It’s your choice and your life So Live well


Some people can bring out the demons within us all.
Some people know the right buttons to push to get us upset.
Some people are never happy and want everyone else miserable with them.

Some demons we carry within can be expelled and or transformed.
Some demons we carry within are reflections of our life.
Some demons we carry within are not of our own making.

Some thoughts we think can change our lives.
Some thoughts we think can destroy us from within
Some thoughts we think can become reality while others will remain fantasy.

Some People bring out the best within us all.
Some People Know how to make your Day.
Some people are always full of hope and joy and spread it freely.

Some paths can lead us to hell
Some paths can go in Circles
Some paths can lead us to Heaven

We can choose which people we associate with.
We can challenge the demons within and win.
We can choose the thoughts we think.
We do choose the path we follow.

So which ones will you choose?
It’s your choice and your life So Live well

 

May God Bless you all…

The Evolution of a Journey Through Life


  I stand alone, Facing the morning and traveling into the night.
Others may walk beside me but to them i am but a piece of the scenery.
We all stand alone in the light of the day and through the darkness of the night.
Even in a crowded street we are alone in our journey through life.

  Once and a while we may stop and be one with the rest of the travelers.
Sharing thoughts and ideas with each other until we go back out on our journey.
Each persons journey through life is his or her own to take.
Each choice and decision is their own to make

  Sometimes you may be fortunate and have a companion who travels a similar path.
Those of us who are lucky enough to have such a blessing should enjoy it while it lasts.
Because eventually their path will fork off and we will be once again alone on our Journey.
Embrace the love you are given and return the love to all that you are fortunate to travel with.

Though I travel alone, I travel with all of creation towards the light that awaits us all.
The illusion of being alone fades to show me that we all travel through life together.
We all travel towards the light blinded by the darkness behind us and the loneliness is but our
desire to be one with all creation.

A Great Spyware Program – Spybot S&D


I’ve been using this program for years and i believe its on of the best ones out there. So go give it a try…..

 

A little about Spybot S&D

Spybot – Search & Destroy detects and removes spyware, a relatively new kind of threat not yet covered by common anti-virus applications. Spyware silently tracks your surfing behavior to create a marketing profile for you that is transmitted without your knowledge to the compilers and sold to advertising companies. If you see new toolbars in your Internet Explorer that you haven’t intentionally installed, if your browser crashes inexplicably, or if your home page has been "hijacked" (or changed without your knowledge), your computer is most probably infected with spyware. Even if you don’t see the symptoms, your computer may be infected, because more and more spyware is emerging. Spybot-S&D is free, so there’s no harm giving it a try to see if something has invaded your computer.

Tweeknow Power pack 2009


I downloaded and tried a freeware program the other day called tweeknow Power pack 2009. Packed full of utilities such as Registry cleaner , Registry defragmenter, track cleaner and more. Considering that most registry cleaners / defragmenters are around 29 us dollars or more to purchase this in itself makes this utility suite a great download. It also contains tweaks for windows xp, vista and windows 7. So far all the tweaks seem to be safe and hasn’t caused any problems on my system which is running Windows 7 64 bit.

So if your looking for a free Tweak,Registry and disk utility this would be one I would suggest you try.

you can get it from http://www.tweeknow.com

Trash and Debris

I was walking back from the local gas station the other day here in south eastern Kentucky and noticed all along the roadside trash and debris. So much trash and debris that it was sliding down into one of our smaller local rivers. I never thought i would see such a thing in a mountain town, our roadsides have became so full of trash and debris it looked more like some of the large cities i have lived in.

Such a shame to watch such beautiful land and resources get polluted and destroyed before my eyes. Between the trash and the coal mine pollution around this area the wildlife and local population will be effected in a negative way. Everyone is responsible for the pollution and we all should take pride in our beautiful country we live in. Hopefully one day we will realize what is at stake and clean up the pollution so future generations can continue to enjoy what Kentucky and the rest of the U.S. take for granted.

The News Media, Politicians and More

Seems to me now days the news media is more about shaping the political views of its watchers than about bringing facts and information to the viewers. One News network transmits mainly Obama pro ideals as another may transmit anti Obama views. But all of them are guilty of playing news that boosts ratings. Okay I understand that ratings are important to any network being cable news or local television but somewhere down the line Integrity has been lost in the news media or at least to the most part.

Now don’t get me wrong there are still a few people in the news media dedicated to bringing us the facts and the truth in the news they report. Politicians are exactly what they always have been and very few of them are completely honest with the people they represent. They are human so they will lie, cheat and whatever else they deem necessary to get what they want and sometimes what their constituents need. Even though our government system is flawed and those in power usually become corrupt there is still hope. I am one to believe that there is still some good people in power just not enough to get the job done far as making America the shining star she used to be.

The U.S. used to be a leader in technology, industry and innovation. Now we are leaders in consumption and contentment. We used to export far more than import and now we export a very small percentage of our goods and import most of what the consumers buy. We spend more than we earn and we earn less than what is necessary to survive. The Minimum wage is not enough to even be able to afford decent housing and food, leaving us in the hole financially before we even look for health insurance and other necessities of life. And if you work part time you earn too much for any aid such as food stamps, housing or welfare. So if you try to do the right thing and work you are on your own unless you cheat the system like some people do.

Our country need Healthcare Reform for sure but there are allot of issues that need to be address also.

One is the inequality of pay amongst all Americans, there are some who make billions as others scrape to get by. Not saying that CEOs or business owners shouldn’t profit from their companies but why must they make more in one year than any of their workers can in a lifetime. They always layoff workers to cut costs and move the jobs overseas to continue making profits when if they took a meager pay cut themselves they could achieve about the same thing.

And just personal observation, i can not see how a emergency room doctor is worth 800 dollars for 10 minutes of his time that is just ridiculous. i understand paying for the convenience of emergency care
but no man is worth that much per minute. And the reason i am for healthcare reform including a possible public option on insurance is all my insurance would pay for my 2000 dollar visit to the emergency room was 250 dollars of the blood work and that was my yearly limit. So i am actually loosing money paying for my insurance since what they paid out is not much more than the monthly charge I pay for their services.

I know this is not a perfect world and that it will never be a perfect world. The wealthy will always be wealthy and the poor mostly will get the pointed end of the stick. I guess you cant blame a guy for dreaming can you?
