Miracle Money

In light of my last post, it is only befitting that I share my experience of receiving a miracle of several hundred dollars, which has almost enabled me to be caught up on my bills.

God does provide, when we least expect it, and sometimes when we have lost hope and just given in to the possibility of living on the street, or in the car, which is without insurance, but nonetheless a type of shelter.

Yes, that is sometimes when God will step in and speak to another's heart to give money so that your need is not as great.

Praise God for His blessings, and for those souls who allow Him to use them as blessings. I pray that I never forget, and that I will also be used by Him to bless others as my bounty increases.

Have a great and prosperous day!!

Why not ME?

Can you believe that MySpace.com could be worth around $15 billion within three years, measured in terms of the value created for shareholders of its parent company, News Corp.

MySpace was acquired by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. for $580 million less than a year ago. It now boasts more than 90 million active users.

Wow, this Tom person sure hit the jackpot! And so have others who have used MySpace to come up with their own product.

Example: Josh Abramson, co-founder of Connected Ventures, has sold more than 610 $18 shirts in six weeks that take advantage of what is becoming quite a public in-joke. The shirts read, "Tom is NOT my friend." In case you didn't know, everyone who joins MySpace automatically receives the creator "Tom" as a friend. But he can be removed from the friend list any time.

And what about CraigsList with 10 million monthly users, and four billion page views per month?

Why oh why can't I come up with a huge money maker like that???

Any ideas??

B12 FOLATE AND HIP FRACTURE

A daily dose of vitamins could help those suffering from osteoporosis. It is thought that homocysteine, along with lack of calcium and vitamin d, causes osteoporosis.

Latest research shows that vitamins B12 and folate, or folic acid, can lower homocysteine levels. Research shows that stroke patients using B12 and folate had a five times lower risk of fracture compared to those using a placebo. But they had to exercise too to strengthen their bones. The dose of vitamin B12 they used in the study that was shown to be effective was 1500 micrograms by mouth daily. The dose of folic acid was 5 milligrams daily.

Flirts? or Perverts?!?

You know, I love Yahoo's instant messenger. It helps me keep in touch with members of my company team, meet new prospects, and chat with friends.

But lately, this week especially, I can't get much done for all the men (I guess they're men) wanting to talk, men I don't know, men who haven't even bothered to complete their profile, and men who within the first couple of lines want you to view their webcam!

I even created my own line to show by my name when I'm available which says...

"NO ROMANCE PLEASE!"

But it doesn't work.

So, now I just click ignore if there is no profile.

I could use the stealth mode, but some of my new business friends need a little help now and then, and so I want to be available to them.

Honestly, what is the world becoming?

What happened to integrity, character, dignity, and ethics?

What happened to the sacrament of sanctified intimacy?

Is there no shame - no conscience - no spiritual beings within these perverted human shells?

Truth is, they may deny their spirit, but it's there, and their actions will come back and bite them in the derriere!

And I'll be laughing at most of them, because this behavior truly is ridiculous, barbaric, and beastly. I like to think most spirits dwelling in human vessels can behave better than animals.

That's my peeve for today.

Stem Cell Research

This latest propaganda on stem cell research is just too much. Why do Americans, for the most part, believe everything they hear on TV?

Facts - there are now nearly 400,000 frozen embryos available for research.

Problem - many of these aren't considered to be primo because of some experimentation with mice, etc, etc.

Fact - stem cells can be harvested from many sources, not just embryos.

Fact - the embryo must be living in order to retrieve the stem cells which then KILLS the embryo.

Picture this - your child has a fatal disease which can only be cured by harvesting the stem cells from a sibling embryo. Will you get pregnant just to harvest these cells? Will you kill one child to save another?

It's that simple.

It's wrong.

Stem cell research is good, but it's been going on since the 1980s with no conclusive results, and no advancements made that can help anyone.

We are putting the cart lightyears ahead of the horse.

This is not even a topic worth debating - yet.

The bleeding heart democrats simply want another reason to cause havoc with our President, and this I do not understand since his term is nearly over. I guess they're so afraid that we will elect another Republican President that they are grasping at straws.

Sickening and disgusting, not to mention showcasing their lack of morals and ethics.

End result? They've lost another independent voter. Matter of fact, I'm not sure I can even consider myself an independent any more, except on a local basis.

Mainstream America Rules!!

Never Argue with a Woman

One morning the husband returns after several hours of fishing and decides to take a nap. Although not familiar with the lake, the wife decides to take the boat out. She motors out a short distance, anchors, and reads her book.

Along comes a Game Warden in his boat. He pulls up alongside the woman and says, "Good morning, Ma'am. What are you doing?"

"Reading a book," she replies, (thinking, "Isn't that obvious?")
"You're in a Restricted Fishing Area," he informs her.
"I'm sorry, officer, but I'm not fishing. I'm reading."
"Yes, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment. I'll have to take you in and write you up."

"If you do that, I'll have to charge you with sexual assault," says the woman.

"But I haven't even touched you," says the game warden.
"That's true, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment."
"Have a nice day ma'am," and he left.


MORAL: Never argue with a woman who reads. It's likely she can also think.

Happy Birthday to Me!

June 9 is the 160th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar (161st in leap years), with 205 days remaining.


On this day - June 9

1891 - Birthday of Cole Porter, American composer and lyricist.

1934 - Donald Duck debuts in The Wise Little Hen.

1954 - Janet Brown, age 16, and a 13-year-old friend of East Dandenong, Victoria heard a loud noise at 6:20 p.m. and saw a large, dark object that "burst into light" hovering 20 meters away at the height of a factory gate. It was cylindrical, 10 meters long, 5 meters high, with a canopy on top. It flew away and was lost to sight behind some trees. (Sources: Harold Wilkins, Flying Saucers Uncensored, p. 216; Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, p. 207).

Patron Saint - Saint Columba - Gaelic missionary monk who helped reintroduce Christianity to Scotland during the Dark Ages. One of the three patron saints of Ireland (although born in Scotland) along with Saint Patrick, March 17, and Saint Brigid, February 1. His baptismal name was Colum, which signifies a dove, hence the latinized form Columba.

After spending some years among the Scots, Columba began the great work of his life. Together with St. Comgall and St. Canice (Kenneth) he visited King Brude in his royal residence near Inverness. Admittance was refused to the missionaries, and the gates were closed and bolted, but before the sign of the cross the bolts flew back, the doors stood open, and the monks entered the castle.

Awe-struck by so evident a miracle, the king listened to Columba with reverence; and was baptized. The people soon followed the example set them, and thus was inaugurated a movement that extended itself to the whole of Caledonia. Opposition was not wanting, and it came chiefly from the Druids, who officially represented the paganism of the nation.

Read more of St. Columba...

Also Patron Saint of book binders and poets, and known for protection against floods, as well as many other miracles.

O Lord, grant us that love which can never die, which will enkindle our lamps but not extinguish them, so that they may shine in us and bring light to others. Most dear Savior, enkindle our lamps that they may shine forever in your temple. May we receive unquenchable light from you so that our darkness will be illuminated and the darkness of the world will be made less. Amen.
Saint Columba

Jimmy Carter

I love Jimmy Carter. Who wouldn't?

He is the best former President of my lifetime.

BUT, he isn't perfect, and he made mistakes, 'cause here's a whopper of one - but I don't hear the media BLASTING away at him as they would if this were a Republican...


Seaspook's Rants: Liberal Hypocrisy: "Former President Jimmy Carter's center in Atlanta received more than $1 million from the family of Osama bin Laden, according to an investigative report.

A brother of the al-Qaida terrorist leader, Bakr M. bin Laden, funneled the money to the Carter Center in Atlanta through the Saudi Bin Laden Group, according to Melanie Morgan, chairman of a group opposing the Georgia Democrat called the Censure Carter Committee.

On my way...

As I stood on my porch this morning having a cigarette, because I refuse to smoke inside - trying to quit - I had an unusually calming sense of contentment, which I have not felt in a couple of years - not since my husband, scratch that - former husband - left. I finally have my own home, I have a view of the lake, and the geese were crossing the street with their 11 babies, I have the day off, my birthday is Friday, and I'm just plain happy!

Oddly enough, though, I've been divorced over a year, and separated nearly two years before that, and I still find myself referring to him as my husband. Go figure!
