May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day. May songbirds serenade you every step along the way. May a rainbow run beside you in a sky thatís always blue. And may happiness fill your heart each day your whole life through.

Wherever you go and whatever you do, May the luck of the Irish be there with you.

HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY TO YOU!

:)

I prefer KFC's chicken, myself. However, there is a little hometown place where I live that makes some of the best fried chicken, you could ever hope to taste.
Now as to the "booty stankage", you're on your own with that one.

Black folks need to accept themselves and their beautiful characteristics. Of all the races in the world, peoples of African decendant have pretty skin and hair so why are they so "I don't like my hair" ? I believe self hatred was brought down through slavery. Negative comments are to make them feel inferior and it shouldn't.
So Black folks be proud and love what heaven has given to you.
How can I love the big ASS heaven gave me????
