Bargain Shopping

Zipidee's gone shopping.

He's having a great day, except he's a little confused.

Typical man.

Every one knows bigger is better.
Bigger cars,
Bigger refrigerators
Bigger houses
Bigger Burgers
God knows bigger airplane seats.
Pay so much to sit in a sardine can
with no air.

Bigger government

But small sure looks attractive....... and sporty doesn't it?

Zipidee says  Jump up!

Zipidee says Wave your arms around .

Sit down!!

Zipidee didn't say that.

Pay attention!!
Looks like we're gonna have one of these Zipidee days again. ; p

R  U  READY!!!!?

1/2 cup sugar,3/4 cup butter, 1 egg ,1 cups milk, 5 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt, 3/4 cup butter,
3 cups flour, raisins.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in butter. Mix the egg and milk in a small bowl, and stir into flour mixture until moistened.Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead briefly. Roll dough out into a 1/2 inch thick round. Cut into 8 wedges, and place on the prepared baking sheet.Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.

and there you are, a big kitchen mess and 8 scones no one is going to eat in my house cause every one cooks what they like, or is never home to eat.

Kinda find it a waste of time to cook these days cause I can get scones for 1.25 in the store and at home
it costs me 5 dollars to make .
Most crafts you love doing , are the same way.

In Asia it pays to do them. I used to love flower arranging. It was a cheap and fun craft. You could make 5 elaborate arrangements for 25 dollars to give to people to enjoy. For 25 dollars you only make one here
and you can buy it ready made cheaper.

I  have clothes I keep to go out with but for every day stuff, I shop at Walmart. I can get a blouse and pants there for 5 dollars a piece on special. To buy material and thread to sew the same thing costs me 25 dollars.
If I smell gas on the socks, I don't buy them cause that's cancer.

I love to paint. The stores are full of paintings and you could find great stuff at garage sales , and flea markets
for 7 dollars with frame included.  Art stores are full of expensive mostly prints, no one seems to buy.
On line you also see people selling nice things without a frame for 12 dollars.

Hardly worth making a mess in the house you have to clean every day that collects, with the kind of kids today
who are not interested in anything you do at home. They just want money. So spending money is not something
they want you to do on things like craft work. 

Love today is measured by how much money they can get from you. Presents.... if it doesn't include a car,an apartment, a house, a 10k diamond ring ...well... you are just cheap trash. School?  No need. Just look at our entertainment industry. The basketball heroes,baseball, foot ball . We all need to know what Branjelina is doing.
They are masters at their trade, no schooling and have important opinions we should listen to, cause the papers say so.

I have come to a place in my life where I have to sell, not make more stuff at home.
I have so many boxes full of stuff. I told my kids if you don't want it, keep it cause your kids will be interested to see their history. So, they bring friends home and my display cases are always short the next day, of an item.
So no display cases . Even boxes are not safe anymore. Why? Cause they can sell it and buy drugs or give presents to their family members . Socializing is not what it used to be.

And yet the TV set runs all day, charities beg for money to fill their own pockets (including churches),
people are promoting to legalize drugs to frye brains ((your kids), judges dont care teachers rape children. And no one seems to care that
 kids emulate rap thugs instead of things like etiguette, fine dress and proper behaviour, until they go out and kill some one and this is just in my community. They all come from nice families so what goes wrong?

So this is something I can talk about because the job of adults, is to pull back the reins and say woah.
Slow down, back up and look at what you are doing.
Everything is NOT ok. Don't listen to pressure/peer/ liberal groups.
They have interests, that are not in your interest.

Some people know everything and don't need to read this blog and thats fine.
Other people need to see it in writing. 
So I have the time to put it in writing.

I lived a life and saw many things, raised a family and have a means to compare and I love other peoples blogs to see what interests them. People are wonderful and I like to see it that way.

Once I went to a PTA meeting. The Principal was giving a speech and he said ..." like for example,
people are shy and they won't kiss the guy next to him". 
I immediately stood up and said that's not true
I'll kiss any one. I began kissing people all around me and every one laughed and his speech was shot to hell.

I was trouble and he could see it but the parents, after the meeting, were all around me saying we need people like you. We need people to speak up and rein in a loose canon called liberalism.
Today the liberal party is destroyed because of what they did back then. It was wrong and it is still wrong.

I suddenly knew who I was. A liberal conservative lol Just like that.

Do you know that radicalism in any which way or form warrants a bullet? You say yes, someone gets upset and kills you. You say NO another someone gets upset and kills you. Or worse, they get into the computer, into  utilities, into identity fraud insurance fraud etc... Niagara Falls is a perfect place to study this problem but all provinces are exposed.
So people don't talk.
But if they all talked, people would listen. Today you don't keep anything on your name. 
Criminals don't and this is why they always win.

So ask why? Why does this happen?

Today people in America fear speaking up. Why? Their jails are already full and there is no more room for more criminals let alone people with an opinion. There is so much to say about crime and prisons and especially
ask why this is so? People are not born bad.
Instead our papers are full of gay marriage. Who cares? It's wrong and we all know it's wrong. Australia and Putin say its wrong but we all have to be politically correct and damn the kids.
The only time it could be ok is if we reach a point, whereby no one in the world, is allowed to have children
cause children change everything. They need a family with a Mother and a Father.

No one likes the word NO but this is what the world is about. Our kids are suffering today because we don't teach them NO, so they grow up and are too sensitive to fight bullies and abusers and go out and kill themselves instead.
Make life a bit tougher for them, so they are prepared to live in a world where they will be beat up every day just like every one else is.
Unlike the country or world, parents actually love their kids. It's better they do the spanking than the world who will come in to open doors to kill them.

Take for example this Castro fellow. Look what he did . When it was over, it was over,
but it will never be over for the women he abused. Papers are full of this sort of thing.

Look at all this waste of time and money Obama is spending with Assaad.
Guess what he is saying?  NO! Why is he allowed to and no one else?
No one tells the government that the solution is simple.
Don't bring these people in. Eliminate this radical religion at home so people are free  to run marathons.
Keep your ships at home and get rid of all the nuclear power plants. Keep businesses close to peoples homes so they have jobs. If government doesn't do it, People should, in their communities. Start small and build up just like what the radical elements do. Pay attention to your life and your neighbors'.
The man has a Harvard degree and you mean to tell me he doesn't know what the right thing to do is?
Why are we talking to Putin?  For North America, it was always about 9/11. That's all.

So have yourself a Zipidee Day 
I love kids .They will always be my life, till I die.
What's the excuse people have for not fighting for the things that count and mean more than anything else in the world.

Rick - Regular people need to speak up and not on stupid issues but on things that actually matter.

Ola Magia!!

Wow! There is so much in this post that I hardly know where to begin, except to say it's GREAT!!!

In the example you give at the beginning, three is definitely better than one.

But I do believe in small government rather than big.

What you say about society and kids and a lot of other stuff is RIGHT ON THE MONEY IN MY OPINION!

I wish I had one of your scones RIGHT NOW. My dad used to say, "Wish in one hand and spit in the other and see which you get the most of." Although sometimes he didn't say "spit"...the word he said die rhyme with "spit". And my mom would say "If wishes were horses, then beggars would ride." Still, I wish I had one of your scones RIGHT NOW.

Oops, error. "die" should be "did"...

rhymes it just seems all the wrong people are heard and the media also cannot be trusted because they distort the truth.Our kids need to see people speak up to support the right things otherwise they listen to
activists and no one corrects them so they think its all ok when it isn't.Then when you say something thats true, people come and use bad language because the truth hurts.
People say there is no such thing as truth today. There is.
cold truth. In black and white that shows the right way in 10 simple sentences. That's it.
I also believe in small government, smaller burgers,except on air planes they over do it with the seats and prices.The thing that irritates me is when a 5 year old child has an opinion on political issues. It's absolutely not normal for children to talk politics at that age.
