What we should expect from President Trump

President Trump Oval Office Agenda

 

-James Comey resigns or fired from the FBI. Comey did a terrible job investigating Hillary Clinton's emails scandal & he didn't do his job which was to prosecute Clinton.

-Attorney General Loretta Lynch resigns or fired. Loretta Lynch had a meeting with Bill Clinton and they talked about a lot of things more than just about their grand kids & golf. Loretta Lynch & Bill Clinton had a lot to do with Comey not prosecuting Clinton when it was evident that Clinton used classified emails.

-Hillary Clinton will be prosecuted but my fellow Conservatives will not like what I'm about to say. Hillary Clinton was a Senior Citizen when she served as Secretary of State in 2009 in Obama's cabinet (Clinton was 61 to be exact) and Clinton resigned as Secretary of State in 2013 (Clinton was 65 to be exact). Hillary Clinton 68-69 should not have been allowed to run for President with her baggage. Hillary Clinton will most likely avoid a severe punishment that Clinton would have gotten had Clinton have not been a Senior Citizen. The system tend to pardon Senior Citizens guilty of any crime. For example, if a 65 year old man murders someone he will most likely get 20-30 years in jail but if a 25 year old man murders someone he will most likely get life. People may ask why do someone who is 40 years younger who committed the same crime will get life and the Senior Citizen who committed the same crime would get less because Senior Citizens is not thought of as criminals like youngsters who commit criminal acts. Senior Citizens are likely to be pardoned in jail more too and what I mean by that is that Seniors are more likely to be separated from the other inmates than the youngsters. Since Seniors are not meant to live that much longer during sentencing and after their sentencing than youngsters who have a much longer sentencing that's why Seniors are pardoned as well. Clinton could get anywhere from 1-5 years in jail but it's unlikely that Hillary Clinton will serve all 5 years. Yes Clinton and anyone who commit crimes should pay for their crimes, Clinton will most likely pay off a lot of charges that she will face. Clinton's reputation will always be ruined because Clinton took no responsibility for her actions with that being said the Clinton's will always be thought of as a disgrace and Obama will go down in history as the worst president that we ever had.

-It's time to repeal and replace Obamacare.

-Renegotiate the Iran Nuclear deal. We are tired of making Countries prosper at our expense due to our bad deals where we get the worst end of the deals.

-Cut taxes from 35%-15%. People want to be able to afford to stay in their homes and not have to relocate to states where there is little to no state taxes.

-Stop all of the regulations that sending small businesses and big job companies out of the US.

-Completely change Obama's ridiculous executive orders. President Trump knows how to negotiate and get the Senate to get bills passed & and Republicans and Democrats can push aside their petty differences.

-Get rid Common Core out of the school system. Students are graduating high school barely learning how to read and write. Everything is done electronically for them (that's too easy).

-Overturn Roe vs. Wade. Check out this link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NfdRmnT0Weo

-Overturn Same-Sex Marriage. Check out this link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m8CrusikvWo

-Appointing Pro-life Judges. Check out this link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8P8gsI6Yq8

-Enough of Obama's 6 years you can be in College. Not everyone finishes school in 6 years. It takes some people longer. I can vouch for that because it took me 15 years (I took a lot of different routes). School should be affordable and financial aid should be for those who qualify not loans when he or she is over the financial aid limit with Obama's years college rule. 6 year College rule should be changed to as long as it takes for people to earn their college degree.

-Protecting our borders and making the US safe for those who are legally here who come from other countries and make those who are here already who is illegal should earn their stay here in the US by getting their paperwork and their green card.

-Excellent benefits for Military Veterans.

-Excellent healthcare for Senior Citizens.

-Strategically defeating Islamic Terrorism. We ready to wipe out ISIS using excellent strategy.

-Rebuilding highways, bridges, buildings, and fixing roads that are a complete mess.

-Making the inner cities a safe place to live in.

-Jobs, Jobs, and a whole lot of Jobs out there. Too many people who are on welfare and getting food stamps. The jobs are too competitive & not enough jobs are training people to work and become successful.

-Pro-Israel. As Conservative Christians we must stand with Israel. Please check out this link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JhGWshBwHt0

 

Mentioned above are some of the expectations that we expect from President Trump. Let's Keep our President in prayer. People had fault with the 44 Presidents before Trump was elected. We are not going to like every President we have but we need to give our elected President a chance to turn things around. Trump will listen & Trump is our leader. #TrumpPence2016 

Fictional Story: Madeline's Fictional Story

Madeline's Heart Necklace

 
Madeline Stephens is a beautiful brunette hair and blue eyes woman who lives in Bakersfield, CA. Madeline always wears her heart necklace. She never goes anywhere without the heart necklace. Madeline wrote a wonderful fictional story that painted a picture about me & describes who I am as a person. Coming for a person who enjoys blogging fictional stories myself, Madeline have a clever way of writing a fictional story about a blogger. Below you will see in her title A Story of A Blogger.
 
A Story Of A Blogger Fictional Story
 
 
The story portarys an African American or black male who is in his late 30s. This young man have been blogging online for approximately 5 years. Anonymous is what he is known for being because at times he is Anonymous. This young man hardly take credit for anything that he does. The same young black man tries to carry himself in a way that others try to do the same thing. This young man is known for his creativity coming up with really wonderful fictional stories that seem to be more real than fictional have no idea that this fictional story is all about him. Without giving this young man away is the reason why he is remained nameless and Anonymous.
 
Anonymous have 2 blogging websites that he blogs on. Mr. Unpredictable is a "right on the money" way to describe Anonymous because his writing style is exactly unpredictable. With that being said, this young man is really talented by engaging readers and other writers like himself. Anonymous enjoys writing a good ending to stories whether it 's happy endings or not so happy endings. Anonymous is really good at creating characters and their personality and brings out their emotion through his writing whether Anonymous is emotional or non emotional Even-though I'm a lady in this fictional story, Anonymous don't have nay idea that this fictional story is about him. Anonymous can be too unpredictable even for him & he is definitely an independent thinker both under pressure and not under pressure. Anonymous can't help but to be shocked by this fictional story about him. Anonymous tries to get people to showcase their hidden talent like Anonymous is showcasing his hidden talent in the online writing that he does. Anonymous is really effective at using dialogue in his stories (if those stories uses a lot of dialogue) and stories without dialogue too. Anonymous have successfully took writing to a whole new level and made it a form of art. Anonymous know how to really make something that can be a challenge such as writing be a whole lot of fun.  

Tampa Bay Buccaneers What are we doing?

Tampa Bay Buccaneers need an overhaul?

 

I've been a Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan for 17 years now. I've been following the Bucs for over 20 years. For 21 years the Tampa Bay Bucs were underachievers and the losing seasons and really bad records were a reflection of that. The Bucs were laughingstocks since 1976 (the year the Bucs became a franchise). The Bucs didn't start being a good team since the year I graduated from high school which was 19 years ago. The Bucs were a team to beat in 1997-2002 (The Bucs were SuperBowl Champions in 2002). Tony Dungy made the Bucs relevant from 1995-2002 as head coach and Jon Gruden made the Bucs SuperBowl Contenders his very first season as head cooach. The Bucs made the playoffs as a Wildcard under Gruden 2 times since they won the SuperBowl (2005 and 2007). During the span of 2009-2016 the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have hired and fired 3 head coaches and have recently hired another coach to be the Bucs new head coach Dirk Koetter being the Bucs 4th head coach hire. The Bucs has had only one winning season with a record of (10-6) in 2010 (missed the playoffs) under then head coach Raheem Morris. As a fan, Bucs fans might be panicking over the different coaching changes Raheem Morris (2009-2011), Greg Schiano (2012-2013), Lovie Smith (2014-2015).

 

I can honestly see it if the Bucs owner was firing coaches that he hired if the Bucs were trying to hire elite coaches who have been proven successful with other teams that they coached like Mike Holmgren, Bill Cowher, or Tom Coughlin (nothing against Lovie Smith because he did an excellent job as head coach of the Chicago Bears even took them to a SuperBowl in 2006 until he was fired). The Bucs firing coaches are for reasons that is puzzling to me and I know other Bucs fans can kind of agree. In my humble opinion, when you are firing a coach or coaches because you think that your offensive coordinator, defensive coordinator, or assistant coach is being offered or sought for coaching vacancies for other teams after the regular season is over that means it's time for you to wish them success elsewhere. The greatest of coaches see their offensive coordinators, defensive coordinators, or assistant coaches being offered coaching vacancies elsewhere and those coaches can afford to wish them well because they know it's all apart of the business. Why hold on to anyone or firing someone because you feel that you're at risk of losing someone you really like. Correct me if I'm wrong but sometimes you have to gamble. I personally felt that the Bucs should have given Lovie Smith one more season as head coach. When the Bucs went (2-14) in 2014 the Bucs had Josh McCown & Mike Glennon as their Quarterbacks and there is a reason why we only won 2 games and we had the #1 draft pick too. Last year the Bucs went (6-10) and #1 draft pick Jameis Winston had a great rookie year. We were (8-24) in 2 seasons with Lovie Smith as head coach and Lovie Smith was fired before he really had a chance to help the Bucs improve. To sum up the Bucs team in the past 7 years is that the Bucs as a team is looking like the victims to other teams like the Bucs used to before the Bucs started beating teams (which has been a while). Really good teams that have had bad losses to mediocre teams at best is looking forward to playing the Bucs so that they can take out their frustration by whupping the Bucs. The Bucs D is atrocious and they can't seem to cover no one defensively. The Bucs D is soft coverage & often missed assignments on receivers which was not the case when Tony Dungy or Jon Gruden was the Bucs head coach. I'm a faithful Bucs fan and I will never be a bandwagon. In fact, I have 2 favorite teams (The Bucs and the Titans) and I may like a 3rd favorite team at some point. When I'm looking at what we are doing as a team hiring and firing coaches and none of these coaches are elite head coaches I'm starting to shake my head and wonder what are we doing?

Hillary Clinton's Health Scare

Hillary Clinton's Health

 

Hillary Clinton has kept her health a secret. No matter what Clinton says she has not got over losing to President Obama for the Democrat nominee in 2008. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ljDreFox2Yw Hillary Clinton has fell on an airplane (not hard), fell and had a concussion (where she had to wear thick glasses for a month because of double vision), and nearly collasped during 9/11 Memorial of those who have loved ones and family members who lost their lives' during the terrorist attacks.

 

 

 

 

Clinton has lied about her emails, lied about Benghazi, and lied about her health. Clinton has even lied to cover up her lies. I'm not a fan of Clinton but in all honesty and fairness it's not logical for a candidate who have all of this baggage going into the debates (the first one a week from tonight) who is not well. Clinton refuses to step down and that is her choice but she needs to start thinking about the fact that her emails, Benghazi, and her health will be with her throughout the debates and after the debates.

 

 

I like to see a good debate and I'm often reminded of the Bush, Jr. and Gore debate back in 2000. Those 3 debates were excellent. It took about 4 recounts to decide after what had happened in Florida.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xezR5x8exfg  I honestly, would prefer to see debates like the Bush, Jr. and Gore debate. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TMdjUsDf0U4  This will be the first debate and I've been watching these presidential debates since 1988, that one candidate have so much baggage going into the debates in Hillary Clinton that I have ever seen. It might not be a bad idea to let Senator Elizabeth Warren and Donald Trump debate each other because it reminded me on Bush, Jr. and Gore in 2000. This is just my opinion and if y'all agree or disagree with me that's fine. I just want to say be respectful with your comments either way. Just My 2 Cents.

 

 

 

Kevin Durant signing with the Golden State Warriors

 

Kevin Durant decides to sign with the Golden State Warriors

 

 

Kevin Durant has been with the Seattle Super Sonics for a year and the Oklahoma City Thunder for 8 years when they moved to Oklahoma City. Durant was the #2 overall pick in the 2007 NBA draft with the Seattle Super Sonics. Kevin Durant has experienced some highs and lows in his NBA career. Durant has always been loyal to the fans and to Oklahoma City but when Kevin Durant became a free agent Durant had a choice to either stay in Oklahoma City or go to Golden State. Durant decided for him that the perfect basketball move was to sign with the Golden State Warriors. The media went back from a tweet that Durant tweeted to Lebron James about not teaming up with a team that you're trying to beat when LeBron James announced back in 2010 that LeBron is taking his talents to South Beach in Miami. Thunder fans are thinking that Durant is guilty of doing the same thing by signing with the Warriors. The Warriors already have a championship caliber team in place, completely different case of scenario because Dwayne Wade recruited LeBron James and Chris Bosh to come to Miami to be the big 3 when it came to the leading scorers on the Miami Heat. LeBron couldn't convince Bosh or Wade to come to Cleveland because the Cleveland Cavaliers didn't have the superstars other than LeBron at the time either.

 

Thunder fans must know how it feel to have a super star break their heart like that because Cavaliers remember going through the same thing 6 years ago. Fans have to understand from an NBA basketball player point. The Thunder always had a good starting 5 but every time Durant and his Thunder got knocked out of the Western Conference Finals by a more talented team the question is/was would Durant ever win an NBA Championship. Durant was tired of coming up short and the media questioning can his Oklahoma City Thunder rebound and be the title contenders with the scoring duo of Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. In my humble opinion, the reason why the Oklahoma City Thunder blew their 3-1 series lead against the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference finals was because of lack of depth. Durant and Westbrook was logging heavy minutes because the Thunder lacked some key scorers that help left their bench to help take the load off of Durant and Westbrook which at times I felt that Westbrook played like a true point guard and played a shooting guard trapped in a point guard's body hoisting up too many jump shots. Durant decided to go on a team he wanted to beat (that being the Warriors) that was a championship caliber team because of his team (that was the Oklahoma City Thunder) lack of depth so Durant don't always have to carry the scoring load. The Warriors are very stacked as a team, play really well together as a team so that every one will get their shots and points. Durant gives the Warriors another scorer that will help take the pressure off of Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green. As a fan you never like to see your favorite superstar of your team go to the team you want to so beat but it's part of the business. If Durant becomes a free agent again just maybe Durant may come back to OKC if and only if OKC have a championship caliber team.

American Idol Season 15 Farewell Season

Trent Harmon vs. La'Porsha Renae battled it out last night for American Idol Season 15 Farewell Season.

 

 

The last season of American Idol did not disappoint last night. In all 15 Seasons of American (Some seasons I missed), I can honestly say that I'm excited for whoever win on American Idol Farewell Season tonight. No matter who win the state of Mississippi will represent because both contestants is from Mississippi. The show produced a winner from my state of Connecticut last year in Season 14 when Nick Fradiani won (The first time that had ever happen) & has always had winners from the south and a lot stories of the different contestants humble upbringing and being raised in single parent homes. The show even had some funny really terrible auditions but the show has also produced some good battles of the title as well. Although this show is wrapping up it's final chapter, I am glad to say I watched American Idol and tuned in whether I was at home or out of state. AI will be missed & hopefully Fox will come up with something new to replace AI.

 

 

Super Bowl 50 Broncos 24 Panthers 10

 

 

 

I've listened at how the different Sportscasters on the radio & on television predicting a Panthers Super Bowl win because everyone saw how the Panthers breezed through the regular season with a (15-1) record respectively. The Panthers breezed through the Seahawks 31-24; the Panthers were up 31-0 at halftime & the Seahawks outscored the Panthers 24-0 in the 2nd half to make it respectable. We can't forget how the Panthers throttled the Cardinals 49-15 and we were already to crown the Panthers Super Bowl Champions before the Super Bowl even began at Levi Stadium in Santa Clara (home of the San Francisco 49ers stadium) because the Broncos barely got by the Steelers 23-16 and the Patriots 20-18. Then we forget how the Broncos defense (ranked #1) played a big part in stopping teams in close games.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cam Newton was taking selfies on the sidelines & all of a sudden reality sunk in. The Broncos tenacious D had Cam Newton running for his life as the Broncos D sacked Newton 7 times and the Broncos D forced 3 Panthers turnovers. If you were to tell me that the Denver Broncos were to dominate the way that they did and hold the Carolina Panthers to 10 total points I would have thought no way. The Panthers getting routed 24-10 was a good learning lesson for them. Panthers fans your Panthers will be back here and contending for more Super Bowls to come. It takes a young team to learn from a loss and mature like Panthers. I have the utmost respect for Peyton Manning winning his 2nd Super Bowl. If Peyton Manning has played his last NFL football game at 39 then he will leave the game on top with 2 Super Bowl rings (1 with the Colts & 1 with the Broncos) tied with his little brother Eli Manning (2 with the New York Giants). Congratulations to the Denver Broncos for winning the Super Bowl & Congratulations to Von Miller for being the Super Bowl's Most Valuable Player (MVP). Gary Kubiak & Wade Phillips had a well designed game plan on how to stop Cam Newton & the Panthers #1 ranked Offense and it worked to perfection.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Donald Trump skipping Fox News Republican debate

 

 

 

Donald Trump says that he will skip tomorrow's Fox news Republican debate because of Megyn Kelly. For those of you who are a big Megyn Kelly fan or who are not a big fan of Kelly's, Kelly mentioned to Trump by saying, "Trump you refer women that you don't like as fat, unattractive, and ignorant." Trump referred his comment back when Donald Trump and Rosie O'Donnell had their spat when Rosie O'Donnell was on The View back then. Rosie O'Donnell was basically calling Trump a macho jerk and was imitating how he talked and said that Trump have fake hair. Trump like Trump has always has done when someone insults him Trump responded by saying that Rosie O'Donnell is an unattractive woman and that Rosie O'Donnell is fat and ignorant not all women. Megyn Kelly mentioned how Trump referred to Carly Fiorina as looking unattractive and boring. Fiorna responded by saying, "America understands how Trump feels about women." What I got from Fiorina's statement is that everyone understand the difference when someone is being insulted because of their gender in Trump's case (being referred to as a male chauvinist) and when someone is being insulted because they know that he or she in Fiorina's case (being a big threat in the Republican party) which is what Trump meant when he said that Fiorina is looking unattractive and boring. Trump know that Fiorina is a threat to the Republican party and that is why he didn't insult her the way he insulted Rosie O'Donnell. Wow, I said a mouth full.

 

With Trump skipping tomorrow's Fox News debate, Cruz could decide to either tell his well designed plan on what he would do if he is president or he could focus on attacking Trump in Trump's absence on the Fox News debate. I honestly think that in my humble opinion, that it's best that all of the candidates should really focus on what their plan would be if they were president because that is what the Republicans, Democrats, Independents, Undecided, etc., want to hear. Attacks are turnoffs especially when candidates is not talking about their well thought provoking plan on how he or she is going to make things better. Just My 2 Cents!

 

 

 

 

Some Overrated Jobs

Advertising Accountant Executive

Stock Broker

Architect

Psychiatrist

Management Consultant

Attorney

Surgeon

Physician

Flight Attendant

Advertising Agency Executive

Bookkeeper (It all depends on where you are working at)

Events Coordinator

Public Relations Manager

Broadcaster

Computer Programmer

 

Wow, I was surprised at some of the jobs that were considered overrated. I think I was surprised by Architect, Bookkeeper, Flight Attendant, Broadcaster, & Surgeon the most. These jobs are viewed as overpaid because the work that is put in these jobs is not the same like most hardworking jobs, therefore the income is substantial. People who are head boss over these jobs, people tend to view them kind of people as arrogant. In my humble opinion, some people that are doing these positions are not arrogant at all they are just people that happened to be blessed to be promoted to a lot of the different head positions. "The more we help people who are starting from the bottom & who are working their way up top the better we will be." Those are the kinds of people who I want to be associated with. I hope all of my readers that are doing these kinds of jobs above are inspired by the quote mentioned above. Most importantly "never forget who your real friends are" I hope that all of my readers enjoy!

Word of the Day: Don't worship worldly things

Sports car

Big Manison

Silver, Gold, and Money

 

As an old fashioned person, I'd rather be a blessing to others having alot of money than keep alot of money & just spending it only on myself. We as Christians should not act Holly when we come into money or blessed with money. What mean by acting Hollywood is being caught up into worldy things such as the following mentioned above: fine cars, big mansions, silver, gold, money, etc. That kind of stuff is nice but it's not the ultimate reason why we are blessed. We are truly blessed when we are a blessing others with what we have. A good Bible Verse Luke 12:13-31 which will come from the King James Version. Christians are encouraged to read this Bible Verse from the translation that they have. This is a good word & a good message for those who think that they are high and mighty and think they can be successful without the Lord's help. 

 

Luke 12:13-31King James Version (KJV)

"13 And one of the company said unto him, Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me.

14 And he said unto him, Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you?

15 And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.

16 And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully:

17 And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?

18 And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.

19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.

20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?

21 So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.

22 And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on.

23 The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.

24 Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?

25 And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit?

26 If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?

27 Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

28 If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?

29 And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind.

30 For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.

31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you."

Having Faith In Our Prayers Poem

In the rough and tough times

We have to be able to understand

Why we need to be patient

Why we need to trust the Lord

Why we need to have an open mind

'Cause it's during those times

When our faith is being tested

Wondering why disappointments come our way

We may not always understand

But we have to trust the Lord's plan

In order for us to prosper in our lives'

No matter how much the enemy tries to cause strife

No one said that things would be easy

The great thing about it we can always pray

'Cause the Lord hears our prayers

We may not always think he always answer them

Realizing we have to believe

That there is nothing too hard for God

He is always on time and he never fails

Our faith should never waver

When we pray

We should be grateful each and every day

For the Lord's many blessings

Even when the Lord uses unlikely people who are like angels

People who we wouldn't expect

The Lord proving to us how he can change the coldest of hearts

And showing us how he works in mysterious ways

Our faith should never waver

When we have faith in our Prayers

My thoughts on the debates

 

 

On Saturday I had a chance to glimpse at some of the Democratic Party debate in Des Moines, IA. I had a chance to see Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, and Martin O'Malley go at it. These debates are like the preseason in sports. Everyone know that we won't know who have the edge until we listen to the primaries when the candidates campaign in the key battle ground states & in both the blue liberal states & red conservative states (which is like the regular season in sports). Clinton has the experience, Sanders is an outsider and O'Malley is unknown. We all like to read about stories how some people we don't know wind up surprising every one, we enjoy stories like that. I feel that Sanders can surprise people in the Democratic party. Sometimes it's not always about "people who know your name" like with Hillary Clinton being so well known & being another Clinton running for president. It's something about Sanders that I see in Sanders that Sanders have potential to give front runner Clinton "a run for her money."

 

Meanwhile, we have a stacked Republican Party debate with the different candidates trying to earn that spot for the nominee to try to be President. I have not been able to watch any of the debates on because I don't get them on TV. I only have basic cable. However, I am able to hear the sound bites from the debates on the news. The 2 outsiders in the Republican Party being Donald Trump & Ben Carson has provided such a spark. What I mean by that, is that Trump can take criticism and he can also give criticism that is just Trump's style whether you like him or dislike him. Carson just shut you up in a cool & quiet way with just a few words. People respect Trump & Carson's style which is different from each other yet provide enough spark that Marco Rubio is inching up in a distance 3rd place and Ted Cruz in 4th place. When the primary kicks off in February of 2016 we will known who has a chance at winning the nominee for both the Democratic Party & the Republican Party. The winner from each party will debate each other and the winner will be our President (like in sports the winner will be champion). I've been noticing something out Carly Fiorina, that this woman can be a Wildcard (someone who comes out of no where and surprises everyone). Fiorina is a strong woman who is fiery & outspoken and what I noticed about Fiorina how direct (get straight to the point) with people Fiorina is when they ask her questions about the issues. Fiorina in my humble opinion is an outside threat to her party & should not be underestimated. Fiorina kind of reminds me of both Michele Bachmann & Sarah Palin. Those were just my observations & 2 cents and if you agree with me that's fine and if you disagree with me that's fine too, then we can agree to disagree but lets be just respectful.

 

Some planners

Planners do a lot perhaps more than people think.

Wedding Planner

Activity Planner

Event Planner

Party Planner

Game Planning (Soccer Drill)

Vacation Budgeting, Planning, and Savings

Catering

Event Photography

 

 

Probably one of the most underrated thing that anyone does where people are attending events is those who are in charge with the different of all the planning. When you have more than one people doing the planning, then it makes his or her job a whole lot easier.  In my humble opinion, planners deserve a lot more credit than they get just a "thank you" but if you're a planner, then know what it is like when it seem like everything is all on you to make an event, party, wedding, etc., how the pressure can be on you. I hope that all of my readers enjoy!

Reward & Punishment

There will be consequences for our actions whether good or bad.

 

Top learning experience #3 1992- A lesson in not plagiarizing

 

I am 13 going 14 and I went to a private school way out in Newington on the New Britain line. The name of the private school was Emmanuel Christian Academy. I wrote stories for an English teacher and averaged 84, the lowest being a 68 and the highest being 90 I do believe. I've always done my own work and was NEVER EVER known for plagiarizing a story before so what did I do? I did something that I don't normally do in that case which was a bone-headed move on my part. I plagiarized this one story for my English class and boy was my teacher upset with me. The teacher knew I had already gone home so she called my mom and told her that I plagiarized a story that I had written. I knew I was in trouble but what I didn't know was how serious was the crime. Anyway, my mom was so upset with me that she grounded me for a month (I couldn't watch TV for a month). I went to my English teacher’s class after the incident & boy was she very irate with me. My English teacher face was really red. My English let me have it with her harsh words and I deserved every bit of the tongue lashing.

My English teacher said, “You got one nerve pulling a stunt like that! Do you know that you could be expelled for this?” I’m not going to expel you for this because that would be too easy!”

I responded, “My mom grounded me for this.”

My English teacher answered, “For how long?”

I replied, “I can’t watch TV for a month.”

My English teacher angrily said, “Good now write your paper over!”

 

The teacher knew that I was not that kind of student so she made me write my story all over again and guess what? I got an 87 on this story (not plagiarizing) sometimes when you do bone-headed things you usually have a reason for it,  my reason was simple I wanted to be caught and severely punished and I had absolutely both happen to me all in one day. My teacher was convinced to give me 1 point to pass her class (63 which is an F but the 64 gave me a D) so I wouldn't stay back 2 times. I would be 14 going into the 8th grade. I learned a very valuable lesson in not plagiarizing and NEVER EVER plagiarized on any work that I had done for a class ever again.

 

Top favorite surprise that I've experienced #2 In the Spirit of giving 1992

Ms. Krabappel gives Bart an extra point (grade goes from a 59 to a 60) to give Bart a D- so that Bart would pass to the 5th grade. My story is similar to Bart's.

 

I remember taking a final exam for my English class at private school. I was 14 and I worked really hard on my final exam and passed it. The exams were graded and my English teacher had all of the students’ final exam grades on it and showed us what our final grade would be. Everyone had passed. A few fellow classmates had got the D that he or she needed to pass so that they would not have to repeat a grade. I had like a 63 which was about 1 point shy of a D (63 and below was an F). My English teacher had just gotten married during early spring of 1992. Every one appeared to be either going to the 8th grade or 9th grade because the classroom was set up for 7th & 8th graders to be in the same classroom. My teacher had asked for all of her students to sign her yearbook. I remember how far I've come since the incident when I plagiarized one of the stories I had wrote for her. I remember how severely grounded I was but you could tell that my English teacher had such a forgiving heart & how much she cared about me to give me another chance.  Anyway, I had a chance to sign my teacher's yearbook back in May of 1992. What I said was heartfelt and I even remember asking her if she could please give me 1 point that would give me the D. Mind you she could have said no and I would have had to repeat the 7th grade and I would have been 14 in the 7th grade instead the 8th grade. My English teacher wrote a note to me, which I was hesitant at first to read but finally read what it had said. My teacher said to me "Paul you have a wonderful summer and yes you get the extra point I have changed your grade!" My grade went from a 63 to a 64 to give me the D and I passed to the 8th grade. I was surprised to read that note that said that but I was also relieved and grateful!

 

Mentioned above was my reward & punishment example that I've experienced. Whatever we do whether good or bad there will always be consequences for actions both good & bad. There is always an important lesson to learn whenever we mess up & the reward will always come when we do the right thing. I hope my example of reward & punishment encourages those who are in the same situation when choosing between right & wrong. I hope that all of my readers enjoy!

 

 

Todd McNeil vs. Andre (Killer) Morris Heavyweight Championship (Rounds 1-5)

Brooklyn, NY (This is Andre Morris rough neighborhood.)

Scranton, PA (This is where Todd McNeil is originally from and grew up here until he was 13 years old.)

Philadelphia, PA (This is the neighborhood where Todd McNeil moved to from Scranton when he was in the 8th grade and all through high school. Vinnie his trainer used to come in this neighborhood to teach Todd McNeil how to fight.)

 

Andre Morris grew up in Brooklyn, NY where he was known as killer because of his killer instincts. He knew where to hit people where it really hurts and would knock out people with his famous uppercut or quick rabbit punch. Andre Morris came from a background where his parents were strung out on drugs and his grandparents raised him. Practically all of his life, Andre Morris had to fight on the streets to survive. At the age of 15 Andre Morris started going to the boxing ring to learn how to box. Andre Morris was trained by Gus who taught him everything that he knows and at the age of 28 Andre Morris has an impressive record of 35-0. Andre Morris beat the best in New York and he KO 30 fighters along with winning the other 5 fights by TKO. Andre Morris was well trained by Gus during his practices and Morris won titles after titles. Morris won the heavy weight title when he knocked out former Champ Herman Burns in the second round.

 

Meanwhile, a scrawny kid by the name of Todd McNeil came from Scranton, PA. This kid learned how to fight because he used to get beat up by bullies in the 8th grade and all through high school. Vinnie would invite McNeil to the boxing ring to teach him how to fight because McNeil used to have black-eyes. Todd McNeil decided to finally learn how to fight when he was 18 and he went through light weight boxing matches where he would learn to develop as he would fight different fighters from all parts of Pennsylvania. A bum named Richard Newton went the distance with Todd McNeil when they fought in Philadelphia. This fight was the worst light weight fight that the crowd in Philly had ever seen. The 2 guys traded punches back and forth until McNeil finally got the advantage when he knocked out Newton in the 7th round. Todd McNeil now at age 29 has a record of 29-5. 

 

McNeil's trainer Vinnie said, "I got to tell you this kid, you have a lot of heart and you give it your all everytime

 

you step into the ring."

 

Todd McNeil replies, "I want a shot at the heavy weight title against Andre (Killer) Morris Vinnie!"

 

Vinnie answers, "Kid he will knock you into next week, you don't stand a chance against this kid."

 

Todd McNeil's response is, "But I'm hungry, I can go the distance and pull off an upset just train me."

 

Vinnie replies, "I admire your optimism but he will knock you out kid."

 

Todd McNeil answered, "I can beat all the odds that are stacked against me."

 

Vinnie says, "You know what you got a lot of guts kid and I will take you up on your challenge and set up the

 

title bout with you and Andre Morris."

 

"All I want is a chance to prove to the world that I can pull off the upset," utters Todd McNeil.

 

Andre Morris issued a challenge to anyone who wanted to challenge him for the title.

 

He responded by saying, "If there is a challenger that will fight me and can last 5 rounds and can beat

 

me then I will congradulate him for beating me."

 

Todd McNeil stepped up and said, "Hey Andre Morris I will challenge you for your heavy weight title!"

 

Andre Morris replied, "Alright Todd McNeil you're on, the fight will be in Madison Square Garden!" 

 

The fight would take place in Madison Square Garden. The trainers had a chance to train their fighters for the title. No boxer was taking anything lightly. Vinnie was working on helping Todd McNeil's focus level for the fight. Andre Morris was taking out his aggression on the punching bag.

 

It was a sellout crowd at Madison Square Garden and the ring announcer would announce the fighters as they prepared to fight.

 

Vinnie gave Todd McNeil some words of advice by saying, "The best advice that I can give you is to fight this

 

guy hard kid and go out there and win!"

 

Todd McNeil was motivated from that.

 

The announcer said, "First the challenger at 5' 11" tall weighing at 205 LBS from Scranton, PA Todd McNeil."

 

Naturally the crowd booed because Todd McNeil was from Pennsylvania.

 

Then the announcer said, "And here is your heavy weight champion at 6' 1" weighing at 215 LBS from

Brooklyn, New York they call him the "Killer instinct" Andre (Killer) Morris."

 

The crowd is on their feet cheering their hometown favorite champion Morris.

 

The ref told the 2 fighters, "Hey, I want a clean fight, no hitting below the belt, and watch out for the rabbit

punches."

 

The bell rings for round 1 to begin: Andre Morris is lighting Todd McNeil up with a series of right and left uppercuts to the face. Todd McNeil tries to punch Andre Morris in the jaw but Andre Morris ducks and uppercuts Todd McNeil in the stomach. Andre Morris is catching Todd McNeil with quick jabs to the face. Todd McNeil was trying to fight back but couldn't connect with any of his uppercuts. Andre Morris again is lighting Todd McNeil up with more quick jabs to Todd McNeil's face and have him up against the ropes and they are holding each other. The ref tells them to break it up. McNeil is able to get in a couple of jabs to Morris's head right before the bell rings. It was the end of round 1 and Morris takes round 1 easily against McNeil.

 

Both boxers go to their trainers and Vinnie tells McNeil, "Hey kid don't quit because you have more heart

than him; he is just a fighter like you."

 

Gus tells Morris, "You got him right where you want him, put him away kid."

 

The bell rings for round 2 to start: Morris is catching McNeil with a series of lightning quick jabs and uppercuts to the chest and stomach. McNeil catches Morris with a nice uppercut to the head. Morris answers with an uppercut to McNeil's face and cut his eye open with that vicious blow. McNeil is trying to fight back with his one good eye and is able to to catch Morris with uppercuts to his stomach and ribs and is able to catch him with a nice left hook to the jaw and knocks him on the ground. The ref counts 1, 2,3,4 and Morris gets back up. Morris is trying to catch McNeil with rights and lefts jabs but McNeil is dodging his hits. The bell rings and the fighters go back to their trainers. After 2 rounds it's even at 1 apiece.

 

Morris was stunned by McNeil's left hook in Round 2 of their Heavy Weight Championship boxing match that knocked Morris on the ground. Morris was able to get back up after the 4 count.

 

Gus to Morris: "Kid don't play nice, you got to beat this punk up good!"

 

Vinnie to McNeil: "Nice round McNeil you was able to weather the storm. Stay in the fight kid!"

 

Round 3 begins: Morris catches McNeil with a series of jabs to the face and head. McNeil tries to catch Morris with a right hook to the face but Morris dodges it and uppercuts McNeil in the face and continues to catch McNeil with jabs to McNeil's face. McNeil catches Morris with jabs to his chest and stomach. Morris catches McNeil with uppercuts to the ribs. McNeil tries to uppercut Morris in the head but Morris dodges it and catches McNeil with uppercuts to the face and a really nice uppercut to the jaw that sent McNeil to the ground. The ref counts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 but McNeil somehow gets up to beat the 10 count. Morris is toying with McNeil with jabs to the face and head and jabs to the ribs and stomach. McNeil answers with uppercuts to the stomach. McNeil tried to catch Morris with a right hook to the jaw but Morris ducked and uppercuted McNeil in the face that sends McNeil right back on the ground again. The ref counts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 but McNeil fights through the pain and refuse to stay down as he gets back up to beat the 10 count again. Morris clearly dominated the challenger McNeil in that 3rd round as the bell rings and both fighters go to their trainers.

 

Gus to Morris: "Kid you gave that kid the VIP (Very Intense Pain) treatment more punishment kid more punishment!"

 

Vinnie to McNeil: "McNeil continue to fight hard because you have a heart of a champion kid!

 

Round 4: The bell rings for round 4 to begin. McNeil catches Morris with jabs to the head and stomach. Morris continues to catch McNeil with those lightning quick jabs to the face and head. Morris is catching McNeil with uppercuts to the stomach and Morris catches McNeil with a series of jabs to the ribs. McNeil answers with jabs to Morris's face and chest. Morris waits patiently for McNeil to do an uppercut which McNeil tries to uppercut Morris in the head but Morris cleverly dodges it and have McNeil up against the ropes. Morris catches McNeil with a nice left hook to the face that sent McNeil to the ground. The ref counts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 but McNeil gets back up in time with a second before being knocked out for the count. The fighters go to their trainers as the bell rings and it's the end of round 4. McNeil took a brutal beating in these last 2 rounds. Morris takes rounds 3 and 4 by knocking down the challenger McNeil 3 times before he got up to barely beat the 10 count every time and it was on to that decisive 5th round. McNeil took a brutal beating those last 2 rounds.

Finally, it was time for the bell to ring for the decisive 5th round for the title. Morris continues to beat on McNeil with a series of rights and lefts jabs to his ribs. McNeil looked so exhausted from the punishment he took in rounds 3 and 4 but McNeil never quit. McNeil put together a combination of jabs to Morris's face and head. Morris tried to hit McNeil in the other eye to try to cut it open but McNeil was able to duck and was able to catch Morris with uppercuts to the ribs.

 

Gus angrily responded, What are you doing kid, fight back don't go toe to toe with this kid he will knock you

out!"

 

Morris wasn't fighting smart at all and allowed for it to be a trading punches fight with him and McNeil.

 

Vinnie said, "Go for it McNeil you got this kid!"

 

McNeil and Morris continued to trade punches in the 5th and decisive round. McNeil caught Morris with a right hook to the nose and a nice uppercut in the eye. McNeil was jabbing away at Morris's chest and stomach. Morris tried to move back but was up against the ropes. McNeil uppercuted Morris in the jaw and Morris fell on the ground. The ref counted 1, 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10.

 

The ref said, "You're out! The winner and the new heavy weight champion Todd McNeil."

 

The crowd cheered as Todd McNeil who was an underdog pulled off an upset to Andre Morris. After the fight was over Todd McNeil and Andre Morris shaked hands and Andre Morris congradulated Todd McNeil.

Top 5 Airports I will never forget

#5 O'Hare International Airport Chicago, IL

 

It seem like it was a little over 14 years since I've last changed in this huge Airport. When I think about O'Hare, I can't forget the time me, my mom, and my step-father went to a church conference back in '93 & and the church conference was near in the O'Hare Airport. I also changed here a couple of times going to Tulsa, OK.

#4 Chicago Midway International Airport Chicago, IL

 

Much smaller than O'Hare International Airport but I've changed here going to Tulsa, OK. The 2 Airports mentioned are Airports in Illinois that I will never forget. These 2 Airports are O'Hare International Airport & Chicago Midway International Airport.

 

#3 Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport Chattanooga, TN

 

How could I forget this tiny Airport? When I used my free $350 voucher to come to Tennessee back in 2010, I pictured the Chattanooga Airport being pretty big. It didn't dawn on me while I was flying in a little express plane that that had a lot to do with the size of an Airport. I also flew back coming out of this same tiny Airport back in 2011.

 

#2 Dulles International Airport Washington, DC

 

This Airport is pretty big & there are 2 things that I remember about changing in this Airport. When I was discharged (general but honorable discharge) from the Army Reserve, I went to a restaurant in this very Airport. An Asian woman noticed that I had my Army Reserve hat on & the slushy that I ordered the woman had given me a discount, then a friendly woman who worked at the desk changed my ticket & booked my flight from Dulles International Airport out of Washington one way to Bradley International Airport to Hartford when my flight to Philadelphia was overbooked. The woman had given me a free $350 voucher to fly anywhere in the US & it was good for a year.

 

#1 Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Hebron, KY

Creation Museum Petersburg, KY

 

The name of this Airport threw me off. The times  I've changed in this Airport I've changed here to go to Milwaukee, WI, Kansas City, MO, & Tulsa, OK also coming from these states to go back to Bradley International Airport to Hartford. Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky is a pretty big Airport & I hear it's about an hour & 30 minutes from Downtown Cincinnati. I hear a lot about the Creation Museum in Northern Kentucky. I've changed in this Airport enough where I feel that I will visit Kentucky soon. It happened to a lot of Airports that I used to change in a lot just passing through to my final destination until those states were my final destinations. 

 

 

 

My take on Kim Davis being released from jail

Kim Davis should have never went to jail.

 

 

Kim Davis first of all should have never went to jail. Kim Davis I felt did the right thing by not issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. I feel that more Christians like Kim Davis need to take a stand & stand up for their Christian beliefs, the reason why a lot of Christians are not standing up for their beliefs is because the teaching & doctrine that they are being taught in churches is compromising such sin as homosexuality. There is no one who is going to tell me to comprise what I feel is right to try and suit 2%-3% population that say they are LGBT (Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) that is morally wrong. When the Supreme Court voted 5-4 that the 50 states legalized same-sex marriage 2 months ago, counties in Texas, Kentucky, and Alabama were not compromising. Marriage is & always is between a man and a woman, it's in the constitution. No one tried to shove it down the throats of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender because we love everybody but what we don't like is the sin but since the Supreme Court made their ruling we are supposed to let them shove it down our throats if what we believe what the Bible say about homosexuality is a sin to accept homosexuality as normal? I don't think so. I am proud of Kim Davis for what she has done & and I am happy for what Mike Huckabee did by helping Kim Davis get released from jail. I am also proud of the 300 plus supporters that rallied for Kim Davis being released from jail. I was prepared to sign every petition I got emailed to support Kim Davis. I think Kim Davis should continue to stand up for what she believe is morally right!

Gospel Music

 

 

Soul Music

 

 

R&B Music

 

 

Christian Music

 

 

Country Music

 

 

Soft Rock Music

 

 

Mentioned above were some selected favorite songs from the different genres of music that I like. Growing up me & my family listened to Gospel & Christian music at church and at home. Since I've been grown I have listened to the following genres of music: Gospel, Christian, Soul, R&B, Country, Soft Rock, Classical, Pop, Acoustics, etc. I have more of an appreciation of the different genres of music a whole lot more now than I did back then. The thing we can agree to disagree about music genres is that we can say that the music that we didn't like before or didn't listen to before, after listening to that genre or genres of music that we can say that we can like that genre or genres of music now. That may not be the case for all music genres but some.

 

Why I have decided to get blogger as my 2nd website

I've been writing online with my own websites (Yes I have 2 websites wix & blogger) for approximately 4 1/2 years now. I have enjoyed & loved every minute of the writing I have done. When I first decided to get my own website 4 years ago, I had to adjust to having my own website. This is coming from someone who was used to being on websites for approximately 11 years now. I have seen & observed things on websites especially social networking websites. The very first website I decided to get was blogger back in 2011. I had my old blogger from 2011-2012. One day I decided to get a new website and expand (do more writing and put up more pictures on it) and I got wix in 2012. I have been on wix 3 years now. Last week it came to me to get a new website (this very website that I first started writing on) and that website is blogger. I guess that you can say that both blogger & wix are my 2 favorite writing websites. Blogger is my website that I alternate on when I'm not writing on wix. I have been keeping up with this online writing for 4 years now so in a way having 2 websites is what I really needed. Below is the links to my website blogger.

Encouraging those with special needs

 

 

There are a lot of people who are parents of children with special needs. There are parents who also adopt children with special needs after already given birth to their own children. Those who have special needs both adult & children want to have an opportunity like everyone else to get a good education & have job opportunities. I'm going to tell a little story about what it was like for me. I hope this will encourage both children & adults with special needs.

 

Top Favorite Surprise That I’ve Experienced

 

#1 Super Award Most Improved 1987 Written September 16, 2014. Edited August 21, 2015.

 

I am going to tell my readers off the bat, that from the time I started Kindergarten 'till the 2nd grade I was taken out of the different teacher's classes. The problem was that the teachers doubted that I could do the work & keep pace with the fellow classmates in my classes in Kindergarten-2nd grade. The different teachers tried to say I was a slow learner because I wasn't the quickest learner or the smartest grades wise. However, I always let their comments help me to stay motivated. Believe it or not those very discouraging & hurtful comments that people said about me was what motivated me and I never gave up. After I stayed back in 2nd grade at 8, I was taken out of Special Education and put in Ms. Bloom's 2nd grade class. Ms. Bloom had her doubts about me because Ms. Bloom never dealt with a kid who came from Special Ed & Ms. Bloom didn't know if I could keep pace with the rest of her 2nd grade class. As a kid I was all too familiar with hearing the word "can't" and my mom ( a single mom of seven all boys) was all too familiar with coming down to my school and telling the different teacher's off when I'm proving them wrong. I will never forget the meeting that Ms. Bloom, my mom, the principal, and I had. The principal said these very words to my teacher Ms. Bloom, "It's your job to make sure that every student in your class get up to the level where they all need to be and Paul need to be given that chance. If you don't shape up and fly right and help Paul be up to the level that he needs to be then you are out of here!" Ms. Bloom never heard anything like that before but it was what she needed to hear. The words "You're fired!" stuck in her head to where she changed her attitude about me. I remember the fun we had in Ms. Bloom's class going on the different field trips, having parties, watching really good movies, as well as watching good educational shows. Most importantly, I remember how far I've come in Ms. Bloom's class & progressed tremendously. I will never forget June of 1987 when Ms. Bloom was handing out awards to her students. I was 9 and perhaps the absolute biggest surprise was receiving a Super Award for Most Improved student. I do believe that my fellow classmates were more excited for me receiving my award than they were for receiving their award or awards. I was in awe as well as surprised to receive such an award & I was grateful to pass to the 3rd grade along with most of my fellow classmates!

 

That little story about me above is the reason why I never let what people said to me discourage me. Those with special needs want to be encouraged that he or she "can do anything if they put their mind to do it!" Those words of encouragement and being patient is what children & adults with special needs need. If you're a single parent (just mom or just dad) or parents (both mom & dad) to children (both your own children & adopted children) instill that he or she "can do anything if they put their mind to do it." Whether you were ridiculed & made fun of not when you were in school, you need to do your part by subjecting children with special needs in an environment that is devoted to helping him or her achieve their personal goals. I hope all of my readers enjoy!

To some of you these sources mentioned above, you tend to find them as reliable sources to you.

Looking back at my 20's

I've learned to trust God more now in my late 30's than I did when I was in my early 20's.

 

 

I've been listening to a really great program on the radio for like 5 months now on WIHS 104.9 FM called The Boundless Show Saturdays at 11 AM with Lisa Anderson & the program is a blessing. The show had me thinking back when I was in my 20's. A lot of us who were in our 20's had expectations of graduating from college at 22 or 23, working a good paying job, and being married at 25. Somewhere down the road you get all kinds of advice from people if you are single & they mean well but not all of them quite understand your situation. To be honest I never really got advice when it came to marriage because people who knew me from church or who knew me outside of church knew & could sense that I was serious about marriage & having a wife when I was in my late teen's and early 20's. I never set a time when I was going to finish college so I was never in a hurry to graduate college but when the time came from me to graduate from college I was going to be inspired by people who were an encouragement to me.

 

When I look back to my 20's, the only regret I have is that I didn't have more counselors who were like mentors. What I mean by that is that the counselor's job is to give you good advice when you are preparing to graduate from high school and college & he or she usually help you by writing a letter of recommendation, help you with your resume, and helping you prepare for job interviews. A lot of counselors that knew me could sense that I had an idea what I wanted to do with my life but never felt that I needed a mentor or mentors because they seen in me as a mentor to people who were younger or who were my age. That might have been true but I needed to mature & I felt that I could have benefited tremendously if I would have had mentors telling me things like, "I know what it is like to grow up in a single parent home like you did with just mom or just dad mainly raising me by their self." I felt that if I would have gotten more words of wisdom from a mentor or more investment from him or her that, that would have helped me to not have my doubts about college(when at times I had doubts about going to college or graduating from college after graduating from high school). Mentors are people that usually help you bring out the best in you when you don't always believe in you.

 

Now when I look back to my 20's, I realized how more patient I should have been & understand that if I expect to meet any expectations such as finishing college, working a really good job, and being married & having a wife that I was going to have to trust in the one who has the plan in his hands! I'm not the only Christian that had things that didn't work out for them like they thought they would. Lisa Anderson has wonderful topics on The Boundless Show.  Lisa Anderson has a panel of discussions from singles & married perspectives ranging from 20's- seniors. The Boundless Show is what I tune in on the radio every Saturday. Now that I'm in my late 30's I trust in the Lord more because he has got a plan for my life Jeremiah 29:11-13 (KJV). I encourage you to tune in to The Boundless Show on the radio in your area if you get this program because it's positive, encouraging, and thought provoking!

 

 

My views on women bosses & coaches

Pat Summit story is truly an inspiration to all women

Becky Hammon will have a head coaching job in the NBA sooner than anyone think.

Georgia Frontiere Owner of the St. Louis Rams (1927-2008)

 

I finally get a chance to touch on this subject in a blog that I am looking forward to writing about. My views on women as bosses', coaches, owners, etc., I think is a great part of making history. What I mean by that is that we know about what women went through. Like anyone else who had to overcome adversity, women had to overcome a different adversity (discrimination because of their gender). I respect Pat Summit, Becky Hammon, and the late Georgia Frontiere, etc., for what they have accomplished. 

 

From personal experience I had a boss who was a woman & what I admired about her while working for her when I was in Chattanooga, TN is the respect she had for all of her employees that were working for her. Basically, you show up to work, do your job, and respect your boss, then everything is all good. I'm saying this to say this, in my humble opinion, it does not matter who is over you whether it's a man or woman as long as you respect who you are working for then you will have no problem.  I have nothing but respect for women that started from the bottom & worked their way up to the top. I've learned that there are bosses who really don't like bossing people around who are under them. If you become really cool with your boss, you tend to find that most bosses will tell you to do things almost like if he or she is asking you a question. 

 

My take on Commissioner Roger Goodell Upholding Tom Brady's 4 Game suspension

Tom Brady's reputation is that he is losing credibility & considered untrustworthy

Ted Wells Investigation on the New England Patriots deflate-gate

 

 

Here is the scenario. First you have one of the winniest coach in Bill Belichick, who has believed Tom Brady when Brady have repeatedly said that Brady has done nothing wrong. Secondly, you have an owner Robert Kraft who said that "the NFL should apologize for falsely accusing the New England Patriots of wrongdoing if the investigation have no prove of the New England Patriots deflating footballs," and you have a Commissioner Roger Goodell who have in a lot of people's opinions has gotten it wrong with the Ray Rice situation & Adrian Peterson situation, and lastly you have Tom Brady who says he have done nothing wrong & did not tell the ball boys to under inflate the footballs. Now we have a major problem. Tom Brady has not cooperated & insists on saying he has done nothing wrong, yet he agreed that he would cooperate when the Ted Wells investigation happened to see if Tom Brady was telling the truth or not. 

 

In my humble opinion, I think that not only was Tom Brady not honest when Brady was asked if Brady told the ball boys to under inflate the footballs but that Brady sent text messages on his cellphone that was later destroyed because Brady knew that that was the only key evidence that would prove that Brady was lying & totally trying to pull a fast one over on Commissioner Roger Goodell, coach Bill Belichick, and owner Robert Kraft. The New England Patriots took the $1 million fine and took being stripped of the 1 & 2 round NFL draft picks because Kraft & Belichick felt that it was not worth fighting a losing battle going to court. We have to remember that Goodell is popular with the owners of all 32 NFL football teams, all of the owners pay Goodell's salary, and Goodell has made the NFL rich. The NFL fans come out and support their teams and the Stadiums & Domes are sold out when games are played there. Brady is fighting a losing battle because Goodell is upholding Tom Brady's 4 Game suspension. Brady wants to take this to court because Brady feels that he is innocent & continues to maintain his innocence. Brady could have had his suspension reduced to 0-1 Games and just a fine had Brady would have just admitted to having the ball boys under inflate the footballs during the New England Patriots 45-7 thumping of the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Championship Game in Foxoborough, MA. 

 

The question remains is Tom Brady's legacy as a great Quarterback tarnished because of spy-gate & deflate-gate? Well, let's look at the facts. The Patriots is 3-0 in Super Bowls winning each one by field goals spy-gating & 1-2 in Super Bowls not spy-gating (The New England Patriots defeated the Seattle Sea hawks 28-24 by 4 points and that was not confirmed until Russell Wilson threw a costly interception on 2nd and goal at the Patriots 1 yard line). You can talk about doing stuff to gain an advantage all you want but in my humble opinion the New England Patriots could have stepped it up in practice and Tom Brady could have let his presence be known on the football field. There is a way to get yourself pumped up & fired up without sneaky cheating ("everyone does it") method. I think Brady will be the Top 5 QB of all time whenever Brady decides to retire but critics & and New England Patriots fans will wonder what if Brady would have never been involved with spy-gate or deflate-gate would Brady have still won those 4 Super Bowls. Brady is fighting his 4 Game suspension but Brady need to be smart & realize he is only hurting the New England Patriots in the long run fighting this kind of battle. Brady's arrogant demeanor will prove that "just because he is Brady that he is not above the law."

Comforting words of wisdom

 

 

Comforting a mom who have a special needs child 1991 Written Jun 21, 2014. Edited July 15, 2015.

 

I will never forget the experience that my family and I had at UCONN Health Center with a woman who is a mom of 2 boys (one of her boys being a special need). We went to UCONN to visit my mom's sister (me and my older brother's Aunt) who had recovered from having major surgery (Open Heart Surgery). My mom, step-father, and older brother went to the recovery room at the hospital where you had to be at least 17 years of age and my brother could go because he was 17 but I had to stay out front in the main lobby because I was only 13. Here is where the experience happened; my family met a woman (Hispanic woman) back in 1991 who was at the hospital because of her son's condition (a vegetable state). The woman was really friendly and I got along with her kids one of her son's might have been my age and the other a couple of years younger than me. Anyway, you could look at the woman and tell that she was hurting on the inside. The woman was going through a serious problem in her marriage to her husband because one of her son's vegetable state condition. The father of the baby didn't want to have anything to do with their baby because he was a special needs child. Probably the worst feeling in the world is a parent saying that he or she don't want to have anything to do with you because of your disability.

 

Meanwhile, my mom had a chance to comfort the woman and they both shared the same name Yvonne. My mom told her a story about the time she had my older brother and how my older brother was so big when he was a baby that the doctor had to break both of his arms (which is the only reason why my brother is left-handed) and the doctor didn't think that my older brother would live and that if my older lived he would be a vegetable state for the rest of his life. My mom is a praying warrior so when she hear negative things she know that it was nothing but the devil that will try to discourage a child of God. My mom knew that my older brother would live and that he would walk. My older brother was a fighter and my mom kept on saying encouraging words to him saying "You will walk in Jesus name and you will not be a vegetable!" My mom knew my older brother was on a walker because he had to use that to help him walk and my older brother was inspired and my mom said that my brother was walking at 7 months and it got to the point where my older brother didn't need the walker anymore! The Bible verse that comes to mind is "Colossians 2:6-7 King James Version (KJV) As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving." http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Colossians+2%3A6-7&version=KJV This is a Bible verse that parents can pray over their children even if they're a baby like my mom prayed for my older brother. Yvonne started to feel better after hearing my mom's testimony because she knew we all understood what she was going through and what she had to deal with. Yvonne was sweet enough to give me her Spanish cookies and Yvonne (the woman of her special needs son) and Yvonne (my mom) had exchanged phone numbers and they kept in touch on the telephone for 1 1/2 years up until my family and I moved from Hartford to Bloomfield in 1992.

 

What a fellow classmate said to me that made my eyes run water 1999 Written July 1, 2014. Edited July 15, 2015.

 

I'm in my 4th semester at Manchester Community College (MCC) and I made friends the 2 years I attended that college. It's 1999 and at 21 I met some friends who were in Food Service for their Culinary Arts Program. Some graduated from Culinary Arts in 1998 and some were graduating in 1999. You meet a lot of classmates from all parts of Connecticut in different towns. There are those classmates who grew up with both parents raising them, (everyone called them the rich kids because they tend to have everything and lived in the Suburban parts of Connecticut), there are those classmates who were like me that grew up in a single parent home, (they were considered to be inner city kids that were considered not as rich and they lived in the Urban parts of Connecticut), and there were those classmates who grew up in an abusive home and were adopted because their parents didn't love them). MCC back in 1999 was predominately white students, some black students, and some Hispanic students. I happened to make friends of all races because I am used to blending in with people. I learn from everyone because that is how I was brought up. I will never forget the time I met Jose' when he was in Culinary Arts. Jose' was Hispanic and was about 21 or older. I had met him back in 1998 about the same time I met classmates that was in Jose's Culinary Arts class. Food Service was a class where they made food for breakfast and lunch Monday-Friday from 9 AM- 2 PM. I had a little of breakfast (one time blueberry pancakes) and some lunch (wrap sandwiches). This was a normal class that involved participation, exams, and baking and this was done for 2 semesters (from fall to spring) and the students graduated in May.

 

Meanwhile, graduation was approaching and the professor(s) had encouraged all the students that were graduating to invite all of their family & friends. Graduation was hooked up with all kinds of food. I was invited to attend Culinary Arts graduation class of 1999 along with former students who graduated Culinary Arts in 1998 at MCC. I had a chance to meet a lot of families who were attending graduation. The parent or parents had a chance to watch their son's or daughter's graduate, the brothers or sisters had a chance to see their siblings graduate (younger and older than the students who were graduating) and Aunts, Uncles, and friends, etc. When it came to Jose' I noticed that I didn't see any of his family at graduation and that was a major shock to me. I remember asking Jose' "Jose' where is your family?" Jose' response was what made me view family in a different way, Jose' said, “You're joking right? I have family in New Jersey & New York but my family is the ones who graduating with me right here and all of those whose families & friends who came to the graduation!" Hearing Jose' tell me that made my eyes run water because there are so many kids whose parents who don't care about their children. I didn't know if Jose' was one of those kids who had a really rough life growing up but Jose' didn't have to say anything because he taught me that sometimes family does not always mean that it's your blood family (parents & relatives) that come to your graduation but it's your close friends who were like blood family that were there that made your graduation priceless. I remember saying to Jose' "Congratulations!" when Jose' received his diploma for graduating from the Culinary Arts Program at MCC.

 

What a woman said to me that made my day 2003 Written July 7, 2014.

 

You never know who you will meet even at a supermarket. I will never forget the spring of 2003 when a brunette hair woman stopped to talk to me while she was leaving then Waldbaum's (now BIG Y) supermarket at Bishop Corners in West Hartford. The first thing she said to me in a friendly way, "Hi young man." I responded to her by saying, "Hi." The Lord put it on this woman's heart to ask me, "Are you are Christian?" I answered her, "Yes I am." The woman then asked me, "What is your name?" I replied, "Paul." As we greeted each other, the woman said, "Nice to meet you Paul I'm Marilyn." and I told Marilyn that it was nice to meet her too. But here's what Marilyn said to me that really touched my heart and really made my day when Marilyn said, "God Bless You Paul and you are more than welcome to come and fellowship at my church Church Of The Living God. Church Of The Living God is in Manchester right on the South Windsor line and across from it was then Applebees on Deming St. Marilyn's act of obedience to witness to me or invite me to her church really blessed me! Yes, I've was saved 20 years at the time but to hear "Jesus Loves You" is always good to hear no matter if you are saved and someone who is leading you to the Lord and by me being so receptive, Marilyn felt comfortable chatting with me. I told my mom because my mom was with me at the supermarket. As an act of obedience ourselves, we got directions to Church Of The Living God and went to church services for many months (maybe 6-8 months) because of Marilyn and hoping to see Marilyn in church. We missed Marilyn but it was nothing but an angel that sent Marilyn across my path. I never got a chance to say "thank you for being such a blessing to me" to Marilyn at church but I'm reminded of the 2 good Bible verses after a wonderful experience that I had at the supermarket. 1 John 5:4 and Matthew 5:16. 1 John 5:4 simply says, "For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith." Matthew 5:16 is another Bible that I like and Marilyn demonstrated when she was chatting with me which simply says, "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."

 

A Good Samaritan Written February 17, 2015. Edited July 15, 2015.

 

Luke 10:30-37 (KJV) "And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. And by chance there came down a certain Priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed on the other side. And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him om his beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee. which now of these three, thinkest thou, was nieghbour unto him that fell among the thieves? and he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise."

 

Yesterday, I heard a testimony on the radio station KLove on my cell phone which is 106.9FM on my station where I'm from that I will never forget. The testimony was about a woman who was going through serious problems in her marriage to her husband. The woman was told to purchase a book that an Author wrote about dealing with problems that people have in their marriage. The woman couldn't afford the book & a young woman co-worker was praying & asking the Lord how can she help this woman out. The woman & the young co-worker both work at the same place in Georgia. The young woman had never been married before but the Lord heard her prayer and put it on her heart to go to her car. The young woman I do believe name is Jennifer. Anyway, Jennifer went to her car and got a book that was a solution that all problems that anyone face. Jennifer got The Holy Bible, the King James Version (KJV) because Jennifer felt that this was the one book that the woman who was going through a rocky marriage could use that was better than any book that any Author could write when it came to people having problems in their marriage. Jennifer said she read John 3:16 (KJV) to the woman in distraught, which simply says, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." Jennifer said that the woman's whole attitude she had towards her husband changed after reading 3 or 4 chapters of the Bible. The woman not only feels a lot better about her marriage, but the woman told Jennifer that she would go to church with Jennifer on Sunday. When I heard this testimony on KLove, I couldn't help but to think of the story of a Good Samaritan. When it comes to helping others, we have to picture our self in their situation and that is exactly what Jennifer demonstrated when she helped out her co-worker. When we have problems that seem too much for us and need help, we can find the solution to our problems in the Bible. This was a really great testimony that I thought that I would sure on my blog!

 

"It's A Brand New Day" Written February 27, 2015. Edited July 15, 2015. 

 

A woman told a testimony about a young man at a gas station that the woman drove to in Dayton, OH. The area that the woman drove in Dayton was the rough area. This young man was a heroin addict & anyone who looked like that had money, the young man would ask them if they had $10. The woman went up to the young man and the young man asked the woman if she had $10. The woman not only felt lead to give the young man $10 but the woman also felt lead to give the young man a hug, too. I do believe the woman said that the young man's name is Anthony. The woman said that Anthony begin to melt and started bawling. Anthony told the woman that it cost $10 to shoot up heroin and that was what Anthony needed the money for. Most people would have avoided Anthony "like the plague" in any bad area of town let alone the bad part of Dayton. Anyway, the Lord put it on the woman's heart to say to Anthony that, "God knew before I gave you the money what you were using the money for." Anthony had a job where he was making pretty good money. Most people would think why would anyone who haves a good paying job would stoop so low? It does not matter how much money anyone have, if he or she don't know Jesus or accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior then they are lost.

 

Meanwhile, the woman had a chance to talk to Anthony again when the woman drove to the same gas station again in Dayton, the woman saw Anthony there. Anthony told the woman how much he turned his life around after the conversation they had before when they met at the same gas station. Anthony got a Graphics Design degree from school & Anthony told the woman how he listens to KLove. Anthony mentioned to the woman day in & day out and night in & night out that Anthony listens to It's A Brand New Day by Mandisa. When I heard the woman tell her testimony on KLove about how Anthony have turned his life around, I am reminded of the Bible verse 2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJV) which simply says, "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: Old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." The confirmation of that same Bible verse is when Anthony told the woman that he still has the $10 & how Anthony didn't use the money to spend it on heroin. The Lord sent the right person across Anthony's path & Anthony's testimony is an example of that!

 

 

I thought that it would be a great idea to write Comforting words of wisdom. We all have good & bad days but suppose we are more sensitive to how we treat others or others concerning their situation? Well, check out these stories that made me more sensitive to others situation that were written above. I hope that all of my readers enjoy!

#3 My older brother's High School Graduation 1992 Written August 2, 2014. Edited July 14, 2015.

 

My older brother at 18 graduated from Weaver High School in Hartford. My brother graduated from high school with high honors (I do believe he graduated with a 3.8 GPA). My older brother is considered the "miracle baby" because of what he went through when he was born. The doctors didn't think he would live or even walk but my older brother not only beat all odds but my older brother always got good grades in school. My brother had people of all ages who looked up to him (younger and older as well as the same age) when my older brother graduated from high school, my older brother inspired me to work really hard in school like my older brother did so when it was my time to graduate, a lot of family & friends will be at my graduation like they were at my older brother's graduation. My brother's graduation was great!

#2 My High School Graduation 1997 Written August 2, 2014. Edited July 14, 2015.

 

I was perhaps discouraged in every possible way a person could discourage anyone in school from elementary school, private school, and high school. I had problems with a few teachers that discouraged me and I was even recommended by a teacher to be put in 2nd grade special education when my mom took me out of 1st grade from a teacher who took it upon herself to discipline me (whupped me with a belt). My special ed teacher held me back in 2nd grade and was very discouraging to me and from there I was taken out of special ed and put in Ms. Bloom's 2nd grade class at the age of 8. I was the type of person who channeled a lot of negative things that people said to me. I didn't always get the best of grades in school but with that being said, I could always get the score or grade I needed to when I was in danger of failing a class (do my best under pressure when I'm at my worst do my absolute best). Anyway, my family being at my high school graduation was priceless because it showed that hard work really does pay off. I even had my fellow classmates & their family and friends rooting for me when I was graduating with my classmates from Bloomfield High School in Bloomfield (Graduated and proved the naysayers wrong). Yes I did it!

#1 Marissa's College Graduation (Ms. Mercedes daughter) 1997 Written August 2, 2014. Edited July 14, 2014.

 

One of the things that inspire you when you graduate high school is going to college and graduating from there too. Marissa & her older brother by a few months Chris were like family to me. Marissa 21 going on 22 graduated from UCONN up in Storrs. What made going to Marissa's college graduation priceless was that it was the same year I graduated from high school (double fun). I remember Ms. Mercedes had a cookout for her daughter Marissa at Ms. Mercedes house in Windsor. There were all kinds of food that was there especially Spanish food too. I grew up eating some of Ms. Mercedes Spanish food that she used to always cook (no matter how much Ms. Mercedes son Chris used to try to tease his mom about her cooking). Marissa graduating from college inspired me to go to college because I would eventually walk across that stage and get my college degree like Marissa walked across that stage and got her Bachelor's Degree at UCONN. Guess what, after 15 years of not quitting despite the routes I took, I graduated from Capital Community College (CCC) and received my Associate's Degree in General Studies. Till this day I use any negative talk that people say about me to motivate me!

 

Top 5 Great Experiences

 

#4 Milwaukee, WI 2005 Written August 1, 2014. Edited July 14, 2014.

 

It does not matter what state you're in when you travel and go to church conferences, you always seem to meet friendly people (even if everyone is not friendly). I remember me & my mom went to a church conference in Milwaukee back in 2005 for a week. We met women named Ms. Faye, Ms. Mary, and Ms. Naomi while we were at the conference in Milwaukee. Ms. Naomi (a single mom) is a Wisconsin native of the Badger state and bought me & my mom fruit at a Market that had really good fruit which was a blessing! I remember we went to a great restaurant that had really good cheeseburgers (what the Badger state is known for that being great cheese) in Milwaukee. The other 2 women were from the Constitution state of CT like where my mom and I were from. Ms. Faye (divorced) was from East Haddam, CT. Ms. Faye had a sassy but outgoing personality and she really cracked us up at the conference. Ms. Mary (single) was a sweet woman from Hamden, CT and both Ms. Faye & Ms. Mary like me and my mom came to the conference in Wisconsin because they didn't have a church home either.

 

Whenever we would sing at the conference, Ms. Faye would tell Ms. Mary when she heard me sing that I could sing (Ms. Faye always sat beside me at the conference).  Ms. Mary then would say to me, "Paul I heard from Faye that you are a great singer and I should sit by you and listen!" (Ms. Mary sat beside me) Ms. Faye sat beside me in church and would observe how I do things and would tell Ms. Mary, lol. We all met a woman named Ms. Leah from Minnesota and a woman named Ms. Kathy from Australia one day, when we all had went out for lunch after coming from one of the conferences. We had all ate and my mom offered to pay for all of us and Ms. Leah said to my mom I will never forget, "Don't you dare I am paying for all of us, lunch is on me!" It's something about how the Lord works things out even when you were not expecting it (unexpected blessing).

 

Florida Memory 1995 Written February 21, 2012. Edited July 14, 2015. (With Quotes from original blog Florida Memories: 1986,  1990, 1995)

 

“July of '86 When we arrived in Miami, I remember meeting my grandparents. It was really cool I got to meet my aunts and cousins, too. My Grandma made her famous grilled cheese sandwich till this day I will never forget because it was so good. It was the first time that I had been down south and adapted to the south easily that summer. My cousin made some slamming lemonade that I enjoyed! I felt at home and it started the trend of wanting to go down south every summer.”

 

“June of '90… for the most part we went out to eat food at the following restaurants: McDonald's, Burger King, Pizza Hut, Dairy Queen, etc. The big fun that the family had is when we went to Orlando to Disney World! We went to Magic Kingdom, MGM Studios, Epcot center, etc. I never knew how much fun I would have until I went to all of those theme parks. The family was chilling and having a good time. We had been on so many rides like the Roller Coaster, Merry-Go-Round, Ferris wheel, Racing Cars, etc. We even did fun stuff after we left Disney World.

 

I remember when we went bowling and had a blast bowling against each other the three games we played. My scores were mediocre but I didn't care because I had an awesome time! I remember when we stopped by family's house and had southern food like Macaroni and cheese, collard greens, fried chicken, baked beans, apple pie, drank soda, and drank punch. I remember when we went to the mall shopping and bought postcards to send back home to friends. Disney World started a trend that had family think about going down south every year.”

 

Five years later, the Sunshine state started a family tradition that was popular for so many years. Tampa, FL restarted the Mary Reddick Family Reunion in late July of '95. I was seventeen and I remember working a little summer job. I remember saving up some money to go to the Family Reunion. I would take off a couple of days from work. My mom and I flew to Tampa. My sweet aunt was driving us around because we didn't know our way around Tampa. We enjoyed a little bit of sightseeing of Busch Gardens which was wonderful! Events wound up happening later than planned from what was on the program. To me it didn't matter because I was getting to see family. A lot of the same family I remember seeing when the family went to Florida in 1986 and 1990 were there.

 

I will never forget the time when we all ate at the picnic. We were enjoying some great grub that family cooked like Macaroni and cheese, collard greens, barbecue ribs, fried chicken, and some delicious strawberry shortcake. I remember my cousin had made this gigantic cake and the strawberries were on top of the cake, while the whip cream had smothered the strawberries. I must have had like seconds and thirds of the strawberry shortcake. I had also drunk a lot of punch and I was enjoying time off from work and away from home.

 

Meanwhile, the family was being recorded on TV and they asked every member to say something about their family and tell where they are from. I remember my younger cousins and I were at an arcade nearby and I missed that part of the family reunion. I remember how disappointed I was that I had missed out. It had dawned on me that I was being selfish; my family understood because when the family went on vacation we needed to get away from stress of things that go on back home. I had a time to reflect on that moment and was quiet most of the family reunion.

 

I remember when we were all sitting down eating breakfast and everyone was looking at the photo album of past family reunions. My mom was saying how she always wanted to go to the family reunions but couldn't afford to come back then. I didn't realize how big my family is until I looked at the album. I remember my aunts were talking about the previous family reunions, how everyone came to them, and how really good they were. When I heard all of that, I wished I could have been able to go to the family reunions back then.

 

Lastly, before everyone went their separate ways and went back to their respective places, the Sunshine state had an awards ceremony handing out various awards for different things and then it came time to read the Mary Reddick family tree book. Mary Reddick was an escaped slave, who freed all of the West Indians from slavery. I learned that that was what family reunions were all about. It was about learning all about your people. We all went to church and had an awesome time! My cousin had hooked me up with like a couple of boxes of doughnuts that I can remember and my mom and I brought some of the food they fixed for us to take on the plane with us. The memories of '86, '90, and '95 is what I think about when I remember Florida.

 

To all of my readers for those of you who are writers, y'all can check out some of my events to write about Part 2. I thought I would be creative by taking some quotes from the original blog titled, Florida Memories: 1986, 1990, and 1995 with Florida Memory 1995. In all honesty, if I didn't have stories to tell like this I felt my whole life story would have been boring. In fact if I didn't have any of these experiences I would have been wondering what could have I done to be an effective communicator. I hope this help my readers understand me the writer more.

What we should expect from President Trump

President Trump Oval Office Agenda

 

-James Comey resigns or fired from the FBI. Comey did a terrible job investigating Hillary Clinton's emails scandal & he didn't do his job which was to prosecute Clinton.

-Attorney General Loretta Lynch resigns or fired. Loretta Lynch had a meeting with Bill Clinton and they talked about a lot of things more than just about their grand kids & golf. Loretta Lynch & Bill Clinton had a lot to do with Comey not prosecuting Clinton when it was evident that Clinton used classified emails.

-Hillary Clinton will be prosecuted but my fellow Conservatives will not like what I'm about to say. Hillary Clinton was a Senior Citizen when she served as Secretary of State in 2009 in Obama's cabinet (Clinton was 61 to be exact) and Clinton resigned as Secretary of State in 2013 (Clinton was 65 to be exact). Hillary Clinton 68-69 should not have been allowed to run for President with her baggage. Hillary Clinton will most likely avoid a severe punishment that Clinton would have gotten had Clinton have not been a Senior Citizen. The system tend to pardon Senior Citizens guilty of any crime. For example, if a 65 year old man murders someone he will most likely get 20-30 years in jail but if a 25 year old man murders someone he will most likely get life. People may ask why do someone who is 40 years younger who committed the same crime will get life and the Senior Citizen who committed the same crime would get less because Senior Citizens is not thought of as criminals like youngsters who commit criminal acts. Senior Citizens are likely to be pardoned in jail more too and what I mean by that is that Seniors are more likely to be separated from the other inmates than the youngsters. Since Seniors are not meant to live that much longer during sentencing and after their sentencing than youngsters who have a much longer sentencing that's why Seniors are pardoned as well. Clinton could get anywhere from 1-5 years in jail but it's unlikely that Hillary Clinton will serve all 5 years. Yes Clinton and anyone who commit crimes should pay for their crimes, Clinton will most likely pay off a lot of charges that she will face. Clinton's reputation will always be ruined because Clinton took no responsibility for her actions with that being said the Clinton's will always be thought of as a disgrace and Obama will go down in history as the worst president that we ever had.

-It's time to repeal and replace Obamacare.

-Renegotiate the Iran Nuclear deal. We are tired of making Countries prosper at our expense due to our bad deals where we get the worst end of the deals.

-Cut taxes from 35%-15%. People want to be able to afford to stay in their homes and not have to relocate to states where there is little to no state taxes.

-Stop all of the regulations that sending small businesses and big job companies out of the US.

-Completely change Obama's ridiculous executive orders. President Trump knows how to negotiate and get the Senate to get bills passed & and Republicans and Democrats can push aside their petty differences.

-Get rid Common Core out of the school system. Students are graduating high school barely learning how to read and write. Everything is done electronically for them (that's too easy).

-Overturn Roe vs. Wade. Check out this link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NfdRmnT0Weo

-Overturn Same-Sex Marriage. Check out this link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m8CrusikvWo

-Appointing Pro-life Judges. Check out this link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8P8gsI6Yq8

-Enough of Obama's 6 years you can be in College. Not everyone finishes school in 6 years. It takes some people longer. I can vouch for that because it took me 15 years (I took a lot of different routes). School should be affordable and financial aid should be for those who qualify not loans when he or she is over the financial aid limit with Obama's years college rule. 6 year College rule should be changed to as long as it takes for people to earn their college degree.

-Protecting our borders and making the US safe for those who are legally here who come from other countries and make those who are here already who is illegal should earn their stay here in the US by getting their paperwork and their green card.

-Excellent benefits for Military Veterans.

-Excellent healthcare for Senior Citizens.

-Strategically defeating Islamic Terrorism. We ready to wipe out ISIS using excellent strategy.

-Rebuilding highways, bridges, buildings, and fixing roads that are a complete mess.

-Making the inner cities a safe place to live in.

-Jobs, Jobs, and a whole lot of Jobs out there. Too many people who are on welfare and getting food stamps. The jobs are too competitive & not enough jobs are training people to work and become successful.

-Pro-Israel. As Conservative Christians we must stand with Israel. Please check out this link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JhGWshBwHt0

 

Mentioned above are some of the expectations that we expect from President Trump. Let's Keep our President in prayer. People had fault with the 44 Presidents before Trump was elected. We are not going to like every President we have but we need to give our elected President a chance to turn things around. Trump will listen & Trump is our leader. #TrumpPence2016 

Fictional Story: Madeline's Fictional Story

Madeline's Heart Necklace

 
Madeline Stephens is a beautiful brunette hair and blue eyes woman who lives in Bakersfield, CA. Madeline always wears her heart necklace. She never goes anywhere without the heart necklace. Madeline wrote a wonderful fictional story that painted a picture about me & describes who I am as a person. Coming for a person who enjoys blogging fictional stories myself, Madeline have a clever way of writing a fictional story about a blogger. Below you will see in her title A Story of A Blogger.
 
A Story Of A Blogger Fictional Story
 
 
The story portarys an African American or black male who is in his late 30s. This young man have been blogging online for approximately 5 years. Anonymous is what he is known for being because at times he is Anonymous. This young man hardly take credit for anything that he does. The same young black man tries to carry himself in a way that others try to do the same thing. This young man is known for his creativity coming up with really wonderful fictional stories that seem to be more real than fictional have no idea that this fictional story is all about him. Without giving this young man away is the reason why he is remained nameless and Anonymous.
 
Anonymous have 2 blogging websites that he blogs on. Mr. Unpredictable is a "right on the money" way to describe Anonymous because his writing style is exactly unpredictable. With that being said, this young man is really talented by engaging readers and other writers like himself. Anonymous enjoys writing a good ending to stories whether it 's happy endings or not so happy endings. Anonymous is really good at creating characters and their personality and brings out their emotion through his writing whether Anonymous is emotional or non emotional Even-though I'm a lady in this fictional story, Anonymous don't have nay idea that this fictional story is about him. Anonymous can be too unpredictable even for him & he is definitely an independent thinker both under pressure and not under pressure. Anonymous can't help but to be shocked by this fictional story about him. Anonymous tries to get people to showcase their hidden talent like Anonymous is showcasing his hidden talent in the online writing that he does. Anonymous is really effective at using dialogue in his stories (if those stories uses a lot of dialogue) and stories without dialogue too. Anonymous have successfully took writing to a whole new level and made it a form of art. Anonymous know how to really make something that can be a challenge such as writing be a whole lot of fun.  

Tampa Bay Buccaneers What are we doing?

Tampa Bay Buccaneers need an overhaul?

 

I've been a Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan for 17 years now. I've been following the Bucs for over 20 years. For 21 years the Tampa Bay Bucs were underachievers and the losing seasons and really bad records were a reflection of that. The Bucs were laughingstocks since 1976 (the year the Bucs became a franchise). The Bucs didn't start being a good team since the year I graduated from high school which was 19 years ago. The Bucs were a team to beat in 1997-2002 (The Bucs were SuperBowl Champions in 2002). Tony Dungy made the Bucs relevant from 1995-2002 as head coach and Jon Gruden made the Bucs SuperBowl Contenders his very first season as head cooach. The Bucs made the playoffs as a Wildcard under Gruden 2 times since they won the SuperBowl (2005 and 2007). During the span of 2009-2016 the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have hired and fired 3 head coaches and have recently hired another coach to be the Bucs new head coach Dirk Koetter being the Bucs 4th head coach hire. The Bucs has had only one winning season with a record of (10-6) in 2010 (missed the playoffs) under then head coach Raheem Morris. As a fan, Bucs fans might be panicking over the different coaching changes Raheem Morris (2009-2011), Greg Schiano (2012-2013), Lovie Smith (2014-2015).

 

I can honestly see it if the Bucs owner was firing coaches that he hired if the Bucs were trying to hire elite coaches who have been proven successful with other teams that they coached like Mike Holmgren, Bill Cowher, or Tom Coughlin (nothing against Lovie Smith because he did an excellent job as head coach of the Chicago Bears even took them to a SuperBowl in 2006 until he was fired). The Bucs firing coaches are for reasons that is puzzling to me and I know other Bucs fans can kind of agree. In my humble opinion, when you are firing a coach or coaches because you think that your offensive coordinator, defensive coordinator, or assistant coach is being offered or sought for coaching vacancies for other teams after the regular season is over that means it's time for you to wish them success elsewhere. The greatest of coaches see their offensive coordinators, defensive coordinators, or assistant coaches being offered coaching vacancies elsewhere and those coaches can afford to wish them well because they know it's all apart of the business. Why hold on to anyone or firing someone because you feel that you're at risk of losing someone you really like. Correct me if I'm wrong but sometimes you have to gamble. I personally felt that the Bucs should have given Lovie Smith one more season as head coach. When the Bucs went (2-14) in 2014 the Bucs had Josh McCown & Mike Glennon as their Quarterbacks and there is a reason why we only won 2 games and we had the #1 draft pick too. Last year the Bucs went (6-10) and #1 draft pick Jameis Winston had a great rookie year. We were (8-24) in 2 seasons with Lovie Smith as head coach and Lovie Smith was fired before he really had a chance to help the Bucs improve. To sum up the Bucs team in the past 7 years is that the Bucs as a team is looking like the victims to other teams like the Bucs used to before the Bucs started beating teams (which has been a while). Really good teams that have had bad losses to mediocre teams at best is looking forward to playing the Bucs so that they can take out their frustration by whupping the Bucs. The Bucs D is atrocious and they can't seem to cover no one defensively. The Bucs D is soft coverage & often missed assignments on receivers which was not the case when Tony Dungy or Jon Gruden was the Bucs head coach. I'm a faithful Bucs fan and I will never be a bandwagon. In fact, I have 2 favorite teams (The Bucs and the Titans) and I may like a 3rd favorite team at some point. When I'm looking at what we are doing as a team hiring and firing coaches and none of these coaches are elite head coaches I'm starting to shake my head and wonder what are we doing?

Hillary Clinton's Health Scare

Hillary Clinton's Health

 

Hillary Clinton has kept her health a secret. No matter what Clinton says she has not got over losing to President Obama for the Democrat nominee in 2008. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ljDreFox2Yw Hillary Clinton has fell on an airplane (not hard), fell and had a concussion (where she had to wear thick glasses for a month because of double vision), and nearly collasped during 9/11 Memorial of those who have loved ones and family members who lost their lives' during the terrorist attacks.

 

 

 

 

Clinton has lied about her emails, lied about Benghazi, and lied about her health. Clinton has even lied to cover up her lies. I'm not a fan of Clinton but in all honesty and fairness it's not logical for a candidate who have all of this baggage going into the debates (the first one a week from tonight) who is not well. Clinton refuses to step down and that is her choice but she needs to start thinking about the fact that her emails, Benghazi, and her health will be with her throughout the debates and after the debates.

 

 

I like to see a good debate and I'm often reminded of the Bush, Jr. and Gore debate back in 2000. Those 3 debates were excellent. It took about 4 recounts to decide after what had happened in Florida.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xezR5x8exfg  I honestly, would prefer to see debates like the Bush, Jr. and Gore debate. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TMdjUsDf0U4  This will be the first debate and I've been watching these presidential debates since 1988, that one candidate have so much baggage going into the debates in Hillary Clinton that I have ever seen. It might not be a bad idea to let Senator Elizabeth Warren and Donald Trump debate each other because it reminded me on Bush, Jr. and Gore in 2000. This is just my opinion and if y'all agree or disagree with me that's fine. I just want to say be respectful with your comments either way. Just My 2 Cents.

Kevin Durant has been with the Seattle Super Sonics for a year and the Oklahoma City Thunder for 8 years when they moved to Oklahoma City. Durant was the #2 overall pick in the 2007 NBA draft with the Seattle Super Sonics. Kevin Durant has experienced some highs and lows in his NBA career. Durant has always been loyal to the fans and to Oklahoma City but when Kevin Durant became a free agent Durant had a choice to either stay in Oklahoma City or go to Golden State. Durant decided for him that the perfect basketball move was to sign with the Golden State Warriors. The media went back from a tweet that Durant tweeted to Lebron James about not teaming up with a team that you're trying to beat when LeBron James announced back in 2010 that LeBron is taking his talents to South Beach in Miami. Thunder fans are thinking that Durant is guilty of doing the same thing by signing with the Warriors. The Warriors already have a championship caliber team in place, completely different case of scenario because Dwayne Wade recruited LeBron James and Chris Bosh to come to Miami to be the big 3 when it came to the leading scorers on the Miami Heat. LeBron couldn't convince Bosh or Wade to come to Cleveland because the Cleveland Cavaliers didn't have the superstars other than LeBron at the time either.

 

Thunder fans must know how it feel to have a super star break their heart like that because Cavaliers remember going through the same thing 6 years ago. Fans have to understand from an NBA basketball player point. The Thunder always had a good starting 5 but every time Durant and his Thunder got knocked out of the Western Conference Finals by a more talented team the question is/was would Durant ever win an NBA Championship. Durant was tired of coming up short and the media questioning can his Oklahoma City Thunder rebound and be the title contenders with the scoring duo of Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. In my humble opinion, the reason why the Oklahoma City Thunder blew their 3-1 series lead against the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference finals was because of lack of depth. Durant and Westbrook was logging heavy minutes because the Thunder lacked some key scorers that help left their bench to help take the load off of Durant and Westbrook which at times I felt that Westbrook played like a true point guard and played a shooting guard trapped in a point guard's body hoisting up too many jump shots. Durant decided to go on a team he wanted to beat (that being the Warriors) that was a championship caliber team because of his team (that was the Oklahoma City Thunder) lack of depth so Durant don't always have to carry the scoring load. The Warriors are very stacked as a team, play really well together as a team so that every one will get their shots and points. Durant gives the Warriors another scorer that will help take the pressure off of Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green. As a fan you never like to see your favorite superstar of your team go to the team you want to so beat but it's part of the business. If Durant becomes a free agent again just maybe Durant may come back to OKC if and only if OKC have a championship caliber team.

American Idol Season 15 Farewell Season

Trent Harmon vs. La'Porsha Renae battled it out last night for American Idol Season 15 Farewell Season.

 

 

The last season of American Idol did not disappoint last night. In all 15 Seasons of American (Some seasons I missed), I can honestly say that I'm excited for whoever win on American Idol Farewell Season tonight. No matter who win the state of Mississippi will represent because both contestants is from Mississippi. The show produced a winner from my state of Connecticut last year in Season 14 when Nick Fradiani won (The first time that had ever happen) & has always had winners from the south and a lot stories of the different contestants humble upbringing and being raised in single parent homes. The show even had some funny really terrible auditions but the show has also produced some good battles of the title as well. Although this show is wrapping up it's final chapter, I am glad to say I watched American Idol and tuned in whether I was at home or out of state. AI will be missed & hopefully Fox will come up with something new to replace AI.

 

 

Super Bowl 50 Broncos 24 Panthers 10

 

 

 

I've listened at how the different Sportscasters on the radio & on television predicting a Panthers Super Bowl win because everyone saw how the Panthers breezed through the regular season with a (15-1) record respectively. The Panthers breezed through the Seahawks 31-24; the Panthers were up 31-0 at halftime & the Seahawks outscored the Panthers 24-0 in the 2nd half to make it respectable. We can't forget how the Panthers throttled the Cardinals 49-15 and we were already to crown the Panthers Super Bowl Champions before the Super Bowl even began at Levi Stadium in Santa Clara (home of the San Francisco 49ers stadium) because the Broncos barely got by the Steelers 23-16 and the Patriots 20-18. Then we forget how the Broncos defense (ranked #1) played a big part in stopping teams in close games.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cam Newton was taking selfies on the sidelines & all of a sudden reality sunk in. The Broncos tenacious D had Cam Newton running for his life as the Broncos D sacked Newton 7 times and the Broncos D forced 3 Panthers turnovers. If you were to tell me that the Denver Broncos were to dominate the way that they did and hold the Carolina Panthers to 10 total points I would have thought no way. The Panthers getting routed 24-10 was a good learning lesson for them. Panthers fans your Panthers will be back here and contending for more Super Bowls to come. It takes a young team to learn from a loss and mature like Panthers. I have the utmost respect for Peyton Manning winning his 2nd Super Bowl. If Peyton Manning has played his last NFL football game at 39 then he will leave the game on top with 2 Super Bowl rings (1 with the Colts & 1 with the Broncos) tied with his little brother Eli Manning (2 with the New York Giants). Congratulations to the Denver Broncos for winning the Super Bowl & Congratulations to Von Miller for being the Super Bowl's Most Valuable Player (MVP). Gary Kubiak & Wade Phillips had a well designed game plan on how to stop Cam Newton & the Panthers #1 ranked Offense and it worked to perfection.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Donald Trump skipping Fox News Republican debate

 

 

 

Donald Trump says that he will skip tomorrow's Fox news Republican debate because of Megyn Kelly. For those of you who are a big Megyn Kelly fan or who are not a big fan of Kelly's, Kelly mentioned to Trump by saying, "Trump you refer women that you don't like as fat, unattractive, and ignorant." Trump referred his comment back when Donald Trump and Rosie O'Donnell had their spat when Rosie O'Donnell was on The View back then. Rosie O'Donnell was basically calling Trump a macho jerk and was imitating how he talked and said that Trump have fake hair. Trump like Trump has always has done when someone insults him Trump responded by saying that Rosie O'Donnell is an unattractive woman and that Rosie O'Donnell is fat and ignorant not all women. Megyn Kelly mentioned how Trump referred to Carly Fiorina as looking unattractive and boring. Fiorna responded by saying, "America understands how Trump feels about women." What I got from Fiorina's statement is that everyone understand the difference when someone is being insulted because of their gender in Trump's case (being referred to as a male chauvinist) and when someone is being insulted because they know that he or she in Fiorina's case (being a big threat in the Republican party) which is what Trump meant when he said that Fiorina is looking unattractive and boring. Trump know that Fiorina is a threat to the Republican party and that is why he didn't insult her the way he insulted Rosie O'Donnell. Wow, I said a mouth full.

 

With Trump skipping tomorrow's Fox News debate, Cruz could decide to either tell his well designed plan on what he would do if he is president or he could focus on attacking Trump in Trump's absence on the Fox News debate. I honestly think that in my humble opinion, that it's best that all of the candidates should really focus on what their plan would be if they were president because that is what the Republicans, Democrats, Independents, Undecided, etc., want to hear. Attacks are turnoffs especially when candidates is not talking about their well thought provoking plan on how he or she is going to make things better. Just My 2 Cents!

 

 

 

 

Some Overrated Jobs

Advertising Accountant Executive

Stock Broker

Architect

Psychiatrist

Management Consultant

Attorney

Surgeon

Physician

Flight Attendant

Advertising Agency Executive

Bookkeeper (It all depends on where you are working at)

Events Coordinator

Public Relations Manager

Broadcaster

Computer Programmer

 

Wow, I was surprised at some of the jobs that were considered overrated. I think I was surprised by Architect, Bookkeeper, Flight Attendant, Broadcaster, & Surgeon the most. These jobs are viewed as overpaid because the work that is put in these jobs is not the same like most hardworking jobs, therefore the income is substantial. People who are head boss over these jobs, people tend to view them kind of people as arrogant. In my humble opinion, some people that are doing these positions are not arrogant at all they are just people that happened to be blessed to be promoted to a lot of the different head positions. "The more we help people who are starting from the bottom & who are working their way up top the better we will be." Those are the kinds of people who I want to be associated with. I hope all of my readers that are doing these kinds of jobs above are inspired by the quote mentioned above. Most importantly "never forget who your real friends are" I hope that all of my readers enjoy!

Word of the Day: Don't worship worldly things

Sports car

Big Manison

Silver, Gold, and Money

 

As an old fashioned person, I'd rather be a blessing to others having alot of money than keep alot of money & just spending it only on myself. We as Christians should not act Holly when we come into money or blessed with money. What mean by acting Hollywood is being caught up into worldy things such as the following mentioned above: fine cars, big mansions, silver, gold, money, etc. That kind of stuff is nice but it's not the ultimate reason why we are blessed. We are truly blessed when we are a blessing others with what we have. A good Bible Verse Luke 12:13-31 which will come from the King James Version. Christians are encouraged to read this Bible Verse from the translation that they have. This is a good word & a good message for those who think that they are high and mighty and think they can be successful without the Lord's help. 

 

Luke 12:13-31King James Version (KJV)

"13 And one of the company said unto him, Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me.

14 And he said unto him, Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you?

15 And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.

16 And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully:

17 And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?

18 And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.

19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.

20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?

21 So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.

22 And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on.

23 The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.

24 Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?

25 And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit?

26 If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?

27 Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

28 If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?

29 And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind.

30 For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.

31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you."

Having Faith In Our Prayers Poem

In the rough and tough times

We have to be able to understand

Why we need to be patient

Why we need to trust the Lord

Why we need to have an open mind

'Cause it's during those times

When our faith is being tested

Wondering why disappointments come our way

We may not always understand

But we have to trust the Lord's plan

In order for us to prosper in our lives'

No matter how much the enemy tries to cause strife

No one said that things would be easy

The great thing about it we can always pray

'Cause the Lord hears our prayers

We may not always think he always answer them

Realizing we have to believe

That there is nothing too hard for God

He is always on time and he never fails

Our faith should never waver

When we pray

We should be grateful each and every day

For the Lord's many blessings

Even when the Lord uses unlikely people who are like angels

People who we wouldn't expect

The Lord proving to us how he can change the coldest of hearts

And showing us how he works in mysterious ways

Our faith should never waver

When we have faith in our Prayers

My thoughts on the debates

 

 

On Saturday I had a chance to glimpse at some of the Democratic Party debate in Des Moines, IA. I had a chance to see Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, and Martin O'Malley go at it. These debates are like the preseason in sports. Everyone know that we won't know who have the edge until we listen to the primaries when the candidates campaign in the key battle ground states & in both the blue liberal states & red conservative states (which is like the regular season in sports). Clinton has the experience, Sanders is an outsider and O'Malley is unknown. We all like to read about stories how some people we don't know wind up surprising every one, we enjoy stories like that. I feel that Sanders can surprise people in the Democratic party. Sometimes it's not always about "people who know your name" like with Hillary Clinton being so well known & being another Clinton running for president. It's something about Sanders that I see in Sanders that Sanders have potential to give front runner Clinton "a run for her money."

 

Meanwhile, we have a stacked Republican Party debate with the different candidates trying to earn that spot for the nominee to try to be President. I have not been able to watch any of the debates on because I don't get them on TV. I only have basic cable. However, I am able to hear the sound bites from the debates on the news. The 2 outsiders in the Republican Party being Donald Trump & Ben Carson has provided such a spark. What I mean by that, is that Trump can take criticism and he can also give criticism that is just Trump's style whether you like him or dislike him. Carson just shut you up in a cool & quiet way with just a few words. People respect Trump & Carson's style which is different from each other yet provide enough spark that Marco Rubio is inching up in a distance 3rd place and Ted Cruz in 4th place. When the primary kicks off in February of 2016 we will known who has a chance at winning the nominee for both the Democratic Party & the Republican Party. The winner from each party will debate each other and the winner will be our President (like in sports the winner will be champion). I've been noticing something out Carly Fiorina, that this woman can be a Wildcard (someone who comes out of no where and surprises everyone). Fiorina is a strong woman who is fiery & outspoken and what I noticed about Fiorina how direct (get straight to the point) with people Fiorina is when they ask her questions about the issues. Fiorina in my humble opinion is an outside threat to her party & should not be underestimated. Fiorina kind of reminds me of both Michele Bachmann & Sarah Palin. Those were just my observations & 2 cents and if you agree with me that's fine and if you disagree with me that's fine too, then we can agree to disagree but lets be just respectful.

 

Some planners

Planners do a lot perhaps more than people think.

Wedding Planner

Activity Planner

Event Planner

Party Planner

Game Planning (Soccer Drill)

Vacation Budgeting, Planning, and Savings

Catering

Event Photography

 

 

Probably one of the most underrated thing that anyone does where people are attending events is those who are in charge with the different of all the planning. When you have more than one people doing the planning, then it makes his or her job a whole lot easier.  In my humble opinion, planners deserve a lot more credit than they get just a "thank you" but if you're a planner, then know what it is like when it seem like everything is all on you to make an event, party, wedding, etc., how the pressure can be on you. I hope that all of my readers enjoy!

Reward & Punishment

There will be consequences for our actions whether good or bad.

 

Top learning experience #3 1992- A lesson in not plagiarizing

 

I am 13 going 14 and I went to a private school way out in Newington on the New Britain line. The name of the private school was Emmanuel Christian Academy. I wrote stories for an English teacher and averaged 84, the lowest being a 68 and the highest being 90 I do believe. I've always done my own work and was NEVER EVER known for plagiarizing a story before so what did I do? I did something that I don't normally do in that case which was a bone-headed move on my part. I plagiarized this one story for my English class and boy was my teacher upset with me. The teacher knew I had already gone home so she called my mom and told her that I plagiarized a story that I had written. I knew I was in trouble but what I didn't know was how serious was the crime. Anyway, my mom was so upset with me that she grounded me for a month (I couldn't watch TV for a month). I went to my English teacher’s class after the incident & boy was she very irate with me. My English teacher face was really red. My English let me have it with her harsh words and I deserved every bit of the tongue lashing.

My English teacher said, “You got one nerve pulling a stunt like that! Do you know that you could be expelled for this?” I’m not going to expel you for this because that would be too easy!”

I responded, “My mom grounded me for this.”

My English teacher answered, “For how long?”

I replied, “I can’t watch TV for a month.”

My English teacher angrily said, “Good now write your paper over!”

 

The teacher knew that I was not that kind of student so she made me write my story all over again and guess what? I got an 87 on this story (not plagiarizing) sometimes when you do bone-headed things you usually have a reason for it,  my reason was simple I wanted to be caught and severely punished and I had absolutely both happen to me all in one day. My teacher was convinced to give me 1 point to pass her class (63 which is an F but the 64 gave me a D) so I wouldn't stay back 2 times. I would be 14 going into the 8th grade. I learned a very valuable lesson in not plagiarizing and NEVER EVER plagiarized on any work that I had done for a class ever again.

 

Top favorite surprise that I've experienced #2 In the Spirit of giving 1992

Ms. Krabappel gives Bart an extra point (grade goes from a 59 to a 60) to give Bart a D- so that Bart would pass to the 5th grade. My story is similar to Bart's.

 

I remember taking a final exam for my English class at private school. I was 14 and I worked really hard on my final exam and passed it. The exams were graded and my English teacher had all of the students’ final exam grades on it and showed us what our final grade would be. Everyone had passed. A few fellow classmates had got the D that he or she needed to pass so that they would not have to repeat a grade. I had like a 63 which was about 1 point shy of a D (63 and below was an F). My English teacher had just gotten married during early spring of 1992. Every one appeared to be either going to the 8th grade or 9th grade because the classroom was set up for 7th & 8th graders to be in the same classroom. My teacher had asked for all of her students to sign her yearbook. I remember how far I've come since the incident when I plagiarized one of the stories I had wrote for her. I remember how severely grounded I was but you could tell that my English teacher had such a forgiving heart & how much she cared about me to give me another chance.  Anyway, I had a chance to sign my teacher's yearbook back in May of 1992. What I said was heartfelt and I even remember asking her if she could please give me 1 point that would give me the D. Mind you she could have said no and I would have had to repeat the 7th grade and I would have been 14 in the 7th grade instead the 8th grade. My English teacher wrote a note to me, which I was hesitant at first to read but finally read what it had said. My teacher said to me "Paul you have a wonderful summer and yes you get the extra point I have changed your grade!" My grade went from a 63 to a 64 to give me the D and I passed to the 8th grade. I was surprised to read that note that said that but I was also relieved and grateful!

 

Mentioned above was my reward & punishment example that I've experienced. Whatever we do whether good or bad there will always be consequences for actions both good & bad. There is always an important lesson to learn whenever we mess up & the reward will always come when we do the right thing. I hope my example of reward & punishment encourages those who are in the same situation when choosing between right & wrong. I hope that all of my readers enjoy!

 

 

Todd McNeil vs. Andre (Killer) Morris Heavyweight Championship (Rounds 1-5)

Brooklyn, NY (This is Andre Morris rough neighborhood.)

Scranton, PA (This is where Todd McNeil is originally from and grew up here until he was 13 years old.)

Philadelphia, PA (This is the neighborhood where Todd McNeil moved to from Scranton when he was in the 8th grade and all through high school. Vinnie his trainer used to come in this neighborhood to teach Todd McNeil how to fight.)

 

Andre Morris grew up in Brooklyn, NY where he was known as killer because of his killer instincts. He knew where to hit people where it really hurts and would knock out people with his famous uppercut or quick rabbit punch. Andre Morris came from a background where his parents were strung out on drugs and his grandparents raised him. Practically all of his life, Andre Morris had to fight on the streets to survive. At the age of 15 Andre Morris started going to the boxing ring to learn how to box. Andre Morris was trained by Gus who taught him everything that he knows and at the age of 28 Andre Morris has an impressive record of 35-0. Andre Morris beat the best in New York and he KO 30 fighters along with winning the other 5 fights by TKO. Andre Morris was well trained by Gus during his practices and Morris won titles after titles. Morris won the heavy weight title when he knocked out former Champ Herman Burns in the second round.

 

Meanwhile, a scrawny kid by the name of Todd McNeil came from Scranton, PA. This kid learned how to fight because he used to get beat up by bullies in the 8th grade and all through high school. Vinnie would invite McNeil to the boxing ring to teach him how to fight because McNeil used to have black-eyes. Todd McNeil decided to finally learn how to fight when he was 18 and he went through light weight boxing matches where he would learn to develop as he would fight different fighters from all parts of Pennsylvania. A bum named Richard Newton went the distance with Todd McNeil when they fought in Philadelphia. This fight was the worst light weight fight that the crowd in Philly had ever seen. The 2 guys traded punches back and forth until McNeil finally got the advantage when he knocked out Newton in the 7th round. Todd McNeil now at age 29 has a record of 29-5. 

 

McNeil's trainer Vinnie said, "I got to tell you this kid, you have a lot of heart and you give it your all everytime

 

you step into the ring."

 

Todd McNeil replies, "I want a shot at the heavy weight title against Andre (Killer) Morris Vinnie!"

 

Vinnie answers, "Kid he will knock you into next week, you don't stand a chance against this kid."

 

Todd McNeil's response is, "But I'm hungry, I can go the distance and pull off an upset just train me."

 

Vinnie replies, "I admire your optimism but he will knock you out kid."

 

Todd McNeil answered, "I can beat all the odds that are stacked against me."

 

Vinnie says, "You know what you got a lot of guts kid and I will take you up on your challenge and set up the

 

title bout with you and Andre Morris."

 

"All I want is a chance to prove to the world that I can pull off the upset," utters Todd McNeil.

 

Andre Morris issued a challenge to anyone who wanted to challenge him for the title.

 

He responded by saying, "If there is a challenger that will fight me and can last 5 rounds and can beat

 

me then I will congradulate him for beating me."

 

Todd McNeil stepped up and said, "Hey Andre Morris I will challenge you for your heavy weight title!"

 

Andre Morris replied, "Alright Todd McNeil you're on, the fight will be in Madison Square Garden!" 

 

The fight would take place in Madison Square Garden. The trainers had a chance to train their fighters for the title. No boxer was taking anything lightly. Vinnie was working on helping Todd McNeil's focus level for the fight. Andre Morris was taking out his aggression on the punching bag.

 

It was a sellout crowd at Madison Square Garden and the ring announcer would announce the fighters as they prepared to fight.

 

Vinnie gave Todd McNeil some words of advice by saying, "The best advice that I can give you is to fight this

 

guy hard kid and go out there and win!"

 

Todd McNeil was motivated from that.

 

The announcer said, "First the challenger at 5' 11" tall weighing at 205 LBS from Scranton, PA Todd McNeil."

 

Naturally the crowd booed because Todd McNeil was from Pennsylvania.

 

Then the announcer said, "And here is your heavy weight champion at 6' 1" weighing at 215 LBS from

Brooklyn, New York they call him the "Killer instinct" Andre (Killer) Morris."

 

The crowd is on their feet cheering their hometown favorite champion Morris.

 

The ref told the 2 fighters, "Hey, I want a clean fight, no hitting below the belt, and watch out for the rabbit

punches."

 

The bell rings for round 1 to begin: Andre Morris is lighting Todd McNeil up with a series of right and left uppercuts to the face. Todd McNeil tries to punch Andre Morris in the jaw but Andre Morris ducks and uppercuts Todd McNeil in the stomach. Andre Morris is catching Todd McNeil with quick jabs to the face. Todd McNeil was trying to fight back but couldn't connect with any of his uppercuts. Andre Morris again is lighting Todd McNeil up with more quick jabs to Todd McNeil's face and have him up against the ropes and they are holding each other. The ref tells them to break it up. McNeil is able to get in a couple of jabs to Morris's head right before the bell rings. It was the end of round 1 and Morris takes round 1 easily against McNeil.

 

Both boxers go to their trainers and Vinnie tells McNeil, "Hey kid don't quit because you have more heart

than him; he is just a fighter like you."

 

Gus tells Morris, "You got him right where you want him, put him away kid."

 

The bell rings for round 2 to start: Morris is catching McNeil with a series of lightning quick jabs and uppercuts to the chest and stomach. McNeil catches Morris with a nice uppercut to the head. Morris answers with an uppercut to McNeil's face and cut his eye open with that vicious blow. McNeil is trying to fight back with his one good eye and is able to to catch Morris with uppercuts to his stomach and ribs and is able to catch him with a nice left hook to the jaw and knocks him on the ground. The ref counts 1, 2,3,4 and Morris gets back up. Morris is trying to catch McNeil with rights and lefts jabs but McNeil is dodging his hits. The bell rings and the fighters go back to their trainers. After 2 rounds it's even at 1 apiece.

 

Morris was stunned by McNeil's left hook in Round 2 of their Heavy Weight Championship boxing match that knocked Morris on the ground. Morris was able to get back up after the 4 count.

 

Gus to Morris: "Kid don't play nice, you got to beat this punk up good!"

 

Vinnie to McNeil: "Nice round McNeil you was able to weather the storm. Stay in the fight kid!"

 

Round 3 begins: Morris catches McNeil with a series of jabs to the face and head. McNeil tries to catch Morris with a right hook to the face but Morris dodges it and uppercuts McNeil in the face and continues to catch McNeil with jabs to McNeil's face. McNeil catches Morris with jabs to his chest and stomach. Morris catches McNeil with uppercuts to the ribs. McNeil tries to uppercut Morris in the head but Morris dodges it and catches McNeil with uppercuts to the face and a really nice uppercut to the jaw that sent McNeil to the ground. The ref counts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 but McNeil somehow gets up to beat the 10 count. Morris is toying with McNeil with jabs to the face and head and jabs to the ribs and stomach. McNeil answers with uppercuts to the stomach. McNeil tried to catch Morris with a right hook to the jaw but Morris ducked and uppercuted McNeil in the face that sends McNeil right back on the ground again. The ref counts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 but McNeil fights through the pain and refuse to stay down as he gets back up to beat the 10 count again. Morris clearly dominated the challenger McNeil in that 3rd round as the bell rings and both fighters go to their trainers.

 

Gus to Morris: "Kid you gave that kid the VIP (Very Intense Pain) treatment more punishment kid more punishment!"

 

Vinnie to McNeil: "McNeil continue to fight hard because you have a heart of a champion kid!

 

Round 4: The bell rings for round 4 to begin. McNeil catches Morris with jabs to the head and stomach. Morris continues to catch McNeil with those lightning quick jabs to the face and head. Morris is catching McNeil with uppercuts to the stomach and Morris catches McNeil with a series of jabs to the ribs. McNeil answers with jabs to Morris's face and chest. Morris waits patiently for McNeil to do an uppercut which McNeil tries to uppercut Morris in the head but Morris cleverly dodges it and have McNeil up against the ropes. Morris catches McNeil with a nice left hook to the face that sent McNeil to the ground. The ref counts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 but McNeil gets back up in time with a second before being knocked out for the count. The fighters go to their trainers as the bell rings and it's the end of round 4. McNeil took a brutal beating in these last 2 rounds. Morris takes rounds 3 and 4 by knocking down the challenger McNeil 3 times before he got up to barely beat the 10 count every time and it was on to that decisive 5th round. McNeil took a brutal beating those last 2 rounds.

Finally, it was time for the bell to ring for the decisive 5th round for the title. Morris continues to beat on McNeil with a series of rights and lefts jabs to his ribs. McNeil looked so exhausted from the punishment he took in rounds 3 and 4 but McNeil never quit. McNeil put together a combination of jabs to Morris's face and head. Morris tried to hit McNeil in the other eye to try to cut it open but McNeil was able to duck and was able to catch Morris with uppercuts to the ribs.

 

Gus angrily responded, What are you doing kid, fight back don't go toe to toe with this kid he will knock you

out!"

 

Morris wasn't fighting smart at all and allowed for it to be a trading punches fight with him and McNeil.

 

Vinnie said, "Go for it McNeil you got this kid!"

 

McNeil and Morris continued to trade punches in the 5th and decisive round. McNeil caught Morris with a right hook to the nose and a nice uppercut in the eye. McNeil was jabbing away at Morris's chest and stomach. Morris tried to move back but was up against the ropes. McNeil uppercuted Morris in the jaw and Morris fell on the ground. The ref counted 1, 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10.

 

The ref said, "You're out! The winner and the new heavy weight champion Todd McNeil."

 

The crowd cheered as Todd McNeil who was an underdog pulled off an upset to Andre Morris. After the fight was over Todd McNeil and Andre Morris shaked hands and Andre Morris congradulated Todd McNeil.

Fictional Story: Creation Museum Field Trip

Florence Antique Mall Florence, KY

 

 

Meredith Fields is a divorced 49 year old mother of 4 children all girls & is a 5th grade teacher of 10 students in Pittsburgh, PA. Ms. Fields have children who are very ambitious, there are children in Ms. Fields class who are Christians & with how the school system has changed since introducing Common Core to the curriculum, a couple of Ms. Fields students who are outspoken about their strong faith in God thought it would be a good idea if the class went on a bus trip from Pittsburgh, PA to Petersburg, KY to go to the Creation Museum there. Ms. Fields have never confessed to being a Christian but is really serious about giving her life to Jesus Christ. Ms. Fields not only believes that this field trip to the Creation Museum will inspire those to learn more about Christ but it would inspire other secular schools to plan field trips to the Creation Museum.

 

The class is planning on going from Friday-Monday to Kentucky with parents chaperoning as well as teachers chaperoning. Food & transportation is provided for this educational field trip Friday September 25, 2015- Monday September 28, 2015. The class will also get a chance to purchase souvenirs at the Florence Antique Mall in Florence, KY. The class will have a half a page- one page paper due October 9 where they will write about their experience at the Creation Museum.

Top 5 Airports I will never forget

#5 O'Hare International Airport Chicago, IL

 

It seem like it was a little over 14 years since I've last changed in this huge Airport. When I think about O'Hare, I can't forget the time me, my mom, and my step-father went to a church conference back in '93 & and the church conference was near in the O'Hare Airport. I also changed here a couple of times going to Tulsa, OK.

#4 Chicago Midway International Airport Chicago, IL

 

Much smaller than O'Hare International Airport but I've changed here going to Tulsa, OK. The 2 Airports mentioned are Airports in Illinois that I will never forget. These 2 Airports are O'Hare International Airport & Chicago Midway International Airport.

 

#3 Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport Chattanooga, TN

 

How could I forget this tiny Airport? When I used my free $350 voucher to come to Tennessee back in 2010, I pictured the Chattanooga Airport being pretty big. It didn't dawn on me while I was flying in a little express plane that that had a lot to do with the size of an Airport. I also flew back coming out of this same tiny Airport back in 2011.

 

#2 Dulles International Airport Washington, DC

 

This Airport is pretty big & there are 2 things that I remember about changing in this Airport. When I was discharged (general but honorable discharge) from the Army Reserve, I went to a restaurant in this very Airport. An Asian woman noticed that I had my Army Reserve hat on & the slushy that I ordered the woman had given me a discount, then a friendly woman who worked at the desk changed my ticket & booked my flight from Dulles International Airport out of Washington one way to Bradley International Airport to Hartford when my flight to Philadelphia was overbooked. The woman had given me a free $350 voucher to fly anywhere in the US & it was good for a year.

 

#1 Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Hebron, KY

Creation Museum Petersburg, KY

 

The name of this Airport threw me off. The times  I've changed in this Airport I've changed here to go to Milwaukee, WI, Kansas City, MO, & Tulsa, OK also coming from these states to go back to Bradley International Airport to Hartford. Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky is a pretty big Airport & I hear it's about an hour & 30 minutes from Downtown Cincinnati. I hear a lot about the Creation Museum in Northern Kentucky. I've changed in this Airport enough where I feel that I will visit Kentucky soon. It happened to a lot of Airports that I used to change in a lot just passing through to my final destination until those states were my final destinations. 

 

 

 

My take on Kim Davis being released from jail

Kim Davis should have never went to jail.

 

 

Kim Davis first of all should have never went to jail. Kim Davis I felt did the right thing by not issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. I feel that more Christians like Kim Davis need to take a stand & stand up for their Christian beliefs, the reason why a lot of Christians are not standing up for their beliefs is because the teaching & doctrine that they are being taught in churches is compromising such sin as homosexuality. There is no one who is going to tell me to comprise what I feel is right to try and suit 2%-3% population that say they are LGBT (Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) that is morally wrong. When the Supreme Court voted 5-4 that the 50 states legalized same-sex marriage 2 months ago, counties in Texas, Kentucky, and Alabama were not compromising. Marriage is & always is between a man and a woman, it's in the constitution. No one tried to shove it down the throats of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender because we love everybody but what we don't like is the sin but since the Supreme Court made their ruling we are supposed to let them shove it down our throats if what we believe what the Bible say about homosexuality is a sin to accept homosexuality as normal? I don't think so. I am proud of Kim Davis for what she has done & and I am happy for what Mike Huckabee did by helping Kim Davis get released from jail. I am also proud of the 300 plus supporters that rallied for Kim Davis being released from jail. I was prepared to sign every petition I got emailed to support Kim Davis. I think Kim Davis should continue to stand up for what she believe is morally right!

Favorite Music

Mentioned below I will have 6 different music genres that I like & 3 selected picks from each genres.

Gospel Music

 

 

Soul Music

 

 

R&B Music

 

 

Christian Music

 

 

Country Music

 

 

Soft Rock Music

 

 

Mentioned above were some selected favorite songs from the different genres of music that I like. Growing up me & my family listened to Gospel & Christian music at church and at home. Since I've been grown I have listened to the following genres of music: Gospel, Christian, Soul, R&B, Country, Soft Rock, Classical, Pop, Acoustics, etc. I have more of an appreciation of the different genres of music a whole lot more now than I did back then. The thing we can agree to disagree about music genres is that we can say that the music that we didn't like before or didn't listen to before, after listening to that genre or genres of music that we can say that we can like that genre or genres of music now. That may not be the case for all music genres but some.

 

Why I have decided to get blogger as my 2nd website

I've been writing online with my own websites (Yes I have 2 websites wix & blogger) for approximately 4 1/2 years now. I have enjoyed & loved every minute of the writing I have done. When I first decided to get my own website 4 years ago, I had to adjust to having my own website. This is coming from someone who was used to being on websites for approximately 11 years now. I have seen & observed things on websites especially social networking websites. The very first website I decided to get was blogger back in 2011. I had my old blogger from 2011-2012. One day I decided to get a new website and expand (do more writing and put up more pictures on it) and I got wix in 2012. I have been on wix 3 years now. Last week it came to me to get a new website (this very website that I first started writing on) and that website is blogger. I guess that you can say that both blogger & wix are my 2 favorite writing websites. Blogger is my website that I alternate on when I'm not writing on wix. I have been keeping up with this online writing for 4 years now so in a way having 2 websites is what I really needed. Below is the links to my website blogger.

Encouraging those with special needs

 

 

There are a lot of people who are parents of children with special needs. There are parents who also adopt children with special needs after already given birth to their own children. Those who have special needs both adult & children want to have an opportunity like everyone else to get a good education & have job opportunities. I'm going to tell a little story about what it was like for me. I hope this will encourage both children & adults with special needs.

 

Top Favorite Surprise That I’ve Experienced

 

#1 Super Award Most Improved 1987 Written September 16, 2014. Edited August 21, 2015.

 

I am going to tell my readers off the bat, that from the time I started Kindergarten 'till the 2nd grade I was taken out of the different teacher's classes. The problem was that the teachers doubted that I could do the work & keep pace with the fellow classmates in my classes in Kindergarten-2nd grade. The different teachers tried to say I was a slow learner because I wasn't the quickest learner or the smartest grades wise. However, I always let their comments help me to stay motivated. Believe it or not those very discouraging & hurtful comments that people said about me was what motivated me and I never gave up. After I stayed back in 2nd grade at 8, I was taken out of Special Education and put in Ms. Bloom's 2nd grade class. Ms. Bloom had her doubts about me because Ms. Bloom never dealt with a kid who came from Special Ed & Ms. Bloom didn't know if I could keep pace with the rest of her 2nd grade class. As a kid I was all too familiar with hearing the word "can't" and my mom ( a single mom of seven all boys) was all too familiar with coming down to my school and telling the different teacher's off when I'm proving them wrong. I will never forget the meeting that Ms. Bloom, my mom, the principal, and I had. The principal said these very words to my teacher Ms. Bloom, "It's your job to make sure that every student in your class get up to the level where they all need to be and Paul need to be given that chance. If you don't shape up and fly right and help Paul be up to the level that he needs to be then you are out of here!" Ms. Bloom never heard anything like that before but it was what she needed to hear. The words "You're fired!" stuck in her head to where she changed her attitude about me. I remember the fun we had in Ms. Bloom's class going on the different field trips, having parties, watching really good movies, as well as watching good educational shows. Most importantly, I remember how far I've come in Ms. Bloom's class & progressed tremendously. I will never forget June of 1987 when Ms. Bloom was handing out awards to her students. I was 9 and perhaps the absolute biggest surprise was receiving a Super Award for Most Improved student. I do believe that my fellow classmates were more excited for me receiving my award than they were for receiving their award or awards. I was in awe as well as surprised to receive such an award & I was grateful to pass to the 3rd grade along with most of my fellow classmates!

 

That little story about me above is the reason why I never let what people said to me discourage me. Those with special needs want to be encouraged that he or she "can do anything if they put their mind to do it!" Those words of encouragement and being patient is what children & adults with special needs need. If you're a single parent (just mom or just dad) or parents (both mom & dad) to children (both your own children & adopted children) instill that he or she "can do anything if they put their mind to do it." Whether you were ridiculed & made fun of not when you were in school, you need to do your part by subjecting children with special needs in an environment that is devoted to helping him or her achieve their personal goals. I hope all of my readers enjoy!

Looking back at my 20's

I've learned to trust God more now in my late 30's than I did when I was in my early 20's.

 

 

I've been listening to a really great program on the radio for like 5 months now on WIHS 104.9 FM called The Boundless Show Saturdays at 11 AM with Lisa Anderson & the program is a blessing. The show had me thinking back when I was in my 20's. A lot of us who were in our 20's had expectations of graduating from college at 22 or 23, working a good paying job, and being married at 25. Somewhere down the road you get all kinds of advice from people if you are single & they mean well but not all of them quite understand your situation. To be honest I never really got advice when it came to marriage because people who knew me from church or who knew me outside of church knew & could sense that I was serious about marriage & having a wife when I was in my late teen's and early 20's. I never set a time when I was going to finish college so I was never in a hurry to graduate college but when the time came from me to graduate from college I was going to be inspired by people who were an encouragement to me.

 

When I look back to my 20's, the only regret I have is that I didn't have more counselors who were like mentors. What I mean by that is that the counselor's job is to give you good advice when you are preparing to graduate from high school and college & he or she usually help you by writing a letter of recommendation, help you with your resume, and helping you prepare for job interviews. A lot of counselors that knew me could sense that I had an idea what I wanted to do with my life but never felt that I needed a mentor or mentors because they seen in me as a mentor to people who were younger or who were my age. That might have been true but I needed to mature & I felt that I could have benefited tremendously if I would have had mentors telling me things like, "I know what it is like to grow up in a single parent home like you did with just mom or just dad mainly raising me by their self." I felt that if I would have gotten more words of wisdom from a mentor or more investment from him or her that, that would have helped me to not have my doubts about college(when at times I had doubts about going to college or graduating from college after graduating from high school). Mentors are people that usually help you bring out the best in you when you don't always believe in you.

 

Now when I look back to my 20's, I realized how more patient I should have been & understand that if I expect to meet any expectations such as finishing college, working a really good job, and being married & having a wife that I was going to have to trust in the one who has the plan in his hands! I'm not the only Christian that had things that didn't work out for them like they thought they would. Lisa Anderson has wonderful topics on The Boundless Show.  Lisa Anderson has a panel of discussions from singles & married perspectives ranging from 20's- seniors. The Boundless Show is what I tune in on the radio every Saturday. Now that I'm in my late 30's I trust in the Lord more because he has got a plan for my life Jeremiah 29:11-13 (KJV). I encourage you to tune in to The Boundless Show on the radio in your area if you get this program because it's positive, encouraging, and thought provoking!

 

 

My views on women bosses & coaches

Pat Summit story is truly an inspiration to all women

Becky Hammon will have a head coaching job in the NBA sooner than anyone think.

Georgia Frontiere Owner of the St. Louis Rams (1927-2008)

 

I finally get a chance to touch on this subject in a blog that I am looking forward to writing about. My views on women as bosses', coaches, owners, etc., I think is a great part of making history. What I mean by that is that we know about what women went through. Like anyone else who had to overcome adversity, women had to overcome a different adversity (discrimination because of their gender). I respect Pat Summit, Becky Hammon, and the late Georgia Frontiere, etc., for what they have accomplished. 

 

From personal experience I had a boss who was a woman & what I admired about her while working for her when I was in Chattanooga, TN is the respect she had for all of her employees that were working for her. Basically, you show up to work, do your job, and respect your boss, then everything is all good. I'm saying this to say this, in my humble opinion, it does not matter who is over you whether it's a man or woman as long as you respect who you are working for then you will have no problem.  I have nothing but respect for women that started from the bottom & worked their way up to the top. I've learned that there are bosses who really don't like bossing people around who are under them. If you become really cool with your boss, you tend to find that most bosses will tell you to do things almost like if he or she is asking you a question. 

 

My take on Commissioner Roger Goodell Upholding Tom Brady's 4 Game suspension

Tom Brady's reputation is that he is losing credibility & considered untrustworthy

Ted Wells Investigation on the New England Patriots deflate-gate

 

 

Here is the scenario. First you have one of the winniest coach in Bill Belichick, who has believed Tom Brady when Brady have repeatedly said that Brady has done nothing wrong. Secondly, you have an owner Robert Kraft who said that "the NFL should apologize for falsely accusing the New England Patriots of wrongdoing if the investigation have no prove of the New England Patriots deflating footballs," and you have a Commissioner Roger Goodell who have in a lot of people's opinions has gotten it wrong with the Ray Rice situation & Adrian Peterson situation, and lastly you have Tom Brady who says he have done nothing wrong & did not tell the ball boys to under inflate the footballs. Now we have a major problem. Tom Brady has not cooperated & insists on saying he has done nothing wrong, yet he agreed that he would cooperate when the Ted Wells investigation happened to see if Tom Brady was telling the truth or not. 

 

In my humble opinion, I think that not only was Tom Brady not honest when Brady was asked if Brady told the ball boys to under inflate the footballs but that Brady sent text messages on his cellphone that was later destroyed because Brady knew that that was the only key evidence that would prove that Brady was lying & totally trying to pull a fast one over on Commissioner Roger Goodell, coach Bill Belichick, and owner Robert Kraft. The New England Patriots took the $1 million fine and took being stripped of the 1 & 2 round NFL draft picks because Kraft & Belichick felt that it was not worth fighting a losing battle going to court. We have to remember that Goodell is popular with the owners of all 32 NFL football teams, all of the owners pay Goodell's salary, and Goodell has made the NFL rich. The NFL fans come out and support their teams and the Stadiums & Domes are sold out when games are played there. Brady is fighting a losing battle because Goodell is upholding Tom Brady's 4 Game suspension. Brady wants to take this to court because Brady feels that he is innocent & continues to maintain his innocence. Brady could have had his suspension reduced to 0-1 Games and just a fine had Brady would have just admitted to having the ball boys under inflate the footballs during the New England Patriots 45-7 thumping of the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Championship Game in Foxoborough, MA. 

 

The question remains is Tom Brady's legacy as a great Quarterback tarnished because of spy-gate & deflate-gate? Well, let's look at the facts. The Patriots is 3-0 in Super Bowls winning each one by field goals spy-gating & 1-2 in Super Bowls not spy-gating (The New England Patriots defeated the Seattle Sea hawks 28-24 by 4 points and that was not confirmed until Russell Wilson threw a costly interception on 2nd and goal at the Patriots 1 yard line). You can talk about doing stuff to gain an advantage all you want but in my humble opinion the New England Patriots could have stepped it up in practice and Tom Brady could have let his presence be known on the football field. There is a way to get yourself pumped up & fired up without sneaky cheating ("everyone does it") method. I think Brady will be the Top 5 QB of all time whenever Brady decides to retire but critics & and New England Patriots fans will wonder what if Brady would have never been involved with spy-gate or deflate-gate would Brady have still won those 4 Super Bowls. Brady is fighting his 4 Game suspension but Brady need to be smart & realize he is only hurting the New England Patriots in the long run fighting this kind of battle. Brady's arrogant demeanor will prove that "just because he is Brady that he is not above the law."

Comforting words of wisdom

 

 

Comforting a mom who have a special needs child 1991 Written Jun 21, 2014. Edited July 15, 2015.

 

I will never forget the experience that my family and I had at UCONN Health Center with a woman who is a mom of 2 boys (one of her boys being a special need). We went to UCONN to visit my mom's sister (me and my older brother's Aunt) who had recovered from having major surgery (Open Heart Surgery). My mom, step-father, and older brother went to the recovery room at the hospital where you had to be at least 17 years of age and my brother could go because he was 17 but I had to stay out front in the main lobby because I was only 13. Here is where the experience happened; my family met a woman (Hispanic woman) back in 1991 who was at the hospital because of her son's condition (a vegetable state). The woman was really friendly and I got along with her kids one of her son's might have been my age and the other a couple of years younger than me. Anyway, you could look at the woman and tell that she was hurting on the inside. The woman was going through a serious problem in her marriage to her husband because one of her son's vegetable state condition. The father of the baby didn't want to have anything to do with their baby because he was a special needs child. Probably the worst feeling in the world is a parent saying that he or she don't want to have anything to do with you because of your disability.

 

Meanwhile, my mom had a chance to comfort the woman and they both shared the same name Yvonne. My mom told her a story about the time she had my older brother and how my older brother was so big when he was a baby that the doctor had to break both of his arms (which is the only reason why my brother is left-handed) and the doctor didn't think that my older brother would live and that if my older lived he would be a vegetable state for the rest of his life. My mom is a praying warrior so when she hear negative things she know that it was nothing but the devil that will try to discourage a child of God. My mom knew that my older brother would live and that he would walk. My older brother was a fighter and my mom kept on saying encouraging words to him saying "You will walk in Jesus name and you will not be a vegetable!" My mom knew my older brother was on a walker because he had to use that to help him walk and my older brother was inspired and my mom said that my brother was walking at 7 months and it got to the point where my older brother didn't need the walker anymore! The Bible verse that comes to mind is "Colossians 2:6-7 King James Version (KJV) As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving." http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Colossians+2%3A6-7&version=KJV This is a Bible verse that parents can pray over their children even if they're a baby like my mom prayed for my older brother. Yvonne started to feel better after hearing my mom's testimony because she knew we all understood what she was going through and what she had to deal with. Yvonne was sweet enough to give me her Spanish cookies and Yvonne (the woman of her special needs son) and Yvonne (my mom) had exchanged phone numbers and they kept in touch on the telephone for 1 1/2 years up until my family and I moved from Hartford to Bloomfield in 1992.

 

What a fellow classmate said to me that made my eyes run water 1999 Written July 1, 2014. Edited July 15, 2015.

 

I'm in my 4th semester at Manchester Community College (MCC) and I made friends the 2 years I attended that college. It's 1999 and at 21 I met some friends who were in Food Service for their Culinary Arts Program. Some graduated from Culinary Arts in 1998 and some were graduating in 1999. You meet a lot of classmates from all parts of Connecticut in different towns. There are those classmates who grew up with both parents raising them, (everyone called them the rich kids because they tend to have everything and lived in the Suburban parts of Connecticut), there are those classmates who were like me that grew up in a single parent home, (they were considered to be inner city kids that were considered not as rich and they lived in the Urban parts of Connecticut), and there were those classmates who grew up in an abusive home and were adopted because their parents didn't love them). MCC back in 1999 was predominately white students, some black students, and some Hispanic students. I happened to make friends of all races because I am used to blending in with people. I learn from everyone because that is how I was brought up. I will never forget the time I met Jose' when he was in Culinary Arts. Jose' was Hispanic and was about 21 or older. I had met him back in 1998 about the same time I met classmates that was in Jose's Culinary Arts class. Food Service was a class where they made food for breakfast and lunch Monday-Friday from 9 AM- 2 PM. I had a little of breakfast (one time blueberry pancakes) and some lunch (wrap sandwiches). This was a normal class that involved participation, exams, and baking and this was done for 2 semesters (from fall to spring) and the students graduated in May.

 

Meanwhile, graduation was approaching and the professor(s) had encouraged all the students that were graduating to invite all of their family & friends. Graduation was hooked up with all kinds of food. I was invited to attend Culinary Arts graduation class of 1999 along with former students who graduated Culinary Arts in 1998 at MCC. I had a chance to meet a lot of families who were attending graduation. The parent or parents had a chance to watch their son's or daughter's graduate, the brothers or sisters had a chance to see their siblings graduate (younger and older than the students who were graduating) and Aunts, Uncles, and friends, etc. When it came to Jose' I noticed that I didn't see any of his family at graduation and that was a major shock to me. I remember asking Jose' "Jose' where is your family?" Jose' response was what made me view family in a different way, Jose' said, “You're joking right? I have family in New Jersey & New York but my family is the ones who graduating with me right here and all of those whose families & friends who came to the graduation!" Hearing Jose' tell me that made my eyes run water because there are so many kids whose parents who don't care about their children. I didn't know if Jose' was one of those kids who had a really rough life growing up but Jose' didn't have to say anything because he taught me that sometimes family does not always mean that it's your blood family (parents & relatives) that come to your graduation but it's your close friends who were like blood family that were there that made your graduation priceless. I remember saying to Jose' "Congratulations!" when Jose' received his diploma for graduating from the Culinary Arts Program at MCC.

 

What a woman said to me that made my day 2003 Written July 7, 2014.

 

You never know who you will meet even at a supermarket. I will never forget the spring of 2003 when a brunette hair woman stopped to talk to me while she was leaving then Waldbaum's (now BIG Y) supermarket at Bishop Corners in West Hartford. The first thing she said to me in a friendly way, "Hi young man." I responded to her by saying, "Hi." The Lord put it on this woman's heart to ask me, "Are you are Christian?" I answered her, "Yes I am." The woman then asked me, "What is your name?" I replied, "Paul." As we greeted each other, the woman said, "Nice to meet you Paul I'm Marilyn." and I told Marilyn that it was nice to meet her too. But here's what Marilyn said to me that really touched my heart and really made my day when Marilyn said, "God Bless You Paul and you are more than welcome to come and fellowship at my church Church Of The Living God. Church Of The Living God is in Manchester right on the South Windsor line and across from it was then Applebees on Deming St. Marilyn's act of obedience to witness to me or invite me to her church really blessed me! Yes, I've was saved 20 years at the time but to hear "Jesus Loves You" is always good to hear no matter if you are saved and someone who is leading you to the Lord and by me being so receptive, Marilyn felt comfortable chatting with me. I told my mom because my mom was with me at the supermarket. As an act of obedience ourselves, we got directions to Church Of The Living God and went to church services for many months (maybe 6-8 months) because of Marilyn and hoping to see Marilyn in church. We missed Marilyn but it was nothing but an angel that sent Marilyn across my path. I never got a chance to say "thank you for being such a blessing to me" to Marilyn at church but I'm reminded of the 2 good Bible verses after a wonderful experience that I had at the supermarket. 1 John 5:4 and Matthew 5:16. 1 John 5:4 simply says, "For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith." Matthew 5:16 is another Bible that I like and Marilyn demonstrated when she was chatting with me which simply says, "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."

 

A Good Samaritan Written February 17, 2015. Edited July 15, 2015.

 

Luke 10:30-37 (KJV) "And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. And by chance there came down a certain Priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed on the other side. And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him om his beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee. which now of these three, thinkest thou, was nieghbour unto him that fell among the thieves? and he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise."

 

Yesterday, I heard a testimony on the radio station KLove on my cell phone which is 106.9FM on my station where I'm from that I will never forget. The testimony was about a woman who was going through serious problems in her marriage to her husband. The woman was told to purchase a book that an Author wrote about dealing with problems that people have in their marriage. The woman couldn't afford the book & a young woman co-worker was praying & asking the Lord how can she help this woman out. The woman & the young co-worker both work at the same place in Georgia. The young woman had never been married before but the Lord heard her prayer and put it on her heart to go to her car. The young woman I do believe name is Jennifer. Anyway, Jennifer went to her car and got a book that was a solution that all problems that anyone face. Jennifer got The Holy Bible, the King James Version (KJV) because Jennifer felt that this was the one book that the woman who was going through a rocky marriage could use that was better than any book that any Author could write when it came to people having problems in their marriage. Jennifer said she read John 3:16 (KJV) to the woman in distraught, which simply says, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." Jennifer said that the woman's whole attitude she had towards her husband changed after reading 3 or 4 chapters of the Bible. The woman not only feels a lot better about her marriage, but the woman told Jennifer that she would go to church with Jennifer on Sunday. When I heard this testimony on KLove, I couldn't help but to think of the story of a Good Samaritan. When it comes to helping others, we have to picture our self in their situation and that is exactly what Jennifer demonstrated when she helped out her co-worker. When we have problems that seem too much for us and need help, we can find the solution to our problems in the Bible. This was a really great testimony that I thought that I would sure on my blog!

 

"It's A Brand New Day" Written February 27, 2015. Edited July 15, 2015. 

 

A woman told a testimony about a young man at a gas station that the woman drove to in Dayton, OH. The area that the woman drove in Dayton was the rough area. This young man was a heroin addict & anyone who looked like that had money, the young man would ask them if they had $10. The woman went up to the young man and the young man asked the woman if she had $10. The woman not only felt lead to give the young man $10 but the woman also felt lead to give the young man a hug, too. I do believe the woman said that the young man's name is Anthony. The woman said that Anthony begin to melt and started bawling. Anthony told the woman that it cost $10 to shoot up heroin and that was what Anthony needed the money for. Most people would have avoided Anthony "like the plague" in any bad area of town let alone the bad part of Dayton. Anyway, the Lord put it on the woman's heart to say to Anthony that, "God knew before I gave you the money what you were using the money for." Anthony had a job where he was making pretty good money. Most people would think why would anyone who haves a good paying job would stoop so low? It does not matter how much money anyone have, if he or she don't know Jesus or accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior then they are lost.

 

Meanwhile, the woman had a chance to talk to Anthony again when the woman drove to the same gas station again in Dayton, the woman saw Anthony there. Anthony told the woman how much he turned his life around after the conversation they had before when they met at the same gas station. Anthony got a Graphics Design degree from school & Anthony told the woman how he listens to KLove. Anthony mentioned to the woman day in & day out and night in & night out that Anthony listens to It's A Brand New Day by Mandisa. When I heard the woman tell her testimony on KLove about how Anthony have turned his life around, I am reminded of the Bible verse 2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJV) which simply says, "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: Old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." The confirmation of that same Bible verse is when Anthony told the woman that he still has the $10 & how Anthony didn't use the money to spend it on heroin. The Lord sent the right person across Anthony's path & Anthony's testimony is an example of that!

 

 

I thought that it would be a great idea to write Comforting words of wisdom. We all have good & bad days but suppose we are more sensitive to how we treat others or others concerning their situation? Well, check out these stories that made me more sensitive to others situation that were written above. I hope that all of my readers enjoy!

#3 My older brother's High School Graduation 1992 Written August 2, 2014. Edited July 14, 2015.

 

My older brother at 18 graduated from Weaver High School in Hartford. My brother graduated from high school with high honors (I do believe he graduated with a 3.8 GPA). My older brother is considered the "miracle baby" because of what he went through when he was born. The doctors didn't think he would live or even walk but my older brother not only beat all odds but my older brother always got good grades in school. My brother had people of all ages who looked up to him (younger and older as well as the same age) when my older brother graduated from high school, my older brother inspired me to work really hard in school like my older brother did so when it was my time to graduate, a lot of family & friends will be at my graduation like they were at my older brother's graduation. My brother's graduation was great!

#2 My High School Graduation 1997 Written August 2, 2014. Edited July 14, 2015.

 

I was perhaps discouraged in every possible way a person could discourage anyone in school from elementary school, private school, and high school. I had problems with a few teachers that discouraged me and I was even recommended by a teacher to be put in 2nd grade special education when my mom took me out of 1st grade from a teacher who took it upon herself to discipline me (whupped me with a belt). My special ed teacher held me back in 2nd grade and was very discouraging to me and from there I was taken out of special ed and put in Ms. Bloom's 2nd grade class at the age of 8. I was the type of person who channeled a lot of negative things that people said to me. I didn't always get the best of grades in school but with that being said, I could always get the score or grade I needed to when I was in danger of failing a class (do my best under pressure when I'm at my worst do my absolute best). Anyway, my family being at my high school graduation was priceless because it showed that hard work really does pay off. I even had my fellow classmates & their family and friends rooting for me when I was graduating with my classmates from Bloomfield High School in Bloomfield (Graduated and proved the naysayers wrong). Yes I did it!

#1 Marissa's College Graduation (Ms. Mercedes daughter) 1997 Written August 2, 2014. Edited July 14, 2014.

 

One of the things that inspire you when you graduate high school is going to college and graduating from there too. Marissa & her older brother by a few months Chris were like family to me. Marissa 21 going on 22 graduated from UCONN up in Storrs. What made going to Marissa's college graduation priceless was that it was the same year I graduated from high school (double fun). I remember Ms. Mercedes had a cookout for her daughter Marissa at Ms. Mercedes house in Windsor. There were all kinds of food that was there especially Spanish food too. I grew up eating some of Ms. Mercedes Spanish food that she used to always cook (no matter how much Ms. Mercedes son Chris used to try to tease his mom about her cooking). Marissa graduating from college inspired me to go to college because I would eventually walk across that stage and get my college degree like Marissa walked across that stage and got her Bachelor's Degree at UCONN. Guess what, after 15 years of not quitting despite the routes I took, I graduated from Capital Community College (CCC) and received my Associate's Degree in General Studies. Till this day I use any negative talk that people say about me to motivate me!

 

Top 5 Great Experiences

 

#4 Milwaukee, WI 2005 Written August 1, 2014. Edited July 14, 2014.

 

It does not matter what state you're in when you travel and go to church conferences, you always seem to meet friendly people (even if everyone is not friendly). I remember me & my mom went to a church conference in Milwaukee back in 2005 for a week. We met women named Ms. Faye, Ms. Mary, and Ms. Naomi while we were at the conference in Milwaukee. Ms. Naomi (a single mom) is a Wisconsin native of the Badger state and bought me & my mom fruit at a Market that had really good fruit which was a blessing! I remember we went to a great restaurant that had really good cheeseburgers (what the Badger state is known for that being great cheese) in Milwaukee. The other 2 women were from the Constitution state of CT like where my mom and I were from. Ms. Faye (divorced) was from East Haddam, CT. Ms. Faye had a sassy but outgoing personality and she really cracked us up at the conference. Ms. Mary (single) was a sweet woman from Hamden, CT and both Ms. Faye & Ms. Mary like me and my mom came to the conference in Wisconsin because they didn't have a church home either.

 

Whenever we would sing at the conference, Ms. Faye would tell Ms. Mary when she heard me sing that I could sing (Ms. Faye always sat beside me at the conference).  Ms. Mary then would say to me, "Paul I heard from Faye that you are a great singer and I should sit by you and listen!" (Ms. Mary sat beside me) Ms. Faye sat beside me in church and would observe how I do things and would tell Ms. Mary, lol. We all met a woman named Ms. Leah from Minnesota and a woman named Ms. Kathy from Australia one day, when we all had went out for lunch after coming from one of the conferences. We had all ate and my mom offered to pay for all of us and Ms. Leah said to my mom I will never forget, "Don't you dare I am paying for all of us, lunch is on me!" It's something about how the Lord works things out even when you were not expecting it (unexpected blessing).

 

Florida Memory 1995 Written February 21, 2012. Edited July 14, 2015. (With Quotes from original blog Florida Memories: 1986,  1990, 1995)

 

“July of '86 When we arrived in Miami, I remember meeting my grandparents. It was really cool I got to meet my aunts and cousins, too. My Grandma made her famous grilled cheese sandwich till this day I will never forget because it was so good. It was the first time that I had been down south and adapted to the south easily that summer. My cousin made some slamming lemonade that I enjoyed! I felt at home and it started the trend of wanting to go down south every summer.”

 

“June of '90… for the most part we went out to eat food at the following restaurants: McDonald's, Burger King, Pizza Hut, Dairy Queen, etc. The big fun that the family had is when we went to Orlando to Disney World! We went to Magic Kingdom, MGM Studios, Epcot center, etc. I never knew how much fun I would have until I went to all of those theme parks. The family was chilling and having a good time. We had been on so many rides like the Roller Coaster, Merry-Go-Round, Ferris wheel, Racing Cars, etc. We even did fun stuff after we left Disney World.

 

I remember when we went bowling and had a blast bowling against each other the three games we played. My scores were mediocre but I didn't care because I had an awesome time! I remember when we stopped by family's house and had southern food like Macaroni and cheese, collard greens, fried chicken, baked beans, apple pie, drank soda, and drank punch. I remember when we went to the mall shopping and bought postcards to send back home to friends. Disney World started a trend that had family think about going down south every year.”

 

Five years later, the Sunshine state started a family tradition that was popular for so many years. Tampa, FL restarted the Mary Reddick Family Reunion in late July of '95. I was seventeen and I remember working a little summer job. I remember saving up some money to go to the Family Reunion. I would take off a couple of days from work. My mom and I flew to Tampa. My sweet aunt was driving us around because we didn't know our way around Tampa. We enjoyed a little bit of sightseeing of Busch Gardens which was wonderful! Events wound up happening later than planned from what was on the program. To me it didn't matter because I was getting to see family. A lot of the same family I remember seeing when the family went to Florida in 1986 and 1990 were there.

 

I will never forget the time when we all ate at the picnic. We were enjoying some great grub that family cooked like Macaroni and cheese, collard greens, barbecue ribs, fried chicken, and some delicious strawberry shortcake. I remember my cousin had made this gigantic cake and the strawberries were on top of the cake, while the whip cream had smothered the strawberries. I must have had like seconds and thirds of the strawberry shortcake. I had also drunk a lot of punch and I was enjoying time off from work and away from home.

 

Meanwhile, the family was being recorded on TV and they asked every member to say something about their family and tell where they are from. I remember my younger cousins and I were at an arcade nearby and I missed that part of the family reunion. I remember how disappointed I was that I had missed out. It had dawned on me that I was being selfish; my family understood because when the family went on vacation we needed to get away from stress of things that go on back home. I had a time to reflect on that moment and was quiet most of the family reunion.

 

I remember when we were all sitting down eating breakfast and everyone was looking at the photo album of past family reunions. My mom was saying how she always wanted to go to the family reunions but couldn't afford to come back then. I didn't realize how big my family is until I looked at the album. I remember my aunts were talking about the previous family reunions, how everyone came to them, and how really good they were. When I heard all of that, I wished I could have been able to go to the family reunions back then.

 

Lastly, before everyone went their separate ways and went back to their respective places, the Sunshine state had an awards ceremony handing out various awards for different things and then it came time to read the Mary Reddick family tree book. Mary Reddick was an escaped slave, who freed all of the West Indians from slavery. I learned that that was what family reunions were all about. It was about learning all about your people. We all went to church and had an awesome time! My cousin had hooked me up with like a couple of boxes of doughnuts that I can remember and my mom and I brought some of the food they fixed for us to take on the plane with us. The memories of '86, '90, and '95 is what I think about when I remember Florida.

 

To all of my readers for those of you who are writers, y'all can check out some of my events to write about Part 2. I thought I would be creative by taking some quotes from the original blog titled, Florida Memories: 1986, 1990, and 1995 with Florida Memory 1995. In all honesty, if I didn't have stories to tell like this I felt my whole life story would have been boring. In fact if I didn't have any of these experiences I would have been wondering what could have I done to be an effective communicator. I hope this help my readers understand me the writer more.
