I usually don’t have much time to just sit around and watch a movie more than once, but yesterday I watched the documentary “What the Bleep Do We Know?” again. Basically it’s about quantum physics and how our very thoughts can affect events and what happens to us. It’s worth a view. Really.
There was one section in the movie where a man said they did an experiment in D.C., a sort of psychic experiment, where they gathered a lot of people who came to the city, and just meditated on stopping the crime rate. It went down that year, 25 percent he said. Of course…that experiment was debunked on Youtube, and I think, it depends—on many things, whether you are a skeptic or not. CAN our thoughts tap into some kind of molecular universal force that will manifest outcomes? After all, Thomas Edison, who was no fool, tried to tap into it.
Some call it the “god” effect, and I must say, I’ve had some really strange thing happen in my life time, that could not have been mere coincidences. Millions of people have this happen to them everyday, but they don’t think about it much.
For instance, when I was 19, I had just started playing the drums, and I remember passing a hotel, one of the maybe 100 hotels in the city and I thought to myself, “Wow…if ONLY I could be good enough to get in a band and play there. Get out of dodge woman… you dream, I said to myself.” And then I forgot that thought completely.
Would you be surprised if I told you that just by random chance, within a month I had gotten a job with my first band, who just HAPPENED to get booked in their next job there by chance? Did I WISH that so much that somewhere in the quantum physics of the universe it just happened?
Coincidence? Or quantum physics at work? Or just that force we call God. What do YOU think?

This is such a delight…young Tanishq is a real joy to behold…..and the REASON he will do great things is because he has really smart parents.
What I liked about this little film, is that the professor brought up a great point: Genius gets put aside. There are so many programs for the ones who have trouble, but the really bright kids, get pushed aside by our school systems. They get bored. They drop out. A lot of them are not lucky enough to have such great parents.
Some big corporation already has eyes on this kid…
What a great story. Enjoy!
I had one of those really bad days,…..I left the house at ten am, and didn’t get home until well after midnight, due to my car breaking down, and me running around town trying to get it fixed before it kills me on the highway, and here I am thinking…
Should I write really meaningless stuff, that even I will be bored by because I’m so tired? After all, I have NO idea what damage Obama did to the country today, but if it’s like any other day…I need to give it my FULL attention, and since I’m wet, (from the rain) and tired…the answer I gave myself is:
You torture enough people.
Trust me, I do this because I really appreciate everyone who visits here daily.
In the words of the Terminator…”I’ll be back” ….shortly. After I get some sleep.
Tonight, or tomorrow.
She’s two. I can’t wait to see what she will be doing at four.

I thought this Nature Valley commercial sent a message that was so much more to think about— than an energy bar.
Video games ARE addicting. They have done studies on the effects of the brain. While they do improve some brain functions, too much is not a good thing.
Go by any park, and the baseball lots are empty…all the kids are inside playing video games.
I don’t know about you, but our parents told us to “go outside and play” and we were outside playing, building forts, making up games, exploring the woods..until the last rays of the sun. The LAST thing we wanted to do was to go inside…and be with boring mom and dad.
Back then, it was safer. Back then, kids learn independence. Solitude. The wonder of God, the universe, bugs, animals…the wonder of the world.
Still…listen to these kids. Sad.
These are the kids who will BEG for someone to wire their brains directly to the web.
And the developers are working on that right now.
Makes you glad you grew up when you did, doesn’t it?

Hey! We made it to the weekend! And that means…Nobody gets out of her gloomy self and posts uplifting and fun stuff…like this:
Diver puts a GoPro camera on a Hammerhead shark, and you get to see the ocean from the shark’s view. I’d say, he lives in a better neighborhood than me.
Beautiful. Those GoPro camera’s are amazing.

This little four-year-old girl’s first aerobatics flight was such a joy to watch. What a great laugh.
Lucky Dad…. Lucky little girl. And smart. Dad will have her flying that plane in no time.

Forget the world..these are GREAT pictures…
Drudge had this posted yesterday…Triple Crown winner American Pharoah!
And rich or poor, royalty or not…these picture of Prince George and his new little sister are all too familiar to every single mom and dad who ever had children…Let’s hope they both grow up to always love one another.

I was going through some old email today, and found this. I might have posted it before…but seeing it the second time, I found the guy who owned this Honey Badger just as fun as the Badger himself.
He really LOVES that little guy.
Enjoy…and be amazed.

Bruce Jenner has made his splash as a female….New Orleans look out. He told the editor of Vanity Fair, this comment about comparing his Olympic Gold Metal to seeing himself on the cover of Vanity Fairs:
“That was a good day, but the last couple of days were better. . . . This shoot was about my life and who I am as a person. It’s not about the fanfare, it’s not about people cheering in the stadium, it’s not about going down the street and everybody giving you ‘that a boy, Bruce,’ pat on the back, O.K. This is about your life.”
Really? He/She is trying to tell us all it’s not about his own ego? Please. I don’t care if he is gay, or a marshmallow, the man simply HAS to be in the spotlight. And to say it’s not about everybody celebrating you, is pure malarkey. Bruce Jenner just wants attention. The liberals are ecstatic to have a past macho he-man turn into a woman. They are besides themselves with glee.
To me, the picture just shows what great makeup artists can do.
On a complexly different note
I was in Wal-Mart the other day and was looking for some 100w replacement bulbs and I glance and..WOW! There was a box that said 100 in big bold letters. BUT…right underneath that big number was a much smaller number of 72. Which was the REAL number, and it was just a marketing gimmick.
So, why did they take 100w bulbs off the market? I don’t think they are conserving energy for the OZONE, could it be, that our electrical grid is so outdated, and they just don’t want to replace or update it. NEVERTHELESS, with millions of illegal’s immigrants flooding the country, and all the cell phones and computers sucking up more than our electrical grid was ever capable of, they just decided to make us use less wattage, and make themselves more profit while they were at it.
The mercury in the bulb was just a nice touch.
Any thoughts on this?
The best of news…..
Okay. I admit it. I gave myself a few more days of “rest” from writing, which is always a good thing to anyone who writes everyday I think. I want to thank the readers who sent prayers for my family during this last week: We are home now, and everything is pretty much back to normal except for lifestyle changes which have to be made.
To explain my panic, my husband has an inherited blood disorder called Protein S Deficiency Factor 5 Leiden: These are two separate issues:
Factor V Leiden thrombophilia is an inherited disorder of blood clotting. Factor V Leiden is the name of a specific gene mutation that results in thrombophilia, which is an increased tendency to form abnormal blood clots that can block blood vessels.
People with factor V Leiden thrombophilia have a higher than average risk of developing a type of blood clot called a deep venous thrombosis (DVT). DVTs occur most often in the legs, although they can also occur in other parts of the body, including the brain, eyes, liver, and kidneys. Factor V Leiden thrombophilia also increases the risk that clots will break away from their original site and travel through the bloodstream. These clots can lodge in the lungs, where they are known as pulmonary emboli. Although factor V Leiden thrombophilia increases the risk of blood clots, only about 10 percent of individuals with the factor V Leiden mutation ever develop abnormal clots
Okay…so not so bad..BUT…he also has the only other blood clotting disorder called Protein S. Deficiency:
Protein S Deficiency (PSD) is a rare blood disorder that affects just a few thousand people worldwide. It is one of several known risk factors for thrombophilia and can increase the risk of blood clots such as Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and Pulmonary Embolism (PE).
AND he has lived with a blood clot in his leg..(one of the many he has had) for over four years, which we were warned could break away any time. Add to that, is the fact that he is allergic to Kumindin, and had to experiment with other blood thinners. We never know when something might happen. He is on one of the many blood thinners that you see on TV everyday…you know, the ones where you could DIE any second so please contact our lawyers types?
The good news: He is okay now, and besides a lot of bad hospital food, he has found out he cannot drink his favorite Mountain Dew anymore, or indulge in his other daily favorite vice…Twinkies.
So—small a sacrifice..in the scheme of the universe–it means–Your prayers worked! Thank you! Not that this couldn’t happen again in the future, it’s just nice to know, he’s okay for now.
On another short note: I have to tell a few stories from the hospital. (Of course I do.)
I was in the hospital room when one of the technicians came rolling in with a big machine to do an ultrasound on the blood vessels to his brain. As I watched in amazement at the huge monitor, I asked her how long it took to learn to operate the machine:
“A year and a half,” she said. “but you must have a Bachelor’s Degree first.”
As we got to talking I found out she was from Iran.
“You know,” I said, “People all over the world think Americans are fat and lazy…but..we are NOT lazy.”
“Yes, I know that.” She said. She then told me how people in Iran, worked until early afternoon than took long afternoon breaks..and some of them would go back to work later, but their work days were short.
“Is it true about the people?” I asked.” “Do they agree with the Mullahs?”
“Right” I said. “Obama was no help.”
She shook her head, sadly, in agreement.
And then she talked about how hard she had to work–she had two jobs. She worked at a bank part-time and at the hospital part- time. She and her husband, who was from Mexico, were struggling, and they had a little boy.
His parents were doctors in Mexico, but he did not follow in their footsteps…he was home. Perhaps unemployed, but she didn’t say. She was so proud of him because he just lost 40 pounds when he found out he was a diabetic by exercising. She wanted to exercise with him, but just could not find the time.
The reason I bring this up, is that I thought it strange that with all her education, the hospital had her on part- time. The hospital did….as a whole… seem empty.
Still worrying about my husband, I had to come home to feed the dogs that first night. After that was done, I went to my neighbor’s house to ask if she could give me a lift to my husband’s car, which he had left at work. My neighbor is in her early sixties, and she works at the local church, so I knew she would help.
In her living room was her grandson, who was graduating from Law school. The money he owned from law school was $200,0000, and he was trying to figure out how he was going to pay it off while setting up a house and starting his new job, and he couldn’t see how he was going to do it.
He expects to make $300,000 a year—– someday.
And I can’t help but wonder, will that day come? Or, will we fat and lazy Americans become more like Iran, and Europe, and work part-time, making less and less, and doing with less and less?
Some say, someday—- is already here.
So, what did I learn from the last week?
Stay out of hospitals…and someone please tell Obama: Fox News is being shown in the ER. All…Day….long! :)
He has a rare blood disorder …I won’t go into it except to say, for the next couple of days I will probably take a break from posting as I will be spending all my time at the hospital with him.
Any prayers you care to throw our way will be appreciated. I will know. I just will.
Sometimes…life sends us long faces…doesn’t she?
In the meantime, hold down the Nobody fort.
And thank you again….for your understanding.
