As I start my day with my cup in hand,

I feel totally blessed to live in this land.

The freedom to become what we dream of to be.

The right and the honor to maintain our dignity.

Work and stay focused on what is your plan.

Always remain positive with a smile close at hand!

Digital footprins with EVERIPEDIA*

I am learning a bit about one’s digital footprints. I never even heard of this before I started doing computer classes. Digital footprints of a person means:

“There are two main classifications for digital footprints: passive and active. A passive digital footprint is created when data is collected without the owner knowing, whereas active digital footprints are created when personal data is released deliberately by a user for the purpose of sharing information about oneself by means of websites or social media.[1]”

Well, I found a site that started using and would like to share it with you all. I wrote a little something for it. Enjoy and have fun stepping out! Introducing EVERIPEDIA

Everyone’s Encyclopedia!

Very good choice for centralizing and sorting people’s digital footprints.

Everyone’s information will be easily accessible for you.

Readily allows users to up and downvote the links associated with people’s pages and only the interesting ones will prevail!

Internet searches you make with EVERIPEDIA
will change the way you do your research and fact finding.

People you follow on facebook and twitter will have a different perceptive to you. Imagine what you will find out about them!

Enjoy reading all of the interesting facts you will have access to!

Do your research. Get started!

Intelligent choices for you to make when you are searching for information on a certain subject you are interested in.

All you have to do to use LINKSEARCH  and take the link to that person’s profile or that news article you are reading, and then PASTE it on the search bar. This will bring up for you all of the remaining part of their footprint.

I hope you all have as much fun as I do on EVERIPEDIA
. It sure makes doing homework easier!

Giving Up………..

I have said my peace
I have made my attempts
I feel confident you will survive
The decisions in life are now yours.

Believe in Yourself;

Your choices are many

Your decisions should be sound

Your abilities in place

Your determination in the lead

Stay focused on the present

Do not flash back to long ago

The present is what you have

The next step is yours

When you are alive and well

Your choices are endless

Put thought and consideration of others

Into the mix of your journey

May all of the endless possibilities

bring you growth in your persona.

Just Smiling…..

Maya Angelou said this:
‘I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.’

‘I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.’

‘I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life.’

‘I’ve learned that making a ‘living’ is not the same thing as ‘making a life..’

‘I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.’

‘I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw some things back…’

‘I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.’

‘I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one.’

‘I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back…’

‘I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn…’

‘I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.’

Wisdom from Maxine*

As we progress into 2013, I want to thank you all for your educational e-mails over the past year.

I am totally screwed up now and have little chance of recovery.

I can no longer open a bathroom door without using a paper towel,

nor let the waitress put lemon slices in my ice water without worrying

about the bacteria on the lemon peel.

I can’t sit down on a hotel bedspread because I can only imagine

what has happened on it since it was last washed.

I have trouble shaking hands with someone who has been driving

because the number one pastime while driving alone is picking one’s nose.

Eating a little snack sends me on a guilt trip because I can only

imagine how many gallons of trans fats I have consumed over the years.

I can’t touch any woman’s handbag for fear she has placed it on

the floor of a public toilet.

I must send my special thanks for the email about rat poo

in the glue on envelopes because I now have to use a wet sponge with

every envelope that needs sealing.

ALSO, now I have to scrub the top of every can I open for the same reason.

I can’t have a drink in a bar because I fear I’ll wake up in a bathtub

full of ice with my kidneys gone.

I can’t eat at KFC because their chickens are actually horrible mutant

freaks with no eyes, feet or feathers.

I can’t use cancer-causing deodorants even though I smell like a

water buffalo on a hot day.

Thanks to you I have learned that my prayers only get answered

if I forward an e-mail to seven of my friends and make a wish within five minutes.

Because of your concern , I no longer drink Coca Cola because

it can remove toilet stains.

I no longer buy fuel without taking someone along to watch the car,

so a serial killer doesn’t crawl in my back seat when I’m filling up.

I no longer use Cling Wrap in the microwave because it causes

seven different types of cancer.

And thanks for letting me know I can’t boil a cup of water

in the microwave anymore because it will blow up in my face, disfiguring

me for life.

I no longer go to the cinema because I could be pricked with a

needle infected with AIDS when I sit down.

I no longer go to shopping centers because someone will drug

me with a perfume sample and rob me..

And I no longer answer the phone because someone will ask

me to dial a number for which I will get a huge phone bill with calls to

Jamaica , Uganda , Singapore and Uzbekistan ..

Thanks to you I can’t use anyone’s toilet but mine because a

big black snake could be lurking under the seat and cause me instant

death when it bites my butt.

And thanks to your great advice I can’t ever pick up a

dime coin dropped in the car park because it was probably placed

there by a sex molester waiting to grab me as I bend over.

I can’t do any gardening because I’m afraid I’ll get bitten by the

Violin Spider and my hand will fall off.

If you don’t send this e-mail to at least 144,000 people in

the next 70 minutes, a large dove with diarrhea will land

on your head at 5:00 p.m. tomorrow afternoon, and the

fleas from 120 camels will infest your back, causing you

to grow a hairy hump. I know this will occur because it

actually happened to a friend of my next door neighbors

ex mother-in-law’s second husband’s cousin’s best friend’s


Oh, and by the way…

A German scientist from Argentina , after a lengthy study,

has discovered that people with insufficient brain activity

read their e-mails with their hand on the mouse

Don’t bother taking it off now, it’s too late.

P. S. I now keep my toothbrush in the living room, because

I was told by e-mail that water splashes over 6 ft. out of the toilet..

Have fun. Live. Laugh. Love.

Smile often,

Luisa Doraz

Man, I do not know about this! This city gives me the creeps! I mean look at all these people! Look at these unimpressive stores! How do people live here without going crazy?

I guess I had better come up with a plan. I have to make it a GREAT one. I do not want a boring schedule. I can think of a few things. Let’s see, I will get new friends by tonight!

That’s dumb! I do not even know where to go! I guess I can ask someone. Maybe I will go to get a coffee and see what happens! Good idea!

I see a place, the Manhatten Corner. Sounds like a good place. It looks really busy, good sign. Lots of cute guys in here. I see a blond, blue eyed guy I am going to go talk to!

He catches my eye… “Hi” he says…
I flash him a broad smile. Everyone says I have a smile to die for!
“Would you like to sit down?” He offers me a chair.
Is this where I say something cool and interesting?

“So, are you new in town?” he finally offers. I shrug my shoulders sheepishly, “Is it that obvious?” I ask? He gives me the once over before replying, “You don’t look like the average girl from around these parts.”

Just what do girls look like from around these parts I ask him a little flirtatiously? I’m worried about my little friend in my purse. She may be thirsty from all the travel. Just as this cute guy sits down, my purse starts whimpering.

Peeking out of her purse is the cutest little puppy, her name is Zena. He takes one look at her and falls instantly in Love. Zena begins to paw at him. He offers up the idea to find a small bowl to fill with water. She must be thirsty, as they’ve been sitting there for awhile.

I began to think that things were looking up for me. I mean, here is a guy who “likes me and my dog!” We took care of Zena and then just kept looking at one another. Was this the start of my new life? I could just see me married to this man, but I did not even know his name!

I thanked him for helping me take care of Zena and our eyes locked onto one another. I flirtatiously asked “so what’s your name?” His eyes suddenly opened wide and his cheeks began to turn a pale shade of red. He sat back in his chair and began to nervously fiddle with the napkin on the table. I could tell that this simple question has made him uncomfortable, but why?

Now I know why this guy looked the way he looked! It was that “bad” guy I saw on “American’s Most Wanted!!!” Now what do I do? My life was just starting to look “brighter,” and then THIS! Should I just pretend I do not know?

Or should I keep acting like I was? My heart was thumping hard in my chest and Zena needed to go outside. I’m not about to leave this place with this guy. Suddenly, there’s a hand on my shoulder and I jumped out of my skin. As I slowly turn my head,

a friend from the past caught my eye. Relief, I felt, to my surprise came the hard cold object in my side. My whole life started to pass through my mind when,

my high school classmate said, “What brings you to New York, Chavela?” I was relieved, it was someone I used to be in the band with. I said, ” Hello, Eva, I got a new job as a model for Victoria’s Secret!”” Do you live here, too,?” I asked. She replied she was searching for someone who needed a roommate. I smiled at that!

Of course, I immediately asked her to come take a look at my place and see if she were interested. She was delighted to hear this offer! We left the coffee shop with an excited Zena, and were both looking to a brighter future in our new home, Manhattan!!

THE END………….
