Snowden – Hero or Traitor

rhpvc-dh

Just thought I would mention this movie on Edward Snowden (who was an employee of the NSA) that I went and saw on the weekend. Hero or Traitor? In my opinion he was a Hero. I want my Grandchildren to know who they are up against in their future. 

I remember years ago when I was about 25 yrs old I used to get these conspiracy letters from some fellow (can’t remember his name now) that lived in Western Australia.
Most of it I found disturbing, only to find as the years went by, all that he predicted came to fruition.
Example was smart cards, credit cards and ID cards that let big brother know your every move every day. Machines would photograph you evey-time you made a withdrawal or deposit. What you buy, where you buy, when you buy, what time you buy where you buy fuel what fuel station where you are traveling. That eventually your computers will be spying on you. You will have a number attached to your body and soul.
I ended up cancelling my subscription to this news letter as I found it far too depressing.
I personally had no idea that all that he wrote was either happening or eventually did happen.

You could say, “well I have nothing to hide it does not bother me” but after you see this movie I think that you may consider covering up the camera lens on your computer especially if you have it in the bedroom or hotel room.
Also know that your mobile phone is a tracking device for everyone in your family.

Oliver Stone directed this movie.Oliver Stone has also made many great movies like ‘Platoon’, ‘Born on the Fourth of July’,’Wall Street’ and many others.
The surveillance by the NSA that Snowden uncovered, was and is illegal. I believe him to be a very gutsy millennial who in my opinion was brilliant and thrust into a world that was bewildering, stressful and fearful for him to comprehend and not expose.

Look I believe everyone should go see this movie. It is compelling and parts of it will shock you into taking better care of your privacy.

If you can’t get to the movies then as soon as it comes out on video you need to get it.

Poem Friday – 06/06/2014 – Bottle Of Champagne For Two – Just Me And You

 

 

IMGP1218

I remember this day it was almost 10 years ago
I had red hair, new boobs, that’s how I know

My friend Cindy she passed away 2 days ago, in the night
Beautiful Cindy, pure delight, God Why? It is so not right

I am trying not to weep but the tears just flow
She would not want sadness, they say she is at peace, I know, I know

But my heart hurts and I cannot help that choking feeling
She wont be there when I get back to Australia, that’s what I am dealing

Picture 8

Outrigger Paddling she loved and that’s how we met
Some curly-headed mates in the picture above, we all had fun you bet

Picture 3

She loved the freedom the feeling of the ocean
She was talented, creative, her family, her devotion

She leaves behind Grandchildren who will not know her as we knew
But I know she has left them things to remember, as she bid adieu

Well Cindy, you have passed, and our lives move forward in great stride
Till we meet again for sure on the other side

When I get back to Australia I will buy a bottle of champagne for two
Will sit in your beautiful garden by the pool and drink it just me and you

How To Grow A Pineapple

IMGP1523

Grandkids at the Big Pineapple Australia

Now this is one way to grow a pineapple, but as someone who has taken her grandchildren , like 50 times to the ‘Big Pineapple’ in Australia and rode around the plantation in the electric train, they, being the plantation workers, explained a different method. This Aussie method I believe will produce a pineapple quicker than the system below. You could try both. I know it takes about 2 years for a pineapple to produce ripe fruit. So it is not something that will produce any time soon after planting. It would have to be an ornamental plant till it produces. 

The way I was told to plant them is cut the top off and leave it several weeks outside till the plant dries out at the base, then plant. Apparently it will produce quicker this way.

Not sure if that is totally correct so you could try the method below.

Live Without Regrets

Let none of the following regrets be your regrets. I personally try to have no living regrets as all my experiences have led me to many many places and met some fantastic people and led me to the life, the children and Grandchildren I have today.

I hope to have no dying regrets.

 

Top regrets of the dying

  • I wish I had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me
  • I wish I not worked so hard
  • I wish I had the courage to express my feelings,
  • I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends,
  • I wish I had let myself be happier.
