SHARE YOUR WORLD – 2016 WEEK 24

back2-school2With your answers, please remember we are in the SYW world which may not always match our reality.

What is the most fun thing you did in school?

Any type of Art! Also a cinematography class I took in my Senior Year of High School. All we did was watch movies! The funniest part of that semester was when my teacher answered a knock at the door and when he opened it somebody plastered him with a Coconut Cream pie!! LOL!!  Shades of Soupy Sales!!

What is your favorite type of dog?  (can be anything from a specific breed, a stuffed animal or character in a movie)

Beagles. Had a Beagle named Dolly when I was a little girl. Also I’m a big Snoopy fan.

You are invited to a party that will be attended by many fascinating people you never met.  Would you attend this party if you were to go by yourself?

Sure! Why not?!  Since I’m a Single Lady I do many activities and attend many functions alone. Great way to meet people and have some interesting conversations

Complete this sentence:  Never In My Life Have I…. 

Bungee Jumped or Parachuted out of a plane. And I never will!!  Fear of heights! Riding in an Army helicopter, C 130 & C 140 was enough for me while I was in the Army!

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

Just happy not to be in as much pain as I was last week. Those of you who suffer from arthritis and back pain know what I mean. Yesterday I was able to sweep, mop my floor and continue with my Spring Cleaning program!  Hooray!! Some days I’m totally sidelined by extreme pain but this past weekend was good and I accomplished lots of cleaning!!  Happy! Happy! Joy! Joy!!

Looking forward to next weekend and the opportunity to rest, relax and sleep!!

Do For Self!!


For the last few days my arthritis has been kicking up and my ankles are a little swollen.
 
Am I taking this lying down? No!! Well some rest but I’m taking abbreviated Soulful Struts and I’ve also purchased Turmeric, MSM, Biotin and Moringa Living Bitters which brings me to my next topic.
 
The Turmeric I got on Amazon which is convenient during the cold months when I do not want to go traipsing about freezing New York City searching for various vitamins and food supplements.
 
The MSM and Biotin I got from GNC around 84th Street and Lexington. I find their staff to be indifferent and somewhat rude so I will be patronizing my own people. Bottles of vitamins and other products blocked the cash register. The two clerks spent a lot of time gossiping and were not helpful.
 
The Moringa Living Bitters I purchased from Zam Zam an African store located along Fulton Street near Franklin Avenue. Moringa Living Bitters is a Detox and Energy Beverage which is all Natural and Organic. Taste terrible but so did the Cod Liver Oil Beef Iron wine my Dad used to make us take as children.
 
The young man in the store was professional, knowledgeable and polite. The store was neatly arranged, clean and smelled great!! Zam Zam offers an excellent wide selection of African products for reasonable prices. Health and Beauty, Cosmetics, Holistic supplements. Everything.
 
Moral of the Story for peoples of African Descent. Buy Black!! Don’t just complain about the disrespect we regularly get from certain other stores owned by other races. Let’s Move our dollars to our Black Owned stores circulating dollars within our community thus building up the race without having to rely on anyone else but ourselves!! Let us form Alliances with Africa and African merchants in order to better our situation!!
 
DO FOR SELF!! BUY BLACK!!!

Stephen’s Upcoming 55th Birthday Celebration


 

Greetings Family and Friends!! My brother Stephen’s 55th Birthday Celebration is coming May 3rd. Two things I need.

Anyone in the NYC area who has a car who could help me pick up Stephen from his group home in Bellerose, Queens and bring him to Brownsville, Brooklyn would be much appreciated. Pick up May 1st. Return to Queens Residence May 4th. I will pay you for gas.

Stephen has Autism and I am his only living relative so I have no one else who can assist me.

Nov. 7th 2008 I had a minor stroke which affected my eyesight particularly the vision in my left eye. My eyesight is now 20/100 and I can no longer drive  car.  Retina surgery in Jan.2010 only partially corrected my vision problems.

I have always tried to be independent and do things on my own but as I’m getting older there are certain functions with which I need help.  Those of you who have followed me for a while know that I struggle with my job, doing overtime and suffering the effects of standing for long hours on hard floors.  Arthritis is no joke!!

Guess I’ve finally realized that I cannot do everything on my own.  So I’m trying to establish a supportive network.  Hopefully other people with developmentally disabled siblings with join with me.

Also Stephen loves sunglasses and key chains/rings. I’m collecting those and hope to put the key chains in a decorative jar for his special born day celebration. Plus baseball caps. Since Stephen is now bald he really loves baseball caps!  🙂

Please contact me via my email address.

Monetary Blessings/Donations can be made to my PayPal account using my email address: deborah.palmer280@gmail.com.

Many Thanks and God Bless!

Handwriting

Many of us have heard the expression “Handwriting on the Wall.”  Here is where it may have originated.

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Daniel%205

Daniel 5 New King James Version (NKJV)

In the same hour the fingers of a man’s hand appeared and wrote opposite the lampstand on the plaster of the wall of the king’s palace; and the king saw the part of the hand that wrote. Then the king’s countenance changed, and his thoughts troubled him, so that the joints of his hips were loosened and his knees knocked against each other.

Ambidextrous

Some people are Ambidextrous. I am not one of them. I’m right handed. Stephen is left handed.  Because of past battles with carpel tunnel syndrome and current wars with arthritis I hate to sign paperwork or documents.  As a writer I carry around a small notebook but some days I can’t even read my own handwriting!!

 

am·bi·dex·trous
ˌambēˈdekst(ə)rəs/
adjective
  1. (of a person) able to use the right and left hands equally well.
    “few of us are naturally ambidextrous”
    • (of an implement) designed to be used by left-handed and right-handed people with equal ease.

Automatic writing

Some people have or claim to have the ability to write messages from the great beyond. I’ve had my own spiritual or out of body experiences so perhaps there is some truth to this ability.  Personally I believe in approaching the spirit world with great care for both evil and good exists in these realms.

Automatic Handwriting: Messages from Beyond

寒山
“Kanzan” (Cold Mountain)

Artist: Inoue Yūichi (Japanese, 1916–1985)
Period: Showa period (1926–89)
Date: 1966

I am not a linguist by any stretch of the imagination but I believe handwriting encompasses not only alphabets used by many cultures but pictorial etchings including Egyptian hieroglyphics. Love Japanese, Farsi and Arabic writing also. I find character based handwriting fascinating. Calligraphy is one of my favorite art forms.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calligraphy

When I was a little girl I made up my own personal alphabet, handwriting and words. Designed a book in which my main character Mr. X had various adventures. I could not have been more than seven or eight.  Not to brag but I was creatively gifted as a child and my parents encouraged me. They were always buying me various art supplies and Mom and Dad kept me engaged with arts & crafts. As for my book I think it lies in the bottom of my trunk which is now in storage until I can once more afford my own place.

SHARE YOUR WORLD – 2016 WEEK 7

What are you a “natural” at doing? 

Writing and photography.

Would you prefer a one floor house or multiple levels?

One Floor House. As I get older my arthritis is getting worse and my ability to climb stairs is like trying to scale Mt. Everest. I suffer from chronic back pain along with joint pain. My knees and other joints sound like Rice Krispies. You know Snap, Crackle & Pop!

As Lil Abner from the comics used to say, “If I had my ‘Druthers”  My wish would be for a one story one level home with No Stairs.

What was your favorite subject in school?

English and History.

Complete this sentence: If only the rain..

would come when I’m in my house and can stay indoors until it stops!!  Rain, snow and any precipitation is cause for joint pain so who knows I might move to a drier climate once I retire.
