Good Thoughts

I'd like to share two links:

First is a project I found out about from Yoko Ono's site. A group of women is asking people that on today, September 9, 2009 (09/09/09) they commit random acts of kindess. The project is called One Million People for Peace, and this YouTube video has more.

Second, since some of my friends have recently expressed an interest in getting in better shape, I'd like to share a link to a series of entries I wrote on my blog back in 2006. It goes into detail about the safest and easiest ways to achieve fitness, and it starts with an entry called "Alyce's Weight Loss Tips." Rereading it, I was reminded of a few things I need to start doing again, myself. I hope you find it useful!

Cooking with Fire

As I mentioned in my entry on Monday, Labor Day was a busy social weekend for us, seeing friends each of the three days.


The Court Wizard was in town Sunday and Monday, staying with The Cheshire Cat and The Paper. We met at 6 p.m. at the home of The Cheshire Cat and The Paper. In addition to The Gryphon and I, also attending were The White Rabbit and The Dormouse.


Since he was the out-of-town guest, we let The Court Wizard decide where to eat. He suggested a hibachi restaurant. Coincidentally, The Paper also had a 30 percent off coupon for this restaurant, so it turned out to be a great choice.

Music Meme

I got this meme from fanelia_angel:

You can learn a lot about someone by the music they listen to. So here is the game! Hit shuffle on your ipod or mp3 player and write down the first 25 songs. No cheating or skipping songs that are shameful. That is what makes it fun!
