Poem Friday – 05/03/2019 – Megsy We Will Miss That Happy Wiggly Bum❤️

April has not been a good Dog Month for me

I guess it’s better  Gods plan is  that the future ahead we cannot see

 

My friends dog  Megsy, a lovable Staffy

Such a character and in her dragon jacket looked very sassy

 

Megsy passed away very peaceful indeed

Cancer had invaded her little body with great speed

 

Her last years  with Linda were wonderful for her and they made a good pair

A rescue  dog, for many years she lived with loneliness and despair.

 

She was a great addition to that skinner household

She was given so much love, and love Megsy returned ten fold

 

She was a comfort to Linda in times that were not so good 

Megsy could make her smile and laugh as only Megsy could

 

She was a social butterfly, Morning coffee at the local bakery she sat

Little bum and tail wagging with the glee of  the occasional pat

 

I will miss dear Megsy who was going deaf and a little blind

 Could hear my motorbike come down the road, meant to be deaf,  bear in mind

 

She gave us all pleasure and I am sure we gave her some

Megsy we will miss that happy Wiggly Bum

❤️

1. Some interesting facts about a few American political candidates. Well interesting for some and maybe not others.

220px-Abolafiapostera.  In 1975, Emil Matalik put himself forward as US Presidential candidate. He advocated a maximum of one animal and
one tree per family because he believed that there were too many animals and plant life on earth.

b. Louis Abalofia also put himself forward: his campaign poster featured a photo of him in the nude, with the slogan “I have nothing to hide.”

c. In the 1860s, financier George Francis Train ran for office with one item: the introduction of a new calender based
on his birth date. He stood for the position of Dictator of the United States, charged admission fees to his campaign rallies, and drew record crowds. He became a vegetarian and adopted various fads in succession. Instead of shaking hands with other people, he shook hands with himself, the manner of greeting he had seen in China.

2. When Helium is cooled to almost absolute zero (-460°F or -273°C), the  lowest temperature possible, it becomes a liquid with surprising  properties: it flows against gravity and will start running up and over the lip of a glass container!

 It will suddenly be able to do things that other fluids can’t, like dribble through molecule-thin cracks, climb up and over the sides of a dish, and remain motionless when its container is spun.

“If you set [down] a cup with a liquid circulating around and you come back 10 minutes later, of course it’s stopped moving,” says John Beamish, an experimental physicist at the University of Alberta in Edmonton. Atoms in the liquid will collide with one another and slow down. “But if you did that with helium at low temperature and came back a million years later,” he says, “it would still be moving.

3. If Betelgeuse (one of the brightest stars in Earth’s sky) would explode transiting from the red super giant stage to supernova then our sky would light continuously for two months. It can happen anytime, within a couple of thousand years, tomorrow or even now..Betelgeuse lies some 430 light-years from Earth. Betelgeuse has a luminosity about 10,000 times that of the Sun and its radius is calculated to be about 370 times that of the sun.

4. YOU can eat bugs! Try the “Eat-A-Bug Cookbook” by David George Gordon , 10 Speed Press. Don’t want to cook them yourself? Go to HotLix for all sorts of insect goodies! My favorites are “Cricket-lickit’s” – a flavored sucker with a real edible cricket inside. – See more at: http:.

Just A Reminder!

Sometimes with all the stress and the speed of life, most of us lose touch and forget the power of our words. 

For me its a rescue package.

Poem Friday – 12/07/2012 – 85 mph Highway

85-SpeedLimit-Texas_jpg_800x1000_q100

85 MPH Highway
Author: Lesley Voth

I had the pleasure last weekend to ride
To Travel to Austin TX, on my Harley, my love my pride

I rode with my Two friends Tim and Rich
The bikes went well, motors purred, ran smooth without a glitch

In and out of traffic at quite some speed
Wind in our face, felt good we all agreed

But I have to mention the new Highway
They built in Austin, 85 mph all the way

Man it felt good, road smooth, opened a new gateway
85 mph did we stay?, hell no, too good, speed limit we did not obey

Yes that road is a real beauty I would say
Riding down that 85 mph highway

Benjamin Franklin invented flippers for swimming in the year 1717 and was inducted into the international swimming hall of fame for the invention. They were originally wooden swim fins shaped like a lily pad and went on the hands. They were about 10 inches (250mm) long and 6 inches (150mm) wide and helped people to swim faster. Franklin’s swim fins were originally intended for use on a person’s hands. Shaped like lily pads or an artist’s paint palette, they helped attain greater speed with each stroke.
