Letters to Juliet!

I recently read the book Letters to Juliet by Lise and Ceil Friedman. It was about a group of volunteers in Verona, Italy who respond to thousands of letters each year sent there to the most famous herione of William Shakeseare's play's Romeo and Juliet. People have been sending letters there to Julet asking for advice usually about there love lives among other things. It was an informative book about the history of the secretaries to Juliet and about the play and Verona itself. The sample letters in the book made me both cry and laugh. The book came with a piece of stationary paper and an envelope. I wrote my own letter and intend to send it shortly. The webstite to get contact info about the Club Di Guilietta- The Juliet Club and learn more about them is www.Julietclub.com well worth a read is the book and definatly recommend writing to them.

Drifting into the Depths

Drifting into the Depths

Drifting fast into the deep blue water
All around me pulling me down
Oh how I would give anything to be lifted
As I feel I can not

Struggling hard as life takes its toll
Forever fearing what I know I shan’t
Never think about yesterday; that is easy
Never think about tomorrow; harder to do

Stay in the present never wander
I can’t for I am in constant limbo
Worry, worry all I do
Can no one break my awful fall?

Is there a being to raise me from the depths?
To save my soul, my body and mind
To be forever thanked for the gift they give me
My life put straight

I learned that I must dig and claw my way out
Of the nightmarish hole
It is my burden and my salvation
To do so

In the depths I see the shadows
But above I see the sliver of light
Go down further where I may never get out
Or claw and fight to light above

The decision is simple
But the aide to my ordeal
Has yet to show it’s self
But it is faith that tells me they are close

I can’t see them or feel them
Yet I know they are there
I shall soon see them in the murky waters
Lending a hand and bringing me out

That shall be the day I leave the depths and reemerge
To the light of the world
To be able to revile in the simplicity of all around
To be in the arms of my protector

In and Out of Time

In and Out of time

The sun has come
the mists have gone
we see in the distance
our long way home

I was always yours to have
you were always mine
we have loved each other
in and out of time

When the first stone looked up at the blazing sun
and the first tree struggled up from the forest floor
I have always loved you more

You freed your braids
gave your hair to the breeze
it hung like a hive of honey bees

I reached in the mass
for the sweet honeycomb there
Hah
God how I loved your hair

You saw me bludgened by circumstance
lost, injured, hurt by chance

I screamed to the Heavens
loudly screamed
trying to change our nightmares
into dreams

The sun has come
the mists have gone
we see in the distance
our long way home

I was yours to have
and you were always mine
we loved each other
in and out, in and out, in and out of time

The Strangest Wal Mart Customer

Dear Mrs. Denner,
Over the past six months, your husband has been causing quite a commotion in our store. We cannot tolerate this behaviour and may be forced to ban both of you from the store. Our complaints against Mr. Denner are listed below and are documented by our video surveillance cameras.
June 15: Took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in people's carts when they weren't looking.
July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in House-wares to go off at 5-minute intervals
July 7: Made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to the women's restroom.
July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official voice, "Code 3 in House-wares. Get on it right away."
August 4: Went to the Service Desk and tried to put a bag of M&M's on layaway.
September 14: Moved a "CAUTION - WET FLOOR" sign to a carpeted area.
September 15: Set up a tent in the camping department and told other shoppers he'd invite them in if they would bring pillows and blankets from the bedding department.
September 23: When a clerk asked if they could help him he began crying and screamed, "Why can't you people just leave me alone?"
October 4: Looked right into the security camera and used it as a mirror while he picked his nose.
November 10: While handling guns in the hunting department, he asked the clerk where the antidepressants were.
December 3: Darted around the store suspiciously while loudly humming the "Mission Impossible" theme.
December 6: In the auto department, he practiced his "Madonna look" by using different sizes of funnels.
December 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed through, yelled "PICK ME! PICK ME!"
December 21: When an announcement came over the loud speaker, he assumed a fatal position and screamed "OH NO! IT'S THOSE VOICES AGAIN!"
December 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited awhile, and then yelled very loudly, "Hey! There's no toilet paper in here!"
Once again we cannot tolerate this behaviour in our store.
Regards, Wal-Mart

Alligators in the Pool

A CEO throwing a party takes his executives on a tour of his opulent mansion. In the back of the property, the CEO has the largest swimming pool any of them has ever seen.
The huge pool, however, is filled with hungry alligators.
The CEO says to his executives "I think an executive should be measured by courage. Courage is what made me CEO. So this is my challenge to each of you: if anyone has enough courage to dive into the pool, swim through those alligators, and make it to the other side, I will give that person anything they desire. My job, my money, my house, anything!"
Everyone laughs at the outrageous offer and proceeds to follow the CEO on the tour of the estate. Suddenly, they hear a loud splash. Everyone turns around and sees the CFO (Chief Financial Officer) in the pool, swimming for his life. He dodges the alligators left and right and makes it to the edge of the pool with seconds to spare. He pulls himself out just as a huge alligator snaps at his shoes.
The flabbergasted CEO approaches the CFO and says, "You are amazing. I've never seen anything like it in my life. You are brave beyond measure and anything I own is yours. Tell me what I can do for you.
The CFO, panting for breath, looks up and says, "You can tell me who the hell pushed me in the pool!"

Best Known Man In the World!

Well Sulio's boss thinks for a minute and then comes up with a name. "Tom Selleck! I bet you don't know Tom Selleck!" Sulio says "Tom Selleck! Tom and I were in boy scouts together when we were kids!" but Sulio's boss says "No you weren't!" then Sulio says "Yes we were!" so they fly to Hollywood and drive up to Tom Selleck's house. Sulio knocks on the door and Tom Selleck answers and Sulio goes "Tom!!!" and Tom goes "Sulio!" and they hug and catch up for 30 minutes and Sulio's boss can't believe it. But then he thinks "Well that could happen, it's just one person," so he tells Sulio and Sulio says "OK, pick somebody else!"
This time Sulio's boss has someone in mind! "The president, Bill Clinton! You don't know Bill Clinton!" but Sulio says "Oh yes I do! Bill and I were on debate team together in college!" Sulio's boss says "No you weren't!" and Sulio says "Yes we were!" so they fly to Washington and they catch up with the President at a press conference. They work their way through the crowd until Sulio get's close enough to catch Clinton's eye and waves "Bill!" and the President waves "Sulio!" and after the press conference they hug and catch up for 30 minutes and Sulio's boss is stunned-- he can't believe it. But then he thinks "Well that's just two people in one country-- that doesn't mean he knows everyone in the whole world!" so he tells Sulio and Sulio says "OK, pick someone out of the world spectrum and I know them!"
And Sulio's boss knows just who to pick so he says "The Pope! You do not know the Pope!" and Sulio says "The Pope! The Pope BAPTIZED me!" and Sulio's boss says "No he didn't!" and Sulio says "Yes he did!" so they fly to Rome where the Pope is giving Mass in front of hundreds of thousands of people. They work their way through the crowd-- without much luck-- so Sulio says "Boss, we're never gonna get there together through all these people so I tell you what--I'll work my way up there and when I do, I'll give you a sign that shows you I know the Pope!" and he leaves. Well Sulio's boss waits and waits and waits and just when he's about to give up, he sees the Pope come out onto the balcony and right there beside him is Sulio!
Shortly afterwards, Sulio's boss passes out. Sulio comes back and finds his boss passed out and he fans him and says "Boss! Boss! Wake up!" and when his boss comes to, he asks "Boss what happened?" Sulio's boss looks at Sulio and says "OK, I can see Tom Selleck. I can see Bill Clinton...hell, I can even take the Pope! But when somebody standing next to me asks 'Who's that up there with Sulio?' that's a little more than I can take!

The White Wolf's Legend!



The White Wolf's legend !
The history which I´m to tell you goes back up in the mists of time.
In this period, the earth was covered with vast unlimited forests, certain were inextricable and the misled travelers rarely found their road.
In these time there, wolves lived numerous, they formed very treated on a hierarchical basis clans, strong and brave, they had the other enemies only the men.
The men when to them fed a deep hatred to wolves and when they were face to face, it was rare that both survive this meeting.
Hardly the child of the men walked, that he had learnt to hate the wolf.
Every sold decade, wolves, only the chieftains and some elected representatives began the last great journey. Of all the regions of the North of the hemisphere, they convergaient in the same place, the vast clearing in the center of a deep and black forest, somewhere in a country which we shall call later FRANCE.
Some came from a great distance, it was the big gathering during which male wolves and female still solitary were going to seal a new wedding alliance, they came there to find the companion of a life.
The leaders shared their knowledge and the young people built their descent.
This year there, WHITE WOLF , still solitary chieftain came to find a partner there, making road he thought of the heavy secret which was his.
Some months earlier, during a hunting, he had discovered a young lady fainted in the fresh snow. He had approached her slowly, suspiciously as we had always taught him, long minutes had so passed by, when suddenly the young lady moved, she half-opened eyes and far from being terrified by the sight of the wolf, she smiles to him.
She held out a hand and caressed the fur of the animal, that-this welcomed this mark of affection at first in astonishment then soon with pleasure. Without knowing that he could understand her, she explained him her fear when she had seen itself misled in the forest, by listening of the noise, she had begun running without seeing a big branch which blocked the road, she had stumbled heavily and had fainted.
While speaking to him she had not stopped caressing him. She looked him straight in the eyes and asked him to take him up to the village, only she says, I shall never find my road.
WHITE WOLF ran, it saw out her up to the entry of the village and for a long time it stayed there, to watch at her leaving, even when he could not see her any more.
Of return in the taniere of the clan, he understood that he would never be the same, never he would see the men in the same way.
He began even to mean watching for the entry of the village in the hope of the see.
In numerous kilometres from there, a she-wolf and her brother walked to the side of a chieftain, they made they too route towards the big gathering.
The she-wolf CALYPSONE came to make it wedding alliance, she hoped for it for a long time but since the last summer, she was lived by the fear, her road had crossed that of an injured gentleman, instead of denouncing him to the pack as it is necessary, she had hidden him, covered with leaves and with boughs and had fed him until he can manage only.
The man had never shown the slightest fear in front of the she-wolf, on the contrary he liked speaking to him, to caress her, he made him confidences as he would have made him to one of his fellow men. He dreamed about a world or the men and wolves would make the peace, a world or the hatred of the other one shall not exist any more.
One evening while CALYPSONE came to find him, he had left by leaving on the ground his scarf, a little of his smell that she Took pleasure to sniff.
Often, since then, she came to lengthen at feet of the tree which had been the witness of their friendship.
The sacred clearing was ready, all the participants had gathered in several circles, in the middle were the solitary persons, it was necessary of custom to observe and when a male wolf found a she-wolf at her/his convenience, he advanced in the middle of the circle, then from there by crawling he went to the elected representative.
This sacred evening, when perceived CALYPSONE WHITE WOLF, she recognized immediatement the companion who lived in its dreams, the one that she had always waited for.
So, pushing aside all the rules, she advanced on him, without fear, looking at him at the bottom of her golden pupils. WHITE WOLF, as if it had always known what was going to arrive, accepted CALYPSONE as copmpagne without taking offence in a cavalier way that it had used to achieve the aim.
Same night their union is sealed. The big wise person gave his agreement having verified that they did not belong to the same clan and that their two statures harmonized between them.
The she-wolf said its farewells to the clan which had seen him growing and got ready for the journey of return. Their trip is without history.
Unconsciously or step, WHITE WOLF built their shelter not far from the place oû it had discovered the young lady last winter.
In the spring of the year which followed, CALYPSONE gave birth to two wolf cubs, a male and a female. Before putting packsaddle, she had admitted to WHITE WOLF the traitor whom she had made for her race, by hiding and by feeding a. WHITE WOLF human being had confided him in his turn his secret and since then they did not form more than one.
One night, they were wake by one of the shouts which made them go out of their den, they perceived far off a thick smoke, a fire fired the sky .Les shouts lasted for a long time and at the crack of dawn a smell bitter reached until them.
The magic of wolves in these time there was big and their even bigger hatred of the human beings, several clans had united to destroy a village which had killed some of theirs .Ceux which had not died in the fire, were destroyed by wolves.
WHITE WOLF collected his partner and its youngs and decida to go away for ever from these barbaric wolves, he wanted a different world for his descent.
At the same moment, a man and a woman, only surviving of the massacre avoided too the night horror.
The legend says that the road of wolves crossed that of the human beings.
That WHITE WOLF recognized the woman which he had helped as well as recognized CALYPSONE the man as were the one that she had hidden in wood.
We also say that they made road together up to a big clearing. Only with their courage, they built a new world or all those who lived without hatreds were welcome. The human beings as the wolves...
" WHITE WOLF is at the origin of a new race of wolves, closer to the man and which many years later will give birth to this race of civilized wolf which we shall call THE DOG.

Taxi Ride!



Taxi ride !
Twenty years ago, I drove a cab for a living. It was a cowboy's life, a life for someone who wanted no boss. What I didn't realize was that it was also a ministry. Because I drove the night shift, my cab became a moving confessional. Passengers climbed in, sat behind me in total anonymity, and told me about their lives. I encountered people whose lives amazed me, ennobled me, made me laugh and weep.
But none touched me more than a woman I picked up late one August night. I was responding to a call from a small brick four-plex in a quiet part of town. I assumed I was being sent to pick up some party people, or someone who had just had a fight with a lover, or a worker heading to an early shift at some factory in the industrial part of town.
When I arrived at 2:30 a.m., the building was dark except for a single light in a ground floor window. Under such circumstances, many drivers just honk once or twice, wait a minute, then drive away. But I had seen too many impoverished people who depended on taxis as their only means of transportation. Unless a situation smelled of danger, I always went to the door. This passenger might be someone who needs my assistance, I reasoned to myself. So I walked to the door and knocked.
"Just a minute," answered a frail, elderly voice. I could hear something being dragged across the floor. After a long pause, the door opened. A small woman in her 80's stood before me. She was wearing a print dress and a pillbox hat with a veil pinned on it, like somebody out of a 1940s movie. By her side was a small nylon suitcase. The apartment looked as if no one had lived in it for years. All the furniture was covered with sheets. There were no clocks on the walls, no knickknacks or utensils on the counters. In the corner was a cardboard box filled with photos and glassware.
"Would you carry my bag out to the car?" she asked.
I took the suitcase to the cab, then returned to assist the woman. She took my arm and we walked slowly toward the curb. She kept thanking me for my kindness.
"It's nothing," I told her. "I just try to treat my passengers the way I would want my mother treated."
"Oh, you're such a good boy," she said.
When we got in the cab, she gave me an address, then asked, "Can you drive through downtown?"
"It's not the shortest way," I answered quickly.
"Oh, I don't mind," she said. "I'm in no hurry. I'm on my way to a hospice."
I looked in the rearview mirror. Her eyes were glistening. "I don't have any family left," she continued. "The doctor says I don't have very long."
I quietly reached over and shut off the meter. "What route would you like me to take?" I asked.
For the next two hours, we drove through the city. She showed me the building where she had once worked as an elevator operator. We drove through the neighborhood where she and her husband had lived when they were newlyweds. She had me pull up in front of a furniture warehouse that had once been a ballroom where she had gone dancing as a girl. Sometimes she'd ask me to slow in front of a particular building or corner and would sit staring into the darkness, saying nothing.
As the first hint of sun was creasing the horizon, she suddenly said, "I'm tired. Let's go now."
We drove in silence to the address she had given me. It was a low building, like a small convalescent home, with a driveway that passed under a portico. Two orderlies came out to the cab as soon as we pulled up. They were solicitous and intent, watching her every move. They must have been expecting her.
I opened the trunk and took the small suitcase to the door. The woman was already seated in a wheelchair.
"How much do I owe you?" she asked, reaching into her purse.
"Nothing," I said.
"You have to make a living," she answered.
"There are other passengers," I responded.
Almost without thinking, I bent and gave her a hug. She held onto me tightly. "You gave an old woman a little moment of joy," she said. "Thank you."
I squeezed her hand, then walked into the dim morning light. Behind me, a door shut. It was the sound of the closing of a life.
I didn't pick up any more passengers that shift. I drove aimlessly, lost in thought. For the rest of that day, I could hardly talk. What if that woman had gotten an angry driver, or one who was impatient to end his shift? What if I had refused to take the run, or had honked once, then driven away?
On a quick review, I don't think that I have done anything more important in my life. We're conditioned to think that our lives revolve around great moments. But great moments often catch us unaware . . . beautifully wrapped in what others may consider a small one.

Five More Minutes

Five More Minutes !
While at the park one day, a woman sat down next to a man on a bench near a playground. "That's my son over there," she said, pointing to a little boy in a red sweater who was gliding down the slide.
"He's a fine looking boy" the man said. "That's my son on the swing in the blue sweater." Then, looking at his watch, he called to his son. "What do you say we go, Todd?" Todd pleaded, "Just five more minutes, Dad. Please? Just five more minutes."
The man nodded and Todd continued to swing to his heart's content. Minutes passed and the father stood and called again to his son. "Time to go now?" Again Todd pleaded, "Five more minutes, Dad. Just five more minutes." The man smiled and said, "O.K."
"My, you certainly are a patient father," the woman responded.
The man smiled and then said, "My older son Tommy was killed by a drunk driver last year while he was riding his bike near here. I never spent much time with Tommy and now I'd give anything for just five more minutes with him. I've vowed not to make the same mistake with Todd. He thinks he has five more minutes to swing. The truth is, I get Five more minutes to watch him play."
Life is all about making priorities, what are your priorities? Give someone you love 5 more minutes of your time today.

Juggling!!

J U G G L I N G
Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in the air.
You name them--work, family, health, friends, and spirit, and you're keeping all of these in the air.
You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back.
But the other four balls--family, health, friends and spirit are made of glass. If you drop one of these, they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for balance in your life.
How?
Don't undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others. It is because we are different that each of us is special.
Don't set your goals by what other people deem important. Only you know what is best for you.
Don't take for granted the things closest to your heart. Cling to them as you would your life, for without them, life is meaningless.
Don't let your life slip through your fingers by living in the past or for the future. By living your life one day at a time, you live ALL the days of your life.
Don't give up when you still have something to give. Nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying.
Don't be afraid to admit that you are less than perfect. It is this fragile thread that binds us together.
Don't be afraid to encounter risks It is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave.
Don't shut love out of your life by saying it's impossible to find. The quickest way to receive love is to give; the fastest way to lose love is to hold it too tightly; and the best way to keep love is to give it wings.
Don't run through life so fast that you forget not only where you've been, but also where you are going.
Don't forget that a person's greatest emotional need is to feel appreciated.
Don't be afraid to learn. Knowledge is weightless, a treasure you can always carry easily.
Don't use time or words carelessly. Neither can be retrieved.
This was written by the President and CEO of Coca-Cola Enterprises, Brian G. Dyson. It was used at Georgia Tech's 172nd Commencement Address Sept. 6, 1991.
Life is not a race, but a journey to be savored each step of the way. Yesterday is History, Tomorrow is a Mystery, and Today is a gift: that's why we call it "The Present."

Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters

Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters expands the original text of the beloved Jane Austen novel with all-new scenes of giant lobsters, rampaging octopi, two-headed sea serpents, and other biological monstrosities. As our story opens, the Dashwood sisters are evicted from their childhood home and sent to live on a mysterious island full of savage creatures and dark secrets. While sensible Elinor falls in love with Edward Ferrars, her romantic sister Marianne is courted by both the handsome Willoughby and the hideous man-monster Colonel Brandon. Can the Dashwood sisters triumph over meddlesome matriarchs and unscrupulous rogues to find true love? Or will they fall prey to the tentacles that are forever snapping at their heels? This masterful portrait of Regency England blends Jane Austens biting social commentary with ultraviolent depictions of sea monsters biting. Its survival of the fittest and only the swiftest swimmers will find true love!

The above text is from the book Sense and Senseibility and Sea Monster book I just saw in the store yesterday. I blogged about Pride and Prejudice and Zombies when I saw that. I love those books and I think it is stupid to make them w/ supertnatural creatures. I know there supposed to be quirky and funny but I would hate a good classic to be ruined the way it is.

The Road Not Taken-Robert Frost


The Road Not Taken
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,And sorry I could not travel bothAnd be one traveler, long I stoodAnd looked down one as far as I couldTo where it bent in the undergrowth.Then took the other, as just as fair,And having perhaps the better claim,Because it was grassy and wanted wear;Though as for that the passing thereHad worn them really about the same.And both that morning equally layIn leaves no step had trodden black.Oh, I kept the first for another day!Yet knowing how way leads on to way,I doubted if I should ever come back.I shall be telling this with a sighSomewhere ages and ages hence:Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--I took the one less traveled by,And that has made all the difference.

The language of the hand fan



To hold the fan with the right hand in front of the face. Follow me.

To hold it in the left ear. I want you to leave me alone.

To let slide it on the forehead.You have changed.

To move it with the left hand. They are watching us.

To change it to the right hand.You are imprudent.

To throw the fan. I hate you.
To move it with the right hand. I love another.

To let slide it on the cheek. I want you.

To hold it closed.Do you love me?

To let slide it on the eyes. Go away, please.

To touch the edge of the hand fan with the fingers.I want to talk to you.

To hold it on the right cheek.Yes.

To hold it on the left cheek. No.

To open and close it. You are cruel.

To leave it hanging. We will continue being friends.

To fan slowly. I am married.

To fan quickly. I am engaged.

To hold the fan in the lips.Kiss me.

To open it slowly. Wait for me.

To open the hand fan with the left hand. Come and talk to me.

To strike it, closed, on the left hand. Write me.

To semiclose it in the right and on the left. I cant.

To hold it opened, covering the mouth. I am single.

Secret For a Nightingale-Victoria Holt



Secret for a Nightingale
1986
As a child in India, beautiful, high-spirited Susanna Pleydell first becomes aware of her special gifts to soothe the sick. But she puts aside her dream of helping others when she meets the dashing and sophisticated Aubrey St. Clare.
Only after they are married does Susanna learn of Aubrey's brooding, dangerous nature - his obsession with the occult and his weakness for opium. But most fearful of all, she discovers Aubrey's strange association with Dr. Damien Adair, a powerful figure who exerts a sinister influence over her husband. And when Aubrey's frightening behavior leads to tragedy, Susanna flees, vowing revenge on the man she holds responsible - Damien Adair.
Closely guarding her dark secret, Susanna travels to the Middle East and the Crimean War, where she begins a new life as a nurse, working beside the legendary Florence Nightingale. It is there that fate brings the mysterious Dr. Adair back into her life. And it is there that Susanna finds her desire for revenge now tempered by a baffling new emotion. Is it possible that her once unforgiving heart has suddenly crossed the boundary between hate . . . and love?
I think since I have begun reading this book I believe it would have fit perfectly in 21 Century life. I mean the Heroine is so Naive I mean how could she not see her husband was an Opium addict. On there honey moon in venice he went to see his hook up you know and I thought that is so 21st Century drugy life. Her husband goes crazy on the drug but she still loves him until her son dies when left home with his high father. I found out that Opium is from a Poppy flower in asian countries. It is used Mediceinally it makes morphine but illegially it is cultivated and parts are taken to make Heroin and other drugs. It gets annoying at the end of the book when she meets the man she believes was her husbands drug dealer or hook up. It's like I hate you now I love you your so hot I hate you I love you its like oh get over it. Then she hooks up with him and I think (Since i'm still reading I took a peak ahead!HEHEH LOL!!)marries him even though he's like I can't settle down now I'm a doctor but I'll visit you and the kids we have talk about a dead beat. He's like I love you and you know he gonna being hookin up with other woman (So a philander)so what stay home while your husband goes to another country only coming home for a booty call every now and then. I would say no but his herione is like so naive and stupid. I like Victoria Holt Novels but this one has issues.

One of my My Fav songs from Mama Mia
Half past twelve And I'm watching the late show in my flat all alone How I hate to spend the evening on my own Autumn winds Blowing outside the window as I look around the room And it makes me so depressed to see the gloom There's not a soul out thereNo one to hear my prayerGimme! Gimme! Gimme! A man after midnight! Won't somebody help me chase the shadows away Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight Take me through the darkness to the break of the day Movie stars Find the end of the rainbow, with their fortune to win It's so different from the world I'm living in Tired of TV I open the window and I gaze into the night But there's nothing there to see, no one in sight There's not a soul out thereNo one to hear my prayerGimme! Gimme! Gimme! A man after midnight! Won't somebody help me chase the shadows away Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight Take me through the darkness to the break of the day Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! A man after midnight! Won't somebody help me chase the shadows away Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight Take me through the darkness to the break of the dayThere's not a soul out thereNo one to hear my prayerGimme! Gimme! Gimme! A man after midnight! Won't somebody help me chase the shadows away Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight Take me through the darkness to the break of the day Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! A man after midnight! Won't somebody help me chase the shadows away Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight Take me through the darkness to the break of the day

FRUSTRATED! Can't Get Literary Agent











I can't get a Literary Agent for my Series of Novel's I've been writing for the past five years. I am so frustrated I keep getting Thanks for sending us your Query but it's not right for our agency but best of luck in finding representation. Now I get depressed even looking at my own work. I think it's time I stop it isn't my Novels fault it isn't getting published it's mine. I probably am not any good at writing but I love it. I knew I wouldn't be some famous writer but I at least want one of my novels 2 be published and be given a chance. I now it's a hard field to get into and that the agents can't take on people they believe they can't sell their manuscript. I don't want to stop writing but for the time being I might stop looking for Literary representation.

Contador, Armstrong trade barbs after Tour

MADRID (AP)—Alberto Contador and Lance Armstrong are sniping again after a fragile truce during the Tour de France.
Contador, who secured his second Tour win on Sunday in Paris, said he had no admiration for the American as a person and tensions between the two had a negative effect on the Astana team. Armstrong, the seven-time champion who finished third in his first Tour since 2005, responded that Contador should “drop this drivel.”
“My relationship with Lance Armstrong is zero,” Contador said late Monday in his hometown of Pinto outside Madrid. “He’s a great rider and he did a great Tour. Another thing is on a personal level, where I have never admired him and never will.”
Armstrong, who had criticized Contador as being inexperienced earlier this year, responded with his own salvo on Twitter.
“Hey pistolero, there is no ‘I’ in ‘team’. what did I say in March? Lots to learn. Restated,” Armstrong wrote.
The “pistolero” remark stems from Contador’s habit of celebrating victories by shooting an imaginary pistol.
“Seeing these comments from AC (Alberto Contador). If I were him I’d drop this drivel and start thanking his team. w/o them, he doesn’t win,” Armstrong added. “A champion is also measured on how much he respect his teammates and opponents.”
Contador and Armstrong entered this year’s Tour jousting for position as the Astana team leader—an unusual situation in cycling, where team’s normally have a clear No. 1 rider who is supported by the rest of the squad.While Armstrong briefly held a slight edge over the Spaniard in the first week, Contador proved too strong in the mountains and was able to pull away for a decisive edge in the Alps.
On a couple of occasions, Armstrong questioned Contador’s tactics during the race, saying they went against the good of the team.
“It was a tense situation,” said Contador, who also won the race in 2007. “We didn’t have fluid communication despite the fact that we were the two main riders on the team. And this meant the rest of the cyclists and the technical staff also felt a bit of tension.”
Armstrong is launching his own U.S.-based team for next year, while Contador’s future with Astana remains uncertain.
“Wherever I go I will look for a teammate who is with me 100 percent,” Contador said.


Okay after reading this I think Contador should show some respect to Armstrong. Contador is a strong rider and I pretty much knew he would win I wanted Armstrong 2 win though. Next Year I hope Armstrong wipes the floor with Contador. They are two good riders. I think Contador is 2 cocky and doesn't respect his team or other riders a serious flaw in a race like this. Armstrong is older and has more experience Seven wins 2 Contadors two. I think Contador needs to remember the thing we all learned in school "IF you can't say anything Nice don't say anything at all" since he's acting childish in his comments please it's over just wait till 2010 Le Tour De France then bring it.

Giant Mystery Blob Moves Through Alaskan Waters

Hey siss thanks 4 the story now I have another odd thing 2 add to my blog.

It's big, it's black, it's gooey and it may be alive.
Giant blobs of thick, oily biological material are floating in the Arctic Ocean's Chukchi Sea north of the Bering Strait, reports the Anchorage Daily News.
"It's certainly biological," Coast Guard Petty Officer 1st Class Terry Hasenauer told the newspaper. "It's definitely not an oil product of any kind. It has no characteristics of an oil, or a hazardous substance, for that matter."
No one in the North Slope towns of Barrow and Wainwright can recall ever seeing anything like it.
Jellyfish and sea birds are getting caught up in the sticky, stinky stuff, which according to one official "has hairy strands on it."
"It's definitely, by the smell and the makeup of it, it's some sort of naturally occurring organic or otherwise marine organism," added Hasenauer.

Sweet Poem!!

This is one of my favorite love poems. I think if a man thought this of me I would be in love with that man forever. I think it is a lovely sweet poem. I think this is what a soul mate and best friend really means. I think when your with someone you want to be different for that person and the feeling is mutual.
“Love” by Roy Croft
I love you,Not only for what you are,But for what I amWhen I am with you.
I love you,Not only for whatYou have made of yourself,But for whatYou are making of me.I love youFor the part of meThat you bring out;I love youFor putting your handInto my heaped-up heartAnd passing overAll the foolish, weak thingsThat you can’t helpDimly seeing there,And for drawing outInto the lightAll the beautiful belongingsThat no one else had lookedQuite far enough to find.
I love you because youAre helping me to makeOf the lumber of my lifeNot a tavernBut a temple;Out of the worksOf my every dayNot a reproachBut a song.
I love youBecause you have doneMore than any creedCould have doneTo make me goodAnd more than any fateCould have doneTo make me happy.You have done itWithout a touch,Without a word,Without a sign.You have done itBy being yourself.Perhaps that is whatBeing a friend means,After all.

A thought!

Every morning you are handed 24 golden hours. They are one of the few things in this world that you get free of charge. If you had all the money in the world, you couldn't buy an extra hour. What will you do with this priceless treasure?Author Unknown

Love and Time

Inspirational love stories - Love and Time

Once upon a time, there was an island where all the feelings lived: Happiness, Sadness, Knowledge, and all of the others, including Love. One day it was announced to the feelings that the island would sink, so all constructed boats and left. Except for Love.Love was the only one who stayed. Love wanted to hold out until the last possible moment.When the island had almost sunk, Love decided to ask for help.Richness was passing by Love in a grand boat. Love said, "Richness, can you take me with you?"Richness answered, "No, I can't. There is a lot of gold and silver in my boat. There is no place here for you."Love decided to ask Vanity who was also passing by in a beautiful vessel. "Vanity, please help me!""I can't help you, Love. You are all wet and might damage my boat," Vanity answered.Sadness was close by so Love asked, "Sadness, let me go with you.""Oh . . . Love, I am so sad that I need to be by myself!"Happiness passed by Love, too, but she was so happy that she did not even hear when Love called her. Suddenly, there was a voice, "Come, Love, I will take you." It was an elder. So blessed and overjoyed, Love even forgot to ask the elder where they were going. When they arrived at dry land, the elder went her own way. Realizing how much was owed the elder, Love asked Knowledge, another elder, "Who Helped me?""It was Time," Knowledge answered."Time?" asked Love. "But why did Time help me?"Knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and answered, "Because only Time is capable of understanding how valuable Love is."
The Law of the Garbage Truck !
One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport. We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of us.
My taxi driver slammed on his breaks, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches! The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us. My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, he was really friendly.
So I asked, 'Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!' This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call, 'The Law of the Garbage Truck.'
He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment. As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they'll dump it on you.
Don't take it personally. Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Don't take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home or on the streets.
The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their day. Life's too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so..... 'Love the people who treat you right.. Pray for the ones who don't.'
Life is ten percent what you make it and ninety percent how you take it.

THE DAM BEAVERS!
This is an actual letter sent to a man named Ryan DeVries by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, State of Michigan. This guy's response is hilarious, but read the State's letter before you get to the response letter. SUBJECT: DEQ File No.97-59-0023; T11N; R10W, Sec. 20; Montcalm County Dear Mr. DeVries: It has come to the attention of the Department of Environmental Quality that there has been recent unauthorized activity on the above referenced parcel of property. You have been certified as the legal landowner and/ or contractor who did the following unauthorized activity: Construction and maintenance of two wood debris dams across the outlet stream of Spring Pond. A permit must be issued prior to the start of this type of activity. A review of the Department's files shows that no permits have been issued. Therefore, the Department has determined that this activity is in violation of Part 301, Inland Lakes and Streams, of the Natural Resource and Environmental Protection Act, Act 451 of the Public Acts of 1994, being sections 324.30101 to 324.30113 of the Michigan Compiled Laws, annotated. The Department has been informed that one or both of the dams partially failed during a recent rain event, causing debris and flooding at downstream locations. We find that dams of this nature are inherently hazardous and cannot be permitted. The Department therefore orders you to cease and desist all activities at this location, and to restore the stream to a free-flow condition by removing all wood and brush forming the dams from the stream channel. All restoration work shall be completed no later than January 31, 2003. Please notify this office when the restoration has been completed so that a follow-up site inspection may be scheduled by our staff. Failure to comply with this request or any further unauthorized activity on the site may result in this case being referred for elevated enforcement action. We anticipate and would appreciate your full cooperation in this matter. Please feel free to contact me at this office if you have any questions. Sincerely, David L. Price District Representative Land and Water Management Division









** This is the actual response sent back: ** Dear Mr. Price, Re: DEQ File No. 97-59-0023; T11N; R10W, Sec. 20; Montcalm County. Your certified letter dated 12/17/02 has been handed to me to respond to. I am the legal landowner but not the Contractor at 2088 Dagget, Pierson, Michigan. A couple of beavers are in the (State unauthorized) process of constructing and maintaining two wood "debris" dams across the outlet stream of my Spring Pond. While I did not pay for, authorize, nor supervise their dam project, I think they would be highly offended that you call their skillful use of natures building materials "debris." I would like to challenge your department to attempt to emulate their dam project any time and/or any place you choose. I believe I can safely state there is no way you could ever match their dam skills, their dam resourcefulness, their dam ingenuity, their dam persistence, their dam determination and/or their dam work ethic. As to your request, I do not think the beavers are aware that they must first fill out a dam permit prior to the start of this type of dam activity. My first dam question to you is: (1) Are you trying to discriminate against my Spring Pond Beavers or (2) do you require all beavers throughout this State to conform to said dam request? If you are not discriminating against these particular beavers, through the Freedom of Information Act, I reque st completed copies of all those other applicable beaver dam permits that have been issued. Perhaps we will see if there really is a dam violation of Part 301, Inland Lakes and Streams, of the Natural Resource and Environmental Protection Act, Act 451 of the Public Acts of 1994, being sections 324.30101 to 324.30113 of the Michigan Compiled Laws, annotated. I have several concerns. My first concern is -- aren't the beavers entitled to legal representation? The Spring Pond Beavers are financially destitute and are unable to pay for said representation - so the State will have to provide them with a dam lawyer. The Department's dam concern that either one or both of the dams failed during a recent rain event causing flooding is proof that this is a natural occurrence, which the Department is required to protect. In other words, we should leave the Spring Pond Beavers alone rather than harassing them and calling their dam names. If you want the stream "restored" to a dam free-flow condition please contact the beavers -- but if you are going to arrest them, they obviously did not pay any attention to your dam letter--they being unable to read English. In my humble opinion, the Spring Pond Beavers have a right to build their unauthorized dams as long as the sky is blue, the grass is green and water flows downstream. They have more dam rights than I do to live and enjoy Spring Pond. If the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection lives up to its name, it should protect the natural resources (Beavers) and the environment (Beavers' Dams). So, as far as the beavers and I are concerned, this dam case can be referred for more elevated enforcement action right now. Why wait until 1/31/2003? The Spring Pond Beavers may be under the dam ice then and there will be no way for you or your dam staff to contact/harass them then. In conclusion, I would l like to bring to your attention to a real environmental quality (health) problem in the area. It is the bears! Bears are actually defecating in our woods. I definitely believe you should be persecuting the defecating bears and leave the beavers alone. If you are going to investigate the beaver dam, watch your step! (The bears are not careful where they dump!) Being unable to comply with your dam request, and being unable to contact you on your dam answering machine, I am sending this response to your dam office. THANK YOU RYAN DEVRIES + THE DAM BEAVERS Author unknown
