I found this on one of my teams and thought I'd better share:

Someone who is a Spark member calling him/herself FRIEND4YOU5. She calls herself
Princess Sameera Michel & is asking for help in getting a very large amount of money out of her country and also for her to relocate to our country!!

SCAM - I guess he/she thinks that sending through Sparkmail - you might think its genuine !!
DO NOT answer it!!

At the bottom of the Sparkmail there is a button - report inappropriate Sparkmail! - click on this and report it!!

Dr. Wayne Dyer


A longer video "I Can Do It"
I hadn't watched the whole video before I posted this. I listen to it in the background of what I'm doing on the computer. Parts might be boring.

Check out the other videos at the righthand side.

    He does sound Irish, I agree. I didn't find his bio yet.

Nell, what, you didn't like my facial? I thought the fuchsia highlightin my face brought out my eyes. LOL

    Well, that's something I've not heard before! Hopefully it'll be just what Charlotte needs to get a kick start! And that facial sure left you lookin' a little scary!

    I'll have to listen to it again. I was listening to the accent and thought Irish and did a search & came up first English-German and I'm thinking he sounds Irish. Did go through more and found Irish. Also saw he was in a lot of tv shows I watched.

Will go back and play it again. Thanks for sharing.

So Sad about Cory M

Monday, July 15, 2013

Shocked and so sad to hear about Cory Monteith. I do hope it wasn't drugs or pill connected. He just got out of rehab. Not to say the 'business' drove him there, he did drugs etc at age 12 or 13.
It is hard enough in everyday life, but being in the spotlight makes it harder.

Lea Michelle has to be devastated. I heard that they were engaged.

    It always bothers me when someone so young passes. The pressures of being in the spotlight are tremendous and I wish there was a way to correct that.

    Yes, I agree that it was so sudden and tragic. He was so young. I am thankful that I never had the addiction problems of so many people in our society. It must be so hard to kick the habit.

Very sorry for Lea, as well.

Just Blogging to Blog

Monday, July 08, 2013

Yes, what to blog about when we get points if we blog about anything?

Today was a good day, no rain, although I suppose we could have used it. We took my MIL to get her blood work and stopped at the book store to pick up a couple books in the Mitford series.

Anyone ever read any of those books? I'm on the first book, 'At Home in Mitford'. I think the lead character is Catholic, but he talks of marriage. He isn't married in the book. Small town, where everyone knows everyone. I'd like that. Nice calm neighborhood. Reminds me of Mayberry.

That would make a fun story to write, with various characters, living in a small town of....Clancieville (okay, I shouldn't name it after my dog) how about Summermoor, Springdale, (where did Archie and Jughead live?), or maybe a name like Bristolmoor, WinnDixieville (ooo, love their baked beans, slurp), Merlin Mill run, Livermoor (I lived in Liverpool),
Mt. Rushmore......no, wait, that is taken. Mt. Sandwich. Now I'm just hungry.

need to have a bakery, mercantile, ( just what is a mercantile, a general store?), church, corner deli, repair shop, black smith....oh, how old is this town?? How about a flower shop.

This is like having a boring long day and what goes through your mind. LOL

Anyhow, now you know I've gone over the bend so will sign off now.

    That is an idea Nell. I have ideas for people and businesses, just need a storyline. LOL Maybe if I have time, I'll work up something.

    Whoa - I agree - for not having something to write about you did a pretty fine job emoticon

I think you need to write that story. You could write it in installments that you post to the blog - then you get to tap into your creative side AND get your SP points for blogging!

    I got several of those books for my Mom- she loves that series. And I got the cookbook and other "extra" books for her too. Check Amazon- that's where I got all of hers.

You crack me up, Courti! I love the small town thing- that's what we should do with Westward Ho! They need to settle and set up small town life. emoticon

    I've never heard of them. I typically read crime drama, which explains why I don't like going out of my house. emoticon
I hear ya about blogging to get the points. Sometimes you just don't have anything to say.

    OOooo, I neveer thought to name the town after an ancestor....TenEyck Valley. I have a lot of intereting names I've come across in my family tree, Keziah (found that in the Bible too), Leander, Baltzer, Baron. Hmmm, Baronville.

    I've read the Mitford series. They used to have a cookbook out, too, but I'm not sure if it is still available.

I too write. Most of my stories are based on people I know or events in my life only as fiction. I named the town after one of ancestor's last name. It is fun to have characters all from the same town in each story. I think I'll move my characters in my next story to the area where I have lived for over 20 years.

For thinking you had nothing to write for a blog, you've done a terrific job! Thanks for sharing!!
