Latest Happenings @ The MountainGnome

It's time to CELEBRATE! : Click for Boncarbo, Colorado Forecast St. Patrick's Day is celebrated everywhere on March 17th by both Irish and non-Irish people. Parades, the wearing o' the green and an Irish feast are all customary on this day. A typical American favorite "Irish" dinner is corned beef & cabbage. An Irishman will probably tell you that he's never heard of this boiled beef with cabbage, but he'll gladly eat it with you nevertheless. Corned beef and cabbage was actually created by immigrants in New England, it is a variation of the famous New England Boiled Dinner. So, kiss the Blarney Stone, do a jig, swig some brew, and celebrate St. Patrick's Day with us. Subscribe To The Mountaingnome-Today! The Internets Answer To Variety and FUN!!

  • Signs You've Joined a Cheap HMO!!
    Your "primary care physician" is wearing the pants you gave to goodwill last month.....
World War I: "A wing and a prayer" was first uttered when an American flyer came in with his aircraft so badly damaged that nobody could believe he'd actually made it back in said aircraft with so much damage - his fellow pilots and mechanics were amazed he didn't crash. Reportedly, the fellow replied he was praying all the way in. Another pilot chimed in that "a wing and a prayer brought you back." The phrase stuck and eventually made it into common usage referring to any sort of longshot dream.
  • If Sex Is A Pain In The Ass.....Then You're Doing It Wrong!
Talk About Dumb.... Contributed by Vicki Carey.
The stupidity of some people in this world never fails to amaze.
This picture is real - not doctored in anyway - and was taken in Waldorf by a Transportation Supervisor for a company that delivers building materials for 84 Lumber. When he saw it in the parking lot of IHOP, he went and bought a camera to take pictures.
The car is still running as can be witnessed by the exhaust. A woman is either asleep or otherwise out in the front seat passenger side. The guy driving it was over jogging up and down on Rt. 925 in the background. The witnesses said their physical state was OTHER than normal and the police just shook their heads in amazement. The driver finally came back after the police were there and was getting down at the back to cut the 'twine around the load. They told him to get back until it was taken off.
The materials were loaded at Home Depot. Their store manager said they had the customer sign a waiver! Both back tires are trashed. The back shocks were driven up through the floorboard. In the back seat were 10 bags, 80 lbs. each of concrete. On the roof are many 2X4s, 4X4s and sheets of OSB. They estimated the load weight at 3000 lbs. The car is a VW Jetta with FL plates and the guy said he was headed for Annapolis, MD...JUST UNBELIEVABLE!!!!
(Are these the same people who couldn't follow the instructions on the FL punch ballots?)

Survival Tip:
You must have drinking water to survive, but be careful where you get it from. Do Not go near any large bodies of water. Instead, drink from a water supply that is smaller than you are, so you can not fall in. Another source of water can be found on leaves in the form of dew. Until next time: Be Safe ~ Be Happy!!

Recently: 02/11/2001, 44 bidders of VOODOO4 video cards, were set-up and defrauded by a company WHOLESALE_PC, on the Yahoo! auction web site! The perpetrator of the fraud admitted in an e-mail that he had intended to defraud the bidders, as he had no video cards to sell. I'll make this e-mail public with a link at the end of this article. There was a total of approximately $3000.00 deposited by the 44 bidders into this persons PAYPAL account! Here's the kicker: the crime was perpetrated using Yahoo! auction and PAYPAL to suck the biders into a false sense of security! Well, after all doesn't Yahoo! and PAYPAL claim to have fraud protection?! However, the fine print states that there is no guarantee that you will be definitely compensated for a loss!
We requested that Yahoo! and PAYPAL both, release the real identity and location of this crimnal, so that the bidders could file criminal charges against this person, with the proper authorities where he resides! Responses from both Yahoo! and PAYPAL, were that their privacy policy does not allow them to reveal the identity (there is a link to their e-mails also, at the end of this article). So what this in fact indicates, is that they are protecting the criminal from the victims! Terrific, huh?!
How To Bid On Auctions: If you find an item that you absolutely want, on any auction, have the seller use an escrow account, which is usually available at the auction web site. What this does is: the escrow company receives your money for the item and holds it until you receive your product, if you're unhappy with the product, the escrow company returns your money when the seller receives his product back. This insures that you get your product. It takes a bit longer, however, it is definitely worth the wait! If the seller refuses to use the escrow method, "Don't buy unless you know the seller is reputable"! Sellers using Hotmail and Yahoo e-mail addresses cannot be verified as safe!! Get legitimate phone number and physical address if you have any doubt, and call to be sure of legitimacy, and then be cautious!

The Clintonian legalization of mass murdering innocent babies, through abortion and partial birth abortion.

People find many ways and many terms to justify killing babies, who have no one to defend them, yet they stand in front of a tree, so you don't cut it down, or protect a rat, a mouse or a damned owl! The Nazi's experimented the same way in their death camps. Check out the way they experimented on the babies of pregnant woman.....a society and people who condone this mass murder, have nothing on Adolph Hitler and his tormentors! Once a woman becomes pregnant, you tell me, who gave her the right to judge whether to kill or let this child live?! What crimes has this innocent child committed that he/she be put to death?! Check your bible....intentional-premeditated murder ..."THOU SHALT NOT KILL". Oh yes, you can and many do, find the technical terms to justify this Premeditated Murder, but down deep, the conscience, the soul, the heart and the person, knows that it is WRONG! Justice....RIGHT / WRONG.... there is no middle ground....there is no gray area....there is NO in between! Our own children are proof of the CREATOR! And yes, some are proof that Satan exists also:o))

  • The greatest destroyer of peace is abortion because if a mother can kill her own child, what is left, for me to kill you and you to kill me? There is nothing between.

Fetal Development Pregnancy Month to Month Site offers prenatal information as well as answers to infant concerns and questions. . .

Are your feet swelling?:
Your body retains fluid while you're pregnant (this is called edema), causing the soft tissue around your feet to swell. What's more, while loosening the joints around your pelvis so the baby can get out, the pregnancy hormone relaxin also loosens the joints in your feet and causes them to spread -- sometimes permanently. Although the swelling disappears after you deliver your baby, many women find that their feet never go back to their pre-pregnancy size. Once your feet start to swell, you'll need to invest in some larger shoes. If you used to wear a normal size 7, try a 7 wide or an 8. And go ahead and get a few pairs. Most likely you'll still be wearing them after you deliver.
NOTE: Always Check with and follow the advice of your Physician!

Keeping your baby warm:
It definitely takes practice to be able to tell when your baby is too hot or too cold. In the early months of life, most babies have difficulty maintaining the appropriate body temperature. Because babies can easily become too hot or too cold, you'll need to help them stay comfortable by using the following guidelines:
- If your baby is sleeping comfortably and feeding well, and is calm and not too cranky, then she's probably the appropriate temperature.
- Check to make sure that your baby's extremities -- her hands, feet, and head -- are neither hot nor cold to the touch.
- As a rule of thumb, an infant needs one more layer of clothing than an adult would wear at the same temperature.
NOTE! Always check with and follow the advice of your physician!!
