The Cranky Flyer

I travel a lot and several people have suggested to me that I put together a website about traveling and airports. While doing some research, I discovered there was someone who already had the idea. The site is called "The Cranky Flier." If you have interest in airline, airport or travel news and tips; be sure to click this link: TheCrankyFlier

Mastering Success

A friend of mine named Oloho wrote the following statements on his website. I loved what he wrote, so I decided to share his thoughts with all of you.


The journey of success begins with the belief "I am a winner." Winners have a unique perspective when they're under pressure, because they feel joy. They understand that this is the very thing that makes their stand stronger, which enables them to transform breakdowns into breakthroughs.

In life, when we reach the point when enough is enough, praise God for awareness in seeing reality for what it truly is. Without truth we cannot change our realities, because they are only facades filled with empty dreams. Empty because there is no life-giving light shining through the barricades we have built to protect them.

Breaking through these barriers to shatter old patterns and limitation that no longer benefit us will take courage and determination; to transform negatives into positive lessons that we can grow from and utilize to step beyond what we know and start stepping into our aspirations and purpose for our lives.

Mastering success inevitably means mastering yourself. Allowing your life experiences to be your keys to success. Judging or comparing our journey to someone else's only weakens our own purpose. Mastering self-control and finding balance between your emotions, mind, body, and spirit activates a charge within that illuminates the path which reveals the beauty of oneness.

As we gain mastery of ourselves let your light inspire others to seek their own untapped aspects aspiring to become masters themselves.

Cute things falling sleep

I'm sitting in the Phoenix Airport waiting for a flight to Ohio. While waiting, I was watching CNN Headline news and segment on popular websites came on. One of the hottest sights is called "Cute Things Falling Asleep." The site has Youtube videos of animals, and kids falling asleep. It's cute and funny at the same time. People can actually rate the videos on cuteness and sleepiness. When you have some free time, click HERE.

Stop using the N-Word

About two years ago I posted a blog discussing my disgust with the use of the N-word. I recently received an e-mail from from a lady I met during my travels. The e-mail had a Youtube link for a video by a ten year old speaking about the N-word and removing it from our vocabulary. Enjoy!
