Happy New Years

“New Year's eve is like every other night; there is no pause in the march of the universe, no breathless moment of silence among created things that the passage of another twelve months may be noted; and yet no man has quite the same thoughts this evening that come with the coming of darkness on other nights”

Bucket List Updated

since Sunday was my 50th birthday I have been reflecting on my “Bucket List”and reposting,
what I have done so far;

I did the Excalibur Drive in Ireland
slept in a castle
swam in The Caribbean sea,
got my feet wet in the Irish Sea
had a daughter
had a son,watched them grow into wonderful adults
love my step children as my own
forgave my parents
found God
slept under the stars
ate and loved foi gras and drank Dom Perignon
stayed in love
adopted a cat,grieved his death
adopted a big dog
made a home
learned to love and embrace all homemaking skills
understand the charm of a apron
play an instrument with some decree of skill
play that instrument in church
Gave back by coaching a youth sports team
had my portrait drawn
Spent a whole day eating junk food without feeling guilty.
Made love outdoors
learnt how to sweat pipes
Had a room with a view
Sent a message in a bottle
Took a horse and buggy ride.
Did the all NYC tourist things,although I am a native.
Planted trees.
Learnt not to say yes when I really mean no
Made a complete and utter fool of myself many times
Took a ride on the highest roller coaster in the city
Spent a whole day reading a great novel
Made bread from scratch
became a good cook
Became a mentor to a young person who needed direction
Become a good listener
Spontaneously gave flowers to my husband for no reason
Got tattoos
Gave blood
Wished upon a shooting star
Visited some of the countries our ancestors called home
Taught a class
Kissed passionately in public
married my husband twice, once in city hall the a few years later in church
had a star named after me
sat front and center at Operas and Broadway shows
became a vegan
made a website
dunk a basketball

I am sure there are many more that havent came to memory yet,

I still want to,
survive menopause mentally intact!!!
see more operas
become a grandma
live in the country
grow an edible garden
foster a horse
own a toy dog
have a spa mud bath
Ride an elephant
Reflect on my greatest weakness, and realize how it is my greatest strength
Spend three months getting my body into optimum shape
Spend Christmas and New Year's in an exotic location
Learn to ballroom dance properly
Be an extra in a film
Make my own wine
Develope a talent for photography
find new antique shops
laugh until I cry
learn to love winter(or at least like it)
find a physical activity that both my hubby and I enjoy doing together
watch our kids living out their own Bucket List dreams
Kiss my husband passionately in public over and over again,
and shhhhh dont tell anyone but eat more foi gras and drink Dom Perignon.

Whats on your list?

Don't let today pass without remembering the thousands of men who landed and gave their lives on the sands of Normandy,
The veterans of that war are passing quickly away from us,
Saying hello to a veteran or shaking his or her hand and say thank you.The feeling of pride you will give the veteran will last forever.

True Beauty

Susan Boyle

Beauty... when you look into a woman's eyes and see what is in her heart.
-- Nate Dircks

That which is striking and beautiful is not always good, but that which is good is always beautiful.
-- Ninon de L'Enclos

Beauty is not real. Beauty only exists in perception.

Onward thru the Mess

Not in order,this is the fabric we used for the chairs and curtains,the pics dont show it but it has a light pink/beige
the paint and fabric on the walls will be my dining room,
notice all the color swatches on the table base,(they are being switched everyday,lol)
since the room will be painted all pale and my furniture is white,I was thinking about painting the base a color that pops,
but I will wait on that till the room is finished,to decided if I want to do this,
the colors in the pics are not the true colors,I don't know why but my pics never come out they way it truely looks,

well back to the madness,

Kitchen Paint

After much debate over paint color,we settled on something"safe"Elegant Ivory"
I have to say it takes a bit getting used too,after
having blue and yellow,but I like it,
I love the light hubby pick out the pics dont do it justice,
it has a dimmer so that is really nice,
I still have to get window treaments,and tidy up a bit,
but all and all it feels like a clean slate.

Vintage Valentines: Free Download

Vintage Valentines: Free Download

From my favorite tip site,
You’re free to download them and print them off to use in scrapbooking, as gift tags or whatever else you like. These are so charmingly retro and although they’re older than I am, they sure do bring back memories.

Have a Happy Valentine's Day,

By the Power of Greyskull,Hey Frankie Look!

By the Power of Greyskull!!
Posted for my son,
he was a livid collector of all things He-man
as a child,

Los Angeles

WB, Joel Silver shaping He-Man film
John Stevenson to direct live action 'Masters'

Warner Bros. and producer Joel Silver have set "Kung Fu Panda" co-director John Stevenson to make his live-action directing debut on "Masters of the Universe," a reimagining of the signature Mattel toy line.
Pic will revolve around He-Man, a prince who transforms into a warrior and becomes the last hope for a magical land being ravaged by the evil Skeletor.
Silver is producing through his Silver Pictures banner. Mattel's Barry Waldo will be exec producer.
WB acquired the property in 2007, and Justin Marks wrote the first draft of the script based on a story he developed with Neil Ellice.
The Mattel property was adapted into the 1980s cartoon series "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe."
The property was previously turned into a campy flop by Cannon Films in 1987, with Dolph Lungdren as He-Man and "Frost/Nixon" star Frank Langella as the villainous Skeletor.
The film project is a big priority for Mattel, which licenses a high-end line of He-Man toys that are popular with hardcore collectors.
Hollywood has become a magnet for branded toy-line properties, as DreamWorks and Paramount ready a June 26 release for "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" and Paramount preps for an Aug. 7 release on "G.I. Joe." Both began as toy lines that became hit animated series.
Waldo said Stevenson's vision to elevate the material matched with Mattel's desire to see He-Man become a big studio film. Mattel has also brought its "Hot Wheels" film to WB and Silver.
"John had such passion that we found ourselves running to catch up with his vision," Waldo said.
Stevenson has also worked on "Shrek" and "Shrek 2," "Madagascar" and "James and the Giant Peach." He began his career working for Jim Henson on projects that included "The Dark Crystal" and "Labyrinth."
