My I Q test results

I decided I would take a I,Q Test I have always wanted to do this but have always been worried about what my result would be. so here it is this is my result.

Free IQ Test
Free-IQTest.net - Free IQ Test

Well there it is, I have a I,Q of 128

give it a go see how you doo

as time draws near

just a little over two months now and I will be off to see my beautiful Jenn.
Already I can hardly contain my excitement.
I am now in the process of saving as much as I can to spend on my Jenn, everything els is set.

This is everything I work towards, all year round and the time I spend with my Jenn is the best time of my life. I always find that I worry a lot about the details of the trip.

I sometimes even dream about it, I have dreams where I get to the airport and I forgot something or I dream that I miss my flight, or I have even had dreams where I am the pilot of the plane.

I think I dream these things because I think so much about them all day. I am the kind of person who likes to keep on top of everything I do and things that concern me, I like to keep a constant check on the things that are important to me.

Jenn is the most important thing in the world to me and I worry a lot that something would go wrong with the bookings or a flight delay that would hamper my getting to be with her.

I'm sure that everything will go just fine and I will be with my Jenn really soon.

do I just worry to much about these things am I just been paranoid?

are we to pressured to buy?

I have noticed lately the amount of pressure that is placed on the customer to buy products.

Weather it be a chocolate bar or the latest games console it seems that there is a certain amount of pressure to buy these things that is placed on the customer by the store that they are in.
Even at home. there are none stop advertisements to buy products.

perhaps it's just me but I have noticed the increase in toy advertisements now that Christmas is only
123 days away or to make it sound more closer
3 months and 6 days away.

and it will only get worse as it gets closer.
and I even noticed that the advertisements fall around the same time as the kids are coming home from school.

Maybe that's why Christmas doesn't feel so much like Christmas anymore, because it's all about money.
all about how much the company can make. I remember years ago when all I wanted is my family. that hasn't really changed I still hold that value very close to my heart.
but the thing I would love more than anything is to be with My beautiful Jenn for Christmas,
that for me would be the best gift I could ever ask for

Life in the palm of my hand

I have never held a life in the the palm of my hand until today.
To have some one put their life in the palm of my hand.
to not know me and yet trust me with their life.
I ask you is there a better gift in the world than the gift of love and trust?

Even if it is from such a small life.
This is muffin mine and Jenn's new little adopted baby

Tell a joke Tuesday

Welcome to TELL A JOKE TUESDAY were you can tell your jokes or funny stories and make the world laugh.

Here are my jokes and funny stuff for this week.

A couple took their young son to the circus and when the elephants appeared, the boy seemed very intrigued by them.

"Mommy, what's that long thing on the elephant?" he asked.

"That's the elephant's trunk, dear," she replied.

"No, not that. What's that long thing that's hanging between the elephant's legs?" asked the boy.

Embarrassed, the mother replied, "Oh, it's nothing, son." She then left to get some hot dogs and sodas.

While she was gone, the young boy turned to his father and asked, "Daddy, what's that long thing hanging between the elephant's legs?"

"That's the elephant's penis, son," explained the father.

"Well, why did mommy say it was nothing when I asked her?" the boy asked.

Taking a deep breath, the father proudly replied, "I've spoiled that woman, son!"

Wayne;s severe storm watch update

TC Activity

seems that there has been a rather sudden change in the weather, Tropical storm Claudette appeared from nowhere and is now heading through Atlanta towards Tennessee. Ana is now on a course straight for Florida and then on through Georgia. Bill is now a Hurricane and I think that he is going to miss America completely and do a kind of a u turn and head back out to the Atlantic and die. I will update again on Wednesday

Wayne;s severe storm watch

I am at present tracking two tropical storms,
They are both out in the Atlantic ocean and are almost hurricane strength.

Tropical storm Ana is leading the way and gathering strength.
I think she may develop in to a Hurricane.
if she carried on on her present course she will hit hit Cuba by Wednesday and some time on Thursday will skim the Florida coast and head in to the Mexican gulf. I will give a update on Ana on Monday.

The second of the tropical storms Bill is following Ana and is as strong as Ana.
If Bill continues on his current path he will hit Florida or Carolina or Georgia roughly on Sunday of next week. I will update on Monday.

Photo Friday

Hi all and welcome to my Photo Friday for this week.

In England we have a tradition that on the 11th day on the 11th hour of the 11th month we remember those who fought and died for their country in the two major wars of this world and the smaller conflicts some of witch are still on going.
We remember the brave heroes and what they gave up for us. they gave their today so that we may have our tomorrow.

and how do we honor them? with a poppy, a small flower that grows wild
I thought about this a lot when I was walking and saw a field full of them.

I really do feel sorry for all the lives that have been lost, all those people we lost and all because the people in charge are to ignorant to try and come to some kind of understanding, they have no respect for life and it is the people who are left behind that pickup the pieces.

It is these people that give there lives and see horrors that no person should ever have to see . they are heroes but at what price and who will pay the price of putting their lives back together after the horror that they have witnessed.

they pay such a price so that we can stay safe at home and I am eternaly greatful to every single one of them who fight for our freedom.

I just wish that the wars had never happend in the first place I wish they could all come home. we are human beings and we are better than this. I'm sorry its just the way I feel

boss wars

A long long time a go in a galaxy far far away

record scratch,,,, back to reality

This is quite a complicated story so bear with me and I will try to tell it as best I can.
I have worked at my store now for nearly ten years and for as long as I have worked there my boss has worked there, she had worked there for years before I worked there, in fact you could say that this job is her life.

about two years ago our store was forced to re locate after the company had bought 29 new locations and rather than have our store so close to another store, they consolidated the two stores in to one.

We quickly settled in to the new location and my boss got to work sorting out all the paper work and loose ends from the new stores old files and business transactions. she finally got everything up to speed about a half a year ago. and that's when they lowed the boom.

She received word that the company thought that she would be be better placed at another store because she wasn't performing up to standards at the store she was at. This sent her in to a rage as you can imagine and for the next few weeks she became a nervous wreck.

soon after the full store emerges that the manager from that store is going to come and take over at our store. I had worked with that manager before and I remember him seeming to be a spoilt person and very stuck up, I got the impression he was the district managers favorite and he knew it but I would soon learn my lesson for been so judgemental.

My boss fought against the decision with every thing she had even going to a solicitor and citizens advice , but unfortunately for her she was denied against her fight to stay so then she appealed against that decision still to no avail.

she was bitter against what had happened to her and she was looking to put the blame on anything at this point, she even went as far as to put in a claim of sexual discrimination, claiming that it was just to dangerous for her to go home at such a late hour from so far away. also that the district manager wanted only men running his stores. Again it was no use the decision had been made and she would have to move.

she soon seemed to have a resentment for the new manager saying he would look for any excuse to give us warnings and get rid of us and that he was looking to hire all the staff from his old store and replace us with them. With what I remember oh him the idea of what she said was a strong possibility. I was worried that things were going to spiral out of control my boss who had hired me was falling from grace because of her resentment for what had happened to her. she was angry and I think if I was in the same position as she was then I wouldn't be to happy about it either, but I like to think that I would be more graceful about it, that I would rise above the situation buy going to the other store and doing the best I can and making such a impact on the store that everybody would see just how versatile I am at what I do and that I can do it well.

My boss has been on holiday for this last week, she leaves on the 17th of this month and for the first time the other day I got to speak to the new boss. I was amazed by the fact that he was not the stuck up all about me me me kind of person that I remember anymore, he was now a mature and responsible person who spoke to me like a person not a number and respected my opinion and had a good sense of humour. He also listened to my ideas and seemed to want to act on them we had a good talk and I must admit I like him. I think he will make a great boss, I hope anyway.

Now the main problem is that my boss is back from holiday and in a few hours from now I will be working with them both because we have to do a inventory and with him taking over next week he is going to be there, so it's going to be me my present boss and him all alone in the store together. while I'm sure that everything will be ok there is a part of me that is thinking it will be all out war and I will be stuck in the middle.

My beautiful Jenn said "Just keep your self to your self don't pick sides and just do your work"
I plan to do just that and I hope that nothing bad happens like a boss war.

I felt so bad

First let me say that over the past couple of week I have had a writers block and haven't really been able to think of things to write, well not that I have nothing to write, it was just I didn't really know how to write about it.

So today I am attempting to break out of my writers block and come out all guns blazing as the saying goes.

OOOOOOOk here goes.

As my title says I felt really bad the other day, I go to church as often as I can and the Elders always make me feel so welcome and I have become real good friends with them both so I suggested we go play football some time, I thought they could be more them selves and have some fun at the same time.

So we went to a local park, I took my Wilson NFL ball and the Elders brought their soccer ball. We started with playing some American Football we stood in a triangle and threw the ball to each other, every thing was going well.

We switched to the soccer ball. I have never been to good at soccer. you could say m aim when I kick the ball is not to good. I decided to make a net and I went as the goal keeper first and the rules was that the Elders would play and the first to score a go in as goal keeper so they could rest.

Elder Surban scored a goal so he became the goal keeper and I went out on the pitch with Elder Deberry.

Elder Surban kicked the ball on to the pitch and I got the ball I ran up to elder Deberry with the ball and made a excellent move I kicked the ball straight through his legs and shot at goal but elder Surban stoped the goal. he kicked the ball back on to the pitch and I ran and collected the ball and started back towards goal.

between me and the goal stood Elder Deberry. after moving so well last time I figured I could easily get past him again. but wait surly it would be more of a surprise if I shot for goal from where I was which was the middle of the pitch, Elder Deberry was stood about ten yards directly in front of me.

I aw a opening to the right of him just enough for me to boot the ball as hard as I could and possibly score a goal. I pulled my leg back and kicked the ball as hard as I could. I sent the ball hurtling.

but as soon as the ball left my foot I saw it's trajectory. To my horror it flew and hit Elder Deberry straight in the face, sending his head back and making him yell out in pain.
I instantly felt the worst guilt come over me. I ran up to him to see if he was ok, he was holding his nose.

after a minute he let go of his nose and I asked him if he was ok, he said yeah I'm fine. I apologised and said how bad I felt and he said "that's ok I know you didn't mean to".

I was so happy he was ok and later that evening the Elders came by my house and we all shared a pizza.

Things never to say to a cop 1. I can't reach my license unless you hold my beer. (OK in Texas)

2. Sorry, Officer, I didn't realize my radar detector wasn't plugged in.

3. Aren't you the guy from the Village People?

4. Hey, you must've been doin' about 125 mph to keep up with me. Good job!

5. Are You Andy or Barney?

6. I thought you had to be in relatively good physical condition to be a police officer.

7. You're not gonna check the trunk, are you?

8. I pay your salary!

9. Gee, Officer! That's terrific. The last officer only gave me a warning, too!

10. Do you know why you pulled me over? Okay, just so one of us does.

11. I was trying to keep up with traffic. Yes, I know there are no other cars around. That's how far ahead of me they are.

12. When the Officer says "Gee Son.. Your eyes look red, have you been drinking?" You probably shouldn't respond with,"Gee Officer your eyes look glazed, have you been eating doughnuts?"

Welcome to TELL A JOKE TUESDAY were you can tell your jokes or funny stories and make the world laugh.

Here are my jokes and funny stuff for this week.

A doctor and a lawyer were talking at a party.

Their conversation was constantly interrupted by people describing their ailments and asking the doctor for free medical advice.

After an hour of this, the exasperated doctor asked the lawyer, "What do you do to stop people from asking you for legal advice when you're out of the office?"

"I give it to them," replied the lawyer, "and then I send them a bill."

The doctor was shocked, but agreed to give it a try.

The next day, still feeling slightly guilty, the doctor prepared the bills.

When he went to place them in his mailbox, he found a bill from the lawyer

it's so wrong in my eyes

I was at work the other day and I must admit I was a bit shall we say angry at a customer.
The woman in question had three children, they were only young I would say the oldest one was about 9 years old.

She came to the counter and was asking my advice on games, She asked me about a game called Getaway. I said "it is a very violent game and deals with adult theme that's why it has a 18 rating, I would not recommend you get this game for them, in fact I would strongly recommend you don't!"

She said "is it worse than Grand theft auto?" I said " Yes I would say it is"
She then said that they play games like that all the time.
I could feel my self getting annoyed with her, what was she thinking?

I then said to her "This game is a 18 rated game which means it has violence and offensive language in it, it may also have sexual scenes in it also"
She gave me a look as if to say I don't really care.

by now the kids where pestering the lady and I could see her thinking I just want to get the game to keep them quiet.
I then said to her " I really think it would be unwise to get them this game, it would be like putting a 18 rated movie on and letting them watch it"

after all my pleading with the customer not to subject the kids to the game, she said "oh I'll get it for them, if they start swearing I'll just turn down the volume"

I said "but its visual also"
She said, "oh they will be fine they have seen worse"

there was nothing I could really do, I had to sell her the game but believe me I wanted so badly to refuse her.

and as she was leaving the store she turned to me and said "I am not a bad mother"

I don't think she was a bad mother, her kids seemed to love her. I just think that it's not right that there is no law saying you can't buy a game/ movie that's a 18 for someone younger than that age.
