Fall, Autumn, Beauty in the New Season!

October 2, 2012 16 comments

 

Delicious autumn!  My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.  ~George Eliot

We live in the northeastern section of the US, so this time of year is Autumn for us in the “traditional” sense.

This is a video that I took last year at the Delaware Canal State Park in Yardley, Bucks County PA.

Our leaves change color (most years just amazing colors).

The temperatures shift colder.

The days get shorter.

People start celebrating Halloween and the spooky, scary shows and movies come out.

Kids are back in school.

Fashion changes to wools, sweats, and sweaters.

People are more awake and alert than they are in the summer.

The squirrels are busy building up their stores for winter!

Do you want to start getting some more income before the holidays?  We can help!

My friends are celebrating their Medicare Birthdays!

Barb Stakes and Lynda Mintz are good friends to many, and we are so happy to be in your circle!

You are both young and lovely with Big Hearts.  And, you throw a great party!!!  Thanks.

Sally and Joan

Barb!

Barb and Lynda are both great activists for Progressive Change, and wonderful supporters of Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.  I am so happy that they are both eligible for Medicare now.  We all became friends while working on projects with Robin Stelly at Penn Action.
I am so upset that I forgot my movie camera today.  Lynda’s group was amazing!
I thought it would be fun to see some photos of their recent work together in the last year or so to promote the good word.  You can see by this small sample of photos how wonderful and dedicated these women are to helping others.

Event to give a Voting Scorecard to Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick

September 28, 2012 Leave a comment

The Penn Action group of Progressive activists in Bucks County had a great day at the Levittown Post Office today.  The rain stopped and we had a good turnout, and a lot of drive by traffic.

We were working with the National week of action on giving “Scorecard” information to the people on how our Congressman had voted on issues that are important to us – the Middle Class and the rest of the 99%.
We are very concerned about the proposed Ryan Budget that the Republicans are promoting that will destroy the safety nets that are now in place for people with Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.

Many people think that Medicaid is for poor single mothers, and other types of families.  We believe that this is an important need in our society.

However, most families are touched by Medicaid when a family member runs out of money and needs services as they need to live in a skilled nursing facility.  This is also a Middle Class issue.
Check out the Penn Action Facebook page for more info!  http://www.facebook.com/PennAction

A bit about the Maori people and a great song!

September 27, 2012 14 comments

The Maori people are an Eastern Polynesian group that has an amazing history in New Zealand.

I find the Maori culture so rich and interesting.   You can learn a bit about the culture and people online.  This is the link to the Wikipedia site.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M%C4%81ori_culture

Here is a documentary if you are interested to learn more about their history.

I found this great motivational song today!

He Kakano Ahau
Born of Greatness
Hohepa Tamehana, 2001

It is from the Maori culture, and this is the website that has the translation for English lyrics -

http://folksong.org.nz/he_kakano_ahau/index.html

This is the video on youtube that helped me find this wonderful and motivational song.

I am a seed
Scattered from Rangiatea
And I can never be lost
I am a seed, born of greatness
Descended from a line of chiefs,
I am a seed.

Wherever I may roam
I will hold fast to my traditions.
My language is my cherished possession
My language is the object of my affection
My precious adornment
My language is my strength,
An ornament of grace

Whenever I stand,
I am clothed by my ancestors
My pride I will show
That you may know who I am
I am a warrior, a survivor
I am a remnant

Wherever I may roam
I will hold fast to my traditions.
My language is my cherished possession
My treasured Tiger Shell
My precious ornament
My language is my strength,
An ornament of grace

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Isn’t that beautiful?

Remember that you are a child of the earth, the sky, and the spiritual world as well.  You were meant to live a life full of prosperity and greatness.

Take a Chance, Do Something Different, Live Loud, Joyful and Colorful!

September 23, 2012 12 comments

 

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
? H. Jackson Brown Jr., P.S. I Love You

Wow, taking a chance and doing something new can be great for you.

You already know all the reasons to not try new things.  Here are some reasons to do it!

1.  Trying and learning new things is great for your brain, and keeps you young.

2.  Sometimes there are new things that work out great for you, and you might miss a good opportunity.

3.  Trying new things means that you will not be bored.,

4.  New things can freshen up your life and keep energy flowing so that you are interested and interesting!

You do want to be cautious if something is expensive, you do not want to commit to something that could jeopardize your financial health.

If you are looking for a new way to earn money online, please consider joining our international team at the 10K Challenge.

If you just smile,,,,,

September 21, 2012 36 comments

 

 

Smile
by Charles Chaplin  (yes, that Charlie Chaplin!)

Lyrics as Sung by Michael Jackson

Smile, though your heart is aching
Smile, even though it’s breaking
When there are clouds in the sky
You’ll get by…

If you smile
With your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just…

Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That’s the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what’s the use of crying
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just…

Smile, though your heart is aching
Smile, even though it’s breaking
When there are clouds in the sky
You’ll get by…

If you smile
Through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile…

That’s the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what’s the use of crying
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile
———————————–

In 1936 a film was made called “Modern Times”.  Charlie Chaplin wrote the music for it.  John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons added lyrics and the title in 1954.

The song was released in 1964 by Nat King Cole and another recording was made by Sunny Gale.

Michael Jackson recorded the song for the HIStory album, but it was pulled from the release and he never sang it live.  He did play a recording at the beginning of performances of the HIStory tour in honor of Diana, Princess of Wales after her death.

This is one of the videos that people have put together on Youtube.

The point of the song is that you can put a smile and move forward with a positive attitude.

Thing 1 and Thing 2

September 19, 2012 10 comments


My Aunt Sally wrote me a nice email today, and signed it Sally #1.  Ok, she was here before me!  And, I was named after her.

I told her that it did make me think of Thing 1 and Thing 2, and that I would probably blog about it!

Funny, but I forgot that there was a Sally in that story, too.  LOL

 

I always love Dr. Seuss.  He was a very wise man.  A few of his quotes:

“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”
“You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”
“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living.”
“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…”
“Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.”
“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”
“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”

I will definitely write more about Dr. Seuss and his work.

Dr. Seuss was just one pen name for Theodor Seuss Geisel March 2, 1904 – September 24, 1991.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dr._Seuss

As I surfed the web for info on Thing 1 and Thing 2, there was a lot of sites offering costumes for babies and adults!  I also found a Dr. Seuss wiki!  http://seuss.wikia.com/wiki/Thing_One_and_Thing_Two

We consider a day that we see wild deer, a really good day!

September 19, 2012 2 comments

 

We love animals, and have always enjoyed finding gentle deer families on out trips in the country or to a park.

 

We had a wonderful afternoon at Core Creek Park in Langhorne, PA.  It is one of our favorite ways to spend an afternoon with our dog, Buddy.

A video that I made of our still photos

Pink clouds before sunset!

Waiting in the car a few minutes with Buddy

Saw “Galaxy Quest” again tonight – fun and it makes good points, too.

September 17, 2012 11 comments

We just saw a favorite movie again on cable tonight.  I am so glad, because it makes me think of great things to share with you

I LOVE “Galaxy Quest”.  It was released in 1999 and always makes me smile.

I really enjoy looking up details of movies and shows on IMDB.com.  I love to see people in the cast that I didn’t remember, especially before they were famous!

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0177789/

The director is Dean Parisot.  He has directed a lot of great tv shows (like Monk), and another favorite movie of mine – “Home Fries” with Drew Barrymore, Luke Wilson, and Catherine O’Hara.

The movie is available on Netflix.com if you are a member, there.

https://movies.netflix.com/WiMovie/Galaxy_Quest/28369403?locale=en-US


The cast is so good -

Tim Allen (Toy Story,  The Santa Clause)
Sigourney Weaver (Avatar)
Alan Rickman  (Harry Potter)
Tony Shalhoub  (Monk)
Justin Long (Dodgeball)
Enrico Colantoni  (Just Shoot Me!)

The story is very sweet and appeals to kids as well as middle aged geezers who grew up on Star Treik!  That’s me.  LOL

The group was in a tv show, kind of like Star Trek.  Now, they do conventions, paid appearances, etc.  Tim Allen’s character is bored, sloppy, rude, and drunk.

Tim Allen has a great story line where he learns to be fair and be a man, and share credit with his friends.

Then a group of real aliens come to Tim Allen for help.  They think that the “historical documents” (the tv shows that they saw) were real, and that this crew can save their species.

Enrico Colatoni is just amazing in this movie.  He plays the reluctant leader of a species of aliens that look kind of like octopuses (I had to look up the correct plural for octopus!).  They have a device that gives them a human form.  He is a sweet and innocent creature, in difficult circumstances.

The TV show’s catch phrase was “Never Give Up, Never Surrender”.

How great for our lives as well!

You can give up on your dreams.  You can never surrender to your fear and anxiety about success.

We want to help you!
