Happy Fourth of July To All Of You!
Memorial Day Monday
So I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day Today!
I know for some it doesn’t have much meaning behind it but for me, it is a blessing to be in a country where I have freedoms that other countries may not have them, and it is a blessing that I have people who fight for me in wars that I know, I could not take on myself. I suppose Memorial Day has different meanings to different people and some may not even recognize it, but I want to say a special thank you to all the vets for your service and continued service for our country.
I participated in the 22 push up challenge raising awareness for Veteran suicides.
I want to thank all of you who have served our country with massive amounts of bravery.
Have a wonderful Independence Day Bloggers!
Today’s post is a bit different, I wanted to do something fun and also something new. I hooked up with another blogger (whom has done a guest post for me in previous months) and came to her asking if she would be interested in doing something like this, where we each ask each other 5-10 questions about each other’s country and/or state and have that person answer them. Hopefully all of you will enjoy this little activity I came up with. I am from Ohio and she resides in Kenya, and if any of you have questions for either one of us, feel free to leave a comment here or at her page https://lifesfinewhine.wordpress.com/
My Questions for her/ her answers:
Probably Ugali and Sukuma! I can’t live without Ugali!
The African Lion, Cheetah, Zebra, Black Rhinos and the African Elephant. We need to take much better care of our animals and it’s very sad to see how much the wildlife in this country has declined in just the last few years. For more information on this please check here: http://www.kenya-advisor.com/wildlife-in-kenya.html and please try to learn on the internet how you can adopt and help save the animals.
We have something called Madaraka day on June 1st which celebrates the heroes who for fought for independence and is the day Kenya attained internal self rule in 1964.
Well if you’re an extrovert there are plenty of clubs, bars and restaurants where you can hang out and have fun in the cities. If you prefer the nature there are lots of animal parks and orphanages, safaris, and other fun places to visit.
There are about 42 tribes in Kenya each of whom speak their own language and there are some tribes that speak more than one language so there are a lot of languages that are spoken in Kenya however most people speak Swahili and English.
The most popular religions are Christianity, Islam and Hinduism however there are other religions in Kenya too.
Depending on what you do for a living and your level of education finding a good job in Kenya can be either very easy or incredibly difficult. If you do something like accounting or medicine it is probably easier for you to get a job whereas if you do something in Arts like History or Literature there are not as many job opportunities.
Her Questions for me/ I answered:
Not Going to Share my Inner Thoughts.
I just wanted to make a fun little announcement in case anyone wanted to ask, has some inner politic feelings they felt the need to share, etc. I will be the FIRST to tell you, that I have my own thoughts on the overall election and about each candidate and YES, I did vote which gives me a right to make such a blog post in the first place. My blog site is about “Fitness” & “Health”, not the “Hilary and Trump” show. I normally don’t mind going off the beaten path and sharing my views on my blog, hell most of you know my life story by now, but I have boundaries, these boundaries are set for situations like the election to avoid arguments, threats, slander, less subs, less followers, less readers, black mailing, etc. Some bloggers found this to be a great time to get more followers, to voice their opinions, which is fine, because some people are able to do that and take the risk and some have blogs about politics/government issues (which would make sense) & then some people don’t give a fuck and hope to weed out whatever group doesn’t agree with their thoughts. Regardless of your standpoint on the election, this is not the page to share your inner thoughts about it, because I will not be discussing who I voted for, why I voted for who I did, and having a bickering act on my blog page over bullshit that puts stress, anger and madness in my heart & mind. Personally, I commend those who are able to share who they voted for and why on their blog, because with as many people being asshats, it would seem very hard to do and not receive backlash – no matter who you voted for.
So with all due respect, lets keep my blog page free of politician/election talk. I might talk about some government issues on my blog —- that pertain to myself and others but this will not be one of them. I appreciate everyone’s continued support on my blog and hope that this doesn’t offend anyone, but I want to avoid negative chit chatter over Trump-Hilary .. I read enough of it on Facebook, lol. Thank you.
