Good Morning my fellow Speakies and hoping you are have a good day so far. Nice weather here in Florida and hoping that most of you are enjoying a more pleasant day. If you live in those top Northern states, hope the skiing is great. January has really flown by and soon February will be knocking on our door. Let's see what is happening for this date.
The flower for January is the Carnation and yes I did get Roe a vase of carnations to celebrate the month. Garnet is the gemstone for January meaning constancy. It is for both my Guys and Dolls, a regular person, a brick, a cornerstone that will not waiver so January Speakies be proud of this stone and your character traits.
INSANE ANSWERING MACHINE MESSAGES - First of all I love insane machine messages, I do not like all those who say, press 1 to 10 for any help. Then you get some more numbers to choose from. You want jobs in America, hire personnel that will answer when the phone rings instead of pushing numbers or being connected to a foreign nation. Big corporations saving money to pay their top executives and shareholders. Now to the lighter side of this. Roe and I had several funny messages. One is when we argued who has the phone and after we said we are not at home, came those words leave a message.
A few birthdays today so let's pay homage to:
1838 - Chief Osceola, head of the Seminole Tribe in Florida, dies in prison. The U.S. should be ashamed of what they did to the tribe nations of this country and its great leaders.
1894 - Boris III, Tsar of Bulgaria, sounds like a name to put fear in every one's heart living there at that time.
1931 - Actor Gene Hackman, loved him in all his movies, the Poseidon Adventure, Bird Cage, Hoosiers, Unforgiven and No Way Out just to name a few. Happy B'Day Gene.
1941 - Dick Cheney, the butt head who shot a fellow gun shooter and also at his age received a heart transplant. Regular people at his age would be denied the procedure. It's fun to be a Repuke Dick.
Have a great day Guys and Dolls and remember to be kind to each other.
