Tuesday, The Day After Yesterday —

Tuesday, September 27th, 2016 — was 4°C / 38°F & still dark @ 6:51 am in this little corner of Atlantic Canada — Mary Ellen S.’s Birthday 🙂 { Heart Heart Heart } —

After they wreck the planet for profit, losers may realize they can't eat money.

— No, ya can’t eat money — Quoting First Nations Wisdom —

— Once again, I thought I’d check the ‘Tweet-Us-Sphere’ and found a  lot to think about, a little bit to gag over, a lot of cute kitten and puppy photos and some really gorgeous – although possibly photo-shopped – landscapes and even city-scapes. This morning.

Annual John Lennon Concert announcement.

— This was from two days ago, but it’s worth repeating here, I do believe —

— I have spiritual connections with both J.L. and Donovan – Used to calm crying babies down by playing some of Donovan’s riffs on my Ovation guitar – “Don’t let appearances fool you -“

Stop worrying about what others think about you. ---

Stop worrying about what others think of you —

— If today had a ‘Tweet-Us-Theme’ it was “Stop worrying about how others see you/ Don’t measure yourself by what you see/think you see others achieving/being-“

Ya can't live somebody else's life.

— Example # 2 – Ya can’t live somebody else’s life —

— I get conflicting opinions about what Steve Jobs was all about. He is portrayed as a person who liked to shock people, who ‘outed’ people who didn’t share his style of doing things, [ shamed a guy as a ‘virgin’ for wearing a suit to a meeting at Apple when Jobs showed up barefoot and ultra casual —> in a TeeVee movie about the development of the personal computer – ] A close friend had her brother bring Steve Wozniak home to a suburb of Los Angeles with a version of one of the earliest Apple computers which he was bringing to a science fair in La La land – from photos, I guessed that Steve Wozniak would be a lot easier to get along with than Steve Jobs. But then somebody told me that Steve Jobs was a Yogi and handed out books on Yoga philosophy to lots of people. & studied the same school of Yoga as George Harrison & other notables — famous people in this group did not go on television singing the praises of their Guru or anything like that. If you didn’t know Who they followed or what they believed, you wouldn’t learn from the media.

Sunset in Paris

— First – The Pretty Stuff — Sunset in Paris —

— Wow? – Inspiring, hey? But then a Yogi friend told me I lived in Paris in a recent life. I was an Artist who supported my serious endeavors by doing pencil sketches on the streets for paying customers. At first I thought that was a bit off, then, come to think of it, I was super frustrated in high school when 99% of my drawings did not come anywhere near to measuring up to what I thought they should be. & Later, I discovered that when I told my ego to shut the bleep up and let go and let my hands do their thing – I was surprised at the results. And, when I was in my late 30’s I dreamed that my middle sister lived with or near me in Paris in that life time and she was quite taken by the charisma of a guy who was the center of attention at a lot of parties. She married that guy in this life and learned that he was an egocentric jerk – heck, he tried to pick up the woman I brought to their wedding – but she didn’t see that — That was her first marriage — The second one turned out a lot better.

Ack!

& This from “Half Past Human dot com” — Clif is real good at picking up trends in slight changes in linguistics used on the internet and has been uncanny in his ability to see what is coming in the near future, that we subsconsciously know is out there – & winging our way.

— If this guy [ Clif ] told me to head for higher ground, I would grab what I could and beat it in a hurry – climb the highest mountain I could reach.

The powers that think they be...

— The Powers that think they be — { Read the bit in the lower box first to see what they’re responding to in the upper part of this tweet. } Somebody probably did not realize this would fly out there into the chaos that is the ‘Tweet-Us-Sphere’.

— Um, in the 1939 World’s Fair { Before my time – but I saw black and white television memories of it – } and even the 1964 World’s Fair { I did not go to that one either, a friend took me to the park that might still be at the site of that one. } There was lots of talk about how wonderful the future would be – we’d have flying cars and smart highways that we could hook our non-flying cars up to and sit back and relax, be pulled along and warned before the connection would drop us off at our exit – And we would have loads of free time to pursue higher education and creative hobbies because robots would be doing a lot of the repetitive mind numbing work we all had to do before this new age of enlightenment would dawn on us. Then greedy people began busting unions and implementing third world economic warfare on the middle class and creating a climate of constant fear and anxiety so they could manipulate all of us into the state of mind where some of us actually think Hitler’s rhetoric recycled through Donald J Trump’s mouth makes sense and his ideology just might save us from the monsters under our beds and in our kids’ closets.  { Do Not Believe That! } {{{ Read “The Energy Non-Crisis” by Lindsey Williams }}}

Aimee Richardson's Journal.

— Flashback to my early youth —

— I know the feeling. Before my fifth birthday, one night when I was having difficulty getting to sleep, lying there in the dark, watching ghosts float across the room toward me in quite the stately procession – I did finally start to drift off and then heard a voice I thought was my grandfather talking to me through the wonders of a magic telephone enabled by the springs in my bed? “Do you know who I am?” – Me: “Yeah, you’re my grandfather-” “I have a message for you, Somebody ‘Important’ over here believes you could be quite a good writer if you want to be…” some things would be changed in this life, rearranged to develop and accent my writing abilities — not everything would be ‘easy street’ but I’d get a lot out of this, if I said ‘Yes’ — I said, “Yes.” And while still young, like before sixth grade? I quite often felt drawn to pads of blank paper, and really liked the feel of some books when I picked them up and held them. I felt compelled to write stuff and then often felt awful because I had taken these beautiful blank pages and filled them with very sloppy handwriting and stories that went nowhere. My first story? A dog and a rabbit were best friends – that’s all I remember now. I knew dogs and rabbits were natural enemies, so I wanted them to be best friends. I figured I had to start with kids stories, right? {{{ & Aimee Richardson and other young actors impressed me when twitter suggested I check them out. REALLY impressed me. I used to think anybody who looked as good as some of them do would never need to use their minds or their ‘higher sensibilities’ if all they had to do was smile just right at some ‘eligible rich guy’ and have anything they needed or wanted delivered to them on a virtual silver platter – but too may of these kids { who are young enough to be my grandchildren, shhhhh don’t tell anybody I admitted to that…. } really do have beautiful ‘old souls’ and that shines through – 🙂

Looks like up north.

— Looks like up north —

— Looks like Newfoundland – or northern Scotland or Scandinavia or Russia or —–

— I did go out of my way to copy and save a tweet underlining in red a lot of things that were not asked during last night’s debate. That tweet was posted by somebody who obviously has it in for Hillary. I am not a Hillary fan. & I have a sneaking suspicion some more ‘Fit’ will hit the ‘Shan’ before the election. But ‘we don’t need no stinkin recycled third reich bull chips!’ either. How far do you think we could get with a write in campaign? Or wait a minute —-

Conspiracy Watch Vote Results

— Couple days ago — my friend responded to this ‘vote’ and sent me a screen shot of the results — This happened last Sunday, don’t go looking to vote now. —

— I have no idea whether tons of Republicans found out about this ‘Vote’ and heavily ‘stuffed the ballot box’ – but – look how well the third and fourth party candidates are received in the real world beyond US borders. { the ‘republican’ results smell too much like A ‘Newt Gingritch Clone’ got every man woman and child card carryin’ republican with a twitter account to hurry up and vote here ]

Orange Kitten peeking out from under covers on somebody's nice white bed.

— Ooops – how’d that get in here? —

— I told you we get more than our share of cuter than bleep kittens and puppies and even bears and other scary things within the expanding microverse that is twitter  — & If I know anything about orange cats — this guy might have just pooped in there or brought a bloody dead mouse in with him — { or her } —

Venice

— And — to close on a beautiful note – Venice — hope it doesn’t sink due to global climate schnarr —

— I might add another smallish bit liberated from twitter pages the other day —

Purple Fairy Moon.

— I forget what I might have said about this in another blog…. ‘duh’ —

— Bon soir mes amis –,

-Successful Import from ‘infected’ blog-!

Sunday, Father’s Day, June 21, 2015 -( 12°C / 54°F & raining @ 11:11 am in our soggy corner of Atlantic Canada )-

book cover

The Energy Non Crisis by Chaplain  Lindsey Williams

— We thought we lost all the content on a blog that was hosted on another server. But we knocked ourselves out and learned how to fix problems that shut down the other server and then learned how to export content from the ‘infected’ blog to this one.

— And it looked like the process worked. At least, so far-

— We may have lost some photos and images, but I can’t tell for certain yet.

— & right now I’m trying hard to remember what the header image on the old site looked like.

— But anyway, Doug Otterson did a lot of work on the original blog and much of what we managed to import was work he had done, including quite a few pages copied from Indigo Night Eagle’s older blog.

— Um we hope you enjoy or at least find this interesting.

— Thanks,

~~~~~ Jim

First Post Here

Saturday, 06 June, 2015 -( 9˚C / 49˚F @ 2:22 am in Atlantic Canada )- D-Day plus 70 years. *** I don’t think our heroic ancestors fought and died to save the world from Nazis just to turn us over to freakin corporate Fascists***

— A couple nights ago the first two hours of Coast to Coast am with George Noory exposed an extortion scheme used by a ‘cybersecurity’ company with ties to the US Federal Trade Commission. It was the opinion of the guest being interviewed that attacks like the one he suffered were endorsed by the US Government in a sneaky attempt to try to prove that they should have much more control over the internet.

— So guess what? I tried to log in to one of my blogs to write about that and I discovered an error page, “Something isn’t quite right here… / This site is temporarily unavailable. If you’re the owner of this website please contact [ your provider ] …”

& Checking out my provider I learn that an email message I glanced past because the address was ” compliance@ —- ” had slipped below my radar. The subject of this message had a big long ticket number with at least ten extra zeroes beyond the actual ticket number and went on to include- “Malicious files” :

=====

Hello,

When we conducted a routine scan for your account ‘*****’, we found the malicious or infected files. We have uploaded a file named infected.txt within the stats directory of your account which contains the full list of files. As a result, we had to suspend your account, to avoid problems for website visitors or other customers.

To unsuspend the account, I request you to remove the malicious files and take below actions.

1. The most common reason for websites to get infected is because of using outdated applications, plug-ins, themes or modules in your hosting account. So, please make sure that they are up-to-date.
2. Update your control panel and any additional FTP account passwords. Remove unwanted FTP sub-users.
3. Scan your local machine with anti-malware/anti-virus software regularly.
4. Make sure that you have not uploaded any Pirated Softwares.
5. If you have clean backup, delete the entire website and upload a known clean copy of your website.

 =====

Alarm Bell #1 = “When we conducted a routine scan for your account … we found the malicious files. … ”  a routine scan for my account – not of my account? and We found the malicious files – not ‘we found malicious files’? At best this is not very professional. At worst— are these foreign hackers pretending to be my provider?

I get a little bit suspicious whenever I see that somebody has written “Softwares” – as a plural, but I have friends up here in Canada who know that many French speaking programmers use that term all the time.

=====

— There was more, but that ‘more’ included the name of the provider and the name of the ‘helpful’ person who was informing me of the problem.

— The ‘bottom line’ of this message, after I checked with the provider and investigated the latest updates in the security software they ‘offer’, is: they want an additional $189.99 per year to install and keep current the souped up version of the security package I bought last July, when I paid for two years hosting, because, stupid me, I used these people before and I trusted them.

— Looking through the file they saved in their ‘stats’ directory, their list of suspicious files includes their own software: “SiteLock-PHP-OBFUS_Eval_REQUEST.UNOFFICIAL” & “SiteLock-PHP-EVAL_REQUEST-md5-cgw.UNOFFICIAL”  & “SiteLock-PHP-INJECTOR-1-et.UNOFFICIAL” and a couple WordPress Theme Version checkers, and a plug-in file that might have been infected or might be legitimately there to check for updates: “JCDEF.Obfus.CreateFunct.BackDoorEval-22.UNOFFICIAL” There’s a lot more in this .txt document, too.

=====

But anyway- the timing here is highly suspicious. We hear that the US Govt is trying to seize control of the internet by hook or by crook, and, hey, if any of you out there actually get to read this, let me know what you think might be going on.
