Though we are all created equally  Whether you agree or not  I believe this is how the world really works  People with blond hair  Have an advantage over those with dark hair  Blue eyes over those with brown  White is an advantage over black  The good looking over the less attractive  Slim people over heavy ones  Tall over the short  Rich over the poor  Educated over the less educated  The strong over the weak  The doers over the couch potatoes  Celebrities over the main streeters  Kings and queens over the peons  The healthy over the sick  Those with friends in high places  Men over women  Socialites over loaners  And there are many more  That can be added to the list  But this is just my take on social advantages  If you disagree just read the paper  And look between the lines 

Growing in a strange world, you grow up as a naughty child.  Because of everything you see, you adapt to the wild  Before you know, you can never go back to being mild  Youre stuck here, in the planet's style  You frown when you frown, you smile when you smile  Nothing changes, Everything becomes anticipated like you've been doing this for awhile  You wish for more but all you get is the same trials  Then you wake up questioning your methods,  Like the road youre on is all pretty setup  Youre keep telling yourself "Come on Get up"  What if I did   What if I stayed inside and did my business  I should've had wisdom  Because this path seems meaningless  I've should've been more  But every action has consequences  What if I woke up in a less strange predicament  What if I woke up and found out why I'm here  What life meant  What if  the answers are all here  But I choose to live like this   What if  

I love a good burger but without all fat of beef tonight its Greek Turkey burgers yum yum. Greek Turkey Burgers Ingredients: 7 oz. plain greek yogurt 1 medium fresh lemon ¼ tsp minced garlic ¼ tsp dried dill 1.25 lb. ground turkey 6 halves sun dried tomatoes 1 medium red onion 2 oz. frozen spinach ¼ cup crumbled feta 1 tsp dried oregano ½ tsp minced garlic ⅓ cup bread crumbs 1 lg. egg 1 med. cucumber 6 hamburger buns to taste salt and pepper Directions: Prepare the yogurt sauce by combining the yogurt, ¼ tsp minced garlic, dry dill, juice of half the lemon and a dash of salt. Stir everything to combine and then refrigerate to allow the flavors to blend while you make the burgers. Thaw the frozen spinach and squeeze out as much moisture as possible. Roughly chop the spinach to prevent long stringy pieces. Also chop the sun dried tomatoes and ¼ of the red onion. In a bowl combine the ground turkey with the spinach, sun dried tomatoes, red onion, feta, ½ tsp minced garlic, dried oregano, egg, bread crumbs, ½ tsp of salt and some freshly ground pepper. Stir everything until it is evenly combined. Shape the mixture into six patties. Cook the burgers on a counter top grill, a non-stick skillet or over open flame. Spread the yogurt sauce on both sides of a bun, add a warm burger and top with thin slices of red onion and cucumber. Enjoy!

Get Fit, Have Fun Spicy Sriracha Shrimp and Zucchini Lo Mein Ingredients: 8 oz. package lo mein noodles 2 Tbsp olive oil 1 tablespoon butter 1/2 pound shrimp, peeled 1 medium zucchini, cut in half vertically, then cut into half moon shapes 3 cloves garlic, minced 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes 2 large eggs, lightly beaten 1 Tbsp brown sugar 2 1/2 Tablespoons soy sauce 2 Tablespoons Sriracha hot sauce 1 teaspoon grated ginger (optional) 1 teaspoon sesame oil (optional) 1/2 cup fresh cilantro 3 green onions, sliced thinly Salt to taste, if needed Directions: Begin a large pot of salted water to boil. Once the water reaches a full boil, add the noodles and cook according to the package directions (about 4-5 minutes). While waiting for the water to boil, prepare the spicy sriracha sauce. In a small bowl stir together the brown sugar, soy sauce, sriracha, ginger, and sesame oil. In a large skillet melt 1 tablespoon of butter over medium-low heat. Add the crushed red pepper to the butter, and once it's completely melted whisk in the eggs. Stir gently and cook for about 3 minutes. Once the egg is done cooking, keep the pan on the burner but transfer eggs to a small plate; set aside. Add 1 tablespoon of oil to the pan and increase the heat to medium-high. Add shrimp and cook for 2 minutes on each side, or just until firm and bright pink. Remove with a slotted spoon and transfer to a clean plate; set aside. Add zucchini to the pan, increase heat to high, and remaining oil; stir fry until just charred; about 3 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook for one minute. Add drained noodles to the skillet along with the cooked egg, shrimp, and prepared sauce. Turn the heat on to medium-low, and stir until everything is coated well with the sauce. Sprinkle the sliced green onions and cilantro and serve at once!

Not even in my right mind did I think Theo would grow up soooo darn fine wow! Happy Birthday to Malcolm Jamal Warner! Malcolm is best known for his role as Theo, the only son of The Huxtables on the sitcom hit "The Cosby Show." What was your favorite Theo episode?!

The protagonist, Eric, has a recurring dream and is beset with a feeling of being late. For what he has no idea, as he can never remember the dream; only that there was something about a bird. He recognises that he is behaving irrationally, but eventually decides to follow an unknown path in order to get the dream out of his system. However, the further he goes, the more he begins to remember details from the dream. Worse, things manifest that are real enough for him to photograph and send evidence to his wife that he hasn’t gone completely round the bend. Some of these are scary or disturbing in various ways. The journey takes Eric through a variety of landscapes and challenges, each riddled with hazards that he can only discover as things attack or trip him up in some way. One of the things I like about the story is that Eric is intelligent enough to ask obvious questions, like what happens if he refuses to follow the path that appears to be laid out for him and just goes home? And why him? Answers will be forthcoming, and Eric’s journey forms much of the structure of the story. There are aspects of the story that will make the reader uncomfortable. It is a Horror story after all. There are also passages to inspire various forms of fear, from monsters to natural fear of heights. The author takes the time to bring out the emotional reactions that you would expect to experience in each situation. He also introduces original elements into each stage of the journey. As I said, there are surprises, whether they pertain to major plot points or are amusing details. That’s one of the other things I also liked about the story. There was humour. A one-liner in the middle of a dire situation can be hilarious if done right and I laughed a fair bit while reading about monster chases. The story kept me interested on an intellectual level. There were some clever plays on words and conversations that sounded like real people talking. By the time I got to the later chapters, I was really wondering how the author was going to resolve the story. I can usually pretty much work it out by that stage, but not this time. While I won’t give away any details, I will say that the ending was satisfying and although it is set up for the next book in a series, I feel that I have the choice to continue or not, as the current story has reached a proper end.  I probably will read the next one because I enjoyed this one. The writing was generally good apart from the overuse of pronouns and the way the author made each stage of the journey unique in its detail leads me to believe that other books by the same author are likely to be good. I wasn’t terrified at the edge of my seat, but I did feel driven to keep reading. I think the humour diffused a lot of what could have been more tense. I’d love to see this author do some suspenseful build-up and save the humour for diffusing it after the reader is drawn thoroughly into the creep factor. I see a definite talent here and will be keeping an eye on
