Boru here. Normally I do a stand-up comic routine in this space, however, today I am deeply sorrowed by an obituary that I read in this morning's Bumpass Gazette. So nothing funny from me.
|Poppin' Fresh in NYC|
|Mr. & Mrs Doughboy|
three children: John Dough, Jane Dough and Dosey Dough, plus they had one in the oven. He is also survived by his elderly father, Pop Tart. The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes. The family asks that if Doughboy made you smile, please rise to the occasion and take time to pass this on and, share that smile with someone else that may be having a crumby day and kneads a lift.

JURY Duty Scam: The caller claims to be a jury duty coordinator and claims that you’ve missed jury duty and that, therefore, there’s an arrest warrant for you. If you protest that you never received a summons for jury duty, the scammer asks you for your Social Security number and date of birth so he or she can verify the information and cancel the arrest warrant. Give out any of this information and bingo, your identity was just stolen.
The fraud has been reported so far in 11 states, including Oklahoma , Illinois , and Colorado , AZ and more – and probably appearing soon in your neighborhood!
YOU CAN HELP US OUTAlmost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary (AHGRRS) operates solely on private donations and corporate or organizational grants. Right now you can help us in our attempt to win a $1,000.00 grant from The Animal Rescue Site's Shelter Challenge. The below logo link will take you to the Animal Rescue Site (dad fixed it) where you will get to click to donate a free bowl of food to homeless animals. After you do that you will be presented with a "Thank You" page; at the right side of the top of that page please click on the "VOTE TODAY" button. That will then take you directly to the voting page. The only information that you need to enter is to select "WV" in the State box from the drop down menu and then click on "Search." The page will then do its' thing and will end up showing a list of shelters. The second shelter on the list will be "Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue & Sanctuary, Inc. Capon Bridge, WV 26714." A "VOTE" button will also appear. Simply click on that "VOTE" button. After you vote you will see a confirmation page that requires you to identify an animal photo; this eliminates illegal machine voting. The answer is simply the type of animal that you see; dog, cat, turtle, fish, cow, etc. - not a specific breed. You can cast one vote everyday from as many different computers to which you have access. Actually, you can vote in the early morning and then again in the evening after about 8-10 hours; you can also vote from different browser such as MS-Explorer, Yahoo, Firefox and Google Chrome. Voting will run for about six more weeks. You can have the Animal Rescue Site send you a daily reminder to "click" for free food; then you can vote in the All-Star Shelter Challenge. The more friends you can rally to vote the better our chances of winning. Every vote, every day, every computer - counts. On our blog we provide a status report of how we're doing; right now not so hot - 2nd place and slipping. Won't you please take the time to help out a senior Golden?
VOTING STATUS:Slipped further back a little bit more today in the West Virginia state competition, as of 2/18/2011, AHGRRS is in 2nd place and the gap is widening a bit. We can get back to #1 again over a few days if ya'll don't give up your effort---- VOTE We've got 17.46% of the WV vote today, down from yesterday when we had 17.52% ; #1 has 26.08%,up more than us from yesterday when they had 26.02%. There's now a 8.62% gap (8.50% yesterday) which, hopefully, we can close in with just a week of heavy voting. We're now at #113 nationally; same as yesterday when we were #113. The WV #1 shelter is at #54 nationally (yesterday #55); now still 59 spots ahead of us; it was 58 spots ahead of us yesterday. We are truly appreciative of your voting efforts on our behalf. Please, let's keep up the surge.
