nut wing branch of the Mormon Church, the Fundamental Church of The Latter Day Saints. His cult following spanning over 10,000 followers (mostly by force and under duress if you ask me), believe you must have at least 3 wives to enter heaven. Warren Jeffs had 80 wives and approximately 250 children, some of the wives belonged first to his late father. DAMN, what man would wish to put up with the nagging of 80 wives!! NEWS ARTICLE HERE

Jeffs was nabbed in Las Vegas by a highway patrolman, and faces charges of sexual misconduct, molestation of minor children, and arranging marriages of under age girls to older men. He had a cell phone, wigs, and $50,000 in cash on him at his time of arrest. If you would like more insight into this freaks brain and how he thought, read THIS ARTICLE. He makes one wonder how someone like this ever got to be in such power. Most sane communities would have had him shot in the head and lost in desert years ago. Good riddance to the human population.

OK, one polygamist down, and one to go…Osama Bin Laden is next we hope!

John Mark Karr - OFF THE HOOK !

Photo Sharing - Upload Video - Video Sharing

Well...another bad idea gone worse. Nutjob Karr is off the hook, and Boulder officials have dropped this case. DNA DID NOT MATCH... We'll probably NEVER know who killed Jon Benet Ramsey.

Karr will be sent back to Sonoma, CA to face child pornography charges dating back to 2001. At least he's off the streets for a while.



My goodness... I've battled this little chore for years. I can never seem to get a shirt folded like they have them in the packages. I never seem to have that "neat suitcase" with perfect shirts packed in order. Leave it to the brilliant Asians to put out a few second video that explains it all perfectly. I have no idea what language this video is in, but it's irrelevant to hear it, it's watching it that will give you perfect shirts in seconds. Enjoy...

I Got Taken By A Midget !


Photo Sharing - Upload Video - Video Sharing

This little guy is Jason Lowe of Arizona. He came strolling into my office today and was hilarious from the moment he came walking in. He is a travelling salesman midget that sells Titan Orange Cleaner by Blaze Products. This shit sells for $325 per case!!!

Now, do I REALLY need a years supply of cleaner...even though it is amazing...NO, NO, AND HELL NO!! However, this guy was so funny and brilliant, and cracked so many hilarious midget jokes, I damn near married him before he left. So yes, I got taken by a midget, but this midget was worth $325.

He says his father owns the company, but for a price, perhaps he would work for you. This fellow could sell tropical beach front property in Antartica! If you ever have the pleasure to meet him, get out your checkbook and then you'll hate midgets too :) (Those were his words not mine). This stranger made all of our days today. He must be one of God's little angels making a killing off people like me.

Anyone need to buy some cleaner? I'll make you a deal....

Kidnapping - Fox Journalists - Jill Carroll - Natascha Kampusch


Photo Sharing - Upload Video - Video Sharing

Steve Centanni & Olaf Wiig

In light of the kidnapping of Fox News reporter & cameraman Steve Centanni and Olaf Wiig, my mind has been drawn to several kidnapping stories of late. I want to briefly profile the three cases and wish from my heart that Centanni & Wiig have the same wonderful ending to their saga as the other two persons did. Through a lot of ugliness, two other cases ended in bliss.

A previously unknown terrorist group calling themselves the Holy Jihad Brigades ambushed the Fox journalists in Gaza and took them against their will. Ten days later, a video was released

Photo Sharing - Upload Video - Video Sharing
showing the two pleading for their release, and the terrorists demanding that all male and female Muslim prisoners be released from US jails in exchange for the hostages. Since that time, no further word has been heard, and the entire USA hopes for their safe release without condition since we as a nation will not bend and concede to terrorist demands.

You all remember Jill Carroll? She was captured by terrorist mujahideen in Bagdad, Iraq. Her interpreter was murdered by the terrorists, and her driver managed to escape. Their demands were almost identical as those holding the Fox reporters. After a long three months in captivity, her captors let her go. Let’s hope for the sake of the Fox journalists, the same thing happens to them.

I HIGHLY ENCOURAGE YOU TO READ SOME OF THESE LINKS… “The Jill Carroll Story” is an amazing detailed version of Jill’s captivity from her words. It makes for great reading, and brings a whole new light to the reality of terrorist kidnapping to laypeople like you and I. I found myself enthralled in her stories. There are a lot of links within the links, as the story was told in something like 9 parts or more possibly. Below are the links to some of the stories.

Jill Carroll Story

This absolutely unbelievable story comes from a young Austrian woman. Natascha Kampusch was kidnapped on her way to school when she was only 10 years old. Now at the age of 18, she managed to break free and escape her captor Wolfgang Priklopil, who before authorities could capture him…, committed suicide by throwing himself in front of a train. You must read the story of this miracle. Local community residents were SHOCKED, as all this time things seemed normal in the household of Priklopil where Natascha had been held for eight years against her will.

Wal-Mart Greeter TRIES To Be Cordial

Photo Sharing - Upload Video - Video Sharing

A very unattractive, mean actin' woman walks into Walmart with her two kids.

After shoving her way past several customers waiting to get carts, she says to the Wal-Mart greeter, "Go through those carts and find me one that doesn't need oiling for once!"

"Yes Ma'am, happy to oblige," says the Greeter, and goes and picks out a cart for her. "Here you are, Ma'am, hope this one is okay," he says.

"If you'd get out of my way, maybe I could find out!" snaps the woman.

"Sorry, Ma'am," the Greeter says, standing aside, "And you and the twins have a nice day."

The woman snarls, "They're not twins, you moron! They don't even look alike."

The greeter smiles, "No they don't Ma'am. I just couldn't believe you got laid twice."

Casa D’Ice owner and proprietor is my NEWEST AMERICAN HERO. Ya’ll know I’m a redneck with long standing southern roots, but Mr. Bill Balsamico, Italian immigrant, 60 years old, with a history of starting an American business and being successful as a business owner, and ABOVE ALL HAVING THE BARE BALLS to say what we all want to say is my adopted Yankee HERO.

Mr. Balsamico began as a successful ice business owner, and has turned Casa D’Ice into a successful restaurant and bar in North Versailles, PA. I don’t know if I have any readers from PA, but if I do… PLEASE GO AND HAVE A MEAL at Casa D’Ice. The EXTENSIVE MENU looks good from here (even for a flat-lander like me), and the signs he posts outside his restaurant make me wish he would run for President. I’m going to post a long line of photos of his signs below this post. Scroll through, and know that I only posted a few. Visit the website CASADICE.COM and search out the MP3 interview, and purchase some great items from the store.

Purina Dog Food Diet - Here's Your Sign

The Purina Dog Food Diet – Here’s Your Sign

I have a Labrador retriever, and was buying a large bag of Purina at Wal-Mart and was in line to check out. The woman behind me asked if I had a dog? (Duh!)

On impulse, I told her no, I was starting The Purina Diet again. Although I probably shouldn't because I'd ended up in the hospital the last time, but I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms.

I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way it works is to load your pants pockets with Purina nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so I was going to try it again.

I have to mention here that practically everyone in line was now enthralled with my story, particularly a tall guy who was standing behind her.

Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care because the dog food poisoned me.

I told her no, I'd been sitting in the street licking my balls and a car hit me. I thought the guy standing behind her was going to have to have help as he almost choked laughing.

“…The Muslim-sensitivity training course at O'Hare is taught by Margaret Nydell, an Arabic professor at Georgetown University, home to a large Saudi-financed center on Islamic studies.”…

Isn’t that sweet. We now have Muslim sensitivity training at our nations’ busiest airport. By all means, let’s give the group of people that CAUSED all the problems at our airports and blew up almost 3000 of our citizens a special class that we can all attend so that we DON’T HURT THEIR little feelings.

“…"It's all about how Islam means peace and tolerance," he told WorldNetDaily. "We're told how to deal with Arabs and Muslims, that they are loving people and not terrorists. That jihad is struggle with sin and has nothing to do with violence."…”

Yeah, the struggle these folks have with sin (not violence) is the reason that I cannot have a drink of water in my bag now when I fly. Their jihad that has nothing to do with violence is why the twin towers are gone, and there is a huge hole in the Pentagon. Their peaceful nature is why the entire planet is on its edge… GIVE ME A BREAK!

SMILE - Give One Away Today

Author Unknown

A Smile costs nothing, but gives much.

It enriches those who receive, without making poorer those who give.

It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.

None is so rich or mighty that he can get along without it,and none is so poor, but that he can be made rich by it.

A Smile creates happiness in the home, fosters good will in business, and is the countersign of friendship.

It brings rest to the weary, cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad, and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.

Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is of no value to anyone, until it is given away.

Some people are too tired to give you a smile; Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.

John Mark Karr - Class A Nutjob!

Video Hosting - Upload Video - Video Sharing

This story gets stranger by the day! I think I might have to retract my apology in this story...or not...heck...I don't know! This is turning into a bad "he said - she said" story. But one thing for sure...this John Mark Karr dude is a first class NUTJOB. You guys know I'm a little radical, but my first opinions on him are these..."Bang Bang...we're done now...next..." Check out these exerpts from today's news coverage. You should really click the link and read the whole story...what a trip!

"...authorities asked Patsy Ramsey in late May — a month before she died of cancer — whether she would be willing to meet with the man who claims he killed her daughter..."

"...written correspondence Karr sent to Patsy Ramsey either in the form of e-mails or letters was never received by her because it was routed to someone else..."

"...Karr told investigators he drugged and sexually assaulted the girl before accidentally killing her..."

"...autopsy report found no evidence of drugs, saying her death was caused by strangulation after a beating that included a fractured skull..."

"...Karr gave a stunning confession to reporters Thailand this week, claiming he was with JonBenet when she died. But questions soon surfaced about his claims ..."

"..."It's clear to me that he's somewhat interested or maybe even obsessed by the case and the real question is whether he's inserting himself into it for some obscure psychological reason,"..."

"...Karr included one message in which the professor was asked to visit JonBenet's home in Boulder to read aloud an ode called "JonBenet, My Love."
"JonBenet, my love, my life. I love you and shall forever love you. I pray that you can hear my voice calling out to you from my darkness — this darkness that now separates us," ..."

"...Karr said he sympathized with Michael Jackson, who has been accused of molesting young boys.
"I will tell you that I can understand people like Michael Jackson and feel sympathy when he suffers as he has," Karr wrote..."

"...Karr's background includes an arrest in Petaluma, Calif., in 2001 on five misdemeanor counts of possession of child pornography, to which he pleaded not guilty..."

"...he admitted: "I was with JonBenet when she died. Her death was an accident."..."

"...Karr's "fascination with little girls"..."My peer group has not changed since I was a little boy, and girls were the people I was with always. Referring to them as a peer group is somewhat incorrect, but might also be the very definition of what they continue to be in my life."..."

Peter Piper Picks A Peck Of Pickled Peppers


AB5SY over at AMAZING FACTS wrote a piece that cracked me up... it was this joke...

Why Didn't I Think of That!
An old man in Mississippi is sitting on his front porch watching the sun rise. He sees the neighbor's kid walk by carrying something big under his arm. "Hey boy, whatcha got there?"

"Roll of chicken wire."

"What you gonna do with that?"

"Gonna catch some chickens."

"You damn fool! You can't catch chickens with chicken wire!" The boy just laughs and keeps walking. That evening at sunset, the boy comes walking by, dragging behind him the chicken wire with about 30 chickens caught in it.

The next morning, the old man is out watching the sun rise and he sees the boy walk by carrying something in his hand. "Hey boy, whatcha got there?"

"Roll of duct tape."

"What you gonna do with that?"

"Gonna catch me some ducks."

"You damn fool! You can't catch ducks with duct tape!" The boy just laughs and keeps walking.

That night around sunset the boy walks by, trailing behind him the unrolled roll of duct tape with about 35 ducks caught in it.
The next morning, the old man sees the boy walking by carrying what looks like a long reed with something fuzzy on the end. ''Hey boy, whatcha got there?"

"It's a pussy willow."

"Wait up...I'll get my hat."

Now, I jokingly commented on his blog that this was funny, and wasn't it funny too that there aren't any plants named for "a girls joke or fantasy"...

Lo and behold there is, and that's what I love about this crazy blogesphere... each day you can learn new "stuff", and it's good to be a "Stuff Knower"...

Arrest Made In Jon Benet Ramsey Murder


Video Hosting - Upload Video - Video Sharing

Wow…an arrest was made today in the 10 year old Jon Benet Ramsey murder case. I feel like I owe someone an apology. I was one of millions of Americans that really thought the deceased mother Patsy Ramsey, or possibly the brother had a hand in this murder. It was such a strange case, and there was always “something odd” about the whole thing.

It just goes to prove that public opinion can be very damning, and appearances are not always right. My condolences to the family, and my apologies for being close-minded and wrong. What a relief this must be, and hopefully an end to a long stretch of grief.

John Mark Karr, 42, was arrested in Bankok, Thailand where he was being held on unrelated sex charges. Sounds like this guy has continued to haunt innocent children or women for years. He gave officials details about the murder case that had never been released to the public, that only the killer would know.
