One has to wonder if sunsets have always been like this throughout the ages. Did jesus enjoy such sights ?

I don’t know, but we’re lucky to be able to see such things.

This one is 9 photos painstakingly and lovingly weaved together to form one beauty of a photo with Photoshop Photomerge.

The Year I Was Born

Well some of the things that happened in the year that I was born were the following. The first apple computer went on sale, Jimmy Carter was the president of The United States, the first oil flows through the Trans Alaskan Oil Pipeline, Quebec adopts French as their official language. Elvis Presley died from a heart attack at the age of 42. Some of the popculture and movies in 1977 were Rocky, King Kong, A Star Is Born, and Smoky and the Bandit. I have watched all of these and they were all wonderful movies.

The News That Interests Me Most

Sunday News after the Passing

I like to read the front page, and then work my way through the paper to the comics. The comics are the best part of the paper. Many of the articles that are in the newspaper are interesting to read. But I live in a small town so the articles are short and to the point. The one section of the paper that I do not care too much about is Sports. About the only thing that I like to watch with my husband is the UFC. I love to watch a good fight.

Paper or Digital?

Writing home

Well considering that I like to do a little of both. I have more luck with writing on paper than anything else. Even though writing on an electronic device comes in handy while I am work. I have written in the last two months over 30,000 words between paper and microsoft word. Along with taking notes with my phone while I am at work. Either way once I start writing it is hard to stop sometimes. I love to write and talk about things that I have learned over the years. I also like to write about what happens in my life, who I meet and talk to it is surprising how much you can write if you have the will and want to do it.

Blowing Off Steam


One of the ways that I like to blow off steam is to write because when I write I can write the most terrible feelings, or thoughts down on paper. Sometimes it helps me and sometimes it does not. But once I write it down on paper it is done and over with until I find the paper that I wrote it on. Sometimes it is nice to sit down and read what I have written over the years. Some of it is pretty funny when I finally re-read what I have written. While working sometimes I would like to go in the freezer and scream really loud and that seems to calm me down as well. But writing is the best way for me right now because I can release those thoughts out of my brain.

Losing Touch with Old Friends

This is my Opinion about friends, and Acquaintance's.

This is for you my dear friends, thanks for all your kind and generous support! I will be back on flickr on the 9th of August 2010. Have all a wonderful time ahead! Thank you all so much! My Graditude and warm wishes to you all my friends! 🙂

Well in some way's this is a hard question to answer. However, in my opinion I used to have friends through highschool, and have made some acquaintance's throughout my life. Many of whom I do not consider friends. Let's define the meaning's of each shall we. A friend is a person whom one knows, likes, and trusts. There is not many people that I trust with anything in my life except for my family. Other people who say that they are your friends will talk about you behind your back to other people that they call friends. So everything that you say ends up all across the neighborhood, or even sometimes in another town. The definition goes on to say that a friend is a person whom one knows; an acquaintance. There are many acquaintance's that I have had over the thirty-four years but the only one's that I think of as friends are the one's that stick behind my actions and is there for me when I need them the most. All these friends that I have had over the years were not there when I needed someone the most. Furthermore, the definition goes onto say that a friend is one who sympathizes with, supports, or patronizes a group, cause, or movement. When friends say they are friends they are interested in what you have to say. A true friend will always be there in your times of joy, happiness, sorrow, pain, and so on. The French use the word Moname which means a true friend someone that is there for you when you need it the most.

Now let's look at the definition of acquaintance which, states that an acquaintance is knowledge of a person that is less intimate than friendship. This means that they acknowledge that you are there but could really care less about your life, and what you do with it. Some acquaintance's that I have had over the years helped me through some rough spots. However, they were not considered friends but only acquaintance's because they were only there for that one certain part in my life. A true friend would manage to be there for every single part of it. The good times, and bad times. I would not expect a friend to be there for every instance but the instances that were most important to me they should be by my side if they were a true friend.
