“I’ve got so much to tell everyone, but first, let’s do something very important!! May 8, 2018, in Indiana-boss lady’s state, GO VOTE in the PRIMARY!!”

“If you vote tomorrow let me know and I’ll work up a present for you.” ūüėȬ†¬†

“I’ll get back on topic by Wednesday morning. Up first will be the Transformer’s movies, did you know that there are five of them? Seriously, yes. Hopefully, by now, everyone has seen them so I don’t accidentally spoil anything!”

 

***In most states, you have to vote in the primary in the Spring to be able to vote in November on the general election ticket!! It’s really important this year to get out there and VOTE!! Vote as if your life depends on it, because with these idiots in office,¬† 99% of the time, it does!!!¬†If you haven’t been paying attention, then you must be deaf, dumb and blind!¬†

Someone has lost all her marbles… and ABC REALLY? REALLY!!!

10 Comments

Remember, once upon a time, I said I’m not a political blog. This entry is skirting that line…

ABC/Disney has already signed for the second season of the roseanne barr show.

FYI, I don’t capitalize¬†people’s names that I have no respect for, so now you know why some names are lowercased!

ABC/Disney are you sure about this, let’s see you’ve had a few issues this year:

And unless you’ve been living in a bubble, Disney Bought Fox for hold on, Fifty-two Billion!!

And I think that’s when they decided to hold onto their profits and NOT Give to their employees! I’m sorry-WHAT! and DISNEY IS CONSIDERED TO BE FAMILY FRIENDLY?!?! Where? To whose family? Surely, not their employees!!!

So ABC/Disney do you really want roseanne barr who is causing a lot of fuss and not making any sense on Twitter. Have you heard about her latest antics with the trump?!?¬† “There is a difference, however, in the way they have been brought before America. American voters chose Trump; ABC chose Roseanne Barr.” from the article What ‘roseanne’ better worry about. And in my mind, Disney should too!!! They are allowing a bigot who has been attacking a minor, David Hogg on Twitter, even insinuating that he has been giving the “Hitler salute.” View her twitter page, OH WAIT, those tweets have been deleted! But the internet always has backups! From BuzzFeed News, roseanne barr Deleted A Tweet Accusing A Parkland Survivor Of Giving A Nazi Salute.¬† In the body of the article, there is the first tweet, that roseanne replied to a David Hogg conspiracy theorist who tagged the actual boy but then ABC made her delete it. Don’t worry, here’s a screenshot: https://t.co/yftDrSdq6b

OH and let’s not forget the love fest between her and the traitor in OUR WHITE HOUSE, dumpity¬†trump! She gushes¬†all over him and it’s disgusting, like her other twitter¬†rhetoric!

So maybe ABC/Disney is NO LONGER the Family Channel, I thought it was! 

Because any company that is still insane enough to support the traitor in OUR WHITE HOUSE! well, I don’t support people that support traitors and treasonous behavior! I’m a Disabled Veteran and I swore an oath to defend our country from enemies both foreign and domestic and guess what? We have both with one person! dumpity¬†trump!

I don’t want to boycott ABC/Disney, as obviously, their employees need the money- for food and shelter!! But they are pissing me off! What a slap to veterans! And does anyone remember this? Despicable and Deplorable behavior! ***Warning do not watch if you’re easily offended, this will upset you! ***Warning do not watch if you can’t handle caterwauling- yes, my cat’s sound better than this. The raccoon outside sounds better than this!¬† Finally, DO NOT WATCH IF YOU’RE A VETERAN!! Guaranteed to piss you off!¬†

At this point, ABC/DISNEY I just don’t know about you! I know where we’re not going on our 20th Anniversary Next year! I hear Universal has an awesome theme park as well, and they pay their employees better wages, so they’re not homeless and hungry!! It’s time to clean up your act, Mickey!! Did Disney forget their proud heritage of going against dictators and the like? You need to figure out where to cut your costs and give the benefits to your employees! Have you never heard, a happy employee equals a productive employee!! And with a happy and productive employee, you have happier clientele, which in turns does what? Makes your business grow! More people will come through the doors! At this point, I’m not sure this is the happiest place on Earth anymore!! That makes me sad!!

ps- you know I’m pissed off enough to write this blog entry!! Okay, that’s how upset I am!! And also really, really saddened that the place I equaled with happy people is not that! That they have people that can’t afford to live in a house or apartment and they have people that go hungry, and I know they have food left over at the end of the day! Even McDonald’s feeds their employees! I can’t imagine how they feel knowing one of their employees died on their property, or maybe- sadly they really don’t care, you know like trump! ūüė¶ great now I’ve depressed myself!

 

Why I’ll keep Tumblr too!! Ooooh Pretty Pix!

WOW! I just received this email from Tumblr, I wonder if WordPress will be doing a similar check of accounts!! 

 

As part of our commitment to transparency, we want you to know that we uncovered and terminated 84 accounts linked to Internet Research Agency or IRA (a group closely tied to the Russian government) posing as members of the Tumblr community.

The IRA engages in electronic disinformation and propaganda campaigns around the world using phony social media accounts. When we uncovered these accounts, we notified law enforcement, terminated the accounts, and deleted their original posts.

While investigating their activity on Tumblr, we discovered that you either followed one of these accounts linked to the IRA, or liked or reblogged one of their posts:

  • 1-800-gloup
  • bellaxiao¬†previously known as: blogmadworldlove
  • bellygangstaboo
  • cartnsncreal¬†previously known as: feelmydragonballs
  • coldfirefan
  • destinyrush¬†previously known as: delightfullyghostlysong
  • honestlyyoungpersona

  • thingstolovefor¬†previously known as: the-inner-mirror

You aren’t in trouble and don’t need to take any action if you don’t want to. We deleted the accounts but decided to leave up any reblog chains so that you can curate your own Tumblr to reflect your own personal views and perspectives.

Democracy requires transparency and an informed electorate and we take our disclosure responsibility very seriously. We’ll be aggressively watching for disinformation campaigns in the future, take the appropriate action, and make sure you know about it.

I don’t recognize any of the blogs listed, but I could’ve reblogged from someone who had reblogged from one of them. I’m seriously¬†only there for the pretty pix and submitting my kitties to the Kitty Blog! lol

I mean Hello! Look at this hair!

This is where I got my Oilslick color design from: OhKristinaYes

I will be going through my Tumblr and cleaning it up again! I had to delete a lot of stuff because of issues with a co-writer in the past! Word of advice: if you have a co-writer have them sign a contract!! Yep!

Copyrighted Images! OMG!!! Learn the Rules, KID!

As an artist, I don’t always put a huge C on my work, but Shutterstock, Dreamstime, Getty Images and other artist’s do!!!

I would NOT want to be the individual that is using Shutterstock, Dreamstime and Getty Images WITHOUT THEIR PERMISSION!!!

Which I just saw on a blog!! I’m facepalming while I’m thinking, do I need to start doing overlays on my work again?? I mean this person doesn’t obviously care or doesn’t know the law about copyrighted images!!!

Just because you see it on the internet doesn’t mean it’s yours to use!!!
 ***Unless there are rules of usage on the website.

Those images I color and post from various coloring page sites, yep, they have those rules- those images are for personal use and no using to profit from. I’m coloring and sharing what I colored, I’m not asking for money!

The other images I share that I’ve colored, I have the ARTIST’s permission to do so!!! As an artist, I am very good at ensuring I have or use a copyrighted item with permission or follow the site’s rules. But to use an obviously Copyrighted item, I mean here from his entry! I won’t list his name or the name of his blog, but let’s see if he notices this work!!!

screen capped directly from his page- I’m NOT Violating this person’s copyright, I’m showing this as an example of someone who is!! If you need his site, let me know and I will share it with you!!! He does this a LOT! ***It’s illegal!!!!!¬† Again I will share his site so that you can check to see if YOUR images are being used WITHOUT YOUR PERMISSION!!!!! I have bookmarked him and am trying to figure out how to report him!!!¬†

Muta, where are you?

For those that don’t know, I’ve been trying to save/adopt another kitty as a companion for JiJi and the majority of shelters in Indiana are over capacity.¬†But the ones I’ve called are not giving a break to ppl to adopt pets.

And then we have my Hometown, MUNCIE, which is!!

This Wednesday is $1.00 Adoption Day!

Most places don’t advertise pets as Presents for the holidays, but Muncie is, they don’t want these beautiful animals killed! Which is what could happen! So want a new friend, companion, furry family member. They will be open on Wednesday from 8-noon and then 1-5:30 pm. All pets are spayed/neutered!

Patrick is still not sure, he’s open to accepting donations for kitty food and litter! The most expensive items for pet owners. He has told me that PetSmart is having Black Friday deals now, so if they offer gift cards, that would be awesome to receive.

He also told me he gets to name the new kitty, and we’d like another black kitty like JiJi but whichever kitty chooses me, is who I’ll adopt, only one!!! Otherwise, I’d go broke saving as many as possible and get in legal trouble for hoarding cats. ūüėČ Not to mention, marital issues for bringing home a carload of kitties! Patrick would have Kittens! LOL ūüėÄ

 

Muncie Animal Shelter is also pretty cool and sneaky!

They have had a special promotion to have people come in and walk and get to know the puppies.

LOL ūüėÄ

 

Patrick’s already picked out the name, and some ppl will get it. Hint: Studio Ghibli¬†

Yay! and a review of online vs actual going into a tech shop-buyer beware!

2 Comments

First, WOOOOHOOOOO my baby aka my brain aka my iPhone is home and works Great! It was the battery that had died.

And now unto my research on finding a place to take her to be fixed!

I am a fan of researching before wasting gas and money! So I did a lot of research on batteries plus they looked to be a good choice. They have a store that is nearby, in Anderson, Indiana and they also mentioned store hours and a tech on site to do the repairs in a timely matter. I had Patrick convinced that we should go there and that this is NOT a fly-by-night business.

Cue the day we decided to go-Friday afternoon after my VA appt. It was on the way home, and OMG! It looked like a fly-by-night business, starting with the person that was working¬†and did NOT inspire confidence with me or Patrick. “We’re closed!” so why is the door unlocked? “UH! There’s no tech here!” that’s not what the customer service on the phone just told me? “UH! He lied!” Okay, we are outta of here! the only positive is he told us to go to a competitor.

Which we did!

And hooray for MDTEKK¬†also local in Anderson, Indiana with other locations in Muncie! However, we were in Anderson and woohooo! The tech person was friendly, courteous, knowledgeable and did I mention friendly? She also discussed with me that my diagnosis was probably correct and they offer Military discounts!! She informed that they had batteries ordered for my phone and the repair should be done by Wednesday this week. That was on Friday afternoon. Imagine my surprise when on Saturday I woke up and Patrick handed me my phone, “Your baby is repaired and working, nothing was lost!” OMG, less than 24 hours later and under $50!¬†So if you need a phone, laptop, or other electronic device fixed and you live locally here in Indiana, PLEASE go support their business! Professional, courteous, knowledgeable, fast service and most definitely, NOT A FLY-BY-NIGHT operation! ***Check the website for your local stores!

Sorry Batteries Plus you should hire ppl that want to work, and your prices online are not what I heard from your competitor! Patrick mentioned later that maybe the guy was robbing the place and we caught him? I don’t know, but we aren’t going to them again! ¬†On the other hand, Please do support MDTEKK!!! They will tell you upfront, how much and how long and they will call if there are any discrepancies on the above! I’ll be taking my desktop back there as she is still not working after the last time I went to a friend’s recommended tech shop! Patrick has taken his laptop in and I’ll let ya’ll know how it comes out! They are repairing the screen and the keyboard. So I’ll let ya’ll know the price, repair job and time frame!

Point to the story, no matter how much researching you do online, and place phone calls, sometimes going into the actual store and talking to the people that work there, is what inspires confidence in a job! And Batteries Plus your person DID NOT inspire any confidence in me and that’s why I’m doing this review to protect others! Yep!
