Beautiful Taylor Swift

What a lovely girl.
Her songs are great .

I really like this song too .
Don't know about revenge cause they say what you do comes back to you
but I understand where she is coming from cause there are so many out there
 who pretend sweetness, neediness, and know how to wrap around a  guy by saying and doing what they think the guy likes. Playing on their vanity and ego with puppy dog kisses.

We used to call them geishas in my time. Unreal  people hiding behind their face masks but
On the inside they are cardio surgeons ready to cut the heart out of a guy especially one who thinks he knows everything. Those are the easiest kind of guys to cut up. The teeth show once the honeymoon is over.
They don't even lie about it which makes it even more attractive for the guy cause he is lured in like into a widow spiders web.

A good ol fashioned American girl may be a lot of things but she's clean because her soul is clean.

A lot cleaner than the desperate pretenders out there.
Something to learn and not many songs out there singin them

Good for Taylor Swift. :)


Dig the costume lol
Enjoy the treats and make sure to have a few tricks up your sleeve
cause tonight's the night to do them.

In A Blink Of An Eye

Makes you shudder.

You can close your eyes to things but you can't close your heart to the things you are feeling.

Throughout time, people have said  the same things and their feelings were justified because
it always was followed by unrest.

Seems not too long ago we too were chanting outside on city streets "give peace a chance".
"Love one another right now".

Obama is not living on the rainbow he tried to to create with his YES WE CAN slogan
Easy to talk.  Did he really believe what he was saying?

The punks today have the STAY POSITIVE slogan.
Why? What's wrong with their lives that they need to keep it written in front of their eyes?

Seems all this new technology is opening doors to things we don't like to see cause its happening faster now.
 Parents have no say because society took power away from them.
Then kids commit suicide and we have to listen and while they self destruct with their
STAY POSITIVE slogans parents sit home and party.
Parents are not allowed to have feelings.

The young are not different today for the most part but there seems to be more evil and hate surrounding them and  uttered from their lips than ever before. The universities are complaining about  graduating alcoholics.
The 21 year olds today know nothing compared to what we did at their age and even earlier because we paid attention to people instead of machines.

In the past there were places to run but today there is no where to run.

In a blink of an eye STAY POSITIVE becomes a meaningless slogan when living a self destructive life.

When you have to lie. When you have to struggle for survival fighting to fit in, this means
there is something that you are doing that is wrong.
It means having lost grace, having lost love, having lost your sense of direction, having lost a sense of self and who you are and born to be and having the wrong
people whispering into your ear telling you what you should and should not be doing.

The world is full of advice but the right advice comes from people who love you and raised you and are not afraid to speak the hard cold truth because it's something you don't like to hear.
Things happen today in a blink of an eye.

In a blink of an eye and its all over.

A grieving Mother yesterday said:  Stop texting. Stop twittering and face booking and get a life.
Is any one listening ?



Optina Pustyn

If you go to this link it explains below the  history of |Optina Pustyn from the book
Russka where the author got a lot of info from, as well as professors in the US
in eastern slavic studies.

There are 2 parts 1 and 2 This one is part 2 as the first part is basically birds singing and a new dawn rising
which is  rather nice since this seems to be a revival of what once lost in the USSR.

People who went to church didn't trust communist priests who they believed were part of the KGB.

I find all this very interesting even today.

I remember the movie Brothers Karamazov Where Ekatarina Ivanovna compares Dimitrii to Mother Russia
 herself. Wild . Deep.Uncontrollable.
It is something to have a wild stallion fall in love with you.
Actually Ekaterina doesn't depict in the movie, the explanation given about her as to why she behaved the way she did. Yes, pride had a lot to do with it but there was a lot more.
She wanted what Grushenka had but Dimitrii didn't love her and never pretended that he did.
He was pushed by her and towards her by his Father who wanted to keep his money.

Growing up, russian movies like Anna Karenina, War and Peace, Dr Shivago, and Brothers Karamazov with Yul Brenner were such romantic tragedies . I got caught up in them and carried away like in Gone With the Wind and read so many books by Tolstoy Dostoyevky and
Solszhenytsyn  .
 The First Circle was a real eye opener. I never knew things like that existed. Gulags.
Hitler was bad enough to know about.
 I couldn't understand how people made such an about turn to go against their soul into such cruelties
as was seen in the USSR back then. The old immigrants who ran away, were full of soul.

From the old authors you saw in Mother Russia not the cruel aspects of communism but the soul of the regular peasant people willing to love. I guess hunger and cold break the best of men.

In spite of everything , they were touched by God and morally saved.

Whenever you read about people turning to God, it is to be morally saved because you lose something of yourself, by not believing.

God is what keeps people human.

This is a rather thick book but man is it a good one.

I am sooo enjoying it.

Rutherfurd wrote a book of fiction, a saga, following history
and you can tell from the start, how much research
went into writing it.

Rus came from the Iranian language meaning light or
shining .
The book begins, from before the beginning and speaks of tribes
and how the people lived .
I am on page 50 in a book close to 1000 pages and
 can't get my nose out of it.
 It's absolutely captivating from the get go.
So much to learn here.

I am highly recommending it as a book every one
should try to get their hands on.

The second hand book store sure paid off this time.


Discourse on Inequality.

I pulled this book out cause I found it to be a very good book
and still applies to todays' world.
In it, Rousseau explains how primitive man is equal to todays' man
because he is independent of him.
Our society is not independent .
 We can't survive without society
or without classes still distinguished in wealth power and social privilege.
No government has found a way to eliminate a class system.
Since the powers that be are not perfect, man becomes impoverished
and loses in areas of peace and justice.

A primitive independent man can find peace and justice and will not be impoverished
if left to his instincts to survival. You can see this in gorilla families. If they are left alone,
they are happy just to be.

I guess this is why I always say to keep jobs and family close
so you have some control over your life, living independently in a civilized society.

Take for example Obama care. It is first of all the wrong time to bring it in when the US is broke.
The biggy lies with population growth. The US has so many illegals and poverty and lack of jobs and job security and of course all this drug and alcohol problem. There will be a more than normal demand for healthcare no one can afford.

What I found with these programs and even with Insurances like dental care, is that prices go up.
As soon as they know you are covered they jack up the prices.
Instead of charging 50 dollars to pull a tooth they charge 350.00
You don't win.
People never win.
There is always someone to destroy a good idea.

Sunday, October 27, 2013


I picked up this little Greek tragedy at Sues' Book Shelf.
 This is a small second hand book store
I found with such a wide collection of wonderful books.

I picked up JK Rowlings  The Casual Vacancy there as well
The regular price of it is around 36. 00  and I got it for 10.00.
To be sure I will be going back there.
So now I am reading two books at the same time.

In Antigone, Sophocles asks the question, which law is greater: the gods' or man's. Sophocles votes for the law of the gods. He does this in order to save Athens from the moral destruction which seems imminent. Sophocles wants to warn his countrymen about hubris, or arrogance, because he knows this will be their downfall. In Antigone, the hubris of Creon is revealed.

Antigone is one of three plays written in 441 BC by Sophocles, a General who fought against Samos.

The play argues against anarchy and the dangers of dictatorship and for individual rights.
What always impresses me is that issues never change.
They are always the same.

People keep fighting for freedom and we still can't find balance between freedom and anarchy.
Where can the line be drawn between the two?

It always goes back to religion and God who is above us all.
If it wasn't for him to draw lines for balance, people would not fear to live as animals,
 without a conscience or care about right and wrong.

This is why I find it is important to keep reading these plays and old books, so man does not lose his way.


I Love Bonnie Lassie

I thinks the Scots are a lot of fun to be with.
Something about the heather I think
Imagine fields of it, waving in the cool wind.
I think I could have a back yard full of it.

Ye Olde English Sea Chanty
There was a ship that sailed
All on the Lowland Sea,
And the name of the ship
Was the Golden Vanity
And they feared she would be taken
By the Spanish enemy
As she sailed upon the Lowland,
Lowland, Low
As she sailed upon the Lowland Sea.
Then up stepped the cabin boy
And boldly outspoke he
And he said to the captain,
“What would you give to me
If I would swim along side
Of the Spanish enemy
And sink her in the Lowland,
Lowland, Low
And sink her in the Lowland Sea?”
“Oh, I would give you silver
And I would give you gold,
And my own fairest daughter
To have and to hold,
If you will swim along side
Of our enemy of old
And sink her in the Lowland,
Lowland, Low
And sink her in the Lowland Sea!”
The boy he made him ready,
Then overboard sprang he,
And he swam alongside
Of the Spanish enemy
And with his brace and auger
In her side he bored holes three,
And he sank her in the Lowland,
Lowland, Low,
And he sank her in the Lowland Sea.
Then quickly he swam back
To the cheering of the crew
But the captain would not heed him
For his promise he did rue,
And he scorned his poor entreatings
When loudly he did sue,
And he left him in the Lowland,
Lowland, Low
And he left him in the Lowland Sea.
Then quickly he swam round
To the Vanity’s port side
And up to his messmates
Full bitterly he cried,
“Oh, messmates, draw me up
For I’m drifting with the tide,
And I’m sinking in the Lowland,
Lowland, Low
Aye, I’m sinking in the Lowland Sea!”
Then his messmates drew him up,
But on the deck he died,
And they stitched him in his hammock
Which was so fair and wide,
And they lowered him overboard
And he drifted with the tide,
And he sank beneath the Lowland,
Lowland, Low
And he sank beneath the Lowland Sea.
Have three blogs up and now wish you all a happy week end!!


What's a Mosquito Magnet?

Well it's someone who attracts pests.
People who have nothing to do but check their
iphones and face books and twitters every two seconds.
These are the magnets.

The mosquitoes are those who also have nothing to do but pester other people
24 hours a day and sometimes, if you are not careful, they sure can bite.
I guess one can be both.

Then there is the chick magnet. You know, the kind of guy, who chicks
swoon over, buy him tons of things, feed him,let him drive their car and well..
the rest ..... lets say, nothing is left to the imagination.

It's so easy for guys today cause girls want equality, to be able to be free to be like guys,
but somehow it's not the same thing.

 Times sure have changed.

Librarians are book magnets but books are being replaced by ebooks, so they are harder to find.

Then we have money magnets or people who have money chasing after them.
Not many of those either.

Oh and then there are man magnets. These are the gorgeous gals guys don't think they are good enough for.
Most of them are gay cause not many women go for that style of look any more. lol They are more into sports.

Babe magnets are for the under 25 crowd. This is when  high frequency sounds are made that only the young can hear but don't underestimate the old goat wearing ear aids. lol

Another albeit unpopular magnet is the school magnet. These are seen as geeks who love studying
and like a good wine, can only get gorgeous as they age. What a catch is that?

China has become an air pollution magnet.

It's a big world and there is more than just a north and south pole magnet to be found out there.

So which one R U ?

Today another girl committed suicide from internet bullying.
The Mother said parents have to stop kids from texting.
Well you know there are blocking methods not to gets certain things from certain people
and anyway there should be a method for cyber police to find these people and they do find them.
Kids have to be taught at school there is a way to fight this.

I havent heard this Mosquito song in a while. When I first heard it Joe Dassin sang it.
||The poetry of earth is never dead
when all the birds are faint with the hot sun
and hiding in the cooling trees, a voice will run
from hedge to hedge about the new mown mead -
That is the grasshoppers'.He takes the lead
I summer luxury; he has never done
with his delights, for when tired out with fun
he rests at ease beneath some pleasant weed.
The poetry of earth is ceasing never;
on a lone winter evening, when the frost
has wrought a silence, from the stove there shrills
the crickets song, in warmth increasing ever,
and seems to one in drowsiness half lost
the grass hoppers among some grassy hills.
J Keats

My Hero Cucaracha

If you like spanish music here is one song I always loved.I remember going to Miami once
and I saw this huge insect on a palm tree It was golden and beautiful and about 2 inches
long. I asked the waiter what that insect was and he looked at me and said with raised eyebrows:
That's a cockroach. I had never seen a cockroach before and so this impressed me.

Air supply will be in Vancouver soon.

I don't like huge crowds or I'd go and see them. They sang nice songs compared to today.
These rappers killed good music, especially good black soul music.

 As soon as they open their mouths I get a head ache and feel like stuffing a sock down their throat.
Terrible to have to sit through a red light with the car next door booming this horrible stuff.
Since when are men so loud mouthed anyway?
I think the old guys would not be too impressed with these new guys.  Such a shame.
None of them beats Nat King Cole, Little Ritchie, Diana Ross, Tina Turner, to name a few.

I guess that's what you get when you push speed reading.
 It's bad enough kids don't understand what they are reading
but now we don't either lol

Picture Perfect

A beautiful little family, albeit William looks a little worn. lol
The little Prince must keep him busy.
Little George's Christening dress looks  of vintage design.
He is so cute .
 You can't help but want to count his little fingers and toes.
He has no idea who he is and behaves just like a little munchkin.
William was very smart to hire his own Nanny to watch his boy.
She must be so honored to be so loved and trusted.
These forehead hats are still in fashion  and Catherine
looks smashing in her matching outfit.

A little bundle of joy brightening up the lives of so many.
wanting some coulters candy.

I Loved to Dance.

(click to enlarge)

I learned that to be able to read a blog in large letters all one has to do is
click on "control"
and the "plus" sign and it will make it larger and larger depending on how
 many times you click the plus sign.
 I Loved To Dance

When I was young, I loved to dance, to every tune and melody
And now I say, I will not dance, to each and every rhapsody.
For now I see that love is blind and tunes arouse the passions
So I won't dance another tune, instead, I'll sit and listen.

I'll let the words caress my ears, with gentleness, that I can bear
I'll sing them deep inside my head, and smile, as they float by me.
 And then I'll laugh ,as I'll see them fall, one by one,like silly geese,
All them who dance to these old tunes, arousing passions.

But no not me, I'll hear the words, as I sit here by your side.
Fingers between warm fingers, I have kissed and will kiss tonight
Hands that toiled and worked so hard and yet so warm and caring
Who needs to dance, when I've got you and words to rouse my passion?

A Lady's Life

Tanya feels better I think. I clipped her a bit but when I gave her the tramadol (opium)
she  foamed at the mouth and spit it out.
It scared me cause I felt like I poisoned her lol
So then I washed her face and thought well, I guess you don't need it.

She slept a while and then got her break fast and now we are ready to go again lol
She could do with another good pee.

Anal Gland Problem.

This is a good picture of what my little dog had.
I never heard of anal gland problem but apparently its common in dogs.

 Well this one seemed to swell over night and burst requiring a lot of painful surgery.
 I have been nursing my dog ever since. She was a very bad patient at the vets.
 A real soldier gone to battle. Came home scared and traumatized.
Her cage read "she bites".

She was never away from home, let alone handled by strangers and then to wear that collar.....
I left her alone till the meds kicked in and her temperature dropped. She was so happy to come home.
When my husband came to get her she jumped out of the cage into his arms.
The vet smiled and my husband was so touched our dogs love him. I think this is the first time he has a connection with our dogs because they pester him to play and for food and he likes that.

Tanya seemed to like it by the door where it was cool.
 Now she just looks to be hugged and loved.
I took that darn collar off and
she slept cheek to cheek with me all night.
 What love birds we were. lol

When she tries going for her stitches I say no and she looks at me and sighs.
 That's why I love this dog.
 She is 8 years old maybe 9 now and she behaves like a human.
I would really hate to lose her. When they tried to shave the area, she was not under.
 I don't know if they even put her under. Anyway they tore out a bit of fur which clung to the side of her body.

I cut it off when I saw the raw skin. She really needs a bath now and I am trying to think how to do this without wetting her bum.
She goes to the bathroom easy enough although before she pooped, there was some blood .
I hope one of her stitches didn't break. Last thing she needs is more trauma. Every time she thinks some one is going to do something, she shakes.
She looks to me to hide and protect her more than ever now.
Now I'm the good guy :)

 I don't go to the vet as I don't want to be seen as the bad guy. I'm already the bad guy saying NO.

 My son brought us a Shiranian pup to visit and"BABYSIT" and he was hopping non stop.
So much energy.
 It took us a while to calm him down by feeding and giving water and taking out to pee.

Tanya was watching him to make sure he didn't get close. Beau sneaks in quietly, takes a look and goes outside the bedroom. He knows something is up and is real lonely. Dogs understand everything.

 I still think Sichons are the best little dogs in the world after seeing that Shiranian so wiggly and
Our pup was never like that.These dogs do need a lot of affection and love. It's not for nothing they call them little lion lap dogs. People are throwing away so many old dogs right now. People die and leave their dogs behind. If you go on kijiji
in your area you could probably get one for company or as an alert dog if anyone is around your house.
That's what I keep mine for. No surprises around here. This is why when I watch movies where burglars trip alarm systems, I say to myself, try that with a dog inside, esp one that can push a button for the police.

I hope the picture didn't freak you out. I just never saw anything like it. If I had known, I would have taken her in the night before and maybe saved her and myself all this agony.
How do animals survive in the wild with this sort of thing happening to them?

Signs of Progress.

Centennial Beach has installed electric car chargers.
You can use your credit card for a two hour charge.

Boston Pizza serves beer and alcohol .For a small charge
you can test your breath to see if you can still sit and drive your car.
This is the next best thing to local Pubs offering customers a ride home
with a jug of ale.

This link is about fish. Everything people intake (esp drugs hormones etc...)flushes down the toilet

It goes out into the lakes where the fish live which in turn are affected by everything people do,
eat, drink, and medicate themselves with.
Then other people with no sickness , eat this fish and either get sick or have children with side effects,
like kids born with abnormalities.

I was listening to the marijuana problem in Canada
So many are growing it and they say it's cause there are no jobs and a big demand for it.
They again put in how much taxes government would get if they legalized it.

So we have to now weigh what is more important.

Do we let government collect all this tax money from marijuana, which will become more expensive, than to buy it underground again?

or do we think no.

Safety of peoples' brains is more important than money.

Do we risk having crazy people, behind wheels of cars and esp trucks, in schools, in our place of employ, behind scalpels doing operations, etc.... and then, it doesn't stop at becomes super marijuana,
where by we don't even know what's in it.
The devil is playing tricks again.
Children need to be taught not to be such willing subjects.
Two wrongs don't make a right.
10 Commandments people.

An Apple A Day Is Not Cider.

Emily Yoffe/ Slate Magazine, is right.
"Women should stop getting drunk"
Eat an Apple.
It is not good for women to get drunk because they are the ones
 who suffer in the end.
Now come on, we've seen enough movies where guys supply girls 
with boos with just one end in mind.
This is not just about drinking either. 

Using drugs does the same thing.
You hang loose and then any one can do anything with you
 and how can you then say it's rape, when you were out of 
your head and a willing participant?(loose sense of the word).
The more you do this, the more you won't know what's happening with
 you and then the less of a trustworthy person you will be for someone 
who really wants a good relationship with you.
If you don't know what you have, how does the other person know 
what he's getting from you?
Freedom also means to be mature enough to know when something
is not good for you.Not being in control of your mind,
is not good for you.

Well this is an nice picture, a lady with  horses.

Have a good day.

Cyber Bullying

This cyber bullying and suicide of kids today is sending people a
 message but to me, its not the same message 
other people are getting.
I had a boy at school who would keep punching me in the 
shoulder any time he had a chance until it began hurting
 from all the punches. I went home and told my Mother 
that I didn't know why he was punching me all the time and 
she said well it's probably because he loves you and wants
 to get your attention.
People who bully are hurt people themselves.
This simple explanation changed my whole world.
The next day I went to school and in front of every one 
said:" If you love me just say so.Don't punch me.
I don't like seeing you so hurt and suffering like this."
I was shocked to see my Mother was right. He turned all red,
 the kids laughed and he ran away and never did this to me again.
So this is just a kid problem and not an issue 
for the police and crime unit.
A healthy mind would think and ask itself why?
Why do they bully and then seek a solution.
If someone tells me to kill myself, my natural 
response would be "Why don't you?
Are you telling me that in this big world, 
there is no room for the both of us to exist?
Do you want an old fashion show down as
 they did in the cow boy days?
What's your problem?"

The more you get them to talk the more you and 
very one else will understand who has the real problem.
Every thing goes full circle and whatever a person
 says to you , goes back to him.
So you are not alone and therefore,
 there is no reason to kill yourself esp if the other person 
has no plans to. Obviously the problem does not lie
 with you but the other person.
No one is perfect in this world. Every one has issues.
This is why even finding the right psychiatrist for you is important.
 Not every one is the right one for you, for the person you are.

Kids are taught things they should not be taught, too 
early in life and then they are expected to have
 the "maturity" to deal with adult issues, they are also not ready for.
Then society blames bad behavior kids, instead of putting the blame 
on pressure groups, lobbyists, and self interest groups, who find excuses to
 destroy our children by destroying their young lives and 
dreams and fantasies with their issues.
10 Commandments Ladies and Gentlemen.
10 Commandments.

When it rains, most birds head for shelter.
The eagle is the only bird that, in order to avoid the rain,
starts flying above the clouds.

No wonder God wants us to spread our wings and soar with eagles.

God Bless all who share this.


A Mothers' Love

(click to enlarge)
or this

or this

Using your pictures with your own poems can be quite a satisfying experience.

Your kids say .....Mom! .............with that long drawl.

One day they will look back and say ya, that's Mom all right. lol

You can't teach an old dog new tricks and
sometimes as they say also,
if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Your Mother, good or bad, will always love you.:)

I hate it when they keep changing the internet so you have to keep relearning
how to do things.
Quite annoying actually lol

There comes a time when a woman just has
to trust her husband... For example...

A wife comes home late at night, and quietly
opens the door to her bedroom. From under
the blanket she sees four legs instead of two.

She reaches for a baseball bat and starts hitting
the blanket as hard as she can.

Leaving the covered bodies groaning, she goes
to the kitchen to have a drink. As she enters, she
sees her husband there, reading a magazine.

"Hi Darling", he says, "Your parents have come to
visit us, so I put them in our bedroom. Did you say "hello"?

Color of Fall

What better to feast ones eye on, than color?
Bees must live in a wonderful world being always so close to it.
Fall has always been my favorite time of year
but I still  love season change.

Crinkly golden red yellow and brown
Shuffling through leaves in piles on the ground
Horizon on fire as they say their good byes
It's been a great life but now we must die.

We loved you so much till the very end
Please don't forget us , as we're not far, just bend.
We'll be in your gardens protecting the roots
Providing safety for worms, to nurture the birds.

And in the spring when we're raked up once more
We'll nourish the gardens and flowers and more.
The trees will grow tall and lost hikers will know
How great tastes the water in little pools left from snow
That melts in the cloaks that nature sews
From crinkly golden red yellow brown
Here to enrich this most glorious ground..

I Followed All The Rules.

Isn't this the way of life ?

 People love rebels. Rebels catch the spirit in one, that is alive and free.
Rebels taste life raw and fierce, fall hard and suffer to survive or die legends.
 They touch the heart of all who love them for the suffering they carry deep inside.

Another stays home and digs in and is never  noticed, living the status quo.
 The adventure, for most people, lies not in fighting  bears and creating tribulations in life .
The adventure lies in the growth of crops and the keeping of the hearth alive to nurture
 what is loved most.... family.
To feel un loved, for following all the rules, is a painful burden to bear.

The guilty always try to corrupt the good and the innocent.
It's not easy for the guilty, who see the light and try to step out of the picture either.
Once evil runs loose, it's hard to rein it in and can become quite ugly.

I thought this clip was a very important part of the movie, "Legends of the Fall".
But then there were so many meaningful parts and you spent a lot of time weeping.
All the actors played their parts soooo well.
You couldn't help but suffer with them.
A good cry cleanses the soul as they say, even if it is only a movie.

The title alone is very meaningful as  life quickly becomes a legend. This is what makes the old world
so attractive to people. When you walk there, you can't help but feel the heaviness of history in the air.

Samuel was said to be the best of all of them. He was innocent and idealistic.
 The good die young.
 Tristan, had to hide and lived a long life, never sparing himself or hiding from death.
He finally met his bear again and died a good death
according to the Indian way.

 Alfred reconciled with His Father. He finally understood the lesson his father tried to teach him
about the hypocrisy of the men who ruled nations.
He was left to take care of Tristans' children  and I guess, teach them to still follow the rules,
but not be blind sighted.

Great movie.

For Love Grace and Eternity

Slowly we are losing all the lovely people from the 50's
who had such a direct influence on our lives.
We watched them growing up, wearing beautiful gowns,
going to the yearly ball, being showered with flowers
from admiring beaus, and having their hands kissed.
They showed you how to wear your hair, how to paint your nails,
what perfume to buy, how to buy beautiful shoes and the saying was
buy cheap but be elegant and tasteful.
They designed their own gowns and this is how they will always be remembered.
Beautiful people loved and admired by so many.
This was my aunt.
She was a lady loved and admired for her charm, grace and generosity.

My aunt Eugenia passed away on Thanks giving week end.
She was the last from my Dad's side and was also my dearest God Mother.
I remember how she showered me with her love as a child.
How she let me wear her hats and shoes and how hurt she was when I dumped a whole bottle of expensive perfume she worked a month to buy, on my
I always sat between her and my then to become uncle and told him if he didn't stop touching her I'd push him into the river and he'd get his pants wet. I was three years old.
He always laughed after that and kept asking me if I still wanted to push him into the river to get his pants wet.When I was older I painted a large picture of a place I went to in Vermont of a river and water wheel
alongside an old building. Years later I went to visit her and she still had it and treasured it.
I was so touched.
She  asked me to sit with her as she drove her car one day and we had such a great time, that I forgot
she didn't know how to drive and was on a learners permit and she was so happy saying driving with me was so easy. I gave her a lot of and then horror spread across my face as I realized that I never paid attention to how she drove .
She raised beautiful canaries, gardened, loved animals and was a great athlete keeping up on her jogging throughout her life. There was nothing she couldn't do . She was a person endowed with many talents, both inner and outer beauty and golden hands.
She will be sadly missed by her children, grand children, extended family and friends.

I don't have her picture on hand but if I was to put one on, it would look
like the one above. This is how I will always remember her.

I said a prayer and lit a candle to help her find her way and hope she rests
in peace now, in a better place

Another doodle for Thanks giving week end.
As you can see I love blue flowers.
Baby blue, or powder blue is not a color you see much of and not for long.

Never drew a turkey before either.
The first time I drew a duck was when I was 15.
A neighbor went duck hunting and I guess he got a lot of ducks so he gave a small one to my Dad
who showed it to me. It had beautiful colors on it and I was so sad to see it did not have a long life
and died still  relatively a baby.

So I laid it gently down on my desk and through tears, began to draw it.
You have a chance to observe how the feathers sit and blend into the body,
the texture of the legs, wing span, delicate features of the head.
A little bird, which should have been happily flying south for the winter, was lying on my table,
sorta like Snow White but bereft of life. I was unable to find any bullet holes though.

It was a very sad day for me . I never liked hunters in the fall and I liked them even less that day.
It was all I could do but wish I could give it the breath of life and watch it fly away.
 Looking back,I lost count over how many animals I cried over and today I can't bring myself
to say good bye to any more.

My Dad found a falcon in the apple orchard one day. It was shot as well and one claw
was paralyzed and would not open So the poor thing couldn't hunt and was losing strength.
He brought it home wrapped in cloth.
I was surprised my Mom volunteered her dining room for it. She spread out newspaper all over the floor
and the whole week end we fed it bits of turkey. It ate most of the Thanks giving turkey, got strong and after three days, we let it go and it flew away. As it flew, it circled and looked back down at us, as if to say "Thank you".
We were always taught that birds thought our pupils were seeds and would peck them out, especially
wild birds like eagles and falcons. This was a wild falcon but it let us pet him and love him.
He was quite gracious and even polite. lol
 No one got bit or clawed.He was even gentle taking the food from our hand.

Fall was a beautiful time of year with so much to do. My Dad was a very active man.
He never stopped and made life interesting cause we learned so much by his side.
Then again, we wanted to learn.

Well Ladies get movin and start cookin.

Have a good one!

Little Birdie In the Sky

Well I tried to make do without my fine tipped pen.
It's not exactly what I had in mind but it's still nice to look at.
Kinda cheers you up on a a rainy wet day.
You have to make do with the colors you have at home.

Birds are so sweet when they hop around and chirp around you.
These guys have their eye on a butterfly which isn't doing a great
job at camouflaging. lol

I don't know which one is my favorite but I am kinda leaning towards the
Christmas one at the bottom in red and green.

It's Thursday. One more day before Thanks giving week end.

Be good. Be careful and have a great day.

The Winner of the Rat Race, Is Still a Rat

 You can run but you can't hide.
That's Life in todays' world.
Poor ostrich. I wonder if it ever does hide its' head this way not to be seen?
I know my rooster did and we'd laugh cause he thought we didn't see him when he
 put his head into the garbage can and then he was easy to catch.
The neighbors had fun watching my kids chasing him down the street though . lol

The best proof that there is Intelligent Life in outer space is the fact it hasn’t come here.

You looking at ME?

I’d stalk you, but it’s been a long day.

The Tribbles are coming!

We never really grow up. We only learn how to act in public. (not)

You have delusions of intelligence.

If at first you don’t succeed, the hell with it.

People who think they know it all, really annoy those of us who do.

Well, at least the war on the environment is going well.

Going to church doesn't make you a Christian, any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.

You don't need to shop today, to get charged with a bill .

If you don’t like the way I drive, then stay off the sidewalk.

.Just say NO to negativity. (good one.. NO???)
So then say yes, to negativity?

I thought I was indecisive; now I'm not so sure.

My fish is smarter than your honor student.

Never get into a fight with a vain person, they have everything to lose.

Don't listen. You have nothing to lose.

 Don't look at me. I'm lost too.

A woman (on race religion and sex)said my morality is not the same as your morality
and people should have a right to have their own morality.

Yes, sure, to a point, until your morality and values, hurts other people
which is what is happening today.
There is something to be said in favor of conservative behavior.
It's like smoking. You want to smoke, smoke in your own house.

No one wants to see your bedroom behavior in public.And why would anyone want to do
this in public unless it was to create sensationalism? This is used by lobby groups to push their
ideas while killing other peoples rights to their ideas.

They took away the Santa Claus parade saying the kids should not be told fairy tales and
 replaced it with a gay parade to promote gay rights.If it was up to me I would much rather
watch fantasy in a Santa parade than the other stuff. It's more wholesome.

 You want respect, then respect other people.They put sex on tv and call it art form.
Kids can't get away today from watching people grunt on TV but try
to draw a picture of a dog peeing in a childrens' book and it's inappropriate.

 Women work today and children with no Mothers, get hurt by that.
There is no Mother/ child bond going on cause parents simply have no time.
Life is rush rush rush and then we wonder why kids are hyper and push drugs on them.

 Even animal Mothers spend time with their kids and they have quiet play time.

Now, on this funny program, they also brought up the subject of
anti beastiality laws and one guy said it's my donkey
and I can have sex with it if I want to.

Ya sure ok, but knowing this, who would want to have sex with you?
Would you go around telling people who/what you had sex with?
Would this cause injury to a person you had sex with or to you, after this sort of behavior?
There is no honest relationship to be had here anymore.
What is it the Bible knows, that we don't?
And why would government concern itself with who you have sex with, if it didn't matter?
Obviously it matters .

They also criticized republicans for telling you not to divorce .
What they don't discuss is, the reason for you wanting a divorce?

See, good behavior is seen to be frowned upon and it's frowned upon cause parents neglect their kids,
let them do what they want and then kids grow up and feel entitled to trash every one elses' rights
to good behavior.
It becomes a run away train and they just don't see it coming until it hits them personally and then they run to government, asking them for help.
Too little, too late and justice is slow.

NO is not a negative word today. In fact, it is a much needed word.

I guess life keeps rolling along. (or running lol)

Doodle With An Eagles' Eye

I sure am having fun playing with these doodles.

Picassa lets you have a different color back ground which is very nice.
I like to be able to put the picture in a frame as well to see what it would look
like on a wall this way.

The Eagle has such an expressive eye.

I would love to do a Zentangle but am not in a frame of mind to do one.
One has to go with the flow. lol

I guess I need a better pen to do a finer job but this is good enough as an exercise.
I get the feel of it this way and then maybe will try it in oils.
I decided to get a extra fine point pen and paid 5 dollars for it just to come home and find it didn't
work so now I have to return it.

I also went to my Project Clay blog where I left a link to another blog to try to help the woman
get more traffic cause I liked her stuff.
She had a great porcelain clay recipe to make projects with.
Well some one else wrote that she had no right to put it on because they are professionals  and
not hobbiests so if we want the recipe we have to pay 4.99.
So I found another link with the recipe and put it on and wrote that even Coca Cola
 has to go public with its' recipe.
It's not the recipe but the final project which speaks for itself and this lady made some nice projects
people wouldn't mind ordering or buying from her.

Anyway, if you like these doodles, you are welcome to copy and send them to your friends and family.
This is a friendly blog and no money is being made here.
My work is still mine. If one day I want to do something with it all, I still can.
I sure wish I had an  jet ink  printer though lol.

Have a Zipidee Day!!


Doodle Doodle With A Noodle.

Another doodle I did yesterday. Nice for fall .
 Never drew a squirrel before.
Cute little critters.


It's interesting how different it looks in one color as opposed to many.
 My husband likes it colorful cause he says it reflects the person I am.
 I never saw my self in terms of my paintings but I guess they do reflect,
 how people feel when they paint them, which is why painters like
 Picasso and Rembrandt are so loved.
 Even After they finish school and get married................
 Dear Dad, $chool i$ really great.
 I am making lot$ of friend$ and $tudying very hard.
 I $imply can`t think of anything I need. $o if you would like, you can ju$t
 $end me a card, a$ I would love to hear from you.
 Love, Your $on
Be careful what you wish for........

 A couple, desperate to conceive a child, went to their priest and asked
 him to pray for them. "I'm going on a sabbatical to Rome," he replied,
 "and while I'm there, I'll light a candle for you." The priest returned
 three years later and dropped by the couple's house, finding the wife pregnant,
 with two sets of twins. Elated, he asked her where her
 husband was so that he could congratulate him.
 "He's gone to Rome, to blow
 that candle out!"

 Have a Zipidee Wednesday .

Doo Doo Doodle Doodling

Had a bit of fun here getting slowly back into painting.
This was a doodle and with a bit of Picassa magic
It came out rather nice I think.

Even in fall colors


Then a third one without the grainy effect.



#320-2670 152ND SURREY,BC
604 560 1324

All I could say was WOW!
The food was exceptional and delicious!!
Portions were generous. They had very fresh seafood in it.
Not over cooked or undercooked, or greasy.
The sauce was creamy and the spicy plate
had just the right amount of spices.
The sushi came looking mouth watering and very professionally done.
The service was excellent!!

What can I say except. MMMMMMMMMMMMM

My husbands plate came in sizzling  hot, looking so appetizing.
The green tea was so tasty.

The chefs here sure know how to cook
Anthony Bourdain should make a stop here.

I had a  medium carafe of hot Sake which was also quite delicious
and in the end we found the itemised prices to be very reasonable .

It is clear why the place was packed with customers.
 I would come back any time.
It was a great ending to a fantastic Sunday

If you are ever in Surrey, BC
Maguroguy is the place to go!

Sacred Is As Sacred Does

Since an intelligence common to us all makes things known to us and formulates them in our minds, honourable actions are ascribed by us to virtue, and dishonourable actions to vice; and only a madman would conclude that these judgements are matters of opinion, and not fixed by nature.
Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 B.C.), Roman orator, philosopher. De Legibus, bk. 1, ch. 16, sect. 45 (85 A.D.). 
We speak words such as something being sacred without understanding exactly what this means.
It comes to the point where nothng becomes sacred because we trample over everything that in the past and even today, was valued.
Can something sacred become Unsacred? Yes. 

Once people begin to trash and trample till nothing is left, what will they do then?

If you believe in nothing, care for nothing, then what kind of  people do we become?

Most of what we trash has commercial value.
We trash land held sacred in Canada, by the Aboriginal people.
We trash religion, calling it poppycock.
We trash our bodies, saying we have rights to desecrate what belongs to us.
We trash unborn children, saying our rights over our bodies comes first.
We trash children born to us as wonderful miracles.
We trash marriages.
We trash traditional families.
We trash seniors .
We trash schools.
We trash good business.
We trash the oceans and forests and air and water.
We trash good language We trash good education
We trash good laws.
We began to trash the heavens and other stars and planets.

We call all this trashing, progress. Moving forward and we make it legal to do, through
our governments which are full of lawyers who make excuses for everything we do.

Through out all MANS' PROGRESS, do we find peace, happiness, contentment, beauty,

No. We have problems which are becoming too over whelming to handle.
We have a need to build more jails or allow crime to live and continue to hurt people.
We have laws which can't be obeyed because if you try to obey them and complain when they don't,
the powers that be, destroy you, because they own everything affecting your life.

Now under the 10 Commandments, most of these problems would not exist because
people would consider morals and values which are part of the word SACRED.

There would be some lines which could not be crossed.
Women would behave in such a way as not require abortions, as would men not to cause women to have them..
Families would not divorce because there would be no differences which could not be fixed.
Alcoholism, abuse,drug problems, violent acts would not exist.
Gay issues would never be an issue because sex would not be something pushed and because
people would accept who they were by the genitals they were born with.
Land would be kept clean, as would water, air , food.
Seniors would have loving families to live in instead of  senior homes
Children would have more family and love around them.
Schools would not have to deal with troubled youth and all the psychological illnesses they come in with.

If we stop corrupting everything about life, that is pure and good, we would not have to pay so many taxes and have more time to live and enjoy our homes and families.

The thing is, when we speak of social services we speak of helping people in their hour of need
but it does not give people rights to artificially create those needs by desecrating everything
around them that is good, to get them because society just can't handle the cost, nor should the tax payer be asked to. Human rights applies to every individual, to do good, unto him/herself and thus
apply to the word SACRED.

So the same people who trash the Bible  and the 10 Commandments, are responsible for trashing the word Sacred and everything else,pure and good, for commercial and financial ends.
Although they may have money, it will not buy them things money can't buy like
friendship, trust, love, peace,health, eternity.... to name a few.

The reason we want better things in life, is to be able to have things money can't buy.
You cannot trash sacred things and believe there will not be a price to pay for it in the future.

The reason they are called the 10 Commandments is because man is commanded by God
to obey but he will not be forced. Parents command children to do right  but they will not kill them if they don't obey.
The decision is always left to us, for the foot prints we leave behind, will be followed by the young
who know less about good things, with each generation.
The future will be about world scarcity as opposed to the horn of plenty we enjoyed under the word of God.
The 10 Commandments are part of what is sacred and if you trash them.....
then this is equivalent to cursing not only the present but the past and the future generations to come
Although one can maybe speak for oneself, one cannot speak for every one .

There is no reason to have laws and governments if 10 simple laws cannot be obeyed by mankind.
We hear people saying this more and more today.
We also have to ask ourselves why we fear them so?

“‎What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and work flow.”
martin luther

Harry was sick and tired of being constantly badgered by his wife Barbara for spending so much time in the bar so he invited her to along with him.
“So what would you like?” he asked as she took her seat next to him. “Oh I don’t know” Barbara replied, “I guess I’ll take the same thing as you.”
“OK . Bartender, we’ll take two Johnny Walker’s on the rocks!”
Barbara barely took a sip of the drink before she started gagging “Oh my gosh! Get me a cup of water! This stuff is horrible! How do you drink this garbage?”
“See?” said Harry “and you think I come here just to have a good time."

David Schwartz is dying and is  on his deathbed.  He is with his nurse, his wife, his daughter and 2 sons,  and knows the end is near. So he says to them:

"Bernie, I want you to  take the Beverly Hills houses."
"Sybil, take the apartments  over in Los Angeles Plaza."
"Hymie, I want you to take the  offices over in City Center."
"Sarah, my dear wife, please take  all the residential buildings downtown"
The nurse is just blown  away by all this, and as david slips away, she says to the wife,  "Mrs.   Schwartz, your husband must have been such a hardworking man  to have accumulated so much property."

Sarah replies, "Property  shmoperty...the schmuck had a  newspaper route."
Have a wonderful day!!

Beaudelaire Says Just Be Drunk


 So Easy to get away with this music and

Be Drunk

You have to be always drunk. That's all there is to it--it's the
only way. So as not to feel the horrible burden of time that breaks
your back and bends you to the earth, you have to be continually
But on what?Wine, poetry or virtue, as you wish. But be
And if sometimes, on the steps of a palace or the green grass of
a ditch, in the mournful solitude of your room, you wake again,
drunkenness already diminishing or gone, ask the wind, the wave,
the star, the bird, the clock, everything that is flying, everything
that is groaning, everything that is rolling, everything that is
singing, everything that is speaking. . .ask what time it is and
wind, wave, star, bird, clock will answer you:"It is time to be
drunk! So as not to be the martyred slaves of time, be drunk, be
continually drunk! On wine, on poetry or on virtue as you wish."

Free Thinkers

(google images)

Freedom is a base desire. I think if there was one thing more important
than anything else in life , it would be freedom.

Freedom is basically what the Christian religion is all about.
There are no sticks or stones here because Christians
feel it is not God that has to chase you, it is you that has to chase God.

Churches do not run after patrons because nothing is worse than to be infiltrated
by evil who hates you and doesn't understand God and wants him destroyed.

God is not a piece of flesh but he is in every piece of flesh as he is in everything we see touch
feel taste and hear.
God has no face, he takes no sides but he sent us a message in the 10 Commandments.
He sent us his son who man crucified and who we now feel guilty about and try to disprove
that he actually was dead and /or that his body was stolen, or that this whole thing is a lie.

The thing is, it is all irrelevant. God can take any shape or form. He could have been in Jesus
and thus Jesus could have been God. God can be in you or if you throw him out, another angel could enter
and fill your head and spirit with lies and numbers.
Why lies? Because there is only one truth and man kind hates it.

Man kind hates truth because man in not perfect.He is a selfish entity wanting what he wants without caring of anothers' pain and suffering. So he changes laws to suit himself through making excuses for his behavior.
Man says everything is ok.
He laughs saying god will judge me. Well as God would have it, we will all be our own judges.
We will have to one day face the cold truth about ourselves.

 As time passes there is more to learn and babies have more to catch up on as they are always born empty headed.
We don't think the same, act the same, eat the same,play the same, feel the same, see the same etc.....
because of our experiences and how we  were brought up but truth, like God, never changes.
It IS even if you do not know it.

The Bible is a book written by man. It is a set of stories people read to learn, remember a moment in time,
when times were good and when times were not so good. See mistakes being made and mistakes
corrected. It's a good book every one should read with no threats of punishment.

This is why Jesus was a shepherd and not a warrior. The purpose of this book is to guide.
The essence of the book is the 10 Commandments because through them one sees the light and the direction
or path one must stay on. Where our laws fail us, the 10 Commandments never do.
 They never change.
If the 10 Commandments were a science, they would be true laws.

These laws force no one to stay on the path because one has to understand them to be the truth.
Nothing is worse than following a path you have no faith in, fear,or be brain washed into.
The Christian God understands this is the only way to fix mans' flaw. For man to understand, he has to be let go, freed.... so he can learn, come to his own conclusions and then finally understand what this God thing is all about.

It's a dangerous time for man because of all the pressure groups trying to dissuade him from believing.
So we see anger, hate, tattoos, piercings, self mutilation so as to feel, bad language, new beliefs emerging
like goths, vampires, etc.....People searching for the self to be happy, not seeing they are running away from the self into something other, and there is no happiness to be found there either.

False Gods, false angels, false prophets all wanting for something, but we are promised that in the end, regardless of what happens,
God will win(not man necessarily) because there is only one truth. God has no other interests except truth and truth is what IS.
So you can rely on God not being one to be corrupted.

Kids being raised with no religion, are lost. They have to study philosophy or find some other way, through some other study like astronomy or physics or biology... to find their way back into believing.
Others are brain washed into believing so they can be controlled by a dictator through fear.
They say you have to kill every one who disbelieves, the way they are told to believe.

But in reality God makes no such demands. If he wanted to, he could enlighten us all tomorrow to become devout believers but this is not what he wants.

He wants us to understand though our own obeservations and learning because he saw what Adam and Eve
It's like studying. You could memorise 1 plus 1 equals 2 or you can understand it.
If you memorise it, it has no meaning and tomorrow someone will come and lie to you and say no
it's not 2 its 5 and you will believe it.But if you understand 1 plus one is 2 then this is for ever.
You may forget but it will always come back to you cause you will be able to think things through.

God is an entity of intelligence beyond mans' reach unless he wants to touch you. He tries not to interfere
because he wants man to touch upon him. To understand.
He made it simple with the 10 Commandments.

These laws are the only positive laws you will find in life and to seek answers elsewhere is just
to get lost in the jungle.
Not many have brains powerful enough today to see through things because this requires tons of reading and educating and not many do this today. High schools and colleges are more into technologies than education today.
Today man is busy hootin and hollerin , smoking pot and obsessed with sex. It's fun that hurts in the end,
because much valued time is lost and its hard to recover from it, so many never do.
Growing up into an adult is more than just how old you are. It's a time to learn problem solving and if you don't learn how to do this then problems never go away, you never mature and you never grow intellectually strong.
We see this in the Dorian Grey story.

Some learn  through the sciences, they find the way and some through sciences, are also lost because they work for the wrong angels and numbers.

But if we have faith, in the end it will be Gods' will because he is the only truth.

God is a free thinker. He would have to be to to create other creatures and beings and man today is headed towards this end as well. As he proceeds forward, man will understand better the situation God finds himself in because the creatures/ and robots, he creates will rebel to obtain free will.
They will either have to be destroyed or allowed to live and grow and see what happens.

The only way to reach them then,is to supply them with truth and leave it up to them to decide to either accept it or self destruct.

We need to have faith, that in the end, we become the intelligent beings we were created to be, by trusting in the 10 Commandments and what they stand for.
Sorry about repeating all this all the time but some people don't seem to understand and think its all about books and what is written in them. Books are stories written by man.
The 10 Commandments were written in stone to stop mans inhumanity to man.
The family comes first because from that, everything else that's good happens.
Take care of your own home, before taking care of some one elses.

In the meantime enjoy Yugoslav N. Volkoff from WWE  = Cara Mia. These guys are always so funny to watch.
No intellect here Just plain muscle and big talk.

The World of Dr Doo Little

(click to Enlarge)

Dr Doo Little would have a fascinating time listening to the stories these
 horses would tell him.
These boys and girls work for a  living and summer might be
full of riders but winters are a bit thin since people get busy.

But Teresa is a wonderful person who loves them all and teaches
youngsters all about taking care of horses and makes sure you try riding them all
so you see that horses are all different with their own characters and feelings,
 just like people.

In the end you love them all, as you become a part of their lives.
They see you coming and all the ears prick up with interest to see what
it is you are carrying in your hands. Carrots? Apples?

What! What! Show us! Tell us! and they herd toward you, patiently,
obediently waiting in anticipation. From the other corrals you hear the
neighs. Hey! What about us? Are you forgetting us? Aren't you coming here?

An overwhelming feeling of love overcomes you as these gentle beasts
munch on their gifts while you put your arms around their necks to give them a big hug.

Come on . We'll even roll over for you.

Talking to the regular riders, who can't help but come back, you hear about the competitions and
 barrel races the kids do and dress up games and parades.
These horses sure love all the fuss and games around them.
Better than standing around being bored.

Action is what they like. They are just as curious about people as people are about them.
And even the poop is not offensive.

Here is a clip I think every one will enjoy because it applies to both animals and people who
learn about what it means to be a team.   Inches
