me- an interesting read-don't let the photoshopped picture put you off.
i admit it- i'm a sap for any wedding!  so i dvr'd the royal wedding. i love to see the big assed hats and all that but what i really like is seeing all the insides of the buildings and things like that. so- now that i dvr'd it off of the BBC i can fast forward thru the fillers and go right to the things that interest me.

i had to turn the darn furnace back on this morning- my hands were getting very stiff and i was not happy about it- it's almost may for pity's sake. the weather gurus did say we might get 3 whole days in a row next week with no rain! i'll believe that when i see it!

Would you take the strawberry???


"There is a story of a woman running away from tigers. She runs and runs and the tigers are getting closer and closer. When she comes to the edge of a cliff, she sees some vines there, so she climbs down and holds on to the vines. Looking down, she sees that there are tigers below her as well. She then ...notices that a mouse is gnawing away at the vine to which she is clinging. She also sees a beautiful little bunch of strawberries close to her, growing out of a clump of grass. She looks up and she looks down. She looks at the mouse. Then she just takes a strawberry, puts it in her mouth, and enjoys it thoroughly. Tigers above, tigers below.

This is actually the predicament that we are always in, in terms of our birth and death. Each moment is just what it is. It might be the only moment of our life; it might be the only strawberry we’ll ever eat. We could get depressed about it, or we could finally appreciate it and delight in the preciousness of every single moment of our life."

-Pema Chödrön (The Wisdom of No Escape: How to love yourself and your world)
Once there was a young warrior. Her teacher told her that she had to do battle with fear. She didn’t want to do that. It seemed too aggressive; it was scary; it seemed unfriendly. But the teacher said she had to do it and gave her the instructions for the battle. The day arrived. The student warrior stood on one side, and fear stood o...n the other. The warrior was feeling very small, and fear was looking big and wrathful. They both had their weapons. The young warrior roused herself and went toward fear, prostrated three times, and asked, "May I have permission to go into battle with you?" Fear said, "Thank you for showing me so much respect that you ask permission."


Then the young warrior said, "How can I defeat you?"

Fear replied, "My weapons are that I talk fast, and I get very close to your face. Then you get completely unnerved, and you do whatever I say. If you don’t do what I tell you, I have no power. You can listen to me, and you can have respect for me. You can even be convinced by me. But if you don’t do what I say, I have no power."

In that way, the student warrior learned how to defeat fear.

May Day Fairie Festival at Spoutwood Farm

May Day Fairie Festival at Spoutwood Farm



me- question-how about you? how do you feel?
A Husband takes his wife to play her first round of golf.






The wife promptly whacked her first shot right through the window of the biggest house adjacent to the course.



The husband cringed, "I warned you to be careful! Now we'll have to go up there, find the owner, apologize and see how much your lousy drive is going to cost us."



So the couple walked up to the house and knocked on the door.



A man's voice said, "Come on in."



When they opened the door they saw the damage that was done. Glass was all over the place, and a broken antique bottle was lying on its side near the broken window.



A man reclining on the couch asked, "Are you the people that broke the window?"



"Uh, yeah, sir. We're sure sorry about that," the husband replied.



"Oh, no apology is necessary. Actually I want to thank you. You see, I'm a genie, and I've been trapped in that bottle for a thousand years. Now that you've released me, I'm allowed to grant three wishes.. I'll give you each one wish, but if you don't mind, I'll keep the last one for myself."



"Wow, that's great!" the husband said. He pondered a moment and blurted out, "I'd like a million dollars a year for the rest of my life."



"No problem," said the genie. "You've got it, it's the least I can do. And I'll guarantee you a long, healthy life!"





"And now you, young lady, what do you want?" the genie asked.



"I'd like to own a gorgeous home complete with servants in every country in the world," she said.



"Consider it done," the genie said. "And your homes will always be safe from fire, burglary and natural disasters!"



"Now," the couple asked in unison, "what's your wish, genie?"



"Well, since I've been trapped in that bottle and haven't been with a woman in more than a thousand years, my wish is to have sex with your wife."



The husband looked at his wife and said, "Gee, honey, you know we both now have a fortune, and all those houses. What do you think?"



She mulled it over for a few moments and said, "You know, you're right. Considering our good fortune, I guess I wouldn't mind, but what about you, honey?"



"You know I love you sweetheart," said the husband. "I'd do the same for you!"



So the genie and the woman went upstairs where they spent the rest of the afternoon enjoying each other in every way. After about three hours of non-stop sex, the genie rolled over and looked directly into her eyes and asked, "How old are you and your husband?"



"Why, we're both 45," she responded breathlessly.



"NO SHIT." He said, "Forty-five years old and both of you still believe in genies?"



me- thanks uncle gabe!
Who Knew !!!!!


Eliminate ear mites. All it takes is a few drops of Wesson Corn Oil in your cat's ear... massage it in, then clean with a cotton ball. Repeat daily for 3 days. The oil soothes the cat's skin, smothers the mites, and accelerates healing.







Kills fleas instantly.. Dawn Dish washing Liquid does the trick. Add a few drops to your dog's bath and shampoo the animal thoroughly. Rinse well to avoid skin irritations. Good-bye fleas.







Rainy day cure for dog odor: Next time your dog comes in from the rain, simply wipe down the animal with Bounce or any dryer sheet, instantly making your dog smell springtime fresh.



Did you know that drinking two glasses of Gatorade can relieve headache pain almost immediately-without the unpleasant side effects caused by traditional pain relievers?



Did you know that Colgate Toothpaste makes an excellent salve for burns?



Before you head to the drugstore for a high-priced inhaler filled with mysterious chemicals, try chewing on a couple of curiously strong Altoids peppermints. They'll clear up your stuffed nose.



Achy muscles from a bout of the flu? Mix 1 tablespoon horseradish in 1 cup of olive oil. Let the mixture sit for 30 minutes, then apply it as a massage oil for instant relief for aching muscles.



Sore throat? Just mix 1/4 cup of vinegar with 1/4 cup of honey and take 1 tablespoon six times a day. The vinegar kills the bacteria.

Smart splinter remover: Just pour a drop of Elmer's Glue-All over the splinter, let dry, and peel the dried glue off the skin. The splinter sticks to the dried glue.



Hunt's Tomato Paste boil cure... cover the boil with Hunt's Tomato Paste as a compress. The acids from the tomatoes soothe the pain and bring the boil to a head.



Balm for broken blisters... to disinfect a broken blister, dab on a few drops of Listerine, a powerful antiseptic.



Vinegar to heal bruises.... soak a cotton ball in white vinegar and apply it to the bruise for 1 hour. The vinegar reduces the blueness and speeds up the healing process.



Quaker Oats for fast pain relief... it's not for breakfast any more! Mix 2 cups of Quaker Oats and 1 cup of water in a bowl and warm in the microwave for 1 minute, cool slightly, and apply the mixture to your hands for soothing relief from arthritis pain

Sharon Salzberg from The Buddha website:


"The Buddha was clearly stating that we are not held to different standards, nor are we free to hurt others, because of any circumstance of birth or social status. The truth of suffering and the end of suffering, tied so intimately to our ethical behavior, is the same for all of us."

my neighbor's magnolia tree is gorgeous-which means that those bad storms promised for 4 a.m. will hit and strip off the blossoms-happens every spring. so i look at it a lot before that happens. my parents had a row of them that ran down half the length of their yard. i miss those, and the wisteria a lot.

WWH-Who Are We?

WWH-Who Are We?


i'm one of the happy little group mentioned here- take a looksee!
Redneck Lent




Each Friday night after work, Bubba would fire up his outdoor grill and cook a venison steak. But, all of Bubba's neighbors were Catholic, and since it was Lent, they were forbidden from eating meat on Friday.



The delicious aroma from the grilled venison steaks was causing such a problem for the Catholic faithful that they finally talked to their priest.



The Priest came to visit Bubba, and suggested that he become a Catholic. After several classes and much study, Bubba attended Mass and as the priest sprinkled holy water over him, he said, “You were born a Baptist, and raised a Baptist, but now you are a Catholic.”



Bubba's neighbors were greatly relieved, until Friday night arrived, and the wonderful aroma of grilled venison filled the neighborhood. The Priest was called immediately by the neighbors, and, as he rushed into Bubba's yard, clutching a rosary and prepared to scold him, he stopped and watched in amazement.



There stood Bubba, clutching a small bottle of holy water which he carefully sprinkled over the grilling meat and chanted, “You wuz born a deer, you wuz raised a deer, but now you is a catfish.”

The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered "Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived."

i do by most of my clothes 2nd hand only because i like to and i know how to shop- but damn it- this is just like telling these kids that they are only worth 2nd hand. that THEY are 2nd hand!

btw , i've read that, as it is, a child's clothing allotment is 80 dollars per year.
went to a funeral viewing last night. i seem to be going to quite a few in the last couple of years. sad.
i really liked the man that passed on and his wife. nice , nice people. he always asked me about my dog and told me all about his little pup. there was a picture of his dog in the casket with him. he and his wife were married for 52 years.

life is a fragile thing and time goes by faster as we travel our paths.
