Phelpsian Feat


While blog hopping this morning, I noticed that most of the blogs I visited have a post about Phelps. Watch TV news, read newspapers, go online and you'll always hear and read about Phelps, which is not irritating to me because I love Michael Phelps. I have a non-stop admiration for him, And there is no comparison in the swimming world for what Michael has done. President Bush told Phelps in a congratulatory call Sunday from his Texas ranch that "if you can handle eight gold medals, you can handle anything." He holds the record for most medals won by a man. Kudos to Olympic multi-gold winner Michael Phelps. I'm glad he is representing the United States. Take a look at his sponsors:

Speedo USA — maker of swimsuits
Visa Inc. — the credit card company
Omega — luxury watchmaker
Hilton Hotels Corp. — hotel chain

PowerBar — nutrition bar made by Swiss chocolate maker Nestle SA.
AT&T Inc
. — communications provider
Kellogg Co. — maker
of Frosted Flakes, Cheez-Its and Eggo waffles
Rosetta Stone Ltd. — language
learning software maker
PureSport — sports performance beverage, made by Human Performance Labs
SwimRoom.com — Internet site for swimmers

Getting a good education can keep us out of financial difficulties

In this fast paced highly technical world of ours a good education is almost essential for success. Yes some individuals are able to get by without it, but what are the chances that one of us will be that lucky. The chances are very slim to nil. So if we want to be able to care for ourselves and our families the best that we can then we need to get the education that we can. Whether it be online like Walden University or actually sitting at a desk and listening to a lecture or something else as long as it provides the knowledge that can get us to the top then it is good no mater what.

This goes for mothers as well. You never know what is going to happen to your spouse. He could become a vegetable because of illness or injury at work or even worse. Then where will you and family be if you can not provide for them. Up the creek without a paddle that is for sure. So take some time and get a good education now while you still have time. If nothing else just to set a good example for your l…

Valiant Watercolor Professional Quality Pen Set 20 Color Soft Flexible Tip. Perfect for Children's Coloring Books Manga Caligraphy Lettering. 100% Non-Toxic and Safe.

One of the things that I love to do aside from my photography is a watercolor painting. I love how watercolor gives life to a simple image. Here is an example of an image that I painted. A watermelon. I painted this image using a watercolor brush pen. This pen has a flexible nylon brush tip which makes it possible to create fine, medium, and bold strokes. How I achieved the fading color in my watercolor paint? I used a refillable blending brush pen that comes with the watercolor brush pens that I used. I get so excited when I see the watercolor effect of these pens. They are so easy to use.  



And when I need to unwind from my day to day activities. I will sit for a few minutes and enjoy the color of these watercolor brush pens using a coloring book that has beautiful and inspirational quotes.
