Doodley-Do Meme

Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent memes. You may have heard the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we try to credit the blog that we stole it from. We also provide a link to the victim's meme 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 this new meme or recently asked questions from a previously featured meme.  Cheers to all of us thieves!!!

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?

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?
Not really

5) Nancy maintains the official Sinatra family website, which includes a link to the site of Mia Farrow. Ms. Farrow was, briefly, Nancy's stepmother, and obviously they are still on good terms. Do you have a big, extended family?
Holy Cow, The Frichtel's are spread from New Jersey to CA! 

6) Nancy's music -- and posters -- were very popular with the troops during the Vietnam War. Nancy continues to return their loyalty and affection with her efforts on behalf of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund. Here's your chance to promote a cause that's near and dear to your heart. What charity gets your support?

7) Nancy hosts a Sirius radio show devoted to her father's music. Do you have a subscription to a satellite radio or podcast network?

8) Nancy has said that she and her sister Tina had a more comfortable relationship with their famous father than their late brother, Frank, Jr., did. Do you think it's easier for mothers to get along with their sons, while fathers have an easier time with their daughters?
I can't answer that.

9) Random question: Tonight's dinner is on us. Would you prefer to eat at a casual restaurant with exceptional food, or an exclusive restaurant with so-so food but a celebrity clientele?

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.  ( )
  • 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 ( )
  • 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. 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.

 Thank you if you joined me in prayer.

Changes In The Air


I just wanted to leave a little message here on my beloved GrapefruitJuicyfruit blog. Things are changing in my life. I am going to be more dedicated to writing, then to Sunday Stealing and Saturday 9, although, I will keep doing them, because I LOVE them! But my writing is going to be about so much more. I really think I can have a decent future in writing, and so, I moved over to  WordPress...  which I am not totally in love with, yet, but I want to move forward, mainly in writing. So, if you would like to keep up, please visit my new site.  500 words for 500 days. Thanks, and I hope you visit often, and comment that you are a fellow blogger. I too, will keep up with you!

Wednesday, April 20, 2016

Dear Lord, thank you so much for another day of life on Earth.  Thank you for another beautiful sunrise to enjoy.  Thank you for the wonderful sounds of nature, from the cool breeze brushing through the trees to the birds singing melodies.  You are a wonderful God, full of grace and mercy.  I praise you for allowing me another day to spend with my family.  I love you Father!  Amen.
“The flowers appear on the earth, the time of singing has come,and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land.”Song of Solomon 2:12

Dear Lord, I pray that you would give me strength to be strong for You in the world today.  Lord, you know the struggles that I will face today.  Be with me as I go through them.  Carry me if I am too weak to move.  If I stumble in them, forgive me Father.  When I succeed in them, I will praise You!  You are worthy of all praise and honor.  Amen.
“My flesh and my heart may fail,but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”Psalm 73:26

I guess you hear it enough, you start to believe it. But no, I am plenty good. I am the child of the One True King!

30 - Favorite city? Key West

Fool on the Hill

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: Fool on the Hill (1967)
Unfamiliar with today's song? We can't help you. The YouTube copyright police have removed the Beatles' version.

1) Friday was April Fool's Day. Did you pull any pranks? Did anyone put anything over on you?
Nope. It was a quiet day

2) The practice of playing tricks on one another on April 1 dates back at least to the 14th century and Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales includes a mention of it. Geoffrey Chaucer has been called England's greatest poet. Quote a bit of poetry for us. (It doesn't have to be English, or great.)
Roses are red...

3) Beatle Paul is a huge Elvis fan and is happy to own the bass that was played on Elvis' 1954 recording of "That's All Right, Mama." Tell us about one of your prized possessions.

4) In contrast to his easygoing persona, Sir Paul has been described by former band mate Ringo Starr as strong willed and "determined to get his own way." Do you consider yourself strong willed and determined? Or are you more easy going?
I am very easy going.

5) The Beatles once bought a Greek island, planning to live and record there, but sold it after a few months because it started to seem like a bad, expensive idea. Tell us about a purchase that gave you buyer's remorse.
I can't say that i recall any

6) Legend has it that the Beatles officially broke up in Disney World. John Lennon was staying at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort when he received and signed the court papers that dissolved the group. Have you ever conducted business while on vacation?

7) George Harrison loved puttering around in the garden and dedicated his autobiography to "gardeners everywhere." Do you have a green thumb?
I am pretty good at gardens!

I Don't Know How to Love Him

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: I Don't Know How to Love Him (1971)

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

1) This song is from Jesus Christ, Superstar. Though now a beloved classic, the play was controversial when it first premiered. Can you think of something else that originally made people uncomfortable, but went on to be accepted?

2) Jesus Christ, Superstar was originally developed as a "concept album," a collection of songs written to sequentially tell the story of The Crucifixion and Resurrection. Do you remember the first album you bought? Did you download it, listen to it on a CD player, your cassette deck, or record player?
my transistor 

3) When the album's songs were performed live in concert at the Pennsylvania Civic Arena, producers decided to stage it as a play and the rest, as they say, is history. Tell us about a really good idea you've had recently.
to wait til morning to clean up the living room.
we'll see how that works out tomorrow :)

4) Jesus Christ, Superstar is a truly international phenomenon. During a revival tour that began in 2011, it's been a hit with audiences in the United States, Canada, Britain, Ireland, Brazil, Hungary, India, New Zealand, Italy, France, Mexico, Chile, Bulgaria, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Iceland, Russia, Poland, Czech Republic, Greece, Australia, The Philippines, South Africa, Panama, Colombia, Croatia, Bolivia, The Netherlands and Portugal. Besides the United States, which of those countries have you visited?
Just Canada

5) Peeps are big sellers every Easter. Would you rather have yellow chicks or pink bunnies?
a big stinking milk chocolate bunny ;) 

6) Jelly beans are also popular this time of year. One theory says they were introduced in Boston during the 19th century. What else comes to mind when you think of Boston?

7) We've been talking a lot about sweets this morning. The only holiday that generates more candy sales is Halloween. When do you eat more candy: Easter or Halloween?
I'm diabetic. Rarely do I eat candy

8) Easter lilies will adorn many churches this Sunday. What's your favorite flower? 
Purple and yellow pansies

9) Easter is considered the season of rebirth. What makes you feel refreshed or rejuvenated?
A long hot shower.
