I love this time of year. Not too hot. Every year for the past 14 years the balloons have come to Abilene. Now, it is nothing like New Mexico. One of these days I want to go there and watch all the hot air balloons. It is really big there. Here there is just a few but I do enjoy getting out and watching the balloon glow at night. It is amazing. Check out my pictures.

I one thing that I wanted to see was the kites with the lights on at night. Those guys are awesome. How do they not get all tangled up. It is truly amazing. If it was too windy then the balloons would not have been able to light up. But the kites would have been able to fly. since the wind was no where then the balloons were able to light up. Can't have both.

What's Your Name's Hidden Meaning?

Wow, this is really cool. I am so all of these things. I love my name.

What Penny Means
You are influential and persuasive. You tend to have a lot of power over people.
Generally, you use your powers for good. You excel at solving other people's problems.
Occasionally, you do get a little selfish and persuade people to do things that are only in your interest.

You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.
You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.
At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.

You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the world better than most people.
You also have a very active imagination. You often get carried away with your thoughts.
You are prone to a little paranoia and jealousy. You sometimes go overboard in interpreting signals.

You are a free spirit, and you resent anyone who tries to fence you in.
You are unpredictable, adventurous, and always a little surprising.
You may miss out by not settling down, but you're too busy having fun to care.

Please Donate

It has been a week that I have put the word out about the American Heart Association walk that we are doing in Abilene.

I really need some funds here people. My bank is dry. I am asking you to please donate a little to help this cause.

I believe so much in keeping our bodies healthy. One day it maybe you who needs the help. I know that most of you do not want that but if it happens wouldn't you want to know that you helped put money in the bank for your life to be saved.

I realized that with all the things going on that it is really difficult to try and donate. Have you ever heard of the phase "Pay it Forward?" Do good for someone and in turn will come back to you.

Now, please help me out everyone. Go to this link:

This event will take place on October 4th, 2008.

American Heart Association Walk

Hey everyone, I am so excited about participating in this year's Heart Walk on October 4, 2008. We walk a 5k and able to meet great people. I love this event.

I usually do this event but have not for the past couple of years. I don't know why. Being in the fitness field I believe in this cause whole heartdly.

Here is what the American Heart Association is for:

The American Heart Association is committed to fighting heart disease and stroke and raising awareness of these diseases. As part of our mission, we focus on specific causes designed to help people achieve a heart-healthy lifestyle. Each of our cause initiatives reaches out to the public with resources and information to help them take positive action.

So, I am putting together a team under my company. I am pleading with all my bloggers to view my team page and find it in your heart to donate for this worthy cause.

You can donate online and the minimum is $25.00 I am trying to raise just $2,000. Tax deductible too, but the main reason is to help someone who has had a stroke or heart attack and be able to give them resources to help them live a better life. Won't you help me.

Here is my link:

It is just that simple. Love you guys.

Thank you ahead of time.

Whining Wednesday

As I sit here and try to remember the other day what the heck I was whining about, I am having one of those moments. The ol fart sindrome. CRS! That is so terrible and I am very young.

Oh yes, I still can't remember but as I was sitting on the throne just a moment ago, it darn on me what I could write about.

First of all, I was driving to a little town in Texas called Snyder to meet the people of whom I am going to be teaching a Personal Trainer class hopefully next week. As I was driving along, I really started noticing all of the Wind Energy Fan that are lining the once beautiful West Texas Landscape. They are freakin all over the place. Okay, so here is my question. WHY ARE MY ENERGY BILLS SO FREAKIN OUTRAGOUS? Can you please answer that question. Oh and here is another one. WHY IS MY ENERGY THAT I AM PRODUCING IN TEXAS GOING TO PEOPLE IN FLORIDA? I do not mind spreading the energy, but come on, are people's energy bill lower in Florida now because on the Wind Farms in Texas. Right!

I have some Ocean front property for you in Arizona.

Awe! Doesn't that look beautiful. Come everyone let's go. Let's get away from all this madness.

I mean come on people, I am really getting tired of this BS.

I stopped at the gas station there in Snyder, TX and paid $3.69 and guess what I was excited about that because it was lower that last week by about .50. What is the world coming to, if it is the end, then hurry up already.

Okay, just my two cents worth. Remember it is Wednesday and I just had to vent something.

Please don't get offended, I am all for saving energy but when it hits my pocketbook literally then I get a little upset.

This place looks worse than Idigo, California. I wonder what it looks like now, 20 to 30 years later.
