Hope for the New Year

Last chance to make a Tax Deductible donation before midnight 2014.!

 

A City girl's muse

It’s not enough to want the best, you must expect the best. To hope is to have an expectation and a desire for a particular thing to happen. So be hopeful. Be expectant. Expect to see fulfilment in the areas that seem incomplete now. Expect to see new sprouts in the areas that didn’t seem to blossom at all this year. Expect that you would be better at expecting the best and seeing the better side of things no matter what happens. Expect to surprise yourself with pleasant expectations of the impossible. Expect a few bumps along the way and expect to have a few bumpy drives along the path of success. Expect to pick yourself up when you run into a dead end and crash and fall. Expect to stay cheerful when this happens. Expect to keep your eye on that ball and expect to write down your gratitudes…

Millions of coffee makers recalled due to burn hazard

WASHINGTON (AP) — Keurig is recalling some 7 million of single-serve coffee brewing machines because of reported burns.

Keurig says its Mini Plus Brewing Systems, with model number K10, can overheat and spray water during brewing. Keurig says it had received about 200 reports of hot liquid escaping from the brewer, including 90 reports of burn-related injuries.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission released details on the recall Tuesday. The recalled brewers have an identification number starting with “31” printed on the bottom. They were sold online and in stores in the U.S. and Canada between 2009 and 2014. Featured image

Consumers are being urged to call Keurig Green Mountain Inc. of Waterbury, Vermont, at 1-844-255-7886 to arrange for free repair.

I Ran for the Chapstick

allaboutmanners

I ran for the Chapstick mom keeps in her purse.
My lips were so chapped that they couldn’t feel worse!
I dug through her handbag and pulled it out quickly,
then sighed in relief as I smeared it on thickly.
I felt so much better I almost rejoiced.
My painful, dry lips were now mended and moist.
My dad burst out laughing. My mom looked amused.
Her Chapstick was lost. That was lipstick I’d used.

SUNDAY AFTERNOON

allaboutmanners

Jan 1 (5)

 

I walk to find

A peace of mind

By the water’s edge,

River bursting from the rain

Still it feels the same

White feathered friends

Swim by my side

Like a dedicated friend, one so kind

Creating ripples, causing no harm

Creating ripples of calm

A window of still life

Walking by the waters side

A gust of wind now picks up my hair,

I’m in a place where I really don’t care

We should all take the time

To go somewhere tranquil

To find a peace of mind
