I Vote For The Elusive Deer

My Nephew-in-Law is going to be on T.V.  He is a Hunter.

As you all know, I am the complete, opposite direction however, I’m sure some of you believe in hunting so you may wish to watch this episode plus, there is a vote at the end.  I have included the written preview of the show but I don’t know how to include the link to the video.

Unfortunately, I watched the video preview because my sister said it was safe for me to watch.  It wasn’t.

“Swat team members, avid hunters, and brothers Regan and Ryan McCarthy scale the steep mountains of Arizona in pursuit of record-book couse deer. Be sure to check out this all new episode April 18 exclusively on the Sportsman Channel. — with Regan McCarthy and 2 others at Arizona.”

I Think It’s Still A Secret

My make-up is starting to get old and it is time to buy new.  I do not use make-up that is tested on animals and decided not to go to Origins this time at Macy’s as it is a bit expensive, plus, I think their product line may have changed from checking their website.  I thought of local malls and decided to ask Victoria’s Secret via e-mail if they animal test and this is their response.

“Victoria’s Secret does not test its products on animals, nor does it request any of our third-party manufacturers, or anyone else to perform such tests on its behalf. We utilize ingredients in our formulations that are judged safe, and we do not ask the supplier of those ingredients to perform any such tests on animals.

If there is anything else with which we can further assist you, please be sure to email or call us at any time.’

What does this mean exactly?  They don’t do animal testing themselves and they don’t REQUEST their third-party manufacturers to perform such tests on their behalf?  I should hope not!  “Would you please test this in the eye of a rabbit (who does not have tear ducts) just to see how it reacts before we sell this to a human? , You will?  Great.  Thanks so much.”  What a ridiculous statement,that was.  I take that response to mean..we don’t have a clue or we will not give you that information because either we don’t want you to know or we don’t want to take the time to know the facts ourselves.  If they do know the facts, some people may stop buying make-up there.

Needless to say, I found another company online that guarantee’s no animal testing of their products and decided to buy from them.

What is your opinion of this response?


I am in shock over what I found out today and I am a bit relieved and a bit not.  I had a long conversation with my Ex’s Ex-Girlfriends Mother.  Let me go back in case you haven’t been following.

I am writing a book about an abusive relationship I was in for about 4 years or more.  This took place many years ago.  At the time, he had a girlfriend prior to me who was still a big part of his life because they had a child together.  l am still in fear of this man and want/need to know where he is at present as I write my book.  Maybe in one way it will give me a conclusion for the book.  I remembered the name of her father and found his number.  I called yesterday and his Caregiver had said to call back today or he would call me.  I could not wait so I called back and her mother answered the phone.  Her mother remembered having a conversation with my mother once.

Suffice it to say, their daughter, (His Ex at the time)  is back with him and they live not to far from me.  Actually, close to the hospital I go to about every 3 months.  Apparently, he is still not working and she supports him.  He does not have a car.

She said I should not worry as he has probably forgotten who I even am; but she does not know him like I did.  His daughter wants nothing to do with him and calls him by his first name.  She and her husband practically raised his daughter (their Grand-Daughter) and she has a degree in psychology now.  I hope I didn’t make a mistake asking her if she would ask her Grand-Daughter to let me know if  he should ever die but it is something I would really like to know.  She said she and her husband are devastated that her daughter took him back.  I trust and pray that she will not mention to her daughter that I called.

Continuation of Ex Search Post

After 2 wrong numbers and calling Information ( I haven’t called them in years..almost forgot that number. HA!) I finally found the correct number for the father of my Ex’s Ex-Girlfriend.  I reached his Caregiver who took my information and said he will call me back.  I hope he is okay enough to remember who I am talking about.  I may need to find where his daughter is to get a hold of her although I really do not want to go that route if I don’t have to.  But, the first step is taken and I do feel a bit relieved.

I made it to the Lab today so I can now schedule the CT Scan soon.  I also went to Starbuck’s which I alway’s do after labs to treat myself after a rough morning then to Fresh-&-Easy which just opened in our area.  It’s a bit smaller than most of the others and I wasn’t overly impressed with their Vegetarian selections but they do have some really good things I’ve never tried and I love that it’s close.  One thing I don’t like though is doing my own bagging of groceries.  I did not choose to go shopping to be my own Bagger.  What are we paying employee’s for now?
