Mother's Day and Other Things That Come with May

Happy Mother's Day to everyone. It has been a while since I posted a blog. As i sat here playing around on FaceBook, reading emails and listening to my two youngest kids I decided to blog.

May is the start of a very busy time in my house. After Mother's Day, there is my MIL Bday, my moms BDay, my sisters BDay, my Bday, my sons Bday, and my wedding anniversary. My plans this year include being in NJ for my Bday, something I have not done in a while. I am really looking forward to this because it will be a very much needed vacation.

I always loved May when I lived in Jersey because that meant it was time for warm weather. Living in Florida, May means the beginning of some very uncomfortable months to come. It gets so hot in Florida and since I can't be on the beach or in the pool everyday, it is not very enjoyable.

There are a lot of books I am looking forward to this summer. I can't make promises, but if I feel up to it I will blog about them as the summer goes.

I wish I could end this blog by saying I have had an awesome reading year thus far, but I am disappointed with having only read 25(I think that is the number) books. I do hope with the upcoming long weekend for Memorial Day and the mini vacation I make around my Bday that I will have a better number to report. In the meantime, there are a few new links to some reviews I did, take a look, browse the review site, you may find your next great read.

Happy Founders Day to the ladies of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated

Happy founders day to my sorors, the fine ladies of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Incorporated.

History of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc.

Zeta Phi Beta Sorority was founded January 16, 1920 on the campus of Howard University in Washington, D.C. by five coeds, Arizona Cleaver, Myrtle Tyler, Viola Tyler, Fannie Pettie and Pearl Neal. These women dared to depart from the traditional coalitions for Black women and sought to establish a new organization predicated on the precepts of Scholarship, Service, Sisterhood and Finer Womanhood. The trail blazed by the founders has been traversed by thousands of women dedicated to the emulation of the objectives and ideals of the Sorority. It was the ideal of the Founders that the Sorority would reach college women in all parts of the country who were sorority minded and desired to follow the founding principles of the organization.

The Sorority was the first Greek-letter organization to charter a chapter in Africa (1948); to form adult and youth auxiliary groups, the Amicae, Archonettes, Amicettes, and Pearlettes; and to be constitutionally bound to a brother group, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Incorporated.

Happy Founders Day to the Men of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc

On this 9th day of January 2010 I have decided to republish my dedicated post to the men of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Incorporated. As a member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated the men who wear the Blue and White hold a special place in my heart.
History of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc.
Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. was founded on January 9, 1914 on the campus of Howard University in Washington, DC. The founders were Most Honorable Brothers A. Langston Taylor, Leonard F. Morse, and Charles I. Brown. The founders envisioned the creation of a fraternity that was unlike any founded before it. This brotherhood would thrive based on "inclusion" rather than exclusion.
Motto: "Culture for Service and Service for Humanity"
Colors: Royal Blue and Pure White
So I say to the thousands of Sigma Men, who since the fraternity's inception have truly exemplified Service, Scholarship, and Brotherhood, EE - I - Kee!
