Halloween! BOO!

Hallowing Friday and Happy Halloween to everyone! Ah the end of the week and round one of going to an Elks Lodge is done. Tonight will be round 2 and 3.

Last night was rather nice and touching. The boys that were graduating were all great young men. These are men that were heading in the wrong direction, had they continued they would be another number in the jail system or worse. Instead, they did this program GOT IT and are on the right path. One of the requirements for graduating the program is to write and read a speech about your experience and what you have learned from it. Well it was touching one young man was nearly in tears. Here is a 17 year old who by looking at him physically you may run the other way and is there crying. Why? Well he realized what he put his mom through, he realized she was struggling herself and having to worry about him was not helping. He apologized to his mother and said he will never put her through that again. He had to stop a few times to catch himself from shedding more tears. It was truly nice to see.

Another young man also told his mom he was sorry and that he learned that he wanted to make a difference in the world and wanted to help people. One of the course they teach you in the program is CPR and this young man realized he wants to save lives. He said he wanted to finish school, go to college, medical school and become a doctor. He knew it would not be easy but he wanted to do this and one day he would buy his mom a house in the mountains so she can be happy and a way of saying thank you for standing by me and I am sorry for what I put you through.

What a truly magical night it was. 3 of the officers and 2 trustees were there and we all sat together and just smiled and thought yeah this is why we do what we do. It will be nice to sit with these same friends tonight, have a nice steak dinner, laugh, and talk.

Then after that get in the car head 5 miles down the road to yes another Elks Lodge. (no Elk lodges are not normally that close together especially in Miami but we are SPECIAL that way).

Miami Lodge 948 is having a Halloween Party and while I do not plan on dressing in costume there will be a few friends I enjoy spending time with. I know for the most part it will be a great laughing and smiling night and that is always good for the soul. But what has me intrigued is my Chonga friend Janis has told me she has a "prop" for me? Some sort of costume that I don't have to wear anything for? I don't know either she was rather mysterious so I SO looking forward to seeing what it is. She predicts I will like it. Hey anything for the cause!

Ok here is normally where I write a short little quote but today is not a normal day is it?

Here for Halloweeen Day/Night is a short story..

Finally Healed

By Allison Greene, published Oct 30, 2008

Susan walked down the road in soft silence, a blank stare piercing the darkness before her. She told nobody to smile, because it would keep them healthy and strong. Nobody answered back, why thank you, I will, and Susan felt the emptiness of the world around her begin to thicken, cutting off her last hope for happiness. Susan felt her body pause, testing the darkness for light.

There was none. Susan continued to walk down the street in the thin, pale green gown with which she was coerced to grace her body. The gown reached only to her knees, which was torture to the false princess's modest consciousness. Susan watched her feet step over hard, rocky asphalt as she crossed the intersection to the other corner. She watched her soles bruise and callous from the unyielding stress put upon them. Susan felt her link to reality slip away and knew that nothing could ever retrieve it. Susan's will to live vanished, so she knelt. Her legs were very cold, but Susan no longer cared about physical discomfort. Her body was not worth saving. Susan looked down at her pale hands as they melted. She almost screamed, but it did not hurt. That is, it hurt quite much, but she liked it. Susan knew in her heart, what was left of it, that she was dying. Susan felt a small pain, but it failed to make an idea in her mind to stop letting go. Susan looked up in a last burst of curiosity just before she completely relaxed in death, and she blinked. That was not supposed to be there.

Above her, Susan was met with the image of a young man with sad, gentle eyes. She stared at him for a long time. The man was so sad, but he seemed to be urging her to keep fighting. Susan thought to herself that the man asked something impossible. She knew she was too far gone.

Nevertheless, the man's glow of liberation was alluring. Susan looked at him again for a time, knowing she could never be a part of the splendor he represented. The man's face turned to anguish, and blood flowed from his scalp. His wrists exploded, and his ankles, spraying warm blood over Susan's face. A growing bloodstain marred the man's robes at his chest, and a dark red puddle grew steadily at the man's feet. Susan felt the man's torment and wept, but still refused to get up. The man's agony continued, and his breathing became labored as he progressed toward death.

Susan watched as the shadow of a soldier pointed and laughed, proudly displaying the weapons that produced the man's injuries. It looked like a spear and a hammer. As the soldier grew more visible, Susan saw that it was female, and she thought she recognized her. As Susan stared, her heart leapt into her throat: the soldier was Susan, and she was jeering and taunting the man who, without her realizing it, had outstretched his arms, and was shirtless. At last, Susan realized what was going on.

Susan awoke in the hospital an instant later, knowing she had just met the only one who could save her life. She cried loudly, begging the air for forgiveness. The dream had put a bright fire in Susan's heart, and she knew, deep within, that she was finally healed.

And now my friends Have a great Halloween and

Stay Tuned..

Ghost busters!

Time is a ticking the week is coming to an end the fun-filled round of going to an Elks Lodge begins tonight at 6:00 PM. The good thing is there will be nice friends there and it really is a good thing that is being done for these young men. Tomorrow night will be a purely Party like a rock star night - Elk Style. Then Saturday Charity Ball - Miami 948 Style. I was going to attempt in going out for a late night rendevous with 2 gal pals but they changed their plans so I may stick it out. Sunday Brunch at the Elks? While it would be so nice to see Harry I don't know...lets see how or better said what time I wake up and if the man would like to take me out there. He usually is pretty good about so it is more up to me I suppose.

Well last night I continued reading Twilight and I am more then half way through and I am just on edge. I saw a commercial that the movie will be released Nov. 21 so after reading the book well I am very interested in seeing the movie. Highly recommend it.
I know what you all are waiting for...yes the weather report ...ok if you insist...
Currently it is Mostly Cloudy 75°F/24°C . Tonight Partly cloudy with a 10 percent chance of showers. Lows in the upper 60s. Northeast winds 15 mph.
Here is a local story I enjoyed reading:
Real-Life Ghostbusters Investigate 'Haunted' City Hall
WILTON MANORS, Fla. -- Real-life "ghostbusters" investigated a South Florida city hall commission chamber following years of reports of strange happenings.
Workers at the Wilton Manors City Hall claim they've heard noises and seen movement well after closing time, so they called in the help of the South Florida Ghost Research Team.
"Ghosts are everywhere," said John Carr, a paranormal expert and head of the team. "Whether you believe it or not, they're out there."

Experts used state-of-the-art audio monitors, temperature gauges and still photography overnight Thursday, in search of paranormal activity.
City hall worker Kim Holinko said her co-worker told her about paranormal activity before. "She mentioned there was a spirit in the Commission Chamber," said Holinko. "She didn't seem scared about it, she just said she felt a presence."

Experts believe the ghostly presence may be from a maintenance worker who had his ashes spread throughout the hall.

The building is set to be demolished to make way for a new city hall and police station.
I think the real fun will be after the fact when the building comes down. Who are you going to call? Can anyone say Paranormal State!!

The Votes are in!

The votes are in! These were the final two. Susan and Cloris. John said "they are not necessarily the bottom two." which means they purposely left them to face each other for show-effect. But in the end justice was served and Cloris was sent packing! I totally loved her exit - she sat on the floor and said "I am not leaving!" It was rather funny. She wanted to continue to dress up and play so she said I will continue to dress up and play and you will see me in the audience. Ah ever the true ham she went up to each judge and said I did not take what you said personally I completely understand. Ok so now this means that Susan may be next on the hit parade. Oh dear Lord no not Erica Kane! Am I ready to see her go? Ah NO! Are there others there better dancers then Susan - well yes there are but come on this is Erica Kane a force to be reckoned with!

So next week for the show Edyta will be filling in for Julianne while Julianne recovers from her surgery. The couples will compete in a team competition (3 couples per team) for the judge’s scores and your votes. That should make for an interesting evening.

So stay tune..

The pretty weather continues but today will be the last day. This morning was a very chilling 56! Oh yeah it was pretty darn cold and I love every minute of it! The sad news is that by tomorrow we will be back in the 80's.

But you know that is the price we pay for living in Paradise.

Totally Tuesday

Pretty pretty pretty!! Is all I can say! This morning the weather was a super cool 62!!!! Yes I know 62!! I walked outside this morning and felt that crisp coolness in the air and thought oh boy I could use a jacket but did I? NO of course not I LOVE this weather! As I drove to work I noticed a ton of people with their signs up shouting to VOTE and they all had their jackets some even had scarfs and hats on! I thought oh how South Florida! Gotta love it! OK for those of us that enjoy this change of weather its great. Now for the folks who live here and don't like it - ah shoot don't worry it will be gone by Thursday and the weekend will be hot in the 80's again.

Now DWTS last night was pretty cool. I am ready to bounce Bruno on the head how dare he put down my Susan Lucci! But one thing all 3 judges did was really give negative feedback to Cloris Leachman. They also gave her the lowest score I have ever seen a total of 15. I think they did it mainly so to get her out, even though its the votes that count but the votes are added to the judges to total. So I guess they figure lets make it low. Carrie Ann told Cloris that she was starting to act childish and it was sad that someone like Toni Braxton was eliminated because of it. Well in part I agree I just think it was too harsh to give to her after all its the voters that are keeping her in. With that in mind DON'T VOTE FOR CLORIS LEACHMAN!

In other DWTS news: Two-time Dancing With the Stars champ Julianne Hough is undergoing minor surgery this week to remove her appendix, she revealed on her Web site Monday. Hough, 20, suffers from endometriosis, a painful condition caused by the growth of the tissue lining the uterus in other parts of the abdomen outside of the uterus. It is found in 5-10 percent of women of reproductive age around the world. Hough was first hospitalized at L.A.'s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center last week after experiencing mild stomach pains. After consulting with her doctor, surgery was recommended, she said on her site. For the next week Cody will have a replacement dancer.

So will he still be able to stay on top of the Leader Board? Stay tune..

The week is looking fairly good. This Thursday I have a special program dinner at my Elks Lodge. It's for The Gate Program which is a program started by this angel of mercy Mimi Sutherland for non-violent first time juvenile offenders. The boys in this program are between 12-17 and what they learn is what will be the result of their life if they continue on the path they are in. I am talking about everything from visiting prisons to going to the morgue and seeing an autopsy to talking to visiting senior living facilities. The counselors and teachers are caring and loving. Once the kids go through the program the Lodge gives them and their families a Graduation Dinner. What they have done is now in the past, and, now, its up to them what their futures hold. Some of the peer counselors were in the program at one time and learned so much for the experience that they stayed to teach and guide others. So this Thursday night will be a nice night of celebration.

This Friday I am scheduled to attend not one but 2 Elks lodges. First I will be going to my lodge for Friday Night dinner. I must keep this alive since the 12 of us that go really like each other. Then I am meeting my Chonga and her Mr Wonderful at their Elks Lodge for a Halloween party. And No I am not dressing up I am scary enough as it is.

Oh but wait there is MORE Elk visits! Saturday Night going over to Miami Elks Lodge for their annual Charity Ball. So lets recap: Thursday Elks Lodge, Friday Two Elk Lodges, Saturday Elk Lodge. You think I will be all Elked out by the end of the weekend? I think I will be too.

Welcome to the Fall - Miami Style

Welcome to the start of Earth week! What a great start the weather here has changed! Yeah it is no longer hot, raining and muggy and while its not like the above beautiful picture it is special to me!

Partly sunny. Highs in the lower 80s. North winds 10 to 15 mph.
Mostly ClearLo: 60°
Mostly clear. Breezy...Cooler. Lows near 60. North winds 10 to 15 mph becoming northwest 15 to 20 mph after midnight.

What great news! It is going to get cooler! Currently this morning the wind was blowing slightly and one could sense the change in the air. I looked at the trees and said well hello Mother Nature! Gotta love it!

If you have not done so already remember to vote. On October 20th early voting began and it is a success, I know because the lines are long and people seem to not be minding to wait in it. I for one am not a long line person so I may wait until voting day and be at the station right at 7:00 am like I did last time. That seemed to work out the best in the past. However I may check when leaving work to see what the wait time is if its not too bad I may take a stab at it. The important thing is to get out there and vote. What a great country we live in where our votes count.

Ok this annoucement was paid for by ME.

It's a Funny World

Oh look at this pretty leave. I saw this in a picture and I just could not take my eyes of it. Oh I can hear you all laughing. Its the simple things in life that make me happy.

Oh Friday thank you for finally arriving! Last night was Grey's Anatomy and I must be getting old(er) because I fell asleep in the middle of it so I never got to see the ending arggg.

Tonight is Friday night dinner at the my Elks Lodge. It's Lasagna and good friends. I enjoy going there mainly for the friends more then the food. I expect the usual suspects and I surely hope so or else will I will be disappointed.

Now I read something interesting this morning and I just thought to myself OMG what is this world turning into? Here let me post the story:

Online divorcee jailed after killing virtual hubby
By MARI YAMAGUCHI, Associated Press

TOKYO: A 43-year-old Japanese woman whose sudden divorce in a virtual game world made her so angry that she killed her online husband's digital persona has been arrested on suspicion of hacking, police said Thursday.

The woman, who is jailed on suspicion of illegally accessing a computer and manipulating electronic data, used his identification and password to log onto popular interactive game "Maple Story" to carry out the virtual murder in mid-May, a police official in northern Sapporo said on condition of anonymity, citing department policy.

"I was suddenly divorced, without a word of warning. That made me so angry," the official quoted her as telling investigators and admitting the allegations.

The woman had not plotted any revenge in the real world, the official said.

She has not yet been formally charged, but if convicted could face a prison term of up to five years or a fine up to $5,000.

Players in "Maple Story" raise and manipulate digital images called "avatars" that represent themselves, while engaging in relationships, social activities and fighting against monsters and other obstacles.

The woman used login information she got from the 33-year-old office worker when their characters were happily married, and killed the character. The man complained to police when he discovered that his beloved online avatar was dead.

Ok is that not just silly or what? I know I know some logic minded people out there will say its not that she killed the avatar its that she hacked into the computer. Come on all she did was kill his silly character couldn't he oh I don't know create another one and move on? Personally she should of waited until they were in the game together and then pushed him off his pedestal. But come on a game? You killed my made up character so you are going to jail. That's like creating an imaginary friend and then someone comes and kills it. OK yes I know over the top.

Ok I just thought I would share that humours story.

So what will this weekend bring? I don't know either but

Good Morning Miami!

Another day of great breezy weather in Miami! Yes breezy. It is not hot and humid and last night inbetween the rain there was a tiny coolness in the air. This morning it was very breezy the wind was blowing and singing the trees were swaying. Oh it was a pretty sight. The weatherman tells us that there will be 80-100% chance of rain. Fine ruin my parade.

I took an interesting online quiz this morning which was on which Archangel I am most like. I found my match very interesting - Raphael.

In times of trouble, people look to good luck charms, books of faith, or angels to guard them against further misfortune. The four archangels Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, and Uriel are the most popular guardians for those who pray for help. Each archangel has its own special characteristics.

Hump Day

Ah the middle of the week! Wednesday. It's a beautiful morning in sunny Miami. Ok the sun is just coming out now but the last 2 days were actually nice! Yes I mean it was breezy and slighty and remember I said slightly coolish. I almost felt like I was in a city that had more then one season. Until I was in the elevator at work and someone walks in with a zip lock bag with brown and orange leaves. We all looked at it like WOW - OMG how pretty. Ok for the northern folks you must think HUH? You see in Miami we get 2 colors on our leaves green and dark brown which means its dead. She was visiting one of those States that have seasons and brought back some leaves. You see we don't need no fancy tourist shops we go to the park and pick up leaves. But I have to admit, those leaves looked gorgegous.

Ok on to other news - Dancing With the Stars!
Well after much dancing and singing they finally revealed who was leaving - Toni Braxton has left the building. She actually was getting much better and I think she could of been one of the finalist had she stayed. Cloris Leachman lives another day! Do not get me wrong I like the woman she is funny but I am sorry Toni was much better in dancing then she was. But what do we learn from this? We learn viewers like voters make all the difference! It's the votes that are keeping Cloris in this competition and now she has crossed over the half way mark and is going into the final rounds.

Susan Luccie was in the bottom two and I am so happy she survived! She has got to outlast Cloris is all I say! Erica Kane must rule! Speaking of Erica Kane All My Children was just so freaking good yesterday! Babe should die any day now and of course in typical soap form Daddy dearest David will walk in and find her dead and vow revenge! One must be afraid because David is a mean nasty. But we have Jessie Hubbard in the city now so beware David. But of course Jessie has his own drama to deal with like how to explain to his wife that he has a daughter nearly 20 years old. Ok hello Jessie is this what you did for all those years while you were on the run pretending to be dead? Ah Yeah. Meanwhile Kendall is in the operating room after the tornado made a house fall on her and oh NO wait another tornado this time it rips thru the hospital while Jake the surgeon is operating on her! Ok he is a good surgeon he threw his body over Kendall's and the hospital lost power. Ok what to do in the middle of an operation no power, logic tells you to close up and recoop. Nope this is Super Surgeon Jake he will operate on Kendall in the dark. I wonder if thats why Kendall will end up in a coma - ah you think?

Yes I am back! Finally! When last I left off I was days shy of the Charity Ball I was charged with putting together so I took a couple days of work to go and help put the finishing touches. It never fails the last days are always last minute entries, rushes and prep work. I was at the Elks Lodge pretty much all day and a good portion of the night. Needless to say I was not able to do daily blog entries or Soul Coaching tasks. But now the ball is over, the lights are off and I am able to get back on track with Fire Week and Soul Coaching. I know this is all part of the process I am going to continue to embrace it and see what develops internally.

Ok lets get to the fun stuff DWTS! Last nights show was pretty cool. I still think Susan rocks and Brooke is good but man she better watch out because the stars are catching up to her. Here are some highlights:

Julianne's experiencing some of the same problems her brother Derek had this week with the Jitterbug - she's never taught the Jitterbug before. The judges loved it. Carrie Ann thinks Cody could give Brooke a run for her money, Len liked it very much, and Bruno didn't think it was a Jitterbug, he thought it was high energy FIRE BUG!!! Carrie Ann gives them a TEN! Bruno and Len give Cody and Julianne nines, for a total of 28 out of 30.

Not so bad for "Jitterbug 101" as Brooke calls it. They pulled it off big time, but will they pull into the lead? Yes! Carrie Ann gives them a 10. Len hands out a 9. Bruno punches his fist in the air and roars "TEN!" Wow, 29 out of 30 is the highest score tonight and the highest score of the season. The Brooke and Derek Machine dances on, unstoppable.

Cheryl and Maurice have been having a little friction in rehearsal this week because she's never taught the salsa to anyone before - ballroom is her game. Oooh, Cheryl called Maurice "lazy" to get him to up his game. Ok does she not realize this is a football player who can most likely turn her into a football and throw her for a touchdown? Carrie Ann gives them a 9, Len follows suit with a 9, and Bruno gives them a 9 - 27 out of 30.

21 out of 30 - they got straight sevens, which seems a little high to be honest. Each week Corky gives Cloris a character for their dances, to help her with the performance. This week, Cloris was playing a "skanky ho." Her words, not mine.

Carrie Ann hands out a 7, Len gives them a 7, and Bruno gives them an 8. A decent score for this week. Susan and Tony are competing against Warren and Kym in The Hustle, but this week it turns out that Susan has fractured a bone in her ankle. It's been hard for her to walk this week, let alone dance. Dancing to "Inside Out" Tony and Susan hit the floor in full-on Studio 54 dance wear. Susan's wearing knee high boots for support, but she seems a little hesitant. Oooh, nice lift. She seemed to be warming up a bit, even doing some footwork. Another big lift, ending with a Travolta point. It was pretty good.Carrie Ann liked it OK, Len thought that Tony was treating Susan like a china doll and wanted them to "swing their knickers" so to speak, and Bruno thought she looked like an uptown girl dancing the hustle. "A little precious," Bruno says, "but still a hustle."

Speaking of Susan (AKA Erica Kane) not sure if anyone watches All My Children but it rocked between Cliff Hanger Friday and Yesterday! This week is going to be big! Which is great for watching! Amazing normally these big productions on done during sweeps month - I am loving it. Babe is going to bite the dust this week. Sniffle sniffles bye Babe. But Bianca being Pregnant with Zack's baby???? OMG never saw that coming! I cannot wait to here how that happened. Ok this is a soap they did not make it the old fashion way because Zack is way in love with Kendall who just so happens to be Bianca's sister.

Welcome to Fire Week!

Welcome to a great day in Miami!

Partly Cloudy 77°F 25°C Humidity: 69% Wind: NE at 9 MPH. Highs expected to be in the mid 80's. The sun is shinning right now and its Fire week time to take in all the Sun's energy and connect with the Spirit! Face your fears and take risks.

DWTS Update

Last night we said good bye to Rocco. No surprise there but it was sad to see him leave he has really been trying very hard. His mom was there and you could tell she was so proud of him for even being there. It was nice to see. There is a new show on CBS called the Mentalist that is looking pretty darn good. Just what I need another new show to get hooked on.

Charity Ball is a couple days away I have a list of small To-Do items to do for it. This is good because in the past I am scrambling at this time preparing baskets and running around. Heck last year the Program book was ready on the day of the Ball! This time its already ready and done I just have not gone by the printers to pick it up yet. But I am off from work tomorrow and Friday for these running around things and computer printing stuff but in my ever lazy way if I can do it all before that less for me to do right?

Lessons Learned

Everyday is a journey and an adventure or at least a way to learn something. Yesterday my faith in goodness in the world was refreshed. Also I learned that my journey is working and I am learning from things. I stopped off at a local Walgreens to get some items I needed and some stuff for an upcoming Boss's Day presentation. Ok in my fumbling I managed to drop my small wallet that contained my bank card and credit union card. No cash just those 2 cards. Ok I actually realized this was missing within minutes of it happening (15 or so). So I trotted myself back to the store and I looked where I parked and nope nothing there. Ok I walked to the cashier because that is the last place I had it and she told me no sorry nothing has been turned in. Ok now I am a week bit upset. Ok I will admit it slightly higher then wee bit. I get in my car and start venting out loud (alone) some colorful words BUT just as I was saying these colorful words I stopped myself and said ok this is part of the process. There are lessons to be learned from this. There are ways to handle this and while it may not be fun you can do it and you will be fine. I actually calmed myself down. Way happy about that. Ok now I arrive home and I am there maybe 30 seconds or a minute and I hear a knock on the door I open it and there is this lady there who repeats my name and get this....she is holding my small wallet! YES! She found the wallet and at first she thought it was hers because they looked alike and realized no its not mine saw my address and came to give it to me. Ok this so could of ended so bad but instead my faith in the world has been restored. There are good people out there. After thanking her several times I looked up to the sky and said my thanks. I sat back and reflected on the events and the journey is working. It's all for a reason and I have learned.

Ok DWTS - Awesome! Susan rocked! She brought out Erica Kane and wow it worked so very well. Rocco is hurting. While I thought he improved the judges really did not have much good to say about it him. Of course Cloris they just love. She attempted a "serious" dance and you know what it was good. I saw her actually dancing. But I am sorry IMO - time to go Cloris. Then there is Brooke this woman is going to take this show. She is just incredible. She really dances fantastic and is just good. Tonight we see who will go home. Now for the remaining stars next week is going to be really difficult because they will have 4 dances to learn! Yeah its hard enough learning one then the first week they make them learn a 2nd but 4!! Oh this is for sure a challenge.

Stay tune..

Monday Brings more Water!

Oh Monday and water week continues fully strong! The rain is pouring in Miami - if anyone ever thought it was always sunny in South Florida come down now. It is proving to be a really enlightening journey.

I am also reading Twilight which is a super good Vampire-type novel. The main character Bella is kind of weird some of the things she thinks and does makes one go like huh??? I also do not understand her obsession but thats ok its part of the fun in reading. Although I have to say Edward reminds me Mick St John of Moonlight. Speaking of Moonlight I am way upset with CBS. There seems to be no sign of Moonlight being brought back on air!! Ah HELLO vampire with style and gosh he looks so hot when his fangs come out?? What is wrong with that picture? Nothing if you ask me. I tried to go online to see if I could find something on and when you check the shows section nope Moonlight is no longer even listed. Way upset about that. So right now this book is filling in my need for a Vampire. My BFF Janis hooked me up with this book and it is pretty darn cool.
Tonights DWTS show should be pretty good. Rocco was spared last week because of Misty's sudden departure but will he be spared again this week? I actually hope so and I hope it is Cloris who leaves. Not that I do not like her because I think she is funny and very fun to watch but come on it is a dance competition lets allow the dancers to dance. Does this mean Rocco? Well the man is trying...Cloris bless her heart is trying to entertain people with her comedy. Which I totally like after all I say when I am 82 I hope I am half as fiesty!
General Daily Insight 10/13/2008
The Moon enters feisty Aries at 3:05 am EDT, reminding us that we needn't express everything that we feel. Our reactions to circumstances are swift, yet mature judgment can make the difference between what we say and what we don't. Additionally, an anxious semisquare between logical Mercury and alluring Venus can cloud our decisions by encouraging us to over-personalize what's happening. We are best served by aiming for objectivity in all that we do.
How to Develop Your Angel Wings
As you grow and develop spiritually, you manifest and radiate angel qualities. When this happens you grow angel wings. These do not appear physically, of course, though you may feel pain, tension, tingling, or a sensation behind your shoulders when the energy is starting to gather.
EXERCISE: Meditation for Your Angel Wings
  • Make sure you are in a place where you will be undisturbed.
    If possible, raise the energy with flowers, a candle, appropriate music if you like it and beautiful objects or books.
  • Sit or lie with your back straight.
  • Ground yourself by imagining roots reaching down from your feet into the Earth.
  • Relax and let go of the outside world. Focus on your breathing and when you feel comfortable, stroke your body with your breath from your head down, Imagine each breath is making you feel more relaxed and peaceful.
  • Be aware of your spine and notice from which part your wings unfurl.
  • Let your wings spread out fully. Sense their size, shape, texture and color
    Gently and slowly imagine yourself moving your wings until you can flap them easily.
    Ask your angels to hold your hands and help you to fly out into the sky. Enjoy flying with their support.
  • When you are ready, let go of their hands and fly through the stars. Experience the joy and freedom of your angelic self.
  • Drop golden angel dust on people and places who need it.
  • Return to your body and sit quietly for a few moments.
  • Feel your feet on the Earth and make sure you are grounded.
  • Stretch and open your eyes.
  • Congratulate yourself on receiving your angel wings.

If you can imagine then it is possible. So imagine it - whats the harm?

Sunday Sunday

Oh boy Sunday! I have noticed Saturday and Sunday are the two fastest days. It just goes by so quickly before you know it, well its over and time to return to the wonderful work week. For me this means the week right before the charity ball. I should be really stressed but I am not. I really think I feel good about what we have accomplished. I like how we all get along and try to help each other and now it is just time to hope and pray that members and friends come out and support!

Desperate Housewives is tonight and I for one cannot wait to see what Edi's new husband is going to do. He is a sneaky one gotta love those. I am still hoping Carlos gets his sight back he just has to. I bet the day he does he will catch Gaby in a compromising position like trying to make their daughter exercise or eat a salad instead of Nachos with extra cheese.

DWTS is tomorrow and I hope to see it but honestly I am just not sure if I will be at the Lodge doing last minute prep work. At the same time Hereos is getting really good!

OMG did anyone see Grey's Anatomy? Can anyone explain to me the reason George is still on the show? I just do not see the need for him he tends to bore me a little. But I still love the show...

Water week is going good. Lots of water entries and emotions and yes this is all part of the process. I am liking how I am reacting to stress really good. Must continue on the path. I may do this all over again. I just need to make a spirit stick ...I was never one of those crafty people so this task will take a while and from what I read that is ok.

Ok thats about it for Sunday

Stay tune..

Oh the weekend

Ok its Saturday anything but boring. It seemed to be boring but alas how quickly things change. First of all did anyone catch Ghost Whisperer last night? Ok I am so not into this new character who hears ghosts....yawn...

Saturday is was ho hum...night my little baby boy (20 yeara old) broke down so dad and I went to get him since we have the Triple A Sunday will be a visit to the car shop to buy some sort of cheap car. This one is DOA.

Ok for the sports fans....University of Miami won! Go Canes!
And Gators are currently winning.

Will Sunday be a lazy day?

I love Fridays

Don't you just love Fridays? I do because it means tomorrow I get to sleep in! I love sleeping in. Last night we went out to dinner with "Mother" and Martin and it was really nice. We went to Scully's Tavern at 9809 SW 72ND St. This place is just great. Yes, this is the pub featured in Guy Fieri's "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives" on The Food Network where they showcased its encrusted dolphin sandwich and scampi chicken wings. Yum Yum is all I have to say.

The water week continues and yesterday there was plenty of water in Miami. Thank you Goddess of water for cleaning everything out and leaving room for sunshine and clearness.

I am continuing to think positive thoughts and know that things are happening for a reason and all will be fine. The weekend is looking to be peaceful and restful - yeah right! Thats about all I have for today or now anyway.

I am moving into harmony with everyone and everything in my universe.

Happy Thursday!

Happy Thursday!

You know the economy sucks doesn't it? Yeah even in Florida. This morning I was reading how California is hurting and the Governator is ready to ask the Federal Government for mo money in order to save the State. Well California is not the only one hurting:

FloridaBudget gap (as a % of the total budget): 19.9%Gap: $5.1 billion
The Florida housing slump is one of the worst in the nation and only appears to be getting worse. The $66 billion Florida budget for the coming year is about $6 billion less than the one approved the previous year. It includes a $332 million reduction in public school spending and cuts to state hospitals, nursing homes, and various social programs.

I can tell you schools are hurting here locally. There have been a ton of great school programs that have been cut due to "budget" cut backs. I work in a place where we have our own public school on the company grounds and they too have been hurt. Teachers have lost their jobs and classes combined because there is no money to pay for 2 teachers, so, instead they want to combine students into one class and yeah so what if its a little crowded. Those little kids won't mind. Gotta love it huh?

Daily Horoscope forAll Zodiac Signs

Thursday, Oct 9th, 2008 -- The intelligent Aquarius Moon is strengthened today by trines to mental Mercury and the Sun. But passions run deep because the Sun forms a magical quintile with powerful Pluto, enabling us to transform the mysteries of the unknown into creations of beauty. Additionally, sweet Venus moves toward a harmonious trine with eccentric Uranus, encouraging us to set traditional desires aside as we move toward more unconventional expressions of love.

Tonight is Grey's Anatomy and Ugly Betty, if you have not seen either you should it is a hoot. One is kind of silly funny and the other makes you say to yourself "Let's hope they really are not doing that in real life."

The quest on Soul Coaching continues....all is going well. So far I am very happy to have begun this book. I think I need to do some wish casting and if anyone cares to join me please do so I need all the help I can get.... Please someone buy my mom's house before we lose the house! Taxes are (including now tacked in additional property taxes) are due in a month and I have no idea how we will pay them! Ok so my wish casting is for someone to come in and save the day and buy the house. Please wish for me.... Hey if you don't ask you don't receive right?

I know what you are now thinking....hello what's the weather like in sunny Florida? Oh glad you ask. Actually it's pretty "ironic" that the 2nd phase in Soul Coaching is dedicated to water because this morning I woke up to a nice set of showers. The streets are wet and clear of debris and the day is ready for a fresh new start.

Currently: Rain
Wind: at 7 MPH11 KPH
Humidity: 84%
Dewpoint: 73°F22°C
Barometer: 29.93 inches
Heat Index: 82°F27°C
Sunrise: 7:17 am
Sunset: 6:59 pm

Today: partly sunny. Chance of showers and thunderstorms. Highs in the upper 80s. Southeast winds 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 40 percent. Tonight: partly cloudy with a 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Lows in the upper 70s. Southeast winds 5 mph.

The weekend is almost here! The Charity Ball I am planning for the Elks Lodge will take place on October 18th which means right now I am on "whatever happens happens I did the best I can do." I decided that I am going to continue to look at the glass as half full. Will everything go perfect? No it will not and you know what - so what. Will there be error-free stuff guess what no there will not be and again - so what. The few of us at the Lodge that have worked on this all feel we did the best we can and with no fighting and bickering. We will leave that for the After-Party! I am thinking that after the party of having a Wii Bowling mini-tournament! Yeah it's the simple things in life that make me happy.

Hump Day

DWTS Update:

Misty May-Treanor has had to drop out due to injury, so the remaining stars get a one-week reprieve. Rocco can thank his lucky Garlic for that because otherwise he would of been the one to go home. So butch up Rocco! The judges' scores and votes from this week will be rolled over into next week, so the Rocco will have a huge hill to climb.

Well the first week of Soul Coaching has been completed! Lots of decluttering and mental clearing too. The air above me is clean and fresh and ready for week two which is water. Can't wait!

The week ahead is a fairly uneventful one. Child of mine is having tooth implant procedure done on Friday. As he puts its he will finally get his smile back. Saturday and Sunday appear to be lazy days in....remember what happened the last time I said that....lets hope its not a repeat offender. But not surprised if it would be.

Desperate Housewives is looking really good. They have this new character who looks very evil. Just not a nice guy he took a kitty cat from this old lady in order to get her to apologize to Edi. Now what kind of monster would take a innocent kitty? BTW the cat looked so much like my Paradise so you know I was like a Momma Bear growling at the dude.

Tuesday, October 7, 2008

Ah another beautiful Tuesday in Miami. The sun is shinning bright as is the norm. It is not as humid it is a warm 80 degrees. Also today there is a Chance of showers and thunderstorms. Highs in the upper 80s. East winds 5 to 10 mph becoming 10 to 15 mph in the afternoon. Chance of rain 50 percent. Tonight: partly cloudy with a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Lows in the upper 70s. East winds 10 to 15 mph.

Ok so last night was Dancing With the Stars and the curse of who will drop out continues. No a star was not eliminated because he or she got low scores instead it was due to no fault of their own. Brooke Burke confirmed Monday that injured Misty May-Treanor will be sitting out for good. She hurt her Achilles tendon and was in a cast. She will be having surgery to fix this so of course this means she is out for a very long time. This is sad because this girl looked good. Now who is still dancing Cloris Leachman. Yeah I know there is always one that seems to skate through and makes you go HUH? It's the funny factor folks she is funny but now it's getting to the point where come on let the ones who are really trying to dance dance.

So now a little about some of the remaining dancers and how they did. Read about Susan made me (OH NO!)

Brooke and Derek will stay on top of the leaderboard this week; the judges loved their waltz.Carrie Ann hands out a 9. Len gives them a 10! Unbelievable! Bruno gives them a 9. 28 out of 30 - incredible score.That was the first 10 of the season, and I can't remember the last time Len awarded a 10 to a couple.

Warren and Kym waltz out on to the floor in pink outfits. They're doing a really romantic, smooth, contemporary waltz. Warren is awesome, there is apparently no dance he can't master. He's so light on his feet and really just glides across the floor.Bruno exults, "Big, smooth, and BEAUTIFUL!" Carrie Ann was blown away and has a bit of a crush on Warren and calls it "mind blowing." Len didn't have high expectations, but thought it was really well done. Warren is a big hit with the judges and the crowd. The judges scores: Carrie Ann gives them a 9! Len and Bruno give them 8s. 25 out of 30.

Susan looks super-cute in her polka dot dress. They kick off into a kicky, energetic jive to "Why Do Fools Fall In Love?" Her ankle is bandaged, and Susan does look a little heistant, but the choreography is great and overall it's strong. Len liked it, they're staying consistent from week to week. Bruno is getting distracted by Susan's neckline, but thought they are heading in the right direction. Carrie Ann thought Susan seemed a little bashful. Straight sevens across the board - Susan and Tony score 21 out of 30.

There you have it. Susan was hurt in practice but thankfully lived to dance.

Well Stay tune my friends...Life is still going on strong

It is easy to read about or to talk about love, charity and faith. But to do it, to feel it, almost requires an altered state of consciousness.

No excuses

I know it is so rude! A whole week and no writings. I cannot even explain why. I guess I was concentrating more on Soul Coaching and writing in the Personal Journal and Process Journal rather then blogging. I have to say I am really enjoying Soul Coaching. I can feel a difference in how I react to certain events and how I respond to certain situations. All for the good. A nice learning process.

Right now my motto is "The glass is half full"

I am also reading Twilight which is pretty interesting. It is usually in the young adults section of the book store but it is not just for young adults. Lets just say if you like Vampires then you may like this story. Only at about chapter 9 so still not done with it.

DWTS is not on the back burning I have still been watching it and loving it. Susan Lucci is still in there! I think Brooke will win it all but watch out folks because football players know how to pull it out in the 4th quarter.

Speaking of 4th quarter just one comments GO DOLPHINS!!

Desperate Housewives was so good last night! I can see signs of the old Gaby coming back and I can't wait! This frumpy Gaby is so not cool. And hello Carlos has got to get his eye sight back. Honestly I still can't believe Susan and Mike are not together. Bree...well Bree is Bree...not much change in there.
Ok tonight is DWTS I hope to watch it but not sure I will be at the Elks Lodge interviewing potential bartenders with the committee.
