You Need a Puppy!/?

Two puppies were found that need homes, so if you or anyone you know is in the market for a puppy please let me know! They are siblings named Maddie and Moose (their other sibling has already been adopted).

Moose is a little boy who is very playful and full of energy. He's all personality and show's it off with all his toys. He’s smaller than his sister but just as plump! He minds very well considering how young he is, and is almost house trained and crate trained.
Maddie is a sweet little girl who is also playful but calmer than her brother. She is also almost house trained and crate trained. She is larger than Moose but probably won't be more than 45 lbs.

Both LOVE people which is amazing considering that they came from the woods. Their dad is a German Sheppard and mom is a brindle mix.

Help find Maddie and Moose a home today, forward this link to all your friends... If you are interested please comment or email me your phone number, rachwoodward@gmail.com. :)

Yay for Taylor Swift but West Ruins her Moment - Continued

While I am glad West apoligized I still think he is a bully and has deserved the "jerk" label from not only the current situation he finds himself in but past PUBLIC rants as well! I’m glad he’s getting such bad press!
See Obama's thoughts (supposed to be off the record) captured here.

Side thoughts… not that the Dixie Chicks situation was exactly the same but I think had they been a little remorseful I would be able to stand the sight of them and be able to listen to their music when it comes on the radio! But, I would still never purchase anything touching them! However, since they were such total SKANKS!! I am unable to see a picture of them without getting a little red faced mad and whenever I hear them on the radio I change it automatically and won’t listen to that station again for a good few months.

Now that I’ve gotten my ranting out for the afternoon, I need to get my blood pressure back down and not think about how much money I spent on Dixie Chicks concert tickets and cds before their 2003 downfall!

Whew! :)

My Tree :(

My favorite tree at Sawgrass was killed during a storm at the begining of the summer. :(

Guess we'll have to find another place to spread my ashes one day!


Here is a video I've posted before with my tree in all it's glory at the end! :)

Yay for Taylor Swift but West Ruins her Moment

Taylor Swift wins Best Female Video at the VMA's last night!!


After getting a short sentence out Kanye West takes the mic from Taylor declaring "...Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time..."


See video of the stunned Taylor Swift as the jerk takes over her moment!



While Beyoncé did win Video of the Year she gave Taylor her moment back! So classy! See video.


... watch out Taylor might just write a song about this!

Another Reason To Eat Sushi!

Helpful ways to boost your memory (cnn.com)

Use chopsticks: "Studies show that engaging the concentrated areas of nerve cells in your fingertips directly stimulates your brain," says Maoshing Ni, Ph.D., author of "Second Spring: Dr. Mao's Hundreds of Natural Secrets for Women to Revitalize and Regenerate at Any Age." Truth is, any fingertip activity--using chopsticks, knitting, or even rolling a pen or pencil between your fingers--also helps your brain by boosting your circulation. And good circulation helps eliminate waste products that can prevent nutrients from reaching your brain.

Eating sushi is good for the brain!! :)
Thanks to Jessie Dean for forwarding me this info!

Meet the Puppies as FRIENDS Characters

So, I didn't sleep very well last night and while I played with the puppies I decided to name them all! Then I was trying to figure out how to tell people about their personalities b/c they are so different! The answer came to me early this morning, FRIENDS!!
-
Lyla is most like Joey! Lovable always hungry and always wanting others food, very playful and loves to be around people... a great friend!
Chandler: [sniffs] This sandwich does smell good...
Joey: Did I tell you to smell my sandwich?
Chandler: I can't smell your sandwich?
Joey: No! Half of the taste is in the smell! You're sucking up all the taste units!
Chandler: Okay, I'll give them back [exhales].


Joey: I thought it'd be great, you know? have some time alone with my thoughts... turns out, I don't have as many thoughts as you'd think.

Joey: Nice try. See the Netherlands is this make-believe place where Peter Pan and Tinker Bell come from.

Ross: Hypothetically speaking...
Joey: Wait. You lost me.

Joey: You're so far past the line, you can't even see the line. The line is a dot to you."
-
Ginger is the most like Rachel. She is pretty, has a beauty mark on her tongue, has a short attention span, looks like she would work in fashion and if she could talk she would sound like Rachel! Loyal.
Rachel: If she wanted to be more like me, why couldn't she just copy my hairstyle or something?"

Joey: You're gonna cook something?
Rachel: Hey, I cook!
Chandler: Offering people gum is not cooking.

Ross: And that's the story of the dreidel. Now, some people trace the Christmas tree back to the Egyptians, who used to bring green palm branches into their huts on the shortest day of the year, symbolizing life's triumph over death. And that was, like, four thousand years ago.
Rachel: So, pretty much around the same time that you started telling this story.

Joey: The question, Rachel, is this: does he like you? Otherwise, it's just a moo point.
Rachel:Uh, Joe — a moo point?
Joey: You know, like a cow's opinion. It doesn't matter. It's moo.
Rachel: Have I been living with him too long, or did all that just make sense?

Rachel: Monica, we need more candy.
Monica: What? There's only been like 4 kids!
Rachel: Yeah I know, but one of them just said that she loved me so I just gave her everything.
-

Rascal is the only boy left and he is the most like Monica! He is bossy, competitive, and looks at all the other dogs like they are on his turf! Protector!
Monica: Man, I would be great in a war! I really think I'd make a fantastic military leader. I mean, I know I'd make general before any of you guys.
Chandler: Before or after you were shot by your own troops?

Monica: You can't fire me. I make your decisions and I say, "I'm not fired." Ha.

Monica: [indicating each of the group in succession] Fine! Judge all you want to, but: married a lesbian (at Ross), left a man at the altar (at Rachel), fell in love with a gay ice dancer (at Phoebe), threw a girl’s wooden leg in a fire (at Joey), livin’ in a box (at Chandler)!

Rachel: Phoebe, you were right. I should've never gone to London, and from now on you make all of my decisions for me.
Phoebe: Oh, no. I did that for someone once. I'm not comfortable having that kind of power and control over someone's life.
Monica: I'll do it!
-
Daisey is the most like Phoebe! She is the life of the party, doesn't like to miss anything, and she would be a coffee shop singer in another life! Quirky!
Phoebe : [Right after playing a song in the coffee shop ] If you want to receive e-mails about my upcoming shows, then please give me money so I can buy a computer.

Phoebe: There was a crooked man, who had a crooked smile, who lived in a shoe, for a... while...

Phoebe: I may play the fool at times but I'm a little more than just a pretty blonde girl with an a** that won't quit.

Phoebe: [singing] Smelly cat, smelly cat, what are they feeding you? Smelly cat, smelly cat, it's not your fault. They won't take you to the vet, you're obviously not their favorite pet. You may not be a bed of roses, and you're no friend to those with noses.

Phoebe: Before I start, I just wanna say that I have a cold, so if I sneeze in the middle of a song, it's not on purpose. Oh, except the last verse of "Pepper people."

Phoebe: I just found a selfless good deed; I went to the park and let a bee sting me.
Joey: How is that a good deed?
Phoebe: Because now the bee gets to look tough in front of his bee friends. The bee is happy and I am not.
Joey: Now you know the bee probably died when he stung you?
Phoebe: ***mit!
-
Sissy is so Ross! She seems to pout when you don't pay attention to her, looks a little like she is defensive and she is very playful but has to be in the mood to play. Sweet!
Ross: First divorce: wife's hidden sexuality, not my fault. Second divorce: said the wrong name at the altar, kind of my fault. Third divorce: they shouldn't let you get married when you're that drunk and have stuff drawn all over your face, Nevada's fault.
Ross: I grew up in a house with Monica, okay. If you didn't eat fast, you didn't eat.

Ross: I would, but I bruise like a peach.

Ross: I'm just going to wander around in the rain.
Rachel: Uhh... it's not raining.
Ross: I can't catch a break!

-
Cricket is most like Chandler! She is always picking on the other dogs, so funny to watch, and doesn't want anyone to forget she is there! If she could talk I think she would be super sarcastic all the time! Charismatic!
Chandler: I'm not so good with the advice... Can I interest you in a sarcastic comment?
Chandler: I can handle this. "Handle" is my middle name. Actually, "handle" is the middle of my first name.

Chandler: Well, if I were a guy...[Everyone stares at him.]Chandler: Wait, did I just say "If I were a guy"?

Monica: Losers walk.
Ross: Yeah? Losers talk.
Chandler: No, no, no. Actually, losers rhyme.

Rachel: Guess what?
Chandler: The fifth dentist finally caved and now they ALL recommend Trident?
-
Y'all are hearing the Friends theme song now, right?
So no one told you life was gonna be this way(clap clap clap clap)
Your job's a joke, you're broke, your love life's D.O.A.
It's like you're always stuck in second gear
When it hasn't been your day, your week, your month, or even your year
But
I'll be there for you (when the rain starts to pour)
I'll be there for you (like I've been there before)
I'll be there for you (because you're there for me too)"
-
Please let me know if you are interested in adopting Lyla, Ginger, Rascal, Daisey, Sissy or Cricket, they are fabulous puppies! Tell your friends! :)
