Rants and raves

THIS IS A BIG RAVE for Martha Stewart from the Augusta Care office. She is simply the best and she really, really cares about Augusta. May God bless her.

A RANT TO ALL the people who think gasoline is an entitlement. If you don't like the price of any product, don't buy it. We all should be lucky that we're not paying $10 a gallon.

TO THE NICE gentleman who paid for my lunch June 8 at Ruby Tuesday in North Augusta, thank you.

COACH JIMMY LEWIS does a great job and he does the best he can with what he has to work with.

PAUL BROUN, it is totally hypocritical for you to tell your supporters that you wouldn't run a negative campaign and that Barry Fleming is calling you all sorts of names, then five minutes later turn around and call him the forces of evil.

WHAT? NO GOLF without Tiger Woods? I'm sure the world will survive.

COLUMBIA COUNTY, in spite of your education and your wealth, you are no better than the rest of the CSRA when it comes to treatment of animals.

I'M TIRED OF PUTTING all these applications in and I'm the best cook there is and they won't hire me, but you see signs everywhere saying they're hiring.

I WANT TO RAVE to my next door neighbor who brings in my paper and also the mail every morning rain or shine.

SO, MR. HARBIN'S DUI case is delayed for the fifth time in search of a witness. That's to laugh about. The time I got a DUI the only witness needed was a police officer.

I'D LIKE TO RAVE about Rosemary at the Columbia County Sheriff's Office. She was very friendly, and did a great job in setting us up for the Health Watch program. Keep up the great work and thank you.

COLUMBIA COUNTY animal control, please patrol Lavista Drive during the daytime and the nighttime. It is impossible to sleep out here.

A RAVE FOR THE LADY who put out the rave for Magic Carpet Clean. Because of her, these guys came out and cleaned my carpet, and they are the best.

Good grief PTHS, if I

Good grief PTHS, if I considered what I wrote today a crisis, I'd just plain give up entirely! LOL. I have had a few days that have been top of the line as a matter of fact. The same day my old lawn mower collapsed, the one I ordered last week arrived. I put it together this morning and it mows like a breeze. I have just welcomed a newcomer to the family who is absolutely beautiful and my children are busy, one's gone camping with friends, another went to Atlanta with friends and my ex, and the other went to visit another friend right here in town, so I got a much needed quiet afternoon just to myself. Now that I'm getting my second wind, I think I'll check and see if my parents need anything since I have to run to the store anyway. Trouble, if you want RTTB to pick up stuff fer ya, ya gotta give 'im or her a list! ;-) Ya'll have fun, I'll check in again later.

PTHS, 30906 got a good bit of rain the last few days, didn't you get any? As a matter of fact, we got stranded at the hospital for a bit because the parking lot was flooded. But since we didn't HAVE to leave yet, it was no big deal. We just waited until the parking lot drained. Thankfully we had the foresight not to park in a low area ourselves.

The latest news is that Obama

The latest news is that Obama might be considering a republican for his running mate.Very interesting. The republican senator is friends with both candidates. If not chosen as a running mate, he could be in the cabinet of whichever wins the election.

You are a brave man roll to go fishing in this humidity. All I have to do is sit outside for about 10 mins and I have a pond at my feet.

Why would Obama do that? Gotta ask that question. Can anyone pin him down on what he actually believes?

Still don't understand why. Is he cutting himself off from the Democratic Party? The parties are so partisan. Or, is he busy making backroom deals with Repubs now?

the 2 senators are friends with both Obama and McCain. If they are not chosen for VP both of them could be in the cabinet of our next President.

If Obama chooses the senator

If Obama chooses the senator from Nebraska as his running mate, or has him in his cabinet,. If he chooses him as his running mate, that would be a 1st I think.

And I am happy that neither McCain nor Obama is running a smear campaign. My opinion any smearing is from the public, but that seems to be less and less as time goes by. Anyway, this election is going to really go down in history.

The Nebraska Republican could

The Nebraska Republican could also be a contender for a Cabinet post like Defense Secretary if either Obama or McCain wins, according to strategists in both parties, because of his friendship with both candidates.
