American Idol 2019 Winner

Congratulations to Laine Hardy for winning American Idol 2019.   This was a year full of really great talent and his win is a biggie.

We did think it was odd that when Laine went home to visit his family he and his cousin jumped in a boat heading for the swamp.  Maybe Laine was doing an audition for the show “Swamp People”?  He could be the “Singing Alligator Hunter”.

The show was filled with the top 10 other contestants of course, they all need the promotion.  And then surprises like Cool and the Gang whom we thought were so old now that they would be retired.  Nope, here they were still playing and singing those oldies.  There were several other obscure so called stars, but the head liner was Carrie Underwood who became a mega-star in the world of country music.

Katy Perry wore her penguin outfit and the black and white squares pattern highlighted the 20-30 pounds she is carrying from the beginning of the year.  Katy also spent the entire show holding up the top of her low cut dress so they her “yay-yay’s” would not pop out and give the show higher ratings.

The judges Luke, Lionel, and Katy did a fine job in the selection this year.  We are looking forward to another year.

Thanks to everyone who has stopped by to read our posts.  You all know that at the bottom is a “like” button that could be used if you like a post or you can sub-scribe and get an email every time we post.

Have a G-R-E-A-T week and see you soon.  God bless!

We have nothing to add at this time except to warn senior citizens on Medicare that we received three FAKE phone calls today stating that they were from the Social Security admin. and that there was an account issue so hit 1 to find out what the issue is.  We immediately hung up and blocked the number.  Please be careful fellow citizens, you are important part of our country and world.

Answers to Slang Phrases, Some Questions We have and Editorial

Answer: Where did the phrase “Whole Nine Yards” come from?

We thought this came from the sport of football or some other sport where yards were part of the measurement.  Then one day we were watching Netflix and there was a show where some dudes were restoring a P-51 Mustang back to the original configuration.  (See picture above for P-51).  When P-51 pilots returned from a mission they usually went into a debriefing and they would be asked if they used “the whole nine yards” if they encountered a “dog-fight” with a German plane.  The ammunition for a P-51 Mustang is stored in the wing layered in a container that is 9 Yards long. If the pilot used all his ammunition in the “dog-fight” then he used the whole nine yards or in other words, he used all his ammunition.

Answer: Where did the phrase”Short End of the Stick” come from?

Found this answer on “Antiques Road-show” in a British version where a lady brought two sticks that she had no clue what they were but they were old.  The expert said this was the first time he had ever see these.  In the 1300’s when a loan was made between two gentlemen they notched a stick approximately four inches wide and depending on how deep the notches were determined the amount of the loan.  Then they split the stick and the person that owed the other guy the amount indicated had his stick shortened.  So the person with “the short stick” owed the other guy and this could be proved by placing the sticks next to each other.

Question:  Why do golfers look at the ball when they miss a putt?

The ball was aimed by the golfer and the golfer must have aimed wrong so looking at the ball indicates that the ball made the mistake when in fact the golfer was the cause.  Could it be that the golfer was in denial?  Are they looking for a gaping hole in the side of the ball that might have caused the miss-direction?  Are they looking to see if the ball is square and that’s why it went array?

Question:  Why do golf TV commentators always follow a compliment with a comment about a bad shot that the golfer might have been made sometime in their career.

The scenario is the commentator says “Wow! That was a great shot!” and then follow that comment with “I remember back in 1980 at the Masters when he had the same shot he hit it in the water and then attempted to play from the water and scored a quadruple boogie!”

Editorial:

Since Tiger Woods is back playing we watch plenty of golf and we believe that the golf commentators which are usually a bunch of one time golfers that could not keep up with the “real” pros.  Best example is Nick Faldo who was fairly famous at one time, but never great.  Just listen to Nick doing his commentary and you will hear the negativity in his comments.  Lots of “never, can’t or “no way”.  One time a reporter asked Tiger what he though about when he was putting and Tiger said “Nothing”.  We got this but this went miles above Nick’s head and he said “That is impossible.” Nick must not know that Tiger plays golf when he is in “the moment” and because he has made all the measurements and seen the angles for the putt the only thing left is to hit the putt so his mind is in a state of nothing.   We guess when Nick is over the putt he is thinking “If I miss this my kids will not go to college or if I miss left, I don’t think that will be a good putt coming back and I will probably miss my house payment and my family will be homeless and my parents will be disappointed in me and probably disown me and my family.  The queen will openly dismiss me as an English golfer and say that I am from Russia and that my family sneaked in to England back in the 1500’s with false papers….”  Then Nick has the balls to tell the viewing audience how the player we are watching should play the shot coming up.  The last thing the golfer wants to know is how Nick would play the shot because the golfer does not want to end his career being a golf commentator. We also sense quite a bit of animosity coming from the commentators who played golf when Tiger was at his height and winning just about everything which placed them in the background.

Last week we met a “Kat” and this is highly unusual for us because Kat’s are rare and after meeting this Kat we noticed that the Kat had a type of energy we have not encountered ever.  It was super serene with a touch of inquisitively.  Interesting we must say.

Thanks to all our friends who stop by and hope that the awesome mom’s out there had a great Mothers Day!  God bless all of you and thinks for stopping by.

We have nothing to say at this time but if you are out on a golf course be sure to listen for someone yelling “Fore”.  This means that a strong possibility exists that a small ball hit be the golfer coming your way has hit a ball that is off-line and coming your way.  The proper response would be to cover your head, fall to the ground if you are hit, and scream in pain so that the golfer who hit you will probably give you a golf glove with his/her autograph on it.

American Idol 2019 – Top 5

To our original followers you well know that we started this site about nine years ago because of reality shows American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance.  Our main reason is to promote people who are following their dreams and only see success.  After several years of following each we did back away because they changed the format or canceled the show like American Idol moving from Fox to ABC.  This year we are following them again and we started with American Idol 2019.

First of all we want to say that we only record these shows because we do not like commercials and on record we can fast forward past the commercials.  This weeks AI was 2 hours long and there were 85 commercials so if each commercial was a minute (Some were less than 30 seconds) out watched approximately 60 minutes of commercials out of a 120 minute long show.  Do the math!  There were 9 commercial beaks and the last break was 13 commercials.  So we record.

Katy Perry’s outfit looked to be directed toward Flower Shops and Melon growers and she succeed in getting their attention we think.  Maybe even viewers that we out there in the botanical industry. If Katy needs an assistant to dress her in the latest styles, please give a call and we will make you outstanding.  (we are one of the billions of Katy’s followers on Twitter)

Tonight two contestants were cut and that was Wade and Lacey.  All the contestants this year are outstanding and our actual inspiration for restarting our posts was Wade.  Even though he was cut tonight we think Wade highlights why American Idol started and he probably has inspired all those viewers out there in TV-Land who have people telling then they are not good enough, or you could never go on that show, or on and on about how you must listen to then because they know.  BUT instead, you listen to that voice deep inside yourself that says “Follow your dreams and get out there and show the world what you are and can do. Take that first step toward your dream and the rest will follow!”  Look at Wade, a tough time growing up and he did not stop or feel sorry for himself, he took the first step and millions have watched hi journey to this point and will for sure continue for him until he wishes to stop.  Thank you Wade.

So next week the top three will perform and this years American Idol will be chosen.  We flipped a coin to choose and it came up Liane, who is here for the second time.  It’s our opinion that Lionel is supporting Alejandro.  Alejandro a talent and a great self promoter, in fact is all of the AI shows we ever watched Alejandro has self promoted himself better then anyone before him.  Smart thinking we believe, if you don’t win then leave your mark and leave them asking for more.

Hope you voted for your favorite!

We have a challenge for all our followers.  We recently purchased two bracelets from “4oceans.com” so we can brag that we have helped remove two pounds of crap / garbage from our oceans and we challenge you folks out there in cyber-land to match us.  We plan to purchase one per week.  So come on, let’s start cleaning up Mother Earth.  Click on the link above to check the site out and save our planet.

We have nothing else to report except we are happy to report that the “Mind and Body” Class we are taking is awesome.  We will soon begin posting on the class since we are quickly becoming “Foodies”.  Now that is a miracle.  🙂

Bob Breville – Obituary

My dear friends we are gathered here to celebrate yes celebrate the passing of Bob “BCD650” Breville.  Bob was always there for us ready to provide his products when ever we asked.  Bob made the best coffee for us for at least five years and never bitched.  Then the other day after hitting the brew button Bob sprung a leak and we had coffee all over the kitchen.  We checked if there was an overload of grounds, and no, nothing looked off.  We tried again thinking maybe a second opinion was needed, but had the same result.  We are going to miss Bob because Bob provided 12 cup which usually lasted all day.   There was a time when we week doing over a pot a day and there he was, giving us what we needed without pay.

Now we have a “Ninja” Coffee Maker and it sucks.  7 Cups total?  This must be made for coffee “whimps” that probably only drink “decaf” (YUCK decaf is like drinking sewer water).  We might become tea drinkers. We are for sure going out this weekend to get a new coffee maker or a second coffee maker because the “Ninja” was bought months ago on sale (William-Sonoma) and we can’t take it back.  Yes, months ago when there was a coffee coop in the kitchen  and others attempted to replace Bob, but clear minds prevailed.  (We should check Bob for sabotage).

We must apologize to Starbuck’s because the local stores will soon show a drop in their quantities sold because we are going from 12 cups + to 7 Cups per load.  We are going to check Bob’s family for other possibilities, maybe even a 20 cup model. (Heaven)

So Bob we say “We hope to see you in our next life and if we come back as a Breville ‘BCD650’ model we will consider ourselves proud.  We can only hope we will not be asked to make “decaf”.  That would be karma huh?”

Thanks to all our friends who have stopped by to read our posts.  Blessings go out to all of you.

We have nothing else to add except to say to the History Channel that “Forged In Fire” has to only be watched by people who want to learn how to make a razor sharp sword so they can go with their friends and be the only “cut-up”.  (Stay out of crowds)

“Oddity Odysseys” on You Tube – Review

We found this “gem” of a site when we were cruising through You Tube randomly playing a variety of subject matter like “Beaver Dam removal”.  Among the “crazy” sites on You Tube this site stood out mainly because the description is “Discover California’s Hidden and Forgotten Secrets”.

The video stars are Bethany and Drew and they will take you to various “odd” places around mainly Los Angeles and San Francisco Bay areas.  The episode that caught our eye was “The Wave Organ” in the bay area.  On every episode that we have seen so far they begin by identifying where they are going, and give specific directions and tips.  Like if parking is an issue they suggest you might consider taking public transportation.  On the “wave Organ” they suggest you only go during the high tide cycle of the Pacific Ocean because the wave action is at its peak.  If a hike is required they suggest taking lots of water and make sure your attire fits the hike.  If there are time limitations for the site you will be visiting they also report what hours of the day the site is open.

You can visit their web site at >>>> OddityOdysseys Site <<<< click here

Or their “You Tube” Site at >>>>>> YouTube Site <<<<<<<<< click here

You can also follow them on Twitter (We do) or on Facebook.  Check out their site for the various places available.

What we especially like on the video’s is the kind banter between Bethany and Drew and when they are describing where they are they always describe the area they are walking through to get to the main subject.  They talk in plain English and don’t use abbreviations or queue words so that you have to Google every other word to get a definition.  They do a great job in making you feel like you are right there with them on your way to the site.  If you don’t live in California it’s still interesting and if you’re planning a vacation to California we suggest you go to their site and play the various video’s that might have sites to visit around the area you are visiting.   After three days at Disneyland Mom and Dad deserve visiting a weird site and the kids might like where they go also.

On a scale of 1 to 10 we give “Oddity Odyssey” a 20.  Yes folks, we highly recommend visiting their web site or viewing the You Tube Video’s.

Thank you Drew and Bethany for the opportunity to get out and about to visit the various places you come up with.

We have nothing else to report except to say God Bless all to our followers and subscribers and are happy to announce that we completed our task of Physical Ascension which we have been working on for five years.  Great place to be and of course we will share with all.  Namaste

Healing Meditation – Beginning Meditation – Mind Body Connection

The following post is a copy of the first meditation we learned for healing our body.  It’s a basic meditation we learned in the 90’s, but we still use it to this day and it’s the meditation we used for 90 days in a row to heal (Get rid of) the nodules in our lungs causing COPD.  We are dedicating this post to our new students taking the “Mind Body Connection” Class at Stanford Integrative Medicine.  Search Keyword: Payrovi

Start by getting into a comfortable position like sitting in a chair with your feet firmly on the floor, hands palm to palm on your lap, and your head slightly tilted down. We use the chair, but the whole point is to be comfortable and like we say in other posts, if you’re comfortable standing on your head, then stand on your head.  Remember when we start that if anything interrupts you always go back to your breath.  Your breath is your anchor, your “go back to” place.

Now take three deep breaths and on the out breath release your stress energy and on the in breath bring in relaxing energy and feel yourself relaxing with each breath.  Now start breathing through your nose slowly in and out, in and out, this is your constant.  Visualize above your head a lake of Green water/energy.  (Green is healing energy) A huge lake just for you to use and at the bottom is a funnel down to the top of your head.  See the flow coming down into the top of your head entering your body.  Continue breathing and enjoy this healing energy entering your body knowing that it is for you to use to heal.

Visualize the energy filling your head down to the DNA level and continuing in a downward movement.  (No rush)  At the base of the neck visualize energy flowing down each arm and directly down to your heart and continue on through your body on to your feet.  Fill your body with this healing energy and continue breathing.  If there is a specific place in your body you wish to focus on then visualize that place healing as the energy swirls around it.  If it’s your immune system or cells, then visualize the DNA returning to your original healthy state. Visualize your body healing and see the healing energy exiting your heart as it flows by and being sent out to all the need it.

Just relax and enjoy the healing.  If a thought interrupts then in your mind say to that thought “I see you but I am going to continue my meditation”.  The thought will go away is a few seconds.  Continue the breath and energy movement.  Eventually the thoughts will cease and you will be in a place of peace, love, and light.  Feel the bliss, the complete silence, the connection with all that is. Relax and enjoy.  If you had any questions before you started meditation then this is where you will get the answers.  You will know that it’s an answer for you and not a thought.  You will feel it and know that it comes from a higher place.  Continue the breath and when you are ready to complete the meditation be thankful and ot grateful for this moment.  Slowly comeback to this moment and open your eyes.  (Smiling?)

There isn’t any specific length of time to meditate.  At first five minutes is great start and as you practice your meditation will grow in length and simply enjoy each moment.  Even when you are done, know that your healing is continuing as you go about your day.

As we meditate, we always are sending energy out to the Universe and all that can use the healing.  We say “we” because we invite our Guardian Angels, our Spirit Guides, all the Arch-angels, Buddha, Jesus, Allah, and all the leaders of all the religions to joint us in our meditation.  They are always here for you and you can call on them always and in all ways.  We have one on one conversation with them many times though out the day.  Remember folks, you do not have any limits.  You can choose to be “you” and they will help you always.  Just ask!  Simple as that “Ask”.  Jesus knows that when we say “Hey dude” we are talking to him.  Have fun with this.  Experiment with questions or actions just to see the results.  When we are in traffic at a stop light we sometimes focus on another driver with their head turned away and see if we can get them to turn around.

We have nothing to add at this time except to let you know that you are loved and God is always with you.  We are all here for each other and here to share with all others our experiences.  God bless all !

Note:  During the typing of this post we are listening to a You Tube video

Quit Smoking the Easy Way – Sharing Our Experience (2019 update)

xsmoking

I am happy to report that this January marks 6 years since I last smoked a cigarette. An accomplishment I am very proud of and I am going to share with others who are attempting to quit smoking but struggling with the task. So if you are a non-smoker you might move on to another site, but then again you might wish to share this site to someone you know that is attempting to quit smoking.
I found that when I decided to quit, I created the intention to quit smoking, and focused on the task at hand the solutions came my way quickly.

2019 Update: In January 2013 we were diagnosed with COPD Level II, which was nodules in the lungs (CT Scan), but too small to biopsy.  They said that they needed to do a CT Scan every three months to monitor and if in December the nodules are big enough then they would do a biopsy, and 99.99% start Chemotherapy immediately.  The appointment was booked ahead of time for three hours.  This is how sure they were. So the 2nd CT scan showed minor growth.  The third showed same as the 2nd.  Then the final CT scan showed that 95 % of the nodules were gone.  Yes gone!  The doctors said “This never happens!  COPD does not get cured, but you no longer have COPD!”.  My pulmonary doctor said “You can fire me. You no longer need me.” To this day every doctor who looks at my chart says the same thing “This never happens!” ans ask me what I did to cure my COPD.  I am a Reiki Level II Healer and every night I sent healing energy to my lungs and entire body.  I said 10 Hail Marys along with the healing. (I wanted to cover all bases) Thats it.  I totally believe there are some things we can self heal.

I was smoking one pack a day at the time, and I was going though a severe chest cold which seemed to a fairly regular event at back then. I also had been smoking for over five decades, yes folks, more than fifty years without ever seriously attempting to quit. So here is my solution to quitting which turned out to be easier than expected.

First I met a doctor that had organized a group of folks that under her supervision had quit smoking using a medication named Wellbutrin. The instructions were one pill a day for three days and then start with two pills a day and continue to smoke. When the third day arrived I had already cut down from 20 to 15 cigarettes a day. I found that I had a reaction to taking the second pill and the doctor said to just stay with the one a day. Within 10 days I was at 3 cigarettes a day and seemed to get stuck at three. (Ask your doctor about a class or a recommendation)

Then one day I was on my Facebook page when I saw a symbol on the right side that was a cigarette with a red crossed “X” over it. I stared at the symbol because I never click on those “pages you need to visit” symbols, but I went with a gut feeling and clicked on it. I then went to a page about quitting smoking by Alan Carr and it led me to a PDF download of a book named “The Easy Way to Stop Smoking” written by Alan Carr in 1985. I downloaded the file and read the book in one sitting. I have not smoked a cigarette since completing the book. (Thank you Allen)

Click here for a link to the Quit smoking site PDF File

What this book did for me was to point out that all the thoughts about why I liked smoking or why that cigarette with a cup of coffee first thing in the morning tasted so good, or yeah there is a chance of getting cancer, but not me, etc. The answer is those thoughts are coming from your ADDICTION! Yes your addiction is pointing out how much you enjoy smoking and how special you are for smoking without any issues and of course you are so special that cancer is not an option.

So the actual quitting was easy. I found the tough part was about 2-3 weeks later when I felt an urge for a cigarette when a situation occurred that when I was smoking, would smoke a cigarette. I have talked with other people who said this was the part that when they felt some stress, they automatically went back to smoking thinking they would attempt to quit at a later date. (They rarel do) My though was “I did not quit smoking to go right back to it!” So what I did was I immediately noticed the situation that was causing the urge and then stopped what I was doing. I sat down and started a simple meditation where I focused on my in and out breath knowing that the urge would pass in about 20 seconds. Sure enough, it did and the next time the same situation came up the urge was non-existent. I did this ever time I had the smoking urge and eventually it was a rare event.

These days focusing on your breathing during a meditation is called “Mindfulness Meditation” and classes on how to do Mindfulness Mediation are being offered by most hospitals across the country (For a fee). If you are luck enough to live in or near Redwood City California the Insight Meditation Center offers classes for free (Donations are accepted). Check their web site for more information

If you are interested in on-line classes here is a link to the Google Mindfulness on-line course, yes folks, Goggle has a course on mindfulness and from what we understand they support their employees in using this method to meditate. You even get a certificate when you complete the course.

Expedition Unknown – Josh Gates – Mysteries of Jesus (S6 Ep2)

Over the last six weeks History Channel ran a six part min-series about the life of Jesus based on the bible, and we look at that as a total waste of time because Josh was coming with tonight’s show.   Doesn’t the History Channel know that every human on this planet born before 12/24/2018 know the story or has heard about the story of Jesus.  All you need to know is the beginning and the end because the Bible does not have very much about Jesus’ early years so to make a six seek series they had to “embellish” the presentation.  First of all, they had to “boost” the story line because we all know it’s a boring read and “boost” some of the key points because we all know the Bible is compromised and not complete works of all the writings.  The contents of current Bible were decided by a bunch of kings that were working with a political view of what should be included and what is not and they left out a lot of stuff.  So folks none of this fits our version which comes from our research.

In tonight’s show Josh says that many of the chapters that are named like “John”, “Joshua”, etc were not written by the person whose name is on the chapter.  The gospels were all written years later and by people other than the named.  Josh interviewed many so called “experts” and they all could not agree on where Jesus was actually born and none of them even mentioned the “star” the Wise-man supposedly followed.  The year that Jesus was born is also under question also as to the actual date..

We mainly tuned in to get some new Jesus jokes from Josh for this upcoming Christmas.  Instead we thought about many questions and revised our version.  Josh said “In the beginning Mary was told by Gabriel that she was carrying Gods child.”  Obviously she did not know and was probably shocked then she did not know that God impregnated her, which brings up our questions about the sin of rape.  If a woman is impregnated without her knowledge and without her consent, that is considered rape, a mortal sin.  We think Mary had an affair when Joseph was out of town so she needed a excuse and she made up the outlandish story that God got her PG, OR Joseph plied her with wine and she forgot they did the deed.  Either way we doubt that God did it.  If you believe that God did do it then you need to determine if it was rape or not.  If not, then good luck explaining to the Angel at the Pearly Gates why you believe that and be sure to look around, because you will see Satan with a huge smile. (We are speaking in Christian words because we don’t belief in heaven or hell).  Okay, lets move on to the end.  Mary Madeline (Carrying Jesus’ baby) and several of Jesus’ friends moved the rock and when Jesus came to they all went to the coast where they caught a boat to Spain and Jesus and Mary lived a happy life together.  Now you’re thinking what about the resurrection?  Nowhere in the Bible says that anyone witnessed the resurrection and besides, the soul is what resurrects not the body. (See Christianity 101) Also we have seen several shows where they are searching for the remains of Jesus and they never have found them.  Did they look in Spain?  No!  In one episode they went down deep in the temple Mount to where there was a spot where it was believed held Jesus’ remains and when they dug they found nothing. So they continued digging and still nothing.  The excuse they gave is that someone must have taken the remains.  Yes but there were not any remains to be taken so they had to lie to get out of the embarrassment of finding nothing.

By the way if you’re questioning why we don’t believe that Jesus died on the cross our logic screams out that anybody who can walk on water, feed thousands of people bread and fish from a meager stock, turn water into wine, and cure illnesses and even bring back people from the dead can surely fake their own death.  Come on folks, it you believe the written words, then we do honor you, but we also know that you must be a Trump supporter because they believe anything.

So now you have our version of the fictional bible that we have read, but only for knowledge of those days and we have since removed the information from our past memory.  We have also read that the Vatican has the original Sanskrit version of the Bible but they refuse to release it to the public.  The Vatican is hiding a bunch of stuff and maybe when Jesus dissolves Christianity we will know the truth.  The New Golden Age will cleanse many things.

Josh spent most of his time running all over the countryside meeting experts that all had different views on where Jesus was born. Questions like “Why would a very pregnant Mary ride a burrow a hundred miles?” came up.  Nobody mentioned the star (Which was a UFO).  If they called Jesus “Jesus of Nazareth” then he must have been born there.  Good point we think.  Then another guy said there is a second “Bethlehem” in Galilee.

Maybe someday someone will admit the truth but in the meantime tourist trade is booming at the so called sites identified by people who know nothing about the truth and believe in the all mighty dollar over Christianity, which in itself is a money making religion even though the chaos.

We have nothing else to report except to thank Josh for his great information.  The rest of the story we believe will be revealed during The New Golden Age.  Other than talking with Jesus and all the other dudes and “dudettes” we are done with this subject.  We have our belief system and we preach or discuss our system everywhere we go.  We just had a great discussion with a Muslim Uber driver and because we have read the Muslim Bible we find it closer to our belief system than the Christian Bible.  Maybe those kings who were deciding the contents of the Christian Bible wanted to make it the biggest and longest bible so they could have bragging rights when inter-religious priests were arguing they could say “Our Bible is bigger than yours!”

So Easter is just a few days away we need to get out and buy some eggs, which raises another question, why eggs?  Rabbits don’t lay eggs so where does the Easter bunny get the eggs?  Does the egg represent the resurrection of the bunny, because it’s a chicken egg so it can only represent the resurrection of the bunny that hides eggs all over the house and when one egg is found three months later the bunny will not be accountable for the smell?

God bless all of you out there in cyberland and who have stooped by to read our posts.  To “beauty and bones.com” we say “We honor your beliefs” dear, we just happen to have our own.

Facebook – The Sign

For those who have never been anywhere near the Facebook Headquarters on Hacker Way, Palo Alto there is a Facebook sign at where the intersection of Hackers way and Bay Front Expressway.  Hackers Way is the entrance and as you enter to your right is the Facebook sign.  We have been past this sign hundreds of times and have never seen it without people (Tourists mostly) in front of it taking “selfies”, taking pictures of friends in front of the sign,  or just taking pictures of the sign.  (At upper left of this post is the sign).  When we were driving for Uber we would get requests from visitors going to take the Facebook Tour, yes they have a tour and no we have never been on the tour, and the visitors would asked to be dropped off at the sign.

We have heard that the tour is pretty good, but the people are asked not to discuss when they leave.  It was our Uber experience that the people first go on the Google tour and then Uber to Facebook for their tour.

So one day we had a Doctors appointment at Stanford and we hitched a ride with a friend and had him drop us off at the Facebook sign.  Our friend then would continue on Bay Front to catch US 101 to San Francisco.  It’s cheaper to catch a Uber at Facebook so that is why we were dropped off there.  One day there was a group of about ten people in front of the sign so we walked over and asked where they were from.  The said Norway and that they stopped here before going on the tour.  They said they were having a good time visiting the US and wanted to get some pictures at the sign.  As the Norwegian group started to walk away a guy followed by another guy carrying a microphone boom and another guy carrying a professional looking camera walked up and said “Hello” to us.  They said they were from Germany and were documenting their trip to the US and asked if me and my friends would like to be in the video. We said, “They are also visitors but we will ask them”.  We called over to the Norwegian group and asked them if they would like to be in the video and they all said “sure”.  So back they came and everyone started taking in their native language but since we did not speak either Norwegian or German we blurted out “All of you are welcome to the US and we hope you all are having a great time!” We said this in Klingon, yes from Star Trek the Klingons.  When we lived in Southern California in the late eighties we were in a Star Trek Fan Club and we all learned how to speak Klingon so we could talk without other people knowing what we were talking about.  We have not used Kilngon since then and were surprised when we blurted out that statement.  Then to our surprise several Norwegians and the three Germans started talking Klingon back to us.   It sounded a bit weird and the more we talked we started laughing so hard we could hardly stand up.  Then people driving north bound on Bayfront when they got the stop light they would roll down their windows and ask what was going on and of course we would all say to them in Klingon “We are just having a good time with our new friends” and laugh all that much harder.  There were even a few people in the cars that said something in Klingon back to us, which of course prompted belly busting laughter.  The German guys were taping the whole event at the one guy was narrating while the camera man was panning the entire scene.

Then someone pointed up and said “What is that?” We looked up and low and behold there was a drone about fifty feet hovering over us.  When we all looked up the drone came down to about ten feet above us and a voice said “Is there a problem with someone or are you all just having a good time.  We are part of the Facebook security team and it was reported that traffic at the main entrance was backing up because a group of people at the sign were seemed to be having a really great time or there might be an issue.” We said “We are just having a great time talking Klingon to each other and taking pictures of the sign.  We did not notice that traffic was at a standstill and did not see that KRON 4 News truck parked across the street.  We will beak up so that these people can move over to the main complex so they could take the tour.”  The drone said, “Can you wait about ten minutes because we have a Star Trek Group here at Facebook and they want to come and join you at the sign.  The all speak Klingon and rarely do they get to meet other people who know the language.”  Sure enough, we peaked around the sign and could see about fifty people coming our way out the door of the building.   Now we had a fairly large group all taking Klingon to each other and of course laughing and hugging from meeting new friends.  One of the Facebook guys said “Let’s please start moving toward the main building entrance so you all can take your tour and continue to chat.”  We stood in place as the Norwegians and Germans’ started moving toward the main building.  The Face book guy asked “Aren’t you coming?” We said “No, we need to catch an Uber and get to Stanford for a doctors appointment.  We just met those people when we stooped her.”  The guy then said “Look behind you, total traffic tie up and I doubt if you will get an Uber in the next thirty minutes so why not join us and we shall make sure you get to Stanford.”  So we did.

We all ended up in a large conference room where the people going on the tour introduced them selves and the German guys continued recording.  Many of the Facebook “Star Trekkies” folks were exchanging emails with the visitors.  After about forty-five minutes they started the tour and an intern came up to me and said “Please follow me.  One of the VP’s has a meeting at Stanford and said you can ride over with him.”  So I followed and went up several flights of stairs.  We though it odd that we were going up, but assumed we were going to the VP’s office.  Then when the intern swung open a door marked roof, we could see and hear a helicopter.  We were being waved over to get in and so we did.  The VP said “This should cure the traffic issue huh?” and we both laughed.  Over too the Stanford Helicopter pad we went and the view was awesome.  In just a few minutes we arrived and we thanked the VP for the ride and wished him good luck in his meeting.

Best day in a long time ever!  We have nothing else to report except that when the nurse checked my blood-pressure it was on the high side when I woke up from the anesthesia.

Thanks all for stopping by and taking a few moments of your precious time.  God Bless you!

Balancing Chakra’s Meditation 101

We mention often that our Chakra’s get out of balance, mainly because if your Sun Sign is Cancer the Chakra’s get out of balance easily.  However, for all of us, when you feel scattered, or can’t seem to keep anything in focus, it could be that your Chakra’s are out of balance.  In general, keeping our Chakra’s in balance also cleans the negative energy out of a given Chakra.  There are hundreds of Chakra’s in our bodies, but to start we will include a link to a meditation video that will display in the following order the color identified with each Chakra and as the meditation progresses the colors will change.  We use the color as a visualization of the energy we are sending to a given Chakra.  Some call this a fine tuning of our spiritual body.

Order of Meditation:

<<<<<<< click here for meditation link >>>>>>>>>>

       Chakra Name                           Body Location                        Sanskrit Name                            Color

  1.  Root Chakra                     Base of spine                         Muladhara                                Red
  2.  Sacral Chakra                   2 inches above Root            Swadhisthana                           Orange
  3.  Solar Plexus Chakra        2 inch above Sacral              Manipura                                  Yellow
  4.  Heart Chakra                    Middle of chest                    Anahata                                     Green
  5.  Throat Chakra                  Base of throat                       Vishudha                                   Blue
  6.  Third Eye Chakra             Middle of Forehead             Ajna                                            Indigo
  7.  Crown Chakra                  Top of Head                         Sahasrara                                  Violet

Mediation pose or posture is in general sitting cross legged, back straight, arms on knees, and palms resting on knees face up.  We mostly sit in a chair feet securely on floor, arms resting in lap, with palms up.

Start by taking three deep cleansing breaths – inhale love energy and exhale negative energy.  On each breath feel all your muscles relaxing. It’s not required to use the meditation video but we have found the sound to be usually comforting and it’s good to get used to the sound because other video’s use the sound for healing.

Here is our sequence.  For example we would start by focusing on the Root Chakra and using Red energy send it to the Root Chakra.  We visualize a meter over the chakra that has one hand and it indicates where the current balance of the chakra is.  Say our Root is 50%, then the hand would point straight down and move toward the top as you bring in energy.  When the meter is pointing up, this indicates the chakra is in balance.  So relax and wait for the next chakra to come up on the video display or of you are not using the video, move on to the next chakra.  Feel free to create your own sequence or rhythm.  Because the order of meditation above is a standard used on most of the You Tube videos, our standard is the reverse and as you will see on our next posting “Balancing Chakra’s Advanced” we use eleven Chakra’s and make sure to send energy to Mother Earth.

If you have any questions at all please don’t hesitate to email us.  If you are anywhere in the San Francisco area we could set up a meeting or groups meet and we will do a guided meditation and or discussion session.  Thanks all of you for yor support.

This post is dedicated to Doctor Mary Jane Reyes and who we will be sending Reiki Energy to for a week to assist in her meditation.

We have nothing to add at this time except God bless all.
