Good thoughts for writers from Elizabeth Gilbert.-Bill M
I have meet many people that could talk a good talk, but when push came to shove they were nowhere to be seen. Don’t tell people show people. We hear words all day that are forgotten in minutes. When we see action we may remember it for a long time.
Here’s a good thought about clearing your clutter and sharing it with someone else to help make their day. – Bill M
I am so looking forward to a break this holiday season. Not just because of the free time to relax, or spend with family, or all the yummy food, but also the time I have to PURGE! Just thinking about it makes me feel lighter. Oh and not to worry, the kind of purge I am talking about is not in any way related to the movies. No crimes will be committed. You have my word.
This “purge” has to do with “stuff.” I have simply, too much of it. And whenever I think I don’t have enough, my mess of a room reminds me that I do indeed.
I doubt I am alone in this. I think we all have fallen victim to the excitement of new stuff. I mean if you can enter the wonderful world we call Target and leave empty-handed, I applaud you. It is not…

Happy Friday! How’s everyone doing today? Hopefully, everyone’s doing well.
Yesterday was a blast. I went shopping with my sister and cousins. It was basically a girl’s night out because it was only us girls. Since a lot of black Friday deals started on Thursday, we were able to buy a lot of things. This year we decided to go to the mall and we found lots of awesome deals there. My favorite store would have to be Macys because they had boots on sale. These boots are normally $30 and over but for black Friday they were only $19.99. I also found rings that were $35 for $14. Around 4am we gave up because everyone was tired and went home. I normally don’t shop on black Fridays since all the stores are crowded but this year I decided to try something new and it was actually fun.
Here are some more fun facts that I found. Enjoy.
- Square watermelons were invested by the Japanese. They grew them in glass boxes. I wonder if they sell them in California. I would love to buy one.
- A blue whale has the longest tongue of any living mammal. It weighs around 3 tons and is as long as an elephant.
- The word listen contains that same letters as the word silent. The irony. When you tell someone to listen you expect them to be silent.
Anyways, that’s all from me today. Also, I’m not sure if these facts are completely true so please do not quote me on any of it. For anyone who’s curious as to where I found these facts, I found them on this website (http://www.sotruefacts.com/). Check out the site for more interesting facts. I hope everyone has an awesome weekend.
I love Hemingway. He was an artist all the way down to his soul and he understood people and the world much differently than the average mind. He knew that the most beautiful people were the ones who had endured pain and suffered from their own emotions. So often we are told to keep how we feel to ourselves, no one wants to be the crazy girl, but Hemingway had it right: your virtues will make you vulnerable and you will often be wounded.

As the world waits for the Grand Jury decision in the Michael Brown case in Ferguson, MO. We must all become furious and demand justice and change, not just the African-American race but all of us, when/while our children are being murdered. This is not OK!!
Now here is incentive for anyone who’s been refraining from starting their own do-it-yourself project. The “fruit” is worth the labor.-Bill M
