The chains of habit are generally too small to be felt until they are too strong to be broken. ~Samuel Johnson

For the past few days I have been on a path that when crossed by others, I'm given the finger, yelled at or given a dirty look.

Now, I know I have a little bit of road rage but I have never felt so bad about it until now.

Boston isn't the easiest city to drive in but I like to think I do a good job. I think I must because non of the above happened in the city. All of those wonderful gestures happened in my own town, or other suburbs of Massachusetts.

I can now say that I will never get upset at anyone on the road again. Accidents happen and people these days are in such a hurry that they will risk their own safety and others just to get one car ahead. What makes them think I'm not crazy or having a bad day as well, that their comment my just put me over the edge. It's so scary to have to think about things like that but its true.

I think the world is a scary place now that I'm older and I'm not sure if it's because "times are a changin' " or what but it isn't pretty.

If you're in the habit of yelling at people on the road, think again. They might be having just as bad or a day, week or month.

Dear Obama, Please stop planning parties and going on vacation, appearing on TV to tell us about your "agenda" and do your job. It's not an easy one, but hey, you ran for it!

Obama to Address Nation Tuesday Night on Gulf Oil Spill

Published June 13, 2010
 | FOXNews.com
President Obama will address the nation Tuesday night to talk about the Gulf of Mexico oil spill as the White House prepares a plan to require oil giant BP to set up an escrow account to pay for lost income to local businesses as a result of the April 20 explosion. 
The 8 p.m. ET speech will take place from the White House shortly after the president returns from a two-day trip to the Gulf. 
The president is expected to address efforts to contain the spill, the timeline for capturing the oil, the long-term recovery and restoration of the Gulf region and regulatory reform efforts at the Mineral Management Service.
"This is an ongoing crisis, much like an epidemic," David Axelrod told NBC television's "Meet the Press."
The 10-15 minute speech will provide more details about a BP escrow fund the president wants established for fishers and trawlers whose livelihoods have been shot as a result of the spill. The administration wants a third-party reclamation process rather than BP managing distribution of funds.
The next day, the president will make clear in his meeting with BP Chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg and others about his expectation of BP's responsibility for caring for people affected by the spill.
"Our mission is to hold them accountable in every appropriate way," Axelrod said.
The speech comes as the Obama administration faces criticism for a slow reaction time to the Gulf spill, including the approval for the construction of barriers and assistance to the states. At the same time, frustration is growing about the slow pace of the cleanup and BP's inability to stop the flow while the estimates on the leak have grown exponentially.

Love Knocked On My Door

And for the first time, I knocked back to see if anyone was really there. Then, all of a sudden, there was another knock and so I opened the door.

The door has been open since Christmas and I'm happy. Happy almost too vague of a word. I feel loved beyond belief, my prayers answered.  In God's stylish way, HIS own way. HE put a beautiful person in my life to take care of me and not let little fights or worries of the world give me reason to run away from our relationship. It's taken a long time for me to get a knock back at the door. My relationships have been more like a game of "ding-dong ditch".  Ben was the first person in a long time to stay at the door and actually come in and stay.

He makes me laugh, keeps me down to earth. He's fun to be with and easy to be around. The most understanding young man I have ever met in my life.  He make me think and even when we get in heated debates that don't seem all that heated, he still makes me smile.

Love, It came into my life in another way, a friend on earth who God put in my path. This is part of my faith and belief in what faith and God is all about. LOVE LOVE LOVE.
