This video below is a video my Italian teacher showed us. Do you ever find that this is how you feel wether you are in a different country or your trying to learn a new language (if you havnt't already seen it, then you'll find out in a minute)? I'm taking Italian as an Elective in high school. And this is how my peers and I feel about this whole language thing. Currently I am trying to find a local news report from Australia about an oil ship and how its front end fell off. Don't be intimitated by "Mikes" face on the front. This is a 'G' rated film. To take the music off at the playlist, go to the list and push pause. When your done, just push play on the list and it should start playing again.

One Semester of Spanish - Love Song


The Project


This is the project I have been working on for the past day. But as you can see, I had some help. That is my sister helping me knot the ends of the blanket. My dad is very sick in the hospital. I know what he has, but I can't say. But you can know that it isn't as serious as it may have been. What he has is very common now a days. He will live though (thank God!!!).
This project is very easy to do and kid friendly. No sewing needed. All you have to do is have two fleece fabrics ( the same size) one on top of the other. No need for ironing. Cut the edges 3 inches long and 1 inch wide, all the way around the whole blanket. Then knot the two strings (the one on top and one on bottom) together twice. That makes a double knot.

Give it to anyone. They'll love it.
My Grandma gave this idea to us a few years back. We all got one for Christmas, and everyone loved them. My mom has made one or two of them. This is my first one that I have made almost by myself. Everyone can help. In my situation, my sister, my brothers, and even thier friend helped too. I guess that just goes to show how much fun it is to make it.



Why isn't there any peace?

No love, all just put to lease.

Can't we get along?

Sing one happy song?

Haters are the gators.

And love is for the dove.

Were only ment for good.

And if only we should,

ever go for more,

what would reach the shore?

A hug, a high five, a smile, a good release ?

I don't know.

But what I do know,

this is Peace.

This Weeks Groovy Recipe #2


This weeks Groovy Recipe is Toffee Apple Dip. In this recipe, you can add almost anything to it. You can eat it plain (without toffee bits). It tastes pretty good both ways. But don't just take my word for it. Try it yourself.And the best part about it is that it takes only 5 minutes to make. No cooking needed.

Toffee Dip


3/4 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 8 oz. block cream cheese (1/3 less fat)softened

3/4 cup toffee bits (Skor or Heath Bars) 4 oz.


Combine the first 4 ingredients. Beat at medium speed with mixer till smooth. Add toffee bits and mix fairly well. Cover and chill.

Apple Prep:

Slice apples thin(well enough to scoop with) and coat with pineapple juice. This keeps apples from turning brown. Serve with dip.
