Yes, stress is a part of life. It's all how we handle it. Sometimes I feel like I lose my mind and other times I just try to meditate the stress away. For me, the best way to handle stress is to blow off some steam, meditate and then handle the situation. Now I would not do this in case there was an emergency...I would act right away in an emergency. But when stress feels like it's eating you alive just breathe. Do something to get your mind off it. I like to watch stuff that makes me laugh. When I'm stressed, I want to surround myself with comedy and funny people.
2009 has been an odd year. It seemed every 3 weeks a celebrity died. I also lost two family members this year. Sorry for such a morbid post but 2009 was an odd year. Gas prices started out low now they are high again, the economy is still in bad shape and all I hear on the radio and TV is doom and gloom
Imperial Avenue Cleveland Murders I was looking up Imperial Avenue in Cleveland on Google Maps due to the overwhelming news about the bodies being discovered on that street. When I did a Google street view of the house on Imperial Avenue, I saw this picture. It's some person flipping off the Google Car that took the picture. You can check it out yourself here. Or just click the picture to enlarge it.
A month ago, I was smoking my usual brand of cigarettes and I noticed a funny taste. I also noticed that the cigarrette kept going out by itself. A week later, I got an email from a friend on Facebook. She said that FSC above the barcode on a pack of cigarettes meant that they were Fire Safe Cigarettes.
Tracking your child with a GPS. You turn your back for one second at the mall, and poof... you child isn't there. You call out there name only to find that they are in the next aisle looking at toys or hiding from you. This is the case most of time and as a father of a 7 year old, it scares me sometimes when he plays outside.
