This is what I think today

July 20, 2014

This post is my stance on what is happening in our society in the USA.

If I sound, in length here, wild and ranting a bit, I very well may be. I am fairly- no totally disgusted with so many things I am not sure where to start.

If you watch ANY news you will find the media pitting one country against the other. The horror of those killed on one side – the horrific splay of missiles being shot at the other.

Give sympathy to both and encourage then instill the hated and anger with each other.

Who shot the passenger airline down? Biden jumped the gun and with his hollow and unintelligent mumblings saying Russia blew the plane out of the sky. The “U.S.” concluded this. No, no, no…. those in “charge”, our rich and poorly representing government officials concluded this and the media assertively (but with obvious bowing to them) headlined it.

Russia against Ukraine – the United States against Russia. Sorrow, discontent, anger and then hatred.

Strange how hated is building for Russia since it gave Snowden asylum.

What happened to the Marine who accidentally went into Mexico? Where is the traitor Obama traded 5 terrorists for now?

Wow. One Marine accidentally goes into Mexico and is jailed?

62,000 children (and many mothers) come across our borders and our beloved obama makes sure he gets (I figured this out from the amounts obama requested) $25,000. per child to house and feed.

Problem with that is these children and mothers are being placed all over the country and they will be untraceable, melding into the 11 million illegal Mexicans already here.

Children are often are brought here by criminal enterprises that smuggle them through Mexico and into the United States. When they get across the border, the children often seek out American border guards. They know the Americans will help them and send to a facility with food and other services.

However, that being said, it is amazing with the violence in Mexico and the Cartel and terrorist criminals, that the children arrived safely – no kidnappings, no beheadings, no murders, rapes or forced child labor. Thank God.

Of course no one wants a child hurt ever, but still – how they got here is a wonder! Many have scabies and lice, and many have not had MMRV vaccines, thus possibly spreading disease ( if they enroll in school or are around children) to the children whose families questioned vaccinating their children.

Welcome to NLA (North Latin America), or MexiAmerica where Christians and white people are bad. I wonder how many of the south American mothers entering are pregnant? How many will land in rich households to be maids and gardeners for government officials and CEO’s of companies.

Some are being housed in L.A. and homeless are protesting because they are citizens and no one is providing housing for them. There are thousands on the streets.

It would be a good idea too, as a special amount of water in this drought, is being saved to wash urine and fecal matter from the homeless off of the sidewalks.

obama is a racist. He denies his white all together. If you wonder why I don’t capitalize obama, it is my way of showing disrespect.

Now to the latest fad-smoking the HOOKAH- 1 hour’s worth is comparable to smoking 200 cigarettes! Yuk. Slow suicide.

Much is made of cyber-bullying. I am sorry deaths have been reported because of this phenomenon. To me this says children and teens are spending way too much time on line, and on their phones. Duh!

Bullying in schools has gone on as long as I can remember – and I have a great memory and a few decades to have learned one or two things. Bullying is cruel. Where there are growing young minds, there will always be the mean ones! They are probably the ones who turn into bad adults. But my generation handled bullying in person, with people when it happened. There are some terrible things about technology, along side with the good, and I wish it weren’t that way, but it is.

Also the illusion that on line a child can have hundreds of friends is dangerous and a flawed misnomer. Much of what is on line, in magazines, and presented to us is simply lies promoting SALES! Also, of course, racism, anger, judgments, smoking, alcohol use,jealousy, and violence are condoned and promoted through movies. Holly weird loves to pass its messages on to the public.

Fact. Did you know only three percent of the population is actually gay or lesbian? Did you also know many state courts have turned the decision the people voted on (several more votes than one), to keep marriage sanctioned only between men and women, to accommodate the voice of the gay and lesbian community? The squeaky wheel gets the grease.

We live in a toxic, desensitized, technology-addicting environment. Some of the top shows are the sleaziest, most violent, depraved, and self-deprecating pieces of work ever presented to the public. Big brother is controlling the minds of all ages – has been doing so for years.

I know love and Spirit and God are still alive and well. I know that the USA has millions and millions of citizens that are still rooted in moral principles, and want peace between citizens and other countries.

I just wish everyone around the world would not “clump” the “people of the USA” with the government, politics and the media. That is the biggest lie of all. I know the heart of the people has hope and cares about other real citizens of this country and other countries I would love to see the “people” of all countries be represented fairly instead of by the corrupt behavior and greed of so few in charge.

There will be a time.

Forgive me if there are errors. I broke my wrist a week ago, had surgery to put in plate and screws day before yesterday, and I am typing with my right hand. (I am left-handed.)

Stay strong. Keep your line of demarcation for your principles and life’s direction visible and guarded. God bless us all!

Black Widow Spiders

June 15, 2014

First, I would like to say Happy Father’s Day to all you guys who have worked so hard to be a good dad! It is one of the toughest jobs a man can have, and the most enduring- even if unemployment is up! THANK YOU for sticking with it; those little ones need you guys…so to dads, step-dads, and all you guys who participate in the lives of children thank you for your dedication and patience!

BY THE WAY, this post just shows another important task of you fathers….protecting the little ones!  Also those women who might be afraid of spiders, for instance, myself!



Last evening my husband took a tour of our garage to find and “rid” us of any black widow spiders. He does this in the summer as they love dark places and our garage is a favorite hangout (also under things such as BBQ’s, outdoor tables, inside of wood piles-just as examples.)black widow


He found this one and asked if I would like to take a photo. She let me get quite close (though not too close for my comfort) – she was a big one. There are only four things I will kill if necessary: venomous spiders rattle snakes, mosquitoes and flies. The National Geographic website had this to report about black widows.

“This spider’s bite is much feared because its venom is reported to be 15 times stronger than a rattlesnake’s. In humans, bites produce muscle aches, nausea, and a paralysis of the diaphragm that can make breathing difficult; however, contrary to popular belief, most people who are bitten suffer no serious damage—let alone death. But bites can be fatal—usually to small children, the elderly, or the infirm. Fortunately, fatalities are fairly rare; the spiders are non-aggressive and bite only in self-defense, such as when someone accidentally sits on them.”

I think it is extremely important to put deet (mosquito repellent) on children and adults, if you are able. There is a new virus that makes a person very ill. Also, I have never been certain that they do not carry the aids virus. They do “take your blood” when they bite.

It always pays to be aware of some spiders – for your children’s safety. I wrote a post a while back about the brown recluse, and posted a photo of the damage one can do…it is deadly.

Northern California host’s lots of rattle snakes. Clearly if you hear a rattle and there isn’t a baby around – keep your eyes keenly aware of your surroundings.

This isn’t to alarm anyone, but knowledge is power when used and we all should share information that could be life saving. Someone made me aware of the brown recluse.

Oh the web of a black widow is very sticky-you can tell if it’s a black widow; and they hide during the light.

Enjoy the great outdoors – enjoy nature – just use good sense, and particularly for the little ones as they trust you to care for them. Have a beautiful day and a safe one! God bless you all.


I will be placing this same post on the website today because of it’s importance to us all.





Do you love your children?

June 5, 2013

Violence and horror in the USA

Twenty-year old Dillon Quick told authorities that he thought about stabbing people at age eight.  It has also been brought to the public’s attention that he had thought about cutting off people’s faces, and eating them.  Articles found in his home include an animal dissection book, and a Hannibal lector mask.

Last night my husband and I watched two programs on television that we watch weekly.  One is  “The Americans” and the other is “Southland”.  My husband likes action shows, and the writing is okay on both.

Do you know how many deaths occurred in eight Quentin Tarantino movies?  Approximately five hundred and sixty!

There are approximately four hundred and forty three thousand deaths from smoking each year, two hundred thousand rapes (female/male) per year,

fifty thousand deaths per year from violence, and over ten thousand drunk driving fatalities  (one hundred and fifty thousand alcohol related deaths) in the USA.  Over one hundred and fifty MILLION drivers were arrested in 2010 for driving under the influence of alcohol or narcotics.


What do these paragraphs have in common? Hollywood.  You can watch a movie, television, or something produced in Hollywood on the internet, and you will be guaranteed of one thing ninety-eight percent of the time.  There will be someone smoking, a violent rape, casual and consistent drinking of “straight” shots of hard liquor, shootings, stabbings, horrific and hideous actions portrayed by the “famous” and the “wanna be” famous.

 GUESS WHAT?  Many people are highly infatuated with “movie stars” due to media coverage.  I really love the award shows they concocted to promote themselves, so they can give themselves presents, awards, and publicity.  The millions and millions and millions of dollars these people make is not enough.  Johnny Depp made thirty-five million dollars alone for the movie Pirates of the Caribbean. They even get a pass from our illustrious “wanna be” a star, and king of the world obama.

I know – athletes make fabulous money.  Corporation CEO’s make millions.

Surgeons make millions (however they save lives and do unbelievably wonderful things for human beings sometimes. 

So what is it that REALLY maddest me mad about the “movie stars”?  Re-read paragraphs one through five again.

These people can promote their politics, donate their time for a concert to help raise money for a cause (even though they could each donate a million dollars – and quit asking peasants for help.  They can even open schools for a “chosen” few to educate them.

BUT ARE THEY ASKED TO NOT PARTICIPATE in all the “acting” that reviles everything normal families and citizens consider honorable and good.  NOPE!  They are fed millions to feed the peasants. In my mind, incidents that happen regularly have been washed over our brains repeatedly until we become insensitive to many, and obsessive for more blood and violence.

Scenarios are created by persons who may be just a “bit off”, mimicking

What has become daily food for their minds? 

Little children are placed in front of the television to give two working parents a break (perhaps).  But insidious and questionable materials are presented to these children as early as six o’clock in the evening, and from that hour forward.  Parents get tired.  Tired of monitoring EVERYTHING from television to music, to the Internet, to the cell phone, a parent’s guard is let down “just for a few.”

Honestly, having the Internet available on cell phones has just made the burden more difficult……. 

These are problems WE, as parents, grandparents, friends, and neighbors, must address.  If we don’t get some control the next couple of generations will be OUT OF CONTROL.

Respect has almost become a word unknown to children because of the “no spank” laws that are used to intimidate parents.  I, personally, think a good swat on the behind is an “attention getter”.  I don’t mean a swat to relieve your stress, but a swat to just get a child’s attention.

HOWEVER you decide to handle your children is your business, but GET INVOLVED in their “growing into adults”.  I know it’s rough, and especially for working parents and single moms and dads, but NO ONE else can help the children unless you get involved….don’t wait until it’s too late and the person who gets involved is the parole officer!   Don’t wait until they are pregnant!  DON’T wait a moment longer…EVEN if you have to be the bad “guy”.  You CANNOT be your child’s friend until they are grown.

They are the innocent ones.  They are SCREAMING for your consistent, fair, and REAL attention. 

If you need to, get help.  Read a book on parenting at your child’s appropriate age, counsel with other parents or a church group, and for heaven’s sake, pray! 

I speak with love and from experience regarding these things.  Lastly, put down the wine glass or your drink when the glass is empty the first time.

Don’t have regrets that could have been joyous moments!














February 15, 2013

I’ve never done a movie review in my life, though I have seen many stinky ones and many wonderful ones.  I am not a “fan” nor do I get faint or scream when a “star” comes near.

We are all people and they get paid more than fine surgeons, whether they produce something of quality or some hideously violent and murderous film.

My complaint has been “too much intense” focus on sex and violence concurrently, too many criminals being glorified (even on television on such shows as “Inmates”), too much smoking, and too little healthy humor and quality writing.

Though I think there have been stunning examples of all those qualities that would actually “teach the uneducated”, instead of being poor examples.

Last evening I rented a movie named PILOT.  Denzel Washington is a fine actor and his movies are usually thick with adventure and exciting scenarios.  I am trying to, but can’t recall a movie he has made that didn’t have a good point ultimately.  Anyway, I rented it for my hubby for Valentine’s Day.

I RECOMMEND this movie.  Yes it has a glimpse of nudity, but not reckless nudity; meaning demeaning and succinctly placed with horror of some type.

Yes it has drugs and lots of alcohol.  Yes, there is excitement that will keep you on the edge of your seat.  There are a few spots that might seem slow, but wait for it…

Hats off to Denzel Washington for a FINE portrayal of a real character.  He chose an excellent script that sends two  IMPORTANT messages to its audience.  Check it out and see if you discover what they are.  I would be interested in your thoughts.

Remember, different strokes for different folks, but I prefer NOT to sit in front of a movie that leaves me with less than when I began it.  We have plenty of evil and worthless crap going on in real life every day.

I’ve never written a review before, so it must have said something to me.

CREATE your life.  “As you thinketh, so shall you become.”  Make those thoughts and visions worthy of your Spirit within.

Shooting Leaves Twenty Children and Six Adults

December 15, 2012

I just heard about today’s shooting of so many children and adults.  I can think of nothing more horrific than the killing of innocent children. This will affect the lives of the parents, grandparents, siblings, peers, and a list of other bereaved human beings.  This will change hundreds of lives in that small Connecticut town of only ten-thousand people.

It will affect every parent and grandparent regardless location, around the world.  Needless and life-changing moments for so many.

With all my heart and living soul, over my lifetime, I believe that those sweet and innocent souls are with their makers, and the adults, as well.If you’ve ever been in an accident you will find that the “moment” of the accident is all but erased from your memory.  I pray that for all these souls that moment was the same, and that now they are at rest with no pain and no anguish.

This is NOT a political act.  Please leave the politics of “guns – legal or not” OUT of your conversation for at least a few days.  Your mind should be filled with prayers, and your heart ready to love when you are able.  No one deserved this.  Not one child ever!

I’ve cried and been on my knees praying for their spirits and those who are left to deal with hard days and months, and years, to come.

Please pray and love those near you.  We never expect things like this to happen.  It is one of the saddest days I’ve known.



Fires in Northern California

August 22, 2012

“Happy Birthday to me,” he thought, as the alarm woke him, with a startle.  He’d worked all weekend on the fire that had begun with a single strike of lightening.

It grew from five hundred acres to over nineteen thousand in less than three days.  The fireman told him it usually takes many days for a fire to grow with such viciousness.  An unwilling, evacuated participant in this event said, “It is just evil, that’s all!”

He agreed.  Today he was not driving his mechanic’s truck, and doing the repairs that were needed.  He was waiting for assessment of the fire, and the plan to quell it’s unquenched need for tall pines incinerated by giant walls of flame.

It was three AM and he’d had a restless sleep.  He thought of the firefighters on the job – always ON the job. He pulled on his boots and kissed the wife goodbye.  He smiled as he went out the door.

Scorching heat, and that was just another summer day.  As he reached the point that only special personnel could pass, the smoke lay on the floor of the valley but it was gaining momentum in the air, like a bank of fog rolling in at the coast.

His nostrils began to close up, and his eyes burned from the smoke in the air.  He thought of the firefighters.

Briefly he was told what was happening, and then put on the dozer.  Down in the valleys he went, and up the hills.  Hour after hour, sweat pouring like the summer rain that didn’t come.

In the late afternoon he got a call that a fire truck was stuck  and unable to move. His job was to pull it out, and fast.

‘Where is it?” he asked.

“Down into that valley that is ahead, and then up the hill.  They should be there.”

But they weren’t.  He reached the top of the hill and looked all around and no one was in sight.   A muffled sound entered his right ear and instinctively he turned that direction.  There on the next hill over was a fire truck with several men all on top, waiving frantically.

He hovered on top of the rough terrain, and made his way to the truck.  Relieved, the firefighters were more than willing to help, if they were needed.

They looked ragged and dirty, but were outwardly still enthusiastic about putting this fire in its place of containment and then ending it once and for all.

He’d been given a gift.  A gift of being able to visualize how anything mechanical should be, in order to work.  He could see a resolve in any mishap of anything that needed to be fixed, or moved or rescued.  He was a binder of that which needed to be bound.

Within the hour he had the truck up out of the mud, and up and running.  A quick and sincere thank you from all concerned to the others, everyone made tracks to get this evil under control.

After sunset, after supper, after any time or desire to celebrate his birthday he’d totally forgotten, he came in the door.

He still had the love respond to the dogs joy to see him, with patience.  His wife kissed him and told him to get off his boots and she would get his supper.  “Happy Birthday” she said as she rushed to fix him a plate.

He was filthy and weary.  He washed his hand, and he sat in his shorts, in his big blue chair. He waited for – he wasn’t sure for what now – he was so tired.

She asked him all about the day and he was ready to share then,only resting for a moment to take an occasional bite of the overcooked supper she’d kept warm.

He said, “I thought I was going to loose it going down the hill in the dozer today.”

“Was it exciting?” his wife asked.  He rarely had fear.

“No.  It was scary.  I thought I was going to totally roll the dozer and me.”

She stared and gulped and became frightened for the first time.

“It was a good day,” he said, as meandered down the hallway in his shorts barefooted, boots in hand, and headed for a shower.  “It was a good day.”

“Amen” she whispered.


Unbridled prayers, love, and appreciation to the fire fighters who put their lives on the line for us and the lands, and to all those who are a part of this endeavor to stop the fire in it’s path.  It is a task that is daunting, to say the least.  We all thank you with all our hearts.

By the way, the man is my husband, Michael – my gift from God.

Occupy What? Gas prices?

February 18, 2012

Occupy what? It’s one of those times when I awake that I must sit and write.
I don’t understand the occupy movement. I know youth is full vibrant, and full of
hope and dreams…I understand that. I still have dreams.

But I see no great help from the occupy movement. I wonder who has the time to sit and camp and make a bad reputation for the entire movement.

I wonder what they are accomplishing except a further division between people of the USA. The program now, if you aren’t aware of it, is to divide and separate the people of the USA. Technology is a vast part of this movement, though I love the use of technology in the positive way, and I felt lost the last 10 days with no access to the internet, and limited “connections”.

Would someone please tell my why the violence in the occupy movements; why the rapes and disheveled attitudes of the people in general.

Why are they there? They are but pawns in this movement to control the people. The media is there to tear out the worst of it and, as they do, point out all the lies and negativity of everything!

Next. I dreamed of a nuclear reactior sitting in the middle of the small town, surrounded by the village and mountains. No one seemed to notice.
I was sickened.

When I noted to everyone it was there, it was obvious they had chosen to ignore it. They were given whatever they wanted to shut them up, and then they could go on living as they chose.

When I have soil in my yard I plant vegetables and flowers and trees. I clean up the area. I use it to partake of nature and keep it harm free. The dream was a nightmare.

For the energy provided, are those fifteen (I think) new reactors to be built worth the risk? Ask the Japanese people.

I don’t understand why we can’t use our resources and oil and keep the price of gas down so the downtrodden citizens (and we are) can afford to live…
if not barely!

I don’t give a crap about politics. It’s all a lie for power and money. Don’t you think you’d vote for the candidate who spent his millions on the poor, the Red Cross, and to help others? I would. But it’s never going to happen.

We’ve been duped. We are being torn apart on grounds of culture, sexual preferences, religion, and world trade. A house divided – falls.

Pray (whatever spiritual path you follow). Love one another. Do what you can that MAKES A DIFFERENCE. Take time to sign a petition, if it is valid. Stop wasting hours on useless places on the internet. Do something.
Play with a child. Work hard, or look for work, hard. Don’t give up, but don’t give in.

I’ve lived a large portion of my life, but I will never give up hope and faith.
Do what you know to be right in your heart. Pull together as a people in the secret of keeping your thoughts and actions worthy. You will know a brother or a sister. Bond in ways that will hold the fabric of YOUR lives together – if not for you – for the children.

Try to “get it” – we are on the precipice of Mad Max, and in the center of Big Brother. If you don’t know what I mean, if you can’t relate, ask someone.

God bless you all. I just returned from a 10 day trip to see my husband and welcome my new grandson. I have to catch up, so if there are errors, I will correct later….was just impelled to write this…and these days, I listen to that inner voice EVERY time. Much love to my human brothers and sisters. Bond.

You’d better enjoy every single moment you can!

September 11, 2010

One thing in life that is guaranteed is that YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT WILL HAPPEN THE VERY NEXT MOMENT! I feel so terrible for those unsuspecting families in San Bruno. My daughter lived in that community until just a few months ago when she moved to a home a bit south (Burlingame)…just miles away.

She told me mostly there are families and elderly living in that area. So many lives changed in the blink of an eye. Many homes destroyed (over forty now, I think) – four lives lost for sure, and they are still checking as the area is just now “cooling down”.

A gas line underground just BLEW – it was like a bomb went off, I’ve heard. Fire storm – sent so many to the hospital with severe burns; some critical. PG&E said, of course, they would take responsibility if it is their responsibility. Can they reincarnate the dead, grow new skin for burn victims, replace personal items collected over a lifetime, and start the day tomorrow morning like any other? I don’t think so.

The terrifying part if you’ve never been to SF is that for miles all along the hills, and right into the city there are homes and apartments built right next to each other-mile after mile after mile.
Many of them are sitting on a keg of dynamite, and God forbid, if a major earthquake hits, it could cause much more than just the shaking of the earth.

Please pray for those involved, and all the innocents throughout the world that suffer through no fault of their own. Take a breath and sit back and appraise what you consider to be important in your life. Throw out the meaningless trash and worry and re-evaluate what you will spend your moments doing.

Tell someone you love them. I surely did!

Quran, Infrastructure and Refinance Horror

September 8, 2010

Did you know there are several different publications of the Holy Quran? Have you read even one of them? No? I haven’t either. I’ve read the Bible and thoroughly “get it”. I haven’t read the Quran because I am not of the Islam faith. I think this idiot that declares God has spoken to him is nothing but an instigator who now loves the publicity.

If he were truly a Christian he would know in the Bible it says “Each man must choose”; he would also favor the forgiveness and love Jesus showed….he would be a man of peace.

His church is a total of FIFTY people. He DOES NOT represent AMERICA.

“It is the duty of Muslims to react,” said Mohammad Mukhtar, a cleric and candidate for Afghan parliament.
“When their holy book Quran gets burned in public, then there is nothing left. If this happens I think the first and most important reaction will be that wherever Americans are seen, they will be killed. No matter where they will be in the world they will be killed.”

So there it is. A nat’s ass of a man who calls himself a Christian is instigating violence all over the world because of his stupidity. Who will suffer? The INNOCENT PEOPLE that always suffer…..

Just as I believe the Muslims should show “respect” and build elsewhere than at the 9/11 sight, I think Jones should show respect and back off of burning the Holy Quran.

He is NOT my representative of Christianity, nor of my beliefs. He is ONE MAN and FIFTY people – for the sake of millions he needs to be stopped somehow…
obama, wasn’t the first offering of billions of dollars given to the banks and who knows where else (I understand there are still unspent billions) – supposed to include money for infrastructure projects?

Of course obama was talking to unions about another fifty billion dollars to stimulate the flailing economy and repair highways and railways (what about bridges and levees?). They donated billions to get him into office and this is part of their payoff. What happened to the last stimulus money and jobs?

A world class train to keep up with Europe? How about food on the table?

I have an idea. Let’s bring all the jobs that are in India, the Philippines, etc.etc.etc. home. It would be employment for many Americans. Let’s insist manufacturers leave China and Mexico, and other countries, and come home to make things in America.

I am so sick of picking up ANY object and seeing the “made in China” – a reminder that almost everything is made in China. Don’t dead dogs, paint on cribs that make infants sick, toys that are toxic, etc. etc. say, “Made in China is crap”.

I am tired of NOT being able to understand an AT&T operator because the call is routed to India. I am NOT opposed to having a difficult time understanding someone who is from India, but let it be AMERICANS that hold the jobs….India’s citizens IN AMERICA.
Here it is. The last complaint of the day.

My husband has been working out of town for 1 1/2 years in order for us to exist. We pay two rents. We pay our bills on time and our credit scores reported from all three agencies are between 789 and 800. That’s very, very good.

We WERE middle class Americans. We have never been late on a mortgage payment. We tried to get a refinance at the incredible interest rate that is happening now. Guess what?

Because of the foreclosures and folks having to sell cheaply just to get something from their home they can no longer afford – WE DON’T QUALIFY. Our appraisal
(because of the activity of the homes surrounding us) is too low. We are dead in the water.

So WHY are we working so hard to be good citizens? I am not sure. The people behind us only pay $80.00 because they are in HUD housing….they party all the time and get drunk and wasted, and get medicade and food stamps. Yahoo.

I also find it sickening that EVEN AFTER heart surgery or any medical service given to those on medicade, they still are allowed to smoke!

Here are another couple of ideas:
Drug test those applying for HUD housing. Make it a stipulation that if anyone has a medical problem that can be caused by smoking – they can only get the service if they quit doing it.

It all makes me feel frazzled!

Hmmmm. This week my husband and I are rethinking our lives. We are not criminals or evil people. We are good people – but something has to change. We are throwing away our time together working for NOTHING..
we pay illegals, prisoners, users, indigents, and drug users. What is wrong with this picture????

Can you relate?

Phew. Time to reheat my morning coffee, step out into the yard and count my real blessings…love, health, a cool morning, and hope!

I vow to find humor somewhere in the day and I know it will also help to get me back to my old self!

Feels good to release my thoughts from festering within.

Remember: No matter what happens or what you fear, you have the CHOICE to create each moment of your life.
Choose carefully as there is no guarantee of how many moments any of us have left.

Oh, and remember to vote. I am a political atheist, but I want REAL change…yes I do!

Dog vs. Porcupine – Dog looses!

June 24, 2010

I don’t know who’s photos these are so I can’t give credit, but they are amazing and mind/and heart wrenching.

These photos make me kind of ill with pain for the dog. My friend sent these to me (she got them from somewhere on the internet). I thought them worthy of posting because I had a malamute that did the same thing…quills on the tongue, in the mouth, in the ears. It was awful. She disappeared for a couple of days and I went in search of her. I carried her down the mountain (can’t believe I could do that) – and she also went to vet and was put out in order for the vet to remove all the quills. What I wanted to mention was that I’ve heard from many people that once your dog goes after a porcupine they will DO IT AGAIN! So be careful. This just makes me hurt – but at least both dogs were okay in the long run!

Oh, by the way, the reason I post my writing to so many categories-sometimes-is because I feel the material may be important or helpful to someone reading that is really in a different category. Information is power if it’s TRUTH.

Lastly, this is a great sight for PARENTS:

We all need to know what acronyms the kids are using to communicate on line. (Acronyms are words formed from initials of other words)

Happy Day!
