OBAMA ON NEW DOLLAR BILL

WASHINGTON – The White House has approved the redesign of U.S. currency.  Barack Obama will be on the new dollar bill.

The Obama Administration feels that the American dollar is in bad need of a makeover.  They have partnered with the Dollar ReDe$ign Project to pick a new design for U.S. currency.  Currently, the design that the administration likes best was done by Dowling Duncan (a British duo), which features a unique vertical design.  It also features President Obama on the one dollar bill.

“We love the Dowling Duncan look.  They’ve come up with a creative design and put President Obama where he belongs… on number 1,” said David Axelrod, Senior Adviser to President Obama.

The Dollar Redesign Project was organized by creative strategy consultant Richard Smith.  He is still soliciting ideas for the dollar bill of the future. “Our great ‘rival’, the Euro, looks so spanky in comparison it seems the only clear way to revive this global recession is to rebrand and redesign,” the project notes on its website.

Here’s the web site for  The Dollar Redesign Project.

“Don’t waste your time submitting a design, it’s a done deal,” said Rahm Emanuel, White House Chief of Staff.  The President wants “change” in the currency and we’ve unanimously picked Dowling Duncan’s work.  Fed Chairman, Benjamin Bernanke, has signed off on our choice for the redesign.  We intend to have the money in circulation by December, 2012.”

Emanuel went on to say that there are plans to redo U.S. coins as well.  “We don’t need a complete redesign of our coins, but we do want to put President Obama on the penny and move President Lincoln to the nickel. Thomas Jefferson, who was on the nickel, will be… discontinued.”  Republican  Congressman Paul Ryan suggested President Obama be  put on both the “nickel and dime” instead of the penny.

Another American icon might also be replaced.  “Uncle Sam is outdated,” said Axelrod.  “We need to update this icon as well.  It will now be Uncle Barack.”

Republicans are apoplectic about the changes the Administration is proposing.  “They won’t get this passed when we get control of the house,” said Minority Leader John Boehner.  “Typical Republicans, they want to block everything, even a little meaningless design issue,” said Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.  “It doesn’t matter what they think, we’re going to pass this and every American will be carrying Obama dollars in their wallets and purses come December, 2012.”

FYI:  The Obama dollar will reportedly be worth $0.47.

February 17, 2012, 6:18 pmAlways Be Thankful

Trust HIM

 

Me: God, can I ask You a question?

God: Sure

Me: Promise You won't get mad

God: I promise

Me: Why did You let so much stuff happen to me today?

God: What do u mean?

Me: Well, I woke up late

God: Yes

Me: My car took forever to start

God: Okay

Me: at lunch they made my sandwich wrong & I had to wait

God: Huummm

Me: On the way home, my phone went DEAD, just as I picked up a call

God: All right

Me: And to top it all off, when I got home ~I just want to soak my feet in my new foot massager & relax. BUT it wouldn't work!!! Nothing went right today! Why did You do that?

God: Let me see, the death angel was at your bed this morning & I had to send one
of My Angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that.

Me: (humbled): OH

God: I didn't let your car start because there was a drunk driver on your route that would have hit you if you were on the road.

Me: (ashamed)

God: The first person who made your sandwich today was sick & I didn't want you to catch what they have, I knew you would not be able to cope.

Me: (embarrassed):Okay

God: Your phone went dead because the person that was calling was going to give false witness about what you said on that call, I didn't even let you talk to them so you would be covered.

Me: (softly): I see God

God: Oh and that foot massager, it had a shortage that was going to throw out all of the power in your house tonight. I didn't think you wanted to be in the dark.

Me: I'm Sorry God

God: Don't be sorry, just learn to Trust Me.... in All things , the Good & the bad.

Me: I will trust You.

God: And don't doubt My plans for your day it is Always Better than your plan.

Me: I won't God. And let me just tell you God, Thank You for Everything today.

God: You're welcome child. It was just another day being your God and I Love looking after My Children...

February 14, 2012, 1:58 amIn Loving Memory Of Whitney Houston!!

Whitney, you were "Waiting to Exhale" and trying to figure out "Why Does It Hurt So Bad". In spite of it all, you really wanted that "One Moment in Time" where somebody could say "Count on Me" and really mean it. So...in your process of "Getting to Happy", you turned to God and said "I Look to You" and He replied "I Will Always Love You". Now, you are experiencing "The Greatest Love of All". You can finally close your eyes and exhale.---- In Loving Memory Of Whitney Houston.

Bruk Pocket Jamaican



"Recently, this Jamaican won the 10 million special lottery for a dollar. As soon as the office of the Lottery Corporation was open on the following day, he was there to collect his winnings.

Graciously, he presented his winning ticket to the clerk and in his best English uttered his request "Me cum fi collect the 10 millian dallars, si me ticket ya".

After reviewing and checking the ticket with his manager, the clerk returned and requested on how he would like his payments. The Jamaican replied "Mi wan all a de moni now". "Unfortunately, Sir" the nervous clerk responded, "The procedures are that we can only give you one million now and the balance equally over the next 20 years".

Furious and agitated, the Jamaican asked for the manager, who re-iterated "Sir, my assistant is correct, it is the regulation of the corporation that we initially pay you one million dollars now with the balance paid to you equally over the next 20 years".

Outraged, the Jamaican slammed his hand on the desk and shouted in anger, "Oonu tek me fi idiat, me wan all a de moni now or oonu gi me bak me rass dallar!!"

November 6, 2011, 7:18 pmWord Color Test

In this test DO NOT READ the words, say aloud the COLOR of each word.


 
YELLOW BLUE ORANGE
BLACK RED GREEN
PURPLE YELLOW RED
ORANGE GREEN BLACK
BLUE RED PURPLE
GREEN BLUE ORANGE

 

This is a type of psycholinguistic test that poses some difficulty because the portion of the brain that handles language has the conflicting tasks of verbalizing the color of the written words while ignoring the meaning of words representing colors.

September 25, 2011, 5:43 pmArchangel St. Michael September 29th

Saint Michael

Archangel St. Michael  ~ Sen Mishel Akanj 


Feast day: September 29th {Feast Day is also known as Birthday}
Patron of:  Grocers, Mariners, Paratroopers, Police, and Sickness

Invoke Him on September 29th


Invocation:


Archangel St. Michael commands the legions of heaven and defends humans in the constant battle with the evil ones.  If you have ever invoked his name in times of trouble then you surely have experienced the peace and sense of well being that his presence radiates.  His feast day is celebrated on September 29th and this is a great opportunity to perform a ritual to invoke St. Michael’s presence and protection in your daily life. 

 

  • Find a quiet spot where you will not be disturbed.  Place your chair facing East. Ground yourself by placing your feet firmly on the floor.  Close your eyes and take three deep breaths.  Inhale through your nose and softly exhale through your mouth.
  • Picture a blue light forming around your feet.  Imagine this blue ray of protection growing around you and enveloping your entire body. 
  • Again take three deep breaths.  Picture yourself inhaling the protective light of the blue ray with each breath you take.  When you feel a sense of well being say the following words:  “I now invoke the mighty Archangel Michael to stand at my right-hand side. Please grant me the strength, courage, integrity, and protection I need to fulfill my purpose in this incarnation. Please use your sword to cut away any doubts and negativity. Surround me with your protection, so that I may always work on the side of good. Thank you.” 
  • Imagine Archangel St. Michael embracing you.  Feel the love emanating from his presence directly into your heart.  Imagine his sword forming a protective shield over your head.  Put both hands over your heart and say thank you to the powerful Archangel and invite him to stay always with you. 
  • At this point you may feel a sense of extreme well being, peace and relaxation.  You may experience a change of temperature in the room.  Enjoy the bliss and comfort of knowing that you are connected with the powerful Archangel. 

 

 

When you are ready to return to your normal day’s activities, take 3 deep breaths thank him for his presence and ask him to be a part of your everyday life.  When you invoke the presence of Archangel St. Michael you are never alone.

Thanks ~ Divinafe

June 28, 2011, 2:56 pmWho's on First?

I Bless my spirits this day as I do each and every day, it brings me great comfort that they are always looking out for my best interest, their alerts are always precise and on time. Ayibobo.

I got this email today.... Even though I needed no confirmation....... huumm.

 

Who's on First?

 

Hi Empress,

 

Do you put yourself first? Or do you take care of everyone else - first.

 

No one else will respect your needs and aspirations as much as you. By not taking care of yourself first, you neglect your life. And, truly, you neglect those close to you too.

The very people asking for your attention are best served if you are in a positive place - not the other way around.

In other words, if you do put yourself first, you're a step ahead of the game. Because you are mentally grounded, spiritually nourished and emotionally happy.

Now, this fact is meant to inform you, so your mind can shift you into living positively.

When you put your own needs first, you will not neglect your body, mind or spirit. You will naturally and eagerly focus on the quality of your life. Really, the happier and healthier YOU are, the better off Everyone is.

 

I stand firm in alignment with my calling allowing all of life’s goodness to come to me with ease, joy and glory, I will forever uphold the lineage of my ancestors, I am the recipient of all of the goodness that has been stored up and set aside for me. Ayibobo.

How Does It Get Even Better Than This?

Boss
: Sure, come on in.   What can I do for you?

Employee:  Well sir, as you know, I have been an employee of this prestigious firm for over ten years.

Boss
:  Yes.
 
Employee:  I won't beat around the bush.   Sir, I would like a raise. I currently have four companiesafter me and so I decided to talk to you first.

Boss
:  A raise?   I would love to give you a raise, but this is just not the right time.
 
Employee:  I understand your position, and I know that the current economic down turn has had a negative impact on sales, but you must also take into consideration my hard work, pro-activeness and loyalty to this company for over a decade.

Boss
:  Taking into account these factors, and considering I don't want to start a brain drain, I'm willing to offer you a ten percent raise and an extra five days of vacation time.  How doesthat sound?
 
Employee:  Great!   It's a deal!   Thank you, sir!

Boss
:  Before you go, just out of curiosity, what companies were after you?
 
Employee:  Oh, the Electric Company, Gas Company, Water Company and the Mortgage Company!
