“The big numbers aren’t reached unless the small numbers are realized.” – Joyce Meyer

When I think back to several years ago, I never would have been able to imagine the place that I am at now in my life.  My old self could never have imagined that by the time 2017 rolled around I would have my personal training certification, I would be preparing to compete at Canadian Nationals in Masters Bikini, and I would be starting my own business!  I was depressed and discouraged, and only now do I see that it had been going on for several years.  I had a good life in terms of my health, my family and my finances, but there was an underlying discontent that I just couldn’t seem to shake.  I wasn’t working, but I couldn’t seem to enjoy that fact.  I lacked self-confidence and was overly concerned with what others…

Although fall may be here in the fashion world, summer is definitely still here in the real world. Dressing for the heat can be tough when you want to stay cool and comfortable but also look somewhat put-together. Luckily, I found a way to do both.

YUCKY DUCT (TAPE)

Do they sell the good stuff any more,

What is called “duct  tape” is poor–

Fabric incorporated

Is missed, related

To its crappy performance scored!

Packing tape is all it is,

No fabric with which strengthened…

Cuts like a breeze–

Comes off with a sneeze,

Cheap profits is all it’s good for.

–J.E.C.

THE BAD BEAN BATCH

HORRORS1 a bad bean batch,

Cook’s embarrassed–“natch”–

Yucky unfrozen

He’s supposing

He’d better get rid of it FAST!

 If it was the last food on earth,

His stomach would find it a berth…

Was he hasty–

‘Cause now it’s nasty–

Suitable for burial under earth!

–J.E.C.
