Foodie Friday (Feb 27) - "The Spin Diva Salad"
Foodie Friday is hosted by Designs by Gollum and I learned about it from Susan at the Southern Day Dreamer. I think this is a fantastic idea and a great way to add a few more recipes to my menu. Click on the logo or the link above to see what other great foodies are ready to be cooked up or served up as in my Spin Diva salad named after my nick name because I'm a Spinning instructor and I get really hungry after a hard workout. This really fills me up and taste delicious:
Beautiful and Delicious! Try it and let me know if you like it the way it is or if you make changes to it, what were they? Maybe I'd like to try your version as well.
Thanks for visiting!

Earth Hour- let's flip the switch together
Excitement is building all over the US and around the world. Here's a quick update on what's developed this week for Earth Hour:
More cities turning out: Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Nashville, New York, San Francisco, St. Louis and the Village of Homer Glen, Illinois. We've heard rumblings from Houston and Seattle as well and would also love to get Washington, DC on board. If you're a DC resident, let Mayor Fenty know you want the city to turn out!
Help us turn out the lights on the US Capitol Dome—write to your Senators or Member of Congress.
What goes on in Vegas doesn't always stay there: Earth Hour officially launched in Sin City at a press event featuring a Panda Bear and Vegas showgirls. The Strip will indeed go dark for the full 60 minutes—the only time the lights have been dimmed except briefly in 1998 in honor of Frank Sinatra's death.
Other city news: Chicago held its official launch event last week, with Mayor Daley again pledging his support. Next up? Nashville, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Dallas!
The city of lights goes dark: Paris and 27 other French cities announced they'll take part in Earth Hour, with the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame going dark. A total of 405 cities in 74 countries have pledged to participate—double the number of countries from last year.
Download a very cool Shepard Fairey poster: The famed Obama-portrait artist has created a series of "Vote Earth" posters urging people to turn off their lights during Earth Hour. Available at www.earthhourUS.org in either the tools or media section.
EH for kids, too: In addition to creating teaching guides for K-12 students, we've also created a special section of the website just for young people. Check it out at www.earthourkids.org, where there's information about how students can promote Earth Hour at their school or within their community.
And don't forget to mark your calendar...Earth Hour is March 28, 2009, at 8:30 pm. Turn out. Take action.

I'm Feeling blue :-(
It could be stress, exhaustion, lack of sleep, having zero control over certain life changing events, who knows but the only thing blue here is me. It's not PMS, at least I don't think so but I need to find my trusted friend and discuss my feelings or I need to call a professional to help me put things into perspective.
I'm so out of it and out of touch from all my blogger friends---maybe that's at the root my issues and how I feel..ha ha!! But seriously, it's been a rough couple of weeks now I need to recover.
Anyway, I will look for the silver lining and know that everyday brings a new sunrise and with it a new day to be thankful for.
My blessings go out to everyone. I will let myself feel what I feel, I will let myself cry and then I will work in some happy hormones with a hard core Spinning workout at noon!!
I'm sure you'll find happier blues at Smiling Sally's blog and host of Blue Monday - go take a look.
