Go Ahead, Show Off a Little...
Here's the bulletin board/virtual refrigerator door/etc. for showing and telling about accomplishments you're proud of. Your art. Your graduation. Your promotion. The garden you just planted. Your kid's karate trophy. You get the idea...
Well, on October 12, i went on my first boat trip with my wonderful soulmate boyfriend. i caught 2 mahi and 2 wahoo! it was soooo cool! I think i got a my first job since having my daughter and moving away from my old job in a garden center that i loved in sept 2006. it's just the garden center at target. i hate the idea of working for a big corporation, but i have to learn florida plant life before i can move on to the big dogs. i'm going to volunteer at the everglades park in my freetime, to help with knowledge and experience for the mitigation company we hope to star next year. Also, if anyone knows about what types of permits, etc we need to run a mitigation company (um, forgive my lack of a better way to explain, but it's when you go into a residential or businuess property and 'fix' their mistakes of pulling out too many native plants & trees- or helping them to landscape a property w/out breaking the law by removing too much.). so, if anyone knows anthing about this, my bf is much more educated on the matter, but not sure yet about permits & requirements, etc, so i was gonna start doing some research while i'm still 'in-between' jobs. my 3rd boat i'm gonna float is that on november 1st, my baby girl will be 15 months! She was born August 1st, 2006 (i didn't even try, she just happened to come out that day!). i love her with all my heart, and i am damn proud that she's so smart and so very beautiful! happy un-birthday, samantha! Congrats to everyone for doing so many great things! peace & whatnots
Hal R, you're so awesome......just saw your post from Aug, so I'm a little late.
You blew your horn, impressed the heck out of me then left me laughing.
You remind me of Coyote a little bit.........
"There is at least one fine and admirable quality in every person. Find it."
and if handy..."tap the tambourine".
"The sun was screaming, "Hey you!".
Finally got around to reading Jack Kerouac's "On the Road". I took my time and road along with Dean and Sal through the summer. There is just so much going on that a few pages would wear me out. Needed to pace myself with that crowd. I had a great time being a passenger on some outrageous cross-country trips. Met lots of cool people and stopped at some great places along the way. That was my bonus to myself for making it to 50 a couple weeks ago. Next up is Vonnegut's "Timequake". But I'm in no hurry now.
"Where does the time go?"
It was late, it was a long day/week, and I took one look at that munged text, backed out and ran screaming from the keyboard.
is that how you wanted it to look?
and dude, if I can blow *my* own horn, I have no doubt you can blow yours.
I tried, and then the editing tools stripped all the linefeeds from your post, and the result wasn't pretty. I am conferring with the tech wizards as to how this problem might be avoided. Meanwhile, we know what you mean, and please say more about your group sometime. Does it have a name?
fuck! another damn typo!!
that should be:
loVe and peace at the end...
can one of the mods edit that, please? then delete this post, please?

and this is only NorthWorst, I am also frequent with thai Air, United, JAL, etc. etc.
but seriously folks, one reason I travel so much is to do fundraising and charity work, trying to balance the books - so to speak, in the world. Taking money from the rich and giving it to the poor. Part of our international Robin Hood project that has about 100 hard core members, and about 200 part time members. All things considered, we probably bring in about 200 - 250,000 USD $ every year into impovrished areas and to poverty stricken people in South East Asia, South America, East Europe, Africa, the cariibean, etc. etc.
it is not just giving cash away, but rather trying to help people learn to work for a living, to instill work ethics, providing practical help or tools, essentially helping them out on a grass roots level.
Since this is mainly done by individuals directly with individuals, (rather than through a big giant oraganization) we do not have so many administrative costs -- this means MOST of the money we raise goes directly to 'people who really need help' This ain't no welfare shit, you gotta work for the money. but providing people with the opportunity to work that they will actually get paid for - that is the key. Then, the fact that the people who get help HAVE to share it with others in their local villages... so they will not "keep reaching out their hand", but rather they will become the providers for others themselves.
this is the grateful philosophy of life, to try to keep everyone's cup "full so that it may be again... "
this, for me, is in part to keep that grate karma score in the sky even, since I hustle mooks and suckers at pool... but the only people I hustle can afford to lose the money. ( -:
by the by, if you think YOU need money, ask yourself if you have ever gone to bed hungry because you had no food and no money, no way to grow food or earn money? then, ask yourself if you have ever gone to bed hungry because you and no one in your village had no food and no money, no way to grow food or earn money most of your life? that is the level of poverty stricken people I am talking about.
love and peace.
