My Grandpa's Blog
my grandpa's blog is: http://ottothoughts.blogspot.com/ Its about as he states 'Comments on NY Times news' ~Maddy
From the comments:
From the comments:Here's the answers to peoples comments: (I DO READ THEM!)
91210 says: Maddy, how do you know that Al Gore would have done nothing?
They are talking about when I said: Lets all imagine that Republican Geogre W. Bush did not win the election for president L, lets pretend Al Gore, a democrat, won. As Bill Clinton, another democrat, did, he would do basically nothing, except telling people to re-elect him and spending all the money. And what would happen if the terriost attacked like September 11, 2001? Nothing…except the terroist would STILL keep on attack, and Al Gore would STILL do nothing.
Here's my answer: Did he do anything when they attacked in 1993 (When he was vice president)~Maddy
Finally its spring break. And I'm going on a cruise! So I won't probably write for this Sat.-Next Sunday (Not this Sunday the next one!)~Maddy
I keep on telling myself...

School is reallly boring and I can't stand it. I keep on telling myself...WHAT AM I DOING HERE? HOW AM I GOING TO GET OUT?~Maddy
I'm fed up.
It just so happens I I got stuck in the homeroom with THE CHATTERBOXES! Everyday Lecture after Lecture. About talking. GRRRRRR! And the the worst part is I DON'T EVEN TALK IN HOMEROOM! (Well, maybe alittle, but that's not the point) ~Maddy

Tomorrow is Springamajig, Springmajic is a school fundrasier. We use to have a circus instead, it had the elephanets and everything. But some people didn't like it, because of the animal issue, so they don't have it anymore. ~Maddy
I got this e-mail. But its really long so I cut out a part out it.
THINGS TO DO IN A ELEVATOR (Special Thanks to Manie M. who semd me this)
When there's only one other person in the elvator, tap them on the shoulder and then pretend it wasn't you.
Push the buttons and pretend they give you a shock. Smile, and go back for more.
Ask if you can push the button for other people, but push the wrong ones.
Call the Psychic Hotline from your cell phone and ask if they know what floor your on.
Hold the doors open and say you're waiting for a friend. After a while, let the doors close, and say, "Hi Greg. How's your day been?"
Drop a pen and wait until someone goes to pick it up, then scream, "That's mine!"
Bring a camera and take pictures of everyone in the elevator.
Move your desk into the elevator and whenever anyone gets on, ask if they have an appointment.
Lay down the Twister mat and ask people if they would like to play.
Leave a box in the corner, and when someone gets on, ask them if they can hear ticking.
Pretend you are a flight attendant and review emergency procedures and exits with the passengers.
Ask, "Did you feel that?"
Stand really close to someone, sniffing them occasionally.
When the doors close, announce to the others, "It's OK, don't panic, they open again!"
Swat at flies that don't exist.
Tell people that you can see their aura.
Call out, "Group Hug!" and then enforce it.
Grimace painfully while smacking your forehead and muttering, "Shut up, all of you, just shut up!"
Crack open your briefcase or purse, and while peering inside, ask, "Got enough air in there?"
Stand silently and motionless in the corner, facing the wall, without getting off.
Stare at another passenger for a while, then announce in horror, "Your one of THEM!" and back away slowly.
Wear a puppet on your hand and use it to talk to the other passengers.
Listen to the elevator walls with a stethoscope.
Make explosion noises when anyone presses a button.
Stare, grinning at another passenger for a while, then announce, "I have new socks on."
Draw a little square on the floor with chalk and announce to the other passengers, "This is MY personal space!"~Maddy
I have been going on auditions (and I'm only 11) for commericals, and my conjtract with my agent signed another year with me!~Maddy
I chose to write an essay on Why to vote Republican
Here it is:
Out of the two main political parties they’re are many reasons people should vote Republican, not Democrat. My parents are Republican, and have taught me about Republicans and Democrats--Politics in General. Although they believe strongly in the matter (Well, my dad does.) they did not make me be a Republican, I decided to be one, I thought it was correct. I also have watched the news about polictics (usually Fox News), and read books, such as The O’Reilly Factor by Bill O’Reilly who is a reporter of Fox, so I known a lot about it. I feel that the Republicans are more reasonable and right. On the other hand SOME democrats are not.
Lets all imagine that Republican Geogre W. Bush did not win the election for president L, lets pretend Al Gore, a democrat, won. As Bill Clinton, another democrat, did, he would do basically nothing, except telling people to re-elect him and spending all the money. And what would happen if the terriost attacked like September 11, 2001? Nothing…except the terroist would STILL keep on attack, and Al Gore would STILL do nothing. Do you really want someone like that as president? Frankly, I REALLY don’t.
A big issue with Republicans and Democrats is the environment. Concerning all the cute, diminutive animals and gigantic trees. Democrats are very concerned about all the factories, you know, pollution and cutting down trees, Well, without all the factories, how are we supposed to use cars? Horses? I’d like to see all you democrats on those horses. Oh…there’s one little problem….STUDIES SHOW THERE WOULD BE MORE POLLUTION BECAUSE OF ALL THE HORSES! Gosh.
Moving on to taxes, UGH! I hate taxes, I repeat I HATE TAXES! Besides giving away all your money, the worst thing thing about taxes is some people think rich people should have taxes on more things. I ask you, what ever happened to, ’For the People’ not…for the rich people. Get it? Got it? Good. Another thing that really bugs me is sales tax. Even me, a child, has to pay taxes. (What has happened to this world? Even special me has to pay taxes? AAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!) When you go to the store you have to pay extra money--Tax. Grrrrr! Take money from my parents--but not from me--that’s just plain WRONG! Now, what does this have to do with being a Republican? The Republicans want to lower the taxes. (Good.) Are you with me? Or is this confusing you? Another tax (Grrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!) is estate tax. When you die, half of that money goes to the government. And the rest goes to your friends/ sister/ brother/ mom/ dad/ aunt/ uncle/ daughter/ son/ husband/ wife/ grandma/ grandpa/ complete stranger/ and so on and so forth. Then when that person dies half the money (again) goes to the government. IT’S THE SAME MONEY! THAT’S RIDICULOUS! Oh…and was the democrats doing with all money? According to Bill O’Reilly, 3 years ago Democrats were spending 4,000,000 (yes, 4 million, 6 zeros) dollars on teaching people how to clip their toenails. (Really! No Lie! Look on pg. 150 from The O‘Reilly Factor.)
California is going through HUGE money problem, thanks to Democrat Gray Davis. He spent all California’s money. IT WAS ALL HIS FAULT! Once again, the Democrats messed up. And do you really want someone like that as president?
There are your reasons to vote Republican. Maybe I’ll run vote office someday. Pumilia…remember that name. Vote. Vote Republican. Vote Republican Maddy.~Maddy
And first...THE WAR UPDATE!

So Bush decided on a war. Goodbye Saddam.~Maddy
So I was reading a book, THE O'REILLY FACTOR, and you have to remember, this was written years ago. But the goverment spent 4,000,000 (yes, 4 million 6 zeros.) on teaching about how to cut toenails. UGH! My parents are spending their $(tax) on clipping...TOE NAILS! ITS NOT THAT HARD!~Maddy
I'm a BAD person!
Sorry a haven't written since the 11th. I've been really busy. My school play was this week and I had a Unit test in math...and blah, blah, blah!~Maddy
Me and Maddy were in our sixth grade play. It was called the Auzzimagooths and the Chizzlewinks. I was a wall, and Maddy was a Chizzlewink leader. Basically, the story was about two places that fight constantly. The wall ( that's me) separates them. When wall is stolen, every goes ballistic. They call Alozo, who knows all but always ends up talking about something else. In the end, the wall circles around everyone, and the fighting stops.
Tuesday, March 11, 2003
I'm anti-war. I think we should'nt attack Saddam. He's evil and if we attack then we'd be evil, too. Two evils don't make a right. Let him attack, we're stronger. We have the power of peace, goodness, and fairness, on our side.

Who Wants TO Be A Miliionaire~Play it @ CA Adventure. I WAS IN THE HOTSEAT!
Sunday, March 09, 2003
At California Adventure they have a re-creation of Millionaire. Exept the audience can get in the hotseat too. The stadium holds 650 people. And guess who got in the hotseat. Me. Instead of winning a $1,000,000, you win a cruise and other stuff. I of course didn't win the cruise, but I won 4 pins and a button that says I was in the hotseat. Worth:$36.00. On the 1st question I had to use 2 lifelines, but I knew the answer. I was so nervous! PRESSURE! Anyway I walked anyway on the 4th question, I WANTED THHE PINS!!!!!! But hey some grown-ups were on and 2 left only 1 question ahead and the other guy left with the button.Anyway I wanted to get right back in the hotseat, but I can't go back until April 8. My sister got 10th place once, my mom best score was 6th place and my dad got 2nd. But they all got that in game where only like 300 were playing. I got in the hotseat in a full house game.:( On the next show, for the 8th time since Nov., a guy won the cruise.~Maddy
I get my cast off tomorrow!~Maddy

Mood Swings , WHO NEEDS 'em?*
Water Vs. Coke (Yes, Leah I copyed and pasted from your e-mail.)
And I would say I HATE COKE! But this is kinda cool.
wow, who would think coke was that bad 4 u?
WATER VS COKE
This is really an eye opener.... Water VS Coke?
We all know that water is important. Let's see why:
1. 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.
2. In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is often mistaken for hunger.
3. Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism as much as 3%.
4. One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pains for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University of Washington study.
5. Lack of water, the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.
6. Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers. If you exercise, you need more than 10 glasses.
7. A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen or on a printed page.
8. Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.
And now for the properties of COKE
1. In many states (in the USA) the highway patrol carries two gallons of coke in the truck to remove blood from the highway after a car accident.
2. You can put a T-bone steak in a bowl of coke and it will be gone in two days.
3. To clean a toilet: Pour a can of Coca-Cola into the toilet bowl and let the "real thing" sit for one hour, then flush clean. The citric acid in Coke remove stains from vitreous China.
4. To remove rust spots from chrome car bumpers: Rub the bumper with a rumpled-up piece of Reynolds Wrap aluminum foil dipped in Coca-Cola.
5. To clean corrosion from car battery terminals: Pour a can of Coca-Cola over the terminals to bubble away the corrosion.
6. To loosen a rusted bolt: Applying a cloth soaked in Coca-Cola to the rusted bolt for several minutes.
7. To bake a moist ham: Empty a can of Coca-Cola into the baking pan, wrap the ham in aluminum foil, and bake. Thirty minutes before the ham is finished, remove the foil, allowing the drippings to mix with the Coke for a sumptuous brown gravy.
8. To remove grease from clothes: Empty a can of coke into a load of greasy clothes, add detergent, and run through a regular cycle.
The Coca-Cola will help loosen grease stains. It will also clean road haze from your windshield.
9. The active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid. Its pH is 2.8. It will dissolve a nail in about 4 days. Phosphoric acid also leaches calcium from bones and is a major contributor to the rising increase in osteoporosis.
10. To carry Coca-Cola syrup (the concentrate) the commercial truck must use the Hazardous Material Place Cards reserved for Highly corrosive materials.
11. The distributors of coke have been using it to clean the engines of their trucks for about 20 years!
Now the question is, would you like a coke or a glass of water?~Maddy
Ahhhhhhhhhhh! I'm full in a room with anti-war peoples!

Eric~Get a Life
Here's something someone said right after the game where Maddox came in.
Dear Voice of The Fan,
Kordell Stewart is the Best Quarterback by far. Replacing one guy on the team that has played this badly isn't going to fix its problems. I hope Tommy Maddox is the answer, but if he's not, the Steelers' superbowl hopes could sink by week 5.
KORDELL'S THE BEST? RRRRRRRRRIIIIIIIIGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SURE. WHATEVER.~Maddy
Iraqi kids deliver anti-war Christmas cards to British PM
Oh and what are you going to do about Saddam? I'm so glad we have freedon of speech unlike them. SADDAM IS BRAIN-WASHING THEM!~Maddy
I found this site: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/855036/posts
Dear Mr President,
Saddam Hussein's determination to build chemical, biological and nuclear weapons is a danger to the lives of Americans and people around the world. As Commander in Chief of America's armed forces, please order military action as soon as is reasonably possible to remove Saddam Hussein from power and ensure the disarmament of Iraq.
I am pro-war and I feel good to know I'm not the only kid~Maddy

*sigh*Today was a Book Report Day. Here was a paragraph part of the report:
The Civil War was perhaps the toughest period in American history. The “United” States divided into 2 countries. A lot of people think the only reason the south wanted independence was because of the slave issue. Most people did not go to war because of this, everyone put their state before their country, and if their state was on the south, so were they. This book, When Will This Cruel War Be Over?, taught me a lot about the Civil War, and if you read it, you will have respect for the south.~Maddy
Steelers signed Tuman
Tuman avoids free agency, signs new deal
February 28, 2003
By Teresa Varley
PITTSBURGH - Tight end Jerame Tuman avoided becoming a free agent by signing a three-year deal with the Steelers on Friday.
"I am happy to report that I signed a new contract," said Tuman, at a news conference at UPMC Sports Performance Complex. "I would like to thank Mr. Rooney, Kevin Colbert, Coach Cowher, and the whole Steelers organization for giving me an opportunity to play for a few more years here. All along, it is what I wanted and I am very thankful that I got the chance to continue playing here."
Tight end Jerame Tuman signed a three-year deal with the Steelers.
Tuman was drafted by the Steelers in the fifth round in 1999. He started seven games in 2002 for Mark Bruener, who was placed on injured reserve.
Tuman did not want to test the free agent waters, but there were times during negotiations that he didn't know if it would be necessary or not.
"It came to a point where there is a time period where you really don’t know what is going on with both sides," said Tuman. "It came to a point where I thought that may have to be the only way. But, it was never something that I wanted to do. I wanted to be a Steeler. I am really thankful that is what I get to do."
Tuman knows that his role will not change much from the past and is happy to do whatever is asked of him by the coaching staff.
"It is basically going to be the same at this point as what it was," said Tuman. "Mark Bruener is our starter and I am here to help the team in any way I can. That is all I want."
The Steelers still have three tight ends who are unsigned and will become free agents in John Allred, Marco Battaglia and Matt Cushing.
"I was wondering what was going on for a little bit there," said Tuman of the tight end situation. "We really did not have any tight ends available or any help for tight ends. I am glad we are getting back, lined up, and ready to go"~Maddy
Hey wouldn't it be cool if Bill O'Reily interviewed Saddam?~Maddy
Pro-war or Anti-war? Fox-news says:
NEW YORK — As time runs out for Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein to disarm or face a military thrashing from the United States and its allies, "pro-war" — or "anti-anti-war" — Americans are saying they have had enough of the recent protests in various cities at home and abroad.

Lets face it, people are going to die in the war. Its not becuase of Bush, its Saddam's. He kills millions of his own people. Why should we let him be? THERE is NO reason. I AM TOTALLY PRO-WAR!!!~Maddy
