  1. Post to a friend’s DREAM FLASKS website: Just another way to say you care by giving a gift with Personalized, Engraved WORDS!

    Until I came upon this site – http://www.dreamflasks.com – to see what was available in the way of engraved flasks for a possible gift for bride’s grooms, I never thought of all the various situations in which a flask would come in handy. Prior to my one small reason to search the internet for engraved flasks, I did not realize the enormity of the types and styles of flasks. The immense variety of styles, sizes, quality, materials, designs that are available at Dream Flasks got me to thinking…. Hey, for just about every reason I lug around a multitude of water bottles/containers, I could use ONE customized or personalized flask! Instead of populating the world with my water bottles and other various liquid containers, hoping they’ll at least be recycled, I could be using an engraved flask! All those expensive, cute, decorator drink receptacles I have bought and lost over the years….If only I had had an engraved flask. Something that would have had some sort of identifier engraved on it. If I had had that I probably would not be out purchasing new liquid containers on a regular basis. I started purchasing “impressive” looking jugs, bottles, glasses thinking I was being cute or cool. Heck I thought, at least I was using something re-useable instead of wasting plastic bottles and filling trash receptacles with unwanted trash! Then I began leaving them everywhere I went. The money I spent ranged anywhere from $2.00 to $22.00 for these precious liquid containers. I am one of those people who feel you cannot go anywhere with water or some type of liquid with you….Do you have any idea how many really cool engraved flasks I could have bought with all that money? I mean think about it what are you less likely to leave behind somewhere? Wouldn’t you be less likely to leave behind something that fit in your pocket, pants, shirt or purse for that matter? And after getting disgusted with losing my “designer” bottles or fancy “to go” cups, I started reusing plastic water bottles. That is until I read about the BPA dangers in using the plastic bottles as containers. Not to mention the fact that despite my recycling efforts I was adding to the negative environmental issues of too much garbage!!! Now I have forgotten the reason I even came to this fabulous site filled with endless choices in engraved flasks. Oh yeah, a gift for men, and I am a woman. There are actually flasks designed for women! Oh my stars! Are there ever. There are female flasks in a large variety of styles that can be customized and personalized as well. All I could think of was, forget the groomsmen’s gifts, I need to get one or two or three for myself! Maybe one for dress, one for casual, one for small amounts of drinks, one for larger amounts, one for my purse, one for my pocket, one for bike rides, one for my car, HECK even one for the dog to take on dog outings! I think I’m on to something. Anybody else out there thinking of the other multitudes of uses of flasks?

    Please feel free to comment on any of the pages above….This is just a general comment page. LOL

    • How about words you use to describe your self?

      When people meet you for the first time and/or when you meet others for the first time what do you want them to know about you? What do you want to know about them? Are you what you do for a living? Are you what your family status is? Are you where you are from? Are you what your personal beliefs are in a higher power (your religion)? What are some of the first questions people ask when they meet you?

      I am often tempted to answer these first meeting questions with something shocking or unexpected. For some reason it bothers me to have the old standard replies. Maybe we should explain ourselves in a way we would like to be viewed. Or who we would like ourselves to be. For example, at the time of this writing, I am basically “self-employed”. I am in the enlightenment stage. (lol) Another words I am, once again, working on another certification, Internet Marketing. Wow, what a plethora of information that constantly changes. I should like to say in answer to the question what do you do for a living – – – I do a variety of tasks in a variety of fields. What do you want me to be doing?

      What WORDS encompass a good representation of who you are? What you do for a living? What your hobbies are? How would you begin to define yourself? Of course it depends on the situation. If you were on a job interview you might not tell the interviewer the same thing you would tell someone you were meeting at a party. Or maybe you would. Interviewer: “Tell me a little bit about yourself” – – – I really need to practice my response for that questions. I am always tempted to say something like “I am whomever you need me to be!”

      Words – We Reach With Words. We express ourselves with words. And unfortunately we wish we could eat our words. Once they are out we cannot take them back. Hmmm. Should we put more thought into our words?

      When people meet you for the first time and/or when you meet others for the first time what words do you use to describe who you are? What do you want to know about them? Are you what you do for a living? Are you what your family status is? Are you where you are living. Your hobbies. Are you what your spiritual believes are?  Your political affiliations.  Are you honest?  Do you describe who you are in the eyes of others or your own.  Are you someone different depending on who you are meeting?  What do people REALLY want to know about you and how far are you willing to go to tell them.  Let’s face it there are somethings about your self or your affiliations not all people would understand or look favorably on.  For instance I have been a member of a 12 step group that has totally changed my life for the better.  But who should I reveal this to?  I have been a member of this group for over 10 years and it gives my life new meaning and direction, but that is not the way everyone sees it. TMI

      I had a professor and a few other people tell me, “You are an actor on a stage when you walk in the room for an interview.” You rehearse and practice your words for this important chance at a job. You read them carefully and try to figure out what magic words they are looking for. Why? Why can’t both the interviewer and the interviewee just be honest? Wouldn’t it save a lot of time, money, and energy if we could just be real with each other? Words, Words, Words… The Words must match the actions.

      There is a fine line between being honest and being socially acceptable. Honesty, humility, openness, “being real”, there is a time and a place for these things. And as the saying goes, “Some things are better left unsaid.” Words, it’s all about words. Words you say, words you write, words you read. Let’s all try to use our words to the best of our abilities. Let’s try to express thoughts, feelings, knowledge with REAL, HONESTY, quality WORDS, words that encourage, uplift, when possible.

      PS: I know there are other ways to express or communicate feelings, thoughts passions, but words are the primary way we communicate. Lets value them.

      PPSS: That reminds me check out some really excellent visual expressions by an artist I have come to know and love at a “WORK IN PROGRESS” website: <a href="http://DoloresHibbard.WordPress.com&quot; title="Paintings by Dolores Hibbard" target="_blank"

      Thanks for reading. Please share some words with us. Most of the pages on this website have a place for sharing comments. But the main area is the page on top titled “Blogs & Suggestions”.

    Hey guys, it’s been awhile. I am in the process of switching over to a self-hosted site in WordPress. It should be ReachWithWords.com or Reach-With-Words.com. Will leave posts as progress continues. I have somehow lost some of your AWESOME posts. In the process of finding them. LOL. Thanks for your patience.
