Discover the 90 / 10 Principle

It will change your life (or at least the way you react to situations.

What is this principle?

10% of life is made up of what happens to you.

Bedazzling Rainbow ***

On the last day of November 2004, about 8 am, I stepped out to throw some bread scraps out. Turned around to reenter the door and this sight took my breath away. Look to the bottom of the picture; the roof of my home. So you can see how huge a space this rainbow covered. In the seconds it took me to go inside, grab the camera, the density of color had begun to fade; still it shows somewhat in the first picture here.

Isn't this amazing?

You can see clouds but there was no rain before it appeared nor did a drop fall that whole day.

For a Good Cause ***


former cheerleaders perform for good cause: Let's eliminate breast cancer.

Just yesterday I read an article comparing breast cancer incidents in China vs United States. It stated 1 in 100,000 have this cancer in China. 1 in 5 get breast cancer in the US. In China, milk products aren't used. We in US gorge on milk products!

Fifty Five Million Want to Leave! ***

According to the link http://www.borowitzreport.com/ 55 million people, 99.99% of them Americans have requested citizenship to Canada. That is 55,000,000! Borowitz' report was dated Nov. 3 Thursday/yesterday, yet all these requests came in since Tuesday, a period of just 24 hours. Now doesn't this tell us MUCH? Appears many are unhappy with the current situation.

If this continues, seems the United States could become a barren land in a very short time ... who then will be left to vote next election?

Now I wonder just how many are requesting citizenship to America. The term 'seething cauldron' comes to mind.
