if u could GO anywhere…

October 29, 2008

in the world, where would you choose to go?  I am interested because I have had several dad’s tell me to take a trip, short or long, before the baby comes.  Now before you think that I am going to run off and leave my wife at home…know that this trip is for us.  So where would you go if you could spend one night anywhere in the world?  Why?GO!

Check Out the New Thurman Family Blog!

October 26, 2008

As most of you know by now, Jill and I are expecting. Living in a different city than most of our family does not afford us many opportunities to connect on a daily basis. We have created a blog for all of you out there to keep up with what is going on in our family (I love using that word!). There is not much up as of yet but go ahead and visit the site so you can link or bookmark it for future purposes. We are excited to have the opportunity to share our lives with you and we hope to hear many comments from you guys. Looking forward to it!!

Bye Bye Cats ;(

Last Saturday Jill and I gave Oscar and Elmo back to the agency we adopted them from. It was a hard day and obviously emotional but for the better. We will miss those crazy cats but we look forward to what is next.

Ok…so it has been a while since I have posted.  Sorry for all of you who have not been able to sleep at night for the past several months because you have been obsessively checking grainoflight for my next post.  A lot has happened in the past several months and over the next few days, weeks, or months I will try to catch you up on what has been happening in the Thurman household.  Thanks for checking back in!  See you soon!

Can you say scam???

May 13, 2008

I am trying to sell a chair and love seat on Craigslist.  I received an e-mail from a guy yesterday saying…

Is this AD available or not? let me know as soon as possible, cuss i want to buy it.
Thanks God bless you.

With the foul smell of scam, I responded anyway saying that the “AD” was still available and for him to call me if he was still interested.  The following is from the next e-mail I received.

I got all information i needed about it, since you can assure me the goodness of it, i will be purchasing it Like i said earlier, with additional $200 of your asking price. I wish i could visit  you to take a look at it but due to my present Business engagement, i will not be able to come over there to look at it or offer you cash in person, and we have a private shipping company that will handle everything after you have your money in hand. As there are too many scams on internet as regards buying and selling with large bogus account, we need to protect our self, that is why our mode of payment will be via electronic cashier check. Echeck is simple, secured, legal, fast and it is setup to eliminate the stress of  putting check in mail for days. You can read more on how i-versa check works at and also to let you know more about its legitimacy. you must received cash from your bank before the shipping company will come to pick it up.  All what you just need to do is to get a business versacheck paper and versaink, cost of $51.97. Once you have this,  i will send the electronic check to your email for printing. You can then print and proceed to clear and cash the check at your bank. The cost of procuring the check paper and ink will be added to the bottom price. you can get business versa check paper and versa ink,  at office depot, officemax, staples or any stationary store wal-mart  shopping moll around. I will be waiting to read from you soon. get back to me as soon as you get the check paper and ink. you are not the only one i asked from, and first come first serve, buy the material  today, to make it faster.

Thanks God bless you.

What scams have you encountered?
