Coronavirus Updates

I feel the need to post some disturbing developments & information that has come to me attention earlier today. I would like to post something fun or amusing or even hopeful but I won’t lie to folks.

The only laughs I have had today was going on some Facebook pages I follow for their sometimes off color or radical humor like “Funny AsShit.” Also videos on youtube that offer political humor as well as cute animals or music to pass the time. Never mind that I have hundreds of shows/movies on DVD’s I never watch. I’m partial to “Psych” episodes & just found a very cute BBC children’s show called “Young Dracula” on PlutoTV. Great cast, especially Keith-Lee Castle playing the Count, a single father of two. Never heard of him before this, but he & the entire cast are fabulous. Not sure why so much talent is buried in our world meanwhile the usual suspects are paid the big bucks to further agendas for their mainstream bosses.

So I see this First think on Facebook today. Someone shared it with me. I am sorry if this is upsetting to some but this is the reality we currently face & we have to do something about it. Be safe, but don’t be complacent when the current “powers that be” tell you to do something foolish or not helpful.

<<<During the Holocaust, they convinced people to put their families on trains (for their own good/safety) so they could be taken to a “safe place”. We all know the result of that. Have you ever heard of history repeating itself? I watched in horror as the police in China hauled a woman by both arms and both legs, shoved her in a van, and took her to a “camp” for COVID victims. We’ll never know what happened to those people. And with what’s taking place right here in our own country, don’t think for one second that it couldn’t happen here. We the people have proven just how quickly the government can take over all aspects of our lives. We complied based on fear tactics……….some of which are very untrue, and magnified/sensationalized to get you on that “train”. Please read. It’s for the good of our country.

Mark Levin is a very smart lawyer who worked in government during the Reagan administration. He knows his law.

MARK LEVIN: “To be clear. President Trump hasn’t shut a single business. The Governors did.”

“We are seeing the most draconian measures ENFORCED at some STATE & LOCAL LEVELS of government that we’ve ever seen in our lifetimes, and yet, rather than being alarmed by the things going on, so many of you applaud.

President Trump’s guidelines are VOLUNTARY & TEMPORARY but some Democrat states & cities are taking it one step further, extending the lockdown and CRIMINALIZING behavior. Bill Gates wants to keep America locked down for 10 months! THAT’S WHAT LIVING UNDER A COMMUNIST REGIME LOOKS LIKE, AND YOU APPLAUD.

People are being arrested in some states for spending too much time outside, and you applaud.

Pastors are being arrested in some states for daring to hold church services, and you applaud.

A child’s birthday party is raided by police, and you applaud.

A young woman is ticketed for going on a leisurely drive alone because it’s deemed “non-essential travel”, and you applaud.

A father is handcuffed & arrested in an empty park for playing softball with his 6-year-old daughter & refusing to turn over his ID, and you applaud.

A lone paddleboarder in the ocean on a beach without any other people around is arrested because he’s violating quarantine orders, and you applaud.

Businesses are being forcibly closed and padlocked and owners arrested for refusing to shut down, and you applaud.

Dairy farmers are being incentivized to stop dairy farming and to sell their herds, and you don’t seem to understand the implications.

You’re being told to use hotlines and online forms provided by your local governments to report your neighbors who don’t obey, and you comply.

You scold people day after day for not obeying government edicts, and if any of us dare to question what’s happening, you lecture about how we’re a danger to society and we just don’t care about people dying.

You’ve somehow managed to convince yourselves that the people whose lives are affected by a virus are MUCH more important than the people whose lives are being destroyed (and in many cases, leading to death) by the effects of a worldwide economic shutdown and impending worldwide depression the likes of which no one has ever seen before.

At what point will you start QUESTIONING what’s going on?

At what point will you ask how the virus got here from China? (as if it wasn’t manufactured here and even over there)

At what point will you question why the fake news keeps defending the Communists?

How far do you have to be pushed before you’re jolted awake from your slumber?

How far are you willing to go with this?

If they told you to load your families onto train cars so that you could be taken to Virus Protection Facilities for your own safety, would you do it? —> YES. Yes, you would.

That much has become painfully obvious to me. And the whole time, you’d be shaking your finger and yelling at those of us who refused, accusing us of being “a danger to society” and “not caring if people die.” But they don’t have to load you onto train cars and take you to Virus Protection Facilities, or force you to comply, because you do that voluntarily.

The fake news controls your mind. They control you through fear. They control you by convincing you that the world is a scary dangerous place, but they’re here to protect you, care for you, and keep you safe, just as long as you OBEY.

They know that as long as you’re locked inside your comfortable home with Netflix, Hulu, CNN, NBC, ABC, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and a cell phone, you’ll comply. No force is necessary for the majority of the herd.

Bill Gates even wants to mandate antibody tests. ONLY those who are immune from VIRUSES will be allowed to leave their homes & work. YOU ARE IMPRISONED, willingly, and you’re too blind to see it.”

I will not be blinded!

I will not be controlled by the government! Amendment 1
– Freedom of Religion, Speech, and the Press
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.>>

People, always be aware of what is happening & never just allow paid talking heads to tell you. They will only tell you what they are allowed & instructed to tell you. They do not speak the truth anymore & this should scare you.

Also be careful when anyone asks or tells you to do anything in this fear based environment. If you remember that living is one big crap shoot & sooner or later we will all crap out, you will feel much better & less pressured to take a vaccine that may cause illness or even death to some. Of course if they were to start something like this their story would be that some will die, just like with all medical procedures that carry this risk. That is nonsense.

I didn’t realize how vaccines can work or the reason you might die or become ill if you come in contact with a virus after receiving an inoculation that has not had all the bugs worked out such as what happened with vaccines for Dengue Fever causing some to have an “over reaction” or deadly reaction once vaccinated & then coming in contact with that germ. Vaccines are not some magical “get out of sickness & death” guarantee. In fact sometimes it’s the exact opposite. Please do your research, though I have found that Google & others that control our media are blocking & making some things disappear if it makes certain people look bad.

Starting the New Year Right

I’m probably going to be folding up shop in 2019, not positive exactly when but……

Now you see me…

Soon you will not.

I have not been able to buckle down as I had planned to turn this site into what I wished it would be.  To be very honest, most things in my life and in the world are nothing like I planned or imagined.  I’m sure most of us feel this way.  Right now I’m tired.  I’m beat.  I know that this is part of the reason for my losing my passion to do what I had originally planned.

Many of my plans cost me WAY more than the projects were worth emotionally and financially, especially since internet traffic is becoming worse and most of it is now controlled by mega corporations that hold the little guys hostage with increasing fees for everything.  Especially advertising.  If you don’t let them extort you, you are dead to the online world.  They can bite me.  I will eventually be off the grid, just not sure how soon that will come to pass.

The problem with information being held hostage is pretty soon the world will become nothing but propaganda with only the very wealthy having a voice and controlling everyone and soon everything.  How will truth fit in?  This is VERY DANGEROUS.  Never before now have we experienced such a horrific scenario with cameras on every corner and absolutely no privacy anywhere.  These are indeed the end times and how I wish I was just a “fanatic.”  I will never forget when I first heard folk talk like this 40 years ago and I thought they were nuts.  Now we all have proof they were not.  They believed in scripture as the “Gospel” when I just used it to guide me.

Important scripture to remember right now, especially after Christmas.  I used to say “The Holidays” until the Word Nazis got “butthurt” over the word Christmas because “Christ” was in the mix.  They can “get thee behind me” in the name of Jesus!

I love spreading Jesus all over social media.  Many love it, that follow me specifically, but to others I am simply spreading the “butthurt.”

Winter joke! (still no snow here)

Another joke (?)

Speaking of bull, remember those BS news stories from a year ago about possible Chocolate shortages?  https://www.foxnews.com/food-drink/experts-say-chocolate-could-be-impossible-to-produce-by-2050  Problem with nonsense like “shortages” is they can and usually are falsely generated by various entities to carry forth their agendas and to control the people and/or profits.  As someone who comes from a long line of farmers, food shortages are almost impossible for any reason.

God created cocoa beans!

Praying for the world to find Jesus and appreciate what life is really for.

Cemeteries in Black and White

Black & white photography really does give a certain “mood” to prints.

It especially gives a cemetery that added “cold as stone” feel.

My best friend took this picture of me many years ago pretending to be “Angelique Collins” from the old Dark Shadows series. We loved that show. Ironically I find I have a number of grandmothers on my French side by that very name, “Angelique!” Had I known this sooner I would have insisted my parents change my name. As you can see I lightened my hair so I could resemble her. (the picture is badly deteriorating and yes, that is a crystal ball!)
Some of my ancestors were burned as witches and I inherited it.

Psych!

Psycho!


Daily Prompt: Blame the Dog

Any of you guilty of “blaming the dog” for stuff?  Farting, eating your homework, that missing cookie, etc…?

HUH?!

Don’t forget Queens! Today is International Tiara Day! Wear your crowns proudly! 

Please enjoy the following guilty pleasure if you happen to have one of the vintage Duncan Hines Tiara Dessert pans from the 80’s.  If not I’m sure you can make do with what you have on hand and play it by ear.

You can place the strawberries over a custard or vanilla pudding layer as I did or just top with the strawberries.  Whipped cream can only improve the experience.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Scale

Boy can this “prompt” be used in many different ways!  

SCALE

The first thing that came to mind was my bathroom scale.  It is near Halloween so it’s appropriate that I bring something up that can be a very frightening experience for many of us.

Not only that, but check out the name of my scale.  If you are a fan of Steven King, you get it!

My seldom used bathroom scale!

Thinner indeed!

I felt sure that I would begin losing weight once I started using this scale to weigh myself, but obviously a misnamed product.

THE MONSTER IS SLEEPING!

Then there are “fish scales.”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Surprise!

Surprise!  Anything can be on here today!

Today is National Grilled Cheese Day! I prefer Swiss & Muenster instead of the American Processed slices I used to have as a kid.

Goes great with a mocha Frappe.

 

Surprise to me! Both the mug and plate have since been broken and I don’t have a clue what the heck I was eating. Any guesses?

Sorry the mug is blurry.  Says “If I ever have the urge to marry again I’ll just find someone I hate and buy them a house!”  Funny at the time.

I seldom ever indulge in alcohol. Never liked it in any form “grape juice that burns!”

However dark chocolate and ice cream have always been my weakness!

Alas, I can no longer indulge in these goodies until I lose another 15 lbs.  I have always been very good in the past when I give myself a goal but since this always has to be repeated, I don’t like eating healthy all the time.  It’s not good for you to yo-yo as I do because it means that I eat excess fats and calories that my body does not need and then I go into starvation mode to lose again.  Very bad all the way around.  I do spend a lot of time in front of the computer but I do work out daily.  Sadly the older you become the slower your metabolism gets.  So for now I just keep bad stuff out of the house.

Daily Prompt: Imaginary Friend

TA – DA!

That was the name of my imaginary friend.  And she was a legend in her time.

EVERYONE talked about Tada, my friends and family and sometimes even strangers asked me if she existed.  They just wanted to see what I would say so they could laugh at me I guess.

I never really ever had an imaginary friend like some do, but her existence began at a very young age as a defense against my mother’s sarcastic wit.  I was forever trying to perform and my acts were always accompanied by me yelling “Ta-da,” very dramatically.  One day my mother quips up “Tada, who’s Tada?”  To which I answered “she’s my friend.”  Then I had to describe her as I threw out answers off the top of my three-year-old head in response to my mother who was barraging me with questions, thinking she was funny.  I remember being angry with her sarcasm so I kept it up as long as she did.  A trait I had to continue to this very day in my relationship with her.

Later on my younger sister would ask me about Tada and I would tell all kinds of funny or strange stories to keep her amused and laughing.  She would tell others about it, our friends or kids she knew in school, but I didn’t.  Those were the strangers who asked about Tada that I mentioned earlier.

The death of Tada kind of suits this Halloween time some celebrate.

When I was about 11 I told everyone that Tada had sadly passed away and I was to have a funeral for her that afternoon in the local cemetery. Yeah, you heard right.  I was so sick of people asking me about her I finally had to kill her!  I took an old doll of mine that was really messed up anyway, and wrapped it in a shroud and went with my sister and some friends to that cemetery where I proceeded to desecrate the hallowed grounds by holding a mock funeral for dear little plastic Tada, whose existence served me well for about 8 years of my life.  I did it in the back some place and actually buried the doll and left it.

I sometimes imagine someone finding the body of Tada and thinking “WTF” as the kids say now.

Daily Prompt: “Rectum, Darn Near Killed ‘Um!”

When I used to work in the Automated Collection System for the Internal Revenue Service there was an email that made the rounds that someone started to make us feel better about our highly stressful position.  It claimed that there was someone who actually tested the anal thermometers so I guess that was supposed to make us feel better about the daily reamings we received dealing with the angry taxpayer calls when they found levies on their bank accounts or liens on property.  We did the dirty work for them.

According to Snopes.com, it was a joke.  Click on the site if you wish to hear the whole story.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Community

I will not be posting a photo for this photo challenge because I do not borrow other people’s work for any reason.

When I saw the word “Community” I right away thought of my new-found sitcom, “Community!”  Even though it just started it’s fifth season yesterday, January 2nd, 2014, I only recently discovered this hidden gem of a comedy series being rerun.  I purchased the first four seasons and look forward to the sharp, sometimes hysterically funny humor as well as the sometimes poignantly written dialogs that delve deeply into each of the main Community College characters played by: Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Yvette Nicole Brown, Alison Brie, Donald Glover, Jim Rash, Ken Jeong, and the group’s curmudgeon played by Chevy Chase, still funny after all these years!

I especially love the paint ball episodes!  Very well done.  If you get the chance to view an episode, you might be hooked too!
