Home Remedies


1. If you are choking on an ice cube simply pour a cup of boiling water down your throat. Presto! The blockage will instantly remove itself.
2. Avoid cutting yourself slicing vegetables by getting someone else to hold while you chop.
3. Avoid arguments with the Mrs. about lifting the toilet seat by using the sink.
4. For high blood pressure sufferers: simply cut yourself and bleed for a few minutes, thus reducing the pressure in your veins. Remember to use a timer.
5. A mouse trap, placed on top of your alarm clock, will prevent you from rolling over and going back to sleep after you hit the snooze button.
6. If you have a bad cough, take a large dose of laxatives, then you will be afraid to cough.
7. You only need two tools in life: WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.
8. Remember: Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.


...thanks Jane, I needed the laugh today! I especially like #5, 6, & 7!

A Better Rain

Mood for a Day
Originally uploaded by mRio

It was a dreary rainy day today in H-town, which can make for a sad mood but as I left my massage this afternoon I kind of stood out there basking in the magic of cold rain drops stinging me and thanking God for letting me know that He's alive. A better rain it was!

Thanks to mRio for photo.

Howdy Folks

Yep, it's that time of the year here in H-Town and here comes the rodeo where all cowboy and cowgirl wanna be's (me included) get all duded up for one of the biggest rodeos in the country. Some of the biggest country stars come into town for three weeks of star-studded performances. Years ago, I used to work the rodeo and in doing so I got hooked on country music, thanks to George Strait! ;-) Nobody sings a country ballad like George. I've been digging out my old cd's and listening to some of that good old country know that crying in your beer music! Some of it cracks me up sometimes! I don't think I'll be going to the rodeo this year and I don't listen to the music as much as I used to but it's been fun listening and reminiscing...especially all those Rodeo cookoffs.

I definitely need to go and check it out.

Friday Funnies

...and the laughs continue!
Earl and Bubba, two good ole boys from Louisiana are quietly sitting in a boat fishing, chewing and drinking beer when suddenly Bubba says, "I think I'm going to divorce my wife - she hasn't spoke to me in over 2 months."Earl spits, sips his beer and says, "You better think it over - women like that are hard to find.

Dear Lord

Dear Lord,
So far today, I am doing all right!
I have not gossiped, lost my temper,
been greedy, grumpy, nasty, selfish, or self indulgent.
I have not whined, complained, cursed, or
eaten any chocolate. I have charged nothing
on my credit card. But, I will be getting out of bed
in a minute, and I think I will need your help then.
Sound familiar!

Music: In the Hands of Love, Ottmar Liebert
Mood: ehh (I'm going to back to work tomorrow)
Word of the Day...
Day 1 and we begin again. Daily Om has a great post for "starting new" of which I am going to print and keep a copy at the office and at work.
Today began with meditation and prayer. Late this afternoon, I took a nice walk in the crisp cold air. Earlier this evening, I caught up with a friend I hadn't seen in awhile.
I've been off work for the past two weeks and it has been wonderful to take time out. I needed it so much. Even though the rush of the holidays kept me busy, I still managed to slow down and more importantly work on attunement.
Tomorrow, work begins again and while I could use another week off my checkbook is telling me to get back into the office. :-( January promises to be a very busy month but I need to remind myself to slow down. Some exciting (and scary) things will be happening in the coming weeks and I'll share that as we get closer to the middle of the month. Till then, all the best to you and yours in 2008 and thanks for always stopping by.
