The Choking Game ~ Have you heard of this?!?

In watching the Today Showthis morning they did a spot light feature on The Choking Game. I find this very alarming as a parent and also just as a concerned citizen!
How can our children be this irresponsible? Do they not recognise the dangers in this very dangerous practice? There are just so many things that can go wrong when they are playing this so called 'game'! My lord! I get the chills just thinking of my own children playing this when they get a little bit older.

Here is just a little bit of info for those of you that don't have the time to go and check out the full article:

The Choking game is a 'game' that children play where they either have a friend 'choke' them until they pass out, or they rig up some kind of rope, or scarf or something that will literally 'hang' them until they pass out. Now the most dangerous part of this is the fact that when they are by themselves once the child passes out, they have no control over what their body does.

Sometimes their body will just slip out of the make-shift 'noose' that they have rigged, but in sometimes 'fatal' choking game incidences their bodies have stayed leaning or caught in the nooses or contraptions that they have rigged and they have strangled to death.

This is NOT A GAME and all parents and guardians should be aware of the danger signs of their children playing this game! It has been around for years, and most kids whether they will admit it or not have heard of it, and most of them have participated in it in some form or another.

Here are the most obvious warning signs that your child is participating in this very dangerous game:

*Marks on the neck from ligatures(ropes)or from other peoples hands
*Frequent headaches
*Blood-shot eyes
*Closed or frequently locked bedroom doors

Some of these signs may not necessarily mean that your child is participating in this 'game', but there is a very simple way to find out, TALK TO YOUR CHILD! There is nothing better than good old fashioned communication when it comes to finding out what your children are doing.

If you find this information useful, PLEASE PLEASE forward it on, or refer someone to the website or this link and pass this information on to everyone, as I don't want to see any more children hurt from playing this senseless game. I can't imagine what the parents of those unfortunate children must be going through.

Payperpost actually pays!!!!!!!!

Alright here is the deal with all the review me little thingy maboppers on the site now.

I finally got my first payment from Payperpost and want to spread the happy news with everyone else! Go jenny! I have been waiting to promote Payperpost fully until I got my first payment as things were a little sketchy for a while as I got things a little mixed around on my first couple of posts and had a couple rejected as I didn't do things exactly right. {boy are they picky on some things}

I try not to promote websites and money making opportunities until I have been paid, or until I have researched them fully and know that it will be a good prospect for everyone. I don't want someone to jump in whole-heartedly and then find out that it was all a scam and a big old waste of time. That is not what I am hear for. I want all of us to succeed and make a living staying at home. ;0)

I figure if I can do it, anyone can! lol

I am by no means a genius or a guru of any kind. I am just a stay at home mom that is looking for some good opportunities to make some money without spending all my money. So any website that offers me a free opportunity to earn some money for writing some posts is right up my alley. That is exactly what payperpost is all about. They pay you to promote different advertisers on your site.

Not all of the opportunities are going to be open to you at first and not all of them are going to be to your liking either. As you may have noticed, I haven't done more than three opportunities until now. And this post is for my own benefit and to tell other people what payperpost is all about, if they don't already know.

This post has a little review me button at the end that will take you to a special review me page that will have you review my post that you are reading or any other that I have selected that have the same button on them. For every review that is done my tack rating goes up and I will be able to do more opportunities. I can't wait because most of the opportunities that I am really interesting in doing I am not able to do yet.

Now, to be completely honest I have not done a review yet, but when I find a post on a blog that I really like I will certainly do one. I just don't see many bloggers promoting this affiliate program yet. I really don't understand why, as it is a really good program, but it is in it's first stags of progress, so I am sure that more people will be promoting it as it gets more attention.

So, I guess what I am saying is that if you feel that my posts/articles inspire you in some way please show your support and review me. I greatly appreciate everyone's support, and if you are a member of payperpost send me your blog link and I will do a review for you also. I always try to pay back any support that is given to me in kind.

Best wishes to all. And make sure to check out this great program.


The shrine circus

Ok, well, the circus wasn't all it was cracked up to be. We left at intermission because for one, I had a terrible headache, and for another I couldn't stand to see the animals like that! I love animals in all their glory and cannot stand to see them mishandled in any way. Not to say that they were or anything like that, but I just cannot stand to see us humans using animals to do tricks.

I know, you all are thinking then why did she go to the circus?!? Well for one, my children wanted to go. And for another, I support the Shrine Club and what they do. They have a lot of worthy causes that they support and they benefit a lot of very sick kids and I can really get behind that.

But I think as far as next year goes, I will be just sending my money in and not attending the circus.

I will go to the zoo from now on for my wild animal fix. Enough said.

If you want to read my more lengthy response to the circus you can go to my other blog and read it there. I just wanted to follow through with the update that I promised a couple of days ago. ;0)
