### What makes up 100% in life?...

I received this formula via email from a much loved friends Dad today.
It made me smile and I thought you may enjoy it too.

Beware it's not for everyone...

"Here's a little something someone sent me that is indisputable mathematical logic. It also made me Laugh Out Loud. This is a strictly mathematical viewpoint...it goes like this: What Makes 100%? What does it mean to give MORE than 100%? Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%? We have all been to those meetings where someone wants you to give over 100%. How about achieving 103%? What makes up 100% in life? Here's a little mathematical formula that might help you answer these questions:"

If: A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z is represented as: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.

Then: H-A-R-D-W-O-R-K 8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%

and K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E 11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%

But , A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E 1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

And, B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T 2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 = 103%

AND, look how far ass kissing will take you. A-S-S-K-I-S-S-I-N-G
1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7 = 118%

"So, one can conclude with mathematical certainty, that While Hard work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, its the Bullshit and Ass kissing that will put you over the top..."

### Museum illusions...

What is it that they're looking at?
It's an enlarged image of a photograph that I took of a collapsed spider web in the corner of a room.

This is an image of the photo that I use for my profile.

The heart shape is a stone that I found in the red dirt during a visit to the Northern Territory.

This image is from a photo that I took of the bark of a beautiful old gum tree during a visit to an inner city park. When I look at it, I see a face.

Yep, even my Super Hero made it into the Museum!

So how did I get these works into the Museum?

It was easy and I got the idea when visiting Poetikats Invisible Keepsakes from the current image that she has at the top of her sidebar.

You too can let your imagination run wild with a visit to the Museum and create your own images.

### thank you

Thank you for your generosity Melanie at Creating Nunde for giving me a "Your Blog is Fabulous" award. This was a delightful surprise to receive and in the words of Melanie I too would like to share the love.....

*Lori times five... To me this is a blog that exudes natural beauty. It is a very uplifting place to make time to visit. Lori has the gift of sharing from the heart.
*Blogging Without a Blog... This is a place where people are encouraged to speak there minds and are offered a variety of topics to discuss and learn from. It's Barbara's generous space.
*Statistically Insignificant... A Scandinavian joy. Smart & sometimes funny too!
*Little Chrissy... A creator of beautiful things.

There are many more of you who deserve this award and some of you who already have it and deserve it again. Five is a happy number in my current household and that is why I've narrowed it to five.

### In the pursuit of desire.....

In recent days I've been blog hopping and searching all in the name of desire. I've been trying to write about the need for desire and to share a recent experience. I also wanted to talk about the generosity of two wise blokes.......... Genpo Roshi and Bill Harris, who facilitate the Big Mind/Big Heart seminars.

The Big Mind, Big Heart process is a combination of western psychology and traditional Zen.

Anyway here's where the pursuit led me.....

What the ??

It's Fun!

Scroll down to "Obsession" for details where to create a super hero of your very own.

### to do Lists

The never ending To Do List!
Recently I became aware that I'd created myself a never ending To Do List.
I once visited an exhibition of "Lists". It was truly entertaining reading other peoples lists and it also held a beauty all of its own. Anyway that's another story and maybe just a dream.

So how have I created my never ending To Do List? Simply by not writing lists. I'm not sure why I stopped writing lists. I've noticed that a lot of bloggers post lists. A lot of these lists are admired and are admirable.

When you write a To Do list it generally feels achievable.

To Do lists can be as short as daily achievements or at length a week or so. Generally nothing beyond what you want to achieve in a short space of time. You can cross off what you've done and be left with a clear view of what you need to do.

I'm aware that some peoples lists just add unnecessary stress. They write lists of things to do in a time frame that isn't achievable and sets up a sense of failure.

That's definitely not the type of list I'm looking to create.

When you stop writing lists you don't stop having things to do you simply carry it all in your mind in no particular order. There seems to be no end to what you can add to your list and no clear view of what you can cross off your list.

I favour spontaneity over routine, but I'm not a big fan of chaos.

Do you write lists or do you know exactly what you need to do without putting pen to paper?

PS

I love notes...... especially receiving them

### My Hero

"the Amazing Flying Condor."
Using the wings of an angel and in true Super Hero style, WT at www.dingobarbie.com/thedingo came to my rescue today when I put out cries
for help in regards to creating my very own
Super Hero.

With the use of one word (firefox) it all began to fall into place for me why I wasn't able to do what so many others were doing.......... creating their own Super Heroes.

Thank you so very much WT.

Miricales may not happen where you live, but they do happen in the blogging world!

To put me out of my misery WT created a Super Hero especially for me and here she is..............

If you would like to understand a little more about the Super Heroes & maybe create your own please read my previous post titled "Obsession."

### Obsession

I wanna be a Super Hero!

The Super Hero pictured here can been viewed in full splendour at the delightful blog of
http://www.fatfrumpyandfifty.blogspot.com/

Recently I became aware of a website where you can create your very own comic style Super Heroes. If you are a blog hopper you most likely have come across some of these heroes. That's how I was introduced to www.cpbintegrated.com/theherofactory
It's loads of simple fun and well worth the visit, but unfortunately for me......... after I had created my ideal Super Hero I was unable to save the image so that I could post it for all to see and enjoy.

This really frustrated me! Over and over again I tried to work out how I could save the image to be able to use it here today.
Actually I very quickly became obsessed to achieve the results that I wanted, but to no avail. Do you ever experience times when you struggle to let go of something of little or no importance that you want to achieve?
Even though I've been unable to upload the image of my Super Hero it can be done. This knowledge fuelled my obsession for uninterupted hours and eventually into my dreams.
I woke this morning with one more option to explore.......... buggar that didn't work either!

So no image of my super hero to be shared, but here's another super heroe to give you an idication of the fun that is available to you and the source of my late night frustration.

I leave you with.....

The End............ Got to let it go!
