No Doubt - Push & Shove ft. Busy Signal & Major Lazer

Love No Doubt! Gwen Stefani is so timeless!
This song has been on repeat, for some reason I didn't like it the first time I heard it but now I do!

Building Community

Image
So I found this on the web a while back… My father always preaches on the importance of building community and he is so right!

These wafers should come with a warning label!

Image
A SWEET TREAT!
Back in my snack machine raging days lol… I loved Kit-Kat's and Snickers … And this wafer reminds me of a Kit-Kat BUT 10x better! So to anybody that likes Kit-Kat's but would like a healthier alternative I HIGHLY suggest you try Loacker wafers...


There are so many kinds of Loacker Wafers there is lemon, vanilla, hazelnut, coconut and that is just to name a few.
My favorite is the hazelnut flavor… I have tried the vanilla and chocolate flavors.. BUT nothing compares to the Gardena Hazelnut and the plain Hazelnut.

Another reason why I love these wafers so much is that the Loacker company DOES NOT add any
preservatives or artificial flavorings. The packaging also states that there is NO GMO! (that makes my heart smile) There are no colorings, nor hydrogenated fats!
Of couse remember everything in moderation…because these wafers can be addicting WARNING!

HIGH FIVE TO LOACKER! JOB WELL DONE!

Prayers to those in Oklahoma

Image
Moore, Oklahoma (CNN)-- Search-and-rescue crews with dogs went through smashed houses and crushed cars on Tuesday, looking for signs of life a day after a monster tornado pulverized a vast swath of suburbs of Oklahoma City.

No new survivors or bodies have been found since the early hours after the tornado carved a trail as much as a mile wide and 17 miles long on Monday afternoon.

At least 24 people, including nine children, have been killed, according to the state medical examiner's office. More than 230 people were injured, according to authorities.






Earlier reports of at least 51 deaths were erroneous, said Amy Elliot, chief administrative officer for the Oklahoma Office of the Chief Medical Exam via http://edition.cnn.com/2013/05/21/us/severe-weather/index.html?hpt=hp_t1

6 processed and artificial ingredients to AVOID

Image
Surfing the web today I came across an article on http://www.takepart.com/photos/processed-ingredients-avoid/refined-grains
1. Food Coloring
Often times labels as Red #40, Yellow #5 and Blue #2
Where can you find these ingredients? Red Velvet Cake! Now I am a sucker for sweets but I honestly one day had to think about what makes this cake RED? What makes this icing green? Imagine what this dye is doing to our insides.


2. Artifical Sweetners
Splenda, Sweet-N-Low and Equal. Sure they may be calorie free but the effects these chemicals have on the brain are not good.














3. Refined Grains
This includes products made from white flour (usually labeled as enriched “wheat” flour), white rice, corn meal, etc. When grains are refined the most nutritional part of the grain (the bran and germ) is removed. This prolongs shelf life, among other things, but remember...real food should (and does!) rot, so avoid the science experiment and stick to the whole grains provided to us by nature.

Instead, give …

Too many mc's NOT ENOUGH MICS!

The Fugees  - How Many Mics youtube.com/watch?v=gv-0B-V-JpM

The Score!  Released in 1996 this album was a HIT! Personally one of my favorites!  Two songs 'Ready or Not' & 'Killing me softly' made it to the Billboard Top 100.
The following year The Fugee's won TWO Grammy's Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals & Best Rap Album.

Hello All:
Here is a link to a piece that I was ‘required’ to release immediately, by virtue of the impending legal deadline. I love being able to reach people directly, but in an ideal scenario, I would not have to rush the release of new music… but the message is still there. In light of Wednesday’s tragic loss (of former label mate Chris Kelly), I am even more pressed to YELL this to a multitude that may not understand the cost of allowing today’s unhealthy paradigms to remain unchecked!

So recently Ms. Lauryn Hill posted something on her tumblr about tax case…

"It has been reported that I signed a new record deal, and that I did this to pay taxes. Yes, I have recently entered into an agreement with Sony Worldwide Entertainment, to launch a new label, on which my new music will be released. And yes, I am working on new music.

I’ve remained silent, after an extensive healing process. This has been a 10+ year battle, for a long time played out behind closed doors, but now in front of the public eye. This is an old conflict between art and commerce… free minds, and minds that are perhaps overly tethered to structure. This is about inequity, and the resulting disenfranchisement caused by it. I’ve been fighting for existential and economic freedom, which means the freedom to create and live without someone threatening, controlling, and/or manipulating the art and the artist, by tying the purse strings…"
