Support Children with Cancer and Other Deadly Diseases

Sponsored by: St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

Working together under one roof, physicians and scientists at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital have pioneered treatments that have helped push the overall survival rates for childhood cancers from less than 20 percent in 1962 to 80 percent today. And the survival rate for the most common form of childhood cancer, acute lymphoblastic leukemia, has risen from just 4 percent to 94 percent during that same time.

St. Jude is one of the world's premier centers for the research and treatment of pediatric cancer and other catastrophic childhood diseases. Children from all 50 states and from around the world have come through the doors of St. Jude for treatment, and thousands more around the world have benefited from the research conducted at St. Jude - research that is shared freely with the global medical community. St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by ins…

Love and Laughter Through The Tears

We fell so deeply,
our souls enter-twined,
we are eternal,
through the seeds of time,

You have given me laughter,
through pain and sorrow,
I still receive the humor,
through the breeze that flows,

Your time on earth ended,
I filled with tears,
I see and feel your presences near,

Reflections Of The Year

Image
As we are near this years end close we all take a moment to reflect on things that have happened and occurred. In the world as events had unfolded but mostly we sit and reflect on our past year. I truly believe everyone does this if not they really should. Reflection is not a way to take stock of our faults or others. It is not a time to remember the not so kind person that have passed through our lives. It is a time to reflect things had personally occurred to us in our lives the things we shall remember of this year that will come past.

I look back at my friends how glad for the new one's I have acquired and very happy to have my old ones so present in my life. When I was dancing with the devil they were right there by my side. Keeping me from jumping off that cliff and wanting to give up and call it a permanent day in life forever. They made me laugh and even cry. They held me when I needed it and cursed with me when I became angry. They stood by me the whole time neve…

Biggest Irritations Of 2009

Since 2006 at the end of each year I list my biggest irritations of the year. So here we go the biggest ones I have endured for the years close.

I am sure everyone has seen the jeep commercial. Where we have these women who go to beauty salon and spend two hours getting their hair done. Mind you two hours in beauty salon is not cheap. Their hair comes out fantastic. They hop in their jeeps because nothing is going to stop them from driving their jeep. Okay no woman that I know of in her right mind will spend that time getting their hair done and blow it all to hell just to drive their jeep. Had to been a male who thought of that commercial.

Best Buy commercial now I like Best Buy I got this computer there. However, I know for a fact we don't pull up to best buy wondering what to buy someone and have a group of Christmas caroling employees belt out a song that tells what it is we want.

Geico commercial is not any better here. Grant it some are cute. The one with the boss…

And I Thought Dancing With The Devil Was Tough

I have danced with the devil to survive. I have actually won and found rainbow each time. It was a hard dance. For those of us who have danced or are dancing know how hard it can be. The pain, fear, tension, anxiety and whatever else you care to add into the mix. However, yep you knew I had one coming and yes it is the male species again. I guess they just can not stop drinking that stupid water or something. I am just so frustrated I could most likely scream at this point. Wait I have. Do not get me wrong here not all males are stubborn and so dam conforming in the me male you woman routine. Some can not seem to get past it though. I do not mean to clean house, have dinner ready. Oh no its much much worse it is the old adage I be male hear me roar or bleach whatever the case my be at the time. I have to do it all. I have to be responsible for all finances if not my dam ego takes a blow. Hello guys this is 2009. Just to give you a news flash while you are sipping that d…

My friend

I must say that Miss Nicholson is a good friend maybe even the most awesome of friends. What a fighter she is maybe more of a fighter then all of us combined. Through our friendship I was able to begin a life long dream of writing only because of her inspirations. When I look back at my life and the hardships I have encountered mine are mild in caparison to hers. She everyday dances with a devil yet never loses her sense of purpose her wonderful wit or the awareness of her roots. You ask what devil well its cancer!! Yes that devil is a part of all our worlds. Can anyone say today that this devil hasn’t changed their world I sure you can’t? I have seen it in my family and in dear friends and lost my share. It’s been in my mom a survivor in the lose of my best friend to name a couple. For some it comes hard for others it is numbing for all it’s a tragedy. For my good friend Deb Nicholson it’s an outlet another way to express herself and a way for her to show the world she’s a winner. An…

Before It’s Too Late

Before it's to late,
I want to lay with you each night,
wake up with you in the morning sun,

Before it's to late,
I want to walk with you hand in hand,
in the dusk of night,

Before it's to late,
I want you to hold me tight,
like you will never let go,

Before it's to late,
I want to feel your touch,
embrace our bodies entertained,

Before it's to late,
I want us to walk in the rain,
to do all the things we can,

Before it's to late,
I want to be with you,
share our love while I can,

Before it's to late,

Ok now I probably got a lot of persons now confused. To date or as far back as I can think of never have I started a blog with a poem. For this one it was deemed appropriate. I can preach and give as many lectures as I want at times. I can yell what I have to say from the roof tops from here to heaven and back. I can put my words on a billboard or write them on paper and throw them into the sea. My point here sometimes it s…

Flying On Tattered Wings

I am sure some of you of heard of the title before. Yes it is a poem I had written and yes it is a chapter in my new book. That is not why I called this one by that title. It is because well right now it is appropriate to me. It fit somehow. We had this circle of special friends that I am sure you all heard of. Yes sometimes I can blast it to hell and back. It is number one in my life of important things. I have tried a million and one times to make people aware of cancer and how it can come like the devil out of the rain, make it a full blown storm. How once afflicted the bastard has you dance with him for your soul. You dance till your exhausted. Till your brow is dripping sweat. Till feet are numb and your heart now aches. You dance to the point of exhaustion and try not to be defeated. You fall and get up and gasp for another breath. You slip , your drenched, your cold . Your body shivers and your soul is crying for a light. A light at the end of this dance. At t…

Curtice/Markley

Curtice/Markley country/acoustic/classic rock fresh out of Trenton, Michigan. These cousins after a term of estrangement have recently reunited to bring their musical talents in to the world.

They have just put out their first conducive demo entitled “All Of The Above”. Judging by the sound of their musical talents these two should take the country music world by storm.

This duo is formed of Eric Markley and Craig Curtice forming the group Curtice/Markley.

Craig Curtice is responsible for lead vocals, lyric writing and production.
Eric Markley who has had musical talent since the very early age of three years old plays all the instruments. They have formed a unique sound which stays with you in your mind, heart and soul after listening to it.

In this authors opinion their sound will soon bring a new wave of country to the scene. Stay tuned for the squidoo lens of Curtice/Markley which I am in process of creating complete with author testimonial.

Keep On Dancin

This will make sense to the special circle of friends, those with rainbows or waiting for them. It may make sense to our friends we have there with us that give us strength and courage each day. It may hopefully make sense to the rest of you.

Dancin with the devil in the rain. One more time you need to dance. Grant it I know from first hand experience along with those of us who have danced and are still dancing.
It is not easy when your doing the dancing in the rain and all you see is storm clouds. It is not easy when the storm clouds start to drop hard rain down and you feel as all you are doing is slipping on the ground and never gaining your footing. You look for shelter but there is none that you can see to seek out. The storm is fierce and intense and is tiring you out. You question the meaning of the dance what is the sense. You just want to lay down in the rain let it keep on falling. Lay on down and let him out dance your soul. You are tired of dancing, tired of the …

Save Critical Habitat for the Florida Panther

Target: Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar
Sponsored by: Sierra Club
No protected habitat exists for the Florida panther, the only big cat east of the Mississippi. And fewer than 100 individual panthers remain, making the Florida Panther one of America's most endangered species.
Scientists conclude that the panther's existing habitat is the bare minimum needed for the remaining population to survive. Five panthers have already been killed on south Florida highways this year, with an additional 24 panthers killed by vehicles in the preceding two years. This situation must not continue.
The Interior Department has the ability under the Endangered Species Act to protect the remaining habitat now. Urge Interior Secretary Ken Salazar to designate critical habitat for the Florida panther today!

for those I love,

Dancin till the end of my day,

Dancin in the rain with the devil,

Until and if that day should come,

Why Am I Dancing With The Devil

Simply because I can. I am not the only one dancing with him either.
I would like to thank those of you that sent me messages about doing my dance. You have taken the time to find out why and support the dance with me. However, I am going to take a moment to say for those of you who did not read the blog or have enough common sense to find out why before messaging me with some statement which I find to be a little rude ok a lot rude and inconsiderate, maybe you should of found out first. The dance is a very serious one as most of us are aware. I do not need smart remarks about how you would like to dance with me. If you have been paying attention to the blog and bulletins you would of known why. Instead you prefer to take out a minute or two and prove just what type of a jerk you can be. Then after you find out you just stammer a message on back to me. Like that old saying goes ignite brain before words leave your mouth and are put in a message that you will regret and feeling…

Where We Find Love

We all want love to be found. We all want to share that special feeling with someone. We want someone to share our life with, be our best friend, lover and significant other. We want to have this for one person for the rest of our life.

A lot of us have been looking for it to no avail. We feel as if at times we try to dam hard and then again maybe not enough. We see our friends so dam happy to the point it actually can bring us down and spark a little envy inside our souls. So where do we find love? I am sure we have all tried the general avenues of this one from dating sites to blind dates and don’t even start me on those. We sit home alone at night wondering if we will ever find it or is this our destiny just to be alone. Then you hear that infamous line “ you will find love when you least expect it. Yeah right sure not a problem. Ha bet me. Seriously make me a bet on that one. It is not that easy. You hear a lot of where to meet that perfect someone and just about try …

Special Circle Of Friends

First I would like to state for the record that all my friends are very special to me. That I always tried not to make one more special than the other. They each have their own qualities that bring something special into my life each and every day. Whether it is their sense of humor or their ability to give advice. Each one of them holds a special place in my heart. I am glad to be friends with each one of them. This includes all my friends both on and off line.

However, among the many friends there is a special group, a circle of friends. You could say we belong to a select society if you will. We share love, laughter and tears. It is a society where there is really only one membership requirement. It is a requirement we all have met. It is a requirement that no one should ever have to meet. Our circle is one that you do not wish to join this society. For if we all had our way we would not belong to it either. For your journey starts at disbelief and takes you on a lot o…

They Actually Do Hold Stupid Water Meetings

Never thought they would but they do hold meetings now for it. Us women knew men were starting to drink that stupid water when their ah well memory shall we say started failing or they were acting stranger than normal which is hard to tell. Depends on your definition of normal. We knew they had sold this water at Wal-Mart by the case. Now we have evidence they hold meetings. Yes it is true ladies, they now hold meetings for the stupid water drinking. The chapters name, what else of course, Men Who Drink Stupid Water. Where are these held? Yep, you guessed it at the Wal-Mart parking lot at midnight. Several sightings have been reported throughout the United States. It’s like a mass cult or something going on. Reminds me of the pod people. Umm could be on to something here.

Latest round of events was enough for us. We figured it could not get stranger or worse. We were wrong. Yes men I admitted it we were wrong. Not as wrong as the male population lately but wrong. Ok, n…

Fur farms are terrible things, where animals are trapped cruelly in tiny cages where they can barely move and then they are horrificly killed in the most inhumane ways. Skinning, Clubbing, Hanging, and many other unecessary procedures are done to kill the animals. People step on the animals necks so they cant breath and kill them. They are still alive when they skin them, they let them die the most painful deaths. Even dogs are getting killed for fur!! A hidden camera proved everything that happened. The Fur Farm workers do not care at all for the animals and then just chuck them in a pile to let them bleed…

Help Wildhorse Ranch Rescue Save Horses from Abuse

Target:
Extreme Makeover: Home Edition
Sponsored by:
InSpirit Life Coaching
Wildhorse Ranch Rescue (www.wildhorseranchrescue.com) was founded in 1995 by Kimberly Meagher, a single mother of two young children. Kim and her children ran the rescue privately saving horses and mules until WHRR became a 501(c)(3) charity in 2001.
While raising her children on her own, she worked tirelessly to rescue horses, mules and donkeys from abuse, neglect, slaughter and premature death. The plight of the homeless horse became her mission. She eventually went through all of her own money to help fund the rescue, including her retirement fund. The eventual loss of Kim's job did not help. The struggle every day to pay for feed, medical care when necessary and monthly bills can be staggering.
WHRR relies solely on donations and the kindness of those who give of their time to help raise funds, run events and care for the herd. With approximately 40 volunteers, the herd of horses and mules are fed twice …
