Just want to wish everyone a WONDERFUL NEW YEAR!!  ;)

 

I am a firm believer if we set our focus on the the bad things in our life, we will find nothing but the negative.. 

 

And if we seek out the good qualities, we will find ourselves surrounded by the positive... 

 

I feel the same way about people.

 

We all have our flaws and weaknesses; but if we seek out the "goodness" in others, we can surely find something positive they may have to offer. Make the decision to find the POSITIVE in EVERYTHING! 

 

There is nothing stronger than the human mind, and we are what we feed it.

 

HERE'S TO A NEW YEAR FILLED WITH OVER-FLOWING POSITIVE MEMORIES!! 

 

   ~~~~HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE~~~~

Guess they didn't tell ya the Captain was wavin and winkin at me first...... it was that co-pilot that got all in a tizzy havin to do most of the work!

Quoting Hope...
 
"YES WONDROUS, WONDERFUL WINDY!! THE GLITCH IS FIXED! THE GLITCH IS FIXED!! :)
 
Now, about the "fur suit!" Well, I was just messin around a few days ago and I thought to meself.. Hmmm... I wonder what it might feel like to change transportation modes. Ya know, the old broom is all beat up... I had some issues with the fuel tank and Lord knows how awful she's been riding lately with all the birds I fly into. They really take a zap outta ER....
 
Now about those long legged men and WINDY my dear! WHAT R YAS DOIN' TELLIN EVERYONE 'BOUT THE TWINS!! Cantcha keep no MO secrets!!! I swear, telling you sumtin behind closed doors is 'bout like taking a mega phone to a football game and cheering on the opposing team! JEEZ LOUISE!!! So.. 'bout those twins... *wink... Heeheehee.. Guess I best keep that info under my hat.. um.. ER.. broom!!
 
Oh and speaking of newer models that ride faster and smoother! I am considering the "HARRY POTTER Double oo9 Model" .. and of course she's a HEMI!
 
LOOK! I was trying one out at the "Broom dealership" earlier.. The stupid salesman was getting irritated with me, but I told him point blank.. "A Princess must surely try out a prospective mode of transportation around a cloud or two before she purchases!!" I swear... Ya drive into ONE 747 ONE TIME and I suddenly feel like Dick Cheney at a gun range!! I coulda swore I heard someone say HIDE THE BULLETS NELLIE!!!!! 
 
Well, I know I've been ramblin, so I'll leave you go now.. But here's a pic of my photo at the dealership! I'm looking a little under the weather he?"
 
**********     **********     **********     **********     **********     **********     **********     **********    
 
 
Oh for Pete's sake, get real you crazy broomster. The twins were never a secret. The way they screamed the first time ya buzzed them was loud enough to be heard in Canada. And everybody I told I made promise not to tell. Only told anyway 'cause I wanted payback for that Hawaii mishap you blabbed all over the globe. It was months afore folks quit gigglin' every time they saw me. Embarrassing, it was. And that fly-by make-out attack weren't no accident...it was nothin' more than greed...plain and simple...first one and then the other. You think I really believed you when you told me you kept geitin' 'em mixed up? With all the crap stuck to that broom of yours, they thought they'd been attacked by a pterodactyl. Last I heard they were out wandering around the hills talkin' to themselves.. Ya gotta start watchin' where you're goin'...I don't have any more room to house the birds until their feathers grow back in, and their feed is costin' me a fortune. Think we should tell Pat to keep an eye out fer them twins? They weren't far from her place when ya attacked 'em.
 
You go ahead and get that HP Double 009 with the fancy HEMI...I'll pit my supercharged 409 against it any day. Twiggy may be old, but she's faster than a sound wave being chased by a blip. I'll race ya to the moon and back this commin' Halloween. Winner pays for the repairs on the 747.
 
Speaking of that little airplane thing...the captain said you were passing them at high speed when you spied that new steward serving them coffee and you just broke the window and grabbed the poor thing by the back of his neck. If it werem't for the size of the window, you'd have gotten him, too. That weren't your first try, either. Last week I got a call from the ground crew chief of that big, new airbus, and he said to tell you they're running hotwire through all the windows on that one. Not a chance you can nab any of their passengers. Told him you probably won't listen. If yer silly enough to try to pull a 6'4" man through a 10 X 12 inch window...a little thing like the possibility of getting' cooked in mid air won't stop ya.
 
That picture is awful...you look like you just drank a pint of nightshade. And if that's the new broom you're thinkin' bout getting'...don't bother ridin' it up here before summer. You ever see what cold weather does to balloons? It's 35 below here tonight and you wouldn't make it an hour afore you'd be thumbin' a ride, and they're mighty hard to come by when these clippers blow in.

Guess you know by now you're no longer a ghost...I can see you! Either MM fixed the glitch or your idea about addressing me worked...either way, it's good to see you up and running...er...flying around.
 
Who'd you steal those wings and fancy fur suit from, anyway? You didn't trade off bodies with my friend Carla again, did you? I keep telling you no matter how small you think you are, every time you do that I end up having to take her skin in again. Her pups have complained ever since you started doing this. They all say her skin has been stretched and taken in so many times, when they were born, they had to stand on their heads to nurse! 
 
You could just go back to traveling like the rest of us...by broom...or is your's in the shop again? If you wouldn't keep chasing those long-legged men every time we fly, that old broom of yours wouldn't be in such bad shape. You know that old thing isn't fast enough to catch them...and you really do need new brakes. I can't keep pulling you out of the branches, and the last time your handle went all the way through that cedar when you were in pursuit of those twins.  Mine is almost twice as old and it still runs beautifully. Okay, so there was that one time in Mexico, and maybe a few times in Hawaii. Stop your laughing...so Canada and the Bahamas and Australia slipped my mind. (Maybe we both need to invest new, faster models?)

Quoting Lady Di...
"Yes!!  Very clever indeed!  That's what the blogs are all about.....caring and sharing!  lolol
 
Interestingly, often patients that have long term intravenous catheters inserted come down with bacterial infections in their bloodstream.  If the cultures grows out positive for bacteria, then we usually follow up with an additional fungal culture.  If positive for fungus, we usually begin treatment automatically for yeast.....unless....the patient states they have had contact with bats.  Then we will usually do a fungal culture for specific identification of the fungus....which is very costly and takes about 2 weeks to get a result.  So....this must mean that bats carry odd types of fungus....and perhaps what is killing them is some kind of mutant fungus????  Maybe they are keeping the people out in case it's transmissable to the people.
 
This is very bad.  No bats = Lots of mosquitoes!  Bats are very cool mammals and save farmers many millions by eating bugs and pests.
**********     **********     **********     **********     **********     **********     **********     *******
 
I love bats. They used to fly in the loading doors at a huge plant in the town north of me and I'd catch as many as I could and bring them home. I haven't found their home yet...I'd just put them in the hay barn and they'd fly out at night to find a place they liked that didn't have so much activity. I'd also get the ones 'hanging around' on the outside of the buildings and take them home. In the daylight, if you go slowly, they'll just step onto anything gently put under their feet and then I'd pop them into a bag I carry in the truck and home we'd go. They're so beautiful. I've handled them all my life and never had any health issues because of it. It's pretty easy to tell if they're healthy or not...at least about 90 percent of the time it is.
 
Hope...the answer to your musings about humans spreading our diseases to animals...the answer is yes. There are many diseases they can catch from us. People who have birds, for instance, and let them eat food from their own mouths are putting that pet at great risk. There are a lot of bacteria in the human mouth that can make a bird extremely ill, and in too many instances...kill them. Many other species also can be infected with human diseases. People who love their animals take the time to find out these things by talking to their vets and/or going online.

Hi Diana – perhaps a better answer than my long winded one is something like -- another part of wisdom is knowing when a fight is worth the bother, knowing when you can make a difference, and then wading into the fray. 

 

I can’t always live up to that one either.

RMAC... LOVE IT!! Esp the part of "making a difference!"

Wise words, our wise owl!! ;))))

But I still think our Lovely Lady DI allows her heart to get in the way of reason now and again! ;)

Hi WINDY, LADY DI and RMAC...

 

I just read about White Nose..  a fungus growing in northern caves, found in New York state in 2006. They are concerned 2 species of bats may become extinct. (Indiana bats and Northern Long-eared) They spread the fungus from bat to bat, akin to humans spreading a common cold. The more "gregarious" bats are at most risk! Tennessee is making an "artificial cave" for bats that will not have the fungus.. 

 

The CDC warns us bats carry several diseases, aside from rabies, that are fatal to humans, some carried by them, and some in their droppings... Makes me wonder if we have diseases that make animals ill? 

 

Hmmm.... 

 

If you ask me.. 

 

THINGS ARE GETTIN' A LITTLE BATTY IN HERE!! 

 

Heeheehee~~

That is, of course a risk.  Balance in all things I suppose. 

 

I have a friend, who is so agreeable that after a long visit of spirited discussion you would think he agreed with you on everything.  He is not just quiet on the subject, but actually adds supporting words. 

 

One of my other friends, believing she had an ally waded into an argument and discovered she was all alone; disastrous results.   I had figured him out, but she had not. 

 

I think it was Eric Hoffer who said that without putting people under extreme duress, you can’t change anyone’s mind on anything.  Hence the sleep deprivation, no free time to think, ridiculous levels of physical harassment, and so on used to convert ordinary young men (and now sometimes ordinary young women) into someone capable of killing another human being. 

 

Even so, it does not work entirely.  I forget the exact percentages, but in their first battles, something like 40% die without ever firing their weapon.   Thus the value of battle hardened troops.  They are much more effective. 

 

Just so you know, if you do not.  I greatly admire your position on almost everything.  I think you are one of the neat people. 

 

RMac

Quoting Windrider735:

Hope my little Princess...the reason the bat caves were closed is due to White-nose syndrome. It's killed an estimated 80% of the bats in North America...with numbers climbing steadily. Most bat caves have been closed because we don't know if something was tracked in on someone's shoes that started this disease or if it's spread through humans entering these caves. What we do know is that it's a white fungus that seems to manifest itself during hibernation. It's frightening to think of the possibility that these unique, beautiful creatures are heading toward extinction in North America. If and when we do find a cure, their recovery will be very slow. They are long lived and only produce one pup a year, so even under 'normal' conditions, their numbers fluctuate very little.
 
 
 Aren't you clever to find a way to make people aware of this plight? Thank you for that. It really isn't something that comes up in every day discussions...well, at least with most people.

WINDY! WINDY!! WINDY!!! TRY TO EMBARRASS YOU? ME? HA!!!! 
 
What are my POSITIVE feelings about you? 
 
WINDY, I think you are absolutely AWESOME! Kindness is your center core. You display this in your love and devotion to animals. Beyond this, what I view is how you try to see both sides of a situation and try to give others the beneft of the doubt. Your inner core believes in "goodness"... Not a quality all necessarily posses, but yet you search to find it.
 
In many ways we are similar, but it is our differences I have come to enjoy the most. I cannot for the life of me comprehend trying to save a poisonous snake, (or any snake for that matter! HEE!) But you see "value" and "beauty" in every living creature and I enjoy your insight on matters due to this. I feel kind of badly about my mink now, but THANK YOU for accepting me as I am! I also enjoy your tactful honesty. You don't miss words, yet you have an elegance about how you portray them. 
 
I really admire you Windy and I hope to one day visit you at the farm... But once again... 
 
I AIN'T STICKIN MY HAND IN THE HAY!! :))))))
 
This is a turtle I made my friend pick up and save from getting run over in the road. I'm too afraid to pick them up when they are that big, so he did it for me. I filmed the rescue! ;)
 
            ~~!!!!SAVE THE TURTLES!!!!~~"
 
 
Thank you Hope, you're so sweet. You really are a very special lady, and you know I feel the same about you.
 
As for the turtle picture, it's beautiful. That's actually a tortoise, although they're called box turtles. Can't sex it without being able to look at the underside of the shell and the tail, but my guess is that it's at least 20 years old to be that large. They can live for a hundred years if they're healthy. You did a good thing...even if it was by proxy!  
 
About coming for a visit...Not to worry...I Don't Have Snakes In My Hay. They're not overly fond of being rolled up in a bale and snugged down with twine for the winter. I build them lovely dens to pass the cold months in...they don't need to join their ancestors being squished in the bales! I do have a lot of other things you've said you don't like though...mice and rats and spiders and such...just not in the house and barn. Okay, the spiders are in the barn...they keep insects down, but the rodents get re-homed in the fields. How do you feel about bats and large moths? It's a farm, it's full of life in every form...that's what makes it such a great life. ;-)

BATS!!! MOTHS!!!! 

 

I went to "BATCAVE" when I went hiking and rock climbing in Chimney Rock, NC a few months back and guess what.. The caves were CLOSED due to ... Um... BAT ACTIVITY!!

 

I told the guy.. "Are you serious! Why name it BAT CAVE then!!!"

 

BUT.. as with rats, snakes, lizards, frogs.. rodents, etc... 

 

CREEEEPPYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!! 

 

But you know WINDY.... At least a Princess could feel "safe" with you around handling all them varments!! I can't imagine being around snakes or building them dens!! When I was a little girl we went to Mexico from the deer lease in Laredo, Texas... and I recall I was running around a corner all excited while we were shopping store to store.. This man was standing outside the store with a SNAKE!!!! I came around that corner and this snake was right in my little face... I got startled and scared and I started crying! (I endured some serious trauma as a child!! LOL) Turns out.. It was a PLASTIC, hand held snake that had like links in it that made it move when manipulated.. HAHA! 

 

SCARRED FOR LIFE I TELL YA! ;)

Quoting fishyme:

  Aaaaa Hoping,I so cyber love you,your making me blush.Why don't you take your mariner training and start looking on the west coast?They have big boats also and the women don't seem to have as much crap to deal with as you've mentioned before.A more confendent professional group of sailors?

 

  The picture is from the United States Coast Guard,day 1 of the grounding.It warmed up here,+34F daytime high so I've not been online much.The rig has been floated as of yesterday,awwww Crap!If you go to Anchorage Daily News you can get the whole story/'s,a few pictures,I think 1 60 second fly around.I'm hoping this will shut drilling in the Artic Ocean down.The flotilla they have right now off Kodiak,very well travled waters,would still be trying to get to the Artic Ocean.A B.P.type of blow out there would devastate that region.The storm blew the rig and 2 very powerful tugs backwards 10 miles in 1 hour before grounding.

 

  @ Diana,After having Joe Hazelwood park his oil tanker.the Exxon Valdez,loaded with some of the most sophisticated electronics money can buy on a reef that Captain James Cook found 200 years before with a rock and string IN FLAT CLAM WEATHER,all of big oil knows what their doing.Laws changed in my 20 years of court over that,B.P.paid fast because of what 30,000 of us were put through.Shell will be handed a bill [in public,lmao].


Ahhhhh FISHY!! I love seeing you blush! BTW.. I am cleaning the camera lens as it is almost time for your "Polar Bear" debue!!!! WINDY GRAB THE TAPE! (Or was that LIV with the tape?) 

 

FISHY.....

 

WINDY and I were discussing drilling.. I am ALL FOR IT.. But she was saying we have "safer" places to drill, so I am open minded on WHERE we position our drilling, but not educated enough yet to have all the facts and make a clear assessment. I have considered schooling to become a DP operator... But I guess I am still lost on whether I belong on land or at sea.... Hmmm....  Mermaid Princess? Heehee~~ 

 

I am currently reviewing my new VS catalog with swim suits... Does it EVER warm up enough anywhere in Alaska for a bikini? or is an "Eskimo suit" the closest thing to "sexy" one can see!! LOL..

Beyond this, what I view is how you try to see both sides of a situation and try to give others the beneft of the doubt. Your inner core believes in "goodness"... Not a quality all necessarily posses, but yet you search to find it.
 
In many ways we are similar, but it is our differences I have come to enjoy the most. I cannot for the life of me comprehend trying to save a poisonous snake, (or any snake for that matter! HEE!) But you see "value" and "beauty" in every living creature and I enjoy your insight on matters due to this. I feel kind of badly about my mink now, but THANK YOU for accepting me as I am! I also enjoy your tactful honesty. You don't miss words, yet you have an elegance about how you portray them. 
 
I really admire you Windy and I hope to one day visit you at the farm... But once again... 
 
I AIN'T STICKIN MY HAND IN THE HAY!! :))))))
 
This is a turtle I made my friend pick up and save from getting run over in the road. I'm too afraid to pick them up when they are that big, so he did it for me. I filmed the rescue! ;)

Thank you Hope, you're so sweet. You really are a very special lady, and you know I feel the same about you.
 
As for the turtle picture, it's beautiful. That's actually a tortoise, although they're called box turtles. Can't sex it without being able to look at the underside of the shell and the tail, but my guess is that it's at least 20 years old to be that large. They can live for a hundred years if they're healthy. You did a good thing...even if it was by proxy!  
 
About coming for a visit...Not to worry...I Don't Have Snakes In My Hay. They're not overly fond of being rolled up in a bale and snugged down with twine for the winter. I build them lovely dens to pass the cold months in...they don't need to join their ancestors being squished in the bales! I do have a lot of other things you've said you don't like though...mice and rats and spiders and such...just not in the house and barn. Okay, the spiders are in the barn...they keep insects down, but the rodents get re-homed in the fields. How do you feel about bats and large moths? It's a farm, it's full of life in every form...that's what makes it such a great life. ;-)

                                                 ~~~~ HI EVERYONE!!!! ~~~~

 

I want to say a few POSITIVE words to reflect my feelings about you, so hope you (and others) are blessed and get to see what I see.... ;)

 

Sweet SARAH... There's a true reason I always refer to you as "sweet." You my dear, are such a blessing in this world. I admire your work with your children and cannot think of anyone I would want more to be "over-seeing" the kiddies! SARAH, I know you do everything you do from your heart and I am grateful we have genuine souls out there guiding the "little people." Sorry for the loss of your Father this year. I know he was very proud of you... As a Mother myself, I know you are a JOY as a daughter! 

 

RMAC.. You remind me, as I stated on one blog weeks ago, of the wise owl in the lollipop commercial. Anyone remember that commercial? (Little boy says "How many licks to get to the tootsie roll? Owl takes 3 bites and eats it and says, "3" RMAC... I enjoy your wisdom when you choose to speak sir. I get the feeling you were a very loving husband before your wife passed and I hope everyone takes a moment and truly "listens" when you speak! You too, are a blessing in this world! 

 

BEWELL- You really radiate in that picture! I know I told you before, but I can sense you were very happy at that moment! BEWELL, I truly have enjoyed your thoughts you share and I look forward to sharing my reads with you. I look for your read post now! BEWELL, I know you must be a great grandmother! I sense an "old soul" in you with a lot of vibrance in the mix! I enjoy how "open minded" and "accepting" you are of others. THAT, for me, is one of the most important qualities one can possess. I also feel this will be a very valuable asset for your grandchild(ren)... (I sense there will be ore than one!) BEWELL, there are so many times a child cannot come to the parents, but this is where a grandparent can really shine! Grandparents are not as critical or threatening and I hope you grow a strong connection with your little one, despite the distance! Don't forget the scrapbook we talked about before! 

 

COUNTRYCHEER- You haven't been around enough for me to know you well, but I will say, YOUR NAME CHEER SAYS IT ALL! Your smile radiates a "cheery" spirit and I bet you are one nutty and fun friend to have. Can't wait to get to know you more.. But honey, YOU GOTTA BLOG SO WE GET THE OPPORTUNITY TO KNOW YOU! LOL

 

CURIOUS- Well Ms. Pat.. What's to say? Pat, I view so many sides of you.. You are full of spunk and fire, and I admire the passion you possess when you get on a roll! It's funny B/C while you have such a "serious" side, you have a "spot on" funny side as well! I have enjoyed our conversing and I am just glad I almost always see things "Pats way"... cause you aren't as "nice" to spar with as Lady DI! HA! I also find you to be a very prolific writer and I hope you get to do something with the articles you have written. If someone can keep my A.D.D. attention span that long, THAT'S SHEER TALENT! I feel blessed to have met you through this site!

 

FISHY- Ah.. My FISHY! There are times where you are just a breath of fresh air my dear! I think what I have enjoyed most about you, aside from just the fact you are "real".. Well, I have enjoyed your "simplistic and logical" insight on several topics. I won't go into them in this forum, as I truly hope it stays on just complimenting what I so enjoy about you guys, but I share many of your views. FISHY, I sense in you many of the "good" qualitites my Father has, and NO, I don't mean in age.. I think you are somewhere in my age range? But I sense such a hard core worker and a genuine-ness (IS THAT A WORD? Lemme break out "The Princess dictionary! LOL) I know life in Alaska can surely not be easy.. I come from the land of "flip-flops" and muscle shirts with lots of sunshine and an easier way of living. Going grocery shopping is a chore for me in the cold! 15 layers of clothing, lugging coats etc.. Jeez! BUT... Your reward of the moose in the backyard etc.. WOW! Thanks for sharing that with us.. And I would LOVE to come VISIT! Even for a long period like 2 weeks.. BUT LIVE? I just don't think my "Princess Tiara" would look the same on me if it was frozen! 

 

NGL- SO GOOD TO SEE YOU BACK! NGL.. I truly "hope" you find love soon.. You appear to be a genuine "gentleman" and a very loving individual. I sense your "family" spirit when you write of your nephew and your own children and I just know in my heart you are an awesome man with a lot of love to offer the right woman! I hope she appears soon for you, but until then, stick with us a while will you? We enjoy your thoughts! I have learned much from reading your thoughts on dating and women etc... and I have a lot to learn about men, so just keep talking! LOL...

 

WELL GUYS AND GALS... GEMS AND GERMS.... (Hee hee.. *Scooby Snickers!)

 

I have sincerely enjoyed my time on here and am looking forward to a year filled with insights from all of you and others! I have watched myself grow and develop through this site due to observing and sharing with everyone over the past year and a half. I have enjoyed spending time with each of you and I anxiously await sharing and making more wonderful memories in 2013.... 

 

GOD BLESS~~ (and yes, I say and mean that regardless your beliefs!) 


  Aaaaa Hoping,I so cyber love you,your making me blush.Why don't you take your mariner training and start looking on the west coast?They have big boats also and the women don't seem to have as much crap to deal with as you've mentioned before.A more confendent professional group of sailors?

 

  The picture is from the United States Coast Guard,day 1 of the grounding.It warmed up here,+34F daytime high so I've not been online much.The rig has been floated as of yesterday,awwww Crap!If you go to Anchorage Daily News you can get the whole story/'s,a few pictures,I think 1 60 second fly around.I'm hoping this will shut drilling in the Artic Ocean down.The flotilla they have right now off Kodiak,very well travled waters,would still be trying to get to the Artic Ocean.A B.P.type of blow out there would devastate that region.The storm blew the rig and 2 very powerful tugs backwards 10 miles in 1 hour before grounding.

 

  @ Diana,After having Joe Hazelwood park his oil tanker.the Exxon Valdez,loaded with some of the most sophisticated electronics money can buy on a reef that Captain James Cook found 200 years before with a rock and string IN FLAT CLAM WEATHER,all of big oil knows what their doing.Laws changed in my 20 years of court over that,B.P.paid fast because of what 30,000 of us were put through.Shell will be handed a bill [in public,lmao].

Quoting rmac22:

Hope – Thanks for the kind words.  An owl?  Wisdom, I hope so.  Still, one part of wisdom is avoiding useless debate.  I sometimes fail to do so. 

 

RMac



RMAC... We are ALL "Guilty" of this... 

There is only so much tolerance that is allotted for "wisdom!" 

I do find I am much better at avoidance than I once was however! 

Yes, I know.. Hard to believe I was worse!!

I'm just a growing Princess... er.. Sea Witch! Heehee~

Quoting Windrider735:

Okay, Hope...

 

I'm late in wishing you a Happy New Year but only on your blog. You just want me to post so you can embarrass me...I know that's your motive. Go ahead...do your worst 'cause I'm wearing my barn boots and I'm ready to wade through deep she ite. Bring it on!!!  Bwhahahahahah..............

Seriously, you're a very special and gifted lady, and I'm privileged to call you my friend. I have a feeling this year is going to bring you many good things, and you deserve every one of them.
