“Infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for it to happen. Make it happen”.

Quote by Bradley  Whitford, Actor, born 1959 .

During Spark People’s 5% Spring Challenge, during one of the week’s, the focus of the week was for “ Movement, and this was totaled each day on the team’s site.
Movement to me is getting out and doing things. By engaging in activities, it’s a way of connecting with people, finding out their stories and impact on their life, how it can be connected to you. All of these movements is a learning in the process, your mind adds what you learned to previous learned knowledge and assimilate into life goals.

On a Saturday in May, there was a special event called “ AIR, “ Attitutude in Reverse” , the  website: Air.ngo

Breast Cancer Awareness month in October, Recipe with Pink theme

Breast Cancer Awareness month in October

Life Is Beautiful-La Vita e Bella Weblog

Think Pink !  As many of you know, October is breast cancer awareness month. 

There are several places of business that are participating.

For those of you who have a Panera Bread franchise in your state:

Panera Bread is selling “Pink RibbonBagels” and donating twenty-five cents for each bagel sold to a specific Cancer Instituteor organization in that region.

I stopped by Panera’s last evening after work.   The bagel is baked in the shape of the ribbon used for Breast cancer awareness. Flavored with cranberries and dried cherries and cherry bits, it is delicious toasted.

Estee Lauder and Clinique each year sell products with the pink theme.  Stop by your favorite department store to check it out.  They usually have little pink ribbons to pin on your outfit.

Has anyone heard of a recipe themed contest .  With pink theme.  Possibilities could be endless.

This got me looking at my bookshelves with new eyes and made me realise how narrow my reading choices were. So in recognition of Australian literature’s […]
