Let's talk NIGERIA (2)

Hello People,

This is part of the Nigeria Discussion Series.

We need to start getting rid of all the negativity and be more positive about Nigeria. I don't see how negativity is helping us.
We need to stop with some of the Why's, because if we continue with them, we'll keep passing blame around, and there is enough blame to go around and some extra as well. And I know it's weird to say that, since the first step to solving a problem is to identify it. But really I think we've been identifying the problems for a long while now. It would be sad if our children, and the children of our children end up having to deal with some of the same problems that we are facing now.
Hence we need to focus on the "How" and the "When". I just finished reading Dupe Olorunjo's "The Aireginan Dream" about 2 weeks ago, and I totally recommend that you all read it if you can. It not only highlights most of the problems facing Aireginan's (fictional people, but really they are Nigerians), but also shows what they did about it and how they did it. If you're interested in purchasing one you can find a link to that here. You can also read the first chapter here.
"How" is playing your own little part or big part in contributing in your own way. "When" should be now, but realistically it's only going to happen when we are serious.

Have a wonderful weekend/week!

Hello People,

How are you all doing? Fine I hope!!
I'm doing fine too, but I'm still going to be MIA for a while though, because I'm doing a whole bunch of stuff right now.
Special cyber hugs to all those that have been checking up on me ;-)

I'm leaving you with "Consume Me" by DC Talk

Have a wonderful rest of the week !

**I just noticed that the post for last week friday was put up 2 days ago, but I can't put up a link yet, because there isn't a permalink. I'll put up a link to it in the current discussion link (under previous posts) when there is a permalink.**

Hello People,

This post is for all the screams for update.

Sorry I've been MIA, but my world is kind of spinning (Ok, it's not spinning that, but I couldn't think of how else to express myself :-)). Anyways I was reminded by something that happened (sorry I can't go into details), how true the saying below is.
Man {In my case} proposes, God disposes.

That aside, I need me some gumption right now, because I have to make a decision on something. It's not that the decision is a hard one to make since I know what I want in my heart of hearts, but it's not always about what one wants. Don't even know whether I'm making sense to you guys :-). But hey, you wanted an update, so that's that for now ;-).

I wanted to leave you with the movie score "Gumption" by Hans Zimmer, who is one of my favorite movie score composers. But for some reason I couldn't upload it, so I'll leave you with another of Hans Zimmer's movie score. It's from the movie Gladiator and it's titled Now we are free with Lisa Gerrard. To me it's a great score for a great movie. What do you think?

Have a wonderful rest of the week!!

Nigeria Discussion Series: Interlude again

Hello People,

The host for today is Missing In Action (MIA) as of now, and I'm too busy at work to upload any music while you wait (Sorry about that).
But you can always catch up with any of the previous posts HERE, or leave more suggestions or drop a comment if you want to be a host.

I think I should update the FAQ to include - future hosts indicating if they won't be able to host the series the day before it is their turn to host, unless there is some "Act of Nature". What do you think about that?

Have a wonderful day!

Hello People,

How's your week going? Fine I hope :-)

Anyways, I decided to play one of Enya's music, because I find her music calming, and I need that right now. It's "May it be".

Have a wonderful rest of the week!!

Salad weekend

Hello People,

How was your weekend?

I got to do some of the things I planned on doing (no more slacking :-)).
I even got to eat some salad, trying to keep to my new year resolution. It tasted good enough, for me not to feel like I was being punished to eat I think I could make it a weekend affair, to compensate for some of the junk food I eat during the week.

Hopefully next time, it'll have cucumbers and tomatoes in it, but I really need to invest in an egg slicer :-)
I've been listening to Celine Dion all weekend, and its only fair that I share with you, hence I'm leaving you with "Falling into you".

Have a wonderful week!!!

How are you all?

It's the end of the month already, and we are getting into the last month of the first quarter of the year. Time is really flying. Anyways, today I remembered a post I read last month titled Neglected Dreams (which I totally recommend that you read). After reading it, I made up my mind to put in more effort in accomplishing my dreams.......But I haven't. I'm still distracted with little things and have excuses for not doing all the things I've planned to do.
Hopefully this weekend I'll get around to doing what I'm supposed to be doing.

I leave you with "Dream" by Susan Cagle. Just posted it because I love her music and the title rhymes with the title of this

Have a wonderful rest of the week!
