Got Milk

When you are having a bad day with Asthma issues, stop at grocery store and buy your favourite non cow milk you expect to be able to drink it not puke it out as it is curdled bad!!!

People were wondering how I was doing, how is that for an answer! Plus the new meds to help me deal with the Fibromyalgia/Arthritis/Breathing/Feet issues are still giving me problems, so all in all I guess that I am normal.

KEEP SMILING LIE AND SAY EVERYTHING IS FINE

ps. as an addendum I just noticed a lot of those little bugs you get in a kitchen. Could not find any food dropped or behind something or bad either. Well I picked up the raisin bread, stuck my hand in to get a couple of slices for lunch and was swarmed! Bread is two days old, now in the garbage, so food and me are not on speaking terms right now until I get an apology or break down and need more food. (sounds kinda like a bad marriage!!)

A Revolutionary Moment rebloged

I like this as well and will Reblog this too! Thank you for being so thoughtful and insightful grammomsblog!

Re-blogged with permission from Adbusters May 28, 2013 ‘World War 3 is Nigh’by Steve Biddulph, Adjunct Professor of Counselling at Cairnmillar Institute, Melbourne, Australia and author of Raising GirlsRaising Boys, and The New Manhood, among others. He lives in the Tamar Valley. This is an excerpt from his article in the Tasmanian Times.

“World War One, we are told, began with the shooting of an Archduke. Within four years, eight million men were dead. It was a clash of empires, fought over coalfields and colonies, there was no good side, despite what the chaplains on both sides said. The men and boys from a hundred thousand villages were poured into the grinder because they were available, the surplus harvest of empire.”

“The Second World War arose from the injustice of the first. Poverty and shame drove people to Fascism. This time the whole planet was a battlefield. 40 million died.”

“The Cold War that followed hung in the balance through thirty years of nuclear threat, which we carefully and gradually stepped back from. We are learning.”

“The Third World War will not be fought with guns. It’s the battle for the earth, not its ownership this time, but its existence. Who would have thought that of all the shortages our profligate living would lead to, it would be the very coolness and calmness of our planet’s skies. ”

“Today unprecedented storms, droughts, fires, floods and famines, have begun to stalk the earth. Both the Russian, and American wheat crops have failed in two consecutive years. (The Arab Spring was driven not by democracy but by hunger – food prices worldwide have doubled, and the poor are the ones who take the brunt). Farmers are right now walking off West Australian wheat farms through endless drought. There is a single cause to all of this; atmospheric carbon is now higher than for millions of years. We have passed the safe point of 350 ppm, at which temperature growth can be contained, and are headed for 400 and beyond – there isn’t an upper limit. The result is that the radiative cooling power of the atmosphere is being lost. ”

“ It’s called “greenhouse” for a reason. Shut the doors on a greenhouse, let it broil in the sun, and you will know what that means.”

“ Every season brings its dangers now; the TV news is like a disaster movie. And fortunately, finally, people are starting to wake up. ”

“A conflict of massive proportions has already begun. Fossil fuel industries are the most powerful industries in the world, and they aren’t going to be stopped by legislation or negotiation, at least, not in time. So we need a new, different kind of war.”

“The Third World War will be fought not with guns, but with people putting their finances, their energies, their arguments, their boycotts, and probably their bodies in the way of the coal trains and ships and the mines that feed them. It will be a war of the little against the big. Big Coal, Big Oil, Big Food, and Big Media. All have grown fat while we fed at their table. Not realizing the cost of our holidays in Bali, our kid’s school trips to Paris, our commutes to football matches interstate or jobs two thousand miles from home. Our tank-like cars and airconditioned McMansions broiling in the sun. Our agriculture that is nothing more than oil turned into fertilizer turned into food. ”

“ Its such a revolutionary moment. Everything that anyone cares about – animals, wilderness, farming, refugees, peace, safety, freedom from terrorism, health, culture, heritage, but most of all – our children’s and their children’s ability to eat, breathe, support themselves, and not die in chaos, depends on this one single cause. ”

“If you are reading this and aged under forty, you may see billions of needless deaths in your lifetime, including perhaps your own. Because of the inescapable reality of this, almost beyond our cognitive powers to absorb, we have to stop the carbon madness. ”

“There has to be a transition, considered, phased, and rational, but above all planetary and radically fast. We have to execute a 180 degree turn in how we run the world’s machine.”

“My generation has seen and created change. We’ve stopped wars, we’ve faced down corporations and won. We’ve gotten rid of bad politicians and consigned the two party duopoly to the garbage bin of history. Like many of my activist friends I am old, and feel the freedom of not overly caring about my own comfort. Future generations becomes more and more the center of our concerns. ”

“I believe that nonviolence is essential, that gentle means must always be used first, and second and third. But gentle means can also be powerful, and absolute. We would not stand by and let murder happen without stepping in. Thats exactly what is happening when coal ships sail from our shores on their journey to creating famine, fire and flood. I don’t know what to do. But I am starting to ask around. ”

“The Third World War will be for the earth, and I know whose side I am on. ”

Movie A Common Man Review

Movie
A Common Man
Staring Sir Ben Kingsley and Ben Cross

Finally a movie about Terrorists that is worth watching!
Terrorize the terrorists, kill the ….

10/10

This is a movie made overseas not a Hollywood movie and not a Bollywood movie
THIS is worth watching and thinking over !!!
No I am not going to tell you anything more except, this is a terrorist movie that I recommend, this is a course of action I think is valid, watch and think. No I do not agree with everything that happened, but do you think the climax would have happened if the events did not happen the way they did?

OUTSTANDING

find information on Sir Ben Kingsley here

addendum: I purchased the movie because of the actors, though I dreaded watching the movie  to be totally honest. How could a man like him play a terrorists in such a third world setting without giving rise to more terrorists.
Well Sir, I should have much more faith in you, to play an anti-terrorists was outstanding and was something I did not see coming and I applaud you for it SIR !

Thank you and your words whilst on the phone to the police near the end, may they fall on the right ears forever more, as a former soldier I pray!
With Respect and honour to you, a fan ~wild_E

The Mayonnaise Jar of Life

Re-blogging this one, this is so apropos N’est-ce pas

The Mayonnaise Jar

When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day is not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar and two cups of coffee.

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him.

When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and fills it with golf balls.

He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured it into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls.

He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else.

He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous “YES”.

The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed.

“Now,” said the professor, as the laughter subsided, “I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things – God, family,
children, health, friends, and favorite passions. Things, that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the things that matter like your job, house, and car. The sand is everything else — the small stuff.” he said.

“If you put the sand into the jar first,” he continued, “There is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are
important to you…” he told them.

“So… pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Worship with your family. Play with your children. Take your partner out to dinner. Spend time with good friends. There will always be time to clean the house and fix the dripping tap. Take care of the golf balls first — the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.”

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented.

The professor smiled and said, “I’m glad you asked. It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there’s always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend.”

Please share this with other “Golf Balls”

New Header Pic

I like looking at clouds any time of the day, but my favourite time of the day is Sunrise and Sunset.

My Grandmother once told me that the rays of light you see are the souls going up to Heaven. It is a nice thought and comforting to see as well.
In this picture which is the end of my driveway, well to be exact it is across the road from the end of my driveway and a great source of contentment for me as well.

I give this image to the world so you may see one of my views, thus preserving in our minds a shared image of such natural beauty.
Dedicated to R & D across the world from Zelda and I, so enjoy a little Canadian Sunshine from us to you.

CHEERS to all.

Sunset time with the souls returning to whence they came.
