If we could go back in time

If we could go back in time to some point where we had made a critical decision that changed the path of our life. If we could just go back and change the decision we made so we could take  a different life path

Ideally, we could pick a point in time where we feel we may have made a wrong decision and if go back to a place in time where we could change that decision. That, in fact, could be a GAME CHANGER.

The end of the handshake, as we know it

Types of greetings around the world

Two businesswomen in suits shaking hands and smiling.

It has been a long time coming, but it appears we are near to the end of the handshake, as we know it.

One of the main factors  that seems to have brought about the demise of the handshake, as we know it,  may be all the bugs and viruses that have been going around recently. The handshake is being perceived as a medium that can spread germs

Which greeting is the cleanest?

Which greeting is the cleanest?

The next obvious step is the  fist bump, but the question is, if someone extends their hand to you for a handshake, do you respond with a fist bump, just to avoid some nasty germs?

 I think that the fist bump, will gradually catch on, even with  mainstream business circles. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that if you will get the job if you fist bump someone who is extending their hand to you expecting a handshake.

                                                                                                           “Impossible Dream”
To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
And to run where
the brave dare not go
To right the unrightable wrong
And to love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star
This is my quest
To follow that star
No matter how hopeless
No matter how far
To fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march,
march into hell
For that heavenly cause
And I know
If I’ll only be true
To this glorious quest
That my heart
Will lie peaceful and calm
When I’m laid to my rest
And the world will be
better for this
That one man, scorned
and covered with scars,
Still strove with his last
ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable,
the unreachable,
The unreachable star
And I’ll always dream
The impossible dream
Yes, and I’ll reach
The unreachable star
To Dream the Impossible Dream-

To Dream the Impossible Dream-

                                                                                Luther Vandross – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Vandross suffered from diabetes and hypertension, both of which may have been brought on by family genetics as well as lifestyle and nutrition.

Vandross died on July 1, 2005 at JFK Medical Center in Edison, New Jersey at the age of 54. His apparent cause of death was a heart attack.

After two days of viewing at the Frank E. Campbell Funeral Chapel, his funeral was held at Riverside Church in New York City on July 8, 2005. Vandross is interred at George Washington Memorial Park in Paramus, New Jersey.

Vandross never married, had no children, and his three older siblings died before him. He was survived by his mother, Mary Ida, who died in 2008. Vandross’ estate left an undisclosed major gift to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

The raccoons are  making their nightly rounds, eating cat food biscuits in the back patio.  I wish I could take a photo  of  them in real time but they only come by at night in an area that is not well lit.  By the time I get my camera out they would be gone.

There is the mother raccoon and her two kits are usually not far behind. I often see the mother raccoon in the front yard, not far from my door, and when she sees me she stands in an upright position her two hind legs.
