Totally cool and interesting. Worth a reblog or share. 250 million years ago? You don't say!!


#EarthDay: Geoscientists have identified a chunk of Africa stuck onto the southeastern United States.





A long mysterious zone of unusual magnetism that stretches from Alabama through Georgia and offshore to the North Carolina coast appears to be the suture between ancient rocks that formed when parts of Africa and North America were pressed together 250 million years ago. ...

Update to My First Blog Post at My Blog Stop!

Three years ago during the first week of the month of April 2014, I was just starting up this blog. 

Don't laugh at me, laugh with me. 🤣

If you view my post ~ MyFirst Blog Post at My Blog Stop! Welcome! ~ you will see that out of all of my attempts at publishing blogs, only one blog is still standing as of 2017. Yep yep. All of my Tumblr microblogs took a tumble and went by the wayside. 😞


If at first you don't succeed … cry cry cry … and then try try tryagain!!



Created a brand new Tumblr account and started up two microblogs: FoxNet2017 and FoodWays2017. Sharing two sample posts below.



Created a foodie blog using Blogspot to complement/supplement my affiliate marketing website:






Kept my membership with the Blogjob (BJ) community and continued to share advice for newbie bloggers via My Pain, Your Gain.



Since the BJ community allows more than one blog, created a second blog for affiliate marketing purposes and called it My Shopping Channel.




Still maintaining my Google Plus business page (or brand account), "Home Business Works"; and Google granted me a custom URL for the page (in place of the numerical ID). 


That's the update!

Hollywood Legends : Iconic Female Celebrities: Marilyn Monroe (1926 - 1962) (Guest Post)

Today, Marilyn Monroe would be 90 years old, but the diva passed away in 1962. Many people know her celebrity persona, and she still is viewed as an icon of beauty and femininity. But let’s take a look at her off screen personality. Here are seven (7) biographical facts. 

   

This marvelous timeline of photographs ~ "A picture of Marilyn for every year she was alive, 1926-1962." ~ was shared on Google Plus by Divine Riggio : Vintage Photographies of Human Life 







1. Marilyn Monroe was born June 1, 1926, Los Angeles, California.



2. Ms. Monroe feared that viewers would think of her as about a "frivolous fool", so she studied and rehearsed earnestly at various acting studios.



3. Despite the fact that Marilyn Monroe is considered a sex symbol, she confessed in her diaries: "I was always very physically clamped. I have always been sure that something is wrong with me."




Image credit:  Another photo shared by Divine Riggio on G+ ~ "A teenage Norma Jeane, later known as Marilyn Monroe. Circa 1940." 


 



4. Marilyn Monroe loved to read. More than 400 books were in her personal library. She did not finish high school and felt the need to continue her education on her own, not only to quench her thirst for knowledge but in order to be on par with others who were blessed to complete a formal education program.








5. Before becoming a famous actress, she worked at an aircraft factory, during the World War II. Her job was crucial, She was checked the serviceability of parachutes. One of the photographers, who was looking for "fresh faces" noticed her there. The rest, as they say, is history.



6. Marilyn Monroe ate very little and could spend an entire day drinking only orange juice. Yet she has never been skinny, according to today's “perfect size” standards (say size 5 by comparison to today's slim petite almost emaciated models who wear a size 2).







7. In order to become the wife of her third husband, Marilyn Monroe converted to Judaism. She was fond of Arthur Miller and trust him a lot. It was his betrayal that completely undermined her faith in people.



Over half a century later, Marilyn Monroe is still revered as a Hollywood legend, an ideal American beauty / diva. Her popularity has not dwindled. It is a pity that her life ended up so early or to quote another diva, Sir Elton John, she was like a “candle in the wind”.

Top Ten Popular Posts at My BlogJob Site - One Year Anniversary!

Thanks to the nifty tool called "Facebook memories", found this reminder about BlogJob, a blogging community that I joined in 2015.  FB memory links to the original blog post.

Updates to this post:  
  • The quote and link to the review that was supplied in that post (dated 2014) is outdated.  In May 2016, the site owners stopped their Points Program which was the primary monetary incentive for signing up.  The owners have continued to make the platform available free for the users.  Some chose to keep their blogs published at the site.  Some left.  I stayed. 
  •  Also, my BlogJob blog name and tagline changed to:
Blog Title: My Pain, Your Gain
Tagline:  Advice for newbies and others who want to work at home. Learn from my mistakes.


Why?  
  1. BlogJob has a very good Alexa ranking;
  2. Too much work is required to republish my content; 
  3. There is a revenue-share plan (if you have a Google Ad Sense account: 75/25 - owner's favor); and 
  4. You can use affiliate referral links (no sharing; you keep 100% of commissions earned). 

In fact, because affiliate products are allowed, in November 2016, after encouragement from a fellow blogger, I started a new blog called My Shopping Channel.  


However, as to whether new members are being accepted?  That decision is in the hands of the site owners.  I do not direct aspiring bloggers to the site.  But I also don't discourage people from visiting and finding out on their own.  What I can say is that not many bloggers have been signing up, since the Points Program was discontinued.




In my previous post, a year ago, I provided links to my most popular posts at the time.  Below are links to personally selected posts that you may find informative, entertaining or both.  Hope you visit and please leave comments to let me know you were there.  Thanks so much!




The Book is For All People

The Book is For All People

Believers and non-believers have argued and debated about the facts presented in the Book aka the Bible, for thousands of years. Is it true or is it false? No consensus has ever been reached. But both groups agree that the scriptures are fascinating reading.

Nimrod and the 'Gate of God'

Nimrod and the 'Gate of God'

If you come from a Judaeo-Christian background, then you might be familiar with the story of Babel because you were probably taught about it as a child. If you are unfamiliar with the biblical account, it tells of the time when everyone on earth all spoke the same language but God confused the languages.

Legends, Myths, Fables, Folklore, Culture on Pinterest

My Pinterest account is a business account, thanks to the graciousness of the company owners. It also includes collections that are not business-related. The boards had been created when the account was a personal account and even though I converted to a business account, I kept the my pinboards. 


One of my favorite personal collections is Legends, Myths,Fables, Folklore, Culture. 

"Pegasus is one of the best known creatures in Greek mythology. He is a winged divine stallion also known as a horse usually depicted as pure white in color. He was sired by Poseidon, in his role as horse-god, and foaled by the Gorgon Medusa." Wikipedia

If you have some free time, you really should visit and peruse my pins. My collection includes what the usual that Westerners have come to expect when you say the word “mythology”, i.e. winged horses, unicorns and Greco-Roman gods and goddesses. 


But there are also pins for anything and everything from Poliahu,the Hawaiian snow goddess TO A List of Poisonous Plants and Herbs and Their Lore.


Collected some information about nymphs.  Publishing the post here and will share it via Pinterest.  Enjoy!

(P.S.  I'm also expanding my collection to Tumblr.  See my first reblogged post below.)

The Seven Kings of Rome


The Seven Kings of Rome

There was once a group of villages on seven hills which grew into an empire. But how did it happen? During the reign of Emperor Augustus, the historian Livy (Titus Livius) gathered myths, legends, folklore (possibly adding in facts and information that could be verified or authenticated by others) and wrote down the story of how the Roman Empire came to be.

The History of Astrology and the Gifts of the Magi

Just read an interesting blog post about the history of astrology and how it was applied in the beginning. (Reference: The Brilliant History of Astrology on Earth | Literacy Base

I believe the initial use of the science of astrology, "in the beginning", i.e. to predict weather for agriculture purposes, natural disasters, etc., is its correct use or application. 

The post goes on to state that people began to say they could apply it in human affairs for success. I believe that could possibly be when scam and con artists began to leave their indelible marks on the history of mankind. With one exception.

The visit of the Magi may be a part of the so-called Christmas tradition but more importantly … it's a true story.  

It's an integral part of the most beautiful story every told.  





Christmas Tradition: The Gifts of the Magi - Daily Two Cents

Christmas Tradition: The Gifts of the Magi - Daily Two Cents

Every year during the month of December, many people direct their minds to the story about the birth of Jesus, revered by faithful Christians as the Savior of the world. Although the nativity scene always shows the three wise men (also called the three kings) adoring a newborn baby and bearing gifts, the biblical account indicates that their visitation did not occur on the night that Mary gave birth.
