Yom Kippur

Wednesday, October 8th, 2008

On this holy day God seals our fate for the coming year. Yom Kippur is spent, fasting and in prayer, asking the Lord to forgive us for our misdeeds and grant life and a blessed new year.

Sweet friends.
May you be inscribed and sealed in the Book of Life.

Park between the lines, smile whenever you can, and take this solemn time to reflect on the goal of self perfection.

Make time for atonement. Lord knows, we all need it.

To my Jewish friends:
May you avenge your sworn enemies and may we celebrate our loving and joyous faiths in His eternal, unconditional love.
May we share our hard earned Freedoms for centuries to come.
No dhimmitude.

Cheers! (for after the fast, of course)joy.gif

Insomnia?

Tuesday, October 7th, 2008

Serious sleeping troubles sometimes can result in what experts call chronic insomnia, which could have profound underpinnings, such as psychiatric disturbance, breathing problems, or unexplained leg movements during the middle of the night.

Finding Dreamland
These at-home remedies may help you get the sleep you really need.

Turn off your mind
Keep yourself from rehashing a stressful day of worries by focusing your thoughts on something peaceful and non-threatening, ….. Play some soft, soothing music as you drift off or some environmental noise, such as the sound of a waterfall, waves crashing on a beach, or the sound of rain in a jungle. The only rule: Be sure it’s not intrusive or distracting.

Here are a few herbs to try.

Valerian.
This is the best-studied herbal sleep aid. Research shows that extracts of the root not only help you fall asleep faster but also improve sleep quality.
Kava kava.
Chamomile.

Don’t waste your time in bed.
If you can’t fall asleep in 15 minutes or so, get up and do something pleasantly monotonous. Read a magazine article, not a book that may engross you. Knit, watch television, or do a puzzle.

Say no to a nightcap.
Alcohol depresses the central nervous system, but it also disrupts sleep. In a few hours, usually during the middle of the night, its effects wear off, your body slides into withdrawal, and you’ll wake up.

Eat a light snack before bedtime.
Bread and fruit will do nicely an hour or two before you hit the hay

Learn and practice relaxation techniques.

Let me put it this way:
If you know that wretched feeling that accompanies insufficient sleep, you know exactly what I’m talking about.

Some of us think..Heck, I can do with out it.
After all, surgeons, interns, military personnel, and even truck drivers often function on very little sleep. Well guess what? They are not typically happy about it and not surprisingly– accidents due to cognitive errors increase in frequency with decreasing sleep.

Do you have trouble getting a good night’s sleep?

I heartell that women suffer from insomnia twice as often as men. Hmmmm.
Insomina may result in weight gain, depression, sugar cravings and even food addictions.
So, THAT’S why I hafta have chocolate eh?

Do you sleep too lightly, are you easily disrupted with multiple spontaneous awakenings, or early morning awakenings with that horrific inability to fall back asleep? Ugh.

Me? I am and have always been officially nocturnal. Most alive in the stillness of the night.
Ahhhhhhhhh.

Warm baths and massage can’t hurt, but have you heard that that a sliced onion in a jar near your bed induces sleep?
Hmmmmm, I haven’t tried that one yet. Ah. That aroma… Heh.

Here are some secret massage techniques for helping you get that dreamy sleep you ache for.

Try ‘em and let me know when you awake all refreshed how effective they were…and where and how much I can bill ya.

-Press and knead the center of the crown of the head. Do it at least 30 times.
-Thumb-knead the inner sides of the eyebrows. Do this 30 times.
-Rub your hands together to get them all warm and toasty, then put them over your weary, closed eyes for 30 seconds. Gently rub the eyeballs, at least 10 times or more.

You snoozin yet?

I hear warm milk with a bit of honey and cinnamon does the trick.

Thinking about a very stressful situation that you handled well and then reflecting on all the good things that have happened in your life………Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Do y’all know of any sleep inducing secrets?… oils or potions, a magic lotion scent perhaps?

Better yet..What are some things you do at night?
Care to share?

Bloggers awake at 2AM want to know. Heh.

P.S. Just for tonight…If all else fails.
Try watchin the presidential debate.

That oughta do the trick, right quick.

Sarah Palin: Classy Lady

Monday, October 6th, 2008

Please watch………..It’s only a couple of minutes, sweet friends.

Way to go Sarah!

Note she manages to say “Bless your heart, sir.”
How’s that for sheer, unadulterated “class”.

Indeed, Sarah Palin may not be flawless… but she’s a damn sight better than anything the Leftard Democrats have to offer.
Azzamatter of fact, Bozo the Clown would beat anything the Dhimmicrats have to offer – by a country mile.

Ah. The poor Lefties.
They’re trippin all over themselves seeing how devastatingly effective Governor Palin truly is.

And we got front row seats. Heh.

Hussein Obama: Not My Kinda “Change”

Sunday, October 5th, 2008

Hussein Obama talks good game bout creatin a better lifestyle, a better “Community”,
..Oh yea….and
An Ever Better World.

You know…as long as we follow him….we’ll get ourselves some personal paradise which will magically facilitate Paradise On Earth as we know it.

Yes. Yes.

You too can embrace it. Simply access the Obama Hussein Train entrance portal. Spread the message.
Global peace and prosperity is at our fingertips.

All we have to do is………………………..

Hand over control of our mental, emotional, physical and financial destiny…to him...not Him…but him…as in Hussein Obama. And to the almighty…(not Almighty) government he wishes to rule.
Right.

Came across this sweet friends.

If we spent less time trying to make this world a better place to live in,
and more time trying to make ourselves better persons to live with, the world would be a better place to live in.

Now, that’s a “change” I can believe in.

Benning investigates beating of Jewish soldier

Saturday, October 4th, 2008

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — In a letter home, a Jewish soldier in basic training at Fort Benning complained of religious discrimination and wrote that a friend overheard platoon members saying they wanted to beat him up.

Days later, Pvt. Michael Handman was beaten so badly he had to be treated at a hospital, and his father believes the attack stemmed from an investigation of Handman’s claims that instructors had harassed him and used anti-Semitic slurs.

“I have just never been so discriminated against/humiliated about my religion,” Handman wrote to his parents. “I just feel like I’m always looking over my shoulder. Like my battle buddy heard some of the guys in my platoon talking about how they wanted to beat the (expletive) out of me tonight while I’m sleeping.”

Jewish Army Trainee in Ga. Says He Was Beaten

Handman, 20, of Atlanta wrote to his parents that he was heading to take a shower on Sept. 24, four days after investigators interviewed him about the harassment, when another soldier called him into the laundry room, saying some of Handman’s clothes were in a pile on the floor. Handman said he was sorting through the pile on his knees when a fist knocked him on his back.

“He kept hitting the side of my face, back of my head and temples for about 10-15 more seconds that I can remember,” Handman wrote. “After that I was knocked out. Next thing I remember is tasting blood and 2 pvts. (privates) standing over me calling my name.”

He was treated for a concussion and bruising to the left side of his face at the Army hospital on post and moved to a different platoon after he returned to training the next day, said Fort Benning spokeswoman Monica Manganaro.

Manganaro said two drill sergeants are being reprimanded for religious discrimination toward Handman after he started basic training Aug. 29.

She said one drill sergeant had called Handman “Juden” — the German word for Jews. Another demanded he remove his yarmulke, which Handman wore with his uniform, while eating in a dining hall.

Investigators have interviewed a fellow trainee suspected of attacking Handman, but no charges have been filed. Mangaro said investigators believe the attack “was not due to religious prejudice” but would not explain why.

NO CHARGES HAVE BEEN FILED?

Charming way to start a career in the Army eh.
Any media coverage on this?

Don’t bother answering that.

In order for The army to function, the one prequisite is unity.
Soliders need to know in their gut that they share the same goals and aims.

So because a Jew presents as a tad “different”, this created so much friction that his buddies tried to beat the living daylights out of him?

Yes, The Army is a fighting machine, and at times the fighting takes place amongst its soldiers instead of against the enemy.

But considering the “enemy” we face today in the rabid, psychotic, crazed IzlamoNazis, you would think the targets of hate would not be Jewish soldiers who line up to defend their country, perhaps even with their very lives.

Hmmmmmm.
“the Army found that two (non-commissioned officers)… “inadvertently” violated the Army Regulation … by using inappropriate terms when referencing the Jewish faith.”

Did you ever hear such a load of debris?

Tell me praytell, Just how does one go about “inadvertently” using anti Semitic terms?

Too bad the soldier wasn’t Muslim or better yet……..Wiccan .Those investigators would have been all over them like a virus and they would have been discharged pronto zoomo.

For crying outloud. This is a volunteer army we are talking about.

Any young man who chooses to risk his very life for the defense of his country deserves to be shown consideration and treated with respect for his religious beliefs.
His religion aint the one calling Christians and infidels apes and pigs ya know.

That would be um……….Them:

Pvt. Michael Handman should have an expectation of camaraderie and above all, -personal safety from his fellow army bretheren.

Shame on them.
Truly.

Press charges. Now.

The Vice Presidential Debate & Sarah Palin’s Smile

Thursday, October 2nd, 2008

What are debates after all?

Tis all about the “verbal discourse”, isn’t it?

Highlights anyone?

-Gov. Sarah Palin, called Hussein Obama’s plan to withdraw American forces from Iraq a “white flag of surrender.” Booyah!


She generously called Obama “naive” for saying he was willing to “engage” the leaders of Iran, North Korea and Cuba.

I would have chosen some other “choice” words myself.

She cut to the chase on Hussein Obama’s crushing tax plan, his mammoth spending proposals and his outrageous foreign affairs positions.

Before you wipe Israel off the map and nuke America………..Care for some more tea Eichmadinejad?

What we love about her:
She’s a straight shooter..and a straight talker.
None of that obtuse beltway jargon. Blech.

Biden. hmmm.

So far, he has managed to insult Ohio voters with disapproving comments about building new coal plants.

-He thinks its cool to mention how “attractive” Sarah Palin is. Real manly of ya dude.

-He made that brilliant observation about “President Franklin Roosevelt addressing the nation on television” during the 1929 stock market crash.
President Roosevelt, of course, was not even President then, and um….television didn’t even exist.

Another head scratching moment, brought to you by Joe Biden. Ha.

Let’s be honest friends.
Joe, just like his terrorist loving pal Hussein Obama, has been on the wrong side of most issues since the beginning of what seems like his never ending career.
Dull and defensive.
When in doubt: Attack President Bush.

Sarah Palin?

For starters, she hasn’t played the corruption and circus game of Capitol Hill.
An “unapologetic love of country”.
Smarts, wit, confidence, poise.
Humor, charm and that million dollar smile..Uh huh.

You want change?
Don’t fret about the pollsters and pundits who will do nothing but spin this evening’s outcome.
Sarah Palin.You just keep blazin that trail.
And what ever you do……….Don’t ever lose that smile.

Views on the debates my sweet friends?
Please………pull up a stool…and ………..Share away.
