The Way You Make Me Feel

Hello, Happy Music Monday! I'm so glad to be able to join in today as I just got my power back on. Irene left us without power for almost 24 hours. We were lucky enough to have a generator to run our DVD player. When the guys went to bed I put on "This Is It" and once again escaped in the magic of Micheal's music. At the end of the movie this time, I did not feel as sad about his passing as I did last year when I watched it, even though it is still such a tragedy. I felt how lucky we all are that he was here in the first place. I thought about what a lifetime of great music he made that demonstrated, fun, love, peace, and humanitarian causes that will live on forever. So I decided to share his magic with all of you today,
Thanks for visiting,

Micheal would have been 53 years young today. The
strange thing is I did not even realize it was his
Birthday until after I did this post!

Reefer For Rufus and Breasts, Peace and Love

Hi Everyone, Happy Saturday! Here is proof that slowly but surely, the world is getting a little crazier by the day! I hope you have a laugh, or two as I poke fun at some of the news. I had to share this funny rendition of "Go the Fuk To Sleep"! Now I'm off to hunker down for Hurricane Irene! Stay safe my friends on the East Coast.

A Seattle company has developed a marijuana
pain patch for use on Rufus and all his
animal friends suffering from arthritis,
cancer, and other chronic pain! Oh happy day
for anyone who wants to have a buddy like

Authorities have confirmed that there were
no "ILLEGAL" (remember that word!)
substances in Amy's system at the time of her
death. In October you will hear it is another
case like Micheal Jackson and Anna Nicole Smith
The doctors gave her whatever she wanted and
she OD on it! No real surprise with the findings

I think what Jessica Beagley really has
is a case of "M√ľnchausen by wanting 15
minutes of fame on the Dr.Phill show"
Just another example of being careful
what you wish for, she was found
guilty of Child Abuse this week

I'd like to see how these ladies feel about
the movement when time and gravity leave
their breast in the droop and wrinkled zone!!
Until then Breasts, Peace and Love!!

National Go Topless Day” to honor Women’s Equality Day. The annual protest is held in 7 US cities to promote the idea that women have the same constitutional right to be bare chested in public places as men. Go Topless was founded in 2007 by French guru Rael, leader of the Raelien movement.

As much as I love having my grandchildren for sleepovers, for some reason as soon as they get to Mimi's house the idea of it being a "sleep" over has turned into a "stay up all night" or "let's sleep in shifts, so one of us is awake all night" over! I think the reason for that is, no matter how many times I tell them it isn't so, they continue to believe it is a matter of time before the clowns and ponies show up!! So needless to say I may just have to get a copy of this book! If you go on Youtube you can hear the words to the story much clearer with Samuel Jackson reading it, but the way she reads it is just sooo funny!

Summer Fun

Hi Everyone, I can't believe summer is almost over already, and course here in New England it seems to fly by so much quicker than Winter!! Even though this summer has been a tough one, with no license, no job, and Pete's work slowing down to almost none, we have been able to still have a good time with the family! We have made the best out of what resources we do have and kept our spirits up. And I have always believed the best things in life are free anyway!

Hello, I would have to agree with Samuel's words of wisdom. This past year has been all about re-discovering myself. And as I have taken the time to rediscover myself, I have grown more and more comfortable in my own skin. I love the feeling because it is not from a place of conceitedness. It is from a place of gratitude. I'm so grateful for having another chance to live my life in a much better way than I was. Failures and mistakes don't need to be feared as we have been conditioned to think. Accept them for what they are and move on. Once you do that, you never what you will discover about yourself.

We learn wisdom from failure
much more than from success

We often discover what we will do
by finding out what we will not do

And probably he who never made
a mistake, never made a discovery

Never A Friend

Hello Everyone, I hope your doing well, I wrote this poem for someone I once thought was a friend, who turned out to be so far from that. I'm sure you have all had that person in your life.
Thanks for visiting,
Janet :)


I sit and reflect
while slowly time
goes past
thoughts of what was
a friendship
burned up and turned to

Pain and loss are
common words
Describe very little
of the hurt
I had such hopes
that you were true
Would forgive
my defects,
my imperfects
Would have a
When I was in
the dark

How wrong was I, how
delusioned my mind
Friend became almighty judge
as such cruel words
flew off your tounge

Your self showed
it's truth,
Your better
than all others
around you
A way to survive
the reality of your
Good luck with that
Remember Karma will
return your words
and thoughts

A Laugh Or Two

Hi Everyone, Happy Saturday! I have started watching or (DVR-ing I should say, I can't stay up that late anymore!) Jimmy Fallon's late night show and I'm still trying to decide if I really like the show. Some of the skits are funny and some, not so much, but I really like him so I'll keep watching to see if it grows on me! I liked this ecard skit, I think you might too. And as I end this post I should cover myself by saying that Arnolds love child is really not crappy, it just fits in with the joke! I wouldn't want to get in trouble like that Boston blog that posted something about another celebrity's kid, (Tom Brady). I did check out that blog, out of curiosity, and all in all it is disgusting. I hate that he is getting all this attention even if it is bad attention! But such is life. Have a great weekend and I hope you enjoy a laugh or two.

Arnold was seen wearing this T-Shirt "I survived Maria"

So Judy Bloom said the Maid should get this T-Shirt
and wear it around!

A Nobodys Nuptials

Hi Everyone, I hope your doing well. I was watching T.V. tonight when I heard about Kim Kardashian's upcoming nuptials, which is expected to cost about $20 MILLION DOLLARS! I of course know of her, like all of you, but I have never watched her show's with her family because I could care less about celebrity lives. After what I heard tonight I am disgusted by the fact that she is, along with all the sponsors, wasting so much money on one day! So I decided to look up what she was all about anyway? What is the big deal about her getting married? Here is what I found out:

According to Wikipedia Kim Kardashian (born October 21, 1980) is an American socialite, television personality, model, and actress. Daughter of Robert Kardashian who defended O.J.!! Sure ok, but I still don't why she get's so much publicity. Then I checked out Yahoo answers. The most popular answer to my question is "cause she was best friends with Paris Hilton for a while, but what really got it going for her was the famous sex tape she made with Ray J." Oh, I thought to myself, I get it now, she is famous for nothing! No talent on her part. I mean really, anyone can make a sex tape LOL! (Well, then again, maybe some people shouldn't!) Her Daddy was famous for helping get a double murderer off, and then Paris Hilton decided that was a good enough reason to let her be her friend. Wow, and people feed into this sham of a "reality" person by buying her clothes and perfume and watching all her shows, how sick is that! Society has really got to stop enabling theses losers to live like Kings and Queens for no good reason. She has not earned this, if she did I would be happy for her. This material marriage is going to be a two hour special on E! as well, I can only hope she trips walking up the isle, now that would be entertainment for me! That may sound mean, but hey, it's how I really feel. I hope they do have a moment of thoughtfulness for the less fortunate and send some of the leftover 200,000 dollar cake to the kids in Somali.

Classic Saturday

Hello, Happy Saturday! Today I thought I would share some funny clips from my favorite movies. What I love about these movies, besides the comedy, is they bring us back to a time in America when we were all in a better place. There was still hope that we would do better than our Parents, and be able to live the "American Dream" without the constant worry of losing our Jobs, our retirement, and being a paycheck away from going to the "Poor House" as my Dad use to say! So enjoy the look back while you have a few laughs,

Heal With Hurt

Hi Everyone, I hope your doing well. I am doing great. My blogger friend Maitri , (who's blog is beautiful and inspiring, please take some time to visit it!), shared this link from OM times ezine today on Facebook. It really hit home with me, because I have truly lived this by taking part in support groups. This article summed up, reminds me of the saying that "Sometimes the Less Broken have to fix the More Broken" Simple way of saying that we are all broken, in one way or another, from our own life experiences. Once we accept that we have been hurt or broken, we can choose to get stuck in it (victim role) or let it go, and grow. If we grow, we can use the hurt as a tool. A tool to truly help others with "pure and true" empathy and compassion. What better gifts are there to give to a fellow human being who is suffering? None, absoulutley none.

Using Your Pain to Help Others

You can channel your pain into helping
others and spreading a tide of curative
energy throughout the world.

Pain is a fact of being and one that permeates all of our lives to some degree. Since the hurt we feel may be a part of the experiences that have touched us most deeply, we are often loathe to let it go. It is frequently easier to keep our pain at our sides, where it acts as a shield that shelters us from others and gives us an identity—that of victim—from which we can draw bitter strength. However, pain’s universality can also empower us to use our hurt to help others heal. Since no pain is any greater or more profound than any other, what you feel can give you the ability to help bring about the recovery of individuals whose hurts are both similar to and vastly different from your own. You can channel your pain into transformative and healing love that aids you in helping individuals on a one-to-one basis and spreading a tide of curative energy throughout the world.

The capacity to heal others evolves naturally within those who are ready to disassociate themselves from their identity as victims. In fact, the simple decision to put aside the pain we have carried is what grants us the strength to redeem that pain through service. There are many ways to use the hurt you feel to help others. Your pain gives you a unique insight into the minds of people who have experienced trauma and heartache. You can draw from the wellspring of strength that allowed you to emerge on the other side of a painful experience and pass that strength to individuals still suffering from their wounds. You may be able to council individuals in need by showing them the coping methods that have helped you survive or simply by offering sympathy. A kinship can develop that allows you to relate more closely with those you are trying to aid and comfort.

Helping others can be a restorative experience that makes your own heart grow stronger. In channeling your pain into compassionate service and watching others successfully recover, you may feel a sense of euphoria that leads to increased feelings of self-worth and optimism. Your courageous decision to reach out to others can be the best way to declare to yourself and the world that your pain didn’t defeat you, and in fact it helped you heal.
