The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of a attitude on life. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill. It will make or break a company... a school... a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past...We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one thing we have, and that is our attitude... I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it" Chuck Swindoll

Hello Everyone: Rihanna and Chris Brown's dysfunctional relationship provoked me to share my views. Violence from anybody is bad news! I believe people insist on ignoring the warning signs of abuse. There is usually warning before destruction. It usually starts with verbal abuse. When name calling is not nipped in the bud it usually escalates into physical abuse. People are stating this is not the first time Rihanna has been in a physical altercation with Chris. There are also allegations that Rihanna hit Chris first. Fact: Rihanna has bruises Chris doesn't. I feel it should be court ordered that Rihanna undergo psychiatric counseling so that hopefully she won't get involved in anymore abusive relationships. The latest is that Rihanna has reconciled with her abuser. A lack of self worth and no family support are obviously missing in Rihanna's life. Furthermore, I feel she needs to spend some time alone to heal mentally and physically to restore self love. Self preservation is number one! Rihanna is 21 but 10 years from now she will be 31. She would be wise to break this cycle now so that these types of relationships do not evolve into later years of more of the same domestic violence. Lastly, Get to know the person by asking personal questions. Find out if you have common interests. Most importantly, show maturity by being honest and telling the person you are interested in what you expect in your relationship so that there is no confusion. Always have respect for yourself! Self Love should always be priority "A", so let's all remember that any time we find ourselves in a combative environment. Thanks for listening! Jennifer

In this time of such great turmoil in our country and in the world it is extremely important that we all keep the faith. It will carry you through. This is a prayer my friend Shirley Young gave me several years ago and she told me to say this prayer every morning until our Lord Jesus comes. Dear God in your heaven, give me the strength to live through this day and
Glorify your name, shield me from my enemies and arm me with your abundant Grace that I may Live to see the coming of your Begotten Son Amen.
Our Lord Jesus is there for all of us and we need him now like we have never needed him before. May our Lord Bless each and every one. Mrs. Wuthrich

A New Beginning

My son Joseph is 46 years old and for the last 32 years his behavior towards me has been abusive. He is now in a rehabilitation program and he wants to change his life especially his treatment of me his mother. He wrote me a letter pledging to do just that. Here is Joseph's letter to me. I pray this will help others who are going through difficulties with their children.

SUNDAY 1:50 p.m. February 1, 2009 I Joseph A. Harris Jr. am pledging to my mom to no longer be a loser. To no longer act like my father Joseph A. Harris Sr. The person that abused her, who I follow after. I pledge to my mom, Tomacina Wuthrich that I will behave and follow in the footsteps of my stepdad, Clyde George Wuthrich, whom I love with all my heart. I truly love my mom, and I pledge to her that I will behave like I should. Thank You JOSEPH ANDREW HARRIS JR.

HERE IS THE PICTURE: My name is Jennifer Angelique. I am Tomacina's baby daughter. I will be officiating as the new technician of the "Blog." We are back at work blogging after 2 and half months leave. Thank you all for your patience and devotion.

Christ Strengthens Me:
I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me. The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, and caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs. But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, and a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success. Pass it on to people whom you want to see blessed!

Whatever things are pure,

Whatever things are lovely,

Whatever things are of good report,

if there is any virtue, and if

there is anything praiseworthy-

meditate on these things.

Rear View Mirror

A published poem by Ms. Karen Kearney

Looking in your rearview mirror

Who is it that you see?

A reflection of times gone past

Or of that someone you want to be.

What do you do when the past is gone

And you can't go back any more,

What mistakes you now cannot change

To go back to the time before?

Somewhere there is a place

For anyone who cares

Maybe that someone is you

Somehow you'll find the answer

You need

Some way you can make it through.

Hold on to what is good

And throw the rest away

Life is taking the chance

Of what you do and say.

Tuesday November 5, 2008 is Election Day!
The good citizens of America, good ole U.S. of A, will be electing a President that will serve 4 years in our nation's capital, Washington D.C. We will also be voting on propositions and other candidates running for public office. It is very important that we vote. There are some pressing issues facing us Americans at this time and we need qualified people in office. If we do not vote we are subject to get in office those people that are not qualified and people in public office that are not qualified to do the job will get us in serious trouble. A war is serious trouble. Financial Depression is serious trouble. At the present time we are in two wars and we are in a recession so serious it borders on a Depression. We need everyone to cast a vote not only in this election, we need everyone to cast a vote in every election. Schools are being closed and teachers, teachers of all people, are being given pink slips. A pink slip means you are FIRED! Imagine teachers are being fired because we have no money to pay them to teach our children. Who then is going to teach the children? Someone in office is not qualified for the job they were elected to and this is what happens. We need everyone to vote. Read the candidates qualifications and what issues he or she plans to tackle and solve. Be an informed voter! We do not want to be in one war, not to mention two. We do not want our teachers fired and our schools closed (What happened to the Lotto Money that was supposed to aid schools?)
We do not want our jobs sent overseas. We do not want to experience a recession bordering on a depression. We do not want our homes foreclosed on because bankers got greedy. We do not want perpetual crime in our streets. We do not want citizens over 65 having to return to the work force because their savings got caught up in the so-called financial meltdown. We want financial stability in our government and in our homes. We want every homeless person that wants a home to have a home. We want our merchandise manufactured here in the good ole U.S. of A so there will be an abundance of jobs. We want qualified, dedicated, honest and moral people as elected officials. We can have these things if, and only if, we vote and vote for the person that will do the job to the best of their ability and they are qualified to do the job and do the job right! It is ok for a person in public office to have advisers as long as the advisers do not have the last say, that is the sole responsibility of the elected official. The buck stops with him or her. Please vote. Those of you that have already voted, "Thank you very much", and those that are still uncertain you have three days to review all the information that is available to registered voters. May our Lord Bless you all and may he also Bless America.

Home Remedies

Often times when we become ill or just not feeling our usual perky selves - we fail to realize we have remedies right in our own kitchen or bathroom we can take to make us all better again. What works for headaches, colds, back aches, insomnia, high blood pressure and even constipation to name a few, can literally be found in our kitchen cupboard.
Most of us have lemons in our refrigerator and honey in our cupboard. A cup of hot tea with lemon and honey does wonders for a troublesome cold. The hot water in the tea opens up the nasal passage allowing for easier breathing through our nose. The lemon has vitamin C which we need to fight the cold. An apple a day will keep the Dr. away or so the saying goes. Actually apples have pectin in them and this helps keep the blood pressure from going through the roof. Pears and plums really help prevent constipation. Do exercise before you go to bed. After a good work-out and hot shower there is nothing better than a good night's sleep. Works wonders for insomnia. Headaches are usually a sign of eye strain (new glasses needed) or hypertension (high blood pressure). For eye strain, until you see the opthamologist, try cool slices of cucumber on closed eyes in a shaded room; lie down and listen to soft music. There is also help for hypertension. Also for hypertension try an apple and cut up a clove of garlic and put it in a bottle of water. Chill the water and drink. Garlic water is excellent for high blood pressure and it tastes very good.
For garlic breath, gargle with lemon juice and water. Leaves the breath smelling "lemony".
Got a backache? Get in a tub of comfortably hot water and Arm & Hammer baking soda. Also add dishwashing liquid to create a bubble bath and soak for 20 to 30 minutes. Voila! Backache gone.
Baking soda or regular table salt is great to use to brush teeth with. There is nothing like good old fashioned bed rest. At least 6 hours to 8 hours a night. The reason most of us are prone to get sick a lot is we don't get enough rest.
Rest - Rest - Rest. Slow Down. Don't go so fast. Your body will thank you! You will look younger and feel fantastic. Keep stressful activity down to a bare minimum. Eat vegetables - they are good tasting and good for you. Drink lots of water and please get plenty of rest.
Live Happy - Live Healthy. God Bless.

Title: The Best Way to Lower Cholesterol Levels

Author: Thomas Tsai

The autumnal equinox is the time of balance between light and
dark. It marks the first day of the season of autumn. It's also
the season for cultivating eggplant when the south wind brings
the moist air current here in Taiwan.

Eggplant Habitats in Taiwan

Eggplant is a cold-sensitive vegetable that requires a long warm
season for best yields. The annual hottest season, from July
through September, is very suitable for eggplant growth.
Gaoxiong county and Bingdong county are the two main habitats,
approximately compose the 56% productivity. Next is the counties
of Zhanghua and Nantou, which are in the middle area of Taiwan,
approximately composes 29%. Other areas also have cultivations
but few.

Positive and Negative Reviews

Studies of the Institute of Biology of S?o Paulo State
University, Brazil (Instituto de Bioci?ncias of the UNESP de
Botucatu, S?o Paulo) also showed that eggplant is effective in
the treatment of high blood cholesterol hypercholesterolemia. It
can block the formation of free radicals, help control
cholesterol levels and is also a source of folic acid and
potassium. However, some sources, particularly in the natural
health community, state that eggplant can cause or significantly
worsen arthritis and should be avoided by those sensitive to

Vitamin P Helps in Lowering Cholesterol

Scientific experiments showed the result that eggplant contains
Vitamin P amounts to 7200 milligrams per kilogram. Vitamin P,
known as the "permeability vitamin", is the body of the 14
essential vitamins one, can strengthen one's body between the
cell the adhesive power and improve the capillary force, to
reduce the risk of cerebral blood clots, since it lessens the
permeability of the walls of the capillary blood vessels.

In the nutritional therapy, eating the eggplant often not only
has the inhibitory action to senior citizen's angiosclerosis but
also the special function to reduces hypertension and prevent
the capillary bursts. That's the reason why eggplant stands out
in the popular healthy food's vegetables.

The Black Nightshade Element

The modern science also knows eggplant containing "the black
nightshade element" which can suppress tumor multiplication in
the digesting system. Expert in preventing and controlling
cancer suggests cancer patient taking the eggplant as daily
food. The eggplant can also prevent and control the hemoptysis,
age-spots and bad blood sickness. To arthritis patient, it also
has certain effectiveness.

Famous Vegetable in Sui and Tang Dynasties

As a cultivated plant, it is widely used in Taiwanese cuisine.
It is reported that the emperors of Sui and Tang dynasties were
fed specially this edible eggplant. Therefore it has name of the
longevity vegetable and is often described as the king of

How to Cook Healthy

The better way to cook eggplant is cooking it in the rice cooker
or others with steam. Takes it out when it is well-done. Then
mixes it with Jiang Mo, minced green onion, crushed garlic,
sesame oil, vinegar and the sauce oil to make it a delicious
dish that riches in color, sweet smell and taste.

I thank Mr. Tsai for his article contribution on nutrition from the
free website.

Most often than not it takes two paychecks to run today's family budget - Mom's and Dad's. Plus there are a lot of single moms doing the job of two people. Therefore it may not be feasible for mom to stay home, but there are moms that can financially stay home and choose to work outside the home for personal reasons. This article is addressed to any and all moms that can be a full time stay-at-home mom. Stay home. Today's children need parental supervision... around the clock. Recently I viewed a very popular television show and a mom asked the television host and guest what to do about a problem involving her 12 year old son and his 12 year old girlfriend. The problem mom was having is her son showed her a text message his 12 year old girlfriend sent to him wanting to perform oral sex on him. Mom wanted to know if she should inform the mother of the 12 year old girl that her daughter had sent this message to her son. Of course the talk show host and her guests all agreed to tell mom. MOM STAY AT HOME; your child and your children need you at home. Children need QUANTITY TIME! Children need to do chores! Children need sometimes to be told "No"! Children don't need every new toy that comes on the market! Children need to know they are loved! That does not mean bribing them to do homework! Children need consistency! Children need to be taught Respect - Respect for people, property, and to respect themselves. Children need mom to stay home! The job of the day care or babysitter is to make sure you pick-up the same happy, healthy child you left with them. Since 12 year olds are really too old for a babysitter or daycare and they get into more mischief than younger children, they really need mom to stay home. Often times 12 year olds are left home alone because mom thinks a 12 year old is old enough not to get into trouble... Wrong! Girls get pregnant at 12. Boys impregnate girls at 12. Mom please stay home. The children of today definitely need more Quantity Time than the so called Quality time. Quantity Time means more time spent with the children and they desperately need it.
Recently I saw a very popular daytime show and the guest on the show was a mother and her 10 year old son. The mother was attempting to correct their son by talking to him and her son "hauled-off" and slapped her across the face as hard as he could and yelled at her, "now how do you like that?" Mom sat there and did absolutely nothing with a shocked look on her face. He never apologized. This was on national television. Mom stay home. Every mom is not financially able to stay home and raise her children and more to the point not every mom wants to stay home and raise her children. Children need structure, discipline and nurturing. They need moms to stay home and raise them properly. Children of today become the adults of tomorrow - The President, our doctor, our lawyer, our nurse, our accountant and our employer. Think about...Please comment and I will print all comments... Thank you and have a good evening.
