This is my fourth year as a ticket seller at the West Virginia State Fair. The first year I lost my car and learned my lesson. Afterward, I would take a photo of the lot number and nearby landmarks. I post it on fb. I was able to get into the employee parking lot twice in a row this week. I was not so lucky last night.

Yesterday was a brutal day so by the time I got off work, I was exhausted. The shuttle service had already ended and I was NOT looking forward to the hike back to my vehicle.

I notice a State Trooper in a cart asking a senior with a cane if they needed a ride. The gentleman said that he had a few other folks on their way. I approached the State Trooper and asked if he assisted tired old people. He told me to climb on in. " "Yippee!!! I've always wanted to be in the back of a police vehicle, I joked. "Most people don't WANT to be in the back of police vehicles" the State Trooper replied. I didn't tell him that I actually had been in the back police car a few times but that's another story.

Lot D3, I check my FB, Opps, Lot D2 and it's close to the road by the High School. The cop asked me if I had my key popper. I used it a few years ago, He mentioned all the people who lost their cars that day. I know exactly where it's at. In fact, I see Mozart's silver behind right now. He took me to my car and I thanked him. What a lifesaver. A true hero with wings.

Last year when I was taking photos of the lot number and landmarks, "the trooper asked me "What the heck was I doing!" The trooper that I met last night might even suggest it to a few people.

We will no longer allow the common “Wandering Jew” Tradescantia zebrina. This plant is also known as inch plant, spiderwort, and even wandering dude

When I read the announcement in my Plant , my first thought was, "I've got get of these plants." I looked and couldn't find that Tradescantia Zebrina at Wal-Mart or Lowes. So along comes a "God Shot" this morning. I was on my patio checking my Pumpkin and Tomato Plants. I started talking to of my upstairs neighbors and Lo and Behold' there was a potted Tradescantia Zebrina on my neighbor's patio him. "Dang! I am so tempted take a cutting off that plant." My upstairs neighbor advised me, "Go on ahead, he won't care," I need ask him permission first.

We continued conservation and I told him how my Plant doesn't allow us the Tradescantia Zebrina a wandering jew. It could be considered racist or anti-Semitic. His response was, "What a bunch of bull." We got on the topic of the ridiculousness of Political Correctness.

The more we talked, the more I wanted a cutting off that plant. My upstairs neighbor keeps urging me just take a cutting, our downstairs neighbor won't mind. I finally concluded that the plant needed trimming anyway.

Now, I have a new household member. I will him a Wandering Dude just keep my plant happy but I am naming him J.W. after my Jewish Grandfather, Jack Winterstein

A CNN REPORTER WALKS INTO A NEIGHBORHOOD TAVERN AND IS ABOUT TO ORDER A DRINK WHEN HE SEES A GUY THE END OF THE BAR WEARING A "MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN" HAT.
IT DIDN'T TAKE AN EINSTEIN TO KNOW THE GUY WAS A DONALD TRUMP SUPPORTER.
THE CNN GUY SHOUTS OVER TO THE BARTENDER, LOUDLY ENOUGH THAT EVERYONE IN THE BAR COULD HEAR, "DRINKS FOR EVERYONE IN HERE, BARTENDER, ....EXCEPT FOR THAT TRUMP SUPPORTER."
AFTER THE DRINKS WERE HANDED OUT THE TRUMP GUY GIVES THE CNN GUY A BIG SMILE, WAVES AT HIM AND SAYS, IN AN EQUALLY LOUD VOICE, "THANK YOU!"
THIS INFURIATES THE CNN REPORTER. SO HE ONCE AGAIN LOUDLY ORDERS DRINKS FOR EVERYONE EXCEPT THE GUY WEARING THE TRUMP HAT. AS BEFORE, THIS DOESN'T SEEM TO BOTHER THE TRUMP GUY. HE JUST CONTINUES TO SMILE AND AGAIN YELLS, "THANK YOU!"
SO THE CNN GUY AGAIN LOUDLY ORDERS DRINKS FOR EVERYONE EXCEPT THE TRUMP GUY. AND AGAIN THE TRUMP GUY JUST SMILES AND YELLS BACK, "THANK YOU!"
AT THAT POINT THE AGGRAVATED CNN REPORTER ASKS THE BARTENDER, "WHAT THE HELL IS THE MATTER WITH THAT TRUMP SUPPORTER? ...
I'VE ORDERED THREE ROUNDS OF DRINKS FOR EVERYONE IN THE BAR BUT HIM AND ALL THE SILLY ASS DOES IS SMILE AND THANK ME. IS HE NUTS?"
"NOPE, " REPLIES THE BARTENDER...
"HE OWNS THE PLACE." ! 🤣😂🤣

“Whether or not you believe in God, you must believe this: when we as a species abandon our trust in a power greater than us, we abandon our sense of accountability. Faiths… all faiths… are admonitions that there is something we cannot understand, something which we are accountable. With faith, we are accountable each other, ourselves, and a higher truth. Religion is flawed, but because man is flawed. The church consists of a brotherhood of imperfect, simple souls wanting be a voice of compassion in a world spinning of control.”

Earlier this year, I was admiring the biggest Jade Plant I've ever seen. My Quaker girlfriend said it was the from a cutting of a cutting from the biggest jade plant she ever saw. She was telling me they thrive on negligent, they like lots of sunshine, very little water and they like being rootbound. They don't like cold weather. I learned the hard way with previous jade growing adventures.

I asked her for a cutting and she gave me one already potted. I named the Jade Plant Otis. I have already had to transfer Otis to a different pot twice and did some pruning so Otis will be bushy instead of tall and straggling.


Now it's time to turn the cuttings into plants and SHARE!!!!!

Good Luck. Jade plants are primarily green, the color of growth, renewal, and spring. Jades bring good luck in the form of wealth, and having them in the home is said to boost mental acuity with the increase in oxygen they release into the home.


I noticed this morning my pumpkin patch has it's first flower. Soon Flower will turn into the Great Pumpkin!!!! Charlie Brown will be delighted.

Earlier this week, I drove to the Fairgrounds about a job. I tickets at the WV State Fair every year. It's like a reunion because I meet the same co-workers year after year along with a few new ones. I was delighted to discover that our work shirts will be red this year. That's a God Shot!!!! I can declare my political sentiments without being overtly political.

Earlier that day, I stopped at Burger King to pick up a dollar taco along with a Coke Zero. I told the cashier at the window that I would pick up the tab for the man in the big hoggy truck behind me. It brought back childhood memories when I decided to keep believing in Santa Claus because I like getting presents. Now that I am older, the joy is being Santa Claus and giving presents..

I stopped at Wal-Mart on the way home. I ran into Mr. Dufus who followed me all over the store with lascivious suggestions. I suspect that if I ever took him up on the suggestions, he would run like the wind. He kept throwing stuff in his cart and I figured, what the heck, more for Wal-Mart.

I finally decided to dodge him by heading to the Gardening section. Mr. Dufus must have decided that he didn't want any potting soil. I discovered the plant rescue section with several marvelous finds at basement bargain prices. Woo Hoo!!!!

I made it home to the music from the wind chimes, specks of light of the fairy mirrors and that ever-growing pumpkin patch. Charlie Brown is going to really happy come October.

Yes... make judgment of where "bad" people live..
Make the judgment of where "bad "people have control..
Yes make judgment of where "bad " people can't "Live Right" and "Intelligent Life" no longer exists..... (Sparkle, they all think the same!)


People who live in blighted communities can make decisions to improve their lives. I've seen the clergy from different churches get together to create mentoring programs to young people find a positive direction with a focus on education versus gangs, drugs and multiple unwed pregnancies. I've seen churches get together to renovate buildings, clean up the trash and replace them with community gardens.
.


But YOU are the worst kind of American... Who doesn't want to change the flag.. but hide behind it.. to label blacks and browns, and liberals as "bad people.. deserving of what they get.

Supporting. a white Nationalist ....Thinking it's about them and NOT about you.. American Christianity is intolerably bias..With white robes and hoods.. to hide behind.. a sect unto itself?

Nationalist is Love of Country while Globalist is Love of the World. Most Christians I know wear Choir Robes of various colors. Have you ever heard a Black Choir? is an experience. They add the soul to gospel music.

There were "good people" among those in Charlottesville.. Did you see them.. Did you hear them? Do you need an explanation as to what good people are?. "Good People" can recognize...

I lived in Charlottesville for a time. There are good people in Charlottesville. It was the outsiders (on both sides) who came to the town to make trouble. There are some who want to tear down all the confederate memorials and burn Monticello which openly acknowledges it's history with the enslaved community. The Sons of the Confederacy want to reserve history, honor their ancestors and acknowledge the dark side of history. Covering it up and pretending like it never existed is not the answer.



"Shithole people"..."Shithole" countries.. "shithole" cities..
and to Judge....is to be judged.... as having ..."shit for brains". Yes, the overloaded brain of having absorbed too much "pigeon poop".


WHATEVER!!!!

It is possible for blighted cities and even blighted countries to turn themselves around and become vibrant communities but when the taxpayer dollars are given for purpose get misappropriated, is a problem.

You are a of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him

When I first became a 12 Stepper, I was told to seek "God as you understand him." I've explored several different religions and attended different churches. Early in my sobriety, I decided I wanted a religion and read in a college textbook that Episcopalians were the most educated. I've always had a tendency to read the stars and cards. It is a way of tapping into God-given Intuition.

When my marriage went south and I was left with two sons, I needed a village and found that village around the corner at the Avenue Church in Ventura, California. I still have problems believing that everyone in the world needs Jesus as a "stay out of hell" card. Still, that village kept my boys from jumping into the hell that some of the folks in the blighted neighborhood got stuck in.

I met Grumpy who eventually became my second husband. My boys and I relocated to Ojai. I started attending the local Unitarian/Universalist Fellowship. I started teaching Sunday School and took the on field trips to Meditation Mountain and the Nordolff Graveyard. I started exploring Pagan religions and going to Native American Sweat lodges

We relocated to West Virginia. A Church on every corner. The local Quaker group made my activist heart go pitter patter so that is where I am now..

So we have HERSELF ranting "The church is full of hypocrites, sitting inside the 4 walls of a building and reciting a creed doesn't make you right-living ......what it does is pump you full of self-righteousness, Yada Yada Snore."

This has not been my experience with churches. Where would we be without churches during natural disasters? The Mennonites rebuilt White Sulpher Springs while the Pentecostals cleared the debris. How many churches operated food pantries and other services for low-income folks. Have you ever heard about Operation Blessings which helps with emergency utility bills? I volunteered with a group of churches in Ojai Valley which provided Winter Shelter for the homeless.

What the Quakers do incredible. I have never been a benchwarmer no matter what Church I have attended. That would never be an option as a Quake

Washington D.C. and Baltimore

I frequently climb on the train and head to Washington D.C. The first time I traveled to D.C., I discovered an aspect to humanity that I had not seen since leaving California. I quickly learned not to carry cash because the panhandlers would get it. I traveled to D.C. for a lobbying event with a group of women. We slept on the floor of a church. One woman commented on "We're homeless." I replied, "Naw, the homeless guy is the one sleeping on the church steps."

Why do people have to live like that? I was a food stamp caseload worker for the homeless in California. It was my observation that most chronically homeless people are homeless because of issues with alcohol, substance abuse, and/or mental illness. Frequently, they don't change unless they have a reason or desire to change.

The public has more issues with the squalid littering than the homeless. The solution is to keep young people from starting on this path in the first place. I've had opportunities to work with the William Penn House which builds community gardens and supports the Southeast White House located in the Randle Highlands neighborhood of Southeast Washington, D.C. The outreach center provides mentoring to young people and serves as a resource center and ministry to & families.

A few years ago, I was in Washington D.C. and decided to take the train to Baltimore. My mission was to head to the Basilica with the mortal remains of Cardinal Gibbons, my late husband's famous cousin and to light a candle for Grumpy.

I would have liked to explore the catacombs that lead to the tomb of Edgar Alan Poe and perhaps savor some Java at Fell's Harbor but I was told that it was too dangerous. The police said that criminals would gather together like wolf packs and target tourist. Trump wasn't kidding when he called it a rat-infested hell where nobody wanted to live. There is an abundance of empty dilapidated buildings surround and filled with trash. Vigrants live there because they are stuck there.

Leave it a Democrats blame Baltimore's problems with poverty and crime on the white Republican points it . Barrack Obama and Bernie Sanders said the thing about Baltimore but that is not considered racist according the Democrats.

Rep, Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when his Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous. His district is considered the Worst in the USA......

Maxine Waters doesn’t even live in her district?
Maxine represents District 43 which includes the crime/ gang area of South Central LA – a region of Los Angeles so bad even Maxine won’t live there.

It seems like these Democrat lawmakers care nothing about the constituents that they represent. They care about using them for their own political ambitions. They are screeching about the condition of the illegals in the detainment camps. perhaps because they know that they are the undocumented democrat voters keep them in power. The MS Gangsters and drug dealers will move into their districts and become the undocumented voters that keep them in office.
