About Me 58 year old Canadian Russian Jewish Gypsy mom of 2 kids 1 son-inlaw and 1 grandson, and 2 cats. medical librarian/teacher by day. Avid weekend walker. gardener.. cook, bowler. 80's rocker music lover
Had a great, wonderful, loving man in my life but now he is in heaven waiting for me.
Middleage is not all its cracked up to be.
I may not be the finest thing since sliced bread.


I may not be the star of the fantasies You've conjured up in your head.


I may not be the ideal woman of your dreams.


I may not be the one who makes your Toes curl and makes you scream.


I may not say all the things you think I should.


I may not always look or speak the best that I could.


I may not fit the bill or the standards Set by your friends.


But did you ever have an inkling of a thought That I might be a godsend.


Don't you want a woman who'll love you completely A woman who'll sacrifice her all for you ?


Don't you want a woman who'll be faithful A woman who'll always stand by you?


I may not be the cutest woman in the crowd But I am a woman of whom you can be proud.


My intelligence is like a river overflowing and with me there is confidence in knowing.


I will always be there by your side.


I may not be all you said you wanted But don't discard me without much thought.


Don't pass me by because of some image That society has taught.


Get to know the woman in me And take a stand undaunted And eventually you'll come to see I'm everything you never knew you wanted
Love me without fear / Trust me without questioning / Need me without demanding / Want me without restrictions / Accept me without change / Desire me without inhibitions
I thought I would push KIVA too:
I wanted to let you know about Kiva (www.kiva.org), a non-profit that allows you to lend as little as $25 to a specific low-income entrepreneur in the developing world.

You choose who to lend to - whether a baker in Afghanistan, a goat herder in Uganda, a farmer in Peru, a restaurateur in Cambodia, or a tailor in Iraq - and as they repay their loan, you get your money back. Its a powerful and sustainable way to empower someone right now to lift themselves out of poverty.

How Kiva Works=

1) Lenders like you browse profiles of entrepreneurs in need, and choose someone to lend to. When they lend, using PayPal or their credit cards, Kiva collects the funds and then passes them along to one of our microfinance partners worldwide.

2) Kiva's microfinance partners distribute the loan funds to the selected entrepreneur. Often, our partners also provide training and other assistance to maximize the entrepreneur's chances of success.

3) Over time, the entrepreneur repays their loan. Repayment and other updates are posted on Kiva and emailed to lenders who wish to receive them.

4) When lenders get their money back, they can re-lend to someone else in need, donate their funds to Kiva (to cover operational expenses), or withdraw their funds.

So far I have lended money to 77 people.. I try for 2 per month... mostly at 25.00 per each.

some of mine have started to pay back already!

    Photobucket Brandy is on a supplement that has glucosamine, MSM, & chondroitin (it's a powder you put in the food)-the poor girl had a rough life & probably didn't know what carpeting or grass felt like til she was walked at the shelter & when we got her.
