USA Weekend Paper: In The Journal News Local Paper

I found some interesting articles in this paper. I thought I would share  with everyone, because there are some great tips in here on different things.

1.   5 tips on how to be gorgeous for less $$$ Pad time between your hair appointments (3 times a year, or have an assistant trim your hair at your own risk !!!!

Skip shampooing, or blow drying your hair.

Go off hours – usually they have better prices on certain days, or training sessions (at your own risk).

Don’t color so much  – Only do it a couple of times a year, it’s less expensive.

Grow longer hair, you tend to have to cut short hair more than you do if your hair was longer. Ask your hairdresser. This article was Written By Michelle Meyer.

2.   Little time to work out? You can still stay trim.

Keep eating. Do not skip meals, like me. I tend to do it because of the pain, or I just don’t feel hungry.

No breakfast is the worst breakfast, which I cannot do breakfast to early. I like to eat at around 10-11 AM and have like either toast or cereal.

If it grows on a tree, eat it. When in doubt reach for something that grows on trees. Article Written By McKenna Grant.

3.   Apps can make your life easier.

4.   Go Wild! Go Native!  This one I thought was really interesting, because, no one likes pesky animals and insects in their garden. Well, today we’re going to learn something new about gardening and those pesky animals and insects. So get ready, and ill be back in 5, I have to take a little break. Have some tea and biscuits. LOL. So according to this article, animals, insects, birds, and  squirrels are actually good for your garden. According to what they are saying: Is that a garden that supports wildlife, such as insects, rodents, frogs, lizards and birds. This can be a win win  for you and the animals. She states that, “We’re missing out on the natural piece of life.” She states the key; Is to use native plants to meet the animals needs where they need sunshine to, so keep a nice open area in a sunny spot. She also says, that Cluster trees and large shrubs in layers for nesting and hiding, and water an area of your yard that puddles up perfect for birds and butterflies. The best part is you don’t clean up much because leaf litter is perfect for insects. But as far as deer and rabbits go, the only way they will stay away is if you have plants that are highly scented and fuzzy. But she does say that in the end you will lose some plants.

“Folk Art grew from below. It was a spontaneous, autochthonous expression of the people, shaped by themselves, pretty much without the benefit of High Culture, to suit their own needs. Mass Culture is imposed from above. It is fabricated by technicians hired by businessmen; its audiences are passive consumers, their participation limited to the choice between buying and not buying…. Folk Art was the people’s own institution”………- -Dwight MacDonald

Virginia Legislators Introduce New Anti-Sodomy Law

I agree , but he should also add that any child at that age under shouldn’t allowed to get pregnant either. Beacause their are to many young teens getting pregnant and then they have to abort it and it is not right or fair to that baby either.

Thomas Garrett Jr. has introduced an anti-sodomy law to replace a prior law that was struck down in 2013 that targets sex with individuals below the age of 18. This new and improved morality law could criminalize an array of different forms of consensual relations, including oral sex. I recently wrote a column on the welcomed demise of morality codes in the United States.

100 Word Song – Limelight

polysyllabic profundities

Moon

Like the moon held captive in the night sky,

I am suspended in my reality unable to breathe.

My true freedom is a vague memory.

My personal space exists only in the lens of a camera.

Vague reflections of a life I once had are mirrored in that glass.

All I wanted was to reflect my passion through my art.

Fragmented moments alone are stored deep in memory,

treasured few blinks in time that I can grasp and hold tight.

I envy that moon, alone in the night sky

surrounded by stars unable to bridge the distance.

Solitude escapes me.
