Last night was a night that I had a rough time falling asleep. It seemed as if as soon as I’d fall asleep I would wake up with a start and start tossing and turning once again. Since I couldn’t sleep I turned the TV on and found that every channel was talking about the crisis over in Japan. What I found interesting was that it is always focused on the Reactors and the issues going on with that stressful issue. Don’t get me wrong this is a serious concern, but I haven’t heard anything about the poor people that were effected by the earthquake and the tsunami, except for maybe a blurb or two once in a while how aid is finally coming to Japan by ways of bottles of water and rice.

I just heard that the Black Eyed Peas were just over in Japan, filming a new video and had left just a few days before this crisis hit. I can imagine how people were over there right before all this happened and that they are all thanking their lucky stars that they got out just in the nick of time.

There is a lot more I could talk about what is going on over there, but since I didn’t get much sleep last night I’m pooped and heading for bed in hopes of getting a decent night’s sleep tonight. Good night and God Bless.

I’m so bummed out, my Ceiling Fan that I have in my master bedroom has died on me. I have to have a fan going while I sleep or I don’t get a good night’s sleep at all. Thank God that I had a box fan down in the basement that I managed to drag upstairs and put on my dresser for the night, but it just isn’t the same as what my Ceiling Fan did for me.

Looking at Ceiling Fans wasn’t what I expected to have to look for at this point. This really wasn’t in my budget at this point and time, but what I can do. I have to have sleep!  I have heard that Hansen Wholesale Ceiling Fans are a good bargain and that they have some nice energy efficient models that are over 300% more efficient than other models, I like the sound of that.

I really like that Hansen Wholesale has a ceiling fan blog. It was interesting to read. More companies are placing blogs on their web sites, they do serve a purpose and I expect more and more websites will be utilizing them.

Check out this way cool looking Minka Aire Artemis XL5 in Distressed Koa. I have never seen one like this before and look forward to seeing how it looks in my master bedroom as well as making it easier to get a good night’s sleep.

I have enjoyed spending my Friday off of work, getting some things around the house done and quite honestly a good amount of time just chilling and spending time on my laptop, while eating up all the left-overs from the past couple of meals. I hate throwing food away, I can be a real stinker about wasting food. I’m kind of OCD in that way. But then we all have our own little unique oddities, needs and wants in this life time.

So while doing some idle web surfing I ran across some Washburn Guitars at music123 that they are slashing prices left and right at. I’m guessing they are still trying to clear the shelves of last year’s merchandise to make room for the new bigger and better stuff that we all just can’t seem to live without! This is a perfect time to get your taxes back if you want to find great discounts on many online businesses that are bending over backwards to keep their online shoppers happy.

I was thinking about it the other day that I did not buy one single Christmas present that I didn’t get online. Even the things that I had picked up throughout the year, it was all done via the Internet. Imagine that!

I’ve heard much about the Walden University’s online degree programs that are helping so many people get their degrees which ultimately enables them to make the “big” bucks. In these past few darken years of being stuck right smack dab in a major Depression the “big” bucks is what we are all striving for. In order to learn about Walden I spent some time checking them out online, I found at WaldenU.edu that they have a very intensive website that took some time for me to absorb. You gotta remember, I just barely made it out of High School. College was never really in the picture for me, back in those days. All my mother wanted me to do was to become a secretary and marry the rich boss, she never really got over the fact that I ended up in the food and beverage industry, a bar wench.

Anyway, I’m thinking of getting into the Social Services field since I have a good heart and know how to talk and deal with people. I think that I am a compassionate human being that enjoys assisting people in any way that I can, been known to literally give the shirt off of my back to some one that needs it more than I do. Anyone that is dealing with people in need most definitely require a HUGE dose of compassion. Unfortunately what I have found from personal experience and from thousands of horror stories that I have heard from friends, family and my bar customers, is that the majority of these “professionals” are seriously lacking any type of compassion along with a lot of other qualifications that I think are necessary for this type of career. I think anyone that chooses a career (any career really) should enjoy it to a certain extent and not in it just for the money.

I like to think that I help a lot of people while tending the bar, but the tip jar is rarely flowing over from them all. Knowing that I could be doing the same thing and was guaranteed to go home on payday with a sum that would not only pay the rent on a house of my own as well as the utilities, insurance premiums, taxes, and keep gas, oil and decent tires on the car, well it would be awesome. But at the end of the day if I look in the mirror and like what I see because of what I have done for somebody that day that really effected their lives that day well that is just be the ultimate high.

I’m glad to know that people all over the world are doing wonderful things in a huge effort to save our Mother Earth. Being “green” is certainly the way to be these days and rightfully so, says I. I have always done all that I can possibly do to recycle at home and at work. When I worked for a major insurance company I started and coordinated a recycling program that I hope is still be continued today even though I haven’t worked there for over a decade. It gave me something to sink my teeth into and it was a positive energy that I put to good use and was proud of the way it all turned out.

I’m now learning about e-waste recycling, which I am beginning to think is very interesting. Veolia Environmental Services, a waste management and industrial services which is located in Australia and their web site, Veoliaes.com.au, is one that I stumbled on the other night while looking up some information concerning waste management in Astralia.

I’m thinking on suggesting that the company that I work for now look into a program for their e-waste recycling items that are currently just getting tossed into the trash, thus landing in our precious land fills. I think I’m up for the challenge, it worked well with the last office, years back, so it only makes sense to try again.
