I live at the Georgia belle senior apartments for independent living. Many residents decorate their doors, sometimes with the seasons. I often wonder about the people who do NOT decorate their doors; most of these people are men.
Of course, most ladies have their apartments looking like "house beautiful", the men often have their rooms look like "shop 101" or "garage 202", or even..."bed and a TV and a pile of clothes on the floor"!
[Lady: cook properly with a balanced meal.
man: take a can of food and a can opener and a spoon. open can, lean against wall and eat right from the can, cold!!]
Of course this is not always true. there are two men here who were professional cooks.
And..a lady who was in law enforcement.
but every Door tells a story about who is inside.

He looks at the flow of particles from the Sun, and how they interact with the upper atmosphere, especially air currents such as the jet stream, and he looks at how the Moon and other factors influence those streaming particles.
He takes a snapshot of what the Sun is doing at any given moment, and then he looks back at the record to see when it last did something similar. Then he checks what the weather was like on Earth at the time - and he makes a prophecy.
I have not a clue whether his methods are sound or not. But when so many of his forecasts seem to come true, and when he seems to be so consistently ahead of the Met Office, I feel I want to know more. Piers Corbyn believes that the last three winters could be the harbinger of a mini ice age that could be upon us by 2035, and that it could start to be colder than at any time in the last 200 years. He goes on to speculate that a genuine ice age might then settle in, since an ice age is now cyclically overdue.
--maybe the new bumper sticker for the 2020 decade, will be, "burn coal today, keep the ice age away"!
the US goverment, as well as the canadian gov. will might have to pass laws to make it illegal for people to burn low fossil fuels! Also, to require homeowners to burn low grade coal or wood, and factories to do the same, or else Canada might cease to exist, due to glaciers!

"There's a mini ice age coming, says man who beats weather experts December 21, 2010

Piers Corbyn not only predicted the current weather, but he believes things are going to get much worse, says Boris Johnson, London's mayor
The man who repeatedly beats the Met Office at its own game."
global colding. when all the experts said, "global warming is HERE, deal with it", I immediately mentally checked my closet to see if I had many jackets, hats, gloves!!
[when all experts agree, *RUN* the other way!]
we all could indeed have to be told to burn dirty coal and to burn soft gasoline, and to pollute the air, just to keep new york city from being Engulfed by ice!
there was a yutubefriend who replied back, after I wrote to him. he "specializes" in having a camera in his car and he records his trips around Moscow. He told me that he was "down" on Russia and that "how the people in the tiny villages are all stuck in the 1950s"!
Ah Yes, this is *not* a Russian problem!
[the wonders of seeing my own country through learning about Russia!]
It often is an "age" problem. here in the USA, here in the senior home where I live, there are people who live in the 1930s, 1950s too!
Item: I recently overheard, on the bus, one black [Negro] lady talking to her friend, she was lamenting about her uncle who was old and hardly ever leaves his cabin and he lives like it is still Segregation time, in the 50s, and he calls every white man "sir"!
the Russian people , who are in their 60s-plus, grew up under collectivist Communism and this is all that they are familiar with.
the Tender tips of the branch can bend, the older trunk is stiff.
Only a few seniors are still "growing" like that 85 year old man, here, who has internet fast access and is learning to paint, in the art class.
In fact I have read that many seniors consider any "change" to be a weakness, you broke before you bent!! This attitude saved Russia from the Germans in WW II. And America too.
and now-a-days software companies, I read, will lay off 25 year old people as it is found that in the ever-changing software world, one loses flexibility by 25 years; they rather only work with 18 year old people!!

wikileaks has a side to it no one notices!
there was a site somewheres, I read some of it recently, I cannot recall who this was, "dogpoet" maybe or some other activist.
This site, coupled with other people's writings, leads me to post my "idea" here.
"they" were writing about the TPTB people having all of their "dirty laundry" coming out into the open for all to read and to know about.
"the time of the hiding, of all these Lizard people, is over, everything will now Be Known To All"!
I hear hands clapping!
"joy joy, *finally* these leaders will get "theirs".
a very sharp sword cuts both ways, and this is the Topic of my little "talk"!
How about *you*?!
all your secrets and hidden crud will come out too, all of it!!
soon, if these people are right, and they talk of angels and Guides Opening all of humanity at the end of the age, why *your* life will also be Leaked out. everyone that knows you will know all about you, from your babyhood onwards. Perhaps every thought too, thoughts that, since they are only thoughts, they will never be known.
Now, they will be!!
do not please act like the old testament people who want to judge the TPTB "Lizards", severely.
the old testament likes the words, "judgment, punishment, revenge, righteousness.
but Jesus saved the woman from the well of Samaria!
He tempers the old testament with Love, mercy, understanding, goodness, beauty. healing, compassion.
Someone will have to hold the hands of the TPTB people, after they die, and help them heal and repent and then heal of their ego-greed ways!
[I once, out of body, was directed to enter a "eastern-Muslim-type-of-building" to help the patient, a difficult patient awaken and to be healed and helped. they told me he was "ready". I entered a dark room to see a ruined man on a bed, bloody face from his death Posture. I recognized him from the News, here is the soul who was the leader of Iraq, and the military invaders found him hiding in a underground bunker, then he was executed. yes, even HE is qualified to be Compassioned and to be saved; probably his brothers will be next!!]
see, the TPTB people are also us, you and me! what is the difference between a Banker mogul who steals from the people and a little old lady at the senior home who steals four "take a number for the drawing" tickets, at Thursday bingo, so that she can get a better chance to win the $5. [a true event!!]
every one of us has done, in tiny amounts, the very very same sins as these "Lizard" people in power, in governments and businesses!!
---and all of this will come out soon enough, the person you slept with, the things you stole, the parties you ruined by your bitterness, all and each of us is a small "Mafia", a TPTB, in some way! the Bible says that all of us have sinned and no one escapes this fate.
"repent now", the preacher says....."become saved and through Grace will thee become whole"!
be it known that each and every deed and thought and feeling will soon be known to all and even be engraved upon your face, after you die, as it is in your soul and in the akashsa records!!
so now here on earth as the Pluto transit moves through the earth sign, the "wikileaks" will spread ands spread so that all the hidden stuff will come out. But, as i write, no one will be spared this unveiling! you and me will have our very own wikileaks!
so please do not be too "hard" on the TPTB people, after all, they are us, and part of the Vine of the Christ, leaves and branches on the One Vine. we all cannot get to the highest heaven, probably, until ALL of us are ready to enter. so mercy, please, on those Who Stumble and let Power's tempting calls corrupt them!

the Underlighting from the sun.
when the sun rises into a clear sky, when the sun is near the horizon, its rays can cast light under clouds to the west, from underneath these clouds and illuminate them so. Holds for sunsets too.
Looking west, tallahassee, florida.

the Wiki Leaks!
I would not want to be that Julian Assange guy! I realized just now that either by direct action, of the leaks, or in side effects, the row of dominoes tipping, that he could end up being either the cause of a major war or of even WW III!
Just imagine Pakistan vs India, where Leaks get one side to do something
"ballistic" [pun intended!]
or watch, say, the Russians and the Americans go Ballistic!
I, myself, would NOT want to wake up in the afterlife to find out that my little "falling snowflake down the mountain: caused a major war, the "avalanche, at the bottom of the valley, burying a whole village, was caused by that one falling flake!"

A Eugene, OR Painted Masterpiece
Shortly after Jerry died, this mural appeared on the wall of the Circle K store on High Street. The picture you see here is from the front page of the Register Guard on August 16,1995.
The mural itself was painted by Creswell artist Jim Evangelista.
Unfortunately, over the course of the next two years, area juveniles repeatedly vandalized the mural in various ways. Graffiti, paint splashes, etc. Each time Jer's visage was desecrated, the artist faithfully repaired the damage.
He even went so far as to meet with several of the vandals to figure out why they were so intent on destroying the painting.
Newspaper accounts of the discussions said that they basically resented what Jerry Garcia represented. At any rate, the damage seemed to abate for awhile. However, by the summer of 1997, Evangelista finally gave up his constant repairwork and redid the painting on the wall.
Anyone passing the Circle K these days will see a mural of a dark, star filled sky. Somewhere near the center of the new painting is one particular star, burning more brightly than the rest.
I, freestone, add to this quote.....
ah yes, this is that mural that i once wrote about. a figure of a grand old hippie and the kids told him that they disfigured this mural over and over again because its presence so so belittled them and invalidated their own selves! they have so little self as it is and probably they all see Jesus and the church in the same way, just another authority figure to tell them what the F..K to do with their lives! too too too many people now are telling them what to do with their lives!
---so destroy *anything* "larger" then they are!!

Dutch Catholic Church Faces 2,000 Abuse AllegationsUpdated: 36 minutes ago

AOL News (Dec. 10) -- The Roman Catholic Church is still struggling to cope with the fallout of sex abuse scandals from Germany to the U.S., but it now faces a flood of damaging new allegations from the Netherlands.
According to a report from an independent commission, almost 2,000 Dutch people have reported being sexually and physically abused by priests when they were children -- a huge number for a country with only 4 million
"religious abuse": I know of many young people who were raised to be Fundamentalists, now they grow up to be the hell raisers and they hate all religion, vaccinated against it Real Good, for life!

letter to the editor.
"are you ready for the coldest [ maybe ] winter in 100 years?"!
Here I sit, thinking about my years of having great interest in the weather, majoring in meteorology here at FSU, in the 60s.
I come originally from a tiny town in upstate new York. My father, part Indian, was a weather "prophet, predictor", the only man that I knew who would stop his shop work to go out and watch an oncoming storm!
between this background and my readings of the South American winter, last July, where I saw videos of whole tropical rivers clogged with the dead bodies of alligators and tropical fish, the near Antarctic cold killed them all, coupled with the bitter winters in Europe, plus my perceptions of a "stuck-in-a-holding-pattern jet stream; lead me to be Afraid!
Afraid! Not fearful, but "afraid" of what *our* winter could be like this year!!
A winter to come that will make last January's winter be tropical mild in comparison!
[I will not use anymore the phrase, "global cooling", i will from now on use the term, "global colding"!]
So here could be three to four months of a winter where a "good day" will see a high temp of 50 degrees! "oooh, it got up to 45 today, a heat wave"!
A winter where not only snow could be seen, snow could cover the streets to stop all travel and commerce for a solid week or more!
A winter where the Tallahassee council might actually *have* to consider whether to buy snow plows and road salting equipment, for next winter!
so people. get ready.
1...car batteries. weeks of 5 above to 25 above, day after day after week, will severely test your car battery. The shops will be so busy, if yours fail, that you will not get to where you want to go for days!
2...your home furnace. [note that I did not write "stove"; they are too too wimpy for what could be coming!] Is it ready to heat your home where for days and weeks the temp might be 30 with a 30 MPH wind and a low temp of 8 above?
3...you! Do you have clothes that are comfortable for an Ohio or Indiana
winter? For that could be our winter, people!! 5 to 20 inches of snow this winter, with most days seeing a high temp of 35 to 50 degrees, or LESS! Can you go outdoors comfortably, at 10 above with a 20 MPH wind?!
Get Ready NOW...clothes, blankets, whatever....
4..stockpile food! suppose there is an ice storm of 2 inches of rain at 28 degrees, you might no have electric for over a month!
Five inches of snow on the streets will close the groceries for a week!
5...owners of warehouses: if you have a sprinkler system, beware that unless you keep your building heated, the pipes could freeze! Then when they thaw, all your goods will be flooded!
6...the homeless: if you like to sleep in the woods, you should have a sleeping bag that you would feel comfortable sleeping in, in the Carolina winter mountains! Otherwise, go to the city shelters!
8...your tender plants: maybe do not do a thing about them, just let them die, unless you want to do a "heroic effort"! Tallahassee will be Cleansed of all Exotics and warm climate invasives; back to basic native very cold hardy plants. our plant hardness Zone 9 might become a Zone 7 or even a southern Zone 6, this year! [southern Pennsylvania!]
7...a room Humidifier will keep the air moister when you sleep so that your inner nose will not dry out. keeps many colds away.
In short, *if* I am right, Tallahassee could have a December to April that will be the equivalent of a city in Kentucky or south Ohio, this coming winter! So get ready now. And..do not curtail your outdoor activities just because you wake up and see a "25 degrees" on your thermometer, thinking that you can wait until a warmer day to do your chore: there will *NOT BE* many warmer days, between now and April 15th!! So go out and Embrace Cold, learn to love Cold!

"death and afterlife",
"Astral Travel Experiences",
"Astral Projection",someone suggested that I use these concepts in my blog.
so here they are.
they actually might be better used in my other blog where some of my dream experiences are written up, at, but I do not want "duplicate content"!

[from my flickr photos]
the mural at the Homeless shelter. sometimes there are nearly 200 people here a night, in the winter. a good shelter.
"ALONE ALL ALONE, NO ONE CAN MAKE IT THERE ALL ALONE".
No one can make it to heaven, our true
home, by ourselves, it takes Spirit in our hearts, with Jesus there. Then the Angels and Guides, with Jesus, will help us go Home.
Thus, the secret of the homeless is that all of us are homeless without Spirit in our hearts, and our true Home is in heaven!
the Homeless High IQ man!
---that is my subject title.
One day recently at a bus stop, on the corner 20 feet away, I saw a homeless man with a sign, begging for money. I went over to talk to him.
He seemed to be very intelligent and he told me that he, a veteran, was trying to get money to live on while he was trying to get the vet people to approve his disability case. his wife is working on her Masters and when she gets it, they will move to a more liberal state for better benefits.
the bus then came. I knew the bus driver, I told him about this veteran. *then* this driver tells me, "oh *that* guy! he was on my bus yesterday and he fell asleep and his bag fell onto the floor and the contents of his soda ran over the floor and the ALCOHOL smell reek filled the bus. See, I notice him begging all over town, but *only* in areas 300 feet from a liquor store!! he is a deep alcoholic, probably this is why they do not give to him benefits"!
sigh. his God, this man, is Alcohol. So many homeless people "do" drugs and drink. And that wonderful Shelter, where the mural is, above, has that saying, inferring that one should live life not "Alone", and what is meant here is that one should have SPIRIT, of some manner, in one's life.
otherwise one is indeed Homeless. True Homelessness is so even if one is the CEO of a huge company and lives in a nice home on the good side of town! The Tombstone is on everyone's road of life and then what will happen *after* you pass that Stone?!
One without a soul, one with no Spiritual life, is Homeless.
