We Are Being Watched

We Are Being Watched

We are most probably being watched...me and you and everyone else that ever leaves their homes to go to public places. 

Do you ever watch that program on Thursday nights called Person Of Interest?  That quickly became one of our all time favorite TV shows.  It's just a little different and usually keeps you on your toes.  It starts out with a voice over by "Harold" and he says, "You are being watched...The government has a secret system..a machine that spies on you every single day...I know because I built it"   ooooohhh
just hearing Harold spill out those same words each week...just sends shivers down my spine...and I'm hooked....so I snuggle down in the corner of the love seat into my big plush pillow and I pull the quilt up just a little bit tighter around my neck and here we gooooooooooooo  :-)

I was answering messages on facebook and email last night...and when I went to the facebook posts and private messages I happened to see a post by a friend about two way mirrors in public places so people can spy on us....That just gave me a chill...
It said that this is getting to be such a common thing...shady people just seem to be coming out of the woodwork EVERYWHERE these days....SO we need to know what to look for...

It also said that most 2 way mirrors in public restrooms and motel rooms and other places are in-set..into the wall...But there doesn't have to be a thick wall there for anyone to get behind..beCAUSE they are putting little cameras in behind that mirror and watching you from another location.

There are several ways listed on the Internet .. that you can determine if the mirror in your motel room or a public restroom or other places is a 2 way mirror....And the easiest is to simply put your finger up against the mirror...IF you finger actually touches your finger in the mirror...it's a regular mirror...but if there is a division there or space...between your finger and the reflection of your finger in the mirror...that's because there is a glass in FRONT of that mirror and it's a 2 way mirror and someone is watching you...The post went on to say always check the mirrors very first thing and "If there is a space...Leave that place"...Now THAT is SCARY!!!

It also said you can tap on a mirror...and if it's hollow...RUN...if it sounds solid it should be ok...You can also turn off the light in the room and get right up to the mirror and cup your hands around your face to peep IN the mirror and it said if it's a 2 way mirror...you'll see at least a little bit of 'light' as YOU are peeping in....but I'd never have the nerve to do that one.....I'd be afraid I'd see someone peeping back at ME...   :-0

Billy and I watched a documentary a few years ago..and I meant to see if I could look it up online..because I'm always telling Kim about something we saw and she'll say "Oh I'll find that online"..but I just didn't have the time to fool with it...But it was a Dateline or 20/20..something very reliable...it wasn't some foo foo documentary...it was one of those hour long major news programs...and they had done a study across the country of motels and public restrooms to see how many 2 way mirrors they found and it was absolutely astonishing....They even found 2 way mirrors in a few Holiday Inns and Best Westerns AND told where they were....Of course the problem with these specific motels had already been remedied....they just happened to have shady managers that did his own dirty work when no one was looking...But some of the places they listed were unbelievable...because they were absolutely places that you and your family OR Billy and I could possibly end up...

This program also told about filthy things that we don't know are IN these places....like it says sheets in a motel are done daily of course...but it said the comforter on the beds are only done a few times a year and sometimes only about twice a year and so they tested comforters to see what kinds of germs and things they found and OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHH MY GOODNESS ...GROSS!!! So the first thing I do when we check into our motel is turn the comforter all the way down to the end of the bed....and it said the nastiest thing in the motel room is the TV clicker....and people should carry gallon plastic bags to put on the clicker as soon as they get to a motel room....

It also said that the most dangerous place for a woman...was in a public restroom and that THAT is where most rapes and abductions happen....and crazy me...I said, "Well that's CRAZY...what would a man be doing in a woman's restroom?"  Billy just looked at me with that blank stare and said, "Now dingbat will you just think about what you just said?"  :-/   OOOOOOOOOOOOOHHH...NOW I get it!!! 

My doctor in Paducah sent me to Vanderbilt once...back in about 1996...just for a doctors appointment...and we were leaving and of course I had to check out the ladies restroom...and it was a big restroom with nooks and crannies in it and when I went in...no one was in there..but in a bit I heard these footsteps that sounded like they were so SO heavy..but trying to be so SO quiet...I started shaking because I hadn't heard the restroom door open and I'll be switched...with 40 stalls in that restroom....those big old black shoes went in the one right next to me....I jumped and ran out to Billy who was setting on a bench by the balcony..and I said, "I think that's a man in the woman's restroom..we need to wait and see if he comes out and tell security" Billy said, 'No we need to get out of here" and we just left....I WILL REGRET THAT...till the day I die...because I KNOW that was a MAN...But I'm much stronger and much more worldly now  :-)  and if that were to ever happen again...I'd say to Billy..."Well if YOU'RE in a RUSH...YOU go ON and I"LL take the BUS beCAUSE...SOMEBODY has got to start trying to get these bad people off the STREET and "I" am staying HERE to see if that IS....a BAD guy."

It's getting to be a scary world out there....and it's REALLY a far cry from the world Billy and I grew up in....So be checking those mirrors and I'm going to be too....turn that comforter all the way down to the foot of the bed when you get to your motel room and put your gallon bag over the clicker...

That's it for today.....Thanks SO SO much to all of you who emailed or pm'd me yesterday about your experiences with droopy eye lid surgery....To be perfectly honest....the bad experiences FAR outweighed the good experiences..so I'm dropping the surgery idea....So I'm on facercise for the droopy eye lid and I can HONESTLY say....I can already tell a difference....That video is on youtube if you have the problem and want to see the video....it's something about a 25 second exercise for droopy eye lid...and you hold your eye brow up for 25 seconds..pushing UP and OUT...and for a little while..even after the first time...your eye lid will be raised...but you have to do it several times a day to keep it up....and I'm on it...I'll keep you posted.....

We lost another younger friend last night to a massive heart attack....Listen folks...take your health seriously....get your weight down to a reasonable weight....be sure and have magnesium/cal/zinc daily and have  a little potassium...all SO good for the heart...and you can do that by having greens, walnuts, grape juice....V8 is even higher in potassium than grape juice...but you need the grape juice to make your arteries more flexible...so have  a little of both.....You know....if we'd just have the things that make us HEALTHY ....FIRST....it would help our cravings TOO and we'd be so full from GOOD and HEALTHY food...we wouldn't have much room for junk.....so munch on walnuts...drink a little grape juice with them and at another time of the day...have a little V8....Your heart will thank you for it....

Peace and love from the canyon ...I love you all gobs and I'm so SO glad you stopped by....This is a MUST SHARE BLOG....so I hope you'll share it.....our friends and family all need to know about these 2 way mirrors....

This has been a bird's eye view of the katydid...and until next time...you are loved!!!!!!!!
