Tuesday Choices & More About Myself

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! 

I am a strong believer that true beauty comes from within.  I have never had any plastic surgery or Botox done and I believe in growing old naturally.  I don't discourage others from using it if they wish to, but I have noticed some before and after photos of celebrities who looked just fine before any plastic surgery and I find it sad how it worsened their appearance.  I saw a TV program recently with Taylor Dayne, and I practically didn't recognize her!  She has had plastic surgery and Botox, and I could see it immediately.  Personally, I thought she looked fine (and better) than before she had all this done. While I fully comprehend that sometimes plastic surgery can be helpful (such as when a person has had a car accident or anything where it has distorted their appearance), my personal belief is that it is more important for me to work on myself, trying to be a better person, and especially as I get older, I want people to focus on my heart and mind, my inner beauty and not the outer.  I think the best cosmetic on anyone is a kind heart and a radiant smile.  Thanks for listening.  :)

Monday Melody & More About Myself

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! 

I have always been fascinated with, and loved the Titanic...no, not the movie, the real luxury liner that sank on April 14-15th, 1912.  It is my belief that if the Captain had heeded the iceberg warnings, the ship might not have sunk.  Many errors occurred that fateful night of April 14th...they were going too fast, there were not enough lifeboats on board to save everyone, and too many people believe that the ship was "unsinkable."  They put too much trust in an inanimate object, and that was bound to get them into trouble.  Even the lifeboats that left the ship were underfilled due to people believing that another ship would come to their rescue before the ship sank, if it was going to sink at all.  Sadly, there was a lot of competition back then to build faster, larger and more luxurious ships, and not enough focus was made on the safety of the passengers.  Charles Melville Hays, one of the passengers who went down with the ship, made this comment not too long before the Titanic hit the iceberg and sank.  He was referring to the competition among the ship companies for speed, etc.  "The time will come soon when this trend will be checked by some appalling disaster."  He couldn't have been more accurate! He is buried here in Montreal at Mount Royal Cemetery. For more information about him, here is a link. Charles Melville Hays  Thanks so much for listening.  :)
