Saturday's Service

Here is something interesting I found it awhile ago and thought I would share it with you.

Hold the alt key down.
Then type in the numbers.
Release the keys.

Hope you can read that is as large as I can get it.

I was sooooooooooooo sad - but Sandra and Anni worked with me for two days on my blog.  I was so sad and frustrated - I love my little blog and the friends that live here.  And as far as I know it is now working.  Thank you so much.  And I have so many great friends that send me stuff to use on my blog - I love them they are as crazy as me!  I love my blogging friends.

Someones told me about this contest to win a dream home - I entered it - I could use a dream home - lol.

Don't use it if your car is older than 2012 - Thank you Sharon.


Now the disability clause - I don't know if they are 100% true - I try to check them - you feel free to check them as well.  Please do.

 Some Humor from Jackie at Teacher's Pet

Southern Home Security System

1.  Go to Goodwill and buy a pair of size 14-16 men’s work boots.
2.  Place them on your front porch along with a copy of Guns and Ammo magazine.
3.  Put 4 large dog dishes next to the boots and magazine.
4.  Leave a note on your front door that reads as follows:

Bubba,
  Me and Marcel, Donnie Ray and Jimmy Earl went for more ammo and beer.  Be back in a hour. Don’t mess with the pit bulls. They got the mailman this morning and messed him up bad. I don’t think Killer took part…but it was hard to tell from all the blood.
Anway, I locked all four of ‘em in the house. Better wait outside.
Be right back,
Cooter

P.S. You may have to "speak" Southern to understand.

And something interesting that my Canadian Viewers will LOVE - from Debby at Just Breathe:

I am forwarding; thought it was excellent work!

  The queen....shows her face transforming from a child to present.  Very well done.

a safety seminar i attended once encouraged folks to put out a big chain on a tree w/ a dog dish next to it. they asked for a good name to paint on the dog dish to deter people. i suggested 'satan'.

Linda Primmer said...

Great post with plenty of good tips.
happy Saturday to you.

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

I love Fred Rogers too. I hadn't heard that story about him and isn't it true. There are many willing helpers out there. I have heard that tale about the dog dish. I think I'll be looking for one. Lots of people are scared of dogs. Hope your Saturday is a super one!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Your blog looks great Sandie! Glad everything is fixed and working now.
hugs,Linda

Dar said...

Once again, you made my morning. I think I have to get in the Southern Security mood...I'm doing this. Just when we think we live all safe and sound, something dreadful happens.
Thanks for adding humor to reality.
The blog is looking pretty cool. I hate when things go haywire, even for a day.

I'm still laughing out loud and read to Danny- the Southern Security System and letter!! I'm sending this to my girls in downtown atlanta!! Just the pair of boots and gun magazine sitting on the front porch would help?
Also--- THANK YOU for the Alt + ###s list!! I didn't know that you can type a cent sign or a temperature symbol sign.Thank you!!

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

OK- I couldn't make the Alt + ###s work, but figured out that you have to use the number pad on the right with the number pad lock on. (I never use the number pad, so Danny looked it up for me)
Thanks again!!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Love that symbols chart, will have to try them.

Ms. A said...

I love the Southern Security System!

Nonnie said...

Uhhh, that might work until they heard my little dog barking. Love the queen pics. She has a very sweet face and lovely smile. And Mr. Rogers is right.
Your blog is looking great!
Hope you are enjoying a lovely Saturday.

Betsy Adams said...

So glad you got your 'blog' back, Sandie. I know how upsetting that can be.

Great post today with lots of laughs and good advice...
Hugs,
Betsy

Betty Manousos said...

Wanda's Wings said...

The dogs would be scarier than our two cats. lol

HOOTIN ANNI said...

Love the ammo and boots story. That sounds a bit Texan to me. Just like what I posted the other day on my blog...Thursday. You should check it out. Scroll down a bit on the post and find just by checking the red dots on how many own a gun in Texas.

Beth said...

I am glad your blog is working properly now.

The last joke was really funny!

SweetMarie said...

Lots of giggles here and great advice! Great stuff!

Ginny said...

I love the Mr. Rogers thing best of all, ALL us moms and grandmothers need to remember it!!! The first thing is very cool...Phil has always loved keyboard commands, where I am a total mouse person. But I have found there are things that break and then you can only fix them with the keyboard commands, like when your mouse is frozen.

SweetMarie said...

I also loved Mr Rogers!

jack69 said...

I enjoyed the whole entry, but thanks for the special characters. I only knew a couple. Sometimes you need these and don't know how to make them.
Anyway thanks, good stuff. The blog looks good on this end...
(((HUGS)))

Sandra said...

i just went to email and tryed the typing numbers with alt and it does work. ♥♥♥ ♫ even works here but to small fonts. i will save that list. and never learn it all. cool. and you are welcome, glad you are back to you normal page

Munir said...

Lovely post with so many nice features. My kids grew up watching Mr.Rogers. He always used to say things that are still true and good.
Have a terrific weekend.

Paula said...

Lots of good things here today Sandie. I used to know how to put a moving message across my e-mail. For the life of me I can't remember where I put the note about it.

Ruth Kelly said...

It doesn't work on a Mac.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

LOL over the burglar deterent. I like those welcome mats that say "The Neighbors Have Better Stuff"

Inger said...

I'm thrilled to get the symbols, thank you so much. I was able to enlarge it (I love my new computer) and print it out. It will sit here by my computer. And I do so love Mr. Rogers.

must love junk said...

OMGosh...thanks so much for the laugh! For some reason that security system struck me really funny and I can't stop laughing! :)

Laurie said...

such a great post, I'm so glad everything worked out!

Susan said...

Enjoyed that post, Sandie. Especially loved the video on the Queen. She's a very pretty lady, don't you think? Take care. Susan p.s. I LOVE my blogging friends, too, including YOU! And writing my blog is sheer joy.

nancygrayce said...

There is no ALT key on the iPad! Oh, that is unless I'm too dumb yo find it!

Dolores said...

Your blog looks great, but it always does..... most of all I enjoy the information and laughter that I always come away with....

I love Mr Rogers!!! Our son would sit with his thumb in his mouth watching him each afternoon and at the end of the show he would always say, "I love Mr Rogers"......

Debbie Jones said...

Great home security suggestion! I love your "Service Saturdays" Enjoy your weekend!

Soggibottom said...

hum well, some of do guns and some of us don't..
Frankie de tabby's facebook page has become a bit lighter in the last few months because of seeing people with a gun in their hand.... That cat has style... he would sooner use his claws bless him... um.... luvs... x x x

silverthoughts2 said...

I like that Mr. Rodgers quote. I'll have to remember that.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I love all of those fun shortcuts and the funnies are really funny today. I'm a Southerner...through and through so I can understand the fun, too! We used to drive up to a hiking trail in NC and pass a house that had a sign on the front door, 'Please don't kill the snakes, they eat the rats.' Would you want to break into THAT house? heehee!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

I love your blog sooo much!! its always fun!
love

Daisy said...

Thanks for the list of symbols and such. Looks like fun. Enjoyed the chuckles today too. Have a good weekend! :)

Maggie Ann said...

I loved Mr. Rogers also...what a gem of a man. A friend for all of us! I also loved your link to the Queen video. Could I link to that on my google+ page? I'm trying to get the hang of what I can do over there. Its a little like having another blog page...lol.. Happy Sunday Sandie.
