Thank You, Senator Kennedy

He push for equality and civil rights; equal pay for equal work for

women; equal access to quality affordable health care; Senator Kennedy co-sponsored legislation to provide benefits to domestic partners of Federal employees, was a staunch supporter of affirmative action policies and programs, and sponsored re-introducing the Equal Rights Amendment. But if the measure of a man's worth comes from helping those most in need, fighting when most have resigned defeat, and reaching out when others pull back, then Senator Kennedy most certainly earned the moniker "the lion." He was a king among kings.

Its not politics, Its Humanity

People in the poorest parts of our world struggle daily against hunger and poverty, but much of this is preventable. The trick is that we cannot depend on one solution.
Here are the four key areas that need to be addressed in developing countries:
1. Malaria: Women need to learn how to protect themselves and their families from this disease that kills more than 1 million people each year.
2. Health Protection: Low-cost health products, micro-insurance and health savings plans can help prevent families from being destroyed by minor illnesses.
3. Micro-finance: With small loans, women can raise animals and plant gardens, creating sustainable businesses.
4. Education: Learning about family planning, health and business empowers women to secure their futures.

It seen that much of what i said it sound like politics
many has criticize me by saying I speak left wind crap. I am not a political person but a humanitarian
since when to care for the well being of other is politics? and isn't that the concern of every citizen?

Today I will be raising money for United for diversity on the parking lot of a local supermarket
United for diversity

In this world of duality, we all feel different from one another.
We meet thousands of people,
from many races,
with varying physical conditions,
of different ages,
contrasting religions,
and opposing political beliefs,
and ideals.
We perceive separation and injustice everywhere, in a world of extreme contrast and variance, a world of untold possibilities.
we search endlessly for union. We strive to heal the planet, we create programs for conflict resolution, we march for peace, trying desperately to get humanity to see beyond its differences and live in harmony.

The only way to experience world peace is to elevate love-consciousness: the underlying union that sustains everything. Until we realize that we are all one, we will continue to witness destruction and conflict, in a society based in fear.
Adapted from: Why Walk When You Can Fly


It occur to me about this Quote
"Do not do to others what you would not want done to you".
But When you are One with nature, one with the universe, one with all that surrounded us. You'll realize the idea that there is no "other." only ONE
You're not a planet by yourself or you own universal for that matter
you are part of it, "WE ARE ALL ONE"

Enlargement adds

Have you seen those enlargement adds?
well I get then all the time. I really don't know who to reply to to let then know that the rubber duckies,under at the bed side table can't grow any more.
( ....just joking)
Well the point is that some are real funny
here are some:
  • Every woman would like to clone that beast inside your pants. (hehehehehe) really!!!!!!
  • Make your zipper knight the best in the whole town.
  • Your bulge will be so noticeable you will have to wear a kilt. who write this stuff?
  • Grow the largest pecker in the world. wow, no kidding!
  • Megawatt in your manhood. this are only a few but there are more
I bet a man write this stuff . hehehehehe still laughing.


"To make the world a better place in every way we can."

  • LIVE LIFE TO IT'S FULLEST! {Be all that you can be}

Change doesn't start on the surface. It's generated from consciousness.
  • TAKE AWAY ALL NEGATIVITY {from your life and others}

We aren't here to make the world evolve. We are here to evolve as individuals and then to spread that influence.

In reality we are all in the same boat of human conflict and confusion.

Our joyous moments will come from riding the wave, not asking to get off at the next station.
  • HELP THE ENVIRONMENT: In any way way you can

We can persuade a lion to be a vegetarian. All we can realistically do is seek openings for higher awareness.
  • HELP HEAL OUR PLANET: :it is our planet}

Let's create an atmosphere of peace around ourselves.
  • CHANGE THE WORLD: {start with ourselves}

"We aren't here to be as good as possible. We are here to be as real as possible."
  • BE HEALTHIER: {if you don't love yourself how can you love others}

Simplistic as it may sound, the male principle of aggression can only be healed by the feminine principle of nurturing and love.

some one send me this

Whatever you give a woman,
she will
make greater.
If you give her sperm, she'll give you a baby.

If you give her a house, she'll give you a home.
If you give her groceries, she'll give you a meal

If you give her a smile, she'll give
you her heart. She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her.
So, if you give her any crap, be ready
to receive a ton of shit." and that is LIFE

Spinach Frittata

a frittata is "a kind of Italian omelette's that can contain cheese, vegetables, or even leftover pasta. Frittatas are cooked slowly. Most often, they are cooked on the stove-top on low heat until the eggs are set, then run under the broiler, but they can also be baked. Except for the cooking fat, all ingredients are fully mixed with the eggs before cooking starts." I experimented with this frittata combination - eggs with spinach, onions, garlic, Parmesan, cheese and sun-dried tomatoes, and we all agreed here that the experiment was a success.


  • 1 lb spinach leaves (about 2 bunches), cleaned, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 9 large eggs
  • 2 Tbsp milk
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Sun-dried tomatoes, about 2 Tbsp chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 3 oz cheese curls


1 Preheat oven to 400�F.

2 Cook spinach in 1/4 cup of water in a covered saucepan until just wilted, a couple minutes. Drain water and set aside.

3 In a mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, and Parmesan cheese. Add in chopped sun-dried tomatoes, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Set aside.

4 Saut� onions in olive oil in an oven-proof, stick-free skillet, until translucent, about 4-5 minutes on medium heat. Add garlic and cook a minute further. Add cooked spinach and mix in with onions and garlic.

5 Spread out spinach mixture evenly on bottom of skillet. Pour egg mixture over spinach mixture. Use a spatula to lift up the spinach mixture along the sides of the pan to let egg mixture flow underneath.

6 Sprinkle bits of cheese curls over the top of the frittata mixture. When the mixture is about half set, put the whole pan in the oven. Bake for 13-15 minutes, until frittata is puffy and golden. Remove from oven with oven mitts and let cool for several minutes. Although the pan may be out of the oven for a few minutes, the handle is still very hot. To keep from accidentally picking it up by the handle while hot (speaking from experience, ouch!) take a piece of ice and melt it against the pan's handle to cool it down.

Cut into quarters to serve. Serves four.

This will make a fine meal some fruits like melon or cantaloupes on the side will be fine

Eggplant Parmesan

this it may be a bit more complicated but soooo good
I got this recipe from the new york time a few years ago and adopt it to my taste
The trick to Eggplant Parmesan is to drain the eggplant slices of excess moisture first, before cooking.


  • 2 lbs (about 2 large) eggplants
  • sea salt (I prefer but use what you like)
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup fine dry breadcrumbs
  • 4 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 1/2 lbs of fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced into 1/4 inch rounds
  • 1 cup grated high quality Parmesan cheese
  • 1 packed cup fresh basil leaves
  • Jard of spaghetti sauce (not meat)


Cut eggplants lengthwise into 1/4 inch slices. Arrange one layer in the bottom of a large colander and sprinkle evenly with salt. Repeat with remaining eggplant, salting, until all eggplant is in the colander. Weigh down the slices with a couple of plates and let drain for 2 hours. The purpose of this step is to have the eggplant release some of its moisture before cooking.

When eggplant has drained, press down on it to remove excess water, wipe off the excess salt, and lay the slices out on paper towels to remove all the moisture. In a wide, shallow bowl, combine flour and breadcrumbs. Mix well. Pour beaten eggs into another wide shallow bowl. Place a large, deep skillet over medium heat, and pour in a a half inch of olive oil. When oil is shimmering, dredge the eggplant slices first in the flour mixture, then in the beaten egg. Working in batches, slide coated eggplant into hot oil and fry until golden brown on both sides, turning once. Drain on paper towels.

Preheat the oven to 350�F. In the bottom of a 10x15 inch glass baking dish, spread 1 cup of tomato sauce. Top with one third of the eggplant slices. Top eggplant with half of the mozzarella slices. Sprinkle with one third of the Parmesan and half of the basil leaves.
Make a second layer of eggplant slices, topped by 1 cup of sauce, remaining mozzarella, half the remaining Parmesan, and all of the remaining basil. Add remaining eggplant, and top with the remaining tomato sauce and Parmesan. like if you was making a lasagna
Bake until cheese has melted and the top is slightly brown, about 30 minutes. Allow to rest at room temperature for about 10 minutes before serving.
serve around 8 people
serve some garlic bread and garden green salad


We have been trained as a society to buy food at the supermarket, get it as cheap as possible, and not consider where it came from, who it effects, or what it is doing to us. When you think about it, the whole thing seems fairly irresponsible.

Buy organic or sustainable food with little or no pesticides. According to the EPA, over 1 billion pounds of pesticides are used each year in the U.S. visit your local farmer's market. Tell Congress that food safety is important to you. Each year, contaminated food causes millions of illnesses and thousands of deaths in the U.S Demand job protections for farm workers and food processors, ensuring fair wages and other

The Missing Message

Most important message of our Spirituality today is that we are all one with God and with Humanity, this is the one element that is missing from most of the world's theologies. [Judaism, Islam and Christianity] -- and many others -- teach of a Creator who is separate from His creation
Because this message has been missing, humanity has been missing the mark in its attempts to create a world of peace and harmony and happiness, and religions have been missing the point of Life itself, causing millions of people to be missing the experience of Oneness with the Creator -- and with each other.


One out of 6 people suffer from chronic hunger that is a lot of people over a billion women, men and children die of starvation. By the time a family knows hunger, their poverty is extreme. The global economic downturn, is driving up the numbers of people in poverty all over the world
the Economic decline has affect those poor country even hardest. As food prices continue to skyrocket, hundreds of millions of poor people around the world face a terrible risk of hunger and disease. Hunger is unacceptable in a world that collectively has the knowledge and the resources to improve access to food.
