They say...

Reactions: 
when one of these shows up expect rain soon...
Well... It did start raining moments after I arrived home from MD's place last night and it was after the spider showed up too while we were watching CSI!
That Rain Spider was a good 100mm from leg to leg by the way... when I first saw it scooting up the wall I almost jumped in MD's lap... but all was well as she calmly got an empty 2l bottle, cut the top off and used it to scoop Spidey up and took him outside. I just watched and kept thinking happy thoughts... yeah you gueassed... I suffer from Arachnophobia.

The itsy bitsy spider climbed up the water spout. 
Down came the rain and washed the spider out. 
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain. 
And the itsy bitsy spider climbed up the spout again.  
Nursery rhyme.

Waiting...

Reactions: 
Angelic Voice par excellence... this song blows my socks off!


Fading of the day
as night takes over
and I can almost feel
you here

Your memory remains
I breath it closer
I swear that I still feel you near

The cool wind is taking over
it’s taking over

So far away
you’re gone so long
ohh and I’m waiting

Till that day
I take you home
know that I’m waiting
know that I’m waiting
know that I’m waiting

Haunted by your grace
you know I’m falling
so cool without you
always in my mind
I hear you calling

Haunted by your grace
you know I’m falling
so cool without you
always in my mind
I hear you calling

So far away
you’re gone so long
ohh and I’m waiting

So far away
you’re gone so long
ohh and I’m waiting

Till that day
I take you home
know that I’m waiting
know that I’m waiting

Haunted by your grace
the beauty of falling (falling)
it echoes through my days
I still hear you calling
you calling me

The cool wind is taking over
it’s taking over
still your
so far away
you’re gone so long
ohh and I’m waiting

Till that day
I take you home
know that I’m waiting

So far away
you’re gone so long
ohh and I’m waiting

Till that day
I take you home
know that I’m waiting


The music on this track is just amazing but to put it in proper perspective here is the acoustic version, Emma's voice still remains angelic.


Emma has one of the most amazing voices on the Dance/Trance scene, I bet she would be able to make it in any genre as well. In the meantime I will continue to listen to this music as well as most other genres. I love music!
“Since the early days of humankind, dancing was always an expression of feeling good, and making someone feel good is the main intention of DJ’ing. I don’t see the point of playing a record that makes people stand there, look at you and say “Umm, very interesting” – Paul van Dyk

Maybe it's not so strange...

Reactions: 
that so many people that are so vociferously anti Israel seem to be anti God as well. Let me remind them of what God says about it all in the Bible.
Genesis 12 v2-3
2 “I will make you into a great nation,
and I will bless you;
I will make your name great,
and you will be a blessing.[a]
3 I will bless those who bless you,
and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
will be blessed through you.”

This does not just mean back in Abram's time but today as well, the country Israel is fulfilling biblical prophecy and as such we Christians cannot turn our back on them as we are part of the Olive.
Romans 11:17 New International Version (NIV)
If some of the branches have been broken off, and you, though a wild olive shoot, have been grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing sap from the olive root,

I truly believe that we should pray for Israel every day, for their protection and for them to come to understand that their Messiah has already completed his work of salvation for all mankind.
Do not turn your back on Israel like so many are doing these days, we have already been blessed once, let us continue receiving more blessings while supporting Israel in prayer and in spirit.
"For he himself is our shalom, he has made us one body and has broken down the m'chitzah which divided us." The Complete Jewish Bible, Ephesians chapter 2verse 14

Oi Vey!!!

Reactions: 

This would be serious, fortunately she was saved by the police in spite of the headline!
The quote is fitting and classic as well!

Be aware, ride safe!

Reactions: 

Some parts of the clips used are not quite in context but the general message is brought home to both Cagers and Bikers alike...
Get home safe, be aware, bring all road users home safe.

How soon we forget

Reactions: 
It was ten years ago...

It changed our world.
But did it change us?
Some of us will never forget others seem to have forgotten, I hope that those who have forgotten never have to witness something like this again.
This song from Demi Lovato seems to sum up the feelings of that day and how people rose out of the heartache.

"Skyscraper" Sung by Demi Lovato - Songwriters: Robbins, Lindy / Gad, Toby / Kerli


Skies are crying, I am watching
Catching tear drops in my hands
Only silence, as it's ending
Like we never had a chance

Do you have to make me feel like
There's nothing left of me?

You can take everything I have
You can break everything I am
Like I'm made of glass
Like I'm made of paper
Go on and try to tear me down
I will be rising from the ground
Like a skyscraper
Like a skyscraper

As the smoke clears, I awaken
and untangle you from me
Would it make you, feel better
to watch me while I bleed?

All my windows still are broken
But I'm standing on my feet

You can take everything I have
You can break everything I am
Like I'm made of glass
Like I'm made of paper
Go on and try to tear me down
I will be rising from the ground
Like a skyscraper
Like a skyscraper

Go run, run, run
I'm gonna stay right here, watch you disappear
Yea--ohh
Go run, run, run
Yeah, it's a long way down
But I am closer to the clouds up here

You can take everything I have
You can break everything I am
Like I'm made of glass
Like I'm made of paper
Ohh Ohhhh!
Go on and try to tear me down
I will be rising from the ground
Like a skyscraper
Like a skyscraper

(Like a skyscraper)

Like a skyscraper
Like a skyscraper


"How do I respond when I see that in some Islamic countries there is vitriolic hatred for America? I'll tell you how I respond: I'm amazed. I'm amazed that there is such misunderstanding of what our country is about, that people would hate us. I am, I am -- like most Americans, I just can't believe it. Because I know how good we are, and we've go to do a better job of making our case. We've got to do a better job of explaining to the people in the Middle East, for example, that we don't fight a war against Islam or Muslims. We don't hold any religion accountable. We're fighting evil. And these murderers have hijacked a great religion in order to justify their evil deeds. And we cannot let it stand." --George W. Bush, press conference
