High Noon.

High Noon

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!
Saturday 9: High Noon (1952) Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here. 1) What will you be (or were you) doing at high noon on Saturday? Starting to clean the yard... OR, finishing. I can't think of plants because although its 70, its going to snow again next week
2) In this song, Tex Ritter sings he doesn't know what fate awaits him. How strong is your sense of intuition? Tell us about a time you knew what would happen before it occurred. My second marriage. Too much shit was being pulled that I wasn't 'supposed' to even know about. I knew I couldn't live that way much longer
3) This song was the theme of a hit movie western by the same name. It starred Gary Cooper as a small-town sheriff. When did you last interact with a member of law enforcement? The sheriff held the door for me at the post office a few days ago. Dang, he is EASY on the eyes!
4) Grace Kelly co-starred as the "fair-haired beauty" mentioned in this song. Four years later, she gave up films to become Her Serene Highness, Princess Grace of Monaco. Which job seems like more fun -- movie star or royal? Movie star!
5) Though he cultivated a "just plain folk" persona, this week's featured artist, Tex Ritter, was really cosmopolitan and highly educated, earning a degree in economics from the University of Texas before going on to study pre-law at Northwestern. Do you think the "real you" is consistent with the image you convey?
Not by a long shot!
6) Tex Ritter was the father of Emmy-winning comedic actor, John Ritter. John is remembered fondly as the voice of Clifford, the Big Red Dog. Clifford appeals to children because he is "gentle, friendly, loyal, lovable and clumsy." Do any of those adjectives apply to you? I have red hair!! 
7) Tex is also the grandfather of Jason Ritter, star of ABC-TV's Kevin (Probably) Saves the World. If you followed one of your grandparents into their line of work, what would you be doing? Grandpa Frichtel was a baker! My grandma and grandpa Dugan worked for the B&O 
8) In 1952, the year "High Noon" was popular, Stopette, the first antiperspirant deodorant spray, was introduced. Do you use a deodorant spray, stick or roll on? I use GEL  Antiperspirant and deodorant. Soft and Dri. 1. 75 at Dollar General
9) Random question: What's something you have always wanted to own, but never have?
Goats

Sweet Disaster

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme! Sweet Disaster (2016) Unfamiliar with this week's song. Hear it here.


 1) This video begins outside a convenience store with a sign advertising beer, produce, lotto and an ATM. Will you buy beer, produce or a lotto ticket this weekend? Will you visit an ATM?
No on the beer, yes to the produce and no to the lottery. And no to the ATM.
1


2) As the video progresses, fountain drinks and donuts are consumed. When you stop for a snack during a road trip, what do you usually grab?
Dunkin and a powdered sugar donut. BUT... I am on day 2 without sugar. 

3) The lyrics reference "a river of champagne." When did you last enjoy a spot of the bubbly?
2001. Boy I wish I had that entire day to do over again...
Wanaka-new-zealand-lake-wallpaper-Hd-1920x1440


4) The end of the video features sci-fi/horror images. Is that a genre you enjoy? If not, what kind of books do you read most often?
Oh crap, I forgot to pick up a book for my husband and I while I was out today. I think about genre of books, kind of books about life, are what I like. Jodi Picoult and the like. My husband likes any book you set before him. 

3


5) The trio that makes up The Dreamers are dyed-in-the-wool New Yorkers. If you could live in any city or village in the world, would you move or stay right where you are?
I love looking at Zillow, for perhaps my 'final move' in the next few years. I have temporarily settled on Cape Hatteras. Its a few years away, and with God's blessing...for now, I think that is it. ALTHOUGH, I would really like to have some family nearby. I don't know if in a few years my  cousins Mary Lou and Susan will be in Florida. My cousin Felicia lives 1/2 a year in Clearwater, and my step daughter lives in Fort Myers. Where will my sister and her husband be?  I get a rapid heart beat when I think about it, but then I have to stop and realize its not tomorrow. 
4


6) The Dreamers describe themselves as "impractical."  What about you? Do you consider yourself practical or impractical? Impractical. I don't prioritize,  I act on a whim, too often, and you know, there is still that sociopath part of me that I deal with. I have no impulse control. BUT, I am doing research and writing on MINDFULNESS. I'm not doing much better, but I have a funny feeling this is going to take a long while. 2 years? idk. 
5


7) They also won't "listen to those who doubt" them. Sometimes we find the ones who doubt us most are ourselves. What about you? Are you confident, or do you suffer from self doubt? Peruse #6. I think I am a sociopath with impulse control!!!  Lots of self doubt. 
6


8) Do you often remember your dreams? Always. 
7


9) Random question: Would you rather get $100 today, or $250 on this date a year from now?
I'll take the $250 and wait it out. :)

Danny Boy

Danny Boy

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!
Saturday 9: Danny Boy (1956)
"Danny Boy" was selected in honor of St. Patrick's Day. Unfamiliar with this week's song? Hear it here. 1) This is a sad song of farewell. Who is the last person you said "goodbye" or "so long" to? Brenden, as he headed to Florida yesterday morning.
2) According to the 2000 Census, Massachusetts is the state with the largest percentage of residents of Irish descent. Have you ever been to The Bay State? Yes I have. I love it there.
3) "The wearing o' the green" is one way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Will you wear something green in honor of the day? Probably. My sis and I are going to a Kegs and Eggs breakfast tomorrow !
4) What color makes you look best? Im a fatty. Black
5) Will you drink something green in honor of the day (like a Shamrock shake or a green beer)? All I can say about drinking something green is YUCK!
6) A four-leaf clover is considered good luck. Do you have a lucky charm? At 59, as I look back on my life... apparently NOT. 
7) Though she's singing an Irish ballad, this week's featured artist, Joni James, is of Italian heritage. Can you think of a song as identified with Italy as "Danny Boy" is with Ireland? Idk. My off the Italy boat uncle has been in a barbershop quartet for the past 80 years. One of his favorites is Danny Boy
8) Soda bread and potato bread are popular in Ireland. Are there any rolls or bread in your kitchen right now? I think there is a hot dog bun in the bowl for the birds....
9) Ireland is known for its whiskey. Do you enjoy Irish coffee (black coffee, whiskey and whipped cream)?
I have never had it. Maybe THAT could be my Lucky Drink!!

Write from Karen

Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on the WTIT Blog with Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of questions from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent questions. You may have heard the expression, “honor among thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we try to credit the blog that we stole it from, if possible. We also provide a link to the victim's questions in our "Previous Victims" widget. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") Sometimes we edit the original meme, to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, to select the best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from recently asked questions from a previously post. Cheers to all of us thieves!
These questions from Karen at Write from Karen.  Karen is married and mom of two grown sons.  She says, "I believe in Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Writing Well. (I also believe in our Constitution – Don’t Tread on my Rights, Yo)" 1. What’s the coolest item you’ve found at a garage sale, flea market, etc? I haven't been to any of the above for years. BUT... summer's coming!
download
2. Describe how your day went yesterday. Well, we didn't have family breakfast. I blame myself for not checking on or with my sister during the week. I did stop at her house though, today, to take her a shamrock plant, but she wasn't home.      I took Brenden, Paul's grandson, to Flynns to get new tires  and whatever else guys do at Flynns.... I do want to give a shout out to them though... about 3 weeks ago I had a slow leak in my tire. They fixed it for just 20. and said its guaranteed for LIFE. Brenden went to NTB for his auto things and they wanted 1000. I suggested Flynns last night, but you know kids. Well, he came home from NTB and said, would you follow me to Flynns, I  should have listened to you first. Flynns was only 600. I felt 'smart' for 2.6 seconds.
download (1) 3. Do you have issues with people entering your personal space? What do you do when your personal space is violated? Yes, I have trouble with people being in my space. They tend to not only INVESTIGATE my desk, my email, my shit....but they leave it, and I have to rearrange my mess!!! 
images 4. What is the one meal recipe you think you’ve mastered? Nothing. I suck at cooking. BUT I did make my grandma's chop suey last week. With a bit of tweeking, I could master THAT. 
Mushroom-Chop-Suey-Recipe-4x3 5.  If you could take back something you did to someone, what would it be? From my cousin Susan. And I'd really rather not give the details. Oh... and Mrs. Jones. I was a horrible child. Oh... and Mrs Haan. 
download (2) 6. Would you describe yourself as spiritual, religious, or something else? I am a follower of Christ.
images (1) 7. Did you ever receive detention in school? What sort of kid were you in school – bookworm, smart kid, troublemaker, quiet … etc. Well, affirmative on the detention. I was a talker. 
26113934_927336804084977_1381982239916522375_n 8. When’s the last time you ran a mile? How often do you exercise? Ran? well I have never run. Due to the boot for life on my left foot, I haven't done anything in awhile. Walking, is my exercise of choice. 
images (2) 9. What would you say to your 16-year-old self, and why? STOP seeking attention from the boys. Listen to gram and SLOW DOWN on the ice cream. And don't think so poorly of yourself. FINISH college when you get there, and marriage? Wait.... til your 50
images (3) 10. What are you avoiding? Getting my knees replaced. But, its too far to the point of ignoring it anymore. Walking for me is hell. I should tell my 16 year old self to not enjoy eating so much. And don't be a baker. You'll end up a lard ass. "Crisco...fat in the can", as my dad used to say.
images (4) 11. Describe a “Hah! I told you so” moment you had recently. This morning, with Brenden going to Flynns ;) 
download (3) 12. What’s more important, where you live or what you do for a living? Why? What you do for a living. Make that money and save and spend wisely, then when you get to the point you can do  your job better than anyone, pick a place where you can take that skill and live where you love. 
images (5) 13. Swear words: Are you pro or con? Why? Well, as a Christian, I should be con. BUT I have always questioned 'Why' are certain words swear words. Shit, for example... I revisit that word at least once a day! Damn. Hell. Idk. 
images (6) 14. Paper or plastic? Do you prefer to pack your own groceries? HELL no, I don't like to pack my own groceries. But I do it at Aldis. But, I prefer paper, personally. But Brenden can hook all my plastics onto his arms and make one trip!!
download (4) 15. Do you have a shoe fetish? How often do you buy new shoes? Do you ever get rid of a pair of shoes?
I have a ton of shoes. In fact, I keep buying new ones, but I can only wear ONE shoe. So I've stopped buying and  took quite a few pair to the Rescue Mission. When I am bootless, I'll shop again.

From Smellyann

 
Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on the WTIT Blog with Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of questions from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent questions. You may have heard the expression, “honor among thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we try to credit the blog that we stole it from, if possible. We also provide a link to the victim's questions in our "Previous Victims" widget.

Sometimes we edit the original meme, to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, to select the best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from recently asked questions from a previously post. Cheers to all of us thieves!




Here are some questions Smellyann found on Pinterest.
(Thanks!)




1. What is more difficult for you, looking into someone’s eyes when you are telling someone how you feel, or looking into someone’s eyes when they are telling you how they feel.
I wish I had an answer for this. I don't .... well, I don't think I have a hard time with either. Took me a minute to remember the last, well the only time, that has happened. 
2.  Think of the last time you were REALLY angry.  WHY were you angry?  Do you still feel the same way?
Its been a long while since I've been angry, and God put His hand on that and took it from me. I now realize that I have to hand my anger over to God, before I make myself batty. 
3.  You are on a flight from Honolulu to Chicago non-stop. There is a fire in the back of the plane.  You have enough time to make one phone call. Who do you call?  What do you tell them?
I call my sister, and tell her that if she didn't already know, I love her with all of my heart. And I ask her to call a list of people and tell them the same thing. 
4.  You are at the doctor’s office and she has just informed you that you have approximately one month to live.  Do you tell anyone/everyone you are going to die? What do you do with your remaining days? Would you be afraid?
Well, I don't WANT to tell anyone...but I'm a jabberjaw, so I probably will. But ideally, I would not tell anyone, and spend one entire day and night with the people that I love the most. 
5.  You can have one of the following two things.  Which do you choose?  Why?  Love and Trust.
Trust. I lost it in 2006. And just for a time, I'd like to remember what it felt like. 
6.  You are walking down the street on your way to work.  There is a dog drowning in the canal on the side of the street.  Your boss has told you that if you are late just one more time you are fired. Do you take the time to save the dog’s life?  Why? Why not?
Save the dog. There are other jobs. 
7.  Would you rather be hurt by the one you trust the most or the one you love the most?
I can't say. I have been through the wringer with both. I couldn't handle it again. 
8.  Your best friend confesses that he/she has feelings for you more than just friendship.  He/she is falling in love with you.  What do you (or did you) say?
Okay, my best friend better be a guy. If its same sex, FORGET IT. I've had that with a guy. It all works out in the end. 
9.  Think of the last person you know who died.  You have the chance to give them 1 hour more of life back, but you have to give up one year of yours.  Do you do it?  Why? Or Why not?
This is tough.  They are already gone... I'd have to live through losing them again. 
10.  Are you the kind of friend that you would want to have as a friend?
Not lately . 
11.  Does love = sex   not that I recall. 
12.  Your boss tells your co-worker that they have to let them go because of work shortage, and they are the newest employee.  You have been there much longer.  Your co-worker has a family to support and no other means of income.  Do you go to your boss and offer to leave the company?  Why or Why not.
No. No one is supporting me, so ... I have to look out for myself.  ew, do I sound selfish. 
13.  When was the last time you told someone HONESTLY how you felt regardless of how difficult it was for you to say?  What did you have to tell the person?
Its hard for me to talk about that. He shot himself last fall.
14.  What would be (or what was) harder for you to tell a member of the opposite/same sex – you love them or that you do not love them back.
I am not sure if I have ever .... thought about that. I don't say I love you much. A few times a day with my husband. When I didn't love someone back, I usually just walked away. 
sounds like I'm bordering on being a sociopath!!!!!

The Love Club

The Love Club

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we’ve committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do “random questions,” so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don’t have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today’s meme!
The Love Club (2013)
Unfamiliar with this week’s song. Hear it here.
1) Lorde has said this song is about a time when she fell into “a bad crowd.” Her high-maintenance new friends were all about their romantic dramas and it overwhelmed her. Have you ever had a friend who was just too much work?
Yes. We don’t see much of each other.
2) She sings that she longs to be alone. Where do you go when you want peace and quiet?
My life IS peace and quiet, for the most part
3) Lorde credits her mother for encouraging her verbal skills. “Mum” let her join a theater class when she was just 5 and was always giving her books. Tell us about an encouraging, understanding adult who assisted you when you were growing up.
My grandma Dugan. I miss  her so much. 
4) Lorde is not the only celebrity from her class at Belmont School in Auckland, New Zealand. Olympian Eliza McCartney was a classmate who went on to win a bronze medal in Rio for the pole vault. Did you participate in any sports in high school?
noooooooooooooooooooooo 
6) Lorde wrote music for one of the Hunger Gamessoundtracks. Have you seen any of the Hunger Games movies, or read any of the books?
I am not aware of seeing any. The guys watch so many movies, but I just read or play a game on my phone. 
7) Her favorite candy is Peanut M&Ms. Do you prefer Milk Chocolate, Peanut, Almond, Mint or Cripsy M&Ms?
Almond. And, although you didn’t mention it, Peanut Butter. 
8) When Lorde was on stage at Lollapalooza, a sudden storm interrupted her set. The music festival was evacuated and her performance was cancelled. Can you think of a time when the weather had a major impact on your plans?
Seriously I live in Ohio. You know, its snowing when we get up, sunny by mid day, and raining in the evening… or you could change them anyway you want to. So no, weather doesn’t ruin plans.
9) Random question: Please complete this sentence — Before I leave the house, I always __kiss my husband and dogs (not always in that order ;))

Saturday 9: Happy Holidays! (from the archives) 
1. As you can see, Sam loved giving her annual wish list to Santa. Yet some children are reluctant to climb into Jolly Old St. Nick’s lap. Did you enjoy the tradition or were you shy?

2. Are you currently on the Naughty or Nice list? How did you get there?
Nice, because I have no life!!! hahahah

I didn’t. I didnt even send cards! 
4. Did you buy yourself a gift this year?
Nope. 
5. What’s your favorite holiday-themed movie? Have you seen it yet this year?
The Grinch and I haven’t 
6. Thinking of movies, Christmas is lucrative for Hollywood. Have you ever gone to a movie theater on Christmas Day?
My second husband is Jewish. I believe we went to  see a movie on Christmas when we lived in Whittier (CA)
7. Have you ever suffered an embarrassing moment at the company Christmas party?
Heck no! I was young and NOTHING was embarrassing!!
8. What’s your favorite beverage in cold weather?
DD Hot Cocoa 
9. Share a memory from last Christmas
Last Christmas, nothing. My husband had just come home from rehab after back surgery. I’m sure we had a ham!! But it was quiet, and he slept most of the time.

15.  Did you thank anybody today? A young man, last week, left me a 20 . tip for a five dollar ride. Today I looked up his address and sent him a thank you note. He told me ‘here, let me help you with your gas today’. God sends angels into my world everyday.

These Boots Were Made for Walkin'

 
Welcome to Saturday 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme! 

Saturday 9: These Boots Were Made for Walkin' (1966)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) In this song/video, Ms. Sinatra's boots make a serious fashion statement. Do you choose footwear for comfort or fashion?
Comfort! 

2) This is by far the biggest hit of Nancy Sinatra's career, which includes 6 top ten hits. Can you name another?
No clue!

3) Nancy recorded it on Reprise Records, which was founded by her father, Frank. Did your parents give you a leg up in your chosen career?
No. My parents were never supportive. My dad liked that I was a baker, like his dad was.

4) Professionally Nancy has been involved in espionage, singing the theme to a James Bond movie and appearing in an episode of The Man from UNCLE. Do you enjoy spy/secret agent stories?

I PULLED OVER AND WEPT…my heart is breaking FOR HELP WITH YOUR ADDICTION PLEASE CALL 1-888-988-6843 Post 16.   500/500   5.4.16 bsddheroinnnn   A new generation is turning to synthetic drugs, which contain added chemicals, instead of the more natural high of a drug. Not only does it give a bigger high, but these synthetic drugs are cheap to make, which then makes them cheaper to buy. Tara Fitzgerald decided to take LSD one night and ended up dying to a stroke caused by the drug. The story has been told around the country in order to enlighten teens of the dangers of consuming a product with unknown ingredients.

 This new and ever evolving world of ours is evolving our children into the depths of Hell, and taking newborn/unborn children with them. As I watch from afar because she hates me, again, my niece 25 carry her third child while abusing heroin. 3rd Heroin baby she has had, this one has had no prenatal care and is due in July. My hands are tied. My heart is broken… I am 57 and in my lifetime, I have experimented with more than I care to admit. I think pot and speed were my favorite, but then I grew up. I had 4 step kids, I had 4 nieces, and I left all those things in my past. I never thought of taking anything, even drinking for most of my life! But that is me, and I have to say, Thank You Lord, for taking my hand and ‘growing me up’!! At 57, most all of my friends have left that lifestyle behind, but I have more than I care to think about that just can’t shake that drinking! That is celebrating, or having fun, or dare I say, an addiction? I am quite sure if I polled the people, NOT ONE would admit to being an alcoholic, but if I asked if they could go perhaps 3 months…or 3 weeks, without a drink, they might see what I and others see. You think its fitting in, or having fun, but ask your kids. You taught them to do it, yet they are still embarrassed by you. But my topic is not addiction, its heroin. Its meth, its bath salts, its death. Here are some sickening truths …
  • In 2011, 4.2 million Americans aged 12 or older (or 1.6 percent) had used heroin at least once in their lives. It is estimated that about 23 percent of individuals who use heroin become dependent on it.
  • Heroin can be injected, inhaled by snorting or sniffing, or smoked. All three routes of administration deliver the drug to the brain very rapidly, which contributes to its health risks and to its high risk for addiction, which is a chronic relapsing disease caused by changes in the brain and characterized by uncontrollable drug-seeking no matter the consequences.
  • Heroin overdoses frequently involve a suppression of breathing. This can affect the amount of oxygen that reaches the brain, a condition called hypoxia. Hypoxia can have short- and long-term psychological and neurological effects, including coma and permanent brain damage.
  • Most recently, 2014 has seen the highest number of drug overdose deaths on record, reaching nearly50,000 in a single year.4 Opioids – which may include both prescription pain relievers and heroin – have accounted for 61% of all drug overdose deaths in this same year.  (http://luxury.rehabs.com/heroin-addiction/death-mortality-rates/ )
  • Viral hepatitis is spread through contact with infected blood or body fluids such as semen and saliva. For this reason, injection drug users are at highest risk for contracting hepatitis B and C – both viruses of the liver. If left untreated, these viral infections may become chronic and eventually lead to death (https://www.drugabuse.gov/related-topics/viral-hepatitis-very-real-consequence-substance-use )
  • Shaking violently in a hospital crib, two tiny legs twitch and shudder uncontrollably.
  • Wailing, muscle clenching and gasping for breath accompany the disturbing fit-like seizure.
  • While for most newborns the first precious weeks of life are full of love, care and adoration, for babies born addicted to drugs their first weeks are long, agonizing and distressing as they battle neonatal abstinence syndrome.

 In other words, their precious, innocent lives begin with seizures, shaking, drug dependence and withdrawal. What loving mother does that to their child? Too many. [gallery ids="475,480" type="rectangular"] Today I was driving home from the grocery store, and I heard a news story on HLN xm. I pulled over to write down important things, such as Bath Salts- “Bath salts” is the name given to a family of drugs that have one or more man made chemicals related to cathinone. Cathinone is an amphetamine-like stimulant found naturally in the khat plant. Chemically, they are similar to other amphetamines such as methamphetamine and to MDMA (Ecstasy or Molly). Common manmade cathinones found in bath salts include 3,4-methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV), mephedrone (“Drone,” “Meph,” or “Meow Meow”), and methyl-one, but there are many others. Bath salts are usually white or brown crystal-like powder and are sold in small plastic or foil packages labeled “Not for Human Consumption.” Sometimes labeled as “plant food”—or, more recently, as “jewelry cleaner” or “phone screen cleaner”—they are sold online and in drug product stores. These names or descriptions have nothing to do with the product. It’s a way for the drug makers to avoid detection by the Drug Enforcement Administration or local police. [gallery ids="484,476" type="rectangular"] The man made cathinone products sold as “bath salts” should not be confused with Epsom salts (the original bath salts), which are made of a mineral mixture of magnesium and sulfate and are added to bathwater to help ease stress and relax muscles. Use of bath salts sometimes causes severe intoxication (a person seems very drunk or “out of it”) and dangerous health effects. There are also reports of people becoming psychotic (losing touch with reality) and violent. Although it is rare, there have been several cases where bath salts have been the direct cause of death. In addition, people who believe they are taking drugs such as MDMA (Molly or Ecstasy) may be getting bath salts instead. Methylone, a common chemical in bath salts, has been substituted for MDMA in capsules sold as Molly in some areas. Bath salts drug dangers and Side effects are some of the most dangerous with regards to the designer drugs. You know what is worse? You can buy synthetic drugs over the internet for around $30.00. they are not illegal to purchase because you can buy them under a label saying  “not intended for human consumption”. Thirty bucks. They are sold in China, and not illegal over there, so its that easy. http://www.kentuckylawjournal.org/index.php/2015/02/22/not-for-human-consumption/ I lost it today. I feel like I am watching my precious niece just kill herself. Not really watching because she won’t have any contact with me. I have written to her, begged her, threatened her… I don’t know where she is, or I would rat her out!! I don’t know why the people in her life have not done this. SHE NEEDS HELP! But yet no one who can locate her would do it. It’s a damn shame watching and worrying about every phone call that might be someone making ‘that call’.

 If you pray, I would ask that you would pray for her. I know God can work miracles! I know she knows Him. I know I know I know, but none of my knowledge, just bringing her before the Lord, can work for her now. I once read a meme that said “Don’t try and quit cold turkey. You have to re-learn how to live, how to function, how to deal with tough days and have hard consequences. You can’t learn these things if you ‘just quit’. It’s a process. It’s a new way of life. Its something new you must learn … again”. Dear Heavenly Father, I come to you bringing my niece, bringing her  to Your Feet, and praying Lord that You would intervene and grab a  hold of her. Put your loving arms around that little boy, and protect him from what he is going to be born into. Protect him from these drugs, alcohol, cigarettes… I beg of You Lord, to take her life into Your protection and do what is necessary for that baby to be taken to a doctor. To stop her from killing herself, her other 2 children and this precious unborn baby. I give her to You. I give all of our addicted family and friends to You, and ask that You would pull them from this Hell in a way that only You can do it. I give You my life, my heart and Lord, use me in any way that You need me to help. I ask that You hear everyone that is praying for her, and for the ones in their lives , and bless them, change them, love them. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
