........On The Road Again

Hello Dear World !!!!

How are you ????? I packed my suitcase for my trip you heard it here first although packing is hard. I have to be honest with you usually I just throw different pairs of clothing into my bag, cross my fingers and hope that everything won't end up wrinkled.

My family and I are heading to a place called " Crooked River State Park. " I don't know why its called Crooked River but that's the name of the place. Anyway.......I'm just going to finish getting together my last minute items and do my usual stuffing of things I won't be using on my trip into a bag.

Let me ask you a question.......How do you pack for a trip ? Are you a person who packs ahead of time or do you pack like the last minute ?

I will write everything down in a hand written journal that I keep so I can come back and share it all with you my dear friends at J-Land. I will try not to leave out any details. We will be leaving in the morning so if you don't hear from me don't call for a search party unless I'm not back on Monday. My trip is just for the weekend so I shall return.

Anyway.........I was at work today which I have to admit I didn't do much work. I kind of slacked off a bit today but my coworkers said they will get me back to working next week. I will get back to working but I just had to rest up for my trip.....wink, wink........

I will talk to all of you upon my return.........Until then my dear friends. Take care..........

See ya !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What Is Today ? Oh That's Right.....Wednesday

Hello Dear World.....

I trust you are all fine. I wanted to let you know dear world that I won't be visiting you this weekend due to the fact that I will be on a little camping trip with my family. I will miss chatting with you but upon my return I am more than sure that I will have plenty to tell you........

By the way the weather here in Atlanta has changed once more....It was a cold 64 degrees here and it rained for a little while in my neck of the woods. I hope it doesn't rain on my trip. I don't know what my trip will be like but I'm sure whatever we do it will be fun. How is the weather in your neck of the woods ?

I will be happy tonight due to the fact that I get to see my boyfriend on television.....You didn't know I found a boyfriend ? I did and I'm sure your wondering what his name is........His name is Chris, Chris Daughtry that is. He is a singer on American Idol. He is a wonderful looking guy don't you think ?????

Of course I had to go into work today which was busy as usual. Its a crazy house where I work take my word for it. To explain would take forever just know that my work is a real nut house no explanations needed.

I was doing some more reading today here in my J-Land and I wanted to share some interesting journals with you. The journals are titled " Photographs Of My Soul " and " Bit O' Blarney " here are the links........

Photographs Of My Soul -----------

Bit O'Blarney -------------

Please enjoy these journals as I did. I'm sure you will like getting to know these people.

Take care dear world.........

A Reminder.....

Hello Dear World.....

How are you ? I thought I would share something with you. Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day which is a rather sad time to remember how the Nazis of Germany took the lives of millions of Jewish people during World War II. Among those people whose lives were taken the lives of 1.5 million children were also taken. 

During this time a project has started at The William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum called " The Butterfly Project. " The goal of this project is to make 1.5 million butterflies which would equal one for every Jewish child whose life was taken. The butterflies are for the Holocaust Museum in Houston, which is planning a big display.

Here in Atlanta, the William Breman Heritage Museum is collecting the butterflies and will send them to the museum in Texas. Schools, students, churches, people and other groups are invited to help. The project was inspired by the book "I Never Saw Another Butterfly". In the book drawings and poems were made by children at the Terezin Concentration Camp in Czechoslovakia. About 15,000 children younger than 15 were sent to that camp from 1942 to 1944. About 14,900 of them died. At camps like Terezin, the Nazis took children and they were killed right away. Others were tattooed with a number and forced to work. In 1945 the United States and other countries freed the prisoners.

Here is a poem written in the book -

The Butterfly

The last, the very last,

So richly, brightly, dazzingly yellow.

Perhaps if the sun's tears would sing

against a white stone........


Such, such a yellow

Is carried lightly way up high.

It went away I'm sure

because it wished

to kiss the world good-bye.


For seven weeks I've lived in here,

Penned up inside this ghetto.

But I have found what I love here.

The dandelions call to me

And the white chestnut branches in the court.

Only I never saw another butterfly.


That butterfly was the last one

Butterflies don't live in here, in the ghetto.

----------Pavel Friedman, April 6, 1942

Pavel was born in Prague on January 7, 1921. Deported to the Terezin Concentration Camp on April 26, 1942. He died in Aushchwitz on September 29, 1944.

Check out this website ---------

I really found out lots of information from this website and I'm sure you will to dear world. I really did enjoy reading this poem as I'm sure you will. What do you think of the poem ? Did you know about today ?

I just had to share this with you and see what you thought of this information........

Take care dear world

The Monday Daily News........

Hello Dear World......

I wish you were all here with me to enjoy it as I did. you all know I had a really wonderful weekend of celebrating my birthday and getting used to being " 30 " which is going fine.

I really like this journal so here is his address so go by and say hello -------

While reading David's journal I came upon another interesting journal titled " Bluesmoke Inn " which I found quite wonderful. I got to reading it and I had to share it with you dear world. I think you will like it as I do. I hope you enjoy reading it. Here is the address ---------

Haunted Travels

Good evening ladies and gentlemen let me welcome you all to Haunted Travels. I will be your hostess for the evening. So would you like to hear a little haunting tale ? Well how about I tell you about a haunting that will leave you either a skeptic or a firm believer in ghosts. Join me will you ?

My tale begins in a town called Mystic, Conn. where there are reports of a historic whaling ship said to be home to the ghost of a long-ago seafarer. The whaling ship I am speaking of is known as the Charles W. Morgan in which several people have reported seeing an apparition below deck. If your wondering Mystic's Seaport Shipyard Director Quentin Snediker is also a believer in the ghost.

It is reported that a five-member team from the Rhode Island Paranormal Research group visited Mystic Seaport on Friday night to spend time on the Charles W. Morgan, which is the famously known whaling ship where several visitors have reported seeing the apparition. It is widely known that the 165-year-old craft made 37 ocean voyages in search of whales during the 60 years it was in use. It is also widely known that about 1,000 men worked on the Morgan over those decades.

Recently the ship is said to be due for its $3.5 million restoration next year, which is said to be one of the main attractions at the Seaport maritime museum. A group known as the Rhode Island Paranormal Research Group became interested in the Morgan after receiving reports from three other different groups of people about the apparition.

The visitors said that while touring the ship last summer, they saw a man in what appeared to be 19th-century clothing working below deck. They said the man had a pipe in his mouth and nodded to them but he didn't speak.When they returned to the main deck and asked a museum interperter what the man was doing, they were told that no one was down below and that no one was assigned to be on the boat that day. One of the guys from the paranormal research group reported to The Day of New London that he automatically questioned, but "the visitors insisted that they saw something down there."

The guy from the paranormal research group said that when he asked the three groups for more details, they responded with the same accounts. The three groups were from Massachusetts, Arizona and New York and did not know each other. They visited within a week's time of each other. It is said that the reports were the same told by the visitors in question. The head director of the paranormal research group said that he recieved about 40 other reports of possible paranormal activity before those groups related their experiences. The museum officials did give the group permission to conduct their investigation. The museum officials reported " We're interested in what they find out," said the museum publicist Mike O'Farrell, who attended Friday night's investigation.

Other investigators on board the ship said that their few hours on the ship convinced them that there was enough evidence of paranormal activity in certain areas to warrant a return visit with other equipment for paranormal activity. A lady by the name of Renee Blais, who described herself as a " sensitive " who reportedly uses touch and smell to connect with a place's energy, said she felt the presence of a seaman named Gerald. It is reported that she also felt a sense of " sickness, death and despair " among about 15 or so men as they rode out a large storm in their cramped quarters.

Some museum employees were said to not be surprised by the reports of the whaling ship being haunted. One of the ships longtime museum interpreter's who used to be assigned to the Morgan by the name of Dawn Johnson, said she used to hate going down below to close up for the night. It is also said that she reported from her own experiences being below deck that it felt cold and clammy. She reported hearing moaning and creaking as well and she always wondered what it was.

The group also recently investigated reports that at a place known as Ledge Light in New London Harbor believes that its brick lighthouse is haunted by a woman and a group of children. The group plans to return there on June 3.

Alright ladies andgentlemen this ends my tale for the evening. So what do you think ? Do you believe in the haunting ? I believe in all the reports of the haunting myself. I really hope that you enjoyed hearing my little tale of this haunting from Mystic, Conn. I am hoping you will come back for another spine tingling tale when you have the chance. Thanks for joining me.

For now sleep tight. 


More Exciting News..........

Hello Dear World......

How has your day been ? Its a wonderful sun-drenched day here in Atlanta, Georgia and its a wonderful day. My dad is bar-b-queing on our deck and my mom is preparing some ribs. What is my exciting news you might be wondering.......

Well Friday my family and I will be going to a place called " Crooked River State Park " which is located on Georgia's Colonial Coast and it is surrounded by Spanish moss-draped oaks, sounds enchanting doesn't it ? I agree. I can't wait until Friday. My family and I haven't been camping in quite a while. My dad is loading up our popup camper which we take camping with us when we get the chance. Have you ever been camping dear world ???

I would like to share a poem with you by the writer and poet R.Brimm who keeps a journal here at J-Land called " Chosen Words ". Being that I am a fan of his and the fact that I am feeling rather great I thought it was a perfect poem to share on such a beautiful day like today. The poem was included in his e-letter "Squiggles & Giggles" which I am a huge fan. Without further ado.....

Feeding Time


is a moment caught

in the grasp

of memory,

that remembrance

of warm spring sun

spilling across

the valley, a bird

drifting across

the endless blue

of sky, a bee

searching flowers,

a quiet pause that

feeds the soul.




What is the weather like in your neck of the woods dear world ? Are you planning any trips ? What do you think of the price of gas these days ? Do you think its a bit much like ? I just have to ask..

I read a journal today one of my many favorites titled " Dave Cryer, Cave Dryer " which is a great journal. The writer of this journal travels a great deal and I had to share it with all of you. I think you will enjoy reading this journal as I do. You will enjoy reading about his travels and you will want to include it as one of your favorites. Drop by and say hello. Here is the link ------------> Dave Cryer, Cave Dryer ........

Take care my dear world........

Yours, M.

My "30th" Birthday

Hello Dear World.....

How are you ? Well I'm officially " 30 " but no gray hairs as yet. Thank you all for your kind wishes and cards you sent me. I appreciate all of you here at J-Land. You are all so very dear to me. Thank you Mr. Brimm for including me in Squiggles & Giggles that was such an honor it really really was. So dear world I have so much to tell you but I don't know where to start except at the beginning.

How did I wake up ? Hmmmm.....Let me think.....Hmmmmm......Has my memory left me already ??? No, just kidding. I woke up to my family singing " Happy Birthday " to me which was nice and it hit me that it was my 30th birthday.

Today as you all know my family and I went  to the Fernbank Museum Of Natural History. It was my first trip to the museum and I can say that it was amazing.Fernbank is a pretty big museum. There was a lot to see and do at Fernbank. Here is a list of what we saw : A Star Gallery which included 542 twinkling stars, there was also a wide array of seashells collected from the Georgia coast as  well as a 900-gallon aquarium filled with a variety of colorful fish.

Then my family and I took a walk through time in one of Fernbank's galleries which held a giant sloth, a cave, various animals and also the many sights and sounds of the Okefenokee Swamp. In Fernbank we also got to see a 123-foot long, 100-ton, plant -eating Argentinosaurus, the largest known dinosaur to ever walk the earth up close and personal. We also saw a 47-foot long, 8 -ton Giganotasaurus.

At the museum there was also an IMAX theatre with a 12,000-watt digital sound system. My family and I also got a chance to see the fossil remains of a sea creatures that lived during the Jurassic Period more than 150 million years ago. There was quite a bit of hands on activities for the young and for adults of all ages.

Being at the Fernbank museum was an adventure. Being with my family was very wonderful. My nieces also told me that they had a fun time. The greatest part of the museum was the " Chocolate " exhibition which showed where cocoa seeds are found. The exhibition displayed chocolates from all around the world. The exhibition also included a wonderful chocolate shoppe. Being that I am a huge fan of chocolate I wish I could have bought every chocolate in the shoppe. The rich aroma of chocolate flooded the exhibition which was just fine with me.

Wait.....I'm not done yet. After my family and I returned from Fernbank my sister, my oldest niece and one of her friends went to the mall. When we got home I was surprised to find that my folks had bought me a very rich chocolate birthday cake. After the cake we then went out to eat at La Parrilla which is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants. Last night we also went out to eat at a seafood restaurant called " Red Lobster ". At the restaurant my folks had them sing " Happy Birthday " to me. Tonight my folks had " La Parrilla " sing to me while one of the guys played a guitar. You didn't hear the best part......They had me wear a Sombrero which is a traditional Mexican hat as they sang to me.

Tonight was a full day for me turning " 30 ". I couldn't have had a better birthday than the one I had.........I had a very fun day.........I just wish that tonight I will close my eyes and relive every moment of it.

Well dear world.......I couldn't have included any thing else in my day.......Have you ever had a memorable birthday ???

I sure did...

I hope your Saturday was a nice one....Until the sun rises again....... All my love

Happy Easter !!!!

Hello Dear World.....Happy Easter !!!!!

How is your holiday going ? Early this morning at 6:00 there was a sunrise service outside at my church which is St. Philip Benizi Catholic Church.You can find information about my church at this site -------> . It was quite a beautiful service. You might say that it was like a picnic because some people had their blankets spilled out on the ground while other people including my family had beach chairs situated on the grass and walk way. The sun had decided to sleep in but the sky was perfectly blue and it was still a little dark out since it wasn't quite morning. The music at the service was great and it was nice to be with my family. This was my first time going to the sunrise service at my church usually we go about 9:00. I really enjoyed the mass and the there was a Spanish mass inside and you could hear the Mariachi band playing music inside while the sunrise service was going on. All of it was nice.

After the service we went and had breakfast which is always nice to do as a family on a Sunday morning. Dear world, do you have any special traditions or mass at the church you attend ? If you don't mind me asking what is the name of your church dear world ?

As some of you might not know my 30th birthday is coming up this Saturday. When is your birthday ?? Does anyone else have a birthday in April ?

Anyway......I just hope that you have a wonderful Sunday and a very Happy Easter with your family and loved ones. Take care everyone......

What I Did on Friday......

Hello Dear World.....

How are you ? I hope you all will have a wonderful Easter.

How was my Friday you might ask....Well more people at my work talked about how nice my hair looked. Lots of people seemed to wonder why I cut it. They ask me if I have a boyfriend yet and I tell them not yet.

On Friday it was another warm day in Atlanta, Georgia. After I got off of work my mom, my youngest niece and I went to Target which is another one of my favorite places to shop. I bought some things including some CD's. One of my CD's is by the singer NE-YO and the title of his CD is " In My Own Words ". One of my favorite songs on his CD is " So Sick ".

NE-YO has a very wonderful voice. I couldn't wait to go out and buy NE-YO's CD. The first time I heard the song " So Sick " I couldn't wait to get to the store and buy it. One of my other CD's I bought is by a group called " The Black Eyes Peas ". There is a song on the CD called " Where Is The Love " which was written during the tragedy of September 11th.

I also purchased a book written by Elie Wiesel titled " Night " which was recommended to me through a friend online. My friend told me that since I had read " The Diary of Anne Frank " I should read his book.

I ended my day listening to the song "So Sick" which I love, love, love, love. All in all I had a really wonderful day and I'm feeling great. How was your day dear world ?

Something new............and sad

Hello Dear World........

It seems like forever that I haven't been writing you but here I am. Some of you might not know this but I got another hair cut and my hair at this point is..........short. Everyone at work loves it and they have been giving me nice comments on how nice it looks which I appreciate. I haven't had it short in a really long time. People have told me that I look completely different without my long hair. It will be different having short hair now that warm weather is rolling into Atlanta thank goodness. I was getting tired of the cold weather that seemed to linger practically forever in my neck of the woods.

Also the biggest upset here in Atlanta is the price of gasoline which is to the point of $3-a-gallon which has everyone wondering.........when will the prices start to go down again. Getting to work is becoming a huge expense to many here in Georgia. Many people are work say that pretty soon the price of gas will probably sky rocket to $10-a-gallon the way things are going I wouldn't doubt it. Is anyone having the same problem with the price of gas ???

............And now for the sad news. My time with AOL is coming to an end which means I will have to leave all of dear friends here at J-Land. So many of you have welcomed me with open arms which has meant the world to me. I will never forget your kindnesses or your friendship to me those things will stay with me forever. I will miss you all very much which I will find it hard to say good-bye before the end. I don't know what I will do when I will leave J-Land. I can say that J-Land has been another kind of home for me. I have come to know so many of you that I don't know what it will be like not to come to J-Land.


If you don't hear from me it is because I am no longer home at J-Land. I am sorry that I didn't get to visit many journals I heard of.

Take care everyone...........Good-night.

One Of My Favorite Things........

Hello Dear World.....

How are you ??? How was your day ? If I didn't tell you before my family and I have a pop-up camper which we take camping with us quite a bit. We have been camping at different campgrounds at different times of the year. We always love going to campgrounds we haven't been to before. I especially love getting out on the road and seeing places I have never seen before. Today we opened up the camper and cleaned it out mainly because we haven't been camping in a while.

As I might have told you before its Springtime here in Atlanta, Georgia which means tons of pollen. There's quite a few bees and butterflies in the yard which is nice but the yard is soaked in pollen which makes it hard being outdoors. I would love if Spring came without pollen but I guess Springtime wouldn't be the same without it. When you watch the bees flying around the plants it looks like they are quite intoxicated. I think that there should be a law created by law enforcement against insects called ( FUI ) or otherwise called Flying Under the Influence............ha ha ha ha that was my attempt at humor.

Dear world.........My dear friends it will be hard to leave you all when I am no longer with you at AOL. I will hate to say goodbye when the time comes for me to go. You can still contact me at though I'm sure it won't be the same. I have come to think of J-Land as my second home and I have come to make many friends and I have come to love commenting to you my dear friends. I will miss you more than you know. I will remember you............

Your friend,

My Saturday......

Hello Dear World.....

Today I had a pretty wonderful day. My day began with doughnuts from my favorite doughnut shop otherwise known as Krispy Kreme. After doughnuts I went back to bed and fell asleep. After I woke up my folks and I took a ride down to the DeKalb Farmers Market which is the next best thing to going to a foreign country.

At the market you see people from all nationalities and you can see and buy foods from all over the world such as India, Thailand, France and a whole lot more. They had some nice looking guys there from parts of the world I have never been to.One of the guys was looking at me and smiling at me like I was the prettiest woman in the world I guess to him I was. He was smiling at me like I was a $50 dollar bill. I don't know where he was from but you could tell he was from a foreign country but he was a pretty nice looking guy. I'm sure its highly possible that he spoke a foreign language although I didn't go up and speak to him. Of course I've never walked up to a guy and made conversation.

Also at the market there is a dessert called a Gelato which is creamier than regular ice-cream. I bought me one of the Gelato's which was pretty great. Here is a little note: Italy is the birth place of the Gelato. If you ever go to such a place as I did buy yourself a cup and give it a taste you will like it. I would move to Italy just for the Gelato. What is Gelato ?

( Gelato ) is an Italian frozen dessert made from milk ( or also soy milk ) and sugar, combined with other flavourings. I learned that today.

I can say with certainty that going to the DeKalb Farmers Market is a real adventure and there's plenty to see and lots of food that anyone would want to try. I like going there and buying food that I have never had before. I hope you get a chance to experience such a place as the one I went to.

By the way have you ever been to such a place ????

P.S. Some of you might not know this but I will be leaving J-Land pretty soon which I am sad to report. I will miss you all I have come to love many of your journals and friendship you know who you are..........I have been a fan of many of your journals as well and you also know who you are. My new e-mail address is as follows :

If you wish to contact me you can send me a note at that address. I would also enjoy your letters and kind words. I will certainly miss you all. J-Land was a 2nd home to me which will make it hard for me when my time with AOL comes to an end. I love you all..........

Your friend,

Leaving AOL........

Hello Dear World........

I have some rather sad news....Pretty soon I won't be at AOL anymore. I will be moving to Bellsouth. I wanted to give you all my new address at Bellsouth so here it is --------------->

If you would please send your comments and e-mails to me at that address in the future I would appreciate that kindly. I am sad to think that I won't be at AOL Journals much longer. My service with AOL is about to come to an end. I hope that I will be able to still talk to you my dear friends at my new address.

I will miss you all and I have treasured your kindnesses so much. For now I am at AOL but not for long. I will find it hard to leave but I have to be moving to Bellsouth. I love you all and have come to treasure our chats, sharing journals and getting to know one another. This is sad to say but I will probably not be with you much longer.

Filled with tears........

Hello Dear World......

How have you been ??? I know its been a while since I came and talked to you. Forgive me for the long gap in communicating. After going to funerals I needed a little time to rest.

Anyway......In the last few days many people at my job have been complimenting me on my haircut telling me how beautiful it was and how nice it looked which made me feel really good. I got to thinking about the book " Metamorphosis " which was written by the writer Franz Kafka. No I didn't wake up a cockroach or some other insect but I feel like I am going through a kind of metamorphosis of my own. A while ago I suffered from depression but in these last few months I have felt really great.

I used to watch a show on television called " My so-called Life " which was a really great television show. Claire Danes played a character named Angela Chase. Here is the link ----------> . I found a little part in the book which says --

" That when you really look closely ? People are so strange and so complicated that they're actually.......beautiful.

Possibly even me."

I think that's a great part in the book. What do you think dear world ??

My Sunday......

Hello Dear World..........

How was your Sunday ? I am happy to report that both me and the weather are doing fine. Here's what I did today : Earlier my family and I watched " King Kong " which we rented from Blockbuster. I have to say that despite the really huge bugs and the dinosaurs it was a pretty decent movie overall. The ending was kind of sad though.

Later on my mother , nieces and I went to Walmart which is always fun. Remember my coworker I told you about D____ whose husband passed away recently. Well tomorrow her husband's funeral is tomorrow. I bought a pretty nice outfit for the occasion. I bought a aquamarine colored shirt with a pair of nice black dress pants and I have a necklace to go with it.

I guess that's about it for now. I will talk to you again soon...........Good-night

Hello Dear World.....

Good evening. Its later in the evening and I wanted to share a little more news with you. Once we arrived home from " La Parrilla " we saw 2 movies which were rented from Blockbuster. One of the movies was called " A History Of Violence " with Viggo Mortenson, Maria Bello, Ed Harris and William Hurt. The movie was really great. It was filled with lots of exciting twists and turns from start to finish. I really enjoyed the movie. I would like to rent it again just so I can see it again. Perhaps I will buy the movie so I can see it whenever I want.

During the movie I ate some new ice cream I bought called Irish Bliss which is Irish cream coffee flavored ice cream with Irish vanilla cream and rich chocolate cookies. In my opinion the ice cream was a little too sweet with the coffe flavor and the Irish cream. I don't think that I will buy that flavor of ice cream again.

After the movie " A History of Violence " we saw another movie called " Derailed " with Clive Owen, Jennifer Aniston, XZIBIT and RZA. I have to say in all honesty that the movie was rather awful. By the middle the movie got rather silly and I was glad to see the end of the movie. I can say that Clive Owen is a rather nice looking guy and so is XZIBIT. I can't say that " Derailed " was my favorite movie.

I can also say that the weather here has been wonderful. Its been nice to be out in this weather. The wind was cool and the sky was a perfect shade of blue. Despite the pollen the weather is great. I hope that the weather tomorrow will be just as nice.

How was your Saturday dear world ?????

Good- night.

My Saturday....

Hello Dear World......

How are you today ? I am happy to report that I am feeling much better today. Thank you all for your kind words and condolences I appreciate all of your kindnesses. Let me tell you how my day has been. Earlier this morning I went to a hair salon here in Georgia called " Hair Cuttery " which has great hair stylists let me tell you. I spent the morning getting my hair done which hasn't been done in quite a while. My hair style is nice its got blonde chunks and its cut in layers which I like. It took a while but it turned out beautifully. Next time I go back I will get a little bit more cut off its still pretty long. The blonde looks good and the rest of it is a dark brown color. The hair stylist did my hair quite wonderfully.

After I got my hair done my folks and I went out to eat at a Mexican restaurant called " La Parrilla " which has some of the best Mexican food here in Georgia. We like to go there a lot because it is so good.

Let me tell you the weather has been quite nice. Spring is definitely here and everything is blooming. There is a lot of color in the trees from shades of green, orange, yellow and brown. I like this time of year but the only part of Spring I don't like is the pollen. The pollen is dreadful it makes your throat hurt, your eyes burn and your sneezing constantly. Thank goodness for allergy medication. But the weather is nice and the wind is cool. It was time for the freezing winter chill to take a vacation for a while. I can't wait for Summertime that is another great time of year.

Do you like Springtime dear world ????? I will talk to you later. As you can tell I am feeling much better so thanks for everything dear world........Take care.
