What is too come?

Thinking of Nancy

I happened upon this little bit of oddness while on the internet. http://articles.cnn.com/2011-01-28/travel/idiot.abroad_1_karl-pilkington-ricky-gervais-series-preview?_s=PM:TRAVEL and it made me think of you Nancy. In one of your posts you spoke about Andrew Zimmerman’s show Bizzare Foods. At first reading I thought this would be a totally stupid show because of Ricky Gervais who I can not stand. After reading on to the second page though I might at least check it out once. But anytime someone mentions moving out of your comfort zone you should know to just say NO!

A Mother’s Education

I watched the most heart warming story on the news a while ago. A mother in Pakistan isĀ  attending the first grade with her two young sons. Most importantly she has the blessing and encouragement of her husband. What a wonderful thing to see when what we usually see from that part of the world is the exact opposite. I loved that the husband said if his wife is educated then his family will benefit from it. I am so happy for this woman.

Protests/Looters

Why? Why is anyone looting in the middle of these protests in Egypt? Are they standing up for something or trying to tear the country down? It’s sad to hear to hear about the Egyptian Museum being torn up like that. I have never understood looting during a time of crisis. It’s such a deplorable act. Good luck and best wishes to the good people of Egypt.

For Migraines

I just read this tip in the book, Before The Change by Ann Lousie Gittleman, Ph.D.

Rosemary an astringent herb, alleviates migraine, is an antioxidant, and combats heart disease and infections. Quite a lot in a single spoonful of oil. So do we ingest it for a migraine or smear on our face?

From CMT’s new show Working Class

Do I smell that good?

A while ago my neighbor told me about his trip to the movie theater. He had waited a long time to see this particular movie. As he entered the movie theater a little late he was happy to see that there was only one other person in the theater or maybe it was a couple. So he picked a spot right smack in the middle as any normal human would do. After the movie had been running about ten minutes a man came in, looked all around and sat down right next too him! I think I would have had to have a scene right then and there. That is just too weird and freaky. Being the polite man that he is he just kept quite and watched the movie all through that mans lip smacking and crunching of a huge barrel of popcorn and sluppring a huge drink.

Today I went to get my hair cut and I sat in the far corner because the sun was beaming in on the rest of the chairs. About four chairs to my right, all empty. And across the room about five more empty chairs. Now I am by no means an unfriendly person. I love too meet new people, really I do. So in walks an elderly man, he looks around at all of the chairs and comes right up and sits in the one next too me. I smiled and said hello. I really did wonder though why would he sit right next too me? That just seems like an odd thing to do. At least he wasn’t a creepy, gross old man. Not that I could tell anyway. We talked and he was quite entertaining but still wouldn’t it be a little more normal to put at least one chair between us? Whats up with people because I know I don’t smell that good. My neighbor usually does though. Maybe thats what happened in his case. He wears nice colonge but I am allergic too perfume. So whats the deal? Really people whats the deal. Don’t sit so close. It’s creepy.
