Ebola, enough already!

         Well, I know by now you have all heard your share of news on the Ebola virus that has entered the United States.  I'm also pretty sure that many of you feel the way I do when I say...How the heck could this have been allowed to happen? I live in a suburb just outside of Dallas.
The fear we all felt and some still feel in the North Texas area is REAL! 
           Yeah sure, we've all been told all the ways you can NOT catch the virus, but then we see infected nurses fly on airplanes or infected doctors decided that even though they feel a little sick and have been around Ebola carrying people, that its perfectly ok to go bowling the night before they check into the hospital.  And well, there's nothing to worry about, but wait, entire buildings are being quarantined, entire flight lists are being searched for and being watched.
          Look, I'm not an alarmist actually, my fear is not really even the disease itself, it's the miscommunication and disregard that I've been noticing from the healthcare workers and government entities.  We just need a set of rules that will keep all who work with Ebola patients under some kind of blanket of rules and restrictions that THEY MUST FOLLOW! Oh, it's great that they want to save the world, one Ebola patient at a time, but what's not good, is that all these health care workers are taking their knowledge and health for granted and that they couldn't possibly be posing a risk to the general public. Well, how about this, DON'T take that chance with us. You put your own health at risk, that's fine, that's your choice, but I didn't chose to save the world and cure Ebola! I don't want you to expose me or my children, or anyone in my family.  How do we know that you didn't poke your nose or rub your eye before you grabbed that bowling ball or door knob?
            Just stay home, if you end up being cleared and healthy, then great, join us as we fly to and from Dallas. Join us as we take our kids out to bowling alleys, OTHERWISE, stay AWAY.
I think its safe to bet that I speak for the general public when I say that we would rather be safe than sorry!


When you hate your neighbors

Yep, I said it! I HATE my neighbors, and I'm not talking about just one, I'm talking about 98% of the households that surround mine.
             It's ridiculous. They are our worst nightmare! One of the couples is an oversharing pair of adulterers, parking space taking bunch of alley beer drinkers!
Another couple are possibly the neediest people I know. They always ask for help, either moving furniture, or help dog sitting, or cat sitting. I finally said NO!
            Another couple we have to listen to is an Asian couple who seem to have no problem fighting in public, and I'm talking fist to face not just yelling and arguing. They whip their teenaged kids where ever they misbehave...like the alley. We have neighbors that live across the street from us who have about 6 adults living in one home. Needless to say, they like to take our parking spots as well.
           I absolutely hate this neighborhood. I wish more than anything that we could move to a home with a great piece of land where we can park our food truck and not worry about our parking spot, or our Home Owners Association.  Wait, I didn't mention how much I hate our HOA? Oh. Well, yes, yes I hate our HOA!
           We pay quarterly fees to an HOA, just to drive around our neighborhood and see rotting fences, abandoned foreclosures, lawns that need so much maintenance that the lawn company who would contract that home would become rich!

I wish we could move, its just not possible right now, but, I'm not giving up hope!
Ugh, and that was my Monday morning vent!


I found the song I lost over 20 years ago!

I'm excited! No! I'm ecstatic! I'm about to burst with joy! 
I found a song. Not just any song, a song who I have no name for, no artist name not even the year it hit the radio, but I have it! Thanks to today's technology and the magical world of YOUTUBE!  I found this damn song that I had given up hope of ever finding again. It's been so long since I've heard it that I even forgot how it went! I couldn't even hum you the song, but, I knew it was a song that I absolutely LOVED! 

Oh man! I posted to two different people on my facebook about how excited I am to have found it! 

Here is the link! Please listen to it! I'm going to listen to it on and endless loop until I get tired of it. 
Hey! I've got to make up for time lost...don't judge me! Haha
