Hello WordPress Blog!

Well the summer heat is on us and the time is flying by. I live by the beach and it is so crowded I can’t even get to the boardwalk. But I have my flower garden and my vegetable plants and life is good. Really I don’t go to the beach much in the summer because of the crowds and I find my favorite time is in the fall, winter and spring. I have been getting into my photography a little more and love some of the pictures I get. I take pics of flowers and birds and some of the little beaches that do not draw a crowd and I am really learning more about my camera. Enough rambling about me and I will come back with some good content next time! Enjoy the season wherever you are and treat others as you would want them to treat you! Much love, Jim

Business Today

You know what I hate?  The way business is done over the phone! Every time you call any company to find out information you have to go through prompts and then some more prompts and then sometimes into a Queue. Then after that you wait while ads run for that company and then sometimes you hear,click. Not that long ago you could call a business and talk to a real person and they would put you through to the correct person. I am a very patient person, but I get so upset with the process these days.

When I start my business in the near future I will answer the phone myself and if I got to a point that I could not answer I would hire a person to talk for me. I believe people would just love to have someone actually answer the phone and get things done. The problem is companies just need to make that extra profit and they lose out on what people really want, a hello and then a “Have a Great Day”!

Next will be my problem with people driving 35 in a 50!!!@#$%%^

Have a Wonderful Day! Jim

Summer

Hello my friends!  Well I believe this is the first day of summer and so far it has been really hot outside, like August hot!  I love this time of year because I can get out and get so much done. My passion at this time is my yard. Living by the beach I could never get plants that I liked to grow in the sand. People have told me to do this and that to make it possible but I decided to go another route. I put down a few yards of mulch down in my front yard and I started all of my plants in pots.

My neighbors looked at me a little funny and they said thats nice. Well, now everyone is telling me how nice it looks with such a variety of colors. It is much easier to control and I save on water just watering the pots. Now that is the front yard. Now in the back yard I have my vegetables growing in pots. I have a variety of tomatoes, peppers, lettuce and herbs. I threw in a few flowers for more color. Working in the yard is my therapy. I sweat a lot and drink a lot of water and love it! It was in the high 90’s last week and humid and I was in heaven. I can’t get down to the ground because of my disability but the stretching does me good and I feel so much better afterwards and I sleep great at night. I will have my projects finished this week and I will post some pictures for all to see. Go out and enjoy the outdoors and have some fun! Do what makes you feel good! See you on the next post!   Jim

Rain Rain

Hello People! Today is just like yesterday and the day before, cloudy with rain. I know we need the rain and the farmers are happy and the dried up areas where water once flowed are getting back to normal, but for me I have had enough. I look outside and my plants like it and my flowers like it but I want to see the sun again. I hear in a couple days it will come back and the temperature will be much warmer, and I am good with that. My arthritis will be happier and my state of mind will be too.

So as I sit at my desk and stare out at the rain I can have some happy feelings knowing that the sun will come out soon and I will be out there with it having a great time!

A Typical Day On Mars

So I just got back from a ride on my Surface Rover and it really is a slow day. I found another lake and a few more mountains but all was quiet. There is not a lot to do here but I make the best of my time. Just saw some solar flares and another star shower and I sit back and dream about my time on the moon. It was much colder there but when it got dark you could not see your hand in front of your face. I’m now planning my trip to the really red side now and I will send you some exciting news from there. I sure miss my mom! Have a Wonderful Day Writing 101!!   Jim

Happy Sunday

What a beautiful day here in Delaware, with light breezes and blue sky’s over the ocean in Rehoboth Beach. I moved here 10 years ago when I turned fifty because I wanted to start my life over. I was tired of the hectic existence in the city and I just wanted to be near the ocean. With the crazy work I did, working too many hours and never feeling peace I just thought let’s pack up and go to the beach. I ended my business and sold at least half of my things and made the move. Best move ever! The last ten years have had ups and downs but life is so good now. I have less money now, but I always have enough. My wife is  a children’s book writer working on getting that first one down. I am a power seller on Ebay because I became disabled five years ago. I have constant pain, but I am very happy. I am a positive thinker and that is what my blog is about. You can make a choice, to be happy with your life or to be miserable. I like to help others with becoming that happy person that they are trying to find. It’s all in front of you, you just have to believe and you can achieve! Follow my blog and let me know your thoughts. Spring is here and I will be out in the yard in my garden. Have a Wonderful day!!  Jim

Happy Thursday People!

Hello my friends! I wanted to write one more blog about the Liebster award. When I was notified about the award I thought to myself, why would I get an award. First off, I have only written five or six blogs since taking a blogging course called Blogging 101. I am still trying to figure out how to use WordPress so I can’t be very deserving.

I will say I was happy to be nominated from a person who I believe has a very good blog. I was to nominate six blogs for receiving the same award and write out eleven questions for them to answer. Odd! I did need to answer eleven questions from the person that nominated me, I thought, okay I will do what is needed and go on. If you read my last two blogs you would see I was a little stressed about the procedure and the questions I was asking of the nominees. After sending out the questions I felt very bad subjecting anyone to even answer, and I apologize for asking them. Lucky for me, no one answered them and I am good with that.

I felt from the beginning like I should decline the award, but I thought that would be rude. I had a hard time just picking six blogs and then having to write those questions. So that is my story and I’m sticking to it! I like the blog of the one that offered me the award and I like all of the blogs that have even just peeked at mine.

So on Friday I will resume trying to write content to help people with their goals and their dreams of living a positive healthy life. I feel better already just writing this post and I hope I do not offend anyone. I want to earn my stripes, one blog at a time!  Love Jim

Nominations For The Liebster Award Part Two

Well, as you know I have a problem with my posting about this award. So in part two I am putting out the questions for my 6 nominees. Here are my questions;

1. How long have you been blogging?

2. Do you have other blogs that you would like to share?

3. What state or country do you live?

4. What do you sometimes dream about?

5. Do you collect anything as a hobby?

6.  What you blog about, is it your passion?

7. Do you feel like you are a good friend?

8. Do you use any other social media tools, Facebook, Twitter etc?

9. Do you enjoy what you do?

10. Do you do a lot of traveling, and if so where have you been?

11. Do you recently take the Blogging 101 course?

Now the deal was that you answer these questions and send them back to me, and then you name 6 blogs

that you would nominate and write 11 questions for them to answer. I know this is a little different way to do

but it might just work. I believe this is a good way to meet other blogs at the same time. We will see how

this goes. Jim

Nominations For The Liepster Award

Hello People! Well I opened an email last night and found out that I had been nominated for a Liepster Award for my blog. First off, I was amazed that I even could be nominated for it and I felt a little fuzzy about it. Me, and award for my blog! I was nominated from Michelle at a wonderful page called called “a little bit of everything” and had instructions on what to do.

As she could now tell you I am not very good using my computer for the task I was supposed to do. I answered 11 questions she wrote for me to answer and I am supposed to nominate 6 blogs that I like and then write 11 questions for them to answer.

No problem naming the 6 blogs and they are as following:

1. American Writers Exposed

2.Bestthingsinlife1964

3. Send Sunshine

4. Muhammad Ashhar

5. kathrynsully

6. patchworkrainbows

So these are the pages that I nominate! I have been only a couple times to each page but I know these a

are very good pages with great content that I’m interested in. Now I have 11 questions that I wanted them

to answer. The problem I have is just like I can’t get my writing on the right spacing, I am not very good with

with computer skills. I believe I write what I want to say but as you can see, not very good. I know someone

will help me with this and until then I will hold back my questions. So I want to say to Michelle who

added me for this award a big thank you, and to the 6 I have named, congratulations on this honor.

You will now find me in the doghouse waiting for help! love Jim
