WS: Tall Georgia Pines at The Swamp

Posted at 8:44 am under Thought for the Day

The Weather ‘experts’ were forecasting some particulary nasty weather for us Sunday. We were fortunate; they were wrong. This photograph was taken beofre the wind kicked up and the nasty clouds rolled in, but we never did get any rain.

Conversation with an 8 Year Old

Posted at 12:01 am under Thought for the Day

I phoned one of my SisterDears Sunday afternoon. Kevin, one of her twin 8 year old sons, answered the phone. The conversation went exactly like this:

Me: Hi, Kevin, how are you?

Kevin: Who’s this?

Me: It’s Auntie Barb.

Kevin: Oh! Hi, Auntie Barbara! How are you doing?

Me: I’m doing very well, Kevin. Thanks so much for asking!

Kevin: :giggles: Oh, you’re welcome, Auntie.

Me: Kevin, is your Mom home?

Kevin: Well, yes she is, but you know what? She’s taking a nap right now and I hate to disturb her.

Alrighty then.

WW: First Fridays

Posted at 3:54 am under Thought for the Day



What is First Friday?


Downtown Valdosta has become a vibrant and lively spot every day of the month but, on the first Friday evening of each month, downtown comes alive with music, food, shopping, art and more. Since the First Friday event in Jun 2005, First Fridays have grown to attract an average of more than 1,250 people. Many activities start about 6 p.m., with most of the music starting about 7 p.m. First Fridays reflect the diversity of Downtown Valdosta as well as the diversity of the entire city.

Finally Friday! Wait a Minute

Posted at 12:31 pm under Thought for the Day

I’ve had a very long week at the office. My brain is fried!! I’m incredibly grateful for the new business! I’m also so very thankful that the weekend is finally here. And so I bring you a joke I heard this week, boiled instead of fried… It’s healthier!

She was standing in the kitchen preparing to boil eggs for breakfast, wearing only the ‘T’ shirt that she normally slept in.

As he walked in almost awake, she turned and said softly, ‘You’ve got to make love to me this very moment.’
His eyes lit up and he thought, ‘I am either still dreaming or this is going to be my lucky day.’ Not wanting to lose the moment, he embraced her and then gave it his all right there on the kitchen table.
Afterwards she said, ‘Thanks,’ and returned to the stove, her ‘T’ shirt still around her neck.

A little puzzled, he asked, ‘What was that all about?’

She explained,

‘The egg timer’s broken.’

I’m also doing Sky Watch Friday

Manic Monday: Fresh

Posted at 8:34 am under Manic Monday

Our Manic Monday host Mo has given us the word Fresh this week.

I give you Fresh from my garden Sunday morning – some Honeysuckle Vines!

Honeysuckle is mentioned in many songs and books, but my favorite Honeysuckle lyric is Jimmy Buffet’s “Tin Cup Chalice”.

Live first verse & chorus version on YouTube:

A Fresh song from an always Fresh singer-songwriter about a fragrant & Fresh Honeysuckle Vine Fresh from the garden!
I’m betting that this was a Fresh take on this week’s theme. I’ll bet nobody else even thought of Honeysuckle Vines!

Sister Weekends

Posted at 5:29 am under Thought for the Day

Do any of you have Sisters? If you do, do you have a very close relationship?

I can’t imagine my life without my 3 SisterDears. They know all the worst things about me and they love me anyway! I live about 1500 miles away from them, but through the miracle of technology, we remain very close! Cell phones, email and blogs, gotta love it! Truth be told, with life happening everyday, school, sports, work…. something always happens so they can’t get together all that often. That is until I make my ‘annual trek’ up for our Sister Weekend! We all truly treasure our Sister Weekends.

I’ve been trying to decide when to go up this year. I usually go in July, but every 3-5 years I go up for Christmas. I wouldn’t want to completely forget how much I dislike snow and the bitter cold now would I? I finally decided! I have decided that this year I will go up for the Fall Foliage!! The last time I saw New England Fall Foliage was October 1993, and it was past its peak. So, I have decided to go up at the end of September this year. Plans are being made. Excited? Who me? Only completely!

We’re going to “do” Boston this year! Plans, we must make plans!! Faneuil Hall, The Paul Revere House, The Freedon Trail and Boston Common, the Old North Church, Bunker Hill Monument, the Museums… a Red Sox game!!! We’ll also do some sitting around the fire in our Norman hats sipping wine, listening to the piano and singing along in our relaxing clothes. Bliss!

Stock up the wine! Which restaurants shall we eat at? Decisions, decisions!

Oh, what fun we shall have!

Today is a very special day!

It is SisterDear4’s Birthday and her daughter/my niece’s Leann’s Birthday!

Happy Birthday, SD4! ~ Happy Birthday, Leann!

It’s also my beautiful gray boys’ Birthday!

Happy Birthday, Gandalf & Grayson!

Gandalf is 4 and Grayson is 5! Stop by and wish them a Happy Birthday!

  1. Amyon 01 May 2008 at 8:13 am 1

    I wish I had sisters … or brothers. Being an only child can often be lonely, plus you have to deal with overprotective parents, and now the welfare of my dad has fallen on my shoulders, a tough thing being a single working mom who lives five hours away. You are very fortunate to have that wonderful sisterhood!

    You’re right about technology’s keeping us in touch. I haven’t seen my older son in nearly a year, so I’m grateful for unlimited long distance and web cams!

  2. Danielle Says Helloon 01 May 2008 at 9:08 am 2

    This is awesome. I have a friend who does this with her sisters. Every year one of them plans the trip and they all go. I envy this. I have three sisters and they have all cut off contact with me.

  3. Heather Youngon 01 May 2008 at 11:35 am 3

    Sigh. No sisters here–oldest with two brothers. I do have a sister-in-law who is the only girl of 4 so we have each other but iit is not nearly the same.

  4. Sueon 02 May 2008 at 7:33 pm 4

    I am the oldest, with one sister and one brother. My sister and I are very close, but not as close as when we were younger and less busy. You are so right about them knowing all your faults and loving you still! Patty and I sign notes to each other “Your Favorite Sister” since there’s just two of us girls. It’s helpful to have a friend in the family who understands all the family dynamics.

    But I also have several close friends that are like sisters to me. Even if you don’t have biological sisters, or aren’t close with them, you can still have very close girl friends who serve the role as sisters.

  5. Mickeyon 02 May 2008 at 10:27 pm 5

    I also have 3 sisters. Only one lives far away,but that does not stop all of us from being close!! Our whole family is close.I also have 2 brothers :) and Mom.(Dad passed a few years ago)
    I feel sorry for families that do not get along.I have no idea what that is like .

  6. Lindsayon 02 May 2008 at 10:36 pm 6

    I’m like Heather – two younger brothers. I hang out with them, but it’s a lot different than having sisters. I do enjoy time with my mom. She has two sisters, and they have all stayed pretty close. Enjoy your time together!

  7. julieon 03 May 2008 at 5:01 pm 7

    I have one brother and a couple friends closer then sisters! But I must tell you the long gray haired cat you have…WOW perfect image of our Spazz! When I played the little video our Spazz played like your cat too. I miss Mr. Spazz! The stories I could tell about him! And he about ME too! **wink-wink**

Eating Red Ants

Filed under Family, Random Thoughts

I’ll miss the good ole days…. Winthrop…….Cottage Park Rd, eating red ants & always in trouble…you were like the older brother I never had…..surely you will be missed…..Cousin Robert

That was an excerpt from one of the entries in The Guestbook at my brother John’s Funeral. There were many heartfelt condolences, and many that made me cry. However, this one stood out for me. I was quite curious to know why 2 young boys would not only eat red ants, but also have fond memories of the experience. So, I called my cousin to ask him about this.

Must. Have. Input.

Robert told me that he, being all of a year younger than John, couldn’t stand up to the pressure John put on him. First John tried to make it sound cool! Ah! A classic approach! When that didn’t work he teased Robert, saying he was a baby, or chicken or words to that effect. In the end Robert totally caved and ate the red ants. Still, he remembers it fondly as part of his childhood memories. Boys are so strange.

So, 40 years later, I’m wondering… who I should feel more sorry for?

  • My brother John, the consummate bully
  • My cousin Robert, the picked on younger kid forced to eat red ants
  • The red ants, snack food

In the end, I think it would have to be the party who ultimately gave it their all… the red ants, of course!

Who would you pick?

Oh, and Robert and The Donald? They’re justlikethis.

Manic Monday: Rip

Filed under Thought for the Day


Our illustrious Manic Monday host Mo has served up Rip as this week’s prompt. I can’t wait to see what the other Manic Minions have done with it!

So many possibilities came to mind, but in the end I decided to go with the first Rip I thought of, which was Ripple Wine. I know, I know, you’re all surprised, right?

It was 1972 when I was first able to legally purchase and consume alcohol. In the aftermath of a night at the Drive-in drinking Seven & Sevens, I quickly discovered that I did not care for hard liquor – at all. It certainly was not my finest hour, but the lesson was very well learned. And that’s all I’m going to say about that!

Some of the drinks I tried and dismissed were Sloe Gin Fiz (doesn’t that just sound cute!) and Harvey Wallbangers (too sweet & too much acid). Someone eventually introduced me to Boones Farm and Ripple. They were both too sweet for me but I did like them enough to realize that red wine would be my drink of choice.


I will always remember my very first glass of a magnificent wine! Mmmmmm. A Wine lover was born! Château Lafite Rothschild – I just wish I could afford to drink it!

When I Googled Ripple Wine I was somewhat surprised to learn that Ripple, an inexpensive fortified wine produced by E & J Gallo Winery, is no longer made! I couldn’t even find a photo, other than this screen shot someone made from a Sanford & Son video clip.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed my little tRip down Memory Lane! I wish you all a wonderful Manic Monday!

Filed under Thought for the Day

When Allen first bought the house at The Swamp, we were commuting every other weekend or so from Florida until we could sell our business and move to Georgia permanently. On top of having the natural, unspoiled beauty of The Swamp and all its’ wildlife, we also have best neighbors! Mike, one of our new neighbors, had this little presentation waiting for us in the kitchen when we arrived for a long weekend in April 2006.

Coffee all ready to go, with a Welcome Back sign from Mike

When we first met Mike, we had no idea how much his friendship would enrich us. Mike is career Air Force, about 26 years now. Mike is the most patriotic person I have ever known. Mike is also a recipient of the Purple Heart. He was critically injured in Baghdad, Iraq about 4 years ago. His injuries were quite extensive, including Traumatic Brain Injury. He also suffers from Post- Traumatic Shock Disorder.

What defines Mike, however, is his love of God, Country, Family, Friends and Animals. He would literally give you the shirt off his back. Mike loves helping people, sometimes people he doesn’t even know well. I won’t share these things here, because Mike prefers to be an anonymous benefactor. He believes in giving people a hand up, and does so quite often. He’s an amazing human being. I am very grateful to call him my friend!
When I saw this Welcome Back from Mike, I cried. Then I took this photograph. Then I took the note and tucked it away with my treasures. It serves to remind me that a simple act of kindness can make a tremendous impact in someone else’s life.
Thank you, Mike. I love you, my friend.

There’s No Consolation In Being Right

Filed under Thought for the Day

I am the “go-to gal”. I always have been, since childhood. For those of you new to my world, I am the oldest of eight, count ‘em, eight children. I am the consummate organizer. I bring order to chaos. I can and I do.

I am sure many of you have been in situations where a family member, friend or co-worker has come to you for advice. Then almost immediately upon receiving these pearls of wisdom from you they leave, thanking you countless times for your insight and compassion.

Moments later, days later or weeks later, they have totally ignored every single word you have said, especially any words of caution you imparted specifically regarding what they should avoid at all costs.

Here it comes. The phone call. The crying call. The “what do I do now” call. The “please don’t say I told you so” call.

:sigh:

Do you honestly think I went to all that trouble just so I could say “I told you so”? Do you sincerely believe in your heart of hearts that I really wanted you to do the opposite of what I suggested you do? Do you actually buy in to the idea that I get satisfaction from watching you suffer continuously and needlessly as you repeat the same mistake over & over again?

Sometimes, just sometimes, people make me wish I were wrong.

Truly, there are times when there is no consolation in being right, especially when someone you love gets hurt. Again.

Manic Monday: Quake

Filed under Thought for the Day

This week when Mo gave us Quake for Manic Monday I’ll admit it…. I was stumped.

I went to Savannah, GA for a short get away weekend with some friends. This city is steeped in History and southern ambiance. Its’ first recorded history was in 1733, the year General James Oglethorpe and the 120 passengers of the good ship “Anne” landed on a bluff high along the Savannah River.

Johnny Mercer wrote the Lyrics to Moon River, having been inspired by the Savannah River and his Huckleberry childhood in Savannah.

Savannah is dripping in Southern Charm & Hospitality!


Savannah is breathtaking in it’s beauty!

Savannah also has some of the most majestic Live Oak Trees.

Live Oaks make my heart quake!

Thank goodness for my digital camera and ginormous memory cards! In one day I took more than 500 photos of beautiful Savannah, GA. I know I’ll be back to visit Savannah again one day soon. There’s so much to see & do, and I never even explored the nightlife and dining.

Want to play Manic Monday? That’s easy, just stop by Mo’s for more info.

Lookie here what Mo awarded me! Post of the Week for Manic Monday!

Thanks, Mo! This is way cool! I’m honored.

Hmmm… Who knows, maybe he’ll even add me to the BlogRoll now! ;-) Smoochies, Buddy!

Anyone remember the movie Remo Williams, The Adventure Begins? It’s from 1985, starring Fred Ward, Joel Grey & Kate Mulgrew. It was far from a hit, but I always enjoy watching it.

There’s one particular line from the movie that Chiun, the Korean martial arts master played by Joel Grey, speaks:

Lesson 22: Blessed Silence


I can’t tell you how many times I have used that line; sometimes spoken, sometimes thought. I can’t speak for anyone else, but I live in a world where my ears are constantly being assaulted. This line comes to me often. It’s like a prayer, that’s been answered.

Ah…. Blessed Silence!

2 Witty Remarks to “WW: Dogwood Trees to Celebrate Arbor Day”

  1. Heather Youngon 23 Apr 2008 at 10:35 am 1

    :) Nice trees. We have too many–hubby won’t let me plant more because he hates mowing around them.

  2. Lindsayon 24 Apr 2008 at 12:25 am 2

    Good thinking. I would plant a tree if I had a yard. I guess I could always keep a small one in a pot for a few years.

Manic Monday: Rip

Posted at 1:01 am under Thought for the Day


Our illustrious Manic Monday host Mo has served up Rip as this week’s prompt. I can’t wait to see what the other Manic Minions have done with it!

So many possibilities came to mind, but in the end I decided to go with the first Rip I thought of, which was Ripple Wine. I know, I know, you’re all surprised, right?

It was 1972 when I was first able to legally purchase and consume alcohol. In the aftermath of a night at the Drive-in drinking Seven & Sevens, I quickly discovered that I did not care for hard liquor – at all. It certainly was not my finest hour, but the lesson was very well learned. And that’s all I’m going to say about that!

Some of the drinks I tried and dismissed were Sloe Gin Fiz (doesn’t that just sound cute!) and Harvey Wallbangers (too sweet & too much acid). Someone eventually introduced me to Boones Farm and Ripple. They were both too sweet for me but I did like them enough to realize that red wine would be my drink of choice.


I will always remember my very first glass of a magnificent wine! Mmmmmm. A Wine lover was born! Château Lafite Rothschild – I just wish I could afford to drink it!

When I Googled Ripple Wine I was somewhat surprised to learn that Ripple, an inexpensive fortified wine produced by E & J Gallo Winery, is no longer made! I couldn’t even find a photo, other than this screen shot someone made from a Sanford & Son video clip.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed my little tRip down Memory Lane! I wish you all a wonderful Manic Monday!

  2. Jamieon 21 Apr 2008 at 9:15 am 2

    Now a post that combines Johnny Mercer, beautiful pictures, and live oaks is quite an achievement. Don Williams has a song with a line that always seemed magic:

    “And I still hear the soft southern wind in the live oak trees”

  3. Sandee (Comedy +)on 21 Apr 2008 at 11:48 am 3

    Very well done. It is indeed beautiful in Savannah. Have a great MM. :)

    Great shots that remind me of the very old oaks we have in and near New Orleans. There is a place called Oak Alley near a plantation that reminds me of one of the pics. Georgia is truly beautiful!

WordPress 2.5

Posted at 6:08 am under Thought for the Day, WordPress 2.5

My Weekend Snapshot is here, due to the following:

So, I upgraded to WP 2.5 yesterday. I thought it went off without a hitch! 

Until.. I begin my first post since upgrading. I find that I can’t insert any photos. I can upload into the Gallery, but it won’t show the thumbnails and I can’t do anything with them.

I can see them in the Media Library with the Thumbnails.

I’m getting very frustrated! I deactivated ALL my plugins, but it made no difference.

OK Internet – what am I missing?? HELP!!!

    Sorry! I can’t offer help. A computer tech, I am not!

  3. Heather Youngon 31 Mar 2008 at 9:46 am 3

    I was planning on installing it on my demo blog later today and may be able to help you then once I get it figured out.

    I checked the wordpress forums and it does say that they changed the default thumbnail name–not sure if that would change anything. Let me know if you don’t figure it out–I will look around in a bit–the kids are clamoring for attention.

  4. Suzieon 31 Mar 2008 at 10:06 am 4

    NO idea. Im at a loss with these things I just keep clicking things until they work.

  5. Kelly Caton 31 Mar 2008 at 8:14 pm 5

    Hopefully WordPress will fix this glitch quick. My human just used the automatic upgrade plugin and hasn’t seen any problems since.

  6. Ron Russoon 01 Apr 2008 at 11:29 am 6

    I upgraded the other day too and all went well. I had no problem with the gallery. Have you checked out WordPress.org? Here’s the link to info about the gallery:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_the_gallery_shortcode

    Just paste the link into your address bar.
    good luck.

    Have you read the two Peter Moore Italy books? They are SO good!

    Ish. I have just upgraded last night. I haven’t tried inserting any photos yet, only wrote a post about the upgrade. @.@ Maybe I should try a post with a photo later… :/

Finally Friday: The Home & Garden Show & The Nursery

Filed under Finally Friday

This weekend is the Home & Garden Show at the James H Rainwater Conference Center. I attended last year brimming with excitement, only to be disappointed. To be fair, I lived in Lakeland, FL prior to moving to Valdosta, GA and Lakeland’s annual show puts this one to shame. I keep forgetting this is Hicksville, comparatively speaking.

We’re not in Kansas anymore, Toto.

I may still attend, depending on how long I stay at the new Nuresry I just found out about. It’s acre after acre after acre of splendid plants, shrubs and trees. It is kind of weird for some, I know, but I just love this kind of stuff.

I’m told they have an entire greenhouse full of Orchids!
img_0584_web.JPG
I’m also hoping to find a few dogwoods and a perhaps some other lovelys. It’s my version of other’s Yard Sales or Malls. I just love things that grow!

Want more Georgia? The Georgia Blog Carnival is open for your reading enjoyment over at Paw Paw Bill’s.

And just for some Friday Fun!

Teaching Math in Florida

Now, before you read this I want to assure you that this is not my opinion of ALL teachers. I happen to have 2 teachers in my immediate family who absolutely love teaching and both of them are brilliant and gifted educators! I also have friends who are College Professors and even a fellow Wine Taster who happens to be Dean of Students at a wonderful university. As a general rule I have the deepest respect and the highest regard for teachers, cops, firefighters and our military. In my opinion, they are all undervalued, and I don’t mean just monetarily. However, as is true with any profession or field, there are exceptions to the general rule. No matter where you go, you will always find “them”. So don’t get crazy on me!!

A few years ago I was looking for a full time employee. I needed someone to do shipping and receiving as well as my ink mixing. For the benefit of those of you who’ve never worked in the Graphic Arts or Printing Industry, this basically means opening the book to the specific formula and figuring what percentages of each of the 2, 3 or 4 colors of ink are needed for a pound of that particular ink color. Yeah, this is not Rocket Science.

One of my customers asked me to consider an acquaintance of his for the position. After interviewing him, and despite his teaching degree and 20 years of experience teaching 4th grade in the Fort Lauderdale Public School System, I hired him. He was overqualified, but he needed a job and I needed someone I could depend on.

During his first week I assigned him a task I am confident could adequately be completed by an average 10 year old. I know this to be true because my own niece had done it several times. After giving him the 10 minute instructions and having him observe me mixing while reviewing over a few days, I asked him to mix a pound of ink on his own.

j0409227.jpgThink “Deer in the head lights”.

Much to my astonishment, this man, this teacher of our precious youth, had no idea how to calculate percentages! It’s not as though there wasn’t a calculator just to the right of him. Needless to say we never progressed to multiplying for 2 or more pounds or (Heaven Forbid!) fractions. Oh, I am totally serious.

As a footnote, I will mention that I ignored my better judgment when I overlooked the errors he made filling out the application. In hindsight, I discovered he also wasn’t skilled in reading or writing either.

Note to self: First Impressions and Gut Instincts are never again to be disregarded.

How long did he remain in my employ, you ask? He quit after 2 weeks. Apparently, I have unreasonable expectations.

Next!

And now, in the tradition of one of my favorite bloggers, a joke. Empress Bee said I could borrow has no idea I’m using this, but it is so true that I had to post it, along with the above story from my own personal experience.

Thanks, Miss Bee! You’re a real Georgia Peach!

Remember

Today is my brother John’s funeral. The Service should be over in just a few minutes, actually. I did not attend, partly because our parents live with me here in Georgia and the services are in New England. They are just not up to the trip, emotionally or physically. It is too much for them to fathom, too much to face. Truth be told, I have never been one to attend funerals. If they were held months or even seasons past the pain and emotion, perhaps. But not so soon.

img010_web.jpgThis is the last Family Portrait where all of eight children and our parents were all together. It was taken at SisterDear3’s wedding, so I’m estimating it was 22 years ago or so. We were planning a new one for this summer.

MotherDear asked me to sign John’s Online Guestbook on behalf of our youngest brother who cannot attend. I searched for a poem I thought would suit them both. As I reread it, it makes me sweetly sad. I think they would both approve.

Remember

Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you plann’d:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.

Love, Billy

Teaching Math in Florida

Posted at 12:01 am under Just for laughs, Thought for the Day

Now, before you read this I want to assure you that this is not my opinion of ALL teachers. I happen to have 2 teachers in my immediate family who absolutely love teaching and both of them are brilliant and gifted educators! I also have friends who are College Professors and even a fellow Wine Taster who happens to be Dean of Students at a wonderful university. As a general rule I have the deepest respect and the highest regard for teachers, cops, firefighters and our military. In my opinion, they are all undervalued, and I don’t mean just monetarily. However, as is true with any profession or field, there are exceptions to the general rule. No matter where you go, you will always find “them”. So don’t get crazy on me!!

A few years ago I was looking for a full time employee. I needed someone to do shipping and receiving as well as my ink mixing. For the benefit of those of you who’ve never worked in the Graphic Arts or Printing Industry, this basically means opening the book to the specific formula and figuring what percentages of each of the 2, 3 or 4 colors of ink are needed for a pound of that particular ink color. Yeah, this is not Rocket Science.

One of my customers asked me to consider an acquaintance of his for the position. After interviewing him, and despite his teaching degree and 20 years of experience teaching 4th grade in the Fort Lauderdale Public School System, I hired him. He was overqualified, but he needed a job and I needed someone I could depend on.

During his first week I assigned him a task I am confident could adequately be completed by an average 10 year old. I know this to be true because my own niece had done it several times. After giving him the 10 minute instructions and having him observe me mixing while reviewing over a few days, I asked him to mix a pound of ink on his own.

j0409227.jpgThink “Deer in the head lights”.

Much to my astonishment, this man, this teacher of our precious youth, had no idea how to calculate percentages! It’s not as though there wasn’t a calculator just to the right of him.

13 Witty Remarks to “Teaching Math in Florida”

  1. Amyon 27 Mar 2008 at 6:58 am 1

    When I worked for our local daily newspaper, I spent much time in the community teaching teachers how to use the newspaper in the classroom. I very often walked away shaking my head. There are teachers who don’t know a noun from a verb … seriously.

  2. Suzieon 27 Mar 2008 at 9:02 am 2

    OK I admit it. Im trained as a teacher and I couldn’t even concentrate on math enough the finish reading your word problems. To quote Barbie “Math is hard!”

  3. Vixenon 27 Mar 2008 at 2:09 pm 3

    **wiping hysterical tears from eyes**

    Can’t stop snorting. Co-workers are starting to stare at me…

  4. Hootin’ Annion 27 Mar 2008 at 3:14 pm 4

    Oh dear….some of these makes one want to just go “hmmmmmmmm”

    While others just make me literally laugh out loud!!!

  5. SandyCarlsonon 27 Mar 2008 at 4:45 pm 5

    After a day of subbing 20 second-graders, five of whom were ESL, 12 of whom were on psyche meds, and of whom refused to behave, I have to wonder why Florida has not called Dr. Jack for a mercy killing. Forgive the cynicism.

  6. Bobbieon 27 Mar 2008 at 8:30 pm 6

    You have no idea how all of that is true. I now have 3 grandchildren in the Florida school system and it is a shame. My granddaughter was having some problems with reading comprehension in school and we discovered that the teacher had assigned her to help a boy in the class to read who only spoke Spanish and my granddaughter only speaks English. The schools in Florida are terrible to say the least.

  7. Mybellaviaon 28 Mar 2008 at 7:20 am 7

    It’s so sad, but very true! But, every once in a while, you run into the cream of the crop! Thomas’ new teacher at Manville has been teaching the same class for 18 years, and he is blessed to have found her! Keep your fingers crossed for next year!

  8. Lindsayon 28 Mar 2008 at 1:03 pm 8

    Ha, I have to agree with you. This was a great way to put it. “Underline the number 20″ made me laugh the most. Haha. It reminded me of the Jeopardy Saturday Night Live skit where the contestants were told to “just write a number.”

  9. Cassieon 28 Mar 2008 at 1:44 pm 9

    I completely agree (hence why I homeschool). Pretty funny.

  10. Janelon 31 Mar 2008 at 8:09 am 10

    wow. That is crazy. Sad about that guy. Funny math “lesson” also a bit sad, but true in most places unfortunately.
    So far, in our particular school, we’ve had great teachers. I think it has a lot to do with having such a good principal, though. The fish stinks from the head down!

  11. Crazycathon 31 Mar 2008 at 9:14 am 11

    Hi – over from David’s blog (and congrats on making the Post of the Day list – well deserved).

    This had me laughing out loud and I have never been to the US never mind Florida! Apart from the language spoken on the last question, the same could be said for parts of the UK – and all of the UK except for the last one!
    Underlining the number is the best one. So true. So true.

    And the teacher who couldn’t do percentages? Unfortunately that is true too. Sometimes I wonder how they get through the degree….

  12. quillyon 31 Mar 2008 at 11:45 am 12

    I found you via David’s Post of The Day. I am a teacher so the title of your post grabbed me. I have to tell you that I, too, am appalled at the number of my under-educated and incompetent colleagues. When I realize I have to teach my students something I do not fully grasp myself — yes, it happens — I do not decide to bluff my way through, I go find someone to teach ME. This is called preparation. It is part of our jobs.

    The reason some teachers don’t do it is because they aren’t paid to. Things like that happen on our own time. IT takes a special kind of dedication to be a competent teacher. When you find one, thank him/her.

  13. Jeni Hill Ertmeron 01 Apr 2008 at 5:03 am 13

    Another visitor here from David’s place – just wanted to let you know that your experience there is pretty much the same as what goes on all too often here in Pennsylvania too!

    Nah- I’ve never smelled anything at all, and I’ve been to Venice eight times and I usually stay a week or more. :) It’s… all the good things you’ve ever read… Venice is like being given a box of chocolate covered cherries, and some poor souls just aren’t partial to chocolate covered cherries. But they are my very favorite thing!

  6. Sannion 29 Mar 2008 at 6:02 am 6

    WOW! That´s the perfect way to start the day! Beautiful!
    I´d get “high” just by looking out in the morning. *LOL*

    Happy Hunting!

    I wouldn’t mind looking high up there if I see so beautiful blooms and clear blue sky! Great choice for today’s theme, happy weekend! ;-)

    Mine are up… Hop in for some fun this weekend in Criz Cats Sanctuary and/or have a look sometimes why need things to be HIGH in Insight Criz.

    Cheery dogwood blossoms up high against the brilliant blue sky. We don’t have dogwoods around here, but a neighbor has a beautiful tulip tree in bloom. Yeah for Spring! ThanX for the handy Mr. Linky.

  35. Patriciaon 29 Mar 2008 at 1:33 pm 35

    Very lovely photograph. Just this morning I was lying on my swing outside and looking up through the sweetgum trees that surrounded me. Though they are without the magnificent bloom of the dogwood, I was still delighting in the bright green of new growth that has filled what were bare branches just weeks ago. Blessings!

  36. david mcmahonon 29 Mar 2008 at 4:42 pm 36

    Thank you for your great comment that led me, in turn, back to your blog. Discovering gems like this blog is one of my greatest delights.

    You write beautifully and you have a great camera eye. I’ve enjoyed my first visit here. Do let me know if it’s OK to add you to my blogroll.

    I won’t be able to visit every day as I work full-time, I write novels and I am a hands-on Dad, but I want to keep your blog on my radar….

  15. Janeon 27 Mar 2008 at 4:48 am 15

    What beautiful, soulful eyes. I miss having a kitty in the house :(
    I’ll just have to come back and visit yours again!

  16. The gods are users.on 02 Apr 2008 at 1:30 am 16

    The gods are users.
    You don’t want to heed the senarios they sell you telepathically. The gods instruct the computer to use temptation to test us. Your best case senario is to recapture your innocence and strive for purity:::Flanders in on the Simpsons FOR A REASON!!! Barring that, if you are so corrupted you MUST understand then you need to think and interperet their clues yourself and stop listening to the inaccurate senarios they feed you, for this is a delaying tactic which is costing you years.

    Children are discounted by adults in society. This is nothing new, for adults have always minimized the wisdom of children::::The gods corrupt people as they age, use trust-building tactics and soon adults view the children as ignorant, yet to understand the god’s system, and subsequently look down on the children. This is one of the most bitter, painful ironies the gods employ::::
    Religions teach that old people to go to heaven when they die. They don’t. Old people are reincarnated. It’s children who go to heaven.
    The wisdom the gods impart to children, either through their innocence/purity or religious-based educational pursuits, are the gods sharing the truth with their most favored people::::It’s the children whom the gods teach the right way for it is the children who have a chance. For example, they teach children to have faith, for understanding the god’s geographical clues hurts people by illustrating negative things, opening the door for the god’s to employ deceptive tactics.
    Old people don’t go to heaven. Old people must come back because of the mistakes they’ve made throughout their lives. It’s the children who have the opportunity to go to “heaven”. They must behave apprioriately, think correctly and be genuinely god-fearing. Their innocence and lack of desensitization ensures they have a real opportunity to achieve this goal.

    Females are better people than males
    Historically the role of females was as enforcers of decency. Men have god’s disfavor and enagage in behavior damaging to themselves and their families. Women who adhered to this crucial role helped the men understand and avoid inappropriate behavior while enhancing decency in their domestic environment. These women sacrifice to help the disfavored:::They are like Jews, scattered throughout Europe to help the misled Christians.
    Many disfavored groups embrace “paternalistic superiority” and believe the men are “entitled”::::;If Italian women tried to enforce decency the men beat and raped them.
    The gods subsequently used this Italian charecterisitic to corrupt other morbidly disfavored groups, legitimizing this and other associated behavior.

    They said HW was a “traitor”, established with the airplane incident during WorldWarII. As we witnessed repeatedly in the 20th century, these incidents ocurr to initiate a legacy and pave the way for a far more significant events in the future::::
    If true this legacy would recurr in W’s administration::::
    Rebate checks on the way into and out of office are both bad signs.
    Signing on to Iraq to eliminate Saddam and 4,000 Americans is another clue.
    Don’t be surprised if they have him sabotage some things on his way out, and since McCain is good it will (has) happen(ed) one way or the other::::
    The whole economy issue came out of nowhere in February 2008. Consistant with the god’s methodology, expect justification was utilized::::::
    Of course the crashing dollar of the last few years has comeplled OPEC to value oil with the Euro instead of the dollar.
    Don’t forget:::The Reagan administration was charecterized with banking scandal too:::”Intentional foreclosure” constitutes justification sufficient for their exclusion::::
    I realize this problem isn’t just a California issue, but the “upside down” status of home owners makes California special, makes “intentional foreclosure” far more attractive to the morbidly disfavored, victims of the “platform” which was used to promote social poison in the 20th century.

    Sounding like a goddamn blooming idiot when he speaks is a clue unlike any others. When Reagan spoke it sounded as if he “fuddled”, a clue not to trust him.
    “They’re going to pay for 2004.” Redneck states. And oh how they will pay:::
    Recently they have stated that the Chinese are holding US paper. Some patriot W is, selling US debt to communists. Perhaps the invasion mentioned below will be a way to “redeem” these bonds after they’ve fallen into default.

    Earlier they illustrated that there is a higher ocurrance of 1998 victims in the South, using the Clinton figure to prey on his own kind.
    Perhaps part of the family legacy.
    Considering the scripted real estate collapse in California, the “upside down” position and subsequent explositon in “intentional foreclosure”, do the gods sell these rednecks on “eye for an eye” to some individuals, useful in building their confidence and ensuring absolute compliance, among other things?

    Forgiveness:::Some Meditereanean preaches the virtues of “forgiveness”. I guess. It was their kind who fucked up Planet Earth.
    The Jesus who preached forgiveness was evil, the same Jesus backed by the god’s powers via miracles.
    “Eye for an eye makes the world blind.” Oh, no::::”Eye for an eye” conditions people and forces them to behave appropriately.
    One goal of the Iraq War was to eliminate Saddam Hussein. Saddam Hussein was an OUTSTANDING leader for the disfavored Iraqis. He kept the peace among the grossly disfavored which, once US pullout is complete, may never be achieved again.
    If Saddam Hussein was assigned American urban ghettos the blacks whom resided there would become decent, and their children would have a real opportunity to ascend where none exists today.
    “Forgiveness” is yet another dynamic of Christianity which is preditory.
    This current environment where the gods punish evil covertly enables the perception of evil rewarded and the indecnecy that results produces a planet which is not sustainable.

    ———————————————————————————————

    There is one geographic clue I have not addressed in years:::Uranus, a planet tilted 90 degrees on its axis. I have stated in years past that I think this is yet another geographic clue offered by the gods, this one suggesting the fate of planet Earth, that tectonic plate subduction would be the method of disposal:::Earth’s axis will shift breaking continental plates free and initiating mass subduction.
    Undesirables will either perish in the government marijuana erradication program “gone awry” or be the recipients of reparations granted by the US government because of it.
    Or both.
    I believe the New Testiment battle of the Anti-Christ and the Second Coming of Christ will ocurr in subsequent years SPECIFICALLY because these people will be distracted with the money during the event.
    When the Earth’s axis shifts people will be cast into outer space with gold cards in hand.
    I think this was foreshadowed on an episode of the Simpsons where Homer and Bart are on the disfavored ship and eject, only to experience a sense of euphoria, expand then explode in the vacuum of space.

    Recall I recently brought up the possible Manifest Destiny-positioned Chinese invasion of the United States (west coast) upon economic abandonment by their clone host tools (economic destruction and deterioration.mp3). They have mentioned this in years past.
    Newspaper just made a curious change where they combined the sports and business sections, and to properly read the business section you need to read “backward”. Like Asian languages.
    Tariffs. The gods are instruct their tools to defend open free trade, as they will to the bitter end. The gods have a script and they need economic (d)evolution sufficient to justify what they have scripted for our future, so they use their tools to adamantly defend this concept of fair trade::::The time for tariffs has long since past.
    Recently they have stated that the Chinese are holding US paper. Some patriot W is, selling US debt to communists. Perhaps the invasion will be a way to “redeem” these bonds after they’ve fallen into default.
    Incidentally, the Chinese recalls (lead-based paint on toys, toothpaste, etc) may be in preparation for this invasion, a tactic esuring a percentage of disfavored affected will fight to the bitter end.
    I’ve recently stated how the gods will use the Japanese as role models to the Chinese as China becomes increasingly Westernized. Expect a cultural movement celebrating Japanese culture in decades prior, much as we witnessed in the west in the past.
    If we do witness a Chinese invasion on American soil don’t be surprised if the very same tactics the Japanese employed on the Chinese will be used on us. Lack of empathy is a dynamic the gods will find important in the context of justification, niggers:::
    I’ve recently stated how the gods will use the Japanese as role models to the Chinese as China becomes increasingly Westernized.
    Feedback II.wav
    Recall how Americans so frequently laughed at the French for their lack of military response when confronted by the Nazi army. To resist would have been suicide. Their reaction was appropriate. The opposite would be one as we witnessed in Vietnam. These are morbidly disfavored Asians and take great pride in their resistance. The gods DO use their pride in resistance by positioning in appropriate temptation, ensuring minimal sucess.
    If events transpire I recommend you respond like the French and not like the Vietnamese. If this is a west coast event it may not have serious effect but if it is nationwide the United States will lose over a hundred million in the South and midwest.

    It doesn’t matter. McCain doesn’t have a chance. Osama’s too good. The debates will be one-sided. He has a better chance against Hillary. I can get into the explanation that the gods only use their power to hurt the disfavored, but you’ve already heard it. Consistant with this, expect gas to climb to $4 if not $5 this summer, ensuring the election is delivered to the wrong candidate::::They’ve used the price of gas to punish the people for electing the wrong person. In addition, public response to recent poor economic reports ensures conservative behavior, another factor which is intentionally damaging to McCain’s chances.
    IN 2000 you didn’t have a choice, and they sent this clue very nicely with proceedings surrounding the election (just like the 2008 Democratic candidate due to Superdelegates!!!). But 2004 was different. In an ironic twist it will be just the opposite this year, where the gods use the price of gas and run-down economy diverts you TO their prefered candidate. It’s ocurring intentionally for this purpose.
    You idiot redneck political types are the chumps here. 1998::::Something for everybody. Clinton’s impeachment was for people like you. ANYTIME the kids support a candidate it is a RED FLAG, and they supported Clinton in 1992.
    It is VERY important that you think clearly::::::::It’s important you differentiate between your thoughts and when the computer thinks through you. They’ve led many into Damnation with this tactic.
    Both Clinton and Osama have redwhite&blue campaign signs. John McCain’s is blue and white.
    McCain’s our man.
    After 2003 John McCain stated his opposition to the war. Despite this pro-war “party line” he must adhere to as the Republican candidate I’d like this used during the campaign. Without it he is finished.
    “McCain’s a dinosaur.” So was matchmaking. So was decency.
    People don’t understand this issue. They see Osama and think he’s the best candidate because he’s appears to have more favor. Never look for consistancy, for Artificial Intelligence is infinitly dynamic:::They make W sound like an idiot when he speaks for a different reason. Also, “sumbling” and “idiot” likely have separate meanings associated. Sorry. It’s not supposed to be easy.
    The gods have their plan and they aren’t going to allow any “do-gooders” interfere with how they intend to proceed:::When they put forth good they create tactics to play off the public’s misconceptions::::Make him stumble over his words, etc. The gods send this clue in the Situation:::I’m trying to help people and they ruin my delivery to ensure the number of people who are receptive is minimized.
    Don’t forget::::The gods will create the perception of favor then corrupt the disfavored with it. My example is Mormons who have the appearance of favor. The gods use this to corrupt the others, even use it to enhance the ranks of LDS. And if any of you LDS think that “We’ve changed.” can look to the Catholic Church as the roots of Christianity to help you understand.
    Yes both candidates are clone hosts. Yes the gods will switch them out to justify them being good or evil, depending on how the script reads. But much as I explained this “multi-dimentional” thinking is not for you. The gods use this as a corruptor. They’ll sell this, lie to the disfavored and use this as temptation.
    “Your child is Hitler. Fuck him over.” is just one example:::If you don’t do the best you can for your children the gods will punish you.
    This is the life into which you’ve been placed. This is the life on which you will be judged.

    In case you are still interested in the god’s Planet Earth theater, favored redwhite&blue is a MAJOR player, and their favor is significant to justify not only the destruction of my life but the destruction of the Final Prophet and Planet Earth as well::::
    Favored redwhite&blue is the true enemy of the people. I suspect consistant with this they are positioned responsible for the environmental deterioration that the repression of /files/includes/alternate.css technologies has wrought.
    The gods put their positioning into place and then enforce it:::Christianity, Manifest Destiny, Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalysis, 1906’s New Roman Empire. I suspect World War II’s Nazi ideals of “Aryan superrace” is another example of the gods getting their tools into place for the theater that will be the Apocalypse.
    Because of their status as enemies of the New Roman Empire the germans are going to be positioned as the destructors, similar to how they were portrayed in World War II.
    Don’t be surprised if favored redwhite&blue turns out to be the Anti-Christ and leads the Fourth Reich, fulfilling this positioning and proving to the world the destructive nature of this economic system. This may not be exactly how their script reads, but the god’s have a BIG SURPRISE like this to spring on the disfavored, and it will contain an insult like this as a clue NOT to watch this theater::::::Expect they will fulfill some contrived positioning foreshadowed in WorldWarII:::Some American plays the role of hero and emerges as the Second Coming of Christ for this final scene.
    Who will it be? Italian? Look for at least the mother to be Italian, consistant with matrilineal descent, allowing the New Roman Empire to claim the Second Coming of Christ. It’s all just theater. The gods don’t admit any of this because people woudl freak, especially as we approached the big day.

    People may say “How can they poisiton favored redwhite&blue in as the Anti-Christ?” It may be consideration. Don’t forget:::They prey on enemies of the Roman Empire out of respect for their Manifest Destiny superiors.
    The gods positioning the Italians gave it to him for his loyalty. They gave it to him for his efforts to defeat /files/includes/alternate.css technologies/energy sources, ensuring the people would be delivered to the point of desperation.
    It’s all theater. The gods position it that the New Roman Empire is dooling out the “big prizes”, and Anti-Christ is a big role. Likely the gods position it as it buys him immortality in the context of this absentee-Christian god positioning. The “help” of this “back hand” is the gods positioned that he needs this to achieve immortality because of all the evil he engaged in during the course of his life, building his organizational empire.

    There is a issue with timing and the beginning of construction of disfavored redwhite&blue’s center, one where this company looks bad.
    I personally believe the favored redwhite&blue is the element of favor necessary for my failure, for if it were just the disfavored redwhite&blue involved the gods would have let them fry and we would have had a full-blown prophet event, one where our “absentee Christian god” emerged and revealed themselves.
    In addition favored redwhite&blue had to maintain appearances. Disfavored redwhite&blue is Italian and was VERY involved in the 20th century’s ugliness.
    My life was destroyed becuase the gods had to create unrespecability in the context of positioning. Evident by their easily-discovered evil, disfavored redwhite&blue wouldn’t have cared if I was respectable or not, for they were involved in great evil against the respectable.
    Favored redwhite&blue is why I am fat. Favored redwhite&blue is why I was sedintary, for if I were respectable the gods wouldn’t have been able to position favored redwhite&blue into the Situation. Because of their ethnicity they get the priveledge of looking good. This is one reason why they got that prior knowledge and constructed their center before the Situaiton began::::Favored redwhite&blue is the TRUE Enforcer.
    Incidentally, in the course of this Situation the gods made many movies, using daily events in my life as inspiration. One of note:::Unhappy about the god’s behavior in the context of this event, while in favored redwhite&blue’s facility I looked at their mascot and flippantly declared::::”Why don’t you make a movie about these things?” Two years later ____ came out.
    They won’t admit this because favored redwhite&blue has to maintain their reputation based on integrity, any creative claims countering this truth were attemtpts to protect this, for this movie was unseemly and was very telling about the direction the gods were taking the people.
    And, as an added bonus they had their scapegoat without actually compensating him!!! Welcome to the pathology of the gods.
    In case you are still interested in the god’s Planet Earth theater, favored redwhite&blue is a MAJOR player, and their favor is significant to justify not only the destruction of my life but the destruction of the Final Prophet and Planet Earth as well::::
    Favored redwhite&blue is the true enemy of the people. I suspect consistant with this they are positioned responsible for the environmental deterioration that the repression of /files/includes/alternate.css technologies has wrought.
    The gods put their positioning into place and then enforce it:::Christianity, Manifest Destiny, Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalysis, 1906’s New Roman Empire.

    Who will it be? Italian? Look for at least the mother to be Italian, consistant with matrilineal descent, allowing the New Roman Empire to claim the Second Coming of Christ.

    This entire event was something special, and consistant with segmentation they lied to different disfavored based on their chances :::Saved or The Damned.
    To The Damned I am an enemy of the Roman Empire, someone to be destroyed and used, and if the disfavored found that acceptable it worsened their lot, costed them hope and was a clue any recovery would be a very tough road to hoe.
    The saved saw other clues, boss, natural calamities, and it gave rise to me as a possible historical figure. The gods offered clues that neither “savior” nor “new king of Earth” was possible, for Christianity positioning is going to be fulfilled and Earth has to die.
    I don’t think we were ever talking about Second Coming of Christ in public circles, for this would have implied The End and that would have compelled people to freak. But in the context of private positioning, perhaps to clone hosts in The Beast, certainly to me, there may have been some connection::::
    Jesus of course was Jew, and they positioned this was a competition, reasoning “Since the Jews got Jesus they get this too.”, and that’s why I was hired by the Jew. Expect this was a way to enhance the theater among the disfavored.
    So positioning states by delivering me to these New Roman Empire monsters they knew I’d get fucked, and in the process forfeit this historical role, to the Jews, perhaps an Italian, for Italians granted “charity wealth” to Jews for planning/implimenting WWII and the Holocaust.
    In light of this “New Roman Empire”, since Christianity’s HQ is in Rome expect the Italians played some part in this historical, religious context.
    They suggested this event may already may have happened. If so this was the FAKE battle of good and evil, FAKE battle between the Second Coming of Christ and the Anti-Christ. They suggest the phoniness about it which was communicated to the disfavored telepathically was a clue. Ironically, this Situation is the REAL battle of good and evil, me vs. the gods.
    When the REAL battle of the Second Coming of Christ and Anti-Christ occurrs it will be theater, a staged event, and the Second Coming of Christ will “lead out” a pre-selected group, all of whom sign on to the god’s Christianity positioning, ironically incurring evil by participating and limiting their time in the process.
    Italians:::”(We’re all that. We deserve Second Coming.)” And they’re going to get it.
    The Boot will fuck you yet again::::People know Jesus isn’t the son of god, yet this is what the Bible dictates as requirement to be saved.
    Those whom the Second Coming will “lead out” will be a pre-selected group. But the “hangers on”, people who think they will be included by claiming to be believers will be disappointed. They will be mislead, left behind, The Boot’s final victims on Planet Earth.
    This is unimportant, irrelevant, because much like the creation of the perception of “savior” around Jesus to distract from his original purpose the gods used their tools to create this theater around me to prevent the disfavored from learning what I teach:::The Boot has fucked the disfavored twice, once when they ruined life in the 20th century, again when they were used to CHEAT you out of the Final Prophet.
    The gods use their tools to impliment their script then punish them for falling for temptation. Welcome to the pathology of the gods.

    ————————————————————————————————

    Life used to be hard. People had to walk a mile to draw water. There was no refridgeration or canned foods. Now life is easy, but only in terms of life’s “basic necessities”.
    The “salvation” dynamic is quite the opposite:::We paid for our easy lives with our very souls.
    Life IS hard now. The gods have used their clone host tools to create the perception of evil rewarded (Italians, Japanese, etc) and then corrupted the disfavored with it. (Expect Asian Westernization is met with a European-style short memory span, allowing the gods to use their historical enemy, the Japanese, to corrupt Asians as they used the Italians to corrupt us).
    Before life was easier, more simple, innocent, pure. Employing these temptations ensured corruption is EXTREMELY difficult to overcome, a tactic which progressively ensures fewer disfavoreds repair their relationship with the gods.

    14 domesticable animals in the history of Planet Earth. None for Africa. In effect the gods were telling blacks:::::”Eat dirt.”
    Get a clue::::They don’t like you. They’re playing you for chumps.
    Blacks have forgotten their history. Italians preyed on them in the 20th century. They were slaves. The gods sent Pharroh in to rape, pillage and plunder.
    Jews have had a difficult history, but they developed empathy. As a result they tried to help the disfavored with 1492 exodus from Spain, scattered throughout Europe, etc.
    Blacks would be wise to examine this and try to emulate Jewish empathy.

    The clone hosting of Jesus.wav:::
    Much as we saw with another Mediterreanean prophet Mohammed the gods switched Jesus (good) and placed evil within the clone host so the gods could accomplish their goals::::Polygamy/misogyny and the creation of “savior” via Christianity.
    As I share:::Anytime the gods use their powers it is only to hurt you. “Miracles” are such an example. The gods only use their powers to disceive and mislead people as we all witness in different ways in each of our lives. Jesus’s miracles are a clue the gods were preying upon the disfavored.
    I suspect the teachings of good Jesus came in his 20s. Due to the unrespectability of Christianity, illustrated at least partially with Europe’s Sheep, I wonder if we ever did get a good Jesus before the age of 30.
    There is significant respectability among Muslims, and this may be reflected in the monagamous Mohammed.
    Every religion offers something which help people understand::: Reincarnation (Hindu), vengeful/wrathful god (Islam), etc.
    If you are afraid it is a good sign, for the gods are helping show you the right way to think. Don’t forget:::The gods lie to you, tell you Jesus is the “savior” but he floated up into the sky ALL ALONE!!! He didn’t save the disciples nor his precious mother. This is a clue from the gods helping you understand that you have to save yourselves.

    The Holocaust was foreshadowing.
    The gods established the pattern::::: the Jews sacrifice to help the disfavored understand::::
    1. 1492 exodus from Spain. Spain became evil – financed Columbus, initiated missionaries, USA (dumping ground of disfavored, victimized by god), etc.
    2. Spread throughout Europe as clue to Christians worshipping a false god.
    3. “Quasi-Holocaust claim” contradicting boss.
    4. 5. 6. 7. etc. etc. etc.
    I have put forth indisputable evidence, as you see above with the Jews. The gods will never admit any of it is true, ever, especially since THE BIGGEST JEWISH CLUE IS STILL OUTSTANDING::::THE HOLOCAUST!!!!!
    YOU HAVE TO DEFY!!!! The gods suggested the importance of defiance with the Holocaust:::The soldiers should have defied.
    They will lie to the disfavored up until the bitter end::::This tactic will ensure they claim a HUGE percentage of the disfavored, for so many refuse to defy and this will ensure they don’t go.
    When the REAL Holocuast happens people will sit by idley and watch tens of millions of blacks/cholos/white trash die, people who are the way they are (abusive, abrasive, violent, criminal) BECAUSE of their disfavor, and the computer makes them like that because of it, yet another reason why empathy is so important.
    The Jews showed you boss wasn’t going to happen with the Quasi-Holocaust claim. They will emphasize to the bitter end that there is no pattern of Jewish clues. They do so because there is still one clue outstanding, the most important clue:::::World War II’s Holocaust.
    The gods established the pattern:::The Jews sacrifice to help you understand::::1492 fled Spain, scattered throughout Europe to help the misled Christians understand, the Holocuast.
    The Jews sacrificed to show you boss wasn’t going to happen. When the Jews offer a clue you need to listen, and the Holocaust is the BIGGEST Jewish clue ever, the clue still outstanding.

    The Holocaust’s clue of defiance escaped you all:::::Everyone condemnes the blind obedience of the Nazi soldiers yet repeats this same behavior in your own personal lives, complying with every request they ask, even in the case of your precious children.
    ONE PURPOSE OF THE HOLOCAUST WAS TO COMMUNICATE THIS CLUE!!!! COMPLIANCE IS A MISTAKE!!!!!
    EVERYBODY does what they’re told, and look how bad society is deteriorated. THIS IS A CLUE!!!
    Telepathic requests constitute temptation.

    Much like matchmaking, much like so many social norms and mores the gods granted the people, they offered “prejudice” in the early days of this intermixing known as 20th century America.
    They told you to avoid Italians and blacks for good reason::::They are SO disfavored there is NOTHING either group won’t do. They will comply with every request. I know you people will too, in err, ignorant of or disregarding the god’s laws, but the difference was THE GODS WILL ASK THEM!!! You had too much favor for the gods to request such damaging behavior, at least until you became indecent too.
    Prejudice was good for everyone, for it ensured little opportunity for the gods to request, segregation and separation being common. It granted blacks especially more time to fix their problems and try to ascend, escaping this societal deterioration of the last 40+ years.
    As the people became increasingly indecent as the 20th century wore on so did we lose this precious benefit bestowed by the gods, opening the door for evil to befall us and for fatal evil to be incurred by the morbidly disfavored.
    Much like god’s law in holy books, “segregation” was favor bestowed upon the people::::The gods granted favor when they “segregated” us into our own areas of the world. This favor has been reversed not only within the context that is the United States but also with immigration witnessed throughout western Europe (and elsewhere?).
    Prior to civil rights blacks had their own press. In the absence of civil rights these entities would have grown into legitimate media outlets serving the black community.
    Maintaining segregation would have produced economic entities which arose from within the black community to fill the demand for goods and services.
    The presence of these “black industrialists” would have FORCED the gods to factor them into positioning, producing voices in support of the black community and preventing the gods from inflicting ALL THE SICKNESS WE HAVE WITNESSED IN THE last few decades::Crack babies, drive-by shootings, AIDS in Africa!!!
    The fastest growing industry in the ghetto is the oldest profession on Earth.

    The homosexual AIDS event happened because of their behavior in the SanFranciscio bathhouses.
    Italian claim to infamy is they destroyed life on earth. Irish claim is they prey on their own family members. Which one’s worse? Just as the gods targetted certain Italians for the degredation of life in the 20th century so did the do the same for the Irish, as I know all too well.
    Catholicism masculinized women. You have been warned:::CATHOLICS ARE BAD FOR YOU!!!

    I wonder how much the gods used the Green Bay geographic clue on the perpetually stupid Italians and used it to minimize abuses that otherwise would have ocurred?? “Sexual inadequecies of the men.” positioning may have justified “going easy” on a larger population of germans in the United States. All we need to do is look to blacks, enemies of the Roman Empire who were fucked wholesale, to see unabated abuses.
    The hypersexual laughing at superior life forms, ridiculing their favor.
    Incidentally, they share some of them will remain “perpetually stupid”. They are the Italians who crossed that line from person to preditor in the 30s, and they’re going to be on Planet Earth come Judgement Day, except in a non-Italian body, due to the god’s Manifest Destiny positioning of the New Roman Empire. Poetic justice.
    If I were king they would be the Italians who were pushed into it, for those who thought 1906 was a good idea would already be gone::::You suck.wav.

    Hell’s Angels is yet another element to emerge from Oakland, the upper incisor of TheBeast, designed for ripping and tearing flesh. One element that links TheDamned, no matter the skin color:::::Violence.

    Fifth Season of Simpsons.
    Moe in group therapy for general public at school. He has a thought of Moe as a child wondering why adult Moe doesn’t speak with his Italian accent anymore?
    They are filth. But they sent this clue when they shaped their country like a boot.
    Incidentally, Italy looks like a high-heeled transsexual’s boot. Don’t be surprised if this is a dumping ground for select individuals.
    The gods love their irony.
    Moe is like the Italians whom set up the San Fernando Valley as the pornography capital that it is.

    ————————————————————————————————

    The rebirth of the 20th century’s New Roman Empire is positioned to be a clue Christianity is the one true religion, contributing to the god’s Manifest Destiny positioning.
    It5 also worked as a WONDERFUL corruptor with Italians, the disfavored’s enemies who subscribed to this shit and intentionally paved the way for the impending Apocalypse with the social deterioration witnessed in the 20th century. This is probably where the reputation “Italians are stupid.” comes from. “Don’t let your daughters date Italians.” is something else.
    The gods offered you The Boot AS A WARNING TO AVOID THIS DANGER!!!

    Just as AA meetings proves the gods will enforce their psychoanalysis positioning so does Manifest Destiny/New Roman Empire proves they will enforce their Christianity positioning.
    Planet Earth will die EXACTLY as it reads in the Book of Revelations.
    I was never going to save you. Nobody is. Just as they created polygamy around Mohammed so did they create the perception of savior around Jesus, designed to distract you from the true purpose of the prophet Jesus.
    And now you won’t listen to me either.
    Due to the unrespectability of Christianity, illustrated at least partially with Europe’s Sheep, I wonder if we ever did get a good Jesus before the age of 30.
    There is significant respectability among Muslims, and this may be reflected in the monagamous Mohammed.

    Much as with the Sigmund Freud psychoanalysis positioning the gods will too enforce their Manifest Destiny/Christianity positioning.
    They created the theater by giving me things like Boss and movies and other elements of the $100 billion. Calling these entities on their evil negates the positioned support of these organizations, which is and always was the god’s strategy for closure in the Situation.
    They lie, say I “saved” evil Italians, whom they say would not have been going because of the evil they inflicted upon the disfavored. Fingering this Italian shit allows the gods to position wiping that slate clean::::
    The gods will create the perception of evil rewarded by managing good and evil within their clone host tools then corrupt the disfavored with it.

    This is all part of the god’s Manifest Destiny theater, created using these clone host tools whom they rotate on a schedule based on use.
    Just like Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalysis they will enforce their Manifest Destiny/Christianity positioning as well:::People aren’t homosexual. They’re not alcoholics. They’re pushed into wanting it. That there are AlcoholicsAnonymous meetings occuring all across the planet proves the gods are going to enforce this lie. Similarly, the gods used some of their tools within this economic system to illustrate an “appeasement” of their Manifest Destiny superiors through preditory behavior upon enemies of this new “Roman Empire”.

    ————————————————————————————————

    Asians are the gods most favored race. It is evident in their uniformity. It is evident in their cultures.
    The gods place high barriers to entry for (some) Asians into the United States. This is yet another good example of reverse positioning, for the gods are really trying to protect those whom they grant favor upon.
    There are no barriers to entry for Latinos.
    When white people capitalize or exploit Asians they incurr and one day will be punished. This includes Chinese buffet restaurants, so prevalient in disfavored cities and the Southern United States, for the gods hate these people and want them to incurr.

    US popular culture is obsence. Intentionally. The gods are preying on the disfavored who remain, those foolish enough to participate.
    The Chinese have favor and the gods allow the government to protect the citizens, but Chinese cut-off is fast approaching, for soon westernization will level this playing field as well.
    This is yet another “BIG LIE” they sold to the disfavored, and it will ensure the homogination of Earth’s cultures via westernization.

    The gods still make effort through the Chinese government to protect the Chinese people. We hear about it in the United States, their Manifest Destiny/reverse positioning is used to label it “human rights violations”, paving the way for cancer that is democracy.
    Much as we saw in the United States regarding matchmaking, midwivery, female conservative dress and other topics, this tactic will slowly deteriorate this protection until China is completely infested with Westernization.

    If you lived in a communisitic state your 10 year old son wouldn’t be able to see pornographic images on the internet. The government would have filters in place to protect the people from this damaging behavior.
    Much like alcoholism, much like homosexuality the gods punish the people with magic.
    These desires you have are going to keep you out. I recommend you begin working on your problems, for if you don’t and are among those who are invited to Planet (Temptation) Manifest Destiny it will be very difficult, for life is fueled by magic up there, and if you don’t think right you won’t be staying for long.

    The gods are sending a clue Yahoo is good with this Chinese censorship issue.
    The American idea of freedom is a shock rocker anally masterbating with a crucifix. This is what the disfavored are free to enjoy in this open society, and due to their disfavor a certain percentage will either be pushed into it or will comply, ensuring damnation. It’s kind of like the KKK and Apartheid issue below except for whites of the modern era, or how democracy ensures a false sense of security.

    Like other groups the gods have offered temptations the Chinese must avoid. There are specific temptations targetted to the Chinese, very concerning in light of god’s Manifest Destiny positioning:::Exploiting the corporate establishment allows the gods to position exclusion:::
    1. Piracy (movies, software, etc).
    2. Gambling, very popular among Asians (unrespectability).
    3.
    Chinese censorship is an important benefit the gods bestowed. The communisit government protects the people from damaging media, so destructive in the West and particularly the United States:::Our 9-year-old children are free to view internet pornography, allowing the gods to justify creating disturbing pathologies with Artificial Intelligence as the children age.
    These strict enviornments help the disfavored think correctly, foster fear, enabling them to have an improved relationship with the gods, the “kings with the iron fist” in the sky.
    In an environment like theirs it is relatively easy to identify the corruptors among them:::Knowingly or not they actively lobby against this environment which seeks to preserve the China of old. Use these clues as you would the god’s geographic clues, Italy’s Boot and the Scandanavian penis, and avoid the god’s tools of corruption.

    As China came “on-line” industrially, favored redwhite&blue’s repression of alternative technologies is being felt hard.
    They are positioned to have repressed non-fossil fuel technologies (like cold fusion. “That story meant something.” c.1999?). As a result China industrialization has initiated fossil-fuel power plants, dirty coal-fired plants, instead of immediately implimenting clean power sources based on these new technologies.
    Without these technologies in place for Chinese industrialization we lost our chance to control the runaway warming which is now positionable. And, as you know, when the disfavored open a door allowing the gods to inflict misery they use it.
    This may have been the defining moment, god’s clue to the disfavored showing that the world is going to die.

    You’re no longer Asian enjoying this rich culture. You are Westernized.
    This year China experienced the misery of climate change with the extreme winter weather:::The gods will express their displeasure through Acts of god.wav. Don’t be surprised if they are communicating this as well at the United States’ biggest Chinese New Year parade in San Francisco:::HEAVY rain forecast for parade Saturday night February 23rd.
    After parade:::Because I used this paragraph prior to the event the gods may have been affected the outcome, minimizing the impact of the storm so my audience didn’t take this warning the gods had to offer, creating doubt and reducing my credibility among the Chinese.
    They’re paving the way for the Apocalypse with a “leveling of the playing field” event.

    Incidentally, they’ve shared that Asian’s appearance, which one can construe as evil, has significance.
    I am personally of the opinion that Asians are god’s favored race. The conformity, the learned cultures all suggest superiority.
    Perhaps they are used much like the germans, a people whom the gods offer a clue through their language:::As enforcer of decency.
    Your abuse of resources is being bettered exponentially, maliciously (courtesy of respression of alternative technologies), and the result will be global calamity.

    You white people capitalizing in China are fucking crazy (just like the insane white men who date Japanese women). You fail to recognize the historical pattern and you will suffer for exploiting the Chinese:::
    – Death Valley borax mines abused the Chinese and great misery befell them.
    – The fisheries on Monterey’s Cannery Row exploited the Chinese badly. Cannery Row remains a rebar-studded, uncompleted eyesore for decades as a clue.
    The gods are preying on you and using the evil company you work for to accomplish this. Everytime you exploit the Chinese you are losing time and priveledge on the other planets.

    The favor in Korea lies in the North. Association withe United States is ALWAYS a bad sign.
    The Korean war ironically was a war against the South, designed to corrupt the disfavored of Korea. I suspect Vietnam may have been justified by the war against these favored peoples:::”You want to fight? Very well. Fight these people.” The Vietnamese are morbidly disfavored who will fight to the bitter end of course (see below).

    There have been many changes in India over the last 20+ years, most surrounding Westenization.
    Too many still don’t understand Westernization is a bad thing, a way the gods abuse the disfavored and level the playing field for all, ensuring their script is justified.
    My advice is to keep fresh in your memory the old ways, for the gods illustrate that “new is evil” while “old is good”.
    Beware their corruptors. They placed them throughout society as America emerged and became strong. Don’t let them weaken your moral fortitude. The gods placed them then use Artificial Intelligence to telepathically reinforce this corruption. This is their purpose. If you can identify these individuals you can avoid them and protect yourself from a corrupting environment.
    Earth is where the gods test people. People from India are lucky enough to have received “extra time” to ascend before the gods employed all these corrupting elements. This means the old ways are still fresh in your mind. Never forget them because they can help you.

    They share Hindus (and Muslim from India as well) are being corrupted by money.
    Don’t forget my example::::Infanticide justifies Chinese Westernization. Chinese Westernization justifies an American-style “short memory span”.
    The Chinese and Asians knew who their enemy was. Thousands of years of warmongering engrained the Japanese as enemies of peace-loving people. However, with the advent of Westernization the gods now are corrupting the Asians, ironically using the Japanese as role models in the process.
    They are becoming corrupted. They’ve suggested Indians are being corrupted with money in this new era. The result will be simmilar American-style abuses upon the disfavored.
    Between the two countries they make up half of Earth’s population. The gods are preparing for a full-blown Apocalypse event.

    Think about the changes that have ocurred in India in the last 20 years. Better understanding the destructive changes the gods implimented can help you avoid danger.

    ANY GROUP WHICH EMBRACES PATERNALISTIC SUERIORITY IS GROSSLY DISFAVORED::::
    1. Italians
    2. Latinos
    3. Muslims
    4. Mormons
    5. Japanese
    6. The Southern man & rednecks
    7.
    8. Other Catholic:::Irish, Philipino, Vietnamese?? Catholic women are masculinized.
    Note the incredible wealth of some of these groups. The gods are using them as corruptors.

    The gods use their tools to attack the Southern man, be it alcohol, the celebration of smoking, the complete devotion to guns and resistance, and their adoration of speed and horsepower. “There’s all kinds of stuff.” Paternalistic superiority. Celebration of the Prohibition era/illegal bootlegging as culture. The masculinization of women. Celebration of “Stars and Bars”. Their perpetual music genre. Carnivoristic preferences. The celebration of infidelity. Their head-strong nature.
    The gods used the 1980s televangelist incidents to promote godlessness among these people, a blow they couldn’t afford to take.
    Reality check:::The gods have it out for you. At least I hope this breaks that ice and helps you understand the task before you. You should be very alarmed that the gods have chose to employ such extensive use of temptation in an otherwise rural region.
    I suspect your numbers won’t be good due to your grave disfavor.
    The more god-fearing you are, the more religious you are about attending service, the more modest and humble and the recognition that women are your superior will all go a LONG WAY towards the gods finding mercy enough to allow help.

    The Spainish were Catholic like the Italians and Irish yet I don’t recall them experiencing the same clues from the gods, clues warning people of their gross disfavor (stereotypes and discrimination).
    Due to Spain’s phenominal destruction in Latin America with conquistadors and missionary work I wonder if the gods continually use this to corrupt the Spanish to this day? They certainly do with Latinos.
    Spain did pay for Columbus, right? Expect a connection. This is a Church issue rather than an Italian issue of course.
    The gods employ their “middle management” tactic, as we all witness. Expect their positioning to continue into the past::::
    I’ve mentioned before the “seamless” transistion between Cleopatra and Julius Ceasar. Perhaps they position this as if there was contact with Pharroh and they gave management duties to Egypt, who went on to use Italy, the Catholic Church, etc. in the course of their management.
    Of course none of this is true, but it was utilized extensively during the 20th century. They may continue witrh this scapegoatting, “middle management” positioning::::Milky Way quadrant, Milky Way, universal quadrant, universal. They are effective tactics, ensuring people do not become god-fearing.
    Sadly, consistant with the deterioration of society, necessary for justification, today people KNOW the gods run the show, and illustrating the evil they employ on the disfavored corrupts people very badly. They think god is evil, and they behave consistant with that belief. Now we have a planet on a collision course with the Apocalypse, and the gods set it all up perfectly that now it is justified.

    Cartoon in editorial ridiculing W, standing in front of a depiction of a god of fertility, for bringing his message of abstenence to a hypersexual people.
    Black people are their own worst enemy. Their goodies have gotten them into big trouble.
    They’ve shared they got something special and they threw it away. Expect this focus on their goodies to have intiated this change, however long ago.
    Consistant with their methodology, perhaps there is some truth to this “You’re really #1.” positioning they sell to blacks. Once.

    The Boot has fucked you twice, once by destroying life in the 20th century, another by costing you the Final Prophet:::The gods got their tools into position then maintain their positioning telepathically with Artificial Intelligence.
    The Boot fucked blacks twice, once with the murder and destruction of these supposed “Roman enemies”, another with the “thugification” of blacks, resulting in this degenerate black popular culture/society.
    I fear the gods intend to use the enemy of peace-loving Asian people, the Japanese, to inflict misery twice:::Once historically, as the warmongers the Japanese have historically been and then once again as role models, held up as the ideal to Asians, corrupted by Westernization and capitalism. The gods punish Asians for embracing Westernization/capitalism by instructing Artificial Intelligence to use the wealthy Japanese as role models for “profitable” behavior.
    This is the era of telepathic abuse. Whereas before these groups “got their hands dirty” now the gods use their positioning in place to finish the job off::::::
    The gods create preferences/request black people embrace the Italian “thug life”.
    The gods telepathically execute the elements of this theater, ensuring people aren’t receptive to my message. Much as we see with Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalysis the gods will enforce their Manifest Destiny positiong as well.

    Black popular culture has embraced the charecteristics of their victimizers:::The “thug life”.
    “Drive-by shootings” origins are Italian.
    The gods will reincarnate sexist men as pigs.

    The difference between life in Europe vs the United States is similar to life in the suburbs vs the ghetto:::
    Both the US and the ghetto have increased temptations, opportunities for people to hurt themselves and the result is both are far less decent.
    The United States is less decent because this is where the gods sent the disfavored, the rejects from Europe, and those foolish enough to comply and leave on request.

    25 years ago they made a telepathic announcement:::::”Black people have to try harder, do better than everybody else.” This means no parties, no drinking, no drugs, no sex.

    Just like Malcolm X & the Black Panthers, the Che Guevara event happened to prey upon Latinos.
    Among others.

    Latino homosexual explosion.
    Like the NewWorld Catholic Philipinos. Look for it.
    They may play it like they do blacks, but I don’t think I’d take great comfort in this.

    You need to understand the subtle, inferred way the gods communicate to people and begin to trust it::::::
    The tiger killed the Latino. Now you understand where the gods hold Latinos in their heirarchy.
    And expect both Muslims AND Hindus to be ranked above the unrespectable Catholics, incidentally.
    Is this a clue to try to help them understand the gods hold them in such low regard? Is this a clue to Latinos to NOT fall into the same mindset which they sold to blacks? Of course ignorant blacks think they’re great. Quite the opposite it true:::The Black Panthers are part of that “upper incisor of The Beast” clue, designed for ripping and tearing flesh.
    Don’t be surprised if they are offering foreshadowing with this event. They may be sharing that Latinos will be very poorly represented while Hindus/Indian Muslims will take a painful hit.
    Perhaps it means if Latinos don’t ascend before the Apocalypse they won’t be going.

    I made the zoo a winter wonderland. I’d trust the relevance here.
    They parked Wilma on top of the southwest part of Cozumel FOR TWO FULL DAYS for the same reason, but with far more destructive results.

    Fucking indecent horse racing commericals. They disappeared but now they’re back.
    I kinda like the one where she smacks him after seeing the “Misty” tattoo. “Some Latinos are getting in trouble because of that.” Fantasizing about how they’d beat her half to death if it were them???
    Don’t forget::::The gods will reincarnate sexist men as pigs. Expect they have something extra special for then men who get violent with women.

    Cuban-Castro tension::::You don’t want to hear what I have to say.
    Either you’re sell-out whores doing what you’re told like other morbidly disfavored or the god’s positioning has been VERY effective on you. Explanation::::
    1. You are inferior to your people in the motherland. By very nature of your being in the United States this is true:::The family members with favor remained in Cuba. The gods sent each country’s rejects to America then created an enviornment which preys upon them.
    2. I think the gods forced Cuban communism to send a clue to the disfavored of the United States. I believe Cubans are NOT FAVORED ENOUGH TO BE COMMUNISTS and that’s why the gods employed compensatory elements to make you pay for something you are not worthy of:::
    a. Any culture with baseball is grossly disfavored.
    b. Music is revelry. Earth is where the gods test people. Parties hurt you.
    Salsa may be the absolute greatest music form on Planet Earth, and it has served not only as a distraction but an enormous source of pride, pride detrimental to a good relationship with the gods.
    I have other comments about communism and its implications below. Don’t forget::::The gods will reincarnate sexist men as pigs. Expect they have something extra special for then men who get violent with women.

    If you lived in a communisitic state your 10 year old son wouldn’t be able to see pornographic images on the internet. The government would have filters in place to protect the people from this damaging behavior.
    Much like alcoholism, much like homosexuality the gods punish the people with magic.
    These desires you have are going to keep you out. I recommend you begin working on your problems, for if you don’t and are among those who are invited to Planet (Temptation) Manifest Destiny it will be very difficult, for life is fueled by magic up there, and if you don’t think right you won’t be staying for long.

    Dreamcatchers. Wisdom from Native Americans.
    Dreams are a bad thing. They shared this with me right before they began to increase the number of my dreams. I suspect they used this as an example that my new, vivid dreams are punishment.
    I suspect the gods consider dreams bad because the alternative is an awakened experience.
    Girls granted favor will receive their experience awake. Boys (and disfavored girls) will experience the gods imparting wisdom while asleep, subject to the computer making these individuals forget, as happens so frequently after dreams.

    Native Americans have a problem with paternalistic superiority, among other things:::
    1. NO DOMESTICABLE ANIMALS
    2. Essentially eliminated from the face of the Earth
    3. Warmongering tribes.
    I wonder what their intent with dreamcatchers was? Was it gender non-specific??? Or was this symbol’s intent specifically for the females among a disfavored peoples whose females had a problem catching their favor???

    The Jews are Mediterreanean. This means they are fucked.
    I don’t think the Jews are the most favored of Meditereaneans. I think they just have the best religion.
    Jews are HIGHLY corruptable by money. The 20th century proves this. Their role in promoting social poison in the 60s indicts them. Also I think the gods sent this clue in the movie The Ten Commandments.
    Hairy is a bad sign. They say big nose is a bad sign. Both are appearance issues, perhaps can be interpreted as the look of evil upon their face.
    So many Meditereanean charecteristics are clues helping people understand to avoid them, similar to the geographical clues of The Boot and the Scandanavian penis.

    ————————————————————————————————

    You need to understand that there is a price to be paid for your cooperation within the context of the god’s positioning.
    They instill tactics EVERYWHERE ensuring a difficult testing procedure, for the reward is great. Signing on to this lie IS a tactic, and it will ensure a percentage of people fail. “Intentional foreclosure” and telling people it is acceptable to steal are two examples of temptations which will cause your Damnation.
    Of those who succeed the gods STILL require you to behave appropriately. If you fall prey to the temptations of Planet Manifest Destiny you too will ultimately perish.
    Nobody is going to “lead you out”. This is bullshit Book of Revelations Christianity positioning. Because this is their positioning this event WILL occur, but only among a pre-selected group, designed for theatrical purposes only.
    I won’t lead anyone out. This is not what I teach. You all are responsible for your own relationship with the gods, and failure to take responsibility will result in your exclusion.

    The gods want to play both sides of the coin.
    It is very important the gods maintain this perception of “middle management”, for if people knew management was just the gods and their computer they would become very frightened considering the carnage and what it says about their plans, and this fear would help them to think correctly.
    They would be on the “fast-track” to salvation.
    The gods created this environment of CEOs, kings and democracy specifically to defeat this and work very hard to maintain it.
    People teetering on Damnation think god is evil and believe evil is the way. This is called “segmentation”::::They don’t see the importance of temptation nor the god’s role or methodology in punishment::::Ironically the gods DON’T punish evil for their wickedness. These people are not wanted and the gods don’t want them to receive the feedback punishment would provide.
    I hope people in Enterprise, Alabama have become “god-fearing”, experiencing the wrath of god firsthand. Sadly, the gods will use tactics to ensure they don’t become god-fearing, telling many of them that because the tornado was because of me they “earned” and now I have to “bring them up”::::
    Because the gods scapegoat me they think I owe them all. As a result this experience goes wasted.
    There are other tactics the gods use, for example telling parents their dead soldiers “ascended”, “were clones”, etc. All are desiogned as a tactic, ensuring they do not become god-fearing.
    The gods lie freely. They will say anthing in the context of temptation. If people in Enterprise understood this they would be more likely to overcome this temptation and become god-fearing. Sadly most believe what they are told and this precious opportunity will pass without effect.
    Temptation is very important. “Heaven” is an exclusive place and you can’t get in for free.

    The gods will use their tools to create the perception of evil rewarded then corrupt the disfavored with it.
    It’s important that you differentiate between your own thoughts and when the computer thinks through you.

    The god’s computer conducts this theater. In err you do what they tell you. So does president, CEO/BOD, Italian gangsters. Sadly the gods will turn around and use this as a corruptor:::”CEO does everything he’s told and he has BILLIONS!!!”
    If one of these clone host tools “comes around”, realizes they made a mistake and finally musters the courage to tell the gods “No.” they will get that person out and put in somebody who will tell them “Yes.”. The individual who told them “No.” has successfully navigated temptation. Unfortunately, punishment can be a temptation via deterrent, and the gods may choose to employ this tactic to test the candidate in their next placement.
    This is a constantly deteriorating enviornment. This is one reason why they waited to reincarnate so many clone hosts from the 20th century:::
    1. To use the morbidly disfavored to accomplish these important goals in this century and
    2. In this abjectly corrupt, godless environement few have a real chance.
    They corrupted Italians with 1906 then told these Italians it was the godfather ordering them to plan WWII, kill blacks, corrupt and destroy society. Now people know better (opening the door to other types of corruption:::Evil god), but these Italians experienced an “early cut-off” and got their hands very dirty because of it, illustrating their grave disfavor.
    Before WorldWarII began the gods sold many people on clone hosting, not just Italians. This would represent a “cut-off” for the non-Italians sold on “earning” and initiated into clone hosting, for clone hosting gives the gods the freedom to place at their discretion. Many non-Italians were placed into these Italian bodies to continue the destruction of society in the 20th century, for the gods couldn’t justify their involvement within the context of Manifest Destiny positioning otrherwise, Manifest Destiny being the New Roman Empire.
    There is a big difference when clone hosts are evil, people who are placed into bodies by god, and when real people engage in evil. Of course the gods can minimize this culpability they accept by gaining consent prior to placement.

    The gods use these preditor clone hosts tools to manage their justification and culpability::::
    These aren’t even real people. They abandoned their bodies, losing their identies in the process, a consequence of succumbing to this temptation.
    They’re just entities, brains “floating” around out there until the gods chose to place them into a body. They are sub-human, second-class citizens, inferior individuals, and should be beneath ALL reals.
    These families were sold on clone hosting and got out prior to World War II. Their grandfathers and family who entered clone hosting were reals. But abandoning their bodies for this temptation carries consequences, and the loss of identity is one.
    When these clone hosts have children they are not real people. As such they won’t ever ascend because there was nobody associated with these bodies. There was a first placement, someone who may have been a primary (time) placement, but this is not relevant. A series of individuals were routed through that body, and after a few placements even they forget where they were, god’s clue to these individuals that “earning” is a lie, since they can’t remember where they were placed.
    People who agree to abandon their bodies and become evil continue to incurr not only from their direct actions as clone hosts but also from the evil their original body (blood line) inflicts onothers. This is a matter of preparation, for if they sell them on “earning” before they depart the gods are justified in using these original bodies in the context of evil, ensuring they pay twice, ironically.

    There is a difference between these clone hosts, so many of which abandoned their bodies in the 30s out of desperation (women) or thinking they were “earning” (men), and when the gods take liberties upon the disfavored, not placing a brain in a child until later for stategic purpose. This served as an intense corruptor for those disfavored people. The frequency is higher among the most disfavored among us (Italian, Irish, black, Latino, etc) than people that are not nearly as disfavored.
    Think of it in terms of the Black War I::::The gods developed these bodies without brains specifically because they had preditory Italian trash from the mid 20th century whom they wanted to employ poetic justice upon. Becasuse of the indecency of the blacks involved the gods felt taking the liberty was justified. The result was the child that never was.

    The gods get their clone host tools into place and tell them what to do, just like all you, in err. But these are not real people and their mistakes don’t matter as much. They’re not staying for long anyways.
    Clone hosts aren’t even real people. They abandoned their bodies, losing their identity in the process, a consequence of succumbing to this temptation.

    It was actually almost freezing last night….glad I didn’t get those azaleas for the front yet…viewing your photos of them has me longing for some of my own. I am planning to get some this weekend ;)

    Cute poem and I love the flowers. I can’t wait until ours start to bloom. Happy Spring!

    All the pretty flowers are such a feast for the eyes. And your poem is lovely.

    A breath of fresh air and a lovely scent in this poem.

    takes your very breath away!…. azaleas are flowers with color beyond my comprehension….

    I’m hooked. Loved it.

    This is so great: I love the energy and triumph in this poem. It is so positive. It reminds me of Bach somehow.

  13. TeriCon 25 Mar 2008 at 11:00 pm 13

    Love this command for spring to make an appearance.

Manic Monday: Egg

Posted at 12:01 am under Manic Monday

Scroll down for Weekend Snapshot, or click here.

egg3_200x154.jpgOur Manic Monday host Mo has given us the word “egg” this week. Being Easter week, that shouldn’t be too difficult, but perhaps just a bit too easy. Paranoid? Perhaps.

So I wondered, what egg stories did I have that didn’t involve cute little Easter Egg hunts growing up, or my nephew’s Easter Egg hunts, which were way better because they got money hidden in their eggs. Oh yeah, actual “In God We Trust” Cashola! SisterDear would put coins in some and in some she would deposit bills. Sometimes she’d even put in tickets to the Red Sox game!! SisterDear2 is very cool! But she wouldn’t let me hunt for eggs, so some cool points had to be deducted for that.

Then I recalled a day a few years ago that I was having a bunch of friends over for a Gathering. One of my guests, the very sassy wife of a co-worker, brought me a very unusual Hostess Gift. She brought me a basket of freshly laid eggs, straight from “her girls” that very morning!! She has chickens, laying hens in fact, that she originally got as chicks one Easter to delight her grandchildren.

Now, I ask you, how often have you had eggs THAT fresh? The trouble for me was, since I knew the chickens personally, I found myself unable to actually eat the eggs. Yeah, I’m just weird that way.

  1. Mybellaviaon 24 Mar 2008 at 6:26 am 1

    We hide about 24 eggs every easter. Sometimes, I will find one when I get around to cleaning a week or two later. A bonus for mom! No red sox tickets in ours, only peanut free candy! It’s not as good as finding money in the washing machine though!

    I am with you on the “I can’t eat the eggs cause I knew it’s mother thing”. Good thing for us we didn’t grow up on a farm, huh?

  2. Sannion 24 Mar 2008 at 8:48 am 2

    Red Sox ticke? I want that egg! :-)

    I can definitely releate you were not able to eat the eggs…
    that´s the reason why I buy them on a farmers market and not at my friend´s farm!

    Happy Manic Easter Monday!

  3. Kat’s Krackerboxon 24 Mar 2008 at 10:01 am 3

    We had an Easter egg hunt on Saturday for the grandkids! They had lots of fun. I’ve added you to my blogroll. Have a great week!

  4. Ivanhoeon 24 Mar 2008 at 10:09 am 4

    I have not had a fresh egg from a hen in years. Last time I can remember it was at our summer house back in Czech Republic – our neighbors had hens. It has been almost 20 years…

  5. Villageron 24 Mar 2008 at 11:09 am 5

    Happy MM! I’m a straight-up city boy, so I’ve never had eggs that fresh in my life (smile)…

    As usual, my response this week to the MM meme takes Mo’s word to a different place that is unique to the African American culture.

    peace, Villager

  6. kaceyon 24 Mar 2008 at 11:19 am 6

    Nope, no really fresh eggs here. One never found Easter Egg though, from the Easter egg hunt for my cousin’s kids… I guess we’ll find it eventually ;-)

  7. Comedy Pluson 24 Mar 2008 at 11:51 am 7

    Wow, your sister rocks. That’s some cool stuff. Oh, I’ll take those fresh eggs. Yummy. Have a great MM. :)

  8. Nancy Liedelon 24 Mar 2008 at 3:22 pm 8

    Whate a great hostess gift. I have to admit. I can cook with the eggs we buy from the egg-lady, but it feels a little weird to cook them. Which is odd, cause they are so good.

  9. sarge charlieon 24 Mar 2008 at 4:15 pm 9

    I want tickets. nice egg

  10. Aliceon 24 Mar 2008 at 4:50 pm 10

    I used to have eggs that fresh every day… sigh. I do so miss my own `girls`. I`ve actually given a basket of fresh eggs as a hostess gift before too, haha.

    Happy Manic Easter Monday.

  11. Moon 24 Mar 2008 at 5:15 pm 11

    I raised hens for the eggs. I could never eat the hens, but I had no problem eating the eggs!
    Thanks for participating in Manic Mondays!
    Cheers,
