Ladies, many of us know the unwritten "rules" regarding certain questions that you should never ask another woman. It just seems as of lately some of "us' are getting a little too familiar with each other and placing the "rule book" to the side..Example:

I am sitting at my desk and I am in the process of being assisted with a new application that has just been implemented on the office PC by one of the trainers(female) sent to help the firm for the week. Now, as we are working through a small problem another office associate(female) walks up to my desk and she began to small talk a little as we are working. All of a sudden the office Associate asked the Trainer "When Was She Due"? The problem with that question in this particular case is... THE TRAINER WASN'T PREGNANT!!!! Now there is an awkward silence amongst all of us and the office associate excuses herself from the conversation and I am left to pick up the pieces of the conversation along with this ladies self-confidence for the day... Shame on it all. So, for this reason, I want to list a few questions that a woman should never ask another woman. (exceptions are relatives, friends, and close acquaintances)...

1. When Are you Due? (To prevent a similar occurrence of the story listed above as we see, my girl was just "thick" )

2. Is That your real hair? (many of my sistas can/will proudly, fabulously, and elegantly rock their weave, but whether it is theirs or not is none of your business, just compliment the style and keep it moving)

3. Have you gained weight? (Apparently she has if you need to pose the question, but why ask..that's just rude)

Later Babes.....


For the last few years I have been slightly disappointed in the music and "entertainers" that seem to have taken over the music industry as a whole.

So, today I want to post the artist that i feel create great music that touches the heart, mind, soul, and lifts your spirit. These are the artist that I believe are ttruly deserving of all of the awards, interviews, magazine covers, and accolades... So, in my efforts to support the best of the best in music top underrated TRUE SOUL MUSIC..I want to share My Top Ten TRUE SOUL MUSIC ARTIS OF THE YEAR!!!!!

Quote For Today!!!!

If You Don't Like Something, change it! If you can't change it, Change your attitude, but don't complain. Maya Angelou

I am convinced that 2009 is my year to shine. I am sure that we all have goals. I have a few personal goals, career goals, academic goals, short term goals, long term goals..I could go on forever:-) I often find myself complaining about things in my situation, but ultimately, i do have the power to make some things a little better with more work, dedication, and determination on my part.

My point is that one of those goals is to make it my business not to complain, but change any situation that i am not comfortable with or happy living in. I am dedicated to exuding a more positive outlook in general. I remember asking an old employer of mine, how he seemed to come into so much luck/blessings and he simply replied "It is the Power Of Positive Thinking" I am a firm believer that with the good Lord, Positive thinking, more work, less complaining.. i will be shining in no time:-)

Happy Wednesday My Dears With Caramel kisses,

Black History is also America's History (SO RECOGNIZE)!!

Black History is also America's History (SO RECOGNIZE)!!

As may of us know, The month of February is nationally known as "Black History Month". Unfortunately, in our country today many people still go each day without recognizing the many of the contributions, inventions, and developments that African Americans have created to make our world a better place for everyone. After having a recent conversation with my favorite Aunt. We discussed the blantant dismissal of our efforts toward our communities and society as a whole, by other races.

I was reading a local school paper where the students are predominantly White Americans, and the particular articles posed the question "Why is Black History Month Important To African Americans"? My first problem with this question is that, i feel as though the question should have been posed in a manner to inquire as to "Why Black history Month is Important To each of us as an individual"? The second part that bothered me was the fact that many of the students responded so ignorantly saying things such as "It is important to "them", so that they know they did something good for the country"???? "Them"??? Another response was "so, "they" know that they can do anything...

As far as i know many of the African Americans inventors created products, machines, and appliances that the entire world benefits from.

*The idea of a blood bank was pioneered by Dr. Charles Richard Drew (1904-1950). Dr. Drew was an American medical doctor and surgeon who started the idea of a blood bank and a system for the long term preservation of blood plasma (he found that plasma kept longer than whole blood).

*CRUM, GEORGEThe potato chip was invented in 1853 by George Crum. Crum was a Native American/African American chef at the Moon Lake Lodge resort in Saratoga Springs, New York, USA. French fries were popular at the restaurant and one day a diner complained that the fries were too thick.

*CARVER, GEORGE WASHINGTONGeorge Washington Carver (1865?-1943) was an American scientist, educator, humanitarian, and former slave. Carver developed hundreds of products from peanuts, sweet potatoes, pecans, and soybeans; his discoveries greatly improved the agricultural output and the health of Southern farmers.

*DORTICUS, CLATONIA JOAQUINClatonia Joaquin Dorticus was an African-American inventor who received many patents. He invented an apparatus for applying dyes to the sides of the soles and heels of shoes (patent # 535,820, March 19, 1895), a machine for embossing (contouring the paper of) photographs (patent # 537,442, April 16, 1895), a device that helped develop photographs (patent # 537,968, April 23, 1895), and a leak stopper for hoses (patent # 629,315, July 18, 1899).

*DOWNING, PHILIP B.The street letter drop mailbox with a hinged door that closed to protect the mail was invented by Philip B. Downing. Downing, an African-American inventor, patented his new device on October 27, 1891 (US Patent # 462,096).

*GAS MASKThe gas mask was invented by Garrett Morgan, an African-American inventor. Morgan used his gas mask (patent No. 1,090,936, 1914) to rescue miners who were trapped underground in a noxious mine. Soon after, Morgan was asked to produce gas masks for the US Army. For more information on Garrett Morgan, click here.

*GOODE, SARAH S.Sarah E. Goode was a businesswoman and inventor. Goode invented the folding cabinet bed, a space-saver that folded up against the wall into a cabinet. When folded up, it could be used as a desk, complete with compartments for stationery and writing supplies. Goode owned a furniture store in Chicago, Illinois, and invented the bed for people living in small apartments. Goode's patent was the first one obtained by an African-American woman inventor (patent #322,177, approved on July 14, 1885).

*LATIMER, LEWIS H.Lewis Howard Latimer (1848-1928) was an African-American inventor who was a member of Edison's research team, which was called "Edison's Pioneers." Latimer improved the newly-invented incandescent light bulb by inventing a carbon filament (which he patented in 1881).

When will people recognize that "Black history" is apart of American History and should not only be respeted by the African Amerians, but by Americans period!

Dumb Statement of The Day!!!

So, I am minding my own business at my desk and one of my co-workers are speaking way too loudly on their telephone. Anyway, by the way the conversation is going, I can tell that he is being told about a recent health diagnosis of an acquaintance and with no compassion in his voice at all he says "WELL, PROSTATE CANCER ISN'T ALL THAT BAD"......WTF

I am sorry, in my opinion all cancers are "bad". I don't an once of anything cancerous found anywhere in or near me...those are just my thoughts...

The Price for Beauty, At Any Cost!!!!!


By: Jenna Marie Christian

I am sure many of us have heard or read about the very recent news regarding Tameka Foster-Raymond (Wife of R&B Singer Usher) who recently went in to cardiac arrest after having complications from a cosmetic Surgery. This is the second public figure to suffer almost fatally. I am sure many of also remember Donda West (Mother of Rapper Kanye West) Who passed away due to complications from cosmetic surgery. These two unfortunate turn of events just made me even more disgruntle about the American Beauty Standard and the affect it has on impressionable young girls, teens, and adult women.

It is perfectly normal to want to feel as though you are a beautiful person (no arrogance intended). It is second nature to want those around you to also view you as sexy and gorgeous. It is just so unfortunate that Today's Society has allowed the medias ideologies of beauty to saturate the minds of so many, leading many men and women to think that Beauty only appears in the form of Beyonce, Halle Berry, Alicia keys, Tyra Banks, and Heidi Klum Clones. Which Then forces women into a battle of endless insecurity, unhealthy dieting methods, fasting, pills, laxatives, and now the most drastic Cosmetic Surgeries.

In past years Cosmetic product companies have always been a very lucrative business between eye shadows, lipsticks, cleansers, and age-less skin creams, these companies bring in more than $ 7 billion dollars a year. Now women are starting to spend more and more money on cosmetic surgical and non surgical procedures. In 2008 over $5.3 billion was earned in the US for cosmetic surgeries. People are getting work on their nose, chin, eyes, stomach, buttocks, liposuction, fat transfers, and breast augmentations. Girls as young as 18 are beginning to get surgeries as gifts for birthdays and graduations.

It is so sad many women and teens are turning to these surgeries to increase their beauty and sex appeal. I find it so sad that due to this unrealistic standard of beauty it is has become so common to be discriminated against based on your physical appearance by men, employers, and even those that may serve the public. It is common today to see that someone may be receiving better service due to being "beautiful". It becomes even more depressing when I think about how the discrimination goes on within the African American Community alone. It is so disheartening to think about all of the African Americans that play into the Beauty Standards and discriminate against those that view dark skin as unattractive (but I digress).

Women and Young Girls Are literally killing themselves just to fit some bogus beauty image that many of that are seen in these commercials, magazines, videos, and film. I wish we would all realize that we are beautiful. The awesome part to that is that we are all "uniquely" beautiful. I cannot be you and you cannot be me, but I can still respect, admire, and appreciate everything about you without feeling inferior about myself. There is no reason to take such risky methods that may cost a person their life. That is such a high price to pay. There is anything wrong with wanting to be beautiful , shake a few pounds, and do the things that you desire to increase your self esteem, but please try and find safer methods to go about getting the desired results. Also, focus more on accepting yourself the way that you are, loving yourself the way that you are, and all of the extra things that you do will just be an added perk to make you even more fabulous. Don't risk paying such a high price that may cost you your life!!!!!

CAN YOU SPARE SOME CHANGE!!! (An Old Write up of Mine)

Can You Spare Some Change?
By: Jenna Marie Christian

Poverty is a term commonly used to describe the living conditions in poor urban areas. Many Americans who are blessed with a more suitable lifestyle of living often have the misconception that the people living in poverty are there due to their own lack of determination to have more in life. The next time you are asked for some spare change, instead of passing judgment on the less fortunate, take a moment and look at the economy and the various reasons that may have contributed to that person’s current situation. Realistically speaking many of us are only a paycheck away from standing on a corner ourselves. We are living in a city where the rich are becoming richer, while the overworked and underpaid individuals are struggling more.

Chicago’s concerns for the poverty stricken families seem to have fallen by the waste side. The city spends an incredible amount of money funding tourist attractions such as Millennium Park and the Magnificent Mile. All the while ignoring the fact that more families are becoming homeless and that more programs are needed to assist the less fortunate. Gentrification seemed like an awesome idea. Buying and renovating the houses and stores in the deteriorated urban areas, to improve property value and improving the living conditions of those who reside in the area. Unfortunately, the wealthy would restore and upgrade these properties, leaving the lower- income people displaced. The properties go from being affordable housing to over priced condominiums and town home units.

We cannot forget about the unemployment rate and underemployment rate being a factor in Chicago’s Rising Poverty crisis. Companies are dealing with financial setbacks due to the increasing salaries for the CEO’s while the employee’s suffer and struggle to make end’s meat. Stagnant wages, no benefits, no stability, no pension plans and long hours are the norm. Chicagoans cannot afford health care, medical insurance or dental insurance because they can barely afford housing and utilities. Therefore the poor often end up with more diseases and health complications than the average wealthy person. Medical and dental visits usually leave the less fortunate in more of a bind than before.

According to the most recent census, the poverty guidelines household income for a family of 3 is $13,738. A family of 5 poverty guidelines household income must be $20,819. In 2005, the median annual household income according to the US Census Bureau was determined to be $46,326. The median income per household member (including all working and non-working members above the age of 14) in the year 2003 was $23,535. 12.7% fell below the federal poverty threshold while the bottom 20% earned less than $19,178.
The 2005 economic survey also found that households in the higher household income range, with an annual household income exceeding $55,331, had two income earners while those in the lower range had only one income earner per household.
The Chicago Continuum of Care created a plan to end homelessness in 10 years. The plan outlines 3 very crucial points:
1. Expand the range and availability of prevention strategies, increase their immediate accessibility, and improve their long-term effectiveness.
2. Expand the availability of affordable permanent housing, increase its accessibility and transition the existing tiered shelter system into a housing first system.
3. Provide transitional services that ensure linkage to community resources, and increase the availability and awareness of formal community supports.
This sounds very good, but we have to stop building over priced condominiums and displacing the lower income individuals. Chicagoans need more programs designed to assist those living in and living very near the poverty level. We need more shelters and institutions to help educate and employ those that are currently homeless. Chicago needs to increase the wages of the average everyday working individuals. There needs to be more companies offering benefit packages that includes, medical, dental, and vision insurance for their employees and families. We need more organizations like Streetwise that give an opportunity to those in need of assistance and not turn our back on them. The economic state of Chicago seems to be getting worse and the poor seem to be the first to suffer. Every Chicagoan should do their part to ensure that we can assist in decreasing the poverty rate. We may be doing alight financially now, but it could be you and your child asking for change next time around. Don’t wait until it is too late to make Chicago a better place.


Happy Valentine Day Beautiful People...

It is definitely that time of year again, where the women are anxiously waiting to be showered with candy, gift, flowers, and romance from their man.

So, I am a believer that as long as you are being the day with people that you love or doing something that you love. Your Valentine's Day Will be a blessed one. So, Here Are some ideas for all my SINGLE LADIES....and men :-)

1. Allow a male friend to take you out for the evening. (This can be a platonic friend or a friend that you are secretly "crushin" on.

2. Make It A Ladies Night! Get all of the girls, go to the movies, dinner, have drinks, or even hit a club!

3. Host your own Singles Soiree @ your place and invite all of your available friends and family members (make them bring other singles). Have some good food, music, & have fun.

4. Make your parents your Valentine!!! My mom and dad have been my Valentine Plenty of Years and Before they moved to AZ, We made sure we spent the evening together.

5.Fly Solo!! Some times, you best times are spent by yourself doing the things you love to do in your spare time. Watch Corny movies, read a book, have a spa day.. Do what you want It is YOUR DAY!!!

Spend It Appreciating those that you love and those that love you. Don't Forget to Celebrate the Love you have For yourself!!!!

SHAME ON IT ALL- Parents Spend more time with your children




Have you ever had a celebrity crush and all of a sudden they got married on you and you become so devastated as if you all had actually met, had a relationship and the woman/marriage came from no

I swear it just happened to me. My celebrity crush is the soulful singer "Eric Roberson". I have to tell you, When I found out he was married, I was a little I Could even listen to his CD's for Now, I have snapped myself back into reality and I do wish him and his beautiful wife all of the happiness that they can handle:-) I know, It's silly. I get it from my mom, who was really angry when her celebrity crush "Chuck Norris" got

As silly and crazy as it may sounds, It happens to the best of us sometimes. So, I want to know, Who is the celebrity crush that made you upset when they tide the knot?????

HE GOT 3 KIDS.....

3 KIDS!!!!!!!!

Over This Past Weekend. I cross paths with a handsome gentlemen as i was on my way home from the movie with a girlfriend (The Notorious Movie).

Anyway, The Gentle asked if he could converse with me for a moment or so and I obliged simply because he was nice looking, very well mannered and new exactly how to approach a young woman. I loved it! Anyway, He was definitely a humorous, employed, well-dressed and well spoken young man. The conversation went on for several minutes and that's when he hit me with the fact that he currently has 3 children, by 3 different mothers, and one of those children will be graduating from elementary school. Of course I am very cordial and did not show an ounce of shock on my face, or in my responses, but in my mind that was a "deal breaker" for me. I mean I am only 26 years old. The last thing I want is to be involved with someone who has a few kids and nearly have my age...NO THANKS!!!!

Needless to say, I will be putting him in the "friend box". I found this encounter so ironic simply because I had just read a very interesting blog post on posted by The Black Bond and being the vocal and opinionated young woman I am, I responded to his post stating how individuals should focus more on character instead of material possessions. Now granted my turn off had nothing to do with materialistic or monetary issues, I still felt a little guilty by dismissing the brother due to being a father of 3. So, I kinda feel just as bad as those I discussed in my response to black bond. You all should check his post. Happy Monday!!!

Quote For The Day: By Sir Winston Churchill

"A Pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; An Optimist sees the Opportunity in every difficulty."-- Sir Winston Churchill

This Year is My year to reprogram my way of thinking (to a certain extent).

We all have to endure a great deal of difficulties and challenges as we navigate through this journey called life. Unfortunately some situations can just seem as if they are way to much to bare. Everyone has methods as to how they will handle adversity. For me, I usually complain, stress out, worry, eat, and stay to myself, but instead I will take the advice of Winston Churchill and be optimistic about the unexpected trials, stumbles, and falls that life may toss in my path. We all are familiar with the term "Life Is Short" and "it" truly is. The Fact is "Life moves very fast". It seems as though it were just yesterday when i was celebrating my 18th and 21st birthdays, but those days are far behind. So, I will do my best to enjoy each and everyday. It is truly a choice to allow certain our circumstances to dictate our mood. Therefore I am choosing to be Optimistic and Stress Free... Thanks to the Shared wisdom of Winston Churchill :-)

A Little About Winston...Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill, KG, OM, CH, TD, FRS, PC (Can) (30 November 1874[1] – 24 January 1965) was a British politician known chiefly for his leadership of the United Kingdom during World War II. He served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955. A noted statesman and orator, Churchill was also an officer in the British Army, a historian, a Nobel Prize-winning writer, and an artist.

Everything Comes to him who hustles while he waits...

Believe it or not, that quote was said by the great "Thomas A. Edison"

** I chose this quote today because as many of you know, that I am very focused on becoming more "In Tune With My Star Player" (check the 2nd post) and advancing in my career. I've come to realize that many of the my goals with require a great deal or hard work, tenacity, strength, sacrifice and one of the most important parts is patience. The Good Book Speaks About "Patience" being a Virtue and man do I wish I had more of it! The hardest part of this journey toward success for me seems to be "Patience". After reading and pondering on the quote by Dear Tom. I realized that Just because I am waiting(patiently) for one dream to makes its way into fruition does not mean that i have to be at a complete halt, becoming frustrated. Thomas Quote made me aware that as long as i continue to work toward my goals and continue to work toward my goals. I can receive and achieve everything that I desire. Thanks Tom!!!!


Thomas Alva Edison (February 11, 1847 – October 18, 1931) was an American inventor and businessman who developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph and the long-lasting, practical electric light bulb. Dubbed "The Wizard of Menlo Park" by a newspaper reporter, he was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production and large teamwork to the process of invention, and therefore is often credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory.

Side Bar- So Random... RIHANNA!!!

I just saw this photo! I have to tell you... I think Rihanna has to be one of the most beautiful girls on the planet earth. I mean, I can't hate on her at all! Work It Girl... Work It Ri
I got to get myself in a gym and slim fast shake quick... Yall know summer is right around the corner and I want to be HOTT Like Ri

Etta Got A Beef With Bee-Tawn-say!!!!

So, Apparently Miss Etta James Was not thrilled that Beyonce chose to sing her tune "At Last" during the inauguration ceremony.

Now, I am a Beyonce fan even though I am a bit tired of, but Do you all think that is may have been a little "Hate" in Etta's System or Is it her right not to have wanted her song performed during inaugaration.
The Story is That during a recent show in Seattle, WA on Jan. 28th, 2009 Miss Etta was quoted saying things like " She Gone Get Her Ass*d Whooped" Referring to "beyonce" The Audio can be found on
Personally, I Think "Bee" delivered an "okay" performance, but I would have preferred to see my home town girl Jennifer Hudson!
Anyway, I would love to know your thoughts!!!

In Tune With My Star Player!!!!!!

I am a huge fan of Katt Williams. I personally feel as though Katt Williams is one of the funniest men on the planet. Although sometimes his material can be a bit crass, many times he does have a great deal of useful material and positive affirmations that should be applied to our everyday life. I recently just had the opportunity to view his last stand show that aired on the Comedy Central Channel called "It's Pimpin, Pimpin". The show in it's entirety is truly hilarious, but the one thing that stayed with me throughout the show and even as i sit here and type this posting is the portion when Katt begins to discuss being "In Tune With Your Star player". In this story line katt discusses (with a great deal of humor) how many of us place way to much thought into what other people may think of use and how many times we focus way to much on the business and personal affairs in others. The bottom line is to place more of that attention on our own well-being and we will definitely thrive in all areas of our life. Thus being in tune with our "star player".

After viewing that footage and laughing hysterically, I was forced to do a self-evaluation of my own situation. It made me realize that I should definitely be more pro active in regards to creating the life for myself that desire so desperately. I am guilty of pushing my goals aside to cater to others. I am guilty of being concerned with how people may perceive me. I am guilty of being all in someone else's situation and need to get my own business straight. I am guilty of having a little hate in my system when I see someone reaching unimaginable levels of success, but I am stuck at a stand still. I have definitely been out of touch with "Me". That will not be the case any longer. I am now focusing on being in "Tune With My Star player" to make sure at the end of the day I want to honestly be able to give myself the MVP award:-)

Happy Wednesday My People!
