Most Used Word

I got a chain email from a friend recently and the content was so interesting and unbelievable that I couldn't help myself to share this on my blog. This is all about ONE word in English language that can be a Noun, Verb, and Adjective, Adverb, Prepositions and some more in the Parts of Speech that you can name. Thanks for Mr. Robarts for forwarding this email to me.

Read until the end ... you'll laugh.

This two-letter word in English has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that word is 'UP.' It is listed in the dictionary as an [adv], [prep], [adj], [n] or [v].

It's easy to understand UP, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wake UP?

At a meeting, why does a topic come UP? Why do we speak UP, and why are the officers UP for election (if There is a tie, it is a toss UP) and why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report? We call UP our friends, brightenUP a room, polish UP the silver, warm UP the leftovers and cleanUP the kitchen. We lock UP the house and fix UP the old car.

At other times, this little word has real special meaning. People stir UP trouble, line UP for tickets, work UP an appetite, and think UP excuses.
To be dressed is one thing but to be dressed UP is special.
And this UP is confusing: A drain must be opened UP because it is stopped UP.

We open
UP a store in the morning but we close it UP at night. We seem to be pretty mixed UP about UP!

To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of UP, look UP the word UP in the dictionary. In a desk-sized dictionary, it takesUP almost 1/4 of the page and can add UP to about thirty definitions.

If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways UP is used. It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don't give UP, you may windUP with (UP to) a hundred or more.

When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP. When the sun comes out, we say it is clearing UP. When it rains, it soaks UP the earth. When it does not rain for awhile, things dry UP. One could go on and on, but I'll wrap it UP, for now . . . my time is UP !

Oh . . . one more thing: What is the first thing you do in the morning and the last thing you do at night?



Did that one crack you UP?

Don't foul UP . Send this on to everyone you look UP in your address book . . . or not . . . it's UP to you.

Now I'll shut UP!
......P.S. - good luck with that last part, 'cause anyone that knows me...knows I can't shut UP....and besides they left out a few more UP's.... After you argue then you make UP...
Before you go out you put on your makeUP...
ok...ok... I'll stop now.

2Straight Talk-September

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Straight Talk for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Hi everyone. I'm back with my latest Straight Talk experience. This happened only recently, and I couldn't help but share with you how happy and satisfied I am with Straight Talk.

During the Labor Day, my family had a special holiday bonding. My cousin from Lansing joined us, along with her husband and their cute, five-year old daughter. It was their first time visiting our place so they needed instruction to get here.

Her husband already studied their route through their tablet's GPS feature, but my cousin preferred to get instructions while on the phone. She had tried to call me more than thrice, but those calls barely lasted three minutes because it always gets disconnected.

Good thing I have my Android on Straight Talk . Its flawless reception ensured that I got to stay on the phone, from time to time, to give them instructions (by the way, the GPS wasn't helpful at all because their daughter busied herself with the tablet.) My cousin was able arrive to our place earlier than their estimated travel time, thanks to Straight Talk.

The secret lies on this amazing smart phones; touch screen phones, and app capable phones with features like voice navigation, camera, video recorder, music player, instant messaging, and Bluetooth®. I got the unlimited monthly service for only $45, and include calls, text, picture messaging, and web. I can even use mine for international long distance at a very low rate. 

If you are kind of stretching your budget and want to buy your young kids a cellphone, well Straight Talk also has reconditioned phones that are available from $10.00 with camera, mp3 player, mobile web access, and blue-tooth capability. Your kids could Call a friend anytime they want to.

Just imagine the amount I saved since I switched to Straight Talk.  I feel richer every month. Try the Straight Talk because unlike other providers offering so-called "quality services" that we take Hook, line and sinker, unaware of the hidden charges, Straight Talk bares it all, it's Everything you need. No contracts, no hidden charges, all quality services from trusted phone manufacturers like LG, Motorola, Kyocera, Nokia and Samsung.

So, folks, if you want to save extra money, try Straight Talk.Visit the following You Tube videos for more information and real customers testimonials.

Finding a Perfume Pick-me-up

Guest post written by Michaela Lewis

There's just nothing to make me feel a little bit better or happier than dabbing on some sweet smelling perfume. Sometimes I even put perfume on before I go to bed because it's just a nice little addition ot end the night with. I dare say that I even sleep better when I put on perfume before I go to bed at night. But I want to try and pick out a new type of perfume. Every few months I get restless and decide to buy a perfume so now I'm shopping for it.

I've been using my wireless internet to shop around for certain perfumes and comparison pricing. I also got a few suggestions from beauty blogs on perfumes that fit my needs and personality.

When I was picking out a new perfume I narrowed it down to Chance by Chanel and Mark Jacobs Daisy before I went with the Chanel one. I just thought that it smelled so sweet, but not really in a floral way. It smelled like it could be a little mysterious, which was what I was after.

Sunny Sunday : Playtime for Sunny

Today, Sunny played on the couch, hopped around like a little bunny. Sunny played with his favorite duck toy. We laid his toy on the couch and squeezed it to make a squeaky sound and Sunny will start chasing it. He climbed up when we put his toy up on the top of the cushion, and when we put his toy back down and he will climb back down or fly back down and jump around like a bunny again. Guess he enjoyed the chase and tag of his toy back and forth.

After playing, Sunny flew back to his cage where his little mirror is and taps on it. Tapping the mirror is Sunny’s one way of saying that we need to put his toy back. When he got his toy back, he would start kissing and talking to him while looking into the mirror occasionally.
