People who park in this side of the beach usually go for boating. There is a nice boat launch nearby and a good point to start boating towards little islands nearby such as DEER ISLAND and Ship Island. That is the Deer Island as you can see in the picture below ( notice the trees at the far corner). It's a bit distance from this beach but, you can see it clearly.
If it's spring time, people stay on the beach playing volleyball. This is the view when you are in Maurepas Park.
The beautiful view of the Gulf with teenagers playing volleyball. On this particular day, the wind is blowing and a little bit chilly but, the warm heat of the sun will give you comfort on the beach.
That is a nice Pier which is good for fishing. A place which is good to visit and enjoy the view of the ocean. Bring a sweater though because after few minutes, you will feel chilly.
This is another Pier which me and hubby frequent for crabbing and fishing. We caught more than a dozen of crabs here and a flounder too. So; if you happen to visit Mississippi Gulf Coast, take time to visit Ocean Springs and the beaches. It is truly wonderful to take a little adventure here.

Now, these are onion rings, boilede and fried shrimps, corn bread, mashed potato and a chicken. I honestly do not count the calories when I ate but, I just go eat what soothe my tastebuds. If I am hungry, I maybe can finish these food but, most of the time I don't. I might eat the corn bread and that's it. Do not get me wrong, these are delicious but, I guess I am picky with food.
Here is what I can eat: seafood, rice, mushrooms, baked potato and a little bit of fried shrimp. I also noticed lately that I am not fond of eating fried foods. Baked foods are good for me too. I love rice especially steamed rice. I only eat instant rice in the casino.Here is a healthy salad that I love to eat most of the time at home. I use Italian dressing and creamy caesar salad dressing too. Salads are healthy and that is for sure and I love fresh lettuce.My metabolism is really good so, the more I move, I am okay. We should choose healthy food to have a healthy body and have a sound mind right?

I know there are people in this world who do not like feet, LOL. Pardon me! I just can't help myself but take this picture to describe the moment. The view is truly great and I was just leaning on the passenger's seat. This is a beautiful place to unwind, FREE of charge!The Harbor in Ocean Springs, Mississippi.

This is also the first election that I am FREE from being called to become a BEI. Usually, I was given the task of being a Chairman in a precinct of 200-340 voters. One time, I was given a precinct with A and B group and that was so tiring because it needs two preparation of official returns.
It is not easy to hold the position as one of the BEI's especially if the assigned location is considered as "hotspot". Some teachers risks their lives to protect the ballot box and yet, teachers were accused of cheating.
As a Chairman, I come to the meeting place on time. Did you know that the Election starts before 8 AM but the teachers as BEI report at dawntime? Some actually stay over the place, the eve of the election. The 3 BEI's should be on the meeting place together or else, all the election paraphernalias will not be given to them.
To get the election paraphernalia, the chairman should be around at all times and check evrything in the checklist from the official election returns to rubber band and safeguard the ballot box and keys. Sleepy and tired? YES already! By at least three AM, if you are lucky and early to get out from the line then, you can proceed to the respective precincts and BEI's can rest while waiting for the election. Tough Job huh? Wanna know more? Stay tuned .

Why I reminisce all these? Now that my husband took an early retirement and I am presently working, it took me by surprised that he is now a fan of HGTV! A miracle happened,LOL! Since we moved here in Mississippi temporarily to be with my father in law, all we dreamed is to buy a new property. It fascinates him to see the show about flipping houses. He said he had a good information about how to find a good property. I know a little bit about that already, LOL. I own a property before we got married and finding a good location is a must.
Right now, if I had the time, I watch the show with him. It was really FUN! Try it yourselves! Watch the show and I bet, you will love it too.
Actually, my old boss is working as a librarian and currently in-charged in Audio Visual Room. When there are activities in the University, she is an official photographer among others. We were friends in one of the social network site and I saw her works. It was really excellent and then I came to find out in one of her pictures, she was using a Nikon brand! How amazing is that? Yes, I am saving my money to buy an SLR and the brand is undoubtedly Nikon. It will be added to my collection and I bet, it will become my most favorite gadget by that time.

1. Begin with the Sign of the Cross, 1 Our Father, 1 Hail Mary and The Apostles Creed.
2. Then on the Our Father Beads say the following:
"Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world."
3. On the 10 Hail Mary Beads say the following:
"For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world."
(Repeat step 2 and 3 for all five decades).
4. Conclude with (three times):
"Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world."
Jesus said to Sister Faustina:
"Say unceasingly this chaplet that I have taught you. Anyone who
says it will receive great Mercy at the hour of death. Priests
will recommend it to sinners as the last hope. Even the most
hardened sinner, if he recites this Chaplet even once, will
receive grace from My Infinite Mercy. I want the whole world to
know My Infinite Mercy. I want to give unimaginable graces to
those who trust in My Mercy...."
"....When they say this Chaplet in the presence of the dying, I
will stand between My Father and the dying person not as the just
judge but as the Merciful Savior".

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of 20th Century Fox. All opinions are 100% mine.
Do you want to see a good movie that is entertaining and fun to watch? I would suggest that you watch Date Night Movie starring Tina Fey. Just to refresh your memory, the lead actress is a good impersonator of Republican Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palin. Tina Fey is an award-winning comedienne and a multi-talented actress. Associated Press adored her in fact, she was given an AP Entertainer of the Year award in 2008. If you are looking for a good comedy movie, consider this in your list. The movie release date will be on April 9, 2010 starring Steve Carell and Tina Fey.
Here is the video trailer of Date Night Movie:
Watch the trailer linked above and do not forget to watch the movie on opening weekend.
The story is about a bored suburban couple played by Steve Carell and Tina Fey. Both go on their weekly dinner date but on this particular night, they find themselves thrown into a night of intrigue. As you can see in the trailer, there’s breaking and entering, a car chase and a shootout. There was even a showdown with an underworld boss at a strip club. Both were able to come out of the adventure with some scratches but with a renewed passion to each other. Watch this movie in the theatre near you and have a good time.

•Say sorry if you are at fault and strive to be good.
•Acknowledge that you make mistakes and correct your actions.
•Controlling your temper is a sign of humility.
•When you are caught in the traffic jam, calm down.
•If someone is mad at you, stay out of trouble. Let it cool down.
These are daily incidents that we encounter each day. We might not notice it but, when we are in these situations, we tend to get Angry, Defensive, Arrogant, High Tempered and Hateful. Jesus teaching is nowhere in the picture anymore. Let this day be a reminder that Jesus wanted us to follow him by embracing the VIRTUE OF HUMILITY.

In the afternoon, we usually attend the "way of the cross procession" while some of my cousins were chosen as the Christ persona or the apostles. The procession is done on the streets of our place while every station, a short play is being performed to show the life of Jesus on the way to crucify Him. The procession starts in the church and ends up there too.
Good Friday is a yearly event to remind us that amidst the busy life that we had, we need to kneel down and pray. I am a sinner myself and I need to take a break and spend this day speaking to God in prayers in my own little way. Thanking God for the air that I breathe, for the good health that I enjoyed, for the food on the table, for the safety of my family and friends, for the blessings of life each day, for the waking moments, for the joy and happiness, for the laughters and for all the comforts of life....I thank God for all of these. Of course, I thank Him for the pains that I endure because it made me stronger as a person. I thank him for the tears I shed and for all the heartbreaking moment I experienced in life.
It doesn't hurt your ego if you give thanks to God, right now. Have a blessed Good Friday everyone!
