A short ‘exile’

Published May 29, 2010 by ladyserenity92

How was your week?

Sorry for the delay.

I just had to take a ‘short’ exile.

Just can’t overwork myself to death.

Sleep well, Gary Coleman!

And to all of you, brave men and women on this Memorial Day weekend!

Have a restful holiday!

Stay tuned!

There’s no Such thing as a ‘Perfect’ blog!

Published May 23, 2010 by ladyserenity92

As summer arrives and many people are finding things to do, this ‘message’ is about ‘Internet Safety’. This is for everyone. Please pass along!

Every blog and blogger has its kindness, its strong-points and its weakness.
Sure a blog can be on the right-side from a 12-year old future ‘Annie Coultuer’,
Or, on the left-side of the brain from a young 80-something Jewish actor named ‘Dick’ who likes to ‘trick’ many of his fans in the cafe of Paris.
If you are a first-time blogger or a long time user, remember this…
There is no such thing as a ‘perfect’ blog or a perfect blogger.
Be careful what you say and post on your page. Even if you’re ‘nameless’, you will be found out sooner or later.
By a friend, a cleric;even a relative is going to find out about your e-log.
Some of the things that you post may hurt, damage or might get you arrested.
You may face deportation or get ‘topped out’.
‘Topped out’ means ‘to get slained’.
If you know someone who is posting something dreadful about you or someone you know, tell a trusted person that you know right away.
There’s no such thing as a perfect blog.
But there are bad people and bad blogs that can hurt you.
Trust your gut and the buzzer in your head.
Stay safe!
Stay Tuned!

Hearts

Published May 21, 2010 by ladyserenity92

Helping hearts.

Giving hearts.

Losing hearts.

No matter what kind of heart you have,

Please don’t lose it by doing something to damage it.

You only have one heart.

And once it’s gone,

You’re done son.

This is for everybody with a heart. Eat right, exercise daily, and butt out the smokes.

Be happy and not be filled with the bitterness of jealousy and hate.

Count your blessing for being alive for just another day.

Have a blessed day!

Stay Tuned!

Here’s a ‘special’ song that will make you think about ‘hearts’!

Just the Facts!

Published May 20, 2010 by ladyserenity92

This is a true ‘quote’. Please don’t get upset about it, I’ve found this in a ‘fact book’!

On average; women utter 7,000 a day.
Men on the other hand… utter only 2,000.

And you wonder why women are talkers and successful in the fight of the roses and lilies.

And women are ‘smart’, too.

Give girls and women a chance!

You’d be surprised at what they know.

Stay tuned!

See you on Facebook or MySpace?

Published May 19, 2010 by ladyserenity92

As I face many changes in the final days of May 2010 and the Summer of 2010 is  creeping up, I have recently told some of my old friends and sensei'(teachers) that I would see them on MySpace. Since I am painfully shy and don’t have many friends, I had hoped to have two profile pages. MySpace was one blog that I wanted just for family and friends. At the tail side of the coin, I wanted to make a Facebook page for you guys and gals about my blog.

Then there’s a ‘new’ email address that I want to give to my family and friends(plus, I need a new email address for ‘job’ finding purposes.)
It was to be a google email.
Now, I’m in a lot of trouble and just plain stuck.
With so many people making an exodus out of Facebook on May 31st due to its cheap-shot deceptions, Google in hot water once again for being like ‘Big Brother’ to its visitors; and MySpace is just as cold as Sub-Zero at a kids’ birthday party.

Oh my star cards! I’m in a tight tug of war.

Sorry, gang! Many people nowadays want people who are like cyberellas and cyberfellas to join into their esoteric circle.

Paper and pen writers or typewriter typist need not apply.

Stay tuned!

Facts about ‘South Carolina’

Published May 14, 2010 by ladyserenity92

 I wrote some notes on a piece of notebook paper back on my vacation in ca.2006. Please enjoy.

Facts about ‘South Carolina’

The state capital of S.C.: Columbia.
The state bird:Carolina wren.
The state flower: Yellow Jasmine(The song lyric ‘Summer Breeze’ has a line that ‘hints’ this flower.)
State mammal: Whitetail deer.(Bambi lives there!)
State game bird: Wild turkey.(Thanksgiving at my sister’s house!)
State gemstone: Amethyst(Hey, I have a geo of one in my bedroom!) 😀
State song: ‘Carolina’. (Might be James Taylor’s “Carolina” (?).
State hospitably drinks: belive it or not, both tea and milk are the two state drinks of South Carolina. In fact, during a visit, I combined the two drinks together and made milk tea. Milk tea is very good. After you made your  ‘sun tea’, put some milk in the tea(and a sweetener/sugar, if you wish), mix it up and put the tea in the refrigerator for about three hours max.(I sometimes leave mines in the ‘frige a little longer.)

After your milk tea is cold, serve a glass to everyone and for yourself. This is a ‘British-style drink’. But what ever you do, don’t put any lemons or lemon juice in the tea with the milk. Milk is a liuque and lemon juice is an acid. When mixed together, the lemon juice causes a ‘cuddle’ effect to the milk.
State tree:Palmetto(When you first visit South Carolina, you often mistake a palmetto tree for a palm tree. Palmetto trees are distant relatives to the palm trees.)
State fruit: Peach(Since there are beaches, I wonder if there are people selling peaches on the boardwalk? Peaches are much tastier, and lest expansive than ice cream.)
State butterfly: Eastern tiger swallowtail(My heroine in my novel called “Such Sweet Sorrow” was called ‘Butterfly’.)
State seashell: Lettered Olive oyster.(South Carolina is heaven to sea shell captors and collectors.)
State stone: Blue granite.
If your ever hungry, South Carolina has a lot of seafood and rice dishes. The ‘State’ dish that South Carolina is famous for is their Gullhula-rice dish ‘Pallou’. Prallou is like Spanish Pallea, but there are different versions of the dish that are based from region to region. I have a recipe for both pallou and sun milk tea. I’ll post the two recipes on my ‘Recipes’ category.

This ‘note’ was an ‘outline’ based on my novel ‘Such Sweet Sorrow’. It has been three years since I’ve placed my novel on  hiatus. Just like ‘Caolina’, Butterfly and Ray are still on my mind to this day. Someday I’ll finish up the novel and other projects that I’ve put off. Only time may tell.

The original story was set in Charleston County, in a fictitious seashore island town called ‘Blue Vision’.

Just like forbidden love, writing a novel is so complicated!

Stay Tuned!

Lena Horne/A girl named Lena

Published May 12, 2010 by ladyserenity92

Although this was on the news a few days ago, something told me to post it just for ‘them’. This post is about how a woman, in sprite of the hardships and suffering she endured; she never gave up her dreams. As you read this post, think about the dreams that you want to make. It’s never too late to make a dream happen. When you are gone from this world, the dream dies forever. Lena Horne was a lovely lady. Although I never got a chance to meet her, she will live on forever in her music and in her spirit.

The world has just lost a wonderful lady.

And there is a new star in the sky.

Lena Horne died Sunday in her home in Manhattan. She was 92 years young.

She was a revolutionary in the Black movement and the feminist movement.

( Horne once told a news reporter that she never intended to be a revolutionary at all. She just wanted to be in the movies and sing.)

At just 26 her dad placed his bets with all of his winnings from ‘illigeal’ gambling, and flew his ‘starry’ eyed starlet on a trip to Hollywood, California.

Horne was faced with the two dragon-gate keepers of sexism and racism on the streets of Hollywood. The dragon gatekeepers tried everything to snuff out the dreams of the ‘female-negro’ newcomer.

Unlike some ‘starry’ eyed starlets that would throw in their stars and dreams over the Hollywood sign(in most some cases, themselves); young Lena had her dad’s strong-will and detonation and slayed the two dream-stealing dragons of sexism and racism. As a result, Horne not only made a way for herself, but for other women of many walks of life.

Cicely Tyson and Hallie Berry are just a few of hundreds of women who have Lena Horne to thank.

It was on that day that a young classmate had a mother who was a fan of western movies. It was an ‘American’ movie my classmate’s mother saw and decided to name her daughter in honor of the woman whose voice has giving  her family ‘hope’ to this day.

The mother of the daughter/classmate: Lena. Lena’s family came from Vietnam to escape from the collapse of their country. It was the movie and songs of Lena Horne that gave my friends family hope and light in a cold and strange new land. To this day, my classmate and her family love music and movies. Lena is now an aunt to a young boy. In fact, it was a song that prevented her older sister not to have an abortion.

It just comes to show, the power of music always has an effect on the people who listen to its spirit.

Thanks to Ms. Horne, all females all over have a heroine to look up to.

As a brand new star in the sky that will never fade.

Lena Horne(1917–2010)
