I have stopped listening to the audio recording of Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosserr I simply could not listen to another CD. Not because it was awful, the truth is, it is an interesting and well researched book/CD. “Part investigative journalism, part social criticism,” it was a New York Times bestseller and has been critically acclaimed.
On the back cover, it says ” a fine piece of muckraking, alarming without being alarmist”.. my sensibilities just couldn’t take anymore.. I got up to CD 5 and couldn’t listen to anymore. “the dark side of the all American meal” The laws in Canada are not the same as the USA, never-the-less… There is a lot of common sense, and ah ha moments. If you are not aware of this book, or this author, then if you are interested in something different.. please check it out. I got mine at the public library, I thought it was something else, I really didn’t peruse it… I just thought it was a quick and easy…. NOT!
The news these days has been so repetitive, bleak and often shake your head, sad.. that I thought it would be a change.. NOT!
Time to find a feel good holiday movie to watch, or simply listen to music, if I thought I could go to sleep, wake up and the world would be different… nah.. that is wishful thinking…
Time to find a quiet world, where the air is clear, thoughts are able to chill, and time for a while, floats in a happy space.

Hey, how was your day? Decided to drop in to the Diabetes Fund raiser in Second Life. It is a good cause, of course since I was there, I felt I should look around. Found myself a fun costume.
I wasn’t ready to do a lot, change worry about hair style etc. so you can see, I chose accordingly, the virtual world, is no different from our day-to-day, we still have to deal with choices.
My ribs are showing. You can’t see how hard I had to resist having one of the special Halloween cupcakes I got for hubby. LOL it was hard, but knowing I had just committed to not having dessert for a month, and I mean JUST…. I settled for the plastic spiders on the icing.
I actually took up needle and thread today, instead of applying more bond, or glue to the fabric piece I was working on. I sewed the part of the roof that had not bonded properly to the background material
Now I’m at a dance with some fab music happening while I am busy sharing time with you. Multi-tasking at its best. You can see my avatar is dancing behind Nick, he and his wife Mel are dressed in identical outfits. They are rather clever. The party is just getting underway. Will go and be social. Meanwhile, we are ending October, tomorrow we start into a very busy month… some time soon we hope to here when the operations will be. I do know that we already have a lot of medical appointments set up for November.
Please understand if I am not as regular with my posts…. I will do my best, because sharing time with you all, is good for me. Over the years, you have all inspired me at some time or another. I love the connection we share. You are all the best!!!
Here is looking at you… “wink”

Enjoy your day, let the happy flow into the evening light
Wave as you fly by.
Someone was caught jumping & walking on the bed
that same someone went off on her own
and was seen sitting on a pumpkin in someone’s store
then I was told, she went next door and did the same to the pumpkin there
then later was seen jumping out and hollering Boo, to the passing few
last seen she was fleeing the scene – watch out, she could be somewhere near you.
hiding in waiting to jump out and say BOO

we wander to the right
but get tempted to venture
to the left
we wander right into the fire
where there is nothing to do
but close our eyes
nice and tight
till our thoughts
wander back into the light
only we ourselves can define our reality
PL Precept #11 Always be with God
wherever you wander,
you are NEVER alone
