We even have an iPeace Group HERE

What is Peace to you? Sure it is about no wars and no fighting..but Peace means so much more...Peace is walking away from an argument or the beginning of an argument, because you know that it just is not worth the agony it will cause others around you.

Peace is accepting that not everyone is alike and that some one might look different from you or act differently or speak differently or even think differently, but you remember how bland and boring the world would be if we were all clones.

Join people in over 40 countries...thousands of people NOT like you (except they too want peace), and unite in a call for a Peaceful World on November 5th.

Say a prayer for Mimi and her family please...

Check out the results over at TRAV'S THOUGHTS. Travis will have the full recap and, if he can, some video clips from the show on Monday...Always a great stop in your blog reading journey!

I am trying to make blog rounds as much as possible these days but it is preparation time for 2010 and I am deep into wrapping up my 2009 budgets. To top it off, the IT darlings have clamped down again and there are some blogs they will not even let me see as I eat my sammich at lunch. I mean really folks, what is wrong with a blog that talks about Peace and dancing??? Yet Travis is now are a few others and every day they cut them down. OH and forget about seeing any pictures...

I know, I complained about this recently and even got scolded by my mommy who wanted to know how I could work and read blogs all day - but that is usually my lunch time routine.

Promise...slowly I will catch up with y'all...and I am going to bring back some music since it seems people are not having troubles loading The Couch since I backed down to two days on the front page. I also got rid of the Google translate widget, since I heard from a couple of people that they were getting errors because of it...

I love writing this blog, but if people can't get here and sit and relax, then it is no fun...

Now, if there is no post tomorrow it may be because my external hard drive crashed and I am in the middle of rebuilding it. After the radio show last night, I am recovering the files that were stored on it onto my main computer, then I have to erase and rebuild the external hard drive. During that portion of the operation I may not have access to my computer...and we have a business dinner tonight which could go late...


Remember, Maggie is still running her sale for some de-e-e-e-licious treats...

  8. Jay Says:
  9. Do you have a laptop with a wireless card? You might find someone close by has an open signal and you can "borrow" theirs.

    Can you read blogs in Google Reader while at work? You could at least read them and then go back later and comment real quick.

    Just call me Mr. Helpful. ;-)

  10. BUD: yup yup...twins! PERK!!!!

    JAY: Nope no laptop...see now google reader..why did I not think of that!

    You are helpful dude!

  13. Travis Cody Says:
  14. Sorry about the IT police. It sucks when you can't even do what you want at lunchtime.

    You have my compliments again on the Worker Bee badge. You did a great job.

  15. Dana Says:
  16. I'm with you on the blog reading issues. We've got a similar thing going on at work, and life outside of work has been just crazy for the last three months ... which is why I'm commenting on this post three days late :)

  17. Dianne Says:
  18. seems you should be able to do what you want at lunch

    oh well

    just stopped by to say hi

  19. Can't see photos? Now that's just wrong!

  20. Hey, you want I should send Guido and Bruno to have a "chat" with your IT Nazis? 'Cause they will, ya know?

    I'm just sayin'...

  21. Patti Says:
  22. Sorry my kitty hypnotized you, Vinny. ;-)

    I agree with Dianne that you should be able to do what you want on your lunch hour.

    Not fair, I tell ya. I work at home. I can eat all day and blog if I so desire...The trade-off is I make diddly-squat.

    Oops, did I just swear?

  23. Sounds like some serious repairs. Hope everything goes well.

  24. Mama Zen Says:
  25. Thanks for the reminder! I haven't done my peace globe, yet.

  26. Coco Says:
  27. *hisses at Bond's IT Nazis*

    Peace to me is watching my son regain lost ground over the past 2+ weeks. Everything else is relative now.
