    Allow me a moment to vent.  I am SO freaking tired!  I have been some kind of sick since July.  It started with eczema in my, ahem, we're all friends here, right?... in my girly parts.  Then I started lactating and I'm not even preggo.  Now that the eczema is almost gone I have something new to deal with.  A headache that is now 10 days old which is most likely due to my newly diagnosed high blood pressure.  I found out I had high BP on Saturday when I had a nosebleed that accompanied the neverending headache.  The doc's office sent me to the ER. The high blood pressure that is still high and the meds I'm on is not controlling it.  So, today, I go for a brain MRI, this is from my endocrinologist who is trying to figure out why my non-pregnant self is lactating.  And then I go back to my primary doctor to figure out new dosage to regulate my blood pressure.  I'm tired, physically, mentally, emotionally...  I just want to sleep and wake up my old normal self.   I think the old has something to do with it... I'm turning 34 on Saturday... does all this come with that?  LOL.  

    OK, vent over.

    Wanted: Compassion - If found, please post in comment section below

    People really amaze me. This is not a Whitney rant but it was brought on by the events of tthis week. Living in Jersey, close to where her home is, a lot of the people I've encountered in the last couple of days have strong opinions about her and the memorial service. Some not so good. Take for instance the woman I encountered last night. She was telling me that she did not want to pick up the phone calls from her boss because she knew they were going to ask her to work during Whitney's memorial service and she didn't want to (she said she works in law enforcement). Her actual words were "Don't nobody care about no crackhead Whitney!" I was baffled and not because I think sooo highly of the singer. I was baffled because at the end of the day, she was someone's daughter, someone's mother, an aunt, a friend... she was someone's someone.

    No matter what you think of a person, whether they are dead or alive, they are someone's someone. Compassion, it's lacking. I'm not a perfect person but I try to live my life treating other's with mercy and grace because I don't know what you might be going through. My smile or "Hello" may be the only one you get today. Far too often people post typography of niceties but don't make the effort to live it. What's the point? ::shrugs::

    Compassion, mercy, and grace - it's a good thing.

Currently, he is a student of Kendo/Kumdo and will be testing for his black belt this spring. In addition to all that insanity, he runs, does yoga, and does whatever he can to stay fit, strong, and healthy for his brood. Haha. He recently signed up for the Spartan race and has taken up screaming, "This is Spartaaaaaa!" randomly throughout the day. LOL.

    Here is a video of Jada Williams reading her essay: Jada Connects Frederick Douglass Narrative to Todays Education System

    Reshared text:
    "A grand price was paid in order for us to be where we are today; but in my mind we should be a lot further, so again I encourage the white teachers to instruct and I encourage my people to not just be a student, but become a learner." These are the words of Jada Williams.

    Here is a child who tried to bridge a divide, to challenge her teachers to keep on teaching and her peers to not just be students but to be learners. What did she get in return? Retaliation from her teachers and from the school administrators. It takes a lot of courage for students (children, really) to tell the truth and for the situation to be handled the way that it was is unconscionable. Their actions or lack of proper action illustrates her point exactly.

    I will be calling their Board of Ed and the City of Rochester, NY to voice my distaste.

    Don't have a Christmas tree or decorations this year.  Left ours at the last apartment... not intentionally.   When we went to get our final haul (not much stuff) we found that the locks were changed... dunno whether it was the landlord or the bank who changed the locks.   Landlord went into foreclosure... apparently he'd been pocketing our rent money for over a year.   Anyhow, mini me and I made use of all the construction paper, glitter, etc... we have laying around.

    Moonbows

    So apparently moonbows are a real thing, you'd think they belong in the same category as leprechauns and pots of gold, but no - a few days a year the moon is aligned just right so that it hits the water vapors of the Yosemite water falls at such an angle that you get full moon powered rainbows, ie, moonbows!

    So this weekend was that special time that all the conditions were just perfect, the moon was a super moon this cycle, it was a full moon and it was just in the right place - well almost perfect because there also wasn't so much wind so the water vapor didn't travel as much as it needed to to create a luscious moonbow for us, and by 9pm only a tiny corner of a moonbow could be seen.

    So I waited it out in the cold night, and what do you know, by 10.30ish the wind had picked up just enough to give us a somewhat impressive showing of the moonbows.

    So ladies and gentleman may I present: A Moonbow In Yosemite

    "We saw the boys with the saggy baggies hanging out, and we decided how would they like it if their grandmothers had their underwear hanging out?"

    These sassy Grandmas are tired of seeing men's behinds because of their pants hanging so low and they're not taking it anymore. So they're giving it right back with the ThongPends available in Tiger print too. :)

    Alcatraz: Paxton Petty I finally caught last week's episode in full and I have to agree with most that it's the best episode so far. It's the first time that I felt connected to Madsen and Hauser. Seeing Hauser's vulnerability when he was on the bomb and also his obvious affection for Sengupta made him feel a little more "real". And Madsen, I think she's finally growing on me. I did feel bad for her when her friend Tanner got blown up by the bomb.

    Alas, it's now time for #BeingHuman. I'll catch +Alcatraz on dvr after the show. :)

    I've been MIA from G+ for a while. Life just gets in the way of my free time. Life being, you know, husband, kids, work, and lately, my Kindle. Thought I'd stop in to say, "Hey!" I'm sure I've missed some interesting, funny, and informative posts. I'll be stopping by your pages soon! :)

    Two things I wanted to share from my day today:

    First, I had a prospective applicant come to my store today asking me, "Are yous hiring?" I wanted to reply, "Yes, we's hiring." (drenched in sarcasm of course) but I didn't. I simply directed her where she can go to pick up and application. Really though? Yous? On the street, I'll let you slide. Applying for a job, no.

    Secondly, this evening I decided to cook some dumplings (pre-made, frozen, bought at the Asian store) for dinner. I cooked it like I usually do - boil, pan fry. Well, come to find out these are boil-only dumplings. So for dinner we had bottom-less dumplings. The bottoms were stuck on the pan. o_O At least they were tasty.

    Have a good night all! :))

    Cross Colours

    Remember those? The super colorful urban clothing line from the 90s. I haven't worn colored jeans since I was a freshman in high school. My favorite pair was orange and I stuck bandaids on them (because I thought I was part of the group TLC). LoL. Fast forward all these years and I'm back to colored jeans. I don't really do self-pics but I figured, what the heck, who knows when I'll be in red jeans again.

    Red jeans. Coz I'm cool like dat. ;)

    Health alert: Arsenic in organic baby formula. Yikes.

    The first thing I thought of when I saw this photo was +Chrysta Rae - I'm not a photographer so I don't contribute to her scavenger hunts but I enjoy the end results of her hardwork and the contributions of the Google+ community of photographers (You're all brilliant, the whole lot of you!). I digress. Anywho, I saw a lot of posts about #ChrystaRaeDay and rice cakes, hence the Chrysta Rae association

    Then of course, I panicked. I thought, "What the??" Is there really anything safe to eat anymore. Honestly, there are so many health alerts that come up with processed and unprocessed foods that it makes you wonder. I choose organic gluten free products for my little guy because he has a lot of food allergies, including wheat. It's incredibly disturbing to read news like this. What's even more disturbing is how did this even get on the shelves? Especially in baby formula.

    RESHARE:
    Thanks +Andy Stuart, for reminding us to take care of our oceans and the wonderful photos.

    Reshared text:
    Our Seas
    As photographers we love shooting at the coast, the public love the images and the sea produces £millions for the economy. Having said that you would think, even for purely economic reasons, that we would try to keep our seas in pristine condition.

    Approximately 71% of the planet's surface (~3.6×108 km2) is covered by saline water. Because it is the principal component of Earth's hydrosphere, the world ocean is integral to all known life, forms part of the carbon cycle, and influences climate and weather patterns. The total volume is approximately 1.3 billion cubic kilometres (310 million cu mi) with an average depth of 3,790 metres (12,430 ft). It is the habitat of 230,000 species known to science, however much of the ocean's depths remain unexplored and it is estimated that over 2 million marine species may exist.
    Yet we still abuse the Oceans with chemicals, particles, industrial, agricultural and residential waste, noise, or the spread of invasive organisms. Most sources of marine pollution are land based. Many potentially toxic chemicals adhere to tiny particles which are then taken up by plankton and benthos animals, most of which are either deposit or filter feeders. In this way, the toxins are concentrated upward within ocean food chains. Many particles combine chemically in a manner highly depletive of oxygen, causing estuaries to become anoxic.
    Whaling is the hunting of free roaming whales. It has become a high-profile issue in marine conservation activism as it has led to the endangerment of 5 out of the 13 kinds of whales. The International Whaling Commission (IWC) had instituted a whaling moratorium in order to give whales time to recover. According to environmental groups, however, blue whales have not recovered. Other whale populations have been drastically depleted.
    The IWC does not include three countries who ignore the moratorium and continue their whaling practices: Japan, Iceland and Norway. 20 years after the moratorium, the whale is again at risk of further endangerment. Unlike whales, small cetaceans (e.g., dolphins, pilot whales, belugas, and orcas) do not have an international body like the International Whaling Commission to regulate the killing. There are simply no regulations or the regulations are ignored.
    90% of the world's large shark populations already wiped out, sharks are being depleted faster than they can reproduce. This threatens the stability of marine ecosystems around the world. Sharks are vitally important apex predators. They have shaped marine life in the oceans for over 400 million years and are essential to the health of the planet, and ultimately to the survival of mankind.
    Canada's commercial seal "hunt" is the largest mass slaughter of marine mammals in the world. This year, Canada will allow 270,000 harp seals to be killed.
    Canada's 2006 quota for killing seals: 325,000 for the regular commercial "hunt" and an additional 10,000 harp seal allowance for new aboriginal initiatives, personal use, and Arctic hunts. As usual, the commercial quota was exceeded, resulting in over 330,000 seals being killed.
    The bluefin tuna (Thunnus thynnus) is the fastest fish in the sea, one of the largest fish in the ocean, and a marvel of creation – unique in that is a warm-blooded animal. Bluefin tuna (BFT) are one of the top predators of the seas – they eat just about anything and travel great distances, swimming up to 55 miles per hour, to find their prey. Unfortunately, it is the favoured fish of sushi restaurants worldwide, especially in Japan, and that is the reason that this magnificent creature is now on the fast track to biological extinction.
    One fish sold for US$173,000 recently. With that kind of financial incentive, it is impossible to expect common sense to reign. Governments have proven to be incapable of putting a stop to this carnage due to the deep pockets of the fishing industry, and corruption is rampant. Stocks of bluefin tuna have fallen by at least 85% since the industrial fishing era began. Bluefin quotas are set at a ludicrously high 13,500 tons by the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT), but realistically over 60,000 tons are killed every year. The scientific community believes bluefin tuna is at a high risk of fisheries and stock collapse in the Mediterranean Sea in less than 5 years. The quota is too high and it is not enforced.
    These are just some examples of abuse of the Oceans around the world. Even the waters shown in the images are not without major problems as this clipping from the Guardian newspaper from May 2010 highlights.

    The crash has been huge for some species. From 1889 to 2007, the LPUP declined 500 times for halibut, more than 100 times for haddock, and more than 20 times for plaice, wolffish, hake and ling.
    Cod had declined by 87%, the study, published by the online science journal Nature Communications, found.
    The figures indicated fish stocks were in decline well before the amount of fish being caught went "catastrophically downhill" in the 1960s, the study's authors said.
    They called for much stronger reform of the EU common fisheries policy to allow for recovery of fisheries in the seas around the British Isles.
    The study's lead author, Ruth Thurstan, of the University of York's environment department, said: "Fishermen have to work 17 times harder than 100 years ago to get the equivalent catch.
    "And this is despite more powerful boats, more durable and wider nets, freezing facilities – technology that is far more sophisticated than in the last century.
    "Now UK fishing trawlers are bringing in about 150,000 tonnes a year, compared to double that 100 years ago.
    "The availability of certain bottom-living fish, like halibut, turbot, haddock and plaice, has also dropped by 94%. This is not a direct measure of fish stocks, but based on catch numbers ... it does give a strong indication of the state fish stocks are in."
    Simon Brockington, the head of conservation at the MCS and the co-author of the study, said: "Over a century of intensive trawl fishing has severely depleted UK seas of bottom-living fish like halibut, turbot, haddock and plaice.
    "It is vital that governments recognise the changes that have taken place. The reform of the common fisheries policy gives an opportunity to set stock protection and recovery targets that are reflective of the historical productivity of the sea."

    Scotland's seas and coasts are home to an amazing range of marine species and habitats, from the sheltered sea lochs to the open waters, from seagrass beds to rocky reefs and underwater seamounts. Not only do such diverse habitats support thriving populations of sea mammals like otters, dolphins, whales and seals, but they are also home to vast numbers of seabirds, fish and other spectacular marine wildlife like seahorses, sponges and deepwater corals. The marine environment also supports numerous human activities including fisheries, tourism and will be a key area for the development of important marine renewable infrastructures.

    Despite the importance of the marine environment, we are failing to manage it sustainably. This is why WWF Scotland is working to move management towards sustainability in line with international commitments to ensure the long term health of Scotland's marine species and habitats.

    We must start to take more care of our oceans and the habitats beneath the waves, before it's too late for them to recover.
