The Zombie Bees Are Here

Zombie Bees

Well it’s finally happened.  The Zombie Bees are here and they are now starting to invade the east coast of the U.S.  First there were the Zombie Ants which I’m pretty sure I have already blogged about in the past now this.  I’m telling you the zombie virus is pressing hard to make an explosive takeover and when it does it won’t be pretty.

The zombie bee was first seen in 2008 and then in Nov of last year was spotted in a bee keepers hive in Vermont.  What happens is a fly called Apocephalus borealis attaches itself to the bee and injects its eggs, which grow inside the bee.  Scientists believe it causes neurological damage resulting in erratic, jerky movement and night activity, “like a zombie,”

It is said that it would be a “game changer” if these flies could hatch from dead bees and complete their life cycle inside the hive.  it would be another nail in the coffin for honeybees in the northern hemisphere”  Personally I don’t see this as a bad thing, I don’t like bees they are demons and should be exterminated anyway but this is just another example in a long line of examples that the zombie apocalypse is upon us.

My very best friend in the world has recently been diagnosed with Colon Cancer.  She is just such a wonderful person and she doesn’t deserve this.  She is already a two time survivor of Cancer and now she’s been hit again.  Why?  She’s amazing, and loving and she does so much for others.  She doesn’t smoke, she tries to healthy, she exercises and she honestly truly loves life.  She is a single mother of 3 wonderful kids and she is doing it all on her own.  For me she is the perfect example of what a true Christian should be.  Her faith is never wavering, her love of God shines through.  She doesn’t judge others and she doesn’t go around telling people that what they believe or do or how they live their lives is wrong because they don’t believe like she does.  Forgiving is a great word…

I Won’t Leave You Tonight

I Won’t Leave You Tonight

By Robert M. Nelson II

 

I’d walk straight through the depths of Hell

Fires so hot my skin will melt

Fall ten stories from the sky

Then take a knife to both my eyes

 

I use this mirror as my guide

To face the demons that are inside

Let the worms eat away my brain

Until they say I’ve gone insane

Then tear the flesh from my bones

I’d do this all so you will know

 

I’m not leaving you tonight

You’re all I want in my life

I’ll endure every pain of every kind

Just to show I won’t leave you tonight

 

Endure the heat of seven suns

Swallow acid for you my love

So you will know with all my might

I’m not leaving you tonight

 

I’m not leaving you tonight

You’re all I want in my life

I’ll endure every pain of every kind

Just to show I won’t leave you tonight

 

Is It Time To Give Up?

Held On

I’ve been fighting a battle for several years now, my wife for even longer.  Sometimes you want to give up and other times you don’t.  It’s difficult when you try so hard to help someone to make the right choices but instead they don’t listen to your wisdom, your experience, basically don’t want your help.  We all, have this need to be there for our loved ones, to support them, to shield them from the failures you know will come from making the wrong choices.  When the person your trying to help continues to refuse to listen, you find yourself asking, “Is it time to give up?”

Well I’ve asked this question more than once and everytime my heart has said no.  But I believe we all hit a point when you can do no more until they ask you.  So I ask again “Is it time to give up?”  Well I still believe the answer is no.  What I have realized though, that sometimes, you can’t keep the one your trying to help from failing.  That being there for them is why they can’t succeed.  I think there comes a time where you have to stop helping.  Your not giving up, your just letting them do it themselves.  There comes a time when that loved one has to fail, on their own, in order to learn how to succeed.  If your not there to catch them, eventually they will learn they can’t do it themselves, and if your lucky, will realize they need your help after all.  You have to fail in order to learn how to succeed.

No one goes through life making all the right choices, never getting it wrong.  We all fall short sometimes, we all make the wrong choices on occasion.  What is important is that moment when we realize what the right choices are.  Sometimes it takes a failure to show us how to succeed.  Some, it takes many.  I believe that time has come, to let that loved one make their own choices, even though I know they won’t always make the right ones.  If that loved one fails enough without us being their safety net, eventually they will see the road to success and hopefully realize we were only trying to help all along and just maybe make the choice on their own for our help.  I believe it is that time for us to drop the safety net, never give up hope, and let this person make their own choices, even if they are the wrong ones.  Let this person know you will always be there to help if they ask for it but your not going to catch them when they fall until they do ask for that help.  I think after enough falls, this person will finally see how to stand up, learn the right choices to make to succeed and that you can’t always do it alone, that they can ask for help.

It Was Time To Trade Up

PT Cruiser

Back in 2010 I bought a used 2005 PT Cruiser Convertable.  Despite all the problems I had with this car, I still really liked it, especially driving during the summer with the top down.  This was my first convertable I ever had and it was awesome.  Like I said though it had a lot of problems and I sunk a lot of money into it.  Between 2010 and 29 Dec 2013, I had 18 flat tires (every little pot hole would give it flats), I replaced 3 rims ($154 each), had to get the AC fixed, replace the turbo, replace the catalitic converter, have the headlights cleaned cause they constantly fogged up, and it still had a proble with the windshield washers.  While driving back from taking my kids back to Florida, I was driving through South Carolina in the rain.  I was doing 10mph under the speed limit, driving on the inside passing lane down I95 when I hit a puddle of water and it hydroplaned into the ditch.  Problem here is the grass and mud made it bolt like a rocket.  Nothing I did would make it stop and I hit the rebarb fencing in the middle of the ditch.  I lost the front bumber, dented the front corner panel making opening the car door difficult, busted out the drivers side head light, and who knows what internal damage was done.  It cost me $275 just to get towed out of the ditch and a ticket for not driving at the appropriate speed for the weather (even though I was doing under the limit).  The cop said if you couldn’t break before going in the ditch then he had to ticket me (BS!  I was hydroplaning!!!)

So the insurance company took my car and on 3 Jan 2014 said it was considered totaled.  I had 2 days of rental which they paid but not all.  I still had $75 I had to pay, $53 for the two days and $25 for the insurance coverage.  I had a $500 deductable which after subtracting, what the insurance was paying out was still less than what was owed on the car.  Thankfully I had GAP insurance and that covers the rest.

So Saturday, 4 Jan 2014, we went to the dealership to find a new car.  Which we did, with only about $320 down we were able to get a 2012 White Dodge Avenger.  I have to say this is a sweet car.  It’s easy driving, good on gas, looks great, and I can actually see the road with non-fogged headlights.  It does get pushed around with the wind a little which I found out tonight driving to work in 30mph winds but it was still easy to handle.  I will miss my drop-top but hopefully some day in the future I’ll be able to afford a new convertable of some kind.  Below is a picture of what the new car looks like.  Lets hope this one has less problems then the last car did.

Getting Ready For 2014

Resolutions

Happy New Year everyone.  It’s that time of year again when we start looking at our past year, the ups and the downs, our resolutions for the previous year (if you made any) and whether or not we completed our resolutions or not so we can make new one’s all over again.  Now I almost didn’t do this blog and for several reasons.  I had been mulling it over for a week now and thought to myself I’m too good for this, I don’t need a list of resolutions.  I also put it off because I’m just plain lazy and a procrastinator.  Then there was the fear of making everyone feel below me because they know they can’t achieve such high goals as myself.  In the end, pride, a wantent need for attention and because I like writing stuff, anything really, I decided why the fuck not.  So I went over my resolutions from last year so I could pick out the ones I didn’t do and add them to this list.  It’s a resolution continuation.  So here is my list bitches!

Merry Christmas

Christmas

Well it’s that time of year, Christmas Day.  The day adults have been waiting to hurry up and get here so they can stop worrying about buying gifts, so they can get past all the wrapping paper thown everywhere, so they can make Christmas dinner and just get it over with.   It’s also a time when kids wake up before the rooster crows, asking to get their stockings and see what santa brought.  It’s also a time when everyone sits down together as a family and open gifts.

Now if you are christian or even if your not but you believe in God, then this is also the day to celebrate Jesus’ birth.  A time of reflection and renewal of the spirit.  Though whether you believe in him or not it’s also a time to gather around the tree as a family, open gifts, and give thanks to everyone.  In today’s high paced, electronic society, this can be a rare moment for most families.  It’s a chance to bond, laugh, eat together and drink some spiked egg nog for which the rest of the year there never seems to be enough time for.

Unfortunately over the years we have gotten so worried about offending people and those who don’t believe in God that most have gone to saying “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas”.  It’s the only holiday we do this too.  Personally I don’t subscribe to this.  Those who do believe have as much right to say “Merry Christmas” as those who don’t believe say “Happy Holidays” and no one should be getting offended because someone’s beliefs are different from their own.  Last I checked it was a semi-free country.

So in closing I would like to say MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY HOLIDAYS to everyone who believes in God and to those who don’t.  I hope everyone has a blessed and joyful day with your family and friends.
