Fog

I don't normally sip this stuff called wine but I rather explain what happened to me on my last outing. I went shopping for groceries and didn;t expect to be carrying a bottle of some of this drink. Due to the fact that I had very little to chip into the offer I managed to taste it food traffic behind i'm questioning. I was visiting my friends when I sneaked out and went for a ride in a Porsche sike. I can be sitting here lying to myself if you let me explain because I was lost in Dallas.

I was parked at the bank thinking a spot where I normally never go it reminds me of the old school days. I would use the tram to my class going passed the highway, they've now closed all the toll booths in North Texas. This is wine a drink with a dark flavor to it and fresh although from Africa, the mix took me by suprise. I have a plastic cup on hand, but I couldn't get hold of the person who helped me get it opened. I happened to have been at two different superstores, they had all these bottles of wine. During traffic I recall seeing cars go by I become excited looking at the two door Audi S5, I've got some dollars.

It's almost time for dinner so I get a call telling me to go back home, i'm looking around inside the store asking for a fridge magnet the customer doesn't know what i'm talking about. I had just left the house arriving to google Brooklyn flirting over on visitors guide.

It's was not the wrong kind of drink, it was only during the next visit
I happened to drive by the store again why I forgot what had happened. When I was done tasting I wanted to leave knowing I had to drive back to my previous location. Your not going to drink very much after a full course meal it was during dinner. It's very uncommon to drive up onto someone's garage after midnight but at the store i'm walking around I feel dizzy and want to use the men's room all of a sudden i'm back and barelly able to see the road. A black Jaguar drove past in Texas during this time of night luckily I wasn't arrested.

World Series

Just know and have talked to some few clients on the web where do I begin what should I say sometimes never know. In the meantime I feel like nowdays could be I could be guilty for anything can I claim to earn enough i've say down and watched the presidential news conference. See enough sports to know about Rangers certainly would have tasted success not to just loose themselves and the world series I want to try and explain. Never in history has a team like the rangers taken up baseball into the country, I was here waiting for it to happen unfortunately the opposing team won taking the lead.

Never has the game gone with no Philadelphia Phillies, Tampa Bay Devil Rays, Cleveland Indians, New-York Yankee, Atlanta Braves, Minnesota Twins, and Boston Red Sox. Overall baseball does take you places but, where I seem to be going is back I want to ask you what to think. I just think the halloween celebration went over the top only one person knocked at my door i'm moving around town making stops at the library and finding the rates and timing very demanding. Bad luck happened to me but how bad? I already went to see good luck chuck, lucky slevin, goodnight & goodluck a few good movies but where is the milk? How about shopping where I normally go to for petcare over there is a bookstore with enough time I could be looking at newspapers, there isn't a beach here my nightlife certainly takes me towards the ballpark.

I was worth and i've returned down south somewhat perplexed to see our hometown so sad over the news that they lost it has rained and there are no flash flood warning signs Rangers passed me by the way what about them? i've never been to first base is it somewhere within distance? I want to blame the zoning regulations and fire department but know there is more interest with football, perhaps too busy to notice us. Our hwy is new was just changed and given a new name of Ronald Regan Expressway should someone do something about public transportation? if ever do meet baseball fan supporting those teams I certainly would ask alot of q's the weather condition of some of these places. Moving forward is important how come we didn't start looking to win. Despite loosing the noise level was enourmous I kinda felt ill but again having doubts. I am on location looking at the hospitality at some of these facilities on the opposite side of the medical city. Absolute chaos the news was on and they were speaking to the Mayor and finger pointing to the camera. The following day I heard about voting our state needs changes, the tickets I kept wondering if everyone had viewed the local news channel - seen their plays during the World Series ever before I should have just parked outside the ballpark. At this time no commenting.

Guide to copy-and-paste in Windows Phone 7

If your interested in any of these headlines about the Microsoft phone just leave a comment I asked for and noticed the electronics store no longer selling Sony products such as the boombox. So I started to feel uncomfortable knowing I couldn't trust any other manufacturer. I called Sony before walking there again to ask about their new line of camera's. I spoke to a sales man i'm told to register this product so I don't loose it. I have already sold it, it was a new camera purchased at the store. I hope your going to do your homework before believing in any of these gadget guides. I just regret loosing my camera the remaining thing isn't Sony it's the empty hand. What do you think should Sony USA have created this gadget instead of Microsoft I already noticed the Apple ipad what about letting Sony electronics for a change.

The Bargehouse offered a raw and unpretentious atmosphere where each piece of work - from the amazing Brick Habitats meant to attract critters to your building walls to beautiful "patchwork" locally-produced furniture - came to life

Verizon Wireless will bring a next generation of wireless broadband to 30 "National Football League cities" by the end of this year--but you'll have to wait a little longer to find out just which places it has in mind and what its 4G service will cost, among other details.

I was wondering if coding errors may have something to do with taking down websites? this may interfere with the laws. I recommended to someone awhile ago that if it was okay for them to include a FAQ and Copyright info link on their company website. This is a relative of mine I didn't want to come across racing to conclude my suggestions; so I asked him about it because I was browsing the website and found it open. Since I am not the webmaster I afterwards heard something about it, but it came across in form of a music video so I think the word spread and now everyone's recognized.

Ready to browse the net particularly books about The Matrix sitting here looking at Social Network movie trailer schedule for release on Friday, means that I need to be there it's impossible to tell you exactly how or when i'm supposed to enjoy seeing another flick.

Although I didn't see much of it having already called the a travel agent who used this same professional name, I found it on the verizon yellow pages meanwhile looking to purchase a ticket the facebook page includes details. Walking to the computer I find nothing left to do this is a light movie maybe try and see it entirely. The yellow page seek clients and that is just the same exact title no strings attached.

5 essential tips on how to save and achieve your financial goals

1 – Set important goals
Set goals and draw plans that make the sacrifices worthwhile. Saving is nothing more than that: sacrificing present consumption spoon to enjoy a better future. The stronger your desire, the lower their sacrifice.

2 – Make saving simple
There is a plethora of techniques, tactics and recommendations to save money. Choose the simplest rules and the percentages more comfortable. Think hard before choosing their tactics. Once chosen, break up and take complete control of the situation. Do not adopt any tactic that you do not dominate and restrict the boundaries of those savings you believe you can deliver, albeit with some sacrifice.

3 – Be disciplined
Little early for lunch to save and spend on dinner. By day’s end you will have saved nothing. If you’re willing to reach any financial goal, be aware that need time and discipline. Choose simple rules and parameters that are easy to be together and be faithful to them.

4 – Pay on the first day
Do not expect the end of the month to see how much will be left. The right time to separate the money into savings is when you receive. Whatever the amount or percentage established, separate immediately that part for your buck, as if you had not received that value.

5 – Resist temptations
Do not allow the money saved is wasted. Avoid stirring in reserves to meet consumer impulses. There are three important factors to facilitate the accumulation of wealth: the principal, the interest rate and time. There is no doubt that time is the most important.Do not interrupt investment ahead of time, and be sure to do the amount of resources planned. Learn to add $ 100 a month for twenty years resulting in an amount greater than $ 400.00 together for ten years, or $ 1,000 for five years, considering the same interest rate. And admit it is much easier to separate a little money each month than a large sum near when you will need.

Whole Foods: Don't Eat That, Eat This

They weren't playing around at the spot where I asked for 2 pounds worth of hot chicken, from my last time going to this store to pickup food I had doubts because I had very few dollars and it was a holiday. So after making my selection I had nobody to share the meal with and so I just put it in for storage until it was completely gone.

I was going to need some bread while stepping through that very same situation I happened to pass through that counter recently without saying a word. There are three grocery stores in the town where I live in Whole Foods is one the other side of town, I don't want to become obese I was sitting at the parking lot of my second choice located nearby waiting for my uncle who had been running an errand. I noticed they weren't eating I dunno why but requesting for money and eating a dish doesn't make for the fact that I was the only person wanting to step out of there and run. So the third location I don't normally shop there because the muslim grocers store is also on my list of places to look for food. Whenever i'm around the third location my mother is with me but after ordering 2 pounds worth of food from the other place i'm beginning to think like that is foul.

So before going on a journey recently I parked the car at this same spot and walked in there to order alot of bbq and hot marinated chicken. Afterwards, going to a party and it turns out that I maybe ordered too much. Because it was only three of us sitting in the car. It's just better not assuming that people are going to munch the things made at the store. Sometimes it's snowing your at the "second choice" next to a Mcdonalds whats to eat? ski towards transition.

So you wanna be a Test Kitchen intern.... Meet Joe Moon

Whoever likes eating at their favorite restaurant know that i've been munching alot lately dunno whay maybe it's because my mom's b-day was last month and i've wasn't able to purchase anything. Since last month I went to the movies once and couldn't get around much besides going to my uncle's to drop off some luggage. Before seeing Karate Kid I was at the store grabbing a t-shirt you know and trying to get into the club.

Cheap ticket

Spirit airlines have never been on this airline but after seeing that ceo selling/buying a cheap ticket speak to the media i'm asking myself why I don't travel as much as I should. With innovations such as this new Tesla roadster are consumers going to take the risk of speeding through past the counter to a gas/electric powered automobile? if you've ever been to the port you often have to ask for the rental counter a local airport isn't going to offer you the amenities a large hub provides. What's next for these new inventions and brand names which never existed. You can try finding where your going, nowdays getting from point A to B isn't as simple as you would think. I've been asked to go help take a car for repairs but couldn't find the address because of my decision not to take a map. A map is good but the gps is very expensive. It's the cost that always takes precedent over the service i'm only looking for my destination. How many are out there driving for miles unable to arrive on time? i'm certain that whoever got their travel arrangements taken care of it certainly would never be me. I see the point the ceo is trying to make putting everything into a bundle and offering the viewer a rough estimate, it's just hard to interpret over the counter companies. What do I see it's the competition taking most of the space, citizens need to unite against thses sorts of privileges that nobody bearly knows how to do.

Google: The search party is over

Yes, the company is still growing at rates that would be the envy of the rest of the Fortune 500.

Can Google find its footing in this brave new world?

An Influx of leadership

How is everybody doing i've so far started to keep track of stocks on my homepage, this is risky because bloomberg tv is already doing that you get the idea surf to it check out my biz and begin guessing about the kinda organization i'm offering biz clients.

Right now the amount of ideas is overflowing I noticed the numb brain freeze which was a cause of me getting others to help me. The obvious is they went as fas as repairing this old computer system, i'm no repair man I just doubt if I can do without an Apple computer. Have you been to the store and seen their display? if I could afford it my leadership credentials could help focus. The Kindle is available and I seem to think the small sized biz concept is getting plenty of buzz.

What next for me it's to continue screaming about a webhost, it certainly isn't easier the cost is perhaps never going to get paid for. I just intend to lay low, keep a tab and balance the budget my bank has been recently bought over. This puts leadership behind and focus in front where I see this ending up is really at the office. As a lawyer may get fired but he/she is capable of using language that is far much more better for you instead of you drowning. I do intend to make personal progress I am entitled to complete my learning. I needed to explain to everyone why I believed in seeing the freedom writers movie.

Hello everybody how is your summer going? I will not be able to make an adequate payment to any bank know why, it's because of recession i've just been seeing some of my online contacts and they seem to be very interested with social networking. I regard living online very highly I mean sometimes I march all over the crib wondering who will pvt message me. I'm at the computer desk and there seemed to be some talk about privacy what does it all mean. I supposed people change we just use e-mail; frankly there is nobody I know doing anything wrong everything is explained as self-employed that sounds like a long dry response. This is a personal blog i'm using I normally working PT until the oil spill. When driving along the highway I feel lucky and belive this should be alot more than asking up for notebooks, i'm waiting to speak to someone about work. I viewed the world cup happening in South Africa ask anyone the Japanese lost. Otherwise I walked outside soon before it was over I missed the opening ceremony performances. I had to go repair my personal computer which was recently destroyed. I'm unable to listen to the radio know what I mean. I bought a nice t-shirt afterwards walking to the movies alone; but seriously need to shop here. I have to catch up with the Black eyed peas think their new album conveys an open message.

There is absolutely no way South Africa will win the World Cup

So the World cup match schedule is giving me a buzz I intend to watch from home, it appears okay right up until he decides to place the ESPN sport miles away from downtown Johannesburg. I just think it necessary for nobody pull the plug on the fans seated in the restaurant; as South Africa turns down Tokyo invitation. I suppose I asked to blend into the crowd my interest could be shortsighted. Welcome to mega luxury i'm away from the bar unable to see scheduled matches. Some journalist lost his/her camera I do not live in that kind of system where all I can watch is return of the dragon.

Well in order to win that World cup the media does infact take alot of footage, from previous historic rivalries Africa may be champions. A news headline read $9 billion in insurance in place for soccer World Cup. What bank has got this much money? Lloyd’s of London insurance. Staging the tournament presented South Africa with three challenges: infrastructure, transport and security. what can I do it's worth half a billion, to say the managers aren't available would be a poor standpoint. Loosing the world cup will not mean anything expecially when the concensus includes taxes and surcharges. Let's suppose that African players weren't superstars counting money sure sounds like fun, would anyone be speaking to them about counterfeit money, I would like to include their team jersey's.

On Wednesday, an armed gang stole electronic equipment from a team of Portuguese journalists during a robbery at their lodge near Johannesburg, police and one of the victims said .

Look at this from the players point of view, it's going to be crowded and it might be cloudy to challenge the loser either way the media is going to be on the cover. So maybe i'm wrong but I want for the best to happen again i'm only just a viewer from America I don't like to gamble on a player moreover in the thick of it is team Mexico. Starting June 11 hoped to travel there but not certain buses taking in passengers pulling up at the airport, and sitting down the new high speed train. Everything will depend on the coaches, what if the players don't show up, a ticket doesn't get sold, you missed a match, you can't go to certain locations. That place certainly appears dry. I wouldn't get upset if the worldcup winners gave South Africa the money behind every winner is a choice this decision didn't sound right but I will vouch for the truth of it. I know the greetings and challenge everyone to enjoy the matchups.

New Cell

Earlier watched an edition of BBC news where they showed some youth soccer players from Africa who appear underage. They seem like future coaches but the segment asked is there a possibility for a world cup getting played in Kenya? answer is a reoccuring subject let's just say never say never. Black sportsmanship on television because of the sponsors hosting an event like this isn't as simple as it sounds. Women are not the majority and may not be so interested; if you look at what comedy has done for hollywood it's simple to say i'm not joking looks and the appearance really does matter. The politics of offering everyone a fair share of the bargain price for tickets, employees, marketing paper etc isn't as simple as it may sound. Construction effort is alos another factor if your looking at Germany then you recall noticing their country, you will note the difference in overall structured venues. I'm motivated to distinguish this difference because the World cup seen from the 2002 FIFA World cup played in Japan wasn't so popular but it set precedents for some of what I discover today OOIJER, ANDRÉ ranked as a top player in the 2010 World cup. While watching it with or without a job we all made alot of incredible decisions and prospered due because we knew the outcome and could see that obvious question and then listen to the blueprint. As for sponsers I doubt if we are able to notice them all there are many more than just Adidas footwear, what about transport companies and taxi's, chefs, hotels, banks, design firms that would take part in such an event to make it work? in Kenia there is space to look now that South Africa is going into host this yrs events but you would have to stand up and take the journey, Mandela's group says World Cup will help Africa. Before going you need alot of pocket money because the health risks increase can africans endure intolerable cruelty. I could definitely watch them playing soccer even without a friendly reminder. Broadcasting the entire world cup on a satellite dish look simpossible I will need to make a request. Speaker needs to be fluent in foreign lingo but finding the muscle to embark on such challenges is far away and hard to resolve.

Well that was then this is now more than anything I requested for mobile internet at a very high cost of $70 I could install everything and use the notebook at the park, airport and on the road. But this never happened i've had to sit at my desk thinking about making the investment and reaping the benefits. Time Warner simply makes you tube look coold perhaps and advertisement but I noticed the tube turning clockwise and asked myself should I give up flying. I'm not here to blame Isp's and I certainly don't want to stop obeying all the safety regulations. I'm just distinguishing the different biz services and pinpointing air travel as the reason why, luxury cars as the reason how, motorcycles as the reason whoever considers how your going try not mixing them because each transport should work together and safely. I support all the efforts being made expecially during bad weather it's only a service that I intend to use in the future but i've had doubts. What if the notebook doesn't ever operate? will I have to request for the geeksquad to change my machine? what machine? my browser doesn't function without the internet.

I went to the local mall yesterday to ask about employment, when I arrived I parked as like I usually do on the lower level a lady was entering the facility as I walked behind. Anyway the entire place was clean there is an ice skating rink when you enter, I realized I hadn't done anything since arriving so the new tenants seemed busy putting up with the entertainment. Everyone looked puzzled but I continued walking to the second floor where I stepped into Aeropostale to ask about something when I notice a woman who seemingly appears to be the manager walking aside as the muslim customers babbled about something, wondering what they could be shopping for I left to go look for ice-cream. I asked the vendor about open positions and was really not interested with walking through the food court, when I went past there it was okay to say I felt hungry but arrived at Oakley to ask for work. This place is full during the weekdays I suppose the movie theater could be hiring but I fled onto Guess store at the lower level, there is someone at the front counter so I asked if she was hiring and am told to come back. How do you feel about getting a massage here? when told to return I simply went back to ask but found myself inside the handbag store. Anyway next door is a sunglass store so I put back my application and leave with zilch but returned back downstairs, there is someone there waiting to hand over the application I suppose the sales woman went out to lunch. After applying for the job I see a magazine on the table; i'm trying to calm down because I haven't got any money there is something to buy I wanted a job.

If you've ever been in this kind of situation you would turn around and never come back but i'm used to walking past the food court without anything to eat, this isn't recommended because time is money whenever possible I could be going to the theater. But it's now late in the afternoon and something tells me I should leave go home, there is some waiting to do was told to leave the paper nobody is standing at the front counter a woman is trying to make a purchase, Zoe Saldana has been put aside. So i'm prepared to leave here empty handed I seem to like this blazer hanging on the wall it's expensive really needed $77 for food, arcade and decent pair of pants but my budget doesn't allow it. So I go to Game Stop and see a few patrons walking by I used the restrooms and stepped in here to challenge myself to get into videogames. It's getting late everyone is bored with the young ladies speaking to each other on the ice so I sit down and begin to write.

Afterwards i'm ready to go back outside some more people are stepping into shop, there are many entrances I choose this one far away and have to return. Expect
to get a response while avoiding their remarks some ice-cream the shop wasn't there darn. I make a stop as i'm walking past the little youngsters playing by this ice rink, and do not notice the circuit city store which had been closed down. I stop to look at the girls and it they don't want to do anything so i'm wondering about why I decided to pause because I was walking out..another fantastic moment. Mothers day is sunday, May 9.

I'm not a Broker neither do I work for Goldman if in fact they did profit from the decline in the U.S household crisis the executives need to be terminated. I began to ask well how far was I going? because owning a home in North America is practically impossible without a PT job. I have been past those new housing locations and still haven't figured out why the paper didn't cover them the way they have done with automobiles. I was thinking perhaps someone would say something help me get familiar with the entire cycle of going to work and arriving at a new/used home nothing. It just flew over me how someone could construct a flat nearby and dug holes only to escape with this blame infront of my bank. Please read about how net longs like Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch, Washington Mutual, Citigroup, Bank of America, Wachovia…the list goes on. Do a google search on any of these names and you’ll come across words like “bankruptcy,” “billion dollar losses,” and “government equity stake.”

Deja Vu

This could be deja vu while seated i've just realized that it's Friday and there music available for download some of them aren't all that I expected. Well as a single African American there comes a time I regret most of the items within reach, the weekend was here there isn't anyone to chat with here goes. It's not a challenge helping myself to a good read sometimes I find reading very interesting because the satellite TV, music and tattoos took nothing. The things I thought of when in motion lately though the memories and expressions slowed, dreaming did start occurring. I'm puzzled with that technology for family got bigger and I now judge society with sorrow for the look on their faces shows when I could have bothered to think about. I just assumed Twitter was popular now that they say they're going to put ads why bother going into the bookstore? i've been away for a long time next to all this listening. I guess the campus became a lot more organized after I left to come home and watch TV; is anyone going to comment perhaps you watch 5 or more hours of television and have something to share. As a college student not attending it puts me behind aeons knowing that I got downgraded, have no job and strike to fit in with the generation that is on magazine covers, traveling, shoplifting, going to the movies, investing and taking vacation to Michigan. I will try to remember school this year incase I forget what schooling really stands for.

Jay-Z sues David Ortiz over nightclub name

First hearing Jay-Z rap and went quixotic could have dressed much better, the old days are long gone what's happening now is this a lawsuit against the Boston Red Sox put the rapper under the radar. Is Jay-Z leaving the press and playing with our emotions? Is Jigga man traveling without the e-passport? as a fan of Jay-Z I do enjoy carrying his album. From his most recent filmography and onto consistent chart toppers I would need to go & grab The Blueprint 3. I never knew there would be so much controversy about hiphop in general the rocawear laced heavy metal music video on sucker free television - it does seem like the guy isn't guilty.

Apple computer

The ipad got recent release and Apple founder Steve Jobs was on the cover for Time magazine. Since I do not know anything about what it is I suppose the only way to review this 16GB model gadget would be through a rant. The TV review showed how to flip through the pages of a Novel - why should I try and grab an iPad if there are paperbacks available in the store? I had doubts if there is anyone interested to see how a Nazi got left with paper TV news is full of authors making books. Reading is needed while at home consider how important next time your outdoors. The iPad makes it seem like nothing else ever existed. I think without paper I cannot buy it, without paper recycling is easier the gadget made news the market our entire stock exchange could not do without it. Apple review very hard to use if it’s about touching a flat screen you could put inside a notebook. Like a page from a magazine rank the iPad it really takes it to the next level through it’s interaction with the person, it’s just a mobile computer put on TV for review. This gadget saves from wasting recycled paper it is not a Bed and it doesn’t tell you where to go, whom to wait for and it doesn’t have a personality so don’t bother asking it for directions. This reminds me of GPS navigation devices show you a map from the sky above whose going to look at the stars.
