School Kind of Bans Halloween
Welcome to Snowflake City my friends…

“Not even have ok well “it’s orange and black day”, instead it’s scarf tie day,” one parent.. said.

Ecole Sage Creek School isn’t the first to ban costumes during Halloween. The Louis Riel School District said while it doesn’t have a count on how many schools have banned costumes, there are others who have made that decision and other bans regarding Halloween in previous years.

Tie and Scarf DAY? Egads!!!!

Costumes are apparently too “triggering” nowadays…so grab them scarves and ties kids!
What next?
Are turkeys too scary too? Gobble Gobble!

Off the Crazy train for a bit and ——–Moving right along my friends………..

Proof of our society’s decline is that Halloween has become a broad daylight event for many. Trudat!

Beware of “friends” or strangers bearing tools the likes of chainsaws, staple guns, , electric carving knives, hedge trimmers, lawnmowers, butane torches, soldering irons, or um… band saws.

Make that a double beware if they are wearing a hockey mask or one made of human skin.

LET FREEDOM RING!


Feeling anxious? Your mood may actually change how your dinner tastes, making the bitter and salty flavours recede, according to new research.

Mood makes food taste different

This link between the chemical balance in your brain and your sense of taste could one day help doctors to treat depression.

..The work has also generated interest from flavour houses — companies that develop chemicals for the food and drink industry — who are interested, for example, in making foods taste just as sweet with half the amount of sugar. “

Theoretically there would be the possibility of enhancing your meal with drugs that affect brain chemicals so that things would taste better — you could have a ‘designer taste tablet’..”

The good ole brain chemicals..uh uh… serotonin , noradrenaline, tryptophan.

As for me, I’ll pass on the new “drug” they discover, and just take the chocolate thanks. smileyhelmut.jpg

Passover and Easter 2017!

Monday, April 10th, 2017

passover-table5d1b3

At the stroke of midnight …..G‑d visited the last of the ten plagues on the Egyptians, who were mercilessly enslaving the Israelites.
biting4

The Good Lord spared the Children of Israel, “passing over” their homes—hence the name: Passover. (Get it?) daydream

Pharaoh virtually chased his former slaves out of the land.

The Israelites left in such a mad rush that the bread they baked did not have time to rise.
They began their trek to Mount Sinai and their birth as a People.

matza-border

So what’s the matzah all about?

matzaver1

The characteristic of leavened dough is that it rises and swells, symbolizing pride and conceit.

Matzah, on the other hand, is thin and flat, signifying meekness and humility.

Freedom and humility sweet friends, are the essence of the holiday.

Humility does not mean thinking less of yourself than of other people, nor does it mean having a low opinion of your own gifts. It means freedom from thinking about yourself at all.
(William Temple)

Stay humble sweet friends.

And just remember…..when IzlamoNazis wail about their so called “rights”…..

Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.
(Abraham Lincoln)

May the Lord bless you and keep you.

May the Lord make his face to shine upon you,
and be gracious to you.

May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you,
and give you peace.

When was the last time I’ve heard from you? Well, I just want you to know that I miss you so much. How I’d wish that you would talk to me again. I love you.

Sender: GOD.

Valentines Day! 2017:-)

Tuesday, February 14th, 2017



Pensive V. DaY Thoughts to Ponder: Heh.
couplebb.gif

Valentine’s Day – Birds

In some countries, mid-February marks the beginning of mating season for many birds. Even the great Shakespeare wrote in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, “Saint Valentine is past: Begin these wood-birds but to couple now?”

Among the most faithful of birds, swans choose a mate and stay with them for life.

Valentine’s Day – Cards

The first Valentine’s Day card was from the Duke of Orléans—the younger brother of Charles VI, King of France—who sent it to his wife with a poem, in the 15th century. As luck would have it, his mother’s name was—Valentine! Fast forward to 2017:

Did you know that, around the world, people send each other roughly a billion cards decorated with red hearts and flowers?

Valentine’s Day – Chocolate

Is Valentine’s Day a celebration of chocolate? Either way, a box of chocolates—likely in the shape of a heart—is one of the most popular gifts on February 14. In the US, every year, chocolate sales reach or exceed $20 billion!


Valentine’s Day – The color of love

Giving roses is one way to express your love, but not all colors send the same message. A red rose symbolizes passion; white, the purity and sincerity of your feelings; yellow, friendship; orange, carnal desire; and pink, loyalty and sweetness. couplerr.gif

Valentine’s Day – Alone

Cupid often misses his mark. The proof? Roughly 124.6 million American adults were single in 2014. That’s a lot of people who are lonely and probably have no interest in celebrating on February 14. Being alone is tough, which is why numerous help lines notice a rise in the number of calls around Valentine’s Day.
It’s certainly not everyone’s favorite day.

Valentine’s Day – Finland

Alone on Valentine’s Day? Pack your bags for Finland. Okay, that might be a bit far-fetched, but perhaps you should borrow their interesting take on Valentine’s Day. For them, the celebration—Ystävänpäivä—encompasses much more than lovers.

It’s a celebration of friends. Their unique interpretation of this holiday ensures no one is left behind. Pretty great, isn’t it?

Valentine’s Day – Marriage proposals

Popping the big question on Valentine’s Day isn’t terribly original. It’s pretty romantic, but choosing that particular day seems a bit too planned and obvious. And don’t think you’re the only one who’s thought of it!

There are around 220,000 marriage proposals on Valentine’s Day each year in the United States. What would happen if you waited until February 15? valentine-ca-cupid.gif

Valentines

valentine-cashorts.gif

Happy Valentines DaY sweet friends!
valentine-envelope.gif

But seriously…….It was once said: “I love you because the entire universe conspired to help me find you.”

I do believe that we have built a bridge my friends..so from your hearts to mine..Bless you all and thank you for being keepers of the Flame.

“The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.”
Thank y’all for keeping me sort of sane.

I love you my fellow patriots. Never give up your love of country and what is righteous. We Will Not Submit.

THIS is what I am makin today…Any takers?..lolz

Healthy version!

“Anyone can catch your eye, but it takes someone special to catch your heart.”

Ahhhhhhhhhh.candycane.gif

Holiday Time.

Some free advice.
Don’t let stress ruin your holidays my friends.

Don’t get thrown if misunderstandings between family members increase.
If they really get to ya, sneak away.

Spend some time alone if you like.
There’s nothing like a few minutes of solitude.
Take a walk at night and gaze at the the moon and stunning stars.
Listen to your favorite music.

Have a cookie.
In fact, have two.

You may be sad or lonely if you find yourself without a loved one.

It’s all okay.
It’s all normal.

Just feel the feelings.
No need to manufacture feelings you may not have “just because “tis the season to be jolly.”
Then again, reaching out and helping others is a sure fire way to lift your spirits.

If your’e in a bit of financial bind, don’t fret that “everyone on your gift list be happy” by overspending and feeling anxious afterward.

It’s not only about opening presents, but opening your hearts.

Remember:
He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree.
Roy L. Smith

Indulge. C’mon.
Vegetables are a must on a diet. I suggest carrot cake, zucchini bread, and pumpkin pie.
Jim Davis

Worries go down better with soup.
Jewish Proverb

Or….cake. Heh.eat-smile.gif

Most of all…the biggest challenge of the Season:
Practice forgiveness.
candle.gif

Some of us, especially activitsts and bloggers, try desperately to help light the world. Perhaps, at this time……… we just need to learn how to light up our own lives.

May the lights of Chanukah and Christmas usher in a better world for all humankind.
And may love and light fill your homes and hearts this holiday season my sweet friends.
