The Light of Life

gericault derby at epsom


I send you the light of life
Disguised as a candle
I send you a stone
Smoothed of rough edges
I give you a foundation
To build your home
I warn against deception
To further Peace.

In return,
Do not toss me to and fro
Do not throw me to the wind
Do not ambush the love, the faith
Nor the belief in me
Do not dim the light.

A Lady's Life.
The light symbolizes God and the Holy Spirit and Life
The Stone = character, chipped of rough edges
Foundation = laws to live by
Deception speaks for itself -means false prophets promoting hate and pain.


Haiku?

Sacred friendship
Ring of fire
Dented, scarred, alive.

==================

Yesterday I watched a movie where a killer tried to explain the insignificance of man.
He said if you look at an atom it is soo small you can see through it and yet it is soo powerful that if you split it it explodes with such ferocity.
In essence, man, as well as everything we see and touch including the floors, is see through and basically does not exist and yet, together with the reflection of light, we see and we can touch.
So in essence if we do not exist then self destruction is not possible and this he made as an excuse for using nuclear power against people.

It is fascinating how man can misinterpret things.
God says he gave us life to live and the 7 senses to enjoy living with.

So whether we exist per se, is irrelevant.

A miracle happened. A miracle Angels would love to share but can't and even in death, these atoms do not explode but if they are nuclear and powerful, they will continue to live
basically forever with all we know about radiation.

It is amazing that we fear radiation and yet it lives within us, a magical force both hot and cold, both powerful and at rest, peaceful and beautiful.

Something to think about.

A man is flying in a hot air balloon and realizes he is lost. He reduces height and spots a man down below. He lowers the balloon further and shouts: "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised my friend I would meet him half an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."

The man below says: "Yes. You are in a hot air balloon, hovering approximately 30 feet above this field. You are between 40 and 42 degrees N. latitude, and between 58 and 60 degrees W. longitude."

"You must be an engineer" says the balloonist.

"I am" replies the man. "How did you know."

"Well" says the balloonist, "everything you have told me is technically correct, but I have no idea what to make of

your information, and the fact is I am still lost."

The man below says "You must be a manager."

"I am" replies the balloonist, "but how did you know?"

"Well", says the man, "you don't know where you are, or where you are going. You have made a promise which you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. The fact is you are in the exact same position you were in before we met, but now it is somehow my fault."
====================================

True friends are like Diamonds... they are real and rare. False friends are like leaves... they are scattered everywhere.


====================================

A ring is round and has no end.... and that's how long I'll be your friend.
=================================================

Lets make it a day of friendships.
Enjoy.
:)

Entranced - I Can't Sleep


























I heard you call
Like an echo in the wind
I heard my name
Like a whisper on a breath
So warm and breezy
Caressing curls in my hair
I felt you

I heard you cry
So deep in sleep
I saw your dream
Our noses touched
I heard my name
I saw the tear

And you were mine
So warm, our cheeks caressed
A whisper on a breath
An echo in the wind
I heard you call
Entranced, I came running
To keep you safe
So you could sleep.

If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

Instead of talking to your plants, if you yelled at them would they still grow, but only to be troubled and insecure?

Orchid of Life



My time is your time
And your time is mine
Your love is my love
And my love is thine
We walk through life together
It was no plan

It was pre planned forever
before our time

My time is your time
And your time is mine
Our song we sing together
Before our time

Hold on, for the big ride
We'll make the finish line

Because my time is your time
And your love is mine.

a day of glass you tube.


Frank came into his wife's room one day. "If I were disfigured, would you still love me?" he asked her.

"Darling, I'll always love you," she said calmly, filing her nails.

"How about if I became crippled and couldn't hug you any more?" he asked nervously.

"Don't worry, darling, I'll always love you," she told him, buffing her nails.

"Well, how about if I lost my job as vice president?" Frank went on, "If I wasn't pulling in six figures any more, would you still love me then?"

The woman looked over at her husband's worried face. "Frank, I'll always love you," she reassured him, "but most of all, I'll really miss you."

lol


Be good to yourself today

The Good Egg


This card dates back to 1976. It was sent me by my Cousin Natalie.
She is what I can call a good egg. lol
Come to think of it, I have a lot of good eggs around me.
:)

My Cousin always loved horses like I do, except she rode them at her 4H Club in New York and then after getting married, her hubby got her a few beauts she loves and trains.
One she got as a colt and had to nurse to health and now she shows him.

Horses are a serious business and boy did I get a thrill when she let me sit on one, very well trained, gray Appaloosa named Blue I believe. I will never forget that day.
She explained to me that when you are training a horse for show only one person should ride it so horse and rider become one.

The only other horse I rode was this old whiskered wise guy in Quebec. I took him cause I thought he'd be the safest for my riding experience. lol
He sure knew his trail and was not exactly a follower.

We had a very muddy place to ride in and he took me away from all the dirt, over clean areas , and he didn't care if there was a tree branch to topple me off of him. lol
He was the boss and I just sat on him. lol

When we got back to the barn all the other horses were full of mud and when it came to my horse and me, he was in pristine condition while I needed a bath.
I was kinda sad cause every one else had a horse to clean and I had nothing. lol

This is where you bond with a horse when you fuss over it not like he cared to bond much with me at his age. lol All he wanted was the sugar cubes and the carrots.
He knew he had a job to do so he gets fed that day, so it was business as usual.
It's important to support riding stables for this reason alone.

I can say from that day forward, my respect for horses went up 100 fold.
I thought they were extremely, intelligent animals and although they like to travel in groups, they don't necessarily all think the same way.

I thought if you have a friend in a horse, its a friend for life. There's no telling when you will need him to get you out of a jam and so the friendship is mutual.

Good eggs come in all sizes and genetic make up. Doesn't matter if they are 2 footed or 4 footed, or with wings, each is designed unique.
Each wants to live.
Each has a preordained destiny.

Do you ever wonder why a certain animal or person is attracted to you and vs? There could be many pups but then there is just that special one that gives you a look or a special wag and you say ....
hey....you are for me.
Well this sort of thing was pre ordained. You were meant to have this animal for a reason and vs.
and then the story comes out as to why.

When I look at my other half I think ...we were pre ordained. I needed him in way I needed no other and he took my fancy.
Now I know men will laugh at the next statement because men are simple. lol

I attracted him for a special reason as well, going much deeper than what guys look for in women. lol
Otherwise we would not be together after 37 years.
We always told our friends who'd ask if they should marry, that if they had to ask, it wasn't the right one.

No, we will grow old together. We are growing old together lol

And the kids watch and shake their heads saying boy, the two of you are of one mind and they can't figure it out.
Well yes and no. lol
He is still who he is and I am who I am but together, we are something else.

I guess we are two good eggs with two good egglings to raise trying to make sense , like everyone else, of this world we live in.
We want goodness to reign, families to be raised with good experiences.
We want a world with food on the table and clean fresh water.
We want to see good business not funny business.

Good makes for good but if you do bad, well what goes around comes around in full circle.
And we are seeing this happening right now. Things out of control.
People we trusted, who asked us for trust, betraying the good will of the people.

So who do we trust now? Certainly not men.
So we trust in God because he is there to teach us through our own mistakes and hopes we learn as we hope our children learn.

So I hope by talking about it, we can all one day realize that we have to be on the same page, working towards the same goals and felling one by one, those who exceed greed and heinous acts, by doing things beyond what is considered acceptable behavior.
Our country requires we be guided by the holy spirit which is a uniting force enveloping us all who enter and accepting it, as an existent force.

Man is not different.
Mankind , humanity, is all the same.


Once there was a dishonest painter who used to water down his paint far too much. One day, as he was painting the steeple of a church building, thunderclouds gathered and rain washed all his thinned-down paint away. Then followed a booming voice out of heaven, saying, "Repaint, and thin no more." (repent and sin no more)

----------------------

Once a generous Rabbi went to work in the colony of a people called "the Trids." As he was among them, a large and menacing giant appeared on the scene and began abusing the Trids. He picked them up and threw them down and began kicking them mercilessly.

"Hey, stop picking on those poor Trids," the Rabbi interjected. "And stop kicking them. If you must kick someone, kick me instead."

The giant replied, "Silly Rabbi, kicks are for Trids." ( silly rabbit tricks are for kids)

Squirrels Sharing Paradise.

I am so glad I keep my post cards. lol

A police officer sees a man driving around with a pickup truck full of Squirrels. He pulls the guy over and says...
"You can't drive around with squirrels in this town! Take them to the zoo immediately."
The guy says "OK"... and drives away.
The next day, the officer sees the guy still driving around with the truck full of squirrels, and they're all wearing sun glasses. He pulls the guy over and demands...
"I thought I told you to take these squirrels to the zoo yesterday?"
The guy replies...
"I did . . . today I'm taking them to the beach!"

Father Son Hunting Trip

A father and son went hunting together for the first time.
The father said "Stay here and be very QUIET. I’ll be across the field."

A few minutes later, the father heard a blood curdling scream and ran back to his son.

"What’s wrong?" the father asked. "I told you to be quiet."

The son answered" "Look, I was quiet when the snake slithered across my feet. I was quiet when the bear breathed down my neck."
"But when the two squirrels crawled up my pant legs and said, should we eat them here or take them with us?"

Not a word out of you my friend!!!

When is a pig a pig?

Once upon a time there were three little pigs. The straw pig, the stick pig, and the brick pig.
One day this nasty old wolf came up to the straw pigs house and said, "I'm gonna huff and puff and blow your house down." And he did!
So the straw pig went running over to the stick pig's house and said "Please let me in, the wolf just blew down my house." So the stick pig let the straw pig in.
Just then the wolf showed up and said, "I'm gonna huff and puff and blow your house down." And he did!
So the straw pig and the stick pig went running over to the brick pigs house and said," Let us in, let us in, the big bad wolf just blew our houses down."
So the brick pig let them in just as the wolf showed up. The wolf said " I'm gonna huff and puff and blow your house down." The straw pig and the stick were so scared! But the brick pig picked up the phone and made a call.
A few minutes passed and a big, black stretch limo pulls up. Out step two massive pigs in pin striped suits and fedora hats. These pigs come over to the wolf, grab him by the neck and beat the living crap out of him. Then one of them pulled out a gun and fired killing the wolf. Then they got back into their limo and drove off.
The straw pig and stick pig were amazed! "Who the heck were those guys?" they asked.
"Those were my cousins from Jersey -- the Guinea Pigs."

lol

Happy Monday !!!

Disarm


Disarm with beauty
Disarm with grace
Disarm with peace
Disarm with the quiet spirit of a pale cherry blossom
Disarm with a smile
Disarm with the word of the one true God.

Arm with beauty
Arm with grace
Arm with peace
Arm with the quiet spirit of a pale cherry blossom
Arm with a smile
Arm with the word of the one true God.

You can win the battle as well as the war
Through patience and love
Soothing the beast who comes to disbar.
Expressing through letters
with words controlled,
How love entangles and can't be destroyed but
The future moves on and
Choices remain to be made
To right the wrongs
Steer clear of the bad

Disarm for the future
Disarm the past
Breathe deep, to clear out the heart.

Hold the hand that once gently caressed yours
Look in the eyes where once you were lost
Speak of the tender moments you both once had
The birth of the children and all the hard times

When all's understood and the anger deflated
A brand new day in freedom,
Will be there to awaken.

A Lady's Life.

--------------------------------

A lady tells her husband to go to the store to buy some cigarettes. He walks down to the store only to find it closed. So he goes into a nearby bar to use the vending machine. At the bar he sees a beautiful woman and starts talking to her.

They have a couple of beers and one thing leads to another and they end up in her apartment. After they've had their fun, he realizes its 3am and says, "Oh no, its so late, my wife's going to kill me. Have you got any talcum powder?" She gives him some talcum powder, which he proceeds to rub on his hands and then he goes home.

His wife is waiting for him in the doorway and she is pretty angry. "Where the hell have you been?"

"Well, honey, it's like this. I went to the store like you asked, but they were closed. So I went to the bar to use the vending machine. I saw this great looking girl there and we had a few drinks and one thing led to another and I ended up in bed with her."

"Oh yeah? Let me see Your hands!" She sees his hands are covered with powder and... "You damned liar!!! You were playing pool again!!!"


Have a good one folks :)





Kittie Cats A Watchin

On a cold February
Two Kitty Cats sat
By the window as warm as could be
They watched the birds
The squirrels and the bunnies
Searching for some where to hide.

On a cold February
Two Kitty Cats sat
With tummies as full as can be
They watched the squirrels
The birds and the bunnies
Scrounging in dirt for a bite

On a cold February
Two Kitty Cats sat
Bored as bored could be
They watched the squirrels
The birds and the bunnies
Wishing that they too were free.

On a frost covered day
The squirrels birds and bunnies
Tried to find ways to enter a home
They saw the kitties so warm and so pretty
And thought boy.. what a great life.

Not Everything is as it seems.:)



---------------------------------------------------------------------


The Devil tells a Real Estate Agent, “Look, I can make you richer, more famous, and more successful than any Real Estate Agent alive. In fact, I can make you the greatest agent that ever lived.”

“Well,” says the Real Estate Agent, “what do I have to do in return?”

The Devil smiles, “Well, of course you have to give me your soul,” he says, “but you also have to give me the souls of your children, the souls of your children’s children and, as a matter of fact, you have to give me the souls of all your descendants throughout eternity.”

“Wait a minute,” the Real Estate Agent says cautiously, “What’s the catch?”


I would say this joke hits the nail on the head.
Real Estate people do not sell you homes. They sell you interest.
They do not care about the house They want the land.
Theoretically speaking, if the house is not attached to the foundation
you should be able to pick it up with a truck and move it out cause it's a moveable.

And if the land is worth more than what you owe in mortgage, then how can they say they are allowed to take away your assets for a few months back payments?
You can sell it yourself or you can take your house off the property and sell it and pay off the land again, and build another house.

People need to dig in and fight and look for discrepancies and not allow these real estate people to run you off your land. The U.S. MLA was right when she said dig in and fight.

I felt very bad for the couple who went on TV and told everyone they had a heritage farm,
kept in the family for over 100 years and they lost it cause they were bled to death by the mortgage company. This is how they obtain property today, by scamming hard working clean honest people. Not only do they destroy your life for gain they have not earned, but they destroy your good family name and thus that of your children.
Nothing is left but to fight back. Go public and fight back.

A Molten String of Love and Trust


George Carlin said man has thrown away all sense of sanity. He has not been using his gift of a brain to live and make peace with mankind animals nor the environment.
As a result man struggles to survive every day.
The world lacks in tolerance and forgiveness.
People become cold, calculating and greedy.
As the negative instead of the positive become entrenched into daily life,
people and planet become weaker for how can you win, fighting against yourself?

There is no yin and yang in life.
There is only one, tied together, by positive and negative forces.
These magnetic forces do not separate us but tie us all together.

United we stand - Divided we fall.
So work ....... united.
-------------------------------------

The flickering lights in a deep dark sky
Know when we're apart
For one by one they fall and die
Like cinders in my heart
You leave me always in despair
Each time you go away
You break me up and leave my life
In cruel disarray.

I sit and watch the stars by night
And wonder if they could
Just for an instant make you stop
And take a good long look
Reflect upon what we do have
Each others' strong embrace
Our eyes could see each others' soul
Through crowds and walls and distant space.

There is only you and me
a child and a small dog
A love so pure and molten
No sword or knife could cut.

But then when you're away my dear
The view becomes a haze
Other stars begin to carry
The string of memories we made.
And we're lost between their lights
And search in vain, to find
The string that held us close ,
A flutter and untied

The Universe sits in splendor
It's colored and lit up
A fireworks display of motion
Disappears as fast as it lights up
And every day I sit a thinkin
It can never be untied..........

Melted hot and molten
Our silken string is strong
No sword or knife can cut it
or untie it in wind.

Little Johnny and his family were having Sunday dinner at his Grandmother's house. Everyone was seated around the table as the food was being served.
When Little Johnny received his plate, he started eating right away. 'Johnny! Please wait until we say our prayer.' said his mother.

'I don't need to,' the boy replied. 'Of course, you do.' his mother insisted. 'We always say a prayer before eating at our house.' 'That's at our house.' Johnny explained. 'But this is Grandma's house and she knows how to cook!'

Pete was in the restaurant yesterday when suddenly realized he desperately
needed to pass gas. The music was really, really loud, so he timed his
gas with the beat of the music.

After a couple of songs, he started to feel better. he finished his coffee,
and noticed that everybody was staring at him....

Then he suddenly remembered that he was listening to his iPod.

A Copper Day



I pulled this piece out. I don't know if anyone remembers them being made in copper and then they paint it and it's ready to hang on the wall. After all these years, it still looks brand new and never tarnished.

These ladies are busy with the water and milk cans.
They are wearing traditional folk robes and head covers.

It is extremely chilly this morning and they say it will be a very cold day ahead.
Guess its soup day. lol

The long line of solemn men and women advanced up the church aisle. One by one they paused before the altar to lay bouquets on an open coffin. All except one woman. Instead of flowers, she set a bowl of steaming gumbo beside the dearly departed's face. "Why did you do that?" an usher asked, "This man's soup-eating days are over." "Oh?" She replied, "You think he's still smelling the roses?"

"How did the cannibal cook respond when complimented on his soup?" "It's all relatives.

"When is rabbit soup not good?" "When there's a hare in it."

"Who is the head of a soup factory?" "Souperman" (7-year-old Californian Marguerite, bless her heart)
How do you make gold soup? With 22 carrots
When is soup musical? When its piping hot.
What do you call 2,000 pounds of Chinese soup? Won Ton

One Sunday after church Mom asked her very young daughter what the lesson was about. Her daughter answered "Don't be scared, you'll get your quilts."
Needless to say, mom was perplexed. Later in the day, the
Pastor stopped by for tea. Mom asked him what that morning's Sunday school lesson was about.
He said "Be not afraid, thy comforter is coming."

A kindergarten teacher gave her class a "show and tell" assignment. Each student was instructed to bring in an object to share with the class that represented their religion.

The first student got up in front of the class and said, "My name is Benjamin and I am Jewish and this is a Star of David."

The second student got up in front of the class and said, "My name is Mary. I'm a Catholic and this is a Rosary."

The third student got in up front of the class and said, "My name is Tommy. I am Methodist, and this is a casserole."

Moods Warmth and Truth in Flowers



All things in life are temporary.
If going well enjoy it, they will not last forever.
If going wrong don't worry, they can't last long either.

Stutterers Living in the USA - from Howard D - added January 25, 2009

During the Buffalo conference, a busload of us went up to Canada. When we got to the border upon our return to the US, an immigration officer came on board the bus.

In a less than friendly, and far too authoritarian tone, he told us that all he needed to know from each of us was our country of citizenship. He then proceeded down the aisle, stopping at each row of seats, and pointing to each person. "Citizenship?" he said, as he pointed at each person.

Talk about performance anxiety! The first couple of "U...U...U...S's" seemed to go over his head, but after a few more, he started getting suspicious, curious, and concerned. Finally, someone explained to him who we were, and he relaxed.

But it was one of the funniest stuttering experiences of my life.

============================================

Moods


Insane I walk on full moons beams

I know the path. I walk up streams.

They cool my feet while my soul burns

Like hot red coals on water steams

The embers flick off of my brain

And scatter quickly but refrain

From speaking out explaining why

It is they flicker, just to die.


So aimlessly and without cause

Like me, they circle up and pause

Then look around as though to see

IF someone else lurks round like me.


Then clouds surround and crowd the moon

My eyes they close, I start to swoon,

Oh blissful sleep, how long I've waited

The peace you bring is clearly understated.

The embers cool, my feet grow warm

Insanity departs in scorn

And leaves me all alone to lie

Till morrow brings a friendlier sky

Starch is used as a binder in the production of paper. It is the use of a starch coating that controls ink penetration when printing. Your elbows get black when you have them on your morning paper because the paper does not have much starch and is therefore cheaper paper.

Sterling silver is not pure silver. Because pure silver is too soft to be used in most tableware it is mixed with copper in the proportion of 92.5 percent silver to 7.5 percent copper.

A ball of glass will bounce higher than a ball of rubber. A ball of solid steel will bounce higher than one made entirely of glass.

If Lies were Truths

"Our Life is what our thoughts make it"
Marcus Aurelius

I love to collect post cards and this is an old one I found in my Farmhouse Kitchen Diary.
It has a collection of recipes suitable for the time of month.


Do you know why a car's WINDSHIELD is so large & the rear view
mirror is so small?
Because our PAST is not as important as our FUTURE. So, look ahead
and move on.
--------------------------------------

If lies were truths and truths were lies
The world would surely not survive
No one would know which one was which
The gray half truth, half lie could switch

Yet with the rise of each bright sun
I find myself excused by one
Perfected in the light of gray
Where truth and lie they meet half way.

I stamp my feet and pull my hair
How could anyone so dare
To trick me in this half wit way
Keep me in limbo so I stay

I know the difference in truth lies
That it is grounded while the other flies
So easy in its time of mirth, while so
Sombre in the eye of truth

When truth meets lie upon a bridge
It leads all men and beasts to twitch
All lie in dread of what's to come
Will victor be a liars son?

Of course not TRUTH is here to stay!
Like black and White, it's clear as day!
The bugles roar out proclamations
And liars spew out insinuations
The course of time is thus confronted
And truth insists it can't be stunted
For if it easily is swayed
All liars, they will have their way

You hold yourself in great esteem
In face of lies you want to scream
I'll tell you truth
I'll wheel and deal.I'll mimic ,joke, I'll even steal.
But in the end I promise you, that my self worth,
Will be the end of you.
In many truths you tell you'll see
You won't get far without little ol me.

Both men and beasts stood all confused
In face of lies who face the truths
And to this day you'll see them there
On bridge on high with long white hair

A world caught in time remains in limbo
Between truth and lie it's not so simple

The world would surely not survive
If lies were truths and truths were lies.
No one would know which one was which
The gray half truth, half lie could switch.

Tarnished Silver Tarnished Life



Today was an interesting day. It snowed wet snow and it was quite cloudy as we made our way into downtown Vancouver.
There was a huge accident of about 5 cars bumping each other and we had to wait a long time to get out of it.
At home we found my Mom's old tarnished tea pot and tray.
It is very old and now I have to think how I can clean it.
During the day I found a chip with a picture in it of a torso. I got all excited like a baby and called my son who came over and laughingly said: " Oh not again. You don't see things again?"

I laughed and said no you really have to examine it to see a muscular chest and abs. and even a belly button. He nodded his head and kissed my cheek and walked away.
I could hear his thoughts. Small things amuse small minds lol

I keep thinking of the lady who went on television with her famous chips pieces with pictures in them. She had quite a collection and was showing them to the audience. She was so careful not to break any

Reflecting on the tarnished tea pot another thing happened today which related to tarnished lives.
As we were leaving home, Global TV and Radio Canada were at my sons' High School.
They said 15 year old Laura Szendrei's killer was found. We were all stunned as to how they found him after so long and my son was on his blackberry trying to find out from friends what they knew.
And then the answer itself, was just like a blow on the head.
It was a young man who went to school with my son from Kindergarten.
A nice young handsome fair young man with a beautiful smile. We went to his birthday party and his family is so nice. He was arrested and will be in jail on first degree murder charges till his hearing on March 7th. His name and face were not posted because he was 17 last year but he will be charged as an adult.
Now they are wondering if he was also the fellow who attacked other women around our area.

He was in the park area and apparently left telling people he left because he saw Laura on the ground and it had such a profound affect on him (it seems they could see her brain) he needed therapy and then he went to Mexico for a month.

My son said he partied on New Years with them and didn't seem worse for wear but I guess it was heavy on his heart because he told his Dad and then the police came. Apparently they saw him at a local 7/11 surveillance camera changing his clothes because he had blood on them.

Laura's family said he looks like an angel and yet capable of doing devil things. They want to know why, because the attack seems to be without motive. The kids didn't know each other. They are still devastated, like it happened yesterday. I am sure I understand how they feel and we are all equally shocked as to who did it.

As much as I was angry something like this took place around our area, now that we know who it is who did it, we feel soo bad for the boys family. Laura's Father said he hopes the boys family now feels the way he does about losing his daughter which is unfair because the boys parents are innocent just as they are. They also have two more younger children in the neighborhood schools who will need to suffer their brothers guilt.
A boy like that in an adult jail will also be abused by the inmates. His young life is lost.

What a tragedy to befall two families.
It seems that this boy was always very quiet, shy and small . He was teased a lot and he spent a lot of time playing video killing games.
Is it possible these games affected him?

We also had a small boy at our school but he was so cool about it that because of his attitude, everyone loved him He was one of the most popular kids in school.


When this killing happened, the kids had an incident with another group of kids where bear spray was used, so at the beginning everyone thought one of these boys retaliated and ended up killing Laura because she squealed on them,
And on face book these boys seemed to be quite afraid to be accused of killing her.

The incident took place in the woods park by the school and I remember going to the school when my son was in kindergarten, to tell them that these woods have to be cut down so people could see inside. A lot of bad things were going on in there.
They are cut now, too little too late.
It always takes a tragedy before the right things get done and I can't understand why this is
this way all the time.

Well we are all shocked beyond belief especially my son. He said the girl was tiny and nice so why would he do this to her?

The girls parents will want to see the boy now to ask him "why?"

A very upsetting day.

I found 2 tarnished silver items today, which reflected 2 tarnished lives and a chip with a muscled torso.
Sorta like life, chipped away to resemble a strong young powerful life and yet destroyed by lifes' elements showing its' fragility.
A true BC tragedy .

The Past Comes Rushing By



Montreal

This was before my time but it feels so familiar, maybe because I watched so many movies of simpler times.
Like, To Kill a Mockingbird comes to mind.
The people were simple but very industrious.
They were adept at adapting to whatever life threw at them without much fuss.
Life and reality was what you saw every day.

The people in the middle picture could very well fit into a picture of the building of the railway or maybe Waltons' Mountain , or lumber workers.
The Garage is very familiar and we had such garages around where I lived in Montreal.

No fancy words.
Just GARAGE.
You come in and they fix everything and anything.
You could smell the grease and the oils and diesel. A mechanic was well respected . His hands were black and he always carried a rag to wipe them with and a hat was always part of the over all uniform. lol He fixed cars and poured gas and served coffee and always had time for a smile and a chat.

Every trucker seemed to be his own man with respect to the fixing of his own rig.
When you travelled on the road, the driver of a big rig was your best friend in the case of a break down. He always had the best professional heavy tools ready for any situation and they were always ready to help as opposed to today. The trucker mentality has changed drastically.
I remember I used to love the smell of gas as it was poured into the gas tank.
The price of a truck in the 1930's and 40's ranged from about $ 395 .00 to 1,500
They are probably all manual. Henry Ford apparently didn't like the idea of electric starters

You can still pick up a 1948 F1 Ford Pick up for 20k
A 1934 Ford id engine flatbed sells today for 16,950.00

One fellow is selling a 1938 ford truck for 1,500.00 Must need repairs. lol
another 1937 ford pick up is selling for $54,900.00

Thats quite an investment and where would you find the leaded gas today to run it?
Sort of a bummer for the old car collector who likes to take his prize out for a drive and for a show.

CARBURETOR PROBLEMS

A blonde had called a mechanic when her newly purchased 1965 Classic Chevrolet Corvette had broken down

'That's a lovely car,' says the mechanic. 'What seems to be the matter?'
Well, it just conked out I'm afraid.'
'Let me have look.' The mechanic set to work and ten minutes later the engine was purring like a cat again.
'Thank goodness,' she said. 'What was the matter ?'
'Simple really, just poop in the
carburetor,' he replied.
Looking shocked she asked, 'Oh, OK. How many times a week do I have to do that?'

---------------------------------------------

  • A man was on a cruise in the Bermuda Triangle. A storm appeared without warning and his ship went down. He was in a lifeboat and began rowing to save people in the water. Ahead he saw a man waiving - he recognized that it was his attorney. He stated: "We have to save him first, he saved my ass on my divorce". They began rowing towards the attorney as a pack of sharks began swimming there as well. They got there first and began circling the attorney and the circle got smaller and smaller. His friend stated: "Oh, no - they are going in for a feeding frenzy" as they closed in and threw the attorney up in the air. He landed - straddling two sharks on their backs and then they leisurely swam him to the lifeboat. The attorney stepped from their backs into the lifeboat. Everyone aboard the lifeboat couldn't believe what they just saw and asked: "What just happened?" The attorney replied: "Professional courtesy". -- thanks to Paul Edholm

    The Creator Created

    We are created and we create and some create less than others and others create more than others

    Below is something created that's really incredible to watch. What an imagination must this man have not to mention all the work required to put it all together. Enjoy!





    When was the longest day in the Bible?

    The day Adam was created because there was no Eve.

    -----------------------------------------------------

    Why God Created Animals

    A newly discovered chapter in the Book of Genesis has provided the answer to "Where do pets come from?" Adam said, "Lord, when I was in the garden, you walked with me everyday. Now I do not see you anymore. I am lonesome here and it is difficult for me to remember how much you love me."

    And God said, "No problem! I will create a companion for you that will be with you forever and who will be a reflection of my love for you, so that you will love me even when you cannot see me. Regardless of how selfish or childish or unlovable you may be, this new companion will accept you as you are and will love you as I do, in spite of yourself."

    And God created a new animal to be a companion for Adam. And it was a good animal. And God was pleased. And the new animal was pleased to be with Adam and he wagged his tail. And Adam said, "Lord, I have already named all the animals in the Kingdom and I cannot think of a name for this new animal."

    And God said, "No problem! Because I have created this new animal to be a reflection of my love for you, his name will be a reflection of my own name, and you will call him DOG."

    And Dog lived with Adam and was a companion to him and loved him. And Adam was comforted. And God was pleased. And Dog was content and wagged his tail.

    After a while, it came to pass that Adam's guardian angel came to the Lord and said, "Lord, Adam has become filled with pride. He struts and preens like a peacock and he believes he is worthy of adoration. Dog has indeed taught him that he is loved, but perhaps too well."

    And the Lord said, "No problem! I will create for him a companion who will be with him forever and who will see him as he is. The companion will remind him of his limitations, so he will know that he is not always worthy of adoration."

    And God created CAT to be a companion to Adam. And Cat would not obey Adam. And when Adam gazed into Cat's eyes, he was reminded that he was not the supreme being. And Adam learned humility.

    And God was pleased.
    And Adam was greatly improved.
    And Dog was happy.
    And the Cat didn't give a hoot one way or the other.

    The Certifiable World.

    By all means marry. If you get a good wife, you'll be happy. If you get a bad one, you'll become a philosopher...and that is a good thing for any man.
    Socrates

    Thank God my husband is no philospher lol Thats my job lol

    (oops?)

    I have an aunt by marriage who is suffering from Epilepsy. She had a hard life struggling with this disease and recently had a brain hemorrhage.
    Although she began to talk and answer questions, this morning the doctor said she was in deep sleep.
    So what does this all mean Coma?
    Is this the end? Well it would not be such a bad thing if God decided to take this poor woman and give her life everlasting where she could live in peace and tranquility.
    My own Mom got Parkinsons and Alzheimers as a side effect from the pills they gave her.
    The doctors over dozed her and damaged her brain and it went from there. She lived in the country and we had a plane fly by spraying the corn fields.
    The water of course, came from under the ground.

    The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four Americans are suffering from some form of mental illness. Think of your three best friends. If they're okay, then it's you."
    Rita Mae Brown

    So as a matter of curiosity, I began to do a little search as to how many people have brain afflictions.If it is of interest to me it might be of interest to many.
    First I found stats having to do with Schizophrenia.
    Australia has around 285,000 cases
    Britain has 280,000 cases,
    Canada has 280,000 plus
    the US has 2.2 million
    India has4.3 - 8.7 cases,
    china has 6- 12 million cases.
    They say it can be triggered by many things like stress in pregnancy, genes, marijuana and other brain altering drugs,
    People can begin having it from 15 years of age.
    In the US , in 2002, 62.7 billion was spent dealing with the issue of Schizophrenia.Out of three million people, 21,000 could have this affliction.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    Parkinsons world wide 6 million cases and many undiagnosed
    Canada has 100,000 cases of Parkinsons
    The US has around 1 000 000 cases
    Britain has 800,000 cases
    China around 1,200,000

    Italy 407 out of 100,000 population
    Nebraska, USA is very high 329.3 people/100,000

    from highest to lowest/100.000 pop
    Sweden 22.5/100,000 pop
    Faeroe Islands 21.1
    US 20.5/100,000 pop
    Japan 16.9
    Estonia 16.8/100,000 pop
    Finland 16.6
    Norway 12.6
    England 12/100,000 pop
    Bulgaria 11.6
    Netherlands 11.5
    Italy 10,4
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Alzheimers Dimentia
    India 3-4 mill
    US 4.5 mill
    Canada 420,000 and by 2031 they expect 3/4 million people to have it
    England 750,000
    Iran 6% of 4,200,00 people or 250,000 people Is Khomeini one of them? How about Khadafi?
    We know Reagan had it as President.
    France 1.3 mill expected to have it by 2020

    Brain Tumors in US
    On January 1, 2002, in the United States, there were approximately 105,960 people (56,865 men and 49,095 women) alive who had a history of brain cancer. This includes any person alive on January 1, 2002, who had been diagnosed with brain cancer at any point prior to January 1, 2002, people with active disease, and those who had been cured of their disease.

    Race/Ethnicity Men Women
    All Races 6.3 per 100,000 men 3.2 per 100,000 women
    Caucasian 5.6 per 100,000 men 2.8 per 100,000 women
    African American 12.8 per 100,000 men 6.3 per 100,000 women

    Hispanic 9.5 per 100,000 men 5.3 per 100,000 women
    Brain Cancer Statistics Article

    The current estimated human population for the planet earth in 2010 is 6,865,300,000 by the United States Census Bureau. The United Nations estimates that world population will be over the 7,000,000,000 mark in 2011. Recent U.N. organized surveys performed in multiple countries have found the average percentage of people who suffer from some sort of cancer is 31%. The American Cancer Society has found similar numbers in its studies of North and South America.

    I know a lot of people who died from brain tumors but did not find any quick stats available.
    I don't know why we sit worrying about wars etc. when most of the world is or will be insane pretty soon.

    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    Life is like a role of toilet paper; hopefully long and useful, but it always ends at the wrong moment.
    Rudyh

    ------------------------------

    yup

    We are all certifiable lol
    We are all the same where disease is concerned and if the brain is diseased then there is not much hope for anyone. So George Carlin was right when he mentioned the planet being able to take care of itself.
    People are dying from HIV. Germs know how to survive our antibacterial products. Cancer requires no oxygen to live . We destroy our planet and then sit rotting in hospitals where there are no answers.

    It is scary that the world today is also controlled by people who we do not know, and especially if when we do not know if they are sane or not.

    We probably wage wars because of insanity.
    We require answers as why we get disfunctional brains and solutions to this problem , sooner rather than later.

    The psychology instructor had just finished a lecture on mental health and was giving an oral test.

    Speaking specifically about manic depression, she asked, "How would you diagnose a patient who walks back and forth screaming at the top of his lungs one minute, then sits in a chair weeping uncontrollably the next?"

    A young man in the rear raised his hand and answered, "A basketball coach?"

    Mary was having a tough day and had stretched herself out on the couch to do a bit of what she thought to be well-deserved complaining and self- pitying.

    She moaned to her mom and brother, "Nobody loves me ... the whole world hates me!"

    Her brother, busily occupied playing a game, hardly looked up at her and passed on this encouraging word: "That's not true, Mary. Some people don't even know you."

    From the Northwest Florida Daily News comes this story:

    A Crestview couple who drove their car to Wal-Mart, only to have their car break down in the parking lot. The man told his wife to carry on with the shopping while he fixed the car in the lot. The wife returned later to see a small group of people near the car.

    On closer inspection, she saw a pair of male legs protruding from under the chassis. Although the man was in
    shorts, his lack of underpants turned private parts into glaringly public ones. Unable to stand the embarrassment, she dutifully stepped forward, quickly put her hand UP his shorts, and tucked everything back into place. She took a
    deep breath and stood up boldly to face the crowd.

    She looked across the hood and found herself staring at her husband, who had been standing idly by. The mechanic, however, had to have three stitches in his forehead…

    A Cover for a Lover


    This is a cover I am making and embroidering . I put the squares together in panels but will do some other things to it before putting it completely together.
    I already have the sides to attach to it compliments of my knitting machine. :)

    Pretty soon it will be ready to use for Christmas to bring color to a room and picture taking.
    I have to find some outlines to make hearts and birds, like an owl, to fill in the empty squares.
    Then I have to think what to put for the backing. Maybe I can quilt it as well.
    So far it looks great and I am quite happy with it.


    It's not Christmas but you have to see this crazy dog . He is having the time of his life playing. This is a great way to wash animals.



    I remember in Quebec we would have snow like in the video.
    My Mom would take out her Persian carpet from the living room and we would put snow on it
    and broom it on both sides.
    It would take all the dust out of it and clean it so when we would bring it back inside it smelled so fresh for another year. I don't remember my Mom ever using chemicals on it to wash it.
    Just plain fresh white snow.

    Three women go down to Mexico one night to celebrate college graduation,

    get drunk, and wake up in jail, only to find that they are to be executed in

    the morning, though none of them can remember what they did the night

    before.

    The first one, a redhead, is strapped in the electric chair and is asked

    if she has any last words. She says, "I just graduated from Trinity Bible

    College and believe in the almighty power of God to intervene on the behalf

    of the innocent."

    They throw the switch and nothing happens. They all immediately fall to

    the floor on their knees, beg for forgiveness, and release her.

    The second one, a brunette, is strapped in and gives her last words. "I

    just graduated from the Harvard School of Law and I believe in the power of

    justice to intervene on the part of the innocent."

    They throw the switch and again, nothing happens. Again they all

    immediately fall to their knees, beg for forgiveness and release her.

    The last one (you knew it), a blonde, is strapped in and says, "Well, I'm

    from A & M University and just graduated with a degree in

    Electrical Engineering, and I'll tell ya right now, ya'll ain't gonna

    electrocute nobody if you don't plug this thing in.

    Puzzling Affair



    I do not have any more children in the house but lots of memories stuck in boxes which need to be sorted.
    Some things need to be kept.
    Some sold in a garage sale.

    One thing I always liked doing is buying puzzles especially when I see nice ones on sale.
    They are always good, for all ages, to do .
    Kids and seniors can spend wonderful quality time, sitting doing these things over hot chocolate and good conversation.
    I remember my friend taking them to do when they went skiing.

    Something is nice about sitting beside a crackling fire watching the snow flakes and doing a nice puzzle with a brandy.

    Then what do you do with it, once it's finished?
    Well I like to glue them onto a poster board and then frame them.

    I find it pays to do if the puzzle is a nice one.
    Then if you want to sell it at a craft fair and/or give it as a present to some one, it usually is appreciated.

    I don't know what other people do with their elaborate puzzles once they are done.
    The last blog had a train puzzle and todays' is a bird and roses. I like both of them.

    Jokes



    A big shot business man had to spend a couple of days in the hospital.

    He was a royal pain to the nurses because he bossed them around just like he did his employees. None of the hospital staff wanted to have anything to do with him.

    The head nurse was the only one who could stand up to him. She walked into his room and announced, "I have to take your temperature."

    After complaining for several minutes, he finally settled down, crossed his arms and opened his mouth.

    "No, I'm sorry, the nurse stated, "but for this reading, I can't use an oral thermometer."

    This started another round of complaining, but eventually he rolled over and bared his behind.

    After feeling the nurse insert the thermometer, he heard her announce, "I have to get something. Now you stay JUST LIKE THAT until I get back!"

    She leaves the door to his room open on her way out. He curses under his breath as he hears people walking past his door, laughing. After almost an hour, the man's doctor comes into the room.

    "What's going on here?" asked the doctor.

    Angrily, the man answers, "What's the matter, Doc? Haven't you ever seen someone having their temperature taken before?"

    After a pause, the doctor replies, "Yes, but never with a daffodil!"
    Moral of the story ? Never cross your nurse.
    =================================================

    Times are a changin.

    An architect, an artist and an accountant were discussing whether it was better to spend time with the wife or a mistress.

    The architect said he enjoyed time with his wife, building a solid foundation for an enduring relationship.

    The artist said he enjoyed time with his mistress, because of the passion and mystery he found there.

    The accountant said, "I like both."

    "Both?"

    The accountant replied "Yeah. If you have a wife and a mistress, they will each assume you are spending time with the other woman, and you can go to the office and get some work done."

    Five cannibals get appointed as engineers in a Oil Company.

    During the welcoming ceremony the boss says: "You're all part of our team now. You can earn good money here, and you can go to the cafeteria for something to eat. So don't trouble the other employees".

    The cannibals promise not to trouble the other employees.

    Four weeks later the boss returns and says: "You're all working very hard, and I'm very satisfied with all of you. One of our cleaners has disappeared, however. Do any of you know what happened to her?" The cannibals disavow all knowledge of the missing cleaner.

    After the boss has left, the leader of the cannibals says to the others: "Which of you idiots ate the cleaning lady?".

    A hand raises hesitantly, to which the leader of the cannibals says: "You fool! For four weeks we've been eating Team Leaders, Task Leaders and Project Managers so no one would notice anything, and you have to go and eat the cleaning lady!"

    Rail Blaze



    My Bucket List contains things I still would love to do in my life.
    Since the list is long, I don't think I will ever have time to grow old, let alone die. lol

    One of these things is to go on a long train ride through mountains and valleys and watch the landscape change in color and smell.

    And if only the train could stop, when people would like to sight see a certain spot along the way.
    This would truly be grand.

    Here is a poem about the train of life
    Written By: Praveen

    Some folks ride the train of life
    Looking out the rear,
    Watching miles of life roll by,
    And marking every year.

    They sit in sad remembrance,
    Of wasted days gone by,
    And curse their life for what it was,
    And hang their head and cry.

    But I don’t concern myself with that,
    I took a different vent,
    I look forward to what life holds,
    And not what has been spent.

    So strap me to the engine,
    As securely as I can be,
    I want to be out on the front,
    To see what I can see.

    I want to feel the winds of change,
    Blowing in my face,
    I want to see what life unfolds,
    As I move from place to place.

    I want to see what’s coming up,
    Not looking at the past,
    Life’s too short for yesterdays,
    It moves along too fast.

    So if the ride gets bumpy,
    While you are looking back,
    Go up front, and you may find,
    Your life has jumped the track.

    It’s all right to remember,
    That’s part of history,
    But up front’s where it’s happening,
    There’s so much mystery.

    The enjoyment of living,
    Is not where we have been,
    It’s looking ever forward,
    To another year and ten.

    It’s searching all the byways,
    Never should you refrain,
    For if you want to live your life,
    You gotta drive the train.

    Roger was on a train, mumbling to himself, smiling, and then raising his hand. After a moment of silence, he would go through the same process ... mumble, smile, raise hand, silence.

    Maggie watched this closely, and after about ¼ an hour, she said, in a concerned voice, 'Excuse me. Is anything the matter?'

    'Oh, no,' Roger answered. 'It's just that these long trips get very tedious so I tell myself jokes.'

    'Why then, inquired Maggie, 'do you keep raising your hand?'

    'Well,' smiled Roger, 'that's to interrupt myself because I've heard that joke before.'


    Pinot WinesPinot More

    There are many 'pinot' wines on the market these days: Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Grigio are but a few.

    There is also marketing research on a product for senior citizens from a new hybrid grape that acts as a diuretic and will reduce the number of trips an older person has to make to the bathroom during the night.

    They will be marketing the new wine as .... Pinot More.

    Happy Valentines Day

    God hath not promised skies always blue,

    Osama's Valentine

    Little David comes home from first grade and tells his father that they learned about the history of Valentine's Day. "Since Valentine's Day is for a Christian saint and we're Jewish," he asks, "will God get mad at me for giving someone a valentine?"

    David's father thinks a bit, then says "No, I don't think God would get mad. Who do you want to give a valentine to?"

    "Osama Bin Laden," David says.

    "Why Osama Bin Laden," his father asks in shock.

    "Well," David says, "I thought that if a little American Jewish boy could have enough love to give Osama a valentine, he might start to think that maybe we're not all bad, and maybe start loving people a little bit. And if other kids saw what I did and sent valentines to Osama, he'd love everyone a lot. And then he'd start going all over the place to tell everyone how much he loved them and how he didn't hate anyone anymore."

    His father's heart swells and he looks at his boy with newfound pride.

    "David, that's the most wonderful thing I've ever heard."

    "I know," David says, "and once that gets him out in the open, the Marines can shoot him."

    ======================================

    Here You Are

    Follow your dream; unless it's the one where you're naked at work during a fire drill.

    "Here you are. Thought you were going to get away did ya?"
    lol
    This is an old post card from Germany and I've kept it and made copies.
    Anji might like to see this card.. I loved it because of the faces. He was so upset to fall into her apron and she was delighted to catch him. lol

    Before we got married, I told my husband, one day, this will be me and this will be you.
    Little did I know
    Hubbies are very nice, till they begin to travel on business trips and you have to stay at home to hold down the fort and catch them when they get back. lol

    I've been catching mine for years now lol
    Who says marriage is not fun?

    And what's this I hear about foreign women being better?
    I don't know. Mine always came back.
    In fact he came home one day and found that his son didn't remember him anymore.

    That was an episode in my house.
    He couldn't believe it and thought I was teaching the boy not to like him lol

    I told him, you got me into so much trouble when you were gone because every bearded man he would see, he would run and grab by the leg and say:
    Daddy, I am so happy to see you!

    The poor bearded fella, would be there with his wife or girl friend and she'd be staring him down and I would have to go through all the explanations, looking guilty as hell.I am sure all the women thought we were both guilty lol and we never even saw each other before that particular day, when this would happen.lol

    By the time hubby did get home, I told the child so many times that the guy, whose leg he was grabbing at that time, was not his Daddy , now that his real Daddy showed up, he was not so sure anymore.lol

    The two of us, got a lot of bearded men into trouble.lol
    It was funny if it wasn't so sad, about a boy missing his Daddy.
    Taught Daddy a thing or three.lol

    I told Daddy to go on more business trips ( with a smile)
    but now Daddy wasn't sure what I meant by that .lol

    In those days there were no emails or video cams. You had to wait weeks for a letter even if he wrote one every day and he'd be gone 6-8 weeks at a time to make it worth the price of sending him over seas.

    You get used to living your own way and then guess what, Hubby shows up and cramps your style lol .

    I guess it's true, history repeats itself.
    My Grand Mother would tell me often, one day you will sit and laugh at how silly you were, getting upset over things that didn't matter.

    Now I am older and I listen to young problems and I remember my Grammas' words cause she was right.

    Young people will always be young people and older people will always be wise and tolerant because they know how it was with them, young, stubborn, hot headed, full of life ,expectations, promise and future and why not? It's all true.

    And hubbies fall from the sky as they always do, back into the loving hands from whom they run to work and play in the outside world, while homestead fires are kept burning, by the people
    who they do it all for....... and love.

    Life, passion, heart ache, love, these are constants in peoples lives they need to deal with every day and it isn't easy .No one expects it to be easy and so you walk through life with eyes open, head on, into what life and reality dishes out.

    You find out that you are not alone and as you fight to survive, you see the importance of charity and forgiveness when it's shown you and when you show it to others, for otherwise, how would we all survive? We all need each other.

    george carlin - american dream



    Saddam Hussein calls President Clinton and tells him, "Bill, I had a wonderful dream last night. I could see America, the whole beautiful country, and on each house I saw a banner." "What did it say on the banners?" Clinton asks. Saddam replies, "Allah is god, god is Allah." Clinton says, "You know, Saddam, I am really happy you called. Last night I had a similar dream. I could see all of Baghdad, and it was more beautiful than ever. It had been rebuilt completely, and on each house flew an enormous banner." "What could you see on the banners?" Saddam asks. Clinton replies, "I don't know. I can't read Hebrew."

    Polar Reversals



    Our Polar World.
    http://tucsoncitizen.com/wryheat/files/2011/01/Lines-of-force-compared.jpg


    What is happening.? Polar Reversal?
    Will wonders never cease?
    When will the world stop living in chaos?
    When will Muslims understand that their Koran is just a guide book and not law?
    Khoumeini and his followers want to live the way they do that's fine but they have no rights over other people. Democracy protects the minorities.

    People make laws to govern themselves and we all agree that killing torturing stoning and sharia laws are wrong.
    Dictatorship is the wrong way to go as well.
    People are polar, like our planet.

    The message our planet is sending us with polar reversal,
    http://istp.gsfc.nasa.gov/earthmag/magnQ&A1.htm#q6,
    is that it is time for change.
    If we continue on our present journey, solar radiation will enter our atmosphere and finish the job we can't seem to. We will all meet our maker sooner than we planned to and those of us who don't, will wish they did.
    This is the prophesy.

    So if the Khomeini wins, this means God is against him.lol
    He can't afford to win and still keep his image as the protector of the Koran and God.
    if the people are all damaged and choose death over life. What use does God have with dead people? Christian Religion is supposed to teach man's humanity to man which means tolerance and freedom. If there is none and people die then what use is religion to anyone? What use is Islam if it kills in the name of God. History already taught us that this is not what the Bible was meant to do throughout time. This is why it is just a book to guide us and keep in the fore front that there is a way to be good to survive.

    The next war cannot afford to leave survivors and unless God can deliver us from our own evils
    mankind, as we know him, will perish like the dinosaurs.
    Muslims and Islam therefore, is working against itself.

    Prince Charles was right when he said we must protect our environment for it gives us
    nourishment to survive and to live, which is what God sent us here to do.
    If he wanted us dead, we would be.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JfXFYD6kJgk&feature=related

    Otherwise why do we need democracy and freedom?
    Why do we need politics or religion at all?

    If the government works for itself instead of the people, as it seems
    to be doing in Islamic countries, and even in ours to some extent, then the people, no matter how many times they wash and bow and kiss the earth,
    will never go beyond poverty and suffering levels.

    Jesus taught man that he did not need to suffer and he warned us of false prophets who tell us that we do. Religion is supposed to be about man's humanity to man because man is a social imperfect being. We have gone a long way from the days of Caesar, where thumbs up meant life and thumbs down meant death.
    We, in the free world, know it can be done.

    Freedom to live, produce and survive is the only way to progress in this world and it can only be done in a true
    world of freedom, where man can express himself and be heard without fear of repercussions.
    If man is kept in the dark, uneducated unprotected he is easier to enslave and then he lives with a lot of anger inside.

    What is good for one nation, is not good for another.
    What is good for one man, may not be good for another.
    Our planet, with it's polar reversals and chaos, has not ended life but has shown us that everything is possible, if we believe and have faith in ourselves and in our individual relationship with the God, that made it all possible.

    Birds of a Feather

    click to enlarge

    These bird houses are quite a few years old now too.
    I never put them outside lol
    They decorate under the tree at Christmas.
    It is things like these that are home made, which make
    holidays special and personal. I think it makes you feel good
    to see things you made, appearing around this time of year.:)
    The big house was made by my first son at Cub Scouts.

    The two little ones were made by my other son and one day
    they shall find the outdoors or be hung on a
    tree or porch or shed where birds can lay eggs undisturbed by
    cats and other critters.

    We have a big commotion going on right now in BC
    whereby song birds are being eaten by stray cats.
    People are complaining but then they also complain when birds
    damage their houses and become noisy, which they do. lol
    We also have eagles and owls swooping down to see if they can get a grip on puppies
    or small dogs and then we hear the other birds nesting in the area shrieking and flying around the predator and attacking it from all sides.

    Well, what is treasure for some is not for others and vs.
    I happen to like to work with nature and would love my kids
    appreciating it as well.
    ==========================================

    The Dead Sea

    Ay the dead sea

    Dead and bereft of life

    I stand watching the waves roll in

    And the beautiful orange sunset

    That has never changed

    Once there were dreams of life at sea

    and now all is dead.

    We search the planets for evidence of life.

    Has there been life somewhere else?

    Or are we creatures designed

    so Gods can play out their whims?

    Will the truth come out when it is too late to do anything about it?

    We say the universe is expanding.

    Is that a good thing or a bad?

    And what happens to the center once the waves

    disappear out of sight?

    Once the waves drift out into vast oceans of space,

    where will our music and our stories go?

    What will our heroes say…..we died for nothing?

    We fought for nothing?

    We cried for nothing and suffered for nothing

    And wept for nothing? Exploded for nothing.

    A macabre comedy

    Or are we projecting sounds and history into space for some one else to discover for some one else to relive

    Eon light years away as our famous people heard and saw them from space to enlighten this world.

    We are all forgerers, all copyrights. People, born of people.

    People learning from people

    People eating off of people.

    Man is a boring entity.

    We smile and laugh at the same mistakes, the same jokes and books and

    Caricatures.

    And babies.

    All babies born so beautiful innocent and free.

    Just to be taught and raised to enslave and be enslaved.

    What is the answer ?

    To whose tune are we dancing to

    and where is the Pied Piper leading us?
