Plays “I got you babe”
We all like free stuff – don’t we? My blog friend Renee is giving away “talking” Valentine cards. Go to her blog and leave a comment and you may just win a “talking” Valentine Card.
Renee says, “The people at Hallmark are at it again! They are taking greeting cards to a whole new level! You can now send greeting cards with your voice recorded on them!!! They sent me a bunch to check out and give to all of YOU!!”
“Go Red For Women celebrates the energy, passion and power we have as women to band together to wipe out heart disease and stroke.
Thanks to the participation of millions of people across the country, the color red and the red dress now stand for the ability all women have to improve their heart health and live stronger, longer lives.”
I’m going to wear red . . .
From the very begining I notice I could schedule my posts through out the week, but the clock was all discombobulated (here’s that word again). If I wanted my post to appear the same day at 11:00 pm I would wait for the evening to come and then schedule it for the next calendar day at 7:00 am - Ha? It took me a while to get the hang of it but I used this system and it worked for me.
Last night I decided to get into Word Press and see if I could fix the clock. I went into “Settings” then clicked on “Timezone” and set it to UTC -8 and it was done. What is UTC? and why is this set to UTC? I guess it has to do with the world time. I looked it up and still did not make any sense, but I fixed the clock and that is all that matters, right?
Then I saw this picture (I’m a picture person) if I had seen this map I would have understood it sooner. Yeah for pictures!
Noemi and I live in the same city, we try to get together to have lunch, but we are not successful. We do see each other, but usually in another part of the state, but today was the day and we had lunch at a little sandwich shop in Fig Gardens. It was kind of cold, but decided to seat outside (mostly because there was no room indoors), but it was nice, I kept my coat on and the sun was shining
After lunch I headed to Coldwater Creek and, oh boy, they are having a great sale!
On Saturday we were picked up from our hotel by Pastor Darryl Beard and his beautiful wife Alexis. Had a delightful dinner at the Parkers’ Lighthouse Restaurant in Long Beach overlooking the Queen Mary. I had not been to Long Beach in a long time. What a beautiful place, I think Fermin and I are going back soon.
Next day Fermin preached his yearly sermon at Mount Carmel Holy Assembly. What a sweet fellowship they have at that church. Pastor Beard and his wife have been leading that congregation for the last seven years. You can tell the people in the congregation can’t help but love their Pastor and their First Lady. It was good to be with them.
We got home Monday afternoon. That evening Fermin was to go and have dinner with a group of Korean Pastors. I was asked to attend, and I’m so glad I did, I was able to see my friend Fanny and meet one of the pastor’s wife, Susan, and also I got to meet our new US 2 missionary, Sherann Kim. Sherann is going to work at the State Convention in Evangelism with our youth. You can tell what her passion is as soon as she starts talking about young people.
Tony also invited a retired Executive Director from the Ukraine, you can see him on Fermin’s right side. At the dinner table we had several Korean Pastors and wives, a Russian that was born in Germany and raised in Argentina, a Ukrainian that did not speak English, two Mexicans raised in the United States, one Panamanian (your Executive Director), a Mexican American, and one Anglo. I think this is a little bit like how haven is going to be.
Did you know that not only is it good to keep your mouth shut for obvious reasons – it is also good for your health? I heard on the radio that if you are among people who are sick, it is best to keep your mouth close and breath through your nose, that way the little hairs inside your nose trap some of the germs that otherwise would go right into you through your mouth.
Good advise during this flu and cold season.
Stay tune to see where I may appear next.
You can skip this Post altogether. It is not going to make sense.
I’m all discombobulated with my Weight Watchers records, besides I have not been as careful as I should. Today I discovered that the new log where they have been recording the weight (since the first of the year) is a little different than the one I had before. What they were telling me did not match what I was seeing on my piece of paper, Ha.
For my own benefit I’m going to start at “Zero Pounds” loss, which is not too far from the truth (with all of this gains of point this and losses of point that) I have not moved much from dead center. I know I’m babbling, but I’m trying to make some sense of this for myself, and I think I got it.
I gain this week .4, but I’m starting at Zero pounds, remember?
Weight Gain/Lost: -0.0
