10th Anniversary of USA Tragedy

     10 Years ago on September 11, 2001 We as Americans witnessed one of the biggest tragedies ever known to us.  I can't say that I was alive or old enough to remember any other tragedy to the US in my 35 years but I will never foreget about this day!
     You hear it all the time Where were you?  And what were you doing?  Can you answer these questions?  I can with complete confideince that I know where I was and exactly what I was doing at the exact moment the first plane crashed into the Twin Towers in NYC.  Alan Jackson had a song "Where were you the day the world stopped turning".  It is an Awesome song and if you haven't heard you really need to check it out.

     I was working at AAA Mini storage, and we had a small 13" TV in the waiting room.  I was waiting to take my son which was 3 years old at the time, to his pre-school program when the news came across the TV.  It was on every local channel and a horrific sight to everyone.  I remember my son asking what happened to the TV momma, and I really had no real response to give him.  I wasn't sure myself I think, it just didn't seem like it was real.  It was almost like I was just watching a really bad movie on TV.

     I welcome any comments or stories you have to share from this day!  Sorry for such a short post but this is one is difficult to write without getting all teary eyed!

Confessions of a Catholic Cop ~Review~

     I received a copy of this book that I had actually won from another blog and I received it on Friday  before Hurricane Irene hit us here in NC.  I thought OK the power usually goes out also no TV, no computer, but I can read! I also have to admit that I do NOT enjoy reading so the book has to grab my attention and interesting for me to actually sit down and read.  It was a little difficult trying to read the book at first simply because there was a hurricane coming in, and all the excitement from that made it difficult to concentrate on what I was reading.  All and all I got a few chapters read, and my Mother in Law said you must really enjoy that book because all I seemed to wanna talk about was what going on in the book.

     I will tell you this, this is not a book for young children or even for some teens.  There is some really ugly language but you have remember that this book is based in the Bronx of NYC, and based on these Officers.  If you have ever had a job where you witnessed crime, murder and Rape daily, I guess you would understand how and why it is so easy for this language to come about!

     This a book for pretty much everybody! It has a little comedy, Romance, thriller, and suspense.  I got a little over halfway through the book and thought to myself I never saw that coming.  It kept me wandering at this point What was gonna happen next?  and where did that come from?  There are about 5 main characters in this book.  There is Michael Beckett, and Vincent D'Amato, there is Soalna Ortiz, Pete from Queens and the one and only R.J. Gold.  There are many others you will get to meet and I think out the ones you will get to meet at first didn't care but by the end Mona Love had my attention and I was rolling on the bed and my hubby looked at me like are you nuts?  I had no response other than "You have to read this for yourself".  It is as I stated an awesome book and by the last 10 or 15 chapters I couldn't put the book down.

     I am sitting here and my mind is all over the place because so want to tell you about the entire book and how it ends and what I saw.  While I was reading this book I felt like a bystander just watching it while everything happened.  It is a MUST READ and highly recommended!  The author Thomas J. Fitzsimmons does an awesome job of bringing this line of work to reality for those of us who don't live in the Bronx f NYC.

Thomas J. Fitzsimmons also has another book just released and also available at titled "Confessions of a Policewoman.  I got to admit I can't wait to get my hands on this book now.   You can find him on facebook at!/pages/Thomas-Fitzsimmons/38140252479
on twitter at!/Thomasfitzsimmo
and on his website
He is awesome Author and so far I haven't found a book I didn't enjoy!

Please feel free to leave a comment below if you have read this book and if you haven't read it yet let me know what kind of books you enjoy reading.  Also I would love for you to follow via GFC (google friend connect)

Houseplants for the BLACK Thumb

     I am sure at some point in our lives that really loves houseplants but instead of having the Golden Touch they have the Touch of Death!  My Mother, and both sister's have that deadly touch when it comes to houseplants, and for whatever reason everybody always gives them the most beautifulest plants you have ever seen.  Me?  I get what I purchase and put a card that says it from my Lil ones!  Once they kill the plants I then inherit their plants as if I am a plant Doctor.  They even Tell me "Oh you can have it if you can save it" lol.  So I always do my best and I usually beg them for the plants before they are too far gone.  So now I have a few plants here, that if you love house plants but can't seem to grow them.

1.  Snake Plant AKA Mother in Laws Tongue
It grows 2-4 tall, Any light works, and it prefers a dryish soil.  Especial dryer soil in the winter.  The darker the light the darker the leaves, the lower the light, the lighter the leaves will be.

2.  Spider Plant
This plant likes bright light but not direct sunlight!  Moist and well drained soil is best
The little plants on the tips of this plant can be removed, placed in water to secure a better rooting system and now you have even MORE houseplants.  Great to give friends who also don't have any luck with houseplants and you can let them know (You grew it yourself)!

3.  Cacti, Succelents, Jade Plant
Dry soils, good light
If you forget to water these, it is OK they normally grow in the dessert where there is plenty of light and not so much water.  Just be careful with osme of these if you have small childrren or pets because some have pricklys on them!  There are alot of other plants in this line that is really cool that has no prickles like Banana plant, Jade, etc.  Check with your local flower shops, Home depot, Lowe's, nursery's, they can tell you the many different types and what is best for you!

4.  Hens and Bitties
These are typically grown outdoors, but most people that can't have indoor plants have trouble with outdoor plants.  I love these because these also grow in rock walls, so they can be very decorative, and sooo easy to grow.  I have mine in the morning full sun around my pond and currently they are in pots because I haven't decided exactly how I want them arranged around my pond.  They grow and grow and continue to grow and can be easlil transplanted to get more plants.

5.  Peace Lily's
Low light
slow growth to 3 feet
Once the leaves start to droop you water them. You want to be sure to not over water them.  The chances of these dieing from being under watered is slim to none, but you can drown them!  They are beautiful plants with green leaves and a white flower.

6.  Philodernron
Low to bright light but not direct light
warm temps and evenly moist soil
This is a vine type plant that will take over your home if  you allow it.  At one time the entire living room was incased in with this plant.  This is another plant that you can cut pieces off, place in water to root, and viola you have a whole new plant.

Rule of thumb when you are not sure about how much light your plants need ~the darker the leaves the less sun is need, the lighter the shade the more sun is needed~  With watering ~You should let the soil dry out before watering again~.  Alot of plants if kept wet all the time will cause root rot and kills the plant!  If you have any questions, comments, or just wanna talk about this please leave a comment.  I always love to hear what my readers are thinking!
