View Of The News Edited

Hi there, I must say somedays the news can just be to close to home, funny and downright wrong! I feel so bad for this poor women who was forced to remove her adult diaper for TSA agents. For some reason I could not help but picture my mother, who was in a wheelchair at the end of her life, in that situation. She would have said, you want my adult diaper, I'll give you my adult diaper, smack right up side the head LOL! Nobody put her in the corner (you know like baby!) She was a spitfire :) Then I couldn't believe they gave air time to these two guys who were so drunk they 1)fell off an escalator after a concert, and 2)got arrested for a 4th drunk driving while driving a golf cart. Hey maybe I could drive around in a go cart or a golf cart, don't think you need a license for those! By the end of the news cast I was laughing my ass off. Not that the TSA story was funny at all, no way, no how. But between picturing my mom putting those TSA agents in their place and watching what was just being praised as the city of Champions last week suddenly turn into a city of drunkenness and mobster's (Whitey Bulger), I had to laugh, Ya that's the Boston I know. Watching the news has become a source of entertainment for me, who knew that would ever happen! Can't wait to tune in tonight to see what comes up next LOL!

Saturday Night Laughs

Hi Everyone, It's Saturday and it's time for some laughs. Now remember Tosh.O is for Mature Audiences, so you have been warned! I find his sense of humor so funny, he has the guts to say what most of us are really thinking. He has a unique way of putting a spin on the videos he shows from the internet. And the way he pokes fun at some of the crazy people in the videos just cracks me up. Now I know some people get offended by his comedy, but you've got to remember, he is a comedian, it is a routine to make us laugh. So I hope you have a couple of laughs and enjoy them!

Science Proving Life After Death?

Hello, Happy Monday (I guess!) My brother had called me last week to tell me about this series, Through The Wormhole with Morgan Freeman on the Science Channel. I had seen previews for it, but his call got me to watch it. I'm so glad I did. It is a really fascinating series. In the video below you will hear from, (I believe his name is Dr Alexander?) and he taught and performed Neurosurgery at Harvard Medical School for 15 years. In 2008 he slipped into a coma for seven days, trapped inside his virtually brain dead body. A person in a coma often wakes with no memory of anything, no dreams, nothing, remember that as you watch his story. I included both the long and short version so you can choose how much you want to watch of his story. I personally believe the soul of a person lives on. I was convinced of it as well when I went to see a medium last year. My Father who had passed away 23 yrs before came through, he said things to me through the medium, that she could not have known about us personally. It left my husband and his friend, who are pretty much atheist's, believers too. She explained that the Soul or Spirit, when it leaves our physical body, simply moves on to another place or level, and they are often around us. Most of us simply are not in "tune" with their presence. She said she "tunes in" to the spirits and describes it as if she was tuning into a radio station, it's fuzzy at first, but then it becomes clearer and clearer. It is a gift I believe that some people are lucky to have. This program suggests that Science is on the edge of proving Life After Death. Wouldn't that be incredible if they do. So if you watch, let me know, what do you believe?? I'd love to know :)

On This Father's Day

Hi Everyone, In 1987 I had written this poem for my Father as a gift on Father's Day. I could not wait to give it to him. Sadly he passed away on June 3rd that year of a massive heart attach while at work for the Boston Globe, right before Father's Day. So it was read at his funeral. I was a lucky girl to have had him as my Father. 24 years later his little girl still misses him much. My friends use to tell me he looked like Walter Matthau. I kinda think so too. Happy Father's Day to all of you Dad's out there today. If your lucky enough to still have your Dad in your life, don't wait for this day each year to tell him how special he is. Time will slip through your hands and before you know it, he will too.
Thanks for visiting,
Janet :)

On this Fathers day
we want you to know
how much we appreciate
that through all the hard
times you didn't go.
through thick or thin
till death do us part
you never let the love
of your family leave
your heart

On this day you deserve
our praise
if we only knew the exact
words to say.
you should have had received
the man of the year,
brought about all mankind
for a cheer

But since these things
are out of our touch
let us thank you so much
oh so very much

"Albert James Buresh II"
Fondly remembered

Hi Everyone, I just wanted to let you know I'm working on some changes with this blog. It will look different from time to time until I find a new look that I really like. So bear with me! I am also changing the basic idea for my blog. I had started this blog with the premise of it being about Spirituality, doing inspirational posts, etc. And I do still plan to do those types of posts, but I am also going to do posts on many different topics, to change things up a little, a mixed bag so to speak! I have been finding it difficult to just keep finding spiritual subjects, inspirational posts. This will give me more creative freedom as a writer. More freedom to just post about whatever I'm feeling like or thinking about that day. This past year has been all about "Change" for me, change for the better, so it's only natural for this blog to change along with me. I am sure you understand where I'm coming from, especially if you are a writer. So I'll leave you today with a tune about personal change/growth! Have a great Friday :)
Thanks for visiting,
Janet :)

I’m coming home,
Let the rain wash away all the pain of yesterday
I know my kingdom awaits and they’ve forgiven my mistakes
Back where I belong, yeah I never felt so strong
I feel like there's nothing that I can't try
If you ever lost a light before, this ones for you

Love That Dirty Water

Hi Everyone, I have to congratulate the Boston Bruins for bringing home the Stanley Cup after 39 years, I love being a sports fan here in Boston! Our teams have done what no other cities teams have done, 4 championships in 7 years! I can only imagine how my 4 brothers are feeling today. Watching the game last night brought me back to all the fun I had growing up with them and my Dad while we watched all the sports teams here in Boston. Yes Boston your my home!! Way to go Bruins!

Hi Everyone, I hope your doing good today, I am doing better, even though yesterday when I applied at Kohls for a job they told me instantly online that I was not qualified for the position, but Thank you for applying, WTF? I'm a college graduate and I'm not qualified to be a salesperson?? I just had to laugh, it has gotten to that point! What really made me feel better is hearing on the TV yesterday that 24 million people are unemployed or underemployed in the U.S. right now, so even though I am limited with what jobs I can do right now, I am so not alone in feeling the way I do! I knew the number was high, but didn't realize it was that high! I love this quote from Brene Brown's book "The Gifts of Imperfection". I think it is a read I could use right now in my life. It helped to remind me that I am still worthy, imperfections and all. If you have forgotten like me, then I hope it reminds you too.

Thank You

Hello, Just quick note to say Thank you to my commenters from yesterday. You did help me more than you can know. It just builds up, sitting here every day, the phone ringing with people who want money from me that I don't have. Not being able to hop in the car to escape the four walls that those dam rings echo off of. It builds up when I have to spend a beautiful day like today in a court house explaining to another creditor why I can't pay my bill. Ya "It" builds, by "It" I'm sure you get what I mean, "It" is the disappointment and frustration you feel that this is not how my life was suppose to turn out and all that encompasses. So maybe I'll find the strength to say Thank You for what I am going through (although I find that hard to believe right now LOL!) as it suggests in the poem below and listen, listen really hard for the guidance and courage to keep my dreams and hope from fading away. Thank you again,
Janet :)

I Quit, I Give up

Hi Everyone, To be honest this is how I feel these days. I don't think my dreams will ever come true. The more I try the more I feel I'm shoveling shit against the tide. I'm not gonna bore you with details, but simply put, not being able to drive limits the jobs I can apply for, so no work means not being able to pay my student loans, which means default, which means no going back to college for a Master's Degree. Not being able to get a job also means I can't help my husband and family out cause now he is running out of work! I am at the point, like many of the unemployed, that I don't even want to bother applying for another job because it will probably be just another rejection, "Thank you for applying, but we have chosen another candidate for this position" So I might as well line up at Welfare, forget about becoming anything in this lifetime. Somedays it is hard to do this blog anymore, I feel so uninspired. I have always loved to inspire others, have hope for the future, but it's hard too give it out to others when you begin to lose it yourself. The only thing that keeps me going these days is my family. What keeps me going on this blog is my commenters. For that I am grateful.
Thanks for visiting and reading my vent,
Janet :)

Me, I'm a part of your circle of friends
And we notice you don't come around
Me, I think it all depends on you
Touching ground with us but
I quit, I give up, nothing's good enough
for anybody else, It seems
And I quit, I give up, nothing's good enough
for anybody else,It seems!!

And being alone is the best way to be
When I'm by myself it's the best way to be
When I'm all alone it's the best way to be
When I'm by myself, nobody else can say goodbye

Everything is temporary anyway
When the streets are wet, the colors slip
into the sky
But I don't know why that means you and I are,
that means you and I
I quit, I give up, nothing's good enough
for anybody else,It seems
And I quit I give up, nothing's good enough
for anybody else, It seems

And being alone is the best way to be
When I'm by myself, it's the best way to be
When I'm all alone, it's the best way to be
When I'm by myself, nobody else can say

Life Is Sweet

Hi Everyone, I hope you doing good. I had such a great weekend with my family. Between Christopher's Birthday Party, and a couple of romantic walks on the water front in Plymouth Ma with Pete, they remind me that even in the toughest of times, and work wise things are getting tough for us, Life is Sweet! Together we are strong and we will make it through what ever comes our way. I hope you take some time every now and then and notice all the sweetness that surrounds you in your life :)
