International Woman’s Day



For all of us fine ladies out there: I AM WOMAN

I am woman, hear me roar. In numbers too big to ignore. And I know too much to go back and pretend. ‘Cause I’ve heard it all before and I’ve been down there on the floor. No one’s ever gonna keep me down again!                                                                       (CHORUS): Oh yes I am wise. But it’s wisdom born of pain. Yes, I’ve paid the price. But look how much I’ve gained. If I have to, I can do anything! I AM STRONG! I AM INVINCIBLE! I AM WOMAN!                                                                                                 You can bend but never break me. ‘Cause it only serves to make me more determined to achieve my final goal. And I come back even stronger, Not a novice any longer. ‘Cause you’ve deepened the conviction in my soul.                                                                       (CHORUS)                                                                                                                                 I am woman watch me grow. See me standing toe to toe. As I spread my loving arms across the land. But I’m still an embryo with a long long way to go. Until I make my brother understand.                                                                                                                          (CHORUS)                                                                                                                                If I have to I can face anything!                                                                                                 I AM STRONG!                                                                                                                               I AM INVINCIBLE!                                                                                                                     I AM WOMAN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




“You know why they call it BLACK FRIDAY? Because people are mourning the loss of their money.”

—Ellen DeGeneres



Orange and Black colors are used because orange represents the colorful fall harvest. Black represents the darkness of winter.

The Irish placed candles in turnips to keep away spirits. Over time pumpkins got used instead.

And some Halloween tidbits from Family Circle Magazine Oct. 2011. Chew on this: October 30 is National Candy Corn Day. More than 35 million pounds, that’s 9 billion pieces, are made each year. One kernel has a mere 3.57 calories. Candy corn is fat free. A cup of candy corn has about as many calories as a cup of raisins.

Halloween Humor

“Halloween was confusing. All my life my parents said, ‘Never take candy from strangers.’ And then they dressed me up and said, ‘Go beg for it.’ I didn’t know what to do. I’d knock on people’s doors and go, Trick or Treat, No thank you.”

—Rita Rudner
