Tis Tornado Season

More tornado and thunderstorm warnings and watches across Colorado today. The high was 86 degrees but felt like 100.

Notes from the Home Front

It's so nice to have a GREAT staff at the rental office. Tonight, it's pretty quiet around here, no late night parties or loud obnoxious neighbors. I was informed that we have two pools here and since the other one is off the beaten path, it'll be reserved more for adults! I'm excited!

National News

Oil Spill - Gulf of Mexico

We didn't like Ken Salazar here in Colorado and now wonder if he's misleading the public regarding oil drilling. Read the article from the Denver Post.

BP - Tony Hayward CEO

Have you seen the commercials "starring" Tony Hayward? He's such a liar, crews are not on the job as much as the commercial shows, he's not paying the workers their actual worth or even repaying for losses as he should. Just like the Gulf of Mexico is filing fast with oil, Tony Hayward is spewing his own shit on land. What are your comments about what BP is doing? or not doing?

Unemployment News

Finally! The Voices of 99'ers Are Finally Being Heard in Washington - Congress to Hold Hearings on Long Term Unemployment. Congress needs to hear us! Since I'm on twitter and facebook, I have noticed that posts regarding unemployment have slowed down. Even on Twitter, the #unemployment hashtag posts have slowed as well. Peoples posts, comments and tweets are still needed to encourage further funding for the long term unemployed. Don't stop the calls, emails, faxes etc to your Senators and Representatives in Washington DC. Please read the article.

Last week I posted a disgusting article on companies not hiring unemployed candidates. There is a company or temp agency named The People Place that follows this practice. Sony Erikkson had the slogan on one of their ads, but has now deleted it. Let's band together to find who these companies are. I'll even expose them with use of my blog and social media ie: facebook and twitter. Today, I searched google for "NO UNEMPLOYED CANDIDATES WILL BE CONSIDERED AT ALL", these were my results.

Tech News

AT&T Pricing Changes for iPhone 4

For anyone who already owns an iPhone, your plans don't seem to be changing. Once you buy an iPhone 4 that all changes. AT&T is going to capitalize on users who watch movies without being on wi-fi. Hang onto your wallet and read all about it!

Apple iPad

This in from - Apple's Worst Security Breach: 114,000 iPad Owners Exposed. If you own an iPad - you'll want to read the whole article.
Here is an excerpt - The specific information exposed in the breach included subscribers' email addresses, coupled with an associated ID used to authenticate the subscriber on AT&T's network, known as the ICC-ID. ICC-ID stands for integrated circuit card identifier and is used to identify the SIM cards that associate a mobile device with a particular subscriber.

Free Stock Photos

Have you ever felt the need to look for a free stock photo for your website? Fried Beef gives you 8 places to get them. Before you go looking, don't do as one company I worked for did - they found a picture with 6 people in it who were supposed to represent their workers. Well these people not only didn't work there and never will but other companies were using the SAME stock photo to depict their employees. I have one thing to say, in light of high unemployment, no wonder we can't get jobs, these same 6 people in the photo took all of the openings.

Foodie Stuff

Because there wasn't much in Local News, I didn't post any. Instead I'm adding a review of a food product.

Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce

In my quest to continue to be frugal, I found an offer for a free coupon toward the purchase of Country Bob's Sauce. I highly recommend this sauce, it has a slight sweetness to it. Personally, I have used it in making hamburgers and for dipping steak and french fries in. My next use of Country Bob's All Purpose sauce will be in the making of BBQ Chicken Wings. You can find recipes and where to purchase Country Bob's on their website. When you go to their website, on the upper right hand side, click on the FREE button for a coupon to obtain a free bottle. If you live in an apartment complex and get a message stating that someone at your address has already received a coupon, click on "contact us" and write for one. Country Bob's is also found on Facebook where they have contests and drawings for free product.

As always,
