The Wiccan Rede

Bide the Wiccan Laws we must In Perfect Love and Perfect Trust. Live and let live. Fairly take and fairly give. Cast the Circle thrice about To keep the evil spirits out. To bind the spell every time Let the spell be spake in rhyme. Soft of eye and light of touch, Speak little, listen much. Deosil go by the waxing moon, Chanting out the Witches' Rune. Widdershins go by the waning moon, Chanting out the baneful rune. When the Lady's moon is new, Kiss the hand to her, times two. When the moon rides at her peak, Then your heart's desire seek, Heed the North wind's mighty gale, Lock the door and drop the sail. When the wind comes from the South, Love will kiss thee on the mouth. When the wind blows from the West, Departed souls will have no rest. When the wind blows from the East, Expect the new and set the feast. Nine woods in the cauldron go, Burn them fast and burn them slow. Elder be the Lady's tree, Burn it not or cursed you'll be. When the Wheel begins to turn, Let the Beltane fires burn. When the Wheel has turned to Yule, Light the log and the Horned One rules. Heed ye Flower, Bush and Tree, By the Lady, blessed be. Where the rippling waters go, Cast a stone and truth you'll know. When ye have a true need, Hearken not to others' greed. With a fool no season spend, Lest ye be counted as his friend. Merry meet and merry part, Bright the cheeks and warm the heart. Mind the Threefold Law you should, Three times bad and three times good. When misfortune is enow, Wear the blue star on thy brow. True in Love ever be, Lest thy lover's false to thee. Eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfill: An ye harm none, do what ye will.
- Blessed Be -

Playing with Time

I have a lot of on my hands these days, so I added some more html code to my blog page.
You might have noticed my 24 hour clock. I have had some comments on it, like "They have never seen one quite like that!", I realize some people can not read a 12 hour analog (round) clock not to mention my 24 hour clock. So I have added a 24 hour digital clock for the central time zone in the USA and the clock for London, England. Time around the world starts there at London and goes west, so that at noon in London it is just 6 O'clock in the morning here in Alabama. And they wonder why we are still in bed!! LOL...

If that is not enough click on the icon of the world map.

Made a Friend Today

I was taking the trash out in the rain today,  my new friend was just sitting there in the driveway, wet, cold, not saying much, but I knew I had to provide some warmth and dry shelter. That is something we all need, right? I asked for a name, but I have not got one yet, maybe after warming up a bit, conversation will be better. I am not even sure what gender my friend is yet. You know it is impolite to get to personal when you first make friends.  I hate to be so rude to ask why is he/she so white and smooth, do I dare ask?  I thought I would post this picture and see if anyone knew the origin of he/she. Maybe even had a name.  Maybe what kind of food to fix? I really feel has dumb as a rock because I can not answer these questions. Maybe my other friends may have answers. Okay here is a picture I took while he/she was in front of my laptop.

Please email, or reach me through Skype, so we are not just sitting around like a rock doing nothing. Thanks Andy

The San Mai III Gurkha Kukri and What is a San Mai blade?

Cold Steel has a blade that I have taken a fancy to((The San Mai III® Gurkha Kukri (#35ATCJ)) but it is so expensive, Why?, I am not sure but it uses San Mai blade construction. They say - A simple way to think of San Mai III® blade construction is to imagine a sandwich: The meat center is hard, high carbon steel and the pieces of bread on either side are the lower-carbon, tough side panels. The edge of the blade should be hard to maximize edge holding ability, but if the entire blade was hard it could be damaged during the rigors of battle. For ultimate toughness the body of the blade must be able to withstand impact and lateral stresses. Toughness is generally associated with "softness" and "flexibility" in steel, so that, surprisingly, if a blade is made "tough" the edge won't be hard enough to offer superior edge holding. San Mai III® blades provides a blade with hard (higher carbon) steel in the middle for a keen, long lasting edge and tougher (lower-carbon) steel along the sides for flexibility.

It also uses a different steel called VG-1. When considering a new material for a performance upgrade for the Cold Steel® blades, we tested seven different grades of steel including Shiro 2, V-SP-2, 10A, 440C, VG-10, ATS 34, and VG-1. Physical testing for sharpness, edge retention, point strength, shock, and ultimate blade strength showed that while many of the steels had increased performance in one or two testing categories, only one, VG-1, showed the greatest performance increases in the most critical categories. With an outstanding ability to retain an edge and proven strength in point and blade tests, VG-1 will provide Cold Steel® customers with superior performance previously unavailable in a stainless steel blade.

Now don't take me wrong at this but, I think it is over priced at $650.00.  I really need my readers and friends to jump in here and help me prove this theory.  My gut just says "Man, this looks NICE but, $650.00 Really!!"   So talk to me tell why I should pay this kind of money for this knife.

Now look at these...Kukri Machetes.
They are offered by Cold Steel and they are in a price range  most of can afford. ($25-$30) They say the Kukri Machetes are workhorses.  I would really like to try them, but the dying question is why the price difference is so great between these and the San Mai III above?  Show me,  this brings to mind what people say that are from Missouri "Show me and Prove it!"

American Stonehenge: Monumental Instructions for the Post-Apocalypse

American Stonehenge?? It is so interesting, I wish I could see this in person. I am just learning Hebrew so I still can not make out what it is saying.... Could I have a little help please?  I stumbled on this after I grew very fond of "The Book of Eli", the more I read about this movie the more I want to dive into it.  Just look at the massive size of these slabs of rock!
"The story of the Georgia Guidestones began on a Friday afternoon in June 1979, when an elegant gray-haired gentleman showed up in Elbert County, made his way to the offices of Elberton Granite Finishing, and introduced himself as Robert C. Christian. He claimed to represent "a small group of loyal Americans" who had been planning the installation of an unusually large and complex stone monument. Christian had come to Elberton—the county seat and the granite capital of the world—because he believed its quarries produced the finest stone on the planet". [1]

Pig in the Blanket???

My Brother and my Friend, was telling about what Dad was going to fix for dinner tonight. I said that Dad was fron Chicago and his family cooked just a little bit different. What David and I would call "Pigs in the Blanket" was not what my Dad knew.  First Dad started with Sirloin steaks and slice them very thin. Dad encluded chopped onions as he wrapped the onion and steak in a roll surrounded by bacon. Held together with toothpicks. Then in a skillet with more onions and mushrooms if available, you fry them up.  Topped off with creamy mashed potatoes, brown gravy and your favorite vegetables, lightly steamed for best favor. Yes Dad's "Pig in the Blanket" is different on oh so good. Below I captured it on video as they were being cooked up... Yum, Yum. Sorry David, I know you are a Vegan, I am too, but the other half of me is pure Wolf.   LOL...

This is living...

Doo,  Man this is living, at it's best. I could see sitting there enjoying a hot meal cooked  over the open fire and a hot mug of chocolate. Then later wrapping and tucking myself up in my wool blanket - looking up into the clear night sky and counting all those wonderful stars and I fall fast asleep. Getting up in the cold morning, bring the camp fire back to life and enjoying a hot drink and chowing down on some biscuits and gravy... Yes that is Living the Good life.  Great video Doo, I hope you Bless us with many more to come. Thanks.

Nooma” is a play on the Greek root pneuma, which means wind, breath, spirit, or ghost. 

I lifted the words right from Nooma's page. I could not say it any better. I have watched all 24 of these short films. Rob Bell is profoundly simple and direct, yet he paints a truth that is so positive that it simply feels like it is the Master's plan along. Take a long at these films I am sure they will leave a profound statement on your heart and soul. Go to You Tube and check out the trailers or short films posted there or click on the link below. The 2nd film in the series, "FLAME", left me with a deeper sense of the the meaning of the word "Love". I just had to share this one film with you. Please enjoy.

"Jesus lived with the awareness that God is doing something, right here, right now, and anybody can be a part of it. He encouraged his listeners to search, to question, to wrestle with the implications of what he was saying and doing. He inspired, challenged, provoked, comforted, and invited people to be open to God’s work in this world. Wherever he went, whatever he did, Jesus started discussions about what matters most, because for Jesus, God is always inviting us to open our eyes and join in. NOOMA is a series of short films that explore our world from a perspective of Jesus. NOOMA is an invitation to search, question, and join the discussion."

Mid Winterday at the Pond

Yes, this is just a small clip of a mid winter day at the pond here at the Hays' place. Listen to the water was it rushs through the ice; as it flows into the pond. The weather on this day is nice, sunny, warm at 45(F) degrees. Temperatures should drop down to a comfortable 20(F) degrees tonight. Perfect weather to snuggle to up to and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate.   Be Blessed and Shalom my friends.
