Take the challenge and find a WIN!

thank-youI’m a girl who loves and often hails fantastic television advertisement via commercials like Geico, or the Dad and Daughter commercial. It’s not often that you find good laughter or bold encouragement done for the good of the whole with deeper intentions to better your soul. The latter of the two driving forces inspired this piece. I was so encouraged after seeing this commercial today that my heart was warmed and I smiled broadly at the prospects of tomorrow.  It was about… well, never mind my paraphrasing it, let me show it to you:

Are you down?

happy divider

What do you think? Care to Take the challenge and find a WIN!
Just who produced this awesome commercial fringe? would be the people to applaud in length
for yielding the view of sharpening up our countrys strenghts.

A winning corporation is built by incorporating the best talent.
Though being accross-the-board in fairness has long beeen a move that remains too valient.

It is not so much of a noble move as it is genius; an awesome use of professional wisdom.
How can you win – steadying yesterdays spin when NEW talent is at an all time #Yum?

Dare you step outside of the box if you are in the position to make such a move?
Genius isn’t ‘Doing the same thing,’ genius would be succeeding with a new groove.

Apple learned first hand
and post their knowledge they employed the best and brightest minds.
Intel, Google and all the likes, were like, “Yikes! We can’t be left behind!”

Who doesn’t want to find and employ a Steve Jobs?
The only hurdle is some of the brightest minds dress like slobs
and your companies HR department wouldn’t give them a second look.
Apple looked within, passed the outer grin and built a productive talent book.

I’m just saying that sometimes your brightest minds come in the strangest boxes,
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee, unity is sweet and GradsOfLife ROCKED THIS!

No longer do you have to compromise on speed when you buy a sleek, thin laptop. Ultrabooks come with the power of 2nd Generation Intel Core processors (, and they’re less than 1-inch thick.

There are a few that come to mind off the cuff: Samsung Series 5 BPU530u4b-A01US with 2nd Gen Intel Core i5 processor, Dell XPS13-0015SLV with 2nd Gen Intel Core i5 processor, Toshiba Portege with 2nd Gen Intel Core i3 processor, and the Asus Zenbook UX31-RSL8 with 2nd Gen Intel Core i5 processor.

There are 3 things to look for when shopping for a new lap device: Performance, Style & Design, and Responsiveness.

PerformanceGreat multitasking power, supports 1080p Full HD movie downloads, HDMI outputs so you can watch on your HDTV and long battery life.

Style & Design1-inch thin. How much less bang do you want for your buck? lol!

ResponsivenessSSD’s. Not to be confused with and means nothing close to STD’s. SSD’s are a quick responsive asset. SSD stands for solid-state drivers.

Recently my 17″ MacBookPro with all the fixins broke down on me right in the middle of a MOTIONS class. Lucky me, I had to take a trip to the Apple store and take a seat at the Genius Bar. Nervous for sure. Turns out my video card was bad and unresponsive. The tech was so laid back, quick in diagnosis and cool. Then he said, the cost to repair the video card is $526.50. Knowledge is power – sure, but I just felt naked. Desperate and naked. Thinking (nearly aloud) ‘where in the world am I going to get that kind of dough from on a Tuesday night?’ another tech walks up, analysis the findings and says, while it’s true my warranty is up, (I purchased it in 2008), the replacement would be at no cost to me. Then he jargon’ed tech savviness to the other tech. I signed a contract of repair and was out of there. 7 days later, I’m back with my baby. Muah! She works like new. The Apple techs also cleaned my laptop like NEW! When I turned it on, it had a scuff mark atop of it. When I picked it up, I almost wanted to put it in a box, velvet, or at least wear gloves because it was so clean.

All the same, I now see the importance of having another lap device to lean on, to share the work load with besides my main piece. In her absence I used a DELL. It rode hard, but I missed my Apple. However, in these economic times my budget does not look like Apple money. It’s kind of sounds like it’s screaming pc money. That’s why I’ve been following pc technology of late.

So I ain’t mad at INTEL for doing their thing
and anchoring at the core of many scenes.

I’m not mad at APPLE for being good to me
as I reel this Final Cut legacy.
I am not mad at all.

I am however concerned that
Once you go Mac – you never go back.

a technology she with a bit of a researching knack.
Can I go back?

So Rick Perry is heading up the Republican candidacy in the race
and Michelle Bachman is now pulling a real dismal last place,
and Mitt Romney is humming along just fine –
likely not studdin’ the polls until debate time.

Preserve the mind; I’m loosely watching the race,
Though entertaining debates will soon be in our face.
And rightfully on the sofa, I will take my place
but until that day – I will yield a real loose chase.

Politics – Schmolitics it’s all fun and games
to see who will speed to be the Republican seed
& end up getting maimed?

There’s fun coming up, though at the present all I can think about
is how hot this TEXAS weather is and trying to survive this drought.

In my back yard, I have a 15 foot classic palm tree of West coast pride,
that is surely suffering the most – it’s duly leaning (hard) to the right.

I have an automated sprinkler system in my back yard picture,
though I haven’t been able to utilize it due to water restrictions.

About that beautiful deck that we’ve erected a few feet out into the yard?
Under it is a cracked and dry ground – looks like the desert. Ooo Lord!

It actually looks as if the cinder blocks are going to fall right through the cracks.
I don’t entertain on the deck during heat waves like this. My melanin’s too black. 🙂

We need rain – and I pray for it often.
Perhaps I should do a dance in my kids moccasins.

Have you seen those ugly little shoes? Teenage kids think they’re a fashion gain.
All I ever think about when my kid puts hers on is….can she dance and make rain?

It’s silly
but really
Have you seen these shoes?
They remind you of “pray for rain” or “snooze”.
Yes! They look like house shoes too.
Complete with fir lining to not let your foot cool.

I can’t wear them, but then I can’t do a lot of things,
I can write, produce and even act, but frog up when it’s time to “SING”.
Honestly. I don’t belong on GLEE.

I’m a technology lover. Y’all know I love to gadget dibble and dabble,
so please let me render a big hug to the resignation of STEVE JOBS at Apple.

Steve has been sick for a while – he’s got issues with his pancreas and liver.
I pray God he’s not in pain – for he’s been the biggest technological giver.

To lose Steve made investors quiver. But we’re going to be okay
So far he’s resigned as CEO but his CHAIRMAN status is still in play.

Also, I heard about the congestive heart issues of a very dear soul to me;
She is in need of central A/C to minimize the health effects of this damaging heat.

If there is anyone that can aid her in her time of need
Please FACEBOOK MESSAGE the saint who put “the plea” in the streets:
Her name is Lynn aka GG.

Brotherly love get’s a bad rap as the saying often rings untrue,
but you know it is real when another (unselfishly) goes to bat for you.

So what have you been up to, how’s the weather at your place?
Are you watching the news and remotely following the Candidate race?

Are you as busy as me with your career on fire?
I’m doing double time, because my kids no longer for hire.
She worked with me this summer, but that’s all gone away.
As of August 22nd when the 1st day of school came into play.
Poo! & Yea!

I do have my solitary days back – though it was surely more productive with her in it.
I’m Qui
Wishing a Happy pre-Friday to thee, and encouraging you to go out and win it!
