- I'm a habitual line crosser that believes everything happens for a reason, but life comes with no guarantees, no time outs, no second chances, you just have to live life to the fullest. Laugh as much as you can, spend all your money, tell someone what they mean to you, tell someone off, speak out, dance in the pouring rain, hold someone's hand, comfort a friend, love the ones who treat you right, forget about the ones who don't, pig out, smile until your face hurts, be a flirt, stay up late and fall asleep watching the sun come up, don't be aftraid to take chances or fall in love . . . and most of all live in the moment, If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If it changes your life, let it. No one said it would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.

By the end of his term, he will have drained over $360,000 from us for the rental mansion he's living in while the historic Governor's Mansion undergoes renovations.
When Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, a Republican, was faced with a similar situation, he lived in a donated triple-wide mobile home on the grounds of the Arkansas Governor's Mansion to save taxpayers money.
Taxpayers should not be paying for a $1.85 million mansion with a heated pool, a cabana, and a full outdoor kitchen. Rick Perry should be setting an example. What is worse is that Rick Perry has twice mandated a 5% budget cut on all government agencies, causing the University of Texas to consider closing the Cactus and discontinue informal classes. People who work hard for the agencies, and make much less than those in the private sector, have been told for years now that they would not receive promotions and raises that they were promised. Yet, Rick Perry can live the life of luxury while others struggle to make ends meet.
Please help move Rick Perry out of his rental mansion by making a contribution of $5 or more to the Rick Perry Relocation Fund, also known as Bill White for Texas.
The state faces a staggering budget shortfall, with serious consequences for students, teachers, and Texas families.
Everyone is tightening their belts. Why won't Rick Perry?
Please make a contribution of $5 or more to boot Rick Perry out of his rental mansion and help elect a leader who cares more about our state's future than himself.
Last week we called on Rick Perry to leave his rental mansion and set an example for state employees who face budget cuts. Texas' governor should be serving the people of our great state, not milking taxpayers.
We need a governor who will pinch pennies and make sure taxpayers get their money's worth.
If you agree that it's time for Rick Perry to leave both his rental mansion and the Governor's Mansion, please make a contribution of $5 or more today.
Let's make sure that if Rick Perry is living in a luxurious mansion a year from now, he's doing it on his own dime.

Is wine healthy? Yes, in moderation and as part of an overall healthy lifestyle. Wine’s alcohol content and nonalcoholic phytochemicals has been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease and certain cancers and slow the progression of neurological degenerative disorders.
However, the amount of wine you drink matters immensely. When you consume more than what is recommended, your health benefits are lost and your health risks go up. Men should have no more than two drinks per day and women should have no more than one drink per day. Note that this is based on an average physical size.
Drinking either red wine or white wine will increase the HDL, or good, cholesterol. However, red wine contains higher levels of powerful phenolic antioxidants then white wine does. These phenolic antioxidants found in red wine will help to keep your LDL, or bad, cholesterol levels healthy. They also help to reduce the blood clotting ability of blood. Both of these actions will help to lessen the risk of cardiovascular disease.
