UPDATES: I have decided to stay away from care2 until all bugs, glitches, slow downs and most of all, THE BAD FLASHING ADS EVEN IN SPANISH, are away from c2. You can find me on Facebook every day now until I find a job. Feb. 06, 2009.-
PER REQUESTED, I AM ALLOWING COMMENTS AGAIN BUT BUSY DELETING ALL FWDs FROM MY NM.
My dear friends, I was on the road with some buddies over Holy Week/Semana Santa 2008. I have disabled comments and probably will hide profile to STOP NMs for a while as well as I can hardly ever catch up now.
Please, refrain from only sending me FWDs. I already had to delete some "friends" who never sent me a hello but sent many fwds, sometimes daily! Let's all take the time to be FRIENDS...not just another name on a list.
Thanks for understanding and most of all for RESPECTING my wishes.
Please, NO MORE FRIEND REQUESTS OR GROUP INVITES without an intro first. (GOES FOR BOTH CASES!) IF I GET EITHER WITHOUT YOU READING THIS, IT WILL GET DELETED. SORRY!
MAY 2008 BE A GREAT YEAR FOR YOU AND ME!!!
Think on These Things:
Whatsoever things are true,
Whatsoever things are honorable,
Whatsoever things are just,
Whatsoever things are pure,
Whatsoever things are lovely,
Whatsoever things are of good report;
If there be any virtue,
And if there be any praise,
Think on these things.
Philippians 4 | Source: The Bible (King James Version)
Prayer for Divine Guidance:
Open my lips, O Lord,
and my mouth shall proclaim your praise.
Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and renew a right spirit within me.
Cast me not away from your presence
and take not your holy Spirit from me.
Give me the joy of your saving help again
and sustain me with your bountiful Spirit.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.
Lord God, almighty and everlasting Father, you have brought
us in safety to this new day: Preserve us with your mighty
power, that we may not fall into sin, nor be overcome by
adversity; and in all we do, direct us to the fulfilling of your
purpose; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
- Psalms 51

Battle of the Brains ... or lack there of
Thank you all who took the time to send me a testy, comment, message, green star, e-card for my 39th birthday (2007)! You have no idea how much I appreciate it!
I had an awesome day with family and close friends on my day. Two cakes, drinks of many kind (even Agua de Jamaica which I enjoy) and my favorite music and food! Trinidadian! Main dish was Roti with Curry meat. Music was Calypso, Soca, Pan Steel, Steel band and you get the idea...all Trinidad! It's music that really gets me moving inside and out!
I had edited this earlier but apparently c2 messed up and it was deleted so now it's late and I am tired so will continue next week when I am online again. (c2 I hate you for having me loose a VERY LONG edit!!!).
Have a Blessed week everyone!
Please visit this group (women only):
I am SORRY but I had to drop from many groups since I only have internet access on weekends. However, I may return to some groups at a later time... Also, NO MORE FRIENDS REQUESTS WITHOUT AN INTRO FIRST. I now have a somewhat big friend's list but not enough time to communicate. I love the testies and comments and green stars like we all do but I would also like to be able to call you MY FRIEND. I am all for real friendships. Which brings me to NO MORE group invites please. I love you all and have a hard time saying NO...therefore I end up in too many groups which I can't really even be active due to time consuming, etc. Hope you understand.
WHAT'S UP WITH ALL THE RUDENESS, MEMBER SUSPENSIONS AND PLAIN NEGATIVE ATTITUDE ON CARE2? WHEN WILL IT STOP?
I would like to THANK ALL of you for your generosity with green stars, testimonials, comments and messages... but most of all, for your friendship and for caring about Earth!
I am humbled by all the kindness (thanks for the lovely comments!!!)...
I was traveling with my immediate family (dad, his wife, my 2 younger sisters) and 3 of my friends to a magical eco-adventure thru La Gran Sabana (www.lagransabana.com) in Venezuela from March 31st thru April 7th, 2007. Easter Sunday I spent resting at home, having visiting older sister and her husband for hamburgers, and back to work on Monday. (Look at photo album)

The Power of One
One SONG can spark a moment
One FLOWER can wake the dream
One TREE can start a forest
One BIRD can herald spring
One SMILE begins a friendship
One HANDCLASP lifts a soul
One STAR can guide a ship at sea
One WORD can frame the goal
One VOTE can change a nation
One SUNBEAM lights a room
One CANDLE wipes out darkness
One LAUGH will conquer gloom
One STEP must start each journey
One WORD must start a prayer
One HOPE will raise our spirits
One TOUCH can show you care
One VOICE can speak with wisdom
One HEART can know what is true
One LIFE can make a difference
– You see, it’s up to you.

Preview our Video! Discover Hetch Hetchy
Hetch Hetchy Valley, "Yosemite's twin" in California's Sierra Nevada mountains, now sits hidden under 300 feet of water, as its Tuolumne River was dammed in 1923 to form a reservoir. The Tuolumne River's water can be stored further downstream -- outside Yosemite National Park -- to continue the supply of water to San Francisco, allowing us to reclaim this treasured landscape. Sign the Discover Hetch Hetchy Pledge and join our campaign to restore this natural wonder.

See A Wonder
Peace has to be felt. It is not just a subject of conversation. There is a peace that is fundamental to all of us. Beyond all those little differences we have—skin color, shape of the face, hair, clothes—there is a commonality to all of us. We exist. We are alive.We all thirst for peace. If we really want to see that basic aspiration, we have to put down all the different-colored glasses we wear and see that one fundamental thing that is so simple and so beautiful that exists in the heart of every individual. I’m not talking about creating anything or achieving anything. I’m talking about what already exists within us. You don’t have to get it; it’s already there. It is a matter of discovery.Peace is that joy, that serenity, inside every human being. Peace is not a concept or an idea, but a reality waiting to be discovered, a joy waiting to be felt. Feel peace in your life. Make that the priority in your life. Include peace among those things that are important to you. Make sure that peace is not just a dream, some nice thing that someday you will have, but that peace has become a reality in your life.
Your life, every day that you live it, is a consciously struck note. The instrument you have been given is called life. The possibility of peace dances upon the stage where a heart full of contentment and gratitude can exist. Instead of complaining, “Here are all the things that are wrong” or “I wish things were this way or that way,” how about looking at things the way they are?This existence is your home. Be in that serenity, that contentment, that joy. Don’t let a moment go by. Play this instrument to express that feeling that you are alive—that this means something to you, that it isn’t a story about a person who got everything and kept nothing.Changes happen, and changes will happen, but there is one thing that has never changed: your thirst for peace, your thirst for joy. Ever since you were a little child, it has been there, and for as long as you are alive, it’s going to be there. Fulfill it. Be fulfilled.
I’m talking about really enjoying yourself. I’m talking about waking up in the morning and saying, “What an agenda I have—I get to live today.” You get to exist today. What you are looking for, you already have. If you ever want to see a wonder, I suggest you take a look at yourself. You should be excited that you are alive, despite all the problems you have and all the problems still to come. It isn’t written, “A problem means lack of joy.” If that is your definition, then it is a definition that you have created for yourself. That’s a misunderstanding.Let problems be what they will be. Do your best to fight against them, but that doesn’t mean you have to lack the joy that dwells in your heart. Let there be joy. Let there be that peace in your life every single day.Maharaji- Learning More Self-Discovery -Prem Rawat
