OK Lucky you got your Christmas wish I’m on here. It’s been a busy year with 2 kids and 7 rescue animals to tend after and out of Country Company who came to the desert to get warm and a day later we have a blizzard, so to speak, that came down from Colorado. The Northern part of the State received massive snow and left kids stranded at school with no way to get home but walking. In fact, my daughters friend had to walk home in tennis shoes.
The Valley Floor, where I live had torrential rain and ungodly wind. I got off easy with Christmas decorations blown down, but my neighbors had massive damage and trees blown down across their property and a huge tree that crossed the main street to get to their property. My entire neighborhood had clean up crews at their house and I was so thankful I was not one of them.
Thought my cousin was going to have a heart attack over the weather, it’s not the kind of weather she and her husband have ever seen before in their life. It get’s cold in Great Britain but it was nothing like what they have ever experienced before. It’s good Karma, they lived through it and are now taking control of the 8 month old kittens who have no idea what that Christmas Tree is doing in the living room, but it looks like fun to play with and around.
Happy Holidays to all!

I would like to share a personal story about HEALTH CARE in this Country. I’m not trying to make your decisions, I am however, trying to understand the stupidity of Doctors who use scare tactics if you don’t have Health Care. I’m not happy over the fact that I am a widow raising to 2 teenage children on my own. My husband, who was the main bread winner, died leaving me his debt that I am obligated to pay. I was given no choice. I applied for health insurance after his health coverage cancelled the policy because of his death. I applied with a Health Insurance Company, but my children and I were denied because I take thyroid medication and my children’s doctor would not release their medical history because they were minors. I was never given the option of allowing their medical files to be released. It’s hard to know what to do when you are confronted with a situation you have never had to handle. I’ve grown up since then and the stress I went through with my husband’s death that took a while to get over.
In that while of growing up I kept hearing my Great Grandfather telling me as a child to “pay attention to your surroundings”. What I found in my surroundings was arrogant self serving people who only cared about how much they used you and made in dollar signs, off of you.
3 years and 9 months ago on New Year’s day my daughter was called by a neighbor to come and babysit their 9 year old daughter. The father of the child was playing golf and afterwards drinking at the “Counry Club”. The mother left her child home alone while she went to the bar. The girls were watching T.V. when the father came home and told them to go outside and play on the trampoline. What do kids do when they are told by adults to do something, they usually do it. My daughter broke both of her lower leg bones in half. The father had left, didn’t tell the girls and when his daughter called him he refused to come home.
My daughter laid on a trampoline for 30 minutes in pain because the father didn’t believe it actually happened when his daughter called him. My daughter finally called me and I showed up before the father who was closer to the house than I was. $34,ooo.00 in medical bills and a lawsuit that has taken 3 years and 9 months to settle and I lost my job staying home to take care of her for 6 weeks because there was no one else to do it. My daughter couldn’t even get to the bathroom by herself. I was denied State benefits to cover her medical bills because I had a retirement account left to me by my husband.
I was unemployed because the economy fell and jobs were suddenly hard to come by in the state of Arizona.
Fast forward to this year in June. My 16 year old son, an honor student, was complaining of pain in his rib cage and chest area. His doctor requested I send him to Phoenix Children’s Hospital. He was in the hospital 6 hours on an EKG machine. Three doctors said all he had was inflammation in his rib cage. He was given Ibuprofen and was fine, until the Cardiologist’s office called to do another EKG. My sons entire hospital bill was $1300.00 for 6 hours, the Cardiologist charge me $847.00 for one EKG and my son was in that room with a nurse practitioner for 10 minutes. Several days went by before that office called and wanted to do a stress test I refused because of their prices and the nurse practitioner told me on the phone he was extremely ill and could drop dead at any moment and I would be responsible. I didn’t believe her so she had the Cardiologist call me to tell me the same thing over the phone. They gave gave him an echo gram instead and did not charge me. They waited a week to give me the result that showed nothing. So they re-asked for the for a tread mill test at no charge, however the bill came later, over 800.00 dollars. Then they wanted to do an MRI for $10,ooo.oo that had to be paid up front. He didn’t get the test.
Every test my son had he was told NOT to EAT before that test. The nurse practitioner showed me a comparison to the hospital tests and told me he was extremely ill.
I’m not that stupid, I got a second opinion by 2 doctors. I was told to make sure he had food on his stomach before the EKG. In the end the only thing wrong with him was he drank to much water that flushed all of his electrolytes out of his body. He was told to drink Gator Aid and he has been fine every since then. His EKG’s have been normal since.
My point to this blog, for those of you who want to call Government Health Care Socialized Medicine I really could care less, you can call it whatever you want. I have dual citizenship with Ireland, however, when I was living in England I fell and broke my ankle. I was taken to the hospital, a cast was put on and I didn’t pay a dime of money I didn’t have. There are millions of citizens in this Country who can’t afford Health Insurance and just can’t get it because of a “pre-existing condition”.
By the way, my son was also denied State Health Care because I receive Social Security Death Benefits that the State of Arizona claims to be more than enough that is suppose to go to health insurance and a college fund. Obviously, they haven’t checked the price of food, gas or the job market in Arizona lately and I am State Licensed in my profession. I’m lucky to work 3 days a month.
It’s really sad that political promises by State Officials are nothing more than promises and a bag full of lies. Be very careful of who you vote for in your State next year.
There are thousands of people in this Country that judge what they see in T.V. commercials to be the truth to save money on a to good to be true scheme. At least one Insurance Company that pays millions of dollars in commercial advertising that is the biggest rip off company that you could choose. If you are watching commercials from Progressive , who offers a multitude of Insurance BEWARE that what you hear in these commercial in not fact based. Progressive uses AUTO OWNERS INSURANCE who actually thinks every accident is YOUR fault and you need to pay for it out of your pocket.
Should you complain about their system and why they haven’t contacted you they will defiantly give you the run around until you get so frustrated you have to file a lawsuit. However, don’t expect that lawsuit to end anytime soon because they will to anything, at all costs, to avoid making a decision.
Unfortunately when my husband died I could no longer afford medical insurance. My next door neighbor’s father was wealthy and owned a business that was given to her oldest sister. Her sister has a daughter who it a trained gymnast, who has a trampoline. My daughter was called on New Years Day to come and babysit her 9 year old. The mother went out drinking with her friends and the father was playing golf. Since my daughter had taken classes with the American Red Cross and had baby-sat many times before, without any incident, I really didn’t think it was much of a problem. My concern was a 9 year old child that was left alone, when her parents obviously thought she was unable to stay by herself after they left her alone by herself. I took my daughter to the house. The little girl was watching T.V. so my daughter sat down with her. Several minutes later the father came home and told the girls to “go outside and play on the trampoline”.
When children are told by a male authority figure to go do something, they usually, don’t question the command. The girls did exactly what they were told. Unfortunately, the trampoline was broken and the parents knew it. My daughter broke her 2 lower leg bones in half and had to have surgery and titanium rods put in her leg. The child that lived in the house ran inside to get her father, but he had left without telling them. The child of the house found a cell phone and called her dad. He was at the drug store buying alcohol and snacks and told my daughter her leg wasn’t broken and to shake it off and walk it off. After 45 minutes and 3 phones to the father he told my daughter to call her mom. I got there before the father. He assured me her medical bills would be covered by there insurance.
Go figure wealthy people with cheap a insurance company that don’t pay on accidents. My daughters medical bills were over $30,000.00. I was denied State insurance because I had a retirement account that I refused to “give away”.
I filed a lawsuit and it’s been over 2 1/2 years and they refuse to even acknowledge my attorney’s final offer before going to trial.
I am just forewarning you before you make a mistake of using “AUTO OWNERS INSURANCE COMPANY”. Find a reputable Insurance Company.
Since when do the elected officials of this Country try to take away our God given right to make our choices, pertaining to our personnel experiences we came here to work out, all on our own, as they arrogantly assume control of it’s citizens decisions. When are they going to wake up and realize that this Country is not about them, it’s about WE THE PEOPLE! These politicians have gone to great lengths to NOT Provide American Citizens with HEALTH CARE!
Think about it!!!! How many of you are struggling financially? How many of you have had their Credit Reports ruined because you lost your job and have to wait up to 7 years before it’s no longer on your credit report and can’t get anything done in your favor? How many of you have had homes that suffered foreclosure and you are not living in the style you had? How many of you live in a State where your State Government really doesn’t care, because they believe it’s your fault for not being the Almighty Rich Citizen? Did we all really come here to be rich or do we come here for our personal goals we need to accomplish on our own?
Are you aware that Companies out there are not hiring people, who pay taxes, because they might have a drink or two or smoke. Companies aren’t hiring disabled people because they only want to hire healthy strong workers. They aren’t hiring older workers because they feel they can’t produce enough. WHAT HAPPENS TO AMERICA WHEN MOST OF THE PEOPLE ARE OUT OF WORK AND NO TAXES ARE BEING PAID?
Is dictating to me from another Human this Countries course of action to be our NEW WAY to life? THAT’S NOT FREEDOM OF CHOICE!
If the Arrogance and Control is to be our new way of life, the FEDERAL Government and Corporations have serious issues.
As long as we still have FREEDOM OF SPEECH everyone needs to express their opinion against the CONTROL of our lives. SLAUGHTERING THE CONSTITUTION IS A CRIME BEYOND REPROACH.
It’s not even funny to me that Google and their buy out of Yahoo are arrogantly trying to control what’s on the internet.
Let it RIP VERBALLY before you no longer have FREEDOM OF SPEECH and CHOICES TO MAKE IN YOUR LIFE!!!!!!!!
NEXT YEAR IN 2010 VOTE AGAINST THE PEOPLE RE-RUNNING AND KNOW YOUR POLITICIANS VIEWS BEFORE YOU VOTE.
WEREN’T MOST OF THE LAST BABY BOOMERS RAISED WITH FREEDOM OF CHOICE? WHAT’S HAPPENING TO THIS COUNTRY??????
STUDY YOUR POLITICIANS BEFORE YOU VOTE AND IF THEY ARE AGAINST THE PEOPLE ‘S RIGHTS, VOTE THEM OUT OF OFFICE.
If I didn’t live in Arizona and my late husband didn’t die because of the stupidity of himself and the arrogance of the drug runners from Mexico, I probably wouldn’t be so irate over some of the Dumb-Asses in this Country pushing to legalize ALL illegal drugs. Are these people really that ignorant to think no one is going to buy them just because they are legal? There are 900,000 thousand teenagers selling drugs in this Country. Are all of YOU parents really that stupid that you just don’t have the time or even care to monitor what your own children are doing? You brought them into this world and it is your legal right and job to know everything they are doing and the type of people they are hanging out with. Of course, kids never like parents telling them what to do, but how much to you really know what these drugs do to the body and the brain of a human being?
My kids saw what crystal meth did to their father. He became mentally ill from the drug and ended his life by hanging himself, but not before he tried to kill us well over 6 times. They live with it everyday of their life, since he committed suicide, knowing what they went through with him . They saw and experienced things kids should never have to deal with in a lifetime. Unfortunately, The Arizona Courts were not sympathetic and made me beg for two Orders of Protection for my kids and myself. It was worth it, my son is an honor student and my daughter, well, she is still a bubble head, but she stays away from all kids that have anything to do with drugs, stealing and lying just to cover themselves.
I know who my kids friends are because I have that right as a parent to know everything they are doing.
Personally, I really believe that we should have our own military controlling the American side of the border, but if you don’t live in a border state, you really couldn’t possibly understand the magnitude of the problem. We are the highest ranked State in kid napping and illegal drug use. It becomes just another News story that people just don’t want to hear about because it’s easier not take back control of what is going on around you. Grow up because it will never get better until you stand up and fight for your rights as an American. It not just the border states being affected, it has become the problem of an entire Country.
From my best friends perspective, living in Ohio during the ice storm, the Eastern portion of the United States is getting colder in the winter and more humid and weather dramatic in the summer and from my perspective the Desert Southwest, where I live, it’s getting hotter in the summer and colder in the winter. From the Government’s perspective, based off of millions of taxpayer dollars, people breath to much emitting carbon poisons that pollute the air and have to many children to feed and diaper, too many car emissions that we pay boo coo bucks to get licensed every year, as the Government allows the cutting down of the Rain Forest to rid it of “dead growth”, while they allow the wood to be used to build cheesy homes no one can afford, yet we are funding Banks no one can get a loan in leaving our credit reports ruined, which unable us to move forward in our lives. Too many air polluting cars and earth polluting nuclear waste, not to mention the sea polluting aliens spaceships living in the oceans leaving nuclear waste. HMMM!
Now we have been accused of being a Nation of Cowards that fight for the FREEDOM of this Country and always have, from that one Government jerk that was born and raised here. Dang, it doesn’t sound to promising for the planet as we begin the movement out of the Industrial Age.
Everyone has an opinion, remember freedom of speech, which is a must, but not necessary for Government Officials making ignorant comments to the public.
Things will be tuff for all U.S. Citizens for a while and the world as a whole, while other people quit believing there is no Higher Power or our Higher Power comes from aliens beings. We are in an 11 year, which is a spiritual year. You were given the Power of Choice, make good use of it, cause we may be wrong about our personal opinion’s.
For those who don’t believe in anything changing in 2012, well it may not be a perfect year, but it will get better. I know it’s a wait, but right now you don’t have a choice.
In the mean time, stick your head out the window and scream at the top of your lungs “I m mad as Hell and I’m not going to take it anymore.” Then do something about it.
This Country is getting a new President in one week and how many people are going to blame him for all the last President’s stupidity and lack of care for the people in this Country? Not to mention all the campaign promises that the New President promised and won’t be able to deliver because of this current administration. We are all human and every one of us makes mistakes, but the mistakes Bush made takes an all time precedence as a President of the most Powerful Country in the World, in having down right greedy, self serving people around him feeding his own ego of arrogance and incompetence. If you really thought about it, it could make you sick to know what this Country has done to it’s very own citizens.
The wealthy complain that in 2010 their tax breaks expire and they will have to pay higher taxes, the poor just don’t have much or any to pay, as many of them do work for cash only, most of them get State benefits. Unfortunately, unless you understand the working of State Government, telling the truth will get you absolutely turned down for help. Their motto, what you lied about we won’t ask about”.
Ahhh! then there is the middle class. What happens now that so many middle class Americans have lost their jobs, homes, vehicles and can’t buy food for their children, let alone support the Government. So what about the middle class children?, to the arrogant adults they are inconsequential because they are not making money and paying taxes, unfortunately for them, those children are our future and their opportunities are vanishing. Many of those children will never be able to go to College. On the other hand many States have limited children from going to College just because of standardized testing that teachers just failed to teach in elementary education, and the lack of student loans these days. Yet Government blames the mass majority of students for not applying themselves. I think that falls under “blame the children not the adults teaching them act.”
Selfishness, Greed and Stupidity has brought this Country to their knees. Stand Up for Heaven Sake and take back what you have worked your whole life to accomplish. This Country was founded off “WE THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE” NOT “WE THE GOVERNMENT”.
How Many People Live in the United States? It seems to be the question of this New Century. Our own Government won’t give an exact figure because they don’t care to check with the IRS and Social Security.
How many of those citizens are legal? You know, those non citizens, that are collecting benefits from States who just don’t give a rats ass about checking their background.
Lets narrow this down. The amount of illegals living here is roughly 20 to 37 million. Some of these people aren’t paying taxes yet getting food stamps, medical benefits, and their children are allowed to attend public school, in which, many classes are taught in bi-lingual (English-Spanish) languages. This language barrier does create problems for American born children, who speak English, that loose focus on the class while waiting for the illegals to get their class in Spanish. I have 2 children that have put up with this in public school. The Government wants these American Kids to be our future Presidents?
Another question arises. How many French, German, Bosnian, Chinese and a multitude of other nations, who have their children in public schools, in this Country that get their teachings in their languages. Maybe the French Quarter in New Orleans or the Chinese in San Francisco.
The point is, this Country, speaks American English. Not British English, not Spanish or Spanglish, not French or Chinese.
Another problem has now arisen in this Country. The Federal Government wants to pay out 700 billion dollars to bail out the Financial Institutions. 700 BILLION DOLLARS, yet there is roughly 296 million People to 320 million people who live here. Would it not make more sense to give everyone who legally lives here some of that money to spend to stimulate the economy, pay their debt, buy food, get medical insurance, pay for gas and have a home to live in? You know the now low life American Citizens who actually support this Country. Even if they just paid the American Born adults who file taxes half that amount this Country would be better off stimulating our very own Economy than the Jackasses in Washington who allow plenty of Special Interest Money that serves no purpose to the majority of the American People.
AMERICANS, we are the ones paying this BAILOUT. The money in this Country comes out of your pocket. The Government doesn’t doesn’t have money, the Middle Class supports this Country.
How many of you have had their phone lines tapped? I have, because I speak my mind. I always thought, before this incident, that I was entitled to FREEDOM OF SPEECH. Stupid me for not giving my attention to something I took for granted.
WE THE PEOPLE CAN’T SAVE OURSELVES UNTIL WE SAVE OUR GOVERNMENT, which is pretty sad that the Doctrine we now live under has taken away our FREEDOM as citizens.
It’s time to take a stand as Americans, whose benefits, benefit the illegal aliens. I realize this Country is made up of Immigrants, but our families of the past became Citizens through proper Channels. Amnesty of illegal aliens isn’t going to fix the problem. It didn’t in the past and it won’t work now to save the Asses for our very own Government.
Unfortunately, we have now become the questionable laughing stock of the World.
IT’S TIME TO VOTE THEM ALL OUT OF OFFICE AND BAN LOBBYISTS.
To the lot of you that have pets roaming your household, you are animal lovers. I am no different than other animal lover people, however, when you have a 14 year old child who thinks we should own every animal on the planet, it can get a little pricey in a bad economy. What those children don’t understand, when those pets we love so much get sick it can cost as much as a human that gets sick who doesn’t have medical insurance. There are States that have pet insurance, but sometimes it cost more than Human Insurance. If you can’t afford Human Insurance, then you definitely can’t afford Pet Insurance.
I’m not blaming this all on my daughter, I am just as guilty as she is, allowing myself to bring in rescue animals. Every single animal I now have has been rescued, except for one 17 year old cat that my veterinarian gave me as a wedding gift. How can you say no to a wedding gift gracefully, even though I tried with 3 other cats I already had? That doesn’t mention the 3 parakeets that other people caught and didn’t know what to do with, but singled me out, when they didn’t know anything about birds. I didn’t see bird specialist written on me anywhere, but I learned fast about birds.
What I have left is 2 tiger cat sisters that my kids and a neighbor child, that broke into an abandon house and rescued, without asking an adult prior to their burglary. (NO charges were pressed) I hate when they don’t consult a parent and just do what they want. However, the kittens they brought home are good kitties, though, each of them looks like one of my children and they bonded with the one they look like.
Through all of this, my daughter has brought home, hamsters, rats, and a guinea pig. I will leave the 20 gallon fish tank out of this, that is now empty, that she left me to take care of for 4 years. It’s up for sale at the moment.
As the story goes I ended up rescuing a 4 month old Ridgeback dog, which the owner insisted I take her Pit Bull Puppy as well. Not knowing the background of the Pit Bull and having young children I just had to refuse. I had a next door neighbor’s Pit Bull attack another neighbors German Shepherd in my front yard. The Pit Bull tried to jump my fence as puppy when my very young children were in the backyard playing.
However, my new Ridgeback, that I was told by a Vet, was a German Shepherd mix, which wasn’t anything other than a full blooded Ridgeback after a thorough investigation with an expert. She’s an awesome dog. She has had her moments potty training as a puppy (I have tile floors, which didn’t bother me at all, but I put in a doggy door that took her less than day to use) with her wanting dominance over her family. That doesn’t even mention her health problems she has had. I think it’s those health problems from a pure bred dog that gets to me the most.
Right after her first birthday the protective Ridgeback, of her children, was barking at someone walking down the alley. That person in the alley threw a piece of wood, that had a nail in it, into my backyard. Unfortunately my dog stepped on that nail cutting her foot while she trying to protect her property and “her family” which caused her to get tetanus. She lost the muscles in her head, but was put on meds and recovered. Everything was fine, until my cousin, who worked for the Humane Society called to tell me they were putting 2 six week old puppies down because they were over crowded and had no place for them. I was irate over it. I wanted to take both of them, but the Humane Society wouldn’t let me, so I had a verbal out loud tantrum, which prompted a man, who is now my friend, to take the other puppy. They were both males and had been neglected, fed with scrapes of food from the table and had other health issues I had to pay for meds to fix on the one I took.
The people who originally owned them turned them lose on a busy street at six weeks old. A woman almost hit both of them in her car. She stopped her car and ended up taking them to the Humane Society, that was already over-crowded. Those puppies are now 2 years old and healthy and happy with their owners. They have become family members.
The point of this post is to make others aware of the fact that taking on any animal can and will cost you money that you don’t have, those animals become your children, while you have them. They need love and give love, they need affection and give affection, they also need to be financially supported, just like Human Children, because they are also your children.
If you have to leave your home because of weather, don’t leave your animals behind. You are their best friend and only family.
I’ve been through trials with everyone of my animals. I am thankful that my teenagers take on the responsibility of covering for me when I’m not home.
If you love your animals as you would your own children, then you need to beware of underground rodents that dig up your property. Those rodents carry bacteria and other diseases, that should your pet try to kill or kill can do more harm to them than you can imagine.
My 4 year old Ridgeback, protector of her family, could no longer stand the gofers digging in her backyard so she dug the gofer out of the ground and killed it, then left it in my daughters room as a gift. My bubble-headed daughter didn’t get it. Unfortunately my Ridgeback got a bacteria and has been on 5 medicines for the last 3 months. It’s just as hard to see your pet suffer as you would your own child, if you really love your animals.
It’s also hard to make your other animals understand, especially another canine who thinks of the older one as a parent.
My Ridgeback is better, but not fully recovered, as of yet.
If you love your animals as much as you love your own kids please watch them and protect them as if they are your children. They are actually smarter than your kids. Humans need to pay more attention to with what is going on around them, their children, and their animals.
If you don’t love your animals as you would your own kids then you don’t need to have animals.
I rarely publish e-mails, but since everyone is up in arms over this Presidential Election I figured you needed food for thought, as the majority struggle and people just can’t think REALLY BIG these days after living under George Bushes Government for the last 8 years.
This came to me from a friend of mine in the News Media.
“How many zeros in a billion?
The next time you hear a politician use the
word ‘billion’ in a casual manner, think about
whether you want the ‘politicians’ spending
YOUR tax money.
A billion is a difficult number to comprehend,
but one advertising agency did a good job of
putting that figure into some perspective in
one of it’s releases.
A billion seconds ago it was 1959.
A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.
A billion hours ago our ancestors were
living in the Stone Age.
A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.
A billion dollars ago was only
8 hours and 20 minutes,
at the rate our government
is spending it.
While this thought is still fresh in our brain…
let’s take a look at New Orleans …
It’s amazing what you can learn with some simple division.
Mary Landrieu (D)
is presently asking Congress for
250 BILLION DOLLARS
to rebuild New Orleans . Interesting number…
what does it mean?
Well… if you are one of the 484,674 residents of New Orleans
(every man, woman, and child)
you each get $516,528.
Or… if you have one of the 188,251 homes in
New Orleans , your home gets $1,329,787.
Or… if you are a family of four…
your family gets $2,066,012.

IT’S TIME TO CHANGE ALL OF WASHINGTON, D.C. and question Mary Landrieu (D) on her request for 250 Billion Dollars.
The last time I visited Stonehenge on the Salisbury Plain in England, Archeologists had “petitioned” the Government to study Stonehenge. Of course, there is always fight and it took a long time for the Government to agree to terms on allowing it to happen.
Finally, for those of you who have waited, it has been done and there is now a program on the National Geographic Channel called “Stonehenge Decoded”.
For those of you who can’t get the National Geographic Channel and are interested, Archeoligists were finally allowed to excavate the surrounding area to try to understand why Stonehenge was actually built. At this point they can’t pinpoint a time frame on how long it actually took to complete the movement of the Sarsen Stones from 25 miles away and put them in place or the exact tribes of that region in that beginning time frame Stonehenge was being built, however, they have concluded that the ancient tribes in that area built Stonehenge, not as monument, but for a ritual act of viewing the Summer and Winter Solstice. Those Tribes were Engineers.
There was more than one “Henge”, other than Stonehenge completed in that area. The Sarsen Stones that exist today were to view the Summer Solstice, however, the other “Henge” was built out of wood a few miles away that was used to view the Winter Solstice.
The difference in the two different materials used were on done purpose. The “Henges” were built for a Spiritual Ritual not only to honor life, but death as well. There were homes (a community) of those that traveled to live in that area during the two Solstice Events and many feasts accured leaving many bones and few personal treasures behind.
They did discover that an unknown tribe (possibly Egyptian) ventured upon them teaching them how to melt metals and make a casting in a stone to create adornments and arrow heads. They also found an ancient body with wounds from arrows.
The wooden Henge was built to represent human life. A life that gets old and finally dies. It viewed the Winter Solstice, as the harsh winter bringing life to a death or a dormant condition, which was a belief of many other tribes across Europe. Stonehenge was built to honor the dead and their strength of life after death.
There is much similarity in their ancient belief as there is today. It also gave a new meaning to the practice of the American Indians of the past, also speculated to have ties with the ancient Egyptians.
If your interested in ancient History and Stonehenge, it is definitely a program you don’t want to miss.
I wrote this post a couple of months ago for Psychic Reader Lucky7Star when he wanted me to do a piece on Global Warming for his Psychic News Companion Blog on WordPress. I have had quite a few people ask me to post it here as they would like to leave comments, but are not WordPress or Yahoo subscribers (Posted on my yahoo blog), who might have to be logged in to leave a comment.
This is a critical issue for not just the survival of Arctic Animals, but the survival of plants , that supplies some of your crucial medicine, and trees that clean your air, not to leave out the the food chain, and humans. Everything is balanced by each other and here for a reason. We have no place to go when the Earth’s Ice melts and the lands become extinct.
Is tearing down the Rainforest and the incompetence of the Oil Companies worth the loss of Our Planet?
When the Pope acknowledges aliens, something is definitely amiss with Our Societies and Industrial Age we humans just don’t want to seem to let go of just yet.
Here is an interesting piece by one of the guest writers from Doctor Buzzard’s Medicine Show… A Psychic Reading within a reading.
The Celtic Princess © April 13th, 2008 (Updated 2009 from original posting)
As we watch the Polar Ice Caps melt and the sea levels rising, we continue to read articles and listen to the news about Global Warming and somehow think it isn’t as bad as everyone makes it out to be and we humans are not really responsible, because it’s just the News Media, who makes everything out to be worse than it really is. Unfortunately, the News Media DOES NOT make it DRAMATIC Enough. If they would spend more time on the disastrous effects Global Warming is having on this planet Right this Minute, and a whole lot less time babbling, speculating and bantering on the candidates running for President in United States, things could change. Fortunately the News Media has the power to influence the masses of people on this planet, unfortunately they have become nothing more than a self interest group making and breaking people across this Planet as they deem fit.
This Planet has given us all we need to make it function properly. There is an abundance of Energy on this planet and throughout the Universe that spins in Cycles. History and technology have proven these spinning cycles throughout the Universe and on this planet itself, yet we seem to be ignoring the fact that our ice caps are breaking up and as they melt and move through the seas, water will begin to rise along coastal lines across the planet. Seers such as Edgar Cayce warned this planet of the rising waters back in 1941. It wasn’t taken seriously by any Government on this planet back then, yet we are now seeing the effect of melting ice caps and rising water.
Have you ever wondered why the Universes are round, our solar system is round, our planets are round and rainbows are arced (rounded). We would not have cloth today with out the spinning windmill that converted raw fiber into cloth. All of these things spin and are created out of the pull of electro-magnetic energy. Ancient tribes built monuments immolating the importance of this figure and the energy it creates. Stonehenge is major example of ancient people’s knowledge of how important this round shape really is to our energy on this planet itself.
Is it to late to change this progression of Global Warming on Earth, possibly, however, “WE”, all people on this planet can slow it down by reducing green house gas and implementing solar, wind, and water (in a Hydrogen mixture) that creates ionization producing water vapor instead of carbon monoxide. Planting shrubs, grass and trees helps to eliminate a lot of carbon monoxide from our air. At least we can prolong and possibly prevent millions of lives and lands of being lost as water levels begin to rise in magnitude portions flooding much of the Earth.
In the mean time, it’s time the News Media takes some responsibility on helping to educate the masses across the planet, without bias, the leaders in every Country need to take heed in helping reduce the affects of Global Warming.’
The Industrial Age is ending and slowly, the New Age of GREEN will take over if we all do our part. Get involved to save your Planet. It’s the only place you have to live.
l, like everyone, have things going on in their life, but I seem to always have more things happening than most, of course, because I was taught as a child to pay attention to everything going on around me. I am not going to discuss in detail, the psychic ability of Clairaudience. (Psychic ability to hear) That would be up to everyone else to decide their path in this life time. However, I have been prompted by my deceased grandmother, for whatever her reason, to discuss Child Abuse. Right now my grandmother is pushing me to bring this up again, since my post on “Save the Children”.
This started on her, “living, birthday” on April,22, 2008. She was born on April 22, 1907. The following excerpt comes from the internet, I suppose to prove a point on her part. Her name was Opal Davis. She is in the National Archives in Washington for her work, along with Kitty Baldwin who founded the Arizona Blood Bank in 1943.
She, also, was an extreme advocate and volunteer of the Child Crisis Nursery and Hotline, in Arizona and worked the Child Crisis Hotline for many years. If you happened to call her while she was working the Hotline she would cut you off, as their was no Caller ID at that time. Oddly, she mostly got calls from “parents” whose children were abusing them, which was the lack of parent discipline and rules for their children that they could follow through with every day.
Sometimes parents just don’t know when to say NO and mean it or follow through with it when their kid is totally out of control. As a parent with kids, you have to follow through with the rules, but NEVER make the rules on your part abusive or out of line. Set limits and stick to them.
My Grandmother was raised in the Ancient Celtic Spiritualism, but became a Christian after her youngest sister died from Scarlet Fever at 9 years old. Then following that path, an Ordained Minister in 1973. She used both worlds of religion and spiritualism to get her point across. She even had me go to the Crisis Nursery to hold, coddle, and rub the babies backs and tummies to sooth them when they were crying, which oddly led me into learning and teaching sign language and lip reading to deaf pre-school children, when I was in College, whose parents were at a loss on communication skills with their disabled child.
I am thankful for those teachings because it has prepared me for my youngest child, that I swear is from the planet Zoldor and unlike anyone else I have encountered in all of my years on this planet.
Sixty Five years ago… (From the Internet)
“In 1943, wartime canteen volunteers Katherine (Kitty) Baldwin and Opal Davis founded Blood Systems”, (in Arizona.)
These two women, exhibiting an unusual blend of pragmatism, ingenuity and foresight, recognized the need for blood among soldiers at war and a concurrent need for a dependable supply of blood among hospitals in the Phoenix area.”
My Grandmother made damn sure I gave blood on a regular basis.
My point on this!!!!!! If you feel the need to take your frustration out on your child, DON’T. Check your Anger! Put a lock on your bedroom door, go to your room, lock it, punch a pillow and scream and shout into your pillow instead, then give yourself time to settle your anger and rationalize that you too were probably the product of your own parents abuse.
Worse case scenario seek help for your anger and/or find an outlet other than your kids for your anger. They are NOT responsible for your temper and lack of control over your emotions.
SAVE THE CHILDREN! We can never find a resolution for Global Warming on this planet, without the help of our children and future generations, that start with Love, Respect and Grace for our Children and Our Planet.
The mystery of North and South polarities.
There is a Universal harmony that extends out through time and space and conceals it’s mystery’s within our planet and each one of us on this planet. We are so synchronized within the perfection that most of us loose sight of our direction and just live day by day. My 73 year old aunt told me that she thought and thought about the meaning and reason of her life on this planet and couldn’t come up with one thing as to why she is here. The sad part is she was raised all her life with spiritualism, but has never applied it to herself or her life. It’s time to change the thought process within the world of the magnetic energy we live. Those that have lived in a daily routine of home and work are truly missing out on the mysteries and codes of their own life and its purpose.
One of the most fascinating mysteries is that of the North and South. The Northern Hemisphere has a stronger polarity (magnetic energy) than the Southern Hemisphere and work in opposite directions. Water, hurricanes and tornado’s spin in a clockwise motion in the Northern Hemisphere and a counter-clockwise motion the Southern Hemisphere. Astrologers correctly chart planets in a counter clockwise movement while the Ages move clockwise. There is a description in the Bible as Wheels within Wheels, allowing those to understand a concept of forward and reversed movement in our life. Most of us are taught these movements of the Hemisphere’s in school, but what we aren’t taught is that Universal Law, that the North will, has and does predominant over the South. When the North and the South are in opposition the North will always win or there will be a draw and no one wins. Consider the War between the States. The South lost that war that was doomed from the beginning, since our Capital was North of the conflict. Consider the thousands of Americans that died in South Korea and South Vietnam in a no win situation that was doomed from the beginning. Iraq is also north of our Capital, so it may not be a win win situation on the part of the U.S, but it will be a draw where both Countries agree to terms and the situation will neutralize.
However, if you live in the Southern Hemisphere and are in conflict with the Northern part of the Southern Hemisphere the Southern portion will win or it will end in a draw where no one wins. The closer you are to the magnetic Poles the more power you have over your opponent. If there is opposition between the Northern Hemisphere and the Southern Hemisphere the Northern Hemisphere will win, as it has a stronger magnetic energy.
Personally, my house faces North and South and when my teenagers get into an argument it is usually in one of their bedrooms or the hallway that faces North. For me to resolve the argument I have to call them into the living room South of their bedroom’s and stand North of them for the discussion or it will become out of control and becomes a no win settlement where everyone is mad.
The next time you have to confront someone make sure you know which way is North and try standing North of your opponent and see what happens. You just may be surprised.
If anyone has viewed the amazing photo’s from Nasa’s Space Gallery of Deep Space Galaxies, you will notice that Spiral Galaxies spin both clockwise and counterclockwise. There is also an interesting aspect when you view their Nebula pictures. Many of the Nebula formations look very similar to Angels with Wings, Human Faces, Wizards, Dragons, Devils and Evil Spirits. It kind of gives perspective to the Bible term “As Above, So Below.” As we view anything in space as above us. Oddly, the Ancient Celtic people built structures, like Stonehenge. Many other tribes built structures to view more than the Solstice’s in the sky, thousands of years ago, as well as the Egyptians, Inca’s and others on this planet. It kind of makes you wonder about the ancient cave drawings of UFO’s, Space Beings, Sun’s, Planet’s, and our modern day speculation and sightings of UFO’s, as well as many monoliths that are standing across the planet Earth today. It does not even begin to cover the Major Religions and their God’s and or Goddess’s. Are we alone in this Universe? Think about it, but put your prejudice aside, because it isn’t a debate of right or wrong or even religious. It’s more of a possibility vs impossibility.
I have always disliked getting involved in expounding over politics, because somewhere in the Presidential Elections this Country’s blood pressure goes up over the stupidity of some of these candidates, what they promise and never deliver once into office, with their undignified childish behavior for control of a Country they never seem to get a grip on, or sticking to the Constitution of the United States, especially when, that statement in the Constitution that says “BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE”! Unfortunately, “FOR THE PEOPLE”, seems to have been turned around to mean for the PRESIDENT, CONGRESS AND THE SENATE and how they benefit on their special interest of what they deem important, that has absolutely nothing to do with the citizens needs, who are paying for it, unless those citizens are sent into battle to die for our Freedom so their families can be harassed by the IRS.
The PEOPLE in this Country, for some reason, have been excluded from the Constitution at this point. You know, those low life American born creatures that work their ass off, who pay boo coo taxes, that can’t feed their children, pay their mortgage, utilities or get health insurance.
The best part is all the Devout Christians who are waiting for the Messiah to come out of the clouds and save us all. Their gonna be really surprised when it turns out to be Thomas Jefferson, John Hancock, John Adams and most notably, my favortite person of that time Benjamin Franklin, all carrying a big stick to smack the American Government right up the side of the head. It doesn’t really matter to me what your religion is, your ethic background or whether you think your Queen Victoria, when you don’t even come close, as the candidates are not only acting undignified, they lack a whole lot of GRACE in their actions, which certainly doesn’t show your “FOR THE PEOPLE” only your policies that benefit your minority and your interest. Talk is cheap and as long as these candidates have been in politics you would think they could come up with something better than bantering over mistakes of the past that every Human on this Planet has made and overcome or not, by the actions of their words.
I am proud and thankful to be middle-aged raising two teenagers, as an only parent, my children’s father died 3 years ago. I was told I would never have children because of a lower back injury. My children were my blessing from Above. As for his death, I have the illegal drug runners to thank for that, NOT. Giving Amnesty to the 12 million illegals in this Country is not except-able to me. I eventually lost my job because of the last Amnesty. The person that took my job, couldn’t speak English very well and can’t pass a State Exam to Teach in Technical School, because she can’t read English, but she can keep trying and trying forever…………………… on the other hand she is cheap labor in a profession I have worked in for 28 years.
I am a Republican and not unsure about it because every Democratic President and Governor of my State has done nothing but tax me to death since I started voting at 18 years old. I’m not that stupid, as a very white female, whose very first lesson in life was to pay attention to her surroundings and everything going on in those surroundings. Although, every American right now just looks at a lazy ass President, including the Republicans, who gets his paycheck for screwing up our lives.
The present Democratic Governor of my State, you my have heard of her, Janet Napolitano, over spent Arizona’s budget by a million dollars in 2007. Of course, that isn’t mentioned on her website, as that website, like many other politicians websites, portray them as being perfect. NOT!!!!! The only State surplus of money, came from the profession I am in, and she took the funds to balance the State’s budget before the year ended. Unfortunately, it has left State licensed technical school teachers out of a job. That’s not to mention the ignorant and lazy teachers, who are in a classroom teaching in public school. The best, is those teachers in elementary education that have absolutely no problem swearing at students as a means of control, and their teaching what? I can grant you that RESPECT isn’t being taught in public school in Arizona. I have two teens in public education and have two teachers trying to kiss my butt to keep me from reporting verbal abuse to the kids they are teaching.
From my personal view point as who should be President, this is how I view it, WE THE PEOPLE of this Planet are all ONE RACE, the HUMAN RACE, regardless of your ethnic background, religion, creed or otherwise. There is nothing else on this Planet that comes close to our mind set. Animals live on instinct that we sometimes, as humans, forget as the highest developed animal of all. We are not always right and we are not always wrong, but if you are going to run our lives you really must develop a logic that includes everyone, not just Your majority.
Middle Class Americans suffer from financial burdens the most in this Country and always have. The poor get benefits, the rich get major tax relief.
The last thing I ever want to deal with in my life as a Middle Class American is watching my children being forced to register for “THE DRAFT” to end up being sent to a useless WAR to die. The war in Iraq isn’t over until all Americans are home and we have no need to be concerned about the fate of our loved ones in battle. However, I still have the right to bear arms, for now, and should there be a personal attack in this Country on my turf, I would fight to the death to defend it, as would my children and my neighbors.
I have a Christmas Story to share with you.
My kids have these 2 brat dogs that listen to me, not them. When the oldest one, who is a Ridgeback (she’s now 3) was little, she learned from me what my son’s name was. She knows him by name. She also learned my daughters name. My son thought it was funny, so he taught her to acknowledge me as GRANDma. When she would get in trouble by the kids I would say to her “Is GRANDma’s GRANDpuppy getting in trouble?” She would come over and get up in my lap to tattle on them. She was a lot smaller then. Now she’s a very large dog. She’s golden and if her tale was docked and she had white spots on her backside she could pass for a baby deer. The other brat dog is a Chow Chow that is black and tan. He’s half the size of the Ridgeback. He’s 1 and also knows me as GRANDma, yet feels it necessary to sleep with me. He’s kind of a scaredy cat for the most part and always looks at me to see if it’s okay.
These two dogs start jawing, that dogs do in play, in the house. Everyday I have to send them outside at least 4 or 5 times to play. Of course, they have a doggy door. That would be my kitchen door that goes out into the backyard. I actually had to replace the kitchen door last year, that was a wood door that my Ridgeback and Chow split in half as they both tried to go out the doggy door it at the same time. I now have a metal door that looks like wood.
I sent them outside tonight for the umteenth time to play. It’s the Moon. They kept knocking into the Christmas Tree and crushing anything in their path. After they went outside, a few minutes later I got up to go into the kitchen and both of those dogs came through that doggy door 80 miles an hour and my Ridgeback ran into me knocking me down in the kitchen floor. It kind of gave a new meaning to the song “Grandma got run over by a Reindeer.” I can actually say I have experienced it first hand. I hate when that happens.
All to many times we take the good things that come to us for granted and curse those we blame for the bad things that happen to us. We worry over the obstacles that are presented to us and panic when we can’t influence a change for ourselves. Friends, family and lovers try to help in their mind set opinion of what we should do and it’s comforting to us they care enough to share their thoughts, but sometimes we just know that we need to come to terms with our changing life and overcome our situations on our own. We encounter people and situations we love and people and situations we just find useless or annoying. Take heart you are growing up spiritually when you handle that change in a calm rational manner and you will find new doors opening for you. It may not be overnight and for most people, patience is not their virtue, but you, like everything else on this planet are special for withstanding the test of time.
Give thanks if you are spending the American Thanksgiving with family and appreciate them and love them for what they are, good or bad. Give thanks if you have loving friends that asked you to eat with them when you had no where to go. Give thanks to the people you have encountered that made you feel awful, but taught you a valuable lesson you don’t want to admit to. Give thanks you have more than the homeless who are spending their Thanksgiving on the street and in food banks that have nothing more than the clothes on their back. If you are actually reading this, give thanks that you have access to a computer because there are a whole lot of people who don’t have this luxury.
This Thanksgiving I am so thankful I have a dysfunctional family that argues and banters constantly, but is always there when you need them. I am thankful I have two obnoxious selfish teenagers with an attitude that will never overpower mine even though they try really hard. I am thankful for my home, even if it’s broken, my neighbors I grew up with and some I didn’t, because we watch out for each other. I am thankful, for having to cook the entire Thanksgiving Dinner for my family, because we had the money to buy food, that my dogs and cats have not stolen for themselves, although they are waiting for an opportunity. I am really thankful for having my friends and family in my life to kick my butt, make me think, and go to the path beyond;)
Accept yourself for who you are and accept others for who they are. You may disagree with them and they may annoy you, but you probably affect them in the same way.
Be thankful if you have food on your table, others won’t, be thankful you have a place to live, others don’t, be thankful if you are working, others are not, be thankful if your health is good or you can afford medicine if it’s not, because others are not well and can’t afford medicine.
And if you can help others just do it.
Have a wonderful and Happy Thanksgiving.
Love and Light to All
Have you ever watched that show on NBC on Wednesday night @7:00p.m. called” Phenomenon” with Uri Geller? My son has become obsessed with it. I understand Psychic Energy and it’s movement, but after my son made me watch this 2 hour program for Halloween, I came away with the impression that Uri Geller and Criss Angel are illusionists, and I am not discounting their psychic ability, however it is overstated for the almighty dollar. They really are not any more powerful than Harry Houdini, who died from his very own stupidity. They have a website @ “NBC.com Phenomenon”. I just really don’t like the influence of this on my son or daughter and the general population, which is unknowingly getting drawn into this type of entertainment. Entertainment goes so far until it becomes life threatening to immature and unknowing people. I know it’s me, but I never wanted either one of my kids living in the psychic world that the public controlled. That kind of power needs to be personally taught by someone who knows how to use it .Okay, so my kids know I have it, which is why I don’t want to use it publicly, and my sometimes out of control fire nature forces me to use it in front of them and then I regret it, knowing they are watching and learning from everything I do. Both of my kids have psychic ability, but neither one of them are focused enough yet, as teenagers, to utilize it in a positive manner.I’m just agitated over this program that I know is having an adverse effect on people who really don’t have a clue, which includes the teenage and bored adult population. Paying Raven to be on this Halloween show to influence others was just really out of line. She’s not a Psychic, she’s a T.V. Character from “That’s so Raven” acting a part on having psychic ability.Psychic Power is a Real Gift from the Spiritual Force in your essence not a program on Prime Time T.V. Illusions are fun to watch, but they are not Reality and immature people imitating them are suspect for disaster . Don’t fall into an Illusionary Trap.
http://moreoldfortyfives.com/TakeMeBackToTheSixties.htmNothing like going retro through the sixties, especially if you lived through them.However, I certainly don’t miss the fuzzy black and white T.V, and the 2 day train ride on All 3 channels every time a President died and I just happened to be home sick from school.In fact, I don’t miss driving that 1963 Chevy 2 that had no air-conditioning, power breaks, power steering or seat belts. I don’t ever have to see or talk to the snotty-uppity bitches Kay Thompson and Cindy Levison, who thought their shit didn’t stink. I don’t ever have to have Jimmy Colburn tie my shoe strings to the bottom of his desk chair during 6th grade math because he had a crush on me, that pissed my math teacher off. I don’t ever have to be called Chriss Herndon by stupid teachers that had my brother Chriss in class before me and Melvin Herndon who always seemed to be in the sameclass as me. It didn’t matter that I told them my name was Kimberley Hendon, they still called me Chriss Herndon.I don’t ever have to out run Steve Bennett , the fastest runner in the whole school, after his friend Chuck House threw a dirt clod at me, for no reason and hit me in the ankle that I had the artery severed in. Trying not to faint and finding that moment of just being totally pissed off, I picked the dirt clod up and threw it hitting Chuck House in the head. I almost put his eye out. Well, of course, I was sent to the Principals office where the School nurse, Mrs. Birmingham reprimanded me and the Principal, Mr. Townsend, informed me the male P.E. Coach, Mr. Armstrong was going to give me 3 swats. Hmmmm! Celtic Princess’s don’t get swats, especially from men. I informed him he “better” contact my father before he did that. I heard a whole lot of “Yes Sir” from the Principal in talking to my father. I was sent back to class and Chuck House was sent to the Principal.I don’t ever have to go through Dana Osborn, at 11 years old, who lived across the alley from me, tell me if she ever kissed anybody on the mouth she hoped it would be me. Yes, she is still Gay and still lives across the alley from my mother and I don’t. Did I know what Gay was at 11 years old? NO, but I never kissed Dana. It gives me chills to think about it and I like boys way better than girls. My father called them “God Damn Queers” and hated Liberace that I don’t have to watch on The Ed Sullivan show in black and white ever again.I don’t have to wear bell bottom pants that get tangled around my ankles that make you fall flat on your face in the street when you are running from your cousin who is trying to kill you with a brick because he hurt himself with the brick and was mad. I don’t have to sleep on hard plastic rollers on Saturday night so I can look stupid for Church that my Great Grandfather didn’t want me attending.I don’t have to stand out in the heat for 2 hours because my brother Chriss locked me out of the house, then got me in trouble for not doing “my chores”. And I am really happy I don’t have to listen to “She Loves You, Ya,Ya,Ya” on the radio every 15 minutes.I never really cared who the one arm man was the Fugitive was looking for Or for Perry Mason, who is the only lawyer on the planet that won every court trial.And I don’t ever have to walk out on the driveway to my oldest Teenager brother and his grease monkey friends working their hot rods, that used my bike chain as a tire hoist, with that obnoxious smell of gunk in the air.The best part about going Retro is, it shows you where you’ve been and you are soooo happy you don’t ever have to repeat it again.
Here is a different way of learning Manifesting things that seems to be simple in the mind of an elderly woman, which is my almost 80 year old mother. This is how my mother has worked manifesting, unknowingly or accepting to her, since my father died over 4 1/2 years ago. Almost three years ago on December 31st, my mother came over to my house to eat and watch a movie. My Ridge-back dog was a puppy then, but still big. She loves company she knew and when I opened the door to let my mother in that dog pushed past me and jumped on her, knocking her down before I could stop her.
It took my mother several months after that to manifest the fear of falling. My mother wasn’t hurt in the fall, but she has spent her entire life being afraid of everything.Three months after her first fall, she calls me in a panic because she was standing at the counter in her kitchen, lost her balance for no reason and just fell to the floor and couldn’t get up. However, she has claimed all along she didn’t know how to use her cell phone, but conveniently had it positioned on the counter to where she could reach it, just so she could call me. I had to go over and pick her up off the floor and I do have a lower back injury that I try to ignore as much as possible. Funny she knew my son wasn’t home at the time.
I went out and bought my mother a cane, but she refused to use it. I offered to move in with her, but she wanted me to give my children and my personal belongings away. She hates children and didn’t want them in her house, which is why she didn’t raise her own children and she didn’t want anything I owned in her house. With her falling experience she had all these doctors run all these tests only to tell her it was all in her head and she needed to use her cane whether she liked it or not if she wanted to believe she had no balance. It’s a pretty purple cane with pink flowers, and when she started taking it to work, because the Doctor said so, she was so happy with all the attention she got over it.
Well, her way of manifesting things gets better. I have been extremely busy as of late. My oldest brother and his youngest son have been trying to help fill in the gap by doing all this work at her house, but it hasn’t been to her satisfaction, because “they won’t cook her meals”. They both have MS and my oldest brother’s is Progressive. They will go get her food, but she doesn’t want that and she doesn’t want me putting in long hours at work. Soooo, she decides to sit in her house, by herself, and take her blood pressure every 10 minutes. She finally got it up to stroke level, so she could call me and tell me she was having a stroke or heart attack and I needed to rush to her before she died. She lives a half of a mile down the street from me. Of course she had just seen the heart doctor and he told her she was fine.
I rush over there and call the paramedics who come and monitor her heart and blood pressure and they tell her she is having an anxiety attack, which is what I said to her before they showed up, but I’m stupid. I leave my son to stay with her the night, because I had to work in the morning, but she got up at 3:30 in the morning and yelled at him for having a light on in her den. I had to go get him because she wouldn’t quit screaming at him over a light. Then she wanted to know the next day why I picked him up and left her alone to die. (eye rolling)
Of course, she didn’t want me doing anything with my children over Labor Day weekend, so she had my brother take her to the hospital, because in her mind she was dying over her blood pressure. All her tests found was, anxiety, which led me to reprimand her in front of her Doctor and he agreed with me. The doctor told her he was going to her house and throw her blood pressure machine away that made her mad. The outcome of my visit to the hospital was my mother telling my daughter she needed to have her house vacuumed and dusted before she came home in the morning. She’s going to be really disappointed that it didn’t happen. See how that works.You just cannot demand of others, what you, yourself, are just not willing to do for you or anyone else.
YOU GOTTA KNOW I LOVE TO MAKE CORRECTIONS;)
Mars and Earth Converge
By Robert Roy Britt
Senior Science Writer

By the time you finish reading this sentence, you’ll be about 25 miles closer to Mars, according to NASA calculations.
Earth and Mars are converging, setting up a great skywatching opportunity for later this year.
Here’s what’s going on: Earth has the inside track as the two worlds orbit the sun. Inner planets orbit more quickly than outer planets because of the laws of gravity. Earth requires 365 days to go around the sun once, whereas a year on Mars is 687 Earth-days.
So every 26 months, Earth passes Mars on this orbital trek.
When the pass occurs, Earth and Mars are on the same side of the sun, as seen from above, with all three objects lined up in a row, and astronomers say Mars is at opposition.
As our planet catches the red planet, the distance between them shrinks dramatically. (It’s an opportune time for sending missions to Mars, such as the recently launched Phoenix Lander.)
Right now, the distance between the two worlds is shrinking at a rate of 22,000 mph, or about 25 miles per sentence, NASA figures.
By late September, Mars will be one of the brighter objects in the night sky. The closest approach will occur in December, when Mars will be brighter than every star in the sky.
You might have heard that Mars will outshine our moon on Aug. 27. Not true. That rumor is rooted in an annual email that has come to be known as the Mars Hoax, one of the many enduring, mistaken ideas about the red planet.
Each August, various versions of the email land in inboxes all around the world. The hoax can be traced back to a 2003 event, when Mars and Earth were closer than they’d been in thousands of years. (At the risk of further fueling the rumor, here is an account of the 2003 event.) But the proximity was an incremental improvement, in terms of viewing Mars, compared to the vast distance that always separates the two worlds. Never can Mars even approach the brightness of the moon in our sky.
Instead, Mars will remain, as always, no more than a point of light to the naked eye. It’ll grow steadily brighter through this autumn. And in modest backyard telescopes later this year, the red planet will be revealed as a ruddy disk, and sharp-eyed observers might spot some detail.
Mars currently rises around 3 a.m. local time in the eastern sky.
For those residents that live in the Valley of the Sun and the State of Arizona it became a very sad and tragic day for all. When you get up every morning and come home every evening to watch the days events on the news you expect to see the familiar faces and names of your favorite news channel. Today changed all of that when four well respected men in the news media died when one helicopters turned and suddenly collided into another hovering helicopter. The helicopters went down into Steele Park 9 miles directly down the street from where I live.Your Higher Power never does anything irrationally. The best way to think about this is God thought they were so Damn good at what they did He just had to take them to Heaven and make them Angels with Wings to Fly and watch over everybody else, take pictures and send reports to Him, otherwise all the children and the adults with them, that were in the park earlier would have been killed with that crash.The hearts of the entire State go out to the families of Scott Bowerbank, pilot, and Jim Cox, photographer/reporter from KTVK Channel 3, as well as, Craig Smith, pilot, and Rick Krolak, photographer, KNXV Channel 15, as well as, to all the News Media, Friends, Witnesses and Public that have been devastated by this event.
After the last month and the day I had today, then reading an e-mail from Lucky7Star today, I would have to say the Word of the Planet Earth right now is RESPECT. I think we ought to renew the song by Aretha Franklin titled “Respect”, and see if anyone on this Planet gets it yet, because I certainly am not seeing it.
Those of you who read this blog on a regular basis know that I teach in Technical School for adult education, however, I was off work for 10 1/2 months from a back injury and my daughter’s surgery on her lower leg, when she broke two bones completely in half and was in a cast for almost 3 months. When she could return to school I still couldn’t return to work because I had no one to take her to school or pick her up.
I have a love/hate relationship with those words of Summer Break. When I work, my teenagers stay home and fight with each other and call me on my cell phone all day long. This year I was relieved to return to work on Summer Break. However……………………………The Owner of the school called me in a panic. That should have been my first indication that I needed to retire from teaching. Technical School isn’t always about adult education, especially when it also serves the Public, as well as the High School Vocational Program from the High Schools full of 17 and 18 year old students looking for a career by the time they graduate High School. Students get 2 1/2 credits for High School attending Vocational Schools starting in the Summer prior to their Senior year.
Gee, how convenient for the Owner of the School to call me the day before my kids were leaving for 3 weeks to visit my brother in the South. All I was told was the Vo-tech Students had started, there were 40 of them and their Basics teacher had quit. That should have been my second indication, since she had been teaching the beginning Basics in that School for 7 years.
I just wanted to go back to work. I didn’t care about thinking why my employer was so dramatic that I return. Three days later I found out when a 17 year old female student with bleached blonde hair and pink braces started screaming at me over the fact that she had no intention of doing what was required and she would do what she pleased. She was only there for the credits for High School. Then 2 of her friends piped in to defend her and were screaming at me. Hmmm! Now I knew why the other teacher quit. I let it slide that day only because they were having to adjust to a new teacher. However, when it happened from the same 3 students the next day the only thing that was sliding, was down their eardrums when I pulled the MOM tone and let them have it over their “immature and disrespectful behavior”.
Those 3 backed off only to have 3 more start the same thing with me the next day. The MOM tone came again to the whole class of 40 teenagers on the lack of Respect and their total immaturity. Unfortunately, my 13 and almost 15 year old are more respectful than the entire 40 teenagers, that are 17 and 18 year olds, put together. If you have a teen be aware that they “click” in 3′s whether you know about the other 2 in your teens life or not. I have done nothing, but reprimand these students, just waiting for one parent to call and complain about how “their precious child was being treated”. I was so disappointed that not one parent called, until this week. A father wanted to come in and talk to me. I actually expected the worst, because parents always want to defend their child’s behavior because they think they have raised them right. However, this father that came in gave me written permission to hit his child as I saw necessary. I know I looked at him like he lost his mind. I don’t hit my own kids, how could I possibly hit someone else’s brat? I didn’t even know what to say to him other than I would do what was in my legal right.
In the 30 years I have taught in this profession I have never encountered a class full of teenagers who thought they had control of everyone. Today was the straw that broke the camels back. When I had 3 other teens take pictures of a client on their cell phones they are not allowed to even show in the school and laugh at him to his face and make fun of him (that’s illegal). This elderly man is disabled and started crying over the way he was treated in a school he has been coming to for years and has never had a problem with students, until today. I don’t like profanity on my blog, but I will tell you, I was f***ing pis*ed.Not so funny that when I walked into the classroom of 40 teenagers and without saying a word at that moment I had 3 teenagers Scream at me that whatever I heard was a lie, they didn’t do it.
What they never paid attention to over the whole incident, I was watching them while they did it, I just didn’t know who they were doing it to at that moment. The best part is, I have known this man for 18 years, and when he came out and saw me standing there, with tears in his eyes, he managed a slight smile and knew I would take care of it and I did. In the MEAN Mom tone I point blank told them I was contacting their High School Counselors and their non productive parents and they would be attending High School for 5 years to make-up for the credits they were going to lose when I terminated them. You really could have heard a pin drop in that classroom. I will bet any one of you, not one parent will call me to defend their total brat teenager. The best part of all of this was my 13 year old daughter who went to work with me today, who was appalled by what she was experiencing and didn’t understand why their parents didn’t care to do anything over how they were acting.
If you have teens, stop being afraid of them and lay the law down. YOU ARE THE PARENT. Just how do feel if your smart a*s teen rules their way of control into Government? For the rest of you that don’t really give a Rats A*s about RESPECTING others or this PLANET as a whole, well gee, the second word of the day is “GROW UP”! I have read the comments on my blog about others that just don’t get it. We all in this together, at this moment in our lives. Are all of you that afraid, self-centered and selfish that you care nothing about the future of your family and friends and how they act, and yet the Planet Earth’s Future? If I was that controlling as a teen, at this moment I would have a frame around my face that was implanted in a concrete wall. I admit there is Child Abuse and there is Child Discipline. Where do you as a parent stand or let alone “Adult” stand over your very own kids? As much as I hate to say this, “You can run, but you Can’t hide from your responsibilities as a Parent and let other’s take up that part because your lazy and don’t want to deal with it.” If you don’t want that responsibility, don’t have kids!!!!
For those of you that just don’t care about others on this Planet that are trying to make it a better place to live, get off the Internet and quit pretending to be something you are just never going to be, no matter what control you think you are going to get.
Today was the concert for Live Earth. Tens of millions of people participated and watched these concerts from around this entire planet. The controversy over whether Global Warming is a man made industrial problem or a natural occurrence of this planet will rage on for hundreds of years to come.Being raised by my die hard Celtic Great Grandparents and Grandparents I am going to give you the Lessons I learned about this planet as a child. I am translating from Breton, Welsh and Gaelic to English from my Great Grandparents notes:
“The main source of life on this planet comes from the planet itself. Humans do not always perceive the repercussions of their actions on others on an everyday basis, which disrupts the natural energy flow of life itself. To believe in the Spirit is to believe that the creation of all things living on this planet came from the Source for all living things. Depending on the Ages this Universe endures, this planet will experience rapid changes of control from one Age to the next. There will be Queens, Kings, Astronomers, Astrologers, Seers, Religions and Fanatics vying for control of the Life of others and a Planet they couldn’t possibly handle without destroying it in the end. The souls created through Energy from the Light, of what Humans perceive is Above. That Light surrounds the entire structures of the Solar Systems from the ground we stand on and far beyond our imaginations. Our souls become arrogant, self centered, self righteous and extremely greedy, but we do not create us as a single unit of ONE WITH THE CREATOR OF US until we move past the destruction of our very own Souls and except LOVE, meaning we have EVOLVED to the MUSIC OF THE SOUL.”
Written history provides the clue to our ancestors that took years to pass news from one town to another. By the time it reached small towns the information was obsolete, but people acted upon it and wars continued after the fact. Minstrels were hired by the Courts to move from one town to another to sing the news of the lands. Thank your Higher Power that we actually made progress as humans and Samuel Morse was born, who invented the telegraph in the 1800′s thousands of years later.
Music has an emotional effect on humans, (I could go on about the effect of Note Sounds to the human ears, but I won’t) and everyone who attended or watched Live Earth was probably moved by what they heard from their favorite artists that took the time to perform. Changing this Planet requires Your effort in changing yourself. Stop your Greed, Control and Madness. Live long and prosper from what you will accept in others and certainly what you will not accept in others or yourself.

If anyone in this Country is really interested in the politics of a Nation in which they are currently living, maybe you should get involved in what is currently going on around you in the United States and the next President to be voted into office in 2008. No, time like the present to get involved and continually remind this Country about Freedom of Speech, Religion, Thought, Press and Lord knows Open Opinions, we born or legal citizens, express on the Internet, without repercussions of a “higher authority” censors, behind our backs.
The following e-mail came to me from Lucky7Star, however, regardless of your opinion on his views and he and I do not always see eye to eye, you might want to think about the following post he sent me and tell me we are not being monitored personally by our very own Government:
“My site and others have been under attack because we dare to tell the truth… This address is one for the home office for the TSA. They are keeping a secret data base on the flying public. You as part of Keen are unknowing pawns in a much larger game. Nothing short of our freedoms as a free nation and the, I believe, very survival of ourspecies is at stake.

If you have a moment to share your thoughts or might have a chance to see for yourself. Go to the “PsychicNews Network” and if you like join the United Artist Psychic Readers Guild. That is all, xoxoxox.
Based on this e-mail Lucky can verify that I have told him that “his” websites in my Blogroll have been deleted off of MY Blog no less than 3 times in the last 9 months, without my permission or knowledge, until I personally realized otherwise. I have been secretly invaded by the attacks over the opinions of someone else, because I am publicly connected to them, however, I was born a Rebel for Truth, Justice and Fairness of all humans and Ecological Systems on this Planet and I will not stop until the Governments of this Planet stop. Every human on this Planet deserves the same respect, as well as the ecological system of survival. Do the citizen’s of this Planet really want destruction of this World, in our Solar System over Stupid Politics that the average human politicians present? The best part of the political debates in a new Presidency of this country is being based off of Religion over the belief of the Bible that 6000 years ago the Solar System and the planet Earth was created in 6 days and “We” are only 6000 years old when the push for Science and Technology with the U.S. Government in schools and other Countries has proven beyond a reasonable doubt this Solar System has been here for billions of years.
My 14 year old son, an Honor Student receiving a Presidential Award for his intelligence is appalled over what he is forced to learn about science and what the Politicians are saying. Whatever happened to Truth? Or is that word being deleted from Webster’s Dictionary?
- The magnetic field surrounding the planet Earth is not really something we notice or talk about on a daily basis. It is somewhat amazing how that magnetic energy influences the effect of the stones on this planet, as well as the magnetic attraction we have for other human Souls that cross our path during our lifetime. It can become most complicated in understanding all the dimensions of why, we humans do so many rituals of preparations to magnetize ourselves to attract others or why many Stones on this planet are used for different purposes. Diamonds, pearls, lodestones, greenstones, bluestones ( of Stonehenge and other sandstone monuments on the planet), birthstones, month stones and the list goes on.
This is an interesting quote from writer John Cowie, who was actually explaining Crop Circles in his article:
“In the UK, there are more than nine hundred stone circles. In England, a remarkable straight line has been traced from St Michael’s Mount in Cornwall through Glastonbury and Avebury to Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk, while another runs from the north to south from the major Arbor Low stone circle in Derbyshire through Avebury and Stonehenge. Both these lines miss absolute straightness by a few hundred yards at a few points and we should not be surprised that over the centuries some land movement such as the mid-Atlantic rift could account for these particular discrepancies. It also appears that these lines extend through Scotland into the Orkney Islands and south into Brittany (France) at a time when this was one land mass.”
Oddly, the Pyramids on this planet were made mostly from a stone created by humans, somewhat like concrete is made today, but back then the durability of their concrete is much more stable and many times longer lasting than our planet makes today.Their are a whole lot of reasons of why magnetic energy actually controls the thought process of the planet Earth and how we interact with one another. Witches, Warlocks, Shamans, Buddhists, Muslims, Jews, Christians and a variety of other religions have a Concept of Truth. However, in view of the spiral galaxies, circular planets, spinning storms on these planets as well as our own all created out of the pull of magnetic energy it isn’t surprising that the ancient tribes used this spinning motion to create these energy forces in their time.

Once again the United of States of America has come under attack, but this time it wasn’t the Middle East. Sadly, it was one of our own acting in a depraved act of violence. A gunman who has taken out 33 lives to date and injuring many others at Virginia Tech University.
Saving the Children just doesn’t seem to take precedence over global warming these days, as my mail carriers are being forced to walk to deliver mail because of the gas pollution the Government attributes to Global warming. Almost unbelievable as the summer months approach and the temperatures rise to the 110 to a 118 mark in the desert.
Neglect, abusive parents, and the Internet seem to be the major problem with parents that are not concerned over their children’s welfare and behavior, who seem to have better things to do than being concerned about what their children are doing, that just want to consider them adults, because it’s easy.
Both of my teens, watching the news story at Virginia Tech, told me that some of the Middle School kids, they go to school with, have commented on how easy it is to buy illegal drugs and guns off the Internet. Some of them are arrogant enough to admit they bought guns and their parents don’t know. The majority of the kids in Middle School, go to High School. If I was that stupid I would have laughed it off, but my next door neighbors sister has a 17 year old son who gets his pot, by the pound, off the Internet and unfortunately his parents supply his alcohol habit and think it’s funny their son does what he does. The sad part is they are extremely wealthy thur inheritance and both parents are alcoholics. What’s happening in this Country? Maybe major STRESS?
However, my late ex-husband and children’s father, who became psychotic after his addiction to alcohol and drugs, admitted after his last arrest for possessing a hand gun he bought easily through the Internet, to use to kill his kids and me and then commit suicide. He told my brother about this, who moved in with me over this deep fear he had. My ex’s motive for buying the gun, was to kill me, then my children, then himself, so nobody would be held responsible. My brother was horrified, but tried to protect me without letting me know. (my ex’s admission came during a 2 year period of being clean and sober and AA made him make amends to me, but my brother had already warned me prior to that). Not a very comforting conversation, when your life and your children’s life have been put on the line by someone who tried to the end to kill those he thought the most of in his life.
BTW, for those who haven’t read my posts on bi-polar disorder and save the children, my ex-husband commited suicide by hanging himself. This has forced me into being very strict with my children, whether they like it or not.
In honor and memory of those College students that innocently died today, my heart goes out to their families. This entire drama has affected my own teens, who are thinking about just staying at home and doing online High School and College.
Guess what America, when that becomes the norm for our society there will be no need of money spent to build Colleges and no need of Government loans, High Schools or even Elementary schools, eventually, which leads to no need of human inter-action between males and females.
Hmmmm! Single people pay higher taxes. Seems to me that this is all about money, which is pretty sad for the most Powerful Nation in the World. Wake up, Only Love is Real, and the U.S. Government has just become plain greedy.
As for me, I am a Republican, but I am voting for all of them to be removed from office. What has happened to the UNTIED STATES OF AMERICA?
George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin are all rolling over in their graves right now, however, I am still a Mom dealing with everyday issues all by myself.
In 1964 the Shangri-Las released a song, with this title, about young love, parental disapproval and death by a Harley Davidson. I was around 9 years old when that song was released, but my oldest brother, with his hot rod cars and motorcycle became a big part of my thought process when I decided to write this post. It wasn’t just my brother. In the last several days there has been a herd of Harley Riders going down my street everyday. Very unusual for my neighborhood.
Of course, I was taught to pay attention to everything going on around me, because there “might be a meaning to what you are seeing and hearing”. The thought of my ex-boyfriend, also crossed my mind, who drove a pick-up truck, but never hesitated to drag me to every Harley shop in this State. He ended up showing extreme and verbally abusive control issues, which ended our relationship 2 months after it started, (mostly centered around my daughter), however, it took me over a year to get him out of my life and away from me. I thought he would never quit stalking me. He went so far as to take a job at a store in the same business complex where I was teaching.
Unbeknown to Lucky7 Star at the time, my ex boyfriend was actually intimidated enough by Lucky’s thought process to leave me alone in the end. He even tried to manipulate my family against me. I ended up leaving that job, but my ex boyfriend, drove down my street not less than 6 times a day and tried to hang out with my neighbors so he could spy on me. (My neighbors finally ran him out of the neighborhood.)
Fortunately, this post has nothing to do with motorcycles. It does, however, have to do with my Dogs.
I have a 2 and a 1/2 year old Ridgeback. She is long legged, completely gold and looks like a deer. Her birthday is August 13th. She is extremely lovable.
Last year I was asked if I would rescue a 8 week old puppy, who was going to be to down, just because there are more dogs than dog owners. I already have a houseful of animals, but couldn’t fathom letting such a young dog be put to sleep. The Puppy is a Chow Chow. Oddly, both of my dogs have the same birth date. Fire Leo’s.
My older dog took him in as her own baby. She plays with him, coddles him and reprimands his behavior, but completely loves him. My next door neighbor’s niece brought over her new white Lab puppy her parents paid $3000.00 for, but both of my dogs accepted her and played with her, they are used to other dogs visiting. My, almost 8 month old puppy, was more her size and they are both still babies.
Control Issues??? Yes! My Ridgeback was completely ticked off that she was in my son’s room, with the door closed and my puppy was socializing with the puppy visiting from next door, who has been over many times. After the 8 week old puppy left, my puppy attacked my older dog, to the point that my son tried to stop it and was bit by my Ridgeback in the process. I was in my bedroom, heard the attack and came out, only to raise my voice at both dogs. They stopped immediately. I found out the next day that I was “The Leader of the Pack”. Suddenly, it dawned on me how to keep both of my dogs under control, which has kept them from attacking my cats every time they moved.
It’s funny, both of my brothers, called me at the same time, from 2 different parts of the country, to tell me the Dog Whisperer was on the National Geographic Channel. I spent the good part of an hour searching for the National Geographic Channel, (I don’t watch T.V.), only to find out that I am the Leader of the Pack, without the Testosterone and Harley’s.
Pay attention to what is going on around you. You just might figure out what you are not seeing right in front of you.
I have had several people I know in the psychic community, ask me if I know and can explain the term clairaugust, as they cannot find a meaning, but have heard that it exists. I am not a psychic dictionary, however, I do know the term and it’s meaning. My Great-Grandfather and old school “Celtic Lord” is responsible for that information.
Clairsentience, Clairvoyance, Clairaudience and Claircognizance are the popular 4 Clairs that most psychics and a few seekers wanting to know more, experience at certain points in their life. What this boils down too in layman terms, you have, sensing, (physically by tasting, mentally by accepting, psychically by knowing), seeing, (visions or precognitive dreams), hearing, (from spirits, guides, angels), knowing abilities, (from information you receive from spirits, guides and angels), that others are too afraid to use or accept. There are 5 different senses and logically there has to be 5 different “Clear” uses of those senses. The 5th sense of the human body is smell, called “Clairaugust”.
BTW, the word Claire (with a second word attached is dropped to Clair) which is the old Celtic French word for Clear. Today the French word for Clear is Espace libre.
The next time you smell something that isn’t there, keep in mind, that someone or something from the spirit world is trying to get your attention for a purpose.
These are just minimal examples, but angels smell like a faint scent of roses, those you truly loved in your life who have passed and come back to you in spirit, smell as you remembered them when they were alive, past life smells come in all forms that usually give you a vision and sense, you just can’t quite place or thoroughly see. You are attracted to people who made you happy in another life, but bring in distention in your present life, that you can’t understand.
Clairaugust is the extra sensory to “smell” things that aren’t always in sight. We may not understand why we smell certain things that aren’t there, but again, it comes from, spirits, guides, angels and loved ones that have passed, that you just can’t see because you are not utilizing all of your “Clear” abilities.
If your in a relationship, what really attracts you to that person? Chances are, it’s their smell.
My ancient past must be catching up with me. It took me a few days to realize who C.J. was, who left a comment on my last post on Vortex healing. How the heck he came across me after all these years can only be explained by Vortex Energy. Dang!!
I wrote a paper for an Ancient History class, in college, 33 years ago that talked about the Codes Of Life. I used lexigrams as an example in deciphering codes written by Royal Courts, who sent messengers to other, lower rulers, to let them know what the Higher King (or Ruler) wanted them to know about their decisions in running that Country against invaders. It was mostly based off of Less Brittany (now France) and Greater Britain (England, Wales and Scotland.)
In that time frame, English was not used as a common language. So to answer CJ’s question, lexigrams can be used in any language to achieve a purpose, even with primates called apes, who are smart enough to get their thoughts across on computers, to those handling them. If my dogs, cats, bird, guinea pig and fish had the ability to type, they would have their own language code to decipher their life and thoughts. Lexigrams are an Unique ability to be observed by those handling an important situation from the animal and human world.
However, when I clean the fish tank, those fish bump my arm to let me know they appreciate me feeding them, cleaning up after them and they perform their silly antics in the tank while I am standing there looking at them. My daughter’s guinea pig talks his talk when I go into her room and he waits to be petted, talked to and loved, because he loves to be coddled , held and petted. My female bird screams at the dogs, cats and anything she hears outside, since her male partner died, but she is docile when I put my hand into her cage, as if it has a calming affect on her. As for the snooty cats, they have no problem cuddling, rubbing, talking their talk and being slobs just to get food, a brushing and loving attention.
It’s the humans that can’t look beyond the everyday scenario of their life to find and see things that go beyond the “normal” path of existence.
Are we that bored as humans to make life so boring, we can’t see the forest for the trees?
The Codes of the Bible you might seek, will find you, but on the other hand, every letter of the alphabet is in the English version of the Bible. It would be an assumption that you and your life is not included in the English alphabet.
Deciphering lexigrams is done by taking a word and making new words out of the letters of that word. Peoples names can be re-written by the letters in their name to make new words and as you put the puzzle of your name together you just might be surprised what you will find out about the course of your life. I will give you a small example. I can spell my married last name out of letters from my first name. My entire maiden name, first, middle and last, reveals that my husband would die, which he did.
Don’t take any of this to heart and become obsessed with it, because you are unique and have a life path to complete, for good or bad, depending on your acceptance of what you have been offered in this life. You have been given free will to make necessary changes in your life.
Love and Light
In being raised my whole life with the statement of, “You are only given what you need, the rest is up to you.” I have come to learn in all my years that what you need has absolutely nothing to do with anything material. There is a code to your life and realizing that you are responsible for deciphering that code to move you on to total spiritual happiness within yourself where everything in your life falls into place without effort, including anything material.
I was born into my family for the lessons they taught me. What you are freely given as a child, whether it was a wash tub to bathe in because the cesspool backed up, an herb or plant from the garden when you skinned your knee or a hand full of flour and a sprinkle of water to make pie crust, you will find as an adult, situations will arise and you will need to utilize information that you came here with and what you have been taught through your life.
I was taught as a child, by my Great Grandfather and Celtic Lord, Vortex Healing. Although, when I was a child we called it in the Breton language, translated to English, because none of you speak Breton, “Spinning Wheels of Light.” It kind of goes back to that Wheels within Wheels concept through the Universe, spinning clockwise or counter-clockwise, which can be positive or negative, depending on your attitude or frame of mind. Vortex Healing originated over 5000 years ago through the Merlin Lineage. It is a process of moving energy in a spinning motion, (like a whirlpool, tornado or hurricane), into an injury, illness, disease or life issue, even if it is karmic based, and healing it. The Chinese brought to light spinning energy fields in the body called Chakras and as the Psychic Age of Aquarius was ushered in, so the ancient healing practices came with the New Age of Enlightenment.
My first experience of using Vortex Healing for something major was when I was 12 years old and compressed a disc in my neck during P.E. in school. My Great Grandparents had passed on and my Grandmother utilized the Vortex Healing with Angels that eliminated my pain. It wasn’t until I was an adult I found, after studying color effects in your life, that using different colors in the spinning energy had different healing effects. As little as 2 years ago in using this healing method when I became ill I questioned this pleasant smell I always got, but couldn’t quite place it. Out of the blue a Psychic friend of mine asked me if it was a slight scent of roses. That was the smell and the smell of Angels around me.
All of this comes, with the coincidence of age, that my 12 year old daughter suffering her first major accident when she fell on News Years Day and broke the her tibia and fibula bones in half, in her lower leg. She had to have major surgery and rods put into her leg. She received her first major lesson on using Vortex Healing with Angels. It isn’t hard to accomplish and within minutes my daughters pain subsided and a warm feeling came into her leg. She is now utilizing this healing every time she has to move her leg. It has also helped her to pinpoint a focus, which has caused her ADHD to subside. She has been given what she needs, at the moment, for her life issues.
As for that washtub from my childhood, it certainly has come in handy getting my daughter bathed and hair shampooed with a cast on her leg. And that plant from the garden would the Aloe plant that has diminished many sunburns in the desert and soothed the nerves in her skin around her cast. As for that flour and water mix, when my daughter is well and walking on her own I have promised to show her the fine art of mixing flour and water to make her favorite food called pasta.
Remember the things you learned growing up, whether good or bad, as they will help you decipher your own codes of your life.
I am wishing all of you the happiest of times in the New Year.
Make wise choices daily, even if you have to change your mind. Live a life that suits your needs, even if you lose others. Let go of the baggage you carry, even if you end up alone. Love everyone with all your heart, even if it hurts. Forgive, Let Go and move forward as the Heavens Love you and are with you in your wise decisions to grow Spiritually.
Love, Light and Happiness to All.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!
This isn’t something Dr. Phil would condone, but then again Dr. Phil isn’t an only parent and the “mother” of teenagers. Most of the time my teens act like heathens, (not that they were raised that way), but…., they really only annoy me when they start fighting with each other and I’m working, or on the phone or they have left 1000′s of dishes for me to do, after they have continually eaten all day. Unless fists start to fly between the 2 of them, I just don’t want to be in the middle of their arguments, (which have no meaning to begin with.) Sometimes I have to threaten them with being knock into another dimension. Usually it’s my daughter that gets in trouble because she never lets up until I charge into the room with a 5 gallon wooden paint paddle and threaten her with a foster home. Not that I would ever hit either one of them with the paddle, (maybe I should) nor send her to a foster home, (and she knows it), but it does make a point. I have, however, hit it on the wall before, which has gotten their attention. They both know when they have pushed me too far when I am reprimanding them in a language that is not English and always one of them interrupts me to ask me what a word I said 3 minutes prior means. I’m sure that is a ploy to throw me off track.
Both of my teens have been working very hard the last 3 months to make money for the Holiday, as they claim. The Holiday in my house is celebrated with the arrival of the Winter Solstice, on December 22nd when Nature becomes dormant to rest, and Santa Claus become active to give with his heart out of love and kindness. Yes Travis, we put up a tree, but it represents the life that continues to live in the harshest elements. Although, my kids don’t get that part yet, living in the desert. Harsh weather to them is dust storms, dry lightening and thunder, sometimes turning into thunderstorms, with flooding rain, in the summer months.
My son told his sister that “Mom” would buy presents from him to give to her. (Hmmmm) To bad he didn’t tell me that, because his heart would part of his anal retentive brain right now. I’m not sure about your teens, but my Taurus the Bull daughter was irate over her selfish, self centered brother’s attitude when she ask him for money to get me a present for the Holiday and he refused claiming his money was for college.
My kids aren’t suffering, because they aren’t the ones listening to themselves fight with each other. Being the outrageous and off the wall mother that I am, in defense of living alone with teenagers, revenge is mine in the end, over any self righteous and self centered attitude from any child I have. It just doesn’t cut it with me, in my house. I spent the better part of the day utilizing TAPE. For every 1 gift I got my selfish son, I got my daughter 2. For every gift I wrapped for my son, I used a half a roll of tape, just to agitate him when he tried to open those gifts. My kids open their gifts on Christmas Eve from family, but Santa Claus always leaves a major gift on Christmas morning. The only ones receiving a gift that morning with any meaning will be my daughter and me. My son wanted a new pair of shoes from some special sports company. He wears a size 14 shoe and I was NOT going to spend that kind of money on shoes, especially, the way he has acted lately. (Selfish hormones) So, I bought my daughter and me shoes that will be opened by us Christmas morning that Santa left and my son gets a bag of m&m’s, just because he agitated me with his attitude. BTW, my son thinks there really isn’t a Santa Claus, he just hasn’t gotten a clue how Santa can affect his life. I think he might have gotten some clue tonight after my 16 year old cat fell (my cat has arthritis in his back from getting rolled by a car when he was 2 that broke his lower back.) My cat fell off the computer table and got his claws caught in my computer chair. My dogs ran to his rescue, which terrified him more. I yelled for help from both of my kids to get the dogs, but the child cleaning her room, listening to music and the furthest away came, but my son claimed he heard nothing, 20 feet away from me and no noise going on in his room. Can you say anal retentive, without a sense of helping, even his own mother in need, but expecting everything from her. NOT in my house. He probably won’t speak to me for the next week, but I did let him have it in no uncertain terms. Sorry, but he pissed me off.
Through the midst of all of this nonsense with my teens, I have had 2 proposal of marriage. Bet you guys don’t want to marry me now knowing what I deal with on a daily basis. Will I ever admit there is no modern day Santa Claus to my children, NO! Without Faith in something greater than you really understand, you have and get nothing at all;) Your Higher Power works for you in ways you can comprehend, if you take the time to pay attention to what you are doing and what is going on in your life.
Before any one of you leaves feedback about true Christian teachings and what an awful mother I am, keep in mind, my Grandmother, who was raised in the Celtic Spiritualism, became a Christian Ordained Minister when I was 17 years old. I’ve lived in both worlds and have chosen the first, regardless of your Christian beliefs. What works for one doesn’t necessarily work for all and teenagers will always be the same until they become adults and have to face life for themselves.
With the release of Japan’s Sony and the almighty awaited new PlayStation 3, with blue ray, on November 17th and only 200,000 to be sold in the U.S. until the next shipment in December, has caused a lot of controversy, not only with Sony, but with the way this Country has acted over a piece of electronic equipment. Those distributors and sellers, who actually bought the PS3 for the wholesale price from Sony at around $500.00 and actually obtained the PS3′s to sell, jacked up the prices so far beyond the retail price that the average American couldn’t even afford to put it on their credit card, if anyone took a credit card, let alone pay cash. Stupid Average Working Class American’s shooting and killing others who had an electrical box called a PS3. Jeez, it couldn’t be our Government’s stupidity. After all our Government claims that the Middle East attacked us on 911, yet proven evidence shows otherwise.
I probably wouldn’t even bring this up if my grandfather and father had not been pioneering pilots in this Country. Although, my grandfather had passed before 911, my father had not. His very first comment after watching 2 planes fly through the Twins Towers and watching those Towers crumble to the ground, was “I don’t give a sh*t how much gasoline was in those planes. Where those planes went through those towers, it would Not have brought them both to the ground. Those towers were imploded from with in at the bottom and in the lower floors. It was a U.S. Government act looking for a reason to go to war in the Middle East over their almighty control on the Oil.”
Seems to me as a parent of teens that the Oil in the Middle East and the Blue Ray of Asia have a controlling factor over our American Society and how we interact with each other. I’m not sure about you, but I can almost bet that George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln are just about to roll over in their graves causing a major earthquake on the East Coast.
Manifesting that PS3 could have been taught to you by my 14 year old son. He wanted it so bad on the release date and was willing to use his savings account to get it, he actually got one for not more than the original price it will be sold for when it hits the stores full force next March. Not all Americans are rip off artists, but I am not so sure our U.S Government isn’t one of the biggest rip off artists on the planet and your kids are dying in a war that never should have happened over oil. Guess we seem to not have anymore intelligent people in this Country who cannot come up with a better plan for energy than oil and nuclear devastation. Where is the New Age Albert Einstein when you need him?
Maybe the U.S. Government needs to quit worrying about who the next President of Stupidity and Governemt will be and worry that this Country will still be here under control of honest Americans, wanting freedom from the control of the rest of the World. There seems to be a line drawn in the sand at this point, to Stand or Fall. I am kind of wondering which side of the line most Americans are standing on here as I don’t see anyone with enough guts to take on the challenge of a Country where they were born and raised. Are all of you that lazy that you just can’t get involved with how your tomorrow works out?
I would be willing to bet that if the Beer companies and Sports leagues got involved there would be a hell of a lot of participation from the citizens in this country.
I have had so many people wanting to know about “bi-polar disorder”, which is a polite way of saying manic-depression, that I decided to share what I dealt with, briefly to say the least. The disease should not be classified as a disorder, as it is a mental illness disease, inherited through genes and set off in adulthood. Not a lot was known about it for years, but as it has progressed through society and more studies have been done, as too many people who inherit this disease are rapidly becoming citizen’s of mental institutions and prisons.
Many parents do not ever want to admit that there is something wrong with their child. They see their behavior as obnoxious and punish them accordingly, but they certainly don’t understand the bigger picture.
A person who inherits this disease can lead a normal life for the most part, as long as they stay away from drugs, alcohol and anything that alters brain perception. The downfall of these people is addiction. Normally, as a child they are a little hyper and do things they shouldn’t or have been told that it’s wrong, but as they enter their teens and hormone changes they become depressed and seek something to make them feel better. Many teens turn to alcohol because they can get it from an older sibling or parent who doesn’t think to much about the effect it will have on their teen.
With the presents of available, illegal drugs, such as meth-amphetamines, more people are using that drug because it’s cheap, available and alters brain perception to make them feel better and more powerful over themselves. The problem with those born with this disease don’t really understand that the drugs and or alcohol abuse may not affect them mentally and physically until they are in their 30′s. It does eventually become apparent to those dealing with that person that something has changed within them and they are acting differently by lying, cheating, stealing, becoming distant and abusive and above all paranoid to normal things going on around them that they blew out of proportion and have fed themselves with unreal situations that really weren’t happening.
Personally, I have had several people in my life who were diagnosed as being bi-polar and a few who are bi-polar that just won’t admit there is something wrong with them. Of course, there is medication for this disease, if they take it, which many just don’t. The extreme of manic-depression leads those to obsess with suicide and or killing others because they have become paranoid and or schizophrenic.
After dealing with my ex-husband’s extreme bi-polar disease that eventually brought him to suicide it really hasn’t been that hard to recognize it in other people I deal with on a daily basis.
The sad part of all of this is my ex’s parents denied there was ever anything wrong in their family, yet his aunt died in a State Hospital from the the same disease. My ex-mother-in-law would never talk about any of it and hid all the facts from her children, because she was embarrassed over her husbands sister who had this disease. My ex-father-in-law Never talks about his past because he doesn’t want to deal with it or resolve it.
What goes around comes around because my ex-mother-in- law was the one who found her son hanging from the ceiling in her garage when she came home from work.
Don’t be stupid and deny the problems in your family history. Deal with it, accept it and help those who just can’t help themselves. Giving from your heart and helping others in need will make you a stronger and more loving person on this planet and it just may save your children from having to deal with ultimate drama that they shouldn’t have in their life. They deserve better. You brought them into this world, it’s your job to take care of them, regardless of the circumstances going on around you.
Just about everyone on this planet has heard me complain about a disorder called ADHD. There are millions of children diagnosed with this disorder for what ever their life purpose is to work things out in their brains. It is a very misunderstood disorder. What many parents are not told is it starts in early childhood but, starts to dissipates when that child enters adulthood, only to disappear completely in their 30′s.The medical profession has come up with all these different drugs to control your child’s behavior that is unacceptable to the parents, teachers and general public. I know all to well, as I have an ADHD child who was so out of focus with everything she was doing. Teachers at her school called me constantly, my neighbors complained about her and my own family couldn’t tolerate her. I chose not to put her on the medication because of all the friends I have who also have ADHD children who were put on the meds. The side affects became worse than the disorder itself over time.
I took my daughter off processed carbohydrates. It helped, but not enough. I finally stumbled onto a dietary supplement that has left out all food products that are known to cause allergic reactions in people. It has been regarded with the highest success rate in helping people with ADHD. At my wits end of the massive clutter, messes, extreme attitude and obsession over processed carbohydrates and just not getting it no matter what was said, I put my daughter on this product, not really expecting a whole lot. At the end of the first day I thought she was just having a moment of calm and was being nice just because she wanted to at the moment. At the end of the first week she was a completely different child. She quit screaming at everyone. She was throwing her trash in the garbage instead of dropping it or leaving it all over the house. She cleaned her room, without being told 5000 times and I could actually see the carpet. She even did her own laundry that was less than 4 loads, instead of the usual 15 loads. She was showering, her hair was brushed and wasn’t dressing like and alien. She was beginning to look and act like a normal child of 12. After the second week her homeroom teacher called me and wanted to know what I did to her to help her pay attention in class and verbally inquire to all her teachers about her grades. Hmmm!
She does have a great personality, can imitate anyone and does a comedy routine on Gangsta’s that now has my 78 year old mother laughing instead of hitting her with her checkbook. It is her responsibility to clean the cat boxes and when I reminded her to do so she got up immediately and dumped them and came back into the house and told me she preferred to wash them in the bathtub. I must have had a horrified look on my face because she suddenly burst out laughing and told me she had never done that and was on her way out to yard to clean them.
Okay, if you have an ADHD child and want an alternative to prescription drugs that have side effects go online and order a bottle of SYNAPTOL and try it. The product is made from mushroom extracts, so unless your child is allergic to mushrooms, you have very little to lose. No I do not get a kickback from the company, but I do have more mental sanity and I certainly feel for those that have lost theirs over dealing with a kid who is ADHD. Hey, after you have to use the garden rake in your kid’s bedroom and pull a folded mattress out of the closet (I’m still wondering how she did that) and come up with 43 loads of laundry, all of your missing towels and silverware you kind of get to the point of thinking of either giving that child away or finding something to help them and your sanity.
BTW, my daughter can’t swallow capsules, so she opens them up and pours them into a small glass of milk. She actually likes the way they taste. SYNAPTOL!!!!I hope everyone enjoys a wonderful Thanksgiving. This year I am truly thankful that my alien daughter from the planet Zoldor is actually acting more human.
UPDATE: SEPTEMBER 10, 2007, like many parents, am dealing with a child who is ADHD. I have found with my daughter that as she entered into her teenage years her symptoms of ADHD started to magnify with the onset of hormones. Her doctor has monitored her since being on Synaptol, unfortunately he and I had to concede in the last few months that she was going to have to go on Adderall, as she was becoming completely impossible and out of control of focusing on anything. Synaptol worked for her focus until she became a teenager. Every kid is different and you need to judge your course of action on Your Own Mental Sanity and how much you are willing to deal with. My daughter took one Adderall pill and within 20 minutes became a completely different teenage kid with total focus. Being an only parent I can’t afford medical insurance, but I am willing to do without other things to keep my child sane and in control. However, I did take her off that drug after two months as it just wasn’t working the way it was suppose to and making her more ballistic. You just have to keep trying until you find what works best for your child.
The next time you think your dog or cat are just stupid animals that you constantly feed, water, clean up after and pay some attention too when they demand it or it suits you, think again. In 1983 I lived alone in a house I owned. I had an Australian Sheppard dog, who had epilepsy and a black tortoise shell, Persian cat, who was 16 years old. I had this feeling I was being watched by someone, but couldn’t prove it. One night I was awakened by my cat rubbing in my face and pawing me. It was totally out of character for her. I pushed her aside and went back to sleep. The next thing I knew was my dog was dancing around my bed and whining. I thought she had to go outside, but as soon as I got up, she laid down. Seconds later I was confronted by a man who had broken into my house. My dog was too ill to response physically with her disease, but never left my side, nor did my cat every leave my bed. I survived unscathed as I had 3 years of Ti Kwon Do training and the intruder left worse for wear. He turned out to a professional cat burglar/rapist the police had been looking for, for over a year and they actually got his fingerprints from my house for the first time. He was eventually caught and arrested, but it left me with terrifying nightmares and the oddest, but most Spiritual experience I had ever had.
I never forgot what my dog and cat sensed that night. Twenty-three years later I never thought I would encounter that kind of unusual animal behavior again. Several days ago I had a man contact me claiming he was looking for someone who had more knowledge than he did on Spiritualism as opposed to Religion. I never found out how he got my e-mail address, phone number or home address, but he was very convincing over his thoughts and values, claiming he was seeking more guidance on Spiritualism as opposed to Religion and his claim that he just came across me on the Internet. I was very uneasy about his initial contact with me even though he was pleasant and appeared to be seeking answers to his life. He seemed honest, but there was something I knew I was missing about all of this.
When he just showed up at my house and wanted to talk to me, I was rather annoyed, since I have 2 kids to protect, who didn’t expect any of this and the 3rd of November was my son’s birthday. I sat out in the cold on the front porch listening to him. He was very in tune with the psychic world and oddly worked for the State on putting the mentally insane into a long term facility to help them. He was appalled that not one government agency had offered his phone number in the years I dealt with the courts over my ex-husband’s extreme mental illness. He gave me a State number to call to verify he actually work for the State. I called it, in front of him and it was real and true to what he said, as it was a number to the State that I had called before looking for help. It was a State Agency that verified that he was the main person who helped put away the mentally insane, who had a record of being insane. He was a very pleasant man, full of information and annoyed over what I had to deal with, as he wasn’t aware the agency he worked for was not accessible to the public by the courts or police department.
It was getting really cold outside and I wanted to go inside. I politely asked him to leave, but he wanted to come inside to warm up before he left. I blew it off. I didn’t want him in my house. There was just something about him that bothered me, but I couldn’t quite place it. I went inside to use the bathroom, but heard my 2 year old Ridgeback dog barking in a mean tone. (Ridgeback’s are extremely protective when they don’t like someone in their space) When I came out, this man was sitting in my livingroom and my Dog was agitated over it. She wouldn’t stop.
This man kept telling me he understood dogs, but it didn’t appear my dog understood him. I sat down, not wanting a major conflict with this man in front of my kids. My daughter’s cat jumped into my lap and wouldn’t leave me alone or stop meowing at me. She finally laid down in my lap, glared at this man and flipped her tail back and forth in an agitated manner. She never left my lap the entire time this man was in my house and my dog never stopped growling or barking at him. It panicked my daughter, who refused to leave to room, even when he asked her too. She might be ADHD, but she is very psychic and was uncomfortable at the thought of leaving me alone with this man. She was smart enough to use the term “ADHA” to her advantage. Between the dog and cat and my daughter, this man left on his own accord and told me he realized that my house didn’t want him there.
My thought was “Well Duh!” Listen to your animals. They always sense more than you listen too, pay attention too or accept.
Today is the first day of the Celtic New Year. For all of you die hard Celts and Neo-Pagans, HAPPY NEW YEAR! Today is Samhain, pronounced Sow-in, in the Irish and Scots Gaelic Celtic languages, but if you use the Celtic accent in modern Irish Gaelic, it sounds like Samhain to those who speak English. To pronounce this word, in my world of saying it in Breton, it is Kala-Goanv and to the best explanation I can give, (and anyone can correct me if I am wrong to what I learned as a child) but it requires you to spit through your throat into your nose in any Celtic language it is spoken. (A task not common to Americans)
May it be the best Spiritual Year of your life and always listen to what Nature is telling you, regardless of how you say it in modern day language.
Halloween has always been celebrated in my family as a Celtic Holiday. Even when I lived in Great Britain everyone got the day off work as it is a Holiday. It wasn’t until I had children and they started attending elementary school that I realized that Halloween was a big problem with several different religions who wanted the subject ban from the public schools. My son came home from First Grade crying because other children were calling him a Devil Worshiper. I’m not sure about your kids, but my 6 year old son had no clue what a Devil Worshiper was, all he knew is the kids were being mean to him because he celebrated Halloween in a Family Tradition. I was appalled. I called the teacher the next day. She had wanted to have a Halloween party, but too many parents complained to the School Board that it was a day of Devil Worship and it had to be canceled. Now I was mad.
I ended up writing a letter to the School Board explaining the true meaning of Halloween. My son’s teacher wanted to sign the letter with a comment of her approval that Halloween should be allowed in the public schools as a History lesson. By the time I got the letter back, every teacher including the Vice Principal and Principal had signed it. The School Board approved it and I was asked to come in and tell the story of Halloween to the First Graders and their parents under the guise of a Family Heritage Day. All parents who attended were asked to share their family heritage with their children. (I did not include the religious aspect of Halloween to the parents and kept it on a first grade level for the kids, but I am including it in this blog)
This is the story of Halloween as taught to me by my Great Grandfather and Celtic Lord. Keep in mind I am translating to the best English words for descriptive purposes, as my Great Grandfather spoke a mix of the Celtic Languages when he talked about the “Old Land”, of Great Britain and Ireland.
‘The story of why we honor and respect Halloween and other Celtic holidays goes back 1000′s of years through our Family bloodline. Times change and people change their view of life and how it should be lived. Those believing they are great rise to great heights, but they will always fall and eventually have to pay the price for their wrong actions on others. Our People (the Celt’s), saw the Earth and Universe as part of a musical rhythm in space and time. We spent hundreds of years marking the planets in the sky and building “towers” to view them better, marking seasonal changes of the Earth, and developing defenses to protect our people from those tribes that wanted control of our land and our life. We were and will always remain docile people, at least until we are provoked by someone else’s hate, greed or jealousy. On this day, when you honor Halloween you are honoring Samhain. It is the Gaelic word for the month of November and on the first day, it is the beginning of the Celtic New Year. As now, we celebrate New Years on the Eve of New Years Day that comes the first of January, but there is more to the celebration of October 31st than most people understand today. The Christians of the Roman Catholics observe it as All Saints Day to honor their Saints. Other religions have called it All Hallows Eve to honor the “Sacred Eve” in the Bible, (as hallow means sacred), but to Our People the Eve of anything means the Goddess of All things reproduced and soon to be brought forth for our existence on this planet, as only a female can reproduce. It is only in this “Age” of all things ending that men have taken control and women are considered weak. It will change when the “New Age” arrives.
In the past, All Hallows Eve, was changed to Halloween, but still people don’t understand why. It’s true meaning comes from the Celts, as Hallow means sacred, but een means eye. It was the Gift of Sight (sacred sight) given to all people, but many ignore it, don’t understand it, are afraid of it or allow themselves to choose the Wrong Path in their decisions because they refuse the Sight out of fear.
Halloween is celebrated on the last day of October because it is also the last day of Harvesting Food to store during the winter months in the Old Land. People piled their food into barns. Their town may have spread across miles of land, but there was always a Center to their town. At the end of the day of Harvest, the people gathered to the Center and all brought food and drink to have a celebration. During their celebration of the end of Harvest, thieves would raid the barns full of food while no one was home. Our Family (meaning the Celtic people in general) decided to scare the thieves by carving pumpkins with scary faces and making ghosts and goblins out of things they had, then leaving them around their homes and barns. Most of the other people (non Celt’s) were afraid of being attacked by scary things they didn’t understand and Our Family knew what would scare them. It worked for awhile, but the thieves realized they weren’t real and continued to raid the Harvest. So, during their celebration of Harvest the Celt’s continued to make scary faces and hang ghostly creatures around their land, but dressed their children up in scary costumes to scare away the thieves by making ghastly noises in the dark. The children were missing the Harvest celebration with all the food, sweet fruits and honey Our Family Harvested. Many children ran between homes, some miles apart, to help protect neighbors who didn’t have children, so the neighbors would give those children food and sweet fruit, like apples, cherries, plums and sloes, that had been dipped into honey, and left them a barrel of cider to drink from, to repay them for protecting their food for the winter.
When the Quakers came to this country to live so did many thieves, but harvesting continued, so the Quakers could eat, with the help of the Indians that already lived here. The same principal of All Hallows Eve was used in this country that was used in the Old Land, to help protect the food through the winter and kept the thieves away. All Hallows Eve became Hallows Eve and eventually Halloween. Times changed and the celebration of Community Harvest ended, but the Spirit of Harvest will never end in the minds of the true Celtic children who look forward to running from home to home for sweets. Without the children we wouldn’t be here at all.’
After I presented my story of Heritage, not one parent had a problem with Halloween as they looked at it as a Heritage they really never understood or were given the wrong information about growing up.
The following year, however, when my daughter entered the first grade, the very same problem arose around Halloween, but this time with a new Principal, who was convinced it was a day of Devil Worship and wanted it ban from the school. I had no choice, I complained to the Governor of the State and submitted my Great Grandfather’s story. Educators, including Principals and the School Boards in public schools were not allowed to impose a ban on Halloween, as it fell under the Freedom of Religion, since the Christian and Jewish Holidays were acknowledged by teachers and children in public schools, so could any other religious Holiday on the calendar be acknowledged. Negative language and the term “Devil Worshipping” had to be omitted from all School officials and not allowed by children in the classroom.
Although, my children are beyond elementary school learning, it doesn’t mean that adults are beyond learning things that they are ignorant too. Not everything may be as it seems, as Halloween, in no way worships the devil. Don’t be afraid to seek out alternative information and judge for yourself whether it is possible or even probable in this time. After all, Pluto WAS a planet. For those of you that don’t understand why it’s not anymore, it does not rotate on it’s own axis like the rest of the planets, but does rotate around the Sun’s gravitational pull. Smile, your life is about to get more complicated and confusing in the “New Age”.
In memory of the fallen citizens of the United States of America.
This is totally off the subject of just about everything I have written, but it has come to mind that just maybe it needs to be brought to the conscious light.
As humans we deal with different classes of people everyday. Some may not have as much education as others nor as much money, but these are material planes on this planet. How you act and react to the performance of others comes from inside your emotional subconscious.
We are a society of communities, companies and industries and have to inter-act with different types of people all the time. You may not like or love everybody you encounter, but you have to learn to accept them as they are as unique as you. However, there comes a time that, regardless of how av-ant guard you are, professional ethics might be something you definitely need to learn and utilize in your dealings with others.
For any one human to be so arrogant, flamboyant and outrageous in a professional environment that deals with the general public of all ages and walks of life has emotional issues of attention and acceptance.
I have worked as a Licensed Cosmetology Instructor for 26 years. It is an industry that can be outrageous and flamboyant, as it is a profession of creativity, but it does definitely have a written and UN-written code of professional ethics.
It is standard practice among the professionals who perform for the public or are judging the performance to wear preferably solid black or solid white. There is a reason for this. It is to take the eyes of those watching you, off of you personally and bring their eyes to the attention of what is created on the model. Models are usually draped in black, gray or dark maroon to take the eyes of the viewer to the models head. Stylist’s are selling their art work to the general public.
I attended a hair show last night in a professional manner. Everyone was dressed according to the part or role they were to have at the show. Suddenly, a casually late arrival slings open the door and gracefully breezes into the building, verbally and breathlessly drawing attention to themself. Decked out in full make-up and flowing hair in a silky floor length red dress with red pumps and spilling over the top of their low cut dress. I’m sure that sounds very sexy to all you men out there.
I had brought my 12 year old Zoldorian daughter with me, who just had to make her way to the front of the building to see who had just walked into the room. It wasn’t 30 seconds that she was back to announce to the entire hair show (Zoldorians are loud people) that the person that just came in had on a long red dress and you could see their black thong thru the material. I still haven’t perfected that melting into the floor and becoming invisible when she does that to me in public. I casually walked away from her to make my way around the building into another room only to find myself confronting the backside of the long red dress. Someone they were talking with pointed out that I was standing behind them and they slowly turned around. I was looking at a face I have encounter professionally before. As my eyes went from their face down the red dress it wasn’t hard to notice that their male package was bulging from their black thong through the red dress. By that time my Zoldorian was standing next to me. All I could do was just turn to her and say “that is just so wrong.”
I am open and honest with my children so I wasn’t worried about my daughter’s reaction. However, many older people, as well as children, should not have to be subjected to someone else’s outrageous extreme for attention.
No one is denying that the Gay community exists. There are many reasons ranging from population control to creative artistic expresssion of souls. After all, Socrates and Plato were gay and extremely inspiring in their thoughts and writings. Learning to accept people for who they are is one thing, but it does not have to include accepting inappropriate behavior, from any race, religion, sexuality or human. The Tower of Babel has fallen. The Ethics line needs to be drawn.
If any of you watch the news or read articles on what our planet is seeing in our own Solar System, and haven’t yet heard that our Solar System just may be re-defined, as the terms we have all been taught are fast becoming obsolete.
With greater space technology Scientist’s are discovering what they term are planets in our Solar System. Terminology is on the verge of being changed. Along with that change, expect new planets to be added to the 9 planets we are ready have. With many more yet to be re-classified.
I have added a blogroll link to Space News with pictures that come from NASA. Enjoy the sight and be prepared to re-learn space history.
Just one question to all of the astrologers out there, “Where are you going to add these planets into your readings and forecasts? Guess it is time to get busy re-formulating astrology readings.
Have you ever noticed this time of year, whether you are a parent or not, that you cannot go into a department store without hundreds of children with germs buying back to school clothes?
This year was one of those adventures in Back to School shopping. In reflecting back on my day, I think the department store felt sorry for me in the end.
I just wanted to get in and out without spending a fortune. When your son has the feet and body of Sasquatch you wait for that 50% off sale, which just happened to be today. It would have been a quick and pleasant trip if my elderly mother hadn’t called complaining she was bored and wanting me to do something with her. Department store shopping wasn’t in my first fifty choices of things to do with my mother, who is blind in one eye, has no sense of balance in large spaces, is always hitting me in the shins with her cane and constantly complaining and repeating herself, but she insisted and bribed me with Starbucks.
Later she tells me that she didn’t want my brother to take her to buy underwear. So, I was easily bribed and put my Zoldorian daughter in charge of her, while I stayed in the men’s department with my son to make sure he stayed in the sales clothes. It wasn’t long before I was pulled away by my daughter and my mother who were looking for me for advice on women’s underwear. I suggested to both of them to ask a clerk. I found out that Zoldorians and their elderly grandmother’s don’t ask clerks for advice on underwear. Again, I was bribed by my mother, who insisted on paying for my kids school clothes if I helped her with her underwear issues.
In my absence from the men’s department, I eventually found my son standing around the check out waiting for a credit card to appear for his school clothes purchases and new backpack he was holding. Well, of course, one child gets a new backpack, both children have to have a new backpack. My bossy mother pushes her way to the checkout line and slings her under clothes all over the counter, demands they are put in a separate bag and directs her grandchildren to set everything up on the counter, so this man can check it out. There was a mountain of clothes that I couldn’t tell what belonged to whom.
Suddenly, I was confused. My mother couldn’t ask a female clerk about underwear, but she could forcefully tell a man to put her underwear in a separate bag. There was so much stuff on the counter the checkout clerk was sweating and not understanding whose underwear belonged to whom. The clerk looked at me for some type of re-assurance he was doing it right, but am sure all he saw on my face was a dazed look. I didn’t even have anything on the counter. My mother started repeating we were going to have to make several trips to the car, over and over. I finally told her to shut-up, as I handed bags and more bags to my children to carry out. When the check-out clerk told her it was $500.00 she said nothing, but I gave my son “The Look” and he knew he was going to get it when we got home. The checkout clerk gave my mother $90.00 in gift cards and she was so excited she told me I needed to bring her back to the store tomorrow so she could buy more things. I pretended I didn’t hear her say anything.
My mother clutched her bag of underwear as if that was all she had left in life and grabbed my arm to hold onto as we ventured to the door, with her cane hitting my shin bone all the way down the aisle. She just had to make the remark that I was much more stable to hold onto than my daughter, but I told her if she was going to fall I would land on top of her because she was clutching the arm I had dislocated and had no strength in, which she didn’t seem to care that she was hurting me as long as she felt stable. When we got to the door to leave the beeping sound of theft rang out through the whole store. My mother wanted me to stop because she thought she might get arrested and I just kept pulling her along to the car, listening to her complain all the way. Nobody from the store cared to even venture in my direction. I was done taking my mother shopping. I hope she never needs underwear again in her lifetime.
I never thought I would be so happy to see this summer wind down from the heat wave that reached up to 120 degrees, along with high humidity and isolation in a house all closed up with Einstein Trump and the Zoldorian, not to mention the rats, the fish, the cats, the bird and the large dog.
My alien children received their school schedules today and the relief of knowing my grocery bill will drop by $100.00 a week was almost exciting, not because they won’t be home eating everything in sight, but because I will get to peacefully and quietly grocery shop alone.
Einstein Trump has made his plans of spending the next 5 years working hard on getting a College Scholarship, while the Zoldorian will spend the next 6 years seeing what kind of new disease she can manufacture to get out of going to school.
There are pros and cons to the 3 month summer break. The pros are 2 million people leave this city in the summer and you can actually drive down the road without utilizing your scud missiles on the side of your vehicle. The cons are your children destroying your environment and eating you out of house and home.
I almost welcome the snowbirds this year, but I really wish they would get a clue that driving 15 miles per hour under the speed limit, side by side, is not acceptable in rush hour traffic. A little advice, don’t leave your condo before 10:00 a.m. and be off the streets by 3:00 p.m. Otherwise, enjoy your stay, as the Desert Rats love having you visit but, we are the only ones left when you go home that you actually didn’t kill ;)
