Stampede death on Black Friday

Good deals and an opportunity to save a bundle the day after Thanksgiving, has left one man dead. This story is just so sad to me. A temporary employee of Walmart was pushed to the ground, while a crowd of 2,000+ people rushed to get into the store. Thirty four year old Jdimytai Damour was employed by Walmart as Seasonal Help, which most likely means he was just trying to earn a little extra money during the holidays. And now he is dead.

How can this happen? Are people so caught up in the materialism of the holiday that they forget how to treat other human beings? This poor man was shoved to the ground, and then walked on by everyone that came in contact with him. Not one person stopped to try to help him. Perhaps they too were afraid of being stomped on if they didn't continue walking?

Jdimytai Damour may have been the only death at the scene, but at least three other shoppers also suffered minor injuries. One 28 year old woman, who is eight months pregnant, was also injured, but said to be doing alright.

I can't imagine the horror of being caught under a stampede of people. Here is a video of last year's Black Friday stampede at a different Walmart. WHY are these people allowed to run and shove like this?

Play Simon Says with Santa!

My kids and I love this website. We play on it every year. How it works is you type in something you'd like to see Santa do and then watch him respond. Try typing in things like: eat, kill elf, dance, burp, tackle tree, drink beer.

Use your imagination and try to stump him. It's fun! The site is called: Simon Sez Santa.

I sold out.

Okay.......I've been away for awhile, and in all honesty it is because of money. Blogging is fun, but there's no moula involved. It's just something to pass the time. However, I found a website that actually pays you to write articles, so I've been spending LOTS of time there. Basically, I sold out.

But I am sharing the wealth by telling you about it! See? Some good did come out of it. (wink-wink) If you like to put your thoughts onto paper, and possibly make a little money in the process, check out this site. Associated Content.

Not to toot my own horn (OKAY, I'm tooting it!) but I was named one of three top new producers for the month of October! YEAH ME! Why not check out some of the things I've written? You never know, you could be inspired to write something yourself. Membership is free, and you meet lots of other people that share the same passion for writing.

Thank God the election's almost here!

Yeah! It's almost over......all those negative ads.........all the lies........all the.........POLITICS! I'll be so glad when my phone stops ringing with political messages. So relieved when my mailbox isn't full of political newsletters.

But until then.....let's have a laugh or two at the hopeful candidate's expense!

Here is the very popular McCain/Obama dance off. GREAT!

And you MUST visit this website. It's just fun! The more stuff you click, the more things happen. Don't just open the door once. Do it lots of times and see what different things appear. Save the red phone for last. It's a blast! PalinAsPresident.
