Marriage Counselor For a Day

I've got a solution for preserving a marriage.
I haven't tried & tested it yet. Its just an idea.
If a couple want to stay together, they should work in the same office.

They will have to follow the following rule though: Always have lunch together. Just the 2 of them.

I noticed a couple at work do that.  I applaud them.
I'm guessing that if they should get angry at each other in the AM, they will have to make up by lunch time so they can enjoy their lunch together.
If they get angry at each other in the PM, they will have to make up before bed time so they can munch on their errrm dessert. counselor

Clean strategy. Right?

Muammar & Steve

Freedom of press right?
Freedom of speech too. Check.

If you ever worked for Steve, you'd have an undesirable name for him.
A name similar to what Muammar was labeled.

If ever your activities were under Steve's supervision, you'd know about tears streaming down your cheeks because of your activities.
Muammar caused some to shed tears too.
Steve & Muammar would tell you it was about the big picture.

I mourn Steve & Muammar differently.
Icons of brilliance gone.
Progress from here on is what makes me weep for one more than the other.

R.I.P. Colonel

May God have mercy on your soul and give you a resting place by his side.
You had your faults but you did more good than you get credit for.
If you were that bad, how did Libya maintain the following under your 42 year rule
- highest nominal GDP per capita in Africa
- most favorable doctor/ patient ratio on the continent
- infant mortality rate of 15 per 1000 births
You must have been doing something right!

Thanks for RASCOM!
I was looking fwd to seeing the plans you had for a self-sufficient continent. Especially the bank.

May the souls of sons & daughters killed during this uprising, rest in peace.

True Story True Story

Readers Digest says it is a true story. :-) Enjoy the upcoming weekend

911 Dispatch: 9 -1 - 1. What is your emergency?

Man: "Yeah, I'm having trouble breathing. I'm all out of breath"

911 Dispatch: "Sir, where are you calling from?"

Man: "I'm at a pay-phone. North & Foster"

911 Dispatch: "Sir, an ambulance is on the way. What were you doing when you started having trouble breathing?"

Man: I was running from the Police"

Being CEO of a Country

As Head of my Household, I would wisely select which of my neighbors I'd go to if I needed to borrow a few spoons of sugar.
I would certainly stay away from the neighbor that would tell the whole world that I came a-borrowing.
Another neighbor I'd stay away from is the one that would want me to pay him back 5 times more sugar than I borrowed, and yet tell me straight-up that he wants me to be self-sufficient.
Then there is that other neighbor that will give me half the sugar I need but will tell me what to use it for. I'd stay away from him too.

It beats my imagination why Ghanaian leaders - the proud masculine fathers & husbands that they are - appear to run the country differently.
Running a househol. Running a business. Running a country.
The basics should be similar. Right?

I don't get it. That is probably why I am not a politician.

One Of My Favorite Songs

I and I old I know
I and I old I say
I and I reconsider
I and I see upfully that
Christopher Columbus is a damn blasted liar
Christopher Columbus is a damn blasted liar
Yes Jah

He's saying that, he is the first one
who discover Jamaica
I and I say that,
What about the Arawak Indians and the few Black man
Who were around here, before him
The Indians couldn't hang on no longer
Here comes first Black man and woman and children,
In a Jam Down Land ya
A whole heap of mix up and mix up
A whole heap a ben up, ben up,
We have fi straighten out,
Christopher Columbus is a damn blasted liar
Christopher Columbus is a damn blasted liar
Yes Jah

I'd Be On It!

There was a segment on my local TV news about a woman who seemed upset that her husband wanted her to look like and act like the hot & talented Shania Twain.

I asked myself: "Self, what would you do if your wife or girlfriend asked you to be exactly like her favorite superstar?"
My first response will be "how soon?"

Who ever it is, I'm doing all it takes to be that person!
Can you imagine the benefits? OMG
You know how fans scream, cry & do all that crazy stuff when they see the superstars they love?
I'll show up at her office everyday just for kicks. I can see it now; she'll be screaming & crying as I walk up to her.
All I need to do is hold her hand and she'll pass out. Then I leave. "See you at home honey. Denzel loves you too!"
I'll wink at her co-workers on my way out and whisper "Yep! I'm da man!"

Anytime she gets mad at me, I'm quoting a line from her favorite movie or something and she'll melt in my hand.

Of course, I'd be dating an intelligent woman so her favorite superstar wouldn't be some crazy cat I wouldn't even want to be in the same room with let alone act like.

Would you laugh in your partner's face is he/she made such a proposition? Or would you feel hurt?

Dry, Yet Wet

I'm about to visit a city I have never been to. My to-do list includes checking if the city is in a dry county. [Local governments of dry counties prohibit the sale of alcohol]
That had me thinking; I can't imagine Ghana having a city where alcohol is prohibited. We seem to enjoy our liquor don't we?

Monday Monday

Happy Monday to you!
Whatever comes at you today, get yourself to not stress about it.
I read that heart attacks occur mostly between 4am to 10am on Mondays.

If you are able to curb the stress during that time, just stay on that wave and keep saying buh-bye to stress.

(I havent seen the raw data for that study but it sure is a good reminder for me to take it easy on Mondays)
