“If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?” - RuPaul - - - - - - - - - - - “if by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people -- their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties -- someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.” - John F.

And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

The Best Burger in America - As if......

..... we didn't know who had the best burger in town.  Seriously though; If you're from Texas, or from Corpus Christi for that matter - you're all too familiar with the famous burger that had many of us munching on them when the bars closed on any given night.  I won't even begin to tell you how well Whataburger employees knew me. LOL.  

Corpus Christi, Texas is the birthplace of this wonderful creation and so proud to say, "We're CHAMPIONS!!"

Thank you Fast Company for sharing this info.

Must Watch: It Can Wait - It's Up to You to Make That Choice

I haven't posted a blog since December of last year, but when it comes to something as important as texting and driving I have a need to say something.

I've mentioned it in the past and I'll mention it again; I was a serial text driver.  And not only texting - this included reading email, checking online posts, etc. etc.

Why do it?  What's so important that it can't wait?  Perhaps your dog is at the vet and you're waiting for that very important call that he's made out of surgery okay.  Perhaps your employer is calling or texting you with a very important errand to run.  Or perhaps you didn't have a phone to begin with?

It can wait.. No matter how serious the information is on the other end of that message.

I've had Facebook friends that have passed on, and while they're not people I would consider "personal" friends, they were friends in my Facebook world. We're human - so when I read about someone on Facebook who has died because they were texting and driving - it kicks me in the gut.

AT&T has released a video I encourage everyone to watch.   They have released this in conjunction with their 5th Anniversary of the "it can wait" campaign.

No Post Is Worth A Life!
At 6:30 PM on June 2, 2011 I made a promise to never text and drive ever again. Do the same - save a life. If not your own, do it for those you can seriously hurt.

Movies To Watch: San Andreas

While the plot of the movie is so stereotypical - Father goes out of his way to save daughter across the state; The special effects would be something I'd like to see on the big screen.  Poor Californians though, they can never get a break.  If it's not DC getting blown to bits, it's the Golden State falling into the Atlantic.

"Where will you be?  Who will you be with?..."

Check out the trailer to San Andreas

Obama Takes Over The Colbert Report

Last night, President Obama kicked Stephen Colbert off his chair just as he was about to give his segment of "The Word".  It was pretty fun to watch. 

He joked about himself, Republicans and of course, Fox News.  Check it out.
