Men'sTungsten Carbide Ring for Sale

Okay, so I got a ring for hubby and he gave me the wrong size!  What is up with that?  Anywho, instead of waiting forever for a replacement ring after sending this one back in I thought I'd give a go of selling it instead and just getting him a new one.  So, here it is.  I have a Men's 8mm size 10 Tungsten Carbide ring.  It has three crosses engraved on the outside and the scripture from Song of Solomon, "Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm," on the inside.  I am asking $40 for it.  If you know of anyone interested then just drop me a line or comment ;).  Also, no shipping charge if I have to ship it.  Here's a pic without the engraving shown but it gives you an idea.

Newsboys: Born Again Chords

If you don't know yet, my school year has started so I don't get a chance to make as much jewelry, crafts, or post on my blog as much, but I am sure gonna try to keep up to some degree.  Here is a great song that is out.  I have always loved Tait from DC Talk.  He has a great voice, and even though I will forever be sad that there is no more DC Talk or my fave members from Newsboys, at least the great voice of Tait has been put to great use in the new Newsboys.

  Anywho, I haven't double checked these chords for their accuracy as I normally do cause I just cannot sing this song.  Well, let me correct that, I can sing the song, but it sounds way not good, imagine Ariel trying to sing this, not as pretty as Part of Your World.  Okay, here it is:

I love the original video but it has embedding disabled, Here is the Link.

These are the chords, if they don't work for you then you can change keys, etch:

C#m = 446654
A   = 577655
E   = 779977
C#    = know what chord this is) 

      C#m A  E C# (x2)
oh oh oh 

verse 1

C#m                A 
I found myself looking into the mirrior 
       E             C#
Knew I wasnt who I wanted to be 
C#m                A  
I was living like the way that I wanted
       E              C# 
But my eyes reminded me I'm not free.
C#m                A  
Beleived that I saw everything that I know
      E             C#
Says I got to go, tired of going solo
  C#m               C#...   
But I'm never gonna go there again. 


This is what it is 
This is who I am 
            E                   C#
This is where I finally take my stand
I didnt want to fall
But I don't have to crawl 
E                             C#
I met the One with two scarred hands 
C#m                             A
Giving him the best of everything thats left of
   E               C# 
The life inside this man
               C#m  A  E  C#  
I've been Born Again 

( and repeat it C#m A E C# )

verse 2

I see you walking like your living in fear 
Having trouble even looking at me 
Wishin they would give you more than words 
Sick of people telling how it should be (how it should be) 
Whats your download, where'd you get your info, you saw that I'm show now your in the inload 
Gonna tell you what I believe 


This is what it is 
This is who I am 
This is where I finally take my stand 
I didnt want to fall 
But I don't have to crawl 
I met the One with two scarred hands 
Giving him the best of everything thats left of 
The life inside this man 
I've been Born Again 


We are the ones they call by name
      (I'm never gonna look back) 
Let go let go the guilt the shame
        (Said I'm never gonna look back) 
       C#m   A   E   C#  
This is who I am 


This is what it is 
This is who I am 
This is where I finally take my stand 
I didnt want to fall 
But I don't have to crawl 
I met the One with two scarred hands 
Giving him the best of everything thats left of 
The life inside this man 
I've been Born Again...

C#m A E C#

the end.

Just for Giggles!

Driving with my two young boys to a funeral, I tried to prepare them by talking about burial and what we believe happens after death. The boys behaved well during the service. But at the gravesite, I discovered my explanations weren't as thorough as I'd thought. In a loud voice, my four-year-old asked, "Mom?"
"Yes," I whispered.
"What's in the box?"
--Ginny Richards

A family was celebrating their daughter's fifth birthday at a local restaurant when the little girl's father noticed her looking sadly at a moose head on the wall.
Someone had placed a party hat on its head. Her father knelt beside her and explained why some people hunt animals.
"I know all that," the child sobbed. "But why did they have to shoot him at his birthday party?"
--Jerry Bundick

Although desperate for work, I passed on a job that I'd found on an employment website. It was for a wastewater plant operator. Among the job requirements: "Must be able to swim."
--Michael Leamons

A pastor I know has a standard liturgy for funerals. To personalize each service, he uses the Find and Replace command on his computer to replace the name of the deceased from the previous funeral with the name of the deceased for the upcoming one. Recently, he had to replace the name Mary with Edna.
The next morning, the funeral was going smoothly until the congregation intoned the Apostles' Creed. "Jesus Christ," they read from the preprinted program, "born of the Virgin Edna."
--Robin Greenspan

Just for Giggles!

Hospital regulations require a wheelchair for patients being discharged. However, while working as a student nurse, I found an elderly gentleman already dressed and sitting on the bed with a suitcase at his feet-who insisted he didn't need my help to leave the hospital.
After a chat about rules being rules, he reluctantly let me wheel him to the elevator. On the way down, I asked if his wife was meeting him.
"I don't know," he said. "She's still upstairs in the bathroom changing out of her hospital gown."
--Patsy R. Dancey

I was already a nervous wreck about my upcoming surgery. It didn't help matters when the admitting nurse asked me, "Have you had a hysterectomy before?"
--Terry Wisener

"What is that sound?" a woman visiting our nature center asked.
"It's the frogs trilling for a mate," Patti, the naturalist, explained. "We have a pair in the science room. But they've been together for so long, they no longer sing to each other."
The woman nodded sympathetically. "The trill is gone."
--KathyJo Townson

Four teenagers were arrested in the parking lot of a large mall in Lakeland, Fla., just before Christmas when, attempting to steal an automobile at random, they tried to break into a police van containing three officers on a stakeout.

We rushed our four-year-old son, Ben, to the emergency room with a terrible cough, high fever, and vomiting. The doctor did an exam, then asked Ben what bothered him the most. After thinking it over, Ben said hoarsely, "I would have to say my little sister."
--Angela Schmid

To Funny to Pass Up: Credit Cards

Is this story true??

In March 1992 a man living in Newton near Boston Massachusetts received a bill for his as yet unused credit card stating that he owed $0.00.  He ignored it and threw it away.

In April he received another and threw that one away too.  The following month the credit card company sent him a very nasty note stating they were going to cancel his card if he didn't send them $0.00 by return of post.  He called them, talked to them, they said it was a computer error and told him they'd take care of it.

The following month our hero decided that it was about time that he tried out the troublesome credit card figuring that if there were purchases on his account it would put an end to his ridiculous predicament.  However, in the first store that he produced his credit card in payment for his purchases he found that his card had been cancelled.

He called the credit card company who apologized for the computer error once again and said that they would take care of it.  The next day he got a bill for $0.00 stating that payment was now overdue.

Assuming that having spoken to the credit card company only the previous day the latest bill was yet another mistake he ignored it, trusting that the company would be as good as their word and sort the problem out.

The next month he got a bill for $0.00 stating that he had 10 days to pay his account or the company would have to take steps to recover the debt.

Finally giving in he thought he would play the company at their own game and mailed them a cheque for $0.00.  The computer duly processed his account and returned a statement to the effect that he now owed the credit card company nothing at all.

A week later, the man's bank called him asking him what he was doing writing a cheque for $0.00.  After a lengthy explanation the bank replied that the $0.00 cheque had caused their cheque processing software to fail.   The bank could not now process ANY cheques from ANY of their customers that day because the cheque for $0.00 was causing the computer to crash.

The following month the man received a letter from the credit card company claiming that his cheque had bounced and that he now owed them $0.00 and unless he sent a cheque by return of post they would be taking steps to recover the debt.  The man, who had been considering buying his wife a computer for her birthday, bought her a typewriter instead.

Curiosity Killed the Cat

I am a very curious person.  If someone tells me something or asks me something I am not satisfied with an "I don't know."  I have to find out.  There is a curiosity in me that does not let me rest.  I am a bowl full of useless information that may someday benefit me if I ever make it on Jeopardy or Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. 

Anywho, just for fun I was thinking of the saying, "Curiosity Killed the Cat."  Well, if curiosity killed the cat then the cat was curious at least 9 times cause cats have nine lives? Right? Right?  Perhaps it's just me, hmmm.

Two Things That DO NOT Go Together

My latest discovery, oh how I love to discover, is two things that definitely do not go together.  However wonderful on their own or paired with something else, they are not for each other.

Taco's, specifically Del Taco or Taco Bell tacos and....
Sonic Slushies.  It was like toxic waste when combined.  Not together mind you as in make a slushy of sonic slushy and tacos (ewwww) but take a bite of taco, take a sip of slushy, and wah-lah, yuck!
