MORE STUFF YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW

Usually my spammy comments on the blog invite me to reach out to spiritual advisors, voodoo doctors to cure my barrenness, guaranteed riches, or to cast a spell on a nonexistent cheating spouse.  When I say usually, it means I'm bombarded with pretty darn lengthy instructions that I have to delete fairly regularly once I've stopped laughing.


Recently things took a slight turn in topic when Cristina Trevor from Italy included me in a plea for boys and girls to join the Porn Industry by sharing a few naked pics at beatenblood2@gmail.com.  If you click on Cristina's name, you'll see what looks to be a fake picture on Google with close to 1200 views, and I was tempted to send an email  with a picture of a cat to see what would actually happen. (lol) Meanwhile,  even if I looked like  Beyonce, Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) or Sofia Vergara, that would be a hard NO THANKS, Cristina.(lol)

HALLOWEEN DECORATING
It's Season 8 of Halloween Wars on The Food Network, and once again I'm shocked and impressed at the amazing ways these artists come up with frightening ways to scare us and the judges.  Can you imagine actually digging around inside of a humongous pumpkin like this one? (lol)
Six teams each consist of a sculptor, sugar artist and cake decorator as they work on winning the grand prize of $50,000.  No calories here, I promise.(lol)  Are you good at carving pumpkins?

SOUTH DAKOTA
Mount Rushmore started being sculpted in 1927, and was finished in 1941. That sure is a long time, right? The cost to build this famous piece was a little over $1 million dollars, and every year is visited by 3 million people.



Walt Disney World opened for the first time on October 1, 1971, and they were slammed with a little over 400,000 visitors!  It's unbelievable, but admission back then for adults was just $3.50, and kids were only charged $1.  These days, if you don't score discounts or package deals, prices can be as high as $105 per adult. YIKES!

BEST KEPT SECRET
If you like to play quick mini games(nothing major or time consuming) AND win name brand prizes, one of a kind merch and cash, you're going to love this app that not many people know about.    With a 4.5 out of 5 rating, almost no one has anything bad to say about this Apple app.  Download Suprize, and win concert tickets, jackets, baby items, beauty products and lots more which "drop" all day, every day.  Be sure to come back to tell us what you won!

LOVING THE LIBRARY
Are you like me, and can't get enough of books?  You can save yourself lots of time, space and money by downloading  https://meet.libbyapp.com/. This app lets you borrow thousands of ebooks or audiobooks without the need for any extra equipment.  It even keeps track of your books, and allows you to sample a book first.   All you need is your library card, a comfy couch and a yummy cheeseburger to set the mood.


FARMERS RULE
Do you have a Farmer's Market where you live?  If so, wait until it rains to head out for a visit and to really save.  A Farmer's market probably doesn't have refrigerators to keep all that produce fresh, and their time is limited to sell it all.  So instead of letting it go to waste while waiting for dry weather, they can still make some income by selling it to customers at a discount.


KUDOS
My friend Elizabeth has once again shown off her artistic talent and creativity by sending me  all this adorable black and white washi tape that I simply adore. Most everyone knows I love Washi Tape, but great designs done in black are hard to find. I'm already working on using a black, white and silver theme for the month of January in my 2019 Planner! Can you see me doing the Happy Dance and thanking Elizabeth?
Hey There Elizabeth and thanks again!

Santa Clara Police Department
KINDNESS IS KEY
Sixteen year old Rhami Zeini of Santa Barbara California was definitely raised properly and understands the importance of doing the right thing.  




On September 16 while driving home from school, he spotted a purse lying in the middle of the road.  He got out of his vehicle, checked the bag for identification, and received the surprise of his life.  There was $10,000 cash inside, which was the largest amount of money he'd ever seen at one time.  He took it home to show his parents, then they all delivered the purse to the local police.  The police did find the rightful owner, who rewarded the 11th grader with $100. 
Rhemi said that if the roles were reversed, he would hope someone would do the same thing.  The owner believed that she had left her purse on the hood before driving off, and was very grateful.

If you need a quick snack with low calories, hold out until Wednesday, October 10, and celebrate National Angel Food Cake Day, all day long.  Of course, if you don't care about calories, add all kinds of chocolate sauce and other treats too! (lol)

  4. I've gotten a bunch of bitcoin spam lately. As soon as I see it, I delete it. I know how to say NO thanks, too.

    Did you know that Mt. Rushmore was originally created to increase tourism in the Badlands? The governor at the time the project was started wanted to bring more people to the state and thought it was a good idea.

    Disney World is a really funny story. Disney was secretly buying land around Orlando through dummy companies. He was hoping to have a LOT more land than what was available in Anaheim, CA. Although he died before Disney World was completed, his brother kept the project alive. Actually, they were expecting a LOT more through the gate the first day they opened. They had hired thousands of temporary employees to handle the first day, and were really disappointed and sent many home telling them not to come back the next day. Once they added the Epcot Center and other areas, they became one of the most visited places in the country.

    So glad you like the washi tape, RO. You always give me inspiration, so thanks for the lovely compliment.

    1. Dear Elizabeth, if I ever get back to Kansas, I sure hope you have hours and hours to talk.(lol) The stuff you know is pretty amazing, and would make my trivia box so happy. I also spy a chance to finally get on Jeopardy!(lol) I always learn something really neat from you, and of course your witty sense of humor would have me laughing out loud. The Washi Tape is already at work for January 2019, which has a black, white and silver color theme thanks to you! You are truly the best, and I appreciate you so much! Hugs and Happy Tuesday! 2 paws up right back to my buddy Bluebeard! RO

  10. Spammy comments can sometimes make your day to be honest. I had one about how to remove warts on your face and how to dispose of said warts to ensure they wouldn't come back.


    I'm going to have to try that Libby app as soon as I renew my library card! I'm hoping I can get to try some books that have been on my list for years. My library doesn't have that great of a selection.

    Hope you're having a good week! :D

    1. I agree, the things I've seen made me laugh AND blush, but it's just time consuming to get rid of. Let me know how it works with Libby. Wow, things sure have changed. I've had the same card for years, and never had to renew it. That's the pits! Hope all is well and that your appointment worked out okay. Hugs and Happy Friday! RO

  11. The porn industry spam had me laughing, I haven't had anything as bad.
    The library app seems great, will have to see if it works with the Australian libraries.
    So great of Rhami to return the purse, I think he deserved a bit more than $100 tough...

  12. that was a nice story about the boy and the purse, I don't know if I would have done the same, that's a lot of money!

    sadly, i've never receive any interesting spam other than asking me to give money...

    have a lovely day.

    1. I can imagine a lot of people would have been tempted to keep all that cash, but I believe in karma, so I would have definitely given it back for sure.(lol) The spam I get is truly over the top for real. Happy Friday and Hugs Lissa! RO

  14. Sometimes you just have to laugh, but also cringe when the spam shows up.

    It's been so long since I was at Disney that I choked on the $105 for the ticket. Definitely need to find discounts if I ever go.

    Love Libby, too!

    Ah, what a great kid to return it all. He probably saved that woman from a heart attack after losing all that money and her purse.

  15. I found a purse in a parking lot at work. Gave it to the lost and found. Lady came back for it, had $5000 in it.

    I guess that's where the saying "nice guys finish last" comes from.

    You always hear stories where the person who finds it gets a reward. I didn't even get a thank you in person or even a note. Well geez.

    1. I'm not surprised at all that you gave the purse to lost and found, but it saddens me that the person didn't even bother to acknowledge your kindness in returning her handbag intact. Not cool at all! Hugs...RO

  17. Wow! That's a lot of crazy spam you're getting. I have a filter on my comments that tosses stuff like that to my spam folder. Every once in a while one will get through where their comment is talking about how informative and helpful my book review was, but those come through very rarely.

  20. Spam comments are the BEST, haha. I think I've gotten a bunch about one-night stands (I'm sorry, I'm not interested?) and winning money (ha. ha. ha.) and playing poker (not even appealing), along with other things. Let's just say I've gotten a lot from the porn industry (no thanks!).

    I tried out Libby but it felt really similar to Overdrive - not too different aside from a name. Plus I'm pretty sure Libby is operated by Overdrive.

    Also the kitty is so cute! <3

  22. Oh my on the spam. If only my lost Aunt from Russia had really left me a million dollars and that new gadget melted fat. No porn. I love the Libby app.

  23. I am amazed what people can do with fall decor and pumpkins. So much creativity out there!

    I have been to Mt. Rushmore. It amazes me that it was created using dynamite and very few safety measures (because of the time period) and that no one died while working on it! It took a long time to build- but what a process. Fascinating.

    Rhami did a great thing. I love hearing stories like that. I am always shocked that there are people who have large sums of cash in their purses and wallets.

    Have a lovely weekend!

  24. That's hilarious about the spam comments. But you know, I can't help thinking about that guy who returned all the money, or rather - about the person who lost it. Who has 10k in their wallet?? xD I can't imagine it :D but of course, it's awesome that he returned it :)

  25. I do agree with Denise when she said "You find the most fascinating things to share with us. I always find them interesting, thank you"
