Whadda Ya Think?

     I'm sure there must be a way to embed photos in the AOHELL journals, but I'm not intelligent enough to figure that out!

     So for now, you'll just have to enlarge the picture at the top to get a closer view of my latest "Raising MS Awareness" project...it is painfully apparent I have WAY TOO MUCH time on my hands...

I'm going to try to get you an answer to embeded photos (in my 'spare' time - Yeah...Right!) but I wanted to know if you saw this: http://www.toptensources.com/topten/Multiple-Sclerosis/
I was doing a google on 'brain cheese' to see if your site popped up, and if so, at what ranking - this to perhaps add a line similar to "AOL Keyword..." underneath your URL in your graphic...this new line being "google Brain Cheese"....
Unfortunately, this didn't work to well, but I thought I'd put you on to this other site, which you prolly know about.
Q - when you do know about Ty anti-'s? be well, bb

BILLIBOTTON:  Hey!  Thanks for checking on "Cheese"...AOHELL journals are a bit "odd" to use most of the time...half the features only work sometimes and the other half seem rather useless.  But who's complaining?!?  I have considered moving "Cheese" to another blog spot, but I'm too computer stupid and lazy to do this...after all, I fear change! LOL

I DO know about the Top10sources site...Mckenzie Chan sent me an email a few months ago to advise.  She also sent a way to add their link to "Cheese", but...well...the stupid factor follows me everywhere I go!

Do you have MS? (You may have already said this in a comment...please forgive me.)  And if so, wanna share some stories?

Hi, again...!

You asked:
<<Do you have MS? (You may have already said this in a comment...please forgive me.)  And if so, wanna share some stories?>>

I do not have MS, but ....(there always seems to be a 'but', doesn't there???) my dearest friend on this green Earth's daughter was DX'd with RRMS in 2002.  I hate-hate-hate watching this little 26 yo walking with a cane, hate it more she has to, and that's strong cuz I don't really hate 'anything', 'cept stuff that hurts people. All that said, I love yer blog, humor, creedo....courage. You could own a store, "Guts 'R' Us". I'm sendin' Maggi (Oh, She of the Cane...grrr...) Thanks.

BILLIBOTTON:  I AM relieved to hear you, yourself, do NOT have MS...chalk one up for missing THAT lightening strike in your DNA!!!  But I am so sorry to hear you are a "watcher" of someone with MS so very close to you.  I have never been a "watcher" of MS because I have it...and I may be stepping on a very thin branch here by saying I cannot imagine what it must be like to be a caretaker/observer/friend of someone with MS.  As helpless and scared as I feel WITH my MS, I can only imagine the fear and helplessness someone must feel gazing into my glass MS fishbowl.  My hat is off to you for finding the courage to "stick with it", to become educated about MS, and to continue to find ways of relating to your friend (friend's daughter) and supporting her through this time.
It is people like YOU who are gifts to those of us with MS...the people who go ahead and look at the car accident by the side of the road, get out of your vehicle to render aid, and DO NOT simply drive by as though unaware of the pain or tragedy.  Thank you...

Bait -
<<I may be stepping on a very thin branch here by saying I cannot imagine what it must be like to be a caretaker/observer/friend of someone with MS.  >> No need to fear the thin-ness of this branch, go ahead on. you're fine-fine.

<<As helpless and scared as I feel WITH my MS, I can only imagine the fear and helplessness someone must feel gazing into my glass MS fishbowl.>> It hurtz like a s.o.b. and it's not FAIR....

<<...the people who go ahead and look at the car accident by the side of the road, get out of your vehicle to render aid, and DO NOT simply drive by as though unaware of the pain or tragedy.  >>

Been there 4 or 5 times in my life, 46 yo, lived in Germany, Crete, Korea...people f#%k up most often in a vehicle, I could never just drive on, and now happily live with the happiness of helping (First On!) and sadly with the sadness of others loss (too LATE???)...<sigh>

but this is not-not about me-me-me...exit, stage LEFT.....
Be well MF, BB
PS - I'm listening to the Wallflowers (Jakob Dylan, son of Bob)...Bringing down the Horse...if you don't have it I'll burn ya a copy...very therapeutic.

I think it is a great idea!  I have created a similar thing/logo if you will with my site.  It is kind of a box with a variety of words from the website in different sizes and bolds with my web address at the bottom.  I thought of using that to make T-shirts for creating a team for the MS walk in April.  Your saying is very catchy I must say.  :)

CROVIRA2:  Sure!!!  I don't know how to "zip", "link", "shrink", or "upload" anything, however, so you may be on your own figuring out how to get the graphic off this website!  Glad to see you back...

BILLIBOTTON:  I like the way you think...and your choice in music as well! LOL

Actually, it IS all about you-you-you as far as your life goes and your experiences are important to share.  Thanks for putting a few of them down here on "Cheese" for folks to read (as well as myself)...I appreciate your input.

HAGARTYJJ/Jaime:  I'll have to get over to your blog and check out the logo/thingy you've created!  I think we SHOULD make up some T-shirts or bumper stickers or something...I'd like to come up with something a little more on the edge of reason as I personally like the "shock" value.  One of the bestest T-shirts I saw recently was the disabled parking sticker (you know the one with the wheelchair person...or is that a ring coming out of someone's arse?  Hard to tell!) and underneath it it read, "Can't Beat The Parking"!!!  Now that's a MUST have tee as far as I'm concerned...

I know, you could start up a syndicated feed in a BlogSpot and then just have links to it form AOL ... yeah .... ;)

baitulos said...

MDMHVONPA:  Let me dissect your comment...

"I know, you could start up a syndicated feed (HAVE NO CLUE WHAT THIS IS) in a BlogSpot (BLOGSPOT?  WHAT IS THAT?  SOUNDS LIKE SOMETHING CONTAGIOUS) and then just have links (SAUSAGE OR OTHERWISE?) to it"

Your comment spoken like a truly educated computer man and my responses...well...let's just say I'm clueless and leave it at that!

Okay, so now I'm laughing even more so!  Are you going into business with these?  Let me know...can I be your publicist er....whatever it's called?  Business manager?  Ughh...the lesions...it's the lesions.....

Hey, one more idea...add all your fave bloggers web addresses to the shirt....lol.  We could use some advertisement!  (ahem...that is only if I'm one of them!)

Da Bears Biggest Fan!

baitulos said...

SUZY:  Great idea about adding the bloggers addys to it!!!  And of course, you're one of my favorite bloggers!  Silly girl...hey, have you gotten your loot yet from Washington State?  Just wondering...
