Waving around a sweeping sombrero and a hearty laugh, it’s the end.

Dayton-Ohio – 1903 by Randy Newman
Let’s sing a song of long ago ~ when things were green and movin’ slow
and people would stop and say hello
or they would say Hi to you
“Would you like to come over for tea
with the Missus and me ?”
It’s a real nice way to spend a day
In Dayton, Ohio –
On a lazy Sunday afternoon in 1903

Let’s sing a song of long ago
When things could grow
and days flowed quietly

The air war clean and you could see
and folks were nice to you
“Would you like to come over for tea with the Missus and me ?”
It’s a real nice way to spend a day In Dayton, Ohio
On a lazy Sunday afternoon in Nineteen Hundred and Three.
“The principles of driving a car is based solidly on the same principles of gambling in a casino: The more you see, the safer you are.

Smoke Rings – Song Lyrics by Ned Washington
(edited by G. Julian Walker)

Where do they go – those smoke rings I blow – each night
What do they end – those smoke rings I send – on high ?
Where are they hurled, when they’ve kissed the world good-bye ?
Oh, I need in my life – to laugh at the strife down below
I’d be like a king, if I could follow each ring I blow

Puff ~ Puff ~ Puff ~ Puff your cares away

Puff ~ Puff ~ Puff ~ both night and day

Blow ~ Blow ~ blow them into the air, those silky things

Blow ~ Blow ~ blow them everywhere, give your trouble wings

What do they tell and what is the spell they cast
Some of them fall and seem to recall the past
But most of them rise – away to the skies of blue
Oh little smoke rings, I’d love for you
to take me away with you ! 1933

The Preface to Doc Brown’s Cakewalk on the sheet music – 1899
There is probably no city or town in any county that doesn’t contain a peculiar character – one who is singled out on account of doing certain things that no one else would think of doing, or using strange language that seems senseless, but nevertheless has a meaning which is readily understood, when the listener can see the speaker, who appears in outrageous costumes or other eccentric characteristics – which make him a special object of curiosity and gossip. Now of all such characters that may exist, there is probably no one that can compare with the subject of this sketch for original mirth making (or earth shaking) like Old Doc Brown. Mr. Brown is very well known in Kansas City and vicinity for the many comical and unusual things he does, but as a Cake Walker he really shines. Old Doc Brown has been awarded the Champion Cake Walker of the County (Now if that don’t take the cake, then I’ll have a slice for myself).

(Journeys to the Edge of Creation) ~ A Christian Video
The great book called the universe stands continually open to our gaze at night, but it cannot be understood, unless one understands the language in which it was written. Galileo Throughout the centuries, we have turned our eyes to the Heavens, in an effort to fathom their complexity, meaning and design. It is a timeless quest for discovery, unfolding right before our eyes. Danny R. Faulkner
“Less than a century ago, it was commonly believed, that the Milky Way was -of itself- all that there is or was; and that there was nothing else beyond its boundaries. Then in 1924, high above Los Angeles, at the Mount Wilson Observatory, Edwin Hubble, conclusively determined, that the dust and hazy nebula in Space – long thought to be in our own Milky Way, were in reality individual galaxies ! These galaxies, he boldly proclaimed, were as large or larger than our own galaxy. For the first time in history, a correct conceptual view of the universe was in sight.” Danny R. Faulkner ~Astronomer

Abbot & Costella Meet Frankenstein

“The reason why the bride of Dracula loves Bud Abbot is because he is so round, so plump and -of course – so fully packed.”
Abbot & Costella Meet Frankenstein

“Some people have secretly come to the conclusion that money is a worthy lover and they give their all to it. It isn’t that money is evil, but making it an idol, drives us crazy. Therefore, the primary task and belief is to educate the imagination to a point, where it can conceive of the infinite. Then and there, you can transcend mundane matters that are limited and temporary: Alcoholism, greed, obsessions, drugs and the hollowness of life without God. It is then, that we are in need of spiritual guidance. But we dare not entrust it to a church, for they are easily corrupted. Belief in spirituality is a subtle and mysterious thing and we cannot always count on ministers, priests, pastors or rabbis to get it right. Even a professional religious counselor can confuse faith with allegiance to a certain church or organization.” Thomas Moore

“The American Republic will endure, until the day Congress discovers, that it can bribe the Public with the Public’s Money.” Alexis de Tocqueville

“All a man can do is live an honorable life. Be kind to humans and animal alike. Thus we treat people like we, ourselves would like to be treated. This is the teachings of my teacher: Jesus Christ.” Robert Shaw in Swashbuckler
Song Lyrics from Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm
Come and Get Your Happiness
There’s a million worth of gold in Sun-shine, that everyone can possess –
with all the trapping of success: come and get your happiness
There’s a billion worth of sales in moonbeams, enough for everyone I guess
What’s a million more or less: come and get your happiness

Among the world without your happy childhood
when you were Jill and Jack
In raggy britches, there’s a lot of ritches
All of which you pay no income tax

So get under that blue heaven
away from troubled land and distress
Just find Mother Nature’s Address
And Come and Get your Happiness ~ 1938

Alone With You
I’ve always known that three’s a crowd
Only two may dance, only two romance
So when I see you in a crowd ~ I’m not satisfied
‘Till I reach your side:

Alone with you, I don’t know the meaning of Time
Alone with you, I’m yours without reason or rhyme
I’d be content to be sent, to an island in the sea
If I had you with me, how lucky I would be

Alone with you, I have everything that I need
I always knew I’d follow, wherever you lead
So ring the bell in the steeple and tell all the people
That we are one and I’ve begun ~ to live in a Heaven ~ Alone With You ~ 1938

What The Bhagavad-gita is about
Ladies and Gentlemen, of all the Vedic Scriptures, The Bhagavad-gita (The Song of God) from India is a hallmark in spirituality. That is because God, Himself is talking to all humanity, not just His Devotees. He explains in The Bhagavad-gita how best to live and how best to die, in a very practical way. He describes the Soul and claims it as His Superior Energy. He contradicts all ignorant people who say that we have no control over our destination to the next life. Krishna, The Supreme Personality of Godhead ~ as He calls Himself ~ states categorically, that yogis do have control over their destination to the next life. He goes on to say, that of all yogis, he who practices Bhakti-yoga is the most successful. That is because Bhakti-yoga is the yoga of love and He is a loving God. Yajnapati Dasa

and do not heed, there is a word for what you are, and my friend, the word is “fool ! 1955

Pink Elephants ~ Song Lyrics by Harry Woods
Yesterday a traveling salesman came into my house
He was just as shaky and as nervous as a mouse
He said: “I was at a party and we broke up at four:
When I woke up this morning, this is what I saw:
Pink elephants on the table, Pink elephants on the chair
Pink elephants on the ceiling, Pink elephants everywhere
I hid my head right in the bed and said a prayer.

When I woke up again, what do you think was there-
Pink elephants on the ceiling, Pink elephants on the wall
A lavender alligator was running around the hall.
Now I’m through making whoopee, I raised my hand and swore
That I never intend, to ever again, see elephants anymore.

Pink elephants on the window, Pink elephants on the sill
One elephant on the sideboard was kissing a whippoorwill.
I saw a monkey dancing with a purple cow ~ just then
The cuckoo came out of the clock and said “me-ow”
Pink elephants on my trousers, Pink elephants on my coat
A polka-dot boa constrictor was shaving a billy-goat !
A lamby laid beside me and started in to snore
Oh, I never intend, to ever again, see elephants anymore. 1932

Wild Thing
Did you ever get fascinated by a wild animal and try to take it home and keep it ? What happens then ? I’ll tell you what happens, it usually gets sick and dies, because it’s against its nature to be tamed. It’s the same with an Indian; you try to take it home and teach it to be a white person, but it just won’t work, because it’s against its nature to be tamed. Clint Walker in Yellowstone Kelly

Love, A Sacred Gift
Love cannot be taken illegally or forced; even an Indian Squaw knows that love must be given as a sacred gift. Yellowstone Kelly

“The father of tap dancing as we know it today was Thomas Dartmouth Rice, called “Daddy” Rice. Other forms of dance – modern ballroom, with its origins in the aristocratic pavane and passacalia of Renaissance Europe, as well as the square dance, with its origins in Britain – were imports. But tap dancing came from American soil and is indigenous as poison ivy and as popular as the ice cream soda.” Bill Adler
“During the second half of the Nineteenth Century, most of the minstrel dances had adapted the heel-and-toe-technique of the clog dance and superimposed it on the levee dance. ‘Levee dancing’ became the ‘step dance’ then and finally the ‘buck and wing’ which young Fred Astaire had learned to dance in his first years of training. Eventually, the ‘soft shoe’ was applied to this mobile, eccentric ‘step dance’ in 4/4 time. (The ‘Old Soft Shoe’ of the thirties required sand to be sprinkled on the stage). It was accompanied by a kind of genteel humor in the performance, a certain delicacy and a lightness of touch. Usually danced to a smooth but leisurely cadence that sounded almost like a snare drum solo.”
Bill Adler, from his best-selling book Fred Astaire, a biography

This is the behavior of my patients: First, they beg me to help them. They say: ‘Save me doctor !’ Then there’s an operation and they are uncertain and confused. After four days, they laugh and tell me that they are indestructible ! I tell them no, to rest and convalesce; but they defy me and revert back to reckless behavior. Just before they die, they look up at me and say : ‘Save me doctor !’ (It is then, that I calmly reply: ‘I am a doctor, not a priest !’) Cary Grant in Crisis

And a Yam ~ today

Will be a yam today

Come on and yam to-day.

It will hit the spot !
Get yours while its sweet and hot !!

Then with one hand, hold a tray
Then you’re on your way (to)

And let’s have a yam fest with passion

I didn’t come to do Big Apple
I didn’t come to do The Shag ~

Because the Yam, is in the bag ! Yea ~
Two Different Worlds ~ Song Lyrics from 1956
Two Different Worlds – We live in Two Different Worlds
For we’ve been told that a love like ours could never be.
So far apart, they say we’re, so far apart – and that
We haven’t the right to change our destiny.
When will they learn, that a heart doesn’t draw a line.
Nothing matters, if I am yours and you are mine.
Two Different Worlds – We live in Two Different Worlds
But we will show them , as walk together in the sun ~ that
Two Different Worlds, are really only One. Sid Wayne

Reflections On Two Different Worlds ~ Heads or Tails
There is a shroud of mystery, superimposed upon us in this mundane world; and it is just like the night from the day. On one hand (in the light) there is something we are proud of and want the whole world to know. On the other hand (in the dark) there is something that we are ashamed of and want nobody to know. G. Julian Walker

You Gotta Have Hope
“The most wonderful thing about England right now is Bob Hope. The boys in camp stand in the rain, they crowd into halls so close you can’t breathe, just to see him. He is tireless and funny, and full of responsibility, too, although he carries it lightly and gaily. There isn’t a hospital ward that he hasn’t dropped into and given a show; there isn’t a small unit anywhere that isn’t either talking about his jokes or anticipating them. What a gift laughter is ! Hope proves it.” Burgess Meredith ~ Director of the USO in 1943

The Problems in Vietnam
We are now going to hear from our friends in Military Intelligence (that’s a contradiction in terms). Can you tell us what you’ve found out about the enemy ? “Yes, we have found that we can’t find the enemy ! They’re out there, but we’re having a problem finding them.” What are you doing to fix that then ? “Well, we ask them : Are you the enemy ? And if they say yes; we shoot them !” In the newspaper they call the enemy Charlie, but we don’t find anyone here by that name. They have names like Lu-Yi and din-how (How’s that ?)

President John F. Kennedy’s Famous Space Age Speech
For the eyes of the world now look into Space, to the moon and to the planets beyond; and we have vowed that we shall not see it governed by a hostile flag of conquest (like the Spanish Conquistadores in Peru) but by the banner of freedom and peace. We have vowed that we shall not see Space filled with weapons of mass destruction, but with instruments of knowledge and understanding. May 25th1961

President John F. Kennedy’s Famous Secret Society Speech
The very word ‘secrecy’ is repugnant in a free and open society, and we are as a people, inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, secret oaths, and secret proceedings. We decided long ago, that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts – far outweigh the dangers which are cited to justify it. April 1961

Who Murdered President Kennedy and Why ?
There are many theories about who killed President Kennedy and why. Richard C. Hoagland in his book Dark Mission presents his theory that Vice President Lindon Johnson with the help of Congressman Albert Thomas are suspects. During President
Kennedy’s famous Space Age Speech, he presented the plan to explore Space with the help of the Communist Russian Regime. Vice President Lindon Johnson was seen at that time with a look of hatred in his eyes. You can see this yourself in the famous photo
of The joint Session of Congress, May 25, 1961. There was an argument afterward, according to inside sources, that Johnson called Kennedy a Communist Sympathizer. After the assassination, Vice President Lyndon Johnson was sworn in as president.
This is what Richard Hoagland wrote below this picture : “Looking appropriately solemn for the cameras, Lyndon Johnson takes the oath of office aboard Air Force One, only hours after the President’s assassination. Note Jacqueline Kennedy, right, Lady Bird Johnson and Vice Presidential aide Jack Valeti, kneeling, next to flowers. Between Valeti and Ladybird is Congressman Albert Thomas of Texas.” (Texas is where the president was murdered). Below that photo is a picture after the ceremony. Jacqueline Kennedy is crying unconsolingly, “while Johnson turns away from the camera and smiles at Congressman Thomas, who winks back at him and smiles broadly in return. Is this the behavior of resolute leaders who have just experienced a national tragedy, or of two conspirators who just pulled off a coup ?” Afterward, Johnson pursued a full scale war in Viet Nam against the communists (and against the wishes of President Kennedy). According to witnesses, the last words spoken by Johnson on his deathbed were “There’s blood on my hands !”

Quotations from Berkeley Square
How many of us have wished that we might escape from the dull reality of the Present and into the glamor and romance of Yesterday ? But if we could journey back into the mystery of the Past; should we find contentment or unhappiness ? John L. Balderston, Script Author
Now there is the wonder of a Hot-Air-Balloon. There is a New Age of speed and invention that we shall never live to see !
If you are drifting downstream in a boat and glance backward, there you may see an old lover in strange clothes ~ that would be the Past. You are drifting along in the Present, but cannot see around the bend of the river, for it is the Future. God is watching
from above and can see the Past, the Present and the Future; therefore Real Time is just an idea in the mind of God. Leslie Howard as Peter Standish

“Unlike here in England; America was brought forth from a vast continent, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the idea that all men were created equal. (Butler) But Sir, that idea is absurd ! It does seem a little cock-eyed, doesn’t it ?

“For fifteen years, professor Ehrlich worked developing his famous theory of the way Nature fights disease in the body. It became known in science as the ‘Side-Chain Theory’. It’s publication brought him great honor in the scientific world. He received the Nobel Prize. An institute was created for him in Frankfort. There he launched a series of experiments, applying his theory to the task of curing disease, by chemical molding of ‘magic-bullets.’ (or building immunity in the body by developing more antibodies). Dr. Ehlich’s Magic Bullet

The Diseases of the Body intertwined with sinful violations of Spiritual Laws : Dr. Ehrlich was a doctor who was a believer in God. All his life he worked intimately with diseases and their cures. Everyone who utters something on their death-bed, utters truth for him beyond question. Jesus on the cross, facing death, spoke of His Father as El Shaddai (not Jehovah, who he called the devil). Similarly-Dr.Ehrlich spoke of his lifelong wisdom regarding diseases of the body and mind on his death-bed.

“Magic Bullets will help cure thousands, but there can be no final victory over the diseases of the body, unless the diseases over the Soul are also overcome; for they feed on each other.” Edward G. Robinson as Dr. Ehrlich in Dr. Ehrlich’s Magic Bullet
“Kill someone and you’re a murderer; kill a million people and you’re a conqueror !” John Lithgow in Cliffhanger

Mae West Teaches Arithmetic To the Third Grade
Reading and studying is done by educated people. However, adults read and study different things. You young boys have to know arithmetic; adults have to know mathematics. Here’s your lesson in arithmetic : Addition. Addition is how to count things all together, for instance 2 + 2 = 4 and 5 will get you 10 if you’re smart. Now subtraction is how to count things taken away, for instance, if a man has 100 dollars and you give him a good time; you can leave him with only 2 dollars.
Mae West in My Little Chickadee

Joy in heart, more desirable than bullet in heart.
Kindness in heart, better than gold in bank.
Optimist see delicious donut; pessimist see only hole
Silence big sister to wisdom ~
Hasty conclusion like gunpowder, easy to explode

A Mystic Yogini Describes Death
Daddy — Listen : I know that you know – you’re dying and I know that you’re afraid, but you don’t have to be afraid. When I had that accident, I died — I mean just for a few minutes, but I saw it and it’s beautiful. Everyone you know that died you’ll see them
then and there. And Daddy, there’s music — bells & chimes — and you’ll begin to feel like you understand everything — and you don’t have a body anymore. And there’s this light, and it’s so bright and loving — and then you feel it reaching out to you — and pretty soon, you begin to understand, that you are made of that same light. ~

Contention and strife disturb our peace; only sleep restores for us the peace of a Golden Age.

I’m a kind man; if you’re gonna commit suicide – I may save you the trouble ! John Wayne ~ When I pass on; I’m gonna leave most of my land ~ well ~ to the nation, really. I’m gonna found a park, so that, no trees can be cut down to build houses with leaky roofs, or for hunters to kill the beaver for hats and no murder of buffalo for robes. Now, some folks are gonna say I’m doing this so I can sit up in the hereafter and look down on a park named after me. But it’s not about me, but in the name of the love that a woman and a man have for each other. Because, all the gold in the U.S. Treasury and all the harp music in heaven can’t equal what happens between a man and a woman in love and I want all of Nature to be growing with them and around them. I can’t explain it better than that. John Wayne

He serves the Father for the greater glory of His son. 8. No-one is above these codes, especially the king.

The Wisdom of King Solomon
If you have a loyal friend and a true lover you can trust, then
1. Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor. 2. Woe to one who falls, when there is another to lift him up. 3. Two can resist only one who tries to overcome him (especially, when your best friend is there to cover your back). 4. When two (lovers) lie down (in the winter) they stay warm together. 5. A cord of three strands knotted together tightly (yourself, one lover and one friend) is not quickly torn apart. Ecclesiastes 4– New American Standard Bible

How Do You Know You’re in Love ?
First, your blood begins to fizz, like ginger ale. Then you’re walking on air. Strangely enough, you begin to hear peculiar noises (like castanets clicking at odd moments).

The Case Against the Final Death of Jesus on the Cross
“It was Pilate who offered Jesus shelter and safety inside the Praetorium. He would not have done this for an ordinary criminal. It was Pilate who told the guards to ‘go lightly’ on the scourging and crucifixion of Jesus. The Gospel of Nicodemus tells us that Pilate had instructed his soldiers to ‘let Jesus be brought with gentleness.’ Jesus remained on the cross for only a few hours. (Mark 15.25 and John 19.14 ) The two men crucified with Jesus, although with broken legs were still alive when taken down from the cross; the presumption is that Jesus too was alive, whose legs were not broken. (John 19.32-33) When the side of Jesus was pierced, blood gushed out; a sure sign of life. Jesus disguised himself as a gardener (John 20.15) such a disguise would not be needed if he had risen from the dead (without healing). He was however, weak. Jesus undertook a
journey to Galilee with two of his disciples, showing his complete recovery. Even Pilate did not believe Jesus actually died in such a short time. (Mark 15.44)

Prayer for the Pets
And now Dear Lord, Let us bless these animals that are a part of God’s Creation; and are also a part of our Good Stewardship. The duties of good stewardship are feeding, caring and respecting the rights of animals to live and breed. All stewards are tested
from time to time. Therefore, we begin this blessing in a world that cannot hold onto love, because it is a world limited and uncertain. For our freedom of choice, we thank you. For our self-discipline ~ we thank ourselves ~for that means we are truly yogis. We thank you Lord, for the joy they bring us, as friends and companion as well as pets. We thank Thee again for all lovable creatures and critters of God’s imagination. My friend calls his pet Francis. Lord, watch over our servants in a lower station, and I know you remember another one of your servants : St. Francis of Assisi, who loved and respected all creatures, with the same kind of gentleness and patience as Jesus Christ himself. St Francis gave praise to you for all creatures, even though some creatures are mean and to be feared. Yea, we thank you for this celebration of creatures and critters, who serve our needs, like cows who give us milk and bees who give us honey. All such animals are serving man and God at the same time. Father, I know that the Demigods & Goddesses may have pets and I know that You, Yourself may have pets. So, I say bless all the pets. Amen Extrapolated from The Goodbye Bird

The Funeral Eulogy for Katie Elder
Almighty God, We commend the Soul of our dear departed sister Katie Elder to your care. As we commend her body into the ground next to her husband, everyone here agrees that she was beloved by all in this town; a hard-working, honest woman. She helped in your work, Oh Lord, in a thousand ways. She was a friend to all and a comfort to the sick. She has left this world, a little better for having lived in it. Those who knew her and loved her are better for having lived under the warmth of her smile and love. Katie Elder lived here for many years and she raised four sons ; John, Tom, Matt and Bud, the youngest. She was a woman who wanted nothing for herself; wanting only to
give rather than receive. She devoted her life to helping her family and friends. Earth to Earth, Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust, with the sure and certain belief in the Resur-rection into Eternal Life. Oh God, whose mercies cannot be numbered, we ask that you hear our prayers for Thy Servant, the Soul of Katie Elder and grant her entrance into the
Land of Light and Joy. We ask that she be granted fellowship with the Saints and Communion with Thy Servants, for Thy Sake. Amen

I guess I’ll have to dream the rest. If you can’t remember the things that we said, those nights that my shoulder held your sleepy head. If you believe that partings best; I guess, I’ll have to dream the rest. I guess I’ll have to dream alone, of honeymoon cruises, once dear to your heart, of two room apartments, where we said we’d start. Of foolish things we planned to own. Now, I guess I’ll have to dream alone. I can see that your heart has gone astray. As for me, I’ll love you in the same old way. I guess I’ll have to dream the rest. There will be no friends waiting, to throw shoes and rice and those heavenly moments will never come twice. I’m just thankful for those hours you blessed. Now, I guess, I’ll have to dream the rest. Popular Song ~ 1941

Our Great Naval Hero of the Revolutionary War
September 23, 1779, John Paul Jones wins a spectacular naval victory for the Americans in the Revolutionary War, by sinking two great British men of war. It was a stroke of military strategic genius. Both warships had sandwiched Jones on both sides and preparing to blow him out of the water. They waited for him to enter their trap. When Jones’s bow showed, they opened fire prematurely; Jones pulled down all sails at once and dropped anchor. The two warships fired on each other until they sank; not being able to see through the smoke !

Apple Blossoms in the Rain -song lyrics from the musical Seven Days Ashore
Two silhouettes ‘neath a starry sky, lost in dreams together, so deep in their love, they weren’t aware of the sudden change in the weather :
Time to reminisce, a raindrop and a kiss
Two hearts that seem to pound like thunder
Does the mem’ry still remain ~ Apple Blossoms in the Rain
When you said good-bye, the blossoms wondered why
The rain began to fall like tear drops
Is there still an ember, do you still remember ~ Apple Blossoms in the Rain.. 1944

Prayer for the Little Children from The Night of the Hunter

The winds blow and the rains are cold ~ and yet they do abide ~
Behold, they do endure it. Amen (The Prayer of a True Devotee of Immanuel)

“Relationships are always changing, sometimes after a short while or after a long time. All your relationships have an adjustment to be made. Why, oh why, must I be tested like this ? Hearts are sometimes thrown into the crucible of turmoil by testing. Maybe it is in the name of honor, pride, faith, or true love. If you want an easy answer; you won’t get it, for it goes deep. So now, let us go deeper, even the demigods are being tested; even out there among the stars, and galaxies, changes of catastrophic proportions are possible. Now, after a sudden epiphany, you have gone so deep that you have arrived into the Spiritual World and you find that God, Himself is there testing His Devotees and testing His and Your Love. My compassion goes out to all my brethren. Oh endure like
Lot did in the Bible. And come out of the refiner’s crucible as purified gold.”
Yours Truly, G. Julian Walker

I Love a Mystery ~ Song Lyrics
Whenever I’m a little on the weary side
I like to turn the lights down low
And treat myself to a harmless program
They send you on the radio
You know the kind of show
Dark night – a knock on the door
Bang ! Bang ! There’s a body on the floor !
Oh Boy, I love a mystery
Two men are out on a boat
One guy, has a dagger at his throat !
Oh Boy, I love a mystery
Murder ! Murder ! On the air
Courses, Courses, in your hair
Stranglers, Gangsters, Maniacs : EEEK !
It’s so relaxing, and then
A new clue, There’s a hanky on the place
Ah-Ha ! There’s a woman in the case
But where ? Where doth she roam ?
There’s moaning, groaning and sirens galore
Oh how I love a mystery for a Quiet !
Quiet, Evening at home. From Something in the Wind ~ starring Deanna Durbin

There’s also poison darts, knife to the throat and inhaling car fumes. And don’t forget, in an emergency, you can bite down hard on your molar tooth and it will release the cyanide gas.

The Himalayan Epiphany ~ From Atheist to Theist
Guru : Well, are you ready to start on your pilgrimage ? Isolate yourself and prepare yourself for talking with God. When you’re in the mountains, sometimes strange and wonderful things happen. (What sort of things?) Not a living soul within miles, nothing above you, except the sky and God. (Come, oh expectant moment, pregnant with possibilities). It is time to meet God again. (What then ?) That, my son, depends on you; that is why you prepare yourself. Disciple : You were right, strange things do happen up here. It was just at the mystical time, before night ends and daylight begins.
When the whole world seems to tremble in the balance. Gradually, the light began to filter through the darkness.
Then in an ethereal realm, a mysterious figure came in with the breeze. In an ecstatic moment; He was felt dancing through the trees. Then, the first rays of sun came up like the beginning of the world. I saw the mountains clearly then, while mist still weaved itself into the trees and was seen to float and fade away. I never saw anything like it. I thought I had been released from my body; that I was suspended in mid- air. All the things that confused me before, suddenly became clear to me. I felt a special kind of knowledge that was beyond human understanding. I felt that I could fly and was floating like the mist; but then I became frightened. I felt that if it lasted for another moment, I would die. I was terrified, and yet, I was willing to die in that moment, because I felt that God and me were One. Tyrone Power in The Razor’s Edge

Mediocrity is the Elephant in Your Room
You know, I do a shit load of reading, studying and praying; and I’ve come to a few conclusions that I want to share with you. People look at politicians and celebrities on TV, Newspapers and glossy magazines; and what do they see (and secretly say)? “I’m just as good as them, I’m special, I’m different. I could be any one of them.” Well, you can’t ! You know why ? Because in reality, mediocrity is where people live. It’s the elephant in your room; it’s ubiquitous. There’s mediocrity in your schools, in your dreams and in your family. Those of us who know this and those of us who understand the disease of the dull; will do something about it. We do more, because we have to. The deck was always against us. You’re either a big leaguer or a plebian – clawing your way into the subway at rush-hour. Kevin Spacey in Casino Jack

It was June, 1942 when the American Navy won its first major victory at Midway and, we believe, that there will be many more victories. Largely because of America’s Industrial might, which was running full speed ahead. In the 2 years following Midway
Japan built 6 new aircraft carriers; while American Shipyards turned out 17. By late 1943, Fleet Commander Admiral Chest Nimitz had new warships, 100,000 men and the most powerful Navy in history.

What are the Puritans all about
Puritans were people who were desperately afraid that somebody, somewhere might be having a good time (for they promoted strict households that were God fearing-which harkens back to the God of the Old Testament. The expression ‘spare the rod and spoil the child’ came from them.) H.L. Mencken

Women are not like Men in Real Life
Unfortunately, women aren’t just like men. They don’t talk like men; they don’t behave like men. For instance, when a woman’s in love, she’s helpless to do anything about it; until the man opens his heart first. Of course, she can scheme and get him to declare himself, but the initiative is with him. Maureen O’Hara in Immortal Sargent

Thunder & Lightning at Christmas
Pardon me Miss, Is this your umbrella ?
Pardon me Miss, It matches your eyes ~ Speakin’ of your eyes

“Many of H.G.Well’s predictions for the Twentieth Century have proved amazingly accurate. He saw air conditioned houses, detergents, suburbia, freeways for autos and airports for planes. Unlike other prophets; he saw the dark side too; he declared that there would always be wars.” Walter Lord in his book The Good Years

The Shocking Truth Behind the Death of President Mckinley
The death of President Mckinley was due to his doctor’s incompetence ! Two bullets had been shot at close range from a small gun. The first bullet glanced off his coat button and the cartridge fell harmlessly into his underwear. The second shot grazed his liver and kidneys and lodged itself in his backbone. The president’s doctors did nothing. This is the worst thing you can do with gunshot wounds. Gunshot is full of lead, which causes gangrene unless purified. At least, they could have poured alcohol on the wound. The president died of gangrene of the liver and kidney. Doctors now in the 21st Century are following the same lazy therapy of giving lip service instead of real service; they are also being sued all across the country. Extrapolated from The Good Years

Yes, We Will Be Very Discreet Now
I want to address the gentlemen in the audience now, to give them a warning. There will come a time when you are walking down a boulevard in Paris or strolling down the Champs-de-Elysees, with a beautiful lady on your arm. Maybe that beautiful lady is your wife; ah yes, that is fine. But maybe that lady is not your wife. Oh-0h, Well, in that case, it’s none of my business. Maurice Chevalier in Black Tights

“We are witnessing a renaissance of public spirit, a reawakening of sober public opinion, a revival of power in the people, the beginning of an age of thoughtful reconstruction, that makes our thoughts hark back to the age in which democracy was set up in America.
Woodrow Wilson 1912
The Democratic National Convention~ 1912 ~
The Convention was convened in Baltimore, where fifteen thousand delegates and spectators were packed into the hall, but it’s safe to say that none of them heard the speaker clearly, because that electronic miracle called the public address system had yet to be invented. Anyone who wanted attention depended on megaphones, lungs of leather and endless patience. It was June and that sea of restless humanity was sweating and hot. You see, air-conditioning had also not yet been invented. To make up for these problems, were creative people with new ideas. Ideas that just had to make you smile, like Delegate Platt from New Jersey, who tossed out a whole bunch of fragrant bananas into the crowd on an invitation to eat lunch together. Also a treat was the dramatic entrance of William Jennings Bryan, who marched in behind a man with a Victrola playing “Oh, You Beautiful Doll.” Everyone cheered as he waved his purple hanky.

Sermon Masterpieces by Bhaktivedanta Swami
We prepare our next life by our actual activities in the present life. Daiva Netrena (Sanskrit) means by the supervision of the authority of the Supreme. In an ordinary sense, daiva means “destiny.” Daiva supervision gives us a body selected from 8,400,000 forms; the chance does not depend on our selection, but is awarded to us according to our destiny. (The exception to this process is bhakti-yoga or activities in Krishna Consciousness; all bona-fide activities sanctioned by the guru are called amrita or permanent. That is to say eternal, because it is connected to The Lord).

The Role of God in the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake
“It was the wrath of God for the wickedness of the city.” Said Mrs. Jessie Rudisill
Mrs. Ruisell was a visitor and not a resident of the city, but she was there and felt that she knew because of her Christian upbringing. She was quoted again in the S.F. Chronicle : “Why, they tell me that there is nothing in Paris, nothing anywhere to equal the depravity of San Francisco. It was God’s judgement, this earthquake. I believe it.”
The irrepressible San Franciscans had a ready answer for this sort of analysis, who knew their city better than the visitors. Here is the rejoiner by Charles K. Field : “If, as some say, God spanked the town for being too frisky, why did he burn the churches down and saved Hotling’s Whiskey Warehouse, full of Hootch.” The Good Years

“In 1906, the year of the S.F. Earthquake, President Theodore Roosevelt won the Nobe Peace Prize for his role in ending the Russian-Japanese War. In Panama, American engineers moved whole mountains and conquered yellow fever to achieve the age old dream of The Panama Canal.” The Good Years

Why the Sherman Anti-Trust Law was Passed ~ The Good Years
“It’s none of the public’s business what I do; I owe the public nothing.” J. P. Morgan
“In 1900 the Census listed 1,750,178 gainfully occupied children aged ten to fifteen; in 1910 the figure jumped to 1,990,225. To many, this was sadly inevitable. The average family needed $800 a year to get along, yet most unskilled jobs paid less than $500 a year. Unless general wage levels went up, the children had to fill the gap.
“The golf course lies near the mill and almost every day the laboring children are looking out and sadly watching men at play.” Sarah N. Cleghorn. Child labor reform was only one sign; there was also the minimum wage and union revolt against poverty.

“Speak softly and carry a big stick.” Theodore Roosevelt

“All Negros can improve their life and be happy by keeping out of large cities, paying taxes promptly, keeping out of court and avoiding all forms of extravagance.”

The Value of the New Flying Machine: “Oh Come Josephine in my Flying Machine”
“The example of the bird does not prove that man can fly. Imagine the proud possessor of an airplane darting through the air. Is it speed alone that is important ? No, it is the thought of how he is going to slow down and land safely.” Simon Newcomb ~ 1903
As late as 1907, a speaker at the International Aironautical Congress thought that at best, the flying machine might someday prove useful in explorations of otherwise inaccessible places, such as mountain tops, swamps or clearings in densely wooded areas. All agreed it had little commercial value. The Wrights themselves didn’t think anyone would fly at night or in bad weather. They all agreed also that no one could ever build a machine large enough to carry a practical payload. The chairman W.B. Daemp-ffert concluded : “The wholesale destruction of life and property which would seem obvious, when loaded with bombs and grenades, is not to be looked for.” The British heard all of this and made their own research, their conclusion was exactly opposite. They were excited about its military value. When this attitude was presented to the Wright Brothers, they were encouraged to offer it to the U.S. Military, but the war dept. was not interested. When the British offered a lot of money for it; America had another look. It was not until 1908 that America finally was convinced of its military and commercial value. This attitude change was because of the improvements made by Wilber Wright to the flying machine; he demonstrated this dramatically by flying 75 miles in 113 minutes in 1908. This event made the imagination of the people soar.

A Pioneer of Movies~ Philosophizes
Time and Place in our movie story is usually a make-believe world. Believable characters are living somewhere; strangely, it could be the Past, the Present or even the Future.

Why We Need To Hear Stories
Just because something isn’t true is no reason why we can’t believe in it. Alright, here’s my special speech. Sometimes the things that may or may not be true are just the kind of things we need to believe in the most. What kind of things ? Things like this, that people are basically good, that honor, courage and virtue mean everything and that power and money may mean nothing without these things. That good always triumphs over evil. And, I want all young people to remember this : That true love never dies. People should believe in these things, because these are the things that good people should believe in. Robert Duvall in Secondhand Lions

The Ragtime Revival 1974-1979
History is full of circles or cycles, like what goes around – comes around. The golden age of innocence featured 3 genres of music : Ragtime, Ragtime Era Parlor Music (which is semi-classical music) and Ragtime Songs for voice & piano. The parlor music as well as Rags were mood enhancers. Fifteen different types of songs were engineered. Just to show that it wasn’t all Christian, a pagan movement was afoot featuring outrageous animal dances, like the Grizzly Bear, which had two types ~ Man & Man or Man & Woman. The former featured wrestlers gripping each other’s shoulders and rocking from side to side. At the climax, the two men would bump tails & growl. It was usually danced by two macho men who were drunk, like the old 49ers in San Francisco. There’s a struggle between men & women too; a wrestling match.

At the climax, the two would rub tails & growl (This was like a sexual mating call).
“By the ‘teens (1916, 1917, 1918 & 1919) the bouncy Fox-Trot and the faster One Step, had taken over from the Cakewalk (the first popular dance of the Twentieth Century) and the Slow Drag, Two-Step. Animal dances were the rage: The Bunny Hug
The Lobster Glide, The Baboon Bounce, The Kangaroo Hop and The Turkey Trot.”
Trebor Jay Tichenor ~ 1974

The Ragtime School for Femininity ~ A Song from Summer Magic
Verse : To begin with, a dress should complement your body. But don’t worry too much about the dress; it’s what’s inside the dress that counts.
Song : You must walk feminine, talk feminine, smile and beguile, feminine. Utilize your femininity, that’s what every gal should know, if she wants to catch a Beau.
(I feel all giggily) You must Dance feminine, glance feminine, act shy and look feminine. Complement his masculinity, that’s what every gal should know, if she wants to catch a Beau. (Bridge) Let him do the talking, men adore good listeners. Laugh, but not loudly (ha – ha) if he should choose to tell a joke. Be radiant, but delicate, memorize the rules of etiquette. Be demure, sweet and pure. (Hide the real you) You must look feminine, dress feminine; you’re at your best, feminine : Emphasize your femininity.
That’s what every gal should know ~ femininity ~ femininity ~

The Nile: A Meditation by Robert Ardrey ~ Script writer for the movie Khartoum
~ The sun rises and is seen between two large pyramids ~ then the Nile appears
The Nile was always there. Long before Cairo; long before the tombs of Kings. It was the reason for everything. It’s a little hard to grasp how far this river has been flowing. These are the waters drained from South African lakes, 4000 miles away to make Egypt green. The Nile has its memories. The story of Khartoum is a recent one, less than a century old. That’s yesterday in this part of the world. But, however far back you go, all of the Nile’s recollections have several things in common. It seems quite impossible to live next to this river and not have visions of eternity. Then, there’s always God, for instance, or if you prefer, the gods. With that in mind, there’s always a mystery. You always wind up with a few questions no one can answer, like how those giant statues were made. One more thing, why is it that everything outside is so big, larger than life. Is it vanity ? Vanity (?) ~ Perhaps ~ or visions. In this part of the world vanity was always mixed up with visions, but it’s the Nile that remains, the original fact that we started with, and of course, the desert. Khartoum, starring Charlston Heston

It’s Time from the Second Epic Movie of The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R.Tolkien
You still have to taste the bitterness of mortality. Whether by sword or by slow decay of time you will die. And there will be no comfort for you, nor comfort to ease the pain of his passing. He will come to death : An image of the splendor of kings and men in
Glory; undimmed before the breaking of the world. But you, my daughter, will linger on in darkness and in doubt; as nightfall in winter comes without a star. Here you will dwell, bound to your grief, under the fading trees; until all the world is changed and the long years of your life are utterly spent. The Two Towers

The Search for Identity
The desire for meaning is so acute, that we either consume enormous energy and time in the search for it or else we just retreat from the problem and hope we can forget it.
(But there is a quest going on deep inside us) The quest, if we pursue it, is popularly called The Search for Identity. It is simply the attempt to find meaning in our lives.

I’m Living a Life of Shadows ~ Song Lyrics by William Sitol
We all can dream, love ~ think ~ and scheme
How to make fortune smile ~ but do they come true ?
Our plans that look new ~ are maybe mistakes that make you blue.
One little smile, always in style ~ One smile has made me glad
But those days are past, and others went fast, now I’m lonely & sad.
Chorus: I’m living a life of shadows, since I lost my girl ~
What I have gone through ~ All just, for you
Should have opened a heart of pearl
Just memories remain ~ like some sweet refrain
They linger, and won’t let me be ~
I’m living a life of shadows
Won’t you please bring back the sunshine to me. 1923

Quotations from Napoleon & Love (A PBS Production)
Napoleon Bonaparte’s parade to power was established after he murdered the Democratic Convention of France with canon fire (which he justified by labeling them rebels). Here is his speech “Those rebels failed to understand that rebellion is war, and victory without bloodshed is not possible. Those rebels failed to understand the principles of war. Yes, I fired live ammunition into the crowd, for when an angry mob knows little about firearms; it is a policy of ignorance, I merely educated them.”
“My Josephine is a miracle of nature. A revelation. Her kisses are burning my heart”
“A boor is not a gentleman, for he speaks of stirring up hatred at parties. Military boors are the worst kind of bore, for that’s all they talk about.” Josephine
“I have a recurring sexual desire, like all men.” Napoleon
Love & Friendship : There are women that are in harmony with my own heart and there are men who are in harmony with my own mind. Napoleon
Napoleon’s Consort Josephine speaks : “Men think that spending an hour in primping is a waste of time. What they don’t understand is that a woman’s face and body is a work of art and great art has always been labored over carefully.”

The Ancient Custom of Giving Quarter : One of the ways that warriors get acquainted is by fighting. The reward is respect and fear. Yet, a gentleman warrior, who has survived many campaigns should enjoy a special privilege. Gentlemen Warriors give Quarter or a requested recess from fighting upon request of either party. Thus experienced strategists can get better acquainted and learn from each other’s victories. (Oh thank you, we can fight to the death later). G. Julian Walker

Whisper Sweet and Whisper Low ~ Song Lyrics by Alfred Bryan
The night has let its curtain fall ~ The golden day has gone its way
The roses slumber by the wall ~ It’s time to love, it’s time to say ~
Whisper sweet ~ and whisper low ~And say the words “I love you”
While the shadows come and go ~Just whisper low “I love you”
Kiss me with your eyes ~
while the love-light is burning
Now, while I’m yearning ~ whisper sweet and whisper low
Stay with me and say “I love you.”
Let’s linger till the stars are gone ~ Your lips to mine ~ in love divine
Our hearts seem closer in the dawn ~ Your kisses taste like golden wine
Whisper sweet and whisper low; and say the words “I love you.” 1928

I Want to Meander in the Meadow ~ Song Lyrics by Harry Woods
Heard a bird in the morning ~ in a great big empty lot
But the song he sang, just made me feel blue.
What’s the good of pretending, when I’m happy when I’m not
Guess I’m nothing but a dreamer, that happiness forgot :
I want to meander in the meadow, see the sunbeams kissing the dew
I want to meander in the meadow, with the birds and flowers I knew
How I can remember in the meadow, when my days were happy and carefree
Up at dawn to greet the sun, singing a song,’ till the day is done.
I remember meeting my love in the meadow, when the shadows began to fall
We used to meander in the meadow, and it’s the sweetest memory of all.
I know if I had a million wishes, there would be one wish I’d say
I want to meander in the meadow ~ Be a kid again, just for a day.
Took a look from my window, on a crowded street below
Not a tree, or bird, or flower in sight
Took a look from my window, not so very long ago
And the scene was so much different ~ the scene that I love so :
I want to meander in the meadow ~ see the sunbeams kissing the dew
I want to meander in the meadow ~ with the birds and flowers I knew
How I can remember in the meadow, when my days were happy and carefree:
Up at dawn, to greet the sun, singing a song, till my day is done.
I remember meeting my love in the meadow
When the shadows began to fall
And it’s the sweetest memory of all.
I know if I had a million wishes, there would be one wish I’d say
I want to meander in the meadow ~ Be a kid again, just for show. ~ 1929

Nostradamus was alone throughout the epidemic working among the sick; he cured many merely by insisting on fresh air and unpolluted water. The other half of his talent as a prophet came from his study of a rare old book, known as The Mysteries of Egyptian Magic.” The Prophecies of Nostradamus

Early Christian Scholars rejected The Old Testament’s God
Most of the Gnostics rejected the entire Old Testament, at least in any straight-forward meaning. They blamed the inferior God of the Old Testament for creating all the evil in the material world. Marcion himself posed sharper problems by listing contradictions between the Old and the New. He claimed that the Old Testament God who ordered battles and slaughter, was driven by anger rather than love; and this was incompatible with the merciful Father of Jesus Christ.

A Farewell Tribute to President Obama : A Native born Hawaiian
Hawaiian culture and tradition play a big part in living with the aloha spirit, which means giving from the heart. It is a gesture of aloha to give a flower lei to show kindness. A lei is a garland or necklace; it can be made from flowers, shells, leaves or other materials. A lei is given as a symbol of affection or respect or just to acknowledge a special occasion.” Joanna Carolan

Mr. Obama is the only president who carries an Hawaiian Driver’s License on his person at all times. Quotes by President Obama : “Every year my family and I take a Christmas trip to Hawaii. When I look back on my years in Hawaii; I realize how truly lucky I was to have been raised there.” Mr. Obama admits that he is liable to go surfing anywhere and at any time : “I’m going to go bodysurfing at an undisclosed location.” “Whether we are Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu or Buddhist; Hawaiian culture tells us to honor our elders or grandparents.” “In growing up in Hawaii, not only do you appreciate the natural beauty, but there is an ethic of concern for the land – that dates back to Native Hawaiians.” “Of all the rocks upon which we build our lives; we are reminded today that family is the most important.” “We are not as divided as our politics suggest; the dream we share is more powerful that the differences we have.” Barack Obama’s Inaugural Address 11/20/2009 “Individual responsibility and mutual respect is the essence of the American Promise.”

Quotations from Elizabeth (Queen of England)
The Catholic’s Greatest Fear : A Country Divided into Catholic & Protestant
England 1554 : Henry the 8th is dear. The country is divided; Henry’s eldest daughter Mary, a fervent Catholic is Queen; to celebrate this joyous occasion 3 Protestants are burned alive at the stake ! Princess Elizabeth is imprisoned until Mary’s death. Then, she is declared Queen of England. England had no army or navy and was bankrupt.
The First Declaration of Queen Elizabeth : “I was required by my sister Mary to declare all Protestants as heretics and have them killed, but I refused with this important declaration: I only do as my conscience dictates !” Other famous quotes by Elizabeth :
“Innocence is the most precious thing you possess; lose that and you lose your soul.”
“I do-not like wars; they have an uncertain outcome.” “Does not a queen sit under the same stars as other women ?”“Do not presume to know the secrets of a woman’s heart !” “I have no desire to make windows into men’s souls !” “Common sense is a most English Virtue !” “Everyone should vote on the basis of their conscience !”
(By approving Queen Elizabeth’s Measure of Uniformity; she reclaimed the Freedom of Religion, which was first guaranteed by Socrates in Greece and enlightened Roman Emperors in olden times.) After the Freedom of Religion was established by Elizabeth in England; His Holiness the Pope issued a Bull. He declared that Queen Elizabeth is a pretender and is only queen of wickedness. He declared that her subjects were absolved of their religious duty toward her and any man who undertakes her assassination would be welcomed by angels into the kingdom of heaven. “A man may confess to anything under torture, but that is not my way.” “There is one thing that prevents me from promiscuity, which is all over the court and that is ~ I am deeply religious.”
The Virgin Queen : “You may make whores of my ladies in waiting at court; but you may not count me as one of your whores; for I am a Queen and am obligated to be an example to all women of virtue. I give myself only to a husband.” “I have become a virgin, because I could not find an honorable, virtuous and religious man. Observe Lord
Burly; I have given up marriage and have accepted that I am married to England.” (She reigned for another 40 years and by the time of her death, England was the richest and most powerful country in Europe.)

Masquerade: It is an ancient custom that suitors in the courts of Europe of the 15th & 16th Century enjoyed a party called a masquerade ball, whereby everyone wore a mask; especially in front of official potentates, for courting is a private affair. Elizabeth

It is my first participation in a ballet and I am but a child. The ballet has just ended. He (the male star) rushes off the stage in a flourish as the overture strikes up The Nutcracker Suite just beyond the drapes. I slowly rise, placing one foot in front of another, just like the prima ballerina. Stepping forward, I join the two stars at the front of the stage and begin my curtsy. Alicia senses my presence. She smiles down at me and hands me a rose “Bravo” she says and kisses me on the cheek. The audience loves this and cheers ! Goldie Hawn from her autobiography A Lotus Grows in the Mud

My Father’s Advice for living in New York
Hey Kink (Goldie’s childhood nickname) whatever you do, stay real in the big city. Show business is a fake business, so don’t let it fool you. Always look like you know what you’re doing, even if you don’t; and one more thing: Don’t pick your nose in public.

Little Boy: “How can I be sad if I don’t remember my mother ? “ ~ Deep Silence ~
Zen master : “Worldly affections lead to ties and passions, but in the end, you lose what you love. That’s why you experience pain.

“I try to be mindful of the fact that my children came through me, but that I am just a vessel and I cannot claim their lives as mine. Their journey is clearly their own; and so the great circle continues ~ the circle of life.” Goldie Hawn

Quotations from Goldie Hawn’s Autobiography: A Lotus Grows in the Mud
August 1965 ~ I haven’t a clue where I’m going. I have only been in California a few months and I feel like a foreigner amid the “flower-power” and the “Anti-Vietnam War fever” preached by the Hippie Culture. The sun is shining and the radio is playing I Got You Babe by Sonny & Cher. Long haired Hippies are everywhere and the wind is blowing my hair too; while I fly down the freeway in my convertible. The next number on the radio is Mr. Tambourine Man by Bob Dylan. I have never felt so free.
There’s never a happy ending for people who lose their integrity. Not just in show business, but in the fast-paced competitive world we live in. This is a world where people are tempted to put all their energy into winning at the sacrifice of their souls.
If we can cultivate compassion for those who have hurt us; we have the possibility of overcoming our anger, pain and fear. Yes, compassion is great medicine.

Success is just a word, a relative concept; It’s how we handle success that matters.
Altered States: Exploration of the mind is the most powerful frontier of all.
Laughter: Comedy breaks down walls. It frees us for just a moment from the ugliness of this world. Although many people speak different languages; we all share the common language of laughter. It transcends every language on the face of this planet
yet it needs no translation. Where did it come from ? It came from an unknown primordial place that all humans share and it sounds like this Ha-Ha-Ha ! That is the sound of joy. Fate : You often meet your fate on the road you take to avoid it.
Life’s Rewards : True rewards come from the intention of living an honorable life.
Woman’s Liberation, apart from politics means something different for every woman. To me it’s laughing out loud. Elvis was introduced to me and reached out and touched my twisted hair. That man and his music made my teenage hormones rage.
Wonder: Wonder shows in the light of our eyes; without it they become dull and old.
It is the simple things in life that hold the most wonder; the color of the sea, the sand between your toes or the laughter of a child.
Prayer: Never doubt the magic of miracles. Just because we can’t see them, taste them, touch them or smell them; doesn’t mean they don’t exist.
Embracing Strangers: Sometimes we feel there is nothing new under the sun and then suddenly springs a friendship like this ~ a flower. Treasures are waiting just beneath the earth, if only we look for them. One should never be closed to new friend- ships, no matter how old or tired or busy. Every relationship has its own unique gifts. Grief : Loss is part of loving; yet letting go of someone we love is the hardest thing we will ever do. Cordially Yours, Goldie Hawn

“We Americans, in particular are a very fortunate people, with a high standard of living. A land abounding in natural beauty, and a degree of freedom rare in the world. Of course, our blessings come from God and naturally we should be grateful. That’s why Christians thank God before meals ~ at least on holidays ~ and maybe give a few dollars to charity or to our church from time to time. This is gratitude.”
President Jimmy Carter

“We gave at least tacit approval to Israel’s disastrous invasion of Lebanon in 1982, then sent in US Marines to bomb and strife villages around Beirut. We invaded and defeated Grenada. We invaded and destroyed a good portion of Panama (which was condemned by the United Nations) and on a more massive scale, we orchestrated the Persian Gulf War. In none of these cases did we first exhaust the opportunities for peaceful resolution.
Yet, with a deep and consistent commitment to peace; America could be a tremendous beneficial influence on troubled regions of the world, by resolving & preventing wars.” The Personal Beliefs of Jimmy Carter ~ A Bestselling Book

The Feminine Mystique from The Gnostic Gospels
Unlike many of his contemporaries among the deities of the Ancient Near East; the god of Israel (Jehovah) shared his power with no female divinity, nor was he the divine husband or lover of any. Indeed, the absence of feminine symbolism for God, marks Judaism, Judaic Christianity and Islam. In striking contrast to the world’s other religious
traditions, whether in Egypt, Babylonia, Greece or Rome. Especially in the Old World of Africa, India and North America, abound in feminine symbolism. Elaine Pagel

“For me, God is not only committed to absolute purity and justice, but also filled with grace, forgiveness and love. A personal faith in Christ and a special reverence for him will help to reveal God’s transcendent love.” Jimmy Carter

Christian Joke
A Christian in name only approached the tribunal in Heaven. St. Peter and a few angels sat at the table. The supplicant confessed: “During the Depression years; I saw a starv-ing family on the street and gave them 50 cents. More recently, when my neighbor’s home burned down; I gave them a folding table worth 50 cents. Do I get into Heaven ?” The angels consulted with St. Peter and said, “What is to be done with this man, who, other than giving this dollar in charity, has been grossly sinful.”
St. Peter replied: “Give him his four bits and tell him to go to hell !”

Facing Up To Sin (Purport by Jimmy Carter)
“Blessed is he whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man whose sin, the Lord does not count against him and in whose spirit there is no deceit. When I kept silent, my bones wasted away and my sin weighed down on my conscience all day long. Day and night, the Lord’s Hand was heavy on me and my strength was sapped, as in the intense heat of summer. Then I confessed my sin to Him.
Yea, we need to confess our transgressions to the Lord and He forgives us. Psalm 32, 1-5 “Fortunately, God’s willingness to hear our confession and forgive us is inexhaustible. The Psalms express beautifully, the need for confession and the joy of forgiveness.”

“A successful author is not endowed especially with riches or fame, but in
an imagination of catastrophic proportions.” The Eye of the Dolphin ~ Movie

Why we need stories and movies from the movie Second Hand Lions
Just because something isn’t true; doesn’t mean we can’t believe in them. Alright, here’s my speech : Sometimes we need to believe in stories with a happy ending. What kind of things should be in these stories ? Things like this : That people are basically good and the righteous people are victorious because they have honor, courage and virtue. These are the kind of people we look for to protect us from evil. The teachings of these kind of people are that power and money mean nothing without kindness and respect. And I want all young people to take this lesson to heart : That true love never dies and that these are the kind of things good people should believe in. Robert Duvall

Life is wonderful when you’re young. Before you know it; you’re middle aged. Then you’re a Senior and before you know it; you’re elderly. Can there be any more ? Yes, comes the answer; there’s old age and elderly. It is then, that you must ask your loved ones: “Am I alive ?” The honest answer is: “I’m none too sure of that !”
Now everybody laugh; so we’ll know for sure.

“When you’re stuck on Mars and you’re a genius at technology; you’ll have to face the problem of adapting machinery to new exploratory missions. The problem is maybe your ship was not designed for such a mission. In that case there’s only one thing you can do : Science the Shit out of it ! Matt Damon in The Martian

Mark Watney : Space Pirate
I’ve been thinking about laws on Mars. There’s an International Treaty that states that no country can lay claim to anything not on planet Earth. Yet, there’s another treaty that says; if you’re in anybody’s country; Maritime Law applies. So, Mars is in International Waters. Now, NASA is an American, non-military organization that owns the rocket and

is linked to Earth. However, the second I leave my craft; I’m in International Waters. So, here’s the cool part. I’m going to the Sciaparelli Crater on Mars to commandeer a lander, that no one has given me permission to do. However, under Maritime Law it is acceptable; but that means that I’m a pirate. That’s me Mark Watney : Space Pirate !

“The Iraqi War against Saddam Husain had nothing to do with terrorism, Islamic fanaticism or weapons of mass destruction; that was all propaganda. We at the CIA have looked at this for years and never found the connection. Saddam Husain and Osama Bin Laden were enemies.” Richard Clarke “Most Americans believed that Iraq had something to do with 9-11. This was the administration propaganda under President Bush.

Editor’s Note to A Lotus Grows in the Mud
It was a distinct pleasure, as an educated person to read Goldie Hawn’s autobiography:
A Lotus Grows in the Mud. It was printed on high quality paper in different colored inks for titles and ideas of special interest. There is a plethora of bright and beautiful photographs. There is also a lot of quotes from Goldie and an immense collection of wisdom, as well as quips and jokes. All toll; it is a revolutionary book in it’s conception
will certainly influence authors of all types. A quote from A Lotus Grows in the Mud
Jerusalem: When you consider the sorrow, sadness and pain of this troubled city; it is overwhelming. I think of the pity of a world where these three faiths : Judaism, Islam and Christianity, who profess a fervent love of their God, can’t live together, pray together and live in some kind of possible harmony (Saladin was one of the few leaders who achieved it.) India: I set off on a cab, swerving left & right to avoid rickshaws, children, street beggars and sacred cows. There are elephants and giant Tata Trucks; their cabs are adorned with effigies of gods, as they bounce – little bells are tinkling and vibrant garlands of marigolds swaying. Mixed with the smell of Jasmine & Frangipani is the acrid smoke of truck exhaust. Back to my cab; with little or no shock absorbers, we bounce in and out of pot holes, which are more numerous than people. After a short time; I feel like my gallbladder and liver have traded places.
When we were children, we lived entirely in the moment. We knew no greater pleasure than to jump in a pile of leaves, ride bikes through muddy puddles or make crazy faces at each other with mouths full of ice cream. Tomorrow was only tomorrow.
Somewhere along the way, we felt self-conscious, because adults around us started to tell us “Act your Age.” But what does age have to do with play ? All you have to do is unleash the child in you and watch how it unleashes the child in those around you. As Einstein said, “a person starts to live only when he can live outside himself. So dance that dance and sing that song. And don’t forget to go the park and ride the merry-go-round.” (yea, climb the monkey bars like a monkey or just play Frisbee.) Life is too short, so go-for-it ! Goldie Hawn

“There’s an undeclared war facing us Americans and it’s really about having more choices. Transparent choices and healthier choices. It is a health alternative dilemma. A choice between two roads going all natural or using synthetic drugs. The cost of synthetic drugs has become criminal. Just see the mark up : Lipitor (100) tablets ~ cost $272.37. Cost of ingredients $5.80. Percentage mark up 4,696 % . Zocor : Consumer price $350.2, cost of ingredients $8.63, percentage mark up 4,059%. What they don’t tell you is that prescription drug deaths are the fourth leading cause of death in the USA.
The American Medical Association came out with these statistics:
Americans killed in Viet Nam per year: 10,000 people. Americans killed in World War II per year 49,000. American deaths from pharmaceutical drugs 106,000 people. Prescription drugs treat symptoms and they certainly don’t cure anything; because there’s no profit in a cure. That’s why, given a choice of intelligent people; going all natural is always considered a better and safer alternative when it comes to health.” Lee Euler

Introductory Statement: San Francisco, Guardian of The Golden Gate; stands today a queen among sea ports; industrious, mature and respectable. But perhaps she dreams of the city she once was: Splendid, Sensuous and magnificent. A city that suddenly perished with a cry. A cry still heard in the heads of those who knew her. A cry that happened at exactly 5:30 Am on April 18th, 1906

“Maybe we don’t know all that we think we know.” Jack Kerouac in Big Sur

Hard Liquor Protocol from the movie Big Sur
Any drinker knows how the process works. The first day when you get drunk is o.k. The morning after means a big head, but you can kill that easy with a few more drinks and a meal. But if you pass up the meal and go on to another night’s drunk; you’ll wake up and want to keep the drunk going. Until you continue into the fourth day, then there will come the day when drinks won’t take the effect they used to, because you are chemically overloaded and you’ll have to sleep it off, but you can’t sleep anymore, because it was the alcohol that helped you sleep. The last part of day 5 and at night delirium sets in with sleeplessness, cold sweats and trembling (called the shakes). Then suddenly you get a groaning feeling of weakness, when your arms are numb and useless. Then come the nightmares; nightmares of on-coming death. Jack Kerouac

Quotations from Elizabeth of the Golden Age
The Life of an ancient mariner : Can you imagine what it is like to cross an ocean ? For weeks you see nothing but the horizon, perfect and empty. You live in the grip of fear. Fear of storms, fear of sickness on board and just fear of immensity. So you must drive that fear down deep into your belly, then study your charts and watch your compass. Then you pray, pray for a fair wind. Then you hope; pure, naked, fragile hope
At first, it’s no more than a haze on the horizon, so you watch. You watch ! Then, in place of the haze is a smudge; a shadow on the far waters. For a day, for another day, a stain slowly spreads along the horizon taking form. Until the third day; you let yourself believe, you dare to whisper the word Land ~ Land ! Life ! Resurrection !! The true adventure, coming out of the vast unknown, out of the immensity; into new life. That, Your Majesty, is the New World ~ Sir Walter Raleigh’s confession to Queen Elizabeth
Angry Words of War : Queen Elizabeth: What do you know of Enterprise England Ambassador ? Two Spanish armies have landed on the coast of Norfolk and freed Mary, Queen of Scots from prison there. What should I feel about these events, should I be fascinated ? Spanish Ambassador: The Winds of War are blowing your way ! Queen Elizabeth: You will leave my presence, sir. You will go back to your rat hole. Go tell Phillip, your king, that I fear neither him, his priests, nor his armies. Tell him, if he wants to shake his fist at us; we are ready to give him such a fight that he will wish that he had kept his little fist in his own pocket !

Quotation from The Voyage of the Vizcaina ~ a best-selling book
Samuel Eliot Morison saw Columbus, above all as a man of action and a remarkably gifted sailor. He celebrated him on those terms. Taviani, the patriotic Genoise historian viewed him as a flawed genius and visionary, whose life was a ‘wonderful adventure.’ Kirkpatrick Sale regarded Columbus as little more than a mass murderer, viewing his landing in Hispanola in 1492 as an extinction-level event. Columbus was a liar and so mistrustful of others, because he assumed they were as untruthful as he. He thought everybody was against him and he had a very tactical approach to the truth. For example, on his second voyage, he forced his crew to swear that Cuba was not an island, but part of the mainland (of America). Thus Columbus is actually not the discoverer of America, but of Cuba. Columbus was also a money-grubber, an egotist and stingy. He was always travelling and on the run, haunted by the idea that his time was running out. He switched friends whenever it seemed necessary. Columbus only took; he never gave and behaved despicably toward his lovers. He was inconsiderate and ruthless. He thirsted for fame, status, gold and power (like all conquistadors). He changed his name
to Christoferens or ‘the bearer of Christ’ and wanted to enforce Christianity on the world.
(Concerning the 4th Voyage of Columbus by Klaus Brinkbaumer & Clemens Hoges)

Spanish Conquistadors Discover the Aztecs
In 1517 Francisco Fernando de Cardoba discovered the Aztecs in what was then Mexico. They were surprised to find a race of warriors, since the conquistadors were very proud warriors (who usually had the advantage of knowing all the cutting edge weapons of the times). Because Cardoba had a small army with him and had metal breast plates and hats; he decided that he would wipe out these warriors and show them just how good a conquistador can be ! Cardoba underestimated his enemy and their numbers, as they soon overpowered him and he lost his life. A handful of men survived and ran back to the ship in the harbor. In that same year -1517 – Herran Cortes went back to Mexico with 6 hundred soldiers in eleven ships. This fascist army succeeded in wiping out the Aztec race but did not give them the respect that a warrior is entitled to.

Hippie Christianity Presents : The Jive Version of the Bible
Preface: Ladies & Gentlemen, Christian Churches present a gospel according to themselves only. They don’t accept any other version, because they are narrow-minded bigots, who want you to be their zombie and use you as a sacrificial lamb. But there are at least 2 ways to look at the Bible. Here is one. (Pastor) We will begin our Worship Service with this responsive question: Do you dig my Jive ? And the Congregation will say: Solid Jack ! This is my associate Pastor Mack, he watches my back; just as sure as my name is Jack. When I repeat the question: Do you dig my Jive ? The Congregation will say : Mellow Mack ! It is time for the Collection – Basket Usher’s Prayer: Now bet your money from 1 to 5 : Do You Dig My Jive ? Pastor’s Sermon: When Jive first started, there wasn’t a Hep Cat born. That was when Adam, whom at night would cry and made Eva moan. The next morning, they both were born again pagans and were speaking in a strange tongue. He said: Do you Dig My Jive ? And she said: “Solid Jack!” Do you Dig my Jive ? “Mellow Mack!” You can bet your money from 1 to 5, do you dig my jive ? Then came Noah, who was given the Jive straight from the Lord, so he could gather some of the animals on Earth and lead ’em into that old Ark. Of course you remember how Daniel was thrown into the lion’s den and jived all the lions, so that they were all great friends. And even lions know never to eat their friends. Happy Thanksgiving. Now Rip van Winkel is given as the example of not knowing how to jive. Instead of jiving Rippy, his wife just jacked him up and so he left there and drifted off into Sleepy Hollow Valley. Poor Rip van Winkel, because he didn’t know how to jive his wife is sleeping up there still. This is an example of a narrow-minded square, who cannot see the value of a Hep Cat. And finally I’m going to bring you back to Adam and Eve and how she taught Adam how to solve a jigsaw puzzle, by putting this thingy into that thingy in the dark. However, I am bound to secrecy in the Confessional. Finally, let me know this: Do you dig my Jive ? Solid Jack ! Do you dig my Jive ? Mellow Mack ! Now, pick a number from 1 to 5, Do you dig my Jive ? G. Julian Walker
Quotations from Audrie’s Rain
When you have too much on your mind; you’ve got to let some of it out. It is then you may hear a yell or a scream.
A dead parent’s spirit can be watching their children from Heaven. They have the power then to watch you, interact secretly and pray with you. You may feel their spirit all around in the cemetery or just in your room. You may feel it when the wind blows in summer or think you see them in the sunset. Some say butterflies are angels that were sent to you when you grieve, to pacify you and remind you of a love that is never lost.
Don’t you know that playing pranks on Holy Men is the quickest way to get to hell !
Sassy Mrs. Flanders: A woman has charming things to attract men, like cake (she grabs one tit) and pie (she grabs the other). Now how’s your pipes ?

“Celtic sources are the assumed origin of the Arthurian Legend. We are told that the Grail is originally a cauldron. A symbol of both fertility and immortality. It brought forth marvelous legends of revitalization and resurrection of dead armies. Further it is said that King Arthur went into the Underworld in search of the ‘cauldron of rebirth’. In the Hindu Tradition, there was a pond of magical waters; by immersing a body in it that was dead within 24 hours; he could be brought back to life to fight again. Ponce de Leon also was searching for ‘the fountain of youth’. It was the same idea. In the Underworld, there was a place called ‘the watery abyss’ just like in the Greek & Roman Tradition describes a boatman who collects coins to take you over a mystical lake to the land of the dead or the Underworld. What we are talking here about is a worm-hole, which in ancient times was available in certain rivers, lakes and wells. They were portals to other realms. Water was linked symbolically with the moon, which was in turn linked with the feminine principle of God (Moonlight is the nourishing principle of vegetables supplied at night by the mercy of The Lord ~ Bhagavad-Gita). Somewhere in that strange land called The Underworld resides The Lord of Death.”
“Ewte means ‘resplendent mind’ and ‘the tails of newts’. These are ingredients used in the Witch’s Cauldron, waiting for the evil incantation. The Hebrew letter symbol Yod, is the first letter of the god Yahweh or Jehovah. Thus the Grail had a dark side too. Jehovah was originally a god of volcanos (where he often had his enemies pushed in).
The spirit of volcanos is nasty and unpredictable; Jehovah had a bad temper too. He was associated with the Roman God Vulcan.” The Truth Behind The Holy Grail, The Philosopher’s Stone and The Elixir of Life. A book by Gary Osborn & Philip Gardiner

A Guest for Breakfast : I just happened upon this abandoned breakfast table. It was set for 2 persons and included coffee, orange juice, water and untouched entrees. It is complete right down to the morning paper, which I found lying on the floor. Inci-dentally, this paper has a bullet hole right in the middle of it. It looks as if someone’s husband missed the 820 Train this morning. In fact, he must have missed it for good; for this bullet-hole is right between the Society Section and the Want Ads.

Tonight’s discussion is concerned with the thorny problem that all parents face as they survey their children: Is Co-existence Possible ! The problems of the teenager are well discussed. But I would like to say a word for the father or middle-ager. The middle-ager is truly an outcast from society. Youth pays no attention to him, except to steal his hub caps (those traditional symbols of virility). He can drive down the dusky road of life and arrive at his destination with a cooled-off hot-rod : Forever doomed to be a mere spectator in the great drag race of life. Alfred Hitchcock Presents

Now there is a new dimension in communication with the other side. Every day in America there is an average of 774 Near Death Experiences, during which a person is declared legally dead before being resuscitated. Most report seeing a blinding white light and hearing chimes. For some, a near death experience brings a spiritual awakening – for others, there is a darker side.

Do you understand cats? Their behavior speaks of Freedom and Independence. In their minds; they don’t belong to anyone. They are a type of pet that appeals to the democratic mind; they are only happy when they can come and go as they please. You can feed ’em and pet ’em, but you must respect their individuality. Here are some guidelines, don’t make any sudden moves; it sets off their hunting instincts, then they become angry. And speaking of hunting instincts, cats are nocturnal creatures who are obliged to go out at night and party with other cool cats! That Darn Cat ~ a Walt Disney Movie

Egocentric people have noble sounding excuses for themselves. On the other hand, there are devout people who say that we are all sinners and have to carry the sins of the world on our shoulders, but that’s not my kind of Christianity. Robert Taylor

“You have a responsibility for living. There is no responsibility after dying, except for the living. Your body is either burned (cremated) or buried. One is not necessarily better than another, but burning is the most antiseptic; especially when there is a contagious diseased involved. The protocol for Holy Men & Women though, is to be buried with honor and thusly too inspire others to be holy.” Extrapolated from

A Middle Age Woman Looks at Old Age
Women have their own hope chest. A hope chest of products to keep them young and beautiful. Their motto is stay as beautiful as you can. But despite all your dreams of eternal youth; old age finds you with withered sagging breasts, unwanted fat and stretch marks all over your blubbering thighs, as well as a dumpy behind. Isn’t it strange how things change? Ellen Burstyn in The King of Marvin Gardens ~1972

“In the court of Henry the VIII where gentile court dances were in vogue; a bold new dance came from Spain. It was called La Volta (a volt or a shock to the system). It involved taking one hand around the waste of your demure young lady and the other hand scooping her up by the bottom of her thighs (!) and sailing her around in the air while the maiden holds one hand on his head and the other waving high in the air. Whee!
This indeed shocked the prudish people in court; but Henry the VIII laughed lustily and instructed everyone to practice this tricky maneuver, dance on ye courtly swains !”

“Mike Foley ran this joint on the waterfront. It is said that he died right in the middle of his beer. His wife Jessie finished it for him. She had a face like a bucket of mud and refused to talk, unless I got her drunk. She lived at the Hotel California, before the Hippies got it. Then suddenly, somebody hit me from behind with a blackjack and I slipped into a dark pool under me. Then I was half conscious and was taken to a place I have never been. Somebody made a pin cushion out of my arm. They shot me up to make me talk or to make me quiet. But soon after, I woke up ! The window was open, but it was too smoky to see clearly. I looked around and it appeared that I was caught in a giant web which a thousand spiders had woven; I then wondered how they all got to work together. I looked at my hand and worked my fingers; they appeared to be bananas moving. I had been slapped around, choked almost to death and shot up so hard, that I felt as crazy as waltzing mice. I said to myself: you’re a tough guy ~ Let’s see you do something really hard; like putting on your own pants without falling on your face.”

“What is the good of kissing a girl, if she doesn’t feel it.” (Keep this thought uppermost in your subconscious mind; which is the tool of Lord Yamaraja, the Lord of Death and he can witness you making love to a dead body and it will not look good for you. It is not considered divine or valid, especially since Lord Yamaraja can fast forward your subconscious mind and behold your perversion. Spiritually, the Soul is the real person (after all gross and subtle bodies are relinquished). Of Course, Lord Yama knows this, for he is a spiritually educated person and a teacher with the suma cum laude of being a mahajana or the point of transcendence for all Disciplic Successions. He told me personally that the Vaishnava & the Shivite Disciplic Successions meet in him. Thus, to be correct; as a matter of etiquette; you must pay obeisances to Lord Shiva (the destroyer) Lord Yama (the missing link) and Lord Vishnu (the maintainer) ~

Song of the Guru
Say, it’s only a paper moon, sailing over a cardboard sea; but it wouldn’t be make-believe, if you believed in me. Yes, it’s only a canvas sky, hanging over a muslin tree; but it wouldn’t be make-believe, if you believed in me. Without your love, it’s a honky-tonk parade. Without your love, it’s a melody played, in a penny arcade. It’s a Barnum & Bailey world, just as phony as it can be; but it wouldn’t be make-believe, if you believed in me. Billy Rose ~ 1933

Love has its own particular point of view : It sees everything larger than life. Nothing is too ornate, too fanciful for a love of drama; because love demands the theatrical, a love for acting out a role. Gradually, it begins to transform your life; turning the grotesque into something simple and playful. Love gives the innocent child, the illusion of seeing what he wishes to see in people; without it, we see too much of what is disagreeable. Passage of the Lady Anne in The Twilight Zone

“The Twilight Zone was a series of TV that involves a well told story. A story with twists and turns, as well as the irony of life. It is a unique idea in entertainment; for its question is what if and this stretches our mind. It makes us think and consider possibilities; and best of all, it always has a surprise ending.” G. Julian Walker

“Every child must have chores; it teaches them that life has order and purpose. It gives a reward for sweat honestly given and mixes new people in your life who will admire you for your simple life of virtue.” Aunt T in The Twilight Zone

The Jackson Square Sermon in New Orleans
Preacher, you say you are self-ordained and self-baptized; well I don’t recognize pastors that are not trained in the authorized way. I say, you are a preacher by illusion and hallucination. In the second place, I don’t respect you, because your clothes are dirty and there’s the smell of cheap wine about you. Now, you’re cursing me, but your God is not the True God. The True God won’t hear you, because you’re no friend of God or Man. (Jumping up and down around crowds of people and screaming insults) A True Representative of God does not holler hate to the world. That’s because God is Love. God is Mercy and Forgiveness. Try preaching that sometimes, Mr. Preacher. Teach people to love, not hate. Preach the Good Book; which is the book of the Absolute Truth

The Albino Strain from My Friend Flicka
In running a ranch here, our lot is to have many bills and less & less money to pay them with. A horse ranch has got to encourage good blood lines in horses; recognizing that blood lines are also inherited. That’s why I’m disgusted with the Albino Strain. They got a crazy streak in them. There’s no sense in selling them; I wouldn’t get back the cost of raising them, not for what anyone would offer. A dark side of my mind wants to shoot them and I would too; if they weren’t so dog-gone fast ! Preston Foster

Horses Have a Language All their Own
Horses know everything you’re saying to them; not with the labels called words, but by intuition. They rear us with terror and we can certainly feel their rage. We must feel the emotion of longing and hunger. They talk to you with a winny, a stamp or the flick of their ears, and if you try to understand their language; they’ll try to understand yours.
My Friend Flicka ~ 1943

Inside Secrets of Love from My Friend Flicka
Love is just a way of putting away fear for an animal. If a person or an animal feels love; it’s the same as finding safety. Love is comfort. It is friendly and helpful. Everyone longs for love and Flicka has found it, if she rejects this – then she’s loco !

Thank You, Sir : Some people see strange as evil; so tell no one that I am strange;

Quotations from Hearts in Atlantis
I don’t know everything, but what I do know is that when I touch people, a special window opens up to me and I see into their lives. I then know things about them, secret things and yet I am afraid to reveal them; for there may be a penalty. Some think it is a gift; I see it as a burden. Yes, it’s a valuable thing, but sometimes dangerous. And this I also know; we’re all passing through, kiddo, just passing through. Anthony Hopkins
You know, when you’re young you have moments of such happiness. You think you’re living in a magical place; like Atlantis must have been. Then we grow up and hearts are broken in two. Anthony Hopkins

The Heaven Sermon from the movie Heaven is For Real ~ 2014
Is Heaven real ? I believe that God can show you Heaven and by extension, I believe that modern miracles happen every day -as sure as- we worship a living God. Now, if Heaven is for real; wouldn’t we be leading different lives ? Would We ? Really ? Haven’t we already seen a glimpse of Heaven in the first cry of a baby, of the courage of a friend, of the hands of a caring doctor or nurse. Haven’t we felt Heaven, in the love of a mother, father, aunt, uncle, grandpa or grandma ? Haven’t we, so often felt Heaven when we are given a second chance. And during a crisis, have we mistrusted Heaven and instead chose the Hell of hate and fear. And so, I ask again ~ Is Heaven Real beyond all fairy tales. The answer is Yes, I believe it. (If there are rewards for being good and penalties for doing bad in this world; why can’t there be a justice in other worlds ?) Rationally, we can say : What we believe, changes how we perceive the world. But, mistrust in a happy ending can make you a cynic. But God is Love and calls to your heart for a happy ending. Can we take this leap of faith ? Can we admit to ourselves that we all need love and want it to be returned ? Ten thousand times have I mechanically repeated the prayer that His Will Be Done, in Heaven as it is on Earth, but not believe it in my heart. My son says he saw Heaven and met Jesus ! Jesus, a name that creates so much hope in people and so much mistrust in others. How can we believe something so incredible in a little boy or a preacher if we haven’t experienced it.
I believe that the vision of a holy man is not ordinary; it is not the same as the vision of the common man. Here is my prayer : God crush my pride and open up my heart to love. Now, all that is needed is someone to share it with; it’s something you can’t do alone, love needs other people. And so I appeal to all of you who understand the need for love to create Heaven on Earth, by coming up here and giving me a hug ! Amen

Suddenly, the healer appears and leads you to a dimensional gate in the mind and gently coaxes the mind back to the body and back to the hospital. Welcome Back ! Says the good doctor; you have come back to a place of hope and happiness; a place of love and light. It is a time of second chances and a little more time to love in this life.

The Ninth Passageway (Astral Super-Highway)
This is the major route for galactic commercial and visitation travel (Wormhole Highway to the Stars & Planets, called Hyper-Space in Star Wars). From the outer fringe of the galaxy to the central stars nearest to Alcyone, the central sun (in Orion) ~ It is the galactic version of the ancient Silk Road that traversed Asia from Central China to Europe. This was the trade route that Marco Polo trod in his famous travels recorded in his book. It was also the route that the young Jesus was believed to have traveled in his pilgrimage to India. (The theory is that Jesus was taught the fundamentals of spiritual life by The Three Wise Men, who were his initiating gurus. They must have taught him that India is the Real Holy Land, because God has visited there since ancient times, not Jerusalem). Len Kasten in his book Alien World Order

That you’re an angel and I’m in Heaven
It’s wonderful to know that you love me
It’s glorious to feel I’m a part of all that I see and share happiness.
Isn’t it marvelous how lovely, love can be
Who would imagine that I’d be allowed through the doorway of Heaven
I’m drifting high on a cloud and you’re an angel and I’m in Heaven
It’s wonderful to feel your lips divine combine with mine forevermore
It’s wonderful to know that you love me. ~ From the French Comedy The Fairy

“Edgar Rice Burroughs, like H.G. Wells, was a prophet and appeared to have a similarly powerful crystal ball. According to American National Biography Online: ‘Burroughs predicted the invention of the radar, sonar, television, tele-type, radio compass, the automatic pilot, homing devices on bombs and torpedoes, genetic clones, living organ transplants, anti-gravity propulsion and many other concepts deemed totally fantastic in his time.” from the best-selling book Alien World Order by Len Kasten

“There are two dimensions in Space Travel that have to be adjusted to be efficient.
One is called three-dimensional space or outer space, an ethereal realm around planets and stars. The other dimension is called Universal Space, where there is no physical presence of matter. It is the ‘breath of the great void’ as yet unchanged or degraded to the world of physical things. Some might refer to it as ‘hyper-space’ or the fourth
dimension. For real 3-D Space, Thruster Jets are used by Star Ships, much like our rockets today. However, instead of using solid or liquid fuels to provide the push, there are light or electrical particles (ion propulsion) which increase thrusting power exponentially. The travel through Universal Space uses wormholes for deep space travel. It is an entry point to a wormhole and then you could cover millions of miles through the time domain instantaneously. Just like in Star Wars in Science Fiction; there are Star Ships in real life, that have been around for millions of years in other Star Systems. To travel through Universal Space, you generate an electro-gravitational force to pull a point in distant space, which could be millions of miles away in terms of Real Space, to the ship. The journey through hyperspace has to be carefully navigated and is limited to distances that have no obstructions.” Alien World Order by Len Kasten

Quotations from Kim ~ A movie about ancient India
Prologue: To the government of India and to his highness, the maharaja of Jaipur and his highness, the maharaja of Bundi; we express our deep appreciation for the facilities afforded us in the filming of this picture, filmed in India. (Based on the novel by Rudyard Kipling 1865 -1936, who chose to stay in India for his entire life.) Several silent movies were written by Kipling in India, including The Vampire, 1910 and The Maid of Mandalay, 1913. Another famous Kipling movie: The Man Who Would Be King, 1975 was a great success. Bundi is the last stronghold of feudal India. The ancient city of Jaipur has multiple palaces for the poor and homeless. The Maharaja of Jaipur was so kind that he gave everyone a home in his kingdom. India is the land of the Taj Mahal and Delhi, the ancient capital of India. Delhi has been called The City of Temples. Bombay is the 2nd largest city in India, famous for The Hanging Gardens of Bombay.

The Grand Trunk Road is a broad dirt path running across India for 1500 miles. Such a river of life exists nowhere else in the world. They walk in silence, the llama, as usual, deep in meditation. There are new sights at ever stride. The drum and fife slowly are heard as the marriage procession mingles with the laughing dancing girls, as they journey to a village wedding. Of the 5 million holy men in India, none are more starling than the Sadhus with their weird antics. Kim’s eyes were bright, drinking in the sights of this endless highway. Kim and his llama rubbed elbows with all humanity. From the lowly beggar to the maharaja, they walk the grand trunk road in lordly state. Kim

Editorial Comment on the movie Beach Red ~ 1967
This movie is a revolutionary movie, for it gives a view of war from both the American and the Japanese viewpoint in WWII. Filmed in the Philippines; it is unlike all movies before it in portraying each soldier as a dreamer, dreaming of his civilian life. The conclusion, that the reason for an American victory is because of massive amount of soldiers with unlimited ammunition and adaptable strategies. On the other hand, the Japanese supply ships were defeated at the Battle of Midway and thus the Japanese had no reinforcements or availability to ammunition.

Your Guardian Angel’s Song of Encouragement ~ Song Lyrics
I’ll be your candle on the water. My love for you will always burn. I know you’re lost and drifting, but with my help, the clouds will be lifting. Don’t give up; you have somewhere to turn and someone to turn to. I’ll be your candle on the water ’til every wave is warm and bright. My Soul is there beside you; let this candle guide you. Soon you’ll see a golden stream of light. A cold and friendless tide has found you; don’t let the stormy darkness pull you down. I’ll paint a ray of hope around you, circling in the air
lighted by a prayer. I’ll be your candle on the water, this flame inside of me will grow. Keep holding on; you’ll make it, here’s my hand, so take it. Look for me, reaching out to show you the Lord’s Smiling Face, sure as the rivers flow, do-not fear, I’ll never forget you or let you go. I’ll surely let you know. (Pete’s Dragon)

There’s Room for Everyone in This World ~ Pete’s Dragon
There’s room for everyone in this world, if everyone makes some room
Won’t you move over and share this world; everyone make some room
Even a dragon deserves a place, a wide open space; with no reigns and no chains
He just wants to play games and dance with you; why don’t you give him a chance
to sing his song; he only wants to belong.
There’s room for everyone in this world; will everyone make some room
Spread out and look for pure air and water. Fly on his back and there’ll be an adventure
real soon ~ Rock him ~ Ride him ~ and light up beside him; you’ll see how quickly you’ll blend. A dragon is just one more stranger in search of a friend.
From an ant to a bird to a buffalo heard, let them walk and fly and roam. Step aside and let them live; it’s so simple to give some room; like us they just need a home.
There’s room for everyone in this world, back up and make some room. Just think how far the ocean goes and how the whirling wind blows ~ shore to shore, all the way from door to door. Think of all the valleys and mountain tops; this earth never stops ~ so deep, so high, with miles of sky. We’re all a part, so give them a chance to rise up and dance. There’s room for everyone in this world, will everyone make some room; Love given freely can spare this world, let friendly feelings bloom. Just give an inch, give a foot or give a yard; let’s all make sure that everyone has a place where they can stay, just the way God planned it, just the way God planned. (As sung by Helen Reddy)

“Women become very foolish when they see their boyfriend kissing another woman; but a brotherly kiss or a kissing cousin kiss should not be exaggerated and is no reason to be jealous.

Historians of Ancient History Speak of Christianity
By any conceivable account, Christianity represents one of the great success stories of history. Despite these triumphs, the story of Christianity can be strangely depressing, often amounting to a tale of unsavory compromises with tyranny, combined with vicious suppression of rivals. The secret strangeness is that throughout history; Christ’s essential teachings of love and forgiveness were frequently neglected or ignored.

Was Lemuria The Garden of Eden?
Few researchers have dedicated their lives to their investigations as much as James Churchward, who has written 3 books from his 50 years of researching Mu, the lost continent. The ancient Naacal records researched by Churchward and the Tibetan manuscripts analyzed by Cerve give related stories about the continent of Mu (which could possibly be Pangea, the first conglomeration of continents). Both accounts corroborate the archaeological and geological evidence. Churchward placed Lemuria in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Evidence shows it extended north beyond Hawaii, to the south, as far as Fiji and the South Sea Islands; and then to the east, slightly beyond Easter Island. It ranged 5000 miles east to west and three thousand miles north to south. Mu was composed of three land masses, separated by narrow channels or seas. The translated writings describe Mu as beautiful, mostly tropical and with low rolling hills, shaded by lush vegetation. Vast plains covered Lemuria, with rich grazing lands and tilled fields, when it was populated. No mountain ranges were found on Mu, until the latter part of its existence. Both the Troyana and the Codex Cortesiamus refer to Mu as the land of ridges on earth. There were many broad, slow moving rivers, meandering through the rolling hills and plains. Palm trees intermingled with numerous ferns, which lined the shores of both rivers and oceans. Many of the shallow lakes were surrounded by sacred lotus flowers, butterflies, hummingbirds, crickets and locusts. Also inhabiting this paradise were mastodons and elephants. There were many birds and flowers. Both Churchward and Cerve believed that at the heart of Lemuria was the ancient location of the Garden of Eden. ~~from the best-selling book of Robert Siblerud In the Beginning

Quotations from Degas and the Dancer
I hate it when people look over my shoulder and try to judge what I draw.
“For an artist, being as ugly as a monkey is fascinating, because such a face is strikingly interesting.” Edgar Degas
I love children, for like me, they refrain from judging art, because ~ like me ~ they claim to know nothing of art. This kind of innocence is highly prized by me, not jaded critics. Edgar Degas
Making mistakes is how we learn. Artists have to forgive themselves for their mistakes, for that’s the way to become a master.
Critics try to discourage art, but words on a page are a lot easier to do than art on a canvas. Words can be just mundane, but art can be multi=dimensional. It can turn an ordinary woman into a goddess.
A sculpture is closer to reality than a painting; especially when it’s a real person, then it is life itself in meditation. Extrapolated from Degas and the Dancer

“You shall know them by their fruits.” Jesus Christ (Mathew 7.16)

Here are the fruits of Jehovah in the Old Testament: Genocide, Slavery, Thievery and Murder of his own priests. Since there is no righteousness in these things, he cannot be said to be Devine. That is why Jesus declared to the High Priests of the Pharisee Jews: Your God Jehovah is not God, but only the Devil. John 8.44 Jesus also preached that His Father’s Law is The Ten Commandments and are not to be changed by The evil Laws of Moses, which he defied. (John 8.3-11) Only hypocrites and liars give noble sounding excuses for this evil. Such “religious” people are a traitor to their Conscience and a traitor to their religion.

Tristan: There are other things besides love to live for; things like honor and duty. James Franco as Tristan
Isolde: But Tristan, they are not life; they are only the shadows of life and in the end are empty ones, without love. For, Love is made by God; ignore it and you will suffer like you cannot imagine. Sophia Myles as Isolde

“Tristan was declared slain after the battle of Britain and Ireland. He was floated out on a raft and shot with flaming arrows. But Divine Providence had a greater plan for him, because he arrived on the beach of Ireland, where a great healer rescued him and brought him back to life with herbs. Isolde brought him back from the brink of death to a new life. After 2 months, Tristan rode into his town and was hailed as a God, for he survived the Grand Warrior Funeral Ceremony. When his family saw that Tristan was alive, they asked him how he came back to life just like Jesus of Nazareth. Tristan replied that he was Resurrected and Delivered by the Hand of God.

At Least you can be “Curiously Interesting”
According to the guru; the reason we have come to this world is that, at some time in our remote Past; we rejected the idea of being God’s Servant. Instead, we want to know what it feels like to be God ourselves. Thus, we come to a world where we can Lord it over the material energy and also the animals. From the Lord’s point of view (and the Demi-gods) we are merely actors playing God, but we are not the real God.

A Study of Monsters by Anne McLeod (with purports by the editor)
A monster is a distinctive creature. It may be terrifying, deadly or just bad. It could be threatening or just playfully weird. As far as Hollywood is concerned; a monster is something that gives us a serious case of the creepy=crawlies, whether it occurs in our minds or something that is stalking us nearby. For many of us, a monster is an animal that is threatening to kill us; to others, it may be beneficent. The mystery of monsters is that, the very features that startle and scare us, also can be exciting and fascinating. (Thus, it could be a cure for boredom) Like the eyes of the Ai-Ai Fish of Madagascar or the longest centipede in the world; which is much longer than that magazine you are ready to kill it with ! Some monsters are real and some are imaginary. In order to discern the real situation; we will study the facts and the statistics for all monster candidates. The Chameleon could be considered a monster; it changes color and shoots out a long tongue that sucks-small insects into his mouth fast, but that’s only a monster to the insects. The Japanese have always had a unique understanding of monsters; when the puffer fish began killing divers and seamen; they happily went out hunting them, killing most of them and then feasting on them. (After all, they’re only fish)
Many people see the spider as a monster, but only if it is poisonous or huge. Actually, some spiders are as big as a dinner plate; and yet the bite cannot kill any adult, even if provoked. Generally, our fear of Arachnids is only in our own heads (unless you’re facing an army of angry brown recluse spiders). Psychologists say that some monsters are lurking only in our sub-conscious mind, due to something we’ve experienced in ancient times or in a former life. This requires a belief in reincarnation. (in the original teaching of Jesus, He told his Disciples “You Could be Gods !” ~in your next birth !) The ancient Greeks and Egyptians had strange hybrid combinations of animals as monster Gods. (This idea was demonstrated rather dramatically in the ground-breaking movie Jason and the Arganauts, when a giant scorpion came to attack them ! This inspired all the science fiction movies of the Fifties. They just had to blow up any animal and project it on the screen. They said it was caused by Atomic Testing. Strangely enough, a scorpion can withstand radiation 200 times more than humans ! They were the only animals that survived the Atomic Bomb ! Thus, the popularity of Godzilla and King Kong was invented by Hollywood.) It could be that any animal could be considered a monster under certain conditions, like the Vampire Bat, which comes out at night to feed on blood. (The Vampire Bat became an empowered pet & Changeling Monster of Dracula- who was evil and abhorred the cross. Dracula was a real person in
ancient days, famous for his evil. He was called Vlad, The Impaler, but he never had any pet bat. Similarly, The Holy Ghost has an empowered pet too who is a changeling for God, It is a Dove ! Giant Lizards were seen as monsters in the Fifties, sci-fi fad. The Earth vs The Flying Saucers is a very good one). In real life, there are feared monsters. There is no doubt that the Komodo Dragon is a monster. He can kill a human and eat him within an hour. The Gila Monster has venom that can kill 2 men. The biggest reptiles were the Dinosaurs of ancient days. (The idea of Dinosaurs as monsters in our time was presented with great success by the movie Jurassic Park. Thus fire-breathing dragons came to life among us !) The ancient blood of Beastures depicts monsters for Christianity, which includes gargoyles and slithering snakes. The behavior of the King Cobra of India is actually based on hypnotism; if you don’t know the way of the snake charmer, you will not survive the bite of this deadly snake. A snake’s locomotion looks impossible and their renewal seems improbable, but their bite is a real danger. Along with such deadly killers as the Coral Snake and the Rattlesnake; they kill 30, 000 to 40, 00 people annually. Just to be fair, it should be noted that there are thousands of non-toxic and harmless snakes; just as there are thousands of non-toxic mushrooms to eat. So, you have to study under a teacher to discern, which mushroom to eat and which snake to trust. The Soft-Scale Viper is considered the deadliest of all snakes and carries enough venom to kill 8 people, but even reptiles & snakes have their enemies. The Hyena is a strange hybrid of wild dog and cat. It is one the most feared of all wild creatures, they usually were feared by lions and tigers; for they generally outnumber them in their pacts by 6 to one. The Hyena seems like a creature from ancient times because its laugh is eerie and its eyes glow at night, especially by fire-light. The Spotted Hyena is the most aggressive and in ancient times, it is said that, witches rode on them at night. The Hyena’s jaws are very powerful and are capable of crushing human bones and consuming them, just like the komodo dragon. In Africa, you can hear this scavenger punctuate the night with terror. It’s no wonder that they are afraid at night in Africa.
In ancient times, the oceans were considered the true home of the monsters, which includes the Giant Squid and Giant Octopus – as well as, evil mermaids. This brings to mind the Loch Ness Monster, which many believe is real, as was also reported in Nova Scotia and Greenland. The theory is that the deeper you go, the more likely it is that you will encounter these monsters. Big Foot is considered a Beneficent Monster. He is known as Yeti in Tibet and Yahweh in Australia. The legend is that he has the unusual habit of running away faster than people can see him. The evidence in America is weak.
A new shark was discovered in the 60s ! (Hence the popularity of the movie Jaws) However sensationalized in Hollywood, factually only 50 people die of sharks annually and only 3 people die per year from a Grizzly Bear. Among doctors, the greatest monster would be the mosquito, which kills 1 person every 10 seconds in Africa, because of diseases it carries, like malaria, etc. (If you get a haunted house movie, you know that danger is lurking everywhere, but in real life, the hunter sometimes becomes
the hunted and we remain the haunted) With an insatiable appetite for horror movies –Hollywood is ready to conjure up even more terrible creatures these days. Some of the aliens of Science Fiction look remarkably like us, but some do-not. Is it really fiction or fact ? The creature known as the Chuba Cabra in Central America is said to be pets left behind by aliens, who left no instructions for their care or feeding. Thus, we continue our love-hate relationship with monsters, even if we shudder or squirm; we cannot turn away. As long as evolution continues to fire our imagination; we will behold huge, freakish or fierce monsters. But the ultimate monster is born inside the feverish mind of Man; home of the impossible monster. DVD called Monsters

Ancient Mesopotamia
Oh, Hi ! I was just looking through the Bible. Have you ever wondered where civilization first began. You may not know it, but the Bible is full of clues for archaeologists and historians of ancient history, that lead us to the very beginning of civilization. By the way, I’m Arizona Smith. Archaeology means the study of beginnings, so that’s my job. My job includes the search for clues in different countries; sometimes the clues are buried really deep. In ancient Mesopotamia, that’s Greek for the land between two rivers; there are rivers called the Tigris and the Euphrates and in Genesis it is said that they flowed from the Garden of Eden. About 150 years ago, around 1889; they began to dig where the Bible said the beginning was and uncovered the ancient city of Nipur. But to our surprise; their records – called canneoform described another city that was even earlier. It was the lost city of Ur. In the Bible, Ur was described as the birthplace of Abraham. Dr. Williams, a Christian Archaeologist came to prove the Bible correct. It took him 12 years in sweltering desert heat, but he finally discovered that ancient city: Ur of Sumeria; thus proving the Bible correct. In the old tombs of Ur, they found much valuable jewelry. Sumeria is the world’s oldest civilization. The Sumerians founded the first educational system, and the first irrigation system. In 3000 B.C. Ur was thriving. The Sumerians had 3000 Gods and a temple called a Ziggurat to worship them. In ancient times, Ur had a population of 30,000 people. Most of their houses were made of thatch (mud, straw and sticks- heated in the hot sun). They made the first bread, which was actually date-bread. The first govern-ment was a council of elders. They were good inventors; they invented the wheel for pottery and later invented the wheel for travel. The first plow was made of bronze and pulled by an ox. They invented the water-wheel and they were the first to use the Arch in architecture, which was widely copied by the Romans, at a much later time. They invented writing on their tablets. Scribes were the first historians. They also told stories and poems. Later civilizations used all these gifts and adapted them to their civilization. Sumer was lost to a civil war over water rights during a drought. The same thing can happen to America when petrol becomes scarce. The Discovery Channel

The Black Hole of History
For several centuries, the Mycenian Era descended into a time called “The Dark Ages.” It’s not like someone turned the lights out; we just have very few clues from this period. It’s kind of like a Black Hole in History. But think about it; isn’t it amazing how much we know about the Menoans and Mycenians (who conquered them after a disastrous earthquake with no historical records left behind ?) It took some pretty good detective work to piece together all the clues and form a picture of the first civilizations in Europe; detective work that is still going on today.

What Time is it ?
It’s hard to tell what time it is; the hour hand and the minute hand are not on speaking terms with each other, for the minute hand has fallen in love with the second hand. But there is hope, because it is their fate to be in harmony again when they both are pointing together to 12 oclock. Samuel Goldwyn presents Hans Christian Andersen

Protecting Your Assets~ a sermon by G. Julian Walker
Dear Souls: Riches and valuable assets can be material things, but can be used in the service of the Lord. Your body is a gift from the God of Love and Generosity. In order to respect these assets; you must protect these gifts from thieves and plunders. Thus, there are eyelids on the eyes to protect them; never throw hard-cold water into your open eyes, because you will permanently injure your eyes. Also, you must not listen closely to loud music or you will injure your ears permanently. Also, do not smell something deeply, that will give you an allergy. Never let children wander alone through bad areas of the city or wild, unexplored forest alone in a storm. They must get permission, even with an adult. By extension, you must also protect your mind, steering it away from evil thoughts. There is an evil spirit trying to corrupt you, even if you are not willing. You must control your mind with intelligence and judge by your conscience. It is rightly said: “Let your conscience be your guide.” That is called yoga. The masculine test of truth is with the intelligence and the female test of truth is intuition from the heart. You must not allow the destruction of the gifts of God, like seeing, hearing, and smelling. You must instruct children, lovers, friends and family. It is also said: “We protect what we love.” We should honor these gifts and all gifts of beloved friends and family. Always be thankful to God for them. Thus, this life is a life of responsibility and there is proper etiquette involved also. Some may say that it is also considered God-Conscious-ness for the Enlightened. (Selah)

The Rules and Guidelines for Prayer
Prayer involves a compact or a covenant between two people: You and God. This means that the prayer pleader has the right to ask, because God is a democratic person who gives you rights. The first right of God is that He has the right to refuse your prayer, probably for good reasons, like it may be unfair to someone else. But God also has the right to grant your desire in a way that you didn’t expect or understand. Your desire is very important to The Lord, but if your desire gets too intense and is long lasting; you are violating God’s right to intervene righteously. Thus, you need to detach yourself from the prayer and be patient. To help you detach yourself, God has attached a slogan or mantra: “Let Go and Let God!” Detachment for material things is one of the disciplines of yoga. Thus the disciple is called upon to show detachment from material things and people and show attachment for spiritual things and people. Your guide to this is the Guru or Spiritual Master. Jesus is a bona-fide Guru, because he started a disciplic succession to preserve his teachings without changing them. The Disciplic Succession of Jesus, the Christ is called The Desposni. His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami says “Everyone in this world is thinking: How do I become a master ? But that is mundane consciousness. In Spirituality; you are not Master. You are Servant. Not an ordinary servant, but a servant of eternal love.” If the pleader wants something that he is not eligible for, even by Grace; the pleader must rethink his prayer and if he believes in his heart that he should have it ~ then he is entitled to make a motion in The Mystical Courts of God called Ekadashi ! Ekadashi is like Habeas Corpus or an exception that should be made. Ekadashi is a Goddess, who is the gatekeeper to the powers of the Soul and the Super-Soul, the Lord in the heart. It is enacted by fasting. Jesus says that fasting and prayer is the most powerful thing (Mathew 17.20). Ekadashi arrives on the 11th Day of the waning or the waxing of the moon. The sun is the left eye of God and represents work, obligation, duty. The moon is the right eye and represents vacation, free-time, Love and Laughter. If you fast

Without food or water; you are entitled to a miracle! If you fast this way for 3 Ekadashis and link it by water only fasting; it is called Ekadashi Linking and it is most powerful. It takes 40 days & nights and you are entitled to a fountain of miracles. This is how Jesus got all his powers. Then the Devil comes to tempt you; this is part of the testing process. Jesus passed this test when he said, “Devil get thee, behind me.” There is a proviso in Ekadashi, that you may assign the merit you received in the fasting to someone else who needs it worse than you. Thus Satan asked Jesus to surrender to him (or assign his fasting merit to him) and he would give Jesus many favors (benedictions) like riches and power. A sincere disciple or Bhakti who is bound by the loyalty of love puts The Lord first, even the guru is second and The Holy Ghost (Yamaraja) is third. The Trinity is thus taught also by Jesus; and thus you become a member in God’s Club. a transcendental relationship with The Lord & His Consort (the female part of divinity). Then and there, you are an eternal servant of The Lord again and eternity is added to your relationships. How wonderful. Selah and Amen

American Legends of the Pioneers
There are 4 main legends of America’s early history: They were John Henry, a super-human railroad worker, Paul Bunyan, a super-human lumberjack and Casey Jones, a super-human railroad engineer. The last one is of special interest to me: Johnny Appleseed, who taught pioneers and Indians how to be farmers. Here is what James Earl Jones said about him. “John Chapman, who became known as Johnny Appleseed was just a barefoot boy when America celebrated its Independence in 1776. In 1806, as the legend goes he was visited by his guardian angel, who directed him to go out west and plant fruit trees. And so he grew up a bearded vegetarian, who wore a coffee sack and a 10 pot hat (for cooking and beverages around the campfire at night). He lived by his own rules and killed no animals. He loved the earth and believed that all men were brothers. Using his legendary green thumb, he taught people how to feed hungry pioneers by planting fruits and vegetables. Johnny was proof that you didn’t need strength or great size to be a legend, you just have to do great deeds.” Of course, Indians knew how to survive on mushrooms, roots, berries and herbs. He taught people the value of being a farmer and he hiked all over America preaching his gospel of Christianity following in the example of Jesus Christ, also a vegetarian. Johnny Apple-seed became known as a saintly farmer. He proved that the Hunter Method of Survival was not the only option. Although some historians see him as only planting apples, others see him growing corn, vegetables and beans, as well as many other types of fruit trees. He was a Pure Christian and taught that you don’t need to kill animals in the Wild West to survive. The lesson of Jesus was, that if you couldn’t be a complete vegetarian, then go catch some fish, for no curses come from them; however many curses come

from killing the higher animals, like cows, bulls, horses and pigs. It is said that he converted many Indians to this idea. Johnny’s pastime of hiking across America was a
tradition that was followed by John Muir. Johnny travelled all over America without even a weapon. Any wild animal that he met, he would talk kindly to them and won them over with the charm of his smiling, laughing and praying. The animals knew that he represented a peace between man and animal. Some say he had a pet skunk that he travelled with ! Johnny Appleseed walked across America planting fruit trees for 40 years, planting fruit trees wherever he found fertile ground which amounted to 100 thou-sand square miles and thus he became a legend and a role model for many a pioneer. The legend concludes with the death of Johnny Appleseed, who was personally escorted to heaven by his guardian angel. It is said that Johnny would not go, until his angel promised him he could plant fruit trees in heaven too. Here is the Thanksgiving Song of Johnny Appleseed: The Lord is good to me and so I thank the Lord; for giving me the things I need, like sun and rain and apple seeds, yes – He is good to me. I owe the Lord so much, for everything. I’m certain because, I can see that if it wasn’t for Him; there’d be no fruit on the limbs. Oh, here, in the Wilderness, where there’s blue sky; I can do as I please, singing every day to my feathered friends and humming with the bees. I wake up every day as happy as can be, the Lord is good to me. Editor

“A forward looking strategy occurred quite surprisingly in antiquity. The Phoenicians opened up maritime trade into the cities around the Mediterranean Sea, while the Greeks opened up trade around the Black Sea. A Russian historian Karl Kautsky commented on this amazing jump forward: “Land based commerce did not allow such wide sweeps as sea based commerce, although, trading by sea presupposes a more advanced technology, especially in shipbuilding.” This involved bigger ships and more sailors, with different sized sails, as well as – net & tackle loading and unloading apparatus.

No period in Chicago’s history is more violent than the years of prohibition. It is a story of the rise and fall of bootleggers and gangster-empires; all written in blood and bullets. In 1932, there were 365 murders in Chicago; one for every day in the year. In December of that year, 8 policemen were shot down dead, in the line of duty. 1948

And in 1818, a brave band of French Officers and their families started their settlement in Denoupolis. Dejected and dispirited, they clung to their rich uniforms as reminders of their former glory. ~~ A John Wayne Production 1949

Don’t Over-do it

“Some men think that they got everything figured out and they proclaim a false kind of unity by stating: Men are just like Women. Yes, but Women are not just like Men.
They don’t talk like men and they don’t behave like men.

For instance, when a woman’s in love, she’s helpless to do anything about it, until the man opens his heart to her. Oh, of course, she can scheme and contrive, to make him declare himself; but the initiative is really with him, and that’s just one point for my case.” Maureen O’Hara in Immortal Sergeant

W.W.II ~ 1942
Anytime now, all hell is gonna break loose; just as fast as they can bring the big guns out. If you’re wondering what’s happening here in the Philippines in this, the Great War; it’s a world revolution – a war to the death. It’s kind of serious and yet so, so simple. In this war, we are all fighting for the same thing: Our Very Lives. Cry Havoc

The Divinity of Mathematics
In Divine Mathematics 1+1 = 1 and 1-1 also equals 1.”
Swami Prabhupada’s Purport: Mundane Mathematics only applies to this dimension and this world; the Lord’s Mathematics is multi-dimensional and applies to all worlds. In other words, The Lord can replicate himself and still remain complete. He can appear from the mind and also disappear. You cannot limit the Lord by your mundane limits or expectations.
My Comments: As we grow older and older still, the probability of dying increases. Everyone around you, as well as, you-yourself secretly knows that your time is coming and the clock is ticking. The Lord of Death also notices and finally you have to warm up to the idea and prepare for it. However, death is not all that bad, sometimes it’s a relief.
Next, we address percentages: Blackmail and Bluffing has a poetic relationship and finally reveals percentages both increasing and decreasing based on circumstances and verbiage. The more you consider either, the more confusing it becomes. However, miracles happen, even if you don’t expect them to, but it is most satisfying when there doesn’t seem to be any hope. Because, miracles are intimately related to The Lord and His Energies, many miracles can happen; sometimes depending on the previous miracle!
G. Julian Walker

More Percentages
Rumors are generally concentrating on the baser part of human nature; therefore an intelligent person should not give it more credence than it deserves, some say 50%.
Because I am an optimist; I only give it 30%. An exception might be the rumor of murder, with good reason, good motive and circumstances; it might increase to 70%. In consideration of such a thing; I think, it’s time you buy a gun and hide a throwing dagger

“Comparisons of women and flowers goes all the way back to the 19th Century.

Oh, the Flies in Here are Terrible
Why do the people of America have a prejudice in their newspapers against their President in Office. They overlook his righteous legislation and spotlight some possible offense, almost to the point of gossip. Americans weren’t always like this; President Lincoln was treated like a God in the North. The people of England never chastise their Royalty harshly or even the Parliament. No, they have too much Class & Good Manners (Savoir Faire ~ you know). The Old American Adage applies: “The Honey-Bee goes for the Honey; but the house-fly goes for the Crap!” G. Julian Walker

The Call of the Wild
Have you ever wandered in the wilderness, through sage-brush desolation. The bunch-grass levels where the cattle graze? Have you ever whistled bits of rag-time at the end of all creation and yearned to know the secrets of the desert’s little ways? Have you camped upon the foothills and galloped over the wide ranges? Have you roamed the arid sun-lands through and through? Have you chummed up with the mesa? Do you know its moods and changes? Then listen to the Wild ~~ it’s calling you.

The Questions Transcendental
Since the beginning, Man has looked into the awesome reaches of Infinity and asked the eternal questions: What is Time? What is Space? What is Life? What is Death?
Through a hundred civilizations, philosophers and scientists have come with possible answers, but the bewilderment remains; and finally it comes down to each human soul to find out these secrets by his own fate and his own mind. (But some rare souls are lucky enough to find a bona-fide guru, by The Lord’s Grace) Introduction to Portrait of Jennie

Quotations from Portrait of Jennie
This is a film about the life of a modern portrait artist, full of mystery and meta-physical questions, as well as meditations of life reflected in people’s faces. Also, behind these faces are landscapes at the same time.
There ought to be a timeless quality about a woman that transcends time, both Past and Present. This kind of meditation happens daily in the museums and makes a portrait very popular, like for instance, the Mona-Lisa.
“Where I come from nobody knows and where I’m going, anything goes.” Joseph Cotton “No-one knows more about love than an old maid” Ethel Barrymore

Courtship Games: In the business of courtship, there is a game of push and pull: Man: Where do I stand now? (Female: After a strange night of meditative yearning; I have concluded that I’m very fond of you) I do admire your charming personality and your colorful fashionable clothes. Your wavy, silky hair sends waves of passion into my mind which are growing stronger all the time. (When I look at you, I see fire in your eyes and it ignites my passion) I notice your bodily clues of magnetic surges. I ~ I ~ think I love you ! (After due meditation; I love you too). Extrapolated from –Portrait of Jenny

The Art Teacher Inspires the Artist:
“I want you to paint all the most beautiful things in the world.” Jennifer Jones
(Every landscape is a mental escape from reality; a reality that is full of complications and responsibilities. Suddenly, you’re sailing out into an unlimited sea or soaring into the clouds. In this way, the artist is a travel agent.) Portrait of Jenny

A mountain of water is like a giant wave of judgment. One should recognize the hazards of different types of water, just for your own safety. It is healthy to have a fear of the ocean, for even tough old sea-salts can lose their life in storms, hurricanes and typhoons. G. Julian Walker

The Eyes have it
The wisdom relating to dealing with women by men is this: The Soul energy is sending beams of love through the eyes. A lovely face represents paradise in heaven. To medi-tate on the breasts and lower is to bathe yourself in an ocean of lust and is presided over by a Goddess: Mother Earth. Here’s the Mother and her contract is a legal, binding contract; giving you half interest in the Great Undertaking called Repopulation and more civilization. Congratulations, you can leave a forget-me-not when you die. The boy or girl of yours has your ego trip already built in. Oh, it’s the living end! G. Julian Walker

The Truth about Cats
Cats are usually placid animals, who don’t usually want to harm humans; but if you shout at them and shine lights at them, you can make them scared and when they’re scared they go crazy. The Leopard Man
Caged animals are unpredictable when they are set free. They are just like frustrated adults, who have stored up their anger for restraining them from the spirit of freedom that they once enjoyed, roaming in Nature. Thus, they might strike out with their claws.

The Joy of Parenting
The joy of parenting is felt when you show your child what once delighted you.

Ah, this is indeed a source of true happiness. J.B. Priestley

The Christian Way of Juvenile Delinquency
Don’t hit your son ! We’re not dealing with wild animals here, but tough and angry teenagers. You can beat them, but they just get tougher and more angry. Send them to jail and you wreck them for good. These aren’t the answers. We shall try to understand them, for kids don’t get this way for no reason. We invite them to confess their frustration; we listen without judging them and sympathize. You can tell them to be good, but they have their own reasons to be bad. So, we become patient and we pray for them like a Christian, a psychiatrist, a mentor or a caring parent. We spend time with them, offering them possible pleasing pastimes (They must have more options; options that are civilizing, gentle enough and bring happiness). Gradually, every now and then; their mood changes to a loving, more-friendly one. You need patience, for it takes a long time to straighten out just one kid and is fraught with troublesome complications; but if it happens to be your kid; it’s worth it. John Cassavetes in Crime in the Streets ~

“You look very stylish dear. You know, I bought a dress from Paris, but my husband wouldn’t let me wear it ! He said, it makes me look like a wet seal or everyone could see plainly what was underneath.

Mandalay, 1933

A Woman’s Wisdom for Survival
Well I guess it’s no use telling you, but you’ll find out for yourself. If you’ve got any sense at all; you’ll make the best of it. You’ll just have to go on living and before you’re through, you’ll find out that it’s easier to make men do what you want them to do, then it is to fall in love and have them make a food of you. Anyway, you’re pretty enough to go a long way, if you use your head. I know, you want to get away from here, wouldn’t you? Well, make those lusty, thick-headed goats do it for you; use them while they are scheming to get you, take them for all they are worth. Then you can laugh at them, just like your former lover is laughing at you now. It’s no use lying around in bed all day; all you’ll get is a headache. Time to get back on your feet and make the most of it.
Mandalay ~~1933
Gods from Heaven are Seen on Earth
Maharaja Parikshit, after having selected Kripacarya for guidance as his spiritual master, performed three horse sacrifices on the banks of the Ganges. These sacrifices were executed with sufficient rewards for the attendants. Also at these sacrifices, even the common man could see demigods. Srimad Bhagavatam 1.16.3
Purport by Srila Prabhupada: It appears from this verse that inter-planetary travel by the denizens of higher planets was easy. In many statements in the Bhagavatam, we have observed that the demigods from heaven used to visit the earth to attend sacrifices performed by influential kings and emperors. Herein also we find that during the time of the horse sacrifices ceremonies of Maharaja Parikshit, the demigods form other planets were visible to the common man. The demigods are not generally visible to the common man, as the Lord is not visible. But, as the Lord, by His causeless mercy, descends to be visible to the common man, similarly, the demigods also become visible by their grace; due to the presence of Maharaja Parikshit.

Gay by Definition
When a straight man puts on a dress for sexual kicks; he’s a transvestite. When a man is a woman, trapped in a man’s body and has to have an operation; he’s a transsexual. When a man has too much sexuality for one gender; he’s a gay man. But you, my dear
are just a boy in a dress. When you dress up your act; you’re a drag princess. When you’re a master of disguise; you’re a drag queen. Too Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything

Quotations from On Dangerous Ground
“If you want something out of this life; you have to put something in it: Something from the heart.” “Not all cops are good; some of them are just gangsters with badges.”

Prayer of the Blind Lady: Father, Hear My Prayer. The Soul of Danny is coming your way, forgive him for his sins, as you would forgive all your children. He was young, foolish and under the spell of passion and illusion. He didn’t know what he was doing, for he was out of touch and did not pray. Lord, give him your peace, for he searched desperately for peace on earth, but could not find it. Ida Lupino

Prayers for Drivers II: The Power of Love: Our Father, who art in Heaven, in our Hearts and in every Atom: Hollowed Be Thy Name. You are the Creator, Sustainer and Destroyer of all these worlds. Thy Kingdom may come to us one day, but until then Thou Will Be Done; in this galaxy and in all galaxies within the material sphere. Yea, forgive our sins, for we are all sinners here, whether knowing or unknowing. Down here we are all brothers and sisters behind the wheel of a vehicle; so I ask them to forgive my trespassing of their driver’s rights, as I would forgive the trespassing of my driver’s rights, cheerfully and with good manners. For we are all sinners here, but not all sins are equal. Most driving sins are small, so please be tolerant and understanding. My fellow drivers; we have an awesome responsibility that requires at least 95% concentration and have to avoid the pitfall of drinking alcohol and driving recklessly. You may have a lot to answer for if you kill somebody when you’re drunk and there will be regrets that haunt you all through life. But, just as we are sometimes forgetful of the Lord; we can also be forgetful of our passengers. May we be victorious over evil thoughts and influences while driving. Remember the first rule of driving: When in doubt start breaking and remember the joys of driving: enjoying the passing scenery and the heavenly feeling of riding high on air over many miles with many smiles. But, lead us not into temptation of an unpredictable chance, and keep the zen of driving by being
sure where you are going and quick to signal other drivers which way you are heading. Let your running lights remind you of knowing when to have extra caution; as at night, in rain and storms, which you should avoid, for most accidents happen under those circumstances and do-not sustain high speeds, for accidents then are fatal. The common sense of driving is to pull over to a rest area when you are nodding out and take a nap. Statistics prove that those people who nap, are better adjusted psychologically and more aware of signs of danger. And lead us not into anger, but deliver us from the moods and modes of mundane life. For, as yogis, we must practice restraint and tolerance; con-trolling our bladder movements, as well as, disciplining ourselves to accentuate the joy of driving, which includes being the hero of all your passengers, thus you accentuate the positive and affirm the wonderful gift of love, for that is the power of love~ which goes hand in hand with prayer. Thus we should not drive when frustrated or depressed, but play down small mistakes and near misses, in a world of forgetfulness, quarrel and conceit, as well as, deceit. And if we are remiss, stop us in the middle of our declaration of profanity and vanity. Jog our mind Lord with the many hours of pleasant driving and the wonderful privilege of driving with the help of The Holy Ghost, our Conscience and Renewals of Faith each day. Yea, with steady intelligence and control in yoga I say Amen. As we explore history we find sin and for all time, as we observe the panorama of Geology, Flora and Fauna in Nature and the charm of friendly people in a small town. Together, as always in a temporary world, longing for our eternal pastime of driving again in the Spiritual World. Selah ~~“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil.” 1 Corinthians 13.4-6

I will do all in my power to elevate the standard of my profession and will hold in confidence all personal matters admitted by a doctor to my keeping. By the same token, I keep family secrets coming to my knowledge in the practice of my calling.

A Plaything of Time ~ A Joke for God
I have a new and totally imaginary idea for the time of my life called birthdays! When I reach 50 years old; I shall have a gay and wonderful party called The Half-Century Birthday Bash! After that celebration (which certainly does include the Time-Honored Tradition of a scene at night with birthday cake and candles burning bright). Behold ! It is moving toward you in the dark; as well as the chorus of Happy Birthday singers to you. You can start subtracting every year from your life, instead of adding them when you reach 50.

The Story of Painless Dentistry
It does not seem to be generally understood that before there was painless dentistry; there was nothing for pain. The patient was simply strapped down and that is all !
This is the story of Dr. W.T.G. Morton of Boston, Mass. Before the efforts of this man, there was just agony; in the dentist chair, as well as in surgery. After Dr. Morton’s life, people took his contributions for granted. However, great men alone can reverse the laws of perspective and we grow smaller as we learn about them. Why this is said is the truth of this movie: Dwarfed by the magnitude of his revelation; he was reviled and berated by his fellow man. An opinion not shared by his many dental patients, who were amazed and relieved by his compassion. Unfortunately, he was forgotten, before he was remembered and his patent, dealing with the principle of anesthesia, was rejected by the government, because it was challenged by glory hounds and opportunists. To them Morton seemed very small, until the incandescent moment he ruined himself by reveal-ing his secret formula for the good of all Mankind. Prologue to The Great Moment~1944

“Beginning in the 1400s, when European explorers misnamed Native Americans as ‘Indians’; racial stereotyping, discrimination, devastation of tribal cultures and usurping of their lands, have all become a shameful part of our nation’s history.

The Blue Bucket Mystery
As one version of the story goes, while camped at a stream, children collected water in a blue bucket. Later, after the wagon train had moved some distance, someone noticed gold nuggets in the bottom of the bucket. After rescued train members eventually reached their destination, some of them unsuccessfully attempted to retrace the route and find the nugget-bearing-stream. For more than a hundred years, other gold-seekers have tried in vain to relocate the source of the famous blue-bucket-nuggets.

Quotations from Berlin Express
Sometimes I think the people of Earth will never get together in peace, unless they are attacked by aliens from outer space. Then and there, people will find someone else to hate besides themselves. Sometimes I give up trying and resign myself to a flawed world, but sometimes hope shines like the sun in spring and I think someday, yes ~ Yes
Someday ~ We Will Make It ! Extrapolated from Berlin Express
Here was all that was left of one of Europe’s most beautiful thorough-fares Unter Dem Linden, with The Brandenburg Gate at its foot. Here’s Hotel Aldon, a plush retreat once, now suspended. Close at hand, the Reich-stat, redecorated as a monument to the Reich in ruins. Within the sight of that; the towering trees of the Tear-drops, which have all been borrowed for firewood. Here in Berlin, all the friends (Allies) have met and celebrated their victory; yet the aftermath of war in Europe has shown us going our separate ways and old distrust, prejudices and feuds gradually appear again.

The Moral of the Movie: You don’t have to fuck a drag queen and you don’t have to fuck them up, because they have entertainment value.

I’ve Been to Paradise ~ But I’ve Never Been To The Spiritual Part of Me*
Hey Lady, I know you’re cursing at your life. You’re a discontented mother and a poor and jaded wife. I’ve no doubt that you dream about, the things you never do (!) But I wish someone would talk to me, like I’m talking to you. Uh, I’ve been to Georgia and California – and anywhere I could run. I once took the hand of a preacher man and we made love in the sun ! Now, I’ve run out of beautiful places and friendly faces, because I’ve had to be free. I’ve been to Paradise, but I’ve never been to The Spiritual Part of Me. Please Lady ~~ Please Lady, don’t just walk away ~ because I’ve had this need to
tell you, why I’m all alone today. I can see so much of me, just stewing in your eyes; won’t you share a part of a weary heart that has lived a million lives. Oh, I’ve been to Niece (France) and the Isles of Greece, while I’ve sipped champagne on a yacht. I’ve moved like Harlow and teased rich men in Monte Carlo and showed off, what I’ve got !! I’ve been undressed by Kings and drunken pirates, rough and mean; and I’ve seen some things that a lady should never see. Listen now my sisters ~ Yes, I’ve been to Paradise, but I’ve never been to the Spiritual Part of Me. *A Woman’s Confession to other women.

“This is a little story about 4 people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did. Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought that Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it. Well, it ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody, when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.”

What Shall We Do with this Heavenly Love ?
I knew not that you loved me, nor did I know that you loved me. But now my heart has revealed it to me. You came to me in the Etheric and I escaped with you into a Rose Dream; there must be a spell on us ! But what shall we do with this heavenly happiness?
Shall we let it be seen or should it be kept a secret ?
Together we will make our life a great adventure; an adventure like no other. Our Love will be a legend and we will live long in the memory of the world, for you are a princess and I a prince. But what shall we do with this extraordinary Feeling: Shall we let it be seen or should it be kept a secret ?
I, the Prince say we should do whatever is forbidden of Royalty: We will go together to the Royal Buffet and afterward, we shall smoke a pipe in secret and get high together. Then, we shall go together for Deserts at the Royal Table of Pastries. We shall stuff ourselves and laugh ! But what shall we do with all this Heavenly Joy ? Shall we let it be seen or should it be kept a secret ? I, the Princess say that life is full of such love; so we shall not do what is forbidden, for that is not dignified. We shall marry and have plenty of children and each one shall be called the greatest of all French Pastries: 1. Apple Savarain 2. Apricot Cobbler 3.Strawberry Shortcake 4. Alaskan Rum Cake

Spoken of John Wayne
He closed the eyes of many a hombre in his early cowboy movies and opened the eyes of many a lonesome maid. Angel and the Badman

“Circumstantial evidence has convicted and hanged many a man in the Old West; when justice was hit or miss.” John Wayne

Commentary on John Wayne
John Wayne starred in many a one-reel movie in the 1930s. John had a unique role in these movies. Instead of assuming the role of Sheriff or Hero; he appeared as a bad hombre spy and laid clever traps for them at the same time. Reassuring the innocent with anonymous notes he was a cowboy secret agent, before secret agent movies were popular. In the rare movie Randy Rides Alone he rides a big white horse and wears an outfit of black with a black hat. The traps he sets are lessons in real life. Julian Walker

Baseball ~ The American Way
Controversy has occurred because of many a close call by an umpire in Baseball. I think it’s high time some new rules be instituted. It’s not fair to give so much authority to one man. Thus, there should be An Appeal to umpire calls. This could be called by a manager of either team. Then, a second opinion should be ventured by a panel of um-pires, after discussion and video review. This should be the final call. G. Julian Walker

The Legend and the Facts about Johnny Appleseed
In the movie Raintree County, which was a movie a lot like Gone With the Wind, there was a legend that Johnny Appleseed planted a rare and exotic Chinese Tree in
Raintree County. There are other legends that speak of Johnny Appleseed planting many different trees. He was a preacher and any holy man knows that you cannot limit God to One Son or One Type of Fruit Tree. Legends tend to exaggerate things, but the facts speak for themselves; Nature has fruit trees of many types, among them are pear, persimmon, and even Avocado. Johnny Appleseed had a diet like Jesus ~ vegetarian and he taught farmers and Indians how to live without killing animals. That is logical.

Introduction to Richard III ~ a movie based on William Shakespeare
The story of England, like the story of any other land, is an interwoven pattern of fact and fiction. The history of the world is like letters without poetry, without flowers and without perfume, or even thoughts without imagination. It is because of these dry matters that legends are started, although many critics scorn the idea. However, many people see them as worth preserving, because they are so familiar and are possible explanations of what we see today. But the truth is that history has many mysteries.

Send Flowers to her Home, not to where she works
Romance is a career in itself. It requires too much time and energy for a business executive. A woman in love is a pathetic spectacle; she is either so miserable, she wants to die or so happy she’s ready to die. For some women, men are a house-hold necessity.

The Plea of the Peace-Maker
Why die for a piece of land when there so much of it ? Men say they have their reasons; but men always can find a reason to murder each other. I know you’re thinking that you’re doing right, but there’s no right in killing. Must everyone here die before the slaughter stops. Someone kills your brother and you kill his brother; why can’t it stop there. Well, it can’t, killing starts as a brush fire and ends up a forest fire that nobody can stop. I like to know what good it has done; it only brings on more killing; must everyone here die to prove how brave they are. Why don’t you stop and consider how to make peace, instead of trying to establish the biggest cemetery in the country. Why don’t you think about how much courage it takes to live in peace and try to live for a change. The Violent Men

Criminal Categories in the FBI
There’s a lot of variety in crime of the 1920s. There’s burglary, armed robbery, forgery, larceny, perjury and kidnapping. They will steal your watch, your wife, your house, your flashlight and your good reputation. You name it; they will steal it, in broad daylight or late at night. Now, take murder. There’s genocide, matricide, patricide, suicide and treason. There’s murder by gun, knife, poison and strangulation. We seek to
combat these things, because they are demoniac and a disturbance in society at large. You might say; we have a love for Righteousness. The FBI Story

“I was trained as a priest and I can tell you from experience; in convents they never tell you the way things really are.

This means she is a respectable woman.” Two Women

This is my island in the sun ~ where my people have toiled since time begun
I have sailed on many a sea ~ but her shores will always be home to me
Oh Island in the Sun ~ willed to me by my Father’s Hand
All my days I will sing its praise ~ of your harsh waters and shining sand ~~
When morning breaks with the heavens on high ~ I lift my heavy load to the sky
The sun comes down with a burning glow and mingles my sweat with the earth below
Oh Island in the Sun ~ willed to me by my Father’s Hand
All my days I will sing its praise ~ of your harsh waters and shining sand ~~
I see women on bended knee, cutting cane for their family
I see men at the water side ~ casting nets at the surging tide
Oh Island in the Sun ~ willed to me by my Father’s Hand
All my days I will sing its praise ~ of your harsh waters and shining sand ~~
There will never come a time, when I will ever miss ~ those gay colored skirts
As they turn and twist while dancing and singing or whispering with soft guitars
And Lo ~~ I hear a maiden’s voice drifting up to a thousand stars ~~ 1957

You see, if you want to be a poet or a musician, you’ve got to be an exhibitionist ! You have to be seen, heard and felt; you’ve got to be noticed !

I used to be a church reformer and that’s like a benign exhibitionist, but that just wasn’t enough for me. Now, I’m just a lewd vagrant. Yes, that’s me, a lewd vagrant with a great big heart.

Quotations from The Fortune Cookie
Jack Lemmon and Walter Mathau were a comedy team that was famous in the Sixties. Walter Mauthau played a wise cracking sports announcer, a slob and Jack Lemmon was the fall guy who was neat and clean in their TV Series: The Odd Couple; and it all started with the hilarious comedy movie called The Fortune Cookie. 1964
Jack Lemmon: What happened, where am I ? Walter Mathau: You’re in a hospital, you were tackled by Boom-Boom Jackson at a football game. Now, how many fingers do you see in front of you? Jack Lemmon: I see only one-cheap, chiseling, shyster lawyer in front of me !
Nurse: Doctor what did you find inside that boy who swallowed all the change? Doctor: I found 3 buttons, a thumb-tack and 27 cents in change; I confess, I took the change ! (Silly people keep asking me are you sure, doctor ? What do you think I am; a barber, just because I wear a white outfit ?).
Lawyer Wisdom: Every time you try to catch a mouse in court they build a better mousetrap. That’s right, the mice are smarter than you thought; they have changed their hustle, now you see before you a mouse with muscle!
What do lawyers do to each other in court? They start out with a do-nut and then they twist it and twist it, until it turns into a pretzel, then they salt it before they give it to you.
From one lawyer to another I tell you that your certificate of practice is a forgery. It cannot be respected, because you did not pass the bar exam. That’s right! Joe the bartender testified that you did not slide that whiskey down the bar to the judge at the other end. Lawyers are sometimes like blood-hounds who are barking up the wrong tree.

Ragtime Romance (It’s Delightful to be Married)~~ by G. Julian Walker
Spooning was not fully explained in the Ragtime Songs of the 20th Century, but included hugging and kissing in the interim. It remains an intermission pastime; what else you may ask ? Why, pleasing association; the comradery of loving friends (mate candidates) enjoying pastime they both enjoy, whether it be Swinging (pushing her on a swing and stealing a kiss on the cheek) or Swinging Down the Lane (holding hands and skipping together while swinging hands). There are many other pastimes together, like singing with accompaniment (usually on the piano). Then there’s wining, dining, dancing and twirling or hugging and squeezing in the moonlight, but could include gentle rubbing or healing massage, relieving pent up stress (erotic massage is reserved for marriage). Spooning means romantic endeavors, like Canoodle-oodling or caressing while the canoe is coasting. This careening should not be misunderstood; it is caressing without messing (bodily fluids). Any sex before marriage was irreligious (illicit sex) and is the behavior which separates Ladies & Gentlemen from Pirates and Roques. A girl has got to have some secrets (that is part of the magnetism of mysterious behavior). A clever man should keep secrets too (Blowing Breeze don’t tell the trees, because the trees don’t need to know). There is mystery in the glance with a smile and a wink or a raised eyebrow or a head swivel (bouncing from side to side). “Oh, Oh,” Sings the Ragtime Song. “Coax me, Come on and Coax me !” But don’t force me, tease me, please me, need me, but don’t greed me. Here is the conversation you didn’t hear: “You’ve been a bad boy today, but I’m going to let you off easy. Lighten up ‘til next time because what you want is not a flash-in-the-pan-snack, but regular-substantial-meals.”

The Tavern Maid’s Bawdy Ballad ~~ from The Fox
She was a maiden young and respectable. He was a rake and proud of his skin. He kissed her breast and found it delectable; softly she whispered, please do what you will

Roll it over, Roll it over, even tho’ you never did it before ~ Roll it over, Roll it over, and you’ll never be a maiden any more ~~
He had his way with her and she didn’t mind. He had his way with her, ’till he was ready to drop. She had her way with him and then, he had a surprise, although he pleaded, she wouldn’t stop ~ Roll it over, Roll it over, even tho’ you never did it before ~
Roll it over, Roll it over and you’ll never, ever be a maiden anymore ! Anne Heywood

“There were many movies in the 50s showing big stars(our models) smoking cigarettes and drinking mixed drinks with hard liquor. This idea continued into the 60s, however Kirk Douglas gave guidelines for drinking in the movie Strangers When We meet (1960)
He said “I don’t drink this early in the day.” The idea is that if you don’t have guidelines and some discipline for drinking hard liquor; it’s easy to descend into alcoholism. It starts out as a malady and ends up a disease of the cursed.” G. Julian Walker

Guidelines for Successful Marriages ~ from Strangers When We Meet
What husbands don’t know is that wives need to be told she’s attractive and lovely. She also needs to be hugged and kissed regularly. It’s easy to take a loyal wife for granted.

Memorable Historical Events ~ 1917
The United States declared war on Germany on April 6. The first American troops landed in France in June and the first American was killed on September the 4th. Rosa & Carmella Ponselle were doing a “sister act” in vaudeville and the Prohibition Amendment was submitted to Congress in December. Two famous Americans died in this year: Admiral Dewey and Buffalo Bill. The horse that won the Kentucky Derby in this year was Omar Khayyam. Events of this year inspired George M.

There Must be some Excitement
In my youth I remember attending a party up in the hills. I remember talking to people I didn’t know. Before me were intoxicated people and there was an exchange of conversation; a testing of ideas and a comparison of personalities. Then, I remember staring out the window at the colored lights in the Bay. It was Christmas and miles below me were reds & greens. How Interesting I muttered. G. Julian Walker

Good Luck & Bad Luck
Let’s get philosophical here for a moment: I admit that I’m a gambler, well- Love is a gamble too. Come closer for my confession: You know what, I’m gonna level with you; I was so excited about gambling in casinos that I turned a hot $300 into a cool 10 cents. Oh well, you can’t win them all; if you can, it’s called cheating. That’s life and that’s love; you gotta take the good with the bad. Jumbo, the movie

The Why and Wherefore of Immigration
If they didn’t have immigration laws, America could not keep the Riff-Raff from overwhelming them. In fact, the reason there are immigration laws is because they have too much Riff-Raff already. It all started with the Statue of Liberty, with the message “Give me your poor and huddled masses who are yearning to be free!” Well, the huddled masses came in droves, bred like rabbits, spread like wild-fire and died like flies.

Ragtime Era in Burns, Oregon ~ In June, 1903, the first “horseless-carriage” drove through the town. It was a 20 horsepower Winton, piloted by its owner, Dr. Horatio Jackson, on his historic quest to cross America. It was the first successful trans-continental road trip. The co-driver-mechanic was Sewell Crocker and a bulldog mascot named Bud (who, like the men, wore driving goggles). The trio travelled eastward at the blistering pace of twenty miles per hour. Roadside spectators were so impressed that they christened the contraption “the Go-Like-Hell-Machine.”

Introduction to Merrill’s Marauders ~ A True Story
January, 1943, the high-water mark of NAZI Conquest. Hitler’s armies hammered at the gateway to the Near East, as their Japanese Allies poured across Asia. They were an irresistible flood of men and weapons, trying to link-up with the German Armies to the West, crushing the world in between them. Sweeping into Burma, the Japanese captured two important air bases, Wallaboom and Mitchina. Our forces, pitifully weak, retreated along elephant trails, scattered into jungles, across rivers and mountain passes.
The Allies took sanctuary in India. General Stillwell, gave the last word on our situation in Burma: “I claim that we took a hell of a beating in Burma and it’s humiliating as hell. I think we ought to find out what caused our defeat, go back and retake that country.” Inspired by this revelation, President Roosevelt met with Prime Minister Churchill to consolidate our forces and magnify our strengths (as the Germans & Japanese had met to conquer the world). To India, they sent many soldiers for a special mission, to retake Burma. Soon, there arrived Irishmen, Scotchmen, Englishmen, New Zealanders and Australians. America sent their most experienced jungle fighters: 3,000 troops were selected for this hazardous and dangerous undertaking. Organized as the 5,300 Provisional Composite Unit and placed under the command of General Stillwell, they were ready for the boldest commando raid of WWII.
On January 4th, 1944, under Brigadier General Merrill, this army launched a landing in Burma, 2oo miles behind enemy lines. Their mission, to lead a surprise attack on Wallaboom & Michina. To do this, they had to hike into swamps, jungles, cross rivers and climb mountains, under the hazards of malaria, typhus and limited food and water. After 3 months of hiking through the cruelest jungle on earth, they spear-headed a raid on Wallaboom and soon after took Mitchina, at a terrible cost. Casualties were heavy. After Mitchina, Merrill’s Marauders were disbanded. There were only 100 soldiers left. This celebrated victory inspired the Allies to other victories. 1962

These famed expedition leaders and their men became the first whites to explore the interior sections of these rivers, east of the Cascade Range. . They were struggling then to cross the snowbound Bitterroot Mountains and descend westward into the lower, warmer canyons of the Snake. If not for friendly Shoshone and Nez Perce Indians, who fed them and acted as their guides through the mountainous maze, they surely would have perished.” (Just as the Native Americans had saved the first Europeans in the East).

Despair, an exceptional movie
Despair is a movie based on a classic novel of Vladmir Nabokov. It is starring Andrea Ferreol, who is a sensual German Fraulein ~ mostly seen nude. It deals with one of the most important mysteries of history: The Rise of Hitler in Germany. It was set in Berlin around 1929. Also Freud is presented to Berliners. Many people did not agree with Freud. Many Berliners said that Dr. Freud is some kind of fanatic; the only thing he cares about is sex, violence and shocking love for your mother, as well as the disgusting motives of people. He has nothing good to say about anybody. Freud’s reply “I have long observed these things.” The Pagans say that life is full of mysteries; the further back you go, the bigger the theory and the bigger the leap of faith.
When National Socialism started in Germany, they were called the brown shirts and represented the common sense of a farmer or a loyal worker. Unfortunately, it was sabotaged by an evil force; they wore black shirts and represented death. The two shirts were combined. Thus, a movement based on democracy combined with socialism was promised, but was hijacked by Fascists. Many people in Germany were uneasy about abandoning democracy; just as Americans were disappointed with democracy in 1930s.

Geography Lesson from 1908
Not only had both the North Pole and the South Pole eluded Man, but vast swatches of Eastern Europe, including much of the Balkans were unexplored by outsiders.

“Between 1921 and 1924, America’s gross national product skyrocketed with aggregate wages rising steadily. The United States, which entered World War I a debtor nation; emerged as Europe’s largest creditor. Much of the increase in national wealth was due to fantastic jumps in manufacturing and productivity, as a result of widespread electrifi-cation and modernization in plants and factories. If the nation was rich, shouldn’t everyone have shared equally in the bounty? Not necessarily, the Bookings Institute discovered that in 1929, roughly 42% of American families lived at the minimum subsistence for a family of 5. Altogether, the income of the top 1% of families equaled the aggregate income of the bottom 42%. The United States in the 1920s might have seemed wealthy, but it’s riches were distributed unevenly. Yet, even if there were inequities in wealth and income; many ordinary Americans still shared in the general prosperity. By the mid 1920s, almost two-thirds of American households had electricity, a dramatic increase from the previous decade. The country was eating better too. Before the perfection of commercial refrigeration and packaging; the long winters used to choke off supplies of vegetables and fruits and nearly everybody would be sick, be-cause of a lack of green stuff to eat. Now, the availability of spinach, lettuce, oranges and carrots, translated into balanced meals, year round. By the end of the 1920s, more than twelve million American households had a radio and the Age of Mass Communi-cation dawned on America.” From the best-selling book: Flapper by Joshua Zeitz

People are Searching the Sky !
America’s relationship with the sky, changed in the Spring of 1908. In the Past, America had been a nation of people who looked mainly downward to locate the futures; down at the soil, from which farmers hoped their crops would grow; down into creek beds, for gold nuggets that might catch their eye and increase their worth; down into mine shafts for coal and iron ore that would feed their industries. The Earth, itself was considered the greatest source of sustenance and hope. But now, at the start of the Twentieth Century, came a shift in perspective; a sensational rumor started that turned into a roar: The Wright Brothers had a flying machine and man could fly like a bird ! All of a sudden, the Future beckoned from above and people flung their heads back to catch it. From the best-selling novel 1908 by Jim Rasenberger

One of the Highest Teachings of Christ
And Jesus said: The wise who would lead you say: Seek ye the Kingdom of Heaven (for it is a higher birth). (If you would go to heaven) Then the birds of Heaven will precede you (there will be a sign). If they say it’s in the seed (it means you’ll have to take another birth here on earth.) Then the fish will precede you. But the Kingdom of God is within you and without you. (God and His Planet are within you and God’s creation on earth is before you). And a disciple asked Jesus: Tell us how our end shall come? And Jesus said: If you have not discovered the beginning; how can you know the end ? For, if there is a beginning, then there will be an end. (But it is unknown) And Jesus continued: Blessed is he who stands at the beginning and knows the end (of this body only) but not taste death (for there is no death for the Soul). And a disciple asked: When will the end come? And Jesus said: It will not come by expectation; they will not say it’s here or it is there, and even upon the Earth, the Kingdom of the Father is spread out before you (but nobody who is not spiritually trained can see it).

The History of Clothes Making
In 1791, the Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton, prepared a report on American Manufacturers. The result was that two-thirds of all American clothes was hand- made; the rest were hand crafted by dressmakers and tailors, who worked mainly for wealthy patrons. With technological advances, this fact changed. The sewing machine, first patented in 1846 was extremely popular and thereafter, ready to wear clothes was being sold for working class people, sailors, miners, lumbermen, railroad crewmen and soldiers. In 1850, Ellen Curtis Demorest, invented the paper dress pattern. Demorest made a small fortune with her line of simile, but elegant paper blueprints; which made clothes making with a sewing machine very easy.

The History of Women’s Fashion
In the Victorian Era, women were forced to wear multiple undergarments and artificial cages. Paul Poiret, a French designer was against this idea and wanted to change it. Capitalizing on his reputation in France for simple elegant designs, he set out to revolutionize women’s fashion in America. His line was called Clothing for the New Woman. His style featured high waistlines, a long-straight silhouette, V-shaped neck-lines and in place of those lackluster dark shades that dominated Victorian Era fashion; he introduced a bold palette of red, gold and yellow. Starting in 1906, his designs consciously rejected the S-curve, which was why women wore those torture devices called corsets. Corsets made the bust push out, the waist suck in and the derriere jam back; the same idea that dominated fashion in the 1890s. He observed that it made women look like they were hauling a trailer behind her. “I waged war on the corset !” added Poiret. Eventually, his revolution would triumph over the S-Curve. He said he did this in the name of Liberty and women’s rights (This was about the time that the Statue of Liberty was donated to America by the French). In 1908, there were big parades of women demanding the right to vote and to be treated with equal opportunity. Poiret sympathized with this movement and women loved him for it. In his words “I freed the bust and made the brassiere popular.” For Poiret, fashion was a mystic force that demanded constant change and innovation. Poiret also invented the Mannekin for fashion experiments. In the 1920s, Poiret was trumped by a new innovator: Coco Chanel, who had become rich selling French perfume (#5). Coco’s fashion was at first high-end dresses, chemises and accessories. Coco stated that the New Woman needed new designs for sport, work with men and leisure. Coco made a small fortune selling original models that blurred the line between masculine & feminine. She featured blue blazes and turtle neck sweaters of the variety that English sailors wore, as well as loose fitting concoctions with knit and flannel materials. She proved especially deft at jersey.
Jersey, a heavy material that was avoided by most dressmakers. Finally, Coco invented the Flapper Look. Her explanation goes like this: “One day I put on a man’s sweater because it was cold. I tied a handkerchief at the waist and was immediatetly accosted by rich, fashion conscious women at the beaches and polo grounds for more of them.” Thus, the Coco Chanel Frock was born. In the early 1920s, she had three thousand workers in her factory and was well poised to dominate feminine fashion for the coming decade. In 1923, Chanel introduced the “Garconne Look” or the “Young boy look.” This was hailed in England and America as the Flapper Look. It featured tubular dresses with dropped or invisible waistlines, high hemlines that crawled up toward the knees, tank-tops, straight-vertical lines and intricate decorative beading & fashionable buttons & holes that had no function. She topped it off with bell-shaped cloche hats (which look
like colorful shower caps today). She introduced new fabrics, like tweed and design elements. This became known as the Flapper Uniform. If Paul Poiret had unloosed women’s fashion from the tight grip of the corset; Chanel drove the revolution forward in leaps and bounds; eliminating altogether the frills and excesses of women’s couture in favor of styles that offered comfort, maneuverability and practical uses. In place of the three dimensional ruffles, edges and leg of mutton sleeves, she used complicated bead work and colored swirls that evoked some of the trends in modern art, then very much in favor in Paris. Out with the pagoda hips and tapered hems and in with the slender, elegant outline of the natural body; thus Chanel achieved a continuity between the torso and chest like never before in history. In 1925, the Washington Post commented on women’s fashion: “The hemline moveth slowly up and abideth nowhere.” This trend scandalized defenders of the old order, who were particularly alarmed by the sight of bare legs. Thus, modesty became an option and women could wear pastel stockings that quickly became a feature of the garconne look. A fashion critic for The New York Times gave us a poem about the Flapper look. “Mary had a little skirt, the latest style ~ no doubt. But every time she got inside, she was more than halfway out.” Yes, thanks to Coco Chanel; short skirts were in, dropped waistlines and straight silhouettes were here to stay, but that was just part of the changing scene of women’s fashion in different eras. Poiret was correct about that. From the best-selling documentary Flapper

That’s Not My Concern !
We, Renoirs, refuse to paint the world black; we believe a painting should be something cheerful and pleasant. Renoir

“The test for impressionistic art is not the line but the color.” Renoir
Purport: To understand Impressionism, you must squint and obscure your vision, until the feeling of color is more important than the line. G. Julian Walker

“Don’t force Fate’s hand !” Renoir ~ Purport: Some things in life are possible but also dangerous; but then again, you don’t have to choose them. G. Julian Walker
“There are tests for almost everything in life; the test of a great artist is the aftermath and meditation. Strangely, you yearn for that fruit in a still life, like never before. When you see a nude painting; you yearn for that girl, like never before. That is great art.”
G. Julian Walker

“One must go to the source of his inspiration; that’s why I go out into Nature.”
Renoir, a movie with the French point of view with English subtitles
Purport: As a Personalist and not an Impersonalist; I go into Nature and talk to the Gods & Goddesses, for they control the spirit energies, just as you the person controls the part of you that is felt on the radio, in a book or by rumor. Being empowered servants of The Lord you owe them proper respect, especially out in Nature, which is their alter. There is a special energy in Nature, where Man has never been. If you are honest and sincere; you can feel a Divine Revelation then and there ! Here is God ~ Wild & Free. G. Julian Walker

The way to find gold is to explore creeks. Bring your pan and collect grains in a little bag (glittering grains in your pocket will keep your spirits high and pay for expenses). Then, start exploring creeks again. Whenever you find a place where Man has never been; you will find something valuable in plain sight. But if you want to find gold-nuggets; start turning over old rocks, that’s where they hang out. G. Julian Walker

Wisdom of the Ages
America grows older, yet stays focused on its young. Whatever hill we try to climb, we’re “over” it by fifty, and should that hill involve entertainment or athletics, we’re finished long before. But if younger is better, it doesn’t appear that younger is best: We want teachers, doctors, generals, and presidents to have reached a certain age. In context after context, we’re more than a little conflicted about elders of the tribe; when is right to honor them, and when to say “step aside”? Nicholas Delbanco in The Art of Old Age

The School for Public Performance
When performing poetry or a dramatic reading; one must plan the most advantageous place to be; usually at center stage. You should stand up straight with your arms at your side and make a short bow to the audience with your head. Then raise your head and voice clearly and confidently, with total disregard for nervousness. Buddenbrooks

Bible Truths in Hippie Christianity
Those that sleep in church also go to Christian Heaven. Thessalonians 4.13
If you are persecuted in one city go to another. Jesus speaks in Mathew 10.22&23*
James, brother of Jesus & president of the Desposni contradicts Paul: What use is it brethren, if a man says he has faith but no works ? Can faith alone save him? Even so, faith ~ standing by itself without works is dead. James 2.15 -17
Early Christian Behavior ~ The Christian communities were connected with each other. If a comrade came in from some other place, the community got him work and found him a place to stay. If he was travelling; they gave him travelling expenses to push on. If a comrade fell sick, the community took care of him. If he died, they buried him at their expense and looked after his widow and children. If he got in jail, as was often the case; it was once more, the community that gave him comfort and help. *Suzanne Olson gives this verse as the reason Jesus left Israel after his crucifixion.
Karl Kautsky in Foundations for Christianity

Forbidden Hollywood
In the early 1930s, before Hollywood began enforcing a self-imposed Production Code; many films allowed for extraordinary frankness, including nudity, adultery and prostitution. Some of these movies featured sirens who were brazenly sexy. They also were a vehicle for daring young actresses who put on display, behavior that was racy, riveting and shocking.

You Dirty Little Home-Wreaker
Jean Harlow: I made up my mind a long time ago that I’m not gonna spend my life living on the wrong side of the tracks; I’m gonna snag me a rich man and I don’t care if he’s married. Una Markel: Yea, be sure you don’t get hit by a train while you’re crossing the tracks ! Red Headed Woman

Illusory Metaphors
To stay alive and to stay awake are not always the same thing. The literary work imagined is not always the work achieved. Youth may be wasted on the young, but age may just as often be wasted on the elderly. Every engagement does not always result in marriage and not ever marriage lasts. Some things continue, some don’t.
Nicholas Delbanco in The Art of Old Age

And then you smile and ~~ Voila ! We can all smile ~ Ah ~ Perfection

Are You Game ? I remember with nostalgia the good old times, when we used to be neckin’ and then you’d get plastered. Then you’d be drunk, sentimental and sad, all at once. I remember when you got crazy and wanted to go get married. I got that Love Fever and couldn’t look at another guy for weeks. Joann Blondel

“What is in your head is a flaming mystery.” Morgan, a British Film of 1966

Prologue to the British Film Morgan
The Lola is the biggest and most powerful of Primates. This gorilla lives in the dense forests of tropical Africa, in very inaccesible places. Adult males have an armspan of 8 feet and can weigh over 600 lb. The gorilla is something of a mystery, but we do know that they roam around with their family in the day; but retire at night, to a nest made of branches and leaves in the trees. They probably sleep there because of the predatory leopard who attacks at night. Despite their large canine teeth, gorillas are strict vegetar-ians and are very fussy about what they eat. They are very fond of fresh fruit and tender, ripe berries, as well as soft young shoots of tropical plants; eating daintily while holding the meal in their right hand. The gorilla has no natural enemies and are an enemy to no-one. Young gorillas stay with their mothers for several years, remaining safe from the night leopard. An angry adult gorilla is a formidable sight; surprised by an intruder, he will tear down great branches of trees and roar in anger; beware when he beats his chest.

Coney Island designated as Scenic Landmark
Coney Island’s boardwalk is a timeless treasure ~ Mitchell J. Silver
It was first discovered in 1609 by Henry Hudson in his ship The Half Moon. In 1860, small hotels had a booming business, but in 1880, a fire destroyed it. It soon became a popular place to walk and a wooden walkway was installed. It became a boardwalk with rides and booths in 1910. The Wonder Wheel and the Cyclone Rollercoaster were popular for summer fun from 1922 to 1941, when it was used by the Navy for the war effort. It has always been a part of the glorious history in The Ragtime Era. It’s 95th birthday party was celebrated on May 15th.

I can’t understand people who want something badly but don’t grab it; I grabbed it !” “Living out there has just meant happiness,” she declared, at eighty-four. “Sometimes I think I’m half mad with love for this place.” Further, “When I think of death, I only regret that I will not be able to see this beautiful country anymore… unless the Indians are right and my spirit will walk here after I’m gone.” ~ The Art of Old Age by Nicholas Delbanco ~ a book

Hippie Christianity’s Bombshell
There are two ideas of God in the Bible represented by two different sets of laws, which contradict each other. Jehovah in the Old Testament is represented by Joshua for the Laws of Moses and El Shaddai is represented by Theophilus in The New Testament. The theme is the premise that the forgiveness of sin through law is the exclusive right of the True God. First we have Joshua, representing Jehovah: “Then Joshua said to the people ‘You will not be able to serve the Lord, for he is a holy god. He is a jealous god and he will not forgive your transgressions or your sin.’” Joshua 24.19. Representing
El Shaddai and Jesus is Theophilus in The New Testament: “Therefore, let it be known to you Brethren, that through Him forgiveness of sin is proclaimed and through him everyone who believes is freed from all things, from which you could not be freed through the Law of Moses.” Acts 13.38 & 39

“The modern idea of art is that artists are giving themselves airs; a modern camera(late 1920s) is much better than any artist ! Now artist what do you say?”
“As a serious artist I deny that I am putting on airs. A camera is a mechanical device which captures a specific moment in time. However it doesn’t explain what that moment means or the emotions that are evolving inside of us; love for instance. A painting is an expression of interpretative feeling it gives subtle touches on what life is evolving into. It is a record of a time and place in history. It is not just a copy; for it has the human touch ! ~~Applause ~~ Brideshead Revisited

Four million people died in 1919 because the Socialist Revolution was not practical. Lenin’s idea of power to the people was intellectually viable, but not in real life.

This is the why, the how and wherefore that Fascism can invade and take over. This particular type of fascism was called Communism. Reds
