"The new international view of life which places humanity before all nations has produced a greater level of cooperation among many nations. The Earth has the potential to become a global community; this does not require that nations disappear, but on the contrary, submerged groups of people will continue to emerge as new countries. But Earth is too small and too populated to continue in any wasteful competition; cooperation at global and regional levels is already necessary in many…Continue

Have you ever experienced the felling that when apart from a loved one..you felt in your heart they were with you as if they really were there.
here's a Robert W Service poem about that.
I know a garden where the lilies gleam,
And one who lingers in the sunshine there;
She is than white-stoled lily far more fair,
And oh, her eyes are heaven-lit with dream!
I know a garret, cold and dark and drear,
And one who toils and toils with…

Nite now and the dreams come slowly surely,
it's a time when I can go back and change things
from the way they were, to the way I want them to be
like when Susan stayed around and Frisko was ours..we danced then..and her cancer never came.
Times when Jimmy and I never went on that last patrol
and both of us came home.
Times when Home was a friendly place and my step father
didn't laugh when I
asked with tears in my eyes…Continue

Inuit legend gives us the tale of Qalupalik who is described as half human, half sea creature. Like other mermaids, she lives in the Arctic seas and is always searching for disobedient children who roam too close to the shoreline.
They describe her as having long wild hair, green skin, and fingernails so long they almost look like claws. She wears a garment called an amautik which is worn by Inuit women to hold their babies on their backs, sort of like a back pack. That’s how she…Continue

Makes this old woman Smile all the time..

I probably will never see El Monte on a
or El Segundo washed by winter rain.
I never knew these towns existed-if they do,
outside of the obituary page that states
how many boys came home today in boxes
made of steel.
I'm well aware that some have died
from Chicago too
but it's the El Nowhere towns
I think about this morning
and the young men the whole town knew.
Today some children running down the hill

In September of 2005, on the first day of school, Martha Cothren, a History teacher at Robinson High School in Little Rock , did something not to be forgotten. On the first day of school, with the permission of the school superintendent, the principal and the building supervisor, she removed all of the desks in her classroom.
When the first period kids entered the room they discovered that there were no desks.
'Ms. Cothren, where are our desks?'
She replied, 'You can't…Continue

Well today is a day to Honor all Veterans and hopefully you will.
Fortunately i am old enough and have much history that shows how even back in the early 1900's our Military and Veterans were part of our schools education. Way back then there were military pictures of our Brave, Honoring them and teaching why they deserved Respect. Nothing in my heart will ever change how I feel about our Veterans and those who serve today.. But there was a time when our Government and some Citizens…

My backyard grown sugar pie pumpkins are finally ripening and a few of the pumpkins ended up being somewhat small and weren't worth the effort to process into pumpkin puree. So, what to do with these little guys? I wanted to do something new and, not having grilled pumpkins before, I was quite excited to give it a try.
During grilling, the…Continue

"Once, man and those in the water were linked. They inspired us.They spoke of the future. Man listened and it became real. But man does not listen very well.
Man's need to own everything led him deeper into the land. The magic world of the ones that lived in the ocean and the world of man separated.
Through the centuries, their world and all the inhabitants of it stopped trying. The world became more violent. War upon war played out as there were no guides to listen to. Now…Continue

That Silent Tear
The song plays and a silent tear rolls down her check
She can never forget the sacrifices so many made
The many notices of another life lost
All the condolences sent out to the Families
Nor can she forget those who returned with torn bodies and souls
Yes the song plays and the tears silently fall
Because she knows her Brothers and Sisters who wore the Uniforms
Will also remember with sadness in their…Continue
