A little funny

A cute little joke I snagged from Backwoods home:

A group of Indians came to their chief and asked "Will it be a bad winter?" The chief, who was young, had not paid attention to the elders and did not know the signs. He told them to go start cutting firewood and he would tell them when they returned. He then snuck off and consulted the National Weather Service. He asked them, "Will it be a bad winter?"

"Probably," was the answer.

When the men returned the chief told them it would be a bad winter and to go cut more firewood. Just to be sure, the chief called the Weather Service again and asked, "Are you sure it's going to be a bad winter?"

"It looks like it," was the answer.

So when the woodcutters returned he again sent them out to cut more wood. Once more he called the Weather Service and asked, "Are you really sure it's going to be a bad winter?"

"Yes. A very bad winter," they said.

"How do you know?" asked the chief.

"Because the Indians are cutting wood like crazy!"

There are floods in at least three countries:





Too bad we can't send the flood water to China. Do you think we are having more disasters or we just have more people so they seem worse?

sharks swimming the streets!

As if the flood waters weren't bad enough for the people of Queensland, it now appears that there are sharks swimming in the streets. Two bull sharks were spotted swimming past a McDonald’s in the city of Goodna, Butcher Steve Bateman saw another making its way past his shop on Williams street. Ipswich councillor for the Goodna region Paul Tully said: "It would have swam several kilometres in from the river, across Evan Marginson Park and the motorway. It’s definitely a first for Goodna, to have a shark in the main street."


Dinner anyone? Maybe they just wanted a Big Mac.

is someone trying to get our attention?

Ok, there has been dead birds, dead fish, dead crabs, and now we have 200 dead cows.

hmmmm, yet "large groups of animals dying is NOT uncommon"????

Here is the story of the dead cows.

I'll let you draw your own conclusions.

Is this the new PC for a surrogate mommy?

"Keith Urban, Nicole Kidman and their two-year old daughter Sunday Rose, today announced a new addition to their family, Faith Margaret Kidman Urban. Born through a gestational carrier at Nashville's Centennial Womens Hospital on December 28, 2010, Faith Margaret is Urban and Kidman's biological daughter.


congrats on the baby!

I can't help but wonder if it was necessary or if it was a vanity reason...

where was YOUR medicine tested and under what restrictions?

Once upon a time, the drugs Americans took to treat chronic diseases, clear up infections, improve their state of mind, and enhance their sexual vitality were tested primarily either in the United States (the vast majority of cases) or in Europe. No longer.


Now I do not take any prescription drugs....YET -but I have to in the future and this is scary to ME and I'm not easy to scare. However, I'm NOT really surprised. This is very similar to what did happen here in the good ole USA before gov regulations and such.

Makes me SO glad I rely more on herbal medicine and am growing my own. Complete control I have -for now. But even I know I cannot grow everything I may need in the future.

all I can say is: I WANT ONE!!!

A New Way to Listen to Music

A friend of mine showed me a very nice new way to listen to music on my computer. This website will customize your music.

You type in a song or artist and it makes a "station" just for you with similar music. You can click a thumbs up or thumbs down. Thumbs up means it will search for more similar music and thumbs down will remove that from YOUR station.

I've been using it for three days now and really like it. You can make more than one station for yourself also. I've made two for me so far. :)

here is the link for Pandora Radio

Yes this was here IN these States also!

World War II allowed the Nazis to put their racist beliefs into place on a mass scale with the elimination of Jews and others considered pests to the master race.

The American experience

The theory of "racial hygiene" was not a Nazi invention, however.

In fact, it was practiced in the United States, where 16,000 sterilizations took place from 1907 to 1933, half of them in California.

I recommend reading the whole article.

Does Music give a "high" as good as sex?

"Listening to a favorite pop song or classic rock hit can trigger the same chemical reactions in the body as having sex, eating good food or taking drugs, according to Canadian researchers cited Monday in The Montreal Gazette."

I wonder if this is why those who listen to music while exercising lose more weight and stick to their exercise program better....?


And my kids thought I was strict!

I love this article! while I was not a 'Chinese mother'; I did believe in my kids to that extent. And I DID nag them a LOT! And when they succeeded, I rejoiced with them.


Since they do have a lot of success, I have to wonder what we "westerners" are doing to our kids, because as a teacher, I can see the difference and I do worry we do a disservice to our kids.

Whether you agree or not, there is definitely some food for thought!

Say What?????

Pope’s child porn 'normal' claim sparks outrage among victims

"Poo Gloos" eat "poo"?

A new way to clean up sewage....


They have mobile units also.

Why do I see some kind of horror sci fi movie coming out of this???


I found a set of six videos which teach one to disappear and get a new identity. These do not promote illegally obtaining a new identity; but there were interesting. I am posting the first video and if you click on the youtube, you should be able to access all six videos. enjoy!

Is this going to back "fire" on them?

Someone is trying to get a message across to the "gov" it seems. I think they are going about it the wrong way. Although it is true people are getting sick and tired of the high handedness of the gov, is possibly hurting someone innocent worth it? Is sending little packages of "warmth" going to blow up in the senders face? I think so.

I can completely understand using violence to defend oneself or family. I cannot understand using dangerous things or violence -possibly harming innocent people- to defend a belief.

HERE IS WHERE some 'gifts' from someone who is not pleased with the gov are talked about.

I totally understand the need to be vigilant for terrorists! Terrorists are cowards! And will kill anyone, including innocents, just to get their "idea" across. They are NOT defending anyone. They have no value placed on life. However whoever is sending this packages is ALSO a coward!!!! And could possible harm an innocent.

I totally understand the desire of our gov to protect the country from terrorists. But they are taking it too far. The gov actions have actually put them against those of the country who ALSO do NOT want terrorists to succeed.

There are so many regs in place that now most Americans are being vilified AND they are being placed under suspicion for just about anything. And these ones are beginning to show the stress and go against the unjustness. Hence the little wake up calls to the gov to back off.

The message sent with the Maryland packages was: "Report suspicious activity! Total Bull——! You have created a self fulfilling prophecy."

And these packages will just make the gov dig in tighter and expand their 'powers' and put MORE pressure and stress and suspicion on the citizens who are trying to do what is right.

So both parties have worked to create this self fulfilling prophecy: those for it and those against it who are going about condemning it the wrong way.

There will be many "reports" from people looking to settle scores with other people and just plain annoyance calls that everyone will be looking at everyone else with suspicion and distrust.

Sorry but division like that is NOT what makes a great country. Greatness comes from learning about one another and working together to right wrongs -building trust among each other.

Next will be the calls out to people to report anyone "hoarding" any food or guns or anything else that will shortly be very valuable. Yes the executive orders are already written and signed making anyone with more than a couple days of food "hoarders".

A situation to an extent never seen will shortly be upon us. The gov will 'disappear' when the food does. I'm sure they will be tucked in as snug as a bug in a rug ..waiting out the chaos that will ensue. Allowing the "minions" to annihilate themselves; coming out of hiding (cowards) only after it is "all over".

I wonder who they think they will be 'ruling over' then? lol! no one will be left who will allow them to rule.

So are YOU ready?

the Religious make up of the new congress

The Mona Lisa Has "Letters" in Her Eyes, Not Stars...

They looked deep into her eyes and found.... letters...?

Yep! Letters. Seems DeVinci left us a puzzle:

"Invisible to the naked eye and painted in black on green-brown are the letters LV in her right pupil, obviously Leonardo's initials, but it is what is in her left pupil that is far more interesting," said Silvano Vincenti, chairman of Italy's National Committee for Cultural Heritage.



That sneaky man him! lol!

Dead Birds in Arkansas

Seems thousands of birds fell from the sky. Dead.

All at once.


lot's of theories. A friend of mine who is a biologist and a pilot had this to say:

"Pilots think the temperature difference might have "sucked" them up to a higher altitude than they are used. On top of that there was terrible icing conditions at very low altitudes, so they may have literally frozen to death. I have a friend who was hunting around the same time and a duck fell out of the sky near him. His dog brought it back to him and it was frozen solid!"

If I hear any conclusive conclusions, I'll post or update this post.

What is your theory? Mine range from the temperature change (most likely) to the absurd of toxic gas clouds... (most UNlikely)

everyone should watch this.

take about 1 minute and 29 seconds out of your life and WATCH this video. It is the most beautiful and deep reminder I have ever seen. And yes, I cried. Peace

Have we reached "Peak Travel"?

"A study (abstract) of eight industrialized countries, including the United States, shows that seemingly inexorable trends — ever more people, more cars and more driving — came to a halt in the early years of the 21st century, well before the recent escalation in fuel prices. It could be a sign, researchers said, that the demand for travel and the demand for car ownership in those countries has reached a saturation point. 'With talk of "peak oil," why not the possibility of "peak travel" when a clear plateau has been reached?' asked co-author Lee Schipper ... Most of the eight countries in the study have experienced declines in miles traveled by car per capita in recent years. The US appears to have peaked at an annual 8,100 miles by car per capita, and Japan is holding steady at 2,500 miles."

found this little article HERE

seems reasonable to me. I travel far less now a days than I have previously.
