A Rant... and a little about me

I’m usually not into things like this. I don’t like email forwards especially when they say “if you don’t forward this to 10 people in the next 24 hours you will have 10 years of bad luck.” Yeah right!

Some prince in Somolia is not going to give you a million dollars, you did not win the UK lottery, there is not a law being passed that you have to list your handguns on your income tax return, and Microsoft will not give you money for forwarding an email.

These days we have a lot of information available to us. I can push a button on my cell phone, say a phrase, and do a Google search from pretty much anywhere. Why would I believe some forwarded email? If it sounds too good to be true, it probably isn't. Check it out before hitting the forward button. Try for things like that.

Okay so I got a little off topic. What I meant to say is I normally don’t do things like this. My friend Robin posted this on her blog with her answers. You are supposed to “tag” 4 people to fill this out. I was the first one she put down. There was no “you’ll have bad luck if you don’t.” Instead she said “don’t feel obligated to do this but I would love to read yours and know more about you.” (Paraphrasing) Ok, that I can handle.

That was quite the introduction… but at long last, here are a few things about me:
