Gluten Free and Sugar Free starts today

Here is what led up to our decision and it’s mainly because two people in my life suggested too go with this.  We do feel good, but there are nagging aches and pains that keep coming and going.  My sleep is not so good and we are scheduled to take the sleep analysis test in February, and we will, but we are still going to do this.  My niece listed about 10 things that made her life batter and our other friend said it changed her life.

Normally we would not announce a major life change, but we will be posting our progress along the way and we will include any “hiccups”.  Hey humans are not perfect so straying is part of the journey.  We are going to apply the same procedure that we used to quit smoking.  Any urge or decision on a type of food will be handled with a mindfulness meditation, just like handling smoking urges.  (We have been smoke free for 6 years this month).

The sugar free is a huge change for us.  Good grief!  We love our junk foods like Gold Fish, Sugar Frosted Flakes, Honey Nut Cheerios, or any cereal that is “sugar saturated”.  Then the candies out there like Butterfingers, Snickers, and just about any candy on the market.  Then the hidden foods with sugar will be a challenge and this is something we want to report.  If we find a food that says “Gluten Free” and is not, we will report it to you.  So to the companies that say they are Gluten Fee, we are telling you now that we will find you and expose your “fake” claims.  Sure it sells food, but not with exaggerated claims or in English, your lies.   If you are invested in the market on junk food stock we suggest you sell soon.  Please take your profits and donate to a nonprofit organization of your choosing.  If you stay in, then it’s your own risk and we can not be held accountable.

So we started by dumping all our stash’s of sugar and right now we are drinking coffee without sugar.  This is huge in itself! 🙂 We are now appreciating the taste of coffee and need to research is this coffee is gluten free.  We think so, but hey, we will check it out.  Then there is my all time favorite junk food a Quarter Pounder with Cheese.  (We are sitting here thinking about this one)  Bye-bye quarter pounder, our health is more important.  (I can hear my arteries cheering).  Then there is pizza and a zillion other fast foods.  Compared to smoking this will be a challenge and we are thinking that maybe becoming vegan would be the way to go.  (Something to consider)

We do love pasta and that will soon become are new friend.  The sauces will be checked but we like butter as a topping. No cheese of course.  Anchovies are another topping that is a long time favorite.  We doubt if gluten can exist in anchovies, but we will check.

Looks like we are starting a new and exciting adventure and our intent to the universe is to send us someone or a mob or two to guide us as we progress along.  We will be doing some heavy meditations to keep our mind clear so we will see the answers or the people who will be sent.  There has to be a few gluten free souls that came down with us in our soul group. (This where they will surface to join up in our happy journey)

We thank all our subscribers and followers for stopping by an checking out our posts, and to the friends that know us personally please pick yourself off the floor and continue with a great day.

We have nothing else to report at this time except to thank “Ladi” and Jane for their input and support.

Christmas Shopping 2018

Shopping is usually not at the top of our list except at Christmas.  We like to wish everyone Merry Christmas as we move about the stores or when we are standing in line to meet Santa.  We stand in line for people who might need to use the washroom or run an errand.  Of course we ask everyone we are going to get a present for and they all, yes all, answer “I have no idea.”  This Christmas we want nothing except a card and a hug.  We have converted to a minimalist.  We have everything we need and if something comes up where we need something special, the Universe usually sends what we need.

We do remember the one Christmas that pushed us to our limits.  The special child we were buying for wanted one of those toys that come out at Christmas and this time it was hotter selling than free money.  The think ahead professional shoppers ere all on the store lists that give them first choice.  We did try calling, but the wait for an agent for most stores was an hour and the music was a radio station that was not exactly on the channel so you got static and music.  So we packed food and strong coffee and we had a list of stores loaded in our GPS.  One by one the only open space was about a mile away from the entrance, the store was crawling room only, and of course they were out of what we were looking for.  Six hours later we completed the GPS list and stopped to think about where to go next.  So we meditated and focused on the toy.  We did get an answer form the meditation, but the store that came up was a Christmas ornament store just down the street where we lived.  Because we trust, off we went and parked in front, there were not too many people, and they had what we were looking for.  It was almost overwhelming how happy we were.  We found out that they had received the toy by accident and because they knew it was popular so they kept the load.  Mission accomplished and we took an oath that from now on we will be shopping on-line only.

Someone mentioned shopping on “Black Friday” and that brought a fond memory to mind when we were driving for Uber.  We picked up a couple of people that were going from Palo Alto to downtown San Francisco at about noon.  The rout was 101 North to downtown, about 35 miles.  They did mention that they expected the traffic to be heavy and we had no idea what it was like.  To the surprise of all of us the minute we got on 101 these was hardly any traffic at all.  Then came the miracle, once we got up to speed we did not touch the brakes until we were exiting the 101.  We have taken this rout many times and when we say miracle, we mean miracle.  After the couple exited and we were on the way back the same thing happen and the traffic was so light that the closest car in front of me was a good mile away.  We should have taken a picture but we were to busy enjoying a once in 1,000,000,000,000 experience.  Nothing in our entire Uber experience ever came close again except the time we were crossing Death Valley, but that wasn’t in an Uber.  The cool thing about that experience was two F-104’s buzzed our car about 200 feet off the ground.  We think they were showing us what “real” speed was even though we were going 120 MPH.  We got their point.

So to any of you who are last minute shoppers thinking you are going to get a deal, we hope you do, because there are another million others doing the same thing.  Promise you will take your time and wish everyone a Merry Christmas with a smile and the karma should be enough that you will get what you want.

Karma Driving Hint:  Back in the day when we did a lot of driving a driver cuts us off we would go into a tirade curing and carrying on for at least 10 minutes.  Then we were watching a show and a person said that instead of throwing a fit when someone cut them on they said to the other driver through the windshield “God bless you and great job of driving!”  That’s all and no tirade.  Two seconds and done.  The traffic Gods will smile and you will get great Traffic Karma.

We want to thank all of our subscribers for supporting our site and we hope to see some of you along the way.  Please be safe and cheerful because others will probably join you.

We have nothing to report at this time except to send some warm weather to Half Moon Bay and the entire bay area.  Many blessing to all.

Project Baseline – Make Your Mark on Map of Human Health

Several weeks ago we applied for Project Baseline link and to our delight we were accepted.  This is a research project that will monitor 10,000 people all over the United States for five years.  The main participants in the Bay Area are Stanford Medicine, Duke University School of Medicine, Google, and Verily.  This coincides with our Universal Mission to make a difference in humanity and elevate the spiritual vibration of everyone we meet.  This is a win / win project.

Our first appointment was Monday and we had an awesome Uber Drivers named Robert.  Right off, it was like Robert and I had know each other forever and as we progressed along the route when we were on North 101 agreed that we were suppose to meet and had a great conversation.  We talked about how we were all connected and we discussed my Belief System which we have now named “Oneism”.  So if we use “Oneism”: you will know what we are talking about and the next post will be a reminder of what it means.

We arrived at the Project Baseline Stanford Office and we wished Robert a great Christmas.  We love to know about other peoples experience and Robert’s was really interesting.  The entire trip was a learning experience for both of us.

Prior to coming for our appointment Project Baseline had sent several emails about what the first appointment was going to cover over the six to seven hours.  (Free lunch and it was great).  Christine (Fake name) greeted us.  I noticed that Christine looked like she was 14 years old and because we had to know, so we asked Christine is she was in her teens.  She laughed and said she was in her late twenties.  I said “you would be a tough date because you would be getting carded everywhere you went.”  Christine then explained that we would start by filling out several forms, like consent forms etc.  Then go do blood work, measure height and get weight, and other tests.  Then at the end of the day we went over the devices that they provided to take with us.  First the “smart watch” that is worn 24/7 and once a day we are required to take an ECG (We took it just now).  The watch has the time, date, and takes the ECG and that’s all.  Then at night we put the watch in a “charging dock” that sends the data, sync’s the watch, and charges it.  The other device is “Easy Sense live” which is a flat device that is placed under our mattress under where our heart would be when we are asleep.  This device streams data 24/7.  Once placed you are done.

At the end of the day Christine surprised us with a T-Shirt, water bottle, a very nice carrying bag, and folder to hold our brochures and devices to take with us.  Christine did mention that they are still looking for additional candidates in the Bay area so if your interested please go to this link >>> Projectbaseline.com <<<<<.   We must say that Christine was awesome and answered every question we had, was clear in explaining all the tests and documents, has a great sense of humor, and of course be the end of the day we had he doing Mindfulness Meditation and visiting this site.  Then there was Lisa who took an hour to go over our heath history from day 1.  All the operations we had since birth.  We of course discuss meditation and we told her about the “Insight Meditation Center” (Click on name for link) in Redwood City where we went to learn Mindfulness Meditation.  On the link is the schedule of classes and there is another link to all the teachings via audio.  You can read the description and listen to the teaching or download it and it’s all free.  There were other folks that we neglected to get their names, but we will follow up with getting their names on our next visit.  Everyone was awesome and we are looking forward to our next appointment.  The lady that did the breath test said her bull dog (Cute picture) was having an issue with her hip, so we asked her name and it is “Marlyn Monroe”. (Big laugh).  We volunteered to send some healing Reiki Energy to Marlyn.

A few days later we received a phone call from our “Baseline Buddy”, which is a person we can call with any questions or complaints we might have.  Our buddies name is Zelda and she has answered every question we have had and if she can not answer, she will follow up when she gets the answer.  To Zelda’s boss Angela, “Zelda is awesome.  Please give her a gold star!”.

Then it was time to go and we wished everyone seasons greeting and reinforced the need to meditate.  This time my Uber ride was with Dmitry who was Russian  and was in the USA for 3 years.  He and his family came here asking for and getting asylum because he was a dissident and was worried about his health in Russia.  The conversation started off slowly and we chatted as we progressed.  Then just when we started to cross the bay on RT-92 there was an accident on the bridge and we were re-routed to the RT-84 bridge which was almost back were we started.  So of course we said “Dmitry you know why this happened?  It’s because we are suppose to continue this conversation and discuss meditation.  Poof!  It was like old friends meeting after not seeing each other for many years. He even mentioned that usually the traffic is terrible this time of day (5;00 PM) but its like traffic is getting out of our way.  (We did not tell him that we sent out an intention to have our “Traffic Angels” to clear the way as needed).  We both agreed that we were suppose to meet and even though the possibility for a second ride was next to impossible, we might just meet again, because in our Universe nothing is impossible.

So that’s the end of the day and we could feel the great energy flowing from meeting all these amazing people.

Please if you out there in Cyber-land know of anyone that would like to volunteer for Project Baseline please send them to the web site. We are dedicating this post to Jane who we supported through her chemo and she has now become our hero.

We have nothing else to report except we now have a mission to meet everyone in our “Soul Group” (search site for definition).  In order for the Soul Group to flourish spiritually we need to meet everyone and others outside the group.  When we share we not only grow, but so does the group and the individual we are sharing with if they are not in our group.  This leads to the vibration of Mother Earth getting raised and this is another mission we are on.  We have asked on a prior post for people to send Mother Earth as much positive energy as possible.  Several folks are doing this, but we must add by getting out there and meet as many people as possible and report our experience here to share with all of you.

Thank you all for your support and we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2019.

Discovery Channel Reality show “Border Live”

The promotion on this is “see whats really going on at the Mexican Border” with the migrants crossing the boarder.  It suppose to be live, but we tuned in to the first episode and it was “TAPED”.  We we watching at night and they were working is broad day light.

Now if you think they are going to show you everything, then you are as delusional as Donnie Trump.  You think you will see the Border Patrol or I.C.E. tearing children away from their parents?  Or placing the children in camps created for men and then the children dying of dehydration like the little girl a few days ago.  The Trump Administration blamed the dad, but when they were fact checked it turned out the little girl was put in a camp created for men and so far away from any help in case of an emergency, she had no chance.  Have you seen the Border Patrol shooting tear gas in to the crowds?  Of course not.  Have you seen the thousands of migrants purposely being delayed entry by the Trump Administration and put in large holding areas?  No way.  Have you seen the Border guys dragging children in to those so called “Detention Facilities”, which are actually detention camps like Hitler used on the Jews.

Join with us in boycotting this so called reality show, when it it gets to real, the editors take over, or the cameras are forced to be shut off.  If you watch this show then you agree with Trump border policy of child separation and migrants coming here fleeing death in their country.

What happened to “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation, Inc.

We have to assume the Discovery Channel agrees with the current border policy thats why they put this garbage on the air.  We do support the Border Patrols purpose, as it was before this “Nazi” like policy has been put in place.  We pray every day for the migrants and the children coming to a country that promises them freedom.

We have nothing else except to ask all of you out there to not only boycott this show, but to call your (Mainly GOP) Congressmen and Senators too voice your opposition.  Thanks for all our supporters and we hope the holidays bring many blessings.

New Catch Phrases and other stuff

Since the Pound Sign (#) is now called the “Hashtag” we figured there must be other words that should be replaced because of the “techie” revolution.  The Pound Sign is still call “Pound Sign” by programmers because the symbol is used for masking numeric amounts when programming in BBx and or any other character based languages like Foo-Man Choo, Innie Meenie Miney Moo, Sweet & Sour, Your It, and the world famous and all encompassing Pig Latin.

So here are our picks and we officially copyright them as of December 10, 2018, just in case we see them used without authorization, or blatantly used without any concern to the people who are actually effected.  (Should we use affected here?)

A few years ago our left elbow started hurting like it was sprained and it was starting to impair our movement so we made an appointment and went to the doctor.  After some minor tests the doctor said “You have Tennis Elbow”.  We said, “Doctor we have not played tennis in decades.”   The doctor said “That’s the name for what you are experiencing.”  We said “Then doctor we have a new name for this because we know what caused it.”  We said “It now officially “Tablet Elbow” because this is the arm we hold our table with when we are using it and we are on our tablet for hours per day.”  We are guessing that there are many of you out there in cyber-land that may have gone though this and now you know what it’s called.  The cure is a athletic bandage wrap and Ibuprofen as needed.  It did take several weeks before it went away, and we have not experienced it since.

Are next offering is about this blog.  We have not posted anything for a long time because there is so much going on that we simply could not decide on what to post. A friend said “You might have writers block.”   We thought for a few minutes and said “We are not writers like one would think. We are bloggers so we must have “Bloggers Block”!  Yes, in this day and age where Bloggers are all over the place on the web, this has to be the new name!  In short “BB” would describe it to other bloggers and they would know what we are talking about.  Now if you’re a “writer”, then you can still use the “writers block”, but if you attempt to use “Bloggers Block” then you might be prosecuted for misdirection of a “catch phrase” and it could destroy your reputation.  Of course, if your both, then that will be taken in to consideration by the Blogger Detectives handling your case.  We can feel the stress of millions of Bloggers out there in cyber-land going away because we now have identified this common illness and now they can get on with their lives and stop “milling about” (Archangel Michael used “milling about” in the movie “Michael” when he was describing how it was before he invented “standing in line”).

If you noticed above where we asked “Should we use Affected here?” This is another phrase we want to bring to your attention.  If you have read our blogs over the years you have noticed we are, wait for it, we are “Grammar Challenged”.  We are often corrected by our friends who are professional super spellers or “anal” perfect grammar self appointed authorities mostly with a sun sign of “Gemini” or “Virgo”. These people are usually “writers” who look down on “bloggers” as an inferior form of communication and should be control by some made up Department of Grammar.  Our point is if the reader knows what you are talking about, then we don’t need to take a decade of grammar classes just to use a mere word correctly when in fact we probably use the word once in a lifetime.  (Wonder how many “writers” clicked out of this post here?)  We do believe “Words Matter” but not all and not always.  If it matters then we go to Google and look it up.  In some of our posts we invited the readers to correct us and we have “never” received a spelling or grammar correction.  Our readers are the smartest gramarist (actual word) in the Universe.

Now we bring to your attention another catch phrase that make up back in the 90’s, and have often used to describe the reading of misspelled words. When someone asks how we read something misspelled we say “We read “typoese” and are have been fluent readers for years. We found back in the 90’s that hanging around in Over-Forty chat rooms on AOL the spelling was not very good and the text was moving so fast you not only had to be a fast reader, but you had to quickly figure out what they meant and it was usually nothing of meaning, so we would just move on.  Usually at the end of the paragraph it was clear what they were saying. If you want to know our AOL screen-name email us, we might have met in a room or up in the loft and took a gondola ride. (Hidden meaning)

Because our career was as a software developer we usually worked with the IT Departments of our clients and there was one phase we bust a gut laughing about.  It was when a user would send a “fix ticket” asking where the “any” key was.  It was when a message would display on an application they were using saying “Hit any key to continue.”  We would sit in meeting just laughing out asses off.  Eventually we figured out that the users were sending these on purpose, or at least we hoped they were.  If you were one of the users we apologize for laughing, please forgive us. (Karma adjustment).  Obviously we had nothing better to do.

We have some great stories about IT, but that is for a later post. Especially the story of when all the IT departments of Starchwood Adult Toys in the country were on a conference call with corporate in NY.  There were probably several hundred people on a “live” call.  A small office in AZ where there was one guy on the call that did not realize that anything he said would broadcast throughout all the connections.  Someone in his office evidently stopped by and asked him if he wanted to go for a round of golf?  He then said, wait for it, “I am on a F***ing conference call with corporate and barely staying awake, so I can’t go.”  We heard it and so did everyone else and it happen to be a satellite office of the office where we were.  Everyone at the table looked at each other with eyes raised and mouths open.  People ran out the door laughing loudly.  There was a VP in the room that immediately got up and left.  Rumor has it that the guy in AZ was gone the next day.

We have nothing to report at this time except to thank all of you that read our posts and hopefully we have taught you how to read “typoese”.  Did this advance your career?  If it did, please donate a chunk of change to St. Jude Hospital in Memphis TN.  Thanks to all our readers and we look forward to using lousy grammar to enhance your lives and make you feel good that you are not the only grammar impaired person in the Universe.

Immortal / Immorality – Word Review

The other day we were watching a movie of a WWII battle and when one of the guys stood up and started spraying the field in front of him with bullets the guy next to him grabbed him and pulled him to the ground.  Then he said “What?  Do you think you are immortal?”  Well, there it was “immortal” and it got us thinking because we have seen that word before, but never though much about it until now.  The dictionary has im-mor-tal as “Living forever, never dying or decaying.”  We would hope decaying is not an option because we would not want the zombie look as we go though our many lives.

In past posts we have explained our belief on reincarnation and that is immortality for our souls on a spiritual level, but what about a physical level?

So now we wondered if we knew anyone that is immortal.  So we thought about it and we don’t ever remember anyone of our friends or acquaintances ever telling us they were immortal.  But just because they didn’t tell us doesn’t mean they aren’t, they might be hiding it.  So how can we tell if one of them is and they are nor saying?  So we decided to start dropping hints like when one of them was speeding down the freeway we would say “Do you think if one of the oncoming cars jumped the divider and hit us head-on would be killed instantly?” They always say “yes”.  So we decided to flat out ask “Would you want to live forever?”  Answer always “no”.  Now maybe they are immortal and they don’t know it?

How do you know if you’re immortal or not?  If you are do you get a certified letter from God?  You open the letter and it says “To Sam, this letter is to inform you that your prayers have been heard and we now declare you and immortal human.  Yes Sam, you will live forever the minute you look at the certificate included in this letter.”  “Sam we must warn you that if you are having second thoughts about being immortal it’s too late.  We saw you thinking be careful what you ask for the other day and we suggest you put those thoughts out of your mind because it might have negate the immortal effect.  WARNING:  If you knowingly decide to test if you’re immortal or not, this also might negate the immortality because it’s meant to take effect without you knowing.  If you knowingly decide to test it anyway and you step in front of a speeding bus and after the bus slams on the brakes and you don’t walk away, then you’re dead.  If this happens please call Customer Service at YOU-ARE-DEAD (968-273-3323) when you get to the Pearly Gates.  If you do walk away or crawl away, then even if you’re damaged and might be disabled, you proved your immortal, but we suggest you don’t try again.  We will know Sam, we will know.”

We have some other questions like do you get to choose the age in which you start being immortal?  We have to assume the minute it kicks in you will go though eternity the exact age you are at that moment.  We guess you will know when you are because you will cease aging and look the same day after day forever.  (We hope the letter comes).  We think our fiends would notice that you are not changing physically or that you are out living everyone, then again maybe not.

So let’s say you are immortal and a massive asteroid slams in to the Earth and completely obliterates the planet into a bazillion little pieces of dirt floating around in space.  There you are floating in space with all that dirt forever?   Come on folks, the Earth is eventually going to stop functioning but your not if you’re immortal.  So then what?  Does it mean that every atom down to your DNA heals and stay healed?  If you’re older you might be taking prescription drugs so will you continue taking them forever? We would assume the healing would take place.

We wonder how you would keep it a secret. For example if you are sky diving and when you jump out of the plane your main and safety parachutes fail and you hit the ground like a free falling safe and actually bury yourself a few inched in the sod.  Do you get injuries like everyone else?  If you get up and walk away would kind of give it away that you are “special” and your story would probably go viral and your would probably be on all the headlines of newspapers.  Then what do you say?  This would be a good time to follow the Trump mantra and “Deny everything always.”

We guess we will be pondering this for awhile, but right now we say “no” to immortality until we have way more answers to our questions.

We have nothing else to report at this time except to thank the Universe for sending the rain to Northern and Southern California. Thank you to all who stop by and read our posts.  (We did find out that “Immortal -The Band” dominates the images on Google.)

Macy Thanksgiving Day Parade – The End of Tradition 2018

For many years the Macy’s Day Parade had been our family tradition, where we all gather to watch the parades and enjoy the experience.

The last few years though, we have seen a change.  Who was the genius who decided to start the TV coverage with song routines from Broadway Shows?   This might be of interest to New Yorkers, but to anyone else it total BS.  To the children it’s like going on long trip by car and one of them has to pee, they start asking “When are we going to stop?  I have to go to the bathroom” over and over until we stop. When the Broadway routines start the children start saying “When is this going to be over?  We want to tee the parade!”.  Several adults chimed in too this year.  We all agreed last year if this is part of the TV viewing then this will be the end of a family tradition and we can just as easy take a long car trip.

This year the TV presentation was one LONG commercial; from the second it started to the second it ended.  First we have the Broadway Play commercials for the various plays.  But this year was special.  Yes folks, this year to some we had a controversy.  At the end of the Prom Play two women kissed.  It was not a short kiss, like is passing, it was fairly long and a bit passionate.  We smiled and though great, finally they are bold enough to show what life is really about. But to the billions of conservative families all over the world we could feel the horror of the parents when the children all said “Mommy!  You told us that girls never kiss girls!  Mom!  You lied to us!”  Nothing the parents could say would wipe the image out of the children’s minds and later when guests arrive to enjoy dinner, the children would greet them with “Did you see the two girls kissing?” The parents knew that this would be an ongoing for a very long time.  Todays news has some people pissed off  and others happy that this was included.  (We are happy)

After the Broadway Play commercials and in watching the parade we noticed that every float had some obscure singer on the float promoting their latest song release and lip syncing badly as the song blasted out.  Some of our children even noticed that the words did not match the mouth and we all laughed.  True there were two notables singing. Early in the parade Kelly Clarkson was on a float and Diana Ross later on.  All these years we though Diana was six feet under.  So at least we were informed she was alive and “well”.   Diana at first did not have a microphone in her hand and wasn’t singing even though her song was blasting out.  Then she started lip syncing but her hair was being flipped over her face so we could only see her lips moving.

Of course not only did every singer get in a commercial, but the sponsor of every float got a full minute commercial about their product line.  Then of course the TV station (NBC) had to do their official commercials along with everything else.  We remembered a time when the parade was commercial free and the entire event was aimed at families, but that must have been in a place far, far, away and in s different dimension.  Moving on there were commercial free bands from all over the country.  These were the only participants that were commercial free.  We always look for the balloons of various characters that of course had promotions going on, but we mentally tuned them out and enjoyed seeing the traditional characters and which ones were new.  Finally we saw Santa off in the distance and we knew the torture would soon be over.  When the announcer, said “And here is Santa arriving”, click when the remote and we were done.  By the way, we noticed that the announcers these days we usually people from early morning TV shows.  There was a time when “real stars” from TV did the TV announcing but now, all they do is sit there and read commercial scripts.

We made a point of watching the “live” broadcast, and there was only one in our area on NBC. There were years when there were multiple, but not this year which might indicate that the popularity was waning.  We did notice that later in the day several channels were rerunning the parade and we wondered if the “Girl kiss” was edited out.”

So now our tradition has been whittled down to one parade.  That is the New Years Day Rose Parade that does not have Broadway Play promotions as of last year, and basically commercial free.  It’s okay with us that the float sponsors get talked about, because there is usually a story about each one.  The spectators are another story because the “true blue” ones usually camp overnight on the parade route or near as they can get and they usually get interviewed by roving reporters.  Everyone is welcome at the Rose Parade.

We wish all of our followers had a happy holiday and enjoyed Black Friday Shopping.  We will wait with excitement to see what you will be sending us later in the season (Joke).  We hope you make a point to donate some of that cash that you saved to various charity organizations.  Ours this year is to the forest fire victims that lost everything.

We have nothing else to report at this time except to thank everyone who voted in the USA mid-term election and to those outside of the USA thank you for taking the time to come to the USA and vote (Joke for Donnie).  Have a safe weekend and hope to see you soon.  By the way, we once attended the Pasadena Do Dah Parade and that at that time was held on Thanksgiving.  We rented a Winnebago and parked right on the parade route.  We had a blast.

California Fires – Camp (Northern) & Woosley Fires (Southern)

We are in the San Fransisco Bay area and the air has been wavering between good, moderate, and unhealthy for a week because of the smoke from the Camp Fire.  We can deal with this because folks, there are 200+ people still missing and 44 people dead.  There are people still being evacuated because high winds are pushing these fires all over the place.   Southern California down near San Diego has high winds and high fire warning and we pray no fires start down there.

The town of Paradise was basically wiped out by the Camp Fire.  Stories of people leaving Paradise and stories of heroes are on our local news hourly.  The Weather Channel is now carrying the story full time.  Personally when we see interviews of the people who lost everything its down right heartbreaking.  Yes they survived, but there are many still looking for loved ones and the horror of people leaving Paradise during the fire, driving down traffic clogged roads.  One lady said she was in her car and the taillights of the car in front of her were melting and she was starting to panic when her door opened and a firefighter picked he up and carried her to a firetruck, covered her with a blanket, and said “You are okay now.”.  Folks these guys are amazing and there are thousands from states as far a Georgia that have come to help with the fires.

When this first started and we heard about the town of Paradise we immediately though about our friends that live in Paradise.  I tried to call Marty, no answer.  I then tried to message, him, no answer so I emailed him and prayed that Marty and his family we safe.  About two hours later Marty responded to the email and he said they got out early and were now at his brothers house in Modesto.  (We closed our eyes and thanked God, in fact we gave God a high 5). Marty does not know the state of his house, so he is checking everything possible.  There were some houses that did survive the fire, but only 10%.

Then there is the Woosley Fire in and around Malibu that is still roaring though the hills and actually burned all the was to the ocean which is rare.  When the winds start blowing the flames move so fast that trees actually explode and the dry grass creates a path.

All across the state Californians are coming together and donating goods to help these people.  The Salvation Army is taking in donations.  Below is a link on the Kron4 Radio Station site listing where you can help the Camp Fire people:

Please join us in praying for all the people already involved and the people who are in the path of these fires.

It is being reported that both of these fires may have started by power companies that had equipment issues.  PG&E for the Camp Fire and they had a equipment failure 15 minutes before the Camp Fire started AND in the almost exact location as to where the fire started.  PG&E is investigating (Yeah sure).  The other company for the Woosley Fire is The Edison company, that had a equipment failure.

We thank all the people from near and far that are fighting these fires and we pray that they stay safe as possible.

We have nothing else to report at this time.

Veterans Day 2018

Today specifically and everyday we honor the fine men and women who have served, and are serving this great country at home and abroad.  Our freedom comes from their commitment to keeping this country free and as you know, it is the home of the brave.

***** We have placed a missing persons report for our fake POTUS who seems to be wondering around aimlessly babbling about shin problems.

 

 

This post is also dedicated to Alfred, Mario, Frank, Jim, and Aaron, all members of the AAN Family that have bravely served in the United States Armed Forces protecting our G-R-E-A-T Democracy.

Nothing else to add right now but a HUGE “THANK YOU” for preserving our freedom!
