Most people don't know there are angels whose only job is to make sure you don't get too comfortable - fall asleep and miss your life.

Not Sedona [In reply to] Can't Post

Close to Tucson, actuallly. But there's a few vortexes outside of the Sedona area. I've been told that one exists directly over this ranch!

What a cool doctor you have!

The joys of living 'up north'! [In reply to] Can't Post

Maybe the cold rain will keep a few indoors, eh? Or, you could just use the opportunity to curl up with a really good book or a favorite movie. I think you have some of those!

Be safe!


"That is one thing that Men call 'hope.' Amdir we call it, 'looking up.' But there is another which is founded deeper. Estel we call it, that is 'trust.' It is not defeated by the ways of the world, for it does not come from experience, but from our nature and First Being. If we are indeed the Eruhin, the Children of the One, then He will not suffer Himself to be deprived of His own, not by any enemy, not even by ourselves. This is the last foundation of estel, which we keep even when we contemplate the End. Of all His designs the issue must be for His children's joy."

Thanks gramma! [In reply to] Can't Post

Anyway, since we're sharing... this is a long weekend for me! I don't return to school until Tuesday, as we November 20th is the anniversary of the 1910 Mexican Revolution. Because of some weird recent legislation, the free day is changed to Monday.

Anyway, chez moi, tradition says we put up Christmas decoration on November 20 (no Thanksgiving in Mexico) so I believe we are putting everything up tomorrow. That means Christmas Tree, a whole bunch of plush toys in the living room, Christmas carrols CD's, which include performers such as Mickey Mouse and Friends, The Looney Toons (Tunes?), The Muppets with John Denver, Air Supply, and Plßcido Domingo. It's also the first day we drink hot fruit punch. Overall, a great day...

You know what they say... It's the most wonderful time of the year. Wink

I've not seen the inside [In reply to] Can't Post

But I've seen the outside. It's about that decrepit.

I have been following the filming of the new Clint Eastwood movie Gran Torino, also done here in Detroit. The organist from my church plays for the funeral scene.

Sean Astin also was here filming a couple of weeks ago, in something about labor unrest among a secretarial pool. I've forgotten the name of that one.

Michigan has lots of tax incentives for film companies lately, and has attracted a lot of business.

Muppets with John Denver? [In reply to] Can't Post

I love that collection! Even Miss Piggy's "Five golden riiiiiiings"!

One can find the original show in pieces on YouTube, but I'd love to see it in it's entirety on television again...

The recovery of a true view of the world applies both to individual things, like hills and stones, and to the cosmic - the depths of space and time itself. For in sub-creation, in Tolkien's view, there is a "survey" of space and time. Reality is captured on a miniature scale. Through stories like The Lord of the Rings, a renewed view of things is given, illuminating the homely, the spiritial, the physical, and the moral dimensions of the world."

A few photos from the local rally. [In reply to] Can't Post

We had about 150 people. It was amazing to know that all over the world people were rallying at exactly the same time.

I uploaded some photos, but am having trouble getting some of them rotated correctly. :-/ Anyway, that's me in the rainbow hat, and my daughter with her "Let them eat cake" sign, and her best friend with her. Here's a slideshow:

On the side of love [In reply to] Can't Post

When it comes right down to it. When one is confronted with the essence of what defines the finest of humanity, that separates it from all other life and used as a bulwark against evil, what else is there besides Love? How can true matters of the heart be annulled by regulation?

Love you auntie. You just keep on a comin'. Those who know they are right, do.

Thanks for the pictures. Fine hat you are sporting:).

If I had a pie [In reply to] Can't Post

I have to admit I'd probably eat it, not throw it... I'm too hobbity at heart. Which makes me think: what would a hobbit do -- throw a pie, or eat it?

Great to see you delurk, lumpkin. Your little one is darling (he's grown so much!), and I think (in this picture at least) he looks like Mr. lumpkin. I trust Mr. lumpkin doesn't sing The Poopy Song (to the tune of "This Land is Your Land": "This poopy's your poopy, it's not my poopy, from California, to the poopy islands", etc.) when changing diapers? I would have to have a husband who enjoys parodies. I hope all's well with all three of you! When are you going to introduce that little one to the joys of visiting New Zealand? :-)
