So many times in life, I feel as if things are out of my control. And sometimes, they are. Truth be known, probably more than not. But if I know one thing, and one thing only, my friends are my choice and they are the one of the best gifts I will ever receive.

I found an old friend a couple of weeks ago, or she found me...the Beckster. Doesn't matter, I had looked for her before and not found her. It's been so cool to re-connect and see the parallels in our lives. She was my best friend from eighth grade until my husband and I left for Florida, with $500.00, to start a new life...with $500 dollars. Yeah, we were that stupid. We ended up living in a tent on the beach in Panama City, but that's another story. After that, go figure, Becky and I somehow lost touch and now, we're emailing and she's sending me links to the coolest music I've heard in a while...Nathan Lee. He rocks and so does she. We loved Carol Burnett, Grease (the movie, not, um, grease), Nike tennis shoes and Levi's jeans, among other things. She had a horrible dog named Dusty that humped everything in sight and a little sister that we tortured. Literally, we tortured her. So much so, that in this day and age, we would be put on trial and viewed as terrorists. I'm not proud of it, just saying. Waterboarding has nothing on us.

Here's to old friends...and torturing younger siblings.

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

I just joined this good site. Loads of individuals have added so many good things here. I would also like to add up some thing for this community. I would like to share some [url=]quick weight loss tips[/url]. If you need to know how to lose 10 pounds in a calendar week, you are believably not looking for a common diet and workout plan. You can lose weight with a common diet and work out plan, Still this involves a lot of time doing intense cardio drills and binding to a strict diet. Here I will draft the right steps that I took to lose 10 pounds in just a calendar week.

1. Stay away from all fried foods for the week
2. Drink In an 8oz glass of Citrus paradisi with breakfast each day. (this accelerates up your metabolism)
3. Eat reasonable portions (stop taking when you are full)
4. Rather than taking 3 big a meals a day, consume 5-6 small meals to keep your metabolism up and keep your body burning fat.
5. Aviod your habbit of eating after 9 P.M.. Calories do not burn, when you eat so late.
6. Proper sleep is necessary everyday.. Not having adequate rest causes been verified to be a ranking factor to the body storing excess fat.
7. Use a body/colon cleanse for the 7 days. This will get rid of excess fat stored around the tummy area as well as cleanse your body of harmfull pollutants that makes you store fat and feel tired. Flush away excess pounds around the stomach area that otherwise would be hard to lose.
8. I reccomend you using Acai Berry Diet Pills. This one is proven to work, and you can get a free trial.
9. For those people who desire to burn fat quickly, avoid intoxicant.
