Did you know?

November 17, 2014

obama thinks he is king of the USA, maybe even the world.  He has reiterated he will use executive order regarding illegal immigrants.    Let me say that specific word again – ILLEGAL.  It wouldn’t be so bad, but what about those folks who spent time and money to become LEGAL citizens.  What a slap in the face to them.  Aside from the fact the first thing he will be doing is showing them they are rewarded for breaking the law.

I want to be fair about this and will expound on illegals in California – but California has a very different scenario than other states do.  We have several million (probably more than that) illegals here.  I will grant you MANY OF THEM are legitimate family members and work hard harvesting and keeping the fields of fruits and vegetables in the central valley.

They are not my main concern – but don’t forget they are still breaking the law.

The concern is with the gangs and cartels that are coming in substantial numbers into the USA.  Two of the most violent gangs on the planet were based in California in the beginning.  Now members of the gangs have been placed all over the United States.

I don’t have the specific statistics on this, but I know they are responsible (along with notorious Mexican criminals) for thousands of rapes, murders, theft, and other crimes of violence.

Even here in Northern California cartels have been planting illegal pot fields with thousands of plants.  Anyone going into the wilderness has to be careful as the fields are guarded.

I want to know when we elected a person to be king and dictator of the USA.  I don’t remember doing that.

Here are a couple of tidbits for you.  Did you know it costs six billion dollars to provide six astronauts with water for one year?  If you don’t believe me, check you it out.

Also the king just volunteered three billion dollars to help the “global cause” – it will be placed in a green climate fund.  The money will help developing nations.  Did you authorize these billions of dollars he is putting us in debt – or vote to do these things while our citizens are struggling to survive, and finding police forces and fire departments thinning down because of lack of funding?

I find it interesting that gays and lesbians are only one percent of the population of the USA, and yet they have managed by being the loudest voice, to even have the Supreme Court overturn state decisions – so marriage will be legal for them.  What happened to the MANY, MANY states that the citizens absolutely voted this down – even multiple elections voted against marriage except between a man and a woman?  Oh, I forgot.

The peasants do not have a voice any more, and if you think it’s not true – think again.

Lastly today (and I am not depressed – only disgusted with the king and the money men who control everything) – do not believe the economy is so much better.  Where is a list of these million jobs that were created?  I have never once seen a list.  Also, just because people are not signing up for unemployment does not mean we are better off.  Many have ran their unemployment into the ground, and many have just been out of the work force too long to get back in it…

Did you know Hewlett-Packard is reducing its work force by 55,000 jobs?  Also CNN, TBS, and TNT are slashing their work force by 10%.

As of last year many retail chain stores stopped offering insurance to workers who work thirty hours or less.  Walmart is one of the last to eliminate about 30,000 part time workers insurance plans.

Hmm that’s interesting.  Should help the obama government controlled insurance plan.

Don’t you think it’s lovely that young people are forced to buy insurance to help pay for those who are the “takers” in the society?

My oh my, I am glad I got these facts on paper and out of my system.  I guess we really owe a debt of gratitude to our king and the controlling folks for these things.  FYI, I will not give up or give in.

Cloth grocery bags, remote controls, and border control

November 2, 2014

This is why I vote for the cloth bag to put groceries in.Toe use

My bag broke and a can of dog food hit exactly where the toenail hits the skin. Ouch!

Probably will loose the nail.  This photo was taken two weeks after the fact.

The only drawback I can see for cloth bags is when there is a big family, it will take some large bags, or big trash bags. Don’t know how that will work….

———————–Remotes

Am I the only lame woman around,or do you think most women HATE remote controls? I hate them all. The reason my husband is in charge of them is because if I start to use them I still get totally lost!

————————————-

Lastly, what I cannot figure out is why our government is so “dull” (in the brain area) about keeping our borders safe.

The great wall of China was built in the 7th Century BC. to protect the Empire against intrusions.

The wall is 5,500 miles long and is one of the wonders of the world.

7th cent. BCOh, I remember why we can’t accomplish something like that. It is all about the way the government wants to do things, and the swaying of monies. The peasants have no say in anything really.

Mid-term elections cost at least a billion dollars – these folks pay millions each to be elected. It’s pretty lucrative LIFETIME EMPLOYMENT. Even if you aren’t elected again, you still get tons of perks.

Sorry about the photo being blurry – it is a copy of a copy!

———————————–

Can’t say any more than that as it is a beautiful day and I am going to go outside and enjoy these moments in time.

Here are some flowers to brighten your day if you are unable to enjoy the outdoors today.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMay these lovely flowers add a bit of sunshine to your day – and perhaps, a smile!

God bless you and those in the circle of your lives.

George Clooney or Brad Pitt and Angelina AND Halloween

October 30, 2014

Who is your favorite? Or favorites?

For me it is NOT EVEN George Clooney and his bride. He spent over $12 million dollars on their wedding. That seems ludicrous to me with so much poverty in the world.

One “tiny” little million donated to some needy situation, could save lives and make all the difference to many people. My personal feeling is that Hollyweird gets away with murder and the “stars” are paid way too much for their skills.

On the other hand, Brad and Angelina are always donating and Brad actually worked on building homes after Katrina. Angelina donates her time, as well, to those who need hope. And she physically donates her time, as well.

I was honestly never crazy about her until I saw an article about their recent wedding. It was modest. Their children were in it, they had about twenty guests, and the children’s artwork was on her veil.

AngelinaIt was such a loving gesture, and after reading about them – my vote is Brad and Angelina!   I never thought Clooney was very handsome – certainly not what the media reflects to the peasants (I am included in that).

———————————-

I heard on the news last night it would be improper to have a costume that represented someone with mental problems. Yet Hollyweird produces such shows a “Freak show”, and gets away with it.

“They” put in movies smoking, drugs, violence, sexual violence connected with rape and other problems we ALREADY KNOW ABOUT! They sensationalize the things that are going rampant in the USA.

Don’t ever believe that the influence these movies have on kids is minimal. Television, DVD or theatre, the influence is profound. PLEASE monitor your children. I don’t think any young person intends to do what is dangerous for their minds or bodies, but human have a natural tendency to mostly be “followers”.

We are creatures of habit, and if enough evil enters anyone’s mind, it is a sure bet it will produce like actions.

Whether you have children or not, these young people will be our next leaders. Give them the moral and mental training to be strong and think independently of what they are being fed!

————————————–

Lastly, my husband brought up a good point. Halloween has always been my least favorite holiday because it promotes evil and a surplus of sugar and alcohol. Of course I love seeing children in costumes, but seeing them go door to door offends my good senses.

My husband said, “Halloween sends the wrong messages on all levels. What happened to the old saying, DON’T TAKE CANDY FROM STRANGERS?”

Children parade door to door to stranger’s houses, and ask for candy. DUH.

I never thought of it that way, but it is right on.

Who profits from Halloween? Costume makers, candy makers, and dentists, aside from the fact horror and blood and guts is the theme. What’s wrong with that picture?

Perhaps you haven’t heard what happened a few years ago. Here are a couple of horror stories.

A few years ago, someone put needles into apples. Someone also injected poison into “something” that was passed out to children.

Take them to a party in a home, but remember YOU are in charge – they should not be the bosses of you just because you get tired of being the enforcer.

If you LOVE your children, get back to being the boss. Make sure also, technology does not RULE your family and your children. Ultimately those who fall under the rule of technology will make great “workers” for the ultra-rich….

Oprah has a billion dollars, but I have style!

October 16, 2014

I opted to model in this beret a “few” years ago – at least more than 25!  Yikes.Oprah

Mine was angora.  Ha ha.  I just think this is very funny.  “They say” every style that is old will come back again!  Proven here.  I do have some bell bottom slacks that I have had since the 60′s.  Wide bell bottoms to dance in.  Of course they are a tad tighter now!

Sometimes things are just funny to me.  Humor is healing, you know – and for me that is necessary!  Actually humor is very important for all of us to remember these days!

SMILE!  God bless you all.

EV – D68 ( Virus) : Children

October 7, 2014

Here is the latest update on EV-D68 (virus) It has now been recognized in forty-states. Please be sure to watch your children closely. The first signs mimic the common cold – (sometimes fever, runny nose, sneezing and coughing).

EV-D68 has many strains. In the fifties and sixties, it was the cause of cases of POLIO, though, it only recently has become a problem associated with serious respiratory conditions – particularly with those with asthma and those prone to breathing issues.

The virus mimics the common cold initially. The cough can be intense, and it can cause difficulty in breathing. Many children have neck or back pain or pain in the arms and legs (muscle and body aches). Listen to your children – they probably won’t read “what the symptoms are!”

As recent as within the last week, some cases are causing paralysis!!

If your child is sick – keep him or her at home! The virus passes from person to person, with a cough, sneezes or even touching surfaces. Sneezes travel at over 65 miles per hour.

The best defense is to have children WASH his or her hands vigorously several times a day. Not the kind of washing that water passes over, a dribble of soap, rinse and done!

Wash clear up to the wrists, and thoroughly. This virus is not restricted to the USA. It is MANY places in the world, so please care for these blessed little ones.

Show your children how you want them to wash. Show them how to cover their mouths, with bent elbow, when they cough. Be vigilant. One child has died in the United States. He was four years old.

God bless you and God bless all the children!

GOOD MORNING!

October 6, 2014

I believe it is a beautiful day.  Even if I didn’t, I would talk myself into it by creating new brain cell impressions:  It’s a beautiful day.  It’s a beautiful day.  It’s a beautiful day.

It works.  Thoughts become your life.  That’s kind of general, but it is true.  Also the creating of new brain cells is true!  We are a precision and wonderful human machine.  Far better than any mechanical thing!  Believe it!

Someone ask me if I would republish one of my posts, so that is what I am doing today.  If you haven’t read it, I hope you enjoy it.  I have published over six hundred and fifty posts!  Yikes – I must love to write!  Yes, I do.

So here it is.  Enjoy and CREATE a beautiful day for yourself and those in your circle of life.  Time is fleeting so take advantage of every single moment.

Rambling from the heart

Beautiful is a friend who always there for you, even if she should be taking care of herself.
Beautiful is kindness that comes directly from the heart, and is unending for those in need.
Beautiful is a smile that doesn’t have to be pasted on, but one that reflects joy and sincerity.
Beautiful is character that molds itself from life’s experiences, and grows in quality and positive traits.
Beautiful is being able to face someone and look them in the eyes and know they love you too.
Beautiful is faith that is recognized, and credit given to He that paid the highest sacrifice.
Beautiful is genuine motivation to give something in life that shares healing with others.

Beautiful is a word that cannot be fully described, yet you know when you see real beauty because there is a vibrance, and a shining glow that can only be captured with the word beautiful!

Be beautiful  – it’s possible for all – for beauty lies within the heart, so open yours and let your light shine.  When you love, love will come to you bountifully.

Learn to give, and you learn to live!

This photograph may have you wondering.  I will explain.  One day my daughter said her two children were bored.  She got creative.  She let them make a tent from moving a few things, using a few blankets, and a flashlight.  They had a blast and when done invited her to join them.  You can’t see the kiddos, but you can see my daughter’s leg.  Have fun with your children.  As I have said before, time is fleeting.  To finish – at some point, they all pitched in to clean things up.  What a great afternoon!

America’s Got Talent

September 17, 2014

I rarely recommend a television show but this one rocks.

If you are looking for a show that has “real entertainment” (and you can watch it with your kids, this is it) The show is children friendly, but the entertainment is for all ages, and this year it is the best ever.

There will be a winner tonight, but I cannot decide whom I would like to win. The balance acts, the magicians, the dancers and singers all all unbelievable. I would book them all if I were an agent.

The top three for me (but not in 1,2,3, order) are Sons of Serendip – The lead singer is not only extremely handsome and sexy, but he is such a fantastic singer. The three musicians are fantastic too. They make BEAUTIFUL music, and seem to be so whoesome and nice.

Quintavious – this twelve year old is absolutely unbelievable – an entertainer with a magical voice. He is funny, modest, and real and I just would love to give him a big hug.

Acro Army – this group you have to see to believe. They are acrobats, and dancers. Fabulous entertainment! Their act is choreographed beautifully and it is very dangerous as well.

WOW. I can’t pick from those three – can you? All the top six are great but these are my top three.
Who would you pick? Of course Miguel Dakota is a very good singer and he has charm and looks too!

The judges are funny and I like them all. So much better than sooooooo many violent and terrible shows. My husband also likes Sons of Anarchy, but I am glad this is the last season. It has gotten progressively violent – visual violence. I counted those killed in the show last night – only twelve persons! It didn’t matter with this show. Last season they killed men, women and children. Lovely example.

Sept. 11 – Music to honor firemen, policemen, and all those who lost their lives on that day…

September 11, 2014

And to honor all our military who have paid the ultimate price protecting citizens- either with the critical loss of body and/or mind quality, and those who have given their lives in the service of all of us in the United States of America.  God bless them, and God bless us all.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Dark River

September 10, 2014

Did you know I have an extremely talented twin brother?  I don’t think I have ever mentioned that, but I recently played his music, “The Twins”.  Check out their youtube video “The Twins”.

I was listening to one of his many songs (he and his very beautiful and talented wife, Lynn), sing and entertain together.

They have worried about our environment for years…they toured to entertain troops in Vietnam.  They toured the USA to teach children and actually everyone from kindergarten to the elderly, about love, family,  and how to protect the environment.  I ran across this song while listening to my itunes this morning. I thought I would share it – though written years ago, it is applicable to what is happening today.

Over the next few weeks I am going to share some of their pieces of music!  Have a beautiful day.

Hope you enjoy!

More information regarding children’s new virus

September 9, 2014

This virus is spreading quickly. If your child is sick – keep them home. Lots of good hand washing!

Really dangerous for those with asthma and/ or under 6.

Hits the lungs and child feels like lungs are closing – difficulty speaking, perhaps breathing. Begins like cold – sneezing, runny nose, and cough.

Virus stays alive on surfaces of things too.

Many in intensive care, so please be careful and watch your kids closely-particularly those with asthma or other breathing problems.

Authorities say if not in your state-it will be soon. I will be praying for all the children, and I hope you will too. These precious ones are in our care.

“At least 10 states — Missouri, Kansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Iowa, Colorado, Ohio, Oklahoma, North Carolina, and Georgia — have reported suspected outbreaks of human enterovirus 68 and requested CDC support.

“Viruses don’t tend to respect borders,” ABC News Chief Health and Medical Editor Dr. Richard Besser said. “It is only 10 states now, but it’s going to be across the country. So if your state doesn’t have it now, watch for it, it’s coming.”

“It can start just like a cold — runny nose, sneezing, coughs — but it’s the wheezing you have to watch out for,” Besser said.

At Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children, Dr. Raju Meyappan, a pediatric critical care physician, said he’s seen at multiple children end up in the pediatric intensive care unit after being infected with the virus and that children under the age of 5 or those with asthma appear to be most at risk.”
