Anything Non-Dog Related / Mastectomy Bill in Congress!
« on: March 22, 2007, 02:59:00 pm »
Mastectomy Hospital Bill in Congress
A mastectomy is when a woman's breast is removed in order to remove cancerous breast cells/tissue.  If you know anyone who has had a mastectomy, you may know that there is a lot of discomfort and pain afterwards.   Insurance companies are trying to make mastectomies an outpatient procedure.  Let's give women the chance to recover properly in the hospital for 2 days after surgery.

         Mastectomy  Bill in Congress

         It takes 2 seconds to  do this and is very important... please take the time and do it really  quick!

         Breast Cancer Hospitalizatio n Bill - Important legislation for all women.

          Please send this to everyone in your address book. If there was ever a time when our voices and choices should be heard, this is one of those times.   If you're receiving this, it's because I think you will take the 30 seconds to go to vote on this issue and send it on to others you know who will do the same.

         There's a bill called the Breast Cancer Patient Protection Act which will require insurance companies to cover a minimum 48-hour hospital stay for patients undergoing a mastectomy.   It's about eliminating the "drive-through mastectomy" where women are forced to go home just a few hours after surgery y, against the wishes of their  doctor, still groggy from anesthesia and sometimes with drainage tubes still  attached.

         Lifetime Television has put this bill on their web page with a petition drive to show your support.   Last year over half the House signed on.

          PLEASE!! Sign the petition by clicking on the web site above.   You need not give more than your name and zip code number. 

               This takes about 2 seconds.  PLEASE PASS THIS ON to  your friends and family, and on behalf of all women, THANKS.

Games & Jokes / Why Parents Drink! Funny!!!

A father passing by his son's bedroom was astonished to see that his bed
was nicely made and everything was picked up. Then he saw an envelope,
Propped up prominently on the pillow that was addressed to "Dad."
With the worst premonition he opened the envelope with trembling hands
and read the  letter.

Dear Dad:
It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing you. I had to
Elope with my new girlfriend because I wanted to avoid a scene with
Mom and you.
I have been finding real passion with Stacy and she is so nice.
But I knew you would not approve of her because of all her piercing,
Tattoos, tight motorcycle clothes and the fact that she is much older than
I am. But it's not only the passion...Dad she's pregnant.
Stacy said that we will be very happy.
She owns a trailer in the woods and has a stack of firewood for the whole
winter.  We share a dream of having many more children.  Stacy has
opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana doesn't really hurt anyone.
We'll be growing it for ourselves and trading it with the other people
that live nearby for cocaine and ecstasy. In the meantime we
will pray that science will find a cure for AIDS so Stacy can get better.
She deserves it.
Don't worry Dad. I'm 15 and I know how to take care of myself.
Someday I'm sure that we will be back to visit so that you can get to know
your grandchildren.

Love,

Your Son John

PS. Dad, none of the above is true. I'm over at Tommy's house. I just
wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than a report
card that's in my center desk drawer.
I love you.  Call me when it's safe to come home.

Games & Jokes / The Miracle of Toilet Paper!
« on: March 06, 2007, 04:15:43 pm »
Fresh from my shower, I stand in front of the mirror complaining to my husband
that my breasts are too small.  Instead of characteristic ally telling me it's
not so, he  uncharacterist ically comes up with a
suggestion. "If you want your  breasts to grow, then every day take a piece of
toilet paper and rub  it between them for a few seconds"
Willing to try anything, I fetch a  piece of toilet paper and stand in front of
the mirror, rubbing it  between my breasts.
"How long will this take?" I asked.
"They will  grow larger over a period of years," my husband replies. I stopped.
"Do  you really think rubbing a piece of toilet paper between   my
breasts  every day will make my breasts larger over the years?" Without missing
a  beat he says "Worked for your butt, didn't it?"
He's still alive,  and with a great deal of therapy, he may even walk again
although he  will probably continue to take his meals through a straw.
Stupid, stupid man.

I was sent this in a fila forum!!!!

Each Friday night after work, Bubba would fire up his outdoor grill and cook venison steak. But, all of Bubba's neighbors were Catholic--and since it was Lent, they were forbidden from eating meat on Friday.


The delicious aroma from the grilled venison steaks was causing such a problem for the Catholic faithful that they finally talked to their priest.   The priest came to visit Bubba and suggested that he become a Catholic.

After several classes and much study, Bubba attended Mass---and the Priest sprinkled holy water over him and said,  "You were born a Baptist and raised as a Baptist but now you are Catholic."

Bubba's neighbors were greatly relieved, until Friday night arrived and the wonderful aroma of grilled venison filled the neighborhood.
The priest was called immediately by the neighbors.

As the priest rushed into Bubba's yard, clutching a rosary, and prepared to scold him, he stopped and watched in amazement.  There stood Bubba, clutching a small bottle of holy water which he carefully sprinkled over the grilling meat and chanted: "You wuz born a deer, you wuz raised a deer, but now you is a catfish."

Anything Non-Dog Related / To all moms or moms to be or wanna be moms

to 2 legged kids....

Being A Mom

 

 We are sitting at lunch one day when my daughter casually mentions that she and her husband are thinking of "starting a family."  "We're taking a survey," she says half-joking. "Do you think I should have a baby?"   "It will change your life," I say, carefully keeping my tone neutral.   "I know," she says, "no more sleeping in on weekends, no more spontaneous vacations."  But that is not what I meant at all. I look at my daughter, trying to decide what to tell her. I want her to know what she will never learn in childbirth classes.  I want to tell her that the physical wounds of child bearing will heal, but becoming a mother will leave her with an emotional wound so raw that she will forever be vulnerable.  I consider warning her that she will never again read a newspaper without asking, "What if that had been MY child?" That every plane crash, every house fire will haunt her. That when she sees pictures of starving children, she will wonder if anything could be worse than watching your child die. 

 

I look at her carefully manicured nails and stylish suit and think that no matter how sophisticated she is, becoming a mother will reduce her to the primitive level of a bear protecting her cub. That an urgent call of "Mom!" will cause her to drop a soufflé or her best crystal without a moments hesitation. 

 

I feel that I should warn her that no matter how many years she has invested in her career, she will be professionally derailed by motherhood. She might arrange for childcare, but one day she will be going into an important business meeting and she will think of her baby's sweet smell. She will have to use every ounce of discipline to keep from running home, just to make sure her baby is all right. I want my daughter to know that every day decisions will no longer be routine. That a five year old boy's desire to go to the men's room rather than the women's at McDonald's will become a major dilemma.  That right there, in the midst of clattering trays and screaming children, issues of independence and gender identity will be weighed against the prospect that a child molester may be lurking in that restroom.  However decisive she may be at the office, she will second-guess herself constantly as a mother.

 

Looking at my attractive daughter, I want to assure her that eventually she will shed the pounds of pregnancy, but she will never feel the same about herself.  That her life, now so important, will be of less value to her once she has a child.  That she would give herself up in a moment to save her offspring, but will also begin to hope for more years, not to accomplish her own dreams, but to watch her child accomplish theirs.  I want her to know that a cesarean scar or shiny stretch marks will become badges of honor.

 

My daughter's relationship with her husband will change, but not in the way she thinks.  I wish she could understand how much more you can love a man who is careful to powder the baby or who never hesitates to play with his child. I think she should know that she will fall in love with him again for reasons she would now find very unromantic.  I wish my daughter could sense the bond she will feel with women throughout history who have tried to stop war, prejudice and drunk driving.

 

I want to describe to my daughter the exhilaration of seeing your child learn to ride a bike. I want to capture for her the belly laugh of a baby who is touching the soft fur of a dog or cat for the first time.

I want her to taste the joy that is so real it actually hurts.   My daughter's quizzical look makes me realize that tears have formed in my eyes. "You'll never regret it," I finally say. Then I reached across the table, squeezed my daughter's hand and offered a silent prayer for her, and for me, and for all the mere mortal women who stumble their way into this most wonderful of callings.  Please share this with a Mom that you know or all of your girlfriends who may someday be Moms. May you always have in your arms the one who is in your heart.
