To all my dear Spark Friends

Wednesday, December 23, 2009

Needless to say you have probably noticed I haven`t been very active on Sparks lately. I have had a lot of travel and other events cutting into my play time. I think of you all often though and will try to get back into regular communication here. Sometimes one just needs a break from everything.
Christmas is 2 days away and I wish all of you a prosperous and wonderful new beginning in 2010.
Enjoy your family and friends during this festive season and enjoy the message I wish to share with you at

Seasons Greetings from Canada...Marlies

Cooling my jets in Frankfurt

Friday, December 11, 2009

Hi my Spark friends. I`m sitting in the airport in Frankfurt, Germany. My flight to London has been delayed for 3 hours due to heavy fog in London. Meeting my husband there who came over on a different flight. Meeting up with him might be a challenge as this delay has changed our plans of when and where. I only have an hour of internet time here to get all the necessary messages done. After a 9 hour flight, I really don`t need this.
More later. M

    Hi Marlies,
Thanks for the quick blog and I hope your travel plans all work out. Weather is bad everywhere this week. I'm in NYC and flying back to Oregon today so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it doesn't snow... it is very cold and windy. Take care my friend and hope to see you sparkin again soon. Hugs, Rhonda

El Presidente

Tuesday, November 24, 2009

This is so cool. Last night at the AGM, I was made President of our company. I would have preferred Queen status but what the heck?
My husband is now chairman so we are both happy with the change as it makes a big difference in getting immersed in the women's empowerment movement.
Women rule no matter how you look at it!!!!!!!!!

    Woo Hoo to you Mrs. President! We always knew who was in charge but this is the frosting on the cake. Hugs and Congratulations, R.

PS - Thanks for the suggestion on my blog about having my brother smoke outside. Since I am the visitor and he lives on the 3rd floor, I hesitated to do that. It isn't just as easy as stepping outside. Anyway, we did have a talk and he agreed to smoke in the bathroom. That should help. He also told me he wants to quit as he knows that he can't get back in top physical form if he is smoking. We shall see!

Women ...Protect Yourselves!

Wednesday, November 11, 2009

An Australian Cop wrote this for women
Because of recent abductions
In daylight hours, refresh yourself
of these things to do in an emergency situation...
This is for you to share
with your wife,your children,everyone you know.
After reading these 9 crucial tips,
forward them to someone you care about.
It never hurts to be careful in this crazy world we live in.
1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do :
The elbow is the strongest point on your body.
If you are close enough to use it, do!
2.. Learned this from a tourist guide.
If a robber asks for your wallet or purse,
Toss it away from you....
Chances are that he is more interested
in your wallet or purse than you,
and he will go for the wallet or purse.
3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car,
kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole
and start waving like crazy..
The driver won't see you, but everybody else will.
This has saved lives.
4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars
after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just sit
(doing their chequebook, or making a list, etc.
The predator will be watching you, and this
is the perfect opportunity for him to get in
on the passenger side, put a gun to your head,
and tell you where to go.
If someone is in the car
with a gun to your head
Instead gun the engine
and speed into anything, wrecking the car.
Your Air Bag will save you.
If the person is in the back seat
they will get the worst of it .
As soon as the car crashes
bail out and run.
It is better than having them find your body
in a remote location.
5. A few notes about getting
into your car in a parking lot,
or parking garage:
A.) Be aware:look around you,
look into your car, at the passenger side floor ,
and in the back seat
B.) If you are parked next to a big van,
enter your car from the passenger door.
Most serial killers attack their victims
by pulling them into their vans while the women
are attempting to get into their cars.
C.) Look at the car
parked on the driver's side of your vehicle,
and the passenger side... If a male is sitting alone
in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back
into the mall, or work, and get a
guard or policeman to walk you back out.
IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)
6. ALWAYS take the elevator
instead of the stairs.
Stairwells are horrible places to be alone
and the perfect crime spot.
This is especially true at NIGHT!
7. If the predator has a gun
and you are not under his control,
The predator will only hit you (a running target)
4 in 100 times; and even then,
it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ.
RUN, Preferably in a zig -zag pattern!
8. As women, we are always trying
to be sympathetic:
It may get you raped, or killed.
Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking,
well educated man, who ALWAYS played
on the sympathies of unsuspecting women.
He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often
asked 'for help' into his vehicle or with his vehicle,
which is when he abducted
his next victim.
9. Another Safety Point:
Someone just told me that her friend heard
a crying baby on her porch the night before last,
and she called the police because it was late
and she thought it was weird.. The police told her
'Whatever you do, DO NOT
open the door..'
The lady then said that it sounded like the baby
had crawled near a window, and she was worried
that it would crawl to the street and get run over.
The policeman said, 'We already have a unit on the way,
whatever you do, DO NOT open the door.'
He told her that they think a serial killer
has a baby's cry recorded and uses it to coax
women out of their homes thinking that someone
dropped off a baby. He said they have not verified it,
but have had several calls by women saying that
they hear baby's cries outside their doors
when they're home alone at night.
10. Water scam!
If you wake up in the middle
of the night to hear all your taps outside running or what you think is a
burst pipe, DO NOT GO OUT TO INVESTIGATE! These people turn on all your
outside taps full bore so that you will go out to investigate and
then attack.
Stay alert, keep safe, and look out for your neighbours!
Please pass this on
This e-mail should be taken seriously because
the Crying Baby Theory was mentioned on
America's Most Wanted when they profiled
the serial killer in Louisiana.
I'd like you to forward this to all the women you know.
It may save a life. A candle is not dimmed by lighting another candle..
I was going to send this to the ladies only,
but guys, if you love your mothers, wives, sisters,daughters, etc.,
you may want to pass it onto them, as well.
Send this to any woman you know that may need
to be reminded that the world we live in has a lot of crazies in it
and it's better to be safe than sorry..
Everyone should take 5 minutes to read this. It may save your life or love one's life

    Good reminders especially relevant during the holiday season. I especially like the one about running if they have a gun as your chances are so much better that way. With a knife?? not sure ~ who knows? It makes me so sad when I see video of people being abducted and they seem to go without a fight.

Thanks for all the birthday wishes and the goodie. I feel very spoiled! I'm off to have lunch with a friend and the sun is shining today!

Hugs, Rhonda
