Film film film day was fab fab fab!!!!!! Even thought I feel like I'm going to die now! Oh wow are my knees sore! But I can’t complain too much because this time last year I wouldn’t have been able to walk around at all like we did today.
4 full rolls of film and one roll still in the camera to get processed. I’ll put them in tomorrow and get them the day after. So be prepared to look at film! I took two rolls of redscale I just hope they turn out good! More Physio tomorrow next week is supposed to be the last of it I hope!
Anyway this laptop is heavy and I'm tired!
Oh yeah… thank you Michael for being the most wonderful husband/friend/person/lover…. EVER! I had a super time today! I just love you so very much! You make me so happy! I never thought I could be happy like this! XOXO
Oops I almost forgot my shot for the day! I was busy getting things ready for tomorrow… take a guess at what tomorrows plan is!
Film! Film! Film!!!!!! Woo hoo!
So for today this crappy last minute shot will have to do! I most likely won’t use the film for my 365 tomorrow as I will have to get it processed but maybe in the next few days I will have some film shots up!
If you dreamt you didn’t have a dream… would you know it?
One last thing…
Thanks everyone for reading that super long blog yesterday! I really appreciate it because what I said really does mean something to me! So thank you! :~)
How Did We Do?
I'm just wondering how we have done as a society? What shape is the world in? And where are we going now?
What do you think?
I think we are doing really bad and if we don’t change things really soon we will all be slaves!
The world is being told lies!
Don’t lay down and be a victim! Do something! Do it for all of the people that were victims and are not here to speak and do it for the future. Stand up! Don’t let governments tell you what you see… look and see for yourself!
The answers are out there!
The world is being manipulated. Every day people are dying… they are being killed by government’s greed and need for control and money and by every person that turns a blind eye…
We have the power to make the world a good place for every person here! And I think each and every person on this planet has the right to be free and live a happy life without fear and war and hunger… and without lies!
Look for yourself and tell every person you know what you find!
Have a look at these or even just one of them…
And if you look and you still see what you are told to see… well then you didn’t lose anything… did you?
And what about Waco? 76 people died there and over 20 were children.
The U.S. Bill Of Rights Amendment 3 says…
No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any
house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of
war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.
I don’t believe everything on all of these sites nor do I agree with what some of these people represent or what they may have done but I do believe if accused of something every person has a right to a fair trial… and most of all we have the right to know the truth no matter what the truth is!
Make sure you do one thing…
The worst thing that will happen is you will get answers! And if you don’t get answers there is a reason…
Oh yeah could someone please tell me what the fuck is this about????
This is the world as we know it….
Here are a few things I think everyone should be aware of.
Less than one per cent of what the world spent every year on weapons was needed to put every child into school by the year 2000 and yet it didn’t happen.
Governments are giving money in the trillions to everyone but the ones who really need it…
Why do we let these things happen? And isn’t it still happening right now? Is starvation a form of genocide?
What about this? Why wasn’t anyone held accountable for murdering over 200,000 innocent people? Wasn’t this a war crime? Look at the photos of children burned and dying and tell me this was right and acceptable? Harry Truman was no better the Hitler!
I could go on and on… this is a sad look at the world now… where is it going? What will life on this planet be like in 50 years? Will we all be tagged? Will we have any privacy? Will we believe everything we are told? Will there be any individuals? Will we be like robots?
I know there are answers to all of this… I know there are solutions to all of the problems we face as the human race. The answers lie within us and we need to find them and get them out into the world! and more than anything else….
Do something! Don’t believe what your told believe what you see with your eyes!
You don’t have to agree with my conspiracy thoughts but you have to admit this place we all call home could be better… so DO SOMETHING!
Stand up and be counted… don’t lay down and die!
When you look at the news and see what’s happening in this only world we have… what do you think?
How did we do?
Could we do better?
When you see something that’s wrong do something about it! Do it for yourself! Don’t be a sheep!
I know I keep going on about this but I don’t see anything changing! I could sit and say…. I'm just one person I can’t do anything… but I can! I can and I will keep trying till things change! And every person on this planet should be doing the same thing! We should all be on the same page! I think we are except for the people in power! They are trying their best to control us and I don’t want to be controlled! Do you? Are you?
How you might ask… good question!
I searched “how can I change the world”
And found this…
Not a bad start!
Don’t accept things because we are supposed to! Stand up!!!!! DO SOMETHING!
Do something today! Right now! Go on! You can! If it’s sending an email to your local government or just standing up and saying what you believe! Do it!
I was irritated by something today… “Black Eyed Peas” song “I Just can’t get enough” the start and the end…. They are asking people to donate money to Japan. That’s great but why don’t they practice what they preach!
I posted this on their video on YouTube…
“i love this song but i have a problem with the message at the start and end of this video....
"thought and prayers" are lovely but if the black eyed peas were really concerned about the Japanese people why didnt they do more than urge fans to donate????? what a cop out! it seems to me with all of the money they have they could have easily donated ALL of their profits to help! WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE WORLD???????????????? cheers to Demi Lovato who did donate 1 million dollars to japan!”
I looked up everywhere and could find no sign that they gave anything… maybe they did and if so then I'm just wrong. I really really hope I am! I have tried to find someone to email on their behalf but no luck there either! I will keep trying…
My point is… guess what! Do something! Call people out! Act on things you think and believe! Don’t just sit back and accept things!
So ok I guess I have said enough for the moment….
Just do me a favour. If you made it to the end of this…
Don’t let this be the end of it! :~)
Not my horse… but
This lovely creature is not my horse but I did have a horse when I was about 9 or 10… we had him till I was about 16 or 17.
His name was Thunder and he was quite a horse! He loved to drink Dr. Pepper and eat watermelon! If he saw that anyone had either of them he would whinny and stomp the ground till he was offered what he wanted! He was stubborn but a really cool horse. I had a saddle for him but sometimes I would ride without it. If I did and my butt slipped off to one side just a bit he would stop dead in his tracks so I wouldn’t fall off.
One thing about Thunder… he did not like dogs! Where we lived there was quite a lot of land that I could go where I pleased but our neighbours (about a ¾ of a mile away) had dogs and if I went anywhere near them their dogs would come out and bark and try, stupidly to chase Thunder. It was simple… when the dogs got too close I would let the reins loose and hold on tight… Thunder would take care of the rest! If they got close enough he would grab them by the hair on their backs and give them a little toss! That would usually do the trick and we would be left alone.
We had three dogs along with Thunder and they got along for the most part bar one…. Smokey was a husky and a smart dog with a tendency to get into trouble! One day I was sitting in our front room in the trailer… I was watching TV and I saw the horse run by the window…. Then I saw the dog pass the window chasing the horse… I thought this dog has bitten off more than he could chew! So I watched and I learned…
A few minutes later… I saw the dog running back the other way away from the horse who was now chasing the dog!
A few minutes later… Thunder ran passed the window again with Smokey behind him…
And on they went with their game taking turns chasing and being chased! It was just too funny and cute!
The two also shared a fence when the Smokey was in his kennel… sometimes if Thunder was in a tortuous mood he would stand by Smokey’s fence…. The dog would go crazy barking and jumping on the fence trying his very very best to irritate Thunder…. But! Thunder would not budge…. Instead he would hang his head and drop it nose to the ground… dog still going bonkers and then…. Thunder would blow out his nose really hard so the dirt would fly up everywhere and he would stare… Poor Smokey could only take so much and then would give up and shamefully turn his tail and hide in his dog house! They had a very unusual relationship to say the least!
Thunder was a super smart horse. He did NOT like my mother! It was so very funny every time without fail when she would try to ride him he would faithfully pitch her off! She would get so mad and frustrated! Lol it was just too too funny! (Trust me she deserved it)
Thunder was quirky and another one of his quirks was water….. He didn’t like it! I found this out the hard way… one day we were out for a little exploration just the two of us and came upon a very VERY small creek with a very minimal amount of water in it. He put his head down for what I thought was a little drink but I was wrong! He made a leap that would have cleared any Grand National fence! I thought I was going to die of fright! I didn’t fall off but I also didn’t go near water with him again!
Another day I was in the trailer and it started to move! It was shaking like what I imagine an earthquake would be like or a tornado! I ran outside quick and looked around…. Only to find Thunder swaying from side to side with his butt against the house scratching it and looking very happy!!!!!
Thunder moved to my grandparent’s house when my dad and I moved into town… funny they don’t want horses in apartments! And eventually we had to let him move on to another home… where no doubt he made his mark on them too!
Thunder was always so much fun and I really could go on and on about him and his funny stories but I think I’ll stop… For the moment anyway!
Still sick but…
I still feel like crap but what can you do about a cold? Not a lot besides napping on the couch and doing the usual amount of complaining!
Right so yesterday’s thoughts…
I was a paramedic in Texas and then a care assistant in Ireland for about a year. My paramedic qualifications didn’t transfer over here at the time and even if it had I wouldn’t have wanted that job again… so I worked at the hospital as a care assistant and if you don’t know what that is (I didn’t) it is I guess a nurses aid or something like that. It was the first time I got to know patients and establish a relationship with them. There is not much time for that on an ambulance… but in the hospital I got to know many patients. I really enjoyed that part of it too! It was so much more personal than I had been used to. And I felt really good about knowing people and helping them.
One of the first patients I got to know was a man named Danny. He had lost his slippers at x-ray and his wife had asked me if I could find them… so I went on the slipper hunt! But the slippers had slipped me and they were never to be found…
Danny was in the hospital for a long while and in that time even though I was moved all over the hospital I got to know him and his family. He and his wife had been married for over 30 years and they had 4 or 5 children. They had raised their family and after the children had left the two of them really got to spend time together and enjoy each other… they travelled all over Ireland on his business and she went with him everywhere. They had not been away from one another at all for well over ten years.
Danny didn’t seem to me to be very ill when I first met him but he was in the hospital for a reason…
Eventually he was moved to a private room and that only means one thing…
I was making a bed in a three room bay just across for the private room of Danny. When his wife walked out of the room I knew… I walked over to her tears in her eyes and mine too. She threw her arms around me…. we both cried and stood there hugging each other like we were hanging on. She said quietly under her choked breath… “He always said it was the two of us and no one else mattered… not even the kids.” The kids had been there with their father and mother till about 10 minutes before he died. … she said she knew he would only go when it was just the two of them and no one else. She knew her husband well and she was right.
He was the first patient I had lost…
He was also the first patient I had to assist in preparation of the body for the family before he was taken away… it wasn’t easy I won’t lie. The nurse and I held our tears while we did our jobs… the window was opened so Danny could go and be free… he was so frail and not the same looking man I had met many months before. But I felt honoured to be one of the last to do something for him.
We washed and shaved him… changed his bed and when we finished he looked peaceful…
He was not the last patient I knew that died while I worked there, nor was his body the last I would help to prepare for the short trip across the car park to the morgue.
But as long as I live…
I will never forget Danny or his wife…
We went out today to the graveyard and wow was it cold and windy! So cold in fact that now I'm laying on the couch and fell like total shit… fever, coughing and shivering and generally feeling sick…
I had something to say today too but I just feel rotten so it will have to wait till tomorrow…
Day 144 on time!
Isn’t it good to tell people what you think! Really!
Today was a good day!
I know I have fallen behind a bit with the 365…. I think I have hit a bit of a wall! I have always wanted to try to link my shot with the blog but I have failed as of late! Oh well! I guess it happens! I'm sure I will get back on track soon! I feel good mojo is about!
It was a really great day! We had lunch at the quay… the tide was out and it’s funny how different it looks! I don’t like swans because they scare me but I do like to take photos of them (from a distance anyway!)
We are also out of the magic plant at the moment… so its sobriety for a little while! Oh how I wish I was in Amsterdam! Even it was just to walk down the street and smell how wonderful the air is there! :~P ohhhh the trials of a pothead!
Oh yes and I took a roll of film in today!!!!! woo hoo! I will pick them up tomorrow yipeeee! I don’t even know what photos I took so I’ll have a surprise when I look at them!
Just heard a really cool song…
Ok so I guess that was a bit of a ramble…. About… nothing!
A day late!
I took this yesterday…. Even thought I don’t, at this moment in time know yet what photo I will post but no matter what it is it was took on the day! The other thing is I know what ever shot I put up will be a crap one! But! No matter… what does matter is that yesterday was a GREAT day!
We had a super cool day! It was a little bizarre too… we always get weird things happening to us. And what I mean by that is it’s really funny the things that seem to be connected to us… yesterday… we had many connected things… my great grandmothers name was Fern… there were 2 Ferns on TV last night within an hour of each other… (Not to weird I guess!)
The super cool and really weird thing was… we were watching “don’t tell the bride” the Irish version and…. Drum roll please… the woman that did the service was the very woman that married Michael and I in 2003! How funny it was to see her on TV! I couldn’t believe it but it was her!
Yesterday just had a really great feel to it! There was a super vibe here! I checked today to see if we had any connections to May 23…
My great grandmother died 2 weeks from it on June 6 in … and my other great grandmother was born on the 22 of May… don’t know if they count or not but there was definitely something in the air!
The president paid a visit to Ireland too and I have to say we watched the whole thing all day long! I don’t know what I was expecting but I was surprised in a good way!
Anyway a few other things happened too and it was a super day with an amazing vibe for whatever reason and woo hoo!!!!!! Great days are….. Great!
I know there are many more great days ahead!
I think we must be on a conspiracy week here! Lol seems like that’s all we are watching! It’s cool thought I love it! Tonight it’s “Loose Change-An American Coup” we are about to watch it now so I'm sure by 11:00 I will be suitably appalled!
To be honest I only just remembered my shot! Oops…. So I was messing about with a DVD and got a really cool rainbow!
My granddad wrote a book about rainbows…. It was never published but I have a copy of it…
Anyway sorry for the short post but I'm away to be shocked amazed and to question everything even more!
I have decided to do a Project 365! Here is just a bit of info behind every pic.
I have an Etsy shop now! Check it out here!!!!
