I can’t believe that I have actually hit 3,068 hits on my blog. I want to thank everyone for being patient with me and my injuries. I said I promised to be back on soon, I will I promise, the sitting is the problem though. If you have any Ideas, I’m willing to try them.
I know I haven’t been on lately, but I have been having some really bad days again. I promise I will be back soon OK.
Thank you everyone for understanding about my situation. If i can figure out how to sit while blogging and not be in pain, I will be back I promise.
I am sitting here tonight in severe pain, where I can barely feel my legs and feet they are in so much pain, numb, and swollen, along with everything else. So I decided to research my injuries and what I was told I had and it fits to a tee, exactly what I am going through. I printed it, so I can show my doctor on Tuesday. I found the information on this website through e-how.com. I knew I wasn’t going crazy. Gee, and Workman’s Comp wanted me to settle, are they joking. Well, I am certainly not laughing at all.
So I started working on some more photos yesterday for my book. While I was working on them, I have learned some new things from playing around with my photos.
So! You know when you take a Landscape or Portrait photo, and you find that the picture is either sideways, or upside down, (Joking) LOL, if that really happens. Anyway, I had some photos to rotate and found that you can actually leave them that way or rotate it more and will still look good. For example, I took a Landscape shot of some flowers, and had to rotate them, but instead of rotating to portrait, I rotated them to the left and they still look pretty good. I also learned that you can’t always get away with cropping photos, otherwise you kill the mood and the setting on the shot, so that varies on the photo. I have to admit my software Microsoft Digital Image is a great program and best investment I made to.
Here is an example of a photo I rotated the opposite of the shot I took in Landscape view. I rotated it twice to the left.
First of all I don’t know how she thinks that water is a public right to steal it. Water is free when it is in its natural habitat, then they take it, bottle it, and sell for more than it is worth (free). Secondly, I don’t know how she thinks that water will fill back up naturally by itself, when, even as much rain that we have had the streams and rivers are still either dry, or low, and even the lakes are losing water to. Is this what they literally call corporate greed. We can buy a Brita water filter and put water in it and it costs less than what we pay to buy a bottle of water, and makes for less garbage to. Then she says that she is paying all these costs to distribute the water to sell, when in fact the water is still free no matter how you look at it. So basically we are paying almost the same amount that she states they pay to bottle the water at 3.71 cents. Now how do we see this as either being fair or good. They keep doing this and there will not be any water left at all, and wont need to worry about production, storage and any other cost for them to distribute water. Tap water is free, all you have to do is pay your water bill. So, to figure in the cost of a bottle of water, take the price of the water and add that to equal your water bill and see how many bottles of water you get compared to free tap water. So, for example a big bottle of water here is anywhere from $1.49-$2.00 and a small bottle is $.99 cents plus tax depending on whether they have it on sale. So let’s take 1.49 cents and I will use an example of my water bill which is usually 12$- 20$ every 3 months, depending. So how many bottles would you have bought in 3 months compared to having your free water at home and only paying to use it every 3 months when the water bill comes in. Now, at least here where I live it is every 3 months.
So Nestle, all I have to say is no matter what you say or how you say it, it all boils down to that drinking tap water is a lot cheaper than buying water that is free until you steal it and sell it for more than it is worth.
I will say one thing, you go girl, she is one tough cookie this girl, who did the interview . Maybe if we stop buying the water, they might think twice about stealing it, and selling it. By the way, I want to leave you with this little tidbit for Nestle. Now she mentioned in the interview about recycling the bottles. Well, the only recycling most people do, is throwing their bottles on the ground instead of the garbage, so you are not only trying to promote water, you are definitely promoting littering while you’re at it.
I told you, I shouldn’t have gotten started on this conversation, because I will speak my mind.
Welcome back and following me on my walk up to Batu Caves.
Below is the the statue of Lord Murugan, found at the entrance of the steps; stands at 40m tall which is considered as the tallest statue of Lord Murugan in the world. This massive statue is a master piece of Indian sculptors.

I picked up this envelope in the mail today. It said it was from Valerie L. It was addressed to Al. When he got home I handed it to him. It took him fifteen minutes to open it but he did it. There was a very pretty card and two magnets, one for him and one for me. Thank-you so much Valerie.
It's important not to live your life by others, live it by what you believe is right for you.
Plenty of people will try to tell you what job you should be doing and how you should live your life. From now on, you must take control.
Redundancy can make you feel out of control and the way to get it back is for you to take ownership of the situation.
I started working on my photos for my book, in my software Microsoft Digital Image Suite and I played with only color, exposure, contrast, level, and exposure and lighting. What a difference I noticed, because the first camera I ever had, made the photos look like they had a lot of noise in them and they were like very dull, and spotty, like when you watch a channel on television that has a bad connection with snow. So far I only got one folder done, out of a million, LOL (Joking) and still have a lot more to go. Oh sorry, I forgot to take the date off the photo.
I know this is off topic but I saw this link and wanted to share with you because, I hate that Microsoft changed to Skype, because now you can’t log in and it tells you that you have the wrong email or password. It basically messed everything up. I like windows live messenger better. They have done it for windows 7 already.
I am starting back to working on my books I started and I am also going to do some photo story videos, that one of my friends inspired me to do with my dreams and more. They will be posted on YouTube.
Also still working on tagging posts and visiting everyone’s blog, so have patience. Thank you
Notice that book on the picture, Best Ghost stories, I have that book. I bought it in Williamsburg, VA
I wanted to share this with you because I happened to stumble upon this really cool program called Silk Generative Art. It’s awesome. I created these cool drawings and now I am addicted to it. All I have to say is anyone who loves art should try this. They also have the app in the iTunes store for iPad and iPhone to. Here is a link to check it out. http://weavesilk.com
So here are some of my Generative Art I did with Silk.
You know they said it would get better before it got worse, they lied. This will be going 8 times now my neck has locked up and every time it gets worse and worse. My body feels like a 10 ton truck ran me over, I am sitting here drinking some Herbal tea to see if I can go back to sleep. I really cannot take this anymore. Would anyone call me a baby if I said I can’t stand the pain, because right now it is so excruciating from my neck right down to my feet, that I can barely move. I have a Dr. Appt in the morning and I will be like a walking zombie, because it’s now 2:15 am. I want to go back to that nice spa bath again. LOL. Oh!! and still waiting for the Dr. to get Authorization for the surgery, which I hope will be really soon.
I got to say to, that out of 5 doctors that I have seen this doctor is the only doctor that saw what my doctors have seen in the MRI‘S and EMG’S. Because one doctor said he wouldn’t do the surgery because the damage is to extensive, the second Dr said he didn’t see anything wrong, the third and fourth Dr’s both said it wont help even if they do the surgery. But if I don’t do this then where am I going to be if this keeps happening. I am to the point where I need help cleaning house, have to do grocery shopping online, it is very hard for me to drive. Basically if I sit, stand walk, or sleep I can feel the pressure pushing on my neck and it is effecting everything else.
This was one of my first posts when I started blogging. Now the reason why I am bringing this up, is because yesterday I watched this girl throw a glass Snapple bottle out of her car onto the ground in the parking lot. Right after she left a car pulled in and almost ran the bottle over. I cannot understand why people just have no sense of doing the right thing.
What really annoys me the most is that they are adults and supposed to know better. Our kids see you do it, they will do it.
Do people have that much disregard for our planet that they just do not care what they do. Like the fact that when I went to sit at the park, I had noticed someone had thrown a park bench into the river. Really??? Is any of this necessary. It really disgusts me that people can be that ignorant.
Saying Goes ( Do Unto Others As They Do Unto You) That is not a literal term you know. Which means that if one person does something, that doesn’t mean you have to follow their lead, or getting back at someone either…
If any one likes to watch ghost stories and war movies. I recommend these movies to watch. Now, I am not a big fan of war movies, but this movie was excellent. If you are one of those that can not watch ghost movies, I suggest watching at your own risk, because this movie exceeds every other ghost movie I have seen.
Like I said these movies are true stories. So last night I was flipping through On Demand movies to watch and I found this movie called Ghost of Goldfield, and The Ascent. Anyway, The Ghost of Goldfield is about a hotel located in Goldfield, Nevada and there are five students who go to this hotel to help this student do a thesis for her Psychology class. This girl looks like the dead ghost of Elizabeth, the bartender looks like the guy Elizabeth had an affair with, one of the other kids, look like Elizabeth’s husband, also the girl who is doing her thesis is the younger version of her grandmother who betrayed Elizabeth by telling her husband about the affair she had and that the baby was not his. It gets really ugly. The Ascent is a true story and it’s based on Prisoners of War with the Germans, British, and Africans. This was an excellent movie to.
Back in those days Goldfield was very well-known for their gold and then the town died after this happened at the hotel. Now in the movie The Ascent, I am curious about something that I had noticed and that was that the prisoners shirts had a dark patch on the back, does anyone know what that meant.
How to Get More Traffic. I was reading this article and I thought it was pretty interesting. As long as I have been blogging, I still learn new things everyday.
I know it has been awhile since I have been on my blog. So I am not only trying to visit everyone’s blog and while I am doing that, I am finding that some of my followers either moved or don’t blog anymore. So I am cleaning house at the same time. When I visit their blog the page is empty, so I don’t think anyone wants to go to an empty blog right.
I forgot to mention that I will be off my blog for two days, it’s my birthday and my sister made special plans for us. From August 6th to 7th. I will see everyone when I get back.
So as you know I am back. One of my followers from quirkybooks asked me what I did for my birthday. Well my sister planned the best birthday present ever. It was a day at the spa, with a hot mineral bath, massage, steam room. Then we went to lunch. She made a delicious homemade birthday cake . The next day went clothes shopping and got a new wardrobe from Peter Harris Clothes - http://www.peterharrisclothes.com/.
This store is a lot like a marshalls store, with very good prices on everything.
If I won money to build my dream home. My home would have a porch/deck, a fire-place, a swimming pool and a jacuzzi to, and most of all walk in closets. Also my house would be on a quiet tree-lined street.

Not being able to work, and do the things I enjoy
Other than that I am going crazy

Willow Warbler (Phylloscopus trochilus). Not the best shot of a Willow Warbler, I'll agree, but it's about the best I've managed. This from a bedroom window, through the somewhat grimy double glazing.
Hey Stephen, that is a great shot, I love it.
On my way to a small church I had to pass in front of Newton Kyme Hall - thought with a quick snap. The wall in the immediate foreground forms a Ha-Ha keeping, in this case, sheep from getting onto the lawn. From the hall the Ha-Ha gives the appearance of a continuation of the lawn into the fields - a bit like an infinity pool effect.
Whoopee! New garden tick - well it flew the garden into a field where the farmer has been harvesting spuds. I'm pretty sure this is a Ring-necked Parrot (I'm happy to be corrected on that). Common-ish down South in the UK but not so many up here in Yorkshire, though they have been seen.
Oh, yes I will! .... I'm sure this defensive strategy must be the undoing of many a squirrel - but not enough to keep the practice out of the gene pool.
I haven't seen a squirrel in the garden for a few months now, so, while it's a pleasure to seem them, I'll have to keep an on on the bird feeder because these critters can empty it faster than anything else.
