I moderate all my comments after having the Internet trolls attack my blog with all sorts of nonsense wanting me to buys drugs, fake handbags and other delightful stuff. I also don't like publishing anonymous comments unless someone puts their name there but yesterday someone who didn't put their name to their comment hit a nerve and I published it. Here is what he or she said:
"Do you have heat in your house? Is your roof leaking? Are your windows frozen? Have your water pipes broke due to the extreme cold? Did your car start up today? Have a dead battery, flat tires or worse yet, just a dead car? Can you prepare food in your kitchen? Do you even have a kitchen? Can you prepare and eat hot foods? Do you have food? Do you have money to buy the food or do you have to wait on a line outside in the cold? Do you have clothes that are warm? Are you ill? Do you have the flu or worse yet, pneumonia? Anyone in your family sick, ill facing death? Anyone in your family living on the streets, unemployed or starving to death?
So, let me get this straight: you're just upset cause it's cold out? Well, la de dah. La de dah.
Count your blessings and keep quiet."
Have to say they are right, things could be a heck of a lot worse and honestly I have nothing to complain about as I do have heat, food, and transport and although I am still fighting a nasty cough and cold, it isn't life threatening. So yes I should count my blessings; but should I keep quiet?
Well this is MY blog and I can write about anything I want on MY blog. I am not forcing anyone to read it, so why post negative comments? Don't read MY blog if you don't want to here me whine about the weather and how bloody cold it is out there. I'm British born we complain about the weather all the time it's part of who I am!!!!
So I am going to think about what I should write about tomorrow. Better make sure I don't whine about anything though, otherwise I will be in trouble again.
P.S. Winter storm on the way here.........that's nice (Mrs. Brown says that, but what it really means is **ck off!!!)
