CAPS LOCK KEY, ALL CAPS TEXT




FOR THOSE OF YOU UNAWARE OF THE FULL NAME OF THIS BLOG, IT IS 
"THE HEMLOCK TEA ROOM AND LADIES' EMPORIUM". 

ON THE "LADIES' EMPORIUM" SIDE, ONE JUST MAY FIND BOTH "BIG GIRL PANTIES", AND A SIMILAR MODEL FOR MEN.
LOOKS LIKE A FEW OF YOU MAY NEED A COUPLE PAIR???

RECENT WHINES BY ABOVE-MENTIONED 'COUPLE' WHO WANDERED IN HERE FORCE ME TO REITERATE THE MESSAGE RE: WRITING IN ALL CAPS.

FOR THE 20th OR SO TIME ... I USE ALL CAPS FOR 3 MAIN REASONS....

(1) NEEDING A LENS WITH NOT BIFOCALS OR TRIFOCALS, BUT 5 DIFFERENT LENSES, I MUDDLE THROUGH WITH BIFOCALS.
EVEN 3 LENSES IN A PAIR OF GLASSES MADE ME ILL.

GENETICALLY, VERY POOR EYESIGHT WAS WHAT I DREW FROM THE GENE POOL.
ALL CAPS MEANS I DON'T HAVE TO MAGNIFY A PAGE AND SCROLL ACROSS IT AT A SNAIL'S PACE IN ORDER TO TYPE TO ACCOMMODATE WHINERS.

(2) ALL CAPS OBVIOUSLY IRRITATES THOSE WHO ARE MOST EASILY IRRITATED.

I LIVE TO SERVE.

PLEASE, FEEL FREE TO BE IRRITATED.
ANYTHING ELSE I CAN DO TO HELP YOU ON YOUR MISSION TO BE EASILY IRRITATED, GET IN TOUCH.


ANONYMOUS AND "UNKNOWN" COMMENTERS WILL NOT BE POSTED 99.5% OF THE TIME, HOWEVER, AS I HAVE STATED ABOUT 20 TIMES NOW AS WELL.
THEY JUST GET TOSSED.


IF ALL CAPS IRRITATE YOU, REMEMBER THESE 2 THINGS:
a. ONLY YOU CARE IF IT IRRITATES YOU.
b. NO ONE DRAGGED YOU HERE TO READ AND NO ONE FORCES YOU TO RETURN.


(3) AND MY PERSONAL FAVORITE...

THIS IS MY BLOG.
I DO AS I PLEASE HERE.
IF I DECIDE TO WRITE THIS THING IN HORSE MANURE INK AND HIGHLIGHT IT ALL IN URINE YELLOW, I WILL FIND A WAY.

7 DECADES ON THIS PLANET TAUGHT ME TO STOP EVEN THINKING ABOUT "WHAT PEOPLE 'MIGHT' SAY, THINK OR DO" IN RESPONSE TO ANYTHING I MAY SAY, THINK OR DO.
I HAVE NEVER HAD HYPERTENSION, "NERVOUSNESS", OR ANY RELATED DISORDERS THAT COME OF FOREVER WONDERING ABOUT OTHERS' RESPONSES.

LIFE IS GOOD WHEN THAT JUST DOESN'T MATTER.


WHAT PEOPLE DECIDE FOR THEMSELVES, IN THE PRIVACY OF THEIR OWN MINDS, IS UP TO EACH INDIVIDUAL.

I DECIDED I BLOODY WELL LIKE ALL CAPS.
MAKES IT EASIER FOR ME AND I WRITE THE BLOGS HERE, SANS A WEE, REMOTE THOUGHT AS TO WHETHER OR NOT IT WILL BE READ AT ALL, OR IF ANYONE WILL LIKE OR DISLIKE ANYTHING ABOUT IT.


HONESTY IS ALWAYS THE BEST POLICY.
THAT'S JUST THE HONEST TRUTH OF THE MATTER....UMMM, "NO HOLDS BARRED".


I DON'T MUCH LIKE HAVING TO READ COMMENTS THAT ARE NOT IN ALL CAPS, BUT I DON'T BITCH ABOUT IT.

SO...
HAVE A CUP OF HEMLOCK TEA...OR DON'T...

    2. I THOUGHT MY PROFILE WOULD PRINT MY NAME "MARGARET BU-SHEY" THANKS FOR NOT TOSSING ME AS AN "ANONYMOUS". AS A SERIOUS SEEKER OF THE TRUTH I'VE FOUND YOUR BLOG INSPIRING. AT PRESENT I'M READING/STUDYING YOUR ARCHIVES SO I'LL KNOW HOW IN THE FUTURE TO ASK FOOLISH QUESTIONS OR OFFER MY OWN COMMENTS THAT WON'T INSULT YOUR INTELLIGENCE. YOUR INSIGHTS ON ISLAM HELPED GUIDE MY OWN QUESTIONS. I AM ALSO BLIND AS A BAT BUT MY RADAR FOR SERIOUS THOUGHT IS WORKING AS GOD INTENDED IT TO. THANKS FOR YOU BLOG.

    3. @ Margaret, well, your name DID appear when I clicked on "Unknown" to see where that led, as this has happened before. So, since a name appeared, yup, publish the comment.
      As to Islam...for a couple years in the 1960s, was living in the Middle East, mainly Bahrain, Kuwait, Iran. If it has changed for the BETTER, great, but I don't see it. The Shah was in power then so one might think it would be fine to be an American in Tehran...NOPE! Until Americans have experienced Islam in an Islamic nation, they don't have a CLUE about PURE ISLAM, the REALITY.
      I don't care if someone chooses Islam..I DO care if that means I become a TARGET.
      I never try to "convert: anyone to anything &^ expect the same from all quarters...or a very big problem just might arise from being targeted for "conversion".
      We escaped with our lives, never going back, so that should be a wrap.

      I'm trying a NEW thing, might interest you, a HUGE LIGHTED keyboard as I am a hunt-and-peck typist...so I type, don't look to edit, all ahead full and, ummm, "Damn the typos"?

      All the best.
      Thanks for reading.
      Oh, & BTW, NOTHING is foolish when it's a question...we ALL question to LEARN, & knowledge gives POWER to survive & thrive.

    4. To any/all my "gentle readers" ...Re: IQ.
      Having a good score on those IQ tests may be a goal, a noble hope, whatever, but don't we all know "smart people" with 200+ IQs who can't match socks? Maybe WE are those people?
      Surely I am not the only one with pals like that?
      IQs in the high range is one thing, COMMON SENSE trumps that, in my unhumble opinion. (Neither humility nor patience are on my "must-have" list). So for ALL of you who might bother to read this...Yeah, I adore the old Hemlock Drinker, but even though he SEEMED like a really smart guy, he DID drink that tea!
      A "street-smart" kid would NOT have done that, let's face it.
      So, whether you're in Mensa since you were 6 or you struggle with spelling cat, leave any comment, ask any question, but DO use a name. I'm NOT fond of struggling through a bazillion "Anonymous" comments & finding 9/10ths are just commenting to ADVERTISE or link to some stupid webpage that wants you to buy something.

      IQ...forget that!
      Let's go for good old COMMON SENSE.

      Now, you may fire when ready... I ask NO quarter & give none.
