The Universe and You

The universe is a strange place. When you live a good life without violating the laws of the universe, you or your children will reap the rewards.

My mother is a kind-hearted soul. She treats everyone with respect. Sometimes I’ve witnessed some of those same people whom she has shown kindness treat her bitterly. I get mad sometimes, but I find solace in the fact that her kindness will not go unnoticed. The universe is aware of this and I am receiving her blessings/rewards now.

If you intend to live your life hurting others, remember that your deeds might not affect you, but your children or your grandchildren. Sometimes you might notice that things never go in your favor despite your best efforts. That’s because no bad deed goes unnoticed. The universe is righting a wrong. Some might call it karma. It’s all about balance.

I found the above image on flickr. It was done by Martin Krzywinski.

I had the image of shooting a striptease and removing the body, keeping only items of decoration: clothing and makeup.

I guess I’m trying to convince you that there’s more to a person than the garb they are wearing.


Birthday Dinner

Well this is just an update to my birthday morning post. The wife went all out to prepare dinner. I went on the road and came back to see a culinary masterpiece. She made shrimp scampi, cheddar mashed potatoes and our veggie special (broccoli, string beans, shredded carrots, sweet corn & cauliflower).

What’s so special about birthdays?

What’s so special about birthdays? Isn’t it just another day?

Well, birthdays are a celebration of your life and the people who are apart of it. It marks the day you were conceived. It marks the beginning of a wonderful life journey.

Every year your life is extended. Meaning, new people come into your life – some good and some not so much. You leave a part of yourself (whether positive or negative) with each new person that comes in your life thereby extending your life.

You’ll meet your life partner along the journey as well. You will have the occasional detours along the way, but your life partner was already chosen for you. Everything that happens in your life is a part of the big plan that was set in motion on your birthday.

With that said, TODAY is MY BIRTHDAY 😀

The wife tried to out do me for breakfast. I think she might have won. Shh … don’t let her hear.

Cod-fish Fritters

OMG … I’m stuffed – Verklempt with food 😀

I wonder what dinner will be like. I can’t wait.  Yum Yum.

The Never Ending Meme Pt. 1

Today we ripped off a blogger named Tense Teacher of the blog Tense for a Reason. (Yes we know that we’ve ripped her off not so long ago as well. It’s pretty amazing since she stopped posting in 2007. But that’s where we live as a thief). Also, it’s long so we’ll do it in parts. She does not say where she got it from. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft’s thieves might take some time. Take the time to comment on other player’s posts. It’s a great way to make new friends! Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

Happy Woman’s Day

This Is A Man’s World Lyrics

This is a man’s world, this is a man’s world
But it wouldn’t be nothing, nothing without a woman or a girl

You see, man made the cars to take us over the road
Man made the trains to carry heavy loads
Man made electric light to take us out of the dark
Man made the boat for the water, like Noah made the ark

This is a man’s, a man’s, a man’s world
But it wouldn’t be nothing, nothing without a woman or a girl

Man thinks about a little baby girls and a baby boys
Man makes then happy ’cause man makes them toys
And after man has made everything, everything he can
You know that man makes money to buy from other man

This is a man’s world
But it wouldn’t be nothing, nothing without a woman or a girl

He’s lost in the wilderness
He’s lost in bitterness

Happy Woman’s DAY! After all women should be celebrated EVERYDAY, right? 😀

Appetite for Violence

This is kind of similar to a post I did here.

Isn’t it odd how we use violence as a means of entertainment? Back in Pontius Pilate’s era, the Romans marveled at gladiators ripping each other apart. Matadors kill bulls (if they’re lucky). It gets more entertaining when the Matador messes up and the bull sticks his horn up the Matador’s …. you get the point. 😀

In hockey, when a fight is started, non-participants go to their box, and the referees allow the fight to continue. How awesome is that? The OFFICIALS allow you to release your frustration on your opponents face. Can you imagine if we were allowed to do that in the workplace?? 😉 😀

Mark Stuart vs Shawn Thornton

I know Pete will hate me for this, but NFL is another brutal sport. Certainly not for people with nimble bones. No wonder the guys have to bench press 1000 lbs a day 🙂

Check out this clip on the hardest NFL tackles:

I could continue, but I have to put in some work. So what is it about violence draws in our species? Animals use violence, because well, they’re animals. For them it’s about survival of the fittest.We’ve evolved pass that. I think.

Oh well, let me hear your thoughts on the matter
