Page-turner grabbing you and holding you tight in its’ pages!


Received “Bulwark” by Brit Linden a Paranormal – Thriller yesterday to read and write an honest review. I started reading it yesterday evening and made it halfway through before falling asleep. By mid-morning, I had finished the book. “Bulwark” by Brit Linden is a real page-turner!

A book about a sheriff of a small town in Georgia, Bulwark. Recently separated from his wife and lose of his young daughter, has much on his mind when on a night of a full moon things went from troublesome to downright strange. An accident victim tells fantastical stories, then unusual sightings of wolves. He even made a visit to an elusive Gingerbread house.

I was a bit confused a couple spots at the beginning but

 

it quickly cleared up and I was drawn back in each time.

Have a read:

Agree to Disagree – We Have Agreed:


My friend and I are of two minds, she is a Vegetarian and I am a Meat Eater from birth. Grew up on a ranch that grass-fed our cattle, had free range chicken etc.  We also grew our own vegetables and fruit as much as possible.  My father was a big believer in faith and life that you used every aspect of a vegetable and animal that you possibly use, then return the rest to the Earth and give thanks to its’ sacrifice, so that your life could continue.

I have moved from the country to the city, so I may not have carried over EVERY teaching and tradition my father taught me but, I still give thanks for each mouthful I take and for each animal AND PLANT that gives their life so that my life may continue.

Yet, I was recently told that no matter how humane a farm/ranch is to take an animal’s life for food and eat animals is abuse. Ok, I understand this person’s point of view, which my best friend holds as well.  However, my question is this; if eating an animal is abuse then what do you call us encroaching onto the animal’s home’s with houses, cars, roads? you are such animal advocates. Perhaps give up your home, give up your car, a study shows 89 million to 340 million birds suffer fatal injuries from vehicle encounters annually, a range that accounts for dead birds taken by scavengers, carcasses missed by researchers and other uncertainties.  Or perhaps you should boycott skyscrapers, up to a billion birds die in collisions with the glass each year in the United States.

Then there is culling animal breeds: Read this article about the pros and cons of the habit and if it is considered ethical.  In Oklahoma, the habit is used frequently to get the population of deer and cougars down cause they can become overpopulated fast! It also keeps the illegal, unethical killing of animals to a limit cause there is a threat of legal action.

<just a wondering, hypothetical thought> I also wonder what a vegetarian would do if they found themselves facing a wild animal or some other animal who meant them harm? or meant to use “THEM” for food. Would they sit back and say killing the animal is abuse? Because, in the country many times killing an animal is just that life or death, to protect yourself, your family, and that of your livestock/pets. Because there are other animals in this world who are not of the mindset “we can only eat vegetables” That is why some of us – Animals and Animals (which is what we humans are) have canine teeth.

So, as long as I am a  human animal and apart of the food chain I am not going to feel guilty about being part of that food chain and eating vegetables OR meat. That is right, if you feel bad for animals then why not vegetables they are leaving entities too. It has been scientifically proven that they feel pain when part of them is cut off.  So, what makes it right to eat one living entity and not the other? Serious question folks.

Until I can have this seriously answered to me I am going to remain eating my meat and vegitables and continue giving thanks to both for giving me the ability to continue living. Continue giving thanks to the Great Being for giving me life and to Mother Earth for giving nutrients to both animals and plants alike.

We will continue to agree to disagree.

The Big “C”


A early morning ramble about The Big “C” the definition in the Oxford dictionary is: informal; Cancer.

You know an illness has grown in our environment when the initial of the illness is listed and defined by itself within the world’s Oxford Dictionary.

When you can’t look crossed eyed and someone you know is being diagnosed with or being effected by the deisase.

I have had The Big “C” entered in and out of my life in one way or another since I was a newborn.

When I was born I had marks on my head that the doctors labeled strawberry birthmark. Thank goodness for Mother’s intuition! She went to several doctors until she found one who would listen to her, saying something was not right. These were not birthmarks, especially the one on my forehead. The doctor agree to test the marks and found that they were indeed hemotimiom tumors. The smaller ones were benign. However, the one on my forehead was miglignet and was grow inward, connected to and feeding off of one of the main arteries of my tiny brain. Surgery was quickly done. This was the first time The Big “C” entered my life.

My maternal-granfather died if cancer brought on by Dibieties and smoking (I was only around 4 or 5), my Aunt died if Lung Cancer when I was in my early 30’s, my Dad died of Tongue cancer when I was in my 30’s, my Mom died if Lung/Brain Cancer when I was in my early 40’s, and my sister died in a car crash following an ambulance to hospital that held her husband who had Cancer, I was in my 40’s.

Now, my ex-wife is fighting this monster for the second time and my brother is fighting it as well.

When will the Big “C” get killed for good? When will we no longer hear on a daily bases how a family member or friend is having a “C” scare or being diagnosed with It? When are we going to digbt the pharmaceutical companies, the Goverment and find what is causing more and more die with this Big “C”. Is this Genocide in the mass but threw a silient chemical war fare? These are the things my Bi-polar brain thinks of everytime I hear if anither family or friend diagnosed!

Love And Hate


You invade my soul,
You prevent me from sleeping,
Leaving me sleep deprived,
Until I crash & burn,
Like a jet fighter shot down,
No ability to escape your hold,
Yet, I hold onto you,
Caressing you and loving you,
With passion like a lover,
Letting you invade me,
Wanting you to invade me,
Missing you when I do not feel you.
Insperation I love you!
