Deer Hunting Season is upon us

And I had no idea how it would affect me till Joe got him self an 11 point buck this evening. Standing there, I found myself unable to breathe and crying. I had to go back in the house just to get away from the smell of death.

I also told him he couldn't 'dress' it here! He couldn't understand why I wasn't happy about his kill. And I couldn't explain it to him either. I mean, I'm happy he's happy. It's his first deer in the 7 yrs we've been together.

I'm not against hunting, there is a reason behind it. There is a long standing tradition, when done properly! When the meat is used and the hide is used and nothing goes to waste.

But I couldn't 'get behind' the death of such a graceful and beautiful animal. I won't be eating any of it either. Just the thought makes me sick to my stomach.

I probably won't even post a picture of it. But then again, he is awfully proud of himself. And I'm proud for him, just not of his actions.

Don't close your blinds ...


Don't Close your Blinds! The other day, my nine year old son wanted to know why we were at war. My husband looked at our son and then looked at me. My husband and I were in the Army during the Gulf War and we would be honored to serve and defend our Country again today. I knew that my husband would give him a good explanation. My husband thought for a few minutes and then told my son to go stand in our front living room window.

He said "Son, stand there and tell me what you see?"

"I see trees and cars and our neighbor's houses." he replied.

"OK, now I want you to pretend that our house and our yard is the United States of America and you are President Bush."

Our son giggled and said "OK."

"Now son, I want you to look out the window and pretend that every house and yard on this block is a different country" my husband said.

"OK Dad, I'm pretending."

"Now I want you to stand there and look out the window and pretend you see Saddam come out of his house with his wife, he has her by the hair and is hitting her. You see her bleeding and crying. He hits her in the face, he throws her on the ground, then he starts to kick her to

Their children run out and are afraid to stop him, they are screaming and crying, they are watching this but do nothing because they are kids and they are afraid of their father.
You see all of this, son....what do you do?"


"What do you do son?"

"I'd call the police, Dad."

"OK. Pretend that the police are the United Nations. They take your call. They listen to what you know and saw but they refuse to help.

What do you do then son?"

"Dad.......... but the police are supposed to help!" My son starts to whine.

"They don't want to son, because they say that it is not their place or your place to get involved and that you should stay out of it," my husband says.

"But Dad...he killed her!!" my son exclaims.

"I know he did...but the police tell you to stay out of it. Now I want you to look out that window and pretend you see our neighbor who you're pretending is Saddam turn around and do the same thing to his children."

"Daddy...he kills them?"

"Yes son, he does. What do you do?"

"Well, if the police don't want to help, I will go and ask my next door neighbor to help me stop him," our son says.

"Son, our next door neighbor sees what is happening and refuses to get involved as well. He refuses to open the door and help you stop him," my husband says.

"But Dad, I NEED help!!! I can't stop him by myself!!"

"WHAT DO YOU DO SON?" Our son starts to cry.

"OK, no one wants to help you, the man across the street saw you ask for help and saw that no one would help you stop him. He stands taller and puffs out his chest. Guess what he does next son?"

"What Daddy?"

"He walks across the street to the old ladies house and breaks down her door and drags her out, steals all her stuff and sets her house on fire and then...he kills her. He turns around and sees you standing in the window and laughs at you. WHAT DO YOU DO?"



Our son is crying and he looks down and he whispers, "I'd close the blinds, Daddy."

My husband looks at our son with tears in his eyes and asks him.


"Because Daddy.....the police are supposed to help people who needs them...and they won't help.... You always say that neighbors are supposed to HELP neighbors, but they won't help either...they won't help me stop him...I'm afraid....I can't do it by myself Daddy.....I can't
look out my window and just watch him do all these terrible things'm just going to close the I can't see what he's doing........and I'm going to pretend that it is not happening."

I start to cry. My husband looks at our nine year old son standing in the window, looking pitiful and ashamed at his answers to my husband's questions and he says...


"Yes, Daddy."

"Open the blinds because that man.... he's at your front door... "WHAT DO YOU DO?"

My son looks at his father, anger and defiance in his eyes. He balls up his tiny fists and looks his father square in the eyes, without hesitation he says: " I DEFEND MY FAMILY DAD!! I'M NOT GONNA LET HIM HURT MOMMY OR MY SISTER, DAD!!! I'M GONNA FIGHT HIM, DAD, I'M GONNA FIGHT HIM!!!!!"

I see a tear roll down my husband's cheek and he grabs our son to his chest and hugs him tight, and says... " It's too late to fight him, he's too strong and he's already at YOUR front door should have stopped him BEFORE he killed his wife, and his children and the old
Lady across the way. You have to do what's right, even if you have to do it alone, before its too late." my husband whispers. THAT scenario I just gave you is WHY we are at war with Iraq. When good men stand by and let evil happen son, THAT is the greatest atrocity in the world.


This should be printed in every newspaper and posted in every school In America. Of course that won't happen so we'll use the internet. If your blinds are closed do nothing with this email. If they are open I do not need to tell you what to do.

What a Fabulous Weekend

WOW! I had a spectacular weekend! The weather held out and was beautiful both Saturday and Sunday.

I got some sun on Saturday while attending the Internationl Gold Cup. That was fun and am already making plans to attend the Virginia Gold Cup in May with a little tailgating. We watched 3 of the 5 races (I believe there were a total of 5), we saw the US Navel Seals jump in to open the day. Walked Vendors row and I tried on a few pieces of jewelry, WOW! At one point, I was sporting about $8,000 worth of jewelry. This Beautiful Tamaline(sp) Rainbow ring that was 10c and a heart shaped amathyst bracelet that was enormous, but beautiful.

I started the day having my hair put up instead of sporting a hat that day. Which is the posh thing to do on Member's Hill. But not everyone was wearing them. So, I wasn't too far out of the norm.

We finished out the evening with a surprise 60's birthday for Joe's stepdad. What a great group of older people and they could drink better than any young person I know. lolol

Sunday was the last day of the Maryland Renaissance Festival, we went, and I didn't dress, and everyone noticed. LOL It was the Day of Wrong, so Halloween abounded that day. There were the Mattrix crowd, Star Wars was there, you has your Prisoner and SWAT guy, and those were just the ones that stood out. The amount of flesh on display that day was incrediable. I put on a corset, working on my garb for next year, and I ended up with a small crowd of men watching as the wench had me lean up against the post and she tightened the thing. Talk about posture correcting! LOLOL Had several nice looking gentlemen offer to buy it if that was all I wear that day. LOL I couldn't help but to blush and gratefully decline.

What a weekend! I ended it by talking to my nephew in Alaska. He said my nickname and told me what sounds a dog, cat, monkey, cow, and duck say. I so miss him dearly and can't wait till he and my sister and bil return home to this contentient.

Have a great week!

Bullying - CL 4914 Sound Familiar?

Bullying involves the torment of others through verbal Harassment, physical assult (not really revalant in this case as they are too skeerd to venture out and face anyone), or other more subtle methods of Coercion such as Manipulation (oh oh, pick me over her or I'll have you banned by Craig).

Bullying contains four essential elements:

1) the behavior is aggressive and negative;
2) the behavior is carried out repeatedly; and
3) the behavior is purposeful

Bullying is broken into two categories:

1) Direct bullying(neither have the guts to behave this way in public and in front of the person they are directing their actions at.)
2) Indirect bullying, also known as social aggression

Social aggression or indirect bullying is most common to FEMALE bullies and YOUNG CHILDREN (which is exactly what KH and Woody are), and is characterized by forcing the victim into social isolation (this is why they hate me so and continue to stalk and harass me, I refuse to go quietly into the night). This isolation is achieved through a wide variety of techniques, including:

1) spreading gossip
2) refusing to socialize with the victim
3) bullying other people who wish to socialize with the victim (this one backfired on deal ole Woody)
4) criticizing the victim's manner of dress and other socially-significant markers (including the victim's race, religion, disability, etc). **Don't forget family, low lifes with little to do will attack your family because they can't get to you.**

Research indicates that adults who bully have personalities that are authoritarian, combined with a strong need to control or dominate. It has also been suggested that a deficit in social skills and a prejudicial view of subordinates can be particular risk factors.

Further studies have shown that while envy and resentment may be motives for bullying, there is evidence that suggests bullies suffer from a deficit in self esteem.

Types of Serial Bully

The attention seeker: *not sure, but this could be Woody*
Motivation: to be the centre of attention
Mindset: control freak, manipulation, narcissistic
Malice: medium to high; when held accountable, very high

The Wannabe: *sounds to me like they nailed KH w/this one*
Motivation: craves respect for being competent and professional despite lacking in competence and professionalism
Mindset: deceptive
Malice: low to medium; when held accountable, medium to high

The Guru:
Motivation: task focused
Mindset: confusion, inability to understand how others think and feel
Malice: zero to low; when held accountable, low to medium (it's often the absence of malice that identifies a guru type of serial bully) but could be medium to high if narcissistic or psychopathic traits are present

The Socialised Psychopath or Sociopath: *Sounds about right for Woody*
Motivation: power, gratification, personal gain, survival
Mindset: manipulation, deception, evil
Malice: high to very high; when held accountable, off the scale

Fighting back:

It is generally accepted that, once under attack, fighting back may be the only means the victim has to defend themselves. Though other sources discourage this approach.

Bullying often takes the form of trying to provoke the target into fighting back so that the bully can claim to be the victimised party and only acting in self defence. This last statement couldn't have been more correct about the actions taken by Woody and KH.

They will continue to see nothing wrong with their own behavior and those who continue to stand their ground are the abusers and the cowards.

Stalking is a legal term for repeated harassment or other forms of invasion of a person's privacy. Statutes vary between jurisdiction but may include such acts as:

- repeated following; *CL Forums*
- unwanted contact (by letter or other means of communication); *trolling my blog repeatedly hoping for some sort of acknowledgement*
- observing a person's actions closely for an extended period of time; or
contacting family members, friends, or associates of a target inappropriately
cyberstalking. *Woody harassing my former employer with phone calls and emails*

Cowardice may be considered to be prudence that does not take consequences to their furthest extent. Someone who attacks a person is also considered a coward. *both Woody and KH at this stage of the game*

The word "coward" comes from an Old French word coart, a combination of the word for "tail" and an agent noun suffix. It would therefore have meant "one with a tail" — perhaps one in the habit of turning it, or it may be derived from a dog's habit of tucking its tail between its legs when it is afraid.

Unpleasant and Miserable People

Ever deal with someone who turns out to be so unpleasant they make the entire experience of knowing them miserable? Make you wish you'd never encountered them, never been nice to them initially, or wishing that you'd never even bothered to acknowledge their exsistance?

Ever try to distance yourself from that person only to find them sitting on your doorstep (chat forum or blog site) just waiting to annoy you, curse you, and berate you for for something they construe to be against them?

This person continues to demand an apology from you and you haven't done anything to them, or you've apologized previously and they so conveniently missed it? You aren't waiting for them, you aren't thinking of them, you aren't even associating with them any longer, yet they continue to harass and stalk you, all the while demanding an apology for your actions?

This is the type of person who uses foul language either directed at you or referring to you all the time, and will name call because they lack the intelligence of finding another solution to the problem. They see you as the problem, not them, not their actions leading up to, or the fact that they've gone out of their way to behave in such a manner and do so publically, yet you are still the problem.

This person can't get over the past, can't let go and refuses to leave you be?

I am currently dealing with just such an imature individual. She continue to hound my blog, trolling the MODERATED comments in hopes that I'll acknowledge her existance by allowing just one single comment through.

She stalks me on a mutual forum, having my handle deleted, accusing other's of being me when actually, I don't even waste time with her any longer. Now, I know what you are thinking, why not just leave that particular forum. Why indeed, I have good friends there; wonderfully funny, friendly, and super awesome friends there. I'd hate to have to give up something I enjoy because someone can't let go?

Well, just a little vent for the day. I'm looking forward to a wonderfully beautiful weekend at the International Gold Cup here in Virginia. A surprise Birthday party for a relative Saturday evening and the Maryland Renaissance Festival on Sunday with friends. Should make for a relaxing and fun filled weekend.

FAKE Federal Investigation Threat!!!!

I hate to inform the two individuals, who soo whole heartedly believe that I've been investigated by the Federal Government, that one or both of you have been duped! Or lied too, or spewed lies!!

In working with both the ONE single Staffing Agency I've worked with for the last 4.5 yrs and the Contractor who hired me for the Government Position, neither the HR or Legal departments for both companies EVER RECEIVED A REQUEST FOR EMPLOYMENT VERIFICATION or any other requests for my work history with the companies.

I've forwarded to them copies of the posts made by which ever one of you made them and I've also provided both your names and at least 1 address w/phone number and the other's IP address and State in which you live.

Needless to say, they aren't happy about being slandered. I hope you hear from them soon! And I hope you get everything you deserve! Have a nice life, however it turns out.

This is Hysterical! I'm being TROLLED

What part of moderated comments don't you get? And I'm the one being infantile? LMAO! 18 posts in the last 15 minutes or more. Sounds to me like someone has a serious attachment issue.

Poor thing! I bet your family is lonely. You are just as guilty as I am. Don't think either you or Woody would come out of this unscathed.

You see FEAR, I see an unwillingness to Bend!

You will not get the best of me! You are nothing to me, therefore warrant NO APOLOGY! You will never get an apology from me! Nor will Woody! Troll my Blog all you want, it takes 2 steps to get rid of you! 'Check & Reject' Simple as that! I love it!

And you see me with a problem. Who's trolling someone elses Blog? How sad you are! I do feel sorry for you! But that is as far as it goes!

To Think I'd ever post anything from you!

Silly B*tch! You are the one with a problem! As for my financial ability to file a lawsuit; oh I have the money, I have the money and the support of Family should I need theirs too! And hiding I am not! I will file a lawsuit and I will be heard!

I've already spoken with both the Temp Agency and the Contractor I worked for, their Legal departments are involved now! Both you and Woody will reap what you have sewn here! They aren't happy about having their names associated with this stipud crap!

As for your investigator, why not email his contact infor to me? If he truly exsists, I wonder what his Director would say should he have made false statements and produced false documents. I'd like proof you aren't just spewing crap. Which is more likely than not at this point.

You can call me anything you want, especially if it helps you feel better about yourself. Frankly, I'm growning truly tired of your ignorance. And I'm beginning to believe that Woody has actually stepped back from all this. Trying to distance herself, or maybe, she's wised up!

Continue to post here, just not this, it will never make it. Call me scared, coward, what ever helps you to sleep at night. You are nothing to me! And I won't be taunted anymore by you!

Blind and Niave! This is killing me! I'm dying laughing!

Here is, yet another comment that, yeap you've guessed it, will never make it to my blog. But I will share excerts with you for your enjoyment. And nope, not scared or ashamed as it claims. Frankly, I am exhausted and tired of this childish back and forth crap by ignorant individuals who do not see they they've executed the same exact things they bash me for doing.

How do they not see it? I'm fully admitting to my issues, yet somehow, they are free and clear of all wrong doing? Yet they persist in hounding me and making false claims and slandering me left and right. I merely stay to myself and update my blog from time to time, of course for you enjoyment and my sanity. LOLOL

Ok, here we go. This ought to be fun for all!

"You know as well as I do that you made that phone call to harass. You had just wished death to that person before you called her home." Hmm.. maybe I did, but Woody brings out the worst in people who deal with her. For instance, KH, do you realize the type of person you've turned into here? Hateful, evil, mean, and confrintational all for what? What are you getting out of this? I've never lied about that ONE phone call or that ONE email I sent her.

" 'I have never been terminated and I surely haven't lost 4 jobs in the last 4 months' - DO YOU READ? I never said you lost all 4 jobs within 4 months because I know it's happened within the this last YEAR. If this fact is indeed FALSE - then you need to talk to the federal investigator becasue not only did he disclose this information but he also called you 'an obvious nutcase.' " Wow, so many handles I don't know who's who anymore, how do you keep up my dear? So, you didn't say it but you've continued to perpetuate it and that is a crime! As for being terminated, still a false statement on your part! That I can prove and will in a court of law. I hope the weather is nice for my trip to Oregan.

"Lets also talk about the police man that called you a liar and Craig himself calling you a 'nutter.' " Ok, lets talk about it? What do you want to discuss? What did I lie about, eh? Sure, I called Woody, ONE time! I never even got to speak to her, she hung up like the coward she is! Oh and as for Craig calling me a 'nutter', ok, I've always admitted to being a little off, so what? He is the least of my worries, since you've both used his forum to wreck havoc on my life, he'll be named in this suit as well. That ought make things interesting.

"I dare you to post this comment as well as the other one, in full and unedited." LMAO! Dare all you want too, throw out there a triple dog dare even. You still are so not worth this effort I am excuding, it's beyond me what you are gaining from this other than making yourself look more and more ignorant as YOU go along! Me, I am seriously stupid for bothering with you and Woody. Now or even in the beginning. I can't believe I've let this go on now for nearing a year! Well, not for much longer my dear.

"As for the blog being reported, you know and I can prove that you have had to edit your previous posts to be rid of personal information." Yeap, true. I had to edit, but I made that decission on my own and had done that way before Google(Blogspot Host) emailed me about it. So, what's your deal? If was your claim that my blog would be removed that I was addressing, not the fact that I edited. I have that right to make what ever changes I feel necessary. You still claim that I'll lose my blog and we both know it didn't happen the first time you and Woody made that claim, and it's not going to happen this time. My posts are well within the TOU!

"Lie all you want ..." Yeap, I'm the one lying. Yeap, I made ONE phone call to Woody. Yeap, I emailed Woody ONCE! Yeap, I phoned your Employer 5 times and emailed your employer 5 times in one day. Yeap, that was me! You are full of crap! You and I and everyone else knows I never bothered ANYONE else on CL the way you and Woody have done me! You two are the mental cases. You two are the ones who continue this, while I make every effort to ignore you and be rid of this stupid childish crap! It is YOU TWO WHO CONTINUE THIS ONSLOUGHT!!

"I'd love to see the emails saying that I thought it was Woody." Oh, you will dear. But only in a court of law. I have nothing to prove to anyone else outside this situation.

Okay, this one doesn't make sense to me, but I'll post it anyway. LOLOL "You sit there and ADMIT on your blog that you do in fact post personal info of others - WHY DO YOU THINK IT IS OKAY? It is NEVER okay. EVER." Not sure who you are speaking to here, yourself or Woody? Yet it's something you might want to heed, both of you! Sure, I've posted personal information, YOUR NAME, WOODY'S NAME, and the cities you two live in. HOWEVER, I have never offered anyone any more personal information on the two of you. Unlike yourself and Woody have done often! What I had, I never shared openly with anyone! Oh yeah, I confirmed the information a few came to me with, but they already had it. I either said Ye or Na. LOL

"Because you are a crazy b*tch?" Don't know why you possed it as a question, when I've often admitted to it! Silly child! As for coming to Oregan, oh yeah, I'm making plans now and I'll see you in court. Not that I expect to gain financially from either of you, I just want this stupid shit to stop! And if that is what it takes to make it happen, then so be it!

So, scared or ashamed; No, not likely. Not of anything I said or did on CL in relation to the two of you. What I am embarrased about is the fact that I allowed you and Woody to turn me into a hateful person. I value humanity, appearently far more than either of you two do, and yet, you've helped Woody to create a monster. That I am ashamed of, for it's not truly who I am. As I'm sure, you are not this Monster you've turned into. Too bad neither of us will ever know the true person(s) behind this exaggerated drama!

Threatening someone Using the Federal Government

It's been said that a Federal Investigation was conducted against me, brought on by my STALKER. They've also repeatedly mentioned the Staffing agency I worked for, as well as the company that hired me. Know this, threatening and harassing someone via the internet with a false statement indicating the Federal Government is a crime!

Well, I've been in contact with both the legal department and the HR department of both companies, as has my lawyer. And no one ever spoke with a Federal Investigator or made false statements to the effect that I was 'terminated'. If they had, I could have sued them both and been very well off! So, the postings made on CL have been passed via lawyers to both companies and I'm sure action will be taken. At least I can only hope they'll step up and clean their name from this childish trash going on here.

My current lawyer has begun to work with a Lawyer in Oregan as well. I might be taking a trip out to Oregan, I've heard it's nice out that way. Oh well, I hate this has taken this turn.

Wow.. I've offended my NAIVE STALKER

And you wouldn't believe who it is? Nope, not dear ole Woody, but Knuckles. She thinks I'm the stalker, following people from forum to forum, name calling, bashing, harassing and STALKING!

Here are excerts from her post to my previous posting.

"You are a very sick, sad & pathetic individual." Yet she can instagate arguments and follow folks from forum to forum and NEVER post her indiscretions. Nope, not KH, she never does a thing wrong!

"It is YOU who makes calls to someone's home, harasses by email, wishes DEATH and/or HARM to others, violates Fed. Government regulations and government contractor computer access to be on CL, to enable your sick addiction." True, I made 1 phone call to see about resolving like adults this situation that has gotten out of hand. Yet the SINGLE individual I phone hung and then called the MCPD and both of us were chidded for behaving like children and told that we were wasting their time.

"Your online activities have been investigated by a federal agency, the investigative agent is the one who has revealed that you have been "TERMINATED" from your temporary agency jobs FOUR TIMES ALREADY..." This statement couldn't be more false than if she created it herself. What a shame she has no idea what she's talking about. I have never been 'terminated' and I surely haven't lost 4 jobs in the last 4 months. If the above statement were true, I'd not hold the position I do currently. Pretty sad if you ask me all the work these 2 put into my life, wish I had that kind of time.

"You've just been flagged & reported again to Google and you will be required to remove this post. Oh such a shame!" This my dear won't happen, just like it didn't happen the first time you and that 'dog' of yours Woody tried to get my blog removed!

"Everything you accuse others of doing is a lie - but in fact what you yourself do." So, it was I who phoned your employer? I don't think so missy, didn't feel good did it to have to explain your actions on CL? Now you know how I felt when Woody harassed via email and cell, my boss. Keep this up and your employer will hear from my lawyer!

"It is YOU who sign people up for porn, magazines, AND PERSONAL INFORMATION SO THAT OTHERS WILL JOIN IN YOUR HARASSMENT --" I still have your very first few emails privately too me stating the Woody was the one doing all this TO YOU! And I've had others confirm it's happened to them as well. I posted Woody's out-dated photo from the 70's and I never posted her address or phone number, unlike she did. I merely stated her name, your name and the cities and states you both live in. You truly are niave and I do so feel sorry for you.

What a sad world this individual lives in. I was taunted into an argument a week or so ago in 4914 and gave in out of sheer frustration. But I do not STALK or FOLLOW folks from forum to forum only giving out HALF OF THE INFORMATION. KH, why not post all your handles, and all of Woody's handles, all what? 100 or more of them? How many email accts do you have to manage them. I don't know about you, but I'm tired of the childishness.

It would seem you and Woody both are getting banned and 'shutdown' about as much as the rest of us are. Take the hint, Craig is as tired of you, as he is of me. Get on with your life, please for the sake of your children and your poor animals. Leave me to mine and I'll do just fine without you. I assure you. And if I'm such a miserable failure, why do you bother with me? Truly a sad individual you are.

Craigslist STALKER Still At It, thanks SK of SS, MD

Wonder why you post in the forums only to find your handle deleted for NO GOOD REASON ? Ever heard of a TROLL, well the CL STALKER is far worse than a Troll could ever hope to be. Especially if you become HER target.

And what is the saddest part of all this, this STALKER was by far the worst individual of all on CL. She'll'google' your name, find your personal information and post it on CL for all to see. It's been said she'd sign you up for Porn and other adult sites using your email address. She's signed folks up for magazines. She's passed photos and phone numbers and mailing addresses out to others who have done far worse to a target. She's even phone employers and made attempts to get people fired from work.

Yet, you retaliate and she's calling the police on you or threatening a Federal Investigation for Internet harassment. She has nothing better to do with her life than spend 12 to 14 hrs (personally admitted too by her hand) on CL flagging and STALKING from forum to forum folks she does not care for. She'll post in grey and there's nothing wrong with it, but yet, you post in GREY and you are hiding from Craig.

She can spew foul names, poke fun at your family and make snid comments; yet you come back at her or her 'girlfriend' and you get flagged and sent to Craig. Of which I'm sure poor Craig has to be super tired of hearing from this mentally insane individual, because he's been removing her just as much as he's been removing other violators of the TOU. He might actually be far more tired of her than me. Which would be nice for once.

Most know her as Woodysknickle or Woody(SK of SS, MD), but she has managed to create nearing 100 handles and a dozen or more emails to deal with the banning by Craig and staff. I'm a favorite target of hers. That bit about the employers, I've been a target there, as with the Federal Investigation threat. She's a total nutcase and deranged is not a strong enough word to charcterize this individual.

She started out as a Pet Flagger, then turned into an Anti-Pet Flagger, and then changed back and now is back to being an Anti-Pet Flagger. She has one known niave follower by the name of Knucklehead (KH) (AA of Oregon) who felt the sting of an employer getting a phone call from what I hear. That couldn't have been pretty. I know mine wasn't. Too bad, you play with fire you are bound to get burned.

Well, that is enough ranting for now. I'll post again about SK or Woody sometime this week. I'm tired of this childish crap. I've vowed to leave her alone, yet she can't let me go. Aww.. I love to be loved so passionately! Thanks SK. *hugs to you*

No Dog deserves this!!!!

This is No Chance, down in St. John's shelter in Louisiana. Here is his story, and if you can help him, please do!! Even if it's just on a temporary basis. You reward with come to you Ten Fold!!

"PLEADING FOR HELP: Meet No Chance. No Chance, has no chance in hell of making it without rescue. He is sweet, submissive and hungry. He is currently at the St. John Animal Shelter, another inmate, subjected to animal neglect and cruelty. This sweet affectionate puppy is possibly a it bull mix and St. John Animal Shelter is not permitted to adopt pitbulls or pit mixes to the public.

No Chance will be euthanized in a few days. Can anyone offer this little guy a prayer of a better life? A Second Chance??? He is possibly 5 months old and super affectionate - all he wants to do is curl up in someone's lap. Please forward this email - Let's give him at least one chance by forwarding this email to a rescue that may be able to help him. I will be happy to assist with transport. Melanie 504-339-3488"

Pit Bull Saves Child From House Fire

A three-year-old pit bull named Marley is credited with saving a little girl in Alaska from a house fire in early December.

by Sherry Morse

A three-year-old pit bull named Marley is credited with saving a little girl in Alaska from a house fire in early December.

Marley, a black and white dog who looks like Pete from the Little Rascals television show, grabbed the back of six-year-old Autumn Marley's jacket to drag her out of the burning house.

Autumn alerted her mother who was cooking dinner that the entryway to the house was on fire.

Julie Marley then forced open a seldom used back door so she and her two daughters could escape the fire.

As Ms. Marley left the house she turned to see Marley the dog pulling Autumn through the door to safety.

Jennifer Ingram, Marley's guardian, said that, "She's always been an awesome dog, but I didn't know she was capable of doing this." Ingram has raised Marley from a puppy.

Ms. Ingram was out shopping for Christmas presents when the fire broke out and arrived home to find Marley running loose in the midst of all the firefighters and bystanders.

She planned to take Marley to the vet to treat frostbite on her feet from being out in the snow.

Thanks to Autumn and Marley no one was injured in the fire, although the house was a total loss.

The Red Cross set up a place for the Marley family to stay, while Ms. Ingram and Marley the dog are staying with a friend.

Sgt. Stubby was a decorated WWI Hero. Helen Kellar had a 'seeing-eye' Pit bull. The dog from the Little Rascals; Petey, was a Pit bull 'type' dog.

Linka Blair is another famous owner of the Pit Bull. Other than rappers, how many other influently people are out there who own Pit Bulls?

Pit Bull Saves Man's Life, Dies a Hero

**It's not current, but it is 1 of the numerous articles out there like it!**

April 26, 2001 Belmont, North Carolina, USA

Good thing Gaston County, North Carolina doesn't have a ban on pit bulls, or this man wouldn't be alive this morning.

Steve Carpacca, 41, was asleep in his mobile home at 3:15am when his pit bull ran into the bedroom and started barking frantically.

The man awoke to a room filled with smoke and immediately ran outside. When he realized that his dog had not followed him, he rushed back into the blazing trailer, armed with two 5-pound fire extinguishers, but the fire was already out of control.

Four fire departments responded to the call, and it took a total of 15 firefighters to douse the flames. The dog never made it out; fire crews found the little hero's body in the hall just outside Mr. Carpacca's bedroom.

Mr. Carpacca was devastated at the loss of his dog.

"The dog saved his life, absolutely," said Chief Dicky Harris with the Community Volunteer Fire Department. "If the dog hadn't been in the house, [Mr. Carpacca] would have been overcome by smoke."

It is believed that the fire was caused by an electric heater in the kitchen. Mr. Carpacca never heard any of the smoke detectors sound.

'Pit' Puppy saves boy, 4, from injury

A puppy saved its four-year-old owner from serious injury after the boy stepped on a manhole cover and plunged feet first into a sewer.

The accident happened last Thursday when Jack Sorrell, from High Brooms, was holding the Staffordshire Bull Terrier on a walk with his grandfather.

Fortunately Mia the dog pulled forward on the lead and stopped Jack from falling down any further.

Kent County Council denied any blame as the drain is on private land.

But Jack's father Tony Philips said it was the second such incident.

"The lady who lives next door, her husband fell through the same drain hole two months ago and they reported it, but it still hasn't been fixed."

Norman Kelly, the youngster's grandfather, demanded that something be done.

"It's down by a set of garages so it should be able to take the weight of a vehicle, never mind the weight of a four-year-old child.

Jack described the experience as "scary".

His father said it could have been a lot worse because his son suffers from a medical condition where by he can stop breathing if he hits his head.

He added: "Mia's a super dog, she's a star and she's Jack's saviour."



What a great blogspot! Love her photos and the dogs just seem amazing!

For Pit Bulls, It's A Bum Rap

August 20, 2006 By B. Phillips

The story was all over the TV news in July: Hartford police shot a pit bull six times after the dog attacked a woman, who needed 17 stitches in her calf.

Most people probably paid little heed, or merely thought "typical pit bull."

Some of us, though, saw that story and shuddered. Not with fear but sympathy.

For the dog.

The images were telling: a small fenced-in dirt yard, a giant chain with a broken padlock at the end, scared bystanders describing the ferocious dog.

Sitting on the couch in my condo, watching, I blanched. I looked over at my pit, Augustus, reclining on the couch next to me. He, too, came from the streets of Hartford, where he earned his scars in fights with other dogs.

A skinny wraith when he was rescued, now he's 80 pounds of black-and-tan affection, winning the hearts of everyone he meets. Well, mostly everyone. Some people still cross the street when they see him coming.

Everyone's heard the stereotypes about pit bulls: They're vicious. (Occasionally.) They were bred for fighting. (True.) They can bite down with thousands of pounds of pressure. (False.)
Once they bite, their jaws lock and never let go. (False.)

But talk to pit bull owners and you'll hear a different message:

"They are the most loyal, loving dogs you'll ever own," said Barbie Perry, executive director of Canton-based Hot Water Rescue, an organization that rescues, fosters and places the so-called "bully breeds" like pit bulls and Rottweilers."

They are so loving," said Mariette, owner of three adopted pit bulls who lives in Barkhamsted with her husband Steve. She didn't want her last name used because she's afraid her insurance company would raise their insurance premiums for having pit bulls."

They are wonderful dogs," said Stacey, a Winchester resident who withheld her last name for the same reason. She and her boyfriend adopted their pit bull, Maple, from a shelter after the dog was seized by the FBI during a drug raid in Hartford. Since getting to know Maple, Stacey said, her boyfriend's father, sister and brother have each adopted pits of their own.

Loyal, loving, affectionate - downright snuggly, in fact - are words used to describe pits by those who own them. And it seems that once you meet a pit, it won't be long before you want one.

It's the dogs' loyalty that helped them earn their reputation as deadly fighters. Originally bred to bait bulls or to fight in arenas called pits - hence the name - the dogs' owners had to be able to enter the ring and separate the dogs if necessary. Any dog that showed aggression toward humans was usually put down.

Pit bulls' "ultimate instinct is to do whatever they have to to earn their owner's love," said Perry, a slight woman with long dark hair and intense blue eyes, whose extensive knowledge of the bully breeds is matched by her passion for rescuing them. " The dogs were bred to be non-aggressive to humans."

The name "pit bull" is used to describe a type of dog, most often one of three breeds: the American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier and Staffordshire Bull Terrier. All three have short coats, well-muscled bodies and stoic demeanors.

Petey, the dog on The Little Rascals comedies of the 1920 and '30s, was an American Staffordshire terrier. Helen Keller's service dog was a pit bull-type. And a Staffordshire terrier named Sgt. Stubby was a decorated World War I canine hero who warned troops of incoming gas and helped flush out enemy snipers.

It's only in the past 20 years or so that pit bulls have acquired a bad reputation, according to Karen Delise, author of "Fatal Dog Attacks, The Stories Behind the Statistics." And it largely stems from irresponsible owners, who chain their dogs in back yards, starve them, beat them, fight them or throw them away if they aren't good fighters.

"Most pits don't want to fight," said Perry. "They want to be loving to people. They're the ultimate family companion."

"My bird and my dog can chew on the same bone," said Stacey. When a Chihuahua bit Maple on the nose, "She didn't react at all."

Many pit owners mentioned the sense of responsibility that comes with owning such a high-profile, much-maligned breed. They take care to keep their dogs leashed and make sure they're well-trained and obedient."

I'm overly cautious," said Liz Taylor of East Hartford.

"I'm harder on my dog because she's a pit bull," said Stacey. "I make sure she has impeccable behavior. I'm proud to say she's a pit bull."

Perry offered advice for those thinking of getting one. Educate yourself, so you know exactly what you're getting. Be prepared to face prejudice. Be ready for a full-time commitment; the dogs need lots of exercise. If you're getting a puppy, make sure it's socialized with other dogs at an early age.

The extra precautions and work of owning a pit bull are worth it, owners say. "I couldn't imagine owning any other dog," said Taylor.

Neither can I.

But Perry, whose organization rescued Gus from the streets, is right when she urges people to research the breed. Pit bulls aren't for everyone. Gus can be a handful at times, and he can't be around other dogs. On my insurance forms, he's listed as "mutt."

But visitors to my condo are more in danger of getting licked to death or thwacked by his constantly wagging tail than they are of getting bitten. On a recent night, as six friends sat around talking, Gus walked joyfully from person to person, a big pitty smile on his face. One woman sat tucked into a corner of the couch, keeping a wary eye on him. Correctly sensing her fear of dogs, he climbed onto the couch next to her, sticking his big anvil-shaped head close to hers and licking her ear.

By the end of the night, he'd won another heart.,0,580945.story

Owners Accountable for Dangerous Dogs

As well they should be held Accountable for THEIR dog's actions! It is them who teach or lack there of, the dog it's behavor.

This blog; written by a local Virginia Lawyer, makes for fine reading on the topic. I'd rather vote for a law that holds the HUMAN responsible, than vote for one that lumps all of one breed regardless into one catagory for distruction.

"On Sunday, one pitbull got loose in Monroe Park and attacked at least five people, causing puncture wounds from the dog's teeth. Witnesses at the scene told police that the dog was not provoked and just went "wild". The owner admitted to one reporter that this dog had been known to attack. Notwithstanding, he decided to take this dog for a walk without a muzzle or any special chain."

The above individual should be sued by those biten by his dog. He was at fault souly, he failed to train his dog properly or 'walk' it properly. But in the end, HIS dog will be put down or was. Due to the Ignorance of this poor dog's owner, he pays the Highest price of all! His life!

When will it stop? What breed is next?

Toronto, August 23, 2006:
The Attorney General for Ontario announced last night that in view of the success of the province's ban on pit bulls the government is turning its attention to another very popular breed of dog.

He made the following announcement at a press conference late yesterday: "These dogs are involved in more biting and mauling incidents than any other breed in Ontario. Every time I read a news report about a dangerous dog, it involves a Lab or a Lab cross. We had another incident today in Waterloo involving Labs attacking people on the street. Enough is enough. It's time to take a long, hard look at these dogs."

When questioned about the advisability of bringing the issue before the public in an election year, the Attorney General said: "The public wants to be protected from dangerous dogs. The public supported the pit bull ban because they knew it was time to get dangerous dogs off our streets and out of our parks and backyards. The precedent has been set, our ban is working and it's time to look at other types of dogs involved in large numbers of bites and attacks."

As to whether it would be put to a vote in the Legislature or if public hearings would be held as they were for the pit bull ban, the response was: "We went through a vote, we had public hearings and we remained convinced that banning pit bulls was the right thing to do. The law allows the government to add any breeds or mixed breeds to its list of prohibited dogs without consultation. Municipalities have that authority as well."

The Opposition Critic could not be reached for comment. The NDP Attorney General Critic had this to say:

"I don't know why anyone would be surprised by this announcement.
The Attorney General has already proven he is capable of banning dogs because of their breed. Labs are one of the most popular dogs in the province, why wouldn't they be next? More dogs, more bites - it isn't rocket science".

Asked if he thought adding another breed to the ban would protect the public, he replied "I don't know about the public. I think this is more about protecting the Attorney General's seat."

An abused, dying pup becomes a drug-sniffing superdog

KOOL K-9 Popsicle
<~From People Weekly Magazine Edition April 26, 1999 The "Animal" chronicle, Page 117

"He's a little ball of fire" says U.S. Customs officer J.J. Trevino of Popsicle (Receiving a significant Seizure medal in March).

During an arrest two years ago, Buffalo policeman Ron Clark, Jr. opened an abandoned freezer on a known drug dealer's back porch and found a bulging black garbage bag.

"I poked my flashlight at it," he recalls, "and it started moving. My worst fear was that it was a baby."In fact, it was a puppy, a pit bull who would be known as Popsicle and -- in a lovely ironic twist-- would gain fame for sniffing out the kind of bad guy that nearly killed him.

One year ago, Popsicle helped the feds seize 3,075 pounds of cocaine from a pineapple-laden truck at the Mexican border-the biggest drug bust ever at the Hidalgo, Texas, port of entry. "It's astounding the obstacles this dog has overcome," says US Customs Service Commissioner Raymond W. Kelley.

When Officer Clark found the wounded, blood-caked animal who had apparently been used in pit bull fights, he was undernourished, hypothermic and near death. "He was in bad shape, but I was drawn to him," says SPCA adoption counselor Shannon Willie, who name the pup Popsicle.

Alas, people who visited the shelter looking to adopt a puppy were put off by his breed's reputation. They would take one look at the pit bull and walk away.

When Popsicle regained his strength, the shelter contacted US Customs canine-enforcement officer Sally Barr. It was a long shot, but maybe he would qualify for the dog training school in Front Royal, VA.

Of 500 dogs Barr has tested in the last three years, only 4 have made the cut. "You want a dog that plays a terrific tug-of-war," says Barr. Popsicle did, and in February 1998 he graduated at the top of his class and became a celebrated alumnus two months later by detecting the record contraband cache under a tractor-trailer.

"You have to imagine him," says US Customs canine handler J.J. Trevino ,"on his hind legs, barking, trying to reach up to the bottom of the truck."

Back in Buffalo, where the bad guy eventually got off with probation for animal cruelty, Ron Clark remains awed by Popsicle's comeback. "I still don't know why I opened that refrigerator," says Clark. "But it feel like it was meant to be."



1st off, let me say this, if education is key in your life, DO NOT VISIT THIS blog! Ignorance abounds here by it's creator.

His profile shot is sadly and obviously a photoshoped Pit with narly teeth snarling at you. Poor photoshop I might add as well.

He's chosen to display the negative and refuses to display the positive in this breed. He refuses to acknowledge that a dog's temperament is the product of it's owner, as are our children!

HATE is a LEARNED behavor, not bred for like he'd like you to believe. His Hate for this breed is painfully obvious in his blog.

I've chosen to flag his blog, and I ask that if you have a heart, love education and what it allows you the freedom to do, please consider flagging this blogspot. Please..

Look At This...: Photography - War

Look At This...: Photography - War

Found this blogger to be of interest, and enjoyed reading some of his posts.

It's a Beautiful late Summer Day!

It's been awhile since I've done this. I would prefer to be far more diligent at it, but you can say Life sorta gets in the way. Since my sister and nephew left in July for home in Alaska, I've traveld home to Williamsburg, I guess twice now. Not as often as I'd like to though.

I've done some volunteering in that time as well, home visits for families looking to adopt and I've even surfed through CL and offered up some advice and info for those looking for help with a new pup or a rescued animal.

I've since taken the choke collar and the prong collar off Angus and we are using a Halti. You'd think I was trying to murder the poor pup with this thing the way he behaves, but he's coming along nicely, wish I had stuck to it the first time. :( Oh well, hindsight is always 20/20.

The job I took in May with a small software company is moving right along. Bob is so genuinely nice and it's hard to think I'm preparing to accept a much better, salary wise, job offer with a far more prominant Government Company in the area. BUT, family has to come first and as much as I am enjoying my current job, the money just isn't there to live like I have grown accustom to.

Wow, that last statement just really sounds lousy to me. I would have never thought there would be a 'style' or a 'quality' of life I just had to live within. I hadn't ever seen myself as a 'uppy individual'. But I guess you can't live on love and family alone.

I'm hoping to have some new pictures of the family here soon. I'd like to post a few here. Angus is growing like a weed and Kacie and Atlas need updated photos taken of them as well. I think once the weather begins to truly turn, I'll have Joe set up his tripod and see if we can get a good group photo outside in the backyard.

Joe is getting ready to celebrate his 33rd birthday on August 24th. I've managed to get 2 of his WWII prints framed thanks to my mother; who btw, is an amazing 'master' framer. She owns her own business and works for MWR on Fort Eustis, VA. The one he has wanted done for a while was of him taken by Rob Gibson of Gettysburg, PA, and is of him holding a vintage WWII machine gun 'laying in wait' to ambush WWII vintage troops at the corner of a 'house'. This photograph was taken with a working vintage 1940's camera and produced in B&W and inlaid on an old German magazin cover called 'Signal'. I'll see if I can capture a shot of it and post here it.

Well.. got a busy weekend ahead of me.. I'll update more later.. Have a wonderful weekend all..

Emotions running deep today..

Althought today was filled with love, friends and family, it's also a sad day for me. Don't know why really.. but it's a day that feels like a good cry would help both physically and emotionally.. Every have one of those?? Naaa.. never mind..

Anyway, started the day with rollers in my hair, ever try sleeping with those bitches in your hair? OMG!! lolol My hair really didn't turn out the way I wanted it. If you've ever seen a 'Paige boy' do from the 40's; well, that didn't happen for me.. LOL oh well, live and learn. Dressing in my pretty vintage yellow chaffon day dress with backseam stockings, a vintage 40's bra with absolutely no give.. lol but it was cool, and my cute vintage hat with matching yellow gloves.

I met my folks and my sister and nephew in Warrenton and we headed for Sully Plantation for the morning to visit with Joe and his crew of WWII German Geibergs Yager(sp) soldiers and some American and Russian soldiers for a Day of Living History. It was a fun morning, Mason loved the planes, we were in the flight path of Dulles Internation Airport. He also loved the mock 'live' fire the soldiers did. He loves loud noises. Smiles for days and lots of hand clapping, and playing in the dirt today as well. :D

Spending time with my mom and dad and sister was nice too. We talked, walked around, and sweated like pigs this morning. LOL So off to Applebees for lunch and then to Fair Oaks mall to walk around and kill time. Stopped at Aunt Annies for pretezels and a slurpy, Mason loved my orange-creme slurpie. :D He loved the water feature in the center of the mall, and he's a people watcher. Loved to just sit and watch the passer's by.

Well, here comes the moment of weakiness on my part. I hate saying good bye, especially when I know it's because I won't be seeing my sister or nephew till this time next year. Can't really afford a ticket to Alaska and they aren't due to return 'state side' with the Air Force till 2008. So, it was a little hard today to say good bye knowning that it truly was a good bye. So, I had a weak moment, I cried.. It felt good though, once I got in the car, rolled the windows down and turned the radio up really really loud! lolol Ponytail and favorite blue ball cap and driving fast made it all feel that much better.

Knowning that I have a terrific family, supportive in all I do, and totally loving, is awesome! I know not everyone in the world is as lucky as I am. Not only with just my family, but friends too! I don't think I could ask for more, even if given the chance.

I won't be apologizing to anyone! EVER!!!!

As for demanding these grown woman 'control' someone they've never met, how much more ridiculous can you be? And I won't be controlled by anyone! You have a problem with me, come at me and leave them out of it!

What did you hope to gain by posting someone else's photo? Really now, how childish can you be? And making threats. Really now? Your husband won't be the only one in the family to spend time behind bars you keep this up.

As for caring about what these grown woman feel about me, their opinion of me, I don't care. So, you continuing to make demands on them, you'll only end up alone as your puppet master has found out. Alone and craving that attention by taunting and posting vile comments and threats to someone elses blog.

Oh, your blog, btw; lame!! You created it only just today? Give it a rest, you are no author, you have nothing anyone really wants to read and as much as I'd love to make a post there, you and your puppet master aren't worth my time.. So.. enjoy your sad, sorry excuses for lives.. the both of you..

Happy July 3rd, the 4th is tomorrow ...

What are you plans for tomorrow? We will be attending the Great Meadows 4th of July celebration.

I could get so much done today, but I could also stand to spend a little time at work today. I could get things done without phones ringing all day long.

Well, while I sit here contemplating my next move, I have Atlas at my feet, and Angus is tormenting Kacie in the living room. What a wild little man he is. So full of life and energy, he'd get along well with my nephew.

I do hope everyone has a wonderful 4th of July. I'm off to phone my sister, it's her 31st birthday today. Enjoy your day and and I hope to chat with you guys later today. Take care of yourselves, there are monsters and eviliness among us. Sadly.. it's the fate of this world today as we know it.. :(

Rounding out my night ..

What a weekend this 4th has turned out to be. Unable to travel to North Carolina to be with my family, we spent today/night with my husband's family helping them clean out their basement from all the rain/flood waters. What a nasty mess that was. We finished our day with steak on the grill, along with baked potatoes and fresh sweet corn.

Tomorrow is my sister's birthday, so I'll be phoning her and hopfully planning a trip up this weekend before my sister and nephew return to Alaska. My nephew is the light of my life! So smart at this age, so into life and enjoying the simple things we take for granted.

My husband and I will be dressed in our WWII gard and it will be nice to have my family enjoying the Living History event at Sully Plantation. It's a beautiful park, and close to the house, so they won't be in the car all day. Oh, by the way, we portray Germans, yes, you heard me. My husband is a German Soldier. Well, actually, his character is based off a man who was of Austrain birth, loyal to the Austrain Government, yet forced into the German Army or his family would parish. His group portrays Austrian Mountain troops.

This week will be spent on making sure the house is squared away for their visit. I know they won't stay here with us, our guest room is incomplete. I haven't found an antique bedroom set yet that I like or fits the era of my home. I'm also on the look out for an antique iron or wood daybed for our other guest room. Which is currently serving as my husband's 'war' room. It hosts all his signed prints of which my mother framed for him. It plays host to all his re-enacting gear and our gun case with numerous vintage WWII rifles and pistols, all in working order.

The stream out in front of the house this week was beautiful sounding. Rushing with all that rain fall we had. To sit out on my front porch that is 25 x 4 and listen to the stream is a beautiful and peaceful sound. The lighening bugs a night around here are amazing! I can't wait to get my new wicker porch set restored and new seat cushions done. I've had an idea as well, take lattice and frame it out like a picture frame, and using 2 'o' rings and 2 'j' hooks, hang it from the end of the porch that over looks my neighbors house. As a screen sorta.

Evenually, I'll get my porch swing for the front porch, and we'll screen in the back porch and add a hottub. We will have our backyard fenced in, which is over an acre big, I think the dogs will enjoy that! Not having to be leashed walked anymore. We have the remains of the original 'Mill' house as part of our yard. I plan to clean that out and make it a party place. It's cool, and was made originally of stones from the local quarry. There is such history here, I am in love with this peaceful place.

Our black bear family have been spotted recently. The daddy bear pulled my rubbermaid trash can from the back porch and mauled it to get it open, that was a tad bit scarey.. lol The deer are running, and they enjoy my backyard for grazing. I'd love to do a veggie garden, but I'd be afriad to feed the wildlife. lolol :D

Well, I've rambled enough for one evening. I need me some lovin', so I think we'll walk the dogs and go to bed early tonight. Sleep well all... :D

Please do continue to post comments ...

I love this! You are making this supposed official investigation all the more easier for them. They'll see my attempts to escape your loonacy, only to be hounded right back in by your brutal and vicious attacks with more attacks by you.

My dad, like my employer, will only ignore you and put your emails in his spam bin. As well, chastize me for behaving like a child and tell me that I need to remove this stupid drama from my life.

The problem is, I can't ignore you, I try to and you come back at me. So, who here is stalking whom? Again?! You continually come at me, spending all your lonely time surfing the net for anything attached to my name, or that of my fathers. Where you able to locate his email?

I'll email Judge Judy with our little problem, and examples, and see what it gets us? You could ride up with me in my custom Orange Honda Element. :D :D

How much more delusional can one person be?

You are the one spending time on the net surfing for things related to me. You are the one who waste your time and everyone else, to include Craig's with this sorry shit! Grow up, leave me alone, and if you had anything. Well, you have my address, bring it on by! Retard!!!

It is a sad sad mind that can't leave a dead dog lying...

This person has gone so far as to STILL surf the net for anything to do with me. Regardless of what it is or what it relates to. And they have the nerve to call me sick and suggest that I seek help.

I think they might ought to stand in front of the mirror a while longer, as opposed to in front of the computer monitor.

Wicker Repair, what an undertaking

I purchased last night, for a virtual steal, a set of wicker furniture. A loveseat, 2 chairs, and a small table. All white, but it needs some help. I'm going to take this project on myself. I will first attempt to wash down and get off as much of the flaking old paint as possible. Then I'm going to make an attempt to fix the legs of the loveseat and chairs.

Well, wish me luck. I also have to figure out some way to keep the neighbors feral cats down off my furniture as well. I'll post pics of the furniture before I begin, in the middle of and when I finish. :D

Lions.. Staffie.. Ivor.. What the heck are you thinking?

Wow.. Why is it that a person can disassociate themselves with CL without being dragged back in by the likes of Woody and KH? Why do I even bother caring anymore? What great secret is this that they claim to have?

That I'm this Lion's person merely because this guy from Manhattan, NY uses emots as well? OMGG, heaven forbid someone else be a happy person and decides to use emots such as, :D ;D etc.

Really, now, do you ladies not have anything better to do with your lives? Give it a rest. I have yet to get 'paper's or be visited in person by a local sheriff's deputy. So, either shit or get off the pot!!

Wow.. I can't believe I've not found the time to worry

About any of this crap still being played out within the CL Forums. Staffie imposters, how flattering; my very own stalker, geee whizzzz.. lol How did I get so lucky?! :D

And someone who's apologized to me more than once in an IM/PM (instant message/private message) promising to let 'a dead dog lie.' But I guess what ever secret she claims to have about me is just sooo juicey she feels the need to taunt, use foul language and 'change her mind' as often as I hope she changes her panties.. If she wears any.

With this new job, I've found myself on the net all day, but not able to have fun. It's awesome! I hosted/moderated my very first small Conference yesterday, so I wasn't around for even my friends. Sorry ladies.. :( I did miss the gossip. :D

This weekend is moving furniture and washing walls, windows and the dogs. :D Anyone want to help out? I sure could use it. lolol Next weekend is a WWII Re-enacting event at Sully Plantation in Chatilly, VA. I'll be a 'vintage_biatch' lol all dressed in yellow and my man, a German/Austrian Gebiregs soldier. He's so handsome.

I'll post a few pics when we get them developed.. Ok, out for the night.. KH, if you truly have something, how about sharing it with me. Or hell, post if here as a comment.

Still being threatened

What is with this sad senile individual? Do they really believe that they have that much power over my life? Are they really that poor that they feel I've got just enough to share with them? How are they supposed to get it, they can't even get across the street?

It's sad, this person is still allowed to post, stalk, taunt, and abuse CL Forum goers, and CL does nothing about it.

Craig preventing folks from posting

Wow, running a publically policed community and he has the nerve to request folks stop posting to his forums. That or he'll contact their ISP. Give me a break... This man must be playing a deck short a few cards.

I'm still receiving threats against my job security. Someone must still think I work for GSA. Too bad they aren't smart enough to figure out I've changed jobs. As for continuing to email my boss, he's not overly concerned. So, stop bothering the man.

It's a shame some people have nothing better to do with their time.

CL OutCasts Yahoo forum

Subscribe to CLOutCasts
Powered by

Back to Craigslist and the drama there.

It seems that there are forum 'lurkers' still pledging the forums set-up by those who only wish to have a good time. I call them lurkers at this point because they fear showing their true selves, which most of us have already seen first hand.

They are allowed to behave any way they choose, posting personal information, hounding Craig daily, making threats, taunting, and what happens to them, NOTHING! Craig bans those who simply say 'Hello' and make an effort to hold a decent conversation.

He has the nerve to ask that I stop posting to CL, yet allow certain old individuals to continue to haunt his board for what ever reason. He'll threaten forum goers with contacting their ISP if they continue to post during the day. He's on the search now for a GSA employee who I suspect he's going to make an attempt to get fired.

For a public board, granted privately owned, and is supposed to community policed, he is out to get a group of individuals who had the balls to stand up to a two-faced old bat who still to this day, continues to make idle threats and taunt others into confirntations with her. Allowing her behavior to continue.

I'm considering setting up a Yahoo group for the ladies I've met through CL. Which are some pretty amazing ones if you ask me. Sure, we've had our differences, and they've taunted me, called me names, but hey.. we all act a little childish from time to time when there is a bully present. Someone we think we want to impress, and then find out later that you can't impress a slightly insane individual.

If money was your objective to begin with ...

I hate to tell you lady, YOU'LL NEVER SEE A DIME OF MY MONEY. I don't have any, I live paycheck to paycheck and half of those bounce.

So, you continue to harass me and stalk me and expect to win a huge amount of money from me, the only person here who's gonna get anything is your lawyer. And it aint gonna come from me!

Who's Stalking who here?

This morning, upon arriving to work, my employer informed me of his recent conversations with Woody. Oh yes, she's taken to stalking me employer; 8 emails in one day, several phone calls to his cell phone demanding he force me to publically apologize to her.

Just who is stalking whom? The emails she forwarded display ONLY my posts in the CL forums, and half of them have been edited to show me a far bigger monster than I really am.

She's stated that I've called her several times, when in fact, I've phoned once, and by the time I told her who I was, she hung up the phone. I've emailed her once, she's labeled it as threatening and harassment.

She's contacted as well regarding my Blog. She's making demands on Blogger now. WOW, this woman, who can't even cross the street, has some balls!! :D

As per telephone discussion with Google Operator #1:
In direct violation of the Member Conduct Terms of Agreement:

She has gone so far as to
enter a blog with my name, location AND PHOTO.

She has called my home, posted threats on and sent a threatening email to me.. The Craigslist posts and her email with source info is included below.

Upon receipt of her phone call last night,, Craig Newmark instructed me to call the police immediately, which I did. Craig requested and was provided all relevant information, posts, links and email. to contact the Montgomery County, Maryland Police Department.

Montgomery County (Maryland) Police Department
4th District
Officer Bryan Dyer
Event report # P060190085 - re: Kerri Baker - "threats, harassment,

After viewing the information provided below, including her blog entry: " Woody, the Leopard spotted Anti-Flagger"

Officer Dyer called Ms. Baker to inform her that she should never Again contact me, post anything about or to me, or it will become a criminal police actionable offense.

She denied having called and or sent the email - to which Officer Dyer informed her he has evidence to prove otherwise. Today, Ms. Baker, in direct violation of the police officer's order,
Has now posted my photo, name and location on your site:

This is pure defamation and harassment - all in direction and severe Violation of your Terms of Service.

Craig Newmark has informed Ms. Baker that she is never to use the Craigslist site again as a result of her having been banned at least 15 times for The same activities on his site. Craig identifies that although she is Using AOL - she is connecting through a US Government site (GSA) - which in one of The following posts she self identifies - including a phone number.

You are requested to immediately terminate Ms. Bakers account and Remove this blog.

The following is sent as evidence of her threats and intentions to use My personal information:

Your immediate attention and reply is requested."

Using all these posts, I'll be looking through CL to find all her initiating posts to me. She is the aggressor after all here. She can dish it, but can't accept it when it's thrown right back at her.

If you are at all interested in some pretty good reading material. Drop me a line, I'll gladly provide your the emails she sent to my employer. He was happy to get them off his computer. You can see right off that she's edited my posts. And not one of her posts are listed, with the exception of "THREATS DOCUMENTED! 5/10 13:54:05"

Well.. I'm done for now.. I'll continue later with this. I've got a lot of reading to do and surfing CL for her half of all these posts. I would suggest to 'whomever' is reading this blog, you cease and desist the stalking, leave my employer alone or the Fauquier Co. Magistrate will get involved, and it won't be a mere 'incident report'.

To the Concerned Comment Poster ...

Thank you for your kind words. Thank you for the concern you showed me. I know, without a doubt, there are good people out there. It's sad, that a monster like Sheryl K. can cause such havoc and be allowed to run rough shod over a PUBLIC/Privately owned Forum such as CraigsList.

As for the harassment and continued attacks by Woody, no ma'am, at least not out in the open as before. She is still out there on CL though, that much I do know. She is still continuing to email and phone Craig, possibility daily for all I know too. All the negative points that all the old forum goers are now seeing appear are quit possibily Woody as well.

What is so sad about this whole thing is, Woody found me via a mutual forum board. Element Owners Club. My original handle was LmentalMastiffs, the same one I use for the EOC. Woody was Chusakaandme. "respectfully edited by request."

So.. as seemingly childish is all this is, Woody will always be there, she has nothing else to do but be online and torment folks who have the balls to stand up to her terroristic tactics.

Take care of yourselves, be proud of being a FREE Thinkers and don't let anyone, anyone with a few screws short of a full tool box, tell you how to live, behave or who to speak.

And always have the courage to protect yourself against vile nasty busy bodies!

Sheryl K. - Woodysnickle on CL

Ok, your snide comment about the file # and MCPD contact info has been posted.

However, I've spoken with your Officer Dyer. Nice man, concerned for both our mental states at this point. He also said that two grown woman behaving such as this is a waste of Police resources!!

I guess where we need to go from here Sheryl is pretty obvious. You leave me be and I'll leave you be. Fair enough? Why not just step away from CL for a time and rethink your whole outlook on life. Why not work on that phobe of yours. That might keep you pretty busy.

Enjoy your solitude Woody.

Malicious Woody

Wow.. There has been a commit made by Woody. She's offered up the Report #, along with a name and number to the officer who called late last night. Appearantly his shift is from 3PM to 1AM.

I will verify this and follow up with the Fauquier Co Sheriff's Dept. I'm speaking with the Magistrate tomorrow and will likely be issuing an Order of Protection. It's appearant that her bahavior is only appropriate for her and no one else.

She can make contact, make threats and push buttons, but no one else can. So.. S.K., if you are reading this. Enjoy while you can.

Woody, the Leopard spotted Anti-Flagger

Ever heard the old saying, 'A leopard can't change is spots,' or 'that's a horse of another color.' Hear your mom or granmom say it about someone you thought was a friend, someone you considered to be truthful and honest? They probably said it to warn you to stay away from a person like that.

People who behave one way, then show you who they truly are by behaving another, are people to be leary of. For instance, this foul and unscrupulous Anti-flagger or flagger or self appointed Policing system of CL, Woodysnickle. You probably know her as just Woody. She has Craig Newmark's personal phone number and probably personal email at that. No, not the one we all get,

She started out as a flagger, and a pretty abusive one at that. Posting personal information of several people who stood up and opposed her terroristic tactics, myself to be included in that. But, what I have to say first is this. I was dumb enough in the first place to put it out there for her to find. Then again, I am an adult and have nothing to hide about who I am or who I choose to associate with or who I volunteer with, etc. So, I don't blame anyone for her actions, other than her.

Recently, she's made it her lifes work, "12 hours a day policing CL" to make CL forums work the way she feels they should. I said she started out as a Flagger; well, she jumped over to being an Anti-flagger and now has jumped back to being a flagger. Hmm.. tells you someone may not be playing with a full deck of cards. She has almost as many handles as she does email addresses. She has the knowledge to change her IP address when one is banned by Craig or staff.

She can be overly aggressive and foul mouthed, abusive and threatening and yet, you stand up to her and you get banned by Craig or staff. She is the only person who is allowed to behave that way on CL. At least that is the perception that is being given off by CL Staff and Craig alike.

I had the never to stand up to her. Was not going to be dictated to by some old woman with a phobe of crossing the street. So, she's taken our her anger on me and I've literally driven this woman mad with hate. Which is sad by all accounts. Not something I was working towards. She actually gave the other Anti-flaggers an ultimatium, chat with 'Staffie' and you lose me as a friend.

Can you imagine, ordering your 'internet friends' to stop talking to someone on the internet? LOL Really now, what grade did we do that in? Middle school right? Okay, some of us perhaps did it in High Scholl as well. LOL But this woman is in her 60's for god's sake!

Last night, at about 9PM EST, I received a phone call from some man claiming to be a Montgomery County Police Officer and suggested that I refrain from any more contact with ... 'this person' we were discussing. He never offered his name, not that I caught, and no follow-up telephone number to verify his creditability. In dialing *69, the 'service was unavailable due to the number being outside my service area.' So, that tells me, deal ole Woody had a friend call me.

So.. just be aware of this individual. She's bending Craig's ear an awful lot. And to think, this educated man is allowing it to happen. I often wonder if he's as smart and independent as he's played out to be.

Malicious Flaggers hold no candle to Foul Abusive Anti-Flaggers

Over the course of the last few months, the 'flagging forum' 2626 has been over run with Anti-flaggers. Often times, these Anti-flaggers are so abusive, it's appauling to even read the language that comes from them. Flaggers actually pale in comparison to the behavior of these individuals.

If you are adult and brave enough to post something personal about yourself, they'll take it and surf the net and find out all there is about you that is to be had. They'll taunt you with it, pass it via email back and forth to their 'friends' and even make personal threats against your person and family. Some of them appear to have self-esteem issues; again, brave enough to post a picture of yourself, they bash your appearance, body structure, etc.

The most notorious of all the nastiest Anti-Flaggers was; well, the very reason this originial blog was begun. Yes, this person was a Flagger to begin with. Yet, somehow managing to change her stipes from Flagger to Anit-flagger she had begun to 'take over' and appoint herself' HEAD' of the Anti-flaggers.

They were creating secret forums, using code to direct those 'trusted friends' to hop over there and discuss their strategy for thwarting the Flaggers and those opposed to even their behavor. At one time, 'Barbeque' was an obvious code word. And in fact, it was the demise of the this so called 'group'.

Unbeknowst to an innocent bystander, they offered to bring potato salad to this 'Barbeque', and the "monster" flipped out accusing those 'trusted friends' of inviting someone that was not approved by her. How utterly awful, aint it all? :D

This forum is a huge pain in Craig's backside. Handle banning, IP banning, and all this just isn't working. Things are beginning to crumb in that room. Mental states are being questioned, especially that of the 'head' of the clan. She has openly admitted to spending 12 hrs a day on CL 'policing' in her own way, her own agenda, the way she feels the board should be run.

Truly sad! All of it!

CraigsList & Malicious Flaggers

If you've used CL for any lenght of time, you know all about the Flaggers. People who make it their business to uphold the TOU regardless of the actual post made.

Generally, they focus all their time on Animal related ads. Whether that be hidden in the 'General' community or the 'Pets' community section. Now, the TOU states "No Selling of LIVE Animals." That is not my issue here, that is the easy part. If you violate the TOU, you should be flagged off the board.

But that is not always the case here. There is a group, abeit small, of malicious flaggers that flag anything they, personally, disagree with. Whether that be the way the ad reads (spayed or neutered vs. not altered), omission of any fee, or the 'adoption/rehoming fee' that is being sought. They flag with little regard for the animal its self.

They have a forum, they use to communicate and get ads from all over CL flagged off. They even use it to make personal commentary and belittling remarks about individuals. They have also been known to post personal and business information and even gone as far as to offer it to those other flaggers who wish to make a nuisance of themselves.

To further compound this issue, CraigsList employees are Banning IP addresses and 'handles', and deleting posts from one forum, essentially moving them to the "Isle of Misfit Threads" of anyone who steps up and opposes the Flaggers.

In excerts from CLs CEO, Jim Buckmaster; he states (in relation to the "Fair" Housing lawsuit) that the "community-moderated commons run by and for its users, who self-publish and manage their own ads and use a flagging system to police the site."

It's this 'self policing' that have allowed the Flaggers free rein to abuse the system and get posts NOT violating the TOU removed. If indeed this "Community-moderated commons" is self policed, why is it that employees of CL are banning IP addresses, handles, and deleting posts of those individuals who oppose the majority of the Flaggers and what they stand for?

Are they infact not, "eroding important free speech" (again taken from the "Fair" housing lawsuit - stated by CEO, Jim Buckmaster). Do those who stand in opposition not have the right to voice that opposition to the actions of a select few?
