Happy Birthday To Me

Wow! A whole year just went by since my last birthday and I have a lot to thank God for .I don't even know where to start, cos God has been really good.

I thank God for his divine favor,grace,mercies,wisdom and understanding and on top of that I thank God for allowing me to see another birthday in good health.I also thank God for my family and all my friends(blogsville family included).

I started receiving calls from people just before 12midnight,even one of my sisters called me from Nigeria 12midnight on the dot.

Well I don't really have anything planned specially for today,but I might hang out with a couple of friends later today for drinks and we will take it from there.I have been getting my beauty sleep since Tuesday,cos my last day at my job down here was on Monday and I will be starting the Tampa job on Monday,so Tampa here I come this weekend.

Anyway lemme leave you with this joke before going to get some sleep.

One day, a rather inebriated ice fisherman drilled a hole in the ice and peered deeply into the hole examining it for fish. Suddenly, a loud voice boomed, "There are no fish down there."

Surprised, but not discouraged, the fisherman continued on. He walked several yards away, drilled another hole and peered deeply into it. Again, out of nowhere, a voice suddenly boomed, "There's no fish down there."

A bit nervous now, the fisherman managed to continue. He walked about 50 yards away and drilled yet another hole, peered long and deep into the hole, hoping for some fish. Suddenly, the voice boomed again, this time louder than ever, "There's no fish down there!!!"

The fisherman, quite frightened at this point, looked up into the sky and asked, "God!? Is that you?"

"No, you idiot," the voice said. "It's the rink manager."

Will be back to give you details if anything exciting happens.

Why can't They Just Get Along

Howdy folks, just had to throw that in cos am from H-town, Texas babayyyyyy and just came back from Nashville, TN which is the home of cowboys and country music.

Anyway hope I won't be crucified with my tantrums today 'cos it has to do with why women just can’t get along and even live together. Studies have pretty much concluded that women always have problems with each other cos women are very much competitive amongst each other and cos of raging hormones as well.(God help you to cross a woman been hormonally disarranged by menstrual cramps)

I have twin sisters and I always notice the competition amongst them while growing up, although the Kehinde is more competitive though and the Taiwo is laid back and does not like wahala.

Coming back to what prompted this chit chat, I was a little late for my flight down here on Thursday and could not check my bag in, so I had to carry it on with my laptop bag which actually was a pain, but thank God I only have a travel pack lotion, deodorant spray and a small Eau de toilette in the bag. So I had to run with both bags to the terminal and made it into the plane. I got to my seat and the lady thatz suppose to be seating beside was having a throw down with the lady seating right behind me, cos the lady behind me was trying to tell her to put her laptop bag under the seat in front of her so that she can have enough space to put her carry on bag. The lady seating beside me was not giddy with that idea and thatz where the wahala started o. I tried talking to both of them but I finally rest my case cos they indirectly told me to shut my trap, cos they got this. Anyway I finally agree to let the woman beside me put her laptop bag under the seat in front of me and I just thank God that I found a spot to put my bag upfront before I got to the seat, cos am sure both of them would have turn on me if I as much talk about putting my bag up there. Well they kept referring to each other all through the flight o.

Make sure you watch the video O!!!

So folks what is your own view about why women can’t as much has get along?

Cancer News From Johns Hopkins

This is News update from John Hopkins Hospital. It is a good


Cancer update -- Johns Hopkins -- Cancer News from Johns Hopkins:

1. No plastic containers in micro.

2. No water bottles in freezer.

3. No plastic wrap in microwave.

Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its newsletters. This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well.

Dioxin chemicals causes cancer, especially breast cancer.

Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies. Don't freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic.

Recently, Dr. Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital , was on a TV program to explain this health hazard. He talked about dioxins a nd how bad they are for us.

He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave

using plastic containers. This especially applies to foods that contain fat. He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics

releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body.

Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex

or ceramic containers for heating food. You get the same results, only

without the dioxin.

So such things as frozen dinners, instant ramen noodles and soups,

etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something else. Paper isn't bad but you don't know what is in the paper. It's just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc.

He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.

Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over! foods to be cooked in the microwave.

As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food.

Cover food with a paper towel instead.

So folks am wishing you a lovely week ‘cos as of right now we are having an ice sleet or ice storm down here o.

To send or not To send

I was talking to one of my friend on Sunday and and she was talking about sending her twin sons to Nigeria next year to start high school cos she does not really trust them attending high school in the US.I went ahead to ask her which school she will be sending them to and she doesn't even know which school yet.

I started thinking if it was a good idea to actually send the kids back to Nigeria to attend high school with all the reports I keep hearing about how people in Nigeria are sending their kids to school in Ghana,South Africa and other African countries.I have a couple of my cousins in schools in Ghana and one even in South Africa.

There was a post on somebody's blog sometime ago about a private school on the Island where they actually put kids in classes according to how rich and influential their parents are.I wonder what the school system in Nigeria has turned into now,cos I remembered when I was in high school back home,education was a priority.The last time I went to my high school in Nigeria was when I went to collect my SSCE certificate and I actually cried for the students.The school was not anywhere near how it was when I was there.The environment did not even look like a learning environment.It actually looked like a Juvenile camp for boys and all the buildings were almost collapsing from lack of maintenance.All the students were walking or playing around like there was nothing to do.I could still remember how dead you are if you are caught walking around during school time back then.

I still believe that a country is not a country as long as the Government of the country is not providing basic amenities that is needed for it's citizens like good schools,good roads,power and for an average working citizen of the said country to wake up in the morning and don't have an inkling on how he is going to get one meal for that day.

I think it's only God that can give us the revolution we need to turn Nigeria around back to what it use to be.

Lemme leave you with a couple of video clips
