Just Checking

to see if anyone still happens by this blog. It's been so long, but life has
been happening. I've contemplated blogging again, but find that much people seems to be dropping off the blogsphere now that there is Twitter and Facebook. So this is just a trial entry

The Bucket List

First before I get to the posting at hand, let me congratulate the Democratic Labor Party (DLP), Prime Minister Elect David Thompson and the people of Barbados for a victorious election win over the Barbados Labor Party and it's fareless leader Owen Arthur. Although it would have been nice to see the BLP make the historic 4th term win, these elections shows Barbadians and the international community at large that democracy is very much alive and well in Barados.

So we've all talked about when someone kicks the bucket..have you ever thought about where that phrase came from? Neither have I, but it's a commonly used one...so n' so done kick the bucket or when I finally kick the bucket...what a interesting analogy about death or crossing over to the other side. Well this new movie with Morgan Freeman and Jack Nichlolson is about just that. The Bucket List the story of two strangers who meet in a hospital room. They are told they both have 6 mths to a year to live. so stranger #1 Carter Chambers (Morgan Freeman) decides to write his Bucket List. A list of things he wants to accomplish before he kicks the bucket. I'll leave the stroy there, go see it and seehow it turns out.

But this leaves me wondering. what should be on my Bucket List. What's on your Bucket List?

OK let's see...

Ms. Camp Bucket list in no particular order

1- See my grandchild/children
2- Visit the Motherland
3- Visit Australia
4- Learn a new sport
5- Master a new language
6- Touch someones life in a profound way
7- Be at peace with myself
8- Open a Bed & Breakfast
9- Be debt free
10- Share the love

Life Lessons

By Regina Brett The Plain Dealer, Cleveland, Ohio

I got this in the mail not so long ago, and figuring that I've just turned another page in my cycle of life, what a better way to start a new year in so many ways.

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

4. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

5. Pay off your credit cards every month.

6. You don't have to win every argument Agree to disagree.

7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.

8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.

9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.

10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.

12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.

13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.

15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks.

16. Life is too short for long pity parties. Get busy living, or get busy dying.

17. You can get through anything if you stay put in today.

18. A writer writes. If you want to be a writer, write.
