Communities I Manage (Stuff I Like)

Quotes I Like:

"You can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights" ~ Maya Angelou

"Determination is born out of purpose...knowing that you are gifted for something and this something must be attained. It is never enough to rely on luck or natural talent. You must, above all, believe in yourself, face your goals, and then fight as if your life depended on it"

Be who you are and say what you feel, cause those who mind.. don't matter.. and those who matter... don't mind... ~ Dr Seuss.

" It is what it is, it's not what it should have been, not what it could have been, it is what it is" ~ Nicole Kidman

"Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find it vanity;
but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, and make it possible." ~ T.E. Lawrence

"Progress is not made by early risers or hard workers, but by Lazy people trying to find easier ways to do the same." ~ Henry Ford

Jaime Lannister figurine 

That's a pretty cool figurine. If I had room to get more stuff, this would be added to the collection.

Is it April yet? I can't wait for the new season.

Education about Islamic State - What do you REALLY know about it?

I'll fully admit it. I did not know enough about IS/ISIS/Da'esh and why these people would do this to Paris or other places. Heck I didn't even know enough about al-Qaeda or the difference between Islam(The name of the religion - like Catholic or Protestant) and Muslim ( A person who follows the Islamic religion - Like Christian) and The media i'm getting doesn't seem to know a lot of these things either. So I did some research. This really really really long article points out a lot of information about these topics. I found upon discussion most of my friends and family didn't know practically anything about any of these topics either.... So if that's you and you want to educated yourself a bit more about these topics before making ridiculous public Google Plus statements.... Have a read.

and because no one article or point gets it quite right....

I read it.. and why these attacks are happening and what this small group of religious extremists (similar to say KKK or Westboro Church) may believe.

I wasn't going to post this.. but as Google Plus continues to post inexcusable things... I thought I should take this brief moment to post something to my wall of millioins of people that could possibly make a small difference...even just to one. It's ok to not know these things.. I really think our Western Media is failing on them... but to just make statements out of fear is never good. Education can always help. I welcome similar articles you've found about the topics... but .. be rude on these comments and feel my blocky button wrath with no mercy.
The Islamic State is no mere collection of psychopaths. It is a religious group with carefully considered beliefs, among them that it is a key agent of the coming apocalypse. Here’s what that means for its strategy—and for how to stop it.

When traveling it can be nerve racking to visit a foreign stylist... But not here. This salon is amazing! They take time to get to know what you want, listen and make you beautiful! I fully recommend going by if you are trying to find a place to get pretty!

The Pyramid hotel in Vegas. Large, fun and lots of slots. But the rooms are small and likely will be part of the slanted pyramid experience. Good for a budget trip!

This place is seriously in need of a decor update. The only had 1 type of beer on tap. We decided on the poutine for a quick snack. It came quick and actually the poutine was amazing. Good fresh crispy fries and fresh cheese curds and gravy.

A large airport as an alternative to New York. No wifi. Yes seriously. You can try and access it from outside the unite club lounge, but otherwise expect to pay for it.
