I work at the police department and even though I'm not an officer I learn so many things from reading their reports.  I thought I would share some of the wisdom that I learned from just one shift. 

If you have warrants and you think you are smart and will give a fake name and birthdate to fool the officers, be smart enough not to tell the officers your birthday is November 31.  Congratulations you have just added failure to ID to your charges.  Another suggestion, take c...

JUst one of those email forwards but I thought it was funny enough to share with the joeuser crowd.  I did not write this so don't be patting me on the back or beating me senseless over the content. 

When I was a kid, adults used to bore me to tears with their tedious diatribes about how hard things were. When they were growing up; what with walking twenty-five miles to school every morning.... Uphill... Barefoot... BOTH ways… yadda, yadda, yadda 

And ...

"When we choose not to focus on what's missing in our lives but are grateful for the abundance that is present...we experience heaven on earth."

Today was a fabulous day!  First of all today is my day off which is always nice.  I can't imagine how people that work seven days a week do it.  It is so nice to have that break to relax and recharge.

I miss my JU! friends who have left the site.  I am trying to convince them to return, visit? something.  I am glad to have made some friends on this site.  Some I have stayed in touch with via email.  I have several that are friends on Facebook.  It's just not the same as the interaction we had on this site. 

By the way, I really like Myspace better than Facebook.  Mainly because I love music.  Myspace is such a wonderful place to discover new bands, s...

I have been feeling sentimental, nostalgic...maudlin of late.   I think it is horrible to live in the past and always think what's done was so much better than what we have now.  I guess we all have the tendency to look back and see the good and let the bad remain fuzzy.  That said here is some of what I miss from former times and places in my life.

Tiffin, Ohio - born and raised and lived there the first 18 years of my life.  What do I miss?  Knowing everyone.&n...

Hello everyone.  I have been working for the police department for four months now and there are certain things I notice that seem to cause numerous people numerous problems so in my spirit of helpfulness and love I thought I would share some tips. 

Okay, number one.  Know your license plate.  Memorize it.  Or write it down.  Even better write down the license plates of everyone you love - your husband, wife, son, daughter, mom, dad etc.  The reason is that ...
