Hells Gate is a very scary place. They have river rafting.
We often stop here.
Well a crow got into my pots this morning and destroyed everything.
All that work out the window.
I covered the pots with plastic covers and he made sure to take them off.
Not meant to be I guess. Everything wants to live.
People said shoot the b.... and I laughed. Here in BC crows are spirit birds.
It's almost as bad to hurt these birds as insulting a sacred mountain in Malaysia.
so as to cause an earthquake.
It is another hot day.
I made sure to put things that would make noise if something came to touch the plants.
At 3 a m ... Bingo.
I turned the outside lights on and a rabbit hightailed it out of the garden. Sure enough he did some damage again.
Today I transplanted some tomatoes into the now empty pots of other things. Tonight I will put them into containers and cover them for the night This will help prevent intruders helping themselves
till dawn when I am awake.
Who knew life would be so hard lol
Neither bird nor beast dug my potato plant which sports some nice potatoes already.
The cucumber plant is growing nicely. and the 3 bought tomato plants have tomatoes on them already and lots of flowers.
Have to keep an eye out on them.
So another nice day. Back muscles hurt. but hey.... life goes on.
Made a delicious soup yesterday. Used chicken livers and cut up a thin steak in small cubes.
Added fresh chopped ginger , chopped Italian broccoli, chopped celery, chopped beat leaves,
1 can of green jack fruit which tasted like potato and added some pyrogies for dumplings.
Ended up very tasty and had a wonderful smell to it.
I like it when my guys eat.
This is the wild flower that came up.
Must be a perennial
. It opens with the sun and when there is shade it closes.
It was in a packet of wild seeds and flowers open
at diffrent times. So far I have these leaves growing
but no flowers on them. Then this yellow one springs up lol
The stem is short and the flower lies just on top of the leaves
close to the ground..
Tanya again tried getting into pots so again she must be tied.
This is going to be a fun summer. She almost destroyed my two lemon tree plants
and it took me forever to grow them from seeds.
She seems to be hunting again. Something must be
coming here to the plants.
The drug war is still on as people keep getting shot by our house.
They closed one street last night after 10 pm.till further notice.
It was a targeted shooting.
Medicinal marijuana was passed to smoke bake cookies and other stuff with.
by judges. People are mad cause they say judges have no right to pass drug laws
pertaining to medicine that was not proven to be so.
I say if they are drugs they should be prescribed by the pharmacy with a doctors prescription.
Otherwise no one knows what anyone is smoking. Besides it's such a smelly thing.
Not pleasant to be around. Here it comes in through the bedroom window as you sleep
when people smoke outside. Not good. We should move next door to these judges and
puff smoke in their faces all day and see how they like it.
New laws are also being passed to drive on the right side of the road unless passing or
167.00 fines and three points off the driver license will be taken away.
Other laws pertaining to terrorism created second class citizens of all people not born in Canada.
They now have a right to deport every one not obeying Canada laws.
This is for Islamic problems. The other laws allow the RCMP to look into everyones business
who they feel are a threat to Canada. People don't like this but you know,
it's not against good people but against people who come to hurt Canadians.
Laws are too lax and for the criminal. They take ages to arrest them and then lawyers come in and free them within days. Law is a joke.
Now they will exist for the public that just wants peace.
People come here thinking "freedom" to do all kind of wild things.
Then every one suffers.
It is blustery cold this morning. But sun is coming out.
After the crows tried to eat my bean plants, my dog
decided she likes to lie down in the pots.
So now she has to be kept tied for a while till the danger is over.
She is really obsessed with the pots.
On a better note I already have 3 tomatoes.
The coleus I saved in the winter is beet red now.
and the carnations are coming out, with 5 buds apart from the 5 flowers
I already have.
No hibiscus flowers yet even after putting the plant in very fertile soil.
We did some BBQ's and crock pot soup with leeks and potatoes
and beet leaves.mmmm
Lytton is on fire this morning and many places have no electricity
due to the wind.We lucked out. Not that much wind but almost enough
to turn pots over and cold enough for sweaters. BC has weird weather.
You just never know from one day to the next.
I love the sun this year. It's not irritating to my skin like in past years.
I took a pic of a flower I have that opens up during the day but it didn't load.
Will wait till it opens to try again. It's so cute.
Obama cartoons show him to be friendly to terrorism.
They say everything is about black people who are in control
and yet when things go wrong they blame it on racism. lol
Just like in Quebec separatists blamed what the Church did on English people.
Called themselves the white niggers of America. Unbelievable.
And the news with Rand Paul speaks of financial disasters and our NDP
wants unions back which destroyed our jobs to begin with cause so many left.
Things are lookin good (not).
Love the Mike and Molly show.
Molly is such a good actress. It takes a lot to make me laugh and she does
it every time.
Have a good one.
Salty's is a fun place to eat. on Hwy 10
Nothing but fish and
days with all you can eat fish.
They have this picture up I guess in reference to
Englands' Fish and Chips.
Prices are good too.
Was watching dogs who bark on TV.
They showed you all the ways to stop a dog from barking.
My dogs bark when someone is at the front door.
No one usually comes except for Jehovahs.
They bark when people hang around the house who shouldn't.
I keep them for companionship and to help me be aware when intruders
are around the house who don't belong.
We live by a lane and a green space behind the lane.
Every night, especially in summer ,cars and people show up who
don't belong, and head on in to buy drugs from some house in there.
I would go check but I don't think it would be a wise thing to do.
They know where I live too. lol
We used to take pictures of licences and when they ask why,
we tell them for security purposes. It goes to the police.
So they stopped for a while.
Of course they don't like it when dogs disclose they are there and we get
immediate complaints to the SPCA for dog barking.
The amount my dogs bark, doesn't warrant complaints.
Just the fact they are there , annoys drug people.
The dogs are there to do a job and they do it well.
Why they dont catch the house selling drugs and stop people
from walking at night in dark lanes, is beyond explanation.
The SPCA can't say anything cause my dogs are old. Beau is 16
and on his last legs. We tell the SPCA, you don't like it? Take the dog.
They don't want the dog cause Beau is a nice dog.
Being old, they can't make money on him and this is what the SPCA wants today.
They would have to spend money to put him down.
The SPCA continues to help destroy the gene pool and pretty soon all dogs will
not be worth the paper people pay for them. No one can enjoy
a demented, in bred dog.
A dog has to be a dog. It has to play and be social.
It has feelings like people do. It gets scared like people do.
It gets protective of family as people get protective of family.
It's loving and caring like people are.
Dogs don't like marijuana coming into the bedroom through the window
when they sleep . The stink wakes them up and people talking outside are
a sign they don't belong in a lane after 9.pm when it's dark.
It is also not enjoyable to us to smell people having fun loitering
in residential areas.
Car doors slamming are not appreciated as they wake up the household.
They continue to slam till after midnight.
Sometimes I just have to shake my head and think people are the problem
but of course they blame man's best friend who has more intelligence,
respect, politeness and sense than people do.
Life is not headed in a good direction and you have to be old to see this.
Young people don't see it. They just don't know any better.
That's why they are easy to sway into criminal direction.
Some reporter women complained about Snoop Dog making passes at them.
Well, what do they expect ? They advertise the guy, make him millions and a role
model for young people to follow as a successful thug.
Thugs don't respect women. Women are bitches.
Women are there to serve their needs.
It's nice they complained but more needs be done like... don't buy what they sell.
What a beautiful day it was today.
We went to the beach and sat looking out into the horizon.
Came home to beautiful peonie which opened up to expose
it's inner splendor.
Watered my little garden. Things are popping up.
Got some MacCintosh apples.
To me these are the best apples in the whole world.
So I took out a few seeds to see if I could sprout them.
Made lamb shanks which disappeared pronto.
The dogs were competing for the bones. lol
Put beans to soak in water to cook tomorrow.
Otherwise they will take all day to boil.
Then made a pot of steamed asparagus with sausages
beet leaves celery potato macaroni and oats.
Went shopping and forgot the potatoes tomatoes and
oregano. There always seems to be a shortage of oregano for
some reason. The steak was cheap so I stocked up.
I got the Fix it to clean the computers and a new printer.
since it is getting hard to find ink for my old one.
This Canon was cheap and wireless.
Like Wow! No wires is so much better.
The ink is cheaper as well.
I wonder if this one has reinking cartridges.?
My Lexmark did not.
We always had to buy new ones.
The day went by very quickly and now tomorrow is another day.
This is a pretty little flower that popped up in one of my pots.
I am sure other colors will follow. They close at night.
My front yard is covered in wild, white morning glories.
How easy it is to grow these flowers. Nothing needs to be done.
The peonies are almost open too. I so love peonies.
The amazing ones are the hydrangeas. These flowers almost keep forever and
can be enjoyed indoors. I hate to cut flowers. I am so bad at that. Like them in pots
indoors so they can grow again.
Bunny was sitting watching my Beau with not a care in the world.
I throw out a handful of my porridge oats every day and it all disappears.
I had oak seeds from a tree I planted and some one ate two of them. Just bit right through them?
Birds? Rabbits? Dogs?
Either the birds or bunnies come to eat the oats.
I buy oats always wanting to make porridge but then forget.
So I make sure to put it into soups . It gives it the extra something.
Today I took out a pork loin and shrimp to bake.
Guess I'll bake it in the early afternoon.
The sun is so nice today.
Joe Bidens son is still in transit. He is visiting so many places
before he is finally put to rest.
So hard on the family to lose someone still so young.
I am always upset for the children.
So far I tasted the forest ham I bought from the butcher and have to say
I haven't tasted ham like this since I was a little girl. The same with the bacon.
We just don't buy ham and bacon with the same flavors anymore.
We buy, what we can really call,dead meat.
The chicken especially has absolutely no taste to it.
Usually I take a bite and then pass it on to the dogs.
I can't wait to see what the pork loin will taste like.
Pork in their store, is all home grown they said.
Home grown beef would be a problem
cause they said it would be too expensive.
Funny hunh when there is no long haul shipping involved.
They send the young cattle to Alberta
to graze, and then they have to bring them back.
All this costs money.
So this is life as we know it. Never a dull moment.
This is one of my beautiful carnations that flowered and
two more buds
sit beside it.Every day there is something to cheer me up.
My Duke finally passed away.
The medicine I bought for his nose fungus did not help him.
It made me very sad to see him at the bottom of the aquarium.
We went to a local butcher beside the fabric store I visit.
I see many people coming out with boxes and thought hmm
must be something up.
Sure enough I found it to be a very nice store and the meat is excellent.
Pork is local. Stuffed crab mushrooms were very good. They had meat pies.
We got one and it was also very good. I got some nice lamb shanks cheaper
than at the Superstore. We tried the bacon which had a very nice aroma and look
to it. We did not buy bacon like that in a long time. Black forest ham was on special.
Nice slices of steak. We avoided the chicken since today they put too many hormones into it.
but it looked nice but they did have very nice shrimp we indulged in.
We got bison burgers to try for the BBQ and they cut us some marrow bones. We don't see bones like that in stores anymore.
Over all, we came home happy and like to support small local stores. The service is so much better.
Next time we will order the box with precut meat which they do the night before so as to be ready
for you the next morning.
In winter they say hunters bring in venison to fix, to them. I told the butcher I would like to taste it
if he could manage to get a few pieces from them. lol Otherwise we have to go way up north
and they dont always have it, if its not in season.
One of my blogger friends has a husband that hunts moose. They don't shoot the ones that come to their front door in the city . lol Most of the meat she says has to be minced. Otherwise it is too hard.
I was in a good mood so at home I made some buns.
The aroma was so nice in the house I had to go try one.
The days go by very quickly.
My little garden is growing. We had no sunshine for a few days so I did not water anything but today the sun did come out so I will see if anything needs watering.
Too much water will rot all the roots.Not all my pots have holes at the bottom. Yesterday I took a drill to them just to give excess water somewhere to go.
My Tanya got her nose into some dirt. She was looking for something and when I showed her nothing was there, she was disappointed. I am sure one of these days the dogs will help themselves to my pot garden. They sniff everything and right now the tomatoes are flowering and little bean heads are popping up. I think I have a few sunflower seeds too but now I forget which pot they are in.
It's like watching your babies grow every day.
This year my grape vines already have about 200 leaves. Maybe I will pick some for my stuffed vine leaves. We always used to eat fresh leaves and parboil and freeze packages of 200 for later.
Outside the yard is in bloom with black berry flowers. I should try and collect leaves to dry to make tea for winter. I never collect the berries but should. The jam from the berries is excellent.
They keep talking about Bruce Jenner and I think this country has gone crazy.
What about all the other people? The fat people, the tall people, the little people. People born with short arms. People born with other things like blindness cancer, big heads full of water.Are they all happy?
People with cystic fibrosis say they are happy. Retarded people say they are happy.
When there is talk about aborting them, they say no, we want to be born.
Ask Stephen Hawking if he is happy and he will say yes. He has respect, a career, money and women who love him.
And here we have healthy people, un happy with being healthy and this is all we talk about.
Why are they not happy?
If we go into comedy, they makes jokes about every body and here laws are being passed that
you wont be able to say if you were born a man or a woman or which toilet you go to.
Heck at my age I don't care which toilet I go into. Peeing in my pants is more important than the sign on the toilet door. Arrest me.
Everything you laugh at, offends someone. That's why it's funny.
Pretty soon Charlie Hebdo will be scrutinized as anti gay or anti trans gender by jokes they crack as being pro gay and pro trans gender.
Oh ya. It can get complicated.
Boy, the Arabs would get a good laugh from it all. lol
Many comedians just poke fun at their own man hoods .
I can't wait for them to pass laws against that too. lol
I can just picture a policeman asking someone... Well, what did this person look like?
And you would not be able to say since everything you say would be against the law.
All you can say is: "Oh this person was sad, so this is why he/she does what he/she does.
We need more anti sadness laws."
Suppose you say: Oh he was 6.5, black, cross eyed, bull legged, buck toothed,spoke slang, wore a bull horn around his pee pee, feather in the hole in his head, and wore a mini skirt....... you could be put in jail for this description.
Can you imagine how many pressure groups would be after you? lol What's wrong with being 6.5 black buck toothed bull legged speaking slang and wearing a mini skirt with a bull horn around around your pee pee? That's like having 8 lawsuits going against you for this description.
Then based on this, how can a police man arrest the suspect?
The lawyers would say oh this was entrapment and discrimination. The police was looking for suspects matching that description and we know there is nothing wrong with people matching that description.
Good bye freedom and good eyesight. Hello crime. People will see no evil, hear no evil and God forbid, speak no evil, against evil. It would hurt a criminals' feelings and that's against the law.
Lots of trouble seeing and talking about so many things against the law, like what a person looked like and how he behaved.
How dare you call me a criminal for entering your home, beating you and stealing your money and
furniture? You invited me in and gave it to me. Is it my fault you like kinky sex too?
Try to please someone.....
Then they will say you looked at someone and now have an opinion you should not have.
Today, trying to prove your innocence, practically does not exist.
You buy ply wood for your roof, the neighbor comes at night and steals it and puts it on his roof, and the law is with your neighbor.
There is no way in hell you can prove you did not give it to him or sell it to him.
The neighbors are not even scared to tell you that they don't need to ask you if they can take the tires off your car. They were just trying to be respectful and polite.lol
This is the new definition of politeness and respect today. This is thee new laws we have to live under.
With so many hard cruel issues in this world to tackle, leave it to North America to continue to sit absorbed in sex. It's just sad.
In Africa, they just breed tons of kids to starve and kill so they can breed more.They don't have to talk about their man hoods all day cause actions speak louder than words.
No one can talk about clothing and makeup or even magazines and reality shows. They dont exist. All we see there, are tears and hands asking for rice. You send them money for food and it never gets there.
But in America, we just seem to be absorbed with one topic. Sex.
We push it everywhere. It's become an obsession.
What do psychiatrists says about obsessions????? Oh ya. They are the reason for all these changes in thinking. Every one has to feel good about themselves.
They say soldiers coming home from wars kill themselves. They are unhappy but no one makes
shows about them. Maybe if they could make the money Bruce Jenner is making, they would not have to commit suicide? What has being happy to do with it?
Was Elvis Presley happy? Was Michael Jackson Happy?
Is Justin Bieber happy? We know Robin Williams, Freddie Prinze,Charles Rocket, Heath Ledger?....
What about all these WW2 survivors? Were they happy? No but they understood struggle and looked for a better life with food on the table and a roof over their heads. They had more to think about than their pee pees.
Ya, my pee pee could show you a thing or two. Oh Ya. 12 inches under my skirt here baby. lol or oh ya, 4 inches here of pure joy baybay. or oh honey girl you are getting me hot lets enjoy each other. My names' Lilly.
Oh you don't want to have sex with me? Why not? What's wrong with me? It makes me very unhappy you dont want to have sex with me. You don't want to make me unhappy do you?
You are racist.
Police.. arrest this woman.
Everything is just going too far.
Laws don't make people happy.
Society can't make people happy.
Sex can't make people happy.
Most things people do today, won't make them happy.
I heard one man say Nothing like a good hard days' work. You come home feeling you achieved something and this makes you happy. Puts a lot into perspective.
I love flowers. Don't you?
Well have a nice day.:)
This is a very nice shot of my flower and
also good for a postcard.
It invites you into another world.
It tantalizes you to try something different and to
explore your horizons.
The days begin wet and damp but later on the sun comes out.
I hope today will be no different.
Vanity Fair and Bruce Jenner is a sad story.
Will he be happier as a woman? It remains to be seen.
Most people would want to keep it private.
In his situation, he is rich enough to direct his own movies
and cross dress to his hearts' content without anyone knowing
He would not have had to upstage his wife and kids.
How can they compete now?
Looking into a mirror, what will his thoughts and memories be like?
Everything was built upon him being a man.
It is easier to make money making every one else do the work for him.
Think of how many shows will be inviting him to ask him how he feels now
and to have him say: Gee what have I done? Or maybe I love it in his mans' voice.
The questions of truth, will always remain .
People say coming out is better but how does it make one happy to do this?
Happiness comes from the inside , not the outside and Jenner still has a lot of issues
to sift through.
He doesn't have to spend a dime however and just keep raking it all in.
At 65? I'd say he can retire well , being truthfully, what ever and whoever he wants to be.
The public will believe anything.
There are so many normal people trying to live normal lives, struggling,
to keep the good faith and the good fight and they lose because society continues to
destroy all the good stuff.
Yet society wants the good stuff. Otherwise why does the news want to keep
astonishing the public?
One day when it will be abnormal to be normal, the news will change and head back
into the right direction but at what cost, psychologically, physically, socially?
How much will it cost the children of the future?
When looking at a dismal picture of the future, maybe nothing.
Maybe it doesn't matter anymore.
When hope is lost, what is there left to fight for
or to believe in for that matter?
Maybe once the news gets the drift that it has to scrape its' fingers not just to print news
but to survive as a human, they will realize the hell they created, to make them the criminals
people will want to stamp out, just to get some peace.
So sad that freedom , like everything else, is so abused.
We should be smarter than this, by this time.
