"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

SHOW AND TELL: I love PURPLE plus an introduction

PART ONE
Last Saturday, 6/20, Joey tested for his purple belt (2nd kub) in Tae Kwon Do. He was so nervous. He wasn't worried about the physical aspect of the test. He was worried about the memorization portion of the test. Joey kicked butt! He was the only one in his belt level group that was able to answer all the questions almost verbatim. He is so excited because he only has 2 more tests over the next *8 to 10 months until he earns his deputy black belt.




**************************************************

PART TWO

I also wanted to introduce y'all to my hubby Vic...or more specifically Vic's blog. Yup, I finally got him in on the fun of blogging. His blog is called The Warped Musings Of My Inner Self and it will focus on just that...his warped humor. I can't promise political correctness but I can promise a lot of laughs. Can y'all pop over and say hi?

**************************************************

To see what everyone else in class is bringing to SHOW AND TELL, take a trip to visit the Miss Mel, Goddess of the Infertility Blogosphere.

**************************************************

And, one little fun extra. I have a really cool project going on for a fellow blogger. It is going to be an incredible surprise and if you want in on it, EMAIL ME!


*
it could be a bit longer...you don't test until you are 100% ready.
