Happy New Year 2015!

Wednesday, December 31st, 2014


Every year as the clock strikes midnight on December 31st, the eyes of this glorious world turn to my City..heh….the brilliant lights, the dynamism…the “happening” that is: Times Square.

Ah……..the Anticipation.
10, 9, 8, 7, 6………..

It’s as if the world is holding its breath…until that clock finally strikes twelve.
Waiting for the “Ball” to descend from atop One Times Square.

Waiting to usher in the hope and promise of the New Year. Woohoo!

Last year I was one of the one million (crazy) people in Times Square, along with literally -millions nationwide and over a billion watching throughout the entire world.

Whether you’re part of a star-studded musical performance down South, tossing balloons up North, shaking pom-poms in the U.K., confetti in Spain, or possibly watching a colorful pyrotechnic display in Australia….
For just one moment, let us feel as though we are truly united.
What a feeling…..

We bid a collective farewell to the past year, and we best pray hard sweet friends, for hope for the coming year.
(And we all know why)
Good riddance to bad karma and bad vibes. Ack!

The time is drawing near………
Sooooooooo….Pucker up guyz n dollz!

HAPPY NEW YEAR SWEET FRIENDS FAR AND NEAR!

Youth is when you’re allowed to stay up late on New Year’s Eve. Middle age is when you’re forced to.
Bill Vaughn

New Year’s Eve, where auld acquaintance be forgot. Unless, of course, those tests come back positive.
Jay Leno

Most of all:
Keep speaking out. Never give up.

Like the elephant, we are unconscious of our own strength. When it comes to understanding the power we have to make a difference in our own lives, we might as well be asleep. If you want to make your dreams come true, wake up. Wake up to your own strength. Wake up to the role you play in your own destiny. Wake up to the power you have to choose what you think, do, and say.
(Keith Ellis)

Bless you all sweet readers for your unending support and Love!

Avoid Holiday Weight Gain! :-)

Thursday, December 25th, 2014

Turkey, stockings, that jolly guy in the red suit–!!! these things are supposed to be stuffed during the holidays.
You? Not so much.

It may seem impossible to make it to the New Year without gobbling up every last delectable goodie. Well, read on for an early holiday gift: a guide to enjoying your favorite treats through the season so you don’t come out the other side of January 1 with extra padding.

Stay Slim this Holiday Season!

1-Eat before you cook.

2-If you have to sample something, put it on a plate first,,,, Eating right out of the pot or pan makes it easy to lose track of how much you’re consuming.

3-Keep healthy snacks on hand.

4-Be aware of little bites. They may look harmless, but mini appetizers often contain about 100 calories and can easily add up without filling you up.

Yikes! If you did over do it:

Ice it. Pick up some small plastic containers when you’re food shopping so you can freeze leftovers in reasonable portions
Move them out of sight—stat. Wrap and put leftovers away as soon as the partygoers leave so you aren’t tempted to nibble as you clean up in the kitchen.

TAKE A 30-MINUTE WALK. Do this first thing in the morning to help jumpstart your metabolism and put you in a healthy-eating mindset for the rest of the day.

Orrr…Just hang out here and inhale all these goodies..lol

Sweet Friends..Wishing you all the
Hope, Wonder, and Joy
that the Season can bring!

War on Christmas Again and Again

Sunday, December 14th, 2014

The now-repaired banner asks “Are you good without God? Millions are.”

CHICAGO (Reuters) – Holiday hooliganism is no longer limited to thieves running off with baby Jesus from a nativity scene or vandals throwing eggs at mangers.

Atheist decorations also have become a target for destruction after their addition to some public forums in recent years as a counter-argument to menorahs and creches, a Wisconsin-based secularist group said on Friday.

Athiests Display Vandalized

Ah yes. Those charming, polite athiests at it again….

Can’t imagine why anyone would be um ‘offended’ by their anti GOD messages, can you?

The world is growing colder and darker during our chilly winter months.
Short days. Long nights. Veryyyyyy long nights.

But as we know sweet Friends…Tis all about “the Light”.
The candles of the Menorah, the dazzling Christmas tree lights.
All dispelling the darkness in their own special way.

Can you still discover the magic of timeless tales.

Can you sense the wonder of it all.

Can you laugh?

An atheist professor was teaching a college class and he told the class that he was going to prove that there was not a God.
He said, “God if you are real, then I dare you to knock me off this platform. I’ll give you 15 minutes!”

Ten minutes went by He kept taunting God, saying, “Here I am God, I’m still waiting” He got down to the last couple of minutes and a big 230 pound United States Marine happened to walk by the door and heard what the professor said. marine22.gif
The Marine walked in the class room and in the last minute, he walked up, hit the professor full force, and sent him flying off the platform.

The professor got up, obviously shaken and said, “Wow, where did you come from and why did you do that?”
The Marine replied, “God was busy, so He sent me!”

Bwhahahah!

Happy Chanukah, Merry Christmas, Seasons Greetings and Happy New Year to you all Sweet Friends!
