Morning Sharon.

Gorgous day over here, may see a cloud or two. Will have a big party/BBQ over here around 4:00pm.

Had my daughter clean house Thursday to work off her debt, but got a little freshening up to do. Spent a couple of days in Dayton, need to unpack and put a few things away. I might even run the vacuum through the house.

Have great day!

Happy Fathers Day Big Brother, same to you JR.

Sharon you need Tony to advise you on the septic tank.
You know he is always flushing the Toilet, so he may be an expert:)

Happy Father's Day to you too, Tommy. That's pretty funny about the toilet flushing expert.

Doc, here's an e-mail I got from a girl this morning, about hurricanes. I thought it was hilarious and wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't true.

Subject: Hurricane Names

Well, it appears our African American friends have
found something else to be irked about. A black
congresswoman (this would be Sheila Jackson Lee, of
Houston) reportedly complained that the names of
hurricanes are all Caucasian-sounding names.

She would prefer some names that reflect
African-American culture such as Chamiqua, Woeisha,
and Jamal.
I can hear it now: A weatherman in Houston saying ...

"Wordup, Muthas! Herr-i-cane Chamiqua be headin' fo'
Galveston like Leroy on a crotch rocket! Bitch be a
category fo'! So, turn off dem chitlins, grab yo'
chirren, leave yo crib, and head fo' de nearest FEMA
office fo yo FREE shit!"

Happy Daddy Day boys.

Maybe T came over and flushed my toilets too much. You know, all the extra water going into the tank can really mess it up.

Doc, it'll probably take a few weeks for people to realize you're open on Sunday.

If you've got time to kill you can go over to look at my hosting pkg. and see how it compares with yours. I really think yours offers way more stuff for the same money.

I put our Business Hours on the website.. Never thought about this being a holiday though..

Don't look like much is included with your hosting plan.. Check out the "Web Hosting Panel Live Demo"

So if I go to and do the 9.99 plan can we build my website and then pull down my old one? While it doesn't do much it still does a little.

What does the shopping cart shipping stuff look like? Does it auto pull stuff by weight or do I have to do a shipping table. I still haven't figure out the international rates but I have the US ones. That whole thing has always been really complicated but I'm tired of calculating shipping for every order and for every question. It would be nice if people could just load their cart and see what the shipping is before they commit to buying it.

Lately, marketworks has been really messed up for me. It's not talking to ebay half the time. All my capacitor auctions are set up to redirect to MW but they aren't. The shipping tables in MW have been a mess too. I put in one thing and end up with the c ustomers being billed for something else. Like that one I had to suck up while you were here. I pay $30 a month for MW and I don't like it at all. I feel like I pay a lot for nothing. I'm sure some of it is me. I just don't have the time to dedicate to figuring out the latest changes they make.

What I really want is a place I can pull customers off my ebay auctions and send them to my website. Then streamline the processing of orders. Right now, when I ship an order I have to deal with it in ebay, mw, Quickbooks and my mailing program. QB does my fedEx stuff which is really nice. I can also use their merchant account which will process the card right off the invoice. I'd really like to have a my postal done with less steps as it's a totally separate program and I have to cut and paste the info in. Costs me something like $15 a month for that. I like it though cause it saves stuff so my repeat customers are still in there and I just have to pick the shipping method. The USPS site I have to reenter stuff every time.

Yeah, I'm asking a lot. Time is money for me. I have little time and I spend so much time messing with the bullshit that I don't have time to do more stuff. I'd really like to get things so I'm only dealing with my orders for about 1 hr a night. I like having time to sit on my porch and have my glass of wine but some nights I finish work and then work on the business and still never get everyting I want done.

Tommy, that hosting co. has an SSL plan that's something like $60 per year on top of the hosting cost.

Sharon, You can't set up another site without moving the domain to a new host.

You can however upload the same files to the root directory of the new host, then work on the new platform in another folder. When it is done you just move it to the root.

Here is the OSCommerence Store included with's hosting plan. Might work for your needs. It supports PayPal and a Merchant account.

Thought I would share something, it's either funny or disgusting.

You all know I work in the nuclear industry and get all dressed up in "anti-contamination" clothing and most of the time have to wear respriatory protection. For that respiratory protection, we wear a PAPR (powered air purifying respirator). It is a boxed fan with a rechargable battery, two filter cartridges, kind varies for type of protection, and a flexible hose that goes to a mask or hood, mostly hoods.

As we were in the radiological zone, one of our laborers, Steve, a big guy, rips a humongous stinking fart. Now there is this one girl in her early 30's, a manager, right behind Steve. Well her PAPR sucked this big stinking fart and blew it right in her hood. She started wretching and gagging, Steve turned around apologized. She was still gagging and needed to go somewhere to get fresh air and maybe blow her lunch. She took off running to the exit, gagging the whole time. We didn't follow her, because we were laughing our asses off. There was an attendent there to help her get her PAPR off and when she did, she hurled in the waste container, which now became "potentially" contaminated vomit.

The filters were for particulates (radiological), not vapors. It was hilarious!

That's funny JR. Bet she didn't think it was. That must have been a really bad one to make her puke. I sometimes wonder why I want a man around. They can be so gross.

Sharon, it was an accident and it was bad, he didn't know she was behind him. Now if you were in a radiological zone, all dressed up, hot and sweaty, uncomfortable, and gotta rip one. There is no way you're gonna go undress and get redressed just to go rip one off.

I've been in radiological zones where people needed to get out to use the bathroom and since it takes time to get undressed and surveyed, some don't make it to the bathroom. Some areas, we are required to wear double clothes or "moon" suits and 60 minute bottles of air. One hopes they don't need a reason to exit early and fast. Same goes for working in and around chemical weapons, which I no longer do.

Us men gross? Heard plenty of women rip some pretty volitile farts that would stop a race horse in it's tracks. You can't tell me that women don't fart, if they didn't pressure would build up and they would explode.

JR, That is a riot.. Would have made a great video! 8)

It was hilarious, just had to be there to see it. I've worked all over the country, mainly at nuclear plants, construction and operating, not much I haven't seen. So it takes something out of the ordinary to get my attention. I'd never seen this before. But I have many stories from my travels, some involved me.

Another favorite of mine is the black guy who stuck his dick in the vacuum cleaner hose, a co-worker and me catching him in the act. The reaction from my co-worker screaming and hollering about his vacuum being abused was hilarious also.

The cats brought a bat in the house tonight. Should of kept the bat to check to see if it was sick. Cats were washed and isolated, go to vet in the morning. May have to have my cats isolated at the vets for 10 days, because of saliva from the bat may have gotten on them.

Damn cats!

You shoulda saved that bat. Woulda taken a lot less time to determine if it was sick. Hope your kitties are ok.

Wow that gives a whole new meaning to a blow job. I would think a guy would be afraid to stick it into an industrial vacuum. Might suck it off literally..

This morning, took my cats to the vet and got them all booster shots. They said there shouldn't a problem. Then this evening, my cat brought the bat in the house again. This time, I got a broom from WalMart and some sticky fly paper. Put the fly paper on the broom, put the broom against the curtains and bat, the bat stuck to the fly paper, and then put it in a box. Speaking with my vet and another vet, should still not be any problems.

I did take the bat to another vet, which will check it. They've checked about 8 bats this year for rabies, none found to date and none found the year before. The bat will be put down, because of it will be ripped apart when they remove it from the fly paper.

Not a very human thing to put the bat through that, but I don't want me, the cats, or anyone else getting rabies.

I wonder if the bat had a nesting place close to the ground, that's why my orange cat, Sherbert, kept getting it. He always brings me live gifts of birds and mice, now including bats.

Ever wake up and see a bird flying in circles above your bed? I have several times thanks to my cat.

Gifts from my cat are always dead and often in pieces. She used to eat everything but the head. That she'd leave on the doorstep.

Glad you got the bat though. So much easier to check him than the cats.

Even if it's unlikely your cats could get sick from it the health dept needs to know if bats in your area are infected. Several years back some guy died from the plague because they hadn't issued an alert. Turned out it was a bad year for rodents with plague fleas. I think about 6 other people got sick but by that time there'd been news info and they got treatment before getting really sick.
