Valentines Day, Do you think that these days are calendered, singled out as reminders for the globe to love one another? Through our journey in life we always need reminders to check ourselves, (introspection) if we are loving , respecting the people and the world around us. For Valentines, I wonder how much , chocolate , jewelry, flowers are bought on this day or days leading up to Valentines Day. I hope everyone feels loved today and everyday, and if you have no one, always remember, you still have yourself!
I think people forget the who,what, when,where and why, and how in five W’s and one H (how)are usually present or provided. Maybe not every time but in the transferring of information from one entity to the other, you should always walk away clear of the message. (whether via person, negotiations,instructions,stories, articles) Why do people become so self righteous in thinking that they, themselves have great communication skills? Self examination people, check yourself, and if your message is not clear, make it clear!
This is not being sexist, it is a fact,(we are grilled about the differences between men and women) that men are notoriously known for being short and to the point, but yet they always complain about the women in their lives about how they complain or are always nagging (bitching). I can not tell you how many women are up to there eyeballs with creative word choices to get resolution. Well the challenge is on men, if you see through all the words and repetitiveness, shouldn’t you step up to the plate and problem solve the communication gap or dilemma? It astounds me how men do not tune in to repetitiveness, (things repeat themselves for a reason), because the issues have not been effectively communicated and resolved. I am a woman whose time is important and my words, opinions, thoughts, carry weight just like my counterpart ( my fellow gentlemen) I have learned through mistakes growing up that I want to be crystal clear about the messages I relay to whatever business, person, loved one, that I come in contact with.
So men and women, give me your honest input!
After I was born in Spain my dad, mother and I did a tour in Japan. What does that say for my mom, a native Spanish woman traveling and living in Japan. Too bad that I was little, I would have loved to have had that experience. I did grade (k-2) in Spain then (3-5) in Sigonella, Sicily. We lived in a town called Nicolosi , (Google map/earth) it was maybe an hour from Mount Etna. The Villa we lived in was gated, it was two story but we resided on the top floor it had a huge stair case that led to the top layer of the upper house, it had a huge upstairs balcony,the bottom house was not occupied. The bottom floor (yard) was tiled mainly, the back of the house had a maze walkway with a well, some fruit trees, it was just fun and dreamy. I use to roller skate on it. I remember the pasta and pizza, I loved the pasta, pizza and the natural sparkling water.
Then my family and I moved to Pensacola, Florida. The US is very wide and spread open, in Europe roads are smaller, walking was very common in Europe, however in the States you need a vehicle 80% of the time to go places. I vaguely remember this time period, but I have moments, like when we were in New Orleans and I had grits for the first time. I remember the American television being different from Spain, more channels and lots of funny shows. There seem to be some awareness of the differences in geography, America is very spread out wide roads, a lot of places are driving distance.
I have mixed feelings about The United States Military. I would love to hear other peoples views on the military. My father was a service man, my brother in-law is an active Military Navy Service man. I Love and appreciate that we have men and women who defend the US, and most of the time, keep the peace around the world, but it always seems that the military is located in places of interest. There are many Embargoes that we have in place with certain countries. However, the Military is one of our biggest polluters of the world!
What about the EPA in all of this? Besides the polluting, I wholeheartedly believe our service men and women are duped by their own government, well we all are, not really knowing the real reason they are at war, or the assignments they are on. I remember when a service man addressed the former Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld about their trucks not being fully armored and faulty.
Walter Reed was a hot topic not up to Building code, not providing treatment to our recently wounded or our Veterans of past wars.
I sure hope the conditions at Walter Reed have improved. What kind of collection of people (government) do that to their own! I say let all our Government personnel suit up and go fight our wars!
Ron Paul Speaks on Interventionism
China has a block , a fire wall called the (Golden Shield Project) to the world wide web. Do we want our Civil Liberties, taken away from us,? Each year something is taken away from us, however, I want to keep my internet, Thank You! I will continue to share and bring to light the threats to all human freedom!
Julian Assange, was also referred to as the “founder of Wikileaks” . It’s interest is in exposing oppressive regimes in Asia, the former Soviet , Africa and the Middle East, but they expect to be of assistance to people of all regions who wish to reveal unethical behavior in their governments and corporations.
World clocks, gives you the time of the world by individual clocks, all hours every hour, for business use or just being aware of the time difference for your loved ones abroad.
I do not wish to insult anyone’s beliefs, but do most practicing, religious people ever step back to think about what being a christian is :
- Christian denomination
- Jewish denomination
- Islamic denomination
- Hindu denominations
- Buddhist denomination
Some Denomination’s are so quick to tell you your need for religion in your life, but we all have different tools, beliefs we use to remind us or help us get through the hard times in life. If religion is your thing, great, however pay attention to the messages and the actions that you carry out in the name of your religion, denomination.
I think about Vatican City, I have been there before. All the wealth, jewels, adornments, gold, why? The enormous amount of money it houses, those gaudy gold dripping collections, could be given away for better use to humanity. I feel that there is a lot of corruption in the religious sector, churches are exempt from taxes, they carry an enormous amount of influence in the name of religion.
The movie Leap of faith is a great movie on church corruption.
