Jul. 12th, 2008 10:26 am Put A New Face In Congress This Fall-Florida Congressional 12th District-Doug Tudor

DOUG TUDOR FOR U.S. CONGRESS

FLORIDA'S 12TH DISTRICT





I am sending this to all my friends that lived in and around the Tampa/Brandon/Lakeland area. I have a friend whose uncle, Doug Tudor is running for congress in District 12. While this is not my congressional district I really like what Mr. Tudor has to say and what he stands for. Americans need better representation as too many millionaires think they can actually relate to and represent the average citizen. Let's give regular, thinking people a chance to represent us.




Give Mr. Tudor a look www.teamtudor.org and see what you think for yourself. Again while Mr. Tudor is not in my congressional district I would like to see him succeed and I have chosen to support him in his to the U.S. House of Representatives. If you like what he has to say then pass his information along to your friends and maybe even chose to show your support with a donation, I did. You can join what is called "Ten for Tudor." Simply put, please draft a short email asking nine of your friends to consider supporting his candidacy for the U.S. House of Representatives and ask your friends to go to either ActBlue to donate online or if you would like to make a contribution by mail or fax, please click here to download a printable contribution form. If you or your friends have any questions, please ask them to call or email Mr. Tudor.

Nov. 8th, 2007 02:52 am Sometimes we just need to be reminded!

A well-known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20.00 bill. In the room of 200, he asked, "Who would like this $20 bill?"

Hands started going up. 

He said, "I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this.  He proceeded to crumple up the $20 dollar bill. 

He then asked, "Who still wants it?" 

Still the hands were up in the air. 

Well, he replied, "What if I do this?" 

And he dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. 

He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty. "Now, who still wants it?" 

Still the hands went into the air. 

My friends, we have all learned a very valuable lesson. 
No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did  not decrease in value.  It was still worth $20. 

Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way.   We feel as though we are worthless.  But no matter what has happened or
what will happen, you will never lose your value. 

Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to those who DO LOVE you.
The worth of our lives comes not in what we do or who we know, but by WHO WE ARE.

You are special - Don't EVER forget it."

Sep. 4th, 2007 05:45 pm Happy Birthday Daddy!

 

Today is your birthday
without candles and cake.
And since you are not with us,
we will not celebrate.
We cannot send you a birthday card,
your hands we cannot touch.
So we ask God to give a message
to the one we love so much.
And grant us one wish
and make it come true.
To have His choir of Angels sing
Happy Birthday to you.

Aug. 31st, 2007 05:43 pm I Miss You So Much Daddy~John Kevin~9/4/23-9/3/2001

We do not need a special day to bring
you to our minds.
The days we do not think of you
are very hard to find.
Each morning when we awake we
know that you are gone.
And no one knows the heartache
as we try to carry on.
Our hearts still ache with sadness
and secret tears still flow.
What it meant to lose you
no one will ever know.
Our thoughts are always with you,
your place no one can fill.
In life we loved you dearly;
in death we love you still.

1. Leave me a casual comment of no particular significance, like a lyric to your current favorite song, or your favorite kind of sandwich, maybe your favorite game. Any remark, meaningless or not.
2. I will respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better.
3. Update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. Include this explanation and offer to ask someone else in your own post.
5. When others respond with a desultory comment, you will ask them five questions.

1. Are all of your children angels or something? How do you keep from going insane?? ;D
NO MY CHILDREN ARE NOT ANGELS BUT THEY ARE IN GENERAL GOOD KIDS.  TRUST ME I HAVE MY DAYS WHERE I WANT TO RUN AS FAR AND AS FAST AS I CAN.  LOL!!  I GUESS I HAVE BEEN BLESSED TO HAVE A HUSBAND THAT IS VERY HANDS ON WHEN IT COMES TO HELPING OUT.

Aug. 28th, 2007 09:33 pm Why Do People Have to Hate?

Why Do People Have to Hate?
Current mood: pissed off
Category: Life

 

Why do they? I have a dear friend, a best friend that is dealing with someone that is a hater.  This person is such a hater that they have to hide behind a false name. What I don't get is why they have to start shit with people. Why can't the just mind there own business? Why do people feel the need to have an opinion when it was not ask? I guess they are just so unhappy with their life that they want to bring other down with them.   In this case my friend was minding her business and this hater just starting saying things mean uncalled for things. She is posting things on websites, sending mean text messages and sending the most hurtful emails. My friend has a passion for things in life and with that passion she gives 150% of herself. She enjoys life to the fullest but when someone comes in and tries to squash you time and time again you start to lose that passion.  Again why do people have to do this? Because of people like this my friend finds to hard to trust in anyone or anything these days. If you don't like her passion for a person, place or things don't be a hater. You have your right to your opinion but keep it to yourself unless asked. 
 
 
To My Dear Friend,
Don't be sorry that you got me involved because you didn't I offered. As I have told you I am here for you no matter what, that is what a true friend will do. I wish I could take some of the hurtful things that were said to you and carry them on my shoulders. Just know that there are people out there that know the real you, the true you and love you for it. As you say fuck the haters and just know that karma is a bitch and they will get there due all in good time.
Don't let these people take the love and passion you have away. Know that a certain someone feels that same feeling that you do. Don't let the doubt come over you. People know when they have a special connection and that is what you two have.
I love you my BFFL.

Jun. 23rd, 2007 12:16 pm The One's You Love Can Hurts You So Much

Why is it that the one's you love tend to hurt you the most? I have given so much of myself to this person. My heart, soul, mind and body only have it broken and battered. And what hurts even more is that I am at a point in my life where I truly need this person and they have left me. This person was a mentor and friend and someone I respected and now I don't know what they are to me. There was a time when the phone calls would come often, along with letters and emails and visits, now I feel I have to beg to get that, why, what has changed? The last time we were really connected was 2 years ago when I was sick and getting ready to have surgery but after the surgery they slowly pulled away. Why? Why then when I need them? I miss this person so much in my daily life that it hurts. I have told them time and time again how important they are to me and how I value their time and their opinion. I guess there is not too much more I can do. I guess this person was only to be with me till a certain point in my life. 
 
I hope you know how much I miss you and how important you are. My heart, mind and soul will always be open to welcome you back, if you should chose so.

May. 7th, 2007 07:50 am 9 Things I Hate About Everyone

 

9 Things I Hate About Everyone

 


1.  People who point at their wrist while asking for the time.  I know where my watch is pal, where the hell is yours? Do I point at my crotch when I ask where the toilet is?


2.  People who are willing to get off their ass to search the entire room for the T.V. remote because they refuse to walk to the T.V. and change the channel manually.


3.  When people say "Oh you just want to have your cake and eat it too". Damn right! What good is cake if you can't eat it?  

 

4.  When people say "It's always the last place you look". Of course it is. Why the hell would you keep looking after you've found it?  Do people do this?  Who and where are they?  Gonna Kick their asses!

 

5.  When people say while watching a film "Did you see that?" No Loser, I paid $12 to come to the cinema and stare at the damn floor.

 

6.  People who ask "Can I ask you a question?"  Didn't really give me a choice there, did ya sunshine?

7. When something is "new and improved",  which is it? If it's new, then there has never been anything before it. If it's an improvement, then there must have been something before it, couldn't be new.


8.  When people say "Life is short". What the hell?  Life is the longest damn thing anyone ever does!! What can you do that's longer?


9.  When you are waiting for the bus and someone asks "Has the bus come yet?" If the bus came would I be standing here, dumbass?
