A Ho Hum Monday

A Hot and Humid day today with the sun blazing!! A great day to be some place where it is cool or air conditioned!! But I had to go outside to take care of a couple of errands and to work.  Also, I managed a visit to the Park to take a walk and admire the beauty of Nature..I created a graphic page above this post. 

And, I read an article in USA Today Online edition, informing that the Colorado shooter was found guilty of murder!! He should have been found guilty since he committed the crime!! 

In other news, The Tennessee Titans Wide Receiver died from self inflicted gun shot, according to an article in the USA Today Online edition.  My Prayers go out to his family...and I want to know the reason why He killed himself?  I guess we will know more as the days progress,,,

I have to get ready to run more errands...and i have to stop pass the grocery store later this evening to pick up a few goodies!! So, I want to say Have a Blessed day and enjoy the pages I have created above and below this post!!

A Glorious Saturday

My weekend has begun and what a glorious morning it is..I woke up feeling fine like a spring rose!! Then, I headed outside to fetch the mail and felt the humid air although it is not that hot. If only the humdity level would drop it would be a perfect day!! 
I don't have anything on the agenda but that could change as the day progresses...and the Olympics have started in London!! American swimmer, Michael Phelps, is suppose too take to the pool to compete!  According to an article in USA Today,"  Phelps on Saturday morning qualified for the eighth and final spot in tonight's final of the 400 individual medley. That puts him in an outside lane tonight."
I will have to keep an eye out and I'll be cheering on the American boy and Maryland native!!
And, If you'd like to see what event is coming up check out this page at USA Today with all the highlights and it provides which events compete for a medal. 

In other news, A Maryland Man who planned a Mass shooting event and called himself the 'Joker" has been detained. Geesh, I wonder about the mental state of some people!! If you'd like to read more about this bizarre story, check out article in the Baltimore Sun Online edition here.

I read an interesting article on the Online edition of Catholic Review regarding smiling and increasing one's happiness. A brief summary states "  “Children smile about 400 times a day. Only a third of grown-ups smile more than 20 times a day, and less than 14 percent muster a grin more than five times in 24 hours. Smiling can reduce the level of stress while increasing mood-enhancing hormones like endorphins.”"

Well, I am about to go check out the London Olympics and watch the sporting event. And, I may even get to see the Queen of England!!  Also, Why not view the lovely graphic pages that I have created above and below this post...and Have a Blessed Day!!

A Hot Tuesday

A warm and sunny day today...with the heat and humidity building up to an uncomfortable level unless one likes the Heat!! 
Well, I had to get up early today to take care of some errands and do some running around town. I managed to get a lot accomplished today before coming back home to log onto the computer to take care of some business matters...and I also created a few lovely graphic pages!! You can view the pages above and below this post. 
In news today, Three suspects have been identified and apprehended for the movie Dark Knights that opened in movie theatres in the U.S.  If you'd like to know more, read the article in the Online edition of the USA Today. 

I don't know what to say about all these people and Dark Knight movie episodes...All I know is this movie is getting a lot attention and publicity...although not the kind of publicity that it wants. 

In other news, Michael Phelps is competing in the Olympics!! I hope He wins and brings back lots of trophies to America...He is a great swimmer!! For more information, read the USA Today article here

.And, I read an interesting article in the Catholic Review Online edition..or rather, a column that highlights the benefits of drinking coffee. 
 “Coffee drinkers who were relatively healthy when the study began were less likely than non-drinkers to die of heart disease, respiratory disease, stroke, diabetes, infections, injuries and accidents.”

I don't know how much of this is true but I do drink coffee in moderation. I like the International kind of coffee for its' flavor...So, after reading this column, It now gives me a reason to drink my coffee in the morning, Noon and at Dinner, Haha!! 

Well, It is time for me to go and see what I can get myself into ...I have a lot of work to accomplish before the sun sets!! Have a Blessed and Productive day!!

A Dreary but Happy Saturday

A cloudy and dreary day today as the rains fell from the sky. The perfect day to just lie in the bed and sleep. But I had to get up to take care of a couple of errands. And, I read a little bit about the guy who who killed all those people in a movie theatre in Colorado. A sad tragedy that happened on American soil. 

Anyway, I created some lovely pages and one of FB friends wanted me to create a page using her dog's photo..It turned out really nice and she really loved the page!!! She informed me she will be printing it out. 
Well, You can see that page, as well as, other pages that I have created below. 

Have a Blessed and Happy Saturday!!

Gloomy and Grey Friday

A cloudy, grey day today with no hint of sun shining in the sky. It looks as though it may rain later in the day. 
The perfect day to just sleep but I had to pop out of bed to take care of some errands. 

I awoke today to hear some bad news...A gunman wearing a gas mask and full armour went to movie theatre and shot up a bunch of people in Colorado. I don't know what to say about some people's mentality!! You can read the article in the USA Today Online edition newspaper here. 

And, Because of the shooting in Colorado, Movie Theatres have stepped up security and all because of this one lunatic who went berserk. America is slowly losing its freedoms....
Some theaters and police around the U.S. stepped up security at daytime showings of the new Batman movie Friday after the massacre in Colorado, and while many fans were undeterred by the tragedy, others were nervous about going to see the film."  according to an article in USA Today Online edition.

I don't know what to say about all this violence and crazy stuff happening in America!!

Anyway, I created some lovely graphic pages and you can view them below. Happy Friday and have a Blessed Weekend!!
