Communication Goes A Long Way, For Everyway!!!!!

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!

My Life Story In Segments (1)

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.

Randy Pausch, Who

I always want to share inspiring people, to remind us all what is possible, and to  re prioritize and improve ourselves with our gift of life.  There is just nothing sexier and more beautiful then to see people who learn continually, examine themselves and get the lessons in life.  Randy Pausch is a man who made his foot print on the world, he accomplished the twofer, living his life and making a difference.  In my book it does not get any better than that!   He was a professor at Carnegie Mellon University.

A Precious Song for My Nieces and Nephews, On Behalf Of The Dixie Chicks!

Dixie Chicks, These girls are talented, Patriotic, and it is sad that we have such ignorance in our own country! In 2003 before we invaded Iraq, they made a comment at their concert show in London, radio stations boycotted them, I do not know if  The ban is still on going but, as they proved that truth will always prevail! Go Girls! You should check out their documentary film made in 2006, Shut up and Sing.

Dixie Chicks-Lullaby

Check Them Out, Polyface Inc.

Today,Poly Face, and maybe a hand full more of natural farm lands, are upholding and keeping the integrity of real farming  alive (Agriculture).  For farmers all over the world, I would love to hear your views on the new” mass production” direction farming has taken.  My Grandfather on my mom side was a farmer.

My mom has told me stories of how her mother would provide food to their neighbors from their farm. My mom use to stand in the field and pose as a scarecrow to ward off the birds from their crops.   Back in My Grandmother’s day food was more scarce, and back then, Spain was under Francisco Franco’s rule. I never got a chance to know or experience my Grandmother from Spain, she passed away when my mom was 11.  I think I would have been very proud and in awe of her, she was a very strong,giving soul.

Edward Bernays, We Can Thank Him For The Consuming Culture We Have Become

Edwar Bernays a savvy little cat who pumped his uncle Sigmund Freud for the psychological propaganda avenues to influence his agenda. The Century Of The Self ,by Adam Curtis, is a great documentary to watch.

We need to put the clock back and demand things we need from the market so it will be supplied to us, healthy conscious choices, do not let your TV choose for you,  or the large money grubbing Corporations out there!
