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…

"I needed something to really tie up the Love and Laughter series. The idea of a book of poems based on the Love and Laughter series came to mind. With a little help from someone I love with all my heart, this book was created."

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…
