” Lead By Example”

August 26, 2016

Frankly, this is a decent hour for this scenario. Normally it is done in the wee hours of the morning although it doesn’t matter what time it is or maybe it does; the point is that it is done when it is fresh in the mind of the blogger. In a general sense small minds are concerned with gossip. Average minds are concerned with events. Great minds focuses on ideas. People can have a combination of all of these at certain times and mainly not just a single one.
You lead by example mainly with observation, listening rather than talking. Sometimes environment comes into play also as it is somewhat more comfortable to have a comfort zone as it makes it easier. An excellent way to lead by example is to greet everyone that you come in contact by a smile a brief greeting or some acknowledgement of awareness. This is good regardless of their attire, their looks or facial expressions. There is a contagious concern for them as another human being. Then if you do this repeatedly it will become second nature. This is good also in the race, religious angle. You may learn so much from others who are different from yourself it would become remarkable. Then of course others will follow your lead. All of us have the propensity to feel more as ease with others who are the same as themselves. Yet it is a restricting bias angle to be that way. You are missing out big time, by just narrowing thoughts as opposed to broadening your horizons.
In a personal sense, been keeping calm doing positive, progressive things. For months my mobile phone as been showing that the messages been full and then beeping at odd hours. Holy Crapola! So took it to Cricket and they couldn’t figure it out. So I noticed that on the outbox messages that saying that it was empty then clicking it anyway. Notice there were 495 messages in the outbox. Then it took me a long time to delete them. So now not a sound.
Went to the Pita Palace recently with my roommate. Had Falafel with Harissa sauce along with Hummus. Had some Baba Ganoush ( roasted eggplant) Sensationally Tremendous. Oh Harissa sauce is made with cucumber, onion and tomato! Its no wonder that it is wonderfully tasting!!!
Everything at the Pita Palace was fantastic!!! The guy who was at the counter taking orders and preparing was hilarious. He was from Boston. I had a Yankee hat. And he commented. I said ” I love New York and he came back with, ” thats makes one of us”
Then he said ” Do you know what we do with those Yankee hats”? We throw them on the road, set fire to them, then run over them!!! I thought to myself How amusing is that!!!! Ok there is a red line going under a good many words as I continue this, now wondering why? All the words are spelled correctly. So this this rather getting annoying!!!!

” Creatures Of Habit”

August 14, 2016

All my books read, just a final readers digest read which is a remarkable idea. Have a list of items to accomplish for the month of August which is on the agenda. Am actually methodical about everything; more organized that way. Trying my utmost to remain calm too.
Its hard to tell the right from the wrong when the right is protecting the wrong! Say what you want! You will die if they listen! These profound lines are from an alternative song! All alternative music is awesome. So awe inspiring and with timeless lyrics which people should appreciate and take a special note. It is ridiculous for anyone to make comments of importance on any social media. Everyone has opinions and that is like having a–es of all shapes and sizes. People act like it is breaking news. Liars everywhere! Statements are misinterpreted and misconstrued to a point of being laughable.
Here is Georgia the governor is going to appoint a person who is a transgender. That is a poor choice for the simple reason there are enough problems now why would you want to make more. Holy Moly! Now there is a law in S.C. to feed the homeless; it is in parts of Fla. and in N.Y.C. too. This is horrendous. Most people are just a paycheck from being homeless or having to choose whether to purchase food or medicine.
Just read that a young man committed suicide because of bullying. To make matter worse he wrote a note to inform the school of his intentions and nothing was done to make it worse still it was Holy Angels Catholic School. He was just 13 years of age. This shouldn’t have happened. The authorities were informed beforehand yet not a person thought to pay attention to it. It is in correlation with the child abuse brought against priests the cover ups in the higher ranks: it happens in the military in the high commands no a person is exempt including generals. The child abuse which was a reality in the book Angela’s Ashes. That same abuse is here today which is a sad fact in schools, in the home environment.
Again in Georgia the soil is red resembles clay. In the front yard there was water coming out of the ground and it was spreading. Observed this month so it was a tree root. Thought first it was a broken pipe. The plumbers had to dig and then found it deep inside the ground. Its been temporarily handled now however there was a recall to a fixture. There is a pine tree that has definite marks of decay and hopefully it will be saved. This is in recollection of a time when married living in a cul de sac and raw sewage was in the bathtub every so often. Had to use some chemical to rid it. This was due to a tree root. Usually this happens in sub divisions or in cul de sacs, or places with many trees or certain types of species. Now as I was reading this the print is larger and want it to be of normal size. Still have to finish it by tagging it. Holy Capolli!! Oh and yes my son received his package!!!

” One Step Closer”

August 7, 2016

Well back again my forever stomping ground ready and willing to express my heart to the fullest. Started and finished another and my last book ” Society’s Child by Janis Ian. A fascinating in depth honest straightforward and in some ways shockingly sad. Her view of the way she was treated in the music industry as a mere non person who had not a feeling to be in the trash pile if not produced by the people around her. Sadly again it was all about the almighty dollar. However it is a self taught survivor who came through with scars to say the least yet still was important for self worth in the end. Highly recommended.
Sent a package to my son. Tract it and said it was delivered and he never received it. Went to the post office to talk to the manager after repeatedly phoning with no answer. She says they always answer their phone. This was a wait of nearly forty minutes to just wait in line and talk to her. What inundated pressure on my part, and the unmitigated nerve on her part. Had thrown the slip away after tracking it so she said without a tracking number it wasn’t useful. Holy Crapola
So I thought if someone broke the law the post office has video cameras or ways of having things traced. Yet she was very unhelpful. Again I’m the type not to argue unless I can find a reason and have a solution. I am a meticulous person also always organized. My son’s phone was off so we had to resort to email. His phone should be tuned on today so surely there will be an update. Reason that I am so wanting this is he had some shoes and a favorite movie and some personal items as well. Second of all there will be a box of my things that will be sent this month so it is a lesson to keep the tracking numbers only until the person gets the item. Regardless if the item says its been delivered.
Shannon phoned after my emailing her and said I have an appointment on December 2nd which is a Thursday at 3 pm with Doctor Plonic. This is the doctor I originally wanted in the first place. So that is set in place which is important.
Now that I have finished reading which keeps me calm have to get some other things such as maybe puzzles or maybe some crossword puzzles to do. Got some yard work that’s been occupying my time. Love the outdoors. I will surely find something to my liking.

” Copacetic”

August 1, 2016

A world of thoughts whirling around in my brain that keeps me on key with things around me. Finished a beautifully written book previously mentioned that was educational by Alexandra La Pierre and co authored by Christal Mouchard. Now believe it or not am nearly finished with another book” An Unpredictable Life” by Rosie Perez. What an honest, straight forward courageous epic of mind mesmerizing experiences that this fine lady went through in her life. At times it is very emotionally heartbreaking yet true with no holes barred. Her unique style of authentic writing is skillfully insightful. It is humorous in a wonderful New York style which makes it more wonderful than it already is.
Speaking of books am sending my bestest friend in this world a book ” The Love Of Butterflies by Margaret Fountaine. These butterflies are European and the years is in the 1800’s with beautiful photos throughout. Surely hope he really loves this gift as it is one of his birthday gifts as he can’t get too many of those because he is a true gentleman that deserves these.
An innovative idea and to some people might think a bit with controversy: children should go to school the year round. Now this will far out reach the benefits, as it will solve the hunger problem which plagues the U.S. particularly. Most children who are in the lower level of the economy can’t afford the lunch program, and for that matter barely gets enough to eat daily. So how can a child concentrate on their studies if they are constantly hungry. There wouldn’t be any more latchkey kids, or having the TV as a babysitter, or any other devices. The gangs of kids wouldn’t be left idle with nothing to do, getting themselves in trouble or worse. Of course there would be a time off for a break to spend time with their friends or their families. The states would save money if this occurred in many ways imaginable.
Have done something just for myself, got my haircut. Look adorable. And for a while am wearing four pairs of earrings in both ears. Have had many compliments. Then went to Lens Crafters to purchase another pair of glasses. Just to make a long story short. The person in charge put some lenses in these frames which I already had and besides these lenses were a backup pair I had from before that Santos had given me just in case. I had kept them for nearly 4 years and now they have finally come into practice. Oh the adventure didn’t cost me anything. Yay. An afterthought speaking of Rosie Perez’s book which was on the emotional side, I couldn’t sleep one night and went to the closet and grabbed one of many of my stuffed animals which was a teddy bear that my bestest friend had given me, and held it close for maybe 45 minutes then placed it back in the closet.

” Many More Sides Of A Coin”

July 19, 2016

Just finished a well written highly recommended book A Life Damon Runyon by Jimmy Breslin. He is indeed the best writer ever. I’ve now read everyone of his books and thoroughly enjoyed each one. I just raced through it from beginning to end. Now I’ve started Women Travelers 1850-1950. Fascinating. My love of reading is a beautiful ongoing pastime.
There are certainly many more sides of a coin. Depending on the circumstances, the single situation, the subject, although it may change the outlook is the same. In my childhood there were lots of nevers. Far too many. However I was able to overcome this however it did naturally affect my way I treat others. It had too there wasn’t anyway around this. For instance I was excluded, so I turn it around especially in conversations I include when making a statement or even asking a question. I just naturally do that without thinking. One aspect of my childhood was that I never had a birthday party, or simply a cake. So naturally I again turn it around and remember each birthday and recognize it by saying a greeting. Again I just naturally do that. About two months ago I naturally recognized my late husband’s brothers birthday and said actually something very sincere and appropriate about that day. I was immediately slammed by an insulting response from a person who will remain nameless. Actually hadn’t said even a word to her. She is a daughter of my niece who is very loving and caring. Naturally didn’t want to say anything in response because I was flabbergasted as the gall of this young daughter. She has noet one redeeming quality. Thought to myself it is a defamation of my character. Then I thought let it go. Not worth a response. It surely didn’t want to response to the mother as of her daughter’s behavior. Surely didn’t want in anyway to hurt the mother’s feelings. So therefore I just let it stand as mute. I seem to overcompensate when it comes to feelings of others, which is a good way to approach this. The inbetween is mine.

” Going Against The Grain”

July 10, 2016

Surprisingly there is again on the social media site which deals with thoughts which is entitled Notes. Well low and behold I found it there once again after quite a time away. So I thought this would be an excellent time to elaborate on this just a bit. Being high strung or hyper sensitive which is part of who I am, I was saying this to one of my friends as part of a broader conversation which entailed bio medicine and she mentioned that people who have red or in my case auburn hair have a tendency to be that way. Wondered why I was restless sometimes and that is part of it. So to counterbalance this have to find ways that I would be able to relax and so do something positive and something I find enjoyable.
I had just finished Soulswimmer by Alfie McCourt a couple of weeks ago, and he died suddenly. Was saddened thought how young he was just a year older than myself. This is unexplainable to me. Now I am reading a book by Jimmy Breslin called A Life Damon Runyon. I am enthralled with it. Am in the middle of it and it is just mesmerizing just a great and detailed writer actually my favorite.
After much soul searching came to the decision to move to Rochester, N.Y. simply one reason is my son Andre is there and he simply really likes the place tremendously. Not finding an ophthalmologist here in Georgia found an excellent doctor in Rochester. Simply I am the only person and it is only up to me to find the very best there is concerning my eyes. It is of utter importance to find someone who has excellent credentials and a patient doctor relationship which is a factor of value. Found the doctor online and made an appointment on December 2nd. Today I got the papers from the office and will post the medical records to the office the next time I go to the post office which is soon. I am calmer now that I am moving too.
Really gave this place a real honest chance and it isn’t working out for me on many factors. Have told my roommate and actually explained fully and she understands. Told her that I didn’t want to leave her high and dry and that’s a Radiohead song and she will have enough time to get another roommate. So in that respect things are somewhat calmer now which I was very diplomatic in the equation. And fair also. She is a friend so have to treat her as that.

” A Mismash” Part Two

June 16, 2016

When things are stressful it is good to at least to hum or better yet sing a favourite song that you know precisely. In my case I’ve been humming a Santo and Johnny song call ” Ebbtide” It is soothing and has a calming effect and actually does the trick, and works. Floating on a barge as I am playing a game works too.
Been patiently waiting for a book from Amazon which is taking their sweet time. Irritating to say the least though cela vie! Must say there are a lot of red underling words with this blog. Then I am waiting for a doctor bill to come in the mail. So who does that? Guess who. You are correct, me! Need to get my haircut again, just want it to look better, then getting my glasses which had been scratched from a while ago in Wisconsin, then posting my dearest sweetest friend in this entire world whose birthday is the 21st of this month a surprise present.
Some people don’t have the compunction or the scruples to know the difference of when the person says something that is derogatory, they actually just blurt it out and yes without a thought of what they are saying. Why they actually don’t have the power to even think so that is very sad. The best diplomatic thing to do it just ignore the source of annoyance. It is difficult yet that is the only thing to do. Just act that they don’t even exist and just remember karma what goes around, comes around.

” Floating On A Barge”

June 11, 2016

Would you believe that it just all at once disappeared all 300 plus words so say oh well start over which is my way as I have all the practice at this. Today is my best first cousin’s birthday. Happy Birthday dearest Mike on your 75th year. Know that your family will celebrate this with you! Just think you are only a year older than myself. How wonderfully amazing is this. Speaking of birthdays still celebrating mine from last month. I am getting presents from Amazon. Just today had to return a laserdisc a favorite movie simply because I didn’t have a laserdisc player and wasn’t intending to have that ever. This is advanced technology for those who are interested. Speaking of that, my mobile phone has issues. Unfortunately had to delete the once said messages from only 5 months in order for those who are sending a message. That isn’t correct saying that only 5 months is “old”, though did this now it is saying to delete messages still so guess what already have done this. It still is happening and if I say anything to the carrier they will say upgrade because they are in the selling game. It is unlikely they will fix it on the spot.
One of my best friends in this world had Conjunctivitis for a short time. I had a similar ailment while in Wisconsin after taking some sinus medicine which was a mistake. Still had to use eye drops for a short time. It too was very painfully anything that had to do with the nerves especially the eyes. It cleared up within a matter of weeks. Gladly Alynn’s condition cleared up and doesn’t return. Mine hasn’t returned either.
There is a smog alert here, and it is most uncomfortable in the mid 90s and it will continue a long time and its not the start of summer yet which begins on the 21st. So welcome or unwelcome to the South. Keeping hydrated too which is most important anytime regardless.
Again keeping positive despite all the negativity and there is a lot of that. Name it, its there. Just keeping in mind there is a time limit to this place: for every action, there is a reaction.

” The Plot Thickens” Part One

June 3, 2016

This is truly a myxmatosis! How to commense is the question, from the end, to the middle, or start. Well as it flows it goes is my best guess scenario. The very used dresser that I am using, yet should be grateful I have one. The drawers stick incessantly and gets stuck in one place since it was given to me. So the first drawer was sticking and not moving at all. So I have my clothes in all four drawers. The top drawer has my underwear in it which is quite a lot. I am opening it and it only goes not even a quarter of the way. Now picture this. So I leave it that way for a more than a month and it is getting to me. Trying to ignore it one night and thinking I will solve this once and for all. Then in the morning I take all the clothes out of the dresser and try to solve this, again without success so I try another way. I put the clothes back into the dresser drawers. Then I stack the three drawers with clothes in them on top of one another. Then I turn the dresser on the floor face down forward, and start to pull with all my might to pull the drawer out. With a series of words which are unprintable, the drawer comes loose and it is out finally. Then I angle it so it will go back in, noticing that there was a plastic piece inhibiting the opening. So that is solved. Now before all of this occurred. I had some items of the dresser. One of them was my present from Ian at Christmas time which was carefully wrapped in paper and put in a box. Then sent to me from Jordan. He had gotten this when he was in the Holy Land. It is blue and white dish which says Bethlehem and other well known places on it. When it was originally sent to me it was broken in shipment so I kept it and had some Elmer glue and secured it. So getting back to this: I pulled the dresser drawer with such force and rightfully so that the dish fell to the floor and broke not shattered in five pieces. Then I picked it all up and was going to keep it regardless. So I spent two weeks trying to glue in back in place. Then after that was thinking about it at night and decided to put it in a small plastic see through bag. Then put all the five pieces into a jewelry cloth bag that I have given to me by my sister, Vivian a very lengthy time ago. So talk about frustrations. Many of them here.
Since I moved into this house noticed that there were wires showing on the wall that were bare. It is suppose to be a fire alarm with a battery in it. But no not here. So I mentioned this to the roommate which she rents the house and she said ” In a two weeks this will be done” So I figured how come it wasn’t done before that and how long hasn’t it been done.” Hearing on the local news here there are many fires. So that prompted me to question this.

” Nothing And Everything”

May 24, 2016

Here I am back on my stomping ground which is feeling like home doing something I truly enjoy, expressing my inner and ultimate thoughts to those who would like to take a quick gander to this.
Keeping things in focus which is truly difficult with such distractions in the way however that is the way it is: just dealing with it and coming out successfully. First of all am on Windows 10 which is somewhat different yet a change which is good. It kept all my sites and just checking where it is because it has changed a bit for instance the passwords are different in the fact that for google and this great wonderful expression of thought website had to reinvent a password and that is fine for the reason all the hacking out there and speaking of that I was hacked on this social media website and still can’t log on so I say” So What, No Big Deal”. I often view things from news sites which I want to share on this social media site and find I can’t so I secretly say to myself people are out there are missing something fantastic. Went to the eye doctor now have to go to another eye doctor which is good. Wasn’t impressed in the least with this doctor. Miss Doctor Michael B Shapiro. He is the best. Still not interested in making a lot of friends here. Just have a few friends here and that is sufficient for me. Have a group of true friends all over the place so that’s what is important. Speaking of that, my birthday was terrific am extending it through the month of May which I feel good about that. Am still getting items from Amazon which having to use my old email and password in order to obtain items which is wonderful getting around the process.
I have wifi so I can be streaming anything. I go on youtube and pick of cuny the news program and watch Jimmy Breslin’s interviews. Then there is Pete Hamill which there are interviews with him by a variety of persons. He has written a movie script which is marvelous and I finally viewed the clips to it. And Hamill speaks also. It is with Steve S. who is an author and an actor. It is called” A Poet Long Ago”. There is a website which shows the advertisement of the movie. It is apoetlongago.com. Check it out. Now there is a red line under what I scripting. Usually it happens when there is a misspelled word or a something that has to do with a website. Well at first I stopped scripting and then I am still do it. Oh, well. As an Irish toast goes” May Ye Be In Heaven Half An Hour Before The Devil Knows You’re Dead”
