My trip to Texas...

Ok, so you want to hear about my trip to Texas. Dad and I went to visit my uncle who lives there. My cousin and her family also live there. We got to see them all. We went to the Texas Motor Speedway. I learned a few things about racing. For instance, I didn't know they had a place for pit stops if they need to do stuff. They also have a place called Victory Lane to take pictures of the winning car and person.

We also went on a ride in my uncle's boat. I haven't been on a boat in I don't know how long. I had a blast.

My cousin and I also had a manicure.

That visit was short and sweet.

On the way home from Texas...

I have been told it was time for a new post. I don't always do as I'm told. Well, here goes. It is time for a new post.

Dad and I went to Texas to visit my uncle. On our way home, when we arrived at the airport, before going through security, dad decided to look for his car keys. He looked in his pockets, they weren't there. He looked through his luggage, they weren't there. He kept gong back and forth, franticly looking for those car keys. He didn't find them. We were making all these plans on what we were going to do. Dad got a hold of my uncle.

What we ended up doing was spending an extra day in Texas. And then back to the airport.

Sorry this is so short, but I had to make a quick post to let all of you out there knwo I am still alive and kicking.

I must get more regular with this.

6 Weird things about me...

Hmmm, I wonder what they could be?

I talk to myself all the tine. I even hold conversations with myself. It's so funny at work, I work with another woman who also talks to herself. I'm processing clothes for her to hang. We both talk to ourselves and not to each other. Now there's 2 others we work with and those two actually talk to each other.

When I was small I put everything that came near my mouth in my mouth. I ate crayons and paste. If it was anywhere near my mouth it would find its way in my mouth.

I'm laughing while I post this.

I don't wear pants or jeans. I wear skirts.

Sometimes I feel closer to those online than in real life.

I speak my mind and get in trouble for it, and don't understand why

Something to think about.............

Subject: This is a GREAT one...

Something to think about.............

Please read this all the way to end.. all the way to end... This is a good thought and it could work. It won't cost anything to try.
Think about it !!

A man eats two eggs each morning for breakfast. When he goes to the grocery store he pays 60 cents a dozen. Since a dozen eggs won't last a week he normally buys two dozens at a time.

One day while buying eggs he notices that the price has risen to 72 cents. The next time he buys groceries, eggs are .76 cents a dozen. When asked to explain the price of eggs the store owner says, "the price has gone up and I have to raise my price accordingly".

This store buys 100 dozen eggs a day. I checked around for a better price and all the distributors have raised their prices. The distributors have begun to buy from the huge egg farms. The small egg farms have been driven out of business.

He checked out the huge egg farms and found they were selling 100,000 dozen eggs to the distributors daily. Nothing had changed but the price of eggs.

This pattern continues until the price of eggs is 2.00 a dozen. The man says,"there must be something we can do about the price of eggs".

He starts talking to all the people in his town and they decide to stop buying eggs. This didn't work because everyone needed eggs. Finally, the man suggested vnly buying what you need.

He ate 2 eggs a day. On the way home from work he would stop at the grocery and buy two eggs. Everyone in town started buying 2 or 3 eggs a day.

The grocery store owner began complaining that he had too many eggs in his cooler. He told the distributor that he didn't need any eggs. Maybe wouldn't need any all week.

The distributor had eggs piling up at his warehouse. He told the huge egg farms that he didn't have any room for eggs would not need any for at least two weeks.

At the egg farm, the chickens just kept on laying eggs.

The distributor told the grocery store owner that he would lower the price of the eggs if the store would start buying again. The grocery store owner said, "I don't have room for more eggs. The customers are only buy 2 or 3 eggs at a time".
"Now if you were to drop the price of eggs back down to the original price, the customers would start buying by the dozen again".

Finally, the egg farmers lowered the price of their eggs. But only a few
cents. The customers still bought 2 or 3 eggs at a time. They said, "when the price of eggs gets down to where it was before, we will start buying by the

Slowly the price of eggs started dropping. The distributors had to slash their prices to make room for the eggs coming from the egg farmers. The egg farmers cut their prices because the distributors wouldn't buy at a higher price than they were selling eggs for.

Anyway, they had full warehouses and wouldn't need eggs for quite a while.

And them chickens kept on laying.

Eventually, the egg farmers cut their prices because they were throwing away eggs they couldn't sell. The distributors started buying again because the eggs were priced to where the stores could afford to sell them at the lower price.

And the customers starting buying by the dozen again.

Now, transpose this analogy to the gasoline industry.

What if everyone only bought $10.00 worth of gas each time they pulled to the pump. The dealers tanks would stay semi full all the time. The dealers wouldn't have room for the gas coming from the huge tank farms. The tank farms wouldn't have room for the gas coming from the refining plants. And the refining plants wouldn't have room for the oil being off loaded from the huge tankers coming from the Middle East.

Just $10.00 each time you buy gas. Don't fill it up. You may have to stop for gas twice a week but, the price should come down.

Think about it.

As an added note..When I buy $10.00 worth of gas,that leaves my tank a little under half full. The way prices are jumping around, you can buy gas for $2.65 a gallon and then the next morning it can be $2.15. If you have your tank full of $2.65 gas you don't have room for the $2.15 gas. You might not understand the economics of only buying two eggs at a time but, you can't buy cheaper gas if your tank is full of the high priced stuff.

Also, don't buy anything else at the gas station, no cigarettes, no bread, milk or chewing gum, don't give them any more of your hard earned money than what you spend on gas, until the prices come down.. Oh, some folks may not see this message. Can you afford to print 10 at a time and pass them out where you buy gas? If you can afford more, you may think of putting them on windshields at the mall.
