The Ford Escape Car gives you control in bad weather and reduces emissions while driving ! (My review of the car)

Hello all. WHat are some features you look for in

a car? It’s not just cutting down on time to get you

to your destination. You want more benefits and the more

benefits the better it sounds. Well, that is important reason why

I just wanted to take the time to promote my

favorite car, the Ford Escape. Oh it’s beautiful and shiny.

It’s worthy of much applaud.

Now, getting into the Ford Escape’s benefits.  The Ford Escape’s

AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™ helps

maintain control in rain, ice, or snow. It has auto start stop

technology to reduce emissions during city driving. WHen it

stops, the engine cuts off. It restarts when you step on the

accelarator or move off the brake pedal. With one of it’s features,

you change gears rather quickly. Another of one this car’s features

lets you  know if you are going too fast on a curve or dry or wet pavement,

by slowing you down.

Whoa! I had no idea this beauty had so many vital features. Now,

it gives more meaning to this car. If I had to pick my number

one car, it would be the FORD ESCAPE! I treat it like a valuable person.

I LOVE this car. In addition, I did a tally of how many times I saw this

car.Here are the details:

I did this tally April 20, 2016 before 8am to 7pm. This very

beautiful day I noticed I saw this car 129 times in one day on my

journey Dearborn Heights, Michigan to Detroit, Michigan. I made

sure every time I saw this car I put a line on the paper. This tallying

method is a representation of just how popular this car really is.

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.

10 of the Best historical Landmarks that Highlight Black History!

frederick douglass photo: HS-FD Frederick Douglass FrederickDouglass.jpg

Well, we know black history is 365 days a year. February is too
limited. Black History is one of the most important subjects
to know. Knowing our history allows us not to be lost in a
sea of illusion. So when I find out some things about black
history I’m ready to let the world know.

If you go to Alabama, you’re in for a treat. You might have the
chance to visit the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute. This museum
was the first to save the information on the history of the modern
civil rights movement. The building chronicles the Freedom Rides, the Children’s March and more key historic moments. You can find it located at the city’s CIvil Rights District across the street from 16th Street Baptist Church.

The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum and American Jazz Museum. The jazz
museum is deeply rooted in African AMerican history.

The National Civil Rights Museum is the site built around the
Lorraine Motel, where Martin Luther King Jr. was killed in 1968. It
also has the boarding house from which his assassin James Earl
Ray fired the shot.

The DUsable Museum of African AMerican History is one of the
nation’s top museums of African AMerican History. They give
details on the history of blacks in the Armed Services.

The Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History is the
nation’s largest black history museum and schedules exhibits on
African AMericans in science to liberation. This is the spot to
see when you go to Detroit, Michigan.

The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center is located
on the OHio River and has this view of the waterway that
represented freedom for runaway slaves fleeing from Kentucky
on the south shore. The exhibits there include a slave pen and
a film narrated by Oprah Winfrey.

The Museum of African American History is located in Boston and
Nantucket, Massuchesetts. One of the two buildings that is involved
in the museum’s Boston campus, the African Meeting House was built
by black artisans and echoes the history. Go there and you can stand
in the same pulpit were Frederick DOuglass stood.

The Museum of the African Diaspora is San Francisco. This particular
institution is centered around the idea that all humanity can trace
back it’s roots to the African continent.

The Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American
History and CUlture is in Baltimore. The building’s peculiar
desicn was inspired by a slave ship. It was built by one of
the country’s leading African American architects Philip G.
Freelon who is also planning the National Museum of African American History and Culture.

The International Civil RIghts Center & Museum is another historical
landmark for Black History. One of the most important
moments in the civil rights movement occured in 1960 when 4
college students did a sit in at a WOolworh Counter after
they were refused service because of their race.

This information sounds all around interesting and I will
be glad when I can travel to these specific locations. There
are some things I need to see there and some knowledge I need
to take away from there.
