    Perfect timing, Swanny! A good laugh always brings comfort to my soul. Especially after reading a depressing post of despair.

    One of the things I have noticed with the UFO community, is that TPTB want us stuck in the past. As in "Roswell." Same thing with UFOs landing on the White House lawn back in 52. Mis guiding everyone. Although these events happened, they don't want us to know that these things have happened in modern times. UFOs have landed on the White House lawn in recent times. It hasn't been a one-time occurrence. Just one example. UFOs have crashed all over the World since those times.

    Then you have the same effect going on with the so-called story, titled the bible. Leaving you stuck in the past where you can't prove a damn thing. No matter how many what-ifs you apply. Leaving many, stuck in the brainwashing. When these folks speak, you can hear the brainwash job that has them stuck in bondage. The program wanting you to seek a savior to save themselves. Why? Because it is convenient so the real work of going within is never realized. Forever trapped in their believing churches. These kind of folks are in their own mental prison and the brainwash job they accepted as so, is so embedded within their minds, they wouldn't know what was really real if it stood right in front of them.  

    What if folks pulled their heads out and started with an internal approach instead of the external approach? So many are waiting for the second coming because they read it out of a book that has been edited so many times by the glorious and holy Roman Catholic church, edited with lies galore and they still choose to believe it. Simply because they haven't applied their hearts and want to promote their agenda. And we end up dealing with those agendas and I will tell you what, it's boring as all get out. Redundant, disempowering, fear porn, so that humanity will never find its potential.

    It's quite simple for me. I have already worked through my fears and traumas, pain and the rest of it. So for me whatever gets posted along these lines is just a waste of my time. You can't help someone who doesn't want help to begin with. They are so comfortable in their fear state, they won't let it go. But they will ask more second-hand questions, knowing they won't get the truth. It's like a rigged game with them to maybe sound superior to everyone else, disguising themselves as a victim, so you don't hurt their feelings, and so they can continue with their own agenda spreading disempowerment. It's quite frankly a disease. More like a psyop if you ask me, with a personality that refuses simple common sense and sound reasoning.

    And if you don't play the game with them, well, you are going to hell. Can you hear me now?

    These guys remind me of missionaries of belief.








    Keep the laughter coming. Thanks Swanny! Thubs Up

    Yes, thank you Swanny cheers

    Sometimes there is a lot of negativity on this website and many more like it, and it really only serves to generate more negativity in those who care about this planet and all those on it. So many of us take it all far, far too seriously IMHO. We forget temporarily that being light, in all its many ways, is good.

    A good laugh is so healing at times like these. So Flowers for you Swanny for reminding me of that, yet again!

    When will I learn!!! Razz

    Echo :- Cheerful

    Those who don't feel this Love pulling them like a river, those who don't drink dawn like a cup of spring water or take in sunset like supper, those who don't want to change, let them sleep. This Love is beyond the study of theology, that old trickery and hypocrisy. If you want to improve your mind that way, sleep on. I've given up on my brain. I've torn the cloth to shreds and thrown it away. If you're not completely naked, wrap your beautiful robe of words around you, and sleep. -- Rumi

    Much Love for You Morpheus

    It seems so much is going on with family, friends and us these days.. one would think timelines are converging and we're all moving at an accelerated pace. We got the container unloaded, the shed built to store things until next Spring when we can go through it all.

    Drove spouse to the Walla Walla, WA airport to fly down to Sacramento, CA to meet up with family, pick up our car that was shipped to there and drive it back here, all the while keeping track of weather hoping it doesn't snow as this vehicle isn't a 4-wheel drive. Of course something was wrong with it and it's currently in the shop for repairs. (sigh)

    Fall is spectacular this year. We are surrounded with Tamarack pine trees where their needs turn yellow gold before falling to the ground. All along the high mountain tree line are Tamaracks looking like candle flames among the dark pines. The creek was iced over but a water spirit in the form of a bubble would travel along looking much like an long worm. Some pond areas have melted, breath taking photos taken.

    Sunday night I experienced a powerful lucid dream. I was in this huge mansion type residence of a very wealthy individual. As I was looking out though a passage way, a large healthy looking blank panther appeared moving in our direction. Of course my practical side kicked in and I said, "call the police and shut the doors." Shortly afterwards I was wandering around this elaborate layout the thought that crossed my mind is.. This type of environment is just too much, it's overwhelming. At that level of wealth, one has no privacy. Where can one go and enjoy some solitude without someone unannounced popping up. However, the black panther energy has been with me every since.  I looked the dream symbol up. Black panther dreams often show a protective, powerful presence in your life. This is a first for that type of animal in my dreams. Awesome.

    I'm wondering if we should just start a "DEAR DIARY" Thread where everyone can post updates to what's going on in their lives. I enjoy reading what others are up to. Being a semi-recluse hermit.. I don't get out much. Yet enjoy reading about others daily adventures. Our daughter purchase a an inflatable T-Rex halloween costume this year and went trick or treating down Main Street. Scared the cat to death, who took off like a shot and went to hide in the bedroom under the covers. Too funny.

    Here's a little present.


    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hdmvMc7TZn0
    528Hz - Whole Body Regeneration - Full Body Healing | Emotional & Physical Healing

    Math scientist Victor Showell describes 528 as fundamental to the ancient Pi, Phi, and the Golden Mean evident throughout natural design. Vic Showell and John Stuart Reid (a pioneer in acoustic research and cymatic measurements) have proven that 528 is essential to the sacred geometry of circles and spirals consistent with DNA structuring and hydrosonic restructuring.

    ► Full album with 9 tracks available on iTunes ► https://apple.co/2MURccE

    528hz More than any sound previously discovered, the “LOVE frequency” resonates at the heart of everything. It connects your heart, your spiritual essence.

    The Love frequency is the “Miracle” note of the original Solfeggio musical scale. Independently confirmed by researchers, these core creative frequencies were used by ancient priests and healers in advanced civilizations to manifest miracles and produce blessings.

    Learn more from Dr. Leonard Horowitz's website:
    http: 528Revolution.com,

    And his latest book, The Book of 528: Prosperity Key of Love at youtube link above.

    I appreciate the experiences and perspectives of everyone on this site (even when I don't specifically and satisfyingly respond to their posts). Carol, that Mansion and Panther story had similar components to a particular Art Bell interview. You might even know what I'm talking about. It involved a famous person in a San Francisco mansion (with a caller from Indio). That's all I'm going to say about that. Car trouble sucks (especially when travelling long-distances). I had an engine blow-up south of Portland while on the way to the Seattle area (approximately 3 years ago) and had to use a U-Haul truck and trailer to get the car home (to use as a parts-car for my newer car). Regarding the Bible and Second-Hand Information, I don't go to church, and I post exclusively on a Non-Christian Website. I use the Bible as a Stage-Prop for my Religious and Political Science-Fiction (where I explore certain obscure doctrines and theories). It's complex and contradictory, but that's what I do. I'm NOT trying to convert ANYONE, and I don't take up offerings or sell books. The Believers and Unbelievers HATE Me (for very different reasons). I use my threads as a primitive DIARY where I reveal a lot of embarrassing stuff (which includes grandiose and delusional theories about myself). If I completely rejected the Bible and Christianity, I'd probably gravitate toward some New-Age Guru (which would still involve second-hand delusion and deception). I don't do OBE's, Seances, Channeling, Acid, Orgone, or Anything Creepy, so I'm mostly stuck with second-hand research (except when Astral-Travelers and Ancient-Egyptian Deities mess with me). I hate my life, and I just made the coffee. Namaste and Godspeed.

    No need to do creepy stuff Oxy.

    Instead you may wish one day to get off that tree, jump off that cliff and learn to paint the universe.
    And then and only then...gradually... unlearn everything that you know about it.

    Monet Refuses The Operation

    Doctor, you say there are no haloes
    around the streetlights in Paris
    and what I see is an aberration
    caused by old age, an affliction.
    I tell you it has taken me all my life
    to arrive at the vision of gas lamps as angels,
    to soften and blur and finally banish
    the edges you regret I don't see,
    to learn that the line I called the horizon
    does not exist and sky and water,
    so long apart, are the same state of being.

    Fifty-four years before I could see
    Rouen cathedral is built
    of parallel shafts of sun,
    and now you want to restore
    my youthful errors: fixed
    notions of top and bottom,
    the illusion of three-dimensional space,
    wisteria separate
    from the bridge it covers.

    What can I say to convince you
    the Houses of Parliament dissolves
    night after night to become
    the fluid dream of the Thames?
    I will not return to a universe
    of objects that don't know each other,
    as if islands were not the lost children
    of one great continent. The world
    is flux, and light becomes what it touches,
    becomes water, lilies on water,
    above and below water,
    becomes lilac and mauve and yellow
    and white and cerulean lamps,
    small fists passing sunlight
    so quickly to one another
    that it would take long, streaming hair
    inside my brush to catch it.

    To paint the speed of light!
    Our weighted shapes, these verticals,
    burn to mix with air
    and change our bones, skin, clothes
    to gases. Doctor,
    if only you could see
    how heaven pulls earth into its arms
    and how infinitely the heart expands
    to claim this world, blue vapor without end.

    by poet Lisel Mueller

    The painter Claude Monet had cataracts and when his doctor wanted to perform surgery, Monet refused.  He wanted to paint light.  He loved seeing the blurred edges of everything as evidence of our interconnection.

    Oxy is an artist of words yet to put a brush to canvas with paint.

    Just to get the paint flowing, one can easily order the paint by numbers kit from Amazon (even a Bob Ross painting kit) and play classical music while painting.

    Ahh, how delightful.

    Journey - Wheel in the Sky

    Lyrics:

    Winter is here again oh Lord,
    Haven't been home in a year or more
    I hope she holds on a little longer
    Sent a letter on a long summer day
    Made of silver, not of clay
    I've been runnin' down this dusty road

    Wheel in the sky keeps on turnin'
    I don't know where I'll be tomorrow
    Wheel in the sky keeps on turnin'

    Slight change of view here, haha.  I AM learning, constantly, thanks to the Internet via sites like this and others like it.  What I forgot, yet again, is not to get negative about the negatives or let them wear me down, It’s all part of learning discrimination, isn’t it.

    Re those negatives, I’ve also remembered that what I’m learning through reading of others experiences and views (‘good’ and ‘bad’) is all the different ways these reactive bodies we are in can get us caught in the honey pot/prison that this reality is for our spirits; especially all those beliefs, religions and views that make us feel ‘less than’ and needy in some way of someone or something ‘more’; that keep us sucked in, thinking or feeling we're ‘under’ OR ‘over’ others.

    No, it’s how we discriminate and choose to respond to these lessons that make the difference IMO, to be able to happily leave this honey pot/prison behind with no regrets when the time comes.

    I’m with Brook and Morpheus Lionhawk --- out of here completely when my time comes!!

    P.S. Love the butterflies Susan, and the 'My Diary' thread sounds great Carol.  Cheerful

    For Sanicle and Rochelle. It was kind of weird I found this as of late. I have been watching, My Self Reliance, who lives in Ontario. Great Youtube channel. What I had wanted to do was to go to South Carolina and Georgia and find some Amethyst. Of course, doing all this with Zeus {ambulance}. So Bryan decides to go to Canada. Check this out.

    I have a confession to make. I have been watching Bob Ross as of late. That guy was so gifted. He painted over 30,000 paintings.

    Love the Butterflies, Susan. Thanks for posting those. Hope you are doing great!

    The Native Americans have their take on spirit animals. Interesting as to their take on Panthers. Part of my experiences proved what they said. And that's another story.

    Dear Diary,

    Today was a nice Fall day with plenty of sunshine. Going to get cold tonight, like in the lower twenties. So, I decided to make a big pot of soup. Seemed appropriate. Turned out great! My friend, Kate called me up today and informed me that she was going to send me a painting that she painted. All this paint stuff seems to be in my atmosphere these days. Still waiting on a call from my lawyer. Hopefully soon. Today, was a good day to spend reflecting on my life. Had been ill earlier in the week and still recuperating, so I didn't have much energy to do anything else. Considering everything I have been through, my life has been a blessing. I could also say, lives, as my life has had many ups and downs, levels of experience, that even amazes me when I look back upon it. And we are not done yet, despite all the stress these last few years. I am concerned about all the weight I have lost this year. Got to change that. All this being said, I love my life. And now, in my elder years, I would prefer to be with those who love theirs.

    Till the next time we meet Dear Diary, Namaste'

    Good evening Lionhawk. I'm sorry that you've not been feeling well. Hope you recover soon, We love Bob Ross and just got all of my painting supplies from Hawaii. Also have a number of Bob Ross videos purchased from Amazon. Got some of his painting supplies from there as well.

    Dear Diary,

    Well it's a beautiful fall day here with the night down around 24° and almost 50 at midday. Spouse has been in California visiting family and picking up our vehicle that was shipped there. Of course it ended up in the shop with another 1k in repair bills before he could drive it home. Future tip... don't purchase vehicles with computers or a hybrid. Cost a fortune in repairs when they need to go in for something. He had to stop at the repair shop again this morning before driving back up through California, Nevada, Idaho and is now in Oregon a few hours away. So to celebrate his return I prepped a turkey meatloaf but somehow left the unlit gas burner on after cooking the onions and mushrooms. Needless to say a few hours later the gas had moved from the kitchen throughout the house. I was afraid of blowing up the house with the propane fireplace on in the living room. ARRRGHH.. again! By now it's getting dark and below freezing outside but still had to open up the doors and windows to air out the house - and turn all the fans on. Of course the cat escaped and when outside to hide under the porch. I think the dog, who was lying down on the floor next to me (was there to stretch out upper back) would have dashed outside as well. All the fans were still going along with the windows/doors open and by the time our daughter walked in from work. I was up off the floor by then. She gets nervous if she sees us on the floor. She gave me the what-for due to her cat being outside.

    Both spouse (who has been calling throughout the day to chat while he's driving) and daughter chastised me again over this particular situation. To comfort myself I made a nice hot cup of Chai tea and cut off a wedge of fresh baked Artisian French bread to eat for dinner. Then went back to the computer to play Enya, Celtic Women, Sarah Brightman and the singing tenors.

    This little story just goes to illustrate how one can have an adventure without ever having to leave the house. BTW.. spouse refers to me as Mrs. Magoo. And there is good reason why. It's amazing that I've survived this long given all the the mishaps over the years. Everyone is convince that my Guardian Angles are working overtime on a regular basis. So of course being so well protected, blessed with such good fortune, is awesome. What a relief. I didn't gas myself, or the animals - and I didn't BLOW up the house. I call that being very BLESSED!



    BTW.. here is the turkey meatloaf recipe for anyone whose interested:

    This turkey meatloaf is packed with mushrooms, but that’s what makes it so darn delicious. Lots of finely chopped mushrooms add flavor and moisture, often missing from the typical turkey meatloaf. When choosing which mushrooms to add, white button mushrooms will work perfectly fine. For more flavor, try one or a combination of brown cremini, portobello, or shiitake mushrooms. The mushrooms need to be very finely chopped. You can do this by hand or use a food processor.

    Makes 6 Servings - preheat oven to 400°

    Ingredients
    8 ounces mushrooms, trimmed and very finely chopped
    1 medium onion, peeled and finely chopped
    2 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
    1 tablespoon oil
    1 teaspoon kosher salt
    1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
    7 tablespoons ketchup, divided (try our homemade ketchup)
    1 cup (60 grams) panko bread crumbs
    1/3 cup (80 ml) milk
    2 large eggs, lightly beaten
    1 1/4 pound ground turkey (92% lean)

    Directions
    Prepare Meatloaf


    Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly oil a rimmed baking sheet (or 9-inch by 13-inch baking pan) lined with aluminum foil.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened; about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in the mushrooms, a 1/2-teaspoon of salt, and a 1/4-teaspoon of pepper. Cook until the mushrooms give off their liquid and it boils away; about 10 minutes.

    Transfer the onions and mushrooms to a large bowl, and then stir in the Worcestershire sauce and 3 tablespoons of the ketchup. Set aside to cool for 5 minutes.

    
Meanwhile, combine the breadcrumbs and milk in a small bowl.
Stir the breadcrumb mixture and the eggs into the mushrooms and onions. Using a fork or your hands, gently mix in the turkey, a 1/2-teaspoon of salt and a 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. The mixture will be very wet.

    
Form the meatloaf into a 9-inch by 5-inch oval in the middle of the prepared baking sheet. Spread the remaining 4 tablespoons of ketchup on top.

    Bake Meatloaf
    Bake the meatloaf until an instant read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meatloaf registers 170 degrees F, about 50 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing.

    I think your meatloaf would have totally separated if the house blew up. Gad Woman! lol! And when you hear the tale of Jesus walking on water, here comes Carol, bomb in the house! Crazy Happy But I do understand your followup all too well, so you're off the hook! Huge Grin






    Your meatloaf recipe might be a good alternative to having a big bird, in a few weeks. With a little twist. Put some stuffing in it. Stuff the meatloaf. Insanely Happy So let's say you're having 8 or 9 people coming over for T-day dinner. You cook a giant turkey. 6 or 7 of you will not get a drum stick. 6 or 7 of you won't get a thigh or a wing. It took me 40 years to figure out a way to increase the odds. Get two turkeys. You double the odds right there. More tender too! I don't know everything. Such as if doing it that way, if it would yield more stuffing. Big Grin 2

    Funny, as I just found this. Never expected a result on the old search bar.






    I do know this. If you were here at my house, you wouldn't go home hungry. When Brook was in her battle last year, I made sure she ate good. Diet is key! She loved my cooking. Especially, when I made cookies for Christmas. I made thiry dozen one year and put them in the freezer. Weeks later... I went to get me a couple. Not a cookie was found in the freezer.  Crybaby I had made several kinds including a secret recipe. Anyways, I made sure that she also ate what she loved to eat. I know she misses coffee. She had a passion for coffee. Starbucks. How fitting that their emblem was of ISIS.






    Dear Diary,

    Feel a little better today. Rough week, health-wise. Getting ready for Tuesday night's cold snap. They say 19 degrees. Can't believe a month ago on Oct. 4th, it was 94 degrees. I did a session and figured out where these mysterious sounds being reported in various places on the globe, are coming from. And why. We will see if Father Winter comes in like the last two years. Got to prepare for it. Glad my house is all-electric. Less chance of blowing up.  Oooyeah 1


    Love ya, Carol!  JT

    This recipe is for you Lionhawk.

    Next to French Onion Soup this is my favorite soup hands down.

    Turkey Tetrazzini

    Ingredients


    4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    1 onion chopped
    fresh chopped thyme leaves
    1 pound white mushrooms, quartered
    1 cup dry white wine (or sherry)
    1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper, plus more
    1/4 cup flour or corn starch for thickening mixed in cold water
    4 cups turkey or chicken broth, plus more if needed
    2 cups half and half or heavy cream (I use heavy cream
    One 8-ounce package cream cheese
    3 cups leftover Thanksgiving turkey, shredded or diced
    1 1/2 cups frozen green peas
    egg noodles
    bell pepper (red or orange) for color


    Directions

    Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat and add the garlic / onion.

    Throw in the mushrooms, wine, salt and pepper, and cook them, stirring occasionally, until the liquid reduces by half, 3 to 4 minutes.

    Sprinkle the flour all over, then stir to combine.

    Pour in the broth, stir and continue to cook until the sauce is nice and thick, 3 to 4 minutes.

    Add the cream cheese and stir until it mixes in. (Don't worry if it seems a little lumpy at first. That will go away!)

    Add the turkey, peas, red bell pepper.

    Stir until everything is well combined, then add salt and pepper to taste.

    Add noodles and stir to combine. If the mixture is too thick, splash in 1/2 cup of broth. (I usually add more wine)

    Optional (if you want this as a casserole)

    Pour the whole shebang into a large casserole dish and even out the surface.

    Sprinkle on the panko breadcrumbs and bake it until the crumbs are golden brown and the casserole is bubbly, 20 to 25 minutes.
