Good Blog Not Great 8)

           Hello my friends. I hope you are having a truly relaxing weekend.I my friends am at the end of my work week.Today is day six for me and we have spring break here so crazy would be an understatement.I never realized how many people like Margarita's .LOL And do you no how many different Margarita's there are?Oh yeah maybe some of you don't no,I work full time at Buffalo Nickel Bar and Grill,was supposed to be part time till the sales pick up for my hubby(car sales) and my jewelry,but my part time is 5 or 6 days a week.LOL The waitress part is easy for me bar tending has  been a challenge,been doing it a year now and I still learn a new drink everyday.I get to meet some  interesting people also.   I have been working out more, an hour a day at least on my Karate.I have karate camp next month.I pay thirty dollars to get my ass kicked all day, and the night trails till midnight part is scaring the hell out of me.LOL .I can't slack off now if I want to be ready.                                                                                                                                                                     I've recently read that to keep up a great blog you have to post daily. WOW, like I have time for that.LOL  I barely have time for my workouts in between my day job and my night job and my family.I've spent the last couple days thinking about it.Trying to figure out away to work it in to my schedule.I belong to teams and guilds and I haven't been able to dedicate enough time to them.So I sit here thinking what can I do away with.I really like writing and I enjoy sharing but I have to spend more time working out because ,I have to go to camp in three weeks and I realllly don't want to get hurt.I hate pain.8) I already get up early and go to bed late.And as I get up at 5am on a Sunday to write this before I rush off to work I realize It's just not going to work for me.So if it takes posting everyday to have a great blog well I guess mine is just going to be a good blog because at best I can do three posts a week.I am going to try some new things here though.I am working on some new Idea's now.I'm going to share some of those awesome drink recipes and maybe some Texas style recipe's as well.And I have a couple other surprises for you . I hope you come back next week and see what I've done with the place.And soon when the economy picks up and I can work less at my day job then I will post daily and you will recognize my Great blog and hopefully it will be one of your favorites.I hope you are not yawning right now.LOL Have a great restful Sunday and thanks for taking time for me my friends come back soon!

Women Over Fourty 8)

This is what Andy Rooney thinks about women over 40: 60 Minutes Correspondent Andy Rooney (CBS) As I grow in age, I value women over 40 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why: A woman over 40 will never wake you in the middle of the night and ask, 'What are you thinking?' She doesn't care what you think. If a woman over 40 doesn't want to watch the game, she doesn't sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do, and it's usually more interesting. Women over 40 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won't hesitate to shoot you if they think they can get away with it. Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it's like to be unappreciated. Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 40. Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 40 is far sexier than her younger counterpart. Older women are forthright and honest. They'll tell you right off if you are a jerk, if you are acting like one. You don't ever have to wonder where you stand with her. Yes, we praise women over 40 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it's not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed, hot woman over 40, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year old waitress. Ladies, I apologize. For all those men who say, 'Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free? here's an update for you. Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage. Why? Because women realize it's not worth buying an entire pig just to get a little sausage! Andy Rooney is a really smart guy!

My Favorite Words Of Wisdom and Inspiration8)

You must live for another if you wish to live for yourself. ~ Seneca

One day, the father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the express purpose of showing him how poor people live. They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family.

On their return from their trip, the father asked his son, 'How was the trip?'

'It was great, Dad.'

'Did you see how poor people live?' the father asked.

'Oh yeah,' said the son.

'So, tell me, what did you learn from the trip?' asked the father.

The son answered:

'I saw that we have one dog and they had four.
We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden and they have a creek that has no end. We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night. Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon. We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go beyond our sight. We have servants who serve us, but they serve others. We buy our food, but they grow theirs. We have walls around our property to protect us, they have friends to protect them.'

The boy's father was speechless.

Then his son added, 'Thanks Dad for showing me how poor we are.'

Isn't perspective a wonderful thing? Makes you wonder what would happen if we all gave thanks for everything we have, instead of worrying about what we don't have.

Appreciate every single thing you have, especially your friends!

Pass this on to friends and acquaintances and help them refresh their perspective and appreciation.

'Life is too short and friends are too few.'

I love this!

I love this!
What make's you smile?

Smile it makes you look younger ! ;)
