A Butterfly Lights Beside Us

A butterfly lights beside us, like a sunbeam…
and for a brief moment it’s glory
and beauty belong to our world…
but then it flies on again, and although
we wish it could have stayed,
we are so thankful to have seen it at all.

I have always been fascinated with Butterflies and their beauty and believe they are living artwork! I could personally spend a day just staring at Butterflies, and that would be a perfect day full of relaxation and peace.  That would be heaven.  There are Butterfly Gardens in many zoo’s and parks and on many Caribbean Islands you can visit gardens with thousands upon thousands of gorgeous butterflies tickling you as they flutter around you. Sigh, wish I could relax like that everyday.  There are several floral plants you can purchase that attract Butterflies. I try to have them but I do not have much of a green thumb.

I recently was given the opportunity to see and review the ebookFlowers with Wings” by  Deborah Carney and Vinny O’Hare. This is a book full of beautiful Flowers and Butterflys matched with lovely poetry and is a very beautiful and inspiring book. This is an eBook pdf.  The book is available on the Kindle and is not a print book. You can get this ebook through Amazon.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Telemarketers, a discussion on the blog~


“Hello. Yes this is Mrs Penfold, can I help you?”  I never know who is on the otherside of the phone call at times so I try to answer politely. I feel everyone deserves my respect, until…….they release the bitch in me, and that takes a lot. I am fuming this morning about a call I just received, and if it was legit, I hope her boss was listening and her ass is out the door!

This women, with a strong Islander accent that I had to continually ask to repeat herself.  Thing is, I was kinda interested in the service they were marketing for. This women went on and several times I had to interrupt her and asked her to mail me information as I have had several strokes and am sick today and she said that is what I am getting to and continues on with her script and had no concern about what I told her at least 4 times. She , in the end, was raising her voice at me and not listening and I hate when a telemarketer goes off on you, the potential customer, their bread and butter, commission is the name of their game!

So the Jamaican sounding lady at the other end of my phone line, who probably hexed me with some voodoo curse, who actually had my attention and possibly a sale of her service if she had just stopped a moment to LISTEN to me, instead she heard a slam and a dial tone and a few words from me, explaining she should listen etc etc etc. and she could care less.

So telemarketers, if you are going to call me, be prepared. I got your number!

 

Joan's Chatter, Buildasign.com is Awesome!


Are you familiar with Buildasign.com?  I did a banner sign giveaway with them months ago and I have seen other sites offer their signs of some sort.  We all kinda take things for granted, like this company. One might win something from them and don’t share their name again, even if they have done a good job for you!  I for one ran a giveaway and had an extremely happy winner who ordered a banner for an old couple for a swap meet they always participate in and they were so very grateful that my winner wrote them a lovely letter, and she cc’d me and I felt kinda proud myself!

BUT NOW I AM VERY PROUD of them and want to shout out for all to hear, Buildasign.com is great, awesome, giving, caring, generous, and is just the BESTEST company ever!  WHY, you ask?  Let me share with you something that was featured on my morning news show today!  Buildasign.com is offering FREE banners for soldiers coming home and all the family needs to pay is shipping.  Wiping tears from my eyes as my son is in the military and these things touch my heart so much!

So, thank you to Buildasign.com for your generous heart felt contribution to our brave men and women of the US Military who unselfishly gave up years of their lives to serve our beautiful country! They all deserve it but so does Buildasign!  I think the sign above says beautiful words, no matter what religion you are!  Amen to Buildasign.com

YOU ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
