10 million thanks ;-)

Crikey Mikey, we’re nearly at the 10 million mark.

Okay, you know what annoying thing happens when the blog reaches a certain number of hits …. I pester you about donating to TOD’s Obama/Biden 2012 fundraiser.

So, here we go again:

If you could spare $10 and if you’re an exceptionally magnificent person, you could click that link below and donate.

Anyone who donates more than $10 will get 10,000 of these buttons in the post:

(I got them for free, for some reason they were no longer selling)

Thank you everyone SO much for your support – and your company (although it should be clarified: most of those 10 million hits were me checking in to clear the spam folder of links to sites offering to enlarge every body bit you could possibly imagine – even ear lobes).


Time for a tune, methinks:

Love ya πŸ˜‰


And here’s the fella we’re fighting for:

      Just donated $11.00 – $10 for the 10,000,000 hits, and and extra $1 for being first :). Would have made it more but I just donated to PBO and DCCC yesterday. I’m saving for my trip to France (first and probably only o to visit my daughter).

        Thanks Chips for all you do here. You are an inspiration to many and you do a good job of shielding us from the snakes in the grass.
        Without you we wouldn’t have this beautiful place to gather and learn from each other.
        This morning I lifted the President up. He needs special prayers today because of the summit.
        And I lift you up too Chips that you might continue to be blessed.
        I plan to contribute once this year. Been saving my pennies and my quarters. I must confess that a million of those hits came from me.

    CONGRATULATIONS Chipsticks! It couldn’t happen to a better blogger – bar NONE. I know, because I’ve checked out others and found them WANTING. I’ve even seen some blogs who copy new TOD threads, minutes after Chipsticks puts it up. So Chipsticks you stand proudly head and shoulders above the rest.

    Well done Chipsticks, Well done. You are loved and respected by us here at TOD. I personally would be lost and ignorant without YOU.

    Chips, you reminded me of a funny story: my husband, at 72, has essential tremors. There’s not much that can be done for them but his primary doctor (thank you, Medicare!) wanted him to see a neurologist to see if there was anything new out there. The young doctor discussed medications and alternative therapies like meditation, etc. (nice to hear from a young neurologist — not everything in medicine is expensive, invasive and drugs with side effects. Thank you,Obamacare!). Since my husband has the most trouble when he tries to write the doctor googled on his phone “wide grip pens”. Well, you can imagine what Google thought he meant. He was good natured about it, but lamented that Google now thinks he’s looking to increase the size of body parts, and his spam folder would increase exponentially.

    • May 18, 2012 at 10:51 pm

      That’s a hoot 57, I’ve often looked up (seemingly) innocent stuff on Google too and got the most, well, mindblowing results. Hope your husband is coping with this?

      • 78 57andfemale
        May 18, 2012 at 11:24 pm

        he’s doing okay, thanks for asking. he is a clock restorer by profession and he can still do a lot of his work, but not all of it. He’s pretty healthy.

        we’ve been self-employed our entire married life (almost 32 years). We’ve lived in and out of Insurance Hell, and if you’ve ever struggled getting insurance and/or being able to keep it and afford it, Medicare is an absolute blessing. To be able to take him to a doctor when he needs to go is a blessed relief to us.

      I remember when we first got a home computer…. way back when. I was teaching a class on Intimate and Family Relationships — and the students had nearly come to blows over the topic of spanking, child discipline in other words. So I came home and decided to see what the internet had to say about the topic. I wasn’t used to search engines yet. So I typed in “spanking”…

      I couldln’t figure it out at first. Leather, chains, whips, oh my……

    Contrary to the image here that I am on a G&T bender right in the morning, I am actually on road (have been for the past 3 hours). My late dad’s best friend, who crossed 100, passed away y’day night. I am on my way to his funeral.

    He was the first industrialist in our district, an uneducated man, who built up a big cotton spinning mill from scratch. My dad, an post graduate electrical engineer, was the second industrialist, who too built up our company from scratch. No wonder both of them hit it off together despite their totally different educational backgrounds.

Sounds like he lived not only a long life, but a blessed and fruitful one. A life well lived indeed. Sincerest condolences to you and his family. May your happy memories of him and the friendship he shared with your dad bring you some comfort at this time. Here’s a hug for you, dear.{{{amk}}}

        Thanks Duedette. Yes, he lived a full life active till his last day. I am just glad that I could meet him at his 100th b’day and take his blessings. Even at 100, he remembered my dad and me (I was his pet grandson). His two grandsons told me they had not seen him so animated in 3 years till I met him. Guess some memories just don’t fade away.

      β€œTo laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends. To appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”

        The old man was exactly the same as I met him last time about a coupla months back. He was going to his beloved spinning mill till his last 5 days. !00 years!!! Still he was there in his mill regular as a clock at 8 am sharp. An era has ended and I am very proud to be associated with him in my last 25 years. He was a pillar of strength for me when I lost my dad 18 years back. I will miss him sorely.

      Oh and I put my $10 in, can’t wait for the 10,000 buttons. I am helping my daughter in law at their fundraising garage sale for her speech and debate students. While going thru all the stuff I found an etch a sketch. I had to buy it. Not sure what I am going to do with it, but I feel I will be able to use it sometime in the next 5 months.

        This is blasphemy (if you grew up in the 80’s). If you didn’t, she’s an R&B artist who made lots of good music in her day, and broke into the black music scene as a little white girl – and took it by storm. She passed away recently (last year, I think). Her music was legend.

Thanks for the party tonight:) As usual, it was fun…must try to get some sleep, as company is coming tomorrow, for a week. May be spotty visits from me for the week…but I promise to check in a often as I can…the parentals have NO IDEA about my TOD/internet news/ PBO addiction. I will have to have “the talk” with my dad…about the realities of politics and the facts about Mittliar. He doesn’t have a computer, so he just knows what the MSM tells him. We know how that works out!

    OK, here’s the new plan. These 10 million hits will represent the MINIMUM amount of votes that President Obama will defeat Willard by. As the hits keep ticking in this will indicate the number of votes that Obama/Biden will dominate with over and above what they need on November 6, 2012. Sooooo this means a major landslide for our guys! AMEN!!!!

    Haha—-my Chgo daugher just called the squirrels in her neighborhood “terrorists”. They have learned to scale her brick bldg. and wrecked all her newly planted flower pots on her 3rd floor deck, flowers all “depotted” and lying dead and dying, dirt everywhere, obviously the result of selecting those pots for nut burying purposes. I told her she should try to look on the bright side and admire their adaptability and urban skills. She was not yet in bushy tail appreciation mode.

    Gov. Robert F. McDonnell signed highly contentious voter identification legislation Friday and, in a move meant to quell concerns that it would disenfranchise some people, ordered elections officials to send new cards to everyone registered in the state.

    McDonnell (R) signed a pair of House and Senate bills that will require voters to show identification before their ballots are counted but that also expand the forms of ID acceptable at the polls.

    His executive order also directs the State Board of Elections to launch a public education campaign to raise awareness about the need to show identification.

    β€œOpen and secure elections are the cornerstone of a free democracy and are essential for citizens to have faith in their government,” McDonnell said in a statement. β€œEvery qualified citizen has the right to cast one vote. Not two votes; not zero votes. It is our duty as a democracy to ensure that is always the case.”

    Congratulations Chips! I can finally donate since I am now retired. I worked in a financial investment company and compliance rules forbade any political donations. Glad to be able to do this now.

    Chinese activist Chen Guangcheng – who was at the centre of a diplomatic crisis with Washington – is on his way to the United States. The blind activist and his family boarded a flight to Newark, near New York, after being taken from a Beijing hospital to the capital’s airport


    He better say he is grateful for what Hillary and Obama did for him.
