This and That . . . . . . Times Five
The speedometer picture in Mondays blog was taken of my Mustang.
The picture above was posted on my February, 23, 2007 blog (link). I said:
I'm so glad it's spring again! So is my little Mustang. This was the first warm-weather, top-down, day of 2007.
[I don't want you to worry about that white garage door paint on the bumper. I have some latex paint remover that takes it right off. I've been there before, done that.]
A NEW FRIEND
Tumaini Kids!, (link to this special blog). It was picked up by Blogger's Blogs of Note blog (link) Monday, the 23rd. It is written by the kids at the school, most of whom are just now learning English.
Here is what it is all about:
- "TumainiKids is one of the first blogs written by OVCs (orphans and vulnerable children) on the Internet, and is part of the Hope Runs project. To find out more, see www.HopeRuns.org or www.TrippingOnWords.com!"
- From their FAQ post (link):"What brings a child to Tumaini?"
There are four main reasons that the 170+ children have ended up at Tumaini, and why there are so many more hoping to enter.
1. Either one or both of a child's parents died of AIDS. A common misconception is that the term "AIDS Orphans" means that the children themselves are sick. This may not be the case. The term actually refers to their parents' cause of death, and can be used on a larger level to refer to the "Silent Crisis" behind this lost generation.
2. The child is orphaned for another reason.
3. The poverty level is such that a child's parents cannot support him or her.
4. The parents are mentally unfit to care for their children.
Some of the stories are soooo touching. These kids are literally rescued from the depths of deprived kids and given a
second first chance for a solid life.
Or just go see them all (link), there aren't too many yet, the blog is just getting started good. It could use your encouragement.
Bloggers are blogging about SEO (or seo) now-adays. I have now idea what in the world this is. Some could show me to a quick update, please. Unless it is immoral, then forget it.

I have "Sevens on Sixes," what do you have?
Should I have should said, "I'll show you mine if you'll show me yours?" A 'call' might have been in order?
Now, I'm not much a poker player but I do know this is a pretty good hand. A Royal Flush, a Straight Flush, or a Four of a Kind will beat this Full House, as will a higher card Full House, say 'Kings on Sixes.' [Link to 'Ranking of Poker Hands' site]
Now I've had a lot of fun putting the last 27,000 or so miles on, it had 49,000 plus when I got it back in 2001. For a nine-year old car ['98 model], this isn't too bad.
Since we see that 150, you might ask if it has ever been there or faster. I don't know the answer to that, I don't know how fast the LOL (Little Old Lady) who had it before me made it go.
I do know it gets pretty close to that pretty fast and still wants to go more. There may be an electronic shutdown but if so it must be over the 150 mark.
Can you tell by looking at the speedometer what kind of car it is, without looking back at my blog posts or because you know me and this car?
This car is my retirement present to me from me. Before, I had an old Dodge 600 convertible that needed a lot to keep it presentable.
There were two reasons to get a convertible. First, since I had gotten drafted and had to sell my first convertible, I never got the urge to sun out of my system. I had to sell it because my car payments were more than my Army pay.
Secondly, I have not gotten the motorcycle urge out of my system either. But this convertible is much safer. I call it an old man's four wheel motorcycle. That works for me.
