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 -

The Meaning of Flag Draped Coffin

Did you know?

Meaning of Flag Draped Coffin

All Americans should be given this lesson. Those who think that America is an arrogant nation should really reconsider that thought. Our founding fathers used GOD's word and teachings to establish our Great Nation and I think it's high time Americans get re-educated about this Nation's history.

Pass it along and be proud of the country we live in and even more proud of those who serve to protect our 'GOD GIVEN' rights and freedoms.

I hope you take the time to read this ... To understand what the flag draped coffin really means .... Here is how to understand the flag that laid upon it and is surrendered to so many widows and widowers.

Do you know that at military funerals, the 21-gun salute stands for the sum of the numbers in the year 1776?


Have you ever noticed the honor guard pays meticulous attention to correctly folding the United States of America Flag 13 times? You probably thought it was to symbolize the original 13 colonies, but we learn something new every day!

The 1st fold of the flag is a symbol of life.


The 2nd fold is a symbol of the belief in eternal life


The 3rd fold is made in honor and remembrance of the veterans departing the ranks who gave a portion of their lives for the defense of the country to attain peace throughout the world.


The 4th fold represents the weaker nature, for as American citizens trusting in God, it is to Him we turn in times of peace as well as in time of war for His divine guidance.


The 5th fold is a tribute to the country, for in the words of Stephen Decatur, 'Our Country, in dealing with other countries, may she always be right; but it is still our country, right or wrong.'


The 6th fold is for where people's hearts lie. It is with their heart that they pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America , and the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all.

The 7th fold is a tribute to its Armed Forces, for it is through the Armed Forces that they protect their country and their flag against all her enemies, whether they be found within or without the boundaries of their republic.

The 8th fold is a tribute to the one who entered into the valley of the shadow of death, that we might see the light of day.


The 9th fold is a tribute to womanhood, and Mothers. For it has been through their faith, their love, loyalty and devotion that the character of the men and women who have made this country great has been molded.

The 10th fold is a tribute to the father, for he, too, has given his sons and daughters for the defense of their country since they were first born.


The 11th fold represents the lower portion of the seal of King David and King Solomon and glorifies in the Hebrews eyes, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.


The 12th fold represents an emblem of eternity and glorifies, in the Christians eyes, God the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit.

The 13th fold, or when the flag is completely folded, the stars are uppermost reminding them of their Nations motto, 'In God We Trust.'


After the flag is completely folded and tucked in, it takes on the appearance of a cocked hat, ever reminding us of the soldiers who served under General George Washington, and the Sailors and Marines who served under Captain John Paul Jones, who were followed by their comrades and shipmates in the Armed Forces of the United States, preserving for them the rights, privileges and freedoms they enjoy today.

There are some traditions and ways of doing things that have deep meaning. In the future, you'll see flags folded and now you will know why. Share this with the children you love and all others who love what is referred to, the symbol of ' Liberty and Freedom.'



Our Soldiers have preserved your right to make this choice!

Omaha Herald Has GUTS!

First I want to Thank Wendy for keeping in the loop. XOXOXO.
This is also on the wall of the editor of the Omaha Herald paper. How many other paper would have the guts to put this picture and story on the front page.

Leading the fight is U S Marine Gunnery Sgt. Michael Burghardt, known as 'Iron Mike' or just 'Gunny'.
He had become a legend in the bomb disposal world after winning the Bronze Star for disabling 64 IEDs and destroying 1,548 pieces of ordnance during his second tour.
Then, on September 19, he got blown up. He had arrived at a chaotic scene after a bomb had killed four US Marines. He chose not to wear the bulky bomb protection suit. 'You can't react to any sniper fire and you get tunnel-vision,' he explains. So, protected by just a helmet and standard-issue flak jacket, he began what bomb disposal officers term 'the longest walk', stepping gingerly into a 5 foot deep and 8 foot wide crater. The earth shifted slightly and he saw a Senao base station with a wire leading from it. He cut the wire and used his 7 inch knife to probe the ground. 'I found a piece of red detonating cord between my legs,' he says. 'That's when I knew I was screwed.' Realizing he had been sucked into a trap, Sgt. Burghardt, 35, yelled at everyone to stay back. At that moment, an insurgent, probably watching through binoculars, pressed a button on his mobile phone to detonate the secondary device below the sergeant's feet 'A chill went up the back of my neck and then the bomb exploded,' he recalls. 'As I was in the air I remember thinking, 'I don't believe they got me..' I was just ticked off they were able to do it. Then I was lying on the road, not able to feel anything from the waist down.' His fellow Marines cut off his trousers to see how badly he was hurt. None could believe his legs were still there 'My dad's a Vietnam vet who's paralyzed from the waist down,' says Sgt Burghardt. 'I was lying there thinking I didn't want to be in a wheelchair next to my dad and for him to see me like that. They started to cut away my pants and I felt a real sharp pain and blood trickling down. Then I wiggled my toes and I thought, 'Good, I'm in business.' As a stretcher was brought over, adrenaline and anger kicked in. 'I decided to walk to the helicopter. I wasn't going to let my team-mates see me being carried away on a stretcher.' He stood and gave the insurgents who had blown him up a one-fingered salute. ‘I flipped them one’. It was like, 'OK, I lost that round but I'll be back next week.'

Copies of a photograph depicting his defiance, taken by Jeff Bundy for the Omaha World-Herald, adorn the walls of homes across America and that of Col John Gronski, the brigade commander in Ramadi, who has hailed the image as an exemplar of the warrior spirit.

Sgt Burghardt's injuries - burns and wounds to his legs and buttocks - kept him off duty for nearly a month and could have earned him a ticket home. But, like his father - who was awarded a Bronze Star and three Purple Hearts for being wounded in action in Vietnam - he stayed in Ramadi to engage in the battle against insurgents who are forever coming up with more ingenious ways of killing Americans.

That is just wrong

Not sure how most of you all feel but I wanted to share as we all have a say in life. Thank you Wendy for Sharing this with me.

Our military is by far the most under paidand supported of goverment and yet congress is so over paid and over supported.
That is just wrong.
No one has been able to explain to me why young men and women serve in the U.S. Military for 20 years, risking their lives protecting freedom, and only get 50% of their pay. While Politicians hold their political positions in the safe confines of the capital, protected by these same men and women, and receive full pay retirement after serving one term. It just does not make any sense.

Monday on Fox news they learned that the staffers of Congress family members are exempt from having to pay back student loans. This will get national attention if other news networks will broadcast it. When you add this to the below, just where will all of it stop?

35 States file lawsuit against the Federal Government... Governors of 35 states have filed suit against the Federal Government for imposing unlawful burdens upon them. It only takes 38 (of the 50) States to convene a Constitutional Convention. This will take less than thirty seconds to read. If you agree, pass it on. This is an idea that we should address.

For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress. Many citizens had no idea that members of Congress could retire with the same pay after only one term, that they specifically exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed (such being exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment)while ordinary citizens must live under those laws. The latest is to exempt themselves from the Healthcare Reform... in all of its forms. Somehow, that doesn't seem logical. We do not have an elite that is above the law. I truly don't care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent or whatever. The self-serving must stop.

If each person that reads this will forward or tell it to 20 people, in three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message...

This is one proposal that really should be passed around.

Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution:

"Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States."

By reading this YOU are one of my 20+, Please pass it on.

Was Tina Dying in My Arms?

Tina and Baby
You missed all my excitement last nite. My Tina had babies, 2 but only 1 made it. :( The other one is a tiny black one ... Of course I did not know she was expecting puppies. I even took her to the Vet on the 17th. For a rabies shot. Doctor said nothing about why I was worried about Tina putting on so much weight. Apparently Tina got hooked up with a male about 4 days before I got her. The past owners have not called me back so I figure they know or knew about.

First Mug Shot
Any way here is a short short.... Yesterday the 19th of March, Tina is coiled up on the couch, relaxing and I or course was on the computer. Some bad weather was coming in then there was a thunder clap. "Bam" . Tina come running over to me and jumped into my lap and then I picked her up an cradled her in my arms, She seemed really nervous, I asked if she wanted to go outside before the rain came on in. I looked away and back at Tina. I was in horror I knew Tina had a upset stomach so I thought earlier that morning, even had to give her a bath because so was all green from the back half of her. So now I am just staring at Tina and this mess that just popped out her. I was panicking I just thought her gut just came out! While asking Tina if she was alright my mind is racing trying to make sense of all this. As I looked closer I decided that there was something is that bag of mess that looked like a puppy.... How that happen Tina? After I asking her if she wanted out side I had quickly put a leash on her collar and had stepped out side with Tina, that was went I had looked away. Now I quickly decided to put Tina in the corn of the bedroom with a blanket... I was going crazy and I was by myself and Tina and now one or more puppies on the way... the Marine Corps did not teach me how to do this ... nor did Mom. :) So now I am looking for a name for the baby that means "Black Thunder", any ideas?

* The second puppy died after 24 hours - To say the least Tina and I are heart broken. :(  But now when we hear the thunder it will always remind us of her!

The Grumman Goose...

One of my favorite aircrafts no matter what flight simulator it runs on...

The Grumman Goose Uploaded by JayKae2

The Grumman Goose first took to the skies in 1936 during the golden years of aviation and was immortalised in the TV series "Tales of the Gold Monkey". Within the sim fraternity there have been a number of addon versions of this classic aeroplane and Microsoft's rendition of this rare and famous aircraft leapt into our simulated skies towards the end of 2006 with the release of the final version of their long running simulator series - FSX.

The Grumman Goose itself is extremely rare with only 345 airframes produced. There are approximately 60 remaining in service throughout the world today and the number of pilots with endorsements on this type are few and far between. We have been lucky enough to have access to a pilot who has flown the Goose and has been able to assist with our remodelling of the aircraft's performance files.
The Goose has proven extremely versatile and has seen operational service as a freighter, passenger transport, military transport and even as a flying yacht installed with bars and toilets. It has held roles with Army, Airforce, Navy, Coastguard and has served around the far flung, four corners of the world.

Microsoft's model of the G21A Grumman Goose has been a sleeper; well received in certain quarters but providing generally ho-hum graphics and flight model. It had a bland interior and was crying out for some high quality paints. When the team at AussieX started investigating this aircraft for our HD Redux treatment it was also discovered that the performance files for this bird were derived from an assortment of different Goose models; a lot of fine tuning was going to be required to get this bird to behave as close to the real life aircraft as possible.

We think we have succeeded with this ambitous tasking. We offer two different models of the Goose - the original model with 450hp Pratt & Whitney radials and an uprated version dubbed the 'HP' (High Performance) with more powerful 650hp engines. Both models have had significant performance tweaking to make them behave as much as possible like their real life counterparts. In addition to this remodelling of the flight characteristics we have overhauled the interior of the aircraft with high resolution virtual cockpits. Engine gauges have been recalibrated for both engine models of our Goose and there are a number of different virtual cockpits available in our aircraft.

Finally we have provided six high-definition paint schemes for this aircraft in both 450hp and HP-650hp versions. These 4096 pixel textures include every rivet, screw, dent and panel-line hand placed on normal, specular and diffusion texture maps. What this means for you the pilot is a gorgeous rendition of the metal framed G21 Goose just waiting to grace your monitor with realism and authenticity.

It's Tina's Birthday Today

Today Tina is 6 years old. We will be having heart shaped white cake and vanilla ice cream. She is nice and comfy on her pillows at the end of the couch next to me. She always keeps track of me, keeping me in-line. She has had a month to train me and teach me how to make her world a sweeter place.

Mad Hawk 300

I now live in a housing project, so I have been thinking about getting a helicopter to fly in the house. This looking pretty good. It fly as stable as those co-axial jobs. What do you think? It is a Mad Hawk 300. They have a link here . It have even have navigational lights and retracts on the wheels. I have shot an email to them still waiting on a reply to some questions.  You can also go to You Tube and look there  but here is a short review.

Welcome Home Tiny

Tiny, On the trip Home
Tiny has a new home! Here are a few pictures below of her. But first how it all started. 
It started with this ad in the weekly paper that I get on Wednesdays. 

Chihuahua Puppies!
* Home Raised!
* 2 females
* 1 male
* 4 females ready for Valentines's Day!
Call or Text
I had this ad for about a week, thinking about it and waiting for my next payday to arrive. My neighbor Holly knew I was stressing myself out over missing my puppies from back home, but did not know about the ad. After a week or so I decided to call even though my payday had not arrived. I called and talked for about half an hour or more trying to see that puppies I could afford. All I could say was, "I am not sure I can afford one but I really missed mine and wanted a tiny little female Chihuahua puppy."  After a while we came to the idea that there was a small female Chihuahua, Tiny was her name. She was a rescue puppy from a breeder that kept her in a wired kennel for much of her 4 years.  Not yet to have a home to call her own. Holly also found this ad and brought it to me the same day, I called. I told her that I found the same ad and finally called the number. So after some emails back and forth I nailed down I time and place to go get my new puppy, Tiny. This February Tiny will be 6 years, we will celebrate our birthday together on the 18th.  Tiny's full name is a mouth full: "Tiny KLM's Dontee Pocketmouse". I am thinking about a shorter name: "Tiny Tina Leigh Elliott".  She is just Precious, Sweet and Loving, very easy to spoil. She already has me at her command. :) .   If you are looking for some beautiful home grown Chihuahua puppies call this number.  Tiny Tina and I are sure glad I did.   

Friday, January 14, 2011


I may have a lead to a beautiful Chihuahua, I will know more after the 18th. Details to follow.... I have asked if they have a website we could follow here  on my blog.... Stay Tuned.

Say Hi to Tiny!

Wish us Luck!

Happy New Year,

Yes I know it has been a while,  Winter struck... and I had my laptop recalled. I now living in a nice warm apartment here in Mansfield. Yippee.  Sprained my ankle while moving, but finished it in record time. Let me tell you it is so nice to have my laptop back.  My friends have all been great helping me get settled in. I still need a few things to make life a little more comfortable but I am doing just fine.   As the new year came in, I decided that life is not too bad. I have a Truck, and now a warm apartment. My laptop is back (Yippee) Oh I did say that, guess you know how much it means to me. Have you ever heard the phrase " All my friends live in my computer!", well it is almost true. Some come and go, but a few stay around. Yahoo, Facebook,  and email keep me busy.  I now have TV and radio, but I still download the shows and watch them on the computer to save me from all the commercials. I need to get down serious and find my Chihuahua. I truly miss my little girls my home (Sugar Marie, Peaches, Susie, and Precious) They are with my Mother and my Ex-Wife. I know they are well loved and cared for. Time to find another sweet girl. Maybe I will catchup with Mellina and Rebbecca soon I hope that would be nice to. that would top off everything and make the world just right.   OK Later guys.
