Take it Easy Mr Frey..GodSpeed!

  1. Take It Easy

    By Eagles
    Well I'm a-runnin' down the road try'n to loosen my load
    I've got seven women on my mind
    Four that want to own me, two that want to stone me
    One says she's a friend of mine
    Take it easy, take it easy
    Don't let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy
    Lighten up while you still can
    Don't even try to understand
    Just find a place to make your stand, and take it easy
    Well, I'm a standin' on a corner in Winslow, Arizona
    Such a fine sight to see
    It's a girl, my Lord, in a flat-bed Ford
    Slowin' down to take a look at me
    Come on, baby, don't say maybe
    I gotta know if your sweet love is gonna save me
    We may lose and we may win, though we will never be here again
    So open up I'm climbin' in, so take it easy
    Well, I'm a runnin' down the road tryin' to loosen my load
    Got a world of trouble on my mind
    Lookin' for a lover who won't blow my cover, she's so hard to find
    Take it easy, take it easy
    Don't let the sound of your own wheels make you crazy
    Come on baby, don't say maybe
    I gotta know if your sweet love is gonna save me
    Oh, we got it easy
    We outghta take it easy
    Songwriters: BROWNE, JACKSON / FREY, GLENN

RIP Mr Glen Frey....your music still inspires so many.

P.S. I am so tired of all the celebrity deaths lately......life is harsh. Be well everyone.

Rene Angelil


Today is a sad day indeed.It seems that Celine Dion has lost her husband of over 20 years of marriage. It makes me sad because I am a big fan of hers but more importantly a big fan of her love story with her now late husband. I am sure most people would have thought it would never have lasted when they first got together, mainly because of the age difference. But this couple has proved that age is a number and love can conquer anything if it is allowed. Its ironic, I was at home today watching Josh Groban videos today to get my spirits up because I was feeling a bit down. I was watching him when I found out the news that Rene had passed away. As soon as I learned  of the news , a video of Celine's popped up.It was her singing the Prayer with Josh Groban. Very timely to say the least. It kind of took me by surprise because I was  reading about her at that point in time. What is even more strange is that right after that Josh Groban's video  To Where You Are  came on.....If you know his music you know its about losing someone.Needless to say it was a moment in life that I felt a loss and a comfort at the same time. A comfort that this man who suffered for so long is now at peace.The world has lost a great soul.....God Bless and May you rest in peace Rene Angelil. Celine, may you find strength in knowing he is no longer suffering and is now watching over you always.

Lottery fever



Lottery. We all dream of wining it. This week it is over a billion dollars and people are still continuing to run out and buy buy buy those tickets, Yes, I will even get mine because I do realize that someone has to win eventually. So why not me? LOL. But the truth is, the odds of winning is so slim, it inst even worth fantasizing over. Okay, dreams are free but really its almost a waste of time with this one. Seriously what can one person do with all that money? SO because my odds are against me I will just at least write down what I would do with the winning if a miracle should happen.

1, My first wish is to find a house to move into. I frankly am tired of my neighbors rude behaviors and would love to move into something bigger and more quiet.Apartments suck.

2. Of course I have to leave money for my kids education. 3 kids to collage and well, it may take winning the lottery to afford it. Education is not free in this country and it should be.

3.Pay off all my bills. My seasonal job keeps me pretty poor,It would be so awesome to get my creditors off my back.

4.Donate to charity because I do believe karma comes around and its best not to be greedy,

5. Oh, my favorite...I would buy Josh Groban concert tickets in every city so I can travel and hear him sing constantly. I am not obsessed but love good music when I hear it.

6. I would spoil people randomly because that would be freakin so much fun.

7. I would start my own business...i always wanted to start a candle shop. I would make it so relaxing and calming inside that people  just couldn't wait to come to it....I know, I am weird.

8. A new car maybe. Nothing fancy. I have always wanted to own a jeep.....I don't know why .

9.Travel....I have not been on a vacation is so long.....I so need one.I want to go somewhere tropical.....or some place with lots of trees.

10.Visit my family in New Zealand.....cause traveling would be awesome. and of course nice to see family again.

Well that is the basics of what I would do. I know I could do more but frankly I do not need much. Here is to dreaming of the near impossible. May the odds be ever in your favor......dam I watch too much hunger games.....

Peace and Love....

Lets Dance



I would like  to take a moment to say  God Bless and Rest in Peace to an icon that has left us this morning.Now granted I was never a fan of his music growing up, but I could always recognize his voice when he came on the radio. He was very popular in my teen years in the 80's , especially on MTV when they still played many videos, but I never did find a connection to his music. However, the bands I did listen to all were inspired and influenced by David Bowie. So in that sense there IS a connection. By the number of posts I have seen today for him he obviously made many people inspired to live out the artistic expression that they have within. So to David, thanks you for inspiring so many people...without you the world would not have been as good as it is today. It just sucks that the nasty cancer has to end such amazing souls. God Bless.

They are the moments..


Life is made up of precious moments that bless us each and every single day. They are the moments that can come and go so quickly that you can miss them if you don't pay attention. A blink of an eye, a whisper unheard and suddenly they are gone...It us up to us to find them and keep them around us so we can be the best person we can be.

They are the moments in the early morning when you open your eyes and see the light of the new day and the begin to hope for all possibilities and new beginnings.

They are the moments when you reach to the sky and stretch your amazing body and feel the many parts become alive as they work together in harmony. They may creak and even be stiff but they work.

They are the moments when you have that first cup of coffee to awaken your senses so you can plan your new adventures for the glorious day.

They are the moments when you leave your house and see your neighbor and instead of walking past them  in silence you give them a friendly hello, how are you today...just so you can acknowledge their existence and make them smile today.

They are the moments when you take a ride in the car and your favorite song plays reminding you of sweet memories that make up your life.

They are the moments when you can sing out loud proudly and you don't even care that your not the best singer.

They are the moments when you watch a movie or read a good book and you feel inspired to be the change in your own life.

They are the moments when you stumble across a challenge in your day and you keep your perspective in check by taking it on with pride while never feeling sorry for ourselves or giving into despair.

They are the moments when you can give your self to someone else's need without wanting anything in return.

They are the moments when you see your children smile and you know they are happy.

They are the moments you find yourself stuck in traffic due to an accident and your late to somewhere important but you stay calm because you realize that your not hurt, your still alive.

They are the moments when someone says or does something you don't agree with but you can accept their different perspective  calmly  and keep a positive outlook on communication.

They are the moments when you catch a fish and despite its size, you marvel in the beauty of being able to catch God's creature with your skills.

They are the moments you can watch a sunset and all its splendid colors and feel the presence of the universe around you.

They are the moments you end your day of work and return to the comforts of your home, proudly knowing you worked hard today for yourself, your family and your co workers.

Its the moment you can look into your partners eyes and see unconditional love that surrounds you and the acceptance of who you are and you feel that it has made you a better person.

They are the moments when you receive encouraging words from those who matter and you feel the overlooking of all your flaws that make us human.

No matter what the things are that make you get through your life, they are special, and to be cherished. So many things get taken for granted and when we do the universe will always send us reminders on what we are missing.

Peace and love.....

P.s. Did you notice I didn't write anything about checking social media?LOL. Well that is because I hardly think that is a blessing.....just saying.

Oceanside





Happy 2016! I started the beginning of this year on a one day road trip to Oceanside. Got to love California weather. I must say we took this trip just in time as the winter storms have arrived. Photos aren't the best as I only have my crappy phone to take pics with but the scenery still gorgeous. Oh how I never get tired of the ocean. Not a bad way to start of the brand new year. My goal this year is to take more adventures like this. Life is way too short to not do fun things.

Peace and Love always

San Bernardino, guns, stop the violence

OK here we go again. It just seems like  this happened the other day in  Paris. Wait, it did happen the other day in Paris and now we are talking about it again. Fuck! What the hell is wrong with this world?I am pissed that this keeps happening. We have the power to do something but we never do. How many people have to die before people realize we need  better laws?  Now gun supporters no one has said  to take your guns away...we just want better laws that make it harder to obtain one. If your a responsible gun owner this should not be a problem.I am just tired of the endless violence and the pain that families have to endure because someone or someones want to vent their grievances in a harmful way and with a weapon so easily obtained. Doesn't it bother you that their are people in this world that have no problem with killing?  Movies , TV and video games glamorizes it so much that no wonder people are getting desensitized. I cannot comprehend that people can do that and not feel such remorse for human life? But I am not surprised.
 Whats even more disturbing is every time I look on social media these days people keep defending their rights over having a gun as if they are being threatened. It is sickening. People care more about their rights than whats best for the world. I am so sick of the arguments that Gun activists have...oh it it doesn't kill, people do....cars do more killing, alcohol does more killing...please I have heard it all and I say Bullshit. Its hard to do mass shootings with cars or alcohol....yes a gun cannot kill you unless a person is behind it. SO why is it so easy to put people behind them?  Truth is that owning a gun will not protect you from a mass shooting.You probably wont even see it coming. Hell, it probably wont help you if you are caught in a home invasion. No one will have time to get them. Now,  if you are one of those that keeps them loaded in your house at all times then your just asking for trouble. Happens everyday someone gets a hold of a loaded gun and ends up killing someone. People think it cant happen to them but guess what, it usually does. I bet also that most people wont think about the fact that even if you do shot a robber in your house you are opening yourself up for the robber or their families to sue you...yes, they still have rights sad to say. It happens all the time that the criminals are the ones suing. But yes living is more important and I get that. If you are in a moment that you think requires a gun, most likely you will not be thinking clearly enough to know when and when not to pull the trigger. Adrenaline is a funny thing. If you ask me I think people get them so they can shoot someone on purpose later and try to claim self defense. I believe people can be vindictive enough to inflict such pain. Happens all the time, All you have to do is just look at all the road rage incidents that occur daily.  But that is just my theory.I see how the world is so self absorbed with selfies and self promotion that I suppose I really shouldn't be surprised that guns  and personal rights are what people focus on.
 My point on all this is that we seriously need to control our guns and laws. Yes people have rights to own guns, but not just any gun. AGAIN, the fact is  no one has ever said we need to take guns away. We just need better laws. I actually think people should be required to take anger management classes if owning a gun. But that's just my opinion. We need to talk about change and listen to one another. The world will not change if both sides will not come together and work together on issues.If that means giving in on some issues for compromise  than we need to do that. But the fact people attack each other constantly especially after such a tragedy is heartbreaking.
But no matter what side of the issue your on the one thing we can all do is remember those that lost their lives in such tragic events.  Paris, or San Bernardino No one should ever have to die like that. We can also try to be a better neighbor in our neighborhood and listen to those that think differently than you.Each one of us has the power to do something and it is up to us to make changes in our lives and the world around us.
Happy Holidays to all...... and hopefully we can learn to love instead of spreading hate and violence.
