She Divorced Me Because I Left Dishes by the Sink

Sometimes it takes pain for lessons to stick. Hopefully your pain will help others learn without the drastic conclusion.

Must Be This Tall To Ride

It seems so unreasonable when you put it that way: My wife left me because sometimes I leave dishes by the sink.

It makes her seem ridiculous; and makes me seem like a victim of unfair expectations.

We like to point fingers at other things to explain why something went wrong, like when Biff Tannen crashed George McFly’s car and spilled beer on his clothes, but it was all George’s fault for not telling him the car had a blind spot.

This bad thing happened because of this, that, and the other thing. Not because of anything I did!

Sometimes I leave used drinking glasses by the kitchen sink, just inches away from the dishwasher.

It isn’t a big deal to me now. It wasn’t a big deal to me when I was married. But it WAS a big deal to her.

Every time she’d walk into the kitchen…

Cedar Medicine

Cedar is one of our most versatile trees. From the beautiful wood for woodworking, to its medicinal properties … The many uses in our spiritual workings, you won’t find too many other members of the plant world with so many uses.

Article from Elise @ wildfoodsandmedicines.com – 
Cedar is a powerful antimicrobial.  Reflect on where it lives – cool wet forests where fungi and molds thrive.  When you scratch cedar leaves or cut the wood, strong essential oils are released.  These oils are cedar’s medicine to repel insects, molds, fungi, bacteria and viruses. Our ancestors discovered this long ago and used cedar’s medicine topically and internally to ward off external forces.

I am the heat of your hearth on the cold winter nights, the friendly shade screening you from summer sun, and the dancing bows that capture your imagination. I am the beam that holds your house, the board of your table, and the roof that shelters you from rain.

I am the handle of your shovel, the bark  of your basket, and the hull of your canoe. I am the medicine that heals you, the incense that…

Hammond Ranch – The Rest Of The Story

Before It’s News – It’s About The Gas & Uranium

It’s finally coming to light why the Federal Government is using BLM – The Bureau of Land Management to arrest, imprison and confiscate lands that have been in families since the western expansion.

It’s always about the money. When you follow the money in the Bundy Ranch situation, we found Harry Reid and his son in bed with a Chinese solar company.

If you look at the REAL reason Bureau of Land Management tried to illegally take over Sugar Pine Mine, in southwestern Oregon, you’ll find that BLM has been the enforcers for the Federal Government since the turn of the century.

Kerby Jackson, author and historian, has documented many cases.

Now we find Obama ordering the destruction of a family ranch for the natural gas and uranium. Assets they will sell to the Chinese … The country that really owns the United States along with UNESCO.

Seems the 11 western states have become the testing ground for how far the Federal corporation can push before the citizens of the Republic push back.

 

West Virginia kids in Rose Bowl Parade – WOWK 13 Charleston, Huntington WV News, Weather, Sports

CHARLESTON, WV – 20 West Virginia kids are getting ready for the opportunity of a lifetime- a chance to ride in the Rose Bowl Parade. The float starts a new tradition of partnerships and an opportunity to show-off all West Virginia has to offer.

This Friday among the colorful floats made of roses you’ll see a little piece of West Virginia. A miniature Greenbrier, New River Gorge Bridge and other landmarks will be featured in the “Find Your Adventure” float.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity because the eyes of the world are on the Rose Bowl Parade. Even if you don’t like football, you watch the Rose Bowl Parade,” explained Amy Goodwin Commissioner of Wild Wonderful West Virginia.

The Division of Tourism worked with the WVU Medicine Children’s and Children’s Miracle Network to create the first West Virginia float in the Rose Bowl Parade since 1963. Six WVU Medicine Children’s patients will ride the float now being nicknamed “The WVU Children’s Miracle Float”.

“We might go to Disney land. I’m going to be in the canoe I’m going to like have a helmet too,” Brody Wilmoth told WBOY-TV earlier this year before leaving for the trip. Brody was previously a Miracle Child, acting as an ambassador for other kids in the Children’s Miracle Network. He’s just one child with an amazing story of recovery and now of adventure.

“it’s been a dream of mine to go to California, it’s so exciting. I’ve met and went and met the president, I spent the weekend with Mark Wills, the singer, Miss America, and now I’m getting to do this,” said Samantha Stalnaker. She was also a Miracle Child and will be riding in the float Friday as well.

The former patients voted on names for the two black bears that will be on float. The black bears of course being West Virginia’s state animal. The final decision for names- courage and pride.

“Because that really embodies the patients of that hospital, and the people of west Virginia. Courage and pride – that’s who we are,” Goodwin explained.

The WVU Medicine Children’s group organizing the float is still accepting donations to go towards the cost of building the float. You can check out pictures and updates on the float on their Facebook page. Be sure to watch for the float Friday morning.
