I happened across this beautiful little video clip and knew I had to share it. Please take three minutes to watch it. It’ll be well worth your time, and might even brighten up your entire day.
Washington, D.C., April 2, 2014 – Today the Federal Bureau of Silly Statistics (FBSS) announced that April Fools pranks were down by a precipitous sixty percent over last years pranks. This continued a disturbing trend from previous years, which has seen a decline in reported pranks every year since the peak prank year of 2000.
It’s been raining, storming, and even snowing here ever since late Friday night, and I’m way over the bad weather. So for a little pick-me-up, here is a fun little YouTube video.
Thanks to the wonders of the Internet, I’ve just learned the singers behind one of my favorite Christmas songs. So, in the spirit of the Christmas season, I thought to share this with my many (more than three) readers.
My mom sent me this important and useful piece of information on disaster preparedness. Considering the number of disasters I’ve lived through these past years, I wanted to share it here.
For the first post of 2011, I thought it would be appropriate to post a YouTube clip of my all-time favorite movies about finding your dreams.
After writing, Hiding in Plain Sight, a story about the possible discovery of an Indian Burial Mound on my neighbors’ property, I began to reflect back on my own near death experience, (NDE) three years ago April 2005. I was in church helping out at a funeral for a 17 year old boy in our congregation, when I suffered a near fatal brain aneurysm.
Bigger than a rush-hour fender-bender. Bigger than a California Winter Fog-bound multi-car/truck/motorcycle traffic pileup. Bigger even than when worlds collide.
This month, the Hubble Heritage Project gives us galaxies colliding.
Like my late paternal grandmother, I love unusual names and gardening. I never met Grandma Florence as she died in 1933, twenty-five years before my birth.
Move over Dr. Phil! There’s nothing more therapeutic than mindless yardwork on a beautiful spring day.
The exercise from raking leaves, pulling weeds and disposing of the skeletons of last year’s annuals, causes a natural high. The revitalizing visual satisfaction comes after the cleanup when crocus, tulips, hyacinths, daffodils and narcissi are revealed. For a moment, all is as it should be.
My final reward is a cup of herb tea with honey on the front porch; feeling content all my hard work got my mind off the world’s troubles, even if only for an hour.
