Powerful Words

This is just one of the pictures that attempt to define some powerful words. You can see the rest by clicking here.

This little girl has a very large friend.


How children perceive their grandparents.

She was in the bathroom, putting on her makeup, under the watchful eyes of her young granddaughter, as she'd done many times before. After she applied her lipstick and started to leave, the little one said, "But Grandma, you forgot to kiss the toilet paper good-bye!" I will probably never put lipstick on again without thinking about kissing the toilet paper good-bye.


This is a really great idea! When filling out your Christmas cards this year, take
one card and send it to this address: A Recovering American Soldier, c/o Walter Reed Army Medical Center , 6900 Georgia Avenue, NW Washington , DC 20307-5001 . If we pass this on and
everyone sends one card, think of how many cards these wonderful, special
people, who have sacrificed so much would get.

Celebrity trainer tips to avoid the holiday pounds

HARLEY PASTERNAK, host of ABC’s “The Revolution” who has trained Lady Gaga,Megan Fox, Katy Perry and Rihanna

pasternack

"When you go to a holiday party, I want you to park your car three blocks away. And walk those three blocks each direction. If you end up at a buffet, don’t make one trip and pile everything on your plate. Go up and take one thing. I always start with vegetables. Then go back for meats. Satiety lags behind ingestion so if you eat slower, you’ll feel fuller and then by the time you go back, you’ll choose less. After the meal, go on what the Italians call a passeggiata--  a walk around the neighborhood."
