Matisyahu - One Day!

This song is so positive that I had to share it with you. It's time we stop with the negative thinking! 

Today - My ongoing Blog Post!

I spent all morning thus far catching up on some reading that I had to get done - mainly on hubpages. Not much progress.. gosh reading takes a long time, especially when it's not my favorite romance novel. First I started off by organizing my 'bookmarked' hubs into folders based on their topics and I started reading the ones on time management, article writing and hubpages tips. I must say - I am really loving writing for hubpages.

Now it's twelve o' clock and the kitchen is a mess, the cable shows (which I had running in the background - multitasking people!) are over .. well the good ones at least .. oh and I just realized Felicity Sucks! I don't know why they still showing re-runs of that show.. I mean .. Beverly Hills 90210 from long time ago still rocks but I don't know how I use to watch Felicity long time. I would much rather Dawson's Creek or something. Okay let me not go off topic..

So where was I? Right .. the kitchen being a mess.. and I have some clothes that I could not put in the washing machine soaking that need to be washed now before they lose their color! I'm not cooking today... we ordering food tonight.. yippie! So I guess once I am finished tidying up I'll get back to my reading. I still have to read articles about blogging, weight loss, making money online and oh so much more! K back to work.. I'll let you guys know if I come across anything interesting in my reading that might be of interest to you but right now it all has to do with my task of making money online and article writing.. but I am sure weight loss tips will interest you guys - since everyone thinks they are overweight .. in my skinny friends who all need a good kick in their behind for such thinking!!!

Update 1: So while I am washing the dishes and listening to the song "Sexy Chick" by David Guetta Feat. Akon - "she's nothing like the girl you've every seen before; nothing you can compare to your neighborhood ..." So I don't know but I like this song :-) Anyways so whilst washing the dishes, I'm thinking - Heck why didn't I invent Facebook? Gosh! If only I did.. then I'd be worth US$2 billion and boy oh boy .. the things I could do with that kind of money... don't worry my friends.. I'd buy you guys a great dinner :-) even spring for Lobster! Then I moved on from my thoughts of what I'd do with that kind of money to thinking about now I understand how there are some people out there who exist mainly 'online' and by that I mean - the people they interact with are mainly strangers on the web. And that's the kind of life they lead - socializing behind a computer screen. I can see how the company online can play a major part of your life. I know I look forward to getting comments from strangers (and friends) and I like checking to see if someone has commented on my hub and what this person who I don't know things about what I've written.. Strange but now I understand. That's why when my hubby is home I try not to be constantly online.. I think it gets to him.. he likes human contact and interaction which is a great thing.. thank goodness..

Okay back to work... now I'm listening to a song that was played at the 2010 Winter Olympics - One Day by Matisyahu and it has me also thinking - when will this War ever end? How many more people have to continue to pay the price for the mistakes of a few?

Okay seriously... back to work :-)

Have a great Friday people! And thanks for stopping by!

Time for you to comment!! Adjectives - Let's play a fun learning game!

I wrote a hub on hubpages that starts off by: 

I just completed my second assignment for the Teaching English as a Second or Other Language (TESOL) course and I had this idea toying around in my head whilst I was reading the material for the unit and even whilst I was doing the assignment. So what is it that I am speaking about? Well this particular unit was an Introduction to Grammar - parts of speech! Now English is the only language that I speak fluently so I figured, I know my grammar.. but let me tell you - reading about nouns, verbs, adjectives, pronouns, adverbs, prepositions, articles and gerunds (yes I said gerunds) I was like .. what? Oh, okay - so sometimes is an adverb! Great! And well I never even knew the word gerund before but I use gerunds all the time. However, I'll leave that for another time.

Read the rest of the article and come on.. go add an Adjective! I would love to hear from you! 
Have a wonderful day

reBlog from Top Ten Tips for Nutritious Shopping in a Recession | Fooducate

I found this fascinating quote today:

2. Stop buying soft drinks! Hard to imagine, but you really are paying a lot of money for carbonated water mixed with food coloring and heaps of high fructose corn syrup. On average every man woman and child consumes over 50 GALLONS of soft drinks annually. A family of 4 switching to tap water can save over $500 a year! Go ahead, drink a glass of water and watch your piggy bank swell with pride. I this is too drastic, at least switch to 100% fruit, Top Ten Tips for Nutritious Shopping in a Recession | Fooducate, Oct 2008

You should read the whole article.

Guess we should stop buying the Coca Cola Zero we buy every week.... more than once! We love that stuff... I've always been addicted to coca cola - just moved from coke, to diet coke to now coca cola Zero!

Monday Washday  
Lord, help me wash away all my selfishness and
Vanity, so I may serve you with perfect humility
Through the week ahead.
Tuesday  Ironing Day   Dear Lord, help me iron out all the wrinkles
 Of prejudice I have collected through the years
So that I may see the beauty in others. Wednesday Mending Day   O God, help me mend my ways so I will not
 Set a bad example for others.
Thursday Cleaning Day Lord Jesus, help me to dust out all the many faults
I have been hiding in the secret corners of my heart. Friday Shopping Day O God, give me the grace to shop wisely so I may purchase eternal happiness for myself and all others
  In need of love.
Saturday Cooking Day Help me, my Savior, to brew a big kettle of brotherly
Love and serve it with clean, sweet bread of human kindness. Sunday  The Lord's Day    
O God, I have prepared my house for you. Please
Come into my heart so I may spend the day and the
Rest of my life in your presence.
