Tiny hands
scribbled notes
presents wrapped
memories of birthday's
painful at times
yet happy to set free.

Green (Algeria) and White(USA)
Are in for a fight
The winner may go on
the looser will go home.
May the best team win.

This is really an exciting match.

I saw the movie "Shutter Island" yesterday,I think it was an awesome movie and so did "J" .It did start out a little slow but kept you at the edge of your seat.It made you realize how fragile the mind was and how easy it is for a person to live two different lives and to think it is real.I think even in our daily lives we sometimes do and think things that are not real and we believe it is.It is very easy to get caught up and make it real and believe it too that it may make people around you believe. think often as children we have make believe characters and stories and believe them, but as we grow older we know better and do not believe those things,It is a disease when even as an adult you fail to seperate the two.
For those who have not seen this movie I recommend it.I am unable to go to the movies so was happy to see it on video.

Fathers day is a day of commemoration and celebration of Dad. It is a day to honor your father. Happy Fathers Day To All The Dads in the world.

When I think of my father
I remember a man of small stature, soft spoken
A silent provider, immaculately dressed
Shoes shining bright.
Always reading a newspaper, smoking a pipe,
Occasionally playing the Harmonica,
Watching wrestling matches into the wee hours
of the night.

I saw love in his eyes
Always giving without compromise.
A man of few words, confident and fair
Even though he was always away
I knew he still cared.

Proud of his children, and
he went to great lengths
To give us what we needed depriving himself.
He taught me the things in life that
I needed to know.
He was the tower of strength, source of love
Even in the midst of my imperfections and pitfalls
He accepted me and helped me grow.

I remember the train rides to and fro
And helping me with my home work because
I did not know.
He was a man who enforced discipline
Yet lenient in some
My mothers best friend
Who was there to the end.

I am sad that he is no more
But he lives in my heart
He will always be remembered
Not only today but forever .
I am honored to have known this man
I wish you were here Dad.

Drill Baby Drill was the chant we all heard
There is a big mess, will the clean water be restored.
Wildlife poisoned, livelihood destroyed
All for the love of really cheap oil.

Pellicans, fish,seagulls and birds
Soiled and oiled they wash up on shore
even after a clean up, no where to go.

responsibility we must take
To see that there is no mistake
when we drill on land or sea
we think of others and just not me.

we resist Goverment regulation
we resist public transportation
Gas guzzling vehicles we all want to drive
we want cheap oil,that off shore drilling provides.
There is so much blame to pass around,
we have seen it happen, now we have to learn.

Differences set aside,countries comes together
Teams dressed in colors
Show case their talent
Once in a lifetime opportunity for some
prayers said, medallions held
To be the team that emerges the winner.

Across the stands, a sea of color
spectators buzzing like bees
traveled by air, land and sea
painted faces,waving flags
children inspired .

Referees running
legs flying
heads knocking
A goal scored
fans in an uproar .

For some defeat, hopes destroyed
dreams unfulfilled.
For others, lessons learned
sportsmanship earned
still time to be the best team that wins.

I love soccor.

In between a busy day he
Takes time off ,drives me to the doctor
comforts, re assures and cares
Thank you for always being there.

Had a doctor visit today,it was a really long day, lots of traffic and in the end I did not get to see the doctor because he was doing some procedures at the hospital.I took some pictures from the car of the city .thought I would share them.

A nice small cute home, not all the houses in Beverly hills are mansions.

Love the beautiful trees

$8/hr to park here...quite steep!

A beautiful apartment building

A street in Beverly hills lined with beautiful purple flowers

Don't rely on someone else for your happiness and self worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can't love and respect yourself - no one else will be able to make that happen. Accept who you are - completely; the good and the bad - and make changes as YOU see fit - not because you think someone else wants you to be different.” Stacey2005 Stacey Charter quote

Ok I literally don't have a broken heart but a heart that is misbehaving.does not want to follow a pattern but do what it pleases.I dont have any chest pains or anything serious but sometimes I just have a sinking feeling when it skips a beat.I think my heart is enjoying all this good weather we are having and just feels like skipping around.Went to the cardiologist on Tuesday and I have an event monitor on.it is recording all my heart beats and then will send the information to the doctor via blue tooth technology.I was impressed with the device.I have posted a picture to show you what it looks like. this is my second day with it on and may have to have it on for another day or untill the doctor says it has to come off.so I am just resting at home watching tv and I watched a movie "Wake up Sid" which was really good and had a happy ending.to all my friends have a good weekend and thanks for stopping by.
