Frozen in Grand Central Station

Check it out:
http://www.maniacworld.com/frozen-in-grand-central-station.html
This is a prank on a "grand" scale. Over 200 people gathered at Grand Central Station in New York to pull off a 'frozen in place' act. The onlooking travelers who weren't part of the act were mystified as to what was going on.

Tequila and Salt

Tequila and Salt

1. There are at least two people in this world that you would die for.
2. At least 15 people in this world love you in some way.
3. The only reason anyone would ever hate you is
because they want to be just like you.
4. A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone,
even if they don't like you.
5. Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you before they go to sleep.
6. You mean the world to someone.
7. You are special and unique.
8. Someone that you don't even know exists loves you.
9. When you make the biggest mistake ever,
something good comes from it.
10 When you think the world has turned its back on you
take another look.
11 Always remember the compliments you received.
Forget about the rude remarks.

And always remember.... when life hands you Lemons, ask for Tequila and Salt and call me over!

(Received this in an email and wanted to pass it on.)
It's a bit early for Tequila...but the rest is a good booster anytime of day.

If...

If you hadn't read my blog...would you have been able to tell that I am tired and frustrated?
They say,"The countenance is the portrait of the mind, the eyes are its informers."
-Marcus Tullius Cicer
Maybe, you could have...I thought I was good with at least looking positive. I will try harder to display a brighter countenance...I want to be a "little ray of sunshine", too.
Maybe, I should indulge in a crying session...like Charles Dickens says, "It opens the lungs, washes the countenance, exercises the eyes, and softens down the temper; so cry away."


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Whatever...Emme B has one of the sweetest countenances...and I am just the Mimi to let you see just how sweetiepie she is. She spent the night Saturday so her Daddy and Mommy could celebrate their first year anniversary. Just a few photos here to give you an idea of how time with Emme goes. I'll let you be the judge.
Just a side note: William is 6 foot 2 inches now...at fourteen...

Emme is chatting with PapaPick up on Sunday after lunch.
Emme's Daddy is yearning to play the guitar...like his Papa...or maybe, like a rock star. :O)
Either way, Emme B is interested.
Fits and giggles for Daddy. Wake up from nap on Sunday and watching Papa strum the guitar.

Time brings roses. ---Portuguese proverb

...and so does my husband....peach are always my favorite...I'm a bit slow in getting them up on my blog since I received them on Thursday but it's never to late to share roses...
There is another Portuguese proverb: "A vida come├ža aos 40"
(Life begins at 40)...Unfortunately, at age 42 and 10 weeks into academy, physically,
I feel quite the opposite. I have been ill the past week, not the flu,
but might have well been. I feel like I look the worst I ever have...I feel like crap...
I do not not feel like my life is beginning...I feel like I am taking years off of my life.


“But he that dares not grasp the thorn should never crave the rose.”
---Anne Bronte

Cousins...

Molly and Jacob are here for the weekend. Emily came and spent the day with us, too. Pretty darn cool to hear Jacob reading Dr. Suess to his baby cousin...the three of them reading together...and then Molly finishing up the reading with The Nutcracker.



Emily enjoyed each one! It went on for almost an hour!

A Valuable Lesson about Discrimination


An Innovative teacher from 1968; what she teaches should be veiwed by every American. How is it that this occured when I was three years old and I am just now seeing it at 42 years of age? Gee whiz...

If you get a chance...watch the presentation at
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/divided/etc/view.html
It's about discrimination. It's about 45 minutes...You could watch it in segments if you don't have the time all at once. But be sure to watch each one and in order. Awesome lesson. We viewed/discussed it today in our Culture Diversity class. Created a great discussion.

After viewing I'll like to know what you think.

#1 Job is to fight crime and surpress evil, by God" --Lt. Weathers

Friday's class was about the Crimes Against Children Unit...

It's one of the units I wish to put some time into after my probation ends.





It's wrong that not all children are feed and so many go hungry.


It's wrong that not all children get to sleep comfy, snuggled in their warm beds.

It's wrong that not all children have season approperiate clothing.


It's wrong that not all children have parents that love and cherish them.

It's wrong that children all over Lexington today will physically absorb their parents anger.

It's wrong that grown ups use children to satisfy their own selfish evil desires.




It's wrong...dead wrong.
