Hi all
 
Busy as a little bee
But did you think I'd forget poetry
I only have a few minutes to write
Because the sun is shining so bright
It seems I work all night
Long hours with no daylight
I start at two and home by two
House is quiet when I take off my shoe
I wake up and everyone is gone for the day
I have breakfast make a big lunch and off and away
I go for another day
Maybe 'll see my family on saturday...
 
Have a great week
I'l try and stop in when I can
 
Healthy

Ol' Bobby is usually here but on occassion the boy gets distracted and doesn't make it in. We always keep the cupboards well stocked so some morning we have to fend for ourselves.
 
  I like parties, but I don't like piñatas because the piñata promotes violence against flamboyant animals. Hey, there's a donkey with some pizzazz. Let's kick its ass. What I'm trying to say is, don't make the same Halloween costume mistake that I did.
 
I wrapped my Christmas presents early this year, but I used the wrong paper. See, the paper I used said "Happy Birthday" on it. I didn't want to waste it so I just wrote "Jesus" on it.
 
'Sort of' is such a harmless thing to say... sort of. It's just a filler. Sort of... it doesn't really mean anything. But after certain things, sort of means everything. Like... after "I love you"... or "You're going to live"... or "It's a boy!"
 
I like video games, but they're really violent. I'd like to play a video game where you help the people who were shot in all the other games. It'd be called 'Really Busy Hospital.'
 
I went into a clothes store and a lady came up to me and said "if you need anything, I'm Jill". I've never met anyone with a conditional identity before.

Sorry I'm late, but here ya go Penny :-)
 
So, comedy day
 
Here's a couple from Readers Digest - Laughter, The Best Medicine.
 

To help our four-year-old daughter overcome her fear of the dark, her father and I always reassured her at bedtime that God is always watching over her. One night after I had gone to bed, I felt a soft tap on my shoulder. “Mommy,” a familiar voice spoke up, “I know God’s in there with me, but I need somebody with skin.”

A rare-book collector met a guy who said he’d just thrown out an old Bible that had been packed away for generations. “Somebody named Gutten-something had printed it,” the man explained.

“Not Gutenberg!” gasped the book lover. “You’ve just thrown away one of the most famous books ever printed. One copy recently sold at auction for over $4 million!”

The other man was still unmoved. “My copy wouldn’t have brought a dime,” he said. “Some guy named Martin Luther scribbled notes all over it.”

Comedy day in the club so got a joke to tell leave on and if you need a laugh stop by and get one. Laughter helps so much when quitting so take a minute to leave a joke or two (keep it clean) for others. Peace

For me the most incredible thing is we can feel what smoking is doing to us yet we seem to find a way to justify it in our own mind. Can't go up a flight of stairs without breathing hard becomes something we just accept we can't do. Exercising, playing with the kids, sports, riding a bike if we can't do them well that is OK. Rather have that smoke and well will quiit one day.
 
 Now that I have quit what I took for granted I could not do I am now doing again. I no longer have to stop and say no way can I do that. Where I walk my dog there is a section that is two paths where on goes across the top and the other goes up and down hills to get to the same location. Use to always take the easy road but now I can do the up and down hills and get to the top and not be out of breath. When I was a smoker I tried it throughout had to stop and rest to catch my breath.
 
 There are no downsides to quitting. Does it guarantee you will never get sick or may still develop a smoking related illness. No it doesn't as we have seen. But do you think by continuing to smoke it is keeping that illness away and if I stop then I will get it.Your body, if it does happen, will be in a better position to fight if it is smoke free but also one has to look at the percentage who quit and how many years later get a disease associated with smoking. For me I will play the odds and choose quitting.

Okay benefits of quitting smoking - wow there are so many.  Being able to take a deep breath and feeling the air going all the way to the bottom of your lungs.  Feeling the celia(little hairs) in your nose go back and forth when you breath and just the fact that we can breath through our noses at all. Lying on your back in bed at night in the dark and everything is silent - you do not wheeze any more.  Being able to do sports and not be out of breath.  Oh there are so may good things that happen and all because you stopped putting that little white tube in your mouth.  Life really is incredible if you stop to smell the roses and with that being said may the sun always shine of all of you my friends HUGGS

Penny i can not believe my eyes as i have been making that same salad for years and i do not care if it is summer or winter i just love this salad.  I think it may be the curry that i crave as i do love curry powder on most everything.  Thanks for the memory and i do think this weekend i will make some.  For some strange idea this salad goes well with a side of low fat 1% cottage cheese

Health and fitness? great idea...recipes welcome? Ok I just made this yesturday and I love it. The original recipe is for white rice but I use brown and I only use 1/2 the oil called for. It's great with BBQ. Rice Salad.....2 1/2 cups un-cooked rice (cooked) or 1 cup long grain rice...11/2 cup un-cooked frozen peas...1tin small shrimp drained...8 green onions. Chopped..1 cup of celery chopped..... Sauce...1/2 cup veg oil (I use 1/4 cup) 1 tbsp soya sauce...3 tbsp vinegar...1/2 tbsp white sugar...1/2 tbsp curry powder...1/2 tsp accent...1tsp salt. Put sauce ingredients in jar and shake. Place cooked rice, peas, shrimp, onions and celery in bowl pour sauce over it and mix. It's great. Brown rice is better for you than white rice.
