I got no internet yet. I’m waiting. I’m posting this from my friend’s house in a snowstorm. I have to work 7 days a week but sometimes I can go out for a few hours! GREAT!!!
You see I told the old lady (she’s 20 years older than me, so she’s old – I’m not :) ) and I told her relatives during the interview that internet is very important to me. And I will pay for it. But they were very slow with helping me to get connected. They probably thought there is no rush, why can be so important for an average older woman, housekeeper, to get internet? They don’t know that I’m not average. I never was and I am not planning to be an average never :) How could I explain to those people that I am not only housekeeper but also wordpress queen of inspiration on the mission to save some lives. :) And that my blog and internet connections means more to me than anything else. And this always waiting got on my nerves so on 25 February I told the old lady “it looks to me that I can’t get internet connection here so I will have to go somewhere else” and I wasn’t bluffing. DON’T GO DON’T GO, I NEED YOU she said with the tears in her eyes. So I said I want to stay here with you, I really like it here and you are nice lady but as I told your family two weeks ago internet is very important to me. And I need some help with that. So she called her nephew and he called me back two hours later and said on March 5, someone will come to the house and install the internet for you. It will cost $218 for installation and $19 a month. So I said that’s fine with me, THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
So this is how is goes sometimes, you have to slam your shoe on the table to get some attention. :) Anyway, I hate to be ignored. So now I have to wait 4 more days and I can start blogging again. Read some blogs, send some likes and smiley faces to the cyberspace.
Thank you all for your patience, God bless you all.
To tell you the truth, I’m getting tired of cooking and eating those healthy soups. And on the top of it I’m so busy lately that I don’t even have the time to cook anymore. So I was searching frantically for other, easier way to get my healthy nutrients. And I found it! —ENSURE – NUTRITION SHAKE – TO HELP GET STRONG ON THE INSIDE – COMPLETE, BALANCED NUTRITION – # 1 DOCTOR RECOMENDED BRAND – 8 FL. OZ – VANILLA OR THE OTHER FLAVORS. Great! This shake has lot more good stuff in it, than my soup. And how very convenient! And honestly, I like the taste of it. Of course, I have to eat some food beside this, but one or two shakes on a busy day will keep me going. I have to stay in shape, just for the case if “MR. UGLY” (cancer) will decide to invite me some day to some Arm Wrestling Match……. or something…… You never know. This Monster is very sneaky.
My friend told me: “You are going to get fat drinking this stuff”. So I told her: “I’m going to worry about this WHEN or IF I get fat”.
And my neighbor said: “How do you know if this stuff is doing you any good?” And I told him: “Hey, I’m alive, no?”
And my other friend told me: “You look good, you don’t need this stuff”. And I told him: “I look good, because I’m drinking this stuff”.
Some people are so very skeptical……. Try it for yourself. Maybe you can skip one not so very healthy meal a day and enjoy something “good for you and easy”. Cheers!
Knowing cancer symptoms is very important,becase early detection saves lives.
According to Webster’s Dictionary: symptom – in medicine, means any condition accompanying or resulting from a disease and serving as an aid in diagnosis; a perceptible change in the body or its functions which indicates disease.
Years ago I didin’t pay to much attention to cancer symtoms. I was young, healthy. But I learn my leson and I know now how important is to listen to my body and investigate what my body is telling me.
Here are the basic symptoms of the basic cancers:
– Bladder cancer – pain in abdomen, blood in urine.
-Bone cancer – pain, swelling, fractures, weight loss, nausea, weakness.
– Brain cancer – headaches, dizzines, vision and memory problems, fatigue, weight loss, nausea.

Learn more. Do your own research. But always think positive, eat healthy. Reduce your cancer risk.
I want to tell you how I’m dealing with symptoms:
– Day one – I have a headache,
– Day two – I have a lover back pain,
– Day three – My headache is gone. I have a pain in my left arm.
– Day four – I’m feeling very, very tired.
– Day five – I’m feeling fine today. All pain is gone.
DIAGNOSIS: I’M GETTING OLD……………
Here is a great quote by M. L. King Jr.
” If you can’t fly, than run, if you can’t run, than walk, if you can’t walk, than crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward”.
Here is my version:
” If you can’t run, than walk, if you can’t walk, than crawl, if you can’t crawl, than close your eyes and fly… ” :) .
And here is one more from “Anne of Green Gables.”
” Don’t you ever imagine things differently than what they are? Oh, Marilla, how much you miss.”
I Am a dreamer. I like to imagine. I can be even a Princess if I want to be… :) !
Even A. Einstein said:
” Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
[ …And even that what never can be… THE IMPOSSIBLE. ]
I think, that life is more beautiful if you can imagine…
Thank you for visiting.
Wishing you all good Health and Happiness.
God Bless you all.
Yesterday I posted my page “On Writing”, telling you all how good I’m on making long story short and short story even shorter.
Today I have one more for you:
– A Friend asked me today: “Anna, are you working on your next book?”
– I said: “I have it”.
– A Friend: “You have it?”
– I said: “I keep surviving”.
– A Friend: “Is this a title of you new book?’
– I said: “No. This is the book”. :) ! :) ! :) !
So here it is, the shortest book…. I keep surviving. THE END.
Thank you all for reading.
God Bless you all.
I think that some books are great, but to long.
100 years ago people have more time to read. There was no TV, Computer or Smart Phone…
Today we don’t have to much time for reading. There is to much going on…
Well, I’m not any authority on writing but only a “Rookie Writer” – and I think, that SHORTER IS BETTER. And this is only my view on writing.
Personally I don’t read Blog Posts with more than 500 words. Well, sometimes I give “Like” because I like the beginning or pictures.
And I don’t read or buy books with more than 300 pages. Maybe only “short stories” or something extremely interesting.
I just don’t have a time.
Myself – I can not write long paragraphs, because of my poor English. :) !!!
And I’m very good on “short writing”. I can make even very short story shorter.
Let’s take Latin phrase: “VENI, VIDI, VICI”.
Julius Cesar wrote to describe shortly his victory in his short war.
It means: “I CAME, I SAW, I CONQUERED”.
How clever. I love it!
But I will make it shorter: “I CAME, I CONQUERED”. I will skip “I SAW”, Because we know he wasn’t blind, so he saw… :) !
And than, to conquer, he has to came there… So I will skip: “I CAME”.
And we have this all nice and short: “I CONQUERED”. In Latin: “VICI”. :) , :) , :) !!!
Anyway, if you are not Hemingway, keep it short. :) !!!
God Bless you all.
<3, Health and Happiness for all Mothers around the World!
God Bless you all!
Yeah, I know… Sometimes is impossible to be happy, when everything goes wrong…
But hey, nothing lasts for ever, storms go away…
But sometimes we are not happy even if we don’t have any reason to be unhappy.
Leo Tolstoy, great Russian writer got this right:
-If you want to be happy, be.-
Well, yeah it is all up to us if we want to be happy or not.
And this what Tina Allen said about happiness:
-Embrace the day like it’s a gift from a loving God above, pray like there’s an enemy at work to steal its beauty from your eyes.-
I found this part of script long time ago, I don’t know who wrote, I want to share with you:
…Hugi will not speak of Vietnam – except to say, that he came back wondering why any man could not be happy as long as he had enough to eat, a roof over his head, and no one shooting at him…
Wishing you all Good Health and Happiness!
God Bless you all.
So, tomorrow, April 4 is my Birthday again!
Hooray! I made it!
So I am over 50 years old, kinda close to 70… :) !
And I Am very happy.
I can say, that I have lived all those 365 days, not only existed.
I have accomplish more in those 365 days, than in any decade of my life.
Even I am slower now, but I’m trying to accomplish something every day.
I was able to write and publish my book: “About by Oneanna65″. And my book has some great reviews on Amazon. This makes me extremely happy.
And I have a great plan for the next 365 days of my life:
1. Keep blogging. :) .
2. Promote my Book.
3. Find the way how I can sell my Book….
This will keep me busy every day of my next Birthday Year.
And as I mentioned before, I only feel old one day a year. Only on my Birthday. Next day I’m going to be younger, because I Am going to be busy living my life, not thinking how old I Am.
Anyway, age is a matter of perspective. Because for the 20 years old person – I Am old. But for someone who is 95 – I Am young. :) !
So, if you are over 50 years old, always remember:
YOU ARE NEVER TO OLD TO BE YOUNG.
Wishing you all many Happy, Healthy Birthdays!
<3 to all.
I have to share this quote with you all:
“You don’t like me? That’s fine. I don’t wake up every morning to impress you. There is only one God, and it ain’t you.
– Yours truly – Me -”
I don’t know who posted this, but thank you – whoever you are.
I love it!!!
Long time ago I realized, that only few people are gone like me. You know, I’m not easy or charming person. :) !
But hey, do you think that everybody likes Madonna? = I don’t think so!
Or Tom Cruise? – No way! I don’t like him. He is not my type. :) ! :) ! :) !
So don’t worry that some don’t like you.
God <3 you. He created you the way he wanted. You are great.
So <3 the people who <3 you and forget about the ones who don't.
God Bless you all.
