Our mailbox is secured in brick

Well, summer is over for all of those children out there returning to school, and I am sure many of us are grateful that some of the vandalism perpetrated by some of these individuals is over. Oh, but what destruction these uncontrolled youths can reek on our neighborhoods. Some of these vandals spray paint graffiti on walls and almost anything that solid. Others like to damage things that are a little bit easier to fix and that is the mailbox. I have heard of mailboxes being blow up by fire crackers left over from July fourth and other exploding holidays. Some even use vehicles to run them down and some even use the time old tradition of using the baseball bat and smashing them to pieces. I have heard of various ways in which people try to curtail this outlandish behavior by removing the mail box after the mail has been delivered. Some have even gone as far filling the mailbox with cement. You can imagine what hitting a mailbox filled with cement would do an arm and I can say that it probably does not feel like being tickled with a feather.

Fortunately for us our mailbox is encased in brick so it is safe from the dreaded baseball bat attack but not from being hit by a passing vehicle. Even though it would crumble at this attack it would do some damage to the vehicle that took it out. Even though we would probably never know who did it it is a small consolation that hopefully their parents would rip them a new one for causing damage to the car.

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.
