Never, ever give up: Arthur's inspirational transformation

Never, ever give up: Arthur's inspirational transformation

Husband banned from Target Husband banned from Target After I retired, my wife insisted that I accompany her on her trips to Target. Unfortunately, like most men, I found shopping boring and preferred to get in and get out. Equally unfortunate, my wife is like most women - she loves to browse. Yesterday my dear wife received the following letter from our local Target. Dear Mrs. Over the past six months, your husband has caused quite a commotion in our store.. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. And last, but not least: 15.

T-Shirt Underwear I know you've got them, lurking in drawers, the back of the closet, in the "giveaway" pile: those T-shirts that are, for various reasons, both unwearable and indispensable. They are too small, too big, too short, have a stain, a hole, or some other flaw, and yet you cannot bear to part with them. I took my old t-shirts and gave them new life. The Concept My first pair came about because of an ill-shapen tee with a great air-brushed-style kitty face on the front. Late one night I was folding laundry. It's true that, as an undergarment, not many people will ever see this creation.

Famous life quotation | Our Funny Planet The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it. (W. M. Lewis) The only true wisdom consists in knowing that you know nothing If you can't get rid of the skeleton in your closet, you'd best teach it to dance. When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace. My tastes are simple: I am easily satisfied with the best. You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough. Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves. Your time is limited, so don`t waste it living someone else's life. Everything comes too late for those who only wait. Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted. Write to be understood, speak to be heard, read to grow... Don’t settle for a relationship that won’t let you be yourself. In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life. ShareThis

Glass Beach – The Dump You’ll Want to Visit Before you say anything about the content of this article, I hate people who litter. I’ll judge you if I think you’re too lazy to recycle. I hate pollution and the death of our fragile ecosystems and all the rest. It’s like a little Inuksuk… I’ve been trolling around for lesser known landscapes to road trip to and explore, and stumbled across this chunk of multicoloured west coast paradise. These days, Glass Beach is a protected part of MacKerricher State Park, but in 1949, it was the site of an unrestricted dump. Eventually, California realized that dumping automobiles, appliances, toxic substances and razor sharp shards of glass into the water was probably a bad idea, and looked elsewhere for a dumping site. The beaches under the cliffs lay polluted, cluttered and ruined, and were basically treated as a forgotten ‘mistake.’

How I Can Afford My Life Of Constant Travel I’m confused. I’m simply confused as to how it’s possible that I have so far failed to properly explain how I’ve managed to travel/live/work abroad nonstop for 12 years straight (and counting). The questions are still pouring in every single day: How do you do it? How is it possible to travel for so long? And while I thoroughly enjoy communicating with readers (I’m being completely serious and encourage you all to continue sending your emails to me as often as you wish), the fact that these very questions are on the minds of so many of you out there has led me to believe that I need to do a better job at providing the answers. While it’s true that I’ve already written plenty of posts on the matter, clearly all of these posts, even as one collective entity, still fall well short of proving that a life of travel is not some crazy fantasy but a perfectly reasonable and easily attainable lifestyle option instead. So what am I to do? December 25, 1999: March 2000 October 2000 January 2001 April 2003

T-shirt bag diy « the tragic whale I got this shirt at Target without trying it on first (mistake) and didn’t know what to do when I discovered it didn’t fit. It wouldn’t have been a problem but I IMMEDIATELY rip all tags off of new clothes and throw them away after I go shopping. Every time. I honestly never learn. And by that time the receipt usually has chewed gum in it so… Yeah. But I’ve wanted to make a t-shirt bag for a while, and this turned out to be the perfect opportunity! The shirt: How cute is this, though? First I sewed the bottom shut: Then I did that thing (insert technical term here) where you sew the corners to give the bag a boxy shape. I cut off the arms and the collar, over-exaggerating the collar so the bag would have a bigger opening. I edged the handles with some black bias tape. And, that’s it! Use it for groceries, bring it to the beach, whatever, and it’s so easy to wash! Like this: Like Loading...

That’s where these cute up-dos come in to play. My hair is medium length so these ‘dos are all feasible for me.
