03/12/2007 11:48:16jim Our fruitless mulberry trees are exploding
About twice every minute, a bud seems to explode into a puff of smoke in our back yard.
This is going to be one heck of a sneezy season.
03/12/2007 10:46:28jim My Last Will
I am giving Sonny the properties and the truck. I'm giving Becky some money, and the car.
In the event, Sonny is not around, I would like Paul Spurling to be my executor, it should be extremely simple.
If he declines, Becky will be my executor.
I would like for my body to be donated to science. I do not want to be cremated. Thats would be a complete waste.
I have had several wills. This last one, of course will supercede them all. They are stored in my files under legal.
Time is running short for all of us.
I am not a doomsayer. But, we have had two world wars last century. Our weapons technology hopefully will never surpass our wisdom. However, waging war seems to be more of a business decision than a moral one to the powers that be. I would be surprised if civilization makes it through this century. It is a matter of time before some incredible bomb, bioweapon, or toxic substance is unleashed. The world has no shortage of stupidity.
I won't live to see it the end of this civilization..
At least, I hope not. My ex-wife, I would have thought , should have lived into her 70s. She's got months. I know my fuse is running short.
I know the technology for artificial lungs, and artificial bodies (body closets) was created in the 1950's.
The details should have been ironed out in 50 years. High school students should have been able to figure it out by now.
- If you supply the head with what it needs, it should live 100s of years. It has been done.
- If you bubble air through the blood, the blood will oxygenate. It has been done.
But for greed, power, or presevation of the endowed, we'll probably never know who has access to it, or if it even exist.
For whatever reason, preservation of life, any life, is not a priority to mankind. Life is easier to take than it is to preserve.
03/12/2007 06:10:45warren .Ive created a lot of interesting things.
Wowzer times like a million, you are one awesome dude. People should be raising eyebrows so much they have
sixpacks on their foreheads!! Seriously, youd be like a god in an Amish community, once the infuriatingly meddlesome
elders were out of the way ! Kudos to you .
03/09/2007 01:19:59jim Our first notary order came in tonight
It was 7pm, and it only took about 40 minutes.
I charged $20 since Becky and I are both (embaressingly) new to the notary field.
They must have found us in the yellow pages, somehow...
Whatever, I liked it A LOT!!!
The signer were a little crabby...they expected us to actually instruct them on how to fill out a Pensylvania Power of Attorney form. Wow..I could barely read it...haha.
I told them, as notary agents, our job was to simply verify, and optionally take an oath of a person signing a documents identity. That we weren't even supposed to read the document, and above all, we could not give legal advice.
Still, though, I gave my idea of what the form wanted. They thoroughly botched it. I think she may have typed it in!
Normally, whenever we get there, we would have charged $70 for the notary after 7pm.
03/06/2007 13:38:57jim Apologies to Everyone
1and1 who hosts this site, appearantly doesn't back up everything once a day.
So, we lost Jennifer's story, and several other extras that have been added since.
I guess thats what I get for $20 a month...lol
02/22/2007 17:50:28jim Check out your childs school
Be it home school or private, check it out yourself.
Do not take the word of the school, or the word of a parent associated with that school.
Take the word of someone else, outside of the school. See if its real!!!
A diploma isn't worth anything if noone recognizes it.
The following happened to a friend recently.
We had started talking about home schools.
I mentioned how I got into Odysseys site under Becky's sons name. I did this to check on his progress, and to help him with one of his classes.
My friend mentioned he had gotten into his daughter's site using her account number (with no password).
That sounded fishy, so I asked for one of his statements.
The statement looked like it was done by a beginner in Microsoft Office Word.
He had been sending his $175 checks every month to a school call "The Learning Source".
- True, they are a business in Clark County.
- True, they will take your check.
- And True, they're credits transfer to nowhere.
In other words, his daughter, who should be in the 11th grade, has not started the 9th grade yet!
We went to the location listed on the business license...it was vacant.
We went to another location listed on the statement...it was a PO BOX.
The girl at the Post Office Box place, said a lady came in once a month to pick up her checks.
What I'd like to say is, one of Becky's daughters attended a home school in Los Angeles, and she is still, technically a 9th grader, simply because, the school wasn't a school at all. It was business with no accreditation.
In other words, the chances for Becky's daughter to be successful, had been ruined early in life.
Don't waste your child's academic life!
Take 10 minutes out of your life to get a REAL reference from another school, about the school you want to enroll your child in. YOU MIGHT JUST BE SURPRISED!!!
As a note, when I went to CCSC in 1982
I found out credits from the community college would be cut in half if I had them transferred to UNLV.
However, if I transferred them to UCLA, and then to UNLV, they would not be cut.
Politics seems to be problem in the educational systems.

02/21/2007 10:44:38jim The Frontier is Going Away Forever
The New Frontier has been call a lot of names:
The Pair-O-Dice (1930), Ambassador Club (1936), 91 Club (1939), Last Frontier (1942), The New Frontier (1955), The Frontier (1967), The New Frontier (1999).
Sometime in July 2007, the Frontier will become The Lost Frontier.
The doors will close forever, and with them will go the last of the Howard Hughe's Casino icons.
Phil Ruffin, the Frontier's current owner, sold the New Frontier in May 2007 for $1.2 billion.
Please feel free to post your comments about the Frontier.
02/15/2007 21:50:45jim Talked to an old friend today.
He was babbling on about Bush, Cheney, and the Tri-State commission.
According to him, Al Kaida has been at Camp David.
Also, the Tri-State commission is planning on blowing up nukes in 5 major cities with the next year.
The goal would be to call a Marshall Law in for a minimum of 6 months, bring in the international police, and kill over 80% of the US population.
The point would be to free the world from the ignorant, lazy and freeloading populations.
All I can say is...WOW!!!
I heard the same thing from a bum in Denver last year.
Now, if all this were the case, I suppose I would go to Florida, walk 10' off of the highway in any direction and get lost, then eat fruits, berries, and crocidile eggs. Of course, the World Police might gas the swamps, but at least I'd stand a chance. LOL.
All I know is, we Americans are obviously being lied to by the press. Why, well, I wouldn't even try to guess.
If we can't take over a country the size of Arizona, with billions of dollars and high technology in our favor, our military people suck. I know Bush's buddies made out to the tune of billions. AND THAT, I believe is treason.
And Clinton got impeached for a blow job, while Bush is a mass murderer for hire.
When I mentioned this to Sonny, he asked me,
Jim, doesn't this guy have any nice things to talk about....
02/14/2007 22:03:50jim Not much going on here
My coding on the notary system looks complete. There's a lot of junk test in it though.
I've been burning the midnight oil, so to speak, getting everything for it all together for my first demo.
The flyer, the business cards and the the system itself looks great.
I put together (well, I kind of borrowed) an Independant Contractors agreement and modified it, early this morning.
Everything looks pretty darned good.
Also happening, the condo is rented.
The tenants are responsible people, who both work for an old folks home. They have a 17 year old daughter too.
Its nice to deal with people who have checking accounts, vehicles and credit cards!
