For today ~ Have you ever taken a side trip into the life of someone else? If so, did you discover that your life is quite enjoyable without the side trip?
I’m laughing, because I’ve taken a few side trips in my life that made me appreciate my functional life. If you’ve ever stepped into a DRAMA scene in the life of someone else that seems to never end, you know what I mean. You can relate to getting off of a run-away train wreck.
You may or may not come in contact with a lot of dysfunctional people, but just in case you do…
I’m wishing for wonderful and blessed days for you. I’m hoping that you find all the JOY in life that you can handle.
Feel free to leave your experiences here to share with us.
Have a BLOG 954 kind of day!
LOVE,
René Allen

BLOG 954 by René Allen ~ TODAY’S HEADLINE: Disaster at sea!

"Daily Life Musings"

BLOG 954 by René Allen

As BLOG 954 gets rolling in this new fascinating year of 2012, I thought I’d share a tid-bit of NEWS that I came across this morning on the internet.  This is my second time posting this message to you, as somehow, some way, my post disappeared into the ethereal realm never to be seen again.  So this is a duplicate, which will be much better than the first, as that is simply the rule of law with BLOG 954 — It can only get BETTER ~ smiles…

Now, with that being said, let us get on with the NEWS of today, as reported by CNN this morning…

 

Disaster at sea - CNN NEWS STORY

 

Disaster at sea: Luxury cruise

turns into nightmare

 

By Ashley Hayes and Dan Rivers, CNN
updated 11:03 AM EST, Mon January 16, 2012

 

 

BLOG 954 is typically an upbeat, inspiring, encouraging, and motivational online blog source.  However, for some reason today, this news story jumped out at me.  It may have a lot to do with the fact that I had a dream the night before about a large boat heading my way.  In the dream, there was a large boat (ship) being sent to my location.  A male voice in the dream said to me, “There’s a large boat coming your way, and it may have a rocky trip there, so be on the lookout for it.”
Well, interestingly enough, I wake to this sad news story.  There are still 10 people missing, and six people have been reported dead thus far.  The cruise ship also is reported to have run into rocks on the coast of Italy.  In addition, the cruise ship was 951 feet long, which is another detail that caught my eye, and really made me focus on putting this on BLOG 954 today.  Here is an Excerpt from CNN…

Porto Santo Stefano, Italy (CNN) — On board the Costa Concordia, thousands of passengers were dining, drinking, …

It was Friday night on the luxury cruise liner, sailing in the Mediterranean off the Italian coast with about 3,200 passengers and 1,000 crew members — a night of entertainment and relaxation.

There was annoyance, but no real alarm, when the lights went out — not at first. Passenger Vivian Shafer said she thought it was part of the magic show.

But those on board then heard an ominous scraping sound, and the 951-foot vessel gave a shudder. The ship began to list to one side.

Here are some of the other HIGHLIGHTS from this NEWS STORY…

STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • The Costa Concordia struck rocks and began taking on water Friday night
  • Passengers recount a chaotic scene as thousands rushed for lifeboats
  • The cruise line says there may have been “significant human error”
  • At least six people are dead, with others unaccounted for
  • CLICK HERE TO VIEW FULL CNN NEWS STORY!
Typically, you can look to find inspirational life musings here on BLOG 954 that are upbeat and interesting.  This CNN NEWS STORY today reminds me a bit of the Titanic tale — although this is a much smaller scale disaster — this is a disaster all the same.  You won’t be finding BLOG 954 reporting on too many disasters ~ at least I hope not, because that is not the intent of this BLOG.  However, I would like to know your thoughts on this disaster.  I’d like to hear how you feel about taking cruises?  I often wonder if I am the only one who does not feel that cruises are safe.  My friends seem to love cruises.  I don’t, and I never have, and I still don’t.  I hope I said that enough (smiles).  But, really, I’d like to hear from you about cruises.  If you have taken a cruise in the past or recently, how did you enjoy it?  Would you do it again?  Where was your cruise destination?  Would you recommend the cruise lines that you used?  If so, do share why
Be sure to check back this evening for more from BLOG 954.  And make sure you take the upcoming poll so that I know your thoughts in relation to what types of content you will be finding on BLOG 954 this year, and I can report back to you on the overall response from the Readership of our blog.
Have a beautiful day today, and I’ll see you back here this evening for an update!
