ha ha I love 007 - my maiden name is Connery so it fits.  My friend Dave Barry tells me I sound like some religious icon when he says Hey Sooz (Jesus) lol.  We are such a funny bunch aren't we.  I just finished lunch with a smoking friend of mine and was actually able to walk away when she lit a cigarette and offered me one.  Yes, the crave was there but I also knew it would disappear in a minute or two once I walked away and replace it with a mint (I had a glass of wine at lunch too!).  Aren't you proud of me :)

Go Sooz!! That is awesome! And those mints definitely help me! I have a bag in my purse, and a bag in the car!!! My fiance' tried to take my last one the other day and I told him "No way!" ;)

Edited: Actually was to be TO ALL....

 

HELLO, MY AUGUST CHAMPIONS!!!

We are indeed. 'August' is more than just the name of the month.

AUGUST means: Distinguished, venerable, eminent, illustrious, celebrated, prestigious, honored, acclaimed.

CHAMPIONS. 1. A person who has defeated or surpassed all rivals in a competition. 2. A person who fights or argues for a cause or on behalf of someone else.

ALL of that, DOES indeed apply to us.

We should always keep that in mind when we speak of or about us.

Be humbled about it. For it is a just and honorable cause: FREEDOM. Personal and social freedom.

Notice the name is plural: TOGETHER.

 

Peace and blessings on our new home.

Hi there Youdi, I don't feel I've said hello to you very much.  You seem to be doing really well and I like the way your second dot appears to be growing from the first one - very clever.

 

Sooz :)

Hi 007,

I am very proud of you.  Every time we face a trigger head on, it loses just a bit more power over us.   Walk away or run if you have to.

So, you are now 007 Connery:)
