I haven't blogged for a couple of days ... however, I did find some very entertaining animation on You Tube, which you will find posted on my homepage. I just had to share some of it.
I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do. ~Edward Everett Hale
It is the greatest of all mistakes to do nothing because you can only do little - do what you can. ~Sydney Smith
The difference between a helping hand and an outstretched palm is a twist of the wrist. ~Laurence Leamer, King of the Night
When you dig another out of their troubles, you find a place to bury your own.
There is no use whatever trying to help people who do not help themselves. You cannot push anyone up a ladder unless he is willing to climb himself. ~Andrew Carnegie
Instead of counting your days, make your days count. ~Author Unknown
Prop 37 in California was defeated - 53.1% to 46.9%.
According to http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-prop37-genetic-food-labeling-20121108,0,7519439.story :
"The measure fell victim to a media blitz bankrolled by $46 million in campaign contributions from big biotech companies, including Monsanto Co., grocery manufacturers and agricultural firms."
It's difficult to fight big buck biotech monies. The issue is not dead; the fight for GMO food labeling will surely continue.
“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.”
“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be
changed without changing our thinking.” ~Albert Einstein
No matter how many mistakes you make or how slow you progress, you are
still way ahead of everyone who isn’t trying. The beginning of any journey IS the first step ... and another, and another ...
Making one person smile can change the world – maybe not the whole world, but
their world. This is why I continue to do my website.
Never do something permanently foolish just because you are temporarily upset.
Boy, that's a face-slapper, oh yeah ... been there, done that, more than one time in my life!
You can learn great things from your mistakes when you aren’t busy denying them.

Love and appreciate your parents. We are often so busy growing up, we forget they are also growing old. I wish my parents would have grown old enough for me to have been able to have shown them more love and appreciation; they both deserved more. ~nrl
Someone else doesn’t have to be wrong for you to be right. You may express yourself differently from another but, ultimately, be trying to convey the same thing. Miscommuinication or poor listening skills don't make us 'right or wrong', but simply misunderstood. ~nrl
No matter how good or bad you have it, wake up each day thankful for your life. Someone somewhere else is desperately fighting for theirs. Just try having a "pitty pat party" for yourself ... be vulnerable, observe and listen ... you will often find your problems are minimal.
You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading your last one. I am ...
Change always comes bearing gifts. ~Price Pritchett
Prop 37 is still too close to call. It's an important measure. We DO have a right to know what we're eating, and being sold. I should be able to know if foods in my local grocery are genetically modified or not, then make my own choices about them. I wish I lived in California right now so that I could vote on this.
Here's what Obama says: “Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” ~Barack Obama
Is this the kind of change we really want? I hope y'all are not disappointed. I can't whine or complain ... well, I CAN ... but I didn't vote. I didn't vote because I don't feel it makes a difference, and ... I don't like voting for the 'team' I disliked the least. Based on that, I felt it was better to not vote at all.
With the condition of this country, I don't see how anyone, no matter name or party, can fix or make our country strong again. Daily changes are transparent and not as noticeable; then all of a sudden - things have drastically changed! I hope I am wrong.
Now we get to listen to all the voting aftermath, whooppeeeee!
This is such an interesting video, about water.
Here's a few more links, about water:
The most striking statement for me is: "MRSA spreads on contaminated objects as well as through direct contact." It can be spread through direct contact and also by objects that are contaminated with the MRSA bacteria. It's getting so we can't touch, hug, and even shake, or hold hands, without fear of some 'super bug' transmission. It's pretty scary when you fear the very people who are supposed to be able to help you get better. Time for Jetson bubbles?!
According to: http://www.webmd.com/skin-problems-and-treatments/understanding-mrsa-methicillin-resistant-staphylococcus-aureus
"Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a bacterium that causes infections in different parts of the body. It's tougher to treat than most strains of staphylococcus aureus -- or staph -- because it's resistant to some commonly used antibiotics.
The symptoms of MRSA depend on where you're infected. Most often, it causes mild infections on the skin, like sores or boils. But it can also cause more serious skin infections or infect surgical wounds, the bloodstream, the lungs, or the urinary tract.
Though most MRSA infections aren't serious, some can be life-threatening. Many public health experts are alarmed by the spread of tough strains of MRSA. Because it's hard to treat, MRSA is sometimes called a 'super bug'"
Read about Tanya and the devastating effects on her, her body, and her life. What happened to her was all a result of getting a little cut, slicing celery. The irony of all of this is that MRSA is not that easily detectable, especially if it attacks the 'inside' of your body. Had it not been for this woman insisting that something with her physical body was "just not right", she most likely would have died. Doctors need to "listen" when a patient says, "something's just not right".
I saw her heart-wrenching story on the OWN channel this morning:
What I don't understand is why MRSA has become so prevalent in hospitals. Do the nurses and doctors not follow the general rules of prevention and cleaniness? The articles I read and news blurbs I see are indicating that MRSA is now killing more people than die from AIDS! Wowsa, scary ...
According to The Centers for Disease Control the spread of MRSA is caused by:
Here are a few other links that might enlighten you more about MRSA, its symptoms, causes, effects, and prevention.
I've never heard of him ... not crazy about him alone, but did enjoy his duet with Brenda!
Who is this little girl?
