Random and Pandemonium.
What life is really all about.

"Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still
and watch the leaves turn."

- Elizabeth Lawrence

This is the view from my living room. The picture cannot even capture the beauty of this Japanese Maple.

1) Help raise money for UNICEF in October. Text "TOT" to 864233. A $5 donation for the purchase of food, immunizations, and other necesseties for kids around the world will be added to your cell phone bill.

2)More than 35 million pounds of candy corn will be produced this year. That equates to nearly 9 billions pieces- enough to circle the moon nearly 21 times if laid end-to-end.

3) Can you guess the real names of these stars?

Pink, Rih.anna, Ca.rmen.Electra, Natalie Portman- ANSWERS

A. Tara Leigh Patrick=Ca.rmen Ele.ctra

B. Natalie Hershlag= Natalie Portman

C. Alecia Moore= Pink

D. Robyn Fenty= Rh.ianna

Thanks for the beautiful comments you left on my blog. They were very heartful and uplifting. I appreciate it.

The maple is GORGEOUS! We are so blessed to have such beautiful things in our world to look at and enjoy.

That is way too much candy corn. I dislike that stuff. Blech! Sorry if you like it. You can have my share. :)

I've noticed a lot of trees here went right from green to red. What happened to orange?
