Why Occupy Wall Street Is A Must October 13, 2011

Greedy bankers are running amok on Wall Street and running this country (and the global economy) into the ground.

Dishonest financiers, who took home multi-million dollar salaries and bonuses for ripping off the American people, put politicians in office.

Politicians pay them back by granting them key political appointments ~ effectively putting sly foxes in charge of regulating and overseeing our investments in chicken coops and hen houses.

The wrong people are getting thrown in jail.   Our representatives have forgotten WHO they represent.  It’s time for a change.

It’s time to take back Wall Street for We The People.

Life Hand You Lemons? Write About It! October 13, 2011

Blogging is therapy.

FREE therapy. 

It trains us to focus on THIS moment, recording each  excruciating detail with clarity . . . so we can share it with others in future blog posts.

We learn to transform life’s less than stellar moments into laughter! 

Now, when life hands us lemons, we don’t “Ferget About It!” . . . we write about it.  Instead of collapsing under the weight of the world:

* We meet someone Perfectly Awful & Awfully Perfect  and pay attention to each glorious idiosyncrasy. 

* We observe a poker-face buffoon behaving badly and meet his bluff and bluster ~ Step Away From The Cheese.

* We transform a funereal comedy show into belated laughter ~ I Don’t Like to Speak Ill of the Dead.

Blogging allows us take sour moments (that make us pucker up at their acidity) and lighten them up with laughter.

Always look on the bright side of life . . . you might get a great post out of it!

Aah . . . that’s better!

How about you?  Have you ever turned a sour note into an amusing tale to share with friends and family?
