Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

Saturday, January 21, 2012


I have had a couple of experiences this past week where I have been called by people for information. Both ended up with the caller hanging up on me.

The first was a call from the Republican National Committee.
Her "Do you approve of the way Obama is handling the economy?"
Me "I don't approve of the way anyone in politics is handling the economy. That includes Congress. They only have one required job and that is to pass a budget and they can't even do that."
Her "Thank You very much sir."---CLICK

The second was from a credit card company that has called here many, many times telling us they could help us with our debt and we just hung up on them.
Her " I am with ? ? ? ? Bank and we are offering you an opportunity to save a lot of money on your credit card. We have a very good program and assure you we can help you. Now how much do you owe on all of your credit cards combined?"
Me "Nothing."
Her "What did you say?"
Me "We owe nothing."

We need to get on the do not call list.

I just don't answer the phone if it's an 800 number or if the caller ID shows that it is from some kind of salesman or political party. :0)

--Are you aware that the election is tomorrow?
--No, I'm not a registered voter.

--Would you like to save now on phone bills?
--I'm sorry, I don't own a telephone.

--Hello dear, would you like to come over for dinner tonight?
--About that. I'm in a coma and can only eat through a tube.
