Top 10 Born in Boston Area

If history fascinates you more than football you might want to check this out. Perhaps no one from Boston will read this list over the weekend but maybe in time.

These men and one interesting lady are all "Patriots".  Google them. I did not have enough time to do a description about them.

There is currently a series on the History Channel called "Sons of Liberty".  It highlights Sam Adams role in the American Revolution. Some historians believe the program took some liberties with their depiction of Samuel Adams and I would like to add all the commercials were a bit taxing but it is a good background to the start of the colonies standing up for our independence. Not all those listed below had a highlighted role in the show but bear honor and should be included in your search for further information about our friends from Massachusetts. I came across these names while I was looking up the main characters.

Sam Adams

Dr. Joseph Warren

Dr. John Warren

John Hancock

John Adams

Mercy Otis Warren (pen name A Columbian Patriot) She is real interesting for a woman of the times.

James Warren

Thomas Crafts

Paul Revere

Ben Franklin

Here is an additional interesting link and it is current plus it has a Facebook page

Personally I am watching football, I already saw the series.  It's a good one. Who am I rooting for?  The winners of course, I can't wait for the battle.

Top 10 Power De-Clutter Mix

The week of January 25 Moving forward from deflate to delete is International Clear Out Your In Box Week and believe it or not Clean Out Your In Box has a Facebook page. They do offer tips if you are interested. 

I try to clear out my obstacles each year and I like to start with inspiration and music. I offer ideas of  a little mood music.

1. Believe  (lyrics; I don't need you anymore) Cher

2. Hit the Road Jack (applies to electronics) Ray Charles

3. I Can't Make You Love Me Bonnie Rait (works with fashions). It never looked quite right on you.
Caution this song does not work with relationships, it is a heartbreaker.

4. Irreplaceable (To the left To The left) Beyonce (applies comfy sweat pants, once the elastic gives out, you should give em up). Everything and everyone is replaceable, sometimes we forget that and should be grateful for what we have.

5. You Lost That Loving Feeling The Righteous Brothers (applies to snug clothes)

6. I Need You America ( This song is counter intuitive for this project, I don't recommend BUT it is a great song.)

7. Can't Live If Living Is Without You (some things you just have to keep) (Yes you can, just try it). This can certainly apply to electronics if only for a day or even an hour. Harry Nilsson

8. Free Free Set Them Free If You Love Somebody Set Them Free Sting

9. Learning How to Live.... Without You in My Life Lucinda Williams

10. Many Too Many Genesis

Clear out the clutter make room for the future.

Top 10 Things That Mysteriously Accumulate

Snow, it can happen overnight!

Junk Mail the old fashion way, in your mailbox.

Spam and sexual innuendo from people you never heard of.  You know not to open those right?

Hangers in all sizes and shapes.  I remember "1" time buying a six pack, they all matched.  Did the pro-create?

Gloves that don't match with the finger chewed off.  Who does that?

The fuzz aka lint in the dryer screen.  How are there possibly any fibers left on some fabrics? They shed bad.

Dishes in the sink.  Who had a party in my house overnight?  I didn't hear anything.

Dust accumulates on everything. Where does it come from?

Wrinkles and new lines on your face.  I counted, that was not there yesterday!

Pounds are not your friend and neither is the scale. How can you possibly fluctuate 3 pounds in one day and it ain't deflating?  If it were, I would weigh myself every 15 minutes.

Things can just happen mysteriously.
