One thing I learned this week from doing research is the law in Nevada that animals are not necessarily taken away from Abusers unless they have been abused 3 times! I have also discovered that my Ex is in jail and hope he stays there so the organization can save Bruno.

I have also had the reminders of giving control to God and trusting in him when I am under stress and unable to change a situation.

As well as, to stop allowing people to use me and not do their jobs, correctly. I am waiting on a call from the Manager of my Mortgage Girl! I am tired of her lack of communication and Follow-Thru.

What have you learned or been particularly reminded of, this last week?

Received my Secret Santa Gifts today and am really excited! I can’t wait to move and set up my new place! The person that had me spent about $40-50!

Welcome to todays installment of What I Learned This Week.

Please join the discussion in the Comments

First, I learned if you switch phone plans and phones periodically, you can really save money!  Cricket had a great deal which included a Free Phone at $5.00 a month for the next 6 months with Autopay. This is actually a government program for those who qualify, and the phone is a Cricket Ovation 2 with 5 g. which is really good.

The 2nd thing I learned is about the Tarantula:

The male Tarantula is the one that goes looking for a mate. If he sees a nest and maybe a females leg hanging out of it, he knocks…. Pay close attention to the next part. It’s funny and creepy as hell….The female meets the male at the entrance and if she likes him, she approves. If she doesn’t like him. She eats him! Imagine? Knock..Knock… “Hello,. Oh Hell No, You are totally ugly and have an attitude. But, I am hungry and now you won’t waste anyone else’s time!”…

Oh, but it gets worse..

.So, the female has approved. Now the male…. probably to make sure the female doesn’t change her mind…stuffs his ladies mouth with some webbing..a gag, if you will….Bet, you never knew Tarantulas were kinky! But alas, their not. He has to use his hands/claws/legs? to get his juices/etc and put them inside the woman…How sadly unromantic is that?

I also learned a male Tarantula can live 12-14 years, if he doesn’t get eaten.

I actually learned more about Tarantulas but am starting to get itchy writing this, so I will end, here.

Looking forward to hearing/reading what you learned.

Things I learned this week.

I answered a question on Reddit about what you believe happens when you die, and was accused of taking the easy way out with Paschal’s Wager.  I didn’t even know what that was!  I just answered with my belief.  And, No, I am not going to share the definition.  You get to look it up.

I also looked up the meaning of the word, ‘Dalliance’ so, you could say I learned that, too.

I also learned that I really don’t want to visit Disneyland much anymore because the Racism crap is getting ridiculous. They are redoing all the rides I grew up with and even took out the song ‘Zippity-Doo-Da’ due to being Racist and having roots from ‘Song-Of-The-South’.

I learned a lot of ways to kill a tree (Don’t Ask).

But, the main thing I learned this week is that Red Hot Candy gives me Migraines. I am pretty sure it’s the red dye because I have no problem with Cinnamon. Red Hots are one of my favorite candies, but after having Migraines for 4 days straight, I have no problem going back to missing out.

What did you all learn?

Hey, it’s Saturday, and this is the part of my blog where I share what I have learned this week. I hope you will join me and share what you’ve learned, in the comments.

1. A Whale is related to the Hippopotamus. This actually came from a blog I Follow, but I can’t find the person to give credit to, so, if it’s you…Thank You!

Facts from ‘The Gentle Barn’ in California. ‘The Gentle Barn’ is an animal rescue organization that rescues abused farm animals. I totally want to visit! Can we say Bucket List item? They even encourage you to Hug A Cow! Okay, back to things learned:

2. The Turkey is the closest living animal to the Dinosaurs. Gives a whole new perspective to Thanksgiving Dinner now, doesn’t it?

3. The Pig actually has dog like tendencies and likes to have their bellies rubbed. *They are also quite smart and they are clean animals when not playing in the mud…but, I knew that.

4. If you are allergic to Wheat (Me) and you usually take GlutenEase Extra Strength, you need to take 2 pills of GlutenEase Regular verses one of Extra Strength, to get the same results. Yeah, that was a tough life lesson.

5. And finally, Critical Racial Theory is now being taught in schools. It’s pretty much Marxism or reverse Racism teaching about all the terrible things White People did, over time

And, the bell has rung so class is over. See you all next week. Same seats. Keep your eyes and ears open to learn something new.

Learning Saturday

You’ve all heard the expression “You learn something new every day.”. Well, I have chosen to take it a step further. I am going to share a few new things each Saturday that I learned during the week. You can join me in the comments.

Let’s start today, shall we:

A friend of mine had Hemmhorroids really badly and went to the doctor where he rubber banded them so they will fall off. Needless to say, I learned about that procedure.

I also learned the difference in colored verses white Cauliflower. The colored Cauliflower has more vitamins and antioxidants, then the white.

Lastly, I also Googled and learned about Monkeypox.There is a case in Texas,now.

Okay, tired now. Looking forward to reading about anything new you learned or did.

A-Z Challenge-H = Holly

I was going to add the word, Holiday, but we all know it’s my favorite Holiday which is why I am covering it for this challenge.

So, let’s learn a bit about Holly:

While Holly is a very, pretty plant and nice to decorate with, it also has a history of religious meaning.

In Scandinavia, Holly is known as Christ’s Thorn and some Christians believe the prickly leaves of Holly represent the Crown Of Thorns placed on the head of Jesus during the crucifixion and the berries represent the drops of blood caused by those thorns. An interesting way to think about Holly, next time you decorate.

And tomorrow is I. Not quite sure just where that will take me. Could be personal or might just be an cold subject.

Boundary Understanding

I have mentioned before that we are studying ‘Boundaries’ in my Bible Study.  It is really giving me new perspectives and understanding in dealing with situations that used to really upset me. 

Today’s Example: 

My BFF in Virginia and I both love Jeff Dunham.  A few weeks ago, we discovered through one of his videos that he was inviting his viewers to participate in a sing-along on video with him and Achmed.  Viewers were invited to submit their videos and Jeff is going to put together a compilation.  Well, both BFF and I forgot about this..until today.  BFF sent me a text that she and her daughter submitted their video.  When I called and asked her for the link, she snapped at me, saying, “I don’t know.  M. did it.  She’s busy right now. You can look it up.”  I could have snapped back; but, I didn’t.

I remembered how she used to be so competitive with me when growing up and realized that she doesn’t want me submitting a video and being in competition with her. For whatever reason, it’s on her.

So, I looked up the information. I was unable to submit a video through my phone and when I called BFF back to ask a question, she apologized for snapping.

I still share this with you to get it out of my system but am proud of myself for not escalating stupid situations anymore.
