Ode to Oreo

Our dear cat passed out of this world today.
Oreo will forever live in our hearts.

We laughed all the time with him.
If he wasn't at the fridge door (which he was.) A lot.

He was watching tv

Or drinking water from anywhere there was water...

He was always hangin out with friends

or sleeping

and sleeping

He will always be remembered by all that cherished him.
We loved having you in our lives Oreo. May your spirit live on.

Till we meet again.

What’s with the saggy-ass granny panties?

Ok this is great...(an exerpt from  luckybitch.com).  I believe.
Level with me for a minute - what kind of underwear are you wearing?
No, I’m not trying to be a perv! I know it's a personal question (I'm sans bra right this second if you must know!)
I’m asking because you can tell a LOT about someone’s money mindset from the type of underwear they’ve got on.
Yep, you read that right: your panties are intrinsically linked to your money mindset.
Really, how?
Well, there are so many ways that we women fake our level of self-worth – we’re excellent at putting on a smiley face and some lip-stick, and pretending to the world that we’ve got it together.
But our underwear? Well, unless you’ve got a hot date planned, most of us don’t give it a second thought – no one’s going to see it, so it doesn’t matter, right?
So we bum around in our daggiest, saggiest ‘granny panties’ because if no one else is gonna see it, then we think it doesn’t matter.
But what kind of message is that sending to our subconscious?
That our nice clothes are just a fa├žade.
That underneath it all, we’re not really worthy of nice things.
That we don’t care enough about ourselves to wear well-fitting, comfortable and sexy undergarments.
That we’re not worth the money it costs to buy new undies (or whatever)
That we only value things that impact others.
That we don’t really value ourselves.
All of which undermine our ability to attract money and abundance.
In case you think I’m judging your washed out briefs here, please know that I wore nothing but nanna panties and bras for years. Sometimes even second hand bras.
In fact, I had one particularly old bra where the underwire had come loose and would always dig into my side-boob. Yet I continued to wear it for months, jabbing the wire back into it’s tubey-thing, all because I didn’t want to spring for a new one! Crazy. (Ummm, and painful!)
But when I upgraded my money mindset, my dodgy granny knickers were one of the first things to go. I knew it was a really important way of showing that I valued myself and deserved nice things. Even if I was the only person in the world who knew about it!
So these days, I’m conscious about my underwear. I’m no longer prepared to skimp on supporting myself (both metaphorically and literally!). Which isn’t to say I wear flashy lingerie every day – um no. But I always wear nice, cute, properly fitted bras that feel good to wear. And the second they pass their use by date, they’re gone.
So if you want an instant window into the state of your money mindset, just get honest about the state of your underwear. Does it make you feel good? Or is it a faded, daggy old thing that you’d be mortified for anyone to actually see?
If it’s the latter, it’s time to do some work, lady!

I have a dream

In his iconic speech at the Lincoln Memorial for the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, King urged America to "make real the promises of democracy." King synthesized portions of his earlier speeches to capture both the necessity for change and the potential for hope in society.

We all have dreams.

It's a change in consciousness.

And King said "But there is something that I must say to my people, in the process of gaining our rightful place, we must not be guilty of wrong.   We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again, we must rise to the majestic heights (Yes) of meeting physical force with soul force.

A brave and true soul of the times.

Live your dreams.  Be in the now.
