HAVE A GREAT DAY ! 87 Views 07/11/07
Don't Break The Elastic!! In April, Maya Angelou was interviewed by Oprah on her 70+ birthday. Oprah asked her what she thought of growing older. And, there on television, she said it was "exciting." Regarding body changes, she said there were many, occurring every day...like her breasts. They seem to be in a race to see which will reach her waist, first. The audience laughed so hard they cried. She is such a simple and honest woman, with so much wisdom in her words! Maya Angelou said this: "I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow." "I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights." "I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life." "I've learned that making a 'living' is not the same thing as 'making a life'." "I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance." "I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw some things back." "I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision." "I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one." "I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back." "I've learned that I still have a lot to learn." "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." Please send this to five phenomenal people today If you do, som...

Sun and healing 61 Views 05/23/07
Today was my seventh week wearing my waist brace and I thought it was going to come off today and then i could start therapy to get my wrist back in shape but the doctor says another three week because its not healed yet. As i had mention in one of the blogs i fracture my wrist when on vacation while in spain. early April. I am a little afraid I know there are people with worst life long injuries and thinking about how much worst it could have been makes me grateful for all the blessing that I have. I am a graphic artist and its my drawing hand. Its been stressful, will I have full mobility at this point. When it happened I could not move my wrist back forward or side to side and definitely cant put pressure on it with out the brace. Reading a Visionarylover blog regarding sunlight, and today the doctor telling me another three weeks and he will recheck mades me think , am I getting enough sunlight. I drink soy milk every day but do not take supplements and I do eat calcium enriched foods spread out through the months. So I wonder am I getting enough sun? I work a 900 to 530 sometime to 630 get home around 745 ,8 pm. About an hour of sun in the morning travel time and part of that is on the train. Come home when its dark so lookin forward to the longer summer days, Am I getting enough sun during the week and week end. We live work and play in buildings. go to gyms inside it just shook me at how much time I spend indoors..I?ve added a report from wed md regarding vitamin D From WebMD ?Vitamin D Vitamin D is vital for calcium absorption in bones and to improve muscle strength. Not getting enough vitamin D in childhood can slow growth or cause misshapen bones (rickets); not getting enough vitamin D throughout life increases the risk for bone thinning (osteoporosis) in later years. The recommended minimum intake for vitamin D is 200 IU per day for infants, children, and adolescents. This amount of vitamin D can be obtained from drinking 16 fl oz of vitamin D?fortified milk each day. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that all breast-feeding babies and those children who do not drink enough vitamin D?fortified milk take a vitamin D supplement daily. A person age 19 to 50 needs 200 IU of vitamin D every day. A person age 51 to 70 needs 400 IU of vitamin D every day. People age 71 and older need 600 IU of vitamin D every day. People who live in sunny climates can get enough vitamin D through 10 to 15 minutes per day of sun exposure a few days a week. Vitamin D is in foods such as egg yolks, liver, saltwater fish, and vitamin D-fortified dairy products. Vitamin D also is available in supplements, often in combination with calcium. Author Kerry V.

something that makes sense 28 Views 05/18/07
Hi everyone,hope alls well. in that many of my friends are couples and or married. I was just at a house warming for one of my oldest friends and this has me thinking that I have to have a house party or a game party. I guess it would be a relationship network party..love playing bid whist cards. ?Getting off track,, The article made so much sense .. wanted to share it with the blogs. ?Are You the Last One Single? By Rachel Greenwald Courtesy of Matchcom's Happen magazine You know the drill: It's Saturday night, and you're playing third or fifth wheel yet again. Your well-meaning married friend has just made yet another unintentionally condescending remark about how awful it is to be single. Watching your coupled-up pals canoodle, you're left wondering, "Am I unlovable? Why them and not me?" It's rough when all your friends have dates or mates or spouses, and you're the only one left single. If you're singing those "One is the loneliest number" blues, take comfort that your attitude -- and situation -- can change with four quick steps: Step 1: Stay optimistic. From coaching thousands of single people, I can tell you that your biggest challenge now is not to lose hope. When everyone around you is paired off, it's normal to feel like it will never happen to you -- but that attitude becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Take a break from dating for a few weeks, do something that (or visit someone who) makes you feel good about yourself, make a list of 10 reasons why you like yourself, then list 10 reasons why you're a great catch, then jump back into the singles scene with your new attitude. Step 2: Get new buddies. Of course you'd never dump your old friends, but it's time to branch out and find some new single buddies to keep you circulating. Notice that I use the word "buddies" rather than "friends." Buddies are single pals with whom you can have a drink or attend an event or party; the folks you call on a Friday afternoon to ask, "What?s going on this weekend?" They don't have to be your intimate confidante or love the same books as you do. They just need to be fun, single, and active people who can help you meet new people and commiserate about the ups and down of being single. To find these new buddies, ask everyone you know -- your colleagues, your neighbors, your real-estate agent, your married friends -- to introduce you to their same-gender single friends. (Same-gender buddies are best, so there's no confusion about whether you're on a romantic date.) It's ironic, but the search for a buddy is similar to the search for a mate: It's about networking, joining new groups, and striking up conversations with someone who catches your eye. Most importantly, be very proactive. Set a goal to meet one new single buddy per week, and really work towards achieving it. Step 3: Have a party. Nothing helps you network and meet new people better than throwing your own party. The key: When you invite people, be sure to say "Bring your friends!" If your home isn't big enough, co-host with a friend who lives in a bigger space or have the party in an event room at a restaurant, gallery or even an ice-skating rink. The primary goal of the party is to meet single buddies who will increase your network, accompany you to events or restaurants, and provide an alternative to being third wheel with your coupled-up friends. (In a 2004 "exit poll" among my no-longer-single clients, a whopping 72 percent reported they met a new single buddy at a party they hosted, someone who was later instrumental in their meeting their future mate.) The secondary party goal is about enriching your life: bringing together interesting people, preparing and enjoying great food, and reminding yourself that being single doesn't mean being lonely. Step 4: Leverage those couples! Happy couples usually adore playing matchmaker for their single friends. They want everyone else to join the club. And that's good news for you! In fact, when all your friends are coupled-up, your network automatically doubles: You now have your friend's new mates in your circle, and they each might have a few fix-ups for you. But remember, you have to ask them directly for fix-ups (they're not mind-readers). You will not sound desperate, I promise. I just coached a woman last week who reported that she was eating Chinese take-out with her friend and her friend's live-in boyfriend and boldly said to them, "Hey, not that this isn?t fun hanging out with you two lovebirds, but who can you fix me up with?? Within a week, she was introduced to Mr. I-Think-He's-the-One. It can work for you, too! Rachel Greenwald is the author of the New York Times best-selling book "Find a Husband After 35 Using What I Learned at Harvard Business School." She is also a dating coach and matchmaker. She is a frequent guest on The Today Show and has been featured in dozens of magazines from Oprah to People.? Does this article speak to you? Have you felt this way.. I have not brought her book , but I will.

On the plane to Spain tomorrow with friends. Looking forward to this trip. Its been a lot going on at work and home so this down time is just the thing right now. Wanted to know did any one hear about a 6 month rule? Its regarding your passports. When I start tell my friends where I was going during this passover, Easter spring break time. A number of them mention the 6 month rule, at first I was going to let it slide because my passport expires on the 8-27-2007. Then I mentioned it to one of my train buddies and she explained that once she lost her money and her trip because the airport personal would not let her board the plane when her trip was inside of 6 month expiration date on her passport when traveling outside of US territories. I called the Spanish and UK consulate and they confirmed this. I wonder why this is the first time I have heard of this. Is it the changing of the times?

Please see article below.This applies to wet foods only. So feed your friends dry food for now! -D Pet food recalled as deaths reported By Associated Press | March 18, 2007 WASHINGTON -- A major manufacturer of pet foods sold throughout North America under dozens of store names is recalling millions of containers of its products while working to determine what caused kidney failure and some deaths of cats and dogs. Article Tools Printer friendly E-mail to a friend Menu Foods, the Ontario-based company that produced the pet food, said yesterday that it is recalling dog food sold under 48 brands and cat food sold under 40 brands including Iams, Nutro, and Eukanuba. The food was distributed throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico by major retailers such as Wal-Mart, Kroger, and Safeway. A complete list of the recalled products along with product codes, descriptions, and production dates is available from the Menu Foods "At this juncture, we're not 100 percent sure what's happened," said Paul Henderson, the company's president and chief executive officer. However, the recalled products were made using wheat gluten purchased from a new supplier, since dropped for another source, spokeswoman Sarah Tuite said. Wheat gluten is a source of protein. An unknown number of cats and dogs suffered kidney failure and about 10 died after eating the affected pet food, Menu Foods said in announcing the North American recall. Product testing has not revealed a link explaining the reported cases of illness and death, the company said. The recall covers the company's "cuts and gravy" style food, which consists of chunks of meat in gravy, sold in cans and small foil pouches between Dec. 3 and March 6. The pet food was sold by stores operated by the Kroger Co., Safeway Inc., Wal-Mart Stores Inc., and PetSmart Inc., among others, Henderson said. The company said it makes pet food for 17 of the top 20 North American retailers. It is also a contract manufacturer for the top branded pet food companies, including Procter & Gamble Co. Many stores that sold the affected brands frantically pulled packages off shelves yesterday. At a Petsmart store in Union, N.J., Silviene Grzybowski became worried when the four types of Iams products she buys for her cat, Smokey, had vanished from shelves. The cat was very sick and had not been eating for days, she said. "The vet told us to buy her her favorite food, but I'm going to call the vet right now," Grzybowski said, looking at an announcement Petsmart had taped to shelves announcing the recall.

Whats on my mind today. 168 Views 03/05/07
Hi everyone , I have been thinking about quotes... I?m creating my quote blog! You all are welcome to add to this quotes blog. i felt they have a flavor of the blogs Fear less, hope more; Whine less, breathe more; Talk less, say more; Hate less, love more; And all good things are yours. --Anonymous I imagine that one of the reasons that people cling to their hates so stubbornly is because they sense, once hate is gone, that they will be forced to deal with the pain. --James Baldwin, 1955 "Take your life in your own hands, and what happens? A terrible thing: no one to blame." --Erica Jong ?We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.? --Joseph Campbell All the flowers of all the tomorrows are in the seeds of today. - Indian Proverb A flower's fragrance declares to all the world that it is fertile, available, and desirable, its sex organs oozing with nectar. Its smell reminds us in vestigial ways of fertility, vigor, life-force, all the optimism, expectancy, and passionate bloom of youth. We inhale its ardent aroma and, no matter what our ages, we feel young and nubile in a world aflame with desire. - Diane Ackerman, A Natural History of the Senses, 1990, p. 13

Being Hateful 155 Views 02/22/07
Hi all from blogland. Today was and a usual day, went to work and had a very productive day, but in the course of my day I encounter many people and I am respectful to all, with a smile, a hello or just a nodding of the head. Things seam to be going OK, so I get home and call my sister we have a chat and my sister tells me , today at her job one of the men she works with tells her "you talk to everyone so who are you loyal too?" What is the world coming to when a person who has a happy disposition gets questioned about their loyalty because they are friendly. Why does misery love company, why can't misery stay to itself. Why take out all your aggravation out on the would. Learn to deal with each problem in a approbate way. Each of us should be true to ourselves, we should be loyal to our belief's, be consistent in positive actions. Everyone have a pleasant evening and wake with a positive attitude. Has something of this nature ever happened to you?

Director: Nick Cassavetes, base on true events, this movie was socking,harmful,hurtful and stupid, but a must see for any one who has concern in their heart for children. I saw this move with my niece and afterward. On the way to Starbucks we discussed the film..since my niece is seventeen I wanted to get her take on the young brother, his choices and decisions. When do you say enough is enough and stand behind your word. who has seen this and what did you think of it.

It makes sense to me 29 Views 02/01/07
When I read a statement that make sense to me. I like to share, a piece from my niece.Yes, again. "The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way... we cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is plan on the one thing we have, and that is our superior attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. A superior attitude will produce superior results." Author: C.K.P

Whats the right thing to do,make a leap of faith, or logic. Could it be a combination of the two. Life is about taking chances we may get hurt and we may not.. Live , learn and smile as much as you can. Tomorrow is not promised.. Bless you all. Below is a a cute story, don't know who the auther is but sent to me from friends.. darlene Young King Arthur was ambushed and imprisoned by the monarch of a neighboring kingdom. The monarch could have killed him but was moved by Arthur's youth and ideals. So, the monarch offered him his freedom, as long as he could answer a very difficult question. Arthur would have a year to figure out the answer and, if after a year, he still had no answer, he would be put to death. The question? What do women really want? Such a question would perplex even the most knowledgeable man, and to young Arthur, it seemed an impossible query. But, since it was better than death, he accepted the monarch's proposition to have an answer by year's end. He returned to his kingdom and began to poll everyone: the princess, the priests, the wise men and even the court jester. He spoke with every one, but no one could give him a satisfactory answer. Many people advised him to consult the old witch, for only she would have the answer. But the price would be high; as the witch was famous throughout the kingdom for the exorbitant prices she charged. The last day of the year arrived and Arthur had no choice but to talk to the witch. She agreed to answer the question, but he would have to agree to her price first. The old witch wanted to marry Sir Lancelot, the most noble of the Knights of the Round Table and Arthur's closest friend! Young Arthur was horrified. She was hunchbacked and hideous, had only one tooth, smelled like sewage, made obscene bodily noises, etc He had never encountered such a repugnant creature in all his life. He refused to force his friend to marry her and endure such a terrible burden; but Lancelot, learning of the proposal, spoke with Arthur. He said nothing was too big of a sacrifice compared to Arthur's life and the preservation of the Round Table. Hence, a wedding was proclaimed and the witch answered Arthur's question thus: What a woman really wants, she answered...is to be in charge of her own life Everyone in the kingdom instantly knew that the witch had uttered a great truth and that Arthur's life would be spared. And so it was, the neighboring monarch granted Arthur his freedom and Lancelot and the witch had a wonderful wedding. The honeymoon hour approached and Lancelot, steeling himself for a horrific experience, entered the bedroom. But, what a sight awaited him. The most beautiful woman he had ever seen lay before him on the bed. The astounded Lancelot asked what had happened The beauty replied that since he had been so kind to her when she appeared as a witch, she would henceforth, be her horrible deformed self only half the time and the beautiful maiden the other half. Which would he prefer? Beautiful during the day....o r night? Lancelot pondered the predicament. During the day, a beautiful woman to show off to his friends, but at night, in the privacy of his castle, an old witch? Or, would he prefer having a hideous witch during the day, but by night, a beautiful woman for him to enjoy wondrous intimate moments? What would YOU do? What Lancelot chose is below. BUT....make YOUR choice before you scroll down below. OKAY? Noble Lancelot said that he would allow HER to make the choice herself. Upon hearing this, she announced that she would be beautiful all the time because he had respected her enough to let her be in charge of her own life. Now....what is the moral to this story? The moral is..... If you don't let a woman have her own way.... Things are going to get ugly ...or NOT!( "this was me" )

children - this is a good 46 Views 01/25/07
A little web humor from my friend to me. Sowhated to share with my blog friend.. Hope it bring a smile . ------ Forwarded Message To those of us who have children in our lives, whether they are our own, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, or students... here is something to make you chuckle. Whenever your children are out of control, you can take comfort from the thought that even God 's omnipotence did not extend to His own children. After creating heaven and earth, God created Adam and Eve. And the first thing he said was "DON'T !"  "Don't what? " Adam replied. "Don't eat the forbidden fruit." God said. "Forbidden fruit? We have forbidden fruit? Hey Eve..we have forbidden fruit! "  "No Way! " "Yes way! " "Do NOT eat the fruit ! " said God.  "Why ?" "Because I am your Father and I said so! " God replied, wondering why He hadn't stopped creation after making the elephants. A few minutes later, God saw His children having an apple break and He was ticked! "Didn't I tell you not to eat the fruit? " God asked.  "Uh huh," Adam replied. "Then why did you? " said the Father. "I don't know," said Eve. "She started it! " Adam said. "Did not! " "Did too! " "DID NOT! " Having had it with the two of them, God's punishment was that Adam and Eve should have children of their own. Thus the pattern was set and it has never changed.  BUT THERE IS REASSURANCE IN THE STORY! If you have persistently and lovingly tried to give children wisdom and they haven't taken it, don't be hard on yourself. If God had trouble raising children, what makes you think it would be a piece of cake for you? THINGS TO THINK ABOUT! 1. You spend the first two years of their life teaching them to walk and talk. Then you spend the next sixteen telling them to sit down and shut up. 2. Grandchildren are God's reward for not killing your own children. 3. Mothers of teens now know why some animals eat their young. 4. Children seldom misquote you. In fact, they usually repeat word for word what you shouldn't have said. 5. The main purpose of holding children's parties is to remind yourself that there are children more awful than your own ... 6. We childproofed our homes, but they are still getting in. ADVICE FOR THE DAY: Be nice to your kids. They will choose your nursing home one day. AND FINALLY: IF YOU HAVE A LOT OF TENSION AND YOU GET A HEADACHE, DO WHAT IT SAYS ON THE ASPIRIN BOTTLE: "TAKE TWO ASPIRIN" AND "KEEP AWAY FROM CHILDREN"!!!!! Darlene

Pans labyrinth" movie goers" 32 Views 01/20/07
I found this move very disturbing, definitely not for young children, DIRECTED BY Guillermo Del Toro. sub titled in English, over view: To escape from postwar repression during the fascist regime in Spain in 1944, Ofelia, a lonely kid living with her mom and adoptive father, creates a dream world filled with fantastic creatures. Artistically it beautifully rendered fairy creatures. Who has seen it and what did you think of the movie.

got love test 38 Views 01/20/07
I am going to send you personality test: it very true to me. And if nothing else, I could be a good friend. huges xx & kisses to all. How You Approach Life You, Movie Star, are caring and optimistic, and you know how to do the right thing as you glide through life. You have an uncanny ability to read people, and the situations around you. That makes it all the easier for you to observe your environment, and make promises that you will be able to keep. Keeping peoples' trust is paramount for someone like you. It's the foundation for getting a leg up on social circles, work circles and even family circles. You know that others can count on you, which adds to the confidence you have in yourself. You know you won't let people down unnecessarily. You are sure of yourself, and you project an unusually positive self-image to others, which will lead to your successes in life. Your idea of success is a bit more tangible than some people's. For you, success is something you can see ? whether embedded in someone's personality, or as reflected by their image. For that reason, there are times you might feel compelled to use material possessions as just one way of explaining to people who you are. To some degree, your taste, your ideals and your opinions can be understood in what you choose to surround yourself and your home with. Though amassing nice things might be important to you, so is succeeding in a socially conscious way. You're a bright ray of sunshine in a sometimes doubtful world. You're friendly, charming, and great with people. You have a high level of tolerance which adds to your ability to handle stressful situations and your overall worldly-wisdom. You rarely shy away from asserting your ideas and opinions, and you encourage others to do the same. So what are you waiting for Movie Star? Get out there and take the world by storm! Here's the breakdown of your scores on the four personality dimension scales. Relaxed Apprehensive Self-Doubt Confidence Safety-Seeking Risk-Taking Internal Experience External Appearance Relaxed versus Apprehensive Relaxed-----me----------------- Apprehensive Your scores place you in the mid-range of the relaxed/apprehensive scale. This means that relative to others who have taken the test, you're more relaxed than some and less relaxed than others. To give you an idea of how to gauge yourself on this scale, let's look at people who scored towards the extreme ends of the scale. People who score high on the apprehensive side of this scale are likely to be drawn to situations that are less stimulating to their senses. Because they are easily affected by change, they try to stay away from environments that can over-stimulate them. These people have strong reactions to what others would consider minor changes. That is why people who score high on the apprehensive side of the scale try to slow down the pace. When faced with chaotic situations, they will look for more calming places to be. Despite their talents, they are generally more self-critical and shy than others, even if it seems there's no reason for them to be. People who score high on the relaxed side of this scale are likely to be stimulated by chaos. They approach life with a "the more the better" kind of attitude. They tend to have high energy levels because they are relaxed about problems that are out of their control. These people are relatively less inclined to react emotionally to things that happen ? not because they don't feel the emotions, but because they don't let things get to them as easily as others. Self-Doubt versus Confidence Self-Doubt-----------me------- Confidence Your scores place you in the moderately confident region of the self-doubt/confidence scale. This means that relative to others who have taken the test, you are more confident than most. It also indicates that you are generally more satisfied with yourself than are others. Even when your confidence slips, you're still more dependable than many. Since you scored just slightly more on the confident side of things, let's take a look at characteristics of people who scored more towards the extremes of the scale to gauge where you fall in between. People scoring high on the confidence side are extremely self-assured and responsible. Because of these traits, they are often the one friends and colleagues come to rely on ? both on the job and in personal situations. These people are also known for having unusually high self-esteem and are natural leaders. People who score high on the self-doubt side of the scale have a tendency to look to others to determine their self-worth. They seek calm environments and often focus their energies on jobs that have less responsibility and are therefore less stressful. They are sometimes prone to being overly-critical about themselves, but can work their way out of those thoughts because ultimately, others might point out their talents. Any way there more but let me leave it here.. Now if i listened to my horiscope. It held no hope that I will have a close relationship.so go figure!>? I beleive we make our life what it is, no one else..

I look around at all the negative bogs and know that all things do pass, but in life there will always be people who do not like you, who do not celebrate their life and others uniqueness . Come on people this is an internet dating site. Its one thing to get upset over slurs when you know the person. You have touched, looked them in the eye and had conversation in person , It can be like getting stabbed in the back or your favorite dog turning on you. Quit another when you know nothing about the other people except in how they conduct themselves with their written words. Let it go, let it slide, say your piece and let it be over. I could never understand why so many are bent out of shape because of the tolls on this site. please don't explain. it would turn into a he-said/ she-said circus. I just move on to the next topic. I have not use the abuse option this site has opted to give us. Because every one has a right to speak their thoughts , impression, dream and hopes. Everyone may not have integrity,I know I do have integrity. Why would any one of us on this site just pick this person or that person to start and point the finger at.. toll toll. It sound just like the witch hunts back in the days of uneducated easily lead non thinking can't make decision on their own individuals. I have had many people not like me. yes I have, I have had arguments too. But I chose to let these things go. I have learned what I needed to learn about the arguer and about me and I how I reacted from being attached. So does it make you a stronger or does it weaken you? By focusing so much of your attention on people who are trying to discredit your existence, it all depends on the individuals. Who should be the judge of that? Do you know who you are today . Are you honest. Do you have forgiveness. Is integrity part of your life. you have respect for yourselves A good work ethics Just ethic as part of your life. Are you reliable; dependable; responsible Are you favorable; propitious Are competent or skillful Follow the ideal of goodness or morality Strive for excellence I know my own self worth so what I chose to give of my time and attention to someone be them real ,scammer or toll good or bad.I am mature enough to recognize and deal with any real, scammer or toll on my terms. One on one. Whats my point , just my opinion.

I have a kinesiologist I go to and went to when I tore my inner ligament in my knee from not stretched correctly before and after a strenuous workout. . My kinesiologist helped so to day I am pain free. He has very unique perspective. Let me share this which he calls a prescription for peace. One of his emotional vitamins: Balance helping others and letting other help you. An imbalance either way leads to conflict. Dr. Eugene Charles
