WHY IS IT ALWAYS CORN?????Children of the Corn parts 1 to a million
Messengers 2: The Scarecrow

And then the X Files Movie in 1998 ..... corn.... Testing corn to infect humans.. or was it aliens?

The Stand ... what did Mother Abigale see in her corn?rats and Randal Flag The Walkin Dude

But then there is always Field of Dreams. He tore up his corn field and ghosts came out of it.

Why is it always CORN?

Ding Dong

First of all I have to say that I LOVED watching the Royal Wedding. I watched Charles and Diana get married, divorced, die (Diana). William and Cathrine seem to really love each other. It was such a Beautiful happy day. I so want to make one of those biscuit cakes. Coincidentally I made a fruit cake for our wedding a small one to pass around during the hand fasting.

The wedding however, was marred by the sadness here at home with all the death due to the tornadoes. So terrible and so soon after the fires in Texas and the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

Then almost immediately to find out Osama is dead. Perhaps it is "wrong" to be happy over the death of someone.but, for the families of the THOUSANDS of human beings with families and loved ones there is justice. So for all of you that think maybe we should not be joyous read: World Trade Center 2001 and World Trade Center 1993 Not to mention U S Embassy bombing

(This is according to Widipedia...)

he admitted guilt for the murder of Rabbi Meir Kahane in New York on November 5, 1990.

In Sudan, bin Laden established a new base for mujahideen operations in Khartoum. He continued his verbal assault on King Fahd of Saudi Arabia, and in response, on March 5, 1994, Fahd sent an emissary to Sudan demanding bin Laden's passport. His family was persuaded to cut off his $7 million a year stipend.

By now bin Laden was strongly associated with Egyptian Islamic Jihad (EIJ), which made up the core of al-Qaeda. In 1995 the EIJ attempted to assassinate Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. The attempt failed, and the EIJ was expelled from Sudan.

As a result of his dealings in and advocacy of violent extremist jihad, Osama bin Laden lost his Saudi citizenship in 1994 and was disowned by his billionaire family.
Sudan also began efforts to expel bin Laden.

It is believed that the first bombing attack involving bin Laden was the December 29, 1992 bombing of the Gold Mihor Hotel in Aden in which two people were killed.

He funded Luxor Massacre

Then there is this":Another successful attack was carried out in the city of Mazar-e-Sharif in Afghanistan. Bin Laden helped cement his alliance with the Taliban by sending several hundred of Afghan Arab fighters along to help the Taliban kill between five and six thousand Hazaras overrunning the city." The Hazaras .

Well why don't you just go to wiki and read the whole thing-

But the last thing I'd like to mention is the bombing of the Cole

That is at least 4 attacks on the Unites States.
So am I sad or torn up about the death of Osama Bin Laden?


more....getting stuff off my chest
This pertains mostly to Face Book and email.
No more will I put up with insulting political remarks, No more ...

I am not pulling punches anymore. If you are a raving christian fanatic, I will probably Un friend you. I don't scream about my beliefs all over Face book. I don't insult your sensibilities with dogma. I don't feel the need to preach my religion with every breath. I know the bible and the way you guys do it, ain't what those guys meant. I'm not even going to go into the fact that the old dudes at The Council of Trent picked those books and much much more went in a vault. I am all for freedom of speech,freedom of religion but I am also for un-friend-ing people who continually offend my brain. I respect your right to believe ... but please respect my right to believe what I want.
And the same goes for what I said before ... raving remarks like one that said I voted for Obama because I didn't want to be a racist - that I should vote for someone else next time to prove I'm not an idiot. I take offense to that. I didn't make jokes or insulting remarks about Bush. It's just not what I do. Have some respect for people in cyberspace.. Realize that everyone does not believe you do.
Grow up.

Don't insult me, my beliefs, my religion, my sensibilities, I don't have time or energy to be upset by you.

March 25. 11

Watching the Midday news.. yech. Frankly everything is yech today.. well my stomach anyway. My mom had a flat in her car.. So she called me.. I went to pick her up cause my days of changing tires is past.. We were just going to send someone later to change the tire. When I got down there some young men from the carpet place across the street were doing it for her.

Wishing we could find someone to do stuff around here that you can count on. Guys are supposed to come by today and do some work form Momma... they are still not here. haven't called.

Japan is such a sad story. I gave toOxfam

Says that all of it goes to Japan.

Hoping that the problems in the Middle East resolve soon.

I've got to get my onion sets in the ground.. Been waiting for Shane, one of our handy men, to turn over the soil for me. I want to plant some potatoes too.
I still need to get some egg plant, basil, I'm quite sure I'll find more stuff too lol
I have Swiss Chard, Tomatoes.all heir loom.. about 6 plants so far.. OH I want some Tabasco peppers too. So this is a short up date..

So more to come.

Thinking about this 15 seconds of silence in Illinois. Wondering what the big deal is. You have to be pretty insecure in your own beliefs to think that this is a slight against anyone. As a pagan I have to put up with prayers before or after any type of meetings. You see I live in Central Texas which some say is the buckle of the bible belt. If prayers are called up, I just ask for blessings from the Goddess or the Great Spirit. Or I breath and collect myself, steel myself for what needs doing, calm myself, there are many things you can do with those 15 seconds other than say a silent prayer. Or as the guy just said on HLN... teach about diversity, not bullying, compassion or anything to expand our children's tolerance and understanding of others different than themselves.
Maybe it's because we are such a young nation, but we Americans need to get over ourselves. The rest of the world has.

Ricky Gervais so what if he was critical, offensive, or as Ironman put it, mean spirited. If anyone has ever seen Ricky on a talk show they know how his humor falls. What about Don Rickles? MEAN! It's no big deal. His remarks hit the mark anyway. Robert Downey is the one who played a black man stereotype in Tropic Thunder.

Ricky is so funny and quick and smart. The hoopla over his comments is just media bullshit.

Michael Douglas got a standing ovation for beating cancer.. I want one.. Hell I want two I've had it twice.

I have HAIR!!!

I was looking for a picture for an avatar and I saw a picture of an old bald man in my files.. I realized that it was me with out hair. I am really glad to have hair again.

Anyway.. all my stuff is over. I've had all my post everything checkups.. well I lie... I have two day after tomorrow.. My oncologist and my radiation dr. but its all good. My surgeon gave me some hints about why the skin on my boob itched.. she said the radiation draws out all the moisture.. so to put the stuff I used when I was going through the radiation or to use.. get this... wait for it... Crisco. lol

Anyway I still have some Elta so that's what I'm using. Thanksgiving was ok.. I mean it was fun because my brother, his wife, and children were here .. but my brother had a seizure less than 5 minutes after stepping out of the motor home.. he didn't even get into the house to tell Daddy hello. Had to stay in the hospital another day. He had never had one. They said it could be from many sources.. which I won't go into, but he is better and we hope he doesn't ever do that again.
The holiday was good after that though.. We all had a great meal and laughed alot.
The kids and wife went home and Marc stayed here for a few more days to rest up. Then Roy and I took him home and stayed there about a week.

Christmas was a pretty much non event. We were supposed to have a guest.. and wires got crossed and he didn't come. I feel bad cause I wanted him to come for Christmas day.

New Years was horrible I had words with my daughter and so I was pretty down in the dumps.. for several days.. Still don't feel "good".

My Uncle Dick's (dec) family is really in the shit. The elder brother's wife died last night from complications of Alzheimer. The middle brother's wife is not long for the world due to colon cancer. And the mother of the brothers is dying from lung cancer. Sad Sad. but they are handling it as best they can.

Roy starts to school next week. He was out for a semester because of having to miss too many labs.

Kevin is ok.. but I want him to get some tests run.

The old people are... old.
