In Wake of Recent Events.....

Hello everyone

Good evening everyone. How is everyone today ? Some of you may be off watching football but I am not. My New Orleans Saints are not playing so I am not watching football. I do have some different things to talk of tonight. I have to warn you that what I am about to say that some of you may or may not agree with. I am about to voice my opinion on what happened in Tucson, Arizona. If you do not want to read this I am okay with that and you may feel free to stop reading at this moment. However please do know that even Mattie Stepanek was pretty interested in what happened in the world and so do I.

There was a shooting recently in Tucson, Arizona which killed and injured people. What happened in Tucson was a terrible tragedy. People are wanting to point the finger and place blame. A lot of people are wanting to know why. It could have been that the shooter had mental problems or that he was mad at someone. The thing is why he did it does not matter and it won't be considered by the legal system because it does not matter one way or the other. What does matter is that what happened that day, it happened. We do need to have much stricter gun laws and they need to be enforced. Weapons like that of handguns, rifles, knives and ammunition should not be easily accessible to just anyone.

I hate sounding like some politician running for office. I do not want to be in charge of making laws or writing such laws. I wouldn't want anything I say or opinion I have to be placed in the hands of someone that might want to put me in charge. I think that we need to stop pointing the finger. If we need to do so people should consider writing to their Congressmen and voice their displeasure over random acts of violence. I support our President Barack Obama for the speech he made in Tucson, Arizona. We have to give him credit where credit is due. He spoke not only for the victims but for the families and everyone in Tucson during a horrible time.

I just think that it is time to reflect on recent events with an open mind. We all need to stop and take the time to understand that it was not the gun's fault for what happened because guns do not shoot themselves. People need to take responsibility for their actions. It is understandable that people are mad about what happened but pointing the finger is not going to change what happened in Arizona. I think that everything that happened is terrible and I wish that it would not have happened but it did. I know that my opinion may not be liked by some but we all have to find a way to get through our feelings.

I just wanted to share my thoughts and opinions on the tragedy. I hope that you will all know that I will return to my regular scheduled programming of talking about my life at a later date. Thanks for listening everyone and take care everyone.

We Survived The Snow Blizzard....

Hello everyone

Good evening my dear world. How is everyone these days ? I hope you are all well. If you have been watching the news lately you might have heard what went on in my neighborhood. We recently were hit by a snow blizzard...yes a snow blizzard. It was bad and we are still dealing with the ice. On Tuesday my dad and my niece Jeanette went went walking to the Kroger near our house. The reason they had to walk is because nobody could drive with the icy roads. It was slippery as they went walking to the store. Someone gave them a ride on their way back from the store.

They ended up bringing back my mom and I some sandwiches since we had not eaten. My dad started baking like crazy. He was baking cookies, pudding and creme brulee. I could not eat all of that because I would have popped like a over inflated balloon. It was like the North Pole had exploded in our kitchen. There was food everywhere that he made.

Anywho...I had to head back to work today since my work was closed recently due to the weather. I have to tell you something that might just make you laugh out loud. When I got home our driveway is still an ice rink so I went to our grass which I thought was going to be safe but wasn't. My mother and my oldest niece Jeanette were inside the door and I could not walk on the grass with the ice being slippery. I was trying to walk and I failed by just standing on the ice. Well I had my purse and things in my hand and guess what happened next....well I had to sit down and literally scoot myself to the porch so I could get to the front door. My mother and my niece were laughing the entire time while I was scooting myself to the porch since walking was a definite hazard to my health. It took me a minute to get to the porch with all of the ice I had to slide on. The ice was quite cold and sharp of course. I found that I was not liking the entire situation but so there it is. I felt like a fish that had slipped out of a bowl and ended up on the floor. Can things have gotten any more funny than that ??? My dear world I am hoping that this ice will melt but it is supposed to be cold again tonight. I say the end of my day was not a fun one my dear world.

So how are things in your part of the world ?? Is the weather the same in your part of the world ? I hope that you got to have a nice day. I am beginning to wonder what tomorrow will be like. I just wanted to share my moment with you. You might find that I this is not true but I have to tell you that it is and I can tell you that sliding on ice is not a fun thing and it is not an experience I want to relive.

That's all for now. I shall talk to you again soon. Do enjoy the rest of your week ahead. Bye for now my dear world.

Update...And Robert Pattinson

Hello everyone

Good evening everyone. How is everyone today ? I am happy to report that my movie "Eclipse" from the Twilight series won as Favorite Movie at the People's Choice Awards.....I am happy it won. You might want to know that Friday night I went and got the movie "Remember Me" with my favorite actor Robert Pattinson. He is totally great in the movie and I really loved the movie. I can't wait to see Breaking Dawn.

In other news there is talk of snow in the forecast. It is terribly cold in my neck of the woods. I guess we might just get some snow. I hope that it will be coming early Monday morning.

At the moment I am reading the book "White Lies" by Jayne Ann Krentz. The book is quite good and I am enjoying reading it. Jayne is a great writer. The book is well worth reading. I highly recommend it as a book to check out whether its a cold evening or a warm evening.

I do have some sad news to report. My catfish that my family and I had in our aquarium died recently as well as our algae eater. My mom bought some goldfish for our aquarium.

So my dear world how are things in your part of the world ? I hope that all is well. I am hoping that you are enjoying the weekend. I hope that you and your loved ones had a wonderful Christmas season. I had a nice one. I do hope that your New Year has been a good one. My family and I are doing fine.

That's all for now. I will talk to you again soon. Do take care everyone. I shall return.
