Free Light ***

     An email I just received from - - is a great path of information.  It is very innovative.  Phillipines.  Free light after initial installation.  Watch and see if you don't agree.

'Military expenditures did not seem as necessary' ***

What a Happy-Making headline this would be with regard to my country.  A good headline with regard for all countries. with my faithful writer in Canada has two extremely articulate and informative articles lately.  I would urge anyone to read them and also go to the extended links he has furnished.

The video there of Canadian students walking and smiling yet opposing some decisions proposed against them was very impressive to me; for I began to compare their atmosphere against that of other opposition movements occurring around the world, allowing e.g. death and destruction.

An opposition that happens about anything carried on in a civil, respectful manner will always be preferable to me. 

The students of Quebec walk the streets in droves of thousands  and carrying banners; 300,000 in one opposition walk - that is 33 and 1/3 % of a million persons!  This number of citizens at one protest means something serious, something very serious to them.  So those in the 'proposing positions should open their eyes and their brain and "listen to the people".  The people are speaking ... speaking in dead ernest.

On another note: today begins Memorial Day weekend here in the United States.  Very well and good to remember and honor all the ones who have given their life in defense of their country.  My brother, who died recently also gave his years/time defending his country; yet the many years living with his remembrance of those (captured, mistreated) experiences and a hard struggle with health and burdensome-daily-life finally became too much.

I propose that humanity begin to focus on what can benefit each of us in our future as a civilization and try to unfocus on the unhappy past.  Sad memories only bring one down, degree by degree.

Tell me: Why has our earth always been a battleground? Do you know?

Here I Go, Wondering Again ***

"Did you ever wonder if the person in the puddle is real, and you're just a reflection of him?"

~ Calvin and Hobbes

Life hasn't gotten me to this point yet, but give it time and I may begin to wonder just that!

Democracy Now ***

Watching this gladdens my heart!  Makes me realize that not everyone has been brainwashed so deeply or permanently that they can't see the wrongs of the past and present.  There is deep stain on our souls and it must be cleansed away; if that is possible.

Um, Uh, Do What? ***

Chest another day in NYC

By Candice M. Giove

This activist thinks women have the right to “bare” more than just arms.
Moira Johnston, 29, drew a lot of attention during a topless protest yesterday in Union Square Park — and that’s exactly what the dancer wants.
“I want people to know . . . it’s legal for a woman to be topless,” Johnston said.
“A woman has the right to be topless anywhere a man can be topless in New York since 1992,” she said.

Funny! ***

An elderly gentleman feared his wife was getting hard of hearing. So
one day he called her doctor to make an appointment to have her
hearing checked.

The Doctor made an appointment for a hearing test in two weeks, and
meanwhile there's a simple informal test the husband could do to give
the doctor some idea of the state of her problem.

'Here's what you do," said the doctor, "start out about 40 feet away
from her, and in a normal conversational speaking tone see if she
hears you. If not, go to 30 feet, then 20 feet, and so on until you
get a response."

That evening, the wife is in the kitchen cooking dinner, and he's in
the living room. He says to himself, "I'm about 40 feet away, let's
see what happens." Then in a normal tone he asks, 'Honey, what's for
supper?" No response.

So the husband moved to the other end of the room, about 30 feet from
his wife and repeats, "Honey, what's for supper?" Still no response.

Next he moves into the dining room where he is about 20 feet from his
wife and asks, "Honey, what's for supper?" Again he gets no response.

So he walks up to the kitchen door, only 10 feet away. "Honey, what's
for supper?" Again there is no response.

So he walks right up behind her. "Honey, what's for supper?"

"Darn it Earl, for the fifth time, CHICKEN!"

BBC -Smart Advice When E-Mailing ***

Jinksy at Napple Notes.

"I've noticed, many people who forward emails, do so by using a whole string of names and addresses in the 'To" slot, which is just asking for trouble, as my knowledgeable, techy son explained to me when I first began blogging and emailing.

It only needs ONE of those people to be blessed with a computer virus, and it will spread to everyone else on that list, with the speed of light!

The simple expedient of sending mail 'BCC' (blind carbon copy), prevents this annoying possibility.Think on fellow bloggers."

Good direction.  I always use BCC.
