''THE WORLD 'S SHORTEST FAIRY TALE!"
Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl
"Will you marry me?" The girl said:"NO!" And the girl lived
happily ever-after and went shopping, dancing, camping, drank
martinis, always had a clean house, never had to cook, did whatever
the hell she wanted, never argued, didn't get fat, traveled more,
had many lovers, didn't save money, and had all the hot water to
herself. She went to the theater, never watched sports, never wore
freakin' lacy lingerie that went up her @ss, had high self
esteem, never cried or yelled, felt and looked fabulous in sweat
pants and was pleasant all the time. The End
Oh Thank YOU Annette.
There is nothing better than having someone "get" me, except for one thing, being True and Honest to myself!

Just thought I'd share some useful information given by the Almighty Dr. Oz. Given that it is the day after a "family get together" Holiday. They can be stressful and/or a lot of fun. Either way the Wonderful Wizard of Oz's words of wisdom may come in useful today. I wish I found this yesterday... oh well??!!
-Is there a cure for a hangover?
Dr. Oz says avoiding a hangover starts the night before when you are drinking. "You never really want to have alcohol without water next to it. You need the water to flush it through your system. That's pretty simple," he says. "But the alcohol you drink should be the color of water, ideally, as well." Dr. Oz says this is because darker alcohols contain more congeners, which he says are what causes hangovers.
If you wake up with a hangover, Dr. Oz says to eat something—especially eggs. "Eggs are effective because the eggs, in their yolk, have something called N-acetyl-cysteine," he says. "What it really is, is a way of giving your body antioxidants, and those antioxidants are critically important to your liver that's going to battle right now trying to cleanse all the junk that's left over."
Dr. Oz says taking aspirin can help reduce the inflammation caused by drinking. A cup of Joe doesn't hurt either. "Coffee's pretty effective, because alcohol is a depressant. Alcohol takes you down," he says. Unfortunately, when you sleep after drinking alcohol, Dr. Oz says it's not "good sleep." "[Alcohol] just sort of gets you into a sleepy period, and you're depressed all night long. Coffee's a stimulant, so it gets you going again in the morning.
* Dr. Oz is Vice-Chair and Professor of Surgery at Columbia University. He directs the Cardiovascular Institute and Complementary Medicine Program at New York Presbyterian Hospital. His research interests include heart replacement surgery, minimally invasive cardiac surgery, complementary medicine, and health care policy. He has authored over 400 original publications, book chapters, and medical books and has received several patents. He performs over 350 heart operations annually.
Dr. Oz was born June 11, 1960 in Cleveland, Ohio and received his undergraduate degree from Harvard University (1982) and obtained a joint MD and MBA (1986) from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and Wharton Business School.
In addition to numerous appearances on network morning and evening news programs, Dr. Oz has been recurrently featured on Oprah.
Dr. Oz authored the award winning “Healing from the Heart”, as well as numerous pieces in Newsweek, Oprah Magazine, and the New England Journal of Medicine. He has a bi-monthly column in Esquire magazine. His books include “You: The Owner’s Manual” and "You: On a Diet".
And check out this question and answer session!!??
Boy, he is a busy guy! I find him to be full of useful information, down to earth, and his explanations are so easy to understand, even this blonde can comprehend him! That says A LOT!!
Happy Day After Thanksgiving Y'all!

I want to share a little secret of mine with all of you. I think I am ready to share this, cross my fingers here I go...
I have not always been the Confident, Sassy Motivational Diva some of you have come to know. I have changed a lot, only in the last three years. Above is a picture of me at about 170 pounds at the beginning of my "I Come First Now" Journey. It is so hard to look at the "old" me. All the negative emotions of that time come flooding back when I look at pictures of the "Anti-Me". As many pictures as I have burned, there is always still one more lurking somewhere. I have now come to realize that I have to accept my past, and that it has lead me to where I am today. I need to be proud of my accomplishments. And I need to focus my attention forward. Yet I have to remember my "old" self as a measure NOT to repeat it. I think I can finally accept me FULLY!!!
By the way, that is my Grandmother, she is 94 years old now. She is one wonderful lady. Her and my Grandfather were married over 60 years, before he past away. Wonderful role models, in every way.
