It’s Too Darn Hot

*As noon approaches these days, my brain turns to mush and sweat instantly sheens my skin when I walk outside. Just walking from the front door to the car flushes my face; I am not a hot weather person. But, the heat is on, and it’s too darn hot with no relief in sight. I’m watering the potted plants every other day, but for some of them that does not seem to be enough. Even those full-sunlight ones look miserable…We’re down to once a week sprinklers. Without rain further restrictions will apply. Some people in the neighborhood gave up watering weeks ago.

*Did you watch the Republican debate Monday night? It bugs us to pieces that politicians – all politicians – cannot give direct answers. They immediately spout their speel, making every answer sound the same, as though their brains are locked on a few sentences. Like they are incapable of unplanned speeches or are afraid to ad lib. They say what they think we want to hear – the same o’ same o’. Why can’t they get it through their heads that we want real answers, not party lines? What do they really think? What will they really do? The generalization of every “plan” drives me crazy. If an issue is so important and they have had years to think about solutions, then why can’t they give us their step-by-step solutions? They don’t know. They either have no ideas or they are keeping them close to the vest so no one steals them. Pundits and their blah-blah rhetoric just complain and whine without putting anything substantive out there for us to study. Geez, they are nothing but broken records!!

*I am really tired of hearing children cry in stores and restaurants. It’s like their parents are ignoring their need to eat or nap. They go shopping or make dinner plans at times that do not jive with their children’s inner schedule. Then they get mad at their children for crying or having a fit. Children come first, otherwise what is the point in being a parent? Also, most children under age 4 cannot sit through a whole movie. Some young children do not like the dark, the big screen, the scary people/monsters, and/or the loud noises. Why don’t parents of toddlers and babies get babysitters or leave them with grandmas or aunts?

*Last week I took my oldest son, Jud, and his darlin’ girls, Ripley(3) and Harley(9 months) to the Landa Park pool. I wore one of my one-piece bathing suits that fit, but it was a couple years old. As we were leaving, I pulled at the leg openings and all the elastic went out, leaving my suit with a flappy bottom. Soooo, Monday I went looking for a new suit and found one at JCP’s, although there was slim-pickings. It is not a bikini but a two-piece  and is totally unlike my other suits. The top covers my midrift and the bottom has a little flouncy skirt; you buy them separately so the fit is near perfect. I have not worn it yet, except to show Danny, who liked it. 🙂

    The Best Way In Cooling Down Is by Having Nice Thoughts.

    The best way / having nice thoughts is in knowing ones self
    The spiritual self./ Not the material that abused by politicians.

    On PC search put (words of peace). On site a large selection
    of videos which Prem Rawat talks of meditation /// that of one
    turning of the sesses inwards // thus experience the spiritual
    self // the heaven within. Not of a heaven as beyond the clouds
    where one follows the “Yellow Brick Road” till they reaching 0z
    NO NO NO NONO NO // not a heaven of illusion/ but an heaven
    of reality /true spiritual experience /thus not ideas /not of belefs
    but clear understanding practical experience / in ones knowing.

    A early 4thof july celebration / such indeed the people of America
    need / their having celebration.Ten years of cruel dire republican
    govt having brought the nation unto its knees ( not in prayer ) BUT
    dispair. A removal of banking regulation BY THE REPUBLICANS
    removed all safegurads against banking fraud / thus with banking
    regulation removed // the bank doors being opened unto banking
    fraud on levels the world having never known. Within a short time
    bringing a banking crisis as expected came the banking collapse.

    $Billions upon $billions lost // millions made unemployed // many
    many poor souls where having lost both home as their life savings.

    The sad fact the republicans did not win the election that put them
    into govt. // Such achieved through voting fraud / aided by a corrupt
    supreme court ruling // taking true election victory from democrats
    and giving such unto the republican party /which at such times was
    under the control of extreme right wing halbaked religious fanatics.

    George declared himself as gods annointed whom would laed an
    holy crusade against muslims. // True to his word // he abandoned
    international law as domestic law // using defence of freedom / the
    defence of democracy // as an cover to invade nations / committing
    appalling acts of inhumanity / more USA puppet govts put in place.

    The problems for democrats in coming to govt were / as are being
    immense. Damage by republicans in govt was / severe to extreme
    t’will take time having / as restore govt depts back in working order.

    It for all americans in learning their lesson // that voting fraud brings
    a dire outcome. // An individuals vote never again just being ignored
    where seen as having no value // that a few powerful / can abuse the
    system // where American people be treated as mere sheep to fleece
    their children but seen as lamb for the slaughter // in having no rights.

    Once t’was through having a honest vote GOVT’s were put in place as
    servants to the people’s. Through political corruption as fraud / it being
    politicians have reversed the situation// they are no longer the servants
    of the people. // The people through political corruption having now but
    become servants of Govt. The Republicans in main in having stripped
    voters of rights // in receiving justice // where such rights being abused.

    If America’s to recover it needs not be a divided nation // but all under a
    umbrella of / peace / honesty / decency. Where there a return in having
    true freedom // true democracy. / Once again that american people can
    stand proud // welcomed by all nations. // Not isolated / but honored by
    all humanity / again a nation as a beacon of light for all seeking justice.
