Phone Service

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Straight Talk for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
My finances are considered "fixed income", so therefore I must have control over my spending.  I found that the only way to control my cell phone expenses was to go the "pre-pay" way.  When looking at my recent cell phone bill, I began to    see the Light   about exactly how much I was spending on those service plans.  It didn't take me long to realize that I needed a plan I could control and have things limited to my needs.  I found that the actual airtime I needed was for much less than my usual service offered.  I realized that I must be crazy to be in a contract when Straight Talk has everything I need.  When I searched further I immediately fell for one of their plans hook, line and sinker  like a fish.
I love the idea that with Straight Talk I can cut my cell phone bill in half.  The “All You Need Plan” lets my teenager call a friend  , text a friend and has  everything you need  for the many hours she is on the phone.  Unlimited Monthly service for only $45,  includes calls, text, picture messaging, and web.  That's more than enough to handle her way of using.
I like the fact there are no contracts, no surprise bills and no credit checks.   You get great nationwide coverage and excellent reception/connectivity.  Straight Talk only uses trusted phone manufacturers like LG, Motorola, Kyocera, Nokia and Samsung.

Their International Long Distance Service is a flexible prepaid calling service that enables you to make international calls from your home, cell or office phone at low rates.  Find the plan that's right for you and your family.

Chicken Farmer

A chicken farmer went to a local bar, sat next to a woman and ordered a glass of champagne.

The woman perked up and said, 'How about that? I just ordered a glass of champagne, too!'

'What a coincidence' the farmer said. 'This is a special day for me. I am celebrating.'

This is a special day for me too, I am also celebrating,' said the woman.'

'What a coincidence!' said the farmer. As they clinked glasses he added, 'What are you celebrating?'

'My husband and I have been trying to have a child and today my Gynecologist told me that I am pregnant!'

'What a coincidence!' said the man. 'I'm a chicken farmer and for years all of my hens were infertile, but today they are all laying fertilized eggs.'

'That's great!' said the woman, 'How did your chickens become fertile?'

'I used a different cock,' he replied.

The woman smiled, clinked his glass and said, 'What a coincidence!'

Getting Old.........

First ~ Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.
Second ~ The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for. 
Third ~ Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me; I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way, and some of the roads weren't paved.
Fourth ~ When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to youth, think of Algebra.
Fifth ~ You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks. 
Sixth ~ I don't know how I got over the hill without getting to the top.
Seventh ~ One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is such a nice change from being young.
Eighth ~  One must wait until evening to see how splendid the day has been.
Ninth ~ Being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.
Tenth ~ Long ago, when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks, it was called witchcraft. Today it's called golf.
And, finally ~ If you don't learn to laugh at trouble, you won't have anything to laugh at when you are old.

A Job?

If your over 50 years of age, here comes the problem, right? You go to an interview, and what happens? You know all too well, what happened, when you get a letter saying, you were “over qualified”, for the position. I’ve been there done that.

Favorite Animal

Our teacher asked us what our favorite animal was, and I said, "Fried chicken."  She said I wasn't funny, but she couldn't have been right, because everyone else in the class laughed.

My parents told me to always be truthful and honest, and I am.  Fried chicken is my favorite animal.  I told my dad what happened, and he said my teacher was probably a member of PETA.  He said they love animals very much.

I do, too.  Especially chicken, pork and beef.  Anyway, my teacher sent me to the principal's office.  I told him what happened, and he laughed, too  Then he told me not to do it again.
The next day in class my teacher asked me what my favorite live animal was.  I told her it was chicken.  She asked me why, just like she'd asked the other children.  So I told her it was because you could make them into fried chicken.

She sent me back to the principal's office again.  He laughed, and told me not to do it again.  I don't understand.  My parents taught me to be honest, but my teacher doesn't like it when I am.
Today, my teacher asked me to tell her what famous person I admire most.  I told her, "Colonel Sanders."  Guess where I am now...

Angry With Texas

Obama will be making no more public speeches in Texas .... He claims every time he gets up on stage to make a speech, some South Texas cotton farmer starts bidding on him. LOL

In Debt?

The economy has caused a big strain on many families and they are finding the need of  debt collection services   to help with their bills. It's sad to watch a two income family fall to a one income having to struggle just to buy food and clothes for their children.  Some of the families have lost both jobs and gone into foreclosure on their homes.  It's not a pretty sight to see this happening to people who were able to survive on the incomes they had before.

City Workers

I actually caught the local city workers doing their jobs, for a change.  The supervisor was standing over on the left side, watching with his arms crossed.  Par for the course, but I suppose he got paranoid, when he saw me watching because he actually came over and took a shovel to help the men move the asphalt evenly into the hole.

New Camera

Recently I was visiting one of the network sites, that has taken my attentions.  I saw a comment where this lady had just bought her a new digital camera, with many amenities.  This caused me to search the web for cameras, their amenities and prices.  I found that the  canon slr cameras  are quality made cameras, and can be obtain for decent prices.  The amenities are great and if you are looking to buy a new camera, then you should take a look at the one's listed on the above website.  I believe you will be happy with the benefits you can receive when you invest.


I can't believe what has happened to me?  I move to a new place and before I've been in the house over 2 weeks, someone comes during the night and pilfers around in some stuff I left in my car.  This neighborhood, is quiet and secure, located in a small rural town.  Yet, I find it wasn't as secure as I considered it to be.  The things taken weren't very important, but had the vandal been able to get my car hood open, I'm sure the battery would have been taken.  You can't win, no matter where you are or what you do to be safe.


There is always a need to update or remodel your life and surroundings.  Along with updates, comes the need for extra insurance to cover possible losses.  You can go online to  and make a application for the type of insurance you need.  Very soon you will get quotes from several companies.  This gives you the benefit of comparing and shopping for the best deals.  Take the time to find the best for you and your family's welfare.

Oh No He Didn't !

A woman awakes during the night to find that her husband is not in bed. She puts on her robe and goes downstairs to look for him.  She finds him sitting at the kitchen table with a hot cup of coffee in front of him. He appears to be in deep thought, just staring at the wall She watches as he wipes a tear from his eye and takes a sip of his coffee.
"What's the matter, dear?" she whispers as she steps into the room, "Why are you down here at this time of night?"

The husband looks up from his coffee, "It's the 20th Anniversary of the day we met."
She can't believe he has remembered and starts to tear up.
The husband continues, "Do you remember 20  years ago when we started dating?
I was 18 and you were only 16,"  he says solemnly.

Once again, the wife is touched to tears thinking that her husband is so caring and sensitive. "Yes, I do" she  replies.
The husband pauses.  The words were not coming easily.  "Do you remember when your father caught us in the back seat
of my car?"
"Yes, I remember" said the wife, lowering herself into a chair beside him.
The husband continued. "Do you remember when he shoved the shotgun in my face and said, "Either you marry my daughter or I will send you to prison for 20 years?"
"I remember that, too" she replied softly.
He wiped another tear from his cheek and said  "I would have gotten out today."

Melted Lipstick

What a mess you have when you reach down into your purse and feel something gooey .  You can only imagine the worst and a handful of lipstick all over your purse and other items is one of the biggest.  I found exactly that when a lid came off in my purse and it was in the sun too long.  I realize that it didn't take the sun to make the mess.  The sun just added to the mess.  So, it's find a place that I can pour out all the stuff without making more of a mess.  Then I must see what can be salvaged and that's not much.  Naturally, that purse is headed for the trash can and I must find another to hold my items.

What Starts With F and Ends With K ?

A first-grade teacher, Ms Brooks, was having trouble with one of her students. The teacher asked, "Harry, what's your problem?"

Harry answered, "I'm too smart for the 1st grade. My sister is in the 3rd grade and I'm smarter than she is! I think I should be in the 3rd grade too!"

Ms.. Brooks had enough. She took Harry to the principal's office.

While Harry waited in the outer office, the teacher explained to the principal what the situation was. The principal told Ms. Brooks he would give the boy a test. If he failed to answer any of his questions he was to go back to the 1st grade and behave. She agreed.

Harry was brought in and the conditions were explained to him and he agreed to take the test.

"What is 3 x 3?"


"What is 6 x 6?'


And so it went with every question the principal thought a 3rd grader should know.

The principal looks at Ms. Brooks and tells her, "I think Harry can go to the 3rd grade."

Ms. Brooks says to the principal,"Let me ask him some questions."

The principal and Harry both agreed.

Ms.. Brooks asks, "What does a cow have four of that I have only two of?"

Harry, after a moment: "Legs."

Ms Brooks: "What is in your pants that you have but I do not have?"

The principal wondered why would she ask such a question!

Harry replied: "Pockets."

Ms. Brooks: "What does a dog do that a man steps into?"


The principal sat forward with his mouth hanging open.

Ms. Brooks:"What goes in hard and pink then comes out soft and sticky?"

The principal's eyes opened really wide and before he could stop the answer,
Harry replied, "Bubble gum."

Ms. Brooks: 'What does a man do standing up, a woman does sitting down and a dog does on three legs?'

Harry: "Shake hands."

The principal was trembling.

Ms.. Brooks: "What word starts with an "F" and ends in "K" that means a lot of heat and excitement?'


The principal breathed a sigh of relief and told the teacher,"Put Harry in the fifth-grade, I got the last seven questions wrong."
