Ouch! I Have a Bunion on My Right Foot

Ok, so my right foot was in so much pain yesterday. I need to go to the doctor for this one. Needless to say, I didn’t get my Wii Fit in at all yesterday. I did today though. Today I did Yoga and Step Aerobics. I even opened advanced step. Yay ME!

Day 2 of 30 day Wii Fit Goal

Yesterday I said I was not going to go into too much detail everyday. I had a very long weekend. I spent most of it with Mommy and my nieces and nephew, and William and Allan.

I spent the night at my brother’s in Sumter yesterday. I got home this morning and had to go to William’s football banquet tonight. I had to force myself to get my Wii Fit time in. To be honest, I think I’m addicted to the Yoga.

Ok, so today I earned 15 Wii Fit Credits. I did 2 Yoga poses, 1 Strength Training exercise, Hula Hoop, Super Hula Hoop (over 300 spins!  I love that Hula Hoop), and Step Aerobics.  Oh yeah, I did that soccer head thing too.  I need to do that one more because I'm not good at that at all.

My Wii Fit age went up to 34.

Day 1 of 30 Day Wii Fit Goal Part 2

Actually this is day 1 of this 43 Things goal, but my 51st day since I started using my Wii Fit. So, the first day of this goal was so much fun for me. I started out with Yoga. I did ALL 6 of the Yoga poses available to me. Yay Keala! Then I did 4 Strength Training exercises that worked my abs, back, and legs. When I first started using my Wii Fit, I only did Yoga and Strength Training.

Today was the first time I ventured into Wii Fit Aerobics. Oh My Gooooodness. That Hula Hoop was fun. At first I didn’t quite get it, but once I got the hang of it and I LOVED it! So today I did Hula Hoop, Basic Step, and Basic Run. I got my workout on. I did so well on Hula Hoop I unlocked Super Hula Hoop.
After Aerobics, I ventured on to the Wii Fit Games. Since today was really the first time I tried those games, I didn’t do so well. I was just trying them out to see how they were anyway.

Back to Hula Hoop, I got William doing the Hula Hoop. That boy has abs of STEEL. They are diamond hard. He didn’t do well his first time, but once he got the hang of it, he did really well. When they throw the hula hoops at you, they kept hitting his big head, but he overcame that.

I probably won’t be going into this much detail everyday of this goal. I may just post my stats as I did before.
Here are my stats for day 1 of this goal:
*Wii Fit Age: 33
*BMI: Obese
*Weight: 25lbs more than I should weigh
*Today’s Time 39 minutes


Day 1 of 30 Day Wii Fit Goal

Going to get started now. Just wanted to record that I started. Will post my results later. Please encourage me to do this. I really need to keep at this.

RSSMicro introduces FeedRank for RSS Feeds

Having trouble viewing the email below? click here.

RSSMicro Search Engine
RSS Feed Search Engine
Search 8.2 million RSS feeds
The most comprehensive RSS feed search on the web
About RSSMicro FeedRank

Dear RSS Feed Publisher,

RSSMicro is happy to announce a free ranking service for RSS feed publishers. FeedRank Checker is tailored to rank millions of RSS feeds and now you have the opportunity to submit your feed and calculate your site FeedRank.

(Instant results, no registration is required.)

PageRank is an algorithm developed by Google which measures the level of importance of a link and correspondent HTML page. As we make more contents available in RSS format the demand grows for a ranking system which can effectively measures the quality of the contents published on RSS feeds.


A community vote mechanism developed by some companies for ranking RSS feeds offers a very limited results for millions of active RSS feeds and proved to be insufficient and misleading. Some ranking methods use link popularity and limited traffic data which also offers relatively good results but for a very limited number of feeds. Also certain companies tried to offer customized algorithm which failed in early stages. Unlike others RSSMicro developed a new algorithm which applies to all RSS feeds on global scale, it measures and quantifies several areas in RSS feeds including but not limited to the popularity of the source and a new content analysis algorithm called Feed Delta.

Feed Delta
Feed Delta is a mechanism in which it measures unique information across articles, ensures the quality of the contents on the source. In an array of articles, all articles must consistently offer rich content so that the array can get a higher delta value, the value represents the Feed Delta in an RSS feed. The concept is based on the fact that computer generated spam websites or websites with little or no valuable content currently have difficulties in simulating an array of articles with high delta values.

FeedRank Checker
RSSMicro generates the FeedRank results for millions of RSS feeds in its database, you can also submit and calculate FeedRank results for your site on RSSMicro website at:

Or submit a new feed at:

FeedRank is a work in progress and the algorithm is constantly being optimized with emerging sources and new publishers, yet the Feed Delta concept behind the data analysis algorithm is well established and passed many tests in RSSMicro labs before launch.

2012 The Movie

I should have waited until the actual year 2012 to see it.  If you've seen one natural disaster movie, then you've seen 2012.  It was very unoriginal.  It didn't even have a few good one-liners.  I like coming away from a movie with a few good one liners.  I didn't get any from 2012.

The storyline was very common and predictable.  Miss Cleo could have predicted that one.  Yes, we as humans must treat all humans as if we are part of the same human family.  If you

The special effects were almost worth the THREE HOUR TOUR.  Yes, 2012 was 3 long hours long!  I think the special effects and weak story line kept me awake during the THREE HOUR TOUR.

So, we stayed up way past our bedtime last night and got up way past our rising time this morning.  It's all good because we have peace, we're happy, and we're in love.

“There is no way to peace, peace is the way.”

“The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in.”

“Celebrate the happiness that friends are always giving, make every day a holiday and celebrate just living!”

Thanks Again

Greetings!  I am so glad we had this holiday!   I really needed it.  It was getting really bad.  My attitude was starting to bother ME.  I really needed this break!

So, now that turkey day is over and Black Friday is over, we can all rest for real.

My turkey day was okay.  William went with his dad on the eve of Thanksgiving.  Allan decided he wanted to go to his dad AFTER dinner was done.  I had to say no.  My range decided to break down right before Thanksgiving, so we bought a pre-cooked meal from Piggly Wiggly.  It was delicious.

If this writing seems ho-hum, it's because in spite of me trying to have a good attitude I am feeling somewhat ho-hum.  Honestly, it bothers me to be in the company of ungrateful, negative people.  There, I said it!

Today I am thankful for:

  • Dinner from Piggly Wiggly
  • my neighbor who let me use her range to warm my dinner
  • peace and quiet
  • love of my friends and family
  • inner happiness
  • mail running on Black Friday
Enjoy the rest of your holiday.

Here I Go Again

Well, I said I would start blogging again and what better time than now.  I was in the bed minding my own business working on some sleep when Antonio called and said he KNEW I was awake.  Well, NOW I AM AWAKE.  It's cool.

Blogging again was on my mind tonight anyway.  I didn't know how I would start, what I would say, how I would say it.  So I decided to just start typing.  Type whatever comes to my mind.  Kind of like Nike. Just Do It.

It's been a long time since I've done this, so I feel really rusty.  What have I been doing?  I've been reading my mail, working, going back and forth with the wasbund regarding the children and our court stuff.  It's no news that I got engaged.  The only really big news is that a very close sister friend of mine has been diagnosed with breast cancer.  We've been crying almost everyday since we found out.  Not all day, just certain parts of the day.

I've been reading As A Man Thinketh by James Allen again.  Since my bedroom is a hot mess again, looks like my thinking has been stinking.  I'm working on that.

I really don't have much to say right now except GOOD Night and this is a start.

Dr. Mae Jemison

Mae Carol Jemison (born October 17, 1956) is an African American physician and NASA astronaut. She became the first woman of recent African ancestry to travel in space when she went into orbit aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour on September 12, 1992.

Early years
Mae Carol Jemison was born in Decatur, Alabama, the youngest child to Charlie Jemison and Dorothy Green. Her father was a maintenance supervisor for a charity organization, and her mother worked most of her career as an elementary school teacher of English and math at the Beethoven School in Chicago.1 The family moved to Chicago, Illinois, when Jemison was 3, to take advantage of better educational opportunities there. Jemison says that as a young girl growing up in Chicago she always assumed she would get into space. “I thought, by now, we’d be going into space like you were going to work.”[3] She said it was easier to apply to be a shuttle astronaut, “rather than waiting around in a cornfield, waiting for ET to pick me up or something.”[3]

Peace Corps
After completing her medical internship, Jemison joined the staff of the Peace Corps and served as a Peace Corps Medical Officer from 1983 to 1985 responsible for the health of Peace Corps Volunteers serving in Liberia and Sierra Leone.[10] Jemison’s work in the Peace Corps included supervising the pharmacy, laboratory, medical staff as well as providing medical care, writing self-care manuals, and developing and implementing guidelines for health and safety issues. Jemison also worked with the Center for Disease Control (CDC) helping with research for various vaccines.


Jemison is shown aboard Space Shuttle Endeavour during STS-47 preparing to deploy the lower body negative pressure (LBNP) apparatus.[15]

In 1985 Jemison returned to the United States, entered private practice in Los Angeles as a general practitioner with CIGNA Health Plans of California then did engineering courses.[1] After the flight of Sally Ride in 1983, Jemison felt the astronaut program had opened up enough for her to apply.[1] Jemison’s inspiration for joining NASA was African-American actress Nichelle Nichols, who portrayed Lieutenant Uhura on Star Trek.[4] Jemsion was turned down on her first application to NASA, but in 1987 Jemison was accepted on her second application and became one of the fifteen candidates accepted from over 2,000 applicants.[13] “I got a call saying ‘Are you still interested?’ and I said ‘Yeah’,” says Jemison.[16]
Her work with NASA before her shuttle launch included launch support activities at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida and verification of Shuttle computer software in the Shuttle Avionics Integration Laboratory (SAIL).1719 “I did things like help to support the launch of vehicles at Kennedy Space Center,” said Jemison.[16] “I was in the first class of astronauts selected after the Challenger accident back in 1986, ... [I] actually worked the launch of the first flight after the Challenger accident.[16]

Jemison resigned from NASA in March 1993.[10] “I left NASA because I’m very interested in how social sciences interact with technologies,” says Jemison.[22] “People always think of technology as something having silicon in it. But a pencil is technology. Any language is technology. Technology is a tool we use to accomplish a particular task and when one talks about appropriate technology in developing countries, appropriate may mean anything from fire to solar electricity.”[22] Although Jemison’s departure from NASA was amicable, NASA was not thrilled to see her leave.[4] “NASA had spent a lot of money training her; she also filled a niche, obviously, being a woman of color,” says Hiram Hickam, a training manager for NASA’s space station efforts.[4] In an interview with the Des Moines Register on October 16, 2008 Jemison said that she was not driven to be the “first black woman to go into space.” “I wouldn’t have cared less if 2,000 people had gone up before me … I would still have had my hand up, ‘I want to do this.’”[12]

STS-47 Mission Specialist Mae Jemison appears to be clicking her heels in zero gravity in the center aisle of the Spacelab Japan (SLJ) science module aboard the Earth-orbiting Endeavour, Orbiter Vehicle (OV) 105. Making her only flight in space, Jemison was joined by five other NASA astronauts and a Japanese payload specialist for eight days of research in support of the SLJ mission, a joint effort between Japan and United States.[15]
In 1993 Jemison started her own company, the Jemison Group that researches, markets, and develops science and technology for daily life.[10] In 1993, Jemison also appeared on an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation.[23] LeVar Burton found out, from a friend that Jemison was a big Star Trek fan and asked her if she’d be interested in being on the show, and she said, “Yeah!!”[24] The result was an appearance in the episode “Second Chances.”[24] Jemison has the distinction of being the first real astronaut ever to appear on Star Trek.[24]

I Sing The Body Electric by Walt Whitman

I sing the body electric,
The armies of those I love engirth me and I engirth them,
They will not let me off till I go with them, respond to them,
And discorrupt them, and charge them full with the charge of the soul.
Was it doubted that those who corrupt their own bodies conceal themselves?
And if those who defile the living are as bad as they who defile the dead?
And if the body does not do fully as much as the soul?
And if the body were not the soul, what is the soul?
The love of the body of man or woman balks account, the body itself
balks account,
That of the male is perfect, and that of the female is perfect.
The expression of the face balks account,
But the expression of a well-made man appears not only in his face,
It is in his limbs and joints also, it is curiously in the joints of
his hips and wrists,
It is in his walk, the carriage of his neck, the flex of his waist
and knees, dress does not hide him,
The strong sweet quality he has strikes through the cotton and broadcloth,
To see him pass conveys as much as the best poem, perhaps more,
You linger to see his back, and the back of his neck and shoulder-side.
The sprawl and fulness of babes, the bosoms and heads of women, the
folds of their dress, their style as we pass in the street, the
contour of their shape downwards,
The swimmer naked in the swimming-bath, seen as he swims through
the transparent green-shine, or lies with his face up and rolls
silently to and from the heave of the water,
The bending forward and backward of rowers in row-boats, the
horse-man in his saddle,
Girls, mothers, house-keepers, in all their performances,
The group of laborers seated at noon-time with their open
dinner-kettles, and their wives waiting,
The female soothing a child, the farmer’s daughter in the garden or
The young fellow hosing corn, the sleigh-driver driving his six
horses through the crowd,
The wrestle of wrestlers, two apprentice-boys, quite grown, lusty,
good-natured, native-born, out on the vacant lot at sundown after work,
The coats and caps thrown down, the embrace of love and resistance,
The upper-hold and under-hold, the hair rumpled over and blinding the eyes;
The march of firemen in their own costumes, the play of masculine
muscle through clean-setting trowsers and waist-straps,
The slow return from the fire, the pause when the bell strikes
suddenly again, and the listening on the alert,
The natural, perfect, varied attitudes, the bent head, the curv’d
neck and the counting;
Such-like I love—I loosen myself, pass freely, am at the mother’s
breast with the little child,
Swim with the swimmers, wrestle with wrestlers, march in line with
the firemen, and pause, listen, count.
I knew a man, a common farmer, the father of five sons,
And in them the fathers of sons, and in them the fathers of sons.
This man was a wonderful vigor, calmness, beauty of person,
The shape of his head, the pale yellow and white of his hair and
beard, the immeasurable meaning of his black eyes, the richness
and breadth of his manners,
These I used to go and visit him to see, he was wise also,
He was six feet tall, he was over eighty years old, his sons were
massive, clean, bearded, tan-faced, handsome,
They and his daughters loved him, all who saw him loved him,
They did not love him by allowance, they loved him with personal love,
He drank water only, the blood show’d like scarlet through the
clear-brown skin of his face,
He was a frequent gunner and fisher, he sail’d his boat himself, he
had a fine one presented to him by a ship-joiner, he had
fowling-pieces presented to him by men that loved him,
When he went with his five sons and many grand-sons to hunt or fish,
you would pick him out as the most beautiful and vigorous of the gang,
You would wish long and long to be with him, you would wish to sit
by him in the boat that you and he might touch each other.
I have perceiv’d that to be with those I like is enough,
To stop in company with the rest at evening is enough,
To be surrounded by beautiful, curious, breathing, laughing flesh is enough,
To pass among them or touch any one, or rest my arm ever so lightly
round his or her neck for a moment, what is this then?
I do not ask any more delight, I swim in it as in a sea.
There is something in staying close to men and women and looking
on them, and in the contact and odor of them, that pleases the soul well,
All things please the soul, but these please the soul well.
This is the female form,
A divine nimbus exhales from it from head to foot,
It attracts with fierce undeniable attraction,
I am drawn by its breath as if I were no more than a helpless vapor,
all falls aside but myself and it,
Books, art, religion, time, the visible and solid earth, and what
was expected of heaven or fear’d of hell, are now consumed,
Mad filaments, ungovernable shoots play out of it, the response
likewise ungovernable,
Hair, bosom, hips, bend of legs, negligent falling hands all
diffused, mine too diffused,
Ebb stung by the flow and flow stung by the ebb, love-flesh swelling
and deliciously aching,
Limitless limpid jets of love hot and enormous, quivering jelly of
love, white-blow and delirious nice,
Bridegroom night of love working surely and softly into the prostrate dawn,
Undulating into the willing and yielding day,
Lost in the cleave of the clasping and sweet-flesh’d day.
This the nucleus—after the child is born of woman, man is born of woman,
This the bath of birth, this the merge of small and large, and the
outlet again.
Be not ashamed women, your privilege encloses the rest, and is the
exit of the rest,
You are the gates of the body, and you are the gates of the soul.
The female contains all qualities and tempers them,
She is in her place and moves with perfect balance,
She is all things duly veil’d, she is both passive and active,
She is to conceive daughters as well as sons, and sons as well as daughters.
As I see my soul reflected in Nature,
As I see through a mist, One with inexpressible completeness,
sanity, beauty,
See the bent head and arms folded over the breast, the Female I see.
The male is not less the soul nor more, he too is in his place,
He too is all qualities, he is action and power,
The flush of the known universe is in him,
Scorn becomes him well, and appetite and defiance become him well,
The wildest largest passions, bliss that is utmost, sorrow that is
utmost become him well, pride is for him,
The full-spread pride of man is calming and excellent to the soul,
Knowledge becomes him, he likes it always, he brings every thing to
the test of himself,
Whatever the survey, whatever the sea and the sail he strikes
soundings at last only here,
(Where else does he strike soundings except here?)
The man’s body is sacred and the woman’s body is sacred,
No matter who it is, it is sacred—is it the meanest one in the
laborers’ gang?
Is it one of the dull-faced immigrants just landed on the wharf?
Each belongs here or anywhere just as much as the well-off, just as
much as you,
Each has his or her place in the procession.
(All is a procession,
The universe is a procession with measured and perfect motion.)
Do you know so much yourself that you call the meanest ignorant?
Do you suppose you have a right to a good sight, and he or she has
no right to a sight?
Do you think matter has cohered together from its diffuse float, and
the soil is on the surface, and water runs and vegetation sprouts,
For you only, and not for him and her?
A man’s body at auction,
(For before the war I often go to the slave-mart and watch the sale,)
I help the auctioneer, the sloven does not half know his business.
Gentlemen look on this wonder,
Whatever the bids of the bidders they cannot be high enough for it,
For it the globe lay preparing quintillions of years without one
animal or plant,
For it the revolving cycles truly and steadily roll’d.
In this head the all-baffling brain,
In it and below it the makings of heroes.
Examine these limbs, red, black, or white, they are cunning in
tendon and nerve,
They shall be stript that you may see them.
Exquisite senses, life-lit eyes, pluck, volition,
Flakes of breast-muscle, pliant backbone and neck, flesh not flabby,
good-sized arms and legs,
And wonders within there yet.
Within there runs blood,
The same old blood! the same red-running blood!
There swells and jets a heart, there all passions, desires,
reachings, aspirations,
(Do you think they are not there because they are not express’d in
parlors and lecture-rooms?)
This is not only one man, this the father of those who shall be
fathers in their turns,
In him the start of populous states and rich republics,
Of him countless immortal lives with countless embodiments and enjoyments.
How do you know who shall come from the offspring of his offspring
through the centuries?
(Who might you find you have come from yourself, if you could trace
back through the centuries?)
A woman’s body at auction,
She too is not only herself, she is the teeming mother of mothers,
She is the bearer of them that shall grow and be mates to the mothers.
Have you ever loved the body of a woman?
Have you ever loved the body of a man?
Do you not see that these are exactly the same to all in all nations
and times all over the earth?
If any thing is sacred the human body is sacred,
And the glory and sweet of a man is the token of manhood untainted,
And in man or woman a clean, strong, firm-fibred body, is more
beautiful than the most beautiful face.
Have you seen the fool that corrupted his own live body? or the fool
that corrupted her own live body?
For they do not conceal themselves, and cannot conceal themselves.
O my body! I dare not desert the likes of you in other men and
women, nor the likes of the parts of you,
I believe the likes of you are to stand or fall with the likes of
the soul, (and that they are the soul,)
I believe the likes of you shall stand or fall with my poems, and
that they are my poems,
Man’s, woman’s, child, youth’s, wife’s, husband’s, mother’s,
father’s, young man’s, young woman’s poems,
Head, neck, hair, ears, drop and tympan of the ears,
Eyes, eye-fringes, iris of the eye, eyebrows, and the waking or
sleeping of the lids,
Mouth, tongue, lips, teeth, roof of the mouth, jaws, and the jaw-hinges,
Nose, nostrils of the nose, and the partition,
Cheeks, temples, forehead, chin, throat, back of the neck, neck-slue,
Strong shoulders, manly beard, scapula, hind-shoulders, and the
ample side-round of the chest,
Upper-arm, armpit, elbow-socket, lower-arm, arm-sinews, arm-bones,
Wrist and wrist-joints, hand, palm, knuckles, thumb, forefinger,
finger-joints, finger-nails,
Broad breast-front, curling hair of the breast, breast-bone, breast-side,
Ribs, belly, backbone, joints of the backbone,
Hips, hip-sockets, hip-strength, inward and outward round,
man-balls, man-root,
Strong set of thighs, well carrying the trunk above,
Leg-fibres, knee, knee-pan, upper-leg, under-leg,
Ankles, instep, foot-ball, toes, toe-joints, the heel;
All attitudes, all the shapeliness, all the belongings of my or your
body or of any one’s body, male or female,
The lung-sponges, the stomach-sac, the bowels sweet and clean,
The brain in its folds inside the skull-frame,
Sympathies, heart-valves, palate-valves, sexuality, maternity,
Womanhood, and all that is a woman, and the man that comes from woman,
The womb, the teats, nipples, breast-milk, tears, laughter, weeping,
love-looks, love-perturbations and risings,
The voice, articulation, language, whispering, shouting aloud,
Food, drink, pulse, digestion, sweat, sleep, walking, swimming,
Poise on the hips, leaping, reclining, embracing, arm-curving and tightening,
The continual changes of the flex of the mouth, and around the eyes,
The skin, the sunburnt shade, freckles, hair,
The curious sympathy one feels when feeling with the hand the naked
meat of the body,
The circling rivers the breath, and breathing it in and out,
The beauty of the waist, and thence of the hips, and thence downward
toward the knees,
The thin red jellies within you or within me, the bones and the
marrow in the bones,
The exquisite realization of health;
O I say these are not the parts and poems of the body only, but of the soul,
O I say now these are the soul!

How to get paid to blog

"Too much effort to trying to get paid vs. actually blogging."

How I did it: I went to pay per post and "other" sites.  I got a small check eventually.  This section is supposed to be a minimum of 150 characters.  I really don't remember those "other" sites.

It took me 1 year.

It made me heh. unimpressed

Monitoring is Important

I’ve been monitoring at My Fico. My Equifax score went up 21 points. My TransUnion is unchanged. That other agency doesn’t report to consumers anymore. Bummer. I like the Score Watch feature because it shows my progress over any specified time period.

My Fico also gives scenarios on how to improve or hurt your score over a specific time period.

I am going to purchase a new house and car within the next 12-24 months, and I want GREAT rates.

How to learn to flirt

"I don't think I "LEARNED" to flirt. It just comes naturally to me."

How I did it: How did I do it?  Flirting oozes from me.  I am a natural.  Maybe I learned it from both of my parents since BOTH of them are natural flirts.

When flirting, you have to be sincere all the time.  I think the most important part of successful flirting is being yourself.  Don't be afraid to be as expressive as possible.

Lessons & tips:

  • Always smile.

  • Compliment often

  • Be Coy 

  • Know your worth and feel it 

  • Be sincere 

  • Be yourself 

  • Be expressive, but don't over do it. 

Resources: friends and friends of friends

It took me 2 years.

It made me confident
