Coolio Feat L.V. & Stevie Wonder - Gangstas Paradise (Live @ 1995 Billbo...

In my opinion, one of the most beautiful song from the nineties. And this performance with one of my idols, the incredible Stevie Wonder was awesome!

Coldplay - Viva La Vida

Viva la VIDA!

Tip of the day: Accupressure


 It's an alternative, simple, easy and free way to know and to try an alternative "treatment" to some of the ilnesses we have, through some fingertips touchs in the right places  pointed on our faces.
 I like to use it, especially when I have a headache. All you need is to preassure the points indicated with the preassure enough to feel where it hurts.

Healthy life style motivations

Ideas to get your body moving

1. Turn off the TV.
2.Jump off the couch and out the door.
3.Walk the dog.
4.Play with your kids.
5.Ride a bike around the block.
6.Play music and rock around the house.
7.Take the stairs instead of the elevator.
8.Park at the far end of the parking lot.
9.Join a health club or take a dance class.
10.Spend time in the garden.


I know, I know....all of these ideias are easy to say and hard to follow. You can tell me that you don't have dogs, kids or even a garden, that you live in an apartment. So, you can improvise !  If  you like cooking  for example, try to exchange the fat and the carbs into something lighter.
When I started my diet I began to create an imaginary full taste of the true things that I like to eat a lot and make me fat faster.  How? Let me give you a hint: I love pasta, and my doctor told me to not eat it, at all  for a while! So, I decided to cut really thin and long slices of carrots and zucchinis and pretended they were  spaghetti. And believe it or not, it worked perfectly. Of course it takes time and some effort to make, but you can make  more than what you need to eat at the moment and fridge them into some water and raw, of course.
So, if you want to eat more "pasta" the next day or so, you can cook them right away and make some creamy sauce replacing the sour cream for a light mushroom cream soup. It's very similar. You don't need to suffer to get healthier.


If you feel very hungry, drink lots of water or tea. Walk at least half an hour in a fast pace during your lunch break. Believe me, everything is about practicing. It will become a habit. It's not about being easy to change, but it's a challenge when we feel deep inside that we need to change to feel better about ourselves, especially when our health is in danger. And more you get into a shape, more your self-esteem grows.


We can create everything we want. Kisses for all.

Our power and our love to the Rio victms


We'll get through this,


through the rain, the mud, the tears.

As the song says, “we all are one, we’re all the same person”

He’ll look at us, protect us.

Some day our city will be the most beautiful again,

Not only for the rich

Not only for tourists,

But for all, for us.

 
From us,the girls from Back to the Beggining, with deep love.

There Is A Light That Never Goes Out



"Take me out tonight

Oh take me anywhere

I don't care, I don't care, I don't care"
I'll never lose my faith

The best time eva'!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

video

Favorite video from the 90's




AND





Well, some weeks ago I was talking to some friends about tour teenage years, about how DIFFERENT we were, considering none of us is more or much more than 30 years old. We were trying to figure it out how is to be a teenager in the internet age. Yes, there was a time when there was not internet, consequently, no tweeter, no orkut, my space or face book. Oh, and no cell phones too!!!!



                                Favorite tv serie. A bit of alienation doesn't hurt.


At that time, to be a teen in the 90’s, a child in the 80’s, was really fantastic!!! Of course, it must be fantastic to be a teen now, specially for them, but in my concerne, now everyone who has a digital camera, some imagination and a LOT of self esteem can be a sort of star now. Most of my friend and me are teachers or pedagogs. I have noticed that many of us have students as friends in orkut or face book. When I visit some of these pages, suddenly that humble, shy student of mine is a charming pop star or a fame fatale. How can it be? They simply put on dreams as clothes and they have free access to different behaviors, different stars, music etc. Seems to me that everyone is a star, everyone poses!


   Caio Fernando abreu, this man changed my life in 1995, when I first read his books.






Some time ago, the inspiration usually came from the tv series, soap operas and music stars. Nowadays it comes from everywhere. It’s not very uncommon an ordinary person call become famous because of some peculiar ability or talent, some time ago, to be an artist was much more difficult, to release an album was almost impossible. Today you can throw your music on My Space and be e successful or not. I remember when we used to fall in Love with some music in the “past”, there was not the facility of googling it to learn the lyrics. There were basically two ways, we copied- yes, handwriting- or we looked the lyrics at magazines like Bizz or Letras e Cifras. It was exciting and I particulary liked to copy and memorize the lyrics.
