FryDay Delicious Messy Fun Food: Waffles With Chicken And Cheese – Have A Great Weekend!

Okay, nobody said that this was going to be a food healthy post. If you exercise during the week, burn a ton of calories, and you have your cholesterol and triglycerides within perfect normal limits, once a week you can treat yourself with something like this. I know I do. Otherwise, I would get bored of eating healthy food 365 days a year. But that is me. I have a friend that no way Jose would eat this food, ever, ever never, hahaha. I will eat my waffles and she will be eating carrots and celery. She doesn’t exercise though, not at all. She is vegan and lacking some vitamins and minerals in her last full check-up.

The Soul Of Earth: Mother Nature Part 9 – Have A Sublime Weekend!

mother earth global climate dr martha castro mexico

Climate change is undeniable. There are natural cycles of the Earth’s climate that can be affected by natural factors that are external to the climate system, such as changes in volcanic activity, solar output, and the Earth’s orbit around the Sun.

However, we humans, also are increasingly influencing the climate and the earth’s temperature by burning fossil fuels, cutting down rainforests. Big companies like China Coal, Rio Tinto, ExxonMobil, Shell, British Petroleum, Chevron, Saudi Arabian Oil, Russia Coal, Coal India, are identified as among the highest offenders since 1988.

Nature is the highest law in every country. You will never be able to live above the laws of nature. That means we should learn those laws and abide by them. Many of these laws involve general respect for the living things around us, including animals, insects, plants, ourselves humans, water, air,

Ranting Friday Night: 10 Things I Hate About The Blogging World!

blogging things i hate ranting friday humor dr martha castro noriega mexico california los angeles america
  1. I hate that a blogger follows/subscribes to your blog, you follow him/her back, and then s/he unfollows you, hoping you don’t notice. I really don’t like this.
  2. I hate it that you give likes to a blogger, comment on his/her blog, and they never return the favor, not even at least once!
  3. I hate it that people unfollow you if your political or religious views or the lack thereof are different from theirs. What? Why? Can we be a little bit mature and respect other people’s views? Thank you very much.
  4. I hate it that people want to copy your content to benefit their own website or social media without giving you credit. Geez!
  5. I hate it that sometimes I have written almost the whole blog post and uploaded images and pictures and I click the wrong button and the post disappears! Have to start over or use the autosaving that WordPress left for me.
  6. I hate trolls. Icky internet trolls that pick on people, write hateful comments and are completely unhelpful.
  7. I hate Alexa Traffic Widget It doesn’t matter if your Alexa traffic rank is 1,000 or even 100 when the quality of your blog sucks. I mean, you know that Alexa traffic rank is just a number and it doesn’t reflect the ‘real’ traffic stats.
  8. I hate insane publishing frequency, like more than 8 or 10 posts a day?!
  9. I hate it when I don’t have enough time to respond to all my subscribers comments on my blog.
  10. I hate it when I visit a blog and it has infinite ads and pop-ups. I had a blog like that 2 years ago and it was driving ME crazy, LOL

On a side note, I’m pretty sure that there are some things that you hate about my blog. Criticism is always appreciated (as long as it’s constructive and NOT judgmental in my persona or MY freedom of speech), so do share it as a comment below.

The Soul Of Earth: Mother Nature (Part 7) Have A Glorious Weekend!

UPDATE: I found a quote after I had published the post. I love it, and I want to share it with you:

“One of the first conditions of happiness is that the link between man and nature shall not be broken.”
—Leo Tolstoy

The earth has music for those who listen.

  • Break up beef and toss with onions and continue to cook 2 minutes, add garlic and cook until beef is cooked through about 1 minute longer.
