The Titanic - Cajun Humor

One thing about Cajun's, they have a marvelous sense of humor.
If you have the time, visit this site...and wait until it downloads until you watch the whole thing.
You'll never view Titanic the same.
There's nothing like a good laugh. Especially, if you can laugh at yourself.
So, sit back and watch PooPoo Broussard's rendition of a moving scene from that movie.
And no, I didn't make that name up...

My Tarot Card

You are Strength

Courage, strength, fortitude. Power not arrested in the act of judgement, but passing on to further action, sometimes obstinacy.

This is a card of courage and energy. It represents both the Lion's hot, roaring energy, and the Maiden's steadfast will. The innocent Maiden is unafraid, undaunted, and indomitable. In some cards she opens the lion's mouth, in others she shuts it. Either way, she proves that inner strength is more powerful than raw physical strength. That forces can be controlled and used to score a victory is very close to the message of the Chariot, which might be why, in some decks, it is Justice that is card 8 instead of Strength. With strength you can control not only the situation, but yourself. It is a card about anger and impulse management, about creative answers, leadership and maintaining one's personal honor. It can also stand for a steadfast friend.

Measuring our goals...

Organization for me means....knowing where all my tax information is at the end of February, when all the 1099's are supposed to be in our hands. Not being reminded at the end of March by my accountant to get my stuff together.

Having a 'clean' house, on schedule. That's a part of my organization. I have a huge spreadsheet, call me anal or forgetful, the latter being more the case. While working on this spreadsheet project, my hubby notified me that we had dinner guests coming in an hour, and to 'spiffy' up the place. As I looked around, there was nothing that needed my attention. Welcome, guests! It was a crawfish boil, so not a biggie to have extra people over. But I knew my house was 'company clean' and could relax instead of the giving the infamous 'lick and a promise'.

Paying my bills on time. That pesky water bill had better be paid and in their office by the tenth or they will turn my water off! And other bills as well. I'm supposed to pay any and all bills on each Sunday, to mail out on Monday. Sounds simple, but sometimes the bills aren't put in the correct 'pile'.

To me, being organized isn't meaning that it's done by the end of the year, but each and every day. At least in my estimation. Some projects can slide for a day or two, but not when the water bill 'must' be in their hands by the tenth.

This year I expect to have finished two screenplays, three novels, and to get the attention of a publisher for my finished projects.

One day a week, I would like to work an afternoon on my genealogy book. There is a 'family cookbook' that I'd like to do for my future generations. One of the grandgirls asked me for my macaroni and cheese recipe. The only recipe that I have from my grandmother is to add pepper to pumpkin pies, it was the 'family' secret, that she told everyone. LOL

But when it becomes time to make pumpkin pies, I sprinkle pepper in it as a tribute to my grandmother. I'd like to be remembered like that.
