2009 - The End

Our Son1 came home.  Our Little Loo celebrated her third year as a Rocky Mountain Bride.  Our Son2 was a hero to his little girl and us all, slaying more dragons than anyone would want to meet in a lifetime.  Our Son3 joined the workforce, leaving a hole in the home.  Our Son4 stepped into his man-shoes, tightening the slack in the rope around the farm.  Our bammy passed away.  New chicks lived in the living room for 3 weeks, which was 2 weeks longer than they were cute.  I repeatedly prayed my way out of (vociferously) demanding an apology from everyone who voted for Obi.  I developed a compulsive interest in weaving ... which will follow me on January 1st to my new blog, NottaLotta Acres 2010, as this one ('07-'09) is officially retired.

If you've been following here or visiting here, do make a note of the new location and come along with me, where you can sign-up to follow again or just poke around from time-to-time, when the mood strikes.

Audio Sermon: Examine Yourself by Paul Washer

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.  He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.  He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.  Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.  Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.  Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.  Psalm 23

She's Gonna Weave

Having stuffed our humble home with mountains (okay, foothills) of fabric and yarn, it seems fitting that I do something to diminish the burgeoning stashes.  I don't knit all that fast, and I seem lately to be allergic to the sewing machine.  So I'm planning to weave.  I'm excited by the prospect and would have opened an Etsy shop by now, but common sense popped up out of nowhere, staying my flying internet fingers, and I'm going to learn first whether or not I can crank out anything more aesthetically pleasing than a clown's nap-mat.  There may just not be that many clowns feeling sleepy, so I shouldn't bother Etsy just yet.  Who is Etsy anyway?  Betsy-Wetsy's younger sister?

So on the heels of the hours of online studying which ate several of my recent days and turned my eyes a lovely, pastel pink, and having said, "Yes, I'm sure you can!" the necessary number of times, my Charles(not) and Son4 have made me a peg loom.  I won't unveil the finished product yet, because A) the stain is still curing so it's unassembled, and B) I want to wait until the first of the year.  But here are the bits:

If you're a US citizen and not all about looms, you might be asking, "What on earth?"  If, however, you're all about looms or live in the UK, this will have looked quite like the bits of a peg loom ... which is not a frame loom, erroneously called a peg loom by some in the US.  Or never mind and whatever.  That's my peg loom, and I'm stickin' to my story.  A couple of pegged frame looms are in my very near future.

That's all.  So I'll weave now.  "Oh?  Where are you going?" ← Newest joke around here.

Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.  ~Psalm 32:11

Rejecting All Else

Quoted by and from The Berean Call
December 22, 2009; Our Daily Updates

Accepting Christ Means Rejecting All Else

"The notion that we enter the Christian life by an act of acceptance is true, but that is not all the truth.  There is much more to it than that.  Christianity involves an acceptance and a repudiation, an affirmation and a denial.  And this not only at the moment of conversion but continually thereafter day by day in all the battle of life till the great conflict is over and the Christian is home from the wars.  To live a life wholly positive is, fortunately, impossible.  Were any man able to do such a thing it could be only for a moment.  Living positively would be like inhaling continuously without exhaling.  Aside from its being impossible, it would be fatal.  Exhalation is as necessary to life as inhalation.  To accept Christ it is necessary that we reject whatever is contrary to Him.  This is a fact often overlooked by eager evangelists bent on getting results.  Like the salesman who talks up the good points of his product and conceals its disadvantages, the badly informed soulwinner stresses the positive side of things at the expense of the negative."
--A.W. Tozer the expense of the soul.

From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.  ~Matthew 4:17

Smack the Penguin

Willow sent me this one.  Isn't it great, when your friends know exactly what will bring cheer to your life?

You really must take some time out of your day to SMACK THE PENGUIN.  [Directions: Load the Smack the Penguin site.  Click once to make the penguin leap; click again to make Yeti take a swing.]

Then, it'll complete my cheer, if you post your high scores in the comment section.  I'd offer a prize to the highest scorer, but the only good stuff I have, I won't share.  So whack the bird around, just for the fun of it ... or just because you're so stinking competitive that you MUST beat my own high score: 322.9 feet.  Of course, I only played for about 7 minutes, so if you become addicted to the game and send the penguin to the moon, people may suspect you're a sloth.  What a dilemma, eh?

For a plethora of penguin games, none of the rest of which I've played (so don't blame me if any are ucky), poke → here ← .

A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.  ~Proverbs 15:3

From The Viscount Monckton of Brenchley in Copenhagen

Lord Monckton Assaulted to the point of unconsciousness by EuroThug Police at Copenhagen

The Sonoran Weekly Review

"One of them began the now familiar technique of manhandling me, in the same fashion as one of his colleagues had done the previous day.

Once again, conscious that a police helicopter with a high-resolution camera was hovering overhead, I thrust my hands into my pockets in accordance with the St. John Ambulance crowd-control training, looked my assailant in the eye and told him, quietly but firmly, to take his hands off me.

He complied, but then decided to have another go. I told him a second time, and he let go a second time. I turned to go and, after I had turned my back, he gave me a mighty shove that flung me to the ground and knocked me out."

Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.  Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.  ~Psalm 119:104, 105

Pond Feathers

The close-ups may be
Worth clicking for englargements
If you're into pond feathers

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.  I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.  Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.  He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.  ~Psalm 91:1-4

December 7, 2009

A tale of destroyed documents, fraud, conspiracy and the misuse of millions of government dollars would seem to have all the juicy ingredients of a scandal that journalists would kill to cover. However, the mainstream media apparently doesn't think that Climategate is news. ABC News hasn't deemed the story newsworthy. Neither has CBS nor NBC. If Americans only got their news from the networks, they would not know about the global-warming fraud or would merely think there was a simple misunderstanding about what scientists meant in some vague e-mails.

...The networks found plenty of airtime to cover rumored family problems plaguing professional golfer Tiger Woods. Yet, even though there is climate-regulation legislation pending in Congress that could cost Americans trillions of dollars, network producers don't see anything newsworthy in a scandal exposing fraud in global-warming research. Such omissions make mainstream news complicit in the cover-up.

These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: a proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, an heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, a false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
~Proverbs 6:16-19

My Fish

I'm busy.
Lead them around by the snout to keep 'em fit, and click to feed them.

Gorton - Van - LJ - Milford - Melvern

What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?  For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.  Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet: All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field; The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.  O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!
~Psalm 8:4-9

FYI -- H1N1 Vaccine and Miscarriages

People's experiences with the H1N1 vaccine — not being tallied and reported — are surfacing, because the internet provides an avenue of information sharing by commoners.  Perhaps the internet will have to be shut down.

H1N1 Swine Flu Vaccine Miscarriage Stories From Pregnant Women

70 Heartbreaking Stories From People Who Have Had Their Lives Destroyed By H1N1 Swine Flu Vaccine Side Effects

March 11, 1969 - Vice-President of Planned Parenthood-World Population Frederick Jaffe's "Activities Relevant to the Study of Population Policy for the U.S." is printed containing a memo to Population Council president Bernard Berelson.

It includes examples of proposed measures to reduce U.S. fertility, such as

1.  encourage increased homosexuality
2.  fertility control agents in water supply
3.  encourage women to work
4.  abortion and sterilization on demand
5.  make contraception truly available and accessible to all

[Dialectics, Rockefellers, and Population Control; Item #17]

"If you want the truth on vaccination, you must go to those who are not making anything out of it.  If doctors shot at the moon every time it was full as a preventive of measles and got a shilling for it, they would bring statistics to prove it was a most efficient practice, and that the population would be decimated if it were stopped."---Dr Allinson [Medical Men and Vaccination]

[Great Vaccination Quotes]

"Each year enormous effort goes into producing that year's vaccine and delivering it to appropriate sections of the population.

And yet, year after year there are studies showing that flu vaccines DO NOT provide any benefit.

...Two years ago a study in the British Medical Journal concluded that the effectiveness of annual flu shots has been exaggerated, and that in reality they have little or no effect on influenza campaign objectives, including reducing the number of hospital stays, time off work, and death from influenza and its complications.

Other studies, done prior and subsequently, also confirm these findings."

[Do Flu Shots Work? Ask A Vaccine Manufacturer]

1,000% Increase in Alzheimer's Risk

"...This issue flared up back in 1997 when a leading proponent of the vaccine-autism link, Hugh Fudenberg, MD, presented his research at the NVIC International Vaccine Conference, Arlington, VA. His data showed that if an individual had five consecutive flu shots between 1970 and 1980 (the years studied) his / her chances of getting Alzheimer's disease is 10 times higher than if he / she had one, two, or no shots. This data was never published in a peer reviewed journal. Supporters of Fudenberg describe him as "the world's leading immunogeneticist and 13th most quoted biologist of our times (nearly 850 papers in peer review journals)...."

FYI -- H1N1 Vaccine

Mounting Debilities and Deaths from H1N1 Vaccine

Jordan McFarland, a 14-year-old boy from Virginia, is weak and struggling to walk after coming down with a reported case of Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) within hours after receiving the H1N1 vaccine for swine flu...

...Oh, how short our memories are.

It was only four short years ago when President Bush projected that TWO MILLION Americans would [could; source] die from the bird flu.  Guess how many in the US died from bird flu?

Zero, not one person…

...Adverse Reactions Listed in Package Inserts

Here are just a few adverse reactions listed in the package insert from MedImmune’s Intranasal “live” vaccine (the one you see being administered up children’s noses on TV):

* Guillian-Barre syndrome
* Exacerbation of symptoms of mitochondrial encephalomyopathy
* Gastrointestinal disorders
