“…To be an Athenian is to cherish language because you believe it to be humankind’s most precious gift. In their use of language, Athenians strive for grace, precision, and variety. And they admire those who can achieve such skill. To a Visigoth, one word is as good as another, one sentence in distinguishable from another. A Visigoth’s language aspires to nothing higher than the cliche…”

This should be shared all over. Sadly America is going the way of the Visigoths.

Keshe Gives 10-DAY Notice to ALL Nations of Earth (Oct. 26) – http://wp.me/p2yfNS-6QW

I haven’t looked much into this guy and what he is about, one thing I quickly found out was that no one is talking about it in the mainstream. All I had to do was Google his name and plasma energy and look in news. No news site whatsoever has written about this. Complete silence. Even weirdos and quacks get filler stories written about them. Quacks make for good entertainment, they can be amusing, but not even a crazy quack story. Again…

Complete Silence.

Maybe, just maybe, this guy is for real and the  alternative media community needs to start blasting the airwaves with this information.

Christmas Decorating Made Easy

I couldn’t help myself when I came across this idea.  It didn’t help that I had some plywood in my backyard waiting to be transformed.  Enjoy!

I’m still getting a tickle out of this idea every time I pull up in the drive.

I don’t think I am much an illustrating cartoonist.
Been working on this lovely lady, though, so she can be ready for Christmas day! She may end up being a bit wet however. Hopefully there are no sticky fingers where she will be residing. Those men and their sometimes lack of insight on timelines. Hope the missus is happy.

I splurged a bit on Christmas decorations this year…

I bought a wreath for my front door.

I bought a wreath for my front door.

We try to do our part and help out the environment by living off of aftermarket parts so other than food we stay away from buying new. This helps keep stuff out of landfills and in the west is not hard to do. I am not preaching. Everyone in this world has their part and I feel very comfortable with living my part and feel the same way about others. Well, expect for those that believe they must hoard. That is a little extreme and quite awkward. Someone should take those hoarder people who are trying to overcome their perspectives (psychology might view this predicament differently) and ship the entire contents of their house to a 3rd world country and let them hand it out. This way they stuff goes to people who will appreciate it instead of being hauled off to a dump, and the people who spent a decade or two collecting will feel as though they have accomplished great things; which they will have because some of them could clothe a whole village.

Sorry, for the tangent.

I found the wreath at CynDecor. There were so many that I thought were just awesome, plus she was local. My favorite color is green so I had to go with the green, and I thought this would look good against my green door. I’m not sure if it does or not, I just thought that. The key was also such a cute idea especially since I don’t have a chimney and my children usually want plausible explanations for their questions. So far no question yet about its size. I am crossing my fingers.

As I took this picture I marveled at the sunrise. I am not sure what’s the best way that a house should face, but my which faces directly East gives me the sunrise in my living room in the mornings which is great for beginning the day on the couch with a good book and a hot cup of coffee.

The cat always looks at me like I'm weird.

Then it gives me the most beautiful sunsets in the evenings through my dining room windows and through the kitchen window while cooking dinner. I just thought I would share.

There were so many I had to narrow it down.

I must now get to listening to my Red Ice Radio and get to painting. Christmas is just around the corner and those portraits aren’t going to paint themselves.
