These are my beautiful Primulas.
I had soil outside which was so wet,
it is three days now, that I
don't need to water these pretty girls
since I transplanted them all into one pot.
Color is very welcome in this house.
Since I was doing this I decided to put my lemon tree plant into a bigger pot.
Now I have to transplant one more, so they have room to root and grow.
I hope the little guys grow into trees so I have reason to rejoice.
Rejoicing over the little things in life are meaningful rewards
one gets, which make life worth living.
Today we had what is called a lunch break fast. Fries with stir fry of zuccini
mushrooms onions garlic, Italian sausage, vegetable gyozas, tomato and fresh ginger.
Gosh does it smell nice!
I wish I could have a bowl of chopped ginger to sit and smell all day.
I wonder if they make ginger candles for aroma therapy ?
Better yet, ginger crunches nicely and I love things when they crunch.
My poor son has a back ache. All this soccering is finally catching up to him.
Mens soccer is ruthless . He still manages to be top scorer but the pay off is
seen in aches and pains one must sooth after the game. I don't know why
men have to be so rough when it is just a game. Not like they will make or
lose millions on it.
My Bella and Tanya are having girl issues. They scrap something awful.
It's all for show and all for balls.
Bella always sits begging pitifully for food when you eat. If you give her
a piece of something and the other one sees and doesn't get something too,
she comes over and looks into Bellas' mouth.
The look is like.... spit it out or there will be
heck to pay. I'm top dog here.
Reminds me of an Ottie and Garfield moment.
Bella ignores her and goes on to beg for more.
Her begging is so pitiful that if someone who doesn't know her hears it,
he/she will think, oh poor dog must be lonely. They must be abusing it. lol
That sure is a talker dog and she jumps on you every once in a while,
with nothing but pure love. My husband loves her to no end.
Finally he got what he sees is the perfect dog: black, smart, loveable and a talker.
We have never had such a pesty dog. She always wants to be a part
of everything and for people like us, we love it.
Tanya sits like an angel and waits .
You have to coax her and she has to smell and
analyze before taking it delicately. Bella smells and either collects stuff cause she wants
more fast before it's gone, or eats it with gusto.
Sometimes they have this sit off. Bella or Tanya leaves the food and sits and
watches the other one salivate but dares not approach to take it.
Tanya plays smart When she wants something, she walks off so Bella gets distracted
and then she circles back and picks up what she wants and takes it away from Bella
Bella then stands looking for her stuff and the stuff is gone.
So Tanya is teaching Bella every day to be smart.
I never knew Tanya was smart like that.
She never had to be I guess. lol
Today I watched CNN and read the Huffington Post,
along with the comments, which is emailed to me online.
One article referred to Michelle Obama and her disrespect of
Islamic protocol, by not wearing a head cover.
I had to laugh.
Sometimes the insanity of politics cracks me up.
Michelle Obama is an AMERICAN woman.
Since she became first lady, her message was,
I am a free person and not a slave.
SHE stands for FREEDOM, unlike her husband, who has issues
with Islam and can't quite make up his mind who he is
or what he wants.
Either he is President of the United States of America
who fights for freedom or he isn't.
He can't be both.
Saying Islam built America is an insult.
Slavery existed only in the south but the north built
America and put in the Constitution.
The North came from places like England France and Spain.
There was no Islam there. If there were Islamic slaves in the south,
they were given freedom and good people fought to give it to them.
This is why America is loved and hated at the same time, even today.
In his State of the Union Address, Obama arrogantly remarked
to the Republicans, that he won two terms.
Well, had he continued with his Islamic chants and garb and kow towing
as he did in the beginning, he would have lost big time.
His Party won him the second election.
His Party told him to shut up.
What did he do for America other than open doors to more
fighting and more spending, further depleting a great country?
The AfroAmerican people do not need hand outs.
Even Oprah agrees.
America needs education so there is no need for health care, psychiatry or prisons.
The fight is for clarity of the mind,
to make good judgement decisions, so America does not die or
lose the greatness she was once seen as being.
Canada has the same problem with Liberalism.
We have our own old fart Kennedy, sitting in Quebec,
laughing at every one, debasing our country,
in the person of Mr Brian Mulroney.
He is a Conservative, a man who pushed in the (temporary ) hated GST,
pushing for the election of a naive liberal,
who is not
ready to run a country, especially in these times.
Mulroney sees himself as part of an elite and thinks highly
of himself and wants to see Canadas' middle class fall.
Islam stands for slavery. It promotes the destruction of the middle
class who is comfortable, educated and able to think and
put up a fight.
Michelle, and I might add Le Braun James, as free people,
did not see anything wrong with caressing the Queen or the future
Queen of England, Kate.
Free people have no fear because they stand stand for something greater.
Any person who suffered at the hands of Hitler, knows and understands the signs.
Youth ......does not. They see nothing wrong because they haven't suffered.
They haven't suffered because good people died for them to be free.
Today, the young have to respect the past for giving them these
rights and freedoms and they have to continue to fight not to lose them.
Legalizing drugs, living without morals ethics and values which
we are told do not exist and are not important.....
Well ... lets just say.... these unimportant , bad things, made us
the great countries that we are.
To spit on that is to spit on ourselves.
Once upon a time ( a few weeks ago) there was a lady who drowned her kids.......
shall I go on and bring her here? Go to sleep!!!
The best in child rearing is learned from your family. lol
Today as I looked again at the old, sad , sorry Toni box standing on my bathroom counter,
I decided today was the day.
Yup I used my Moms' old curlers and made myself a perm,
saving 150.00 bucks. I say saving money because when I do make a perm at the hair dressers,
I come home disappointed cause there are no curls.
Another thing I found was they use the bigger wave curlers and my hair requires the smaller ones
which means more work putting them in. I tried finding them in the store but they don't sell the curlers with the fine paper, so how are the new people supposed to do a perm at home, like we used to do for each other in my time. I always did my Moms' hair but she never did mine. All she liked doing was cooking. I took after my Dad who was known for his golden hands and this is what they said of me too. No one says this anymore cause the people who mattered and understood how important it is to know things, are all gone now.
I also use pins so it is nicer to sleep at night.
Never did like hot irons.
Lately they had a nice hot iron they showed on tv where by you put a piece of hair into it and it rolls and curls it by itself. I thought that was cool.
As you age, you find that your head sweats so any curls, die right at the root.
This will be my last Toni perm as I don't see them selling it anymore.
Breaks my heart.
Everything has changed in the hair department.
Even the hair dressers today don't understand the word LAYERING.
They don't know who Farrah Fawcett was and that girl had HAIR.
It was gorgeous! Back in the day, everyone wanted that look. I still do.
In the hair department, I am in love with the idea of hair inserts on an elastic string.
You can get them in many colors and even an old girl like me can have red and purple hair without actually coloring anything and look groovy.lol
It's one way to upgrade yourself. lol
But we don't have so many places to go to show off the look, without people thinking you are nuts. lol
As my husband brought in coffee and sandwich to me he said Hunh! You look like Merryl Strip.
So how about it? lol
Have to give it to the ol guy. He's still tryin.lol
Then he came in to get the plate and give me a coffee top up and asked:
So how was the sand wich? Did Bella like it?
With demanding girls like mine, you are lucky to eat at all. lol
Last night I had a dream I carried my Mom and lay her down on the couch.
She looked so pretty young and thin. She wore no glasses. She got up and without a word,walked away and I thought gosh, she looks like a ballerina. I rushed to my Grand Mother to tell her Come Quick! Look! My Mother's not dead!
They buried her but she's alive. Hurry! Hurry!
(Who is they? I buried her.)
My Grand Mother looked at me with her eyebrows up in interest but did not rush and I woke up,
only to remember that my Grand Mother is gone as well.
My Grand Mother also looked young, living another life.
As more and more people leave your life, you miss them more and more.
I would have given my Mom a lot more Tonis. I would have sewn a lot more dresses.
We would have had a lot more parties, baked a lot more cakes and Easter Bread.
Gone on interesting shopping sprees. Done a lot more gardening and pickling and made the best home made kolbassas.
I remember having this blade on the table and all these cabbages waiting to be
sliced and salted for winter.All the neighbors shared it.
Nothing like fried salted cabbage with onions to eat or stuff pyrogies with.
Now you are all alone to do these things and they are not so much fun to do.
The young people are in their own world and really don't care.
You think, when you look at them, they are missing out on so much fun and survival skills
The day is done.
Today I boiled some flowers with cinnamon,
cardamom, orange peels and olive oil.
The scent is very beautiful.
I added some alcohol to it and now its sitting in
a Grand Marnier
bottle with a cork.
If it sits a while it will really smell nice on the skin
unless of course someone decides to drink it lol
Nietzche, one could argue, was a complex and unhappy man,
in that he spent most of his life living in his head, alone.
He was very lonely and in the end fell into the arms of insanity
His life ended when he was 56 and he became known as the anti christ.
His virtues lay in the philosophy of pessimism.
Nietzche did not drink alcohol because he saw this as the same thing
as believing in religion.
Alcohol, like religion, dulls pain and suffering without actually resolving any problems.
Resolution of problems, leads to happiness .
By over coming difficulties, one turns a negative into a positive.
In fact he believed anguish, suffering, turmoil,indignities etc.. was good to experience and made you stronger if they helped you learn to overcome them.
Achievement and success to Nietzche, was a result of hard work and learning from failure.
(I don't know but seems religion also teaches this about hard work and learning from failures).
He used envy for example, saying it could make you bitter but it also could make you competitive
and thus successful which in turn makes you happy.
Anxiety can lead to panic . Panic can help you look for the reason behind it and this can bring about peace and happiness.
(so could avoiding falling into panic and envy altogether)
He objected to religion saying things like poverty is a virtue because the rich will find it hard to get into heaven. He said there is nothing wrong in being rich, healthy and successful.
(nothing wrong if you build and run proper business on ethical moral grounds and not hurt people and share your fortunes with those who are not so lucky. Today many businesses are not moral or ethical or share)What Nietzche also may have not understood is that the Bible does not concern itself with financial riches as much as it does with the riches of the mind soul and spirit because they belong to God. Bodies are just the outer wear and they enjoy financial riches found in material wealth.
Nietzche believed abolishing pain and suffering was just plain idiocy because it is through these sort of things that happiness could be found. Imagine being a Prima Ballerina without blisters and muscle pain and agility which requires a lot of work. Well joy can be found in becoming one but sacrifices in love, family, children must be made as well and this leads to a lonely life.
He was a brilliant man but as all brilliant people find, it is lonely at the top because people do not understand you. He could not find a solution to this problem.
He could not find a purpose or reason to continue life and living.
Death to him, was a solution to all things.
(religion could have helped him here. He could have opened the doors to true love. Love, giving and nurture resolves many issues. He would have experienced the joy of camaraderie)
You can bring a horse to water as they say but you cannot make him drink.
This makes teaching a very difficult undertaking. You have to get people to want to learn and understand. Identifying the problem is half the battle.
Today we have the problem of identifying why students go into rap, as opposed to science and learning. lol
Seneca was another philosopher during psychotic Neros' time. He was Neros' tutor and tried to leave but Nero did not let him go.
Seneca dealt with issues of anger and fury. He saw much of it in Rome as we see it today on our own streets in road rage except then it had to do more with the ineptitude of slaves.
He attributed anger to optimism and having high expectations, saying we would benefit psychologically from lowering expectations.
He said people are similar to dogs on a leash. The dog has freedom of movement but the leash limits where he can go.
The difference between man and dog is that man has reason and rationally can determine what he can and cannot do.( I'd say a dog does too. A dog knows to stay away from danger. A dog knows not to pee in the house.)
Fury can be avoided if one prepares for things to go wrong.
Every morning there is an exercise to go through, to prepare yourself for your day,
as to what can go wrong.
Use of pessimism can be helpful
in adjusting to the world which you can't control and won't conform to your wishes.
(again it can be argued that with a positive mind, you can adjust if you prepare but with a negative mind you can prepare and then say: Aha! I knew it! and still have fury.)
In Italy there was a Goddess called Fortune who held control over man. The biggest achievement
was her message sent , by destroying Pompei.
She showed that she was in control and not man.
Seneca made an imprint on the world by the way he died and this is why philosophy is something to learn from.
Nero ordered Seneca to kill himself.
Senecas' teachings on the virtues of pessimism, learning to prepare for things to go wrong, helped change his attitude from anger, desperation, fear, fury etc.. to one of quiet calm, as he took a knife to his wrist. Acceptance of defeat, acceptance of not worrying over something he could not control and lowering his expectations of life and in living,
made it psychologically easier for him in death.
He died in dignity, living and more importantly dying, what he taught, amazing his students of philosophy.
" What need of it to cry over parts of life when the whole of it is a cause for tears?"
We say this today when someone is killed.
Why punish the killer, when the life he took, cannot be returned?
Let him carry the psychological burden.
( Many of our soldiers carry this burden as the imprint of their actions remains in their souls.
Today we desensitize people to killing and even torture by the games and movies we show.
Children raised in day care do not have the nurture they need from a Mother.)
Cry when the person is alive. Cry to save life for the living, not the dead.
Stop crime before it happens, not after.
Take precautions to avoid bad things from happening, as best you can.
Close the loop holes. Say NO!
We find trouble preparing for this kind of loss.
We feel fury, anguish, pain and suffering in spite of ourselves and find no comfort from philosophical teachings
Having something to look forward to, found in faith and hope of an eternal existence ,
is another philosophy and perhaps a solution to many of our psychological dilemmas.
Philosophers and philosophy do not end in death.
In this lie the virtues of pessimism.
(Unless of course we raise people to be cut off, immune or desensitized to pain and suffering
and psychological distress. In the past we called these people insane. In todays' world
we may call them martyrs, who feel nothing and love what they do.)
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
I love this speech, "Give me Liberty or Give Me Death" because it relates to what we believe in today, in free countries and why good men are still dying in battle
and why our Canadian government is sending planes to help our allies fight the barbarism
being bred and hidden, even behind our own borders.
Historically Islam, because it is stagnant, represents enslavement.
Christianity, because it evolves,stands for freedom and fights enslavement,by promoting human dignity.
Slaves are not allowed to think but are ruled by men, cut off
from humanism, who legitimize black and white words, from ancient texts,
when slavery was acceptable.
We separated the Christian church and state in Canada and now subject ourselves to indignities,
the result of being cut off from Christian values and virtues which built Canada and made it an excellent, free, nation to live in.
Sun News showed a video where Judge Lapkin, gave Brazeau a one year jail sentence , for using his rights to freedom of speech.
Brazeau criticized Islam and the judge claimed that words are weapons and people who use weapons, must be jailed.
This move, directly or indirectly, empowered Islam and jihadists to continue the atrocities they commit on a daily basis,against the innocent.
If Judge Lapkin had his say in all freedom of speech incidences,it might not be all that bad.
However, let's face it, people do not hire judges to put the nation in jail,
for their offensive, perverted words and fantasies, most of which are in fact criminal, if they are interpreted as weapons.
Words attack and destroy, healthy minds,innocent souls, and bodies every day.
Most of what we see and hear every day today, should be censored, especially where children are concerned.
Our government does not seem to support censorship of words like Judge Lapkin does, because we are not a nation of slaves.
Slavery, Judge Lapkin, was fought with the "weapon" of words.
So, how would Judge Lapkin, judge Patrick Henrys' speech on Liberty ?
Would he censor and jail it?
Special attention must be paid to the last paragraph with respect to Peace.
Judges lawyers and politicians should know philosophy and be heavy thinkers, otherwise we elect, are led,and judged, by a nation of fools, who pave a road to failure.
If words from the Bible, which promotes freedom, are the enemy of the state, then why are the words of the Koran protected by Judge Lapkin?
They are actively being used as weapons in many countries including Canada,physically killing, torturing, and maiming, minds, bodies and souls.ie Nigeria, Syria.
We must learn to close loop holes which open doors to slavery, not open them.
It is political correctness today, to say NO to slavery
and yet Judge Lapkin fights to open the doors to it, by supporting an archaic Ideology that believes in it and is instrumental in using it for jihad.
Islam is a political movement, that far out ways the legitimacy of religion, as a recognized power in Canada.
It is about time we made this clear and put Islam where it belongs, outside the religious arena, into a political one, so we can gain back the freedoms this country is so proud of.
In the political arena, Islam will either evolve and grow or be stopped from using its' ideologies to enslave and hurt people. Universally, jihad will be outlawed
as an expression for representing God and doing Gods' work and muslims can then be empowered to enjoy peace, in the same way other religions can,
Prophets are not God.
Patrick Henry's "Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death" Speech
It is as timely and to the point now as it was then in 1775.
No man, Mr. President, thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism,
as well as abilities, of the very honourable gentlemen who have just
addressed this House. But different men often see the same subject in
different lights; and, therefore, I hope it will not be thought
disrespectful of those worthy gentlemen if, entertaining as I do
opinions of a character very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my
sentiments freely and without reserve. This is no time for ceremony. The
question before this House is one of awful moment to the country. For
my own part, I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom,
or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to
be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to
arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to
God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time,
through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of
treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the
Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.
Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope.
We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the
song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part
of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we
disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and,
having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal
salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am
willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for
I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of
experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past.
And judging by the past, I should wish to know what there has been in
the conduct of the British ministry for the last ten years to justify
those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves
and the members of this House. Is it that insidious smile with which our
petition has been lately received? Trust it not, sir; it will prove a
snare to your feet. Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss.
Ask yourselves how this gracious reception of our petition comports with
those warlike preparations which cover our waters and darken our land.
Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation?
Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled that force must be
called in to win back our love? Let us not deceive ourselves, sir.
These are the implements of war and subjugation; the last arguments to
which kings resort. I ask gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array,
if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlemen assign
any other possible motive for it? Has Great Britain any enemy, in this
quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and
No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us: they can be meant for no
other. They are sent over to bind and rivet upon us those chains which
the British ministry have been so long forging. And what have we to
oppose to them? Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for
the last ten years. Have we anything new to offer upon the subject?
Nothing. We have held the subject up in every light of which it is
capable; but it has been all in vain. Shall we resort to entreaty and
humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been
already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, sir, deceive ourselves.
Sir, we have done everything that could be done to avert the storm which
is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have
supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and have
implored its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the
ministry and Parliament. Our petitions have been slighted; our
remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our
supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with
contempt, from the foot of the throne! In vain, after these things, may
we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer
any room for hope.
If we wish to be free -- if we mean to preserve inviolate those
inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending -- if
we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been
so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon
until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained -- we must
fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God
of hosts is all that is left us!
They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable
an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week,
or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a
British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather
strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of
effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the
delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and
foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which
the God of nature hath placed in our power. The millions of people,
armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which
we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against
Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God
who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up
friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the
strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides,
sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now
too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in
submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be
heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable--and let it come! I
repeat it, sir, let it come.
It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace,
Peace-- but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale
that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of
resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we
here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life
so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains
and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may
take; but as for me, Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death!
I love philosophy and Daniel Bonevac is a miracle worker, a god, by bringing
Dostoyevsky, Nietzche, Hegel back from the dead. lol
What is real? What is truth?
I thoroughly enjoyed this video. Took me back to the good ol days
when I loved being a student.
I think if left to myself, I would be a student forever.
I always look at life as an educational experience and this makes
everything rational because we must know the good, the bad and the ugly
to be human ourselves.
Cut off from humanism, we become barbarians.
What a gift education is!!
Every one should watch it.
We are the people who we are.
We determine who we are and what we believe.
God is dead and we are all murderers! cries the mad man.
And Dostoyevsky says after all this rational or irrational thought,
teaching and knowledge...
we are back to Narcissism.
The more things change, the more they stay the same
says Hegel as he believes absolute truth is there for the taking
but it would take a genius to find it.
Enjoy and thanks Daniel for an awesome video.
The thing is, what people dont seem to understand
is that Islam is not about countries and borders.
Hitler understood this and thought they would be great to work
with for world dominion but then Hitler was for the master race .
He then would have had to get rid of them all as well,
like he wanted the get rid of the Jews.
It's about Islam and world domination.
There is only Islam and nothing else.
This is the Queran agenda.
You can have terrorists and you can have normal people,
living quiet normal lives but the agenda is the same.
It doesn't change.They come in and they take over,
very nicely and quietly and if you don't like it, they escort you out.
They don't assimilate.
They don't become Danish or French or Canadian or even American.
This is a totally foreign animal, countries have to deal with and
this makes them dangerous because whereas the rest of the world
is told not to have kids cause the planet can't feed them,
they are breeding like cockroaches.
They need women to be their brooding cows.
Quebec separatists use this escorting ploy today as well.
They escort every one out nicely.
It is not a nice feeling esp for people like my Dad, who worked
hard, and was a proud Canadian, just to find out he is not liked
or wanted in Quebec for speaking English .
This is not a reason to escort a person out.
Immigrants already lost their countries once, in WW2.
But there you go... 700,000 people left Quebec.
Now this again is not me talking but the Islamists themselves.
(the good ones lol the nice ones).
Of course now they all shut up because they know
they talked enough to hang themselves. lol
Of course once Europe falls, they have North America
conquer and then they have China and with China,
this will be the
end of the world.
China will not be a bleeding heart.
we can't afford to sit here as bleeding hearts and refuse
to call a
spade, a spade. It is what it is.
It is not about racism or even
religion. It is politics in its' purest form and we all have tons to lose if Islam wins. Islam is a political Ideology NOT RELIGION.
It is illegal to be a Nazi today. It does not mean Nazism is dead. It could still be working through the political agenda of Islam. You can't kill ideologies like this.
They keep living.
So who is ignorant, those reading a little article in the Punch paper
or history written in many books and words from Islamists themselves,
(who are your neighbors and friends)
who were arrogant enough and without fear, to tell you it is
their way or no way,
cause in the end there can be only ONE.
Something to think about.
Charlie Hebdo suffered a major tragedy for standing up
for their right
Again in this time of woe, Reza Azlan is wrong in his dipiction
of the poor muslims living in
No one asks them to go there.
Why do they leave muslim countries if it's so good there?
They kill Christians in their countries.
They come to new countries vowing to use their
democracy against them.
They abuse women and children.
They buy and marry 9 year old girls from other countries.
What does a 69 year old man need from a 9 year old child wife?
They attack schools teaching girls.
The behead and stone innocent people
They help promote poverty.
They refuse to get out of archaic minds.
Lots of things go hidden under the veils of Muhammad laws.
Then they get angry and use this anger to retaliate?
Is this what 9/11 was all about too?
We dont need people like this in our free countries.
It doesnt matter if they are Muslim or any other similar
religion/ or people.
If they dont want to assimilate into their new country as law abiding citizens,
they should stay at home.
If they carry a passport then this shows the country that adopted them, has shown
love, acceptance, gives them shelter, education, food and deserves loyalty .
Every other immigrant comes with good intentions except
They have no one to blame but that book they
believe in, which is
pure hate we are not allowed to discuss and
we have anti hate laws which puts people into jail for
of hate and treason this books carries on its' first page.
It's very existence, will always encourage jihad.
In fact it was Hitler that said that they would do much better with
Islamists to conquer the world, than they would under meek humble Christian
laws and values.
Multicultural countries get along with every one,
so if they are
having a hard time,
then they better ask themselves why and
put the blame where it belongs.
All the immigrants came to North America to be free.
No one came here to again begin a Muslim hoard or sit under the thumb
of any dictatorship.
We like what we have. It took a long time to build and thank you
but no thank you , we don't need Sharia laws here or a police state
or citizens crying for the rights of a pretentious prophet.
We live in a world in constant war.
War between people and races.
War between political views.
War between religions.
We see Satans' work , every where we look,
in the eyes of man.
We see drug abuse.
We see laws abused .
We see freedom and human rights abused.
We still live in a world of torture, be it physical, mental, or spiritual.
People argue, just for the sake of arguments.
We know God loves man kind so much, he sent his son to die for us.
We know God created man in his own image.
We know that it is the result of Satan, the fallen angel,
has to struggle to live and survive.
Some would say they would rather do it the hard way than the easy way,
cause there is something that attracts us to do it "MY WAY".
. It's more fun, inventive and who loves mischief more than children?
The good people of this world cry out to God and ask him why?
Why the pain and suffering?
As a result God has become more fiction than
fact and people hate him
for all the bad things that happen.
The true nature of man, is a result of his environment and experiences.
We cannot experience nor learn everything in one lifetime.
We hear people speak of reincarnation often and if God is spiritual,
then spirits or souls of man, also have a time to venture out and
become something other, to experience something other.
We speak of personal journeys in life.
We see the work of the devil challenging everything we believe in,
simply by saying: YES you can.
Yes, is a very positive, powerful word.
Mothers teach their children: Don't put your hand into the fire.
The devil walks in and tells the child:
Yes, you can put your hand into the fire. It won't hurt you.
As a magician can tell you, if you know how to walk over coals and
how to put your hand into the fire that yes, it might not hurt you.
If you know how to walk over water, you might not drown.
If you know how to take a bullet, you might not die.
A lot of if's in this world to be tempted and challenged by and
man likes these challenges, which always have consequences affecting
the people around them.
So now we ask, does God fear and hate Satan?
Should we fear Satan or God?
Well the Bible says in the end, God wins . We don't really understand what
this term "win" means.
Is Satan helping God to win?
By defying God and his 10 Commandments , Satan challenges man to learn,
to grow and to mature.
Maturity brings forth understanding and understanding
brings forth goodness because man loses fear.
With no one to fight, there is only enlightenment and peace and most of all ..love.
All falls into balance.
Unfortunately many lag behind because they like to sit and behave as children.
We call them lost souls.
We call them people who can't make good judgement decisions and
who pull every one else down.
These people live in fear, in physical, mental and
spiritual poverty and these people argue and fight,
but man always has HOPE to reach them and God works in the other
world to maybe reincarnate them to give them another chance
to learn and grow and mature as they fulfill their worldly dreams and desires.
He buys them time.
It's funny cause if we go into the germ world, we can see that with colds,
there are just so many mutations germs can make and as the body learns to
fight them, in the end, people become immune to colds.
Can we be immune to Satan in the same way?
One day, man will find, that to survive as a species, we have to learn
to go beyond the physical, into the spiritual, to survive the wave of destruction
our universe is headed for.
Is this what Satan is fighting for?
Is this what he is building his army for and should this distress God?
As spiritual beings, we need fear nothing .
Gasses and liquids unite and form compounds and if we look at plants , animals and
people, we are all compounds with limits.
We can of course argue that as we get closer to things, they disappear and blend into the universe
and they can also disappear as we look at them further and further away,
so in essence, nothing exists .
Focus brings things into perspective, to see things as they were really and truly meant to be seen,
and enjoyed and focus, has limits.
And what are limits but another word for "NO".
So in the end, we see that NO wins and Satans' Yes, loses.
Satan recognizes no limits, whereas Gods' creation, man, does.
If man had no limits, then he would not exist and so the 10 Commandments
to help man see the limits, to survive.
Therein lies the HOPE of Salvation, that man will grow and mature and survive and
find himself enlightened in goodness.
In this light, God does not seem such a bad guy and Satan is just a child
who never grew up and ran away before his education was over.
God does not fear children.
He loves them one and all.
The Miracle of the Bells is such a wonderful Lasky movie
sending people a wonderful message.
I hope you all go to this you tube link to watch it.
It stars Fred MacMurrey, Old Blue Eyes ,Frank Sinatra,
Lee J Cobb, Veronica Pataky.
I don't often watch Fred Mac Murray films, but this movie from 1948,
was outstanding. I don't think I have ever seen it before but
they should play more of these kind of movies as opposed to
what they show kids today.
I always say the old stars, can't be beat and this movie
is just a small example.
Hmmm ...1948 - 2015 and still so touching and meaningful.
Some things are just not meant to die.
Mr Nozupnthair was walking down an
with ordinary cars
With ordinary people.
There was nothing special going on
Just ordinary things and
Mr Nozupnthair thought
What an ordinary, boring, day.
Mrs Gassytank walked by and said :
Good Morning Mr Nozupnthair.
Mr Nozupnthair nodded back a greeting of hello,
making sure not to lower his nose too much.
Mrs Gassytank walked into her place of employ called
"We Roll up the Cabbage" cabbage roll store.
He fingers were brown from smoking and cleaning and rolling cabbage leaves in a not too clean environment.
No one bought cabbage rolls, as they were in
awful sauce, so one wondered how the store survived.
Mr Paninthebut got out of his car and waived hello.
Mr Nozupnthair nodded hello to him as well.
Paninthebut was re known for his inquisitive mind and endless questions
. He immediately reported to half the neighborhood as such was his job
as the local gossip reporter.
The more secret things were , the more people knew about it.
was not wise to stand beside Paninthebut cause the locals gangs hated
him and drive by shootings were regular things that happened.
Spinaweb, a whirly woman, with buck teeth, nose ring,wearing colorful
printed tights, bumped into him with her baby carriage. The baby's
clothing was dishevelled and pungent. The hair looked like it wasn't
combed in a week, not to mention the dirty little face and unbecoming
facial expressions. She was busy chatting away with her friend,
Miss Pisspus, and did not see Noznthair in front of her.
Pisspus was an audacious girl with gaudy purple hair standing up on
end, a tatted arm and big lips, covered in shiny black lipstick.She was
also in black tights and wore a shiny wet look vest.
They both giggled like it didn't matter, that they were rude.
Mr Nozupnthair was annoyed but did not lower himself
to their level and decided to cross the street.
The light was green and blinking saying WALK but the cars had other
messages to send Mr Nozupnthair, as they cut him off and splashed him with dirty muddy water.
Poor Mr Nozupnthair looked like a tall wet spaghetti noodle standing there,
in the middle of the street.
nostrils flared as he reached in his pocket for a handkerchief, to wipe
his face.He should have known better he thought, as this always happens
on rainy days.
He made it to Snitch Street where Mr
Stretch, the panhandler, tried to sell him some stolen jewelry. Mr
Nozupnthair made sure to hold onto his pocket book cause Mr Stretch was
also a cunning cleptomaniac with very nimble fingers.
Jazz , Rainbow, and Lynx were a threesome foxy, working ladies, selling their personal wares by the local BURP Pub.
Seems clients wanted more for their money . If they have a good day, they make it a short night.
But they could do better than to offer a three for one special, undercutting all the other working girls, with no friends.
Mr Noseupnthair walked by without even a flinch.
Mr Snort sneezed as he approached Mr Nozupnthair.
"Hey Mr.! Wanna a party? Ten bucks a nickel."he whispered in a hoarse voice.
With a wave, Mr Nozupnthair kept walking past him.
now Mr Fistyfishmer was a nice old man running an old fish store. The
fish couldn't be fresher swimming in the tanks, where you could choose
the one you wanted. He cleaned the fish for you and left the guts for
the flies to find. The fish came from the polluted waters of Lake
The stench was too much to handle for a man with his nose up in the air.
is only here and here alone, that Mr Nozupnthair lowered his head and
covered himself with his jacket as he walked by , a little faster.
Fistyfishmer yelled after him shaking his big knuckled fist in the air:
"Eh! What's da matta wid you? You no lika ma fish?
Fresh! Fresh Fish!
Finally Mr Nozupnthair made it to his office on Yukayuka Street.
walked up a flight of creaky, warn, wooden stairs and reached for his
long string of keys.Even in the day time the doors had to be kept locked
and cameras were installed outside to watch who came and who left.
As he entered, his secretary Ms Eigouger gave him his messages.
Newswitch was about to report the weather. He had colored blond curly
hair,wore big white designer glasses, short pink leather pants , a
white shirt with a black collar, a lily in the pocket and a purple polka
He tried not to overdress for the camera.
"Every thing ok?" asked Mr Nozupnthair?
"Just Peachy." answered Newswitch as he rushed by him.
Butchin walked in and put one foot up on the chair. His Iroquois head
look, with the word " Bang u Dead" sheared into the short sides of his
head and his un shaved complexion made him look like a barbarian
from a Schwartzenegger movie.
"Got some hot news today boss.
There is a demonstration for freedom at City Hall.
Seems there is not enough free housing in the city
and people want more social funding.
Nother plane fell down but they don't know where.Some special needs kids died from a drug overdoses. A few more kids born, one with two heads and one with
six arms and feet. Moms are Dads show is airing today on the Showemboobs Show.....
Mr Nozupnthair sighed.
"That's it? Don't you have anything fresh and new?"
"Hunh? "Butcher looked confused.
Why boss, this is a lot of news here, just come in.
Nozupnthair sighed .
" It's all the same news.
Same streets, same cars, same people
Same thing ............ over and over and over.
We need something fresh, new."
"Like what Noz?"
see....like tap dancing, opera, healthy kids going to a normal school,a
Mom kissing and loving her clean, well cared for baby and a Dad having
an actual job.
Grand parents living with kids, who
baby sit , to cut costs and so grand kids do not sit on the street. Unpolluted fish and meat, clean
stores and markets, Good jobs to cut social service costs.
People living in actual "homes" instead of houses.
And how about "NO to Drugs and and courteous driving habits, and people making good judgement decisions.
How about a girl that looks and acts like a girl and ... how about chivalry, just to name a few things off the top of my hat."

My Two Beautiful angels are done and by the Christmas tree
showing off their frilly skirts and golden heads.
If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too:
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;
If you can dream — and not make dreams your master;
If you can think — and not make thoughts your aim,
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same:.
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build'em up with worn-out tools;
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings,
And never breathe a word about your loss:
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings — nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much:
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And which is more;
you'll be a Man, my son!
Garfield : Parties R My Life
May spirits be bright!
William Butler Yeats
Although crowds gathered once if she but showed her face,
And even old men's eyes grew dim, this hand alone,
Like some last courtier at a gypsy camping-place
Babbling of fallen majesty, records what's gone.
These lineaments, a heart that laughter has made sweet,
These, these remain, but I record what's gone.
Will gather, and not know it walks the very street
Whereon a thing once walked that seemed a burning cloud.
My blog originally was supposed to be about women.Then I found so many
lost people on the blog and it got into the God arena and then I saw so
many do not even understand religion and that God is not a person. Then
my kids asked me how can Jesus be part of the triad? No amount of explaining would do it for them until I finally told them
God is an entity of knowledge.He is positive energy. He
is every where and in every thing and he can enter into your life when
ever he pleases by just touching you.
He can make every one his, except
this is not the way he wants it. He wants you to come to him because
you understand and the reason behind this goes back to Adam and Eve who
wanted free will.
So he left them with the 10 Commandments.
Now that I am done teaching, I lost my momentum as to
what I was supposed to make this blog about and now kinda lost my incentive. In
the mean time I seem to have touched upon bad energy which again I have
to make realize that they are in a bad place.
These people need help in a
bad way but not from me. I am here only to explain things and some people understood and I got through to them
and I am grateful and in the mean time anyone reading this blog can read what I wrote and maybe I will touch someone else in a good way.
Well in the New Year I hope to do other things and maybe then things will go better. Never in my life did I ever think I would have to defend God.
But he needs defending. We
take it for granted that we always do the right things but we dont,
cause if we did, we would not have so many problems today.
I hope every one is enjoying their holiday and stays in good spirits and cheer.
Nothing better than leftovers after the big Christmas meal.
Really enjoying looking at the two trees I have
up with all the lights.
America made fun of North Koreas' Kim and Kim
called the US President a monkey lol
Now are these grown ups or what?
lol Time to start another war lol
Sometimes you have to take things with a grain of salt.
Sometimes I think freedom of speech is going overboard.
but better to have tolerance that be so serious every time
someone says something you don't like.
Movie producers should not make some of the movies
they make, knowing who is going to watch especially in these
delicate political times Or maybe they do it on purpose
like they do everything else.
The public doesn't seem to care, knowing two wrongs don't
make a right and then if shit happens every one is up in arms.
Could have done better enjoying Christmas without another
plane falling down too.
Well I won;t watch Kims comedy and will continue to look at my trees
I worked so hard over.
A Very Merry Christmas to all and
Peace on Earth
Good Will to All Men!
A magical spirit
A soul of hope
A guiding light
To show us the way home
A love divine
A tear so kind and
Open hearts to all sitting blind.
A life of lives
Eternal and small
God gave us Christmas
He loves us ALL!
A Lady's Life
This is Blackcomb Mountain, in Whistler.
We went up to
Whistler to get a breath of
It was lovely with all
We had lunch at the Village and then drove home.
We hardly ever have snow but being surrounded by
always have a mountain here or there to look at.
You can never get enough of all this beauty.
Makes life worth living just to see another day.
This angel I call a toasting Angel
cause she sits on a
can of coke.lol
She is faceless cause her face is a bulb but for some reason
the black couch is reflecting a face so she looks like
she has a mask on and is ready for Mardi Gras or a masquerade
New Years Ball.
She has a stuffed upper body and is about 10 inches tall.
The dress is crocheted in baby wool.
I can still make her taller
but I had no patience. Maybe later I will lengthen the skirt so she is bigger.
She looks wonderful on my coffee table and ginger bread man is behind her
full of cookies.
What is good about these angels is that after Christmas you can use them
to cover a roll of toilet paper or a bottle of perfume and as you can see
a can of coke you want to hide from people, who otherwise drink
all your stash.lol They'll never look under there.
As usual the picture does not do her justice
This little angel was made with a tree bulb.
I made a doily and stuck it to the bottom.
It was easy cause the hookie thingy comes out
and then you
insert the doily and then put the hookie thingy back
don't even have to spoil your doily with glue or anything.
Then you just glue the hair on top of the head and put a string
and its ready to hang.
Later you can just hang the head and reuse the doily or maybe
attach a body to it.
Each Angel is about 6 inches tall.
Boy this video covers everything.
Puts a lot into perspective and makes so much sense.
and to think I wasn't going to watch it.
Well my 8 dolls are up in the tree.
They look like something out of Lord of the Rings.
I also made 4 angels to my surprise, using bulbs for heads.
They turned out wonderful.
It was totally unexpected.
My clay birds and clay tree decorations are up.
The tree is lit and I am putting my stuff away cause
there is no end to it all. lol
The damp weather is playing havoc with my body.
Shoulders are sore, wrists, knees ,ankles, neck . lol
You reach a certain age, you need to walk around with an oil can
to grease joints up. lol
Wish it was that simple lol
Every day is different.
Tomorrow is house cleaning day.
Have to pull out my steam cleaner.
Today there was so much screaching outside.
Seems two birds got into a fight and just now more scratching is heard in the fireplace.
Would not be good to have guests up there lol
We have bunnies running around
Maybe one of them was attacked.Hope not.
Now what would life be without Glen Miller.
I enjoyed listening to him today.
It looks like a very nice day today.
I am still working on my dolls
The tree is finally lit up and we can enjoy some Christmas spirit
in betwixt all what is happening in the world.
I managed to wrap a few token gifts just to get the whole thing started.
I managed to play jingle bells on my piano lol
Its the simplest one to play but I think I am getting a grip on Fur Elise too.
In highschool I wanted to play the violin but got stuck with the big base.
I figure I better start using the piano or I will never have a chance to as every year one gets older
and time is becoming shorter to learn. lol
I am still sad cause if I had been given the violin or even a viola to play, I
would have been proficient at it today because I loved it.
But teachers push you to do what they need and not what you want.
Most of life is like this. You do things because you have to and not because you want to.
In the end... Life is not all about you but about every one around you.
I got my son a sax to play at school but he was not very into it either and just did it
to make us happy. Then other kids would have loved to be given the chance he
was given to learn a few instruments.
Thing is, it's nice to be able to know how to play a few things at home.
Music is always good to know.
Hope you have a wonderful day.
A Special Birthday Cake told by a child.
Children are a joy and a blessing and make life worth living
and the whole world lights up around them,
just like a great birthday cake.
I lucked out. Usually I dont like making dough cause of all the mess
but lately I have been making it
and it always comes out so poofy and nice, it gets me all excited.
So I had enough for pizza crust and 27 large meat pyrogy and one ball to freeze to use later and to see if it will be just as good, cause then I will freeze more.
I made ribs and after a day of dishes I was glad to finish.
I sprayed my dolls and now they are ready to dress.
When you have a whole bunch of dolls sitting together, it makes you fall in love with them
and mine are coming out nicer and nicer with each effort.
Each one is so different and adds character and color and each one has a story.
No wonder kids love to play with them.
Yesterday I watched a movie and one actor said:
"Police have rules and criminals don't".
This brought my eye brows up cause it fit right in with all
what is happening right now between the police and the public.
The public is raising heck over police shooting of people but
they are missing the point.
Much of the blame lies with the public.
The public does not know how to behave in public.
The public is rude and arrogant and unpredictable.
We raise children as lost souls, robbing them of their child hood.
No wonder the police does not see them as such.
We watch programs of how police here in BC have to talk a person down
when he is high and edgy. Here they know chances of a person being armed is small
but they could be armed with an infected needle.
They could spit at you and this could be equally deadly.
The worse the public they deal with becomes, the harder their job and frankly,
they are not paid enough to put themselves in such jeopardy.
Police also have families to go home to who love them.
Now the issues here are not "human rights", or "blacks have a right to live".
Every one has a right to live.
The issue here consists of behavior.
A child should be a child. An adult has to behave like an adult and not like a child.
An adult is more accountable and responsible for his own life and righteousness.
When the public behaves like unruly, unpredictable children, a policeman has a right
to self defense and this results in a bad end.
The public should not fear the police but then the police should not fear the public either.
Thing is today....police fear the public and this is what has to be addressed.
This is a very interesting and informative video.
I enjoyed watching it.
Last night was terrible The winds were blowing all night
and we thought the electricity would go out at any time and this would not be good .
They would take a long time to come back.
80,ooo people in Vancouver are without electricity this morning.
I am slowly putting my doll bodies together. They look so cute sitting like old buddies
inter reacting. lol
Once I dress them up they will be nice.
The heads are much bigger.
Yesterday shopping I met a woman and she asked me if I was ready for Christmas.
I told her no. Not much in the mood after watching all the news on TV.
She answered, well come to my house and make sour krout pyrogies.
I burn my hands frying them
My Mom made sour krout progies and they were very tasty.
She would fry onion and sour krout and then put them into yeast dough and fry them
They were so good.
So I laughed and told her OK I will come.
I loved her free old fashioned nature so rarely seen today. Those were how the old people behaved and always gave you a feeling of belonging.
"So, come to my house" they'd always invite.
Today we don't do this much. We have to be very selective who we invite to the house
cause you never know what they would have up their sleeve. You might wake up the next morning
either dead or half dead.
Disappointing about Bill Cosby. It is unbelievable that he would do such a thing to so many women.
Why would he have to?
I just don't believe all these woman would sit there back then and be afraid to expose him when he supposedly did these things. I know if he did this to me I would, regardless and especially, if I knew I was drugged.
I would be petrified to have been given something very bad to hurt me and the doctor would be the first person I'd go to see. Drugs and sex could loose a person a career a lot faster than exposure to a crime could. So ... all these stories seem incredible to me.
I can't believe so many women were/are so stupid. There must be more to this story as to why they all stayed quiet and they are not as innocent as they claim.
As for the 15 year old. Where were her parents that she was drinking and went to a play boy mansion alone with a stranger? Did the parents not know where she was?
That took a lot of time to do. Any smart girl knows never to do things like this.
This is all so unlike Schwartznegger who some women also tried to accuse of sexual misconduct but then other women came to his rescue and said Arnold..... any time baby.. A n y t i m e. lol
Just seems a bad time to have all this come out, when he is almost at the end , in the autumn of his life.
Goes to show. You just never know.
Underwood sang How Great Thou Art so well and the audience, full of actors,
was as touched by her as I was.
Gill did well beside her on guitar.
Well the weather is still wet but at least the winds stopped.
Every one was afraid Tsawwassen Beach would flood the homes
They are so close to the water and level with it. When the tide comes in
along with 5 ft waves, It's not something you like to see.
They put up walls but one crumpled and went down.
Making dolls is a long process but I will end up with 8 for Christmas.
4 are already sitting in the tree. These next guys have bigger heads and
I want to make them pudgy. lol They will have cloth torsos
I put together the arms and legs and they look like little robots from I Robot.
Then the dressing part so they look like elves will be tricky.
The worst part about doing stuff is collecting all the items at bargain prices.
Micheals is the worst. They sell lots but lets face it it must all come from China
but the prices are like triple and even 4 x the price.
When they say they have something on the net and you go there, they say oh we don't carry that.
You have to go to the big stores in tim buck two.
Fancy that. lol
Of course trying to get it to their store cause of customer demand is not something they do.
They had some thread on special for 1.99 so I took it and they charged 3.99. I told them no
the sign said 1.99. You have to watch cause they cheat you. So she did not like it
that I refused to buy it.
When you get upset about how hard it is to shop with them, they get huffy.
In the mean time this store shut down so many small local outlets where it was
convenient and cheaper to get stuff. The clay carving tools were like 4.99 and with them they charge 23.99. Where is the logic?
Now people sell from homes and I am not one that likes to go to private homes.
Well nothing one can do That's a sign of the times.
It sure is a catchy title. Catching Life by the Throat by Josephine Hart
It features 8 great poets among other things. Looks like a good read.
It sure is windy today.
And dull and dark.
I woke up at 4 and then fell back to sleep at 6 and it still hasn't stopped pelting
Guess to day I'll make pork chops and soup.
I cleaned the fridge drawers so they can be filled up again with veggies.
We never had so much wind before. I hope my balcony plants survive.
Beau is outside and we keep asking him to come in but he doesn't, so it must not be that bad.
He will have to come in and then he will whine to go outside again.
-- I watched a movie with Nicholas Cage, "Joe", and had night mares all night.
It was about killing trees so the forest people could cut them down and replace them with small ones
but mainly it was about the lives of these people who worked doing this job. Some worked hard but some were worthless drunks. One stole water and never worked. He killed other drunks to rip them off of their
money wine and drugs. These brain fried people, fight for stupid reasons and even sell
their daughters for a drink.
I remember in the country one man did this to his daughter. He sold her
for sex, for a few drinks. She had a bad reputation but I just felt so bad for her.
It reminded me of those days.
I had long forgotten about them..
Maybe this is why I am so verbal these days about how bad things can get and so saying yes to everything is not the right thing to do.
I remember my parents, who took to looking after this young girl who got married way too young.
She went to New York to be a strip tease dancer. She would come back and tell my Mom all these stories I was not allowed to hear. One day she came to show her a rash on her hands and my Mom told her it was VD and she had better go to the hospital. She fell in love with this man in NY and lived with him and his mom. The man pimped her out. She came back home with a daughter and told the man to stay away.
She raised the child herself and became a born again.
It's an ugly world out there.
I told my husband boy this "Joe" story is soo out of reality it's not funny.
Cage saved a girl and her 15 year old brother from their drunk Father who beat his family. He said he took care of his family when in fact his family took care of him . He stole their food and money . In the end Cage got shot protecting the kids. He killed a few bad
guys and the Father jumped off a bridge.
I don't remember what I dreamed but I know it had to do with the movie..
The dogs were hiding beside me from the wind. They get scared.
