Apologies


Your VBA Administrator – that’s me – has been absent for a long while. Essentially, I’ve been writing novels and not paying much attention to WordPress as a result. Also, the editing face of WordPress has changed and I am still making my way around. Figuring out how to find and approve comments took about six minutes!

So, I apologize.

I will try to do better.

Thanks for visiting.

Also, I want to apologize to those who have received “poor” star ratings on your wonderful blog posts — I have a “troll” who has followed you here from another of my blogs. Don’t let it bother you too much — he/she has a heart of stone.

Ask Gene Hackman

I made this comic for a very nice person, Joe Wilson who creates great short films. Joe is creative and supports me and gives me advice. You should do the same for him, especially the advice part, he wears black socks with sandals. FT 😛 Here is his link:

A Tornado? Here?


Tornado in November?

Which Way Now 101

“ . . . high winds . . . 12:00 . . . headed this way . . . possible tornado . . . till 3:00 . . . some heavy rain . . .”

I stared wide eyed at the park ranger on the beach talking to our neighbor. “Did you get all that?” he asked when he turned my way.

A tornado watch! We were aware that the hurricane season is over at the end of November, but a tornado season? Checking a Florida disaster website, I discovered that there are two tornado seasons in Florida. The summer season ends in September and the Deadly Spring Season (yes, folks, that’s what it’s called) starts in February. Where does that leave us in December?

It leaves us on a tiny scrap of land called Long Key, where one could sprint – if one was capable of sprinting, and there…

Advice From A Mountain


Advice from a mountain? Yes, and pretty good advice, too.

300 Word Limit

IMG_2454Reach new heights

Savor life’s peak experiences

There is beauty as far as the eye can see

Stand in the strength of Your True Nature

Be uplifting

Follow the trails of the Wise Ones

Protect and preserve timeless beauty,

silence, solitude, serenity,

flowing rivers,

ancient trees.

Rise above it all

Make solid decisions

Climb beyond your limitations

Leave no stone unturned

Never take life for granite

Get to the point

Patience, patience, patience

Life has its ups and downs

Let your troubles vanish into thin air

To summit all up

It’s the journey step by step

Rock on!

–Ilan Shamir

Kerala, India: The Land of Spices


Travel plans shaky? Take a look at Kerala, India on iBellHop.

International Bellhop Travel Magazine

Kerala India Travel Photo Gallery

Kerala, India is a magical place that has been bringing flavor and color to the rest of the world for centuries. A state of the country of India since 1956, Kerala sits on the Western Coastline of India, near the tip of the Indian Peninsula, and facing the Arabian Sea. Often called the “Land of Spices,” Kerala was one of the major spice shipping hubs for the globe as early as 3000 B.C. and is still a major grower and exporter of spices and foods to this day. In addition to the flavorful and exotic spices that flow from Kerala, tea-growing is also a major industry, with some of the most unique tea flavors in the world being grown on the inland steppes. Though the agricultural tourism is a major draw, the majority of visitors are more-enthralled with the backwaters, Beaches, and stunningly-green tropical forests.

While there are vast expanses…

Fresh Air Kids


“our children are the first in history to have a lower life expectancy than their parents.”

 Finally, I went to watch the documentary ‘Project Wild Thing’. Since I saw the trailer, I knew that I wanted, (and needed), to see this film. I wasn’t disappointed.

projectwildthing

This documentary is the positive promotion of children being in the outdoors. But it isn’t done in an ‘in your face’ kind of way. The information is very balanced, and the first part of the film is David Bond observing how even his own children choose TV and computers rather than the outdoors.

However, as much as this film gives us some contradictory, light-hearted moments that you would expect when children are in a film, it does illustrate some hard and quite scary facts. Our children are the first in history to have a lower life expectancy than their parents…… how incredibly sad is that??? This statement made me sigh with sadness and despair.

Within my job, I get to see…

Do you like the flick of my hand?


Dating and personal quirks! EEK!

BROOKEandMCKENZIE

http://weheartit.com/entry/28642432/via/AnnaTxx

 

I’m sure you’re aware that every man, guy or boy has unique quirks that make him who he is. I’m also sure you’re aware that some of these traits are the reasons for nicknames, stories, and inevitably how you describe your ex when the relationship has ended. Well, I’m here to tell you that this is not only one of the most common things to discuss with your girlfriends; it’s clearly one of the most fun things.

I’m here to tell you how a flick of the wrist lasted as one ex’s identifier for years after we had broken up. While he and I would eat dinner, he would open his palm, spread his fingers and flick across his body quickly to form his hand into a point. He would do this to ask me to pass the salt, point directions to anyone if they asked, and always… always…
