What Are We Thinking Australia? Your Freedoms are Threatened

Interesting Australia and New Zealand.  I do not approve of violence or prejudice in any way for those who want to live and enjoy the pleasures of our respective countries. For those who don’t live and respect our culture or speak it,  should not be here it is an insult to who we are and those who fought for for those who died for our freedoms.

Most of the population of both our countries will not be aware of what is going on behind our backs so that is why you need to watch this video. The future of your children of this country is in jeapody. 

Everyone needs to listen to the video to realize what we will be up against in the future of our countries. BE AWARE!

This of course is my opinion and my right to free speech.

Did You Know – 10/23/2017

  1. For a mere $11.99, you can find out if anyone has ever died in your home. Go to – Diedinhouse.com and it will reveal whether there has ever been any documented deaths at your address by giving you a full report that includes names, dates and causes of death. Also it will let you know if it has been home to meth labs, arson, or murders.

2. If you want to remember someones name – Associate their name with their job. When you first meet them ask them what is their occupation. It gives you something to associate their name with and a better chance of remembering it.

 

3. Orca’s brains have an enlarged limbic node, which deals with emotions and memories. Even taking into account the size difference of a human brain, an orca’s brain contains more of the spindle cells that process empathy and social patterns. This result could be evidence that Killer whales could be more empathetic than we humans. I guess if you meet one in the ocean one would like to think this is true.

 

Alex Stafie, 5, and Wallace Scherer, 92, make sack lunches for the homeless during an activity at Providence Mount St. Vincent home for older adults in West Seattle.

4. At the  Providence Mount St. Vincent in Seattle there is a pre school inside a nursing home.  “We wanted a living, vibrant community; to make sure that this was a place where people came to live, not die,” says Charlene Boyd, an administrator at the center. Bringing children in was a natural solution.

Socializing across generations has also been shown to increase the amount of smiling and conversation among older adults, according to one Japanese study from 2013.

These intergenerational interactions also enhance children’s social and personal development as many of the parents will attest. kids are prone to feel more comfortable around those with disabilities and impairments of all kinds than their peers who lack such experiences.

 

5. Tulips are not native to the Netherlands – Tulips had been cultivated in Turkish gardens for years and there were over a thousand types of tulips by the time Europe discovered the flower.  In the late 16th century tulips were brought to Europe by the Austrian ambassador to Turkey, then known as Constantinople.  From Austria tulips made their way to the Netherlands where the Dutch became leaders in producing prized specimens.

By the 1630’s tulip speculation, or tulipmania, was rampant throughout the Netherlands and both rich and poor were speculating in the tulip trade, similar to the stock market in modern times.  In 1637 the tulip market crashed leaving many Dutch penniless.

Despite the crash the Dutch continued to cultivate these colorful flowers and the Netherlands still remains the chief source for tulip bulbs.

Poem Friday 04/17/2015 – They Would Put Me In Jail

IMG_1240

At the races and only just in their 20’s how fabulous they look
My Mum and Dad so young and happy, great times together they took

They could never have imagined what the future could bring them both
My Dad died rather young my Mum with Dementure no sign of improvement or growth

For those loved ones who were close and have passed this way
Watch over my Mum. May she join you? She is in a place she does not want to stay

She says “I am trying to be brave but my heart hurts so much”
With a mountain of tears she sobs on my shoulder, for goodness sake Dad come get her, she needs your strong touch

Like many, in this world Dementure takes a hold
To a home they are sent – “they will take care of you she is told”.

They lose their home, their identity and in her case her dog
They give them drugs to ease the pain, so their mind is calmed into a fog

Yep my Mum she has lost her dog the one thing she holds dear
My beautiful Mum says “I never dreamt in my lifetime I would be in a place like here

Mum is now going 95 and wishes to die each day
Surely we have the right to decide for ourselves, how and which way

I feel her pain, her emptiness, her loss of pride
A home of many vacant minds, there is no place for her to hide

Why is it that the law will not bend?
Because society decides, with no quality of life, we must live right to the end?

She is now not safe, within a few weeks, to be on her own
The length of her future or the quality is surely not known

God show mercy and bring her some peace
Help her hurt go away, make it cease

She asks – “Is this purgatory for me here right now?” I don’t know
Not being a Catholic, I know you are a great person Mum so Heaven is where you will go
So when you get there give my Dad my Brother a big hug and you can from me say hello

“Can you give me a pill that could put me asleep permanently and not fail”
“Mum I so would but its illegal and they would put me in Jail”

The great pain I feel for her and the many tears I shed
I think we all need to consider for us what lies ahead

They say we choose our parents before we enter this earth
Well we should have the right to leave as we chose our birth

Well Mum I am no longer with you in person and I know you are lonely and becoming frail
Euthanasia is an illegal option, my dear Mum I would if I could but they would put me in jail

3. The 2nd president of the United States (John Adams) and 3rd president of the United States (Thomas Jefferson) both died within just a few hours apart of each other on the same exact day of July 4th 1826. They are the only two presidents to die on the same day of the same year.

4. Barbers at one time combined shaving and haircutting with bloodletting and pulling teeth. The white stripes on a field of red that spiral down a barber pole represent the bandages used in the bloodletting.

5. Coral (pro osteon) has molecular architecture and chemistry similar to human bone and so it can be used to replace bone grafts, helping bones heal faster. 150-200 pounds of it can sustain hundreds of graphs

Jack LaLanne, Founder of Modern Fitness Movement

Jack LaLanne, the fitness guru of many years died yesterday at the age of 96.

It’s an era in the fitness world that has ended. He was such a showman and an inspiration, a Godfather of fitness and who knows, saved thousands or even millions of people’s lives by getting them off their backsides and out into the world of exercise.

Jack will be known for his amazing sayings. Most of you, myself included, were probably not even aware that they were his words.

Here are some of those phrases.

Your health account is your wealth account

Your waistline is your lifeline

Exercise is King, nutrition is Queen, put them together and you’ve got a kingdom.

Don’t exceed the feed limit.

The food you eat today is walking and talking tomorrow.

Ten seconds on the lips and a lifetime on the hips.

Better to wear out than rust out

Do–don’t stew.

People don’t die of old age, they die of inactivity.

First we inspire them, then we perspire them.

You eat everyday, you sleep everyday, and your body was made to exercise everyday.

Work at living and you don’t have to die tomorrow.

I can’t die, it would ruin my image.

If man makes it, don’t eat it.

If it tastes good, spit it out.

Your health account is like your bank account: The more you put in, the more you can take out.

It’s not what you do some of the time that counts, it’s what you do all of the time that counts.

Make haste slowly.

Eat right and you can’t go wrong.

If you go to his website http://www.jacklalanne.com/ you are able to see what a great motivator he was.

Poem Friday – That Last Hug Was A Goodbye

That Last Hug Was A Goodbye
Author – Lesley Voth

My beautiful brother was here the other day
So good to see him, looking happy and healthy in a kinda glowing way

I did not know it and nor did he
How special, that time, was going to be

Barry my brother died two days ago
Leaving us breathless, wounded, dealing our hearts a heavy blow

If he had faults, I know of none
He was kind and thoughtful loved by everyone

Megan his wife will have great memories of times together
He would Go anywhere, venture in all kinds of weather

He had a love for sailing and fishing too
He loved just being there with his boys, they made his sky sunny and blue

I am sure his Grandchildren will be wondering why
Their Poppa is not there to laugh and play with them, soothe them when they cry

Not a bad bone, didn’t judge, never hurt a fly
We all love him and will miss him but God needs him more I guess that is why

As your sister my dearest brother
I will miss your smile, your laugh, which is like no other

Your passing has taught me one thing, to cherish each second, I know I will try
Because I did not realise that last hug was not a Hello it was a Goodbye
