It’s been a busy week- Cathi had the week off. Neither one of us was feeling all that good all week.

 

We took Moe to the vet’s to get his matts trimmed away and he was pretty darned good about it until the groomer got the ‘buzzy’ too close to spots where cats want no one to go with a hair trimmer- So- nobody got slashed or shredded and he only refused to talk to us for a couple hours and now he looks like a lion, and he can strut around showing off- Cathi said he was much better in the temperament department after he realized he could lick his fur without anything pulling.

On Friday we drove to the Bay of Fundy. The map we got with a visitor’s guide stunk. The GPS wanted to send us straight east to Moncton and then down. Friends, and daughters, had told us to take the seaside route, down to Saint John and turn left. We got going a little bit late. The map looked like we were about to make a wrong turn and I told Cathi we needed an exit that the map looked like we needed to take. So we only got a little bit lost, and the most direct route to ‘Hopewell Rocks’ had a few too many construction sites along the way, but we did stop for some home-made ice cream and made a friend, I think- Nice guy who uses all natural ingredients, he’s 73 years old and looks younger, and he thought I looked younger than I told him I am. I left him a link to a web site and an email address and never thought to ask his name. He lives on the west side of highway 114 a bit north west of Alma.

Hopewell Rocks from well below the high tide line.

We got to the rocks at twenty minutes to closing and the light was not so good when we got there. But I think I got one decent photo to replace another photo at the top of one of my blogs and that worked out okay, I think.

Today I felt lousy and had strange fever dreams, one of Tony Soprano’s enforcers came around to ‘axe me’ what was the hold up with getting my mother out of the house she had sold to a nice little old Italian lady who had bad friends and no patience. And a melancholy under-aged girl who had been kicked out of her home by her mother, supported by her grandmother for a couple years and then told not to come home without a job or money for rent – and grandma and ‘aunty’ didn’t care what she had to do to get it. The girl might have been fifteen or sixteen and wanted to know if she could make a lot of money posing nude for a photographer and I guess I looked like a photographer and I felt awful for her and gave her the keys to my travel trailer (In the dream I had a small travel trailer- not the tiny- made in Canada ones, but small, maybe 20 to 22 feet long)  I drove her to my trailer by a lake- Then she said she was afraid to stay there alone, so I slept at the kitchen table while she slept in the bed with the door closed and I don’t know how that turned out because I woke up.

Today’s Headlines from the CBC

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014. -( 61°F / 16°C & Mostly Cloudy @ 9:58 am in Ithaca, New York State )-

To be fair, I got these headlines from CBC dot CA / News.  <— Link

=====

“Offbeat”

Ira Glass tweets ‘Shakespeare sucks,’ the internet promptly explodes

Beaver blamed after tree hits car on highway ‘still at large’

Was that a UFO above Toronto last weekend?

Family Guy meets the Simpsons in extended trailer for crossover episode.

=====

“New Brunswick” { since I connected with the CBC website with this laptop one time while visiting somebody in New Brunswick, the internet must believe I’m still there. }

*Shale gas protesters sentenced to 15 months for violent clash with RCMP { *** Jim talked with some First Nations people up there who were sure that some of the fires that disabled obsolete police cruisers were started by angry ‘forest people’ (we might know them as leprechauns or angry faeries or ‘elementals’). Others believe the RCMP set their own cruisers on fire in order to get newer and better ones.*** }

Red bracelets thanking the RCMP being sold in Moncton { A high profile case in Monctor, NB hit the airwaves a couple months ago. A “troubled” teenager shot five RCMP officers, 3 of them died. Our real ‘died in the wool hardcore conspiracy buffs’ immediately claimed, ‘this has all the earmarks of somebody who’d been programmed by MK-Ultra types and activated to go on a rampage and kill police officers’ — But the people in Moncton, New Brunswick do not believe there is an evil, twisted plot by a dark ops group of ‘Empathically-Challenged Wannabe String-pulling Secretive Elitists’ & want to show that they appreciate being protected by Serve and Protect type officers of the law. Meanwhile, officers of the law in the USA are forming groups and calling themselves “Oath Keepers” who believe they have pledged to protect the population of the USA “From all enemies, foreign and domestic” and will not fire on unarmed civilians if ordered to. (( Would superior officers giving orders to fire on innocent, unarmed civilians then become one of those domestic enemies?)) I think the really scary part is that so many of them believe they just might be ordered to fire on unarmed civilians. }

Norovirus confirmed in Bathurst’s Chaleur Regional Hospital { Bathurst is in Northern New Brunswick. A college or university up there wants to close down their school of nursing. }

N.B. abortion access prompts St. John’s demonstration.  { This was an anti-abortion demonstration, I remember when a friend of mine wanted to stop at an anti abortion demonstration on State Street here in Ithaca and have the demonstrators sign petitions stating that they were ready to support the desperate mothers (regardless of any addictions and/or other problematic conditions) for at least 18 years and support any child that mother might have for 18 years (again, regardless of any health problems, physical or ‘other’) or until that child graduated from a college or university of the child’s choice (( at the demonstrators’ expense )) or, for the child’s entire life if he or she tested positive for any one of a number of “Challenges” such as intellectually or physical challenges or disabilities. He was ready to shout, ‘You do this and I’ll believe you’re actually committed to your cause.’ His fiancée at the time threatened to leave him. That relationship didn’t last very long. I can not take sides on this issue. I believe everybody has to make that decision for themselves (Preferably ‘Herself’) & I don’t know if anybody knows all the psychological, emotional, and spiritual implications and consequences of either choosing to abort or stopping someone else from making that choice. I’m really glad I’m not a woman. (& a couple women friends have accused me of being a coward for not supporting their side of this issue.  Quite a few, as a matter of fact, from both sides.)  }

=====

“Analysis” The 100-year conflict that is the First World War still rages: Brian Stewart { This is the first time I’ve heard the First World War being referred to as another ‘Hundred Years War’. This could be depressing. Maybe most earthling humans never will be able to learn from the mistakes of their fathers and mothers? —— Of course they will, we are on an upward growth spurt as I write this. The ‘bad guys’ are making a last ditch, desperate effort to keep us all off balance so they can manipulate us into a constant state of fear, then, they believe, we will be most ‘manageable’. }

SARS was ‘wake-up call’ that could prevent Ebola spread to Canada, doctor says  { I visited somebody in the Greater Toronto Area while the SARS scare was going full blast. I saw the signs at the hospitals that basically read “If you’re sick, don’t come here”. I can’t believe that anybody, especially a doctor, would have the audacity to say anything like, ‘SARS just might have been a good thing’. Any doctor who said “Death is a really good cure for Cancer” would not be going much farther into the ‘stupid zone’ than that. }

There are 3 more featured headlines about the Ebola Outbreak and “6 ways to avoid illness when travelling’ from January 29th posted in the cue. { The conspiracy guys believe this a plot to convince everybody to line up for drugs we’re supposed to believe will keep us safe so the MK-Ultra Elitists can distribute an inoculation that will kill off billions of the ‘great unwashed’ so ‘they’ can tighten their grip on this world’s population, strengthen their mind-control abilities, and keep just enough ‘useless eaters’ around to be whipped into subservience, & slavery. But remember the palmistry guy from a couple days ago? (scroll down) -He is sure that the manipulating control freaks will lose their grip and fight among themselves, and kill each other off before they can see their evil twisted plots reach fruition. }

{ I would like to add a bit of “Prayer Works”, or for the militant agnostics out there: Scientists don’t know how it works, but “Positive Intention Works!” }

Moving Into A More Positive Future?

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014.

In the second half of Coast to Coast a.m. tonight, George Noory is interviewing Vernon Mahabal (<— Link to Palmistry Website ). My first instinct would have been, “Well- I guess I’ll skip this one.”

But I’m working, too busy to change the station, and he’s making sense.

“Palmistry?” But he’s talking about trends that he sees coming. The message is very positive, although he sees a possible break-up of the United States into several regional governments with two basic polarities dividing those regional “Provinces” (he called them provinces a couple times) Those two groups will be “A”— [my distinction, he didn’t label them anything] The “Go-Getters” Materialistic, Patriotic, Nationalistic (( ESTJ’s)) and “B” — The more Creative, Perceptive, Community Minded (( Supportive, Nurturing )) types.

He says that the sneaky, demonic, string pulling, hidden, poisonous types who have been trying to run this Country and the World will lose their grip and in-fighting will destroy each other.

We have moved into a much more Positive 18 year cycle, where most people’s idea of prosperity will be a lot different than it was from the 40’s to the 80’s. There may be some rough times ahead as the bad guys try to bring it all down, and the poisonous old ways die hard, but we will emerge stronger.There will be a kind of Hopi philosopy, “Create your own occupation and you will find your Freedom”, that more and more people will adopt and will lead to empowerment.

We will add a link to the bottom of this page, where you can go find his site after this article is way down the list somewhere. (( We will probably add a link to Coast to Coast am, too, where you can go and sign up as an ‘insider’ ((( Not Free – they will charge you $ but you can sign up for a short time and download tons of interesting shows from their archives, I think they have 5 years of past shows available to subscribers ))) & if you do subscribe tonight’s downloaded podcasts may be a real good place to start. ))
