” 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.
