“Wednesdays child is full of woe…”    

   “And, then,  on December 16, 1773, after being stood up by the Governor, who’d promised to meet with them concerning the repealing of the much-hated “Stamp Act” taxation on their tea, the group known as “The Sons of Liberty”, who had some now-famous American patriots with them, one of which was Paul Revere, and with local patriotic citizens helping them, dressed up as Mohawk Indians, then, under cover of darkness, they split up into 3 groups, each charged with one ship, and went aboard those ships filled with tea, and threw the tea into the waters of the Boston harbor.  No one was harmed, and only one was arrested.  The relationship between the British government, and the Colonies never recovered after that, and the First Continental Congress was formed, and met, about a year later…and, the rest is History.  More tea, children?”

   “…A girl on shore, many tears will shed
For the one who lies on the ocean bed.
Above his heart the whale will hiss,
And his pallid lips the fish will kiss.”  ~George N. Allen~ 1850

                                        

So they cast lots, and the lot fell upon Jonah.

Then said they unto him, Tell us, we pray thee, for whose cause this evil is upon us; What is thine occupation? and whence comest thou? what is thy country? and of what people art thou?

And he said unto them, I am an Hebrew; and I fear the Lord, the God of heaven, which hath made the sea and the dry land.

10 Then were the men exceedingly afraid, and said unto him. Why hast thou done this? For the men knew that he fled from the presence of theLord, because he had told them.

11 Then said they unto him, What shall we do unto thee, that the sea may be calm unto us? for the sea wrought, and was tempestuous.

12 And he said unto them, Take me up, and cast me forth into the sea; so shall the sea be calm unto you: for I know that for my sake this great tempest is upon you.

13 Nevertheless the men rowed hard to bring it to the land; but they could not: for the sea wrought, and was tempestuous against them.

14 Wherefore they cried unto the Lord, and said, We beseech thee, OLord, we beseech thee, let us not perish for this man’s life, and lay not upon us innocent blood: for thou, O Lord, hast done as it pleased thee.

15 So they took up Jonah, and cast him forth into the sea: and the sea ceased from her raging.

16 Then the men feared the Lord exceedingly, and offered a sacrifice unto the Lord, and made vows.

17 Now the Lord had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.” [Jonah 1:7-17 KJV]

   I know the world seems filled to overflowing with misinformation, and downright lies, these days, including distorted information on groups such as the original “Sons of Liberty”.  Their chosen title came from a Irish-born Colonel named Isaac Barre`, who coined it while defending them in Parliament, who called them “…these sons of liberty…”.  And, yes, I know that even Johnny Tremain is a fictional character from a book by Esther Forbes.  However, there’s a big difference between what is termed, “literary license”, or even “artistic license”, and outright malicious spreading of falsehoods, that are among those the spreaders are guilty of, themselves.

   So, let me be among those who take absolute joy in burying at least some of those falsehoods.  I choose to focus on the hypocrisy of leftists who denounce the methods used by the “Sons of Liberty”. In the accounts of that early patriot organization I noticed that, in the beginning, their acts of defiance against the British government’s “Stamp Act” taxation reminded me of the shouts and slogans, and even the violent acts, of none other than those who now oppose this current Trump administration.  The proclamations of “resistance”, which included their usage of ‘mob rule’; the use of violent acts against anyone they perceived to be against what they believed was ‘right’; the use of fear-inducing methods such as ‘tar and feathering’, to intimidate their opposition.

 Methods were adopted by the group in order to try and gain what they wanted: an end to ‘Taxation without representation” by the British government.  It ended by bringing about the permanent split between the British crown, and the American colonists, and the beginning of the American Revolutionary War against Britain, with the American’s fighting for their right to rule themselves as a separate country from Britain.  Yet, those involved in the so-called ‘resistance’ to president Trump and his administration have adopted tactics so similar to those of the “Sons of Liberty”, it’s laughable to hear them also condemning those tactics when it comes to the “Sons of Liberty”.

 What I’m saying is: it’s time to bury the hypocrisy used by the leftists.  If those violent, vicious tactics were good enough to be used by them, then by definition they were good enough to be used by the first American patriot organization, fighting for liberty against the tyrannies of the British government.

   Here’s a perfect example of “the pot calling the kettle black”, in the case of a leftist tv personality:

  “I abhor hypocrisy.”~Don Lemon~
Really, Don?

  Here’s another example:

“I will use whatever position I have in order to root out hypocrisy. Democrats have strong moral values. Frankly, my moral values are offended by some of the things I hear on programs like ‘Rush Limbaugh,’ and we don’t have to put up with that.” ~Howard Dean~

Yet another “pot” calling “the kettle” black:

“The point is that there is tremendous hypocrisy among the Christian right. And I think that Christian voters should start looking at global warming and extreme poverty as a religious issue that speaks to the culture of life.” ~Al Franken~

   “You’re sooo black!”      “So are you!!!”

 

   For the record:  I disapprove of all violent tactics used by any organization in pursuit of their desired goals, be they the ancient “Sons of Liberty”, or be they the democrat party ‘resistance’ to the Trump admin.  “What’s good for the goose is good for the gander”!

   “We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.” ~Joseph Campbell~

“…and she keeps calling him back again…”

“Friday’s child is loving and giving…”                                            

 

 

  “I’ve just seen a face
I can’t forget the time or place
Where we just met
She’s just the girl for me
And I want all the world to see
We’ve met, mmm-mmm-mmm-m’mmm-mmm

Had it been another day
I might have looked the other way
And I’d have never been aware
But as it is I’ll dream of her
Tonight, di-di-di-di’n’di

Falling, yes I am falling
And she keeps calling
Me back again

I have never known
The like of this, I’ve been alone
And I have missed things
And kept out of sight
But other girls were never quite
Like this, da-da-n’da-da’n’da

Falling, yes I am falling
And she keeps calling
Me back again

Falling, yes I am falling
And she keeps calling
Me back again

I’ve just seen a face
I can’t forget the time or place
Where we just met
She’s just the girl for me
And I want all the world to see
We’ve met, mmm-mmm-mmm-da-da-da

Falling, yes I am falling
And she keeps calling
Me back again
Falling, yes I am falling
And she keeps calling
Me back again
Oh, falling, yes I am falling
And she keeps calling
Me back again”

“Tuesday’s child is full of grace…”            

   

 

 

  Speaking of Paul McC. and the song, “Hey, Jude”–this is a post in which I wrote:

  About the song, “Hey Jude”–in the Wiki article about the song, even though ‘f’aul gives numerous explanations as to whom he wrote it for, eventually, after so many people claimed that the song was about them, including John Lennon who told that to ‘f’aul, it finally lead to what now believe is the truth of the matter–‘f’aul told John that he actually wrote the song about HIMSELF–now, to me, that makes sense after also realizing that the name Jude can point to the one persona that ‘f’aul actually represents–Judas Iscariot, the traitor and betrayer of Christ–it fits ‘f’aul perfectly–and, once I read through those lyrics keeping that in mind, the words began making even more sense, especially when I read that people, including John Lennon, also speculated that the lyrics that tell Jude “to go and get her”, along with “you’re waiting for someone to perform with”, might point to the fact that he’d met Linda Eastman, and wanted to go after her, but hesitated due to being engaged to Jane Asher–so, with those ideas in mind, it made those lyrics fit the narcissistic ‘f’aul to a proverbial “T”–conceited, arrogant, self-centered, and the betrayer–so, he wrote the song with himself in mind–how apropos.”     https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hey_Jude

        

 

  I wrote this, concerning what happened to Paul:

     “I agree–he was and will always be St. Paul. 🙂Unfortunately, due to involvement of an org. like Tavistock I fear this goes much deeper than his simply being uncooperative–removing him for not wishing to do as they wanted where LSD is concerned, with him giving the org. a tough time of it doesn’t seem like it would warrant their plotting and planning his demise for years, grooming some duplicate guy to take his place, paying all expenses for the guy to have plastic surgery, etc., then picking a date compliant with their occult beliefs, such as 9/11/66–no, it’s so much more sinister than it might appear–they went to way too much trouble here just to get some uncooperative artist out of their way–how did they know Paul would be so uncooperative years before they began trying to get them to use the LSD?–why was it so important to create another walking, talking image of Paul the way they did?–what was so vital about taking him out of their picture that they would spare no expense even years in advance? I know people don’t like talking about it, or thinking about it, but I have to say that from the research I’ve done, satanism is involved here, and those people live and die by their chosen religion–and, so do those who get in their way–but, with Paul, he seems to me to have been a marked individual, with them staking him out for destruction long before they moved in on him to destroy him in the end.”

                    

   I know that, due to how serious things have become, with the democrats[anarchists, communists AND democrats who side with them, together] raging against president Trump, and looking for any and all excuses to cause him trouble, and unsettle the rest of the country with their near-violent, as well as violent, antics, this subject must seem inconsequential in comparison.  But, I assure you, the reason it will never be inconsequential is because Paul was “eliminated” by the same organizations behind the unrest and even the violence taking place in this country over the election of a president that the ‘leftists'[anarchists, communists AND democrats who side with them] didn’t like.  It’s all tied together, behind the scenes.  It’s not what it appears to be on it’s surface.  The stakes are HIGH.  Higher than most of us can even imagine.  People have been murdered to keep this agenda on target over the decades, and even centuries.  It’s ugly.  It’s poisonous to the human soul.  It’s vileness will end by those who’ve sided with it losing their very lives to it.  Those helping to carry out this stealthy criminal agenda have no genuine idea that they can not win, and they will be killed, but not necessarily by their loyal opposition.  By their ‘own’–those the least expect to harm them–in turn, those who harm them, will be harmed by others of their ilk–this organization ‘eats it’s own’, so to speak–yet, it’s efforts will all be for naught in the end.  

Here’s why:

 “… We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.

18 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath has come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.”[Revelation 11:17-18 AKJV] [all emphasis, mine]  

 

   I love this song by John and Paul, “We Can Work It Out”, because it’s words contain the hope that we can all work things out if we’ll just try, even if that’s probably not going to happen.  I know one thing for certain.  Things will be worked out alright, but it might not be to the liking of all concerned.  However, this world does not belong to any of us.  It belongs to it’s Creator, God Almighty, and to His Son, our Lord and Savior, Jesus, the Christ, the Son of the Living God, through Whom God created it.  Those who oppose God, actually worship a very dead ‘god’, with the smallest ‘g’ imaginable.  Those who love God and love Jesus, His Son, love the LIVING GOD, who will never die, and who loves us so much He was willing to come down here, live a sinless life that we can not live, and die in our stead on that cross on Calvary–then rose back to life from the dead, in order to give us the chance to live eternally with Him, and with God the Father, through placing our faith in Jesus, and we will never  suffer ever again.  

     That’s the only case of “…And, they lived happily ever after…” that will come true. 

 

 

   This next video contains a wonderful discussion between Dr. James Fetzer, and author Nick Kollerstrom, of what happened to Paul back in the Fall of 1966.  It’s a horrible thing that they did to him, but the truth of what happened needs to come out.  What happened to Paul is also tied in with what’s taking place in this world today, since the same group of people who were responsible for what happened to him are behind the violence and mayhem we are now witnessing on our own city streets, and in and around our own airports, right now.  Both things might not appear to be linked together on the surface–but, that’s why the phrase, “Down the rabbit hole” is so often used when some people speak of them, and this type of subject–you need to look deeper than the surface–it’s like looking underneath a carpet under which someone’s dirt has been swept.  Oh, it’s hidden in ‘plain sight’ alright–their version of it anyway.  But, then, they play dirty.

Ah…The Ballet!

November 25, 2016

“Friday’s child is loving and giving…”      

       

And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.” [Colossians 3:17 AKJV] 

 

       

 

 

       

       

       

   Paul wrote that song–wow!  They gave it to Peter and Gordon to record, though, but wow, it was one of my very favorite songs!!!  The version in the video below is not the Beatles, or Peter and Gordon, though–I wish it was the Beatles!  It apparently isn’t, even if it does say “Original Demo”:

 

  I think I was born wanting to be a Ballerina.  I tried begging my mom to let me take lessons, but to no avail.  She was by then a single mom, with 3 small children to take care of, who had to move in with her parents, just so that we could survive.  So, when she landed a job working for PT&T[Pacific Telephone & Telegraph], and had to travel for her new job, from where my grandparents lived, all the way to San Francisco on all the days she worked, making entry-level pay more than likely, there was just no way she could afford for me to enroll in Ballet classes.

   However, even though I was only around 5 years old, I couldn’t quite let go of the dream.  So, often times, whenever photographs would be taken of me and my brother and sister, I could be found trying to strike a dancer’s pose.  When I see those photos now I cringe!  I looked a bit ridiculous, but I just couldn’t help trying to get my plug in for me to take dance lessons!  It never did any good, though.  My mom just could never afford it.  

  Mom always tried to get us fitted for the best shoes she could afford back then.  My favorite shoes to wear to school were black patent leather flats.  I always felt like a princess when wearing the ones mom got for me.  I was probably around 5 years old at the time.  However, I was also a terrible Tomboy, who loved climbing trees, riding my bike, and running ‘like the wind’ through the elementary school’s wide-open fields out behind my grandparent’s home.  So, at school I was ‘the little princess’, but at home, I was the ‘terrible Tomboy’.  

   That’s why my favorite ‘after school’ shoes were brown or black and white Saddle shoes.  My after school ‘uniform’ was always those Saddle shoes and a pair of Bermuda shorts–in case a tree needed climbing.  I also continually tried my ‘hand’ at doing what I considered ‘Ballet’ exercises.  I really had no idea what real Ballet exercises were, so I made some up for myself to practice diligently, and as often as I could.  One was to place my leg up on a dresser[if I could get it up that high!], or prop it up on any surface low enough for me to reach my leg up there, and then I’d practice touching my nose to my knee.  I had no idea if that was really an exercise a ballet dancer would ever benefit from, but I became very flexible after doing that over many years.  

     I could eventually touch both palms on the ground, never bending my knees, which helped my team win the Phys. Ed./Physical Training competition in Army Basic Training.  It enabled me to be capable of running ‘4-legged’ very fast without any stress on myself at all.  I still cringe at what happened at our graduation from Training party, though.  My Platoon Sergeant had noticed how flexible I was during that competition, so she told our Captain, who suddenly decided she wanted to see me run like that–in front of all the ladies/girls at our Platoon party.  So, not wanting to object to what the Captain wanted to see me do, I did that–I ran a few yards like that, much to her total surprise.  I guess she’d never seen anyone capable of doing that without bending their knees!

   Well, at least working on that particular exercise had earned me some measure of ‘fame’, albeit somewhat dubiously.  That was about the only exercise I’d ever done, though, that I thought a ballerina might do, to keep herself limber.  I never could ‘assume’ any real ballet positions. Once I learned what some of those ‘positions’ were, I was older and far less flexible, so I couldn’t quite get my stiffened muscles to cooperate enough so that I could place my feet and legs into those positions.  After I realized that it truly saddened me!  I had to admit that I was probably a bit too old to ever be capable of learning ballet, and also be capable of executing those important positions correctly.

 I think the saddest time came when I was about 7, and my mom took me and my little brother to the shoe store to be fitted for new shoes.  Mine were going to be brown and white Saddle shoes, and I was excited to get them.  Until, as I sat there, I saw a girl a bit older than myself, who was being fitted for shoes, too.  Only her new shoes were going to be Pointe shoes, or what most people simply think of as Ballet shoes.  When the clerk brought out her new Pointe shoes, my heart hit the ground!  I sat there watching her smile, then try them on, and I thought my heart would burst!     I didn’t want my mom to see how I felt, so I quickly averted my eyes back to the clerk who was bringing me my new Saddle shoes, and tried to put on a smile so mom wouldn’t notice how I really felt.  I may have loved my new Saddle shoes, but the shoes that the ballerina across the aisle was going to get were exactly what I’d always wanted all of my life.

“A Hard Day’s Night”? Elementary, My Dear Watson!

September 26, 2016  {edited by me on March 13, 2017}

“Monday, Monday…”

      I had originally posted a video containing the entire movie of “A Hard Day’s Night”, that showed the Beatles at their funniest, and most endearing.  This turned out to be the only way I ever got to see them for myself when I was about 14.  They charmed me back then, and again recently when I watched their movie on cable tv.  

   However, thanks to copyright issues, the channel who had supplied that video took it down, so all I can do is put up a video of the Beatles singing the title song from their movie:

 

.        So, what I will do instead, is post 5 videos of Sherlock Holmes movies from the 1930’s to 1940’s, starring that wonderful character actor, Basil Rathbone, and his lovable side-kick, Dr. Watson, played perfectly by Nigel Bruce–please enjoy! 

 

   I’m sorry the movies are not in order by year made, but I just found them on YouTube, and wanted to get them posted asap!

  Before I finish this blog entry, I just want to include a small clip of Paris as it seems to have become recently.  I mean, really?!  Anyone still saving for that Paris vacation?!

 The world’s most beautiful, and romantic, city being overrun to the point at which it makes Haight-Ashbury in San Francisco in 1967 actually look good!  What a shame!  And, why aren’t those responsible in those European govt.s being hauled up on charges for allowing this to take place, and bringing those people into Europe minus any plans to really help them?! 

       So, the Paris population is now having to deal with violence against themselves, including rapes, as well as the knee-high trash piles in their streets, being stolen from right and left, and whole families reduced to sleeping on mattresses on the city sidewalks, all due to having no place else to go!  It’s criminal, and those in charge of this debacle need to be hauled into court, and made to pay the penalties for allowing it all to take place!
