Why I've heard enough about Obama

I am a self proclaimed Obamamania simply because this guy inspires me to aspire for greatness. During his victory speech I shed tears just like others at the Chicago Square.
Of late however I think I've had enough of his stories and I now want a break! That is why I cannot read any of his earlier books despite the fact that I've never read them before.

The simple reason is that he has already triumphed, and it was actually sweeter to have read them during the caucases amidst the uncertainties regarding his candidacy.
The greatest lesson I've learnt from Obama's story is that during a struggle and when I'm facing challenges and many unknowns, that is when life is sweetest and makes sense.

Therefore upon achieving a milestone I should move on to other challenges after brief celebrations rather that living in the dream of the associated nolstagia.
Could you kindly move on my friend, the battle is over and victory is all yours! There is a lot more waiting to be conquired, plan to be the hero of the next battle.

IN MY WORLD:The cockroach menace

It is amazing the way Doom, the famous insect killer keeps changing face and names.Recently it was Mortein Doom with eggkiller, now it is called Fast-Kill. I have an issue though that cockroaches in my home are still a menace. Well, Doom somehow helps but after sometime all hell breaks loose with more cockraches.

Could anyone advise on how to deal with cockroaches once and for all?
Deviating a bit, I found that cockroaches eat tomatoes, carrots and even raw sphaghetti, now that is really unpalatable piece of information.

MY THOUGHTS: The thin line between sleep and laziness

Scenario 1:
Every morning I really struggle to wake up even when previous night sleep was hard to come by. This leads me to wonder whether sleep becomes sweetest in the morning or does laziness kick in, or do both occur simultaneously.
Scenario 2:
It is a hot afternoon after lunch,either heavy or a light meal.But there is a problem. I'm feeling drowsy and can hardly stay awake.I'm not fatigued coz I havent been busy anyway.Now, is this sleep creeping in or am I just lazy again?
Scenario 3:
Today I'm really bored and moody.My mind wanders around and before I realise it I'm yawning. Sooner than later sleep comes knocking. Again I wonder,is it laziness,boredom or sleep.
The short life I have lived makes me conclude that unless I'm tired,fatigued and have had a full day,then any feeling masqueriding as sleep is laziness.
In Proverbs we are told that a man who loves sleep will come to nought.We are also warned not to be lazy lest poverty overtake us like vagabonds.
Just a thought to build on.Sleep is good but it's not an excuse to be lazy

Alvaro versus Novida

We have recently been treated to intrigues and marketing gimmicks as East African Breweries and Cocacola,makers of Alvaro and Novida malt drinks respectively outdo each other screaming non-alcoholic! Of course it makes sense for EABL to say so since it offers alcoholic drinks.In contrast is cocacola trying to tell us that coke,fanta etc may be alcoholic? It is the case of a marketing strategy gone awry!

Facebook's peeping toms!
