November Adopt A Senior Pet Month...

Posted 11-13-2009 at 11:45 AM by lauriebear777

November Adopt a Senior Pet Month, all too often people over look the older pet for it has too much baggage, but really don't we all...

[B]Baggage (The Meaning of Rescue)[/B]
By Evelyn Colbath(c)1995 Baggage All rights reserved


Now that I'm home, bathed, settled and fed,
All nicely tucked in my warm new bed,
I'd like to open my baggage,
Lest I forget,
There is so much to carry,
So much to regret.
Hmmm...Yes, there it is, right on the top,
Let's unpack Loneliness, Heartache and Loss,
And there by my perch hides Fear and Shame.
As I look on these things I tried so hard to leave,
I still have to unpack my baggage called Pain.
I loved them, the others, the ones who left me,
But I wasn't good enough - for they didn't want me. Will you add to my baggage?
Will you help me unpack?
Or will you just look at my things,
And take me right back?...

A Simple Tradition of Love

Posted 11-12-2009 at 11:15 PM by Jeff Westover (A Merry Blog)

In the wee hours of New Year's Day a thread was begun that started again a cycle of unbroken tradition that began on another site years ago. It is a simple, joyous tradition -- celebrated daily, a habit for many. We call it the Christmas Countdown.

Tonight, that thread surpassed 6800 posts in an ongoing conversation amongst a diverse group of Christmas lovers.

Started years ago on a now defunct forum many of the original posters who were there then are here now -- counting down to this unofficial "official" start of the Christmas season, November 13th.

Like New Year's Eve, tonight they counted down the hours and minutes together. And tomorrow the countdown to Christmas 2009 continues -- in the same thread, in the same happy tradition that will no doubt begin again once the New Year is noted yet again.

Like so many great Christmas traditions what makes this one special is that it is shared. Folks just come together. From wherever...

Mark Twain, Letters from the Earth, 1907

Posted 11-12-2009 at 02:51 PM by lauriebear777

[FONT=Georgia]I have been studying the traits and dispositions of the "lower animals" (so called) and contrasting them with the traits and dispositions of man. I find the result humiliating to me. ~Mark Twain, [I]Letters from the Earth[/I], 1907[/FONT]

In Honor of Veterans Day... A Heart felt THANK YOU!

Posted 11-11-2009 at 09:59 AM by lauriebear777

[FONT=Georgia]Let us take a moment weather we agree or not with war to say a pray of Thanks to all who have served... For it is they who do the living, breathing, dying, for those who care not to look, they protect us when the evil knocks, willing to die for my belief that no one should in war. Thank you my Veterans, for all you have done, you do, and will do, thank you...[/FONT]

[FONT=Georgia]As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. ~John Fitzgerald Kennedy[/FONT]

[FONT=Georgia]This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave. ~Elmer Davis

I like to see a man proud of the place in which he lives. I like to see a man live so that his place will be proud of him. ~Abraham Lincoln

Freedom is never free. ~Author Unknown[/FONT]

The First Thanksgiving

[FONT=Georgia]:family:Thanksgiving Day is a jewel, to set in the hearts of honest men; but be careful that you do not take the day, and leave out the gratitude. ~E.P. Powell[/FONT]

[B]The First Thanksgiving[/B]

In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast which is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies. This harvest meal has become a symbol of cooperation and interaction between English colonists and Native Americans. Although this feast is considered by many to the very first Thanksgiving celebration, it was actually in keeping with a long tradition of celebrating the harvest and giving thanks for a successful bounty of crops. Native American groups throughout the Americas, including the Pueblo, Cherokee, Creek and many others organized harvest festivals, ceremonial dances, and other celebrations of thanks for centuries before the arrival of Europeans in North America.
