Sunset At The North Pole/Awesome

Sunday, March 14, 2010

Sunset at the North Pole with the Moon at Closest Point ...
How’s this for a picture….


This is the sunset at the North Pole with the moon at its closest point last week.

A scene you will probably never get to see in person,
So take a moment and enjoy the scenery at the North Pole.

And, you also see the sun below the moon,

An amazing photo and not one easily duplicated.
You may want to pass it on to others so they can enjoy it.

The Chinese have a saying that goes something like this:

'When someone shares with you something of value,
You have an obligation to share it with others!'

I just did..

    LOL reading your answers, I was like, "wow...she sounds waaaaay too healthy for me..." LOL! I'm working my way up to eating that healthy. I tend to come home from work and not want to cook hence low fat/sodium canned soups or healthy choice meals. Every blue moon I'll do a healthy stir fry or cook up brown rice and beans. I have to be in the mood to do it though. :) But I loved your answers!

    Some great questions on this one!! I found Sparkpeople in a similar way. All the office girls were joining Weight Watchers but I couldn't afford so I looked for a different "club" to join and here we are!!

mouse for women

Saturday, March 13, 2010

After years of research, scientists have discovered that women do not like the standard mouse given away with PC's. Scientists found that there is not a physical reason for their aversion; It is more of a Psychological problem.

Some women reported that their mouse 'just didn't feel right' in their hands. Based on the research, a new mouse has been designed especially for women.

Various field tests have been carried out on the new design:

Julie from Hounslow said:-

'It feels so much better. More comfortable, more like how it's supposed to be'
Susan from Chelmsford added:-

'I think mice were originally designed just for men, but this new type is definitely made for women. It fits right in with my lifestyle'

Hillary from Kent :said -

'I took to it like a duck to water, every woman should have one'!

Sally From London Said –

“It feels so natural”
