How to Pass the Driving Test your First Time Book Review!!

chryslerI’ve always wanted to know how to drive. When I did

drive years ago, I was nervous. Think about it. The

vehicle is bigger than me and is run by me. That

means I have to be extra cautious and know what I’m

doing. I kept studying the road signs and situations

from a specific book called ” DMV Test: How to Pass on Your First

Try”. It’s an excellent, high quality affordable book.

It lays out the most dangerous situations to avoid

like not texting on the phone while driving. They

even lay out the things you should do. They state

the following:

  • Accelerate smoothly.
  • Stop the vehicle gently
  • Make sure your vehicles is in the proper gear.
  •  Signal for all lane changes and turns.
  •  Look for potential hazards. Check your mirrors frequently.
  • Check your blind spots before changing lanes.
  • Know where to stop, like at crosswalks!

The book ask questions on the following:

  • The narrow bridge ahead sign
  • The cattle sign
  •  Right lane end signs
  • A crossroads sign
  • Which sign the shape represents
  • They ask what situations represent service, regulatory, route,and warning signs
  • Where certain signs
  • Location signs
  • Clearance signs
  • Defensive driving
  • Left turn hand signal
  • How far to look ahead or park your car from something
  • How low beams should be used
  • Safe following distances
  • Intersections
  • Passing
  • Speed Limits
  • What you should do in particular driving situation

Well, I studied the book from the Secretary of State, and wrote it down

over and over. I then bought the book “DMV Test: How to Pass on your First

Try”. I studied that book and had fun with the questions. I went up to

the Secretary of State and took the test with my BIRTH CERTIFICATE

accompanying me. Ofcourse, they want to see your birth certificate and

state id so you can take the driving test. I got my permit because I passed

the test. Then, I went to one of the driving school’s and took about 9

driving sessions, 3 hours per week, for $150.00 weekly. That is expensive.

When I first started my driving session,

I was told to relax and hold the steering wheel at 9/3 like on a clock. I was

also told to signal left and right turns and to let the steering wheel

glide through my hands. I was then told to put the car in park ,put the car in drive,

check my mirrors before I take off. I learned some things.

In order to go into the right lane, I must check the front mirror,

the outside right mirror, and over my shoulder, which is the back window

right. Then for a left lane change, I should still look at the front mirror,

left mirror outside the car, and over my shoulder (left back window of car).

I had fun driving and was a very cautious new driver. I wanted to keep

driving but my source of money ran out. I have to use my other

money for something else. And one last thing- Just because you

take the driving test online and fail doesn’t mean you won’t pass the

driving test in person.

I failed One of the driving tests online,  then passed  ANOTHER

driving test onlilne, but passed the driving test at the Secretary of State.

They don’t even ask you all the questions in the book I mentioned earlier,

or from the dmv tests for michigan online. Plus, in that book I told you

about, it is a question and answer book. It includes 202 questions and

answers. So go ahead, build up your  courage. Get it done! Thanks to

my subscribers, readers, people who like my work!

I wish you blessings. Now, gchryslero and ace that test!

I got the braid and twist style! (pictures inside)

I got the hairstyle from contemplating a new look. I told the stylists i want cornrows going up and twists at the top. I notice that when you don’t get parts in your twists and braids the hair looks fuller. Anyways, The top center section is where I told her to put the two strand twists. The twists really jazz it up. They flow right into the braided style. My stylist was a cosmetology student that said she would do her relative’s hair just like mine. I was honored to hear such words. This look just made me happy and I feel like a model. Aww, I will get this style again.

I strutted around town in my Egyptian costume on Halloween ! (Pictures inside)

20161031_184313

I Tamarva, have always loved Halloween. The main reason

I love Halloween is because I get to dress up. I love, love, love

to dress up. So this year I ordered an Egytpian costume. This

costume comes with the multi-colored jewel collar, the black

and gold dress, the gold belt, and the wig.I bought the Egyptian

headdress separately. I also got the lipstick and eyeliner. I didn’t

wear the face stones until a few days after. I was not able

to duplicate the eye of horus around the lining of my eye.

I didn’t wear the fake eyelashes. I was not able to find the

perfect shoes for the outfit until I stumbled upon Payless.

I went into that store and saw some fine shiny black shoes

with a wonderful slant to them. They were $25.99. It costs

me over $50.00 for the outfit and accessories. Oh, and

Happy Belated Halloween! I was supposed to do this

post earlier. Peace!DesiSmileys.com

The Secret of the Stones, a magic book involving black children who turn back and forth from human to stones!

I have wanted to write children’s stories for the longest.

I’ve always thought in order to write children’s I have to understand children.

I have to get inside the mind of a child. I know there are three things

important to a story: desire, obstacle, and resolution. These are

just three of the important things in a story. When I read “The Secret

of the Stones” I was truly amazed. Now let me give you a brief

synopsis. “The secret of the stones” is a story about a black

couple having no children.

They stumble upon two stones that

they take back home. These stones turned into a black orphan

boy and black orphan girl. They do all the cleaning and housework

while the black couple is out but disappear when they return.

They were spotted due to a neighbor. Yet, they had to get a

magic charm to make the children reappear briefly. Then,

they finally figure out how to take off the spell permanently,

so that the children never disappear. I love this happy story.

The whole concept of the story takes my mind to another place.

I wish this story was possible in real life. I describe the

story as mysterious. I had so much fun reading this.

The whole perspective is fresh and new. It impressed me

compared to the other children’s books I read but didn’t

get into. I rate this story a 10 out of 10 and it is number 1

out of my top 10.

The story is called “The Secret of the Stones” and it is

retold by Robert. D. San SOuci. The pictures

are by James Ransome. The publisher is Phyllis Fogelman

books and the state of publishing is New York.

The African Holistic Health Book tells you the natural way to treat illnesses and the acheivements of black people!

What are  two more important topics in the world besides money,

a car, a house, long hair, and a thin body?  Health and black History

ofcourse. They both influence the future. So it’s best to know them

both and know them well. The book talks about illnesses like :

arthritis, high blood pressure, low blood pressure, backache,

autism, bad breath, breast cancer, broken bones, cancer, etc. He lists

herbs to help with specific illnesses from A to Z. It talks about

the accomplishments of African Americans, how the eyes can

show signs of disease, how the oldest instrument in the world

is the AFRICAN harp. The African drum language was stolen by

Caucasians. It lets you know that black people hear, sing, and

play music at a higher level because of the melanin in the

inner ear bones and great bone density and the melaninated hair.

Because black people have a high melanin content we

can taste the full range of flavor of foods, can smell the

true aromas, and have the highest psyche ability. And ofcourse,

since us black people have a built ihigh amount of melanin ,

we are protected from the sun’s uv rays. Black people have

hair shaped like the galaxy. Our eyes are brown, due to melanin

content. White people have blue eyes, green, and gray eyes

because you can see their veins in the back of their eyes. It also

goes more into the history of the black way of life. It shows that

using European customs and ways of life has destroyed black

relationships. Well, these are just quick highlights of the book.

You get way more knowledge when you read it. It’s alot to know.

It’s alot to then show. It’s way more than I’ve said here.

It’s serious business and I have faith that it can change your life

for the better.

Clementine Hunter, an African AMerican woman so jazzy with her oil paints!!

 

Clementine Hunter, an African AMerican woman born 1886,

was a folk artist who use to spend time in the cotton fields.

Oh, what a blessing. She spent her time in the cotton fields.

Later on in life, she worked in the house, which gave her a chance to

try out her sewing skills. She would save up small, left over scraps

of material and turned that into fabulous quilts. The plantation owner

encouraged her to make quilts and baskets in her spare time.

She tried to try and mark a painting just like the artist. She

showed someone name Francois the picture she had painted during

the night. This was the first picture she showed to anyone besides

her family. Francois encouraged her to paint more. She then

began to paint on different items such as :paper bags, use bottles,

cardboard boxes, and iron pots. Francois made sure Clementine

always had a nice supply of oil paints because she could not pay

for them herself.

Pretty soon, she was able to sell her works and turn around

and get her own paints and a suitable canvas. In 1955, the Delgado

Museum in New Orleans gave an exhibition of her work.Francois

suggested that Clementine paint wood panels for the house.

She painted nine murals, showing different scenarios on the plantations.

Her work became popular with big city art galleries  and shown

at museums too. She sold alot of her paintings, most to friends

for small amounts of money. Eventually, she was able to get her

own trailer. The moral of the story is to work for what you want.

Someone around you can inspire you on what field or career

to go into. Well, she is just one of the many talents that

exists in Black History. Hunter lived to be a 101 years of age.

How Black men and white men worked on the highway of ALaska together!

Ofcourse Some white people are quick to dismiss the black man’s talents.

Now if you know black history, you know us black people do it and we

do it better. We do it big. We are the meal, the snack, and the cake with

icing and sprinkles and a nice drink to go with it. We just outdo ourselves.

More black people should help other black people. It’s really a competition

with white people and black people. It’s not black people and black people.

That’s just how it’s set up.

Moving onto the story.  The little people thought that African American

engineers were not skilled and industrious as White people. This is so not true. It was an

experiment done with white men and black men to work on the same

project. They did not want African Americans to work in cold climates.

Black men and white men worked on the same highway. Yet,

it was still segregated. The African American engineers were not

allowed to have bulldozers and other machinery. The 95th Engineer

Regiment, who was the final African American unit transferred to

the highway, had more experience operating equipment. Yet,

the all white people of the 35 regiment was given the machinery.

African Americans were given hand tools. You see how backwards

some people are? But the brilliant and bold African Americans

are so magnificent they can get something done with pure labor.

On October 25, 1953, an African American soldier and

a white bulldozer driving soldier shook hands. This was the

final link of the Alaska Highway! They were photographed

as equals coming together to beat the Axis Powers.

It was now 1942, when the highway was completed.

The engineers who had labored so hard and were transferred to

other arenas in the war, including the South Pacific

and Europe. There, thirty men died during the construction

of the highway. Memorials for the veterans are spread

throughout the highway, including the Black Veterans

Memorial Bridge, which came into effect in 1993.

Thus, it was truly hard work to work on this project.

This is just one instance of black people and white people

working together.
