Poem Friday – What Ever You Do Don’t Let Texas Be Blue

I have not done a Poem Friday in some time but I needed something like what is going on in this Country to get me off my posteria and write, because I can. Its about ” Seeing something and saying something.”

 

The Great State Of Texas proudly blood Red

Economically wealthy and successful and the best is ahead

 

Proud of their President, their Flag and the American Flag to

Proud of their history, the heritage, there hospitality genuine and true

They love and show great respect for their vets and military men

For those who fought for USA they will always stand up and defend

I have always been so impressed when they take time to shake their hand and  personally comend

 

I know the wealth and beauty of this State is the envy of many 

The door should be open to those who share this pride not just any

 

Those from the States  and cities that are blue

Stay there, clean up their mess,  get your politicians to work as they should do

 

They appear to be unhappy, mean, and vicious it seems

It appears that they have lost their  spirit and their American Dreams

 

The blues cause unrest, bringing the ‘Reds’ down in their sights

This State is a great state with no need for anti establishment fights

 

It does not need the face covered Antifas, climate changers, destroying property into the nights

Freedom of speech as it should be  is a Texans right

 

Texas they have the right constitutionally to bear Arms

They need Guns to protect themselves, their land and their Farms

 

So Blues if you come to Texas to stay

You need to think about changing to red and live the Texan way

 

I am neither a Republican or Democrat in fact I  live in Australia that is true

I stay in Texas for the months that they allow and leave when due

But I have to say be careful  and “What ever you do don’t let Texas be Blue”

 

 

 

Go Vote for your President you need him and he needs you

Some Useful Home Hints – 03/26/2018

 

Perfect barbecued  Asparagus – When barbecuing asparagus, thread a wooden satay stir (soaked in water first) through the top and bottom of several pieces at a time, they are much easier to turn and won’t disappear through the gaps in the grill.

2. Dip your toes for a better sleep This I am not sure I would do but if it helps with sleep I am all for it – If you find it hard to sleep in the hot, humid weather especially if there is no air-conditioning, a bowl of iced water by the bed and cold  your feet in it when you are wakeful as it helps regulate the whole body temperature.

 

3. Prevent a clogged sealant cartridge – After using a sealant cartridge  plug the nozzle with blue tac and it will prevent drying out and clogging.

4. Prevent garden mould – To control sooty mould on gardenia and citrus, vigorously shake 250 ml vegetable oil and 60 ml dishwashing detergent in a screw top jar until white then use 2 tablespoons of the emulsion in a liter of water to spray your plants thoroughly. Good for pumpkin and cucumber plants I would say to stop that mould establishing itself.

 

5. Recycle the scoop – Recycle the plastic scoops that come in the laundry powder. This is great a measure to use in dry goods and dry pet food. Make sure you wash it well first though and leave it in the sun a while so it looses its perfume.

6. fashion tip – To remove gum from your clothes, cool the gum using an ice-cube then flick it off with a butter knife.

This is called the blue field entoptic phenomenon.

Poem Friday on Saturday – 08/15/2015 – You Are All The Colors Of The Rainbow

IMG_1733

You are All the colors of the Rainbow
Author:- Me his Mom

The yellow of the rainbow is the light of the sun
He was born with strength, a smile, his life just begun

The red of the rainbow is that of fire
He was born with determination and courage I admire

The blue of the rainbow is that so true
He was born loyal, impressive to those who knew

The green of the rainbow is natures beauty
He was born with the love of water, to enjoy is his duty

The many other colors of the rainbow to me is love
This kid is an honor, now a man of 43, who I respect, a gift from above

Happy birthday Jamin, you are special because I say-so
You make me proud because to me you are all the colors of the rainbow

5. Danish scientists have discovered that those with blue eyes have just one ancestor. Apparently a genetic mutation took place somewhere between 6000 and 10,000 years ago that led to the existence of every blue eyed person walking on the planet today.
“Originally we all had brown eyes” University of Copenhagen professor Hans Eiberg says. “But a genetic mutation affecting the OCA2 gene in our chromosomes resulted in the creation of a ‘switch’ which literally turned off the ability to produce brown eyes”. The switch reduced melanin production in the iris, and DNA testing shows this happened at the same point for everyone with blue eyes, while people with brown or green eyes show a lot more variation in that part of their DNA
