When will it happen?

I'm about to lose my old email server, so I spent a lot of time today going through old stuff on that account. I found a lot of pictures. Now, I've never taken a "selfie" in my life (only because I never owned a smart phone, I'm not that humble ...) but there are a lot of pictures of me with signs back in San Francisco. This was before I gained a lot of weight, so don't expect any recent photo updates soon, at least not until I'm satisfied with having achieved my "get fit" New Year's resolution. I thought I'd share some of these nearly decade-old pix on my blog, though.

As I said, these are some old pictures. The troops still aren't home, no one got impeached, and we're still waiting on peace. So did I waste all my time marching with Code Pink? Standing out with the Quakers every Thursday afternoon, rain or shine? Time will tell. At any rate, I'm proud of these pictures. Maybe the blessing is in the doing, and not the results. Have a blessed day. :)

The Mandela Effect | THE DARK SIDE (video)

I very definitely remember it being "Berenstein Bears." And "Mirror, mirror, on the wall." And "It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood."

Standoff At The Hammond Ranch In Oregon is a Staged Provocation

I admit I haven't done much research into it, but those are my two cents. Here's a posting from someone who knows more about it:

The Truth About The Standoff At The Hammond Ranch In Oregon, USA, That Everyone Must Be Made Aware Of by Northern Truth Seeker

As Scott Creighton said over at American Everyman, the Feds want to be able to justify disarming anti-government types in general. Agents provocateurs are real, folks, and this whole operation smells.

Happy New Year! Resolutions, Anyone?

I try to make a new resolution every year. Last years' worked out pretty well, despite it being fairly ill-defined (lose weight). I don't own a scale but my clothes fit a lot better. This year I want to "get fit." I know I should define my goals a little better but it makes it a lot easier for me to abide by them. For those who are in reasonably good shape may I suggest a couple resolutions that I have been successful at that I'm really glad I made? (This is where I get to be proudly self-righteous ... one of the advantages of keeping my own blog ...)

1) Pull your money out of big banks.
2) Eat a more plant-based diet. One baby step would be Meatless Mondays, but it's not that hard to give up meat altogether. I did try going vegan a few years back, I haven't been completely successful, but I'll get there eventually. The trick is not to beat yourself up if you make a few exceptions here or there, at least it is for me. That, and learn how to jazz up your food with herbs and spices. They just need to make a vegan cheese that doesn't cost ten bucks a pack and taste like plastic. Actually, nutritional yeast isn't bad, if I ever get down to the health food store.

Sorry I haven't been blogging as much as I usually do, I guess I'm just exercising another prerogative of mine. When everything turns into lies and distractions instead of reacting I can always concentrate on something altogether more positive. So that's what I'm doing. I suspect if we all did this as a species the evil ones would just dry up and go away. Until then, well, I'll try to look on the bright side.
