Sept 11……..My StorY

Monday, September 10th, 2007

One crisp, beautiful ……September morning.

New York City was quiet, but oh so very loud.

I was there as the blanket of dust and smoke, filling the air, covered my city, as “Ground Zero” , bit by bit, emerged from the wreckage.

I remove the mask from my face, fixing my eyes upon those who were trapped or had raced inside. Submerged , snowed under and now veiled beneath the drywall, parts of the planes, the concrete, the office supplies……..

…….another fireman was found today.

They hose me down at midnight, my ritual of departure, leaving Ground Zero, the horror and fear of the dirt, ash and soot that has rained down upon us like the poison of the evil-doers.

I listen achingly as my fellow Americans and families from nations throughout the world, tell me how they didn’t have time to sew up some deep wound and would give anything for “just one more chance.”
“Will they get it?”, they inquire from me.

The vulnerablitly and dread reaches its peak and I too, am forced to face my panic.

Everyone is always looking skyward. Some said you could even smell the hate in the air.

Wives, husbands, brothers, sisters.. begging me for the hope that their loved one is not dead.

I watch daily as our cherished homeland’s flag is draped upon, not a box that holds a little girl’s father, but what is left of his body……

I observe how as each day passes, with no life found, it begins to chip away at the shaky faith and belief his mother had, knocking her to her knees.

One day, the check finally comes due. They hesitatingly tell us.
We are now in a new “phase”:
search and recovery
“What?!, his wife tormentingly asks…… longer search and “rescue?”
I witness the firefighters making that helpless dive into the rubble despite it all.
Is there still a fighting chance..Did we miss someone…….

Exhaustion finally takes over. His head is hanging low, he takes a nap on a blanket I set out on the ground. I sit with him.
He wakes with a start, and wearily, he suits up…

This big, masculine fireman slowly rises to his feet, and says, “It was you who tucked me in..I could smell your perfume……I could feel your hair fall on my face……as I dreamed it was me caught in that ghastly place.

He softly tells me “Thank you, you do not realize what you did for me today.
I feel as though an angel tucked me in and allowed me to finally get out of my own little corner of hell and slip into such sorely needed sleep.”
A lump forms in my throat, I do not know what to say.

Is “time up?”. Is there a shelf life for grieving?
At times, when witnessing the skyline, the pain is unceasing..and I feel as though I am still holding my breath.

As for me, I can’t cry hard enough.


Dedicated to my husband, my chauffeur, without whom I could never have served my neighbors and fellow Americans…and to all the victims of Sept.11.
I know they are resting in Your Arms, Sweet Lord.

IN another case of researchers reporting the bleeding obvious, European scientists have found that children are smarter than chimpanzees.

Shock: kids smarter than chimps
A unique study comparing the abilities of human toddlers to chimpanzees and orang-utans found that two-year-old children have social learning skills superior to the apes, the researchers said.

In one social learning test, a researcher showed the children and apes how to pop open a plastic tube to get food or a toy contained inside. The children observed and imitated the solution.

Chimpanzees and orang-utans, however, tried to smash open the tube or yank out the contents with their teeth.

Kids intelligence vs monkeys?


Duh:………. definition:

1 — used to express actual or feigned ignorance or stupidity
2 — used derisively to indicate that something just stated is all too obvious or self-evident

It seems that stating the bleeding obvious has alas….. become acceptable and hey…even respectable.
Another ahem “study”, to be published in some obscure” scientific” journal with loads of statistical analysis no doubt.

Did anyone ponder if these ahem..”pearlz of wisdom” were even worth the time, effort and cost of the research.

No offense guyz n dollz but what ain’t worth studyin, simply ain’t worth studyin. Kids vs monkeys?..Huh?

Ya catch what I’m pitchin here?

Oh wait.
Perhaps I should conduct yet another meaningless study to examine the meaninglessness of meaningless studies eh. Ha.
Should I apply for a grant? eyebrow.gif

Far be it from lil ole me to belittle um…er…”research”…
But howzabout researchers tell us something we didn’t know……just for a change of pace.. mmkay?

Spare us the self-evident, the painfully apparent, the unequivocal, the barefaced……..the obvious……um……..the duh factor.

Let’s brainstorm friends.
Ideas for research studies:
-Do hair straighteners really straighten your hair?
-Does wearing a helmet decrease an athlete’s chance of gettin hurt when struck in the head by a ball?

Any ideas friends?

I patiently await the stunning breakthroughs, o.k., I’ll settle for at least an unexpected insight or two.
Will the researchers discover new planets, …….new species..Hmmm.
I’ll take the ridiculously, apparent Obvious for 500 Alex. greedy3.gif

Well, fret not sweet friends……….There are even research studies claiming that nearly all claimed research findings are false.
Ya think?

Like No wayyyyyyy, man.

Relaxation OpenTrackback Weekend

Thursday, September 6th, 2007



Indoor waterfalls.



Believe it or not….It is something you consciously do.

It isn’t something that just happens to ya, when you happen not to be busy at the moment.

Relaxation and respite is a gift you give yourself, and a most necessary one at that.

Life affords many things. Among them:
Nervous tension.
Constant worry.

So hows about giving that body, mind and spirit or yours some well-deserved time off eh.

First, perhaps you can find a peaceful room in your own home.
(There’s got to be one somewhere eh….C’mon: You can do it!..De-clutter.

Add some of your favorite music, (soft music, that is….), find some colorful scented candles or incense, pretty flowers, some of your favorite photos of your loved ones or special souvenirs you’ve saved over the years.


Treat yourself to some herbs and essential oils.
You can make a beautiful facial steam by adding some oils to boiling water and carefully putting your face over the steam…ahhhhh. Carefully.

You can make home made hair conditioners, facials,..using eggs, oil, cucumbers and avocado!

How bout exfoliating and detoxifying your skin. Simple. Use sea salt.

Or the simplest technique of all.
Do as the Romans did.
Roman bathhouses attracted visitors from all over the entire Empire.

Step into a sultry, hot, steaming bath. Luxuriate.

Or heck…do what I did. Took one of my girlies, grabbed the coupons our friend gave us, found the nearest spa and……….got pampered. cloud9.gif


Soooooo..what will y’all do to “relax” this weekend sweet friends?

It’s Raining FreakS

Thursday, September 6th, 2007

A homo-sex-ual foster couple were left free to sex-ually abuse vulnerable boys in their care because social workers feared being accused of discrimination if they investigated complaints, an inquiry concluded yesterday.

G-ay couple left free to abuse boys – because social workers feared being branded hom-ophobic

… one of the first homo-se-xual couples in the country to be officially approved as foster parents.

With no previous convictions, they came across as respectable men who simply wanted to help boys with a variety of problems.

In reality, they were paed-ophiles, who repeatedly abused the children in their care.

Lights,> Camera, > PC action,> Sexually abused children.

“Women and Men. Mothers and Fathers are simply – interchangeable.”
That is the party line.

If you dare point out obvious inconsistencies you will immediately be branded, labeled a bigot, lose your job and status.

It matters not one lick that we live up to the precepts of the One who created us. No, no no, it is all about US.
Our alleged rights to do what we want, when we want, how we want and as often as we want.

You want some kids?…Two men living together?
Sure, have a few.

No mother? No father?..No Family? : NO Problem.

There is a wealth of research, outside of simple common sense, to support the claim that children are the most successful academically, emotionally, and socially when raised in a two parent …which means -biological mother and father..and oh yes……. “married to each other”.. family.

Same sex marriage proponents allege that conventions leave an impression that “there is something wrong or unnatural about their families.
Well, guess what. There is.
No child is born of two mothers or two fathers.

Spare me the “adopted” parents argument. Mothers and fathers who adopt and rear children are just that: mothers and fathers.
Not two mothers or two fathers.

Those who oppose same-sex relationships because of their Faith do not feel particularly threatened by same-sex marriages, but rather believe that the relationships themselves are inherently immoral and sinful.

Marriage is one of the building blocks of a society. A father and mother create family bonds which are unique and unparallelled.

Children are ideally brought up in two parent homes, where moral values are passed on from one generation to the next. Traditions, beliefs, and cultural norms are passed on through the family from parents (a father and mother) to children.
Religious groups are now constant targets of persecution for their beliefs by those trying to legitimize and give legal backing to ga-y marriage and now, even………eligibility for adoption and foster care.

There is no doubt that the decision to legalize homose-xual marriage and lifestlyle will ultimatley lead to the legalization of adult incestuous marriages and polygamous marriages. That is nothing but sheer, unadulterated logic.

Marriage between a man and a woman is poles apart from cohabitation or homo-sexual relationships, and should never be treated as their equivalent.

If we use terms such as developing morally upright citizens, we are ceremoniously accused of giving voice to ugly sentiments.

No matter that communities with more married-parent families have less poverty, are safer, and have markedly less substance abuse and crime among adolescents.

Our purpose and the purpose of all civilized peoples is to provide our Nations’ children with security, love and safety.

Homo-sexuals adopting foster children?
Men in charge of little, vulnerable boys?
Welcome to life and lies in the Leftie bubble.

Another nail in the coffin of civilization as we know it.

You can butter my butt and call me a biscuit but two men do not parents make and……..two men have no right “adopting” children.

The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
Arthur Schopenhauer

Boycotting PastA?

Wednesday, September 5th, 2007

On the 13 September, there will be no spaghetti, fettucine, farfalle or rigatoni in Italy, as the country goes on its first-ever pasta strike.

Angry Italians to go on national pasta strike

Angry Italians are downing their forks in response to a 30 per cent price rise in the nation’s favourite food, along with steep rises in the price of coffee, mozzarella, bread, biscuits and schoolbooks.

Most Italians eat pasta at least once a day, and consume around 54 kilograms over the course of the year.

According to a recent study, many of them prefer pasta to all other pleasures.

Imagine boycotting your greatest ‘pleasure’. Heh.

Did y’all know……..
To cook one billion pounds of pasta, you would need 2,021,452,000 gallons of water – enough to fill nearly 75,000 Olympic-size swimming pools.


Thomas Jefferson is credited with introducing macaroni to the United States. It seems that he fell in love with a certain dish he sampled in Naples, while serving as the U.S. Ambassador to France. In fact, he promptly ordered crates of “macaroni,” along with a pasta-making machine, sent back to the States.


The first American pasta factory was opened in Brooklyn, New York, in 1848, by a Frenchman named Antoine Zerega. Mr. Zerega managed the entire operation with just one horse in his basement to power the machinery. To dry his spaghetti, he placed strands of the pasta on the roof to dry in the sunshine.

Speaking of spaghetti…and meatballs: the Italians only ate meat a few times a month. So, when they came to America, where meat was so plentiful, they incorporated meat into their cooking more often, making meatballs an American invention.

The average person in Italy eats more than 51 pounds of pasta every year. The average person in North America eats about 15-1/2 pounds of pasta per year.

How can you not love pasta.

That mix of soft, melted cheeses with tender pasta.
The tomatoes colored a bright red…..

Can you taste the creaminess, the heartiness of meat, juicy and fully cooked…..

..the sweet-and-tart flavor of the absolutely perfect sauce. Mmmmmmmmmmm.

Can you smell the fragrant smell…….

Just imagine it gliding over your tongue …warm and comforting.

Gosh…….Zit dinner time yet?chef3.gif

Reformed Jewish Leaders?..Shame on YoU

Tuesday, September 4th, 2007

Now the nation’s largest Jewish movement, Reform Judaism, is preparing to adopt a new prayer book that was intended to offer something for everyone — traditionalists, progressives and everyone else — even those who do not believe in God.

In New Prayer Book, Signs of Broad Change

Traditional touches coexist with a text that sometimes departs from tradition by omitting or modifying some prayers and by using language that is gender-neutral. References to God as “He” have been removed, and whenever Jewish patriarchs are named — like Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, so are the matriarchs — like Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel and Leah.

“We have interfaith families. We have so many visitors at b’nai mitzvah ceremonies that I could have a service on Shabbat morning where a majority of people there aren’t Jewish…”

A prayer book for “even those who do not believe in God”? Ha. laugh-smile.gif

She’s got to be kiddin.
Talk about diluting a Faith.

Another shining example of fatuous moral relativism.

For God’s sake…….quite literally: Be who you are. jewish-star.gif
Be Jewish.
Quit apologizing every 15 seconds. It’s quite unflattering to say the least.

But apparently, It’s not enough to discard any semblance of authentic Judaism or even religion……….they must also cozy up to our sworn enemies.

Rabbi Eric Yoffie, leader of the Reform movement, spoke this afternoon to the annual convention of the Is-lamic Society of North America.
Reform leader to Mus-lim Americans: Together we will fight the opportunists who demonize you

“How did it happen that Christian fundamentalists, such as Pat Robertson and Franklin Graham, make vicious and public attacks against your religious tradition?” ..he asks.

I-S-N-A?…A Jew talkin to the Wah-abbists I-S-N-A?! body11.gif
The founder of C.A.-I.R. has unapologetically stated that Izlam did not come to America to be simply another religion but to be the dominant one.

He claims our Constitution would one day be replaced with sh-aria law. And….. IS-NA, is DIRECTLY connected to terrorist organizations, and sponsors know the ones blowing up Israeli children daily.

Perhaps this alleged Rabbi should have done his homework, and read the articles from the Justice Dept. regarding the ongoing trial of the Holy Land Foundation of which CA-IR is an unindicted co-conspirator. Not to mention that 5 of CA-IR`s top officials have been tossed in the slammer already.

This is how your friends conceptualize you dear Rabbi.

Did the Rabbi take the time to address the most hatful people in the world who are “honor killing” their own daughters and sisters.

Did he manage to articulate anythin bout the ones who send their childen to mos-ques who then preach hate for all non-Muzlims, most especially Christians and Jews, aka pigs and apes?

Did he casually mention how Muzlim women have to be genitally mutilated for their..ahem…..God.

Did he offer a prayer for all the Muzlim children who have to listen to the im-ams who would make them all martyrs and dead by the age of 5?

These Jews are worse than Neville Chamberlain who had to go to Munich in person, because heck – you can`t lick somebody’s boots long distance, now can you.

Naw…but howzabout “helping” those that swear to behead you?

In preparation for Ei-d Al-F-iter, members of the Reform movement gather to pack food packages to be delivered to Mus-lims in East Jerusalem. One of movement’s Rabbis: ‘A small contribution to changing atmosphere in Israel’

Reform Jews assist Mus-lims for holiday

Ah yes, that will truly “contribute to change the atmosphere in Israel.”
Uh huh.

Where are the pics of the Muzlims and their children aiding children and families of Sderot?..and victims of suicide bombs?

Where on planet Earth have Muzlims joined together to help Jews or Christians? Ever?

Nice belt huh…Did y’all teach her how to make that too?

Sure, Reformed, or Progressive or “whatever you like to call yourselves these days Jews”: extend an olive branch when the Nuke’s on it’s way. Most especially to to ones who call for the destruction of the State of Israel and America daily.

While we all pray for a more just and peaceful world, these overtures and propositions are not only unrealistic and offensive, they are appeasing and dangerous.

From whence comes the confusion of friend vs enemy, or liberated vs exploited. Purposely blurring distinctions between peoples is disingenuous and has perilous implications.

For their sakes, I sure hope these reform “Rabbis” do not represent all reform Jews.
They certainly don’t represent Conservative or Orthodox ones.

Do they love u yet?

Monday, September 3rd, 2007

The U.S. Open was a blast.
Woohoo! We got to hob nob with the greatest players ever………alright alright..well…with their pictures at least. Heh. tennis-girl.gif

Hung out with my favorite dudes from the FDNY, firefighter3.gif of course.

Our “finest” was out in droves as well.

Not to mention awesome athletes……….ah!

Love is nothing in tennis, but in life it’s everything. heartc.gif

It’s one-on-one out there, man. There ain’t no hiding. I can’t pass the ball.
Pete Sampras

I have always considered tennis as a combat in an arena between two gladiators who have their racquets and their courage as their weapons.
Yannick Noah

So much has been said about what comprises the perfect athlete.
Focus, sportsmanlike behavior, the ability to work with a team, discipline,
high motivation, commitment.

The list seems endless.

A positive perspective, mental toughness, intrinsic motivation, high stress tolerance and the ability to cope with adversity.
Emotional Control?

No wonder I’m sittin on this side of the fence, Heh.

Do y’all have a favorite athlete? Someone who combines all the qualities ya admire? applause.gif

As for me…easy on the spitting, swearing, and tude.
I’ll take the decent, honorable, yet ferocious athlete any day of the week.

Hittin the ball to my buddies at Blog @, Perri Nelson’s Website, Rosemary’s Thoughts, DeMediacratic Nation, 123beta, Big Dog’s Weblog, Right Truth, Nuke’s News & Views, Stuck On Stupid, Webloggin, The Amboy Times, Leaning Straight Up, , Conservative Cat, third world county, The Uncooperative Radio Show!, The World According to Carl, Blue Star Chronicles, Pirate’s Cove, and CommonSenseAmerica, thanks to Linkfest Haven Deluxe.


Stop The ACLU Blogburst

Monday, September 3rd, 2007

Please scroll down for my new posts~! :)


I wanted to put something up for Labor Day here to get some inspirations sparked. For a while my priorities have been shifted. I want to announce that we will be more active in our original cause and want to thank everyone that has supported us thus far. To get our blogburst reinvigorated, I thought I’d pull out a classic…one that explains why we started and what we are all about…

Stop The ACLU was started on February 9th, 2004. We started with high hopes, and we realized we were facing a goliath. There were many reasons why we thought the ACLU needed to be countered, and they are numerous. We wanted to provide a way to inform the public of the ACLU’s agenda, as the MSM sugar coated it. We wanted to be a central database for people to gather, exchange ideas, and get actively involved in real ways of stopping them. It is a monumental task, exhausting, time consuming, and often frustrating. But it is a fight worth fighting.

We would be nothing without our supporters. To all of you, we appreciate the continued support. We have called you to action and you have answered.

There are many reasons to stop the ACLU. For this blogburst I decided to list my top ten list.

10. The ACLU was founded by Communist, with communist ideals, communist goals, and they continue to impose a Communist like agenda on America daily. The founder of the ACLU, Roger Baldwin stated clearly…


Kiss Me~!

Sunday, September 2nd, 2007

SARAJEVO (AFP) — Organisers of an event in which almost 7,000 couples kissed simultaneously in a Bosnian town on Saturday said their effort deserved a place in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Bosnia claims world kissing record
Mus-lim clerics in Tuzla called for a boycott of the event, arguing it was not in line with Mus-lim tradition.

Well, color me surprised. (NOT!)

Seems this kinna kissin is jus fine n dandy with them eh:

Mebbe someone should inform their Muzlim friends……..

Kissing can help you lose weight, relax, express love, boost your immune system, improve self-esteem, manage stress and stimulate your brain.

It’s official, kissing does help

It is a great stress reliever, it quiets the mind and has the effects of meditation. If your mind still races while you’re kissing someone, you are simply kissing the wrong person.

This could be a more exciting expenditure of energy than climbing stairs or taking a walk for the very same result. It’s not exactly a cardiovascular workout, but it certainly has a delightful place in a healthy lifestyle.

Many times kissing induces other types of touching. We are a touch-deprived nation and, therefore, hugs are extremely therapeutic as well. Kissing, hugging and touching increase feelings of security and wellbeing.

When our wellbeing improves our self-esteem increases. We feel more secure and better about ourselves, and our outer persona reflects it.

That’s right Muzlims.
Enough of your fatuous arrogance, your dismissive zenophobia, and intellectual vacuousness. Enough of your ragefests , car and flag burnings over cartoons.

Enough of us having to see over and over again how moral equivalences and imaginary grievances by Izlamists and CA-IR, (unindicted co-conspirators of terrorism…otherwise known as: Consistent Aggravated Izlamic Raving), always trump real oppression and suffering.

Enough of us bein told:
Pali=freedom fighter

Just for one moment………Why dontcha all
stop ragin…and um………start kissin and huggin.

And while I’m at it …..
Some free advice:
So much better to spend yer time dreamin of heavenly angels than being consumed with the darkness of devils.

Soooooooooo…Let the kissin begin~! kiss-smile.gif

Blowin kisses to my friends over at Perri Nelson’s Website, Blog @, The Virtuous Republic, Rosemary’s Thoughts, DeMediacratic Nation, 123beta, Adam’s Blog, Right Truth, Big Dog’s Weblog, Inside the Northwest Territory, Shadowscope, Nuke’s News & Views, Stuck On Stupid, Webloggin, The Bullwinkle Blog, Leaning Straight Up, The Amboy Times, , third world county, Faultline USA, The Uncooperative Radio Show!, The World According to Carl, Pirate’s Cove, Blue Star Chronicles, CommonSenseAmerica, and Right Voices, thanks to Linkfest Haven Deluxe.
