Leftover Mashup for Sunday Dinner

Originally uploaded by wysiwysell
I just finished the contents of this plate from leftovers of two separate meals from the weekend and it is a good thing that only one serving was prepared!

The dinner featured tilapia with cocktail sauce, the pasta (made by Stouffer's with not enough chicken pieces remaining), and hush puppies was so good that I know there is not a restaurant nearby with this combination on their menu:)

It really felt like a great culinary experience where cool worlds collide!

I topped it off with Minute Maid Tropical Fruit juice and the single serving is going to make the nap taken in a few seconds not feel so guilty!!

I missed the vegetables though and totally forgot that fresh salad was right in the frig:(

Enjoy the rest of your weekend too!

Left Brain or Right Brain

My wife sent this to me as someone sent it to her.  I initially why is my wife sending me subliminal, naked images of Beyonce turning around:)

Check it out and see which way is the lady turning to you.  To see her turning in both directions is weirder than just seeing one direction.



Which way does she turn for you?

This is really amazing.  Read the information below.  This will drive people crazy for hours.

If you see this lady turning in clockwise you are using your right brain. 

If you see her tuning the other way, you are using left brain. 

Some people do see both ways, but most people see it only one way.

See if you can make her go one way and then the other by shifting the brain's current.


Experimentation has shown that the two different sides or hemispheres of the brain are responsible for different manners of thinking. The following table illustrates the differences between left-brain and right-brain thinking:

Left Brain                    Right Brain

Logical                          Random

Sequential                     Intuitive

Rational                         Holistic

Analytical                       Synthesizing

Objective                       Subjective


Looks at                       Looks at

parts                             wholes

Most individuals have a distinct preference for one of these styles of thinking.  Some, however, are more whole-brained and equally adept at both modes. In general, schools tend to favor left-brain modes of thinking, while downplaying the right-brain activities. Left-brain scholastic subjects focus on logical thinking, analysis, and accuracy. Right-brained subjects, on the other hand, focus on aesthetics, feeling, and creativity.

If you look away, she may switch from one direction to the other.

I found that if I just look at her feet or relax and look at the floor where the reflection shows, she will switch direction!

Great way to locate web2.0 sites by reverse engineering

I just discovered a site via FriendFeed that should help anyone locate a web2.0 site that one may not have found otherwise:)

The site User Name Check was primarily designed to help you locate other sites where a given user name is still available or already in use, but the compilation itself should help one locate web2.0 sites as well.

Otherwise, think of it as a potential branding tool.



Even As An Obama Supporter, I Find This Funny:)

Only in America is it possible to find the following video funny!

But the difference is that many lives have been enlightened and destiny and purpose has been discovered through this election season.

We can join the naysayers in laughing now, but let's fire up our own engines to fully transform America and the rest of the world!

Obama Win Causes Obsessive Supporters To Realize How Empty Their Lives Are

Welcome to a Brand New Era with the Obama Victory!

Needless to say, we either went to bed within a new night or have awaken to a brand new day and era.  US Senator Barack Obama is the first African-American president-elect of the United States of America!!!

As I am now watching the playback of how and why Obama won, I am remembering how this election was won primarily by the northeast, the educated, the young, and the technologically savvy.

The work and healing that has to be done requires that healing and uplifting focuses on the targets of residents of the southern states below the Mason-Dixon line, the uneducated, the old, and those thinking that the internet, cell phones, and web 2.0 websites will simply pass as the fads of the Pet Rock, Rubik's cube, or Beanie Babies.

The coalition of the progressive whites, Hispanic, and African-American voters have forever changed the landscape and spirit of America.

I urge each of us to do whatever we can not only for our families, but for our neighborhoods, our communities, nation, and world.

My political views were initially shaped by dinner table conversations with my parents, but my collegiate experiences at Francis Marion College in the mid to late 80s have had a greater imprint than I really care to remember.

Seeing years ago firsthand scores being changed on intramural athletic fields, tests and examinations being widely accessible within white fraternity houses, the contempt of supposedly cutting edge white professors, and the distinct lines of borders socially drawn while we were yet consistently and feverishly working to improve the quality of life overall for the entire campus and give hope to the minority body on campus has indeed made me cynical in the years after graduation.

But guess what?  Standing where we are today and viewing the new reality of what is upon us and to come, I now know that our individual and collective efforts were not in vain.

Each one of us has been given a full measure of faith and now with that same faith, we will now enlighten the entire world one by one person, place, and idea worldwide.

Any veils and shrouds of possibly being a victim or disenfranchised minority student and American has been shredded and permanently destroyed forever!

There are some who are now bitterly exclaiming that the country has gone down the tubes and their country has sold them out while never asking themselves the same questions in the elections of 2000 and 2004.  To these same people, I ask that you join me in asking them to look around the world and pay close attention to the faces, the souls, and the hope and dreams of people and ask if all could be wrong now of all times?

I now just received a phone call from a friend and former coworker and realized that my entire work history has been virtually under Republican administrations and the years of Clinton's administration have been the most financially rewarding and consistent.

But I would gladly repeat the harsh years of not being able to state for the record that I possessed a MBA degree just to get back to this point of Obama's victory not just for America but for the world!

Opportunity has returned and it is undeniably visible and the entire world is basking in it like sunlight.

Let us encourage one another and see what the limits of new era are and if there are any limits other than what we place on ourselves!

May God bless each one of us and the world and may God bless America!

Here Is My Election Night Activity!

I voted early a few weeks ago, received the free Starbucks coffee today, and made telephone calls in support of US Senator Barack Obama's presidential bid on Election Night!

The date is a critical turning point in my life because out of the experience , the rest of the dominoes in my life have occurred to lead us where we are today.

I am truly humbled after realizing how the dots are connected.

Be blessed!
