Well, Friday's almost over....thank goodness! What a Week! The Hubby has now decided that we need to change computer programs....from Peachtree to Quickbooks and his old flat rate program to a new one that will work with Quickbooks......grief! His old flat rate program refuses to do "as promised" and is costing us money in the long run. I can't tell you how many phone discussions he's had with the company that created it but, there has been...many. Oh well. SO...that means lots of learning for all of us at work. Anyone out there work with QuickBooks? Just wondering how difficult this "learning" is going to be....Gads!Hahahaaaa......

Now, here's a little test we All need to take!! Hahahahaaaa.....My stress level was only 37%! I mean, Really! What can you do about life except just Roll with the punches?.....Nothing...and I mean Nothing, is worth wrecking your mental, emotional or physical health over. Well that's about it for my day....Hope Your stress level isn't too high!! Happy night or day everyone!!
Your Stress Level is: 37%
You are slightly prone to stress, but generally you keep it under control.
You know how to relax and take things as they come, even when your worlds seems to be falling apart.
Occasionally, you do let yourself get stressed out, but you snap out of it pretty quickly.

Dancing With God
When I meditated on the word Guidance,
I kept seeing 'dance' at the end of the word.
I remember reading that doing God's will is a lot like dancing.
When two people try to lead, nothing feels right.
The movement doesn't flow with the music,
and everything is quite uncomfortable and jerky.
When one person realizes that, and lets the other lead,
both bodies begin to flow with the music.
One gives gentle cues, perhaps with a nudge to the back
or by pressing Lightly in one direction or another.
It's as if two become one body, moving beautifully.
The dance takes surrender, willingness,
and attentiveness from one person
and gentle guidance and skill from the other.
Isn't that pretty? I got this in an email this morning....makes a lot of sense. Dancing with God...I like that......alot.
Well, I was Perfectly Lazy this weekend! It was quiet. Of course, Lord of the Ring was on...all three of them...Hahaha....geez. Hope you all had a happy weekend!!

Gen. Douglas MacArthur signs as Supreme Allied Commander during formal surrender ceremonies on the USS MISSOURI in Tokyo Bay. September 2, 1945.
Col. Paul W. Tibbets, pilot of the B-29 Superfortress ENOLA GAY, waves from the cockpit just before taking off from Tinian Island to drop the Atomic Bomb on Hiroshima. The 9,000 lb. bomb was dropped from 31,600 feet and detonated at 8:15 a.m., August 6, 1945, about 1,900 feet above the center of Hiroshima. A blinding light, tremendous explosion and dark gray cloud enveloped the city, followed by a rising mushroom shaped cloud. The Japanese estimated 72,000 were killed and 70,000 out of 76,000 buildings in the city were destroyed.
40mm guns of the USS HORNET fire at Japanese suicide dive bombers, the Kamikazes, as the carrier's own planes were raiding Tokyo, February 16, 1945. By the end of the war, Japan will have sent an estimated 2,257 Kamikazes. "The only weapon I feared in the war," Admiral Halsey said.
What a day this was.....Freedom is Never Free................
Hope you All enjoy a Wonderful and Free weekend....I pray it Never changes..

We had a good time last night! I picked William up at the daycare then we went to the barber shop for a haircut. While in there, the barber said he wanted me to look in a box!! What?? He said "she" wanted to go home with us!...LOL...It was a puppy. Sorry, didn't get a picture, darn! It was a cross between a poodle and a Chihuahua. It Was really cute, but no thanks. Corky's 17 years old and declining. I just couldn't do it. Will asked Crystal though...Hahahaha...Don't think that puppy is gonna get to go home with William either! After we got home, I fed him and he played Guitar Hero, watched TV and wrestled with me and Gampa....Crystal and "T" took Samantha to a concert...Don't Even ask me the name of the group....clueless!lolol....William stayed with Gamma and Gampa...
This is some monster from an old cartoon series...Will knows his name...Gamma doesn't!..LOL
Corky had the right idea though! He just slept through it all! Smart old dog...
I can see already, I won't be able to get back into my book...Acheron. I tried to discuss this with Crystal, but she just screamed and covered her ears, singing...LALALALALA.....!!!LOLOL.....GEEZ!! Later, she said she'd been waiting a Year for it to come out and I was just about to spoil it for her!! OOPS!!!......So, hope your evening was a Happy and Blessed one!!

Research on duct tape was published in the Archives of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine (Oct. 2002). Parents were told to cover the wart with a piece of duct tape for six days. If it fell off, they were to replace it. At the end of the six days, they removed the tape, soaked the wart in warm water and then filed it down with an emery board. The duct tape was replaced the following day and the process was repeated for two months or until the wart disappeared. In this study, 85 percent of the children treated with duct tape were cured. Most warts disappeared within the first month. In fact, the study found that duct tape worked better than freezing warts off.

Well, the technology bug bit me again! Samsung's "Instinct" touch phone. My Smartphone...??? Can't See The Lettering without my reading glasses...GADS!!! Sliding keypads are Not for me. Those buttons are just too small as well! Can't tell you how many calls I've missed or messages I can't find!! I'm tired of trying to be a computer whiz kid...The KID in the store just looked at me politely as I stood there explaining (whining) why I didn't like my present cell phone...LOL...Should have seen his face! I then just stopped talking and decided to cut to the chase...I asked if they had a phone for "old" people...."Oh Yes mam...step over here"....The "Instinct" was calling my name. One finger navigation..."I'll take it"....It Is cool....Just move your thumb all Over the face of it. Takes you where you want to go! I left the store a happy camper. NO Guessing! Well, that's about it for today...Hope you're staying cool OR warm where Ever you are and I'll talk at 'cha tomorrow!
