Preserving North American Historic Architecture and It’s Landmarks

In recent news, I heard about a few landmarks in Toronto Canada will be shut down like Casa Loma because of Money, and that is a great course of concern for me. This is a big problem and it needs to be addressed. In North America, it seems to me that whenever a landmark gets old, or buildings get old with Historic Architecture, and when buildings get outdated, they automatically think its okay to demolish it or shut it down and build modern looking buildings that destroy a historic building and a site which was once a vital part of history. It is not right to tamper with historical monuments and buildings because when we look back in history books and pictures, people will wonder what happened to those buildings? Historians and those who are becoming historians and studying archeology and other forms of history subjects, it is important to preserve our history and not rebuild something new.

In All of Europe and some middle eastern countries, they are doing their best to conserve, preserve and make sure that artifacts, buildings, museums and other important parts of a country’s history does not fade away and that is exactly what North America is doing. A Hockey Arena the Maple Leaf Gardens were converted to a grocery store and a department store, it is not a cool thing to do, I’d rather it be there as a museum of Hockey history, rather than it being destroyed and used for other things. A lot of people were not happy about that. What I am saying is that, when a piece of history gets destroyed, that is something that Is not good for the future of Canada or the United States of America. Preserving and making sure that these are well kept so that future generations can visit and learn about it through history books, and set up trips to go see these monuments, buildings and actually get a feel of history. I am not saying that each historical monument or building is shut down or destroyed, but I am talking about the ones that are. It is crucial and vital for our identity as North Americans, and that is a big piece of the puzzle. If we destroy history, then what will we teach to our future generations?

This really alarmed me and I felt the need to share it with you all. It is important to raise awareness to stop from these things happening. We all need to do our best to prevent history from fading away and preserve it as much as possible.

Thoughts and Prayers For The Hurricane Sandy Victims & Affected Areas

Hello Everyone,

I’d like to extend my thoughts and prayers to all those affected by the Hurricane Sandy Storm going around in the east coast and other parts of the world. I hope everyone is safe and has enough survival supplies in case things get really ugly. Hope everyone stays safe, and if you do not have to go out, please do not. Stay safe in your homes and if there is a real emergency going on, call 911 or your local emergency number and notify local authorities. For now stay warm and stay safe and secure in your homes. There have been reports of sharks swimming in the New Jersey New York Areas. be careful while in the water and please be cautious. This is a community effort, so please help each other out and be a team. work together, and if there is falling leavings that are being caught around the sewer drains, please remove the leaves and any debris around it and make the flow of the water go easy because there will be localized flooding if that is not taken care of. This is a time where everyone must help each other like everyday. Thousands of flights have been cancelled due to the storms and many airports have been on shutdown and have been evacuated. If it is not important and if you do not have to be out, just do yourself a favour and be home.

For safety precautions, I think it is important that work and school be cancelled to prevent accidents, to prevent loss of life and to prevent danger.

God bless everyone and just be safe.

Sincerely,

I Can’t Wait to Make My Own Strawberry Ice Cream

I have been so excited to make my own ice cream that I want to start with my own Strawberry Ice Cream. When it comes to Ice Cream, I get super happy about it and knowing what I put into my ice cream makes me a lot happier. I don’t know the type of chemicals and preservatives they use in Store bought ice cream, but no more of that. I am going to make this ice cream more healthier and put real fruits into my ice cream. Yes there is sugar involved too, but not as much as what they put in regular ice cream.I am going to make a lot of it and then put it in a different ice cream container and put it in the freezer. I will be getting the ingredients. I just love working with different gadgets in the kitchen. It is where I spend most of my time with baking, cooking and so much more. Its the central place of the house. Anyway, I will be posting the Strawberry Ice Cream recipe soon. Thank you and all the best!

Envisioning My Big Break In The Future – Optimism Is Key To Success

In recent months and within this one year that I have been on WordPress writing blogs and committing myself to a world of writing, and outreaching to the general public of the internet and the world, I began to envision my big break for the plans I have in the future. I have big plans for my life in the next few years and it is important to sort it out and taking extra steps to being initiative in everything. I have time and time again brought up being on Talk shows on Television, I have spoke about getting myself out there and publish my posts to perspective newspaper companies around the globe and I know I can offer a lot and put my cards on the table to get to where I want to be in my life and I believe that each and everyone of us have a passion in life and something that we want to achieve and strive to get on up there with our goals and succeed with everything we have and putting our energy into things we want to excel in. With all that said, optimism is the key to success with an enthusiastic approach, the right attitude, and having the will to do everything in my power to succeed in life.

My passion is ultimately writing, and my passion is to make a difference in the world, getting my gigs on these television talk shows such as Ellen DeGeneres whom I have tremendous respect for, who has such a successful television show and someone whom I have grown fond of for several years now. She is someone I can get along with, and her humor, her personality traits, the way she cares so much for people, the way she helps so many people is something out of this world. When her show finishes, there is a production called, “A Very Good Production” and that is exactly what her show is and it says it all in those 4 words. Meeting her and being on her show would make me the happiest woman in the world. She always talks about bully prevention, she always talks about very important issues in our world, and her monologues are excellently done in a tasteful manner which I absolutely adore with all my heart, mind and soul. She incorporates dancing and getting the audience to dance with her with including them, giving 12 days of giveaways during Christmas and other times during the year. I’d love to one day meet her and get to know her one on one. She is such a beautifully spirited person who touches so many lives and she has touched mine in words, I cannot even express. Thank you Ellen DeGeneres for making life so enjoyable for so many of your fans across the world, thank you for being with us for an hour on Television, for making us laugh, for making us realize the importance of living life to the fullest. I wish Ellen the best with good health and may she smile, laugh and dance always.

There is so much I envision for my life and envisioning on positive and happiness for future is something I really enjoy. I have had a lot of time to myself this past week, and I have been having these scenarios in my mind and dreaming about making it big in the world, and getting myself known out there with good intentions, with the intention of making a big difference in the world with important issues and the prevention of problems in society with bullies, and other serious issues in regards to the well-being of people and the way things are handled. I believe that I can do something good for our world, and I am super confident with my willingness to do my best in society, reach out to those in need of a friend, to those who need someone to talk to, and those who feel lonely to make them feel a part of society and welcoming them to a new world of lovely and friendly people who still exist in our world and there are some really nice people in our world. We just have to look past with what happens and move forward with life.

Envisioning is always a good thing, I do it all the time and now more frequently. I believe and know that all of us can do the same with our lives. Live life the way it is intended and envision everyday. All the best and I wish you nothing but the best.

I Have Missed A Few Days Of Blogging

Hello All, I apologize, that I missed a few days of blogging, but I am back and fully ready to resume to my daily blogging task. I have missed you all and I miss interacting with the world. So much has happened, but I am back to the swing of things. I just want to say that, we all have times where we experience times where we cannot perform tasks due to some personal reasons, but then again when the time is right, we shine back up again and get back up on our feet again. I just want to say never give up and never stop doing what you love doing and go for it. Sometimes we may have breakthroughs and that is normal. We all go through times in our lives where a few days of rest is needed to cleanse the mind, body and soul and back to civilization once again and reality sets in. It was the case for me. I feel bothered because I missed 3 days of blogging, but now, that is behind me and I look forward to spending more days with you and writing more and more everyday from this day forward. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Will be blogging again tomorrow and the next day and everyday…

So Many Talk Shows These Days, But Where is The Quality?

I cannot believe the amount of talk shows there is on TV these days. Ricki Lake, Jeff Probst, Anderson Cooper, The Talk, amongst other TV talk shows. It is crazy, but where is the quality? They all seem to have the same type of genre in all their talk shows and cannot differentiate them from each other.  Too much saturation and too much quantity than quality in my opinion. I like talk shows like “The Talk” Ellen DeGeneres, Marilyn Denis show, Dr. Oz, The Doctors. They have great quality and I really enjoy them as for nightly entertainment I love Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel, and Jimmy Fallon. Jay Leno has the headlines, the jaywalking and everything else which I like. Anyway, today I am going keep this short and sweet to recognize great TV Talk Shows…. Many thanks.
