Thank you Zinger for sponsoring Lieut Charles A. Hammond. |
Remember those who served and died for their country.
A SPECIAL THANKS FOR ALL THOSE WHO SEND ME EDITS AND ESPECIALLY THOSE WHO HAVE WORKED WITH ME ON THE CEMETERIES I CLEAN UP,
notably Don and Mike, who continue to work tirelessly on this project.
Humour is a Lifesaver, It sends out happy chemicals in the body. It wipes a tear away and helps us put things in perspective.
Without it our lives are drab and serious to a fault. If we can make fun of ourselves we won't take ourselves so seriously.
GRAVE UNDERTAKINGS :)
Am compiling dupes with both maiden & married names in many cemeteries in SIMCOE CO. Admin will then run the deduper when done.
Quiz: What Is A Deduper you ask?
Answer: choose from -
1. a program to straighten out a person who dupes another person by passing off a gr gr gr gr gr grandparent as their grandparent in a transfer request?
2. A dance from the 40's.
3. A shrinks couch
4. a program that erases and erases dupes like a rabbit making carrots disappear in Mr. MacGreggor's carrot patch.
What's A Dupe
1. A memorial with a lookalike.
2. A memorial with an alter ego
Excuses for a dupe.
1.The computer made me do it.
2.I like making them because it gives different points of view

CHALKING STONES. - It has a name .... ..."VANDALISM" It's a Crime and You can be charged.
So someone chalks the numbers on your house,so they can better read them, OR
Someone chalks your vehicles licence plates because they are old and barely readable. OR
Someone thinks it's great to chalk your neighbours house with graffiti. OR
.......Well you get the picture.
One remote northern Canadian town recently meted out punishment for such an offence. The townfolk grabbed an unsuspecting chalker in the act. The unruly mob then proceeded to strip off his shirt et. etc. etc. and chalk his entire person with brilliant hues of purple, orange and lime green.... Then, paraded him, wearing a billboard sign listing his actions, around the town square, hoping to embarrass him enough to stop his nefarious deeds.
Unfortunately, being an attention seeker,he liked it and chalked even more.
The next time they quickly slapped a $5000. fine and sent him on his way.
The town's cemetery board then posted a large sign at the cemetery entrance, reading.
"Your chalking isn't funny
So your gonna lose some money
..."$5,000. to be exact"
How do you like that!
(Of coarse it's a true story, would I lie.)
TRANSFER REQUESTS, within guidelines.
Please State : 1. NAME. 2. YOUR RELATION-
SHIP. 3. MEMORIAL NUMBER and LINK.
Without this I will not respond.
Now this gets tricky. a few, skip and jump over the guideline bit and give rebuttals(not to be confused with butterscotch candies with a splash of rum flavouring) I would love those.
so, yeah yeah I know, I'm in it for the numbers, a selfish, possessive, miserly pea picking memorial hoarder, enjoy dangling candy in front of a salivating baby ( I did that once)
and the scourge of all those who have a magnificent bio for ?X gr grandma Perkins who died in 1700, which usually reads "0" or"Grandma Perkins died in 1700.
so I plead guilty guilty mea culpa...sigh.
Most common accusations I get for not transferring .."You're just in it for the numbers"
My Response.Yes! Yes! Yes! Oh yes! More! more! more! ( deliriously jumping up and down.)
Oh when oh when will I make the top 50 list (laughing maniacally), as the men in the white coats take me away.
Going Back In Time
Mulmer farmer strikes oil and gas after drilling for water down to 225 ft. After Hitting shale the water burst up filled with oil to considerable height and had a pressure reading of 2000 pounds.
Owners of neighbouring properties fantasize about becoming rich oil barons.

Doctor: Sorry I can't tell you the results of your test..I don't understand the abbreviations.
Patient:You're kidding, right? You are kidding.
Lawyer: And when you did the autopsy on Mr. Smith, he was dead right?
Witness (Coroner) : Yes, just like your brain.
My cardiologist told me I had a life threatening heart problem and said at least now you can get all of your affairs in order.. Am trying to decide should I have the cataract on my other eye removed so I can go out with 20 /20 vision and see where I'm going.
PLEASE MAKE USE OF ALL OF THE FEATURES OF EDIT as it covers everything.
THIS MAKES THINGS EASIER AND FASTER FOR ALL CONCERNED.
For those who want to frustrate me by not using edit,and providing extra work for me, go ahead and make my day.
