Quoting starwomyn:

We ALL have our cutting, catty moments but some of us manage to recognize our imperfections and move forward. When wrong promptly admit it, take the lesson, do better next time. There are some folks to want to stick to their miserable selves along with the bad behavior. That is their business. Personally I will save my "catty" remarks for POTUS not FLOTUS better yet talk to the members of the Legislations Branch of the Government.

CarolinaPanthera QUOTES
]Yes we ALL do have our cutting, catty moments, but some of us manage to recognize that jabbing, then apologizing while on our way to the next blog to jab again, is as hypocritical as your BS comments. Here's a nice sunflower for your garden.

STARWOMYN RESPONDS: I know that this was deleted but I found it in the "where I am quoted" listing. It may or may not merit a response but is getting one nonetheless. The Beauty of El Toro Doo Doo is that it can be used to grow magnificent sunflowers. Sunflowers feed the birds but they can also be used to clean up radioactive waste. El Toro Doo Doo also works well for Dandelions. There are some that consider Dandelions a weed but it's really a magnificent plant. It provides the first nectar for bees which makes honey so the bees have the strength to pollinate and give life to the entire earth. Dandelion roots also make a fabulous tea that has more nutritional value than coffee. It also makes a good wine for those who are not alcoholic.

C'est la vie.

B*ne Broth Making Adventures

I have always been more of a production cook versus a gourmet Kitchen Goddess. When I was a working MUM, the crockpot was my best friend. I wish I had the Instant Pressure Cooker Pot when I was raising my boys.

Earlier this month, I was hospitalize because Xarelto (blood thinner) and Diverticulitis don't work well together. I went to the Emergency Room with a Hemoglobin Count of 4 which resulted in three days of ICU Hades. The first night was spent prepping for a Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EDG)/Colonoscopy while getting a blood transfusion and hooked to a EKG Monitor.

I prefer to ask a doctor what lifestyle change can I make versus what pill do I have to take to fix it. One of the ladies from my Quaker Meeting is drinking two cups of b*ne broth a day for digestive problems.

I decided to give it a try and purchased some at Wal-Mart. I have been advised that the more expensive brands are better. Hmmm................. I started getting results within two days with the less expensive brand. It is possible that somebody is trying to make more money off of it. I decided to start making it myself.

I started out making it in the crockpot which is a 32 Hour process. Stove top cooking is out of the question. My smoke alarm is VERY sensitive. Next I purchased an Instant Pressure Cooker from Am*zon, What a difference, I can make a batch in three hours. There are other things that can cook a whole lot faster. Eight minutes for Dinner last night.

Hasta La Vista Stove!!!!!

I have been a liberal democrat most of my life. I can have issues with the President's agenda but I have never felt the need to vilify or hiss at the First Lady no matter who she is married to.

Most First Ladies have a hopefully noncontroversial "cause" to work on while their husbands are President. Still, there are those who will make it controversial simple because of who the women are married to.

Michelle Obama followed the footsteps of one of her aunts who created Victory Gardens during WWII and encouraged Community Gardens in the Schools. Suddenly her husband's opponents were screaming "child abuse."

It is probably an oxymoron that Melania Trump chose Anti-Cyberbullying as her noncontroversial cause but at least her husband isn't tweeting insults to little kids.

So now there is this unfair comparison between Barbara Bush and Melania Trump. They are two very different women from very different circumstances and worlds.

Barbara Bush was born into privilege and walked right into a marriage of privilege.
She was a "Stay at Home" wife and mother who most likely utilized paid housekeepers and nannies. The advantage of having advantages is that she had the time and resources to devote for worthy causes.

Melania was the daughter of a car dealer and pattern maker for children's clothing. She actually started modeling at the factory where her mother created patterns. Although not impoverished, she certainly did not have the Privileged life that Barbara Bush led. She modeled, worked her way to the United States, became a citizen and married into privilege.

It does not matter if Melania took off her clothes as part of her job and Barbara kept her clothes on for a Charitable cause. It is not important that one woman colors her hair and enhanced her boobs while the other woman did not. It doesn't matter why either woman married their husbands. They both ended up as First Ladies.

Different does not mean the one is better than the other. Different is just different.
Just my not so humble prospective.

Greenies Versus Wal-Mart

Sunday, women from my Quaker Meeting and I met to carpool to Monroe County for A MEETING because of our members in that county has trouble travelling. Advanced aging issues. I noticed that of the women also of an advance age started her morning with b0ne broth.

After we returned back to Greenbrier County, I drove to Wal-Mart and purchased cartons of b0ne broth. What a difference. After days, arthritic, digestive, chest, shoulder, hip pains are g. So yesterday, I took another trip to Wal-Mart and purchased more along with a rotisserie chicken so that I can make it myself.

I shared this in a group and the response of a few was interesting. What are the
ingredients. Is it REAL B*ne Broth? The cost is $1,72 a carton which lasts 2 days. There is no guarantee that the rotisserie chicken is organic. The more expensive brand which is close to $8,00 a carton is a better option.

Dah! This is West Virginia. We don't have the option of beebopping over to the local Trader Joe's Grocers to pick up Yuppie B0NE Broth or search for orgANIc b0NE broth. If the less expensive remedy from Wal-Mart works, that is what I am sticking to. I am walking around pain free for the first time in a long time. Life on life's terms.

I just came across a mean-spirited blog ridiculing a woman because of her occupation and where she works just because of an disagreement with her politics.

Ironically, in 2006, I went to Texas looking for love and found WAL-MART instead. I loved working in the bakery and diovered that baking bread can be a spiritual experience. I learned the value of When you walk through the fire, you shall not be ... you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame orch you Isaiah 43:2 quoted by my Great-Granny to stop a burn. It worked it's magic when my hand touched the hot oven. I have worked at Wal-Marts in Texas, Nevada, Virginia and West Virginia.

All jobs have their positive and negatives. That is life on life's terms. Nevertheless, I worked with a diverse team of people with different religions, politics and ethnic groups. There was NEVER a need to ridicule them for who they are, what they do, what they believe or where they came from. I actually found it interesting.

It has been my experience that when individuals find a need to ridicule some else, it is for the purpose of maintaining what they perceive as a superior status. It's all an illusion. The Shame is misplaced.

We are all Children of the Universe with a right to be.

Ezekiel 16:6. Thank You MrsJoe

Mrs. Joe is one of my Spiritual Advisors and has frequently helped me through difficult times. I kept asking myself if I should call for an ambulance but I made an early medical appointment instead.

I spent the past few weeks feeling like Hades and totally expecting to join the ancestors. Sunday, I went to our Quaker Meeting and monthly Pot Luck. I decided that I was not going to wait another week for the medical appointment so I drove myself to the Emergency Room instead thinking it was heart issues.

The heart was fine but the Hemoglobin count was 4 which is very very bad. I spent that night in ICU hooked up for blood transfusions and prepping for a Esophag0gastroduoenoscopy/colonoscopy. This involved drinking unholy water and frequent trips to the porto-potty. This is a major league challenge when hooked up to IV's and EKG electros'. I sent messages to my sons in case things went south during the procedures.

Mrs. Joe took time out of her weekend to give me EZEKIEL 16:6. I googled it and found out that it is scripture to STOP bleeding. The results of the Esophag0gastroduoenoscopy/colonoscopy. - so far so good. No continued bleeding but the Doc and I are going to have a serious talk about allopathic medications next week.

My original plan was to head for the SpiritWorld - grab Grumpy and together haunt the local Wal-Mart. My son convinced me that was a bad idea. He suggested that I haunt Monticello and the Library of Congress instead. Afterwards I could head to the Senate buildings and haunt all the GOP offices too.

The Joy of Protests!!!

]Where did HS Kids get money to fly to DC, plus hotels and food to march? Some were given voter registrations too. Something fishy!

The Douglas High School Students flew to DC on the New England Patriots plane but the rest of the kids likely travelled to DC on Rally Buses. They spent long hours on the bus - stopped at McDonald's for breaks. The buses parked at the RFK Stadium Parking lot and they headed home immediately after the protest.

The price for hotels and even hostels are really jacked up during major protests and events in D.C. It is possible to spend the night on Church Floors.

There was a rumor that protestors at the Women's March were paid. I wish that were true. I could use the money.

My girlfriend and I went to the People's March on Climate Change. She drove us to Alexandria where we spent the night at the home of one of my friends and took the Metro into DC - the next day. Ironically, my son's in-laws were texting me on the other side of DC. They were at the William Penn House which was a reprise center. They took a Rally Bus from Kansas. It was a much longer ride than the one that I took that January from West Virginia.

Infidels and Mockingbirds in the SNOW!!!!

“To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible.”
― St. Thomas Aquinas

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be Desiderada

Step Three - Made a decision to turn our will and lives over to the care of God as we understood him

So last week, I got off the train from Florida only to be greeted by West Virginia snow.

I asked a simply question - Does God choose sides over football teams or political parties? The Infidels and Mockingbirds started chirping and gasLIGHTING away, "There is no God but Elvis is ALIVE!!!!"

I can only share my experiences and prospective. I suspect that if the Infidels put enough energy into Elvis, he could become a deity. They can create their own deity and call it Roxyboobs. They can simply declare themselves a power greater than all. Reasonable minds also indulge in fantasies.

Two years ago, we had a devastating flood in our community. It was the Church Doors that opened for folks who lost their homes. It was the Church Folks who came with Food, Water, Building Supplies, Labor, Ad Infinitum. I didn't see a single member from the Richard Dawkins Fan Club show up to help. God is more than just a definition or belief. God is action working through others.

So keep singing those mockingbird songs. The messages will get lost in the snowstorm.

Does God REALLY Choose Football Teams (or Political Parties)
Posted:Mar 11, 2018 12:34 pm
Last Updated:Apr 25, 2018 10:25 pm
If Folks pray for a football team to win does it mean that God loves the other team less. Sometimes there are valuable lessons to be found in losing. It can be a chance to evaluate shortcomings, fix them and do better next time Perhaps, it is just a game and one team practiced more, did everything they were suppose to do and didn't party before the game. Faith without works is dead.

What about political parties. Is it really a contest of evil against good? Conservatives/Liberals - what great sin do you plan to commit today? Today, I debated on rather to stay in bed or get up and go to Church. I went to church and the building didn't fall down. I have no plans to rob any banks, beat up any conservatives or write any poison pen blogs.

There is much ado about Trump's ill gotten sensual gratification with a Porn Star. I hope the Democrats are not dumb enough to spend billions of tax dollars to investigate it just because the GOP did the same with Clinton's unsavory oral pleasure in the Oval Office. A person would have to be in fantasyland to conclude that either man is a patron of virtue. Personally, I would rather read about Michelle Obama's community gardening project. It is far more interesting.

So what great sins are the conservatives planning on entertaining this week. Will they buy AK-47's on their way to the Opera along with the "God Hates Bare Naked Ladies" signs that they plan on carrying.

It is my not so humble opinion that worldly values suck swamp water no matter what political label they come from, It is my goal to rise above it - one day at a time.

A Candle for Annie (12st Step Spiritual Advisor)

The past few years, so many of my near and dear loved ones have crossed over to the other side. It is all part of the journey. We really don't know what is one the other side until we get there.

I met Anne over 40 years ago when I walked into a 12 Step Group as the youngest member of the group. I relapsed a few times but eventually - I found myself pregnant with my son and on shaky grounds. I knew that it would be totally selfish to relapses into active alcoholism when I was confronted with the responsibility of a child. It was time to get serious about recovery.

Anne and I connected. She became my sponsor and other women started coming to her. She was the best of the best. Last month, I tried calling her. No answer. I knew that she had been unwell. I contacted her son who advised me that he set her up with assisted care. I was not surprised when one of my 12 Step "Sisters" contacted me to tell me that Anne passed last month.

Anne has graduated and earned her angel wings. All I can do is utilize and pass on the lessons that she taught me.

What better way to honor my Catholic Spiritual Advisor than to travel to St. Augustine, Florida and light a candle for her at the First Catholic Parish established in the 1500's. I also lit a candle for my grouchy Catholic mother-in-law and a few others just because I can.
